Shopping for healthcare isn’t like buying computers

Imagine a world where you could shop for medical procedures the way you shop for computers. Most likely, price is near the top of your list when you're looking for a new computer. Not so when the "product" is a hip replacement or an MRI. Generally, what the procedure costs is largely irrelevant. And doctors will make the decision about where the surgery will take place.

Divest UC of USA or vice versa?

The University of California Student Association has approved a resolution to direct UC regents to divest financially of the governments of Brazil, Egypt, Indonesia, Israel, Mexico, Russia, Turkey, Sri Lanka and the United States. "UC students did not give consent to invest in governments engaged in violence against others," proclaimed the Resolution Toward Socially Responsible Investment at the University of California, targeting the above countries for human rights violations. The motion - which passed with nine yes votes, one no vote and five abstentions - faulted the U.S. government for conducting drone strikes abroad, as well as the nation's high ...

SBA helps millennials, possibly the most entrepreneurial generation

Millennials, born between 1980 and the mid-2000s, are the largest generation in the U.S., representing one-third of the total U.S. population in 2013. Their unprecedented enthusiasm for technology will spark change in traditional economic institutions and in the labor market. The priority that millennials place on creativity and innovation makes them an important engine for the U.S. economy for decades ahead.

A new year, a new legislative session

Beginnings - whether it is the New Year or the new legislative session - traditionally bring a whirlwind of optimism, collegiality and excitement for the future. 2015 should be no exception. On Jan. 5, Governor Jerry Brown will be sworn in for a record 4th term and will lay out his vision for the state. Talk of common goals and working together to achieve good results are sure to be the topics of the day. I look forward to working towards making that talk a reality.

A 'real' letter from Santa — priceless

For more holiday seasons than I can remember, I've written about a most vivid memory confirming the Christmas season had arrived. It was the TV commercial showing Santa Claus riding down a snowy hill on a sled that was actually a Norelco electric razor. Yes it's patently commercial. But, as a kid, it stuck out and continued to do so for years afterward.

We need more models like the Patterson Logistics Training Center

A good friend of mine, Phil Alfano, Superintendent of Patterson Schools, has created an exceptional collaborative model between education, business, economic development and government to prepare young people for jobs in the growing logistics industry in Patterson. This past week a group of educators and businesspeople traveled with Phil to Southern California to check out the Norco Logistics Center, a similar collaborative in Riverside County. On the way back to Stanislaus County, Alfano spoke to a group in Kern County to share his experiences building the coalition in Patterson. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Phil is working directly ...
