    EDINSON CAVANI has been credited with getting Mason Greenwood back on track. The teenager has suffered a dip in form this season scoring just once in 16 appearances before hitting the target in Manchester United's 3-2 FA Cup fourth round victory over Liverpool on Sunday. 2Mason Greenwood has been helped by the experience of Edinson CavaniCredit: EPA His finish was superb as he chested down a crossfield ball from Marcus Rashford before firing into the far bottom corner. It was notable Cavani went straight to him to have a word. Now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes his time spent on the training ground with the veteran striking legend will start to pay further dividends. Solskjaer said: “We think Mason is going be very important in second half of the season but it's not just going happen by itself. “He scored against West Ham a while back as well and was expected...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The University of California says they plan to have students return back to its 10 campuses for in-person instruction when the Fall 2021 school year begins. COVID-19 vaccines are being administered now to frontline healthcare workers, and could be available soon to students, staff and faculty, so UC says they are getting ready to welcome students back to its campuses – while still observing virus prevention and safety guidelines. UC President Michael V. Drake, M.D., says he arrived at the decision with the 10 UC chancellors. “Current forecasts give us hope that in the fall our students can enjoy a more normal on-campus experience,” Drake said in a statement. The pandemic upended the college experience and plans for many students. The abrupt move to remote learning made living on campus unnecessary for many students, while prospective students put their plans on hold in the hopes of...
    The University of Maryland in College Park has released the results of an undergraduate survey showing many students struggled with learning in the fall while navigating the coronavirus pandemic. Students were invited to complete the “Fall 2020 Student Experience Survey” in October and November. Of the nearly 4,600 undergraduate respondents, 75% said that they found studying effectively ranged from “somewhat to very difficult” during the fall semester. Additionally, 81% said that maintaining motivation was difficult and 72% said that maintaining research productivity was difficult. 67% of students said that they felt isolated from the university community. 89% of those who took the survey said that their classes were entirely or almost entirely online, 10% said that they had a mixture of online and face-to-face classes and 1% said that they had only in-person classes. 64% of the students said that their experience in the fall semester was at least somewhat...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Virtual learning is the era of COVID-19 has gone to the next level. A professor at Temple University’s Klein College of Media and Communication in Philadelphia is using a robot to teach an on-site class for aspiring journalists. Professor Amy Caples conducts her popular Media Performance undergraduate course from home with the use of a telepresence robot named Sheldon as an homage one of the main characters of the hit TV show, “The Big Bang Theory.” “The fact that they now have a robot in their classroom it just sort of makes the whole thing — of course you, of course you have a robot, of course you do a show from home because everything is different now,” Caples tells CBS Philly‘s Natasha Brown. Caples guides the robot around the studio while giving instructions to students. “Shell,” as it’s nicknamed, is a valuable part of learning,...
    Obi Toppin, the Knicks’ rookie lottery pick, had bright moments in preseason, but more regarding his passing than his dunking. The 22-year-old out of Dayton still has a lot to figure out. Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau isn’t surprised. Toppin, a late-bloomer from Brooklyn, could have used a summer league, but that got zapped by the pandemic. “The passing part has been really good,’’ Thibodeau said on the eve of Wednesday’s season opener in Indiana. “He’s probably rushing a bit offensively. That’s the part of his game, I’m not worried about. That will come. He’s a gifted scorer. Not having summer league and [voluntary] practices slowed him a bit. He’s coming on in practice and that usually will reflect in the games.” The next step during Toppin’s rookie ride will be his regular-season Knicks debut Wednesday. The four preseason games will turn into a footnote. “I always said, this opportunity for...
    SONOMA COUNTY, Calif. (KGO) -- An animal educational outreach program is pivoting during the pandemic and has opened up the Sonoma Sloth House for guests to interact and learn about the animals.The Sonoma Sloth House was born from Brandi Blue and her partner Daniel Moore who run Safari Encounters. The program cares for about 60 animals they've rescued or acquired from around the country.Pre-pandemic, the pair generated revenue with school and hospital visits along with convention appearances.Brandi shares how it took her and Daniel four months to make this former sunroom over."We worked 14-hours a day... we spouted all of our savings into this. It's not like we had investors for it. It's a close-to-home project. We did everything by ourselves," says Brandi, who sits next to Sid, one of three sloths.The plan is to eventually expand their offerings to the public with other animals like porcupines and fish.

