"Entrepreneur platform on the planet. Welcome to business rock stars. I am joined now by the co founders of Party Act We've got Will Kennedy and Ready Can I Thank you so much for chatting with me today? Thank you for having me So if you could first tell me what is part Deac? So part Jack joins the whole nightlife community in one place. So for a user or that friend that knows exactly where to go. The best events that's drink specials, all that for venues where direct channel to promote directly to those customers and then for promoters. We're the best tool to build your network. Awesome. So how did you guys come up with the idea? So we started it Where? Actually College buddies, the University of Connecticut. That's where we met. Um, basically one day we wanted to go out. The thing about in Connecticut at Yukon. It's always cold. It's not like l A right. So, um, when you want to go out, you need to know. You know, that is gonna be a good place, because if not, you're going to spend the time getting ready and going through the rain and snow to get the bar. So this is basically what happened. We, um we wanted to go out one day and, you know, we went all the way out to the bar and was completely dead. And we had to walk all the way back in the rain and it was cold and we're we said, Hey, this is gonna be a better way to to do this to know what's going on around you without having to go all the way to the bar. So what is that better way that you've created for your users take me through kind of all the things that they get to explore and no, before they commit to where they're going out for the night. Sure, So by bringing everyone together on one platform, right, we connect everyone in a unique way. So you log onto the app. You not only see all the places around you we see the events, um, any exclusive drink specials They got going on where your friends are going. You can invite friends so forth. So we basically give users one environment to plan their night together, and not only that you can see exactly how the scene is going to be before you go. So instead of driving around going from bar to bar going home disappointed. You're going to know what you're going into and have a great time. No matter what so great idea, But obviously idea is just the 1st 1st part of being an entrepreneur is all in the execution. And you guys decided to execute this right out of college and you had to boot. Strap it. So take me back to that time. What was that? Like when you had the idea and you end we're going to make this happen. What were some of those next steps you took? Um, So I think you know, with us, the thing being, you know, we know we knew we wanted to create an app, but none of us were technical co founders. So right off the bat. We knew that was gonna be a challenge. But that wasn't something that we thought we couldn't overcome. And I think that's what a lot of entrepreneurs you know they might stop there, they might say. You know, Uh, you know I can't do it because I don't know the code. But I think now and not today's society, you can learn everything. You can go on Google. You figure out how to make a pitch check. You can figure out where to find other people. I know how to code and you can really get good things done. So, basically what we did is on, you know, we just moved out, Um, from our houses in Connecticut. We came to L A and just sort of started started working on it and up kind of, you know, every day kept progressing progressing until we started out kind of figuring out what we were doing, going along the way make mistakes, but Eventually got it to place where we knew what we're doing, and we can move forward. Yeah, and obviously so many benefits to being in Los Angeles or the Bay Area because you have a built in tech community and network. But do you think in hindsight that was a crucial step? You know if there's someone watching or listening that does not live in Los Angeles or the Bay Area, do you think? Hey, if you want to make a tech company work, I'd really recommend Do you move to these cities? Yeah, definitely So We started. We got the ball rolling in Connecticut. We soon found while they're a lot of resources there, we weren't exactly an environ environment to grow it right. So we came out here. We slept on air mattresses, ate a lot of ramen noodles right and finally built the dream to the point. We got to support to make a reality. And one thing that's unique about us is when we started this. We were barely the drinking age. Right. So this was a dream. And on top of that, we weren't coming out of different companies. We weren't exactly Well versed in business itself. So we had to learn everything as we went right every facet of the business because when you're an entrepreneur, you have to handle everything. And when you do get to the point where you hire people that helps you so much because then you know exactly how to do it and what to expect of people you hire. So that was probably the biggest learning curve for us and without being in l. A, Um we would have been surrounded by the people to learn from to me to ask questions of pick up a call and the mentors. We have. Investors we have. They're also supportive and also so important to our growth. Not only personally but as a company, right? So tell me about the various hats that you had to wear in the beginning. So when we originally started, um you know, we we needed. We knew we couldn't call that but released needed something to give to somebody that could coach we didn't know how to design everything. So we learned how to Designed the U. S. For apps. We learned how to, um, what sort of back ends were needed? We learned so the marketing aspects pretty much everything creating a pitchbook talk talking to investors. A lot of different like Aspects. A lot of different avenues are you need to master or you need to have a good grasp on to start. Um, and like we'll set it being being the first co founders of a company need to wear all the different hats. You got to be comfortable in all these different atmospheres. You've got to step out of your comfort zone and do something you might not know how to do because nobody else in the company can do it. And, of course, once you get that investment money, that's a game changer because then you can hire a team and they can do all the things that you aren't an expert, and so was that one of the first steps was putting your pitch deck together and going out and trying to get funding. Yeah, It's definitely the most important step and one thing about that is not only The investment help people preparing for the.

"So what do you think is is driving this sort of growing percentage. It sounds like a ticks who are carrying the bacteria that causes Lyme. Yeah, I'm not actually sure that it's a new thing. I think it's just we've recently discovered it. So some areas of California coast they're famous for ticks. So just south of months breathers Garrett had a state park, which is Spanish for Dick. And lots of locals have been contacted me recently to say, Yeah, this is, uh Something they are aware of. That takes out the seasonality in coastal habitats, but we hadn't really examine them for evidence that might carry, um have for a long time. So that was what was surprising was to see that they were actually I'm indeed infected. So then, are you not saying that you are. We're likely to see a growing number of people coming into contact with these coastal takes at that we're discovering the numbers that already existed. Yeah, I think it's more a case of awareness. I think locals have been aware of these populations in coastal habitats, and but it's often the case that if you're joining up for the day from San Francisco And perhaps you're not aware of this being something to take care of, or take precautions for, so I think ticks have been there. I think they've just been more under the radar in terms of disease and I see and one of the things Leah Gerstner that you know is that there are a lot of people who also may not be aware of what to look for. In terms of understanding whether or not they may have been bitten by a tick that is carrying The bacteria that causes Lyme disease First, can you just talk a little bit about your own personal experience? I understand you were diagnosed. How did that come to be? Sure, I was in graduate school at Cornell University in upstate New York, which at that point, where is the Muslim endemic area in the country? But I was from Bay Area and I was pretty unfamiliar with Some of the details around one disease infections that a lot of people, um even in the Northeast, don't know which is that, um, sometimes it takes are as small as a period at the end of a sentence or smallest poppy seed. And can be very difficult to see when they're attached, especially if they're behind your knee or on your scalp and your armpit. Um, I I didn't know that Lyme disease does not always, um, come with a rash. And if it is a rash, it's usually actually not, um what people think of as the stereotypical diagnostic bull's eye rash. It's usually more of a solid red rash if there even is a rash associated with the infection. I also did not know that there were several co infections that can also be transmitted along with Lyme disease, by Tex And Dan Study incorporated some of those other pathogens that ticks can carry at the same time, and some of the texts in Dan Study were actually infected with multiple pathogens at once, So we have you know, in California. We have other infections besides Lyme disease, and we have Things like obesity, which is more of a malaria like illness and other bacteria like brilliant Miyamoto, I, which is sort of newly discovered here. It causes the two point relapsing fever. So I was at Cornell and I had sudden onset cardiac symptoms and, um The cardiologist for the next 10 years. Missed those symptoms as a as a lime card itis, um, picture and then I was camping in Mendes email with my family 10 years later. And came back with the red rash and, um, progressed into having a sort of stiff neck and, um Migrating joint pain and fevers and night sweats and a bunch of more symptoms of Lyme and Bob Asia..

"Welcome back to Forum. I'm Nina Kim. As Californians get ready to go to the beach this summer, there's a new worry to consider ticks that carry Lyme disease, which is a potentially debilitating illness that in its late stages can cause Neurological or cardiac problems. A four year study has found that coastal areas from Mendocino to Monterey are home to these Lyme disease carrying ticks, which were thought to be mostly inland. In this segment, We'll talk about the study and how to protect yourself from tick bites and We're joined by Leah Gertner, Director of education and outreach of the Bay Area line Foundation. Leah Gardner. Thanks so much for talking with us. Thank you so much for having us on there. And also with us is Daniel Sock held research biologists at Colorado State University, Fort Collins, who conducted the four year study that found Ticks in Northern California coastal brushland. Thanks so much for joining us as well, Daniel Thanks, Lena. It's a pleasure to be here. So talk about this four years study looking at the prevalence of disease carrying ticks in California in particular ticks that carry Lyme disease. So you found them among coastal shrubs. Why is this so important? What was surprising about this to you? And it was the first thing to be found surprising was the number of ticks in these coastal habitats. So perhaps this was negligence on our part beforehand, but we've always concentrated on Woodlands in California, and that is definitely an area where chicks are abundant and where they are carrying the Lyme disease bacteria. And this was kind of the first investigation into coastal habitats for us, and then we found ticks in large numbers, and we were surprised to find that they were also carrying wine disease because in those habitats The reservoir we associate with Lindsay's California isn't there and that's the Western grace growth. I see. So can you just explain quickly? How ticks do end up being able to carry the bacteria that can cause Lyme disease? Just to remind our listeners? Yeah, if you're not familiar, and the chicks have three life stages, so there when they hatch from the eggs, they're not infected with the bacterium. You have to feed on animal host is infected with bacteria. So once they have been when they bite as a as an older tech, so they molt from larva to limp to adult and so as a member for an adult, they can transmit the infection, too. And a new animal. Or if you're unlucky to a person and again as you were saying, typically, you think these animals were more in woodland areas..

