I just learned that civil forfeiture was a thing in the U.S. from a segment on +The Daily Show the other night. After doing a search I found articles mentioning lawsuits dating back to 2008. It seems incredibly strange to me that this is still a very understated issue.

"Civil forfeiture allows law enforcement to seize property (including cash and cars) without having to prove the owners are guilty." A quote from the attached article in Forbes.

Also an article from the New Yorker in 2013,

PBS in 2013,

NPR in 2008,
VideoLicense, registration—and your cash. A deputy for the Humboldt County’s Sheriff Office in rural Nevada has been accused of confiscating over $60,000 from drivers who were never charged with a crime.  These cash seizures are now the subject of two federal lawsuits and are the latest to spotlight a little-known police [...]

I have really been enjoying the +Destiny the Game beta so far. +Bungie did an amazing job on the companion app and as a designer I have really been enjoying the risks they took with the in-game style, UI, and menus. So far I'm very impressed with this game, can't wait for the real game in September.

Wow, this is a great example of why details matter in visual designs. The majority of the change is in lighting, which makes a huge difference. I especially love how the nights are actually beginning to look like real night time lighting. Definitely picking this one up again.
Grand Theft Auto 5 PS4 vs. PS3 comparison video reveals impressive improvements -

The upcoming new-generation port of Grand Theft Auto 5 looks much better than its PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 predecessor, as you might expect, and Digital Foundry analyzed the new trailer to assess the differences.

Sony announced a PlayStation 4 version of Grand Theft Auto 5 during its E3 2014 press briefing last week, and publisher Rockstar Games later released a trailer to confirm that the port is also on its way to Windows PC and Xbox One. According to Rockstar, the video consisted entirely of footage that was captured on a PS4, so Digital Foundry compared it to clips of the PS3 version that were provided by the YouTube channel GTA Series Videos.

Today is the California primary, if you live in California don't forget to vote.

+Karl Channell not past reading their websites last night and a handful of articles from the Chronicle and LA Times. There was decent coverage on most of the candidates so a quick search of each office should yield some good results if you're looking for a crash course. There are 4 propositions on the ballot too, two of them are specifically related to SF. 

Also, this is the primary so there will be a run-off election in November between the top two candidates in any category.
