California Gubernatorial Candidate Neel Kashkari pretended to be homeless for one week, as part of his latest campaign pitch.
Kashkari chose to showcase the city of Fresno as a place where there is little opportunity.
Current Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearingen is a popular Republican running for State Controller. Of all of the places in California, supporters of Swearingen and US Congressman Jeff Denham (Republican) wonder why Kashkari chose to showcase Fresno as a place of run-down streets and poverty. They note that there are several great sections of Fresno and recovering economic success stories, none of which were displayed in the video.
In this video, Kashkari claims to only have $40 and walks into a couple of places (with a camera person) asking for work. Kashkari is not shown with any type of resume.
Kashkari’s campaign team told the Fresno Bee newspaper that they carried media release forms, so that people filmed could legally be shown.
The crew rolled tape as Kashkari supposedly tried to sleep on brick walls, park benches and in the middle of parking lots. In one part of the video, as the person with the high definition camera is standing just a few feet away from the “sleeping” Kashkari, a security guard drives up to say that it is a private property and they need to move on.
Kashkari is running as a Republican against current Democratic Governor Jerry Brown. In 2008, Kashkari voted for the Obama/Biden ticket over the McCain/Palin ticket claiming that Obama and Biden could better handle the economy than McCain and Palin.
Kashkari has been endorsed by Jeb Bush and Karl Rove.

(San Jose Mercury) – Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper’s proposal to split California into six states has raised eyebrows across the country.
Some eyebrows are now being raised higher at a video in which he performs a partial striptease as he declares his support for women in technology.
The 2 1/2 minute clip shows Draper’s acceptance speech for an award he won in 2008 from Astia, a venture capital firm that invests in female-led companies.
After declaring “the sky is the limit” for companies he supports, Draper removes one article of clothing for each female-led firm in which he invested.
The striptease ends with Draper wearing only pants and singing a song he wrote called “Riskmaster.”
Steve Maviglio, co-founder of One California, a group opposed to Draper’s plan, said he thinks the video will cause viewers to question Draper’s judgment.
“He’s somebody who has a lot of time and money on his hands and is not in the mainstream of California thinking,” Maviglio said.
Roger Salazar, a communications consultant for Draper, declined to comment.

Don’t you hate it when you own a mine that continues to produce too much water during the middle of a drought?
I guess you just have to purposefully evaporate it. After all, that’s what the state requires.

Last week, an air passenger documented his flight from Tokyo to San Francisco. Thanks to technology and a Go-Pro camera, the trip only appeared to take 83 seconds. This is an impressive showing, considering it takes about 10 hours to fly between the two cities.
According to the creator, it took 3,400 separate images (timed every 10 seconds) to make the time-lapse video, which starts at Narita Airport in Tokyo and ends at SFO. Some of the middle-of-the-night footage was eliminated to help speed up the section where the viewer can no longer see a single thing.
As you begin to see the impressive sunrise, you’ll also notice the appearance of the planet Venus.
Sit back and enjoy the flight!« go back — keep looking »
