Tags: Fire Season Drought:
Just about every indicator of drought is flashing red across the western U.S. after a dry winter and warm early spring. The snowpack is at less than half of normal in much of the region. Reservoirs are being drawn down, river levels are dropping and soils are drying out.
It’s only May, and states are already considering water use restrictions to make the supply last longer. California’s governor declared a drought emergency in 41 of 58 counties. In Utah, irrigation water providers are increasing fines for overuse. Some Idaho ranchers are talking about selling off livestock…

#tag Voter Suppression: There has been understandable outrage and widespread criticism of the new voting laws in Georgia — and of similar efforts in other states. These laws would likely make voting more difficult, including by reducing options for voting and making it harder to use an absentee ballot. My research indicates, however, that such measures may not change election results much, if at all. Most U.S. voting districts at both the congressional and state legislative levels are safely controlled by one party or the other. Laws that slightly reduce the number of potential voters are unlikely to shift power…
#tag miscarriages Mother’s Day is a happy day for millions, but for those who have experienced a miscarriage, the day can be devastating. As many as one in four recognized pregnancies result in miscarriage. Pregnancy loss can be mentally and physically taxing. Women often have feelings of sadness, anger, isolation and guilt. Often, women blame themselves for the loss, which may lead to feelings of hopelessness and depression. I am a fellow in maternal-fetal medicine, and I have seen firsthand the emotional upheaval that many women experience after miscarriage. Caregivers and loved ones can help by understanding a woman’s feelings…
#tags Recall Gavin Newsom — Golden State Stimulus:
The governor today will unveil an $11.9 billion proposal that would send $600 stimulus checks to two-thirds of Californians and an additional $500 to families with kids. Under the governor’s plan, which must be approved by the Legislature, families who make between $30,000 and $75,000 would qualify for the next round of Golden State Stimulus payments. If approved by the Legislature, the plan would triple the size of the Golden State Stimulus package Newsom signed into law in February. That package included one-time $600 payments for an estimated 5.7 million residents who…
Despite the increasing diversity among America’s college students, business school professors remain overwhelmingly white.
In U.S. business schools, Black and Hispanic individuals make up 23.2% of students, yet only 6.7% of the faculty.
As a researcher with a long-standing interest in the reasons business schools lack diverse faculty, I — along with marketing professor Sonja Martin Poole — set out to examine how business schools select their faculty. We did this by talking to 21 Black and Hispanic professors who have served on search committees at business schools throughout the U.S. …
