BART plans to spend $90 million on replacing all 700 gates in the system with gates that are too high to jump and too strong to push through, which system administrators hope will lead to a sharp decrease in fare evasion. When I heard about the supposedly unbeatable gates, I knew I had to try to beat them. Surprisingly, spokesperson Jim Allison invited me to the West Oakland BART Station to give it my best.

Raging wildfires in 2020 transformed Big Basin Redwoods State Park in Santa Cruz County from a towering forested cathedral into a standing boneyard with some of the oldest trees on the planet seemingly burned beyond survival.

But soon after the flames were gone, California’s coast redwoods began calling upon a remarkable energy storage system helping these trees survive even after fires burned away every life-sustaining green needle.

Scientists now have an idea about just how far back these reserves go. Researchers studying a stand of severely burned old growth Big Basin redwoods found the trees fed ancient buds that had been hiding underneath thick bark for more than 1,000 years using carbon transformed into sugars with sunlight that shone more than a half-century ago.
