Air Drop Harassed by Student

I was air drop harassed by a student yesterday during a class. It was not direct sexual harassment, but it was nonetheless harassment and a personal attack. Has anyone dealt with this before and what did you do? I pretty much know that I will not be supported by administration if I decide to do something official about it.

I also am now worried my info/data could be exposed. Apple assured me it can't be but I have read two articles that say it can be.

I advise everyone to turn off air drop and allow no one to air drop you randomly due to proximity etc. I was tricked into this because I assumed the student whose name popped up was sending work images. I usually do this via email. I will now turn air drop off on all my devices.

Trouble breathing with my mask while working and how to wear a mask with head straps

I have started teaching in person. Wearing n95 which are duck bill but which have head bands. They are much better for breathing but since covid and with my asthma I have more trouble even with these in the work setting. . I am using my inhaler before I go into the building but in one class I was very out of breath and bg was crashing too. . Any ideas on how to get through 3 months of this until I will then hopefully go back to online only?

The other issue is the headbands, I don’t like them, with glasses on a band, keys on a band it is very hard to do, they mess up your hair etc. So far I am putting one band over my ears under my hair and one at the base of my head. Another issue is glasses fogging up. Fortunately it is dry there mostly and it only happened once so far.

My second Pfizer vaccine today

I had it in the afternoon. So far I am having the same reaction as I had for the first, maybe a bit worse. Sore arm, myalgia, general fatigue and ick. The arm is a bit worse. I will see how tomorrow goes. I had a terrible period leading up to it where bg was very high for hours so that could be affecting my reaction as well. I had to inject, change out my pump cartridge and inset and increase basal rate to 200% when I got back as bg had spiked again after seeming like it would finally drop. I have no fever so far although it went to one point past normal which is high for me.

Overall I am relieved to be fully vaccinated now. 2 more weeks and I will have much better immunity. My brother finally got an appointment for his 1st vaccine but not until May. It was a lot more crowded this time, I had to wait on line at each point including getting into the whole center and then to see a nurse/ doc about being on a blood thinner and having autoimmune conditions. For some reason they seem to think I am going to bleed to death from a vaccine since I am on a blood thinner. I was a lot more internally crabby about the whole thing this time maybe due to not feeling well most likely. I think maybe I could have bypassed the nurse interview this time. I had some palpitations again, but this time before the vaccine due to high bg.

How to add my own photos to my id and signature?

I asked this a while back but I was never able to do it. A message said the image was too big even though it was tiny and the correct size, it was very blurred at some point when i made it smaller. I have never figured it out for the signature. There does not seem to be a way to upload images at all now for either one.

Opposition volunteers linked to Navalny attacked with unknown liquid in Siberia

Moscow (CNN)At least three volunteers linked to Russian opposition figure Alexey Navalny's team were taken ill on Tuesday after an attack on their Novosibirsk office with an unknown substance, an opposition activist told CNN.

Two men in tracksuits and wearing masks ran into the office of the opposition "Coalition Novosibirsk 2020" -- which is also the headquarters of Navalny's local team -- Olga Guseva, Navalny's team project manager in the Siberian city told CNN.
"One was holding the door, the other one with [screams of profanities] threw a bottle with a yellow liquid with a strong pungent chemical smell," Guseva told CNN.
