Build and they will...show up!... I get it... But if you hadnt noticed... things are breaking in society, cause folks dont know how to flow when the seasons change... at this point it seems only a few folks are making the calls anyway and this "effects everything!" in this Valley... Present and Future... We are just blowing fluff out here while they are "making the decisions"...again... "that effect everyone!" Where are the vendors in this... or more importantly, the Farmers... How to reach them all?

Three blocks north and the ambiance is entirely different. It's the blend of town and market that is so much of the magic of the market.
So yes, three, not so short, blocks makes a huge difference.

Developments around the world: 5G: The Dominoes Are Starting To Fall (or calling for more studies)
I read the link above and I can attest that much of what they say is true, but taken so far out of context that the meaning is completely distorted. For example, it says:

Prior to its use as a communications technology, 5G was a military weapon

Well, if you mean using an electronically steered antenna to focus RF in the direction you want, then yes, it was first developed for radars. It replaced the mechanically steered antennas.
and:

5G will be hundreds of times as powerful as 4G

And, if by powerful you capability to transmit data, yes, that's the point. But if you mean in terms of radiated power, then no.

But that is like saying water is dangerous, so dangerous that people have died from drinking water (link to water toxicity) and the CIA uses water to torture people (link to waterboarding), and there is no federally accepted safe level for drinking water (probably no one thought to set an upper limit as it is silly). Oh, and water kills over 3000 Americans every year (link to drownings)

So, net-net, 5G has all the problems of 4G (not specifying if or what they are), but just at lower overall levels, directed only at the users, and for shorter times. Seems to be a better choice. But, because it is one G more than 4G, it is engendering a strong response; illogical in my opinion, but still strong.

Remember, a single false article in the Lancet 30 years ago yields thousands of unnecessarily diseased children (Vaccine causes Autism trope); and there is nothing that will remove the false facts.

Just the opposite in fact.. directed at everyone 24/7... user/nonuser .. continuously...

Whereas 5G phones won't be readily available until next year and beyond in some cases... 5G will allow AI projects to take off.... AI (artificial intelligence) really likes things such as robots, bionics, driverless vehicles.

you've mentioned earlier you're not all that technical, and in this case you're missing the whole point of 'directed'. It's available for everybody, I suppose, but the point is to avoid saturating the area in favor of targeting the communication to its receiver. Think of cupping your hands as a megaphone and facing the person you're trying to talk to.

I'm not technical.. I guess - given the Internet of Things - the refrigerator letting us know what is due to expire, et cetera - wouldn't sending and receiving capability be on all the time as it now, only handling more data faster ??

I apologize if my analogy wasn't clear enough... I'm not well aquainted with the microwave weapons, but my understanding is that they use phase-array systems that are NOT electronically steerable (the electronic steering components can't handle the high power and high frequency); to say they are related is true, both use EMF and directional antennas, but energy densities are at least 100,000 times different. and at 95 GHz a heavy shirt blocks the radiation. Like the difference between a raindrop and a firehose.

This statement is simply not true. I am very familiar with 5G and it will ONLY be directed to the user, and only when using it. The point is to save money on transmitter power, and continuously transmitting, and transmitting omni-directionally (directed at everyone) would really defeat that point. I don't understand where or how you came by that view. It is true, that directional beams are not very tight (jet radar beams are 100 times tighter), but on the order of 60 times tighter than the current 4G beams. And the beams are used on the receivers too, so the transmitter power is even further reduced. It is like the large TV antennas that you rotate to make the signal seem stronger, only with 5G you don't have to physically rotate the antenna, it is done electronically.

Not exactly. AI requires high computational power and likely will remain localized; 5G allows faster response times (it has lower latency than current cell phone methods), so that the AI in a big room in Colorado can get a response fast enough to compute whether to send the trolley into the homeless guy on the side track, or allow it to continue unabated to the family with the small children (see the trolley problem, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trolley_problem)

Yes, he is. But it is explicitly NOT 5G. I am very familiar with his program. Also Jeff Bezos;And Boeing and an outfit called OneWeb. There are at least 4 major players in LEO internet and maybe another 2 dozen smaller players for satellite based data communications. But these are not 5G.

