Re: “Richmond Art Center

The RAC has become a welcoming center of creative endeavors for youth to seniors through art classes, opportunities to volunteer, and art exhibits of local and national importance. No snooty atmosphere here! All are invited to participate. Check out the annual Art of Living Black exhibit.

Re: “A Guide to Bay Area Badminton Gyms

It's great that there are so many facilities where you can play badminton in the area, I'm from San Jose which has quite a lot of places where you can go to play. My favorite is at Cambell Community Center https://trytopic.com/campbell-community-center

Re: “Turning Water into Wine

Great article Will! As the land use and planning battles continue to ensue within CA counties it is critical that you raise attention to the problem of industry scale and density of vineyards across sensitive habitat. With population projections looking to see built development scale out across the Central Valley and Coasts it will be another factor for residents to consider: densifying or sprawling built community environments or maintaining vineyards, farmscapes, and cattle ranching lands. The problems are complex when you look at costs of living and wages/income disparity with a deeper green understanding of our environment's carrying capacity. We are moving forward where resource grabs (i.e. land, water, etc...) are building exclusive zipcodes and fostering greater inequalities all within how we operate in society. Further, our state has a range of regulatory frameworks with some contradicting the other...it will be interesting to see how water policy advances and enforcement ensues to preserve the "environment" all the while maintaining business growth. Keep up the good investigative writing!

Re: “Superhighways in the Sky

People want benefits without costs. No matter how you do something, all they see is the bad side. Ooh the hell of planes in a highway in the sky. Ooooh the hell of planes dispersed on separate paths. Geez, I want to visit my father in Atlanta.

The FAA does have rules that require best noise reduction practices. The jets have to take off into the wind. However, did you ever notice, for example, that at SFO they take off at first in a steep climb, but then throttle down and turn as they overfly populated areas? There is no perfect path. Do you want planes or do you want to drive to Atlanta?

Re: “What Nurses Need to Know About the Endocannabinoid System and Cannabis

HI Piper,
That course was offered in 2012. The American Cannabis Nurses Association has a 6 hour course that we just offered this past May in Florida as a pre-conference workshop prior to The Ninth National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics. We will offer it again in the Spring of 2016. However, we hope to get it online through The Medical Cannabis Institute by this fall. It provides contact hours for nurses, but anyone can take it. If not a nurse you can take it and get a certificate of completion. Look for more information in the coming months on www.cannabisnurse.org or www.patientsoutoftime.org. Take care, ML Mathre

Re: “Richmond City Council Supports Just Cause Eviction Protections and Rent Control

Hopefully, this is the beginning of good news for Richmond renters -- and long overdue. But ... Please ... do not emulate Oakland ! Oakland does not have "rent control," but rather, "rent arbitration," a decrepit program framed by landlords and a conservative city council. Under Oakland's program, landlords can raise rents without any limits. Any excesses are reviewed ONLY if tenants know they have the right to "file a petition"without 30/60 days (less than 1% of tenants know or actually petition.) A horrible system !!

Re: “Superhighways in the Sky

NextGen is child abuse. The effects of hazardous noise on childrens learning and development has been well researched by Harvard, WHO and Cornell.

The FAA has utilized NextGen to implement new routes in new areas. It is effectively an extension of the airspace redesign project, but without the environmental studies.

What kind of credentials are required to take this course? Is it only for nurses?

Re: “Letters for the week of June 24, 2015

What comes next, preventive detention? If the elected officials think for one minute that predicting where crime will break out, is the next step to identify persons who might commit a crime and put them in jail, rather than risk that they could commit a crime? Any rational person will tell you that prediction is akin to tea leaf reading, ande ouiji boards. Where will all this lead, just go and watch the classic film, Fahrenheit 451, then tell me it can't happen here.

Re: “Oakland Mayor Schaaf and Police Seek Unproven 'Predictive Policing' Software

Unqualified, inexperienced people in Oakland city leadership roles are easy targets for the latest pinhead entrepreneur ready to solve urban problems with his or her newest app. The last Mayor (Quan) wasted $250K on a contract with William Bratton. Exactly what did we get from that experiment? Here we go again. You will always be able to buy quick fix "solutions" that don't work. When are we going to get some intelligence and leadership from the top in City Hall? Schaaf claims to be from Oakland, but she grew up in the hills. That is not the same as growing up in the flatlands. She has no hood sense at all. She needs to get off the hill and spend more time talking to the flatland folks to establish relationships and get community input on how policing can be more effective.

Re: “Oakland Mayor Schaaf and Police Seek Unproven 'Predictive Policing' Software

Hopefully she hires more police as well and enacts curfews for minors. Too many young folks roaming the streets at night. If caught, slap a hefty fine on the parents. I do believe many senseless crimes can be prevented by a curfew. Nip it in the bud before it starts, then there is no need for costly software programs. Many police would be freed up to concentrate on more serious crimes.
