2014 WTA YEC: Serena Clinches #1 When Sharapova Misses Semis  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
World #1 Serena Williams clinched the year-end top ranking today when World #1 Maria Sharapova failed to win her match against Agnieska Radwanska in straight sets (despite being a set and 5-1 up!) and therefore failed to exit the round-robin of the ETA Tour Finals in Singapore. Williams is the defending champion and although she, Ana Ivanovic and Simona Halep all won 2 matches and lost 1 in their group, only Halep and Williams advanced. In the other group, Caroline Wozniacki is the only undefeated player and despite losing to Sharapova, Radwanska qualified for the semifinals.The results mean that Serena will play Wozniacki in ...

DHS Public Safety Commission - 10/9/2014  »  Ron's Log
Commissioner Eastman was absent from this meeting of the Public Safety Commission. Public Comment Michael Picardi came to the podium and Chair Bowman reminded him of the three-minute time limit. Commissioner Lavy interrupted to say that was incorrect, that at the last meeting of the Commission the attorney had advised the three-minute limit was not a restringent on the commission. Here is 54954.3(b): "The legislative body of a local agency may adopt reasonable regulations to ensure that the intent of subdivision (a) is carried out, including, but not limited to, regulations limiting the total amount of time allocated for public testimony ...

Orange is for October  »  Guy Dads
San Francisco War Memorial Opera HouseNo, it is not pumpkin spice season in San Francisco. It is Giants fever. World Series mania. Everything is decked out in Orange and Black in the city by the bay. I, too, will be dressed in the Giants tacky sports colors of orange and black all weekend because I will be at the 3 World Series games played in SF this weekend.I will be the first to admit that I am one of those guys that totally lacks any kind of sports gene in my body. I really don’t care who wins the ...

Harry Shearer as Nixon  »  Ron's Log
Harry "Excellent!" Shearer will be Richard Nixon in Nixon's The One, a six-part series that will debut on Youtube Tuesday, October 28. Sparked by working on the Nixon series, one has to confront a fairly blunt fact: Forgetting his foreign policy, which was ludicrous, a lot of his domestic policies were mind-spinningly to the left of Obama. Under Nixon, the EPA was started, the OSHA was started, the Clean Air Act was passed, the Clean Water Act was passed. And, most startlingly of all, Nixon gave a speech late in his truncated second term calling ...

Real Estate Crazy  »  Guy Dads
Everyone knows that property prices in the San Francisco Bay Area are insane. Here is a recent story about a house in my neighborhood. It is 2 blocks away from our place. We drive by it nearly everyday.The place has been an eyesore for years. It is on the corner of a very busy residential street. Until recently it was covered in overgrown brush, vines and weeds. Unbelievably the seller got two cash offers.PALO ALTO (KPIX 5) — A home that may be infested with rodents is on the market in Palo Alto with a staggering asking price.Neighbors were ...

First Look: Avengers: Age of Ultron–teaser trailer!  »  popbytes
Hey, so remember that time Marvel put all your favorite superheroes in one movie and then it made a bajillion dollars (actual box office figure)? Well, it looks like they’re going for round two because it’s mothaf*cking Avengers: Age of Ultron time–they’ve got a teaser trailer and everything–the film is due out on May 15, 2015. The two-minute teaser features giant Iron Man suits, Scarlet Witch–and Quicksilver who was the best part of X-Men: Days of Future Past. Which is weird, because they immediately got rid of him as soon as the scene was ...

QUEER QUOTE: Obama Says Right To Same-Sex Marriage Exists In Federal Constitution  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Ptersident Barack Obama gave an interview with The New Yorker where he expresses his belief explicitly that the United States Constitution's Equal Protection clause guarantees marriage equality for same-sex couples.This excerpt from his conversation with Jeffrey Toobin is today's Queer Quote:“Ultimately, I think the Equal Protection Clause does guarantee same-sex marriage in all fifty states. But, as you know, courts have always been strategic. There have been times where the stars were aligned and the Court, like a thunderbolt, issues a ruling like Brown v. Board of Education, but that’s pretty rare. And, given the direction of society, ...

