Re: “Panic at the Disco

I saw it the day before yesterday. Yeah, there's not much of a story here, it's just Gaspar Noe documenting a pretty horrifying SITUATION.

The three main LSD rules I keep reminding myself of:
1: If you're planning to drop acid, do your research ahead of time.
2: If you DO drop acid, remember never to put yourself in a situation you can't get out of.
3: Dosing someone without his or her knowledge is one of the cruelest things anyone can do.

This movie wasn't perfect. There are some logistical issues here, like, HOW did these young people get to the school building? And why would they want to be there in the middle of a raging snowstorm? Who organized this rehearsal? Who videotaped the dancers beforehand?

I'll suspend my disbelief. Gaspar Noe always has something to say, so I'll put aside the logistical qualms here. By the end of the film I was emotionally exhausted and pretty damned speechless.

Re: “Acrylic Pour Painting

Jesica is an awesome teacher!! Her classes are an experience you will want to repeat, as I have, many times!! We are so lucky to have Jesica's talent made available to us here in Bend, providing the quality of such unique and inspiring classes, in the cozy basement of one of the original houses in town! On the corner of Revere and 8th Ave., Carelton Manor is now inhabited by a very talented artist, Jesica Carleton!

Re: “Lights Out on Lighting Efficiency?

The RoHS standards in the electronics industry have been in place for years and lead is no longer used. The amount of other substances is so low and so well bound up with compounds that it does not need to be considered as hazardous waste; even California doesn't consider LED bulbs to be.

Re: “Turkey Vultures are Back Again

@anonymous user above; I only spent about five minutes during my lunch googling this, but I was able to find this scholarly reference: https://www.jstor.org/stable/3781244?seq=1…

It shows that in 1973 patagial tags for red-tailed hawks weighed 4 grams, and other birds' patagial tags had weights and sizes proportionate to their body sizes. I would be surprised if the weight had gone up with our advances in material science over the past several decades. Another quick google search shows the low range for red-tailed hawk adult weight at 690 grams. This means that the patagial tag is approximately 0.5% of the bird's body weight.

I'm not specifically aware of how much Jim Anderson weighs, but a 70 lb tag weight would put his weight at 14,000 lbs if the same proportion was maintained. Hopefully this shows just how ridiculous an exaggeration you're making here.

Another quick google: "Ethics of patagial tags". This string will return almost 160 scholarly articles considering various impacts of patagial tags specifically on various aspects of bird behavior and health, and some will include cost-benefit analysis of those impacts versus conservation benefits for the species. Different search strings would likely bring even more results. We cannot fix a problem we don't understand. Period.

Your comment assumes scientist blindly chase data at the expense of the health of the species they are researching. Frankly it is insulting to those who have dedicated their lives to conservation efforts.

Re: “The Outfitter Bar at Seventh Mountain Resort

Do not make the trip up there if youre a Bend local! Not enough staff, mediocre food (at a high price), the bill isnt itemized so we couldnt see what items we were charged for (we were overcharged), and there were multiple mistakes on the order (wait staff didnt care). They are clearly only interested in serving people on vacation who are stuck up there with no other opinions.

Re: “No Charges for Shooter in Jack in the Box Shooting

Lies. They took 8 bullets out of him and all from the back side because he was walking away. No knife was ever found. If that were true, he would have gone to right back to prison since he was on parole.
He was shot by Garris who is an undercover hit man for CODE.

Re: “Calls to Action on Race

Bonita: Thanks for reading. FYI, it's common practice for news organizations to use an acronym for agencies upon second reference. You'll note that Oregon Department of Education is used in the very first paragraph, and then shortened to ODE in subsequent references. And while you're correct in finding two typos in the story (which have now been corrected online), two typographical errors in a piece of this length, which required extensive research, fact-checking and interviewing, hardly warrant not paying a journalist for the work. If readers want stories that matter, they should recognize that the people who wrote them will get paid.
Michael: Thanks for the work you did to highlight the Town Hall, and I'm only sorry that we didn't include info on that rebroadcast in our print edition.
Amy: The angle of the teacher's union is one area we didn't cover in this piece, but seems like a good follow up. Thanks for that info!

Re: “Calls to Action on Race

Bravo to The Source for this story! Oregons sordid history of racial discrimination has put our state way behind on these issues. I have intervened with students to educate in incidents time and time. The bubble of Bend hasnt necessarily given the majority of kids an opportunity to encounter these issues on a large scale. Luckily, our students are starting to stand up for each other better than ever, as their generation is far more woke than ours.

The teachers union has been active in offering equity training in Oregon and BLPS has started some work of their own. Its time to ensure this important professional development is available to all staff! Its also time to hire faculty who reflect our growing diversity.

Re: “The Mean Streets of Winter

Thanks for this information! It is very helpful.
I'm not sure "resides" is the proper word here: "Once the snow storm resides...". Maybe "subsides"?
