Hospice of Santa Barbara Continuing to Serve Patients and Clients while Preparing Community for COVID-19 Impacts


S WE ADAPT TO THE NEW REALITY OF COVID-19, one thing is clear—Our services are needed now more than ever. While our physical office is closed for in-person visits, all staff is working with clients, patients, and their families. We changed to a telehealth model whereby clients receive grief counseling and attend support groups via phone or HIPAAcompliant video chat services such as Zoom. While this model is quite easy for adults and even teens to adapt to, it will take some time to determine what will work best for each individual who needs grief counseling. As our community braces for a wave of potential death due to COVID-19, there is no doubt that many in our community

Governor Outlines Future

LOVES, MASKS, AND CELL PHONES may be a part of the transitional normal in upcoming weeks as Santa Barbara and the world moves out of sheltering in place and into a universe that has not yet found a vaccine for COVID-19. Governor Gavin Newsom outlined on Tuesday what it will take to loosen the current restrictions in California while still protecting individuals from the virus. At the same time, changes around the world may indicate measures that locals could be asked to implement and participate in. “While Californians have stepped up in a big way to flatten the curve and buy us time to prepare to fight the virus, at some point in the future we will need to modify our stay-at-home order,” said Governor Newsom. “As we contemplate reopening parts of our state, we must be guided by science and data, and we must understand that things will look different than before.” Gloves are one of the most common types of protection used in health care and health emergencies and are a rising concern in fighting COVID-19. In a virus caused pandemic, gloves play an important Governor Gavin Newsom role. The Center for Disease Control recommends individuals learn the proper use of gloves, including washing before and after glove use and the need to disinfect surfaces that have been touched by soiled gloves. Like with masks, gloves are in short supply. Everyone is encouraged to avoid hoarding and to be respectful of the needs of health workers and first responders. As varied as the world’s cultures, response to contain the virus has crossed many spectrums. In New York and in Wuhan,

China, wearing masks has become mandatory. On Wednesday, Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York, ordered New Yorkers to wear protective masks or face coverings when in public; he gave them a three day grace period to begin. The executive order is part of a new normal which will accompany a gradual reopening of business, according to Cuomo, who announced the policy at his daily news conference on the COVID-19 pandemic. The new order will be enforced by local agencies. “The more testing, the more open the economy,” Cuomo also said. On another front, color coded cell phone stickers now indicate the extent of individuals’ freedom to move around in Wuhan, China. The color green on a cell phone shows the person is symptom-free and gives them access to subways, hotels, or the center of the city. Travel restrictions are placed for individuals with yellow or red symbols. In Japan, every household will receive two masks from the government. And, South Korea has implemented a central tracking app called Corona 100m, which informs people of known cases of the virus within 100 meters of where they are, according to a Guardian article. Infrared thermometers are being used to screen individuals at airports, apartment buildings, and even stores in China, Russia, Italy, Canada, Mexico, and South Korea to name a few. Newsom outlined six key indicators that will be used to guide California’s thinking for when and how to modify the stay-at-home and other orders set in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. He also announced a working relationship with Oregon and Washington. The Governor said there is not a precise timeline for modifying the stay-at-home order, but that these six indicators will serve as the framework for making that decision. He also noted that he anticipates that things will look different as California makes modifications and moves to reopen its economy. For example, restaurants will have fewer tables and classrooms will be reconfigured to allow for social distancing. Courtesy Photo

California’s Path Forward To Address Diverse Needs

California’s six indicators of readiness to modify its stay-athome order are: • The ability to monitor and protect our communities through testing, contact tracing, isolating, and supporting those who are positive or exposed • The ability to prevent infection in people who are at risk for more severe COVID-19 symptoms • The ability of the hospital and health systems to handle surges • The ability to develop therapeutics to meet demand • The ability for businesses, schools, and child care facilities to support physical distancing • The ability to determine when to re-institute certain measures, such as the stay-at-home orders, if necessary For more information on California’s COVID-19 response, visit www.covid19.ca.gov.

