CSUSB names Professor Buckley 2018-19 Outstanding Professor award
May 11, 2019
Professor Annie Buckley’s meeting of staff and students in the Prison Arts Collective was interrupted on Wednesday, May 8, by President Tomás D. Morales and CSUSB’s senior leadership, the College of Arts & Letters and her fellow art department colleagues to surprise her with being named the 2018-19 Outstanding Professor award, the university’s top faculty honor.
This faculty awards notification “ambush” is a long-time and much-loved CSUSB tradition.
In being chosen for the honor, Buckley also became the John M. Pfau Endowed Professor.
“This is a very, very special recognition, a special tradition here at Cal State San Bernardino, where we ambush or surprise faculty members who are being recognized. And we are recognizing Annie with the Outstanding Professor Award,” Morales told the class. “She’s recognized by her colleagues and by you as students for her excellence in teaching, for her scholarly activities and creative activities, service to our students, service to the people of California.”

Analysis by CSUSB professor on commercial ships being sabotaged near Strait of Hormuz included in news report
May 13, 2019
David Yaghoubian, CSUSB professor of history, was interviewed for a segment on reports of commercial ships being targeted in a “sabotage attack” near the Strait Hormuz, which Iran borders. Four commercial ships were targeted the United Arab Emirates foreign affairs ministry has said. There were no reported casualties. Iran has called for a full investigation, one of the first countries in that region to do so.
Yaghoubian said the call for the probe was both “logical and pragmatic. Obviously, there are going to be two stark interpretations without more information … and it already seems to be coming from the Saudi and Emirati (United Arab Emirates) press releases, of course, leading toward that ... this was some sort of sabotage attack by Iran. Of course, then, I believe most global observers, without additional information, knowing that this this week, with all that is going on with American aggression against Iran in terms of the fact that the U.S. Maritime Administration on Thursday warned of just such an event, and with the fanfare of the (U.S. Navy) aircraft carrier steaming towards Iran, this would be the perfect time for your false flag attack engaged in by Emirati or Saudi forces … ''
