Filipino American Scholar Dawn Mabalon Leaves Us at Age 46
ASIAN AMERICAN LEGAL DEFENSE AND EDUCATION FUND -- I’m crestfallen, recovering from the news that my friend Dawn Mabalon, a tenured professor and scholar in U.S. History at San Francisco State University, specializing in Filipinos in the American Labor movement, has died.

Dawn was a bright, energetic ball of fire who took American Filipinos and U.S. history and fused it with an activist's passion that empowered the ignored and enlightened the ignorant.

Community Mourns Death of Historian and Author, Dawn Mabalon
ASIAN JOURNAL (GLENDALE) -- She was an associate professor of history at San Francisco State University, specializing in Philippine and Filipino-American history, as well as race and ethnicity and food cultures.

A third-generation Pinay, Mabalon was born and raised in Stockton, where her grandfathers settled in the 1920s. Stockton was home to the largest population of Filipinos outside of the Philippines from the 1920s to 1960s.

“Dawn had represented the best of Stockton and she will be missed very much,” Lange Luntao, a Little Manila Foundation board member, told The Record. “Her research on the Filipino/a neighborhoods and community members in Stockton inspired scholars from around the world and put on the map in a positive way. There’s a lot of work to do to continue her legacy and highlight Stockton’s rich and diverse history.”

Instructor Andrew Fraknoi Discusses NASA's First-Ever Mission to the Sun
KQED-FM, FORUM (SAN FRANCISCO) -- Andrew Fraknoi is professor of astronomy, San Francisco State's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and the University of San Francisco's Fromm Institute. He is emeritus chair of the Astronomy program at Foothill College.

“The surface of the sun is a seething hot mess of not just gas but magnetic fields — strong, strong magnetism in the sun, which roils the solar outside,” Fraknoi says. “And so there’s a wind coming from the sun, a regular blowing out of particles, which go by the Earth at a million miles per hour.

“There are also explosions on the sun, when the magnetism is suddenly let go. And so there’s a huge stream of particles. These are called coronal mass ejections. And if they’re big enough they can actually interfere with communications on Earth, with the power grid. So we want to monitor the sun better.“

Professor Dollinger: 'BlacKkKlansman' Recalls the Possibilities of a Black-Jewish Alliance
JEWISH TELEGRAPHIC AGENCY -- Marc Dollinger holds the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Chair in Jewish Studies and Social Responsibility at San Francisco State University and is author, most recently, of “Black Power, Jewish Politics: Reinventing The Alliance In The 1960s.” He wrote this opinion piece for the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

“In a break from the classic interracial motif of more-powerful Jews helping less-powerful blacks, ‘BlacKkKlansman’ places Jewish detective Zimmerman, as well as the other white police officers in his unit, in supporting roles,” Dollinger writes. “Stallworth, acknowledging white privilege as he impersonates Zimmerman’s voice in telephone calls with the KKK, lobbies his Jewish colleague to impersonate him in face-to-face meetings with Klansmen.

“By redefining the black-Jewish relationship in this more Afrocentric way, Lee corrects a historical literature that all too often marginalized African-Americans in their own social justice movement. He takes an approach similar to ‘Selma’ director Ava DuVernay, who was unfairly criticized by many Jewish viewers when she did not include an iconic image of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel in her movie.”

Professor Pahnke: Our Farmers Don't Want Handouts
SHELBY STAR ()/TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE -- Anthony Pahnke ( is the vice president of Family Farm Defenders and an assistant professor of International Relations at San Francisco State University. This column was distributed by Tribune News Service.

“Trump’s $12 billion bailout may help a few farmers, but only for the short term. What about next year? Family farms are not quick startups, but enterprises that are built upon generations of experience.

“My grandfather, if he were alive today, would not be surprised to find farmers still gambling with the weather and the market. But he would be shocked to see the president of the United States apparently working to rig the game against them.”

Family, Friends Still Trying to Make Sense of Professor Mabalon's Death
STOCKTON RECORD -- In addition to her work as a professor, Mabalon was a published author. “Little Manila Is In The Heart,” published in 2013, is a definitive history of the neighborhood’s rise and fall. Students at San Francisco State created buttons in Mabalon’s memory after learning of her death. The buttons say, “Dawn Mabalon Is in the Heart.”

Mabalon’s mother, 70-year-old Christine Bohulano Bloch, remembered Tuesday the whip-smart young girl who loved books and reading from an early age and grew up to be a professor and a published writer on the Filipino experience.

“She wanted to make changes, she wanted to help people,” Bohulano Bloch said. “She was an activist. She wanted to do whatever she could to help people.”

Allyson Tintiango-Cubales, a fellow professor with Mabalon at California State University, San Francisco, added, “Dawn was more than a best friend to me. She was like my sister. My family is grieving alongside her family.”

Mabalon had been scheduled to be in Washington, D.C., at the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights late this week to give a presentation on Filipino-American history and its intersection with civil rights.

“She was at as many events as she possibly could be at if they had to do with Filipino-Americans and people of color,” Tintiango-Cubales said. “She wanted to make sure that people knew what she believed.”

Mabalon did give her readers, a vivid and comprehensive representation of post-colonial Filipino life in the U.S. in her book, “Little Manila is in the Heart: The Making of the Filipina/o American Community in Stockton, California.”

Stockton's Filipino Community Honors Late Professor, Author Dawn Mabalon
KTXL-CHANNEL 40 (SACRAMENTO) -- Mabalon was born and raised in Stockton and was an associate professor of History at San Francisco State University, specializing in Philippine and Filipino American history.

“The sense of arts and culture always was with her as she grew up and she became more actively involved with the Filipino causes,” said Val Acoba.

Acoba had known Malabon since Dawn was around 10 years old and watched as she graduated from Edison High School before becoming the co-founder of the Little Manila Foundation in Stockton. Mabalon also wrote two books about Filipino American history, including “Filipinos in Stockton.”

“She will always be remembered for being positive and spreading the news about Filipino culture and Filipino Americans,” Acoba expressed. “I think she touched many, many, many people and these people will carry that spark on.”

Through a Dashboard Darkly – Brain of Buildchimp – Curated Selections from the Voices in My Head

This is a story of a flawed development process on top of a flawed infrastructure, without the necessary data to drive decision-making. It’s also a story of waking up to these problems and charting a way out.

Worth noting:

The funny thing about reasoning with incomplete or irrelevant information is that it’s hard to be objective; it’s hard to tell from motivated reasoning and outright justification.

Although, we're almost always working without complete information....
