DoorDash cuts 1,250 jobs as deliveries ebb after pandemic

"Not long after announcing decent third quarter results, DoorDash is cutting more than 1200 jobs. The San Francisco based delivery app DoorDash is delivering pink slips, eliminating approximately 1250 corporate jobs, another ripple in a recent wave of layoffs in the tech industry. In a message to employees today, CEO Tony Shu called it a painful decision, saying the company was undersized going into the pandemic and sped up hiring to catch up with growth, but he says operating expenses grew quickly and other measures weren't going to be enough to close the gap. The company has seen record growth and reported orders jumped 27% in the third quarter, Neil Saunders with global data, says today's announcement is a recognition that the business needs to rein in costs, especially important

Marc Morano: Public Health Bureaucrats Were High on Power in 2020

"In 2020 though, the World Health Organization, which by the way, Bill Gates is the second funder behind the United States government to the World Health Organization. Their leader Tedros was picked by China, sent a delegation of people world health officials to China to investigate Chinese response. Within a matter of days, they came back and essentially said, we have seen the future. It is China. If you want to contain this virus, do exactly what China's doing. Italy followed suit and then the entire western world followed suit based on World Health Organization guidance. Anthony Fauci was even January 2020 was in an interview saying, can you imagine us shutting down San Francisco in New York like they're doing in China? It could never happen here in the U.S.. Neil Ferguson, the modeler then said, we thought it couldn't happen in the west until it did. So this was like just manna from heaven for these public health bureaucrats who had just couldn't even imagine that they could have this kind of power and sway. And then of course, Donald Trump, I still maintained that if Hillary Clinton were president, I think there would have been massive pushback, but because Trump of a conservative Republican did this emergency decree and then got duped into supporting the ten days, the slowest. We all got duped. We have to be clear. We all got duped. I never suspected when they're talking about a vaccine that there could be anything negative about that. I thought, what a great thing. How wonderful. Let's get this on the fast track. Most of us had no clue what was actually happening. And we are, it is in our national character to be nice to go along. We trust it. And we trusted, this is often what people do. But at some point you begin to wake up, you begin to look around and say, hey, wait a second. What is happening? But those of us who did speak up were crushed by the global elites. I

49ers top Saints 13-0, first to blank New Orleans since 2001

"San Francisco's defense set the tone from the opening drive, forcing New Orleans Alvin Kamara to fumble and holding the star running back to a total 13 yards rushing for the game. The mission accomplished Nick Bosa says the defense expected the saints to try to get their run game going, but shut it down. And whenever you do that, it's going to be a really good chance of making a team one dimensional. Jimmy Garoppolo through the game's only touchdown in a 13 zero victory as San Francisco became the first team to hold New Orleans scoreless in nearly 21 years.

Why Author Mark Shaw Sought the Truth in the JFK Assassination

"For folks who don't know anything about you, how did you get into this? Because anybody who's been alive in our lifetimes know that there's been tremendous controversy and confusion around certainly the death of president Kennedy, the death of Marilyn Monroe, and many people haven't even heard of Dorothy kill gallon. What brought you? What is your background that brought you to investigate these things as you have done over the years? Well, you ask about how I got into all of this and I have no idea in some ways very Quinn. President Kennedy was killed 60 years ago, you know, nearly 60 years ago or a little bit more. You know, I like everybody else. I cried my ears out. I was a Purdue university as a freshman. And yet over the years then, I bought all this material about J. Edgar Hoover saying Oswald alone. Oswald alone all of that and everything else. And then I had a real break with this because I knew Melvin Belli, who represented Jack Ruby, who shot Lee Harvey Oswald. I practiced law with him in San Francisco in the 80s. And when Belle I died, I started to look into his life and times and I found out that I could have a book there. So I wrote Melvin bell I king of the courtroom. And what I found out was the alarming, a couple things. First of all, he was very close with the mafia, one of his main clients was Mickey Cohen, the Los Angeles gangster. You're talking about but more than talking about Bella, are you talking about Marvin belli was close with the mafia? Melvin bell. Melvin Belli. Bella. Yeah. San Francisco attorney, but also he was known as a tort lawyer. He was a personal injury lawyer. How in the world I asked myself, I mean, you're a curious guy. How did he become Jack Ruby's attorney? So I started looking into that and what I found out was that actually he was a hired by those who wanted to silence Jack Ruby for his participation in the killing of Oswald and the JFK assassination.

