William W. Piegorsch, a researcher at the University of Arizona, has come up with a very complicated system for predicting what cities are the most vulnerable to bioterrorism, according to an article yesterday on Science Daily. The good news is that he has managed to distill the information down to a pretty map with three colors on it. Green is Good, yellow is Okay, and red is Oh Shit Run. The map takes into account "social aspects, natural hazards, and construction of the city and its infrastructure." San Francisco is ranked a solid yellow. Score. If you are planning a move to Boise, however, you may want to reconsider. — Andy Wright

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    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.'"
