Hooray for San Diego and it’s oil prospects

From the LA Times-

“There, about 200 biotech companies of all kinds are clustered near La Jolla on the mesa above Torrey Pines State Beach.”
Hey, that’s near where I live.  

“The San Diego Center for Algae Biotechnology was launched in 2008 with 16 founding partners from UC San Diego, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Salk Institute for Biological Studies, biofuel companies and more.”
I know where that is. 

Until recently, “algae has been this complete backwater of scientific research,” said the center’s founding director, Steve A. Kay, who is also dean of biological sciences at UC San Diego.
I don’t know who that is.

In any case, I think UCSD should change its mascot from the tritons…
To the Pond Scum!

Sounds like a perfect nickname for our football team.
