"Lives for nursing homes. Researchers identified factors to explain what happened between May and August. Bruce Spurlock, a doctor who worked on the study, says the idea is to help skilled nursing facilities adapt to the next surge. The pandemic is really ripped open From vulnerabilities in a population that's extremely dangerous that something like this could go through very rapidly and ravage people that are near and dear to our hearts. I do think we're going back early on corporate run home some more cases and deaths than those run not for profit. Staffing is one factor they identified over time, he says it became clear that what county of facility is in matters When you're a nursing home in a community that has hydrates, it's a part of that community and the virus finds a way in and once it finds a way in then outbreaks are very challenging to get on top of nursing homes with more Latino and black residents have consistently seen more corona virus than the average Spurlock's team asked a group of advisers from academic types to people who run facilities and activists why that's happening, and nobody really knows, And that's kind of the part that we really need to figure out in Santa Clara County. More than 230. Residents and staff of nursing homes have tested positive for co bit in the last couple of weeks. It's one reason, health officials say they're implementing the states targeted health order early and it's why Bruce Spurlock says nursing homes need to change..

"And continuing to urge Democrats and Republicans in Congress together bipartisan stimulus compromise completed if possible. Before his January inauguration.

The recovery is slowing down so much soon it could be going backwards
"Can still be alarming. The problem is improvement in the job. Market is slowing way down. We were adding jobs twice as fast just a month earlier in october.

Coastal Carolina will play BYU after Liberty game canceled
"It's not offering you wake up on a thursday morning to news that a new game has been added to the schedule. And it's a really great game Coastal carolina was set to host game day this week and they were gonna play liberty which also been pretty decent game. Liberty unfortunately had a big code outbreak. They had to cancel her. Pull out and lo and behold coastal and byu together and made this contingency plan in now. Bruce we've got two undefeated teams meeting saturday new year six Implications you know i. I was not rooting for liberty to to get bad results by any means. You don't want anybody to to get covid. But the upshot of it is we actually got a better game. Yeah i think in some ways this as much as any game we've had kind of an capsule isas Pity misers twenty twenty college football season the fact that this game was basically thrown together in the last forty eight hours Dino have coaches from from byu who are basically doing a crash course study on coastal and now vice versa. It's happening and on top of it is probably the most interesting game of the of the weekend in were in early december. I was gonna say late november but yeah we're in early december late in the year and to me this is the most compelling matchup of the weekend

Orbits are roadways in space: Heres why you should care
"So you have nice explainer on how orbits working and you talk to one of these professors who called orbits roadways in space. I i like that. I like that idea. How does orbiting around the earth work in. How do scientists and engineers actually ensure something like a satellite maintains a stable orbit around us orbits. I think are under appreciated. What you might not realize spaces actually pretty close. It's only about sixty miles up. Which yeah okay. That's a lot but you know if you get in your car and drive sixty miles. It's not going to some entirely new zone in the universe right but space is very different. It turns out the hard part about space is not getting up sixty miles. It's getting so that you're moving. Horizontally fast enough to stay in orbit. You come right back but if you go horizontally fast enough you stay in orbit. And that's where that roadways in space comment is germane because what it means. Basically you're going fast enough that you don't fall down and hit the earth you don't go you stay up there and it's it's pretty neat. There's some atmospheric drag but mostly if you put a satellite in orbit it just keeps whizzing around the earth. And that's pretty remarkable one of the actually. I was researching this story. What am i. The my favorite parts of it was looking at what is called newton's cannonball so isaac newton right gravity lights l. This stuff back in the sixteen hundreds he had actually a really good thought experiment that reveals a pretty clear way. How orbits work. he said. Imagine you're up at the of a very high mountain and you shoot a canon ball horizontally now if you shoot it. With a certain speed goes near flies a little ways and plops down hits. The earth fired a little harder. It goes farther and it's the earth but if you fire it at just the right speed the gravity that pulls the cannonball down exactly balances the curvature of the earth so it just keeps on going around the earth now and the real world. That's not possible because during the mountains. High enough in there's a resistance and all that kind of thing but it still shows. I think pretty elegantly. What in orbit is it's this balance of of an object spacecraft falling down because of gravity but also moving horizontally fast enough that it that it keeps on going around earth in in an orbit. Well that's an interesting trick because you talk about moving horizontally at the right speed. When i see rockets launched their. They're launching up vertically right not not horizontally. So how do you get from that. Tremendous bruce up vertically to a point where it goes horizontal and stable enough to actually maintain its orbit chirp. This is one of the tricks of rocket. Rocketry says why when people talk about rocket science. It's not easy right rockets. Actually almost immediately start turning sideways right after launch so at launch they go up and they use a lot of fuel to go up but the majority of the fuel they use is to go sideways so when you watch space shuttle or space x or any of these rockets you'll note that it starts tipping over towards the east usually and it tips over more and more and more and more. If you watch a spacex launch they actually have a very nice Three d computer view that shows the track of the rockets and you can see that very rapidly. It's going sideways more than it's going up. So the vast majority of the energy needed to put a rocket into orbit is pushing it sideways. Not up if you look at some of these rockets like new shepherd from blue origin. Jeff bezos says rockets startup. Those just go up and down. And that's actually a lot easier than going sideways. Which is what spacex does when it gets a satellite into orbit or in iss launch capsule with some astronauts in it. It's a lot harder to go sideways. Yeah you know you talk about this rocket science. This is not easy stuff calculating you know when it needs attorney or how it gets to the pre velocity. It actually maintains or like. How difficult is that to calculate. It's pretty difficult and you. It's not just the calculation it's also the execution so you have to steer the rocket and what you have to realize about a rocket is. It's you're sitting on top of a controlled explosion so you can think of something like unisom. Tnt blowing up or something. It's catastrophic huge release of energy. A rocket is the same kind of thing. It's a chemical explosion and you just control it just enough that the thrust in one direction. So it's pretty hard to get this balanced just right. It's easier these days because you have advanced. Computers have accelerometers all over the place that no just exactly how much thrust is pointing which direction and you have radar tracking stations that can give lots of details about the launch. So it's easier than it was gonna by apollo missions fifty years ago or something like that but yeah it's still hard.

