Re: “Updated: Oakland Pot Union Bribery Scandal Exposed

when a Union Official squanders over half a Million Dollar$ of unclean money in Las Vegas, on personal property, paying street gang bills and secret interests, isn't there a tax liability?

Where's the IRS?

recent East Bay Express writeup :
http://www.eastbayexpress.com/…/sharmi-basu-is-dec…/Content…

"Taste Of India" is the third album from the ever prolific artist, musician, teacher and healer known as BEAST NEST (aka Sharmi Basu) . "Taste Of India" continues in the vain of her sophomore release "Songs For Puppies" but focusing even more on the drone, ambient side of her practice leaving behind the harsher cuts for future considerations. "Taste of India" is a nearly forty minute journey through lush, harmonizing tones, breathing, humming synthesizers , hissing, spacious dripping oscillators pulsing a pleathora of micro tonal structures of healing, relaxation, trauma, horror and so much more. Beast Nest is one of the most underrated projects in the bay area and it's time you got hip to it. We at RATSKIN are more than honored to release this beautiful, complicated, cavernous sound work into the world.


BEAST NEST is Sharmi Basu's primary performing project. She utilizes an unwavering depression & restrained horror to channel left-eyed spirits. While simultaneously clearing and entering, the sewage pipes of the body and the patriarchy congeal into watery soundscapes as a vehicle for achieving liberation through the darkest of fears.
All music composed, produced, and performed by Sharmi Basu

Re: “Mayor's Power Will Grow if Voters Approve Oakland Police Commission

I haven't read the measure in detail, but if Brooks and Kaplan are against it, it's probably good for Oakland.

Re: “Survivor, Oakland City Hall: Power Struggle Led to Expulsion of City Clerk from Closed Session

This is obviously a personal issue between the City Clerk and City Administrator. The City Clerk's attendance at closed session has never, ever been an issue in the past.Trust me, this is the last organization in the world you would want to hold to a standard of education qualifying somebody for the position they hold. That as a standard would be questionable starting with the Mayor, Assistant City Administrator and Public Works Director. Political connections and relationships seem to be more important than educational background in this place. Perhaps that's why they don't seem to be able to operate without getting in their own way.
