Samohi student starts new charity

CITY HALL City officials are working to find ways to hang on to 57 employees who would otherwise be left out in the cold after the loss of the local redevelopment agency and decision to close the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. Those that can’t find other placement within the city government and are not ready to retire are getting what help the Human Resources Department can give to prep them to look for work elsewhere, according to an information item released by HR officials. Any job losses would represent the first time that Santa Monica has had to let fulltime staffers go in two decades, despite the economic collapse in 2008. That stability is part of what makes Santa Monica special, both as an employer and as a place that provides top services to its residents, said City Councilmember Kevin McKeown. “Job stability has long been a lure helping us hire the very best workers for city jobs, and it is only because the state raided our redevelopment funds that we find ourselves having to print up pink slips, which we haven’t used in over 20 years,” McKeown said. That’s almost unheard of in California, a state that shed 1.4 percent of its state and local government workforce between June 2011 and June 2012 alone, according to a report by the California Budget Project. That was over twice the rate of the nation as a whole. At the same time, California’s private sector put on jobs quicker than the rest of the nation, with a 2.7 percent increase compared to the 1.8 percent seen across the country. Santa Monica avoided becoming just another negative statistic until it became clear in December 2011 that its redevelopment agency would join the nearly 400 others across the state on the budgetary chopping block. By Feb. 1, actions by the governor, legislature and California Supreme Court brought about the end of redevelopment agencies and the Department of Finance began taking back money held by those agencies that had

ical 16-year-old student. He runs cross country and track for Santa Monica High School, and until this past year, even played a musical instrument. But looking a little deeper, he is anything but typical. He is so dedicated to his sport that he runs 50 miles every week, and also mentors younger kids to become runners. His musical instrument was a bassoon, a rare choice among other teens his age. Maybe this kind of individuality is what led him to start his own charity, Pocket Change, on the campus of Samohi. Sardo says he doesn’t care about change, and is always trying to get rid of it. He figures if others feel the same, then why not empty our pockets for a good cause? Alex Vejar editor@smdp.com

Teachers flip for ‘flipped learning’ class model CHRISTINA HOAG Associated Press

SANTA ANA, Calif. When Timmy Nguyen comes to his pre-calculus class, he’s already learned the day’s lesson — he watched it on a short online video prepared by his teacher for homework. So without a lecture to listen to, he and his classmates at Segerstrom Fundamental High School spend class time doing practice problems in small groups, taking quizzes, explaining the concept to other students, reciting equation formulas in a loud chorus, and making their own videos while teacher Crystal Kirch buzzes from desk to desk to help pupils who are having trouble. It’s a technology-driven teaching method known as “flipped learning” because it flips the time-honored model of classroom lecture and exercises for home-

work — the lecture becomes homework and class time is for practice. “It was hard to get used to,” said Nguyen, an 11th-grader. “I was like ‘why do I have to watch these videos, this is so dumb.’ But then I stopped complaining and I learned the material quicker. My grade went from a D to an A.” Flipped learning apparently is catching on in schools across the nation as a younger, more tech-savvy generation of teachers is moving into classrooms. Although the number of “flipped” teachers is hard to ascertain, the online community Flipped Learning Network now has 10,000 members, up from 2,500 a year ago, and training workshops are being held all over the country, said executive director Kari Afstrom. Under the model, teachers make eightto 10-minute videos of their lessons using laptops, often simply filming the white-

board as the teacher makes notations and recording their voice as they explain the concept. The videos are uploaded onto a teacher or school website, or even YouTube, where they can be accessed by students on computers or smartphones as homework. For pupils lacking easy access to the Internet, teachers copy videos onto DVDs or flash drives. Kids with no home device watch the video on school computers. Class time is then devoted to practical applications of the lesson — often more creative exercises designed to engage students and deepen their understanding. On a recent afternoon, Kirch’s students stood in pairs with one student forming a cone shape with her hands and the other angling an arm so the “cone” was cut into different sections. “It’s a huge transformation,” said Kirch, SEE LEARNING PAGE 9

‘Hansel & Gretel’ nabs $19M, No. 1 at box office DERRIK J. LANG AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” cooked up $19 million in its opening weekend. Paramount’s R-rated action film update on the classic fairytale topped the box office, according to studio estimates Sunday. “Hansel & Gretel” features Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as grown-up renditions of the title characters battling witches with crossbows. Don Harris, Paramount’s president of distribution, blamed icy weather on the East Coast for the film’s not-so-bewitching debut. “We got dinged a little bit with the weather on Friday, but overall we’re pleased,” said Harris, who added that “Hansel & Gretel” performed solidly internationally, earning $25 million overseas. Other films opening over the weekend in the U.S. and Canada didn’t fare as well. The crime thriller “Parker,” starring Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez, debuted in fifth place with $7 million, while Relativity Media’s raunchy ensemble comedy “Movie 43” opened in the seventh spot with $5 million. Hollywood.com box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian noted that it was the first time box-office grosses were down over last year after four up weekends. Universal’s supernatural horror film “Mama” starring Jessica Chastain dropped to second place with $12.8 million in its second weekend.

