I am heading to campus in few minutes to continue writing my exam.
I got distracted today by the the Mueller testimony. Besides going into detail. It is good to be back to what seriousness of service is.
I also want to write something that came to mind after sleeping yesterday with the full window open. I live in a studio, so the window size is all the wall. I left it open because as a precaution of the air quality after burning the pan the whole day. I also wanted that the air recirculates inside. Over the last two years occurred destructive fires in the region, such as Tubbs fire in October 2017, and camp Fire in November 2018. We do not what might happen this year, but we need to be cautious. In addition to extreme solidarity with all the people at the places who got affected, the air quality also becomes bad all over the area. Somehow I did not thought in the past about how the homeless people, i.e. in Berkeley, face these air quality. While I use to live in a place one block from campus, and during about a week, in November 2017, that the air quality got bad, we were advised to stay at home, or to avoid outdoors activities. How the homeless people can be help in those situations?
While my role with watershed management and planning might have a preventing action on managing those wildfires, which would help to control things. In the case of emergency, are places to give a the homeless a place of shelter? How also the homeless people react to those situations? Are they willing to receive some help?
