Transitioning to hybrid model, North Olmsted City Schools forfeits playoff football game due to positive COVID-19 test

NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio — After a player tested positive for COVID-19, North Olmsted City Schools forfeited its playoff game against Avon scheduled for Friday night (Oct. 16).

Joining the player in a 14-day quarantine will be nine additional students and two staff members who were exposed.

“Everyone is doing fine, and we look forward to their return to school as soon as possible,” North Olmsted City Schools Superintendent Michael E. Zalar said. “We’re very disappointed to have to cancel our game.

“The kids worked hard and won their first playoff game last week. Nobody wants to see their season end this way.”

The Eagles team finished the abbreviated season like it started with having to withdraw from their season opener in August after a player tested positive.

“It’s unfortunate for our student athletes,” Zalar said. “Our players and coaches have done a great job of following our safety protocols, but

Lucid Air packs Tesla Model S-beating 406-mile range and 480 hp for $69,900

8

You could have one of these in your driveway for slightly less than a base model Tesla Model S, with some caveats, of course.


Lucid Motors

Lucid has been making waves with the introduction of the production version of its Air electric sedan. Not only has the company been keeping Tesla in its sights from a technological standpoint, handily exceeding the Model S’ already stellar range, and offering genuinely staggering performance figures while doing it.

Unfortunately, the performance numbers aren’t the only thing that people found staggering. The price for the top-tier Dream edition clocks in at $169,000, for example, but it turns out that Lucid had something else up its sleeve. See, according to Lucid’s announcement on Wednesday, it will also offer a much more affordable Air model that still offers big range estimates.

Hong Kong takes back seat as China’s Xi promotes neighbor as future ‘model city’

China’s President Xi Jinping praised the tech-hub city of Shenzhen in a landmark speech on Wednesday, leaving some puzzling over the future of nearby Hong Kong, as China’s traditional global foothold.

Xi said Shenzhen, often dubbed China’s Silicon Valley and home to tech giants Huawei and Tencent, was making “historic leaps” and “achieving miracles.”

He also announced that the area would be given more leeway to pursue opening-up reforms and become a “model city for a strong socialist country.”

Once a small fishing village adjacent to Hong Kong, Shenzhen is now home to about 13 million and was transformed in 1980 by veteran Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, after he designated it a “Special Economic Zone,” carving out capitalist privileges in the staunchly communist country.

Retracing Deng’s footprints 40 years later during his own southern tour this week, Xi announced Shenzhen would again become a testing ground for foreign investment and

Building A Nearshore Tech Team Through The BOT Model

Co-founder and CMO at CodersLink, a technology solutions agency helping companies find and build elite IT nearshore teams in LATAM.

Nearshore tech teams are often regarded as one of the ways large companies bolster their IT department productivity. In reality, companies from all sizes are able to tap into the advantages of this type of outsourcing. If you’re unclear about the different types of outsourcing, you can familiarize yourself with its most common variations. 

The implications of building a nearshore team stop a lot of C-levels, managers or founders in their tracks as they explore this option to expand their access to specialized talent, reduce labor and hiring costs and manage their growth demands. A key to successful and scalable nearshoring is using the build-operate-transfer (BOT) model to establish and bring a team up to operating capacity.

Instagram model with ‘biggest cheeks in the world’ wants more

This Ukrainian Instagram model was not being tongue in cheek when she said she wants even larger features.

Anastasia Pokreshchuk, 30, claims to have the “biggest cheeks in the world” — but wants to pump them up with fillers even further, the Daily Star reported.

“You may think that they are too big but I think that they’re a little bit small, I need to refresh them again soon,” the Kiev resident said.

Pokreshchuk received her first cheek injections four years ago and has not looked back.

“After I had the injections and saw the changes in my cheeks, I fell in love with them,” she said.

“I love them, I want them to look like this and I’m very happy. I regularly inject other parts of my face myself,” she added. “I understand that they look weird for other people but I don’t mind.”

Passage Bio’s PBGM01 shows encouraging pre-clinical benefits in murine model of GM1 gangliosidosis (NASDAQ:PASG)

Passage Bio (NASDAQ:PASG) announces publication of data in a murine model of GM1 gangliosidosis (GM1) demonstrating that a single intracerebroventricular injection of an optimized adeno-associated virus (PBGM01) into the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) resulted in significant expression of Beta-galactosidase (β-gal) in the brain and peripheral tissues, and demonstrated dose-related reductions in neuronal lysosomal storage lesions, neurological impairment and improvement in survival.

GM1 is a rare and often life-threatening lysosomal storage disease caused by mutations in the GLB1 gene, which encodes lysosomal acid β-gal.

The mice received the single administration at age one month and were evaluated over 300 days. β-gal activity was increased significantly in the CSF and serum of the vector-treated mice compared to vehicle control-treated mice.

Considerable improvements in gait assessments and preservation of neurological function were observed throughout the study period.

There were significant decreases in lysosomal storage lesions of vector-treated animals, and by day 300, all

Not all on board with Dist. 303’s hybrid model for high schoolers

Even as St. Charles High School students prepare to return to school next week as part of a limited hybrid learning model, many community members at Tuesday’s St. Charles Unit District 300 board meeting expressed frustration with the lack of progress in expanding in-person learning.

About 15 people took part in a “Learning is better in person” rally before the board meeting at Thompson Middle School. Several spoke to the board to plea for more in-person learning.

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

 

While high school students have been fully remote since the school year began because of the COVID-19 pandemic, District 303 elementary school students have been learning in person. Middle-school students have been learning in a hybrid model.

“While I’m not blaming anyone for this pandemic, I am, however, blaming you for your response to this pandemic,” Emily Leonard, a 2020 graduate of St. Charles East, said to the board members. “I’m crying out
