Isaac Mitchell, 17, loved basketball and dreamed of studying psychology. "If there was a moment of joy happening, he wanted to be a part of it," his 6th grade teacher said. He's one of over 50 people who died from gun violence in Oakland this year. https://t.co/nXRIkOvTlH

Like so many folks who felt the Atlanta spa shootings hit close to home, I couldn’t let it go. I didn’t want people to easily forget. So, I went back. For the past few months, Hyun Jung Grant's sons let me into their lives. My last story for NYT: https://t.co/zB4urJ25j8

Many years before last week's "block the boat" campaign, there were boycotts in solidarity with farm workers, strikes against South African Apartheid, and anti-war pickets at the Port of Oakland. @ZZZZZZZZZZZack with the story. https://t.co/VbC9JrPHWw

TL;DR: Pick up some N95 or comparable masks now. Get an indoor air purifier. Have one already? Pick up a second or at least an extra filter. Seal up any leaky windows. The smoke is coming back. There's no if. Only when. My latest on public health for The @Oaklandside. https://t.co/J1ryZL53V5

Health authorities say people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can go unmasked outdoors and in many indoor settings starting June 15. But respirator masks will continue to be part of our daily lives to shield our lungs from smoke during wildfire season. https://t.co/wdaHsQAI2p

“It was just so obvious that he was spending every waking minute—weekends, evenings— thinking about these kids,” said Karen Thompson, calling 'Teacher Bill', a “born kindergarten teacher.” In a challenging year, meet 5 teachers who rose to the occasion: https://t.co/ehqtp4au8O https://t.co/3aiwXkuz3S

People's Park has a new, semi-permanent kitchen/pantry that's provided 5,000 meals since March. Residents say it's meeting a basic need. But it may not last long, with Cal officials maintaining that the park can't be transformed into safe, livable space. https://t.co/mqI3yLels3 https://t.co/LzXNQVKkM9

There is a one letter difference between the Russian words for cat (кот) and whale (кит). A Soviet children's book from the '80s imagined what it would be like if they switched places: https://t.co/oeVQMeVYT0

The city of Berkeley is appealing an April court ruling that green-lighted a large apartment complex at 1900 Fourth Street, continuing a nearly decade-long battle over development on a property considered sacred to the Ohlone tribe. https://t.co/6SAO8R7fjG

Officials hinted at it over last year but we didn't know the full extent: 411 Alameda Co. deaths attributed to COVID-19 have now been adjusted, via @citizenkrans. “Nothing about this changes our policy decisions now or during the height of the pandemic.” https://t.co/qgyv57RBe4

This fall, in the thick of distance learning, Berkeley students were... attending class more regularly... ?? We looked into the data and learned that daily attendance is up, chronic absenteeism is down. Here's why, and what the data doesn't show: https://t.co/zjBDaixXO8 https://t.co/eGCgcx10sJ

Breaking: Oakland Police Chief Armstrong said at a press conference today that his claims that protesters were preparing Molotov cocktails at last year’s 6/1 George Floyd protest were wrong. Police weren’t justified in using tear gas and rubber bullets on protesters. https://t.co/RSKFPZh1D5
