“The reality in San Francisco is that tens of thousands of residents have been denied access to different Internet service providers,” Supervisor Mark Farrell said. “I fundamentally believe competition is a good thing that will ultimately drive prices down and improve Internet access across all of San Francisco.”
When Kevin Hsiung moved into his brand-new apartment on San Francisco’s Potrero Hill, he wanted what every tenant wants: the best deal on Internet service. On Tuesday, Supervisor Mark Farrell will introduce legislation that would require property owners to give building access to all state-licensed providers. “The reality in San Francisco is...
"I AM HUMAN art exhibit. This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, businesses, places, events and incidents are the products of the artist’s imagination used in a fictitious manner. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead or actual events is purely coincidental and skewed by your biased worldview.
The pendulum has clearly swung too far in the law-and-order direction, at the expense of liberty and justice
When the deep freeze of helplessness sets in, a light appears to warm the heart. With the deepest gratitude for the beauty in this world, I unfreeze my frozen soul and maybe yours if you value a little thaw… the light that shines through… soft simple & lenient
I AM HUMAN is a fictional art installation through the socialization of costs and privatization of the prophets. The way things are... The way I wish they were... The way
by Asya Abdrahman, a San Francisco, mixed media artist

Music by Los Sirenas www.facebook.com/lossirenas/?f...
Los Sirenas is a band of queer women of color who were brought together with the guidance of their generous ancestors. This trio creates a musical sacred space on stage and plays to communities that are battling against homophobia, misogyny and white supremacy. LS's fierce expressions call out to empower their sexual and political identities while venting turbulent moments of heart break. Their sound is described as a political neo soul remix with saxophone accents, earth roots and raw vocals."
Just learned about Human Streets from Bryan Goebel and Peter Traughber:
"San Franciscans are walking and biking more than ever but our auto-dominated streets aren’t transforming fast enough to meet the demand for healthier and sustainable transportation. While the city is making progress, there’s still a dearth of political will to get things done and get them done quicker.
If you’ve pedaled between a car door and moving traffic on Valencia Street, or stepped into a crosswalk on Geary Boulevard recently, you know how frightening it can be. 2016 is set to go down as a record year for traffic deaths. So far, 27 people have died in traffic collisions this year. That is on course to make 2016 the worst year for traffic deaths since 2009. This public health crisis is not being given the urgency it deserves.
To spur the city into quicker action, we need more activism and more advocacy journalism. That’s why we’re launching Human Streets, a daily news site for safe streets issues. We’ll turn up the heat on city officials who fail to take action to change our streets and achieve zero deaths on our streets by 2024, the goal known as Vision Zero."
