Industry Blames Pirate Fishing as Red King Prices Drop

Tuesday, November 25 2014

The Bering Sea red king crab fleet finished catching 10 million pounds of quota last week -- and they're facing some lackluster prices as the crab goes to market. It could be due to higher catch limits in Alaska and Russia.

UCSD Student of the Week: Aldrin Tan

Monday, November 24 2014

Student of the Week for November 10-14, 2014

The 5th/6th Grade Department selected Aldrin Tan as Student of the Week for the following reasons:

Aldrin comes into class with a smile on his face and a true desire to learn and excel. If there is an assignment on the board, he immediately starts to work. If the assignment reuires any introductory instructions, Aldrin can be counted on to remain quiet and focused. Although he's as willing as the next student to laugh at something said or done, in the classroom, he never loses sight of his primary mission - dedicated, hardworking student! Congratulations, Aldrin! It's a pleasure to have you as one of my students. - Ms. Anderson, ESL Teacher
