For the Community, by the Community. (92¢ + tax included) Jr High Science Fair Goes Zooming To Deliver Awards

This year Julian Jr. High’s Science Fair was brought to an abrupt halt! As Jr. High students set up all their projects to be judged by the Julian High School’s FFA students the following Monday, we were getting word that no one would be back in school the following week. These students spent no less than 7 weeks of work researching their topics, testing their designs or hypotheses, typing a minimum of 8 page reports, and putting together their display boards. This is my second year hosting the science fair, and I can say the projects get better each year! I was really impressed at the process and learning as students took on the role of a scientist in a subject area that is 100% self guided. The science fair has changed since I was a kid and now includes 2 qualifying entry methods. One is the classic scientific method, where students wonder about a topic, ask questions, make a hypothesis and test it multiple times, while collecting results to come up with a conclusion that is backed up by data. The second type of project is an Engineer and Design section. These projects have students define a problem in the world, research the science behind it, come up with a solution, design and build a prototype, test it’s functionality, and then redesign as many times as needed until they are satisfied with the data results. We hosted an awards ceremony via Zoom to honor the students who won awards in both categories.

Welcome To Phase 2 - Selected Reopening With the easing of more restrictions in the statewide stayat-home order, retail and related manufacturing businesses in San Diego County could begin opening Friday, but only for delivery or curbside pickup. Retail and manufacturing businesses are being allowed to reopen because they represent a lower risk of spreading COVID-19. They include shops that sell books, shoes, clothing, music, jewelry and sporting goods among others. When businesses open their doors, they must do it safely. They are not allowed to have customers inside and must prepare and post a Safe Reopening Plan to ensure the safety of employees and the public. The plan also ensures proper sanitation, physical distancing and general business practices. Businesses should also review and refer to the state checklist for their specific industry, such as the Retailer guidance and checklist, when completing the County plan. “Businesses should make sure that the social distancing and face covering guidelines are being followed,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “These

guidelines remain in place to protect San Diegans from getting and spreading the virus.” Business owners needing clarification of the reopening guidelines can email questions to: COVID19BusinessQuestions@ sdcounty.ca.gov. The state announced new guidelines that would allow some counties to reopen at a faster rate. However, no large jurisdictions in California is expected to meet the new metrics, which include no COVID-19 deaths over a 14-day period. As a result, San Diego County’s reopening is expected to stay consistent with state guidance. COVID-19 Testing in San Diego The County’s Live Well Mobile Office will be offering COVID-19 testing in Southeastern San Diego on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Euclid Health Center, 292 Euclid Ave. An appointment through 2-1-1 is necessary, and slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. COVID-19 testing remains available at local hospitals, medical groups, some community clinics and private labs. The state also has three testing sites – in Escondido, El Cajon and Chula Vista – that are offering

free testing by appointment Monday through Friday. You can schedule an appointment online or by calling (888) 634-1123. Planning also is underway to deploy the County Library’s bookmobiles and other County vehicles for testing throughout the region. Stage 2: Lower-Risk Workplaces It allows curbside retail, including but not limited to: • Bookstores • Jewelry stores • Toy stores • Clothing stores • Shoe stores • Home and furnishing stores • Sporting goods stores • Antique stores • Music stores • Florists Note: this will be phased-in, starting first with curbside pickup and delivery only until further notice. Businesses need to complete the County’s Safe Reopening Plan, print and post it at their entrance. Businesses should also review and refer to the state checklist for their specific industry, such as the Retailer guidance and checklist, when completing the County’s Safe Reopening Plan.

