Extinguishing AFib: A Firefighter’s Story Marin General Hospital Staff Writer
ire Captain Jake Peterson, of San Rafael, was just twenty-nine years old the first time his heart went into atrial fibrillation. He was at a Giant’s game with a paramedic friend when he felt a fluttering in his chest. As Jake describes it, “It felt weird. I felt off. I felt like something wasn’t right.” His friend thought it was most likely nothing, but they headed for the medical tent - just in case. The physician working the tent put Jake on a heart monitor. Looking up at the doctor, the medical technician, and his friend, Jake immediately knew something was wrong. “Their eyes got wide,” he remembers, “and their mouths dropped.” Jake was transported to St. Francis Hospital. When medication failed to put his heart back into normal rhythm, Jake was electrically cardioverted.
The very next day, Jake went to see Dr. Robert Sperling, an interventional cardiologist at Marin General Hospital. Dr. Sperling calmed Jake’s fears, explaining that AFib was quite common and occasionally occurred in younger people. While Jake’s own grandfather had developed AFib at eighty, Dr. Sperling had seen patients as young as 13. Barring any further episodes, Dr. Sperling suggested Jake come in for tests once a year. He also stressed the importance of a healthy lifestyle. As Jake puts it “It was really good that I got it at that age because I changed my habits. I learned to exercise better, eat better, take better care of my body and drink more water.” Jake’s self-imposed lifestyle modifications can be effective for many people with AFib. In fact, Marin General Hospital’s
Center for Integrative Health & Wellness recently introduced the groundbreaking “Get Into Rhythm” lifestyle modification program for AFib patients. The lifestyle changes and regular monitoring served Jake well. He fought fires all over Marin County and was on the frontlines at the historic 2013 Rim Fire in Yosemite. Then, in October of 2014, Jake had an episode on his way to work. He immediately went to the Marin General Hospital Emergency Department. Again, the drugs did not work for him, and he had to be cardioverted electrically. Jake’s doctors were not too alarmed, since it had been ten years since his last episode. But Jake had another bout of AFib just one month later. The medication worked, but Jake was getting concerned. As he puts it, “It’s uncomfortable, it’s weird. It’s your heart. You’re nervous all the time that you’re going to get it again, if you work three days in a row, if you work out too hard or don’t get enough water. The fear of going back into it was always on my mind.” Moreover, while Jake was anxious to get back to work, the Fire Department doctor would not clear him to return. He was finally allowed back on the job in mid-December. Two days later, he went into AFib again. Jake was put on a beta-blocker but he experienced yet another episode in April of 2015. This time, Dr. Sperling referred him to see a cardiologist specializing in Cardiac Electrophysiology, Marin General Hospital’s Dr. Sujoya Dey. She recommended a minimally invasive intervention known as transcatheter cardiac ablation.
This procedure destroys the tiny area of heart muscle that triggers the arrhythmia. A catheter with an electrode at its tip is guided up to the heart through an artery in the groin. Once the exact location of the dysfunctional area has been identified, the electrode destroys it. Jake was less than enthusiastic about the ablation procedure and decided to put it off. Then, in June of 2015, he had another episode and cardioverted at home using medication he had been given for emergency purposes. “After that, I said OK, enough is enough,” Jake recalls. “ Dr. Dey, you’re up.” In July of 2015, Jake went in to Marin General Hospital for cardiac ablation. The procedure took five hours and he was released from the hospital the following day. Because the procedure requires that a patient be on blood thinners for three months after surgery, Jake was not able to return to work right away. He was finally given the all clear to return to the fire station in October of 2015 and has worked a normal schedule ever since. On his days off, Jake is back to an active lifestyle of surfing, golfing, soccer, and playing softball with his teammates at San Rafael’s Albert’s Field.

Generous & Unpretentious
Paul Lazzareschi is our neighbor in Mill Valley [‘Community Crisis,’ March 28]. There is a lot here that is simply not true and I am concerned about the misconceptions it might cause. The plan for The Depot, which will continue to be called The Depot (there is absolutely no plan for it to be called “Paul’s”), is to upgrade the existing structure, which is badly needed. A plan to widen the door for customer access will cut down the bookstore only minimally (maybe 10 percent). Saying that it is 50 percent is blatantly untrue.
