nothing to do while on winter break? plant a tree!
 
"Regardless of how you feel about our chances of reducing carbon emissions quickly and significantly, even that alone isn’t going to remove carbon dioxide from our atmosphere.

But doing something as simple as planting trees will."

Yes, carbon levels in our atmosphere are rising, it's causing the Earth to warm and the climate to change, and our dependence on fossil fuels isn't going away anytime soon. Yet even if we ceased all carbon emissions today, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is already high enough that it is likely to result in long-term catastrophic effects. But getting that carbon that's already in the atmosphere out of it isn't a pie-in-the-sky dream, it's a solvable problem that's as easy as planting a tree, something every one of us can help do with very little time, money and effort.
It won’t solve everything, but there’s something we can all do to help sequester carbon. It’s as easy as planting a tree…

In the first part of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, a shy young hobbit, Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), inherits a simple gold ring. He knows the ring ...

The train of game changing AWESOME news for Americans from the Obama administration can't, won't and don't stop.

http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2015/01/08/president-proposes-make-community-college-free-responsible-students-2-years
The President unveils the America’s College Promise proposal to make two years of community college free for responsible students, letting students earn the first half of a bachelor’s degree and earn skills needed in the workforce at no cost.

Naive questions from a non-American with rudimentary notions of how the American political system works ("works" might be a stretch ;-):
1. Why are all these news only coming up after he lost both houses?
2. I understand this is a proposal, but how can it be enacted without support from either (or both?) houses?
3. … I guess the real question is: how does this work? :)

If you know you're getting a watered down Chinese food experience, Eric's is hard to beat. Ingredients seem fresh and dishes are well balanced. Good prices, casual decor, fast & friendly-ish service, open air and plenty of sunlight in this space.

Been there for both lunch and brunch now. Brunch is definitely their strong suit, just look at their menu. I had the duck ragout at $9, cup of coffee $3, coupled with the morning bun. All outstandingly executed. I do love my brunch and I've been to aplenty in SF. Don't let the overly stylized hipster motif deter you; IMHO, this is the best brunch in SF.

Beers were great. Food was executed way below expectations. We had a steak and a porkchop, supposedly their signature dishes. The wait for the dishes seemed much longer than appropriate, even though our wait was broken up by an appetizer (which was good). Finally both arrived, but both were at room temperature. WTF. The steak was thin, lack caramelization and had grill marks reminiscent of the faux grill marks on McDonald's McRibs. Our neighboring diners actually complained about their dishes, which were the same as ours, but in fact looked even more poorly prepared. What was worse was that when our neighboring diners complained, the waiter was completely unapologetic, not offering to "make it up" to them. This was pretty astonishingly bad service for a supposed higher end restaurant. Unless I hear from more trusted sources., I'd probably never go there again for real food. Stick w/ the Monk's Kettle - you'll be happier and it costs about 40% less. Think of this as the Monk's Kettle that's lost its soul...and quality control.

Simple, fresh ingredients, all combined with loving care to bring you Scandinavian flavors you'll unlikely to get...unless you head to Scandinavia. I can't say it's "true" style Scandinavian, but rather modified for the West Coast palate, yet done very successfully. Long waits, moderately priced and definitely worth it.

Actually, service is mediocre at best. But you don't come here for the service. You come here for the best glazed donuts in California. If you're lucky, you get to watch the glazing process, which requires a lot more human involvement that the sterile roboticism of Krispy Kreme's (who decided to name a donut shop "Krispy"?). Nobody doesn't love their glazed donuts. Nobody.
