Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Reporters like BondGraham and Winston are indispensable, especially after the demise of the Oakland Tribune and the absence of beat reporters at City Hall. Democracy becomes impracticable without journalists who can devote time to researching long-form stories like theirs. What I'm wondering is, does this award come with any money?
Wow -- congrats to Darwin and Ali for great reporting (and the EBX for great reporters)!

It's now February 20 at 11am pacific. I just visited the Polk awards web site. I see no announcements for 2017 and they don't seem to appear on the 2016 lists? What's up?
Congrats to Darwin and Ali! Their work this year, on the police story, public land and housing and education has been exemplary!
Am Sherri from Texas. i just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called Donard. he is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying it was not a scam. 3 days later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $5000 daily. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $30000 in one week without any stress of being caught. I dont know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. blank Atm has really change my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address email@example.com. And I believe they will also Change your Life. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Viaduct? Vy not a chicken?
michael good: it looks like (as i thought) that there was nothing to fear regarding property destruction from any demonstrator or protester.
absolutely nothing negative happened as a result of days of protest.
hope that crow tasted *good.*
Excellent Beers, great hospitality.
"Do you crypto-anarchists really think..."
Epithet and poli sci update: the original crypto epithet was "crypto-fascist" spoken by Gore Vidal to W.F. Buckley Jr. Perfectly apt.
An anarchist is someone who doesn't believe in government, so whether or not gov't was aware of anything at all isn't really of much interest to an anarchist.
A fascist is likely to be someone who things gov't is god and, accordingly,
all-powerful and unquestionable. Something like W.F. Buckley Jr and the writer of the crypto- epithet above. Fascists or crypto-fascists.
...And now, debris from the from the fire is found dumped illegally.
"The city council should also be named including Desley Brooks whose district the fire was in."
Desley Brooks's Council District is #6. The Ghost Ship fire was in the Fruitvale area of Oakland which is Council District #5. Noel Gallo is Council member for that district. Gallo gives every indication of concern for the often-beset Oaklanders who live in his district.
Sounds like someone has it in for Desley Brooks. Before passing judgement based on "alternative facts," a little taste of reality might be useful. Unlike other Council members, if you call Desley's offical phone number, she is likely to answer the phone.
36 lives lost, gone. The City will be used for obvious liability. The city council should also be named including Desley Brooks whose district the fire was in. She had first hand knowledge for over five years of this potential but chose not to do ANYTHING about it, just like the rest of her district, the tent city of homeless, trash and defecation. She should be charged criminally for each and every life lost.
It took an entire City of Oakland to create this disaster. That made it difficult to cover up.
And this disaster/tragedy is EXACTLY why I'm not here for Oakland OVERLOOKING or ACCEPTING anything that is illegal. Had all facets of the City of Oakland done their part, 36 people wouldn't have died. I don't care who or what it is, the City of Oakland has got to stop tolerating this crap.
Couple of items:
Crime is hardly down. The changes aren't even one quartile different which means the average (which is higher than more populated cities) is still out of whack regarding crime.
2) Reddon, I'll just leave this for you.
Yes, it is heartbreaking the misery that these corporations have caused. Some of them also produced and promoted lead pipes long after they knew of its dangers.
See "Warnings Unheeded: a history of child lead poisoning," American Journal of Public Health, 1989 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1349776/
The Lead Industry and Lead Water Pipes: "A Modest Campaign"; Am J Public Health. 2008;98:15841592) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2509614/
So Reddon, your contention is that because people in Blue shoot people needlessly, the kids shot through the walls of their home, in their beds, count less than the ones shot by blue bullets...
The teens shot sitting in a car in front of their houses, in their own neighborhoods count less.
I'm not saying the blue shooters are right. I'm saying they've been handed and easy out. By the system and by clowns running the streets blasting away in broad daylight... And no one knows anything. We're tough. We're Oakland. We don't snitch.
As I said, all VERY lawful.
I'm eager to visit the Hope Collectives store!
Tupak, so nothing's good about the USA? Bet you will never have a space program.
