Natural hot springs have been around for thousands of years, but most local resorts were founded during the heady days of ’60s counterculture and the ’70s New Age movement. As Eastern spirituality was embraced, clothes were abandoned. So here’s a candid rundown — open kimono, if you will — of prominent Northern California hot springs based on comfort level for never nudes.
Vichy proprietor Gilbert Ashoff offered this empowering never nude mantra for hot springs resorts: “One is no closer to nirvana with or without a bathing suit.” Of course, the little guy on the cover of Nevermind didn’t think so, but point taken. Vichy requires bathing suits.

Filmmaker Lionel Desai set his first feature-length movie in San Francisco’s Mission because it reminded him of where he lived when he was a youngster.
“The Mission takes me back to places in India and Kenya,” says the San Francisco-based writer-director of “Summer Sacrament,” which gets its world premiere Sunday in The City.
“I started writing from that, and got to the time when a boy becomes a man,” he says, and added in aspects of his own background, growing up Catholic.
Desai also plays a young priest at the family’s church, a character inspired by “amazing” priests and brothers from his own youth “who didn’t stay long enough to be role models.”

Nomica is a fresh, contemporary take on Japanese cuisine, set in the vibrant Upper Market neighborhood of San Francisco. A sister to the highly awarded Sushi Ran in Sausalito, Nomica puts an urban twist on innovative Japanese food. Nomica’s name (Noe-Mission-Castro), a nod to our vibrant neighborhood, by happy coincidence, also means “drinking house” in Japanese. Our full bar features creative cocktails made with awamori, a traditional Okinawan spirit.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick said. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."
"You can become a cop in six months and you don't have to have the same amount of training as a cosmetologist," he said. "That's insane. I mean, someone that's holding a curling iron has more education and more training than people that have a gun and are going out on the street to protect us."
"...we recognize the right of an individual to choose and participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem."
But the 49ers will cut him before the season starts.
As do most things, ultimately the issue comes down to money. Since he was on the 49ers roster as of April 1 of this year his contract guarantees his nearly $12 million dollar salary for 2016 -- but if he is released before the end of training camp the 49ers would not have to pay the $1.1 million bonus he would then be due.
So while his $11 million salary this year is guaranteed, they might have decided to move on, save the roster bonus, and avoid the risk of an injury that could put them on the hook for next year's salary as well.
Right now Kaepernick is a mediocre employee, and the 49ers will make the decision to let him go mostly for performance and money reasons... but also because he may no longer be worth the distraction he may cause.

“FiDi was a natural choice because our food is quick, fresh, and healthy. For people that eat lunch out several times a week, they can come to Sababa and have a real meal, with vibrant flavors and seasonings, but within their lunch hour and budget.“
“Sababa is a Hebrew and Arabic slang word meaning to have a good time - and really that’s how I describe what we try to do at Sababa.”
“I’ve always wanted to open my own restaurant, but always thought it would be later in my life, after years of fine dining training. Instead, I came to the conclusion that I like cooking casual, tasty food, especially my childhood cuisine from Israel. At the age of 23, instead of finishing up a business degree while working in fine dining, I decided to take the plunge and pursue Sababa seriously.“
“I’ve probably changed the recipe (for the falafel) 10 times before I was happy with it. That being said, I highly recommend trying a sabik sandwich. It’s something uniquely Israeli. It comes from Iraqi jews that came to Israel, and it’s now one of the most popular sandwiches in Israel.”

A 20-year-old man was beaten and robbed of school supplies by a group of muggers inside a restroom at Westfield San Francisco Centre, just two days after the body of a restaurant worker was found slain in a stairwell at the mall.
The body was later identified as 28-year-old Frank Galicia, a line cook at the Michelin-starred restaurant Sons & Daughters in Union Square.
An investigation by The Chronicle in January showed that the 800 block of Market Street, which includes the Westfield mall, generates more crime reports than any other single block in the city.
