Re: “Landlord Being Sued for Allegedly Pushing Out SRO Tenants

I know James Kilpatrick personally he is bully and nothing more he think that because he have money and he live in high rise building with his fancy suit and fancy life he can destroy poor people lives. James Kilpatrick blame city of Oakland for asking him to comply with the rules and regulations? He blame the contractor? come on he is James Kilpatrick the owner of his high end firm and he should know better and start take care his clients. His clients are very nice and they only wanted to live in peace in this building, i was there few times and it's not place to live in. James Kilpatrick the man the bully the most awful person that i meet in my life will go down, it's not about no one else only him! he care about money and he don't see people he see only himself. James Kilpatrick the biggest bully in the bay area welcome to the judgment day!

Re: “Oakland Cell Phone Surveillance Vote Postponed to Improve Privacy Protections

Mass Surveillance.

Mass surveillance are documented whit our cell phones.
Thousands of volunteers have with their mobile phone uploaded their results to different cell tower (base station) databases.

The hack that is picked up whit our Mobil phones is,
"man in the middle attack, umts (GSM)"
The explanation is that GSM base stations is pretending to be an official GSM station and emits a Cell ID.

The voluntary collection of which base stations our cell phones have used, is collected whit app's like
http://wiki.opencellid.org/wiki/Data_sources

In the EU it is a human right to have telecommunications secrecy.
That means that your phone calls must be encrypted.
(it is very likely also human rights in many other countries)

Article 8 – Right to respect for private and family life.
Listening to your conversation, is a violation of privacy

Article 5 - liberty and security.
Liberty i violated by the size of the hacking and the size of a hidden GSM network
A dropped emergency call is a hazard to your security.

Article 6 - fair trial,
The reason is dropped phone calls, people listing in on conversations whit your lawyer.
The right to have a private talk whit your lawyer

Article 10 - expression.
Whit out telecommunications secrecy, every on is listing to your conversations.
Dropped phone calls is the same as Censoring

Several other rights is also violated.

---------------------------------------------------------

You will need to compare whit official database for your area.

Voluntarily collect databases.:
http://opencellid.org/
http://www.cellmapper.net/map
https://wigle.net/ (blue dots are GSM base stations)
http://opensignal.com/
http://www.cellumap.com/
http://openbmap.org/
Mozilla location services.
There are many other databases.

Official cell tower database.:
Denmark.: Mastedatabasen.dk
Norway.: finnsenderen.no
Schweiz.: Funksender.ch
Poland.: Beta.btsearch.pl
Great Britain.: http://www.sitefinder.ofcom.org.uk/search
France.: http://www.cartoradio.fr/cartoradio/web/
Belgium.: http://zendmasten.be/
Brussel.: http://geoportal.ibgebim.be/webgis/antenne_emettrice_gsm.phtml?langtype=2060
Austria.: http://www.senderkataster.at/
Germany http://emf3.bundesnetzagentur.de/karte/Default.aspx
Netherlands.: http://www.antenneregister.nl/Html5Viewer_Antenneregister/Index.html?viewer=antenneregister
USA.: http://www.antennasearch.com/

What you see in the above databases are layers of registered GSM base stations / antennas.
A quick look will tell you that it is a mobile GSM network and installed GSM network.
it is small teams.

So you think that is not that bad,
It is a mobile network and layers of registration, THINK AGAIN,
it is much worse, than you think and see.
Install the App AIMSICD and download the OCID database,
You will see a difference a HUGE difference.

The databases are validated because there is products made on them and they work.
http://opencellid.org/, ENAikoon https://www.enaikoon.com/en/home/
https://location.services.mozilla.com/ Firefox phones https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/os/

Exsampel of closed databases.:
Google location.
IPhone.
Windows.
Symbian.
http://navizon.com/
https://unwiredlabs.com/

A small Conclusion.:
Someday the closed database's will be sized by government official.
Because of what you see in the voluntarily collect databases.
When that happens and it will,
We all lose our freedom and will be violated.
Those closed database's also contains information on were the GSM base station were logged.
So what do that mean,
Well they can look at the closed databases and see
How often you went to the local pusher,
How often you shopped and were,
How often you visit friends,
And much more.

