KZYX News
Fort Bragg to purchase property for three more reservoirs

December 1, 2022, Sarah Reith — The Fort Bragg City Council voted unanimously this week to purchase over 580 acres from the Mendocino Coast Recreation and Park District, for the purpose of building three 45-acre-foot reservoirs. That's about 14.7 million gallons each, which is also the capacity of the currently existing Summers Lane reservoir. John Smith, Fort Bragg's Operations Manager, reported to the Council that, even with that reservoir and the desalination plant, the city, which sells water to nearby communities, is likely to be dependent on stored water for quite some time. The city relies solely on surface water from the Noyo River and two spring-fed sources, Newman Gulch and Waterfall Gulch. Smith said production from the gulches is way down, and dry conditions are likely to continue. “Newman Gulch and Waterfall Gulch, as I've mentioned before, have been decreasing steadily in the last ten years,” he told the Council. “Most recently in the last five years, Waterfall has decreased by 67%, which is a lot. And Newman, as well, 42% down. Where we do gain some ground in the reverse osmosis world, we're losing ground elsewhere.” The city is now in the process of purchasing the six parcels in the property, which, including escrow, could take 4-6 weeks. The maximum amount the city agreed to pay for the land is just over $2.4 million. Though the reservoirs will be covered to reduce evaporation and algae growth, Smith plans to make accommodations for helicopters to pull water for fire suppression. He's optimistic about finding grant funding to build solar panel covers and a substation for each reservoir, but Smith was careful not to raise the council's expectations for that particular benefit. “The reservoir solar cover,” he specified; “that's not a promise. That's a hope, and something that we will definitely be pursuing.” In a brief interview after the meeting, Smith said that when he looked into the solar project in 2015, the estimated cost was $7-8 million for each reservoir, at $5 million per substation and $3 million for the solar panels. The whole array could generate a total three megawatts of energy, enough to power the city's facilities. Smith expects the reservoirs themselves will take thirty acres of land, leaving 550 acres for basic outdoor recreation. The property is currently zoned for timber production, but the city plans to annex it and place it in conservation. “Develop a community forest is what we expect to do with it,” he said. “Most of those sensitive species and habitat, you just can't touch it. You can't move it. There's no development, really, that's possible out there. It's so sensitive and so rare.” The reservoirs themselves will not be available for aquatic recreation. According to a staff report, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife has six recommendations to protect and rehabilitate the native plant life, which has suffered from illegal dumping and off-road driving. The recommendations include installing wildlife-friendly fencing, removing concrete rubble and barriers, placing boardwalks on the existing trails, removing invasive species, and installing an on-site manager to discourage illegal use of the property. “Water supply for the reservoirs,” Smith said: “We're going to fill them during the winter months, as mentioned. We've got the pump station at the water plant to help fill them.” He reported that he has spoken with LafCo (the Local Agency Formation Commission), which found nothing complicated about the city's plans to annex the property. He added that the water rights are based on the reservoirs' status as off-stream storage of diverted water, which is the same as the Summers Lane reservoir. “The Department of Drinking Water (is) always happy to see us add something that's going to help our water situation,” he noted. As for Fish and Wildlife, he assured the Council, the agency is “very excited about off-stream storage.” Mayor Bernie Norvell said he was glad to preserve the majority of the property, and be in a position to continue delivering water to other towns. “It was really difficult, certainly for me, last year, to have to shut off those outside water sales,” he said. “So this goes a long way in that direction. I'm really proud of that. So thank you.” Rain is in the forecast for Fort Bragg through the weekend, but the amounts have decreased drastically over the last ten years.During public comment, Shelley Green reminded the council that conservation is an important strategy as overall rainfall dwindles. “Folks in the community did conserve 30% of their water use this year,” she told the Council; “and when we had the Fort Bragg bucket brigade, I developed a simple spreadsheet where people could determine exactly where and how much water they were using in their homes, and learned simple behavior changes and perhaps adapt their plumbing, between $30-$50 per household, in order to cut their use by 50%. So that's another great resource we can always use, when or before necessary.” The city is currently working on several other water projects: an $11 million grant-funded overhaul of the water treatment plant and the $8.8 million raw water line project, also funded by a state grant. Work on building the reservoirs won't start until after the city annexes the property and lines up a contractor to design them. Smith doesn't expect to break ground on the project for another 18 months to two years.

