"How great is that now it's not anymore. It's not just, oh, how could you do that? We can't have them here. We don't have time. Now it's your racist for sending them here because that's the only thing. They go to that every time, right? You're a racist if you don't like what they're doing. Now they're a racist. Every leader in Texas, Arizona, they're all, it's all racism now again. Go back to my original comment. Put her in the same class, brain dead putts. She useless, okay? I'll follow it up with one last comment. I'd love to debate. Any one of these people you bring on any liberal, I would debate them anytime anywhere. You know why? Because they have no substance and they don't have any facts. And they can't come through with what America really likes. So I stand with the American, the actual American people who are who are hopefully are going to vote in November. Always the voice of reason and always someone who is very blunt and honest with us, we greatly appreciate it that's New York State settlement Dave DPH or Dave. Thanks so much for joining us. Greatly appreciate it. God bless you. All right, take care, buddy. Two blunt folks right in a row there. Come on, you're listening to Mike in my highly. What else are you expecting? It is the best. The best top of our game right now. This is I want to go back to Christina Greer for one minute. It's up on its hilarious. She says, it's not about the 80,000 per trip to transfer the migrants in New York City. These racists don't mind paying any amount of money to get them out of Texas and bring them to New York City. Because they're racist, but was Joe Biden racist for putting them on a plane in the dark of night secretly, and flying in New York City when no one was watching. Yeah. That's okay. I also thought you guys wanted to help people. You guys love helping people. Give them opportunities, right? Oh, just not in New York City though. But what's the difference between the Biden administration, secretly flying in illegal immigrants, New York City, then the Texas governor who's putting illegals on a bus. Yeah. They're both getting New York. They're just taking different modes of transportation is it that you're not getting like peanuts in a coffee and on an airplane or that you're taking a bus. So edge is pure politics and hypocrisy at its worst, but I'm not surprised. Yeah, it's really sad to be honest with you. I think the three guests we heard today. There's really not much optimism right in people. We had a chance, Mike hateful, and I had to talk to sheriff Daniels a couple of weeks ago. He's pissed off. He's annoyed. He's had it with the border situation, right? There's not a lot of optimism and stuff. The more I read about these midterms, you know, I hope I hope it's a red wave. We'll see soon. I think the right is angered about the FBI raid on Donald Trump. We'll see what comes out of that, but if it's a simple question, are you better off now than you were two years ago when Joe Biden became president? It's a very simple question. And I think, you know, pundits and people in politics tend to muddle it a little bit. Let's focus on whether it's abortion or gun control or whatever the issue is. It's a very simple question. Is your family better off now than you were two years ago? And if the answer is no, vote Republican. Yeah, that's right. And I hope I hope people do. And again, what do we now 60 something days away from ten weeks, ten weeks away? From tomorrow. So folks, again, you got anything off. Are you good for today?

"The woods than real life as well as your game. Apparently a little bit. Do you have any advice for anybody who may be thinking about creating your own board game play. Lots of games play lots of different games. There's so much that happened in the gaining world in the last ten fifteen years. It's you know it's not monopoly anymore. In that's one is you need to display a lotta different games to see what things are out there that you like and in how they work Then it's get something together it doesn't have to be pretty And start playing it with other family members and friends and then once you get to a point where you think will. I have something here. You might wanna use some clip art. You're not breaking any laws on. You're not selling it at that point any. Go out to the local game store when we can do that. Tough you can try putting putting it up on tabletops simulator. Getting people get people. Don't notice it because your friends and families people don't want be nice and you do need tough critics because you wanna find the things that are wrong with it before you send it out to the general public alike you know about it. Here's the problem you know. And so and then there's people like there's board game