Cells vs. Cells Editor: In the Jan 31 cover story, “Unspoken Dangers,” the doctors omitted an important and pervasive environmental risk for pregnant women: electromagnetic frequencies from wireless devices. Fetal exposure to cell phones and laptops pose a significant risk that a child will be born with health problems. But don’t take my word for it. A 2008 study published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health by the UCLA School of Public Health found that children exposed to cell phones in the womb showed a 40 percent higher risk of borderline behavior problems. Environment and Health, Inc. reviewed hundreds of peer-reviewed studies that examined the potential health threats associated with cellular device use. John Wargo, Yale professor and lead author of the study, found that, “The scientific evidence is sufficiently robust showing that cellular devices pose significant health risks to children and pregnant women.” These risks include diminished learning, diminished reaction time, reduced memory accuracy, hyperactivity and diminished cognition.
A 2012 study from the University of Sienna, Italy, found that exposure to the electromagnetic fields from laptop use of “laptop” computers induces currents in the fetus that are considered risky for tumor development. In addition, Scientific Reports last year documented a study that demonstrated that mice exposed to an active cell phone during pregnancy gave birth to pups that displayed long-lasting behavioral and brain abnormalities. There are many more such studies from all over the world that might give Dr. Cherrie Anderson a clue as to why autism, ADD and infertility are on the rise. I find it interesting and shocking that women are not informed about exposure to wireless frequencies at all. They encounter them all day every day yet are being cautioned about pumping gas or eating a tuna sandwich. Beverly Filip, Eureka

their own religion on their government, we see the mayor of our county’s largest town arrogantly mixing his own religion with city government in the city of Eureka (“Blog Jammin’,” Jan. 31). Mayor Jager sounds a lot like George Bush when he is quoted in this paper as responding to the possibility of a lawsuit with the famous words, “Bring it on!” As it stands, the court will decide whether or not a mayor’s
prayer breakfast provided in official capacity by the mayor for the faithful of the community is constitutional. In the meantime, I’d like to see a less demeaning and dismissive tone taken by the mayor in public utterances related to the person bringing the suit and her attorney who are, after all, pursuing their own rights in a perfectly legal and acceptable fashion. Jean Munsee, McKinleyville
Worth a Try Editor: I sincerely hope Betty Chinn’s daycare for the homeless on Seventh and C streets is a great success (“Waiting for Chinn,” Jan. 3). It will provide an opportunity for those who really want to get off the streets and lead a healthy and productive life. “Broken Eureka” needs some major fixin’ and at least some good will come from this endeavor, as opposed to not trying at all. It’s great that churches and others are finally rallying around Betty in a big way, after her three decades of courageous service to others. Ah, the blessings of celebrity, and Betty must be delighted for the support this has brought her mission. I understand that some businesses in the daycare’s neighborhood are voicing their concerns regarding potential problems or an influx of transients to their area. These are well founded. Probably only a portion of the homeless cause the theft, vandalism, public urination/defecation, etc. that trouble neighborhoods. As a longtime resident of Old Town, I have had my car broken into twice (after taking precautions), have been approached too often by threatening persons with psychotic behaviors, aggressive panhandlers and raging meth addicts. This is proportionate to the increasing influx of
transients from within and without Humboldt County. If I could afford, on a retired nurses’ fixed income, to move to a safer area — it would be done now. In all likelihood, it’s probably better for the greater good that downtown Eureka is the “go to” designated place — safely away from schools, churches, other businesses and family neighborhoods. It’s interesting to note how people speak up when they perceive their own places of work and homes are threatened by the invading homeless — obviously with good reason! All the same, Betty Chinn and friends, it’s honorable that you try to make a dent in this staggering human misery. Cheri Corell, Eureka
Guns Just Practical Editor: Marcy Burstiner expressed interest in why people buy guns (“Recoil,” Media Maven, Jan. 24). For me, owning a gun doesn’t invoke either the mystic sexiness John Bennett describes or the fear that Burstiner posits. It’s more prosaic, more like “Well, yeah, what’s your point?” Most of my family takes guns for granted. My brother and sister-in-law shoot competicontinued on next page

continued from previous page tively. When I was growing up, my paternal grandfather and maternal grandmother both hunted deer. (My grandma also shot squirrels. Not like chicken, more flavorful. Benefits from a dark roux.) Many family members own guns, and no one thinks it odd. Our high school had a rifle club. We went target shooting and studied gun safety. My sister and I shot handmade paper targets on a hay bale. We knew the rules and followed them strictly. None of this gun-involvement was full of heavy meaning; it was just fun. In graduate school I lived in a tough part of Oakland, so it made sense to have a handgun. I suppose you could characterize that as getting one out of fear, but I didn’t actually feel fear, either of possible home invaders or of the gun itself. It was just a practical thing to do. Obviously you have to be careful. I’m a pretty good shot, but even so, I probably wouldn’t shoot somebody who was breaking into my house unless they were close enough that I wouldn’t miss. So, there’s the pragmatic gun owner. If guns weren’t infused with so much drama, if owning a gun were more routine, more ordinary, maybe weird folks would be less inclined to try to take the spotlight by shooting people. Deanna Beeler, Arcata
Charters Can Hurt Editor: The appeal of opening a charter school where innovative teaching is encouraged is understandable (“Charter School Rift,” Jan 24). But proponents of charter schools would do well to take a realistic look at some of the negative effects of charter schools. First of all, charter schools are not required to have any unions, including teachers’ unions. Many people think that union wages are too high. But think of the costs of unemployment, of providing medical care to the uninsured. Think of the dollars that no longer enter the local economy. Union jobs matter, and whenever a new charter school opens, union jobs are lost. Second, think of the playing field. Is it right to compare a charter school’s test scores to a public school’s when the charter school clearly has so few special education students, English learners, and children who are unmotivated to learn due to a lack of role models? Is it even reasonable to compare test scores of schools attended by privileged, motivated children to those schools that take all students? The reasonable answer is “No,” but the comparisons continue. Schools’ test scores are published with little or no regard for the impact of class, race or language on those very test scores. And is it then
6 North Coast Journal • Thursday, Feb. 7, 2013 • northcoastjournal.com
fair to reward charter schools with more money for higher test scores? Finally, to be educated by excellent teachers in a clean, well maintained school that has enough textbooks and technology should be the right of every child in this country. The way to provide that right and put an end to the reality of “good” schools and “bad” schools is to reform school funding. Leslie R. Leach, Eureka
Clean Water Victory Editor: In Benjamin Fordham’s “Reincarnating the Pulp Mill” story (Jan. 31), his statement, “According to a 1989 Surfrider Foundation lawsuit, the Samoa mill and a second pulp mill … used to dump a combined 40 million gallons of untreated wastewater into the ocean every day,” fails to accurately convey the importance of this history. The 40 million gallons of wastewater in question contained excessive concentrations of biological oxygen demand and suspended solids, had a pH value outside of the permit limits, and contained dioxins and furans, extremely toxic chemicals created by the use of chlorine in the bleaching process used to turn brown pulp into white. Surfers in the area of the discharge suffered of skin rashes and nausea. As chairperson of the Humboldt chapter of Surfrider Foundation, I want to point out that the settlement won by Surfrider and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency was one of the largest penalties ever leveled under the Clean Water Act at the time. Money from the settlement went toward imple-
mentation and maintenance of an emergency telephone at the North Jetty, initial improvement of the Samoa Dunes National Recreation Area and the creation of the Humboldt Area Recreation Enhancement and Water Quality Fund, managed by the Humboldt Area Foundation and still providing grant funds today. The lawsuit resulted in permanent improvement to our coastal waters and air, a phone used to save lives and numerous enhanced recreational opportunities on and around Humboldt Bay. It was kind of a big deal — definitely bigger than your writer noted. Jennifer Savage, Manila
Remember, Part Two
Some mornings Poppa would skinny dip With his bar of Ivory before he went to work I used to peek through my bedroom curtains to see (you know) then I’d get shy and feel guilty for spying on my very own grandfather at seven in the morning. I’d chase lightning bugs by myself At night and I’d catch them I put a bunch of them in a jar one night And woke up with every one of them cold dead the next day And I felt real guilty for that So then I just caught them and peeked through the crack Between my pointy ﬁnger and my thumb at their glow Then I let them go Those weeping willows were cut down three years ago And Nana and Poppa are going to buy a condo in town Even though town is creeping its way Right towards them and the country. Nana sold her Dodge and bought a Honda And Poppa doesn’t drive now And I haven’t seen the place since Christmas before last And I’m out here in California Where no one’s ever heard of a whippoorwill And certainly nobody knows the joy of lying down In a wet bathing suit on hot concrete On your belly Then pushing up with both hands And having that bristly feeling of the concrete Picking at your one-piece. And the water steaming right back up to the North Carolina sky. – Amy Barnes

