So Cal Focus with Thomas D. Elias New EPA Threat to State’s Smog Standards


alifornians interested in keeping this state’s toughest-in-the-world standards for automotive pollution heaved a sigh of relief when the federal Environmental Protection Agency in early August reversed an earlier decision to delay imposition of new national ozone standards for at least a year. That move came after California and 15 other states sued to force EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to back down, and he did before his action could take hold. Pruitt’s reaction also gave rise to optimism among defenders of several other California laws threatened by a variety of officials named by President Trump. But now it seems such optimism may have been premature. For only weeks after his turnabout on new ozone limits mandated under ex-President Barack Obama, Pruitt began a new process that could greatly increase automotive smog. He opened a 45-day public comment period on a proposed rewrite of standards for carbon emissions and other kinds of greenhouse gases emitted by cars and trucks, aiming to ease the pollution-controlling tasks of both carmakers and oil companies. Pruitt, the former attorney general of Oklahoma, frequently sided in his prior job with oil companies and others in lawsuits aiming to eliminate some EPA rules. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra is now seeking documents in an effort to determine whether Pruitt had actual conflicts of interest in several actions he’s lately taken that achieve goals of the lawsuits he formerly pursued against his current agency. “We are moving forward with an open and robust review of emissions standards,” Pruitt said as he began the public comment period during which anyone can react to proposed changes. The effect of the changes Pruitt seeks in corporate average fuel economy standards (often called CAFÉ standards) would cause new emissions produced in the other 49 states to far overbalance cutbacks in greenhouse gases made under California rules. It would mark a return to pre-2000s days when there were major differences between cars sold in California and what were known as “49-state cars.” Gradually, as other states adopted California’s rules, many of those differences had disappeared before Pruitt took over. He has backed off early efforts to eliminate the California waiver provisions of the federal Clean Air Act, the law that has let this state maintain tougher pollution standards than the rest of America since then-President Richard Nixon signed it 47 years ago. Current federal standards adopted under Obama created an emphasis on gas/electric hybrids and electric- and hydrogenpowered cars. Not surprisingly, the auto industry likes Pruitt’s latest move, which could result in revoking or greatly revising today’s standards everywhere but in California. Said Mitch Bainwol, head of the Auto Alliance group of carmakers, “The administration is fulfilling its commitment to reinstate midterm evaluation of future fuel economy and greenhouse gas standards.” Both environmental and consumer advocacy groups blasted the EPA action. “EPA is bringing back questions that have already been asked and answered,” said a statement from Consumers Union, parent of the Consumer Reports magazine. The group said polls show 90 percent of Americans want even better fuel efficiency than offered by today’s new cars. A scaling back of today’s rules would place America far behind several other countries in seeking reduced dependency on oil and gasoline. Germany and France, for example, have laws that will ban all sales of gas-powered cars within the next two to three decades. A anti-smog rollback could also threaten California-based electric car companies like Tesla and Faraday, as well as making white elephants of the statewide string of hydrogen refueling stations now being partially financed by gasoline taxes via the state Energy Commission. It all creates a very uncertain future for California’s smog standards, which have dramatically improved the state’s air quality over the last half century. If the EPA attempts to backtrack on the existing standards, it’s almost certain California and many other states would sue to block the move. But with a U.S. Supreme Court dominated by conservative Republicans, there’s a strong possibility the Trump administration would prevail.

The Healthy Geezer with Fred Cietti Symptoms Associated with Diabetes


. I’ve been very hungry recently.


Someone told me that this is a symptom for diabetes. Is that true?

. An intense hunger is one diabetes

symptom. Here are others: frequent urination, strong thirst, fatigue, unintended weight loss, slow-healing sores, dry and itchy skin, numbness or tingling in your feet, and blurred vision. However, some people with diabetes do not have symptoms. Diabetes mellitus is a group of diseases characterized by high levels of blood sugar. Diabetes can create serious health problems, but diabetics can control the disease. If you have diabetes, your body can’t produce insulin or use it properly. Insulin is a hormone that helps control the sugar in your blood. Insulin is made by the pancreas, a large organ behind the stomach. Your body converts most of the food you eat into a form of sugar called glucose, which is our main source of energy. If your body does not make enough insulin or the insulin doesn’t work the way it should, glucose can’t get into your cells and remains in your blood. High levels of glucose in the blood damage nerves and blood vessels. This can lead to complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness, and lower-limb amputation. More than 18 million Americans have diabetes. About 11 million people 65 years or older suffer from the disease. A small percentage of diabetics have type 1 diabetes, which usually occurs in people under age 30. Diabetics with this form of the disease can not produce insulin. About 90 percent of Americans with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. It is most common in adults over age 40, and the risk of getting it increases with age. With this form of diabetes, the body does not always produce enough insulin or does not use insulin efficiently. Being overweight and inactive increases the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be prevented in people who are at an increased risk or have pre-diabetes, a condition in which glucose levels are higher than normal but not yet high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes. People with pre-diabetes are more likely to develop diabetes within 10 years and are also more likely to have a heart attack or stroke. A recent study showed that people with pre-diabetes can sharply lower their chances of developing the disease through modest weight loss with diet and exercise. That same study showed that changes in diet and exercise were especially effective in curbing the development of diabetes in older people. In fact, the development of diabetes dropped by 71 percent in adults 60 and older who were enrolled in the study. Because type 2 diabetes is more common in older people, especially in people who are overweight, doctors recommend that anyone 45 years of age or older be tested for diabetes.

