Reopening campus performance arts centers

As institutions develop plans to reactivate their campuses in meaningful ways, they must consider specialized academic units that require deliberate face-to-face and hands-on learning to accomplish proficiency in academic training. Performing arts disciplines, specifically theatrical arts, are highly specialized areas of study that have in-person needs for a large part of the curriculum. Without access to traditional forms of teaching and learning, there will be a significant impact on successful outcomes for these future practitioners.

The theater craft is learned through a variety of settings, from the classroom with an open floor space used for movement, acting, or stage combat classes, to the scenic, prop, paint, and costume shops; rehearsal halls; and even the theater itself outside of public performances. Live productions, which offer students the opportunity to hone their skills with true audience feedback, currently pose health risks for students and faculty.

Another Minority Health Disparity: Patient Matching

WASHINGTON — Here’s a health disparity laid bare by COVID-19 that you might not have expected: patient matching — identification and linking of one patient’s data within and across health systems — is worse for minorities and underserved groups.

A recent survey by OCHIN (formerly the Oregon Community Health Information Network), a national non-profit health information technology provider for 500 care delivery sites, found that:

  • Black patients make up 13% of OCHIN’s population and 21% of duplicate records, almost twice the expected rate
  • Hispanic/Latino patients make up 21% of the population that OCHIN serves, yet they make up 35% of the duplications, for almost twice the expected rate
  • 3% of OCHIN patients have experienced homelessness, but they account for 12% of mismatches and duplicates, or almost three times the expected rate

In addition, Black patients were 2.5 times more likely than non-Hispanic white patients to have a COVID-19 diagnosis in

Carole Baskin Reacts to Missing Husband’s Family’s Commercial

A positive spin. Carole Baskin hopes Don Lewis‘ family is able to find answers about his whereabouts after they aired a commercial during the premiere of Dancing With the Stars.

The animal rights activist, 59, made her ballroom debut on the ABC competition show on Monday, September 14, but was met with pushback from her former husband’s family. During the two-hour episode, an ad featuring Lewis’ daughters, Gale, Lynda and Donna, his attorney, John Phillips, and his former assistant, Anne McQueen, asked for help finding out more about the millionaire’s disappearance. The family offered a $100,000 reward for any information about the case.

Ocean Protocol Developers to Build Bridge between their Marketplace and Energy Web Decentralized Operating System

The developers of Ocean Protocol, which allows software engineers to build marketplaces and other apps to privately and securely publish, exchange, and consume data, will be creating a “bridge” between the Energy Web Decentralized Operating System (EW-DOS) and Ocean’s data marketplaces.

As mentioned in a release, customers, vendors, and grid operators will be able to send power telemetry data from distributed energy resources (DERs) to Ocean, allowing data monetization for users and Ocean marketplaces. Ocean’s artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms will be running various analytics programs, in order to identify or uncover energy generation and consumption patterns that can inform improved renewable energy grid integration and Internet of Things (IoT) device optimization for DERs.

Razvan Olteanu, COO at Ocean Protocol stated:

“We’re leveraging Ocean v3 Datatokens to tokenize power telemetry data from Energy Web devices, thereby creating an opportunity for these tokens to be used as

(SACRAMENTO, CA — Sept. 15, 2020) The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), NASA, the Desert Research Institute (DRI), and Google announced plans today to develop a new web application called OpenET to enable western U.S. farmers and water managers to accurately track water consumption by crops and other vegetation using data from satellites and weather stations.

OpenET will fill a critical information gap in water management in the West. Today, access to accurate, timely satellite-based data on the amount of water used to grow food is fragmented and often expensive, keeping it out of the hands of many farmers and decision-makers. Water supplies in the western U.S. are critical to the health of our communities, food supply
