Well, Now the SFMTA / MUNI _LIKES_ the State of Israel – Of Course, SFGov Could Stop These Ads, But $$$Thursday, March 19th, 2015
Does it not?
Oh what’s that, Brinkman? MUNI sometimes posts Maya Angelou couplets or whathaveyou to make up for all its “offensive” ads? Oh, well, I suppose that takes care of everything then…
I’m sure that somewhere on this bus is a disclaimer saying how MUNI don’t believe in the ads that people pay it money so that you believe in the ads, but I don’t see that disclaimer here in this shot. What I see is a couple of large slogans plus the large MUNI snake logo.
In fact, to see the disclaimers that FIX EVERYTHING FOR MUNI, you’d need SUPER-VISION.
I’ll tell you, I can see 20-15 (corrected, of course, bifocals, of course) but I am/ I am NOT Superman/ so I can’t see everything.
And neither can you, Gentle Reader…
Hey Lawyers, Here’s a Gig for You! Get Paid Six Figures to Represent Indebted California Culinary Academy GradsWednesday, June 13th, 2012
Hey, remember Amador v. California Culnary Academy?
Well they’re still doling out the cash on this one, so why not get some of it?
Now I’ll tell you, the only worser idea than going to law school these days (ooh, that link is a bit much, non?) is going to cooking school, am I right, GF? So why not use your JD to help the poor souls who were misled by the California Culinary Academy?
It’s a win-win, baby! Get all the deets below.
Sure, cooking school can be sexy, but does it pay off?
This job is new, this job is you, Counselor:
“Senior Counsel and Director of Legal Aid Firm (downtown / civic / van ness)
This is an opportunity to found a legal aid organization. In Amador v. California Culnary Academy, students alleged they were led to believe the $46,000 12-month culinary education they received would make economic sense based on their post-graduation job opportunities. For most students that proved untrue.
In connection with the $41.8 million class action settlement of the case (judgement is expected to become final later this month), $2 million has been earmarked to provide student-debt-related services to class members. These class members need help dealing with their creditors. The director will set up and manage the firm under the oversight of the trustees of the fund, Ray E. Gallo and Robert W. Mills. The objective is to effectively manage and compromise the class members’ debts by all legal means. Also, through other fundraising efforts, we hope this new firm may live beyond its $2 million founding budget to become the first agency to focus on providing remedies to the economically disadvantaged when they suffer consumer-related tragedies like those at issue in Amador.
The ideal applicant is an attorney with 10 or more years of experience who enjoys being in a courtroom and has significant experience supervising other lawyers and staff members. Big firm training and top 10 schooling are preferred, but anybody smart and scrappy is welcome to apply. This will be a small firm environment, and effective use of technology will be essential, so you should be someone who welcomes those things.
The job may be available as early as July 1, 2012 and requires a commitment of at least two years. The location of the firm will be determined in consultation with the Director once hired.
