Harvard’s Office of International Education announced Friday morning that it would cancel study abroad programming for the Spring 2021 semester.

The decision comes in light of continued concerns over student health and safety, persistent travel restrictions, and countries’ evolving entry requirements due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Virtual study abroad programming will not be available as “for-credit options” for Harvard College students, OIE’s notice added.

However, the announcement does not apply to homebound international students enrolled in their local universities.

Camila L. Nardozzi, director of the OIE, called Friday’s decision “excruciatingly disappointing.”

“We’ve been watching the public health situation for months and months, since the start of all of this,” Nardozzi said. “Unfortunately, things worldwide haven’t progressed in the way that I think, globally, we would have hoped they would.”

Nardozzi said her office’s decision came as a result of extensive discussions with Harvard’s Office of Global Support Services, Provost Alan

Shelburne’s local 164 Royal Canadian Air Cadets Squadron has launched a website and is now offering their program virtually for the remainder of 2020.

“We hope the website will help other families in our community learn about what a great program the cadets is,” said 164 Commanding Officer, Captain Ruth Garwood.

The website, which is directed specifically to the 164 Air Cadets, has been developed over the last six months and looks to inform cadets, their families, and community members about the program. The site, as it expands, will include pictures, upcoming activities, and 164 Air Cadets apparel.

MORRISBURG – Area residents may have one less outdoor recreation space this fall as it is uncertain if the Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary will open.

Access to the bird sanctuary has been closed since the COVID-19 pandemic began. The St. Lawrence Parks Commission, which owns the 9,000 hectare preserve, did not open the bird sanctuary this spring or summer citing safety issues on some of the boardwalk areas of the trails.

At that time, the SLPC said that there was damage caused by spring flooding.

“The Parks of the St. Lawrence team is currently assessing the trails at the UCMBS to determine if they are in safe condition to open to the public this fall,” said SLPC spokesperson Krista Doyle. “At this time, the boardwalk remains unusable.”

In addition to the boardwalk issues, Doyle explained that a partial reopening of the trails so far has not occurred due to

The job market may have taken a sharp right turn in the past few months, but even amidst all the changes happening in the workforce, one thing remains constant: Coding is a lucrative and in-demand skill. 

Programmers can command hefty six-figure salaries some even as starting salaries and the demand for these roles has increased quite dramatically in the past year, with growth for positions such as blockchain engineers and security engineers rising over 100%. The moral of the story here is that even if you have yet to touch a line of code, now is as good of a time as any to bust into the industry. 

As a starting point, we’d recommend taking the classes in The 2020 Premium Learn To Code Certification Bundle. Not only is this go-at-your-own-pace coding
