" Berkeley Arrest Suspect in Southside
Stabbing, Investigate Armed Robbery" reports Riya Bhattacharjee in our Planet.
"Berkeley police arrested
32-year-old Hercules resident Dimitar Popov in connection with
a stabbing incident south of the UC Berkeley campus last week.
Berkeley Police Department
Spokesperson Officer Andrew Frankel said the victim was walking
home with three friends at 2:38 a.m. Dec. 20 when one of his friends
got into an argument with Popov on the southwest corner of Telegraph
and Durant avenues."
So yesterday I went up on
"The Ave", hadn't been there in years so though I'd
check it out. As a turned the corner of Dwight and Telegraph,
and not paying attention, I almost ran into a young woman. As
I was apologizing she hit me. Lots of graffiti, too.
Earlier I had breakfast at
our West Side. I hadn't eaten there recently. I had the Huevos
Rancheros, delicious! Many new menu items for a guest who hasn't
been there in years and still some of my old favorites--Cornmeal
apple pancakes, French toast, homemade sausage patties. I'll go
back again for breakfast and then for lunch--think 'll try the

jack and spicy creole mayo on a homemade onion roll, 7.25 USD.

they benefited (between 1906-1941) from growth, political issues
remained between West and East Berkeley. West Berkeley made a
serious, though unsuccessful attempt to secede from Berkeley in

the 'reform' City Charter of 1909 of a complete prohibition on
bars and alcohol sales in Berkeley, more than a decade before

"How to Train the Aging Brain" is a story at , . . . uuh . . . mmm.
" Love reading history,
and the shelves in my living room are lined with fat, fact-filled
books. There's 'The Hemingses of Monticello,"'about the family
of Thomas Jefferson's slave mistress; there's 'House of Cards,'
about the fall of Bear Stearns; there's 'Titan,' about John D.
The problem is, as much as
I've enjoyed these books, I don't really remember reading any
of them. Certainly I know the main points. But didn't I, after
underlining all those interesting parts, retain anything else?
It's maddening and, sorry to say, not all that unusual for a brain
at middle age: I don't just forget whole books, but movies I just
saw, breakfasts I just ate, and the names, oh, the names are awful.
Who are you?
Brains in middle age, which,
with increased life spans, now stretches from the 40s to late

for San Francisco's dog shelter.
A third of all dogs in San
Francisco's pound are Chihuahuas. It is the same story in Los
Angeles, Oakland, Berkeley and San Jose where the small trendy
dog with pointed ears and oversized eyes is taking up space to
a degree never seen before. The problem has become so big it now
has its own name: 'Paris Hilton Syndrome' ".
"Berkeley gets public funds to extend bike
paths" by Doug Oakley,
"Berkeley has secured
about $4.5 million in state and federal funds to extend three
bike paths that should make getting around town faster and safer.
The most expensive project,
at $2.4 million, is an extension of a bike path that goes over
Interstate 80 from Aquatic Park to the West Frontage Road near
Sea Breeze Market and University Avenue.
The extension will be a half-mile,
12-foot wide path from West Frontage Road and University Avenue
into the Berkeley Marina, where it will end at the parking lot
near the Cal Sailing Club."
"Berkeley's public housing residents oppose
privatization of their housing"
opines Lynda Carson at indybay.org.
" The plan to sell off
Berkeley's 75 public housing units is harmful to Berkeley's poor,
elderly, and disabled population that fail to qualify for the
Section 8 program, or meet the minimum income requirements to
reside in so-called affordable housing units owned and operated
by local non profit housing developers.
Recently the public housing
residents of Berkeley received a shocking notice dated October
27, 2009 announcing that the Berkeley Housing Authority (BHA)
is preparing to convert their public housing units into privately
owned housing subsidized by Section 8 voucher rental assistance,
and that their housing would be transferred to a local non profit
The BHA's scheme to file
a Disposition Plan with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD) during December 2009, to dispose of 75 units
of federal and state scattered public housing units threatens
to displace Berkeley's poor from their housing by the spring of
2010. The BHA expects approval of the Disposition Plan by HUD
in the spring, and has already been searching for a so-called
non profit developer to transfer Berkeley's 75 public housing
The City of Berkeley no longer
wants to be responsible for a total of 61 public housing units
or it's additional 14 scattered site RHCP public housing units,
and wants the new owners to be responsible for financing, renovating
and operating the apartments for the next 50 years as so-called
affordable housing units."

Over the weekend I read an
interesting article in the SF Chron. It says that Oakland is going
to follow the lead of L.A., San Jose, & San Francisco (among
others) & use state laws to file injunctions against gang
members and reduce crime.
I still recall asking Darryl
Moore & his assistant Ryan Lau why Berkeley wasn't doing this.
In a conversation with Ryan Lau at the Francis Albrier Community
Center in September 2008 (after the double homicide in South Berkeley
that was also followed by shootings at the street memorials),
Ryan on behalf of Darryl Moore's office told me - "We can't
do what San Francisco is doing, this is Berkeley."
After Oakland's announcement
this week, it's clear that Berkeley is behind the curve in attacking
our gang problem, while cities around us are taking proactive
& quantitatively measurable steps to suppress gang violence.
Just because things have
been a little quieter since the murder at 10th & Allston in
May 2009 doesn't mean they'll stay that way. Violence & gang
activity ebbs and flows. They caught the murderers, but the gang
war between North Oakland and Berkeley continues...

however, is the context in which it puts the story.
Ultimately, the problems
in the UC system are more about the problems with California's
governance as a whole. The state is feeling a significant crunch
across the board, and save a radical change of the state constitution,
the state assembly needs a two-thirds majority just to raise taxes."

in California" by
Chris Morrison at industry.bnet.com.
"Areva, a French nuclear
engineering firm, is going ahead with a partnership with the Fresno
Nuclear Energy Group to build new reactors in California's Central
Valley. At first glance that doesn't sound so odd, but California
presents a somewhat intimidating prospect for nuclear power advocates.
Famed for its earthy liberals,
many of whom show outright hostility toward nuclear power, California
cities like Berkeley even refuse to buy services from firms associated
with nuclear. It gets worse: the state actually has a law on the
books forbidding nuclear unless it comes with an attached plan
for waste disposal - an unlikely prospect in the current U.S.
Still, Areva, which signed
a letter of intent with FNEG that it just affirmed with a press
release today, thinks it can overcome the difficulties."

it. A few years ago I referred in print to the current explosion

revolution, comparing it to the Industrial revolution of the 19th
century. I continued by pointing out that just as people living
in the midst of that industrial explosion of mass manufacturing
could hardly have foreseen the long-term effects of that major
cataclysm (the regimentation of the assembly line with all its
droning boredom, industrial pollution, unions, the nouveau riche,
etc.), so was it unlikely that we could see the implications for
the future in a world where Tokyo or Timbuktu are, in a technical
sense, right next door. The book trade today, along with lots
of other long established systems, is now in a very precarious
situation. Everything is changing and while we don't know where
it's all going, we do know it's out of our control."
