That's scary, especially when it's something as simple as a sore throat, and especially right now to you and you know, and it's a good thing.

Election Day 2020: Rick Davis
"Joining us live is Bloomberg's Rick Davis, partner at Stone Court Capital has run a good number of campaigns, including John McCain's 2008 Rick Again. Thank you so much for joining us. My pleasure. Yeah, The Democrats seem focused on Pennsylvania Joe Biden yesterday back again today, Camilla Harris today saying it be decided they're Biden claims it's his first home. Polling has been good. But now the NBC Marist poll today shows it tightening. Where does this stand? Well, it's on the horse race side. You can't tell, but it's been a very stable election. Even in Pennsylvania, Biden held the lead anywhere from 4 to 10 points, depending on which poll and at what point in this campaign. But that's the nature of this campaign is so unusual is how little has really changed lately. I mean, when you were tracking polls and you're only you know, seeing Ah pointer to tightening or loosening in the course of an election. It shows you a very stable electric. In other words, people have made up their minds and we've seen in the last month. People are voting in record numbers during these early votes, And so my guess is Pennsylvania. I would say. Friends toward Biden because he's never been behind in any public or private survey I've seen, but you know, we're see what happens on Election Day. Yeah, Also Florida I mean, for the most part of Florida Early on, and who knows early eyes? It goes for for Biden. They're saying that it's over. Yeah. If Florida goes for Biden, there's really no way for Donald Trump. To find a path to victory mean Biden start with some of the Trump states that he won before pretty much in Hiss. Calm. Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin. These are all states that Biden is right now tracking an almost 10 in some cases, 12 points. So you take those states away from Donald Trump. And he can't afford to lose those Bay States and the biggest one that he Has in play 29 electoral votes is Florida now have the two things have the pollsters learned anything since 2016 number one and have the Democrats learned anything since 2016 I'll take the last one. First. What the Democrats learned is that they needed to pick their spots as to where they need to win in orderto get the necessary electoral votes and And Hillary Clinton's campaign spread themselves all over states that were completely unnecessary. They had people in Arizona and other places the week before the election thinking we're going to turn Red States blue. What? What Joe Biden has shown is the discipline to park himself. As you said earlier in Pennsylvania, every surrogate he has in the country was in there today. And he's planted a flag. If I win Pennsylvania, I win the presidency and I'm fighting here. And he has Ah, just in just in the past hour in campaigning, talking to young talking to students, saying that they that they are the key. I mean, the Democrats have needed, you know, asking that question to motivate young voters. Michelle Obama's been beating this drum now since Since 2016 the young have to be showing up. Are we seeing that they will Yeah, There are record turnouts bank on Which state you're talking about in Pennsylvania is one of them where under 25 8. Voters are starting to show up in much bigger numbers than they did in 2016. Now whether or not that follows on Election day. These are all the early voters that we can track. But if that follows up on Election Day, the young voters could actually make a big impact on the state like Pennsylvania. OK, let's and and the presidency, of course, is what everybody focuses on the most for very good reason. But But let's let's look at the Senate here. I mean, if you're a Democrat, and you're looking at this, you're saying, Wow, we have a really good shot that this could flip. Yeah, His Senate is ah, Titan. There's no question about that. Republicans have probably five or six states where they have likely swings to the Democratic side, potentially. And they only have one pickup in in in. Ah, Alabama. What is interesting? State toe Watch is Georgia. Not only do you have a Senate race up for grabs, But you have a special election for a senator to Senate seats up in Georgia this year. And Georgia has a funky law where you have to get over 50% of the vote, or you go to a runoff. And at this point, neither one of the incumbent Republicans there look like they're going to be able to get to 50%. So you could have the control. The Senate decided months later in a special election on top of the special elections you already have? Yeah, possibly in in January. Now now vote counting. Of course, you know, we hoped to see something tomorrow probably won't. But the president has said that he may claim victory on on election night anyway, both sides of lawyered up. This could be a mess as well. I don't want to be negative, Bob, but but this could be a mess. Well, The good news is states run their elections and so unless they decide to defer to the president states, which would be extraordinary, right? No, no state Tends to do that voluntarily, then they're going to count at their own pace. In fact, we've never had an election where the actual elections certifications. We're on election night. They always take days later. In order to facilitate all the ballot collection and count all the ballots, And then the state certifies. There's there. It just simply doesn't happen on election night in any election we've ever had. And so I think that most of the states if their discipline and they follow their own rules, they'll pay no attention to the president's protestations. He did this in 2018 during the Florida governor's race where he said, Oh, you know, all the votes were counted, and we ought to just move on. We're Yeah, we're going to have to leave it there. Thank you so much and will watch for you and David and Jeannie. With our special election coverage

