"Mu half day to a day ago before you hear it. So i'm not in any position at this moment to say anything about hurricane ida or its effects on louisiana and new orleans. What i can say is that The prediction of the amount of rainfall. That's likely fits. The worst case scenario offered some time ago by a whistle blower. I know at the us army corps of engineers who will pined that the worst case scenario for the new supposedly improved system to protect new orleans from storms and flooding. That worst case scenario includes a hurricane with high rainfall. So we'll just. We'll just wait and see but i can say this with utter certainty if you're watching or listening to mainstream media and they compare ida with the damage from hurricane katrina in two thousand five unquote they are reporting from the ignoramus desk to university-based forensic engineering studies after the two thousand five flood agreed that the main cause of the disaster. The catastrophe in new orleans was the so-called hurricane protection system built by the united states army corps engineers and which even the corp engineers on one day in two thousand six admitted was a system in.

And they figured out how to manage it not only in the city of greeley but pretty much around the country across the board but critics still say that. The aquifer poses risks due to uranium despite the city's repeated assurances and it's not just assurances it is based on empirical data third party studies indicating the uranium can be treated to levels.

One thing, though, that has just plagued this effort is terrible weather. We just went through another massive lightning storm rain just pouring down on the rubble pile. It's It's tough work here. There is some good news. They managed to extinguish that terrible fire that had burned through much of the weekend inside the debris field. That's a major success and structural engineers are down with these teams as they dig trenches through. That's that's helped them to find more remains, and what's happening now is that authorities are taking the debris to a warehouse to look for more human remains. There also Starting this investigation into why this building collapsed. A lot of questions, of course, swirling around that 2018 engineering report that raised concerns about the building structural integrity and also errors that it found with the construction of this 40 year old condo.

You talk to us in the past how you got interested for some medicine through a pipeline program. Would you mind sharing a little bit about that. Sure so. I think the first time that i had an inkling or an idea that i may wanna be cardiologists was when i was in high school and i participated in a program called health preparation explosion recruitment program each and dr woody lee at yale ran the program. He was a cardiologist and he took me under his wing and left a lasting impression on me and i remember wanting to be just like him and due to that early mentorship.

International Education with Dr Steve McDowell
"Know that you're originally from canada. When did you move to the us I came down in a nineteen ninety four to permanently. I was actually had a congressional fellowship so i was in washington for a year and then went to michigan state for a year and been at florida state since nine hundred six. So you've been in the us for reading longtime right. Would you consider yourself as a canadian or a canadian american. Now i'm a us citizen and Still have family in canada and still try to visit a couple of times a year. But this is my home in tallahassee. And that's wonderful. I know that what i'm about to ask you is is a tough question because oftentimes it's harder for people to talk about themselves and put themselves into a box but i would love to learn a little bit about some of your core values to who you are and on your cultural identity. So how would you define new cultural identity. Certainly as you pointed out. I'm from canada so growing up. Some of the debates and controversies that we had in the sixties and seventies included a role of french and english languages and cultures in canada and the role of multiculturalism. That there was a lot of new canadians coming from different parts of the world and also their relationship with first nations who have often instill Experience discrimination ill treatment and so's debates. I think kind of shaped my sense of what it meant to be a canadian. And what meant to be a citizen in a country where you have those types of debates animating public discourse and when you're thinking about some of your core core values what are some of those things considering you know your background in canada and was issues of multiculturalism in the air i think Interest in other cultures is one thing that i've enjoyed and really benefited from over my life and also a respect for other cultures my own personal intercultural Experiences included working for my sister and brother-in-law and a farm in quebec when i was a teenager and then after high school doing church service project in mississippi and arkansas and united states and getting to know people in those cultures. So i think my i really do think that interest in other people other cultures one of core values and then trying to understand what it means to respect and understand each other. Sounds like you have a pretty multicultural upbringing. I know that you received your international affairs like myself but yours is from york university in canada than you got a fellowship that brought you closer to some of the south. Asian countries like india. And i know that you work is built on the foundations of diversity and you work with international students. You're very supportive of international students. You are teaching course on international communication. So when you're thinking about all of your personal experiences in canada in southeast asia on here in the united states can you give us some specifics. Specific examples of how these experiences shape your personal perspectives on international education. Certainly i think as a starting point We have to kind of understand that our personal experiences are one of many possible experiences that people might have in the world. So it's it's easy for students in the united states to think. Oh this is the way that television is. This is the way that people Communicate with each other or enjoy sports and so many of our cultural practices and focused primarily on media practices. we think. Oh that's how it's done and so a big part of my Focus on international. Communication with students is to try to understand how people use media. How the media organized. How cultures organized in different countries. So