geek. A lot of games are rated in geocaching. game is on there and it and it has Pretty good ratings and but there's just like one guy who clearly hasn't played the game or bought the gain just heard about it and he gave it a two out of ten and said wandering around the woods looking for geocache Geocaches is like the opposite of geocaching. Like glad he made the comment because unlike what exactly what she she is. So i don't i don't think he's ever played it. He's looked at it and said this you know and you're going to have those people and it's fine because there's plenty of eight thousand nine hundred ten but it's you gotta and i tell that story just because you try to produce the game that's gonna happen and you just have to have tough skin about it laugh at often night. You know i kinda. It's you can't make a game that's for everybody and You do the best you can. But yeah i get in front of people don't know intestinal out. That's kinda wild that he made that comment because the sooner we said that my first thought is. That's exactly what unless you just doing parking grabs. That's exactly what it is. You wonder around in the woods looking for her he could have just gone on and put to attend not made a comment and that would hurt a lot more because being there think people reading go. Yeah i don't think he's putting this so proves that we didn't rig all ratings to so that's true but yeah it's it's kind of funny anyway. Anybody that's interested in buying the cash me if you can work game card game or any of your other games. What is the best place to buy that. You mentioned amazon. But then they're also available studio your dp website correct yes dot com animal ship amount right away now. The card games only through a website because we make that locally. It's we can't wholesale. It's too expensive to do that. So we sell through our website On ebay and at c. n. z. Ebay can't remember. Cnc bargains is one of those two but they're also an amazon so if you search on amazon yours to vendors that currently have it. They're aware although it says second edition it is not the second asian. It is the fourth edition. I cannot get it. Change the amazon. For i don't they said i don't. I don't control it anymore. Type about the vendors. They don't control this like we don't know who controls the heidel that we can't name was hell last week. That's kind of crazy. That's good to know though for anybody looking at it on amazon the same i would definitely include the link to your guises website show notes. Everybody can check out the cash me if you can games and all the other board games that are on their some normally. This is where i would insert the spoiler warning for the cash highlights but i did not have a cash. Ad in this instance. I'm for going the warning It's still really fun story. I hope you guys enjoy it. Did you have a cash. You wanted to highlight for us. A story belt love to hear it off it's still out there but This is my highlight. So i think there was eight of us around this thing so basically this guy took this safe and put it in a slab of concrete and buried in the ground so finding the surface was exposed so finding it was easy. So there's tumbler lack with little key hole and you gotta get this thing opened in the name of it was Since along is it was called safe like nine forty eight or whatever then hanging from the tree as a string in a magnet in so we're like trying nine four eight and we're going around with the key to the full extent around missing With a magnet trying to like hit a key with a magnet navy nets how it is Were all over ourselves in basically what it was the tumbler nor the key actually worked you bet you take the magnet and put it on the safe in slide. Whatever the bars are safe that keep the on the door and slid over the store into the world. And i'm not sure if it's the same guy in that one but he had He had like an automatic recording. Hi geocaching started talking to you but it was eight of us just going crazy and it was somebody who had done it before finally gave in gave us a hint in as i loved ones where you're staring at him. It's right there but you just can't do it like you just don't and then you're like oh it always seems so simple. We know the answer to it. How long did they make you wait it out before they finally gave in helped you forty five minutes or so. It was. it was crazy. Good the so. It was just like a like a portable safe or like how big wine wasn't in portable. They had it well. It might have been the concrete around it so no one can take it so it was buried in the ground and salad like you could. Not the thing was false so yeah there was not even any temptation to try to move it so great way to keep it from being muddled for sure.