Mr. Lazzareschi is a beloved part of Mill Valley. His restaurant Vasco is a wonderful and affordable place and Paul knows everyone who comes in by name. He is generous and unpretentious and this portrayal by Mr. Nicosia could not be further from the truth. Mr. Lazzareschi is a professional who knows how to run this establishment and provide good food, a pleasant atmosphere and keep this landmark afloat. The Depot will benefit from his stewardship. —Donna Seager, via pacificsun.com
Ethics & Morals
I’ve known Paul for over 10 years, and he is a stand-up guy with ethics and morals [‘Community Crisis,’ March 28]. He would do a great job bringing The Depot up to more modern standards and keep the flavor we all love. I couldn’t think of a better or nicer guy to take over The Depot. —Klaus Larsen, via pacificsun.com

Bravo Jack for helping save lives.

Upfront Nils Palsson was a delegate for Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic primary; now, he’s running in California’s 5th Congressional District.
Feel the Turn
Can Nils Palsson, from the Bernie left, unseat Mike Thompson? By Tom Gogola
orth Bay voters may wake up on November 7 to the news that there are two progressives representing the region in Congress—and one of them is a bona fide Berniecrat. Nils Palsson is running against Blue Dog Democrat Mike Thompson in California’s 5th Congressional District, decrying the incumbent’s long list of big-money contributions from the corporate
world as he’s launched a Sandersfriendly campaign—and accepting individual contributions of $27. Palsson, 32, is a working dad and was a delegate for the Vermont senator in the 2016 Democratic primary. The Santa Rosa resident is running as an independent this year. It’s his second stab at the seat, which Thompson has held since 1999. Palsson ran in 2016 and came in third behind Thompson and Republican Carlos Santamaria in the primary that year. The pro-gun Thompson
went on to handily dispatch Santamaria by a margin of 3–1 in the general election. His district includes Santa Rosa, Napa County and parts of Contra Costa and Solano counties. But there’s no Republican in the race for the 5th this year, and Palsson believes he’s got a real shot at taking down Thompson from the left. Especially since Thompson may actually be—the Zodiac Killer! In a recent campaign e-blast, Palsson flatly declared, “I’m running for Congress against the infamous Zodiac Killer.” What?
The jibe played off the difficulty in defeating a popular and longstanding incumbent. An editorial that ran in the Sonoma Index-Tribune in 2016 noted that “for Thompson to lose, something extraordinary would have to happen, like he were revealed to be the never-captured Zodiac Killer from the 1970s.” Two years later, the Zodiac Killer has still not been caught, and Palsson’s having some fun-not-fun with it. He goes on to immediately say that he’s joking. “Let me make it abundantly clear,” Palsson writes. “Mike Thompson is not the Zodiac Killer. But there is a hidden truth that, if revealed, might have roughly the same effect on local voters as if he were to be revealed as the notorious murderer of yore.” The point about Thompson, he says, is that he represents the worst of the worst when it comes to the constellation of his contributor base. “The fact is that Thompson has accepted an alarming number of yuge political contributions from lobbyists representing some of the world’s most destructive corporations,” he writes. Palsson is intent on pushing a people-first agenda, he says, that’s focused on wage-equity and Medicare for all, dealing with the student debt crisis and pushing for higher wages. All very Bernie. He’s also weighing in on gun violence as part of his pitch to voters, and says that Thompson has come up short on that front despite his prominence on the issue among Democrats. “I haven’t seen visionary leadership from him on any issue,” says Palsson, “including the gun thing.” Palsson adds that he’s not calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment. “I don’t go that far,” he says and notes that the Second Amendment’s original intention was as a bulwark against tyranny. Indeed, he’s wary of ongoing efforts to turn the gun-control debate into a push for legislation to raise the legal age for gun ownership to 21. “I’m not entirely sold on that,” he says, arguing that when youth turn 18, they’re granted full citizenship—and can be given a gun and sent off to war. And he’s got his own war to fight between now and the June primary. Palsson’s hoping to nab some highlevel endorsements, and says he needs to ramp up the fundraising. “I feel pretty strong going into the primary,” he says, and if he makes it through and squares off against Thompson in the general, who knows. “People will come out of the woodwork,” he says.Y
Resistance State Manuel Pastor on what other states can learn from California By Wallace Baine
he citizens of California seem to have a talent for pioneering one regrettable sociopolitical phenomenon after another, years before the country as a whole heedlessly tries the same thing. There are too many examples to catalogue: The embrace of Ronald Reagan, tax cut fever, alarmist immigration phobia and—most salient to today’s headlines—the election of a cartoonish Republican celebrity with zero government experience. We Californians often react to the ensuing sense of déjà vu—much like a teenager whose dad has just discovered Vampire Weekend. But writer and sociologist Manuel Pastor thinks we’d be better off cooling it with the rolling eyes and air of miffed superiority. “The reluctance to learn from California has been there for a while,” he says. “The country always looks to its founding [East] Coast, and not to its left coast. So, we in California can either talk about this
