The week before last, the city of Berkeley took time to honor two of its citizens. Laura Stachel and her husband Hal Aronson were issued with a proclamation and words of praise from Mayor Tom Bates and Councilmember Linda Maio, among others, at the April 3 meeting of the City Council. The following night, PBS Newshour ran an eight-minute segment on the couple’s work (watch it below). Six months ago, Diane Sawyer introduced Stachel as “Person of the Week” on ABC World News Tonight. Also in October, the pair appeared on CBS after winning the Nokia Tech Awards as part of the San Jose Tech Museum Tech Awards.
An exhausted pelican landed on a field at UC Berkeley in early April. No one knew had to help her until extension student Mara Guccione, who volunteers at the International Bird Rescue, wandered by.
UC Berkeley students have embraced the traditional Holi Festival which sees Hindus in India, Pakistan and Nepal, among others, celebrate the arrival of spring in a riot of color. Saturday on campus, hundreds of them gladly allowed themselves to be drenched both with colored powders and water. Luckily for Berkeleyside, Michael Armbrust was on hand to take the photographs shown here.