ence over public policy for a group whose members are not elected, appointed or even vetted by the board of supervisors, and whose meetings are held in private. In a recent phone interview, ad hoc group member Bob Higgons, who also represents the Humboldt Association of Realtors, would talk about the group’s activities only in the most general terms. He explained (somewhat apologetically) that with such a combustible mix of ideologies, the group dynamic is delicate. Discretion is necessary, he said, “in order to preserve the collaborative nature of the group.” He wouldn’t even say where their meetings take place. At the board’s request the group has agreed to continue in its advisory capacity for other, more contentious elements of the general plan update, such as water resources and land use. Is the secrecy and lack of accountability cause for concern? “I don’t have a problem with it,” said Board Chair Ryan Sundberg. He argued that the group is merely refining the planning commission’s draft, which incorporated input from more than 1,000 people and hundreds of public meetings. And he feels that the newfound spirit of collaboration between opposing groups deserves respect. Members include Lee Ulansey, chairman of the developer-friendly Humboldt Coalition for Property Rights, along with Jen Kalt and Dan Ehresman, who represent the environment-friendly Healthy Humboldt Coalition. Both groups were formed specifically to influence the general plan update, from opposite ends of the spectrum. Now their leaders are working together. “People have said it over and over that probably 85-90 percent of the comments we’ve gotten [on the general plan update] have come from the people who are involved in this group,” Sundberg said. “So it holds a lot of weight.” Third District Supervisor Mark Lovelace said that he appreciates the group’s work, continued on page 9

firstname.lastname@example.org ver the past few months, Humboldt County’s on-and-onand-ongoing general plan update process has taken on a tenor that’s practically unprecedented in its 13-year history: harmony. This is a community with passionate disagreements over zoning and land use, with one faction advocating private property rights and laissez-faire regulation while the other promotes smart growth and sustainability. And so updating the general plan — the document that will guide land use decisions in the unincorporated parts of the county for the next two decades — has at times resembled trench warfare. But that’s all changed thanks to an alliance so unlikely that a couple months back we half-jokingly called it a sign of the apocalypse. Known simply as the General Plan Update Ad Hoc Working Group, the informal committee has brought homebuilders, realtors and developers together with staunch environmentalists and trail advocates. With a membership of about 15 (it fluctuates), the group has been gathering privately since November to pore over the minutia of the planning commission’s draft of the general plan, and it has presented the county board of supervisors with its own policy recommendations. (Wherever the group couldn’t reach a consensus it presented two options.) So far the ad hoc group has worked its way through just one of the general plan’s 11 elements: circulation, which addresses transportation facilities such as roads, rails, trails and airports. Supervisors and staff have shown the group a remarkable amount of gratitude — and deference. At the last few supervisors’ meetings on the general plan update, the ad hoc group’s recommendations have been presented side-by-side with the planning commission’s draft language. And in straw vote after straw vote the supervisors have unanimously chosen to adopt the ad hoc group’s wording. This is a tremendous amount of influ-

Meet our neighbor “Murphy’s is a 30 second walk from my studio to their front door!” says Mark, who shops at Murphy’s newest store, Westwood, on Alliance Rd. in Arcata. “I like the hometown feel with a sense of community where I meet local people…the people from my neighborhood. Murphy’s offers organic and local products. I like that!” Mark can zip over to Murphy’s for a salad from the fresh salad bar, hot soup or groceries and an entrée for dinner. So many choices! Mark started as a fisheries major at Humboldt State University then changed his major to art. In the mean time he has been a chef at The Eureka Inn and helped cook 500 meals at a time for St. Vincent de Paul’s holiday dinners. He is currently a chef at The Bayfront Restaurant, specializing in Italian dishes. Throughout Mark’s cooking career he has always had his heart set on pottery. Color! Color! Color! Reds and yellows. Since making his first “pinch pot” in Kindergarten, Mark has been hooked on ceramics. “I like to make pottery that tells a story,” he says. He designs and makes custom ceremonial vases with pictorial images for weddings, anniversaries and memorials. Mark has three children, Shelley, Hannah and John. John, who is three years old, already delights in making clever small bowls and cups. After working up a potter’s appetite, Mark takes a hold of John’s little hand for the short walk to Murphy’s for a celebratory treat!

