Slowly but surely long hidden secrets from World War II have begun to filter out.
Most recently, an excellent article by Mark Wolverton, written for American Heritage Magazine, told a fascinating tale, little known until now:
The air at 20,000 feet above Schweinfurt, Germany, was icy cold, but the bombardier crouching in the nose of the B-17 hardly noticed. Sweat poured down his forehead as flak rocked the aircraft, periodically spattering his compartment's Plexiglas bubble with fragments. He focused intently on preparing for the final bombing run. He bent over the Norden bombsight, making adjustments with one gloved hand, his other hand grasping a dog-eared booklet filled with numbersâ€”the precise settings he needed to punch into the bombsight to ensure that the B-17's load released at the exact moment necessary to hit its target.
Soon after the United States entered World War II, the Army assembled a group of talented female mathematicians, left, including Shirley B (circled in top row) and Marlyn Wescoff (front row), to work under top secret conditions at the University of Pennsylvania. The ~computers" of the Philadelphia Computing Center solved many thousands of complex mathematical formulas In a top-secret program, where these talented, young female mathematicians calculated the artillery and bomb trajectories that American GIs used to win World War II
On the ground, artillerymen firing a 105 mm M2A1 howitzer at Carentan, France, counted on the PCS's charts to account for the effects of range, elevation, muzzle velocity, weather, and other factors on the trajectory of their shells.
Ten thousand miles away, a Marine sergeant stood next to a 75-millimeter M1A1 pack howitzer on the beachhead of a tiny Pacific Island, surveying a battalion of American soldiers preparing to charge a Japanese hillside position. But before the Marines could advance, the heavily dug-in enemy artillery atop the hill had to be silenced. Ignoring the bullets peppering the sand around him, the sergeant read out a series of numbers from a small chart he held, sending his gun crew scrambling to zero in on the Japanese positions.
Both the bombardier and the artillery sergeant depended on the accuracy of the figures they fed into their weapon systems. If the sergeants had known where those numbers had originated, they probably would have been astonished. The data were the work of a group of remarkable women with a flair for mathematics who were employed by the Army: the Philadelphia Computing Section (PCS) at the University of Pennsylvania. The Paper - 760.747.7119
Known as "computers" in an age when that term referred not to machines but to human beings, some of the women went on to help create the first electronic computer, ENIAC. Like the legendary Rosie the Riveters, who toiled in factories and war
plants, they were also vital to the war effort, but these computing Rosies worked in secrecy and anonymity, their contributions still largely unknown and unrecognized today. Firing table guide

‘TOP SECRET Rosies’ Cont. from Page 1 Math helped propel the military's technological gains of the 20th century. In previous centuries, warfare was literally a hit-or-miss affair. Especially at distances beyond a few feet, weapons were mostly inaccurate, clumsy, and inefficient. Whether aiming a musket across a battlefield or a cannon across the water, a soldier or sailor essentially pointed in the general direction of the enemy, fired, and hoped for a hit. War was also up close and personal: soldiers fired only at what they could see directly. Technological warfare opened the possibility of striking at what one couldn't see—landing an artillery shell on a hidden target over distant hills or dropping a bomb from a high-flying aircraft required firing tables with the correct trajectories, drop points, elevation angles, and muzzle velocities. These calculations also needed to take into account the constantly changing variables of temperature, air density, wind drift, and target position. Women operate a Bush differential analyzer machine In addition to hand computing on paper, Kay McNulty, Alyse Snyder, and Sis Stump, operated a Bush differential analyzer machine, a mechanical calculating machine developed in the

1930s, which helped crunch the enormous amount of data that went into establishing range projections for a variety of different field artillery pieces.
Even before World War II, the Army was busily perfecting an arsenal of new artillery and infantry weapons at its Ballistic Research Laboratory at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland. To develop the crucial data to operate those weapons, engineers crunched numbers with a Bush differential analyzer, a 30-foot-long mechanical calculating machine developed by MIT's Vannevar Bush in the early 1930s. A cadre of human computers also worked at calculating figures and compiling tables, using pencil, paper, and adding machines. But when America joined the conflict in 1941, the demands of total war forced the Army to enlist more help, and the lab commandeered the resources (and the additional differential analyzer) of the University of Pennsylvania's Moore Engineering School. That meant that a new corps of "computers" had to be assembled quickly to help process the data. With most able-bodied young men already serving in uniform, the Army sought out the most immediately available mathematical talent: young women with a gift for numbers. Principals from many high schools received an SOS from the military, remembered Doris Blumberg, who, along with her