in an arrogant fashion, or we can talk about this with the humility of someone who is in recovery. Because we are. This state is in recovery from its own addiction to allowing race to divide the polity, its own addiction to quick-fix schemes, its addiction to ‘Only I can fix this problem’— which was Arnold’s pitch as well as Trump’s. We can puff out our chest and brag about some wisdom we have, or we can share the lessons from some of the mistakes we’ve made with some humility.” Pastor is the author of a new book titled State of Resistance: What California’s Dizzying Descent and Remarkable Resurgence Mean for America’s Future. It’s a deep dive into the political, social and cultural upheavals that have characterized California’s history since the middle of the last century, and how those upheavals have predicted what the U.S. at large was to experience later. Pastor likes to call California “America fast-forward,” and asserts that the demographic anxiety,

Manuel Pastor, author of ‘State of Resistance: What California’s Dizzying Descent and Remarkable Resurgence Mean for America’s Future,’ will speak in the Bay Area on April 28.
the economic uncertainty and the profiteering from political polarization that has characterized the Trump Era is essentially the story of California in the 1990s. “Think about all that happened [in California in the ’90s]—Prop. 187, the elimination of bilingual education, the elimination of affirmative action,” says Pastor, a former UC Santa Cruz student who also taught at UCSC for a decade. “We thought that scapegoating immigrants would somehow recover the economy. It didn’t work. And it sounds a lot like what the nation is doing right now.” State of Resistance was not conceived as a reaction to the election of Donald Trump, says Pastor. In fact, he had begun work on the book long before the 2016 presidential election, and was anticipating a Hillary Clinton presidency. “I started writing this book mostly because I was afraid that what happened when Obama won would continue to happen when Hillary won.” He’s referring to heavy Democratic Party electoral losses in state Houses during the Obama years. After the 2016 election, Pastor’s calculus changed. Led by majority Democrats and Gov. Jerry Brown, California began to position itself in opposition to the Trump administration on a number of issues, and Pastor began to trace California’s recent transformation to a citadel of blue-state values. But he’s careful not to go overboard on the California Dream narrative, pointing to huge challenges the state faces in such areas as income inequality and the ongoing housing crisis. Pastor stresses that State of Resistance is not only for Californians. It’s an American story, and as such, his book has been getting attention in states beyond California. “It’s on people’s radar for a number of reasons,” he says. “When you look at the parallels between the U.S. today and California in the ’90s, it’s so obvious that people are really intrigued. And within the state, we’ve lived through this dramatic 25-year transformation. And people are excited to see the story being told in a way in which they can see themselves in it.”Y

Samantha Paris, founder of Sausalito’s Voicetrax San Francisco, guides voice actor Maureen O’Donoghue.
Finding a Voice
Samantha Paris learns from her students By David Templeton
emember what I always say, ‘Safety lies in the risk.’” Samantha Paris, gently waving her arms with each syllable she speaks, faces a student, Elizabeth Frazier, through the glass of the recording studio. About a dozen other students watch as Paris does her thing. “Now let’s try that again,” she tells Frazier, who’s just been practicing a line of advertising copy for Stouffer’s macaroni and cheese, performing it in the bright-andchipper style of Julie Andrews. “This time, let’s do something different,” Paris says. “This time, I want you to seduce us.” “Oh, god!” Frazier says, laughing. “So let’s try for the color violet,” Paris continues. “Give me super sensual and super sexy and do it in a nice, low pitch. Take a nice deep
breath in, let it out slowly, and then say the line. Ready? Let’s go.” “There’s one very good reason,” Frazier begins, “why Stouffer’s hasn’t changed its macaroni and cheese recipe … in 35 years. You’d never forgive us.” She nails it. Never has macaroni and cheese sounded sexier. To the raucous cheers of the class, Paris says, “Elizabeth … that was beautiful. That’s voice acting people! Now, let’s try orange—really nurturing and warm. Ready? Go!” It’s a Saturday afternoon at Voicetrax voice-over academy in Sausalito, and founder Paris is teaching an intermediate level two-session script analysis class. The students have been working at identifying various ways to deliver advertising copy, by identifying different “colors” that are suggested
in the text. This technique is designed to help the actors engage their full range of vocal abilities. They’ve also learned little tricks to help them get out of their own comfort zones, including singing the copy in the style of opera, rap or country western, just to bypass the tendency to overthink their performances. Clearly, such techniques are working. After all, Paris has been doing this kind of work, and teaching it to thousands of students, for the last 30 years. “My teaching is very unconscious,” Paris says, after the class. “I don’t think that hard about it. I just do it. It’s a stream of consciousness. For me, it’s all about having an open heart, and listening. I know that some of my students are going through a lot, and I know I need to acknowledge that.”
