Has Washington Made a Mistake Dropping Alex Smith?

"For me. Alex smith if you're loading up to try and win the super bowl and the next two years because you've got stafford for these at least two years. I would think that having an experienced. Backup quarterback like alex smith on your roster that would be. That'd be a nice luxury to have. Yeah no for sure. I mean despite worries about being in the same time ever stand those worries. I seen those production meetings with alex smith. He's hot i got it. Yeah yeah he's he's a handsome fellow So lies so. I i'm with you right. I mean if god forbid something were to happen. Stafford's someone capable as him. Yeah a backup quarterback and we've seen a lot more injuries at the quarterback position over the last five to seven years. I i do think it's really important position to have. So i'd or if we're gonna talk football greg then i'll just simply say then since they wanna be boring i'll simply say that that you know I think alex smith is actually still a starter. And i'm not quite sure you will want to be a backup. Because they went five and one with them and that team was trashed. Let me give you the flip side. You ready for this. Which is let's say. Matthew stafford has a couple of bad games. It won't take long for everybody to go. Hey you got alex smith. He had a great career. Give him a shot. I've never heard of crowd. Beg for alex smith before my life. It hasn't happened to him. He's had that he had a really crazy career. You know when he was in san francisco and every year they were changing coaches or coordinators. He had this one game. I'll tell you guys were a divisional. Round game against new orleans. And he ran a bootleg for a touchdown. It took to overtime. And then he threw a touchdown. Pass vernon davis in the this old candlestick community thought. Alex smith was on his way at that point and he's just caught bad luck. It seems throughout his whole career but he's had a great career because he's a winner everywhere he goes. Now he's like the most inspirational guy on the planet. Yeah it really is inspiration for sure what he went through his wild for. It's crazy that he's sixty when i saw it.

Kamala Harris breaks Senate tie to begin COVID-19 relief package debate

"Radio Senate formally moving ahead with the debate on the sweeping stimulus bill, but it was a close one. Michael Morning required a tiebreaker vote yet to have the vice president Kamila Harris, come in, just to get this thing underway to begin the process of debate there in the Senate, so she had to come in breaking 50 50 tired events The bill now the Senate is engaged in what I'll call a marathon effort. To take up President Biden's $1.9 Trillion pandemic relief bill expected to go through the weekend pretty easily here, a zoo chamber is is hearing the debate by hearing debate. I mean, they haven't even gotten to the debate part yet. I mean that they have spent the last 12 hours because Senator Ron Johnson pushed for all 628 pages of the legislation to be read out loud. On the grounds that there should be transparency and what's in it. Now it's not. Every senator has the right on either side of the aisle to make that request and to have things read out. As far as legislation goes, it just doesn't happen very often. And when it does, it's looked at largely as a delay tactic again. In this case, 628 pages of legislation buys I understood it took about 12 hours. It started around 3 20 yesterday afternoon and listen, it wasn't like every member of the Senate was glued to their seats to take notes on how this was all going to go down. In fact, as soon as the reading began, you saw Kamila Harris had to call for an order in the Senate because people were just hopping walking around, leaving. That's just the way this is. It's It's meant to be a delay tactic. But what is clear here is that they finished up that reading portion. It is about to begin the 20 hour debate session Now, that was just a time killer to get to the 20 hour debate session here, Tony, which is going to take place and this is where lawmakers are gonna have 20 hours under the reconciliation rules. To make the argument for what they have seen or heard in this Billa's far as the debate goes, then you're going to have the amendment voting session called Vote a Rama that usually will be about the serious of issues within that piece of legislation, but it could include, um any sort of vote on a contentious subject just literally back to back to back to back votes. That will last probably into the wee hours of the morning. And then when that's done, you have the final vote on this piece of legislation. And if it is approved in the Senate that will get sent back to the house, where the House will have to approve it, And then it could be sent to President Biden's desk for his signature. Well, you know, as well as I do that in this becomes partisan. That all bills are this bill the highway bill or it's the Cove in 19 Bill, or it's the stimulus package recovered 19 bill, but it does have a lot of other things in there. That to me personally Forget Democrat Republican. It's just frustrating that you can't get clean bills straight out just to help the American people with all the things we're gonna be tight. And so I understand. You know Ron Johnson and I'm not a big fan, but I'd like to find out more than lieutenant, I, You know, I don't people understood how bills get passed until Nancy Plus said. We've got to pass the bill, see what's in it, And that was kind of oi opening for a lot of Americans because you know they don't. They don't know the procedures a lot of time, and I think that that's part of the key to this is first of all available online. The bill's piece of legislation itself is they're all senators had a hard copy of it. So the reading it out loud was just moved to this sort of the late actor here, but the end of the day you're right. And with that there have been a lot of changes made they Hold out this massive amount of money to Nancy Pelosi was looking to get for transit system in San Francisco. This bridge to be built between New York and Canada, has been pulled out of the bill. The minimum wage portion of $15 an hour has been pulled out of the bill and also for moderate Democrats who were concerned about this. There's a streamlining here of who's going to get stimulus payments. Now, anybody earning $75,000 or less will still get their $1400 payment. But now there's a phase out faster that goes between 75,000 and $80,000 a year. So if you made $80,000 a year or couples making $1,660,000 a year. You're no longer qualifying for any stimulus, and that will affect around 11.8

