"Many schools have been held back by CDC standards saying that they only permit in-person classrooms if students sit no closer than six feet apart."

"This requirement makes full-time schooling impossible, because schools simply don’t have enough room to teach every student while spacing them so far apart. But that requirement, chosen hastily last year, turns out to be useless. The most important scientific advance is the recent conclusion that the guideline that students must maintain six feet of distance in schools has no value.

From the Groundlings up: Pandemic-era family improv teaches active listening, learning from mistakes

Lauren Burns, an improvisation teacher at The Groundlings Theater & School in Hollywood, is launching an online improv for parents on Sunday to help them learn playful techniques to reduce the tension their children might be feeling and to create new bonds with them...

LA County leaders decry Atlanta shootings, vow unity against attacks on Asian-Americans

Los Angeles County civil rights leaders joined elected leaders on Wednesday, March 17, to condemn violence against Asian Americans, decrying three shootings in Atlanta that left eight people dead — six of them Asian women.   “We don’t know what the motivation of the killer was.

The Bayeux Tapestry Gets Digitized: View the Medieval Tapestry in High Resolution, Down to the Individual Thread

The Bayeux Tapestry, one of the most famous artifacts of its kind, isn’t actually a tapestry. Technically, because the images it bears are embroidered onto the cloth rather than woven into it, we should call it the Bayeux Embroidery. To quibble over a matter like this rather misses the point — but then, so does taking too literally the story it tells in colored yarn over its 224-foot length. Commissioned, historians believe, as an apologia for the Norman conquest of England in 1066, this elabor...

Archeologists Reconstruct the Faces of 10-Century Medieval Dukes, Using DNA Analysis & 3-D Models of Skulls

Maybe you’ve sung the Christmas carol “Good King Wenceslas” and wondered who this good king was. The carol wasn’t written until the 19th century, but “Wenceslas was a real person,” writes NPR’s Tom Manoff, the patron saint of the Czechs and “the Duke of Bohemia, a 10th-century Christian prince in a land where many practiced a more ancient religion. In one version of his legend, Wenceslas was murdered in a plot by his brother,” Boleslav, “under the sway of their so-called pagan mother,” D...