Sea Level Rise a Major Threat to San Francisco
"All over the bay Area by 2050 In less than 30 years. Projections show floodwaters swamping bridges, infrastructure and entire neighborhoods. KQED science reporter Kevin Starke has been following this story as part of the Pulitzer Centers nationwide. Connected Coastlines Reporting Initiative and Kevin East Palo Alto specifically, is one community really susceptible to sea level rise in the Bay Area. How much of a threat is this? Well, already Half of the city lies in a federal flood zone. It's bound by water on three sides, the Bay and the San Francis Skeeto Creek. And it's located in the South Bay, where tides of the highest during bad storms the city already regularly experience is flooding. The average high tide in the bay is going in one direction. It's up. Scientific projections show up to a couple feet of sea level rise by mid century, and then the rate of rise could dramatically increase beyond that, so this is truly an existential threat for the community and his power out there. Great and this isn't just about sea level rise right? There are larger social forces at play here, too. Absolutely. The community is roughly two thirds Latino, has a sizable population from the Pacific Islands. In fact, we interviewed people who emigrated to East Palo Alto from places like Samoa and Tonga, in part to get away from flooding and climate change on the islands on me to find that it is an issue here along the bay, so the effects of climate change disproportionately impact communities like East Palo Alto. Many people in the community that we spoke with talk about the cost of housing. There's been a lot of pressure. There is Facebook and Google and other big companies have built campuses nearby. Yet East Palo Alto is this

They may not realize that the central valley inside california's responsible for exporting between twenty and thirty percent of the world's food agriculture has been the driving industry here since these cities were born. And think that that really is what people think of. Like heartland america i think of cornfields and buckeyes and i'm talking about grapes and almonds and teaches cows.

"Sitting in krizan. Okay can we back up a little bit though. Like obviously you and i. And most of our crime chugging are really familiar with advancements in dna technology in genealogy and all that stuff but the fingerprints this guy was in prison. I have spiralled. I don't understand. It's my literally even talked to a former detective that i know and i should have been run rights. I i don't know. I think we have a first of all. There hasn't been a lot of information out there on this new development right like this just happened so i haven't gotten the full story. Did they not know that the prints were on the scooter like were they recently found. I mean i would think that that's something they check for way early on a partial that they were able to get a better reading from prince in the eighties. I it's hard for me to believe that the finding the print was new. It's connecting it to him. That i think was new but haven't been able to verify. But when i talk to the detective the problem is i think we have this idea as armchair detectives that there's a national database we have a fingerprint. And we we put it in there. When it gets it gets run against every fingerprint in the world and we find out if anything else connected. It's not like really how it works. It's so messy so there is a national database but it's not connected to any of the local databases and you have to have so many points to be able to submit their otherwise. You're going like hand by hand and even if you could submit it. Someone has to physically. Sunday doesn't just like collect it from a database right. it's so messy. It's incredible when you think about the advancements we've made in technology and science and how solo the criminal justice system is to keep up with it right to adapt to it and adopted as like a basic practice. Yeah how do you reform that. Like i mean. I have like a teeny tiny supercomputer in my pocket. And we don't know that a guy sitting in prison who's had his fingerprints taken thirty two years owner since a year after the abduction alike. The piece that could have been brought to michaela's family. I mean thank god he had been in prison. That whole time mean. That's like i guess. The one good thing is just roaming around but to leave the family with unanswered question again. There's so much. I don't understand about this that i don't know if i'm missing a piece but there's gotta be something we can fix right. It seems like it's own sort of injustice as of twenty twenty one. David mich- is fifty nine years old and remains in a california state prison awaiting trial for the murders of michelle and jennifer. Now as far as i can tell no trial date has actually been set so this is the two thousand eighteen case that he was charged with has even gone to trial for that yet. Right right. is there any trial date for michaela yet. No no trial date yet. Firm akilah either and who knows how covert is going to affect that regardless of how those proceedings play out thankfully it is highly unlikely that he will ever see freedom again. Meanwhile the search from kayla's remains continues. Her mom sharon lives in iowa now where she is currently undergoing treatment for stage four breast cancer. So everyone send your your thoughts and your prayers and your the good vibes. Good vibes to her. Even though michaela's case has been solved. There's no happy ending here. Nothing i can say or do will ever erase the pain of such a terrible loss in the years of not knowing. But i want to leave you with a piece of.

"Now. They wouldn't know for sure that until they got the dna results back. Wesley information is looking at this point. Pretty credible right along with the bones. Searchers find a woman's rang. They find clothes and beer bottles and car parts and shoes and they're also bringing cadaver dogs to try and locate a second well. Which it wesley telling. The truth could have a dozen more body. God yeah according to the mercury news the hayward palese take this pretty cautious approach to all of this. Because obviously there's a ton going on here and as much as they wanna find michaela issues there. They don't want to get in the way of any other investigation. So they keep their focus really narrow and in the whore of all those bones in the well sir cher's find a fragment a fragment that could belong to a child between the ages of five and fourteen years old as the physical searches wind down and dna testing takes over to identify the bodies. Michaela's case turns back to just a waiting game like they've got a see who's out there. In march two victims are named publicly as kimberly. Billy who was nineteen when she vanished eighty four and joann hobson who was sixteen when she disappeared in eighty five so with other families starting to get answers. Police and michaela's mom. Sharon kind of just wait on tender hooks for news and finally in january of two thousand thirteen. We are now twenty five years out from mikhail. Vanishing the heartbreaking truth comes out the fragment that they found does not belong to michaela on her blog. Sharon stated that while she wasn't ruling out the possibility that lowering did snatch michaela back in eighty eight. She thinks it's unlikely that her daughter was a victim of the speed freak killers. She believes michaela was too young compared to their other victims. And that since lauren's dead and west these claims about his involvement can't be verified. It is as she puts it quote on the far back burner as sharon road. Over the years there have been reported sightings of michaela in mexico even the united arab emirates and theories that michaela was a victim of trafficking. Even sharon's got a whole section on her blog called. Who done it or who didn't done it where she goes over. Potential suspects and gives her perspective on each one.

I mean they would mark every anniversary in a different way than the rainbow market did not with ribbons but they would mark it with a relook. Look at the case. And on the thirtieth anniversary of michaela's kidnapping this was two thousand eighteen. They decide to reexamine the whole thing. The evidence possible witnesses the leads all of the departments fingerprint expert gets a full list of every single person of interest and arm with this list. She starts comparing all of these people's prints with ones that were apparently found on the scooter. Michaela had been using that day and remarkably to advancements in technology. She's able to find a match watts. Es according to toepfer gawk roger and holly silverman reporting for c. n. n. The prince on the scooter belonged to a man named david. Mitch and on december twenty second twenty twenty. He's officially charged with the kidnapping and murder of michaela garrett okay so he's being charged in december literally just a few weeks ago but when was he arrested girl he was arrested back in the eighty s. I'm sorry are you telling me that michaela's killer has been in jail pretty much entire time like since. yep yes. that's exactly. What i'm telling you say david. David's been incarcerated since nineteen eighty nine when he was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the stabbing death of a thirty six year. Old woman named bowl at her house in an unincorporated part of hey work now. I wasn't able to dig up much about margaret's murder other than her age and how she died. But i did find that.

Cbs san francisco reported that a young woman in her late teens named michelle. Xavier was found murdered with her best friend. Twenty year old. Jennifer dewey along the side of a road shortly after midnight on february second nineteen eighty six now at the time all police would say was that one of the women had been shot and the others throat was selected and the brutality of the murders really rocked fremont to its core but the case remained unsolved until new advances in dna technology linked.

