WWII vet honored with Bronze Star 75 years after the battle at Metz by Kimberly Rivers kimberly@vcreporter.com

n Tuesday, Sept. 29, Eldon L. Knuth, 95, of Thousand Oaks will receive the Bronze Star Medal in recognition of his military service 75 years ago for his service in France during World War II. The medal will be presented by Major General Laura Yeager, the first woman to command a U.S. Army infantry division. “I’m really looking forward to it, and it’s about time,” said Knuth about the recognition for his service as a private first class with the 95th Infantry Regiment, which would come to be called The Iron Men of Metz. “When I was fighting in France I wasn’t thinking about med-

Make the pledge during Bike Week by Darrin Peschka and David Goldstein

B

ike Week is Sept. 21-25 in Ventura County, and the Ventura County Transportation Commission is asking locals to mix up their routine by biking instead of driving one day a week. The positive impact on the environment is significant, and cyclists can enjoy a break from increased isolation at home. Bike Week, which has been referred to as Bike to Work Week in the past, is an annual event that encourages residents to leave their cars at home and instead use their bicycles to run essential errands, travel to medical appointments, commute to work, or just get out of the house. Those who pledge to do so at goventura.org/bike-week will be entered to win one of 10 $100 VISA gift cards. Participants must be over the age of 18 and the pledge must be made by Sept. 30. Residents of Ventura County may have noticed lighter traffic when the state of California first shut down in response to COVID-19. According to the California Coalition for Clean Air, March 6—

— September 24, 2020

brought Californians some of the cleanest air in the United States. Though many people continue to stay home from work, school and other destinations, others have returned to their routines. According to the California Department of Transportation, VMT (vehicle miles traveled) data indicates that traffic in Ventura County has been inching its way back to pre-pandemic levels, negatively impacting air quality. If an essential destination is too far to bike, cyclists can use racks and storage compartments on local buses to bring a bicycle on board. Riders can cover a portion of their trip, perhaps the first or last mile, via bike, and use transit for the rest of the journey. Many cyclists also enjoy taking public transit one way and riding their bicycle the other way. Next time you are preparing to depart on an essential trip, visit goventura.org/getting-around/ bike and discover one of Ventura County’s bike routes. The map highlights Class 1 paths,

which are separated from cars; Class 2, which are shared-street painted bike lanes; and Class 3, which are on-street bike routes designated by signs. Cyclists in the Conejo Valley recently welcomed six miles of Class 2 freshly paved bike lanes from Lake Sherwood to Hidden Valley. If you break out your old bike for a tune-up or begin shopping for a new one in preparation for Bike Week, you will be in good company. “I’m seeing bicycle repairs about double my normal amount since COVID isolation began,” said Ron Lathrop, who has been the manager of Bicycles of Ojai for nearly 30 years. “And new bikes… have been in short supply due to manufacturing disruptions, but they are just starting to come back, so we are seeing a lot of purchases now.” The segment taking off the fastest, according to Lathrop, is electric bikes. “They’re mostly made in Taiwan, not China, so inventory is available,” he said. Bike Week 2020 will be followed by California Clean Air Day on Oct. 7. On that date, locals are invited to pledge at cleanairday.org/ individual-pledge to bike, walk, install an air quality monitor, plant a tree, or group deliveries together in an effort to create cleaner air in our community.

This year, during Bike Week, pledge to mix things up by leaving your car at home and breaking out your bike. For more information about transportation, air quality, and ridesharing during Bike Week and beyond, visit goventura.org or follow VCTC (@GoVCTC) on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter. Due to recent fires, Dr. Laki Tisopulos, Executive Officer of the Ventura County Air Pollution Control District, urges bicyclists who are sensitive to air pollution to check air quality before bicycling. “We have air quality reports at vcapcd. org, and you can see Air Quality Alerts by following @VCAPCD on social media,” he said.

VC COVID-19 UPDATE County still in “purple tier” by Kimberly Rivers kimberly@vcreporter.com

Current COVID numbers

As of Sept. 21, 2020, Ventura County reported 265 new cases, with 3,405 new tests, for a total of 12,234 confirmed cases of the coronavirus since the start of the pandemic in March. 176,359 people have been tested in Ventura County. 11,249 people have recovered or never reported any symptoms after testing positive. Since the beginning of the pandemic, 883 people have been hospitalized in Ventura County as a result of symptoms from COVID-19, with 213 of those needing treatment in an ICU. 839 people have active cases and are under quarantine. As of Sept. 21, 146 people have died in Ventura County while testing positive for the coronavirus.

