"Proclamation
Declaring the 2nd Monday in October Indigenous Peoples’ Day in Lake County

WHEREAS, the area now known as Lake County has been home to people for greater than 12,000 years, and the richly diverse cultures of the seven Tribal Nations indigenous to Lake County, Middletown Rancheria of Pomo Indians of California, Koi Nation of Northern California, Big Valley Band of Pomo Indians, Scotts Valley Band of Pomo Indians, Habematolel Pomo of Upper Lake, Robinson Rancheria of Pomo Indians of California and Elem Indian Colony, have informed every aspect of our community’s history; and

WHEREAS, policies and practices of the United States and earlier colonial governments deprived Indigenous People in the State of California and Lake County, specifically, of land-holdings, liberty, even life, itself; and

WHEREAS, the County of Lake is committed to protecting rights of Tribal organizations and institutions to strengthen their own communities; and

WHEREAS, Indigenous Peoples’ Day was first proposed to the United Nations more than forty years ago; and

WHEREAS, in January 2019, Lake proudly became the first United States County with two concurrently-seated American Indian Supervisors; and

WHEREAS, because of our historic position, we have a responsibility to lead in honoring and celebrating the legacy of all of America’s Indigenous Peoples, and particularly those indigenous to Lake County.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT PROCLAIMED that the Lake County Board of Supervisors declares each 2nd Monday in October Indigenous Peoples’ Day in Lake County.

PASSED AND ADOPTED this 8th day of October, 2019."
'The law limits rent increases to 5% each year plus inflation until Jan. 1, 2030. It bans landlords from evicting people for no reason, meaning they could not kick people out so they can raise the rent for a new tenant. And while the law doesn’t take effect until Jan. 1, it would apply to rent increases on or after March 15, 2019, to prevent landlords from raising rents just before the caps go into place.'

“The universe is, instant by instant, recreated anew. There is in truth no
past, only a memory of the past. Blink your eyes, and the world you see
next did not exist when you closed them. Therefore, the only appropriate
state of the mind is surprise. The only appropriate state of the heart is
joy. The sky you see now, you have never seen before. The perfect moment
is now. Be glad of it.”

—Terry Pratchett
"Precious people with the most severe cases of poorly understood chronic illnesses are treated like trash. I’m fed up with it. Why is it that those who have been dealt the most suffering on this planet are the ones with the least support? I’m sick of hearing stories of heartless and arrogant doctors, cruel and dismissive spouses, friends who label them as crazy and leave them all alone at their most vulnerable. 

People are facing eviction and homelessness because they are too ill to provide for themselves and even social services is doing nothing. People are starving (yes, literally) because they are too ill to feed themselves and there is NOBODY there. Doctors would rather lock people up in psych wards than admit they might not know everything there is to know. This cannot be real. Is the world really this cruel? 

Yes. Yes it is.

Does anyone know what sacrificial love is?! I’ll tell you what it’s not. It’s not showing up only when it’s convenient. It’s not helping only those who can return the favor. It’s not labeling someone as a “hypochondriac” so you can excuse yourself and stop caring when they cry for help.

Let me tell you something…
Suppose they are crazy?

Suppose they are hypochondriacs? Why would that absolve you of the responsibility to help a fellow human being God has placed in your life? If they were hypochondriacs, they’d probably need your help even more — because I cannot even begin imagine trauma that could motivate someone to fake something like this. It would have to be something so extremely bizarre and indescribably awful it would warrant all the more tenderness and grace."
Following the 2017 Tubbs fire that whipped through the Santa Rosa area, researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, working with the San Francisco Firefighters Cancer Prevention Foundation, analyzed blood and urine samples of about 150 firefighters. They found that in their blood many had elevated levels of mercury, as well as perfluoroalkyl substances, human-made chemicals known as PFAS, which have been linked to cancer.

Researchers said that the chemicals may have come off the buildings, or even the firefighters’ gear. PFAS, an increasingly controversial class of chemicals that are used as fire retardants, are often present in firefighter uniforms.

The exposure is compounded by dangers that firefighters have faced for years.

‘In Crown Heights, there was a Jew, Yankel, who owned a bakery. He survived the camps. He once said, “You know why it is that I’m alive today? I was a kid, just a teenager at the time. We were on the train, in a boxcar, being taken to Auschwitz. Night came and it was freezing, deathly cold, in that boxcar. The Germans would leave the cars on the side of the tracks overnight, sometimes for days on end without any food, and of course, no blankets to keep us warm,” he said. “Sitting next to me was an older Jew – this beloved elderly Jew - from my hometown I recognized, but I had never seen him like this. He was shivering from head to toe, and looked terrible. So I wrapped my arms around him and began rubbing him, to warm him up. I rubbed his arms, his legs, his face, his neck. I begged him to hang on. All night long; I kept the man warm this way. I was tired, I was freezing cold myself, my fingers were numb, but I didn’t stop rubbing the heat on to this man’s body. Hours and hours went by this way. Finally, night passed, morning came, and the sun began to shine. There was some warmth in the cabin, and then I looked around the car to see some of the other Jews in the car. To my horror, all I could see were frozen bodies, and all I could hear was a deathly silence.

Nobody else in that cabin made it through the night – they died from the frost. Only two people survived: the old man and me… The old man survived because somebody kept him
warm; I survived because I was warming somebody else…”

Let me tell you the secret of Judaism. When you warm other people’s hearts, you remain warm yourself. When you seek to support, encourage and inspire others; then you discover support, encouragement and inspiration in your own life as well. That, my friends, is “Judaism 101”.’

"When you talk about Revolution please remember that millions of multiply marginalised Disabled people will continue to need care, medicine, and power in order to live.

If you leave Disabled people out of your thoughts and plans, you condemn us to death."
Wasn't sure if this was appropriate to put in Air Quality Owl, so i'm gonna leave it here...