"Dugard now. This is a pretty popular name but at the time in two thousand nine eighteen years later since she was taken she was found alive. According to robert salonga reporting in the san jose mercury news no other kidnapping victim in modern american. History has been found alive after being missing for that kind of time like again. This is a huge story. One that i'm sure all of our crime junkies super familiar with and as it's exploding in the news it opens up all kinds of new possibilities for other long-term missing kids so when they found jaycees kidnappers phillip and nancy garrido and they arrested them. Police start to wonder if phillip and nancy potentially had other victims. Maybe it's a coincidence. But if you look at pictures of c. As a child next to pictures of michaela there's like major resemblances between them. Like you're gonna send you side by side or two different pictures and you can tell me what you think i mean. Yeah i mean michaela was nine and jaycee was eleven. But they're both sweet looking blonde little girls they have these toothy. Grins just for rake my heart. I can totally see the resemblance between the two of them. And wasn't the abduction ammos similar to like forgive me. It's been a while since. I've read about our case. But i'm pretty sure. Jc was grabbed in broad daylight. Like michaela's to yet she was. Abc seven news reported that philip was actually out of prison on parole and believed to be living in the bay area in eight which is like a pretty strong connection and beyond that. Trina who's again mccullers. best friend. who was with her. When she goes missing comes forward and tells police that she believes philip. Looks like the guy who took michaela and even more than that phillips car at the time looks like the one that the kidnapper was driving and she's so struck by this car that she calls michaela's mom like tell her about it so with this renewed hope that maybe answers are finally on the way hayward police want a massive search operation at philip and nancy's place where jaycee was held looking for any sign that michaela was ever there and after a few days of searching. They think they might have found what they're looking for. Law enforcement find a few bones and they bring in cadaver dogs the next day to sniff near where the bones were found the original searches after jaycees rescue turn up a fragment but now with multiple bones police are even more intent on uncovering the scale of nancy and phillips crimes and seeing if it leads them to any clues about michaela or even anyone else but tests on the bone fragments show that they're animal bones and not human. Okay you said the bone fragment what about the other bones so according to a diesel martinez reporting for cbs. News are human. but they're not michaela's in fact an anthropologist brought in by police believe that they're actually very old bones belonging to native americans. Do not even like not that they're not michaela's and raving another victims. They probably their long long long before burial. ground situation. Exactly so at this point all police can do is watch as arguably the best lead that they ever had in michaela's case just disappears and dries up the interview. Jc and she says that she doesn't believe michaela was ever there so just suddenly is it appeared. This spark of hope is crushed. More time passes more birthdays and holidays and anniversaries. With out michaela or any clue even of what happened to her. After she was taken that is until yet another infamous case intersects with michaela and it offers this strange in early two thousand twelve a convicted murderer on death. Row in san quentin california named wesley. Sherman time one of half of the notorious speed freak killers duo who may have killed more than twenty people in the eighties and nineties. He has a letter to the stockton record newspaper in it he offers to give up more information about where he and his partner this loren herzog buried some of their victims and also announces that lauren is the man responsible for michaela's abduction. What yeah according to chris. David and daddy's reporting in the mercury news. Wesley points to how lawrence family lived nearby. Like this place like a ten minute drive from hayward and he also points to lawrence resemblance to the police sketch from back in eighty eight. And so i kind of took a screenshot of lawrence mugshot lineup side by side with the sketch. And you can tell if you think are similar. I mean like. I said in the first sketch like his face. Kind of long which lawrence mugshot does display that. His skin is definitely better. But you know he's also older. Maybe outgrew with some of those like early twenties skin issues. But since you said wesley's on death row. I'm assume lauren is there too so not. Lauren actually paroled back in two thousand and ten after this whole legal mess with allegations of coercion around. His confessions and his convictions actually get overturned as a result. Till my god. Yeah we do a whole episode. Just about the speed freak killers and everything that happened with them but anyway according to me woolens numerous times piece about the speed freak killers. Lauren got wind of wesley getting ready to go public with this information. That could send him straight back to prison and he died by suicide in january of two thousand twelve before that could happen so that kind of even sets off alarm bells for everyone because yeah he kind of looks like the sketch of her kidnapper. He was in the bay area at the time. They're already criminals and now he's not even around like answer questions about so unlike roger haggard. Who remember when he wrote in from indiana law enforcement didn't trust him right from the gecko. This time. Police were looking at west information pretty seriously after he writes to the stockton reporter. This bounty hunter gets involved with wesleyan's like listen. You tell me where the buys are and if your being honest with me i will pay you thirty three thousand dollars. So wesley starts drawing up these maps with places that he claims he more and put their victims including this old well in linden california and he listed as her zog's bone. Well oh my god how far his lyndon whom hayward so. It's about an hour and a half like to the east so it's not as close where west he was saying. Lawrence family lived but definitely with like an easy like driving distance. So by the middle of february two thousand twelve law enforcement have dug up multiple sites on wesleyan map and have recovered. One thousand hones including two schools that forensic teams are saying could be to known speed freak victims whose remains had never been found until that point.

"To read direct quote okay. He says quote well you know. One of them was sweet and shy and didn't say a thing but the other went kicking and screaming. I'm just guessing that that's what they would have said quote we. My mind is going a mile a minute but my first question is they like the missing girls. They i think so i. I thought he meant the perk but when i read it i really think he's talking about the girls. Yeah sounds like chills down my spine. Now after this in a surprise to no one timothy is officially named a suspect in nicky's disappearance in december of nineteen ninety. Two with police. Pretty heavily insinuating in the media. They think he could be involved. In the cases of angela amber michaela in some of these cases police don't feel that they can rule him in or fully out as a suspect but his name is definitely on their radar. According to mario brown and wayne wilson's reporting for the sacramento bee police searched his house after a bloodhound. Found nicky sent in timothy's car at angela's great. This search operation at timothy's house is pretty an orthodox like the police actually invite the media to be there and they make a point of telling them exactly what they're looking for which i have never seen done before but even with the media's help and even with the big show that they're putting on the search comes up empty and so without anything to tie back to the bloodhound evidence. Timothy actually is never charged with anything related to the girls disappearances or with anything related to another girl's disappearance that he sometime linked to a thirteen year old eileen michelle so without anything concrete and nobody michaela's case once again seems to have hit a roadblock but little do california police no a new leave is on. Its way in late. Nineteen ninety two. Four years after michaela was abducted. A prison inmate in indian named roger haggard comes forward and says that he knows who killed michaela and that he knows where her body is a. I'm sorry wait. How would the student. Indiana possibly know anything about michaela. Was he out of jail. Back in nineteen eighty-eight when the so. Here's the thing about roger. He tells the police that he escaped from a work. Detail and flew out to california in eighty eight. But according to a piece in the columbus herald he didn't actually make the daring escape that he claimed and said he was actually let out of jail because he'd gotten leave from the court to go to this rehabilitation appointment and then just like never went back to jail afterwards until he came back to indiana in eighty nine and then he was arrested literally two hours after getting back into the state. Cool cool cool. Yeah so roger tells police that while he was on the run in eighty-eight eight he met this guy in hayward named slam davidson who allegedly kinda resembles that composite. Sketch that i showed you now. They both have substance use issues. They drank they used crack cocaine together and one night after they'd gotten high together at slams trailer. Roger alleges that slam showed him michaela's body. He said that she was wrapped up in a tarp. And according to roger he saw one arm and heart of her face and her chest now. He says he doesn't know how she died but he did see that. She looked like she'd been stabbed several times. After showing him michaela's body. Roger says slam put her in the trunk of the car and together. They drove out to this field outside of union city that was covered in gladiolas. Flowers just everywhere. He says that slam had already dug a hole for the body. That was already. They're already ready. But rodgers said that he got sick watching him berry michaela's body and just couldn't watch the rest of it now pretty much right from the start. Law enforcement is skeptical and rodgers. Credibility only gets shakier once he keeps telling his story and every time like inconsistencies are popping up but michaela's mom sharon kind of different opinion at the time. Should ginsburg reported for the san francisco. Examiner that sharon actually wants to give roger the benefit of the doubt on the odds. That may just maybe he has some real answer right. Kind of like a mother's hope type thing. Yeah and i wasn't able to find her opinion like plays any role in law enforcement decision making here but whatever they're logic take roger seriously enough to bring him out to california in january of ninety three for questioning at one point rogers actually driven out to a field where he claimed slam buried michaela so that he can show police where to dig but after eight hours he then admits that he made the whole story up because he wanted to and i quote give her family peace of mind. He made up the story to help the family even though he knew his allies sounds legit. It's total bs. And personally i get a little peace of mind knowing that roger got six and a half years. Add onto his sentence after polling such a heinous stunt. Is it bad to say thank god. Thank god okay. Cool after this whole mess with roger and the false lead law enforcement or once again just left with a bunch of loose ends without any solid information to help them narrow down the investigation. They keep trying to investigate. And by nineteen ninety four. This is six years now. after michaela i disappeared. Police have checked over. Fifteen thousand. Lease fifteen thousand. Oh my god and The investigations continue through the nineties and into the new millennium without any breakthroughs or progress. In nineteen ninety-seven timothy binsar got ninety thousand dollars in a settlement. After he sues the fairfield police department for defamation over being named a suspect in nicky's disappearance. And remember how i told you that police invited the media members to the search yeah so helpless sizing it like heavily backfired on the police which high. Maybe we don't see it today. Because tim's able to argue that the fairfield police ruined his reputation by painting him as a pedophile. And a child killer. The police ruined his reputation even though he was the one giving the press like these awful kid poems and taking journalists to graves in the middle of the night but since he was never arrested or charged with the crimes that he's being accused of like he was able to make a case and actually good case because in january of two thousand nine as creepy timothy is and who the heck knows what he's into police announced that a convicted pedophile named curtis dean anderson confessed to nikki's abduction and murder before he died in prison in two thousand seven and they said because of that they were closing her case and tim is no longer a suspect and two thousand nine hundred big year because not only does this happen but later that same year in august at a parole office in concord california and again just for context is like forty minutes north of hayward something incredible happens you see back in ninety one. Almost three years after michaela was taken another. Little girl was kidnapped in the same area. It was eleven year old. Jaycee.

