Editorial: Thank you for sharing your voice

first_imgThis is the place where we learn what our readers think about Donald Trump or the national anthem protesters or climate change or the casino or Congress or other public servants. It’s where people can write what they know and like about political candidates. It’s a forum for them to lobby their fellow readers on issues of local importance like library votes and land sales or zoning decisions. It’s a place where people can share their experiences with the care they received, good or bad, at a hospital or a nursing home, where they can say thank-you to the good Samaritan who didn’t leave a name, where they can rave about that great local production or the volunteers who put on an event. It’s where they can take issue with the opinions expressed in our columns and editorials. This is where the discussion can be as individual as the fear of cars speeding on a neighborhood street or as collective as the threat of nuclear war.Our letters run the gamut of the political and societal spectrum. No letter is rejected or edited because it takes a particular point of view on any issue. We believe our society benefits from exposure to all points of view, even those points some might find disagreeable.As 2017 edges to a close, The Gazette has received letters from more than 1,135 separate individuals and published nearly 1,400 letters overall. The writers’ names are listed below.Many readers write only once, while others use the opportunity to speak their minds regularly throughout the year. We get most of our letters by email these days. But a surprising number of readers still write their letters by hand and mail or fax them in.We’re pleased to be able to provide this community forum for our readers, and we want to thank each and every one of you for sharing your voice.CONTRIBUTORS TO YOUR VOICEJeanne AbernathyEddy AbrahamRobert AbramsCarol AccorsiKermit Ackley Sr.Fred AcuntoMarcia AdamsRonald AdamsWilliam AikenWilliam AlbersJonathan AlbertNicholas AlejandroVince AlescioAl AlexanderPatty AlheimEric AlmondJeff AltamariStephen B.

Labour, Greens crack over cannabis views

first_img3News 27 January 2014Another major crack has emerged between Labour and the Greens – their incompatible views on marijuana.Last week they split on deep-sea drilling, and today Labour leader David Cunliffe dashed Green Party hopes of decriminalising cannabis if in power.New Zealanders are almost 50-50 when it comes to smoking cannabis. Nearly half have, including Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei.“I stopped smoking cannabis about 20 years ago,” she says.If the Green Party had its way it would immediately allow for medicinal marijuana and legal action for violent offences would be prioritised over possession.The next step is decriminalisation with a legal age limit of 18. But Labour says no way.http://www.3news.co.nz/Labour-Greens-crack-over-cannabis-views/tabid/1607/articleID/329908/Default.aspxlast_img read more

USC, UCLA collaborate to host Global Health Awareness Week

first_imgHighlighting a week of events focused on global health, USC will host a health career fair Thursday to help students realize that there are opportunities in global health beyond traditional careers.The career fair is being held as part of Global Health Awareness Week, a joint venture between USC and UCLA that was first held last year. This year’s theme is “Urbanization and Health,” and the event has featured a number of speakers and workshops.At the career fair, which will be on Trousdale Parkway from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., representatives from organizations including the Red Cross, Doctors for Global Health and TOMS Shoes will be present to discuss jobs and volunteer opportunities with students.Ivette Flores, program manager of the USC Institute for Global Health, said she hopes that this week’s events will remind students about the interconnected nature of the world and the impact they can have on it.“Los Angeles itself is a global village,” Flores said. “Even if you never leave your backyard and you live in L.A., you are experiencing global health issues because of the diversity of the population: health outcomes, mortality issues … Global health transcends all boundaries and affects everyone.”USC student coordinators Kelly Leech and Minh Tran are optimistic about the turnout at the fair because attendance at all of this week’s events has been high.“Attendance is up — people are talking about global health week online and on the Facebook page, and we’re getting a lot of messages from the website,” Leech said.Various events have taken place this week at UCLA and USC, on both the Health Sciences Campus and University Park Campus. On Monday evening, an exhibit by photojournalist Paul Rockower, “Public Health through a Public Diplomacy Lens,” was unveiled in the Von KleinSmid Center courtyard, and a discussion was held featuring experts Neal Baer and Sandra de Castro Buffington, who discussed the role of entertainment in public health education.Attendees found the presentations interesting and impactful.“I thought the presentation was very nice,” Elizabeth Connely, a staff member at the Levan Institute, said. “I don’t think I’m going to become a doctor, but I hope that in some way I can get involved.”The overall goal of the week, Flores said, is to raise awareness about the impact of increased urbanization on public health around the world and to help bring students interested in public health together.“We’ve noticed that everyone on campus is doing global health work in one way or another, and we want to make it easy for students to find those kinds of things,” Flores said.Last year’s inaugural series, “Global Health Awareness Week: Forming Partnerships, Breaking Barriers,” was initiated by a collaboration between two friends: a medical student at UCLA and a public health student at USC.“They were students interested in breaking down the barriers between USC and UCLA ­— the intention of which was to work together to where we had global health activity going on across Los Angeles,” Flores said.The global health collaboration between USC and UCLA does not end this week; students from both campuses and their affiliated organizations will be joining forces again April 18 to host Soccer in the Streets, a soccer game and health fair in Huntington Park to promote health and fitness.UCLA public health student Tina Batteate looks forward to other collaborations in the future.“I think it’s been a wonderful experience — I think we balance each other. We [each] have different faculty members working in different areas, and we complement each other’s faculty,” she said. “We have the Art and Global Health Center, they have [the Institute for Global Health] — we have different institutes on each campus as well, and it’s really great to bring them all together.”last_img read more