    SAN ANTONIO – A mother in San Antonio is weighing the COVID-19 risks of sending her son back to in-person learning at Northside ISD after struggling with online schooling. Many students around the nation are struggling with remote learning and are falling behind. Last month, Northside ISD revealed that its failure rate was close to double compared to the previous year’s first grading period. Northside ISD parent Katrina Ashworth said her two children have been learning online this year due to COVID-19 concerns. “My youngest, she has asthma. She’s had a lot of breathing issues since she was an infant,” Ashworth said. For her 9-year-old son, learning at home has been a significant challenge. “The oldest is definitely struggling with a lot of anger. He’s got some things bottled up,” Ashworth said. She said her son also misses the social interaction with other students. His latest progress report showed he was falling...
    Mets: Luis Rojas treats the 2020 season as a learning experience and is eager to return By: Andres Chavez November 25, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditWhen the New York Mets welcomed new owner Steve Cohen and president Sandy Alderson, they said that it was “very likely” that Luis Rojas, who led the team to a 26-34 mark in the shortened 2020 season, would return to be the manager in 2021. Alderson stopped short of writing it in stone because he wanted to hire a president of baseball operations and a general manager first, to gather their opinion. However, the landscape has changed. The New York Mets won’t hire a president of baseball operations, and Alderson will fulfill the role. They will, instead, focus on bringing a GM. What was Alderson’s first decision as the person leading the baseball department? Officialize Luis Rojas as the Mets’ skipper....

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia is taking virtual learning to the next level. What may seem like a scene out of a movie is real life for some area students, and this kind of learning is making a huge difference Aspiring journalists at Temple University are learning the mass communications industry inside their campus studio. For many of these students, it’s their only in-person class since the university went all virtual two weeks into the start of the school year due to rising COVID-19 cases. Not only is this the only chance these students get to assemble and learn in-person, it’s also the only class where their professor is in their midst via a robotic presence. “The fact that they now have a robot in their classroom it just sort of makes the whole thing — of course you, of course you have a robot, of course you do a show...

    Remote learning could help to remake the city’s coveted Gifted and Talented programs, Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza said Thursday night. Speaking to members of a Queens parental advisory board, Carranza said the Department of Education is weighing how entry into accelerated programs will be handled this year and beyond. The schools chief said competitive admissions were upended by the coronavirus because traditional metrics like grades and attendance were scrapped when schools closed in March. “There is an opportunity to innovate here that we do not want to pass by,” he said. Carranza said the wider adoption of remote learning could allow more kids to experience advanced education. While Gifted and Talented programs have been limited by physical space, he said digital teaching is less constrained. “In a virtual environment, if you have some criteria, then a student could ostensibly, with a very gifted teacher, have more students having an...

    Last Wednesday afternoon, Rachel, 19, picked up her mother and siblings from the Minneapolis-based homeless shelter they’re staying at and brought them to a city park. They pulled up to the curb and her five younger siblings piled out. Her mother grabbed some lunch food from the shelter, packaged up in to-go boxes.  Rachel pulled out her cellphone and texted: “I’m in the red van.” I’d just pulled up, a few spots behind them. Rachel (who’s name has been changed for privacy reasons) had agreed to do an interview to share her experience with distance learning while experiencing homelessness. She and her family have been homeless for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, and for various periods prior.  Last spring, when all schools shifted to at-home learning, Rachel only made it a couple of weeks before dropping out of her St. Paul-based charter school, High School for Recording Arts. She...

