Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
My brother lives in Oakland, and sent me a link to the article, across the pond in England.
I was bedbound for 14 years with chronic fatigue syndrome. Now, happily, I have a joyful increase in mobility and speech and I am 'out' in the world through websites and writing.
Wishing you success in this venture and the warmth of knowing that your beauty persists whether seen or unseen. Congratulations on your oomph.
I don't think that it is right when students experience some kinds of crisis when they study at the college. They should be protected by college officials from crisis they are expected to take part in. They would stop studying if they always feel nervous about something that concerns to them. They would select essay service online and study ordering their home assignmntes from the Internet as they don't want to do them on their own. That's why we should care about them and defend from all kinds of studying crisis.
As a woman with tick-borne illness which has led to me becoming increasingly invisible to my former colleagues and friends, I would have very much liked to have attended. Until you go down the rabbit hole of chronic illness you have no idea how marginalized you can become. I know, for people who are chronically ill, it is a monumental task to put something like this on; thanks so much for doing it.
Of course, prior to WW2 Oakland was a very different city from a demographic standpoint. Whites left in droves after the war ended, and when industrial employment left the city, the largely black, blue collar working middle class that had moved West from the South and re-defined Oakland were left behind once again.
@Amy Mills seeing as the house was destroyed in the 60s, it's way long gone now. Lower Bottoms in that particular section was redeveloped, including, from what I've been told, freeway construction, which was far more popular at the time than any other transportation infrastructure besides commuter rail (BART) both of which supported white flight and suburban sprawl as a planning strategy, leaving the urban centers to rot with no services or support (except violent cops from the 'burbs to beat those too poor and black to flee)....
I like this. I have interstitial cystitis. An invisible condition that is often ignored. We need to be heard and seen.
thanks for the write up see http://nocoalinoakland.info
There are other forms in Alameda too, including some interesting paper pieces, some of which encourage the viewer to take a piece.
wonder if it's the same person who put the gnomes all around oakland utility poles a few years back (and they are still there!)?
Link, what house? I live in Lower Bottoms.
Hey David — I suppose some boxers probably do end up wailing (making long cries of sadness or pain) after their fights, but in the ring they are pretty focused on whaling (to strike or hit vigorously) on each other.
It's spelled "wail" not "whale".
"Those who may have a problem with an East Coast writer publishing an opinion on the place after living here for just four years."
Lots of new arrivals in Oakland, as well as Oakland's pols, absolutely love to read East Coast (NY Times) tourism writers on just how trendy Oakland is.
And creative too, if you think fancy cocktails are Art and spendy dining out is Art Appreciation.
But there are at least two Oaklands and never the twain shall meet.
Do you mean "grisly"? Grizzly refers to bears or gray-haired-ness, neither of which seem to pertain here.
The photo of the Shetman tank is a classic, and is emblematic of the the violence, racism, and inhumanity of 60's urban renewal. The tank is about to tear down a home in my neighborhood of Lower Bottoms. After this and over a hundred others were destroyed, the land at the heart of the neighborhood sat empty for more than a decade.
I am Elizabeth, i want to thank ''email@example.com'' for the very great spell he caste on my husband that makes him to come back to me immediately. We have been married for 9 years and we were blessed with three kids, my husband left us unjust-fully and was lost in a beauty of a woman, a woman who can't even withstand me and was staying with her, and left me and the kids all alone in the house and never care for us. each time I called him, he always insult and used me down on
phone, until i met a friend of mine who introduce me to (Orikiolodumarespelltemple@gmail.com) and he assured me that my husband will be back
to me within three days really after that given time I heard someone knocking at my door and find out it was my husband, pleading and dropping out tears begging for forgiveness, I accepted and we are now one, now i will advice everyone who are in this condition to contact him for your own solution at : Orikiolodumarespelltemple@gmail.com ..... he will
help you and bring your sorrowful life to happiness
CONTACT HIM THROUGH Orikiolodumarespelltemple@gmail.com ...