Pleas.
Provide permalinks is there are things you don't understand,
the official database for your area and I will have a look.
Or ask a questions.

Example when comparing databases.:
London. compare pictures, there is a huge difference.
For the USA opencellid.org, wiggle.net, opensignal.com, etc.. in conjunction whit http://www.antennasearch.com/

Take a look at Chicago http://opencellid.org/ and compare whit the official antenna/Base station database http://www.antennasearch.com/
There are 2,441,277 GSM antennas/stations in the U.S more than 10% has been registered in Chicago, Pleas look at the pictures after the picture who says the government doesn’t listen to people.

You want to know if your cell phone under surveillance.
Android
http://www.android.pk/blog/tutorials/how-to-enable-third-party-apps-installation-on-android-phones/
https://github.com/CellularPrivacy/Android-IMSI-Catcher-Detector/wik

IPhone.
Try using the app Opensignal or similar.
Compare whit the official database for your area.

Discovering the hidden GSM network.
How can you discover that there is a hidden GSM network.
You need to compile the Android open source Project. https://source.android.com/ whit the function getneighboringcellinfo
Install an app that plots GSM antennas.
compare whit the official database.

The function getneighboringcellinfo is deprevated in android and have been since android 2.3
Today it is the function neighboringcellinfo and there are no apps suporting the function.

when you look at opencellid.org and see the diffrence from the official database.
Those diffrence are all phone connections there are hijacked whit a GSM base station
The reason is that opencellid.org is a new data base. and the phones that did the collecting dont have the function getneighboringcellinfo.

The Hack
The rouge GSM base stations pretends to be and official GSM station to the Cell phone.
And to the official Cell tower it pretends to be the phone.
There is a hand made drawing.

screen shoot films from the cell phones perspectiv
It is from a Cell phone were the connection is hijacked.
(I know it is boring, pleas download and watch in high speed)

Here is another https://1drv.ms/v/s!Ar3SzXWX8b_5gQbSxqpBMVeWxJ5f
My phone, I am sitting in a train from Herning to Copenhagen, Denmark 220km it is an unofficial network and it is the “man in the middle attack, UMTS (GSM), seen from my phone.
The official database to compare whit is https://www.mastedatabasen.dk/VisKort/PageMap.aspx
I have over 24hours of film. Over 400mb logs and a small piece of a Trace.

--------------------------------------------

If you look at the article http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2015/02/22/cellphone-911-lack-location-data/23570499/

First thing is the cellphone don’t transmit a signal, containing information about its location it is done through signal triangulation.

“The technology of locating is based on measuring power levels and antenna patterns and uses the concept that a powered mobile phone always communicates wirelessly with one of the closest base stations (Cell tower), so knowledge of the location of the base station implies the cell phone is nearby.

Advanced systems determine the sector in which the mobile phone is located and roughly estimate also the distance to the base station. Further approximation can be done by interpolating signals between adjacent antenna towers. Qualified services may achieve a precision of down to 50 meters in urban areas where mobile traffic and density of antenna towers (base stations) is sufficiently high.[citation needed] Rural and desolate areas may see miles between base stations and therefore determine locations less precisely. (It is a lot more precise than 50m)

GSM localization uses multilateration to determine the location of GSM mobile phones, or dedicated trackers, usually with the intent to locate the user.” (Pretty simpel :) )

From the article. (I just use it as an example)
“In California, more than half of cellphone calls did not transmit location to 911 from 2011 to 2013, and it's getting worse. Last year, about 12.4 million, or 63%, of California's cellphone calls to 911 didn't share location. Among the worst places: Silicon Valley. In December 2012, precise location was shared in 10%-37% of the area's emergency calls, depending on the wireless carrier.

In Colorado, 58% of the 5.8 million cellphone-to-911 calls last year transmitted coordinates, according to data obtained from the Colorado 911 Resource Center.

In Texas, two-thirds of cellphone calls in a sample of calls from major cities – including Austin and Houston – reached 911 without an instant fix on location from 2010 through 2013.

In the Virginia suburbs outside Washington, Fairfax County reported 25% of cellphone calls included precise location data in 2014, and Loudoun County said 29% of mobile calls did over the last six months of 2014.”

