"And and of course, I think always the first thing you gotta do is Say what the heck is a reverse mortgage? And what the heck is it? Not like you don't give away your equity. You don't give up your house to the bank or anything like that. Which you always hear about somebody just touching that always first. Well, you always hear about that, because when the reverse mortgage started in the eighties under President Reagan, it was a terrible Thing because the bank or the lending company lending institution went on title with you, which meant they were your partners. They actually went on the deed, so that only lasted a very short period of time. It was so bad people today still remember it, but that's been gone for so long. A reverse mortgage Is exactly what your regular mortgages on Lee, You don't have to make a payment, so we reverse parts. The payment the end right the end instead of during alone. So when you have your regular mortgage, the bank is not on your title. They just have a lien against the property. And that's exactly what a reverse mortgages Yeah, they don't have any ownership or anything like that. So they just You know if you got to go if you want to go sell the house, you get a payoff that lean. That's right. No difference. Obviously, one One difference is that since you'd pay in interest, the interest is screwing right, so and that alone will be bigger than started with. Absolutely it's a negatively advertised along just opposite. That's why it's called a reverse of the regular long when you're making your mortgage payment. You're paying principal and interest which pays it down when you're not making a payment. That's accruing so at the end is the cells If you sell your house if you live it to your heirs, whatever. At the end, the reverse gets paid off out of escrow. And so the reason why so you know, I always all financial tools are tools and, you know, there's different tools in the tool, chest and Yeah, You can use a wrench or sought to take off a bolt and usually use the wrench. But if it's rusted shut, I might have to use the soft. So why do people use the tool of the reverse mortgage? What's the big galore? What's what's the big reason? To, you know, tap that equity and get that money out. I mean, what are the benefits of people get from it the biggest his tax free. I have so many clients as you well know that have portfolios and in an uncertain time like we're in They don't want to sell at a loss. They don't want to have to pay a tax when they when they do sell So, with the reverse mortgage, they can tap the equity in their property. And there's no tax consequences because it's it's just their equity. Anytime you borrow money, there's never been a time in history, where they've taxed loan proceeds so that money is then by definition. Tax free, which is great. So you know if you're sitting on a couple 100,000 of equity, obviously it's one way t get that the other big bay. One, of course, is right. I think number one. Almost a Sze Yu don't have a payment anymore. You have a payment and in a lot of cases Some seniors. And of course this is for you Have to be 62 are older today. So you can't be I'd be 30 and getting sorry, guys. No, I run into all all situations. I've been doing this for 15 years and I've practically I know I've hit every situation some people. The home is free and clear. No, no mortgage, no lean on it, so they have access to a lot of equity. Some people have it mortgaged to the hilt where and their payments air 2,506,500 And at this point in life, they're retiring. There can't make that payment anymore. They don't want to move. This. Has there been their home for 40 years? Whatever that is, and they don't want to move, so they want to stay there, so eliminating that mortgage payment is huge for them. The only thing you're responsible for with a reverse mortgage is thie property tax and the homeowner's insurance. And, of course, you have to keep the house in decent repair. That's the only way that with a regular mortgage you can they can foreclose on you. You Mr four payments. You're in foreclosure. That cannot happen with a reverse on ly. If you miss a lot of your Property tax. It's not like you're late on one, and they're gonna come and foreclose goes for in a couple of years before they even tried to get hold of you to find it say the payments is you know, 24 2000 month, even if it's just only 2000. That's 24,000 year. Well, for most people, a lot of their money's in for one K's IRAs. That's all taxable. So you might need to be taken out 30,000 or more just to pay that payment. And that means you'll be paying that tax increase in your tax brackets you might be causing your Medicare premiums go up. All sorts of other negative stuff. And of course, you're selling off those assets. If you take it out of the house? No, no, no. No cost to you Other than the interest in, you know that comes off of the end where your errors have to pay it. Not you. Right And they still now we get a step up in base is so that's you know that That one's a big one? Yeah, that's I didn't want for Ah, lady. She bought a home in Palo Alto in 1968 paid $38,000. So her husband passed and she needed money. She they were living on Social Security. So she lost one of them. I think she kept it. Yeah, you get to keep the bigger of the two cheques and she couldn't She couldn't live. So she went to a financial adviser, and he said, You need to look into a reverse mortgage where she was way against it because she had heard so many terrible things. Anyway, he said. If you sell your house now You paid 38,000. You have not put five cents into improvements. It was a beautiful home, but it was 1968. It was historical item base. Absolutely. So that appraised for 4.8 million. So he goes. Okay. You're going to pay capital gains. That Delta between the 38 1.5. Yeah, probably at least a 1.5 1,000,000 in taxes. Are that wouldn't you rather just give that to your daughter? You know what wouldn't you want to pass that Because then when you pass, then you get to step up. So that's what she did. She did. There is verse mortgage to get the money out to live on. And then she's gonna pass the home to her daughter who gets to step up and they avoid all that tax saves them about 1.5 $1,000,000 in tax is absolutely so. Let's see what's the interest rate on that loan? Nothing right, because if it saved you want hope cares what the interest rate was that you know, because it's so there's no way Syrian offset that that tax bill and the other amazing part too. It's you know, you also get is Prop 13 tax base. And so not only does that step up in base is go. You don't pay tax on that house. If you're no child decides to live in it are just keep the house they get keep your old old prop 13 tax basis. And if you're talking from the sixties, my gosh, that's huge. Yeah, I'm in the very position. I inherited the house. From my parents and my property taxes are like, 2600 year and across the street there 18,000 on..

You Dont Exist. But You Actually Do

"In this episode, we're going to take a simple useful down to earth stroll through one of the most confounding liberating concepts in Buddhism. On. The one hand. Buddhists. Tell us the self is an illusion. You don't exist. On the other hand they tell us well, actually on some level you do, of course exist. So which is it? The answer this frustrating the answer is both. But this concept which is called not self selflessness Igla snus or emptiness. This concept does not have to be some hopelessly esoteric riddle. It is actually a game changer that we can all apply in our own lives. Here to tell us how to do that. Guy, Armstrong, who has been a meditation teacher in insight tradition for decades, he's written a book called emptiness. He is the husband of Sally Armstrong who appeared on the show just a few weeks ago. I. Actually conducted the interviews back to back last fall. But. Even though this was recorded before the record events twenty, twenty, the concepts here in our I, assure you. Perennially us. So here we go with Armstrong. Well, nice to see you again, thanks for coming on Nice to see you Dan. So the latest die back into your. biography, just a little bit. What was it about back in the seventies about meditation? No. What was it about your life that the practice of meditation and the? Teachings of the Buddha, such a big deal for you that you actually. You. Had Gone to a fancy college if I recall rice in Houston and you've worked in Silicon Valley and you were teaching at a alternative school in Palo. Alto. You basically put all that to the side and became, as you said, a Dermot Bum. Why? Well, it was two things I'd had a long standing interest in Buddhism. Really from my college days, it just spoke to me philosophically in a way that no other system ever had. There was a depth of precision and accuracy the really resonated with me, and the second thing was I was not very happy in my life at that time, I came out of the sixties and my life was really unsettled and I I did a little too much of all the things that people did too much of the sixties. Victor. and. So I was still trying to put my life back together and I never felt invested in the worldly things that I was engaged in. So this Dharma practice came along and I remember sitting on my first retreat. And I reached into a level of stillness of mind that I had never felt before. and. I think what struck me at that time? Was the basic. You could call it in this. You could call it space that meditation. In my mind I felt anything is possible in this place. So looking back now on that experience, what I tapped into was the basic emptiness or you know more congenial word is openness. Of Our mind, our basic situation I saw anything was possible. And I. I must admit I was really drawn by the concept of enlightenment. But there could be transformative moments of insight that would change your life forever you know in a positive way. said two things in there. I WANNA follow up on. We say anything is possible. Do you mean you could play for the NBA? You could learn how to fly. What do you mean when you say I, don't suspect you do to what do you mean exactly when you say anything is possible in that space by meant that the mind could be. Shaped or formed in any direction one wanted I just saw this vast potential of the space in the mind that was revealed through that stillness. And I knew that any degree of suffering that had come into my life didn't need to be there.

Palo Alto Unified Middle, High Schoolers to Get Later School Start Times

"Schools and high schools in California on a path to later start times. You may remember that Bill passed last year before all this stuff started. KCBS Keith Man Cockney reports for one school district on the peninsula. The pandemic is pushing up the timeline for the time change when the false school term starts, middle and high school students in the Palo Alto Unified School District will be starting their school days. No. Earlier. 9 a.m. It's a school board decision that reflects widespread concern that the early start for schools is cutting into students much needed sleep time. Still in any other year, this change probably would have been a harder sell. But with virtual learning said to return. There's a little more flexibility in the schedule, says District Superintendent John Austin was so many things thrown at us that we can't control start times are completely within our control. So we thought if there's ever a time to test assumptions and give something to try, this is this is the year so with a lot of unknowns and a lot to be learned, he says administrators We'll be taking notes in the Silicon Valley Bureau Keith Man, Cockney KCBS coming up

Just doing couple of deals, I'm then longside got you know the dynamics of the industry? was you know no looking back and I got heavily involved. On really started focusing on on the industry, and really for three three main reasons one is. You know, it is the largest industry in our economy. It's eighteen percent of our economy. It's the only industry that directly impacts every human being in our country. I'm probably most him personally an industry that despite his side. Is Social Impact. Is!

