Los Angeles Pilots Program to Try 'Colorblind' Foster Care Decisions
"Los angeles department of child and family services is launching a pilot program called blind removal. Now this is the government agency that deals with child welfare issues. Dcfs is the government agency that also makes decisions about whether or not a child should be removed from home Based on the safety of that household. Now i i wanna tell you more about this blind removal pilot program because what it has to do with is the overrepresentation of children of color within the foster care system meaning the children who are typically removed from these households happen to have parents who are black or latino and it looks as though there might be issues with some implicit bias in the decisions that are made so blind. Removal is Meant to take the race component out of it as social workers are deliberating in regard to whether or not they remove a child from a home. So i wanna tell you how the numbers look right now so you can understand why this is a problem. So for instance. Seven percent of children in los angeles county are black while twenty four percent of those removed from their homes from last april to this march were black according to the la county department of children and family services. Twenty percent of children in the county are white with twelve percent of those removed. So as you can see there's an overrepresentation of black children. Being taken out of their household moved out of their households now. Three quarters of children removed from their homes in la. Two thousand twenty. Where either black. Or latino

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted unanimously this week to recommend historic status to a Diego Rivera mural at the San Francisco Art Institute. Here to explain is KQED, Sarah Hodgkiss and Sarah. This was initiated because the Art institute is considering selling the mural which could fetch up to $50 million to pay off a big loan. Yes, and what the borders Supervisors did on Tuesday was began the process of landmark designation for this 1931 mural. Now the Planning Department and the Historic Preservation Committee will weigh in and write about the historical significance of the mural, essentially creating a dossier about it. And then the supervisors will review that once again and decide finally how to vote. So what is the significance of this mural? So it's just one of three Diego Rivera murals that we have here in San Francisco, and the Mirror's name is the making of a fresco showing the building of a city. So it portrays some of the historic figures that are linked to San Francisco history. And it also depicts the industrial workers who actually Built the city. It's emblematic of digger various practice, and I imagine the Art institute isn't too happy about this move. Yes, so as if the eye is a small school with a storied history, and it's had a lot of financial troubles over the years for a variety of different reasons. The board of S FBI were some of the only voices on Tuesday they were arguing with the supervisors to not give landmark status to the mural, at least not yet. So the mural is S FBI's most valuable asset, and the board wants flexibility to use it to secure a bridge loan, which they say is essential to get them through the pandemic and beyond. That was KQED artist Sarah Hodgkiss will tweet out a link to her story.

We're keeping you abreast of traffic reports here. Kind of surprised Luca's. I thought, Donald scare tactics. All the naughty, naughty Don't get together. No Thanksgiving for you. You're You're rude and your risky and you're uncaring if you have Thanksgiving this year, but all that, would you be dead by Christmas, So get your will in order. Is that what exactly? Uh, but if you take a look at the traffic people are traveling this weekend. Uh, Apparently, there's only a 10% reduction in air Travel. Uh, San Diego County. Um voters did a survey USA Pole for San Diego Union Tribune in 10 News. 84% of 500 adults who participated plan to stay in town for Thanksgiving. No. Of course, they're going to stay in town. Most people come to us. We don't go to them. We they come to us. There's nothing big. I mean, where's where's the comparison to last year? Um, now 60% of survey respondents said that they changed their plans due to Corona virus pandemic. I changed my plans. Usually I have maybe 15 sometimes 17 people over here at the House. This year. It's only me, my brother and my sister and their immediate family. So three families, that's it. No guests, no extras. But again, we're still having Thanksgiving and I've never, you know Typically, I don't travel. Um, question. Do you plan on doing any shopping in stores on black Friday? No 62%. Yes, 20% again. I don't know what the number is from a year ago, so there's it's hard to say whether that's extraordinary. But I don't go out on black Friday. No way. No. How? I'm not sitting there on those parking lots with all the traffic and everything. Um and I prefer to do my shopping online. You're not missing a thing that black Fridays I tried it once with my wife just to see it's horrible. That's no no, It's not a fun waiting in line to get a $5 discount on some electronic device. There's no coffee on everyone's