Tweet Follow me If you’re in the sports industry or in a sport management program, this video explains my experience in finding the right program to be a part of. After some good experiences and some terrible ones, I joined Women In Sports And Events (WISE). Regardless of gender, it’s an excellent grassroots style program and they treat their members as welcomed guests. IF you’re in a college, then you’re already in a networking group, but you still can’t go wrong with WISE. But there’s...

Tweet Follow me This is a political “slice of life” video I created during the evening of the March 4th “Super Tuesday” Primary. It starts with my trip to the Oakland “Obama For America” headquarters to do some phone banking work and then to two Obama parties in San Francisco, one at Tosca and the other at an art gallery. Along the way, you will meet Obama volunteers and discover their motivations and passions for being involved in this enormous grass roots movement to get Barack...

Tweet Follow me After four new offensive coordinators in each year of his short NFL career, former Utah and now San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Alex Smith has been place on injured reserve after injuring his shoulder in practice last Friday.  Once a player goes on IR, he can’t be taken off until the next season, so that closes the 2008 campaign for Smith. I was there in 2005 when Smith was drafted amid some controversy by the 49ers, who were trying to decide between Smith and California Quaterback Aaron...

Tweet Follow me This is the first video kicking off our coverage of the Democratic National Convention and events leading up to it. This one was a $2,300 a plate fundraiser for Barack Obama at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, CA, Sunday August 17th, 2008. As part of the event, an Obama Rally was held outside of the hotel. Two, perhaps three people with bullhorns were leading the crowd in “Obama” cheers, and one I recognized. Christine Pelosi, daughter of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the author of the...

Tweet Follow me Harry arrives at the Balboa Cafe From San Francisco Scene / SF Politics If you’d have told me that I’d end my evening into very early morning trying to convince the legendary Harry Denton not to lay down in the middle of the intersection of Filmore and Greenwich after what he admits was a drunken bender, I’d have said you were nuts. Well, you weren’t. What I saw was the embodiment of Old San Francisco in action. Harry Denton’s a throwback to the days of a bar called...

Tweet Follow me Maria Ayerdi Has Pelli Clarke Pelli Design For SF Transit Center Maria Ayerdi on Flickr I have to admit I liked the Skidmore Owings and Merrill design, even if their architectural renderings imply they forgot Black folks existed. But the Pelli design focused on a “green” theme and addressed several pressing flow issues that the others did not. Now, Transbay Terminal Joint Powers Authority Executive Director Maria Ayerdi has Pelli Clarke Pelli to work with. What will we get in San Francisco?...

Tweet Follow me Remember the San Francisco Transbay Terminal Design Competition video I created? Well, the executive director of the effort is none other than Maria Averdi. You can read more about her here. ...

Tweet Follow me Senator John McCain has a big-ticket fundraiser of 100,000 per person and held at the Fairmount Hotel to add to the public money he’s already using to run for President. I figured an anti-war protest must have been planned and I was right: there’s one according to KTYU.com: SAN FRANCISCO — Grassroots campaigners are planning to protest the continuation of the Iraq war Monday outside a fundraising event at a San Francisco hotel for Republican presidential nominee Arizona Sen. John...

Tweet Follow me CNN’s Black in America is a welcome addition to TV, but it has a major problem to me in that it does not represent middle class African Americans. Much of the telecast shows Blacks who are downtrodden, or have had something “done” to them by the “system.” It’s a one-sided view of Blacks that does not help in really understanding African Americans. Not every aspect of Black culture or the life of those of us who are is negative, and I feel that the general life...

Tweet Follow me http://zennie2005.blogspot.com – If you remember the video I made where I talked about how the Chinese Government could use IP address data from the Viacom / Google lawsuit to find dissidents and arrest or kill them — See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ua_XT1RJIE Then brace yourself because the Chinese have already arrested two Internet dissidents Du Daobin and Ye Guozhu and have done so before the Bejing Olympics. Both dissidents were arrested for “subversion” or...

Tweet Follow me Who is Larry Bowoto? Larry Bowoto is an indigene of Ilaje community in Ondo State, Nigeria. He claims that Chevron hired people to shoot him as he was protesting. This story is all over the Internet, but the other side of it is not. Chevron claims that Bowoto was one of several 100 who held Chevron employees hostage for several days. A trial starts in September 2008 in San Francisco federal court against Chevron by Larry Bowoto, but after almost a decade, Bowoto’s legal team very quietly dropped...

Tweet Follow me According to today’s NY Times, the newspaper industry is in trouble, as papers suffer from competition from the Internet. The SF Chron has been losing $1 million a week since last year. As Time O’Reily wrote last year, he reads the online version of the SF Chron 95 percent of the time, and the “offline” version about 5 percent of the time. That’s probably true for me, as well, but Tim and I are both in the Internet business. What can be done? Well, my answer is “nothing”...

Tweet Follow me What do supporters of Senator Barack Obama for President think of how far the campaign has come? Who do they want as his Vice Presidential Candidate? I asked people at a celebration event held at San Francisco’s Ruby Skye night club on Tuesday, June 10th 2008. The responses seemed to boil down to this: most of the people I talked to want or seem to think that Kansas Governor Katheryn Sebelius will be the choice. Two people, including San Francisco Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, thought that the...
