News and Events, Questions and Answers

First Tropical Storm Of The 2012 Eastern North Pacific Hurricane Season - Aletta is only the third classified tropical cyclone to form before the official start of the east Pacific hurricane season since 1971. As of 8am PDT Tuesday, the storm's center was located over 850 miles south of Cabo San Lucas, with top winds at 40 mph. Aletta is forecast to continue moving west, with some slight strengthening through Wednesday morning then dissipate later this week or over the weekend.

Last week, Meteorologists at NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) announced that the "La Niña" conditions of cooler-than-normal sea temperatures over the last two years in the eastern Pacific basin have subsided, and that temperatures have warmed. La Niña conditions contributed to mild 2011 US weather in late February and March, and a relatively mild winter. Temperature conditions are now what is called "Enso-Neutral," meaning we're in between La Niña and El Niño cycles. NOAA forecasts neutral sea temperatures to continue through September, although some computer models forecast an El Niño condition could form by late summer with warmer-than-normal sea temperatures. La Niña conditions are not expected to develop again in the near future.

Current predictions are for fewer tropical storms and hurricanes in 2012 than in 2011. Names for 2012 Eastern Pacific storms are: Aletta, Bud, Carlotta, Daniel, Emilia, Fabio, Gilma, Hector, Ileana, John, Kristy, Lane, Miriam, Norman, Olivia, Paul, Rosa, Sergio, Tara, Vicente, Willa, Xavier, Yolanda, and Zeke. - www.nhc.noaa.gov/graphics_ep1.shtml?5-daynl#contents, Baja California Sur

Garbage Burning - In response to the article about the burning of garbage in neighborhoods, all the garbage that gets taken to the dump, plastics, everything, gets burned, creating a mass toxic cloud when that is happening. Ideally, we'd all be recycling. In the meantime, small amounts of yard waste and non-toxic paper materials seem to be healthier in small doses rather than the mega dose caused by the dump. just a thought. - Name Withheld By Request

Guidance Needed - In San Jose del Cabo, we are very unhappy with our current satellite-tv arrangement. This is what we want: Reliable service at an affordable price; a broad selection of mainstream networks, from NBC and Fox to CNN and ESPN; English-language stations; and news coming out of United States stations, whether it be Los Angeles, New York, Chicago or some other mainland city; and an opportunity to put the service and the payments on hold while we are back in the States for a six-month stretch. We don't necessarily need HBO, and we've had enough hockey, thank you. Advice appreciated. - Mike Dunne, mikedunne [- at -] winegigs.com, San Jose Del Cabo

Is There A Doctor In The House? - The current edition of the Gringo Gazette reveals: "Baja California Sur has the highest level of obesity in Mexico and 70% of those fatties suffer from metabolic syndrome diseases." "Manuel Rangel is the state coordinator for the Blue Circle International Diabetes foundation. He is working with Social Security and businesses trying to resolve the problem. " "He reported that after studies of workers in the salt mines in Guerrero Negro, he found that 85% of the workers had metabolic syndrome disease, and/or diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol. This includes workers under the age of 18 as well." Gringo Gazette (page 13), May 14th, 2012

Groups of US doctors and fitness experts have developed programs to resolve these issues, quickly, painlessly, lifelong: Farms 2 Forks http://farms2forks.org, Dr. McDougall's Health and Medical Center http://www.drmcdougall.com/; PCRM, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine http://pcrm.org. Got an idea how to get the doctors into the house? Go for it! - Cheryl Hugle, allinharmony [- at -] gmail.com

Stop the Sting of a Stingray - Well, I finally had a chance to test the Benadryl spray in a stingray hit. A friend was down in the South Bay and got hit. He came up to my place because he was told I have the spray that could help. His foot had the cut and he was in severe pain. He had significant redness and swelling about 3 inches square and puffed up about ¼ inch. We sprayed the area and, in about 3-4 minutes, he said it was amazing: it was down to 10% of the pain and, in 15 minutes when I asked, he said if I hadn’t asked, he would not have remembered he got hit. His swelling and redness were also gone in 30 minutes.

And, once again, I used this remedy on a 4-year-old boy who, a week ago, got hit by a jelly fish. He was crying and, in about 2 minutes, he was fine. Since he does not speak English, gave me the universal thumbs up. It has also helped me recover from ant bites and spider bites. I have pictures depicting what it looks like at www.la-ventana.info, as well as a link where to buy it (look under “emergency like medical”). - Dean DeVolpi, dean [- at -] la-ventana.com, www.la-ventana.info, La Paz

Tennis Court? - Looking for a tennis court I can use 1x/week or so to play with my 12 year old son. I'm in Pescadero, but will drive north or south. ashleyself [- at -] hughes.net

Annular Eclipse Of The Sun – China To Texas - If you’re at the right place in the western United States, you can watch an annular – or ring – eclipse of the sun. It will be the first annular eclipse to take place in the mainland United States since May 10, 1994, and the next one won’t come until October 14, 2023. An annular eclipse happens whenever the new moon swings directly in front of the sun, blocking out all but the outer portion of the solar disk from view. This kind of eclipse presents an apparent ring of fire – really, the outer edge of the sun – around the moon in the daytime sky at mid-eclipse. - More Info: www.earthsky.org/astronomy-essentials/2012-annular-eclipse-of-the-sun-china-to-texas-in-may

Jill Casty's Show At La Encantada, La Paz - Thank you to all who were able to come to the opening of my show last Saturday evening. It was a wonderful opening with a tremendous presentation by Dana from Gallery Pez Gordo in Palmilla and Lila Magallon of La Encantada. And a very good turnout. To all who weren’t able to make the opening night – the show will be at La Encantada in La Paz until mid-May. I’ll be happy to meet you there if you like, or go and see it on your own and be in touch.

Lila and friends did a beautiful job of hanging my work. The glass and metal sculptures, the paintings and the pendants. It’s wonderful to see all the work so well displayed and in such a lovely setting. La Encantada is open every evening from 5 pm - ? The garden is lovely and a most congenial place to sit, wine, dine, visit, relax etc.

There’s a wonderful young chef, Jose Luis, who makes snacks and dinner every evening. On Wednesdays, they have a special – with chef Andrea from Argentina – of Argentinian grilled meats cooked on the Bar-b-que. On Friday and Saturday evenings there’s music as well. La Encantada is on Belisario Dominguez between 5 de Mayo and Constitucion in La Paz. - Jill Casty, jillcastyglassart [- at -] gmail.com, www.jillcastyglassart.com, 612-167-2674, United States
