Geography @MemorialU is remote this fall! How will it work? Here is the plan for each course offering, how much time is required to meet in person (if any), and any other useful info for deciding your fall 2020 course load. Here we go!
@memorialhss @CITL_MemorialU @MUN_Science
@MemorialU @memorialhss @CITL_MemorialU @MUN_Science First year! #GEOG1050 is our totally rad first year intro to all things Geography, which is, it turns out, all things! There are four sections, w/JFinnis, @lynch_111, @engelmonica, & @Paul_m_Ledger. All have *optional* synchronous sessions weekly if you want time w/class IRL.
Second year! #GEOG2001 Cultural Geography w/ @DeanBavington will be completely *asynchronous*. In other words, do it on your own time to fit with your schedule. Learn about nature & culture, colonialism, place, identity, global cultures of commodities, media, tourism, oh my.

Newfoundlanders are well known for lending a hand in a storm.

When USS Truxtun was sinking off the coast of Newfoundland in 1942, Lanier Phillips’ was told he’d be lynched if he made it ashore through the frigid and oil-covered Atlantic waters.

A thread for #MLKDay. #nlwx
Lanier thought his best chance to survive was ashore. On a small raft, he made it through the howling winds, icy waves, and driving sleet to the foot of a towering cliff.

When the Newfoundlanders found him, he was fading in and out of consciousness.

What would they do to him?
He woke and saw women nursing survivors, scrubbing the oil from their skin.

Violet Pike was exasperated.
She couldn’t remove the black from Lanier’s skin. She kept scrubbing and scrubbing to no avail.

"The oil has gotten into his pores. It just won't come off."

This is the first opportunity they’ve had for this, so asking people to really adhere to the declared state of emergency and stay off the roads.

@RNC_PoliceNL able to respond to emergencies, but shift change will take a couple hours.

Cadigan says not to take the risk of getting yourself stuck somewhere you’ll need emergency response to help you out.

He also says best thing people can do is to check in on neighbours, people you know.
