"We provide program benefits for and we we We basically link up with all these cities and create a website for each of them that were trying to consolidate onto one site. My house keys dot com So stay with us as we way just try toe. You know, as any new organization, we were started in 2015 and really came out of the aftermath of a lot of the nonprofit agencies that folded in sad Clair County. And so we're a staff made up of former nonprofit executives, nonprofit workers. Private sector workers that counted came over and formed house keys to really do it another way about I would say a better way and more efficient way to try to get to the scale. I think we haven't had to get to in the past and that's a lot of what I talked about before the break is that, you know. Populations in need. When people say affordable housing the immediate ideas that pop into their head are, you know, welfare and food stamps and And, um And Section eight. And so the issue with that Association is one. It's wrong, but then I think to its its makes it their problem. It's kind of over there those people type of thing, and it's never really ever been that. No, It's always been something that you'd be completely surprised to understand that it's relative to your county. First of all, so somebody earning $40,000 year 7 $60,000 a year is a family of three. Let's say I'm a single Parent. I have two kids at home, making $60,000 a year. Right, and I live in Santa Clara County. Well, you're a very low income household. Right? If I'm making $52,000 a year in that same situation, I'm in Contra Costa County. I'm a very low income household. Right. So $50,000 here, meaning median income. The average income in our median income in California is closer to that number. You guys have to think about, you know just how How this group of folks is no longer a over their problem. Right. It's not over their problem. We've got whole families in California. The median income is $82,000 a year for the whole family used some of the family of four Right. So you're really talking about a situation where Most folks don't understand that they met, they made themselves qualify for some kind of community economic benefit or not understanding how severe the problem is. And I think what happened with the government shutdown and people saw Just that the paycheck the sensitivity of a paycheck. When I would do financial planning, I would always say if the market would a tank and you lost your job. How long could you last? If the market with a tank So all the stocks bonds, etcetera, go to zero and you lose your job. You no longer get that paycheck. How long could you last? And How you could measure that in months really determined your financial stability, the basics of stability. Stability was 3 to 6 months if the mark would've tank and I lost my job and everything hit the fan. I would at least be able to last six months. Before I need to figure out my next move. So that means that in order for you to calculate Six months, and I'm not saying anything about income at this point. This is for anybody out there, listening. To calculate that six months you need to do a budget. You need to have your budget laid out for you. So you understand how much you would need to survive for that? Six months? And so when you look at your budget, you want to break it up into two. Completely different categories. You've got your fixed expenses and you've got your variable expenses. Your variable expenses are basically things that you don't know where and you don't know when they'll take place. You just You just know the money is going to be spent very good, variable expense to think about his gas. I have no idea where I'm going to get gas. I don't even know exactly what the cost is going to be, But I know it's gonna happen. It's a variable expense clothing. Rosaries. When you start to get into the more flamboyant expenses, you put them in the category of entertainment going skiing, taking the family on vacation going to a movie. Those are all in entertainment expenses. So variable expenses tend to be well gets us in trouble..

And when you see that, generally speaking, they're trying to set up staging areas for first responders and emergency equipment and Fire crews, so all of that is going on, oftentimes in those parking lots that are no longer available to the public. Um There are all kinds of safety alerts being published in all the rest, So that's that's what's going on. Meantime, Uncultured 19. You saw that San Francisco looked like it was going to be off the watch list. But now that's not so sure. Now that's not so certain. Yeah. Gavin Newsom teased it during one of his updates on Wednesday that it could possibly be taken off the watch list. As soon as Thursday. But that didn't happen. Santa Cruz County was taken off the watch list, but Mendocino County was added to the watch list. So You got to get has the numbers trending in the right direction for at least three straight days, and apparently, San Francisco may have just missed that. Well, it's you know, it's one step forward Two steps back sometimes. Isn't it with this stuff? Yeah. I mean, you're seeing it with all the schools that are trying to reopen kids going to campus, and then they haven't outbreak so they have to cancel classes in person, at least. You know the campuses and in the school realm. Generally, I had two thoughts, one of which is related to older kids going back to college, a lot of friends who are sending their kids back to college. They can't wait to send our kids about college. There's some of that. I remember saying do this is just the last few days. The somebody I know I said, Well, aren't you Are you concerned that you know he could get some kinds of? No, I'm not. He's got to get out of here. Out out. Well, you know, it can be serious. Yeah, right. Okay. I need about So there is a commitment oftentimes, in the part of parents to get the child out. If you can. You know if you can afford college, even I mean, my God. I mean, this is like some guy had a couple of dollars to send his kids off and everything is made more complicated. Now as You know as job loss increases and Life just seems so much more complex. It's what made this convention. I watched The final night. And it just made it. It's all done against this backdrop of sort of what is a bleak America. You know it's funny because when Donald.