Several best-picture Academy Awards contenders continued to benefit from Oscar buzz, as well as the motion picture academy’s decision to move up this year’s nomination announcement, giving nominees more time in theaters between the Jan. 10 nominations unveiling and the Feb. 24 ceremony. “Having an Oscar nomination is like holding a lottery ticket,” said Dergarabedian. “It could pay off on Oscar night, but it’s already paying big dividends now. All this time between the Oscar nominations and the telecast is prime time for these movies to capitalize on their higher profile.” “Silver Linings Playbook,” which is up for eight Academy Awards, came in third place over the weekend with $10 million. The film starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence is in its 11th weekend of release and earned $3 million overseas. “Zero Dark Thirty,” the Osama bin Laden manhunt drama also starring Chastain, dropped to fourth place with $9.8 million. It’s competing in five categories at the Academy Awards and nabbed $3.6 million internationally. “Django Unchained,” which is nominated for five Oscars, took in $5 million in sixth place, and the musical “Les Miserables,” which is up for eight Academy Awards, earned $3.9 million in the 10th position. It was the fifth weekend for both films. “Django” topped the international chart with $47.9 million in 65 total territories.

COMMUNITY BRIEFS CIVIC CENTER

Making Santa Monica safer for pedestrians The public is invited to attend a workshop for the city’s Pedestrian Action Plan on Monday. The workshop begins at 7 p.m. in the East Wing of the Civic Center. The goal of the plan is to explore ways to make walking “safe and enjoyable.” The city’s Pedestrian Action Plan, a project of the Land Use and Circulation Element, is about deciding where the dollars should be spent so that walking becomes the healthy, safe alternative it should be. People will be able to question the methods and suggest better ways to make the streets safer, by taking on such issues as: • Improved pedestrian safety and comfort. • Independence for young people and

seniors. • Improve health of all residents by walking. This ongoing program has already delivered some important information that community members need to know and talk about in this workshop: • 80 percent of the pedestrian collisions are happening at 20 percent of the intersections, particularly on certain streets such as Wilshire and Santa Monica boulevards. The highest pedestrian volumes are on and around the Third Street Promenade. • Emerging themes include visibility and crossing issues, sidewalk condition, signal timing, streetscape modification, facility design standards and funding for new facilities. To RSVP, call (310) 458-8341 or e-mail: transportation.management@smgov.net. Or, engage in the planning process at any time online at: pedplan.santamonicatownhall.org. — DAILY PRESS

Forever grateful Editor:

My father was a World War II United States Marine combat veteran who was able to return home to his family after the war was over. Our family was very fortunate for that. Many other men and women and their families were not as blessed. The Chain Reaction sculpture by the Civic Auditorium has always represented the brave, proud and proper strategic action taken to terminate the senseless killing of American soldiers and others by harnessing nuclear energy for the righteous objective of ending Japanese aggression. We all are forever grateful to those who showed the courage to act appropriately to conclude the war and bring our loved ones back home.

Sam Feinberg Santa Monica

Investing in our kids Editor:

Santa Monica-Malibu Unified certainly understands the importance of improving achievement for all groups (“Achievement gap a key concern for SMMUSD officials,” Jan 25). I have a suggestion: Decades of research have shown that the children of low-income groups do poorly in school, and the research has also told us why: Children of poverty have inadequate diets, poor health care, and little access to books at home, in school and in their communities; each of these has been shown to have a strong negative impact on school performance. The best teaching will have little effect when children are hungry, ill, and have little or nothing to read. The solution? Instead of investing in creating “higher standards” and increasing the amount of testing, let’s protect children from the effects of poverty: improve food programs, improve in-school health care (e.g. basic dental care, optometry, and more school nurses) and continue to invest in school and public libraries and librarians. We have evidence that this will work. For example, in a recent study of literacy in 40 countries, my colleagues and I reported that the presence of an adequate school library cancels the negative effect of poverty on reading achievement.

