Letters More on mobile home parks

In

response to Mr. Trigo’s letter [“Seniors in mobile home parks,” Nov. 27, 2019]: I, too, am a senior, living in the Imperial Mobile Home Park — though you’d have a hard time identifying the park as the sign fell down and has never been repaired or replaced. The park went from family-owned to being owned by a faceless corporation. The corporation got rid of ALL park office staff — locked the office — we have no on-site manager or administration. And no regular maintenance. What was once our beautiful shuffleboard building now has broken windows, missing screens, rotting wood, and is used as a dumping area for broken furniture, etc. Our card and reading room is also locked and unclean. The laundry room, which I need to use, is disgusting. Recently, gaping potholes in the streets were repaired and we residents are being charged for this expense. Some of my neighbors have called the park’s management company up north, only to be hung up on or rudely answered. I wrote to [Ventura County Supervisor] Steve Bennett at the county. He answered that I had very legitimate complaints but informed me that the park falls under the city’s purview. Is there no one to oversee the conditions in these mobile home parks, which are becom-

ing “pocket” slums here in Ventura?! To quote Mr. Trigo, “Where do we go now?” Or do I go the way of so many of my good neighbors, who cut their losses and moved out of the park and Ventura! L.M. East Ventura

More on Turkey Day politics It takes audacity to write a letter like Robert Chianese [“Turkey Day and politics,” Nov. 27, 2019]. It takes stupidity on the part of the VCReporter to publish statements like “we are all in agreement on Trump’s perfidy, etc. etc.” Especially on a Thanksgiving Day publication. Well guess what? We are all far from agreement. Spreading this untruthful garbage is as bad as creating: It is not true, it is not public interest, it is not in the least constructive. Like many, hopefully a majority in this sometimes insane state, I disagree vehemently. We should be thankful to have a president that has done so much for our country, that has actually kept his promises (unlike the “real” politicians) and that turns a cheek to this type of abuse by the press. May the people that spread this kind of hate, for hate’s sake, realize their errors. David Cristofar Ventura

Making a real difference by Paul Moomjean

raduating college is a rite of passage in our society. From the ages of 18 to 22, young adults enter institutions of learning and hope that they will acquire the proper skills to create job opportunities for themselves. While this model has prepared many for a life working a 40-hour work week, the model has also created burnout and a lack of fulfillment amongst recent generations. According to a 2017 Bureau of Labor study, millennials are more likely to go through multiple jobs and different careers than the baby boomers before them, who stayed within their industry, jumping maybe once to try something new. California State University, Channel Islands, in Camarillo is finding a way for students to mix their education and desire to expand through a new Peace Corps placement program that is proving to provide real value and much-needed real-world experience. LinkedIn also performed a study, finding that millennials “will change jobs an average of four times in their first decade out of col-

lege, compared to about two job changes by Gen Xers their first ten years out of college.” Why the difference? While many people of a previous generation saw their family as the primary focus, young people today aren’t just thinking locally, but globally. While college textbook theory has its appeal, real life application can become disappointing. “There is actually very clearly a long-term trend that if we’re talking about generations, current generations do switch jobs more clearly, for sure,” says Judith Scott-Clayton, an associate professor of economics and education at Teachers College, Columbia University. “When you step back and look at today compared to generations ago, people do change jobs more today.” Too often, new college graduates don’t get the opportunity to see how the whole world functions, creating a lack of wisdom and experience to bring fresh ideas outside of social media techniques. CSU Channel Islands is looking to fix that. Last year, the Peace Corps recognized the university as one of the top volunteer-producing, minority-serving institutions. There were 11 students who qualified for the program that

encourages and creates international volunteer opportunities. Andrea Grove, a political science professor at the university, acknowledged that students are able to create a blend of what they’re learning in school and the ability to give back to their cultures instead of Fortune 500 companies. “I think finding a balance between preserving my American cultural values versus being open and accepting to the cultural values of the country I serve in has been the most challenging,” said student Karina Renee Casarez, who is now teaching in Myanmar. Grove understands and notices students are intimidated by the process and expectations, but Casarez feels she was well prepared due to CSU Channel Islands’ program. The new program will focus on challenging coursework and developing volunteer work hours, and also offer much-needed language classes and courses on intercultural understanding. CSU Channel Islands’ Peace Corps program requires students to take three courses related to the work area they are studying. Options include health, agriculture, community economic development, education, environment

