California AG Rob Bonta To Examine Sean Monterrosa Killing By Vallejo Police

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — California Attorney General Rob Bonta said Thursday his office will review the fatal shooting of a San Francisco Bay Area man who police say they initially thought was carrying a handgun in his waistband but actually had a hammer.

Honoring Asian Pacific American Heritage Month at Google

My parents fled China by boat in the 1940s during the Communist Revolution, ultimately landing in New Jersey, where I grew up. As one of three Asian kids at my school, I felt like an outsider and it seemed clear that popularity and success didn’t come easily to people who looked like me. Today, I sometimes still feel like an outsider, and as a father of two girls, I often worry about what lies ahead for them. Our community is worried about our families, as the Asian and Pacific Islander (API) co...

How to Turn a Toxic Conflict Into a Good One

We’ve all been there: Locked in a heated argument, blood pressure rising, fixated on our next point rather than actually listening to what the other person has to say.

This is what journalist Amanda Ripley refers to as “high conflict”—and these days, we can slip into it when we’re simply scanning our social media feed or glancing at the news. It often feels like our entire country is stuck there.

5th Dead Whale Found In Less Than Month Near San Francisco Bay

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A fifth dead whale has been discovered in less than a month around San Francisco Bay. The whale was discovered near Fort Funston on Friday, south of the San Francisco Zoo. A cause of death has yet to be determined. April is the beginning of the gray whale’s northern migration, so finding dead whales near the bay is not unusual, but experts were especially concerned when, a few weeks ago, four dead whales were found in the span of nine days. “It’s alarming to respond to four ...

Word of the week: Bicycle Day

This is a big week in the altered-consciousness universe. Tuesday, April 20, is, of course, 4/20, the date “cherished by pot smokers around the world as a reason to toke up with friends and massive crowds each year,” as a 2019 Vox article put it.

(The shift from time of day to calendar date works only in the U.S...

However, the governor’s rosy...
