We never liked Styrofoam containers! Paper and cardboard cups, and containers at least deteriorateRead More with time, while Styrofoam lasts for decades! Enforcement of law by police for littering would also help diminish the environmental pollution on our fields and roadways as well! Illinois would be wise to pass legislation which would begin a returnable deposit on bottles, cans, and containers!

I have found if you have the right stuff for sale it doesn't matter what day of the week you haveRead More the sale......its how well you advertise, place signs that you pick up each day at the end of the sale. We've done quite well in a child moving out and then downsizing. You don't expect to sell $100 + items unless you advertise them on craigslist first.

I like going out to yard sales more than holding them although we do at least twice a year. MyRead More boyfriend is great at finding deals (more expensive items) and then flipping them, that's pretty awesome! I enjoy the early mornings out together, coffee, meeting new people and sometimes coming across something really cool, like my angel bell. I've never heard of bookoo.com Stephanie P, gonna look into that for selling : ) thanks!

Come on people get a grip! The product is NOT MADE FOR CONSUMPTION, even though the article seems toRead More have confused most of you. It’s just a healthier alternative for children, free of toxins.

Don't know about this BRAND - but health food stores sell coconut butter, which is very tasty onRead More toast. Some of you "commenters" need to check facts...

Interesting topic, but I would love more detail in this article. For example, I'm assuming that theRead More "Friday" in question is July 5th? Also, is there a place and time for the "Free Bag Friday" or simply an email on ANY day? Do we need to include our mailing address in our email to yet unnamed "rmelia"? Thanks!

Here's a message from Rachel Melia of the San Mateo County Health System to answer your questions,Read More Elissa: "Because of the story last week's Free Bag Friday was incredibly successful. We have been running Free Bag Fridays most Friday's. Generally we just honor requests through Friday (or sometimes those that come in late on Saturday morning). In this case since it looks like people saw the Patch story throughout the weekend we are honoring requests through Monday morning. I am letting everyone that emailed after Monday morning know that they can go to our Facebook Page www.facebook.com/smchealth and look out for upcoming Free Bag Fridays. Moving forward, we will be doing these at least once a month, and sometimes up to every week. You can direct anyone that asks about Free Bag Fridays to our Facebook Page."

I wish Patch was more timely. I read about Free Bag Friday (which was Friday, June 28th) after itRead More was posted on June 30th!! By the time I requested my bag it was too late. This is NOT the first time something has been posted AFTER it happened!

Scientists to test Malibu Kelp for Fukushima radiation MALIBU — In California, kelp is atRead More once admired for its underwater beauty, grumbled over as a beach obstacle and served up on dinner plates. Now it is being used in the name of science. Researchers will visit Malibu next month to test local kelp as part of a West Coast-wide effort to determine the levels of residual radiation released in 2011 when tsunamis damaged the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan. “Whatever is in the sea water will be magnified in the kelp,” says Steven Manley, a biology professor at Cal State Long Beach. A research team led by UCLA ecologist Peggy Fong will take 15-pound samples at locations off Escondido Beach and a second site near County Line Beach sometime between Feb. 24 and March 5. More than 20 labs and universities will take place in the effort, called Kelp Watch 2014, testing 35 sites from Alaska to Baja. Found up and down the coast, this canopy-forming kelp acts like a sponge and absorbs most of what is in the water. The kelp serves essentially as a natural dosimeter, which means it measures an absorbed dose of radiation. Earlier this month, government officials said trace elements of radiation from the Fukushima disaster did not endanger California beachgoers. “There is no public health risk at California beaches due to radioactivity related to events at Fukushima,” the California Department of Public Health said in a statement. One of the main reasons for the study is to “let the public know what’s there,” Manley said. He’s “pretty sure” researchers will find radiation in the kelp samples, however, he anticipates a very low amount because the radiation most likely has been diluted. The kelp will be dried out, ground down and inspected for radiation by scientists from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The series of tests is the first of three efforts planned this year by scientists to monitor radiation levels on the West Coast. Results from the research are expected to be available on a website by March. On March 11, 2011, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck off the coast of Japan, resulting in casualties of around 20,000 and decimating cities. It also triggered a series of tsunamis that damaged the Fukushima Daiichi power plant and sent radiation leaks into the ocean. Studies show that radionuclides from the plant continue to leak into the sea, according to the Los Angeles Times, but experts say the radiation quickly dilutes in the water. Professor Manley has been getting calls from surfers and others asking if it’s safe to swim and surf. Last week, visitors to Malibu beaches indicated they were also keen to find out what the research yields. One surfer said he was aware of the radiation reports, but would not let it affect his time in the ocean. “This is not a good development but we will still go strong as surfers,” he said. - See more at: http://smdp.com/scientists-to-test-malibu-kelp-for-fukushima-radiation/131611#sthash.VvGiQpFz.dpuf
