Anaheim council may limit mayor's authority


From the LA Times:
Mark Petracca, associate professor of political science at UC Irvine, said California mayors almost always have the authority to set a city council's agenda. "It's one of the very few explicit powers that they have, normally specified in city code. It would be highly, highly unusual to take that authority away from a mayor," he said in an email.

From Antoinette Tuff to Captain Sully, heroes are made, not born


From the Washington Post:
Heroes aren't born, they're made. …And Kristen Monroe, a political scientist at the University of California, Irvine, reported that those who rescued people who were persecuted during World War II were more inclined to feel close to all their fellow humans – not just those belonging to a particular race, religion or group. They saw humanity almost as a large extended family, and that outlook helped compel them to act when they saw people in distress.
