Re: “Oakland's Anti-Coal Activists Decry ‘Deceptive’ Mailer

Oops! In spite of "deceptive mailers" the city council did the right thing and banned the coal terminal.

How about if EBX sticks to reporting the news instead of trying to make the news?

EBX, is starting to sound a lot like that old (and defunct) Bruce Brugmann publication, Bay Guardian... A one note scream that eventually became quite ignorable.

I'm sick with MS, Fibromyalgia, intractable pain. I am being taken care of in an nursing home. I'm a prisoner of Big Pharma. If I won't be able to get relief from cannabis I feel I won't survive. If only these, this rich bastard could hurt the way I hurt all day everyday. Honestly I would love it.

This looks like it is falling flat on its face, but the fact that they are okay with extremely deceptive mailers makes me sad for the low regard for democracy that companies have.

Re: “Can I Recycle That?

To Michael Dreyfus-Pai Anyone know about milk and juice cartons? They have layers of paper and plastic, but are often not recyclable.

City of Alameda service tells us to COMPOST (and we can collect our compostables in the cartons) IF THE PLASTIC CAP AND OPENING ARE FIRST REMOVED. Otherwise, recycle.

Re: “Can I Recycle That?

City of Alameda service takes those waxy coated cardboard milk/juice cartons in COMPOST IF YOU REMOVE THE PLASTIC OPENINGS (CAP AND OPENING). Otherwise they tell us to put in recycling.

Re: “Major Pot Company Hit With Six Counts of Securities Fraud

While I was the first to expose MJNA in Salon as a pump and dump, I have to defend Hemp Inc. They bought the largest decorator in N. America and a big building in NC to process hemp into dozens of different products. They have spent a fortune setting up the plant and it's about ready to produce. Bruce has financed local farmers to replace tobacco crops with hemp and knef. Stock proceeds have gone to finance these projects and a major animal sanctuary that is up and running. Not to mention that Bruce has been a major supporter of the Silver Tour (teaching seniors about med mj) , veterans rights groups and a host of other worthwhile causes. I avoided doing business with him for years, but Hemp Inc is a very real company that can lead the hemp revolution in America and Bruce has put his heart and soul into making that happen.

Re: “Experts, Grand Jury Ding City of Berkeley's 'Ridiculous' Email Policy

I see the problem as a lot deeper than email. At the base of it all is the 4 or 8 year replacement of elected officials who then have the power to replace department heads and other appointed employees of the [city, county, state] that they have been elected to run.
They and their appointed employees may or may not have any knowledge about the systems they are assuming the control of, and all too often, new administrators come in with "better" ideas of how to accomplish the work of the government that may involve thousands of employees and effect hundreds of thousands of people - think of Flint, Michigan.
These "executives" are responsible for determining policies, such as department email retention policy, but they may have little or no understanding of the workings of email and what the labyrinthine implications of retaining it involve, either technically or legally.
And then once these elected or appointed officials move on, what is their responsibility for the policies they have been responsible for enforcing?
The discussion of corporate and government responsibility for actions that have been taken by the organization is not taking place publicly in the manner it should. Email is one increasingly obvious manifestation of it, but, as usual, only the tip of the iceberg.

Re: “#LibbyLeaks: Oakland Mayor Launches Investigation Against City and Police Whistleblowers

Ali Winston, and Darwin BondGraham, are real journalists and have been for a good long time. And the East Bay Express is a real newspaper, printing the truth researched and written by Winston and BondGraham.

So, Mr. Boom, if the way a newspaper is folded means that much to you, and you need to have your "news" created and vetted by multiple layers of government and corporate control, by all means choose that one (or five, or more). But remember the truth is somewhere else.

Re: “Experts, Grand Jury Ding City of Berkeley's 'Ridiculous' Email Policy

I'm disappointed that the EBE would use the hackneyed corporate media label for Clinton's "E-mail-gate". It was a crime for which she and all the civil-
servants who carried it out should be prosecuted, not just the usual bogus
right-wing nonsense.

Re: “Updated: Oakland Spent $72K Closing 162 Homeless Camps in 2015

Due to the inability of Libby Schaff's city government to do anything about the homeless under freeway 880 and highway 24 . they have now started to store discarded refuse from taxpayers on the sidewalk. I pay close to $500.00 in storage fees to storage goods that I need to survive in small business. These people think nothing of storing all of their belongings on the public sidewalk, making it impossible to pass, comingling with their garbage.
Has the Police Department and Libby Schaff lost their sense of decorum.
What in earth is going on ?
I believe that Libby has no idea of how to deal with this problem.
What it takes is some blunt decision making and enforcement like you have in Alameda, San Leandro , Emeryville and El Cerrito, along with Orinda, Moraga, Lafayette and Walnut Creek.

Re: “The Economics of a $16 Cup of Coffee

About half-a-century ago advertising agencies came up with the same principle: "sell the sizzle not the steak."

Folks in Oakland who like coffee should look at local coffee importer Sweet Maria's website. You can buy green coffee from all over the world there, roast it at home and have a fine cup at a lower cost than buying grocery store coffee.

One of the major problems with commercially-produced coffee is that it is 'way over-roasted so that it has nothing other than the taste of burnt beans. Then you add milk, sugar and other flavorings to make it palatable.

Hemp is not pot you fucktard of an author. People like you are the reason that it's more difficult than it should be to differentiate the two. I expected more of someone who writes for a marijuana journal. Bruce Perlowin is a dick.

It really is a heartbreaking story, because the young woman doesn't even seem to realize how much she was used, even when she was underage. She still maintains that she was or is friends with these people.
