The Public Utilities Commission of Nevada voted unanimously to allow a small portion of northern Nevada residents to sign up for the attractive rates over the next three years. It's a modest but promising step forward after months of acrimonious debate that pit rooftop solar companies against traditional utilities.

  • Our Imperiled Democracy
    Ambitious national political leaders invariably face a problem: how to get things done in the face of competing interests and institutional rules. Democratic leaders generally learn how to accommodate those interests, respect the rules, and understand that accountability is the essence of democracy. They work within the system because for all its flaws, the system works.
  • Smile Wider
    I notice smiles. It is just a thing I do. I’ve done it all my life. But bigger and better smiles became easier for me to show ever since I was in my last years of being a teenager when I had my first “real” job with benefits and went into a dentist and got my very less than desirable teeth fixed. That was a big thing for me, having a showable smile. 
  • Life with Students
    The highlight of my classroom observations is interacting with students – asking questions, critiquing answers, and just generally enjoying myself. Some kids recognize me, smile, and are ready for my interrogations. Others try to avoid eye contact in the hope that I will stay away which I translate to an urgent call for a quick chat. They soon realize that I am there to learn and that requires questions and conversations.
