On March 15, the New York-based Shake Shack will open its first Los Angeles location in West Hollywood, with locations in downtown L.A. and Glendale to follow. This comes roughly five years after Five Guys Burgers and Fries, another iconic East Coast burger joint, moved west. Of course, some contend that despite the hype, nothing will ever beat out Southern California's In-N-Out. What do you think?
  • Neither of those can replace In-N-Out in my heart. (53%, 412 Votes)
  • Shake Shack is a welcome addition to the city's roster of burger joints. (37%, 290 Votes)
  • Five Guys Burgers and Fries is the far better East Coast burger place. (6%, 48 Votes)

Last month, the California Supreme Court decided to review an appellate court decision, which ruled that public colleges and universities aren't responsible for any harms students inflict on each other. The previous court dismissed a lawsuit filed against the University of California Board of Regents by a UCLA student who was stabbed by a classmate in a chemistry lab. How do you feel about this issue?
  • The court should uphold the previous decision that university administrations aren't responsible for students' actions. (53%, 136 Votes)
  • The court should ensure universities are held responsible for protecting students from other students. (36%, 91 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this issue. (7%, 19 Votes)
  • The court should not have decided to review this case. (4%, 10 Votes)

News broke Monday that the University of California Office of the President had network monitoring devices installed at UC Berkeley in an attempt to avoid future cyber attacks. This, UC President Napolitano holds, is necessary to avoid future security breaches, but some UC professors have been wary of possible privacy violations and the secretive nature of the new hardware installation. What do you think about this issue?
  • Network monitoring is necessary, but new security measures should have been implemented with the involvement of UC professors and students. (46%, 148 Votes)
  • The new security measures are an unnecessary overreach by UC administrators and unnecessary for protection. (29%, 93 Votes)
  • The new security measures are necessary to avoid disasters like the breach at UC Health. (17%, 55 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this issue. (8%, 29 Votes)
