If we don’t there won’t be anyone around to serve the food, fix the telephone poles or clerk in a retail store.If enough folks leave, rental rates and housing demand may go down.Increase the minimum wage to an actual living wage, allow more density as Oakland has done for accessory structures in residential neighborhoods and allow more multiunit housing in areas close to bus/BART.[...] there are affordable housing programs where in the city offers developers extra floors and exemptions from other requirements in exchange for promises to include affordable housing.Mission Economic Development Agency (MEDA) workshops and free coaching help low-income and working-class first-time home buyers learn of their many options to get into the tight and costly San Francisco market.The guidelines for Area Median Income (AMI) vary by property, ranging up to 120 percent, and is dependent on the family’s available downpayment.The principal amount, plus an equitable share of appreciation, is paid at the end of the loan term, or repaid upon sale or transfer.With the City cognizant of the need to help our middle-class SFUSD educators live where they work, the Teacher Next Door (TND) program was created for households making no more than 200 percent AMI.TND funds can be used for downpayment and closing costs to purchase either a BMR or a market-rate unit.Just look around at the huge parking lots surrounding business parks, malls - the cars sit there, baking in the sun, when they could either be underground or, even better, decreased in numbers because employees would have frequent, affordable public transportation with a well researched network of routes.Cities literally take years, not months, to approve projects, and a great deal of the blame for that lies squarely on us: existing residents do not want more housing in their neighborhood because more housing brings more traffic.

- ‘Game of Thrones': Clues About the Ironborn and House Greyjoy From Real Viking History (Guest Blog)

Ironborn military power is underpinned by their slender, beautifully designed warships which allow them to strike at will along the Westerosi coastline, and so it’s tempting to compare them with the Vikings, the medieval Scandinavian raiders who brought terror to Europe for three centuries.When he discovers that Theon’s splendid neck chain was bought rather than stolen, Balon tears it from his son’s neck, snarling, “That bauble around your neck, did you pay the iron-price for it, or the gold?” Balon clearly is not the kind of medieval Scandinavian king who would be celebrated by his court poets (skalds) for distributing treasure; no one would praise him as a “breaker of rings” or a “thrower of gold” or even a “hater … of the flame-red dragon square,” to cite just a few of Old Norse poetry’s terms for the generous king.The military successes of the Viking-age Scandinavians — settling northern England, founding Dublin and establishing the duchy of Normandy — were possible because their ships could travel far up the great rivers of Europe.The Great Army which swept across northern England in 865 A.D. took horses from those they defeated and thus were mobile enough to achieve military success inland, away from the rivers and coastlines where they easily could regroup on their ships.The Ironborn’s faith is very different from any version of Viking religion that we know of, but their belief in life after death closely resembles a watery version of Valhalla, the god Odin’s great hall, where the valkyries bring heroes who die in battle.When Yara and Theon sailed to Meereen to put their 50 ships at the disposal of Daenerys Targaryen for her long-anticipated invasion of Westeros, Daenerys agreed to support Yara’s claim to the Salt Chair, the Ironborn throne.The Vikings may have left their homelands because population pressure made it hard for them to sustain a living by agriculture on the thin soils and limited flatlands of the Norwegian or Icelandic fjords.For most of the Viking Age, Vikings were already successful traders, dealing in foodstuffs, timber, furs, falcons and slaves all across the North Atlantic, settling into lives as merchants and craftsmen in thriving towns such as Bergen and Trondheim.