Halting the Holiday Hustle by Rose Lounsbury
"Altering the holiday hustle by rosebery of rose lounge buried dot com. If you enjoy the alliteration the title this post as much as i do. Give me a digital fist-bump english nerds unite. But i digress. Haven't even really started yeesh. Today's topic is the season that is upon us. You've seen the wreaths and the stores heard the beginning strains of those old familiar tunes. And maybe vince bruce. W behavior to ensure top spot on santa's coveted nice list. The s midst of time again and with that comes the inevitable holiday hustle. Marta least we seem to think it's inevitable. In america we go from store to store buying trinkets for loved ones and glittery decor of our homes. We bake we send cards. We are in a bit of do-goodery after all it is the season for giving we feel an obligation to squeeze in at least one act of goodwill toward men amongst the holiday parties and tinsel and above all we try to make memories those indelible treasures that last long for the trees on the curb and the last bits of shiny paper find their way to the trash. The trouble is all this holiday. Hustle often isn't available in fact. It's worse than that is downright stressful recreate so much anxiety. About having a good time enjoying the holidays we often fail to do. Just that the irony again. English nerds correctly used literary term fist-bump. This is on my mind today because my friend. Michelle recently posted this on facebook quote. I've been thinking about christmas cards this week specifically about not doing them for the first time ever. I love christmas cards. My joy sending them in receiving them. I have fun selecting a design but every year. They are source of some stress for me. What photo will we use. Do we take our owner higher photographer. How will find the time to get them all done. We typically sent around two hundred. I've also been thinking a lot about time and how we spend it very recently of known or heard of several young people who have passed away in their thirties and knowing this has been an important reminder to treasure each day in the people. I love for the gifts. They are some thinking. No christmas cards this year. I'm not saying i won't do them again. But who knows maybe not thinking that we will donate the money. We save children's charities more time for our family money to charities and less cards in the trash. This really is a tough decision for me breaking away from the tradition in the ritual of taking the time. Send something personal in the mail. That is why. I'm putting it out here so i can hold myself accountable to my choice and quote. Michelle received some very interesting comments from request to not join the anti christmas movement to light hearted individuals who wanted to halt the crazy holiday hustle and actually enjoy the season of love and giving which got me thinking to eat all feel this way about the holidays secretly for example of notice that my mom love you. Mom sometimes seems a bit stressed about baking holiday. Cookies mom if you're reading this and i know you are because you're one of those awesome moms who actually read her grown daughters blog about minimum. I wanna say this. We don't come to your house for the cookies while they are delicious. We come to see you to love you to enjoy the season of giving because we are lucky enough to be with those we love. If it stresses you out. Skip the baking all of you just as much over a package of holiday themed us. In fact i'm inordinately curious to find out if the red holiday filling tastes different from the everyday white thereof. Said it mom. You're off the hook for the cookies. If you want to be note this does in no way apply to the anchovies spaghetti. You make for christmas eve. That stays the holiday. Hustle stress stems entirely from the expectations. We put on ourselves. No one else really expects us to have the best lighting display in the neighborhood or fill each of our children stockings with themed presents. We expect that of ourselves so my suggestion. This holiday season is. Let's give ourselves a break. Just say no to. The hustle ignored the stores of you. Want to don't bake unless it brings you joy forgo the holiday cards unless licking two hundred envelopes as your idea of a good saturday night please. No i am sarcastic. But my don't judge my flaked my fair share of holiday card envelopes and may well do so again this year. What do i propose instead of being a straight up holiday hustler. Do something you love. Spread some joy. That's what the season is all about. Greet your neighbors with cheerful smile. And hello surprise them by shoveling the driveway when they're not looking note to my neighbors your totally welcome to fulfil your need for cheerful giving in this fashion and i promise to act very very surprised. Spend your baking time selecting and donating non-perishable goods for local food pantry. Better yet do that with your kids have a holiday movie marathon with your friends and copious amounts of holiday snack. Ary basically teacher self imposed expectations. And just do whatever truly brings you joy this holiday season now view. Excuse me. I'm off to buy a package of holiday oreos. I believe they're already on the shelves
College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court