Supply chains supporting the above businesses, in manufacting and logistical sectors, can also reopen. They should refer to their industry's guidance and checklists when completing their Safe Reopening Plan. Each business's plan may need to be updated and reposted when state guidance changes. The County will not require approval for this plan. Businesses with questions can email: COVID19BusinessQuestions@ sdcounty.ca.gov

Monday May 11th I will be having an employee meeting to update the employees on the changes and upgrades we have made to date. I am also going to be asking them which employees will be willing to come back to work so I can develop an updated work schedule. Monday, the signage required by the County will be ready to pick up. Night crawlers and essential bait will be ordered for pick up on Wednesday. We have ordered two card readers to help expedite the customers due to the size and limitations of our bait and tackle shop. Thursday May 14th, we will be giving orientation to the bait and tackle shop employees on the new register system we have recently purchased and start opening for business by the following weekend so we have our feet on the ground and the kinks ironed out by the following weekend… Memorial Day Weekend. We will take a limited fish plant from Mt. Lassen before Memorial Day weekend with an extended remittance time to help us get back on our feet. Required County paperwork on social distancing and sanitation has been filled out, The required County “Safe Reopening” (they disclosed it Friday night) paperwork is done, signage will be posted by Thursday the 14th. We are being required initially to only allow 50% of the parking and camping amenities that we have here to provide for social distancing… it’s been a long and dusty road, but we are getting there.

What Does Disinfecting For Reopening Look Like?

By Chet Pharies – Owner, Carpet Tech

This is the million-dollar question right now in communities across America. In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, businesses are weighing getting back to work with the health and safety of their employees and customers. More than ever, we are seeing and hearing the words cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting in the news and social media, and business owners and facility managers should understand the difference as they prepare for reopening safely. As a local company, we understand how volatile this economy is now, and how dire it is for all of us to get back to work. Carpet Tech provides residents and businesses with Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) cleaning, disinfecting, and remediation services. According to the CDC, cleaning is performed using a detergent, water, and agitation to remove germs from surfaces and objects. Cleaning does not kill bacteria, viruses, or fungi. Sanitizing is reducing contamination or bacteria to a safe level while disinfecting refers to killing germs on level while disinfecting refers to killing germs on contact. Although the CDC and OSHA have guidelines for keeping workplaces safe, deep cleaning and disinfecting hold different meanings to different industries. Many businesses have stepped up cleaning protocols per advice from public health officials. The most common steps taken by both businesses and individual households have been increasing the frequency of cleanings, using disinfectant products that federal officials say are effective for cleaning "hightouch" spots and making hand sanitizer readily available. We recommend businesses create and implement a routine corporate cleaning maintenance plan that best suits their facility and budget needs and one that follows regulatory guidelines. A plan may include weekly, monthly or quarterly professional disinfecting to ensure all surfaces and contents have been treated properly using EPA-approved chemicals and processes to combat bacteria, molds, and viruses, including coronavirus. A chlorine dioxide-generating product, like ProKure 1, is proven effective against use against SARS-CoV-2. Using electrostatic sprayers and foggers, IICRC technicians apply the disinfecting chemical to all surfaces and contents in the building. This process is safe and usually requires a two-hour kill and dry time. While disinfectants kill or inactivate germs on a surface, as soon as that surface is touched, it can be recontaminated. Research to date indicates that the coronavirus can live for hours to days depending on the type of surface. While frequent disinfecting is paramount, we know that it’s not practical for every business to have us disinfect weekly, so we suggest a chemical process that coats surfaces with a protective barrier to prevent the growth of microbes, protecting your home and facility long after initial disinfection is complete. process. Technicians apply the antimicrobial protection to all surfaces and contents in the building. This process is safe and usually requires a two-hour kill and dry time. The process uses EPA-approved antimicrobial spray that coats surfaces with a protective barrier to prevent the growth of microbes, adding protection after initial disinfection is complete. Just because a surface looks clean, doesn't mean it is. Bacteria, viruses, molds, and other harmful germs are invisible to the naked eye. We’ve invested in ATP Monitoring to measure and evaluate contaminants on a surface before and after cleaning and disinfection. For more information on disinfecting for Covid-19, or to get help developing a disinfecting protocol for your business, call Carpet Tech at 888-343-9650. Chet Pharies and his wife Melinda own and operate Carpet Tech, a Lubbock, Texas-based cleaning and restoration company. In the last 25 years, Pharies has grown Carpet Tech to honor his late brother Chad’s memory, and today has offices in Collin County, Lubbock, Amarillo, and the Permian Basin and Clovis, New Mexico.