Africa's military crews had him on twice actually, and he mentioned uniform to, and we kinda wanted to to to the proverbial double. Click into this, so we're GONNA. Get into all that. And your career so I how did you get started in technology? So I had a strange path in technology I originally had a full scholarship for genetic engineering to a private college, and I got there and I realized the I really hated spending thirteen hours in the lab, doing the same thing over and over and over again, but I really enjoyed the knowledge, so I started with a foreign languages in elementary school, and I was aware that the military particularly the air force had A. A strong program of linguists, so not knowing what else I wanted to do I joined the Air Force or Mandarin Chinese and I kind of figured out you know figure out what I wanted to do later, but I was lucky enough that I was working still with the government when the government started getting more into the computer space, and as someone who's also computer. Geek I've again volunteered thinking. Hey, the sounds fun and here I am twenty years later in its a career now. So it all worked out well, linguistics is really funny feeling. We're kind of talking about this before. Because seems like everybody who goes into air force. Linguistics has some sort of interesting career path. Is it something about like? Is it all people who like puzzles? Is it lake? cryptography like what what's the kind of common thread? What makes what makes linguists? So interesting, because it seems like you all are I think a lot of it honestly is our enjoyment of puzzles whether you're learning a language that you're speaking or whether you're learning a language, the programming language, or whether you doing threat analysis. You're always putting kind of picture together. They're certain places. Certain pieces can go, and some are interchangeable, but you have to be able to take that step back. Actually figure it out and a lot of us, especially a Lotta sustain. Sustain their career field that tends to be one of our favorite things to do like as a team one of the things we do a lot offsite. Are The puzzle rooms 'cause? We're basically professional puzzle breakers, and we have a ton of fun with those EC tend to find that a lot in community. It is one of those things like as a kid.

Burnley these numbers were phenomenal.

Thanks for having the OH great. Okay so it is hard to forecast and where one of the most bizarre times in our lives. Here's what I want to know. How many people do you think I didn't know about gaming or forgotten about gaming who have come back to it with their families and like stick with it no matter what well? It's a great question. It's obviously hard to measure but we think in addition to our Colorado and dishes are existing casual audience. There were a number of people who were familiar with interactive entertainment from their past but weren't currently enjoying. It did come sample it and sort out things that really changed. This is incredible in came back to stay and I think we've attracted new audiences as well. According to activate a leading media consultancy interesting gaming gaming activities up something like forty percents As a result of this pandemic about forty percent that we've obviously we've obviously done even better than that of you seem with our numbers but more interesting activates research says that post and American and this too shall pass is tragic moment shall pass. Of course they expect a gaming will continue to be a fourteen percent across the board across all demographics versus pre pandemic usage. That's very encouraging select. Let's dig down. That would this be because the graphics chips everything is much better. The storylines much better than people realize or. Is this just something that people discovered was a in particular who have kids or baby boomers looking for something to do with their kids have discovered a joy of something that really used to be very flat? When I was doing with my kids. Well I think I think it's all of the above. The stories are better. The characters are better. The graphics are better the game place better but most importantly there's this notion that you can connect with friends all around the world. Because you're on a headset. You're talking while you're playing. You're playing together as a team are playing against each other. You can create new friends. You can create new communities so as opposed to linear entertainment where you are sitting back in absorbing we've interactive entertainment. You're not just involved. You're also socializing and at a time like this particularly. We all WanNa socialize right now. There was a kind of weird disconnect on the call you have the pipeline the strongest ever committed titles ninety three ninety seventy three. That's right I was going to be more specific. But you're right to do that. It makes the story more effective but you also there can be valley. You never ever ever promised that something was going to ship until you loved it so you can't really nail things down. Maybe the schedules light. That is obviously not matter because of grand theft auto because the other games that are doing so well so what I'm trying to do is for the longer term viewers who are watching this with things like an NFL new product coming maybe even as good as blitz golf. You have in video reporting tonight. You Have Ray Tracing. Should we just think about the next six months to that being a good way to assess this thing? I'd probably put a little bit differently. Which is we're in this great position as a company were even if we have a light release schedule and to clear. It's not our goal. Everett apple light schedule but we do have one expected and twenty one. We still have a great catalog. We still have all these live games. We still expect to generate two point. Five to two point six five million billion in Billion in net bookings and to generate three hundred fifty million dollars or more in unrestricted operating cash flow. And that's an a very light year and imagine what what we can deliver. As we bring this pipelines market in the next few years we've already said we expect to see sequential growth in fiscal twenty two. So we're really excited. And this company has shown that it can be profitable and it can survive. And thrive even with the vagaries of a release scheduled. It is as he said. Driven by our quality. We just don't ship anything until we think it's as good as possibly be now. Usually with twenty seconds left by Jim a question. Well this is the old days jam question about what you're doing help community. I'm not going to do it right now. On the centerpiece. You're giving and I thought how you give. I want others to listen to other CEOS. You didn't just write a check. You gave a percentage which is a wild thing to do because if goes something that hits for seven hundred dollars you're giving a percentage and I want people know how you chose to do that rather than say and we gave a million to cova chairs. Well let me talk about our team and let me give you a palpable description of our culture. This came up from the label of when remember we? We share profits with our label colleagues and the label. Our label said to us. We want to donate five percent of our digital sales on selected hypocrites. He's our biggest products in April and may unlimited uncapped a charity. That's already more than ten million dollars. That comes partially out of the pockets of our colleagues. They brought this to us. And then we said yes. We think this is a great idea. We endorse this week. The corporations should do this but but I think the key point is this came from the hearts and minds and pockets of all of our colleagues over five thousand colleagues all around the world. That's I think a testament to the culture of this company and we're thrilled to be able to support phenomenal organizations including Covenant House for Taking Care of people who are in need in this in this terrible crisis it is. I don't think the depths of our more I think were validly seen in New York than other parts of the country. I hope they see what we see. I hope they don't miss thing. Nba No season maybe better.

Elon Musk Says Tesla Suing California County, Moving Headquarters Out Of State

"Week. California started phasing in the reopening of business including manufacturing so when that was announced Tesla CEO Elon. Musk sent out a memo to ten thousand employees at a factory in Alameda. County telling them to come into work the next day but just a few hours after that memo the local government in Alameda County said not so fast they were keeping tighter restrictions in place and Tesla's factory was not allowed to open yet in response. Tesla sued and Monday. Musk said they're opening their factory. Anyway here to tell us all about this lawsuit and what it could mean for businesses and governments across the US is our reporter. Tim Higgins Tim. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you all right. Let's start with Tesla. What is Tesla arguing in this suit? One of the things that you must angry about is that The California state government has to open up again including manufacturing and he's arguing that essentially that the local government has overstepped its authority by saying that. Tesla's factory cannot reopen that. The governor's office allowing for the state to reopen and that the US constitution allows for these sorts of things so really Arguments at the county. Government is overreaching and then he made a comparison to another facility. That is a nearby county. What's his argument? There Tesla has its has one assembly plant in the US but it has a number of facilities around California that help with the business. And there's a factory that is not that far from the assembly pant that has in a different county and the people there are not facing the same kind of shelter in place restrictions. Tassels reason the question of why are why isn't a uniform wise? They're pointing to figures. They say indicate that the rate of infection is very similar Why is one place stricter than the other so? Musk actually went a step further and reopened TUSLA yesterday. Right surprising a lot of people Monday. Tweeting out that He was opening the factory starting production that day in fact he said he's going to be on the assembly line and that if the police show up to arrest people he should be the one that's arrested so let's just back up a little bit. This sets tesla apart from many of its tag counterparts right. I mean facebook and others have announced that they're not bringing employees back to the office for months. Why is Elon? Musk and tesla wire. Wise Tusla's taking such a big stand here exactly facebook and Google and others. They can largely do their work at home on computers. Were Tesla makes cars. It needs an army of workers in the factory banging on metal to build these vehicles so they can sell them and without the Fremont Factory Online. It doesn't have anything to sell here in the US eventually. The cars that they made prior the shutdown. They're not gonNA have anything. So if Tesla is going to take advantage of any potential economic rebound that something might occur in the months to come as the country learns to live with the Corona virus. It needs cars. The shutdown came at a bad time for Tesla. It was just a ramping up. Production of its newest vehicle. The Model Y Compact Sport Utility vehicle is a vehicle that Elon. Musk has said could be. The company's top seller analysts expected to do very well. It's a good segment for this kind of vehicle and really there was a lot of enthusiasm among investors about the year ahead and so what the Krono virus has done is essentially. Put everything on ice and The problem for you on musk. Is that this. Factory has been sitting Essentially vacant for weeks. Now and he needs the lifeblood of the company to kick back on. I guess comparing to facebook isn't quite fair. I mean the better comparison might be to other. Automakers what are we seeing Michigan do for example and how our automakers they're responding. That's some of the frustration that musk has been. Venting is that Michigan announced last week and then that they were bringing manufacturing back online this week so Monday. As Yuan is sitting there unhappy that his factory is an open open. Places in Michigan could come back online and he knows his competitors have already announced. Gm for Chrysler others that they're kicking up production GM and Ford. They're a scheduled to start assembly vehicles again next Monday and here in California. That's that's not the case so elon. Musk has taken it another step further. He also has threatened to move production out of California altogether. He's saying maybe to Texas. What kind of impact could his departure have on? The state would smell something that can happen. Overnight it's not as simple as picking up his tools and going to Texas and starting to make cars and a new factory I. It's much more complicated. And it's something that probably would take years to do but the effect would be dramatic. Tessa wouldn't be the first car company to pull out of California Toyota. Its headquarters for the US. North America used to be based on your La and they pulled out over the course of several years starting in two thousand fourteen and they went to Texas because in emerged part it's cheaper to operate their California had just gotten to expensive the factory that Tesla owns and California used to be a factory that was jointly operated by General Motors and Toyota in when GM wind bankruptcy left to Toyota and Toyota. Didn't want to didn't want to be there anymore. I wanted to go to someplace. Cheaper the state of California has in recent generation or so struggled to keep a car manufacturing and the Fremont factory the fact that Tesla was able to buy in two thousand ten and resume making vehicles there in twenty twelve was seen by the the region him by Government officials is a huge win and is something very important for the economy states. Local leaders across the country prize car factories. These are things they want. It means jobs. It means economic investment. It means all the and things that go with with that so it's not just the car factory it's the suppliers and the ecosystem that creates and brings into the community so this kind of threat in some ways was almost going nuclear to say that he was going to pull out of of the state now a lot of people are saying or asking was was just because he lost his temper. And and that sort of thing. Well we'll see. He has said on twitter that he's not messing around and he's taking this very seriously. Some of this of course is also. He's in essentially negotiating in public. He's trying to push put pressure on on the local government to allow him to open up. Yeah I mean it's it's a very public lobbying effort if you can call it that I think the interesting thing is. We'VE SEE BUSINESSES. Do this all the time time right to get tax incentives or or other deals but in this case it's public health interests that are at stake. How HAVE OFFICIALS IN ALAMEDA? County responded to this very open threat And is the pressure that he's putting on them seeming to impact their decisions to reopen at all whether the mayor of Fremont put out a statement saying that she supports Tesla and the Mayor of Palo Alto or the company's headquarters is located. Put out a statement over the weekend about their support for the company. It's a tough position for some of these elected officials They want to see the company. Back Open. They want to see businesses back. Open him yet. Some are also weighing the health ramifications. Several people have died in the county from Kovic Nineteen and they have reported More than two thousand cases of Govan Nineteen and so the concern among county leaders is that they're not sure if there's going to be a spike as they start to re phase in business activity and they'd like to see it play out a little bit longer and be prepared and the idea of ten thousand people coming into a facility is concerning and so they have been working with the company to make sure that the safety protocols in place and the Tesla has Publicized some of these. Things are what they're working on. And that's where the standoff here is. It's not when we're unique to test so there are lots of places and companies around the country who are frustrated and want to get back to the way things were and we've seen state by state by state Different ways of handling this. But there's probably no higher profile company in the US The take this kind of stand to to sue the local authorities and to Defy a local shutdown order. Well we wouldn't expect anything else from Elon. Musk I guess. Our reporter Tim Higgins. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you

