A noble scientist Samohi grad awarded the Nobel Peace Prize BY MELODY HANATANI I Daily Press Staff Writer LOS ANGELES When Jeremy Pal watched “An Inconvenient Truth,” he came into the movie with not much expectations and a slight dislike for the star of the documentary. Little did the Loyola Marymount University professor know that he would one day be among the group of scientist sharing the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with the former Vice President Al Gore.

Gary Limjap (310) 586-0339

“It was better than I expected it to be,” the Santa Monica High School graduate said on Thursday. “Obviously, Al Gore is not a scientist or researcher in any sort of form ... but all things considered, he did a pretty good job and came off being quite likable in my opinion.” The Nobel Foundation announced the 2007 laureates earlier this month, naming Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for “their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change. Pal, a professor of civil engineering and environmental science, is among a group of contributing authors with the

Wildfire survivors say grace Group of evacuees give thanks for rescue BY CHELSEA J. CARTER Associated Press Writer

SAN DIEGO

Survivors of Southern California firestorms that destroyed more than 2,000 homes found reasons Sunday to be thankful even as the damage toll mounted and firefighters worked to contain blazes. Fire officials were keeping an eye on warm, dry weather that moved in behind a moist, tropical system that allowed fire crews to make gains Saturday. Winds up to 15 mph were expected, but weren’t considered a problem. “This is fire conditions that we can actively fight, unlike the Santa Ana winds,” said SEE FIRES PAGE 12

Reaching the world Educator’s actions help inform media of conflict in Burma BY JARED MORGAN Special to the Daily Press

SMC The desks in his classroom were positioned in a circle. Ryan McMillen, like the handful of students arranged around him, held a copy of Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Everything is Illuminated.” McMillen’s copy was different — his was worn and the cover didn’t feature

Elijah Wood. This book was made into a movie two years ago. The story follows an ordinary young man who travels to Ukraine to find the truth behind his family’s past. “This class is quiet,” McMillen said, referring to the students after they exited the classroom. From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, he teaches English 31, or advanced composition, at Santa Monica College. The course is geared toward students majoring in English. But, apparently English isn’t the only subject he gravitates to. This mild mannered college instructor also dabbles in Internet activism.

Like the lead character in Foer’s book, an ordinary educator, McMillen, made a cyber journey to Burma where a major uprising is currently turning the somewhat obscure Asian nation on its head. Instead of a personal journey of self-discovery, McMillen was about to embark on helping to enlighten the masses about a conflict that is currently gripping the human family. After receiving an e-mail containing a video of Japanese journalist Kenji Nagai being gunned down by a Junta soldier in Myanmar, or Burma, McMillen decided to upload it to the iReporter section of

Lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan said the court was expected to issue a written ruling by next Tuesday after extensive testimony was presented on a number of issues. Spears did not comment after the hearing. Earlier, she uttered an epithet when a reporter asked how the proceedings were going.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

My Write

Bill Bauer

Do the math on the trees (The Daily Press) story “Cash don’t grow on trees” (Oct. 25) suggests that, according to city staff, Santa Monica may lose millions of dollars if there are any changes to the final Second and Fourth streets streetscape plan — such as the uprooting and relocation of scores of healthy ficus trees, for example. But exactly which design changes are they talking about? Go to the Planning Department, as we did, and you receive one set of plans for the project. Visit the city’s Web site, and you get a different set of drawings, with a different tree count. If one design was used for the application, and a different one for the bidding (after the grant was awarded), does this count as a money-losing design change? One thing we know for certain: Leaving the healthy trees in place will SAVE the city over $600,000 — by the city’s own estimates. Let’s stick to what we know: Leave the healthy trees in place, and save a few hundred thousand of the taxpayer’s dollars. That’s hardly a risky proposition.

Not clearing the air Editor:

I am writing out of concern for the air we breathe in the Santa Monica Airport Sunset Park area. Many years ago, before the large commercial corporate jets; yes, our air was OK to breathe. We are unable to go into our own backyard due to raw jet fuel filling the air from the jet take-offs and landings. The article (“What smog? SM honored for clear air initiatives,” Oct. 24) may be talking about the air you breathe down nearer to the ocean with the ocean breezes. The air quality of this neighborhood is totally unacceptable at so many hours during the day. You are invited to come to my house and sit in the backyard to take a deep breath and enjoy this air at this end of the runway. Many people say, “Why not move?” Where are we able to go in Santa Monica with homes being over millions of dollars! These homes were built here before the jets. The increase of fumes is totally toxic and we are unable to enjoy daily walks and gardening. We have to close all windows. The black soot from the exhaust of jets is everywhere. Help us on this end to make our air safe to breathe. The safety of our air has not improved and it is misleading to read this article.

Bush hits all the wrong buttons Editor:

What does Iran having the capability of one nuclear bomb in 10 years (U.S. intelligence agencies) have to do with raising the specter of World War III, as trumpeted by President Bush? This sounds like the rant and ravings of the fundamentalist right and Armageddon nuts. Or is it nuclear brinkmanship that Bush is aiming at? Keep George Bush away from the button.

PUBLISHER Ross Furukawa

City’s ‘green’ effort: All talk and no walk LAST MONDAY, I WROTE THAT THE

city’s “green” image was all rhetoric and little action. I wrote that statistical information from the City’s Solid Waste Management was incomplete, deliberately confusing and contradictory — in essence, a shell game. Bottom line is the city’s record on sustainability including all those "environmentally friendly" things such as resource reduction, recycling and not polluting the environment fell far short of City Hall’s boasts. Although the city talks a good line, the truth is that its lousy record on most things “green” goes back years. In December, 1993, Craig Perkins, the City’s Director of Solid Waste Management, wrote a letter to Water Quality Control Board inspector who criticized the City Yard and Transfer Station. Perkin’s response appeared to promise to fix problems such as waste exposed to rainfall because of a lack of a roof and a drain that allowed hazardous and toxic effluent to run into the bay, untreated, Although Perkins told the AQMD his facility would be covered by October, 1996, It’s still unroofed. Hazardous chemicals still end up in the bay at Pico Boulevard untreated, especially when it rains and the SMRF treatment plant overflows. On June 15, 2005, I wrote in this space, "The present City yard and transfer station is where trash is sorted, separated and prepared for recycling or transport to a landfill is in terrible shape. There’s no roof. Dust becomes airborne and isn’t adequately monitored." Being it takes in construction and demolition waste, one fears that airborne particles from the facility may contain asbestos fibers, a known carcinogen, that can dissipate for miles in prevailing breezes. Environmental problems are not confined to the city yards. Rainwater runoff from parking lots in the newly renovated Virginia Park drain into neighborhood streets and gutters. The city’s traffic jamming policies is responsible for tons of exhaust pollutants that spew into the atmosphere, annually. With all this, one has to ask, “Where’s the oversight? Where are city politicians with their sustainable, “green” agenda? And, are we going to continue to make bad decisions and costly mistakes? Nevertheless, despite all the issues. city staff has still recommended to City Council that the city’s Solid Waste Management Division continue to handle collection as well as transfer, recycling and disposal services for Santa Monica’s garbage. Tuesday night, the council will discuss how to handle Santa Monica’s refuse. It’s item 3-A on their agenda. Numerous options are on the table as put forth by an “independent” evaluation committee in the item’s staff report (available online.) All will affect quality of service, the environment and cost us for decades to come. The committee says commercial trash

