On Wednesday, health officials said 393 Pasadena residents have now tested positive for the virus.The number comes as county officials continue to push for more testing centers in minority communities.The new number came as the nation marked 60,000 deaths well ahead of August. Earlier this month, models said the national death toll would reach 64,000 fatalities in August.Meanwhile, media officials were pushing an FDA emergency approval of Remdesivir, a drug that has shown some improvement in some patients.More than 1 million Americans have tested positive for the virus since the first U.S. case was confirmed on Jan. 21.The University of Washington model used by the White House currently projects 72,860 domestic deaths by Aug. 4, with a range of 57,453 to 121,468, after adjusting its projections earlier this week.Meanwhile, the push for testing in minority areas continues in LA County.A testing center was opened in Compton earlier this week.Of the 977 people who died in LA County for whom ethnic data was available, 38 percent were Latinx, 28 percent were white, 18 percent were Asian, 13 percent were black and 1 percent were Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander.“Rates of COVID-19 confirmed cases and deaths are extremely high among Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders,” said Dr. Barbara Ferrer, county health director. “And they’re also higher among African-Americans and Latinx than among whites and Asians … Rates of cases and death are also higher among people with less income, while the rate of testing increases as income increases. these trends are troubling and of great concern and they suggest that more affluent residents may have better access to COVID-19 testing and to health treatment services, even as the rates of infection appear to be higher among lower-income communities and many communities of color,” she said. “These findings highlight the urgent need for more intensive efforts to expand access to culturally competent testing treatment and prevention strategies in the African-American, Latinx and Native American and Pacific Islander communities, as well as in our lower resourced neighborhoods.” Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Lamy tries to redefine educational experience

first_imgAt the height of the Vietnam War, universities were the place to be for students wanting to make a difference in the world. On any given day, students could engage in discussion about the war, often with prominent figures such as Daniel Ellsburg.Worldly · Vice Dean for Academic Programs Steven Lamy has taught abroad. – Courtesy of USC“Universities were alive with this very complex, difficult debate about America’s role in the war,” said Vice Dean for Academic Programs Steven Lamy. “If you looked out the window at any university, there was a discussion about the war and people were mobilized.”After spending about a year abroad, in Belgium and the Netherlands, and hearing about the war from a college campus, Lamy began rethinking his plans to use his studies in history and political science to become a lawyer. He was more interested in researching, and decided to attend the Graduate School of International Studies at University of Denver for his Ph.D.Now, at USC, Lamy has translated his experience into teaching.“The key thing is active learning,” he said. “The idea of active learning is not passively sitting there listening to a lecture, but interaction: talking in class, using case studies and doing exercises.”One of his strategies to get students involved is a research exercise, Beyond Google: Basic Tools for Research in International Relations. He said that rather than having teaching assistants spend discussion sections restating lectures, he gives the students work to discuss, such as an exercise that asks students to search for various publications that provide information on a variety of topics, from South African foreign policy to who won the Biafra Civil War.“[This] generation believes you can find everything on Google,” Lamy said. “My idea is, rather than say, ‘This is a journal,’ say, ‘Go find it.’ The idea is that you give them something like this to do and they develop skills to use later.”Lamy also suggests students learn through teaching, so he created the Teaching International Relations Program, placing about 200 USC students in local high schools to teach a series of lessons on international relations. He said students also stand to learn more about the subject through the creation and teaching of their lessons.“You do learn a lot about not only yourself, but about the field that you’re teaching when you attempt to teach,” Lamy said.Lamy taught at the University of Transkei in South Africa during the apartheid, where he realized the value of education when a student stayed after class one night to apologize for falling asleep during class. The student told Lamy that he woke up at six every morning, spent the day teaching at a school in his village, then took four buses to the university for night classes. The student said he wanted to have a degree to teach when  the apartheid was reformed. Lamy said the student attended class every night, and that was the only night he had ever fallen asleep.“[This interaction] said to me that I’d better prepare very well,” Lamy said. “I can’t take this lightly. It set up the notion that we both have responsibility: The student has responsibility and I have responsibility. You come to learn, and I come to learn with you.”Lamy’s work also took him to Eastern European countries, such as Russia and Estonia, at the end of the Cold War, as part of a program to develop case studies and to show university professors abroad how to teach international relations. Now, he stresses to his students the importance of traveling to learn more. He runs Problems without Passports, a program that provides short-term summer courses on global issues by taking students around the world. Past studies have taken students to Belize, Palau and Guam.This summer, a group of students is traveling to the Arctic to research climate change. They will begin in Finland and end in Lapland, stopping in several other countries along the way to learn about global perspectives on the issue.“It’s the idea of seeing the world from a different perspective,” Lamy said. “They have a different way of seeing things and that’s what study abroad does. The programs we’ve designed are short-term, but they’re appetizers. We hope that someone will go abroad and say, ‘It doesn’t hurt to go abroad, you can really learn something.’”last_img read more