When 911 tries do a location fix, through signal triangulation, and it doesn’t fit the caller’s description of where he or she is, chances are big (100%) that it is a base station (Rough Cell Tower).
The rough cell tower pretends to be a official Cell tower to the cell phone and to the tower it pretends to be a Cell Phone.
so if and when 911 tries to make a fix on location, based on radio signal, it is a fix on the rough cell tower it is because it to the official cell tower send the phone data, (Misdirected emergency services) and when a huge part of the unofficial GSM network (rough cell towers) is mobile, in cars, bags etc., then the signal is jumping. (No fix on cell phone)
The 911 databases for the cell phone fix, all holds a clue to Rouge base stations.

911 location fix on the ip is also a problem, mentioned in the article.
Doing a location on the IP can also be a problem,
Pleas look at drawing of the hack the ip can be in a be anywhere, would also cause Misdirected emergency services.
Here is a strange one, the iplocation algorithm looks through different network hops, google get the location right every time, but Bing locates the rough base station.
Google and Bing also have databases that can help discover the true picture of the problem.

A example on genocide could be that and why is should be addressed in the UN.
In Colorado 0,01% of the 58% 5.8 mio cellphone-to-911 could be a death caused by the time lost in miss directed help etc.
Just those 0.01% is a possible genocide
The reason is it is done by hacking phones, it is done intentionally.
33 people per year that is using as low a Number as possible.
It is more likely 0,1 making it 330 people a year for one state.

If The UN takes honor it will be the numbers They will be looking Into.
It is all deaths were the phone connection is hijacked that group are to blame for.
Not 0,01 or 0.1.
And the 330 human lives is just for one state
Imagine the number of deaths through the hole of US, because of Hacking cell phones.
And it is just not only the US, It is all countries in the world there are deaths because of this group.

The article don’t say any ting about deaths caused by a lost/dropped 911 call.
So the death toll is a lot higher.

The next thing is the RF microwave radiation emitted from a rough cell tower.
RF microwave radiation pushes (vibrates), fat, sucker and water molecules, that can cause Cell changes, we know it as cancer.
• http://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/understanding/statistics
• In 2014, an estimated 15,780 children and adolescents ages 0 to 19 were diagnosed with cancer and 1,960 died of the disease.
Another thing about RF microwave radiation is that it causes DNA changes, and it is not positive thing, health problems and early death.

Then there is cancer deaths and much more.

People are looking for answers about the calls from the air planes that hit the world trade center. http://www.911myths.com/html/mobiles_at_altitude.html
There is Rough gsm base stations in the plains, transmitting the signal to the ground at higher levels than a cell phone can do. A clue to this is in the databases. you will find GSM base stations on the air plane strips.

I am wondering why no one, is puzzled about,
Why is it possible to hear fragments of conversations
in a ordinary GSM scanner and the channel jumping is uneven
It is because of the Hack Mitm, umts (GSM) It is that hack that is picked up by the ordinary GSM scanner
There is no encryption on the hack
All official GSM stations encrypt data and voice
It should not be possible to hear anything because of the encryptions
All you hear in an ordinary GSM scanner is Hacking

That the owners are either born in west oakland or long term past oakland residents eases the blow of this existing. As a Black 20+ year resident of Oakland, driving past this store makes me sad. it's gentrification at its best. The city has little to no youth development in that area and a school with a long history that Oakland Unified School District is doing its best to destroy and dismantle. I want to wish them the best and most of me does but in these times, its addition to the neighborhood makes me want to scream! Now that from out-of-state white googlers and the like are driving Black folks out of west oakland there's a deli. Just great. Yay!!!

Re: “Big Soda Is Spending Big Money Against Oakland Sugary Beverage Tax Proposal

This tax is simply a way for the cities to balance their overspending budgets. I personally hate sugary drinks and I hate to see kids with soda. However, taxing them is not a way to stop this. It requires education and healthier alternatives.I'm not supporting big soda either. But the city is just looking for ways to tax us.

