I'm a UC Davis student interested in environmental sustainability, ethical consumption, community development and many other related things. I haven't used my real name at this point in time but I plan to create an account with my real name soon.

2011-09-30 07:31:58   Welcome to the wiki! —CovertProfessor


2011-10-03 08:35:36   Glad to hear you're enjoying Davis so far! I was interested to hear about the ways in which West Village was falling short on their promises. Hopefully, they'll start to improve on those areas soon, especially in the light of feedback from people like you! —CovertProfessor


2011-10-05 05:23:15   To create a new entry, just link to it or search for the title and when you follow the link, or on the search result page, simply click "create a new page". For instance, you could follow the link Occupy Davis and create an entry under that title. Don't forget to link to it from appropriate entries so people can find it! —Evan "JabberWokky" Edwards


2011-10-05 08:33:06   Glad to hear the movement is spreading. JabberWokky pretty much explained how to create the new page — just click on the link for Occupy Davis that he made, and go from there! If you need help with editing the page, I or others will be glad to help out. —CovertProfessor


2011-10-05 19:03:14   The FB page for Occupy Davis says Friday, October 7 at 6:00pm, Davis Farmers Market. Should the wiki go with that?? There could always be a march towards the bank area.


2011-10-05 19:18:23   I was also thinking that would be a good plan. I think the thing on friday night is just a general assembly to get organised with supplies and discuss agenda. I guess suggestions will come out of that. Feel free to edit it with whatever is most current/relevant. Thanks for your help! —ConsciousConsumer


2011-10-05 19:23:34   Sure, thanks for getting the ball rolling!! —CovertProfessor


2011-10-05 19:27:42   I just tried to create the featured page but I suck at it, still figuring stuff out. —ConsciousConsumer


2011-10-05 19:28:42   Heh... no worries, you'll get it. I'll take a look and see if I can help. —CovertProfessor


2011-10-06 21:54:55   I added Occupy Davis to the Activism page! —CovertProfessor


2011-10-06 23:02:16   Nah, just the cleanup crew. :-) —CovertProfessor


2011-10-07 13:20:17   You should use your real name if you're heading up Occupy Davis. It would up your credibility tremendously. —ChristyMarsden


2011-10-15 17:15:14   Thanks for posting that Rolling Stones link —SueHjerpe


2011-10-15 22:27:31   Those costs will get passed along to the consumer one way or another. Either through higher food costs, forced gratuity or lower food quality. Thinking anything else is fantasy. —OliviaY

"A study from a Cornell University professor concluded that "consumers' assessments of the quality of service correlate weakly to the amount they tip," relying more on superficial factors such as the attractiveness of the server or the amount of the bill."


2011-10-16 19:38:06   I have been outside the country but it's irrelevant. Businesses will pass the cost on to the consumer so the servers might get a living wage, but you'll be footing the bill. Your comment made it sound like you expect the business to profit less for the benefit of servers and THAT will never happen. —OliviaY


2011-10-16 19:44:56   and who is going to enforce that? No thanks. More government is never the answer and forcing people to do good by holding a gun to their heads is counterproductive. —OliviaY


2011-10-16 21:27:49   I'm a libertarian. My views on how to fix things are shouted down so I don't bother. Food quality issues start and end with government. Corn subsidies and the subsequent need for oil because of our government supported monoculture has jacked shit up across the board. —OliviaY


2011-10-16 21:37:38   Don't be afraid of voicing your opinion. They wont get shouted down if you are respectful. I actually prefer Libertarians to Republicans. Ron Paul makes a whole lot of sense. I just don't see how the poorest get taken care of. I really want to hear some of your ideas for a better United States. I don't align myself with any parties. Have you done the political compass? —ConsciousConsumer


2011-10-18 20:12:35   I think federal minimum wage is a bad idea. At the very least it should be a state by state issue. Either way that should be the salary politicians make. I'm a big fan of that idea. —OliviaY


2011-10-24 19:52:56   Ok, I made some small fixes and did some other cleanup on the page. Glad to be able to help in this small way. If there are things the protesters need — ways to donate money or materials — that would be good to include on the page, too. —CovertProfessor


2011-10-26 15:36:08   I was wondering if you would be interested in doing an interview for an article I am writing on UC Davis' West Village. While I applaud the project I am interested in getting an interview from an especially environmentally conscious student who can talk to some of the short comings of the project. We can conduct the interview online or in person. Let me know if you are interested. —CatherineHawe


2011-12-01 15:37:24   Thanks for posting on Occupy UC Davis. I like your comment about documentary showings. I don't have a laptop but have access to a projector. I'm an alumni helping out. I think it might be better if you, as a student, could get access to a campus room with projector (much more likely to attract people to an indoor venue). If you know about copyright issues...we may have to ask permission to show some videos. Inside Job is an important one to share. I already showed Money Masters. best, Derek....email at hiscomposty@yahoo.com


2011-12-08 06:45:21   This is a quote from the Collected Works of Mahatma Ghandi “Why, of all places in Johannesburg, the Indian Location should be chosen for dumping down all the Kaffirs of the town passes my comprehension…the Town Council must withdraw the Kaffirs from the Location.” (Reference: CWMG, Vol I, pp. 244-245) Ghandi found success in South Africa for Indians by stepping on Africans, so I don't think Ghandi is so great as people say. —NickSchmalenberger
