Radio Bilingüe will convene and broadcast a bilingual public forum on Violence and the Human Rights Crisis in Mexico on Tuesday January 27 from 7-9pm PST at the Mission Cultural Center in San Francisco. Featured guests will be renowned Mexican poet and author Homero Aridjis and a group of respected U.S. based Latino intellectuals and artists known as Los Macarturos - recipients of prestigious MacArthur Foundation Fellowships. Leaders of Mexican and human rights organizations from Northern California and the public are also invited to attend and contribute to the dialogue. According to human rights watchdogs, Mexico is facing the worst human rights crisis since 1968. The recent disappearance of 43 rural students at the hands of Mexican police has detonated months of unprecedented and massive protests in and out of Mexico. The two-hour forum conducted in Spanish and English will be broadcast live on the Radio Bilingüe national public radio network (also streamed live at radiobilingue.org) and will be rebr ...

Do the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one? I guess that depends on what many you are group in with. In a penal situation, do the needs of the many rapist's, thug's, and serial killer'ss outweigh the needs of the guards? How do you contrast the needs of Northern California with the Needs of the I-80 Corridor, Oregon, with the needs of San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Silicon Valley?
Yosemite Lunch Walk 174 Again I say to The Weatherman: "46°? Then how do we have ice and frost?" It's definitely in the 25°-30° temperature range today in Yosemite Valley, as evidenced by two of these iPhone images. All four pictures were taken near the center of Cook's Meadow this afternoon. The landmark images are Half Dome with a rising moon on the upper right, and North Dome with the tufts of tall grass in Cook's Meadow on the lower left. The other two are the frozen (as in less than 32°, thank you) leaves on the ground. This will be my last Yosemite post for a week, as I will be departing for Santa Clara tomorrow to shoot the Foster Farms Bowl at Levis Stadium: Maryland vs Stanford. Then I'm driving up the Northern California Coast through San Francisco, Point Reyes, Bodega Bay, Mendocino and Fort Bragg before heading home on Sunday. I'll be posting images from the coast trip throughout the week. Happy New Year! Or, as my brother Richard would say, Happy Near You!
The Largest storm to hit Northern California in years has left about 100,000 San Francisco homes and businesses without power, closed roads and parks and cau...
WILD STORM TODAY By Martha Mendoza SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A powerful storm churned through Northern California on Thursday, knocking out power to tens of thousands and delaying commuters while soaking the region with much-needed rain. Throughout the Bay Area, waves slammed onto waterfronts, ferries were bound to their docks, many schools canceled classes and the gusting winds had motorists tightly gripping their steering wheels on the Golden Gate Bridge, where managers created a buffer zone to prevent head-on collisions by swerving cars. The iconic suspension bridge is engineered to swing in cross winds, and engineers were standing by, but "the concern we have right now is more about vehicles," spokeswoman Priya David Clemens said. In Santa Cruz, about an hour south of San Francisco, an elementary school student was trapped for about 15 minutes when an 80-foot tree fell on him, pinning his arm and shoulder until rescuers with chain saws cut it apart. He was taken to a hospital in good condition but likely ...

From Pablo Sandoval"s standpoint it actually makes perfect sense that he is leaving San Francisco for Boston. Wait, you say, how could a man revered through Northern California as the loveable Panda, the lynchpin of a three_time World Series champion? It's like this. SF only offered him 3 years for 40 million in Spring Training, he was insulted, played terribly for the first month while the Giants silently (contract_wise) watched and his days were numbered as a Giant at that time. Then, he goes all legend on us, leads the Giants down the stretch, into the postseason and is hailed as a conquering hero like Buster and Bumgarner, appreciated every minute of the World Series and the parade. And now he will receive a $100 million reward over 5 years from ANOTHER legendary team in a great American city in Boston. He will be embraced by the fans of Massachusetts, will team with Big Papi in crushing balls all over Fenway Park. Panda hats are probably being bought up as I write this. I have read reports that Bosto ...
Grace Carpenter Hudson (1865–1937) was an American painter. She was nationally known during her lifetime for a numbered series of more than 684 portraits of the local Pomo Indians. She painted the first, "National Thorn", after her marriage in 1891, and the last in 1935. Grace Carpenter was born in Potter Valley, California. Her mother was one of the first white school teachers educating Pomo children and was a commercial portrait photographer in Ukiah, California; her father was a skilled panoramic and landscape photographer who chronicled early Mendocino County frontier enterprises such as logging, shipping and railroading.[1] At fourteen years of age, Grace was sent to attend the recently established San Francisco School of Design, an art school which emphasized painting from nature rather than from memory or by copying existing works. At sixteen, she executed an award-winning, full length, life sized self-portrait in crayon. While in San Francisco, she met and eloped with a man fifteen years her sen ...

Throwback ALC 2014 Day 0 82.5 Miles. June 1st, 2014. Seeing the riders off on their first leg from the Cow Palace to Santa Cruz. The cyclists ride out immediately following Opening Ceremonies. The route on Day 1 offers some of the best scenery and cycling roads that San Mateo County has to offer. The stunning coastal views from hilltops to the ocean are truly Northern California at its best! Tailwinds prevail as the cyclists pedal along scenic CA Hwy 1 on their way to camp. A very early morning with little sleep after getting back to San Francisco from a wedding in the Sacramento Delta the previous evening. Up in time for the registration and safety video presentation at 4.00am. When we arrived the place was pretty deserted but as time went on it filled to bursting and bustled with all the cyclists, roadies and volunteers awaiting Opening Ceremonies. The newly acquired T-shirts from the Traffic Team captain, Steve, were donned to see the riders out. For us Traffic Roadies those neon yellow T-shirts were t ...

