California Today: California Today: Baby Falcons Take Flight in Berkeley

Last month, I moved with my family to Los Osos. We discovered the small coastal town after starting a house search in San Luis Obispo, the popular college town about 10 miles away, and then looked outward.Los Osos, population roughly 14,000, is surrounded by natural beauty. There’s Morro Bay, a playground of sea otters also known as the Gibraltar of the Pacific; the Elfin Forest, a sand dune landscape of miniature California live oaks; and Montana de Oro State Park, a jewel of the Central Coast.At the 12-square-mile park, hiking and biking trails open up to panoramas of rugged coastline every bit as spectacular as those in Big Sur.Yet the name Los Osos commonly elicits blank stares from Californians in other parts of the state.Antoinette Payne, a longtime real estate agent on the Central Coast, suggested that nearby cities like Pismo Beach and Cayucos enjoy greater recognition simply because, unlike Los Osos, they are visible from Highway 101 or the Pacific Coast Highway.“One of the nice things about Los Osos is that it’s kind of off the main track,” she said.That got us wondering: What are California’s other little-known treasures? It can be anything — a city, a beach, a park, a landmark.Tell us at CAtoday@nytimes.com, and please include your full name and city of residence.

California Today: California Today: Bringing Tax Anger to Governor’s Race

Triathlons come in many shapes and sizes.But a yearly Fourth of July event in Hermosa Beach may be among the only ones to make vomit a central feature.Known as the Hermosa Beach Ironman, competitors run a mile, paddle a mile on a surfboard, then drink a six-pack of beer. The first to finish without puking wins.During the chugging portion, a mosh pit forms in the sand with punk music blaring and hundreds of athletes howling and cavorting. Vomiting is everywhere.In a true Ironman, participants swim 2.4 miles, bicycle 112 miles and run 26.2 miles.The Hermosa Beach version, dating to the 1970s, is intended more as an expression of culture than athleticism, said Robert Enriquez, who made a film about the event titled “Run Paddle Chug.”“I think it really is Hermosa Beach’s running-of-the-bulls-type tradition,” he said.Alcohol is banned on the beach, yet city officials tolerate the Ironman.Mayor Justin Massey of Hermosa Beach declined to talk. But in an email he said race organizers maintained a good safety record and always left the beach clean.Continue reading the main storyWendy Burch, a KTLA reporter, was at the event Tuesday as it was reaching its frenzied climax.On live television, someone splattered her and the man she was interviewing with vomit.

The U.N. Must Unite and Protect Schools from Attack

In March, I was lucky enough to meet a truly exceptional young inventor called Salah. At just 11 years old, he has already created some incredible solar-powered engines and mechanical tools. Salah is also a refugee. His family fled from war and conflict. They saw untold horrors and were left with nothing. Displaced, Salah missed out on years of schooling. I met him at the “alternative learning center” he attends just outside Khartoum in Sudan. The center, which is supported by Education Above All and UNICEF, helps pupils who have missed out on years of schooling due to conflict. As I admired his inventions, I noticed that next to them was a model of a house. It looked a little out of place next to the cars, so I asked him about it. His answer astounded me, because he gave it with total absolute certainty: “This is the home I will build for my family one day.” Despite the unimaginable challenges he has faced, Salah can now live, dream, invent and plan a future he may not otherwise have had. Without doubt, education has transformed his life. Tragically, millions of children around the world are not able to reach their potential, often because of conflict. One quarter of all the world’s school-aged children — about 462 million young people, according to UNICEF — live in countries devastated by conflict. Last month, the Overseas Development Institute reported that more than one in five school-age children living in war zones is missing out on schooling. In most of these conflicts, schools, teachers and students are victims of targeted attacks. From Afghanistan to Colombia, the Philippines, South Sudan, Syria, Ukraine and Yemen, there have been a series of attacks on schools in at least 21 countries experiencing armed conflict since 2013. Education facilities are bombed, burned and destroyed. Schools are taken over and used as military bases. Children are recruited as soldiers. Students and teachers have been kidnapped or even murdered. Millions of children have no safe place to go. Their future is uncertain. Quality education is the key to building peace and making development sustainable. Yet alarming levels of conflict and humanitarian crisis around the world are endangering not only the United Nation’s global development goals, but also the credibility of the international order that the U.N. represents. The U.N. Security Council (UNSC) is the body charged by the U.N. Charter to ensure international peace and security. Yet this key institution is broken exactly where it is needed most: to hold those who commit mass atrocities and grave violations of international law to account. Time after time, members of the UNSC do not use their power of veto responsibly. Perpetrators are not held to account for their actions and opportunities to prevent conflict and establish peace are lost. Take the October attack on a school in Idlib, Syria, that left 21 children dead and many others wounded. An educational complex was targeted. It included a kindergarten, an elementary school, two middle schools and a secondary school. A senior U.N. official described it as a possible war crime. Yet the U.N. Security Council failed to unite and condemn this atrocity, meaning that there have been no consequences for the perpetrators. The world watches through broken windows, as the big players continue their deadly card game of geopolitics — recklessly gambling away lives, changing the rules with every round, flipping and shuffling their cards to suit their strategic interests, with apparent disregard for the fires raging outside. But this is not a game for the grieving parents of Idlib. Nor for the girls still being held captive by Boko Haram in Nigeria. Nor for the millions of children around the world in refugee camps, robbed of their chance to learn. Until government armed forces and non-state armed groups are held accountable for attacking schools, the violations and the violence will not stop. To make children safe as they learn, all states must adhere to the international laws and resolutions that protect education and the rights of children. Justice and security alone will not bring education to the millions of children who need it. Quality education is well known to strengthen economies and improve health outcomes. It also makes an important contribution to conflict prevention and post-conflict recovery for communities. Those delivering the world aid development budgets should recognize the long-term value of investing in secure, quality education. They should acknowledge the potential of education to prevent and heal conflict as well as build resilience within communities. Today, at The Hague Institute for Global Justice, we are bringing together international leaders and grassroots activists who are committed to protecting children and to building a stronger system of global governance. It is a first step on a roadmap aimed at strengthening international law and bringing to justice those responsible for attacks on children, schools and teachers. We are calling for bold leadership to give education a chance to break the cycle of violence. The G20 meeting in July 2017 is an opportunity for world leaders to demonstrate that they are accountable and responsible. They must renew their commitment to education as the key to delivering the vision of the Sustainable Development Goals. We call on powerful nations to put down their cards and end their deadly games.
