Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
As if to illustrate my point, I just received the following information from a reputable cohort who is involved in this relief effort: "Just found out that the major City-approved fundraiser for the San Pablo fire survivors is going to be disbursed in the form of.....drumroll....Target gift cards. On May 12th. I can't even.
But wait, you wanna know why? Because people are "too likely to use cash to fund drug and alcohol habits." Let's just unpack that one while people run out of money for motels this week, and get picked up for sleeping in cars, and our encampments on Northgate, Brush, Magnolia, and Wood Streets grow ever larger. "
The way the City of Oakland has neglected and dismissed these victims, our neighbors, is atrocious and serves as yet another glaring, unvarnished example of the depth and pervasiveness of gentrification and displacement at the hands of our leaders. It is sickening in it's obviousness and disgracefully unkind.
when the public compares the welfare of blacks to whites, they do not consider the more stable members of the black community, they always focus on the noise that is being made to draw attention like the celebrities and athletes, etc. there is a mainstream in the black community as with the general community where every body is not making noise but just going about their business and living their own lives. if you were to ask many of these regulars if they had the chance to return to the days of the forties, fifties and sixties in this country many would gladly return to those days. everything is not about comparing these with those as some of us live our lives as absolutely as we can and are satisfied to do that without comparing themselves to others. we call this the good life and to be able to live the good life free of constant comparisons where it is already determined who will come up short. when i first entered college in the deep south, i know for a fact there were teachers in white schools that had nothing to do with degrees or credentials. it was just white business and no one else's. but, i had to get the degrees and then come back to the black community for sharing. with some cultures, there is the notion that if you keep those that might pose a threat to you in the dark, you won't have to do much yourself to stay ahead. keeping blacks in the dark via slavery, segregation, seperation and satanism has resulted in a general knowledge that any race, not just the white race in america can out pace blacks in this country. that is because all they do is pull out the comparison charts and as usual blacks always come up short. if blacks do not treat themselves as absolutes and equals, other races wil not either. why look around for god in someone else? it begins with you, it continues with you and it will end with you.
First Student does indeed have a contract with OUSD, but it's to pick up the disabled students. The AC Transit buses are for the clipper card students.
Rent control only became an issue after the Bay Area population exceeded the carrying capacity of the land.
Interesting, most families that have CCS feel they do not have adequate care, especially through their Medical Therapy program.
Our experience has been terrible, it has delayed treatment, we have so many "stories"
We have no other choice than to look forward to the day she ages out. A year and a half or so. The general consensus is it's a program to cut costs, an even more limited HMO than Medical Managed Care. My daughter has both. We've had more results with MediCal.
They CCS are also ill equipped to handle teen clients, since no peds Doctor will take a patient over 18. Those kids, young adults get left out in the cold. They're required to provide care outside their neteork, but the wait is absurd.
To call it coordinated care would be negligent.
Beautiful! Peace be unto you my sisters.
Ahh my, you mean the Muslim faith is not open minded and kind to women? Shocking, I tell you.
What the City Council will also have to decide is how to deal with further Federal funding exclusions based on Oakland's status as a "Sanctuary City." Pandering to illegal immigrants and spending large sums on them is not going to go unnoticed by Trumpkins.
Thank you, Naomi. I mostly responded to the headline, which, in typical EastBayExpress fashion, hinted at dire deeds, nefarious schemes, and chicanery in public office. Then the artice went on to state that actually the same dead rays might have been counted several times, basically making the headline untrue. There's no scientific study I know of on fish population kills and population densities that indicate anything like the headline indicates. In my opinion, the Lake is by far the cleanest, most pollution free, sediment free and "unstinky" that it has been since I moved here 28 years ago.
I think the real question is: Should a politically dominant, privileged group be able to vote people out of their homes for no reason and without due process? The City of Alameda council is deciding what are our true values.
first student bus company has a $5mil budget supplied by ousd..they should be able to pick up the kids
Ernest, thank you for your comments on Lake Merritt's improvement, a major civic effort under Measure DD. I think you slightly mistook part of the article. While people concerned about Lake M. may consider better management for the floodgates (operated by Alameda County flood control staff, I believe) the tide tubes are in Berkeley at Aquatic Park.
Lake Merritt is neither a lake nor a tidal estuary, though it pretends to be both. It was simply as stream flowing into the Bay until the lake was dug out. It has always been a problematic body of water. For many years Oaklanders flushed their toilets into it, and threw junk, old cars, and motor oil into it. The current state of the Lake is by far the best it has been since it was built. This article appears to be blaming the City of Oakland is a very passive way for some perceived flaw (tide tubes) and ignoring the amazing work that has been done there. The "aeration fountain" is a joke. In order to properly aerate the Lake, you'd need to cover it with them. The end by the Pavillion and Glen Echo Creek are the far end the furthest from cleansing ocean water, and the most polluted and stagnant. This is not a fault of anyone, if you want to avoid this situation, drain the lake and let the creek flow again. Finally, the salinity levels of the lake vary by day to day, and all over the lake. This is the least conducive environment for any aquatic creature and one of the reasons the lake does not have a strong fish population. It's a semi stagnant lagoon or slough, to be precise. Prettied up by a nice name.

Very well written article, thank you. Nice to learn more about Lake Merritt.
The Environmental Academy at Oakland High bears recognition. O-High is one of the least recognized, most improving programs in OUSD.
The owner is Narrow minded and he doesn't know how to attract customers. I mercy on them. I went the last time for a clip and they did not have anything. Instead of that they were trying to sell me their own things. They are too expensive as well that's why they don't have a lot of people. If they don't change their tactic, at the end they will be forced to close their bike shop...
8Chris Stethlik. I have nothing to do with oranizing this event. I am sorry the farmer's market was shut down. This is not good.
I am volunteering my time to make this event peacful. If your police had stopped the violent leftists from running wild in your streets you would not have this problem.
You need to contact your police department and demand they protect you and your property. If they did this on Feb 2 we would not have had to come to your town and do this.
The Berkeley police passive policing strategy failed you in a big way.
JJ noire. I sence a lot of pent up frustration and anger. I am not compairing my self to any free speech activists of the past. I am just trying to protect the security of people who would like to speak their mind. Why is this so infuriating to you?. I will be working with law enforcment professionals from across the country to try to ensure a safe event.
A coward is someone who makes acusations and hurls insults online, while allowing American citizens to be assaulted in the streets of their own city.
The left has so femanized their men that real men have to step up from other states and cities to defend your citizens rights. Keep typing JJ you won't see anything from me Saturday I will be busy doing the job you and your feminized men refuse to do. Maybe you can bake some cookies for us.
