Jerry Brown has appointed Pasadena lawyer Theresa M. Traber as one of seven new judges at the Los Angeles County Superior Court. She fills the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Steven D. Ogden.Traber, 59, is a civil rights and employment lawyer who has been a founding partner at Pasadena’s Traber and Voorhees since 1991. During her legal career, she has handled mostly individual and class action lawsuits alleging employment and housing discrimination and class-wide violations of wage and hour protections under federal and state law.In addition, Traber has handled cases alleging assorted violations of constitutional rights, including police abuse and misconduct by U.S. military installations and other federal entities.Traber’s recent work has focused on class action wage and hour litigation on behalf of low-wage and middle-income workers and on international human rights litigation.Traber is a Lawyer Representative to the Ninth Judicial Conference and a member of the Merit Selection Panel for the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.For the last ten years, she has been recognized as one of Southern California’s Super Lawyers and, in 2004, as one of the top 50 female lawyers in Southern California by Los Angeles Magazine and Law and Politics Magazine.In 2001, the Trial Lawyers for Public Justice Foundation honored Traber and her co-counsel as finalists for Public Interest Trial Lawyers of the Year for their work in Doe v.

Credit: Credit: Lance Hayashida/Caltech Office of Strategic CommunicationsMicrosoft founder and billionaire philanthropist visited Caltech on October 20 to learn about research being conducted in several labs on campus; to catch up with former Harvard classmate Caltech President Thomas Rosenbaum; and to participate in a question-and-answer session, moderated by professor of English and Dean of Undergraduate Students Kevin Gilmartin, with Caltech students at the Beckman Auditorium. We caught up with him after the event to discuss science, giving, and the value of a broad education.Why did you choose to visit Caltech, and why now?I tend to visit top universities. I always admire the work being done here, and a good friend of mine, [Caltech trustee] Ron Olsen, encouraged me to come to Caltech. It’s always energizing to hear about the science.In your meetings with faculty today, what did you find most interesting and inspiring, particularly as it relates to the work of your foundation?All of the biology stuff I saw was in line with the Foundation’s huge global health program. Cystic fibrosis is not a disease we work on, but [in the lab of Dianne Newman, Gordon M. Binder/Amgen Professor of Biology and Geobiology], they’re working on bacterial infections. The insights she has on bacterial infections are of great interest to us. For example, we talked about tuberculosis, which is a huge program area for us. Some of the new approaches she’s invented— including being able to make things more visible and how you get viruses in—are going to be helpful to us.And then, some of it was more basic, like the optogenetics, which was super impressive, or looking at the mitochondria and understanding how deficits in mitochondria affect various disease including neurological and other aging disorders.I’m personally investing in energy and I’ve known Nate Lewis [George L. Argyros Professor of Chemistry at Caltech] for a long time, so I got an update on the work he’s doing on solar fuels.On your blog, you called on leaders to invest in great research institutions. What role do you think that institutions like Caltech can play in solving the great challenges facing humanity today?Caltech’s doing an amazing job. It’s a real gem, and it’s able to be so ambitious partly because of the government research budgets and the philanthropy, but the government research budgets are the biggest parts of it. Caltech is able to attract top scientists and it’d be great if government research allowed Caltech to be more ambitious.Nate Lewis and I went through a lot of things he’d be able to do if he had more research money. He and I were brainstorming about whether startups could, or should, do any part of that, and what trends are likely with energy research funding. The U.S. has been the best, even though the U.S. should do more. People complain appropriately that energy research funding hasn’t gone up much recently, but compared to other countries it’s much higher. The benefits are pretty dramatic.In the Q&A, you talked about the transition from being someone who was focused on technology and computers to someone with a broader world-view. As STEM educators, how can we make sure that we provide a solid STEM education to help these students become the scientists and engineers of the future, but also make sure to give them that broad world view?It’s a super important thing. In the Harvard curriculum—that’s where I was a dropout—they divided the world into three things: natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities, and forced you to take a diverse set across all three. I’m a natural scientist—I was in applied mathematics in my failed undergraduate career—or “early terminated.” “Failed” is a little too dramatic because my grades were quite good. The way their system worked, it was harder to know other sciences, so all my natural science time had to be in applied math.Now I was a strange case. I audited as many courses as I was signed up for, and I never attended the course that I was signed up for—I attended the one I was auditing. So I got to go to a lot of courses and get a lot of diversity. But you have to be careful with trying to push people. The thing that works best is grabbing their interest.I’ve worked with a guy named David Christian on a project called Big History. It was a college course, and I worked with him to turn it into a 9th-grade course. It provides a broad framework of how everything fits together. All your other knowledge can fit into that framework and it doesn’t wind up being disconnected and endless and confusing. I think people are more intellectually ambitious if they start to see the bridges between different pieces of knowledge.When you speak to students like this, you’re talking to the next generation of scientists and engineers—maybe even the next Bill Gates. What message do you want them to walk away with?Well, there is an irony that I went back to Harvard and gave a speech and Mark Zuckerberg was in the audience [laughs]. Now, I don’t claim it had an influence on him, and he and I are good friends, but it was kind of a funny thing.I do think it helped me that I could read about business careers or science careers where people had been wildly ambitious and managed to do well. [Caltech Professor of Physics and Nobel Laureate] Richard Feynman was somebody who I admired. He gave a series of lectures at Cornell, called the Messenger Series, that are aimed at people who are not scientists and which try to explain what science is and why it’s fun and interesting. It’s just brilliant.Hopefully I can encourage people to be ambitious. When you’re young, you often see things that other people don’t see. A ton of the creativity comes out of people in their 20s or 30s. And in this case, they’re at one of the best institutions in the world. It’s an amazing thing. And the institution is amazing at picking the right people to come, so their capabilities are pretty incredible. 3 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Community News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Make a comment EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Business Newscenter_img Community News Your email address will not be published.

