The racist priorities of the #surveillancestate on display:

"The MTA and Metro-North disclosures from last summer revealed that transit police tracked activists’ locations and shared images of some activists, like Jose La Salle, an organizer with the New York police watchdog group Copwatch Patrol Unit, and Alex Seel, a movement photographer.

If similar multimedia images are being held by the NYPD, they could be a violation of the NYPD’s protest monitoring rules, known as the Handschu guidelines, which are supposed to prevent the department from deploying undercovers or collecting images of protesters solely to keep tabs on their political activity."

Thanks a lot #Trudeau:

"$36 billion liquefied #naturalgas project proposed for the northern coast of British Columbia just got a conditional green light from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government. If built, the shipping terminal near Prince Rupert and its associated pipeline will be one of the largest and most carbon-intensive resource projects in #Canada's history." #climatefail #KeepitintheGround
If built, it'll be one of the most carbon-intensive resource projects in the country.

Solutions for homelessness are possible, even in high cost of living San Francisco. I'm proud that +Community Housing Partnership is a part of making a difference.
All that stands in the way of the construction of hundreds of tiny, modular apartments for hard-core homeless people in San Francisco — something that could sharply reduce the number of indigents on the city’s streets — is getting everyone involved to agree to some compromises. For the past year, developer Patrick Kennedy has been pitching City Hall on his plan to use metal shipping container-style boxes in quickie-construction projects that can...

Transit nerdery joy!
Once upon a foggy time, San Francisco was crawling with streetcars. Foxtrot back to the late 1930s, and their rhythmic click-clacking echoed down Balboa Street to Ocean Beach and across …

"Despite the play’s stalwart separation of church and founding statesmen, there remains something about Hamilton that strikes a religious nerve: namely, the way that its various canny subversions of the popular imagery of the Founding era ultimately reaffirm the American creation myth...As Hamilton continues to swell into a bona-fide reflection of the zeitgeist, one underlying factor seems most responsible for its rise: Miranda’s fable of the republic’s founding offers a way to take part in the cult of sacred history without the usual birthright credentials and ritual obeisances.

The favored avatars of this faith may change with the times, but its creed does not. The birth of the nation remains our One True God. The Revolution, the Constitution, and the Founding Fathers serve as something of a trinity establishing the culture’s unquittable cosmology and incontestable truth. Seen this way, Hamilton is less a new vision of the past than a translation of the sacred stories of American civil religion into the vernacular—in this case, the lingua franca of contemporary pop culture, a mashup of hiphop, R&B, rock, and show tune samples. And like any vernacular rendering of a text considered holy and immutable, it is at once radical on the surface and retrograde underneath—the best example in years of how a dominant worldview adapts to survive social change."