In today’s class, for example, there are students who’ve recently overcome strokes or heart attacks, unplanned retirements, divorces, break-ups and more. Some suffer crippling stage fright. Others struggle with low self-esteem, and view voiceacting as a way to come face-to-face with their anxieties. Paris says that she does whatever it takes—coaxing and sweet-talking, joshing and teasing, delivering hilarious F-bomb-laden encouragements or offering plain, honest, straight-taking criticism—to facilitate the necessary breakthroughs. “This sounds a little corny, but I’ve learned that if I can just be authentic, and come from love, it’s going to be OK, and I’m going to say the right things,” Paris says. “We all have our baggage, of course. We talk about this all the time here. That microphone doesn’t lie. If you

was moved from her living room to downtown Sausalito, where the Voicetrax academy was built. “People are often surprised at how much available work there is in the voiceover industry,” Paris says. “And that’s specifically true here in the Bay Area. Thanks to Silicon Valley, the average Bay Area voice actor, with a talent agent, can do very well in this business.” Paris is taking a break in an adjoining studio. Just outside the door, another, even more raucous class—this one focusing on video game voice-overs—is taking place. A quick glance around the room shows a fairly even mix of male and female students. “When I first started in this industry, in the ’70s, 90 percent of all voice-over work was being done by men,” Paris acknowledges. “Nowadays, it’s about 60 percent men, 40 percent women. So things are getting better.” Another change in the industry, she points out, is that it’s no longer necessary to have an agent to land voice-acting gigs, though Paris insists that it is still the best route toward getting steady work. “Having an agent puts you at the top tier of voice actors,” she says, “but there’s now a tier right below that.” There are, she explains, a number of websites where one can audition for various voice acting jobs, usually for a yearly fee. “The pay is lower for those jobs, and most of the work isn’t quite so sexy, but there are jobs available at that just-below-having-an-agent level,” Paris says. Obviously, some people do well with such “second-tier” approaches. “But a lot of them don’t,” Paris says, “because there’s a tendency for people to sign up, pay their money and start auditioning before they really know what they’re doing. Back in my day, when there were just talent agents, you had to study your craft, and study some more, until you were fucking great. You were not going to be signed by an agent until you were great. And that takes a lot of work, and a lot of dedication. If you want to be successful, you have to put in the effort. You have to do the work. And you have to believe in yourself. “And that,” she continues, “takes work, too.” Ironically, Paris says she found it harder to follow her own advice when it came to writing Finding the Bunny. She first set out to write

the book four years ago, in hopes of releasing it in time for Voicetrax’s 30th anniversary. “But I was scared out of my mind,” she says. “At first, I hired a ghostwriter, because I assumed I wasn’t smart enough to write it myself. Growing up, I was always told I was stupid. My brother and sister were the readers in our house. They always had their noses in a book. I always had my nose buried in the television. It ultimately paid off, since I’ve had a career doing cartoons and commercials and stuff. But when you don’t read as a kid, and everyone else does, you can easily develop a self-identity as the stupid one.” After spending “a small fortune” on the ghostwriter, Paris says that she wasn’t happy with the way the book was turning out. “It finally dawned on me, ‘Well shit, Samantha. If you want a memoir, you’re going to have to write it yourself.’ But I was still petrified, just frozen in fear. I always talk about how safety lies in the risk. But I was so scared to dive in and start writing.” What finally gave her the courage, she says, were her students. “To me, they are so brave,” she says. “It was pretty obvious that I had to do what they do when they come in here. I had to take the risk. So I basically just said, ‘Oh Sammy, fuck it. Just start and see what happens.’”
