Columnist Thinks Power for Homes Is Being Wasted
September 21, 2017
I enjoy reading my copy of Bloomberg Business Week but the March 27, 2017 – April 2, 2017 was just full of surprises. For example, the F.B.I. gave a guy that just agreed to be an informant several high-tech devices, a set of keys with a hidden recorder and realistic Starbucks gift cards that recorded audio. The bad guy working for the good guys sometimes wore a white dress shirt with a button that concealed a tiny camera. In the same magazine on page 72 was a lot about Wendy Williams, such as work experience and education – she was in the class of 1982 at Ocean Township high school, Oakhurst, New Jersey. I’m interrupting this commentary to bring you a news flash from Moscow. It was just announced the University of the Red Star will open this Fall an extension program in Washington D. C. teaching conversational Russian to White House and other staffers. Class to convene in the Russian Embassy. FBI and CIA agents need not apply. Both the school and parking are free. Continuing with the Southern California Edison Company and other electric companies as noted in the Long Beach Press Telegram. California producers so much alternative energy that enough power for 45,000 homes was wasted last year. March 20, 2017. The truth, as I see it, the Culver City City Council doesn’t care about these extremely high charges, because they charge us an eleven percent tax to fund the wage and pension costs. How many of us remember Albert Vera’s great idea to buy Edision’s system and have our own company within our city limits? It just doesn’t seem that long ago when darn near every community elected their city council and board of education officials at large. The courts and Sacramento have been taking small baby steps to change the system. Many of us can see within five or ten years even Culver City will see more representation for Fox Hills, Blair Hills and the Condos along Jefferson. In Glendale, they recently started electing their leaders by district and couldn’t be happier with the participation. How many of us took the time on Thursday, March 30, 2017 to notify and thank our medical team. It was National Doctor’s Day. Florida’s Fourth District Court of Appeal ruled Wednesday, March 29, 2017 that police may not pull data from the black box of a vehicle without a warrant. The court ruled computerized cars should have as much privacy protections as smartphones. This is no April fool’s joke. California and 44 other states that tax sales will force the Amazon company to collect tax on sales. Soon Netflix users will pay eleven percent utility users tax as well.
Have you read the November 2016 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine? For more than a decade, studies have linked excess bodyweight to several forms of cancer, such as breast and kidney. Some researchers estimate that obesity is responsible for twenty percent of all cancers.Paleontologists found some of the world’s largest dinosaur footprints in Northwestern Australia. The tracks could be as old as 115 million years old measure nearly five feet nine inches in length. A monthly survey of teacher job openings in South Dakota shows a declining trend. If you are an educator and need a regular check, check with the teacher Placement Center in Sioux Falls. For those men with enlarged prostate there is a new treatment which a minimally invasive procedure which is a tiny implant to pull back excess prostate tissue. It eases symptoms without need for medication or surgery. Can I ask, was California’s $350 million cost to rip out peoples’ lawns worth the price? I’ll let you be the judge. U.S. News ranked the ten best cities among the 100 largest Unites States metro areas. 1.Denver, Colorado 2.Austin, Texas 3.Fayetteville, Arkansas 4.Raleigh, North Carolina 5.Colorado Springs, Colorado 6.Boise, Idaho 7.Seattle, Washington 8.Washington, D.C. 9.San Francisco, California 10.San Jose, California And I would have thought Culver City would be number! The commander of the Jewish War Veteran Post 617 in Culver City, Jerry King just informed me Tibor Rubin a Medal of Honor recipient and a Holocaust Victim was renamed to the Long Beach VA Medical Center. If you ever want to read an inspirational story of a teenager thrown into a concentration camp, enlisted upon release a fought in Korea, captured and almost nightly snuck out to return with food to help keep others stay alive. The Tibor Rubin VA Medical Center’ says it all. A friend gave me a copy of the March 2017 issue of Reason Magazine. When Jeff Sessions was nominated as a federal judge in 1986, one comment that got him into trouble was a joke about the Ku Klux Klan. Sessions had said he thought the KKK was ok until I found out they smoked pot. A stupid joke.