They use similar technology (radio waves) but 5G is principally a common set of cell-phone standards that allow new capabilities to lower power consumption, increase capacity without increasing cell sites (that is, making current cell sites more capable of handling high data loads), lowering operating costs. It is very complicated how they do it, and it wasn't really possible before due the technology not being invented yet. But a lot of progress has happened in the last 4 years. The main hit against 5G (which also supports 4G as a legacy system) is that the early deployment hardly more than 4G. ATT's is 5G 'ready'; Verizon is low rate 5G. So it will be a few years before the main benefits are realized.

as Spam1 explains too, the idea here is to get greater effective bandwidth at lower power by being smarter about communication. So no, it's not targeting anyone all the time, certainly not at any high power level. The analogy to shouting through cupped hands isn't that far fetched. It'll be like having a bunch of people mixed into a crowd, where each one can turn to the nearest people and call out any message sent directly to them. This, rather than having an auctioneer with a stack of Marshall amplifiers that can be heard by everyone, ripping through all the messages, one after another, as fast as he can. Which is what we in effect have now.

If you want to think of this as selfishly motivated (which it is, because, business...) the telcos want to get messages out less wastefully and faster. It's expensive to use more power than you need to.

Poisoning Paradise: A Community Fights Back

  • December 20, 2018
By Annie Dobbs-Kramer and Shannon Biggs

Annie is the political director of the North Bay Organizing Project (NBOP) in Sonoma County, CA, and Shannon is the co-founder of Movement Rights.

Sonoma, County California is the California Dream. Majestic Redwoods. Rugged coastline. World class dining. Affluence. The Good Life. And 425 wineries in an idyllic country setting. The myth of the Northern California wine country lifestyle hides the secret behind the wine bottle: huge agribusiness as a political machine, mono-cropping replacing forests and woodlands, cancer clusters and pesticides poisoning the land, water, farmworkers and community.


Sonoma is among the least healthy places to live in California

More than 60,000 acres of Sonoma County are industrial mono-cropped vineyards. Of these, only 600 acres are organically farmed—that is less than 3%. The rest are heavily sprayed with toxic chemicals that poison the farm workers who work the vineyards, the people who drink the wine, and the communities who rely on the water that these chemicals contaminate. As industrial vineyard acreage increases and climate change makes other wine growing regions less desirable, there is a push to clear cut forested areas and turn them into vineyards. These industrial vineyards use a tremendous amount of water, and often are accompanied by water mining which is depleting Sonoma County groundwater.

Sixty percent of the children of farmworkers in Sonoma County have asthma. Sonoma has the third highest rate of childhood cancer in California. And that was before the fires.

Glyphosate is found in all California wines tested. (Source & Image credit: BeWell Buzz)
The California wine regions are recorded to have between 79,000-189,000 pounds of the pesticide glyphosate sprayed in their communities every year, along with a heavy combination of other industrial pest-control chemicals. As Dr. Robin Mesnage, Dept. of Medical & Molecular Genetics, Kings College states, Glyphosate is everywhere throughout our food chain. We know Roundup contains many other chemicals, which when mixed together are 1,000 times more toxic than glyphosate on its own.”

Recent studies have linked glyphosate, a chemical component found in RoundUp (which drenches Sonoma County’s fields, and flows into rivers and groundwater), with autism. And used in combination with other dangerous pesticides including Mancozeb (a developmental toxin and probable carcinogen), the residents of Sonoma County are being poisoned.

Rachel Carson led the way to ending the use of DDT and the poisoning of insects, animals and people with the publishing of SILENT SPRING back in 1962. We can do it again!!! And let's start right here in Sonoma County.

And, speaking of Rachel Carson.


Burbank Farm and Garden will be holding their annual spring open house and plant sale on the weekend of 4/27 and 4/28th and I'll be performing my Rachel Carson Returns show there again. So come on over and check out the beautiful gardens, buy some great organic plant starts, and see Rachel Carson come to life and tell her story. It's different everytime depending on how she inspires me. Lilith

Artist Statement: The title of my show, "Into the Fold", refers to how my experience of training and becoming a Laguna docent has broadened my awareness of both the natural and cultural richness that is the Laguna de Santa Rosa. I am deeply grateful to have been welcomed into a community so committed to teaching and building a healthier environment for future generations. This art show is a celebration of the work that the outdoor education program called Learning Laguna is about. Learning Laguna docent volunteers lead students to explore the Laguna's water cycle, plant and animal adaptations, aquatic life, and bird migration through classroom and field activities. Along with finding inspiration in the flora and fauna, it is the tule weaving activity that speaks to me most about the history of the land. In this activity, a group sits together under a shade tent along the Laguna to weave a bird necklace out of the reeds. The bird being represented is an elusive wetland heron called the American Bittern. The children are asked to imagine themselves living in the Laguna before the changes made by our modern culture. We ask them to imagine how they might eat, sleep, and travel around. They realize how everything they might need to survive is all around them. The bending and folding of the simple plant material becomes something connecting past generations with present ones, many hands and hearts imagining the past and the future.

