Sad story.
 
An historic observatory near San Jose is in danger of being mothballed, if University of California officials can’t come up with new sources of revenue.

I am definitely disappointed in the #mediacoverage  of the #RimFire  . There are thousands of people being affected, not just #Yosemite  and its tourists. Not to mention my parents.

Check out the video to get a little perspective on the size and scope of the blaze. Firefighters be safe.

New work on "frontiers" and its ever-evolving relationship! Shout-out to Barbara Berglund. Another great work!

Part 1, of a wonderful series of articles by my former professors on the significance of anthropology in higher ed, as well as its application in understanding the problems of education in the 21st century.

For the 10th anniversary of the MLK Jr. Library, #SJPL  will be opening a time capsule that was placed in 1970. While perhaps a little early - it only being 43 years - it will be interesting to see what will emerge out of it.
 
MLK Library Time Capsule - After 43 years, time capsule meets end of journey through time—and between libraries