Officials expect tier shifts next week

At the Sept. 22 meeting of the Ventura County Board of Supervisors, staff of the county’s Public Health Department showed how positivity rates of the virus continue to decline, positioning the county to move on the state’s tiered rating system from purple (the most restrictive) to red. Such a move would allow restaurants to open indoor dining at 25 percent capacity and school campuses to open. But the county is not there yet. “We need to meet the new metric for two weeks” before shifting to lower restrictions, said Rigoberto Vargas, director of Ventura County Public Health. He emphasized that once in a lower level tier, the county would have to maintain numbers for three consecutive weeks to remain. Only one metric is holding up the county from dropping a tier: the seven day average case rate per 100,000 people. The rate reported on Sept. 22 was 7.4 percent and it needs to be 7 percent. “Last week [the county was] just below 8.5,” so this is a significant improvement, Vargas said. Officials emphasized the work being done to lobby the state for a “potential adjustment” for Ventura County since the other metrics being tracked are being met or better than the state’s requirement. The county currently has a 3.8 percent rate for those testing positive, well below the states requirement of 8 percent. Ventura County is exceeding all other metrics: Average daily tests is 221; state goal is 150. The percentage of ICU beds available without surge capacity activated is 42 percent; the state requires 20 percent. Eighty-seven percent of ventilators are available in the county, well above the state’s threshold of 25 percent. Officials emphasized strong business compliance with protective procedures as evidenced by the low number of businesses cited by a state “strike” team that visited the county, without notifying county officials. County CEO Mike Powers said that the state team reported they visited 3,100 businesses and only issued three citations for noncompliance.

Homeless shelter requirements

Ventura County Public Health has issued new rules for all people entering homeless shelters and H2A housing facilities. All those entering these locations must be checked daily for symptoms and have their temperature taken. Those with elevated temperature or other associated symptoms must be isolated and notify the operator of the facility. Operators of these facilities must notify Public Health of any lab-confirmed coronavirus infection.

Positive cases in jails blamed

According to county officials, including Supervisor Linda Parks, the approach used by the state to calculate positivity rates in jailed populations is affecting the county’s ability to move to the next tier. For the period of Sept. 6-12, there were 16 reported cases in the Ventura County Jail. The state is including that in the county numbers even though it is unclear if all of those individuals are actually residents of Ventura County. According to Parks, the state argues that the cases in the jailed population should be counted because if released those people would be in the county. But Parks pointed out that they may not have the information on where those people truly live. The county continues to press the state to change this approach regarding cases in the jailed population.

County clarifying rules in various sectors

Last week the county issued statements that clarify various rules and guidelines for certain sectors. Art classes: “Unaccredited” art education programs “that perform after school youth and adult programs can operate under the Day Camps and cohorts guidance,” so long as the business running the sessions is registered at www.vcreopens.com. Art schools: Post-secondary art schools are still to remain closed for “indoor lectures and student gatherings.” Some indoor courses like “labs and studio arts” may take place, so long as state-issued guidance for higher education institutions is followed. These schools must also register with the county as an educational service. Golf cart sharing: If two people not from the same household are playing golf, they can share a golf cart provided a partition is used in the cart. Massage: Massage treatments that have been ordered for a patient by a doctor or chiropractor can take place indoors as an “essential” healthcare service and is not considered “under personal services.” Non-medical massage may only take place outdoors while the county remains in the purple tier, and must also be approved by the county or city. Skin care: Non-medical skin care services are only allowed outside with some modification. Masks must be worn at all times. See state guidelines. Live music in restaurants: Live music is allowed outdoors when it does “not cause people to gather” and is for “the benefit of the business patrons who are already seated.” Solo performances are allowed and duets with performers from the same household are allowed to perform outdoors at restaurants, bars or wineries. The performance stage must be at least 20 feet from viewers, and the music must not be so loud “to the point where people have to lean in to be heard” while talking. Door to door campaigning or canvassing: Census workers and people seeking signatures on ballot initiatives or related items and those campaigning for elected office as well as their campaign workers “may engage with residents door to door, but must wear a mask,” should stay six feet away from residents when possible and should disinfect equipment (pens, clipboard etc.) after each use. Other solicitors, such as for profit businesses, may leave materials such as door hangers, but cannot ring the doorbell or knock on the door “or otherwise attempt to engage with residents.” For details visit: www.venturacountyrecovers.org