my courses themselves don't focus as much on the the interpersonal intercultural communication which we think of is intercultural competency. But i'm trying to understand media systems and media use in different countries around the world. Let's talk about diversity equity and inclusion and higher education because this is a term that you know we hear a lot about and people. Do you have a different conception of what diversity really is. And what am. I look like in colleges and universities because for some people this concept can be purely domestic as opposed to others it could involve a lot of internationalization and international aspects. So for you. What does diversity and inclusion mean here at fsu. And how are we growing this concept on our campus. Certainly starting from the domestic debates the united states diversity equity inclusion would say. Well how do we include the The groups that haven't had access to education public services and economic activity united states so making sure that people of color people from rural areas people from you know less wealthy backgrounds Have access to the opportunities that higher education provides and certainly. Fsu has really taken some major initiatives in that area with student. Success initiatives with the care program Trying to welcome really support students and not just getting them into the university but making sure they're going to be successful in getting the support from a cohort of friends and fellow students from faculty and staff. So i think that's one area of diversity equity inclusion is. Who are we serving in terms of the students. Considering the role of international students is also important because they bring through their personal experience and their relationships with people on campus windows into the world. That you can't get in a textbook or just in a video so you get to know people and build relationships and that's hard even if we're sharing the same space. It's hard to build those relationships so one of the programs on campus. That does a great job with that. Is the center for global engagement. That has a whole bunch of different programs like international coffee hour to facilitate the building of relationships between students from united states and countries around the world so i think domestic inclusion in our programs thinking about international students and i think perspectives that we have in our research questions are research are another important part of diversity that includes international so many of our faculty have research projects that are all around the world. Learning systems institute is a research unit that has projects a lot of them in africa but also in southeast asia and so really strong record of international education consulting and then part of our curriculum and program what we teach what the subjects. What's the content of courses. I think is another of diversity that that's the job of university to open up the world and have music languages cultural studies as well scientific and you know engineering studies that really engage the world and reach out to the

Does it pay to install solar
"It's always been so difficult for me to address is when people wanna know from me if it's a great idea for them to do solar at their home and when you hear my answers to the people pose to me they're really not clear answers and that's from somebody who has been a very early adopter of salt. Were having done the first solar installation. I did a couple of houses ago and at the house we live at now. We have a solar farm instead of on the roof. We put we have a hillside and we did a massive array on the hillside generate enormous energy from it and people will ask me absolutes. Well am i really gonna make back the money. How long's it gonna take and all the rest and the reality is my answers when you ask me. Those questions are so frustrating to you. Because it's really hard to answer that i mean it's really easy with what's called utility scale. So which is really. The fastest growing part is so where where Power providers build these massive fields of solar panels and their mega forms and every year. The ones being built or larger than the year before and nowhere is so. We're being installed more in the united states now. Utility scale than state of texas where so where can generate power far far cheaper even with drawback of intermittent power where when the sun's shining the panels are just sitting there the power is so cheap generated from the seller that the combination of solar and wind in texas year after year after year people's power bills. Keep going down. It's a free market in taxes and the market gravitates to wherever the cheapest source of power is and it's solar and wind especially solar these days so then somebody asked me about their house. And i'm like. I don't know i mean i love having it. But the payback term is really hard to calculate and it was a wonderfully written long form story on wired from someone who went through the struggle in fact. It's funny. I installed solar power system in my house in an attempted energy resilience. The constraints and the headaches were greater than i anticipated. And it goes through all the issues they were involved I and figuring out the payback. The economics of doing so and the reality is the cost of solar panels themselves have collapsed in recent years down nearly ninety percent from where they were ten years ago but installing solar at a home the cost the panels only part of it is. There's engineering studies involved in figuring out where to place them building the The supports that. Go on your specific roof. Although some of the technologies have become more modular more flexible a lot of its labor with the installation. And all that so it's not a slam dunk but the math gets better and better over time. But it's more a mixture of art and science trying to figure out what your payback cycle will be of course. Unless you really overpay for it you're gonna get a payback. Is just how quick. The second part of the whole puzzle is what's going to make solar compelling within the next three to four years and that is the cost of batteries backing up the system or dropping. The cost batteries dropping so quickly and the efficiency those batteries rising so fast that by twenty twenty three twenty. Four right in there. Doing sewer with battery and combination at a resident is going to be a no brainer and eventually the batteries are going to be cheap enough. That people will be able to degrade and essentially like in the original star. Wars movie from was that forty years ago. They'll be able to d grid and live with their own power plant at their own house.