and youth in development. A minimum of 50 hours of volunteer or work experience is also required in that same industry. Today’s youth is looking at alternative economic systems because they see a lack of helping others in modern capitalism. While Bernie Sanders-style socialism may sound ideal, it won’t actually fill the void of wanting to help fellow members of humanity. The Peace Corps program will give these idealists real hands-on challenges to force them to reevaluate how they can be the change in the world they hope government would be. This program will give students an opportunity to live in different economic and social systems, and they will be able to see what is and isn’t working around the world. While chosen students are technically volunteering their time to the Peace Corps, the volunteers earn $10,000 over their two years of reaching out and making a difference. What this program also does is provide a real adventure and ability to enter adulthood with new perspectives. While the generation before stressed at a desk for 30 years, the next generation will be able to enter a workforce with real experience, creating new paths for America to trek in to. ♦

Emergency ordinance passes

Ventura bans no-fault evictions through Jan. 1, 2020 by Kimberly Rivers

City council approves a five-year lease at the former Salvation Army thrift store

krivers@timespublications.com

O

n Monday, Dec. 2, the Ventura City Council unanimously approved an emergency ordinance banning no-fault evictions between now and Jan. 1, 2020, when AB1482, deemed The Tenant Protection Act, takes effect. “The council directed my office to prepare an emergency ordinance,” said Gregory Diaz, Ventura City Attorney on Monday night at the public meeting. That direction came as a result of the Nov. 18 meeting, when several speakers reported evictions and fear of potential evictions. Diaz said the intention is to “protect innocent tenants evicted

potential pathway for tenants who have already received no-cause notices to vacate to utilize the new ordinance to fight the evictions and stay in their homes. “Clearly [the ordinance] would apply to anyone that would receive a notice or have an eviction filed in court tomorrow,” said Diaz, because the emergency rules take effect immediately. But he said in cases where a tenant has already received a notice — before Dec. 2 — that has not yet been filed in court, it is an “unsettled matter of law” as to whether the new emergency ordinance applies. He said tenants in that situation should “get a certified copy of this ordinance,” and

1926. “We have to break out all the walls, run new electrical. All new windows. Remove the roof that is over the garage . . . [install] hard wired smoke detectors. . . . [The inspector] didn’t like the wiring, even though it is to code. It’s old knob and tube, he didn’t like the condition.” Snyder declined to give the name of the electrical inspector. “He told me he was going to red tag the building,” which would mean it would have to be immediately vacated. “[The inspector] gave me a week to come up with a plan to get the work done.” Snyder sent word to the city that he could have

AB1482 includes limits on allowable increases in rent. Clusters of recent evictions are being attributed to an attempt by some landlords to clear out rental units to set new higher rents. On Dec. 2, the only public speaker opposed to the action was Jorge DeLeon with the Ventura County Coastal Association of Realtors. He said an informal survey revealed that “approximately eight properties were given notices of eviction because of AB1482,” which didn’t create the need for a “kneejerk reaction,” and that it “sets a bad precedence” by responding to something that is “not necessarily happening in our community.” In addition, Diaz pointed out a

that it is “certainly worth raising that to a court down the line.” Diaz included the recent evictions of all tenants at 1313 Buena Vista St. in Ventura as evidence of the need for the emergency ordinance. Tenants were given 90-day notices to vacate due to extensive construction for necessary upgrades. Diaz said the 13-unit building had “some violations . . . we believe the work can be performed safely on the property without requiring the tenants to move out.” He also said that the city has started a “code enforcement case,” but the city has not yet “red tagged” the building, i.e., deemed it unsafe to live in. “I do not agree with that opinion,” said Steven Snyder, owner of Oaktree Property Management that manages the building at 1313 Buena Vista, speaking to the VCReporter by phone on Dec. 3. He noted that numerous improvements were needed to upgrade the building, which was built in

the building vacated by the end of January so that all of the work could be done. “[The city] never really responded, they backed off . . . didn’t serve any notices. I thought we had an agreement.” As of Dec. 3, half of the building is vacated and Snyder says that most tenants “understand; they are not happy, but they understand.” He said that prior to the city’s action on Dec. 2, only one tenant said they weren’t going to move; after the meeting, one other tenant said they were not going to move. “I don’t think what the city has done is legal,” Snyder said, adding that Oaktree Property Management gave out notices to vacate over a month ago. “I don’t see how the city thinks that [the tenants] can live there . . . in the middle of a construction zone, I don’t think it will be safe . . . This is not a situation of asking people to move so we can remodel and get more rent.” ♦

