21st Century

Well, I took another step into the 21st century the other day when my family bought a flat screen TV.  My old 26-inch tube TV still works fine which is why we kept it as long as did, 18 years.  Temporarily it is in my youngest son's room serving as a monitor for the old DVD player (my oldest son did not want it).  It wasn't until the very moment when my son helped me put the new TV in the cabinet that I realized how deliriously exciting it was for my kids to get a new TV. I remember how thrilled my family was when we bought our first color TV.  It was in 1970 and I filled four pages of a photo album to memorialize the event.  Each member of my family posed next to the impressive looking piece of furniture (back then, it wasn't the size of the TV but the look of the cabinet that caught people's attention)

Though all have the freedom to speak or write their opinion, a responsible and journalistically sound newspaper will not print horrifically racist and intolerant letters. Not a newspaper in America in the 21st century. Not after a century of racism and intolerance that lead to at least seven major genocides. Responsible journalism does not fan the fires of intolerance and racism and so I am shocked that the News-Press printed the invectives Paul Carney unleashed upon the Armenian community of Glendale on Jan. 16. Has the Glendale News-Press stooped so low as print such things to attract readers?

As a Glendale resident and student at GCC, I see the needs of the college on a day-to-day basis. From limited classroom space to absolutely no parking, the school needs help. I've lived in Glendale for a few of years and graduated from Glendale High. When I got the first mailer that spoke about building more parking and adding new classrooms I was ecstatic. The fact that they want to upgrade the labs and complete the science center shows me that they have a commitment to educate students for the 21st century.

In agreement with Smith's column I want to applaud Steve Smith for his column, "Static over TV issue," Saturday. I believe it's well-written and well-said. I totally agree with him about the hypocrisy on the left, and he expressed very well my same feeling, and I thank him for the time and effort that he took to put the column in the paper. MICHELE FRASER Corona del Mar Community should support Measure F Measure A has done an excellent job -- on time and on budget -- of bringing 1950s schools up to 21st Century code, but they are still 1950s schools.

The role of police on the Glendale Community College campus is important. As we all know, the police have the responsibility to enforce the law. Educational places such as schools, colleges and universities are expected to be far from any crime or illegal activities. But in the 21st century anything could happen. As a GCC student I feel safer to see the campus police patrol car driving around and making sure that nobody is harmed, being robbed or attacked. One night I was walking through the bridge in order to get my car on parking's sixth floor.

I attended the Starbucks hearing and found today's (April 12) article to have omitted the reason for the hearing, and other points of interest. The hearing was held to question Starbucks' zoning variance, which allowed it to open with seating for 18, not to change the underlying zoning that would allow Starbucks to remain with seating for eight. Also, possible solutions to the problems raised by four (but not all) Burchett residents were addressed. For instance, slanting the existing parking to discourage customers from making illegal left turns into the existing spaces, changing red zone parking on Hahn to green (even 30 minutes green)

David Silva Computer technology. Increasing academic standards. Heightened campus security concerns. New and returning students face a far different school experience in the 21st century than did their predecessors. But in many ways, their experience remains much as before. Parents and children still agonize over back-to-school fashions. There's that rush for school supplies we all remember. And of course, there's that peculiar mixture of sadness for the loss of summer's freedom and anticipation for the challenges ahead.

Matt Bellner of Burbank is an actor. The "Daredevil," played by Ben Affleck, is a pill-popping, booze-drinking, womanizing, butt-kicking comic book superhero for the 21st century. He solves problems with a punch-first, ask-questions-later attitude. Imagine Spiderman combined with Charles Bronson from "Death Wish" and you have the "Daredevil." The plot is thin, but it's basically about the Daredevil avenging his father's murder and hunting down the evil Kingpin (Michael Clarke Duncan)

When working with teenagers, I try to keep up with the latest trends so that I can name-drop a Kardashian or crack a joke about Instagram to let them know that this old-man teacher does have an awareness of youth culture. So not only do I know who Justin Bieber is, but I know how his arrest last week in Miami impacted his fans - my students. His name has now been added to the long list of celebrities gone astray. The only real surprise was how long it took the tween superstar to fall from grace.

In the dismal Los Angeles election cycle that mercifully concluded on May 21, much was made about the lack of women in high places if Wendy Greuel didn't win the mayor's race. Greuel herself played the gender card over and over, with pictures of her happy family on every mailer and email, her young son nearly always at her side at weekend and other events, reiterating how being a mother, a wife and woman in a man's world made her especially qualified to run a complex and troubled city of nearly 4 million people.

Very interesting that I was looking for a friend who is a certified public accountant as well as a civic activist about 10 days ago, only to find out via the Mailbag (“ A long-distance fan of the city clerk ,” Feb. 23) that he is endorsing Ardy Kassakhian for reelection, and also to find out he has now moved to Athens, Pa. Interesting to know that reading and subscribing to Glendale News-Press serves another purpose as well: You need to find someone, then read the News-Press.

When our old microwave expired recently, the Glendale Sears provided the opposite of “retail irrelevance,” as Nat B. Read claims it to be in his letter to the editor (“Sears store is an outdated model,” Mailbag, Dec. 29). We found just what we wanted in one local stop, at a fair price, and took it home that evening, after leaving more money in Glendale for dinner. Their building could use a more attractive, pedestrian-friendly entrance on Central, for sure, and maybe some windows or murals, but would Read's rather ghoulish hope that they go belly-up be good for downtown Glendale?

Two local elementary schools are in the lead pack of candidates for a $50,000 grant that administrators say could go a long way in improving student life and classroom learning. For a chance at winning the grant sponsored by Clorox, the schools must garner enough public votes by way of text messages or online by Dec. 19. In Burbank, parents and educators at Bret Harte Elementary are competing against 400 schools to invest in their arts program. When Bret Harte students produce shows to a standing-room only audience in the 71-year-old auditorium, the sweltering heat can put a cramp on the event, according to Principal Sheari Taylor.

Local hospitals on Thursday roundly endorsed the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to uphold President Obama's Affordable Care Act. With the cloud of uncertainty all but wiped away, representatives said the focus would turn to preparing for the future. The court ruled 5 to 4 to uphold Obama's Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, including the most contentious issue - the requirement that nearly all Americans have insurance by 2014 or pay a tax penalty. As Democrats applauded and Republicans bashed the landmark decision, hospitals declared the ruling a victory for patients and expanded access to healthcare.

The first decade of the 21st century is coming to a close. For you, what has been the most memorable experience so far this decade? What advice can you share with our readers to make this new year and decade a prosperous one? ? For me, the most significant thing that happened was the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in 2001. We are still feeling the effects of that attack, whether we?re flying on an airplane or staying at home. That attack ? as well as the attempted terrorist attack Christmas Day ?

Pope Benedict XVI recently launched the first ever Vatican YouTube channel. The channel will carry liturgical events, audiences with the pope and other papal activities. Benedict said that “wise” use of such technologies helps promote the search for “the true, the good and the beautiful” across borders and ethnic divisions. How important do you believe technology is to the evangelist of the 21st century? How do you use technology in your own church? Historically, the church has been slow to embrace technology.
