In a March 12 Los Angeles Times Op-Ed, Nasa scientist and UC Irvine Professor Jay Famiglietti explained how California only has one year of water left and no concrete plan to deal with the low water supply. How do you feel about this matter?
  • The low water supply is alarming, and the state should immediately start rationing water as Famiglietti suggests (65%, 244 Votes)
  • Though the information is alarming, before implementing water rationing, California residents should first try to decrease their individual water usage (21%, 77 Votes)
  • The state will find a solution to the low water supply before the situation becomes dire so no immediate action should be taken (10%, 38 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this matter (4%, 15 Votes)

Earlier this month, the UCLA Health System revealed an outbreak of antibiotic-resistant bacteria at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. UCLA later revealed the hospital knew some patients had been infected with the bacteria weeks before the February announcement. UCLA has been criticized for not releasing information about the outbreak sooner. How do you feel about this matter?
  • Although UCLA did not have to notify the public right away, patients who had been potentially exposed had the right to know sooner. (41%, 96 Votes)
  • UCLA should have released information to the public sooner, given how lethal the bacteria can be and how many patients may have been exposed to it. (38%, 88 Votes)
  • Taking time to fully investigate the outbreak before releasing information was up to the discretion of the hospital. (18%, 42 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this matter. (3%, 8 Votes)

This year, the California Legislature will vet the University of California's budget in a new way. Instead of merely approving changes from last year's budget, lawmakers will scrutinize each item line by line, an initiative called "zero-based budgeting." There have been contentions that this kind of time-consuming approach is unnecessary. What do you think?
  • Zero-based budgeting is important for keeping the UC accountable for how much money it spends. (46%, 73 Votes)
  • Zero-based budgeting is cumbersome, but necessary for finding new avenues of cost reduction. (34%, 53 Votes)
  • Zero-based budgeting is too time-consuming and redundant; the Legislature should just go through new line items. (12%, 19 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this matter. (8%, 12 Votes)
