The Deschutes River Alliance has released this short film documenting the decline of the Deschutes River. Please share this video with friends, family and all those who love this very special river.
The Deschutes River is facing a battle for it's life. Changes to the drawdown at PGE's Pelton Dam are seriously effecting the lower 100 miles of river. These changes are doing nothing to improve water quality in the reservoir itself, yet are the main reason for the new mixing tower and operation policy. While the reintroduction of anadromous species above the dam is a wonderful idea, it was just a carrot dangled to the tribes and other user groups to sign off on this plan. What is the cost? Will we lose Oregon's premiere Trout stream in the process? Until we address the issue of the water quality in the Crooked and Deschutes basins we will never improve the water quality in the reservoir. Flushing this water into the lower river is not the solution. Learn more at the Deschutes River Alliance.

In this age of cell phone cameras it seems that everyone fancies themselves a photographer or videographer. With a few taps on the screen a budding artist can post his or her work and sit back as their talent is measured in "likes" or some silly collection of emojis. There have been times when finding the right film to share with all of you seems like an impossible task. Today, not so much. This week when I entered my search, the first film that popped up is today’s feature. I wish all fly fishing films were this well done. I just don’t get the title…
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In astrology, a cadent house is the last house of each quadrant of the zodiac. A quadrant begins with a Cardinal house, (the house in which a chart angle lies) proceeds to a Succedent house and ends with a Cadent house. There are four quadrants in an astrological chart, providing four Cardinal, four Succedent, and four Cadent houses.
The Greeks called the cadent houses apoklima, which literally means "falling" or "decline," because the houses were seen to be falling away from the strength of the angular houses, which were considered to be most influential because of their perpendicular and appositive relationships to the Ascendant. The word apoklima also carries a denotation of degeneration and decline. Our English word "cadent" comes from the Latin translation of apoklima and is the source of our word "cadet," which originally meant a lesser branch of the family, or the younger son. 
Cadent houses are therefore usually considered by astrologers as less fertile and productive places by their nature than either angular or succedent houses, and the planets located in them are seen as generally less powerful and comfortable. This view of cadency is universally found in ancient sources. For example, Paulus Alexandrinus says of cadent houses: "stars [ed: i.e., planets] found in these zoidia [ed: i.e., houses] (3, 6, 9 and 12) become inharmonious. And sometimes they bring about hostile conditions, sometimes separations and banishments...". (However, there are conditions when a planet in a cadent house can be brought up to its full strength, for example, by a reasonably close trine to a benefit planet, such as Jupiter).
The notion of cadent houses as weak and ineffective also persists in medieval and Renaissance astrologers such as Guido Bonatti and William Lilly, who labeled cadent houses "poor and of little efficacy."
There, you learned something today.