Kevin Jones shares how he expanded his sports podcasts network

"Hey kevin thanks for joining us. Simon man pleasure to be here appreciate you having me so before we talk about your podcast at work. Let's talk about what you were doing. Prior to your podcast network you like you got your start in radio right. What didn't you like about that medium. Yeah i kind of had a long winding journey before and got to blue wire tv in washington. Dc at wsh nine Where i actually like a digital blogger. It was bryce harper's rookie year. Rt threes rookie ear there space on the website to create content kind of l. Put my way into media at a tv station. That i turned that opportunity into the cleveland. Crowds dot com. They were growing their media operation. They had Space on espn eight fifty. They had their own radio show in studio in the building. The i broke into radio there. I was on the team side for the browns. You kind of don't have your own voice in. They were losing quite a bit of game so eventually took an opportunity. Came biard in san francisco. The main am station. It was a wonderful experience for the most part. I saw kaepernick kneeling i the warriors when titles. I got to go on the radio every day. I created digital content. But i didn't see a path forward for someone like myself who was twenty seventeen. I was twenty eight years old. I wasn't going to become a radio host. I wasn't gonna be on tv. And i didn't see enough opportunities and saw a lot of really good free agents on twitter and that's kind of how i stumbled upon blue ir but Yeah my background is really creating content for older digital media platforms. And were you like talking head on the radio. Where you're like a court correspondent like bose kind of your role way more correspondent. I came here in san francisco. Be at the warriors games calling in kevin. Jones live from game six of the western conference vitals. Kevin give us the mood. It would be five ten minute had sometimes team not just the update guy so i got to show up my personality. I wrote digital content. I was tweeting all the time And just treating you making better content. For came we are the most of the radio host For my age group which was articles about the warriors tweets about the forty niners. I was giving kmby. Are that brand name digitally. I wasn't getting rewarded for it and that really pushed me to found blue wire. 'cause i thought i was actually giving more wrong to the radio station online and wasn't getting paid properly short. Did you feel like you had a brand like where people obviously wouldn't recognize you on the street Because they only heard your voice today. Would you be like a bar like. Oh i totally know who you are times. Nothing crazy but you know. That's really what they found. Blue stems from dairy. Is that person in san francisco. He had a warriors podcast. I would getting drinks with him. If people were literally coming up to him and dabbling in sam. I love light years. Love what you do on twitter. It was up one of my a ha moments before i came into company. Is that twitter. Influencers in sports are so undervalued beat reporters for newspaper are kind of going out of style. In my opinion it's a it's a necessary way to get facts and information but Radio hosts are being replaced. In my opinion my twitter influencers youtube post snapchat users who have built communities of people. Yeah i think it's fair to say i have by own brandon. We have one hundred podcasters. I know we're going to get to blue i They have their own brands. And i think that's what makes us different. What's the world's going that way man. It's niche you can be this fantasy football funny guy you can be nerdy a little on the browns. Anyone can pick their lane right now. And then from the radio you went to go work at facebook on like content strategy. What kind of content where you strategizing on. Yeah it was on. The business helped team work out of building. Sixty one in menlo park so anytime. There was a new product launch across functional team facebook. There's a product manager. There's a marketing manager. There's someone who also writes help contact when a user gets the pay what is and that was kind of my role. It was definitely a lower tier. Get your foot in the door at facebook. But i learned a lot about scaling and how the task and project management and just it was a even though. They're not in the news in a good way. The culture they're working there was pretty good. People respectful a challenge each other in a polite way. I was coming from media where people throwing dictionaries at each other in the room. People were getting fired left and right backstabbing each other. Facebook actually gave me a little bit of hope as weird as it is saying this big evil giant stealing all the ad revenue move fast and break things but working inside. That building collaborated with people. Who admired and it kind of gave me the wings that eight. I can take some elements of facebook. Mix it into a sports media company

Long-term Unemployment Remains High Despite American Jobs Returning

"Reopen and vaccinations speed up. But there are millions of people who lost their jobs at the beginning of the pandemic and who are still unemployed. NPR's Sam Greenglass reports asked Bud Johnson what he liked about his job driving a transit bus at the University of Delaware, and he uses a single word. Everything. The sights are great. The people I work for the great and it's just a pleasant atmosphere. But he hasn't had that in almost a year. Now. You got laid off from classes, but virtual, I eat two meals a day instead of three. I do go to the pre pantry truth from them. Johnson hasn't been called back yet or been told when, or If that will happen. I am looking forward to coming back. It was a great job in January 4 million people had been unemployed for six months or more. It's what economists call long term unemployment. And we haven't seen levels this high since the great recession that worries economists. Bill Sprigs, he says. Many employers stigmatize people who haven't worked in months. The longer someone's without a job, the harder it is to find a new one. So rather than the typical way you think of a line working you show up at the movie theater. I'm first in line. I've been here I'm next. It works in the opposite. The people who are newly unemployed get the first in line and what's worse, this will likely hit vulnerable workers even harder. Women and people of color have lost the most jobs during the pandemic. They already tend to be paid class and so long term unemployment can scar their earnings permanently. Ah McKenzie study predicted It could also take two years longer for them to recover those jobs. Here's co author Quay Lin Island group, the progress we see on closing the gender gap, even take of it out of the picture. Is so slow. And so then you pause that slow glacial progress and you make negative progress. It was deeply discouraging. There's another worry too. What if certain jobs don't ever come back? How people work and live has been changing dramatically during the pandemic, and that shaken up all kinds of jobs. One of the biggest shifts has been more people working from home. That's had ripple effects for Gloria Espinosa into last April. She cleaned offices in San Francisco. Superbly store. We got a visit from our supervisor, He gathered us all on the parking lot, and he talked to us and tell us that we were gonna be laid off. I was wondering God, why us? It was like receiving a bucket of cold water. That's the way I felt a year later, the employees whose work spaces she wants clean, are still remote. And so Espinosa is still unemployed. She knows there's no guarantee, but she feels confident she will be called back to her old job when offices reopened, be instructed bombs, a necessity to move Chapman on the whole. I think that actually is going to be probably the need of additional workers because we're gonna have to make sure that we can provide that. Extra clean a space that the workers deserve. On the other end of California, Carrie Belisle wonders what her work will look like in the future. She's been a tour guide for 35 years. We are in love, Toya. Has my Minnesota group like he's traveled. Grinding to a halt last spring, Belisle has tried to keep busy, even organizing virtual tours Join me Tuesday at two for my virtual presentation about counselor Deck finally began a new full time job. What's good here at a vaccine? Put it in San Diego. It's just nice to To chat with people and especially people that are getting vaccinated because they're all so happy and excited. While knows this new job won't be permanent, she's hopeful tour Busses will start rolling again. And she can go back to work in the field She's loved for so many years. Sam bring Glass NPR news.