"The utility PG and E shut down parts of its system to prevent its own power lines from sparking fires during strong winds and dry weather that has left hundreds of thousands of people there waiting for the lights to come back on after two days in the dark. These sorts of widespread power shut offs have become a way of life for many Californians and ask Beedies Lily Jamali reports. Residents aren't happy in the tiny community of Concow, about three hours north east of San Francisco. Jesse Olson and her family have lived through PG and E power shut offs. Not once but twice in the last week. It's not easy. It's like they're adjusted recovering from one power outage, and then you're preparing for the next one. A portable generator has helped them stay warm. Keep phone's charged and for the kids at least try to do school online. We also have. We also have a farm with livestock, So we have to keep the antibiotics refrigerated. The Olsens survived California's deadliest and most destructive fire 2018 campfire. It burned down their home. It was sparked by old poorly maintained equipment belonging to Pee Jeannie Online's that stayed active during peak fire conditions. And now we're all living in an RV. Olson adopted her boys out of foster care. They'd been homeless before that. I never wanted them to have tto deal with homelessness ever again.

You know, my mom's got electricity and Senate dress I was able to put My frozen stuff in her freezer so they don't go bad. It's been tough. And while some p Jeannie Fire survivors feel relief that the company is proactively cutting power, McBride is frustrated at the utility for neglecting its lines for years. My feeling is why didn't you do your job in the first place? Why are we having to go through this? Now? P. Jeannie has promised to make long term fixes to its lines. So power outages like these aren't a permanent way of life for NPR news. I'm Lily Jamali in San Francisco.

The Parents Are Not Alright
"I'm in the virtual studio today with producer Ginny Moon Hey Jeannie I'm waving to you all the way from Harlem, Hey Maria, I'm in Queens. So Jeannie were talking about our favorite topic today parenting, right? Yeah and parenting in twenty twenty is a whole new level parenting. You know what I have adult children now. So honestly, I am so thankful that I do not have to be raising little kids during this time I just can't imagine. So what have you been doing because how old is your little boy now Medina's turning three it's been an adventure I don't know how else to put it. But in this adventure, you're not really going anywhere, right? No, it's an adventure within the four walls of our apartment. So what's it been like like? How do you even manage it I don't some days and some days I do. I had to cut back to part time. So when everything shut down I, just tried to manage the best I could. But it became too much I. was burnt out I was trying to work at night I was trying to work in his nap times and also like switching gears from mom to try and. Write an email or work I can't multitask again if I have a toddler running around in the background running my life like he's the boss, I can hear my in the background saying Mommy's. But yeah, you just Kinda deal with it. Yeah. I have to say in the beginning the only way I made it through, was my coffee in the morning and passing the torch to the wine that I would have to the day. I know you're tired genie as a parent but the thing is, is that when people are tired, they're like, oh, my God the last thing I want to do is go to work but for you, you're like I'm tired I really WanNa go to work yeah. Because I just WANNA. Work without distractions like how many times a day do I have seen running in here and being like me and like L. And he wants to play and like. Hangman. And it's nice. I had review. On some level, but I really just want to focus for an eight. Hour Day Without a distraction and it's because it's really hard to switch gears feel like women are good at multitasking. But this is not one of those scenarios I wanNA parent when I need to parent and I wanna work when I need to work I can't do both at the same time. So. This whole thing about the schools being closed down like New York City like they try to never close the schools down, right? Yeah. So the fact that they did shut down and they shut down all around the country poses a really big challenge because. Not, everybody can set up for remote learning I mean not everybody has Internet. Some kids only get their meals if they're going to school so. It really has been a challenge on a lot of different levels. So you decided that you like all parents you're like, okay I need to talk to other parents and commiserate and think and see how other people are doing it. So you didn't gather a group of parents I guess virtually right? Yeah I did because there's been a slew of articles about the mental load that everybody is dealing with as parents because you're not meant to do both things at once like you can't parent and work full-time that's why childcare exists and none of this was meant to be a long term solution. But I do want to say before we start that even though we have all been affected by the pandemic, all of us participating in today's roundtable have been fortunate enough to still be working in some format. So we're all healthy and we're all grateful for that but we're barely hanging on by threat. So here we go. I want to welcome from Dallas Texas we have. dinty Cabanas. Hi. How are you? Thank you for having me. So glad you're here I have Joe Marvin Tura from Richmond California. For having me and I have to Haida Alencastro from Orlando Florida. Hey thank you. Teeny. Thanks for having me and just the disclaimer everyone knows to hide it and I have actually known each other for like twenty years. So no surprises there little bit. All right. So I just want to quickly go around the virtual room. And tell me about your kids what you do. This is our Sia I am in Dallas. As you said, I have two little girls wind will be ten in three weeks. The other one will be four in two weeks. And I for fulltime digital marketing manager for. Mary. Kay Corporate here in Dallas Great Jomar. Hi I'm Joanna and I'm in Richmond. That's you know the bay area and my little one is turning three months and I teach elementary school. So juggling the new definition of a teacher and first time parent has been very, very interesting adventure. Into Haida. I have two kids. My son is ten years old and my daughter is about to be eight and a few weeks and I am a systems engineer for Lockheed. Martin but I work from home. So I've been A. Since two thousand and five. Okay. So we're going to start from the beginning. I think I mean I don't know about the rest of you but I think we all were kind of like Oh. This is going to be a few weeks we can do this. No big deal, but walk me through personally what? Each of you guys had to go through and like what kind of plan you came up with to get by for the end of the school year. Well for us like all of you we've had to adjust we did not work from home originally We were released for spring break and never came back. We were told we were going to stay. And do you learning and so it was a shock I'm not gonNA live my husband and I freaked out a little bit. But then we had to pivot really quickly. Right what are we going to do? Do we have the right equipment to we have the right setup at the House Both of our kids are in the same school. So that was one good thing because it was need to everybody. So the school they know what they were doing. We know what we're doing the girls were like what's going on? So the ambiguity of it all was really challenging for all of us. But we just started getting a routine down our dining room became our command center. So I would say the first two weeks were horrible I'm not GonNa lie but I think we've all pivoted. Can and so I was pivoting at home I was pivoting at work. And even with myself like how am I going to take time for myself and you know lose it But I'm not allowed I'm sure I'm not a lot. Of. This