xnard’s city council voted Nov. 19 to sign a five-year lease for a building that will be converted into a year-round homeless shelter near the city’s busy Five Points intersection. The 5-2 decision — councilmembers Gabriela Basua and Oscar Madrigal dissented — lets Mayor Tim Flynn sign a lease for the building at 1258 Saviers Road that was previously a Salvation Army thrift store. Flynn indicated before the meeting that he would support the move and that the location fit with what he had in mind for a permanent homeless shelter. “There aren’t many locations that are suitable for shelter in any city, this one came up, so we pursued it,” Flynn said. “What I always envisioned was a shelter not in the core of the city but on the outskirts, ideally the best location would be next to the many services that [homeless] people need.” The site is just south of Five Points, one of Oxnard’s busiest intersections where Saviers, Wooley and Oxnard roads all meet in a business district with motels, restaurants and supermarkets nearby. But in keeping with Flynn’s concept, it’s also near a county health clinic at Centerpoint Mall, a county social services office on Vanguard Street and is accessible by public transportation. Mercy House, the organization that will manage the shelter for the city, will also be operating a shuttle service for people staying at the shelter, said Oxnard Housing Director Emilio Ramirez. The 17,500-square-foot space will be converted into a 110-bed facility. Plans are for the shelter to open in the fall of 2021. The city’s rent bill will be about $22,000 a month with funding for the shelter coming from state grants, Ventura County and the city’s Measure O sales tax. That appears to be cheaper than the cost of operating the shelter in the past, which has been as much as $300,000 to keep it open for four months during the fall and winter. For most of the last 20 years the shelter was temporarily held from December to March, alternating each year between the National Guard Armories in Oxnard and Ventura. In January, a permanent year-round shelter was launched in Oxnard’s armory, which the city acquired after the National Guard decided to close it. But the change from temporary to permanent status put the shelter on a collision course with federal regulations: The armory is squarely in the

flight path of planes landing at Oxnard’s airport. Ramirez said it became clear about three months ago that the shelter couldn’t stay in its current location. “There was a continuing conversation with the airport, and a realization that we were not able to remain in the flight path,” Ramirez said. Flynn said there won’t be any quality of life taken from the neighborhood surrounding the shelter, discounting fears that the homeless will congregate near the building. “That’s the reason it’s not going to be a walk-up,” said Flynn, meaning those using the shelter won’t be allowed to line up outside of it as they wait to be admitted first come, first served. “That’s going to be incumbent upon [Mercy House,] they’re not going to be allowed to hang out,” said Flynn, noting that the homeless will be shuttled to the shelter. “They have to go to a pick-up point.” Ramirez said another reason there would be little impact from the shelter is that the residents of the shelter tend to be people who are taking advantage of Mercy House’s case management services. He acknowledged, however, that there remains a segment of the homeless population in Oxnard that will be “hanging out” in public spaces. “The population in the shelter is distinct from the homeless population on the street,” Ramirez said. “Admittedly there are more than 110, but we don’t have the capacity or budget to house more, so yeah, there’s going to be unsheltered homeless.” Ramirez said the city would have a street outreach team to make the homeless aware of programs and to invite them to the shelter. But Commission on Homelessness Chair Peggy Rivera said she was not convinced the city had made the most affordable choice. She believes it would be cheaper in the long run for the city to build on the property it owns at 1450 Rose Ave., where the organization King Center already operates a program for homeless women. “There’s so much potential there,” Rivera said. “It’s a cityowned property, which is better than putting money into a leased property.” ♦

In Brief PACC fate uncertain

The fate of Oxnard’s Performing Arts and Convention Center (the PACC) hangs in the balance as a Dec. 17 funding deadline looms. PACC Director Carolyn Merino Mullin said a staff recommendation for action by the city council would be on the Dec. 17 agenda. In the meantime, the center has events scheduled through Dec. 21, including several performances of The Nutcracker. The city planned to close the center in July due to budget cuts, but decided instead to give the center $400,000 — enough to stay open through the end of the year — after a public uproar. There was brief hope the center had found an operator when VenueTech Management Group, a San Francisco entertainment management company, showed interest. But after getting a lukewarm reaction at a Nov. 12

Hemp odors are not air pollution

Woman jailed for arson, child endangerment

The Santa Paula Police Department (SPPD) has arrested Maricela Magana Ruiz, 47, on charges of arson and felony child endangerment of her three-year-old son for putting “a plastic bag over his head” and tying his hands “before placing him in a bedroom by himself,” and then starting a fire in the home, according to statements by SPPD. Officers with the Ventura County Fire Department found the boy on Sunday, Dec. 1, when they responded to a 6:30 p.m. 911 call. The downstairs living room was on fire, and Magana Ruiz was tied to a bed. When asked if Magana Ruiz tied herself to the bed, SPPD Detective Christopher Rivera said the criminal investigation is ongoing and he was unable to comment on those specifics at this time. The boy is currently with Child Protective Services and an investigation regarding whether he can be placed with any family members is ongoing. He was treated for smoke inhalation at Santa Paula Hospital. Magana-Ruiz is being held on $500,000 bail.

