Foreign students at US universities who only offer online courses in the winter semester because of the corona virus are supposed to leave the country according to the will of the US government.
The US Immigration Service ICE announced that foreign students enrolled in such universities would have to leave the country or move to a university that offers face-to-face classes. Otherwise they face expulsion.
Foreigners who wanted to study at a university that taught exclusively online from autumn onwards would not be issued a visa. They are not allowed to enter the country. The new regulation affects students who hold or wish to apply for an F-1 student visa.

Having studied a music degree, then #opera in London, I realise the #LNP would consider my training a waste of life. And in a way, it was, if my only metric was financial or employment. But wouldn't change a thing. I have travelled all over the world, sung for royalty...
I've been fortunate to experience a career in the arts, to inspire joy & passion in others with sound... just my voice, my body, my *breath*. I've recreated voices Mozart once heard in his head. Do you know how it feels to sing Strauss over a massive orchestra? I do.
I've wept in dressing rooms because two tiny folds of cartilage in my throat wouldn't do what I wanted. I've struggled with colds on opening nights, sacrificed my social life, battled my weight... studied, listened, learned my craft obsessively to be as good as I could be.

On the 21k USD issue,

I want to contribute as a parent and an educator. Bearing in mind that I do not want to write a book here, I'll limit myself to just a few points.

There are quite a few things at play in this scenario; first being that this must be a dysfunctional family,
if the voice in the background is actually that of the mother.

Also evident from the father's statements that the bad performance is a pattern.

I read many of the tweets responding to the video and saw different angles people took, so I might be making reference to some
of them.

I want to address both the angle of the children and that of the parents.

Hi everyone. Trying to stay quiet and mindful during these times - so not posting here often. But here's a quick thread for my #academictwitter colleagues and those working in #postsecondary #university #college settings now. /1
Some of us in teaching positions are in the position of deciding whether to "stay the course", provide a sense of "normalcy", etc. when it comes to our coursework and obligations to students.

So a few words for those not sure what business as usual might entail. /2
I'll preface this with an acknowledgement that I'm 1) a tenure-track prof w/ 2) considerable autonomy in an academic program 3) w/leadership that respects the work I do in the classroom. I realize this isn't typical, so what I'm sharing might not reflect your situation. FWIW: /3

Wired: Social distancing so that we do not overwhelm our healthcare system.

Tired: You have 12.75 hours to transition your classes to an online format, effectively kneecapping IT's ability to do anything as they are overwhelmed by faculty unprepared for this transition. 1/n
The first tweet is pretty specific to my university, but the following tweets are more general comments about how #highered should be handling this crisis.

If this is the threat that our leaders say it is, then we need to be decisive & find a way to close out the semester. 2/n
Forcing a sudden shift to online classes is not courageous & inspiring, it is exploitative. Extra, uncompensated labor on an indefinite basis for #faculty and #staff is unacceptable. 3/n

Read sad story last night about Dr. Bucci, 50 year old Phychology & Brain Sciences Dept. Chairman, at Dartmouth that committed #Suicide 11 months after a lawsuit was filed by graduate #students in his department. He
2/ was NOT accused of sexual misconduct, but named in the suit for knowing about the professors’ inappropriate behavior as the Chair.I share many of the same feelings he expressed to friends and colleagues in his emails before he took his own life like: the case was deeply
3/ personal; reputation had been damaged; physical health diminished; false portrayal of his actions; being blamed unfairly; allegations & process “unfair”; how can they ever undo what they did to me & #wronglyaccused. Similarly, how I had reported the #disability

Pues me voy a animar como dije el otro día a hacer un proyecto 365, pero en vez de haciendo fotos, editando fotos mías antiguas, random, basadas en el mood de cada día.
La única limitación que me voy a poner, va a ser el formato 1:1... A ver lo que sale xD
I´ll say it also in English :)
I´m gonna try a photography 365 project, but instead of taking photos, processing old random photos of mine...
Only one rule: the square format.
Let´s see what I got, which will be directly affected by the mood of the day...