collection would be best handled by the city with an option for a private company to compete with the city. Currently, several private companies are competing to provide commercial collection. If a second private firm were to be added, Athens Services, Inc., a City of Industry operation with a record of union-busting and environmental violations, was recommended as the “second ranked” provider by the committee. Transfer and disposal services which includes sorting and material recovery also had a number of options. The city could farm this out or handle it in an “improved” City Yard and Transfer Station, itself. Or, it could share the operation with a private partner. The evaluation committee recommended the city handle this function, especially materials recovery — or “recycling” to you and me. This, means spending tens of millions of dollars to roof the city yard and bring it up to present day standards and environmental requirements.

CIRCULATION

As an alternative, the committee recommended the city’s Solid Waste Management Division and one or more of two non-Santa Monica based firms and Santa Monica based, Southern California Disposal share recycling, transfer and disposal functions. City Council has some difficult decisions making, but I can’t help but get a whiff of politics behind this report. The conspicuous absence of a more active roll for locally owned SCD with its clean environmental record (and who happens to be right next door to the current city yard) is puzzling but not surprising. I’m uncomfortable with the committee’s proposals and I see a wide open door for the city to expand its solid waste operations, but at what cost to Mother Earth and the taxpayers of the community? Considering the history, I can’t help but feeling we’re all going to be trashed.

Come on, who doesn’t like vampire pictures? — Bela Lugosi

HALLOWEEN IS ASSOCIATED WITH

strage creatures, but none more so than the vampire. To most, the vampire is a myth, an image popularized in movies, television and books. Yet the vampire is no mere Hollywood creation. It is a universal legend. Stories about this blood-sucking fiend have been told throughout the world for centuries, perhaps as long as tales have been told. The villagers of Uganda, Haiti, Indonesia and the Upper Amazon all have their local variety of vampire. Native American tribes, Arctic Eskimos and many Arabian tribes know the vampire well. Many of the stories are obviously myth, but some no doubt have their roots in reality. Incidents involving “actual” vampires have been chronicled by monks, ministers and virtually every form of writer. In fact, the highly respected 18th century French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau wrote: “If there ever was in the world a warranted and proven history, it is that of vampires; nothing is lacking, official reports, testimonials of persons of standing, of surgeons, of clergymen, of judges; the judicial evidence is all-embracing.” When we begin to examine the elements of truth behind the vampire legend, we soon discover that it disguises a morbid reality.“Today,” writes author Brad Steiger, “medical science recognizes a vampire psychosis wherein troubled individuals may become convinced that their life depends upon drawing fresh blood from human victims. The persons suffering from such a psychosis may, in extreme cases, actually believe themselves to be dead.” Whether the vampire is a product of fact or fiction, its legend has been trumpeted both in literature and film. However, it is the movies that have by way of folklore, religion, sex and gore woven an irresistible symbol of the underdog vampire who fights and fights again but can never win against the forces of God and men. And now the vampire is so tightly interwoven into our cultural matrix that it seems at times as if the vampire’s torn and ripped spirit is one with modern culture. The following are some of my favorite vampire flicks. “Nosferatu” (1922). F. W. Murnau’s film adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” remains one of the creepiest and most atmospheric versions. Remade by Werner Herzog in 1979.

“Dracula” (1931). The mother of all American vampire films, this classic starring Bela Lugosi, despite its vintage, is still fine viewing. What would Halloween be without this movie? “The Last Man on Earth” (1964). The always watchable Vincent Price is the sole survivor of a plague that has turned the rest of the world into vampires who constantly seek to destroy him. This film is the precursor to “Night of the Living Dead” (1968). “Rabid” (1977). After undergoing plastic surgery, a young girl develops a strange lesion in her armpit and finds that she now has a craving for human blood. Very violent. Fright Night (1985). A teen discovers that his new next-door neighbor is really a vampire and, with help from friends, seeks to destroy the bloodsucker. But the vampire learns of their plans and fights back. “The Lost Boys” (1987). A divorced mom and her two boys move to a California town. But soon the boys are drawn into a group of rebel-rousing teens who are really a gang of vampires. One of the more hip vampire flicks that has the two Coreys (Haim and Feldman) working together for the first time. Violent. “Near Dark” (1987). Caleb is a farm boy who is a vampire in transition. And in order to become a full-blooded bloodsucker, he has to kill and feed. He hooks up with a small band of close-knit, vicious vampires whose main interest is feeding on humans. But Caleb is a reluctant bloodsucker. Violent. “The Addiction” (1995). A Ph.D. candidate, when bitten by a vampire, develops a ferocious appetite for human blood. Vampirism here is paralleled with drug addiction. Violent. “Blade” (1998). Blade is a half-human/halfvampire who seeks out and eliminates his vampire kindred. Soon Blade is battling to prevent a vampire apocalypse. Very violent. There have been more vampire films made than any other genre. For whatever reason, vampires are considered special. Maybe it’s because there is something in their character that is reflective of us. After all, the image of the vampire is forever shifting and changing, reflecting not itself but our own fears and secret longings. The vampire casts no reflection in the mirror. He doesn’t have to—after all, it’s our own faces we see when we gaze into the vampire’s eyes. JOHN W. WHITEHEAD is founder of The Rutherford Institute. P R O U D LY B R O U G H T T O Y O U B Y

