On this date (March 19) in 1848, Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp was born in Monmouth, Warren County, Illinois. Named for his father's good friend and military colleague, Wyatt Berry Stapp, Earp's youth was marked by the upheaval of the American Civil War and his family's frequent relocation between the Midwest and Pacific Coast. Wyatt was married, then a widower, a lawman in Missouri, and jailed for stealing horses in the Indian Territory, all before his twenty-fourth birthday. He served as a lawman in the Kansas cow-towns and did a creditable job in difficult circumstances. In 1879, Earp relocated to Tombstone, Arizona Territory, along with his four brothers, and their families. In not quite two and a half years there, Earp worked as a stage-line operator, a saloon-keeper, and a local, county, and Federal peace officer. In October 1881, Wyatt marched to the O.K. Corral with his brothers Virgil and Morgan and John Henry "Doc" Holliday, killing three members of the "cow-boy" gang of outlaws. This event sparked ret ...

Fukushima's Radioactive Water Could Reach U.S. Pacific Coast by April Water containing radioactive cesium mixed into the Pacific Ocean after the 2011 9.0-magnitude earthquake in Japan, and it's only a matter of time before that tainted water reaches the U.S. West Coast. Now scientists say the radioactive water from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant could arrive on California, Oregon and Washington coasts in just a few weeks. Health officials continue to stress that none of the tainted water has reached the California coast to this point, according to a SFGate.com report, and that even when the water crashes on the coast in April, cesium levels are expected to be low. Along the West Coast of Canada, however, researchers said they are beginning to see traces of cesium in water samples offshore, according to a LiveScience.com report. During the annual American Geophysical Union's Ocean Sciences Meeting in Honolulu, it was announced that cesium-134 and cesium-137 isotopes have been detected. Scientis ...
Last night on the CBS Evening News Scott Pelley started 'the world's biggest drug kingpin has been captured at a Resort on the Pacific Coast in Mexico'. I asked myself what Hamid Karzai was doing vacationing in Mazatlan and then they said is was some guy named 'Chapo'. I guess they really captured the second biggest drug kingpin. The last time I checked, the biggest was still President of Afghanistan, and being fed by my tax dollars.

Black Mexicans see pride in lost history Communities starting to discover roots, fight discrimination By LAURENCE ILIFF / The Dallas Morning News SAN NICOLAS, Mexico – Dark-skinned Mexicans along the southern Pacific Coast have long sensed their roots are distinct from the mixed-race majority dominated by European and Indian blood. But until relatively recently, many had only a sketchy idea why. "A popular story says we came from a stranded African ship," said Jorge Añorve Zapata, 38, a schoolteacher from the Costa Chica, or "small coast," south of Acapulco. "It's a nice story. But as it turns out, the truth isn't so nice because we came in chains as slaves and were the first ones to drown." Now, African-Mexicans along the coast are discovering their roots, countering negative stereotypes, and trying to find their place in Mexican history. Government-issued textbooks describe coastal residents as "festive" dancers who happily raise cattle and corn. Crude drawings depict the physical characteristics of ...

Did you know that Jackie Robinson’s best sport at UCLA was football?? Jackie Robinson is known for breaking baseball’s color barrier in 1947, but it is well known that he was talented in numerous sports, including football, basketball, track, and tennis. What is not so well known is that baseball, surprisingly, may have been Robinson’s worst sport. Robinson was born into a family of sharecroppers in Cairo, Georgia, in 1919, but his family moved to Pasadena a year later. Growing up the youngest of five children, Robinson was not the athletic star of the family. His older brother Mack was. Mack Robinson took the silver medal in the 1936 Berlin Olympics, coming in second place to Jesse Owens. Jackie Robinson decided to take up sports at Muir High School, where he lettered in football, basketball, track, and baseball. He also played on the tennis team. In 1936, Robinson won the junior boys singles championship in the annual Pacific Coast *** Tennis Tournament. After high school Robinson attended Pa ...

West Coast or Pacific Coast are terms for the westernmost coastal states of the United States, usually California, Oregon, and Washington. More specifically, the term refers to an area defined on the east by the Cascade Range, Sierra Nevada and Mojave Desert and on the west by the Pacific Ocean. The U.S. Census groups the five states of California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii together as the Pacific States division.

English language has "borrowed" words for centuries. But is it now lending more than it's taking, asks Philip Durkin, deputy chief editor of the Oxford English Dictionary. English speakers may not be famous for being au fait with foreign languages, but all of us use words taken from other languages every day. In that last sentence au fait is an obvious example, but famous, foreign, languages, use, and taken are also borrowed words. Knowledge of what is being borrowed, and from where, provides an invaluable insight into the international relations of the English language. Today English borrows words from other languages with a truly global reach. Some examples that the Oxford English Dictionary suggests entered English during the past 30 years include tarka dal, a creamy Indian lentil dish (1984, from Hindi), quinzhee, a type of snow shelter (1984, from Slave or another language of the Pacific Coast of North America), popiah, a type of Singaporean or Malaysian spring roll (1986, from Malay), izakaya, a typ ...

