    CHERRY HILL, New Jersey -- New Jersey officials are considering legislation that would allow school districts to go virtual in case of inclement weather or other emergencies if it becomes law.The bill passed the Senate and is now being considered in the Assembly.Ask most kids, and they'll tell you one of the best winter pastimes is a snow day.Thanks to the pandemic, virtual learning is now an option for most classrooms. But should that mean fewer snow days? Some say yes."They should do virtual instead of missing a day of school, just to not draw the year out longer. It just makes sense," said Steve Martin, a father from Magnolia, N.J.Aspen Thomas' 13-year-old daughter doesn't love virtual school, but Thomas says she likes the idea of having a remote learning day."Will she be devastated if she didn't have a real snow day? Probably. But that's okay," he said.Enter Senate Bill 464: legislation that would allow districts to go virtual for one or more days because of weather or a declared state of emergency.Currently, New Jersey schools are not allowed to...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Deprived of our conference rooms and meeting spaces we’ve adapted over the last year to a world of endless virtual meetings. All that ‘zooming’ is resulting in a new issue – ‘zoom voice fatigue.’ There is nothing virtual about the discomfort and pain and its about more than the number of hours you spend meeting on line. READ MORE: Man Shot, Killed In Anaheim; Gunman At Large Dr. Paul Bryson of the Cleveland Clinic says it is also about the equipment you are using and how you are using your voice. “A lot of times, a home work environment isn’t necessarily set up for acoustics or amplification. It’s sometimes hard to regulate the amount of vocal effort that they take. And also just loudness.” When we meet online, Dr. Bryson says we don’t get that in-person advantage of facial expressions and bodily clues which “can cause repeating oneself talking over others. You may find that you’re speaking louder to make your point, because you’re just not aware of how the sound is being received, you know, by...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- One year ago, ABC7 producer-editor Jericho Saria embarked on an unexpected journey that led him into the personal spaces of Bay Area residents without ever leaving his home. In fact, Saria's digital series COVID-19 Diaries was created in a makeshift workspace located in his garage.COVID-19 DIARIES: Personal stories of Bay Area residents during pandemicSaria vividly remembers the moment he was told to leave the ABC7 News station to begin sheltering in place. "I was in the middle of an edit, trying to get a Localish done, and they told me, 'You got to go home.' Like, whoa, okay, that's serious," said Saria. "I was really concerned there wouldn't be any work after that, but then it was quite the opposite where it's a ton of work."He dove headfirst into the yearlong project COVID-19 Diaries, a limited series uncovering the raw experiences of Bay Area residents living amid a global pandemic. Through Zoom, Saria interviewed COVID-19 survivors, small business owners, students, couples and more, highlighting their respective struggles with glimmers of hope and messages about safety.VIDEO: The...
    Golden Globes viewers may have missed out on celebrities rubbing elbows at this year's semi-virtual awards show, but they did find a surprising new pastime: rating the stars' living rooms.  Co-hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the bicoastal ceremony was largely attended remotely due to the pandemic, with nominees Zooming in from all over the world — inadvertently giving fans a rare glimpse into their homes.  While people had plenty to say about the A-listers' decor, the popular Zoom-inspired Twitter account 'Room Rater' gave marks ranging from zero to ten based on lighting and background quality.  Big win: The popular Twitter account 'Room Rater' gave A-listers marks for their backgrounds at Sunday night's Golden Globes, with Taylor-Joy getting a perfect ten  'Thank God he's talented': Jeff Daniels was given a low four for having poor lighting and 'too many doors' in the room where he set up his camera Claude Taylor, 57, started Room Rater back in April after stay-at-home orders had late night talk shows, news programs, and even benefit concerts being recorded from inside people's homes.    The Golden Globes' first...
    He was court in the act. A lawyer has gone viral in Peru after he stripped off and had sex while still on-camera during a live-streamed court case, according to reports. Héctor Cipriano Paredes Robles had been taking part in a virtual hearing involving a feared local gang, Los Z de Chanchamayo, when he shocked the judge and other viewers Thursday with his X-rated display, according to Todo Noticias. Robles completely stripped off, then started kissing an equally naked woman who soon straddled him, according to video that went viral on Twitter. The outraged judge, John Chachua Torres, immediately called a halt to proceedings — ripping Robles for having “disrespected the dignity” of the court, Todo Noticias said. “This lawyer has lacked the honor and dignity of the profession,” the judge said. The Junín Bar Association later also stressed that it “strongly rejects” the “obscene acts” as it called for a swift investigation into his future in law. Robles — who has yet to publicly address the sex scandal — was replaced in the case, and faces a probe...
    Montgomery County’s Board of Education is continuing with its plan to eventually reopen schools — depending on the spread of the coronavirus — and will take a final vote on its reopening plans in a meeting Dec. 3. In a Monday morning briefing on Zoom, Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Jack Smith said the plans for reopening will also be influenced by the results of parent surveys. Parents are being asked if they want to have their children return for a combination of in-person and virtual instruction, or stick with a virtual instruction-only plan. “We understand this is an incredibly difficult decision to make, and there are a tremendous number of unknowns,” Smith said. Asked about hiring needs to staff schools once they are opened, Smith said, “The ratio of students to staff will be determined by the number of students that come back. One school system I spoke to recently had more staff that wanted to return to a facility than students.” Noting that Montgomery County continues to see a spike in its 14-day case rate average — now...
    By Alaa Elassar, CNN (CNN) — A first-grade teacher at a Michigan elementary school is being hailed as a hero after alerting the school principal that her online student’s grandmother was having a stroke. Julia Koch was teaching her virtual learning class at Edgewood Elementary School on September 22 when she received a call from a grandparent who was having technical difficulties. When Koch spoke to Cynthia Phillips, who was having trouble charging her granddaughter’s school tablet, the teacher noticed something was off in the grandmother’s voice. “It was clear there was something very wrong. Her words were so jumbled, and I couldn’t understand what she was trying to say,” Koch told CNN. “She didn’t sound like herself.” Worried that Phillips might be in danger, Koch immediately called Charlie Lovelady, the principal of the school in Muskegon Heights, who then got a staff member to call 911 while he spoke to Phillips on the phone. “I noticed her speech was impaired, and I asked her if she was alright, and she was stumbling over her words and it was getting...
    A New Jersey high school student says two teachers wanted him to take down a Trump campaign banner that was posted to the wall behind him in his own home - and one booted him from class when he refused. Anthony Ribeiro, 17, said his chemistry teacher asked him to leave a virtual class October 8 after refusing to remove the sign, which read 'Trump 2020 - Keep America Great.'  The teacher, Andrew Gilman, told him to either take down the Trump banner or leave. Ribeiro, a student at Toms River High School North in Toms River, N.J., said he waved goodbye.  The next day, the honor roll student said his English teacher, Leslie Maryon-Larose, requested he take down the banner, saying it could 'offend' other students. That time he complied - but he's uneasy about it.  Toms River High School North student Anthony Ribeiro, 17, said two teachers tried to have him remove the Trump campaign banner during virtual classes. The boy refused and was asked to leave his chemistry class October 8 'Looking back I kind of...
    During most of his press conferences since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Jared Polis has shied away from vigorously bashing President Donald Trump, choosing instead to offer subtler criticism of the current administration's response to the virus and apparent lack of a national strategy to combat it. But his virtual session on October 6 was different. This time around, Polis ripped Trump, who has shrugged off having the virus on Twitter and taken part in media events that have disturbed public health experts, accusing him of irresponsibility that could lead to greater problems in Colorado should too many residents follow his example. "It's challenging to watch how the White House is handling this on a personal level," Polis maintained. "Like a lot of things, the President is taking this in a wrong and divisive direction with regard to his counsel and what he's advising people to do." When Trump encourages individuals not to be afraid of the novel coronavirus, Polis continued, "You've heard me say very similar things. Of course it's not time for fear. But that doesn't...
    A fourth grader in Louisiana was suspended from school for six days after a BB gun was visible in his bedroom during his virtual class session. Hide Ka Mauri Harrison, 9, was taking a test online when his brother walked into the room with the BB gun and placed it on a seat, making it visible to classmates, according to the Root. The teacher filed a behavior report to the school, saying the student “presented a weapon that appeared to be a rifle/shotgun during his Google Meets classroom session” and recommended that Harrison be expelled per school policy. Hide The gun could only be seen for a “split second,” according to the student’s father Nyron Harrison. The student returned to school on Thursday following the suspension, but his father said the incident will potentially have a lasting impact on the child’s future.  “They just went ahead and blew it out of proportion,” Harrison told local station WWL-TV. “This outcome is going to follow him through the rest of his life, and that’s what’s not allowing me to accept their decision.”...
    (CNN)A 9-year-old Louisiana student was suspended after a teacher reported seeing a gun in the boy's bedroom during a virtual class. The attorney representing the child's family said it was a BB gun and the school went too far -- applying its on-campus weapons policy without considering the privacy of the child and his family.Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry announced Friday his office is investigating. New CDC guidelines come down hard in favor of opening schools"I am alarmed by what appears to not only be multiple violations of both the State and Federal Constitutions, but also blatant government overreach by the school system," Landry said in a statement. "For anyone to conclude that a student's home is now school property because of connectivity through video conferencing is absurd ... It is ludicrous for this All-American kid to be punished for taking responsible actions just as it is for his parents to be accused of neglect," Landry added.