"Lot can be run from money there. And especially with the panic. What a great way to be able to still do something with geocaching. If you're an area where you can't really go out and cash is to have a board game or card game option. So when i when. I came across your website. I actually was doing some research for another episode about winner cashing and i was looking for some geocaching related alternatives for people. Like me who do not like to go out in the cold and came across your board game in another blog article. And i thought what a great idea to be able to geo cash without having to go out into the cold actually. Gop yeah Designed for the first year we the the midwest gio bash. There's this huge airport hangar. They have vendors and there's a bunch of like table set which shares in the beginning. We don't know why people would do this but they would come up and say why would i buy a board game about a game. You know like well. I don't know. But if i can sell to one percent of all the geocaches it's still sixty thousand games. I'll take it what happened in this about one o'clock this unbelievable torrential downpour happen. I mean it was. I really seen anything quite like it. So everyone came running into the building in it was going to go on for an hour to so we couldn't swipe the credit card thing fast enough young people are buying the game then going out and playing it and then people were watching playing it becoming buying the game and so i wanted to go to the first couple of people. Like i don't know why unite geocaching rate time so amid last Setup that we can actually before the vending area opens run a few activities in people. Play the games. And that's really what sells it. Is you know want once you played it and see what it's like in how much it's like it simulates. It's not the same. Obviously geocaching but it simulates a lot of the experiences and there's some devious things people can do and i have some stories but i thought were sweet innocent Geocaches in some pretty nasty things turned out the head of dark side them loved it. They just giggled. That's fun it also. Seems like a great way to introduce people to kind of the idea of geocaching said. It is different than a geocaching but it has a lot of same aspects. You did mention the one couple but your game. And then when out geocaching because of it do you get a lot of stories like that from the events early on more than now because what happened is we were going to boarding conventions in all. We had was the geocaching game. So people like. what's this. What's this and then. We came out with psych warfare. So that sort splits in half and then cats and we clinton thursday than affliction and sunau is the ten whatever yet your nine nine games It's pretty much geocaches. Spot the game. Now wanna play it Kind of what happens. So we haven't had that experience as much the play starting out. It used to happen a fair amount snake. The to know that your game helped introduce some people to the hobby and then i like in my house i am i have. Go casher my husband is not. He humor me sometimes introduced. My mom to my sister doesn't do it. But i could get them to sit down. Well grant during non pandemic times we would. We have thought weekly family dinners every week or every other week and a lot of times. We playing games. I could definitely get them to sit down and play at. Least try at once and play geocaching board game with me where i may not able to convince them to go out to say there like i said the there are some differences in the fourth edition in where they came from is from all the other games things i learned about in in developing the other games from From the first edition the fourth. So things like the equipment deck. You don't just draw target random but you you have the deck where you can draw the top card but there are three cards face up because when you go shopping you choose what you want now. Maybe they don't have the item you want so then you can go random and take one off the top of the deck but just little things like that where you have a little more agency in how the game is played in how it goes. Do you have any new edition of it. Coming out is the is the fourth edition Pretty recent or has a fourth edition came out last fall. I believe the ones in the work as of right now not a pretty big revamp and in the sense that we went through the rules and redid. The rules made them. That's been gradually happening. But the first edition. I taught people read words in it was just like a the rule book was just basically words so now it's much more graphical with you know this is. This is how you move the that kind of stuff. So i think and then sometimes questions would come up. And as a result of that we could see For example a an amazing one that went through all the testing and everything and no one ever read this this way the tiles on the board some of them are one time thing so you hit it in any remove it the physical features like pirker bushes in cliffs and stuff. They stay for the duration of the game. But you might have something like taking event carton at the bottom of tile. It said replace when reveal in meaning replace it with another tile but we had a couple of people take it as re place it on. The board has announced says removed from play. Just you know not to but those little things happen. Have you had a pretty good response to the the changes in this latest edition. Yeah And it's hard because kovin started so we didn't get we would probably have a lot of times it convention people come up to us and tell us their experience whereas sit down and email someone you know it's a it's a bigger ask so but we have heard and people are pretty excited about the people already have older versions of the gamer. You know really excited. And i've had a couple of people saying they really liked to changes. It does add a little more depth In a little take gets rid of some of the a little bit of the lucky nece that would happen for some other players. Pack you gotta watch your battery life. You can't just be wondering around.

