Western State College of Law students in Irvine were told by a March 7 email from their dean that the campus “will be able to hold classes at least through March 22.” Since January, third-year students at Western State College of Law in Irvine haven’t known from one week to the next if final exams will take place as scheduled or if they actually will graduate in May, said Sydney McGregor, 32, who hopes to sit for the state bar exam in July.

A medical student’s first code. Here’s what he learned.

Well, today it happened. I participated in my first code. We were in the telemetry unit (the room where they monitor all the patients who have EKG strips) to ask about a different patient of mine only to find that a patient was coding (lost a life-sustaining heartbeat). With some coaxing from my attending, the […] Find jobs at Careers by Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

Here’s John Steinbeck Asking Marilyn Monroe for Her Autograph (1955)

When asking a celebrity for a special favor, it helps to be a bit of a celebrity yourself. As Keith Ferrell details in his biography, John Steinbeck: The Voice of the Land, the Nobel laureate had little patience for autograph seekers, pushy young writers seeking help getting published, and “people who never read books but enjoyed meeting authors.” The shoe went on the other foot when Mrs. Steinbeck let slip to her nephew that Uncle John had met the boy’s movie star crush, Marilyn Monroe. Sudden...

3 years after scholarship pledge falls through for Seattle students, college dreams come true

Aristotle Marr had nearly lost faith in the fidelity of promises after a scholarship pledge proved fickle. It took the collective action of overworked community members, private equity managers and professional athletes to restore it. Three years ago, the now 21-year-old shared a stage with nine other dapperly attired black high-school seniors inside the auditorium of […]

Artificial Intelligence Identifies the Six Main Arcs in Storytelling: Welcome to the Brave New World of Literary Criticism

Is the singularity upon us? AI seems poised to replace everyone, even artists whose work can seem like an inviolably human industry. Or maybe not. Nick Cave’s poignant answer to a fan question might persuade you a machine will never write a great song, though it might master all the moves to write a good one. An AI-written novel did almost win a Japanese literary award. A suitably impressive feat, even if much of the authorship should be attributed to the program’s human designers. But what abo...

Inspiring girls and women to pursue their career ambitions

Today is International Women’s Day, and this year’s theme, #BalanceforBetter, is all about achieving a gender-balanced world. If we’re going to achieve that, it’s important to know that boys and girls begin making pivotal decisions about their future at a very young age. But education options, career interests and gender stereotypes quickly begin to widen the gap between the ambitions of girls and their ability to pursue them. This trend often continues into adulthood (a 2018 McKinsey study indi...

The Cringe-Inducing Humor of The Office Explained with Philosophical Theories of Mind

"I'm a friend first and a boss second," says David Brent, middle manager at the Slough branch of paper company Wernham-Hogg. "Probably an entertainer third." Those of us who've watched the original British run of The Office — and especially those of us who still watch it regularly — will remember that and many other of Brent's pitiable declarations besides. As portrayed by the show's co-creator Ricky Gervais, Brent constitutes both The Office's comedic and emotional core, at once a fully...
