Last Summer BETTER


Last Summer is a 1969 teen drama film directed by Frank Perry and written by his then-wife Eleanor Perry, based on the 1968 novel of the same name by Evan Hunter. It stars Barbara Hershey, Richard Thomas, Bruce Davison, and Catherine Burns. The film follows the exploits of four teenagers during a summer vacation on Fire Island, New York.




Last Summer



As "Last Summer" opens we are introduced to three affluent teenagers, two boys and a girl, who are spending the summer on Fire Island with their parents. Sandy, the girl, is more familiar and experienced with sex than the boys, or so she would have them believe. The two boys are, naturally, unsure of themselves. They are not men and yet must be concerned with manhood. In the hot sun, during the long summer, the three friends circle the knowledge of sex like skittish colts.


What happens then -- how the story is brought to a conclusion -- is not really important to the greatness of the movie. Indeed, the sensational last scene doesn't strike me as particularly valid. A quieter conclusion would have made the point.


Restaurant closures, social distancing protocols, and other safety measures also contributed to losses in other sectors of the seafood economy. By the end of second quarter 2020, 78 percent of aquaculture, aquaponics, and allied businesses reported COVID-19 impacts with 74 percent experiencing lost sales. The analysis noted outdoor seating at restaurants in warm months and a pivot to direct delivery at some supermarkets provided an outlet for some aquaculture sales. Also, the recreational charter/for-hire fishing industry was completely shut down in the spring with some phased reopenings in the early summer. The new analysis contains regional snapshots to help industries understand local impacts to key fisheries.


The California Independent System Operator (CAISO), California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and California Energy Commission (CEC) released their final root cause analysis report on Wednesday, outlining key factors that led the state to trigger rolling outages last summer.


Last summer's rolling blackouts were the result of inadequate supply-demand planning as well as market issues, California's grid operator confirmed. The incidents last summer captured national attention, with some ready to solely blame the state's high levels of solar capacity for the issue. But stakeholders say the issue is more complicated.


California's heat wave last summer was a 1-in-30 year weather event in the state, according to CAISO's analysis, which extended across much of the Western U.S., creating high demand for power that exceeded planning targets. Further, resource planning targets have not kept pace with the evolving power mix, wherein demand during peak hours outpaces the supply of solar-produced power. Finally, the market had under-scheduled demand projections and day-ahead market rules prevented it from realizing the error.


The CPUC opened an emergency reliability rulemaking to require additional resource procurement before next summer, and CAISO is recommending the CPUC increase its resource adequacy targets for certain hours of peak demand. CAISO is also expediting a stakeholder process that will allow it to more accurately see real time supply and demand during constrained conditions. CAISO and the CPUC are also working to ensure that all battery storage projects get online as scheduled and ensure those resources operate reliably and efficiently right away.


Ren, Polo, Buck and Sun are a group of close childhood friends, who play together as a band. However, everyone except Ren is leaving the village for college, which means this is their last summer together.


Last Summer in the City gives us an abandoned Rome, a city deserted and hot, in which its overgrowth is left to flourish and take over. These depictions of the Eternal City in August are strikingly accurate and visceral. (I can confirm this as I am writing from an empty piazza in Testaccio where everyone has left for the sea or the mountains and the wind is my only companion.) Calligarich gives us this version of the city beautifully, and Howard Curtis, the translator, brings this vision into English with great care and elegance. Gazzaro gives us this description of his last summer in the city:


Young Adelia Monteforte begins the summer of 1941 aboard a crowded ship bound for America, utterly alone yet free of Fascist Italy. Whisked away to the seaside by her well-meaning aunt and uncle, she slowly begins to adapt to her new life. That summer, she basks in the noisy affection of the boisterous Irish-Catholic boys next door, and although she adores all four of the Connally brothers, it's the eldest, Charlie, she pines for. But all hopes for a future together are throttled by the creep of war and a tragedy that hits much closer to home. 041b061a72