Tough Airports with Pilot to Pilot

"I'm GonNa Bring Justin. See here he comes. Hey there's my man has then. Are you actually looking up at four flight up with my computer? And I was looking up bested when you're talking about it because I know seen it before in my mind is not like I don't even know if I WANNA fly. They're like Oh yeah. You know it's funny. Some sometimes that stuff's really intimidating but the rules you have to follow making for example. If you're coming down through Elgin and Valparaiso there I think it looks. I mean obviously be having to talk to their tower Roy. Once you're talking to their tower than your you know everything's Kinda worked out for you with the floor capabilities. File Easier that's funny. I was going to ask you about that because you're flying into so many different types of sorts. That's pretty much what you guys do. All the time right. It's just file a far. Yeah we will most are flights Are we can't take off the far far up in the air but we like to keep it many times. It's awesome just because it does help the have. Atc talking to you. We're GONNA get a busy airports. I never even expected to be really busy. There's one in Minnesota really crazy student training area. And there's like six or one seventy two pattern at a time mixing via far in just the Afar general. It can be a lot safer going I- Afar when you have the opportunity to do so. Yeah I totally see that Aspen. Airport there any over. It's like that that you guys going to where your company says we're GonNa have to do extra work with you guys or you have to fly in their inexperienced captain. I or something like that. We do similar trading on ask than we have a whole like Aspen lesson where we have to to land at Aspen. Show that we can do that. Another one's called Ocean research is a private airport down in Florida. And it's a really skinny and kind of severi interesting airport which we have to get checked out in the simulator. I I think we have to do it. Every every couple of years just to get retrained because our wings actually hangover the hedges when we go into land so it's very interesting but it's a very popular destination. While can you say just briefly? What's so challenging about aspirin? I that's SORTA aspirins just very interesting place. I mean if you even just look up the approach tar and you can see the glide. Slope like seven degrees. Maybe maybe it will literally feeling like you're going straight down at catch it. The site pictures just so messed up and then you have like a mountain right here. Airports a little bit farther forward. You can't get the glide slope warning fear when you come here I. It's hard for me to really explain it unless you're going. There are other chart in front of me. But it's there's a lot going on at Aston you gotTa be under your pointed down so far that you're speaking to come even if you have the Steve Breaks out so it's a very interesting airport for sure. Yeah that's wild. I mean we flew in there all the time in one. Eighty Two's mountain checkouts in Eagle Aspen than through loveland. Pass out toward lead though and all that now one eighty two. It's not a huge big deal. It's totally different. When you've got a jet can handle up pretty well so it's not too big of a deal but it definitely interesting. We don't take it down to the purchase so that we have the the airport site at a certain fixed remember. Stop ahead now. But we have special charts going in there and then. There's some other mountain airports where we don't need to be checked out in but we have a special area in our. Aol were read up about it before released before we go so we know the challenges that airport could cost. That's interesting I think. The last accident I remember at Aspen was a challenger from that mistake and landed with a tail rent. That's yeah that's very commonly. I WANNA say they landed on the taxiway almost other grass remember astronaut now or another airport. Another airport was. They didn't know that the runway was just pay. They thought the runway was covered in snow so they saw a freshly paved runway but their mind. They thought that it was supposed to be snow-covered sir. Lynden to the right or to the left of the runway landed on grass. Wow that's so fascinating that you just said that because somebody else I think it was. Brian Shift pigmy the other day he was doing lecture for Nasty. Just wanted to know if I thought about something. He was calling expectation bias in training right and I didn't really know any man I was like. What do you mean by expectation bias? And then he told me a little more it was basically what you just described. It's like how do you deal with when your mind is set on seeing one thing? That's what you're expecting. And then something different is happening and to be honest. I don't see it very much in training but what you just described was perfect. Exactly what the talk about do you guys talk about that at all in your training that specific conflict We'll make a big deal about going over all the threats that could be going on so as soon as we brief all the threats. We kinda talk about all the threats. This threat might be kind of one that comes up on the fly. But if there's ever a moment where you feel any kind of confusion or you feel any dow it's like immediately go around this. Go take off. We'll talk about last hour. The runways taped or not paved or regain rebrith. We WanNA do. We can go somewhere else. We can talk about some things especially to ask them because the weather changes so often. We have a very strict kaylynn limit were. Some operators may be part ninety one. Maybe they don't relate abide by that but we do not go in there with a win more than two not talented. So if we're coming down on finally tell us that the tailwinds do high will do out and go around and go somewhere else. So it's definitely safety. And you always going to err on the side of safety so one person was real comfortable. You go out now. That's awesome and there's two things that you just said that I always hammer on my students about so I just have to act on. One wasn't aboard point where you're talking about having a certain way point if you're not on glide path through or whatever then it's just an automatic and the other is that a superior if it's eleven knots. Tailwind you're out you don't think about it. It's not ten anymore. It's eleven soared on once really good. That's good stuff. I feel like so many of those things that we can cement those for GE pilots. You know there was a guy that flew into Palo. Alto in a mean. I don't know if you've ever flown a Moonie but it's like doesn't want to stop flying. I mean not only. Is the wing like six inches off the ground at slamming her flow. It won't quit and twice in my career I've seen people come in and Mooney's and just go around late in one case and hit the trees on in this last case Palo Alto literally just floated till he went right off the end of the runway and that was a fatal accident. You know people say like what would happen. How could he avoid it? I mean abort point in any airplane is a great idea right. No absolutely and it's something that like you said when you drill down and generally aviation to create that kind of mindset. You always think that it's not going to happen to you but it can happen to you. You're gonNA find yourself in this situation. You don't feel comfortable. Then you gotta go around just like no if saying like you can't succumb to that mindset

"I had just moved down to Los Angeles in nineteen forty five after I spent two and a half miserable years being a secretary in Palo Alto. I moved down here. I knew no gay people in Palo Alto. As a matter of fact I didn't even know the Word Lesbian in Palo Alto and the way I did find out was I was sunning myself up on the top of the garage of the place where I had Rome and some other girls that lived in the building came up to and spread out their towels. I somehow noticed that all of their talk was The plenty of it. They never mentioned boys names and I thought well gee that's refreshing to hear some people talk that aren't always talking about their boyfriends and breakup and this that and the other one of the girls turned to me and said are you gay and I said well. I try to be as happy as I can. Under the circumstances but and they all laugh then they said. Oh no no and they told me what it meant and I said well yes. I guess I am because I don't. I don't really actively go out and search for BOYFRIENDS I. I don't care for that. And so they will. You must come with us to a girls softball game. The Game Wasn't exciting to me aboard the Tara. A May I mean. I just don't care for Sports. I know that's very funny for a lesbian to say but it is true. I never have cared for but I went along to be with the crowd. You see then the next thing next week or so. They took me down to a gay bar. I looked around man. I knew tears came to my is partly because of the cigarette. Smoke and I thought gee how wonderful that all these girls can be together so the girls could dance together there so I started dancing with one or the other of them. That would come over and ask me. I never asked them. They asked me because I was obviously feminine. I had my hair long and I wore jewelry and I just didn't look like a gay guy how you know. I didn't have the close cropped hair tailored attire. That was so prevalent in those days and I didn't do any of that jazz because I just didn't feel like it. You know and I was darned if I'm GONNA. I was going to do it just because everybody else did. I mean I am a girl. I've always been a girl. The only difference is I like girls.

