Maine Distillers, Brewers Team Up With University System To Produce Much-Needed Hand Sanitizer
It appears as though some Maine craft distillers and brewers have found a way to repurpose their industry of whiskey and beer making to create some much-needed germ-killing hand sanitizers with the help of the University of Maine.
What is typically served in a glass tumbler is being used in the process of making a hand sanitizer approved by the Food and Drug Administration. All that is needed is to separate the ethanol, one of two formulations for hand sanitizer, from everything else that makes the beer beer.
“Because St. Patrick’s Day was effectively canceled around the state, a lot of our brewers have a lot of supply of beer right now that they’re able to donate,” says Sean Sullivan of the Maine Brewers’ Guild. “At this point, we think have enough of a supply, but I think as we know, the demand for hand sanitizer is likely to increase.”

Kern County Superintendent of Schools Introduces Extended Distance Learning Plan
Kern County Superintendent of Schools recently chose Canvas as the district’s main tool. This new LMS is especially important as all schools in the district have moved or are moving toward distance learning education in the context of the current pandemic.
County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lisa Gilbert says that it was crucial to find an LMS platform “that would not intimidate, that would allow administrators and teachers to connect with their students to ensure continued learning for all.” This is what the district found in Canvas which they say can well support the work of all the teachers.
