Just a random comment: keep in mind when reading explainers about the history of Ukraine if you're reading from the Ukrainian point of view, the Russian point of view, or the Ukrainian-American/Ukrainian-Canadian point of view. They are very different. Most from the Russian point of view omit how there came to be so many Russian speakers in the Eastern portion whereas this is a key part of the story in the Ukrainian-American version.
School in person tomorrow. 2 people in the school tested positive Friday (or at least a letter went home). We performed and reported their first at-home tests this afternoon (negative). I don't know that parents all over the county will be able to successfully both administer the test and report results. This version of the test required squeezing solution into a small vial, capping the vial, swabbing the nostrils, swirling the swab in the vial, squeezing the vial to wring out ("express") the liquid, re-capping, taking a smaller cap off, adding three drops to a small spot on the test piece, and reading 15-30 min later.... then I had to log in to each of the children's g=mail, fill out a google survey, and upload a picture of the test. We'll have to do this each of the next 4 weeks.
What you just described seems like a lot of steps.· I keep receipts. 5
I heard Kara Swisher talk about this today. She mentioned the challenges of doing all this. And Dr. Ashish Jha talked about the challenges of reporting that home-testing data. See: America’s Covid Response - Sway. (Highly recommend this episode) https://www.nytimes.com/2022/01/24/opinion/sway-kara-swisher-emily-oster-ashish-jha.html· StephAnie Wear A Mask 2
My larger institution just let us know that the other schol comm person (who sits at the medical institutions) has given notice. I guess there won't be any overlap with who gets hired for the first opening ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
What stock images can be used for a listing of research papers that don't have a print metaphor? Like no books on a desk or shelf of bound volumes?
That's a good question that I've pondered and given up on (too easily probably). I'm eager to see what suggestions you get here.· Stephen Francoeur

That's an excellent question. Certainly if they are reading the Kitchen every day they are reading analysis about the real limitations of scholarly communication during the pandemic. https://scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/2021/11/01/is-scientific-communication-fit-for-purpose/ https://scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/2020/10/19/are-publishers-learning/· Roger
So USPS officially announced the site was open: https://twitter.com/USPS/status/1483286737568813060 and then deleted the tweet. So wondering if it's not supposed to be open? I did get a confirmation
I also got a confirmation and see that our local news is sharing it as well: https://twitter.com/wzzm13/status/1483501073058906120· jsholman

UGH. someone for whom I've located information (not even worked with on a project but exchanged e-mails with) just sent an incorrect and awful e-mail to me about vaccine mandates and why they're leaving MPOW. They started out with saying they have an MS in EE ... like an MS in EE gives you the info you need to evaluate masks or vaccines? Now i'm all out of sorts. I guess there's no need to report them if they are already leaving but argh.
Joy. checked neighboring county's holdings for a book of knitting patterns - they always have a bunch more than my county does. ... first thing I find in ebooks in Hoopla is a conspiracy theory book by K e n n e d y. I think my county banned hoopla ebooks because there were questionable titles there. SIGH.
WHO is Janice Pilch and HOW could she have an illinois .edu address and be so completely wrong about the Maryland ebook law that she is MORE conservative than AAP? What the what?

It's pretty neat - it's traditional Hutsul style. Sorta log cabin built by craftsmen brought from Ukraine for the purpose. I don't know about a durable link but you can see the outside searching Holy Trinity PUCC Silver Spring· Christina Pikas

Snomicron has the streets iced over completely here. Kids off school again despite the fact they were supposed to be remote. And yet I work.
LOLOL old dude mad larger institution (with tens of thousands of users) didn't take him into account (no smart phone, MPOW so they can't remote into our computers) in their authentication set up.
I had not been paying attention to the weather forecast but apparently a few different models have us getting 12-14" tomorrow (some early on melting)... so that's exciting. (reminder: i'm in between DC and Balto and people don't know how to do snow around here)
I would have thought that 2010 taught everyone how to handle snow.· Julian 3
what's the new forecast for you?· StephAnie Wear A Mask
forecast is now 4-8 with boom forecast up to 12" I think we have about 5 now· Christina Pikas 1
