If representative democracy hadn't become corporate whoring this wouldn't be necessary. It's easy to take ballot initiatives out of the hands of wealthy special interests alone. The Secretary of State should allow signing petitions on their website, to save a great deal of money used to hire petitioners, and to save the Secretary of State the cost of comparing physical signatures. This would also encourage people to read more of the initiative text before signing and to save harassment in hot parking lots.
She is pretty nice woman. I’m not talking about outside look)))) today adult video is not so popular, as web camera services like http://www.hipwebcams.com/girls People don’t want just to watch, they also want to communicate, so frank talking to people, connecting them with each other is on time…
So, what's the trouble?)))
Keep it open and then place a San Francisco-style homeless navigation center nearby. That would solve a human problem. Closing the recycling center solves an aesthetic problem, at a human cost. We can't send away the fact of homelessness. We're just sending it back into our own community, but with desperate people who are now even more broke than before. Yes, bin pickers are annoying. Recycling centers are filthy. But they present an opportunity to connect people with services. Taking away the recycling center wastes that opportunity and replaces it with nothing.

I'm surprised and appalled at the shoddy journalism here. Lots of quotes from the for-profit company that is exploiting the homeless. Lots of quotes from the documentarian (who actually seems to be using this issue to promote his film). No mention of the three other recycling centers within a 10-block radius? You quote Alliance on how much they paid out last year but not on how much they made (hint: at least twice that in PROFIT). You have an unattributed quote from the ACLU—could it have been made by Executive Director Abdi Soltani? Not a single quote from someone who lives in the area and has lived there for many years? Or the local pastor who is helping to ensure that Alliance's victims get the services they need?
This isn't about gentrifiers not liking the shopping cart parade. It's neighbors being appalled at the victimization of our unhoused neighbors by Alliance. If the company is so concerned for them, why hasn't it put up a port-a-potty even?
Lazy, lazy reporting.

Oakland has a lot of heart to it. Oakland is a very proud city for all races but for black folks, it's got so much pride and so much to celebrate. Oakland is proud and for good reason too. It's the home of the black panther party, home of the Black Muslim bakery, home of many famous black musicians and music groups such as Toni Tone Tone, Too Short, Luniz, Dru Down, Mc Hammer, The Pointers Sisters, Sly and the Family Stone, and many more. It's also home to a large number of many successful black owned businesses and I know this for a fact cause I'm from the Bay Area and I know Oakland very well. Oakland also has positive things going on in its black community, big time. Kingston 11 is carrying on a rich tradition.
There is nothing more natural than letting marijuana grow outdoors under the sun. Marijuana grown outdoors have enhanced taste and potency, plus they bear more buds than when grown indoors. Its sad that some farmers have to choose to grow indoors because of the state of marijuana legalization today.

Thank you for the article! We featured it in our podcast episode. If anyone wants to hear our thoughts on this. Please visit, http://www.360bayarea.com/episode-9!
DINO or not, there's not much progressive about the Democratic Party. If anything at all.
Feinstein is more like a dinosaur than a DINO. Her ideas are ancient and tend towards violence and repression far more than civil liberty or rights.
In addition she's definitely a one percenter, filthy rich and very out-of-touch with ordinary folks.
I totally support Myre's work to Ban The Box.
But I can't help but notice that she's also on the planning commission and regularly blocks projects where she is involved with the negotiations when they don't go in her favor.
I would be incredibly surprised if this doesn't get killed in the planning commission by her, costing us millions of dollars in investment.
I so love my horoscope this week! Brilliant!
In was born and raised in Oakland, and live with my wife and kid in our home in the Laurel. The outrage in this page is ridiculous and misplaced. I've been waiting for a spot like this beer garden here for over 20 years. I can't wait for my family and I to become regulars there.
A charter school can cut corners that a public school cannot - in this case, a thorough environmental review before putting children into a facility.
Why don't you rally to support an Alliance Metals in you neighborhood ?
I am sure that these people, and of course you and your neighbors, will be very happy with this relationship.
Was there any testing data on the tap water safety at the site?
I look forward to this beer garden coming to my neighborhood. Congratulations Paul for fulfilling your dream.
Also Sequoia Diner is the best breakfast and lunch ever!
I just wish they were open 7 days a week!
