Interesting. It seems to be there's safety in numbers. PG&E is seeking a permit to trim backtrees on the Stevens Creek Trail, where there are power lines, but will be chopping themdown in Almaden's TJ Martin/Jeffrey Fontana Parks. What gives?

Almaden's Efforts to Save the Trees - 05/24/10 02:54 AM
I attended the rally yesterday with about 60 other concerned residents. It was not surprising that there were not as many people this time around, as PG&E, and the city have done a lot to downplay and stall theurgency of this event. There are many discrepencies in their reports vs. those of concerned residents,engineers, the Audobon Society, Sierra Club an more, who all had representatives at the rally.
Beware; Prop 16 is a wolf in sheep's clothing. This will give them more carte blanche to many issues like these. Ask yourself; why would they fund this proposition?An interesting link. A (0 comments)

I Can Her the Light! - 05/19/10 08:36 PM
Or can I? The famous U.N. study on whether cell phones cause cancer hasdetermined it is inconclusive. It hasn't been long enough, some people havebeen found to have cancer on the side of their brain where they hold theirphones, so what's there to conclude? Be safe and use blue tooth deviceswhen you can (or when they work!). Here is the study. You decide. (2 comments)

Witnessed this in Times Square a few weeks ago on the large MTV video screen across from MTV's headquarters. The feed was at this location: http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/timessquare/ on cam4.No one knew what it was, but some of us thought it might be a sociology experiment; seeing what reactions people would have to watching someone literally whip themselves into submission or whatever. Here is a description and a link to MTV's page: In Dissolution, wherein Abramović appears alone in a beautifully lit studio setting repeatedly lashing her bare back with a whip until she begins to tremble, the artist's focus returns to her (2 comments)