And so with that in mind, I wanNA, bring Tony Anita Hill up to the Mike Tony on double duty this week. We have another thing for you later. What's on, but this one?

I've been working from home, so it's not at all free time, but still. I See Oh Yeah. Oh that's the worst feeling as a person who struggles with OCD not being unpacked. I, have to tell you Stephanie. I think I was in one house for twelve years before I unpacked the last box. There's always a one box. That just has stuff that you probably never should have brought with you from the last place. Just. Couldn't you just couldn't think it and say goodbye, and so you still have it? And just sits around in a box for Twelve Years Until the cats pee in that box. That's usually that's usually what motivates we. We have a similar problem in this household and in some ways. It's worse because we bought this house. I'm going to say eight or nine years ago. and. We were living in an apartment before then and literally three weeks before we were supposed to leave the apartment and moved into. This house a pipe behind. Washing machine in our apartment burst, the whole place flooded dip fire department had to come and because of the water remediation.

It's not touched that professional packers put it in. No movers, the movers were allowed into put everything into boxes.

Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata
"We're here today to talk about our June twenty twenty. Book Club, pick, convenience store, woman by Sayaka Murata translated by Jeannie Taffy, Takamori. Yes, so there's a divisive opinion on this book and I'm like really excited to dive into it. A lot of people were questioning our decision to pick this book as a lighter More I guess not dark read. Okay, but the thing is like our book club. Pick before that was a warrior woman and I. Think were your was darker than convenience store. Women didn't think it was that dark to be having me neither. Get into a little, are we? Are we the Weirdos here for? Okay, so without further ado, let's get into our. Our discussion. We want you start off with the Book Jack. Description Keiko is normal at school and university. People find her odd and her family worries. She will never fit in to make them happy. Keiko takes a job at a newly opened convenience store where she finds peace and purpose in simple daily tasks. But in Keiko Circle just won't do for an unmarried woman to spend her time stacking shelves and Green Tea as the pressure to find a new job or worse, a husband increases. Keiko is forced to take desperate action so the story itself is a slice of life. story about a convenience store worker toll from first person perspective from the main character Keiko and. I guess we can start with just the style of the store because it's very straightforward. Right and that's some so I don't know if you have this information, but is this the style of Sayaka Murata, or is this because of the condition of Keiko are someone who is like atypical? I have not read any of meritas other works because they happened been translated, but from what I've gleaned from interviews like she does have a very deadpan style to her writing. It is very straightforward like you said and a lot of her previous novels because convenience store women, while it's the first novel to be translated in the states. It's also her tenth novel. and. Yeah like that was really surprising to me. But her other novels are they kind of the same same themes like it's about nonconformity in Japanese Society AH take on gender roles and sexuality, and just like Japanese, societal issues on celibacy and a sexuality and. There are two books that have actually like I'm really hoping that they get translated 'cause the premise is. It's so bonkers There's one book called dwindling world I don't know the Japanese title is, but it set in dystopia where all procreation is made artificially and sex between a heterosexual married couple is is considered to be pretty disgusting like they. Oh, yeah, it's. It's not really a taboo, but it's more of like. Is this like Why are you doing that? A better way to like make children like. Why would you go through sex so? That's like a really interesting premise to me and then the other one. which definitely sounds like my jam? It's called sausage in Soussan, and it roughly translate to translates to birth murder, and this is also a dystopia novels and they banned. It's a dystopia novel where? Where a person who gives birth to ten children they they get to lawfully murder another person down. Yeah, right? About a royal. The Battle Royale I want this book to be translated immediately. Into a movie! Speaking speaking of like adapting it to a movie I. Think Convenience Store. Woman would work really well as a Japanese DEALLM. Or even just like a limited series like one of the Japanese. Soap operas or TV, shows are kind of like the BBC were they're pretty like they're short and sweet. Yeah, yeah, well well. The thing is like a convenience store. Women is such a short novel. It's only like. Because of the size of the hardcover book it's IT'S A lot smaller and very very cute. But in the smart in the smaller version, it's like around. Two hundred pages were like two hundred and fifty pages a in like a normal Let letter size paperback. It's like a hundred and fifty pages, so it's more of a novella than an actual novel. But this book was really really popular.

