    ARSENAL youngster Ethan Nwaneri - who wasn't even born when the Emirates Stadium was opened - has been included in today's first team squad to face Brentford. The 15-year-old was promoted to first team training this week having made his U21's debut at the beginning of September. 1Nwaneri was promoted to first team training this weekCredit: Getty And the attacking midfielder has already earned a spot in Mikel Arteta's squad with the likes of Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith-Rowe unavailable due to injury. Nwaneri, who was born in March 2007, would become the youngest player ever to make a Premier League appearance if Arteta gives him a run-out. The record is currently held by Liverpool teenager Harvey Elliott who was 16yrs and 30days when he came on for Fulham. Nwaneri is just 15yrs and 180days.

    President Joe Biden is leaning heavily into a new messaging strategy aimed at branding Republicans as "ultra-MAGA" extremists ahead of midterm elections in which the Democrats look to be in serious trouble. The slogan was unveiled last week, while Biden added Tuesday that congressional Republicans want to raise taxes on 75 million families and threaten to sunset Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security — long considered the untouchable third rail of politics. This strategy was mocked by Republicans who see it as a replay of Hillary Clinton's 2016 "deplorables" jibe that largely backfired and that Biden pledged to avoid. WHITE HOUSE PRIORITIES COULD FURTHER STRAIN BIDEN WITH WORKING-CLASS VOTERS But the move was well received in Democratic circles as the party clings to control of Congress. “I was pleased that the president took off the gloves,” said Democratic strategist Michael Stratton. “You can only turn your cheek so many times. The president has done that time and time again, and now it’s time to push back on the falsehoods and the bad, bad policies that...
    “The media-propelled notion that Americans have turned from red meat to fake meat is a case of Park Slope talking to Park Slope — elites hilariously out of touch with the masses,” the Post said. The New York Times recently suggested that Americans were increasingly moving towards meatless diets by citing a 2019 Gallup poll indicating that one-quarter of its respondents ate less meat. The Times said that respondents to the poll primarily did so “for health reasons.” The Post, however, insisted that “Big Apple steakhouses are thriving and adding locations” and that the “ban-the-beef movement is part of a ban-anything-that-tastes-good mindset that holds sway in woker-than-thou circles.” Outside of New York City’s exclusive dining scene, people might simply be eating more beef than faux beef for economic reasons. Buying beef — at $5.99 a pound — to feed a family of four or five is more affordable than buying Impossible Burger meat substitute packages for nearly $8 — before sales tax — per pound. Contrary to the popular cultural narrative, for the time being, at least, the working...
    Some right-wingers have taken to using “groomer” to describe those who are sensitive to the concerns of LGBT-plus people. A spokesperson for Florida Governor Ron Desantis tweeted: Don’t Say Gay “would be more accurately described as an Anti-Grooming Bill.” US Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted: “Anyone who opposes anti-grooming laws like the one in Florida is pro-child predator.” Fox’s Laura Ingraham did a segment called “Doom and Groom.” I agree with progressives. This is a transparent ploy having little to do with protecting children. Some argue, including Lindsay Beyerstein, that the discourse is an attempt to spread QAnon ideology. A key takeaway from John Stoehr’s interview with Gabriel Rosenberg was that “groomer speech” is being used to harden the line between real conservatives (anti-pedophile) and those who are not (pro-pedophile). I’m interested in why the typical conservative – not the thought leader or political elite – might use the term. A more interesting reason the right uses “groomer speech” is it’s the equivalent of “bigot” on the left. The logic appears to be this: if the left...
    BERLIN (AP) — Julian Brandt came on as an early substitute and scored twice in Borussia Dortmund’s 2-0 win at Stuttgart, reducing Bayern Munich’s lead at the top of the Bundesliga to six points on Friday. Brandt was called on by coach Marco Rose to replace Giovanni Reyna in the sixth minute after the American injured his right ankle shortly after kickoff while disputing a ball with Borna Sosa. Brandt scored his first goal in the 12th minute when he was set up by Erling Haaland, who generously squared the ball for his teammate after he was played clear by Jude Bellingham. The Germany midfielder got his second goal in the 71st when he was given space outside the area to fire a bending strike that dipped under the arm of Stuttgart goalkeeper Florian Muller. Sosa hit the crossbar for relegation-threatened Stuttgart with a lob from a tight angle in the final minutes. Haaland, who has 16 league goals this season, was unable to find the net for a fifth straight league game. Bayern will host Augsburg on Saturday in...
    By Carolyn Thompson | Associated Press With teacher absences mounting and substitutes in short supply, parents may be wondering: Who’s teaching the kids? The answer around the U.S. could be a local police officer, National Guard soldier, state budget analyst, parent or recent high school graduate — nearly anyone willing to help keep schools’ doors open through the omicron-driven staffing crunch. States have been loosening teaching requirements to give schools more flexibility on hiring as coronavirus exposures, illness and quarantines add to strains on schools that also have been tapping librarians, custodians and support staff to help cover classrooms during the pandemic. Brian McKinney, a parent with students in second and 10th grade in Hays County, Texas, spent part of this week as a substitute, helping sixth graders through a social studies assignment that had them writing essays about the Soviet Union. A former teacher, he decided he could help as he waited out a cold snap that has slowed business at the World War II-themed miniature golf course he and his wife now own. “There was no down...
    A Minnesota superintendent is filling in the blanks – in the classroom, in the front office, and even in the cafeteria -- as worker shortages continue to plague America’s schools. Duluth Schools Superintendent John Magas told "Fox & Friends" Thursday that the variety of jobs he’s covered this school year include teaching, administrative office work, and lunch supervision. But he stressed that he’s not alone in picking up the slack. "This is a huge lift for everybody; it’s certainly not just me," he said. "So many other people are stepping up in so many different ways – teachers, paraprofessionals, other administrators. DOCTORS ARGUE IN WASHINGTON POST TO MAKE MASKS OPTIONAL IN SCHOOLS: ‘GIVE THEM THEIR CHILDHOOD BACK’ As tens of thousands of workers in education have left the field in recent months, Magas explained that the shortage in schools, which has been a concern for "many years," was only compounded by the pandemic.

