California against the sea

In EYEONCITRUS.COM on kp20 at 311909

By Rosanna Xia

The California coast grew and prospered during a remarkable moment in history when the sea was at its tamest.

A California Beach not very enticing??

But the mighty Pacific, unbeknownst to all, was nearing its final years of a calm but unusual cycle that had lulled dreaming settlers into a false sense of endless summer.

Elsewhere, Miami has been drowning, Louisiana shrinking, North Carolina’s beaches disappearing like a time lapse with no ending. While other regions grappled with destructive waves and rising seas, the West Coast for decades was spared by a rare confluence of favorable winds and cooler water. This “sea level rise suppression,” as scientists call it, went largely undetected. Blinded from the consequences of a warming planet, Californians kept building right to the water’s edge.

But lines in the sand are meant to shift. In the last 100 years, the sea rose less than 9 inches in California. By the end of this century, the surge could be greater than 9 feet.

Wildfire and drought dominate the climate change debates in the state. Yet this less-talked-about reality has California cornered. The coastline is eroding with every tide and storm, but everything built before we knew better — Pacific Coast Highway, multimillion-dollar homes in Malibu, the rail line to San Diego — is fixed in place with nowhere to go.

But the world is getting hotter, the great ice sheets still melting, the rising ocean a slow-moving disaster that has already swept past California’s front door. Seaside cliffs are crumbling in Pacifica, bringing down entire buildings. Balboa Island, barely above sea level, is spending $1.8 million to raise the wall that separates it from the ocean.

Winter storms pummeled a Capistrano Beach boardwalk, turning the idyllic shoreline into a construction zone as bulldozers rushed to stack boulders into a barricade. From San Diego to Humboldt counties, homeowners scramble to fend off increasing erosion and storm surges, pleading with officials for bigger seawalls that can hold back the even bigger ocean.

Allocation – All Democratic primary/caucus delegates are proportionally allocated. Republican primaries/caucuses are listed as Proportional (P), Winner-Take-All (WTA), or Winner-Take-Most (WTM).
Proportional – Delegates are awarded based on the percentage of the vote received by candidates, or some formulation of dividing up the delegates
Winner Take All – All delegates are given to the winner of the contest
Winner Take Most – Some delegates are reserved for the winner, some may be divided proportionally
Unbound – Delegates are not bound to a specific candidate and can support any candidate of their choosing, varies by state party

Type
Open– Voters may vote in either party primary but can choose only one
Closed – Only voters registered in their respective party may vote in the party primary
Mixed – A semi-open or semi-closed environment, unaffiliated voters can choose to vote in either primary or can switch registration the day of voting

*Note on Washington State: The Washington State GOP holds a caucus on February 20 but presidential primary delegates will be awarded based on the results of the Washington State primary on May 24. The Washington State Democratic Party does not allocate any delegates from the primary, but rather holds its own caucus on March 26. As a result, Democrats may vote in the primary on May 24 but the vote is considered a “beauty contest” as it holds no bearing on delegates.

‘Giant’ surrendered, senior German shepherd has won over shelter volunteers

In Calif. Handsome Jack needs home, EYEONCITRUS.COM on kp58 at 311430


On July 16, a handsome senior named “Jack,” lost his home and family after his owner surrendered him to the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Lancaster, Calif. Please pass this story forward.

The nine-year-old German shepherd mix has endeared himself to the volunteers at the facility during the time that he has been in their care. The following information is written on Jack’s Shelter Me biography:

Sweet Mr. Jack is just as mellow as can be and he has already won over most of the staff and volunteers at the shelter. He has an incredible personality that you just have to love. He was hanging out with the shelter veterinarian sharing lunch with the doctor and just chilling out like the cool guy he is. Jack is a big giant sweetheart and would love a home to kick back and relax in his golden years.

The busy, high-intake animal control facility is not a safe place for Jack to be…at the time that this article was written, nearly 300 dogs were in the care of the Lancaster Animal Services facility. Unfortunately, dogs are put down when space constraints become an issue.

Please take a moment to network on the behalf of this wonderful senior…he did not ask to be put in the situation that he has been placed in.

  • Los Angeles County Animal Control – Lancaster at (661) 940-4191

More Things Change the more they Stay the Same

Mid-May marks two key anniversaries in the conflict between the United States and Mexico that set in motion the Civil War—and led to California, Texas, and eight other states joining the Union.

View photo

On May 13, 1846, the United States Congress declared war on Mexico after a request from President James K. Polk. Then, on May 26, 1848, both sides ratified the peace treaty that ended the conflict.

In between those dates was enough drama to last for generations and the appearance of some familiar names that would dominate the Civil War, from President Abraham Lincoln to General Robert E. Lee.

To save space and make a long story short, the conflict centered on the independent Republic of Texas, which opted to join the United States after establishing its independence from Mexico a decade earlier.

The new U.S. president, James K. Polk, also wanted Texas as part of the United States, and his predecessor, John Tyler, had a late change of heart and started the admission process before he left office. Polk and others saw the acquisition of Texas, California, Oregon, and other territories as part of the nation’s Manifest Destiny to spread democracy over the continent.

The U.S. also tried to buy Texas and what was called “Mexican California” from Mexico, which was seen as an insult in Mexico, before war broke out.

