When the ancient Polynesians invented surfing, they often used a paddle to help them navigate. Fast-forward a few millennia, and Stand-Up Paddleboarding, or SUP, finds itself trendy again. Part of its increasing popularity is that standing upright allows surfers to spot waves more easily and thus catch more of them, multiplying the fun factor. Paddling back to the wave becomes less of a strain as well. The ability to cruise along on flat inland water, surveying the sights, is another advantage. Finally, its a good core workout. If youre sold on the idea, schedule an intro SUP lesson, free with board and paddle rental, and you may find yourself riding the waves like a Polynesian king.More
In the past 30 years, light artists have reimagined an art form that has always had the ability to turn the night sky, or a simple window, into luminescence. Last fall, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts turned its southern glass wall into a parade of sound-sensing lights, Lightswarm, that changes with the movements of nearby people and things. Future Cities Lab, the San Francisco design company behind Lightswarm, has originated another notable light sculpture. Located by the YBCA's steps at 701 Mission, Murmur Wall will light up in arresting ways as it incorporates local trending search engine results and social media postings. Onlookers can offer their own contributions, which will feed into the Murmur Wall's data stream and light up the sculpture. What's trending in San Francisco? If you're walking by the YBCA, you can see firsthand — at least through light patterns that reflect the city's volatile internet habits.
Murmur Wall debuts Thursday at 6 p.m. and continues through May 31, 2017, at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission St., S.F. Free; 415-978-2700 or ybca.org. More
you may have read or heard about the case of Jose Padilla, a young
American who rose through the management ranks at Taco Bell and
was later captured for conspiring with al Qaeda.After our diligent
Government agents arrested Mr.Padilla for being an enemy combatant
and detained him indefinitely, some people foolishly and dangerously
attempted to argue that people like Mr.Padilla deserve things like
“rights ” and “due process.” These people
ask irrelevant and distressing questions like, “When will
he get a fair trial?” To which we, the co-authors of this
pamphlet, say: We ’ll get around to it soon enough! These
same critics argue that our Government ’s approach to finding
terrorists seems random. Some people get trials, some don ’t;
some arrests are based on strong evidence, others not. Does this
mean the Government doesn ’t know what it ’s doing?
As members of our youth culture like to say: Whatever! We ’ll
root out terrorism wherever we find it. After all, are you sure
you ’re not a terrorist? We ’re not! Why is all this
important to San Francisco? Things are not as pleasant as they seem
here in the city by the bay! Behind the sourdough curtain lurks
a haven of evildoers —al Qaeda terrorists maybe, or at the
very least people who are up to no good, or look like they might
be.People taking advantage of our warm weather and diversity to
cloak their evildoings. We need your help to stomp out these people
and get them locked up as enemy combatants. And to the critics:
Grow up, San Francisco! Some people don ’t deserve the U.S.Constitution!
Let the information in this guide help you uncover the danger in

on a typical day in San Francisco.But there are many clues in these
photos suggesting that these people ought to be arrested immediately
and held indefinitely.Take a look.

IN SAN FRANCISCO?”

smoking and had matching jeans —blue. I ’m not sure
what they were up to, but I ’m sure it was something.”
’s here, totally. This guy I know? He reads newspapers?
He ’s always talking about how weird it is that the
president said he wouldn ’t arrest U.S.citizens without
trial and that like, now, he is. Totally questioning the president.
I ’m all like, ‘Chill, dude.’ But he ’s
all on about it. I don ’t think he likes the government,
and we should totally arrest him. Want his address?”

Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'.
Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