Leadership During Difficult Times

"Guest on this episode of the strategic is Keith Hennessy. These days he teaches at the Stanford Graduate School of Business Stanford Law School and his leadership fellow at the Bush Institute where he's teaching our leadership program sessions during the Bush administration. Though Keith was the assistant to the president for economic policy was the director of the National Economic Council during the financial crisis in two thousand seven and two thousand eight so those days Keith was working around the clock to blunt the impact of that financial crisis on on our economy. So we thought it'd be interesting today to hear about that experience while we're reacting to the cove in nineteen pandemic. That's happening right now. Keith thank you so much for taking time while your social distancing to call in happy to help hello from Palo Alto California. Well first off. Can you paint a picture of what it's like to be a decision maker in government during a time like this because I know right now? I'm watching the news. And there's just a constant stream of information things are changing by the minute and some of it is is fact some of it is conjecture. Some of it is somewhere in between. What's that stream of information like inside the White House and in our government? Yeah well an advantage. You have when you're working in the White House is that you get you. Get the best information that's out there. I always joke that one of the wonderful privileges. You can pick up the phone call pretty much anyone in the world and say. I need to help the president understand about your area of expertise. Can you spend some time with me? The person will always say yes. And then you have. You have a tremendous Roster of experts working in the government and then also outside of government Who can help feed you information? So the information tends to find you and if it doesn't you've you've got a team of talented people who can go find out The best available answer to any question. That's out there but there definitely is sort of a fog of war we're You think you know what's going on and you probably have a better picture than almost anyone else But there are a lot of unknowns. There are a lot of things that You know that you're just making educated guesses at so that's tough in hindsight This is one of the big mistakes. In terms of historic analysis is in hindsight. It is very easy to forget the things that now seem obvious. But we're not obvious time You know the biggest mistake about hindsight announces at the time. You didn't know what was going to happen next. And while you thought you knew what your actions and decisions might Might produce you're not always certain And then the other thing is is stressful And so you learn how individuals react to stressful environments and then you learn how teams React to stressful environments and you know I think it also depends on how long the crisis Lassen how long the pressure is applied. It's one thing to be in a stressful situation for days and weeks. It's a whole another thing to be in it for weeks and months and wears on people and In overtime that takes a toll because the people who are making these decisions are after all humans right. That's actually kind of interesting. And and so how? How do you keep team functioning under these kind of in under this kind of situation? And where might we might be doing this for a long time? Yeah I'm not sure I have many tricks. We were in in one respect. We were fortunate in that the the financial crisis in two thousand eight hit in year eight. So of the Bush team We knew how to operate as a team. We knew how the mechanisms of governments worked on a lot of US had four or five or six or seven years under our belts working for this president working with each other So we had those advantages of experience and know each other and frankly had a really good team In that last year With with Hank Paulson sort of as the the field. General for the president with Ben Bernanke over at the Fed and Kevin Warsh And with a lot of amazing people internally and so that teen Kinda you know it means that you don't have to worry about those aspects of it. You can just focus on the crisis of hand. So we had a bunch of pros. We had a bunch of pros. Who knew how to work together. And then you know you just you kind of say look. There will be time to sleep and time to rest on the back end of this. We're just going to keep pushing basically because we have to. I think the other thing is the morale is really important and and Bush thing. We were really fortunate because the morale comes in large part from the president You know the morale and the tone I always say that the tone in the White House is eighty percent set by the president and twenty percent by the White House Chief of staff and we had a president and a chief of staff who were creating a tone and environment where the rest of us didn't have to worry about the politics We could basically just focus on. What was the? What was the best policy? And how do we try to make it happen? So then you mentioned the that you knew how the government works and the government with all of its departments and with experts who sometimes have competing priorities. So in general strokes. Can you talk about how to how these departments all work together and coordinate during a crisis like this? Well that's what the White House policy councils are for. At the time we had four of them there are now three In the White House of the National Security Council is the granddaddy of them all And the National Economic Council in the Domestic Policy Councils And I worked in a on the National Economic Council staff so these are people who work in the White House for the president and Their job is to coordinate policy making in their in their area for the All the information that comes in for the president goes through the Policy Council to sort of structure. It make sure the presence president knows what's going on and what that best information is and in particular because the president has got a lot of advisers each of whom is responsible for looking at a part of the problem and the Policy Council Stash. Job is to make sure that the president has the information that they need to look at the whole problem. And so when you run one of these Policy cancels you get very good at running meetings and conference calls to pull all the advisers together To to compare information to figure out what decisions the president to make and then to make sure that the president hears from all of you know his advisors that he needs to we. We would joke that. Our job was to set up clean fights cleaner where you'd have conflicting advice. The you know one team advisors would set a precedent you do X. And other advisers would say the president should do why you. WanNa make sure the president gets the information. He needs so that he can make that decision and then when he makes the decision that everybody throughout the executive branch actually executes. Does what the president wants to do right so you would actually present. Exxon wide both team ex ante y presented the president. Let him make that decision. Yeah and I shouldn't describe as really two teams that a mismatch speak mistaken. Are My these are. These are different advisors who were all part of the president skiing. But right right right just disagree on a particular question and You know these. These decisions are hard. None of the options are particularly good. Because you're always over constrained But there are just different. Trade offs different choices that the advisers would make. And what you WANNA do. Is You want to hear the president. Have the president here. Those arguments be able to push the advisers. And then say okay. Here's what we're going to do You know the privilege of working for the president. Is You get to be in the room to make the argument or the option that you think you should make. And then when he hasn't sides it you've got to go out there and execute even if he went with The other option one that you didn't recommend be interesting thing about the financial crisis is that there were a lot fewer disagreements about what to do among

The COVID-19 crisis is making the internet more available

"Millions of people and more every day are working from home or learning from home during the corona virus outbreak. And that means we need the internet now more than ever Wi fi virtual private networks to connect securely to work broadband cellular connections so is our digital infrastructure up to the task and how can companies and even cities prepare for such a massive unplanned experiment. Jonathan Rankin tall is the former chief information officer. For the city of Palo Alto California. He says there's enough infrastructure but it isn't always evenly distributed there is available bandwidth in the US the big telcos of builds some significant infrastructure across the country. What we're going to have to see is communities. Get access to that broadband. They're still in the United States. Nineteen million people who don't have access to broadband in part of the problem is it can be a little expensive for for many homes and also just some communities. Don't have the prerequisite technology in place. So maybe having millions of Americans all of a sudden do remote work. It's going to act as a strong encouragement for government intervention more spending and for the Telco companies to also step up as well where they're still got right and we have seen even just in the last few days companies say that they're going to drop data caps that they're going to increase speeds for lower income users is going to be any going back after that. I think we're GONNA have a lot of questions I mean. I hope people to wash their hands after this event is over. These are good behaviors and we need to continue them. Some of our experience suggests that if we get over this we may go back to our old routine and all the wonderful things that the private sector's doing to step up right now. Dr. Mayo resort to the way we've been doing things. I don't know the answer to that. You know it'll depend how things really start to progress over the next few weeks I think if it's long term which I certainly hope not people will get used to it and there might be a greater inclination to to keep it in place or perhaps offer access to lower income communities providing them with reduced course and more access as we see more people effectively adopting remote work because it works right like. Do you think this is the moment when we will all say? Oh Hey turns out? The Internet really is a utility. Well I think we'd all agree now that the Internet is magical. It's absolutely magical me liquid. It's enabling us to not only have millions and millions of workers all over the world work from home but it's allowing scientists to collaborate in a speed that we've never seen before collaborating on vaccines sharing information between science organizations and governments and working on the medicine so the Internet you know we have to say is is quite a magical platform for humanity right. Let's talk about security for a bit. What do companies have to do? I mean some companies work with very sensitive information and require people to be offsite even to onsite to access it. What can they do? There's gotta be continual investment in Cybersecurity. This is not a you. Write a check once and you're good to go. You got to build a little department depending on the size of organization immature big airline company or a bank. You're going to have a huge security organization and you're going to be investing likely hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars a year in keeping the security good so on the enterprise side for sure absolutely for sure. The costs are high in their continuing. To increase on the home side. Does enough low cost tools. I mean there's actually a handful of VPN software that a home user can console that's free and then there's some premium services that are relatively low cost so if you got VPN some backup software. Antivirus and anti malware. You're you're in good shape you know in the twenty first century. Don't we can guarantee that you're going to have absolute security.