Santa Monica’s new Grand Canyon A PAIR OF NEW DEVELOPMENTS HAVE

just opened and eight more are proposed for just three short blocks of Lincoln Boulevard between the I-10 Freeway/Olympic Boulevard off-ramp and Santa Monica Boulevard. More are sure to follow in the future. In the 1600 block (between Colorado Avenue and Olympic,) Century West Partners (CWP) recently purchased four parcels on the east side of Lincoln including the Wertz Brothers Antique Mart property at 1613 Lincoln, Norms coffee shop at 1601 Lincoln and two other contiguous properties at 1637 and 1641 Lincoln. CWP has announced plans to build four buildings with a total of 421 studios, one and two bedroom apartments and up to 48,000 square feet of prime ground floor retail space. Called the “Lincoln Boulevard Collection,” it will have to go through City Hall’s vetting process. CWP, a large Los Angeles area developer of mixed-use projects, has become active in Santa Monica the last couple of years and is behind The Gibson Apartments at Seventh Street and Arizona Avenue. It’s a two-building, 106-unit upscale mixed-use development. CWP affiliate Cypress Equity Investments, LLC., has purchased parcels at 2919 and 3204 Wilshire Blvd. and has filed applications for a total of 182 apartments plus retail space on the parcels. Another major developer, NMS Properties, recently purchased the Denny’s parcel at 1560 Lincoln Blvd. at Colorado Avenue. Although NMS has not filed plans with City Hall, it’s expected that Denny’s will be replaced by a five- or six-floor mixed-use building with 100 plus rental units and ground floor stores. NMS has also purchased two properties in the 1600 block of Lincoln and plans to build a six-floor, 82 unit, 100 percent affordable and workforce housing apartment complex with a retail component at 1660 Lincoln Blvd. and a five-floor, 100-unit, mixed-use building at 1650 Lincoln Blvd. NMS recently completed two projects — 1447 Lincoln at Broadway and adjacent 829 Broadway. The five-floor buildings feature 97 apartments and 7,000 square feet of retail space each and include a “neighborhood serving” Starbucks and a landmarked World War II era Quonset hut. Adjacent to the Lincoln/Broadway duo, NMS proposes a six-floor, mixed-use building with 100 residential units and 2,900 square feet of retail space at 1437-1443 Lincoln. NMS has numerous other similar projects either completed or on the drawing board throughout Santa Monica. All of the above mentioned developments will contain multi-level subterranean parking facilities and numerous amenities. The five- and six-floor, wall-towall developments on this part of Lincoln will create a canyon on what is now a lowrise street. The rush to develop this area (and dramatic escalation in property values) is because the coming Expo Light Rail will be rolling down Colorado and across Lincoln beginning in 2015 or 2016. The downside is that between Expo and all the new developments, horrendous traffic problems on this heavily traveled Lincoln corridor will surely

ensue. We’re talking about citywide gridlock, baby. This stretch of Lincoln is a heavily congested north/south artery to and from the freeway — and that’s without the pedestrian and bicycle amenities also being kicked around as part of the Downtown Specific Plan’s effort to “humanize” the street. During the morning and evening rush hours, 24 210-foot long Expo trains per hour will cross Lincoln. The crossings, including opening and closing gates, will take 90 seconds to two minutes each, so vehicle traffic on Lincoln will experience red lights most of the time. The result: huge traffic backups on both sides of Colorado. Fast forward a few years from now. Thousands of folks have moved into the new buildings. The neighborhood around them is primarily an industrial “no mans land” without any existing residential neighborhood amenities or green space. How long before these new residents will be asking City Hall for wider sidewalks, planted medians, trees, parklets, a bicycle lane, green spaces and pedestrian crosswalks for crossing Lincoln? City Hall planners will have their work cut out for them.

NEW COMMISSIONER PHOTOGRAPHY INTERN

Last week, I wrote in this space that attorney Susan “Sue” Himmelrich, TV producer/teacher John C Smith and civil engineer Armen Melkonians were the best candidates out of 20 quality applicants for an open seat on the Planning Commission. City Council picked Himmelrich. It’s interesting to note the pro-development vs. slow growth divide on the new City Council. Pam O’Connor, Bob Holbrook and Terry O’Day initially supported entertainment attorney Frank Gruber who was predicted to be a pro-development vote if named to the commission. Ted Winterer backed landmarks advocate Nina Fresco. O’Connor, Holbrook and O’Day have a history of voting “pro-development” as well as accepting substantial campaign contributions in the past from developers. Winterer, Kevin McKeown and Tony Vazquez are considered more slow-growth. Gleam Davis, who has also received substantial campaign largess from developers, has been voting with her slow growth colleagues, recently. When it was over, Himmelrich received all but O’Connor’s nod. ANOTHER WORKSHOP

Remember to check out the community workshop on the Pedestrian Action Plan. According to publicity materials, “The purpose of this workshop will be to explore ways to make walking safe and enjoyable for everyone, everywhere in Santa Monica. City staff wants to know about what Santa Monica can do to improve pedestrian safety and comfort, and encourage people to walk in Santa Monica.” I can’t wait to see how they’re going to make Lincoln “more livable” without further screwing up traffic. This workshop will be held Monday from 7-9 p.m. in the Civic Auditorium. Y’all come. BILL can be reached at mr.bilbau@gmail.com.

Plastic debris a toxic triple whammy W H I L E P L A ST I C R E F U S E O N L A N D

is a familiar eyesore as litter and a burden on landfills, in the marine environment it can be lethal to sea creatures by way of ingestion or entanglement. Now, a new study highlights how ocean plastic debris is also a threat to humans because plastics are vehicles for introducing toxic chemicals of three sources into the ocean food web. BACKGROUND

Researchers deposited preproduction pellets (2-3 mm in size) of five plastic polymers at locations in San Diego Bay, Calif. At intervals of 6 to 12 months, samples were recovered for analysis of two families of persistent toxins: PCBs and PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons — byproducts of burning fossil fuels or forest fires). WHAT DID THEY FIND?

All five polymers accumulated increasing amounts over time of both PCBs and PAHs.

