California Sets Stage for A State Holiday and 100th Birthday for Ronald Reagan

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Starting next year, California will set aside a day to honor former President Ronald Reagan, who also served as governor.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed two bills Monday paying tribute to the conservative icon, who died in 2004.

The first designates Feb. 6 as Ronald Reagan Day. The bill, SB944, encourages schools to spend the day commemorating Reagan's life and accomplishments.

The second, AB1911, establishes a commission to plan the celebration of what would have been Reagan's 100th birthday next February. The commission would have to use private donations to pay for the festivities.

Despite the Legislature's Democratic majority, both Reagan bills received unanimous support.

Hollywood moved a step closer toward making universal video a reality.


Get to know the name UltraViolet. By next year you'll be able to play all the movies and shows you download over almost any device -- from TVs to smartphones to tablets to PCs to Blu-ray players. You'll also be able to burn them onto DVDs and share them with family and friends.

Most significantly, making the vision happen has involved an historic collaboration among the major media and technology companies -- all united by common threats faced by piracy and a languishing home video market.
Plans have been under way since 2008, but on Monday, an actual name, logo and prototype for a website were revealed.
Among the stakeholders are five of the major Hollywood studios, cable companies like Comcast, technology companies such as Microsoft, big-ticket retailer Best Buy and online rental giant Netflix.
Some 58 organizations have committed to establishing a common file format and dismantling the barriers that prevent sharing digital content through a consortium called the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem, or DECE.
