Areas hardest hit by COVID-19 in LA County are least likely to be vaccinated

In the push to inoculate as many people as possible with a limited supply of coronavirus vaccine, public health officials in Los Angeles County have noticed a disturbing trend they say is indicative of the coronavirus pandemic overall and the health care system in general. Those in communities hit hardest by the coronavirus were now the least likely to be vaccinated, and those disparities fell largely along both economic and racial lines. Among the top 10 communities with the highest rates of co...

Confessions of an accidental vaccine thief

It seemed too good to be true. And it was. On Wednesday, Feb. 17, at 11:40 a.m., I got an email from a friend telling me about a new federal COVID-19 vaccine program, along with a special password. This was a “test run” of a new vaccination site, with no age restrictions, but I had to act immediately to get an appointment. Could this be real? Every newscast was reporting supply shortages. Dodger Stadium was shut down. But then again, this was a federal program, so maybe they had their own stockp...

Newsom touts new Southern California vaccine pop-ups as counties transition to Blue Shield network

Gov. Gavin Newsom visited two federally funded pop-up coronavirus vaccination sites in Southern California on Sunday, Feb. 21, part of a statewide tour of such spots aimed at immunizing the state’s hardest-hit communities. The visit coincided with the launch of the transition to a new centralized system — which will include Riverside County in its first wave — to manage the state’s thus-far bumpy rollout of the badly needed vaccine. Newsom, flanked by several local elected leaders, said the mobi...

The number of people hospitalized with coronavirus in Los Angeles County dropped below 3,000 on Monday, Feb. 15, for the first time since early December, another sign that the holiday surge has retreated. Meanwhile, the county continued to grapple with the puzzle of advancing efforts to vaccinate the county’s 10 million people with the sporadic influx of doses.

Why do some California counties get COVID-19 vaccines into arms faster than others?

California is pushing shots into arms at a much faster clip than it was just a month ago — closing in on the national average, with vows to accelerate even further — but the pace of COVID-19 vaccinations varies greatly from county to county within the Golden State. A Southern California News Group analysis of state data found that smaller counties with fewer people and less complicated logistics are leading the pack in vaccinating their residents: Little Mono, with 14,526 residents, ranked No. ...

Newsom: State is falling short on goals for equitably distributing coronavirus vaccine

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday, Feb. 10, said the state was lagging behind on assuring that vaccines were focusing sufficiently on communities hardest hit by the coronavirus, but he said his commitment to equitable distribution was “not rhetorical.” “We are falling short of our goals of making sure we are truly being equitable in the distribution of this vaccine,” said Newsom at a briefing held in the Central Valley, where efforts are underway to begin preparing for the phase of distribution whe...

CSU system plans return to in-person learning in fall 2021

The California State University system, the nation’s largest public four-year higher education institution, will look toward returning students to in-person learning in fall 2021, which would be about a year-and-a-half since shuttering campuses at the start of the coronavirus pandemic in March.

Is Requiring Ethnic Studies In Universities A Good Idea?

“In essence, the California state legislature has made it mandatory for the nearly 500,000 students in the Cal State system to take the classes that student activists and others fought for universities to implement decades ago. While these classes are not without controversy, as a scholar who studies racial dynamics on college campuses, I argue their benefits outweigh their liabilities.” – The Conversation

Vietnamese murderer breathes free air; still faces possible deportation

Tin Nguyen stepped outside the prison, fell to his knees, and thanked God for his second chance. For the first time in nearly 23 years, Nguyen was a free man. His sisters ran to him. When they met, between his tears, Nguyen had something to say: “I apologized for what I have put them through,” he said. “I want to make amends.” That was on Monday, Sept. 28, the day he walked out of an immigration detention center in Adelanto. But Nguyen’s recent freedom doesn’t signal an end to the story. Freedo...

Vietnamese American felon facing deportation gets backing from activists, elected leaders

Tin Nguyen arrived from Vietnam as a boy, in 1979, with hope for a better future in a new country. But his refugee story took a bad turn. As the only Vietnamese kid in his grade school classes, he was bullied. As a teen, he joined gangs and, as an adult, he committed crimes. Nguyen ended up doing 20 years for murder and robbery. But Nguyen turned his life around in prison. And, last year, after his sentence was commuted, he was given a chance at freedom. That’s when he was picked up for deportat...

Ethnic studies should be inclusive, not divisive

If you’re interested in humanity generally, then you likely are interested in the histories and exploits of those from another background, or a different color. You’d be curious how other societies developed, their customs and beliefs, advances or mistakes they’ve made. And you may wish the government would not steer you around in your study. Anybody would be enriched by such study, having their horizons expanded by greater knowledge of people from other walks of life. In recent times, that curi...

Desert mosses use quartz rocks as sun shades

Desert conditions are harsh, and mosses often spend much of the year in a dormant condition, desiccated and brown, until rain comes. UC Berkeley and Cal State-LA researchers discovered two species of moss that found a hiding place under translucent milky quartz where they can stay moist and green and continue to photosynthesize and grow while other mosses on the soil surface go dormant. This is the first green plant known to seek such refuge.