Ingestion of marine plastic debris is commonplace at all levels of the food web, whether passively by filter feeders, like krill and many fish, or actively when mistaken for food by animals as diverse as sea birds, turtles and whales. All such creatures represent entry points into the ocean food web for toxins either manufactured into plastics or accumulated later from seawater. This study highlights that mass-produced plastics are all potential vehicles for transporting hazardous chemicals found in seawater, so it will be hard to argue that any one is harmless as an ocean pollutant. As example, PP is often considered less toxic than PVC because vinyl chloride is a known carcinogen, yet PP soaks up more PCBs and PAHs from seawater. Another disturbing implication is that plastic debris can become progressively more chemically hazardous as weathering increases the surface area available for gathering pollutants. Analogously, larger plastics debris breaks apart over time into smaller bits, also increasing total surface area. This study also serves to draw fire to the notion that developing marine biodegradable plastics will automatically eliminate chemical threats stemming from conventional plastics which are non-biodegradable. The sole standard established for biodegradation of plastics in the marine environment allows that, at six months, plastic fragments up to two mm can remain and only 30 percent of the original material needs have undergone biodegradation (ASTM D7081). This standard would allow biodegradable debris ample opportunity to deliver its triple chemical threat into the ocean food chain and maybe even onto our dinner plates.

WHAT DID THEY DO?

IMPLICATIONS

(BUT WE MAKE IT EASY!!!)

T. HS 14T

Two of the sources are manufactured into plastics and have been described in previous studies. The first is the very building blocks of plastic polymers, called monomers, which are linked during polymerization. However, polymerization is never complete, always leaving some monomers unattached and free to migrate out into whatever the plastic comes in contact, like foods/beverages or the guts of a sea creature. Some monomers are known toxins, like the carcinogen vinyl chloride that makes up polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastics, or the endocrine disruptor bisphenol-A (BPA) that makes up polycarbonate plastics. The second source is the brew of additives that manufacturers mix in to impart plastics with desired properties. Additives can have toxic properties of their own (like some softening agents and flame retardants), and they are also free to leach out. Manufacturers generally consider their blends of additives as proprietary and secret. The study just published in December in the journal Environmental Science & Technology addresses a third but external source of toxic chemicals — oily pollutants commonly found in seawater that glom onto the surface of plastic debris. Because plastics are oily substances, they attract other oily chemicals floating about. The study described here from San Diego State University compared how readily the five most common mass-produced plastic polymers accumulate hazardous chemicals from local seawater.

However, three types (HDPE, LDPE and PP) soaked up the pollutants at concentrations an order of magnitude higher than the other two (PVC and PET). Though seawater concentrations of PCBs and PAHs varied somewhat over time and between bay locations, PVC and PET pellets generally reached equilibrium concentrations of the pollutants within six months, whereas the other polymers had not always reached equilibrium by even 12 months. This is longer than has been predicted in laboratory simulations where polymers are not subject to weathering which produces surface pitting, increasing the surface area to which toxins can stick.

Even for those of us without allergies, poor indoor air quality is an often overlooked health issue. Recent research has shown that the air inside some buildings can be more polluted than the outdoor air in the most industrialized of cities. And since many of us spend some 90 percent of our time indoors, cleaning the air where we live and work might be one of the most important things we can do for our health. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lists three basic strategies for improving indoor air: source control, improved ventilation and air cleaners. Source control, whereby emissions from individual sources of pollution are eliminated or reduced-for instance finding somewhere outside the home to store old paint and construction supplies-is typically the most effective strategy. If the sources of pollution are beyond your control, bringing in more air from outside through better ventilation is the best bet. “Most home heating and cooling systems, including forced air heating systems, do not mechanically bring fresh air into the house,” the EPA warns. “Opening windows and doors, operating window or attic fans when the weather permits, or running a window air conditioner with the vent control open, increases the outdoor ventilation rate.” The agency adds that local bathroom or kitchen fans that exhaust outdoors also remove contaminants while increasing the outdoor air ventilation rate. Air cleaners (either mechanical filters or electronic cleaners) can also help reduce or remove some forms of indoor air pollution. “Some air cleaners are highly effective at

particle removal, while others, including most table-top models, are much less so,” reports the EPA. “People with sensitivity to particular sources may find that air cleaners are helpful only in conjunction with concerted efforts to remove the source.” The agency’s free online “Guide to Air Cleaners in the Home” compares the general types of residential air cleaners and their effectiveness in reducing pollutants including particles and gaseous contaminants. Some of us swear by our houseplants for keeping our indoor air free of pollutants. Mother Nature Network reports that certain plants are known to filter out specific contaminants: Aloe removes airborne formaldehyde and benzene; spider plants scrub carbon monoxide and xylene; and gerbera daisies take the trichloroethylene left over from dry cleaned items out of your air. The EPA, however, does not consider houseplants to be especially effective at air filtration, and even warns that overwatered indoor houseplants can in and of themselves present a health hazard because damp soil may promote the growth of allergens. Good housekeeping also can go a long way toward improving indoor air. WebMD reports that regular mopping and vacuuming (with a HEPA-filter-equipped vacuum cleaner), keeping interior moisture levels low, maintaining a smoke-free environment, and ditching chemical air fresheners are all key to maintaining good breathing space inside. WebMD also suggests testing your home for radon, a radioactive gas found in soils that can penetrate cracks in a building’s foundation and has been linked to lung cancer.

