After I reported that the fire sprinklers in my unit were painted over by my landlord + a full dozen other building violations the city didn't fix and of the problems. They then assured me that Oakland's Building Department would begin doing preventative inspections to protect its citizens. Lets ask how many of those have been accomplished and to what end.
Well said Curtis Funderburg! Well said! And Trump is becoming the second worst POTUS with him actions and his greed!!
Phil Jones you are an idiot and you are probably looking forward to large tax increases by the state of California. It will happen when federal funds are withheld from the left coast.
The problem here is that ABInBev buys up distributors in order to destroy the channel for independent craft brewers to get their beers distributed. This is completely unacceptable and any ABInBev owned and operated business should be boycotted.
The concerns are legitimate.
The craft beer movement has been one of the most exciting pushes away from factory food back to local craftsmanship, community values and a resurgence of beer culture in this country lost since before prohibition. When the largest multinational beer corporation tries to pass as part of the authentic local brewing community, that is not just a cute marketing tactic, it is strikingly lopsided and cynical competition for the up and coming brewers rooted here. It's a tactical move to pull apart the famous cooperation among the independent brewers. Beer monopoly dressed up in a shipping container is not good for beer, not good for Oakland, not even good for Oakland business. Score one for Brazilian-Belgian multinational ABImbev, though. Here comes the fake authenticity blueprint ready for every cool town in first American then elsewhere.
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.
I agree that this seems a great development for North Oakland. I don't follow the editorial sub-text that runs through this report that somehow AB InBev's involvement is a bad thing - unless it's a personal bias harbored by the author?
ICE is racist just like Trump and the Republican Party.

I am pretty sure Lady Esther's opened on 7th Street before 1968. I remember it as a child. Glad to see it back
I'm excited for the development this can bring to the neighborhood! Of course we hope for more small local shops, but having an anchor like that as an attraction is a great start!
Hopefully Richmond's share of funds go to my city.
This is a common sense approach. Like most good ideas, it's so obvious in retrospect.
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.
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.
"I'm Making Only $2.64 an Hour Working as an Uber Driver" "Takele Gobena makes well below minimum wage and says he has no health coverage if injured."
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.
