All our faults
The work resulting from a long-term partnership between SF State researchers and the U.S. Geological Survey has been mentioned in media outlets across the country and around the world. Read about SF State's contributions to seismic research and engineering, lessons learned from the Loma Prieta earthquake and how to prepare for the next one.

Going local
KQED Radio interviewed Political Science Lecturer Calvin Welch and his students for an Oct. 22 story about young voters becoming engaged with local politics. "Kids are really hungry for history of redevelopment, urban renewal -- they've heard about it and maybe a relative was involved, but no one has ever explained it," Welch said. "It grabs their interest because they see the end result of it without me explaining it. They live it. It is very real."

A good life
Professor Emeritus of Political Science Richard DeLeon commented on the closure of the San Francisco Bay Guardian for an Oct. 19 San Francisco Chronicle story. While city progressives have lost their "ideological super ego ... [the paper's closing] is kind of like your great-grandfather dying at 95. It led a good life and it was extremely influential at some point," de Leon said.
