Raising tuition is not the solution. There is a better way: provide California students and their families high quality, affordable higher education, as defined by the California Master Plan for Higher Education. The reality is that Governor Brown has not been wi...

Learning to co-exist with Coyotes. - by D. Boyer
Coyotes are in our midst, they are in urban parks, they are in our neighborhoods, and sightings and encounters are more prevalent than ever. Coyotes are often misunderstood, and they are often shot mercilessly in the name of protecting livestock and pets. Coyotes inhabit many areas in San Francisco including Bernal Heights, Twin Peaks, Golden Gate Park, the Presidio, and the Lincoln Park area. When people spot them there are often two reactions, scared or interested.

According to Napolitano, the tuition hikes (as much as $3,400 over five years) would go forward unless the state government increases UC's budget by amounts to be named later.

University of California Student Association Rejects New UC Tuition Plan - by via UCSA
Oakland CA - Today, UC President Napolitano announced that she would recommend to the UC Regents a “five-year stability plan,” which would establish annual tuition and student fee increases of up to 5% for both undergraduate and graduate students. The UC Office of the President (UCOP) claims that tuition increase levels within this 5% would be contingent on funding from the state, and that these proposed increases could be reduced with more additional state investment.

Yes, We Are the Champions, But Your Giants Are Not Our Giants… - by Roberto Lovato, Of América
For several unforgettably exquisite hours last night, celebrating the San Francisco Giants victory on 24th Street felt musical, like a mix between a peasant land takeover, the L.A. riots and an Afro-Latin festive devil celebration in which traditional notions of “good” and “evil,”master” and “slave” are temporarily twisted, turned over and completely toppled in the Dionysian delirium of it all.
