Cautiously optimistic about signs of economic recovery

As we recover from the recession we have to be careful to not celebrate too early. Who can forget the 2005 College Football National Championship game between USC and Texas when Reggie Bush was running down the field for a certain touchdown, started dancing around and ended up fumbling the ball before he made it to the end zone? USC had an exceptional team that year. Had Bush scored that touchdown, USC probably would have won the national championship.

Passive smoke affects the long-term health of kids

Years ago I was a light smoker. Back in the day I thought nicotine did good things for my ability to think and learn. I was a serious student at the time, studying intensively seven days a week, so a powerful complement to black coffee was welcome in my life.

Another reason to read your local newspaper

Being a newspaper editor, I am always interested in new reports on how the media industry and journalism in general is faring in today's economy. I am used to reading headlines on the 'downfall' of newspapers and thinking the reports of our death "have been greatly exaggerated," in the words of Mark Twain. But I was a little taken aback by a recently released survey from Indiana University that found journalists are generally angry, white, old men.

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.
