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...

Survey: Beyond presidential politics, Southern Californians agree on some key issues

Though they differ sharply – and predictably – on choices for president and some other political questions, a new survey shows Democrats and Republicans in Southern California agree more than they disagree on a host of other issues, including a shared concern that the upcoming election might spark violence. On the predictable side, a survey of 956 adults in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties conducted by researchers at the Center for Social Innovation at UC Riverside show...

Why California is better at protecting your rights than the U.S. government

Do you trust your state officials more than feds, dream of California independence, or support breaking the U.S. into regional republics? Then you’re a traditional American patriot. Or do you cling to hopes of national unity, or believe in compromise to preserve our union of 330 million? Then  you’re part of the problem. The frightening 2020 election is disrupting how we think about America and California’s place in it—and thank goodness for that. Perhaps now, Americans might come to see nationa...

Kamala Harris’ candidacy gives Tamil Americans a moment in the spotlight

During her speech accepting the vice presidential nomination, Kamala Devi Harris uttered one word in Tamil. “Family is my uncles, my aunts — my chitthis,” she said.

Both women, she said, have been sources of strength and support, particularly after her mother, Shyamala Gopalan, a breast cancer researcher, died of colon cancer in 2009. Within seconds, social media was on fire. Harris’ mixed Jamaican and Indian heritage is ...

Stanford business school graduates knew their classmates would soon found great startups, and they created a unique club to invest in them. The result is a $1.5 million fund bound by loyalty, community, and democracy

Should Refusing To Wear A Face Mask Be As Taboo As Drunk Driving?

Tata Consultancy Misses Estimates on Rupee, Employee Costs

First-ever study of immigrants of the Inland Empire reveals diversity, growth

One out of every five residents in the Inland Empire – nearly 1 million people – is an immigrant, and that population is growing. Yet the region of Riverside and San Bernardino counties isn’t necessarily associated with immigration. Instead, it’s sometimes connected to white flight, or older communities where people flock for lower-priced housing. A report released this week by UC Riverside’s newly created Center for Social Innovation is looking to change that. The 20-page report – billed as a f...