The Earthquake in Northern California, not along the San Adreas fault, riched 6.1 and there is a better than 54% chance that it will produce another quake of 5.0 or better this week. This Earthquake was superseded only by the quake that brought down the Expressway and approach to the bridge in 1989. 106,000 felt the shock waves over a large swath of land below San Francisco where the epicenter was located. Another quake followed the first one and registered a 3.1 on the Richter. More expected to come over the next seven days!
Thank you for everyone's concern this morning. After looking it up out of curiosity the earthquake was in Northern California by San Francisco. That's too far away from me to feel anything. Luckily from what I've seen everyone up there are ok, just structural damage.
Northern California earthquake. Nothing major in San Francisco. It was light shake as people continue to sleep through it.
SHOCKING! Actor Robin Williams Found Dead At Home In Apparent Suicide... Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams was found dead on Monday from an apparent suicide at his home in Northern California, Marin County Sheriff’s Office said. He was 63. Williams, who introduced his frenetic style on late 1970s TV series “Mork & Mindy” and had struggled with addiction in the past, had entered a Minnesota rehabilitation center last month to help him maintain sobriety. His representatives at the time said Williams was not using drugs or alcohol but had gone to the center to “fine-tune and focus” his sobriety after working a longer-than-usual schedule. The Marin County Sheriff’s office said it received an emergency call about noon local time on Monday, saying that Williams was unconscious and not breathing at his home near Tiburon, north of San Francisco. The sheriff’s coroner’s division said it suspects the death was a suicide due to asphyxia, but the cause of death is still under investigati ...
I am so very sorry to be learning of the death of Robin Williams. Obvious genius. Gentle man. This is bringing back memories. I had the good fortune to get to interview Robin Williams for his movie "Mrs. Doubtfire," many many Years Ago (I still remember being drawn to the scenes of San Francisco in the film) along with his then wife, Marsha Garces, who was co-producer of the film. They were together for over 20 years, and the young children they had together are over 20 now. Of course, his voicing of the Genie in "Aladdin" pretty much made everyone's career who was covering that movie for Disney back in 1993 - our interviews with everyone on the film other than Robin Williams (he wasn't there for that particular junket) sold everywhere, including People Magazine and Entertainment Weekly. I remember it like it was yesterday. I always remembered thinking in the back of my mind, how fortunate we were to have this comedic genius in our midst, as falling back into his addictions was always just a step away. Ga ...
Ok.let's get a look at the satellite imagery. It is showing us in the water vapor image that the low is exactly where it was thought it was going to be. Right off San Francisco. In that position, that would tend to keep the majority of the action focused south of Douglas County. This means that in Oregon, Curry, Josephine, Jackson, Klamath, and Lake Counties will be more at risk for storms today. In Northern California ALL the counties in the extreme upper part of Northern California are at risk. That includes Del Norte County and Crescent City this time. Humboldt County including Arcata, and Eureka are also at risk. The second picture is the visible satellite shot just taken. We already have convective clouds building and they are moving to the west right now. In dry lightning scenarios, once clouds start building, it is amazing just how fast they can tower up and start putting down lightning. If you can see clouds to your east...they are coming at you and now is when you need to be vigilant.

Below is the press release regarding Chinese students from the neighboring province of our sister city. How exciting to have them here. Chinese Students Enjoying Visit to CSU Stanislaus Jerry Zeng is a third-year finance student with an infectious smile and — for a native of China making his first visit to the United States — a strong grasp of the English language. That smile was in abundance this week as Zeng discussed his observations of life in America. “It’s awesome,” he said. “We always make everything so serious in our country. Having fun is important.” Zeng is one of 13 students from Hubei University of Economics who are in the midst of a two-week stay at CSU Stanislaus, where they are living in the university’s residence halls and attending classes in finance and American culture and language. The students, joined by two Hubei faculty chaperones, are also enjoying quite a bit of fun — from movie nights and shopping to a Modesto Nuts baseball game and trips to San Francisco and Yo ...

We arrived safe and sound in Batumi for our meeting. It was a wonderful time of sharing testimonies, Q&A and relationship building. Leaders included Head of Pentecostal and Word of Life pastors in the Ajar Region of Georgia. I think what surprised most of them was that I was just a regular guy trying to help. That was actually not a negative to them but a positive. Apparently many believers, they think they must do something huge or be ordained to act upon ones vision for the world. Well this is my best impression and knowledge of what went on. We are off for breakfast and we have all been asked to speak at service today. Pastor wants us to share our testimonies and Benny has been asked to sing. Nervous but excited at the same time :). FYI, this city is amazing and the country in this region feels like Northern California and San Francisco. I had no idea what this place looked like and I was taken by surprise as was all of us. Enjoy the pics and yes that is a replica of the roman colosseum!
Northern California is so beautiful. Had a blast. Drove from Redding to Crescent City where went salmon fishing on the ocean, played on beach, saw the red woods, went to Brookings Oregon. Saw a lot of beautiful country. Now back in Redding tomorrow heading for San Francisco for a few days.

