Super Bowl Sunday Sunset

2013-02-05 10:21 PM

Brian Peddicord: 1181's comment is worth considering: art is indeed supposed to promote controversy — if differences of opinion are not wanted then perhaps what's being presented is not, is not intended to be art.

882P here and I called your photo "beautiful" --- I also thought it was staged and you and your friend basically acknowledged that. This was not a scene that you just happened upon. Fine, no problem. As others (and I, too) have said, it's beautiful and unusual. Congrats to you!

I have indeed posted pictures on edhat, quite a few in the past, including now cliched sunsets, and they were met with praise and criticism, too. I learned from the criticism and tried not to glow too much with the praise. There are plenty of photographers on edhat now so I do not bother anymore to send in photos, except rarely, so you can hold your criticism, constructive or not.

The fitness center at Vista del Monte is open to the public and offers a large number of aqua aerobics classes as well as personal trainers who have a lot of experience working with clients with various joint replacement issues. I'd also recommend Zumba Gold and there are a number of classes offered locally. Check it out at Zumba.com.

I haven't knocked on strangers' doors myself, yet, but I've been tempted, for izote (yucca) flowers, but they are too high up (I have a neighbor who makes soup with them). Loquats call to me, loudly. My parents have gotten callers at their door about their fruit trees. We have a neighborhood network between citrus, persimmons and avocados. I sure could go for an avocado tonight.

Lack of Kaiser Permanente Facilitie...

2013-02-05 09:45 PM

A very wise, old, and reliable professional in the medical field, and good friend of mine for many years warned me about KP...after his daughter was treated there with a very sad and dismal result. In his own words he said, "There are dead people there they don't even know about." The message he was conveying I remember to this day - minimal attention to the patient with little if any concern for the outcome. Very recently...my sister-in-law's father was told by a KP physician that there was no hope for his melanoma cancer. Her family has since received a secondary medical opinion outside of the KP system which is positively different (UCLA).

The idea, if they are not scammers, is nice to put unused fruit and vegetables put to good use--even if it profit for strangers. I see a lot of citrus, perfectly good, rotting because property owners don't pick it. It bothers me to see any food thrown away.
I wonder though, what about liability? There's no way around a lawsuit if a person picking with your permission fell off a ladder or tripped.

I did it myself. Fortunately, the house is on a raised floor and is single story, so access was not too bad. Got all the Leviton QuickPort parts from California Electric off Milpas, plenum cable from Home Depot. Newegg also has plenum in stock.

If your house is multi-story and on slab, make sure whomever you hire has experience with this situation. Some commercial installers work mostly with offices where a false cieling or raised floor makes the work easier (well, at least different).

Cat6 vs Cat5e is a no-brainer, the difference in cost won't be that much unless you are really pinching pennies (in which case you should do it yourself) or live in a mansion.

I had a hip replacement within the last 6 months. I was proactive. I sought out a physical therapist and then, when my post surgical program was ending with the therapist, put the therapist together with a personal trainer and defined a program going forward A good physical therapist is key and it is covered by most insurances. Degreed personal trainers often have units in rehabilitation and a good one is worth the time and energy as well as the $$. Don't sit still if your hip was done well you can reclaim your life!

You didn't give much information about your situation, so this is a difficult question to answer. I assume that you have finished your rehab but you should check with your surgeon or the PT who worked with you. Make sure you have a clear understanding on whether they want you to follow movement precautions and for how long.
Do not expect personal trainers or group exercise instructors to answer these questions for you, they are not qualified to do so. The earlier suggestion for water exercise is excellent.

Roger for this to happen, his defense had to file a motion to declare a doubt of his competency to stand trial. The typical process is the defendant is interviewed by a mental health professional who writes a report that is then sent to the judge. It is in no way a punishment.

Shots Fired

2013-02-05 04:54 PM

The loud boom sounded like a cherry bomb or M-80. I also heard at least one more pop that sounded like a regular firecracker which seemed to come from a different direction.

How come every time I think it's a gun shot I'm told it was a firecracker or backfire? Then when it sounds like fireworks to me they say it's a gunshot?

Also, I'd trust people whose livelihood depends on repeat business than a bigger chain, in certain instances.

Except the Mythbusters episode being referenced here dealt with guns being fired at 90 degrees into the air, AKA straight up. It didn't deal at all with bullets fired at an angle less than 90 degrees, which has been proven on more than one occasion to have the potential to kill people. There's a great thing on StackExchange about this with some great math by actual physicists instead of people who are paid to make this stuff look great on TV.

Not to mention the fact that they mention in the Mythbusters episode (episode 50, by the way) they mention that bullets fired below 90 degrees can travel a great distance and inflict harm.

The moral of the story is this: TV is not a reliable source for information. Do your own research, educate yourself and stop listening to Adam and Jamie as if they are the Only True Scientific Gospel.