The Left Claims the Right Is Responsible for the Colorado Shooting

"The comment here on the article about how Republicans are ultimately responsible for the horror in Colorado Springs at a gay club where this lunatic and if you threaten to blow up your mother a year before, I am proud of Tucker Carlson for naming the DA. Let's get the guy's name. I don't remember the name. Naming the DA involved here. A guy, the police are called, he's threatening to murder his mother and they throw away the whole thing so how do you as a clean record and can then buy a gun? Okay, just for the record. So the sky writes here that the great irony here is that grooming is what the religious right does. Children are indoctrinated into religious beliefs from an early age by adults who wish to control the very thoughts. This is the view of religious people that they have. But it isn't an intellectual dishonesty here. I'm just curious if this guy has, if Joe and San Francisco has a child, he does not, what is the word that he uses? Indoctrinate. He doesn't indoctrinate his children into leftist beliefs? As I said, if his child came home and said, hey dad, if he has a child, hey, dad, I really think that Donald Trump has better answers for the country. Make America great again, dad. And he'll go, you know, I am really proud of you, darling. You grew up to be a kid within independent thinking. I in no way want to indoctrinate you with left wing thought.

San Francisco Will Give Free Money to Transgenders

"San Francisco's transgender community will receive taxpayer money from the city's newest guaranteed income program mayor London breed announced Wednesday. The guaranteed income for trans people program gift, they are great. No. You got to give credit where it is due. Acronyms, they have a genius for acronyms on the left. Gift guaranteed income for trans people. It certainly is a gift. Uses taxpayer dollars to provide low income transgender San franciscans, a $1200 monthly stipend for up to 18 months to quote, help address financial and security within trans communities. We know that our trans communities experience much higher rates of poverty and discrimination breed said in a statement. So this program will target support to lift individuals in this community up. Why will it only be for 18 months? What happens after that? Extend it for another 18. Of course they'll extend it. San Francisco's other guaranteed ink. By the way, whatever you pay for, you get more of. Just a little law of life.

"The real point is this is a quick one. You're talking about the 25 kid depth down to California that basically were attacked and maimed. And yep. The perpetrator was released. But yet, the attacker on Paul Pelosi, he's still in jail. Man, I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy of the California injustice system. That's a great point. I didn't really think about that, Greg, but you're right. That guy is still in jail, and I think it's important for us to use the word alleged attack because clearly we don't have all the facts. And something is not quite adding up. They're in the Pelosi mansion in the Tony section of San Francisco, but to your point, I mean, you're right there is, I mean, look at what's happening right now in Washington, D.C.. How many American citizens have been locked up since January 6th? No trial. You're right. The Pelosi one, that is alleged. But this guy that did this thing down. Oh, he did it. California. There's no alleging on that one. That's right. And in my opinion, it should be no trial, no report to file, just he should have been shot on the spot. And it's just not there's nothing there's nothing. There's nothing to think about on that one, but you know, for the DA down there to drag it out and let the guy go, it just shows you just what we're up against.

"Well, well, Nancy Pelosi has stepped down, I heard her talk, or at least part of the talk, the honor she had to represent the people of San Francisco, here's a question. Meant completely seriously. Name one way in which the people of San Francisco have benefited. From her supreme blee powerful position in Washington, D.C.. Are the citizens of San Francisco safer. Are there more or fewer stores open did more people move in or more people move out? Are there more homeless or fewer homeless? Than when she started. Is there more free speech in America? Or less free speech entirely thanks to her party.

NBC News Suspends Reporter for Retracted Paul Pelosi Story

"News, they suspended a journalist for reporting that there were some new details, and that Paul Pelosi was the one who actually opened the door for the police, but did not try to escape, did not declare an emergency, and actually walked away from the police and walked back to the man they said, was his attacker the man accused of hitting him on the skull with a hammer. Now look, we've been pretty open about this. We don't think anybody deserves to be hit on the head with a hammer. They said he had a fractured skull and these horrific horrific injuries, and yet he was released from the hospital within just a day or two of being admitted. And you wonder, okay, well, I mean, the guys in his 80s and he's got a fractured skull, allegedly, and all of these other injuries allegedly, so why would they let him get out of the hospital so quickly? That didn't make any sense to me. But anyway, that's not part of the reporting here. So now, NBC News is in the process of scrubbing from every one of their websites any information that was reported about Pelosi that they now consider to be, I don't know, inappropriate. They haven't said it's factually inaccurate, and here's the issue. The local NBC station reported this information. There are two different versions of what happened. Now, one version indicates that two police officers opened the door of the home, but the San Francisco district attorney's office reported that it was mister Pelosi who opened the door with his left hand. So it's not like there's some sort of, I mean, they're pretty specific here.

