Lamar Alexander: Tennessee students need to return in the Fall

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This week, I chaired a hearing in the Senate health committee with key administration officials and COVID-19 task force members to explore what federal, state and local governments need to do to get Americans back work and back to school. You can read more about that hearing below. 

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced Tennessee will receive more than $155 million to support COVID-19 Coronavirus testing and contact tracing across the state. Tennessee has done more testing than most states, but even more testing is key to ensuring folks are safe as they go back to work and back to school.

Austin Peay State University’s new Spanish Class tackles Vampires and Zombies

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – The last few years have been rough for Spain. The unemployment rate is close to 30 percent, which has led to daily protests and civil unrest in that European nation. For some scholars, this turmoil helps explain the sudden popularity of vampire and zombie literature in that country.

“Spain is in shambles,” Dr. Osvaldo Di Paolo, Austin Peay State University associate professor of Spanish, said. “From 2008, the world crisis has hit them hard. When you read a novel from Spain about a zombie apocalypse, it makes you feel like this is happening. You feel the same destruction of society in every aspect.”
