    Beach Weekly S9E5: Masks, Conoley's raise, rising gas prices, new special issue & more

    Beach Weekly S9E5: Masks, Conoley's raise, rising gas prices, new special issue & more

    In an email sent out last Monday, Long Beach State President Jane Close Conoley announced that the university has officially lifted its in-class mask requirement. Masks are now strongly recommended in indoor campus settings, but will not be enforced. Beach community members are asked to continue self-monitoring for COVID-19 related symptoms, and to respect the choice of students and staff members who continue to wear facial coverings.

    President Conoley received a 28% salary raise from the California State University Board of Trustees. Her raise starkly contrasts hat of faculty members, who received a 3% this year. Long Beach State faculty members and students are expressing their discontent with President Conoley's raise, and are raising questions about the allocation of university funds. We spoke to the Daily Forty-Niner's News Assistant, Vincent Medina, for more on the story.

    While gas prices are falling nationally, they are on the rise again in California. State officials are putting the blame for the high prices on oil companies, though production problems at refineries, high industry regulations, and California's state gas tax are all contributing factors. Some California residents will begin to receive inflation relief payments in the coming weeks as a part of Governor Gavin Newsom's $11 billion inflation relief package. To quality for a relief payment, residents must have filed income tax in California and earn less than $500,000 a year.

    The last two remaining candidates for Long Beach mayor, Rex Richardson and Suzie Price, are scheduled to participate in a forum in the USU Beach Auditorium this Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 5:30pm on the Long Beach State campus. The one-hour forum, hosted by ASI and the Long Beach League of Women Voters, is free to enter and open to all members of the public. The Daily Forty-Niner's latest print issue is out today! Focused on graduate school, this issue tackles an array of topics from dealing with anxiety about graduate school to advice on succeeding in graduate school. Whether you are in grad school, are interested in attending, or know someone who is, be sure to pick up a copy at one of the newsstands located on campus.

    Beach Weekly S9E4: Fine Arts students protest building conditions, Tropical Storm Kay hits and Queen Elizabeth II dies

    Beach Weekly S9E4: Fine Arts students protest building conditions, Tropical Storm Kay hits and Queen Elizabeth II dies

    In Season 9: Episode 4 of Beach Weekly, we are taking a look at how recent weather events are impacting Long Beach State students, on-campus mask policies, and the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

    Southern California's record-breaking heatwave continued through last week, with temperatures reaching nearly 100 degrees on Long Beach State's campus. While all students are being affected by the extreme weather, Fine Arts students are experiencing it worse than most others. Buildings within the Fine Arts Department have lacked air conditioning since their construction in the 1950s, and Long Beach State has not attempted to improve building conditions amidst the recent heatwave.

    On Wednesday, Fine Arts students and faculty members staged a walkout of classes to protest the building conditions and demand action from the university. Daily Forty-Niner News Editor Hannah Shields provides more coverage of the walk-out and where the situation stands now for the Fine Arts Department.

    Tropical Storm Kay hit Southern California on Friday afternoon after traveling north along the coast from Baja California. Though initially categorized as a hurricane, Kay was downgraded to a tropical storm upon hitting California. An extremely rare occurrence, the storm brought rain, high winds, surf warnings, and slight flood damage in some areas.

    While many Long Beach State students and faculty members expected the in-class mask requirement to be lifted by now, the university has not mentioned any plans to do so. Mixed opinions are held about the policy, as mask-wearing is not required in many settings on campus and because Los Angeles County has not enforced indoor masking in most settings for several months. Long Beach State has not mentioned any plans of listing the mask policy for in-class settings.

    Queen Elizabeth II died last Thursday at the age of 96, after serving as Great Britain's monarch for more than 70 years. Though Queen Elizabeth worked to modernize British society and has seen the monarchy through the progress and turbulence of the last near-century, her legacy is laced with the reality of Britain's history of colonization and violent oppression of numerous Asian, African, Caribbean, and South American countries. Following Queen Elizabeth’s death, her son, Charles, has now been crowned King Charles III.