route. Well and again shouldn't always be enjoyable. I know some people take sadistic pleasure out of saying who I save $2 on the flat screen TV. Um, not me. Because in order to save the $2 you had do abandon your your your family on Thursday night. Set up a tent and weight you know, through the cold, you know, evening and that target parking lots of the target and a target parking lot with a bunch of homeless people surrounding surrounding you. S Oh, no, no, no. I'm not surprised that those numbers are what they are. But I venture to guess there's gonna be a lot of people still having Thanksgiving and I say, Bravo! You're doing absolutely nothing wrong. That What really galls me is when a politician says, Hey, you need to do this and then turns around and does quite the opposite Governor Andrew Cuomo. Lectured everybody that they need to cancel Thanksgiving. But then he was caught in a separate interview, uh, talking about how he was gonna have Thanksgiving with his mother, Mathilde. Cause you can't forget that name Matilda and that his daughter was flying in from out of town to join them. Okay, So what? That's exactly what he's saying not to do exactly travel. You shouldn't we shouldn't fly. So hey! Later on once he was caught with that, you know, he's a let it slip. Hey. Later on clarified that his daughter had decided that it was too risky to travel. And so therefore they won't be having their traditional Thanksgiving but Matilda, his mom will still be joining him. Lucky him. Denver's mayor tweeted out, uh, avoid travel. Has the but potatoes, not the cove it Denver Mayor Michael Hancock Tweeted 30 minutes before he boarded a plane. That's right, he says. Stay home, especially if you're sick, host virtual gatherings instead of in personal in person. AH dinners. Avoid travel order your holiday meal from a local eatery shop online. And then he does what He gets on a plane to this family to visit family. Okay, Newsom is just one of many of these politicians by the way. All Democrats. Just saying, I've never met a bigger group of people who are more self entitled. These are people who say white, privileged white privilege and then what do they do? They nominate a white guy. Old guy for president. And the second place finisher finisher in that race was a ah white man 78 years old and the third place finisher was a white woman. Okay, so please spare me the notion that we've got, you know, a Democrat. Political class that's actually willing to practice what they preach. But yeah, that's what really galls me is not just the virtue, signaling and you should do this, and you should do that. It's the hypocrisy of them not following through on their own edicts, regulations and tweets. That they not modeling. Well, there's the word that Governor Newsome likes to use the modeling bad behavior, or they just caught dead handed in hypocrisy. They're hypocrites. They're morally bankrupt. They have no authority when they tweet. It should be about, uh, you know, credibility and moral high ground of, you know, Look, you know I'm a role model. I'm a public servant. You've made me your governor. I'm asking you to do this. But now they have no moral authority because this is not something they actually engage in. It's not just the policies that they enact that are troubling. It's the fact that they're absolutely hypocrites and There's no real, you know, sanction for that Now, Unless your name is Donald Trump the media completely ignores it. If you're Donald Trump. Oh, by golly, they will go after every single thing. How dare you not have boxes of Kleenex available and y peas and masks And how dare you be in the same room and they're gonna spread coveted. They will go after him with, you know, with a drop of Ah, you know of anything. And maybe rightfully so. I'm willing to at least you know, say, OK, the media should be vetting these the behavior of our elected officials. But when there's selective about it That's what the problem is again. Then it cheapens even their criticism of people like Trump for engaging in behavior that they're attacking, because you're not willing to raise it with anyone else. Even when they do touch on it. It's never with the level of bite that they use for Republicans. Even I start noticing Carla Marinucci who you talked about the story. She she characterized that the governor has switch which story We're done whether the governor's French laundry stories okay. French? Yeah, but the way they couch it like, well, he's had some problems with that story. Know that some problems with that story? He's caught red handed and hypocrisy, right? I mean, calling out the way it is. Don't don't don't apologize for him. Right that there's a story somehow, you know his stories. You know, People know the media has no credibility, so a story could be wrong or he has some problems with that story. What that is factually inaccurate. No, no, he doesn't have problems. The story. We have problems with this misconduct and call it what it is. It is misconduct. When you engage in this sort of behavior, it is misconduct to say one thing and then turn around and do another thing, particularly when the things that you're saying are also backed up by crazy mandates. An executive orders. All right, coming up.

