San Fernando Valley schools, daycares offered COVID-19 vaccines by local hospital

Teachers and staff at various schools and daycare centers throughout San Fernando Valley were recently offered COVID-19 vaccines after a local hospital reached out to them about getting vaccinated, despite the fact that educators younger than 65 aren’t yet eligible to receive the shots in most of Los Angeles County. The revelation came amid an ongoing debate as to how soon educators should be able to receive the vaccines, which remain in scant supply, as four in five seniors aged 65 and older in...

With coronavirus numbers still claiming disproportionately high numbers of Latino and Black lives, Los Angeles County officials on Wednesday said that workers in education, food, agricultural, and public safety will be eligible for vaccines within a couple of weeks, as the county moves into a new immunization phase.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said Wednesday, Feb. 10, that the massive Dodger Stadium clinic will be closed for at least two days this week, with the city’s current supply of first-dose Moderna vaccines expected to run out. “This is an enormous hurdle in our race to vaccinate Angelenos,” Garcetti said during his evening briefing on Wednesday. “And unfortunately, it means that we will have to temporarily close Dodger Stadium and the other four non-mobile vaccination sites for two days, on Frid...

The “Academic Tarot”: 22 Major Arcana Cards Representing Life in the Academic Humanities Under COVID-19

“Speculations about the creators of Tarot cards include the Sufis, the Cathars, the Egyptians, Kabbalists, and more,” writes “expert cartomancer” Joshua Hehe. All of these suppositions are wrong, it seems. “The actual historical evidence points to northern Italy sometime in the early part of the 1400s,” when the so-called “major arcana” came into being. “Contrary to what many have claimed, there is absolutely no proof of the Tarot having originated in any other time or place.” A bold claim, yet...

Hear an Ancient Chinese Historian Describe The Roman Empire (and Other Voices of the Past)

Those who see the world from only one narrow point of view get called a number of things–parochial, provincial, and worse–and are encouraged to seek out other perspectives and broaden their view. Not everyone can travel the world, but the world comes to us through immigration and the internet, restaurants and recipes. Most of us, if we are inclined, can learn about and appreciate the cultures, cuisines, and histories of others. But can we see ourselves the way that others see us? This is...

The way we teach science misses something key: Human context

The teaching of science must and can be humanized at all levels, from nonscience courses to technical advanced courses.By teaching science only as a technical endeavor, we deprive students and future scientists of a more inclusive worldview where science is seen as part of our human need to make sense of the world.The challenges we face in the modern world call for an engagement of the sciences and the humanities that starts in the classroom and becomes an essential aspect of the public sphere. ...

The Peace Found in Decluttering and Simplifying Our Lives at (in)courage

The week after my mother passed away, a professional organizer spoke to my homeschool group at an evening moms’ meeting. I had a heavy heart and a busy life, with seven children ranging in age from six months up to eighteen years. I was overwhelmed in every possible way. Although my mother, who had been in poor health for years, was much better off, I hadn’t quite figured out how I was going to make it without her. Other than my husband, she had been my best friend. I never thought about clutter...

How the Food We Eat Affects Our Brain: Learn About the “MIND Diet”

We humans did a number on ourselves, as they say, when we invented agriculture, global trade routes, refrigeration, pasteurization, and so forth. Yes, we made it so that millions of people around the world could have abundant food. We’ve also created food that’s full of empty calories and lacking in essential nutrients. Fortunately, in places where healthy alternatives are plentiful, attitudes toward food have changed, and nutrition has become a paramount concern. “As a society, we are c...

The Animations That Changed Cinema: The Groundbreaking Legacies of Prince Achmed, Akira, The Iron Giant & More

Animation is childish. So believe those who never watch animated films — but also, on another, deeper level, those who hold up animated films as the most complete form of cinema. Whatever our generation, most of us alive today grew up watching cartoons meant in every sense for children, and often artistically flimsy ones at that. But even on such a low-nutrition viewing regimen, we could now and again glimpse the vast possibilities of the form. Or perhaps it was just our imagination — bu...