"P. Jeannie a real estate expert are you doing this morning JP Hey good morning guys I'm doing great what they are today Thursday yes there really you don't know what day it is Amanda quarantine look do you're not alone I was I went to visit my mom's birthday was yesterday I went up to visit and I walked in the front door my dad said daisy you what the answer to this is the last day so yeah twenty twenty I developed here will never forget that's absolutely right you may not know the day but you definitely know the error so tell me a real estate expert put on that hat I'm I'm seeing reports this morning that home prices are actually going up during the pandemic what what's up with that you know it's inventory there's no there's no holds up there for sale it's a different price ranges so builders of course has slug down the slow down the key construction and they are they were little I have said this is you would imagine homeowners that you know returning on appeals because over forty per homes on the market the spring is always where the inventory starts flourishing starts starts growing you know hello it didn't happen so are now we've got this this case fever cabin fever for people to pick it up we've got people that there are are are fearing another second coronavirus quarantine in the fall whether it happened or not people people are fearful that so they would hurry up and get involved you got crazy low interest rates if they are just a general population that needs a home guess what got the perfect storm for home prices increases because people are getting in multiple visits in in offers it in fifty percent of the homes across nine states we've seen many wars it's crazy yeah well the last time you and I talked you know the nature of buying a home is so different I mean it used to be kind of thing where you jump in the car with your agent you went and visited you know eight or ten or however many houses trying to get a look at the lay out near the decorum how's the landscaping now because your neighbors and all that stuff now it's almost all virtual now you're you're taking a chance on a house that you're seen pictures of it may be a little video inside well that looks good so what do you think yeah dude rocked by it said you know what will make it ours doesn't matter other than the current apartment condo or or time you know right yes so so I mean do you think that has much impact I mean are people more or less likely to buy based on pictures rather than actually being in the physical plant I think it's a let's let's be real if you're gonna buy a home the very small percentage of people are going to go into by Saddam's enough to call it but we are seeing a good percentage of that I would say about ten percent of the homes that were fine really about the example to a lot more so that's not really a pretty much as before but during the quarantine during a lockdown you have a picture of the homes were silent scenes where I can't imagine signing my name to a loan for two hundred two hundred fifty three thousand dollars on a place I can set foot in yet yeah I mean if that is your best option and you can look at the photos that you win that you even have to pay for it let's let's face it if you're if you're buying a home started seeing you likely have to bit give her so yeah I mean you're you're buying it and then if you don't you have a look at it you gotta realize that at the current situation that I've had yeah I I guess I understand is there any regional difference in that I mean that what's going on in Texas is going on in California is going on and York now you got it you know that's that's always real C. right you look at New York because those guys New York you see an exodus of of of residents there so they're they're getting flooded with inventory unfortunately nobody wants violence yeah so it's too early to ask because our prices up to decline in New York it will because of the inventory surplus is commercial and residential real estate right people live in a country in the statement live into a California believe it out of the question of the Florida the two of Texas third so just bear with us state or city so that's that but the taxes of course were absorbing the brunt of east coast west coast it west all around here in in situations pretty dire cities like Austin becoming the next Silicon Valley the bricks the couple the next day yeah yeah Texas Dallas even the the the help for everybody else you know financial with hospitality in the manufacturing so it is about this I guess boil it down if it continues to be a seller's market yeah it's gonna be like this for the rest of the summer unfortunately just because of inventory so low most places we only have about two months worth of inventory and healthy market a balanced buyer seller market requires almost six months worth of inventory wow just to give an idea in the crash of two thousand seven we have three years worth of inventory so you know the crash is not anywhere happening you know the thing that we were concerned with was job losses what's gonna happen to these people that can afford to make mortgage payments at the big board was for parents remember yep people are looking that up on wikipedia in Oxford dictionary what is for parents what does that mean and it's not forgiveness first of