HE WORLD’S LARGEST ENVIRONMENTAL MOVEMENT, EARTH DAY celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and although we are limited to our homes, The Community Environmental Council (CEC) will commemorate this milestone by hosting #TogetherWeEarthrise Earth Day Live Festival. Dedicated to inspiration, community building, and climate action, the livestream event begins at noon on Wednesday, April 22nd and will be available to view at www.SBEarthDay.org. “For the first time in 20 years, we aren’t holding a live Earth Day festival, but our community stands strong – amazing artists, youth activists, and esteemed environmentalists are joining us to bring people together,” shared Kathi King, Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival Director. “Like us, they are committed to the idea that, even though we can’t gather in person, we can take collective action to lessen our impact on the Earth.” The online event will be the only Santa Barbara Earth Day celebration this year, as the public festival (previously rescheduled to July) has now been canceled for 2020 due to concerns that social distancing may be extended. Former Vice Featured music performers include Kenny President Al Gore Loggins, Glen Phillips, Zack Gill, Tina Schlieske, and Michael McDonald, along with poetry performances by Sojourner Kincaid Rolle and San Marcos High School senior Madai Quevedo. Featured speakers include Former Vice President Al Gore, actor Jeff Bridges, and past Earth Day Environmental Heroes Bill McKibben, Florencia Ramirez, and U.S. Congressman Salud Carbajal. Local media favorites John Palminteri, Alys Martinez, Lin Aubuchon, and Tracy Lehr, along with KJEE DJ’s, will be virtual ‘emcees.’ The 2020 #TogetherWeEarthrise Earth Day Live Festival – which is For the first time in 20 years, free to stream we aren’t holding a live – honors the 50th anniversary of the Earth Day festival, but our creation of Earth community stands strong Day, a designation – amazing artists, youth inspired by Santa Barbara’s environmental activism in activists, and esteemed environmentalists are joining response to the 1969 oil spill. us to bring people together. The date also Kathi King marks the 50th SB Earth Day Festival Director anniversary of the Community Environmental, festival creator and organizer. The #TogetherWeEarthrise theme is in conjunction with the international Earth Day Network’s campaign to bring communities together during the coronavirus crisis. “Over the past month, we’ve shown how we can come together as a society, acknowledge our Jeff Bridges interconnectedness, and take necessary, if painful, steps to protect ourselves against this virus. These are lessons we can apply to protecting the health and well-being of all people against the existential threats of a dangerously warming climate,” CEC’s CEO Sigrid Wright commented. In addition to watching the virtual festival, the community can participate in the week leading up to the festival by: • Getting creative with the Earthrise photo through art, poetry, and music, and sharing pictures and videos of this work on social media using the hashtags #TogetherWeEarthrise, #CECSB, and #SBEARTHDAY. These photos and videos will be included in the online event. • Support earth-friendly businesses, restaurants, and bars offering #SBEarthDaySpecial items from April 15th to 24th.

Dedicado a la inspiración, la construcción de la comunidad y la acción climática, el evento de transmisión en vivo comienza al mediodía del miércoles, 22 de abril y estará disponible para ver en www.SBEarthDay.org. “Por primera vez en 20 años, no estamos celebrando un festival del Día de la Tierra en persona, pero nuestra comunidad se mantiene firme – artistas increíbles, activistas juveniles y ambientalistas respetados se unen a nosotros para unir a las personas,” compartió Kathi King, Directora del Festival del Día de la Tierra de Santa Barbara. “Al igual que nosotros, están comprometidos con la idea de que, aunque no podamos reunirnos en persona, podemos tomar medidas colectivas para disminuir nuestro impacto en la Tierra.” El evento en línea será la única celebración del Día de la Tierra Kenny Loggins en Santa Barbara este año, ya que el festival público (previamente reprogramado para julio) se ha cancelado para este año (2020) debido a la preocupación de que se pueda extender la orden del distanciamiento social. Artistas musicales destacados incluyen a Kenny Loggins, Glen Phillips, Zack Gill, Tina Schlieske y Michael McDonald, junto con presentaciones de poesía de Sojourner Kincaid Rolle y Madai Quevedo, una estudiante de último año de la preparatoria San Marcos.

El Festival en vivo del Día de la Tierra 2020 #TogetherWeEarthrise, que será transmitido gratis, honra el 50 aniversario de la creación del Día de la Tierra, una designación inspirada en el activismo ambiental de Santa Barbara en respuesta al derrame de petróleo de 1969.

