They turned to SBNC for all of their family’s health needs, especially the extra care that was needed in bringing Max into the world. “As grateful new parents, every time they sold a piece of their artwork, a portion of that precious sale was donated to the clinics in gratitude for the excellent health care they had received,” Dr. Fenzi continued.

New State Law Goes Into Effect January 1st

One Person’s Trash is Another’s Treasure:

ReSource Center Automatically Converts Organic Waste Into Energy & Compost

L

By Daisy Scott / VOICE

OCALS PLANNING TO MAKE NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS TO MINIMIZE THEIR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT can anticipate extra support from Santa Barbara County this January. Following California’s new State law SB 1383, requiring businesses and residents to recycle food and green waste, the County has launched a new ReSource Center to convert organic waste into energy and compost. With an automatic processing system being applied to all gathered waste, individuals do not need to make any changes to contribute to this beneficial facility. “With this new facility, approximately 60 percent of additional waste from our trash cans is diverted from the landfill, bringing our region’s diversion rate to above 85 percent while significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” explained the County’s Public Works Department in a statement. “This means that residents who live or work in these areas are following the new state law by continuing to throw their waste into the same bins as you are today.” Located off Highway 101 on the Gaviota Coast, the ReSource Center processes all commercial and residential waste collected in Santa Barbara, Goleta, Buellton, Solvang, and unincorporated regions throughout Cuyama Valley, Santa Ynez Valley, and the South Coast. An aerial view of the Anaerobic Digestion Facility and Compost Management Unit Ultimately, the facility holds the goals of decreasing the amount of Since all waste collected in the areas served by the ReSource Center is sorted the same waste sent to area landfills, promoting better air quality, and producing way, residents do not need to make any changes as to how they separate their green waste, enough renewable energy to support up to 3,000 homes each year. trash, and recyclable items. However, there are also additional opportunities to maximize This energy, in addition to compost, is created by the ReSource Center’s Anaerobic organic waste recycling, including the County’s Backyard Composting Program, which Digestion Facility (ADF). Once organic waste, including food waste and green waste, is provides guidance on how individuals can compost themselves. collected and brought to the center, it is all placed inside the ADF. The waste sits in the The County further offers a Commercial Food Scraps Collection Program for ADF’s bunkers businesses that experience large amounts of food waste, and yard waste collection to for two, 28 daysannually produce more than 40,000 tons of mulch. long anaerobic To learn more about these opportunities and the ReSource Center, visit www.lessismore.org digestion cycles, during which time it is sprayed with a bacteriainfused liquid. This bacteria breaks the waste down, releasing methane inside the bunker. The methane is collected to generate electricity that The Anaerobic Digestion Facility, where organics become energy and compost powers the facility itself, with extra energy being sold to area electricity grids. The remaining material is then spread outside to dry, making it easy to sort out any remaining plastics or glass. This way, only compost is left behind. The ReSource Center also relies upon a Material Recovery Facility (MRF) to process collected waste. As waste is sent to the Tajiguas Landfill, the MRF uses various screens, fans, magnetic drums, and optical scanners to sort through the discarded materials, with some staff members reviewing the portions for any missed items. This ensures organic and green waste is sent to the ADF, while recyclable materials are separated to be sold and made into new products, minimizing the amount of waste going into the landfill.

of New Caps?

Because workforce housing is the entire community’s challenge, and because the local minimum wage is not a living wage in Santa Barbara, the burden of changing the situation should not fall on one small group of people like landlords. The City Council should consider a significantly larger contribution to the Housing Authority as well as streamlining the permitting process and forgiving their fees. This would change the situation and benefit everyone.

VOICE Editorial:

Everyone Is Involved

Healthcare Workers and Educators Have Stepped Up!

