Re: “How Nature Heals: Why East Bay Doctors Are Prescribing The Outdoors To People Of Color

Thank you for this article, bringing attention to a new way of addressing this issue through the healthcare community. Dr. Zarr recently did a webinar through the American Society of Landscape Architects to share about the program he has helped to develop in Washington DC. It was a collaboration of the Children's Outdoor Environments and the Healthcare and Therapeutic Garden ASLA networks. The more we all talk about it, the more heads will come together to pave the way for solutions!

Re: “Letter of The Week: Our Readers Chime In On Driving While High

If anything, there should be little or *NO* parking for this brew pub. Instead, take the existing parking and fill it with bike racks - as a bicyclist and pedestrian, I'd rather have people getting home after a night of drinking in some way other than DRIVING! I guess the neighborhood NIMBYs thought their housing ownership extended to the street in front of their property but - and this is so sad to reveal to them - it does not.

You said above "and the fact that they were told Keak da Sneak, a Bay Area Legend, would not be performing, only to take the stage." Not clear, did he show up and play after all?

Re: “'Homeless Lives Matter Too??': People Sleeping On Oakland's Streets Still Waiting For Government Response To Growing East Bay Crisis

Oh, you mean actually ask all the people (renters, artists,event promoters) and corporations to pay TAXES? Is that what you mean, Edward Cervantes? Not JUST the home owners?

And yes, too many of the homeless have been there long term. I know there are more than a few who have been there since I moved to Oakland over 20 years ago. They were there due to mental/emotional issues and are still there for those reasons. Treatment has to be paid for by someone.

Oakland was financially gutted decades ago and is kept that way by a bread and circuses mindset today.

Only by bringing in money can the needed services be paid for. That means being friendly to new development and new businesses; not just supporting what's already here. That is nowhere near enough to reverse the damage and neglect of decades.

Re: “Hayward Police Chief: There Is No Video of Fatal Police Shooting of 16-Year-Old Elena Mondragon

The shooting of pregnant 16 year old Elena Mondragon occurred in City View apartment complex owened by Essex Property Trust, a multimillion dollar cooperation. City View is an area where criminal activities are continuously growing out of the management's control, as they downplays crime to its residents in order to continue increasing the rent. I don't condone the shooting of Mondragon for being in that area with the wrong friends. Yet, the shooting took place in the City View community comprises of over 500 units where criminal background checks in the past was not done in order to move in. If I was a police officer, I'd be quick to think of protecting myself first in that area.

God has been very grateful to me and my family. 5months ago i was seriously searching for a loan worth $90,000.00 to buy a house in the USA. And i was scammed by various lenders online, but 2weeks ago i saw a post about ATM blank cards. I doubted this but decided to give it a try by Contacting them through there emails on(creditcardhackers011@gmail.com) they responded with their guidelines on how the card works. i'was assured that the card can withdraw $5000 instant & was credited with $500,000.00 so i requested for one & paid the purchasing fee to obtain the card. 72 hrs later, i was shock to see the DHL agent in my resident with a parcel{card} i signed and went back inside and confirmed the card works after the agent left. This is no doubts because i have the card & has made used of the card. This hackers are abroed based hackers set out to help people with financial freedom!!

No medications or treatments ever really did anything for me (i tried them all no one work. but I was actually able to completely cure HERPES naturally after countless hours of online research. What worked for me is as follows: I saw Dr EDWIN Information online that he normally cure and treat disease and infirmities with his Herbal Medicine, I never really believed the people who where recommending him thou i saw on blog about 6 people where also testifying on how they were cured by Dr EDWIN, and still Ellen recommend Dr EDWIN who uses herbal medication to cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS and gave me his email, so i mail him He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly.Before I knew what is happening after two weeks the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got vanished. so if you are also heart broken and also need a help, you can also email him: draziengbe@outlook.com. if you are infected with any disease like HIV,AIDS, CANCER,HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS, or any other disease you can also be happy like me by contacting.....