Jeannie after he complained about a up a piece of a piece of equipment called a re closer and this is something that will automatically restart a power line after it turns off any was saying that the the device allows PGD to avoid sending people out to do this if they would do it automatically but that's pretty common they said these temporary faults which are common re closers can also be risky because they actually shoot bursts of electricity they could start a fire if a broken line is in contact with the tree or a butcher of some sort of Dr education not taught her networks for twenty years at the company he says he and his colleagues complained to management about the re closers repeatedly since the company began installing them in twenty seventeen remember this is just months before P. genies power lines sparked a series of fires up there in napa that's that's the area where he worked so he says the utility was on safely installing these re closers in higher risk fire areas but that the company didn't take the warnings seriously so that needless to say P. genies up to its neck in other legal problems right now so they asked the judge to deny the motion saying that he should just let is ongoing union reprint the grievance he filed after termination sort of run its course they're busy of course with the bankruptcy in the billions of dollars that they settled for a joystick just last week as a matter of fact but here's the thing if in fact this is a problem and if they had somebody in their own company telling them that this was going to be a problem and the timing of this works out as well because like you said it was months before the fire in the wine country that roared through and killed a bunch of people and damaged billions of dollars worth of property this is the guy they want to be quiet this is the guy they want to shot a how much of a whistle blower did he need to be I am of the belief that PGA any new its lines were unsafe but just didn't want to pay the money to update their equipment they were just kind of rolling the dice with the the lives of so many people that live around those faulty power lines you know I don't think this guy was this genius I had this aha moment is like the re closers or whatever the hell the call right you know what I mean I think that as a company it's filled with engineers that the writing is on the wall they they they didn't update their equipment for decades and they knew that they they should but they just did it because they want to pay the money up front the the I think the problem that you're going to see is that these re closers this specific type of equipment was implicated in not just that fire in wine country the the nuns fire complex but also the which fire the huge one down in San Diego twelve years ago the a huge fire in Australia from ten years ago that was also killed a hundred and twenty people I think so these types of you know this pattern is going to be a problem because P. Jeannie can for people against P. Jeannie including this top Hearns guy can say this was a problem before we knew it was a problem going into this and we still use that as the equipment and didn't do anything to change it they have since figured out a way to disable the re closers when there is a high fire risk we talk about the public safety power shut offs going into this but what they said is the P. genies doing a limited trial of turning off the re closer's disabling them during those high wind high risk wind times they're saying hopefully that that is one of the reasons why they've been able to prevent massive wildfires this year this season I guess all right street lamp inequity is what is the latest concernant LA city hall not typhus not typhoons not homeless not the plague not traffic not traffic not the five through Norwalk no no it's a it's all about street lamps who's got who doesn't and so this is this is right up there was shade isn't it yeah that that's exactly what I thought of we now have lighting privilege in this city and you might not even know it but you're a you are a recipient of light privilege not just white privilege but white privilege as well Gary channel were alive today in our news a bruise we are in Downey this is Jay's restaurant and brewhouse a five page article in the LA times about three planned out making you feel bad about your street lamps you can your eyes on the radio nobody can see you do that Joe Kwan has the latest a school bus in a van impression lake Elsinore hurting at least eight people cal fire riverside says eight people were taken to the hospital this morning including two with serious injuries military specialists in New Zealand every coverage six more bodies after deadly volcanic eruption.