For young women in the 1940s with a love of math and science, the PCS work represented an unparalleled opportunity. "If we went out and tried to get some other job between high school and college, it would be a dull kind of a thing, so we may as well go into something that is interesting," Doris said.
shooting this bullet; and where it was going. We knew the distance, and we had to figure out how it was going to get there, exactly where it had to land. The differential equations were part of the solution of the trajectory... We knew that's what we were hired to do, to create this book that was going to be distributed to the guys who were shooting the guns. They were going to use these tables to figure out how to hit a particular target." Goldstine's wife, Adele, also a gifted mathematician, was among the instructors, as was Mary Mauchly, married to Moore School professor John Mauchly—who would soon help initiate another secret war project.
"It's advanced mathematics," Shirley Blumberg explained. "Equations were solved in order to figure out the trajectory of a bullet or a bomb; just exactly where it started; what the muzzle velocity was of whatever was

twin sister, Shirley, was about to graduate from the Philadelphia High School for Girls in May 1942. "The principal called us in and said that they were recruiting women to do mathematical work at the University of Pennsylvania for the war effort, and that we were qualified." Both girls believed it was their duty to do their part.
Under the direction of Capt. Herman Goldstine, the research lab mathematician in charge of the PCS, the Army brought scores of young women to the university, mostly from the Philadelphia and Baltimore area at first but later from New York, New England, and the Midwest. The recruits dove right in, learning the specialized mathematical differentiation and integration techniques involved in ballistics calculations.

The mother of a 17-year-old girl was concerned that her daughter was having sex... Worried the girl might become pregnant and adversely impact the family’s status, she consulted the family doctor.
The doctor told her that teenagers today were very willful and any attempt to stop the girl would probably result in rebellion. He then told her to arrange for her daughter to be put on birth control and until then, talk to her and give her a box of condoms. Later that evening, as her daughter was preparing for a date, the mother told her about the situation and handed her a box of condoms.