    (Reuters)Egypt booked a quarterfinal place at the Africa Cup of Nations with a 5-4 shootout victory over Ivory Coast on Wednesday as substitute goalkeeper Mohamed Abo Gabal saved Eric Bailly's tame penalty and Mohamed Salah stroked home the decisive spotkick.The match finished 0-0 after extra time before Abo Gabal, who had replaced the injured Mohamed El Shennawy, pushed a casual effort from Ivorian defender Bailly onto the crossbar and Salah struck the winning penalty from his trademark long run-up.Seven-time winners Egypt will now face north African rivals Morocco in an enticing quarterfinal at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo in Yaounde on Sunday.It was a lively match at the Japoma Stadium in Douala in which both sides created enough chances to win the game, but also at times lacked quality in the attacking third at either end in another largely quiet outing for Egypt captain Salah.Egypt are seeking their first continental title since 2010 having surprisingly fallen at the last-16 stage on home soil in 2019.Read MoreREAD: Report into deadly stadium crush will focus on who closed gate that led to loss...
    New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) announced Wednesday she will be asking National Guard members and state employees to become certified to fill in as substitute teachers as teacher staffing shortages continue to skyrocket. Along with “encouraging” National Guard members and state employees to become licensed substitute teachers, the governor’s “Supporting Teachers and Families” (STAF) initiative will allow state workers to use administrative leave to temporarily fill the vacancies. According to the Albuquerque Journal, about 50 National Guard members will participate initially, with the plan to add another 50. Licensing fees will be waved for those who wish to participate. The teachers’ unions are also apparently on board with the new plan. School staffing shortages have dramatically increased across the country due in part to the coronavirus pandemic. Low teacher pay is another factor contributing to the fact that the Bureau of Labor Statistics recently reported that there are “575,000 fewer state and local education employees, and 65,000 employees left the industry between September and October.” New Mexico will be the first state in the country to address the...
    Nearly 9 million people called out sick with COVID-19 in the early part of January, a staggering number and a blow to businesses already grappling with a labor shortage.  The Census Bureau's Household Pulse Survey released Wednesday showed 8.8 million people reported not being at work because of coronavirus-related reasons between December 29 and January 10.  That was well up from the 3 million who called out sick from December 1 to December 13, before the Omicron wave struck. It wasn't clear from the survey how many of the workers were ill with symptoms, or isolating due to close contacts or positive tests. Meanwhile, layoffs increased last week as Omicron battered businesses and delayed economic recovery, with new jobless claims increasing 55,000 to 286,000, the highest level since mid-July.  Layoffs increased last week as Omicron battered businesses and delayed economic recovery, with new jobless claims increasing 55,000 to 286,000 People walk past a closed business shop in Miami, Florida on January 12, 2022 RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Jen Psaki refuses to speculate WHEN the US...

