hose who know me know that I’m a huge cartography buff. That love really perpetuated when I was 10, when my mother bought me a DeLorme atlas of Vermont, and I became enthralled with it, thoroughly memorizing every detail I could. But what is it about maps that are so irresistible to me? Maybe because of their limitless potential, and their ability to unlock the mysteries of our world. Maps tell us how things in this world relate to one another, they take data and turn it into something tangible, something understandable, and maybe something that provokes thought or feelings. Several different types of information can be conveyed at the same time, melding several different ideas into a united idea. Lines to convey topography, more lines to convey boundaries between rock layers, towns, states and countries. More lines for faults, colors for bodies of water, forest land and types of climates. Maybe it’s because maps provide some sort of order, putting everything where it needs to be. Or just the opposite. They’ve always helped me make sense of my thoughts and ideas, and even draw ideas from things that haven’t been categorized or plotted yet.
district 3 hollyset area is becoming a nightmare. i live right up the street there are drug needles hookers trash everywhere and homeless camps set up behind vons and next to the hospital parking. the area will never be able to grow if the hospital engulfs the area with parking lots that are vacant at night which leads to people camping on the curbs and setting up a mini skid row because they know they will not be bothered. It is going from bad to worse at an alarming rate and it inhibits the growth of the area which is vital in linking silver lake los feliz and east hollywood together to potentially be a great walkable area that helps extend to sunset junction and future planned businesses along sunset. if this mini skid row is allowed to continue to grow at the rate is has in the last few months its going to be even tougher to keep safe and clean down the road. the longer we wait the worse it will get the more problems cleaning up the mess.
Dear EHNC Board Members, I live two blocks from the Vermont Triangle and urge the Board to reconsider its proposal to remove the crosswalks connecting it to Prospect Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard. If the Triangle crosswalks go away, pedestrians wanting to walk from the northwest corner of Vermont/Prospect to the southwest corner of Vermont/Hollywood will have to walk 200-300 extra feet and wait for twice as many walk signals, increasing their trip by several minutes. This inconvenience will undoubtedly encourage jaywalking, creating a safety hazard for both motorists and pedestrians. Furthermore, removing the crosswalks may not even dissuade the homeless from camping in the Triangle. And even if it did, it will not remove them as a social issue, but merely displace them to another nearby location. As a nearby resident, I regularly experience and understand the blight and potential health hazards a homeless encampment engenders, but believe there are alternatives that would be less inconvenient for the dozens if not hundreds of pedestrians that walk through the Triangle daily on their way to shop, access the Metro, and go to work. Perhaps the City could fence in the majority of the Triangle, leaving a benchless sidewalk along the Vermont Avenue side, or replace the benches and plaza with less hospitable landscaping. This is similar to what exists along the Bundy Pocket Park in West LA and while homelessness is an issue there, the limited space reduces the size of encampments that form there. Thank you very much for your time,

Dragon Ball Super episode 38 was on this week and a lot of stuff happened. Not only does it include the fight between Vegeta vs Hit, but it also revealed the true strength of the mysterious Monaka. Where to Watch Dragon Ball Super episode 38 English Subbed Vegeta is looking to be the best fighter of the tournament so far. He’s taken out Frost, Magetta and Cabba but now he faces his toughest opponent yet. Universe 6’s Hit walks to the ring and he is no pushover. At the start of this episode, Whis explains how powerful Hit really is. The man has never failed a job in his life which means he’s been able to take out everyone he’s encountered so far. This will prove to be a big problem for Vegeta. Since Hit is so powerful, Vegeta doesn’t take him very lightly. He immediately changes to the Super Saiyan Blue form and the fight is on. A small funny note is that Monaka gets scared for some reason when Vegeta transforms. We’ll talk about Monaka a little later in this review… They have a staredown with one another that lasts a bit too long for my taste. Dragon Ball Super has been going at a fast pace so it was interesting that this staredown lasted so long. Nevertheless, Vegeta goes for the first strike and misses. The thing that makes Hit so cool is just how calm and collected he is. His speed is unmatched and he hits Vegeta in the throat like it was nothing. He tells Vegeta that he should surrender, but Vegeta is not one to quit so easily. Hit attacks Vegeta’s vital points so each of his strikes is hurting Vegeta a lot. His attacks are so precise that Vegeta is unable to defend himself. We’ve never seen a fighter like this before in Dragon Ball which is cool to see. Even when Vegeta goes for a ki blast, Hit punches him to prevent him from even trying it. Goku and Piccolo are a little worried because they cannot see Hit’s attacks. Hit is moving so fast as they have never seen someone fight like this ever. Vegeta is pretty much tired and sweaty at this point. Not to mention he’s spitting out blood too. Hit ends this fight by punching him in the gut. Hit is declared the winner! Jaco says Hit disappears just before attacking which is why it was so hard for Vegeta to see where he was striking. It’s a technique where he can skip time for a short period. The next fight is Goku vs Hit. Whis knows how to beat Hit but he’s not going to tell Goku. As part of Goku’s training, Whis wants Goku to find out how to beat Hit for himself. The most shocking revelation in this Dragon Ball Super episode is that we now know how strong Monaka really is. Well, it was revealed that Monaka is not very strong at all! Whis and Beerus lied to Vegeta and Goku about Monaka in order to motivate them to get stronger. Monaka is not a strong god like he was hyped up to be. Where also learn that Hit is over 1000 years old which is very interesting. He’s much older than most of the other fighters in the tournament.
How can we regulate or prevent our neighborhoods and apartments and homes from being gassed out for blocks on end with toxic fumes from tide detergent/laundry sheets? Some shoots spew right under or next to our windows. But laundry mats can be smelled for many blocks, and people can be smelled for many feet away whose clothes are washed in this toxic, stronger stuff. We are developing allergies, watery eyes etc from this toxic stuff.
It will be nice to have a Farmers Market events on Sunday. This location ( Melrose ave & Heliotrope dr ) will be perfect for the event.
