The anti-Israel rhetoric is jammed so far down their consciousness that anything associated or perceived to be associated with it instantly stigmatized as bad. College students have lost their propensity for critical thinking.
CicLAvia in the San Fernando Valley was another testament to Los Angeles at its best. Once again, LA's longest block party has won over communities where the closing of major streets would have been unthinkable just a few years ago.
While I wish WUF events were held at more transit-friendly locations west of the 405, attendees are always assured a great presentation on a timely topic. Today's event with LADOT's General Manager Seleta Reynolds was no exception.
My family lived in St. Petersburg, only a few blocks away from the famous Mariinsky Theater, so my parents on occasion took me there to experience the magic of The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and, of course, The Sleeping Beauty.

To reinvent ourselves, we are well served to draw from our unique personal reflections and perspective on the world as a way of distinguishing ourselves in this new phase of our lives.
As the incidence rate of autism continues to grow, institutions and scientists are missing an incredible opportunity to study a unique and distinct demographic of the autism community: children of color.
