Happy Sunday! Sorry about yesterday's misfire. For some reason, the hamsters didn't save it. 

Happy Golden 1 Center week! Here's an awesome article about the technology behind the new home of the Sacramento Kings.

SHAKE, RATTLE AND ROLL: Risk of big earthquake on San Andreas fault rises after quake swarm at Salton Sea [Rong-Gong Lin II @ LAT] - "The rumbling started Monday morning deep under the Salton Sea. A rapid succession of small earthquakes — three measuring above magnitude 4.0 — began rupturing near Bombay Beach, continuing for more than 24 hours. Before the swarm started to fade, more than 200 earthquakes had been recorded."

HALT! Police stop Schwarzenegger riding bike in Munich station [AP] - "A police officer in Germany got himself an unusual souvenir after finding none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger breaking the rules at Munich's main train station. Federal police say the officer stopped Schwarzenegger's bodyguard and then the movie star and former California governor himself riding bikes Friday along the station's platforms."

MONEY MATTERS: Campaign watchdog investigates porn industry over alleged foreign donations [Taryn Luna @ SacBee] - "The Fair Political Practices Commission is investigating the porn industry in response to a complaint alleging that it accepted foreign money to oppose a November ballot measure requiring actors to wear condoms in adult films."

SIGNING FEST: There's a reason why Jerry Brown signs so many bills [John Myers @ LAT] - "Of the 1,059 bills sent to him this year, Brown vetoed 159, or 15%. And that was the peak of his pickiness since returning to Sacramento in 2011. Brown’s six-year average veto rate for bills approved by the Legislature is just 13%."

VETOES: Gov. Jerry Brown’s vetoes pile up in final week [Jessica Calefati @ MercNews] - "[E]xperts say legislators looking for real guidance on Brown’s thinking should mine the tall stack of bills he added this week to the reject pile. In recent days, the governor used his veto pen to send a message to the Legislature about his priorities, dismissing dozens of measures he deemed too costly, too redundant or that simply go too far."

#ENDRAPE: Spurred by Brock Turner case, Gov. Jerry Brown signs laws to toughen laws against rape [Jazmine Ulloa @ LAT] - "Months after outrage over the six-month sentence for sexual assault given to former Stanford swimmer Brock Turner, Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday broadened the power of judges to treat sex crimes as rape at sentencing and agreed that the crime’s punishment must include time in state prison."

Why opponents of increasing the tobacco tax aren't talking about tobacco [Liam Dillon @ LAT] - "In November, Californians will vote on raising the cigarette tax for the third time in a decade. And like previous campaigns, the tobacco industry isn’t spending much time trying to convince voters that, in general, increasing tobacco taxes is a bad thing to do."

The May Building

 

DENIM DESIGNATION: It’s official: Blue jeans are a California state symbol [Jeremy B. White @ SacBee] - "Denim has officially entered the pantheon of official state symbols, with Gov. Jerry Brown signing legislation declaring the material the California state fabric."

NOPE: Brown vetoes bill to broaden ranked-choice voting in California [Bob Egelko @ SFChron] - "Legislation that would have allowed all cities in California to use ranked-choice voting, the system in San Francisco and three other Bay Area communities that lets voters rank candidates by preference and decide an election in a single round of ballots, has been vetoed by Gov. Jerry Brown."

TOP INDUSTRY: Medical care now California’s biggest industry, dwarfing all others [Dan Walters @ SacBee] - "A new UCLA Center for Health Policy Research study reveals that we Californians are directly or indirectly spending a mind-numbing $367.5 billion a year on our physical well-being, equal to 15 percent of the state’s $2.5 trillion economy. That makes it, by a huge margin, our largest industry, dwarfing such high-profile California mainstays as movies, agriculture, aerospace and tourism."

#CAKEDAY: Happy birthday to Jim Araby, Gina Frisby, Ryan McElhinney, Brad Pomerance, and Andrea York!
