Schools that aren't prepared for remote learning are so farked. There will be a wave of death resulting from the in-person return to school, completely unnecessary and avoidable. The silver lining is that this will be the final nail in the Republican Party's coffin.

Meh.  That's just prepping them for the real world, where employers expect 10 years experience with software first released 5 years ago.

Are we sure we're not talking about South Harmon Institute of Technology's website?
 
2020-08-04 2:07:17 PM  
Yeah, I'm still amazed that UVA is still having so much in-person learning.

Nothing against the students, but knowing how some of them are probably "I don't need to wear no mask!", the last thing we need right now is thousands of them roaming through Charlottesville.

South Harmon Institute of Tech's website was actually fully functional.

DarwiOdrade: this will be the final nail in the Republican Party's coffin.


I remember this refrain being uttered constantly in the final years of Dubya's administration.  Folks were wrong then and will be this time.  Hell we're at 150k dead and a cratered economy and Trump still has an approval rating of 41%.

Well, that's quite a cavalier attitude to have.

I'm more pissed about the racist cockbags who held the tiki-torch rally a couple of years ago.

As a Virginia alum, I'm convinced these motherfarkers are responsible for UVa dropping out of U.S. News and World Report's Top 25 list for the first time since farking forever.

Not that that list means jackshiat, but still.

Good news is, we're still the reigning NCAA Div 1 Men's Basketball champs.

So there's that.

Still reigning champs due to the rona putting the kibosh on this year's season obviously.

Memories fade with time. Hard won lessons learned fade from our priorities over time. But we should all make an effort to never forget some of the biggest and most important lessons the Trump admin has illustrated crystal clearly for us all.

- Every accusation from "Conservatives" is always secretly actually a confession. Every. Goddamned. Time.
- "Conservative" politicians will, nearly to the very last person, eagerly assist any aspiring despots when they try and dismantle American rule of law from within - even when aided by our external enemies
- "Conservatives" do not care about anything other than having power over others, and without batting an eyelash will violate any of the principles even us outsiders think they hold, and last but not least (and related to what you just said)....
- A material percentage (something like 30%-40%) of our fellow Americans are either utter garbage and LIKE the death and chaos or are very gullible and stupid - and they vote reliably. If saner folks don't vote in large numbers this year, and every other voting year, our country doesn't have a very bright future ahead at all

That's because a significant percentage of voters in the US do not understand the obligations of citizenship.

I don't like the idea of 1000s of kids having to die to finally show the world what useless pricks the GOP are.  But they are doing it to themselves.
 
2020-08-04 4:34:04 PM  
They don't have to die if they don't show up. Fark the school, let them go bankrupt. Don't go to class, cancel your enrollment for whatever reason a cheap lawyer tells you to tell them on the letter you pay him $100 to write telling the school to FOAD.

Adapt, Evolve and get a good online curriculum going 6 months ago or die. Airlines, Restaurants and colleges and universities are not going to survive covid. tough shiat, no bailouts.

Not just the kids, but their families, too.

Mostly, kids don't die of COVID.  That will be the teachers and administrators and janitorial and cafeteria staff doing most of the sick and dying stuff.  And all the kids' relatives.

I work at a large Australian university. We were planning to return to face to face teaching this semester but there's another outbreak across the border.

we're now getting an average of about 10 cases/day in our state of 7.5 million people and we're considering suspending face to face teaching so we don't contribute to the spread of disease.

I just can't imagine what it'd be like to work and teach in a state where there's an average of 1000 cases/day in a state of 8.5 million people.

yeah, our outbreak is 100 times worse, but off we go into the abattoir.      Parents are really sick of having their kids around all day.
