A few Odds and Ends from the past week:

  • Congressman Darrell Issa comments on the proposed Federal Bailout of Wall Street at FlashReport
  • In a brief but particularly interesting quote, Senator Hillary Clinton appears to have called for a second coming of the New Deal in response to the current financial crunch in an interview with CBS New York.
  • A new clean-air energy technology that’s been in the works for years has seen a successful debut, as Germany fired up the world’s first Clean Coal power plant this week.
  • New University of California President Mark Yudof has wasted little time in determining the state of the UC system. The University recently released its ‘accountability framework’, a compilation of statistics relating to all UC campuses intended to provide a better understanding of the University as a whole. An article in today’s San Jose Mercury summarizes some of what the report found.
