Simple Complexity

by Karen A. Placek

In complexity there is simplicity,
once you see simplicity you once again
understand how complex simplicity really is.

When you no longer see the complexity in simplicity,
you begin your own extinction.
Due to your lack of vision
into the complexity that simplicity provides.

Understanding that simplicity provides
complexity with an infinite number
of simple equations to be understood.


You then realize,
that in simplicity you find complexity,
which is the biggest and most complex puzzle,
found, but not understood.

Also known as
This gene is a member of the septin family of nucleotide binding proteins, originally described in yeast as cell division cycle regulatory proteins. Septins are highly conserved in yeast, Drosophila, and mouse, and appear to regulate cytoskeletal organization. Disruption of septin function disturbs cytokinesis and results in large multinucleate or polyploid cells. This gene is highly expressed in brain and heart. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. One of the isoforms (known as ARTS) is distinct; it is localized to the mitochondria, and has a role in apoptosis and cancer. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010]

SF police horse patrol trades in hats for helmets

S.F. POLICE Equine patrol officers join other cities, trade in hats for protective helmets


Updated 11:29 am, Thursday, July 5, 2012

Jeff Roth reckons he has the best job in San Francisco, even though it just changed for the first time in generations - and if the gaggle of adoring children who hang around him is any indication, he may be right.
He punches in to work every day at Golden Gate Park at historic horse stables surrounded by pines. The noisiest sound as he sips his morning coffee is an occasional whinny or the cheeping of baby birds nesting above the stables' doorways.
The toughest part of his job is riding his 13-year-old quarter horse, Rusty. And that's only if you can call enjoying every second in the saddle tough.
Roth is part of the second-oldest mounted police unit in North America. Only New York, which started its horse force two years before San Francisco did in 1874, has an older one.
Once, before the age of automobiles, the mounted unit numbered in the dozens. Now it's down to nine officers, and they still do their jobs the same way they've been done for 138 years - with one new exception.

New helmets
Six months ago, for the first time, the mounted officers were required to wear helmets instead of traditional cloth policeman hats, joining their counterparts in New York, Chicago and other cities.
The last head injury on the force came in 2008 when an officer fell off his horse. He recovered and is still riding, but the incident got administrators thinking about the ramifications of plunging without a brain bucket on from a 6-foot height off a 1,200-pound creature.
Skiers and bicyclists got on the helmet bandwagon in recent decades; the police brass figured it was time to climb on, too.
"Just like riding a motorcycle, it can be a dangerous endeavor," said the unit's Lt. Mike Favetti. "Personally, the helmet's not as comfortable as wearing a soft cap, but if I fell off the horse, I'd be very glad to have it."
The office walls at the 1937 vintage stables - tucked into a grove near the Polo Field - are lined with unit photos dating back to the 1870s. Place one of those alongside today's mounted cops, take off the helmet, and there is no discernible difference.
"Everyone who comes into these stables says we have the best job anywhere, and that's how we feel, too," Roth, 52, said one recent morning as he got Rusty ready to ride. A few feet above his head, a mother barn swallow swooped in and stuffed worms into four hungry chick mouths.
"Where else does that happen at your job?" he said. "This is just a happy place to be."

Still draw stares

That happiness travels with them, judging by the gleeful exclamations from adults and children alike as they clop through town on patrol.
The next reaction from almost everyone is the same, whether it's homeless junkies in the Tenderloin, office workers downtown or kiddies by the beach.
"Can I pet him?" asked 6-year-old Cooper Dong as Officer Wade Bailey rode his 9-year-old paint horse, Sonny, by the Polo Field.
"He'd love that," said Bailey, 56, who grew up working ranches in Wyoming and last month was named best horseman in the state in the annual mounted patrol competition in Folsom.
Cooper's mom, Annadel Dong, looked on in mild wonder. Cooper got a lick on the neck from Sonny in return.
"It's not just a nice way for the children to see policemen," Dong said. "It's nice to know policemen are still going through the park and the city like this, on horses. Makes you feel safer somehow."

Not just PR

Kids, and even grown-ups, get a free silver "Mounted Unit" sticker while they pet the horses, and the officers say that sort of goodwill is a big part of the job.
"A horse is a great icebreaker," Roth said. "Even in the worst neighborhoods of the city, people want to pet them and remember how they rode them as kids, that kind of thing. It makes our jobs a lot easier."
But these aren't just PR critters walking around. Horses are still uniquely useful for police work, the officers said. That's why a half-dozen big cities and every county in California still maintain mounted patrols.
"You can go places a motorcycle can't, over logs and up rocky trails," Roth said. "Plus, you're much higher up on a horse, which can be an advantage in many ways, including with crowds."
At the first Outside Lands concert in Golden Gate Park in 2008, Roth and two of his colleagues came upon two dozen youths tearing down a fence to crash the show. This might have resulted in a clash with officers on foot, but being mounted made it easy.
"We just rode up and herded them like cattle," Roth said. "The trouble stopped fast.
"There is nothing like a good horse."