Cigna, has a few simple steps to protect individuals and families from threats. • Never open email or attachments from unknown senders. Many scams occur when clicking on fraudulent links or attachments in emails. Sometimes these emails can look similar to those received from legitimate sources, such as a health insurer, making it difficult to notice the difference. Pay attention to details: does it look like other valid communications you’ve received? Is the sender email address correct? To check a link’s legitimacy, hover over the text to see where it will redirect. Also note, when communicating with health insurers online, it will likely be done through a secure email portal, which automatically encrypts (secures) emails and can only be accessed by signing in using a pre-determined password.

• Guard personal information. As a general rule, health insurers will never ask for credit card information or account passwords in an email. Report emails asking for this information to your health insurance company immediately. • Hang up and call back. Not all threats occur online. Be wary of phone calls from someone claiming to be your health insurance company asking for personal information. To confirm legitimacy, simply hang up and call the customer service phone number listed on the back of the insurance card. In most cases, if information or payment is needed, individuals will receive a letter in the mail, not a phone call. • Monitor texts and social media. Many use cell phones as a primary way to communicate, so it should be no surprise that cybercriminals are turning to continued on page 12

Monday, May 25 Memorial Day Holiday Mother's Day, based on families the neighborhood having small gatherings. Otherwise, I wouldn't know. My mom died in 1987, too young, 67, compared to the rest of her family. She was widowed at 32, the day my brother was born. She never remarried, so I brag about being raised by a single working mother. She should be bragged about. She raised the three of us kids by herself and in all modesty, we turned out pretty good. All three of us are hard working members of society is one way to put it. Thank you Mary Louise Harvey for being a great mother and doing a good job. In this photo, she is standing in back and seated with us is her mother, Mary Thompson. We couldn't have asked for a better Mom. She gave more than she should have to give us three children as much as possible. We went to drive-in movies during the summer, camping, picnics, Disneyland more than once, daytime trips to the beach, 4th of July fireworks trips to the beach. And she let us talk her into getting a swimming pool installed.

Funny Critters

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

A Time For ... Sorting Through It This period of seclusion has meant that projects, long planned are, well, still mostly in the planning stage but some things ARE actually getting done. Mirabile dictu! One of them is going through old photographs. There are many of people and places no longer known — which to keep and which to throw? — but there are also others…

Like this one, with a story that we remember if no one else does. India, the tag end of 1968, halfway through a year spent in New Delhi on a Graduate Professional Schools in India program. It’s Christmas vacation, Kay and I are traveling and after an adventure with the younger brother (and his Aide-de-Camp) of the Maharana in Udaipur, a visit to old haunts in Ahmedabad, and an uncomfortable stay with a family in Mumbai that didn’t want us there but had to on orders from older brother who lived elsewhere, we were on a third class train going to Poona for New Year’s Eve. The Indian Army Major I was dating at the time had said he’d meet us at the house of his friend, a Swede, that he would arrange everything, and that we’d celebrate the coming of the New Year together and ride the next morning. So that was the plan. Now back then in India telephones, if present at all, rarely worked outside of an immediate city area so people wrote letters or sent telegrams and travel wasn’t either easy or predictable. Not to mention clean or comfortable. The train to Poona climbing the Western Ghats (mountains) from Mumbai was late and arrived at Shivajinagar station well past sunset. No Major on the platform. In fact, very nearly no one on the platform. A scooter rickshaw was hard to find. The Swede’s bungalow, for which we had a scribbled address, was away along unlit roads. When we arrived, about 11, the isolated house was dark and the scooter rickshaw wallah (“wallah” describing a man who had something to do with the noun preceding it; our editor here in Julian is a “newspaper wallah”) dumped us, tried to overcharge us (par for the course) and left us standing with our luggage on the night road. We went to the door and knocked. A very sleepy Swede eventually opened it. “Sarbjit? Letter? No, I haven’t heard anything. No word at all. Who are you?” Fortunately, the two young women in front of him, forlorn and dirty, moved his heart and hospitality. He did have extra bedrooms, come in, something to eat? Drink? So we celebrated New Year’s with a kind stranger, eating decent food and drinking an amount of alcohol that was, in a predominantly teetotaling country, immense. We finally wove our way to bed around 2:00 a.m., firm friends with the Swede and ever grateful for his hospitality. Shortly after falling into a… let’s hide the adjective that had to do with too much Scotch… stupor we were awoken by tapping in the window. It was Sarbjit, my Major. His train had been delayed (surprise) and the letter he purportedly had sent the Swede….anyway, we all got up and continued to party until dawn when we were ready to weave our way back to bed. “Oh, no,” said Sarbjit. “I promised you riding this morning and it’s all arranged. The horses will be ready about six and you,” he turned to me, “will ride the jumper.” We protested weakly. And that’s why there is a picture of a young me, early New Year’s morning 1969, going over a jump on a strange horse that I would never have attempted under normal circumstances. Looking back over let’s forget how many years, I see I should have given the horse more rein. Oh, well, we’re not all perfect. P.S. Some may have noticed the lack of a helmet. We didn’t wear helmets back then except for horseshows and then they were only cosmetic. No chin strap. I still have mine, almost new.

