In Mountain View, over 10,000 Google employees are now fed in private cafeterias serving organic food throughout the North Bayshore area north of Highway 101, like the one that recently opened at 1015 Joaquin Road, around the corner from the restaurants. See EATERIES, page 10 Stanford treating SFO plane crash victims S tanford Medical Center evaluated 55 patients from the crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 on July 6 and admitted 18 — 11 to Stanford Hospital and seven to Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, according to spokesman James Larkin. One at Stanford Hospital remained in critical condition as of Tuesday morning, July 9, according to spokesman James Larkin. Four patients remain at Stanford Hospital with one listed in critical but stable condition, one listed in fair condition, and two in good condition, Larkin said. Two patients were discharged from Stanford Hospital Monday afternoon. All of the patients admitted to Packard Children’s were discharged Sunday evening.

While many of their peers are whiling away the hours swimming and playing INSIDE video games, about 50 incoming eighth-graders are spending the first half of the day at Monta Loma Elementary School crunching math problems. It’s about 9:45 a.m. on July 9 and about 25 of the students are listening as Graham Middle MAGALI GAUTHIER Small restaurants in North Bayshore are going out of business, thanks to increasing competition from Google cafeterias. had all been listed in good condition when they were admitted on Saturday, he said. The vast majority of patients came by ambulance, although some were flown in by U.S. Coast Guard helicopter, said Dr. David Spain, director of the hospital’s trauma center. The injuries ranged from internal bleeding to numerous fractures, including several spinal fractures and blunt force injuries, Spain said. Stanford is one of nine Bay Area hospitals to receive patients from the crash, which killed two and injured 182 others. The two killed were 16-year-old Chinese girls, the airline has confirmed. The San Mateo County Coroner’s office is investigating the cause of death, including the possibility that one of the victims was struck and killed by a first responder’s vehicle. The teenagers have been identified as Ye Meng Yuan and Wang Lin Jia, according to a statement from Asiana Airlines. Both were students and Chinese nationals, according to airline officials. In the statement, Asiana rep- School algebra teacher Jennifer Lewis discusses how to figure out the common denominator of a fraction. This is the Stepping up to Algebra summer camp — a program designed to help students who have fallen behind get back on track and to ensure that those middle-schoolers who have been keeping up with their studies hit the ground running in the coming year. “The purpose of the program is to prepare students for algebra who otherwise may not have been on that algebra track,” says Craig Goldman, superintendent of the Mountain View Whisman School District. Organized by the Silicon Valley Educational Foundation, the Stepping up to Algebra program is in its sixth summer across Santa Clara County. This is the first year the program has been implemented in the Mountain View Whisman School District, Goldman says, and it’s been going well. “The kids seem very interested and engaged,” Goldman says after the kids break for recess. He explains that the children took a test, at the beginning of the program to gauge their understand- VIEWPOINT 15 | GOINGS ON 20 | MARKETPLACE 21 | REAL ESTATE 23 resentatives said the company offers its “deepest apologies and condolences.” Dr. Eric Weiss, Stanford’s director of emergency medicine, said that the hospital activated its emergency management plan immediately after being notified of the crash and within 30 minutes was able to mobilize more than 150 health care staff including doctors, nurses and other support staff. In particular, the hospital activated seven trauma teams See SFO CRASH, page 8 ing of the concepts. There will be a test at the end of the week to see how much the children have learned. “We’re looking forward to seeing the final assessment results. Based on what we’ve seen so far, we expect that the results will be favorable.” It’s easy to see why his hopes are high. Even though it is the final week of the program, and even though several other summer camp programs are going on around the Monta Loma campus, all the children are focused on Lewis, who uses an See MATH CAMP, page 12