It is absolutely beyond me that I am packing to move back to Northern California right now. 2014 started off super rocky for me, I was at a place where I just couldn't figure out what I was supposed to be doing or where I was supposed to be. Two weeks ago I started my New Job in LA and was so excited to move into my moms new place in Calabasas. Fast forward two weeks and I found myself sitting in an office in San Francisco waiting to start my interview for MAC. As I was sitting in the office overlooking the bay I thought to myself there was no way I would get the job. A few hours later I was signing all the papers for MAC. Seriously so insane that I've been blessed with two great jobs in such a short amount of time, I cannot wait to start my journey at MAC and cannot believe I'm coming back home. ❤️💄📦

I gotta say, after my two trips back to Northern California the last couple months, my attachment to my home has been refreshed after living here in New England for 15 years. So, this year the big family vacation blowout is in Destin, FL but I'm thinking next year it's a vacation home in San Francisco with side trips of course to the Wine Country and Yosemite.
I mean yes I do dream of Northern California cuz that's the place to be. Do you have San Francisco down there?

Watched "The Other Woman," which was funny. I was caught off guard by how much (and how soon?) Cameron Diaz aged! On another note, Leslie Mann has a noticeable fronted /s/.

Coincidentally, Stanford sociolinguist Rob Podesva gave a lecture here at Cornell yesterday about the fronted /s/ being a marker of *** male speech in Northern California, but heterosexuals who are *** friendly and progressive also have a fronted /s/

OK, after 34 years of living in Northern California, and having all my friends and family, especially my wife, Kathleen Ouimet Wesely, and son give me grief about being a Green Bay Packers fan, I have decided to convert and join the rest of the family and become a San Francisco 49ers fan. I will have to sell my 1 share of the Green Bay Packers that I paid $200 for. Any takers?
Flying out to San Francisco from Austin at the end of June for nine days of Napa, Redwoods, Family, and all that Northern California has to offer.
This is one taste treat that Bay Area residents celebrate throughout the year. Today is National Sour Dough Bread Day. French bakers brought sourdough techniques to Northern California during the Gold Rush and it has remained a San Francisco treat. I like mine served with a side of cold press virgin olive oil, crushed garlic and a splash of balsamic vinegar. One more reason to love the City by the Bay.
At 30 I loved l living in Austin but I realized I’d hardly traveled anywhere.  I took a job with a startup in the Bay Area (northern California to the rest of the world) and moved out there to live in a corporate apartment.  It was April and I didn’t bring a jacket or anything warm.  This was my first experience with the coldness of San Francisco.  Amazing city but awful weather.  More importantly there were only a handful of us to cover all of the accounts worldwide for the company and I didn’t shy away from traveling to help customers, attend conferences, or deliver trainings (one of my favorite things to do).  And they allowed me to spend extra time so these work trips were enjoyable personally.  Some of the highlights were Nice, Monaco, Bangalore, Singapore, Seoul, and Tokyo.   Traveling was wonderful but every time the plane started descending in Austin I knew I was coming home.  When the company asked me to move out to the Bay Area and accept a full time role I told them I’d like to ...
My friends ! I just received a new proposal to hold another Plein Air , but in California. Thus, if all fails, then I'll have two plain-air seminar .One in Michigan (see previous post ) , and the second in California. Now I just want to also conduct a survey of how many may be willing to come to this open-air . It may be in Northern California , near San Francisco . Time: late July - early August . Plein Air in Michigan will be in August. I guess , as well as in Michigan, to spend two Plein Air , one after another , seven days each group. Two groups . If someone wants to stay on the second Plein Air - please, I will not mind . The initiators of this idea are my friends: Tonya Zenin and Lilian Caldeira. For details of this project can be accessed to them, too . I think that this idea will be especially good for those who can not come to Michigan. It will be convenient for those who live in the west. For those who live closer to Michigan - it would be better to go there . Now Tony and Lillian will be looki ...

What a crazy week and a bitter sweet emotional roller coaster ride! Officially accepted an offer to join Cushman & Wakefield in San Francisco as Sr. Financial Analyst for their Northern California Financial Consulting Group, resigned from my first job out of college that taught me everything I know about real estate, and of course my bosses and coworkers who developed me personally and professionally over the past 2 years.

I'm on a plane back to Nashville after a few days in my previous home... San Francisco. Northern California is truly amazing. But, in Nashville, I feel much more involved in the culture and community in a city that's growing and evolving. Renovating 12th & Porter and adding technologic enhancements and creating Music City PIzza has been a labor of love. It's not easy launching a new project, but seeing the happiness it has given others brings great reward.
Excited to be up in Northern California this month. San Francisco on the 29th and then Redding on the 30th. Then, we go back home. :(