continued from page 7 too, though he pointed out that it hasn’t really changed much. Not yet, anyway. “They’re putting the same thing in different words.” To Lovelace this suggests that the original process — the one that resulted in the planning commission’s draft plan — was fundamentally good. But he worries that as the process continues down this detour, people might lose sight of the guiding principles. These include focusing development mostly (though not exclusively) in urban areas served by existing infrastructure. “It’s getting harder to figure out what the vision is behind the general plan,” he said. The ad hoc group has taken pains to avoid being seen as a shady special interest. In a series of press statements, as well as in comments to the board, representatives have made assurances. “We want to clarify that the only intent of the working group is to coalesce and streamline input on the general plan update to the board of supervisors from key stakeholder groups,” the group declared in a recent statement. Of course, that was also the intent of the planning commission. Last year the board of supervisors was scheduled to review the planning commission’s draft and adopt a final plan before the year was out. But the draft plan proved controversial among developers and property rights advocates, who argued that their voices hadn’t been heard. In the fall, Sundberg and fellow supervisors Rex Bohn and Virginia Bass put the brakes on the process. They expressed reservations about the draft plan’s complexity, size and content and called for yet more community input. “I thought we were going to be done in September,” Senior Planner Martha Spencer said last week. “And having this ad hoc group complicates it because we had a fairly tight schedule and now that’s kind of blown. That’s out the window. “ Ehresman, who was recently named executive director of the Northcoast Environmental Center, said that while the group is diverse it does not claim to represent the entirety of public opinion. “I would very much encourage other folks … to weigh in with their perspective,” he said. What the group has done is defuse tension by getting people “to have a mindful discussion rather than lobbing grenades,” Ehresman added. In some cases, fights have been avoided by sidestepping hot-button language. For example, at the Jan. 14 meeting the group recommendations included changing the name of one policy item from “Orderly Development” to “Circulation System” and crossing out a reference to “an orderly pattern of land use.” This sparked some head-scratching and a brief debate among
supervisors, with Lovelace saying “orderly development” is the whole point of planning while Bohn argued that development should be “market-driven.” (Ultimately, all five supes agreed that removing the words in this particular item didn’t change its meaning, so they approved the changes and moved on.) The group’s input may be peaceful, but it’s not fast. It took more than two months to work through the circulation element, and while staff and supervisors have repeatedly thanked its members for their efforts, some are worried that their ideas could further muddle and prolong the already unwieldy update process. The group’s latest and most enthusiastic proposal was for a countywide transportation plan, a new document that would clarify development guidelines for roads and streets. “To date, it is the group’s biggest priority,” it declared in a statement. But is a new document necessary, or even helpful? Staff was diplomatic but concerned. “We are very enthusiastically supporting this. We think it’s a good idea,” enthused Spencer at the Jan. 28 supervisor’s meeting on the general plan update. But at the same time, she said, the plan might duplicate work that rightfully belongs in the circulation element. It might also be putting the cart before the horse since you can’t properly plan transportation routes until you know what population densities are planned, and that’s something that will be spelled out in the general plan. Isn’t that what staff should be spending its time on? Kevin Hamblin, the county’s new director of planning and building, agreed. “Even if things went well [the ad hoc group’s transportation plan] would probably hold us back at least until September 2014,” he said. Group member Jen Rice, who works as director of community strategies for the Humboldt Area Foundation, stepped up to the lectern and said that the group envisioned a consultant team developing the transportation plan, rather than county staff. But there’s currently no such team and no funding to hire one. Lovelace said that with the current pace of the general plan update, “I don’t see any reason to expect that we won’t still be working on it a year from now. I seriously hope that I’m wrong.” The group recently announced that it plans to hire a facilitator to help streamline its work. The next element it plans to make suggestions on is infrastructure, but it asked the board to skip ahead to the noise element at the next general plan meeting, on Feb. 11, because it needs more time. ●

Searching For Jason
On Friday Jan. 25, Arcata resident Jason Lovell told friends he was going to see a movie. No one has seen him since. He was reported missing by his coworkers at the HSU bookstore after he missed a couple shifts. A flier distributed on social media says: Distinguishing marks: Barcode tattoo on calf and cartoon elephants on bicep. Reddish-brown beard. Jason’s hair is buzzed and he has a slight beer belly. He has been couch-surfing and has no apartment or house. … His car has remained untouched with his belongings in it. His phone is assumed off or dead and he has not posted to Facebook since Friday. A press release from the Arcata Police Department issued Wednesday states that “Lovell has a history of mental health issues and is considered at risk.” Lovell, 32, is described as a white male adult, 5’8” tall, weighing 150 pounds with short brown hair, hazel eyes and a short reddish brown beard. Please call the Arcata Police Department at 707822-2424 if you have any information. Recovery effort email: email@example.com. ●

But cannabis users are hilarious. I also like to point out the ridiculousness of prohibition. I know you’ve done a bunch of shows in southern Humboldt. Is this your first time in NoHum? I used to do shows at The Sweetriver Saloon way back in the ‘90s. I once found half of a huge joint in the parking lot of the [Bayshore] Mall. That was a good day. I don’t think NoHum has had a regular comedy show for years. Lately I have been producing my own shows — my friends in the area helped me set up this one. The fact that you played the Sweetwater tells me you’ve been at this a long time. Yeah. I started telling jokes for money in 1988. How has the stand-up scene changed? Is there some sort of new revival? It seems that way here. Recessions always make comedy more popular. But there are now many different ways to be funny: podcasts, Internet videos, memes, songs. Comedy is booming, but not just standup.

Humboldt luthiers handing down a treasured tradition Story and photos by Bob Doran
hey’re tucked away in workshops large and small, in converted garages and industrial parks all over the county. They’re Humboldt’s luthiers, skilled craftsmen turning slabs of wood into exquisite acoustic and electric guitars, banjos, mandolins and less familiar stringed instruments. Their market is international, ranging from world famous musi cians to casual pickers. A few of our local luthiers have been pursuing this musical trade for decades, building strong businesses and passing along what they’ve learned to apprentices. Now the next generation is doing the same. Two of the most influential pioneers in Humboldt instrument making got going in the early 1970s. That’s when Wildwood Music founder Mark Platin began building traditional banjos and building a business in Arcata. Around the same time, Steve Helgeson of Moonstone Guitars was setting up shop in an old shingle mill in Moonstone Heights, teaching himself how to craft fanciful electric and acoustic guitars. Both businesses flourished, and Platin and Helgeson became employers, teaching others the trade. Some of them ended up setting up shop on their own. All the luthiers we visited for this photo essay have worked for Wildwood or Moonstone (or someone schooled in their traditions); some have worked for both. And forget the six degrees of separation rule when it comes to these Humboldt luthiers — they’re all directly connected, one way or another.

WILDWOOD MANUFACTURING 2. Production Manager Jeff Callahan heads a small staff carving out bodies and necks, a dozen or so at a time, using a CNC (computer numerical control) milling machine.
1. “We’re not really luthiers,” says Bruce Hamilton, head of Wildwood Manufacturing. The woodshop, located in an Arcata industrial park, specializes in what’s known in the industry as OEM, original equipment manufacturing. The company ships around 600 unfinished guitar necks and bodies a month to small-scale guitar builders, with about 20 percent going to the international market.
3. A computer-driven router carves out a guitar neck, a process that takes about eight minutes. 4. A polymer “island” attached to the carving machine holds the wood in place. This one is for a guitar body for left-handers based on the classic Fender Stratocaster form. 5. Jose Meza sets a fret in a guitar neck. 6. Steve Smith uses an electric sander to smooth any roughness left by the milling machine. 7. Ken Beidleman holds a 4-string Saint Blues cigar box guitar, built in Memphis using a neck made in Arcata by Wildwood.