Groups want state to study smaller water tunnel idea GOSIA WOZNIACKA Associated Press

FRESNO, Calif. A half-dozen water agencies have cast their lot with environmental groups in calling on California to study a scaled-down alternative to the $14 billion Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta tunnels endorsed by Gov. Jerry Brown to bring water from north to south. Proponents say a single, smaller tunnel coupled with investments such as water recycling and desalination would result in more water for cities and farms. They say it also would be better for the environment and cost less — with construction estimated at $5 billion to $7 billion. Agricultural groups say a scaled-down water conveyance would be devastating to farmers in the Central Valley, who rely on the delta to irrigate thousands of acres of crops. The proposal is a sign of how California’s water wars have evolved. “The big fight over the delta used to be between environmentalists and thirsty cities who wanted more water,” said Barry Nelson, senior policy analyst at Natural Resources Defense Council, which supports the alternative. “But now, there’s a growing list of cities whose plan it is to become less reliant on the delta and to invest in local solutions. There’s common ground there.” The health of the delta, the hub of California’s water delivery system, has long been deteriorating. Massive pumps which draw drinking water for more than 25 million Californians and irrigate vast expanses of crops are blamed for declines in onceabundant fish populations. Declines in tiny delta smelt, salmon and other species have spurred regulations that curtail delta pumping. In dry years, limited water deliveries have led some farmers to let fields lie fallow and communities to impose water-use restrictions. In July, Brown and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced support for massive 35mile twin tunnels to carry water south. The proposal also includes plans for more than 100,000 acres of floodplain and tidal marsh habitat restoration. The project, called the Bay Delta Conservation Plan, must satisfy two goals: restore the estuary’s fragile ecosystem and provide a more stable water supply to residents and farmers. Officials say the tunnels would divert water beneath the delta, lessening the impact of pumps on fish. The amount of water to be diverted would be determined once the project is built, based on the health of the species. The entire project would cost $23 billion. Water agencies would pay $14 billion for construction and $5.8 billion for operations. Some $3.2 billion for habitat restoration would come from a voter-approved bond on the November 2014 ballot. During his State of the State address Thursday, Brown said construction costs would be similar to the London Olympics. “But this project will serve California for hundreds of years.” Environmental groups and seven water agencies want the state to examine their newest proposal as a stand-alone alternative during the environmental review process, which is be completed by the end of the year. State officials will decide whether to include the new alternative for consideration. In addition to a smaller conveyance and investment into local projects, the new proposal includes strengthening delta levees to

protect the water supply from earthquakes, investing in more south-of-delta storage, and 40,000 acres of habitat restoration. Total cost is estimated at $14 billion to $16 billion. Following the Legislature’s 2009 mandate to reduce reliance on the delta, many urban and agricultural water agencies have been developing innovative local projects and water efficiencies. But those measures are not being considered by the state, said San Diego County Water Authority’s assistant general manager Dennis Cushman. San Diego, which supports the new proposal, serves 3.1 million residents in San Diego and 23 other cities and agencies. “It’s critically important to first understand what the real demand for water from the delta is, before decisions are made about project size, scope and cost,” Cushman said. The San Diego County Water Authority once got 95 percent of its water from the Metropolitan Water District, the giant LosAngeles based wholesaler which gets water from the delta and the Colorado River. But by developing various local projects, San Diego now gets only half its water from MWD. Cushman said investing in two pricy delta tunnels might not make sense for his district. “The state’s approach right now is to build the biggest project they can build, invest $14 billion and find out 10 years down line what supply water districts get,” Cushman said. To environmentalists, making a water project affordable for the water agencies that will finance it is key. “If the project proposed by the governor cannot be paid for, that would leave us with the status quo and the species would continue their march to extinction,” said Jonas Minton, water policy adviser for the Planning and Conservation League. State officials say they already are examining a smaller tunnel alternative. That alternative does not include local water supply development or other aspects of the new proposal, because the BDCP is focused on delta conservation, said Karla Nemeth of the California Natural Resources Agency. “We won’t get any credit for preserving the delta smelt because of a local water supply project in San Diego,” Nemeth said. Agricultural groups and water districts say the new proposal would leave farmers high and dry. “The proposal doesn’t provide enough water to meet agricultural needs,” said Mike Wade, executive director for the California Farm Water Coalition. “Developing local supply projects is a fine idea, but they don’t address water reliability.” A scaled-down conveyance, Wade said, could lead water contractors who serve farmers to continue relying on the existing delta water conveyance — meaning fish would continue being dragged into the pumps and killed. A small tunnel would also not allow the shipment and storage of larger amounts of water during wet years, thereby making the water supply less reliable during dry years, he said. While agricultural water districts are developing water efficiencies, they’ll still need plenty of water from the delta to irrigate crops, said Brent Walthall, assistant general manager, Kern County Water Agency, which mostly serves farmers and has not taken a position on the tunnel proposals. “We’re hoping the water project will be successful,” Walthall said, “and that it’s affordable for us.”

