- NYU Business Professor: Covid Has Begun a Long-Overdue Collapse of the American Education System, and They Deserve Everything They’re Going to Get Two videos of him, below, making the same basic points. He’s on shows hosted by people you will not like (Amanapour, Cooper), but he’s worth listening to. — ACE
Another positive from this whole Covid thingy is that many parents plan on continuing home schooling:
- While the majority of parents are hoping that schools will open in the fall, a great number of parents plan on continuing to homeschool regardless of if schools open or not. A survey conducted recently by Real Clear Opinion Research found that among 2,122 families surveyed, just over 40% of them claimed that they would most likely keep their kids at home and will use distance learning until the pandemic ends, no matter what their local and state governments decide about school closures.

I have had this article thrown in my face too many times… and with a YUGE thanks to ACE OF SPADES for this. Here is the typical Facebook link to the Washington Post article (which is behind a paywall):
To say this article is a fav of Dems and #NeverTrumpers is an understatement. Here is an archived (not behind a pay wall) Washington Post opinion piece by a named source — the author of the piece.
ACE OF SPADES excerpts a portion after this commentary:
He notes that Trump did shrink the NSC — because Obama had bloated it from 100 persons to 400 in just a few years.
But the NSC retained its epidemic personnel — just merged with biodefense and counterprolifereation.
Here is that portion (plus some):
Now ACE switches gears to note who is reTweeting the story:
The rest of ACE’S post is a must read.
This is quickly refuted by the actual budget… the first year is Obama’s… and so, spending on the CDC stayed at or was above O’s.
- The Bear said, “But, I am a Bear.” The Foreman stopped laughing. He was very mad. “Don’t try to fool me,” he said. “You’re not a Bear. You’re a silly man who needs a shave and wears a fur coat. I’m going to take you to the General Manager.” (MEDIUM)
Based on the book by Norton Juster from 1963, this 1965 short film won the Academy Award for Animated Short Film. Created by classic animation artist Chuck Jones, the story was inspired by a the Victorian novella “Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions,” in which the protagonist visits a one-dimensional universe called Lineland, where women are dots and men are lines.
A simple line attempts to woo his true love, a dot, away from the unkempt squiggle she prefers. But he’ll have to learn to bend before she’ll notice him. (IMDB)
