UCSF Popo Enter the Tenderloin – “UC Hastings Entering Public Safety Partnership with UCSF Police

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

I had missed this news, but you can’t miss all the new UCSF vehicles on McAllister these days. Changing things was quite a big issue earlier this year. Anyway:

“Affected members of the UC Hastings Public Safety officer’s unit have been presented various employment options if they meet required qualifications, as police officers, security guards, or security guard supervisors for the UCSF Police Department. For officers who do not qualify (or elect to not apply) for jobs with the UCSF Police Department or alternative positions with UC Hastings, the College will offer conscientious separation terms.”


So that’s that – the oldest and largest law school in the West is now a little closer to the UC Family.

Which Sounds Worse: “The Sports Club/LA – San Francisco” or “MIAMI AD SCHOOL, San Francisco?”

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

The answer of course is “The Sports Club/LA – San Francisco,” which is just crazy, man.*

But this is close:


A: Screw this man, I’m going to ad school.

B: Miami Ad School?

A: Natch, man!

*I’m going to open my own own gym, call it “The Sports Club/Frisco.” And then I’m going to expand in the southland – call the new place “The Sports Club/Frisco – Los Angeles.” That’s the ticket.

The range of dese boids has increased a lot since I first saw them on the Filbert Steps some 11 years ago:


Speaking of which, they still hang out there, but they aren’t as approachable as back in the day:

Paging Mr. Herman: A Fully Operational James R. Herman Cruise Terminal at Pier 27

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

The newish James R. Herman Cruise Terminal at Pier 27 – it was either this or another Pier 39-type operation. Anyway, this is the first I’ve ever really seen this glassy building up there in the Tourist District.  I doubt I’ll ever go there myself:


And here’s Ruby Princess berthed at Pier 27 in front of Frisco’s third big bridge, the Richmond-San Rafael. That’s Red Rock Island in the middle there. It’s for sale. It’s always for sale:


And on the left is the JC, which is shut down now, but will open again, they say.

It’s always opening soon…