Fact 1 The world's tallest-growing tree is the coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens), which grows along the Pacific Coast of the United States, mainly in California. Interestingly enough, it's not the world's oldest-growing tree; that award goes to a bristlecone pine (Pinus aristata). Fact 2 Bamboo is the fastest-growing woody plant in the world; it can grow 35 inches in a single day. Learn more about bamboo plants.

This is required reading in preparation for tonight's Spokane City Council meeting where the council will take up a resolution in regards to the oil train / oil shipping issue. Thanks Timothy Connor for this post. In case the caption doesn't come up, here is Tim's caption for this frightening photo: For some reason it doesn’t seem that long ago. The frightening rail accident in west Spokane that sent rail cars off the Latah Creek bridge onto the westbound lanes of Interstate-90, barely missing a Greyhound bus as it was heading up the hill.

Between Mountains and Sea: Blanton Museum exhibition highlights art of ancient Andes AUSTIN, TX.- The Blanton Museum of Art, in partnership with the Department of Art and Art History at The University of Texas at Austin, presents a special selection of objects that illuminate the lifestyle, technological achievements, and ideology of pre-Inka cultures among the coastal Andes of South America. Between Mountains and Sea: Arts of the Ancient Andes features 80 extraordinary works drawn primarily from the University’s collections with loans from the Dallas Museum of Art, ranging from intricately woven textiles to painted ceramic vessels and modeled effigies. Through a dynamic presentation that integrates art historical and anthropological contexts, the exhibition traces the artistic development of the ancient Paracas, Nasca, Wari, Moche, Chancay, Sicán, and Chimú cultures from the Early Horizon (900–200 BCE) through the Late Horizon (1470–1532 CE) periods. The exhibition was conceived by the Blanton an ...

Drought got you down? Escape the dry anxiety with an 1895 article from the Los Angeles Herald that proclaimed "Ventura County is one of the best watered counties in Southern California." Surely the effort of local boosters, the Los Angeles Herald article branded Ventura the "Palm City of the Pacific Coast." An 1896 article in the San Francisco Call bragged "the water is pure and sweet and in quantity sufficient to supply a city of 75,000 inhabitants." (Ventura's population was around 107,000 according 2012 census data.) The Ventura River is noted as "a beautiful and rapid-flowing stream, noted as one of the best trout streams on the coast," though not to be outdone by the Santa Clara River, the source for the area's 150-foot deep top soil. So if you get frustrated while replacing your lawn with native scrub, or curse the water pressure in a low-flow shower, take comfort in assurances from 1896: "When Cabrillo dropped anchor in the harbor where Ventura now stands, he counted twenty-five (Chumash) villages ...
On paper, the pairing of LA synth-boogie wizard Dam-Funk and infamous Cali rapper and spliff-huffing, renaissance troublemaker Snoop Dogg seems both baffling and perfectly logical; listening to said collaboration as 7 Days of Funk, it's a wonder that this dynamic duo didn't get together sooner. Dam's bumping, squealing, shimmying keys and Snoop's permastoned vocals are a match made in G-Funk heaven, stripped of pretension and bouncing down the Pacific Coast Highway in a hydraulic Caddy, picking up Steve Arrington, Tha Dogg Pound, and all manner of P-Funk All-Stars along the way.

(NaturalNews) If you've heard about Fukushima radiation spreading to the Pacific Coast of North America but were "corrected" by sources both official and expert that this was based more on rumor than reality, then consider the information presented at the October 2013 North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES) annual meeting. Researchers from Fisheries and Oceans Canada confirmed that the radioactive plume from Fukushima is indeed reaching the shores of Canada and the United States - and was detected at least six months ago - carried both in the ocean surface water and the atmosphere on similar but slightly different courses. In a presentation titled "Communicating the forecasts, uncertainty and consequences of ecosystem change," (read here: the Canadian researchers gave evidence that the bulk of radioactivity from Fukushima is shifting almost entirely from the western portion of the North Pacific (Japan) to the eastern portion (North America) over the course of the next five years. As of 2012, it ...

"The coal and other natural resources of Alaska should be opened to development at once. They are owned by the people of the United States, and are safe from monopoly, waste or destruction only while so owned. Thus the benefit of cheap fuel will accrue to the government of the United States and to the people of Alaska and the Pacific Coast; the settlement of extensive agricultural lands will be hastened; the extermination of the salmon will be prevented, and the just and wise development of Alaskan resources will take the place of private extortion or monopoly."

Canucks/Kings Writeup The monday night Pacific Coast battle between the Vancouver Canucks and the Los Angeles Kings will showcase a relatively new and growing rivalry within the division. This will be the third meeting between the two clubs this season. Ever since the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, where the two met in the first round, both teams have appeared to take each other very seriously. There is usually a sense of elevated emotions that set a significant stage for a playoff-like type of vibe. First and foremost I will state the obvious, in which more or less the foundation of this entire write up will be simply based upon. These two teams are about as defensive as they come. Both of them are hovering ataround a 1:2 ratio in terms of overs to unders, respectively. At this point of the season, it is clear that the lopsided tendencies are not a result of mere coincidence, but in fact a reflection of strictly enforced playing styles. Both Head Coaches John Tortorella and Darryl Sutter have proven several ...

