Toxic Tours by Communities for a Better Environment

By pleasurepalate, published on May 1, 2007

Taking the Toxic Tour is definitely not a touristy thing to do, but it's a certainly a tour that is quite eye-opening. Led by the Communities for a Better Environment organization, the Toxic Tour is designed to show the effects of pollution on marginalized communities in the county. The tour starts inside the CBE office where we get information showing the relation of people of color to Toxic Release Facilities in Los Angeles County and let me tell you, I was shocked to find out the percentage of homes, schools, places of business next to facilities they had no business being next to, specifically... (more)

By Rev. F, published on Apr 24, 2007

Me: Now, Mr. TV Executive, we are all aware of the "reality TV" phenom. TV Exec: Yup. Me: And we are all aware of the long-running success of the TV show "ER," which displays the soap opera drama inherent to life in an emergency room environment. TV Exec: Yup. Me: Now how about we spin the two together and have a reality TV show about life in the ER? TV Exec: Uh, TLC already has a show like that. So does Discovery Channel.

By Ed Attanasio, published on Apr 18, 2007

...($26.95), and a Braised Lamb Shank ($19.95). The service is very professional at the Cliff House Bistro, but if you haven’t noticed yet, the place is pricey. But, hey – you’re paying for the view and the atmosphere, right? If I was eating this stuff facing a wall, I’d be upset, but dining in an environment like the one at the Cliff House means I’m very forgiving. The Cliff House Bistro is at 1090 Point Lobos in San Francisco. Believe it or not, there’s usually plenty of free parking along the wall there. Their phone number is: (415) 386-3330. (more)

...was her Trust Your Vibes series: This is a great book on fine tuning your inner gut sense in life.

The Slanted Door: A New Angle on Vietnamese Cuisine

By Ed Attanasio, published on Apr 9, 2007

...local produce and ecologically farmed meat, game and poultry that’s raised at farms throughout the Bay Area. The Phan family opened the original Slanted Door in 1995 on Valencia Street. They have taken their vision a step further with the Ferry Building location, in a stunning environment designed by the renowned Olle Lundberg. The place overlooks the SF Bay, but the view actually ends up playing second fiddle to the amazing interiors of The Slanted Door. The food is the star of this gig, but the Riesling-driven wine list, the full bar with its unique selection of specialty ... (more)

Celebrate Life, Read the Obituaries

By Matt Weston, published on Apr 2, 2007

...newspapers like the LA Times+ and, more than paid obituaries, use tools like the charming obsession or telling quirk to peer inside the lives of the unknowable dead. On March 18th, we learned from the LA Times’ Elaine Woo that “Ida Honorof, 93; radio host crusaded for the environment” died on March 5th in Eureka, CA. For 20 years Honorof hosted “Report to the Consumer,” a hard-hitting radio program on KPFK-FM (90.7) in Los Angeles. Activism pervaded her life off-the-air as well, and for three months in the mid-70’s Honorof protested the... (more)

Ode to the Road: South by SouthWest

By V, published on Mar 26, 2007

...for long periods of time and get wasted. There is an official schedule, including workshops, forums, panels and band performances, but the most sought after tickets are for the ‘off-schedule’ parties - independent showcases in themselves - but in a less formal, more ambient environment (lubricated of course by alcohol sponsorship). Attendees seek out the best ‘off-site’ parties to attend, in the hope that they are discovering ‘new talent’ before anyone else. Bands playing South by South West often book tours around the event in order to take... (more)

Freelance Writing: An Interview With Mayrav Saar

By Ariel, published on Mar 16, 2007

... (aside for some recent freelance pieces). But the pros and cons of full-time work versus freelance apply no matter where you are: On the plus side, I get to spend oodles of time with my baby boy. I don't have to commute and my hours are much more flexible. On the downside: I miss the newsroom environment -- bouncing ideas off my colleagues. Also, I find I work just as hard as I always have -- for far less pay! What is your typical day like? I usually hang out with my son in the morning, write and report during his late morning nap. Do a little more writing while he snacks in the... (more)

...to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art,” BP America President Bob Malone said publicly for the first time to plaudits from an audience of city officials, LACMA-affiliates and members of the press.

Women in Hardy's Novels: Far From What Might be Expected!

By A. A. Abrahami, published on Mar 3, 2007

... human waste, a rebel against the unfair treatment of the unfairly mistreated, his radical fight for the underdog—the heroine—places the sexually domineering villain under warranted severe ethical scrutiny. He exposes corruption. He criticizes the culprit, as well as the ignorant environment which permits his survival. His palpable wrath against rape, double standards, and manipulation is harmoniously rationalized by compassion and empathy. You genuinely feel his words as they are read off the page. EX: “Under the trees several pheasants lay about, their rich plumage... (more)