Striving For Justice with Quoc To
"Can you elaborate on this dream job thing I like. How and when did you dream of becoming a public defender? Like what does the story behind? I I mean. First of all I. It wasn't my dream job so much when we worked together prevention student comedy night. I I knew I wanted to do something social justice related At Ti we? We worked on one of the things that work. There was violence prevention, and that actually got me started on like looking at took one of the classes that. Are exactly record started their violence prevention as a public health issue, and so I just. Looking at looking at that and thinking I wanted to do something within the community I grew up in a poor underserved community community caller. You know a refugee we. We came over America on a refugee resettlement You know plan and I grew up in A. Poor, community stalled pitfalls of crime and I mean pitfalls, poverty and homelessness in lack of social services, and what does the? How that intertwined with you know criminal justice. Actually I haven't really shared this a with a lot of people, but in college. I don't know if you remember, but about. About like a a couple of weeks before the end of my second year I think that was your senior year. one of my fraternity mates got killed outside of our house I think it's like it was huge news at Berkeley right like profits class in nuclear engineering. Really I don't remember I apologize. There's there's a lot from my past. That's a blurb, but yeah. Yeah, yeah, so he was. He was stabbed outside Sigma Pi. And I was I was like there. I had seen him like minutes before that. So the trial unravelled a over the next couple of years and. It slowly some. If some of my about this podcast is GONNA be like! Wow, we didn't even know this, but you know when I was sitting in the through a case and going through that case I felt this. Kid You know when I learned more about it turns out like he was. Small was unemployed. She works for nonprofit. Is that I? Think was like construction work, but you either way. They came from a working class. Family went to public schools he went to. Berkeley High School nearby. And I sitting in that courtroom I kind of felt more. I felt like I empathize with him. You know 'cause he he. He reminded me of you know the people kids grew up with You Know An. Myself came through the environment and I know that I'm very fortunate to be where I'm at You know I you make your own luck, but a lot of it is you catch outbreaks along the way and I kind of was keenly aware of how close I was from not being at Berkeley, not being where I was. You know and so. I I couldn't help feel empathy for him, and so it kind of made me like. You know I wanted justice for my. My friend, who was killed tragically, but I I also felt like his kids GonNa. he kills one drunken site. Right and so I was like it gets convicted. He goes to prison. Justice just felt elusive, really lucid to me and I think that was experience was very transformative for me especially with my background everything that was going on knowing. Justice and so. You know I got to law school and I actually was recruited to help. Run A campaign for my one of my mentors. Ru Training is a form of public County new has private practice now. was running for DA and so if. I. Don't know people pay attention, but the recent election Cisco They elected a yes boden from the San Francisco, public office, but he wasn't I poetry a run for DA And so he ran. He ran for da I manage his campaign. Obviously lost George, GASCON Wanda year and but just being with him. Just he was like you know. I was working at A. A firm that summer I was out wasn't happy on civil, a civil work and I just wasn't happy. And like you got for public office and so I did. And I the next semester. A you know got got internship at Contra Costa Public Office and I fell over the work it just was. It was like this is what I WANNA do this. Would you know what to do and? Yet at the rest is history.

That's audible and. It's not a small undertaking I mean like. Any any endeavor, especially dream because there's a lot of layers to that because I think be these big visions that we can have, I can feel very like.

Does Mount Diablo Have the Biggest View in the World?