Harbor VOICE Another View... By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE


Photos by Sigrid Toye

T’S BEEN ALMOST A MONTH OF SOCIAL DISTANCING here in Santa Barbara! Looking out my windows in the morning I’m viewing ‘My World’, at least for the time being – certainly not bad, but still a confinement of sorts. Other than pick ups for take out food, cautious trips to the grocery stores complete with mask and occasional gloves … that’s it! A drive along Cabrillo Boulevard along the waterfront in the direction of the harbor on a sunny Spring day is a special treat! Which is what happened last weekend when I was treated to a view of the harbor from another vantage point. I was taken for a ride on my husband’s sailboat for another view of the harbor, Stearns Wharf, the endless shoreline, the Channel Islands, and the distant oil rigs. This familiar sight seemed entirely new from the ocean beyond the breakwater. All I could say on that beautiful Saturday was “Wow! What a view!” Perhaps these days of confinement have renewed my appreciation for the beauty of the California coastline and given me a second set of eyes to see what Mother Nature gifts to those of us who live on the land. On the Bell Buoy just outside the harbor, the seals were sunning themselves with a few circling in the water hoping to make it through Security to find a place in the sunshine near the sound of the bell. Looking down, I realized that the view from the surface was only a small portion of what actually exists below. Thousands of species of animals reside beneath the waves, some who occasionally visit the sunlight, but most are at home in the darkness below. Whether swimming, on the floor of the ocean, attached to the pilings of the pier and the oil rigs offshore, they thrive in an environment all their own. This subject, believe it or not, brings me to how I pass some of the time while being confined: the tidal wave of informational videos available online. The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum’s website has a huge selection of videos of previous and very popular lectures having to do with ocean related information and education. A video I’d like to suggest to you is one that specifically addresses the future of the marine environment below the surface of the Santa Barbara Channel titled Alternative Uses of the Oil Platforms. This lecture took place in November of 2019 in advance of the planned decommissioning of the oil rigs. This series of presentations addresses the proposed use of the decommissioned platforms with speakers representing the various options available. The purpose was to inform the public about the alternative uses up for consideration and discussion. Proposals ranged from converting the platforms into marine life reefs or protected areas, renewable energy (wind or wave power), and fishing reefs to aquaculture facilities. A great deal of time was spent on the underwater environment and how the rigs provide a rich habitat for a variety of species that make their home on the pilings. Beautiful underwater photography projected on the big screen at the Maritime Museum depicted the colorful variety of marine life under the surface and how its existence benefits the overall environment of the Santa Barbara Channel. The presenters included organizations such as the Ocean Foresters, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, and the Seaworld Research Institute. Why not while away some of those long hours at home on the Maritime Museum’s website viewing this awesome, educational video? Not only is it an eye opener about our marine environment, but it involves the decommissioning of the oil rigs that, in time, will impact our entire community. While there, feel free to enjoy the others too! https://sbmm.org/lectures Happy viewing!

Marymount Postpones Annual Auction to Protect Community From COVID-19


N KEEPING WITH PUBLIC HEALTH EXPERTS ADVICE to cancel gatherings in order to limit the spread of COVID-19, Marymount recently postponed their 42nd annual auction. The event, set to be held at The Montecito Club on March 14th, is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the non-profit private school. As a small school, Marymount relies on the annual generosity of the community to support its unique programs and activities as well as creating financial support for families choosing Marymount. Andrea McFarling, Director of Development; Alex Dunn, Assoc. “The vital support that is Director of Development; and Tina Wood, Auction Chair. generated from our annual auction provides tremendous support to Marymount students and families as well as our generous tuition assistance program we include in our annual operating budget each year,” said Christina Broderick, Marymount head of school. “Although it was tough not to see all the hard work come together for the community to participate in and enjoy, we are hopeful to be able to gather remotely or in person in support of our school, students and families.” “We are so grateful to the leadership, creativity, and generosity of more than 50 Marymount volunteers who worked diligently to bring our annual signature fundraiser to life,” Broderick said. Many top donors and sponsors of the school enthusiastically contributed auction items and funds in order to create the event. These sponsors included local family businesses such as the new seaside Asian restaurant Oku, Italian Pottery Outlet, and Dioji K-9 Resort & Athletic Club. Under the current economic circumstance, these businesses could certainly use support as well. “We are confident in the loyalty and love of our Marymount friends and families to see us through this challenging time, and we invite anyone interested in supporting and learning more about Marymount to reach out through our website,” Broderick said. For more information, email info@marymountsb.org or call 805-569-1811 ext. 131.

