Maybe Chancellor Yang should order up ( 5 ) more police officers and more video surveillance on campus, maybe throw in a helicopter ? and why not fear sells :)

**Note to the Independent to make sure and bring this case, and any others where Mothers abuse their children, up for their Mother's day issue. They have no problem bashing men on Fathers's day ( and have done so on several occasions), hi-lighting the likes of deadbeat dads and how horrible men are etc etc.
It's interesting that folks immediately look for a racial bias here BUT fail to see that there is ALSO a sexist bias as well.

"the Realtors support anything that reduces crime"
HA that's funny it's more like the Realtors support anything that increases their commission, lets be honest.

So can we count on the independent's "critical hard hitting investigative journalists" to report back to the taxpayers on how successful this experiment turns out ?
Recall that the schools superintendent sold us on how "science and technology" would be funded by the measure on the ballot, eg the parcel tax. I also know for a fact that science teachers in the district who were critical of what was being done with the funds were told to keep their mouths shut, eg threatened to not speak up less they ruin the "deal" that was being crafted with Apple Inc.
So far , if you read the LaTimes the process has NOT gone well in the LA unified district and in fact appears to be a money hole with NO proof that these gadgets actually help kids learn.
Maybe I'm wrong, but lets give it a chance BUT NOT get hoodwinked by district admins and Apple's slick PR henchmen in thinking that this is the best thing since sliced bread. I'm skeptical though and mostly worried that the hard questions are neither being asked nor answered.

HA, The article could be titled " Fixed Gear Bikers Take Some Getting Used to"
In fact the way most of them ride around the UCSB bike pathes is with little regard for others, often causing dangerous situations for other bikers.
Oh yeh and a section on the attitude of the riders would be in store, you get my drift... "I'm cool and hip so get out of my way"
My guess is that this is a passing trend and as another posted " a bad idea" except maybe on a racing velodrome.

"...women make up about half of the national workforce, but only earn 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. "
This miss-representation of the facts is getting SO old, and politicians and journalist, much like the lemmings that they are, just continue to chirp the line without ever asking where and how that stat is derived, AND most importantly what it does NOT take into account.
Shame on the Independent for NOT thinking before repeating it again !

Ha, a large portion of the academics at UCBS should be committed to a residential treatment facility :) But best be careful b/c saying so could set the campus on "high alert" and get me in trouble too....

"Lichtenstein also reasoned Napolitano’s former high-profile position at the Department of Homeland Security and tough stance on immigration will ultimately benefit the entire university system."
What does this mean ??? That UCs stance on Illegal immigration will chance because of her ?

Ohhh come on whosecityisthis2012 , the idea that she is an innocent victim is ludicrous, she had plenty of power in this situation as well, and to not see that is naive. Power comes in many forms ( not just a high salary ) , she is a beautiful woman. Sadly they both loose as a result of their actions though, and taxpayers end up paying out.
