The Formaspace Invisishield is a transparent space divider available in glass or acrylic. The glass divider version can also serve as mobile dry erase board.

Find out what are the important questions we need to answer before reopening schools and going back to in-class learning.

It should be a national priority to get our kids back into school and keep them in school.”

— President Biden

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Parents are concerned.

Teachers are concerned.

Educators are concerned.

Public health authorities are concerned.

The question on everyone’s mind: when will it be safe to reopen schools again?

20 Questions To Answer To Reopen Schools Safely

Let’s look at the most recent information available to answer 20 of the most important questions facing parents, teachers, educators, and public health officials trying to decide when it’s safe to reopen schools.

1. President Biden Wants To Reopen Schools In 100 Days. What’s The Plan?

“It should be a national priority to get our kids back into school and keep them in school,” says President Biden. “If Congress provides the funding, we need to protect students, educators, and staff. If states and cities put strong public health measures in place that we all follow, then my team will work to see that the majority of our schools can be open by the end of my first 100 days.”

The incoming Biden administration has proposed a $400 billion pandemic response budget to increase vaccination rates and provide financial relief to schools, local governments, and small businesses. Here are some of the key proposed budget line items which affect (either directly or indirectly) the safe reopening of schools:

· $350 Billion Emergency Funding For State Local And Territorial Governments
Provides emergency aid to local governments hard-hit by tax revenue shortfalls to provide new funding sources for frontline workers, vaccine distribution, increase Covid testing, and costs associated with reopening schools.

· $130 Billion Fund To Help Schools Reopen
The plan provides for substantially increased school funding to modify school buildings for increased social distancing, reduced class sizes, personal protective equipment, and improved ventilation systems.

· Funding For 100,000 Public Health Workers To Manage Vaccine Outreach And Contact Tracing
Direct funding for 100,000 public health workers to established new vaccine outreach programs and enhanced contract tracing efforts, with particular emphasis placed on disadvantaged communities hard-hit by the pandemic.

· $50 Billion Expanded Testing Program
This funding would support increased testing by local governments and schools, including the purchase of rapid Covid tests and expanded lab capacity.

· $20 Billion National Vaccination Program
The proposal would help ramp up a national vaccination program similar to the massive polio vaccination campaigns of the 1950s, with funding for community vaccination centers and mobile units for rural areas.

· Emergency Paid Sick Leave And Medical Leave
Paid medical leave for those who do not have it will allow workers to stay home if they suspect they are sick (avoiding dangerous “presenteeism”) and help parents take care of sick children at home.

· 15% Increase In Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Benefits
The proposal would increase SNAP benefits available to low-income families by 15% until October. Additionally, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) would receive an additional $3 billion investment.

· Increase Minimum Wage To $15 Per Hour
The federally mandated minimum wage for non-exempt employees would be increased from $7.25 to $15.00 per hour.

· Emergency Increase In Child Tax Credit
The proposal would expand child tax credits for one year, allowing families to receive a tax credit of up to $4,000 for a child under 13, or $8,000 for two or more children.

2. What’s The Latest CDC Guidance On Covid Safety At K-12 Schools?

The CDC has ranked the relative risk of different school learning models from the lowest to the highest.

Lowest Risk: Virtual only classes, activities, and events.
Some Risk: Hybrid learning models that augment virtual classes with limited in-person learning, provided students and teachers follow scrupulous hygiene practices and remain in isolated “bubbles” or rigorously applied staggered schedules.
Medium Risk: Hybrid learning models where many students engage in in-person learning in larger classrooms with some mixing of different groups of students and teachers across schooldays.
Higher Risk: Full-time in-person learning activities and events with some mixing of different groups of students and teachers across schooldays.
Highest Risk: Full-time in-person learning activities and events with students and teachers freely mixing between classes and activities, poor sanitary hygiene practices, and freely sharing objects.

3. What Can Facility Managers Do To Make K-12 Schools Safer?

K-12 school facility managers have had to respond quickly to the challenges of conducting in-class learning during the Covid pandemic.

Some the primary strategies include reducing class sizes and spreading desks further apart to increase social distancing, increasing ventilation and classrooms, either by opening windows during temperate days or revamping ventilation systems to draw air away (ideally up and out of the facility), and adding transparent dividers for students, teachers, for administrative support staff must work close to one another.

