The Great Social Divide

Facebook seemed like a good idea when it started back in 2004; but I’m not so sure anymore. I can’t imagine that Zukerberg ever dreamed his software application would create such a stir with its lengthy tentacles reaching the world’s corners and consumers far and wide.

Who could…

A Generation Lost

I don't know when we lost America, but we did. Maybe it was the 70's.

Back in the 60's there was still a real zeal and a passionate burning feeling about America by Americans for America.  We were still proud and were willing to stand up against unjust wars and corporate greed.  Many felt so strongly they burned their draft cards and defected to Canada. There were more…

The Me Generation Meets Facebook

Me, me, me, it's all about me... Facebook - it may be social media, but it is most certainly devoid of any social graces.

What started out in 2004 as an experiment in social networking has by today created 1.2 billion over-sharers in what has now become the age of over-sharing.

Today, at least one out of every fourteen people in the world has a Facebook…

San Pedro – The New Wild West

San Pedro, California - It's most certain that recent decisions by our lawmakers have resulted in making law enforcement more difficult and uncertain in today’s world. Unless we can reverse the present trend toward lawlessness, disorder, and uncertain justice, we run the risk of losing all respect for the law and law enforcement officers.

Gone to the Ducks!

Now I've had animals roam my backyard wall for many years but today's entry was a real surprise. We've seen possums, skunks, raccoons and more out there but yesterday a beautiful teal headed mallard flew in.

We watched him walk up and down the wall for quite a while from inside the house.  After…

Back to the Future - If only...

The 1950's.  Now that was an era.  I think today's America, the new America, was actually born in the '50s.  I was fortunate enough to be born in Burbank, CA on April 4, 1950 and I still remember much of the '50s.

We lived in North Hollywood, CA and grew up just like the kids in the movie "Sandlot" (1993). It was pick-up baseball games, football,…

Christmas: Past, Present & Future

When President Obama was pressed by Barbara Walters in a November 22nd interview about the failed roll-out of Obamacare and his legacy, he responded by saying "the good thing about when you're down is that usually you got nowhere to go but up."

His response begs the question, where do Americans go when they're down? What do we do? How do we…

Affordable Boat Act

The online Affordable Boat Exchange (ABE) website has been set up for all to register for a boat at their convenience.

My Barbershop

After 45 years in business at the same location on 25th St. and Western Ave. in San Pedro, Henry at Harbor Village Barbers wondered where all his business had gone. Down to one chair with a second barber coming in a couple of days a week, the shop's business was in a downward spiral.

This is a traditional manly man's barbershop. There are no stylists to be found…

How the Mower Saved Detroit

Forget complex business plans, a political overhaul or massive infrastructure projects. Maybe what will help save the crumbling city of Detroit is a rotating set of mower blades.

Detroit has been on the decline, financially and population-wise, for many years for lots of reasons, not the least of which is the troubled auto industry. With numerous abandoned homes and vacant lots dotting the city, it might be difficult to really call Detroit a “city” anymore. Urban blight, maybe, but…

Home Values Likely to Decline When QE3 Ends

Sales of previously occupied homes have hit their second-highest peak of the last three years, reports Reuters. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, certain that the economy is improving, has now proposed bringing the current round of quantitative easing, or QE3, to a close.

Every month since last September, the Fed has purchased $85 billion in mortgage-backed securities…

The End of the Earth as We Knew It

With the sky literally falling in Russia last week the conspiracy theorists are at it again. The Russians think the meteor was some new weapons system being tested by the Americans and many nuts just think it's the beginning of the end of the earth.

While the Earth may not be dying anytime soon in the physical or…

Christopher Dorner - One Angry Man

Former LAPD officer and Navy reservist Christopher Dorner born June 4, 1979 in New York state has obviously reached his limit. What's telling about the series of attacks in Southern California over the past week that left three people dead is the back story which psychologists say may go all the way to his childhood.

On Sunday Feb. 3, Dorner allegedly shot and killed a…

Politics and Politicians - My Turn

I'm not a political person. I don't think like one or act like one. Maybe that's why I have such a hard time understanding the nature of the game. Be it family politics, corporate politics or government politics, I'm still baffled to this day by the need, of some, to lie, cheat, steal and orate their way to a better position in life.

But, I guess that's just human nature.

Where do…

The Future of Food from the Sea By Dr. Steve Gaines, Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, UC Santa Barbara By the middle of this century, we project that global demand for animal protein will double from where it is today.
