    Is It Safe To Swim?

    By Dylan Roche
    Picture somebody who advocates safe swimming and helps ensure protection for people who go in the water for recreational use. In most cases, it’s easy to think of a lifeguard, armed with a whistle and ring buoy, standing at the ready to help someone in trouble.
    But what about a scientist? In...

    By Dylan Roche
    You might be familiar with the expression “the calm before the storm” but I tend to think of May and early June as the storm before the calm. I’m referring, of course, to the whirlwind of activity that happens before we all switch into vacation mode for summer.

    When you’ve been a part of a close community for so long, you can sometimes forget to look at it with fresh eyes, but that’s what our editorial team here at the Pasadena Voice tries to do every year as we pick up our notepads and cameras to cover many of the annual...