K

UDOS TO ALL THE INDIVIDUALS AND ORGANIZATIONS who have stepped up to protect and serve our community, state, nation, and international visitors — especially healthcare workers and educators! This pandemic and similar situations throughout history sort individuals and organizations according to

their priorities and support for others, their families, and communities. As everyone is forced to carry on, it is important that contributors and their good work be recognized. Healthcare workers have risked their lives, sometimes even endangering their loved ones, to provide care and protections for the most vulnerable and pandemic-

affected individuals. They’ve offered a courageous effort to protect and serve others in our community, while experiencing high workloads, psychological distress, shortage of quality personal protective equipment, as well as social exclusion and stigmatization. But their efforts have worked to fast track our recovery. Educators, from kindergarten to the university

level have flexed to online learning and stepped up to be vaccinated for the good of young people, and their students’ physical wellbeing. These positive moves have given momentum and forward motion for the basic needs of our community regardless of the dangers. Many essential workers and first responders have heeded the call to a higher commitment to the fundamental needs that have arisen during the pandemic. These actions and the attitude of caring have saved lives and protected our community, actions which place a higher value on others rather than one’s self. We often call this kind of sacrifice heroic. While this good work continues on, others have asked for incentives to leverage their participation in stepping up. They have demanded individual freedoms over mutual wellbeing; sometimes this has been in direct contradiction of their purported mission to protect and serve our community. These individuals and

organizations are ill-informed and subsequently irresponsible. With educator and medical care teams leading the way to serve and protect our community, we hope Sheriff Bill Brown’s leadership will bring his team into compliance with the standards they agreed to as an important component of their service to the Santa Barbara Community. When all our teams are up and running and working together, our community will become safer and healthier in 2022. Communities are formed by relationships that embrace the “common” of a multitude of interests and necessities. Our community will survive this ongoing adversity and our mutual challenges caused by COVID-19. Following the adversity of this pandemic, there will be many celebrations, awards, and accolades given to those who step up. This will become a part of the rich history of Santa Barbara. This call to protect and serve continues to go out to all.

HEN LAST WE CAUGHT GENERAL PUBLIC SIGHT of the renowned veteran photographer – and long-time Santa Barbaran – Santi Visalli, he was lighting up the big screen. Film director Andy Davis, also a long-time Santa Barbaran, created the charming short documentary Mentors: Tony and Santi, which premiered at the 2020 Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Davis’s doc neatly captures the camaraderie, legacies, and swaths of history related to Visalli and another Santa Barbara-landed photographer of note, Tony Vaccaro.

In the show Santi Visalli at 90: Una Storia, the primary subjects are ostensibly famous figures in the frames, mostly shot for high-profile magazines in the ‘60s and ‘70s. But, as with all good portraiture, the eye and touch of the artist is also a critical part of what makes each picture hum. This selection of 29 black-and-white images presents a broad assortment of celebrities, from varied corners of the cultural spectrum. Occasionally, the subjects are seen in discernibly posed settings, but more often, are caught in their respective creative acts. From the world of international cinema titans, Fellini is seen on the set of his 1975 film Casanova; Francois Truffaut, in costume, on the set of The Wild Child; and stylish Italian firebrand Lina Wertmuller, cutting a striking figure while making Pasqualino.

In Visalli’s starkly beautiful shot, the spotlight-bathed Fitzgerald appears like a regal, radiant presence against the black backdrop/ void. Visalli’s intimate shots, with insights into personae of celebrated public persons, grab the eye and heart in diverse ways. Counter-culture visions include Timothy Leary, as tripping mystic, alongside a voyeuristic peek into the home of Allen Ginsberg, who is espied in a feverish moment of writing.

Environmental Defense Center to Protect Drinking Water for Communities Surrounding Cat Canyon

I

N SUPPORT OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL DEFENSE CENTER’S EFFORTS TO PROTECT DRINKING WATER for communities living by the Cat Canyon Oil Field, the Fund for Santa Barbara has given the organization $10,000 in grant funding. This move follows recent requests from oil operators in northern Santa Barbara County’s Cat Canyon Oil Field for the state agency responsible for overseeing oil and gas operations (CalGEM) to grant them an exemption from the federal Safe Drinking Water Act. With this exemption, the oil operators could inject hot steam and toxic wastewater into aquifers beneath a groundwater basin. Now, this funding will support the EDC as it continues its research and distribution of information about the Cat Canyon Aquifer Exemption to clients and partners. All of this is done in an effort to prevent damage to the area’s drinking water, groundwater used for agriculture, and the health of neighboring communities. “If approved, the Cat Canyon Aquifer Exemption could open the door for an expansion of dangerous steam injection operations in the Cat Canyon Oil Field,” explained the EDC in its funding announcement. “This form of enhanced oil recovery is not conventional. It is riskier and extremely carbon intensive, further contributing to the climate crisis. The injection of oil field fluids and hot steam into aquifers threatens to contaminate drinking water for North County residents as well as freshwater needed to support local agricultural operations.” Already, parts of Cat Canyon Oil Field are listed among the top one percent for groundwater threats. This only adds to area concerns about additional degradation of groundwater if the exemption is granted. To learn more visit www.environmentaldefensecenter.org