    DENVER (CBS4)– Denver Public Schools Superintendent Alex Marrero is taking the staffing shortage in his school district seriously. In fact, he recently stepped back into the classroom to take on a substitute teaching role.

    PARIS (AP) — Striker Wesley Said came off the bench to score a late winner as Lens beat Rennes 1-0 in the French league on Saturday. Said had been on for less than 20 minutes when he neatly turned in a cross from right back Jonathan Clauss in the 88th minute. The win moved northern side Lens up to sixth place while Britanny-based Rennes was fourth before Sunday’s games. Both clubs lost their last two league games and it was a cautious first half, where Lens had more possession but failed to create clear chances. Saturday’s other game between defending champion Lille and Lorient was postponed after a dozen Lorient players tested positive for COVID-19. NO MESSI Runaway league leader Paris Saint-Germain will be without Lionel Messi and several other players who had the coronavirus for Sunday’s trip to Lyon. Messi returned to individual training soon after testing negative for the virus on Thursday. But winger Angel Di Maria, midfielder Julian Draxler, central defender Danilo Pereira, left back Layvin Kurzawa and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma remain in isolation....
    LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan public schools can use non-teaching staff as substitute teachers the rest of the academic year under a law designed to address a shortage during the coronavirus pandemic. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced Monday that she signed the bill last week, calling it a “temporary stopgap” in a letter to lawmakers. It lets secretaries, paraprofessionals and other school employees without a teaching certificate — such as library aides, bus drivers, cooks and office workers — work as subs as long as they have a high school diploma or equivalency certificate.

    DORTMUND, Germany (AP) — Second-half substitute Erling Haaland scored twice as Borussia Dortmund signed out of the Champions League with a 5-0 rout of Turkish team Beşiktaş in their final group game on Tuesday. Haaland needed only five minutes to score after coming on, meeting Nico Schulz’s cross with a thumping header past Ersin Destanoğlu in the 68th minute, and then followed up with another header to Mahmoud Dahoud’s corner to complete the scoring in the 81st. It brought the 21-year-old Norwegian’s overall Champions League tally to 23 goals in 19 appearances. Marco Reus also scored twice, and Donyell Malen got the other, as Dortmund temporarily put aside its Bundesliga frustrations to ensure Beşiktaş remained the only team without a single point in the competition. Dortmund was already assured of finishing third for a Europa League playoff against one of the eight group runners-up in that competition. The winners of the two-legged playoffs in February will go on to play in the Europa League knockout stage. Ajax and Sporting Lisbon already had secured the top...
    GREENSBURG, Pa. (KDKA) — America’s shopping malls took a real hit during the pandemic, and holiday sales are not enough to save some of them. There is one thing that seems to be helping, and the Westmoreland Mall is a good example. READ MORE: Officials Remind Parents To Keep Their Guns Secured To Avoid TragedyAmerica has over 1,100 enclosed shopping malls, but one analysis found that some 750 anchor tenants at many malls are closed and empty right now. Replacing those tenants is not easy. Shopping malls depend on foot traffic — getting people into the doors to spend money on everything from clothes to goods to food to entertainment. When a mall loses its anchor tenants, smaller shops often fail, too. But some malls that seemed to be in decline have made a comeback with something not usually identified at a mall — casinos. The Westmoreland Mall, owned by CBL Properties, is a good example where the decision of Live! Casino Pittsburgh to locate there a year ago has brought new life back to the mall. “We’re an anchor...
    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/AP) — GOP leaders fighting President Joe Biden’s COVID vaccine mandates are embracing natural immunity as substitute. They contend that people who have recovered from the virus have enough immunity and antibodies to not need COVID-19 vaccines, and the concept has been invoked by Republicans as a sort of stand-in for vaccines.

