Bad landlords have become increasingly aggressive in trying to use the law against AirBnB rentals where it doesn't actually apply (surprise!) Jason and Pirate Jenny discuss the recent court ruling, and offer tips on how to safely do a home-swap or sublet, even if you think you don't have the right to do one.

Too affectionate to be a good judge of character, Dina did, however, invaluably clue the Tenants Union in about which candidate for City office came to our endorsement meeting totally smashed. A lifelong Green, Dina enthusiastically did her part to recycle lunch scraps from the TU wastebaskets—so very enthusiastically that she could occasionally be spotted wearing the swing-through top from one of the wastebaskets.
The Oakland pound said she was a year-old Husky mix. Thirteen years later, I'm glad I didn't know I was in fact adopting a completely untrained six-month old Malamute mix, or I'd have missed out on one of the lights of my life.
The sweetest-natured dog ever, Dina loved human company, and her favorite spot was anywhere in between any two—or three, or four, or ten—friends. At our old apartment building, where she was the only pet, the little kids would gather around her in a circle and play “How Many Hands Can We Get on Dina?” The record was 16 hands, some of them toddlers', all petting her at once. (Dina converted two of our dog-despising neighbors there, each of who became a dog-lover and dog-adopter.)
From the day I adopted her, she could distinguish between libraries and stores, where she'd sit quietly in the car, and Places Where She Could Meet Human Friends: if I pulled up in front of a house, even one we’d never been visited before, Dina would howl—she knew there were about to be humans socializing, and she wanted to be part of it.
Dina was the most playful dog in any given park, and the belle of the park ball. Another dog-owner would begin the familiar litany, “Oh, my dog doesn’t play, he’s eight years old, and after all, he’s a Chow—” and his jaw would drop before he could finish the sentence, as Dina and his Chow-Chow raced by together.
After a period of fierce enchantment/obsession with the new kitten, Dina became a little jealous, and somewhat protective of me around him as well (maybe it was my screams whenever the kitten would launch himself from the floor onto my neck and dig in?) Nevertheless, she would often let him curl up with her to sleep, as she did on her last night.
Dina was diagnosed Friday with lymphoma, with an estimated month to live. Early Tuesday morning, she died painlessly at home. Happy Trails, sweetheart.

Roundtable discussion with writer/artist Liz Worthy and community organizer Alexandra Goldman about the new gentrification epidemic overtaking the Mission and the rest of San Francisco.
Worthy's HEIST Boutique, an installation opening this Saturday, Feb.16th, in the box office window of the Roxie Theatre, is a response to the displacement of long-time Mission businesses serving Latino, working-class, and alternative communities by those catering to an influx of residents who can indulge in high-end tastes. Goldman, who is completing her Masters in City Planning at U.C. Berkeley, will talk about her research into the impact of the Google bus stops on San Francisco neighborhoods. (Hint: It's not 'not evil' for renters.).

The new wave of evictions already decimating San Francisco will swell massively if legislation to be heard this Monday, January 28, goes forward unchallenged. Come out to the rally & press conference conference/rally sponsored by tenant, community, and senior groups and let the Supervisors know: Don’t Sell Us Out!
Noon: Rally/Press conference on the steps of City Hall, Polk St. side
1:00 p.m. Come testify at the hearing, Rm. 263, City Hall., especially if you are being evicted or have been. If being evicted would leave you homeless or force you out of San Francisco, be sure to let the Supervisors know.
Ted Gullickson of the SF Tenants Union and Becca Gourevitch of the SFTU and Occupy Housing join Pirate Jenny to discuss what this legislation will do to tenants.
What tenants need to know:
Supervisors Scott Weiner and Mark Farrell have introduced a bill that would allow the 2,000 TICs [tenancies in common, smaller buildings w/multiple owners] now in the condo lottery to bypass the usual limit of 200 conversions/year. Instead, Weiner will let them all instantly condo-convert for a fee of a few thousand dollars--instantly increasing the worth of each unit worth by 20%-40%: $150,000-$300,00 more. This is the profit motive driving many fabricated or illegal evictions (and a big wet kiss for those Weiner/s and Farrell/s many speculator/realtor/developer donors).
Framed now as a one-time only exception 'for the sake of efficiency,' Weiner/s bill will result in an estimated 5,000+ tenant evictions--and it is clearly intended to set a precedent (after all, when does efficiency ever go out of vogue?)
If your home-turned-condo has not yet been sold, profit-focused landlords will push for evictions with buyout offers, threats, or faked causes. Once your home-turned-condo *is* sold, you are even more at risk: rent-control disappears, and you can be evicted at the landlord’s will or whim, without any just cause. See you Monday!

The Supe races in D1 & 5 will determine WHETHER RENT CONTROL IS KILLED. Really—no hype.
DON'T VOTE for DAVID LEE or LONDON BREED!
Guest Calvin Welch knows where the bodies are buried and isn't afraid to tell. Join us for some extremely candid dishing on the upcoming election—who's buying who, the story beneath the story, and what's really at stake this year, w/special attention to the crucial races, D1 and D5. Calvin makes a compelling case for Christina Olague as the only one in D5 who can beat anti-rent-control conspirator London Breed.
Calvin Welch has worked in the affordable housing arena for decades. He is currently Projects Director for the Council of Community Housing Organizations and a board member of the Haight Ashbury Neighborhood Council, neither of which he is representing on tonight's show.
Tenants Union endorsements at SFTU.org., incl.NO on Prop B ($ *not* guaranteed to go to parks, can go to privatization schemes) , NO on Prop. 35 (badly-written law may actually give traffickers an out & hurts victims) and NO on Prop 38 (a decoy to kill the real ed bill, Prop 30).