HERE WERE LOTS OF SMILES AS WORKERS LEFT KARL STORZ IMAGING IN GOLETA RECENTLY, when they were on the receiving end of a surprise wine giveaway. Karl Storz manufactures endoscopy equipment used to examine the respiratory systems of medical patients, including those with COVID-19. The company falls under the list of essential critical infrastructure sectors, which allows employees to operate at the workplace during the crisis. While Karl Storz Goleta has taken dozens of measures to reduce transmission of the virus including directing 300 of the 400 employees to work at home, they wanted to look out for those still working at the facility. In addition to hiring a dedicated person to continually disinfect common area touch points, spreading out tables and chairs in the breakrooms, staggering lunch breaks, and providing masks, for the 100+ Karl Storz assembly employees and support staff who have been going to work every day, company president and general manager Miles Hartfeld surprised them with a bottle of wine. Hartfeld’s fiancée, winemaker Gretchen Lieff, who donated the La Lieff wine, was on hand. “We took great care to maintain the appropriate social distancing during the distribution,” said Hartfeld. Workers lined up outside the building entrance, carefully separated by blue tape lines, in order to maintain a minimum of six foot spacing, before individually picking up their bottle from the table and heading home. “These workers are on the front lines. The medical equipment we produce here at this Goleta Miles Hartfeld, Gretchen Lieff, and facility plays a life-saving role in our battle against Jose Vazquez this global pandemic,” Hartfeld shared as the workers left for the day, waving thank you from a safe distance.

Someone’s In The Kitchen!

ANTA BARBARA, YOUR RESTAURANTS NEED YOU! Many of them have remained open through this dreadful COVID-19 crisis. They want to be here for the community. They want to be here for you. And they want to be here for their employees, too. Because they know that if they can’t keep that wonderful crew together through this tough time… your favorite restaurant might not be there when this the world opens back up for business as usual. So, it is time to support them! Everything is To Go these days. Almost everybody has a website with their special menus and special offers. Many restaurants have arrangements with delivery services. All can do pick-up orders, and many have extra discounts if you pick it up yourself. (Wouldn’t you love to have a reason to get out of the house for just a little while?) Yes, they are all working with skeleton crews. Yes, they are making it up as they go along. Yes, they may not always pick up the phone immediately. Yes, they aren’t open the usual hours. But, they are doing everything that they can in this strange new world, so please cut them just a little slack. Santa Barbara, here are some of our favorite restaurants in town that are doing something for you! Put down that spatula! Hit the website; or pick up the phone. You can even run down to McDonald’s, Taco Bell, or Jack In The Box on the way to pick up some comfort food to keep the kids happy. They need their old favorites, too.

The Andersen’s The Andersen’s is doing a limited menu. That keeps it simple. But, every To Go order off of the Hygge menu comes with a complimentary bottle of wine.

A Visit to James Beard's Kitchen It looked different than mine!


