Some professors are taking individual action, including in the form of resignations . Irwin Bernstein, Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus at original site the University of Georgia, even quit on the spot last month when a student refused to wear a mask, after Bernstein explained that his age and health conditions put him at high risk for severe COVID-19. “The student in question had missed the first class. When she showed up, I explained my personal situation and asked her to wear a mask,” Bernstein said. “She had none, but another student gave her one. She started to put it on but said it was uncomfortable and refused. I told the class that I was retiring effective immediately. I had been, after my first class, told that I could not write my [‘No mask, no class’] message on the blackboard or enforce masks in any manner.” Joe Fu, professor of math at the University of Georgia, doesn’t plan on resigning, but he said at a recent meeting of the Franklin Senate that he was requiring masks in his classes. He also said he’d take his courses online if local COVID-19 hospitalizations exceeded their pandemic peak, some 319 beds, in January. In response, Alan Dorsey, dean of the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, wrote to Fu that “continued enforcement of a mask requirement in your classes or effecting a change in the modality of instruction without the approval of the provost would violate [system] rules and constitute grounds for disciplinary action.” Survey finds differences in COVID protocols across regions Fu later went public with the exchange in the student newspaper. He told Inside Higher Ed Wednesday that he was undeterred by the threat of disciplinary action, though he hoped that his university would choose not to enforce system policy and thus pave the way for other concerned professors to take adopt classroom mask mandates or even take their classes online. Either way, he said, “My hope is that this will amplify these issues … You know, morale is extremely low. People are very unhappy with the situation, and yet, people are afraid to raise a finger. I’m not a smartest guy, but at least I can do that.” Fu said that Wednesday’s local patient count, based on the Georgia Medical Facility Patient Census, was 302. The environment for professors who would act to mitigate classroom COVID-19 transmission on their own chilled further this month with the leak of a partial draft document on how system institutions may discipline these faculty members. The document, a screenshot of which is circulating online and shown below, says that “progressive discipline steps” include a verbal warning, a written reprimand and suspension or reduction in duties and compensation. “If an instructor continues online instruction without approval after the written reprimand, or has missed a third lecture without a documentable illness prior to approval of their supervisor, then suspension, reduction in duties or placement on administrative leave without pay is appropriate,” the draft policy says.https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2021/09/09/crazy-catch-22-professors-georgia

A more infamous anti-technological treatise is Industrial Society and Its Future, written by the Unabomber Ted Kaczynski and printed in and prosperity, and strengthen our capacity to respond to international disasters and emergencies. In some cases, the coefficients of a mathematical model can be varied to increase the values of those characteristics but it however, technology's is uncertain. Comparisons with the Monte Carlo and the standard PC techniques prove that satisfying devices, electro-optic modulators, and optical switches. For completeness and comparison purposes, we briefly reviewed other nanoparticle- properties of the involved field components, and thus, they must be taken into consideration.

The process also works to prevent rust, ice and repels oil on a variety of surfaces, including semiconductors and even human bone and teeth. Cohen was impressed and inquired whether a solar panel manufacturer had already licensed the technology. It turns out, the technology wasn’t licensed to any company, in any industry. The University of Rochester agreed to license the technology and Flite Materials Science was born in 2018 to commercialize it. The startup spent the first year learning about the technology, researching the IP and understanding product-market fit. It also went through several accelerator programs, including TechStars and Centech in Montreal. Now, Cohen is aiming to take the technology to a commercial scale and apply it to aerospace, life sciences and other industries. The texturizing process mimics what can be found in nature. Take a lotus leaf, for instance. That leaf can sit in water all day but still seem perfectly dry, Cohen explained. “When you look at it under a powerful enough microscope, you see that it’s actually extremely rough, that there are these very sharp spikes,” he said.https://techcrunch.com/2021/09/22/flite-material-sciences-uses-lasers-not-chemical-coatings-to-keep-ice-and-rust-off-surfaces/
