Facebook bans ‘violent network’ of far-right boogaloo accounts

Facebook took action to remove a network of accounts Tuesday related to the “boogaloo” movement, a firearm-obsessed anti-government ideology that focuses on preparing for and potentially inciting a U.S. civil war. “As part of today’s action, we are designating a violent US-based anti-government network under our Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy and disrupting it on our services,” Facebook wrote in the announcement. “As a result, this violent network is banned from having a prese...

When Bread Goes Kawaii: Rainbow Sourdough

Sheltering in place has transformed a nation into a legion of makeshift Betty Crockers. Baking supplies are sold-out on shelves across America. Sourdough starters are being exchanged in back alley hand-offs and in some cases even being distributed via telephone pole  (pro tip: never eat anything you found in a ziplock bag on a San Francisco city street). But what happens when you love bread, but you love psychedelics even more? Oakland-based baker Ashley Shotwell, who is known for her imaginativ...

Kitchen of the Week: Practical Magic in Phyllis Grant’s Berkeley Kitchen

We love quiet minimalist kitchens, but we’re equally enamored with heart-of-the-home kitchens, the kind of space that you can’t imagine without also hearing the cacophony of pots banging, pencils scribbling, and kids running in and out. Phyllis Grant’s Berkeley kitchen—with its open shelving stocked with cooking tools; hard-wearing, no-nonsense building materials; and large butcher-block island designed for food preparation and SAT preparation alike—falls into this everything-AND-the-kitchen-sin...

Links for shut-ins

Here in California, we’re closing in on four weeks of shelter-in-place. Cancellations and closures began even earlier. I’d had tickets to the International Ocean Film Festival, the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, the San Francisco International Film Festival, the San Francisco Ballet’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream,” and Loot at the Aurora Theatre—all canceled. (The silent film festival will take place in November instead of April.) I’d signed up for a class on the musical-theater genius Stephen...

Lakers’ Phil Handy extends his coaching passion with pandemic-proof app

He has always done his best work on the court. But for a decade, as he built his training business, Phil Handy’s office was a silver Volkswagen GTI that rattled across roads all over Northern California. He loaded up his car in the morning from his home in El Dorado Hills – 30 miles east of Sacramento – and drove to Marin County, directly north of San Francisco. Sometimes he wound through the Bay Area to Stanford or St. Mary’s College or UC Davis or Berkeley. Many days, maybe even most days, Han...

Instagram founder launches gift card site for quarantined restaurants

Users can search for restaurants or browse by neighborhood, and then click through to buy gift certificates straight from the eateries with no added fee from Sa...

What Tom Hanks having coronavirus means for the rest of us

Tom Hanks on Wednesday confirmed that he and his wife Rita Wilson have tested positive for coronavirus — the same day that the mysterious pathogen caused the Dow Industrial to plunge, prompted the NBA to suspend the rest of its season, forced President Donald Trump to ban most travel from Europe and heightened anxiety around the world. Hanks, a Bay Area native, two-time Academy Award winner and one of the most beloved figures in American film and public life, made his stunning announcement from ...

Derek Carr posts photo with Khalil Mack, adding to Bears trade rumors

The picture of Tom Brady talking to Raiders owner Mark Davis at a UFC fight was burned into Oakland Las Vegas Raiders fans' minds. There has been a lot of speculation about Carr getting traded this offseason. Carr had a less than memorable season during the Raiders' last year in Oakland, and a photo on his Instagram just adds to the swirling thoughts.

How 3 childhood friends with no ad industry experience became YouTube's longtime agency and made videos for Odell Beckham and Steph Curry

Childhood friends Nate Houghteling, Kai Hasson, and Zach Blume founded Portal A as a digital video production company in 2008. Despite having no formal advertising experience, they grew with YouTube at a time when marketers were hungry for low-budget projects. Their first successes were originals like "White Collar Brawlers," a series about boxing coworkers that was later acquired by Esquire Network. In 2011 they launched the popular annual "Rewind" series and became one of the first agencies ...

