    Wednesday Dec 3 | Inside Bay Area

    Q Are there plans to roll out a FasTrak transponder for Bay Area residents that have the switch to designate how many people are in a car? My relatives live along the I-10 in Los Angeles and it is really frustrating to not be able to use the carpool lane for free when our family goes down there because my transponder cannot distinguish the number of passengers but the express lanes are already set up so that everyone needs one.

  10. Fire retardant chemicals found in small group of CaliforniansRead the original story w/Photo

    Nov 11, 2014 | Inside Bay Area

    A new study -- the first of its kind -- released Wednesday shows that a small group of people carry in their bodies traces of chemicals in flame retardants that for decades have been used in the manufacturing of furniture and children's products. The study, while small, offers the first glimpse of how these chemicals, which have been shown to cause cancer, neurological diseases and developmental disorders, have been absorbed into people's bodies simply by sitting on a couch or breathing in dust, and offers a strategy for state and local bio-monitoring programs to test larger populations, experts say.

  14. Oakland Tribune editorial: Minimum wages should be raised, but Oakland's Measure FF is not the wayRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 29, 2014 | Inside Bay Area

    Oakland's Measure FF demonstrates why boosting the minimum wage on a city-by-city basis is a bad idea, especially through the initiative process. There's little doubt the state's minimum wage of $9 an hour, set to reach $10 in 2016, is insufficient.
