New Year’s Eve 1993 concert in Oakland, Calif.  Kurt practically threw that guitar down….he was PISSED.   told  the guy off too……and the guy was laughed at by everyone, and thrown out.

Meet The Missouri Town Where Everyone Is Under Arrest

Meet The Missouri Town Where Everyone Is Under Arrest

A tiny town in Missouri has a minor-crime arrest rate that is 100 times the national average. According to a report covered by The Huffington Post, Beverly Hills (not to be confused with Beverly Hills, Calif.) averages an astounding 1,087 arrests per 1,000 people on an annual basis, and they collect fines and fees that average $400 per resident, per year. These statistics shine a sharp light on…

XTEN Architecture

2015 Residential Architect Design Awards
Custom/Under 3,000 Square Feet
Award

On an existing footprint in the Hollywood Hills, Culver City, Calif.–based XTEN Architecture built a 2,835-square-foot, abstracted black-and-white house that connects to the outdoors through loosely defined boundaries between interior and exterior. Outside, black Venetian plaster conceals a high-performance roofing system designed to reduce solar gain; the house uses passive cooling from floor-to-ceiling glass pocket doors and second-floor clerestory windows. Inside, white lacquered cabinets sit on white concrete epoxy floors, and white plaster and steel finishes complete a monochrome palette where rooms bleed into each other. A steel stair leads from a terrace cantilevered off the kitchen to a rooftop sundeck, and overscaled windows in the living spaces catch views of the Hollywood sign and Griffith Park Observatory. —Deane Madsen, Assoc. AIA

From the Jury

“This has a formal language outside of most of the other things we’ve seen, even in Southern California.”

'AVENGERS' SEQUEL IS SECOND BIGGEST US OPENER OF ALL TIME

Ultron making a victory fist,lol

Sunday, May 03, 2015 06:01PMLOS ANGELES, Calif. –The Avengers are mighty, but not enough to beat themselves. The Marvel and Disney sequel earned a staggering $187.7 million in its debut weekend, making it the second biggest U.S. opening of all time according to Rentrak estimates Sunday.

Playing on 4,276 screens, the audiences for “Ultron’s” debut were 59 percent male and 41 percent under the age of 25.

“We’re in rare air here,” said Hollis. “Having the second biggest opening weekend in the history of the movie business is always going to be something you walk away overwhelmingly happy with. The momentum of the brand for Marvel at this point is really something to take a step back and admire.”

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT


Like Native Movies? Forget Netflix, Check Out NativeFlix!

Amerind Media Group, the Native owned and operated media company in Hollywood, Calif., has launched NativeFlix, a video-on-demand service that will allow viewers to watch movies, television series, documentaries and educational programs from their computers and on mobile devices.

“For too long, quality Indigenous entertainment has been available only in a fragmented way,” Tim Harjo, CEO of AMG, said in a news release. “We’ve created a new, convenient, and affordable way to watch quality Indigenous entertainment in one place.”

The service currently offers several genres of programming, including children and family, comedy, lifestyle, culture, drama, and music. And will eventually bring original programs to its audience.

The company is working with tribes, and tribal based organizations to offer discounted subscription packages. Its subscription fee is $5.99 per month, compared to Netflix, which charges $7.99 for its basic offerings. Customers can also rent new releases for $3.99.

AMG is also developing an app for mobile and streaming devices, and they will offer pay-per-view access of major Indigenous events such as pow wows, Indian rodeos, and sporting events, the release said.

Pygmalion and Galatea by  Jean-Léon Gérôme

Between 1890 and 1893, Gérôme made both painted and sculpted variations on the theme of Pygmalion and Galatea, the tale recounted in Ovid’s Metamorphoses. All depict the moment when the sculpture of Galatea was brought to life by the goddess Venus, in fulfillment of Pygmalion’s wish for a wife as beautiful as the sculpture he created. This is one of three known versions in oil that are likely based on a polychrome marble sculpture, also fashioned by Gérôme (Hearst Castle, San Simeon, Calif.). In each of the paintings, the sculpture appears at a different angle, as though it was being viewed in the round.

What do you think?  Watch and read before you answer please.

In a March 2012 trawl survey, wildlife officials found 296 fish. An identical sampling a month later found 143. But in April 2015, officials found a single fish, not enough to propagate the species.

Biologists successfully raise the smelt in dozens of temperature-controlled tanks. Beginning with 160 fish in 2006, the labs produce 250 pairs a year using artificial insemination, squeezing eggs from each female into a bowl, then fertilizing them with male sperm. Two months later, the tiny larvae emerge from beakers full of eggs. Problem is the fish, which live no longer than a year, have nowhere to go. Unable to survive in the delta, most are handed over to researchers trying to figure out how to save the species.

Why are none being released to see if they survive after this many years of diverting the water ?

Why just pass them around and for how long? 

Will they lose the ability to produce naturally?

Who is paying for the study and how long dose it last?

Why not divert some water to the farmers?

Produce will sky rocket, more farms, homes property lost, higher unemployment.

No easy solution. :(

Proposed Legislation Would Make Space Settlement a National Goal

The Space Exploration, Development, and Settlement Act of 2015, drafted by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.), would mark the second time in the last three decades that Congress has directed NASA to support efforts for permanent human settlements beyond Earth orbit.