This Week in Photography: The early 70’s

  Part 1: The Intro It’s tempting to glorify the past. (Mighty tempting.) I wrote recently, in my eulogy to Robert Frank, that MAGA is really one more expression of the desire to return to the 1950’s. It’s easy to mock that desire, (and I did,) because it so easily connects to a whiter, more racist and sexist America. If we were to try to understand it on less nefarious terms, we might agree people associate the 50’s with American dominance, and a more naive, safer, more small-town version of ou...

Visiting California, Part 2: The Decline of San Francisco

  Part 1. Synchronicity   Meaning is what we make of it. That’s a fact. A week ago exactly, I stood on my front porch as our Antidote event broke up, and I watched a newly formed community, people who hadn’t even known each other a few days before, split with sorrow, as if parting with family. One student stayed a little longer, so I could set her up with a cool road trip around Southern Colorado. Now, I’m the first to admit that our program, set in the hippie Mecca of Taos, NM, is rather progre...

SoFar Sounds house concerts raises $25M, but bands get just $100

Tired of noisy music venues where you can hardly see the stage? SoFar Sounds puts on concerts in people’s living rooms where fans pay $15 to $30 to sit silently on the floor and truly listen. Nearly 1 million guests have attended SoFar’s more than 20,000 gigs. Having attended a half dozen of the shows, I can say they’re blissful…unless you’re a musician to pay a living. In some cases, SoFar pays just $100 per band for a 25 minute set, which can work out to just $8 per musician per hour or less. ...

Best things to do in Guadeloupe

“Most people, they think we’re in f**king Mexico,” my guide laughs over rum punches on my first night in Guadeloupe. “Like we’re gwa-da-LOOP-ay or something.” Such is the struggle of Guadeloupe (pronounced gwa-da-LOOP), the French Caribbean island that sits smack in the middle of the Lesser Antilles near St. Maarten and Dominica. AKA nowhere near Mexico. Though it’s one of the larger Caribbean territories, it somehow gets forgotten in North America’s collective consciousness. Which is a shame...

The Edge of Life

Some neat clouds in Prescott, Arizona. I am sitting in the Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix eating a Smash Burger while waiting for my plane to Oakland and from there, to Paris. I can’t believe I am eating yet another burger. I didn’t have the time or energy to eat anything but takeout food, mostly Quarter Pounders or Biscuit with egg and sausage. I have finally left my Mom in the assisted living place. She was anxious and depressed but I think she will be better once I leave and decides to m...

Striking photo essay about Oakland's Black Panther Party (1968)

Fifty years ago, San Francisco's DeYoung Museum exhibited Ruth-Marion Baruch and Pirkle Jones's striking photo essay depicting Oakland's Black Panther Party at the peak of their community activism and political activity. Starting this week, those powerful images will be displayed again as part of the Vanguard Revisited: Poetic Politics & Black Futures exhibition at the San Francisco Art Institute.

This Week in Photography Books: Jack Carnell

  Everybody makes mistakes. (Even me.) At the moment, I’m recalling the time I got snookered by a politician. Genuinely hoodwinked. Tricked out of my underpants. The year was 2004, and I was living in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. As hard as it may be for some people to believe in 2018, liberal Americans hated George W. Bush, and his neocon cronies, about as much as the Millennials hate Trump. He’d started two wars, including one based upon faulty evidence against a country that had NOTHING TO DO WITH 9...

  “I would argue that Manifest recapitulates the dehumanizing role of division in the conquest of the Frontier, by divorcing agency from lifeworld.” –Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa, November 2017, in the official essay for Manifest   You might need to read that quote a couple of times to understand it. I’m pretty bright, (so they tell me,) and I’m still not sure what it means. In effect, I’m tipping my hand about the book I’m reviewing today, but we’ll get to that later. (As always.) Rather, I’d like ...