"engineering studies" Discussed on Discover Lafayette
"I wanted to look back on the history of Chameleon Boulevard since you're situated there. I don't know if you're familiar with all the sped Back in nineteen fifty to the city of Lafayette recognized. That Pin Hook Road. Couldn't handle all of the traffic. The next twenty nine years feasability studies were conducted to determine the best placement of a grudge over the Romanian to effectively move traffic. And I can tell you as an aside when I moved here in eighty three I. I couldn't figure out how to get around laugh so finally just to share this with you. In nineteen eighty-one there was a route study by domain Zaba own associates recommending the Camelia Boulevard route on August fourth a bond issue which included the Chameleon Boulevard extension was voted and approved on but then a citizens group called save. Our subdivision was formed to oppose the construction on March eighteenth. Nineteen eighty-three mayor. Douglas Strap announced his recommendation to the city council. That quote we construct a four lane river crossing at the table of art on the south side of Lafayette so environmental and Engineering Studies were done citizens. Continue to protest In one thousand nine hundred five the Camilla Boulevard project was included in a bond referendum and approved. Lafayette voters fast forward to Nineteen ninety-three alternatives. Were still being looked at but in April of ninety three the report recommended construction and more environmental assessments were done in nineteen ninety. Six Lafayette Consolidated Council adopted a resolution directing that the committee boulevard bridge become a top priority in ninety nine and January contractors began moving homes from the corridor in two thousand one in August. The contract for construction of bridge and the section of Roadway between settlers trace boulevard and Cambridge. Dry was awarded in on September eighth two thousand three a ribbon. Cutting ceremony was held to declare the bridge officially open. So you probably were not aware of all of us not being you know in the Lafayette area but this was a major controversy. And right where you're situated in. Once it opened people just went. Oh this is nice you know. Yeah so you're situated right there in the middle of a great area of Lafayette and yet I know things have kind of come to a halt as far as dining in and the whole restaurant industry if we can pick back up our conversation about what's going on nail. Yeah that was. We actually did a ribbon. Cutting the on the tenth anniversary two in fourteen at the restaurant to to to to celebrate the the bridge which has just been huge for Local Denison in Lafayette Transit and opening up. Wait easier ways to get to young's Ville two just anywhere get anywhere and all the other places that just exploded so it was the biggest thing I think ever happened yet looking back how it was a to to to where it is now is river ranch perception when we first got there was you know it. It's the best community or mixed development. Whatever they call it. I've I've ever been in still today going around country in different places. I'm like just blown away by the way they built. It is just perfectly done and Steve. The architect and Robert Gaggle right here. It's the quality safe. It's it's it's just really well done so in. Every body told us the best location you know anywhere by the river and as we were lucky enough to to buy a coup to Sean New Orleans. Out and twenty thousand out to be. I think they will. They will they went. Does this for like nine months. Gosh when they knew they read the writing on the wall and and being that the Donald Link was a friend and In in his father in law's would come the restaurant Baton Rouge. They knew that we would be able to to make it work so we bought by the mom out and it was a huge success. Difference if you can touch on that what did you bring? You know to turn that around. What was it that well Rodrick brought it out? We'll restaurants restaurants differ so many different ways personality. Wise culture will. What's your message? What are you? What are you trying to achieve? And we headed down rouge with something Special Ed With Lsu you know. The local ties the energy that we brought music The lie all the all the things that that that I brought all the are the intangibles or the outside of the food. It's more about the energy in the fun. And the lighting the way we set up tables and the way we set up a private parties in US. Energizing the place and we brought. We brought that to a place that just whether they're the way looked at it was. It was all about the food shop driven. They WanNa Kinda hippie kind of place and just you know you have to. You have to. You have to match the community. That just didn't did not do that. They didn't have a good friendship with with the community. You really have to distinguish yourself. Do you know every town has has multiple different restaurants. You have so many places you go you see one time. I laugh yet. It's different as were I noticed is the most restaurants or casual dining Many white tablecloth restaurants. And that's where we