All the deets for Our New Store:

“October 17, 2012 SAN FRANCISCO

Target is pleased to announce that it will open its second CityTarget store in the city of San Francisco in October 2013. The San Francisco West CityTarget will be 119,000 square-feet and located at the southwest corner of Geary and Masonic Streets. On October 10, 2012, the company opened the doors to the city’s first-ever Target store, also a CityTarget, at the Metreon.

“We are thrilled to call San Francisco home to our newest CityTarget at Geary and Masonic,” said Cary Strouse, Target’s senior vice president of stores in the Western region. “With more than five CityTarget locations confirmed, California has always been a strong market for Target. We are excited to continue being a good neighbor and developing long-lasting relationships with guests at both San Francisco Target stores.”

The San Francisco West CityTarget will offer commuters, tourists and urban dwellers the convenience of one-stop shopping with urban living essentials, on-trend fashions and exclusive designer collections. The store also will include a Starbucks and a pharmacy to further enhance guests’ shopping experience.

San Francisco’s newest CityTarget will employ approximately 250 team members. Target will host job fairs approximately two months prior to the new store opening, where prospective candidates may apply and interview for open team member positions. Prospective candidates may also apply online at Target.com/careers or at in-store kiosks located at all Target stores approximately three months prior to the new store opening.

In addition to the Metreon location in San Francisco, Target opened two CityTargets in the city of Los Angeles at Westwood Market Place and a downtown location at Figueroa and 7th.  With five locations confirmed, the state of California has more CityTargets than any other state in the nation.  Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Westwood, Calif. locations were opened earlier this year.  In addition to the San Francisco West CityTarget, the company has announced 2013 openings in Portland and Los Angeles. 

Since 2011, Target has contributed more than $2 million to support the San Francisco-area community, including Field Trip Grants to San Francisco-area schools, a School Library Makeover at Sanchez College Preparatory School and support for local chapters of the United Way through store grants and employee contributions.

LONDON CALLING: London Breed Goes Off on Rose Pak and Willie Brown and Luke Thomas Gets It Verbatim

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

I think District Five Supervisor wannabee London Breed is still a little pissed off about not getting appointed Supervisor earlier this year, just a little:

You think I give a fuck about a Willie Brown at the end of the day when it comes to my community* and the shit that people like Rose Pak and Willie Brown continue to do and try to controls things.  They don’t fucking control me – you go ask them why wouldn’t you support London because she don’t do what the hell I tell her to do.  I don’t do what no motherfucking body tells me to do.”

Hey, you think maybe she’s been watching YouTube, just a little?

Hey, you know, the two times when Mayor Ed Lee did a little independent thinking since Willie Brown and Rose Pak got him appointed Mayor are when he appointed the fairly stupid Christina Olague to replace Ross Mirkarimi and when he advocated for the complete non-starter “stop and frisk program.”

Perhaps he should just do what he’s told 100% of the time instead of 90% of the time?

*The northeastern part of D5, one presumes.

San Francisco Resident/Astronaut Scares the World – Global Cooling, A New Ice Age?

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

It seems there’s a little black spot on the sun today. It’s the same old thing as yesterday.

That’s very disconcerting to San Francisco resident Phil Chapman, a geophysicist who was the first Australian to become a NASA astronaut. You see, we need more of those little spots on El Sol so things don’t get too frosty. He actually wants you to pray for more sunspots.

That’s right, forget global warming - an ice age is coming and the only question is when it will get here.

Hang in there little doggy, there’s a chance Philip K Chapman is wrong.
