Boston - Colleges Move Classes Online As Coronavirus Spreads

"With college campuses shut down because of covert nineteen is continuing online WBZ's Ben Parker takes a look at the impact on some local colleges from small schools to large ones private colleges to state university classes are not happening on campuses these days but instead in an online world because of covert nineteen Westfield state university the school remains open while operating remotely we like to make sure everybody realizes that we are completely open for business in terms of not only serving our current students but recruiting new students for next year serving both undergraduate and graduate students he Diane Prue sank his provost and vice president of academic affairs at Westfield state they're moved to teaching online was pretty smooth so are moved to the online will promote format when it first took place I think everybody was a little bit shocked about how quickly we had to move but I have to say to you that at this point we are really pleased with how smoothly the transition has gone not to say it's perfect by any stretch but it has gone really well and I think for several reasons among those reasons having a lot of faculty already trained to teach through some version of it online format and some faculty needed a little extra support there were trainings and workshops at lasalle university a small private college in Newton Massachusetts resident Michael Alexander says their staff and faculty was already prepared to make the move to online learning now we have some advantages also university we've been DJ online for seventeen years both graduate and undergraduate levels we have a summer online program is going for eight or nine years and growing every year and it's been very successful law almost all of our full time faculty at all been trained on how to develop online courses transition to online remote ways of teaching and how to teach online and we extended spring break an extra week to bring the others up to speed a quick crash course including our our jumped up professors Alexander says though most students are off campus there are so well some who have stayed for a variety of reasons the weather right to require every single student leave her campus because some students just don't have a better place to talk and that would include international students students the home situation would not be conducive to teaching and learning people who don't have the technology to access the remote learning that loads that we turn to people who have jobs nearby and their employers still needed the work and so they they need to live here so they can attend the jumble to make money and to support their employers and so that there are any number of reasons why students would need to be here now we're down to just sixty two of them but still we have to feed them and take care of the we spread them out it will consolidated them into three residents all the great amount so everybody has their own room and their own bathroom but and they can't really teach others in the room they're practicing physical distance thing and we're monitoring that but that's an additional challenge Westfield state also has some students still on campus for some classes like biology chemistry and other sciences this lab work to be done that does pose some challenges at Westfield state proves access some classes have enough experimental work and now they can analyze data for others being away from the campus has actually been a bit of a benefit by not being there in some areas for example in environmental science you are now in different environments there are material they can collect and analyze right in their own backyards for example and do some comparison really when you think about our student population at Westfield state over sixty percent of our students are from eastern all the Worcester area that means we have to be all over the state so an environmental kind class they can now look at multiple environments in their discussions online as for where college might be in the future meeting this fall press access they're hopeful getting back to campus will be in the cards but they are planning just in case it's not we're doing a mixture of things right now and we're looking at the continuation of this semester for example a lot of our activities obviously have moved to virtual including things like virtual admissions events that we are running in the next few weeks for two students were to come to a Westfield state and all we're looking at some virtual kind of activities are only may or June orientation sessions for students and thinking about both kinds of activities for our early summer school courses both tend to be more online courses than on the ground in any case when we look at far as the fall which is double pay for some people may seem very far away but doesn't feel that way for us our plan right now Ben is to be fully functioning as a residential campus at that point we assume we will all be back on campus with our students will be in our housing area and so we continue to plan to register students in that way that's not to say that we're not thinking forward about the possibility that they may shift at some point we will of course follow whatever guidelines the governor provides for us in terms of gathering and so we'll think about different variation on what that might look like if there have to be some change in the way that we start our semester at lasalle university president Alexander says they're planning for multiple scenarios which run the gamut it's a totally unpredictable situation nobody knows anybody tell journalists should not sell so we have to prepare for multiple scenarios so we're forming scenario planning task for most other institutions are doing the same thing and and defining various things that could happen from a minor disruption in the fall to the real serious disruption in the fall which would be you know we still can use the campus for that call and and maybe some things in between and then develop a specific plan for each of those scenarios that we can put in place as as things develop or adjust to as things develop and although colleges would rather have the on campus learning resume as long as it hasn't thanks thanks despite the disruption this could be a learning experience that normally wouldn't exist I absolutely agree and that this experience is going to have a lasting impact on all of our students I have no doubt that that's the case I'm one of the things that we're trying to do through our classes and many of our faculty have talked about that because this transition happened so quickly because there's so much happening in the environment for students many of our faculty are having these conversations with students in their classes will guard lists of the subject they're teaching whether it's now whether it's social work whether it's of course in communication faculty all across our campus are having the conversation with our students because they're processing this at their living through it and I agree with you that it is going to really kind of changed the way our students and I think all of us will see the world and see our human connection to each other and so in this world of covert nineteen higher education does go on there are challenges but in some cases there's even more education I'm Dan Parker WBZ Boston news