According to Dr. Laki Tisopulos, air pollution control officer, the Ventura County Air Pollution Control District (VCAPCD) has received several dozen complaints from across the county about the odor of industrial hemp operations. He said it is in the middle of the harvest and the smells become stronger during the flowering and harvest process. “It can be quite odorous,” said Tisopulos. He acknowledged that residents who live close to the hemp fields are reporting major “impacts to their everyday lives.” He said hopefully the smell will decrease throughout December as the harvest wraps up. Tisopulos said the VCAPCD has essentially no regulatory authority regarding the odors because state laws (California Health and Safety Code, Sect. 41705 and VCPACD Rule 51) which govern the jurisdiction of the VCAPCD exempt odors from agricultural operations, which are governed and permitted locally by the Ventura County Agricultural Commissioner. He said concerns and complaints regarding the growing of industrial hemp should be directed to the Ag Commissioner’s office at 805-933-2926, ag.inspector@ventura.org. — Kimberly Rivers

“Everyone is a first responder” MOORPARK’S COVERED 6 PROVIDES TACTICAL TRAINING FOR PUBLIC SAFETY

ith tragic active shooting incidents occurring on local and national levels — including the shooting at Saugus High School in November that left two students dead — the need to protect ourselves and have the ability to help the injured is greater than ever before. “The world has changed — it’s volatile, it’s uncertain, it’s complex. And the threats have changed, so everyone’s involved. Everyone is a first responder, and everyone can train,” said Chris Dunn, CEO of Covered 6 in Moorpark, which provides courses in first-responder techniques. In the event of an active shooter, “who’s going to be there when the injured are left? Civilians,” said Omar Herrera, Covered 6 chief operating officer. “People are left injured and somebody wants to do something but they don’t know how. Our courses teach them.” Hundreds of people are taking or have completed

courses at Covered 6, including a tactical medicine course called Tactical Emergency Casualty Care, in which they learn life-saving techniques and strategies for providing the best trauma care. This class is geared towards military personnel, but civilians learn the same life-saving principles (geared towards the private EMS responder). Covered 6 also offers all levels of “awareness” training through A.D.A.P.T. — Awareness and Defense Against Physical Threats — which trains teachers and school administrators for crisis response and de-escalation when confronted with emergency scenarios. This program, which focuses on an alternative response to “personal threat” emergencies, provides students and staff with options to avoid potentially threatening situations and increase their chance of survival. Awareness toward self-reliance “We’re at the highest point we’ve ever been in awareness toward self-reliance for public safety, which includes civilians,” Dunn said. “Everyone’s a citizen, everyone’s affected by the things that are happening — the volatility, the uncertainty. Our programs are important because civilians are part of the effort to be a first responder.” Covered 6 is military vernacular that essentially means, “your back is covered,” said Dunn. The company is made up of a group of highly trained professionals with backgrounds in law enforcement,