Sounds About Town

O

N THIS FINAL DAY OF ANOTHER STRANGE AND STILL-UNSETTLED YEAR, rounding the corner to a new year and new flavors of hope, it’s hard to ignore the impulse to reflect on the old and new – and the “new normal” we wish would exit stage left. In terms of live music, the purview of this column, one year ago found the world in a cautiously positive mood, collectively trashing 2020 as a year we wanted time to forget. Any sense of regular live music programing and concertizing was still months away, and the assumption was that humanity (and America) would flock to the obvious necessity of mass inoculation. But we digress, partly. Fast forward to now, and a new year and season of music is poised to flower starting in January, but not without the specter of fear triggered by the omicron variant’s ravaging path. New York’s cultural scene has virtually shut down, and we wonder, “wither goes NYC goes the country, and world?” Given that caveat, an air of subject-to-change-andcancellation hovers over what’s ostensibly to come.

Santa Barbara enjoyed a rich autumnal harvest of memorably concerts, and the 2021 slate brims with the teasing promise of cultural life returning to regularly scheduled programming.

Pianist Olga Kern and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be presented by CAMA at the Granada on January 11th

In a sense, the musical new year begins tonight with a pre-midnight New Year’s Eve tradition, as the Santa Barbara Symphony does up its accessible pops ‘n’ hooters party at the Granada, ending at ten to accommodate revelers with midnight-toasting plans. January’s musical menu is highlighted by the long-

awaited return of the city’s 100+ year-old CAMA, presenting internationallycelebrated artists. The Granada will host the luminous likes of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on January 11th, with conductor Vasily Petrenko and pianist Olga Kern, and CAMA’s most venerable visitor, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, on January 28th, with guest conductor Elim Chan and pianist Igor Levitt as soloist. Note: that program, with Beethoven and Mendelssohn as main courses, opens with an LA Phil commission of young composer Elizabeth Ogonek’s Cloudline, a U.S. Premiere, right here in River City.

CAMA’s impressive roster has as its KT Tunstall will perform at the Lobero Theater main attraction the London Symphony on January 21st Orchestra, with Sir Simon Rattle at the podium, March 24th, and a four-pack of high-end chamber music evenings at the Lobero Theater in its “Masterseries” component. Another clear January pinnacle in town arrives January 14th and 16th at the Lobero, when Handel comes to town. Opera Santa Barbara, which has devised a fascinatingly diverse and venturesome season, breaks the seeming moratorium on tapping the healthy oeuvre of Handel operas with its production of the 1744-vintage Semele, set here in the jazzed-swirl of 1920s Los Angeles. If memory (institutional and otherwise) serves, the last serious Handel opera came courtesy of Marilyn Horne/Music Academy of the West’s production of Rodelinda at the Lobero, in the summer of 1999. The Baroque opera master’s return is overdue. The Lobero’s own concert/event roster continues to lure us into the historic theater, and January includes a return by KT Tunstall (January 21st) and the rightlyEnjoy the Punch Brothers at UCBS Campbell Hall on January 18th heralded Anaïs Mitchell (January 29th), who dazzled with her Hadestown musical at the Lobero years back, part of the long-running “Sings Like Hell” series.

Looking at musical life beyond January, the prospects are bright. A&L’s schedule boasts such highlights as Joshua Bell (February 3rd at the Granada) and Wynton Marsalis’ Jazz at Lincoln Center (February 4th at the Granada)—live and in person, vs. their fine streamed concert in the fall of 2020. Of high interest is phase two of the Danish String Quartet “Doppelganger Project,” at Campbell Hall on April 27th, with Schubert melded in with newly-commissioned works inspired by Schubert. DSQ gave us one of the very finest musical evenings of 2021, at Rockwood in October. Acclaimed Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov, whose Bach interpretation captivated an SRO crowd at Campbell Hall, pre-pandemic, returns with a diverse recital program on April 30th. The Santa Barbara Bowl springs back to full season action with a season already partially gone public, kicking off with alt J and Portugal. The Man on March 26th and closing (so far) with a double shot of mighty star-next-door and Hawaiian in Santa Barbara Jack Johnson, October 4th and 5th.

