FROM THIS EPISODE

When deadly violence shattered a happy Friday evening in Paris, the pain and sadness struck deep here in Southern California. We talk to a French actress about friends and family in her old neighborhood — a place much like Echo Park, and to a Muslim-American leader, who feels outrage against the extremists and vulnerability because of his religion.

Also on the program, University of California President Janet Napolitano on her plan to increase the number of Californians admitted to UC… and the student movement against racial discrimination on campus.

UC President Talks In-State Expansion and Campus Activism 9 MIN, 1 SEC

This week, the UC Board of Regents will consider a plan to increase enrollment of students who come from California. People from other states or other countries pay three times more and their numbers have increased as state funding has been reduced. After years of complaint, the lawmakers have come up with $25 million to increase the number of in-state undergraduates by 5000 not later than next year. But UC President Janet Napolitano says that will cover just half the cost.