US white supremacist propaganda incidents 'rose by 120% in 2019'

"There's a new report out on cases involving the distribution of white supremacists and the anti defamation league says that distribution is spiking according to an a DL report incidents of circulation of such propaganda materials jumped by more than one hundred twenty percent between twenty eighteen and twenty nineteen and follows a rise of more than one hundred eighty percent between twenty seventeen and eighteen WBZ's Ben Parker spoke with Robert Creston director of the a DL of New England about what they have found this seems to be a growing pattern we had a pretty decent jump between twenty seventeen twenty eighteen and now between twenty eighteen and last year another mark markedly big job well you know the twenty nineteen was really an explosive jump yeah here in Massachusetts we saw the numbers quadruple and no forty nine out of fifty states in the country have experience this type of hate you know infecting the public square what's causing this is there some researcher some information that kind of gives you pause as the Hey this is the reason why there are a couple of groups white supremacist groups that are primarily responsible for this and we know this because they typically take responsibility they like to brag about it and regrettably we have some of their members living amongst us in Massachusetts and in New England and they are you know they're they're taking orders from from their their their leaders and they're hitting the streets and you know doing whatever they can to normalize their hatred and and as we look and and clearly there are things that happened on the regular streets so to speak but this is a seemingly a growing problem on college and university campuses too that's right and they love to target college campuses and we saw a marked increase you know a little more than doubling in Massachusetts on campuses and we also we also saw them targeting campuses you know in New Hampshire and Rhode Island and Maine where in the past they actually never went near those campuses and what makes Boston a little bit vulnerable as we've got big universities often in the middle of the city so going up and down a public street and and putting flyers or taking a few steps off the street to put up a hate flyer makes it kind of easy to do it and you know in the middle of the night I mean I guess I wish you know and you wish it would be just as easy as just a stop this it's wrong it's bad and it would stop but obviously that's not the case what kind of I guess work do you guys do what other groups do to get all these campuses to explain to people why a why this is wrong change the minds and and of course to talk to people who are doing this of what they should do well we were fortunate that the campus leadership and leaders across our area are very quick to condemn the hate and to take down the flyers but I think it's really important for us as a community to have a really strong resolve that we have new zero tolerance for this kind of hate and we are not going to allow it to make us numb and we don't want to be normalized and that's one of the things that these groups are trying to do so for example much of these flyers and the propaganda they use the words they use kind of has a patriot patriotic slant and they they try and hide their hatred a little bit using pager patriotic language patriotic symbols in the same way that they they come out and two three o'clock in the morning and and do the for do the dissemination in the middle of the night they're also trying to to to hide some of their real motives and intent and we need to be aware that so that we can stand up against it when you talk about propaganda and obviously whether it's leaflets or flyers or posters I mean there is a a first amendment these are people who are vandalizing things although those have gone up as well what can be the is there a legal aspect for for stopping people from doing this well you know there are there are some you know legal questions that police and prosecutors certainly will deal with you know coming on to private property wouldn't perhaps when they've been previously told not to make make cross certain lines but you know the first amendment and free speech is a two way street and so people have a right to say how much they may hate someone or a particular group and as a community we have both the responsibility and also the same free speech rights to say that we don't want that kind of language or those beliefs as part of our community we're in a situation in this country now and you know we don't get deep into the political weeds on this but there's a lot of discourse of the Republicans the Democrats conservatives to you know liberals eccentric sector sector is this part or day are you finding that this political climate that we're in is fueling more of this well the political of the the tension in the political climate create some space for this and that's I think one of the reasons why they're very careful about the images and some of the language to kind of make it seem patriotic but you know when you look at the values of our community and even the values of our political system that are important to us as Americans this is not part of it and targeting people because of who they are or what they believe or what their face is what country they came from really is not part of the values of this community and so we need to shut it down WBZ's been Parker speaking with Robert Creston director of the a DL of New