Los Angeles tourism and hotels take serious hits from pandemic
"The hotels are doing. Industry called Leisure and Hospitality is a huge economic driver in greater L. A. It employs a lot of folks you probably know And of course, a lot of those jobs have gone away. Some of those jobs may never come back after this pandemic. The Times reports that one in four hotels Struggling to pay their mortgage and is at risk of foreclosure. Adam Burke is president and CEO of the tourism and Convention. Bored and Heather Roseman is executive director of the Hotel Association of Los Angeles. Welcome to you above Thanks so much, Steve. It's great to be on. Good morning, Heather. I want to start with you. First of all, how many hotels Does the greater Los Angeles area have The greater Los Angeles area has a combination of hotels, motels and bed and breakfasts somewhere in the neighborhood of about 1200. Do they all have to close those hotels? When everything Shut down. I'm thinking back in Middlemarch. When Ella did the stay at home orders or did some hotels managed to stay open because business was still happening, right? The hotel industry was deemed an essential business. At the beginning of the pandemic. We were working to service a couple of government projects, starting with the state of California, looking for rooms to have passengers that were disembarking from cruise ships quarantine for 14 days. From there. We started working with the L. A county to find rooms for covert isolation as well as what then evolved into Project Room Key. So that's something that we're going to talk about in a few moments here on this program, are you starting to see some of those hotels reopen again? Our people venturing out arm or tourists coming back to L. A. I mean, what kind of numbers are you seeing there? During the outside of the pandemic. Hotels did suspend operations in many cases, not knowing exactly whether or not they were allowed to be open. As of last week. We still have 38 hotels that are are closed and we're not sure if those are going to be a temporary or permanent closure, but during the pandemic 157 hotels Did shut down. Initially We are starting to see some of that leisure travel returned to the market. But as we see the occupancy rates rise, we have to consider that the hotels are still operating at a very limited crew. As thie bookings are still only about 50% maximum. Adam occupancy rate, obviously is an important number. You just heard Heather's say, 50%. What's what's the occupancy rate typically in Allah? Well, First of all, I like to reiterate what Heather said. Which is, you know, this has really been devastating for our industry with a lot of your listeners may not realize Steve is prior to the pandemic. Our leisure and hospitality sector was actually the third largest employer in Los Angeles County, representing about one out of every 8.5 jobs across the county. So While we've seen job loss of about one out of every three jobs in leisure and hospitality that's been even more dramatic for the hotel's prior to the pandemic, though, to your question we were seeing average occupancy is in the city about 83% and, you know, Fortunately, we started to see some gradual recovery. But that had declined to his low is about 20% with a lot of hotels, actually sitting in the single digits Right now we're seeing occupancies that are in the 40% range, and it really to your point is being fueled by locals. It's really Angelino starting to safely and responsibly. Get out and take staycations right here in their own backyard. I want to. I want to talk about that, because one of the things that you guys have been doing I know is pushing more Angelenos. To go out and stay in local hotels. If you're able to how do you suppose did I mean it? Is there a conflict with you guys? When you say Well, we want you to go stay at a hotel. But there is this pandemic still happening. Yeah, it's a great question. So the first of all, I will say we've actually been working with the Los Angeles Department of County Health to develop safety protocols for all the various sectors of our industry. So that we can make sure that we are protecting our guests were protecting our employees. Equally important, So the idea of pushing people to get out in about probably, I would say it a little bit differently, Which is what we've done is We've put together a program called Love, which is really by Angelinos for Angelenos. So we've put together over 100 special offers, including not just hotels, but our local attractions in restaurants so that for people who are comfortable getting out and about it's more affordable and easier to dio. And you know when people ask, what can I do? We know, for example, that if those who have the means had just three visits to a local attraction or museum, supported three of our local restaurants and had just won three night stay. In an area hotel that would actually help us recover over 21,000 jobs in L, a county and what it would inject about $1.4 billion back into our local business community. Heather, How

