A visit to a juvenile detention facility reminds Jaime Flores why programs to support young people are so important. I became aware of the personal and collective costs of disconnection when I walked into a detention center. Some call these places juvenile hall. In each unit there were young men and women out of school. From what I saw, youth only …
 
When Dorothy O’Donnell tried to join a hiking group the email that followed was surprising at first, then it was infuriating. Recently, I joined a local Meet Up hiking group online. I did so because a friend wanted me to accompany her on one of their hikes. And I figured it might be a fun way to meet new people. To my surprise, the morning after I …
 
You’re never too young to learn financial literacy. Those that don’t often never do. Charlotte Sivanich has this Perspective. Three years ago, when I was assigned to teach an applied math class that included personal finance topics, I thought I had a decent amount of financial knowledge, especially since my mom has worked at a bank for the past 40 …
 
Plants are beautiful and useful, but what if they’re much more than that? Lane Parker has this Perspective. Spring is in full swing, and gardeners of all varieties are striving to help their plants thrive. I remember hearing, many years ago, that plants grew better if you talked to them. The words didn’t matter; simply talking produced beneficial r…
 
Virtual learning has been hard on everyone involved but schools are cautiously starting to open up. Vanessa Dueck and her two children are ready for a taste of normal. My 7-year-old son and I were sitting on the same bench we had sat at most every afternoon during the pandemic. He had just finished another day of Zoom school and I was starting to w…
 
The pandemic has changed San Francisco, and Margie O’Driscoll set out to document it. When the pandemic began, I started an Instagram account photographing a changing San Francisco. After looking over thousands of photos, here’s what I observed: Over the last year of quarantine, San Francisco considered most construction an “essential service” so b…
 
Angel Island graces San Francisco Bay, but its buildings house one of the darkest times in American immigration history, when Chinese, even Chinese American citizens, were subjected to harsh discrimination. Larry Jin Lee has this Perspective. I have not been on Angel Island since I was a teenager and a visit was long overdue. But I was not fully aw…
 
More than three million Americans are getting vaccinated each day as supply increases and restrictions tumble. And Debbie Duncan says every shot is a story. Hear that? It’s the sound of floodgates opening for Californians ages 16 and up to sign up for COVID-19 vaccines. Just as I’ve been grateful the past year to live where masks are the social nor…
 
Nature astounds and challenges us all, as Deidre Silverman discovers on a simple walk near her home. The day was too inviting to be indoors. I pushed my work aside, and took a fast walk to a nearby field. It was a perfect spring afternoon. The field was a lush green from recent, most welcome rains; the sky was cloudless. As I turned into the field,…
 
Despite a reputation for individuality, Silicon Valley companies are often mired in conformity. Tracy Coté says the path to diversity and success is marked with questioning assumptions and recognizing bias. As an HR professional, I often have conversations where managers reject candidates for lack of an indefinable quality called “presence.” Profes…
 
Avery Grant says it’s the quiet voices that are often the most worth listening to. I have practiced ballet for the past 15 years and recently started to learn American Sign Language. Human communication is an art. I find happiness in expression through movement, challenging the typical ways and norms of communication. Words can often take up space,…
 
Racism thrives on ignorance of the history that isn’t taught is history erased. Sarah Javier has this Perspective. Patriotism was plentiful in my childhood as a Filipino-American U.S. Navy brat. But despite how American I was, I often felt like a foreigner in my conservative Southern hometown. I thought things would change once I moved to the Bay, …
 
In the mass COVID vaccination program, Lynn Bruno sees features of a health care system that we can only dream about. At a recent checkup at Kaiser, a nurse suggested that although I’m not eligible for the COVID vaccine yet, I could come to the clinic at closing time to see if I could get a leftover shot. She said I could even bring my daughter, wh…
 
Ellen Greenblatt encounters herself during a walk under a full moon. A full moon rises after sunset, appearing dramatically low and huge in the sky. If you are walking under a forest canopy, as the lucky few of us on the recent monthly Full Moon Hike offered at Point Reyes National Seashore, it’s mighty dark before the moon shows itself. But oh my,…