In Brief

SoCal Gas line project in Cañada Larga

A spokesperson for Southern California Gas Company confirmed that the utility is conducting a “routine pipeline replacement project” to a company-owned gas line located on private property off of Cañada Larga Road nearly two miles southeast of Casitas Springs. The gas line provides service to residential customers in Casitas Springs and one commercial customer in Oxnard, but the spokesperson for SoCal Gas did not respond to a request for details about how that pipeline at that location can provide gas for a customer in Oxnard. The line travels from a location at Highway 33 in Casitas Springs east, zigging back and forth and mostly travelling along the northern side of Sulphur Mountain, ultimately travelling along Sulphur Mountain Road, where it meets Highway 150 at Sulphur Mountain Road in the Upper Ojai Valley. The project began on Aug. 3 and is expected to be completed by the end of October if there are no delays due to weather or other conditions. The pipeline is buried in some locations and visible above ground in others. Physical solution for watershed proposed

Several of the major water users in the Ventura River Watershed have released information on a “physical solution” they say will help address issues with habitat preservation in the Ventura River and ensure wildlife, including the steelhead trout, have enough water. The physical solution is essentially a settlement that includes the city of Ventura, Ventura River Water District, Meiners Oaks Water District, Rancho Matilija Mutual Water Company and the Wood-Claeyssens Foundation (owners of Taylor Ranch) along with some other private agricultural interest holders. “No one is looking at water rights,” said Susan Rungren, water resource manager with Ventura Water, explaining that the physical solution is really about the larger users looking at a “physical solution [for] habitat restoration” in the river. The agreement does not include Casitas Municipal Water District, which left the physical solution conversations earlier this year. Rungren said the adjudication action, in which the city served the property owners of over 12,000 properties in the Ojai Valley and Ventura with a notice that their water rights may be impacted by a court adjudication, is “essentially on hold.” According to the city’s website, the physical solution “is a way for local parties to create an equitable approach to address existing problems, without

having to adjudicate water rights or determine water right priorities.” National Diaper Need Awareness Week

Sept. 21-27 is the Ninth Annual National Diaper Need Awareness week aimed at highlighting a common but often overlooked community issue during tough economic times. Secure Beginnings, an Oak Viewbased nonprofit organization, is working to build awareness about the issue, especially during the pandemic. “Diaper need, second only to food need as a parental stressor, is having a cascading effect upon our youngest community members,” the nonprofit stated in a press release. “We have to ensure that this generation of babies, young children and young families come out of this time of pandemic healthy and resilient,” said Caryn Bosson, youth advocate with Secure Beginnings. Studies show that when parents are stressed it can impact the mental and emotional health of children. The organization has distributed diapers and wipes to over 200 children per month since the pandemic began; enough for around 45,000 diaper changes.

On Sept. 22, the Ventura County Board of Supervisors approved a Memorandum of Understanding with Swell Energy for the installation of energy storage battery systems at county-operated medical centers. The MOU states the total project cost is $324,646 and will be fully funded by a rebate through the California Self Generation Incentive Program. The system will be designed and installed to provide back-up power in the event of loss of electricity during weather events, planned public safety power shutoffs or any other power losses. The total number of hours the battery storage system will provide is not yet determined and will be based on the design of the final system. New state law ensures fair pay for adjunct faculty

On Sept. 9, California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill 736, authored by Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin (D-Thousand Oaks), that guarantees adjunct faculty at independent nonprofit colleges and universities will receive fair compensation. “By establishing a minimum compensation floor, this bill also represents a substantial pay increase for many faculty members and will ensure they can continue benefiting students with their professional experience,” said Irwin. — Kimberly Rivers

Full COVID genome found in stools What does this mean for prevention and treatments? by Kimberly Rivers kimberly@vcreporter.com

Graphic rendering of SARS-CoV-2 cell connecting to an ACE-2 receptor cell.