"Do that again as long as you learn from it right. That's the important parts. So you guys also have a card game version. Yes and is it the same goal to get the most number of points or is it. A different goal is what happens is it's style game was color. Press your luck. Aims you keep flipping cards off the deck If you get to hazard you bust and you lose all the cars net lineup What you're trying to do is get coordinates coordinates card along with gio cash types of geocaches in summer again traditional cashes which you can injure turn it anytime in collect but you know there's two out there and there's one hazard maybe i should just stop and collect the now but maybe it could one more card and that's the pressure less luck aspect if that card is a hazard than you boston. You don't get any of those caches also your turn by collecting a piece of equipment. So there's things like flashlights in jackets and stuff and you go through the deck three times in so in that same situation where you have a hazard l. a. accordance card in a couple of cash and you flip the next card in its precursor bushes in normally would blast have gloves if you have the heavy gloves that you won't bust you just discarded. Hard seventy equipment helps with the hazards. Yes in so you. Gather up a lot of equipment early on or do you collect caches. And so it's a pretty easy game. Play place pretty fast. But there's there's a a fair amount to it. There's one card in the deck Bear pair comes out. You automatically bust could see bears and the third time through the deck barracuda out the game ends. There's a couple of other little twists in equipment and stuff in there. But that's that's the core of it that. How long does it take the place. It was a pretty quick play. So we in fifteen fifty nece yes we brought out. That was that was berkshire now. What i can't remember which. I just remember getting an email later from this. A friend of mine through geocaching but thanks a lot. We stay up till three. I'm playing stupid cartoon or that's your comparatively. How long does the board game typically take so to player is about a half hour in four players about an hour. The more players takes a little longer back. There's a twist and turns in. It's kind of funny. Because of it was cash the line played it did a live virtual play and was online so it took longer. Because i got to tell you what i'm doing. One person at the board in front of everyone had cameras. You know. I think one touring canada australia anyway. So if they start going through. They're going through pretty quickly in it. Looks like someone's going to win because you play the fifteen points in. I think she was at twelve or something and they said well. Let's play eighteen it longer. It will happen to somebody. Played a card where she lost points. It would like another. It's not. It wasn't designed to do that so i think it took them like an hour and a half almost two hours to play because little extension they do. Everything spun differently. They were like oh just going. So smoothly hazards come out and stuff so normally. It's about an hour for four players. It's about an hour game for the card game. is that also two to four players. Or what's the player range on that. One as unfinished for so it is too before i mean you could probably try it with five. Just might not be enough cards to do that. so and actually there's a again we on the solo set of rules for that fit people order from us. We attach the solar set in but final final fully tested. So you guys have quite a few different kinds of games here looking at your website. You've got an inca empire. You've got psychological warfare. You've got matt sad. But necessary cycle of violent predatory behavior. You have quite a variety of four games here. So i gotta ask you which one of all of your games is your favorite. It really really depends on what you're in the mood for. So because i play inaugural euro play these conventions quite a bit. The gate of rela- is Social deduction game so that means the group of is trying to achieve a goal but hidden amongst the group is a few people. Don't want us to and they're trying to subvert and you don't know who they are so i probably played affliction about thirteen to fourteen hundred times soon. You play in that game. it's still very. I still see things happen in that one minutes very strategic game. It's about the salem witch trials. It's historically accurate. But with gator lay. There's just the social interaction is is really what it's about because i'm pretty sure you're a cultist and that's it but i'm not in all the things call of the same things. Investigators will say in so Conventions with new groups of people. I would say gay is probably let the favorite one But that's i really have a hard time saying favorites We had origins in columbus ohio. When you're with so many people descend upon our booth that we had four people playing geocaching game and one of them is a guy who was a big time game or a big time gio cashier and he already again. I don't know he's. I think that year week if you played so many games you're getting buttons in stuff. And so he went to collect kelly's buttons so he's he came to So he ends up. We didn't have enough people. He ends up teaching the game. Everyone else for mike thank you. Because he knew he knew in an outhouse. Play it so There's lots of great fun convention stories and But yeah favorite is tough because it has more to do with like how many thousands of times i've played point in time and then you play quite a few four games a quite a bit more often been the average player would just because of all your conventions and events you take them too.

