IDK, man, I’d prolly put the period inside of the quote mark, you know, “thusly,” as opposed to “thusly”, but that’s just how I (and about half a billion American English talkers) roll.

A Banner Day for USF

Three hundred banners are spreading the good word about USF on the streets of San Francisco.

They feature 12 different vignettes with slogans like “Change the World From Here” and “Our After-School Program is Called Silicon Valley,” and are meant to enhance USF’s visibility in the city, showcase its diversity, and connect USF with the city’s booming tech industry.

The banners hang from light poles along major city streets and in high-traffic neighborhoods like SOMA, Civic Center, Mission Bay, and the Sunset. 

They were installed in October and will remain on display through April 2016.”

The Urban School Expands All the Way to Oak Street – Here It Is, You Won’t be Able to Miss It

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

The house you see on the left used to be on the right – they moved it east a good 40 yards to make way.

Anyway, this location on busy, busy Oak will soon raise the profile of The Urban School…

It’s Come To This: Privatized School Buses – KIDZJET – As Seen Double Parking on Fell Street

Friday, February 26th, 2016

You’d think a transportation company called kidsJET would use actual jets, but here’s what the fleet looks like:

$280 per month per kid? Oh. Uber or Lyft or Shuddle might be cheaper, non?

I have notes.

Welcome to San Francisco. So like you can’t double-park on Fell Street in the Western Addition, right? I mean, it’s like our substitute Freeway To The West, right? What you can do is go around the block. Sorry.

Also, one of the reasons why CBS made this…

60 Minutes II 15-Passenger Van rollover report

…is due to some vans having too much rear overhang.. Your comic here shows the half-assed Chrysler / Ford approach that increased rollover risk.

I don’t think you can market safety with this style of van. Sorry. If anybody is still operating this kind of van, they should take out the last row and not put anything else there – just leave it empty is what I’m saying…

Anyway, I’ve never seen this company before.

The Dog What DIDN’T Bark: Mansion-Dwelling Millionaires in the Western Addition Seem to Have No Problem with THE URBAN SCHOOL Construction

Tuesday, January 26th, 2016

What’s this? It’s just a simple massive 50-feet steel beam double-parked for a long time in front of historic million-dollar-plus mansions.

Why? Well, it’s a part of the lengthy, noisy extension at THE URBAN SCHOOL, a private high school what costs three times (3x) as much as tuition at our University of California campuses.

And yet, nary a peep I’ve heard from the nabes.

Just saying…

If You Ran a Corrupt Art School/Real Estate/Car Empire, What Would Call Your Sports Teams? ANSWER: Urban Knights

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

“Now, a scathing expose in Forbes by Katia Savchuk is highlighting the plight of AAU’s grads. In her article, Ms. Savchuk describes the 86-year-old for-profit institution as little more than a masterful scam, which sinks prospective arts students into debt and leaves them with few job options and little career guidance. And with federal loans paying lots of the bills, the school’s founders aren’t too concerned about graduates’ ability to pay back their hulking loans.”

As seen in GGP, rather far afield from any Academy of Art locations I’m aware of:

(As opposed to Country Knights?)

Ah, art school.

Bonus: What would you call the cheerleaders? ANSWER: The KnightinGals? That’s one possibility.
