California Community Colleges to Award Bachelor's Degrees Under Historic Legislation Signed by Gov. Brown
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – In an historic first for public higher education in the state, Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation yesterday that allows California community colleges to award bachelor’s degrees in fields not currently served by the California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC).
The legislation, authored by Sen. Marty Block (D-San Diego), directs the California Community Colleges system to establish a pilot baccalaureate degree program in 15 college districts by no later than the 2017-18 academic year.

Ireland is a beautiful country- lush, rolling, green hills and Guinness on every street corner. Yet, there is a dark and terrifying side to the Emerald Isle- the driving. Driving in Ireland may be the one of the scariest things I have ever done, and possibly will ever experience. Not only are the roads about as wide as the aisles in a supermarket, but no one seems to notice or care. The country is essentially engaged in an ongoing game of “chicken”, with those unfavorable outcomes appearing on RTI news almost every morning.

Wild, free, spirited creatures rule this land. The atmosphere echoes with the melodic beat of horse hooves. Galloping faster, faster, faster – full speed ahead! Feet pounding against the ground, I long for a better view below. When I finally reach the rugged mountain top, my eyes bask in the view, admiring the varied creatures. Black, white, brown – all magnificent colors swirl together in this wonderful array of God’s creation.
