The Los Angeles City Council will vote Sept. 1 whether to become the official American candidate for the 2024 Olympics. Having Los Angeles host the Olympics would cost an estimated $4.1 billion and city officials projected a $161 million surplus. However, according to another analysis by the city, many of the proposed upgrades and cost estimates are based on on vague and potentially inaccurate assumptions. This has led to further questioning about the future of Los Angeles' Olympic bid. What do you think?
  • I don't know how I feel about this issue. (38%, 137 Votes)
  • Councilmembers should support the bid. (23%, 83 Votes)
  • Los Angeles should not be considering hosting the 2024 Olympics. (21%, 75 Votes)
  • The city council should only approve a bid if officials can further minimize the estimated cost. (18%, 61 Votes)

The undergraduate student government finance committee found no evidence that the LET'S ACT! slate misused student funding during its election campaigns. The committee only examined a few of the slate's requisition forms and did not investigate other allegations, such as soliciting student group funds, selling illegal substances for campaign funds and conspiring against the Community Programs Office director. What do you think?
  • I don't know how I feel about this issue. (59%, 280 Votes)
  • The Finance Committee should have examined all of LET'S ACT!'s requisition forms because they provide more details on how funds were used and other allegations. (17%, 79 Votes)
  • The Undergraduate Students Association Council should create an investigative committee that will have the resources to investigate into both campaigning-related and student fee funding allegations. (16%, 75 Votes)
  • The committee's investigation was adequate to settle claims against LET'S ACT!. (8%, 43 Votes)

  • The city should create bike lanes on a wider or less heavily trafficked street in Westwood, such as Sepulveda Boulevard or Gayley Avenue. (23%, 116 Votes)
  • Bike lanes on Westwood Boulevard would not only ensure bikers' safety, but encourage sustainable transportation and reduce traffic. (18%, 91 Votes)
  • It is unnecessary for the city to sponsor bike lanes in Westwood. (8%, 44 Votes)

On July 16, the California Legislature approved Senate Concurrent Resolution 35, urging the University of California to condemn all forms of anti-Semitism and racism on its campuses. The resolution uses parts of the U.S. State Department's definition, but does not explicitly include acts demonizing or delegitimizing Israel. Its passage has reignited a debate about whether the definition of anti-Semitism should include a reference to Israel. What do you think?
  • The state should have used the full U.S. State Department's definition because Israel is important to the Jewish identity. (44%, 290 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this issue. (36%, 234 Votes)
  • The legislature should continue to reference a definition of anti-Semitism excluding Israel. (17%, 111 Votes)
  • The California State Senate should let the University of California determine the definition's parameters. (3%, 22 Votes)