One of the heroes of American history and the story of the survival of the English colonists at Plymouth in the mid 17th century is a man named Squanto. His given name was Tisquantum, but he came to be known as Squanto. He was a native American interpreter and guide for early English colonists. While little is known about his early life, some scholars believe that he was taken from home to England in 1605 by George Weymouth and returned to his native homeland with explorer John Smith in 1614–15. His almost decade long residence in London coincides with when Shakespeare was writing plays about shipwrecked colonists encountering native tribes on mysterious far away islands. Our friends, and previous guests to the show for Thanksgiving last year (see that episode here) are father and son history team, David and Aaron Bradford.

This week on Balance Your Life podcast I am joined by Georgia St. John-Smith. Georgia built up a successful corporate career, but when she reached a certain level of “success”, she had a “what now?” moment. She had all the money she needed and more, but was experiencing burnout and knew there must be another way. So, she set on a mission to find out how to create a life that balanced her ambition for success in business, alongside living the life of freedom she was craving. It started with a trip to Bali to study the science behind ancient yogic and meditation practices from the Eastern world that have been proven to do just that. Soon after, she traded her fast-paced London lifestyle for the laid-back island of Ibiza. Georgia is the founder of Sancti, a retreats brand that's developed a unique and transformational experience, inspired by Ibiza, for those who want to be industry leaders. People who set trends rather than following them. Cultivating a collective of high performers who change the way business operates. Say goodbye to burnout and stress that is woven through society, and hello to a new way of working that feeds your soul. On this episode we talk about moving from London England to the island of Ibiza, leaving her corporate career to pursue her passions, and her yoga teacher training experience. We also discuss what people can expect when they go on a SANCTI retreat, activities and transformations people experience during the retreat, her wellness rituals, and so much more! ------------------------------------- Connect with Meghan: Instagram| TikTok| Facebook| YouTube| Website To Email the Show: podcast@balancebymeghan.com Connect with Georgia: Instagram | LinkedIn ------------------------------- Shop my Amazon Store Front where I link all my favourite wellness, lifestyle, and beauty products and brands. -------------------------- Red Light therapy is an incredible way for you to up level your health and wellness.

I'm Steven Jack Butala.Jill K DeWit:And I'm Jill DeWit, broadcasting from awesome Dallas, Texas.Steven Jack Butala:Today, Jill and I talk about what the real-time commitment is to run your land business. Doesn't matter where you are, you might be on the road in an RV or you might be in your 20 years-plus office.Jill K DeWit:Yeah, that's the thing. Most people come to us having full, awesome, brilliant careers, really smart. We have a lot of very smart brainy people, scientists and pilots, and analysts and accountants in Land Academy. And you've got pharmacists. You know who you are. You've got time commitments, you've got little kids and so it's a really valid question. Like, Boy, I want to do this, but I can't give 40 hours. I can't even for sure say I can give 20. So what is the real-time commitment I need to start and run my own land business? And that's what we're going to talk about today.Steven Jack Butala:Before we get into it, let's take a question posted by one of our members on a landinvestors.com online community, it's free. Before we get to that, did you know that we have a commercial printing company solely created to help you get inexpensive direct mail offers in the hands of sellers quickly? It's called Offers 2 Owners. Offers the number 2owners.com. Jill and I set this company up several years ago and now we've share... We're obviously, now sharing it with members and non-members. Today, fast forward to today, we mail about seven to 800,000 offers a month, and we can do everything for you from start to finish, pulling the data, scrubbing it, collecting comps, and getting it even in first class mail if you'd like to, call 800-725-8816 or email support@offers2owners.com for more information. Nice script writing.Jill K DeWit:Thank you very much.Steven Jack Butala:I appreciate that. You clean that up pretty well.Jill K DeWit:I did. Josiah wrote this is the first email from the seller. Talk about an easy transaction. So here we go. In quotes, "Mr. Ronco, my name is John Smith. I own 40 acres of land in County USA. You recently sent me an offer to purchase it for the sum of $58,244 and 27 cents. The APN is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. I'm currently considering listing my property with a local realtor for the sum of $125,000. I have done a comparable market analysis, CMA and similar properties around mine have sold for around $3,000 an acre. My property is as good or better. I have no liens, no past-due taxes. I have no encumbrances ever or currently. There's no debris." This is nice. I can't believe the seller wrote all this. "There's no debris, mobile homes, structure, automobiles, or trash on my property. The property is primarily oak woodlands with about six acres cleared.I left occasional trees on the cleared land for aesthetics. The property is beautiful. That being said, I will sell you my property for $60,000 under the following conditions." So I want to back up for just a second there. So the offer was-Steven Jack Butala:58.Jill K DeWit:58, so he says make it 60 even. And he thinks you can get 125. Okay. So, okay, "That being said, I will sell you my property for $60,000 under the following conditions. I pay no closing costs, recording fees, or any associated costs of the transfer session of my property to you or your company. In addition, we must close transfer, complete the sale within two weeks of signing the sales contract."Steven Jack Butala:Love that.Jill K DeWit:I checked out the property and the comps and that's the end of the thing. So I'm like done, done and done. That's who we are. So Josiah went on to write, I checked out the property and I checked out the comps. The guy isn't lying. It's worth $125,000 all day and we might even be able to push the price higher because it's so beautiful, perfect for hunting and growing pine.