Texas And Mississippi To Lift COVID-19 Mask Mandates And Business Capacity Limits

"Corona virus headlines this week have been about texas and mississippi where republican governors announced the end of mask mandates and said businesses could open at full capacity without any state imposed restrictions. Here's what the president said about that on wednesday. The last thing last thing we need is andrew fall thinking that in the meantime everything's fine. Take off your mask forget it. It still matters. Officials in the white house are worried about highly contagious. Variants spreading before states can vaccinate enough people in mississippi around twenty percent of the adult population has received one shot in texas. It's more like seventeen percent and those are pretty close to the percentage of people vaccinated nationally. Other places are relaxing public. Health measures to more changes are coming for corona virus restrictions across the states massachusetts is lifting restrictions on restaurants theaters can open at half capacity and live music and restaurants for most cities and towns except boston. Michigan is relaxing measures on restaurants and other indoor businesses and restaurants can open to fifty percent capacity. That is up from twenty-five percent capacity and san francisco is reopening museums gyms retail an indoor malls can reopen in san francisco at fifty percent capacity and gyms at ten but those places are relaxing measures incrementally texas is allowing everything to open all at once. Thankfully here in san antonio the vast majority of folks are commonsensical. Care about one another and are going to continue wearing masks in fact. That's the mayor of san antonio ron nuremberg. He told npr this week. That many businesses and school districts in his city won't abandon public health measures even though the state says they can so lifting up the measures that we have available to us to stop the spread to limit the transmission of the virus. Right now is just incredibly foolish and unfortunate mistake that's gonna cost many lives in our communities

Anti-Asian Hate Crimes: Influencers, Activists Are Taking a Stand

"Month in honor of women's history month where featuring conversations with women and nonbinary leaders who are working to address the issues in their communities this week. We're speaking with amanda win. Amanda is the ceo and founder of rise a millennial driven social change incubator for citizen lawmaking because of her work passing legislation for sexual assault survivors. She was nominated for two thousand nine hundred nine nobel peace prize more recently amended has been working to mobilize a nationwide response to the surging attacks on asian americans. Since the beginning of the pandemic asian americans across the country have reported being targeted in three thousand hate incidents according to nypd data anti asian american hate crimes are up nineteen hundred percent in the last year and just weeks ago and eighty four year old. Thai american man was murdered in san francisco. A ninety one year old man was shoved to the ground and oakland's chinatown a sixty four year. Old vietnamese woman was assaulted in san jose and a filipino. American men was slashed in the face on a subway in new york city these assaults are happening during a pandemic where asian americans have disproportionately lost their jobs or had their businesses boycotted response to the recent attacks and the relative silence of bean stream media. Amanda posted a now viral video on instagram naming. The attacks and calling for media attention and public action. Amanda is here today to talk about this wave of violence. And what she's doing about it. Amanda thank you so much for joining us today. You for having me. I want to start with this viral video that you posted on february fifth. What led you to make that video saw. These videos of people being horrifically attacked in my community. I didn't see the mainstream media covering adding see anyone else talking about it. And so i thought to myself if no one's going to talk about it i'm going to use my voice and i'm gonna use my platform and ask people to help me get the word out and over night. Millions of people responded to it so three million people viewed it overnight and then in the following eleven point four million posts went up on tiktok response to it the next business day. The white house press corps asked the president if he has seen the video. Were you surprised by the reaction or were you like. No this makes total sense because nobody else is talking about this. I honestly was really surprised because this isn't the first time i talked about this issue before about race. General and every time that i had posted about race i have lost followers so when i turn on my camera that day to report that video i thought that i was going to lose more followers and i told myself you know it doesn't matter i am going to do this because it's the right thing to do and because people are literally dying to be heard right now. I want to talk to the larger race dynamics of these attacks but actually i wanted to ask why these attacks may be personal to you. You identify as asian american and have talked about your family's immigration story. And i was wondering if you might share some of that story and tell us a little bit about how it is affected your experience of these attacks and your response to them. Yeah of course. I'm so glad you asked that question because so many of these interviews. I've been doing of just been focused on the world. Terrible parts of it. I'm so proud to be hyphenated america and my experience it's been asian-american be means merican and my parents are from vietnam. They went into death to seek life and to reach these shores where they thought that they would find freedom in freedom for us has not only been you know the freedom to exist that persecution it also is the rest of the things that is afforded to us constitution including the right to petition the government and for me at least it's not only a privilege but our responsibility to keep pushing our country to be a more perfect union for me growing up as an asian american. I grew up in corona california. Where darn actually many asian-americans. I remember being one of the very few in elementary school middle school and even still in high school and comes with experience when you are really a minority and you look around and no one looks like you eat the same food that you do and then you grow up and then you see that all the things that you were made fun of for all of us and become really trendy when the communities appropriate at so. That's part of the immigrant. Unfortunate part of the asian american experience. Of course there's this perpetual foreigner stereotype. I think every single asian american has been asked the question. Where you from no really. Where are you from. And while that is and could sound like an innocent question at the heart of it at the root of a is idea that you don't belong and when you keep insinuating perpetuating this idea of uttering a whole group of people what you have are consequences that have resulted in. Lives being lost. Did you experience or did your family experience racism directly in the community or was it this. Pervasive or in addition is pervasive feeling around belonging. I mean it certainly is anxiety about being killed on the street. These attacks have happened. Have been two people doing everyday. Things like walking on the street or going grocery shopping. They one of the things that really stuck with me. In a scarring way was of twenty twenty. A man stabbed family in that stabbing. He stabbed two year old and a six year old because he thought that they were chinese burmese. And he on the record said that he thought they were spreading cova. So you know there's been a threat of people saying well. How do you know if these are really hate crimes. not only. are these con camera. They're also being fully admitted to buy the perpetrators