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Republicans fighting President Joe Biden’s coronavirus vaccine mandates are wielding a new weapon against the White House rules: natural immunity.

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A big concern for school districts across the Bay Area right now is the teacher shortage, including finding substitute teachers.

    WOLVERHAMPTON, England (AP) — Harry Kane was selected as a substitute for Tottenham’s Premier League match at Wolverhampton on Sunday, paving the way for his first appearance of the season amid intrigue about his potential move to Manchester City. The England captain returned late to preseason and was not deemed fit enough to even be on the bench for Tottenham’s 1-0 win over City last weekend in the opening round of the league. He didn’t travel with the Tottenham squad to Portugal for the 1-0 loss to Pacos de Ferreira in the Europa Conference League on Thursday. Kane is reported to have told Tottenham at the start of the offseason that he wanted to leave and has been widely linked with a move to City. City manager Pep Guardiola has said he is “very interested” in signing Kane, but that Tottenham must be willing to negotiate for a deal to be made.

    08/12/2021 at 11:51 CEST And now what will happen to Mbappé? After the arrival of Leo Messi, the French star is the only unknown in the Parisian club. Not for this season, where it seems that he will stay to make a dream triplet with the Argentine and Neymar, but for the next course. The Frenchman is still stubborn about not renewing his link with PSG beyond June 2022 and the club seems to get used to the idea that retaining Mbappé is going to be impossible. Thus, according to ‘AS’, in the Parisian leadership they already consider that the future of the young French attacker passes through Real Madrid, where he would arrive for free in July 2022. But the information is not there. Always according to the aforementioned media, PSG is not going to settle for signing a substitute who complements Neymar and Messi, but would do everything possible to sign Cristiano Ronaldo and make a new triplet of galacticos up. The dream of joining Messi and Cristiano in the same...
    U.S. regulators took action Wednesday that should make it easier to get a cheaper near-copy of a brand-name insulin at the drugstore. Doctors must now prescribe what's called a biosimilar drug, or OK its use as a substitution for a more expensive brand-name insulin. The Food and Drug Administration has given its approval to Semglee, the first biosimilar cleared as a substitute for Lantus, a widely used fast-acting insulin. Biosimilar drugs are not the same as generic drugs. Unlike generic drugs, which share the same chemical composition as their pricier brand-name counterparts, biosimilar drugs are "highly similar" duplications. The FDA agreed that Viatris Inc.'s Semglee was interchangeable with Lantus.OK to automatically swapWednesday's move will allow pharmacists to automatically substitute the cheaper version when filling prescriptions, just as they do with generic pills for other kinds of drugs. It's the FDA's first approval of an "interchangeable" biosimilar, a near-copy of an injected biologic medicine that's manufactured inside living cells. It could save diabetics and health plans millions of dollars annually and encourage other drugmakers to create more biosimilar medicines. Health...
    President Joe Biden called communism a 'failed system' on Thursday after he faced criticism from conservatives and some Florida Democrats for not showing strong enough support for the protesters in Cuba. 'Communism is a failed system, universally fail system. And I don't see socialism as a very useful substitute,' Biden said at the White House during a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The White House had given a more measured response to the protests that took place over food shortages and power outages on the island nation, refusing to call out the 'communist' government but denounced the 'authoritative regime' instead.  Biden said there were a 'number of things' his administration could to help the Cuban people but he expressed concern the communist-led government would take control of any aid sent there, such as remittances or COVID vaccines.   He also acknowledged his administration is doing something about the lack of internet access in Cuba. Florida's Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis wrote Biden on Wednesday, asking him to do something about the problem.   'We're considering whether we had the technological ability...