"Okay so we set out to learn if Mount. Diablo is in fact numeral dose on the list of places on Earth where you can see the most land reporter Assault Asana takes a winding road to find out. The mystery of the view from Mount. Diablo is a romantic one steeped in local legend to find out. If it's true I drove to the source itself. Six hundred feet arrive at your destination from the base of the mountain. It takes me about an hour to get to the top. Well took so long. Mount Diablo sits on the eastern edge of the Bay area in Contra Costa County. But you can see. It's double peak pyramid from most spots around the bay at three thousand eight hundred forty nine feet. The mountains view is second to none. Well it's second to one. Maybe we'll find out so the view and you come up. Here is really amazing. How it compares. To Kilimanjaro is up for debate. But I'm kind of partial to the view here from Mount Diablo and I think most people would come pretty amazed by what the view looks like my tour guide today is Sharon Peterson. Mount Diablo state parks interpreter. Which she says means her job is to tell the story of the park. Sharon takes me to the summit's viewing deck. She says the clear day. You can see forty of California's fifty eight counties from here as little as one percent of some of those counties but still this is where we walk out into the wind. I she points West so you can see the Golden Gate Bridge today. You could see both towers with the naked eye and if I give you the binoculars you can probably for sure. She whips them out and there. It is the Golden Gate Bridge Sixty miles away two towers peaking over round top in the Berkeley Hills. That's really really cool. Then we turned north and you can see the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers forming the Delta South. It's a sweeping view of the Diablo range and livermore pleasanton and finally east or through the haze we catch a glimpse of the snow-speckled Sierra rising above the Central Valley over a hundred miles away. And I heard that you can also see Yosemite from here on a clear day you can and with binoculars you can see Sentinel Dome. There is a rumor that you can see half dumb but it's actually blocked by one of the land features in between seeing it for myself. The site is so magnificent so magical that feels like. I'm looking down at a watercolor. The only thing that compares is the view from a plane. Maybe it's possible. The Myth is true. It's absolutely not true. The Mount Diablo has the largest view in the world. Except for Mount Kilimanjaro. Seth Adams is the land conservation director at Save Mount Diablo and he spent a lot of time myth. Busting the Kilimanjaro claim. I never quite believed it. It just didn't have the ring of truth to me because it's a small mountain and common sense would tell you the taller. The mountain the bigger view but considering the myth has been repeated hundreds of times. He says it makes sense. People would believe it. Seth trace the infatuation with Diablo back to the eighteen fifties and sixties when scientists like Hosea Whitney first geologically surveyed the mountain. That's Jose Whitney of Mount Whitney the tallest mountain in the Sierra Nevada. Jose Whitney road. It is believed that there are few if any points on the earth's surface from which so extensive and area maybe seen as from Mount Diablo the whole area thus spread out can hardly be less than forty thousand square. Miles the legend snowballed from there repeated over and over for decades through the end of world. War Two a time when people really start experiencing parks and mountains. Recreationally and Mount. Diablo became a Goto tourist spot. The Kilimanjaro Claims Circulated and travel guides and hiking maps by railroad companies and Auto Associations Even Contra Costa County described it as quote the world's greatest view more territory visible than from any point in the world but as visitors flocked to Diablo for the views entrepreneur side. Chance to make a buck. More than half of Mount Diablo was locked up. Successively by two big real estate land speculators both of them printed brochures by the thousands that includes the claimed amount of having the largest boasting that claim was a smart business. Move for one developer. In nineteen seventeen he had a dream of building. Thousands of homes on Diablo's western flank and those amazing views helped push his agenda forward. Eventually the developer went bankrupt and the deal flopped. But it was too late. The brochures had done their work. Oh you can definitely credit the brochures for spreading the misinformation. But it's just too good acclaim the largest few in the world right and understand that California was a promoter's dream which brings us to another promoter the entrepreneur Walter p frick who hired a publicist to help him spread the rumor. The Mount Diablo had the greatest view on earth especially as he built an eight foot beacon tower known as the eye of Diablo but frick was working with engineers from the standard oil company and they were skeptical. Someone for the first time said come on biggest view in the entire world so after that the nineteen twenty eight standard oil bulletin added a footnote to their brochure except for a point in Africa. Clearly being Mount Kilimanjaro. From their the legend shifted from Mount Diablo having the largest few in the world to the second largest it went on like this until nineteen ninety four when it was officially debunked by an engineer slash mountaineer. Who did the math? His name was Edward Earl but he went by the nickname. Seven point three eight nine zero five six zero nine nine math joke. She said I don't believe this. And so what I'M GONNA do is. I'm going to find the problem. And I'm going to calculate view sheds for lots of other mountains and see how they compare view. Shed is the area visible from a specific vantage point including land or water. Now Remember Whitney speculated Diablo's view shed was about forty thousand square miles but according to earls calculations it's actually between thirteen and twenty one thousand. That might still sound like a lot but from other Taller Mountains. You can see more than three times as much and even for a total non mathematician like me. It kind of makes sense. Mount Kilimanjaro is five times the size of Mount Diablo so diop blow couldn't possibly have a comparable view shed even if it is an isolated peak.

