All the deets:
“Panel Discussion on Race and Policing
September 28, 2016
3:30 – 5:00 pm
UC Hastings College of the Law
Louis B. Mayer Lounge
198 McAllister Street
In the last few years, a series of tragic incidents raised public attention to a serious crisis of trust between police departments and the communities they serve, particularly communities of color and of low income. These incidents have led to vocal riots and to the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, leading to violent clashes between activists and police officers. What are the roots of this crisis? How can racialized practices in policing be understood and addressed? What is being done, and what should be done, to heal the broken trust between the police and the community? This panel on Race & Policing will feature voices of activists, police officers, lawyers, community-relations officials, and academics, in an effort to tackle these important questions.

It’s hard to tell these days, in the 94117.
Like at first, back in 2012, I thought Lyft was just a bunch of hipsters with giant pink mustaches on their cars.
So who knows what this guy is up to…
If you asked actual people who live in SF what “experience” they’d like to have next, very few would say an “NFL Experience” and nobody, I mean absolutely nobody, would say an NFL Experience Driven By Hyundai.
When will Levi’s Stadium become so old-fashioned that it’ll get imploded? Pretty soon…
[UPDATE: Herb Caen eventually recanted re: the Frisco Issue – see Comments. Or here’s the short version:“Balderdash,” Caen wrote. “The toughest guys on the old S.F. waterfront, neither rubes nor tourists, called it Frisco, and no effete journalist would have tried to correct them.”]
“Person that comes to your house to remove your used AA batteries because you’re too lazy to ‘dispose of them properly.'”
Here you go – they’ll come right to your place for pickup if you put your used batteries in a baggie:
“Curbside Battery Recycling Service – Most residents may place their batteries in a sealed plastic bag taped to the top of their black bin for curbside collection.”
This baggie system is news to me, as I’m accustomed to the Big Orange Bucket:
“Residents of multi-unit homes (4 units or more) should place batteries in their Orange Battery Bucket. If your building does not have one, ask your building manager to order one at (415) 330-1300. For more information on battery recycling, please visit: SFEnvironment.org/ecofinder
So who says our local garbage monopoly is all bad?
*As opposed to the actual Elon Musk. I’ll tell you, BEM is much cheaper for us than the real deal:
Here’s the new SFMTA MUNI bus ad from OneLessThingSF:
Oh, and there’s craigslist too.
On It Goes in start-uplandia…
As seen on Lincoln out west in San Francisco County:
Somebody might have been using this mattress to sleep on in Golden Gate Park – I can’t tell.
This might be the RPD parks and recreation people – I can’t tell. (The Recology garbage monopoly people use hydraulics for a streetside summary execution of the box springs* they find.)
Another thing I can’t tell is the difference betwixt San Francisco’s legitimate mattress removal scheme vs. the process of simply wrestling your old bed** downstairs and throwing it down on the sidewalk in front of your door. I think you’re supposed to tell them your address and put the letters RMJ (Remove My Junk) on your unwanted booty.
I’ll look it up when and if the time comes…
*If you wanted to sell me** a box spring, I’d ask you what does it do and how am I going to eventually going to get rid of it. Oh, you say its job is to “support the mattress?” Uh, the same way the a hardwood floor might similarly “support” a mattress? And then people put a sheet of plywood in between the box spring and the mattress for “more support?” So I ask how does the mattress even know what’s under the plywood? Box springs are a scam, man!
**This is an option, a foam bed, on sale, from the Costco.com – SPONSORED LINK, SURPRISE! No, no, just kidding, Gentle Reader. I wouldn’t TBI you like that. Anyway, UPS delivers the box and you say, well, that’s a small box, and then you cut it open and the thing expands and unfolds like a US Navy life raft. Now some people say that foam mattresses are too warm at night, you know, for Frisco. YMMV