It took another three years, but she finally completed the book, with a forward by actor Peter Coyote. “It’s so funny,” she says. “I constantly tell my students that anything they set their minds to, they can do. But I’d had such a hard time believing that for myself. When the moment finally came that the truck arrived at my house, and 1,000 copies of my book were delivered to my garage, I was shaking so hard that my husband had to open the first box and put the book in my hands.” As for what’s next, Paris says that she’d love to see the book developed into a television show about the voice-over industry. Maybe she’ll even try writing another book. And of course, she plans to continue training new voice actors. “I’ve always had the philosophy that you have to just enjoy the journey, work hard, be authentic, come from love and see where that takes you,” she says. “I swear to God, that’s how I live my life. The older I get, the more I’m into having an awareness of what the universe is telling us. I truly believe this book is going to take me someplace else, and I’m really looking forward to finding out what that is.”Y Samantha Paris and some of her students will be performing sections from ‘Finding the Bunny’ on Sunday, April 15 at Book Passage, 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera, 4pm; bookpassage.com.

are hurting, or angry or whatever, that’s going to come out—and the microphone will reveal it.” Voicetrax currently employs 35 experienced teachers, has more than 300 students and offers 80 different voiceover courses. Courses are offered in two six-month “semesters,” and take place morning, noon and night, seven days a week. “That’s crazy, huh?” Paris says. “I mean, ‘How did this happen!’ right?” That’s a question that she answers in Finding the Bunny, a charmingly crafted memoir of her journey from fanciful, insecure, TV-obsessed Los Angeles kid to her current position as the owner of the largest voice-over training program in the country. Born in Southern California, Paris dreamed early of becoming an actress, a goal that was not enthusiastically supported by her parents, who struggled with alcoholism, and often made her feel less intelligent than her more bookish brother and sister. As she describes in the book, she eventually came to see the Playboy magazine bunny logo—an image (hidden somewhere on the cover of the magazine each month) that made a regular appearance in her home, thanks to her older brother— as a kind of symbol for searching for one’s hopes and dreams. She soon set out to find her own “bunny,” which in her case, she knew, would have something to do with acting. At the age of 16, Paris landed an agent, and quickly began getting work in front of the camera (including prominent roles on James at 16, Touched by an Angel, ABC Afterschool Specials and others), as well as in front of a microphone (including voice work on Jem and the Holograms, Bionic Six and thousands of commercials). It was as a voice actor that she says she found the most freedom to become whoever she wanted to be. After moving to the Bay Area in 1988, and choosing Mill Valley as her home, she found herself teaching voice-over (almost by accident) to a rapidly increasing number of eager Bay Area students. That was three decades ago. Almost immediately, under the business name Voicetrax San Francisco, Paris’s reputation as a teacher took off, boosted by stellar word-of-mouth from her students, and by regular appearances on KGO’s The Ronn Owens Show, where she would “audition” wannabe voice actors live on the radio. Eventually, Paris’ operation

t is hard not to get cynical about the food/restaurant business when it seems like every other day a large corporation swallows another “little guy” and inevitably the quality of the smaller entity quietly erodes. With chain restaurants or multi-units, this scenario typically plays out with a gradual diminution of food quality. Fifteen-year-old Pacific Catch, with eight locations throughout the Bay Area, appears to be changing that paradigm. Six months ago the company’s original CEO, Keith Cox, returned to the group after leaving in 2012. For those old enough to remember, Cox also started World Wrapps with several partners in San Francisco in 1995. I recall thinking that he was a bit ahead of his time with those crazy multi-colored tortillas. Today, Pacific Catch has embraced a sustainability model, and timing seems spot-on. Along with hiring a director of sustainability, the restaurant has partnered with several organizations— including the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch—that require Pacific
Catch to source its seafood from environmentally responsible places. Here’s the upside of a multi-unit business when it’s done right: The revenue generated from multiple locations allows the company to grow (scale), purchase good-quality ingredients and pay for talent in the kitchen. From all accounts, Pacific Catch is doing just that. Its recent Clean Catch menu featured several inspired dishes, including Citrus Poke Tacos made with cubed kanpachi fish, orange, yuzu, pomegranate and ginger. The Salmon Bowl was a delicious medley of flavors—quinoa, grilled salmon, brown rice, soy tahini drizzle, cilantro-pepita pesto, avocado and more. Navigating the food world is no easy task these days—and seafood is one of the most restricted facets of the industry. But if Pacific Catch stays the course, and continues to take a mindful approach to its expanding business, let’s hope for smooth sailing ahead.Y Pacific Catch, 133 Corte Madera Town Center, Corte Madera; 415/927-3474; pacificcatch.com.

