Being prepared! 
Questions remain over whether vulnerable areas of California and the Pacific Northwest are adequately prepared for the Big One.

Just like with the super storms and tornadoes, it will be a futile exercise in finger pointing as if no one knew there was a possibility it could/would happen.

R.I.P. Gabriel Garcia Marquez. 100 Years of Solitude is one of the best books I've ever read. It was like having kaleidoscopes projecting the story on my mind. I will always remember the gold fish, the grandmother, the cow(s) and the train.

The sign of the times in San Francisco. Landlords tempt tenants with a $50,000 move out offer
The rent-controlled space costs the family $549 a month - a nearly impossible price to match in today's scorching real estate market. San Francisco landlords have made use of buyouts for years, but the practice "seems to be becoming the preferred method" of ousting tenants in the current economic boom, said Ted Gullicksen, executive director of the San Francisco Tenants Union, which has tracked nearly 900 buyouts reported to the group since 2006...

Code Switching: How Stereotypes work and succeed
People tend to think that stereotypes are honest reflections of what they see in the world. But instead, they often shape how we see the world, how we metabolize the data in front of us. It's confirmation bias: if people see a lot of Jews playing and dominating basketball, and the common stereotype is that Jews are crafty schemers, in the popular imagination, the sport becomes about crafty scheming. And if someone were writing back then about why so few blacks were among the game's biggest names, they'd probably fall back on hoary stereotypes about black players lacking the necessary intelligence or craftiness or work ethic.
The early days of college hoops were dominated by flashy players who were thought to be naturally suited for the game and who saw the sport as their way out of the ghetto. They're not who you suspect.
