Here’s the news, from a couple days back.
Let’s start with Hastings.
Here’s the reaction:
“Rankings Update: US News & World Report 2015
US News & World Report magazine has released its annual rankings of institutions of higher education. UC Hastings remains among the top law schools in the nation, with a reputation score on par with the top 25 from lawyers, judges, and peers. In “Law Specialties,” UC Hastings ranked #12 in Dispute Resolution and #25 in Clinical Training. Nevertheless, our overall rank has moved from #48 to #54.”
And this is from a year ago:
“Rankings Update: US News & World Report 2014
Last night, US News & World Report magazine released its annual rankings of institutions of higher education. UC Hastings remains among the top fifty law schools, tied with several others at #48. UC Hastings programs also rank in the top tier of “Law Specialties” this year, including Dispute Resolution at #9, Tax Law at #17, and Clinical Training at #27.”
And this isn’t from Hastings, but it touches on some relevant issues. From two years back:
Now on to University of San Francisco School of Law:
“Tonight’s Town Hall Meeting is at 5pm in Room 100, Dean Trasvina will be discussing the rankings news; however, the majority of the meeting will be Q&A. Please attend and share your thoughts on the state of the law school, programming ideas you may have, curriculum changes you want to see, or anything else you have on your mind. The Q&A should start around 5:15/5:20, so if you have class until 5:20 you will still have an opportunity to be heard.”
I imagine this situation is like having a twelve-month headache and thinking, upon awakening, oh yeah, the headache, the constant, nagging headache I gotta deal with…
Well, read it and weep, San Francisco. University of California, Hastings College of Law, which used to be a Top 20* law school, is now out of the Top 50, per the US News:
51. Baylor University (+3)
51. Penn State University (+13)
51. University of Richmond (+2)
54. Pepperdine University (+7)
54. UC Hastings (-6)
54. University of Connecticut (+4)
54. University of Nebraska—Lincoln (+7)
RNP. San Francisco (five-way tie at #144 last year with Duquesne, South Texas, Memphis, and Suffolk)
And RNP stands for Rank Not Published.
*It was in the teens for a bit of the 1990′s.
You tell me, babe, is this official?
Sure looks official
How’s the attendance these days? I don’t know, actually.
What’s that, they’re promoting it through new channels, they’re still doing outreach for it even after it’s begun?
Here’s the question, how much does it cost to, as they say, Learn To Code?
General Assembly @GA Feb 13 Struggling to teach yourself to code? Apply now to our intensive 3-month web development program in SF: https://cards.twitter.com/cards/2tg4az/5ah …
And here’s the answer, 11,500 didgeridoos:
OUCH! Isn’t that a lot? That’s like $200 a day.
I don’t know, if I were a cranky middle-aged bloggger barely off food stamps and without a colledge diploma, you know, still hoping to make some big score, you know, chasing venture paper like what Twitter get, sick of arguing with white dudes on the Internet, well maybe coding class could turn things around for me. I mean, cooking school was big in the aughts and a lot of people paid $50k to earn what turned out to be worthless diplomas. Are coding schools the same thing? I don’t know. What I DO know is that four years ago, you could sign up for similar courses (like GIRLS CAN CODE! or something) for free. And then, most of the people who attended were placed into jobs soon after “graduation.” That would have been a good thing for lots of people to do.
But these days? I don’t know.
“A tiger team is a group of experts assigned to investigate and/or solve technical or systemic problems. A 1964 paper defined the term as “a team of undomesticated and uninhibited technical specialists, selected for their experience, energy, and imagination, and assigned to track down relentlessly every possible source of failure in a spacecraft subsystem.”
So our school district employees drive around the 415 to put the beat down on noncompliant handicapped ramps and whatnot?
Yes, yes they do.

But why doesn’t the van have tiger stripes painted on the side? This seems like a missed opportunity…
I’ll tell you, do you know how many residents put up signs to support using taxpayer money to decrease capacity on Masonic Avenue?
None, zero, nada.
But people on Masonic seem to love putting up signs going against the plan to take out 100-something parking spaces.
I don’t know why the electeds who voted for this project would change their minds now – it seems only a lawsuit* could have any effect at this point.
The windmill tilting continues – this sign looks homemade:
You can’t fight City Hall, right?
*And even then, I don’t see how you’d win.
Now myself, sure, I train pilots, from time to time, who doesn’t? But I ain’t no professional.
I’m not like these guys. They’re pros:
However, the Yelp reviews couldn’t be worse, so there you go…
Or so it would seem:

The other space shuttle ended up being a jobs program, as predicted…
Usually when people run in the corrupt Twitterloin / Civic Center / Tenderloin area, it’s because they’re either victims or perpetrators, right?
So just jogging around for fun, well, that’s something new I think.
