I’ve never seen this:
“T3 Motion” Electric Standup Vehicle from Challenge Security.
They’re hiring, but you need your own gun.
“Affected members of the UC Hastings Public Safety officer’s unit have been presented various employment options if they meet required qualifications, as police officers, security guards, or security guard supervisors for the UCSF Police Department. For officers who do not qualify (or elect to not apply) for jobs with the UCSF Police Department or alternative positions with UC Hastings, the College will offer conscientious separation terms.”
So that’s that – the oldest and largest law school in the West is now a little closer to the UC Family.

(And consider that the Zuckerbergs paid $10 mil.)
“3442 21st St,

Experience the pinnacle of San Francisco living – be inspired by bridge-to-bridge views from this trophy property atop the Liberty Hill Historic District.

The home is detached on 3 sides providing abundant light and a serene sense of openness to each of the units. The top 2 floors feature over-sized, light-filled rooms, hardwood floors, crown molding, and wood burning fireplaces. A lush rear garden, abundant storage, workshop and parking for 3 cars finish this home perfectly. Located at the crest of Fair Oaks, the home is dramatic from the entry facade to the panoramic views from each level

I don’t know, man:
And yes, that’s a real security guard, locked and loaded for bear.
And when I say infamous, I mean this flash mob thing from aught-ten.
And, oh yes, no photos allowed, of course.
I just don’t know, man…
Here you go, start here.
And now check it out:
Is that a legal space? Nope.
Now let’s talk window tinting for the driver and front passenger windows.
Just raising the issue.
Looks pretty dark to me.
OTOH, he _did_ just buy naming rights at SFGH – so those are your pros and cons…
Sometimes, when you have a sidearm, all you need to do is grab your belt buckle and lean against somethin’.
The Man With No Name, at the West End of the Haight-Ashbury:
At the current time, there are handguns all over the intersection of Haight and Stanyan. Whole Foods has always had a large security crew here (some armed, some not, one supposes) and starting the past couple months or so, the McDonalds across the street now once again has an armed guard.
Do you think that’s groovy, Man?
Anyway, this is how things stand during the Summer of 2015
Click on “Lease Now” to see this:
“*To reserve your new home, please click the “Get Approved” button above to complete our rental application and start the screening process. You will be required to submit a payment of $35.00 for the non-refundable Application Fee and the Security Deposit of $500-$1000 for the apartment is due within 72 hours by drop off or overnight mail. After three days from the date of application, the Security Deposit is non-refundable.”
Well, first off, “home.” Like, it’s not even a condo, man. How about “apartment” instead?
And second off, I ain’t never paid no nonrefundable application fee. What you do is ask how much the credit / eviction check costs them and then offer to pay that. If that’s a no-go, then perhaps you shouldn’t move in? (I realize that building employees have to deal with flaky people all the time, but I’m not the flaky people category, I don’t think.*)
What really grinds my gears is the idea of any building manager talking about any kind of “non-refundable” deposit. Such a deposit does not exist under California law.
(m) “No lease or rental agreement may contain a provision characterizing any security as “nonrefundable.”
You want to quibble? Fine, quibble, but this non-refundable status is agin the law, agin the law I tells you!
Most people in Cali can market apartments without prima facie violations of Cali law. So why can’t you, 100 Van Ness? Why can’t you?
Oh what’s that, what’s $35 to somebody who thinks moving into the Outer Twitterloin at $4000 for a one-bedroom is a good idea? All right, well, maybe it’s not a good idea to move into this building. Realize that most of the non-BMR people are probably not going to renew after their first year (just like at the abysmal “luxury” Fillmore Center apartments near Japantown, where you can pay thousands and thousands per month in rent, and for what). So, why are so many people going to move out of 100 VN after just a year? Think on that. Part of the reason might have to do with dealing with the 20-somethings in “building management.” Are they going to come in and say, uh oh, you walked on our cheap, brand-new hardwood flooring in high heels so here’s a bill for $7,000 for reflooring? Maybe. (Stuff like that happens just around the corner of 100VN all the time.) And there’s the nabe, which might wear you down over the months. OTOH, maybe this building is a dream come true for you, right next to Van Ness Station and not too far from the Civic Center BART Station. Fine, be my guest. Enjoy. But the same 20-something chicas who don’t understand why it’s not kosher to expropriate four-figure “Security Deposits” in the Great State of California just might not be aware of all the other laws what protect you.
Oh, what’s that, it’s OK to retain a “holding deposit?” Well, we aren’t at that point yet, because you all labeled it a “Security Deposit.” I’m now satisfied that you all don’t know what you’re doing. Welcome to Cali, 100VN Management. It’s going to be a bumpy ride…
END OF LINE
*Like the last time I bought a car, I didn’t even test drive it. No salesperson neither – the “big guy” had to assign a salesperson to me at the end of the sales process in order to “get the transaction to go through.” This sales process took about seven minutes. Later on, the salesperson had to “orient” me. I asked for the 30-second version of his 20-minute spiel. It was basically this: “Never press this button.” And I’ll tell you, that was good advice. I had already figured the downsides of pressing the button and if I hadn’t, then I would have figured things out fast, like during the times that I pressed that button by mistake. In any event, what he meant was, never press this button unless you know what it does and the conditions are right for it. The point is that I’m not a flake so I never pay no nonrefundable application fee and you shouldn’t either. Sometimes, like back during Dot Com 1 in the late ’90’s, landlords would harvest thousands of dollars in application fees for just one unit over one weekend. Did the LLs actually run the checks potential tenants paid for? Nope. That’s what made it a scam. A nice, four-figure, income tax-free scam. These days, they charge you $35 to run a check that costs them even less than before, like a few bucks max. Oh well.