Wartime secrecy regulations required that their superiors tell the Rosies little beyond the minimum necessary to do their jobs. "We did not know where these tables were going to be used," Shirley said. "We knew that they were going to be used in Europe, but we had no idea exactly where. We found out later, when we read the newspapers, where the big battle was. And we realized that some of the information—maybe all of the information they had on the tables—we developed in our office." They understood, of course, that their calculations would be used ultimately to kill other human beings, but most didn't dwell on any moral qualms until much later. Occasionally, though, they could- n't help but consider the realities of their work. One such occasion occurred in spring 1944 after the bloody landings at Anzio, Italy, during which the Allies attempted to capture Rome by outflanking German forces with an amphibious attack. "We had some big shots in Washington come up in military uniforms to give us an award," Shirley recalled. "They came in and stopped our working and said there was a presentation to be made. And this general got up there and told us how valuable our work is, and we were doing such a great job for the war effort... and that the landing on the beach at Anzio was a great success. And therefore, we're getting this big award for doing that wonderful work that made it such a success." For Shirley and most of her co-workers, it was merely a distraction: "We were in the middle of working. Let us finish what we're doing." Later, however, she had second thoughts. "When I read about the bloodbath on the Anzio beaches in the newspapers, I got physically ill." Doris had a similar experience when the Rosies were asked to create data for the invasion of Guam, where Japanese troops "were in trenches all around the island." She recalled discussions with their supervisors about different formulas to be used for computing shell trajectories depending on whether a Japanese soldier was standing or was lying flat in a trench or on the ground. "That kind of got to me... because it made it more personal. I thought, 'My god, what are we doing here?'"
The work continued, even after V-E Day saw the Rosies dancing in celebration in the gardens on the Penn campus. John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert were already secretly setting the stage for the first great leap beyond human computers and mechanical differential analyzers to the first electronic computer: the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer, or ENIAC. The women heard rumors about
an interesting project at the Moore School, but they didn't know any details. "We knew that these two guys were in this room right off the differential analyzer room, and that they were inventing something," Shirley recalled. "But we had no idea what they were inventing until much later. They invited a couple of us in there and said, 'Do you wanna see something?' They had this great big machine up against a wall and lots of lights and wires coming to it. And they took us in, and we said, 'What's that?' And they said, 'That's going to be the first electronic computer. That's going to do the work that you're doing in seconds.' We said, 'Yeah, go dream on, you crazy guys.'"
By June 1945, Mauchly and Eckert were ready to get ENIAC up and running, and they turned to the computing Rosies to help operate or, as it would soon be known, "program" the machine. Betty Jean Jennings, a math major from rural Missouri who had joined the PCS that spring, attended a meeting for potential programmers. "They didn't know what to ask us, basically," she said. "I remember Herman [Goldstine] asking me what I knew about electricity. I said I had had a course in physics and knew E = I/R. He replied what he really wanted to know was, 'Are you afraid of it?' I replied that I wasn't." Six women— Jennings, Kathleen (Kay) McNulty, Frances Bilas, Elizabeth (Betty) Snyder, Ruth Lichterman, and Marlyn Wescoff—from the PCS were selected to join the ENIAC project and went to Aberdeen for several weeks of training.
Although they had already been doing secret work with the PCS, they weren't even permitted to see the finished machine until the government had approved higher security clearances for them. Frantic preparations were under way for the computer's public unveiling, but in the meantime it remained top secret. Kay McNulty remembered, "Somebody gave us a whole stack of blueprints, and these were the wiring diagrams for all the panels, and they said, 'Here, figure out how the machine works and then figure out how to program it.' This was a little bit hard to do." They studied the intricate circuitry, wiring, logic, and operation of ENIAC, a 27-ton behemoth with almost 18,000 vacuum tubes, thousands of other parts, and miles of wiring.
After finally meeting Mauchly, they fired questions at him as they worked to develop the computer's programming. "Occasionally, the six of us programmers all got together to discuss how we thought the machine worked," Jennings recalled. "The biggest advantage of learning the ENIAC from the diagrams was that we began to understand what it could and could not do. As a result we could diagnose troubles almost down to the individual vacuum tube. Since we knew both the
application and the machine, we learned to diagnose troubles as well as, if not better than, the engineer.
By the fall they were preparing a demonstration program on how to compute a shell trajectory. Before that happened, however, two scientists arrived from Los Alamos to give ENIAC its first real-world problem to solve. Theoretical work on the hydrogen bomb had been under way at the lab for some time and continued after Japan's surrender. In October 1945 Stanley Frankel and Nicholas Metropolis decided to use ENIAC to explore how an atomic bomb could trigger a thermonuclear reaction.
It was all top secret, of course, and Frankel and Metropolis brought their own program with them to Philadelphia on a million IBM punch cards. But the women were essential to running the program and operating the machine. "The day we were going to put it on the machine is the first time we saw the ENIAC," Jennings recalled. "Herman Goldstine acted like the conductor of an orchestra and stood in the middle and said, 'Accumulator 1, Switch 1, set to Alpha Input,' you know, 'blah, blah,' and he was reading from their description. That was our first hands-on experience with the machine." ENIAC was set to be revealed to the public in February 1946. "About two weeks before the public announcement of ENIAC," remembered Jennings, "Herman and Adele Goldstine asked us if our trajectory program was ready to go. We said it was. They asked if we could have it up and running for the demonstration at the announcement. We said it could." The program, however, hadn't actually been tested, and although Jennings and her partner, Betty Snyder, were fully confident, no one could be sure until ENIAC had been taken through its paces.
The women worked days, nights, and weekends to get ready. John Mauchly shared a bottle of apricot liqueur with the programmers to wish them luck. Then, the night before the public demonstration, they hit a snag. "The trajectory program was running perfectly, except it didn't stop computing when [the shell] was calculated to hit the ground," Jennings said. "It kept going. Betty and I checked and rechecked everything until about 2 a.m. We couldn't figure out what on earth was going on." She credited Snyder with finding the answer. "I've always said that Betty uses more logic in her sleep than most people do awake. We used to have a problem and she'd come in the next morning and say, 'I was thinking, you know, maybe this,' and usually she was right. Well, that night she had her nighttime logic working. She came in the next