The CDC has also created “Plan, Prepare, and Respond” toolkits for facility managers and administrators operating school and child care programs, including:

· COVID-19 Mitigation Toolkit
How to prevent the spread of Covid in your facility.
· Five-Step School Walk-Through Guide
This guide provides a hands-on approach to getting ready for in-person learning.
· How to Set up Your Classroom
Ways to modify layout and classroom behaviors to reduce virus risks.
· Guide for Teachers and Staff Returning to Class
What teachers, staff, and families need to know about returning to school.

4. What About Unconventional Or Alternative Schooling Ideas?

During the spring, summer, and fall, many school districts experimented with conducting in-person learning within outdoor classroom spaces.

Arvig’s Fiber Optic Infrastructure Program for Multi-Unit Complexes Completes 10,000 Installations

Telecommunications provider ensures superior wireless connectivity with fiber optic infrastructure now installed in more than 10,000 apartments and townhomes

Arvig’s broadband MultiWav service is prepaid, and rates are locked in with no additional fees, offering customers maximum flexibility for their data needs.”

— Chase Rydberg

ROCHESTER, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, telecommunications and broadband provider Arvig has announced it has installed a fiber optic connection into more than 10,000 townhome, condo and apartment units within the Twin Cities, St. Cloud, and Rochester area. The telecommunications provider continues to grow its high-speed internet connectivity offerings, a service that has become increasingly important with many now working and learning from home because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Started in 2015, Arvig’s efforts to install a premium high-speed internet service using fiber optic infrastructure into multi-family dwelling units has proven to be a selling point for property managers and landlords. The product, known as Multiwav internet, provides instant internet and data-streaming capabilities to new residents. Arvig’s efforts to install high-speed internet connectivity in new multi-family homes and those apartments, condominium, and townhome complexes built in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s have improved properties by creating a capital improvement to hundreds of apartment communities and homeowners’ associations in the form of significantly improved technological infrastructure, all at no cost to the homeowners or owner/managers.

“People want to know their broadband options when going into a new home,” said Chase Rydberg, General Manager for Arvig’s MultiWav internet service in the Twin Cities region. “Arvig’s broadband MultiWav service is prepaid, and rates are locked in with no additional fees, offering customers maximum flexibility for their data needs. Right now, it is important to keep everyone online with people working from home and distance learning,” he added.

To begin service, all customers must do is contact Arvig to start a pre-paid monthly internet service. The base MultiWav plan costs $40 per month and offers symmetrical 100 megabits per second download/upload speeds, faster data-streaming capabilities than the 20th-century copper or coaxial cable systems offered by other telecommunications providers. Because Arvig’s technology has previously been installed, no onsite visit from a telecommunications technician to install a DSL modem or other technology is required to activate service. Arvig’s MultiWav product for townhomes, condominiums and apartments is all automated. One simply visits multiwav.arvig.com or dials 612.900.1900 to start service.

Arvig does not have data caps. Arvig currently provides broadband service to more than 51,000 customers in 52 different counties and nearly 200 different communities across the state of Minnesota. Approximately 6,500 of those customers are businesses, including more than 700 medical facilities and 300 school systems.

About Arvig
Established in 1950, Arvig has grown from a small, family-owned telephone company to one of the largest independent telecommunications and broadband providers in the nation. Arvig has expanded its business and technology services to better serve customers, improving internet access in some of the country’s most underserved rural areas. Arvig currently provides broadband service to more than 51,000 customers in 52 different counties and nearly 200 different communities across the state of Minnesota. Approximately 6,500 of those customers are businesses, including more than 700 medical facilities and 300 school systems.

Mike Ionita on Turning Your Passion into a Business

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA , CANADA, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mike Ionita, the founder of Crux Video Game Design in Vancouver, was recently featured in two exclusive interviews with Thrive Global and Ideamensch. He primarily spoke about the importance of pursuing one’s passion and turning it into a career.

Videos games and animation have been Mike Ionita’s passion ever since he was a child, when he bathed in the glow of a television screen as he watched Tom & Jerry on Saturday mornings or when he battled his opponents in Street Fighter II at the local arcade.

That passion led him to study animation at Vancouver Film School and work for several animation studios thereafter, before he founded Crux Video Game Design and began producing his own video games and original content for clients.

“I started this studio to not only bring my ideas to life, but also to help others bring their ideas to life,” Mike Ionita shared with Ideamensch.

When asked what advice he would give to young professionals seeking to turn their own passions into successful careers, Ionita stressed the following three points: follow your dreams, no matter what they are; if you’re going to be successful, you need a road map; and find time to disconnect from technology.

“I have very strict technology rules in my home and I only focus on one thing at a time. When I am working, put my phone in another room. When I am in a meeting, I am focused on the person talking,” said Mike Ionita.

