Companies like LimeBike and ofo seem to have a lot of money for bikes. Can they actually make money?

The Econometer panel weighs in on those dockless bikes you're seeing everywhere in San Diego. Can these companies turn a profit?

Today was Brownie's lucky day, she just doesn't know it yet. Brownie (4375) was adopted today. Brownie, an 8 year old, standard (26 lbs.) girl came to SCDR in early April after the toddler in her former home succeeded in injuring Brownie's back, not once, but twice, resulting in 2 episodes of steroids, pain meds, and weeks of crate rest.

For her safety the family asked us to find her a home that was better for her. Today, Brownie met her new mom and dad. Linda and Kenny applied for several of our dogs over the past few weeks, but each time they were just a little too late. The dogs were already committed to other families. We notified them when Brownie arrived in rescue, and they jumped at the chance to adopt her.

Brownie was less than her usual friendly self at first. Normally, she is an "alpha" personality, pushing to the front of the line for treats and attention. Today, she was stand-offish and cautious. Who were these people? And why are they here? It took a handful of Charlie Bears (little treats) to win Miss Brownie over. But once she decided she liked Linda and Kenny, she was all kissy-kissy. Apparently, she wanted time to size them up and then decide if they were acceptable to her.

Here is Brownie celebrating her new family. Please join us in wishing Linda and Kenny a long and happy life with Brownie. ...

These numbers mirror our "Justice" system as well. When will we be disturbed enough to demand a revolution of our systems. They need to be dismantled, regeared, redine, and then reapplied.
These stats are disgusting.

#RiseUpAsOne ...

Today was a big day for Oscar (4365). He was adopted by Athena and her dacshie girl, Penny. Oscar, a 4 year old black and tan, originally came into rescue a couple of months ago from the Visalia shelter, along with another male dachshund. Unfortunately, the boys did not get along, so we decided to place them separately. Oscar showed a preference for females, so when Athena applied to adopt the third dachshund from SCDR, we suggested Oscar.

Oscar was not an easy dog at first. He came from a back yard breeder who left him and his siblings outside 24/7 with little or no human socialization, leash training, or house training. It took weeks of one-on-one training to get Oscar ready for adoption. He is 90% there, and Athena is confident she can get him all the way with some time and dedication. This is not her first dachshund, so we have faith she will be able to help Oscar be the dachshund he was always meant to be.

Here are Athena with Penny (3128) and Oscar (4365). Please join us in wishing her good luck with training Oscar and for a long, happy life together. ...

When trans people enter the justice system, they are vulnerable to systemic violence, dehumanization and brutality – outrageously, at the hands of the very people sworn to protect and serve.

So much love and support to our friend and colleague, Ebony Harper, who endured this traumatic experience on her humanity with grace, dignity and resolve, serving some much-needed hard truths in the process.

Much love, solidarity, and all power to Ebony and my other sisters of color & trans sisters. We SHOULD be in this together! When you hurt, I hurt. #RiseUpAsOne #EndPoliceBrutality #EndRacism #EndTransphobia #EndMisogynior
👊

Just heard this on local news this morning! Most prisons do not make accommodations for transfolk.

Standing with our sister, our siblings as we must oppose hostility and violence embedded in "our" institutions.

Standing in solidarity with Ebony