Another ReRun John, Charted at in 1970. The band first came to prominence in 1969 when rock impresario Bill Graham signed them after an audition and they played the Fillmore West in San Francisco. Pense has been compared to Janis Joplin, and it was Joplin who recommended the audition to Graham. The band has often been compared to another long-standing popular Northern California group, Tower Of Power, and like Tower Of Power they were rare in that they featured a horn section in addition to guitar, keyboards (usually featuring a Hammond organ and Leslie speaker), bass and drums. The Tower Of Power horn players have performed with Cold Blood on a regular basis since the early 1970s. Skip Mesquite and Mic Gillette have been members of both Tower Of Power and Cold Blood. Their fan base also overlaps with the Sons of Champlin, although their musical styles are quite different. Their initial four albums, Cold Blood (produced by David Rubinson), Sisyphus (produced by Fred Catero), First Taste of Sin (produced b ...
such a sad day. August 9,1995 Jerry Garcia, the 53-year-old guitarist and co-founder of the Grateful Dead, died today at a Northern California residential drug treatment center. The cause, according to authorities, was a heart attack. The Grateful Dead blended blues, rock, country and folk music with a dash of the psychedelic sound of the sixties counter-culture that grew out of their home base of San Francisco. Over three decades, the dead became one of the most popular concert draws in the world. Songs like "Truckin'," "Casey Jones," and "Friend of the Devil" were staples of album rock radio, yet the Grateful Dead only had one top ten hit, "Touch of Gray," in 1987. Nonetheless, they became a cultural phenomenon and almost a way of life for their fans, known as "Deadheads." Some followed them around the country, and many can boast of seeing hundreds of concerts. As one fan remembered, "You wanted to go to every show because you didn't know what would happen next. The records didn't necessarily convey tha ...
Happy 2014 West Aurora class of ’67! ( Class of ’68…… you too!) There seems to be a consensus that with every passing year we remain happy to be blessed with yet another year and wanting to make the most of what lies ahead. So it is with great excitement, your Bay Area classmates invite you to our first ever Northern California West Coast Reunion October 9 through 12, 2014.

October is warm and dry, ideal for a trip to Tahoe, a walk on the beach or anything in between. San Francisco is less than an hour from the Wine Country.

A high school in northern California just celebrated Black History Month in such a misguided way, it seems like they need education into black history. There should be a month for that . . . Earlier this week, the Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord, California decided to pay homage to Black History Month by serving a special lunch menu . . . featuring fried chicken, cornbread, and watermelon. Students and parents were OUTRAGED, and the principal of the school ended up apologizing. A professor at the University of San Francisco says the school apparently didn't realize that, quote, "Chicken, watermelon . . . these are stereotypes of black Southern culture that come from the same place the N-word comes from."

The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco was the only property in the city to make an appearance on AAA’s Five Diamonds list. / Ritz-Carlton San Francisco San Francisco may be a tourist favorite, but its hotels are falling short in travel rankings. The Ritz-Carlton is the only hotel in the city to make AAA’s exclusive Five Diamonds list for 2014 – and for that matter it’s the only one in coastal counties between Santa Barbara (Four Seasons Biltmore) and the Oregon border. Although most travelers are happy to stay at more affordable lodgings than the Five Diamonds contingent, it’s interesting to note that San Francisco also failed to nab more than one spot on the recently published Conde Nast Traveler’s Gold List of 200 U.S. hotels, nominated by readers. The St. Regis is the only S.F. hotel out of a whopping 36 from California, although the Bay Area and Northern California in general hav ...

Every year in late July. This strange and secretive group, which receives insignificant media coverage, has a giant statue of an owl as its central symbol. Each year, about 1,500 of the most influential U.S. government officials, financiers, industrialists, and media moguls gather to hear speeches, network, and share common agendas. They also perform pagan, complete with robes semelhanes ceremonies of the Ku Klux Klan, fire, incantations, and typical devices of satanic-pagan rituals. Many of the greatest leaders of this nation worship Satan, and are willing servants of evil. They are controlled by Satan, the god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4). Satan controls these men through the occult (ie, "hidden" organizations). Jesus said "in se ...

Once again, my fluffy puppets, I offer to those outside the tour area, signed firsts of my new book, The Serpent of Venice, to be released April 22nd. Mysterious Galaxy will ship to Canada and Europe as well, but I know, it's not going to be cheap. Sorry. Geography. I will get to Mysterious Galaxy on April 24th, I think, so the books should ship in the first week it's available. Books Inc will also have signed copies, but the link is still coming. Tour cities, as far as I know, are San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Tempe, Denver, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, New York, Boston, Washington D.C., Ann Arbor, Lansing, and Westchester, PA. More may be added, but not many. Perhaps Austin. No doubt a couple of Northern California gigs. If none of those are in driving distance for you, this would be the way to get a signed copy. If you're going to go this direction, order early, so they'll know how many books to have on hand when I get there. The Books Inc link will be up in a week or so.
Thanks so much to the ACLU of Northern California for hosting such a wonderful event for us in San Francisco on Saturday night! We are so grateful to our west coast friends who joined us for their generous support!
Christmas in a tube. Our first Christmas in Hawaii. We lived in Hawaii from 1972 to 1974. None the less, it was getting close to Xmas and without thinking I knew the price of a real tree would be about two to three times the price of a tree sold on the Mainland. We happened to be on the mainland either late November or early December 1972 in northern California. While there tree sales were just beginning. So, I had a brilliant idea. I went to a carpet store and found a large heavy duty paper tube which was used to roll carpet in. It was free, about five or six feet long, and six or eight inches across. Just right to stuff a Christmas tree down into. So, I bought a five foot Douglas fir and fit it in and capped the ends. Took it with us the next day to the San Francisco airport and then winged our way back to Honolulu with tree in tube. Got home in Aiea, set it up, and mamma, baby and me eventually had Christmas with a real tree and lived happily ever after. Fade to black.