This past week I was looking at facebook posts and saw a photo of hens standing on and near a bale of straw. The caption read “The average person has $15,000.00 in their bank account. I have $2.78 but have you seen my chickens?” One lady who probably has never had the privilege of watching chickens didn’t understand the meaning of the post. I have had chickens at least three times in my life and I always enjoy having them close to me. They aren’t usually a pet that you can hold and cuddle, though some seem to like cuddling and some like to sit still beside a human. My son Thomas seems to attract hens in this way. Chickens are talkers though. Mostly they mumble. Sometimes during the day when they are napping they don’t make a sound so they are difficult to find. However in the evening they walk into their chicken coop without any help and they settle in for the night while mumbling a few words to each other until they are all asleep. I don’t say that we put the chickens away at night; I say that we tuck them in because they choose their own places inside the chicken house to settle in for the night. At night we count them before locking them in and we count them from time to time during the day too. We have hawks in the skies above and near our property and I don’t want them thinking that I am raising dinners for them. Driving back and forth from the newspaper office to home, husband Mike drives to the house four or five times each day. Usually the chickens and the cats ignore his comings and goings, but once their inner clocks tell them that it’s dinner time, the chickens come running and the cats come slowly walking to the front porch when he drives up the driveway. Mike feeds the cats dry cat food and the chickens love the dry cat food. They shove the cats out of the way to eat it, so as the sun stays up longer, we try to feed the cats after the chickens have bedded themselves down for the night. This week we have a new issue. We have baby skunks that live near the end of our front porch. They also have figured out when dinner will arrive. One recent evening when Mike put the food out for the cats, one of the skunks grabbed a dish and pulled it away from where the cats could get to it. Actually we have been feeding skunks for years. However, unlike the chickens they usually wait until the cats are nearly done eating before barging in. Apparently we have a new skunk rule that says get the food first. Since we have three teenage skunks right now we get to hear skunk fights. Skunks argue with each other a lot and thankfully they leave the rest of us alone. Wait for bug season. Buck, the hen that we used to have would run up to Mike’s car after he delivered newspapers to Ranchita during bug season. She loved eating the bugs off of his car grille. I wonder if these chickens will figure that out. She figured it out on her own. For years her late afternoon or early evening routine involved running up to the newly arrived car that Mike drove and she ate as many bugs as she could reach. She completely ignored my car. Don’t ever think that chickens are stupid. I’ve seen photos of a book called “How to Speak Chicken: Why your chickens do what they do and say what they say.” I’m sure I need to buy this book. The author, like me, thinks that it’s fun spending time with chickens and like me she finds them fascinating. We have three outdoor cats. The two neutered males seemingly like to spend most of their time sleeping in comfortable places. The female is a huntress. When one of us goes to the chicken coop to let them out for the day, she follows and goes in the coop looking for mice. If she doesn’t find any, she may walk back toward the house or she may head off into a totally different direction always aware of sights and sounds immediately around her. Sometimes she stops because something has caught her attention and she always stays out of the way of the chickens. When they were new to our property they would chase her. They don’t do that anymore, but she has learned not to trust them. When we first got these five chickens we had two roosters. One was a large Rhode Island Red rooster that was killed by having his head pulled off through a fence. He was decapitated, probably by a raccoon. They sometimes like to kill for sport. We soon replaced him with a larger Rhode Island Red rooster who is larger than the first, very handsome and very clumsy. Chickens are usually very good runners. They run away from predators and they run toward food. Big Red however has huge feet and he really isn’t one bit graceful when he tries to run. I’m really not sure how to describe what to call his motions other than clumsy and comical. However he gets where he wants to go. Not as quickly as the others, but he gets there. Being home bound gives me more than my usual amount of time to watch my animals and watching chickens is fun. These are my thoughts.

