Farmer John runs an advertisement for apple pickers, interviews applicants, and selects the fifty people he thinks best. He tells the fifty people that they will be paid a nickel for each apple they pick; the top five pickers the first week will be named supervisors; any caught sleeping on the job, along with the five who pick the least, will be fired and replaced. The fifty people agree to this contract.

Workout mirrors can be downright creepy. Some people with odd narcissistic streaks may enjoy watching themselves contort and sweat while “Let’s Get Physical” blares through overhead speakers, but most people probably do not. Furthermore, mirrors aren’t exactly a precise way to gauge your workout moves you often have to angle your head uncomfortably to try to catch a glimpse of your form.

In the last decade, I have watched Ivy City dwindle from a working class area filled with promise to a poverty stricken community plagued by drugs and prostitution.

For the first time, and someone in Germany thought it would be a good idea for their squad to pair off musically with an American act. Maybe David Hasselhoff’s line was busy, because the Germans wound up with the way past their expiry date Village People, 16 years removed from their Macho Man glory. The video result is a sublime mess, shot in a bland space that looks like a Holiday Inn conference room.

In California, Senate Bill 1372, introduced by state senators Mark DeSaulnier and Loni Hancock, lets the state raise the corporate tax rate, currently 8.84 percent, to as high as 13 percent for companies whose highest paid executives earn more than 100 times what their typical employees earn. Companies with a CEO to typical worker pay ratio below 100 to 1 would get a tax cut, down to as low as 7 percent.

Is there evidence in the photosWe all can still visualize the 1976 Viking photo of Mars that seems to have captured a very unique part of the Martian surface called Sedonia. The image was the famous Sphinx face. But why is it that only a handful of people seem to recall the 1968 Apollo 8 footage of the moon’s lunar surface that seems to show an active smokestack poking out from the dusty ground and reaching high into the sky? People seem to expect to find wild things on the planet Mars but not so much for our moon..