3 Best Cities for Sellers Are In Northern California We're coming upon mid-December and knee deep in the holiday season. In many markets across the U.S., the past two years have been much better for sellers without a doubt. But this holiday season, sellers in our neck of the woods in Northern California sit in an incredibly fortunate place. A recent analysis of markets nationwide showed that the three best cities to sell your home right now are all in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. A local real estate and information company analyzed the 100 most populated cities in the country and highlighted Fremont, San Jose and San Francisco as the top three markets for home sellers. They based their analysis on much more than list price alone, looking at the number of homes on the market, average time it took to sell, crime rates, school quality, unemployment rates and median household incomes. With this mix of variables in mind, Fremont came out on top. The East Bay city has a median listing price of $640,000, wit ...

I love living in the city. Especially New York City. Everything you could ever want is at your fingertips. Culture, architecture, restaurants, night clubs. BUT it's missing some things very important to me. Quiet, fresh air, space to garden and raise livestock. Working with the earth, including solar & wind power, to provide most of my needs. Living off the grid is something I've dreamed of since I was a little boy. I've done it several times in my life (with other people, and under their terms) I spent time living in a small shack with my Father and 2 younger brothers, no electricity, wood heat & cooking, propane run refrigerator 16+ miles from town. I lived in the Redwoods of Northern California, at The Pigeon Point Lighthouse South of San Francisco, The Henry Miller House in Big Sur, and an Animal Sanctuary in the mountains of San Diego. I've lived in my van and also in SRO's. I've traveled cross country and surfed many a couch. I'm not done traveling nor am I ready to leave NYC anytime soon. Maybe I j ...

Dear San Francisco, I share a love hate relationship with the city by the bay. I root for the team in orange and black, I love the numerous restaurants and dining options that it has to offer and the tourist aspect of the area still fascinates me to this day. Things I hate about the city include; the bastion of hope that it holds towards liberalism, the plentiful number of panhandlers that flock to the city and continue to deteriorate it with filth and crime and most of all that *** smell! (You need to experience it because not even this literary genius can put into words the exact way to describe it). But you know what?.Sometimes you just get it right.

Alright, I will play along ... The 10 Things That You May Not Know About Me 1. When I was five years old, I decided that I was going to be a Harlem Globetrotter. So, I played basketball for at least an hour each day and laid out in the sun, so that I may be “tan” like Medowlark Lemon and Curly Neal, my two favorite players. I had the best tan in kindergarten. 2. I was born in a Salvation Army hospital in Flushing, New York and I was nearly named Arthur Edward Robertson, III, since I was born on my deceased grandfather’s birthday. 3. I was in Shea Stadium watching the Mets play the Cubs the night of the great New York City Black Out on July 13, 1977, which was also during the Summer of Sam. After the lights went out, the kids a few rows back broke out a joint and the Mets took “fake” infield by the lights of cars which pulled into the outfield. 4. I grew up in Northern California, in the San Francisco Bay Area. The fields, ranches, orchards and farms which my brothers and I played in are now ...

On this 23rd day of Filipino American History Month, did you know that Judge Ronald Quidachay was the first Filipino American appointed as a judge in Northern California? In 1983, then California Governor Jerry Brown appointed Quidachay to the San Francisco Superior Municipal Court. A native San Franciscan, Quidachay has spent his entire career in the City. As an undergraduate student at San Francisco State University, he was active in student politics, co-founding the Pilipino American Collegiate Endeavor (PACE). The group took part in the school's infamous riots in 1968 that led to a strike and the closing of the SFSU campus for a month. Quidachay also was involved in efforts to establish both SFSU's College of Ethnic Studies and te Educational Opportunity Program (EOP). After receiving his law degree from UC Berkeley's Boalt Hall School of Law 1973, Quidachay took a job with the San Francisco Neighborhood Legal Assistance Foundation. Three Years Later, he joined the San Francisco district attorney's of ...

The San Francisco 49ers are a professional American football team based in San Francisco, California, playing in the West Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The team was founded in 1946 as a charter member of the All-America Football Conference (AAFC) and joined the NFL in 1949 after the two leagues merged. When owned by the DeBartolo / York families, the 49ers became known for having one of the NFL's greatest dynasties, winning five Super Bowl championships in just 14 years, between 1981 and 1994, with four of those championships in the 1980s. The Super Bowl teams were led by Hall of Famers Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Ronnie Lott, Steve Young, and coach Bill Walsh. With five Super Bowl wins, the 49ers are tied with rivals Dallas Cowboys for the second-most Super Bowl wins. The name "49ers" comes from the name given to the gold prospectors who arrived in Northern California around 1849 during the California Gold Rush. The name was suggested to reflect th ...
Of the 204 new waivers from President Barack Obama’s health care law the administration approved in April, 38 are for fancy eateries, hip nightclubs, and decadent hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s Northern California district. That’s in addition to the 27 new waivers for health care or drug companies and the 31 new union waivers Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) approved. Pelosi’s district secured almost 20 percent of the latest issuance of waivers nationwide, and the companies that won them didn’t have much in common with companies throughout the rest of the country that have received Obamacare waivers. Common waiver recipients include labor union chapters, large corporations, financial firms, and local governments. Pelosi’s district’s waivers are the first major examples of luxurious gourmet restaurants and hotels getting a year-long pass from Obamacare.

Have you ever noticed the weight that New York, New Jersey and California have on the Supreme Court of the United State of America? 4 justices are from New York. 2 are from New Jersey. 2 are from Northern California (Sacramento and San Francisco). and 1 from Georgia. I am from Arkansas. My culture is totally contrary to the culture of New York, New Jersey, and California. MY CULTURE IS NOT REPRESENTED IN THE Supreme Court. The one conservative that voted against the DOMA is from CA. Could the culture from his home state have something to do with his decision? You be the judge. Voting Against the DOMA were 3 from New York and 2 from CA. Kennedy, from Sacramento, CA, was nominated by Reagan (a conservative President).