Reno trespassers feel railroaded BY SCOTT SONNER Associated Press Writer

RENO, Nev. Gabe Kennedy had never heard of the railroad police when a special agent for Union Pacific wrote him a $190 ticket for trespassing on a bridge university students routinely use as a shortcut to campus. Neither had Jason Ormsby, a graduate chemistry student at the University of Nevada, Reno, or Katie Carr, who is studying there to be a teacher. “I cried,” said Carr, 22, who lives in neighboring Sparks, nicknamed the “Rail City” because of its birth along the tracks at the turn of the 20th century. “I’ve never even had a speeding ticket and I get a walking ticket,” she said. “I asked if he would give me a warning and he told me, `Police don’t give warnings. The signs are the warnings."’ One of the last vestiges of the Old West, railroad police have been protecting the rails since the mid-1800s when they faced Jesse James, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Unfamiliar to most, they are railroad employees who have law enforcement jurisdiction under state and federal laws to make arrests and carry firearms. Pennsylvania became the first state to authorize its governor to appoint railroad police officers in 1865, four years before completion of the transcontinental railroad. Before that, several railroads hired famed private detective Allan Pinkerton, who foiled a conspiracy in 1861 to sabotage track between Baltimore and Wilmington, Del., as part of an attempt to assassinate President Lincoln. Nevada didn’t formally authorize railroad police until 1921 in a law that remains largely unchanged, said Guy Rocha, the state’s archivist. “In the very early period they were protecting the interests of the railroads, whether it was the instance of the assassination attempt out East or breaking unions,” Rocha said.“Most of the time it is keeping people off their property — hobos or bums or tramps.” Last month, Union Pacific’s police extended their long arm of the law to Reno college students, issuing $190 citations to two dozen who were nabbed during a four-hour special enforcement operation as they crossed the railroad bridge over U.S. Interstate 80 on the north edge of the downtown casino district. Dale Bray, Union Pacific’s director of public safety, said the railroad has conducted 208 similar special operations around the nation this year and removed 5,600 people from railroad property while issuing trespass citations to 122 people. Several Reno students claimed as many as 100 people were cited, but Bray said the agents told him the total was only 23. A number of people were stopped before they walked onto the bridge and therefore were not cited, he said. “These operations are not to punish people, it is to enforce laws that are there to protect them,” said Bray, who noted students could use pedestrian bridges within a block and a half in either direction. “One of them was wearing headphones and another was reading the newspaper as they walked across the narrow bridge,” he said. Many of those caught grudgingly paid their tickets. But about a dozen who said they were being “railroaded” showed up in Reno Justice Court to challenge the fines.

“I was just trying to make it to class on time so I cut across the railroad bridge,” one student quietly explained to the judge. Ormsby said he and his friend were about two-thirds of the way across the bridge when the officer approached. “He told us in a rather aggressive way how dangerous it was to cross the bridge, but if he really was concerned about that he could have been on the other side of the bridge warning us away instead of issuing us a citation,” Ormsby said. “I thought we were just going to get a warning. The whole thing seemed pretty ridiculous,” he said. Justice of the Peace Jenny Hubach agreed. “It’s sort of silly that they charged you. I’m going to dismiss it,” she told one defendant before dismissing the cases against each of the accused railway trespassers. “They must have had a slow day.” Railroad officials said the matter is anything but silly. “We take safety very seriously here,” said James Barnes, a regional spokesman for Union Pacific, headquartered in Omaha, Neb. Last year, 517 people died while trespassing on railroad property in the United States. From January through Aug. 1 of this year, there have been more than 26,000 instances of trespassing on Union Pacific property, Bray said.

I ASKED IF HE WOULD GIVE ME A WARNING AND HE TOLD ME, `POLICE DON’T GIVE WARNINGS. THE SIGNS ARE THE WARNINGS."’ Katie Carr Reno student

This past week, a man was injured and his two dogs killed when they were hit by a train on a trestle in Verdi west of Reno near the California line. It was the same spot where this summer two people escaped but the horses they were riding were struck and killed by a train. Richard Gent, Nevada’s director of Operation Lifesaver, a nonprofit group that Union Pacific helped start years ago to educate the public about railroad safety, said the Reno train bridge in question has been a popular shortcut for students years. “It is a challenge there,” he said from Fallon. “There are other places you can cross nearby where there are sidewalks.” Gent said the tickets are warranted because a train moving at 55 mph takes more than a mile to stop and if someone was on the bridge, they’d have nowhere to go. “It’s a difficult lesson to learn but you’ve got to start somewhere. The next lesson is someone gets killed out there and everybody says, `What happened?"’ Bray said there was nothing excessive about the $190 fines. “How much money do you want to put on someone’s life?” Bray asked.“I think you could argue it’s not enough for this type of activity.” Union Pacific stepped up its enforcement of trespassing generally since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, he said.

Nature challenges trail’s guardians BY KATE RAMSAYER I Associated Press Writer MT. JEFFERSON WILDERNESS, Ore. Last November, a torrent of ice, water and rocks roared down Milk Creek from the slopes of Mount Jefferson. The flow, probably released when an earthen dam collapsed on Milk Creek Glacier, carried Volkswagen Beetle-size boulders a mile downstream, rerouted streams and left several feet of mud on the forest floor in the valley below. It also damaged the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail. Now, where the trail used to slope down to cross Milk Creek, there’s a 30-foot cliff. “It scoured it near vertical,” said Brad Peterson, a trail crew foreman with the U.S. Forest Service. “It was pretty staggering when we saw it.” Lacking a trail, hikers had to either scramble downstream a hundred yards or so to find an easier river crossing, or slide down the cliff, sometimes lowering their backpacks down first by rope. Horseback riders couldn’t pass at all, Peterson said. Although the Pacific Crest Trail was officially completed in 1993, its path isn’t fixed in stone, and the land surrounding it is not static. In addition to floods, fires regularly scorch Oregon’s section of the trail, which not only changes the views, but also increases the amount of upkeep required.

Even regular winter storms cause damage that threaten to overtake the trail. The Forest Service steps in to help with big stuff, like in September, when a crew blew up boulders. But with the agency’s budgets stretched thin, and a goal to involve the public in taking care of national trails, the Pacific Crest Trail also gets help from a dedicated group of volunteers that keep it passable for hikers and equestrians.

IT SCOURED IT NEAR VERTICAL. IT WAS PRETTY STAGGERING WHEN WE SAW IT.” Brad Peterson, A trail crew foreman At Milk Creek last month, a blast echoed down the valley and sent up a cloud of white smoke and rock bits, as the Forest Service set off explosives to clear the trail. Because this is a national scenic trail, there was more concern with getting it in shape for hikers and horsemen than there would be otherwise, said Abe Quihuis, recreation technician with the Detroit Ranger District. “Any time you have a national recreational trail, it gets

SPOKANE, Wash. New research has bolstered some scientists’ suspicion that large swaths of the Inland Northwest are vulnerable to damaging earthquakes. Seismic activity in Eastern Washington and northern Idaho is relatively low compared to that on the Pacific coast, but scientists are proposing high-tech studies to assess the potential hazards. Several recent earthquakes in north Spokane and southern Stevens County in northeast Washington were so small that no one reported feeling them. They turned up on an advanced network of seismographs covering the Western United States. A “swarm” of minor earthquakes in 2001 and 2002 rattled downtown and north Spokane from depths so close to the surface that seismologists warned that a quake one magnitude stronger could cause serious damage to many of the city’s stock of older buildings. “I think this is a more important issue than Spokane might realize,” Craig Weaver, a seismologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, said about the 2001-2002 earthquake swarm. Similar quakes have occurred periodically in Spokane, while larger ones have been documented across the region since 1872. A magnitude-5.5 quake struck north of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, in 1942, underscoring the potential for stronger tremors in the region. Spokane had been considered a lowhazard area until a 3.7-magnitude tremor shook the city on June 25, 2001. It was the first of more than 50 earthquakes recorded over the next 10 months, the largest of which reached magnitude 4.0. A one-point increase in magnitude on the scale is actually a 10-fold increase in amplitude, so a 5.0 quake is ten times larger than a 4.0 quake. “The fact that it was right there in town was pretty dramatic,” University of Washington seismology professor Steve Malone told The Spokesman-Review.

