CA-new hotline to rat out neighbors' wasting water.,
Here's a crazy idea...water intensive agriculture doesn't mesh well with semi-arid climates.
California's water budget is skewed heavily toward agriculture. The conventional estimate is that 80 percent of the water used in California flows into the state's multi-billion-dollar agricultural sector.
The 20 percent left for urban use is split between homes, businesses, and government.
About 6 percent of the state's water is consumed by industries, commercial operations, and governments. About 14 percent is poured into bathtubs, toilets, and washing machines or sprayed over residential lawns.

US Population age 20 to 29,
Bellingham Bill says
Future is, uh, interesting:
Had I et my Wheaties this morning I'd probably understand what you are getting at. I did not. I see a 6% increase in the 20-29 population over a 20 year period. Not growing fast enough? What am I missing?

Ground zero for dead children,
To be utterly clear, vaccination of newborns for hepatitis B saves lives. This is not some model, made up by a conspiracy of researchers seeking federal dollars. This is reality.
I think the issue in question here is how many more lives it saves compared to vaccinating at age 14 instead. My understanding is that the medical community pushes the hep-b vaccine on young children not because they are at risk of exposure while young, but because they are at risk of not ever getting vaccinated and therefore at risk later in life. On average it's a good policy.