By Beverley Jackson, Special to VOICE

OST OF US ARE SPENDING MORE TIME IN THE KITCHEN PRESENTLY. I suddenly looked around mine, and began thinking about why it doesn't look like Julia Childs Cambridge kitchen. For one thing, mine isn't famous. Julia's is world famous and now that it is on permanent display in Washington, DC at the Smithsonian Institute, everyone can see it. Deep in thought about kitchens, smoke filled my kitchen and I realized I had a topic for my next column. I came to in time so that eight handsome men from the San Ysidro Fire Station One didn't have to join me in the kitchen! But I'm really going to talk about James Beard's New York kitchen. Born in Portland, Oregon, when he was about two years old he remembers going to a food exhibition. And what a great first cuisine memory The late Bill Wilcox and James Beard at a dinner Bill hosted for his guests at his historic for James Beard – watching Triscuits and shredded wheat biscuits being made. Well I guess a Julia Child Montecito mansion French soufflé wouldn't hold the same attraction for a two year old. Although when he lived in Paris in the 1920s his tastes had changed. In 1955 he established The James Beard Cooking School based on honestly prepared fresh wholesome American ingredients. James came into my life when he was a very famous chef, teacher, and author of some very successful cook books. I was in New York for several weeks when my friend Mary Homi asked, "Would you like to go to a luncheon at James Beard's on Tuesday?" You know what my answer was! So the following Tuesday, Mary and I were in a Yellow Cab heading to Greenwich Village for James' home. We were at the right address, but I was surprised to see he lived across the street from a major hospital and next door to a Town and Country school. Once inside, I was completely captivated by the wallpaper covering the hall walls. It was black etched pineapples and leaves on white background. I caught a glimpse of the kitchen as we climbed the stairs to meet the guest of honor, English writer Jane Grigson whose cookbook was titled, Jane Grigson's Fruit Book. Right away, his collection of Chinese ancestor paintings on glass and blue and white china collection that caught my attention. There were interesting items from the Orient scattered g books at a James Beard signin n in 1981. throughout the house. ta at street fair in Manh use is Ho From the drawing room area a balcony looks out onto e lag Vil ich nw His Gree the James Beard a glorious small New York garden and down into a dining now the home of location terrace that is part of the gigantic glassed-in area which Foundation and the rs, and ne din ts, en ev ny ma of looks out to the garden and building beyond. Some of r. no ho his in ms educational progra the guests dined at small round tables in this area. An example of his sense of humor, two large muse statues carved from wood stood between the dining area and the glass wall. Jim had tucked a huge elephant garlic bulb and stem in the arms of one of the statues. Now for his kitchen, which was (and still is) used for teaching. At the center was a large u-shaped counter with cooking burners on either side. There were walls of glasses, a bar area, and a wine storage area. A fine collection of antique copper molds and pots hung on one wall. Refrigerators were hidden behind chrome doors. The gigantic baking ovens were also hidden. Luncheon was served buffet style from the counters between the cooking burners. A huge silver punch bowl held many bottles of white wine on ice and bowls of salad were also set there. James checking out Bill's antique globe Trays holding melon wrapped in prosciutto were passed. There was a scallop ceviche made from a recipe in Jane's latest book as well as chicken salad. We talked about a very elegant dinner party the late Bill Wilcox hosted for Jim when he last visited him in Santa Barbara. But that's another whole column, not kitchens.

HE COMMUNITY OF SANTA BARBARA AND THE COMMUNITY OF THE WORLD has been called into action by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our city, our lives, our ways of doing business, our families will never be able to return to their old normals. But we will move forward now by Sheltering in Place... Later, by re-emerging with a new sense of the importance of everyone working together, to support each other and help everyone evolve into people and businesses prepared to live in a world where pandemics are part of everyone’s experience. The response of every single person is and will be integral to the health of our community. VOICE Magazine will continue to support the people and non-profits, the businesses and government agencies working on the front lines by providing important public information, business and personal news to sustain community life. We need your help. Every community needs channels of communication which are open and free to the public. For the past 26 years VOICE Magazine (AKA CASA Magazine) has remained free to Santa Barbara residents, both in print and digitally. We have never put up a pay wall to our digital edition or website. With your continued support via advertising and contributions this model of community journalism will go forward into the future. Journalism is evolving, though. Over 50 percent of local news sources have disappeared since 1991 - more since the pandemic has shuttered businesses. In our community we have seen many loved media outlets come and go. We’ve been blessed that while providing local service, we have managed to outlive many of them. VOICE Magazine has survived because of its advertisers, readers, and its hard working staff that put in countless hours to support a diverse community that believes in being inclusive. We thank-you, each and every one of you! At this moment, Santa Barbara is facing COVID-19; major economic upheaval including thousands of lay-offs; water, housing, and homeless issues; yet at the same time, the need to become a more cohesive caring community is making local reporting more essential than ever. With your help, VOICE Magazine will continue to advocate for a stronger and healthier community. We hope you will consider a targeted contribution in support of this nearly 27 year old project. Consider: • Contributing funds for more Spanish and Bilingual Articles... up to $10,000 is needed. • Contributing funds to expand local Environmental Coverage... up to $25,000 is needed. • Contributing funds for VOICE Magazine to transition into a non-profit News center...$5,000 needed.

Please consider making a contribution today. VOICE Magazine: 924 Anacapa Street, suite B1-F; Santa Barbara, Ca. 93101 Phone: 805-965-6448 • email: publisher@voicesb.com

Cottage Begins Using First PAPR Face Shields Produced Locally By Maria Zate, Cottage Health