"Have a list. This is a freshly updated list of Republican senators who are supporting this, and all of these folks, by the way, were just like Barack Obama and one of them in particular was staunchly opposed to same sex marriage. That would be Mitt Romney of Utah, who now supports the bill, also Tom tillis of North Carolina, rob Portman of Ohio and Susan Collins of Maine, a Lisa Murkowski is hinting that she will support this along with senators, let's see here. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa, telling Business Insider that she was keeping an open mind about the bill. So you could have more Republican senators joining the Democrats pastor. Yes, that's a concern. And I always, as a pastor, I always ask myself, what's the faith base of the individual making that vote, what's going on at their home church? Because it usually influences them. And then the second thing is who are their donors. And there's a lot of money that comes from this crowd. What they're all saying is that this was passed at the Supreme Court level. We're just agreeing with the Supreme Court. But that's not exactly as I understand it true. This is an opportunity for them to be what our founders intended. It checks and balances in how far this law is codified and how much of a nuisance it becomes to the faith community. And so at the very least, they need to consider language in the in this that excludes religious organizations and I've yet to hear about that. Well,

And when I called tied, I got voicemails. And I left a voicemail and for Tom till I asked him why he was explaining why he was supporting that. That's going to declare war on people of faith. You know, he and I are about to stay in age and I also ask him if he could give me one biblical verse and the holy Bible old test of a New Testament that condones marriage between people of the same sex. Todd, it's not just this issue with pillows or burr, going back a year ago when it was extending the debt limit and then the infrastructure Bill, it was the gun Bill earlier this year. These guys have voted to write lock stock and barrel with Joe Biden. And when they vote that way Todd and you call them up, all you get is the voicemail and they will not call you back.

And we noticed today that we now have a pronoun option for all of our clients. So we work with animals. So the owners of these animals, I guess, now have the option to tell us what they want to be called or how they want to be addressed, and we can select from a list, the issue is the list is so long. We don't even know how to pronounce a lot of these programs. It's hard. I just went through the list. I'm sure I mispronounced a number of this 97 new gender options now. Well, now a lot of our employees, we can choose our own pronouns on our own accounts for our own pets. And a lot of our employees have decided to go with yo because we all just want to be able to yell yo at everyone around the hospital, excuse me, my workplace. And just refer to each other as yo and get by with it. This is unbelievable amber. Did you ever imagine we would live in a time where there would be this sort of pronoun confusion across the nation? No, no, and I asked my hospital manager what some of these myths and we tried to Google it and the answer that she got on Google in all the jargon was that it is healthy to be confused about your gender and your orientation. And I guess my response to that is Google says it's healthy to be confused, but what I've always read is that the devil is the author of all confusions. So where does that photo? All right

The 12 Republican Traitors Who Supported 'Respect for Marriage Act'

"Yesterday about this respect for marriage act, and in a nutshell, this is going to put a target on every single church Christian school, Christian business owner in America. You're a nonprofit. They're going to yank your tax exempt status. That's what's going to happen with this. So they had to pass this thing. There was a major hurdle they had to pass, and they were able to do it last night. 12 Senate Republicans joined Democrats. To push through this plan to codify gay marriage. And again, this is not about gay marriage. This is about not protecting religious liberty. And there's a very good chance if this thing gets passed and it looks like it'll be passed with the entire Senate momentarily, and then it goes back to the house. And the house is going to pass it, and Biden's going to sign this into law. And then you will get a knock on the front door of your church from the Internal Revenue Service. That's what this is all about. So here are the 12 senators who joined the Democrats and I'm going to share these names, then you need to call these senators and you need to give them the what for. And then I want you to call us back and tell us what they said. But these are the senators who, by the way, previously were opposed to gay marriage to get elected, but now that they're in office, all of a sudden they've had a change of heart. So here they are.

"Big news yesterday despite the niners committing to Trey Lance Jimmy Garoppolo is staying in San Francisco. And yesterday, restructured his deal that he'll make a base salary of 6 and a half $1 million. Now he can make upwards to 14 $15 million this year with bonuses, and there is a no trade clause for the upcoming season. The deal at first glance may make a lot of sense for a team that has limited cap space or maybe it doesn't. Because now they do have cap space, restructured deal and you've got the most expensive backup quarterback, the most experienced backup quarterback in the NFL. You have an elite quarterback there, but Jimmy Garoppolo looking over Trey Lance's shoulder. But you start to look at the recent history with the NFL with backup quarterbacks. Nick Foles with the eagles in 2018. Kurt Warner with the rams in 1999, backup quarterbacks won the Super Bowl. I don't know if Trey Lance is ready. I've been saying all along, I thought if the niners could keep Jimmy Garoppolo to keep him because I don't think Trey Lance is ready right now. Doesn't mean he won't be, but if you keep Garoppolo, this is a team that can win the Super Bowl now. They're that good. But if you can get Jimmy Garoppolo at a lesser salary and I'm going to guess you're probably going to have the opportunity to have a trade partner during the season if somebody gets hurt. Here's a couple of things that I'm curious about. Jimmy Garoppolo has not worked out with the team. He's not in meetings. He hasn't been involved. He's like a strange from the team. Now does he come back today? It's like a welcome back, Jimmy banner out front. He's got a parking spot, how weird is that, your Trey lands, you go into the quarterback being, hey, Jimmy, where are you been? Trying to get traded. Well, come on back in. You can listen as trace the starter now. But I don't know if you're Jimmy Garoppolo, is this the best. I don't know if he's healthy enough right now to even play football. Because he had the shoulder surgery. So let's just

