So long as the two companies don't perform on the same night, they should help each other's attendance. This is great news. Both companies will doubtless bleed tons of money, but Opera isn't about money, it's about love.

A lawsuit against the City for police conduct is not done for quick cash, unlike many misdemeanors and civil cases filed by the City Attorney. As a practical matter, typically I would urge someone to forget such an incident and move on, just as I would recommend following police instructions, even if unlawful. It's great that someone has the time, money and interest to correct the excesses of our police. They don't police themselves.

She's right to take her case to court, and it's a public service to do so, win or lose. If she beat the DA in court already, she might have a case. She didn't start this. Let's hope we learn the whole story. If an attorney has seen a trial transcript and advised her to proceed, our Police Dept. might lose the City yet another six figure lawsuit.

Perhaps they average in season tickets and complimentary tickets. There are no tickets currently available under $15.00

When comparing this proposed Stadium to the San Francisco Stadium, we should remember that San Francisco's Candlestick Park was a disaster, foggy and miserably cold in a pleasant city, with wind conditions that disrupted play. They had real reason to replace Candlestick. No one complains about conditions at Qualcomm, only that the City hasn't maintained it. We could spend one billion dollars and get an inferior stadium. In the crazy pitchman's spiel, used to promote this new Stadium, very similar to the one replaced, they don't bother to tell us the deficiencies this new Stadium will fix. Our Stadium doesn't need to be replaced.

I doubt this plan will please the Chargers, I suspect they want all the Stadium property for themselves, as well as the right to condemn downtown land with skyscraper permits in their pocket. We'll see. Whatever agreement they sign, they will threaten to leave the City with a useless Stadium. The Chargers refused to honor every contract they signed with the City. Saddling the City with a billion dollar boondoggle will only improve their bargaining position. It would be better to just pay the Chargers to play at Qualcomm, at least we would get an honest mugging, rather than a robbery to be named later.

The word Yoga, refers to any path to enlightenment, could be of different faiths. Here in the U.S. Yoga refers to a few of those paths as imported from India. My Religious Studies teacher joked that disciplines designed to help Indians find God, help Americans find the patience to wait in line. This is the sort of Yoga taught to schoolchildren no doubt.

Some of these taxi owners are individual drivers who saved or borrowed to get these medallions. Combined with Uber and Lyft essentially ignoring the need for a medallion, the whole industry is now in confusion. I urge the City to study the policies of successful cab cities, New York and Chicago, London and Sydney for example, where cabs are easy to find and comparatively cheap.
