Re: “Federal Judge Orders City of Oakland to Fix Internal Affairs and Criminal Investigations of Police Misconduct

One wonders exactly what the Mayor and City Administrator spend their publicly-financed time doing.

Especially in the light of the Mayor's campaign promise to make public safety the number one priority. That means making OPD work in every aspect of policing, including that small thing we call ethics.

Should we assume that the Mayor hired her pal as City Administrator because they both were fundamentally committed to improved public safety and police reform?

Or should we assume that both the Mayor and her Administrator live on Mars?

It's Affleck. Read up on it before you pathetically review it. Clearly you saw a different movie than 99% of the critics who loved it!

Re: “Oakland Police Chief Doubles-Down on Promoting the Cops Who Covered-Up the Celeste Guap Case

More business as usual, as the carcass of Oakland is picked by the vultures from every side. Burris and Henderson feast on her, OPD feasts on her, EBE feasts on her, The city bureaucrats and elected "leaders" feast on her, and the poor battered carcass is picked to the bones.

Re: “Rising Rents Threaten to Displace Oakland Nonprofits

Like all resources, office space and housing, are subject to the concept of scarcity. Oakland office space, formerly inexpensive relative to San Francisco, is now in demand. Non profits who have anticipated this sea change either by purchasing their own property OR raising their revenue opportunities will survive regardless of their missions and clients.

As an Oakland homeowner I'd prefer my city to invest their funds in street repairs, fire suppression, police, and recreation services for youth and adults. I believe these non profits all have virtue, but the blunt reality is that market forces have made their office spaces more costly, not any conspiracy- real or imagined.

Re: “California Took a Big Step Closer to Regulating the Cannabis Industry

Anyone can grow hemp in California. There are just a few hoops through which one must jump first. Biggest one: finding a researcher who's interested in studying part of the plant you're not interested in growing - or its agroclimactic impacts, suitability as a drought crop; anything where the science doesn't require study of the plant matter itself. Set up a industrial hemp pilot research program at an accredited university. The scientist gets to conduct cutting edge research, and you get all the 'agricultural waste' aka the industrial hemp you want to grow.

In a few years it should be much simpler. But it's possible now if you're willing to put in the effort.

Re: “California Took a Big Step Closer to Regulating the Cannabis Industry

The passage of 64 included the legalization of cannabis as well as hemp just like what Colorado did. I heard California Prop 64 copied the State ballot for Colorado that included the legalization of cannabis and hemp together. Last I heard we are waiting for big brother to give us the rules, regulations and taxes to grow a plant that has over 50,000 uses.

Re: “California Took a Big Step Closer to Regulating the Cannabis Industry

When can California start to grow Hemp like we did here in Los Angeles back in 1860?

Re: “The Big Sick: When Kumail Met Emily

I thought this picture was not well written and the plot was thin when lots of nuance could have been added. And I thought the actor that played Emily was so bland that she veered into being invisible. Other than being a blandly pretty blonde, she brought nothing else to the role. I don't see a big future in movies for either of them. Comedy acts are different from film acting, eh?

Re: “Who Will Be There When You Call 911? Our Writer Plunges Into the World of For-Profit Ambulances.

Reading this article made me feel physically ill - happily, the feeling dissipated and I didn't need to call an ambulance.

It is remarkable that a 'public/private' partnership would be considered an acceptable or preferable solution for the problem: people who become ill and need transportation to a hospital. Quite simply, this should be a service provided either on a city or county level, by well paid city or county employees responsible to the taxpayers and not to their employer's bottom line. Any other solution is flushing money down the drain and selling the public - and public health - down the river.

Re: “Savage Love: Mail Bag

I sincerely didnt like the idea, but this is my way of saying thank you to the Quora user that recommended a hacker ( QUICKSOLUTION040@GMAIL.COM )

I hired him for a very private and difficult matter of helping me hack a my spouses phone and social networks and some other personal stuffs and he far exceeded my expectations. which Jeremie, helped me get the info(whatsapp, facebook, text messages, call logs etc) faster and cheaper than I had imagined. The first time we spoke, we had a very long phone consultation in he gave me all my options that he could think of to resolve my case, and he even recommended I try other options before hiring him, which shows that he is honest. I decided to hire him and I am glad I did. he is a fantastic investigator and a great person. If you need a professional, reliable and efficient hacker, then you should contact this guy ; QUICKSOLUTION040@GMAIL.COM

Re: “Oakland Police Chief Doubles-Down on Promoting the Cops Who Covered-Up the Celeste Guap Case

The citizens of Oakland deserve better. Promoting higher ups involved in coverups tells me that the police department, even with a new chief, has not changed and has no intention of changing. The coup de grace is Coleman investigating police misconduct. OPD, Mayor Schafer and City Administrator Landreth don't seem to mind maintaining the status quo. What a shame!

Re: “Arson in Oakland: Is Someone Torching New Developments?

The phrase "God gave Noah the rainbow sign, no more water the fire next time" was the source of the Baldwin quote above. It should be understood that the fire referred to in this passage was divine in nature and potential origin. The idea of humans invoking and exacting such a level of biblical judgement is cause only for concern given the arrogance and limitation endemic to mankind.
