I picked this student at random and I notice that both 'white' and 'other asian' are selected, and that the box at the bottom says 'Multi-Racial'. Parents fill out forms when they enroll their kids and those forms transform to these screens. There are some amusing totally contradictory 'rules' around this; in CA, you CANNOT force a parent to state their child's race/ethnicity (the online form does not 'require' an answer), but these fields are REQUIRED in the application, and 'someone' has to make the decision.

All this data gets uploaded to the CA state (CALPADS - https://www.cde.ca.gov/ds/sp/cl/ ) and is available to all educational establishments.
Wow ! It's been a while since I filled out any such application forms, but I guess that's right.

I don't know if I've every had it, but I'll take your word for it. All you need is bag of rice and cheap rice cooker, and hey presto, perfect rice.

Yep. Scouse quite likes the packet stuff but honestly, it tastes horrible. I just boil mine in a pot, can't be arsed with too many gadgets cluttering up the bench space.

Depends on how often you have rice, I guess. And maybe the type of rice you cook. I tried a microwave Mexican rice once...edible...barely.

Basmati---just use an ordinary saucepan --- bring to boil then stir once, put on lid and immediately reduce gas to low until dry and cooked. (If electric hob ---need to change rings (hot to cooler). (In India most others use a pressure cooker ---those cookers terrify me when the steam bursts out!)

In the UK there was an outcry some years ago that those with a 'foreign' names were not getting places at medical schools.

Investigation launched after black barrister mistaken for defendant three times in a day
The head of the courts service in England and Wales has apologised to a black barrister after she was stopped and mistaken for a defendant three times in one day at court.

Kevin Sadler, the acting chief executive of HM Courts and Tribunals Service, has condemned the “totally unacceptable behaviour” and promised to investigate the complaint made by Alexandra Wilson, who specialises in criminal and family cases.

The power of US "food" advertising is that people continue to buy shit like this. And at a much higher price than better quality rice.