Local FROM PAGE 1 who has been taking this approach for two years. “It’s a student-focused classroom where the responsibility for learning has flipped from me to the students.” The concept emerged five years ago when a pair of Colorado high school teachers started videotaping their chemistry classes for absent students. “We found it was really valuable and pushed us to ask what the students needed us for,” said one of the teachers, Aaron Sams, now a consultant who is developing on online education program in Pittsburgh. “They didn’t need us for content dissemination, they needed us to dig deeper.” He and colleague Jonathan Bergmann began condensing classroom lectures to short videos and assigning them as homework. “The first year, I was able to double the number of labs my students were doing,” Sams said. “That’s every science teacher’s dream.” In the Detroit suburb of Clinton Township, Clintondale High School Principal Greg Green converted the whole school to flipped learning in the fall of 2011 after years of frustration with high failure rates and discipline problems. Three-quarters of the school’s enrollment of 600 is lowincome, minority students. Flipping yielded dramatic results after just a year, including a 33 percent drop in the freshman failure rate and a 66 percent drop in the number of disciplinary incidents from the year before, Green said. Graduation, attendance and test scores all went up. Parent complaints dropped from 200 to seven. Green attributed the improvements to an approach that engages students more in their classes. “Kids want to take an active part in the learning process,” he said. “Now teachers are actually working with kids.” Although the method has been more popular in high schools, it’s now catching on in elementary schools, said Afstrom of the Flipped Learning Network.

CP FROM PAGE 1 “If every student donates a quarter a day at Samo, we can make about $800 [per month],” Sardo explains. Collecting change will be as easy as dropping coins into one of five boxes at the school. The boxes were installed over winter break and paid for by the Sardo family. At the end of each month a check will be made out for the amount raised and be donated to a local charity. This month, the charity’s first, homeless services provider OPCC will be the nonprofit of choice. “In the future, once we get up and running, we might be letting students vote and decide what organization will be benefited for the month,” Sardo says. Laurel Fretz, principal of Samohi, thinks highly of Sardo. “[Sardo] is a very sincere and intelligent young man who is passionate about helping others. He has been working on this idea since last summer,” she says. “I support his efforts.” And it doesn’t end at the high school

Fifth-grade teacher Lisa Highfill in the Pleasanton Unified School District said for a lesson about adding decimals, she made a five-minute, how-to video kids watched at home and in class, then she distributed play money and menus and had kids “ordering” food and tallying the bill and change. A colleague who teaches kindergarten reads a storybook on video. The video contains a pop-up box that requires kids to write something that shows they understood the story. The concept has its downside. Teachers note that making the videos and coming up with project activities to fill class time is a lot of extra work up front, while some detractors believe it smacks of teachers abandoning their primary responsibility of instructing. “They’re expecting kids to do the learning outside the classroom. There’s not a lot of evidence this works,” said Leonie Haimson, executive director of Class Size Matters, a New York City-based parent advocacy group. “What works is reasonably sized classes with a lot of debate, interaction and discussion.” Others question whether flipped learning would work as well with low achieving students, who may not be as motivated to watch lessons on their own, but said it was overall a positive model. “It’s forcing the notion of guided practice,” said Cynthia Desrochers, director of the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching at California State UniversityNorthridge. “Students can get the easy stuff on their own, but the hard stuff should be under the watchful eye of a teacher.” At Michigan’s Clintondale High School, some teachers show the video at the beginning of class to ensure all kids watch it and that home access is not an issue. In Kirch’s pre-calculus class, students said they liked the concept. “You’re not falling asleep in class, “said senior Monica Resendiz said. “You’re constantly working.” Explaining to adults that homework was watching videos was a little harder, though. “My grandma thought I was using it as an excuse to mess around on the Internet,” Nguyen said.

JOBS FROM PAGE 1 not been previously committed in contracts and other obligations. That unwinding process is ongoing, with $43 million still in dispute, according to a staff report. Redevelopment money funded staff costs, but it was also meant to pay for a $50 million renovation to the Civic Auditorium, a project that was the centerpiece of a deal between City Hall and the Nederlander organization, which manages and books for event venues like the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. With that money no longer available, the City Council voted in October to mothball the Civic beginning July 1, 2013, ending the need for employees at that site. That left a total of 57 positions — 30 previously funded by redevelopment money and 27 who staffed the Civic — without a foreseeable future. City Hall has been working since that time to find new places for those employees through a number of methods, including raising fees associated with some development work to cover staffing costs and finding new jobs for qualified staff in different departments. Of the 30 RDA-funded positions, seven transferred to jobs backed with other sources of funding and one resigned. Another two jobs were reclassified so they could be filled by employees that were lower on the totem pole with commensurately less expensive salaries. Others were put to work on capital projects that are funded past June 30, although what happens after that hasn’t yet been worked out, said Donna Peter, director of the Human Resources Department. In total, City Hall has to find roughly $2 million to pay for these positions, said Gigi

