See if you start noticing a theme here:
They’re calling it The San Francisco Advantage
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…
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…
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.
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.
Here’s the Wiki it wrote for itself – outdated as of 2008
All this can be yours, for $30K (or less) per year…
“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?)
Bonus: What would you call the cheerleaders? ANSWER: The KnightinGals? That’s one possibility.
Let’s see, how to unpack this one here:
That link, sent out to, what, 1% of Twitter, goes here:
“Stanford Report, August 5, 2015
Stanford scholar illuminates history of disputed China Sea islands
Friction between China and Japan over sovereignty for the resource-rich Diaoyu Islands has escalated in recent years. Research by Stanford graduate student Xiang Zhai reveals new details about the dispute that might help resolve it.
BY CORRIE GOLDMAN
The Humanities at Stanford”
And in it we have this:
“Zhai’s investigation centers on Chiang, who ruled China from 1927 to 1949 and Taiwan from 1949 to 1975. His alleged indifference toward the fate of the Diaoyu Islands is frequently cited as the reason that the islands have not come back under Chinese control.”
1. First of all, that Tweet above was the updated version of this one, which made mention of the South China Sea. Whoops! Who’s in control of this account?
2. And second of all, here’s your history of the Senkakus – since the late 1800’s, it’s been “possessed” by Japan, then the U.S., and then Japan again. How would what any one person thinks about this dispute have changed this fact? For better or worse, this is history IRL. And is Chiang’s purported “indifference” frequently cited IRL? No, not at all. And how on Earth could whatever Chiang thought about the Senkakus Way Back When help resolve the dispute today?
Let’s say that somebody researched the 70 year old diaries of the Prime Minister of Argentina – how could such research possibly help resolve the Falkland Islands dispute?
And mention is made of the Ryukus and Okinawa – is that the “small” chain of islands mentioned? I could go on and on…
This entire bit seems like it was translated from Chinese, just saying.
Think, Stanford, think!
This is just one part of The Trek – can you see them all, laboring their borrowed carts up Lone Mountain going to where – a moving van somewhere near Geary in the Inner Richmond?
Come to think of it, USF goes out of its way to avoid pissing off its neighbors on Moving Days
I guess that’s the price you gotta pay when you’re an Urban University…
