Oil Spill in San Francisco Bay! 58,000 Gallons

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency Friday after meeting with state, federal and local officials overseeing the cleanup. The proclamation makes additional state personnel, funding and equipment available.

About 770 workers joined cleanup crews on the water and along beaches to mop up the damage - a job said most of the spilled oil will never be captured and eventually will dissolve into the water. Concentrated globules could remain for months and cause problems for seabirds.
At least 60 birds were found dead while 200 live birds were recovered and sent to a rehabilitation center in Solano County.

State wildlife officials said they have received hundreds of reports of oiled birds found on Bay area beaches, two dozen of which were closed after tides carried the oil under the Golden Gate Bridge and into the Pacific Ocean.

Most of the injured birds are surf scoters, a duck-like species that lives on the water's surface and dives for fish. When oil gets on their feathers, it disrupts their waterproofing system and ability to stay warm, forcing them on shore where they are at risk of starvation.

"Oil and feathers don't mix," said Yvonne Addassi, a wildlife biologist with the state Department of Fish and Game. "We're in a time crunch. The birds can only stayed oiled for so long before they can no longer be rehabilitated."

Fish and Game officials said the fuel generally stays on the water's surface, and they had not seen any evidence that fish have been harmed - though they are concerned that the spill could affect bay herring that spawn at this time of year.

Bay Area fisherman want the governor to officially close the commercial and sport crabbing season on the California coast from Point Arena to the Mexican border until the waters are deemed safe, said Larry Collins, vice president of the Crab Boat Owners Association.

The sports season started on Nov. 3 and the commercial season was slated to start Nov. 15.
The crabbers said the oil spill does not harm the crustaceans, who dwell deep on the ocean floor. The oil harms crabs when they're transferred to the live tanks in which are housed after being caught. Collins said crabs brought in by some fisherman on Saturday were dead on arrival.

Shaklee and YOU: Staying Young


Today On Oprah, All New! Part II of YOU: Staying Young

Dr. Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen are back with more from their book YOU: Staying Young. Dr. Oz has said it's within your power to live to 100—now find out how to do it!
A big emphasis on detox, your home is VERY important to detox too! Your home's air quality can make a big difference in your healthy aging. "The smallest particles are the ones that do the most damage," Dr. Oz says.
Here's some ways you can make your home healthier:
Regularly open up windows to air out your home of all the fumes and particles trapped inside.
Making your house healthier starts right at your front door.
Take off your shoes when you enter to avoid tracking in pesticides and lawn chemicals.
When you microwave food, don't leave it in plastic containers or with plastic covering. That plastic could leak into the food. Instead, use glass or other microwave-safe containers.
Instead of using toxic chemicals to clean your sink and bathtub, Dr. Oz recommends using baking soda. And you can use white vinegar to clean your windows.
Or look for brands like Shaklee's Get Clean line. Oprah says she loves their Basic H2 Organic Super Concentrated, All Purpose cleaner. Click here for more on these great products!

To avoid the chemicals used in dry cleaning, take your clothes out of the bags while you're outside and throw the bags away. Then, let your clothes air out for at least a day before wearing them.

Use a dehumidifier to cut down on potentially toxic mold in places like garages.
If you must store old cans of paint and varnish, only do it in well-ventilated places that are far from your living area.

Include plants like spider plants, golden pothos and philodendrons in your home. They are experts at converting carbon dioxide to oxygen.
Thanks to Dr. Oz, Roizen and Oprah for this enlightening segment!
