Victoria and Albert Museum

Visiting the Victoria and Albert Museum is a must. The modern glass sculpture by Chihuly in the main lobby. We set out to find the famous ceramic staircase. At one time the whole existing museum at the time was going to be totally done this way but it proved to be too expensive. Moldings made of famous structures. Another interesting room. Looking up in the cafe. Afterwards we walked over to see the Albert Memorial. And passed the becoming rare phon...

Also on Instagram I had seen a picture of an interesting store called the Liberty, so we headed over there. The one we saw-there are several-has an Elizabethan looking exterior and the wood seen there came from ships. It was built in 1924 although it certainly doesn’t look like it. Interesting interior too. It looks like an old market inside. They were well known for their fabric too. A pub outside. They always look so cool. This pub is called Shakespeare’s Head ...

Trump reignites California water wars

California’s decades-old conflict over distribution of water among farmers, urban users and environmental enhancement bears an uncanny resemblance to the decades of sectarian struggles in the Middle East — minus the bloodshed. In both arenas, periodic efforts are made to forge enduring peace agreements, but just when they seem to be bearing fruit, they are undermined by some new flareup. Gov. Gavin Newsom has been trying to finalize what predecessor Jerry Brown began, a series of so-called “volu...

White House abandons wildlife board criticized as pro-hunting

The Trump administration has quietly abandoned a wildlife advisory board that animal rights groups said was illegally stacked with politically connected donors and hunting enthusiasts, and designed to promote trophy hunting.

Has Newsom settled the water wars?

The beating heart of California’s massive system of capturing, storing and distributing water is the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Water flows into the West’s largest estuary from the Sacramento, San Joaquin and several lesser rivers that drain the state’s mountain chains on its northern and eastern edges. While most of the water continues into the Pacific Ocean, giant pumps on the southern edge of the Delta suck much of it into canals supplying San Joaquin Valley farms and Southern California c...

How the Trump administration is putting public records under threat, so history may never know the awful things they did

Many abuses of the Trump administration are sadly nothing out of the ordinary — rather, they're just continuations of the snowballing precedent of presidential power abuses set forth by their predecessors. But there are still some ways in which Trump's real estate legal bullying tactics have made for a uniquely terrible and dangerous situation. Consider his liberal use of non-disclosure agreements that trap public servants — people whose should be part of the public record to which they should b...