ANTA BARBARA COTTAGE HOSPITAL MEDICAL STAFF who are caring for COVID-19 patients are now able to use the first face shields produced in collaboration with engineers from UCSB and local companies. A PAPR is the recommended safety device for the protection of each caregiver in the room for all aerosolizing procedures. This includes all intubations, extubations, bronchoscopies or other procedures that are invasive to the airway. With COVID-19, these aerosolizing procedures pose the highest risk for Cottage clinicians. The PAPR has a fan in the helmet portion that pulls air from the room and runs it through a HEPA filter to remove more than 99 percent of airborne pathogens, thus protecting the caregiver. The design of the PAPR face shield is an intricate process as it requires a rigid plastic face shield attached to a silicone gasket under the chin to allow the shield to fit close to the head. The adhesive must hold the pieces together without perforating the protective shielding qualities of both materials. Cottage clinicians worked with a coalition of local entities to create the face shields: Eric McFarland, MD, PhD and a Chemical Engineering professor at UCSB is a former Emergency Department physician at Cottage; Matt Silva of Ventura, Implantech; and local engineer and entrepreneur Ray Karam. “This has been an amazing collaboration and we are very thankful to our partners for their dedication and hard work,” said Lisa Moore, Vice President of Clinical Services at Cottage Health. “The new face shields will allow our clinical teams to safely perform procedures using the industry’s best practices.” To date, Cottage has received 188 face shields to protect medical staff, and 800 additional face shields are expected by April 20th.

EW YORK GOVERNOR ANDREW CUOMO is sounding like President Roosevelt when he intones, “It’s not about me, it’s about we,” at his daily morning COVID-19 press conferences. President Roosevelt most famously said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” in his first inaugural address at the beginning of the Great Depression. Roosevelt was telling us we could conquer the Great Depression if we conquered our fears and came together to fight economic collapse. We could be entering another such depression, though this downturn will probably be much shorter. The March 8.7 percent plunge in U.S. retail sales is the first major indication of the effects of the business shutdown and shelter-in-place mandates. The severest part of the oncoming recession could last only a matter of months if we listen to the health care experts and do the testing and contact tracing required to prevent a further spread of the novel coronavirus in all 50 states. But the abrupt shutdown of businesses with consumers unable to shop outside of buying necessities will cause a horrific decline in economic growth—on the order of three to six percent, according to the IMF, depending on how closely Americans follow the stay-at-home recommendations. And there are more pessimistic scenarios. For instance, if the pandemic lasts into 2021, it could reduce the level of global GDP by eight percent compared with the baseline, said Gita Gopinath, the IMF’s top economist. Retail sales sank 27 percent at auto dealers and 17 percent at gas stations, two of the biggest segments of the retail industry, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Fewer people are buying cars with millions of Americans losing their jobs and millions more worrying about their next paycheck. “Americans also drove less as an economic shutdown spread across the country, exacerbating already steep price declines caused by a global price war that has cut the cost of crude oil by two-thirds in just a few months,” said MarketWatch’s Greg Robb, commenting on the retail sales figures. It may console us a bit that the 1930s were a much different time. The Great Depression only became ‘Great’ because it lasted ten years over two successive recessions, until the beginning of World War II. This COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t have to be a repeat if we keep the necessary safeguards in place long enough to prevent successive recurrences of the pandemic. Governor Cuomo’s words could end up being historically significant in helping to inspire Americans, for they signal what Americans must conquer in order to work together and ignore political affiliations and ethnic divisions. It takes a certain kind of selflessness that many are showing in banding together to supplement the shortage of PPE masks and clothing, while states work together to supply each other with medical equipment, including scarce ventilators. Maybe this worldwide pandemic will bring us out of the Age of Narcissism, the ‘me first’ attitude that has been the byword for the fragmentation of the U.S. into blue states and red states, white vs. brown skins, and native-born vs. immigrant divisions. President Roosevelt in the 1932 speech also said, “We now realize as we have never realized before our interdependence on each other; that we can not merely take, but we must give as well; that if we are to go forward, we must move as a trained and loyal army willing to sacrifice for the good of a common discipline, because without such discipline no progress is made, no leadership becomes effective.” Simply put, we can no longer think of just ‘me’, if we want to survive this pandemic and prevent another Great Depression.