Jean and I have been enjoying the beautiful weather here in Northern California. A couple weeks ago we spent a day at Lake Shasta where we toured the inside of the dam, took a boat across the lake, and explored the Mount Shasta caverns. This past weekend in San Francisco we picniced at a free outdoor concert in Stern Grove with Michael McDonald (of the Doobie Brothers) and Boz Scaggs. Tomorrow we'll spend the day at the Alameda County Fair, winding up with an outdoor evening concert by The Spinners (a 1970s and 80s R&B band). I love these long summer days.

San Andreas Fault The San Andreas Fault is a Continental Transform Fault that runs a length of roughly 1,300 km (810 miles) through California in the United States. The fault's motion is Right-Lateral Strike-Slip (HORIZONTAL MOTION). It forms the Tectonic Boundary between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate. The fault was FIRST IDENTIFIED in Northern California by the UC Berkeley geology professor Andrew Lawson in 1895 and named by him after a small lake which lies in a linear valley formed by the fault just south of San Francisco, the Laguna de San Andreas. After the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake, Lawson also discovered that the San Andreas Fault stretched southward into Southern California. Large-scale (hundreds of miles) lateral movement along the fault was first proposed in a 1953 paper by geologists Mason Hill and Thomas Dibblee. EVOLUTION: The evolution of the San Andreas dates back to the mid Cenozoic, to about 30 Mya (million Years Ago). At this time, a spreading center between the PACI ...

San Jose (/ˌsæn *** ˈzeɪ/; Spanish: St. Joseph) is the third-largest city in California, the tenth-largest in the United States,[5] and the county seat of Santa Clara County. San Jose is the largest city within Silicon Valley, which is a major component of the greater San Francisco Bay Area. It is the largest city in Northern California. San Jose was founded on November 29, 1777, as El Pueblo de San José de Guadalupe, the first civilian town in the Spanish colony of Nueva California.[6] The city served as a farming community to support Spanish military installations at San Francisco and Monterey. When California gained statehood in 1850, San Jose served as its first capital.[

We celebrated my birthday with family in a "bakery crawl". Sort of like a pub crawl, but you do it in daylight, nobody gets a hangover, and you don't have to worry about designated drivers... We started mid-morning at *** Donuts on High St. in Oakland - THE best donuts in the explored regions of Northern California. Modern day donuts - epitomized by Krispy Kremes - inflate about 0.5 gram of batter into a hollow balloon, covered with a sugar-slurry which always always raises suspicions that the ingredients list includes the words "modified" and "hydrogenated". *** Donuts are not hollow, but not heavy; they have no trace of oiliness, even after a day or two in the back of the fridge. They have perfect texture - al dente, slightly chewy all the way through, but neither heavy or "cake-ey". I stuck to the simple plain glazed; my sister opted for a chocolate covered, her husband Mel for a cinnamon swirl, and my cousin Brian, a rasbery -filled. *** does not have seating; we forbore ordering coffe, and got ...

My friend R. Edward Peterson, PLS, saved this section of Lombard Street from the hands of a highly incompetent architect who made plans to repave the street as if it were only as long as the HORIZONTAL distance between Hyde and Leavenworth Streets, and not with the considerable extra length required by the actual SLOPE of the hill. The contractor realized that there was a problem as soon as the first switchback was reached. The architect pointed the finger at the County Surveyor's office who had done the pre-design survey. Ed had done the field work and drafted (or supervised the drafting of) the topographic map of the existing street. Ed looked at the architects plan for about a San Francisco second and found the problem; made a meeting with the architect and taught him the Pythagorean Theorem (a^2 + b^2 = c^2) and reminded him that the hypotenuse (slope) was always longer than the sides of the triangle (Horizontal distance and vertical difference). Shortly after that Ed left the DPW for the SFPUC w ...

This was the question posed to me by a curious TV reporter on May 7, just three days after a stretch limousine hired to carry nine Filipino nurses to a bridal party across the San Mateo Bridge suddenly burst into flames killing five of the occupants, including the bride. When she interviewed me in my law office in San Francisco, Ann Notarangelo, the weekend anchor of CBS 5′s Eyewitness News, explained that she was only asking the question because it was on the minds of her viewers. She thought I might know the answer as I taught Filipino American History at San Francisco State University and I am the legal counsel of the Philippine Nurses Association of Northern California. Plus, I told her, I am married to a Filipino nurse. Ann said that she was frankly surprised to learn that 20% of all the registered nurses in California is a Filipino, a considerably large percentage since Filipinos number only 2.3 million (officially 1.2 million) out of a state population of 38 million. “I never noticed it before, ...

