This is also a way to engage the community. Torres is the director of Los Danzantes De Aztlan of Fresno State, the university's dance program.

(Fresno Bee © 03/18/2017)
Vainglory can also, I think, undermine empathy. Last week Michele Borba spoke about her insightful book Unselfie, at a conference sponsored by Fresno State's Bonner Center for Character Education. Borba argues that the selfie culture encourages narcissism and undermines empathy.

Relax, the recent Mount Etna eruptions are completely normal
(USA Today © 03/18/2017)
Mt. Etna blew its top this week, injuring several tourists and reporters as it spewed lava hundreds of feet into the air above Sicily. But experts say there's nothing to worry about. As Europe's largest and most active volcano, Etna has been erupting on and off for millennia. It's erupted at least three times already this year. "It's not unusual for Etna to erupt," said volcanologist Keith Putirka of [California State University, Fresno]. "Mt. Etna is one of the most active volcanoes on the planet, and has been active for perhaps a half million years."
