  1. Harvesting PeaceRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Apr 23 | Pasadena Weekly

    A somber examination of war in general and the brief conflict in Abkhazia in particular - not through armed exchanges but personal struggles waged on the battlefield's periphery - the 2013 Oscar- and Golden Globe-nominated Estonian-Georgian film "Tangerines" opens Friday at the Laemmle Playhouse 7 in Pasadena. Remember those wars that Americans thought would be over in a few months or a few years? Remember Vietnam? The 40th anniversary of the fall of Saigon, which is next Thursday, April 30, marked the end of that bloody 19-year-long conflict.

    Those who ascended the mountain in hopes of blocking constrauction of the facility - at 98.4 feet in diameter the largest telescope in the world, one with 12 times higher resolution than the Hubble Space Telescope, and presumably able to see 13 billion light years into the past - believe Mauna Kea is a sacred site, a home to the souls of ancestors and deities that has been desecrated far too many times already. Against Caltech - operators of the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory, and along with the University of California a member of the governing board of the California Association for Research in Astronomy, managers of the W.M.

In contrast to the authorities in that shameful St. Louis suburb who reacted to peaceful protests over the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown by rolling out armored military vehicles, tear gas and battlefield weapons in an over-the-top show of force, Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez attempted to ease tensions surrounding the death of Kendrec McDade through dialogue, respect for organized protests and by calling for independent investigations.

    Nope, residents of northeastern Pasadena finally have an Indian place all for themselves, although given its smallish size, I doubt if it will be able to accommodate all those who despise the madding crowds and must pay parking on the west side of town and who have been waiting quite a while with great anticipation for the opening of MINTLEAF Indian Cuisine.
