Hysterical!  But I can also recall having just such a conversation with my once-two-year-old daughter!

OAKLAND -- After a massive and mostly peaceful demonstration against large corporations Wednesday eroded into late night clashes with police and 80 arrests, people on both sides of the fence were in damage control mode, with Occupy Oakland organizers and city officials trying to figure out what to do next. "It shouldn't mar the overall impact of the demonstration and the fact that people in the 99 percent movement demonstrated peacefully and for the most part were productive and very peaceful," Quan said. "This morning we focused on ensuring local businesses can open." . . . Occupy Oakland camp also met to rehash the night's events. During a three-hour meeting Thursday morning the group reached an anti-vandalism consensus that sought to separate the main movement from those who smashed property, lit fires and attacked police. But rather than apologize outright, the group decided to tell the damaged businesses that they were sorry and offer to help. . . . And once again, many small business owners were stuck dealing with the aftermath: shattered glass from smashed windows, graffiti, and theft. . . For some, it was a disheartening turn of events after what had been a mostly peaceful and uplifting protest. "When I went home last night, I thought everything was fine and dandy," Hank Bailey said. Cortt Dunlap, owner of Awaken Café at Frank Ogawa Plaza, had a similar assessment - "It's really two different groups," he said. "The Occupy Oakland group didn't call for this violence and destruction." That struggle was evident even in the graffiti and signs that appeared at the epicenter of the movement. On one wall, someone had painted, "not until the last capitalist is hung with the entrails of the last bureaucrat." Next to it was a red heart with this message: "Nonviolence works better."

Here is where I've been keeping notes about my research.  Ostensibly I began these pages in order to easily share information with my family members, but in short order I had various other researchers contacting me about overlaps in our lineages.  Using this method has given me access to far more information than ever before.

'Oldest Living Thing On Earth' Threatened By Climate Change
Scientists working in the Mediterranean recently discovered what is thought to be the oldest living species on Earth: a patch of giant seagrass, Posidonia oceanic, growing in underwater meadows that span more than 2,000 miles between Spain to Cyprus. Australian scientists sequenced the DNA of samples of the giant seagrass and found that it was most likely to be around 100,000 years-old, although it could be up to 200,000 years-old. If you were able to dig up the entire meadow of seagrass, it would weigh more than 6,000 tons.

After a mostly peaceful demonstration on Wednesday, as the "demonstrators massed again at the City Hall plaza, the situation devolved. The Occupy Oakland demonstrators managed to gain entry to an empty building that had housed the Travelers Aid Society, a nonprofit organization that assists the homeless but had suffered funding cuts. Leaflets indicated that protesters had targeted the building for 'reuse.' They branded it a new 'community center' in Twitter feeds. Video from a local ABC affiliate's helicopter showed jubilant crowds flowing in and out of the building, where a banner marked 'Occupy Everything' hung. Others built a barricade nearby, presumably to discourage police. Shortly before midnight, local media reported that police officers from various agencies were suiting up in riot gear. Some demonstrators set the barricade aflame. Firefighters doused it. A police statement later said protesters had hurled rocks, explosives, bottles and flaming objects at officers."

UC's Office of the President (for whom I work), located in downtown Oakland just a couple of blocks away from the Occupy Oakland encampment, first told us that we 'could' work from home tomorrow (Nov 2nd) to avoid problems resulting from the proposed General Strike demonstration. By end of day we've been told we 'should' work from home because fliers are being distributed encouraging a 'shut down of UCOP'. Not sure what outcome is wanted by the Occupy Oakland folks and how it would be gauged a success.

I used to do occasional shopping at this store when it was Longs Drugs. When CVS bought it there was a confusing period those of us who work close by thought would eventually pass. It didn't. CVS' prices climb, fade 'deals' are offered (be sure and read the fine print before you're caught up at the cashier). I've been getting one Rx filled here for ages, yet each time I get it renewed it is a mini-ordeal, with little clear explanation to me as to why. Just the past week they decided to change things up by expiring my Rx after a few months (it has always been a 1 year Rx from my Dr., I have authorization from my insurance for a year, but CVS insists that because it is in their system as currently expired, one of those others must have specified a shorter time - i.e. it could not possibly be an error on THEIR part). I don't plan to ever return to this store for anything - I'd rather do without or make sure I do whatever shopping I have at stores near my home.