"I on thursday. Tupper beat six rate. Kansas ninety awesome performance and then on friday afternoon mark to the gonzaga coach. Confirm that the zags beat auburn on friday morning. Nine hundred sixty seven after a player believed to be julian straw. They're tested positive for covid. Nineteen so norlander. We're gonna get into next credible opening week on the court second. But let's start here where you surprise in an auburn still played on friday after a gonzaga player test positive. I was surprised because my opinion is that if other teams and i'm not saying all other teams but many other teams were in that situation. The game would not have been played in my opinion. If gonzaga ran into the issues it ran into and it was playing in belleville. gonzaga would not have played. It's game on friday. Gonzaga might not have even played a game against kansas or fill in the other opponent again. If you put it in. And i'm i'm speaking from what i'm seeing here and the protocols and everything that goes into place to even holding this in the state of connecticut okay. Gonzaga had a member of its travel party test positive on thursday gonzaga took two different planes to the event specific and has taken two different buses. It's it's doing specifically to guard against this. But obviously there is no full on guarding against this so we played kansas. And we'll get but then you know at least one player as positive another believed to be The players roommate is kept out as a precautionary reason. And the game goes off because and you can speak to a gp. Frankly we'll we'll get to virginia san francisco the minute but i was i was. I was watching that game. So i didn't hear fuse press conference. I've seen some of what he said. They're the relying on the florida health officials as being the ones that were to clear it and the health officials down there made that determination and it might wind up that that determination is going to be okay in the end. But i've received four text messages from coaches to heads to assistance. All of them basically asking why in the hell is gonzaga in auburn. Being allowed to play right now one of them saying if this was us there is no shot in hell that we would have been able to play and so this this is certainly captured. A little bit of attention around the college basketball world understandably so gonzaga's looked awesome. But you can make an easy argument that it that it should not have a have played the game. What are your thoughts. And then what can you share for the listeners. That might not have seen a about what few said in his postgame. Zoom press conference. Okay so mark was clearly asked about it and he said he kept it very simple. He's did we followed turns guidelines not we tournament guidelines were were in place and established. We had this positive test. And then we follow the guidelines and then the florida health officials came in and they contact tracing how they contact tracing. They told us we were okay. We were cleared to play and we play. He kept it. He didn't really expand anymore than that but listen. They didn't do anything illegal. They possibly did something irresponsible but didn't do anything illegal. They didn't act in defiance of the tournament or florida. Health officials noted that florida as a state hasn't taken covid nineteen that seriously to begin with. So what florida. Health officials were okay. Where quite clearly would be the same thing that said california. Health officials are okay. Wis lucky if they wanted to play the game. They're lucky they were in florida as opposed to to somewhere else. And you're exactly right. It's bubble ville or in south dakota. I don't believe this game would have been played. Wichita state got sent home from south dakota because they had maybe a couple of people in the travel and party test positive. They were like okay. Get outta here. You're not playing today. you're not playing tomorrow. you're not playing it off. So i don't know that this game would have been played if it were a tournament. Where you're at or in south dakota but because this was sort of a thing they put together in fort myers as long. Auburn was cool to play and gonzaga wanted to play. they were allowed to pluck. I though was surprised that the game went off. Because i mean we've seen baseball teams. Get shut down over one positive test during the major league baseball season the world series if it would have if the dodgers did not win the game justin turner had to be removed because they got a positive test back of the game so they take justin turner around. They complete that game. The understanding was that game. Seven of the world series would not have been the following night. They would not have played until everybody can test test test for a few days and they make sure it's safe to play and so yes. I was surprised that they played the game. And hopefully nothing comes from it that it doesn't end up being a quote unquote superspreader of it. Because if we an outbreak now at gonzaga because by the way gonzaga tweet video from the locker room after the victory over kansas and they're all celebrating no mask jewish authors in front of mark. Few right in the middle of the celebration. He is believed to be the one who test positive. So hopefully nothing comes of this but if we have a subsequent outbreak at gonzaga or subsequent at auburn gonzaga is going to become the biggest story in college basketball. And it's not going to be a sports story anymore. It won't be because jalen suggs looks. Incredible it'll be because they knew they positive test in their locker room and they played less than twenty four hours putting their players at risk and the auburn players at risk. I hope it doesn't come to that. But if it comes to that this becomes a bigger story than just to college basketball story. It becomes something that's on. Cbs evening news. Yeah we'll wait and see if that does happen. I mean auburn's gotta be you know held equally responsible and all of this because it opted to play the game regardless you know there was no self imposed penalty here. Handed down by bruce pearl. That was not in play on friday and so inherently like. You know the chances. Go up that you're going to potentially be infected. We don't know but it's clearly out there. I mean there are. There are no