The Pepsi phone is real, and here’s what it looks like
Yahoo News - over 1 year
What do guitar amp maker Marshall and construction equipment company Caterpillar have in common? They’ve both, for some reason or another, released branded smartphones. Now, you can add beverage conglomerate Pepsi to that not-so-exclusive list: On Thursday, the company officially unveiled the P1, a mid-range Pepsi-branded Android phone bound for China. Updated on 11-19-2015 by Kyle Wiggers: Added details from Pepsi’s announcement. Earlier this year, the P1’s spec sheet purportedly leaked on Chinese social network Weibo, and it seems the rumors weren’t far off. Like Marshall and Caterpillar before it, Pepsi seems to be betting on brand recognition rather than beefy hardware. The P1 features a 5.5-inch, 1,080p display, an octa-core, 1.7GHz MediaTek processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, and a 3,000mAh battery. It’s got a 13-megapixel, rear-facing shooter and 5-megapixel front camera, and leaked images seem to show capacitive buttons beneath the screen (back, home, and multitaski ...

Historic Hartford, Before And After: Preservation Awards
Blogs.Courant.com - almost 4 years
Picture a Queen Anne-Victorian house in Hartford's Cay Hill Historic District. Sadly, the house at 100 Liberty St. (left and below) had been covered with ugly asphalt shingles. The porches had been torn down, and the interior had been chopped up into three units. The Corporation for Independent Living restored the home's original wood siding, added new porches with traditional turned wood posts and spindle work, and refurbished the original wood floors and interior details. The Corporation for Independent Living's historic rehabilitation of 10 Liberty St. is one of 12 winners this year of the Hartford Preservation Alliance's preservation awards. The awards ceremony, to be held next Thursday at the Russian Lady, will roar like the 1920s' Prohibition era, with food, live music, an auction and more. So dig out your greatest Gatsby attire and plan to speak easy. The HPA's mission is to preserve and revitalize the city's architectural heritage, but historic preservation isn't ju ...

Few are riding Oakland-South S.F. ferry
San Francisco Chronicle - almost 4 years
Few are riding Oakland-South S.F. ferry [...] in an effort to boost ridership, the ferry operator - the Water Emergency Transportation Authority - wants to spend another $230,000 to add a third afternoon trip to the East Bay and two midday trips a week between South San Francisco and Pier 41 on the city's northern waterfront. Even with the ferry authority's optimistic projections of 100,000 riders a year, the line would still need to be publicly subsidized to the tune of $47 a ride. According to a new legislative analyst's report, the state will spend about $1 billion over the next few years as workers cash out on the stacks of unused vacation time they accumulated as a result of the forced days off without pay. Basically, workers used the unpaid days as vacation and banked their paid vacation days - which they'll be able to cash out when they leave state employment. According to the poll of 750 California voters, conducted over five days last month, 48 perce ...

Lane for bikes, emergency vehicles
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Lane for bikes, emergency vehicles San Francisco officials are crossing their fingers that their little-talked-about plan to reserve a northbound lane of the Embarcadero for bicycles this weekend doesn't create a giant traffic jam. The idea is to keep bicyclists away from pedestrian-crowded sidewalks as everyone descends on the waterfront for events including the America's Cup World Series, Fleet Week and Giants playoff games. The A's and the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum Authority, which runs their ballpark, are negotiating a five-year lease extension - with Major League Baseball offering to act as a negotiator to help get the deal done. According to insiders, one possible problem may be the $50 million penalty the Coliseum wants if the team leaves early for San Jose. The Sierra Club is crying foul on proponents of a San Francisco ballot measure calling for a study of draining Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, saying they are falsely suggesting the group backs the id ...

Mike Marshall: A San Francisco Values Debate
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Ninety-nine years ago, San Francisco unintentionally launched the modern environmental movement by lobbying Congress to permit it to flood a unique valley in Yosemite National Park. For the first time since our country's founding, a segment of the American public -- led by renowned naturalist John Muir -- cried out against the prevailing value system, which honored commercial development over environmental stewardship. This fall, San Francisco will revisit that debate, the outcome of which will have national consequences. Hetch Hetchy Valley was once a diverse ecosystem teeming with bears, mountain lions, wildflowers and thousand-year-old trees. Muir called it "a grand landscape garden, one of nature's rarest and most precious mountain temples." None of this mattered, however, to the leaders of San Francisco, who saw the valley as a convenient storage tank for water from the Tuolumne River. Rallied by John Muir, newspapers from coast to coast ran outraged letter ...

28 BART escalators out of service
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
28 BART escalators out of service [...] nearly half the escalators reported out of service last week were in downtown San Francisco - the three at Civic Center, plus four at Powell Street, three at Montgomery Street and a pair at Embarcadero Station. [...] there are young vandals who carve up the rubber railings, and the assorted screws, coins and other metal objects that find their way into the escalators' teeth, fouling up the works. Despite opposition from just about everyone in the city's political establishment, a new poll finds that a majority of San Francisco voters say they favor a proposed November ballot measure to study the idea of draining Hetch Hetchy Reservoir and restoring the valley in Yosemite National Park to its natural state. The results came as a bit of a shock to the Friends of Hetch Hetchy, the business and political coalition formed to oppose the measure. What the measure doesn't say outright, critics contend, is that it would be the fi ...

Following a sometimes-tumultuous aldermanic race in Brentwood's Ward 1, a close one in Ward 4, and two uncontested races, the four aldermen were sworn in.

Tenn. Law Firm and 3 Partners Ordered to Pay Consumers $670K in Claimed Health Insurance Scam
ABA Journal - almost 5 years
A Tennessee law firm has been held in contempt of court and ordered, along with three of its current or former partners and another individual, to repay $670,000 that two client companies are accused of taking from consumers in a health insurance scam that allegedly left policyholders with unpaid medical bills. A Davidson County judge determined that the three Evans Petree attorneys stepped in to operate a health insurance company themselves after the client entities were shut down in 2010 by the state Department of Commerce and Insurance, the Tennessean reports. Shareholder Mike Marshall said the law firm is conducting…
