San Diego State University is reviving a controversial “pop-up course” about impeaching President Trump. According to a report from The College Fix, San Diego State is offering a “pop-up course” about the impeaching President Trump. The course is almost identical to a course that was canceled earlier this year after community members complained about its partisan nature.The original course, which had the words “Trump” and “conviction” in its title, has been only slightly modified from its original form. The course, which is now titled “Impeachment, Removal, and Special Counsel,” is taught by John Joseph Cleary and took place over two days in October.

However, there are some indications — such as an increased vacancy rate — that the pace of rent increases could be slowing.In the last six months, average rent has increased less than 2 percent.“What we noticed was some of the older stuff pushed rents a little too much,” said Russ Valone, CEO of MarketPointe. “We saw a number of new projects where they rolled the rent back.”Vacancy rates ticked up to their highest point since 2014 in March — 4.08 percent — as the flood of high-end rentals hit the market.
