G.I. Joe is an American media franchise and a line of action figures owned and produced by the toy company Hasbro.   The initial product offering represented four of the branches of the U.S. armed forces with the Action Soldier (U.S. Army), Action Sailor (U.S. Navy), Action Pilot (U.S. Air Force), Action Marine (U.S. Marine Corps) and later on, the Action Nurse. The name is derived from the usage of "G.I. Joe" for the generic U.S. soldier, itself derived from the more general term "G.I.".    The development of G.I. Joe led to the coining of the term "action figure". G.I. Joe's appeal to children has made it an American icon among toys.

The G.I. Joe trademark has been used by Hasbro for several different toy lines, although only two have been successful. The original 12-inch (30 cm) line introduced on February 2, 1964, centered on realistic action figures.  In the United Kingdom, this line was licensed to Palitoy and known as Action Man. In 1982 the line was relaunched in a 3.75-inch (9.5 cm) scale complete with vehicles, playsets, and a complex background story involving an ongoing struggle between the G.I. Joe Team and the evil Cobra organization which seeks to take over the Free World through terrorism. As the American line evolved into the Real American Hero series, Action Man also changed, by using the same molds and being renamed as Action Force. Although the members of the G.I. Joe team are not superheroes, they all had expertise in areas such as martial arts, weapons, and explosives. 
G.I. Joe was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame at The Strong in Rochester, New York, in 2004 and into the Pop Culture Hall of Fame in 2017.
In Pandemus Veritas
One of the most interesting things about the pandemic is the questions it raises about the price of education. Can institutions reasonably expect to charge what they normally charge, given that the quality of an online education is substandard compared to student expectations?
Let’s start with the quality arguments. There is an argument that the quality of an online experience can match a face-to-face one. And that’s true – provided instructors have the time, money and inclination to build online classes and that the students are really only focussed on mastering course-specific content. But most instructors and institutions don’t have time for more than a quickly assembled online courses between now and the fall, and the vast majority of students want a lot more than course content from their post-secondary experience. So, this is a nonstarter. Yes, online education works for some students, some of the time, but where undergraduate education and experience is concerned, it is a sub-optimal approach for most students, most of the time.
But where does that leave us with respect to pricing? There are two basic approaches to this. The first is a “just price theory”, embraced by most students and their parents. In effect: one should not charge regular prices for a substitute good, which is mostly inferior. The other is an “institutional solvency perspective”: institutionalcosts at legacy universities aren’t reduced that much by going online, so giving students much of a break on tuition will tend to reduce ongoing quality and the ability to recover from the crisis.
(Some of you may question this, but it’s true: some maintenance costs get reduced, sure. Travel budgets go out the window. And some the costs of certain services (e.g. athletics) and goods (e.g book stores, food services) are mostly eliminated, but those were paid for either commercially or through a separate fee. However, you’re still paying your profs and the vast majority of the support staff. And there are the extra one-time costs of bulking up IT and instructional development services to deal with next term. A new online university might indeed be cheaper, but a legacy university sees only fairly small cost reductions in the short term.)
How this plays out politically depends a bit on how much you pay for tuition to begin with and what kind of government support exists for students. So, in Quebec and Newfoundland, where tuition is low and there is a lot of government support for students (through federal/provincial student aid, CESB, etc.), you probably won’t hear too much complaining. It’s trickier where institutions are more fee-dependent, as in Ontario, or at public American institutions. And it’s a lot different where students are paying full price or something close to it: say, private universities in the US, out-of-state students at US public universities, or international students in Canada.
In the US, I would argue that the debate is complicated by what I call the “revenge of the MOOCs” (remember them?). Back almost a decade ago, many were claiming that MOOCs would sweep away traditional institutions in a tsunami of change because, hey, so much cheaper! Basically, higher education was too costly because it “bundled” too many services and MOOC would help to “unbundle” them, thus making higher education cheaper, undercutting existing producers and allowing mass disruption and bankruptcy of existing institutions. This was always a preposterous argument partly because of regulatory issues and partly because higher education is a Veblen good, but mostly because “courses” are only a tiny part of what students are paying for when they pay tuition and the last damn thing most of them want is for all of this to be unbundled. Bundling is in fact the whole point!
But now of course the tech-bro types seem to think they are having their revenge. Due to the pandemic, universities now can’t bundle their services, so all those arguments deployed against MOOCs eight years ago? Useless. Now, people like Scott Galloway are saying to the expensive private universities that you’re definitely going to go bankrupt and be replaced by God-knows what kind of stripped-down online system. At one level, he has a point: you can’t read private colleges’ justifications for high pricing from a few years ago without thinking “how do these people have the gall to charge full price, now?”
But I think at the end of the day, three things are going to be decisive in terms of pricing.
First, you need to account for the human capital perspective. And on this basis, the cost of a year in higher education has already dropped substantially, simply because massive unemployment means that the opportunity cost of higher education has dropped substantially. For anyone paying less than around $10K in annual fees, that’s a non-negligible consideration.
Second, you need to remember that, to some extent at least, students are not purchasing skills but credentials. Even if the teaching/learning experience is sub-standard, the credits are still worth the same amount. And to the extent that credentialing is why students go to institutions – particularly high prestige ones – institutions are going to be able to keep their pricing power, in the short term at least.
And third: this is temporary. As long as we can believe that this experience is a year or less, and we still all want to go back to the old system, we can’t starve our schools. In the absence of some sort of massive government bail-out, there simply isn’t a way to provide even remote education at a loss without making the return to face-to-face education worse. And at a basic level, I think most people understand that. Charging regular rates – or something close to it – isn’t “fair”, but then nothing about this pandemic is “fair”. Institutions are doing what they need to do to make sure they are still able to function in the After Times.
The pandemic is very good at making us think about what is important. And the pricing debate, I think, tells us something important about higher education. Prestige matters. Credentials matter. And in the short term, we can put up with a lot of sub-standard experiences, as long as those two things are preserved.

