July 21, 1971 – July 20, 2011

  Christopher died unexpectedly on July 20th with his family by his side. He had somehow contracted necrotizing fasciitis (flesh eating bacteria) and it shut down his body very quickly to the shock of everyone.
  Christopher was born in Newport Beach in 1971 and grew up on Balboa Island. He was an avid sportsman during his life. Junior All American and Corona del Mar High School Football, skateboarding, skiing, snowboarding, fishing and most of all surfing.
  His work in the culinary field allowed him to travel. He lived on Maui for several years with shorter stays in Lake Tahoe, Las Vegas and Cabo San Lucas.
  Chris had many lifelong friends from the Newport area and from his travels. He was known affectionately by the name of “Beanie” to many of his friends. To be his friend was to be a friend for life.
  He was an accomplished musician, playing the guitar, bass, drums and singing with several bands. His friends say his smile would light up the room. He was the life of the party.
  Chris was a wonderful and devoted father to two beautiful girls, a great big brother, and a wonderful and caring son, always remembering the important occasions. Just a wonderful person. He was very loved and will be deeply missed by his family and many, many friends.
  He is survived by his parents, Bill & Penny Darling, brothers, Michael & John Darling, daughters, Gwendolyn & Naomi Smith, their mother , Sarah Smith, Aunt & Uncle, Pamela & Lewis Canfield, Aunt, Stephanie Myers, Cousin, Grayton Myers, Aunt & Uncle, Sue & Dan Naber, Cousins, Amy & Tom Loveless, Cousins, Laurie Naber & Chris Anderson and countless friends.

Bottled Water Carries Hidden Cost to Earth

Good for You, Bad for Mother Earth? | $1.79 might seem like a small price to pay for a bottle of water. But it costs the Earth far more than that.

Compared to a liter of tap water, producing a liter of bottled water requires as much as 2,000 times more energy, according to the first analysis of its kind. The study also found that our nation's bottled water habit sucked up the equivalent of 32 to 54 million barrels of oil last year.

"The bottom line is that we should understand better the implications of our choices," said Peter Gleick, president of the Pacific Institute for Studies in Development, Environment, and Security in Oakland, Calif. "It suggests more ways to reduce energy use than maybe we otherwise think of."

Bottled water is a big business that is rapidly getting bigger. From 1976 to 2007, the average amount of bottled water drunk per person per year in the United States jumped from about 6 liters (1.6 gallons) to 116 liters (30.6 gallons).

Air pollution can cause serious health problems. Rarely, it can even kill people — and we’re not exaggerating. That’s why we care so much about the laws that protect us from air pollution. Read on to learn more about the specific parts of our bodies that are affected by air pollution. Air pollution can be made of tiny particles or gases, and these get into your body when you breathe. Different types of air pollution do different things inside your body. Air pollution can directly irritate the eyes, nose, and throat, before it even gets into the lungs. It can cause runny nose, itchy eyes, and scratchy throat. LUNGS When you breathe in, air moves through your nose or mouth, down your throat into your trachea, and then into your lungs. Pollution can irritate the airways. When that happens, muscles around the bronchi get tight; the lining of the bronchi swell; and the bronchi produce excess mucous. When the airways are constricted, it b…
