While we navigate our way through education during a pandemic, it's not just the traditional schools and classrooms that are having to find new methods. For Mara Hall, coordinator of Western Iowa Tech's Lifelong Learning, having to social distance has meant not only revamping her catalogue but working one-on-one with her lifelong learners, often teaching them to connect through new media platforms such as Zoom. When they first arrive online to their classes, though, Mara sees them light up with happiness, not only for overcoming the tech obstacle, but for the rejoining of the community.

Members of Sioux City’s Oromo community carried signs saying “Oromo Lives Matter” today to bring attention to the violence against Oromo people in Ethiopia. Protestors there took to the streets following the killing of Hachalu Hundessa, a popular, political, Oromo singer.

Watch the latest updates on the coronavirus pandemic, including regular White House briefings.

We began planning this show last week, but, in these times, the amount of change from day-to-day is stunning, if not disorienting. Since then, we have seen school’s close; fitness centers, restaurants, bars, casinos are having to close or limit service; grocery stores are having difficulty keeping shelves stocked. It’s one of those moments when you feel the world is different from what you thought it was only days ago. One of our concerns is the disinformation surrounding COVID-19, and, hopefully, we can bring some balance back today with our table of experts.
