Lee Cataluna: 10 Lessons We Should Have Learned From The Pandemic

When the pandemic is over (because at some point, one way or another, it will be over, even though it may not feel that way, reeling as we are from the false ending we experienced this summer) we will have the benefit of 20/20 hindsight with which to analyze each decision and action taken during this terrible time.

However, we’ve been in this so long already, the equivalent of two-thirds of a three-act movie, and are at a point where there are lessons to glean from what we’ve been through, and mostly, from what didn’t work or didn’t matter. For example:

1. Washing your hands and singing Happy Birthday was pathetic. Remember when it seemed like hand sanitizer and vigorous hand scrubbing was going to save us? We were so naïve then. We had no inkling that the airborne virus didn’t rely on dirty hands. Hand washing without masks, social

State looks at college enrollment goals for high school students

The Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) met Aug. 23 to discuss legislative proposals to meet the state’s goals of getting 70% of Washington to have some form of post-secondary education.

The proposals are looking to address some of the barriers that inhibit Washingtonians from seeking higher education through a four-year, two-year or technical program. The legislation particularly targeted low-income students and students of color, who have been most heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“An issue I hear over and over again is why Washington, with everything it has going for it, has a college going rate that is ten points below the national average,” said Michael Meotti, executive director of the WSAC. “Year after year, we see a decline in adults enrolling, particularly in community and technical colleges. This is trying to get at that issue.”

According to the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems, 53% of

How the metaverse moved from science fiction to reality

The metaverse is a network of always-on virtual environments in which many people can interact with one another and digital objects while operating virtual representations – or avatars – of themselves.


Think of a combination of immersive virtual reality, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game and the web.

The metaverse is a concept from science fiction that many people in the technology industry envision as the successor to today’s internet. It’s only a vision at this point, but technology companies like Facebook are aiming to make it the setting for many online activities, including work, play, studying and shopping.

Metaverse is a portmanteau of meta, meaning transcendent, and verse, from universe. Sci-fi novelist Neal Stephenson coined the term in his 1992 novel “Snow Crash” to describe the virtual world in which the protagonist, Hiro Protagonist, socializes, shops and vanquishes real-world enemies through his avatar. The concept predates