I went to see one of them in the 90's. The first thing is that she is not a palm reader, she barely looked at mine. She closed her eyes while she spoke, which makes her a psychic. I feel she gave me very good advice, but she also tried to hook me into coming back. Perhaps everyone should try something like this once. It's always good to look at yourself.

Say what you will, and ridicule all you like - I know that there are people around who are psychically gifted, and have direct personal evidence to that fact.

My daughter consulted a woman who says she can communicate with the souls of departed loved ones. In the process, this psychic told my daughter something about my father, that he never told anyone, but me. In effect, I am the ONLY living human being to know this story about his life and times, and it is definitely VERY UNIQUE to him, and to the place where he happened to be at the time.

My own brother told my daughter there was no way the psychic had it right. That's because he wasn't there that afternoon 40 years ago, when my father told the story to ME.

Actually bullets fired up into the air do not have the velocity to kill. They fall back to earth at the very same 166 ft/s everything else does and bounce off of most things they hit... Search Mythbusters for a more detailed explanation.

Kaiser began as Kaiser Steel, got massive contracts to build ships on San Francisco Bay during WWll, imported thousands of workers to work the shipyards and found it cost effective to provide their own medical care to their workers... workers were in short supply then, it was good to keep them healthy. After the war they kept the medical thing going and expanded it to other big employers.

My parents got in through my dad's employer, UC, and my brother and I were born in Kaiser Oakland and Kaiser Vallejo in the 1960s.

Recently my mother received excellent surgical care at Kaiser Richmond and through the Kaiser Hospice in Alameda. I think like everything else in medicine it depends on where you live and exactly what you need. In her case, she found a great lung surgeon in Richmond, which was close enough to where she lived. And several years later she found wonderful Buddhist hospice nurses at home in Alameda. Kaiser's treatment of medicare patients was superb, in her case. I am very thankful.

If you are on felony probation you cannot own a gun. After probation, I'm unsure. From the story, "Thomas Christensen, 21, will not be allowed to possess any firearms and will also be ordered to spend 240 days in County Jail as part of the terms of the agreement, prosecutor Kevin Weichbrod said." It's unclear if he will EVER be allowed to own a gun.

058 - There is no "gun show loophole" in California. It was closed by state legislation years ago.

California is one of six states that require all firearm transactions including private party transactions (or a sale from a private collection) to go through a firearms dealer (including all gun show transactions). The gun show loophole currently exists in 33 states. There are 11 other states that have rules that limit gun show transactions in some ways, but not as restrictive as California, Colorado, Illinois, New York, Oregon and Rhode Island.

It really does not matter as long as the consumers want the products. The consumers make the rules - anyone on a paper chase knows that. Local consumers send their message loud and clear....to the great and deserved benefit of the VC.

Jesse's stitched my Uggs when they had a small tear - the first time. Used sand colored thread and it wasn't very noticable at all. Second time when the stitches came undone, my husband took them back and asked them to patch them. He meant stitch, but they took him literally so they cut a piece of suede and GLUED it over the hole. It looked so crappy. Just be sure to specify that you want the tear STITCHED not patched.

Decker's owns the trademark and fights aggressively to protect it, though the word predates them by a long, long time. Worse, it's a bit of a scam to flog the word "Australia" when they're based in Goleta and get work done cheap in China with second-rate materials, while several authentic Aussie sheepskin boot makers continue working with pride and top-notch goods but get grief for calling traditional uggs Uggs. Compare the quality some time. It's all about branding and investing in a good legal team to keep profits up.

It is a proven fact that it is unnecessary and polluting to leave any engine idling for over 30 seconds. When you stop in front of a store, in your driveway, at the curb (to make your cell phone calls) and then you leave your engine idling, for your convenience or to keep your car warm or cool, you are a polluter. Turn off your car!

Diesel is different, or so I've heard. However,for the non-diesel crowd: I witness my friends and people in all sorts of situations letting their vehicles idle on and on and on. Pollution.

If it isn't a degenerating or injured bone or disk problem then chiros can help with the muscle stuff or a misalignment.

Lack of Kaiser Permanente Facilitie...

2013-02-05 10:22 AM

Got Kaiser in LA when I was about 12. What a difference it made to me and my family. We had access to medical care and pharmacy services without bankruptcy or use of the emergency hospitals. Stayed on Kaiser until moved to SB where it was not available. Missed it then and now. My mother and father stayed on Kaiser in the LA and then Ventura area and are always full of praise about the considerate and competent nature of its service. My sister is a nurse and vouches for the quality Kaiser provides. Kaiser is a remarkable service that should be emulated nationwide. Those snobs who want to believe "you only get what you pay for" need to understand that what you are paying for with many medical providers and services is huge profit or very large annual incomes.

You have to admit this guy chose to make a spectacle out of his suicide.