You heard it here first, COVID-20,” said Dr. Sabine Hazan on Sept. 16 during a discussion with the Ventura County Reporter at the offices of Ventura Clinical Trials and ProgenaBiome in Ventura. “We are already starting to see COVID-20-associated diarrhea and rectal bleeding.” She agreed to talk about findings in a ProgenaBiome report currently undergoing peer review. It is the first study she is aware of that finds the entire genome — along with 33 different mutations — in the stools of those with SARS-CoV-2. The paper, “Detection of SARS-CoV-2 from Patient Fecal Samples by Whole Genome Sequencing,” is authored by Dr. Andreas Papoutsis, Jordan Daniels, Skylar Steinberg, Dr. Brad Barrows and Dr. Sabine Hazan (all with ProgenaBiome) and Dr. Thomas Borody and Dr. Siba Dolai of the Center for Digestive Diseases. (1) That paper reports on the existence of hundreds of thousands of replicas of the complete genome of the virus in the stool samples of people who tested positive by nasal swab PCR testing, both symptomatic and asymptomatic. By using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) the researchers identified 33 unique variations of the virus, indicating a high propensity for mutations, potentially making treatment by something as fine-tuned as a vaccine extremely challenging. The report also shows the initial findings of the clinical trial studying whether a combination treatment protocol called HAZDPaC (which includes hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, zinc and Vitamins C and D) or high dosages of Vitamin C, D and zinc alone (the placebo in the trial) may prove effective in eradicating the virus from the gut, where it could potentially cause long-lasting problems if left to “percolate.” Eleven of 14 trial participants were positive (nasal swab PCR) for the virus. Eight of those people

Understanding COVID-19

Hazan explained the process of isolating the virus, standing at a white board and illustrating as she talked. “A tiny little sample of stool” is transferred “into a pipette,” she explained, drawing a small triangular vial. The process of preparing the samples for NGS involves purifying DNA or RNA from the stool sample and performing numerous complex steps to identify nucleotide sequences of bacteria and viruses. “About 60 percent is your DNA. Then you’ve got the bacteria.” Or, rather, bacteria, virus and fungi — numerous families of each, with possibly thousands of strains. “So we capture all this bacteria, and then maybe 0.1 percent or less is virus,” Hazan continued. “If we want to zoom in from the beginning on just the RNA viruses, we use a different purification protocol that enriches for our targets of interest. . . . From there we just focus on the [species of virus] and break it down.” This is when viruses in the gut (herpes, rotavirus, coronaviruses and others) are mapped. As there are

were not treated and the full virus genome was found in each of their stool samples. A total of 33 unique mutations of the virus were identified in those eight participants. The remaining three people who had the virus were treated for 10 days with HAZDPaC or high dosages of Vitamin C; when retested, they had no trace of the virus in their stools. Three additional trial participants served as the “control.” Two were negative (nasal swab PCR); one was not tested. None were treated and no virus was detected in stools. Until the report is printed as a peer-reviewed paper (currently in process) it cannot be relied upon for other clinical study or purposes. But Hazan is confident of the findings’ ultimate confirmation through peer review. The drug hydroxychloroquine, one component of the HAZDPaC protocol, has long been used to treat malaria, lupus and arthritis. It became a political hot topic when President Donald Trump touted it as a potential treatment for COVID-19 in the early days of the pandemic. Cries went up across the political spectrum, with many questioning his motive for promoting a drug that hasn’t been tested for this use. When Hazan and her colleagues placed ads seeking participants for the trial, the lab received crank calls from folks levying attacks for studying hydroxychloroquine. Hazan also has been contacted by network television stations. She has refused to speak with them, however, saying, “No, I’m not going to be your scapegoat for this political battle that you have. The media should not interfere with science, because it biases the doctors from writing the prescriptions, it biases the patients from wanting to enroll in the study. It stops us from seeing an answer.” “Science and medicine should never be politicized,” said an exasperated Hazan.

many strains in the species of coronavirus, “you have to find the COVID-19.” Hazan says it’s important to understand how existing testing works to understand why preventing or treating the virus, or developing a vaccine, is so challenging. “So when you look at the PCR [test], if this is the virus,” she said, drawing an elongated cylinder with an asymmetrical head and tail, ”It’s got many spikes. It’s got a 1a region, a 3a region,” other parts of the virus that have been mapped by researchers. She explained that as the virus was studied, certain “segments” of the virus were found in most infected people. These are the segments of the viral RNA the PCR test looks for and, when found, they generate a positive test result for the SARS-CoV-2 virus. These segments of the virus are usually found in infected patients — but not always. “There are some people [with the virus] who may have variations in the sequence of the conserved regions, which

may result in false negative results,” because the test doesn’t find the segments it was designed to find. Hazan also pointed out that the “conserved region” may represent a fragment of an inactivated, non-infectious virus, “a piece that is shed, making it a false positive test or a positive test in a patient that is no longer actively infected.” Another issue has plagued researchers such as Hazan. “The problem is, this virus mutates,” she said, drawing a second cylinder, but this one with a differently shaped head and tail. “These two [strains of the same virus] are completely different.” “So how does a vaccine work? A vaccine works by mimicking the targeted virus so your immune system can identify it and develop a preemptive response,” she continued. Later, when the vaccinated person is exposed to the conserved version of the coronavirus, “your body recognizes it, and the vaccine works. But what happens when the virus mutates and is no longer the conserved form recognized by the immune response produced by the vaccine? It may be less effective or not effective at preventing infection. Due to this, multiple booster vaccinations may be required

