My thanks to @EskSF for his tireless reporting on @sfdbi’s corruption, @FBISanFrancisco for raiding the dept & helping force out its corrupt boss, & to @Scott_Wiener for passing #SB828.

Thanks to all this, SF is finally implementing digital permitting! /1

Why did it take an @FBISanFrancisco raid to finally implement digital permitting in #SanFrancisco? /2
Maybe 'cuz if it “eliminated a system in which forests’ worth of papers are pushed from one desk to the next, it would’ve ruined the cottage industry of connected permit expediters who...always manage to get their folders placed on the top of the pile”/3

Ms. Hu’s niece says she was just trying to get her mail. 🧵⬇️ #sanfrancisco Image
The senior tried to escape but succumbed to her injuries. Nobody saw her until about an hour later.

“I want ppl to know my aunt was very brave & she did what she could try & survive” says her niece.

"No Hindi, no Hindu, no Hindustan" | This is the Khalistani gurudwara in Sacramento where two people were shot

This is what Khalistani militants are preaching inside the Sacramento gurdwara where two Sikhs fired bullets on each other on Sunday.
#Khalistan ideology only bring #violence, #crime and #hate into the society | They are teaching young #Sikh #children to eliminate #Hindi, #Hindu and #Hindustan (#India).

Dangerous indoctrination of impressionable minds.

A teammate visiting San Francisco for an offsite called me frantically last night. After dinner at Fisherman’s Wharf they came back to a smashed car window and 2 stolen backpacks. $10K in gear lost, passports gone, etc. #SanFrancisco
“Laptop bags were in the trunk, nothing visible from the street”, a typical description of a smash & grab, yet thieves were able to find the specific car and knew to pull the rear seat down and reach into the trunk… how?
I explained, “these aren’t homeless ransoming smashing windows. These are professionals using blue tooth scanners to find laptop bags. And idle iPad, Bose headphones, etc all emit Bluetooth”

‘The idea of a trip to the moon, an irresistible combination of high adventure and escape . . . has always fascinated the people of the earth . . . In this...’ Illustration as reprinted in Bonestell & Ley, The Conquest o
century . . . men have seriously thought of getting to the moon by rocket. Shown here is the scientifically realistic rocket journey conceived by [Bonestell], a Hollywood special-effects artist and amateur astronomer whose paintings of Saturn's moons [were] published in [1944].

I want to thank the city of #Calgary for being such a gracious host as I attended the @recovery_summit this week. The "Alberta Model" is a blueprint for addiction treatment and recovery in North America. #ROSC #AlbertaModel Image
This model embraces the full continuum of care from harm reduction, including medically assisted treatment and OPS sites, all the way to residential treatment while keeping the focus on building recovery capital. ImageImageImageImage
With a plan to add thousands of beds in recovery based therapeutic communities, this model offers hope to those experiencing homelessness and substance use disorder. (addiction) by offering transitional housing after treatment. ImageImageImage

Brock Purdy, QB do San Francisco 49ers sofreu uma lesão no cotovelo direito na derrota para o Eagles na final da conferência.
Depois de realizar ressonância magnética, a equipe confirmou a ruptura total do
LIGAMENTO COLATERAL ULNAR (LCU).

Vamos falar um pouco sobre ela
🧶⬇️
O ligamento colateral ulnar (LCU) , está localizado na parte interna do cotovelo. Ele conecta o osso do braço (úmero) a um osso do antebraço (ulna).
É uma grossa faixa triangular localizada no cotovelo. Todas as três faixas servem para limitar o estresse na articulação.
Com o passar do tempo o LCU pode desenvolver pequenas lesões e chegar a tal ponto em que o ligamento já não suporta mais sustentar a força exercida nos arremessos a ponto de romper totalmente

Some piece of crap kicked a woman’s car door in at South SALINAS’ Nob Hill grocery. The woman had three kids in her car and was scared. A witness came to my house to tell me about the crime because this dude was following him on a bike. He knocked on my door and I was home.
Part 2 🤣

So I come out and this dude is talking smack to the witness, who is now a victim. The suspect comes up on my driveway and threatens the witness. So I gotta go back in my house - get my shoes on 🤣 and deal with it BUT

@SalinasPD (for once in a while) is in South.
Part 3

When I came out the door with my shoes on the suspect took off on his bike. (Yeah it’s a mentally ill unsheltered living on the Block dude). He blurts out my house number, says he will remember it and makes it down to the Temple Beth El which is at Riker and Nissen.
