Craig Newmark, the founder of Craigslist SF in San Francisco, donated $50,000 to help fund scholarships at the University of San Francisco. Students in the USF-in-D.C. program will receive the money, which allows them to experience the unique political and sociocultural culture of Washington.
The university’s Leo T. McCarthy Centre for Public Service and the Common Good sponsors USF in D.C. It is dedicated to inspiring and preparing students for ethical public service careers.
Newmark served nearly a decade as a member of the board and is now an advisor. Th
e McCarthy Center serves San Francisco’s neighborhoods right now and educates futur
e leaders in the area for civic engagement. Newmark made the gift together with Eileen Whelpley, his wife.
In the 2016-17 academic years, up to 10 students could be awarded a $5,000 Newmark scholarship. The craigslist san antonio SF in D.C. program requires that students complete a full-time internship. They will work in government offices and advocacy organizations throughout Washington, DC, such as the White House Office of Public Engagement, House Judiciary Committee, or the Sierra Club.
David Donahue (director of the McCarthy Center) stated that the Newmark Scholarship would help USF students become leaders and change-makers at the local, state and national levels.
Newmark is not only a supporter of non-profit organizations, but the scholarship is just one example. To promote and nurture charitable organizations, he created craigconnects.org. His generosity extends to USF beyond the McCarthy Center. In 2009, he delivered the School of Business and Professional Studies’ commencement address. He also collaborated with faculty and students to offer internet literacy classes and computers for the homeless in San Francisco’s Tenderloin area in 2011.
The University of San Francisco gave Newmark an honorary doctoral award in 2009 for using the internet to promote democracy and improve government.
Craigslist SF was founded by Newmark just blocks from USF. More than 20 years later it still reflects his vision of an information clearinghouse that is free to all users. It is an international site that receives over 50 billion page views per month and has operations in more than 70 countries.
SAN FRANCISCO, CBS SF/BCN — Two more men from San Jose pleaded guilty Tuesday to using an odometer rolling back scheme to defraud people who purchased cars advertised on craigslist colorado springs SF.
According to a news release by Stephanie M. Hinds (Acting United States Attorney), Orkhan Aliyev and Homeland Security Investigations Special Agents in Charge Tatum Kings and Craig D. Fair, Ramil Heydarov pleaded guilty wire fraud conspiracy. This was two weeks after Seymur Khalilov’s guilty plea.
The defendants, Khalilov, Heydarov and Aliyev, admitted in their plea agreements that they conspired to buy high-mileage vehicles and roll back the odometers. They also falsified documentation to make the vehicles seem newer and increase their sales value.
According to prosecutors, their plea agreements contained admissions that they sold at most 78 vehicles with rolled-back odometer readings. This resulted in a loss of more than $550,000 for the victims.
They were required to pay restitution. This amount is between $360,000 and $534072 for Khalilov. The court will decide. Heydarov’s $379,235 and Aliyev’s $196,578.
The men will be sentenced by Susan Illston, a senior U.S. district judge. The conspiracy charge, in addition to restitution and a maximum term of 20 years in prison, carries a $250,000 fine.

This is just one reason why house hunting in San Francisco can be one of the most difficult parts of your life. I am currently in the process to relocate (hmu if your house is large and you love Shih Tzus), and have found that craigslist nh SF has been my new job.
I like everyone else, I want an unusual deal. With the pandemic, there are many to choose from. After three weeks of searching, I feel like I am watching a stock market ticker. I see the same listings get discounted, move-in dates shift back, and buildings seem so desperate for tenants, they offer a $1,000 Amazon gift certificate and a free month. An influx of furnished rooms that are cheap and have mid-century-ish nightstands suggests an influx of Airbnb Lords leaving the STR business. Most importantly, I see scams.
My unscientific count showed that 16 of the 120 shared rooms listed on Craigslist SF’s first page were fraudulent. My results were based on a NYU study that looked at 2 million Craigslist SF ads. I found that 47% of frauds were flagged by the company. Craigslist knoxville SF didn’t respond to multiple emails.