Simple And Fun Crafts To Keep Kids Entertained (StatePoint) Keeping children content and occupied isn't always an easy task -- especially with more and more days being spent at home. As parents and caregivers, it can also be challenging to come up with creative solutions and fun projects that differ each day. However, even if you lack crafting abilities, you can still inspire your kids and help them stretch their creative muscles with items commonly found right at home, including scissors, straws, rulers and duct tape. In an effort to keep your kids entertained on those rainy, “I’m bored,” or just need something to do days, Duck Tape Brand Duct Tape offers several ideas for kids of all ages to engage in crafting fun -- from teens to toddlers. And, Duck Tape keeps messes at bay since no glue, glitter or markers are needed. 1. Flower Power. Bring the garden inside with Duck Tape roses -- no watering required!

Heart & Crown Chair

Several rare "Heart and Crown" side chairs were sold at a Skinner auction in Massachusetts. The high-back chair featuring molded bannisters, turned legs and a rush seat is part of an old tradition. Furniture makers in Connecticut created this style and used it from about 1740 to 1770. It was an interpretation of the expensive Philadelphia and Boston chairs made at the time. Instead of the curved crest of the formal city chairs, the top of the back was made with a cutout heart and a crown-shaped crest. Almost all of the Heart and Crown chairs were painted black or dark brown, and all had the

rush seat. An auctioned chair, 44 3/4 inches high and attributed to Andrew Durand of Milford, Connecticut, is painted black and has the characteristic banisters and turnings. It auctioned several years ago for $9,000, which was three times the estimate. *** Q: I have a two-bladed pocket knife I think is quite old. It's marked "Solingen, Germany" on one side of the blade and "Arnex, stainless" on the other side. Both side panels are embossed with three heads of racehorses, horseshoes and riding crops. My late wife worked for a horse farm owner who gave it to her for me. Is it worth keeping? A: Solingen, Germany, is known as the "City of Blades." It has been the center of knifemaking in Germany since the Middle Ages and home to several manufacturers of knives, swords and cutlery. Arnex was in business in Solingen from about 1920 to 1940. Some pocket

knives made by Arnex have handles decorated with animals, sports, trains, zeppelins and other themes. The value of your pocket knife is under $25. *** Q: I have a tall, white pitcher with daisies painted on it and gold trim. It's marked "Bel-Terr China, U.S.A., 22 Kt. Gold." I'd like to sell it. What is it worth? A: Bel-Terr China was founded in 1961 by Belden and Terry Ham in East Palestine, Ohio. The company is no longer in business. Bel-Terr pitchers, about 8 inches tall, sell for under $20. *** CURRENT PRICES Egg beater, tin and steel, wood handle, side gear drive, teeth and crimp, Holt's, 1899, 10 3/4 x 3 inches, $75.

(NAPSA)—A recent survey of teenagers in the U.S. uncovered surprising insights about math and science education in America. What The Study Found For one thing, the survey, commissioned by Intel Corporation, found the vast majority of American teens feel confident in their own math and science abilities. But they also generally agree there’s a math and science crisis in K-12 education in the United States. This suggests they may not feel personally responsible for the problem of falling math and science scores in the U.S. Instead, teens primarily attribute their lack of confidence in the United States’ math and scienceabilities to a lack of work ethic and discipline on the part of others, not a lack of school fund- ing or resources, which many experts point to as the culprits. Fortunately, the teens do understand that math and science are important to their future success and express an interest in these subjects. Ninety-nine percent believe it’s important to be good at math and science and nearly 60 percent aspire to pursue a math- or science-related career. What You Can Do There are several ways parents can help children learn science and math. Here are just a couple of suggestions: Encourage questions. Encourage kids’ natural curiosity about the world. Scientists are professional question askers and relentless in their quest for answers. Offer a math- and science-friendly home. Science happens everywhere. Gardening, — —_ 0 8 5%O ofteens are confident in their own math and scienceabilities, but more thana third are not confidentin the US’ overall abilities in these subjects.

