Data studies program will give liberal arts majors a boost in employment

Data studies program will give liberal arts majors a boost in employment

A team from the University of California, Davis, traveled to Silicon Valley and throughout Northern California a few months ago, meeting with managers at more than 20 companies to gauge what they were looking for in employees.

“They would really like to hire graduates of UC Davis who have the critical thinking and the big picture skills of social science and humanities,” said Joe Dumit, director of the UC Davis Institute for Social Sciences. “But they also need these graduates to understand their number one problem: data.”...

2015-16 Recommended Budget & 2014-15 Annual Report Now Available

2015-16 Recommended Budget & 2014-15 Annual Report Now Available

Today, Yolo County released its 2015-16 Recommended Budget and 2014-15 Annual Report.  The Board of Supervisors will consider the recommended budget on June 16.  Total expenditures for the county are recommended in the amount of $346,140,712 with general purpose revenues of $64,267,400, which represents an increase of $2,056,823 from the 2014-15 estimated general purpose revenue.  Capital expenditures are recommended at $3,618,159. 

This year’s Recommended Budget takes a cautious approach due to the already extended length of the existing economic recovery.  Even as the economy proceeds through a gradual recovery, Yolo County continues to experience higher unemployment levels than surrounding areas, the state and the nation.  Job growth, while improving, continues at a slow pace.

Bee topples big rig in Yolo County


A big rig overturned Thursday morning in Yolo County because of an unwanted guest – a bee.

The driver spotted the bee on his dashboard, when he tried swatting it out of his cab he ended up hitting a ditch along Country Road 98 near Davis. That caused him to swerve and his load of gravel to tip over, taking the two-trailer truck with it.

County Road 98 is closed between Hutchison Drive and Russell Boulevard. Highway patrol estimates it will take an hour to an hour and a half to clean up the area.


Fun Ways to Keep Kids Hydrated

Fun Ways to Keep Kids Hydrated

Elizabeth Leader Smith

Strawberry-Watermelon Water with Basil

I’ve read that children need between five and eight cups of water each day — and children who are very active may need more. So wait…how much water exactly should my kids drink? It’s a bit confusing.

Here’s what I do. I have water accessible nearly everywhere my kids go, and I offer them water a lot. However, I don’t count every ounce of water my kids drink because I make sure that they are getting hydration from plenty of other sources too.

A Toast To Drinks Other than Plain Water

You can prevent taste bud boredom by simply flavoring water with lemon, lime, mint or a little 100% fruit juice. ... Read More

Baby Justice's mother's health records sealed by judge


Health records for a woman accused of killing her son were sealed by a judge Tuesday.

The judge ruled the district attorney gained access to Samantha Green's mental health records without permission. When her lawyers complained, the judge sealed the records until the court can review the issue and make a final decision.

Green is accused of killing her newborn son Justice Rees, who was found dead in a Yolo County slough in February.

Green is expected in court later this month.

Toxin found in wells at former UC Davis animal testing lab


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - University of California, Davis officials are investigating the source of high levels of Chromium-6, or hexavalent chromium, recorded at the site of its former animal testing lab.

The Sacramento Bee reports standards adopted in 2014 for chromium-6 levels have put several wells in Davis over the limit for the carcinogen, including 42 of 100 monitoring wells at the Laboratory for Energy-Related Health Research.

UC Davis environmental manager Sue Fields says the presence of the carcinogen is a conundrum at a site where experiments never included chromium.