"The philosopher Edmund Burke once said to love our country our country ought to be lovely. I think what he meant by that is that we do love our country in part because it's ours. But we should also love our country because it makes possible for us. The good life. It offers us opportunity. It offers us a chance to make a better life for ourselves and for our children. Now, I have a cousin in India. Well, he's no longer in India, but he grew up in India along with me, my first cousin, his name is Rahul. And one of his phrases was, I hate India. And the rest of us would look at him like, what are you talking about? Well of course, India is all we knew. But his point is it's exhausting to live in India. He goes everything is difficult. He always having to pay money under the table, just getting through the days like tiring. And I do think a lot of us in that generation of the 1960s, 70s. You know, we would identify with that sentiment. Well, America has for me and for so many other immigrants been the opposite. It's not exhausting to live in America. In fact, it's kind of exhilarating. Why? Because there are chances all the time to better yourself to better your life to learn to explore new things. And even if you fall down, maybe even if you fail, even if you go bankrupt, you can pick up and start again, which is not easy to do in other places. So the American Dream and again, despite Biden, in many respects it's still alive, but it is getting choked off. It is getting stunted in places like New York and San Francisco, basically in democratic rhyme cities. Now I want to turn the experience of kind of a fellow Indian who came to America as I did and came to California as I once did. Looking for opportunity. This is a high-tech guy. And I'm going to refer to him because it's interesting sometimes to go from data to lived experience. What is it actually like for someone to come to California, and this guy's name is Hari ragava, he's kind of software guy. And he comes to California, he says, because of the following things, quote. A fantastic universities incredible natural beauty, plenty of agricultural land nearby, wonderful weather, renewable energy sources and a critical mass of people who are both rule breakers and opportunity seekers. So these are sort of, he calls it sort of the modern gold rush. This is why people came to California. But he's been there and he's been successful there to a point, but he is now exhausted and he's getting out of there. And he doesn't say where he's going, but he does say why he's leaving. He makes this striking statement. He says San Francisco today is a symbol of decline. I think it's more inconvenient to live in San Francisco or Oakland than when I lived in Chennai or Bombay growing up. That's quite a for someone like me, kind of a startling statement because what he's really saying is that places like California are becoming third world eyes. Third world is in the sort of worst sense of that term. Now, he says a year ago, I was smirking at the people moving out of the Bay Area. He goes, I thought, why are they going? What's better than here? But he goes these come to see that the American Dream is no longer thriving in the Bay Area, and he goes on to say exactly why. Number one, he goes, it's hard to feel safe. He goes on the last 7 years, my wife and I have experienced four home break ins, one car break in multiple other thefts and he goes on to say that every one of his female friends in San Francisco has either been accosted or assaulted. Typically by a homeless guy, but in some respect or the other. And he goes of all these break ins, he goes, I only reported one. Why? Because quote, what's the point? They don't do anything about it. Number two, he goes, there is a systematic animus against business, particularly small business in California. And so you're trying to do something you're trying to get it done and they make you into the bad guy. They block you in all kinds of ways and then they're hostile. They're actively hostile to entrepreneurship. He says they gifted programs and fields like math and science are being eliminated in schools. Entrepreneurs like Elon Musk are literally being chased out of California. He goes quote privilege and success. Instead of something to be mindful of and thoughtful about has become something to be ashamed of. In fact, he says, if you build a successful company, the attitude of the California democratic bureaucracy is this, they say, a, you're exploiting the region, exploding the region, and B, you're not paying enough taxes even though the entrepreneurs in San Francisco are paying the highest tax rates in the whole country. He then goes on to say that the bureaucracy and animus toward the citizens on the part of the people who run the city. Remember San Francisco has California is kind of a one party state. So they don't have to. There's no real competition so they don't really care. There's no profit motives. They don't really care on that score either. And he goes over time, the way you down, he goes, you fight them, you think I'll get around them, but over time you become innervated, you become tired and you then say, listen, this is toxic. Why do I need more toxicity in my life? It's time for me just to get the heck out of there. Then he goes on to talk about. Merit achievement and success or becoming a lost cause. Wow. In California, suddenly merit is now seen as a bad thing, Meredith's racist. And so success is diminished. He's talking about the social contract and he says, quote, there's a social contract between government and citizens. We pay taxes and abide by the law, and the government provides social services and governs by the will of the people. So this is a very moderate guy. He's not even all that political. He's basically saying I'm keeping my end of the deal, and you're not. And so at some point he's saying, look, I can stay and I can stay and I can hang in there, hoping that things will get better, but sometimes hope itself becomes a casualty. And then there's no alternative, but to say I came for the dream, there are no more dreams here to be found. I need to go elsewhere to search for.

