Imagining a Past Future
On any given workday in downtown Oakland, thousands of commuters enter and exit the 12th Street City Center station of the Bay Area Rapid Transit, or BART, rushing past a large bronze bust of John B. Williams.

She paused. Eventually, Dellums promised, “they all are gonna walk to you.”

Public transport is in decline in many wealthy cities - Missing the bus
In southern California, public transport is heavily used by poor immigrants, particularly immigrants from Mexico and Central America. But research by Michael Manville and others at the University of California, Los Angeles, finds that this group are rushing onto the roads behind their own steering-wheels. Between 2000 and 2015 the proportion of Mexican immigrant households without a car fell from 16% to 5%.

The Beat Generation: Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Gary Snyder, Diane di Prima look back at an American cultural movement - Washington Post
More than a half-century after their emergence, the Beats still offer up wild style, a sense of freedom and wonder for the natural world almost unrivaled in postwar literature. But their work has perhaps been more misinterpreted than nearly any literary group in history — partially because there was no consistent ideology binding them. As Ferlinghetti put it succinctly: “The Beat Generation was just Allen Ginsberg’s friends.”

California Über Alles | Ann Friedman
"Believe me, I understand the temptation to separate yourself: it’s true that I am different from the people I grew up with who chose to stay in Iowa. Part of that difference is, now, an economic and cultural advantage. So I have a dual responsibility: to see that California actually makes good on its professed values, and to ensure that those values incorporate the rest of America. Refusing to rationalize elite neglect is the real rebellion."

Spending on pet funerals increases in Sacramento and beyond - Sac Paws -
Despite a shaky economy, owners are expected to spend almost $51 billion on their pets in 2011, up from about $48 billion in 2010. Sixty-two percent of U.S. households, or 72.9 million homes, own a pet according to a survey by the America Pet Products Association.

Numbers are not available on how much owners spend on pet burial services, but those in the industry say they have seen a jump.

Consolidation Considered for MediaNews, Freedom Communications -
MediaNews Group Inc., publisher of more than 50 daily U.S. newspapers including the Denver Post, is eyeing a merger with Freedom Communications Inc. and possibly several other newspaper companies, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Affiliated Media Inc., MediaNews' holding company, filed for bankruptcy protection a year ago and emerged in March under the ownership of dozens of lenders including the investment firm Alden Global Capital. Alden also is part of a group of lenders that now owns Freedom Communications, which publishes the Orange County Register. Freedom emerged from bankruptcy protection last April.

The person familiar with the matter said Alden wants to roll at least some of its various newspaper hodings into a single company. Alden was part of a group of financial firms that emerged last year as the winner of the auction of the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News. [...]

Capitol Journal: We should have kept Davis -
"We're all part of a system basically designed not to work," says Democratic state Treasurer Bill Lockyer, Sacramento's most experienced politician, who received more votes in November than any candidate for any office.

"That's why we have three branches and two [legislative] houses. They're meant to have government not do much and theoretically leave people alone. In California, we've added lots of complications: The two-thirds [majority] vote, term limits, the initiative.

"We've complicated the system while people's expectations about what government should do have grown exponentially."

Your city sucks! (And so does mine) –
For the record I’ve lived in three legitimate technology hubs: Seattle, San Francisco, and Boulder. Additionally, I’ve spent a considerable amount of time in Portland. Each one of them had its benefits and detractions. Ultimately, I’m settling down in San Francisco (after moving to it, away from it, and subsequently back 3 times now). Why? It’s simple, despite all of the bullshit that is involved in this incestuous, crowded, echo chamber of a dirty ass city, it is Mecca for nerds. Period. All of the pieces of the proverbial startup pie are here: money, history, talent, schools, partners, clients, press, etc. I don’t have to wait for any part of that ecosystem to grow or blossom. It’s already here and I’m far to lazy too grow or foster any part of those for an entire city.

Stoners Against Legalization | Feature | East Bay Express
But Soares speaks to an even bigger psychic divide that's more ancient: the ongoing rivalry between Northern and Southern California. She speculates that the north's lax policies will create a climate where Los Angeles is beholden to Oakland for its pot needs. Since Lee is from there, he will profit off the restrictive climate down south.

"For me, it's great Oakland is going to have a measure for them, but they are pushing it on the rest of the state," said Soares. "I just don't think that this proposition is written good enough for the rest of the state to help Oakland out."

Mapping out alternative universes for Texas
What if we had made Cuba a state in 1902? A major Cold War near-catastrophe could have been averted, but would the United States have had to put down a socialist uprising in the late 1950s anyway?

What if water-rich northernmost California had split off to become Shasta in 1957 and got rich selling water to what was left of California? Humboldt County suddenly has a lot more money and power.

What if Brigham Young had gotten his wish for a state called Deseret, which would have encompassed modern-day Utah, nearly all of Nevada, most of Arizona, a hunk of New Mexico and the part of California that includes San Diego? Hard to see polygamy dying without a serious fight in a state that large.

It's semi-fiction about the decade from 1967 to 1977 and the Asian American community. The book consists of ten novellas which has one of my illustrations at the beginning of each.

I used a technique that I never formally used before and that was with a Chinese brush and Chinese ink. Then going back in there with a wash to get the middle tones. I did some photoshopping on the images afterwards.

