Eleanor, a Chinese student at Sunny Hills High School who asked that her last name not be used, acts the same as any American schoolgirl. She isn't afraid to speak out in class; she discusses abortion with the opposite sex, and she holds opinions different from those of her teachers. However, as soon as she steps into her parents' house, she must return to her role as the obedient Chinese daughter. She looks to the floor instead of lifting her head, for example.

Some people have been wondering why Asian-American students at UC Irvine have been on a drive to have the university create an Asian-American studies program. When we talk about Asian-American studies, we are talking about experiences here in the United States, not Asia. We are not Asian nationals. We are Asian by ancestry and American by citizenship, therefore we are Asian-Americans.

Perception: White men are increasingly under attack in this country, losing out on jobs and promotions to less qualified white women, and to minorities of both genders, because American employers are deeply committed to affirmative action, which is inherently unfair. Sure, maybe at one time, things were different, but the playing field is finally level. Women and minorities, who get special treatment at the expense of white men, should quit their bellyachin' already.

Most of us believe that love is tenderly nurturant, while some argue that it is essentially cruel. Who's right? Current broadcast and film entertainment mainly comes down on the love-cruelty side. The game show "That's Amore" features "lovers" who try to best each other with bitter insults to the guffaws and cheers of the audience, which votes to decide who wins.

It was a warm, festive spiritual gathering at the home of an Anaheim Hills couple--one that Ghodisi Najafabadi could have only dreamed of in her native Iran, where hundreds of members of her faith have been tortured and killed because of their religious beliefs. "People here are really open," Najafabadi, 47, marveled during a recent Bahai unity feast. "In Iran, you had to be very quiet."

What happens to a woman's body at age 40 or 45 or 50? We know, only too well, that things start to look different on the outside. But, surprisingly, this time period represents a big unknown in women's health research. The '90s decade has been a rich one in understanding diseases such as breast cancer, osteoporosis and heart disease, generally ailments of old age. But how do women end up with those diseases? What does it mean to your long-term health to have a baby at 41?

A third of California's Latinas--and up to 39% in Los Angeles County--lack health insurance, leading fewer of them to seek preventive health care and contributing to sometimes lethal consequences, according to a state study released Wednesday. The report by the Latino Coalition for a Healthy California also found that among ethnic groups of women, Latinas were by far the least likely to have insurance. In all, nearly 1.5 million lack either public or private coverage.

The following story never fails to draw a chuckle, which says something about people's gallows sense of humor: A friend gave me a tape of a Brooklyn Dodgers radio broadcast from the mid-50s. As one of the Dodgers rounded the bases after hitting a home run, announcer Jerry Doggett added the footnote that as a sponsor's prize, free cartons of cigarettes would be sent "to the guys at Vets Hospital." One assumes the vets choked on their gratitude.