M. WALKER GUITAR COMPANY 1. Michael Walker sands the frets on the neck of a classic Martin guitar he’s repairing in his Arcata workshop. Born in Georgia, Walker got his start in the luthier business about seven years ago, first working in Phil Crump’s shop, then setting up his own instrument spray finishing shop in Arcata. Walker left Humboldt a couple of years ago for Savanna, Ga. to apprentice with legendary guitar builder/ repairman Randy Wood, whose client list includes the likes of Elvis Presley, Bill Monroe, Eric Clapton and Keith Richards.
3. Walker also refurbishes and converts instruments like this 1920s-era Vega tenor banjo with a “Whyte Laydie” pot. He’s replacing the four-string neck with a new five-string bluegrass-style neck that most players prefer today. 4. Walker returned to Arcata earlier this year to set up shop upstairs from Wildwood Music. While cleaning up the space, he came across an early brochure for Wildwood Banjo Company, the business that started out in the building. The photo shows Wildwood founder Mark Platin at work. The master banjo builder is still quite active: After selling off the OEM portion of his business in 2008, he moved Wildwood Banjos to Bend, Ore. where he continues building traditional open-back and bluegrass banjos. ●

hen I watch Patricia Cambianica’s hands kneading, shaping and cutting pasta dough, I feel her hands are my hands too. And when I work at those tasks, I feel that my hands are also the hands of generations of women who have been bringing their personal touch to this timeless craft. There is joy every step of the way, from where the adventure begins, with mixing the ingredients into a dough, to where it ends with tasting the pasta dish. Simple tagliatelle al burro e parmigiano (with butter and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese) and complex lasagne alla bolognese start at the same place with
a pasta dough that contains eggs, giving it a pale golden color. Some people find making pasta intimidating. The solution, however, is simple: Make a small amount of dough, half of a recipe perhaps, and give yourself and your hands time to get acquainted with the new task. Also, do not try your hand at making pasta when you are under time pressure. Anxiety has a tendency to make the small hill of dough look like a mountain. If you are thinking that, being Italian, I surely learned to make pasta on my mother’s knee, let me disabuse you of your romantic notion. My mother was an egg pasta wizard, but preferred to keep the kitchen, her kingdom, free of appren-
tices. I learned complex to make pasta undertakings, as an adult by like lasagne experimenting or ravioli. Or on my own, your creativwith some ity can follow help from my a colorful memory, as direction to snippets of make green preparation or pink pasta, I glimpsed in with, respecmy mother’s tively, spinach kitchen are reor red beets corded in my added to the Frittata with leftover pink tagliatelle and brain. Some dough (see homemade robiola cheese photo by Simona Carini reading and the recipe on a few online this page). videos helped direct my experiments. I Patricia, like my mother, describes started with egg pasta dough and moved pasta amounts not in terms of weight but on to eggless dough, which is used to in terms of how many eggs are used to make, for example, orecchiette (I will talk make the dough. Every Sunday morning, more about eggless pasta in some future my mother would make quattro uova di column). pasta, four eggs of pasta dough, more Patricia learned to make pasta from than enough for that day’s lunch for our her family. “I grew up making pasta by family of four. She kneaded, rolled and cut feel.

started in a stand-up mixer. When eggs and flour have come together to form a shaggy dough, she empties the mixer bowl onto the wooden table. The wisdom of her hands takes it from there. “I like being completely not rushed, completely there for the pasta, and you kind of get into a rhythm and you relax and you feel the pasta,” she said. “It’s kind of a little meditative for me. It really makes you calm down and focus.” Patricia has a small hand-cranked pasta machine, made in Italy by Imperia. As she turns the handle with her right hand, her left hand gently but firmly accompanies the wide strip of dough on its journey away from the rollers. The wisdom that comes from mindful repetition is once again on display. Physical contact with the dough breeds intimacy, the visceral knowledge of what feels right. Such intimacy allows the hands to know when the dough is of the right consistency, when the pasta is of the right thickness, when a bit more flouring is needed. In Patricia’s words: “with pasta, it’s all in the feel.” When I spoke with Patricia about people’s fear of making pasta, her advice was identical to mine: start with a small
amount, “a couple of eggs. Do it once or twice a week and just get the feel for the pasta.” Once your hands become intimate with the dough, how it feels to the touch, how it stretches, how it yields to pressure and resists to it, how your fingers glide over or stick to it, how it lives to
be shaped according to your ability and mood, you’ll understand why I say that making pasta by hand is joyful. La Trattoria serves dinner Thursdays through Sundays 5:30 to 9 p.m. 30 Sunnybrae Center in Arcata, (707) 822-6101 for reservations. ●
Pasta Dough with Roasted Red Beet Inspired by the recipe for farfalle rosa (pink bow ties) in Pasta fatta in casa (Homemade Pasta) by Paola Loaldi Ingredients and Method: A small red beet (3 oz.) 1 egg 1 cup all-purpose flour 2 Tablespoons semolina flour Pinch of salt Cut greens off an inch or so above the surface of the beet. Wrap beet in foil and roast in a 375 degree oven until tender. Unwrap, cool slightly, and slip the skin off. (In the interest of energy efficiency, I
recommend oven-roasting a bunch of beets: You can use the other beets in many ways, making a salad or a frittata — see “Not So Messy,” Table Talk, June 17, 2010.) Chop beet roughly in a food processor. Add the egg to the processor bowl and process some more to create a creamy combination, then add that to combined flours and salt. Add a bit of water or more flour, as needed, to obtain a supple dough. Wrap the dough and let it rest for half an hour or so, then roll and shape as preferred. I usually use it to make tagliatelle.

Net Smart: How to Thrive Online By Howard Rheingold The MIT Press
Howard Rheingold has a white moustache. He dresses like the prototype of an aging hippie, and he’s been involved in personal computer theory and practice for 30 years. His social network experience goes back to one of the earliest examples, San Francisco’s legendary The Well. Younger readers may know him as the author of Smart Mobs: The Next Social Revolution. So he’s positioned to speak to several generations, including boomers, on “how to thrive online.” But this is not a simple how to book full of bullet points and illustrations (though it does include some cartoons reminiscent of R. Crumb). Rheingold writes about how to use the net “mindfully,” which includes critically. Two of his five web literacies (along with attention, participation and collaboration) are net smarts and crap detection. Still, his stance is mainly positive on the benefits and the social change inherent in what he calls the shift from group to network. His approach is historical as well as theoretical, philosophical and practical. He pays attention to how adventures in cyberspace change individuals as well as society, and he considers several sides of those questions. He can be acerbic as well as inspirational. One of his main assertions is that “the emerging digital divide is between those who know how to use social media for individual advantage and collective action, and those who do not.” Originally the “digital divide” meant the distance between the individuals and communities who could financially afford to fully participate in cyberspace and those who couldn’t. That divide still exists, especially as full participation seems to require frequent new purchases of the latest devices. The author’s personal experience — and those from his students and children — provide rare perspective on cyberspace. This is also a kind of guidebook to future practice as Rheingold emphasizes the ethics of good networking and social collaboration. So part of his advice, in addition to how to manage information overload and survive on Facebook, is how to be a good participant and network citizen. Plus his emphasis on the skills of attention and critical thinking are useful beyond cyberspace. The book is pretty clearly written, but it’s not a fast read because there is at least one interesting idea on every page and, depending on individual net experience, a number of challenging topics. It’s also meant to be read beginning to end, which is not exactly the Internet way. It’s about 250 pages of text plus lots of notes and a mediocre index, but what’s missing is a sorely needed glossary of terms as they are used in the book. Overall it’s that paradox of the instant-obsolescence computer age: a keeper. — William Kowinski

