I've had a few new stories published this year already, some of which have been a few months in the making. The first, and biggest, is a look at diversity initiatives at Google and how well they are -- or aren't -- working. You can read it over at Fast Company.
I also recently attended some of the 40-hour training that San Francisco Police Officers receive in crisis intervention and de-escalation techniques. You can read about it in the SF Weekly. And, in light of new research showing that the Fruitvale district in Oakland has higher levels of lead toxicity in kids than Flint, Michigan, I wrote about a stalled court case that would provide money to decontaminate the city.
