    The Koza Uprising and the Okinawa Memories Initiative Program with Alan Christy and Cameron Vanderscoff

    The Koza Uprising and the Okinawa Memories Initiative Program with Alan Christy and Cameron Vanderscoff

    In this podcast, Alan Christy, professor of history at UCSC and Director of the Okinawa Memories Initiative, and Cameron Vanderscoff, co-Director Oral History of the the Okinawa Memories Initiative talk about the upcoming event, Revisiting The Koza Uprising in Global Perspectives.
    Fifty years ago this December, Okinawan protests against US military rule turned violent for the first and, so far, only time. On the anniversary, the Okinawa Memories Initiative will host a public discussion about the “Koza Riots,” featuring an eyewitness photojournalist, an American army veteran who had been stationed in Okinawa and two Okinawan American scholars reflecting on race and the meaning of the event fifty years on in the days of Black Lives Matter.
    This event is sponsored by the Humanities Istititute. Revisiting The Koza Uprising in Global Perspectives is happening December 19 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm. It is a Virtual Event, free and open to the public.

    Rebecca DuBois

    This interview is with Rebecca Dubois, UCSC Assistant Professor in BioMolecular Engineering and Founder and Director of the DuBois Lab. Her lab seeks to understand the molecular mechanisms of virus infections, and to use this information to develop new vaccines and antiviral therapeutics.  Her lab is an example of the many ways in which researchers at UC Santa Cruz are responding to the COVID-19 crisis.
    The Dubois Lab is researching immunologic testing, which involves detecting antibodies in blood samples to show if someone has been exposed to the coronavirus, could be one way in managing the pandemic. Antibody tests require coronavirus antigens, these are the proteins on the surface of the virus that trigger an immune response. DuBois’ lab has the ability to make those antigens. After learning that these antigens were in short supply, she began production and will provide them for use by other researchers through a national repository maintained by the National Institutes of Health.
    Please join us to hear more about Protein engineering for technology and therapeutics particularly with the Novel Corona Virus 19.

    Ryan Coonerty, Community and the Corona Virus

    SANTA CRUZ –The County of Santa Cruz Public Health Division is announcing additional cases of COVID-19, for a total of seven. Many more people have been tested in recent days, and more cases are expected. Santa Cruz County Public Health is in daily contact and is actively monitoring all cases. The County of Santa Cruz is now considered to have community spread. “We have shifted our efforts away from containment and towards mitigation,” Health Officer Dr. Gail Newel said. “We continue to work closely with our regional, state and national partners in our efforts to lessen the impact of COVID-19.” Dr. Newel has issued social distancing and workplace guidelines

    .In addition, Gov. Gavin Newsom has issued statewide directives on public gatherings, available here. As of Thursday morning, California Department of Public Health officials have identified a total of 198 COVID-19 cases statewide, including four deaths. With Santa Cruz County considered a moderate risk community, guidance on community mitigation strategies can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/community-mitigation-strategy.pdf.

    Additional updated guidance can be found on the California Department of Public Health website at: https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/Guidance.aspx. Santa Cruz County residents are strongly urged to take measures to protect themselves, their families and their community.

    To protect public health and slow the rate of transmission of COVID-19, gatherings as described below should be postponed or canceled across the state of California for at least the remainder of the month of March. The California Department of Public Health finds the following:
    • Large gatherings that include 250 people or more should be postponed or canceled.
     o This includes gatherings such as concerts, conferences, and professional, college, and school sporting events.
    • Smaller gatherings held in venues that do not allow social distancing of six feet per person should be postponed or canceled.
     o This includes gatherings in crowded auditoriums, rooms or other venues.
    • Gatherings of individuals who are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 should be limited to no more than 10 people.
    o This includes gatherings such as those at retirement facilities, assisted living facilities, developmental homes, and support groups for people with health conditions.
     • A “gathering” is any event or convening that brings together people in a single room or single space at the same time, such as an auditorium, stadium, arena, large conference room, meeting hall, cafeteria, or any other indoor or outdoor space.

    This applies to all non-essential professional, social, and community gatherings regardless of their sponsor. Gatherings that do not meet the aforementioned criteria should only be conducted when they are essential—that is, if the activity is essential and could not be postponed or achieved without gathering, meaning that some other means of communication could not be used to conduct the essential function.

    What will this achieve? The timely implementation of aggressive strategies that create social distance and those that reduce close contact of people not regularly together, including limiting gatherings, has proven effective in prior pandemics at delaying rates of transmi