California Commentary

Of Nuclear-Powered Airplanes And The Bullet Train

by Jon Coupal

A long-forgotten aspect of the nuclear arms race was the costly undertaking by the United States to develop a nuclear-powered aircraft as a strategic bomber. Even before Allied powers defeated Nazi Germany in 1945, both the United States and the Soviet Union were battling for post-war superiority. With the successful detonation of two atomic bombs — bringing the Pacific Theater hostilities to an abrupt halt — the U.S. had a brief period of nuclear superiority over the USSR. That would not last long as the USSR quickly accelerated its nuclear program and the Cold War was on. In May 1946, the United States Army Air Forces started the Nuclear Energy for the Propulsion of Aircraft (NEPA) project. The alluring idea was to build an aircraft that could, in theory, stay aloft indefinitely. In 1951, the NEPA project was succeeded by the Aircraft Nuclear Propulsion (ANP) program. However, despite the efforts of America’s best nuclear and aviation scientists working with a virtually unlimited budget, the problems were insurmountable. The biggest hurdle was that nuclear reactors are very heavy. Sustaining one aloft with a fixedwing aircraft turned out to be a challenge that could only be overcome by using a modified B-26 as a platform. Reducing the weight of the reactors by shielding them with lighter material put the flight crews in danger from the high risk of radiation exposure. This latter problem never worried the Soviets in that their similar programs were willing to so expose the crews. But this led to an unacceptable mortality rate, even for the Soviets. After more than a decade of throwing good dollars after bad, the aircraft nuclear propulsion programs were substantially terminated by President John F. Kennedy in 1961. The lessons of history should be instructive for Californians, who have watched for more than a decade as the state has thrown their money into the increasingly impossible high-speed rail program. Even before the California High-Speed Rail bond proposal appeared on the ballot in November 2008, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association commissioned a study in

conjunction with the Reason Foundation because of deep concerns about the project’s viability. The study, published in September 2008, warned: “The CHSRA plans as currently proposed are likely to have very little relationship to what would eventually be built due to questionable ridership projections and cost assumptions, overly optimistic projections of ridership diversion from other modes of transport, insufficient attention to potential speed restrictions and safety issues and discounting of potential community or political opposition. Further, the system’s environmental benefits have been grossly exaggerated, especially with respect to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions that have been associated with climate change.” Every negative prediction about the project came to be realized. Even initial advocates of the project, including a former chairman of the High Speed Rail Authority, have turned against the costly boondoggle. At the end of 2018, California’s own state auditor issued a scathing report excoriating the project’s mismanagement, waste and lack of transparency. Speed-readers needed to go no further than the subtitle to learn the conclusion: “Flawed decision making and poor contract management have contributed to billions in cost overruns and delays in the system’s construction.” Nothing has improved since then, and much looks even worse. In December 2019, the Federal Railroad Administration objected to the California High-Speed Rail Authority’s plan to issue a request for proposals to build train track and install electrical wiring and maintenance facilities. The FRA warned, “it is premature for CHSRA to undertake another major design-build contract.” Disregarding the concerns, the rail authority went ahead the next day with its plan to issue the RFP. In February, the authority issued its latest two-year “business plan,” which once again increased the projected cost and reported a further delay in completion. Color us shocked. Soon after, a draft environmental document outlined the preferred route from Bakersfield to Palmdale, an continued on page 11