"That's the reason. There's no better reason. Why people vote to ruin their own cities. It's a phenomenon. Back in a moment, the Dennis prager show. Turn all of the lights on over. Hi, everybody. It's an amazing question that I have posed here at this opening hour of the show. A lot of people vote to ruin their cities when they vote Democrat they do that. The report from San Francisco is astonishing, and people will still vote Democrat. It's almost unbelievable. How the stores are closing en masse in. San Francisco. And let's see, target now, you know, that's the one. Target. Iconic Target Store in mission street to close amid shoplifting, tidal wave. And people will still vote Democrat. People will still vote for people like gascon and other district attorneys who believe that you don't prosecute somebody if they stole $900 worth. Wow. Yep. Out of ruin your own life. Your own city. Kevin and San Francisco says Republicans don't even put their name out, so he has stuck to vote for some communist or hippie. That's an interesting question. I'd like to like to pursue that. If that's the case, Republicans not even putting out a nominee. Martha in Los Angeles her best friend did not know what woke meant. It's an interesting point. They don't know they watch NPR and PBS. It's a very good point, Martha. They don't know. Tom and St. John's Indiana there's no choice for people in Chicago, no Republicans to vote for. Would it make any difference is the question. I don't know the answer to that question, but that is, obviously, a question to be asked. Darrell in Anaheim, California people vote Democrat because they are brainwashed. Democrats will give them what they want. That's a good point. In other words, better to have stores shut down if I am given more benefits. I think there's truth to that. It's really it's the antithesis of what this country has stood for. That's why we have to fight everybody. I fight every day, so should you. It's a big deal. Anyway, go now to my website, Dennis prager dot com click on the ABF banner..

"And i haven't gotten the the all the details on why she chose san francisco But it's like it's it's on a former military base and and i assuming that the proximity to lucasfilm has something to do with it It's just me. Let's get into that rich. Says it's a big story. Yes a kyle. I know you know some of the details to correct me if i go astray. But there is a couple. That's dating almost engaged. Decided going across country trip in a van together and what's happening now is the guy showed backup home without the girl in the girl is missing in. The guy won't talk to his family's protecting him but somewhere in the last couple of days. They've found police. Body cam footage of of a fight kinda happening between the two of them where she's pushing him and he's pushing her in the police. Break up the fight but they don't see any reason to arrest them they say. Why don't you guys cool off. So she spent the night in a hotel somewhere along this journey in utah and he spent the night in the van. And that's the last anybody's heard of in this. This girl's family is going crazy. You gotta talk to the authorities. You you have to let us know what happened. So it's all the big mystery but it's been sort of taken over the the news as of late. yeah. I do think they actually were engaged. Her name's gabby petito. I think that we pronounce her last name. But john j. You brought this up like three days ago your skin a lot of legs. A lot of people are interested in this because it's so suspicious like it's so suspect the fact that they go on this trip the cops have to come like the fight was bad enough that the cops were called on whatever this domestic dispute was between them but he you know essentially they had told the cops were engaged. We really love each other. We don't wanna press charges. We don't whatever and that's why the cops had said okay. Just spend the night apart. You need obviously some breathing room because you're traveling this little tiny van across the country together but the fact that she texted her mom. I think the last text she or her mom got was just no service in yosemite and her mom doesn't think that that text was actually written by her mom was written by possibly the fiancee. Who is now literally like holing up and not cooperating with the cops at all so she has an even answered the questions like well. We spent the night apart and then we just decided we'd want to talk so i don't know what's up now when freshman because the lack of information is really really impeding on their investigation. They're just trying to find this girl and she's been gone now. I think for what maybe eleven days. Something like that I saw on the news this morning saying like i. I don't really care if he needs to rest or if he's got emotions like let's let's find my daughter and get her safe if if that's what's going on and then we can work on whatever you guys thought about. But he how do you not. How do you have the ability to just say no. thanks. I don't wanna help when you're the main suspect. I mean eventually. They're gonna they're gonna have to make him talk like they're going to have to subpoena him or do something to kind of get him to start talking..