Good old timothy appears inserting himself in the investigation. Now the earliest record. I could find if this goes back to nineteen seventy eight when eleven-year-old year old. Tara causey vanished now. I wasn't able to find exactly what timothy did. In tara's case beyond being connected to the investigation by police and nothing in my research says what he did in the next five years but in nineteen eighty three. After five year old angela. Boo gay was kidnapped and found murdered a few days later. What do you know that's when timothy's behavior starts to get really out of line. Only do you mean that same. Abc news he's reported that timothy made frequent visits to angela's grave like enough visit. That people are noticing that he's like going there and more than that he liked to go there in the middle of the night. So how many times do you have to go for someone to notice that. You're there a lot in the middle of the night. Yeah that's not super normal for anyone. Anyone know five years later. In june of nineteen eighty-eight five months before michaela's taken a seven-year-old girl named amber swertz garcia went from her front yard in pinole california. This is about forty five minutes north of hayward where michaela lipped within three days. Wouldn't you know it. Tim turned up uninvited to talk to ambrose. Mom can and told her that he'd been out in the woods looking for her because he wanted be the one to bring her home. I don't like that. At all. No like i love a good samaritan but this is feeling wrong and i'm not but i kim thought maybe this guy was again just being a good samaritan or whatever but when she heard him refer to the search as quote looking for a dead body again the re days after she's missing like that was it for her. She wanted this guy gone but he kept trying to stay involved like literally. He called her for years after that. All my god now. A year later in nineteen eighty nine. He got arrested for harassing pair of young girls that he had lured into his van like apparently drove by this big boxy blue van kind of bang. So that's the car that trina saw the day that michaela was taken out. No yes so. He's got this big boxy blue van and michaela's we're looking for a totally different car. But i mean i think this is. Everyone's like literal worst nightmare on wheels because timothy covered the walls inside this van with pictures of children. We what's yeah and as this isn't creepy enough timothy also reached out to police and the fbi like before michaela disappeared in nineteen eighty eight. Here's what's so strange. He wrote a letter telling law enforcement that he thought the next girl to go missing would be nine years old or wouldn't you know it. Michaela was nine years old when she was taken right and it gets weirder because in nineteen ninety one days before four year old nikki vanished. Timothy sent the fbi a christmas card with a picture of a girl holding up one. Two three four fingers which is how old nikki was when she disappeared. Ryan i i want to say that this is just a weird coincidence and this guy is just a whack job making wild guesses but how is it happened twice and beyond that again to your point like okay you make one guess okay cool but to get it right twice you have to in my mind like no the girls ages. You have to like target them. You have to know things right. There's an element of almost stocking and planning and expecting to execute within even a certain amount of days. Yeah and here's the thing he's not just taunting family or law enforcement. This guy is putting himself square in front of media to you. He starts doing interviews with local papers and the things that he says. He reads his poetry to the media. Poetry about a job that he says he really loved at a crematorium where this tragedy he talks about having to deal with dead infant. Yeah i'm not reading you. Exit of homes which are gonna find as terrible as you can imagine now what is strange to me. But i mean shouldn't be a surprise when you learn everything about this guy. Is that instead of trying to use the press to make himself look less suspicious. He does something so bizarre and so strange. That one can't help but wonder almost if he's trying to get caught for something and then nineteen eighty s. La be very dark place. The same anna suspected in six to eight murders twenty five to thirty attacks. Californians have come to know him as the night stalker he someone that will go into a home and we'll kill crew was on to stop the madman. There was doing all this.

Now streaming only on netflix by the early nineties journalist named linda. Goldstone got an interview with timothy. But not under normal circumstances.

She picks them up at four thirty in the morning and he wants to be interviewed. Act the cemetery where angelou gay is berry and she does it. Oh my god day. Drive out there and timothy.

"People who work in these really dark spaces in one of the people she interviewed is someone from the fbi who works on their car team. Which is their child abduction rapid deployment team so like duck. They come in and this totally unrelated to our story. But i found so interesting is he said that actually yes. We have to go door to door. We have to talk to the registered sex offenders at the box. We have to check but statistically he said it's actually hardly ever those even in case of stranger abductions which i yeah. I mean to meet the first people. I would think that you'd be interested in. But yeah i see. What are we now. Learn something new everyday exactly now. This case gets a ton of attention in the local press. Partly because i think at the time again this is eight this was such a brazen cry. You know totally i mean. It's a stranger action in a public place in the middle of the morning. Total broad daylight right and stranger. Abductions are super super rare. Like i know we talked about so many because those tend to be the ones that go unsolved for so long and people in the true crime space here about these cases so much that you might think it's more prevalent than it really is with the national center for missing exploited. Children has a stat from michaela's era. That says out of the twenty three thousand eight hundred ninety nine. Children reported missing between nineteen eighty four and nineteen eighty-nine. Only five hundred. Eleven of those were actually stranger up. Duck shins wow yeah so because this case was like almost inconceivable at the time the media was all over it and the tip lines at the police have opened are flooded with calls about men believed to be like matches for the composite. Sketch or you know. People think someone they know is somehow involved. I mean literally. There're hundreds of phone calls every single day. And according to don martinez is piece in the san francisco. Examiner within a week. Police have over six hundred league to go on. No this is something we have talked about before. We're like getting so much. Information becomes a bit of like a double edged sword for police right to the point where these almost are getting overwhelmed right. You have all this information but it's so much it's hard to even begin to sift through it. Yeah you only have so many people so many man hours like you decide which is the legit ones which are gonna take you nowhere and they try and sort through than they try to go down the right track but weeks go by and one by one. The leads keep coming up empty. The search is all end up with nothing and within a month. Michaela's case is just beginning to stall the investigation eventually loses steam and within a year michaela's trail is totally cold. That is until another young girl. Goes missing episodes.

North of hayward of four year. Old girl named amanda campbell gets her dad's permission to go down the street and play with one of her friends since her middle name is nicole and her family just called her nikki nikki. Is this really outspoken. Friendly kid who super cheerful now just like how michaela only recently got allowed to go to the grocery store with her friends. Nikki's parents have just started letting her and her brother matthew do things like ride their bike around the block so as long as they're like together they can do it now on this particular day nikki rides with matthew for a little while and then at around four thirty that afternoon. Nikki leaves home on bike alone without her brother. But she never makes it to her friend's house like she's supposed to according to the san bernardino county son. Nicky's bike is found that same evening near a gate leading to a vacant lot around the corner from her house. But there is no trace anywhere around of nikki. Pretty much right from the start. The search for nikki is she. You like fbi's here within two days but there's nothing for them to go. No witnesses no leads just a missing girl and her abandoned bike but at some point during the investigation police wind that girl who lives in his neighborhood has been getting some pretty weird attention lately. Wait what do you mean so this other girl is in named in any of the sources that i read probably because she's twelve years old but abc news reported that her parents had called the police a couple of months before nikki vanished and said that their daughter had been getting mail from a strange man. Now this guy's name is timothy. been jenner. he's clearly like signing at. Are they found out who he was. And he's forty three years old and even though he doesn't know the twelve year old girl or her family. He's been writing hard these letters that are like all backwards and like i say backwards. Not like they're like weird or strange like you literally have to hold them up to a mere to read though like literally written backward literally backwards. Yeah as police look closer at tennessee. They keep finding more and more inappropriate behavior towards underage girls. He has a job at a sewage treatment. Plant they learn and he's been using his position to access confidential address information so that he can send birthday cards whole the bay area two girls. He's never met. Don't like that in. No one likes that and when police ask him about it. They're like hey buddy like what's this about. No normal man. Does this and timothy says that he does it because he thinks these girls are quote unquote lonely. Which how would he know. He doesn't even know them because he's a creek. Come like they're not lonely. And just wait so. Remember how i told you. The community in hayward really like rallied around the garrett family after michaela was abducted. Yeah yes so one of the people who was part of that rally who came to their house the very same day back in nineteen eighty eight was timothy. been jenner. no yes mccullough's mom. Sharon actually wrote about this on her blog seeker's road but she clearly remembers him being there and she told. Abc news that he brought his own map and showed her where he wanted to go. Look for michaela. So now with this timothy been link kind of popping up in both nicky and michaela's disappearance police. Start to wonder if there's a connection between timothy in these missing girls and the more they look into timothy's past the.

