Universities May Continue Online Until 2021 Due To COVID-19

CNN reports that, many universities are considering the fact that in-person classes will not resume until 2021.

Schools such as Boston University have already cancelled all face-to-face classes and summer activities in the wake of COVID-19. Online classes will remain and limited housing and dining services will be available.

The main goal was for classes to reopen in the fall but, per an online statement, the university is preparing for the unlikeliness of that happening.

“The Recovery Plan recognizes that if, in the unlikely event that public health officials deem it unsafe to open in the fall of 2020, then the University’s contingency plan envisions the need to consider a later in-person return, perhaps in January 2021,” the university said.

President Robert A. Brown is hoping for students to return in the fall as a best case scenario and is focused on finding the best safest ways to do so. Other schools such as Harvard are taking similar precautions. President Lawrence S. Bacow stated that their campus is contemplating “lots of different scenarios” for the fall semester.

Alongside Harvard, Oregon State’s spokesman Steve Clark told The Oreganian in regards to the fall semester, “Only the novel coronavirus will determine what happens. We can hope for a full return in fall 2020, but hope is not a strategy. So that is why we are going to prepare as best we can for every possible contingency.”

The University of Arizona is also remaining hopeful for a return to campus for the fall semester. The university delivered a statement to the Arizona Daily Star saying, “We are cautiously optimistic that the fall semester will be able to launch with the normal face-to-face campus experience, but of course we will prioritize the health and well-being of our community in making that decision.”

In recent interview rap legend Lil Wayne Revisits Signing Nicki Minaj & Drake

Those Young Money Cash Money golden years are untouchable and fans remember when you couldn’t go anywhere without being confronted with yet another YMCMB hit. Weezy recently sat down with the I Am Athlete podcast and spoke at end about his love of music and why it’s important for Rap veterans to welcome new talent with open arms.

“You can’t be the person that’s saying, I don’t like the new music. You gotta love it,” he said. “Learn it, like it, and love it, because you better understand, that’s music. That’s not a certain type of music, that’s music. You got to Apple Music and Top 100s and [it’s] them folks right there.”

“Then you got a Drake. He’s music. My goal now, if you want to be the ultimate artist, that’s what I want to be,” Wayne added before giving insight into why he decided to add Nicki and Drake’s talents to his roster.

“It was just about…I seen potential. That’s when I saw way more than just potential. When Drake’s music was brought to me from the homie [Jas Prince], it was about Rap,” he said. “I was like, ‘This dude sound different.’ What I loved about him, he was sounding just as dope as we were. When I say we, I’m talking about the streets and what we came from.”

Weezy said he told Drake that he could make anything sound “dope,” but Wayne was even more impressed when he heard Drake belting out a hook.

“One day, I heard, ‘[him singing].’ Like, ‘What the f*ck was that?’” he added. “You gotta be the ultimate artist. My homie could do two nights when he hits your city.” you can Watch Lil Wayne on I Am Athlete below.

Rapper Drake and Kodak Black seem to be getting along smoothly. So much so that the superstar recently gave him a gift of a good amount of Bitcoin.

Kodak recently called into the Breakfast Club to chat with DJ envy, Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee about his hit ‘Super Gremlin‘, getting shot recently, his upcoming project Back for Everything dropping this Friday, relationship with Donald Trump, cutting his hair, and his friendship with Drake.

Kodak says Drizzy randomly hit me one day and said “You got bitcoin?” to which the Florida rapper replied in the negative. “I was like ‘nah.’ He was like ‘Set up a bitcoin then.’ So you know, I’m like, ok, you know what I’m sayin’?” From there, Yak says Drizzy sent me about 6.6 BTC which made his wallet value over $300k. Lucky him.
