Lessons in litter: Two ocean-focused groups hope to connect with students about beach trash

Judging from the amount of trash left behind along the Southern California coast, lessons about litter still need to be taught to beachgoers.

Gavin Newsom for what could be a once-in-a-lifetime appointment. Joe Biden tapped Harris this week to join him on the Democratic presidential ticket.

Election outreach in So Cal shows it’s tough to boost voting in a pandemic

“Is there an option to vote online just like the Census 2020?” “How am I supposed to pick a candidate?” These are some of the questions voters asked during a series of focus groups recently organized by researchers from UC Riverside and the government watchdog group Common Cause aimed at learning why young and racially diverse Californians aren’t as likely to vote as older white people. “There’s a real hunger for more information, simply conveyed, and conveyed in [their] language,” said Jonathan...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: Strange but true: We had no Wi-Fi and no one cared

You’re not going to believe what I’m about to tell you, but I swear it’s true: I took a crowd of young 20-somethings away for five days to a place where there was no internet. That’s right.

And not only did they allow me to take them to this place, but they didn’t demand to leave when we got there. Nor did they go upstairs to the cafe, which was the only place around infes...
