The U.S. Has A History Of Linking Disease With Race And Ethnicity

"Okay. So today we're talking about the suspicion and harassment of asians and asian americans as the krona virus spreads and this kind of fear actually has a long history in the united states right gene a very long history and actually what we learned from. Eric lee is that the seeds of this discourse of china and asia being unsanitary and crowded those seeds were planted long before chinese immigration to the us the teeming hordes of millions living in health and then as americans who travel to china and then came back to the united states. They spread those ideas. Unfortunate the own brand for the us low so right in the mid eighteen hundreds you have the first waves of chinese immigrants coming over to find fortune in the california gold rush and they also become a source of cheap labor working as farmhands building railroads etc and eventually this becomes a source of tension. Exactly so when the domestic economy takes a downturn different immigrant groups start competing for these previously undesirable jobs and you start seeing harassment even massacres of chinese workers but erica says that the idea of chinese immigrants being dirty and disease. That's still with us. We know from the very beginning As americans in general are starting to debate the so-called problem of chinese immigration. They are explicitly tying china chinese people chinese spaces with disease and contagion. Historians have shown that the rhetoric is about chinatown as plague spots as pools of laboratories of infection. Erica says that way back. In the late nineteenth century we really started to see specific policies that reflect this thinking around chinese as a threat to public. Oh okay give me an example of that. So erica told us about quarantine that happened in one thousand nine hundred in san francisco when the discovery bluebonnets plague in chinatown Bannock plague that's a potential deadly bacterial. Disease the black death right. People believe rats. Broad across the pacific steamship was unlikely. Source of the disease. Erica says san francisco officials at the time. Saw the chinese immigrants as vermin infested. So all of chinatown was placed under quarantine. And there were these periodic. Campaigns to quote disinfect chinatown flooding basements in that district with acid washing the walls with lie tearing down old buildings that rhetoric by the way erica says has been applied to a lot of immigrant groups throughout history but there is a particular way in which it has been racialized with chinese chinese as dog eaters as eaters of weird and strange animals including rats and mice and that they if they are eating and consuming rats that are known to spread disease than chinese people as a race are also carriers of disease so what happened then was. San francisco's quarantine. So the plague became racialized blamed on a group of people. The city ordered an immediate quarantine of chinatown with orders to remove all whites from the affected area so so white. Residents of san francisco were ordered to leave chinatown but chinese people could not. It's such an intense thing to know and accept this history and realize it's been with us for a really long time. It's been with us. And we haven't really grappled with all of this of course is happening against the backdrop of the chinese exclusion act which was passed in eighteen. Eighty two and it prevented chinese laborers from entering the united states. Which this time of heightened anti-chinese rhetoric and sentiment that law would actually mark the first time the u. has banned the immigration of an entire ethnic group. So when you and your co hosts shreen. Marcel marashi spoke to eric harley. Eric told you a very personal story about her grandfather. And what happened to him when he immigrated to the us and it's really relevant to what we're talking about today so erica's grandfather came to the us through angel island right angel island. It's the ellis island of the west coast. It was in san francisco bay and there was this whole special system of scrutiny for chinese immigrants in particular so erica's grandfather like so. Many chinese immigrants angel island was pulled aside and inspected separately from other asian immigrants because people believe that chinese immigrants were carriers of disease. What a way to come into a country and she said that her grandfather never told her that story directly but she was interested in it and because she's historian she actually took the records of her grandparents interogations and specifically. She found her grandfather's medical exam from angel. It was it was nothing like anything. I've read before. Immigration officials ordered my grandfather to be subjected to the most invasive medical exam that i've seen in hundreds of these records so they had the medical doctor at angel island examined him for for diseases but also to measure every aspect of his body. His teeth his his genitals his. You know it's a his height to determine what age he was to determine weather his claim of being seventeen when he was immigrating was actually true and they included just all of these detailed notes in a record and it was. It was quite shocking to read. That's really just I mean i hear the story. And i think it's important at a time like this to hear stories like this so We've been talking specifically about chinese immigration but as you mentioned earlier this history of public health and hygiene efforts and how it gets mixed up with race and ethnicity. It's also happened to other immigrant. Groups right i mean. This is something that erica talks about a lot in her book which is of course about xenophobia in the united states but it wasn't just chinese immigrants who were being targeted in this way. I mean if you look at what was happening around the same time on the southern border mexican immigrants. The us were being treated very similarly. This is one of the ways in which to phobia works. It's it uses an already existing playbook certain immigrants are are threats there there threats because they bring crime also because they take away jobs but also because they they are starting genetically carriers of disease. And surprise american policymakers setup immigration procedures for mexicans. That looked a lot like what was happening to the chinese. On the west coast and when mexican immigrants arrived across the border they were routinely subjected to invasive humiliating and harmful disinfecting baths using pesticides to route out laos but also to cleanse mexican people's their clothing and their baggage before entering the united states. I mean just the fact that mexicans were seen as carrying disease in the same way that chinese were and that this pattern is repeated. Is really interesting. This is much harsher. Then what happened at ellis island where european immigrants certainly faced scrutiny. But the the medical exams were known as six second physicals and chinese people in particular. Still carry around that stigma. And we're seeing that procession playoff when it comes to corona virus. Absolutely i you know. We're exile eighty and fear out there right now about getting sick. That is getting tangled up in this legacy and you know. I'm picturing who are listening to this and they're thinking yes. This history is real. I know this sounds really bad. But i'm just worried about eating at a chinese restaurant gene and emily just buried and i i just. I'm worried about sitting next to someone who is asian. what do i do. That's not how disease works. We actually put this question to erica and she said With each headline with each new case with each new bizarre choice of photo for a new story lines the flames of anxiety right now in the us but racist scapegoating and outright discrimination does not have to accompany the things. It is an unfortunate echo of the past. But it doesn't have to be

Will Oysters Ever Make a Comeback in the Bay?