“WHERE THE BOATS DANCE” MIXED MEDIA BY LOUISA MCCOVEY
Cultural Transformation “River as Home” takes over the Graves Museum, showcases Native art By Jason Marak
t’s happened again. The Morris Graves Museum of Art has been transformed. In December, Peter Santino took over the space, filling all of the upstairs galleries with his conceptual installation “The Exhibition at the End of Time, at the End of the World.” Now “River as Home” has poured in, filling the museum from top to bottom. The invitational exhibition, sponsored by the Humboldt Area Foundation’s Native Cultures Fund, marks the first time Native American art will occupy all of the museum’s exhibition space. “River as Home” is the realization of dual visions of Chag Lowry, program manager for the Native Cultures Fund. Lowry wanted a high profile event that would showcase all that local Native artists have to offer, and he saw the river as a unifying image. The process began about a year ago. One of his first moves was to tap well-known local artist Bob Benson as curator. The hope was that, in addition to increasing the visibility of art from local indigenous people — Wiyot,
Yurok, Karuk, Hupa, Tsnungwe, Tolowa and others — the exhibition would help raise awareness about the issues of water rights and water quality. “The river is the thing that has always connected everybody,” said Benson, who is of Tsnungwe ancestry. “It’s so central and inseparable. By talking about the river, you’re talking about all these different people, all these different tribes that live on the Klamath River and its tributaries, and you’re also talking about the health of the river. …The Klamath River has serious problems.” The final group of artists, more than 30 participants, started with a core group of six selected by Lowry: Brian Tripp, George Blake, Deborah McConnell, Karen Noble, Lyn Risling and Benson. The six worked up an invite list with Lowry. The plan was to “do the entire museum with the best work that we can get and the most diverse work we can get — young, old, traditional, contemporary, the works,” said Benson. As a result, the exhibition features emerging artists alongside older, more established artists — a situation that has the potential

of promoting an important dialog within the Native artist community. As the project developed, Lowry took on the role of exhibition director and Risling took on added responsibilities as a co-curator. The group also brought in recent Humboldt State graduate Brittany Britton as an assistant curator. Benson commended the help of many others in getting the show ready: “It really is a community thing.” Once the artists were selected, the curators were faced with the daunting task of figuring out how to incorporate all the diverse work into the museum space — from small and large canvases to baskets, regalia and a 700-pound canoe. There have been local exhibitions of Native art in the past, but nothing of this scale and scope. Seeing this range of work all in one place is impressive. “The show does not reflect similar experiences; it reflects diverse experiences,” said Benson, noting that the diversity is what makes the body of work so unpredictable and exciting. Whether you’re looking at tradional baskets or more modern, abstract
paintings, you’re likely to be surprised. Another impressive aspect is how the organizers managed to bring the disparate elements together in a cohesive, thematically interesting and informative way. Benson explained that the structure and organization mirror a ceremonial space. Where traditionally there would be a hearth in the center, “River as Home” features a central installation created by three of the show’s primary artists, with George Blake’s canoe, a six-foot tall, carved wood blade by Benson, and 13 suspended woodpecker sculptures by Brian Tripp. The installation ascends from floor to ceiling in the museum’s central rotunda. “On this centerline, the whole image of the world we’re creating turns,” said Benson. When people enter the museum, what they will see, as Benson envisions it, is “the cultural transformation of the building.” “River as Home” runs through March 23 at the Morris Graves Museum of Art (636 F Street in Eureka). The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday noon5 p.m. ●

THE UPSTAIRS GALLERY AT UMPQUA BANK FEATURES PLEIN-AIR OILS BY YUMA LYNCH IN THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY. “AS RESIDENTS OF THE NORTH COAST AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, THIS SMALL EARTH, WE SOMETIMES TAKE OUR SURROUNDINGS FOR GRANTED,” SAID LYNCH. “WE FORGET THAT THESE ROCKS AND FORESTS AND STREAMS ALL HAVE NAMES AND STORIES. PAINTING NATURE CAN REMIND US OF HOW IMPORTANT, UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL THE WORLD REALLY IS.” MEET THE ARTIST AT A RECEPTION ON FRIDAY, FEB. 8, DURING ARTS! ARCATA.
CAFÉ BRIO FEATURES PAINTINGS BY LAURA CHAPMAN WHITE DURING THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY. “WHEN I WAS YOUNG, I DREAMED OF A LIFE THAT HAD BEAUTY AND JOY,” SAID CHAPMAN WHITE. “I HAVE PAINTED MYSELF INTO A NEW ONE, FILLED WITH RICHNESS, COLOR AND STRENGTH. THESE WORKS ARE VISCERAL REMINDERS OF THE FACT THAT I CAN CHANGE MY REALITY. EVERY PAINTING STILL IN MY POSSESSION IS A WORK IN PROGRESS, BECAUSE I AM A WORK IN PROGRESS. THERE IS ALWAYS THE POSSIBILITY THAT SOMETHING NEW WILL HAPPEN. DREAM IS DESTINY.”
PHOTOGRAPHER THOMAS DUNKLIN CAPTURES THE MAJESTY OF THE REDWOOD FOREST IN A COLLECTION OF PANORAMAS RUNNING THROUGH FEBRUARY AT ARCATA SCOOP. DUNKLIN WORKED WITH HUMBOLDT STATE UNIVERSITY CANOPY ECOLOGISTS TO VISUALLY DOCUMENT THE BIODIVERSITY AND COMPLEXITY OF THE REDWOOD FOREST CANOPY. “WITH MY FIRST CLIMB INTO THE REDWOODS, I REALIZED THAT THE ONLY WAY TO ACCURATELY REFLECT THE SIZE AND SCALE OF THE REDWOODS WAS TO SHOOT MANY SHOTS AND STITCH THEM TOGETHER,” DUNKLIN EXPLAINED, THUS THE VERTICAL PANORAMAS. HE THEN SET THE PHOTOS IN FRAMES CRAFTED FROM SALVAGED OLD GROWTH REDWOOD 2X4S. A RECEPTION FOR THE “REDWOODS IN REDWOOD” EXHIBIT WILL BE HELD FRIDAY, FEB. 8, DURING ARTS! ARCATA.

