L.a.'s New COVID Vaccination Proof Rules Go in Effect Today

"So today, is it today? I think it is, right? So let me get this straight in Los Angeles. I'm broadcasting from right outside Los Angeles. Glendale, California. Which is its own city, so in Glendale, at this point, do you have to show a vaccination certificate? To get into a restaurant or wait so long that is a hair salons, nail salons, the like, that's LA county, correct? And that I believe does begin today. No, no, LA county. I think so. I think so, 'cause I live in LA county not in LA city and I don't believe I can get a haircut. Where I live. That that's my take a look. So look it up. Ellie county salons. Put that. I think that would probably get it cut it for you. But anyway, in LA, listen to this from the Los Angeles Times, which of course is for anything that the bribes people of freedom except abortion. Is this the beginning of the end Kim prince asked during a recent phone call? We have been in a period of pivot pivot pivot. I just want to fry chicken. A Monday prince who owns hot ville restaurant in the Baldwin hills Crenshaw mall, and all other restaurants in the city of Los Angeles will have to pivot again to comply with a new ordinance that requires customers to show proof of a vaccine, or a negative COVID-19 test. To dine indoors. Enforcement of the ordinance which covers shopping malls, movie theaters, beauty saloons and other indoor activities will start November 29th.

"The economy The LA city council then voted to make that transition by 2035 a decade earlier than originally planned Jason plows a freelance reporter who covers politics and the environment says the strategies outlined in the report include shutting down gas generating plants deploying more solar wind and battery storage and piloting green hydrogen Beyond the generating side they're looking at adding solar panels to single-family and multi-family homes that would be rooftop solar that can supply some of the power They're looking at electrifying buildings electrifying transportation In fact they're looking at so much electrification of buildings and transportation that LADWP the Los Angeles department of water and power says they're going to double the amount of electricity that they produce by 2035 just to meet that expected demand The city's strategy also includes an equitable hiring plan What that means is communities in Los Angeles that have previously been affected by coal and gas fired power generation are going to be sort of front of the line when it comes to hiring for these renewable energy jobs clean energy jobs installing solar panels making this transition Cloud says that commitment to addressing environmental injustice will mean closing down gas plants inside city limits that disproportionately pollute certain neighborhoods and making sure no community is left out of the transition That could include incentives that help lower the cost of electrification or installing renewable energy on homes in some of these neighborhoods that could include direct outreach from the city to hear what these communities want to see LA's goal of all clean energy by 2035 is more ambitious than most of its peers But plaud says many utilities across the country have made carbon free or net zero commitments by mid century Arizona public service says a 100% in carbon free by 2050 A vista corp which is based in Washington state says a 100% by 2045 Dominion Energy which is based in Virginia and serves some states in the southeast They're saying net zero emissions by 2050 do energy a 100% by 2050 Idaho power a 100% clean energy by 2045 Those are mostly just voluntary pledges however without binding requirements Still plowed says there are several factors driving these shifts State renewable energy standards pressure from cities that buy power from utilities and are making their own carbon commitments and the fact that prices of renewable energy continue to drop So certainly these goals have pushed utilities have showed them where the market is heading is showing what their customers want to do But yes on the other hand the market's moving in this direction And if you're an investor owned utility you're looking at the bottom line Los Angeles is far from the only city setting emissions reductions goals As nations gear up to meet at the cop 26 climate summit plaud says these moves on the local level can carry real weight The commitments we're seeing from cities and states and utilities really work as a bottom up approach to reach those goals It's not just about what the Biden administration or what the federal government says A lot of it has to do with what cities states counties and utilities and even private businesses are doing which can add up to reach those emissions goals Cloud sites a recent report from Bloomberg philanthropies which found that cutting emissions from the power sector 83% below 2005 levels can make up more than half of the total reductions the U.S. needs to meet its Paris climate goals For climate one I'm Ariana brocious Listening to a conversation looking ahead to what's in store at the climate.

I can tell you not only hollywood but venice has been a disaster. I tell you you know. Homeless has been attacks on our our business. It's been attacked on our tourism. I'm one of fifteen council members and my my my colleagues. Don't agree with me that we need to have consequences when people on the streets are offered shelter and they refused to go in. Okay that's called enabling. Sure as called ebeling allowed people to destroy themselves. The mental health laws in california are failing. Those folks who are not in the mind frame to say yes to help dr passion. I i spoke to drew and he told me. Don't ever disagree with adam curle before you but drew and i were talking the same language here. We need to redefine gravely disabled. But at the same time. If we don't have by the way we have over a thousand beds available last night in. La a thousand beds available. Okay you had this governance structure that's called l. A. homeless services authority. That is a failure. I'm calling to To end it because they're not giving us real time data on who says yes to help. Who says no to help. And we need that data information or no. Who were helping. Were not helping well. Is there a tell me if this is. The phenomenon are the new world order. Were living in and if this is what's happening because it feels. I feel this way so i'll set.