Re: “9th Circuit Smacks Down Rogue Pot Prosecutors: Dispensaries’ Legal Shield Holds Up in Federal Appeals Court

Okay folks, let me bring you ALL up to speed in these matters! If I told you that 99% of all the entities currently operating marijuana businesses in California are illegal for-profit corporations known as "dispensaries" holding themselves out to be lawful "collectives" or "cooperatives" you'd probably be shocked. Yes, that means NOT one of those unlawful entities is following current state law as its NOT protected by the spending amendment! The SBOE would have a list of these "sales" tax exempt entities on file and on record because you simply cannot "sell" or "profit" from a controlled substance or the transactions. Nowhere in current state law does it say that you can specifically "sell" or "profit" from marijuana and our state government has misguided us into unlawful activities simply so they could tax the illegal business operations. Furthermore, the spending amendment does NOT address or effect the long arm of the federal government known as the IRS and they're ability to enforce federal laws like the CSA, RICO and their own Rule 280E. The "paper shield" amendment only has four corners and only says what it says inside those corners and nothing outside or beyond that is protected from federal prosecution. Rejoice if you are one of the rare handful of lawful entities operating today and be very wary if your NOT because the federal government knows California mislead you from the get go so they could "Cash in on Our Use" if you're not smart enough to understand and follow the "Compassionate Use Act" the way its supposed to be followed in conjunction with federal law! The fact you paid "sales" tax is the very evidence that will be used by the federal government to prove you weren't following state law and will also be the evidence used to prosecute you and or your organization. I wish the best of luck to ALL those that believed the "dispensary" business model used by even the largest of operators is exactly what comes back to haunt you and shame on California for leading you down the unlawful path and the potential prosecution simply for the "taxation" of illegal business activities of "selling" and "profiting" from pot!

Re: “Big Soda Is Spending Big Money Against Oakland Sugary Beverage Tax Proposal

The PHI study did not confirm a total pass through of the tax to consumers. What it did show is that some retailers were passing through the tax to consumers, to greater or lesser degrees, and some were not. The small grocers were generally not. They are a competitive disadvantage if they have to sell higher priced soda than neighboring stores in Albany etc. that do not have the tax, and have fewer resources to absorb it. http://www.mercurynews.com/news/ci_2913761…

Re: “Big Soda Is Spending Big Money Against Oakland Sugary Beverage Tax Proposal

I watched a consumer grab a $1.79 16 oz soda from a refrigerator at a cash register and buy it without asking or caring about the price, which was higher than the food they were buying. If consumers who will be impacted are not price sensitive, the tax is irrelevant.

The people against soda need to work on having a substitute that is acceptable by consumers. Otherwise, they will just be paying more...and will buy cheaper, less good food.

Re: “Big Soda Is Spending Big Money Against Oakland Sugary Beverage Tax Proposal

MarLeenLee et al: The Contra Costa Times (now East Bay Times) article is based on 1 person checking soda prices in 4 stores over a year ago in May 2015. Since then, researchers at UC Berkeley have confirmed that "Approximately 3 months after the tax was implemented, SSB [sugar-sweetened beverage] retail prices increased more in Berkeley than in nearby cities." [http://ajph.aphapublications.org/doi/pdf/10.2105/AJPH.2015.302881]

That conclusion was confirmed later in 2015 when Public Health Institute presented preliminary findings from their BEST (Berkeley Evaluation of Soda Tax) study to the American Public Health Association. PHI concluded that "the one cent per ounce tax has been fully passed on to the retail pricing of sugar sweetened beverages in large and small chain supermarkets and chain gas stations." In fact, that study - the most thorough evaluation of Berkeley’s SSB excise tax at the time - revealed that the price of SSBs increased by MORE than the 1 cent per ounce anyone hoped a pass-through of the tax would achieve! [http://www.phi.org/uploads/application/files/qi9zljgph8jvfuu6g8q9j703sk5v6ei1tzy2jdkds8s87kpjfm.pdf]

The evidence collected so far reveals that anyone who claims the tax is A) not increasing the cost of SSBs, B) increasing the cost of untaxed beverages, or C) both, is either misinformed or lying. Of course, the beverage industry will cite out-of-date and poorly-researched articles as part of their propaganda, so we must remain vigilant to catch their deceptive practices.

MarLeenLee: The grocers aren't the distributors, they are the retailers.

And with regard to the article you cite, that was an opinion piece written shortly after the Berkeley law passed. The only statistics that the author relies on are his own price-point comparison of two stores in Berkeley to two stores in Concord--that is not sound statistics.