Mexico considered the annexation of Texas as an act of war, and after border skirmishes, President Polk asked for the war declaration, since in Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, only Congress can declare a war.

In the fighting that followed, the mostly volunteer United States military secured control of Mexico after a series of battles, and the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed on February 2, 1848.

It was the first large-scale success of a United States military force on foreign soil.

Mexico received a little more than $18 million in compensation from the United States as part of the treaty.

The pact set a border between Texas and Mexico, and ceded California, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, most of Arizona and Colorado, and parts of Oklahoma, Kansas, and Wyoming to the United States.

In today’s terms, those 10 states account for 136 electoral votes, more than half of the votes needed to secure a win a presidential election.

It also cut the territorial size of Mexico in half.

On the surface, the war’s outcome seemed like a bonanza for the United States. But the acquisition of so much territory with the issue of slavery unresolved lit the fuse that set off the Civil War in 1861.

The underlying issue of how adding new states and territories would alter the balance between free and slave states was critical.

The Missouri Compromise of 1850 attempted to appease Southern concerns about the shifting balances, but the die was cast as the nation headed toward the Civil War in 1861.

The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo also set in motion a whole range of issues for Mexican-Americans and Native Americans.

During the conflict, one of the vocal objectors in the Whig party was Representative Abraham Lincoln from Illinois. Key players on the political side included Jefferson Davis and Stephen Douglas.

On the battlefield, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, and Stonewall Jackson were among the dozens of commanders who would later emerge in the Civil War.

Anti-Wall Street Protests Grow in New York as Other Cities Join

In EYE ON CITRUS, EYEONCITRUS.COM, NATION, OCCUPY WALL STREET MOVEMENT GROWS on kp56 at 311106

By Esmé E. Deprez and Alison Vekshin – Oct 6, 2011 10:26 AM ET REST OF STORY HERE

The Wall Street Investors mock the protesters by Drinking Champagne! “Off with their heads.” Roseanne Barr.

Demonstrators from New York City to San Francisco took to the streets to protest what they call a growing wealth disparity between large U.S. corporations and average citizens in the wake of the financial crisis.

Picketers marched yesterday as part of the Occupy Wall Streetmovement that began three weeks ago in Lower Manhattan and has spread across the U.S. The New York crowd was estimated at 10,000, according to Patrick Bruner, a spokesman for the effort.

Anti-Wall Street Protests Spread From New York

“There’s power in numbers, and we outnumber the people we’re trying to hold accountable,” said Henry Liedtka, a 27- year-old pharmacy worker from New Jersey who said he’s protested since Oct. 2. “We should be bailing out the American public — not corporations — by raising the minimum wage, bringing jobs back from overseas and improving labor conditions.”

Protesters criticized the government for propping up hobbled financial giants, including Citigroup Inc. (C) and Bank of America Corp. (BAC), with a $700 billion taxpayer-funded bailout in 2008, while leaving Americans to struggle with unemployment, depressed wages, soaring foreclosure rates and slashed retirement savings.

Anti-Wall Street Protests Spread From New York

“We bailed them out and they are not lending the money,” JoAnn Herr, 60, a retired sheet-metal worker from Oakland, California, said in an interview yesterday outside the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, where a march through downtown formed. “They are just holding onto it, giving themselves bigger bonuses and not paying their fair share of taxes.” CLICK HERE FOR THE REST OF THE STORY!

TYPHOON ROKE TO HIT JAPAN TOMORROW

In eoc, EYE ON CITRUS, EYEONCITRUS.COM, TYPHOON ROKE TO HIT JAPAN TOMORROW, World News on kp20 at 301120

Tokyos_Yellow_Rain Follow up: If things in Japan weren’t bad enough, what with the weekly earthquakes, the tsunami that hit in March, the continued radiation leaks from the destroyed nuclear power plants, now, tomorrow, a deadly typhoon is scheduled to make landfall. Japan will be evacuating 1.2 million people with this oncoming threat, but the question remains, what ramifications will the typhoon have on the continuing dangerous levels of radiation that have never been stopped at the Fukushima Nuclear Plant. It is known that in April of this year, a month after the devastation that hit Japan, American cities in the following states had radiation rain fall! Massachusetts, California, Washington, Nevada, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida all had radiation rainfall, with the primary concern being the safety of our drinking water. The poison rain comes on the wind currents and there is no way to predict where it will end up. The leaking Nuclear Plants needs to be capped (stopped) NOW!

There is no technology to remove the cores from the stricken reactors, it will be ten years before they attempt to do so. Conditions at Nuclear facilities are much worst than originally thought. In Russia at the Chernobyl disaster, which is located in the Ukraine,The abandoned city of Pripyat with Chernobyl plant in the distance they entombed the core in concrete which required Herculean efforts by many who lost their lives in the process.  However,  Japan is taking a different route, they are building huge frames that will go over the buildings and these frames will be covered by tents, in the hope the tents will contain the radiation that is coming off as steam and then they will be able to turn it into water and as water, they will be able to contain the radiation. Unlike Russia, which actually, evacuated the entire city adjoining Chernobyl, an area to this day, that is off limits because it is unsafe, Japan has evacuated a much smaller area, with the hope that the larger evacuation would not be necessary, disregarding the long term health of millions of people, not only in their nation, but people around the globe.