It's interesting how things work out. In 1951, my uncle read an ad in the Sunday Chicago Tribune, for United Airlines. They were hiring airline mechanics, for San Francisco. He did the Jed Clampett thing. In 1966, I went west of the Mississippi River, for the very first time. On Easter Vacation, we visited my uncle, and his family, in the SF Bay Area. We left snow and ice, and came to warmth, blue sky, and the greenest hills I'd ever seen. I made a vow to myself, that Northern California was where I wanted to live. By the grace of God, this has come true. I never would have met my wonderful wife of 35 years if I had not stepped out in faith. Even tough I did not know that's what I was doing, at the time.
Girl Scout Cookies is quickly becoming a Bay Area favorite, with elegant, yet powerful flavors of sticky cotton candy, earth, fruit and spice all wrapped up into one pungent flavor-combination with a long-lasting almost all-day effect that will leave you lethargic for hours after you "come down" from this fantastic medicinal strain If you live in the Bay Area, you've likely heard of Girl Scout Cookies. Whether it's from one of the songs by the famous San Francisco rapper, Berner or actually trying it yourself, Girl Scout Cookies is a can't-miss strain that will medicate you beyond your wildest dreams. A potent mix of an OG Kush x Durban Poison x Cherry Kush mother backcrossed with a prime-looking OG Kush father created possibly one of the best Northern California strains of all time. For those of you who are into the Bay Area rap scene, you've likely already smoked some of this off-the-charts weed after hearing some of the songs by San Francisco rapper and collective owner, Berner. Look for a 9 to 10 week ...

Why the San Francisco 49ers WILL WIN the Super Bowl. During the last World Series, I had the great benefit of traveling through Northern California. The spirit in "the city" as they call San Francisco was electric. The Giants romp though Major League Baseball established San Francisco as the current "championship city" in pro sports. The 49ers will continue the Bay Area championship tradition. From a cosmic angle, consider the day on which the Super Bowl is held. On Sunday, February 3, the moon will appear in the sign of Scorpio. In astrology, the moon is correlated to the public mood. Scorpio's colors are maroon and dark red, like the 49ers colors. The 49ers starting QB, Colin Kapernick was born on November 7, 1987, under the sign of Scorpio. Finally, consider if you will the fact that the college football national championship was 28 days earlier, also on the moon in Scorpio. The moon takes 28 days to go around the earth. The national championship Alabama Crimson Tide also feature Scorpio colors. This f ...

January 31, 2013 – Feast of St. John Bosco The Diocese of Northern California of the North American Old Catholic Church condemns the anti *** remarks made by San Francisco 49ers player Chris Culliver Mr. Culliver’s Remarks were uncharitable and hurtful: During a radio interview, 49ers player Chris Culliver made derogatory and ignorance based remarks against any homosexual players who might be on his team. These sorts of remarks are unkind, uncharitable and unacceptable in a pluralistic society when made by a person who is a public figure in this society. Many young people may look up to football players, such as Chris Culliver. He must strive to a higher standard. Truly, “God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Background- Moore was born in the Highland Park neighborhood of Northeast Los Angeles,[8][9] but moved to the Forest Hill neighborhood of San Francisco at the age of 2, where he attended elementary school. At the ages of 9 and 10, Moore attended a local boarding school located in the Mojave Desert LV, but eventually moved back to Northern California. By the time he was 12, his family moved back to his birthplace of northeast L.A., where he enrolled in a private academy school specializing in arts. Later he was home schooled at the age of 14 due to bullying. In 2004, he learned he was adopted[10] and dropped out of the program when he was 16.[11][12] While a young teenager in Los Angeles, Moore would attend punk gigs in Mexican American neighborhoods in East and South Los Angeles, and later on electro club raves in the downtown's Silver Lake and Echo Park neighborhoods.[13][14]
I swear to you, in my earlier post that mentioned Southern California as opposed to the Jefferson State, I HAD NOT seen this posting by a friend of mine. It's actually quite remarkable happenstance. Here you see the state of Jefferson as it was proposed so long ago. I would back this whole-heartedly if it were proposed again today. Northern California and Southeastern Oregon are not represented by their state's lawmakers. California is ruled by the southern part of the state and Oregon is ruled by the people in Multnomah County. This leaves a vast group of people that live between San Francisco and Portland without representation. The 51st state of Jefferson would deal with this terrible mistake.
Just for you Mike lol! It came as little surprise that Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was honored as the NFL's 2011 MVP after leading his team to a league-best 15-1 record, throwing 45 TD passes and setting a record for passer rating (122.5). CAPTIONBy Morry Gash, AP But his acceptance speech at the inaugural NFL Honors in Indianapolis had a priceless nugget. HONORED: Rodgers leads list of 2011 NFL award winners Rodgers, who grew up in Northern California, acknowledged childhood heroes Joe Montana, Jerry Rice and Steve Young of the 49ers before saying this with a sly grin: "Big Niners fan as a kid -- thanks for drafting me." Rodgers was a candidate to be the No. 1 pick of the 2005 draft to quarterback-needy San Francisco, but the 49ers selected Alex Smith instead. Ironically, current Packers HC Mike McCarthy served on that San Francisco coaching staff. Rodgers plummeted to 24th before Green Bay grabbed him. Rodgers' MVP award was presented by four-time winner and local hero Peyton Manning, whose future with th ...

ACLU Eagerly Takes Up Case of Sex Offenders in California Alan Sears Following the passage of California's Proposition 35 on Nov. 6, the American Civil Liberties Union filed suit to stop the measure against child predators from taking force. The section of Prop. 35 against which the ACLU took issue is that which "requires registered sex offenders to give authorities a list of their Internet providers and screen names." The ACLU of Northern California joined with the Electronic Frontier Foundation and brought suit in the U.S. District Court in San Francisco on behalf of two sex offenders who objected to disclosing that information. In other words, Prop. 35 would remove their aliases and make it much harder for them to interact with children who are unaware that they were predators. The ACLU argued that "the requirement restricts offenders' First Amendment right to free speech and their due process and equal protection rights under the Fourteenth Amendment." In response, a U.S. District Judge temporarily ha ...