2014 WTA YEC: SHOCK! Serena Loses 8th Bagel Set Of Career To Halep In 6-0 6-2 Defeat  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Well, well, well! The question of how Serena Williams would do at this year's WTA Tour Championships were front and center when she was put in the same round-robin section as the three "It" girls of 2014 (Ana Ivanovic, Simona Halep and Genie Bouchard) was answered on Wednesday. The 18-time major champion won the fewest number of games in a professional match in 16 years, i.e. since she was just starting on the tour. Against Halep, every part of Serena's game was off and she quickly lost the first set 0-6, only the 8th bagel set of her ...

It's The Great L.A. Walk, Charlie Brown!  »  Ron's Log
Everything (almost) you need to know. Saturday, November 22, meet at Warner Center Park in Woodland Hills (5800 Topanga Canyon Boulevard) for the 9 AM departure. Walk at your own pace, relying on your own wits and resourcefulness to get to the Television Academy courtyard (5200 Lankershim Boulevard), a scant 17 miles away. I hope that the Television Academy is an incredibly beautiful structure, because when the walk ended in Santa Monica (the last three years), getting a sunset view of the Pacific was some good motivation. The intersection of Magnolia and Lankershim in North ...

Found One  »  Ron's Log
A federal judge who thinks bans on same-sex marriage areconstitutional, that is. Judge Juan M. Pérez-Giménez has dismissed a case in which the plaintiffs sought to overturn Puerto Rico's ban on same-sex marriage. Puerto Rico is in the 1st Circuit in which all the states (Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island) permit same-sex marriage. The reasoning he uses in his decision is so contrary to all of the appeals court decisions, I imagine he has guaranteed himself a lifetime job free of promotions. ...

Imagine that...four consective posts. Something must be wrong with me....Last night we dashed to downtown Los Angeles, making surprisingly good time -- during rush hour, even -- to the Music Center. A few weeks ago, Caesar received an email from the Center Theatre Group for a special event related tothe upcoming production of Matilda. Free tickets to a Q&A with Tim Minchin, the composer/lyricist for the show. So of course we had to be there...along with hordes of children.Luckily, it was an evening well spent. We enjoyed a few so gs from the musical, performed by one of the ...

Now There Are 32! Wyoming Becomes Marriage Equality State  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Just a few days after Arizona became the 31st state with marriage equality, another red state has joined the throng of marriage equality states today when Wyoming abandoned its fruitless legal battle in light of the U.S. Supreme Court's October 6 decision to not hear an appeal of two appellate circuits (the 4th and the 10th)  rulings that the federal constitution requires marriage equality.What this means is that in 32 states (see map), same-sex couples can get married while there are three more states (Kansas, Montana and South Carolina) where federal appellate court ...

Gwen Stefani is back with “Baby Don’t Lie”  »  popbytes
I’ve been patiently waiting for Gwen Stefani to grace us with new solo material ever since the release of The Sweet Escape, back in 2006 … which doesn’t seem all that long ago but it actually has been eight long years! Thankfully, No Doubt‘s (totally stellar) 2012 release, Push and Shove, helped tide me over for a bit. Yet once I heard Gwen was joining The Voice as judge, I knew it would be the perfect time to plot her much needed return to the music scene. Lo and behold, ...

Best Middle-Of-The-Road Video Of Burning Man 2014  »  Ron's Log
It doesn't sound like the greatest compliment, but it's intended that way. The best middle-of-the-road video should certainly be clear and watchable, but not professional quality; and it ought to show the 67,500 hoi polloi Burners who are not necessarily the richest or most beautiful; and it should have music that at least doesn't repel people; and it ought to look like the real burn as Burners see and experience it. Nothing too flashy, but fun. Keep an eye out for the nice man wearing a pink teddy bear as a sort of codpiece (okay, maybe it's a sort of ...
