Is fish still safe to eat?

Is fish still safe to eat?

I think it depends on the fish. If it was a blue fin tuna that just swam over from the Japanese reactors, I don’t think I would eat it. But other fish is OK.

What are your thoughts on UCSC growth?

I think it's a bad idea unless they make everyone just bring a bicycle to get around.

Would you support the creation of a desalination plant in Santa Cruz? Why? Why not?

Would you support the creation of a desalination plant in Santa Cruz? Why? Why not?

I don’t. I think the same technology that they would be using for the desal would be useful for recycling water, and a lot cheaper with less environmental impact.

Would you support the creation of a sanctuary camp for homeless people in Santa Cruz?

I think a camp would be a really good place for homeless people to have a safer place to be. I think it's a good idea.

What’s the stupidest thing you did as a kid?

What’s the stupidest thing you did as a kid?

When I was 8 years old, I went to the refrigerator to get  a drink out of the milk carton and I pulled the refrigerator into my face and knocked off my tooth. Straight up.

What’s the next big thing?

What’s the next big thing?

Taking a tube from LA to San Francisco in half an hour going 700 miles per hour on the hyperloop. I'd definitely take it! I lived down in Santa Barbara and It would be awesome to go from Santa Barbara to Santa Cruz in 26 minutes and not have to sit in traffic. I love it!

The Binding of Edmund McMillen

How a Santa Cruz designer created one of the most unlikely hits in video game history

 

Sun in Leo, Rosy Star, Venus and Uranus Retrograde

Three major celestial events occur this week. Wednesday, the Sun enters Leo, highlighting the heart center of everyone. Leo is a sign of deep sensitivity (along with Cancer). Wednesday is also the feast day of St. Mary Magdalene, one of the most misunderstood women in the Bible. Saturday, July 25, Venus turns stationary retrograde at 0 Virgo (progressed Regulus, the Law, Hall of Records). Venus retrogrades for 44 days and nights, forming one petal of a five-pointed rosy star (pentagram) in the sky (five retrogrades over eight years = star). Venus retrograde turns values upside down. Our usual sense of beauty, values, the real price of things, relationships—all turn into a bundle of confusion. We don’t seem to know anything. Luxury goods are mispriced, values are jumbled, we wonder who that person is we’re in relationship with. We don’t know where our money is or where it’s gone. Venus, in daily life, represents values (resources, money, possessions and quality of relationships). Venus retrograde asks, “What do I value?” Venus retrograde puts us in touch with what has changed and what is truly of value in our lives. Venus retrogrades from 0 Virgo to 14 degrees Leo (July 25-Sept. 6). Leo is about the self and our creativity, which is how we come to know and value ourselves. We “know ourselves through what we create.” In Venus (values) retrograde (inner focus) we will ask, “What are values (not just money and finances)? What are my values? What do I create? How do I value my creations? Do I value myself?” Sunday, Uranus—planet of all things new, revelatory and revolutionary—also retrogrades (from 20 to 16 degrees Aries) until the full moon of Christmas Day. Five months of Uranus retrograde. In July and continuing on through the following months we have many planets retrograding. Things therefore slow down. Everyone’s focus becomes subjective, hidden by veils and curtains. A time when inner reserves of strength are available. A time of protection.
