Housing SOS!!! A very good friend of mine is in need of housing in the San Lorenzo Valley or surrounding area. They have been given a 90 day notice to vacate. They can afford $1600, can do tiny living, a family of 3 adults (mother, father, and 18 year old son) with a dog. Mother has been working at UCSC for 10+ years. If you know of any rentals please let me know. You can always reach me by email Rachel@WidflowersCreations.com

2 earthquakes this morning, 4.4 in Berkeley, and then 2.6 in Cupertino.

At 2:39 am there was a 4.4 earthquake centered in Berkeley. It was felt as a light shaking, a jolt more than a role, as far south as Santa Cruz, north as Santa Rosa, and east as Sacramento. In my household in Boulder Creek in the Santa Cruz Mountains, our son slept threw it, and it woke us adults, our dog and cats seemed completely unaffected.

The quake was initially reported as a magnitude 4.7, but was quickly downgraded to a 4.5, and then downgraded again to 4.4. Its exact location was 37.861°N 122.242°W, with a depth of 13.0 km. That’s Panoramic Hill just 1.8 miles southeast of Berkeley University. It could be felt for 5 to 10 seconds.

Almost an hour later at 3:34 am several Boulder Creek residents reported feeling what they thought was an aftershock, but it wasn’t it was a completely different earthquake. This time it was magnitude 2.6 and was centered in Cupertino. It also felt much different, like a soft rolling. In our household no one woke up, I was still awake working on writing.

As of 1:45 pm there have been no aftershocks of either earthquake.

Sometimes doors close because you are physically disabled, and it can be crushing. Video's like this though, it gives me hope. Thanks Toni King for sharing, and making me smile today.

Hispanic House Representatives were asked to leave a meeting on Capital Hill with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) yesterday

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) have been trying to have a meeting with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). It was originally scheduled for Tuesday this week, but it was cancelled by ICE saying too many attendants had signed up. It was then rescheduled for yesterday #DayWithoutImmigrants. The bi-partisan meeting started yesterday and then CHC members were asked to leave, Reps Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Rep Norma Torres (D-CA). Other members of CHC were not even allowed to enter the meeting, including Grace Napolitano (D-CA) and Juan Vargas (D-CA). This was done by a Paul Ryan spokeswoman (R-WI) and Rep Bob Goodlatte (R-VA). Remember the only reason this meeting even happened is because CHC requested it, and then they were not even allowed to attend.

I find it quite disturbing that Hispanic House Representatives were not allowed to attend a meeting about ICE, which affects a mostly Hispanic population.

The 115th Congress is the most diverse ever this year, with 34 Hispanics in the House and 4 Hispanics in the Senate. Giving them a 38 seats total in Congress, that’s 7% of the seats. Hispanics make up 17% of the United States population. For comparison Women hold 104 seats in Congress, that’s 19% of the seats, but Women are 51% of the population. We still very much am a government run by white males, but are getting better. But when meetings like this happen with ICE or any other department of government and people of a certain race, sex, religion, sexual orientation, or other group are asked to leave when that department of government is currently engaged in actions against that particular group it is highly concerning.
