A 315-Seat Theatre Coming to Haight Ashbury? Admission Will Cost $40K per Year – “Urban School” Hearing on January 22

Friday, January 9th, 2015

Those who’d like to yammer about this project are welcome to waste their time come January 22, 2015.

Read all about it.

(Man, that Urban School has some expensive tuition.)

7J7C1836 copy

“Tuition                         $38,100
Laptop Fee                       $620
Total Charges            $38,720

In budgeting for four years of an Urban education, parents can expect annual tuition increases. The average tuition increase has been 4.2% per year, over the last five years.

For many families, the cost of an independent secondary education may seem overwhelming at first. To assist families in making this important investment in their child’s future, Urban has developed several payment options, including monthly payments, a loan program, and a financial aid program:

Plan 1: Tuition is paid in two installments: Payment 1 by July 1 ($25,260) and Payment 2 by January 1 ($9,650).

Plan 2: Tuition is paid in 10 installments, May to February ($3,491). 

Loan Program: A family may borrow up to the total cost of an Urban education, less any financial aid received. The repayment period extends from 24-84 months, and there are no prepayment penalties.”

Don’t Call It “Frisco,” But Happy FRISCO Day, Officially, Today, Friday, April 13th, 2012 at Area Collleges

Friday, April 13th, 2012

Today’s a big day for San Francisco High School students.

Check it:

“What is FRISCO Day?

FRISCO Day is an annual event held in spring to help all San Francisco Unified School District graduating seniors enroll in college, learn about financial literacy, develop support systems and build relationships with other students to help them complete the transition to college.

FRISCO Day (FRIday = Successful College Opportunities) started in April 2011 with more than 3,000 students participating at four locations: City College of San Francisco (CCSF) hosted all students who were CCSF bound and for students who were not yet sure of their educational plan, California State University (CSU) bound students went to San Francisco State’s campus to learn about the CSU system, University of California (UC) bound students visited UC San Francisco Mission Bay to learn about the UC system, and other two-and four-year public and private college bound students attended workshops delivered by the College Bound Network held at the Fort Mason Conference Center.

This year, students will go to CCSF (those students CCSF bound and for students who were not yet sure of their educational plan), University of California San Francisco Mission Bay, UCSF (those students who plan on going to a UC) and St. Mary’s Conference Center (for students who plan to attend a CSU or other 2 or 4 year colleges).

Why is it called FRISCO Day?

Bon courage, seniors!

Horrible North Beach NIMBY Richard Silver Makes Galileo High School Girls Drill Team Cry at Joe DiMaggio Playground

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

North Beach News has the deets on this police call in North Beach from the other day.

We had multiple reports yesterday of an incident at DiMaggio that led to some of the ROTC kids crying on the playground. Checking with Captain Tacchini at Central Station, he tells us “The incident involved a neighbor who was complaining about the apparent noise being caused by a group of young girls participating in ROTC practice in the park. The neighbor was aggressive and intimidating and causing fear and disruption to the girls’ practice session. Officers responded to calm the situation and make sure nobody was in harm’s way.”

OK then.

You’ve heard of NIMBYs? Well this is what one of them looks like, just as you’d expect, with a beret and everything:

How loud is too loud? Take a listen to get an idea of what the drill team does.

More deets:

“Today, our regular threatening neighbor (the man with the glasses) charged at one of the teams and demanded our personal information and even tried to take a picture. After a series of arguments and trying to get through to the man, the police got involved. A local…I guess…volunteer? who uses the grounds saw the commotion and called 9-1-1. The police came, and guess who was wrong? The man…he was charged for harassing a group of youth. (It really makes an impression when all of GDT are in tears)”

Dude. What are you doing?

Dude!

Do You Know These Three Girls Who Hang Out on Polk Street? One of them Stole a Cell Phone and Wallet at a Subway Sandwich

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Here’s the sad story from the dude what lost his stuff at the Subway Sandwiches on Polk and Sutter:

“(3/25/2012) I was in the Subway sandwiches place at 1199 Sutter at Polk and then walked outside to get a taxi for some people I was with. I had accidentally left my phone and wallet on the table. When I returned about 30 seconds later my stuff was gone. Here is the surveillance video of who took it. Please message me or email me at racejohnson@gmail.com if you recognize her.”

Now, I say girls, I mean, I can’t tell how old they are, something betwixt 14 and 24. They act like high school students AFAIAC.

Yet Another Video of the Whole SFO – Deshon Marman – U.S. Air Flight 488 Thing

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

In the words of Black Christian News:

“When you vote for Homosexual Marriage, you open up the door for a whole bunch of uncomfortable stuff.”

OK then.

Comes now Jon Brooks of the News Fix with word of NMA weighing in.

I’ve already said my piece.

Leave us depart this affair, older and wiser…

Don’t Sass Sully: SFO Passenger Deshon Marman Was _Not_ Arrested for His Clothing, Right?

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

Via News Fix, KQED’s Bay Area News Blog, comes word of an apparently inexplicable conundrum.

All right, here we go:

1. Passenger Jill Tarlow needs to get a life outside of photographing whatever “shocks” her. (“I was shocked, completely shocked. I’m shocked…” Yada yada yada…)

2. Listen To Your Captain.

Now, if you want to completely ignore flight crew that’s your choice, but it might be tough to fly. And when the Captain asks you to leave, it’s time to leave. Otherwise you’re going to get arrested for trespassing. And if you injure the cops taking you off your flight, well, you’re just making things worse for yourself.

Don’t be “reverent” and “respectful” – it’s not necessary. Just make the effort to pretend to listen flight crew and you’ll be fine. (And, oh yes, if you want to say “sir,” say it once at the beginning of the exchange. Don’t use it as a crutch word, just  saying.)

Honest.

Anyway, if you want to call this thing “pilot error,” well then be my guest but you’re wrong.

Anyway, to review:

Starting at :45, this is an example of how to get yourself tossed off a flight at SFO or anywhere.

“Deshon Marman, 20, a defensive player for the University of New Mexico and graduate of Lincoln High in San Francisco, was arrested and removed from US Airways flight 488 Wednesday after police said he ignored an airline employee’s request to pull up sweatpants that exposed his underwear below the buttocks.”

Nice video, San Francisco Chronicle:

It doesn’t matter why the captain has come back to have a chat with you, all that matters is this:

The captain isn’t going to fly you anywhere if you avoid listening to him or her by incessantly interrupting him or her.

(Right? Pilots hate it when you don’t listen to them.)

Also, fighting with the SFPD is a surefire way of making sure that the San Mateo County District Attorney can’t just laugh things off.

This is true regardless of what clothes you wear or how you wear your clothes…
