At a time when higher education can appear bogged down by legacy, the University of California System's newest addition is far less restricted.
The University of California, Merced this summer wrapped up phase one of a $1.3 billion project to roughly double the size of its campus and make room for as many as 10,000 students. It is doing so using an innovative public-private partnership (P3) model that is among the largest of its kind in higher ed.

More than 10,000 adults offered their thoughts on health care reform, immigration, climate change and other issues.
To capture a demographically and geographically diverse snapshot of the electorate, the survey queried more than 10,000 people and was conducted in five languages.

The assimilation of Hispanics into American culture is having an interesting side effect. It's widening the gap between generations, emphasizing the growing differences between the young and old, in a demographic where they often live in the same household.
Younger Hispanics have very different media preferences than their grandparents and even their parents. They have their own unique language preference. And they're much more educated.

Energy efficiency in cities is more than an environmental issue for low-income Latinos and other urban minorities: it could help stretched family budgets.

The report, published by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) and the Energy Efficiency for All (EEFA) coalition, found in a review of 48 major U.S. metropolitan areas that the economic burden of energy costs on low-income households can be up to three...
California's population will continue to grow over the next 45 years, but very slowly, a new projectionby the state's demographers reveals, with Latinos and Asian-Americans providing virtually all growth and the white population shrinking dramatically.
The Department of Finance's demographic unit projects that the state's population, 37.3 million in the 2010 census and nearly 39 million now, will top 51 million by 2060, 38 percent higher than the census number.
That would continue the state's relatively slow growth of the past two decades, under 1 percent a year.
The demographers project that the state's Latino population will grow...
