If you woke up this morning and thought you were on Mars instead of the Bay Area, you’re definitely not alone. 

Smoke from the #CaliforniaFires has cast an orange glow over #SanFrancisco and the #EastBay.
So, what’s going on?

According to @ggweather meteorologist Jan Null, winds are pushing smoke from the north, where multiple wildfires are raging, to the south and into the Bay Area.…
Here’s some satellite footage of what the smoke looks like over the West Coast:

Hey, Bay Area (and everyone outside our bubble): it's September 1. #sanfrancisco #oakland #berkeley #rock
Live music everywhere is in peril. Here, the clubs that brought the world Green Day, The Coup, Frightwig & Fantastic Negrito may not make it. Folks have organized and are trying to help. I know nothing about the org except #RedAlertRESTART #ExtendPUA
Now the personal: If only we could get our household ANY due benefits, we'd be in business: @ThePeterCase has been a pro touring musician since the '70s, has not worked since Feb and there's no sign of going back. This isn't our story but it might be yours

@DenisRo80564491 @BarkyB1 @LorenaAD80 If you are tired of seeing "your" people cleaning schitt, quit voting @DNC #Democrats to rule over you.

You can also have all those wealthy #Democrats in #California explain why they waste so much money on fancy mansions & huge temples of high-tech!
@DenisRo80564491 @BarkyB1 @LorenaAD80 @DNC You seriously have not been paying attention if you think those are #Republicans living in #BeverlyHills & similar wealthy suburbs.

Or #Republicans running @Google, @Apple, @Facebook, @salesforce, etc.

Or controlling #SanFrancisco #LA #Sacramento #Berkeley etc.
@DenisRo80564491 @BarkyB1 @LorenaAD80 @DNC @Google @Apple @Facebook @salesforce There's @DNC #Democrat #wealth galore in California to educate all kids very well;

BUT all those #Democrat people + @SpeakerPelosi @SenKamalaHarris @SenFeinstein @RepMaxineWaters @AndrewYang

WANT to keep THEIR #wealth & #expensive lifestyles
& NOT give it away & live "lower".

A young mountain lion has been spotted in #SanFrancisco on Market near Front St. This as a very young animal - much smaller and younger than mountain lions usually are when they disperse and explore new territory. The photo shows a different cub about the same age. 1/4 A teenage mountain lion cub...
It's likely the mountain lion is confused and lost, and will soon find its way south and out of San Francisco. If you see the mountain lion - do not go near it. Give it a wide berth, slowly back away while facing the lion, do not run!, and call us 415-554-9400. 2/4
If you have a child or small dog with you - pick them up. If the mountain lion approaches - make yourself 'big' wave your arms, shout, throw something, back away slowly while facing the animal, and do not run. We are monitoring the situation and consulting with experts. 3/4

On March 9, @jbkrell organized a letter to @NYCMayor urging him to implement social distancing. NYC public health community could not get the mayor's ear as @DrKatzNYCHH downplayed seriousness of the epidemic & @NYGovCuomo resisted shutdown as well. 1/…
.@NYCSpeakerCoJo urged a shutdown several days later. 2/…
But still @DrKatzNYCHH said on March 10th: “no proof that closures will help stop the spread,” in an email to the mayor. 3/…

#COVID19 e una semplice osservazione che non vuole avere pretesa di correlazione:

- New York (stato con T simili alle nostre): 202.000 casi / 10.000 decessi
- California: 23.000 casi / 750 d.
- Florida: 21.000 casi / 520 d.
- Arizona (soo Hot...): 3.800 casi/ 131 d.
Ok. L’Arizona l’ho inserita per questioni di “affetto”, ma non è così popolosa. California, Florida e stato di New York si.
Ma vediamo un altro stato molto popoloso:
- Texas: 14.000 / 318

Ok. C’entra la conformazione del territorio e le distanze. Vediamo
Uno stato con una grande città come Detroit ma molto più freddo:
- Michigan: 25.000 / 1.600

Guardiamo la death rates by state (x 100k)?
- California: 1
- Florida: 2
- Texas: 1
- New York: 32
- Michigan: 10
- Arizona: 1

It's hard to capture the absence of activity. How do you show something that is missing? These wonderful @reuters pictures do just that.

With 415 #Delegates at stake, the #CaliforniaPrimary represented the biggest haul in the country.

@EpochTimes spoke to voters in #OrangeCounty, #SanFrancisco County, and Santa Clara County as they entered the voting centers. (Thread👇)…
Many voters said they would support the Democrats in the general election even if their candidates lose the nomination.

#Healthcare was a top issue for many, and several older voters said that #Biden’s experience as vice president made them choose him.
Sen. @BernieSanders won #California with just over a million votes statewide, and @JoeBiden trailed him with about 740,000 votes.

About 1.5 million turned out to vote for Trump, who won the Republican primary.

En 2015 se trataban apenas el 20% de los líquidos cloacales de todo el país generando inconvenientes en la salud y el ambiente. Nos comprometimos a duplicar el número e iniciamos un plan que incluye 50 nuevas plantas de tratamiento en toda Argentina. Algunos ejemplos 👉🏻
En 2016 pusimos en marcha la obra #SistemaRiachuelo que beneficiará a 4.3 millones de vecinos brindando cloacas por primera vez a un millón y medio. La obra más grande de saneamiento de los últimos 70 años en el país.
En #Neuquén ya terminamos obras que duplican la capacidad de tratamiento. Villa La Angostura ya tiene su primer planta de tratamiento y la ciudad de Neuquén la planta más grande de la Patagonia.

As far as I can tell #SanFrancisco has only issued one (1) building permit for a 10+ unit building based on an application received since Jan 1, 2017. (Barack Obama was president then, remember him?)
That permit was issued for 975 Bryant Street, which replaced an industrial building with what will someday become a 185-unit mixed-use building. (See Application #20170630808). Trammel Crow's website says it's in "pre-construction".
There's backstory: the parcel owner first sought planning permits in 2015 (twice) and then (presumably successfully in 2017). So this is more like a 4+ year process than a 2+ year process. But what happens after the building permit application?

#tRrump’s ‘Go Back’ comment is, of course, nothing new for most of us who are brown-skinned, @nytimes
What's new is that the #racist comment is from the #POTUS!
As one who has engaged with the public, I have had my share
The best example is this.
In 2016, after attending @theAAG annual meeting in #SanFrancisco, and after observing the #homelessness there, I wrote about the issue and related it to the local conditions here in #Eugene
An important public policy topic, yes?
Oh, but I was a brown-skinned #immigrant who was "complaining" ... how dare I try to make my country better by writing about the plight of the homeless!
The responses came.
Most didn't want to help solve the problem.But to call out my "otherness"

🇺🇸President Trump relaxed & jokes with media, asking if he should keep going. He's then asked about the decision to not strike IRAN and he explains he had many alternative strike targets.

@realDonaldTrump #QAnon
🇺🇸"I think John Kerry violated the LOGAN ACT"
President Trump then mockingly re-enacts conversations Kerry (might have?) had with IRAN & how KERRY'S interference has delayed progress in negotiations.

🇺🇸POTUS spoke to the Crown Prince of 🇸🇦Saudi Arabia about the murder of Jamal Khashoggi & was told there's been 13 arrests and more to come. He then talks about C_A intelligence & declass.👌🏽