Bobo’s Bigfoot Party, plus Jake’s uke, Afro-Cuban All Stars, Hot 8 Brass Band, Mardi Gras and a hootenanny for the blind By Bob Doran

YouTube offers an as an NFL linebacker, somewhat example of his songwriting, a ditty called shaggy, walks with a lumber“Snookum Cast” about a legendary plaster ing gait. Could it be … Bigfoot? Nah, the cast, allegedly of an oversized humanoid, trucker cap and big grin tell you it’s James made during a BFRO expedition in 2000, “Bobo” Fay, dead serious Squatch rewhich was featured on a TV show called searcher and star of Animal Planet’s FindAnimal-X. (Finding Bigfoot also follows ing Bigfoot, now heading into its fourth BFRO research.) season. Of course there are times when Also playing for the party: Phil and Bobo is Bigfoot. As noted by Wikipedia, the Blanx, a Sacramento/Long Beach trio “Fay has been searching for Bigfoot since with Bud Gaugh on drums (again) and the early 1980s and has many theories two members of Sacto band Sexrat, Marc about the creature. He often poses as “The Dirty German” Kallweit and Zach Bigfoot for re-creations of photos, due “Zippy” Goodin, founder of Yamarone’s to his close size (and Sexrat’s) label, resemblance to a Half of Nothing Sasquatch.” Records. Last but Friday at Six Rivnot least (and ers Brewery Bobo probably playing comes home to first), local rockers Humboldt to host a Peeping Thomas, “Squatchtastic Party” whose hits include in association with “All My Friends Finding Bigfoot (a TV Grow Marijuana” crew will shoot the and “Runnin’ From proceedings for an the DEA,” songs that upcoming episode). would fit right in on Musical guests the upcoming series include the Bigfoot Weed Country rock band, The Yama(see this week’s rone Brothers with Blog Jammin).

“Rolling In the Deep,” which Shimabukuro does on his latest album, Grand Ukulele. (The record also includes Jake’s take on “Over the Rainbow.”) Shimabukuro’s “Grand” Tour brings him to the Arkley Center Wednesday, Feb. 13. Also on Wednesday, an evening of classic and modern Cuban music at the Van Duzer Theatre with the Afro-Cuban All Stars. Founded in the early ‘90s by Juan de Marcos from the son revival band Sierra Maestra, who was instrumental in the whole Buena Vista Social Club phenomena, the All-Stars live up to their name. It’s an orchestra with a rotating line-up (currently 15 members) featuring a multigenerational cast, the brightest stars from the Cuban music world playing son and danzón and more modern timba. “What I’m trying to do is create a bridge between contemporary and traditional Cuban music,” says de Marcos. “I’m trying to mix both things so people can realize that Cuban music didn’t stop in time, that it developed in this long period when Cuban music disappeared from the market.” Get warmed up for Mardi Gras Saturday night at Humboldt Brews with Hot 8 Brass Band from the streets of New Orleans playing “roof-raising, jazz-infused, hip hop-fired marching band music, straight from the heart and fresh from the second line parades.” Yes, this is the real deal. The octet’s Life and Times Tour is in support of a sophomore album, The Life and Times of …, which includes an awesome version of “Ghost Town,” the classic two-tone ska song by The Specials. There are several parties on the actual Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday: The biggest is a Six Rivers with Samba na Chuva and friends (you’ll find specific details in this week’s calendar). The Logger Bar promises New Orleans music, free beads and masks, plus special drinks, jambalaya and King cake. Arcata United Methodist Church has a “traditional” pancake dinner that night, which is a biblical tradition I’ve not heard of. Or you could spend Fat Tuesday sipping wine with bluesman Buddy Reed at Libation. For hip hop heads, there’s Bay Area underground rap legend Gift Of Gab from Blackalicious Saturday night at the Red Fox Tavern, plus Max Bundles, The Hip Hop Lounge, Hiway, Distant Relatives, Green R Fieldz, Logic One, Dot Smith and the Pressure Anya DJs. Warm up Thursday at the Jambalaya with DJ Red spinning “old school” hip hop with help from Chocwon (Datablend) and Gabriel Groom. Red promises, “Eco-groovy dancefloor madness with no GMOs.” (I think that means all vinyl.) Red is back at the Jam for Flashback Friday, joined by DJs Zephyr, Maxwell and Jaymorg. The Riverwood continues its role as a
blues haven with the Lionel Young Band playing there Friday night. Mr. Young fronts the Boulder-based combo on guitar and violin (yes, blues violin), backed by a couple of horn players and a tight rhythm section. Good stuff. Double dose of Portlandishness Friday at the Alibi: There’s the alt. folky Hook and Anchor, formerly known as Clampitt Family, led by guitarist/harmonica player Erik Clampitt, and Sassparilla, who offer “liquor drenched roots-pop/rock.” Saturday at the Alibi, it’s the eighth annual Humboldt Council of the Blind Benefit Show, featuring Denim Vest, an ad hoc “seven-piece hootenanny,” playing covers “from Neil Young to Joy Division” and a few originals. Denim Vest starts with Splinter Cell — Jeff Langdon, Sean Ennis and Little Jimmy Forbes, but with Langdon on guitar and bass instead of drums. Filling things out: vocalist Chris Means, Gary Lee Silver from Monster Women on keys, Tommy Chase on banjo (thus the hootenanny) and Joaquin Dominick on drums. Opening the show: Pie in the Sky with Tommy and Dimitra Chase (formerly of Café Nooner) doing a few folk rock numbers. Humboldt Brews rocks — hard — Sunday with Georgia-based rockers Nashville Pussy, fronted by shredding guitarist Ruyter Suys and her husband, vocalist/ rhythm guitarist Blaine Cartwright. The band has built a strong reputation, particularly in Europe and Japan, with in-yourface songs about sex, drugs, rock, booze and more sex. It’s a bit surprising, but a song from the 1998 Nashville Pussy debut, Let Them Eat Pussy, garnered a Grammy nomination as Best Metal Performance. You want reggae? Tony Rebel and his protégé Queen Ifrica are at the Arcata Theatre Lounge Monday backed by the Elephant Dub Band with local support from the always irie Madi Simmons. Nocturnum is finally done with its ABC-imposed hiatus and back in action. Friday it’s bass time with the Women’s Empowerment Party and Fundraiser raising money to support women’s programs in Cambodia around issues including sex slavery, reproductive health care, domestic violence and HIV/AIDS awareness. Down with the cause: DJs Touch, Masta Shredda, Treemeista and Snoflake (aka DJ Lost). Saturday Where’s Queerbill hosts Out of the Closet and Onto D Floor, which in case you could not guess, is a queer (but straight-friendly) dance party. Then on Wednesday, Feb. 13, Whomp Whomp Wednesday celebrates its third anniversary with music by Justin McCauley, aka Roommate, from San Francisco, and Japanese EDM star Takeaki Maruyama, better known as Goth-Trad. No, he does not play Goth music or anything vaguely traditional — it’s dubstep. Whomp! ●