"On the morning of november nineteenth nineteen eighty eight and hayward california bay area. A young girl named trina is getting super excited. It is the first day of thanksgiving break. And she's hoping that she'll get to hang out with her best friend in the whole world michaela joy garrett the nine years old. They're in fourth grade and they've been feeling open. We're like grown-ups lately. Because every once in a while they're allowed to go to the grocery store alone without their parents having only been allowed to do this since the summer. But it's like a big deal. Yeah i mean. I remember like what when we were in fourth grade ever being able to nineteen ninety nine. Sure sure but if i hear clips everywhere but being like walk to a friend's house or a neighbor's house by yourself is like oh we're thinking ahead and now the independent fell amazing. So trina calls michaela after breakfast hoping that since its break. It's a nice day. Michaela's mom sharon will let michaela go with her to the rainbow market. Which is on mission boulevard. It's less than like a quarter of a mile from the kayla's house and sure enough. Sharon says yes since michaela lives right around the corner. She comes over with five dollars from her mom so they can go by whatever they want all that freedom. According to diana walsh's piece in the san francisco examiner they decided to take scooters to the market so troas brother lens his scooter michaela while trina rights hers and the girls head off they get to the store and they leave their scooters while they go in and buy some treats like sodas candy beef jerky not only vacation. Breakfast of champions. But i'm pretty sure that's all we eight when we were. I'm pretty shocked. All we ate growing up we lived. Beef jerky true. Trina and michaela head out of the store with their food and they're kind of like laughing talking getting caught up in just like hanging out with their best friend on this break and they're so caught up that they realize they're walking and totally forgot about their scooters so when they remember they like go back to get them and michaela's scooter is in there right where she left it. There's trina trainers but no michaela's now neither one of them wanna go back and explain to us. Brother that the scooter mikhael borrowed is missing or stolen. So the girls decide to split up and look for someone must have taken it. Someone must have moved it. Hopefully it's still around nearby. So trina goes one way. Michaela goes the other and shortly after they split. This is like ten fifteen in the morning at this quaint. Trina here something that makes her heart to rock. She hears her best friend screaming. Trina looks up and she's frozen with fear as she watches a strange man. Grab a still screaming. Michaela around her waist toss her in the back seat of a car and speed off down mission boulevard heading south towards union city. Trina runs into the rainbow market and tells one of the cashiers. What happened and the cashier calls nine. One one right away and local law enforcement mobilized to try and find michaela now luckily for them. The woman who calls nine one one four. Trina says that she saw the man who grabbed michaela drive by earlier in the day and as soon as police arrive at the market. She's able to give them a description. She says the man was white. He was in his thirties with this big mustache and she said he was driving. Maybe this like burgundy colored har. She can't say anything about a maker a model now minnesota terrible right. I mean it's a starting point. But as i was researching i found. Another description of the suspect dated november. Twenty just the day. After michaela's abduction this description from walt gibbs piece in the san francisco examiner says that the suspect is younger. Twenty and twenty eight years old tall and skinny with pimples face and dirty blond hair now this piece goes on to say that police believed the man has a mustache but the article mentions that michaela's mom sharon isn't so sure that that's true at all. Why not article doesn't say according to the mercury news. Though i guess for the first couple of days police had gone with the first description of the suspect the one. He's older with the mustache. Okay but i guess. I don't even understand how there's that much confusion this early on in this case. Which description is right. We'll from what i can tell. Police believe that the one this correct is actually the second one. That guy with blond hair pimples. Face from what i can tell. They went with the first one from the market clerk until they interview. Trina and somehow through her interview. They realized that the woman from the rainbow market was actually describing the wrong person and apparently they found that it couldn't have been that man who kidnapped michaela. No nothing in my research says when exactly this conversation happens or why police wait a couple of days before talking to her but once they do they feel like they're really able to nail down that second description the more accurate description and revise telling the public so they say there's no mustache. The man's skin problems go beyond. Just a few pimples. Actually they say. He's got like noticeably bad. Acne that's been described. Almost like boils on his face with pockmarks and scars so using this new description from trina. They put together a composite. Sketch and here. I am going to send this to you. And if you want to kind of give the listeners. A little bit of a description so the sketch has of like you said younger male. He has kind of a longish face. You can definitely see a few like like you. Said like pimples or pockmarks or acne scars. I mean it's just a pencil drawing in a newspaper. From what i hear you. So it's hard to determine what's like shading and what's copy you know debris in what's actually in the drying but he has this kind of long stringy looking blonde hair right so if the polices first description of the suspect was wrong. Then what about the car yes. The car description is actually wrong to. It's not burgundy. They say that the car that they really want to be looking for is either like tan or beige or gold like somewhere in that color family which is completely different than burgundy completely which again. I don't think people miss saw things. I think they're looking at two completely different people in completely different cars right right. Would they are able to say though about the car is that it's an older four door sedan. That looks pretty. Beat up but again just like the burgundy car no one knows with the make or model might be despite losing valuable time looking for the wrong suspect in the wrong car. The first couple of days of the investigation aren't a total loss and by sunday. Night michaela's family and a small army of volunteers managed to hand out over fifty thousand missing person fliers with her picture on them in and around the bay area. The sbi joins in on the investigation sometime over the weekend and together with local law enforcement. They do multiple aerial searches with planes and helicopters looking for any sign of michaela police and the fbi even spend the next week checking out local mechanic shops and scrap yards all over hayward looking for that car thinking maybe somebody like ditched it or again it was like old maybe broke down the interview tons of potential witnesses. All over michaela's neighborhood. We're talking adults kids. Everybody and law enforcement also questions registered sex offenders nearby. Which just as a note we actually have this new show coming out called dark arenas where. Delia has gone an interview..

"Or up to several days. But that depends on a lot of different factors like environmental conditions. What kind of surface? It is how warm it is in the room the humidity so it's a little hard to say right now. Exactly how long will ask so? You know my instinct would just be cleaned the DOORKNOB if possible or not. Touch it with my hand. And what about the air? We have a question about Ken. The virus linger in the air. Let's say you get out of an elevator and somebody writing before you had corona virus. Yeah this is an area that sort of up for debate right now. There have been some preliminary studies that show. Ronna virus can linger in the air for a couple of hours but those studies haven't been pure reviewed yet and so I think in general folks. Just have to take as much precaution as possible and really practice those social distancing measures have been recommended by the CDC and other public health officials. So the next question is is there a way we can see what neighborhoods people with virus are located in? So we can know where to be the most careful. I think that might be the wrong way to look at it. We know not very much testing has been done. At least not a sufficient amount of testing has been done. We should be looking at it as how to follow best practices all over the bay area. So whether you're in the hate or if you're in so much like you should follow the same health practices that you would anywhere else. Even as people are trying to move around less were still moving around a lot. You know someone who woke up in The Hague who you know may have gone to. I don't know a farmer's market in Palo Alto later in the week you know quickly could could move somethin' from one place to another. I think one of their issue is you know a lot of people potentially could have it. Who aren't getting tested. Especially if you know you're a healthier person and you're not exhibiting some of the more severe symptoms. This virus can also be symptomatic so you could have it and have no symptoms so I think that we all just have to act with an abundance of caution and like I said before not necessarily just for us but for the other people in our lives who are immuno-compromised who are over the age of sixty who could have a really negative reaction to this virus if they got it. Let's talk about the people who are currently experiencing some kind of illness Maybe it's cold. Maybe it's the flu. Maybe it's corona virus. One listener wants to know. Why can't I get tested for the virus? There just aren't enough test to go around. I mean that's the short answer. Is You know we've heard a lot recently about the CDC and other struggling to get enough test to test folks who are showing symptoms of Corona virus. So that's one of the reasons I think if folks are sick they can follow some basic guidelines. Which is stay home? We'll start there stay home. Don't go to work. Try Not to go like a lot of interactions with other people and then getting contact with your primary care. Doctor Tell them what your symptoms are. Tell them where you've been. Tell them who you've been in contact with. And then they can help make that assessment for you just taking really slow and deliberate of steps at that. Point might be the best way to go forward. A lot of workplaces are sending employees home for two weeks. You know saying everyone. We're GONNA work from home for the next two weeks. What is it about two weeks that is kind of wise? It become this sort of standard amount of time. Yes so I think in part is that this virus has a fourteen day incubation period. So at the end of those two weeks folks should know whether or not they're sick and be able to take appropriate action but I think the real answer is that fourteen days is conservative. And it's sort of A. We're going to try this for fourteen days and see how it goes and then if they need to extend the amount of time that folks are kept out of work. They likely well. That's that's totally my conjecture. But nobody wants to send workers home for a month or two months and there's also a thought that the krona virus could be like the flu which tends to clear up in the spring and summer months and I think a lot of people are hoping that the corona virus will do the same thing and that by the time we hit April. May It will have dissipated. I WanNa talk a little bit also about what's happening here in the bay area like what our communities and governments doing to to help. Stop the spread of this thing. Yeah so as of the time a recording this Oakland San Francisco and Santa Clara counties. Have all band large events of more than a thousand people I mean basketball games concerts performances and other big public events will not be taking place for a certain period of time. And that's really to keep the virus from spreading between large groups of people and then we've also seen a lot of recommendations by local governments to really practice social distancing you know they're encouraging telecommuting and San Francisco recently There was a proposed package of legislation from the Board of supervisors which would help out with some of the lost money. While people are out of work it would try to put a moratorium on fictions to prevent people from becoming une housed and then San Francisco has also set up some quarantine sites for homeless residents so that they can have a location ago too. If it's found that they have contracted the novel coronavirus. Now we have a number of listeners. Who are looking at what's happening in Italy and what happened in Wuhan and wondering you know could have time come where we would be quarantined. It's hard to say it's kind of hard to imagine you know when I saw this question. I my first response was no of course not but then as I looked into it. I I saw federal official saying you know. They don't believe that that's what's going to happen. But they can't take anything off the table right now on a day by day basis. It seems like the cases are growing. But that's something that we expect it to happen. As the testing capacity grew we knew that more cases would be confirmed. This story is moving. It's fluid and we'll have to wait and see right and you know you're covering this you know so closely that right now. I'm are there any precautions that you are taking personally? So I'm participating in social distancing. I've been working from home. I have been washing my hands much longer and much more frequently. Every time I get home from being outside at all I wash my hands. I've been doing more skype calls and facetime calls with friends which is a little odd. But it's one way that helps me prevent from feeling isolated from my community and then I'm just trying to be you know mindful of of what I touch who I interact with to make sure that I'm not spreading anything around at this point. It seems like those are the best steps that we can take. So I've been taking those steps hygiene hygiene hygiene. Yeah my hands are very dry now though we do have one last question and perhaps it's a silly one but I'm thinking about everyone you know sitting at their house trying to figure out what to do. Anonymous wants to know. Does ALCOHOL CURE CORONA VIRUS. Unfortunately it does not. Wouldn't that be a fun solution? But it does not cause or cure corona virus. Alright well Michelle Wiley.

