The Snatch: We Don't Spy on You in the Bathroom. 

Tuesday, Jul 29 2014

Act 40, Look 25

If you're feeling youthful today, it's not because you are young. It's because you are good at loading up on age-defying products that make you look younger than you are. And the built-in exercise you get from walking steep local hills doesn't hurt. Not surprisingly, San Francisco — a city that prides itself on being lean, fit, and balking at tanning beds — was ranked the No. 1 city in the nation where residents are most successful at defying their real age. (Los Angeles didn't even make the Top 10.) According to Realself, a health consumer information site, San Francisco earned high scores for having residents who eat healthfully, stay physically fit, and remain hyper-concerned with the way their skin looks and feels. Major U.S. cities with more than 300,000 people were ranked based on a dozen criteria that impact the aging of the body and skin, including sun exposure, smoking, stress, and access to dermatologists and fitness centers. Even when considering long commutes and sleep deprivation — two fixtures for the Bay Area workforce — San Francisco prevailed.

Private Eyes

A former San Francisco State University professor has been charged with videotaping 15 students in his apartment bathroom. Mark Landis, who was an associate professor of accounting in the College of Business, has been charged with 15 counts of invasion of privacy, according to Alex Bastian, a spokesman for the District Attorney's Office. Landis is out of custody on $100,000 bail. According to the Examiner, the former accounting professor invited several current and former SFSU students over for a party. He then allegedly secretly filmed them while they used the bathroom, authorities said. During one of those parties, a male student used the bathroom at Landis' house and noticed a tissue box with a flashing light inside. When he looked underneath the box, he found a camera. The student grabbed the memory card from the camera, and an official investigation began.

  • 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.'"
