Teachers pay depends on education level (BA, MA, etc) AND length of service. After 10 years (or close to that), ALL teachers get the same. Sex (or lack of it LOL!) has nothing to do with pay. If you are a department head or part of administration then you get extra pay. If you are a teacher at a private school such as Shawnigan Lake then every teacher is paid a different amount depending on extra-curricular or house duties. The teacher actually meets with the Admin to work out their salary. Still, the sex of the teacher does not come into it.

While I appreciate you taking the time to answer this, the question was more geared towards a string of questions to show that a single number doesn't really answer much. :)

Copypaste.  Not mine. 

 

I'll add one:

 

If you think that the potential COVID vaccines will have a microchip that "they" will use to track you, while posting about this "conspiracy" on social media, you ARE a COVIDiot.

 

 

1. If you think the virus was manufactured in a lab, by global elitists for population control, you might be a covidiot.
2. If you think it’s “just the flu” despite contradictory evidence (literally everywhere) that proves otherwise, you might be a covidiot.
3. If you think the government mandating mask wearing is because they want to “control you” and not to protect vulnerable populations, you might be a covidiot.
4. If you think the current strain on the health care system is a lie, while failing to realize that people still need hospital beds for things like strokes and heart attacks and not just covid, you might be a covidiot.
5. If you think mask wearing violates your rights, not only might you be a covidiot, you may also want to leave the confines of your precious mind and do some research on places in the world where human rights are actually violated. Then take a seat because you might be a covidiot.
6. If you’ve ever typed the words “new world order” on your Facebook status because you believe that it’s true, you might be a covidiot.
7. If you think that the internet makes you smarter than the men and women who have dedicated their entire lives to the study of viral contagions because you read an article on some blog post somewhere, you might be a covidiot.
8. If you are unable to distinguish something you hypothesize to be true, against actual scientific facts and figures, you might be a covidiot.
9. If you think everyone is “overreacting because only old people or previously sick people die” there is no might be, you ARE a covidiot.
10. If you’re “not changing anything” because screw the government for trying to tell you what to do, you might be a covidiot.
11. If you think that acknowledging science to be true makes one a “kool-aid drinking sheep” look in the mirror and check, cause you might see a covidiot.

How is KoS not banned from this forum...literally just wants to argue with everything being posted. Time for a Mod to put that user on time out till 2021 no!?

I would like to argue with you about this......

 

One thing for sure that is hard to argue though is BC's rising covid rates....  very alarming.

Most alarming is how covid transmissions are spreading across all parts of the province now.

Covid test #2 in the books.  Gargle test, much less invasive than the brain scrape I had a few weeks ago.  The new airport drive through is very efficient....this time it was a 30 minute wait or so compared to the 2 hours I spent in line last time.  Well done to all those on the front lines collecting our spit....I certainly appreciate their willingness to do a job many others would be too fearful to.

 

Now the waiting/isolation begins....

738 cases today

 

And apparently they've "corrected" yesterday's numbers:

Quote

British Columbia reported 738 new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday and 13 new deaths.

It brings the province’s death toll to 371.

Officials also revised daily case totals from Nov. 16 to Nov. 24, owing to data reporting errors in the Fraser Health region.

The correction saw total case numbers increase on several days, but also saw Tuesday’s record-breaking 941 new cases revised down to 706. Full corrections will be available on the BC Centre for Disease Control’s COVID-19 dashboard in the coming days.

Based on the corrected numbers, we might actually be seeing some small improvements from a few days ago.  Would be nice to see that trend continue.  The numbers originally released yesterday were so disheartening.  

 

I'm so sick of seeing the video clips of people abusing employees of various establishments over having to wear a mask...why I didn't want to see a mandatory mask regulation imposed.  It brings out the worst in people and puts staff on the firing line for being abused, spit on, sworn at and no one should have to be subjected to that.  People can be so disgusting towards others.

I went to Carl's Jr up here the other day (actually went in because there were not a lot of people inside anyway), and I ended up a witness of someone refusing to wear a mask. I also have a friend who works with the public and keeps hearing people complain about having to wear a mask in Walmart.

 

I just don't understand how a simple concept can be so hard to understand for some people. This is a time where, yes, you should be in your own little world to avoid others but, at the same time, not be in your own little world and have your eyes open. lol

I will never understand the mindset of "me" vs "we".  We have a responsibility to help others, and right now we can easily do that by wearing masks, staying home as much as possible and social distancing.  None of those things are hard to do.  Although tbh I'm struggling a bit with the staying home piece as I'm also trying to support local business.  I have never bought anything on Amazon and never will.

The city of Phoenix is playing host to a soccer tournament over the weekend, which will include 500 teams and 800 kids....what could possibly go wrong? :picard:

A soccer tournament featuring hundreds of players is a go in Phoenix -- in spite of Covid-19 restrictions and the mayor's disapproval.

The Desert Super Cup is an annual youth soccer tournament taking place over Thanksgiving weekend. The games are being played as Covid-19 cases are on the rise in Phoenix.
This year's tournament is set to feature 460 out-of-state teams and 40 in-state teams.
"Absolutely fantastic news," said Phoenix City Council member Sal DiCiccio in a tweet. "The 800 kid soccer tournament will still be held in Phoenix this coming weekend. They are coming here because they had been banned everywhere else and we have amazing facilities. We welcome you and your families to our great city!"
Games are also being played Scottsdale and Mesa. The total number of players in the tournament could not be confirmed.
 
Technically, Arizona has banned public events with more than 50 people, but the state left some wiggle room, allowing local officials to bypass the law if they approve the event. The Phoenix City Council has the ability to call the tournament off, but has not done so -- though Mayor Kate Gallego has voiced her disapproval of the event.
"I am gravely concerned about COVID-19 in our community," Gallego said in a statement. "With infections now at the second highest daily number ever, it is clear the status quo is not working. We all need to be aware that the public health situation has changed dramatically in the last few weeks."

 

They should change the name to The Desert Super Spreader Cup....<_<

I'm just gonna outright say it.

 

If I see someone abusing an employee over mask usage....i'll give them a medical reason they can't wear one.


tired of it

Interestingly enough...I'm massive. I'm on your side. When I walk in the dust usually settles. 

 

I can't wait to drop hammers.

LifeLabs has announced a new antibody test for consumers. It costs $75. File / Global News
 

For British Columbians who have been feeling under the weather over the last few months but were never tested for COVID-19, there’s now a way to find out if they’ve had the novel coronavirus.

LifeLabs is offering an antibody, or serology, test for $75.

 

It cannot be used to diagnose current cases, but it is helpful for people who are simply curious to learn if they’ve previously had the virus.

 

It could also be for people who may be suffering from long-term side effects but weren’t diagnosed and aren’t sure, family physician Dr. Pete Henley noted.

I'm usually rather quiet and diplomatic,  prefer to use words over physicality, but I agree....if I were in a store where this was happening I don't think I'd be able to be diplomatic.  Enough of the BS.  Some people need to learn the hard way.