    CHICAGO — Among the factors Chicago Public Schools is weighing when deciding whether to reopen school buildings: the experience of the Archdiocese of Chicago’s 150-plus campuses, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Tuesday. The mayor, who oversees public schools in Chicago and appoints the schools chief and board, is expected to make the final call about reopening campuses along with city health officials. Chicago started the school year virtually three weeks ago after initially planning to begin the year with a hybrid schedule.  Meanwhile, the Archdiocese of Chicago, which is the state’s largest private school operator with 70,000 students last spring, reopened its campuses in late August. Schools are offering full-day instruction — some larger campuses have hybrid schedules where students go a few days a week — and families have the option of choosing all-virtual instruction.  “We haven’t made a decision yet on whether [reopening] is going to be possible,”...
    PLANO, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – A group of students in Plano are coming to the rescue of others across North Texas who they worry will struggle with online learning. Four Plano West Senior High School juniors have created a new service called TutorScope. It offers free online tutoring to students who need help from ten tutors who happen to be current high school students themselves. “There’s a lot of things that you miss that you could be getting with live teaching especially for students that don’t have a lot of resources,” says Charvi Goyal, TutorScope President. “Most of our students are in the first grade to the fifth grade range.” The 15-minute online sessions are free and so far more than 200 students have used it. The teenage brains behind TutorScope believe they offer something adults can’t. “A lot of students feel like they can be intimidated when talking to adults...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Starting next week, hundreds of Philadelphia students will be heading to access centers for supervised care while they learn digitally. On Friday, volunteers were working to ensure those children have the supplies they need to start the new school year. Volunteers started early Friday morning filling hundreds of backpacks with school supplies for children who will be entering access centers on Sept. 8. “It’s an amazing opportunity to have kids have that feeling of really returning back and starting their year,” Cynthia Figueroa, deputy mayor of the Office of Children and Family Services, said. Thirty-one access centers will be available for the most vulnerable students in grades K-6 who need a supervised place to go for digital learning. It’s just the first phase of a city initiative that will ultimately accommodate thousands of students. “The centers are all over the city. The first phase is 31...
    Many college students starting classes in the fall of 2020 are, unfortunately, going to miss out on the full college experience having been relegated to remote learning by the COVID-19 pandemic. For those students stuck home, there will be no hanging out on the campus green, no late-night cram study sessions with friends, no new friends (or more) to meet, and no beer pong, beer bongs, or bongs generally. And frankly, that sucks. But one critical element of that college experience need not be lacking just because you can’t physically go to school this year: the education. With the right setup for remote college learning, you can still have a successful experience engaging with your professors and fellow students.To create that setup at home, you just need a few good gadgets, many of which you likely already have. As you arrange your remote college learning space, try to create an...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — It’s been a challenging time for parents and their school-age children. The pandemic has changed how they’re learning. But as the school year starts, a new Chicago-based tech company is helping parents help each other. It’s already happening in Highland Park. CBS 2’s Jim Williams explains. “Daunting” is how Jen Luby described the thoughts of another school year for her seven-yea- old daughter Sloane, if last spring was any indication. “It wasn’t good for our families.

    YONKERS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Several of the largest districts in Westchester County will start the school year remotely. That includes Yonkers, New Rochelle, and White Plains. Administrators are promising remote learning will be significantly better this fall than it was in the spring, CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported Tuesday. When schools closed in March and remote learning was rolled out in a coronavirus-fueled rush, many parents felt the experience was just adequate, often lacking engagement with teachers working from home. “It would be nice to see more of the teachers. Not that they didn’t do an excellent job in the spring, but it was tough,” parent Jason Carter said. Districts say they’ll apply what they learned this spring in the fall.

    In a letter to the editor published in the University of Notre Dame student newspaper on Tuesday, several professors defended the value of the campus experience. The University of Notre Dame suspended in-person classes last week after a spike in positive coronavirus cases. In a letter to the editor published on Tuesday, five professors at the University of Notre Dame urged administrators to keep the campus open for the remainder of the academic year. The professors argue that students experience significant benefits from the on-campus learning experience. A new danger stalks the world, and it is not clear when we will have it under control. Nevertheless, we think the right decision is to have students learn and live together in person. We recognize there are some risks, especially to faculty and staff, but we do not think they are high enough to deprive students of the opportunities we were fortunate...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Just weeks before the start of the new school year, city leaders on Monday announced a new outdoor learning initiative — an idea that’s worked well for summer camps. It’s not exactly a classroom, but a field is where hundreds of kids between the ages of 4 and 13 got together during the last eight weeks at Asphalt Green Summer Camp, and what was learned there will translate to schools. “A lot of our managers this summer are classroom teachers who feel more prepared as they head back into the classrooms because it’s not this scary concept as much anymore. It’s something they have seen in practice,” camp director Katie Duffy told CBS2’s Kevin Rincon.