VCREPORTER.COM military and corporate security who have gained experience in austere environments, real-life combat scenarios and major crisis management, both stateside and abroad. Through what Dunn calls a “holistic approach,” Covered 6 “balances courtesy and compliance” with specialists that provide a sophisticated, innovative and collaborative solution for clients seeking protection across the board. These solutions are provided through physical and cyber security, protecting communities and providing executive protection for high-net-worth individuals, including those who are targets of sophisticated attacks. Courses at Covered 6 that are open to the public include Tactical Emergency Casualty Care, in which lessons learned from military personnel are applied to the civilian world of tactical medicine. Skills taught in this class include hemorrhage control, care for pediatric patients, and techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety. Janice Parvin, the mayor of Moorpark, said “it’s good to have this type of training available, especially during the times we’re living in.” Defend, guard, protect Aug. 24 was officially designated as Covered 6 Day in Moorpark by Parvin during the grand opening of the Covered 6 Patriot Center, a 20,000-square-foot state-of-the-art training facility located on Patriot Drive. More than 500 people, including veterans and their families, attended the open house, where the Moorpark Mayor praised Covered 6 for specializing in security training, cyber training and executive protection. These and other skills are taught through Academy Courses at Covered 6. During the open house, Mayor Parvin gave special recognition to Dunn “for finding jobs for our veterans.” “Chris is an Army veteran and former police detective in Los Angeles,” she said. “He employs veterans and has helped other companies hire veterans — about 700 so far.” Defend, guard, protect is the motto of Covered 6, Dunn said during the open house. “The philanthropic vision of what we do with veterans has now become one of our primary missions,” Dunn noted. “We’ve been engaged in the longest war in U.S. history; we have people that have come out . . . and trying to get a job is extremely difficult because those skills don’t necessarily apply. Veterans are one of our single greatest resources we have.” To that end, the C6 Foundation, a nonprofit organization, gives veterans “compacted support” by providing vocational certifications and, ultimately, job placements. “The C6 Foundation directly supports the veterans and their families who have run out of benefits, fall on hard times or need assistance to get back on track — while maintaining their dignity,” said Dan Arnold, president of the C6 Foundation. Many military veterans face challenges when they transition back to civilian life, he noted. Some who go to college obtain a general degree and debt. Others don’t know how to apply their skills from the military. Those eligible to receive help from the C6 Foundation include any first responders or veterans, as well as civilians who demonstrate a desire to make their lives better through defending, guarding and protecting others. “Many

describe this desire as a calling, or a way of life,” Arnold said. “We are dedicated to helping in these ways because we feel this is the most effective way to get someone back in the right mindset for success.” Civilians in a threat-scape world As a civilian living in a threat-scape world, Julie Bellinder has “chosen to be a survivor at all cost.” In 2010, she was a victim of domestic violence, in which “the verbal and physical abuse occurred several times and yet I felt somehow I deserved it,” recalled Bellinder, 41, of Ventura. “I lived in fear for years after the ordeal . . . constantly looking over my shoulder, becoming a prisoner in my own home,” she said. “My self-esteem and confidence to face the world and unknowns was lost. When someone labels you as a victim, it makes you feel weak and defenseless.” She had a paradigm shift when she enrolled in the Physical Security Specialist Program though Covered 6 last year, with the intent of pursuing a career within the private sector as well as surveillance. The modules covered during this five-week academy included arresting techniques, surveillance, active shooter situations, tactical emergency casualty care, de-escalation techniques, situational awareness and firearms training. “I remember the first day . . . all of the students sitting in a classroom, complete strangers. I was nervous and excited all at once, not knowing what to expect,” Bellinder remembered. Over the course of five weeks, “we trained hard together, learned a lot of important information pertaining to the private security sector, and forged friendships along the way. There was a sense of camaraderie between all of us.” Bellinder also took the Carrying Concealed Weapon training course. “The instructors spent a fair amount of time in a classroom setting reviewing gun laws and firearm safety. After the class room instruction, we went up to the range to qualify,” she said. “The instructors that teach the course are extremely knowledgeable and spend time with the students ensuring that everyone understands the fundamentals of operating a firearm in a safe and effective manner.”

▲ First responder training through Covered 6 includes tactical medicine and trauma care.

Skill sets for life Looking back, Bellinger believes she is not the same woman she was before she trained at Covered 6. “I had gained more than just knowledge. I had changed. No longer did I look over my shoulder; no longer did I feel weak or defenseless. I walked with purpose and had a confidence about me that no one person will ever take away.” Today, “I can go out into the world with eyes wide open, being situationally aware of my surroundings and having the knowledge on how to defend myself, guard against threats and protect my family and friends.” As a civilian, “the training I learned through Covered 6 are skill sets I implement into my life on a daily basis, not only on a professional level, but on a personal one as well. I encourage everyone to seek out formal training of this caliber and learn how to protect yourself and loved ones living in today’s society.” ♦

Music for merrymaking

Idina Menzel Christmas: A Season of Love If one 2019 Christmas album is likely to become a big seller year after year, it’s probably this one. Menzel, whose work in the Frozen movies made her one of the world’s most popular vocalists, applies her considerable talents to 18 songs, most of which are time-tested favorites. They’re given big, brassy treatments (that on occasion go just a bit overboard), but Menzel brings plenty of enthusiasm to this entertaining disc. ♦