“What does that mean for the future?” Scientists aren’t sure, but they’re eager to get a better idea of what seismic hazards the region faces. New technologies such as aerial laser mapping and global positioning are helping researchers better understand earth movements. Historically, seismic activity in the Inland Northwest has been concentrated in three or four areas: Walla Walla and MiltonFreewater, Ore., where Columbia Basin geology bumps into the Blue Mountains; southcentral Washington where a “fold and thrust belt” of rock layers occurs; and in the Lake Chelan area where newer volcanic basalt rock meets older types of rock at the north edge of the fold-and-thrust belt. Spokane sits at the northern edge of the volcanic basalts, making it a boundary area where earthquake hazards are typically found. A cluster of four earthquakes with magnitudes of 1.5 to 2.3 struck along the Little Spokane River on the city’s north side in September. Three similarly small quakes occurred earlier this month in southern Stevens County. Recent high-tech laser mapping done in the Puget Sound area has uncovered major earthquake fault lines extending in an eastwest direction toward Eastern Washington. A fault through the Tacoma area along the White River was traced into the crest of the Cascades and is believed to be connected with the Yakima Fold Belt to the east. The USGS is planning aerial laser mapping in the Toppenish Ridge and Yakima areas in hopes of tracing the Tacoma fault line eastward. Scientists increasingly believe that seismic features throughout Washington are interrelated. “We need to figure out how to put all of Washington into a more complete earthquake and tectonic model,” Weaver said. In Spokane, the U.S. Soil and Conservation Service is planning the first high-resolution laser mapping of the urban area, about 400 square miles around the city, Weaver said.

top priority,” he said. Quihuis and others spent the winter and spring getting special permission to use tools like explosives and power drills in the Mount Jefferson Wilderness. Glacial ice and a massive, warm rainstorm probably combined to cause the flood that damaged the trail. Yet a more common occurrence — wildfires — can also cause trail maintenance challenges that last for years. Last year, the Forest Service closed the Pacific Crest Trail twice because of fires in the region. This year it narrowly avoided closing the route for the G.W. Fire, said Chris Sabo, trails specialist with the Deschutes National Forest. “During the G.W. Fire we were concerned about the through-hikers coming through, and if it was to be closed how to reroute them,” he said. “Our main concern during a fire is just getting anybody out of danger.” Fires also have a lasting affect the trail itself. “You lose your forest canopy and all the vegetation,” Sabo said. “It’s a big concern, especially that first winter, that you could have some severe drainage on the trail.” In 2003, the B & B Fire burned over the trail in the Deschutes National Forest. The fire left the volcanic soil even more prone to erosion, said Mike Dawson, trail operations director with the Pacific Crest Trail Association.

REACHING OUT: Getting large institutions to begin recycling is no easy job. But the recycling itself is easy, thanks to service providers that can provide the supplies needed to gather recyclables and the regular weekly or daily pick-ups.

Getting big business to recycle is simple Dear EarthTalk: The hospital I work at doesn’t recycle at all, not even plastic bottles and cans or food service trays. I was wondering how to get the facility to start up some kind of recycling system? Adrianna Schultz via e-mail

GETTING A LARGE INSTITUTION OR CORPORATION

on board with recycling is no easy job, especially when you are starting from scratch. A good place to begin is to get permission from higher-ups to solicit bids from waste haulers and recyclers interested in new business. Such service providers can provide you with both the supplies needed to gather recyclables as well as regular weekly or daily pick-ups, depending on needs. If convincing your employer to look into recycling in the first place is a stumbling block, there are many resources available to help turn that tide. The Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation (RIRRC), a state agency dedicated to helping Ocean State businesses manage solid waste in environmentally sound ways, publishes “In the Workplace,” a print and online pamphlet that outlines the steps for setting up a workplace recycling and reduction program. According to RIRRC, wannabe workplace recyclers need to start by securing organizational support and commitment and educating fellow employees about the importance of recycling. The pamphlet also includes useful tips about reducing waste altogether. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s “Recycling Works” program offers a similar set of guidelines specifically for recycling at hospitals and health care institutions. Additionally, New York State’s Department of Environmental Conservation publishes a free guide showing health care facilities how to evaluate their performance in preventing waste and pollution and

identify opportunities for recycling and for cutting back resource use. Another good resource for information on hospital recycling is the website of the nonprofit Waste Reduction Resource Center, which offers case studies detailing how several small and large health care facilities coast-tocoast have launched successful and money-saving recycling and waste reduction programs. Examples include a Vermont hospital with no budget for recycling that set up a self-sustaining, money-saving system for organics collection and composting, and a Pennsylvania hospital that now saves $150,000 a year due to the implementation of its recycling program. Those looking to reduce waste in hospitals should be sure to consult the “Plan-Do-Check-Act” section of the Sustainable Hospitals website. The summary provides useful tools for getting management approvals and enlisting the support of employees in both recycling and lowering disposable product consumption. It also has a section on how to reduce energy usage. Implementing recycling and waste reduction programs at hospitals makes sense not only for local ecology and for institutional bottom line, but also for the examples that can be set for the millions of patients and workers that pass through the health care system every day.

Ceramics maker goes green BY JEFF BARNARD I AP Environmental Writer GRANTS PASS, Ore. A lot of people talk about sustainability. Barry Russell, CEO of a small high-end decorative tile manufacturer called Encore Ceramics, goes way past the point that he can obviously justify it for the bottom line. All three cars owned by the company are hybrids. Russell buys carbon-offsets for air and highway miles logged by the company. Solar panels on the roof produce some electricity and the rest is green-tagged. More solar panels are going in. Leftover clay and glazes are recycled so they don’t become pollution. Packaging is almost exclusively recycled paper. Motion-detector switches turn lights on and off automatically. “Am I crazy?” says Russell. “Maybe.” Not so much crazy as ahead of the curve in a growing business ethic that is saying companies need to save energy, recycle more, produce less waste, and reduce the need for foreign oil, said James Sweeney, professor of management science and engineering at Stanford University. “Most every company I ever worked with has its own internal set of principles that restrict them from being willing to do a group of things that may be legal but they think are unethical,” said Sweeney. “What seems to be happening now, more and more, is understanding one of those ethical principles is that we need to take personal responsibility for our impacts on the environment.” When it comes to acting on that ethic, small privately held companies like Encore Ceramics have a big advantage over large publicly held ones, said Deborah Gallagher, professor of environmental policy at Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment. “You have stockholders and other stockholders that are interested in the bottom line, and they only let the public corporations go so far,” she said. “If you have a private company it’s a little easier. The same goes for small versus large.”

