Apologies for what may come off as whinging. I am tired and even more out of sorts than usual (and you know by now that a sunny disposition is not my trademark). So you are again getting short rations on original posts.
I’ve had a low-grade bug for 2+ weeks, definitely not Covid but enough to make me even more fatigued than normal, plus frustration about my worsening orthopedic issues (and now some pain, and yours truly has exceedingly high pain tolerance, so this isn’t something I’m used to) and a lack of any good treatment options, plus more hassles with my mother (the latest being one of our four aides has recently started having trouble transferring my mother in and out of her wheelchair; I don’t like the idea of bringing in a new aide, and I have very limited options that way. The alternative would be hiring an occupational therapist to nominally train my mother but actually train the aide. That sounds great save for finding said occupational therapist. I know pretty much no one in the community. The agency who employs the aide had no leads and said to ask my mother’s MD. His past physical therapist referral was to a nursing agency that put my mother through such an exhausting “assessment” drill that she refused additional visits. I guarantee his office will again suggest that agency).
Pew survey finds low-income, minority respondents overwhelmingly support keeping schools closed until teachers vaccinated. Upper-income, white, and Republican respondents more likely to want schools reopened as soon as possible. https://t.co/ItYTtznm73pic.twitter.com/I77J0ivt0g
Bank of England to ‘resist firmly’ EU raid on London, warns governor Guardian (Kevin W). Um, that horse left the barn and is in the next county. France and the ECB tried forcing Euro derivatives trading to the continent because euro many years back. The ECJ ruled they couldn’t do that because it amounted to discriminating against an EU member. With the UK outside the EU, there’s no impediment to the EU insisting Euro clearing take place in the EU…the same way dollar clearing takes place in the US (take note of all those foreign banks with New York branches for that reason).
This mindset says there’s no need to engage with “bad” ideas directly, because “you allow them to steal your attention from better treatments of an issue.” So no need to actually read “bad” books. Just read the summaries by “better” sources. https://t.co/gH2eJ1c1ui
Nonsense! Job numbers are determined by public & private investment, not by undergraduate degree choice. A college education is not vocational training; it’s meant to transform students into well-rounded critical thinkers, communicators & community membershttps://t.co/ij9xLfZ3D0