Guitar master Mark Karan, represented by Floating Records, will perform on Saturday, April 14 as part of Throckmorton Theatre’s Spring Revue concert.
Local label showcases its top talent By Charlie Swanson
loating Records was born on a boat—specifically a Sausalito houseboat—by longtime Marin resident and lifelong music lover Don Zimmer in 2008. “I was really interested in recording original music, and that spurred an interest in distribution,” says Zimmer, a former Nasdaq trader who now splits his time between Marin and Blaine, Idaho. “Doing it for myself and for friends just blossomed into a record label.” Over the past 10 years, Floating Records has represented and distributed albums for dozens of local musicians like Tracy Blackman, Jesse Lee Kincaid, Go by Ocean and Fiver Brown. This week, Floating Records hosts a Spring Revue concert at Throckmorton Theatre, featuring performances by three of the label’s top current artists: Americana charttoppers Jeffrey Halford & the Healers and guitar masters Mark Karan and Peter Kaukonen. When Zimmer began Floating Records, he was selling CDs to
Whole Foods Markets and other major platforms. These days, he’s getting into vinyl, and last year Floating Records put out its first vinyl release with Jeffrey Halford’s Lo-Fi Dreams. “It got some chart time, it was on the radio, and we really liked that experience of making records,” says Zimmer of Lo-Fi Dreams. This year, Floating Records will release more vinyl, with albums in the works by psychedelic blues-rocker Reverend Freakchild, Southern rock band Moses Guest, Karan, Kaukonen and others. Zimmer says that hosting live events was also always a part of Floating Records’ mission. “I appreciate the Throckmorton Theatre for the diversity of what it does,” Zimmer says. “I want to thank them and thank the support of the community.”Y Spring Revue, Saturday, April 14, Throckmorton Theatre, 142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley; 8pm; $21-$35; 415/383-9600.

Win up to $1500 and bask in the limelight in New York City! Dogs of all shapes and sizes are wanted and welcome. ‘Foxtrot,’ playing this week at the Christopher B. Smith Rafael Center, is an Israeli film that tells the story of a family dealing with the loss of its military son.
Quagmire ‘Foxtrot’: An unusual tragi-comedy about a war that never ends By Richard von Busack
t’s not funny, ha-ha—it’s funny, Kaf ka. The slightly surreal Israeli tragi-comedy Foxtrot astonishes with its ability to thrive on serious tonal shifts, flashforwards and a bit of animation. A pair of soldiers comes to the door of Michael (Lior Ashkenazi) and Daphna (Sarah Adler, of Notre Musique) with a regret-to-inform-you notice that their son Jonathan has been killed. Daphna keels over in a dead faint. The troops get busy, lifting her skirt and shooting her full of tranquilizers. One soldier insists that the horrified father drink water every hour to keep hydrated, programming his cellphone for reminders. Then comes word that the dead son is posthumously promoted from corporal to staff sergeant. A nebbish of a chaplain arrives to outline all of the mandatory religious gestures the funeral must contain. Suddenly, startling news arrives, just as a murmuration of starlings darkens the windows. We travel to checkpoint Foxtrot, deep in a windy desert, where it looks like it’s already after the end
of the world. The seemingly late Jonathan (Yonatan Shiray) and his three fellow troops are bivouacked in a freight container that’s slowly sinking into the grey mud. When it doesn’t rain buckets, it drips. Here’s the forlorn comedy of soldiers living in filth and talking their trash. One particularly piercing scene is of a plump, nicely dressed mom kept at the checkpoint, forced to stand in a cloudburst, trying not to cry as her dress and her hair are ruined. Meanwhile, an antique computer slowly buzzes and blats out an OK for her to proceed. It’s a typical soldier’s duty— dead boredom punctuated with minutes of fright; finally, there’s one wrong move, and terrible calamity. Samuel Maoz (2009’s Lebanon) demonstrates a depth of feeling and a sense of bitter absurdity. And he doesn’t make the prime mistake of a director telling a story of a perhaps justifiable war. As per the scene of the drenched, humiliated mom, Maoz never even once claims that the hunters suffer as much as the hunted.Y

By Amy Alkon
I’m a man in my 60s. Looking back on my romantic life, I was always the guy women spent time with when their husband or boyfriend wasn’t paying attention to them or while they waited for the right guy (status, power, money) to show up. I’m good-looking, but I realize from reading you that I never had enough “mate value,” never mastering the essence of Cialdini’s “scarcity principle.” I’m a retired teacher. For 20-some years, I taught kids who had severe behavioral problems. While parents, grandparents and school personnel appreciated what I did, it didn’t hold much long-term interest for women. My wife left me for someone with much higher “mate value.” I keep thinking that all of this could have been avoided if I had only chosen a profession with high-end “mate value.”—Alone