"Sort of fade. Away at points was so much going on but it was and for me. That would be quite the combination. Samis geocaching i mean. The terror was the players. Were all superheroes and so. If one of the superheroes turned a zombie it was a little kid. Ability to fly and your zombie. It was a little terrifying. Could imagine little limited run of those and they're there when you do that kind of thing. It's pretty expensive to produce and you know what we had to charge for. What you were getting. Just didn't feel like you know you kind of have an idea when you're buying a game how much you're gonna pay for What components and we were basically breaking even are losing money every time we sold one. So there's a number of people that have that out there but I should look online either going for some ridiculous amount. 'cause they're out of print especially these days speaking of these days being different. How has co bid in the pandemic affected you guys. Because you've mentioned before that you go to events. And i'm guessing that has limited the events options yeah Basically one of our major streams of of making money as conventions So geocaching events and borgen conventions and for obvious reasons. None of those happened this year You know so. It's not been great For example gen con in indianapolis is a game convention as about seventy thousand people a day. So we'll probably see a few thousand people coming by our booth and whatever and so they did it on this year. We interacted with twenty eight people. So if a drop off you know but it's but it's fortunately there's a thing called tabletop simulator. So what's ended up happening is. We're spending a lot of time in development I've played testers. That are local here at upstate. New york and then. I had some another group does now away way and then another group. It's a few hours away at harrisburg because now we're doing this all online intermixed and get to meet each other. It's kind of interesting. But the good thing is the online thing is just not as satisfying and so when we are able to get together again. It's just sitting around the table. Clean board games so much better. Yeah definitely online. Games are are great to have available especially right now when you can't really get together in a lot of places but yeah there's something about just play in person that it's just so much better right. It's it's the main reason i'm doing this is to allow the people you meet in In sit around and just have fun with a group of people just to you know so. I kind of mentioned development of geocaching game. We are at conventions playing with people. And no they don't not gio coin is and they don't know they can invent target says you've been stopped by the police. They're like Okay but they don't chuckle. 'cause they don't quite get you know that's that's never happened to them. And so when we were finally able to bring it to gio cashiers. It was kinda crazy. Latch is it's just like are you laughing and saying oh my guy. This is all the stuff that happens to me. You know and It's just that interaction is what drives motivity. So it's been a long year for us but along for a lot of people so i'm not complaining. I know as of right now. There is a believe it's called. Moga the geocaching events in kentucky for next memorial day. Twenty twenty one their plans for you guys to be at that event so that's been the seam of the year is it's been impossible to plan anything i i probably personally will not attend large gathering until i have a vaccine and i'm pretty low on the list. So maybe yeah. It's it's kind of crazy. My mom and i were sheep. Mike got my mom introduced into geocaching and she super excited and i showed her the events. Because it's about four hours from us. She was really wants to go with me but at the same time. We're like well with kobe. Who knows what we're going to actually be able to do. Or if they were actually able to have the yvette in the end. But i'm excited when they get going but We typically have attended allegheny start state party midwest gio bash out by west to toledo ohio. Which is crazy three day. one the New jersey and selenium forgetting the names of them that said Metro go bash down in jersey. Berkshire ended a couple years ago. So that's not going on In if like moga has Wondered up into athens. Ohio on your silly went to that and then geeta woodstock depending on where that lands. I'm assuming they're Again i i don't know if that's going to happen and i'm like i'm going like one week at a time. I can't. i can't blame you for that. It's just insane year. That i don't think has gone the way anybody into stated ever. So do you remember. What the first geocaching event was. That you took the board game too would have been Allegany state park events. Which is a mango know about six hundred people. It's western new york in. They had like Look this chinese auction where you put your tickets in bags for things right to win a raffle drawing near you know the band sitting around the table next to the items until you put your buy tickets and you put them in the things that you wanted that we we don't eat in a game in peguis was full and the problem. Was you know we sold some games. But i had to learn but we missed out on a lot of sales because people were like well. If i win it and then the was the last thing in. Everyone went home. And it's like we're not doing it again. You know apple up You know gift certificates for something else. But it's human nature. I mean you're going to get one for free. Why would you. Why would you buy it. So we re. We learned our first year. We still sold a fair number but it was kind of like. oh yeah. We shouldn't.

