Someone who loved the case method died for it in a really horrific way- and all UC does is whine in response:
UC system, UCLA professor charged in lab fire that killed staffer [Updated]
UCLA has this...
University of California System, UCLA Professor Charged In Lab Fire That Killed Staffer
Daily Bruin: "Harran and the UC regents are charged with three counts each of willfully violating occupational health and safety standards."
University Diaries has this on an endowed chair prof at UCLA-“The wealth allowed Klein to give generously to a host of causes, volunteer as an unpaid professor at UCLA …”
- one wonders, can one buy their own UC stamped endowed chairs??- does Bob Barker come out of retirement to officiate?
We actually do need doctors for things other than botox and fillers:
California ERs Serving Blacks Likelier To Close
"This should be disturbing to people," said Dr. Renee Hsia, lead author of the study and a professor at the University of California, San Francisco.
"People who don't have an emergency room in their neighborhood, it's not like their emergency disappeared," she told Reuters Health.
UC Irvine counters:
"I think that the closures are a reflection of economics a lot more than they are about race," said Dr. Wesley Fields, chair of the Emergency Medicine Action Fund and a clinical professor at the University of California, Irvine.
Some work done by Princeton: Why Mexican Immigrants Can’t Get Ahead
Also, check this out: Lure of Chinese Tuition Pushes Out Asian-Americans - it starts off like this:
"Kwanhyun Park, the 18-year-old son of Korean immigrants, spent four years at Beverly Hills High School earning the straight As and high test scores he thought would get him into the University of California, San Diego. They weren’t enough.
The sought-after school, half a mile from the Pacific Ocean, admitted 1,460 fewer California residents this year to accept higher-paying students from out-of-state, many from China."
UC Davis is putting out their economic engine PR and folks are scrutinizing it-see mid page.
The Buzz: Pension reform crusader David Crane loses his post as University of California regent
yep, some at Sac Bee calls him a 'crusader'. some group at sf chron gave this short superficial editorial that was fluff... others thanked him for his kind words on his way out- kind words he saved for the very last minute. Let's remember- He was pretty light on engagement with members of the UC community. and he brought this up: "He said that he would explore the UC's five medical centers - which generated $5.9 billion in the 2009-10 fiscal year, according to UC documents - as one source of that revenue."-- but we never heard him speak anymore about it again...
all we saw from him at the regents table was flame thrower behavior- just insults spurted out against the legislature-- but he would go to other outlets to say a lot of other stuff... -- he should have been saying this at the regents table and in front of people from Sacto if he believes it. --if you watch this last link pay special attention toward the end where he says 'we have our own money, we need the names rather than we need the money...' gee, where have we heard that before? (btw, one of the Koch Bros put up serious $$ for this MIT PBS work that is great to watch.)
don't doubt Crane and Co. isn't worried about the money necessary to front future candidates... no worries there at all.
of course, who better than a hedge fund guy to lecture on generational theft... but looking at the sac bee and sf chron "edtiorial" content it looks like he prefers to be called investment banker. (we will leave his name on tab above until filled- for Auld Lang Syne)
Researcher takes on ‘empathy fatigue’ in the workplace -- there are other folks at Cal who have dug much more deeply into it- always interesting how the PR folks at Cal pick certain people to highlight- but, anyway...decided to include it to consider with this next...
was RFK (and are present day folks similar to him) the exception rather than the rule?:
Lower classes quicker to show compassion in the face of suffering -- reminded of present day Kennedys and in CA that also brings to mind Shrivers-- Maria Shriver, Arnie and-- David Crane, who says he is a Dem and wants to serve as conductor in orchestrating the leaders of the future...
Wonder what Bratton/Kroll think of these developements- since it concerns two of their clients...
