When the new school year begins Tuesday in the Santa Clarita Valley, classes will be taught online, but Brady and Jennifer Burrill will not be working from home.

Burrill, who serves as an assistant baseball coach at Valencia West Ranch High, plans to teach Advanced Placement calculus from his classroom. His wife will teach Advanced Placement statistics from her classroom at Valencia High. Both said staying home is not an option with children ages 5 and 9.

“Functionally for us, there’s no way,” Brady said. “Our 5-year-old is starting kindergarten. She will want her mom and dad to help with everything all the time. My wife and I are passionate about teaching and pretty loud when we talk. All

Our Favorite Online Haunts For Scoring Affordable Art

It’s the year 2003: you’ve just settled in for an evening spent chatting on AIM while listening to a newly-burnt CD and the space surrounding you is drenched in pop-culture paraphernalia. Back in our teenage heyday, bedrooms were a private sanctuary where no wall was left uncovered by Titanic-era Leonardo DiCaprio posters and artwork from Destiny’s Child Survivor album. And while we’ve undergone more than a few changes since then, our walls are still prime real estate for personal expression — only now we’re filling them with a little less hormonally-charged angst and a lot more artistic vision.

House plants breathe life into your home and nifty storage sets can keep it looking streamlined, but investing in wall art is what will really make a place feel like your own. Whether you’re renting a first apartment with roomies or you’re solo settled in more permanent digs, giving your living

Everything you need to create a movie is right in your pocket. Yup, we’re talking about your smartphone. Considering how today’s devices boast complex photography capabilities, it’s not surprising that there is a growing list of films that are partly or entirely shot on phones.

Just take Searching for Sugar Man, for example. Directed by Malik Bendjelloul, it’s a documentary that clinched an Oscar despite being filmed using an 8mm camera and an iPhone app. If all these hotshot filmmakers can do it, why can’t you?

But filming footage and editing it are entirely different processes. It may be easy to shoot, but stringing together your clips to create a masterpiece is much more

New Britain students may take classes in-person, online or on a hybrid schedule

Parents of New Britain students will have the option this fall to keep their children home for all-online education, send them to school for traditional classes or try a mix of both.

In explaining the school district’s plan for teaching 10,000 students during the pandemic, Superintendent Nancy Sarra emphasized that parents will have choices.

One option that might help working parents and guardians is a hybrid system: They may design a schedule for their children to attend in person on certain days, and take classes virtually on the others.

If families choose in-person classes, they should prepare their children for a daily schedule very different than usual.

“All of our desk in the classrooms will be 3 feet apart, all students except for preschool must wear a mask and a face shield,” Sarra said in a recent online town hall for city parents.

Staff will maintain distance from students, kindergarten

How to Earn Money Online

The jobs available for people looking to make money online run the gamut. On the internet, you can seek everything from full-time employment as a remote staff member to a work-whenever-you-want side hustle as a blogger or jewelry-maker.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has rattled the job market, online hiring is strong in a range of industries. According to Glassdoor’s Job Market Report, there were 11,430 remote job openings in July on Glassdoor, up 28.3% from the year before.

“The fields with the most remote-work listings right now include areas like customer service, sales, computer and (information technology), medical and health, and education and training,” wrote Brie Weiler Reynolds, career development manager and coach at FlexJobs, a resource for finding remote jobs, part-time jobs, freelance jobs and other flexible jobs, in an email.

BU’s First Online MBA Cohort Twice The Size Of Initial Expectations

Questrom’s first online MBA program starts on Aug. 2 with 401 students

To get its inaugural class of online MBA students started next week, Boston University’s Questrom School of Business battled through a host of COVID disruptions that ranged from university budget cuts and hiring freezes and a key instructional designer coming down with coronavirus to a complete halt on the construction of its video studios and the loss of many university IT resources.

Yet, BU managed to overcome the unexpected obstacles to enroll the first class of 401 online MBA candidates, double its initial expectations of 200 students for its $24,000 virtual MBA. When they begin coursework on Aug. 2 in what is called “Mod Zero,” all the classes have been reimagined and completed with the exception of the ending capstone. Already, Questrom has 100 students confirmed for the program’s second cohort that starts in January.
