New Signaling Concept Could Refocus Search for Signs of Intelligent Extraterrestrial Life For 50 years, humans have scanned the skies with radio telescopes for distant electronic signals indicating the existence of intelligent alien life. The search—centered at the SETI Institute in Mountain View, Calif.—has tapped into our collective fascination with the concept that we may not be alone [...]

Just a Thought- Then, My Cell Phone Went Mad

Just a Thought- Then, My Cell Phone Went Mad

Being “New Media” often means learning a new medium every week. The amount of technology I use on a daily basis impresses me, often while I’m using it. That “eureka!” moment when I understand how to download the photos or where to cut the music in gives me absolute delight. The tools of the trade- my toys, as I like to think of them – all have batteries and cameras, keyboards and [...]

Dear Editor- Consider the PTA

Dear Editor- Consider the PTA

PTA is much like a chain. The links are interconnected. At the basic level is the Unit. This can be at any school site. This is where the majority of PTA members come from and it is really the grass roots of PTA. A small geographical area, like a school district, is typically a Council of PTA units. They are joined for the purposes of providing support to the Units and implementing PTA [...]

RED-LIGHT CAMERAS -- A MODEST PROPOSAL (with apologies to the master, Jonathan Swift) We read with interest that a local political group has joined forces with the zany wing of the Libertarian Party to oppose red-light cameras. The language of the joint resolution is interesting, so we reproduce it here. We follow with a few notes to that text, and then propose some further action that might [...]

Fresh From the Farm by Katie Malich

Fresh From the Farm by Katie Malich

There's the most amazing array of peppers at the Underwood Farms stand at the Tuesday Culver City Farmers Market. You'll find a rainbow of colors and a generous assortment of shapes and sizes: light lemon yellow bells nestled with aubergine bells; elongated spring green peppers which curve and taper at the end; bright red sweet peppers; and wonderfully tender green peppers (who could ever eat a [...]

Bloom Where You are Planted By Gabby Friedenthal

Bloom Where You are Planted By Gabby Friedenthal

She is riding what that looks like an extra large, souped-up golf cart. Not fancy, just big. She swerves up on the tree laden path that Matt, my 7 year old, and I are walking on. We are on our way back from Laperts’ Ice Cream Parlor, licking our triple chocolate brownie ice-cream cones with fudge topping. Her dog, a Westie, is calmly sitting by her side, obviously used to this wild and [...]
