Making the News

Politics prof Wendy Mink has been in demand lately, discussing welfare reform in the Los Angeles Times and on KQED and KPFA radio in the San Francisco Bay Area. A version of the L.A. Times story that was picked up by the Associated Press appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Francisco Examiner, and the Santa Cruz County Sentinel. Mink also held forth on the privatization of Social Security on a Nevada City radio station.

Manuel Pastor was interviewed by Bill Schneider of CNN for Inside Politics, a show about Latino political power. . . . That interview followed one with the New York Times about a controversial $62 billion bank bailout plan in Mexico.

The Life Lab summer camp at Ohlone Elementary made the front page of the Watsonville Register-Pajaronian.

Marco Mangelsdorf, a teaching assistant in politics, has built up an impressive list of political analysis and commentary pieces that have appeared in some leading newspapers. Most recently, he wrote about the Native Hawaiian sovereignty movement for the San Jose Mercury News. Another column, on globalization, appeared in the San Francisco Examiner. And an article on Tibet and China appeared in the Santa Cruz County Sentinel in July.
