Laker Fans Flock Stores Buying Kobe Bryant Merchandise

This video is a small representation of what’s going around not only here in the Southland , but I’m sure across the country and the disbelief of Kobe’s passing and the need to somehow hold on to his memory via IFTTT

Darrell Carter Of Montclair Greater Oakland Democratic Club, UC Berkeley, Passes

Darrell Carter Of Montclair Greater Oakland Democratic Club, UC Berkeley, Passes

I received an email from Chris Peeples, long time PANIL and AC Transit Board Member, sharing the sad news of Dr. Darrell Carter, former member of Montclair Greater Oakland Democratic Club, and famed UC Berkeley Optometry Professor.

Dear Friends:

It is with regret that I notify you of the recent death of my friend Darrell Carter, OD, PhD, FAAO. Darrell was a long time active member of MGO and a delegate to several Democratic National conventions. He funded the United Democratic Campaign Alameda North several times in the 70s and 80s. He ran for the EBMUD board as an development skeptic in the first election where there were broad dissemination of the Berman D’Agostino “slate cards.” The other candidate for the open seat was Mary Warren, a member of the national Democratic committee. Mary Warren won.

Professionally, Darrell was an optometrist, a professor of optometry at UC Berkeley and Dean of the school of continuing education in optometry at UC Berkeley. The School of Optometry’s biography of him can be found at: https://ift.tt/2sW2OXo.

When Darrell retired he and Mary Kate moved up to Glen Ellen in Sanoma County where he was living when he passed..

Las Vegas Stadium / Allegiant Stadium Seat Installations Start But Too Soon With The Roof Problem?

Las Vegas Stadium / Allegiant Stadium Seat Installations Start But Too Soon With The Roof Problem?

Las Vegas Stadium’s getting seats, already.  Las Vegas Stadium / Allegiant Stadium hit a milestone that is reflective of the desire to fast-track the construction of this new nfl home for the Las Vegas Raiders of Oakland: installing some of the 65,000 seats in the facility.  This entails some risk, given the problems with the incomplete cable-net roof structure and the compression ring system that the roof trusses are attached to.  The seats that are in place, are positioned at the top-most part of the stadium, closest to the very part of Las Vegas Stadium that’s caused the biggest problem: the roof area.  But the reason the builders elected to start putting in seats at the rim of the facility is because they will be shielded by the overhanging truss system. 

That said, it seems questionable to start putting in seats given the roof problems that, in themselves, were caused by fast-tracking construction.    As of the date of this writing, not even SoFi Stadium has seats installed in it’s upper deck area, given the work that still needs to be done up there.  

And compared with Las Vegas Stadium / Allegiant Stadium, it’s clear So Fi Stadium is truly set to open this year: ‪Taylor Swift‬ will be the first female singer to open in an NFL Stadium with her ‪July 25th‬ concert date in Inglewood.  And then ‪Kenny Chesney‬’s tour starts at So Fi Stadium ‪August 1st.‬  What does Las Vegas Stadium / Allegiant Stadium have that’s officially set for any date, without possibility of shifting venues?  Nothing.  And there’s a reason for that: Las Vegas Stadium / Allegiant Stadium is not yet ready.

Only Black Man In A Cafe In Oakland – Sign Of A Diversity Problem In 2016 Before BBQ Becky

Only Black Man In A Cafe In Oakland – Sign Of A Diversity Problem In 2016 Before BBQ Becky

Oakland – In this vlog at Perch Cafe on Grand, I noted the first time being the only black guy in a cafe In Oakland in my life – ever. This at Adams Point in Lake Merritt on Grand Avenue in 2016. And this was before the nation was introduced to such Oakland racists as BBQ Becky.

At the point of the vlog, I had never been to a single cafe in Oakland that didn’t have blacks in it, and I mean plural. Now, the good news is the owner of the cafe is black, and also owns a barber shop next door, but I’m sure he would be both surprised and not surprised by this vlog. It notes the passing of a time when there were enough African Americans in the Lake Merritt Area such that a scene like this would be unthinkable even in 2006 – ten years before this.

It is also a sign of the impact high rents and little good jobs for non-tech Oaklanders, many who are black, will have on a neighborhood like Adams Point.