The Paper • Page 4 • May 14, 2015 Former Escondido Country Club Plans for 270 Homes Submitted to City
Escondido planners have received plans to build 270 homes by Stuck in the Rough, LLC.
Owner Michael Schlesigner had been suggesting this number of homes for the past six months; now the plans are officially submitted and the city council will, in due course, determine in a closed session hearing whether to appeal an earlier court ruling which went against the city, or to recommend approval of the necessary permits for Schlesinger to proceed. A Superior Court judge had ruled earlier that the City Council’s action forbidding development of the course was illegal.
If the council accepts the proposal, or a variation thereof, that is mutually acceptable then development may well proceed, barring any further legal complications.
Representing Mr. Schlesinger is Ali Shapouri, a Rancho Santa Fe based land planner and architect who has designed many communities in Southern California. Shapouri has designed the project. An actual builder has not yet been
Under current zoning more than 600 homes could be built on the property. These plans represent a substantial reduction for an earlier planned develoment of 430 homes. The lots would be a minimum of 7,000-square foot in size. The plans submitted have no golfing element, but call for 31 acres of open space as well as horizontal and vertical buffers for separation between the new homes and those in the adjacent neighborhood.
The proposal includes 270 single-family homes and a clubhouse complex that would include a swimming pool, spa, multi-purpose room, dining facilities for private events, indoor racquet court and a gym. One Killed, One Injured in Carlsbad Crash

More and more city legislators are voting to ban pet shops that sell live animals, particularly puppies and adult dogs.
Supporters of such legislation argue that it is a simple law of supply and demand. Eliminate the demand for puppies and dogs at the retail level and the puppy mills will be deprived of a market and seek to sell their animals elsewhere. This would open the doors to people being able to choose their animals from existing rescue organizations and humane societies, both of which have animals waiting for ‘forever homes.’
The San Marcos City Council is the latest to take a close look at the impact such a ban would have on eliminating puppy mills. They have imposed a 45 day ban on any new pet stores

It appears a big question for our young people now, is often whether to have sex on their first date? Does sexual promiscuity have a bearing on this question? The navy was noted for the many pregnancies on the “Love Boat” a few years ago. Has this situation been evaluated and corrected? Will the philosophy of “eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow we may die”,relate?
Fox-holes and bunkers require a unique togetherness for survival. Will such co-mingling over long periods of time create difficult sexual situations? Training for war is a far cry from actual combat.
Women and men are physically and mentally different. Women’s regular monthly conditions and potential pregnancies require consideration. There are positions for women in the military,but not in combat infantry.

Curbing Prescription Drug Abuse
The abuse of prescription pain killers has become a major health problem throughout the nation, particularly among the young. CBS News reported in 2014 that every day in the United States, 46 people die from pain killer overdoses. Providing alternative tamper resistant drugs, along with proper methods of storage and disposal, would go a long way toward preventing these tragedies.
In response to this public health crisis, Assembly Bill 623 (AB 623) was recently introduced by Assemblymember (and dentist) Dr. James Wood (DHealdsburg). AB 623 would require pharmacists to inform patients about storage and disposal of opioids at the time of purchase. The bill would also encourage the use of “Abuse Deterrent Formulations” (ADF), a new type of pill that makes the instant “high” abusers seek