Governor Brown Announces Precision Medicine Advisory Committee SACRAMENTO — Continuing the state’s efforts to use advanced computing and technology to better understand, treat and prevent disease, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. established the Governor’s Advisory Committee on Precision Medicine, Thursday Oct. 5. “California is a world leader in medicine and technology. This committee of experts will help us think through how precision medicine can improve health and health care for Californians,” said Governor Brown. Precision medicine aims to use data-driven tools and analysis to develop new diagnostics, therapies and insights into health and disease. Governor Brown announced the California Initiative to Advance Precision Medicine (CIAPM) in April 2015 as the first-in-the-nation, state-level effort to fund focused precision medicine projects to improve care and treatment for specific diseases. Since the initial launch, CIAPM has supported several demonstration projects, led by California’s renowned academic and medical institutions, which span the disease spectrum –- from childhood cancer to traumatic brain injury, Multiple Sclerosis and heart disease. To date, California has invested $13 million out of the total $23 million in allocated state funding for precision medicine. Private companies and foundations have also provided additional funding and donated in-kind support directly to the projects. The committee will advise the Governor’s Office on emerging precision medicine policy issues, such as data sharing and data privacy within and across technology platforms and tools; clinical utility of precision medicine approaches to care; patient and provider engagement and education; and economic impact and sustainability of precision medicine-based treatments. The committee will also provide recommendations on further actions the public and private sectors can take to integrate precision medicine into health care. The advisory committee members appointed by the Governor encompass the range of expertise necessary in precision medicine: biotechnology, technology, health systems, health disparities, population health, cancer, bioinformatics,

ethics, genomics and patient engagement.

Wisdom for

EVERYDAY LIFE The Promises of God

with Pastor Drew


Part XXV

reetings precious people, this week we continue our series entitled “The Promises of God”. As mentioned in part one of this series, there are but a few promises to all of mankind, the vast majority are to those who have become His children by adoption through faith in Jesus Christ and repentance from sin. Some may think this is not “fair”, that all of God’s promises should be to everyone. Well they are to everyone that will repent of sin and turn to Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sin. Think of this way, you are a parent, your children have your protection; love; provision; sacrifice; and will inherit what you have at your departure. Should others who are not your children or even those who hate you and your children be beneficiaries of what you have for your own children? Of course not, that would be absurd! Another of God’s wonderful promises is that of His being a refuge to us. Psalm 9:9-10 “Jehovah also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, Jehovah, have not forsaken those who seek You.” God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:2-3 Therefore we will not fear when the earth changes, and when mountains are slipping into the heart of the seas. Let its waters roar and foam; let the mountains shake with the swelling of it. Selah.” Hebrews 6:17-20 “In this way desiring to declare more fully to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, God interposed by an oath, so that by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us, which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters into that within the veil, where the Forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” Hebrews 4:14-16 “Since then we have a great High Priest who has passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we do not have a high priest who cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted just as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let us come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” A refuge is a place of safety, we today have wild life refuges which are a place where certain birds and animals can live and not be threatened by certain predators. For the follower of Christ, God and His promises are our refuge. This does not mean that we will always be able to escape the dangers associated with the life surrendered to Jesus but we can have peace and rest in the midst of any trial, difficulty, or suffering that may present itself at any given time. We see the Apostle Peter in the Book of Acts, after being arrested and threatened with execution was able to be sound asleep between 2 guards so that when an angle showed up to set him free, the angle had to shake him to awaken Peter. The Apostle Paul also experienced this place of refuge in some of the most trying times of his ministry. 2Corinthians 4:7-18 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us; in every way having been troubled, but not having been hemmed in; having been perplexed, but not utterly at a loss; having been persecuted, but not having been forsaken; having been thrown down, but not having been destroyed; always bearing about the dying of the Lord Jesus in the body, so that the life of Jesus also might be revealed in our body…. For this cause we do not faint; but though our outward man perishes, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For the lightness of our present affliction works out for us a far more excellent eternal weight of glory, we not considering the things which are seen, but the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are not lasting, but the things which are not seen are everlasting.”

SPORTS BEAT with Steve Dolan

SDSU’s Offensive Line Honored


an Diego State football’s offensive line has been named to the Joe Moore Award Mid-Season Honor Roll for its performance through six games this season. The Joe Moore Award Mid-Season Honor Roll includes units that display a high level of toughness, effort, teamwork, consistency, technique, and “finishing.” The Voting Subcommittee uses game film and coach submitted cut-ups on The DragonFly Division I Network as the primary OL Unit evaluation tool. Advanced OL data and statistics are provided by STATS LLC. Despite starting three underclassmen, SDSU’s offensive line has helped the Scarlet and Black average 222.8 rushing yards per game, which ranks 24th in FBS and fourth in the Mountain West. Additionally, the Aztecs have thrown just one interception (fifth nationally) and their four lost turnovers rank ninth in FBS. The group’s effort has paved the way for senior running back Rashaad Penny’s highly successful season. Penny is the nation’s leader in all-purpose yards per game (220.83) and he ranks third nationally with 165.5 rushing yards per game. The Aztecs are one of five programs from a Group of Five school (also No. 25 Navy, Western Michigan, New Mexico and Buffalo) and one of two from the Mountain West (also New Mexico) to appear on the Mid-Season Honor Roll. Ranked 19th in the latest AP poll and 18th in the Amway Coaches Poll, SDSU is off to its first 6-0 start since 1975. It has won eight consecutive games, and is 14-2 in its last 16 games and 27-3 in its last 30. The Aztecs (6-0, 2-0 MW) play host to Boise State (3-2, 1-0 MW) at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14 at SDCCU Stadium.

Dolan hosts a one-hour sports talk radio show Tuesdays from 6 to 7 p.m. on East County’s “The Mountain – 107.9 FM.” The show may also be heard on the Internet at
