ig and Green: Toward Sustainable Architecture in the 21st Century

What books have you read about sustainable architecture? Big & Green was the first one that I got into way back in 2004. You can still find in on Amazon from 3rd parties. The aesthetics of green design are attractive, and so are the benefits of them. Imagine what energy savings are possible.

Book review

A slick series of illustrations of sustainable design, ByA. McDonaldon May 28, 2010, 0 out of 5 stars . Mostly a book about green image, this is a sleekly designed but superficial overview of allegedly sustainable buildings. The book ironically illustrates a few alarming points about green building, mainly that sustainability is a slippery term, and that its possible to decry sustainability as a marketing tool while being basically that at the same time.
More than a century after its inception, the skyscraper has finally come of age. Though it has long been lampooned as a venal and inhospitable guzzler of resources, a revolutionary new school of skyscraper design has refashioned the idiom with buildings that are sensitive to their environments, benevolent to their occupants, and economically viable to build and maintain. Designed by some of the best-known architects in the world, these towers are as daring aesthetically as they are innovative environmentally. Big and Green is the first book to examine the sustainable skyscraper, its history, the technologies that make it possible, and its role in the future of urban development. The book examines more than 40 of the most important recent sustainable skyscrapers-including Fox & Fowle's Reuters Buildings in New York, Norman Foster's Commerzbank in Frankfurt, and MVRDV's spectacular Dutch Pavilion from Expo 2000 in Hanover-with project descriptions, photographs, and detailed drawings. Interviews with such leaders in the field as Sir Richard Rogers, William McDonough, and Kenneth Yeang are also included.

Yoga Girl's inspiring journey

Rachel Brathen is a yoga teacher and the author of the book Yoga Girl, which became a New York Times best-seller. "Yoga Girl" is also the name of Brathen's Instagram account, which had two million followers as of March 2017. This success has given her a huge platform and media influence. How did she do it? 

I discovered her blog, From the Heart, this year. In the first podcast, she tells her personal story. This is an example of someone who has lived with authenticity and found success. The story is powerful in that her success is a model for other individuals seeking to live life in a new way.   She interviews others with similar stories of finding unique ways to live life. Check out Rachel's website to get the podcast:

Rachel is offering an even more intimate look into her life and the inspiring journey she is here to share with you. Weekly episodes of storytelling and talks from Rachel (sometimes alongside special guests!) will dive into topics such as love, trust, finding balance, overcoming adversity and of course, yoga and well-being.

Sara Box's Website and Booklet, Nutrition and Fitness for Life!

Sara graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biological Anthropology and minors in Personal Fitness Instruction and Exercise and Health Science. Upon graduating she received her personal training certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and was offered her first job at Titan Sports Performance where she had been working as an intern. In 2013, Sara completed her Master of Science degree in Holistic Nutrition through Hawthorn University. In 2015, Sara with her associate Matt Anderson purchased Titan Sports Performance with the shared goal of building a community of strong, fit, and healthy individuals.

Homepage of

In 2017 Sara and I started to create a WordPress website that allows her to publish information about her nutritional programs. We wanted to keep the production costs down while providing the most useful information to potential clients.

To better understand the details of her nutrition program, I did it myself. I can not speak highly enough of Sara's skill in fitness and nutrition.

Nutritional booklet

We also created a custom booklet with information with basic nutritional information that she can give out to her clients. It includes information like tips for real food, meal planning, food preparation, and journaling. Sara is a wealth of information and these materials, the website and the booklet, are a great sampling of the knowledge gained while working with her. If you are interested in working with Sara, contact her in advance. She books up quickly!

Cline and Roning Family History Website

This site is under development and I've been collaborating with my grandfather on developing it this summer. There are two parts to this website.

  1. The first part is  the history of the Cline and Roning families.   Russel and Mabel are the main focus of this history.  The chapters form a chronology of their lives.  The stories of ancestors and the genealogy charts trace allow a glimpse of previous generations.
  2. The reflections section uses photographs to illustrate memories in the life of Marie and Richard. The includes friends and family, nature photos, Santa Barbara and more, much more.

The collection of this information started a decade ago.  The initial intent of printing a booklet became lost as the finish point could never be defined.  With modern website access there is almost no limit to the amount of information stored.  The content it can be altered at any time so this becomes a living document.

SBRC-SBRS Company Histroy

I've had the pleasure of working in this company history site, a collection of employee memories from SBRC’s / SBRS’s company history. Diane Sova collected SBRC-SBRS history with the plan to publish it in book form. The publication was interrupted by her on-going world tour.  Her compilation is an incomplete document that became a website. It needs contributions from people of all parts of the company.  They need memorable events from all. They also need organized history from former managers.

Expert from A. D. Paul,  Presented to the SBRC Management Club 20 January 1981

Back when I went to the movies they also had a serial. Every Saturday afternoon you could go for another installment. This series has been rather momentous and I presume you all remember January 20, 1981, but for a moment I would like to go back to April 1 of 1952, which was on a smaller scale a momentous day, and I would like to go up to Mission Canyon. You go up past the Mission, across Foothill past the Botanic Gardens all the way to the end. It’s known as 1500 Mission Canyon Road. There were half a dozen buildings up there. Back in the forties it was known as the Lomas Feliz Private School. On April 1 in 1952 you would have seen a Los Angeles businessman by the name of Ted Horowith running up the foothills. He was a treasurer of the Pacific Mercury Television Manufacturing Company. Not far behind him you would have seen a deputy sheriff, by the name of King. The deputy did indeed catch the businessman. What he was trying to do was serve some papers and there were some people who were observing all this, guys like Gene Peterson, Jack Lansing, Stan Buller, Jack Kuhn, probably Bill Shockensey, perhaps Tom Johnson, (he kind of came and went, one of those parttime drifting fellows) Leon Morris, whom some of you will recognize who probably knew as much about what was going on in the company as anybody. I was not a witness to this event. I heard about it in detail later.
