Do I have this right? Take a look:
Like I said, I’ve never seen this kind of wake-up call…
All the deets:
“Panel Discussion on Race and Policing
September 28, 2016
3:30 – 5:00 pm
UC Hastings College of the Law
Louis B. Mayer Lounge
198 McAllister Street
In the last few years, a series of tragic incidents raised public attention to a serious crisis of trust between police departments and the communities they serve, particularly communities of color and of low income. These incidents have led to vocal riots and to the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, leading to violent clashes between activists and police officers. What are the roots of this crisis? How can racialized practices in policing be understood and addressed? What is being done, and what should be done, to heal the broken trust between the police and the community? This panel on Race & Policing will feature voices of activists, police officers, lawyers, community-relations officials, and academics, in an effort to tackle these important questions.
Race and Policing Panel at UC Hastings
WHO: Panelists include San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi, San Francisco Police Department Interim Chief Toney Chaplin, UC Berkeley Professor Nikki Jones, Former Director of the DOJ’s Community Service Relations Service Grande Lum, Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, and UC Hastings Professor Hadar Aviram (moderator).
WHAT: UC Hastings is hosting a panel of leaders in the criminal justice field — activists, police officers, lawyers, community-relations officials, and academics — to discuss the complicated relationship between race and policing.
WHEN: Wednesday, September 28, 2016, 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
WHERE: Louis B. Mayer Lounge, UC Hastings College of the Law, 198 McAllister Street, San Francisco, CA 94102 OR watch via livestream.
REGISTRATION: Event is free and open to the public. Registration online here.

“Serving the Hastings Community” it says on the side.
So Hastings still has unarmed uniformed security guards? IDK. Back in the 1990’s there was some push for them to cowboy up with sidearms* but some people thought it a bad idea.
Anyway, presenting one of the few police vehicles in San Francisco not made by Ford…
*Or “assault weapons” in the lexicon of our day.

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:
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.
Please submit cover letter, resume, writing sample, and salary history by email. Potentially qualified candidates will be asked to complete online assessments.
I think that’s the right way to describe it.
Here’s the news of the day:
“Attention Golden Gate Law School graduates We intend to sue 15 law schools throughout the country — including 4 in California — shortly after the New Year for allegedly inflating their employment data. One of the schools we intend to sue is the Golden Gate University School of Law (we’ve just added them to our list). Our general rule is that we won’t sue a school unless we have at least three name plaintiffs, and while we’ve secured the requisite number for most of the schools, we still have not reached that number for Golden Gate Law. If you have graduated from the school in the past few years and would potentially be interested in serving as a class representative please visit my law firm’s website (http://www.anziskalaw.com/) to learn more about the Law School Litigation or give me a call at 914-216-3540. Now is the time to make your voices heard and finally hold law schools accountable. Regards. . .David”
Actually, maybe it’s good news that this attorney needs to hunt on the craigslist for GGU grads. (You’d think that former students would be coming out of the woodwork already during this Great Recession.)
Oh, and USF too – you’re gonna get sued as well.
The schools on the list currently:
“1) Albany Law School
2) Brooklyn Law School
3) Hofstra Law School
4) Pace University School of Law
5) St. John’s University School of Law
6) Widener University School of Law
7) University of Baltimore School of Law
8 ) Florida Coastal School of Law
9) Chicago-Kent College of Law
10) DePaul University School of Law
11) John Marshall School of Law
12) California Western School of Law
13) Southwestern Law School
14) Golden Gate University School of Law
15) University of San Francisco School of Law”
That’s it so far. To Be Continued…

Not that you’d really be able to tell, though. Sutro Tower Inc. has just finished a project that had some of the digital TV broadcast antennas (not “antennae” – that plural term is only used for bugs in our silly English language) gaining a higher altitude.
Not much howver, maybe a seven-percent increase, max. Does that make a big difference? No, not for most people, but at least STI is trying.
Here’s the antenna of KPIX-TV (OMG, that’s the home of Eye on Blogs – big ups, Brittney Gilbert!) a way up top, like 1700 feet above sea level. Now Channel 5 is as high as possible:

The Future is Now, and what’s labeled “CURRENT” is history:
Well, they were still wrapping the KPIX, KRON, KTVU antenna assembly, but you get the idea.
So it looks like we’re all set with the Great Digital TV Conversion of 2009. As long as Sutro Tower doesn’t get hit by a shooting star….
…we’ll be all right.
