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.

-Woody Hastings, Sebastopol

Re: “Watch Cotati Police Kick Door In, Tase Resident

A swat team for a family quarrel with children present? This would never have happened when the Peace and Freedom Party ran the City of Cotati circa 1970s. The police chief was a full blooded Native American and the Mayor later worked for United Way.

Re: “Eat More Beef

Nicolette, I don't care if one eats meat or not, but after nearly 45 years of not eating meat I would never change. Raised 3 healthy children who as adults remain vegetarian.
Adequate protein and B12 were never a problem and done without meat, supplements or vitamins. Since discovering Macrobiotics I have never looked back. At 70 years old I remain healthy, active and drug free. Can the same be said for meat eaters?

Re: “Bowled Over

how can you call ORGANIC chicken in a restaurant 'unremarkable'?! If you're so jaded and bored, try another profession! :)

I've read the story twice now, and I still don't know why I put that giant eyeball there.

Re: “Hey Whitey

This movie is NOT set at Whitman College (which is a real life top liberal arts college in the US) but at fictional "Winchester University". Please correct your story.

Re: “Eat More Beef

The premise that ecologists have followed is that animals cause soil degradation and desertification due to over grazing. Based on this premise, Savory (with the support of all the other ecologists in his country) made the tragic mistake of removing elephants from the landscape. Savory acknowledges this tragedy and that he'll take this mistake to his grave.

What happened though without the elephants is that desertification got a lot worse. What Savory learned is that the elephants and large grazers were and are essential in preventing desertification and that animals are an essential part of maintaining grassland ecosystems. 2/3 of the earth non-submerged area is grasslands.

In America, the near extermination of bison took those large ruminants out of the ecosystem. Abolitionist vegans now want to further degrade ecosystems by doing away with grass fed cattle and other livestock. But despite misinformed editorials claiming that Savory's methods don't work, the proof is in the implementation with over 40 milion acres on 5 continents utilziing holistic management methods producing results.

Here are two excellent videos showing the methods and benefits of proper management and soil sequestion. Anyone who dismisses what Savory has been accomplishing is simply blinded by his or her food religion and has not spoken with any ranchers using these methods

Re: “Eat More Beef

"This concept of cattle as agents of environmental remediation, and much of the intellectual underpinnings of Hahn Niman's analysis, is based on the work of Allan Savory."

Savory, responsible for the killing of 40,000 elephants because, he claimed, they were destroying the Savannah, now advocates the breeding of cattle to restore that same land, has never provided any reproducible data to back up his claims. His assertions are rebuked here: http://bit.ly/asavory and here: http://bit.ly/1zdoedf

Re: “Eat More Beef

She actually argues that eating meat is not morally wrong, and that it can be part of a health diet along with being a positive towards our environment versus the projected view that all meat production is a negative impact on our environment. Are you willing to acknowledge that humans have been eating meat since evolution formed modern man, and that our ancestral roots also come from meat eaters? Is the hawk immoral? What about the cat, dog, snake, salmon, bear, raccoon, hummingbird, etc.? How do you feel about wind turbines, hybrid cars, trains, plant farming, etc. killing countless animals everyday? I understand the point you are trying to make, animals feel pain (agreed) and that should be respected (again, I agree). But you are living in a fantasy utopia where death is not part of how our world operates, some animals/plants die so others may live. Should we do everything possible to make sure animals who are being raised for food are treated with respect and raised as humanly as possible, I say emphatically yes. Should they be slaughtered (processed for the PC crowd) humanly, without a doubt. If the author chooses to raise animals humanly and in a sustainable fashion, makes sure they are slaughtered humanly but still chooses to be a vegetarian that is her choice, and should not be used as an argument for why you dismiss everything she states in her article as bullshit just because you have a different opinion, what happened to using science to form an opinion instead of letting emotions skew your take on facts.