Elisha Goldstein :: A Course in Mindful Living

"Urge. Yesterday is Alicia Goldstein. Welcome to the PODCAST. Good to see you. Oh so so great to be here. Thanks for having me and I wanted to speak with you for quite some time because you've written many books and have a couple with Different Bob Stall in your your name has been married for quite some time in the we had a very Unplanned in for to its meeting at Mindful Leader Conference that a year or so ago I was just such a nice surprise when so glad to finally be able to bring you on the podcast. Glad you're here so what I'd like to do is My audience may not know about you and so many you can spend a little bit of time and also about your background. Okay you know. I think I came to to mindfulness much. Like I'm guessing you did or a lot of people did and you know that was at a time when say I keep with this story? It keeps the the year's getting longer and longer but this was This was a little over. Twenty years ago Maybe twenty five years and a little bit something like that where I was working in San Francisco during the dotcom. Boom and and Early on and that was I was working hard and I was actually really successful or that was doing managing sales teams. I was up in San Francisco and and And I was working hard but I was also playing a whole lot harder and that was the reality. And I think I was lost and I was confused and You know in in my success at the time was kind of clouding over over all of that making it so I couldn't really see that I was actually had a problem at that time and And I went away I was. I was urged to go with my family kind of an intervention And I went away to a kind of a Jewish retreat center in southern California and called Brandeis Bardin Institute and They told me they said Hey. Go go over there. And I'm like how could I do something like that? I got all this appear. They said you know if it doesn't doesn't work out for you in a day. Just don't worry about it you can leave. I'm like okay so I go there when the first day. I'm I'm there I Within a short period of time I run into this guy who introduces himself and You know because I'm challenging. Everything there the prayers versus like that introduces himself. And he says Oh. I seem kind of a stressed out and I don't chew Do something for marriage. You try doing something for me like when I just expect something. I'm like okay. Whatever and so we hands this orange and and he says don't you just soften your body for a minute and I want you to kind of bring your senses to this orange for a second. This is crazy. What the heck is this guy? What does he asked me to do? And so and I hold the orange and he has the feel it kind of just just kind of humor. Mace as an sensing into the touch of the orange smoothness of it the Opening my eyes to the colors of it and saying that it's kind of bright and it wasn't until I started to actually peel back and I saw the zest pop out of it. Something I haven't noticed before really an orange at that at that time as kind of taken aback surprised by it and and as I was late opening it up I saw the veins of the orange and I was really kind of starting to get into it and and And then finally put this into my mouth and it just exploded in my mouth exploded and I had this big smile. My Face Kinda laughed at that time and And as I was doing that it was the best tasting orange at ever taste in my mouth. So how do you feel and I said well? I forgot feel good. I feel relaxed and he said well. What would the days weeks and months ahead be like? If you had more of this in your life and I'm like sign me up. Sounds great and and so that was my introduction. Really into the experience of mindfulness was with through this tasting an orange and it wasn't and it wasn't that that was actually my first introduction to somebody because I've been reading about it for a long time. I think there's a lot of listeners here. There's a lot of people who start off by reading and there's certainly like a lot of books out there that are really popular that don't wreck actually suggest any experience it's more conceptual and there's a lot of reading but you know that's like car our introduction to a sense of feeling more president intentional in our lives in the world and it could be also inspirational and so the interesting thing about this story is You know go on this place to To really get into it and I think I was voted most likely to be a rabbi. You know while I was there and And Go home. I go back to my I go back to my my workplace thirty days later and and I'm and I'm wearing just as a side note that a lot of people don't know is I go back and I'm wearing these things. Called seats seats seats. Seats are like this. This cloth you wherever your body that has these fringes on there and you see a Lotta Orthodox Jews where this type of stuff and that the the fringes are meant to remind you to do good deeds in the world. And I'm like that's fantastic. Why wouldn't I wear something that reminds me to do? Good deeds in the world because I was like in that place generosity and art and so I go to my corporate work environment with button-down shirt and suit with these seats. Seat hanging aside my pants and everyone thinks I'm crazy and And then you know it took me about one week to fall back into my old habits real power I later learned behind our environments and and the influence the people we hang around with have on us and the influence our environment has on us And how we're like ultimately really interdependent with the environment and the people that we're we're around so but that was a very interesting thing took me about a week however a deep seed was planted within me and And I start had a thirst to kind of learn more and I decided to go back to school. Eventually for my to leave the corporal. Go back for a doctor program and in psychology in Palo Alto and And that's where I met my wife on the very first day that I was there so I know that was the right decision and and And and it was there that I I got. I got introduced to the sky. named window resear-. Obama was an eastern teacher at the time. And and one of the things we were doing in this class was reading really Khan and a contemplative way and which meant like you read really slowly which is something was a great gift to me to learn how to read that way because a lot of us right now and this is incredible tip for everyone who's listening right now and you just see that if you see this in yourself that when there's really great books out there because there's there's a lot of great books out there and And we read them where we're reading them and then after we're done reading them we just put them back on the shelf. Read it through. Put back on the shelf. What's the next great book out there? And and the reality is to learn how to read slightly slower and take in the pages even pas re less read slower and contemplate. While you're reading is going to be so much more powerful you'll squeeze so much more juice out of the book if you do that and so that was a great gift me but one of the things that I came across as I was doing that was that for him. One of the highest there was this Experience you know that he kept coming back to call the sacred experience and you know it was. It was real high form of living and and I started resonating with that and I said wow I wanna I wanNA learn to have more sacred moments in my life because thousands of many years from now on my deathbed hopefully looking back. I'll have you know to be able to live a sacred life will will feel so good. And so Be feels a meaningful and so I decided I wanted to study how you create sacred moments and can people actually have more cultivate more of these in their lives and they realized in order to do that You needed to be present and intentional and I was a doctoral student and for doctoral students You need to create unique research and so I was like well. What's out there? That will teach us how to be present. That's actually been studied by science right now so I can like drawn it for this doctoral research paper which was later by the way that that whole study that I was that that I did there was later published in the Journal Clinical Psychology. But what I found was it was mindfulness based stress reduction. Ted You're very familiar with and so and this wonderful program sure all your listeners know about it and And is used that. And that's where I met Bob Stall and He was he was the leading teacher in. Bs are at the time outside of Umass and you know I went through his program and then became really close to him. And then we really we connected and I started getting teacher trained by and and And that was really the birth of my more formal experience. You know into mindfulness and the training of it and the practice of it in everyday life

"Mr Adams finds his new checking account very useful instead of collecting the money. Direct wreck from the Ellendale National Bank. The company does it through its own bank like many other banks it sends its checks to the Federal Reserve Bank for Collection Action. The Federal Reserve Bank is set up to handle thousands of checks from hundreds of banks in a single day in nineteen gene. forty-seven a check winds. Its Way through a bank to get the positive and legions of bank workers are clocking in countless hours to deal with all those checks. The Post War economy was booming but that meant banks were now drowning and paperwork. They were forced to close at two PM just to leave time time for filling out ledgers by hand and they were still falling behind a fast powerful machine was urgently needed to keep up with the pace of business over Bank of America. They had millions of checks to handle each day. Here's William Casio professor at the Kellogg School of Management Cement and northwestern university. Can you imagine the world banking without computers. I mean this is heavy paperwork intensive in the street and particularly the case of Bank of America with all the multiple branches. So there's all this information that they want quickly and To be able to communicate and also due process it So that was really important for for such a large company and I couldn't. They understood that computers was the way of future. So in nineteen fifty fifty be of a contracted Stanford Research Institute to figure out how to automate the handling of all those checks it took Sri five years ears to build a prototype which they called the electronic recording machine accounting or IRMA. The machine had over a million feet of wiring Eight thousand vacuum tubes and weighed about twenty five tons it has the potential to handle fifty thousand transactions a day Bank of America with keen to start producing the IRMA. Right away so they sent out a request for proposal to electrons manufacturers to bid on on the job of course everyone figured the winner would be the Juggernaut of business machines. Miss Snow White herself. Ibm Doc Baker was the VP of electrons division over at GE and he knew his boss quarter didn't want to move into IBM's territory. He new computers were out of bounds when he got wind of Bank of America. RFP Will Baker saw an opening he didn't want to miss he approached Barney. Oldfield the manager of GE's Microwave Laboratory in Palo Alto which was the nearest facility to Sri and he made oldfield a proposition. Here's John Joseph and associate professor of strategy at the University of California Irvine. You know I think here was was somebody who was a very successful aggressive entrepreneur type at GE and was a savvy manager and businessman and saw this as a huge opportunity to grow the division Baker along with Oldfield was able to convince as their boss coordinator that this would be a special purpose process control system not a general purpose computer not something that would upset IBM. Ge was certainly not going into the computer business. The reason I think Coordin- eventually capitulated was that that he put a condition on them going after it and said just this contract. We don't want to enter the business machine market or generally we we want enter specifically this particular bid and you can go after it and so he said go coroner let them go ahead with the RFP feeling confident that they wouldn't win the contract anyway. Let him blow off some creative steam and then old fueled hand-delivered their proposal Rosal to the Bank San Francisco office and waited then much to everyone's surprise IBM pulled Out of the race and even more unexpectedly. GE's proposal rose to the top Bank of America. Awarded them the contract not any of the other technology manufacturers the underdogs got it the underdogs. Ge one the multi million dollar their contract on April Ninth Nineteen fifty-six be of as board of directors accepted GE's proposal Baker signed and a thirty one million dollar contract without running it by his boss Corner.