Once a person gets coronavirus, whether they have symptoms or not, Hazan said that they may need to be treated. “If you don’t get rid of it, and you let it percolate in your body, you run a risk of long-term complications of COVID.” Hazan and her team found copies of the full genome of the virus in just one tiny stool sample. That finding was the same for each person with the virus. This means the virus is setting up shop in the gut, and relies on favorable conditions in that environment to replicate. To understand what that means, you have to understand what happens in the gut. The coronavirus latches onto the body with an ACE-2 receptor, which is needed for the virus to replicate.

in movie theater for the coronavirus, with plenty of parking, a straight line to the gut access pathway.. “The small bowel, if you stretch it out, is the same size as a tennis court.” “If it sits in there, it’s multiplying millions [of times],” said Dr. Brad Barrows, medical director with ProgenaBiome. “What we found in our study, in only a little tiny poop, we found thousands of copies of the whole genome, the whole thing. Not little specks, the whole thing.” The initial protocols used in the FDA trial were formulated as a hypothesis to reach the ACE-2 receptors but also to destroy the virus. The treatment ProgenaBiome is using occupies those spots. Zinc fills up the ACE-2 receptors so there is nowhere for the virus to “park,” helping to maintain the gut barrier. Vitamins C and D boost the good gut bacteria. Hydroxychloroquine’s role is to raise the pH of the lysosome, or stomach of the cells. “If you change the pH in the lysosome with medication, you change the pH...to 9 or 9.5. It’s a super alkaline environment and the virus disappears, it cannot replicate on the next cell.

Life Interrupted at CMATO

by Emily Dodi

alifornia Museum of Art Thousand Oaks (CMATO) is a “place where ideas are shared and people connect,” but like all indoor museums, CMATO is temporarily closed to help stop the spread of Covid-19. Once again, CMATO rose to a challenge.

“The heart of everything we do at CMATO is to engage our community through the visual arts,” says senior curator Lynn Farrand. But how do you bring art — and everything that comes with it: catharsis, joy, introspection and connection — to the people when the people can’t come to you? “We felt the best way to fulfill CMATO’s mission was to create an online art exhibit that could provide some of those important connections for the community,” Farrand explains. The result is Life Interrupted, “a digital art capsule of our time through the lens of Generation Z.” The timely and powerful exhibit features works in painting, illustration, digital art, mixed media and music by local student artists. The art reveals “the context and reality of life during a time of distance learning, social separation and uncertainty.” The pieces were chosen in a competition initiated by CMATO that aimed “to capture the perspective of Generation Z artists — a generation that will likely be defined by growing up in a post-pandemic world.” Currently on exhibit are works AD P by students from Oaks Christian School and One Spark Academy.

The work is a collage made up of newspaper clippings and a sketch of a girl. Madison Mok, “Something Missing” “This piece shows how hard it is to find a safe and beautiful space to get away from so many of the scary things around us,” Rodgers explains. “I drew a girl with headphones. I imagine she is lost in her favorite song so for a moment she is transported to another place.” Each work strikes a different chord, but as the exhibit shows, the overall theme is that Generation Z is being “particularly hard hit” by the pandemic and they have something to say. This is not the first time that CMATO has responded to a crisis. They created powerful exhibits and programs in response to wildfires as well as the mass shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill. “In times of crisis, we do everything we can to keep CMATO open because we know how important it is for people to have a space for contemplative experiences, where they feel connected to something larger than themselves,” explains Farrand. She added that CMATO felt the best way to fulfill its mission was to “create an online art exhibit that could provide some of those important connections for the community.” Another way in which CMATO is providing connections right now is through their upcoming Family Art Day on Saturday, Sept. 26. The event invites viewers to create self-portraits in anticipation of their annual juried art competition Defining Beauty, set to premiere in May. Life Interrupted will be available for viewing online through Dec. 31. For more information on this and other exhibits, or on the upcoming Family Art Day on Saturday, Sept. 26, visit cmato.org.

