Earlier Presidential Primaries in California’s Future AND What the Prochlorococcus?

While California considers different ways to lead nationally, State Assembly Speaker pro Tem Kevin Mullin (D-San Mateo), adroitly working both sides of the aisle, posts us on AB 84, which would move California’s presidential primary from June to March. SB 568 is a similar measure moving through the State Senate.  Each chamber is considering the other chamber’s bill before submitting legislation for Governor Brown’s signature.

In the second segment (min 29:10), UCI earth system scientist and microbiologist Adam Martiny presents his research pertaining to marine bacteria and how it relates to global climate change. He also speaks in advance of moderating a panel at conference hosted this week at UCI, “Headwaters to Ocean.” Budding scientists are welcome to check out research opportunities at the Martiny Lab, https://www.ess.uci.edu/group/amartiny/adam-martiny-lab.