“It is important to only focus on one thing at a time and be intentional about the time you spend on your phone/devices.”

Speaking with Thrive Global, Ionita expressed that he considers himself lucky as he was able to realize his lifelong dream by turning his passion for video games into a successful business.

Even within the past year, as many industries have been negatively impacted by the fallout of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the gaming industry — Cruz Video Game Design included — has remained incredibly resilient.

“At first, the video game industry was booming during the pandemic. Most video game developers, publishers, and operators were able to maintain operations with employees working remotely. Additionally, the number of people quarantined at home with nothing to do meant record numbers in online gaming,” said Mike Ionita.

“However, multiple projects we were working on were put on hold. Additionally, our clients were much more reluctant with their money, putting subscriptions on hold. Fortunately, after our free video game release, things have started moving again.”

For more information, please visit https://mikeionita.com/.

About Mike Ionita
Mike Ionita was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, and attended Vancouver Film School. Excelling at everything from sketching to digital painting and animation, Mike was fortunate enough to be hired following graduation. Working at various animation studios around Vancouver, he found his passion when he started producing his own storylines, characters, and landscapes. Driven by his personal passion for creation, Ionita founded Crux Video Game Design. Crux Video Game Design produces video games for clients as well as original content exclusive to their growing online community. Their first game was transposed more than 250,000 times within its first week and the company has been steadily growing ever since.

New Franchiselenders.com website connects Franchise Investors with Banks nationwide

The site will simplify and enhance the banking process.

HAZLET TWP., NJ, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Diamond Financial (New Jersey Office), a nationwide specialty Franchise financing consulting firm with access to many banks and lenders, processing both SBA and non-SBA alternative funding programs, has recently launched a new website www.franchiselenders.com that gives new franchise investors, existing franchise owners and franchisors a connection to the various funding sources who are not only more aggressive lending to the Franchise industry but who have also not tightened up their lending requirements because of what the pandemic has done to the economy and to the small business owner.

“Most banks have either stopped lending on start-ups and expansion loan requests or have made their loan requirements even more conservative” says Don Johnson, owner of FranchiseLenders.com and 20-year veteran of Franchise lending and whose firm works with hundreds of franchise brands. “Most borrowers get declined for financing because their loan package presentation is not correct or complete and is not presented to the right and best bank for that particular type of loan. FranchiseLenders takes care of all those concerns for them”, Johnson says. The new website will also let a borrower learn their loan potential within 24 hours and offers several services to the Franchisor, including letting them know quickly which of their investor/franchisees is pre-qualified and financeable, saving them time and money. With many people losing their jobs and businesses, unfortunately, franchising with its low failure rate is an attractive option, but most have never experienced applying for a business loan or even filled out a personal financial statement or know how to write a business plan.

FranchiseLenders.com provides complete services from start to finish offering a one-step shop approach to maximize loan potential for any type of business loan request. Josh York of Gymguyz, a current Diamond Financial Franchisor client and CEO & Founder nationwide says “Trying to find a consistent bank to finance our expansion was tough even before 2020, now it’s off the charts – it’s a good thing Don and his team at FranchiseLenders.com is there for us. FranchiseLenders.com is essentially, in the constant changing world, an important source for the most recent updated industry information which is critical for borrower success! ENDS

Maryland Vegan Eats celebrates its eighth semi-annual campaign by expanding Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week for the month of February.

It allows restaurants to flex a muscle they aren't always utilizing and expand their demographic to an underserved community. And please don't let it be another freaking salad!”

— Samantha Claassen & Naijha Wright-Brown

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Maryland Vegan Eats is expanding Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week for the month of February, from 2/5 – 2/28, as an opportunity for patrons all over Delmarva to visit new and past participating restaurants. As more people seek out and inquire about plant-based options on restaurant menus, customer demand continues to increase while at the same time motivating eateries that may not have otherwise been considered veg-friendly now looking for ways to introduce new plant-based offerings. As the public looks forward to Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week, the organizers, Samantha Claassen of Golden West Café and Naijha Wright-Brown of The Land of Kush, anticipate patrons getting excited to see the new vegan menu items

Nothing brings people together quite like good vegan and plant-based food. Again, Maryland Vegan Eats is looking to entice residents within the state and visitors from the surrounding state borders to patronize participating establishments through carry-out, curbside, delivery (if within the service area), or dine-in (if permitted). Unlike a traditional restaurant week that provides a prix fixe menu, participating restaurants are encouraged to create a selection of plant-based items to be offered throughout the vegan weeks – with the understanding that inclusivity also means affordability.

