Re: “EXTENDED PLAY: An interview with Genevieve DeGuzman about the benefits of Coworking

Great interview! Coworking is definitely a growing phenomenon and not ready to slow down any time soon. It's been so positive in the ways it has helped small businesses develop themselves by providing them with a not-so-expensive office where collaboration is inspiring. I found a blog which centers around the coworking/startup world, they recently published 2 interviews with founders of coworking spaces. Very interesting, check it out here: http://www.shareyouroffice.com/blog-syo/

Re: “Isolation Row

Torture. Sadistic, immature, bullies with badges and Tazers and guns, but no training to de-escalate situations, empathize, as with the responsive mentally-ill inmates deposited in jails and prisons in lieu of treatment and plans to mitigate problem behaviors prior to re-releasing the suffering back into society.

Honor, integrity, restraint, empathy, respect for humanity, civil liberties, life, are abundantly rare in law enforcement. Screening new applicants for law enforcement jobs ignores "character" and "ethics" and training could be summed up as "We, the Blue Badges, are brothers and sisters. It's us against the citizens. all shady criminals where our infidelities and vices are just products of the stress of a dangerous job. At all times, remember, back your fellow law enforcement officer, get your stories straight, lie and fudge if needed to justify anything and everything your eyes witnessed or your ears heard, sympathy and reflection are weakness. You are part of a team. A gang. Everyone up and down the chain including the District Attorney and FBI and Internal Affairs...has your back. You are better than the riff-raff which is why you have a badge and a gun and a license to kill. And your culture doesn't just disdain officers snitching on fellow officerrs, it resolutely demands lying to cover the lies of your colleagues. Best of all, you will be rewarded for lying, and never held accountable. When I grow up, I want to be in law enforcement. Now hand over your lunch money.

Re: “Teachable Moment

Wall Street vs CA schools budget. Confused by the comparison. The governor has a $6B surplus, march in Sac first. Stop focusing on observers and start negotiating the salaries since the contract isn't even up yet. You'd get 2.5% now and likely another 2.5% in June if you'd get to the table. You're harming yourselves over principle (right or wrong).

Re: “Old Meets New

Great fact checking - thanks

But… have you been to Mac's? It really does not cut the mustard

Re: “Old Meets New

ERROR #1: no way does Marin County have the "largest Jewish population in California." According to the same source the author is citing, the North American Jewish Data Bank, Marin has 26,100 Jews, compared to half a million in LA County, 65,800 in SF, 32,000 in Contra Costa.

ERROR #2: "This might be the one and only Jewish-style deli from Eureka to San Francisco" How does the Bohemian ignore Mac's Jewish Style Deli on 4th Street in Santa Rosa?

Re: “The Old-Name Game: Santa Rosa's Disappearing Landscape

I suddenly had a memory of "going out to coffee" at the old El Rancho Tropicana, and wondered where the heck it went.....I guess that's Target now ?
You forgot another SR icon - the funky red oriental-shaped Chinese restaurant on Mendocino near what is now Adel's.
And Holliday Bowl (though Old Mexico and their bowla's are still there).
And downtown "the hill" that was leveled, next to "Wolf Coffee," where silly "alternative" teenagers hung out, some panhandling.
Jalisco's is still around, as is Lincoln Arts Center, and the good old Flamingo Hotel !!
How we lost Petrini's I cannot understand - I remember WE eves were the "meet-market."
And the funky old Molsberry's Market (A&B?) on Yulupa eventually became Food For Thought and now Whole Foods.
And Crystal's Corner on Yulupa is still there.....
**but alas, the "Milk-Stand" was torn down long time ago - I'd buy $.10 Jolly Ranchers there after school.**
I remember when the 7-Eleven and Baskin-Robins sat next to a field in Bennett Valley.
And the Payless across the street.
We had a Long's over there too - I miss Long's.
And the "castles" at the top of Medica Rd. that my friend lived next to - I think still there, but accessible from a different street.
How about those sewer pipes one could walk through in Roseland ? (always wanted to try that one).
How about the "Baby Tree" in the old Community Hospital ?
I went up there shortly after Sutter took over the premises to see my pic on the baby tree, and sadly it was gone - a nurse said it was removed and put in storage only weeks before.
My old park on North Street is no longer the fun little place I remember.
I still call the LBC the LBC. Ode to Luther Burbank !
What a shame the Copperfield's building was renovated - SHAME SHAME SHAME !!!
Oh, the list goes on......

