Whole-istic Business 

Wednesday, Jan 9 2013
Many of us who call this expensive city home spend nearly all of our income on rent. This leaves us with little cash leftover, besides a few bucks for essentials, like food (and beer). And if you’re like many in San Francisco who are concerned about the food they consume, then you might occasionally drop part of your “whole paycheck” at Whole Foods. With locations popping up all over the city, most recently in Ingleside and the Haight with a soon-to-be-opened location at Market and Dolores, it’s safe to say we San Franciscans are contributing to the company’s rapid takeover of the organic grocery scene. You’ve got to hand it to Whole Foods, though; it’s carved out quite a niche in the health food market, and for that you can thank CEO John Mackey. He recently co-authored a book, Conscious Capitalism, in which he discusses the company’s holistic and eco-friendly business plan in today’s competitive market, where success depends on more than just profits. Mackey urges corporations to focus not just on money, but on the emotional, ecological, and spiritual purposes of business.

  • 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.'"