Sexy Brought Back It’s OK to admit it, boys and girls. You’ve hit a bit of a passion dry spell. It happens. But as the merciless Feb. 14 holiday of love fast approaches, the holes in your datebook look ever wider. Here’s how we’re gonna fix your lacking love supply, Humboldtian. You just need an opportunity to gather with other sexy individuals to showcase the power of your sexiest organ: your brain. And where will sexiness and braininess be in ample supply quite soon? Why at the return of Advocates for Choice’s Sexytime Trivia Night, taking place this Friday, Feb. 8, at Blue Lake Casino. You, Romeo and/or Juliet, will have the opportunity to play solo or in a group to answer questions — supplied by your superhot emcees for the night, Miss Gina and, uh, some other guy [Editor’s note: It’s Andrew Goff] — on a variety of steamy topics. You could win tantalizing prizes. And, if you really know your sex stuff, surely someone potentially special will be impressed. (Note: Blue Lake Casino is offering room discounts for Sexytime players. Ahem.) Here, let’s try some sample questions to get your brain ready: 1) What were the first condoms made of? 2) What is a frotteur? 3) Multiple choice!: How many orgasms did Masters and Johnson observe in order to amass their data? A) 500 B) 1,000 C) 10,000 D) 1 million See? That was totally easy, right? You’ve got this in the bag. After your sexy victory, the night will conclude with some sweaty, grind-worthy beats supplied by DJs Pressure Anya. Tickets for Sexytime Trivia are $15/$10 in advance and benefit Six Rivers Planned Parenthood. For more sexy info, email Chelsea at email@example.com. Yowza. Answers: 1) Animal bladders and intestines 2) Someone who achieves sexual arousal by touching or rubbing against another person without consent. 3) 10,000. – Andrew Goff

Weekend Schmeekend Aloha, amusement seekers! You know how you pick up the ol’ NCJ every Thursday (actually Wednesday) so that you can plan how best to utilize your fast approaching don’t-have-work-tomorrow evenings? Yeah, well you may have a problem this week. Consider taking Wednesday off. Because this coming Tuesday is the fattest of the year. First, let’s brush up on our Catholicism. This coming hump day, Feb. 13, is Ash Wednesday i.e. the beginning of Lent. Remember Lent? You know, it’s that thing that messes up Josh Hartnett’s game in 40 Days and 40 Nights. Right. As we know, in that movie the lead dude decides to remain celibate for the duration of Lent because, duh, God is honored by self sacrifice. And then it gets really funny (mainly to the bros that movie is targeted at) because he wants to have sex with girls but can’t. The message you’re supposed to take away: Lent is a bummer. That’s why God/humans made Mardi Gras, good Catholics’ last chance to get their ya-yas out. Since you probably didn’t escape to Brazil for the longer festivities, at least take advantage of Fat Tuesday. Here in Humboldt, Fat Tuesday reaches peak obesity every year at Six Rivers Brewery’s annual shindig, coming this year on Feb. 12 starting at 9 p.m For the seventh year, the lovely ladies of Samba Na Chuva will don Brazilian Carnival-esque attire and provide eye-demanding movement and color. They’ll be joined by another traditional Samba group, ToNaOnda, and backed by Steel Standing, a 10-piece steel pan ensemble. And just because you likely won’t be rocking the elaborate feathered headdresses and sequined bustiers of the night’s performers, you are not excused from gettin’ down. Make like a good Catholic and take it to the dirt. Ruin your Wednesday! Tickets for Fat Tuesday are $10 and since the 6RB beverages will be flowin’ the event is 21 and over. Get fat. – Andrew Goff

filmland Merciless Intensity “SON, THIS IS NO TIME TO ARM WRESTLE.” NAOMI WATTS AND TOM HOLLAND IN THE IMPOSSIBLE.
A harrowing natural disaster flick betters Sly, zombies and killer whales By John J. Bennett firstname.lastname@example.org
THE IMPOSSIBLE. The movie’s opening paints a placid, warm portrait of privileged family life. The attractive Bennett family arrives at an idyllic Thai beach resort, where they intend to spend Christmas. Then a wall of dirty water devastates the landscape and throws the family into a desperate effort to survive and reunite. In the wake of the disaster, mom Maria (Naomi Watts), gravely wounded, and eldest son Lucas (Tom Holland) find each other and manage to make their way to a drastically overwhelmed hospital. They have no way of knowing whether dad Henry (Ewan McGregor) and younger boys Thomas (Samuel Joslin) and Simon (Oaklee Pendergast) are alive or dead, much less where they might be. The movie builds on this central question in an ever-escalating, often heartbreaking maelstrom of tension, despair and near-misses. Based on the real-life experience of a Spanish family during the 2004 tsunami that killed more than 230,000 people and displaced nearly 1.7 million others in Southeast Asia, The Impossible combines stunning visual effects, seamless editing and raw-nerve performances to breathtak-
ing effect. Naomi Watts, Oscar nominated for this performance, defies expectations, and Holland carries his scenes with the self-assuredness and courage of a seasoned veteran. With the first distant rumble of waves, director J.A. Bayona (The Orphanage) creates an atmosphere of merciless intensity that never recedes. The tsunami sequence, an astonishing combination of computer continued on next page

generated imagery and practical effects, sweeps us up along with the protagonists. This set piece establishes the movie’s pace and tone: Even at rest and hopefully out of harm’s way, post-traumatic stress and dreadful anticipation weigh heavy on every character. There are moments that cynics (of which I am usually one) could call out as maudlin or pandering. The orchestral score swells in a way that expects a Pavlovian response, but Bayona keeps the narrative grounded, maintaining a delicate balance between the sentimental and the authentic. In the moments leading up to the climax, a woman near me in the theater wept openly. I can’t say I blame her. PG. 114m. BULLET TO THE HEAD. What do you expect? The big lummox who sat directly behind me, and then made a series of phone calls, really enjoyed it — mostly the gratuitous gunshot wounds and bare breasts. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy those things, too. But I also like good stories; this doesn’t have one. Jimmy Bonomo (Sylvester Stallone), a contract killer with an incongruous ethical code (what decent murderer doesn’t have one?), gets stiffed on the bill for a job, and then his partner gets killed. He teams up with a fish-out-of-water police detective (a likeable but miscast Sung Kang) to kill everybody involved, most of whom are New Orleans power players. Jimmy throws around a lot of casual anti-Asian remarks, the generic blues soundtrack blares, and the climactic fight sequence involves a mercenary and fire axes. It would require supreme inventiveness to turn this boilerplate script into something new and different. Director Walter Hill (The Warriors, Brewster’s Millions) is not possessed of that trait. Stallone knows how to fill a screen, and he’s enjoyable to watch, though he’s certainly not for all tastes. But even for a fan, he can’t fill the vacuum of story and style that is Bullet to the Head. R. 91m. WARM BODIES. Sixteen-year-olds rejoice: a romantic comedy about zombies! It’s a movie wrapped around a machine that manufactures money! To be fair, the voice-over narration (by lead actor Nicholas Hoult) is generally pleasant and quirky. Rob Cordry lends some comedy cred. And there’s Malkovich. The attitude of the storytelling feels pretty genuine, un-cynical. A shame the story it tells is predictable and bland. In the wake of the zombie apocalypse, the survivors of a nameless American city have created a walled-off stronghold downtown. Corpses and Skeletons control the outlands, using the airport as their