    The high school in Georgia that found itself at the center of an uproar after students tweeted photographs showing crowded hallways has now decided to switch to virtual learning, at least temporarily, according to a report by CNN. As Mediaite reported earlier this month, two students at North Paulding High School were suspended for posting the tweets and photos, showing hallways crowded with students changing classes and a low percentage of students wearing masks. The school originally stood by their decision to suspend the students, but later reconsidered after major online backlash and revoked the suspensions. Sunday afternoon, CNN’s Jim Acosta introduced reporter Natasha Chen to explain the announcement about the school’s new policy, calling it “startling news.” Chen said that Paulding County Schools Superintendent Brian Otott had sent a letter to families whose students attended that school, and CNN had obtained a copy of the letter. The letter said that on this coming Monday and Tuesday, the students would be “staying at home doing virtual learning,” to give the district and the school time to “figure out their next plan,”...

A study by Gleeden, the number one digital platform for extramarital affairs. She says a study showed that infidelity – but virtual – increased 160 percent during the pandemic.

According to the study, more than half of unfaithful men go online in the afternoon and at night. The women, when they wake up and both do it from the bathroom, when they take the pet for a walk and even from the bed. “Many people were not aware that they in their relationship were unhappy … COVID has awakened these truths … It has really shown us whether or not we are well with our partner,” says Galleti.
