Matt Ridley The evidence that dreaming helps to improve memory and learning is getting stronger My latest column in the Wall Street Journal is on the purpose of dreams: Chancing last week on a study about the calming effect of dreams on people with post-traumatic stress disorder, I decided to read recent research on dreams. When I looked at this topic about 20 years ago, it was clear that our ignorance of the purpose of dreaming was almost tota...

I really hope this venture works out for you Max - it sounds like everyone is interested but wary, but knowing you that's sure to improve :) Definitely sounds like a viable solution to a serious issue though.

FOOD POISONING! My friend and I went here on Feb 9, 2016. We had been here once before and came for the large portions. Well, this was a big mistake. I ate an order of onion rings, a glass of milk, ketchup, and the onion ring sauce. My friend ordered a sweet crepe with chocolate, bananas, and strawberries. Within about 2 hours of eating the food it started to hit us both. My friend and I decided to call it a night and head home. I spent the next 24hrs stumbling my way between my bed and the bathroom. I had all of the classic symptoms of acute food poisoning : abdomen pain, cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, chills, dehydration, dizziness, fatigue, fever, lightheadedness, loss of appetite, malaise, and a cold sweat. My friend reported to me via text that he had come down with similar symptoms (though mine were more severe, as his ended the same evening). Right now it's been 24hrs since this ordeal started, and I feel better but not great, I just hope it ends soon. Lets just say if you're in the mood for a crepe (or a bunch of onion rings) they're going to cost you a lot more than $12.95.

I have been living at Villa Del Sol since 2010. Here are the quick pros and cons of this apartment complex: Short Summary: A decent place with a friendly staff, good location, and boring appliances. But if you value your electric car or want to keep the option of going green for your next car open, you should look elsewhere. PROS: - Friendly Staff: The office and maintenance staff is very friendly (Rebecca, Pari, and Marco). They will do their best to solve your problem in a timely and friendly manner. There was a less friendly staff member some time ago, but she has since moved on. - Safe: The property is relatively safe. Since I've been here, they've had someone break into the mailboxes two or three times, and I've had my storage room broken into once... however given that I've been here for about five years, this seems reasonable for the area. Nothing of value was ever actually taken. - Well Maintained: The grounds are well maintained. The pool, gym, and other facilities are clean, accessible, and up to date. - Nice Neighbors: The neighbors are friendly, quiet, and mostly keep to themselves. I have carelessly left my keys on my front door more times than I care to admit; so far there has always been some nice neighbor to ring the doorbell and alert me to the issue. Can't complain. - Good location: The place is well situated near Sunnyvale's downtown, an up-and-coming area with new shops and restaurants as of late. Cal-train is an 8-minute walk. [ So why only 3 stars? Read on! ] CONS: - (Minus 1 star) Functional but outdated appliances: Each appliance is the sort of bargain-bin thing you'd find at the hardware store circa 1997. Some of them are showing their age. For example, I have had a couple of refrigerators since moving in here, and each has had a different problem. My current refrigerator leaks water into the rear area of the inside of the fridge, but I have decided to simply put a water-collection bin inside the fridge and deal with the problem myself. Getting yet another fridge with a new (probably worse) problem is not high on the list. Also the A/C at Del Sol is NOT apartment-wide, you only get A/C in the living room. - (Minus 1 star) NO Electric Car Charging: These days, a lot of apartment complexes, companies, and even parks around here have electric car charging ports accessible to customers... But not Villa Del Sol. Unfortunately Villa Del Sol has decided not to add a single charging station in their garages. Residents cannot even charge using a standard 110 volt charger. In other words, forget Villa Del Sol if you have or are thinking of ever buying an electric vehicle. I have asked the office staff about this issue on multiple occasions and every time they give me the same story - "It's coming!" and that "We don't have a date, or even a season yet... but maybe sometime next year!". I have also sent emails to the property owners and other folks higher-up on the food chain, and basically they have given me the same "go away, stop bothering us with this" answer. Given that I've wanted to change my car for a leaf or something similar for more than a few months, the lack of a clear timeframe or even a clear "no, it won't happen" has been very frustrating to say the least. It is clear the property owner has dropped the ball on this, and I am tired of getting the run-around. Unless this is remedied promptly, I won't be renewing my lease when it comes up; there are simply better properties nearby that actually take electric cars and charging seriously.