The people that live there now have a giant tarp over it because people were coming into the yard. They were trying to steal things and they were like okay. No no more. This is just it just wide open. And i found out on the trip that it's like the another reason is because they're called the painted ladies and it's the architecture of san francisco and blah blah blah but areas air for the fucking whole house. Okay crowded would you have been like blown away that you were at the full house. If it wasn't crowded if there's nobody but you guys there you would have. It would have been the by. Yeah i would have been. I would have probably valued that time more when it was just nobody here to see the full tourist attraction. I was at alcatraz influencers. Thank goodness why. Why is that. The one comment. I wouldn't go dizzy. Land eighty thousand influence. It sounds like just fans the full house that were. They're just like you. I mean it was sold for three or four five point. Three five million. Yeah it's gorgeous. I'm we'll have pictures. It's really pretty the it doesn't look like the full house house on the inside. Now it does not use bush us like why would they care what happens on the inside of the house in that neighborhood. I don't know. I mean it's just i guess it's just like if you have an hoa at your home camping there certain. Yeah there's certain things you just can't cantu city ordinance ordinance. Well shame on the people that when they first started the sitcom why they picked. That house should have picked a better house. They should have bought it right away. Just made it in that. Yeah so where else did you go on your vacation. We went to a baseball game. We went to chinatown in. This is another thing and this was like kind of the theme for certain parts of this trip was like. Is it really worth the hype. The things that. I didn't think we're going to be worth it. We're awesome then the things that i was like super excited about were like. Oh it's fine but we so we went to chinatown. I have never had dim sum. And i was like gimme dim. Some of that them some. Yeah and so we go in. There's huge ass lines at two of these different places in my wife's looking and she's making sure that we're going to the exact ones that we need to go to and so you go in. We waited for forty five minutes to get this food and dim. Some kind of. I guess you could describe it. It's like appetizers right. I never had it. Not that soup dumpling. Thing no but they kinda come around. Pick it off the plate right and sometimes you don't know what it is. Yeah well we didn't know what any of it was but you go in and they're super rude to you and i guess that's a thing but i'm like i. This is not what i want for my restaurant experience and we go in and you like you pick things to order. And they're like what else. What else what else. What else and so like. I'm sweating because it's hot outside and because unlike you're yelling at me 'cause i'm trying to order i'm trying to give you money for food and we get it. There's no place to sit so it's like okay. Well we'll i guess we'll walk this back. The hotel i dunno we've got two giant containers spent thirty dollars. Each each item was like three dollars a piece. So we got all this stuff and we go and we ended up having. We're walking back to the hotel and we're just like well..

"Pieces in the house in case. You can't leave the house. So what came out of code for us that we learned as we now have a piece of our work that we offer which is called a safety hit and we deliver actually over a hundred since last july. I'm really excited about that. And those kids have been so helpful. It is a combination of earthquake safety. Kobe prevention and preparedness in addition to giving people the tools to have like a house emergency plan in the event. They can't leave or the exit very quickly. We've been able to pivot in add safety kids into our regular year round programming in. It's been received very well so the pandemic obviously taught us a lot a shutdown our ration- for ninety days but really what emerged from that for us was discovering that he's wallace calls. Were vital during this time for our neighbors were sheltered in place and that this emerging nuclear merging service that happens safety kids are so beneficial that now it has become a regular part of our work we were able to softly kind of open up our operations in mid july and since that time we've been slowly but surely getting up to our normal level of operation of one hundred percent and we actually have our bill days scheduled for the end of july in for the end of september. So we're almost there but kind of moving along but if call taught us anything. I believe it's taught us and particularly our organization that we plan in wants to be more helpful in the area of preparedness for our viewers especially vulnerable ones. How is the rebuilt together. San francisco's team your partners. Your volunteers are you now. Working in the reopening component of pandemic. Yeah so a lot of information has come out from local regional kind of cdc guidelines. We have just begun allowing volunteers to come back in volunteer with us. On a regular basis all volunteers complete applications they are signing agreements than in those agreements intel. Hauer contact tracing. Were still protecting ourselves with masks. Gloves sanitizer in social distancing. We have just begun to reach that. Volunteers are office like many offices. Back in march have gone remote. We are still technically remote now with the planned reopening sometime in october. We wanna be back into the office part time and we will continue to kind of monitor san francisco right now. I believe is at herd immunity or pretty close to hurt immunity. So we're going to continue to monitor and follow the local guidelines in terms of reopening but we are accepting volunteers. The are having our bill days in. We expect to have regular in office hours sometime in october. Over thirty years of operation. Would you feel spend the biggest impact on separatists. Go in it. Seniors especially in our community members disabilities. Some of our biggest value adds not been with the organization or almost close to two years. From what i gathered from the history and talking to people and the biggest value add that we offer. And that we've been able to give. San francisco is to ensure that low income families elderly and the disabled populations that they can stay in their home. That something like a plumbing issue or needing to replace a door or meetings a habit chairlift doesn't stop them from being able to stay in their home. It is preserving housing in its best form in. It's also a form of anti displacement. There is no secret that there is a lot of gentrification happening and there are measures around anti displacement of longtime san franciscans and we feel that our work helps to preserve those face and they're being and they're belonging in san francisco. There's also another piece. I think that's really important especially targeted to our disabled and elderly population around aging in place. And what that really means is just because you get older just because you need a little more support. You should not have to leave. Your home in. Our organization is dedicated to making sure that those particular populations don't have to leave their home because either they age or need additional support to get around the hall. Those couple of areas are very important to us. I believe that's really being value. Add for the city. So how can our audience members support rebuilding together. San francisco can now sounds like volunteer donate sponsor absolutely they can go onto our website. Www dot rebuilding together at dot or we are accepting volunteers skilled and unskilled. So even if you've never even hammered something in your own home you're welcome to volunteer. Were best companies can sponsor events or hosts of team building activity rebound organization. We offer that you around. People in the local community can donate obviously dollars. Financial contributions go a long way and follow us on social media. We have facebook account. Our social media handles are listed on our website in baking. Continue to support us in that way and get the word out. But i highly suggest volunteering. A highly suggest donating to our organization in their companies out there looking for a great outdoor team building activity. We have sponsor packages for team building activities for local companies as well. Thank you and would you please share with the audience. One of your favorite moments of working at rebuilding together separate cisco yes. I have very fond memory a little less than a year old rebuilding together. San francisco had the opportunity to partner with five keys. Which isn't organization out of san francisco and our volunteers renovated six apartments on treasure island. That were prepared. For formerly incarcerated women that have served twenty years plus coming out of prison and we prepared six apartment units with construction upgrades in safety upgrades for the women and not my favorite story by far just because the impact of our work that had on the women coming to a clean ready face that they could restart their lives in his support to the community. Really resonated with me because when you come out of prison you come from a sale in you. Don't realize the big difference until you come out so a plea apart or women to go from prison to a nice apartment was a really special moment for me. That's definitely something. I'll never never forget it. Treasure island is beautiful. Of course that the unions match that beauty out there in the women were so happy warning rosie in particular so elated so happy ready to restart her life and i know that our work and that unit being prepared will support her in her journey and the rest of her life. Thank you a great story and once again back down to housing. I absolutely so final question. What would you say were some of the positive things that could come out of the pandemic to support the increase in housing and wraparound services.