Assistance League of SB Bakes 1,200 Cookies for Food From the Heart Meal Recipients

B

AKING WITH LOVE AND CARE, 25 members of the Assistance League of Santa Barbara baked, bagged, and delivered 1,200 cookies to local nonprofit Food From the Heart earlier this holiday season. Each of these cookies brought cheer and something sweet to community members with major illnesses, failing health, or who are recovering from surgeries who receive the organization’s meals. Members brought cookies to the Assistance League chapter house, where volunteers bagged them for delivery to local residents. Beyond this contribution, Assistance League members also provided the hams for the The Assistance League of Santa Barbara team of bakers sharing their cookies Food From the Heart December holiday meals. Members additionally donated 125 mini-boxes of Sees’ truffle candies to Meals on Wheels of Santa Barbara. “The home-baked cookies were divided into 170 bags with seven different cookies in each bag,” said Sydney Tredick, committee chair. “There were many kinds of delectable cookies, from chocolate chip to rolled, dropped, sliced, and bars.”

ETTING A MUCH-NEEDED RECORD FOR SPREADING HOLIDAY CHEER THIS SEASON, the Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation’s annual Project Holiday endeavor ensured that over 70 families throughout the tri-counties were granted Christmas trees, gifts, and more. This far surpassed prior years’ programs, which sponsored an average of 35 to 40 families each December. When combined with the organization’s annual Holiday Party held in partnership with Cottage Children’s Medical Center, TBCF’s positive impact on local children’s holiday seasons truly shone. TBCF’s Project Holiday program entails organization supporters and volunteers sponsoring entire families by providing $100 gifts for each child in the household, a Christmas tree and holiday decor, and a filled stocking. “As unimaginable as a pediatric cancer journey seems, the weight often becomes intensified over the holiday season with the addition of financial and emotional stressors,” read a TBCF statement. “It is precisely due to those stressors that TBCF created their Project Holiday program...” TBCF also hosted its annual Dick Poole dressed as Santa for TBCF’s Holiday Party Holiday Party, transforming it into a in Santa Barbara drive-through event at the Mission Hope Cancer Center in Santa Maria and the Ridley Tree Cancer Center in Santa Barbara. As families drove their cars into the decorated lots, Santa filled their trunks with gifts for each child in the household. Jeff Zamora, a former TBCF recipient whose son battled cancer ten years ago, wore the Santa suit in Santa Maria. In Santa Barbara, Dick Poole and Pat Weeks dressed up as Santa and Mrs. Claus, dancing as they handed out gifts. There were also special appearances from mini horses, elves, stormtroopers, and Elsa as well. There was also an exciting announcement about additional support being provided to families in need. “TBCF has excitedly dreamt big alongside our families over the past year; however, as we also have built strong empathic connections with our families, we are in a unique position to understand the exact needs of our families,” said Corey Pahanish, TBCF’s Executive Director. “Our families are not only battling pediatric cancer, they are also experiencing food insecurity and heightened transportation needs. With the support of an anonymous donor, this year we will be addressing these insecurities by providing 70 families with $250 grocery gift cards and $250 gas cards.” To learn more visit www.teddybearcancerfoundation.org

Christmas Eve Rainbow Touches Down in SB

John Palminteri

What’s Been Happening? SB Organizations Support Community Members In Need Over the Holidays It was AN AMAZING CHRISTMAS EFFORT by Adam’s Angels (Adam McCaig), the Santa Barbara Agriculture and Farm Education Foundation, and Santa Barbara County. They united at the Veterans Memorial Building on Christmas Day to feed about 400 people fed tamale dinners, and offered supplies to help them going forward. If these loving volunteers didn’t do this, would anyone?

A CHRISTMAS EVE FOOD DISTRIBUTION from the Food Bank of Santa Barbara County helped hundreds on Santa Barbara’s Eastside. They offered enough food for a holiday dinner, and other essentials including quick COVID tests.