Neil Kinnock, Baron Kinnock PC is a British former politician. As a member of the Labour Party, he served as a Member of Parliament from 1970 until 1995, first for Bedwellty and then for Islwyn. He was the Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition from 1983 until 1992, and Vice-President of the European Commission from 1999 to 2004. Kinnock was considered as being on the soft left of the Labour Party.Born and raised in South Wales, Kinnock was first elected to the House of Commons in the 1970 general election. He became the Labour Party's shadow education minister after the Conservatives won power in the 1979 general election. After the party under Michael Foot suffered a landslide defeat to Margaret Thatcher in the 1983 election, Kinnock was elected Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition. During his tenure as leader, Kinnock proceeded to fight the party's left wing, especially its Militant tendency, and he opposed NUM leader Arthur Scargill's methods in the 1984–85 miners' strike. He led the party during most of the Thatcher administration, which included its third successive election defeat when Thatcher won the 1987 general election. Although Thatcher had won another landslide, Labour regained sufficient seats for Kinnock to remain Leader of the Opposition following the election.Kinnock led the Labour Party to a surprise fourth consecutive defeat at the 1992 general election, despite the party being ahead of John Major's Conservative government in most opinion polls, which had predicted either a narrow Labour victory or a hung parliament. Shortly afterwards, he resigned as Leader of the Labour Party, being succeeded in the ensuing leadership election by John Smith. He left the House of Commons in 1995 to become a European Commissioner. He went on to become the Vice-President of the European Commission under Romano Prodi from 1999–2004, before being elevated to the House of Lords as Baron Kinnock in 2005. Until the summer of 2009, he was also Chairman of the British Council and President of Cardiff University. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Help out Redwood Research's interpretability team by finding heuristics implemented by GPT-2 small, published by Haoxing Du on October 12, 2022 on LessWrong. Some of Redwood's current research involves finding specific behaviors that language models exhibit, and then doing interpretability to explain how the model does these behaviors. One example of this is the indirect object identification (IOI) behavior, investigated in a forthcoming paper of ours: given the input When John and Mary went to the store, Mary gave a flower to, the model completes John instead of Mary. Another example is the acronym generation task: given the input In a statement released by the Big Government Agency (, the model completes BGA). We are considering scaling up this line of research a bunch, and that means we need a lot more behaviors to investigate! The ideal tasks that we are looking for have the following properties: The task arises in a subset of the training distribution. Both the IOI and the acronym tasks are abundant in the training corpus of language models. This means that we are less interested in tasks specific to inputs that never appear in the training distribution. The ideal task can even be expressed as a regular expression that can be run on the training corpus to obtain the exact subset, as is the case for acronyms. The IOI task is less ideal in this sense, since it is harder to identify the exact subset of the training distribution that involves IOI. There is a simple heuristic for the task. For IOI, the heuristic is “fill in the name that appeared only once so far”. For acronyms, the heuristic is “string together the first letter of each capitalized word, and then close the parentheses”. Note that the heuristic does not have to apply to every instance of the task in the training distribution, e.g. sometimes an acronym is not formed by simply taking the first letter of each word. The gold standard here is if the heuristic can be implemented in an automated way, e.g. as a Python function, but we would also consider the task if a human is needed to supply the labels. GPT-2 small implements this heuristic. We are focusing on the smallest model in the GPT-2 family right now, which is a 117M parameter model that is frankly not that good at most things. We are moderately interested in tasks that bigger models can do that GPT-2 small can't, but the bar is at GPT-2 small right now. Examples The following is a list of tasks that we have found so far/are aware of. Induction and acronym generation remain the tasks that best meet all of the above desiderata. Induction: If the model has seen . A B . in the input, then it is more likely to output B immediately after A when encountering A again. A common use case of induction is remembering complicated names: T|cha|ik|ovsky . T| -> cha|ik|ovsky Acronym generation IOI Email address generation: Hi! My name is John Smith, and I work at Apple. My email address is -> johnsmith@apple.com Subject-verb agreement: The keys to the cabinet -> are and not is, even though the singular “cabinet” is also present in the prompt. (Credit to Nate Thomas) Incrementing citation numbers: Most metals are excellent conductors [1]. However, this is not always the case [ -> 2] (Credit to Lucas Sato) Variations of induction and IOI Extended IOI: identify the right person out of a group with more than two names Inferring someone's last name from name of relative dog_in_house.jpg”> (Credit to Rob Miles) Some examples that we are less excited about include: Closing doc strings, parentheses, etc Close variations of known examples We would love for interested people to contribute ideas!