    Beach Weekly S9E3: The heatwave continues, new CA data privacy bill, Smorgasport & the QFilm Festival return

    Beach Weekly S9E3: The heatwave continues, new CA data privacy bill, Smorgasport & the QFilm Festival return

    In Season 9: Episode 3 of Beach Weekly, we are covering major state-wide topics and the return of two favorite Long Beach events.

    Southern California is now in its second full week of the largest heatwave of 2022. Though it is believed that the peak of the heatwave was experienced over Labor Day weekend, high temperatures will continue to be felt this week. Long Beach and Los Angeles will see temperatures into the 90s, while the Inland Empire is expected to see temperatures as high as 115 degrees.

    The heatwave has brought forth a slew of additional concerns across California. The Route Fire is continuing to rage near Castaic Lake, and has threatened neighborhoods and burned more than 5,000 acres of land. Rolling blackouts for the entire state may be looming in an effort by the California Independent System Operator to prevent the overtaxing of the state electrical grid. The state has been sending "Flex Alerts" to its residents' mobile devices to stress energy conservation in an effort to such prevent blackouts. At Long Beach State, the extreme heat has prompted some students to voice their concerns over insufficient air ventiliation on some parts of campus.

    Last Thursday, Sep. 2, the California Legislature passed bipartisan bill AB 2273 in an ettempt to protect the data privacy of minors online. The bill is the first of its kind in the nation, and is designed to regulate how social media and online platforms use data accumulted from users under the age of 18. AB 2273 is now being considered by Gov. Gavin Newsom, who has until Sep. 30 to veto the bill or sign it into law.

    Long Beach State's annual festival, Smorgasport, is being held for the first time in two years. The event is for Long Beach State students only, who only need to show their student identification cards and sign a waiver to enter. The festival will include carnival rides, a roller rink, laser tag, a maze, photo booths, food trucks, and much more. Smorgasport will be held from 6pm-10pm on Saturday, Sep. 10 in Parking Lots G3 and E1 on the Long Beach State campus. Students who are in need of disability-related accommodations for the event will need to complete the Bob Murphy Access Center Event Request Form.

    On Sep. 8-11, the Long Beach QFilm Festival will in downtown Long Beach. The QFilm Festival is the longest-running film festival in Long Beach, with 2022 being the 29th year of the festival. The QFilm Festival will feature independent documentaries, short films, and tributes about the diversity and experience of LGBTQ+ communities. Festival goers can purchase tickets online at qfilmslongbeach.com.

    Beach Weekly S9E2: Long Beach State hires new Athletics Director, Week of Welcome and Campus safety (ft. Kadie Gurley)

    Beach Weekly S9E2: Long Beach State hires new Athletics Director, Week of Welcome and Campus safety (ft. Kadie Gurley)

    For Season 9: Episode 2 of Beach Weekly, we are bringing you all the major headlines from the second week of the Fall 2022 semester.

    With the Fall semester now well underway, Long Beach State is experiencing an overall increase in student enrollement. According to the CSULB Office of Public Records, Long Beach State’s enrollment is now at 38,200 students. The rise of enrollment is due in part to the university's 30% decrease in online classes this semester as compared to Fall 2021.

    Long Beach State has announced that Ted Kadowaki will serve as the Interim Executive Director of Athletics starting on Sep. 1. Kadowaki will be filling the role vacated by Andy Fee, who was hired as Beach Athletics Director in April 2017. Kadowaki is expected to serve as the Interim Athletics Director through Summer 2023, at which point the university plans on recruiting a new permanent director.

    Week of Welcome will take place from 11am to 3pm on Aug. 30 and 31 along the Central Quad and Speaker's Platform. Beach Pride Events is anticipating the participation of 280 organizations, the largest turnout for Week of Welcome in recent years.

    With the persistence of COVID-19 cases and the recent rise of the monkeypox virus, questions are being raised about Long Beach State's campus safety policies. The university has not announced any policies related to the monkeypox virus, and there are doubts as to whether it will continue to enforce its current masking policy to reduce COVID-19 emission.