Chicago Chicago Christmas On their third Christmas album, Chicago goes primarily with songs penned by the its members. The band deserves credit for taking this risk. Some of the songs work well (“All Over The World,” “I’m Your Santa Claus” and “Bring My Baby Back,”) but a few others fall flat. Even with a few duds, an album of originals is often more interesting than one featuring standards. ♦

Rob Halford with Family & Friends Celestial Halford may be the turbo-lunged singer of Judas Priest, but his second holiday album isn’t strictly a head-banging affair. “Away in a Manger” has considerable ambience. “Morning Star” is is folky and gentle. “Protected by the Light” is an Irish-accented hymn complete with accordion. Of course, Halford & company also crank it up, particularly on “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “Joy To The World” and “Deck The Halls.” The “fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-las” of the latter standard have never sounded quite this way. ♦

Great holiday albums for 2019 by Alan Sculley

It’s

been a rather prolific year for holiday albums, across all the various genres, with some surprisingly stellar standouts. Here’s a brief look at some of this year’s selections.

Keb’ Mo’ Moonlight, Mistletoe & You Keb’ Mo’ has never been strictly a bluesman, so it’s no surprise that this isn’t a one-trick holiday album. The title cut and “Better Every Day” have a good bit of soul, while “Christmas Is Annoying” (about how perspectives on Christmas change when one grows up) has a jazzy feel and “One More Year With You” adds some pop to the equation. The variety is welcome, and one thing this warm, enjoyable album won’t give you is the blues this Christmas season. ♦

Los Lobos Llego Navidad The great band from East Los Angeles brings a good bit of Mexican influence to its first Christmas album, but other places (Columbia, Puerto Rico and Texas) also figure into the selections. With most songs being sung in Spanish, Llego Navidad (at least for those who don’t know Spanish) doesn’t feel like a holiday album, enabling it to play just as well any time of year. ♦

Josh Rouse The Holiday Sounds of Josh Rouse

Ne-Yo Another Kind of Christmas This refreshing album favors original songs and has its share of creativity. The funky “Just Ain’t Christmas” is a break-up song that gets a twist because it happens on Christmas Eve. “Open Mine Tonight” has some clever wordplay in its tale of Christmas Eve romance after the kids are asleep. On the other hand, “Christmas Vibez” goes for a tropical feel, but comes up a bit light in the song’s reggae styling. But that’s one of the few flaws on this fine holiday effort. ♦

The Imaginaries Hometown Christmas The husband-and-wife duo of Shane Henry and Maggie McClure have made minor waves as solo artists. Now paired up as the Imaginaries, they’ve made one of 2019’s best Christmas albums, split evenly between familiar holiday tunes and equally strong original songs. With a cheery and rootsy brand of pop (think Sheryl Crow, Sara Bareilles), their songwriting chops shine. ♦

For years, Rouse has been writing a Christmas song annually for his family. Eventually, he realized they would make up an interesting Christmas album. So here we have nine originals that feature Rouse’s familiar folky sound blended with dashes of pop, rock and jazz. Glad Rouse decided not to keep these songs in the family. ♦

Silent Winters Christmas Morning This holiday album from the Canadian duo of Olenka Bastian and Jonathan Chandler is described in a press release as “fireside harmonies for a sparkling Christmas morning.” That pretty much captures things. If you like spare folk music, this album might get multiple spins in front of your fireplace this season. ♦

ADVICE GODDESS 

Baby Got Backup

I’

ve been dating this really great woman for three months. She’s just decided that she needs to be single right now, despite our forming a pretty strong connection. She explained that she really, really likes me, but she’s never been single for very long and thinks it’s best for her at the moment. I can respect that. She also says we can keep sleeping together if I want. I want to do that, but I’m wondering: Could that ruin our chances of having a real relationship again in the future? — Wanna Play It Smart

by amy alkon People give you a reason for their behavior. It may not be the real reason. Like, I’d tell somebody, “So sorry...got a work thing!” and not, “I’d shave off my eyebrows to get out of your 8-year-old’s oboe recital.” There’s a good chance you’ve been demoted from boyfriend to emergency penis. Research by evolutionary psychologist Joshua Duntley suggests that we evolved to cultivate backup mates — plan B partners we can quickly pivot to in case a partner ditches us or dies in a freak accident. Many or most of us seem to have a backup mate or two — somebody we flirt with regularly or otherwise set up as our romantic fallback, though we aren’t always consciously aware of it. Maybe you’re all, “Hey, fine by me if she wants to keep me as her sexual service department while she’s shopping around.” Maybe you’re hoping she’ll find other dudes lame in comparison. Totally possible. But if what really matters to you is having a relationship with her, all that availability on your part is not a good look. The problem is “the scarcity principle.” Psychologist Robert Cialdini explains that we value what’s scarce or out of reach, fearing that we’ll lose access to it. In fact, the desirability of the very same person

or thing often increases or decreases according to shifts in its perceived accessibility. (Picture Denny’s with a velvet rope and a scary bouncer instead of “Open 24 hours! Seat yourself!”) Once your value is perceived to be low, there might not be much chance of rehabbing it. So it might pay to find other sex partners and give

