Newly approved state funding means better broadband infrastructure for Santa Cruz County

Streaming an episode of “Game of Thrones” is serious business. When swept away to such a realm of suspense, there’s no bigger mood killer than the constant fits and starts of a slow Internet connection—imagine, if you will, a sudden stop just as the infamous “Red Wedding” scene begins to unfold. We frantically hit reload, let slip a few choice curse words, or maybe shake angry fists at the Internet gods.

Hitting the brakes on our tech brain drain

Shawn Glanton is standing on Front Street in Downtown Santa Cruz gripping a shiny metal thermos filled with Hawaiian-blend coffee. The early morning sun is creeping over the trees of San Lorenzo Park, and one of Glanton’s coworkers is standing beside him. More arrive over the next 10 minutes—some of them on bicycles and Razor scooters, many hauling backpacks and messenger bags.

Gemini Festival of Goodwill, World Invocation Day

This entire week is a preparation by the New Group of World Servers (NGWS) for the June full moon (Tuesday) and to welcome the Forces of Reconstruction, great outer planetary forces streaming into the Earth at the Gemini Solar Festival. The Gemini Festival at the June full moon is called the Festival of Goodwill and World Invocation Day (recitation of the Great Invocation, the mantram of direction for humanity, hourly around the world). During the (12 degrees) Gemini festival, the Wesak blessing of the will-to-good is released and radiated (Gemini distributes) to humanity. When the will-to-good is received, humanity is then able to radiate goodwill to each other and to the kingdoms. The Gemini Festival is the third of the Three Spring Festivals (triangle of Force), setting the spiritual template and resources for Earth for the rest of the year (‘til next spring). This festival recognizes the true spirit of humanity—aspiring toward and seeking the will of God, dedicated to right human relation. At the full moon, the Divine nature of humanity is recognized. Christ stands with humanity, leader of his people, “the Eldest in a great family of brothers” (Romans VIII, 29.) Each year at the Gemini festival, Christ preaches the last sermon of Buddha, His brother, a sermon calling forth human and spiritual unity, represented by an outflow of love (work of the Christ) and wisdom (work of the Buddha). The forces of reconstruction stream in during the Festival, ushering in an era of pronounced creative activity, rebuilding the tangible world on new creative lines. This necessitates the total destruction of the old forms no longer useful for the new world era. Everyone is invited. Join us everyone for this Festival of Goodwill by reciting the Great Invocation.