Google Eyes San Jose For a New Campus

"Valley is home to countless companies and their employees but as those companies have grown. They've caused the cost of living in the area to skyrocket and created a housing was in crisis. But it's getting crowded. Another star companies are expanding to other cities cities that are learning to be cautious about the potential harm. That could come with. These is new businesses that brings us to Google. They're looking to build a new campus. In San Jose and Tech reporter Rob Copeland has been checking it out. Rob Thanks for joining joining us. Thank you for having me so tell us about what this New Campus in San. Jose is supposed to look like so to understand Dan. This you have to take a step back and realize that Silicon Valley is sort of a hot word but SAN JOSE is right on the edge of it. It's in the South Bay it's about about depending on the traffic could be two two and a half hours south of San Francisco so this is sort of the hinterlands of Silicon Valley. It's it's barely there and what Google has said is we need a ton of new space for twenty five thousand additional employees so we have to start looking at these places that we weren't willing to go to before four so they're looking to build a giant campus twice as much office space as the Empire State building around what is not a particularly attractive neighborhood in in San Jose. Now you mentioned the Empire State Building that is a very tall building with many many floors as is very typical for New York City. I'm guessing they're not going to take up a very small space and Make a skyscraper in the middle of San Jose Correct San Jose like most of the bay area and in fact like almost everywhere we were in California outside of La in a few blocks in San Francisco is extremely SM- sprawling. It's not a skyscraper place. So here we're talking about about an extended campus along a river. Google hasn't said exactly how tall the buildings will be. But we're looking at ten twenty maybe one building of twenty five stories and it's really going to transform what is a bunch of parking lots Into perhaps a new city so one would assume that a place that just has a bunch of parking lots and is on the very edge of Silicon Valley would be thrilled to have google come in and set up a headquarters there. How is San Jose reacting will well? That's the really interesting thing. The traditional theory here is you know everyone wants to be Rochester with Kodak or they WanNa be Hershey with Hershey. But there's a big difference between between how the San Jose city leadership feels about Google. And how a lot of residents to the city leadership says hey a huge employer our residents need jobs and and frankly they pay taxes that we can fund schools and all sorts of other obviously city services but at public hearings. And when I've spent a lot of time in San Jose as talking to residents they feared the other end of this the gentrification and the getting pushed out of their homes than the feeling frankly that San Dan Jose will change culturally. It will just be another place full of tech frozen Patagonia fleeces and not just a cultural aspect right. I mean there's an affordability ludi questioned. That happens when people with a lot of money come into a town. That isn't used to those kinds of incomes right exactly. This is a problem acute problem in the bay area. And it's a problem in California at large California's incredibly popular place to set up a business particularly in tech or entertainment but local regulations. Make it close to impossible to build new housing. So this isn't exactly rocket science here if you've taken one economics class or if you've wikipedia supply and demand if you've got a whole bunch of new rich employees coming in and you're not building new homes. They'RE GONNA bid up the price of existing homes and that's GonNa make it too expensive for the people who live in those homes now. I'm thinking this reminds me a lot of when Amazon announced plans to build a second heart headquarters One in Virginia and then one here in New New York that didn't go over so well. With residents in New York and in fact those plans were and ended up being Scrapped completely Amazon. Pulled out of New York. How outed Google go about trying to win over San Jose right so there are some important differences but also some similarities? The big differences Amazon ran what was essentially a beauty contest. They went to a bunch of cities including frankly a lot of them they were never going to move to and they said make us. Your best offer gives us tax credits convince us why we should come to you. And at the end of the day that led to the axing of you know H Q two in New York. Google has said few really important things here one no tax credits. They say we're going to actually pay San Jose above and beyond what the law says. We don't want money from them. We're GONNA give that money. They have also said. We're not running a competitive process. You know we're not going to go to the next city over. If this doesn't work for San Jose were just in it for San Jose. We want this to work in San Jose and and the The other bit is that Google is not just talking to the city about housing. You know they're lobbying the state they're making contributions to community groups. You can be cynical or you can not but they do appear to be trying to be a bit more of a corporate citizen here. Why do they want to go to San Jose? What is San Jose have to offer that? They're so excited about so. San Jose is is at the very bottom of Silicon Valley. But it's right around a train station and this isn't that sexy but it's true if you could get workers to take the train from San Francisco South to San Jose you can have a faster way for them to get to work and you could potentially attract better talent and San. Jose is a big city right. You know I was actually surprised when I started this project few months ago. San Jose is the tenth biggest city in the country. This is a huge city on its own right and it already has big problems. You Walk through downtown. There's punishing homelessness and there aren't any easy solutions there. So the idea that you would take all this open space and you build offices for tech workers is. It's a difficult pitch for some people. Is this a tide shift. I mean is it just Google being a corporate citizen or tech companies realizing that not just winning over a local officials is not going to get them the headquarters that they want your exactly right. The problem is these tech giants are sort of the big bad wolf wolf right now. And it's not just in housing and it's not just in San Jose and when you talk to executives out here which is you know we have a whole office of people and that's what we do all day. They're sort of shocked that the our companies are considered. You know the enemy so this is an effort at a very important juncture for Google which is under investigation nation by the government to sort of put. Its most friendly foot forward and to try to make this work. We've also seen tech companies responding to their airport in the housing crisis in California. Just for people who aren't there. Can you just give us some perspective and some scope on how big of an issue the housing crisis is in the the bay area and why people in San Jose could be really concerned. Seen somebody like Google come in a company like go come in. So here's a really telling stat. FACEBOOK FACEBOOK has a program in which they will pay the difference in rent for a handful of teachers in Palo Alto which is very rich town right by facebook headquarters so facebook has said. If you're a teacher and you can't afford to live in Palo Alto. We will pay the difference between your rent and thirty percent of income so a unreasonable rent and facebook is paying more than thirty thousand dollars a year in rent subsidies for these teachers as thirty thousand dollars ahead there. So there's a huge gap between what quote regular people make and how much you'd have to make to just live so this is a crisis. That's getting worse. Frankly not better. And it's something that affects. Frankly everyone in the bay area you know from facebook isn't the only big company that's done stuff like this right. I mean apple has committed. Did two point. Five billion dollars for affordable housing in California. Google has already done and meet some land donations in San Francisco so we are seeing them. Address is this issue but obviously that's just kind of the tip of the iceberg to direct via situation that they were largely part of creating. What's next for Google and San Jose? How close are we to seeing this deal actually announced? This is a very important year for Google and San Jose before the end of the year. We're going to see the San Jose City Council. Vote on this over the next few months. Google is going to come out with its quote community packages basically the money. It's willing to pay a to various groups in San Jose to build affordable housing to build homeless shelters to set aside areas for park land. So this is going to be a big negotiation in a big back and forth. And let's not forget Google search engine. It's a big advertising company and it's a public company at the end of the day if it doesn't make sense for shareholders it's not GonNa do it would rob Copeland reporting from San Francisco. Thanks so much for joining us so much

"palo alto" Discussed on KQED Radio

"In downtown Palo alto it gets my heart and he began comparing Facebook to to Google and the next kind of big platform on the internet and I remember thing myself great and how much with possible and but at the same time feeling like because those field goals because the goal and it had been shifting so often why not you know what I mean maybe and it will but even in even at that moment throughout that period it was hard for me to understand why I just didn't feel it as much as he or as much as many of the other employees because in theory you know it was it was an immense opportunity there was there were so many people are signing up there was it was so exciting for for him at least it was it was a mission you know the idea of connecting people to one another was good in and of itself right and I could understand that and at the time on I leaned in that direction and agreed with that but I also was a bit skeptical of of the idea that connection and alone was necessarily going to transform the world I did the the the the the missionary bent to it it sounded and some a little bit too much like a lot of the very religious people that I grew up with who could we're almost blinded by by a face so much she couldn't think about some of the problematic effects of religion or anything anything else so so I stayed as I talk about in the work for for three years and then went on to something I did feel a mission and which is was to work for then senator Obama I'm saying just in those early years at Facebook for another minute I would you know part of what your work now has been about is grappling with the ethics of what you helped create right and so it made me wonder I mean you know I try to think of myself at like nineteen and twenty and twenty one and what what my ethical quandaries where it's like did you guys have moments as a crew where you would sort of pause and be like all right we ARE creek is is this thing is as big as it feels like it's going to be are we pausing to ask ethical questions along the way or was it just you know hit the next mark no yeah and that that that that was a problem yeah and well I think that they're grappling with that more I do diverge on a whole host of places where he in the Facebook leadership team have landed as I've been public about but there were there there wasn't a lot of of talk about the the ethical implications I mean it's so easy to highlight the positive stories but you naturally you know gravitate away from the negative ones I'm their customer service features they were priced some privacy issues there some safety issues in those things began to be built and built and over time so there was awareness of the fact that the the platform could be used and I negative or destructive way but no there there was a there was a face that on balance this was going to be good for the world yeah we will return to that I wanna go to your your role in the bombing campaign and you were one of the people who sort of created the whole digital strategy and you write about the book which I thought was really interesting that people largely track that up to here's this Facebook guy he knows tack he figured out how to great technological solutions campaigning when in fact what you felt like was really different about what you did had little to do with tech and much more to do with something else can talk a little bit about what you're most proud of around that work yeah the tech in the two thousand eight campaign was not anything particular error when he slick let's say I mean the it was it was helpful to have some tools that have been built the remnants out of the dean campaign in two thousand four company called blue state digital it build some built some tools that the Obama campaign with able to contract and and by Sir the tech was helpful and we were able to do things the because of the tech but the real magic of that era was the fact that we had a candidate who asked people to believe again and to combat the cynicism that was pervasive then I think it's gotten even worse now and then when he asked people to believe again there was an opportunity to then say okay I can do something and to for people to raise their hand certainly give some money of course but also to go and say actually you know organized event on Saturday and our role as online organizer's was yes to build the tool to make it easy to like set a time and recruit people to come the authors say will we can do it the event to the agenda and how we gonna make sure that that work is actually gonna help elect Obama as president so you know instead of just talking about how great he is let's talk about who our friends who we can recruit the door so we can come knock on the of phone calls that we can make in a local field office that kind of infrastructure building and because that primary was so extended between between Obama and Hillary Clinton what it meant is that as the state's came became increasingly important in each state there was a there was a an infrastructure grassroots infrastructure that had been at work largely through digital connections for months if not for years and so Obama kept winning in the states like Idaho and Oklahoma and the and unexpected places for particular for a black American like a bomb to be winning with these big margins and I think a piece of that was the fact that we have the technology to head enable people to self organize for quite some time yeah and but the much bigger force obviously was the candidate who is asking them to believe again in the first place and did you have any mentorship in organizing like how did you make that leap from Facebook to as a campaign like that we had a great set of organizer's on that campaign Buffy wicks who's now in the an elected here in the bay area it was one of the field leaders they were leaders in each of the states who were focused on and and so there was that there was a big there's a big network I'm trying to learn as quickly as I could portion we along primary certain February of seven of two thousand seven and the first first caucus I think with a full year later so that that was helpful there sometimes but the plane together at least a little bit before it started on the runway do you remember your first time seeing Brack Obama speak and like being aware of him as a candidate the first time I think I met him in the Chicago office for the first time I had seen him give speeches on television and digitally and read his books but I met him for the first time in the office but but I think that's I don't know I had gone to rally it's a little like as I'm asking like I feel like there's a little bit of a forest Gump quality to your life because it's like you like in counter mark Zuckerberg at Harvard and then you're encountering Brock about in Chicago and it's like you're really one of the like major moments of our I don't know if you want to get there but this is a big part of what I talk about the book this is also a problem for me because I had because Facebook was such a breakout success and then obviously the Obama campaign not just one but we wanted a certain kind of way where technology was critical to it I I got very convinced that I could like you know what's next I can you know I felt like I had the midas touch yeah I was totally wrong about I had I had done some smart things but I have gotten very lucky in in multiple moments in my life and so some of that does experience though problematically turned in to hubris which you know let's all kinds of failures in the in the period well let's hear that so then you get a great exactly let's go to the good learning really important part of not just your story but every you know twenty something year old story of of you know coming up against your own limitations and your own world views so you you bought the new Republic famously and and so you know this hundred year old print magazine I'm sure many of her from familiar and you had this vision of journalists bringing into the twenty first century fixing this business model of journalism which of course I know all too well so broken and it didn't work it failed and it failed at a very high monetary costs but also to some extent reputational costs for you feeling like one for the mac and for the magazine and and you said that that was a real turning point for you which you just started to to him that they can you talk a little bit about the texture of that turning point what was the learning their yeah I mean it was so as as you were saying hi I'm Buffy Republic in twenty twelve you know I'm it was in a period right around when Facebook went public I had I had money and wanted to do something that was good for the world I had always been interested in journalism and really believe in its importance and in democracy I particularly loved the long from kind of journalism I was you know I'm particularly then you know a subscriber to New York review of books The New Yorker the new Republic occasionally often on the nation like I was in and in many ways I just couldn't get enough of this of this stuff and the fact that so many of these publications are particularly new Republic was what felt to me like at that point really struggling to to make it work felt like an opportunity and that's where the the hubris came and I mean I I really did believe that with some smarts elbow grease and capital and an investment we could find silver bullet we could we could find some way not necessarily to make it you know a super profitable endeavor but but when that would be break even and I was last person in the world to learn that a lot of these publications have never been very keep and they were effectively essentially public goods and I spend multiple years trying to apply a kind of market world logic that when these things have to be a business for them to work in the long term not missing what was right there directly visible to in retrospect it felt like everybody but me which is that these things are public institutions they were public goods they were never going to make money they were probably going to lose money they happen to be incorporated as for profits a hundred years ago but they they're effectively not for profits and just naming that and taking that owns a responsibility but I I had too much too much ambition too much too much optimism so I pushed in invested quite a bit of money and and pushed particularly in the digital direction because as much as I want to hold on to print I also want to bring in new audiences and then made some pretty fundamental management errors I brought in the CEO who wanted to let go the editor it it got very messy and the other at the time and doesn't senior editors left on mass and we had a you know a moment where we had to stop printing for a couple months we re staff we we grew back but there's no question that the institution was weakened because of that experience because of mine failure but but I also think that in the long term the new Republic I sold it to you a year later it's still going it it's and it's one of a very special small set of institutions in American public discourse which I hope will you know fixed on for a long time how did you get through that like how did you after all of the successes having that failure like did you.