We have you covered Decavalles-Hughes, director of the Finance Department. Some will come from existing budget allocations, like those for capital improvement projects that are funded through June, while other money will flow from administrative allowances leftover from the dissolution of the redevelopment agency and residuals from housing loans, according to a staff report. Decavalles-Hughes expects the general fund to take a $1.3 million hit from the remaining employee costs along with rent, insurance payments and other expenditures formerly covered by redevelopment funds. There are still 23 employees that were impacted by the closing of the Civic Auditorium that, at this point, have no other recourse but to look for jobs elsewhere, according to the report. The Human Resources Department has created monthly programs for those people to help them find other jobs, including workshops to assess their skills and update their resumes. Some still see hope that the City Council’s decision to shutter the Civic Auditorium was premature. Jonathan Wolf, who accepted an award from the Chamber of Commerce on behalf of the American Film Market, told hundreds of Santa Monica’s business and civic leaders that the market’s future plans in Santa Monica relied on the Civic Auditorium as a spot to conduct red carpet premieres. That gave a boost to Civic supporters like McKeown. “Our Civic Auditorium is an architecturally significant landmark that has hosted historic events from the Academy Awards to the T.A.M.I. show, and AFM’s interest in future opportunities there might be a wake up call for us to focus some overdue love on the Civic now, while we still have it,” he said. ashley@smdp.com

Rhode Island theater owners experiment with ‘tweet seats’ ERIKA NIEDOWSKI Associated Press

PROVIDENCE, R.I. Sarah Bertness slipped into her seat at a recent staging of the musical “Million Dollar Quartet” and, when the lights dimmed, started doing something that’s long been taboo inside theaters: typing away at her iPhone. The 26-year-old freelance writer from Providence wasn’t being rude. She had a spot in the “tweet seat” section at the Providence Performing Arts Center. The downtown theater is now setting aside a small number of seats — in the back — for those who promise to live-tweet from the performance using a special hash tag. They might offer impressions of the set, music or costumes, lines of dialogue that resonate with them or anything else that strikes them, really. At “Million Dollar Quartet,” based on the true story of a 1956 recording session that united music greats Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins, PPAC for the first time had cast members tweeting from backstage, too. A growing number of theaters, including some on Broadway, have been experimenting in recent years with tweet seats and other real-time uses of social media as they try to figure out the relationship between the stage and the smartphone. Some insist the theater should remain a sacred, technology-free place and that allowing the use of phones during a show — even discreetly — only serves as a potential distraction for other patrons. But others say theaters can’t afford not to engage the digital generation, and that the way performances were once enjoyed, in a vacuum, doesn’t hold up anymore. “I think that it’s important that PPAC and cultural institutions in general kind of jump on the social media bandwagon and learn to engage a broader audience,” said Bertness, who runs the blog The Rhode Islander and is such a big Johnny Cash fan that she showed up to the performance wearing all black. “I think it’s such a valuable tool.” Scott Moreau, an understudy for Johnny Cash, hadn’t ever tweeted from backstage during a performance. He tried

to provide a glimpse of what life’s like on the tour, which he likened to the special features on a DVD. He said he enjoyed getting instant feedback from the tweeters — feedback he shared with other cast members. “It makes it feel a lot more personal,” Moreau said. A picture of Moreau that was tweeted out from backstage — he was tweeting in it himself — prompted someone in the tweet seats to declare that’s what the Man in Black would have looked like, with an iPhone. Other theaters are also trying different digital ways to engage with patrons. In Boston, the Huntington Theater plans to introduce a “Twittermission” where an artist affiliated with the production, or someone from the theater’s staff, answers questions about the show on Twitter during intermissions. The tweets will also be projected on screens in the theater lobby, according to spokeswoman Rebecca Curtiss. The theater won’t be introducing tweet seats, though. “We feel strongly that the experience that an audience member has in our theater should be limited to what they are seeing on the stage,” Curtiss said. “When the lights go down and the show begins, we want the art on stage to speak for itself.” PPAC isn’t sure yet whether any social media buzz generated by those in the tweet seats will have a measurable effect at the box office. But spokeswoman P.J. Prokop said the theater intends to keep the program through the end of the year, and then evaluate it. Those who sit in the tweet seats get their tickets for free. Kirsten DiChiappari, who has tweeted three shows there to her nearly 1,400 followers, grew up in New Jersey going to Broadway musicals, plays and the opera. The 41-year-old social media consultant from Bristol sees her live-tweeting as a way to lure people from their living rooms, where many are glued to “horrible reality television.” “It’s kind of a way to tease people back to support the live arts, the real arts, the original arts,” she said. “I feel like once they go, they’ll go again.”