• Sigurd the Mighty, a ninth-century Norse earl of Orkney, was killed by an enemy he had beheaded several hours earlier. He'd tied the man's head to his horse's saddle, but while riding home one of its protruding teeth grazed his leg, causing an infection from which the unlucky Sigurd died. • Irish author and politician Edmund Burke was not a skilled public speaker. In fact, his speeches at the House of Commons were so boring, many MPs left the building once he stood up. • In 1907, an ad campaign for Kellogg's Corn Flakes offered a free box of cereal to any woman who would wink at her grocer. • While Jackie Robinson was laid up for two weeks in 1948 with a hamstring injury, the Dodgers secretly replaced him with Herschel Morowitz, a white man in black face. • The average human body contains enough iron to make a 3-inch-long nail. It also contains enough fat to produce seven bars of soap. • The first washing machine was invented in 1782 by H. Sidgier of Great Britain. His design was later honed by other inventors, including William Blackstone, who invented the first at-home washer as a birthday gift for his wife. • Drinking seawater will cause rapid dehydration and, if enough is consumed, eventually death. Frozen seawater is a much safer alternative, since it contains only a tenth as much salt as the liquid form, due to the fact that the salt is separated from the water when freezing as it does not fit into the crystalline structure of ice. • The first lipstick appeared in ancient Mesopotamia approximately 4,000 years ago, when women decorated their lips with dust made from precious gems. *** Thought for the Day: "The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it." -- Albert Einstein ® 2020 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

® Dear EarthTalk: A friend's dad said it was such a shame that video gaming causes so much global warming, but I don't see the connection. -- Jake, Windham, VT

THE CUTTING EDGE OF SCIENCE AWARD went to River Raines, Fletcher Woodward, and Ricky Aceves for Fuelless Space Travel, while trying launching techniques via the magnetic field. ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEER AWARD goes to Cody Klos. He not only had much data about honey bee population loss, but also human safety. He developed and used a 3D printer to build his Bee Safe Tab product. The connection between video gaming and global warming is mostly about energy use. In short, the huge growth in gaming, and the inefficiency of the consoles from the major manufacturers like Microsoft and Sony, has led to a surge in electricity demand associated with kids’ enjoyment of Fortnite, Minecraft, Roblox and other popular gaming platforms. The first video games came out in the 1950s, but their popularity has increased exponentially since then with the advent of better computer graphics and processing. What’s more, when technology in recent years enabled mobile gaming to be set in motion, the industry’s potential skyrocketed. In 2018, the revenue for gaming products in the United States was $18.4 billion; industry analysts expect the figure to be closer to $230 billion a year by 2022. But this popularity doesn’t come without an environmental price. For starters, the mass production of boxed video games—the kind that come on CDs or DVDs and which you load into your computer or console—generates tons and tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), the leading greenhouse gas. Researchers have found that ~0.39 kilograms of carbon dioxide are released into surrounding airspace with the production of each single boxed game. While less than half a kilogram of pollution doesn’t seem like much, it adds up when you figure in how many individual games are produced. In the last year alone, the production of just one popular new Xbox and PlayStation game, FIFA 20, led to the emission of almost 600,000 kilograms of CO2, roughly equivalent to the energy needed to run 100 cars for a year. The carbon emissions linked to video gaming don't just end at production. Once the game is purchased, it requires a gaming console to actually play it; these consoles are especially energy-inefficient. Certain gaming devices such as the Xbox Series X produce 0.07 kilograms of CO2 for every hour played. Another way that video gaming contributes to the climate crisis is that there are a multitude of ubiquitous games that have extensive “play times,” squandering substantial quantities of energy. Popular video games such as Assassin’s Creed and Grand Theft Auto V can take upwards of 35 hours to complete—and that’s just the main storyline, disregarding freeplay and extra “missions.” The average gamer will use more kilowatt hours of energy in a year than an energy-efficient washing machine. Meanwhile, heavy gamers consume almost three times as many kilowatt hours annually as typical moderate users. But eco-conscious gamers (and parents) can be happy that Sony, Microsoft and other console makers are streamlining production processes to align with wider efforts to curb CO2 emissions, and consumers can expect future iterations of Xbox and PlayStation to sip electricity compared to current models. Likewise, most new games are available for digital download these days which spares the packaging and shipping—and related greenhouse gas emissions— of individual CDs and their plastic-wrapped boxes.

