Learn Chinese

Today’s students will grow up to face a world entangled in the U.S.-China relationship, whether be it friendly or confrontational. Learning the language early in life may prepare them to be tomorrow’s global leaders.

Visit on Sunday afternoons between 1:30 and 5:30 p.m. to observe. The class is located at SCV Chinese School at 28141 Kelly Johnson Parkway, Valencia, 91355.

Today in history

Today is Sunday, March 10, the 69th day of 2013. There are 296 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1999, College of the Canyons began a 30-day investigation of an undisclosed faculty member who was accused of exhibiting sexually inappropriate behavior in a speech class of his. Multiple letters complaining about the teacher’s “verbal sexual harassment” were sent to both The Signal and the COC dean of personnel services.

Today’s Highlight in History: On March 10, 1913, former slave, abolitionist and Underground Railroad “conductor” Harriet Tubman died in Auburn, N.Y.; she was in her 90s.

Ten years ago: Facing almost certain defeat, the United States and Britain delayed a vote in the U.N. Security Council to give Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein an ultimatum to disarm. Natalie Maines, lead singer of the Dixie Chicks, told a London audience: “Just so you know... we’re ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas.” (Maines later apologized for the phrasing of her remark.)

Five years ago: A suicide bomber killed five U.S. soldiers as they chatted with shop owners while on a foot patrol in central Baghdad. New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer apologized after allegations surfaced that he had paid thousands of dollars for a high-end call girl; he did not elaborate on the scandal, which drew calls for his resignation. Democrat Barack Obama ridiculed the idea of being Hillary Rodham Clinton’s running mate, saying in Columbus, Miss., that voters had to choose between the two for the top spot on the fall ticket.

One year ago: Rick Santorum won the Kansas caucuses in a rout and Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney countered in Wyoming. Israel pounded Gaza for a second day, trading airstrikes and rocket fire with Palestinian militants, killing 15 of them. F. Sherwood Rowland, 84, the Nobel prize-winning chemist who sounded the alarm on the thinning of the Earth’s ozone layer, died in Corona del Mar, Calif.