morning and flipped one switch on the master programmer and the problem was solved." ENIAC's coming-out party before scientists and the press proved a huge success.
The women, however, soon found themselves shunted aside from sharing in that success. "You can see them being dismissed almost immediately," noted historian Nathan Ensmenger of the University of Pennsylvania. "They have a dinner in which they ask all the university bigwigs and military people and all of the men, and none of the women are invited." Historian Jennifer Light of Northwestern University concurred: "Newspaper accounts characterize ENIAC's ability to perform tasks as 'intelligent,' but the women doing the same computing tasks did not receive similar acclaim." A New York Times account of the demonstration marveled at how ENIAC solved a difficult problem in 15 seconds, she pointed out, while ignoring the many hours that the women spent setting up the problem on the machine.
Nowhere is this discounting of the women's contributions more evident than in the photographs that were used to publicize ENIAC. The first public photo appearing in the New York Times was a wide shot, showing both men and women working on the machine at various panels throughout the enormous computing room. Yet when the photograph was reprinted elsewhere, the women were usually cropped out. This was most obvious in an Army recruiting ad that appeared in various magazines later in 1946. Calling for "men with aptitude for scientific work" and extolling ENIAC as a prime example of "many amazing Army devices," the ad featured a heavily cropped version of the original Times photo, with only a single man shown working at a control panel. The message was clear: women need not apply; computers are for men.
Ensmenger and other historians cite "old-school sexism" for this
'These,' she explained, 'are the older goats put out to pasture when they no longer produce.' She then asked, 'What do you do in America with your old goats?' Marilyn Shea Attorney
prejudice. The disregard for women also signaled the beginning of the evolution of computer programming from a relatively unskilled clerical, "feminized" activity to a more technically skilled, supposedly more "masculine" pursuit. "Early computer programmers were women and were imagined to be fairly low skilled," Ensmenger observed. "But today, if you were to think about a computer programmer, at least that kind of stereotype would be almost exclusively male, a male of a very particular type"—the classic nerd with pocket protector and thick glasses. That stereotype developed slowly over the 1950s and 1960s. "I do think that, although people like Eckert and Mauchly probably recognized the women to a certain degree, at this point they still saw what they did as primarily clerical." To those with this perception, inviting the women to a celebratory dinner or anniversary celebration for ENIAC would be "like inviting the janitorial staff." And even the nature of early computing technology itself helped to perpetuate such unique in that it was programmed like a switchboard," Ensmenger continued. "It looked like a switchboard. [The programmers] looked like telephone operators, which by that period is completely feminized. So in a funny way, if it had looked different, it might have been thought of differently."
Because their story has lurked in the shadows until now, historians and others are still debating the ultimate influence of the Rosies on younger generations. But their contributions in World War II and to postwar computer science are clear. "I think they certainly showed that women were capable of doing science and making contributions to technology, which was, in terms of the 20th century, a real question for women," said historian Kathy Peiss of the University of Pennsylvania.
The Rosie the Riveters in the factories and war plants may have built the planes, tanks, and guns, but it was the math-savvy, top-secret, white-collar Rosies of the PCS who helped make it possible for those weapons to win the war.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
The Honey War
When Robert Lucas assumed the duties as Iowa’s territorial governor in the 1830s, he found a serious border dispute brewing. The issue: the boundary between Iowa and Missouri. Iowa’s first governor had been in office less than two years when the two states’ militias were faced off, ready to go to war.
When Missouri became a State in 1820, her northern boundary was the latitude passing through the "rapids of the river Des Moines." At the time, the land along that boundary was in the possession of Native American tribes, but when they were removed some years later, Missouri took steps to establish exact limits. In 1836, Missouri declared the "rapids in the Des Moines River and the parallel of latitude indicated that which ran through the great
bend in the Des Moines River near Keosauqua, Iowa.”
For many years the term "Des Moines Rapids" had been taken to mean the rapids in the Mississippi, just above the mouth of the Des Moines. Travelers, settlers, river men, and even the Indians called them the "Des Moines Rapids." To add more confusion, the southern boundary of Iowa was defined by the U.S. Congress as “the northern boundary of Missouri.”
Missouri claimed a strip of land some 13 miles wide, which today forms Iowa's southern border. The people living in Southern Iowa and Northern Missouri were of hearty pioneer stock and paid little attention to law, but when a Missouri sheriff tried to collect taxes on honey trees in what he considered being in his Clarke County, Iowa, settlers claimed he was out of his jurisdiction and arrested him. When the attempt to levy taxes was rebuffed, the Missouri governor ordered 1,000 militia to uphold what he deemed “the dignity of the State.”
Governor Lucas, of Iowa Territory, himself a soldier, had successfully settled a similar contest when he was governor of Ohio. Ohio and Michigan, quarreled over a piece of land known as the “Toledo Strip.” He was quick to react in this matter. Lucas called for the Iowa militia to repel an invasion by Missouri. The settlements in Iowa Territory of 1839, were scattered with a poorly organized militia. But within a short time the call to arms brought