Meet the 2014 Holstein judge Mark Rueth from Oxford, Wisconsin Mark grew up on a 35-cow grade dairy farm in Jefferson County, Wisconsin. He started his dairy career showing in the grade classes at the county fair and soon advanced his interest with the purchase of a registered calf. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, Rueth began working with some of the leading dairy herds in Wisconsin and the Pacific Northwest. While on the Pacific Coast, he purchased Westlynn Tom Dee with a group of partners. That cow went on to become a four-time World Dairy Expo Grand Champion and also earned Reserve Supreme Champion honours at the show. Tom Dee was just the first of four cows to win Supreme or Reserve Supreme Champion honours for Rueth. Stookey-Elm Park Blackrose (EX-96), a two-time All-American cow, was one of the next cows Mark Rueth developed. Over 50 percent of the present milking herd descends from her.

3 more WSU Virtual Motor City (Detroit News) photos of the Detroit Cougars. Written History on the official site of the Detroit Red Wings: "The roots of the Red Wings go all the way back to the old Western Hockey League, where the Victoria (British Columbia) Cougars were members until their roster was sold to a group from Detroit on September 25, 1926. The Detroit group had been awarded an NHL franchise on May 15, 1926. The team began to play as the Detroit Cougars in the fall of 1926 while playing its home games in Windsor, Ontario. Despite the fact that the Victoria Cougars had won the Stanley Cup in 1925 and were Cup finalists in 1926, the Detroit Cougars finished 12-28-4; the NHL's worst record for the 1926-27 season. Not only did the team struggle on the ice, but it performed poorly on the ledger sheet as well where the Cougars were more than $80,000 in debt. Help came, the following season, in the form of Jack Adams as the team's coach and general manager. Adams had played in the old Pacific Coast l ...

The first boat is already under construction in the line's Maryland shipyard, as is a new paddlewheeler, scheduled to launch spring 2015. Both will carry between 150 and 200 passengers, according to the line. The line will begin construction on a second paddlewheeler later this year or next. The boat currently under construction will operate solely along the Columbia and Snake rivers from the Pacific Coast to the Idaho border. Decor will be Pacific Northwest in style with historic accents and artwork that highlights the Lewis and Clark expedition and the Native American tribes who helped them. Every cabin will have private balconies and panoramic views. The boat will be the first new river boat on the Columbia and Snake Rivers in 10 years. MICDAN.COM CRUISEPL

addition, radioactive debris is starting to wash up on the Pacific Coast. And because the Japanese are burning radioactive materials instead of disposing of them, radioactive rain-outs will continue for some time … even on the Pacific Coast. Of course, the government is doing everything it can to help citizens cover up what’s occurring. We pointed out in January: Instead of doing much to try to protect their citizens from Fukushima, Japan, the U.S. and the EU all just raised the radiation levels they deem “safe”. Nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen says that high-level friends in the State Department told him that Hillary Clinton signed a pact with her counterpart in Japan agreeing that the U.S. will continue buying seafood from Japan, despite that food not being tested for radioactive materials [see this]. And the Department of Energy is trying to replace the scientifically accepted model of the dangers of low dose radiation based on voodoo science. Specifically, DOE’s Lawrence Berkeley Labs use ...

On my mind today . How wonderful and amazing friends can be . like us all ( no matter how well we are doing ) there are times that we can be hit by the BLUES, I was feeling blue when I went to visit a dear friend of mine Philip. " Hi Dave" says he "I have something for you that I think you will appreciate . thus saying he handed me a box that contained 70 CDs. containing Chet Baker (15 cds ) Sarah Vaughn, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett,Cassandra Wilson, Lou Rawls,Dinah Washington, Joe Williams , Ray Charles,Diana Krall,Sergio Mendez, Shirley Horn,MIles Davis,Carlos Jobim, Chris Bottie, Frank Sinatra and many more . artists that I I have loved for years . but strange as it may seem all the CDs that he gave me I were CDs that I had never owned . bye bye blues and hello head-phones . If you ever get down to CR and crave the beach, i would suggest that you stay with Philip at the beautiful and totally amazing " Club del Mar " on the Pacific Coast .

I HAVE A RANT !!! Many of you may be familiar with the recording artist Sarah McLachlan (and she's more than that woman on the animal abuse commerical, so suck your own on that one.) Well.in 1997 Sarah released her album "Surfacing" which included a song entitled "Angel".and here begins the rant. I first heard this song played publicly, via television broadcast, during a memorial ceremony for those lost in the crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 on January 31, 2000 of the Pacific Coast. I was living in Los Angeles at the time. I soon realized that no one could have possibly been familiar with the songs inspiration or another song might have been chosen. Since then the song "Angel" has been used repeatedly to memorialize any mournful teardrop that's found it's way down some "cray" teenagers angst ridden cheekbone just to fall down and wet a page from their hatred filled Justin Bieber covered diary while being held tight against their chest during the 250th installment of "Oh, my life *** somebody call L .. ...

