Here’s Why People at This Train Station in Japan Don’t Fall / Get Pushed Onto the Tracks – Could MUNI / BART Afford This?Friday, January 8th, 2016
Here’s how things look in Japan in 2016 at a nothingburger, random train station:
What do you call these, pocket doors?
Hey BART! Are you up to speed on this?
Imagine installing these automatic safety doors at just one station, like at Powell. It would be an implementation nightmare, just saying.
(OTOH, those cool-looking exposed bulb chandeliers, well putting those into a BART would be a snap…)
Anyway, hop to it BART/MUNI – get on this, like stat.
Sure looks that way:
How Do Thieves Break Your Car Windows Quietly on the Streets of San Francisco? With Tiny Ninja Rocks!Wednesday, March 13th, 2013
Has it been ten years since Ninja Rocks have been enshrined in our California Criminal Code? Yes!
Celebrate by breaking into cars this year, as people are already doing on McAllister Street right near City Hall.
But don’t use a hammer to get car booty. Hammers are heavy.
Use ninja rocks to break windows instead. (They’re super light so they’re easy to carry around.)

“SAN FRANCISCO CLOTHING COMPANY REINVENTS THE ORIGINAL BLUE JEAN FOR YOUR SMARTPHONE: DELTA415
It’s Time to Change Your Pants: Alphyn Industries Launches the Delta415 Premium Jeans
(June – 2012) – Tech-fashion brand, Alphyn Industries has launched a new line of premium denim, which will revolutionize the way consumers interact with their smartphones. The Delta415 Premium Jeans are made of advanced materials designed to improve 21st century urban lifestyle. The stylishly intuitive smart jean is the latest product in the WEARCOM™ line. The WEARCOM™ technology gives the wearer the ability to use a smart device within the garment without physically holding it.
The patented Wearcom™ pocket (3 x 5 inch / 7.6 x 12.7cm) is made of durable polymer film to allow for complete interactivity with any touch screen device. A buttonhole above the genuine leather film edge opens into the front pocket for threading headphones/mic wire into right pant pocket. The zippered pocket cover provides a discrete look, secure and easy retrieval, and full usability of the smartphone while sitting down.
The Jeans are handmade in San Francisco, California, the heartland of Silicon Valley and the birthplace of blue jeans. They are made from 100% cotton denim and organic cotton pockets. The dedicated device pocket gives the wearer’s smartphone the safe functional home it deserves as the wearer navigates the urban stratosphere and makes things happen.
“We test and use the best materials because we know it is what our customers expect” said, Ben Raviv, CEO of Alphyn. Alphyn draws on the tradition of bringing military technologies to the public and redefining civilian culture.
Inspired by the fighter pilots’ G-suit, which has custom straps and pockets for a map clipboard and notes attached to their thigh during flight, Alphyn developed unique pocket configurations, which hold smart devices, and allows the wearer to interact with their device without the need to hold it. The goals are to make living safer, and to make everyday clothing stylish, protective, functional and user friendly, and merging advanced mobile gear with everyday clothing to accommodate our communication culture.
Industries is located in San Francisco, the birthplace of blue jeans and the silicone chip. Alphyn manufactures its clothes locally, reflecting the Bay Area’s culture of backyard Silicone Valley tech giants like Apple, Google, Zynga and eBay, combined with the rich fashion tradition of LEVIS, Dockers, GAP, and The North Face, who have reshaped classic American fashion.
Testing the best materials available, from space age silver coated, nylon cotton knits to denim woven on vintage looms; Alphyn uses the most advanced materials to produce its products. Alphyn bridges the gap between communication, safety, and fashion, and to offer its customers timeless design and style with avant-garde technologies and quality American craftsmanship.
We are Alphyn Industries, join the technological apparel revolution!

Cheeky little devil!
This whole issue concerning the soccer fields in the west end of Golden Gate Park is your classical what-do-we-want-to-do-with-our-land conflict that has your nature lovers squaring off against your soccer players.
There’s lots to consider – migrating birds, soccer injuries, lighting up the night sky near Ocean Beach, and the budget ‘n stuff.
This hawk was able to capture and eat two pocket gophers in the space of about five minutes in Golden Gate Park the other day.
We’d probably be overrun with gophers by now if it weren’t for our hungry hawks.
Yet another serving of roditore carpaccio:
