“We’ve got to keep our eye on the future,” Mr. Dan Harris profoundly uttered while delivering the keynote at a meeting of business leaders in the San Diego area. “The growth of Southern California depends on keeping our young people here, giving them desirable work opportunities, and making sure they don’t go away to Denver or Austin or Atlanta or Seattle. We’ve got to keep our young, creative class here, in San Diego and L.A., and all parts in between. They are the lifeblood of our economy.” When Mr. Harris gave this speech in 2003 he was 72 years old. Read the rest »

The waters off the coast of Southern California have mesmerized people of all ages for hundreds of years. Many have journeyed a lifetime just to get a glimpse of the beautiful, pacifying blue sea. And you may one day feel that desire to make your own discoveries on the Pacific Ocean. Like Balboa 500 years before you, you may find yourself gathering a small band of trusted friends, packing provisions such as cold beverages and sandwiches, and perhaps even enlisting a native guide or a pack of trusty dogs for your journey.

The recent death of a 31-year-old San Diego man in a motorcycle crash has brought attention to the practice known as lane splitting. In this particular instance, the motorcyclist was driving in between lanes of traffic when he collided with the back of an SUV. The impact caused him to veer into the center divider, and he was thrown into oncoming traffic.
This tragedy is just one example of the potential risks involved with lane splitting, which is defined as the act of a two-wheel vehicle passing other vehicles by riding between them along a lane line. Motorcyclists might do this while traffic is completely stopped at a light, during rush hour, or when traffic is moving, often at speeds exceeding 65 mph—like our motorcyclist above. Read the rest »
