    Beach Weekly S12E14: On-campus pro-Palestine protest, civil war in Sudan & more

    Beach Weekly S12E14: On-campus pro-Palestine protest, civil war in Sudan & more

    In this semester's final Beach Weekly episode, host Lei Madrigal discusses last week's on-campus pro-Palestine protest with Daily Forty-Niner news assistant Linsey Towles, a civil war in Sudan and more.

    Head to the USU Beach Auditorium on Monday, May 6 for a free screening of the new movie, “Bob Marley: One Love.” Showings will be from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The event is reserved for Long Beach State students and free popcorn will be available while supplies last. There will also be opportunities to win AMC gift cards and more.

    This week is Graduate Spirit Week, with many events to celebrate graduating students. Monday and Thursday are cap-decorating days, on Tuesday, students will gather to talk about life after graduation, and on Wednesday, there will be free boba. All events will take place within the Shakarian Student Success Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Dream Success Center Room 290.

    CSULB Housing is hosting a virtual Off-Campus Housing Fair on May 8 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Participants will meet local apartment managers and other students looking for roommates. Registration can be completed on the Events & Orgs app to receive the Zoom link.

    In an interview with Daily Forty-Niner news assistant Linsey Towles, the pair discuss the pro-Palestine protest that occurred on campus last week. The protest, organized by a collection of on-campus student activism groups, was part of a nationwide demonstration of advocacy for Palestine. Linsey Towles provided details about how the protest affected campus, where and when it happened and more.

    ASI senators issued a vote of no confidence for ASI president Mitali Jain on March 29. Student leaders expressed concerns with Jain’s failure to fulfill campaign promises, specifically advocacy towards cultural resource centers, such as La F.U.E.R.Z.A and the Queer Students’ Alliance. The late timing of the no-confidence vote so far into the semester has sparked debate about the effectiveness of a possible recall election.

    Around 2 a.m. on April 26, the University Police Department was alerted to an armed robbery on campus. Two suspects, a male and a female, confronted a man who was standing by his car in the G8 parking lot. According to UPD, the male suspect displayed a gun and told the man to give him the keys to his white BMW. Both suspects left the scene in the stolen car.

    Long Beach city officials have issued a public health emergency after a tuberculosis outbreak has left one person dead and nine hospitalized. The city Department of Health and Human Services claims the outbreak is very unlikely to affect the general public. According to the announcement, the risk of exposure is limited to people with “significant barriers to care, including homelessness and housing insecurity.”

    In a Wisconsin village about 23 miles from Madison, police shot and killed a 14-year-old male student who brought a gun near a middle school last Wednesday. The student never entered the school. The incident led to a lockdown of the school for several hours and schools in the district were closed the following day.

    Western Sudan has been experiencing a civil war between the Sudanese army and the paramilitary group, Rapid Support Forces, since April 2023. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, over 8.7 million people have been displaced by the war. They have also issued warnings about the risk of widespread starvation and death.

    Teed Up S3E14: Do our bosses know ball

    Teed Up S3E14: Do our bosses know ball

    In Season 3 Episode 14 of Teed Up, hosts Matthew Gomez and Naoki Gima quiz the Daily Forty-Niner's Editor-in-Chief, Christal Gaines-Emory and Multimedia Managing Editor, El Nicklin, in this quiz-heavy episode of Teed Up.

    The hosts Naoki Gima and Matty G put their bosses through a gauntlet of Teed Up trivia questions and sport-related quizzes. These quizzes test the duo's knowledge of sports terminology and whether they know some of the more uniquely named athletes.

    With neither guest being particularly sports savvy, the questions lead to hesitance, laughter and plenty of guessing. Then, closing remarks and compliments are given by the editors on how far the podcast has come during its three seasons.

    Each year, the Long Beach Acura Grand Prix attracts over 200,000 fans to the streets of downtown Long Beach throughout the event. This year’s Grand Prix, which ran from April 18 until April 21, is estimated to have generated $33 million in revenue and created about 600 jobs in the city. 43-year-old Scott Dixon, a driver from New Zealand, won this year’s Grand Prix.

    Pro-Palestinian encampment protests at numerous universities across the country like Emory University, UCLA, UC Berkeley, Harvard and more are speaking out against the war in Israel. Students nationwide demand that their universities cut ties with Israel-linked entities and divest from Israeli corporations.

    Artist Banter S4E7: The moral implications of A.I. in art (ft. Kaitlyn Smith)

    In this episode of Artist Banter, host Julia Goldman virtually meets with Arizona-based artist, photographer and educator Kaitlyn Smith.

    In 2020, Smith created her piece, "Lights Out," which used an A.I. model to examine 50,000 images of construction workers on Facebook. The piece displays the A.I.'s interpretation of the American workforce through 60,000 deepfakes that were displayed in linear, rotating photo reels.

    Smith explains the process of creating "Lights Out," and the two discuss the possibilities, misunderstandings, moral questions and future of artificial intelligence in art.

    To check out Smith's previous works, and follow along in her artistic projects and galleries, check out her Instagram @kaitlynjosmith and her website.