"We are too. We're going to answer some of your questions today. But first a quick look back at how we got where we are in the bay area right now. Officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have confirmed a case of novel Corona Virus in California. The number of novel Corona Virus Cases Continues To rise San Francisco officials have announced the first two cases among city residents one hundred and fifty seven. That's the number of confirmed corona virus cases in California reported by state public health officials to effectively retained. The virus. Thousands of people need to be tested every day. That is not happening in California anywhere in the country right. What these emergencies highlight is our basic failure of our system to serve the most vulnerable among us people who are older who have underlying chronic health conditions homeless populations the biggest thing that the see anybody has said is hygiene hygiene. I G Santa Clara County has announced a ban on public gatherings of more than a thousand people for the next three weeks in response to the virus. What happens if for example? I feel sick and call the public health department to ask for advice. Have you returned from Italy? Have you returned from Japan? Who Have you talked to? Who Have you been in close contact with? Is it is. It's extremely concerning. So that's why we should be trying to take this seriously. It's been pretty intense yesterday. The World Health Organization announced that couvert nineteen is officially a pandemic more than one hundred. Twenty thousand people are infected worldwide. Here in the bay area. We've got ninety nine confirmed cases at the time of this recording and so far three people in the state have died. This news is scary. And if you're like me you're trying to figure out how to protect yourself and those around you. You're trying to figure out. Where is the line between overreacting and under reacting ultimately there are a lot of known to this thing I can't promise you the depths or certainty of answers that we usually try to give you here on Bay curious but we're going to tell you everything we do know about the virus right now but how it's transmitted about what you should do about travel plans? And how governments are responding. We'll get into it right after this support for bay curious comes from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company family owned operated and argued over since nineteen eighty reminding listeners to think for themselves but drink with others. Sierra NEVADA DOT COM. We've been taking your questions about coronavirus and compiling answers at K. Q. E. D. Dot Org for a few weeks now Katie's Michelle Wiley is focused solely on answering some of those questions so we welcome Michelle now. Hey Michelle Hey. There's a lot of information that circling out there and it just feels like everything is changing so rapidly. How are you covering this? Someone who's trying to answer listener questions you know every day. It's just following those changes as fast as I can. You know there's a lot of information and it's coming from a lot of different places so in some way I feel pretty akin to our listeners. Being like what is going on I don't I'm hearing one thing from this place. One thing from this other place. I'm just trying to tackle it. You know one day one question at a time and I know for a while when people were talking about Corona Virus. They would say oh. Your risk of dying from influenza is greater than Corona virus. Everyone's overreacting about this. But it definitely feels like in the past week at least here in the Bay Area. Things have have shifted and people are really taking it more seriously. Why is this virus worse than the flu or a regular cold so I think when it comes to talking about better or worse should really think about it more as known and unknown when it comes to diseases like colds or the flu? We do know a fair amount about those diseases. We kind of know what time of year they tend to crop up. We have a vaccine for the flu but when it comes to a corona virus. We don't really know very much you know we. We're not sure if it's going to continue on into the spring and summer months we don't have a vaccine for it so there's just a lot that we don't know right now so. I want to dive into some of these audience questions. This first one comes from Alan Kay and he wants to know like what about riding on a bus with other people. You if you are still going to work. How do you get there on public transit safely for writing on public transportation? General Best Practices apply. So make sure you're washing your hands. Make sure you using hand sanitizer and try not to touch your face after you've touched public spaces you know. Many public transit agencies have upped their cleaning cycles. So Bart is now going through the entire train. After it completes each Lupin workers disinfect any area writer might touch so like the hand loops that you hold onto Any sort of bar you might hold onto near the doors really any area humane touch and then Muny officials also say their equipment is being cleaned daily. You know that can offer some comfort but really. It's only as clean as the last person who touched it. I think another thing that folks can take a little solace from is because ridership is down. Bart spokeswoman Militia Tro says there's a lot of space on there we don't have as much crowding and what that means is you're able to have that arm's distance space between you and someone else. We don't normally have that luxury. We have crowding during peak commute times but because we have experienced a drop in ridership you can make sure that your an arm's distance link from someone yeah. I can vouch that I rode into work yesterday. And it just felt like they were like half the people of normal okay so this next question comes from a listener. Amy and she writes. I'm a wedding photographer. And I go to a couple weddings all over the bay area every month to work. Should I cancel my work? Or what kind of precaution should I take? So as of Wednesday morning San Francisco officials did announce that they will issue a public order that will prohibit large events of a thousand people or more. So you know. If this person's worked isn't fall into that category it really depends on what they're comfortable with. And what their health status is. If you decide to go to work make sure you wash your hands. Frequently try to carry hand sanitizer and maintain some distance between yourself and others. It's one of the best ways you can keep herself and others safe. People have mentioned at risk populations. What makes somebody at risk? Big At risk populations are folks over sixty and anyone who's immuno-compromised so part of the concerns that folks have is that you know if you're a particularly healthy person you might not have an issue catching corona virus. But you could bring it back to folks who could get seriously. Ill even die from catching it. So you just want to be really careful not only for your own health and wellbeing but for the health and wellbeing of your whole community that you're not getting corona virus and spreading it another category that we've got a lot of questions in is travel. A lot of people have travel plans coming up. They want to know what to do with them. One person wrote in and they have plans currently to fly from OAKLAND TO ATLANTA ON MARCH. Twenty first and wants to know. Should I cancel? What are the risks of being on a plane with in the US for an extended period of time so he spoke with officials at the Oakland Airport in San Francisco airport and they say this time passengers should expect serve normal operations at the airport? Both have up to their cleanings quite significantly. I think the San Francisco airport has months of cleaner. They're like stockpiling to make sure that they have enough for the long haul. Essentially so there's more handwashing stations there. You should see more hand. Sanitizing stations there as well as increased cleaning staff so for this person. Who's traveling to Atlanta? I'd say you know it really depends on what you're comfortable with. And if you're comfortable traveling as oppose spokesman Geico says the best thing folks can do is just follow good hygiene practices. You're touching something that might have been touched by other people. Wash your hands. If you're unable to wash your hands use hand sanitizer. You can't do that. Avoid touching your eyes your nose or your mouth because that's really how. How a lot of types of colds and Flus Corona viruses are transmitted. One tip that we spoke about on the phone was you should try and bring a small container of hand sanitizer in your carry on that way. You don't have to get and go to the bathroom as frequently can kinda sanitize on the go at your own pace so I guess staying on sort of the same track of of airplanes. Another listener wants to know. Does it seem likely that airplanes are going to be treated like cruise ships? Are where if somebody on. Boorda's found to be sick. Maybe you know after the travel that all passengers could be quarantined. I think at this point. It's a little hard to say. So according to the CDC's guidelines if someone on board an aircraft is sick or thought to have the novel Corona Virus Airline staff are instructed to separate them from other passengers of possible provide them face mask and then once the plane lands the CDC will conduct an assessment and determine if folks who were on the plane with them need to be quarantined and of course that assessment will generally consist of is it really krona virus or is it some other illness that looks like chronic virus. I think at this point. It's probably unlikely that airplanes will be treated like cruise ships just in part because of the way that people are transported. How many people are transported? But it's Kinda hard to rule anything out and the next set of questions has to do with transmission so this listener asks if an infected person touches a doorknob. How long does the virus last on that? Doorknob stay suggests. Corona virus may persist on surfaces for a few hours.
"bay area." Discussed on Martha Runs the World Podcast
"All of it? Wow Yeah in two thousand sixteen I circumnavigated Bay Area Ridge. Shell and I did it Just as far as with groups of friends so they're sections that I thought that high that Iran. I'm originally runner or anything. I running of the different channels here in the bay area. Since nineteen ninety three was my high school cross country team and over time it just became a passion Just love to protect these different trials that I enjoy Scarring through running. So I became a board member on the retrial and during the time period I was also circumnavigating and it was signing a each time I hiked or ran or bike Segment I always thought it was my most favorite section of the route trial so a lot of people that's kind of where the question of what's your favorite section gender your favorite view. Because every time I discovered a new section something amazing about it that I hadn't experienced in the past it made it Really easy and what was also neat about circumnavigating. The retrial is just accessibility so a lot of it was just maybe forty five minutes in a different direction so it was a lot more accessible. Looked when you kind of look at the whole big map and I was just able to switch up Maya Saturday. Ron Go someplace new so yeah so. I didn't in Less than nine and what I did is just took those moments of time that I had free To do a section of it but with people are considering of coming circumnavigators. I really think you don't have to do it in a year. Two years or three years really think about what type of experienced with light on the retrial. It could be anything from Ryan to photography to have a new spot height with your hiking group. And just get out there making your own experience when you start hiking at you. Just really searching realized the diversity of the bay area in topography and they're so much more than Trials in your backyard. Even though they're amazing beautiful old airs these experiences that are just down the road. That are completely different. Yeah Yeah it is. We can be get ten minutes away from our house. We can be out in the wilderness. It yes it's that. Yeah you're in the city and just captured a perfectly. You're literally in the city stuck in traffic and then ten minutes way. You feel like you're the only person out there. Sometimes you might only personnel