What are the pros and cons of a desalinization plant in Santa Cruz County?

What are the pros and cons of a desalinization plant in  Santa Cruz County?

I think the pros are more jobs in Santa Cruz, people working on the plant, etc. The cons would be if the plant itself creates a lot of pollution or makes a lot of noise in a residential neighborhood, or if it requires an increase in taxes.

What’s your take on the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy for the military?

What’s your take on the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy for the military?

I think it's long overdue that it should be abolished. It's just plain discriminatory, pure and simple. And like all things discriminatory, there’s just no place for it in our society.

Would you go to a rodeo if there was one in Santa Cruz County?

Would you go to a rodeo if there was one in Santa Cruz County?

The rodeo's not really my thing but if there was one in Santa Cruz County and somebody I knew wanted to go I'd go. It sounds like something different and interesting. And it's a skill to stay on a wild animal. So I'd be into it. Why not?

Do you prefer mainstream or independent films?

Do you prefer mainstream  or independent films?

I enjoy the independent ones more, when we get a chance to get out which isn't very often now since we have a baby.

Smells Like Team Spirit

The organizers of TEDx Santa Cruz don’t just talk about this year’s theme, ‘radical collaboration’—they live it

 

Pluto Retrograde, Aries New Moon, Lyrid Meteor Showers

As the Lyrid meteors, radiating from the star Vega in the Harp constellation, begin showering heaven and earth with light, Pluto, planet of transformation (or die) turns stationary retrograde (Thursday, April 16), 15 degrees Capricorn. Retrogrades have purpose, allowing humanity time to review, reassess, research and reinvent while returning to previous situations. Retrogrades are times of inner activity, seeds sown in bio-dynamically prepared soil. Pluto retrograde is the most serious and resolute of retrogrades—a pure tincture, or, as in homeopathy, a “constitutional” touching the essences of all that matters. Pluto offers deep insight into confusion or puzzlement and areas where transformation is still incomplete. It’s valuable to have one’s astrology chart to follow what area of life the major planets— especially Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto—are influencing. These outer planets have long-term and lasting effects on our psyche, inner/outer life events, how people see us and how we see and process our world. Pluto, retrograde for five months (until Sept. 24) offers deep earthquakes of change, awakens humanity to the task of building (Capricorn) the new culture and civilization, flailing our inner world about, deepening us until we transform and do things differently. Pluto is an unrelenting teacher. New moon (29 Aries) is Saturday, April 18. With the personality-building keynote, “Let form again be sought.” Mars anchors the new creative fires of Aries into our world. The New Group of World Servers participates together in the new moon festival, while also preparing for the Taurus Wesak, Buddha Full Moon Festival (May 3). Join us everyone.