gathering point. R (Hoult), a nerd-corpse with a tendency to introspection, falls for Julie (Teresa Palmer) after he eats her boyfriend’s brain. Unfortunately for him, Julie’s dad (Malkovich) leads the war against the corpses, so their dating life is pretty strained. But her feelings for him gradually begin to reverse his zombification. Warm Bodies has competence and style but never produces enough laughs or scares to get anywhere. The young cast members do solid-enough work, but the story they service is too blandly linear, too familiar (perhaps because it’s based on Shakespeare’s all too familiar Romeo and Juliet). PG13. 97m. RUST AND BONE. Single dad Ali (Matthias Schoenaerts) moves to Antibes with his 5-year-old son. An occasional brawler, he gets a job as a nightclub bouncer, where he meets wayward orca trainer Stephanie (Marion Cotillard). After losing her legs in a whale incident, she remembers his kindness and calls on him to help her out of despair and loneliness. Their unlikely friendship becomes a casual sex arrangement. Ali starts fighting for money, and Stephanie discovers that she enjoys it. Rust and Bone is a meditation on the bond forged by two damaged people trying to make their way. Undeniably wellmade, impeccably acted and challenging, Jacques Audiard’s (A Prophet) latest doesn’t surprise or captivate as much as it is intended to. It succeeds for the most part, but I found my attention drifting during the overlong third act. R. 120m. —John J. Bennett
SIDE EFFECTS. This is allegedly the last Steven Soderbergh movie that will ever play in theaters. The Oscar-winning director of Out of Sight, Erin Brockovich, Traffic and the Ocean’s Eleven series has announced that he’s retiring from filmmaking. (His final film, barring a Jordanstyle un-retirement, will be a biopic about Liberace on HBO.) This thriller, starring Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum and Jude Law, takes on the prescription drug industry. R. 106m. IDENTITY THIEF. Jason Bateman, master of playing the long-suffering everyman, stars as a businessman who hits the road to track down the woman who stole his identity. But it turns out that the woman (Melissa McCarthy) is something of a loose cannon. Throat punching comedic hijinks ensue. R. 111m. HYDE PARK ON HUDSON. In this stately comedy, Bill Murray plays FDR, with Olivia Williams as his wife Eleanor, and Laura Linney as FDR’s assistant/mistress. In June 1939, with Europe on the brink of war with Germany, the first couple hosts the King and Queen of England for an awkward weekend in upstate New York. R. 94m.
Ocean Night returns to the Arcata Theatre Lounge Thursday with Surfing for Life, a documentary about senior surfers. Doors at 6:30 p.m. The following night, revel in the surreal Beatlemania of director Julie Taymor’s fantastical 2007 musical Across the Universe. PG13. 133m. Sunday’s family feature is the Pixar insta-classic Finding Nemo (2003). G. 100m. 6 p.m. And finally, next Wednesday’s Sci-Fi Pint and Pizza Night will feature Ed Wood’s comically disastrous 1956 film Plan 9 from Outer Space, a perennial contender for the worst movie of all time. 6 p.m.
ARGO. Ben Affleck helms a thrilling and surprisingly funny account of the 1979-80 Iran hostage crisis, starring alongside Alan Arkin, John Goodman and Bryan Cranston. R. 120m. CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: WORLDS AWAY 3D. Now you can watch the renowned performance troupe contort, trapeze and twirl from the relative comfort of a theater seat. PG. 97m. DJANGO UNCHAINED. Quentin Tarantino’s Blaxploitation western about an avenging slave in the antebellum South is the most audacious and entertaining film of the year. Starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio. R. 165m. THE HOBBIT. Exploiting the riches of Middle Earth once again, Peter Jackson’s bloated Lord of the Rings prequel (part one of three) looks beautiful but sags. PG13. 169m. MAMA. Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) stars as an aunt nurturing her two nieces, who have just reappeared in a decrepit cabin after being missing for years. Supernatural scares ensue. PG13. 100m. MOVIE 43. A solid candidate for worst movie of the 21st century, this all-star debacle features Oscar-winners debasing themselves for no apparent reason. R. 97m. LES MISÉRABLES. Tom Hooper brings the mega-selling Broadway musical (based on Victor Hugo’s French historical novel) to the screen with corny bombast. PG13. 157m. PARKER. Jason Statham phones in another generic action-star performance alongside J-Lo in this sub-par shoot-emup. R. 118m. SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence deliver Oscar-nominated performances, with a twist of mental instability, in this romantic-dramedy from director David O. Russell (The Fighter). R. 122m. ZERO DARK THIRTY. Director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) crafts a taut thriller that follows a young CIA agent’s (Jessica Chastain) dogged 10-year pursuit of Bin Laden. R. 157m. —Ryan Burns

“A Billion Here, A Billion There…” By Barry Evans
istorians quibble over whether the late Senate Minority Leader Everett McKinley Dirksen (18961969) actually said — on the Johnny Carson Show — “A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you’re talking real money.” Of course, nowadays real money has graduated to the trillions. At its first breath (welcome to the real world!), an American newborn assumes his or her share of the $16 trillion national debt, about $50,000 for each U.S. citizen. But what do numbers like this actually mean? Here are two analogies that might help get a handle on what a million, billion and trillion each entail: Count Seconds: Count to yourself, “One … two … three …,” using a watch if you need to, so that the time it takes to say each number is about one second. A healthy resting heartbeat takes a second, too. • 1 million equals about 12 days of seconds. Think about what you were doing 12 days ago (let’s say around Jan. 25) and imagine you’ve been counting since. • 1 billion is equal to 32-odd years of seconds, so if you’re 32 now, you’re a billion seconds old. That’s about how long it’s taken light to reach us from the fourth-brightest star in the night sky, Arcturus (which you can find by following the handle of the Big Dipper around to that obvious orange-tinted point of light). • 1 trillion seconds, 32,000 years, is about the elapsed time since the last of our Neanderthal cousins died. Grains of sand: To a geologist, a grain of sand is a rock particle with a diameter between 0.0625 and 2 millimeters (25.4

Language millimeters to the inch). Samoa Beach sand lies about midway between these two extremes, neither particularly fine nor coarse. • One million grains of Samoa Beach sand occupy two-thirds of a shoe box. • One billion grains fill a Honda Civic. • One trillion grains of sand, piled 21 inches deep, fit onto a football field. Want to take care of the national debt? Assume each grain is worth a dollar, then keep piling the sand until it reaches the top of the 30-foot goal posts. A whole other approach to large numbers, using exponents, is illustrated in the story told by the Persian poet Ferdowsi a thousand years (32 billion seconds) ago. The creator of the game of chess showed his invention to a powerful king, who was so impressed that he offered the inventor a gift. “How about you give me one grain of rice for the first square of the board, two grains for the second, four for the third, eight for the fourth square, and so on, for all 64 squares?” he said, guessing the king wasn’t good at math. “Well, I suppose,” replied the king, trying to act offended at being asked for such a modest gift. The inventor knew exactly what he was asking for, however: Two to the 64th power (less one) grains of rice. We’re talking about an Everest-sized mountain of rice, or around 1,000 times the current global rice production. In Ferdowsi’s tale, the inventor ended up with the kingdom! l Barry Evans (email@example.com) knows what a million steps feels like, after the month he and his wife spent walking 540 miles (2,000 steps per mile) along the Camino de Santiago through France and Spain.