500 Hawkeyes bearing down on the Missourians. The two forces were glaring at each other, anxious for a fight.
Fortunately no one was hurt. The Iowans sent a peace commission into Missouri. The result: Clarke County’s levying of taxes was withdrawn. A committee was dispatched to present the Iowa Territorial Legislature in Burlington with a proposal for friendly arbitration. Hawkeye troops were withdrawn and the Iowa Legislature agreed to a peace treaty.
But, although war was averted, the dispute wasn’t settled. It wasn’t until Jan. 3, 1851, did the U.S. Supreme Court make a final ruling. Iowa won. The Supreme Court did not accept the claims of either side as to the rapids. It was an old Indian boundary line run by a government surveyor in 1816, that was selected as the proper one. The eastern terminus of the boundary came farther south below the point insisted by Missouri, which satisfied Iowa. The question was decided just in time because Missouri was a slave State and Iowa was “free” of slavery. A boundary such as the one between the two states was vital.
Because the land claimed by both Iowa and Missouri was, for the most part, heavily wooded and rich in bee trees. The quarrel became known as the "Honey War." Many jokes were made between Iowans and Missourians about the contest; frontier poets wrote about it and stories were circulated for years about the time when Iowa and Missouri nearly went to war over a little bit ‘o honey.

Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written directly for neurosurgeons.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
Symptoms Are NOT The Problem

brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present.

extent of your disc damage for only $70. This examination will consist of a detailed neurological evaluation, extensive orthopedic testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings of your evaluation. He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).
In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while undergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment.

Buddy is the pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 7 month old, 42 pound, Treeing Walker Coonhound / Australian Shepherd mix.
Buddy will grow up to be a 60 to 80 pound adult. His new family will want to start training right away. He loves playing with people and dogs. He’s very active and always ready to have a good time. Buddy was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society from another shelter through the FOCAS program.
The $145 adoption fee for Buddy includes medical exam, vaccinations, spay, and microchip. Visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas or log on to SDpets.org. Call 760-753-6413 for more information. Kennels and Cattery open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day but Tuesday.
Buddy, a 2-year-old Domestic Short Hair, is the ultimate lap cat and loves attention from his human friends. As soon as you sit down, he will happily makes his way over to your lap. As a staff and volunteer favorite, Buddy has quickly earned the name “lap magnet” and is adored by everyone who meets him. He loves being petted and if you stop too soon, you might get a nudge to let you know he’s like to be petted a bit longer. He is FIV+, which means his immune system is a little more sensitive that other cats, but luckily cats with this condition can still live a long, healthy life, as long as they are kept indoors. Because Buddy has so much love to give, he’d prefer to be the only cat in your home. If you have room in your heart for Buddy, he will provide years of love and companionship. Buddy is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 East Valley Parkway. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (760) 888-2275.

May: Water Safety Month
In recognition of the popularity of water-related activities and the need for water safety education, May is National Water Safety month. When planning water activities, the Vista Fire Department reminds everyone to practice the ABC’s of water safety: • A: Adult supervision at all times. Always watch the water. • B: Barriers on all doors/gates leading to pool areas, including doggie doors. • C: Classes: Enroll kids in swim lessons. Learn CPR. Other safety tips include keeping a
first aid kit poolside and removing objects such as toys that could entice a child into the pool or area. Remove chairs/other furniture, so that a child cannot use it to climb into a fenced pool area. Remember, don’t think you’ll hear a child who is in trouble in the water; child drowning is a silent death, often with no splashing to alert anyone that the child is in trouble. Please practice water safety tips during the upcoming summer months. More information is available by contacting the Vista Fire Department 760.643.2801 or by going online at WaternationalSafetymonth.org.

