Re: “Craig & MacGregor & Friends

This is one of the best deals in town. All you can eat from Bacheesos in Berkeley for $5 and listen to great music from the best Jazz/Soul/Blues band on any Wednesday anywhere!

Re: “El Jarro Mexican Cafe

I judge Mexican restaurants by their Chili Rellenos, and they are simply the BEST at El Jarro!! Get ready with a serving of soup, hearty and flavorful, while soaking in the atmosphere and decor. Feels like home, even to this Anglo, longing for past memories in the Gulf.

Re: “Inception

I agree with the reviewer. There are plenty of flaws in the believability of some of the ideas and the foundation of knowledge that Nolan draws his movie about dreams from that seem to just be arbitrarily placed for plot points but, the largest flaw is in his understanding of visuals being used to communicate the sensational aspect of dreams. Unlike Satoshi Kon's Paprika which inception greatly steals from, inception does not utilize visual communication to portray the difference between a dream or even the similarities of life and dreaming and how dreams and reality are blurred. Everything is portrayed in a non-visual way. He just tells us these ideas about dreams and shows dreams the same as life, and if the concept is that it is impossible to decipher the difference between dreams and waking life he does not use visuals to show that as well. Christopher Nolan just steals ideas that he finds interesting from great art to make them into his tone deaf and action-filled blockbuster. The problem is not that his movies are boring the problem is that his movies seem to be intellectual and different from what we usually see when they are just like any other action packed blockbuster.

Re: “Report: Berkeley Police Six-Times More Likely to Use Force Against Black People

I understand folks here aren't too familiar with facts but blacks and hispanics do commit a disproportionate amount of crime. They also on average have lower IQs. Which means they're incapable of learning and need to be disciplined like children.

Ha.

Re: “Vast New Bay Area Bike-Share Program Is Everywhere ... Except Deep East Oakland

This is a public facing program that ignores half of the city. Cost is a function of design and target customer. How about modeling to higher utilization rates in affluent areas in order to subsidize a few smaller stations in east Oakland. You could also sell group passes at discounted rates to drive adoption. And the safety argument doesn't make sense. People ride bikes all of the time. 15 yrs from now we will question why low income residents in Oakland have higher obesity rates and transportation costs.

Re: “Oakland Police Hold Secret Ceremony Honoring Several Officers Accused of Mishandling Celeste Guap Sex-Crimes Investigation

To garry ovalbach and charlie pine, you're wrong. There are many Oaklanders who will not call the police because they have been abused by police in the past. And that, exactly, is the point--we cannot trust the police to be even-handed and honest. They simply are not trustworthy. Nor, now, is our mayor.

Re: “Report: Berkeley Police Six-Times More Likely to Use Force Against Black People

We should remember that every time we push back against the police, they get meaner. They're not going to admit to anything.

Re: “Vast New Bay Area Bike-Share Program Is Everywhere ... Except Deep East Oakland

The people who design plan and programs to accelerate our ascent to Amsterdam are totally out of touch with the needs and desires of neighborhoods of color. They have no clue and actually dismiss the fact that not everybody in the world leads their lives by smart phones, laptops, Starbucks and Uber. They don't understand that when they have those obligatory "community meetings" in deep East Oakland, turnout may be sparse because some folks have 2 or 3 jobs and get up early because they work for low pay. Some folks have no child care options. Some folks are too busy just keeping the lights on and food on the table. Some folks lack adequate safe transportation. Spending 2 or 3 evening hours during the week at a meeting about a bicycle program is just not a life priority. In some neighborhoods, adults who use bikes fall into 2 main groups. Group one are the folks you see riding to low paying jobs in the early mornings every day. Group two are the guys who provide underground retail opportunities in the neighborhoods. In some places, hardly anyone rides bikes because they are seen as a pleasant recreational option. Some people don't have an extra $5 a day for a bike ride. If you want an effective program, you need to talk to the people and figure out what works for them. You can't force fee your pinhead utopian dreams into their daily reality.

Re: “Report: Berkeley Police Six-Times More Likely to Use Force Against Black People

Greenwood says: "My own sense, as a 30-year Berkeley cop, is that we dont have racial animus, Greenwood said at a public forum last night." Greenwood's 'own sense' is a white privileged sense. He is not really quaified to 'sense' the reality of racial profiling by BPD.

I also note that since he scored the gig as BPD Chief of Police, Greenwood appears to have packed on some pounds. Could it be the gig is stressing him out, leading to stress eating? It is my own sense that choosing him to be BPD chief was a poor, insider choice, that he was picked to be plain, white and boring. He's a placeholder whose job it is to defend the status quo without acknowleding the reality of how BPD cops treat persons of color.

And a 'module' in an 8 hour training is what, an hour? Two hours? The chief makes it clear that BPD cops are not getting the right training, including him.
