Kelly Campbell, associate professor of psychology at California State University, San Bernardino, and a nationally recognized expert on relationships, was interviewed for an article about catfishing, an act associated with online dating in which a person portrays himself/herself as someone else or presents false information on an online profile.

She was interviewed for two separate articles on the subject: “The science behind catfishing: How to detect fake profiles and create real connections,” and “Fresh breath, not fish breath: Cleaning up the mess after being catfished.”

Hate crimes are up this year in many large cities across California and the U.S., but Long Beach has shown a particularly pronounced increase by comparison, according to researchers at Cal State San Bernardino who track reported hate crimes.

There have been 12 hate crimes reported through August this year in Long Beach, according to numbers provided by the Long Beach Police Department.

“The rise in hate crimes in Long Beach reflects an overall trend that we’re seeing in nearly every jurisdiction that we have data for,” said Brian Levin, professor of criminal justice who directs CSUSB’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism. “Long Beach’s increase is more dramatic, but it still fits well within a trend that we’re seeing for 2017.”

Levin’s data set includes 13 large cities across the U.S. from which he’s been able to get numbers for varying portions of this year.