SpaceX Launches 60 Starlink Satellites

"Once tonight in Florida a couple hours from now another space rock a lot of satellites WBZ's Ben Parker spoke with the CBS is Peter king about the first space launch of the year this was the late on Friday but they're going to try again tonight looks like the weather will cooperate for this SpaceX launch we have a ninety percent chance of favorable weather tonight at nine nineteen which is the optimum launch window it should be a really nice clear night that means those most out of the southeast have a good chance of seeing a spectacular display this is a space sex ed and then the company here with the falcon nine rockets in all of these these these satellites that are up in space like a lot of them up there put more up well they really do and and this is part of the this launch is part of their star link satellite internet system now they've already got a hundred twenty satellites up there so far sixty the more experimental sixty of them are operational the next sixty will go up tonight their operational but eventually we're talking about somewhere in the neighborhood of twelve thousand satellites in the constellation yeah this is to provide internet service to a lot of areas that don't have kids activity at a relatively low cost this service is not online yet but is expected to be a little bit later on this year but twelve thousand satellites that's an awful lot of amid SpaceX is talking about so for the neighborhood of fifteen losses this year for that project alone is anybody worried about a traffic jam in space with all those satellites eventually of orbiting I think you always have to be worried about a traffic jam in space the really good news is that the Air Force and NORAD keep track of that but that said of course you know more traffic up there means more possible space junk and that's the that's the problem keeps growing and growing and there is another concern a strong numbers are concerned that with all of the satellites up there and the old the satellites become the reflective properties of those satellites and sending light back down toward earth could make it tough for astronomers to do their job to scan the heavens so you know if there is that is well you know we've become so dependent on things that use satellites that I guess we're kind of we being the consumer are kind of responsible for all this if we didn't have so many gadgets and do dads and all the stuff that we need for with satellite communications maybe we'll need as many satellites well some would call it progress some would call it pollution and there are a lot of people who are on the fence one big SpaceX's doing tried mitigate this the terms of the light pollution if you will if they tried paving one of these satellites with a lower reflective coating see if that helps if it does the likely use that our future satellites to at least keep the astronomers happy and SpaceX's president not a lot much but when Shotwell quoted as saying lord astronomy is one of the things that get kids interested in space we don't want to screw that up I I one of the things that interest me Peter is they're launching like sixty satellites at a time if it wasn't in the old days we just sent up a satellite yes yes but you know what satellites get smaller more compact and lighter and it's not about volume as much as it as it is about weight it cost X. amount of dollars to send each pounded to space and if you can get more bang for the Buck you go for it and this is not by any means the first multiple satellite loss this video and on for years but again at the technology gets better the satellite so except for the huge defense satellite communications satellites a lot of the other satellites are getting smaller and smaller and smaller some the size of a shoebox of course were dealing with with launches of something that we you know we we didn't have the in the past and that's rockets that gotta come back down and the land here and we can use them again yeah reusability is a big part of the space X. model the more rocket stages they can land safely on the barge and re use the less money they have spent on building new ones the less money they have to charge their customers what else is a new in the world of space which would be looking for in the new decade we are awaiting another test of SpaceX's crew dragon spacecraft that spacecraft that would take astronauts to the international space station and other low earth orbit destinations or missions the in flight abort test that is to test the rocket system of the parachute should something ever goes wrong during a launch that even flight abort test is scheduled for this Saturday the eleventh it is a major milestone if it passes the test that helps clear the way for the first human logic we don't have any schedule on that but we know that SpaceX would like to launch sometime during the first quarter of the year we've got a lot of watches covered at this year's SpaceX alone is hoping to watch thirty rockets about half of that starlink series at about half for other communication satellites of the crew dragon let's WBZ's Ben Parker speaking with C.

But if it will say left in the mail mailroom, nobody was in there for a while it could've, you know, started smoldering catching other things, and you could have had a problem. So the other two devices was at Heathrow one was at city airport. And then the third one was at London's Waterloo train station and interestingly all flights were continuing all the train traffic continued as well during all this and the coordi- were very small.
