Remembering 9/11

Remembering 9/11

Can't believe that it has been 10 years since the attack on September 11, where were you when this happened?

I remember exactly where I was. I had just woken up in my college house when my roommate barged in to tell me to turn on the television. Scared by her blank face and the sense of urgency in her tone, I quickly turned on my TV in my room and saw the first tower in flames. Then a few seconds later, I watched the second plane hit the other tower. I will always remember that day.

Brown signs bill requiring university disclosure

SACRAMENTO, CA (AP) - Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill requiring more transparency from the fundraising arms of California's public colleges in response to a legal dispute over a speaking contract with Sarah Palin.

Brown said Wednesday that he signed SB8 by San Francisco Democratic Sen. Leland Yee.

The bill requires foundations set up by California's universities and college systems to disclose financial records, contracts and correspondence under the public records law.

Yee drafted the bill last year after California State University Stanislaus' foundation refused to release its contract with the former Alaska governor for a fundraiser. A judge eventually ordered the information to be released.

Yee says the bill will promote accountability and transparency over billions of dollars administered by the University of California, California State University and community college systems.

Denair teen battles obesity naturally, loses 100 pounds

DENAIR, CA - After attending a weight loss academy, a teenage boy chose to battle obesity the natural way and lost 100 pounds.

Now 18, Freddy Fahl is happy and healthy, but it took a huge reality check to get him to this point. Two years ago at 16, Fahl weighed 360 pounds. Fahl said, "It was kind of hard because obviously kids are going to be kids and make fun of you more."

Fahl's mother, Debi DeShon, said she was in denial, and it took her many years to realize something needed to be done.

DeShon said, "He's 16 years old and 360 pounds. I'm about to grow this kid up and at 18 send him into the world at 400 pounds. I couldn't do that. As a parent, I couldn't do that."

Businesses are asked to offer flexible schedules and telecommuting.
