America Awakens

On the day after the inauguration of President Trump America – and the world! – awakened. There were no celebrations honoring President Trump. Millions of people have taken to the streets across America to speak up for women rights, human rights, civil rights, immigrant rights, Black Lives Matter, LGBT and transgender rights and many other rights threatened by the new President’s agenda.

The turnout was unbelievable. The Women’s March at the Washington Mall which planned on 200,000 participants attracted more than 500,000. Many planned marches became in-place demonstrations because the massive turnout left no place to march. Over 600 mass protests against President Trump’s values and anticipated policies took place throughout the world today.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said: “We must come to see that the end we seek is a society at peace with itself, a society that can live with its conscience.” Let us NOT forget it: stay awake America! Read more

Actor Miguel Ferrer Has Died

Miguel Ferrer, the popular TV and big screen actor, has died at 61 of throat cancer. Ferrer was a son of Oscar-winning actor and musician José Ferrer and the legendary singer, Rosemary Clooney. (He was a cousin of George Clooney.) Ferrer’s multi-faceted talent and distinctive voice enabled him to portray villains as well as heroes to critical acclaim.

Ferrer’s most notable roles include: FBI Agent Albert Rosenfeld on Twin Peaks (he will appear in David Lynch’s revival of the series on Showtime which premieres May 21), Dr. Garret Macy on NBC’s Crossing Jordan, Robert Morton in the original RoboCop and Owen Granger on NCIS: Los Angeles, a role he played since 2012 until recently. (The abbreviated list of Miguel Ferrer’s best known roles doesn’t do him justice. He was a prolific and sought after character actor, who appeared in over 40 movies and just as many popular television series from Magnum P.I., Cagney and Lacey, Star Trek, Hill Street Blues, Trapper John M.D., Miami Vice and Will & Grace to Law & Order: Criminal Intent.)

Healthy Meals At Home WITHOUT The Work

Healthy Meals At Home WITHOUT The Work

We all want – leave alone, need! – to eat healthier. If you are well, eating healthy is good for your health, your mood and your weight. If your health is less than perfect already or if you suffer from food sensitivities or food allergies, eating healthy is mandatory. Rationally, we all know that. But we are busy. We are tired. We are in a hurry. There is often no time for preparing a healthy meal. As a result we grab “something” on the go, when hunger strikes we’ll eat whatever is available. No wonder so many of us don't feel[...]
Hybrid Bikes Another Mode Of Green Transportation

Hybrid Bikes Another Mode Of Green Transportation

In climate change-sensitive California, hybrid cars took off like wildfire. They use less gas, produce fewer emissions, are better for the environment and driving them costs less. In the same spirit of environmental awareness, bicycles have become trendy in the last few years. Bicycle shops have sprung citywide. There are special bike lines and routes, even bicyclists’ clubs. Of course, there is also Ciclovía, an organization and a day-long event - that closes streets to cars while opening them to foot traffic, skateboarding and yes, biking - taking place several times a year. With the recent emphasis on biking, which today represents[...]
Solar Energy System On The Cheap

Solar Energy System On The Cheap

In spite of optimistic news reports, the economy is still tough on many of us. I don’t know about you, but quite a few of my homeowner friends dread the arrival of their utility bills. With the high cost of water in California, the electric section of the bill adds insult to injury. (To say nothing about the exorbitant bills for air conditioning in summer months when one can’t survive without AC.) Everybody wants to have solar today: it’s better for the environment and the pocketbook. But getting solar panels and having them installed costs a lot of money which many[...]