"Mark thanks for joining us today. As a way of getting started gives a little. Bit of background on yourself eight brian. Thanks for having me on the program background. I love talking about myself. So you might have to cut me off here I am currently the chief revenue officer very silicon valley like term for a a data company called h. g. data. I live in the san francisco bay area. And i come down to beautiful santa barbara For a couple of days a week which is where we're located and as far as being in sales. What's what's you specialty in. Well there there. Two things that i that i spent with their two type of companies that i've spent most of my career with here for the last decade more turnaround situations where i've been brought into tech companies. That have stalled. Started to flail little bit and on the guy that Gets out the shock. shock pads and tries to rejuvenate an entity. And those are those are fun when when you can do them well and then i've also recently gotten a bit addicted to pre revenue tech startups. These are two or three guys sitting in a basement with a whiteboard. They often don't even have product built yet. They've got an idea they want to disrupt the market. And i'm brought in as the go to market guy like let's figure out what we can monetize how to do it. And then let's get after it get some revenue in the door go gets around funding and then hopefully get it to to be erected or see. Let's let's start with the turnaround. Because that's kind of what i've been dragged into for the last five years. What's your approach on the turnaround. So you going into a place there. Stalled at I don't know what your space made. Five ten million dollars. The investors are anxious. They can't raise another round. What's your approach. Well i think there's there's two frames that i typically look at in one one. I usually do pre engagement to to determine if i'm going to get get involved. Which is what's the external market conditions. you know. I have been lucky enough to work in spaces that are growing so that is just tech in general but more specifically the last couple of years has been serum extended. I did do a stint in healthcare it. That was tacked. But i probably miss read. What's happening with healthcare from the outside. That looks very appealing but internally not so much so the first is the external environment is this arena where entrenched players are have gotten a little bit lazy and buying cycles are such that that new entrance can break in in make a difference so that's the external environment and based on what i've said i've generally focused on environments where i think that they are right once in turtle is often find that that it's just business one one stuff and i have been around long enough you know. I got out of college in ninety one. Next week is my forty th birthday and so i've i've seen business cycles and i been in the bay area over over twenty years so i certainly have seen hype curbs in bubbles and bus and i think that has allowed me to go in and call. I don't know if i if i gave you the longer. Version that if you if you'd have to bleep it. Pc see i've seen when folks are deluding themselves when companies are deluding themselves on either their product market fit or their go to market strategy or the original vision their differentiation of strategy disagreements between senior staff or investors board and staff and usually between those those bullets i just listed. There's two or three major disconnects that when you're living and breathing a startup you just lose perspective and by being the new guy on the block. I can actually call out those things relatively quickly. I'm also an east coast guy so even been california now since ninety three. I tend to be very frank and direct And i think that that candidness allows people to to call out the elephant in the room. That people have been avoiding for some time. I don't know if

One Medical's Coronavirus Vaccine Practices Spark Congressional Investigation

"Are investigating a major healthcare provider that led people jumped the line to get covid nineteen vaccines. They're following up on an npr investigation of one medical documents. Show that company administered vaccines to ineligible patients. Some of whom had connections with company leadership. Npr investigative correspondent. Tim mack joins us now. Tim good morning. Good morning what lawmakers want to know. So basically this is a subcommittee. That's led by congressman. Jim clyburn this is the house. Select subcommittee on the coronavirus crisis. And what they're really looking for is evidence that the company intentionally distributed vaccines to ineligible patients across multiple states which is incidentally one of the conclusions. Npr investigation published about a week ago. One of the committee's concerns is that there should be an equitable distribution of vaccines one that prioritizes those most at risk in society rather than the wealthy or well-connected and so the committee is giving one medical two weeks to provide documents about their vaccination practices. One medical of course is a primary healthcare provider that is publicly traded and valued in the billions of dollars. It's business model is to provide tech driven primary health care for members who usually pay about the two hundred dollars a year in. Okay so you you pay this fee. You can go to the doctor when you need a checkup or whatever they were also helping to get vaccines out there. But now here they are giving the vaccines to the wrong people. What does that mean for. Local health departments that were using one medical as a distribution source our distribution channel right so we reached out to every local jurisdiction where one medical best business. We found that eat. Local jurisdictions have cut the company off from vaccine. Allocations are not planning to work with them again in the future. For example san francisco county made the unusual move of not only halting apply vaccine so the company but also demanding one thousand six hundred and twenty doses back in san mateo county said it had done an investigation and found at one medical had vaccinated seventy individuals who are eligible to be vaccinated at that time it to stopped the allocation vaccines to the company. So those are just a couple of examples.

A woman that in the early sixties you can just imagine bought three houses up there one. She sold early and the other two grandkids and it was a multiple generations living in the home so a african american mother her daughter and then their two grandchildren and then sold simply because for what they could get. Think we sold for nine hundred something or one one somewhere around there with what they got. They were able to go out into the suburbs. I think sacramento area fair oaks and buy a home with a swimming pool. And i remember asking them about the black light. And there's always distinctive gentrification being. Somebody's fault but in some cases it simply that the people want the suburban american dream. That's exactly quite data. I lived in the city but not everybody wants that after being generations in francisco as as bad as it is for us to shrink are african-american population. That is a free country. And you know you own the place. Grandma was so smart vitals v. Houses in the kids were able to do that. So that's my closing thought is that it's not always.

So he's definitely involved in the series even if he's not here today some of his stories of how he was exploded from real estate offices that would not hire him in the seventies was regis.

Couldn't african americans couldn't i- discrimination on japanese discrimination chinese. I mean all you have to do is no california history to know what the chinese have been through in california and how far back that goes. So we really are all of us hispanics. We're all in this together and the only way we can get out of this is if we all are together in it any defects everything on which housing but everything policing news. I mean how things are recorded is insidious any has to be rooted out and i would say Dina's absolute right. I would say. I am delighted that the realtors are going to be skipping up and trying to make some changes to the way this is handled in the past. We have seen policy set in place that we're discriminatory on that ushered pour in class people out of neighborhoods without offering them any kind of affordable housing in other sectors of the city that woods exacerbated transit policies because people like to be near transit. Then of course neighborhoods are getting a wealthier and wealthier here. We go again okay. And it's important that you are aware of what has happened to people in the past. And the tap it all people regardless of their race or ethnicity or religion okay. They have been treated in an unseemly manner. And it's important for us to keep in mind that the legal rights just keep you can keep one family in your head. The legal rights won by the berks. Family will be in vain if we don't do something about making things better for everyone and that means we do have to address the structural economic changes that are impacting not only on african americans..