Artist Biography: Angela Zocco Sturr has taught art and ceramics from her Sebastopol studio for many years. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and shows her work locally. She has been a longtime docent of the Laguna Foundation's Learning Laguna program, trained for numerous outdoor education programs with Landpaths and Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods, and completed the UC Naturalists program to become a California Naturalist. Finding long-term stewardship as a participant in the citizen science program Beach Watch, she gathers data monthly on South Salmon Creek Beach. Currently she teaches art and garden at Apple Blossom Elementary School. Website: http://angela-sturr.squarespace.com/

What inspires you to take a picture? Is it natural beauty; a bizarre moment; a quirky expression; an adorable child; your dog at the beach? No matter what sparks your motivation to “click”, your photographs represent what is significant in your life. The best camera to capture those moments is the one you have with you. These days that is most likely your phone!


Come spend time in a fun and inspirational environment to improve your vision and learn techniques that will elevate the quality of your images. We will spend time indoors and outside learning about working with natural light, depth of field, achieving sharp images that will print beautifully, macro, detail and landscape photography, HDR, panos, filters, action, burst mode, selfies and editing in the phone. After practicing with our phones or tablets (iPads, iPhones or Android devices) we will return to Heron Hall to review, share and discuss.


Susan and Neil Silverman are a husband-wife team who have taught and photographed together for over twenty years. Their passion behind the lens is transmitted not only through their images, but to their students as well. They have been leading their own workshops for over ten years and taught for Great American Photography Workshops for ten years; have taught for Better Photo.com, Santa Fe School, PPA affiliates, PPC, B&H Photo, Pacific North West Art School, Gualala Art Center, Santa Rosa Junior College, and many more. Although they are well versed in Photoshop and Lightroom, they believe in getting the image in the camera. They love teaching and watching their students have that “Aha” moment of learning how to capture a wonderful photo. They forever seek "the Image, the Light, and the Moment" through their camera lens and their life experiences. Photography is fun, exciting and an ever-changing environment and they work hard to keep their finger on the pulse of the beat of the times. A photo can be good or great; and they believe in putting the "extra" in front of ordinary. Visit their website.

June is the month when fledglings appear throughout the wetlands of the Laguna, emerging from deep within the tules, out of nests, and from cavities in trees. Often the male parent will take on feeding and protective responsibilities for the youngsters, who are just getting their webbed feet wet, or downy wings in the air. Watching these grebes, ducks, hawks and sparrows, among other birds, taking care of their offspring is a great way to celebrate Father’s Day! Join us for a fun-filled outing along beautiful, secluded Alpha Farm, which is normally closed to the public. We will begin the day at the Laguna Environmental Center (LEC) and carpool out to the site, and then return to the LEC to enjoy our packed lunches and create a list of birds we saw throughout the day.

Lisa Hug originally came to California from the Midwest in 1986. She was very involved with Point Reyes Bird Observatory and eventually became a contract biologist and freelance naturalist in the mid-1990s. She has been teaching for the College of Marin, Petaluma Adult School and Point Reyes Field Institute for over a decade. She was president of Redwood Region Ornithological Society for two years and received the Martha Bentley and Ernestine Smith Award For the Dedication to Wildlife Conservation Education in 2009. She was regional coordinator for the Sonoma County Breeding Bird Atlas and is currently one of the Sonoma County Reviewers for ebird.org . She is the editor for the Birds Checklist for the Laguna de Santa Rosa which can be bought through the Laguna Foundation Store.

Evening of Inner Listening Poetry & Piano:

This evening of listening, people share poems out loud with the audience, and Jerry Green accompanies them on the piano, with his lovely way of blending the beauty of poetry and music. It is an invitation to pause and digest. The combination of poetry and music improvisation is a treat for the audience, further enhanced by the beautiful setting of Russia House, an unusual restaurant in Jenner, that has a character all of its own. Bound to be a delightful evening. Bring your presence along to enjoy. (You are especially invited to bring poems if you have some to share.)

Holotropic Breathwork is a modality developed by Dr. Stan Grof to allow participants to access the healing potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness through breath and music. This brings you a personalized experience that can result in such things as more joy and freedom in personal relationships, resolution of childhood trauma, a transpersonal satori type of breathwork/breathing experience of union with the universe, a deeper understanding of the purpose and meaning of your life, a sense of being more grounded and centered in your life, and a more profound sense of connection to the world around you. This is the one day during the year when holotropic breathwork sessions are coordinated around the world so that all facilitators hold workshops on the same day. Imagine what could happen when thousands or tens of thousands of people join together to breathe as one. Imagine how it might positively impact your life, and how it might contribute to the healing of the planet.