are but we'll white tablecloth but we're also fun and and kind of kind of a casual fund fine dining if you WANNA call it which I knew there was a niche for in Lafayette people. Were looking for a place to call their own. Stephanie Cox such a great job at Ala Fonda in history of of their barber their bar so small you know is just. It's it's it's you know. People were looking for a place to meet with large watch parties and we hit that. We hit that niche and it was It was fun because of the people that I knew in the beginning that we would. You know hurt. Their does is like Charlie. Good to the Charlie. Jeez it but he reached out and I became what I did from a from a marketing standpoint because when I bought it in nothing was January. We didn't open till may look between January and May I lived in Lafayette. You know I basically you've got an apartment. And when every and let people went to charity events what to political events met every new a lot of people already for my connections and we had a following from are bad restaurant but it was it was really It was really just kind of a an easy transition for me because from tip and I have the the Cajun heritage and it was it was fun and the grand opening was huge in the next few years until the gas. Kinda take a little bit Just I don't know of a restaurant that had had an opening that anywhere. I've never seen anything like it. So but the good thing. Is You know even with a with a struggling industry when you find good managers Like I have with Christmas Lotto Greg Harmon Katie. Gd's and Legionella Chefs Estevan. And James. I have a crew that this is so amazing. They keep the consistency in the culture in the funding. The whole deal right that were you know. It's easy to t t to to keep it going so his on staff right now with the shutdown. I've kept almost salary the the people I just mentioned who are on salary so matters. I have my salary managers and chefs in Lafayette Salary. Managers and chefs in the actual takeout. Business is able to pay for their their salaries. You know we'd get into the little. The government help out and all that but but the majority of our our casual right now is takeout with is a lot. It's only maybe ten percent of the sales. Were doing less but it still. It's still enough to help them out. And you know. Our employees are on unemployment. But they're ready to get off and come back to work which we have to figure out how to get them to work to do because we can't open for business the biggest mess if your staff is Servers that are Contract right I mean they're just hourly term. Let a part-time college. You know to college driven market like Baton Rouge you will. You will support. We support you. Support US and we. That's the majority of our of our service. Staff is students and from the area so they may live with their parents. Also they doing doing okay is just. They want to go back to work. Yeah just sitting in their their apartments our homes and nothing to do all day to play. Xbox have beer palm parties or whatever it is it gets old and they they WANNA give they WANNA get back and start having fun more working with people would. They would their born into hospitality industry. I'm even mentioned to me that you're baton. Rouge restaurant is actually busier at this point. Just because I guess the economy's different in Baton Rouge Big Bear. It's there but it's not as big as our economy restaurant kind of flight. The other one is at the weights ron or are they separate. It's Dan Rutz. Helping are more than anything else right now because of the The amount of sales are able to do takeout wise Lafayette has some big nights. But it just you could see the you know what I mean yesterday with the old down a negative for the first time ever whatever this is GonNa be a tough night you know and it was. I mean people are. People are are are getting anxious about their future and their livelihood. And you know they're able to spend and they look at US wearing river ranch. We we buy the best food that service and all that even though we have amazing prices right now with the with the family meals and all the things that we're doing is still perceived as a as a higher expense restaurant that people people are holding onto their dollars right now which I understand. I love your menu. I was looking at the family. Take OUT FOR FOUR. Some great dummy options. I mean this is fantastic. Yeah the Seafood Aaron Cheney. I've never had that thought. God this is probably the time to try things like that that you know. Just to to perk up Middle of the week. But can you talk about what's going on locally You'd mentioned to me that The local restaurant association is looking ahead. you guys work together as a as a team when you look at the industry the region absolutely. We've been a part of the restaurant association from the get-go in Always very involved in the the government part of it at lobbying and all the stuff that we need to do to to make sure industry strong because South Louisiana's known for anything it's known for hospitality restaurants and Food and service in who we are and you know Wong great restaurant town Baton Rouge Lafayette..