Well actually. i'm probably the only member of the palace that was active in real estate. Way back in the nineteen sixties. I can't believe it's been so long as a young realtor. Right out of college. I was when i was eighteen. The rumford redacted proposition fourteen in the fair housing legislation. That was going on in california. A didn't really sink in with me. Most of the legislation had to the black white issues and mike clientele. Although it was about twenty percent african american it was mostly with the japanese american population. So i really didn't feel. It was affected terribly by the legislation. I think it was the japanese in me that if we were discriminated against if any of my clients were was a we just went on to the next one we just accepted it and As i said it's japanese thing to turn the other cheek so to speak and move on so fair enough and i just heard correctly. Nineteen sixty four. Was your first during the business right. That's correct are and you know you're focused on building occur right. You're not looking out there at housing policy for the most part the ethnic community that you serve wasn't impacted by itself much correct well not specifically by a fourteen in the rumford act and whatnot but four was not to in terms of saying no discrimination. I want to definitely get into that. But i was just curious if like being there at that time you know as an agent. It was impressionable on you. And i can understand why it wasn't well that's true. I mean i was looking at it from outside the problem. Unfortunately there was late.

I let me say thank you for the invitation to speak on the escrow out loud podcast. This is incredibly important. Subject that you're discussing it's great realtors like yourself and dawn. Sanders are taking the time to engage the tough discussions given that we know the people of color experience crushing discrimination that was sanctioned by all levels of government in our country and specifically by many realtor association's as realtors we have unique responsibility to address continuing fair housing issues because there were terrible history of promoting discriminatory housing policy and a discriminating against certain groups particularly african americans. I want to say unequivocally cr. Past policies in support of racist practices including steering redlining in creating covenants prohibit non white people from living in certain communities. Were wrong only must see a are in real talk about this history. Continue disparities incurring discrimination bias. But most importantly we must take the lead and taking action to address any barriers and disparities that remain because of this past as leaders in this industry. We play a powerful role in california housing policy. And getting these policy questions. Right is critical to the health and educational outcomes of all california communities as the state's largest trade association.

"Because i think you know when someone owns something be you black white or whatever you're gonna take a better care of it or more care of it one of the things when you know they had the slums over off of allah meinie. It was because they weren't owned by anyone and will they were owned by the city. Basically and the people who lived on them were tenants and the tenants didn't take care of him so you had an instant slum but if they had sold the properties to individuals. I think that would have taken away. The you know the slum it would people would have pride of ownership and without pride of ownership. They people just kind of tend to let things go. Yeah and it's not just housing right. I mean how do you treat the car you rent versus the car own true. Or is that just me know when you're renting a guy you don't care what you do in it or whatever but when it's your car then you make sure you check the oil tires etcetera etcetera. Keep it clean. you know. It's the same to whole exactly except Have tires those houses do. We're not even getting home Fourteen and our association and led this argument back in the nineteen sixties. That has reverberated to today that you know it wasn't racial discrimination. It was housing freedom. And that's really what as a trade associates we've been fighting for. And i wanna go back to that original argument because it's a false argument and if we look around america has a social contract and the social contract says is an individual willing to give up some of my rights in exchange for some communal rights. That are really good for me. And you and everyone and the comments right. It's a win win. Win win win. And this isn't just abstract right. I mean we think of For granted but the sewer system right. I mean that the social good if we didn't have sewer system and everyone's poo on the street after a week enough. It's even a week right first. Warm day. You a public water system getting clean. Fresh san francisco has the best water in the world. As far as i'm concerned but look streets right that are paved a don't have too many miles lights gas and electric. I mean there are all these common goods that property owners support with property taxes. Not only do those. Common goals was property taxes. We still have to follow the rules for using all of those common goods riots. Not like because we help pay for them. We're somehow exempt from the rules. So there's this historic agreement already. That has a property owner. I'm willing to give up some things in exchange for some other good things and let's get going here because it's a lot of other things right. Property owners are willing to accept property taxes that pay for schools and all of these other common goods. We might not be thrilled about paying them. But we pay them zoning right if you live in a residential house except for the city of houston which i still don't think how zoning it ozone to be residential and that's a police power right like a common law like it's everyone.

"You know what damage done. Well you look at well. Red lining i can over talked to their. I'm sorry was also one of the things where mortgage companies would not lynn in certain areas and though certain areas were usually minority areas. Be bay african american. I think we were negroes back then. Chinese areas. I shouldn't say just chinese. I should just say asian areas. They were also red line. So i think one of the major things that came from this period and probably a little bit is still prevalent. Today is the values of properties in a minority area as opposed to the value of the same house in a white area. I read anywhere from fifty percent. Less value is assigned to the same house in a black neighborhood as it would be assigned in a white neighborhood from fifty percent up to seventy two percent depending on the neighborhoods and Who's doing the actual appraisals and things like that. I think this is probably still a carry over from prop fourteen in san francisco. Most of the neighborhoods. Are you more mixed more diverse. But you still have some neighborhoods that are primarily one race or another and in those neighborhoods. If you had a three bedroom two bath home single at cetera et cetera. It's gonna be less than a home say in merced manner which is primarily a white neighbor. Ed yeah i mean historically in san francisco minority communities were able to find housing south of. What's now interstate. Two eighty and if you look at property values kind of south two eighty versus north two eighty year one hundred percent right. I mean obviously california housing shortage and the incredible. You know up run on. Prices makes san francisco numbers a whole nother story but still to this day historically black neighborhoods life today view. Same house that you can find over in the sunset on west side of town. One of them is ninety five. The other one is a million four. Yes yes and it's interesting. Even on this side of two eighty you know like mercy said heights ingleside terrace. Those were primarily black neighborhoods are african american neighborhoods. Whatever and then you've got Forest hill and I'll what's the neighborhood right across looking. No no the really nice neighborhood. Saint francis would main francis. Would things were like saint francis. Wood was ninety nine point nine percent caucasian one time and that's why ingleside terrace was developed. Because that was developed so that the black people could live there in ingleside terrace and they're really nice homes and ingleside terrace but the price differential is quite a bit difference in. That's like right across a couple of streets. Yeah you know and it really. The only difference is which side of ocean avenue arjan. Yes yes so. I didn't know that was the genesis for those neighborhoods obviously using france as a those neighborhoods had racially restrictive covenants. But i didn't know that was kind of the response. And yeah i mean even in san francisco. It was very much the law of the land. The absolutely like Willie mays i believe tried to buy a house in forest hill s. I think still. There's the stereotype that black people bring the values down in white neighborhoods. So if you move if a black person moves into white neighborhood. The whole neighborhood value is going to decrease. I think that's one of the reasons. I spend so much time working on my yard at my house and everything because i don't want to bring the values down in the neighborhood. It's funny in a way..

