The Gorilla Foundation is Sad to Announce the Passing of Our Beloved Koko

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/21/2018 10:04 AM
Woodside, CA...Koko — the gorilla known for her extraordinary mastery of sign language, and as the primary ambassador for her endangered species — passed away yesterday morning in her sleep at the age of 46. Koko touched the lives of millions as an ambassador for all gorillas and an icon for interspecies communication and empathy. She was beloved and will be deeply missed. Koko, a western lowland gorilla, was born Hanabi-ko (Japanese for “Fireworks Child”) on July 4, 1971 at the San Francisco Zoo. Dr. Francine “Penny” Patterson began working with Koko the next year, famously teaching her sign language. Dr. Patterson and Dr. Ronald Cohn moved Koko and the project to Stanford in 1974 and went on to establish The Gorilla Foundation. While at Stanford the project expanded to include a second western lowland gorilla, Michael. In 1979 Koko and The Gorilla Foundation moved to the Santa Cruz Mountains where Ndume joined them as a fellow ambassador for their species.

Supreme Court Rules Sales Tax For All

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/21/2018 09:16 AM
Washington, DC...JUSTICE KENNEDY delivered the opinion of the Court. When a consumer purchases goods or services, the consumer’s State often imposes a sales tax. This case requires the Court to determine when an out-of-state seller can be required to collect and remit that tax. All concede that taxing the sales in question here is lawful. The question is whether the out-of-state seller can be held responsible for its payment, and this turns on a proper interpretation of the Commerce Clause, U. S. Const., Art. I, §8, cl. 3.

Music in the Parks: Nathan Ignacio June 20, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Brice Station Vineyards

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/20/2018 03:03 PM
Murphys, CA...Nathan Ignacio is a rising star in California, having opened for such legendaries as BB King and Willy Watson of The Old Crow Medicine Show. Ignacio brings a modern take on the American folk revival tradition with songs that explore his sometimes hard journey through life. It's not all just melancholy; Ignacio can rock pretty hard on stage all by himself. He plays an impressive number of instruments—guitar, dulcimer, mandolin, harmonica, percussion—sometimes at the same time to build a complex sound that brings new life to old favorites like "Just the Two of Us," and steers new songs like "Tom Thumb" into the world.