Valley man personifies mayor’s hopes for L.A. youths

first_imgSYLMAR – Ruben Rubio has packed a lot of living into his short life. At 11, his best friend was slain by gang members. At 18, he made it into UCLA’s competitive theater program. By his early 20s, he’d done a national commercial and appeared on “The Shield.” At 26, he’ll attempt to become a naval officer. And Wednesday, he took the stage to introduce Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s State of the City address, serving up his own history as an example of hope. “I witnessed a lot of violence growing up,” Rubio said in an interview before introducing the mayor. “I lost two close friends at an early age. … That affected me profoundly; I wanted something more.” (818) 713-3738160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

On his way to UCLA’s drama department, he started volunteering with Communities in Schools, a North Hills gang-intervention, prevention and job services agency. After his 2003 college graduation, he took a job with CIS, running its hip-hop and boxing academies at Maclay Middle School in Pacoima. At the same time he’s pursued his acting career, he’s shepherded at-risk youths away from the gang lifestyle and into athletics and music. Though Rubio intends to pursue a career in the Navy in May, when he’ll attend Officer Candidate School, he hopes to continue community outreach in the future. “Here’s a young man representing this part of our great city in the best way, and I couldn’t be more proud of him,” said CIS President Bobby Arias, who helped recommend Rubio to the Mayor’s Office. “I told him, Go search the world, be Indiana Jones, be an officer and a gentleman. You’ll always have a home here.” [email protected] last_img read more

How did bitter past fuel 49ers’ Raheem Mostert’s 146-yard game?

first_imgBALTIMORE — Raheem Moster’s career-high 146 rushing yards Sunday were fueled, in part, by his bitter exit from the Baltimore Ravens.It wasn’t just that they cut him during his 2015 rookie season. It was how they did so. He vividly recalled after Sunday’s 20-17 loss how, back in 2015, the Ravens kept him around an extra week after quite critically telling him he’d be released.“I didn’t really have a good experience … Click here if you’re unable to view the photo gallery on your mobile device.last_img read more

My 3rd Commandment: Change Orders Are Nothing But Trouble

first_img My 1st CommandmentMy 2nd CommandmentMy 3rd CommandmentMy 4th CommandmentMy 5th CommandmentMy 6th CommandmentMy 7th Commandment Fast-forward another 10, 20, 50 years to the state of green building, and the average builder will be using as many green building design techniques, construction methodologies, products, and materials as the most cutting edge green builders are using today. In short, a massive shift is under way whereby today’s standard construction techniques are fast becoming obsolete. And I mean fast!So, when we sit down at a future monthly breakfast meeting of rookie and veteran builders (no, they will not all call themselves green builders), what advice could those a little longer in tooth give those just starting out? I hope it’s the same advice I myself learned 10 years ago, on the eve of our industry’s green building tipping point: WATCH OUT FOR THOSE CHANGE ORDERS!No excusesAlthough I know many builders who believe change orders are their friend, I must take the contrary position. While change orders have enabled me to make back money I lost as a result of a previous estimating or sales error, I believe an absence of change orders in our projects has greater value as a positive indicator of healthy operating systems and procedures. And this value far outweighs any potential benefit change orders may pose to make additional profits. In fact, many change orders are simply an opportunity for a builder to lose money, because the processes followed do not account for the fluid integration of changes once a project is under way. Other Blogs in this Series Why is the client requesting a change to begin with? Instead of looking at change orders as a way to make “more” money or to “make up” money, perhaps they should be viewed as an opportunity to look more closely at your systems and procedures to see what is not working and what needs refinement. Shouldn’t the issue at hand have been uncovered during the interview process, in the materials specification and product selection stages, or while your design team was working with the client on “needs, wants and wishes”?A paper trailThe proper execution of a change order requires writing up the scope of it and pricing it out for client approval in advance of any work being done. While rookie builders may fail to write them up and collect a signature first, most veteran builders have learned from previous errors, and they have this procedure down pat. At this stage of writing a change order, proper operating systems would dictate your work has only just begun. Now this written change order—this legal document affecting your contract—must be linked back to some combination of documents, including blueprints, accounting books, purchase orders, trade partners, the schedule, and the selections tracking process.Anybody who has been in this business more than five years has likely written a change order, priced it out, and received client approval in advance—only to see that change order poison the project because it was never linked to the preceding documents listed above. In essence, it just sat there all alone on an island, never got passed on to the workers, delayed the project without getting documented in the schedule, was not accounted for when materials or products were ordered, etc. …Better client selection, estimating, product and material specifications, and design systems will help you reduce the number of potential change orders. But when you are building green, new ideas will come to market in the middle of the project that cannot always be anticipated. Your processes for handling them have the potential to make or break the job. Remember:1. Put them in writing. The more detail the better!2. Include payment terms in writing in the change order!3. Put the schedule delay, if it exists, in writing in the change order!4. Get a client signature on a hard copy of the change order!last_img read more