Samantha Claassen stated, “It allows restaurants to flex a muscle they aren't always utilizing and expand their demographic to an underserved community.”

Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week allows for restaurants to be more creative with their cuisines using plant-based and vegan ingredients while at the same time expanding their reach into new markets. Part of the success of Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week is the liberty that vegan, plant-based, and even veg-curious patrons have in choosing these options over meat-centric dishes because of increased availability at more restaurant locations.

Naijha Wright-Brown expressed, “And, please don’t let it be another freaking salad!”

During Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week, no longer do customers have to ask for a meal catered to their dietary restrictions which can leave some feeling embarrassed and awkward. Customers do not need to act shy or feel disappointed by salad or French fries being the only vegan options on the menu. Chefs are given the opportunity to show off their true culinary skills by creating plant-based food art with the hope that people will vote for their dish as the best. Restaurants wishing to sign up for this month-long challenge can go to www.mdveganeats.com for more information.

The list of current participating restaurants and eateries include:
Golden West Cafe, The Land of Kush, Gangster Vegan, Harmony Bakery, PLNT Burger (Columbia & Silver Spring), Treehouse Café and Juice Bar, MEZ, Tom Cat’s Kitchen, Charm School Chocolate, REVIVE, Foraged Eatery, Johnny Rad’s, Great Sage, Roland Park Bagels, Cloudy Donuts, Snake Hill, and STEM Farm + Kitchen.

Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week is sponsored by the Black Vegetarian Society of Maryland, Womxn Funders in Animal Rights, A Well-Fed World, VegFund, Eat The Change, Mercy for Animals, Fleet Street Write-Up, Blue Fork Marketing, and Midday Maryland.

Maryland Vegan Eats is the brainchild of the Land of Kush and the Golden West Cafe. The mission of Vegan Restaurant Week is to bridge the gap by increasing the awareness, benefits, and accessibility of a plant-based diet through a fun, innovative, and community-based experience. Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week became an instant hit when more than 30 local Baltimore restaurants joined for the inaugural event in August of 2017.

At Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week, everyone is welcome at the table. Join in.

Building Great Doctors After Graduation: Residents Medical Programs In the United States

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Residency programs in the US are meant to provide a good medical experience for students graduating from med schools. Medical schools impart theoretical and practical knowledge regarding different medicinal practices. However, that alone cannot make a good physician.

Medical practitioners often need to function in various settings and cope with many difficult situations and attendant challenges. That is to say, medical skills and knowledge alone do not make a good physician. The latter also need to be equipped with skills such as working in high-stress settings, making sound judgments depending on the situation at hand, having empathy for others, mental and physical stamina, emotional stability, maturity, and good communication/problem-solving skills.

Of course, not all of these can simply be learned by attending a residency program. The programs are intended to infuse these skills and abilities into med students to help them make the transition from good med school students to good doctors.

Apart from this, all residency programs also acquaint med school graduates with the many different processes and procedures that are part of the daily functioning of large medical facilities and hospitals. Residents learn to assess incoming patients, offer primary consultation, perform physical examinations, and order diagnostic tests. These will be often carried out in consultation with senior residents or attending physicians. According to one's specialty, residents in a program will also perform treatments and diagnostic procedures. Going on regular patient rounds and calls are also part of the responsibilities of a resident doctor.

With each passing year, residents will need to undertake more responsibilities, which also means that they are given more independence regarding their respective tasks. Senior residents, for example, will often carry out tasks similar to experienced attending physicians. They also play a key role in mentoring first-year residents.

Residents Medical Finding a Good Match

For the above reasons, finding an appropriate residency program—one that will most benefit a particular student and help them prepare for the realization of their future goals and ambitions becomes key. This is not an easy task. One needs to do their research to zero in on the residency programs of their choice, and then, of course, they will need to get selected by that program.

That is where a medical residency placement service, such as Residents Medical, can be of immense help to fresh med school graduates. Residents Medical, thanks to their extensive database, will perform research on behalf of the applying student.

Unlike many such placement services, Residents Medical has its own screening and assessment process. They will only offer residency placement opportunities for students who meet their established criteria (which include experience, USMLE scores, and
other credentials of an applying candidate).

Once a candidate has been accepted, the expert placement advisors of the Residents Medical Group will not only find the appropriate residency program for them but also prepare a bespoke education and guidance schedule to best prepare them for the interview at the program in question. For candidates who (in addition to meeting the standard criteria) are already emotionally mature enough and possess good social and interpersonal skills, the Residents Medical team will do their best to leverage their resources to place these highly qualified candidates at some of the best residency programs in the country.