I are nonprofits and then on small businesses in the san francisco bay area. We like you had no idea how long the pandemic would go on. And what. The health and economic impact would be in our community with vaccinations increasing in nineteen cases and deaths decreasing. Were now moving into the summer of twenty twenty one with the reopening of the economy and all of the uncertainty of our ever indoor and outdoor vaccinated and unvaccinated protocols and the politics that will drive how we all come back together as a unified or fractured community. We will continue to shine a spotlight on the nonprofits and small businesses that make up the fabric of our community along with the founders and staff who are struggling to deal with the impact of the kobe.

Just a quick overview of rebuilding together san francisco. And then some of your programs thank you again. Happy be here. I am with an organization called rebuilding together. San francisco and our mission in the community is to repair homes. Revitalize communities and rebuild lives. And what that looks like on a daily basis is supporting. Low income homeowners primarily low income families just able population in also the elderly population with doing a minor construction repairs in their home. So that those families in books can stay in their home. we also have national rebuilding month. Which takes place in april where we simultaneously work on fifteen to twenty homes on a given day. It is the work saturday in april where we are doing construction repairs in how we do that. Is we mobilize our volunteer network over two hundred skilled passionate construction. Volunteers contractors that are passionate about the community that are doing upgrades in ada. Modifications for families in san francisco. We also have a she bills program or women who are in the trades interested in connecting with women in the trades. Are she builds. Program focuses on safe in healthy housing primarily four female led households in for a facilities that are centered around women in children so again we're focusing on three areas mainly safe in healthy housing refocusing on eighty eight modifications in. We're focusing on women in households. That are needing support. Took preserve their home in moving forward in their lives in mahogany. So much of what you do again is in person you're in people's homes etc how has coveted eighteen impacted your operations and what did you and your team do. And of course our you and your teams now starting to come back out of our pandemic into the magical reopening that everything is going to be better. I call what we're in right now. The new normal. And we're still figuring that out however back in march win whole country's shutdown. I remember that daylight yesterday. Our whole operation shutdown fully. For about ninety days we were in the middle of safety modifications in ada upgrades we were not able to hold our national rebuilding the fourth saturday in april. Everything was cancelled. Everything kind of just shut down. And we were not able to be in homes during that ninety day period before we got a soft green light to open from the san francisco public health department. We made a strong pivot. The things that we focused on were chippings. We were still authorized to do emergency repairs. They'll still really focused on making sure people had hot water and he and that their doors exits were safe to enter into exit. We were able to do those three things upon emergency when our neighbors will call us or fill out a new application. The other piece that we did besides focusing on emergency repairs is me began. Doing wellness calls. Our organization is been in san francisco going on thirty three years so we served over five to six hundred families and we're still in contact with many of them. We have their information and we were able to do wellness calls now. Wellness calls and tells one just doing a call and fade. Hello how're you doing. Do you need to be connected to resources dean. Have any emergencies in your home that we can support you way. We did a great job with partnering with organizations like the department of aging deepening our partnership with the san francisco department of health. So a we were part of that san francisco hub up connecting people different resources whether it was grocery delivery medical or i would say pharmacy deliveries in also supporting with emergency repairs. Walnuts call turned into a big part of our work and then as kind of the ninety days was approaching more like mid july. We discovered that many of our vulnerable communities were hit pretty hard and the number one thing we've learned from that is he will. Everyone should be equipped in the event of an emergency. Kobe just kind of arrived in happened to us. We get to choose it in one of the things we learned from that was all of our neighbors need to be prepared that means having a household emergency plan having things in the house.

