THE 3PMer for June 3, 2016
Well, that was a heckuva misfire. I had a coding error associated with the contest link. I just got an Internet connection after a lunch and long Uber ride to Davis...45 minutes, seriously? The Kaiser receptionist said that it's because of presidential rallies today. Bernie is speaking in Fairfield as I type this.
Happy hot Friday! We were teased by the weather forecast last weekend during the heat, with the forecast had the Sactown temp in low 90s this weekend. Instead, we're facing 105 degrees today, and 101 and 100 for respectively for Saturday and Sunday.
Monday at 5pm is the deadline for The Nooner election contest. Your link is:
Today is a quickie, as I have been working on the contest backend. So, as we approach Tuesday's primary, below are a few of the stories from the presidential trail.
Tomorrow, Bill Clinton is campaigning in Inglewood, Torrance and Compton in an effort to increase black voter turnout.
The Hard Road Of “The Unnatural” (Sherry Bebitch Jeffe and Doug Keffe: "The campaign trail may not be a comfortable place for Hillary Clinton, but in this topsy-turvy election year, her unexpectedly bumpy journey—and the upshot of her opponents’ own wild campaign ride–may very well see her stumble first into the White House."
Protesters attacked Donald Trump supporters on the sidelines of a San Jose rally Thursday night, in a raucous scene where a dozen or more people were punched and at least one woman was pelted with an egg.
Protesters also reportedly grabbed Trump hats from supporters and set the hats on fire on the ground.
Police eventually moved into the crowd to break it up and make arrests. At least four people were taken into custody, though police didn't release total arrest figures Thursday night. One officer was assaulted, police Sgt. Enrique Garcia said.

New short-term rental rules move forward at City Hall
New legislation that would expose short-term rental companies like Airbnb to big fines and misdemeanor charges when hosts fail to follow the cityâÂÂs registration requirements moved one step closer to becoming law on Thursday. About an industry that has made and continues to make tens of millions of dollars in this line of work taking responsibility for the negative impact that they are having on the housing stock. Board president London Breed, who normally sits on the committee but ceded her seat to Campos for this meeting because she had to leave early, also said she supported the legislation. Los Angeles and other cities are considering similar legislation that would require short-term rental companies to police their sites to ensure its hosts are complying with local regulations. âÂÂThe process just needs to be streamlined better so that it will allow people to register, not be intimidated by the registration process,âÂÂ testified Alice Chiu, an interior designer who has used the money she makes from renting out a spare room to start her own business. Under Campos and PeskinâÂÂs bill, short-term rental companies âÂÂ others include VRBO and HomeAway âÂÂ would have to verify that all listings have a valid San Francisco registration number before posting them online. When the city flags rentals that appear not to be registered, the listing services would be required to respond with details about those properties within one business day or face fines. Technology law groups have warned that the legislation appears to conflict with federal law that shields online platforms from liability for content generated by their users. âÂÂAnytime someone proposes to place liability on the platform because the platform users are doing something wrong, that raises concerns,âÂÂ said David Greene, civil liberties director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. âÂÂItâÂÂs important to remember that voters rejected this and other short-term rental restrictions just last year, which the mayor must also consider when weighing this legislation from supervisors,âÂÂ she said.

Planning Commission opposes Polk Street chain store ban
[...] the majority of planning commissioners said that, rather than an outright ban, the current zoning should be amended to let in some desirable formula retail establishments while raising the bar for those opposed by the majority of residents. Supervisor Aaron Peskin introduced the formula retail legislation in February as a way to block a proposed Whole Foods 365 grocery store, which has filed an application to occupy the former Lombardi Sports store at Polk and Jackson streets. Peskin says he wants to preserve the mom-and-pop character of Polk StreetâÂÂs business corridor and that he would rather see housing built there, which the property owner had originally intended to do. [...] with almost 50 residents and business owners weighing in on the ban, the debate at the Planning Commission frequently became a referendum on the grocery store. Emily Harrold, president of Russian Hill Neighbors, said that while she supports many local businesses along Polk Street, chain stores offer affordable goods that make living in expensive San Francisco possible. Baby formula is 23 percent higher at the corner store than it is at Walgreens,âÂÂ she said, adding that excluding mass market chains with cheaper products âÂÂensures that only those at the highest level of disposable income will remain in San Francisco. [...] others argued that allowing formula retail stores onto a commercial strip fuels commercial rent hikes, strips neighborhoods of its character, and undermines existing businesses. Mike Priolo, a representative of the 50-year-old Jug Shop at Polk and Pacific, said his business has survived the arrival of BevMo on Van Ness Avenue and the Whole Foods at Franklin and California streets, but that Whole Foods could put him out of business. Chris Schulman of Lower Polk Neighbors said that with a dozen large housing projects coming to the neighborhood, it is an important time to close the door on chain stores, which tend to be able to afford the higher rents and build-out costs that come with new development. Planning Commissioner Dennis Richards, former president of the Duboce Triangle Neighborhood Association, said the six-month conditional-use process, which requires Planning Commission approval, puts the burden on residents to constantly fight chains, which can afford lawyers and lobbyists.
