Your Citizens Redistricting Commission is avoiding San Francisco County (and Marin and San Mateo and Santa Clara, for some reason, for now, anyway) so you’ll have to hoof it over to Oaktown if you want to give them your 2 cents before they have the chance to turn California’s electoral districts upside-down.

And actually, they have a whole state tour going on these days. Deets below.

Spotting an All-Electric ZAP Xebra Microcar on the Streets of San Francisco

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Well, here it is, straight-outta-Shandong, it’s a three-wheeled ZAP! Xebra all-electric car / motorcycle.

Now, one of the things you should know by now is to never trust anything said by anybody from an electric car company. (Sometimes they’ll lie to you on purpose and sometimes they’ll lie to you inadvertently.) Anyway, I’ll let Wiki take over now – seems as if Santa Rosa-based ZAP! has more than it’s fair share of issues.

Recently seen on Market Street:

Take a look at the video of a Xebra on Sloat from the Cat Snuggler - this could be the same exact vehicle.

Let’s hope the range is over 15 miles per charge IRL for the newer models.

Wow! You can even buy them on the craigslist.

Keep a look out.

“USF Steps Up” Program Offers Half-Price Tuition to Visiting Students at Regional Campuses

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

Did you know that the University of San Francisco has satellite campuses in Cupertino, San Ramon, Santa Rosa, and Sacramento*? (I didn’t.) Anyway, the Jesuits are riding to the rescue for students “trapped” by the University of California and California State University, or something like that. Read all about it:

USF has stepped up to offer select courses to Californians at its regional campuses and we’ve lowered tuition more than 50% for these courses. The courses are offered through USF Steps Up, a new program to help non-USF students trapped by the devastating budget cuts at California’s public universities and give them the classes they need to graduate.

“The University of San Francisco is committed to California’s students and is swinging open its doors in Cupertino, San Ramon, Santa Rosa, and Sacramento to help students fulfill their General Education (GE) coursework. Classes start January 25th and federal student aid may be available for eligible students attending other area universities.

USF’s main campus as it appears when Sausalito has Fourth of July fireworks:

“For over 150 years the University of San Francisco has excelled at educating California’s students. In these tough times, we hope to serve your educational needs as well. Come learn with our excellent faculty at one of our regional campuses.

What: Transferable General Education courses for spring semester 2010
When: January 25 – May 13, 2010
Where: Cupertino, San Ramon, Santa Rosa, and Sacramento
How: Attend USF as a visiting student
How much: Tuition is $560 a unit for classes in the USF Steps Up program

‘USF Steps Up’ to Offer Half Price Courses

Response to California’s Budget and Education Crisis

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 15 — The University of San Francisco, a private Jesuit university, will offer a limited number of general education courses for half price at its regional campuses starting in January 2010. The courses are offered through USF Steps Up, a new program to help non-USF students trapped by the devastating budget cuts at California’s public universities and give them the classes they need to graduate.

Budget cuts at the University of California and California State University systems have resulted in layoffs, course reductions, and higher fees and left students scrambling for classes, many of which have been cancelled. “I’ve heard heartbreaking stories from my colleagues at state schools,” says Jennifer Turpin, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of San Francisco.  “Students are begging to get into classes, but they can’t graduate because they can’t get the classes they need. We realized we could help these students and California by offering these classes at our regional campuses, where USF already has a presence.”

Buy Red Rock Island – Most Northern Part of San Francisco is Just $22,000,000

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

[UPDATE: The San Francisco Mission District's always-excellent Mission Mission has all the new deets. And welcome, all you FilePile visitors. I see you! Also, I Know What You Did Last Summer.]

This is your chance to own beautiful Red Rock Island, now listed for just $22 million by Santa Rosa’s Steven Higbee. Imagine owning your own private Alcatraz! Per the shill:

“…the ONLY privately held island in the San Francisco Bay….out of the fog belt just south of the San Rafael/ Richmond Bridge…six acres, 175 feet high…views spectacular…just eight miles to Fisherman’s Wharf…” 

From the Richmond San Rafael Bridge:

If you lived here, you’d be home by now 

You want. Make an offer why not? You’d only have to sell 38,000 shares at current valuations. Then you’d be a part of history and NPR would want to put you on the FM radio too.

What’s in it for you? Well, you could try to develop it.  Might be a bit of a hassle dealing with three different counties but think of all the manganese you’d be able to sell after you’re done leveling the island with dynamite or something. You’d make big bucks.

Plus, they’ll probably even throw in the island’s home page to sweeten the deal. The website has all the photos you’d want of your new home

Perché no?