shortage of schools and athletic directors coaches. Just straight up would not play the game. So we'll wait arizona. State would not play baylor because the baylor coach tested positive. Not even a player who was who was gonna who was on the court with other players twenty four hours earlier right and that came from that even came from above. Bobby's hurley's bobby hurley's had which is the case in a lot of these instances but frankly what gonzaga auburn decided to do it. Just flies in the face of convention in college sports in professional sports that we've seen and we'll will you know we're recording this on friday afternoon. We'll wait and see what's going to happen here. Gonzaga's got some high profile games ahead and we're really enough one of them's blade baylor like if there's if there's one team that's actually going to be good with this like it's baylor. They might just play the game regardless. But we'll wait and see if either of these teams are now forced because if it gets another positive one after that like they have no choice. They're going to have to shut down for two weeks and then ask themselves if playing against auburn was really worth it you know. Was it worth it. Because now you're gonna lose these other games

An Election 2020 Conversation
"Low end. Welcome to another edition of us bruce. None kilter conversation about what's happening in asia america which includes the white house. I'm bill you. And i'm jeff yang and yes. The white house got a little bit less white over the last couple of days. We are exhausted. We are mentally physically may even spiritually very very tired. All of us as americans i think. But we're also tonight kind of exultant and sitting the essentially the stoop of history. So we thought it'd be a fantastic opportunity for us to just get our thoughts out there with some are are close closest friends in just smartest hot takers. That could actually reach out to We want to welcome to the podcast to talk about the election election. Twenty twenty gen fang Friend of ours. Friend of the show blogger behind the appropriate and aisha sultan who is a syndicated columnist based at the st louis post dispatch and just as personal round many many different hyphen. Tash her. i walked thank you so much. Thanks for having me on for the very first time now. Welcome and thank you much for having me two guys. Welcome back your back boy. So okay so this one this episode together pretty quickly because you know. We woke up this morning to some major news and after the shock of that and are quick twitter takes. I texted jaffna like yo. I think we got record episode tonight. So let's get some smart people on and let's let's do this so smart people welcome. What were your respective first thoughts when you heard the news and let's be honest here we've been we've been all just far too far out on that limb of wondering whether or not the future of our republic was strong aisha I mean how did it feel. What did you feel so I'm a public writer In writing in a red state. I'm in missouri and i write too frequently Ideas and things that challenge a lot of my readers here Humanely disagreed little Some of the things. I have to say and ever since the last election cycle the response to a lot of where i wrote got much more personal much more bigoted. Much more violent nasty. I think you know all all of us probably experienced that to some extent but And you know we're used to as journalists public writers. We're used to harsh criticism but it felt very different and I feel like i did take an emotional toll on me. And i felt like for the i. Guess almost five years because it started before the last election I feel like. I was really questioning whether the work i did even mattered. I was wondering if truth even mattered in this country. I wondered if people even had enough empathy to care about the stories. I was telling and honestly jeff i was ready to Look for different job or do something different. If this election it turned out differently. I had thought this all through. Because i didn't see any meaning in it and so there is so much and beyond being a muslim woman. A brown woman a south asian woman and mother I just felt like there was so much personally writing on his election for me. And so when i heard that it was official they called it. i don't know that i could even intellectually process that moment because there was such a physiological flood of emotion in my body.

Correct me opened friday october thirty and i just actually went to an in person screaming anna the only playing the film in california in person and it was being sold out screening. What is sold out mean. These days sold out at like twenty five percent capacity every other seat every other row. Now we were in With a two hundred and forty five person capacity theaters so the game is really big theater. Packet out as much as you could. During ninety five percent of the people were actual like extended family members of mealy gotta show strong so this is actually the core of the documentary. It's not just about donuts. It's actually about a community and i. It's fantastic by the way Literally it was. It was such a engrossing Story to watch. That not only did make me incredibly hungry but it may be hungry for knowledge. It's inspiring it's inspiring had inspiring about the story and inspiring our hunger for donuts so it basically tells the story about how it is that cambodian americans ended up essentially dominating the donut trade in southern california. Is that right else. Yeah it's some people make casually now. Asian people work at my local donut shop. When you know in doing this film. I've talked to people. And when i told them working on newly i thought it was just to own mind donut shop when i go to michael time. I didn't realize it's like all of them.
