The Short List Judah Friedlander, Creative Nights and Horizon "I am a role model. I am the greatest martial artist on the planet," the actor and standup comic tells CityBeat with his trademark deadpan delivery. "But I'm also going to be the next president of the United States." 
Theater ‘The Orphan of Zhao’ finds a home in La Jolla Luminous and artfully staged, La Jolla Playhouse’s The Orphan of Zhao, presented in association with American Conservatory Theater, is an epic story of sacrifice, revenge and self-reclamation.
Film The insane sincerity of ‘Wish I Was Here’  Zach Braff means well. I truly believe that. How else can one rationalize the actor-turned-filmmaker’s insanely sincere view of the world. But the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Shenanigans: Calculating Carl

Can you calculate the growth of the mayoral candidate's head?

By Dave Maass
demaiohead
In the spirit of this week's education-related cover story, we present this math problem about Carl DeMaio, who's running for mayor of San Diego.

1a. DeMaio's head is growing at a rate of one inch in circumference per day. If his head is a foot wide from ear to ear on the day of the June 5 primary election, and he wins enough votes to advance, approximately how big around will DeMaio's head be by the time of the Nov. 6 general election?

1b. If DeMaio wins the general election, the radius of his head will double in length every week. How long until DeMaio’s head is bigger than the Earth (radius: 20.9 millionfeet)?

Send your answer to davem@sdcitybeat.com.

WALL OF CHAMPIONS!