I don't judge this person for killing himself, but I think the way he did it wasn't OK.

I'm on San Andres and someone was knocking on my door at 3:30am. But, when I looked outside, I saw about 5 cop cars and a dozen of cops walking around the street and sidewalk, kinda fast. Wasn't sure if it was the bad guy or the cops knocking.

When I got downstairs and out my door, a couple Cop cars zoomed off, then came back, and they arrested some guy and were putting him in the vehicle, while he was screaming in a high-pitched voice.

I heard one Officer trying to calm him down, like he knew him and his family, saying they were gonna get him some help and he was gonna call his father... But, the Officer was being very very gentle and nice with him. That was happening on San Andres & Victoria.

I didn't see any other neighbors outside their houses. The other Officers were rushing back to their vehicles, so I didn't want to ask them what happened. But, I would really like to know if it was the Officers that were knocking on my door. They weren't POUNDING, but knocked a few times.

It's funny, I almost stopped posting pictures on EdHat because of all the negative comments I often receive. But, when I took this candid (not-staged) photo of my friend this weekend and got home and reviewed it, I thought to myself, "Wow, this is awesome, I bet people would enjoy this." I have no shame in admitting it.

Why is it that it's ok for others to tell you your work is great, but when you say your own work is great, now you are a some sort of jerk? It's an interesting world we live in. I will never apologize for loving myself and appreciating my own art.

The reason for the disclaimer was because in the past when I posted photos, I immediately would have some Brooks dropout start picking it apart and telling me how my ISO was too low or some other technical photography criticism. I do this for fun, so I am not concerned with all that. If a photo is cool, I could care less whether I had the correct aperture.

Lack of Kaiser Permanente Facilitie...

We have Kaiser in town. It's called Sansum, though. It's the exact same standard and model of care, based in the beginning on basic HMO style medical care and evolving to what we have now, which is...kinda still like that. Need a specialist? Get bounced around within the Sansum system over and over until you get the right one. Then be told there's not a whole lot you can do if the problem you have isn't within their scope, you'll have to start all over elsewhere.

It's the same exact way with Kaiser. The reason they come out best in large hospital surveys is just that....large hospitals have different standards. If they came into town they wouldn't BE a large hospital, people.

I the OP is talking about acute back pain, something that just started and is getting worse without home treatment.

Yes, a doctor should be seen just in case. But the comments that it could be cancer or something are just out of bounds. That kind of pain comes on more subtly and doesn't progress to extreme pain in six days. This also doesn't sound like a case for surgery or spinal manipulation. It's a lower back issue, which is usually easily remedied once you figure out where the injury or strain is coming from. (Could even be your glutes or thighs being too tight.) Why scare people based on something you guys know nothing about?

Back pain can be complex to unravel but yes, see a medical doctor (osteopath) before seeing a chiropractor and avoid surgery if you don't absolutely need it. After 15 years of pain, I'm finally pain-free after seeing an acupuncturist PLUS doing yoga and core work 4x week, walking or biking every day (and giving up running), getting a memory foam bed, getting massages 2x/ a month, and seeing a chiropractor 6x a year. Not unlike keeping your weight down, having back pain is something you have to work at not getting after you've had it (at least, that's been my and others I know experience).

2013-02-05 09:08 AM

Whenever there is any crime, particularly robbery, theft, drunk and drug related offenses and including driving under the influence, the first place to look is the Chumash casino. A two months ago an 18 year old DUI was involved in a fatal auto accident in Santa Maria and admitted he was coming from the casino. Only a couple of weeks ago two tribal members under the influence of drugs were killed in a hit and run accident on the 154 on their way from the casino. The hit and run driver that killed at least one of them was found at the casino.The Chumash casino is the hub of all criminal activity in this county and attracts criminal elements from over 100 miles in every direction. It is almost single handedly the reason highway 154/San Marcos Pass Road has become a veritable "slaughter alley"!

Agree with 80P; before the knife or any other invasive treatment, consider a gentler approach.

Depending on what ails you there are obviously many paths to take.

Suffering from functional scoliosis (curvature of the lower spine so severe my clothes needed to be tailored to fit properly) for years and mild to severe lower back pain, I went to a few extremely competent yoga instructors and after finding out how misaligned my body was from flat feet to rounded shoulders and everything in between slumped and distorted, decided to literally "straighten out" my back with exercises in yoga and the complement of daily walks.

Based on the East Indian Ayurvedic health system, yoga also helps with dietary changes away from the heavy meat and animal product intake to healthier vegetable, legume and fruit mainstays in the diet. After a while most meats actually start to smell and taste bad as the body adjusts to healthier fare.

It took a while but it works. After several years, now have no pain, full athletic ability, straight back and posture, strong abdomen, even have arches restored to my feet while turning fat to muscle and losing weight.

