    In Amazon's million-square-foot order-filling warehouse, two low-slung orange robots carrying stacks of consumer products are zipping across the floor, headed right at each other. One stops -- not on a dime, it turns out, but rather over a QR code stuck to the floor -- and allows the other to proceed, carrying inventory to a human worker who will pluck out an item, scan it and send it off for packing and shipping.

    In the latest sign of California's improving drought picture, federal officials announced Friday that cities will receive 55 percent of their contracted water amounts this summer -- up from 25 percent last year -- from the Central Valley Project, California's largest water delivery system. Heavy rains in March boosted the amount of water in Northern California's large reservoirs such as Shasta and Folsom, allowing farmers in the Sacramento Valley and wildlife refuges to receive 100 percent of their contracted amounts, while the Contra Costa Water District also will receive 100 percent, up from 25 percent a year ago.

    Feb 21, 2016 | Contra Costa Times

    THE FORCE OF DEMOCRACY: A long time ago, in a county elections office not so far away, someone recognized that voter apathy was spreading faster than the Millennium Falcon making the Kessel Run and decided an innovative approach was needed to combat it.
