Donald Barclay gave a presentation on Fake News and it’s history.  Fake news is not whatever you don’t want to hear, nor is it something entirely new. Propaganda dates back to B.C.  When reading news, consider the source that wrote the information.  Check the author, is she/he biased or reputable? Mind the numbers and look at the statistics. When a survey is given, think of the survey sample, how questions were asked and if there is a wording bias. Now go out and find news to read and analyze.

Fifty temporary exhibits have passed through the Courthouse Museum in the last 15 years. There is one permanent display at the museum which highlights the historical aspect of the building which was formally declared a historical building/site in 1983 by the Historical Society.

Merced had a Chinatown which dates back to 1875, founded by Chinese immigrants who came to Merced for the gold rush.  The Chinese community was 10% of Merced’s population.  The first Chinese Temple built in 1875 was one of the earliest churches in Merced. The construction of highway 99 had a huge impact on Chinatown because it was built in the vicinity.
