Conserving water is a group effort

The worst drought in most of our lifetimes has focused attention on how all Californians use, conserve and recycle water. Three years of historically dry winters - and no assurance that the next one will be any better - require each of us to examine how we can preserve this precious resource.

Bridging the valley of death

As a child, I learned about the "valley of the shadow of death" from the 23 Psalm. A similar image is conjured up by economists who talk about the "valley of death." They mean that potentially deadly stage in the life of a business when production needs to be massively scaled up but investors aren't willing to make that leap based only on pilot-scale results or because the economics of full-scale production are still iffy. One segment of the young biofuels industry is approaching that valley.

Duty to inform, not inflame

In the past 10 years there's been a shift in news media. Many news organizations went from striving to be the watchdogs of the community to doing everything possible to increase the number of "Likes" they get on a Facebook post, ethics be damned. What's wrong with being liked, you may ask? Aren't media companies in the business of increasing their audience?

The total costs of crude oil

Even if I walked to work each day, I would still be indebted for my daily bread to cars and trucks. The many goods we buy in stores arrive at their destinations courtesy of the internal combustion engine. Motors and engines are woven into the warp and weft of all our economic activity from farming to manufacturing. Although small amounts of biofuels are mixed with the gasoline we purchase, most of the fuel we use comes from crude oil.

Still a long way to go for equal pay

With the month of March marking National Women's History Month, it is important that we not only observe the significant strides made by women throughout the decades, but also acknowledge the barriers continually facing women today.

What the 'six-state' plan shows about politics

Have you ever heard the expression "cheat to win"? Certainly we all have been presented with situations throughout our lives where cheating might have been the easier route, while also ensuring us a guaranteed win. But if you're someone who enjoys that feeling of accomplishment you get when it was your own blood, sweat and tears which ultimately resulted in a "win," then you're also most likely an individual who wouldn't resort to changing the rules of the game after several failed attempts to get to home plate. If you did that, you'd be just as ...

Giving thanks

Next week is Thanksgiving, my second favorite holiday after Christmas. It is a time when we reflect on the many blessings we enjoy.

America's women veterans deserve better

More than a quarter-million American women served honorably in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. These brave women sacrificed much to keep us safe. Now that they are home, our country has a solemn obligation to help them transition back to civilian life.