Hopefully, this vlog makes you look around Oakland using a different lens.

21st Leigh Steinberg Super Bowl Party In Miami – Video Blog

21st Leigh Steinberg Super Bowl Party In Miami – Video Blog

Since Super Bowl LIV in Miami is fast approaching and this vlogger, me, Zennie Abraham, is set to attend The Leigh Steinberg Super Bowl Party there, I thought it was a good time to look back at the last Miami Super Bowl Party Leigh threw in South Florida – or at least the last one I attended.

In 2007, I had the honor and pleasure of attending Leigh Steinberg’s 21st Super Bowl Party in Miami (for Super Bowl 41, pitting the Indianapolis Colts vs. The Chicago Bears) and held at the Westin St. Francis Grand Floridian Yacht which is docked just off Ocean Avenue.

This, my fourth of Leigh’s Super Bowl parties I’ve attended, was the best. And this was due to the intimacy provided by the combination of the yacht and the grounds below. As a result, there was a lot of interaction rather than people sticking in their own groups and clicks. The video — as a result — reflects how people did relate to each other there.

It was a lot of fun. Stars? Well, I’m not the best at recognizing people, but I did talk a while with with Julian Jenkins of the Tampa Bay Bucaneers, Jack Del Rio, Heach Coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars (not in video) and ESPN’s Woody Paige (in the video) and Tony Rially (not in the video as well as Billy Baldwin (Not in the video).

Finally, much of the video focuses on Al Samuels and Steve Fleming of NBC’s “Sports Action Team” and their segment filmed with Leigh Steinberg, and Bruce Perlmutter, the GM of the Tribeca / ESPN Sports Film Festival.

Oakland Post’s Paul Cobb On Martin Luther King, Jr., Chauncey Bailey, Mayor Ron Dellums, Oakland

Oakland Post’s Paul Cobb On Martin Luther King, Jr., Chauncey Bailey, Mayor Ron Dellums, Oakland

Oakland – Paul Cobb is a long-time Oakland, California writer, activist, community organizer and now publisher of the Oakland Post. I met Paul at his office in Downtown Oakland in 2008, and to talk about a wide range of subjects, including who killed Chauncey Bailey, what Paul thought about the then current Mayor of Oakland, Ron Dellums, and about his friend, the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Chauncey Bailey was an Oakland journalist who was supposedly murdered by people associated with Your Black Muslim Bakery. But Paul Cobb and others believe that the chain of events that led to someone murdering a journalist in the line of duty is more complicated and may lead to people and institutions one would not expect. In our talk, Paul shared some interesting information. Without coming out and saying it directly, Cobb believes that an Oakland Police officer had some role in Bailey’s eventual death. He says this twice in the video. Cobb also said that California Attorney General Jerry Brown took Chauncey Bailey’s research files from him and never returned them.

Cobb talks about President Barack Obama and what his friend the late Dr. Martin Luther King, would think about Barack’s historic success in becoming as of this writing the first African American presidential nominee of either party. What Cobb says is not just that he would be proud, but it is the culmination of his dream.

Those are some of the highlights of a man who’s life goes back to his personal relationship with Martin Luther King. It’s a fitting talk to present for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2020.

Oakland Cat Town’s Ann Dunn To Be Oakland Animal Services Executive Director

Oakland Cat Town’s Ann Dunn To Be Oakland Animal Services Executive Director

Oakland – On Tuesday, Janaury 21 Cat Town will announce today that its founder and Executive Director, Ann Dunn, will leave to assume the helm of Oakland Animal Services (OAS) as its new Director, effective January 21, 2020 In her place, Cat Town has selected Andrew Dorman as its new Executive Director.

The announcement underscores the close and unique working relationship between Cat Town, the first of its kind animal rescue organization that finds homes for Oakland’s most vulnerable shelter cats, and OAS, the municipal shelter. This uncommon partnership has been instrumental to Cat Town’s success since Dunn, a former OAS volunteer, founded Cat Town in 2011. Together, the two organizations have worked to reduce the cat euthanasia rate at OAS from 42% in 2011 to less than 10% today.

Congratulations to Ann Dunn!
