News Panel: SF Symphony on Strike, City College, and more

Will City College of San Francisco make the grade and keep its accreditation? The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges has recommended fourteen controversial changes which include layoffs, financial reform, and campus closures. Friday is the deadline for the embattled college to turn in its report showing how the suggested reforms have been and will be implemented.

San Francisco Symphony musicians went on strike this week, putting an upcoming high profile tour to the East Coast in jeopardy. Without a contract since February, the union representing the performers says management's new proposals are not on par with comparable orchestras, like those in Los Angeles and Chicago.

California's top judge, Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, made the case before state lawmakers this week to restore funding to the courts. More than $1 billion in cuts over the past five years has resulted in court closures, reduced hours and layoffs. Gov. Brown's budget this year would reduce court construction funds by $200 million.

Iraq War in Pictures

On the eve of the 10th anniversary of the American-led invasion of Iraq, an exhibit of photographs at the De Young Museum in San Francisco takes an intimate look at the impact of war on Iraqi citizens. From young boys rehearsing a play about martyrdom to men playing dominoes at dusk, the images in "Eye Level in Iraq" offer a glimpse into everyday life as captured by photojournalists Kael Alford and Thorne Anderson. The museum's chief curator Julian Cox talks about the role of art and journalism and what he hopes viewers will take away from the exhibition.