A Virtual Delight UCSB’sArt,Design&ArchitectureMuseumtakesitsgalleriesonline duringthecoronaviruslockdown~ www.museum.ucsb.edu/exhibitions/online By Jim Logan / The UC Santa Barbara Current

HAT DOES A WORLD-CLASS REPOSITORY OF FINE ART AND MORE THAN A MILLION ARCHITECTURAL DRAWINGS do when it’s forced to shut its doors? It brings its collections and exhibits to the public. UC Santa Barbara’s Art, Design & Architecture Museum, shuttered amid the coronavirus pandemic, has brought its Silvia Perea exhibitions online. “The museum has a longestablished online trajectory, but the present lockdown has given us the opportunity to think about our digital domain in a more intentional and strategic manner,” said Silvia Perea, acting director of the museum and curator of architecture and design. “Traditionally,” she added, “we have thought of our raison d’être as primarily associated with what happened in the galleries — our audiences’ visitation, engagement with exhibitions, provision of feedback, Hostile Terrain 94,onvirtualexhibitattheAD&A Museum,bearswitnesstotheplightofmigrants. participation in events. The current

situation has shifted the perception of our purpose from interacting physically to virtually. In this regard, we are imagining ways of complementing our online offerings with participatory experiences.” Visitors to the museum’s website can expect small doses of new, carefully curated content, Perea said, with a focus on quality over quantity while ensuring a diversity of offerings. “So far,” she noted, “we have transformed the exhibitions that were on view in our galleries into online portals as a means to maintain their accessibility during their respective planned cycles. These exhibitions will soon feature videos from artists represented in them. The museum has also launched two contests, “ADA in Space” for kids and “Fables in Labels” for adults. In the first, artists aged three to eleven are invited to draw what they think life on another planet would be like. The ten best — judged by a curator — will be featured in an exhibition

Love Art? Hate COVID-19?


By Kerry Methner,PhD/VOICE

REATIVITY AND HEART ARE EMERGING AS LOCALS RESPOND TO THE CHALLENGES OF THIS TIME... and artists and gallerists can be especially adept. At Silo118, Bonnie Rubenstein has pitched an online benefit as the perfect response. “I was feeling a bit helpless while all this panic was swirling around. I’m an old activist harking back to the 60s and wanted to help out in some capacity, but I’m isolated,” she recalled. “I started thinking about raising funds for an organization working to help people who have lost jobs, have no money to pay for food or rent. Then I quickly learned that some of Silo118 artists may be in that same situation, so it all clicked together in one great AHA moment - I could try to help them while raising money for important organizations. I truly have loved working on this campaign and hopefully we can do some good. I want to expand it and keep it going for as long as it is needed.” The gallery will be supporting their artists and organizations that deliver needed services and goods to affected communities, providing food, shelter, and supplies for people out of work and to health Calafia, bronze,by workers on the front lines of caring for Enrique Avilez the very sick. Artists agreed to reduce the price of their art and donate a good percentage of the sale to selected non-profits. The result is an online exhibition of beautiful works for everyone to view and that is offered to buyers to at a fraction of their usual prices. Discounts average between 30 to 60 percent. Many pieces are under $500.

Details for both contests are on the AD&AM website. In addition, Perea said, the museum is enriching the online records of its Fine Art and Architecture and Design Collections. It’s also planning the months ahead to ensure that its upcoming exhibitions and programs can be enjoyed remotely. Not surprisingly, the move to the digital realm is a work in progress, one that has museum staff working to put together future exhibitions. “Even though we have a website and a sound presence on social media, we feel we are in the infancy of what we dream of doing,” Perea explained. “By now, we are actively analyzing online visitation data, and collecting feedback from the museum’s audience and team. In this regard, we are having regular brainstorming meetings to come up with initiatives that, in responding to data analysis, can be inspiring and useful for both our audiences and the museum.” For Perea and the museum staff, taking exhibitions online is more than giving the public another distraction in challenging times. “In the long-gone past,” she said, “to curate meant to ‘heal the ailments or passions of the soul.’ If we can’t go that far, we hope that the art we present through our website and social media reconnects us with our human condition in this moment of global isolation and segregation.” “The thriving capacity that our community has demonstrated in these unexpected and challenging circumstances sets an inspiring example for all of us at the AD&A Museum,” Perea continued. “As we keep on working on our virtual interface, we welcome everyone’s comments, ideas, and feedback, and remain ‘on the line’ for anything we can PrintedwithpermissionofUCSBOfficeof assist with.”

