Re: Coronavirus COVID-19

Thailand is one of the countries that was lauded as “doing it right” with super restrictive rules and lockdowns. They were pretty much a COVID-free oasis up until when I left. Well, the party’s over now... cases are exploding, Bangkok is reporting 1000+ new cases per day currently, and the Sinovac ...

Re: One time transfer rule aporoved

How many people would actually do this without regard to major? If it's tied to the grad transfer thingie, it MIGHT work, as it's usually fairly easy to get into an unrelated major for a grad degree so long as you can meet the quals, but if one is still an undergrad, and the new school doesn't have...

Re: Here We Go Again (Minneapolis, MN)

I know the wording/charges are different in different states, but if you unintentionally cause the death of someone through you’re own stupidity, that’s generally not murder, but rather a negligent homicide or manslaughter. Just like Chauvin has three charges against him, I'd bet she sees the same ...
