'Trust no one,' Sarah Palin advises new Democratic VP nominee Kamala Harris
Sarah Palin, the second woman ever to hold the vice-presidential nomination, has some advice for Kamala Harris, who Joe Biden tapped on Tuesday as his running mate in the 2020 election. Namely, “fight mightily”, “trust no one new” and “don’t get muzzled.” Palin, who ran beside John McCain in the 2008 election, congratulated the Democrat from California, telling her to “climb upon Geraldine Ferraro’s and my shoulders” and take in the lessons she learned during her campaign. Ferraro, in 1984, became the first Italian-American and woman to be selected as the VP nominee, alongside Walter Mondale. In an Instagram post Tuesday, the former Alaskan governor shared her words of wisdom with Harris. Palin’s top piece of advice cautioned Harris to keep her guard up around new people and to keep her team close. “They know you, know your voice, and most importantly are trustworthy.” View this post on Instagram Congrats to the democrat VP pick

B.C. Pushes Back School Start Date For More Gradual Return
VICTORIA — Students in British Columbia won’t head back to classrooms on the originally planned date of Sept. 8 as the provincial government looks to a more gradual return.Children will be welcomed back to class later in the second week of September after staff reviewed the latest BC Centre for Disease Control guidelines and school operation policies for COVID-19, Education Minister Rob Fleming said Tuesday.“Having the restart week staged in some kind of manner that would have staff teams together for a couple days before we gradually welcome kids back to make sure that every school — all 1,500 of them in the province — are truly ready to welcome students is a good idea, and that’s the approach that we’ll be taking,” he said.No official date has been set for children to return to schools.Fleming said the government and its steering committee are working to finalize how school operations will work.He said he expects operating guidelines for schools to be released next week.RELATED Back-To-School In The Pandemic: How Does Your Province Stack Up? Homeschooling Got A Bad Rap This Year. For Some Kids, It's A Lifesaver 5 Signs Your Kid Is Anxious About Going Back To School Toronto Public Health Takes Aim At Ontario’s Back-To-School Plan How To Get Kids To Keep Their Face Masks On In the past, students going back to class would return to their previous classrooms before moving to new ones, but Fleming said that isn’t safe now.“That obviously can’t happen under these pandemic conditions.”The government is spending $45.6 million on safety measures, including increased cleaning of high-contact surfaces, an increased number of hand-hygiene stations and boosting the availability of masks.Students will be organized into learning groups to reduce the number of people they come in contact with, cutting the risk of transmitting the novel coronavirus.Children in elementary and middle schools will have their learning groups capped at 60, while students in secondary schools will have a cap of 120.School administrators are currently looking at, or have started, changing the physical layout of classrooms and common areas to help students ensure social distancing is maintained, Fleming added.The change in the start date comes after concerns were raised by the BC Teachers’ Federation and the BC Principals’ and Vice-Principals’ Association last week.The federation called for more time to work on the return to school plan while the association for school administrators asked the government to consider a flexible classroom start date, depending on the readiness of each school.Watch: B.C. Premier John Horgan has a message for young people. Story continues below. Teri Mooring, president of the teachers’ federation, said she’s still looking for more details from the provincial government.“The plans are still underway but there aren’t enough details and information right now for folks,” she said. “It’s understandable that there’s a high level of concern and stress about what it’ll look like in schools in September.”Mooring emphasized that the safety of staff and students is the top priority. The announcement of a phased-in approach to returning to classrooms comes as Health Minister Adrian Dix and provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said in a joint statement on Tuesday that community transmission of COVID-19 affects schools.“As we look to fall, what we’ve learned from other jurisdictions is that transmission in a school setting is a reflection of what’s happening in our communities; keeping our community transmission low and slow keeps us all safe.“And behind the scenes, public health is using contact tracing to mitigate the new growth in cases.”There were 46 new cases in the province on Tuesday for a total of 4,111.This report was first published by The Canadian Press on Aug. 11, 2020.
