Remember Smart Cars will fit anywhere!
Even when they don’t, owners think they do, oh well.
One doc the SFCTA had dissed this bridge 23 times, ’cause the SFCTA thinks it will interfere with the Geary BRT project. And this marketing doc here gets into it a bit.
Well it turns out that this bridge will stick around. Look, about a dozen and a half souls were using it last I saw it:
Anyway, this bridge will slow down the BRT yet they’re still talking about how the “average” #38 round-trip rider will save a half an hour a day. This seems impossible to me. If they said a few #38 riders might save a half hour on some days, well, that’d be more honest, but you can’t expect too much from the SFCTA / SFMTA…
On Geary west of Masonic, which is Richmond enough for me.
“Cherish the Day” is the fourth and final single by English band Sade from their fourth studio album, Love Deluxe (1992). It was released in the UK on July 31, 1993 and in the US on September 11, 1993. In the black and white shot music video, Sade Adu performs the song while playing a guitar on the rooftop of an NYC skyscraper as her bandmates and a few other people vibe to the music on the streets below. With the prominent views of the World Trade Center in most of the shots and with the coincidence of its US release date falling on September 11th, the music video for the single acts as an unintended tribute to the Twin Towers.
Here you go:
And here’s the problem:
“Let me say something very provocative — I think there is a high certainty e-sports will be an Olympic sport in 2020.”
Well first of all, when did video games become a “sport?” Which of course is:
Oh so you think video games can fit in there? What about chess then? Let me say something very provocative, Gentle Reader – I think there is a high certainty chess will be an Olympic sport in 2020. That’s the ticket.
And second of all, look for any mention of any video games at all here:
Following the 2012 Games, the IOC assessed the 26 sports held in London, with the remit of selecting 25 ‘core’ sports to join new entrants golf and rugby sevens at the 2020 Games. In effect, this would involve the dropping of one sport from the 2016 Games program. This would leave a single vacancy in the 2020 Games program, which the IOC would seek to fill from a shortlist containing seven unrepresented sports and the removed sport. On 12 February 2013, IOC leaders voted to drop wrestling from the Olympic program, a surprise decision that removed one of the oldest Olympic sports from the 2020 Games. Wrestling, which combines freestyle and Greco-Roman events, goes back to the inaugural modern Olympics in Athens in 1896, and even further to the Ancient Olympic Games. The decision to drop wrestling was opposed in many countries and by their NOCs. Wrestling therefore joined other sports in a short list applying for inclusion in the 2020 Games. On 29 May 2013, it was announced that three sports made the final shortlist; squash, baseball/softball, and wrestling. Five other sports (karate, roller sports, sport climbing, wakeboarding, and wushu) were excluded from consideration at this point. On 8 September 2013, at the 125th IOC Session, the IOC selected wrestling to be included in the Olympic program for 2020 and 2024. Wrestling secured 49 votes, while baseball/softball secured 24 votes and squash got 22 votes.
So what’s up with that?
And note that the Guber didn’t say by 2020, he said “in 2020.” So I don’t see how it’s even remotely possible that there’s a “certainty” that “E-Sports” video gaming will somehow become “an Olympic sport in 2020.”