Re: “Casey Affleck A Misfit Again in Manchester By The Sea

I agree with the review. There was no character arc (he shows one emotion throughout - whoa is me), nor can I sympathize with a protagonist who is unlikeable ("My life sucks so I'm going to pick a fight and beat the crap out of you for no reason.") And the ending is as exciting and rewarding as a two-by-four (The kid doesn't want to move away from his friends and his legal guardian the fight picker doesn't want to move back to his hometown, so what to do? They both stay in their respective towns and the boy lives with friends of the family. Wow, that was tough to resolve and oh such an exciting conclusion.)

Re: “How City Hall Crushed Occupy Oakland

Saying Occupy Oakland or the Occupy Movement failed is a bit much since Occupy meant revolution; i.e. a displacement of existing faculties of authority in finance and law enforcement. Every entity with power in those two organs of society focused their attention on ending Occupy. To suggest that it failed is to compare the struggle to a contest with a time limit, at the end of which a winner and a loser is declared. The legacy of Occupy is that hundreds of massive demonstrations have occurred without permits since 2011. Now, the occupation of public space continues as a tactic of resistance to neoliberal strategies of privatization and the cutting of government services. Student debt strikes are a direct offshoot of Occupy. Murders by police officers are recorded and tabulated since the movement began. And there are certainly grounds for an argument that the surge of neo-fascism and the humiliation it brings down on the Right is a reaction to Occupy and its offshoots. We should continue to evaluate the events of Sept. 2011 to Jan. 2012 from any and all perspectives, but its not yet time to put Occupy on the shelf. As Muhammad Ali Jinnah and his faction contributed to the achievements of Mohandas Gandhi, and as Stokley Carmichael and Malcolm X did the same for Martin Luther King, Jr., so may the radicals of Oakland do for crypto-revolutionaries who wish Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren would stop playin.

Re: “City Emails: Many Dublin Residents Think Undocumented Immigrants Are 'Felons' Who Will Turn Their Town Into a 'Cesspool'

By the way Gary Patton, I was just looking through the old Milo Berkeley post and was surprised to see you comment there too (what can I say, I'm always late when it comes to the news or looking through articles), and I know you're probably not going to read this post, but if you do, I just want to tell you and everyone that anarchism itself is not as scary as it sounds and not just for white males; it's not just about breaking windows either. People of all races adhere to this centuries old political ideology, including Asians, African-Americans, Native Americans and Hispanics. I recommend you do some research on it; wikipedia's a good start. You can also visit an anarchist bookfair in SF. Trust me, anarchism is not that scary. As a Chinese-American, philosophically, I personally base my anarchism in Taoism and the Buddhist tradition of non-violence.

Some people end up Marxist or liberal or conservative or alt-right , but I ended up as an anarchist feminist (anarcha-feminist) because I grew up in a very diverse area, stayed in Dublin long enough, faced and witnessed sexism, racism and bullying everywhere in the Bay Area (including San Francisco), ask why some people are homeless and some are not, paid attention to the news, and took critical thinking and history courses in high school and college. Anarchism just came naturally to me as it is anti-authoritarian, based on direct democracy, and social and economic equality.

So to bring all of this back to this topic, I hate the fact that what was once a growingly diverse sleepy little quint Irish town (with awesome St. Patrick's Day parades) waiting to become the famous little sister to Hayward, San Leandro, Oakland and Berkeley has now become famous as a town full of bigotry, which is far from the truth and much more nuanced, because not every single resident in Dublin or Livermore or San Ramon thinks the same way or eats the same food (part-whole fallacy). I judge a place by whether I feel comfortable expressing my far-left feminist anarchist views as a person of color in public. Dublin has always been a place where I feel comfortable doing so everywhere I go without people screaming at me or giving me weird or dirty looks. Maybe they hide their feelings well and secretly want me gone, but I really doubt that. I know some people in Dublin espouse racist or prejudiced sentiments, but just as many are against it, as the article states.

Any plan that does not include treatment for mental illness and drug abuse will fail. We have seen plenty of articles by EBX blaming these tent cities on lack of affordable housing, while completly ignoring the elphant in the room.