Are you know possibly a bit younger with help. It sounds like yeah. We've had people do that Geocaching events game nights that have gone to like kit will sell their parents. He plays team in that. That definitely you know has worked okay. That's good to know. So you mentioned the board came came about as the idea for the birthday party. But so how do you go from you. You have this idea. And you've made a prototype to actually selling games to people a whole as pillow very big question. It is Because that game that we brought to the hardy was really just the initial idea and then that friend of mine. There was actually a local gaming convention in his town. He's like you gotta get up here. We went there and we met. Some people were very helpful in kind of brought it more into modern version. Made some changes to make that improve. Were able to go out and start actually testing it at gaming convention so we win for months playing the game with non geocaches cash resolve the place which was kind of funny they were. They were who they were They were into it. They had feedback and One of my favorite stories is once we finally produced it in. There's this young couple in love board games and they bought the board game and then they sent me a picture week later them getting their first yo cash because they never been geocaching so I worked in office where we all rent. Desks insults A think tank And so i had some business health there. We started a corporation To get some shareholders and so did some financing Started learning what to do along the way. Terms of graphic design artscience finding a manufacturer and And that as i've we've produced more games we've made more connections and that's much more streamlined So it's a lot of testing a of You know playing with different groups of people in then it's compiling all of getting getting the are getting the graphic design getting the rules Altogether in Send it off The last one we re social refunded it up on her so we had some people back the game ahead of time and help pay for the fourth edition the fourth edition. I should mention ads in Battery life and Health so before. You run into a prickly bush me. Just go to the hospital now you lose a couple of health. Heart tokens in when she was four. Harto 'cause you to the hospital and every time you reveal a cashier you lower your battery life. And then there's a there's a couple of advanced internet super vents but advanced that rules where where there's terrain and cash difficulty levels so you can sign difficulty levels to the to the caches okay. So the players assigned the difficulty levels your opponents than the upon us. It's it's kind of its wealth. It's more than two players. It's like a bidding system. Whoever bids highest difficulty level that cash becomes that you have to roll based basically. You're rolling a ten sided die and the result has to be higher than the combined Terrain difficulty and cash So if it's three terrain for difficulty cash after all mater higher as i'm a signing net difficulties with cash your after. If you don't get it. I can try to come and get cash later but if i've made it very difficult it's going to be very difficult for to so it's an interesting little game within the game. That's the advanced rules for people to play the few times. That's neat. sounds interesting so it challenges not just the person creating not just the opponent but even the person creating the difficulty. Yes okay. that's cool. So i saw on your website. You guys have zombie apocalypse expansion pack. Yes we do so sounds amazing to start with well. How that started was actually at that birthday party. One of the other wise guy. Gordon is all you need a zombie extension pick. I'm like all every game. Unless i can come up with something different. I'm not going to do just zombie extension pack however what happened was this is different in that basic. Every geocaching gets it and they laugh is game. That essentially doesn't your goal is the same as to go get geocaches is set except now you're just doing it during zombie apocalypse electric in the way. So you're not really hunting zombies. You're not giving you have to trust it. You defend yourself against him and all that kind of stuff and if you do fall prey to one of his nbc you become one but as zombie the will to geocaches strong and so you continue to go cash as zombie eleven. Yes it's it's kind of kind of wild but We did at one point. Had a superhero gene geocaching stanchion and it was designed that you could actually get crazy but you can combine. You can do superhero geocaching during zombie apocalypse. Which geocaching.

Los Angeles County outdoor dining returns with new COVID-19 rules
"Okay, so you'll have to correct me if I'm wrong when I described this, But there was a skit I want to say in the nineties when Alec Baldwin used to guest host all the time. And the skit Woz. He was operating a dirty cake shop. And people would go in and they would try to buy all these various kinds of dirty cakes, and he would suggest a cake with a woman sitting on a toilet. And then the customer would be disgusted and they would leave and then the next one would come in and the sales pitch would be exactly the same. He would lead him in that direction. And every customer that came into the cake shop. Got that same pitch. Do you remember that's get Try to remember that one. I gotta look that one up. Yeah, that's worth checking out on YouTube. That character in that skit kind of reminds me of the L A times is wrong, Lynn because every question that he asked, is, Do you feel vindicated for setting all the restaurants down? He asked it to Barbara. For rare, He asked it to the mayor. In fact, let's listen. Let's listen to him. Ask that question to Barbara Ferrer. Our next question comes from the line of Ron Lynn. Ron, your line is open. Please go ahead. Hi doctors and supervisor Thanks so much for talking with us today really appreciate it. We have questions for you today. Dr Pereira and supervisor on whether you're