on. Yeah it's it's true it's true you are the more remote and get less old and I. It really gives you. I think perspective and what we're finding out now through research is that outdoor time is really great for your health and it's now becoming a prescription from some doctors people to enjoy the outdoors. Absolutely well I wanNA thank you so much for being on the show. This is great. This makes me WANNA go out and get up to Mount Tam Right now but after the weekend But thank you very very much for being on the show and I hope this speech in the bay area more involved and visitors who come to the bay area they can check it out and visit some of the trails. I can't wait to see all the new additions to the Ridge trail this year and in the years to come and hopefully in the near future will see a complete yes. Well I'm excited when it does complete I hope that as far as all being able to be there for the dedication and walk saddened segment absolutely and thank you so much for being on the show and I hope you have an excellent week and Talk to you soon. All right bye okay bye. Thank you so much Luana. It was a real pleasure to have you on the show. I learned so much about that wonderful trail that we have. We're so lucky to have that here. I will have all the links for the Bay Area Ridge trail on the website. I also and something that a lot and I talked after the interview is that the Pacific coast trail runs at one of the trail run race. Companies Sponsors a Bay Bay Area Ridge race series. They had I think they have to three different races throughout the year for the Bay Area Ridge trail and it goes on parts of the rich drill. I've done one of them. I did the thirty seven. K that goes from the San Francisco because from Baker Beach and San Francisco and that goes over the bridge and then he goes out and then ends at Stinson Beach. So I've done that distance. It's really fun. It was a great race. They also have one at East Bay and I believe there is one in the South Bay too. But I'm not sure about that. But I'll put their link on the website too so you can check it out and do one of those races. They are wonderfully run. They're excellent race company. You will have a great time very fun. People run those races and volunteer work at those races. It's just a lot of fun. You will not regret it now. The thing that she mentioned is a barrier bear bait. Can I talk berry? Esa Bart Station? It's not open yet. Bart Bay Area Rapid Transit. It's our train station. It's like a quote unquote rapid train. That goes all all around. Most of the bay it's It's not that fast. Not really and they're not that fast. As far as building new stations. They usually are very late. They never come in within schedule. So there is one in northern San Jose which is about time they should have had things down to San Jose. Sooner but there's a lot of politics especially when you get in the suburbs Barry Esa. Why am I having a hard time saying that? Berry? Esa Bart stations should be open soon and there is a trail right from that Bart station. That would be really fun to follow and it'd be like I said it'll be great to have a Bart Station in San Jose. Lots of stuff in San Jose for people see but we can't get to without Bart. We could take the the train the real trains but they're massively slow and wickedly overpriced all right. There's a lot in that and I'm not even going to get into because it's not about running asked me sometime. If you see me in person. Okay all the links will be on the website and you'll be able to see. What is the website? Martha the website is Martha runs the world dot com on the website as well you can donate to patriots. You could become a patriotic patron for dollar a month for three dollars a month for five dollars a month. Two.
"bay area." Discussed on Bay Curious
"For our love letter to the bay area. We sent producers Jessica check and Kiana Mocha down in the night of ideas at the San Francisco Public Library. What's happening today? We recorded interviews with about forty strangers. Asking them what makes them love the Bay area and what keeps them here. That's many of you reflected on moments when you were inspired by the striking natural beauty of this place. They went all the way to Nikko Kayaking at night. Pitch Black and as we start going out more and more as my eyes to the just dark the water around my Kayak starts glowing blue. The water out there is bioluminescence and you know I was just enjoying this amazing water. That was just read literally radiating blue and it made me think about all the Times that also were on inspiring three or four days. A week I swim in the Bay and it's such an incredible experience every time the first experience wasn't it was a little scary because it was cold and I was thinking too much about. Is this too cold? Am I GONNA get hypothermic? Is a Sea Lion GonNa bite me and you know and then I would hit a piece of seaweed and get freaked out and But after a few times you just feel like you're in another world in a world that's so much bigger than you. I love the ocean views. Eleven marine I love seeing the fog. I'm just GONNA say Carl. I don't really like you that much but I'm trying to love you. I always go over to Oakland to chase the sun. Coney has some of the best county parks in the whole United States and they even have senior citizen discount for parking so now that I'm retired. I just love hiking. I started walking into the Golden Gate Park and I ran into the Bison and the vice to the bay every part of the bay area offers something beautiful to see and experience. We also heard a lot of stories. About how the culture here has delighted. You take this story from one. Lopez who I moved to the bay area as a boy in nineteen eighty nine. When we first came to America we left Nicaragua for political reasons. And we got a cheap apartment in the mission and I didn't know this was going on but I woke up to all these sounds and Saturday morning and I look outside. And my dad's already looking outside. And there's all these beautiful grows half-naked so he was like happy. We made the right choice coming to America and I was still too young hundred fully understand but I saw how happy he wasn't looking good thing so so every year now we go off the city. Still like it's got a gold rush. Feel to it like there's still like you know you know technologists trying to make their fortune and You know and the bustle that comes with that and even now so the chaos that comes with all of that and there was just like a random guy is trying to talk to the United. I ignored him and then he wrote it down your beautiful and I was like oh so sweet and it's just like just random people showing appreciation just trying to be nice kind and there's actually a lot of people here that are like that. So opportunity has always been part of the story of the Bay area from native people who flourished in our climate to the thousands of immigrants both foreign and domestic who came in search of gold for so many of you. This place is still a beacon of opportunity for careers new beginnings a place to be yourself a mechanical engineer. The give me the best opportunity to develop my career. They give me the opportunity other countries probably would not have done would not have have a woman that the what I had in this country? I'm originally from France and I was bullied a lot there and I saw coming to the Berry as like in approach immunity to be like. Oh cool it's a new opportunity. Nobody would judge me and that's exactly what it was. I moved here when I was eighteen to be gay in public. The exception some people feel at home here and then there's the opportunity to be part of a diverse community. That's one of the things I was looking for when I moved here as a pilot or callers so you saw the Chinese culture the magic. I'm not no Honduran and all different cultures and just one single area. How Alto California always seem much more like home than Iowa for the Chinese food alone prayed? Just remember as a child being able to have Chinese food that tasted so different from anything you could get in the mid west. I actually was walking Lake Merritt one day on Saturday and they were having a women's March and it was like how a variety of women from all different backgrounds coming together and not just women it was also other gentlemen there will and so it was this powerful to see how passionate in deep people feel about equality Especially in current political climate. How certain groups and certain people get marginalized you WanNa to be somewhere where people are power for their passionate about that so it was a Gaza. Samis played back in the day when we were kids. She often said if I can take a pitcher out of Atlantic Ocean and that can sweeten that pitcher but I can't sweeten entire ocean all been like the lack in that community. Feel that I had the ability to impact the community. I can't do this macaroni level but I can do a small community so I in education. I really WANNA do. That was the first day when we brought our son to his elementary school and seeing the diversity and and the care of the teachers and the creativity of the teachers. That was a special moment when we asked about what specific moment made you love the bay area. A lot of the stories that we got were about moments that you felt pure joy this is cheesy but I love Dolores Park. I was just there this afternoon and it was beautiful and it was sunny and it was so warm its first side of the Munster candidate. Normally people will bring your dogs but you get all the cats and they're all just hanging out on the grass and looking very unsure about what's happening but enjoying it just like everybody else. The moment that I fell in love with the bay area was stepping into my first ecstatic. Dance the one in San Francisco is unique in that it's in an old Catholic church in the lower haight and all the pews have been doubt and it's now a skating rink which is beautiful but on Sundays. There's beautiful natural pouring in through the stained glass windows and at the front of the room as a DJ. And what I found was a room full of people expressing themselves in such beautiful ways. Staying here and loving. This place isn't always an easy choice. The Bay area has changed since last year. I came to know it. Anita Wong had to work through some tough stuff growing up here. I really just had to kind of a horrible horrible like highschool experience kind of had to deal with my best friend and she actually committed suicide when I was nineteen. I just didn't want to be here anymore. There's bad feelings about it but I you know I wanted to go to school and college somewhere else. Even my parents were here You know I'd have resisted really for a long time to come back but then now I'm thirty one so a lot older and I've moved it's different places across the country but I feel like I realized like my home and my heart is really in the bay area. I see how much the bay area has affected my family in terms of how many community members supporting my family and I felt like I couldn't take that away from them so I had to deal with the head of confront the bear again and I said. Okay you and I are GonNa work out our feelings. We're going to record to work out different problems and low and behold now I really I really love it I love being here and people are so much more you know really more me really like more genuine and so yeah well. My husband just passed away and so it's kind of bittersweet but in some way I feel he's still with me and still with my kids and so I'll always stay here because I feel close to him being here in the bay area even when you think about leaving imagining an easier life that you might lead somewhere. That's cheaper less complicated less crowded. Something brings you back. I moved to Sacramento but I do come back to the bay all the time because my friends are here. We'll come here just to like have coffee or lunch with them. Rethink about relocating. But it's nothing like Dorothy says. Police like home in San Francisco our home. I mean I never really wanted to leave. And it's it's kind of like it's my home. That's what I love about it. There were a lot of responses that we didn't have time to include in the episode today words from Bart Lovers Bridge Lovers Bicycle Lovers even traffic lovers. We're going to keep the love fest going for the next few weeks sharing more tidbits from you at the end of upcoming episodes. If you've got a story to share about why you love the Bay Area.