Put him up to trial, and if it was the old days we'd take him by the way we take him out to the local oak tree and justice would be served. Well, let's do it the proper way. Let's do it through the court system. Let's do it where he gets representation. That's right out the motivation. What motivated this individual this fuck? To go out and try to kill not just injured, but to kill two definitely sheriffs who were young, Definitely sheriff who had a career ahead of them, and hopefully they'll be able to return to duty who gives him the right to go out there and ruin their lives and cause fear and anxiety throughout this region and those stocks that go to the hospital to try and block the driveway. And yelling that the officer should die. It is absolutely pathetic. It's inhumane. What these people are doing. What message do you have for the eye witnesses who were there who didn't render aid who didn't call 911, who instead made videos where they were essentially laughing and celebrating about the fact that two police officers got shot. Well, My message to them is if you want to get some money, don't worry about the Ah, getting the job. You can raid get over $100,000, and hopefully that will increase turned the stuck in. You saw what happened. You were there. In addition, there's a lot of video cameras around those transit stations. I'm sure the sheriff's department with our investigators, and they got great investigators. They're going to find who this individual is in a very, very quick time. But get this individual off the street and send a message to anyone else who has the idea of attacking law enforcement we're going on. In crime. This is not going to be tolerated. Way call the city of Los Angeles City of the Angels. God help us. Where have the Angels departed? Have they moved to Texas in Arizona, But we stopped some angels here. That's the message is turned this person in you were there you saw you have information. Obviously, this person doesn't didn't go out there all by themselves. Maybe these individual or assisting them. But the fact is the one that pulls that trigger one that pulled that trigger on those deputies sitting in that car, doing nothing except paperwork or watching or doing whatever not approaching, not get now. The car not approaching, not stopping, not doing anything. That individual who committed that vicious crime needs to be brought to justice as quickly as possible and get off the street and send that message to everyone else..

"I'm Matt Dillon. Ah, Protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, ended with a skirmish between police and demonstrators last night in downtown L. A Clash occurred in the third Street tunnel, with officers firing less lethal rubber bullets. In an effort to break up the crowd. The protest against police brutality began peacefully and then took a turn around 11 PM when some of the crowd began spray painting graffiti on the glass doors of the U. S Bank tower. Demonstrators then marched into the third Street tunnel, where they were corralled by police officers who set up lines at both ends of the tunnel. Fighting briefly broke out between officers in riot gear and protesters before both sides pulled back. Demonstrator RC Demings told CBS, too, that the renewed push for social justice that started with the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis is not going away. This movement here is going to be better than the Martin, the King movement. Because we have all different diversified types of people joining us. I would love to see a peaceful protests. Peaceful rallies, but enough is enough. There were some arrests, although it's not immediately clear how many people were detained. The protests have taken place for three consecutive nights following Blake's shooting and the shooting deaths of two protesters and the wounding of another during demonstrations in Kenosha.

In a meeting this week, A study by a power industry research group, the Electric Power Research Institute, found that faulty natural gas compressors at the Valley generating station have been leaking more than 10,000 cubic feet of methane per hour for the last couple years. A leak that size is roughly equivalent to the emissions of 30,000 cars over the course of a year, according to the environmental groups Sierra Club. It also adds to mounting evidence that accidental releases of natural gas from energy infrastructure is a significant contributor to global climate change.