    A former San Francisco substitute teacher has pleaded guilty to three federal sex tourism charges after admitting that he repeatedly traveled to Vietnam to engage in 'illicit sexual conduct' with boys as young as 11. Paul Bodner, 65, entered the guilty pleas on Tuesday in US District Court for the Northern District of California. He faces up to 30 years in prison. Bodner, who until recently was employed as a substitute teacher in the San Francisco Unified School District, was indicted in January of last year stemming from his foreign travels from July 2015 through August 2016. According to the indictment, Bodner traveled in March and July 2016 to Vietnam, where he met local boys aged 11 or 12, and engaged in sex acts with them at a hotel in Ho Chi Minh City.

    New York (CNN)The Justice Department argued in a brief filed Monday that it should be permitted to substitute itself for former President Donald Trump as defendant in a defamation lawsuit brought by a longtime magazine columnist, E. Jean Carroll, who accused him of rape, continuing the argument it had initiated under the previous administration even as the White House has changed hands."Then-President Trump's response to Ms. Carroll's serious allegations of sexual assault included statements that questioned her credibility in terms that were crude and disrespectful," Justice Department lawyers wrote in a brief to the 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals. "But this case does not concern whether Mr. Trump's response was appropriate. Nor does it turn on the truthfulness of Ms. Carroll's allegations."Rather, the lawyers wrote, because they believe Trump was an employee of the government and that he acted "within the scope of employment," the department, rather than Trump personally, should serve as defendant in the case."Speaking to the public and the press on matters of public concern is undoubtedly part of an elected official's job," they wrote.

    A Kansas state representative who was working as a substitute teacher has been arrested after allegedly kneeing a student in the crotch and threatening to take the 'wrath of God' out on students in class.  Rep. Mark Samsel, 36, was charged with misdemeanor battery after students filmed him talking about sex, suicide, masturbation and the Bible, before allegedly attacking one of the class.  Samsel was working as a substitute teacher at Wellsville school district’s secondary school on Wednesday when he went on a religious rant. In a video captured by students and shared with The Kansas City Star by their parents, Samsel is heard telling the class about a student who tried to kill himself three times because 'he has two parents and they're both females'.  'He's a foster kid. His alternatives in life were having no parents or foster care parents who are gay,' Samsel tells students. 'How do you think I'm going to feel if he commits suicide? Awful.'  Kansas lawmaker Mark Samsel, left, 36, was filmed discussing sex, masturbation and suicide in a bizarre religious rant while...