Everything You Wanted to Know About Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART)
"I bring you in here because we wanna do effectively like a art special. We get a ton of questions about Bart and you are as far as I'm concerned. The expert in my life. Oh okay well. I'm flattered to hear that. How long have you been covering transit and paying attention to what Barnabas well you know. I've paid attention to what bar does since the mid seventy S.. That's when I moved here and I started taking Bart right then. I think my first Bart ride was nineteen seventy-three. I went to a warriors game when the system was no more than in a year old. What was your first impression. When I came out here. Fart was sort of this rumor. It had gotten national coverage right because they were doing all this crazy he stuff. They were going to go eighty miles an hour. The was much faster than the commute trains went in Chicago. It seems space age and The shape of the cars configuration of the cars that was different from anything I had seen so yeah. It was a cool experience and the other thing was it. was you know it was kind of cheap. Listen there was a time when the short hop rides were twenty five cents. Actually that was just in downtown Oakland in downtown San Francisco although a quarter got a lot further in nineteen seventy three than it does today. I mean things are really different. I mean listen. The other thing about this system was it was not heavily used in the past ten years. Here's the ridership just skyrocketed when the economy came back after the great recession. And that's really one of the chief reasons we've had such a crisis of crowding. Well I think that kind of tease us up to a couple of questions that we got from listeners So this first one comes from mark and he wants to know in. Its nearly fifty years of existence. Why has taken so long to extend into Santa Clara County and only nominally portrait into San Mateo County and never expanded into any any of the North Bay counties. Well there's a complicated history to that but I mean the simple version is that Bay Area Counties had the choice of opting into Bart art in the early sixties and some opted out Santa Clara and San Mateo opted out. There was some talk about a going up to the North Bay going to Marin that history is even more complicated there were engineering studies at showed it was feasible to put a track below the roadway on the Golden Gate Bridge and get the trains over. There were three engineering studies. That found that was fine. One sponsored by the Golden Gate Bridge district did not support that idea but that was on the table and when San Mateo County opted out the backers of Bart then no longer thought that the Marin idea would be feasible so they sort of pulled back on that and in the meantime you know the Golden Gate Bridge district never really liked the idea because back then Bart would have been competition for the service they were offering so far has only gone into Santa Clara and San Mateo detail in recent history because the people in those counties decided they wanted barred. Well I WANNA go back to the early days of the the beginning of Bart. We've got a question from listener. Who wants to know. How did they build the underwater tunnels for Bart. So this is one of the great epochs of the Bart Construction Story It took years and years to design the system that they used and the tube was built in sections they would build the sections in pieces that were longer within a football field and then when they were done with all that work they would tow the section of the tube out into the bay and then they would lower the tube which was sealed both ends down to its location which was of course very precisely marked and divers would join join the sections of Tube together one at a time so that joining the meant they were being welded together and bolted and the to was resting in a shallow trench that had been dug before the sections were brought out? So it took about three years of actual construction auction to get that all together. And that's the Tube we have today the other thing the other aspect I find fascinating is that you know you're actually going down. Pretty pretty steeply sides of the bay where you start up on the Oakland. And you're you're above ground say fifty feet and then you you the plunge under the bay this thing is a one hundred and thirty feet below the bay and then you have to come up on the San Francisco side to connect to the tunnel at Embarcadero cricket hero. The experiences a writer is pretty flat. You kinda feel you're just going straight across. Oh that's right. There are a couple of places where you actually change elevation under the water and It doesn't really feel like you're going up or down but that's exactly what you're doing. Let's get to our next question now. I WANNA go down into the Bart Stations. A couple parts ten questions. So this comes from Brad Meier. I've noticed that they're empty. Newsstands at some stations. What is the history. And why are they closed. And they could provide jobs to vendors in income to Bart. I'm asking because other transit systems around the country have newsstands open in their stations. So we came down to Bart's Montgomery Street station to answer Brad's question and standing looking at where one of these kiosks ask stood. Listen to deal with those kiosks was it was mainly an outlet for the