A scary new doc about how privacy died

Whatever happened to the Fourth Amendment? You know, that bulwark of our right to privacy? Its protections against government intrusion and coercion aren't exactly dead - not yet - but they're going fast. Because we can't seem to stop giving them away.

Want a job? Don’t skip the science

College has gotten expensive. Really expensive. Last week, aspiring students heard the fantastic news that Congress failed to extend discounted rates on subsidized student loans making loans either 1.) impossible to get without having to sell your leg and someone's kidney to pay for or 2.) just a bad idea.

The ultimate gathering place

Editor's note: I started to write a column this week about the impact the Stanislaus County Fair makes in the community. But when I read through my previous columns, I decided that what I really wanted to say, I already said. I hope you don't mind a rerun this week. I truly feel the sentiment is worth repeating.

Braving the heat to make children safer

It's safe to say that the triteness of the phrase "Where there's a will, there's a way" does nothing to decrease its validity. It certainly is a timeless truth that whenever you truly believe in something, you're sure to find a way to achieve it.

Spy, whistle-blower, hero — and celebrity

"Bling Ring" is a hot new movie about celebrity in our time, all flash and bang, set in Hollywood to rework the mangled cliche that almost anybody can get 15 minutes of fame if they're light enough to float, perverse, and (if female) pretty and skinny enough. There's a need to know the right labels, ZIP codes, trends and fashions, and you have to know how to appeal to ignorant adolescents who think they know more than they do. (That's quite a long list.)

Supreme Court shows its value in gay rights decisions

Like a starting pistol, the buzzer sounded at 10 a.m. and nine robed justices entered the chamber. Chief Justice John Roberts immediately called on his colleagues to announce the court's decisions. Several hundred people listened in silence with bated breath.

The universality of love

The idea of universality - the concept that something, whatever it may be, can apply to anyone, at one time or another, regardless of who they are, what they believe and what they stand for - is awe-inspiring.

Market conditions warrant milk price adjustment

Today [June 24], I have ordered modest temporary price relief for milk producers, effective July 1 through the end of the year. This adjustment is across all classes to maximize pool returns to producers. While the testimony on the hearing record failed to provide economic data to justify the industry's positions, the uncertainty of the 2013 corn crop and questions about the stability of the market recovery indicate this adjustment is appropriate. I've taken this action despite the fact that I believe, and have stated, the Department cannot address ongoing difficulties within the dairy industry through increases in ...

It takes a village

Many have heard the saying "it takes a village to raise a child" and agree with its sentiment. But few actually take the time to nurture and support all the children in their community.

Take time to reminisce this Father's Day

The Turlock Journal is focusing on "memories of dad" for this Father's Day edition, and it has prompted quite a few paternal flashbacks for me. My father passed away from a sudden heart attack in March 2000, but he lives on in my memory.

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.
