ucdavis used to have all kinds of great stuff.  later, when my brother was their IT guy, it seemed that they were not doing as much.  maybe there just aren't as many people interested in the rural studied kind of thing?

glad to hear that they are doing bees.  that, at least, ought to bring in some money for them.  CA is such a big produce producer.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.