New Year, New Local Calendar! One of the most beautiful ways to enjoy the Santa Barbara region each year is with the BILL ZELDIS CALENDAR with amazing pictures of scenic locations and events. This is his 28th calendar. It’s always hard to pick a favorite.

EconomicVOICE Here’s To a Lasting Housing Recovery!

S

By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

INCE IT IS THE HOLIDAYS, I want to propose a New Year’s toast to a lasting housing recovery. Firstly, home builders are beginning to play catchup with the housing shortage that has plagued those wanting a place to live since the end of the Great Recession and busted housing bubble. That’s when construction ground to a halt because one million more homes were built than were needed at the time. Does this mean the housing market could begin a decade-long recovery as has happened in the past? It’s possible. Consumers are flush with cash from the pandemic aid and the personal savings rate is still at a post-recession high (6.9 percent). More than 1,800,000 housing units per year were constructed during the height of the housing bubble in 2006 (see graph above), which fell to just 400,000 units annually during the Great Recession in 2008 (gray bar), which is part of the reason for the current housing shortage. The last two recoveries lasted approximately ten years. So why not toast the possibility that this may be a housing recovery that might last, if the other roadblocks to a housing recovery, labor and material shortages should ease next year? To fill the very low inventory of homes for sale, construction is booming, despite the labor and material shortages. “Single-family housing starts in November were at a rate of 1,173,000; this is 11.3 percent above the revised October figure of 1,054,000. The November rate for units in buildings with five units or more was 491,000,” according to the Census Bureau (https://www.census.gov/construction/nrc/pdf/newresconst.pdf). Rising existing-home sales are helping to fill the housing need.

Existing-home sales rose 1.9 Lynn Franco, Senior Director of Economic Indicators percent to a seasonally adjusted at The Conference Board said, “The Present Situation Index annual rate of 6.46 million dipped slightly but remains very high, suggesting the economy in November, the National has maintained its momentum in the final month of 2021.

And there is room to grow more proportion of consumers planning to purchase homes, automobiles, major appliances, and vacations over the next six sales. months all increased.” More than seven million So this is the right time to raise a toast to a continued housing existing homes were sold in 2005 recovery—and a Happier New Year! at the height of the housing bubble, per the above existing-home sales graph but sales declined to four million in 2008 during the Harlan Green © 2021 Follow Harlan Green on Twitter: Great Recession (gray bar in graph). https://twitter.com/HarlanGreen Unsold inventory is at a 2.1-month supply in November, the Harlan Green has been the 16-year Editor-Publisher of lowest since January.

Art Matters

By Edward Goldman, ART Matters

HAVEN’T BEEN TO THE MOCA GRAND FOR MORE THAN A YEAR, but I’ve heard that the exhibition of recent acquisitions is quite an adventure. And indeed, what I saw there yesterday was full of surprises. Most of the permanent collection is temporarily in storage, so your full attention is on the new acquisitions. And among them are a few showstoppers by artists whose works I had not seen before.

The immersive installation, Cromosaturación, by Carlos Cruz-Diez (1923-2019), a Franco-Venezuelan artist, consists of three rooms flooded with colors streaming through the windows. Then, you’re invited to enter these rooms and that’s where you become washed over with colors, which makes you happily drunk. Reading the wall text, I discovered that this impressive artwork is jointly owned by MOCA and The Hirschhorn Museum, Washington, D.C. Smart choice!

Post-Christmas Art Surprises at MOCA

Carlos Cruz-Diez Cromosaturación, 1965

You definitely want to see this piece very closely, which gives you the impression of surfing on these graphic waves. In addition to that, it also made me imagine that I was hearing music and seeing pages of music scores dancing into the air. Was I drunk...?

Another reason to visit MOCA Grand in the upcoming weeks is to see the solo exhibition, Every Shut Eye Ain’t Sleep, by New York artist, Jennifer Packer (b. 1984). This exhibition, curated by Bennett Simpson, is Packer’s first show on the West Coast. Her portraits of friends and family have an unsettling feeling that the artist not only wants to pay homage to them, but also wants to convey a sense of vulnerability and danger, which stayed with me long after I left the museum. The exhibition runs through February 22, 2022.