Re: “Hog Heaven

Great article Stett!!!

Thanks for the inside information it was a pleasure to read it and be a tiny part of that story.
I know Tim very well......

I live in the Netherlands and the 8 pregnant sows came to me from the Mangalica Farm in Hungary, (from Péter Tóth, President of the Hungarian Mangalica Breeder Organization) from all different bloodlines. They gave birth in my quarantine stable, and I cared for the 50 piglets during almost 3 months. The 18 best- 10 reds & 8 blonde were selected for the States and 8 of the reds went to Tim in California. He is one of the most dedicated breeders I know!!! Tim truly loves the breed and he is willing to sacrifice all that is needed to establish a healthy breeding base in America with Wilhelm Kohl of Pure Mangalitsa, Michigan.

Tim works closely with Pure Mangalitsa in Michigan, who arranged the first import of original Hungarian live-stock to the states. They are also the ones who did the first import of the blonde Mangalitsa from Austria in 2010.
Until the beginning of this year, (2014) it was not possible to get breeding stock from the Hungarian herd-book because the Mangalitsa is a protected breed in Hungary, so no breeding material was allowed to leave Hungary.

It took Wilhelm Kohl almost 2 years to build a stable relationship with the Hungarian Mangalica Breeder Organization before they agreed with the first export of Mangalica ever!! So what we see here is also a very important moment of Mangalitsa history, written in our days. Most people don't know this......but I guess it’s interesting for some..

The other 2 reds are in Michigan at the Mangalitsa-base farm, "Pure Mangalitsa," as well as the 6 blonde......2 of the blondes went to Atlanta to Justin King's Farm.

Pure Mangalitsa has a unique position in the US when it comes to the original Hungarian lines, they are the only ones that have the contracts for importing these "Royal Hungarian Mangalitsa’s” to the States. Why Royal? The Mangalitsa was in the beginning of the breed (1833) only bred for the Habsburg dynasty ....so it's truly a pig for Royalty!

Re: “Hog Heaven

nothing like stupid comments from people who know nothing about raising pigs..or nature for that matter....guess they'd rather have seen the breed go extinct. The reality is that you can't maintain the species without having a meat program since 1). pigs are very prolific, and 2). only the best genetics are bred. In nature, with predation, that's how hardy breeds are maintained. Without apex predtors, man assumes that role.

Re: “Fork in the Road

This is our neighborhood spot and we are so happy that Fork is moving in. We have loved them in their downtown location and feel so lucky to have them as our new go to for casual food dining. This location might have been "cursed" in the past, but Sarah's casual, delicious, clean and affordable food will turn that around.
Good luck Sarah.

Re: “Light Fantastic

Hi There,

Great to see this story in the Bohemian. Last month I attended the memorial for my uncle, J. Woodland Hastings, a marine biochemist who dedicated his entire life to the study of these amazing critters. Uncle Woody died in August.

Anyway, you can read more about his life's work, some of which formed the basis for some of the practical applications of his discoveries mentioned in the story. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/10/science/j-w-hastings-87-a-pioneer-in-bioluminescence-research-dies.html?_r=2

And the book he co-authored about bioluminescence, published in 2013, is available at amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Bioluminescence-Living-Lights/dp/0674067169
It is somewhat technical here and there but mostly a very fun read for those interested in bioluminescence.