You were never going to be the guy for those women who pictured themselves spending lazy summer afternoons in Martha’s Vineyard (as opposed to Martha’s Laundromat). However, your having a middlin’-bucks job instead of a megabucks one probably wasn’t the root of your mate-retention issues. It turns out that there’s more to mate value than money and a “high-end” job. In fact, evolutionary psychologist David Buss did a massive cross-cultural survey looking at what men and women want in a partner, and kindness topped the list for each. (Yes, kindness—which was pretty much your job description.) Intelligence was another list-topper. What wasn’t on the lists at all? A partner who’s a pushover—always available, never any pesky boundaries. Accordingly, you mention psychologist Robert Cialdini, whose “scarcity principle” I’ve referenced. Basically, we value—and want— what is out of reach and seems hard to get, not what seems hard to get rid of. That “hard” truth might seem like reason for you to keep looking back with despair. However, within it is actually a message of hope—an action plan. The reality is, you’re in a better position than ever to land and keep a woman. As I often explain, there are sex differences in what men and women prioritize in a partner, with men valuing looks far more than women do. This means that women’s mate value is higher when they’re, say, in their early 20s. And that’s why 22-year-old guys find 22-year-old women seriously hot—as do the grandpas of those 22-year-old dudes. Meanwhile, a 22-year-old guy is essentially gum under the tire of a 32-year-old guy’s Mercedes. Because women prioritize status and resources in a male partner, men’s mate value tends to increase as they get older and more accomplished. Cruelly, women’s mate value declines with age. On a more positive note, what also tends to go is the notion some younger women have that massive character flaws can be outweighed by a massive mansion. Women with a thing for bad boys may likewise come to see the excitement in a man who pays the bills the boring way— through online banking instead of online identity theft. In short, there are plenty of women who’d want a guy like you—providing that you mend your ways. Going back to that “scarcity principle,” what needs to become scarce is your willingness to be a convenient option instead of a priority. Though this has been your default state—for decades—it doesn’t have to remain that way. By repeatedly acting assertively, you’ll actually rewire your brain. This isn’t to say that the old behaviors go away. Unfortunately, there’s no giant neural eraser that comes around once a week like the trash guys the city sends to your neighborhood. What happens is that you transform your default behavior—how you behave when you react automatically—to acting like a man instead of like the male friend who braids women’s hair while they’re waiting for the guy they are having sex with. As for the practical steps to becoming the new bold you: Figure out what seems fair and right, and then say “no” to everything outside that box. Assert yourself even when you’re scared to do it. Sure, you’ll feel uncomfortable, especially the first few times. However, you should slowly begin to do better with the ladies— and maybe even find love, despite it being clear that the only fur you’d ever get a woman would come with the rest of the hamster or the cat.Y Worship the goddess—or sacrifice her at the altar at email@example.com.
For the week of April 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Aries statesman Thomas Jefferson was the third president of the United States. He wrote one of history’s most famous documents, the Declaration of Independence. He was an architect, violinist, inventor and linguist who spoke numerous languages, as well as a philosopher who was knowledgeable about mathematics, surveying and horticulture. But his most laudable success came in 1789, when he procured the French recipe for macaroni and cheese while living in France, and thereafter introduced the dish into American cuisine. JUST KIDDING! I’m making this little joke in the hope that it will encourage you to keep people focused on your most important qualities, and not get distracted by less essential parts of you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In the early
1990s, Australian electrical engineer John O’Sullivan toiled on a research project with a team of radio astronomers. Their goal was to find exploding mini-black holes in the distant voids of outer space. The quest failed. But in the process of doing their experiments, they developed technology that became a key component now used in Wi-Fi. Your digital devices work so well in part because his frustrating misadventure led to a happy accident. According to my reading of your astrological omens, Taurus, we may soon be able to make a comparable conclusion about events in your life.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In the fictional
world created by DC Comics, the superhero Superman has a secret identity as a modest journalist named Clark Kent. Or is it the other way around? Does the modest journalist Clark Kent have a secret identity as the superhero Superman? Only a few people realize that the two of them are the same. I suspect that there is an equally small number of allies who know who you really are beneath your “disguises,” Gemini. But upcoming astrological omens suggest that could change. Are you ready to reveal more about your true selves? Would you consider expanding the circle that is allowed to see and appreciate your full range and depth?