However, dominant corporations have a far greater impact when they take meaningful steps to go green, such as Wal-Mart demanding its suppliers become more sustainable, she added. She remains skeptical large corporations will go to the lengths that some small companies are going to without government mandates, or that sustainability will have much impact on the environment until more major corporations make big commitments.

THEY ARE NOT GIVING UP SOMETHING IN ORDER TO BE GREEN.” Kathy Sheehan,

Senior vice president of GfK Roper Consulting

One big hurdle CEOs face is accounting for the benefits of sustainable manufacturing practices, such as disposing of hazardous wastes, recycling, and dependence on foreign oil. Likewise, there are few computer tools for engineers and designers that easily calculate the embedded energy costs and recyclability of materials the way there are to figure the strength and flexibility. But as manufacturers face the prospects of taxes on greenhouse gases, tougher disposal laws, and penalties for not using green power — all being talked about in California — companies like Encore Ceramics will be ahead of the curve, said David Dornfeld, professor of manufacturing engineering at the University of California at Berkeley. Conventional accounting practices don’t reflect them. Breakthroughs can be expected once a company commits to examining every aspect of a business through the lens of sustainability, said Jim Hartzfeld, managing director of InterfaceRAISE LLC, a sustainability consulting

firm that is a spinoff of Interface Inc., an Atlanta carpet tile manufacturer dedicated to sustainability. He advises companies that beyond cutting costs for energy and waste, embracing sustainability can improve their reputation, attract better employees, get better performance out of employees and foster innovation. “It’s a huge business opportunity to retool and reimagine what you do,” he said. Hartzfeld credits the sustainability lens with two breakthroughs at Interface. One was making each carpet tile a little bit different from the others in a given lot, eliminating the need for a customer to buy extra for replacements because the dye in the next lot wouldn’t match exactly. The other was a decision to develop a process to make carpet backing from recycled materials. “We invested $12 million in a new way of making carpet tile backing that was barely penciled out as an investment at $25 (per barrel) oil,” he said. “These guys look like geniuses now.” Still, getting consumers to accept green products remains a tough sell, said Kathy Sheehan, senior vice president of GfK Roper Consulting, which produces the annual Green Gauge report on consumers and the environment. More than 70 percent of consumers contacted for Green Gauge say a company’s environmental practices are important in deciding what products they buy, where they shop, where they work, and where they invest. But 74 percent say green products are too expensive and 61 percent feel they don’t work as well. “They are not giving up something in order to be green,” Sheehan said. “One of the themes that comes out is that if you can make it easy for people, it is much more likely to be effective.” Russell’s epiphany came 15 years ago while working at a different tile manufacturer in Santa Rosa, Calif., where an engineer friend explained the threats to future generations from global warming.

Expo Line gets second look BY KEVIN HERRERA Daily Press Staff Writer

DOWNTOWN Citing preliminary reports that have the Exposition Light Rail line traveling through Santa Monica down the middle of Olympic Boulevard with elevated sections in downtown that could be as high as 35 feet, city officials are spending $300,000 to have other options considered. The Exposition Construction Authority will consider which routes will undergo further environmental review on Thursday, Nov. 1. City staff has issues with the rail line traveling down Olympic Boulevard to a potential Fourth Street station adjacent to the Civic Center and a renovated Santa Monica Place mall. As currently proposed, the rail line would travel down the mid-section of Olympic, which would require the removal of the landscaped median and coral trees. Staff would like the Expo Authority to consider removing one lane of traffic on each side of the median to preserve the landscaped median, coral trees and the green boulevard along Olympic. “The future Exposition light rail line is critically important to Santa Monica and it is crucial that the project serve the community in the best way possible,” Ellen Gelbard, deputy director of special projects, wrote in a city staff report. “Much of the future land use planning focuses on the Exposition light rail and the incredible opportunity that it presents.” There is also an issue with the Olympic route and how it connects with downtown. Current studies have the rail line rising as high as 35 feet above street level to cross Lincoln Boulevard and freeway ramps before connecting with the Fourth Street station, which would also be raised. “It is important that the light rail station be well integrated into our downtown and the likelihood is vastly improved if the station is at-grade and easily accessible,” Gelbard wrote. Councilman Kevin McKeown said he finds the idea of having elevated portions of the rail line “appalling.” Other members of the council agreed. Their preference seems to be Colorado Avenue. Under this proposal, the rail line would use the Expo right of way until it ends at 17th Street, where the alignment would transition to run down the middle of Colorado to downtown. City staff considers this to be a more pedestrian friendly alternative. Russell Sydney from the Sustainable Transport Club in Santa Monica, told

IF YOU THINK PEOPLE ARE UPSET ABOUT FICUS TREES, WAIT AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE CONSTRUCTION AUTHORITY STARTS GOING AFTER CORAL TREES.” Russell Sydney, Sustainable Transport Club “I think one of the important elements is the character of Olympic Boulevard,” Sydney said. “If you think people are upset about ficus trees, wait and see what happens when the construction authority starts going after coral trees.” Sydney was referring to the controversy over the council’s decision to remove ficus

removal of one lane of traffic in each direction. City staff believes the majority of parking spaces could be retained on Colorado and have minimal impact on traffic given that the majority of drivers use Colorado east of 20th Street where the Water Gardens complex is located. It is believed that the Colorado option

would be less expensive than the Olympic aerial alignment. It would also avoid the issue of median and coral tree removal. City staff is looking at other issues as well, including the placement of stations near Cloverfield Boulevard and 17th Street. Current studies show the easternmost station located above Cloverfield in an aerial configuration. The construction authority has indicated both aerial and at-grade stations will be evaluated. City staff believes a station should be located at Bergamot Station, which has been the plan ever since that property was purchased by City Hall. In Mid-City, staff is concerned about the placement of a station to connect with Santa Monica College. Currently, the construction authority is not committed to a third station, just the one at Cloverfield and in downtown. City staff is hoping they can convince the authority to put a station at 17th Street and Colorado because of its proximity to SMC and its ability to connect with Big Blue Bus routes. kevinh@smdp.com

Loyola Marymount professor earns a Nobel FROM NOBEL PAGE 1 IPCC, a collaboration of scientists, that earned the prize in the category of peace. “It’s a great honor to be part of that process that led to the peace prize,” Pal said. The 37-year-old Pal was born in Santa Monica and raised in Venice, graduated from Lincoln Middle School and later from Santa Monica High School in 1988. He went on to attend Santa Monica College for a brief period of time before moving on to Loyola Marymount University where he graduated with his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and later MIT for his post-graduate studies. Before he joined the faculty at his alma mater, Pal worked for five years at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics as a scientist.

