California now criticized from the left

California being what it is – a very large state with a complex social and economic matrix and a unique political structure – generates an endless stream of analysis and criticism. In recent decades, as California veered to the left politically, it drew fawning attention from like-minded media, portraying the state as a harbinger of the nation’s future. California’s politicians such as Gov. Gavin Newsom fed the notion. “California is what America is going to look like,” he has boasted. “Californ...

Why avatar style is the next fashion frontier for fashion brands

From Wii’s Miis to Habbo Hotel, avatars aren’t new to those who are digitally connected. However, over the last year they have acquired far more significance, and are increasingly allowing people to express their character through their digital replicas. This has been particularly relevant when the pandemic has kept real life interactions at bay. Avatars have moved beyond the generic. They allow a user to create a fantastical representation of their personal style – sometimes reflecting what ...

College rankings have made school less affordable, less equitable, and more miserable for students. The pandemic exposed just how broken the system is.

The incentives around college rankings forced universities to take actions during the pandemic that made student experiences worse and more expensive. U.S. News & World Report; Samantha Lee/Insider College rankings don't measure aspects of universities that are the most beneficial for students. They're mainly based on factors that are determined by wealth, access, privilege, and selectivity. The pandemic showed how truly broken the system is, yielding worse experiences for students...

Good reason to be critical of a politicized race theory

SACRAMENTO – Americans can’t get enough of their knock-down, drag-out culture wars, as epitomized by the latest national battle over “critical race theory,” or CRT. Not many ordinary people could even provide a succinct definition of it, which is a 40-year-old academic notion that places race at the center of almost every national debate. The theory – increasingly taught at the K-12 level, in universities and in corporate training seminars – postulates that America’s legal, economic and politica...

Facebook drops funding for interface that reads the brain

The spring of 2017 may be remembered as the coming-out party for Big Tech’s campaign to get inside your head.

Unions clash over UC outsourcing provision

“The pot calling the kettle black” is an old saying about hypocrisy, applied to someone who does something while criticizing someone else for doing the same thing. The Capitol saw a classic political example of the syndrome last week during a long and otherwise tedious committee hearing on a lengthy and complicated state budget “trailer bill.” We should all know by now that such trailer bills, which receive fast track approval because of their supposed connection to the state budget, have morphe...