Library’s 150th Anniversary Celebration of Alice in Wonderland
The Oceanside Public Library is please to present a special evening with bestselling author Melanie Benjamin as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Benjamin wrote a novel entitled Alice I have Been that explores the real story of Alice Liddell, the inspiration for Carroll’s beloved classic. In this creative work, Benjamin animates the fascinating and complex character from her girlhood as the daughter of the dean of Chris Church College, Oxford University, and friend of Lewis Carroll, to her adulthood. A love story and literary mystery, Alice I have

Trending in Notebooks and Desktops
Windows 7 grew from 50% to 60% of the World OS market in the past 12 months. Win 8/8.1 stayed at 14% throughout the year, Win XP shrunk from 22% to 16% and Vista dropped from 5% to 2%.
Market research companies sample millions of Internet contacts each month to develop the statistics on which OS (operating systems) and browsers are being used in both the mobile (smart phones/tablets) and PCs (desktops/notebooks.) Watching these trends tells us what products and companies are winning or losing in the battle for computing and communication. In PCs (desktop and notebook) the battle is fairly uneven.

Patrick "Skip" Jacovino Integrity Mortgage Group Senior Mortgage Consultant
This week we will be looking at the meaning of some commonly used terms in the mortgage world that can sometimes seem mysterious to someone who doesn’t work in the mortgage industry. If you are already familiar with these terms, congratulations! You have a good knowledge of mortgages. “Equity”: This is the dollar difference between what is “owed” on a home (or property) and what the property value actually is. For
Microsoft’s Windows OS on 92% of the World’s PCs while Apple’s iOS is on only 7% but don’t feel sorry for Apple. The sale of a $1000 Windows PC (Dell, HP etc) pays Microsoft about $50. When a $1000 Apple PC sells, Apple gets all of it. It takes the sale of twenty Windows PCs for Microsoft to get as much revenue as Apple gets from one $1000 Mac.
PC sales peaked four years ago and are in a slow decline. Smart phones and tablets have replaced notebooks for many applications and desktop PCs are lasting much longer. Windows 7 will dominate through 2020. Microsoft, Apple and PC makers have been forced to seek new sources of revenue. Microsoft has used its monopoly in PC OS to leverage revenue in other areas. Win 8 is essentially Win 7 with a touch screen look. It was intended to help Microsoft’s tablets and smart phones sales. It not only did not accomplish its intended purpose, it killed retail PC sales. First quarter business sales of PCs are up because businesses buy new PCs with Windows 7. Retail store PC sales are down as much as 50% because Microsoft banned the sale of Win 7 in retail stores and the word is out on Win 8. Win 8 will die in September. Its replacement Win 10, like Win 8, will bring no technological benefits to Win 7 users. Like
example, if Joe owes $200K on his home and the home is worth $350K, he has $150K in equity.
This leads us to our next term … “Loan-to-Value Ratio”: This is the equity in a home shown as a percentage. It is calculated by dividing the amount owed on a home by the value of the home. Joe’s example would be 200K owed divided by 350K value which gives us .57 (or 57%)…this is a low ratio, which is good. Lenders use this ratio to determine whether or not a client has enough equity to qualify for a mortgage loan. Most lenders want to see a loan-to value ratio of 80% or less (although many programs allow for much less equity such as VA and FHA loans) “Debt to Income Ratio”: This is another qualifying tool that lenders use. It is calculated by taking a client’s monthly expenses that appear on their credit report and dividing the total by their monthly gross income (income before tax withholding). For example, Joe has mortgage and credit expenses of $2500 per month and makes $6000 a month (before taxes). His ratio is 2500 divided by 6000= .41 or 41%. Most lenders like a ratio of 45% or less to qualify.
“FICO score”: This is a credit score that lenders use to determine credit-worthiness. There are actually three major companies that provide these scores (Experian, Equifax, and Transunion). The scores range from 300-850. The higher the score the better. Most people should strive to have a score above 740. Making timely
Win 8, the purpose of Win 10 will be to improve Microsoft’s bottom line, not to provide new and useful technology to users. Win 10 will be free to anyone who wants it. Why free? Because Win 10 is designed to sell Microsoft cloud services and Applications Store products. Win 10 is basically a neutered, twisted and shrunk version of Win 7 able to be crammed into a Microsoft smart phone or tablet. Since Microsoft has only a low single digit penetration in those markets, Win 10 isn’t likely to cause a stampede.
years old, bring it in and get it up-dated to Win 7, it should be good for another five years. Any Win 7 PC should be good through 2020. If you have Wins 8/8.1 either bring it in and have Win 7 installed or wait till September and upgrade to Win 10. Win 10 should look and work more like Win 7. If you need to buy a new home or business PC come in and get one of our Win 7 desktop or notebooks. If you need a PC now and can’t afford a new one check out our trade-in notebook and desktop Win 7 PCs starting at $175.
payments on credit accounts and keeping credit card balances low helps raise scores.
If you have a PC with Win XP or Vista that’s less than eight
“APR vs Interest Rate”: I could write an entire column on the difference. The interest rate is the contract rate on a mortgage. The APR is a term coined by the government to let clients know when they are financing closing costs on a loan. Give me a call or shoot me an email if you would like a detailed explanation. I enjoy talking about it! Good Faith Estimate: This is a document a lender must give a client within 3 days of a mortgage application. It outlines the loan amount, the rate, the payment, closing costs (if any) ... and also if the rate is locked in or not. A very
Next week: “trending in smart phones and tablets.”
Rate Lock: Very important. This secures your rate for the time it takes to process a mortgage loan. Always make sure your rate is locked when working with a lender. And know how long the rate lock is for. They range from 15 days to 90 days (in general). The longer the lock period, the more protection you have against rate fluctuations in the market. There are many terms that I did not go over due to space and some that I just scratched the surface. If there is anything you would like to know, please email or call me direct. I am always happy to talk about mortgage loans and there is never a cost or obligation to speak with me. Have a great week!

