Most classy resorts use "birds of prey" as a deterrent. I have seen at them used at the Bacara Resort and the Hyatt Resort on Mission Bay, where bird handlers would walk around with eagles, hawks, falcons etc. and the pigeons and seagulls would keep their distance from the resort and not bother the guests that had food.

Natural remedy works best.

No Fourth Amendment in the re-education camps.

shameful

I have garages illegally rented/converted as living space, single family structure illegally subdivided into a triplex etc. in my area and the City does nothing, I would hope the policy would be fairly enforced across the board but it is not.

Meanwhile on the overpopulation front:

A study by China’s Ministry of Water Resources found that approximately 55% of China’s 50,000 rivers that existed in the 1990s have disappeared.

China is over-exploiting its groundwater by 22 billion cubic meters per year.

China is branching out all over the world to own land and resources, especially to grow water intensive agriculture products that will then be sent to China.

Here is a list of Dams in California, with the dates they were built.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...

Of course forked-tongue City People don't have anything to do with aquifers not recharging?

Those mean nasty Farmers are the clause of it all, LOL.

The Santa Ynez River, damed to hell and then pumped out of the valley to feed the city sissies in Santa Barbara, sorry blood on your hands also.

Alisal Ranch would not have had to build a lake, to guarantee water, if the aquifer really recharged, now would they. Alisal has deer, mountain lion, black bear etc. that depend on that small lake.

So Santa Barbarians enjoy your stolen water, some steelhead gave its life for it.

Oh, and your cities are falling apart, as evidenced by the 20 million gallons of water that just flooded UCLA.

I find it fascinating that we have all these earthquake codes for buildings, when your 100 year old water pipes will break like pretzels if a big one hits, buildings left standing and millions with no water, how is that going to work?

I prefer "Fish Bowls"

As of last Friday, the last day to amend a bill, this is the text.

http://legiscan.com/CA/text/SB505/2013

The bill "encourages" LE when conducting a welfare check, to check the AFS system and a bunch of garbage policy crap.

The bill is a joke.

Another feel good law on the books that has the potential to do nothing.

AFS can be checked in seconds and should be a "Mandatory" check, when doing a welfare check, and all the policy B.S. is not needed.

Just make it mandatory if you really mean to make a difference.

14noscams,

Sustainable Student body is an important issue for the area.

I have personally used, hardhat, rat hat, swindell mixed gas, kirby-morgan and some others, so I understand your concern but the maximum student body issue is real for the area. Student body should be capped as to fit within our local environment.

What courses of study offered or the student body makeup is not my concern, I will leave that to others but student body growth without looking at sustainability is ignorant, same goes for UCSB.

Show me the Water, is not the silt bed known as Gibraltar Reservoir supposed to supply water to the Mesa Area? The Mesa is already over crowded, how about a sustainable level of Students instead of build, build, build. Follow the Money, its a scam.

The Cuyama/Santa Maria River, Ventura River, Santa Clara River have all become storm drains for when it does rain. The Twitchell Reservoir

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twitche...

captures the waters which once Recharged the aquifer in Cuyama.

In the early 1960's, cue Davy to have a hissy fit, before over-population, wilderness areas with fufu names, the water still flowed, the aquifers recharged. "Water Mining" by Yankees to feed their "Earthly Boxes" has decimated steelhead and land animals. Dam Nation is groundwater mining also.

The aquifer under the Coachella Valley which built up over millions of years from the runoff of the San Jacinto Mountains has been dropping at an alarming rate from gambling, housing and golf courses.

I remember Scotties near Ozena, the Buckhorn being the only real civilization after the Deer Lodge, it was the real badlands. Nothing like backpacking in 15 degrees and trying to stay warm.

Yes AG is over using but the Dams stop the aquifer recharge. In an ideal world extraction should match the recharge rate but the Dams prevent recharge from happening. Ground Water Tables all over Southern California have dropped and current extraction rates are not sustainable, that is why we have "Salt Water Intrusion" on the Coast.
