The Latest: Nevada brothel owners seek state’s OK to reopen

By The Associated Press LAS VEGAS — Before the coronavirus pandemic, tourist-dependent Nevada had a notorious attraction: It was the only place in America where someone could legally pay for sex. These days, even in the state known for sin, the business is taboo. Legal brothels have been shuttered for nearly a year, leaving sex workers to offer less-lucrative alternatives like online dates or nonsexual escort services. While the business of legal bordellos may seem incompatible with social dista...

California budget — from boom to bust and back to boom

Six months ago Gov. Gavin Newsom was bemoaning the reversal of the Golden State’s fortunes as his stay-home order to slow spread of the deadly coronavirus had helped turn a projected $5.6 billion surplus into a $54.3 billion shortfall. Although the pandemic crisis is far worse than it was then, with hospitals stretched to the breaking point to care for those critically ill with COVID-19, the state’s coffers not only didn’t drain as expected but are again overflowing with millions of extra dollar...

UC should halt talk of tuition hikes at this time

The coronavirus is upending longstanding educational models, as stay-at-home orders are shifting classroom learning to online alternatives. The long-term effects will take years to shake out, but one needn’t be particularly prescient to realize that they might result in permanent disruptions. Nevertheless, the University of California continues to operate on a business-as-usual basis, as it considers tuition and fee increases during its Board of Regents meeting later this month. Some UC leaders ...

Shades of 2003 as Newsom comes under increasing scrutiny

“I don’t like this,” then-Governor Gray Davis told NBC’s Today show, “It’s bad for democracy.” The year was 2003 and Davis was fighting with the people of California to keep his job. Even though it was less than a year since he had won re-election, voters had signed recall petitions with a speed and intensity that shocked political observers. Time magazine wondered why Californians would spend $60 million to recall a governor “who has not committed any malfeasance and whose major sin was hiding ...

Fauci: Coronavirus ‘surge upon a surge’ is preventable

Even as the coronavirus rips through California and the situation threatens to worsen over the holidays, vaccinations and safety measures will eventually help the state and the U.S. put the pandemic in the rear-view mirror, said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, during a virtual conversation Friday with California State University Chancellor Timothy P. White. During a 40-minute conversation, Fauci, who has been selected by President-elect J...

Bring down barriers to interstate telemedicine

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a natural experiment for telemedicine as patients have chosen the service over in-person appointments. Many governors waived restrictions on cross-state practice, concerned that a heavy load of COVID patients would require access to additional clinicians. Yet we should not overlook that, even during normal times, telemedicine serves a multitude of functions. In particular, interstate telemedicine—in which physicians serve patients in other states—can facilitate ...

The CSU system, headquartered in Long Beach but with 23 campuses throughout the state, announced plans to bring students back to campus on Wednesday, Dec. 9. Cal State officials had kept the timeline for ...

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

Never forget the great Walter E. Williams

Walter Edward Williams, one of the world’s greatest champions of liberty, passed away this week at the age of 84. His life and ideas will never be forgotten. Born in Philadelphia on March 21, 1936 and raised in the Richard Allen housing projects, Williams never allowed himself to be a victim of his circumstances.

‘A game changer’: Humboldt State University ponders becoming third Cal Poly

Humboldt State University will conduct a self-study, at the request of the California State University system, examining whether it should become a polytechnic university. HSU announced Monday that it would conduct the study and would complete it by spring 2021. There is no guarantee the university will become a polytechnic and no timetable for when it might. “Designation and recognition of HSU as a polytechnic university would make your campus increasingly attractive to students from around Cal...

California needs school choice, not affirmative action

On Election Day, Californians voted against re-instituting affirmative action in public education, employment, and contracting. The failure of Proposition 16 is the latest chapter in the state’s affirmative action saga: legal through the 60s, 70s, and 80s, banned in 1996 via Proposition 209, and the subject of multiple legislative and legal challenges since then. Prop 16’s failure has no doubt left many affirmative action advocates disappointed, perhaps especially because it will make admissions...

Rays of constitutional rights shine through in California

I have lived in six U.S. states during my long lifetime, living for years on the East Coast, in the Midwest, and on the West Coast. I moved to California two years ago and can testify that it is the most socialistic, government-controlled state in the country. Recently, though, numerous rays of constitutional rights have shown through: the constitutional right to the privacy of contracts, the right to private property, and the right of all people against discrimination. These rights were protect...

It took 2 brothers 14 years to make ‘Fatman,’ a Santa Claus movie with gunfights and Mel Gibson

For years, the paradox of “Fatman” was that Ian and Eshom Nelms wrote a screenplay so good that no one would let them make it. “We had that script and we would show people and they’d be like, ‘Holy (bleep), this is crazy,” Ian Nelms says. “That script is what got us representation,” Eshom Nelms adds of the screenplay they wrote around 2006  when they were just starting out as a filmmaking team who wrote and directed (and under a pseudonym edited, too.) Attorney General nominee William Barr s...

Proposition 16 solves for a problem that may not actually exist

This year, California voters are being asked to vote on an initiative, Proposition 16, that would again make race an explicit factor in public employment, contracting, and college admissions. This effort comes over twenty years after Californians outlawed the use of affirmative action — or the preferencing of race, ethnicity, or gender — in these processes. Nearly all of California’s political heavyweights, from vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris to Gov. Gavin Newsom, have endorsed the meas...