But there's five wight karen's that one latina so now. We have to discuss this. You know what i mean. It's gotta be thing and we gotta argue over it and it's got to be official. Nobody latino people don't give two shits about latinos they don't like latina but yet it's sort of forced on us and i feel like the homeless. It's like a couple of city council members feckless worthless city council members and then a small group of homeless advocates. Whatever the fuck that means idiots who anointed themselves experts in homelessness and then there's tire rest of society and the entire society wants these people move. They want them to get help. They went the same thing. You want to shelter if you can't get a shelter then we've got to put you somewhere else. We gotta get you cleaned up. We gotta get you help and mental services. That's what everyone wants. And there's like five people that are saying no you gotta say latino and then the rest of us going oh wherever they know something or something. How do we get these people out of here. It's not the homeless people. Everyone's guys how do we get the homeless people. How do we get there. Five assholes are the advocates in the la city council. That are ruining this whole thing for everyone. The homeless just homeless. They're going to do what we let them. Do this sober people that make the horrible decisions that make that exacerbates promise. Its worst month in and month out and they keep their jobs. Cancel and tell the shut. The fucked up.

But it's such a small minority of the populace who agrees with those people. Somehow they someone gave them all bullhorns bully pulpits and the rest of us are hanging around thinking that that's the way the wind is blowing. It's not it's the same with latina like no. Nobody thinks that wakes up for five people but they get the bullhorns. We lost sense of common sense. Running job usscaonaar dot com. Come on board.

E3 2021's Live Event Has Been Cancelled According to LA City Documents

"Eight three twenty. Twenty one's live event has been cancelled according to the la city documents. This is an interesting one. I'm pulling from adam. Bankers agian according to los angeles city documents e. Three twenty twenty. One fiscal event has officially been cancelled as spotted by a new report published by the board of los angeles convention and tourism development commission. States that the three twenty twenty one live event is cancelled and that the city is working with the production team on broadcast options at l. e. live slash. La convention center furthermore is working with the espn licenses for both twenty twenty. Two and twenty twenty three. This follows as confirmation that e three twenty twenty one would still be happening and that the would be transforming the e three experience for twenty twenty. One we can't confirm we are transforming the e three experience for twenty twenty one and we'll soon share exact details and how we're bringing the global video game community together. Tim this one comes off of about a month ago. Got a report from vga and they talked about how they had. They had reports of either working low form of e three take place across multiple days where they were gonna go digital And this is something that hasn't necessarily publicly talked about yet. They haven't publicly announced this. But now we're getting confirmation from the essay that it seems like e three at the very least will not be held physically at the convention center. Tim what is your take on this. I think this is one of those things. That's very surprising especially given where the world's at right now that we're not going to have a physical e three but i don't think the headline here's a little bit misleading. Where he threw twenty two hundred live. Event has been canceled canceled because it was ever announced. So it's just one of those things where it's like this is coming from the la city documents or whatever. I imagine that the plan going into this year was never for three to have. Its live component at l. Acc and. i'm sure this is all just like back in legal staff of they've had that spot every year for so long or at least most years so i'm sure that was part of their like first writers refusal type thing Do you guys want to take this or not. But that's it was always going to be. No because i imagine based on what we heard couple months ago. Esa's planning digital event. I very much think that is the case. That's what we will see here and talking about the quote here of their working with the production team broadcast options. Ellie live in l. c. c. Like that's that totally makes sense to me like even if it's a digital event they still need production facilities and they've always had production facilities at those different places that are within a block and a half radius each other so i'm not surprised by this at all. I honestly don't think it's a bad thing either like the world's not ready to go back to live conventions so why even worry about

