general: 2014 Subaru Forester has high oil consumption

By: Doran Barton on 2016-01-09 at 05:44:09

I bought my 2014 Subaru Forester Limited brand new and have already put over 60,000 miles on it. The 2.5 liter engine takes 0W20 synthetic oil and I've changed the oil every 6-7,000 miles myself.

However, the low-oil indicator on the dash frequently illuminates about 4,000 miles after an oil change requiring me to add half of a quart of oil. The car has required one half to one full quart of ...

politics: Pondering single-payer healthcare

By: Doran Barton on 2015-11-15 at 06:27:03

Tonight, the Democrats running for president had a debate. Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont spoke about his single-payer healthcare plan which would effectively eliminate the health insurance marketplace in the country. Sanders argued that it would also lower costs for medications, procedures, etc. which are currently very expensive in a comparison to costs in other countries.

And he's ...

On the mail-in ballot due November 3 in Herriman City is the Herriman Hills Initiative. This is an important referendum for Herriman City that, on the surface, seems quite straightforward but it isn't.

politics: Absolutely vote NO on Proposition 1

By: Doran Barton on 2015-10-09 at 19:46:08

For residents in Salt Lake County, there is a tax increase proposition on the mail-in ballot due November 3: Proposition 1. I strongly urge all residents to vote NO on this proposition.

If passed, this proposition would raise sales taxes on purchases in Salt Lake County by 0.25 percent and the revenue generated is to be used to fund transportation projects including:

tech: BYU Linux Club opening social

By: Doran Barton on 2015-10-01 at 18:19:57

Last night I attended the opening social for BYU Linux Club, a new on-campus club at Brigham Young University in Provo. I was invited to the event by Tyler Johnson, the club's president after he came to a Provo Linux User Group meeting a couple months ago. I told Tyler I'd record video of the opening social.

By: Doran Barton on 2015-09-15 at 05:47:11

I recently watched a YouTube video of a TED talk given by Debby Herbenick who is described on Wikipedia as being "one of the leading experts in the study of sexual behavior in the United States."

diabetes: An uncommon great day

By: Doran Barton on 2015-09-14 at 22:16:19

I recently had a really, really good day managing my Type-1 Diabetes. The photo of my Dexcom continuous glucose monitor below shows my 24-hour trend line and you will note the graph stays well within the high and low threshhold boundaries except for one spot in the evening where it briefly dipped below 75 (the low threshhold) after I went for a run.

general: The status of my documentary project

By: Doran Barton on 2015-08-28 at 22:00:14

Since the beginning of 2015, I've been working on a documentary about a man named Ernie Jiminez who, on Memorial Day, set a new world record for furthest successful shot at a target with a rifle using open-sights.

This will be my first documentary and as such, I've been beset with a lot of questions, lack of confidence, and uncertainty. Having never done this before, I don't know what to ...