They Call Us Chinatown Pretty
"Hello and welcome to another edition of they call Bruce Non filtered conversation about what's happening in Asia America I'm bill you and Jeff Yang, and this week we have a very special set of guests who are the authors, the creators of a very, very special book when his right in. The heart bone. Shall we say? It is a book called Chinatown Pretty. It is a book of incredible photographs and some just lovely words celebrating the elders who Don't just make up a the generation, the greatest generation of our community but who? Make. It beautiful with their very presence? So. We left a welcome to they cost Bruce. Valerie Lou in. Andrea Lo. Thank you guys so much for joining us. Thanks for having US have come. You guys have put together a really great project. Know it started off as kind of a Website Project And then is now an a full-fledged published book. It's Chinatown Pretty. Is Just A. Really. Great tribute to Chinatown Elders grandmas and GRANDPAS, but it hits on a very specific. Aesthetic. A fashion aesthetic. I think what's really great about is that you've taken sort of the The the style photography mold and apply to kind of the more most unlikely subjects I think. People who are very special in our community so Maybe, you guys could describe actually what is Chinatown Pretty Yeah. This is Valerie Chinatown pretty as a style that's common and chinatowns across North America It's really a patchwork of different. Eras right close from Hong Kong? They've had for thirty years mixed with like say supreme hat that they got from who knows where? A lot of colors. A lot of patterns sometimes I, four shades of pink or four different floral patterns in one outfit. And that's about keeping warm mostly So you could have a big puffy jacket but also keeping the sun out at the same time. So really white built a hats. I love that description just viscerally but I think for people who have not seen your blog and the book itself. Just a little bit more kind of literal color around that. So. When we talk about transparency pretty we're talking about people who are usually immigrants for immigrants who but who have lived here a while and who have. Synthesized a look and the fascinating thing is the look is different from person to person but somehow it all still fits this mold of Chinatown pretty it blends Western clothing it blends. Traditional clothing from. Historical closets as it were. Sometimes across gender lines. It's often incredibly colorful like you said, is layered it's branded, but it's also unique like there's a signature to how people. In that generation dress that feels so much more vibrant than you know those of us, who are I mean in in quarantine were like the sweatpants anyway. But I guess, what was it? That first struck you about the look of Of these elders and kind of lead you to coin the term and decided to actually explore it photographic in words. Yeah. This is Andrea I'm I'm the photographer behind the project and I think we would. have. Known each other for. Several years now, and we would hang out in Chinatown get dim sum and just people watch in the park. And that press was really fascinating Chinatown I feel like has some of the best people watching and I think what we? Both intuited without really realizing why is that? A lot of the outfits we would see on the senior so people sixty five and plus. They there's all this history woven into their outfits I think. For us we might think, oh, it's like this vintage jacket from the seventies but you know for them it's like close. It had ended preserved for decades. Mixed with with newer Chinatown fines and let the handmade clothing as well. So there's so much. Shown in one outfit it's like there's a lot you can extract from it, and so we were really curious about you know. Not only like where did you get these cool shoes but also yeah, how did this? Is just such A. Look in. So we're really curious. About the stories and the people behind it and so that's that was sort of the seed of. What led us to investigate.
John Gorman Discusses the Use of Opportunity Zones to Address Social Determinants
"Welcome to the healthcare policy podcast on the host. David. Intra Cosso. During this podcast saw discussed efforts to address social determinants of health with John Gorman chairman of the nightingale partners and founder and former Executive Chairman of Gorman Health Group. John Welcome to the program. Thanks David. Great to be here. especially with another native DC guy here most welcome John's by is, of course, posted on the podcast website. Briefly on background, the ongoing covid nineteen pandemic has exposed. The country's failed to adequately address the social determinants of health. Generally defining health access and quality education, economic circumstances, food security, social conditions, and environmental factors. It is estimated that where people live work and socialize determines as much as sixty percent of their health status. Whereas formal medical care accounts for just ten percent. For example concerning. Circumstances forty years of wage stagnation among lower income earners has left forty five percent of working age Americans. With either no health care insurance for insurance without a pocket expenses so high. They avoid sinking care went for example, they developed covid nineteen related symptoms. Healthcare policy makers have slowly begun to take an interest in addressing sto ages as a way to improve health delivery by increasing increasing appropriate utilization and reducing costs. For example, Medicare, advantage plans which enroll more than one third of all Medicare beneficiaries have recently been given regulatory authority to offer Ma benificiary supplemental benefits beyond medical care such as mail deliveries, home modifications, and Personal Care Services. With beginning, discuss, addressing, social determine, specifically use of what are termed opportunities zones. Again. John Gorman. So Jon with that as background. Louis. Begin by asking if you could provide a brief overview of nightingale. Sure David Nangle partners is one of these weird opportunities zone funds that came out of trump's big tax giveaway bill It was actually Cory Booker's program that was designed to encourage investment in real estate and disadvantaged communities and I was sitting on my ass retired last spring and got a notification that the irs had just completely revamped the rags to allow opportunities own capital to be used not just for real estate investment. But also for leases one portly for working capital or for meeting the business requirements of a new company inside one of the nine thousand roughly nine thousand opportunities zones around the country and those opportunities owns David are all. Severely, economically disadvantaged and more