Final edition: Twilight of the American newspaper—By Richard Rodriguez (Harper's Magazine)
[...] In the nineteenth-century newspaper, the relationship between observer and observed was reciprocal: the newspaper described the city; the newspaper, in turn, was sustained by readers who were curious about the strangers that circumstance had placed proximate to them. So, I suppose, it is incomplete to notice that the San Francisco Chronicle has become remiss in its obituary department. Of four friends of mine who died recently in San Francisco, not one wanted a published obituary or any other public notice taken of his absence. This seems to me a serious abrogation of the responsibility of living in a city and as good an explanation as any of why newspapers are dying. All four of my friends requested cremation; three wanted their ashes consigned to the obscurity of Nature. Perhaps the cemetery is as doomed in America as the newspaper, and for the same reason: we do not imagine death as a city.

We no longer imagine the newspaper as a city or the city as a newspaper. [...]

Growth of city neighborhoods
San Francisco may have a reputation as a world-class city, but it is also one of the biggest small towns you can find anywhere. According to the city's official Web site, San Francisco has more than 40 individual neighborhoods. The Chamber of Commerce counts 48, and any San Franciscan can tell you there are more than that, from the famous to the obscure.

The best-known neighborhoods - Chinatown, North Beach, the Castro - are known everywhere. A lot of San Franciscans couldn't locate Little Hollywood or the Sherwood Forest on a map.

It turns out, however, that San Francisco was always divided into neighborhoods, even back before the place was called San Francisco.

The locals often reply, "You don't want to live here. It looks like a city, but it's really a small village. Everyone knows what you're doing" Oh, OK. If you say so. It's still beautiful.

In Los Angeles, Mexican Songs Without Borders -
Narcocorridos make you feel good, Pablo had told me, at a Oaxacan restaurant in downtown Los Angeles over mole and horchata, a sugary rice drink. Pablo has a sweet tooth. He also has a taste for bitter, bloody narco songs.

It has nothing to do with dealing or using drugs yourself, he said. It’s the stories — of power and vengeance, of lust and betrayal — all to that happy beer-hall beat. If you’ve had a bad day at work, you’re sad, or lonely, a jolt of corrido picks you up.

When he hears them, Pablo said, “Oh man, I feel like I don’t give a damn,” using another word for damn. “I feel free.” He laughed.

Pablo’s not a drug dealer or user. He’s not even Mexican. He’s from El Salvador. He was right, I thought — people everywhere have been writing, singing and drawing consolation from desolate songs forever.

Ask these Okies-in-reverse why they traded the Golden State for the Sooner State – named for settlers who came there sooner than the Homestead Act allowed – and you'll hear a lot of similar themes: easier to find a job; cheaper to buy or rent a home; better place to make a fresh start. Ask them why they stay in Oklahoma and they'll add to that list a deep optimism that it's a place where things are about to take off.

Ronald T. Takaki dies at 70; pioneer in the field of ethnic studies - Los Angeles Times
Takaki was hired and in 1967 taught the university's first African American history class.

When the young Japanese American, sporting a crew cut, walked into the classroom for the first time, the students, some wearing Afros and dashikis, fell silent. One student finally spoke up.

"Well, Prof. Takaki," the student said in a challenging tone, "what revolutionary tools are we going to learn in this course?" Takaki replied: "We're going to study the history of the U.S. as it relates to African Americans. We're going to strengthen our critical-thinking skills and our writing skills. These can be revolutionary tools if we make them so.' "

Seattle Named 'Most Wired' City by Forbes - PC World
Despite its reputation as a hotbed of tech, California didn't land a single city in the top 10. San Francisco came in at No. 11, a significant fall from last year's No. 4 ranking. While the City by the Bay is tops in broadband adoption -- a good indication of a Net-savvy citizenry -- it has relatively few Wi-Fi hotspots or companies providing high-speed Internet access, Forbes reports. San Diego, Los Angeles, and Sacramento were ranked No. 12, 13, and 19, respectively.

California Media Collaborative: What a Tribune Company bankruptcy could mean for California
Singleton's approach -- which is to buy up newspapers in a single market area, and then share reporters, editing staff, office space, and other costs -- may be the only new potentially viable business model to have emerged from the catastrophic restructuring that the media industry is currently undergoing. This approach does not guarantee journalistic quality -- but it does offer strategy, albeit a despressing one, for how to cut costs.

What's significant is that 29 of Singleton's daily newspapers are in Northern California,and only 16 are in Southern California -- where the majority of Californians live.

Bringing together the LA Times, the San Diego Union Tribune and the Orange County Register would, in effect, replicate in Southern California Singleton's organizational structure in Northern California, but on a more ambitious scale than anything he has thus far attempted.

But then in October, Dean Singleton, The Associated Press’s chairman and the head of the MediaNews Group — which counts The Pasadena Star-News, The Denver Post and The Detroit News in its stable of 54 daily newspapers — told the Southern Newspaper Publishers Association that his company was looking into outsourcing almost every aspect of publishing, including possibly having one news desk for all of his papers, “maybe even offshore.”

Noting that most preproduction work for MediaNews’s papers in California is already outsourced to India, cutting costs by 65 percent, Singleton advised, “If you need to offshore it, offshore it,” and said after the speech, “In today’s world, whether your desk is down the hall or around the world, from a computer standpoint, it doesn’t matter.”