    Students at dozens of universities have circulated petitions demanding a reduction in tuition, with more schools switching to online teaching or entirely abandoning plans to reopen in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Schools have recently started to accept new students back, but controversies immediately plagued reopening plans as freshmen classes at several schools ignored quarantine and distance rules. Purdue, Syracuse and UConn administrations all suspended students over such violations, usually due to a large party – typical of any incoming freshman class. As coronavirus cases surge in some states, other schools have been forced to reconsider reopening plans. Ithaca College and Michigan State backtracked on initial plans after seeing how some schools struggled to handle safety concerns, with both schools opting for online-only classes.

    The Chicago Blackhawks were given an opportunity to play spoiler this summer due to the NHL’s expanded 24-team playoff. Though they came up short against the Vegas Golden Knights, they still have a lot to be proud of. Though the NHL regular season was cut short for all teams on March 12 due to concerns regarding the Coronavirus pandemic, the Chicago Blackhawks appeared to have written off their season much earlier. At the trade deadline, the Blackhawks moved on from a few prominent pieces from their roster including defenseman Erik Gustafsson and goalie Robin Lehner. Though the Blackhawks had been playing better heading into the deadline, these trades signaled a “throwing in the towel” of sorts. Playoff chances tenuous at best, Blackhawks ownership looked to recoup value for some of their departing assets. After a decade of contention and three Stanley Cups, the Chicago Blackhawks were rebuilding. However, with the...
    (CBS4) – The Cherry Creek School District starts school on Monday and for a lot of students, that comes with some jitters before the first day of school, even as some will start online first. “I know for me part of the problem is I would like a nice high school experience,” Bekah Spors said. What Spor wishes would happen is what a lot of students are hoping for, but the pressure also builds for high school seniors like her.  “We’re relying a little bit on ourselves to teach us material,” Spors explained. Spors not only wants good grades but she’s trying to get into her dream college. So tonight she’s also making sure she’s reviewing all the materials she needs for online learning as well as in-person later. “Right now I’ve checked up on all the protections Creek has taken just to be sure I need to wear a...
    STANFORD, Calif. (KGO) -- Stanford University is scrapping plans to provide undergraduate, on-campus housing, and "almost all" undergraduate in-person learning due to the pandemic. For now, changes would impact the autumn quarter.In a letter out Thursday, university president, Marc Tessier-Lavigne wrote in-part:"We will not be able to invite first-year, sophomore and new transfer undergraduate cohorts to be in residence on campus for the autumn quarter, as we had hoped.

    SAN JOSE (KPIX) – Students in San Jose attended their first day of school all online Wednesday after a last-minute deal this week allowing teachers who need to work from home to do so. The San Jose Teachers Association union says the majority are working from their school classrooms and distance learning this Fall will be ‘night and day’ from Spring. For teachers at Hoover Middle School, logging on at a virtually empty campus was the better option. “Being able to come to the classroom gives them more space and privacy to do their job,” said Hoover Middle School Principal Stephanie Palmeri-Farias. “The majority of teachers were comfortable coming back into the classroom today but there was a considerable number of teachers who had some anxiety. Many of them have personal experiences with COVID-19,” said SJTA President Patrick Bernhardt. Vanessa Mincey and her three children came...
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – An innovative effort to support Dallas ISD students after the school day ends has had to pivot in the face of COVID-19. For At Last! that means providing even more services. “What Covid-19 has done, it has expanded the home life portion of the school day,” says At Last! Founder & CEO Randy Bowman. “Now, for those who are choosing remote learning, the home life day is 24 hours.That’s been a fairly big shift.” It’s a big shift and a new challenge for At Last! billed as an “urban boarding experience.” Launching with grades 3 and 4, selected students attend their neighborhood schools, but live on the At Last! campus during the week. Evenings are filled with tutoring, life skills, learning support, free time, regular meals and bedtimes. “Stability,” reiterates Bowman, “and really resources. It’s the kind of resources that people truly take for granted, when it’s...
    A Yale University student has launched a federal class action lawsuit demanding that the famed Ivy League school reimburse some of his tuition payments because it shuttered its campus due to the coronavirus. Arguing that he shouldn’t have to pay in full for an online education, Jonathan Michel, of Ohio, filed the case in New Haven federal court on July 29. “Defendant is attempting to replace the irreplaceable – on-campus life at an elite university – with ‘virtual learning’ via online classes, and is attempting to pass off this substitute educational experience as the same as or just as good as fully participation in the university’s academic life,” the case states. Similar suits have been filed against major universities across the country after they locked up their campuses due to the COVID-19 crisis, but kept tuition structures largely intact. The suit notes that Yale has an endowment of $30 billion...
    Eleven Rangers made their postseason debuts while getting swept by the Hurricanes. Any positive experience to come from it will have to be taken after the disappointment begins to wear away. “As I sit here right now, I don’t view this as a good experience in any way, shape or form,” coach David Quinn said after Tuesday’s 4-1 loss in Game 3 ended the series. “Maybe when the dust settles and the emotions subside, you look back at this season and the last two or three weeks we’ve been together and think we continued to move forward as an organization. But that’s certainly not how I feel today.” The playoffs may not have been the top focus of the franchise heading into the season last October, but once the Rangers got that chance — with some help from their young players developing along the way — they arrived in Toronto...
    EXCLUSIVE: "90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way" cast member Brittany Banks considered her trip to Jordan to meet Yazan Abo Horira's family a success despite it starting off rocky.When Banks first arrived, Horira scolded her for hugging the camera crew and bringing alcohol with her, which made the American doubt their relationship could work. “Of course I respect his culture and his choices but at the same time I am not Muslim,” she said on the TLC reality TV series. “It reminded me of the way my ex behaves and so if he’s going to behave like my ex then I don’t want anything to do with him.” '90 DAY FIANCE' COUPLE TANIA AND SYNGIN ON HOW MARRIAGE COUNSELING HAS HELPED THEM Brittany Banks (L) and Yazan Abo Horira (R) (TLC) Banks, 26, told Fox News that traveling to the conservative Middle Eastern country was "different."