importantly medically underserved, and because the irs allowed now opportunities own capital to be used for working capital for meeting business requirements. That's what opened the door to allow us to use opportunities on Capitol to make large scale investments in social determinants of health intervention. So nightingale partners with insurers with health systems with large medical groups to finance design launch, and where necessary execute on our goals to improve. The quality of care for vulnerable populations. In this country, a lot of people like to say and I love it that we packed a Republican billionaire tax shelter in order to improve care for black drought people on that gets me up every morning. Sir Thank you. So this as you noted, this was a provision in the December seventeen tax bill. Specifically page one, hundred, and thirty. This was picked up this previous legislation as you noted, that as you mentioned senator from New Jersey Cory Booker but also the South Carolina African American Republican, the only one Tim Scott. So this is picked up in the tax bill previous legislation and you mentioned the nine thousand. So these are census tracts that meet this low income community criteria wrote and then explain to me. Governors than have to select a discrete number. That could benefit from this. Tax Advantage program is that correct doubts correct and there was a little bit of mischief but some of the governors in the designation of some of those areas and there's been, you know some gamesmanship with this story like you know Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey is. Used an opportunity zone fund open up frigging LAUNDROMAT. In Asbury, Park with Bruce, springsteen cats not the kind of stuff that we do. I'm not surprised to hear that I guess the former governor is a is obsessed with. Mr Asbury Park and again just so on. Understand better more clearly, this is the tax advantage here is that by investing the capital gains on your investment, you can avoid paying the. Twenty three percent the capital gains tax and that basically. Sure go ahead, go ahead. Well, basically, the way it works is that if you invest money or capital gains in and opportunities zone and you leave it in for at least ten years, not only is the initial investment completely tax free but then all of the proceeds that you make on that investment are completely tax free. So high net worth individuals. And family offices large corporations the generate large amounts of capital gains love this program, and indeed it opened up about six point two trillion dollars in available capital based on the amount of capital gains that we generate in our economy. So of that amount, David Roughly a hundred billion dollars has been invested thus far into opportunities zones off. The roughly eight months programs operate.
They Call Us We Bare Bears
"Hello and welcome to another edition of they call us Bruce and unfiltered conversation about what's happening in Asia America. I'm bill you. And I'm Jeff Yang and we are so incredibly pleased tonight to have with us a very special guest, a friend of ours, a friend of the PODCAST and a brilliant animation creator. That's kind of a big drum roll right now who's it going to be? But I'm here to tell you that it is in fact, Daniel Chong the creator of we bear bears one of our favorite animated series Daniel welcomes the fogcast. Welcome. Thank you for that intro. Man I don't know what to do with that that. Good now. All right. No for real. Huge. Admirers of yours and big fans of of we bear bears I've you know as much as possible I've I've kept up with it given. The fact of the world is basically a rolling apocalypse I'd. Things things we've your bears are the things that make life feel less like a total and utter shit show. And I will say We're particularly excited because we have the chance to actually take a look at the. We are bears movie, which is sort of like an exclamation point on the series and it was fantastic. I mean I have so many things to ask about say about it especially the fact that it feels like. I don't want to say this to overstate this in some ways, but it feels Kinda like an important movie in ways that I will elaborate. Thank you perfect for twenty twenty I'll say that But let's begin actually Daniel. By talking about how this got started in I mean for those of you who have not yet watch, we bear bears. It actually began as a web comic called the bear bears right. Three bear bears right shortly there and tells how that where that came from and I guess how this how this turned into. What it is today. Yeah It was a web comic that I had created it. You know I was working in the industry in the animation industry ad. I just wanted to make my own thing. And at the time you know people are posting things on blogs and stuff. So I created this comic on my own called three bear bears is kind of a play on Goldilocks, three bears and so Yeah it was. It was a comic that It was very like free for me. I. Didn't like really right out anything ahead of time I just kind of like A. Free associated as I was drawing it and nobody read it and nobody cared and just completely I remember going onto comic forums and trying to post it like, Hey, guys check this out in like nobody wanted to talk to me on forum. So it was just like. But but the thing is I was already working. So it's not like it was so debilitating. What was it? The only thing I had? It was just You know it is it is that was just it was my outlet that my special hobby I guess at the time. So but as I was in the animation industry working as a story artist for about ten years run by fifth year I was starting to get antsy I just wanted to create my own things. So I started taking these comics different ideas that I had started just flushing them out into pitches into stories and or. TV shows, and that's where three bears became weaver bears. I got to change that title for legal reasons apparently. Some what's called a some company owned I think there were a taxidermy company, they own something similar. So. You know now the title really means nothing at it makes no sense but it's So. Yeah. We're not responsive opportunity right there if you. Off. So. When you when you came up with this for the idea when he became a cartoon a series, like what were the kind of the things that you were like how did you pitch it honestly when I tried tried to explain this series to people who've never seen it? Yeah. It's kind of a weird thing to try to like I like the concept is such a It's so simple and yet it. So it's too simple in a lot of ways. Yeah and then trying to explain to the emotional complexity of is difficult. You know. I think the pitch itself was was. The visuals help a lot. I'm not just pitching words so. I think there are two things that were very crucial to well, maybe three. Crucial things to the the Bible ever the pitch that I did that help sell at one was the visual of stack these three bear stack them each other which you know I it was a very iconic thing in the comic and that was definitely the thing carried into the pitch, and so you know I pretty much started off the Bible by showing this image of the three bears together. So it just. kind of it's sort of just evokes a very strong image up the top. The second image that I put in the Bible was an image of the three bears mingling at a party with a bunch of Humid's holding like cups at a party and nobody is freaking out by them. They're just all mingling together as if they're like, you just talking about the weather or something like that, and that was another like. Important image to kind of sell here's the joke. Is that these three years nobody freaks out when they see them they're just one of you guys except there bears. So that was the other really important image to sell this project