Pal, who now lives in Westchester, was attracted to the field of environmental science because of his love for natural resources and the great outdoors. “We are natural and we are part of nature,” he said. Founded in 1988 by the World Meteorological Association and the United Nations Environmental Programme, the IPCC aims to find a scientific consensus as to what is happening to the climate, assessing published reports and research. The group is split into three different focus groups and one task force, each assessing a different aspect of climate change, from the options of limiting greenhouse gases to the negative and positive effects of climate change. Pal, who joined the Swizterland-based organization three years ago, focuses his work on regionalizing projections of potential global warming, exploring weather data on regions

such as Los Angeles and parts of Europe and Asia. “I look at changes in extreme temperatures and precipitation ... and see how that would impact water resources and agriculture and human health,” Pal said. Several of the IPCC’s working groups issued reports earlier this year that concluded that most global warming to date has been caused by human beings and is virtually certain to increase or continue in the future due to human activities, one of the biggest culprits being emission. “There’s a lot of pride in the sense that the product developed by the IPCC is really well received and now the dissemination of the report is going to be wider,” said Dr. Kristen Averyt, spokeswoman for the IPCC. “The public in particular will really get to know the product.” melodyh@smdp.com

Fire survivors count blessings FROM FIRES PAGE 3 Daniel Berlant, a spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. But there was a possibility of strong offshore winds in another seven days, he said. It was the onset of the seasonal Santa Anas — fierce, dry winds blowing from the desert and out to sea — that spread fires across more than 500,000 acres of Southern California during the week, chasing a half-million people from communities as homes burned. Despite the destruction, so many who lost so much still gave thanks at church services in some of the hardest-hit communities. At the Rancho Bernardo Community Presbyterian Church, where 60 families lost their homes, they gave thanks for the big things: for lives saved, for families, for friendships. They also gave thanks for small things: a hug, a shoulder to cry on. Nancy Hylbert gave thanks for a wrought iron ice cream table and chairs that survived outside, and a terra cotta cat statue from her garden. “They are the only links with my past,” she said. “I feel a little bit like an amnesiac with no link to my past.” Barbara Warden escaped her home with only three boxes of photographs and

WE HAVE A LOT TO BE THANKFUL FOR. WE HAVE EACH OTHER.” Barbara Warden, Wildfire survivor A day earlier, she sifted through the ashes of her home and found a sundial given to her by her husband. It was engraved with the message: “Grow old along with me. The best is yet to be.” “That says it all, doesn’t it?” she said. “We have a lot to be thankful for. We have each other.” At Crestline, in the Lake Arrowhead region of the fire-ravaged San Bernardino Mountains, about 25 members of the Community Presbyterian Church had to piece together their own worship service because their interim pastor couldn’t get a resident’s card, the crucial piece of identification needed to drive past roadblocks. A sign outside the church said, “Life is

order to leave town. “Praise the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, we have lucked out much more than we deserve,” said Bill Lange, a scientist who led the service. “Dear Lord, thank you for sparing us again and thank you for helping all the people who needed the help.” As the organist started playing “Here I Am, Lord,” several women wiped tears from under their glasses. Symbolizing the region’s improving outlook, San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium was surrounded by thousands of people Sunday — but this time they were National Football League fans, not fire evacuees. The San Diego Chargers’ game against the Houston Texans brought out crowds

of tailgaters following a week in which it had seemed the contest would have to be moved somewhere else. Heidi Schutte was among volunteers soliciting the crowd for donations to aid fire victims. Her bucket was filled with $5 and $10 bills. “People have been very generous. There’s no change in here — all bills,” she said. Monika and Cody Dayton partied with 18-month-old son Aidan and friends at table full of chips and dips and a small grill. The Daytons hadn’t been affected by the fires, but had taken in evacuees, and Monika Dayton said she had been among the many people who brought donated goods to the stadium while it was serving as a shelter. Before the game, the crowd gave an ovation to a group of firefighters, law enforcement officers and National Guard members. Four firefighters led the Chargers onto the field, and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, surrounded by fire and police chiefs and team captains, presided over the coin toss. As of Sunday, the state Office of Emergency Services tallied 2,767 structures destroyed. OES spokeswoman Kim Oliver said the number included 2,013 homes. With more than a dozen fires fully surrounded, firefighters were pushing to complete lines around seven others.

but he declined further comment. Each parent will have a day with the boys this weekend, Kaplan said during a short news conference. The three-hour hearing was held before Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon, who previously said there was evidence that Spears is a “habitual, frequent and continuous” user of drugs and alcohol. He had withdrawn approval for her to even visit the children after finding she had failed to comply with some conditions for shared custody. He later withdrew the ban and allowed her to visit Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1 — but only in the presence of a court-approved monitor. Spears arrived at the courthouse on Friday eating cheese puffs in her white Mercedes-Benz convertible. She giggled when asked by reporters outside the courtroom if she was nervous. She was escorted by sheriff ’s deputies and wore a black print dress and cowgirl boots. Her brown hair was lightly streaked with blonde highlights and she carried a large handbag. Federline arrived a few minutes after Spears, wearing a gray pinstriped suit and an earring in his right ear. Both were under court order to attend the proceedings. They were asked to stand, raise their right hands and swear to tell the truth, which they did. A few moments later, Gordon closed the hearing to the media at the request of Trope, who was expected to argue that Spears had complied with court orders and should regain the shared custody she lost earlier this month. During a morning hearing, another lawyer for Spears won a motion to bar videotaping of deposition testimony in the case. Attorney Thomas Paine Dunlap argued that video of the depositions would almost certainly wind up on YouTube. He said his celebrity client had a right to be protected from that exposure. Gordon made his ruling on that matter despite his concern that Spears is constantly courting attention.

COMMUNITYPROFILES RYAN MCMILLEN

McMillen is an unlikely activist FROM CP PAGE 3 CNN’s website. “I just thought I should do something with it,” he said. “I sat on it for six hours … then decided to upload it. Someone from CNN’s iReporter called me. Later I got contacted by a guy with a British accent, which I guess meant that he was higher up.” McMillen wasn’t comfortable with putting the Daily Press in touch with his source “for obvious reasons,” he said. Those reasons involve a government that has a record of committing gross infringements on its citizens’ freedoms. One such citizen, Aung San Suu Kyi, Leader of the National League for Democracy political party, has been detained on and off by Burma’s Junta government since 1989. Suu Kyi, an advocate for nonviolent resistance against the Junta, has won numerous awards including the Sakharov Prize from the European Parliament, United States Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Jawaharlal Nehru Award from India and the Noble Peace Prize for her human rights efforts. The U.N. Security Council, in an Oct. 11 report, stressed the importance of early release for all political prisoners being detained by the government of Burma. “It also calls on the Government of Myanmar and all other parties concerned to work together toward a de-escalation of the situation and a peaceful solution,” the report stated.