So say we don't have to walk down again. Okay? I thought I was going to tell me to wear goggles and a fez hat and tap shoes because we're always adding something to the uniforms to avoid. The Corona virus. But now he says that we can avoid having another extended shutdown to control the virus. I like that idea of tap shoes. What if everybody was wearing tap shoes? Put a little smile on your face on? I don't think that'd be good. Americans if you just follow the basic health safety measures. You don't lock down again. So saying, Look, if you do the washing your hands and wearing the mask when you need to, and social distancing and those kind of things you don't need to lock down again. Well, good. I hope everybody's listening, but know this will be the time that they don't listen to Dr Fauci. Because You gotta listen to Neil Cash. Karrie, president of the Minneapolis Federal Reserve back he was interviewed on Cbsface the nation right? And he said the best way to control the virus in the U. S. Ah, hard lock down. Hard luck, but we did a hard lock down. Well, we did a kind of heart. We did a a soft locked out. We got a hard log down where we're supposed to be 15 days to stop the spread or slow the spread really cause you can't stop it because as soon as you open up again, it's going to start again. This what we talked about on the show. Months ago. She listen, I understand. We want to slow it down enough so that we can quote Bend the curve so that we don't overwhelm the hospitals. We've got to make sure that we have time for that. We've got to increase our testing. Great. We've done all that. Well, well, well, You need to do it again. Then. Then what? And then you started all over again, And in the meantime, more business or closing, more people have lost their jobs. The economy is in a shambles. There's more mental health issues. No way. I've got a ton of stories about the mental physical health of the unintended consequences of the lock down for Corona virus, But no, no. I mean, if we were to lock down really hard, I know he'd even suggested people will be frustrated by it. But if we were to lock down hard for a month or six weeks A month or six waits. We could get the case count down. So are testing in our contract. Tracing was actually enough to control it the way it's happening in the Northeast. Right now, they had a rocky start, but they're doing a pretty good job right now know the reason that it's slowed down in the Northeast is everybody already got sick and died. I mean, let's be on. We're talking about 567 times higher death rate per capita than anywhere else in the United States. In New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, But now we're being told it's because they did it the right way. Are you kidding? No, this is nonsense. Nonsense, And yet they keep just pumping out the nonsense. At least we have a couple of honest people. Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the CDC. You saw this right? He admitted that hospitals get reimbursed Mohr from the government. When one of their patients who dies Is listed as a covert 19 patient. So, yes, there's an incentive to say this person died from Cove in 19 even if they didn't even if that wasn't the main reason for death. I mean, I'm sure most people don't do it. But there is an incentive. One of the people that was listed. As dead from Cove in 19 had a gunshot to the head. I can't make this stuff up. There was the one in Orlando. Remember, the doctor came out and admitted that the guy was in a motorcycle accident. Like I mean, really messed up from the motorcycle accident. That's what killed him. But he also had Cove in 19. And who are we to say that Cove in 19 didn't cause them to have accidents. I can't make this stuff up. That's what they're saying. So we don't even know how honest these numbers are that that's what's getting so frustrating. I can't trust my media. I can't even trust my hospitals. I can't trust some of these doctors because they want to be on the cover of InStyle magazine and threw out the first pitch at the Nationals game instead of actually doing their job. I don't know who I can trust. And so I've got to read as much as I can and try and sift through and try and see if I can find some kind of nuggets of truth in there. And then we've got these power hungry mayors and governors. You see, the L. A mayor is ordering the department of water and power to shut off. Lights and water two houses that hose host big parties. No. I thought maybe you need to pass a law before he could do something like that, and I I don't understand how that could possibly be legal. I mean, wouldn't when there there are certain cities that you can't shut off somebody's power, even if they don't pay the bill. I mean, you've got to go there first to make sure that they don't really need the power, You know. I mean, they might have a ventilator or something. You turn that off, They die. But if they're having a party, you just go ahead and turn it off. So are we. Passing laws were just making decrees.