Gara was slated to spend the summer at the Hollywood Bowl with the LA Philharmonic, Kim at various festivals. With COVID-19 clearing their schedules, the duo found some creative ways to keep the music playing. They offered courtyard concerts for socially distanced audiences and did a Delirium Musicum performance of “Ciao Bella” from The Money Heist, which was recorded on iPhones on three continents. This fall, they hatched a new plan: Travel from place to place to play their violins in vineyards and perform COVID-compliant fugues on farms, camping onsite in their vintage Volkswagen van. They would take photos and videos and share their journey on social media. They called this endeavor the MusiKaravan, a side project for Delirium Musicum, of which Gara is artistic director and Kim is a founding member. Delirium Musicum seeks to build a special bond with its audience, to bring joy and to inspire people through music. With MusiKaravan, they could continue to achieve this goal. Once they painted their vintage van cherry red and got it camera ready and road worthy, Gara and Kim had their first gig in Oceanside.

up in their perfectly restored VW Vanagon, it caught Bruce’s attention instantly.” The experience brought co-owner Bruce Freeman back to the time when he’d restored his own VW van. “Many cultures have harvest songs, songs they can sing together in the vineyards to make the centuries-old ritual of picking grapes a more enjoyable shared task,” reflected Freeman. “Having MusiKaravan play their beautiful violins in the vineyard for our 2020 harvest transcended time and place to help lighten the load of every bucket of grapes we picked,” agreed Compton. “They made our malbec harvest a memorable experience and the wine we are crafting from those grapes promises perfection!” Another amie in the vineyard was Maria Christopher, a self-described “super-volunteer” who serves on the Heritage Valley Tourism Bureau Board of Directors and as marketing and media liaison for the Rancho Camulos Museum. “When the violin duo joined us in the vineyard, it was so spiritually uplifting,” said Christopher. Once Christopher learned more about MusiKaravan, she invited them to the Rancho Camulos National Historical Landmark. While the Rancho Camulos Museum is currently open by reservation only for COVID-compliant outdoor tours, Christopher arranged for graduate students from the American Film Institute Conservatory to join MusiKaravan for a shoot for a student film project. “Another tranquil experience evolved as the magic of the violin strings wafted through the air as the sun set in the Santa Clara River Valley at Rancho Camulos,” described Christoper. Ojai Olive Oil also hosted the duo for several evenings, providing a scenic place to stay while they completed drone footage at Clos des Amis, shot the project at Camulos, and performed in their olive orchard. “What struck us most was the friendliness and sense of community of everyone,” said Gara. “Everyone knew someone who knew someone, and we could just follow the trail of word of mouth and meet amazing people, who

opened the doors of their home.” By “home,” Gara means not where people live and sleep, but the places that are dear. “The beautiful nature of Ventura County made great harmony with our music,” said Kim. “The birds, the leaves rustling in the wind and dogs made a natural acoustic background for the violins.”

e’re staying close to home these days, but we’re all connected from the mountains to the ocean. This year, California Coastal Cleanup Day will become Coastal Cleanup Month. Every Saturday in September, grab your family and housemates to clean up your street, park, local shoreline, or anywhere else that makes up your happy place. Remember, beach cleanups start at our own front doors. Trash can travel through storm drains, creeks, and rivers to become beach and ocean pollution.

Download and use the Clean Swell data collection app to record and report your cleanup.

ADVICE GODDESS

Meet Joe Backup

The guy I’m seeing is super attentive and affectionate when we’re together, but then he always falls off the grid. He’ll wait weeks before texting me to make plans again, and sometimes I have to initiate. What’s his deal, and how do I proceed? It’s a new relationship, so I’d feel too needy to tell him I want more attention. — Yearning We have a term for a pleasant, attentive man who drops by from time to time and then isn’t seen for weeks, and no, it is not “boyfriend” but “UPS man.” Some will say you should just ask for what you want: Hit the guy up

by amy alkon

for increased attention and presence like you’d hit up the Burgers R Us server for another thingie of mustard. However, we modern humans have an antique psychological operating system: psychology adapted for solving recurring mating problems for ancestral humans. So, responding to behavior without considering the underlying evolved motivation could get you in trouble, maybe even nuking your chances with a guy. Evolutionary psychologists David Buss and David Schmitt find that humans opt for different “sexual strategies”: “short-term” (casual) or “long-term” (committed). Which strategy is activated depends on “context,” including factors like a person’s mate value (relative to their competition) and the stage of life they’re in. Many men eventually want to settle down with a long-term partner. However, because for men, having sex does not lead to ye olde bun in the oven (and the need for a committed partner to help feed and shelter the child that results), they evolved to prioritize sexual variety and commitment-free sex. (All the better to spread more of their genes into future