The Truth Fairy

My boyfriend recently proposed to me. I’ve gotten to thinking that if I’d never worn braces, he wouldn’t have been interested in me. I had a terrible underbite. I always felt very unattractive in regard to my teeth, lip, and jaw region until I eventually had this corrected years ago through braces. I constantly have the nagging thought that my boyfriend could do better — that is, find a woman who is more naturally beautiful, more on a par with his level of attractiveness. Basically, I feel that my braces led to a form of unnatural beauty, a kind of cheating, and I don’t deserve him. — Distressed

Though some men are put off by fake breasts, it’s unlikely that anybody will find corrective dental work a vile form of deception, like you’re the Bernie Madoff of the perfect smile. this woman a chance to miss you. It ultimately serves your purpose better than turning yourself into the man version of those freeze-dried food packs sold for earthquake or apocalypse prep kits: delicious like seasoned particle board but just the thing while you’re waiting for rescue in the remains of your office building with nothing to eat but your arm.

Though some men are put off by fake breasts, it’s unlikely that anybody will find corrective dental work a vile form of deception, like you’re the Bernie Madoff of the perfect smile. Research in “dental anthropology” (who knew?!) by Peter Ungar, Rachel Sarig, and others suggests the cause of your underbite could be genetic — or it could be environmental (perhaps deficiencies in maternal nutrition during pregnancy). Sorry. I was hoping for something a little more definitive, too. Might you and your fiance have

a kid with a funky bite? Sure. But unlike in ancestral human societies, we live in a world teeming with orthodontists. Just look for the “STR8TEETH” and “SMILEDOC” plates on cars that cost as much as a small, slightly used private jet. Allay your fears by being honest: Tell your fiance that you got braces to correct a really bad underbite. A dude who’s attracted to the way you look now is unlikely to dump you upon learning about your supposedly sordid orthodontic history. Looks are vital for attraction, but they’re just part of what matters. A massive cross-cultural survey by evolutionary psychologist David Buss finds that men, like women, prioritize kindness and intelligence in a partner. In fact, these are men’s and women’s top asks. And these are things that can’t be engineered with $7K in oral railroad tracks and years spent covering your mouth when you laugh lest those tiny rubber bands shoot across the room and put out somebody’s eye.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

In composing this oracle, I have called on the unruly wisdom of Vivienne Westwood. She’s the fashion designer who incorporated the punk esthetic into mainstream styles. Here are four quotes by her that will be especially suitable for your use in the coming weeks. 1. “I disagree with everything I used to say.” 2. “The only possible effect one can have on the world is through unpopular ideas.” 3. “Intelligence is composed mostly of imagination, insight, and things that have nothing to do with reason.” 4. “I’m attracted to people who are really true to themselves and who are always trying to do something that makes their life more interesting.”

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

“I’m drowning in the things I never told you.” Famous make-up artist Alexandra Joseph wrote that message to a companion with whom she had a complicated relationship. Are you experiencing a similar sensation, Taurus? If so, I invite you to do something about it! The coming weeks will be a good time to stop drowning. One option is to blurt out to your ally all the feelings and thoughts you’ve been withholding and hiding. A second option is to divulge just some of the feelings and thoughts you’ve been withholding and hiding—and then monitor the results of your partial revelation. A third option is to analyze why you’ve been withholding and hiding. Is it because your ally hasn’t been receptive, or because you’re afraid of being honest? Here’s what I suggest: Start with the third option, then move on to the second.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

I’ve got some borderline sentimental poetry to offer you in this horoscope. It may be too mushy for a mentally crisp person like you. You may worry that I’ve fallen under the sway of sappy versions of love

by rob brezsny

rather than the snappy versions I usually favor. But there is a method in my madness: I suspect you need an emotionally suggestive nudge to fully activate your urge to merge; you require a jolt of sweetness to inspire you to go in quest of the love mojo that’s potentially available to you in abundance. So please allow your heart to be moved by the following passage from poet Rabindranath Tagore: “My soul is alight with your infinitude of stars. Your world has broken upon me like a flood. The flowers of your garden blossom in my body.”