After seeing all the comments for invasive medical intervention, it is no surprise how few people go for the holistic " from the inside out approach". We place our faith in someone else to fix us.

At 63 am in the best shape of my life, with routine bicycling, nordic skiing, hiking and aerobic style yoga with 20 year olds. And no meds of any kind.

@884. I'm with you. Why is the question.
Why because Santa Barbarans want to look all weathy and hip but ultimately a majority of them are cheap. They settle for HMO/Sansum cattle drive healthcare and then they complain about it all the time yet don't do anything about it. They still sign up for HMO or some IPA that gives the doctor all the power to choose their care. But like my sister-in-law, she signed away all of her own power and signed away her acupuncturist and chiro who were helping her more than the medical doctor. Now she is complaining 24/7 about her back pain but is too cheap to pay her massage therapist/acupunturist and chiro herself. Apparently, Sansum doctors won't let her see these even though her insurance says she has it.

The key here is the onset. Was there a sudden traumatic movement, strain or impact that brought on the symptoms or a long gradual onset getting progressively worse? Typically pain and burning sensations that radiate down the leg are symptoms of a herniated or damaged spinal disc (one or more). Most good Orthopeodic doctors will attempt a number of possible theraputic and conservative treatments to alleviate the pain and strengthen supporting muscles structures. This INCLUDES losing weight if one has excessive weight around the torso thus straining the spinal column. A soft brace may also help. If surgery is ultimately needed there have been and still are a number of new procedures being used minimizing the surgical intrusion and using artificial discs or spacers.

I highly recommend seeing a medical doctor first. I hate to be an alarmist but my husband's lower back pain turned out to be cancer. If he had let it go for 6 more months he would be dead by now. I, also, had an upper back pain that would not go away for months while seeing a chiropractor. It turned out I had a sleep disorder and the reason my back was not healing is because I was not getting enough sleep. Healing happens during sleep. Once, I was treated for the sleep disorder, the pain went away. And by the way, my health and energy went way up, too!

I am astonished that so many people seem to enjoy ridicule of others and feel so self confident that only their opinions are valid. I believe in the evidence that there are clairvoyant
people but do not personally consult them for myself. This doesn't place me in any position to judge those who do.
My mother told me that if I couldn't say something good to keep my mouth shut. That advice has generally served me well. Rather akin to the definition, "Tact is the art of making ones point without making enemies."

882P.... I am not a professional photographer (obvious) but the lingo in the photography world IS capture, as in, capturing a moment in time. Most every profession, or club if you will, has it's own unique vernacular. It does make you feel like 'one of the gang' when you learn the correct lingo!

It _is_ funny if the photographer described his own photo as "awesome", especially since it is quite likely that his beautiful snap was a staged effort. Me, I don't think of photos, especially not my own, as "captures", the hunting imagery, although a photo does freeze a scene in one's memory.

Well, sometimes I do feel happily I captured the fleeting feeling of a moment in the step of a bird or a nod of a flower. As for being a pro: that's someone who makes his living from photography and probably applies to few (any?) of us here.

Actually I heard there was a really loud blast then several not so loud then there was people running around. A small red car was involved as well as a white Honda civic with tinted windows. One witness overheard someone in one of the cars say something about having shot some people on Kowalski street. I think the police went over to an address to check that out. I would have stayed up later and got all the information but got really bummed when I found out that the Scanner Report comment section was closed because a few of my Subjects got mad at their King Roger and condemned him. Oh by the way theres a pursuit comming North on 101 from Highway 33..

The Kaiser model is (partly) the way of the future. Healthcare costs necessitate how it is delivered. We need more walk-in clinics and we do need healthy lifestyle eduction.

For complaints about Cottage, a non-profit, "gobbling up" St. Francis and Goleta Valley, they shut down because of lack of business.

Love Birds

2013-02-05 06:58 AM

I wish I had opportunity to see the Eurasian Collared Doves. My National Wildlife Federation Bird Book says on the Eurasian Collared Doves:

In the mid-1970s, Eurasian Collared-Doves escaped from an aviary in the Bahamas; by 1978 some had dispersed to Florida. The species has since multiplied and spread into North America, especially into suburbs of the South and West; it is expected to be abundant across the continent in a few decades. A smaller, paler avicultural form "ringed Turtle-Dove", is often seen in southern states, and some birds in North America appear to be of mixed derivation. VOICE: a harsh ho-hooo-ho, repeated also a nasal haaow.

NB: Locally, and recently, I've seen signs on trucks for "jumper's" and "painting's." You would think sign-makers might double check with someone before they pick up the brush. My all time personal fave was a Greek grocer in Belmont, MA who did his own signs and wrote them the way he spoke his own brand of very charmingly accented English: "Ekks, $1.00 per dusan." How could you not love that? He was definitely part of what gave the neighborhood its unique character.
