Report: At Least 2 Dead In San Francisco Plane Crash

Report: At Least 2 Dead In San Francisco Plane Crash

Two people have died, and 61 were injured in a plane crash at San Francisco airport today. The San Francisco Fire Department told CBS of the fatalities, and says the number of injured is expected to rise. Early reports say the tail of an Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 borke off as Flight 214 made a hard landing. “The plane started coming in at an odd angle, there was a huge bang and you could see the cloud of huge black smoke,” says a witness. Video of the plane on YouTube shows the plane upright, with black smoke billowing out, and evacuation slides down. Read more on Newser… [Photo via @EuniceBirdRah]

This Is The Most WTF Video I Have Ever Seen (NSFW)

crazy man at BART station
Watch Video

A few weeks ago, there was apparently an incident at the 16th Street Bart Station in San Francisco. A naked, obviously disturbed man walked into the station and began aggressively confronting people. The incident was originally reported on May 10, but just today a video of the man’s behavior was released. We aren’t trying to make fun of what this man and his fellow Bart passengers experienced, but we felt like the video — very NSFW — was too incredible/disturbing/confounding not to post.

Here’s a first hand account of the incident from a woman that was there:

“Just left 16 and Mission Bart station and as I was approaching the ticket exit, a completely naked man with his penis hard was backing a woman coming from work I assume against a wall and he threw her down to the ground. Someone tried to stop him and he ended up throwing the guy to the ground and then got on the ticket exit/entrance thing and squatted over for everyone to see his anus and then and then and then….. the point is that no one could control the situation and then he started going after an older man and had him by the neck. He was obviously on PCP since he was so strong and out of it ( i think???)) wtf! Everyone ran out and no one could help. I heard “the police were on their way” but we all ended up getting out of there. I didn’t stick around. Thank god my kids weren’t with me. Sad world and fucked up people. Fuck 16th/Mission Bart. At your own risk!”

After the incident and a brief chase through the tunnels, the man was arrested. Keep reading »

It’s undeniable that Jean Paul Gaultier’s design career — always innovative, always stunningly avant-garde — is well beyond deserving of an exhibit (really, his works could and should launch a museum). After over forty years in the business of haute couture, the designer is at long last the subject of a solo exposition at De Young Museum in San Francisco. Keep reading »

San Francisco Smacks “Crisis Pregnancy Centers” For Misleading Women About Abortion

First Resort, a so-called “crisis pregnancy center” in San Francisco, has until the end of the month to change its advertisements misleading women about abortion-related services — or else. “Crisis pregnancy centers” often look like women’s health clinics and advertise about pregnancy counseling and services; they claim to help women pay for prenatal care and give them free diapers and other baby supplies. However, CPCs are frequently run by religious organizations and don’t have actual medical professionals on staff; instead, they “counsel” women to not have abortions. Thus, the SF city attorney sent First Resort a cease-and-desist letter warning them about its ads that “appear to be designed to confuse or mislead consumers.” The SF Supervisor Malia Cohen also introduced an ordinance on Tuesday that would punish CPCs for using misleading statements in their ads that make it seem like they provide abortion or counseling for abortions.

Grab Those Snippers! San Francisco Judge Nixes Circumcision Ban On Ballot

Snip away, San Francisco! A judge ruled yesterday that the city cannot vote on whether to ban circumcision on the ballot next election. The ban, which was spearheaded by activist Lloyd Schofield, would have made “genital mutilation” of minors punishable by a $1,000 fine or a year in prison. The Jewish community was meshuggenah about the ban, as circumcising infants is part of their religious practice. But religious or moral reasons are not why Superior Court Judge Loretta Giorgi nixed the ballot initiative: she agreed there are compelling medical reasons for circumcision and laws regulating doctors and healing professions must be made on the state level. Schofield is expected to appeal. Keep reading »