"Right let's get back to it. Tony Cologne Riazan. What are your thoughts on the Raven character especially his. Ac W do you think that his running wbz could have been handled better if they would have given him similar creative? I think if it had been new maybe I think that the Raven character when it was introduced in two e c from day. One was intriguing as hell. I thought it was great and there was a mystique about it by the time that they had done all their Chris. Fish crucifixion angles. And it had gotten as dark as had gotten. I think it'd counter run. Its course in just didn't think that and just really didn't think it fit and It was great it was a great character for EC. W and they did well with it but beyond that. I don't know that it really fit any other company and that was. I don't know that Scott was always As quick to want to modify that character to to make a change in he did that off of how well it worked in DC. W When I came in because it was unique it was different and I thought it was cool. Shit in the beginning Michael Scott Fairy rights. And I can't remember if you discuss this but I listened to recording the steroid trial transcripts on. I believe it's fences attorney. Laura Brady who uses the phrase rumor and Innuendo rumor and innuendo multiple? Times is your use of rumor and Innuendo a nod to Vince his attorneys. That is a fun question. I guess we've ever really dug into before as that That maybe where you first heard that phrase no. I don't ever remember hearing it. I know I've maybe I did subconsciously. But now ruined innuendos just yet hit with it so much that people read shit of false reporting all this other bullshit. I mean that's a phrase. You Know Reverend in Iran though yeah. It's just something that that you get hit with a lot when you look at something that somebody says some teams. That's a fucking rumor or they the innuendo oven. It's just crazy.

Does the road that death the roles could ride down into the dusty road of the destiny of industrial dodge singer. At saying how how micromanage this TV Could you still go off script and get away with it? Or is it a case of future endeavors and I'm sure this comes from You and I have discussed before when there was a professional rivalry between triple h and the Rock and he gave the advice to the rock rock. It's live TV and it was just sort of understood with the Lincoln and now I'd go get over as dusty used to say something like that still exist or it's just different time and place now I think it does. I think that there is that opportunity in what I mean by that. Is You take the opportunity where you're out on live television and everything is live now so go out and get over go out and make whatever material and whatever opportunity you're given making your own to make it the very best it can be go get over four last ones here.

They stepped up and they go In your opinion what gimmicks from the past could work today as a reboot dog decline on be fucking phenomenal Sometimes it's it's easier as you look back to to say what wouldn't work. I don't think brother love would today. I don't think that in this PC climate in which we live that that kind of edginess and he really wasn't that edgy. I mean I guess when you look back. It might be a little edgy. But they were different times. I'm not sure that that could work today. And I'm not sure that people would gravitate so much to a Papa Shangluo or even a definitely the I'm trying to get the fucking like the T. L. hoppers occupation Matrix gimmicks.

Could you imagine you know dentist Gimmick in things like that Dr Isaac Gangnam that but it could work? I love for that. A ski from moving here Another fun question. Last one from Charlie this way. He writes Who has the bigger fear Yoko of Andrea snakes or Bruce of pickles? Oh God bruce a tick i. It's fear so hatred as I am not afraid that pickles gonNA attack me or anything. I just don't WanNA smell. Cnn or touching yeah. It's funny because a lot of the barbecue places in Alabama they will bring you like Put Sauce on on your order if you get a plate as they call it and then over in the corner sometimes they'll put like some Coleslaw. Maybe a half a scoop or something and then a couple of pickles is like garnish almost and even though you would say no pickles. Occasionally they would put pickles on yours. Straighten trash yeah. It's disgusting not matter of fact my son and I went out to eat the other day and got an Eye Talian sub. Now you read everything that's on the sub and it tells you everything that's on it. One thing doesn't say this honors pickles and there were no pickles on the sub self however being an Italian Deli man they brought out a fucking pickle spear on the side of the plate and I immediately like took my fork inflicted off on the canes play and now his reaction was fear tax rates yet when he hates pickles to he's not fond of them but then but then you'd have to get the Napkin and you have to soak up all the Jews so the pickle. It's gross man. Pickle juice grosses nothing good about pickles. I should be. They should be outlawed. Awful Jesse writes in. Do you think when Vince McMahon eventually passes away hopefully one hundred years from now that he would wanna turned into a storyline. Somehow wow that's that's a good one. Probably not no. I think that would in his mind. I bet you that he would probably just want to go away. And have everything. Go on without missing a beat Mayhem rights on the rare occasions. Maybe family vacation. Is there a time when Vince is thinking about business? What does he do for fun? Does he have a hobby? Does he collect anything? What NON-BUSINESS SUBJECT? Would Vince ever talk about loves to work out? Get a pump on his. Do Sir well Pope you've got. It's funny then because you guys have nothing in common with him just wrestling working out..