chronicle and examiner the to San Francisco. Newspapers both are still in existence. They used to have a joint operating agreement and so vendors deal both of them. The Kiosk were actually very limited in size so not really amenable to the much bigger business. But the main thing that's happened is the newspapers Don't circulate by selling on the street anymore. Selling and Transit Stations Asians and that's due to the Internet and its do smartphones where people are carrying that information with them instead of having a paper medium in terms arms of whether these could be re purposed for another kind of business. Well maybe but again they're small A bit smaller. You're perhaps in the ones that you see in New York and Chicago and some other cities but the other thing is those kiosks generally sell other kinds of goods so food and Barton generally inside the station's discourages consuming food. We know that from a very recent famous incident where somebody was detained cited for eating breakfast sandwich at the Pleasant Hill station. Those are the main considerations and why these kiosks just aren't going going thing anymore but there is one sort of cool thing about this kiosk if you actually walk over to where used to stand here at the eastern end of the Montgomery Street concourse. Here's an audio effect. If you stand exactly where the kiosk was. Here's kind of an echo chamber here and is right for experimentation enjoy writing and now we have to go catcher train all right well. Let's get to our next question. I'm Jay Quigley and I live even Oakland at West Oakland Bart Station. Their ads right next to the third rail. How on Earth did they change those out without getting electrocuted. I asked this question because every time I look at the third rail I get terrified. Well you know the third rail is something you don't WanNa touch under any circumstances it's very high voltage and Instant death or at least extremely serious injury if you do come into contact with it so what they do is You Know Bart is shut down for a part of every day. Trains really stop running around one. Am and then. There's a window of time between one and four in the morning when a lot of maintenance activity takes place they shut down the third rail. I was told by Jim. Allison at Bart that they call it laying down a blanket. Meaning you know making that area like as if you're covering the rail with a blanket to make it safe they're not physically doing that and then Once the rails are de energized than the workers can work safely there
Oregon's Ghost Town That Fell Into The Sea
"Hidden history. About a town that washed into the ocean between Oregon's against Tillamook Bay and the sea. There's a narrow sandy peninsula or one hundred years ago a town stood and not just any town one of the biggest biggest towns on the Oregon coast with a municipal swimming pool. Half the length of a football field warm salt water washed in how to serve generator. The reason reason it's gone today the entire town because the residents paid to build a jetty to make their steamship journey smoother. The Jetty Changed Ocean. Concurrence the ocean washed away the town the residents had paid for their own destruction. Bay Ocean got it started in nineteen six when a real estate developer named T. B. Potter. Got Hold of it and plotted the town potter. Thought big over the next few years she sold off sixteen hundred hundred lots and built a large hotel a dance hall and that's Swimming Pool. I talked about a mammoth structure right by the beach. So Potter thought big. But his actual execution was more of mid-size. He promptly installed telephone network in Bay Ocean which worked great for local calls across town. The wasn't linked to the outside world. Getting fresh water was a hassle to potter build a pipeline but didn't put a booster pump on it. So the water pressure was Ashley Solo. That sometimes water would not reach some of the lots. He also installed streets made of concrete rather than dirt or sand. But it didn't matter much. No road was built to the mainland until the nineteen twenty s so most residents didn't bother with cars. Most folks arrived on Potter stinks shop the SS badge which made a three day journey from the town of Portland and a three day. Stay the steamer trip was terrifying find ordeal sometimes though of course it would have to cross the Columbia River Bar up at the bars dangers and they are legendary legendary. This last could be more scary than the bar. Crossing which at least could be kept reasonably smooth by not crossing when the tide was coming in residents started clamoring for protective jetty. The Army Corps of Engineers studied the place told them they needed to jetties one on each side at the mouth of the bay and it would cost two point. Two million dollars half of which would have to come from local residents. The residents couldn't afford to do that so they proposed a single angle jetty. A little over eight hundred thousand later it was done and they ocean soon. To be ex. Homeowners paid half each household had ponied up roughly four hundred fifty dollars which in nineteen seventeen was enough to buy one and a half brand new Ford model ts and for a while things. Things were great. The steamship pride was much more pleasant without coming across the open ocean but then something odd started started happening. Baoshan's Broad Sandy. Beach started getting a little less