UNR plans some in-person classes for spring 2021 classes

University of Nevada, Reno plans to offer some in-person classes for the spring semester, but those with 35 or more students will be taught online.

UNR President Brian Sandoval outlined the format for spring classes in two messages Thursday — one to faculty and staff and one to students. It comes after the university announced this month that all classes after Thanksgiving break will switch to remote instruction for the rest of the fall semester amid rising COVID-19 case numbers.

“The past two weeks have seen the University make major decisions that impact you, our students, in significant ways,” Sandoval wrote in the message to students. “In the short time I’ve been on campus, you’ve shown an incredible generosity of spirit. With so many major decisions of late, I want to reassure you that the University is also working to find safe, creative and meaningful ways to keep the life

One of the most important aspects of any workout, but especially weight lifting, is practicing good form for each exercise you do. But that can be difficult to master when you don’t have someone watching you and showing you what to do IRL. 

It’s always a good idea to work with a trainer in some capacity, at least at first, even if it’s on a video or Zoom chat, so you get a baseline of what to expect in your workout. But if that’s out of your price range, or you just want to get started now, let this be your guide.

Below, two certified trainers share the most common mistakes people make when they start out with weight lifting, plus their best tips to stay safe and get the

Republicans Weaponized White Motherhood To Get Amy Coney Barrett Confirmed

When President Donald Trump announced Amy Coney Barrett as his nominee for associate justice of the Supreme Court on Sept. 26, he praised her intellect, her credentials and her legal accomplishments. He also made sure to emphasize another part of her life: her role as a wife and a mother of seven. 

Amy is more than a stellar scholar and judge,” he said during the announcement in the White House Rose Garden. “She is also a profoundly devoted mother. Her family is a core part of who Amy is.”

Barrett also emphasized those aspects of herself, telling those gathered at the COVID-19 superspreader event, “While I am a judge, I’m better known back home as a room parent, carpool driver and birthday party planner. … Our children are my greatest joy, even though they deprive me of any reasonable amount of sleep.” 

On Monday night, against the vocal

Galaxy’s Chicharito must focus on soccer not off-field interests

Former Mexico striker Jared Borgetti has urged Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez to focus on what he has achieved on the field, with injuries and poor form overshadowing the 32-year-old LA Galaxy striker’s time in MLS so far.

Hernandez, who was brought from Sevilla last January to lead the club’s attack, has netted only once for the Galaxy over 10 games amid criticism from some quarters about the player’s off-field distractions.

“[Hernandez] has to remember that soccer is what got him to where he is and he has to re-plant that,” Borgetti said on ESPN. “He has to ask what has changed, what has he stopped doing so that they talk more about other things than what I do on the field.”

The Guadalajara native launched a YouTube show called “Naked Humans” along with his wife and housemates in June 2019 and is

5 Ways Holiday Shopping Will Be Different In 2020

Big sales, big crowds, big profits—holiday shopping is big business. Many stores typically depend on strong sales in Q4 to hit their annual goals and put them on a path towards future growth. 

But like nearly everything else in 2020, holiday shopping this year will be anything by typical. 

Fueled by changes in customer preferences and economic situations, as well as a global pandemic, holiday shopping will be quite different this year. Retailers need to make adjustments to best serve their customers and find success. 

Here are five ways holiday shopping will be different in 2020: 

1 . Shopping Will Start Earlier

Most years, the unofficial start of holiday shopping is Black Friday, but this year, it’s already begun in mid-October. Surveys have found that 3 in 10 shoppers will start their holiday shopping earlier than usual this year. 

Instead of waiting until stores are crowded in mid-December, shopping

My Twitter Addiction Got So Bad, I Had to Block Myself

Augustine points out—and this seems especially relevant to your dilemma—that the most insidious temptations are those that we cannot completely banish from our lives. We need food, of course, for our health and survival. But there is a fine line between nourishment and gluttony, and our weaker nature can exploit this ambiguity. In the face of these uncertain cases, “the wretched soul cheers up and marshals excuses in its own defense,” he writes. The internet is yet another gray zone where virtue bleeds seamlessly into vice. We need it to do our work, perform our duties, and stay informed, and it is all too easy to rationalize our addictive impulses with these more noble motivations.

But to return to the main question: What, ultimately, is the point of such struggles? For Augustine and Paul, temptation belonged to the moral drama of the Christian life; their trials were opportunities to grow