So my friends, after you finish unwrapping holiday presents, give yourself a gift of strolling through the MOCA Grand galleries full of surprises...

Mark Rothko L: No 61 (Rust and Blue) [Brown Blue, Brown on Blue], 1953 R: No. 301 (Reds and Violet over Red/Red and Blue over Red), 1959

Now, only one gallery at the MOCA Grand is dedicated to the glory of its permanent collection, with a few masterpieces by Mark Rothko (19031970) on display. The art labels remind us that these magic paintings are part of the Count Panza Collection acquired by the museum almost 40 years ago for $11 million. Then, this amount of money was unheard of to pay for post-WWII art. Today, just one painting by Mark Rothko sells for over $65 million.

Wolfgang Tillmans Ostgut Freischwimmer (detail), 2004

Confronting the gigantic work by German photographer, Wolfgang Tillmans (b. 1968), my first thought was that it was a huge pencil drawing on paper. Reading the label text, I learned that “he exposed light-sensitive paper with handheld light sources (light pens, flashlights, and lasers) in the darkroom.”

In an adjacent gallery, I had fun walking through and around the mirrored architectural sculpture, Briccs 2, by Los Angeles artist, Lauren Halsey (b. 1987). There are hundreds of mirrored tiles covering the sculpture with graffiti tags across them, which creates a challenging experience of seeing your reflection with graffiti tattoos across your face.

ART for the Holidays

A

By Kerry Methner / VOICE

DDING COLOR AND SPIRIT or refreshing a soul longing for the end of the pandemic, art is a wonderful addition to the holidays. Each year, Santa Barbara, home to thousands of artists and art lovers, comes alive with curated and group exhibitions aiming to slake our thirst for the aesthetic in the form of affordable original work.

While much of seasonal shopping is over, there’s still time to take in several of these exhibitions, if not before the New Year, at least before they disappear. At Marcia Burtt Studio, Holiday 2021 runs through February 6th. “It can’t be said often enough how lucky we are to live on California’s Central Coast. I have the additional blessing of being immersed in art that influences and enhances how I observe our idyll between mountains and ocean,” wrote Cynthia Stahl, Gallery Director of the exhibition. “Even tending my garden has been magnified by Anne Ward’s botanical patterns and Dana Hooper’s lush observations of domesticated farm life. A daily walk — a daily reminder of how nature influences our artists as well as how living with and appreciating art transforms us.” A favorite for sheer volume, talent, and excitment, 100 Grand is on the walls at Sullivan Goss through January 24th. While upwards of 70 of the pieces have been purchased, 30 Crater Lake, acrylic, 32x30 in. by Michael Ferguson, at Marcia Burtt Studio

more are still available – and, everyone can look for free at work by local artists and selected by the Gallery’s Susan Bush. If the Omicrom variant is making your heart beat with anxiety about venturing out among holiday crowds, many of the holiday exhibitions are also online. Consider Goleta Valley Art Association’s Picassos for Peanuts for online viewing through March 31st at: www.thegoletavalleyartassociation.org.

And, the Holiday Show 2021 at 10 West Gallery is online and in person at the gallery through January 17th: www.10westgallery.com. It’s too early to know how 2022 will play out, but it’s never to soon to take a moment and immerse yourself in color and the vision of an artist – especially a local artist – and feel your soul respond.

ESPITE BEING NAMED AFTER HIS GRANDFATHER, a renowned art dealer, Vincent Van Gogh did not launch his painting career until he was 27 years old. Born to a minister and his wife, Van Gogh was the eldest of his six surviving siblings — morbidly being given the same name as his older brother who died a year before his birth. Self-Portrait with Pipe, SeptemberAs a teenager, Van November 1886, Oil on canvas, by Gogh followed his Vincent van Gogh namesake by working for art dealers Goupil & Cie in The Hague, later transferring to their London and Paris locations. After being fired at age 23, Van Gogh bounced from job to job, working as a teacher’s assistant and a bookseller before devoting himself to Christianity for the next four years. It was only then that Van Gogh settled upon what would ultimately become his legacy — painting. www.vangoghmuseum.nl The Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s exhibition, Through Vincent’s Eyes: Van Gogh and his Sources, opens February 27th, 2022. www.SBMA.net
