What an impressive piece. Effective writing, apparently good science, and strong motivation. Congratulations Lea, best wishes on your next (of many) steps.
Thanks too to UCSB for providing a Research Mentorship Program. We're well-served by the involvement of the campus in our lives.
One supposes that you'll make a choice of place to continue your studies when you've graduated from high school. I hope we'll see a follow up notice of the choices made by the four pictured in this piece.

I have a bias. My daughters both participated at Starr King and Sarah Foot was the Director. Those girls valued their experience, learned a lot about stuff that pre-K kids should learn, and we -- the parents -- learned a lot about pre-K kids and child development. Our weekly class sessions as parents were full of important concepts and our participation in the daily activity at the Workshop were among the most valuable in our child-rearing experience.
The only expense of the SBCC that I remember was the cost of the director and the associate director. Their work was not only for the half-day sessions but for organizing the curriculum and the programs. They had to be certificated.
Whether it is appropriate with the newer guidelines, I don't know; but it surely was important and educational for our whole family.

What I cannot understand is how this case ended up in the District Court of Appeals? That's a little far afield and it would seem that it should have been tried in the 9th District.

Read carefully. It says "one of the only live". The "one of" part makes a lot of difference.

Or, you could use an on-line check service which sends the check (or electronic transfer) on the date you indicate.
Thus, on the day you receive the bill 1) enter instructions for paying the bill, and 2) enter the date you want to pay it. Once you've done that, the bill is -- for all intents and purposes -- out of your way. Conscience clear. (of course you'd better have $$ in the account on the day you indicate that you want to pay.)

John Zant's skills bring real life to almost anything but the Title IX anniversary is one he populates a kind of zeal and interest that can't be beat. Thank you, John.

Nick, you missed one point from an environmental point of view. If the providers are to manage electricity generation -- when much more electricity comes from intermittent sources like solar and wind -- they must know in a timely manner how much is being used, and where.
Managing the grid has become much more difficult than when one just turned on a couple of nuclear or coal power plants and let them run. Solar and wind, for all their benefits are also very unpredictable necessitating other measures of how much is needed.

Although an explanation of LIBOR is nice, the critical variable in the story is what the margin is. i.e. how much is added to the LIBOR index (and which of the several indexes is it).
If the LIBOR index that's being used is the 1 year index, and the margin is 4, that means the rate being paid is 1.007 + 4.0 for a total of 5.007 today. That's not bad, but in order to fully understand the story, a couple of details are important.