generations!) So, a “short-term sexual strategy” is generally optimal for men in a way it just isn’t for women. Women, just like men, engage in casual sex. However, women’s emotions evolved to push them to seek commitment (and freak out and long for it when they perceive it isn’t there — sometimes even when a woman knows she wants nothing more than a one-nighter from a guy). So, a woman might be relieved some himbo she dragged home is sneaking down the tree outside her bedroom window after sex but then wake up in the morning all, “How dare you?!” that he isn’t back under it, holding up a speaker attached to his iPhone, and trying to win her heart Cusack in “Say Anything”-style. In men, a long-term sexual strategy — being commitment-driven rather than sexual smorgasbord-driven — can be triggered. Recall that sexual strategies are “context-dependent.” Wanting a family is one such context. But men will also commit when that’s what it takes to land a woman with high “mate value,” who can “afford” to hold out: commitment or goodbye. Your immediate focus, however, should be on what you potentially

have in common with a coke-obsessed lab rat. Psychologists find that “intermittent reinforcement” — occasional, unpredictable “rewards,” like a guy who pops up unexpectedly from time to time — is the stuff obsessions are made of. (Poor little lab rats that push a bar and only sporadically get a hit of cocaine will often push the thing till they’re lying paws up in the corner of their cage.) Contrast intermittent reinforcement with “regular reinforcement,” like a guy who’s always there for you. When rewards come reliably and predictably rather than randomly and unpredictably, the suspense is gone. The air goes out of the crazy, and you can relax and maybe even take Mr. Reliable for granted. Becoming obsessed with a guy — even if you do your best to hide it — tends to send a message, and it isn’t, “I’m seriously high in mate value!” It also shifts your focus from learning who he is and what you might have together to the chase. All that matters is whether he’s called, when he might call, and how you might find a gig-economy sorcerer to cast a spell to make him call. To avoid taking off on the crazy

train, open your life up to other men. This doesn’t have to mean swiping a new guy into your bed every night. You could be exploring your prospects in Zoom conversations, taking advantage of how the pandemic has slowed the pace of dating. Adding men on your end changes your emotional context from needy and desperate to “hope you come around, but if you don’t, plenty more where you came from.” He may sense he has competition and change his strategy: start calling and coming around on the regular. Of course, maybe with the attention and commitment famine no longer a factor, you’ll end up with another guy — one who makes the relationship you two have feel like a dream as opposed to the last desert mirage you see before you collapse in the sand and are eaten by buzzards. ©2020, Amy Alkon, all rights reserved.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

“It takes a lot of courage to be the same person on the outside that you are on the inside.” Author Barbara De Angelis made that observation. I offer it up to you as a fun challenge. During the coming weeks, you may be strongly tempted to be different on the outside than you are on the inside. On the other hand, you’ll have the necessary insight and valor to remain unified. In fact, you may ultimately create more congruence between your inside and outside than you have in a long time.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

“People who deny the existence of dragons are often eaten by dragons. From within.” Fantasy author Ursula K. Le Guin made that observation, and now I’m conveying it to you just in time for the season when you’ll need it most. Please note that I am not predicting you’ll be devoured by dragons from within. In offering you this oracle, my hope is that you will: 1. acknowledge the existence of metaphorical dragons; 2. locate where they hang out in your inner realms; 3. study them and get to know them better; 4. devise a strategy for dealing with them safely.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

“Don’t let them tame you,” advised flamboyant Gemini dancer Isadora Duncan. Who did she mean by “them”? The mainstream critics, who might have wished she cultivated a less maverick style? Her managers and handlers, who may have wanted her to tone herself down so she could earn maximum amounts of money? Her friends, who cringed when she did things like dancing on a table wearing an evening dress at a party? In accordance with astrological omens, Gemini, I invite you to take a survey of what influences

by rob brezsny

might wish you were more docile, mild, or manageable. And then meditate on how you could consistently express the healthiest kind of wildness.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22):

In the Yoruba religion of Ifà, the English word “heart” has two different meanings and words. So says Yoruba priest Awó Falokun Fatunmbi. The first heart is the organ that pumps blood through our bodies. It’s called okàn. Within the okàn is the second heart: a power center that regulates the flow of emotions. It’s called ègbè. I believe your ègbè will be exceptionally strong and clear and generous in the coming weeks, Cancerian. Your capacity to feel deeply and truly will be a gift to all those with whom you share it. It will also have the potential to enhance your appreciation for your own mysterious life. Wield your ègbè with glee and panache!