"bay area." Discussed on Bay Curious
"The Bay area has gotten a lot of hate lately. Fox News did a five part series on how wretched it is here. Civilization itself is coming apart in San Francisco and are a few other recent headlines from the Mercury News Bay area. Traffic delays ranked second longest in nation from Bay area has the highest income inequality in California even are near and dear. Npr has come for us. San Francisco City streets strewn with trash needles and human feces. It's true the bay area has problems a lot of serious once but if we lose sight of what we're fighting for of what makes this place spectacular. Where does that leave US.
"bay area." Discussed on Scrubbing In with Becca Tilley

I was exit row and that's what people want. Nobody wants to sit in the middle of zero.

Yeah is how the things go yeah and and that's when the second not second date but this and when the day is happening and i told her i was. I think you should plan something q. So we're thinking about what could you play in. That's cute. Well turns out. Signore has some similar eating habits as myself yeah. He's like half yeah yeah like he eats click he. It's like he's. He's more human. He's more normal like he'll eat healthy but then like not healthy. You consider yourself human. I met normal not normally but yeah he eats healthy but then he'll like dabble in not healthy things. Some things like pickup sticks yeah which is as a what yeah yeah yeah something like that not to share everything that i'm doing for this man okay okay so she's planning something cute and she said head should i have some sweatpants at my house for him like if he eats too much like nothing worse than just like being in jeans when you're like sitting on the cat and i feel bad because whenever we're hanging out like i'm always in my cosies and he's like in jeans. You know that would that that would be so cute. I think okay so freak you out. No no no no you can meet like. I've never had that happened well. We found that we found like less abrasive racist way to do it which i think is. It's really good. You want to tell us what it yeah so i'm gonna order on amazon a pair for myself myself and then accidentally order a bigger pair and she's like oh my gosh why did amos on me. This is when i really just needed this size. Oh it would you. Would you like these. Would you wanna put these yeah so then. It doesn't feel like she's made a drawer for him or anything like i'm clearing out a drawer. Here's is your toothbrush and his name printed on this. It's like mom your autograph seniora butterfly across yeah yeah yeah yeah butterfly would be casino cool berry pants burn good way. Though don't you think i think it's a really good move. Thank you i if i was a single man in had been on a very chill date with someone thinking arousing. She'd given me sweat but i mean i think you could say like i got these for you. I don't think geico dislike go rogue. I mean maybe i'm the wrong here. I don't think you have to do the whole like accidentally got his. I think he just go. I had the i got these k- free and put them in the closet. That's our long lost her again because he's been over before and i have an opera them so it's been over before so there's there's a precedent set yeah. Hey you over before you didn't have here okay. I don't know i mean i don't wanna be responsible goes wrong. No you'll be responsible. I think you i think q. Accidentally they sit in bigger. He's still keeping it keeping a cool breezy. Your another guy lessons here. The last guy left these here. That's probably frowned upon to go that way. Yeah i think i think you to be honest. I think either you're brian. I think if anything he'll be like that's so nice and if you want to be more cool than you do it that way. It just depends on your vibe girl or cute girls. I i know and here's the thing though i'm not cool girls much as i tried to pretend like you should do the amazon thing and then later in the night. I have confess funding. That's actually a good geico and i feel like he has that sense of humor. Totally yeah okay. That's a good call great. Yeah glad that we got that sorted out yeah. Maybe you'll meet him this weekend. Don't get my hopes up like that can happen. Should we just plan on. Maybe running into each other at like you know a local restaurant fancy meeting you here we are. Don't you think it should be like a plan thing. It should be a planned thing okay. I'm down for that i would love to what are you doing this weekend. I don't have really any plans. It's labor. The thing with labor day is that i want to go to the beach or to a pool but all of my options are going to be so filled with people strangers and i don't get the thrill from that actually at all i get the opposite of a thrill a chill. Oh yes so where does that leave. You just like me and my home probably eh but i'd be down to like maybe i could. Maybe go to the beach like a beach day if we found some good open space do oh. I got that paul. Ryan gave me a birthday present. He got me like those chairs and like the whole setup. I should do that this weekend. <hes> so cute yeah. I'll look into that. Maybe i could in order some for myself. No there's like multiples. It's like it's like made for people like a partner perfect day. Eight-day wow all right well. Those love plans coming together like that. Should we all just wear sweatpants from amazon. Yeah okay to the beach yeah yeah. We have a fun episode because we have a mantle today and we ask you all to ask some questions that you need to know from some dudes. I haven't looked over them but they're always really good when we do. This perfect and it's always always stuff where i don't. I am happy to give my opinion but i don't feel equipped as i am not equipped with some things. A man may have like a penis yeah but that shouldn't it really you know i mean that makes a difference i think but also the way our brains work are very different front as we as we have discovered in other situations so i think it's fun to kind of open it up for girls to asking good advice from from the guy side. We're not no. I'm in and i'm just san's song. Song is yeah well. I just find it so funny because it's like we give all this advice but like we're just like i mean yeah i mean i mean i i don't i. I feel like i give wisdom. You think i guess what are these people who do those who can't do teach so like there's that we had a huge response from the headphones. You know people having your phone your oh. I don't think i i saw one message for you. That agreed with you and there was a couple idea to say. There were a few peppered in. I want to bring up something. I noticed before we got on the plane. We're waiting for the plane two board and there's a young lady cenex tiny and she had ear buds in and she had her like food on the chinese food and she's like oh yeah uh hi mom and she's like she did not want should not talk to him but i was like well. There's there's a data point right there. I mean it's there wasn't really much of an argument. It was more just it was hard for me to just watch tania's view get trampled like it did but it was kind of like a no-brainer that was like i've never seen response like that ever. I really truly hate. I don't hate admitting when you're right but like this one was just like it was pretty good pretty overwhelming like i got messages of people like it seemed a little bit infuriated that i even do that because it's like when i get on a plane and have my headphones in starts talking like i feel there's rage internally in on the outside and just like yeah that's cool. I get some of those. I did get some of those messages. I loathe people like you. It's like oh but then i got some from other people that said that they like lay. Seek out people like me so it's really just the coin toss but but if they're seeking someone out like you they're not wearing headphones. That's that's true but no i did get some. That's that they wear headphones because they are shy but it was very it was like two or three say two two or three three hundred and i said don't talk to me. Passionate response yeah was we actually have a really exciting guest. We we have grace vander all on the episode she is..
"bay area." Discussed on Bay Curious
"This is bay curious, the podcast where he answer questions about the bay area. But one question we've never really answered, what is the bay area. I'm a Yellen price here in studio with Jessica plot check. Hello. So we've received this question a lot over the years. It's a phrase you see, and you hear all the time bay area, but what does it mean? You know, having grown up in the bay area, Mike concept is kind of what they discuss on the news. The official definition is the nine county definition. That's Kristen Goldthorpe of Fremont. She asked a question and she asked it because she and her nephew chase Ostermann have been fighting about it or if you're in an area where you see saltwater taster that the area, if you have a bridge, if you get fog because fog is from the bay in that's bay area for chase, Pleasanton is not the bay area because you can't see the bay from there which some people would find really upsetting. Now chasing Kristen aren't the only people who disagree. I went to the San Jose farmer's market a little while ago and asked a bunch of people there how they. They define the bay area and I got a bunch of different answers. There is like the capitol for like politics and like new laws or things that are happening at the most technologically advanced city and probably civilization or has ever seen going up and Morgan hill, and nobody knows where Morgan hill is by always had this feeling like, hey, like we're, we're part of the beer you to like, we can't. I know we're just farms and stuff, but we count all the people and events that happened that thick dewine. Now, yet ten months can find how you did the Bay. I don't have any good answers. I don't know soon. You might know we'll see what we can find. Part of what makes defining the region hard is we have three central cities, right? Oakland, San Jose and San Francisco. But for some even those cities are questionable like my roommate doesn't count San Jose, the biggest city in the region because so far it's not a long barked. Her idea of the bay area and chase says that it should belong to another region. Silicon Valley. Silicon Valley is definitely in the bay area. Yeah. But data analysts do sometimes groups San Francisco and Oakland as a separate metro area from San Jose, then how should we be thinking about this? Let's start with when we first started using the term. References to the San Francisco Bay area. I started showing up in the early nineteen hundreds, although the borders weren't consistent and sometimes included Santa Cruz and San Joaquin counties during and after World War Two is the region was growing very quickly. And a lot of the industrial development of the region was happening along the bay shoreline. This is a gun Turpin the regional planning director at spur a bay area civic organization. He says urban planners during World War Two looked at the region as nine counties, and that definition stuck the nine county definition that's Alameda contra Costa Marin Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara Solano and son Noma who that's a lot to remember. So we made you a jingle. Dale. Good luck getting that out of your head today. These counties include one hundred one cities about seven thousand square miles, an estimated seven point seven million people. And while the nine counties is what regional agencies us, that's not the final word. There's no kind of perfect definition of what a region is, but it really depends what it is trying to define. The boundaries might come down to why you're looking at the bay area. We could look at how the bay area is experienced as this region has gotten exorbitantly expensive. People continued to move further out both within those nine counties and then to adjacent counties. If you look at a map of where people are commuting from, you'll see lots of people coming from Stockton, Modesto, even Santa Cruz and Sacramento, meaning they are part of the bay area of hybrid. But at a certain point, if we just keep. Expanding and expanding doesn't the term start to lose its meaning? I mean, how much can seven point seven million people really have in common good point. Often when people talk about the bay area, they're talking about a cultural place and it does get really interesting if we try to draw borders using culture. For example, let's try to define it by food. Here's grace. Chung of cake. UD's bay area bites. You have Californian cuisine, which could be farm-to-table, but then you also have a lot of people bringing cuisines from different countries. There isn't one distinct flavor where kind of defined by how diverse our food is true. Hey, but what about sports dump nation? Wherever you find Golden State Warriors fans, maybe that's the bad. I actually liked that one, but you can definitely find fans out in Fresno or even city. Okay. Well, what about our music. Lynch. I'm glad you asked there are loads of rappers like forty who shout out the bay area.
