    So, you and your spouse are living in a medium-sized middle American community and after coming into a little extra money you decided you want to do some planning for your retirement. You come across an investment opportunity in a cosmopolitan city in another state — a six-unit apartment building where you can purchase a co-ownership interest with a plan to move into that building when you retire. The purchase agreement includes a provision that the co-owners will convert the six-unit building into separately owned condominium units by a specified date, and you and your spouse will obtain the right...

    More than twice as many people died from accidental drug overdoses in San Francisco in 2020 than from the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, according to preliminary data released by the city’s office of the Chief Medical Examiner. A total of 713 people died from drug overdoses in the city in 2020 compared to 255 who died from the CCP virus, commonly known as the coronavirus. Nationwide, the largest increase in the number of overdose deaths occurred in March and May 2020 and coincided with the CCP virus lockdowns, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “The increases...

    In certain circles of San Francisco, a case of syphilis can be as common and casual as catching the flu, to the point where Billy Lemon can't even remember how many times he's had it. "Three or four? Five times in my life?" he struggles to recall. "It does not seem like a big deal." At the time, about a decade ago, Lemon went on frequent methamphetamine binges, kicking his libido into overdrive and silencing the voice in his head that said condoms would be a wise choice at a raging sex party. "It lowers your inhibitions, and also your...

    Last week on Fox News, Tucker Carlson argued that immigration to the United States would "dilute the political power" of Americans in a segment that also referenced "white replacement theory" - a discriminatory trope, often weaponized by white nationalists, suggesting that people of color are "replacing" White Americans.

    San Francisco residents are abandoning the city in droves, with a large number leaving to Texas and Florida, according to a report released Thursday by the commercial realty firm CBRE Group. The city lost the most residents out of every major city between 2019 and 2020, with 70 percent moving to nearby Sacramento, according to data that was gathered from the United States Postal Service records through a Freedom of Information Act request. Moves to Texas increased by 32.1 percent and to Florida by 46.2 percent. "Many of the most ambitious people on the planet have lived here," investor Keith...

    Posh dinners at a cost of €490 euros per head as rest of Paris struggles under lockdown. Even as Parisians continue to struggle under lockdown, members of the French elite, potentially including government ministers, have been caught attending rulebreaking secret restaurants in the French capital. French TV channel M6 aired secretly recorded footage of clandestine dinners taking place at an “underground restaurant located in a beautiful part” of Paris. The clip shows guests at the restaurant without masks openly kissing each other and violating social distancing rules. There also appears to be no restrictions on the number of guests allowed....

    Collins, who is Black, came under fire after critics unearthed tweets she wrote in 2016. Many Asian Americans, she wrote, “believe they benefit from the ‘model minority’ BS’” and “use white supremacist thinking to assimilate and ‘get ahead.‘” In her lawsuit, Collins alleges that instead of taking actions to protect “Black and Brown children from racist harassment and racist bullying, defendants opted to ‘burn’ the messenger, using a pretzel-twisted redirection of Ms. Collins’ seasoned social metaphors.”

    A dead gray whale was found Wednesday in the San Francisco Bay, near Crissy Field. Amir Ali Bigdeli was taking his usual morning walk, right by St. Francis Yacht Club in Crissy Field, when he spotted the whale’s body floating in the water. He snapped a picture of the whale, which he estimated to be over 40 feet long, a few hours after his walk. Bigdeli, who lives in the Marina district, told SFGATE that he spoke to swimmers in the San Francisco Bay, and found that the whale may have died recently. “According to the swimmers who were close...

    Before his election in 2019, Chesa Boudin worked as a translator for communist dictator Hugo Chávez CBS parent company Viacom's stock has plummeted more than 50 percent in the past week, perhaps due to the underwhelming quality of its journalism. Earlier this week, the company's paid streaming service, Paramount+, aired a special 60 Minutes segment on Chesa Boudin, the radical left-wing district attorney of crime-ravaged San Francisco. Wesley Lowery, the former Washington Post employee best known for spending several minutes in jail after getting arrested in a McDonald's, conducted the interviews for the piece.

  • Jack London had racist ideas. It's time to rename the square

    The Jack London I learned about in grade school was a seafaring adventurer. High school teachers taught me about his prolific pen and penchant for weaving together intoxicating descriptions of elemental sensations. It wasn’t until adulthood that I realized London was more complicated than his reputation. While he was noted for being a progressive socialist, London was also adept at dystopian race-baiting and published horribly xenophobic prose, including about Asian people. Some of his writing also revealed an affinity for white supremacy.
  • OpenAI's Sam Altman: Artificial Intelligence will generate enough wealth to pay each adult $13,500 a year

    Artificial intelligence will create so much wealth that every adult in the United States could be paid $13,500 per year from its windfall as soon as 10 years from now. So says Sam Altman, co-founder and president of San Francisco-headquartered, artificial intelligence-focused nonprofit OpenAI. "My work at OpenAI reminds me every day about the magnitude of the socioeconomic change that is coming sooner than most people believe," Altman, who posted Tuesday. "Software that can think and learn will do more and more of the work that people now do." Altman calls it an "AI revolution," and compares it in magnitude...

    SAN FRANCISCO — Prosecutors in Seattle and San Francisco have charged men with hate crimes in separate incidents that authorities say targeted people of Asian descent amid a wave of high-profile and sometimes deadly violence against Asian Americans since the pandemic began. Hundreds of protesters took to the streets of Los Angeles and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area on Saturday, the latest in a series of rallies in response what many said has become a troubling surge of anti-Asian sentiments. “We can no longer accept the normalization of being treated as perpetual foreigners in this country,” speaker Tammy Kim...

The pilot program in universal basic income is scheduled to last for six months, according to The San Francisco Chronicle. The artists will be selected from those “whose artistic practice is rooted in a historically marginalized community.”

    Vermont’s socialist democrat Senator Bernie Sanders was once the toast of the left. He said all the right things about any given subject, promoted socialism, and was consistently voted the most popular politician in America. Now, it would appear Sanders’s political career has lived long enough to see him become the villain. It looks as if the left is now turning on him. Big time. Sanders apparently made the unforgivable move of ruining Neera Tanden’s chances for the Biden administration’s Management and Budget office. Sanders questioned Tanden about her “vicious attacks” against both Republicans and hard-leftists, including himself.... Sanders being...

    Three weeks ago I processed the Capitol insurrection with my high school students. Rallying our inquiry skills, we analyzed the images of that historic day, images of white men storming through the Capitol, fearless and with no forces to stop them. “This,” I said, “is white supremacy, this is white privilege. It can be hard to pinpoint, but when we see, it, we know it.” Across our Zoom screen, they affirmed, with nods, thumbs-ups, and emojis of anger and frustration. Fast-forward two weeks as we analyzed images from the inauguration, asking again, “What do we see?” We saw diversity, creativity...

    For roughly six months, Steven MacDonald has felt more like he’s trying to unload fax machines or Friendster stock than prime San Francisco office space. The problem is every other San Francisco lawyer or therapist or insurance agent apparently has the same idea. “I’m not getting anything,” said MacDonald, 72. “And I just spoke to my administrator, and she just told me they dropped the ad. There were no nibbles.” About 18% of San Francisco office space is on the market right now, roughly 14 million square feet of emptiness. Major companies synonymous with the city, from Twitter and Salesforce...
