“The science remains unequivocal that vaccines are safe and vaccines save lives,” said Sen. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento), a pediatrician and an author of the bill.
A bill that would require mandatory vaccinations for nearly all children enrolled in schools is on its way to Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk after clearing its last legislative hurdle Monday afternoon.

+Stefanos Karatopis Yes. Because preventing the spread of life threatening disease, such as the measles outbreak at Disneyland, which prompted this measure, is exactly like living in the Soviet Union.

Again, Google is your friend. You might want to look up the numerous recent incidents where preventable diseases broke out in various populations because a small group of parents refused to vaccinate their children.

Regardless, this law does not force anyone to vaccinate their children, nor does it make any threats. It simply states that parents who refuse to comply with public safety requirements cannot avail themselves of public services for their children, such as education or daycare.

Surprisingly, even here in Texas, the Austin Regional Clinic just announced that as of tomorrow, they will no longer accept unvaccinated children as new patients if the parents refuse to bring their vaccinations up to date. This is because unvaccinated children present a health risk, even to vaccinated children. If a place like Texas is prepared to take a stance like this, it's probably worth taking another look at the issue.

Where did the Gap go wrong? Fashion critic Booth Moore has a few thoughts...
Sometime in the last two months, I walked into a Gap store and spotted one of the ugliest dresses I’d ever seen.

Why would Rachel Dolezal pretend to be someone she is not, and why would her parents come forward now?

The controversy surrounding Rachel Dolezal's identity has stoked a cultural conversation: Is race something your ancestors dictate or whatever you feel in your soul?  Who gets to police those boundaries?  Is skin color still the defining force? 

You can join that conversation in today's Times video chat,  as columnist Sandy Banks and USC law professor Camille Gear Rich talk about Dolezal's charade and the idea of "elective race."
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Los Angeles Times. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

My father has African and Mayan ancestry, my mother has Spanish and Zapoteca (southern mexico indigenous group), my skin is light or labeled white because of my mothers ancestry. My ancestors suffered the same conditions, the same plight and the same civil war environments,  I recognize I pertain to a certain region, from where my people come, but my ancestry is a 4 way dilemma. I don't care what you want to label me, as a greater society we shouldn't, but yes their are racists, in every ethnic group. Who will always refer to those differences. So do we live in a standard past, or move to cooperative future where everyone is regarded with respect and cherished.