I weave a blend of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Thai, Trigger Point, and/or Reflexology techniques to create a treatment tailored to each client's unique wants and needs. I also often incorporate custom herbal product blends. Sessions are focused around deep healing and rehabilitation. One hour, 90-minute, and two-hour sessions are offered, with extended (two-hour) sessions being a specialty.
 
Home visits are also available.
 
My Specialties Include:

Classic (aka "Swedish") Massage:
Swedish massage technique (also known as classic massage is the traditional ‘feel-good’ type of massage.  It is oil-based, and uses long gliding strokes, kneading, pressing, stretching, and gentle pounding affect nerves, glands, muscles, and circulation.
 
Deep Tissue
Deep Tissue massage is another oil-based method which concentrates on certain areas of the body, and moves very slowly, addressing the deep, underlying layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia.  It is great for helping to relieve chronic pain and tension, and is also very effective for scar tissue healing.
 
Traditional Thai Massage:
Often dubbed ‘Yoga for Lazy People,’ Thai Massage uses pressure along energy lines (called ‘sen’) combined with yoga-like stretches to help allow the flow of necessary energies throughout the body. It is based largely on the Indian tradition of Ayurveda, with also some similarities to Chinese medicine. It is traditionally performed fully clothed on a mat on the floor. Thai massage is suitable for all body types--you do not have to be particularly flexible or agile to enjoy the benefits!
 
Pre-Natal Massage
Pregnancy massage can help ease aches and pains caused by muscle tension and shifts in body weight of expectant moms. The massage will generally take place with the woman lying on her side, bolstered up by several pillows. Moms-to-be who are on bedrest can receive massage the comfort of their own homes, in their own beds.
 
Integrated Thai-Swedish-Deep Tissue
The best of Thai, Swedish, and Deep Tissue techniques blended together to comprise a complete, unique treatment. Performed with oil/lotion on the massage table.
 
Background:
My background includes training in various bodywork modalities, as well as herbal studies, consciousness, and eco-psychology. I studied bodywork at the Trinity College massage school (formerly in San Francisco), and the Institute of Thai Massage in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I also hold an MA in Philosophy & Religion/Integral Ecology from the California Institute of Integral Studies.

WaccoBB WaccoBB Housing/Offices
I am looking for a roommate to share a 2 BR detached townhouse on the west end of the town of Sebastopol off of Bodega Hwy. House is available beginning around May 15th. The unit is located on a quiet cul de sac. Two bedrooms, a full bath (shared), and laundry room upstairs. The two bedrooms are on opposite ends, separated by the bathroom so very private. Small kitchen, dining/sitting area, living room, half bath and patio downstairs. There is a small bonus room that can serve as a guest space or meditation/yoga area. Small half-garage/storage area. The room that is available is the Master bedroom. The room is unfurnished, but furnishings could be made available if needed. The sublet is for $1,100 which includes utilities and internet. I'm sorry that I do not have pictures at this time as the house is being renovated by the owner who is in the process of moving out.

About me:
I am a 57 year old professional man. I work during the weekdays and am often gone on weekends. I am recently divorced, easy-going, quiet, responsible, respectful, and a non-smoker. I have no pets. I lead a quiet meditative lifestyle and do not entertain many guests. I will likely host a meditation group a couple of times a month. I have a 12 year old son who will visit occasionally, but I will mostly spend time with him at my former home where he still lives with his mother.

What I am looking for in a housemate:
Mature, professional, quiet, easy-going, respectful, financially stable, non-smoker. Prefer no pets, but will consider a cat if the right person. Meditator or spiritually-oriented, yet grounded and responsible. Would prefer someone who can commit to a year sublet, but willing to sublet for a shorter period if the right person.

Please email me if interested with a brief bio and anything else you would like to tell me about yourself. Send email to [email protected]

Paris

J'ai vu Paris dans l'ombre
Hypoge o l'on riait trop
Paris une grande amthyste
Ces soldats belges en troupe
Vieilles femmes habilles en Perrette
Aprs le pot-au-lait
L'officier-pilote raconte ses exploits
J'ai entendu la berloque
Mais quel sourire celui de celui qui eut sursis d'appel illimit
Ombre de la statue de Shakespeare sur le Boulevard Haussmann
Laideur des costumes civils des hommes qui ne sont pas partis
Les peintres travaillaient
Mon cur t'adore

- Guillaume Apollinaire