Monday, September 23, 2013, the 266th day of the year. On This Date in History: 1779: John Paul Jones, the Father of the American Navy wins his famous sea battle off the East Coast of England aboard his ship, the "Bonhomme Richard" named for Ben Franklin's "Poor Richard's Almanac" against the British ships "Serapis" and "Scarborough". When asked to surrender his sinking ship, Jones gave the famous remark "I have not yet began to fight" in response to the Serapis's Captain whose ship he boarded and took three hours later as his ship sank. The Scot had killed a man during a mutiny in the British Navy and fled to the Colonies. Lucky for us. 1806: Lewis and Clark and their Expedition returned to St. Louis completing their mission from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Coast and back in a little over two years. Everyone assumed they were all dead. 1846: The 8th Planet, Neptune, is discovered. 1862: "War and Peace" author Leo Tolstoy, 34, marries an 18 year old girl. The marriage last for 48 years u ...
Weather Outlook for Sunday Sun, 22 Sep 2013 08:30:00 EDT A wave of low pressure on a stalled cold front over the northern Gulf will help to focus moisture near this front and result in numerous showers and storms from southern Louisiana to the Florida peninsula. Farther to the north from the Carolinas to New England, the cold front is forecast to progress well offshore and allow for the arrival of a fresh and high quality airmass for Sunday and into the beginning of the work week. A broad upper level trough over the Western U.S. is forecast to intensify while moving through the Four Corners region, aiding in widespread precipitation over the Central Rockies by Sunday afternoon. There may even be some snow for the highest elevations above treeline in the Central Rockies. Onshore flow over the northern Pacific Coast is expected to continue aiding in orographically driven rainfall for the Pacific Northwest.

Took 3rd place in my nameless age group in the Pacific Coast Tri this weekend. First race since starting to run again 3 wks. ago took its toll on my endurance, as well as the heat, cold water, 1/2 mile ocean swim that was almost a mile of choppy water, and my half healed knee...lets see any more excuses?.Oh yeah, I coached the kids while I biked the course, hoping not to have them pass me and really be embarrassed:)
So, first weekend back from Burning Man, a little random act of violence. Someone apparently felt compelled to slash my car tire in the parking lot of Grocery Outlet in San Leandro for no reason. My tire guy confirms that it was a deliberate act of vandalism. Still, in the afterglow of the Burn, and an amazing weekend along the Pacific coast with my lovely family, I refuse to let it bring me down and choose instead to double down on random acts of kindness to offset the bad vibes. Take that vandals!!

A Portrait of Random Hacker General Appearance Intelligent. Scruffy. Intense. Abstracted. Surprisingly for a sedentary profession, more hackers run to skinny than fat; both extremes are more common than elsewhere. Tans are rare. Dress Casual, vaguely post-hippie; T-shirts, jeans, running shoes, Birk-enstocks (or bare feet). Long hair, beards, and moustaches are common. Hackers dress for comfort, function, and minimal maintenance hassles rather than for appearance.They have a very low tolerance of suits and other ‘business’ attire; in fact, it is not uncommon for hackers to quit a job rather than conform to a dress code. Female hackers almost never wear visible makeup, and many use none at all. Some hobbies are widely shared and recognized as going with the culture: science fiction, music, religion, chess, magic, backgammon, wargames, and intellectual games of all kinds. Education Nearly all hackers past their teens are either college-degreed or self-educated to an equivalent level. The self-taught hac ...

Cowlicks Hand Made Ice Cream, Fort Bragg, California judged one of America's Top 10 Ice Cream Shops! "Located along the Pacific Coast, this family owned shop serves up “absurdly good” ice cream and sources its dairy from local Petaluma cows.

All the ice cream is made from quality ingredients." ”
Dear fellow Contemporary Pilgrims, I'm embarking on a two-week tour of the Southwest & Pacific Coast. What off-the-beaten-path, authentic things must I see along the way?

Have a grandma who makes a mean cobbler or know a local watering hole I can't miss? Please share. These stories will be the second batch of tales published once the site is officially launched next week! Cheers, Ashley
Happy Fourth Of July Wherever You Come From JULY 2, 2013 Los Angeles — In the days following the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, the Federal Bureau of Investigation began arresting, without charges, Japanese immigrants in California, Oregon, Washington and Hawaii who were on government lists as possible threats to national security. They also picked up Germans and Italians, whose home countries declared war on the United States after the Japanese attack. The Japanese incarcerated were Issei, first-generation immigrants who could not become naturalized citizens after Congress passed the Immigration Act of 1924. The lists were not particularly sophisticated. The men and women taken away were teachers, clergymen, successful owners of small businesses, journalists and most anyone else considered a community leader. It was a hysterical time; there was real fear and fear-mongering about a Japanese invasion of the Pacific Coast. American politicians and journalists were among those demanding ...
I traveled to SAN LUIS - by travelling throughout SOUTH Pacific Ocean - (SAN LUIS OBISPO,CA 93401).On the way I could see the Elephant Seal on the Pacific Sea Ocean and sharing the photos :- ABOUT ELEPHANT SEAS (Thanks to Wikipedia) Elephant seals (also sea elephants) are large, oceangoing seals in the genus Mirounga. The two species, the northern elephant seal (M. angustirostris) and the southern elephant seal (M. leonina), both were hunted to the brink of extinction by the end of the 19th century, but numbers have since recovered. The northern elephant seal, somewhat smaller than its southern relative, ranges over the Pacific coast of the U.S., Canada andMexico. The most northerly breeding location on the Pacific Coast is at Race Rocks, at the southern tip of Vancouver Island in theStrait of Juan de Fuca. The southern elephant seal is found in the Southern Hemisphere on islands such as South Georgia andMacquarie Island, and on the coasts of New Zealand, South Africa, and Argentina in the Peninsula Val . ...