DO NOT T WITHHOLD D RENT Under certain limited circumstances, a tenant may withhold rent. But, it is never a good idea to withhold rent. If a tenant does not pay the full rent, when due, the landlord would most likely serve the tenant with a three day notice to pay or quit. Once a three day notice to pay or quit expires, the landlord does not have to accept the money even if the tenant offers the full amount.The landlord can refuse the payment and proceed with an unlawful detainer action (eviction case). An unlawful detainer action is very stressful.Also, the tenant would have the expense of litigation costs and probably attorney fees.A tenant does not have to retain an attorney to defend an unlawful detainer action, but it would be very wise to do so. If a tenant loses an unlawful detainer case, the tenant would be evicted and owe all of the back rent and possibly the landlord’s attorney fees and litigation costs. Further, the unlawful detainer judgment would probably appear on the tenant’s credit reports as well as reports kept by landlord agencies which could make it difficult to rent a new home in the future. For all of the above reasons, a tenant should never withhold any rent. GIVE E LANDLORD D A LIST T IN N WRITING The first thing a tenant should do is give the landlord a list in writing of items which need to be repaired.The list should be hand-delivered or mailed to the landlord.The tenant must keep a copy of that list and keep track of when and how the list was delivered to the landlord (the specific date when the list was mailed or hand-delivered). A tenant must give the landlord a reasonable period to make repairs.What is a “reasonable period”is defined on a case by case basis.Usually,a tenant should give the landlord 30 days to make repairs.But,if the condition is serious (i.e.:no electricity, no hot water,hole in the roof),a reasonable time would be much shorter. A tenant should list all items which need repair, in detail. Failure to notify the landlord of a specific problem may prevent a tenant from being compensated later for the defective condition. CONTACT T GOVERNMENT T INSPECTORS If the landlord does not make the repairs within a reasonable period, the tenant should contact appropriate government inspectors. In Santa Monica, the first office to be contacted should be the Santa Monica Code Compliance Department: (310) 458-4984. The Code Compliance Department will not come to a rental unit to perform a general inspection.The tenant must have a specific list of items which need repair. In addition to the Code Compliance Department, a

tenant should call the County of Los Angeles Department of Health Services.To arrange for an inspection, a Santa Monica tenant would call: (310) 665-8484. The advantage of government inspectors is that the government agency may order the landlord to make repairs.Also, if the tenant is in trial with the landlord (or a hearing with the Santa Monica Rent Control Board), the government inspectors’ reports may be admissible as evidence. PETITION N FOR R RENT T DECREASE E If the landlord does not make the required repairs, a tenant may file a petition for rent decrease.The petition is filed with the Santa Monica Rent Control Board, located in Santa Monica City Hall, 1685 Main Street, Room 202, Santa Monica, CA 90401; (310) 458-8751.The petition for rent decrease may be filed 30 to 180 days after service of the written notice to the landlord of items which need repair. If the petition is granted, the rent will be reduced. But, the rent reduction is prospective (from that point forward).The Rent Control Board does not have the authority to award any money to compensate the tenant for past conditions or reduced services. SMALL L CLAIMSS COURT T If a tenant wishes to be compensated for the defective conditions or reduced services in the past, the tenant would have to file a lawsuit.A suit could be filed in superior court.Although an attorney is not required for superior court, it is likely that the landlord would retain an attorney.When one party has an attorney and the other does not, it is a big advantage. If the tenant retains an attorney, the expenses might make such a suit in superior court impractical. Usually, the most economical way to proceed is to file a lawsuit in small claims court.A person can sue in small claims court for up to $7,500.00.And, there are no attorneys in small claims court.Thus, the expenses are greatly reduced. CONSULT T WITH H AN N ATTORNEY Even if the tenant is not going to retain an attorney on a fulltime basis, it is usually a good idea to at least have a consultation with a tenants’ rights attorney, especially before filing suit in small claims court or filing a petition for rent decrease.

We have you covered

Sudoku Fill in the blank cells using numbers 1 to 9. Each number can appear only once in each row, column, and 3x3 block. Use logic and process of elimination to solve the puzzle. The difficulty level ranges from ★ (easiest) to ★★★★★ (hardest).

GETTING STARTED There are many strategies to solving Sudoku. One way to begin is to examine each 3x3 grid and figure out which numbers are missing. Then, based on the other numbers in the row and column of each blank cell, find which of the missing numbers will work. Eliminating numbers will eventually lead you to the answer.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY

CHUCK

SHEPARD

■ "Washington State, Known for ...": When a man died of a perforated colon in 2005 in Enumclaw, Wash., while having sex with a horse (at what news reports suggested was a "bestiality farm"), the legislature passed the state's first anti-bestiality law, which was used in 2010 in another "farm" case, in Bellingham, 110 miles from Enumclaw. A British man had sex with several dogs on the property of Douglas Spink, who had allegedly arranged the trysts, and the man was convicted and deported, but Spink was not charged (though instead was re-imprisoned for an earlier crime). In November 2012, with Spink nearing release, prosecutors filed bestiality charges using evidence from 2010, involving "four stallions, seven large-breed male dogs" and "13 mice, each coated with a lubricant." According to the Bellingham Herald, Spink (acting as his own lawyer) denounced state officials and "the bigotry behind the (law)." ■ Least Competent Criminals: Peter Welsh, 32, and Dwayne Doolan, 31, weren't the first burglars to try breaking into a building by smashing through the adjoining basement wall, but they might be the clumsiest. Their target, on New Year's Eve, was Wrights Jewellers in Beaudesert, Australia, but trying to smash the front window failed, as did smashing the rear doors, which were actually those of another store. They finally settled on the basement option, but absentmindedly broke through the oppositeside wall and wound up in a KFC restaurant. (Undaunted, according to police, they robbed the KFC of about $2,600.)

TODAY IN HISTORY – The Surpreme Court of Canada struck down all abortion laws which mean abortions where allowed in Canada in all 9 months of pregnancy.