Shortly after McMillen uploaded the video of the Nagai shooting, the government of Burma reportedly cut itself of from the rest of the World Wide Web. Following recent hikes in Burmese gas prices, citizens rose up in protest.

IT TAKES A FOREIGNER BEING KILLED TO SHED LIGHT ON WHAT’S GOING ON OVER THERE.” Ryan McMillen SMC instructor

The Junta, frustrated by the wave of videos being transmitted out of the country from Internet cafes, took measures to shut down the country’s Internet and cell phone service. Several media sources cited McMillen’s act of cyber reporting for the communications blackout, but he feels it was just something he had to do. “Something happened in translation from the reporter to the editor and I was blamed for shutting down the Internet in Burma,” said McMillen. “It takes a foreigner being killed to shed light on what’s going on over there.” news@smdp.com

ago for California goalkeeper Jorden LaFontaine-Kussmann — lymphoma. Now the 18-year-old freshman is about to undergo her second round of chemotherapy to attack a large mass in the middle of her chest. When she told her friends on the men’s soccer team she will soon be bald, they beat her to it: They shaved their heads in support. “She’s amazing,” said Jordan Bethke, a freshman goalie on the Cal men’s team. “She’s dealing with it like a champ.” LaFontaine-Kussmann is handling her ordeal with a sense of humor and sense of purpose. She insists she will be back on the field for the 2008 season. “I kind of just feel like I’m injured for six months,” she said. “I will pick back up where I left off. Not playing soccer is not an option.” LaFontaine-Kussmann is staying in school, choosing not to return home to Lakewood, Wash., for treatment because of the support at Cal. The men’s players sporting what are now buzz cuts — the hair is growing back and they plan to shave again — but that’s just the beginning. Her teammates are wearing navy blue wristbands with the initials “JLK” and lime green warmup shirts donated by the Missouri women’s soccer team. The Cal players also had green bracelets made in honor of Jorde, as they call her, and are plan-

ning a head scarf and hat party so she is prepared to stay warm this winter. Teammate Megan Jesolva cut her hair to have a wig made for LaFontaine-Kussmann. Cal also is trying to get former players involved. “I sent an e-mail out to the coaches in Division I and asked if they had any experiences to share,” first-year Cal coach Neil McGuire said. “The overwhelming response has been incredible. Not only are we mobilizing but so are other programs.” When the Bears play at Arizona State on Friday night, the Sun Devils will wear wristbands in her honor. Former Cal coach Kevin Boyd is now at ASU, and he recruited LaFontaine-Kussmann. She will move into an apartment next week, with one of her sisters who has relocated to the Bay Area to help. Her parents also will be around regularly. Because her cancer affects the cells of the immune system, LaFontaine-Kussmann has to be extra careful not to get sick. After her chemo treatments, which last anywhere from six to eight hours at a time, she is zapped. So having her own space and being out of the dorms will allow her to be much more comfortable as she recovers. She will have five more chemo sessions spaced over three-week spans, followed by two months of radiation. The last thing she wants is to be treated as if she is sick. “Why be down and depressed about it?” she said. “I have the best situation going — a school that cares. I kind of feel lucky.”

NCAA FOOTBALL

Little changes atop AP poll BY RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer

NEW YORK Be careful, Boston College. The Eagles were the new No. 2 in the Top 25 released Sunday, a ranking that’s been more of a burden than a reward recently. The second-ranked team in The Associated Press poll has lost three consecutive weeks. BC faces its toughest test of the season Thursday night at No. 8 Virginia Tech. Ohio State is No. 1 in the media poll for the second consecutive week, receiving 57 first-place votes. BC was idle this week but moved up one spot after South Florida became the latest No. 2 to lose, joining Southern California and California. The Bulls lost 30-27 at Rutgers on Thursday night. The Eagles received two first-place votes and 1,494 points, giving them a small lead on No. 3 LSU. The Tigers moved up two spots, hopping over No. 4 Oklahoma, and received two first-place votes and 1,479 points after beating Auburn 30-24 on a last-second touchdown. Auburn fell five spots to No. 23 after the loss. Oregon was No. 5, up two spots, and No. 6 West Virginia moved up three places. Ohio State, Boston College, LSU, Arizona State and Oregon were the top five teams in the second Bowl Championship Series standings released Sunday. After four top 10 teams lost last week, four new teams moved up to replace USF, South Carolina, Kentucky and Cal.

No. 7 Arizona State, which received one first-place vote, moved up five places without playing this week. The unbeaten Sun Devils (7-0), who have their highest ranking since ending the 1996 season No. 4, play Cal on Saturday. Virginia Tech jumped three spots and Florida and Southern California also moved back into the top 10. The Gators and Trojans are tied for ninth. Boston College hasn’t been ranked this high since the Eagles were No. 1 in 1942. South Florida dropped nine spots to No. 11 after its first loss of the season. No. 12 Kansas, one of the five remaining unbeaten teams in major college football, has its highest ranking since finishing the 1995 season No. 9. No. 13 Missouri is followed by Kentucky, which lost to 45-37 to Florida, and South Carolina, which was upset 17-6 at home by Vanderbilt and fell nine spots. No. 16 Hawaii (7-0) is the lowest ranked of the unbeaten teams. No. 17 Texas, California, which dropped eight spots, Michigan and Georgia round out the top 20. Four new teams entered the rankings this week, including No. 21 Virginia. The Cavaliers are in for the first time since 2005. No. 22 Alabama, No. 24 Penn State and No. 25 Rutgers moved back into the rankings after victories. Falling out this week after loses were Texas Tech, Cincinnati, Tennessee and Kansas State.

Blast off Although he typically shuns attention, former astronaut NEIL ARMSTRONG on Saturday addressed a crowd at the dedication of a new engineering building named for him at Purdue University, his alma mater. Armstrong, the first person to step foot on the moon, said the faculty, not the building’s name, would make it valuable to students.

