Would you sign a life contract?
I had a conversation with a friend about getting older, quality of life, and how baby boomers are continuing to try to re-invent everything. Out of this conversation came a great "What If," which I want to explore and ask you what you would do? What if you could sign what I'm calling a "life contract," in which you were guaranteed a particular life span with good health until the end of that contract? So, More»

    Planning your health future (Ted Adams)
    When I stop to count my many blessings, and I do it more often as I get older, I thank whatever controlling entities there may be that I live at a time when we have advanced as far as we have medically. I most likely would not have achieved my first decade if I had been born 50 years earlier. More»

    Experts reject effort to name great white as endangered
    "The petition to list the Northeastern Pacific population of white shark as threatened or endangered is not warranted," concluded Charlton H. Bonham, director of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (formerly Fish and Game). A similar petition to list the great white shark under the federal Endangered Species Act was shot down a few months ago. In both cases, More»

    GROWING CONCERNS: Celebrate Public Gardens Appreciation Month in May
    In the early 1900s, floraphiles traveled from the East Coast via rail just to witness the horticultural wonders of Santa Barbara County. One-hundred-odd years later, with the expansion of National Public Gardens Day into a monthlong celebration, the South Coast is on track to renew its reputation as the garden capital of the world. First declared in 2009, National Public Gardens Day always falls on the Friday before Mother's Day, More»

    Hanley still holds court after UCLA
    Matt Hanley, son of volleyball royalty, was the man who would be king. And then his reign on the UCLA court where his mother had once ruled came to a sudden and unceremonious end. He'll be facing those same Bruins tonight at Rob Gym, trying to help UCSB build its own dynasty two years later. More»

    Nothing beats paper and pen
    One of the biggest areas of client interest for the coaching side of my business revolves around to-do lists. What's the big deal? You find your medium (digital or paper are your choices) and write down what's on your brain. Voila! To-do list is done. Right? Unfortunately not. The first part is correct: find your medium. However, what to write, when to write and where to write seem to be very perplexing for many people across all industries. More»

    Healthy Mind, Healthy Future: Our broken mental health care system
    "We're protecting civil liberties at the expense of health and safety," — Doris A. Fuller, executive director of the Treatment Advocacy Center As those of you who have read my column over the almost three years I have been writing my weekly feature are aware, I have rarely ever, actually never, ventured into the political arena, as it has always been my goal to educate and enlighten when it comes to the field of mental health, More»

    People and the environment: Use of resources
    Santa Barbara is a diverse community with an economy based to a significant extent on tourism. As such, it is similar to other tourist destination locations, such as the Hawaiian Island of Maui and Taos in New Mexico. As with these other top tourist locations, we have growing environmental concerns related to basic use of resources, such as scenery (yes, scenery is a resource), water, energy, and food, as well as waste management.

    The great clipper ships
    Clipper ships were among the fastest sailing vessels of the 19th century. Most were built in American and British shipyards, although some were produced in France and the Netherlands. Clipper ships were designed with three or more masts, a square-sail rig, and were long and very narrow for maximum speed. They were designed to carry limited bulk-freight in order to log the fastest possible passages. More»