With every ounce of strength wilson said we contend that all americans should have their right to refuse to rent lease or sell to anyone and for any reason the law takes away part of his right to decide for himself period. End quote so on the one hand on we have housing freedom. Kind of reminds me of the mask argument housing freedom on one side. We will have no forced housing bills and then on the other side. We had folks like our governor pat brown. And what was the other argument. Well i think. Pat brown's argument was this was gonna make california look more like mississippi or the southern states who were absolutely discriminating and causing. You know racial bigotry off thing. That was governor brown's position on it. Yeah and governor brown the democratic governor of the crime really campaigned hard against prop fourteen. If you go back and you look at his speeches. He was in no way subtle about his disdain and anger about prop fourteen. But as you mentioned you know over a million californians qualified to get it on the signed the vision to qualify to get on the ballot. More than double what they need. So how did how did the campaign for for pro fourteen. Go down well. It was approved by every county in california except mode county in modo county. It was defeated by only eighteen votes. I don't even know her. I don't either but the whole sting california did support proposition. Fourteen county by county every los angeles county County and city of san francisco supported. It was at at sixty five percent to thirty five percent at was not even close no so november nineteen sixty four sixty five to thirty five prop fourteen passes and the california real estate association feels that has one housing freedom and most other folks would look at it and saying we just wrote discrimination directly into the state is the end of the story of course not what comes next on well just as a couple of interesting things that i picked up looking at was in east palo alto in nineteen fifty four. A white family sold their home to a black family and this california real estate association went nets they actually had burglaries to scare. The white homeowners out of that area so they could resell the properties. This i think was kind of the start of block breaking. I think it's called. Don't blockbuster athlete blockbusting work breaking horrible behavior. Absolutely and this is you remember. I don't know if you recall east palo alto in late. Nineteen hundreds was practically all black because the white homeowners left and then the california realtors ended up selling those homes to black.

In the nineteen sixty four state ballot proposition that was sponsored by the california estate association and that is an organization. That's now known as the elephants Association of realtors. And that's an organization to which i belong. I actually served on order directors for several years as a director. now and are you still remembered on. i'm not a member but what i was a member.

We need to back up just a little bit further and that takes us to the rumford act the rumford fair housing act that was passed in nineteen three and they're almost begins our story but gone we start us off by giving our listeners. A reminder about what the state of residential housing was around nineteen sixty three. Well you know we can go back a little bit. Further matt to Nineteen forty eight.

"So what are you advising clients other than to hire you. First of all statistically as a february twenty twenty the city but geneticist stated that there were between two thousand twenty seven hundred housing units in the city being used for ilo. So if you soon that be correct the approval of a thousand will basically konin half or more the existing number of Of of rentals three days to a year that exist today as for what. I'm advising clients. I'm compelled by the ethical rules of the state bar to advise clients to follow the law and not to avoid the law. And that is my advice. But i will tell you that a lot of my clients perhaps majority may may choose not to registered and may continue on Because the limit of one thousand is problematic because one can get caught up in in the bureaucracy if the number of units is approaching one thousand. The thousand cap is not well will will Well known at the moment You know there could be a lot of problems. Also there's a big concern. Some of us have about having roommates and having relatives. What does the say about whether or not you can rent short term to a relative while. You're there or to france in a lot of roommates situations. A lot of my clients will wonder about that. And all i can tell them is that it's a little bit unknown. Because the ordinance prohibits quote non ten uses. Which is quote win. A landlord is allowing the unit to be occupied by a person or entity who is not a tenant unquote and there were ten is defined in our rent ordinance to given the broad definition of rental units in our rent ordinance this would appear to disallow us of a dwelling by property owners family member or roommates in less the unit was registered as an aloe now. Did the board of supervisors in ten that. I rather doubt it. But the way they've written the law. When can never be sure. And i think i would be getting calls on that subject matter. I think the the example you just gave there is a very good real world example of where high-level city housing policy about making housing available for long term residents Intersex and comes right up against the traditional argument of as a private property owner. This is my private property. I have a bundle of rights that go with a a new cannot take those rights away unnecessarily or unreasonably which means anytime we have a housing law in san francisco. We have the result of a lawsuit about policy versus property owner rights. Do you see this headed for litigation will matt. I think it's a lie. ends up. been litigation really depends on whether the largest housing trade associations in the city find this to be a great problem for their members. There's a small property owners of san francisco. There's the coalition for better housing representing large apartment building owners and The san francisco apartment association there are about two thousand two twenty seven hundred Aloes the city. They're not called Been around forever. Question is are. Are those hours active in those trade associations. How active are they do. They represent a lot of the members of those associations. I don't know. But if any of those associations find their a large portion of their membership affected they have every incentive to try to court to overturn this. I don't know whether the court will overturn it. I can tell you. There's a lot of uncertainty and lack of definitions in the ordinance that perhaps only a court ornamental. The law can correct such as whether your roommates who ran for thirty two to thirty days to twelve months or your family members Cause you to be in violation of law As for whether or not the log. Self violates the bundle of property rights that are constitutionally protected. I think it'll take further analysis by litigation attorneys to determine that But this is another example of how the board of supervisors goes far in trying to regulate the market and sometimes a misses the mark over oversteps Increase laws it. Hard to enforce. I think that this is one of the most complex laws that relate real estate in the city along with cuba in rent control. Laws and their interaction will be the subject governor. Great deal of discussion among us real estate attorneys next years so That's the best. I can answer your question. Yeah no that's a great answer and a two probably unfair question so the property owner. What's kind of the most important takeaway. That i should take away from listening to those or. Are there any really important points about this. That i haven't asked you about yet that you wanted to mention. You haven't asked about what areas the city are considered areas of rapid gentrification from which these eiloz will be discourage If you want me to list a few i can do that. i think we talked about how of a there'll be a problem in determining when the magic number one thousand Magic number one thousand eiloz in existence is raised.