opening until their staff have a chance to study the issues and determine if the ban should be permanent. While such a ban would restrict the sale of commercially bred dogs it would not impact the ability of rescue organizations to supply the consumer with healthy, vetted animals. The council voted unanimously to impose the 45 day ban.
Businessman David Salinas opened a store called Mini Toy Puppies in a shopping center off Nordahl Road which drew immediate protests and picketing. Salinas has been ordered to shut down in both San Diego and Oceanside. The ban will not immediately affect him; whether the protests will or not remains to be seen. Mayor Jim Desmond said the purpose of the temporary ban was to give officials time to research the matter “to be sure we get it right.”
In recent years, dozens of cities throughout the country have adopted bans targeting commercially bred animals, including San Diego, Chula Vista, Los Angeles, Irvine and West Hollywood. It is anticipated that efforts will be launched to persuade the Escondido City Council to issue a similar ban. Organizers and supporters of such a ban will be closely watching the issue.

Locally, Southern California Animal Defenders have played a major role in keeping the pressure on these retail outlets, and providing reams of documented information as to the abuses so many breeding dogs and their puppies have been subjected to in order to place them on the market.
Folks, there are so many great animal rescure organizations in San Diego County that you can find most any breed of pup or dog you want . . . and you’ll be saving not only their lives but the lives of many other dogs that can and will be rescued once the retail pet stores are prohibited from buying these animals from puppy mills and selling them at outrageous prices.
Yes, I am biased. I have two rescue pups . . . (only we call them our daughters). From them we receive unqualified, unreserved, love . . . and dedication. We are also the co-founder (along with good pal, Bruce Krider) of the Puppy Coaliton Foundation. We fight for the rights of dogs!
