I think this is a fine idea that is being approached rationally and safely. Better watch out for theRead More 'do-gooders' like Blumberg of NY. "Outlawed are food donations to homeless shelters because the city can’t assess their salt, fat and fiber content, reports CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer." * Back in my hippie days I supplied the American Indians that were occupying Alcatraz island with out of date sandwiches from where I worked and no one died. *http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2012/03/19/bloomberg-strikes-again-nyc-bans-food-donations-to-the-homeless/

Hee,hee! I once offered a woman begging for food a perfectly good sandwich that I had taken as anRead More extra from a company lunch. She refused because she might get sick. I gave her granola bars instead. Everyone is different.

People shouldn't be so afraid to get tested, it's simply a swab of the inside of your cheek with a qRead More tip. If you were called to save another's life, how could you pass on giving such a gift? Giving stem cells is much like giving blood. I would endure great pain, if it meant saving a life. Even when a match is found, people don't often understand how awful it is to receive a stem cell transplant. What it does to you, how scary it is and how you aren't guaranteed a cure. Please, please get past your fear and put yourself on the registry. What if this happened to you?

It's not too late... Get your tickets today or make a simple donation! Providing some stability toRead More those in need is a true service to our community. The faces of those in need include children, seniors, and everyone in between. Imagine the difference you can make right here in our community. Join me in being part of that difference!

are you considering the homeless derelicts in downtown san jose and downtown palo alto? people wouldRead More be in deep trouble without some community organizations to at least provide some kind of safety net. these kinds of services are very much needed

CSA only services the communities of Mountain View, Los Altos and Los Altos Hill. They likely have aRead More referral service that offers help to people from other areas. Thanks for your concern Randy!

Why do some pretend that climate change trends only in one direction? All natural processes areRead More cyclic, including those processes that influence climate variation. It's ludicrous to maintain that somehow "global warming" falls outside the bounds of the norm. There is no definitive proof of an anthropogenic CO2/global average surface temperature causal connection, nor is there any relevance to global average surface temperature as the ultimate indicator of climate variation. The evidence suggests otherwise, that temperature fluctuation influences atmospheric CO2 concentration, with lag times up to 800 years, and that solar and cosmic cycles influence global temperatures, along with other natural cycles. The above article is replete with distortions, misstatements of fact and outright falsities based on outdated information, too numerous to list here. A simple review of relevant, up to date literature reveals that the science of climate variation is not settled as some would have us believe.

These are quite typical half-truths considered before . No, you are not more clever, hip, aware orRead More competent than 97% of the world's published climate scientists.