As we chat with Habteab we come to hear his story. An immigrant from East Africa, who happened to win the visa lottery and he's got such a bright and outgoing, helpful positive attitude that naturally luck found him. As you hear his story of having polio as a child, yet, his father is still paying money for him to go to school, despite all the customs pushing him to do the opposite. He overcame all those challenges to become an immigrant with the American dream, and eventually he become a franchise owner.

And that's no good for the environment and the planet.

Building services engineering, thermal performance, feasibility, sustainability, and conservation are some of their specialities.In this interview, John talks about his work at Cityzen Design and explain what Cityzen does in a nutshell by highlighting two or three projects that he is particularly proud of, as well as aspects of these projects that are good examples of working towards Net Zero. On example is in the photo above. John, like many others, feels that there is not enough energy and action at the local and central government levelThere is a disconnect between the pace of change that is needed to address the climate crisis and the speed at which governments are currently moving.This was a recurring theme at the recent FOOTPRINT+ event, where experts from around the world gathered to discuss the latest developments in sustainability.While there was a general sense of optimism about the progress that is being made, there was also a growing sense of frustration at the lack of energy and action at a local and central government levels. This disconnect is likely to continue unless there is a radical shift in the way that governments operate. Only by working together can we hope to address the climate crisis in a meaningful way.John will discuss his thoughts on the issue, the solutions he believes should be implemented to expedite the situation, and the statement he made in an article:We have had successive governments not investing in retrofits (or saying they are, then pulling the funding!). The UK's Housing stock is old, poorly insulated and draughty, at Cityzen we have been designing retrofits for houses and working with others on retrofit schemes (which were government backed) and reporting on how buildings can be retrofitted for over 10 years, we also have done 100s of surveys showing what buildings are insulated with or typically not and how they can be improved.Discover more on the full Constructive Voices Episode 42 page.Worldwide top construction podcast recognitionAs we release this episode we are delighted to announce that we have been included in the world's most important list of Feedspot best construction podcasts.Read more about this here over at Constructive Voices News.

Nick Drnaso, acclaimed author of Sabrina, is back with Acting Class, his third book on Drawn & Quarterly. A tapestry of disconnect, distrust, and manipulation, Acting Class brings together 10 strangers under the tutelage of John Smith, a mysterious and morally questionable leader. The group of social misfits and restless searchers have one thing in common: They are all out of step with their surroundings and desperate for a change.With mounting unease, the class sinks deeper into Smith's lessons, even as he demands increasing devotion. When the line between real life and imagination begins to blur, the group's fears and desires are laid bare. Exploring the tension between who we are and how we present, Drnaso cracks open his characters' masks and takes us through an unsettling American journey.Like Sabrina—the first graphic novel short-listed for the Man Booker Prize—Drnaso's latest offering is an extremely sharp study of our everyday existence and how we live. His minimalist comic-drawing style is nevertheless awash in a cinematic haze of melancholy and the color palette is hued in a realism that is uniquely his.  A friend handed me Sabrina, several years ago, knowing I was somewhat of an outsider in the realm of underground comic culture, telling me, “You will love the book in the same way you love certain novels.” And he was right.While Drnaso is revered all over the world for his bleak honestness and sly, dark humor, he grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. Although we are of different generations, the subtlety of his style is familiar to me as a fellow Midwesterner and Chicagoan.Notably, this is Big Table's first episode centered around a graphic novel. It's certainly a change from our focus on nonfiction books, but Drnaso's storytelling pulls so effortlessly from real life that one feels his characters are meta comics versions of people encountered in our everyday lives.Here's my conversation with Nick Drnaso discussing his new book, Acting Class.Music by Japan

Borag Thungg, Whatnauts! Time for Drokk!! Judge Dredd The Complete Case Files Vol. 38 arrives to fire its autocannons, catching Graeme McMillan and Jeff Lester in it sights! Sure, there are stories written by Alan Grant, John Smith, and Gordon Rennie, but somehow once again it is John Wagner who manages to do amazing things with the Lawman of Mega-City One, be that the done-in-one wonders of S.A.M., The Good Man, or A Finger of Suspicion, or the more sustained stories Shakedown, Cincinnati, or the superlative Brothers of The Blood, aided and abetted by brilliant work from Carlos Ezquerra, Jim Murray, Cam Kennedy, John Burns, Charlie Adlard, Cliff Robinson and more!