Travel to Tbilisi and Eastern Georgia

"The traveler. I'm your host Chris. Christensen let's talk about Georgia. I like to welcome back to the show. Tomo and Mexi from food FUN TRAVEL DOT COM who've come to talk to us about the Republic of Georgia's we're gonNA start with intimacy and head east. Tomo it makes me welcome back to the show. Hey thanks as always glad to be on the shore tomorrow makes me Williams. I didn't say your last name. Yes that's not married since we love to see you thank you. I didn't mention that I think because I not used to referring you'd as the same last name and someone makes me. We're on the show once previously in Philippines wherever the Yucatan Mexico you could join. That's right that's right. The more recent episode we have on the Yucatan merita excellent will. Why are we talking about the Republic of Georgia well? We actually moved to Tbilisi about a year ago. It's our third time living here the second time where here. We got married here a few months after that we decided we actually wanted to live here permanently and now we do so. We used to live in Merida Mexico for a while. That's why we talked to you about that a couple of years ago and now we live Tbilisi so when you say permanently. This is permanently from the context of a travel blogger which means more than a couple of months. I think this is more permanent than decisions. Cassia already almost a year and we've got no intention of leaving at this point. And why should someone else come to the Republic of Georgia? I would say the main draw here is firstly. It's quite undiscovered. It's a little bit out of the way for most travelers but it's beginning a huge amount of press internationally recently especially because of the food and the wine. It is the birthplace of wine according to the most recent archaeological evidence. And but yeah and that's eight thousand years old eight thousand years ago. They found pottery stained with wine from eight thousand years ago so at a definitive evidence that it was actually going on. People were making wine and drinking wine interesting. And what kind of itenerary are you going to recommend for US? So obviously there will be some wine to try but there's also a lot of history here because we're right in the e east-meets-west sort of area. We are nestled between the Caspian Sea and Black Sea with Russia to the north and Turkey to the South West and on Mesnier and Azerbaijan to the south and the east. So there's been a huge influence of all these different coaches for the itinerary. We're GONNA start off in the capital Tiblisi and it is quite a big city with a lot of history so this was founded in the fifth century. Ad. So it has been around for a long time. There's lots of different things to see when you fly in on the first day the flights that come in from the US and via Turkey or quite early. Morning arrivals cold yes. So we'd say the first day that you'RE GONNA be here. It's probably going to be a solid half day of recovering and sleeping and then you have like a half day in the afternoon to go out and see some things and then enjoy the evening and then have a secondary Tiblisi. It's quite a fun city and there's a lot to do here day. Three we'd be heading east towards Kakheti. Which is the primary Wine Region? But of course it's also a very historic region that changed hands between different cultures the Persians Arabs. And of course the Jordan's at the moment firstly we'd be heading to the hill town. Well it's a mountain town of Cigna guy the city of La City of love actually a town. But it's very beautiful nestled on a little hilltop with views down the valley and towards the Caucasus Mountains in the distance the next day staying in the wine region and moving too quickly which is right down in the valley. It's like a very central part of the wine region down there where the river valley runs through where the river runs through the Amazon Valley is the name of the valley and then day five heading north through the valley towards to Lavi which is the capital of Kakheti region. Kakheti actually used to be an independent state for a while as well with separate from Georgia. Now it's integrated with Georgia Day six. We'll be heading back towards Tiblisi through Tiblisi. And then there's a number of important historic sites just north of Tiblisi which include the ancient capital before Tiblisi. Which is called mosquito and also hopeless. Which is an ancient cave town slightly to the west of mosquito and also towards. Gori which was the birthplace of Stalin. And this will wind in that area for people who are real wine lovers. You can have some different wine region. They different groups in different regions. Definitely thinks to explore and then heading back on the seventh day towards Tbilisi so that people can catch they're flying out or if people flying out of Kutaisi. Which is the other main airport then heading from gory towards Kutaisi. Which is about a three hour drive so this couple of flexible options bad us the refinery excellent and we'll go back through that in more detail so before we get into that we should say that although it may be undiscovered it's not undiscovered on amateur travellers to other episodes of the first one at least ten years ago and the second one more recently and so we'll put links to those in the show notes and Tillman makes me have listened to the most recent one of those two so some of the things that are mentioned in there they may skip over. We'll see how that works for time but you started us in Tiblisi. Yeah so let's talk about. Maybe doing a walking tour covers some of the attractions. A few of these mentioned in the previous episode. But it's definitely worth mentioning a few of them again just briefly so that people get a general feel for it. Yes I mean generally in Tiblisi. It's this really vibrant city to visit. You can go out almost any time of day or night. And they'll be people out and about doing stuff in a good wholesome way. There's like restaurants that are our opinion as Baas. The repin sort of dining really is a little bit anytime. A food and wine is exceptionally important. Culturally he'll and as I mentioned earlier. It is surrounded by all of these really strong cultures. But when you actually come to Georgia and come to Tbilisi you'll realize just how unique the culture is here as well so there are definitely influences from those other places but it is very very strongly George into the core. They have their own alphabet one of the unique alphabets of the world. Always done that. Okay so some people say that has some similarity to Amin but when you look at it really doesn't lie. The symbols of very very different says a completely unique alphabet and lots of unique words and the way people pronounce stuff tight is one of the hardest languages to learn. For sure will. In one of the things I've always had trouble with with Georgia in on the amateur travellers site is I take every country and I- lump it into a continent and Georgia. I have placed in Europe. But you look at a map and it looks like I don't know what I'm talking about. Yeah exactly I think Georgia in particular would consider themselves Europe and I think visiting. Here's a country. I also would just architecturally and culturally. I would consider it Europe as well definitely like Eastern Europe. But as you said if you look on a map would probably consider it to be Asia. I sometimes have a hard time putting my time zones in I can never find Tiblisi in a time when I'm changing from different countries. It's because it's always like nestled in Asia. But I think I would definitely say Europe and if we head straight south would get to Armenia Iran and Iraq and so Armenia. I would also be one of those that I would put in Europe culturally but Iran Iraq. I was certainly not Oshawa. John is just to the east and Turkeys just to the West. But it's the usual part of Turkey's eight is one of those as you say regions where cultures meet. Yes and I think at least from that perspective. It's because of the Orthodox religion right the Docs Christianity. I founded in Armenia in the fourth century or late third century century earlier than that. Armenia was the first Christian nation the first nation where Christianity became the main religion so it predates Rome becoming Christian in the three hundreds in Georgia was the second country they took on not too long after that. The estimate is somewhere between three nine three twenty six. Ad Different people have different opinions. And that was when Georgia took on the Orthodox religion poorly Al mentioned a little bit about that when we talk about some of the important attractions that relate to that a bit later on.
