CSU universities expected to choose a new chancellor next week

LONG BEACH >> The California State University community will learn next week who will be taking over as the system’s new chancellor. Current Chancellor Timothy White announced last October that he would be retiring, effective in July 2020. He put those plans on hold in March as the coronavirus pandemic took hold, forcing the 23-campus system into a virtual learning environment that will continue through the spring. The search process for his replacement was also put on temporary hold, but CSU Bo...

Gorsuch, speaking to students on Constitution Day, honors Ginsburg

Justice Neil Gorsuch praised Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s four decades of service as a judge, telling schoolchildren across America on Thursday to “think about the sacrifices she’s made on our behalf. We owe her a very great deal.” Gorsuch’s comments came during a “Virtual Student Town Hall” hosted by the National Constitution Center. The event, streamed by classrooms in schools around the country, was part of a long line of festivities by the center to celebrate Constitution Day. The day’s eve...

John Lewis and Waitrose axed staff bonuses for the first time in 65 years after recording a $71 million loss

Neil Hall/Reuters The John Lewis Partnership, the UK retail giant that owns department store John Lewis and supermarket chain Waitrose, won’t be paying staff bonuses for the first time since 1953, it said Thursday.

Memories of El Monte in the groundbreaking history ‘East of East’

Why wasn’t there a deep-diving cultural, economic and political history of the city at the heart of the San Gabriel Valley before the just-published “East of East: The Making of Greater El Monte”? Perhaps the need for such a volume is only apparent when it finally is in hand. Like a work of art, which this book is, if partly in a scholarly way, rather than the mostly rah-rah photo-heavy annals of local worthies many of the cities in the SGV and Whittier areas are treated to by volunteer historic...

Most beautiful university libraries

Most people go to libraries to read or check out books — not stare in awe at the 15th-century wood paneling and stained-glass windows. In many libraries around the world, however, the buildings’ stunning aesthetics are just as appealing as their content, making you almost forget what book you were looking for in the first place. Since libraries are essential to the learning process, it’s no surprise that some of the most impressive libraries are located in universities. While we tend to think...

CSU Campuses, Including Sac State, To Keep Classes Online Next Term

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — California State University, the country’s largest four-year public university system, said Thursday that classes at its 23 campuses will stay primarily online when the next term begins in January due to expected increases in coronavirus cases later this year. “This decision is the only responsible one available to us at this time,” Chancellor Timothy White said in a message to faculty, staff and 480,000 undergraduate students.

Angels squander their chances in loss to Rangers

If the Angels are going to make up ground in the American League wild card race, they can’t afford many more games like Wednesday’s in Arlington, Texas. They had an early lead. They had a chance to blow the game open with a big inning, after loading the bases with one out in the third and knocking out the opposing starting pitcher. They received four smooth innings from their own starter, Julio Teheran, which has not often been the case in 2020. A 7-3 loss to the Texas Rangers amounted to snatch...

Racism And The Plagues of Egypt – Coronavirus And Racism: America’s Two Pandemics

Introduction The fight against anti-Blackness has once again hit the global stage, and American Muslims have a central role to play in the movement of racial justice. The spiritual history of America is a history of Black Muslim voices. Mansa Abubakari, a West African King, landed in South America almost 200 years before Columbus began the massacre of the indigenous population.[1] The biggest migration of Muslims to America was the slave ships where scholars fought to teach Islam to their ensla...

Black ex-franchisees sue McDonald’s for discrimination

By Dee-Ann Durbin | The Associated Press More than 50 Black former McDonald’s franchise owners are suing the burger chain, saying the company steered them to less-profitable restaurants and didn’t give them the same support and opportunities given white franchisees. The 52 plaintiffs, who owned around 200 U.S. stores before being forced to sell them over the last decade, are seeking compensation of $4 million to $5 million per store, according to the lawsuit. The suit was filed Tuesday in federa...

AK Monthly Recap: August 2020

I always dreamed of spending a summer hopping along the Adriatic. I would touch down in Venice and head to Piran in Slovenia, making my way down the coasts of Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, and Greece. Well, I kind of got that. I never dreamed it would be under these circumstances. I am beyond thankful that Croatia gave me and my boyfriend what we needed — a place where we could be together at a time when we’re banned from each other’s countries. Beyond that, this trip allowed me to work wi...

Direct Questions And Answers

The Athletic asked a group of voices in hockey to weigh in on the same four questions on race and hockey. The answers are what you’d hope: Insightful. In some cases raw. In every case, thought-provoking. Why does hockey’s response to social justice issues often look different than other sports? (Brock) McGillis: It comes from, in my opinion, the fact that since the age of 7, you’re sort of off to the side, in arenas, where most sports are played in schools, and you’re with the same ...

Dodgers, MLB recognize pioneering contributions of Jackie Robinson

It has been a week like no other in baseball history. Already navigating a pandemic that has left stadiums empty and sidelined multiple teams, leaving their schedules riven with canceled games, players have taken the unprecedented step of refusing to play, using their platform to shine additional light on the call for social reform. “It’s been emotional for all of us,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said, particularly of the canceled game Wednesday in San Francisco. “I’m emotionally spent right no...

How Imposter Syndrome Sinks Its Claws into Multiracial People

At MHAScreening.org, we know that among Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) that take a mental health screen, people who identified themselves as multiracial were the most likely to screen positive or at-risk for alcohol/substance use disorders, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and psychosis. There’s research that shows that multiracial people have more behavioral health problems than their monoracial counterparts. They face unique stressors, and often find that it is difficu...

8 observations from Chargers’ training camp

Rookie linebacker Kenneth Murray was frustrated when the Chargers decided to rest him for most of the first week of training camp. Murray said he could have played through the soreness he felt after his first padded practice, where he showed flashes of why the Chargers decided to trade back into the first round to draft him with the 23rd overall pick. The Chargers had seen enough. They weren’t going to take any chances with their prized linebacker. Murray didn’t have much to be frustrated about ...

Why is the US Nordic Skiing Community so White?

Reflections from a White Skier on the Spaces and Places we Ski, and how to Build Inclusivity The start of the American Birkebeiner in 2010. The typical life story of a competitive nordic skier in the U.S. tends to resemble a character out of a Robert Frost poem. It’s an appropriate metaphor; the Rikert Nordic Center at Middlebury, VT doubles as the quarters of the renowned Bread Loaf School of English during its summer months, where the Bard of New England taught for many years . In Ameri...

Are cannabis shops targeting California’s Black, Latino and poor communities?

Unlicensed cannabis retailers are disproportionately setting up shop in California communities with higher percentages of Black and Latino residents, according to a new study by health experts from USC. That means, nearly four years after the state voted to license recreational cannabis businesses, residents of minority neighborhoods still have easier access to marijuana products that are highly potent, less likely to be tested for safety, don’t have child-safe packaging and are often cheaper th...