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — After a frightening encounter, she didn’t let fear shut her down. Instead, a local woman is fighting back and creating a space for other moms and daughters do the same. It may not be your typical mother-daughter day out, but some families are aiming to change that. Rachel Dayoub came up with the concept for Whispering Force after a close call at a local department store when she noticed two men following her. “I don’t know. As a woman, I didn’t want to feel like a drama queen,” Dayoub said. “So I thought, just go home. This is not a big deal. They’re just being creepy. I didn’t think danger. You have to listen to your instincts and I did not.” The stalkers were waiting for her in the parking lot. Thankfully, she got away, notified police and later took to social media. “I said, ‘Who wants...
    DENVER (CBS4) – Leaders for two major school districts in Colorado discussed how they’re preparing for the academic year beginning in the fall during the pandemic with learning taking place at least in part virtually. The superintendents for Denver and Aurora Public Schools districts were part of a webinar hosted by the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce Monday to give the community an update. “I think that will be an incredibly important tool for us to be able to take a science-based approach to make sure that the conditions are safe,” Susana Cordova, superintendent of Denver Public Schools, told the Zoom conference call. DPS transitioned to virtual learning in March after an extended spring break. Cordova says they were able to provide 55,000 Chromebooks to students and help families get access to better internet connections at home. She hopes that advancement will improve the experience in the fall. She also...
    Did you know that Chandrachur Singh almost played the role of Aman in the iconic romantic film, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai? The revelation was first made by director Karan Johar on his appearance on Zee TV’s talk show, Yaaron Ki Baaraat. The filmmaker said that he approached the actor who turned down the role even before the narration. The monumentally popular supporting role was played by Salman Khan in the movie, eventually. Now, Chandrachur Singh is making a comeback in the showbiz with the web-series, Aarya, where he stars alongside Sushmita Sen. In an interaction with DNA, the actor was asked about the time he turned down Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. “It was my loss that’s all I can say.

    Dilbert creator Scott Adams explained why the idea of an autonomous zone currently being tried out in downtown Seattle “inspired” him. Appearing on Friday night’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to comment on the so-called Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), where activists have declared their own policeless territory, Adams told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that he has turned his “house into an autonomous zone.” But, as it turns out, he’s already “having problems.” WATCH: “I’m running out of food and the U.N. wouldn’t accept me unless I denounce Israel and change my name from Scotland – apparently that’s taken,” Adams joked before explaining that he’s actually “quite interested in their experiment.” “In all seriousness, I am completely in favor of them trying this out because it’s going to be the world’s greatest learning experience,” he said. “The first thing they learned is hey, I think we need some kind of...