    Schools across the United States are struggling with massive teacher shortages fueled by the coronavirus pandemic as students head back to the classrooms for the first time in a year. Teacher retirements, teacher leave of absences and school districts’ need for substitute teachers have all skyrocketed during the pandemic, while the number of available substitute teachers has declined, Axios reported. In Michigan, teacher retirements rose by 44% since August of 2020, according to the Detroit-based outlet Chalkbeat. Meanwhile, 18,629 Michigan public school teachers are eligible to retire at any point and collect a full pension, and an additional 11,975 are close to being able to retire early because they have between 20 and 25 years of service. (RELATED: Some School Districts Are Teaching In-Person. One Will Find ‘Every Excuse We Can To Stay Open’) Dwight Pierson, a high school teacher in St. John’s, Michigan, told the outlet that coronavirus “is a game-changer” and that he expects there to be “record retirements.” He described trying to teach some of his students via virtual learning and others in the classroom at the...
    The search for long-term substitute teachers is a continual process in most school systems, but area school districts say the pandemic and the return to in-person classroom instruction has intensified their efforts. Lena Cohen, supervisor of the Substitute Office at Fairfax County Public Schools told WTOP: “We’re definitely seeing a greater need for substitutes to fill these long-term opportunities.” In Virginia, a substitute falls into the long-term category if they teach for at least 11 days, but fewer than 90 days. That changed as a result of the coronavirus, Cohen said. “Due to the pandemic, the Virginia Department of Education has waived the 90-day rule.” Cohen said the Fairfax County School system is looking for both teachers and instructional assistants on a long-term basis. Currently, the school system needs an average of 400 substitutes a day “and that’s inclusive of long-term opportunities,” said Cohen. Substitutes don’t have to hold state certifications in Maryland or Virginia. In the Fairfax County School system, Cohen said, “There are a number of ways you can be eligible” to work as a classroom teacher in...
    GENEVA (AP) — Russia’s wish to use a patriotic Soviet-era folk song as a replacement anthem for the Tokyo Olympics was rejected by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on Friday in further fallout from a years-long doping scandal. The court said its panel of three judges was asked to clarify what music it would allow within the two-year ban on Russia’s team name, flag and national anthem from Olympics and world championships imposed in December. Russian officials proposed the “Katyusha” song, which is strongly identified with the fight against Nazi Germany in World War II. “The CAS panel considers that ‘any anthem linked to Russia’ extends to any song associated with, or with links to, Russia, which would include Katyusha,” the court said in a statement to The Associated Press. It is unclear which piece of music Russian Olympic officials could propose in consultation with the International Olympic Committee. Russia will compete in Tokyo and next year’s Winter Olympics in Beijing as “ROC,” an acronym for the Russian Olympic Committee. The CAS judges’ ruling in December...

    Ghislaine Maxwell blames her arrest on ex-boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein’s death, claiming US prosecutors are targeting her as a substitute, newly unsealed court papers reveal. She is being prosecuted on sex abuse charges that could put her in prison for life. Her lawyers challenged the case brought against their client last July on multiple grounds in papers filed last week and unsealed Thursday with some redactions. 'One does not need to engage in complex analysis to understand what has happened here,' her lawyers wrote in the Manhattan federal court documents. 'The government has sought to substitute our client for Jeffrey Epstein, even if it means stretching - and ultimately exceeding - the bounds of the law.' The 59-year-old British socialite (pictured in a court sketch last year) was arrested last July on child sex trafficking charges and has remained jailed on grounds she might flee They added: 'The government's sudden zeal to prosecute Ms. Maxwell for alleged conduct with Epstein in the 1990s - conduct for which the government never even charged Epstein - follows a history that is both highly unusual...
    SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. – The increasing need for more substitute teachers to fill in for full-time teachers calling out sick, resigning or even protesting over in-school learning as coronavirus cases continue to rise across the country has pushed some school districts to temporarily relax qualification requirements. Such measures have been seen in Iowa and Missouri while in Rhode Island, a new training program has been launched to get more substitutes into classrooms. In Michigan, billboards have gone up trying to attract new hires, and some subs in Connecticut might not need a bachelor’s degree at all. CLICK HERE FOR FULL CORONAVIRUS COVERAGE According to a recent survey by the Arizona School Personnel Administrators Association (ASPAA) 27% of teacher vacancies across the state remain unfilled while about 47% of the vacancies are filled by teachers who do not meet the state’s standard certification requirements.

    By HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH and CASEY SMITH, Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — As the coronavirus sidelines huge numbers of educators, school districts around the country are aggressively recruiting substitute teachers, offering bonuses and waiving certification requirements in order to keep classrooms open. Coming to the rescue in many cases are college students who are themselves learning online or home for extended winter breaks. In Indiana, the 4,400-student Greenfield-Central school district about 20 miles (32 kilometers) east of Indianapolis made a plea for help as its substitute pool shrank. “I said, ’If you’ve got a student who’s in college, maybe they’d like to work even a two-month thing for us - which would be a stopgap, no doubt - but it will help us a whole, whole bunch,” said Scott Kern, the Greenfield-Central Community School Corporation director of human resources. Over a dozen college students answered the call including his own daughter, 19-year-old Grace Kern, who is studying medical imaging technology at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis. She has been working in elementary school classrooms, helping students as teachers offer instruction remotely via...