UPDATE 3-Canada charges two in alleged plot to bomb Canada Day party SURREY, British Columbia, July 2 (Reuters) - Canadian police said on Tuesday they arrested a Canadian man and woman in what they described as a plot inspired by al Qaeda ideology to detonate pressure-cooker bombs filled with nuts, bolts and rusty nails at a Canada Day party in British Columbia. Police charged the suspects with plotting to set off the three home-made devices outside the parliament building in Victoria, the capital of the Pacific Coast province, during Canada Day festivities on Monday. Police said the two suspects "were inspired by al Qaeda ideology." But there was no evidence to suggest a foreign link to their planned attack. The suspects were identified as John Stuart Nuttall and Amanda Korody, Canadian-born citizens from Surrey, British Columbia, about 30 km (19 miles) southwest of Vancouver. They were arrested on Monday in Abbotsford, near the U.S. border. Officials said they had monitored the pair since February and t ...
June 28th: Spent yesterday driving through Idaho, stopped over at Bruneau Dunes State Park where Santana climbed the highest contiguous sand dune in North America (too hot for me!) and then continued on to Oregon, where we found the Crystal Crane Hot Springs in the eastern Oregon desert. We peeled off our sweaty clothes and dunked into the hot springs as nightfall approached, and watched as the big desert sky gave way to a silent show of stars and milky way gases lighting up the sky. We contemplated the black holes we could not see, tried to identify constellations, and watched the silhouettes of bats and they dipped down to the spring water to catch the insects on the surface of the water. The smell of sage brush is thick here and coyotes, off in the distance, treated us to a late night serenade. We are all grateful for the down time. Tomorrow: the Pacific Coast of Oregon and then south down Highway 101.

I've always been fascinated by maps, including demographic ones. This map shows how well-educated much of the Northeast, Lower Great Lakes, Mountain West, and Pacific Coast regions are in general--and how astonishingly deficient much of Lower Appalachia, the Mississippi Delta, and Rio Grande Valley are in terms of education. The South in general still has many strides to make in this realm!
A recent study claims the Pacific Coast, mainly British Columbia, is due to experience a high magnitude, megathrust earthquake.
Mega-Earthquake Forecasted To Hit British Columbia, Pacific Coast For First Time in 11,000 Years A historically large earthquake is scheduled to hit the Pacific Coast, according to a new study released this week. British Columbia is reportedly the area most at risk for what researchers are calling a “mega-earthquake,” also known as megathrust earthquake, a tremor that hasn’t hit the region in more than 11,000 years. According to a study published Wednesday by the School of Environment and Sustainability at Royal Roads University in Victoria B.C., sea floor sediment samples removed off the coast of Vancouver Island confirmed claims that British Columbia is anticipated to experience a high-magnitude quake anytime within the next 700 years. The report, published by CBC News, stated findings that the last 9.0 magnitude mega-earthquake in the region occurred in 1700. The author behind the study, University Assistant Professor Audrey Dallimore, said the last mega-earthquake occurred 313 years ago, calling ...

