Surge in anti-Asian hate crimes raises fears in Southern California

For several weeks last April, Garden Grove resident Linda Nguyen didn’t leave her home. She worked remotely. She ordered her groceries and food online. She didn’t take walks in the neighborhood. What Nguyen says “paralyzed” her was not the coronavirus. It was the fear that she, like many other Asian Americans, would be physically attacked by someone who might mistakenly blame her for the pandemic. “The fear that someone would physically hurt me was very real,” she said. Linda Nguyen, who has ...

Before 2020 election, Southern Californians sought online extremist content, report says

Tens of thousands of Americans — many of them living here in Southern California — searched for specific information about conspiracy theories, joining armed or violent extremist groups, and making Molotov cocktails and other explosives, even napalm, before and after the November 2020 presidential election, a new report shows. Between September and December, the Anti-Defamation League and Moonshot CVE, a London-based company that attempts to disrupt online extremism with counter-messaging, track...

Experts fear violent demonstrations could continue after Biden’s inauguration

This week, the FBI confirmed what experts who study violent extremism and domestic terrorism have said they feared since rioters breached the U.S. Capitol — continued violence before and after President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. With a week to go before Biden takes his oath of office, the FBI is warning of plans for armed protests at all 50 state capitals and in Washington, D.C., in the days leading up to the Jan. 20 inauguration.

FBI reassembles shredded plan for 2015 San Bernardino terrorist shooting

Thin strips of paper, remnants of a handwritten diagram with notes that Rafia Sultana Shareef allegedly fed into a shredder just after the Dec. 2, 2015, San Bernardino terrorist attack, have been reassembled like a puzzle by federal investigators to provide a new account of the shooters’ planning for the siege that killed 14 people and wounded 22 others at the Inland Regional Center. Corona resident Shareef, 66, also known as Rafia Farook, is scheduled for sentencing on Jan. 28 in U.S. District ...

Sentencing for mother of San Bernardino terrorist attack shooter is postponed

The sentencing for that was scheduled for Friday, Dec. 4, has been postponed to Dec. 14 because her attorney has symptoms of COVID-19. Farook, also known as Rafia Sultana Shareef, pleaded guilty on March 16 to shredding a map drawn by son Syed Rizwan Farook in advance of the Dec. 2, 2015, San Bernardino terrorist attack. The siege on the San Bernardino County Division of Environmental Health holiday party and training session at the Inland Regional Center killed 14 people and wounded 22 others...

CSU presidents encouraged to reassess post-holiday plans due to coronavirus surge

Amid surging coronavirus cases and the likelihood of students and staff traveling over the holidays — despite recent stay-at-home orders that will limit private gatherings — California State University system officials have urged campus presidents to reassess post-holiday scheduling, including possibly delaying the start of already limited in-person instruction. In a letter to the system’s 23 campus presidents this week, outgoing CSU Chancellor Timothy White and incoming Chancellor Joseph Castro...

Hate crimes in the United States surged to the highest level in more than a decade in 2019, a year that also recorded the highest number of hate-motivated killings, according to the FBI’s annual report on hate crimes released Monday, Nov. 16.

Social justice on ballot scores some victories, suffers some defeats

Why should suspects with money be able to leave jail while the gears of justice grind, while those without money are stuck behind bars? Should skin color, sex and ethnicity be factors in public college admissions, and who gets public jobs and contracts? Why should criminals who’ve been given probation instead of jail time be allowed to vote, while parolees – who did prison time and are finishing their sentences on the outside – are forbidden from voting? California voters wrestled with ballots c...

LONG BEACH >> The California State University community will learn next week who will be taking over as the system’s new chancellor. Current Chancellor Timothy White announced last October that he would be retiring, effective in July 2020.

As Nov. 3 election draws near, fears mount of escalating street violence

As a bitterly divided nation barrels toward the Nov. 3 presidential election, experts who study domestic terrorism and extremism are alarmed by the escalating civil unrest across the country, with one warning that “once violence becomes more normalized, it doesn’t go back in the shell.” A summer of street protests since the Memorial Day killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis is turning more deadly, marked by the Aug. 25 fatal shooting of two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, by an armed youth wh...

Preventing cyberattacks an increasing challenge for academic institutions

Preventing attacks from hackers and cybercriminals is an increasing concern for academic institutions already facing enormous challenges during this time of distance learning.

Rialto Unified had to suspend its distance learning program and collect any devices that were infected. The district hopes have classes back online for pre-kindergarten through eighth grade as early as Mo...

How stable housing offers a key ingredient to these students’ success

It was all smiles when Cynthia Carlin accepted the scholarship with her three young sons looking on. A group of Hope Through Housing volunteers arrived at her front door with balloons, a giant Building Bright Scholars photo frame and her scholarship award package. Cynthia has been a resident of the Villagio affordable housing community in Rancho Cucamonga for the past several years. As a single mom, raising three boys is challenging enough. But Cynthia is dedicated to providing a better future f...

Alexander: A reprehensible act that could be a positive turning point

The pushback toward Bubba Wallace was predictable, I suppose. The nature of the pushback – the noose surreptitiously placed in the garage of NASCAR’s only Black driver Sunday at Talladega, as cowardly as it was vicious and reprehensible – sort of tells you everything you need to know about those who feel compelled to display or support the Confederate battle flag, which NASCAR decided to ban largely because of Wallace’s efforts. And the scene before Monday’s rescheduled NASCAR race in Alabama wa...

‘Zoom University’ students stuck with unwanted leases

Liana Chavez was halfway through her freshman year at Cal State Fullerton when she and three sorority sisters signed a lease for next year at the University House Fullerton student housing complex, one block south of campus. Then the coronavirus pandemic hit, shutting down almost all in-person classes at the state’s fourth-largest four-year university. Although all but one of her classes — a lab — will be online during the fall, the Northern California resident can’t get out of that lease unless...

How your Zoom meeting can avoid ‘Zoom-bombs’ of porn and profanity

As Californians have stayed home to avoid spreading the coronavirus, many have stayed connected to their campuses, workplaces or government meetings through videoconferencing. But trouble has followed. Loopholes in the most popular videoconferencing software, Zoom, have allowed trolls to insert pornographic videos into city council meetings, profanity and racism into high school classes and more. A screen grab from a video shows a March 31, 2020, Laguna Beach City Council meeting. Security fla...

Evacuated Peace Corps volunteers adapting to sudden homecoming, forced by coronavirus

Together, three Southern California women made a heart-wrenching journey back from Botswana last month, part of the unprecedented evacuation of 7,300 Peace Corps volunteers from 61 countries. Just days after the Peace Corps’ March 15 order, calling back all of its volunteers to the United States because of the COVID-19 outbreak and related travel constraints, Janet Curiel, Mary Helen Gomez and Lindsay Salem found themselves on a flight out of Botswana’s capital of Gaborone, in Southern Africa. ...

Alexander: When sports return, how different will they be?

Did you believe those suggestions early on that it would only be a few weeks before society, and sports, would be back to normal? Neither did I. And as the coronavirus pandemic continues, and postponements and cancellations topple the guideposts on the sports calendar one by one, it’s obvious that normal isn’t going to come back for months, or maybe years, or maybe ever. So when we finally come out on the other side of this, what will spectator sports in this society look like? Radically changed...

Next stop for ‘college promise’ efforts: Free Cal State University?