successful elder address key advocacy and law boot camp in September which is unique educational experience for elder care professionals to learn about effective tools and resources for urgent matters facing our elders now when you hear a state planning I bet you're thinking and oh death planning we're planning for what's gonna happen after I pass right but in reality it's the capacity planning that is most important because without it your family is going to be a mess if you die without in this state plan there is a plan it might take more time and cost more money but things will work themselves out your partner will be the state of California but if you do become incapacitated without a plan it's really gonna be really hard really rough road for you and your family you don't have a lot of time you'll need someone to step in and start helping you if you don't want to waste your money on courts the court system and attorneys if you're incapacitated you want your money to be spent on your care have any incapacity plan is critical and everyone needs one and that's what we're gonna talk about right now Houston welcome to the show and thanks for being with me today thank you Greg it's great to be back good good good so last time you're on the show we talk about the basics of estate planning I think we're gonna try to focus on a few particular aspects of the estate plan today so I want to start with one of the one that we tend not to pay as much attention to as you probably should and that's in capacity planning I guess can you start with defining it well sure I'm good I'm just going to say and I want to reiterate what you said in your introduction is that of really the more I do what I do the more families I meet with the more convinced I am that it's really the incapacity planning planning for what will happen to us if we become incapacitated that is the most important as you pointed out it's going to mess up your family if you haven't done it I'm a couple of things you know it takes time if you don't have an incapacity plan your kids this is the typical scenario your kids are going to be struggling they're going to have to try and figure things out they don't know where things are they don't know what to do and they don't have the legal authority to help you and that takes time if what we end up having to do is go to court and get a conservatorship that takes time that also takes money I'm working with a family right now the father is incapacitated the children are struggling with this because one thing that's happening is they have discovered that some while back the father refinance the home they can't talk to the lender because they don't have an effective power of attorney they have a power of attorney that you know somebody's uncle who's corporate attorney wrote in the nineteen nineties so they're really struggling and they need to know there's so many things they need to know how much is the house really worth should we bother fixing it up and trying to sell it to even be paying the mortgage we can't even pay the mortgage we can access the bank accounts so just so many things are happening with this family that really could have gone so much more smoothly if the father had a solid incapacity plan that the kids could pick up and start working with so what I hear in capacity so we have a living trust mmhm it is so that is the end could pass the plan in addition to the living trust is it an addendum to the document is it is it a Hey you my stupid child this is what you need to do what does it look like that's a great question what I will fault we're also program by timers now what what is the need to check what do I need what what's got to be checked up on my list right a basic input capacity plan now I'm talking about something that everybody needs and and in my world there are two kinds of incapacity planning the first is you know proactive advance planning the kind that everybody should do the second we'll talk about a little bit later I suspect is what I call crisis planning but right now what I want to focus on is this is what everybody everybody needs to do I'm not just talking about elderly people although that's where it tends to really you know the rubber hits the road a durable power of attorney for you know legal and financial matters that's a basic components of a solid incapacity plan a healthcare directive you need someone who can step in and start making medical decisions for you who can talk to your doctors who can figure out what your treatment as you can your health care advocate the person on your health care directive is the person who decides where should my mom even bees should she be in this assisted living facility or that one this nursing facility or that one everybody needs a healthcare directive and then most people in California are doing estate planning with the trust and if you have a trust that owns some of your assets there needs to be incapacity provisions actually written in the trust and I can talk a little bit more in detail about the kinds of problems that we see and things that we'd like to addressed with those documents that are you know kind of give some folks a little bit better idea of what they should be thinking about when they're doing in capacity plans because these plans run from basic thing that you pull off the internet to write something that's really customized and very powerful which you know in some cases the basic pull it off the internet is fine and in some cases we need something a lot more robust so the issue is that we tend to face with our powers of attorney and our trust them to focus on those how do we establish that these documents are now effective in other words when we have it say a parent who clearly is becoming incapacitated and you know honestly what we're dealing with most of the time these days is dementia dementia is a huge and growing problem everything I'm talking about could also apply to strokes it could be applied to traumatic brain injury all of the same things but it tends to be dementia just by the statistics that's what we're seeing that's definitely what I'm seeing in my practice so the question is okay mom has a power of attorney mom has a trust it says when mom becomes incapacitated Susie steps and Susie is the trustee Susie is the agent under the power of attorney it's very important for the document itself to say how do we know that mom is incapacitated what is the proof because what you're trying to do under this power of attorney is convinced the bank or convince an investment house that you Susie now have the power to manage mom's assets you're trying to convince them and if they read the document and they can't figure that out you're gonna have a lot of push back and that's what we write a week that's what I was saying the power of attorney that you pull off the internet isn't going to say that okay okay so why don't we hold that