Anybody can do it I decided to do this tour because it was affordable, well documented, and very scenic. My wife and I like to take touring vacations every year. A couple of years ago I purchased the pacific coast map set from Adventure Cycling for a future day when money could be an issue. The time had come to de-dust the maps. For this trip I also purchased the "Bicycling the Pacific Coast" book (Kirkendal & Spring) I rode an average of 75 miles/day. I was riding alone and with a light load. The riding was interesting in Oregon and California, Washington did not provide much for my senses. . . . . The route I took in Oregon followed the Oregon Bicycle Coast Route. Oregon prints an excellent map which you can request online it is free and will take the guess out of planning your day. This map has suggested alternate routes to avoid busy stretches of highway, the locations of the camping parks with keys for services offered (biker-hiker sites, hot showers etc) graphic elevation of hills ahead and it fits ...
* ~THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE~ As an American Veteran, I have been hearing this a lot lately. I'm not sure exactly what to say in response or how to feel. From police officers to healthcare workers, to people on the street. To be honest, I joined the United States Navy because I couldn't afford college anymore. I figured I'd do my time, get out and use my GI Bill. I had an uncle and three cousins who joined the Navy, so it was also a family tradition of some sort. But many things happened while I was in. The shuttle Challenger crash. Operation Just Cause. Desert Shield. Desert Storm. UNITAF. The Soviet submarine that surfaced off the Pacific Coast too close to San Diego for everyone's comfort. (It was the basis of which Tom Clancy's Hunt for Red October was written). Law Enforcement Operations on both sides of the Panama Canal doing Drug Interdiction missions, and many others various missions. My timeline may be a little off, so many details, so much information, so much time has passed it has all become ...
Holy Fukushima Samples of milk taken across the United States have shown radiation at levels 2000 percent higher than EPA maximums. The reason that milk is so significant is that it is representative of the entire food supply. According to an article published on Natural News, “Cows consume grass and are exposed to the same elements as food crops and water supplies. In other words, when cows’ milk starts testing positive for high levels of radioactive elements, this is indicative of radioactive contamination of the entire food supply.” The Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Deception Protection Agency, instead of refusing to prohibit the sale of tainted foods and mandatory testing of foods produced and harvested from the Pacific Coast, have simply raised the “acceptable levels” of radioactive material in foods.
Today in History: June 7, 1866, Thirteen years after American settlers founded the city named for him, Chief Seattle dies in a nearby village of his people. Born sometime around 1790, Seattle (Seathl) was a chief of the Duwamish and Suquamish tribes who lived around the Pacific Coast bay that is today called Puget Sound. He was the son of a Suquamish father and a Duwamish mother, a lineage that allowed him to gain influence in both tribes. By the early 1850s, small bands of Euro-Americans had begun establishing villages along the banks of Puget Sound. Chief Seattle apparently welcomed his new neighbors and seems to have treated them with kindness. In 1853, several settlers moved to a site on Elliott Bay to establish a permanent town--since Chief Seattle had proved so friendly and welcoming, the settlers named their tiny new settlement in his honor. The Euro-American settlers picked the site because of the luxuriant forest on the bluff behind the new village. The Gold Rush in California had created a boomi ...
Understand just how much the ocean matters, not only to you and your family, but to all life on the planet. A healthy ocean is critical to the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink and the survival of the wildlife we love. • Protect the Arctic from threats like climate change and oil and gas drilling as well as help sustain the wildlife that calls this region home such as polar bears, whales and seals; • Support a healthy Pacific Coast from pressures like overfishing and pollution, while also supporting marine protected areas that enable ocean life to become more resilient; • Preserve access to healthy waters on the Atlantic Coast by advancing smart ocean planning and sustainable fishing practices; and • Restore the Gulf of Mexico so it can again be an economic driver that sustains a robust seafood industry, recreation and tourism.

HURRICANE SEASON HAS OFFICIALLY STARTED : Hurricanes Hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico seen from space. A hurricane is a type of tropical cyclone or severe tropical storm that forms in the southern Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and in the eastern Pacific Ocean. A typical cyclone is accompanied by thunderstorms, and in the Northern Hemisphere, a counterclockwise circulation of winds near the earth’s surface. All Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coastal areas are subject to hurricanes. Parts of the Southwest United States and the Pacific Coast also experience heavy rains and floods each year from hurricanes spawned off Mexico. The Atlantic hurricane season lasts from June to November, with the peak season from mid-August to late October. The Eastern Pacific hurricane season begins May 15 and ends November 30.

People assume cultural power in North America flows outwards from New York and LA. The still developing wave of secularisation shows the reverse trend. Leaping from post-War France to Quebec, the old Catholic Nation of Duplessis was ripped apart in a decade, before sweeping most of Anglo-Canada in a generation, and now spreading rapidly into the parts of the US where Canadian culture has real influence, like the Upper Northeast and Upper Midwest - places where people regularly border jump for cheaper healthcare, amongst other things. There is another wave of secularisation which originated in California, and the two currents meet in the United States' most secularised region, the Pacific Northwest. The United States of Canada's Pacific Coast, where cities like Seattle and Portland were already built immigrants who moved straight from turn of the Century Protestant Northern Europe, already secularised. Working-class boys from Barnsley or Kiel who had no real attachment to any Church and didn't carry what l ...