vindicated in the public health strategy Project room key and when teachers will get vaccines, first doctor further, and Supervisor L. A county received criticism and lawsuits from some restaurant owners on the outdoor dining ban. County data shows that virus transmission rates started dropping around the same time as the outdoor dining ban and the safe ride home order were issued, which occurred a week ahead of the ST Stay at home order. Does the current good news vindicate your efforts to ban outdoor dining and imposing early, safer at home order? Okay. Now, let's get a completely different question. For l. A mayor Eric Garcetti. I'm deeply feel vindicated that you backed the public Health department here because you know, there's a lot of public criticism. You know about this, but In the end, the public health Department was right. That really bad circles coming on. I just want to know what you thought about that. Thank you. You should really work in a dirty cake shop. Joining us to talk about this and much, much more. Is Fox 11th Film Illusion. Bill Welcome. Hey, John. Thanks for having me, man. That's quite a Quite a variety of questions there. Yeah. You know what? Um, I heard the same thing I was listening in on the DPH pressure the other day. When I heard that question asked in my my job kind of hit the floor. I understand. Ron later explained that he was talking about That our number that health officials like to talk about you know how many people get infected by one single person, he says. That number got lower, but I mean, look at any chart after the outdoor dining band went into effect, our numbers shot up like a missile straight up right afterwards. And if you were we remember at the time supervisors Catherine Parker and Janice Hahn They voted against it. They were concerned that hey, if we shut down outdoor dining, where essentially going to be forcing people indoors, going into the fall going into the colder weather? We're worried people are going to congregate indoors more. And you know, people can debate the outdoor dining ban all they want, but the fact is In the months after it. We went into our worst surge ever, and we're still not out of it. Um, so I don't understand why it would be asked of health officials that they feel vindicated for that. Um, it was just bizarre from my perspective. Well in L. A doesn't operate in a vacuum. We have other cities and other states that air doing similar things and one of the reasons that the city of Chicago decided to reopen their bars and restaurants. I believe for not just outdoor, but indoor dining as well. Was because they realize that by shutting all of them down what they did was, they pushed everyone into crowded little apartments or Grandma's kitchen for Christmas or whatever, and that caused their numbers to explode. The same thing happened in Los Angeles. Yeah. And now they're taking another page out of the exact same playbook. They today they're letting outdoor dining reopen with the caveat that TVs have to be turned off s. Oh, So now the idea is, obviously they don't want people gathering at sports bars and restaurants to watch the Super Bowl next weekend, right? So what they haven't learned. What are people going to do now? Okay, so they don't want him watching it outside. They want to take the outdoor option away. What are people gonna do? Instead? They're gonna watch it indoors. They're going to go to private parties at home. They're gonna watch it. It have people over to watch the game. I would think health officials would want people outside in the fresh air at lower capacity. Rather than crammed inside of private homes. Um, but, hey, I'm not a health expert, but it just seems it just seems logical. So, yeah, they're reopening the outdoor dining today, but TV is has to be gone or turned off.

I mean, I not sure how much you talked about this yet on this program because I just joined, But the way that the fence are distributing the vaccine to the states, is they they give the vaccine directly to the V, A, and to CVS and Walgreens to vaccinate those in long term care homes. And then give the rest to the states to distribute to all of the private hospital and health care providers on Ben Give some to DPH. So the Department of Public Health at that that's responsible in San Francisco for our public health? We don't even know in San Francisco. How much vaccine Kaiser and UCSF and dignity Health and Sutter have, how much they've distributed on And what their exact distribution plan is. So as a policy maker here, I don't even know how to evaluate if we're if we're doing the thing, you know, distributing this vaccine in the best way possible because we're absolutely in the dark in terms of even how much vaccine we have right now in the city. Now That's scary on DSA, certainly eyes the cause for concern. I'm also looking at a question from a listener. Sarabeth, who wants to know the San Francisco have any plans to open vaccination hubs in the low income. Hi Corbett. Impact neighborhoods such as the mission. Bayview Hunters Point in Soma. Yes. So what? Our Department of Public Health and Office of Emergency Management tells us Yes, they have plans in the work, but that we don't DPH does not have enough vaccine yet to open those hubs, So if we open them today, for example, there's no vaccine to distribute. On. Do that again goes to this point that we don't know how much vaccine is this inn in the city? All we know is how much vaccine DPH has, and DPH doesn't have enough to move from the tear. We're currently in which is all health care providers. Let me actually bring a collar on here. I want to go to you, George and appreciate the fact that you've been waiting here should be. Natalie is actually the caller. We're going to go to first that we join us, please. Good morning. I just wanted to comment on the discussion that was begun a couple of minutes ago about whether additional doses of vaccines be disproportionately sent to Those regions where there happens to be more transmission..
