Miller-McCune rebrands as Pacific Standard

pacific-standard-logo.jpgEditor Maria Streshinky explains the Santa Barbara-based magazine's evolving mission:

"Our offices are exactly one mile from the Pacific Ocean, facing other emerging frontiers. China is increasingly the driving force of global capitalism. Australia is becoming a financial and resource powerhouse. Indonesia and Thailand are on the rise. North and South Korea are glancing anxiously at each other, maybe with a modicum of hope.

"We realize our geographical positioning is as crucial a foundation for our editorial mission as our devotion to research-driven journalism.

"Our stories won’t be solely about the West. They will be from the West. Whether we are looking at Beijing, New York, or for that matter Sacramento, we will be doing so from a Pacific perspective and a Western sensibility."
