Just a Thought – Resolution Free

Just a Thought – Resolution Free

The tradition of New Year's resolutions feels as if it's bound together with the American ideal of self-improvement. A new calendar can be the beginning of some great new stuff, but it seems as if our culture puts it into a frame of punishment. How to make things better?  First, get angry with yourself about everything you like but somehow feel that you shouldn't; smoking, drinking, [...]

An Uber New Year and Beyond – TS Owen

An Uber New Year and Beyond – TS Owen

Woke up at 4:35 this morning, already late. Dressed in the dark, eased the front door shut at 4:43 and went online. For the next 20 minutes, I paced in the cold morning gloom, waiting for a ping that would tell me I hadn’t slept through the morning surge to LAX. Alas, I had. Picked up the silent phone, blew on my cold fingers and went back inside to brew coffee. Post five o’clock, six [...]

The Meadows Goes Green All the Way

The Meadows Goes Green All the Way

Culver City Public Works’ Environmental Programs and Operations Division (EPO) worked closely with the Meadows E&S Ring Management to set up their new and improved recycling program. The Meadows is the largest apartment community in Culver City, with close to 2000 residents. To mark America Recycles Day and lower its carbon footprint, the Meadows [...]

Penguin Club New Year’s Day Swim (and a Shot at a Crown)

Penguin Club New Year’s Day Swim (and a Shot at a Crown)

Most people ring in the New Year with champagne and a late night. But a group of dedicated “Penguins” choose to commemorate it with a cold dip in the ocean. Cecelia Kilger, a Los Angeles transplant, began the tradition in 1952. As a child, she swam in the frigid waters of Lake Michigan. After getting caught in the surf off Playa del Rey, she got a tip to try the Venice Beach backwater [...]

Just a Thought – Sony’s Silver Lining

Just a Thought – Sony’s Silver Lining

I've started to write about Sony many times in the last few weeks, and I've been unable to get to the end of the page before some other breaking news changed the story yet again. It would be funny if it were not so serious. In all honesty, had this hack attack been inflicted on Paramount or Universal, it would scarcely have attracted my attention. We are not a one company town, and yet we are [...]

Don’t Trash Those Old Electronics

Don’t Trash Those Old Electronics

The holidays are upon us and with the gift giving season in full swing, many households will receive new electronic gifts. Out with the old, in with the new… but what does OUT really mean? Old computers, cell phones, batteries, nail polish and many more surprising items cannot simply be thrown out with the garbage. These items are considered Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). To help [...]

Holiday Party Buzz? Don’t Drive

Holiday Party Buzz? Don’t Drive

Every 52 minutes in America, someone is killed in a drunk driving crash. And, for every preventable drunk driving death — 10,076 in 2013 alone — exponentially more lives are forever changed by the loss of a parent, child, friend, or loved one to these preventable tragedies. But on December 30th, just before America rings in the New Year, a single tweet could help save lives. That’s [...]