I think that I've taken away from the whole experience. The last ask fifteen years and driven partly by Jesse's podcast and a whole bunch of other things is just a great number of Bruce Friends. We have both locally and around the world I mean we're going to the rolling stones show tonight here in Houston. Last night I hung out with the one of my best friends who have met from Bruce. Shows got friends in Chicago and Dallas Fort Worth and Portland in Sweden and all over the place and it's from traveling around and meeting people people who all have the same obsession with just a great time good music a great story songs that means something and I've I've been blessed to be able to do that the last few years and look forward to a big tour next year and seeing some of our friends as we go around the world. It's been enjoyable beyond just as podcast a couple couple of times.

Bruce has just been the basis of all my music listings and listen to a lot of that Brian Koppelman podcast and almost every person comes on there. That's a music person talks about how Bruce Bruce inspired them so it's not just normal fans but it's the other people who are really really talented as well the look on his work so we've been blessed to live in his era. like a younger lady told me when we were seen the rolling stones in Chicago last month you guys have all the good music and when you think about it we really have been blessed Rolling Stones and Beatles Bruce and and who and a million other bands and people that are in their forties or go on we don't have any of those good names and it's been enjoyable and afford to tour and twenty twenty and seeing all of you out on the road have a great day hi my my name is Karen Akers Semi K Barton. I currently in in Australia but I'm orig- originally from England northwest. Nice cars to England plays Co Blackpool for me. My junior into discovering Bruce springsteen started with Patti Smith. I bought her album eastern. In of course Patty imbros collaborated on because the night back in the day when we listen to vinyl we could read the record sleeve unlearn about the artists read the lyrics etcetera so intrigued when I realized Bruce Springsteen career written because the night I started to explore Hubris springsteen was the first opportunity I had had to attend a live concert with may nineteen eighty-one Manchester Apollo the original river tall that leg of the toll was of course we rescheduled from March to May as Bruce got sick and needed some time off anticipation had been building building and building a sense of disappointment when it was rescheduled but then may finally came by the time the Shari had had arrived. I bought the back Catalogue of Bruce Final on was well and truly bruce springsteen being fanatic river tall had been in full swing across the USA your since nineteen eighty all the music papers. I was reading Dan anime sounds record mirror were full of reviews detailing the energy the power the fools the rock and roll that is Bruce springsteen and the e street band Manchester Paulo came alive that night fairly eight years ago we were. We really prepared for what we witnessed. I'm not too sure we were bruce. Commended the stage the ban the music on us the fans from the very minute. He stepped on the foot of his platform Bruce Letters. There's through stories of his childhood. He's adolescence. His relationships Gordon bad he led us through the difficult times and happy at times. We sang along along. We screamed shouted clapped Fist Punch. The air we cried laugh danced in Hong off every word every chord what's every riff and every one two three four it was without doubt the best thing I'd ever witnessed. It wasn't adjusted. Music was the honesty in which bruce and the e street band perform. It's the generosity of their time their engagement in connection action with those the songs the sentiments the stories Roberta's we've lived stars lives of difficult relationships of hard work disadvantage segregation love and loss. Yes we relate we connect we understand there were sparks out on the streets of of Manchester for that night that night the shore what else can I say but thank you bruce and the East street band and a happy seventieth birthday to the man who has that special magic trick that can fails all logic where one plus one equals three. Hey Bruce Edrich Haski here in Madison New Jersey congratulations on reaching seventy and also on the new album another record with a new sound love at all but especially that first song attacking you know me but you've been running along with me and my family for a long while been with us for a lot of fun trips but also some unexpected detours and over some rough highways highways.

In search away from that poignant went either one appeal of course not downhill with the Bruce Addiction did <hes> how did you did you just start going getting one release at a time or how to feed that <hes> addiction or obsession down how you WANNA call it right. Yeah might be an addict. I'm not even sure what yeah I guess it's an addiction. It started off of course with the D._V._d..