California Commentary

continued from page 9 engineering feat that would cost $18.1 billion and mow down a high school, a homeless shelter, a church, eight motels, 253 housing units, 311 businesses and 175 agricultural fields. In March, the Los Angeles Times revealed that employees of the rail authority’s top consultant had been ordered to hide bad news about the project. There’s no hiding it. The Legislative Analyst’s Office concluded that the latest HSR business plan is not realistic, has significant funding challenges, is susceptible to further cost overruns and is inconsistent with voter intent because it relies on public subsidies. In the 1960s, the president and Congress wisely pulled the plug on a failed project when it became obvious that all the money in the Pentagon couldn’t make it fly.

Until California’s government wises up, we’ll be stuck watching our taxpayer dollars fly out the window. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA).

*** If civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships - the ability of all peoples, of all kinds, to live together, in the same world at peace. — Franklin D. Roosevelt ***

Jr High Science

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The Lamb is usually excited about taking on a new challenge. But if that's a touch of doubt you're feeling, maybe it's you telling yourself to go slow on this until you learn more about it. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Accepting new commitments when you haven't yet finished the batch on hand could be a bit rash. Better to ease up on the new ones until you get further along with your current lot. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Try to be more open-minded in working toward a resolution of that standoff between yourself and a colleague or family member. A little flexibility now could work to your advantage later. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Some people might be anxious about your plans. So you need to take time to explain what you expect to do and how you expect do it. And don't forget to ask for suggestions. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Dealing with an unfamiliar problem can be difficult. The wisest course you can take is to ask for advice from those who have been where you are and have come through it. Good luck. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Tackle a frustrating job problem by considering possibilities you might have ignored before. This reassures colleagues you're serious about finding a solution, even if it's not totally yours. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your balanced approach to life proves to be helpful this

week when someone you care for needs your spiritual comfort, while someone else benefits from your tough-love practicality. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Once again, you're likely to be asked to keep a secret for someone. But do you really want to do so? Be honest with yourself and with your needs before you make any such commitment. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Taking a more direct approach from the more diplomatic one you've used before could make a difference in finally resolving a too-longheld disagreement. Try it. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Being asked for advice is flattering to the Sea Goat, who has a habit of saying the right thing. This time, expect someone to be especially impressed and to act on that sentiment. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) With a number of pressures easing, your project could be making a lot more progress than you expected by this time. That's great news. But don't let yourself be distracted; stay with it. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) An interesting challenge looms that could be exactly what you've been looking for. Discuss this with colleagues who could have much to contribute and who might want to join with you. BORN THIS WEEK: Your heart is always open to offer loving concern for others. And they, in turn, reach out to complete the circle.

ahead and test their measuring and counting skills as they pull together a colorful bouquet. Plus, these flowers make great gifts! 2. Luck of the Draw. Are your kids having a day where everything you suggest sounds unappealing? Help them avoid boredom with a popsicle stick activity jar. Work together to identify fun activities and write each down on a popsicle stick. Let your kids add colorful designs to the sticks and place them in a jar. Next time your family is feeling less than inspired during playtime, bust out the activity jar and leave it to the sticks to decide. 3. Home-Schooled Fun. With most children adjusting to remote learning during this time, it’s important to provide a space where they feel inspired to learn. One great way to do this is to designate a work station where each kid can house favorite supplies and personalize it with

a few decorations -- just as they do at school. Let kids create their own desk organizers with a few items you likely already have on hand, such as Duck Tape, scissors, and empty paper rolls or cereal boxes. Once all the supplies are gathered, all they need to do is wrap the paper rolls and boxes in the tape design of their choosing. Next, designate each container to hold pencils, markers and important homework. Not only will your kids take pride in their new creations, you’ll enjoy not having to search for missing papers each morning. 4. Creative Reading. Help keep reading fun by letting kids create their own custom bookmarks. This easy, DIY project is perfect for beginners, since all the crafter needs to do is cut the tape and fold it over card stock for a oneof-a-kind design. For more inspiration and craft instructions, visit DuckBrand. com. By providing a little creative inspiration, you can help your kids spark their imaginations.
