L.A. County hospitals decompress as coronavirus continues gradual slowdown

Many Los Angeles County hospitals were beginning, to gradually return to normal, although patient levels still remained relatively high, health officials said Monday, Feb. 8. This was a welcomed sign of relief, officials said, after hospitals were stretched to their limits for weeks in response to a historic surge in new coronavirus patients that peaked a month ago. But it did not mean the county was completely out of the woods yet, officials warned. There were now 4,079 COVID-19 patients admitt...

Court pauses Oak Glen apple farm owner’s second lawsuit against educators

A federal judge has paused proceedings in a second lawsuit against school districts that canceled field trips following Oak Glen apple farm co-owner James Riley’s social media posts that some called “offensive” and “misogynistic.” In July 2020, U.S. District Court Judge Jesus G. Bernal struck down Riley’s first lawsuit against Claremont Unified School District, but Riley appealed. The second lawsuit was filed Aug. 27, 2020, against officials at Azusa, Bonita, Burbank, Corona-Norco, Culver City, ...

LAUSD’s Beutner appeals to local, state officials to join 60-day challenge to reopen schools

In a more conciliatory tone than the statement he fired off Friday — in which Los Angeles Unified schools chief Austin Beutner accused L.A. City Councilman Joe Buscaino of political grandstanding after the council member suggested looking at legal options to force LAUSD to reopen schools — the superintendent  on Monday, Feb. 8, appealed to “all who care so much about schools” to work toward a common goal. At the same time, Beutner, who also told city leaders to “stop scapegoating schools” in his...

Blair launches $100M facility to fund ISAs for students

Income-share agreements, or ISAs, have been gathering force as an alternative financial model for students, particularly at non-traditional schools like coding boot camps and trade schools. We’ve done over the years in terms of how these loan products incentivize students and colleges to work together for better professional outcomes. Given their novelty though, one of the largest barriers to wide adoption remains the lack of capital for these models. That’s starting to change, and com...

A New Yorker Cartoonist Explains How to Draw Literary Cartoons

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SsozkaBtMw “I enjoy poking fun at anything educated people do and civilized society perpetuates that is odd, frustrating, wacky, or hypocritical,” cartoonist Amy Kurzweil, above, recently told the New York Public Library’s Margo Moore. Unsurprisingly, she’s been getting published in The New Yorker a lot of late. The process for getting cartoons accepted there is the stuff of legend, though reportedly less grueling since Emma Allen, the magazine’s youngest...

He should donate it to the Smithsonian.                         —Bob Dylan on Brian Wilson The Beach Boys tarnished their reputation when they reformed in later years and tried to “reclaim their wholesomeness,” Dan Caffrey writes at Consequence of Sound, “only to find that it had all but disappeared.” But in the days when they sounded like the most wholesome thing on earth, they also had the distinct advantage of sounding serio...

Ethena, which sends bite-sized nudges for compliance training, shifts its focus amid new capital

Ethena co-founders Roxanne Petraeus and Anne Solmssen began their company with a clear goal: There needs to be a more modern, and effective, way to deploy anti-harassment training to employees. Ethena’s solution is to send employees bite-sized monthly “nudges” or pings with five-minute lessons, replacing the usual one-hour annual workshop with more flexible learning. The startup raised $2 million off of that vision in June, and today has announced it has raised follow-on funding with the same ex...

Coronavirus: Schools plan for potential of remote learning into the fall

By CAROLYN THOMPSON | Associated Press Parents of schoolchildren learning from home shouldn’t necessarily count on reclaiming the dining room table any time soon. After seeing two academic years thrown off course by the pandemic, school leaders around the country are planning for the possibility of more distance learning next fall at the start of yet another school year. “We have no illusions that COVID will be eradicated by the time the start of the school year comes up,” said William “Chip” Su...

Who To Follow on Social Media For Professional Development

A friend recently asked what sorts of great B2B content marketing stuff I’ve read lately that I could recommend and I realized... I haven’t read any in a really long time. Not because there isn’t any to be had per se, but because who and what I read has diverged very far from marketing over […]

Crowdsourced SciFi Dictionary is Time Travel Gateway

As a word merchant, dictionaries are my favorite books whether they are online or old school paper, and not because I am a less than stellar speller. The most fascinating are historical dictionaries, like the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), that trace a word’s life from its birth of first usage through its lexical and linguistic maturation. Words cannot describe my joy at discovering the new Historical Dictionary of Science Fiction (HD/SF), because the aerospace endeavors we today take for gran...

Watch a Korean Master Craftsman Make a Kimchi Pot by Hand, All According to Ancient Tradition

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlwnBy16W0E The South Korean capital of Seoul, where I live, has in the 21st century astonished visiting Westerners with its technology, its infrastructure, and its sheer urban vitality. It strikes many of those Westerners (and I include myself among them) as considerably more developed than anywhere in the countries they came from. But however much Seoul may feel like the future, nowhere in Korea has the past wholly vanished. Take the bulbous earthenware ...