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22):

Ancient Greek philosopher Plato observed, “Do not train children to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.” The same principle applies to all of us adults who are committed to the goal of life-long learning. And according to my astrological analysis, it will be especially useful for you Leos to keep in mind during the coming weeks. It’s time to energize your education! And here’s the best way to gather the new teachings that are important for you to know: Follow what amuses your mind.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

Christian author Frederick Buechner writes, “We are commanded to love our

neighbors as ourselves, and I believe that to love ourselves means to extend to those various selves that we have been along the way the same degree of compassion and concern that we would extend to anyone else.” Let’s make his thought your keynote for the next two weeks. Now is an excellent time to take a journey through your past to visit all the other people you have been. As you do attend to this poignant work, be generous with each of your old selves. Forgive them for their errors and praise their beauty. Tell them how much you love them. Thank them for how they have made possible the life you’re living now.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

Seventy-nine-year-old Libran poet Robert Pinsky has had a triumphant life. He has published 19 books, including his own poems and essays, as well as translations of Italian and Polish poetry. For four years he served as the United States Poet Laureate. To what factors does he attribute his success? Here’s one: “Whatever makes a child want to glue macaroni on a paper has always been strong in me,” he testifies. He’s referring to the primitive arts-andcrafts projects he enjoyed while growing up. In accordance with astrological omens, I encourage you, too, to get in touch and commune with the primal roots of the things you love to do. Reconnect with the original expressions of your passion for life.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

“A single ego is an absurdly narrow vantage point from which to view the world,” wrote occultist Aleister Crowley. Author Gore Vidal agreed, saying, “Since no one can ever know for certain whether or not his own view of life is the correct one, it is absolutely impossible for him to know if someone else’s is the wrong one.” All of

us can perpetually benefit from this counsel. And it will be especially healthy for you to heed during the next four weeks. Humility will be a superpower. Blessings will flow your way if you don’t need to be right all the time. As you refrain from regarding your own opinions as God’s holy decrees, you will generate good fortune for yourself.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

“It’s a rare gift, to know where you need to be, before you’ve been to all the places you don’t need to be.” Author Ursula K. Le Guin wrote that. I’m passing it on to you because I suspect you now possess the power to claim this rare gift. In the coming days, you don’t have to engage in endless evaluations of the numerous possibilities. You don’t have to risk falling victim to overthinking. Your clear, strong gut hunches will tell you exactly where you need to be and how to get there.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

Novelist Henry Miller was in many ways a quintessential Capricorn. He described himself as being “in love with love, always in search of the absolute, always seeking the unattainable.” Feelings like those are why your astrological symbol is the mountain goat that’s always climbing higher, questing toward the next pinnacle. At your best, you’re determined to keep striving for the brightest, the strongest, the truest. Sometimes you overdo this admirable imperative, but mostly it’s a beautiful quality. You are hereby authorized to express it with maximum wisdom and eagerness in the coming weeks.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

“Go catch a falling star,” wrote poet John Donne (1572–1631) in his poem “Song.”

“Tell me who cleft the Devil’s foot,” he went on to say. “Teach me to hear the mermaids singing.” He wasn’t being literal, but rather was indulging in poetic fancy to stretch his readers’ imaginations. I’m offering you the spirit of Donne’s poem, Aquarius, because you’re ripe to transcend your limited notions about what’s plausible and implausible. If you allow yourself to get extravagant and unruly in your fantasies, you may crack through shrunken expectations and break into a spacious realm of novel possibilities.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20):

I don’t suggest you indulge daringly in sensual pleasures, cathartic exchanges of energy, and intoxicating pursuits of relief and release. The pandemic mandates us to be cautious about engaging in unmitigated bliss — even though the astrological omens suggest that if now were a normal time, such activities would be well worth focusing on. How can you resolve this dilemma? Possibilities: 1. Experiment zestfully with your live-in steady or spouse. 2. Get a COVID-19 test with a potential playmate, and if you both test negative, celebrate boisterously. 2. Round up a dazzler with whom you can generate rapture via Zoom. 3. Fantasize about delightfully gracious debauchery. 4. Go solo. Homework: In your fantasy, create an alternate version of yourself with a different name and a different life.