CANCER

(June 21-July 22):

Try saying this, and notice how it feels: “For the next 17 days, I will make ingenious efforts to interpret my problems as interesting opportunities that offer me the chance to liberate myself from my suffering and transform myself into the person I aspire to become.” Now speak the following words and see what thoughts and sensations get triggered: “For the next 17 days, I will have fun imagining that my so-called flaws are signs of potential strengths and talents that I have not yet developed.”

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22):

An interviewer asked singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen if he needed to feel bothered and agitated in order to stimulate his creativity. Cohen said no. “When I get up in the morning,” he testified, “my real concern is to discover whether I’m in a state of grace.” Surprised, the interviewer asked, “What do you mean by a state of grace?” Cohen described it as a knack for balance that he called on to ride the chaos around him. He knew he couldn’t fix or banish the chaos—and it would be arrogant to try. His state of grace was more like skiing skillfully down a hill, gliding along the contours of unpredictable terrain. I’m telling you about Cohen’s definition, Leo, because I think that’s the state of grace you should

cultivate right now. I bet it will stimulate your creativity in ways that surprise and delight you.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

Poet Juan Felipe Herrera praises the value of making regular efforts to detox our cluttered minds. He says that one of the best methods for accomplishing this cleansing is to daydream. You give yourself permission to indulge in uncensored, unabashed fantasies. You feel no inhibition about envisioning scenes that you may or may not ever carry out in real life. You understand that this free-form play of images is a healing joy, a gift you give yourself. It’s a crafty strategy to make sure you’re not hiding any secrets from yourself. Now is a favorable time to practice this art, Virgo.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

In accordance with current astrological omens, here’s your meditation, as articulated by the blogger named Riverselkie: “Let your life be guided by the things that produce the purest secret happiness, with no thought to what that may look like from the outside. Feed the absurd whims of your soul and create with no audience in mind but yourself. What is poignant to you is what others will be moved by, too. Embrace what you love about yourself and the right people will come.”

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

“I swear I became a saint from waiting,” wrote Scorpio poet Odysseus Elytis in his poem “Three Times the Truth.” According to my reading of the astrological omens, you may be in a similar situation. And you’ll be wise to welcome the break in the action and abide calmly in the motionless lull. You’ll experiment with the hypothesis that temporary postponement is best not just for you, but for all concerned.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

“My greatest asset is that I am constantly changing,” says Sagittarian actress and activist Jane Fonda. This description may not always be applicable to you, but I think it should be during the coming weeks. You’re primed to thrive on a robust commitment to self-transformation. As you proceed in your holy task, keep in mind this other advice from Fonda. 1. “One part of wisdom is knowing what you don’t need anymore and letting it go.” 2. “It is never too late to master your weaknesses.” 3. “If you allow yourself, you can become stronger in the very places that you’ve been broken.” 4. “The challenge is not to be perfect. It’s to be whole.” P.S. And what does it mean to be whole? Be respectful toward all your multiple facets, and welcome them into the conversation you have about how to live.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

You can’t escape your past completely. You can’t loosen its hold on you so thoroughly that it will forever allow you to move with limitless freedom into the future. But you definitely have the power to release yourself from at least a part of your past’s grip. And the coming weeks will be an excellent time to do just that: to pay off a portion of your karmic debt and shed worn-out emotional baggage.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

Aquarian playwright August Strindberg didn’t have much interest in people who “regurgitate what they have learned from books.” He was bored by stories that have been told over and over again; was impatient with propaganda disguised as information and by sentimental platitudes masquerading as sage insights. He craved to hear about the unprecedented secrets of each person’s life: the things they know and feel that no one else knows and feels. He was a student of “the natural history of the human heart.” I

bring Strindberg’s perspective to your attention, my dear one-of-a-kind Aquarius, because now is a perfect time for you to fully embody it.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20):

“It’s no fun being in love with a shadow,” wrote Piscean poet Edna St. Vincent Millay. And yet she indulged profusely in that no-fun activity, and even capitalized on it to create a number of decent, if morose, poems. But in alignment with your astrological omens, Pisces, I’m going to encourage you to fall out of love with shadows. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to channel your passions into solid realities: to focus your ardor and adoration on earthly pleasures and practical concerns and imperfect but interesting people. Homework: Evil is boring. Rousing fear is a hackneyed shtick. More: https://bit.ly/EvilisBoring