Just finished watching "1492, The Conquest of Paradise" on YouTube. Released in 1992, the producers had searched for a location of pristine tropical beauty, a completely untouched pre-Colombian coastal rainforest for their filming. They found it at the Bahia de Herradura, on Costa Rica's central Pacific Coast, and the film features repeated shot of lush nature that are breath taking, without question. Herradura today, a scant twenty years later, is fully developed, crowned by the huge Marriot Los Suenos resort and gated community, with golf course and marina. The shopping mall includes a Radio Shack and Burger King, along with a Ron Jon-style surf shop. "Conquest" indeed...
I want to remember Dotty (Dorothy) Fowler who died at her Berkeley home earlier this month. She worked in theater all over the country and here at SF ACT. She was a tech and stagehand. Mostly she was a sailor--sailed up and down the Pacific Coast and all over the Bay Area. She organized in the LGBT community, she gave her time to raise funds, to visit, to share her life with others. Finally, I honor her as a poet. When she was in her '70s she went back to school st SFSU and earned an MFA in Creative Writing. The subject of the poetry is of course the sea itself, the winds, the work of sailing, the knowledge of tides and exposure to hidden dangers (rocks, reefs and son on---all that is in the poetry.
After 75 consecutive days of staying focused and determined to complete my challenging bicycle ride from the VA coast to the WA coast, I can say with an exhilarated smile that I have achieved my goal! Forrest and I got a very filling breakfast before my last ride of the journey. We were told there were a sea lions that lived on the docks near the restaurant. We walked over there and the docks were covered by them making loud noises and playing with each other. It was my first time seeing sea lions! From the docks, I jumped up on Betty (the name of my bicycle) and began my final day on this ride by bicycling over a 4.2 mile long bridge that lead me into Washington. Seeing the sign in person that welcomed me to Washington gave me a feeling that is indescribable, I was extremely close to finishing this journey. I bicycled along the Pacific Coast and through a long dark tunnel with a big smile on my face. My final 5 miles of my ride consisted of many flashing memories throughout this epic, personal journey. I ...
Had a great walk along the San Diego Beach together with my mentor Pastor Jerry and his wife Lois who are Ministers at First Presbyterian Church of San Diego this morning. Very grateful to God for this couple that I first met in 1993 during my Wheaton College days and under whom I served as a Missionary at First Presbyterian Church of Glen Ellyn. We then went and visited their son who is recovering in UCSD Hospital and had great fellowship with Grandma Arlene's son Scott and his wife. Very thankful to God for the way they supported the founding of Juna Amagara Ministries and have continued to be valuable supporters. Will soon be catching the Safina to head North to Costa Mesa travelling along the scenic Pacific Coast. The big Ocean waves that break and reverse back into the body of the Pacific Ocean remind me that they obey God's command as found in Job 38:1-11. Our God, the maker of Heaven and Earth and all the Universe is mighty and worthy to be praised. Rev. Dr. Ben.
One thing I am really looking forward to on my upcoming tour is shooting video of the Pacific Coast. When I left on my last tour, I had never edited a video before. It's not just editing, it's learning how to shoot a video with the intention of editing. This shoot to edit method really improved my videos. There was so much on the coast to show, and I just didn't have the experience to know what I was doing. Also, I never imagined the videos would become popular. I would like to spend a week in San Francisco and visit many of the attractions. I might stay with a warmshowers host, but most likely I will stay at several of the hostels in town for no other reason than to review them for bicycle tourers who might also like to stay in the city. From San Francisco, I'll head east to Yosemite NP and then to Joshua Tree, spending winter in southern CA, AZ and NM, visiting as many National Parks, and other interesting locations as possible, then heading north. I don't have any schedule or timetable. I'll be ...
The Militarization of Mexico Struggling to contain rapidly growing self-defense militias that threaten armed clashes with powerful criminal gangs, Mexico's federal government has brokered the hiring of an army special forces commander as public security czar in the central state of Michoacan. Thursday's appointment of Brigadier General Alberto Reyes appears to mock President Enrique Peña Nieto's intent to soften the military-led anti-crime campaign begun by his predecessor, Felipe Calderon. The governor of violent Guerrero, which neighbors Michoacan on Mexico's Pacific Coast and faces its own militia and gangster threats, this week named a navy admiral to head that state's security forces. "We will seek to work in a coordinated way with the municipalities with the most problems at this moment," Interior Minister Miguel Angel Osorio told a television interviewer, adding that the appointed general would have control over local, state and federal forces in Michoacan. "I am convinced that in a short time con ...
Thanking the Lord for a weekend on the beautiful Pacific Coast. Alex and I were so refreshed by God's creation, the power of the sea, the glorious sunsets, the clean ocean breezes, and delicious seafoods. We were also uplifted by the words of a special man helping Celebrate the Life of a friend named Don. It was a weekend of rest, adventure, and renewal. Always good to be back home with Family.
Founding of Ocean Park   The material is copyrighted © 1998 by Jeffrey Stanton. Revised April 6, 1998   After Abbot Kinney built his summer home in Santa Monica in 1886, he became interested in land development along the Pacific Coast. Although the real estate market crash of 1888 derailed his plans to develop the area which is now Pacific Palisades, he shifted his attention to the coastal area south of Santa Monica in 1891. Kinney and his partner Francis Ryan acquired a controlling interest in the Ocean Park Casino (actually a restaurant and tennis club) on June 23, 1891. Several months later they decided to purchase the surrounding tract of land for $175,000 from Captain Hutchinson, a British Army officer. The man had acquired the beach front property in the late 1870's when he foreclosed on a series of loans made to the Machado family on parts of their La Ballona Rancho. The plot of land which extended 1-1/2 miles south of what is now Pico Boulevard in Santa Monica to Mildred Avenue in ...
True story - I was on this rutty road crossing the desert from a nowhere town in Baja Mexico to Guerra *** on the Pacific Coast, hitchhiking on a gas truck with a goat-like Mexican driver in a stretch of land not many *** has ever been to. I was lucky to get a ride after hanging out in the tin shacks village where time seems to stand still with a tamales lady, a burritos man, and a migrant worker. It got pitch-black after several hours along the lonesome, almost alien landscape of nothing but strewn rocks, boulders, and the hardiest cactuses. I was getting used to the bouncing, rickety ride with only dusts swirling a few feet ahead in the head lights when I was almost thrown through the windshield when the driver slammed *** the brake. He sat there without saying anything but I could tell by his blanched face that he's in shock with some dreadful fear unknown to me He walked out and looked down at the wheel and I followed. I didn't know that we were on a narrow mountain pass until I heard the r ...

