UC Paradox: Raises for Execs Saves Money?
As the UC system is whacking more than $800 million dollars from its budget, it’s giving raises to more than two dozen executives. Critics - from janitors to physicians - are outraged that the action is happening at the same time UC is "pleading poverty, giving layoff notices, forcing staff and faculty to take furloughs and hinting at more student fee increases." UC President Mark Yudof counters saying that the raises are actually saving money. Huh? He's here to explain.

Mad for Mad Men
Who says there's nothing to watch on TV? Sunday night kicks off season 3 of the critically acclaimed series Mad Men. Like so many shows before it, Mad Men is widely successful with critics yet barely on the radar of the American viewer - only about 2 million people tune in each week. But with 16 Emmy nominations in hand, will this be the season to put the 1960's drama on viewer’s must-see list?
