Charles Ornstein appears on Los Angeles TV news station KTLA

Pulitzer prize winning LA Times journalist Charles Ornstein (C’96, Daily Pennsylvanian Executive Editor) just broke yet another story. This time it's inside UCLA Medical Center, a premiere Los Angeles hospital where Britney Spears' medical records were probed unnecessarily and illegally by 25 employees (including doctors). Thirteen of them were fired, another 12 disciplined.

Check out his coverage!

As mentioned above, Charles won a Pulitzer prize back in 2005. He was part of the team that won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for its coverage of King/Drew Medical Center, which closed down after failing many federal inspections.

Read his award winning coverage

On a related note, Charles works with Daniel Costello (C'95), another Penn journalist alum at the LA Times covering health business.

For my second installment in my "Funny Friday" series, Danish Rhythm's Spencer Crawford (C'05, Mask and Wig) and Gary Lundy (C'05, Mask and Wig) debate getting a piano tuned...with deadly consequences. Trust me when I say you'll watch this video and get strangely, yet pleasantly drawn in...

Click here to check out this very funny video

Speaking of Danish Rhythm, I recently went to see their monthly live show and it was very funny. Danish Rhythm definitely has a refreshingly absurd sense of humor that gets me invested from the very beginning of their bits. Watch this space for videos from the show! (Their next Los Angeles show is Monday, March 24. More info here.)

Chelsea Clinton


Last week, Chelsea Clinton came to Penn's Wynn Commons (outside of Houston Hall) to rally Penn undergrads to support her mom. She seems to be really close to everyone! Can someone say security?

It seems like the whole Clinton clan is coming to Penn. A few weeks ago Bill came to speak and just yesterday Hillary came to Philadelphia for an exciting rally.

On the afternoon of her visit to Los Angeles in early February (here and here), President Amy Gutmann gave a lecture entitled "Great Expectations for Higher Education in the 21st Century" at USC as part of the 30th annual Pullias lecture series. (The Pullias Lecture is "the oldest endowed higher education lecture series in the world." )

The very cool part of this is that Dr. Gutmann donated her honorarium to fund 3 students in USC's summertime pre-college enrichment program for low income and students of color. She's a mensch!

Watch Dr. Gutmann's speech here (starting at minute 11:50)

Journalist and writer Jordana Horn, (C'95/L'99, Executive Editor of the DP, current '95 Class President) is hoping to rally the support of Penn alumni and undergrads for a fantastic cause.

Madness Against Malaria is a fun, international competition to identify the team that is best at raising funds to buy long-lasting insecticidal (mosquito) nets (LLINs) to help in the fight against malaria. In the time it will take you to read this post (30 seconds), one more child in Africa will have died from malaria. It's particularly horrible because it's so easy to prevent: bednets, which cost $5 each (just about the price of a venti frappucino), are almost 100% effective in preventing malaria. That's where Madness Against Malaria comes in.

Per Jordana:
"I read so many stories about the genocide of apathy - of 7 jumbo jets full of children disappearing because of malaria every day. I felt that it was unconscionable to read these stories, be horrified by them and then do nothing about it. So after reading an article in the New York Times on Lance Laifer, a hedge fund manager who'd started an anti-malaria campaign, I contacted him to see what I could do. When he asked me to start up a Penn team, I jumped at the opportunity. ...$5 literally saves children's lives. Plus you get to kick some Princeton ass in the process. Let's win this thing, people. Right now, Yale is beating us. That is just embarrassing."

Join the Penn team here!
