QUOTE OF THE DAY
“I think I bring a lot to the table especially given that we are missing an Asian-American woman in the Assembly at this point. I admire Kansen very much and I consider him my mentor and he is very progressive. I consider myself just as progressive, if not more. My policy perspective would be coming from being a single mom.”

Plans for Ohlone College Property Scrapped

 

Faced with resistance from residents and city officials, Ohlone College and its development partner have scrapped plans to build stores, flats and townhouses on the front lot of its Fremont campus — a project the school had hoped would generate much needed revenue. The announcement comes after more than two years of joint efforts to bring 275 residential rental units and 6,500 square feet of retail space to three parcels on Ohlone’s frontage property along Mission Boulevard between Witherly Lane and Pine Street.

IT’S NOT JUST AN “M”
 
Everyone knows about the Golden Arches and that the “M” stands for “McDonald’s.” But what you might not
know is that in the
1960s design consultant and psychologist Louis Cheskin said customers unconsciously
recognize the logo as “symbolism of a pair of nourishing breasts.” I think the dude just needed a date.

This is one of the best-known logo images, but just in case you’ve missed it, look between the “E” and the “x.” In the white space, there’s an arrow that subliminally represents speed and precision.

Interestingly enough, FedEx made sure to include the arrow in the logo used in Arabic-speaking countries, too. You probably noticed that this arrow appears to point backward. That’s because Arabic is read from right to left.


This Wendy’s logo appears to say the word “Mom” in Wendy’s collar, suggesting that their cooking is like Mom’s home-cooked meals. You know, if mom made square hamburgers and served ketchup in small paper cups.


The Chick-fil-A logo incorporates a chicken into the “C.” Although this isn’t very hidden, it is still pretty clever, more so than their attempts to have people believe that their meals are nutritious

Considering they’re often referred to as “the Peacock Network,” among other things, this one is rather obvious. But the symbolism of the colored feathers represent each division of NBC (from when the logo was first designed, as there are more now) and the head of the peacock is looking right, meant to symbolize looking forward (to a show that can compete with “Mad Men” and “Modern Family.”)

Not only is the Amazon logo smiling, but there’s also an arrow starting at the “a” and ending on the “z” to indicate that Amazon has everything from A to Z that you don’t need but will buy so you spent enough to qualify for free shipping

Here’s the scoop: Famously known for its 31 flavors (supposedly so that a customer could have a new flavor every day of the month) Baskin-Robbins makes it known in their logo.


Zoom your eyes over this racing logo and you’ll see the empty space in the middle creates a number “1″ for “Formula 1.″

While you were shoving chips in your face you might have missed that there was an actual fiesta going on in the Tostitos logo. Yes, the two t’s are partying over a bowl of dipping sauce that dots the “i.” Olé!

The NFL team’s logo is much more than a really cool looking bird. Rather, it’s a really cool looking bird in the shape of a big letter “F” for Falcons and other four-letter words disgruntled fans might utter throughout the season.


Because giving (and saving) should make you happy, the “G” in “Goodwill” is zoomed in and cropped to form a smiling face.

In this case, look directly at the sun (and only in this case, unless you want to burn your eyes out). Actually, look directly at the diamond and you’ll see it says “Sun” in every direction.

There is a cyclist in there, literally, on “Tour.” Notice how the “o,” “u,” and “R” all come together along with the yellow dot to form the image.


Want a free Hershey Kiss? Check the front of the bag. OK, it’s a bit disappointing that it’s not actually a piece of chocolate, but if you look between the “K” and the “I” you just might find an extra one, at least visually.


Considering the point of Pinterest is for users to “pin” things like projects and recipes they’ll never create to virtual boards, it makes sense that the logo incorporates a pin into the letter “P.”

THE WAYBACK MACHINE
Re: H Units: On one swing shift we received a "211 armed in progress" at the Alum Rock Market.
Several H Units went '10-97' at the scene. I asked then-Sgt . Bob Moir how they arrived so quickly.
He said, "We were at the Alum Rock Drive In Theater on stakeout." It seemed a little strange as
 the movie that was showing was either "Deep Throat" or "Behind the Green Door." We drew our own
conclusions as to what they were actually staking out. Anything to add for clarification, Bob?
Please let us know.”