Former astronaut Armstrong helps dedicate Purdue University building moon on July 20, 1969. NASA chose Armstrong to descend a ladder and leave the first lunar footprints. In the decades since, Armstrong has never been as visible as Buzz Aldrin, who followed him out of the Eagle and onto the lunar surface, said James Hansen, an Auburn University professor. Hansen, who authored Armstrong’s 2005 autobiography, said

“We dedicate this building today, but by itself, it cannot impart knowledge. It requires people,” Armstrong, 77, told a crowd of about 350 who gathered for the dedication. Armstrong, who graduated from Purdue in 1955 with a degree in aeronautical engineering, gained international fame when the Eagle, Apollo 11’s lunar module, landed on the

Armstrong understands his fame, but he’s always been a bit uncomfortable with it because it was somewhat coincidental. “It’s because he was the first,” Hansen said. “He’s embarrassed about that a little bit because he and Buzz landed at the same time. For various reasons, he was the one selected to go down the ladder first.” Sixteen of Purdue’s 22 graduates who became

astronauts attended Saturday’s dedication, including Gene Cernan, who was the last man to walk on the moon in Apollo 17’s December 1972 lunar visit. Jerry Ross, another Purdue graduate who became an astronaut, said Armstrong has kept his modesty despite his accomplishment and his famous first words. ASSOCIATED PRESS

While in Hawaii, the actress from “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” turned on a TV and the show was on. “I was like, ‘Argh, I can’t get away from it.’ I turned it off and ran outside and of course people were like, ‘Oh my God you’re on TV right now!” the television detective told Newsweek magazine for editions on newsstands Monday.

Kim apologizes for his DUI arrest in Hawaii DANIEL DAE KIM, one of the stars on ABC’s “Lost,” has apologized for his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving. Kim said he was deeply ashamed and embarrassed and will fully cooperate with police, in a statement issued Friday by his publicist, Cindy Guagenti. “It saddens me to know that I jeopardized the welfare of the kind people of Hawaii, a community that I love and call my home,” the statement said. Honolulu Police arrested Kim early Thursday after an

officer spotted him driving erratically at about 2:30 a.m. He was booked at the downtown police station and released after posting bail. He had a blood-alcohol level of 0.168, twice the legal limit. “To my friends, family, colleagues and fans, thank you for your kind words of support.” Kim said. “To those I have disappointed I can only ask that you accept my heartfelt apologies. I am truly, truly sorry.”

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS The stars show the kind of day you’ll have:

★★★★★ Dynamic ★★★★ Positive ★★★ Average ★★ So-So ★ Difficult

Happy Birthday! Often, life is a mixed bag, especially this year. On some level, a partnership will be intrinsic to your well-being. You will test the waters intellectually, emotionally and any other way you could possibly devise. Your imagination seems limitless. Questioning and playing devil’s advocate is positive but not controlling. Your finances need careful managing, and spending too much could be tempting. Always remember your long-term goals.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

★★★ Clear your messages. Make sure all parties are satisfied with agreements. You might find that this isn’t the case and you assumed otherwise. Encourage openness from others. You might need to curb your temper a touch! Tonight: Happy to be home.

★★★★ Imagine what it might be like to be someone else. Be relentless in the pursuit of more information and knowledge. Through this avenue, you’ll find new answers. Find an expert if need be. Expect a lot of requests. Tonight: Could be late.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

★★★ Juggling your finances might not be what you want to do, but it’s what you need to do. Your understanding reaches a new level once you settle a hassle and can relax. Exchange ideas. Tonight: Dinner with a friend.

★★★ Someone makes a heavy overture and means it. How important is it to maintain your independence? Don’t allow pressure to build financially. Handle a problem before it handles you. Tonight: Play a game or listen to music.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

1:00, 4:30, 8:00

★★★★ You might feel overwhelmed by everything that is on your plate; just dig in rather than talk or groan. Slowly, you will see a difference. Seriously consider an expenditure that might be a timesaver. Tonight: Do some price comparison.

★★★★ Others continue to claim their power. Instead of feeling left out or tromped on, look at this period as your personal escape from responsibility. Do what you want for a change. Don’t worry. Tonight: Say yes to an offer or suggestion.

Slipstream (R)

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

★★★ Though your mood often comes through, saying less might be the best way to work through an issue. If you listen and observe, you’ll discover a faulty judgment. State your case only when you are sure. Tonight: You feel more like yourself!

★★★ Take the plunge. Get as much done as possible. Jump over obstacles. You will find that if you turn around later, these “hassles” will have disappeared. Schedule appointments for later in the day. Tonight: People time.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

★★★★ Use the daylight hours for a cause. You will get results as long as you don’t take a moment or event personally. Keep at it. Friends and meetings play an unusually significant role. Ask for support if need be. Tonight: Vanish. Just for you.

★★★★ You can put a spin on nearly anything if left to your wiles. The problem might be that you are none too grounded in the long run. Take a hard look at facts. Refocus on your longterm path. Tonight: Honor the fact that you might be tired.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

★★★★ Others seek you out. On some level you might wonder if you have enough responsibilities. Your shoulders are about to become broader, as others clearly need your help. Aim for what you want. Tonight: Don’t sell yourself short.

★★★ Recognize your priorities, and you will be in good shape. Everyone has limits — you included. You might need to get your inner house in order before you start a new project or idea. Finish what remains today. Tonight: Your mind spins out.

â?š Contrary Thinking: (1) Three U.S. finance professors, working with business data provided to the government of Denmark, concluded that a company's profitability usually falls following a death in the CEO's immediate family. However, the professors found (according to a September Wall Street Journal report), that profitability slightly increased if the family death was that of the CEO's mother-in-law. (2) The Tata Group, a Mumbai, India, company that handles customer-service calls for several U.S. firms, has outsourced some of its work to a firm in Ohio (according to an August Fortune magazine report), on behalf of a client that insists on operators knowledgeable about American geography.

TODAY IN HISTORY The Harvard University 1921 football team loses to Centre College, ending a 25 game winning streak. This is considered one of the biggest upsets in college football. The New York Stock Exchange crashes in what will be called the Crash of '29 or "Black Tuesday," ending the Great Bull Market of the 1920s and beginning the Great Depression. In Louisville, Kentucky, Cassius Clay (who later takes the name Muhammad Ali) wins his first professional fight. A collection of irreplaceable gems, including the 565 carat (113 g) Star of India, is stolen by a group of thieves including Jack Murphy from the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The first-ever computer-to-computer link is established on ARPANET, the precursor to the Internet. Vietnam War: Vietnamization - The total number of American troops still in Vietnam drops to a record low of 196,700 (the lowest level since January 1966). Demonstration flight of a secretly modified C-130 for an Iran hostage crisis rescue attempt ends in crash landing at Eglin Air Force Base's Duke Field, Florida leading to cancellation of Operation Credible Sport. After years of delays, the 63rd Street Tunnel opens for service, the first expansion of the New York City subway system since 1967. The American Galileo spacecraft makes its closest approach to 951 Gaspra, becoming the first probe to visit an asteroid.