In the second quarter, consumer debt levels are approaching $15.7 trillion compared with $14.7 trillion a decade ago, the study found. Yet, mortgages make up a small part of it.Unlike the last high in 2008, this time around, mortgages make up for a lesser share of total household debt even though they comprise the largest amount of debt. “As measured by a percentage of disposable income, outstanding mortgages comprise less of a liability,” the LendingTree study noted.Current levels of mortgage balances consist of around 68 percent of disposable income while credit card balances are less than 7 percent of income. In 2008, balances were as high as 98 percent and 10 percent, respectively.“While nominal total debt levels now exceed 2008 levels, households are much better situated to handle debt then they were a decade ago,” the study said. The current mortgage balances levels have also resulted in rising home equity, the study found. “Homeowners today, on average, have significant equity in their homes. Ten years ago, equity was virtually nonexistent,” LendingTree said.In fact, household net worth as measured by the Federal Reserve Financial Accounts, reached $100 trillion for the first time last quarter. The study noted that assets, which primarily consisted of financial instruments and real estate gained more than $1.07 trillion in the first quarter, outpacing the additional debt that Americans accumulated.“Nonetheless, liabilities have been steadily increasing in recent years. But unlike a decade ago, mortgages aren’t the culprit,” LendingTree said. Instead, non-mortgage related debt such as student loans, credit cards, and auto loans have been growing. “By the end of the second quarter of 2018, we’ll have $1 trillion more in household debt than we did in 2008 and none of it is attributable to housing,” LendingTree said.According to the study, mortgage-related household debt has fallen by 5.5 percent since the third quarter of 2008. On the other hand, consumer credit has increased by 45 percent. The study found that while credit card debts were still low, student loan debts were growing the fastest rising 130 percent since 2008.

He named the selections.Jennifer Shirk remains as president of the board, Fred Marcell continues as vice president and Connie Pritchard stays on as treasurer. Lauren Cowden replaces Ron Denney as board secretary.Shirk, an author, has been president of the board since 2014. She noted that she enjoys serving on the board.“Thank you again for nominating me as president for another year,” Shirk said. “I thank you for your support. I will be putting together committees for the next board meeting.”She added that there is a new Board of Trustees member, who will replace Dustin Peters on the board. The position is on the City Council agenda for approval Thursday night.Shirk did not say the member’s name, but said she would be announced soon.She also said that Broadley is on the agenda for reappointment.“They will both be on the agenda for Thursday,” Shirk said. “I spoke with the new board member. She was very nice and will make an excellent trustee.”Also on the agenda, OCFPL Director Karen Mahar said that the library would remain open and continue with its limited service unless things change with the pandemic.Shirk said that was a good course to follow.The library will continue to offer limited hours while staff members adhere to COVID-19 safety measures.The library, located inside in the Ocean City Community Center, has been operating with limited hours with all safety protocols in place.Mahar said that at least for now, the library will continue with the current, shortened hours of operation. The hours are Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and extended curbside hours Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.Since the library reopened after the initial COVID-19 state shutdown on public buildings in the spring, the library has installed features to strictly adhere to safety requirements, including Plexiglas dividers, hand-sanitizing stations and self-checkout stations.In other business, Mahar said she spoke with the new director of the Ocean City Historical Museum, Kate Devaney.She said the two met this week. “I think she will be a real asset to the museum,” Mahar said.The position has been vacant since the former executive director, Jeffrey Granahan, left the post at the end of 2019.In addition to the Historical Museum, Devaney will oversee the museum at the Life-Saving Station at Fourth Street and Atlantic Avenue, as well as the Lifeguard Museum located within the Bayside Center at 520 Bay Ave.The Historical Museum, which is located in the Community Center, has been closed amid the pandemic.“I know there is a delay to opening to the public, but we have a meeting set up to help them with virtual programming for the spring,” Mahar explained of plans for the library to work with the museum.She also said the library has reached out to help the museum staff and volunteers who have been working to reconfigure the museum and offer new exhibits and improve existing ones.“We have offered up some shelving to the museum,” Mahar said. “I think it will help them with organizing.”The museum remains closed while new exhibits and improvements to old ones take shape behind the scenes.