Moscow's Depo Market: Russia's Top Culinary Destination

"Palo Alto Welcome to food neighborhoods monocle twenty four. I am Marcus hip. Older cities have areas the local love for their food and drink offerings. And in this series we get to know these places these week we head to the DEP. Oh Marcus in most. Go avast converted trim factory that makes a claim to be the biggest food hall on the continents are guys is more cools feo. Matt's variety in color possibly aren't words you associate with Russian cuisine. Not unless varieties of soup. The color of beat it certainly true that until recently there wasn't so much variety on the Moscow restaurant scene I I was hearing the T- thousands writing about food and drink for local paper and restaurants starting to diverse by then but for the most part you're looking at very high end. European food lead lower end Russian food on the big craze at the time which was Sushi. Well that's changed and you can see the change for yourself at a huge each market and food court just to the north central Moscow. The owners say it's the largest space of its kind in Europe. The markets housed in a converted. Tram de pay okay from the turn of the last century and spread over eleven thousand square meters about the size of a Manhattan City block the renovated building tape last year. And based seventy five restaurants and one hundred and forty stalls serving food from around the world. Anything from Bausch and pell may need to Fogo peaking doc natural lines barbecued meats. Traffic Crap Haggas and the club. It's still the New Year holidays in Russia and many Muscovites are out of town but Debo or they're pau as it's called here is buzzing outside. It's grim it's been a frequent winter here so there isn't even the usual thick layer of snow on the ground to brightens things up but in this red brick building. It's all glitter Christmas decorations and neon lights. It's mid afternoon and I'm today's visit a number twelve thousand Indi- seventy-three according to take on the markets website pushing through the mylene crowds and looking for a space at the table scattered around the market. I can believe that once your security which here is a metal detector in a couple of students faced God's staple of any public space in Moscow. You hit the local produce stalls fruits and vegetables not since spices. Caviar smoked fish and Russian cheeses. Don't be fooled by names. Names like Rockville Brio common. These are all produced locally and there's a political reason for that. Western dairy products have been under embargo in Russia since two thousand fourteen as part of the ongoing fallout from the Ukraine crisis. And this is given the country's cheesemakers a real boost. Not just to create imitations of French and Italian cheeses aces. They hear that. Pretty good imitations but also to develop more of their own. Actually there's a political element to the whole concept of deputy. When Muscovites came out to protest President Vladimir Putin's return to the Kremlin in twenty twelve? After four years as prime minister. The authorities didn't respond to their demands. They did attempt to appease the middle classes by making Moscow an easier place to live with better transport and better public spaces. Perhaps people would be less set on regime gene change and this food is very much a part of that. Now the the stores are arranged in tramlines as a not. The BUILDINGS HISTORY LINE AFER Georgian Moroccan dim sum and more lime beef Vietnamese Greek and a British pie shop admittedly doesn't seem to be doing very much trade see for a bar pass pizzas defeat desserts and health feed. If you're visiting you'll probably want to try something thing from Russia or other post-soviet cuisines you won't be able to find so easily elsewhere. So maybe try the mysteriously titled Back Man Whose Beck's which does a good Plov committee rice dish from Central Asia and Monte. Thick Greasy dumplings. Were just next door. There's back your corner offering skewers of meat as a by John Style and on a decent local wine list. If you're after Russian Russian head to the Tiger Gastro pub for Venison Pattaya and Salami which for seven hundred hundred and fifty rubles each. That's around nine pounds. Where you can try destroyed by Bruschi facilit- Russian classics cabbage seep minced? Hiring Full Schmidt meat cutlets cutlets in pies before heading back out into the slush. There are plenty of options to something sweet whether it's Russian delicacies. Like metabolic honey cake or Punky keke the local equivalent of dates or even Vegan and gluten. Free tards it's allowed bustling place and little Gordie for some people's tastes but if it's variety Brian Kelly or after in Moscow. DEMPO is a good place to start for Monaco in Moscow on

She focused on what she was doing and not on all the stuff that was happening around on the other side. Yeah. All right. When we get back. We're and talk more. That's just want to talk about what's happening now this week with the college admissions thing because it's it's the exact opposite of what you're talking about. And when we get back. We'll talk about that. We're here with Esther would just gaze. She's the author of a new book called how to raise successful people. She's also very well known journal. Teacher in Silicon Valley, a very prominent high school and also works a lot on education issues going forward and want to talk about that too. When we get back. We're back here with Esther would just sees the author of how to raise successful people, and she certainly has raised some successful people her children and also students at Palo Alto high school. We were talking ahead. Your book gets out later. We're talking ahead of red happening. This week is this college admission scandal where all these this is exactly the kind of thing you're talking against in the book, can you talk a little bit. But like when this popped up, what did you because this is people facilitating their children to get into things by cheating, essentially and not trusting them and not giving them independence. And you know, he handling them in ways that are disturbing to say, the least can you? I love to get your thoughts on that. This college cheating scandal is just the ultimate helicopter parenting. So the people that are participating in this. Let's just ask yourself. Why are they doing they're doing this? Because they don't trust and believe and respect their kids. They think their kids by themselves on their own will not be able to make it. And so a lot of the kids weren't even aware that their parents were doing this. But their parents were paying to make sure that they got into the college of their choice. They're being the parents choice. Right. So how does how does that child happened? You say this. It's like the there's parental anxiety. It's it starts with parental anxiety over achievement and or lack thereof. It's because parents think there's a very narrow path to success. And if they don't follow that narrow path to success the kid will fail. And so there's been a lot of there's a book written about how to raise an adult and to talks a lot about one of the problems. They see happening at Stanford, which is parents whose kids actually even get into Stanford. They moved to Palo Alto to be next to their kids to help them in their classes in college. I'm goodbye in Kayla. They need some help. And some of the Stanford professors have even complained that when a kid does poorly in the class the parent calls up. What is this all about? This is helicopter parenting to the extreme. And the number one thing kids say the number one problem is they say. I feel like I am not in control. I don't have control of my life. And that's why so many kids are depressed, right? And taking all these, you know, bad things because they are emotionally upset there is no control. They have no control. So that's a really important part is this idea of of having control over this. Do you were you surprised by these scant scandal? Actually, I wasn't surprised because I've seen so much helicopter parenting. And unfortunately, there's even been part of this scandal is at Palo Alto high scoring right. They're talking about that. Because there's been a bunch of tech people. The the focus was on a lot of these celebrities, which is interesting to the public at large. But there's been quite a few tech people in and and the pressures are enormous..