The Power of Light Ultraviolet LEDs prove effective in eliminating coronavirus from surfaces and, potentially, air and water By Sonia Fernandez / The UC Santa Barbara Current


S COVID-19 CONTINUES TO RAVAGE GLOBAL POPULATIONS, the world is singularly focused on finding ways to battle the novel coronavirus. That includes UC Santa Barbara’s Solid State Lighting & Energy Electronics Center (SSLEEC) and member companies. Researchers there are developing ultraviolet LEDs that have the ability to decontaminate surfaces — and potentially air and water — that have come in contact with the SARSCoV-2 virus. “One major application is in medical situations — the disinfection of personal protective equipment, surfaces, floors, within the HVAC systems, et cetera,” said materials doctoral researcher Christian Zollner, whose work centers on advancing deep ultraviolet light LED technology for sanitation and purification purposes. He added that a small market already exists for UV-C disinfection products in medical contexts. Indeed, much attention of late has turned to the power of ultraviolet light to inactivate the novel coronavirus. As a technology, ultraviolet light disinfection has been around for a while. And while practical, large-scale efficacy against the spread of SARS-CoV-2 has yet to be shown, UV light shows a lot of promise: SSLEEC member company Seoul Semiconductor in early April reported a “99.9% sterilization of coronavirus (COVID-19) in 30 seconds” with their UV LED products. Their technology currently is being adopted for automotive use, in UV LED lamps that sterilize the interior of unoccupied vehicles. It’s worth noting that not all UV wavelengths are alike. UV-A and UV-B — the types we get a lot of here on Earth courtesy of the Sun — have important uses, but the rare UV-C is the ultraviolet light of choice for purifying air and water and for inactivating microbes. These can be generated here only via man-made processes. “UV-C light in the 260 – 285 nm range most relevant for current disinfection technologies is also harmful to human skin, so for now it is mostly used in applications where no one is present at the time of disinfection,” Zollner said. In fact, the World Health Organization warns against using ultraviolet disinfection lamps to sanitize hands or other areas of the skin — even brief exposure to UV-C light can cause burns and eye damage. Before the COVID-19 pandemic gained global momentum, materials scientists at SSLEEC were already at work advancing UV-C LED technology. This area of the electromagnetic spectrum is a relatively new frontier for solid-state lighting; UV-C light is more commonly generated via mercury vapor lamps and, according to Zollner, “many technological

advances are needed for the UV LED to reach its potential in terms of efficiency, cost, reliability, and lifetime.” In a letter published in the journal ACS Photonics, the researchers reported a more elegant method for fabricating high-quality deepultraviolet (UV-C) LEDs that involves depositing a film of the semiconductor alloy aluminum gallium nitride (AlGaN) on a substrate of silicon carbide (SiC) — a departure from the more widely used sapphire substrate. According to Zollner, using silicon carbide as a substrate allows for more efficient and cost-effective growth of high-quality UV-C semiconductor material than using sapphire. This, he explained, is due to how closely the materials’ atomic structures match up. “As a general rule of thumb, the more structurally similar (in terms of atomic crystal structure) the substrate and the film are to each other, the easier it is to achieve high material quality,” he said. The better the quality, the better the LED’s efficiency and performance. Sapphire is dissimilar structurally, and producing material without flaws and misalignments often requires complicated additional steps. Silicon carbide is not a perfect match, Zollner said, but it enables a high quality without the need for costly, additional methods. In addition, silicon carbide is far less expensive than the “ideal” aluminum nitride substrate, making it more mass productionfriendly, according to Zollner. Portable, fast-acting water disinfection was among the primary applications the researchers had in mind as they were developing their UV-C LED technology; the diodes’ durability, reliability, and small form factor would be a game changer in less developed areas of the world where clean water is not available. The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has added another dimension. As the world races to find vaccines, therapies, and cures for the disease, disinfection, decontamination, and isolation are the few weapons we have to defend ourselves, and the solutions will need to be deployed worldwide. In addition to UV-C for water sanitation purposes, UV-C light could be integrated into systems that turn on when no one is present, Zollner said. “This would provide a low-cost, chemical-free, and convenient way to sanitize public, retail, personal, and medical spaces,” he said. For the moment, however, it’s a game of patience, as Zollner and colleagues wait out the pandemic. Research at UC Santa Barbara has slowed to a trickle to minimize person-to-person contact. “Our next steps, once research activities resume at UCSB, is to continue our work on improving our AlGaN/SiC platform to hopefully produce the world’s most efficient UV-C light emitters,” he said. Other research contributors include Burhan K. SaifAddin (lead author), Shuji Nakamura, Steven P. DenBaars, James S. Speck, Abdullah S. Almogbel, Bastien Bonef, Michael Iza, and Feng Wu, all from SSLEEC and/or the Department of Materials at UC Santa Barbara. Photo Courtesy of UCSB