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Playwright Tennessee Williams once spent an evening trying to coax a depressed friend out of his depression. It inspired him to write a poem that began like this: “I want to infect you with the tremendous excitement of living, because I believe that you have the strength to bear it.” Now I address you with the same message, Cancerian. Judging from the astrological omens, I’m convinced that you currently have more strength than ever before to bear the tremendous excitement of living. I hope this news will encourage you to potentize your ability to welcome and embrace the interesting puzzles that will come your way in the weeks ahead. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Are you finished dealing
with spacious places, vast vistas and expansive longings? I hope not. I hope that you will continue to explore big bold blooming schemes and wild free booming dreams until at least April 25. In my astrological opinion, you have a sacred duty to keep outstripping your previous efforts. You have a mandate to go further, deeper and braver as you break out of shrunken expectations and push beyond comfortable limitations. The unknown is still more inviting and fertile than you can imagine.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Between December 5 and 9, 1952, London was beset with heavy fog blended with thick smog. Visibility was low. Traffic slowed and events were postponed. In a few places, people couldn’t see their own feet. According to some reports, blind people, who had a facility for moving around without the aid of sight, assisted pedestrians in making their way through the streets. I suspect that a metaphorically comparable phenomenon may soon arise in your sphere, Virgo. Qualities that might customarily be regarded as liabilities could at least temporarily become assets. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your allies are always important, but in the coming weeks they will be even more so. I suspect that they will be
By Rob Brezsny
your salvation, your deliverance and your treasure. So why not treat them like angels, celebrities or celebrity angels? Buy them ice cream, concert tickets and fun surprises. Tell them secrets about their beauty that no one has ever expressed before. Listen to them in ways that will awaken their dormant potentials. I bet that what you receive in return will inspire you to be a better ally to yourself.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In the coming
weeks, I suspect that you will be able to find what you need in places that are seemingly devoid of what you need. You can locate the possible in the midst of what’s apparently impossible. I further surmise that you will summon a rebellious resourcefulness akin to that of Scorpio writer Albert Camus, who said, “In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. No matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger— something better, pushing right back.”
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In 1936, Herbert C. Brown graduated from the University of Chicago with a bachelor’s degree in science. His girlfriend Sarah Baylen rewarded him with the gift of a $2 book about the elements boron and silicon. Both he and she were quite poor; she couldn’t afford a more expensive gift. Brown didn’t read the book for a while, but once he did, he decided to make its subject the core of his own research project. Many years later, he won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discoveries about the role of boron in organic chemistry. And it all began with that $2 book. I bring this story to your attention, Sagittarius, because I foresee you, too, stumbling upon a modest beginning that eventually yields breakthrough results. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In 20 B.C., Rome’s most famous poet was Quintus Horatius Flaccus, known to us today as Horace. He prided himself on his meticulous craftsmanship, and advised other writers to be equally scrupulous. Once you compose a poem, he declared, you should put it aside for nine years before deciding whether to publish it. That’s the best way to get proper perspective on its worth. Personally, I think that’s too demanding, although I appreciate the power that can come from marshalling so much conscientiousness. And that brings me to a meditation on your current state, Capricorn. From what I can tell, you may be at risk of being too risk-averse; you could be on the verge of waiting too long and being too cautious. Please consider naming a not-too-distant release date. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Luckily, you have an inventive mind and an aptitude for experimentation. These will be key assets as you dream up creative ways to do the hard work ahead of you. Your labors may not come naturally, but I bet you’ll be surprised at how engaging they’ll become and how useful the rewards will be. Here’s a tip on how to ensure that you will cultivate the best possible attitude: Assume that you now have the power to change stale patterns that have previously been resistant to change.

Maybe you should give yourself permission to beam with majestic self-confidence. Picture this: Your posture is regal, your voice is authoritative and your sovereignty is radiant. You have identified precisely what it is that you need and want, and you have formulated a pragmatic plan to get it.Y Homework: In what circumstances do you tend to be smartest?
