Supt. Cortines: Big Man on Campus

It's our monthly sit-down with the big man on campus, LA Unified superintendent Ramon Cortines. This month Patt asks the question that's on everyone's mind: when are the layoffs coming, from where, and how many? Also, California is the first state in the nation approved to receive education recovery act dollars, up to $3.1 billion for the state. As the largest school district in California, how much money will go to LAUSD?

Ask the Chief

It's time for our monthly installment of Ask the Chief—your opportunity to ask LAPD Chief Bill Bratton your law and order questions. This month, Patt asks the Chief about the budget cuts he'll have to make, the naming of the new LAPD headquarters, and for an update on the infamous backlogged rape kits. That—and your questions—with the Chief.

FUELing up for Earth Day

Director Josh Tickell's film "FUEL" takes its viewers through America's complicated energy past of oil addiction—from Rockefeller's strategy to halt Ford's first ethanol cars, to Vice President Cheney's petrochemical company-sponsored energy legislation—and ultimately reveals ways to "repower America," from vertical farms that occupy skyscrapers, to algae facilities that turn wastewater into fuel. Tickell joins us to think big and green on Earth Day.