"I think we're all going to be smelling a lot of campfires in our homes away. The summer's going. So to that point greg. How can folks you know. If they've got some equipment they want to donate or they wanna make a donation to the mash or they wanna participate in the centro emergency mesh. How can they do that. San francisco whereas emergency mesh is also a nonprofit accept donations both of equipment and in kind donations and monetary donations and through those are tax deductible. I would say the cost of equipment for building up. This capability is really negligible. it's not a barrier. The biggest barrier is sites having places to put thing buildings towers really anywhere right the benefit of it being the way it is. it doesn't require. Licensed infrastructure doesn't require a contractor to come out and run power lines. It's all low voltage is either. It's what you would use in your house. Which i think has made it attractive to some people right. It's not any more sophisticated than hooking up a cable modem but once it's there even if you don't use it yourself it's providing a service to the community that doesn't exist today right so next time you know. The city has a group called neurotic neighbor. Emergency response team. That is a group that could benefit from this capability other cities around the bay area. Have somewhere group core and certain in all these things again today they constrain themselves to to a voice radio and what we're saying. Hey next time you need to read a list. Don't read it over the radio. Senator mel right. Don't describe the building collapsed. Take a picture of it. Sent a picture make a phone call you know other capabilities looking at adding or things like a wildfire spotting cameras remote telemetry and air quality sensors things like that mobile deployable field kits all of those things so the best way to participate..

Join our mailing list. There's tons of people there to ask questions. Guide you along your way greek. Could you share with the audience. One of your favorite stories. If you will or moments of participating in the radio club or your work inside of the regency disaster indications a moment that i realized we can really change the community. Was we have a project we're working on. I haven't really told this story other than in person. And i've been wanting to sort of get it on the record. Because it's what precipitated this project so separately from the radio club in separately from acs there's a project we've stood up. Call the san francisco. Wireless emergency mesh. It's primarily based in amateur radio so it fits into both of those buckets but a couple years ago. I was going to bed. And i made the mistake of looking at my phone. One more time before. I went to bed. And i saw someone post saying that they were evacuating napa. And just a profound thing to hear it'd be like they're evacuating daly. City am i what i could imagine the scale that that's weird. What's going on in napa right. Say that to you now. You'd be like what's going on in napa right. We don't know what's going on. And i looked through social media a little bit more so in the city in san francisco here said my house. Smells like a campfire and mike. That's weird. I don't smell anything up to go to the bathroom. Walk into the hallway house and might my house smells like. Is there bonfire in my backyard. And that was the first time..

"Thanks out me. I love the san francisco. Radio club of old time radio person myself. I never got into ham per se. But i would love if you could just provide the audience. A little background on the san francisco radio club which is over one hundred years old now. Then you're working inside of the receipt disaster medications you've got emergency mesh wifi that you're doing as well. Yeah absolutely. i'll start with the radio club. So the san francisco radio club is over a hundred years old. Ironically pre date the existence of there being any idea of nonprofit within the federal irs. That complicates things a little bit. So what we provide is a community for folks who are interested in communications overall while the club itself is primarily focused on amateur radio ham radio sort of the pillars of that hobby. We certainly welcome anyone interested in communications radio communication science education emergency and disaster response and public service. That might stem from that. We have periodic club meetings and we have a variety of topics that we cover in those club meetings. We have radio systems that amateurs interested folks can use to communicate with each other..

We brought the garage emptied the garage and then nothing right in. For good reason we hunkered down. We sheltered in place. We didn't go anywhere. Didn't do anything and hopefully that will have saved more people in save the economy as well but we did the thing we needed to do. We're getting through it. I am reluctant to say we're through it or getting through it. We know what to do now but looking back like of the things we know how to do of the things we've learned over the last year.
