and we can't access any of them." That frustration isn't limited to students at Ryerson. Nate Denaro, a student at York University, has calculated that even with a reduced fee, he'll spend about $270 this coming school year on athletics and recreation, saying the school's decision to not drop the fee altogether is "outrageous." Fifi Wei, set to start her first year at Sheridan College, was also surprised by what she saw when she looked at the fine print of her tuition. "I realized, 'Oh my god, they charge a lot of fees that actually aren't applicable for students who study at home,' she said, citing an on-campus health centre charge as an example. Wei wrote Sheridan, asking them to reconsider, but was told the fees are not optional. Petitions call for reduced tuitionAlmost as soon as the COVID-19 pandemic began and university classes began migrating online, students began lobbying for refunds and tuition and fee reductions. At Ryerson and other schools, online petitions have sprung up to ask university administrations to reconsider how much they charge. Julia Pereira, president of the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance (OUSA), says the frustration around fees and tuition in general reflect the deep economic uncertainty students are facing."We know that students have really struggled to find a job over the summer," she said. Pereira says student unions at the eight universities her organization represents have been trying to bring down fees to reflect that. For example, at her own school, Laurier University, Pereira says the student union has reduced clubs fees, while other universities have negotiated to remove the fee for bus passes. Pereira also says that OUSA has been trying to address the larger affordability problem by calling on the province to "enhance OSAP and give students more financial aid" as well as asking it to better fund universities so they don't need to rely on ancillary fees paid by students. Some schools reduce, cut feesFor their part, the post-secondary institutions contacted by CBC Toronto say they are sensitive to the economic difficulties their students are facing, and some are adjusting fees to reflect that.At Sheridan, for example, fees that support athletic facilities have been cut altogether. York and Ryerson stress that many services, like career and library services, are being moved online, so the fees must remain in place. Ryerson also says it's still exploring a mix of online and on-campus learning for students and that it's hopeful it will open its athletic facilities soon, given that Toronto has now entered Stage 3 of its reopening plan. The two universities told CBC Toronto that overall tuition can't be changed, saying virtual instruction costs the same amount and has the same outcome as in-person classes. Meanwhile, the burst of student lobbying to lower costs that began with the pandemic began appears to be winding down, says Jeffery. People feel "burnt out" after months of pushing, she said. Between paying for housing, finding jobs and trying to stay safe during a pandemic, young adults "have so much else to worry about," she said.For her part, McNaughton isn't hopeful that anything will change in the final weeks before school begins, but says she'll continue to advocate all the same. "I do think it's the university's responsibility to prepare for events like this.
And they shouldn't be asking students individually to pay for their maintenance when we can't use the campus.".

Big Finish is more than happy to do that sort of thing, though, and it’s been doing it since before the actual TV show was rebooted in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston as the ninth incarnation of The Doctor.
Now, speaking of, Big Finish has managed to do the impossible and lured Eccleston back to the TARDIS—which not even the 50th anniversary special from a few years ago could do, requiring the show to slot in a previously unmentioned Doctor played by John Hurt.
Eccleston’s run on the show only lasted one season (or “series” if you serve the Queen), with him explaining in recent years that he had a bad relationship with then-showrunner Russel T.Read More..

Hyundai announced Monday morning in South Korea that a new Ioniq brand will spawn an entire family of fully electric vehicles that will include production models based on the well-received Prophecy sport-sedan concept and retro-styled 45 EV concept. .
The start of the Ioniq brand “opens a new chapter as a leader in the area of electrified mobility,” according to a release accompanying the announcement. .
Although the rapid growth of Tesla and a corresponding surge in interest for fully electric vehicles in Europe, the U.S., and South Korea—where Tesla recently outsold Hyundai’s own electric cars—isn’t mentioned specifically, Hyundai all but spells it out: that the creation of the brand “is in response to fast-growing market demand and accelerates Hyundai’s plan to lead the global EV market.”.Read More..

One reason for these benefits to brain health is that maintaining strong social ties and cultivating satisfying relationships may help people to cope better with stress; people who feel better able to cope with difficulties or bounce back after a stressful event show less buildup of tau protein in their brains.
This is good news because, with the importance of social distancing for controlling the Covid-19 pandemic, how people manage their feelings and relationships is likely more important for brain health than the fact that they are spending time physically apart.

Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai has been arrested over suspected collusion with foreign forces under the new national security law, his top aide said on Twitter, in what is the highest-profile arrest yet under the legislation.
Lai has been one of the most prominent democracy activists in the Chinese-ruled city and an ardent critic of Beijing, which imposed the sweeping new law on Hong Kong on June 30, drawing condemnation from Western countries.
The new security law punishes anything China considers subversion, secession, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces with up to life in prison.Read More..