"Dedicated to what a has now become term the intimate intermediate length occupancy. So what does this law do. Then what would this law means. Is that by. June of twenty twenty two if an owner of a building has not successfully obtained the permit to have an ir low unit. The low use must end. Now the question is is the city gonna about audit all buildings. Make sure it's ended for those buildings who have not gotten approvals for their eiloz. The answer is no the planning department doesn't have an enforcement staff as big as it needs. The board of supervisors is not funding. So the planning department will act on a complaint basis which is actually the way most notices violation are generated. It comes from complaints. Made by neighbors. Former tenants or competitor's Their fines for having an iro utah after june. Twenty twenty two and that's effectively works. In the meantime unit can apply be eiloz By filing a building permit or alteration permit to the building department which should be routed to the planning department in the permit will simply say that we seek approval for short term intermediate occupancy unit and the amount of construction can be listed as a dollar the permits issue in simply changes the us from a market rate dwelling unit to aloe. That's essentially the application so intrusive francisco fashion. You go to the building department to apply for the planning commission permit right So if you've applied for this permit and it's granted. Does that mean that you could no longer rent that unit. As just a market rate. Long term rental does allow a unit to do that or does it restricted unit to only that good question. The law says that. Tom you can Go back to offering the unit for more than one year without us losing the right to thereafter change it back to a rental of thirty days to one year you can go back and forth the only time when you lose your right to use it for intermediate length rentals if is if three years have gone by and you haven't one trend to the unit as an aloe sh but as long as you You you keep you. You rented on ilo use once every three years. You don't abandon it. And you can go back and forth between being a non aloe allow an ilo. Gotcha so for folks in san francisco that wanted to short-term kind of allah airbnb rentals. The city is created the short term rental registry that has a very specific process reporting requirements. And then you know. There are other laws that affect property using san francisco. That don't have nearly that level of upfront reporting and auditing and it sounds like the enforcement of the i. alot is more like the second and not so much like the creation of another short term in this case intermediate term length rental registry. That's correct matt While the planning department we'll keep a registry Of what size buildings have what number of iowa's the city is not hiring new staff as they did for the airbnb short term rentals to applications review. Them question them and then register them. There was funding for that on the airbnb. Laws it's called had the funding to create a staff to go through the elaborate process of reviewing accepting applications. In the case of the iro law. It will be much simpler when just files in alteration permit indicating a change of use of the unit to an ilo gets reviewed by planning in planning basically just registered in their In in their files so that it can keep track of several things including weather. At the time you apply. There is already been in approval of one thousand of such units in the city. And i'm afraid to ask this question. I'm but once we've counted up to the thousand Ilo units that the city will now allow. What's the process for. Actually taking something off of that list since. We don't have proactive in enforcement. How do you actually is. Is there a process to figure out. If you know a thousand are actually still in use or is that just kind of. We'll see how this goes. I think i would put that in the category. We'll see how this goes because there's nothing in the ordinance telling the planning department Howard should count whether or not a particular kind time. I should say whether particular time when thousand eiloz exists. For example people may choose to take an ilo rented for more than a year while the question is the inform the planning department of that and does the thousand seventy become nine hundred ninety nine when that occurs. These are interesting questions and none of that has been resolved. So i guess if i'm a property you know if we're looking at this and we're thinking you know if you're looking at these unit restrictions one to three units none forty you forty nine units less than two point five of them ten plus twenty percent. Max it's very much about preserving kind of existing housing stock End my question. Like what if i've got a ten plus unit building right now that i've been completely using intermediate length occupancy. Just you know. I didn't do a asandra dramatic thing. It's just how happened over. The years is are these situations grandfather. Dan or none of that allowed. Come twenty twenty two. That's a good question. None of these are grandfathered in for example if if in a building owner wants to continue his eye lows in building of more than ten after the date of june twenty twenty he cannot in less summer all of those islands have received an alteration permit to have their us officially changed to i allow before june. Twenty twenty so on the one hand. I'm kind of hearing that. There's a reasonable amount but not a massive amount has ever been on the radar to upset the housing policy makers of san francisco. But because of you know kind of what happened with saunder all of this is is now under the microscope. And i guess if i'm listening to this i'm putting my selfish news. A property owner. You know it sounds like it might be a catch twenty two in terms of registering and kind of inadvertently getting stuck in the byzantine city bureaucracy. And at the same time. I don't wanna not comply with the law..