We dined at Major Fulkinson's 12 miles from Abingdon. The countryside we passed through was one great forest with a few bogs and almost no houses. The major has a handsome property of 150 acres that he cleared himself. He has been settled there for 24 years. There is a copious spring near the house. He is 8 miles from the main branch of the Holston River. There is a shorter road that starts up at Captain Craig's. On a further 450 acres Fulkinson thinks he has a thousand sugar maples. This sugar is excellent. There are no others in this area, and they export very little. Everyone sees to his own supply. After dinner much forest again and few houses .

from The Gentry family in America: 1676 to 1909 by Richard Gentry
James Fulkerson came to America from Germany, settled first in North Carolina where he married Mary Van Hook and removed to Washington Co., Va. The first mention of him is found in an order of the Washington Co. Court held May 3, 1774:
On the petition of the inhabitants of Beaver Creek, ordered Benjamin Logan to open a road from James Fulkerson's to the wagon road at Joseph Black's (now Abingdon), the best and most convenient way.
There is still a small town named Fulkerson on the North Fork of the Holston about 20 miles southwest of Abingdon, Va.
In 1777 the court appointed John Anderson, Gilbert Christian, James Elliott, James Fulkerson and William Roberts commissioners to view a road from George Blackburn's by James Fulkerson's to the forks of the path leading to Kentucky and the mouth of Reedy Creek.
On the 22d March, 1780, James Fulkerson with several others were recommended to the Governor "as fit and proper persons to be added to the - Commission of Peace- of Washington Co.," and were commissioned.
The Army of Cornwallis was approaching from the southern border of North Carolina and threatening an invasion of Virginia, and the Washington Co. Militia were being called out under Colonel William Campbell and the Sharps and Fulkersons, relatives of the author, were enlisting in that pioneer army, which was soon to win the great victory of the Revolution, the battle of "King's Mountain."
James Fulkerson (called Valkerson in Germany) reared a large family in Virginia Peter, James, John, Thomas, Abraham, Jacob, Isaac, William, Polly, Catharine, Hannah (who became the wife of Benjamin Sharp), and Mary.
Peter married Margaret Craig and had ten children, of whom Robert C., Benjamin F. and Frederick settled in Montgomery Co., Mo. Colonel Samuel V. Fulkerson, killed before Richmond in 1862, and Colonel Abram Fulkerson, member of the 47th Congress, both Confederate officers, are descendants of James Fulkerson, the German immigrant.

On the scale of death
“They were stacked up in the cemetery and they couldn’t bury them. I was living on 31st Street. then. And that was a two-way street then, you know, and it’s one-way now. But people that died over this way had to be buried over this way and they used to have a funeral procession coming this way. And they used to be crossing. You had, they had to come to this bridge, coming one way or the other. And people would be there. And I would be laying in there and I says, I looked out the window and says, ‘There are two funeral processions. One going one way and one going the other way meeting like that.’ And that’s the way it was. There wasn’t a lot of comforts in those days. But it didn’t worry me. I was taking care of myself. What I mean, I wasn’t thinking about it. I wasn’t knowing whether I was going to die or what. I was just figuring it’s got me, and everything else is going on.”
— Clifford Adams, Philadelphia, 1984

A pandemic (from Greek πᾶν pan "all" and δῆμος demos "people") is an epidemic of disease that has spread across a large region for instance multiple continents, or worldwide. A widespread endemic disease that is stable in terms of how many people are getting sick from it is not a pandemic. Further, flu pandemics generally exclude recurrences of seasonal flu. Throughout history, there have been a number of pandemics, such as smallpox and tuberculosis. One of the most devastating pandemics was the Black Death, which killed an estimated 75–200 million people in the 14th century. The current pandemics are HIV/AIDS and Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Other recent pandemics include the 1918 influenza pandemic (Spanish flu) and the 2009 flu pandemic (H1N1).
