Why San Francisco is poised to save the future – right now

The problems San Francisco’s facing today could really change the course of the city’s future. Local author Annalee Newitz says that future is something we should start trying to protect right now. Newitz wrote the new book Scatter, Adapt, and Remember: How Humans Will Survive a Mass Extinction. She describes it as an “optimistic book about extinction.” In it, she looks at how humans could deal with a catastrophe along the lines of what killed the dinosaurs.

Meet your neighbors: San Francisco's Arguello Market is more than just a turkey sandwich

When I moved to San Francisco’s Inner Richmond last year, I found a lot of things to like -- Golden Gate Park, Ocean Beach, even the fog. But when I started telling people exactly where I lived, they only cared about one thing: the turkey sandwiches at the Arguello Market. When I went to check it out, I found that the sandwiches were indeed great -- but that wasn’t all that made the place special.
