On the afternoon of April 24th: consider being a census taker (if you have an MBA or PH.D) or a crazily well-paid wine blogger; San Jose school officials wonder whether their “Pizzamatic” is worth the cost; assuage your kid’s man-boob fears with a children’s book about eco-anxiety.


Being aware of suspicious packages and shoe bombers isn’t enough at SFO – you gotta watch out for errant geese, too. The airport is third on a federal list of serious wildlife accidents that take place at airports. Chron

SF has added Krakow, Poland, to its ever-growing list of sister cities. Chron


SF census director says he’s flooded with PH.D and MBA job applicants. Sigh. SF Weekly


Sonoma County Winery is looking for a blogger to, essentially, twitter about winemaking. The pay is $10,000/month for six months –seriously. The application process, which begins in SF with a “meet the boss” kiosk and also involves a video audition, leads one to believe this job is more about garnering publicity than finding the best blogger out there (Or, maybe, “one” is just a little jealous).

Sunday Streets begins this weekend! This Sunday’s pedestrian-focused festivities include a chance to run the bases at Candlestick Park. CBS5

San Jose school officials are being criticized for spending money on a pizza making machine called the Pizzamatic. Apparently, for the same amount of money they’ve already spent on the device, they could have bought 28 Olympic-sized pools or over 200 baseball fields. Yes, but then they wouldn’t have a self-cleaning mozzarella conveyor or the option of varying pepperoni size! ABC7

More than 200 people at UC Berkeley may have been exposed to tuberculosis. Um, don’t worry, it’s not transferable via the internet (full disclosure: I go to Cal). ABC7

Gridskipper says their list of SF Middle Eastern restaurants will please anyone “looking for a good meal, a soft cushion, and a pretty girl to ogle.” We’ll disregard the blatant sexism so that you can find the best hummus in the land. Gridskipper

Street sweeper reductions are costing Muni money, since less people are getting parking tickets. SF citizens are apparently divided on this issue; I, personally, am biased because I am still bitter about my car being towed while I was writing my news roundups last week. Curbed SF