"You. Next up. We're going down to the peninsula where Wiley Greg has lived since the nineteen eighties. I was trained as a city planner. And I've always been puzzled since I've been living and working in Palo Alto. Why there were two downtowns? That's right Palo Alto, effectively has two downtowns. The main drag is University Avenue which connects to one one and it runs directly into the main entrance into Stanford. And then just a couple miles south is California avenue, another bustling street with shops cafes and restaurants. But why does this small city need to downtown's reporter Ryan Levy went back in time to find out the story behind Paolo Alto? Hs dueling downtown's dates back to before Powell to even existed. So the town of Mayfield was established here sometime following the gold rush. That's Laura Jones. President of the Stanford historical society. She says Mayfield was one of many small towns dotted among the farms of the nineteenth, century peninsula. And so there was a small downtown of general stores and blacksmiths and saloons and lumber yards that served the farming community that surrounded that small downtown was California avenue or Lincoln street as it was called back then and when Leland and Jane Stanford came looking in eighteen eighty six for a town to support the new university they were building nearby. They turned to Mayfield then just one condition. They went to see the leaders of the town of Mayfield and asked them if they would close the saloons because they were concerned about the students having access to liquor now this was during the heart of the temperance movement and Stanford knew that having a dry town associated with his university was a good political move. But Mayfield had thirteen saloons. It was known as a place where farmers could come and take a load off. The end of a hard week. So when the stanfords made their offer and the leaders of the town of Mayfield refused to close their saloons. Luckily, for the stanfords they had a friend who was able to just buy up seven hundred acres of land nearby and start selling lots affectively building a new town. If you bought one of the lots you were not allowed to sell liquor on it, and if you did the property reverted, and so they established a dry town, which is now what we think of as Palo Alto. The two towns coexisted for about twenty years, but as Palo Alto continued to grow and thrive Mayfield began to struggle. Finally may feel gave it up and incorporated it self into Palo Alto in nineteen twenty five. The town of Mayfield was no more now Palo Alto already had a Lincoln street. So they renamed Mayfield old downtown California avenue and nearly a century later. It's one of the last reminders of the place that refused to close its bars. When Stanford came. To town. In case you were wondering you couldn't legally buy a drink on University Avenue Palo Alto original downtown until nineteen seventy-one and even back when the stanfords were demanding dry college town, they were the owners of the world's largest winery, just north of Chico, and they had a winery on campus hypocrites. Our next question. Takes us to the palace of fine arts in San Francisco. It's like a little slice of ancient Greece plopped right in the middle of the marina district. If you haven't seen it picture, a large pink and sand colored returned to flanked by colonnades all sitting next to a dreamy reflective pool. Reporter Jessica plot. Check went to check it out with a listener who had a question about some statues that seemed to face the wrong way. Let's drop in on the conversation. Cuban reduce yourself. My name is Emily staffer. And I have lived in San Francisco for nearly twenty years and palace. The fine arts is one of my favorite places in the city. I love to come down here and knit terrific people watching 'cause like you get tons of tourists like tons of different kinds of people and the Kingston yeras the comedown, weddings. Come to do photo shoots. It just is a real like everyone in San Francisco comes through. And we are here to talk about the sad. Looking ladies that top a lot of the columns here. And it looks like there's usually four of them surrounding these big concrete boxes and all the ladies are leaning towards the boxes with their heads resting on top of the boxes. They're known as the weeping women. Another funny thing is when you're walking into them their butts are just so mad. It's true. I mean, that's the other thing I kind of thought about well, I maybe they just didn't want to take the time to detail out seventy two faces. Did you get here before me? And you started counting all of them. Yeah. I tried to count. I think they're seventy two weeping ladies. Yeah. So there's a lot of them. So my question is why do all of these women have their backs turned? What's the story that you love tilling? So the story that I've heard that I really like is the designer sort of had the Greek columns and the style dictated to him and what designer likes to have creative work dictated to them. So he turned the ladies backs to signify his own we and that's the part that really got me excited. I was like anytime, you're so bored. It has to be in French signing up, and I'm kind of cynical. So it's like the spiteful nature of it that I enjoy I'm gonna tell you what I know. So the palace of fine arts was built for the nineteen fifteen Panama Pacific, international exposition. It was like a world's fair and they built tons of stunning structures, including the tower of jewels which scintillating with thousands of cut glass. Gems and most all these structures were supposed to be temporary. But Preservationists liked this one the Palestinian arts and kept it around till it needed to be rebuilt in the nineteen sixties anyway back to the beginning. So the palace of fine arts was designed by Bernard may back the inside hall held tons of impressive art and may back wanted the structures outside to remind visitors of romantic European ruins now, that's the key word. So he wanted to evoke a melancholy and reflective feel a sculptor was hired. Because may back was not a sculptor over Eller Husson, or I hope I'm saying that right? We'll Rick aller housing. How would you say that? Yeah. We'll Rick Eller who's in Hewson something like that. Hello, the German pronunciation as Ella was when he moved to America. It was.

It seemed like they were they weren't right? The pro cavenaugh people were not right out in front of the building. Like, the anti cavenaugh people were. Yeah. Yeah. They they're loud. And remember, he's the boogeyman. Right. I mean, that's the he's the boogeyman. That's that's what he is. But I think what she said there was was very was very real. We're all broken all of us have had something in our life some worse than others. And we're all broken people. Texting me, you know, you're a horrible person in. How dare you side with that woman? She's a liar. She's coached course, she's coached by the way, every defendant in the world get some sort of coaching. Yeah. Of course, this is a woman who is a what some sort of psychology, professor at Palo Alto university or college. In california. Who's now thrust into limelight? And she's got to sit in front of a bunch of people tons of cameras. And if she sits down they swarm her and take pictures like she's a rockstar. And and yeah, of course, she's going to get a little bit coaching. I have no problem with that. Will you should because the story is being made up. You reaching here. You really are. I do think something happened to this woman. I don't know if it was him. And if something happened between the two g may not remember it because it sounds like he likes to drink a little bit and party is high schools because apparently, according to the Senate, he's the only person who's ever drunk and high school and. How drunk did he or did he not get did was it a he didn't know who she was? And he tried to kiss her. And she I it became something bigger. And she took it as something again that I don't know. Or was it? Somebody completely different. Did she have a few drinks herself at fifteen as she said, she was afraid to tell her parents. And maybe just maybe. It was somebody else is that a possibility. Absolutely. Either way we're never going to know exactly what took place. We're not. But none of this was designed to find out the truth of whether or not it was him that did something to her. Or if she was just a pawn in the game, and it was all designed to stop him from. Ascending to the highest court in the land. Which would tip the courts to the right? That's what this was completely designed for nothing. More. Three two three five three eight twenty four twenty three at Chadbensonshow is your Twitter tweet at us. We're going to break down what Cavanaugh had to say. Some of it. I thought was I don't know if I'd handled the way he did. But I understand why he did it and an epic rant today. If you've not seen it. We have the best of Lindsey Graham who went apoplectic, and that is putting it kindly towards his fellow senators, and man, the Lindsay's kind of like, you know, he's just one step below Mitch McConnell and enthusiasm.

"E. d. it's morning edition on I'm Brian watt California voters consider a, measure this November that would allow local governments to adopt or expand rent control it's not clear if the city, of Palo, Alto is ready to go that. Far but the. City council passed emergency ordinance last week to create the strongest, renter protections in the city's history owners of buildings with fifty or, more units must now pay some, tenants, up to seventeen thousand dollars. If. They're addicted through no fault of their own Palo Alto mayor Liz NIST joins. Me to talk about this good morning good morning how are you all right so. What made this so urgent in Palo Alto was the dozens of families in one downtown apartment building faced. Eviction mainly because the new owners wanted to turn it back into a hotel we've seen stories like this in the bay area a lot what was different this time What was different this time is that we know a great many of the people who. Were at that location however that wasn't the only reason we pass this, the rent and the living situation in. The, bay area has become so extreme so, we looked, not only. At that particular situation but we looked at any building where they have fifty or more units and we don't know when there might be another. Building, that comes up with no cause of action but. We will. Have not only? This first. Urgency or is in place but also a long-term one in places well there's no rent control in Palo Alto not yet not yet so do I hear you saying that you're really thinking. About it because it's not been an easy thing to sell. In a lot of communities Or something similar to it we. Have about forty five percent of. Our population Palo Alto I- renters and I, know that there are some on council really feel strongly they should have more protection others are really hesitant to. Get, even close to the topic it's about half and half, on our council so this is probably the closest we have come. In a while to having any control over landlords, and that was quite a step forward for the seven who voted for, it the other night maybe assign that the tide is changing maybe there could be more tenant protections. Coming and maybe we should look at the fact that there's an election, this fall are you saying that a. Lot, of the people on the council we're, looking towards, this election. And realizing that they needed to be sensitive to rising housing costs I think that is said perfectly so when we voted on this last year And I believe the term then used was rent stabilization at that point we were a five, to four vote this time we actually. Had seven of the eight members who are, present the night for Saturday town and so I think when one is running. For office when looks at all sides of the issue and I? Think that that would indicate that maybe this more interest now in renter protection I don't believe. Long-term that's going to be interested. In rent control that's Palo Alto mayor listeners When the federal government was making. No progress on treatment for HIV AIDS people around the country protested visibly and angrily that's, a sharp contrast to what's happening with Alzheimer's a devastating disease it has no. Treatment and little public outcry it's a, contrast Sharon Begley pointed out in her reporting and writing. For stat a health and biomedical science website she joins us? From Boston good morning Sharon that morning Brian to start. Can you tell, us how widespread is Alzheimer's in America. In this. Country five point seven million people currently have it the vast majority of them are over. Age sixty five projections are that by twenty fifty they'll be fourteen million cases and it's already the. Sixth leading cause of death so in terms of suffering and mortality it is a very, serious disease with just. Untold consequences and is it a bigger problem. In America than aids now Yeah it definitely is. The amount of attention drug development etcetera for HIV aids has been a hugely impressive and that's. Why I contrasted with Alzheimer's wondered where is. The outrage and where do you think the outrage, is just to. Give you context here Brian the last drug. That was approved. For Alzheimer's was approved in two thousand and three so fifteen, years and we have had nothing. So one expert I spoke. To use, a, term that made me just, gas practically he called it therapeutic nihilism and by that he meant that? The disease, has proved so challenging to scientists. But people have almost given up but that doesn't answer the question why are people not, outraged and there you have things like the age of the patients unfortunately for. People sixty five and older there's at, least some sentiment that you know what they've had a. Good life that's the way it goes there's also a? Science Traffic I'm not sure I would say rationale but sort of an explanation and that. Is drug after drug after. Drug experimental one has failed the drug companies have spent and lost billions of, dollars trying to find something that, works for Alzheimer's patients and they're. Giving up I'm not sure? That answers the question why is there not more outrage but. At, least that's part of it I, think you report to the drug companies have basically moved on trying to stop. Alzheimer's at earlier stages what's. Wrong with doing that That is great and we all hope it works if you could. Look at that person and say wow you don't actually have a diagnosis. Yet you're on the cusp of getting. It but here's. A drug that will keep you from actually developing, Alzheimer's absolutely that would be great but you know as we said. At the top there are five and a half million people and growing who already have the disease so what we are essentially. Saying to them and we have nothing. That will help you but not, only the u because it takes so. Long to develop a drug that means that anybody who was diagnosed probably for the next ten years there'll. Be nothing for them either Reporter Sharon Begley with the health and biomedical science website stat thanks so. Much for talking to us thank you Brian you're listening.