    In the Pumas of the University they have shouted in the sky for the injury of Alfredo Talavera. No one doubts it, the veteran goalkeeper has been the soul of the Auriazules, his leadership and his saves have a lot to do with the team being second in the competition table. But … Can you really trust the substitute Julio González? The 29-year-old goalkeeper has gone off the bat for four games in this tournament, due to suspensions or injuries from Talavera; in those encounters he received six goals, and Pumas lost one game, drew two and won one. Gone are the days when Alfredo Saldívar, today a substitute at Toluca, was the lord and master in the goal of the university students and the substitutes did not generate competition for him; Today Alfredo Talavera is the undisputed holder, but González is not a bearer check. Julio José González Vela Alvizu grew up in the basic forces of Santos Laguna, although when he made the leap to the first team he had to live under...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – “Substitute teachers wanted.” That’s the message from some districts around the state as quarantines impact staffing levels. One of those districts is St. Michael-Albertville. Their superintendent Ann-Marie Foucault put a plea on Facebook hoping to find enough subs to keep her students in class. “I don’t want the reason we have to change our learning model to be dictated by our staffing levels,” Foucault said. As the lowest funded district is the state, she says dollars are tight. In anticipation of fluctuation of staffing levels due to COVID-19, they hired 20 long-term subs. It wasn’t enough. Thursday, 45 teachers were out, with 18 unfilled absences. “We had all hands on decks. So we had principals subbing,” Foucault said. She says students learn best while in the classroom and that’s where she wants them to stay. But they need help and are asking for substitute teachers to step in or for people with a four-year degree to apply for a short call license to become a sub. “There’s just not a lot of teachers out there that want...
    The COVID-19 friendly City of the Dead Drive-In Haunted House, produced by 13th Floor Entertainment Group, is marketed as scary, but it's a poor substitute for a haunted house — funny at best, but mostly boring. Someone between the ages of eight and twelve might find something to enjoy here, but the scariest thing I saw was the price tag: Tickets are $39.99 a car, which admits a driver and a passenger. Additional passengers can be added for $9.99. For VIP tickets, a spot right in the front, is $59.99 per car. Those are first-rate haunted house prices, but this is no haunted house.

    A substitute teacher shortage is looming in some school districts already grappling with the complicated logistics of returning to the classroom during the coronavirus pandemic. A number of schools throughout the Northeast are already facing challenges with classroom coverage weeks into the new school year. In Trumbull, Conn., Hillcrest Middle School has reportedly closed due to staffing issues after a positive COVID-19 case resulted in staffers having to quarantine with not enough substitutes to replace them, the Hartford Courant reported Monday. The school is shifting to virtual learning as it stays closed until October, and the district’s superintendent wrote in a letter to parents that more than 10 classrooms would have bene left unsurprised had the school tried to stay open, according to the Courant. In Rhode Island, where there are nearly 2,000 teachers in Providence, the state’s largest school district, 122 teacher absences were reported during the first week of school, as compared with 108 on the first day of last year, according to a report from WPRI.com. What’s more, there were 134 teacher absences on Tuesday of...
    CORAL SPRINGS (CBSMiami) – With indoor venues opening in South Florida, churches are getting ready to open their doors too. At Church By The Glades, Pastor David Hughes is taking extra precautions as he personally experienced getting infected with COVID-19. Through church services online, Pastor Hughes said they were able to reach people from all over the world. In addition to online sermons, they offered the opportunity to talk to pastors one-on-one via live chat and pastors would pray with people through the computer. “Our doors were closed, but our church was still open,” said Pastor Hughes. “At the same time, it’s no substitute for meeting together.” Pastor Hughes said even through persecution or famine, churches have always been together. “It’s a very weird time for us,” Pastor Hughes said. Pastor Hughes even got sick and had to quarantine at home for 16 days. He showed symptoms like headache, cough, fever, and chills. “It’s not fun. I was not hospitalized, very fortunate there,” he said. After recovering from COVID-19 and the church being closed for about 26 weeks, Pastor...