Some of you may have heard me complain about AT&T. It seems I am often quick to complain about what I deem "bad" service, but realize I am not quite as quick to brag on "good" service. Well, I had a catastrophe tonight as I tried (online...probably my first mistake) to change the phone number of a person on my cell phone account. I was quite sure I had followed the correct steps to make sure it was done properly. However, I was mortified to learn that I had changed my own number and not the other person's. I couldn't log into my AT&T account, I couldn't access my voice mail, when I called my number the recording stated that this number had been disconnected! I was in a real panic thinking of all the people I would need to contact with my "new, unwanted number." I couldn't talk to a "real" person because of the hour! So, I began to "chat" with a representative. Long story short -- between that rep and the rep she connected me to on the Pacific Coast -- I got my number back and the other num ...

Understanding two bridges can be hard. Comparing them even more so. But to compare, you must know the chief engineers. 220 miles apart, one in a exurb of Minneapolis and the other in the largest suburb of Cedar Rapids, these two bridges would be very unlikely to match. Both bridges lie on former double track Milwaukee Road Mainlines, the one in Minnesota now on the Twin Cities & Western, and the other on an abandoned line. Both lines served as important mainlines from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Coast in the high of the rail boom. Iowa photographs of these two bridges. Clearly, the same design. The one over Indian Creek in Marion is much better kept, with the second track and original concrete deck still intact. Handrails are still intact. The bridge has a bright future as an important link in the Iowa Trail System, where it will eventually tie into the Hoover Trail built on an ex Rock Island Line from Cedar Rapids to Burlington. The one over Carver Creek has been long forgotten. The second trac ...
Einstein was enamored with the photon just prior to his death and a leaf is essentially a fuel cell (i.e., 'the Einsteinian craze'). So, the lion and leaf pic can be said to depict a 'British' mining company of a bluish mineral deposit (borax before dehydration) that was formed from minerals brought up 'from deep in the earth' by a volcano and then encased in basalt rock by further action of same, thus forming borax 'between a rock and a hard place' (just as the lion was, i.e., in a mold..as best I can tell), which is then mined (such as the leaf in the pic had been (see leaf mining)). And, as previously noted, the leaf also represents a fuel cell. In addition, we know the mine is located in CA ('a state bordered by three states' 'on the Pacific Coast') and west of 'Fire Point' ('when you hear those words' (plural)) the observation site on the north rim of the 'Grand Canyon,' as indicated by the clues 'rocks falling the the GC' and the painting, by a 'British' artist, Fire Point Looking West.

At least eight people died after attackers hurled gasoline bombs into a crowded Cancun bar early Tuesday.

AN UNTITLED STORY Read on Air by Phil Foley, Host of Tabernacle Presbyterian Church's Good News From Tab Program on 12/6/00 After a few of the usual Sunday evening hymns, the church's pastor slowly stood up, walked over to the pulpit and, before he gave his sermon for the evening, briefly introduced a guest minister who was in the service that evening. In the introduction, the pastor told the congregation that the guest minister was one of his dearest childhood friends and that he wanted him to have a few moments to greet the church and share whatever he felt would be appropriate for the service. With that, an elderly man stepped up to the pulpit and began to speak. "A father, his son, and a friend of his son were sailing off the Pacific Coast," he began, "when a fast approaching storm blocked any attempt to get back to shore. The waves were so high that, even though the father was an experienced sailor, he could not keep the boat upright, and the three were swept into the ocean as the boat capsized." The ...

The real choice facing America in the 21st century is the same one we faced in the past. It took wars to settle-but now the enemy has regrouped & we are losing the battle again. One economic strategy is about free markets, innovation, unions, government & business investments in R&D, infrastructure & education. The building of a modern, high-tech, high-wage economy was prevalent in New England, the Mid-Atlantic, the Midwest & Pacific Coast. The age-old economic development strategy of the Southern & Appalachian states is not to compete on the basis of innovation or living standards. Instead policymakers sought a role as a supplier of commodities like coal, cotton, tobacco, oil & gas-produced by cheap labor. It's intended to enrich the oligarchy. It doesn’t reward workers-or permit their children to grow out of poverty & isn't intended to. The “original sin” of the South is not slavery, or even racism. It is cheap, powerless labor. Unions that have bargaining power are anathema to today’s successo ...
Your Weather Factoid for Today in the year 1990: The biggest winter storm of the 1989-90 season hit the Pacific Coast region. Snow fell along the coast of Northern California and 2 day snow totals in the Sierra Nevada Mountains ranged up to 67 inches at Echo Summit.

On this Day in Weather History...17 Feb In 1958, a huge winter storm walloped the Northeast and Eastern parts of the country. Interior New England was overwhelmed by around 2.5 feet of snow. Logan Airport in Boston was buried by around 20 inches in 24 hours. Later, the Mid Atlantic Coast Region was buried by as much as 3 feet of snow, resulting in 43 deaths and around $500 million damage. Around 15 inches buried the Baltimore Washington Metro Area. In 1990, the biggest winter storm of the season slammed into the Pacific Coast. Snow occurred along the Northern California Coast.

I often get news from as many low-biased sources as I can. The insular effect of watching networks like Fox or MSNBC or getting your news from politically slanted websites is detrimental in three ways. 1) They only cover the "facts" that support their point of view or debase "the other side's" views, 2) it makes you lazy in seeking the truth which is our due diligence as citizens. 3) without differing points being conveyed and processed, greater ideals become even harder to forge...All that to say we are lesser people when we only surround ourselves with what we want to hear and people that agree with us.