broad than it started getting a lot. Less broad finally in nineteen thirty two waves chiefs from a massive storm crossed the beach and destroyed the massive seaside swimming all from there got worse and worse. The hotel started falling room and by room into the sea. Each one of the seat got further in by nineteen. Thirty eight fifty. Nine homes were gone finally in the early early fifties the C. breached the spit and brushed into Tillamook Bay turning Baosheng into an island instantly. Multimillion Dollar Oyster. Fishery was ruined a thousand acres of oyster beds buried in sand salinity in the base surge. The estuary fisheries started to collapse. The government's sprang into action building. Rip Raps seawall across the gap to keep the sea out some time after that. In the early nineteen seventy second jetty. Jetty was added it solve the problem with the currents and the sand started building itself. Backup on the spit but it was too late for bay ocean by then the entire entire town was

And then the third point as far as the expansion and paying for win. He's he's right in this sense that any new generation that we that we allow into the grid is the result of requests for proposals from our utility companies. The they were those contracts to new developers and the developer creates new generation. Oh, doesn't engineering study deter Espy pitas, an engineering studied determines what kind of infrastructure improvements need to be made in those costs are applied to to the developer. And so now regard the colors parsley. Right. But that new generation would be paid for whether it's win Cole. Nuclear or something else. He started with a concern over the, you know, the subsidies and a texture piggybacks on that said if wind energy had to survive without special tax incentives could it do. So so first of all. Is the reason it's cheapest because of tax incentives in other words will that change when the when the production tax credit goes away? The the reason that the it's cheapest has been because of the production tax credit that that's federal tax policy has been in place for a couple of decades and that has generated the the development of windy. Evolution of win. I agree with that. I mean, not necessarily agree with the tax policy. But it is the law of the land. Like, I said that tax credit is going away at the end of this year, and the the wind developers that I know that have been talking about this. There's no incentive no interest in trying to pursue renewal of that production tax credit and so win. We'll stand on its own without the federal subsidy in in short order, and so the clients that I deal with say, quite frankly that they're they're prepared to.
Emanuel Luhn, longtime owner of Jeffreys Toys, dies at 93
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Emmanuel loon longtime owner of Jeffries toys dies at ninety three. By me. Russell from business. Emanuel, Manny loon who owned a chain of bay area stores known to generations of children for the assortment of hard. Find toys before the business was whittled down to one location. Jeffries toys has died. He was ninety three loon died of heart failure October twenty third at his danville. Home said son, Geoffrey loom, for whom the store was named manual loon earned a reputation as the big kid at the store chains center and was remembered by his children for setting off water rockets at Berkeley traffic intersection outside one of his shops and building towers of toys just to see how high he could stack them Jeffries toys, located in San Francisco's financial district since two thousand seventeen is still humming amid a difficult time for toys stores. It's outlasted toys R us and survived the arrival of e commerce. Mark loon. His eldest son took over Jeffrey's toys nearly three decades ago and remains its owner. He just was not a get rich build an empire kinda guy said Jeffrey loon a photographer. He just worked really really hard. He never criticized anybody, but people wanted to please him because he was a nice, man. Born on April eighteenth, nineteen twenty five Emanuel loon grew up in Oakland with his mother, and father birdie and Morton and older, brother. Joel the family owned a general store. Birdies variety store that sold everything from housewares to hardware in the nineteen thirties after World War, Two more Americans had young children and demand for toys boomed with the population birdie and Morton loon opened birdies toy house in San Leandro in nineteen forty eight and steered their son into the toy business when he returned from his service in the Marine Corps. He left behind his engineering. Studies at San Jose State university. The store chain grew with new locations in San Francisco. Daly city, Berkeley, walnut creek and Hayward. Emmanuel loon, married his teenage sweetheart Mildred and they had three children twins, Mark and Stevie and Jeffrey the children were of course, drafted into the toy business. Mark loon said he was the buyer for the hobby department by the time he was twelve when the children were young the loons lived in the bedroom community of San Lorenzo where people deck their front yards with elaborations at Christmas time, the spectacle, drew so many sightseers it required police to direct traffic. Jeffrey loon said the men in the neighborhood would take turns dressing as Santa Claus and handing out candy canes to children, Emmanuel loon would take his turn.
