Hi, Ted + all. Online search for HeatSync Labs in AZ. It is AZ's first hackerspace... about 3 years old, I believe.
Jacob is super-friendly, and could help you to organize this space!
We need to be concerned about our hearing. BART is negligent, and I wonder how many rider-patrons have suffered hearing impairment or loss? Please consider this petition, in addition to your 24 Hour BART wishes... neighborland.com/ideas/oak-bar...
"Can you hear me?!" BART should provide ear plugs to patron riders of all ages, in order to prevent untimely hearing loss. Unreasonably loud BART train cars inevitably cause patron hearing loss, as they scrape along bent tracks. Patrons are currently paying a minimum of $1.75 USD per one-way trip. BART fare should include one (1) pair of ear...
Yes, the idea behind BART providing patrons with [inexpensive] earplugs is to protect our ears until BART can figure out how to make their trains/tracks quieter.
I'm not sure of the numbers of Oakland golf courses. In my research, I talked to reporters and professional golf organizations. There is not even a single office that tracks this information.
Being from AZ, this idea was birthed there after I saw local golf courses in ruin from underfunding.
While we are planting trees, we might ban and prevent future usage of neurotoxic insecticide chemicals that poison water aquifers. Also, to be efficient, when we are doing earth planting work, we should consider trans/planting "bee friendly" varieties that will help pollinators to overcome their Colony Collapse Disorder challenges. This would give youth the opportunity to learn about the insects (bees!) that are responsible for pollinating our major food sources like fruits, vegetables, nuts, and spices.
