Altacities® ▶ Disastrophe

Image
None will deny that not a day or week seems to go by without some major news story about a natural disaster somewhere in the world.

These news and social media accounts are more than a passing interest to most, particularly to USA residents due to recent disasters in North America from coast-to-coast. Whatever the calamity, humanity is disrupted and displaced.  These topics, while not very uplifting to contemplate, have actually resulted in new definitions for these times, like:

DISASTROPHE is a recently coined term to blend "disaster" with "catastrophe" in the lexicon of disaster recovery.  What follows are a series of posts on the topic during the timeframe of two serious wildfires in California.  So serious are these fires that they have well-distracted Californians from the usual calamity on their minds, earthquakes.
DISASTER RECOVERY for common interest developments (aka homeowner associations or HOAs), indeed recovery after disaster for any homeowner or commu…

Transparent ▶ California

Image
Inspection of state government records like voter rolls county by county is a dicey matter. One would think that the most transparent practice in this regard might be the largest state, California, but that is obviously not the case.

Even though the over-arching theme of our #ALTACITIES blogs is #HOA private governance, there remain a host of other #transparency concerns for the real cities of California, details that need public inspection beyond the confines of the typical common interest development, homeowners association or HOA.

A Rich Coverup ▶ SocialCurrentSee

Monday, July 10, may well come and go without any news breaking for the #SethRich case. That would be a pity. Numerous sites on social media are attempting to keep his legacy alive with virtually no assistance from mainstream media (#MSM) or investigative authorities.



MyGovWatch blog posts have roamed the realm of a specific topic of late: the #SethRich case and an unsolved murder of a 27-year-old DNC IT staffer. The murder mystery dates from a year ago, July 10, and so little has been officially shared by real detective and police authorities.

When you follow the hashtag #SethRich, you must not skip the reader comments like the one archived above from a YT contributor Barney Quinn.  Granted, Quinn may not have any more insight into facts surrounding the #SethRich case, but he makes a va…
