Meagan Flynn, The Washington Post Published 4:07 am PDT, Wednesday, August 29, 2018 Marjorie Moon's date with Paul Guadalupe Gonzales at a swanky restaurant in Los Angeles in 2016 was going fine. That is, until the moment he disappeared from it. Gonzales was charming at first, if not a little fawning, Moon said.

It’s the “trend” that’s been around for millennia.It’s a process that, counterintuitively, uses fire to make wood more fire-resistant.And it’s a technique that preserves wood by, in a sense, destroying its surface.Welcome to shou sugi ban.A ‘hot’ trendAt its core, shou sugi ban — also called yakisugi in Japan — is a process of treating wood with intense heat, then quickly cooling it.

They were planning on visiting Alcatraz on Sunday during a short trip to San Francisco from their home in San Diego. But, with news of Muir Woods closing Monday due to the federal government shutdown, they had to rearrange their plans, she said, and quickly. “We just found out yesterday,” she said. “We’re lucky they let us switch the tickets.” In a standoff that continues to hold the federal budget hostage, the Muir Woods National Monument, one of the most iconic of Bay Area parks, will finally have to close Monday after managing to stay open for the first 16 days of the shutdown thanks to donations from park vendors, according to a post on the National Park Service’s website.
