Hi all! A big hello to all of you wonderful TDC readers! I’m Heidi and it is such a blessing to be visiting here from my blog, Brave Wild and Free (formerly My Beautiful Mess). I have adored Rayan’s eclectic style and eye for design for such a long time - not to mention that I got to meet her adorable self in person AND eat Mexican food with her, which made me love her all the more! For those of you who don’t know me (most of you), let me introduce myself.  I’m a wife and a mom (of three) from the Pacific Northwest.  I love coffee, Toms, books and solitude.   I have always enjoyed the peacefulness of the great outdoors – and here in the northwest it is GREAT.  But, if I’m honest, I don’t love the grittiness of the outdoors.

UC Davis 'whistleblower' wins $730,000 verdict

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A jury has awarded a $730,000 verdict to a whistleblower who reported on an unethical pain management study on prison inmates by researchers at the University of California, Davis.

Janet Keyzer, a former UC Davis administrative nurse, claimed in a lawsuit that her career was ruined when she raised questions about whether the research project on physically and mentally disabled inmates at San Quentin Prison had obtained consent from its subjects.

The Sacramento Bee reports the Superior Court jury's decision came down late Monday in favor of the 59-year-old Keyzer. She had worked for the university's Center for Healthcare Policy and Research for more than nine years at the time of her termination in 2007.

UC Davis spokesman Andy Fell tells the newspaper that university attorneys are "reviewing the verdict and considering what to do next."

Officials: No link between aerial spraying and UC Davis fish kill


DAVIS, CALIF - Dead fish started floating to the surface in the UC Davis Arboretum waterway following two nights of aerial pesticide spraying, but campus officials call the mosquito treatment a coincidence and not a cause.

"We've actually had fish kills before and it's part of the natural cycle," said assistant arboretum director Andrew Fulks, who started hearing concerns about the dying fish on Sunday.

Signs posted on campus gave advance notice of the spraying on Wednesday and Thursday nights, which may have led some to assume a connection to the fish kill.