"Attorney for thirty six years and regularly writes and lectures on local real estate laws and issues including condominium law and advises his clients on land development and real estate transactions throughout the bay area. So welcome to the show mr gladstone. Thank you matt. Happy near happy new year's well here's looking at twenty twenty one So you have been doing san francisco real estate in real estate law for a very long time and we are so fortunate to have you on the air today to speak with us about a very specific law which is intermediate occupancy law. So maybe before we even get started about how this came to be what isn't intermediate occupancy law thanks man it's actually called intermediate length occupancy law and all grieve as i l o. That's what the industry calls it and what it says. Is that starting a couple years. Only a thousand unison. The city will be allowed to be rented between thirty days in one year and it affects for kinds of buildings First of all buildings that one to three units which can't have these at all if they have them today they have to stop. Then in effect seed billings afford to nine units in the Aloes are loud there as long as the number of the building does not exceed twenty five percent of the units in the building. Then there's a category of buildings ten some more and i a- lows are only allowed there if the planet commission gives approval and the planning commission has a lot of discretion in the planning commission to say yes. Ask you to show the following three or four things first of all that at the time you seek approval from the commission. There's only a thousand or less units better. I at that moment you'll have show that only twenty percent of the units in your building will be you have to show that at least two thirds of all at the time our downtown and you have to show that less than one third of the is at the time we seek permission. Aren geographic areas of displacement. And they're they're given The locations of those areas of displacement in recent years are indicated we can go into which areas they are later but that is essentially the law and one more thing if you ever building than has notice of violation against it for any reason your disqualified from being off from having i lows in your building and you were also mentioning. There's the fourth category of building while the fourth is a building that has vs. Okay so i. Re- categories are distinguished by the number of units and the fourth category is building a with overseas notices of violation. Which case you have no chance of having l. alot ellos and does the date of construction of the building matter at all or is it everything that's ever been built in san francisco. It's everything that ever has been built. There's one rule based on a day. Any buildings built after june. Twenty or june. Fifteenth of twenty twenty cannot have eiloz at all so from here on new. Buildings cannot have iowa's gotcha and in terms of unit counting may. Maybe the hasn't been litigated yet. Are unwarranted units units for the purposes of ilocos. It's a good question. The ordinance does not say that but other ordinances in the city for example. The ordinance called copa which gives nonprofits the right to By building three or more units in that rule a non-legal unit doesn't count toward being one of three units for the purpose of deciding whether the building is three or more units and thus subject to copa which gives the nonprofits the right to offer to purchase prior to the in general. Yes so hopefully. It'll be interpreted that way on this law. I would hope so if you're listening to this. You're like wow. This sounds like a really complicated law. how this law come to be. Why do we need it. Or why did i not that you can speak for the board of supervisors but what can you tell us about how it kind of came to be in the problem that it's tempting to solve sure we'll for many years. Progressives in the city have been considering going to the board of supervisors to regulate the number furnish rentals that are short term with the idea that those units are taking away housing from those who have a housing needing can't afford market rate housing but what really was distracted for the camel's back was the project known as twenty one hundred market street in which the developer bryan spears. Put up a. I think about sixty units and without telling the city he was doing so he mastered least all rental units to accompany called saunder and that of course was a good deal for him because it means he never had to worry about vacancies. That saunder would take the risks. There were vacancies. He'd get one steady check from saunder. Every month and people noticed it. Solder was moving in furnishings. And obviously there were all of them. We're going to be furnished. Units with the exception of eight units that are below market. Which saunder did not lease so city planning for was made aware of it in the board supervisors were made aware of it end a felt. This wasn't the intent of the planning commission improving in approving the project however looking back to approval there was no Provision that this could not happen in fact the laws did not prevent this from happening so while many intended to half saunder its use of the building that way The c- could do nothing about it. saunder end. Mr brian spirit had found a loophole. It was perfectly legal and the board of supervisors decided. We should do something about this by creating some legislation and that's how it came about met so that is a conflict complicated story And actually you know to your point. intermediate length occupancy law rentals have been around in the city for a while like sander is not the first company and bryan. Spears is not the first developer but what was very different as you pointed out was this was brand new building and it was one.

I don't think my grandfather would have been purist about. It can be perfectly happy to see. The homes updated appropriately to modern tastes and standards.

What do you think that the biggest misunderstanding about your grandfather justify claros. I think by far is the common one that i raised your case for some people. A lot of people think my grandfather was architect which was not the case. He's a builder but really as she was very much. Invested in the design of his holes he was that was the driving force of what he was doing you know. He hired very skilled architects to do the work for him. A lot of builders. The architecture is not that so important. It's just something to get. I mean they're not even necessarily hiring name architects to do the work. They're just just somebody to get the stuff. Don get it sold and that's it not. My grandfather was very much. I mean he could've made more money and in much more successful if he hadn't been so invested in the design of this particular style of who the whole genesis light combs came about because of my grandfather. Having lived for a couple of years in a frank lloyd wright house in hillsboro then he wanted to get after he had moved out of that he wanted to try to get modern hospital for himself that somewhat along the lines of the one who lived in subsequently discovered. He couldn't do it because it was too expensive for him. But then the architect robert anchin who had hired to do the plans for that. That house or at bill came to him with grandfather had started in the building. Business just building routine tract homes not be now cyber homes anchin came to him with some designs for modern style. Tract homes and the rest is history. That is such a a great story.

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Warriors must pay forty million dollars in Reno debt to Oakland. Alameda County judge rules by Megan Cassidy from sports the Golden State Warriors must pay off the estimated forty million dollars in remaining debt incurred by Oakland and Alameda County for renovations to oracle arena. And arbitrator has ruled a nineteen ninety six demolition and redesign of the arena's interior cost about one hundred fifty million dollars to be paid over a thirty year period since then the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum authority has collected an annual payment from the basketball team of seven point four million dollars to help pay off the debt, but warriors are departing for San Francisco in twenty nineteen and team leaders had planned to stop making payments at that time attorneys for the city and county argued the NBA champions were trying to scuttle the remaining debt and both sides agreed to let an arbitrator make the final call. We are pleased by today's ruling and believe that it's the warriors not the Oakland and Alameda County taxpayers who should repay this debt. Call ASEAN authority chair and Alameda County. Supervisor Nate Miley said in a statement, we issued these bonds in nineteen ninety six in collaboration with the team and with an agreement in place. We've simply asked the warriors to honor their agreement. The disputes came down to the interpretation of nineteen ninety six contract signed by the warriors and the Coliseum authority. The joint powers entity created to finance and manage the sports complex. That's also home to the as and raiders essentially, the disagreement was over the side's interpretation of the word terminates the paragraph at issue says that if the warriors terminate the agreement prior to twenty twenty seven they are obligated to pay the outstanding project that an court filing attorneys hired by the team said that Klaus would apply only if the warriors were actually terminating the contract, rather they said they are allowing the agreement to expire in June twenty nine. Eighteen as they depart for San Francisco judge Rebecca westerfield, the arbitrator in the case noted in her ruling that warriors president Rick welts testified that the team's decision to leave. The arena was a deliberate choice. This action by the warriors deliberately electing not to exercise an option and thus bringing the license agreement to an end can be construed as a termination for any reason westerfield wrote and her Thursday ruling attorneys for the warriors and the Coliseum authority were made aware of the decision Monday. This was an after the fact attempt by the warriors to rewrite the party's deal, and it would have left the people of Oakland. Alameda County holding the bag Daniel pursell and attorney for the city and county said in a statement warrior spokeswoman Lisa Goodwin said the team obviously disagreed with the arbitrators interpretation of the license agreement. Of course, we are reviewing our options at this time. She said in a statement. But as we've always said, we will fulfil any debt obligations that we owe.
