Great Article! Jeff Bull is rocking out with all his new projects, I don't know how the guy does it all ^_^
Check out the trellised Cascade Hops growing along Mendocino Ave in the beer garden of recently opened Heritage Public House , offering a large variety of California only craft beer on tap and amazing gastropub fairer lunch and dinner . Side note :Florian Daunhauer was former property owner in the mid 1960's when the business location was the Copper Penny.

I guess the message here is :
Don`t be a " dumbfuck " .....LOL
Didn't they hire a company to do their roofing from Oakville?
Much research indicates that social media and other mediated communication actually has widened, deepened and varied our interpersonal relationships and communication. Though I would intensely agree we share too much and are often inappropriate, used responsibly and in a focused manner it can make and maintain relationships that might otherwise not be possible. All things in moderation perhaps instead of such a decisive condemnation would be the way to go.
The best Sonoma County Fall festival. I love the turkish coffee and bee's knees! Not to mention all the entertainment and vendors.
When the Google sidebar ad thing happened to me for the first time a while back, it was disquieting, disturbing...full of disses basically.
However, as a musician I have never and would never buy into that elitist Ayn Rand rubbish....amatuers and professionals, pshah. Yes, there are narcissistic individuals who think they are smarter than everyone else and love nothing more than to profit on what you give away for free. And yes, we are essentially social animals and we like to share. But I am more confident that we will find new and better ways to deal with this than what Keen recommends.
And for the record, I stopped visiting both the NYtimes and the Pressdemo sites after they started charging. Ever hear of What.CD, Keen? The war over paying for content is already over.
This is one of my favorite belly dance events!! So much fun. Great dancing and shopping! Also good food and drinks. I love it and so does the rest of my family!!! Always a good time!

Kid friendly. Fun all weekend. Not to be missed!!!! Come join us to celebrate bellydancing at it's best!
sounds like the promoters pulled off a massive fraud...ala Donald Trump - ego and all - it's called working with OPM (other people's money) - when it doesn't work, you just walk away, then file for bankruptcy - Wine Country seems to be attracting more than its fair share of parasitic types these days - we have been overpromoted, hyped and conned - tiny Sonoma City now has 12 major banks supporting the billionaire's efforts to destroy our little sanctuary - it's beyond tragic - the octopus has arrived and spreading its destructive tentacles throughout the counties - it's positively creepy...
Basically what Keen is saying is that we are sharing too much on social media and paying too high a price without realizing it. I really don't think charging customers like the two leading newspapers are doing is the answer, but Keen makes some valid points.
Bravo to those involved in this peaceful protest. Rachel painted well the dark brush strokes of what aging refineries look like.
In addition to those living near the refinery, Gary Pace and his children deserve much gratitude, a local Sonoma County healh professional who is able to project out what the near/long term might look like without intervention.
I grew up in and then worked for a brief period in the petrochemical industry. Another career took me away for a long time but I found myself recently creating a natural gas production reporting system (Exxon/Mobile) and software for oil/gas pipeline inspection equipment (GE)
My observations are that the "Separate Oil and State" mantra is crucial now to open up space for not just renewables but also energy efficiency across the consumption/conservation spectrum.
Too much of our financial, R&D, public health, and opportunity resources are still devoted to, and supporting forms of energy that without doubt have become problematic in many ways.
It will take longer to create localized distributed energy systems than it did to create the smartphone ecosystem, but it's happening. The evidence is everywhere and indisputable.
There is no shame in having the US become a prime mover in this energy transition, much less so than having been one of the worlds highest per capita consumers.
With the emerging electric car market, the increased use of residential high efficient hvac systems, solar installations, energy audits, changes in local government land use and energy policy, etc. change can be fun and without sacrificing anything except an old way of doing business.
Thank you Rachel for your courage to cover this topic.

These yearly lectures are popular, well-attended and fascinating. All the speakers are very engaging and knowledgeable!
Interesting article, and some good points. Also interesting that now the liberal left and Sarah Palin essentially agree that the US should not become more involved in this ... "Let Allah sort it out." While I understand the resistance to military action, it is clear that more discussion doesn't get anywhere: we simply have to stop assuming that everyone on the world thinks and reasons the same as we do. Our logic and arguments don't work with many of the leaders in other countries. But military action generally includes innocent civilians (and children) who become "collateral damage", which is little different than their killing by corrupt regimes. Clearly this is not an easy choice, and people will not agree on whatever outcome is finally implemented. And another sad result is that we will never know which option is the path to quickest solution (end to the innocent deaths of people who happen to live in harms way.) Do you believe that the rebels/resistance would massacre their own people and their own children with poison gas? Do you believe that lower level military people in Assad's forces has the ability to launch an attack without Assad's knowledge? Do you believe that anyone else in the free world would assume the responsibility for responding to the situation instead of the United States? If no one responded, what do you think will happen? These are not meant to be flippant questions, but serious long-term thought about options and alternatives. What alternatives are there that would engage ALL the parties in this fiasco?
Meaghan: Let us truly hope that they are not stooping so low as to try to dig up dirt in a misguided effort to blame it on the victim. In any event, I ask all Sonoma County citizens to join me in praying for this victim's well-being and holding her in your thoughts. We can only imagine the trauma, mental anguish and fear that this person must be experiencing. She is the real victim in this entire matter, NOT Efren, and we must never lose sight of that fact.
Nice commentary, Lisa. I feel all Citizens should feel safe in their homes, regardless of gender.
thank you, Mark Perlman. you really inspired all of us students and taught all of us how to look at mark making and line quality and composition in a way that continues to make sense. i still go back to so much of what you taught us about structure and purpose and hard work. your teaching still informs my current work. thank you for an excellent educational experience.
congratulations on your much deserved retirement! best wishes to you!!
The article has a HUGE flaw, which - when exposed- renders its conclusions irrelevant. None of the proposed actions to address GW address ANY of the major causes of atmospheric CO2. Worse, no proposals even address the major cause of anthropogenic CO2, Third World homefires, per the revised IPCC report. So even if everything about the magnitude and imminence of the problem as stated in the article is true, none of the proposals to date could make meaningful changes in CO2 levels; the proposals amount to rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
However, despite repeated false statement to the contrary, there is nowhere near consensus in the scientific community on the GW issues, especially among physicists and chemists. That does not mean we should not take action. There are plenty of reasons to take reasonable action to keep air and water clean that do not necessitate a return to the Stone Age. Some of us have been involved in those actions for many years. But we reject the ill-advised kind of panic responses pushed by the doomsayers.
