I wonder what the on-line attendance rates are for those very students...

I bet it's pretty bad.

Student behavior referrals plummet during distance learning at JCPS

Overall learning has plummeted as well, but we won't admit that.

Yup. My grand niece, who has always loved school, started falling way behind on her reading level (she's in 2nd grade) because of remote learning and the teachers just not having time to help students get over any remote learning humps. Her dad is a good guy, but just not a good home schooler. I gave him four grand to hire a private tutor and she has now caught back up, but not every kid gets that kind of help.

I can only imagine how badly this "graduation year" cadre of students is going to fall behind by the time they all graduate. I think the younger students, in their formative years, are going to be especially hard hit.

My daughter has been in school all but part of the week before thanksgiving. Well the the also had four snow days. So far no problems and I'm not seeing any coming.

My county numbers as of today.

Pop: 16,172
Positive: 1345
Active: 11
Deaths: 29
Negative: 11,890

I only know about a few of the deaths but the ones I know were over 80. The only positive people I know that had any problems are fat.

I sure don't want to get it but that's not looking very deadly for a county that never shut down and has an older population.

Two weeks to flatten the curve. We never saw a curve. We had a little bump just before thanksgiving that was it.
Sometimes we carry more weight then we owe.
And sometimes goes on and on and on.

Thanks. My niece, who died of a brain tumor a few years ago, was always like a daughter to me, so I feel it's my duty to take care of my grand niece. I feel bad though, for all the kids that don't have someone to help them, financially or otherwise, get through this remote learning charlie foxtrot.

Illegal immigration detention facilities opened to 100% (or more) capacity by order of the president. Schools are still closed. TX and MS are "Neanderthals" per the president for relaxing covid restrictions.

Sturm und Drang, strife and distress, hate and discontent, are all at the roots of Communism.

And it doesn't matter where the hate and discontent is directed or whether it is rational or not.  It's like successive advertising "impacts." No matter how many times you ignore a commercial, for instance, each presentation is an "impact," even if you can barely hear it from the next room.

Thus it is with Leftist complaints.  Every complaint no matter how irrational, no matter where it is directed, is another.... impact.

Quote
ZURICH—Austrian authorities have suspended inoculations with a batch of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine as a precaution while investigating the death of one person and the illness of another after the shots, a health agency said on Sunday.

“The Federal Office for Safety in Health Care (BASG) has received two reports in a temporal connection with a vaccination from the same batch of the AstraZeneca vaccine in the district clinic of Zwettl” in Lower Austria province, it said.

One 49-year-old woman died as a result of severe coagulation disorders, while a 35-year-old woman developed a pulmonary embolism and is recovering, it said. A pulmonary embolism is an acute lung disease caused by a dislodged blood clot.

“Currently there is no evidence of a causal relationship with the vaccination,” BASG said.

Interesting article on "waves" of long haul symptoms. Maybe  I can now point my finger at covid for the old guy mind fog I seem to be getting more and more of.  :laugh:

I still don't have my smell back. I've been starting to get something like "ghost" smells - sorta kinda thinking I smell something, but I can't be sure.

Anyway, the CCP made a pretty good first run at a bioweapon release.  =)

There are many people who think it's all a hoax.

The hoax isn't the virus. The hoax is treating something that's 3 times as deadly as the flu as the andromeda strain.

Have the actions of the past year (the blatant lying, manipulation, draconian measures, and mask insanity) including destroying thousands of people's livelihoods been appropriate to something this benign?

Yes, people have died. Yes, it's a serious disease. But it should never have disrupted the world this much. Our entire world is insane. 
I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

I have two nieces in college (or taking college classes remotely).  I found out one was having trouble with math and got a tutor to help.  They don't have any office hours or time with a teaching assistant.  I don't think she even has an actual textbook.  She ended up getting a tutor to get her through that spot and is doing well again.  My other niece was already using tutors to assist.

The hoax isn't the virus. The hoax is treating something that's 3 times as deadly as the flu for those over 70, about as deadly for those 50-70, and far less deadly for those under about 50 as the andromeda strain.

Have the actions of the past year (the blatant lying, manipulation, draconian measures, and mask insanity) including destroying thousands of people's livelihoods been appropriate to something this benign?

Yes, people have died. Yes, it's a serious disease. But it should never have disrupted the world this much. Our entire world is insane.

More bad news for the AstraZeneca vaccine (and users thereof):

https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/14/europe/ireland-stops-astrazeneca-rollout-intl/index.html

Quote
Health authorities in Austria were the first to sound the alarm on the potential dangers of the vaccine, suspending on Tuesday one batch of doses.

Italy on Friday banned the use of vaccines from a specific batch of AstraZeneca doses following the death of a serviceman in Sicily, who had died of cardiac arrest one day after receiving his first dose of the vaccine.

Denmark however on Thursday became the first European country to temporarily suspend the entire rollout of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The European Union's medicines regulator, the EMA, is currently investigating whether the shot could be linked to a number of reports of blood clots.

A tale of two states: California and Florida have nearly identical COVID infection rates despite taking very different approaches to the pandemic:

https://www.theepochtimes.com/virus-tolls-similar-despite-governors-contrasting-actions_3732095.html

Quote
Nearly a year after California Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered the nation’s first statewide shut down because of the coronavirus, masks remain mandated, indoor dining and other activities are significantly limited, and Disneyland remains closed.

By contrast, Florida has no statewide restrictions. Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has prohibited municipalities from fining people who refuse to wear masks. And Disney World has been open since July.

Despite their differing approaches, California and Florida have experienced almost identical outcomes in COVID-19 case rates.

How have two states that took such divergent tacks arrived at similar points?

...

California and Florida both have a COVID-19 case rate of around 8,900 per 100,000 residents since the pandemic began, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And both rank in the middle among states for COVID-19 death rates—Florida was 27th as of Friday; California was 28th.

I wonder if we couldn't say CA is actually worse, if you factor in the age demographics. FL has a lot of at-risk elderly.
