The Rural Domestic Preparedness Program is a US National government (taxpayer-debt) funded program. It is “supported by Cooperative Agreement Number EMW-2016-CA-0097, administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency, National Preparedness Directorate, National Training & Education Division”, according to the web site. Academic members include, the University of California Davis, North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC, as well as Eastern Kentucky University, Northwest Arkansas Community College (Bentonville), The University of Findlay, and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The address on the web site is 2292 S Hwy 27 Suite 300, Somerset, KY 42501. https://archive.md/W95lr
If you look on the map, it’s actually off the highway on Rural Development Drive, and is a new building next to a hotel and near a major bookstore, and Japanese car dealership. So, there’s nothing “rural” about it. They don’t need a class for this. Most Americans are so contrary that if you want them to quarantine then tell them to go outside.
The Rural Domestic Preparedness Program has a class called “MGT 433 ISOLATION & QUARANTINE FOR RURAL COMMUNITIES”, which is
“designed to provide the knowledge necessary to begin planning for situations requiring the isolation and quarantine (I&Q) of a large portion of a local, rural population”. It is for “public- and private-sector emergency managers, community policy makers, public health, and public safety personnel”. It’s supposed to give them “the general knowledge necessary to begin planning for situations requiring the isolation and quarantine of a large portion of a local, rural population”. The stated purpose is “minimizing the negative impacts to the community at risk”, and “minimizing the long-term negative economic and health effects on the American public as a whole. https://archive.md/0rBcz
Why don’t they isolate-quarantine-deport all illegal migrants, instead?
Along with NIH-NIAID funding, Peter Daszak-EcoHealth Alliance and the Wuhan lab also got USAID funding, via a UC Davis program run by J.K. Mazet: Between 2009-2019, USAID “PREDICT”, headed by JK Mazet at UC-Davis, gave $1.1 million to Wuhan Institute of Virology via Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance. NIAID funding to Wuhan Institute of Virology from FY 2014-2019 was $826,277. This, alone, totals $1,926,277. Why is no one calling out Mazet-UC Davis?https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2021/06/11/usaid-predict-nih-gave-1-9-million-to-the-wuhan-wiv-lab-through-daszak-ecohealth-alliance-daszak-talks-china-partners-work-on-killer-viruses-biden-admin-plans/
Republicans called out the USAID PREDICT program, but not UC Davis and PREDICT’s PI JK Mazet: “In a separate email, Daszak states that Linfa Wang (who did not sign the statement) pushed for Daszak and Baric to not sign the statement, effectively hiding their involvement. As previously discussed, Linfa Wang, who is copied on several other emails about the statement, was a coauthor of multiple Daszak/Shi/Hu papers. Wang is currently the Director and Professor of the Program in Emerging Infectious Diseases at the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School in Singapore. He is a PRC national who received his B.S. in biochemistry from the East China Normal University in Shanghai, PRC before completing a Ph.D. in molecular biology at the University of California, Davis in the United States.” https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2021/08/03/us-congressman-mccaul-releases-addendum-to-origins-of-covid-19-report/

“The Research Triangle, or simply The Triangle, are both common nicknames for a metropolitan area in the Piedmont region of North Carolina in the United States, anchored by three major research universities: North Carolina State University, Duke University, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, located in the cities of Raleigh and Durham and the town of Chapel Hill, respectively. The nine-county region, officially named the Raleigh–Durham–Cary combined statistical area (CSA), comprises the Raleigh–Cary and Durham–Chapel Hill Metropolitan Statistical Areas and the Henderson Micropolitan Statistical Area https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Research_Triangle
In 1999, the US Federal Government agreed that the University of California, Davis could gradually increase its research overhead charges to 48.5 percent. Although people raised alarm about the undue influence by corporations that grant and contract based overhead charges could cause, there has never been enough concern about the role of government contracts or of foundations, apart from the Kochs. A 1999 article, from UC Davis, explains what overhead means, as well as the percentage increase. It’s not a split, as we understood. Rather, it means that the university could charge an additional 48.5 cents for every dollar from grants, whether government or private donors. For the 2000 to 2001 budget year, 43% of the “overhead” was sent to the state government (i.e. California) and 54% to the University of California, Davis. This is in line with the 40-60% that we read about in the period. Indeed, the article cites the Chronicle of Higher Ed as giving the average overhead for public universities as 48.5% and for private ones 59.5%. See: “Grant Overhead Charges to Rise: Provost Redivvies Campus Share to Benefit Researchers” by Susanne Rockwell April 16, 1999, UC Davis: https://archive.md/e009i 48.5 cents for every dollar is 1.485. In this example, of the overall contract total, with overhead, one third is actually overhead, then. However, when they give the contract amount, it’s rarely clear if they are talking about contract amount plus overhead or the pre-overhead amount.
What this means, too, is that the state of California and the state of North Carolina, home to the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and North Carolina Central University, both benefit financially from Wuhan connected grants and these quarantine education contracts.

“MGT 433 ISOLATION & QUARANTINE FOR RURAL COMMUNITIES
This 8.0-hour, instructor-led course is designed to provide the knowledge necessary to begin planning for situations requiring the isolation and quarantine (I&Q) of a large portion of a local, rural population. This training will provide public- and private-sector emergency managers, community policy makers, public health, and public safety personnel with the general knowledge necessary to begin planning for situations requiring the isolation and quarantine of a large portion of a local, rural population. A rural community’s ability to collectively respond to an emergency requiring isolation and quarantine is not only essential to minimizing the negative impacts to the community at risk, but also to minimizing the long-term negative economic and health effects on the American public as a whole.”https://archive.md/0rBcz

More details on grant overheads: In 1999, the US Federal Government agreed that the University of California, Davis could gradually increase its research overhead charges to 48.5 percent. (Grant Overhead Charges to Rise, UC Davis, April 16, 1999 https://archive.md/e009i ). This 1999 article also explains what it means. What it actually means is that the university could charge an additional 48.5 cents for every dollar from grants, whether government or private donors. As the increase was gradual, this meant that for the 2000 to 2001 budget year, the University of California Davis would be charging 46 cents in overhead. Of that 43% was sent to the state government (i.e. California) and 54% to the University of California, Davis. The previous year “44 percent of the campus’s share, was allocated directly to campus units or as grants to faculty members. The Planning and Budget Office estimates that the new indirect-cost return programs will increase these allocations to 56 percent of the campus’s share. The rest of the campus overhead share pays for graduate student support, as well as the capital and operating costs of buildings that house research. This can include paying the debt service for buildings…” (UC Davis, 1999) The 40-60% is roughly in line with what we read about in the period. And, indeed, according to to the article, the Chronicle of Higher Ed, reported that “the national average for public universities was 48.3 percent in 1998”. However, the average for private universities was 59.5%. Through a program, created in 1990, called the Federal Indirect Cost Return Program, funds are returned “to academic departments proportional to the past year’s generation of overhead”See: “Grant Overhead Charges to Rise: Provost Redivvies Campus Share to Benefit Researchers” by Susanne Rockwell April 16, 1999 https://archive.md/e009i
