Liberty University Brings Back Its Students, and Coronavirus Fears, Too – The New York Times

Mr. Falwell echoes Mr. Trump’s talking points on the coronavirus, which he often calls the “flu.”

“It’s just strange to me how many are overreacting” to the pandemic, Mr. Falwell said on “Fox & Friends” on March 10. “It makes you wonder if there is a political reason for that. Impeachment didn’t work and the Mueller report didn’t work and Article 25 didn’t work, and so maybe now this is their next attempt to get Trump.”

Lynchburg is particularly ill-prepared to become a hot spot. Hospitals in the region have a total of 1,174 beds, only 55 of them intensive care, according to a recent analysis by the Harvard Global Health Institute. Those must serve 217,000 adults, nearly 50,000 of whom are 65 or older. Tests for the coronavirus remain in short supply.

Mr. Falwell has played down the dangers of his decision in interviews with the news media, where he has even suggested that the coronavirus is a North Korean bioweapon. On Fox News, he blithely asserted that the cure rate for Covid-19 “is 99.7 percent for people under 50,” adding, “We have talked to medical professionals, numerous medical professionals, before we made this decision.”

An archived version of Liberty’s website said those medical professionals included the school’s own public health faculty and campus health providers, as well as “Dr. Jeffrey Hyman of Northwell Health, New York’s largest health care provider.”

When contacted by The New York Times, Northwell Health denied that Dr. Hyman provided any formal guidance to Liberty, adding that he is not an infectious disease specialist. In a statement, the hospital system said that Dr. Hyman was a personal friend of the Falwell family, who told them in private conversation “that reconvening classes would be a ‘bad idea.’”

COVID-19 and uncertainty: Can we still do Exposure Therapy for OCD, by Jonathan Grayson, PhD

Topic Description:

For the first time in our lifetimes we are experiencing a world-wide pandemic that has disrupted the world. We don’t know exactly how or when it will end, but we do know there will be economic and mental consequences for almost everyone. In this environment, where we get conflicting advice of what we are to do to protect ourselves and loved ones, what kind of modifications can be made for the treatment of OCD? In this presentation, Dr. Grayson will discuss exposure with response prevention (ERP) in the age of the COVID-19 pandemic. He will cover doing exposure via tele-therapy, how to continue safely with contamination exposures, fear of harming others, health concerns about the coronavirus and other topics. There will be time for questions and answers on individual case issues and other pandemic related issues.

Professor researching Covid-19 was killed in an apparent murder-suicide, officials say – CNN

“Bing was on the verge of making very significant findings toward understanding the cellular mechanisms that underlie SARS-CoV-2 infection and the cellular basis of the following complications,” his colleagues at the university’s Department of Computational and Systems Biology said in a statement.
Members of the university’s School of Medicine describe their former colleague as an outstanding researcher and mentor, and have pledged to complete Liu’s research “in an effort to pay homage to his scientific excellence.”

Professor Ackbar Abbas – Posthumous Socialism

Professor Ackbar Abbas delivered a lecture on “Posthumous Socialism” on 23 October 2017, which was organized by the Department of Cultural Studies, Lingnan University, Hong Kong. This video was edited and produced by Global University for Sustainability, October 2017.

What is the Socialist Market Economy? Are we dealing with another phase of socialism? Or is China today capitalist in everything else but name alone? Or, even more paradoxically, are we dealing with neither the life nor death of socialism, but with its afterlife? With a posthumous socialism more than a post socialism?

Socialism in its posthumous form can have a vitality stronger than ever before. It is not a case of socialism being more alive than dead in China today, but a case of socialism being more alive when dead: just like a preserved building. A socialist past is not just succeeded and replaced by a capitalist present, but coexists with it, and we are forced to inhabit overlapping time frames.

Hence, anachronisms of a new and peculiar kind are everywhere. Anachronism does not mean being behind the times; rather, it is a sign of the times, a product of the speed of historical change. However, what we will see in the coming period is not just change in any familiar sense, but rather how change itself has changed.

Ackbar Abbas is internationally renowned for his writings on Hong Kong and China. His book, Hong Kong: Culture and the Politics of Disappearance (published in 1997 by University of Minnesota Press) is a path-breaking work in urban studies and cultural theory. His scholarship spans a range of cultural practices, from cinema to architecture to the visual arts. He has been writing on art and visual culture in China, and speaking at important international art events like the Sydney, Venice and Moscow Biennales on Asian art. Before moving to UCI in 2006, he was Professor of Comparative Literature at the University of Hong Kong. He is also currently Adjunct Professor, Department of Cultural Studies, Lingnan University.