James M. "Jim" Foster (November 19, 1934[1] – October 31, 1990[2]) was an American LGBT rights and Democratic activist. Foster became active in the early *** rights movement when he moved to San Francisco following his undesirable discharge from the United States Army in 1959 for being homosexual.[3] Foster co-founded the Society for Individual Rights (SIR), an early homophile organization, in 1964.[3] Dianne Feinstein credits SIR and the *** vote with generating her margin of victory in her election to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1969.[4] In 1971, Foster, along with Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon, transformed SIR into the Alice B. Toklas Memorial Democratic Club.[5] The Toklas club was the first *** Democratic club in San Francisco.[3] Also in 1971, Foster was instrumental in convincing Richard Hongisto to run for sheriff and in delivering *** votes to his winning campaign.[4] It became a truism of San Francisco politics that, as long-time activist José Sarria had put it, "nobody ran for an ...
from my upcoming book "Incidental Spring", Reading Segment "If Gold Rush did not happen, I wonder what would have become of California, i.e. Northern California to be more specific. However, Gold Rush did happen; it made many new Californians wealthy, California became a state, and during the 19th century, Gold Rush profits have helped built the city of San Francisco. New luxury houses have surfaced, where new families were formed. More recently, specifically, 75 Years Ago from the anniversary year 2012, progress in regional development has led to the construction of the magnificent, the most photographed bridge in a world - the Golden Gate Bridge. Consequently, communication networks have opened many new doors to prosperity for residents of Northern California. If natural selection among people for becoming successful evolves around principles of being “lucky” - as that is frequently how survivors call themselves without knowing how to, in practical terms, realistically explain the process, and are e ...

Some info from the web - GoPro unveiled its latest, impossibly small, impossibly precise, impossibly cool camera on Tuesday evening in San Francisco. The GoPro Hero 3 gets smaller by 30%, faster by a factor of two, and shoots 4K video at 15 frames per second. That’s cinema quality in the “black” package for $400. Add built-in WiFi leveraging a GoPro app for your iPhone (Android coming soon), and you can also live-stream your images or video. Full disclosure: I have been rooting for GoPro since founder Nick Woodman almost rode me off a poison oak-filled cliff along the Northern California Coast Years Ago. It’s a Silicon Valley company that has been built on passion, with Woodman leading the charge, and it shows. GoPro Hero 3 WiFi remote. I’ll let the real WIRED gadget hounds take it through its paces, but it’s insane how much is being packed into such a small package, and how far GoPro as a company has come. Consider that after the big camera companies ignored the opportunity, this formerly tin ...

The Wine Country is a region of Northern California in the United States known as a premium wine-growing region.[1] Viticulture and wine-making have been practiced in the region since the mid-19th century. There are over 400 wineries in the area north of San Francisco,[2] mostly located in the area's valleys, including Napa Valley in Napa County, and the Sonoma Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Bennett Valley, and Russian River Valley in Sonoma County. Wine grapes are also grown at higher elevations, such as Atlas Peak and Mount Veeder AVAs.[3] The region is defined not only in terms of viticulture, but also its ecology, geology, architecture,[4] cuisine,[5] and culture.[6] The majority of the grape harvest, in terms of both area and value, derives from Sonoma County.[7] Communities associated with the Wine Country include Santa Rosa, Kenwood, Healdsburg, Sonoma, Napa, Yountville, St. Helena, Calistoga, Geyserville, Petaluma, Sebastopol, Guerneville, historic Fort Ross and Ukiah.

Yesterday: I met Chris in Daly City, and we drove all the way through San Francisco, across the Gold Gate Bridge, through the tunnel (to granmother's house we go?), and then all the way north to the quaint Northern California town of Healdsburg. The weather was great the whole drive up and when we got to downtown Healdsburg it was very calm and quiet. We got Aztec mochas from Flying Goat Coffee, then got burritos from Taqueria el Sombrero. After relaxing and eating in the park, we headed over to Bear Republic brewery, where we had both of their beer samplers. After Healdsburg, we drove down to Santa Rosa, where we checked out the Russian River brewery. We took our time with their huge beer sampler, which was very good, and left around midnight. We tried a total of 31 different beers from 2 breweries in under 6 hours. THAT is how everyone's leave should go.

THE LEGEND OF THE PIRATES OF THE CORONADO ISLANDS As the Gold Rush raged in Northern California, a band of bloodthirsty pirates flew the skull and crossbones on South Coronado Island and used a cave now known as Pirate Cave as their hideout. Ships traveling south from San Francisco carried rich cargos of newly mined gold to the East and their course lay directly abeam of the pirate's nest. The leader of these thieves was Jose Alverez, his origin either a castoff from LaFitte's hearty lads banished from New Orleans or a deserter from the Mexican Army. Regardless of his true past, it is known that he stole a schooner from a Mexican port, and after arming it with plenty of cannon and saber wielding scallywags, he made his base on the Coronados. In a clever game of hide and seek, he set up business in pursuit of the buccaneer's goal of fortune and fame. The fame factor was to elude these troops, as the barbarous practice of taking no prisoners and scuttling every vessel they assaulted made tracing their actio ...
