Common Core is rotton to the core. I-pads and phone devices are the new crack cocaine. Apple knows they will get repeat sales once the kid gets hooked on the iPad.
Common Core was designed for profit.
Dr Dan nailed it with the obvious truth," put the money into teachers and reducing class size: this always works."
The administrators are busy chasing the money and ignoring the kids. The sad part is that once the kids get these iPads, the normal social development of kids of actually interacting one-on-one and playing together gets damaged. Shy kids withdraw into technology. The weird kids escape into online games and youtube.

"Think about it: If men could have all the sex they want without having a relationship, they would take it. Just like kids would take all the candy they could get.”
Really? Wow. If someone said something derogatory like this about women would they be called sexist? Feminists would have a field day. Call me old-fashioned but monogamy is still the best game in town. Just saying......

The Mayor is correct and accurate in her assessment. Thank You.
IMO, if Caltrans refuses to cooperate (which I suspect they will) we should consider scraping the the whole thing and spend the $140 million of Measure A money on bike lanes. To make the bike lanes safe we need to stop the high-density developments that add more, more, more, and more cars to our already congested streets.

This article captures much of what Santa Barbara is about. Little views. Small areas of native grass next to the freeway. Landscaping instead of concrete.
For the last 30 years the City has allowed policies of over-development to slowly change Santa Barbara into a place that feels more like Los Angeles or some hardened dense City.
This 101 project, with the Caltrans insensitivities, damages the way the City looks, feels, and acts to the point that it feels foreign to those of us who called Santa Barbara home for the last 30-40- years. All the do-gooders with their progressive pro-housing agenda killed the golden goose. All that housing could have gone anywhere in the State or Country, but developers make bigger profits forcing it on coastal communities. Sad.

Good for Sandhya being skeptical of the Bhagavad Gita.
The poverty in India is sickening. The hindu belief system that created the caste system is at the root of their poverty.

Leaving the insurance companies in the equation has hurt America's health care system. Single payer can only work without insurance companies. Overall, I believe the author is correct that for most people, health care coverage is now worse or more expensive than before.It especially hurts the younger Americans who are subsidizing older people who tend to have more money.
Medi-Care for all would be a much better alternative. The infra-structure is already in place, and although not perfect, runs fairly well. Unfortunately Obamacare has instutionalized bloated costs for the insurance companies to profit from.

Thank You Botany. Pope not so cool after all.
Women will always be 2nd class citizens until they gain control over their own bodies. Religion continues to oppress woman and deny them their rights.