Guardians Of The City (Circa 1850) The San Francisco Police Department

Historical Review: http://www.guardiansofthecity.org/sfpd/index.html
Town Alcalde Organizes a Police Department
The Alcalde issued a proclamation calling on all good citizens to repair to his office at 3 P. M. of that day; and at that hour the largest public meeting ever held in San Francisco convened. Here follow its proceedings and results.
San Francisco, July 16th, 1849.
Extraordinary excitement having prevailed during the morning among the good citizens of San Francisco generally, on account of an attack made on the tents of Chileans in this place, by a body styling themselves " Regulators" or " Hounds," who had been for some time past disturbing the peace of this place, by acts of violence on peaceable citizens — by robbery and murder — the people assembled on Portsmouth Square.
After some preliminary remarks made by Messrs. Brannan, Smith, Stevenson and others, the meeting was organized by the election of W. D. M. Howard, President; James Ward, W. H. Davis, Vice-Presidents ; Dr. Victor J. Fourgeaud, Secretary.
The chairman having called the meeting to order, Mr. S. Brannan addressed the people, exposing the acts of violence committed by the " Hounds," and calling for prompt action on the part of the people, or their lives and properly would be in danger. Mr. Brannan moved that a subscription list be opened at the Parker House for the relief of the sufferers by the riots, assaults and robbery of last night — which was carried.
A suggestion was made to organize a body of men, to assist the constables in arresting the " Hounds."
A police body was formed, of which Mr. Spofford was appointed chief. In accepting the office, he made an energetic address, and concluded by saying — " when I forget my duty, may God forget me."
The citizens generally enrolled their names for police service, and the meeting adjourned.
  Victor J. Fourgeaud, Secretary.
At 3 P. M., citizens to the number of 230 who had enrolled themselves, assembled around the flagstaff of Portsmouth Square. They were then formed into companies by Mr. Spofford, chief of police. Messrs. Stevenson, Wadieigh, Simmons, Smith, Turk, Gillespie, Hughes, Priest, Webb and Stevens, were appointed captains.

Welcome to the San Francisco Police Museum, Archives & Learning Center’s history site

This site is dedicated to the history of the SFPD from its inception in 1849 to the present. As the site grows and develops, we will feature: photographs, illustrations, historic artifacts, mementoes, stories, factual information and statistics as they relate to the history of the San Francisco Police Department.

There is some disagreement about using the word “first” to describe events or people in a historical context.  While certainly we can all agree that George Washington was the first President of The United States of America, when labeling other facts, the seemingly obvious or claimed circumstance is sometimes ambiguous or semantically confusing.

Official lists documenting San Francisco’s Police Chiefs and Marshals are woefully incomplete. Why? More than one hundred years ago, Police Photographer George Blum inaugurated a tradition of amassing photographs of the Chiefs and assembling them in a collage to be presented to each new Chief upon his appointment to office.  The newly appointed Chief would be featured prominently in the ensemble and the ornately framed image would proudly be displayed in his office or anterior space for all to view and admire.  The custom continues to this day.  In the ensuing years, collages were created two dozen times. Unfortunately, when Blum initiated his artistic endeavor, there were no known or available photographs of Robert Crozier, David Thompson, Hampton North or James McElroy, so those names have basically vanished from most modern documentation.

Who was the first African-American police officer in the SFPD?  Was it William Glenn, #616, who was a member of the 19th Academy Recruit Class in 1943 and worked at Park and Potrero District Stations until 1950 when he was forced to resign due to civil service restrictions?  Or, was it Charles Robinson, also #616, who was appointed in 1950 as a member of the 65th Academy Recruit Class and given the star previously worn by Glenn?

What about policewomen?  Department reference materials, secondary newspaper accounts and even city-endorsed, history blogs incorrectly list, Woman Protective Officer Kate Sullivan as San Francisco’s first policewoman, when in fact, she was the fourth policewoman appointed.
To compound matters, in referring to the history of the San Francisco Police Department specifically, myriad inaccuracies abound in reference materials and official documentation.  Newspaper versions of events can be less than precise, particularly when they are retelling the distant past.
Our archivists and historians are dedicated herein, to presenting exhaustively researched, primary (period) sources for facts and information.  Please enjoy your visit and check back frequently for updates and new features.
