Re: “Darwin BondGraham, Ali Winston Receive Society of Professional Journalists Award For Oakland Police Reporting

BondGraham and Winston certainly deserve recognition for their good work.

Needs to be said that coverage of Oakland government, politics and community has long offered endless opportunities for productive investigative journalism. Local media ignore most of Oakland's economic and social problems and the destructive and shameful failures in city hall.

There remains an enormous amount of work yet to done telling the stories of what really goes on in Oakland.

Re: “ICE 'Public Safety Advisory' Criticizing Local Law Enforcement for Immigration Policies Appears to Contain Bad Data

ICE is racist just like Trump and the Republican Party.

Re: “UC Berkeley Students Inspire Legislation That Would Make California Colleges Provide Abortion Pill On Campus

This is a common sense approach. Like most good ideas, it's so obvious in retrospect.

Re: “Uber Not Coming To Oakland After All?

What about only the tip, just for a second, just to see what it feels like?

Kidding aside, isn't this a more healthy way to explore a relationship?

If Uber wants to follow the Warriors over to SF, let them try and ride the coattails of success.

They might find Oakland offers a place to live and work that's better suited to keeping it real. I'm just saying. San Francisco can get a bit caught up, it's in the history books if you look.

Re: “Uber Not Coming To Oakland After All?

the gig economy is independent contracting that really doesn't benefit you. All the expenses fall on the driver, taxes, upkeep, etc. After putting 100,000 miles on a 2014 Avalon a part time driver for Uber will soon need a new car while still paying for the old one.

Re: “Uber Not Coming To Oakland After All?

How is the gig economy rubbish ? As a second job (not Uber or Lyft ride sharing), the "gig economy" EASILY, without much of a sweat puts an extra $400-$500 a week in my pocket. I know what I got into and am ABSOLUTELY satisfied with the arrangement.

Good riddance to bad, unethical, gig economy rubbish.

Re: “Alameda Sheriff's Letter Supporting Trump Attorney General Jeff Sessions Draws Criticism From Immigration and Civil Rights Advocates

Good for Ahern, he is following the law...I know that is odd for the "progressives" but for law abiding people it is refreshing. Next thing the "progressives" will want to empty the jail as most of them are political prisoners. Thank you for protecting us from criminals.

Re: “Alameda Sheriff's Letter Supporting Trump Attorney General Jeff Sessions Draws Criticism From Immigration and Civil Rights Advocates

Great article, but I would love more information about how someone who clearly doesn't represent the interests of the majority of alameda county became Sheriff and if there is any effort to replace him with a progressive sheriff that better represents the values of our community.

Re: “Uber Not Coming To Oakland After All?

I wonder what Uber saw in Oakland in the first place? What changed their minds? Did the city put up its usual anti anything road blocks and discouraged them? Is their business model stalling?l wonder.

Re: “Uber Not Coming To Oakland After All?

Uber should insure the city is involved regardless of their personal business goals. This appears to be more important now as they are apparently more of a landlord than driver of business in our city.

It is clear that Uber merely needs to act like a landlord in our great city and work with the citizens, businesses and government to insure a successful uptown transition.

Uber - please take this opportunity to extract your company plans from our need for an improved and properly integrated downtown. Sounds like one outreach individual is not enough.

Help us help you! :-)

Re: “Berkeley Is First City in America to Divest From Companies that Work on Trump's Border Wall

WOW!!!!!! Why is it that so many WHITE IMMIGRANTS have so much to speak about when pitting BLACKS and ILLEGALS AGAINST ONE ANOTHER? TRUE FACT!!!! WHITE FOLKS will not!!!! perform the jobs or duties that BLACKS or ILLEGALS get done. If in fact there is an strong argument somewhere in that, then let's argue that WHITE RAN INDUSTRY hire more BLACKS FOR EQUALITY IN PAY AND CONDITIONSINSTEAD OF CUTTING CORNERSBY HIRING ILLEGALS UNDER THE TABLE AND TREATING THEM AS THEY CHOOSE!!!! REAL B REAL.....TOGETHER!!!! WE CONQUER, DIVIDED WE'RE FALLING INTO ANOTHER TRAP!!!! WE DON"T HAVE TO ACT LIKE OPPRESSORS, DON'T HATE OR DISCRIMINATE.......LET'S START TO APPRECIATE!!!!!!

Ladder and rock climbing companies might be smart to poise themselves to take up a new location in Mexico! I would invest in those companies if I could!
