Declaration of Independence
in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People
to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with
another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate
and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's
God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind
requires that they should declare the causes which impel them
to the Separation.
hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created
equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable
Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of
Happiness -- That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted
among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the
Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive
of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish
it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on
such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to
them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established
should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly
all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer,
while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing
the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train
of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object,
evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is
their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and
to provide new Guards for their future Security. Such has been
the patient Sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the
Necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems
of Government. The History of the present King of Great- Britain
is a History of repeated Injuries and Usurpations, all having
in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over
these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid
Bill of Rights
I Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,
or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom
of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably
to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
II A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of
a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall
not be infringed.
III No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house,
without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a
manner to be prescribed by law.
IV The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses,
papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures,
shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable
cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing
the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
V No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise
infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand
Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or
in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public
danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to
be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled
in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived
of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor
shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
Amendment VI In
all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to
a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and
district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district
shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed
of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with
the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining
witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel
for his defence.
Amendment VII In
suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed
twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved,
and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in
any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of
the common law.
Amendment VIII Excessive
bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel
and unusual punishments inflicted.
Amendment IX The
enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not
be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
Amendment X The
powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution,
nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States

The coupling of biotech with

"prepare for kindness
Last week, I approached the
cashier at Berkeley Bowl grocery store in Berkeley, Calif., with
my produce and a smile. As he rang me up, he avoided eye contact
at all times, never breaking sacred eye union with my vegetables.
I waited for an opportunity to say, 'Hi, how are you?' or some
other variant of polite small talk, but nothing.
I immediately blamed myself.
How could I have been so stupid? He can tell I got the non-organic
tomatoes from Mexico instead of the locally grown ones from the
homeless cooperative, not to mention that I didn't get the cage-free
Then it hit me. 'Oh no,'
I thought. 'He's a vegan, and he hates me now.' I looked to the
customers behind me in line and noticed they had brought cloth
grocery bags, then looked back to the cashier as he was stuffing
my purchases into paper ones. There was no time to explain that
I was just in town for the week, that I usually bring cloth bags
when shopping back home, and that at least the yogurt was organic.
It was too late.
Now that I look back, he
probably didn't hate me at all. He was just a real Californian,
just like I used to be before Missourians perverted my sensibilities.
In Missouri, the cashier at Root Cellar not only says hi at the
register, she says hi when she recognizes me on the street. In
Missouri, strangers offer to drive you to the liquor store or
to get food so you won't have to wade in 18 inches of snow to
get there, then drive off mysteriously afterward without asking
for a tip or a beer.
They wouldn't do that in
the Golden State, and not just because there's no snow anyway
or because no one's dumb enough to get in a car with a stranger.
It's because in California, people are too cool, too busy or too
afraid you're secretly a junkie waiting to shank them and take
their money to help anyone. Back home, people don't say, 'God
bless you,' when they ask for spare change and you don't have
any like they do in Missouri. They just curse at you or spit on
Though it may sound strange,
I appreciate this shared language of Californians - but that doesn't
mean I don't look forward to eye contact and small talk when I'm

" 'Ghost Light':The tale of a parent lost
takes on dazzling depth in New Theatre" a review by Roberta Kent, dailytidings.com.
"Fathers and sons. The
ghost of unfulfilled expectations. The anguish of premature loss.
These are difficult subjects to tackle, more so within the context
of a play.
And, perhaps, even more difficult
for the son of a famous father.
These are the themes that
Jonathan Moscone and Tony Taccone address in 'Ghost Light,' which
opened Saturday in the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's New Theatre.
Moscone is the artistic director of the California Shakespeare
Theater. Taccone is the artistic director of the Berkeley Repertory
Theatre. The two men are close friends and the play, written by
Taccone, conceived and developed by both and directed by Moscone,
evolved from many conversations, many shared memories.
But George Moscone was an
extraordinary man. First elected to the San Francisco Board of
Supervisors in 1963, he fought for the poor and minorities and
small businesses. He was elected to the California State Senate
in 1963 and quickly became majority leader. Courageous and feisty,
he consistently backed a progressive agenda and won on issues
such as school lunches and - most impressively - the repeal of
California's sodomy law. He was larger than life, a man with a
tremendous future in national politics.
Jonathan Moscone was 14 years
old when his father was murdered. He was home from school and

" 3D printing" at wikipedia.org.
"3D printing is
a form of additive manufacturing technology where a three
dimensional object is created by laying down successive layers
of material. 3D printers are generally faster, more affordable
and easier to use than other additive manufacturing technologies.
3D printers offer product developers the ability to print parts
and assemblies made of several materials with different mechanical
and physical properties in a single build process. Advanced 3D
printing technologies yield models that can serve as product prototypes.
A 3D printer works by taking
a 3D computer file and constructing from it a series of cross-sectional
slices. Each slice is then printed one on top of the other to
create the 3D object.
Since 2003 there has been
large growth in the sale of 3D printers. Additionally, the cost
of 3D printers has declined. The technology also finds
use in the jewellery, footwear, industrial design, architecture,
engineering and construction (AEC), automotive, aerospace, dental
and medical industries, among others."

"Future of electric cars hinges on better
batteries" by Dana
"Electric cars are a game-changing technology with an Achilles'
heel - the battery.
Current batteries are expensive
and have limited range, making it hard to drive from San Jose
to San Francisco and back without stopping to recharge. Experts
agree consumers will never fully embrace electric vehicles until
they can travel as far as a gas-powered car on a single charge.
So the global race is on
to build a better lithium-ion battery, one that pulls off the
herculean feat of extending range while being long-lasting, affordable,
quick-charging and safe.
In Asia, governments and
big battery companies are investing heavily in next-generation
battery technology, while in the United States much of the cutting-edge
research is being performed at Department of Energy labs and universities.
The Bay Area - home to Palo Alto-based Tesla Motors (TSLA), Lawrence
Berkeley National Laboratory and two dozen battery startups -
has emerged as one of the nation's leading hubs of battery innovation."
