Blog Beat: Oakland School Selection, David Bacon’s KPFA Show, Total Lunar Eclipse Monday

  • Oakland North examines Oakland Unified School District’s school selection process, called OUSD Options.
  • From Monthly Review, David Bacon explains why you haven’t heard his labor show on KPFA the past five weeks.
  • Total lunar eclipse Monday night, our friends at Quest report:

    Though a total lunar eclipse is a rare event to see, this one is rarer still–not the least reason being that for the Western US it will be one of the highest lunar eclipses you can see, with the Moon reaching its apex for the night over 75 degrees from the horizon (practically overhead) close to mid-totality. For our latitudes in the Bay Area, the Moon can’t get much higher than that. So, we get High Moon when the eclipse is at its best (weather permitting).

    Minus the werewolf factor, sounds great…

  • Weather got you down? A glimpse of the Doggie Diner Head should pick you right up…