"The ocean that's reporter khloe veldman even with a couple of friends so tough khloe. Sorry tough katrina. What's a tough assignment. I eat always does all the time. But i had actually never tried this type. It's called an olympia oyster or ali for short. Oh i've never heard of that kind. Are they like well. They're much smaller than the oysters. Most of us in the bay area a familiar with they taste kind of coppery and pungent and this special because they are native to the san francisco bay. But the oysters you just heard me and my friend guzzling actually harvested from our bay scientists. Say it's still too polluted from agricultural runoff and other chemicals like mercury instead. These came from a farm in washington state. However for thousands of years the olympia grew locally in vast numbers three generations back would be a safe to say that our family last word gathering oysters from the bayshore east bay alone chef and food activist vincent medina says the only was a dietary staple for many local tribes including his own ancestors in raw they would also be cooked in earth ovens underneath the ground and with of sea lettuces and different types of seaweed acorn sue vicious meals matthew buca is an environmental historian and has written a book all about the bays voice to full past. He says olympia oysters. All along the west coast stretching from alaska all the way down into central mexico all these perfectly adapted to survive the cold waters of san francisco bay but they need rocky surfaces to grow on matthew says by the mid eighteen hundreds thousands of years of slow sea level rise and melting sierra. Glaciers made the bay muddier. And that's bad for all these. They were struggling. Basically then the gold rush hit and brought thousands of golden protein hungry settlers. It didn't take long for them to destroy the local population forcing oystermen to look further afield. All the estuaries of the west coast are essentially mind for there to satisfy this endless demand from san francisco. Matthew says soon even those far-flung habitats had been plundered. There were relatively few all east left on the entire west coast but there was still a demand for them. So entrepreneurs took to importing non native varieties from the east coast. You can capture baby. Easter's barrel them up. Put them on. Board schooners later on board unrefrigerated train cars ship them across the entire united states and then they would be placed into san francisco. Bay on privately owned tied lands and harvested as crop demand for always was so high pirates frequently raided the beds bay area native. Jack london tells us about it in his autobiographical novel. John barley corn the winds of adventure blew the oyster pirates. Loops up and down san francisco bay. Before london became famous writer. he was among other things. An infamous oyster pirate every raid on. An- bed was a felony. The ofa glamorized his experience stealing oysters from the bay by night and selling them in the oakland markets the next morning in several literary works and behind it all behind all of me with you. A bubble whispered romance adventure but even the imported oysters didn't survive in the san francisco. Bay for long the already muddy waters were made worse by mining in the sierra during the gold rushes. This turned up more modern sanders sweat downriver. So the san francisco bay historian matthew book says grow moved their atlantic choices to the south bay when mantras less of a problem but heavy industry and human sewage polluted. The bay waters a rash of deaths connected to eating contaminated puts an end to the san francisco bay oyster industry so by the early twentieth century. There are plenty of oyster bay but the people eating them are no longer so sure if this is the right. Food in the nineteen thirties bombing resumed in the clean waters of drake's in somalia's base north of san francisco but the focus especially after world. War two was on pacific oyster varieties from japan. Interesting cultivating the native olympia oyster as a food source dwindled. It still hasn't really come back. So will we ever be able to eat the native only ounce of the bay again even though no always does a grown in san francisco bay food there are efforts to bring them back to help restore the based delicate ecosystem and ecologists have focused on the native. Only that once thrived here sickle spot. Oh you been question. Scott joseph fletcher at the bay natives. Plant nursery in the bayview to interview linda hunter. She's the founder and director of the wild oyster project. Oysters have so many wonderful benefits. Linda tells us does have superpowers. So one grown oyster can filter fifty gallons of water a day. Oysters helped maintain the balance of marine ecosystem but reducing algae and sediment that can contribute to low oxygen levels causing other marine life to die. There's also the fact that oysters provide have attacked for other critters we as cluster on discarded shells rocks peers and heart submerged surfaces. They fuse together. As they grow forming these rock like reefs that make ideal homes for other marine animals. Implants into says the protect coastal lands by reducing the impacts of storm wife's. It's been proven that voice to rapes attenuate. The effects of rising tides caused by the wild oyster projects is trying to rebuild these reefs. That works starts with collecting discarded oyster shells from local restaurants and piling them. Up part sites like bay natives shows in. Linda says eventually these shells will be built into reefs unplaced in the bay. The idea is for these manmade reefs to attract native voices and as a result other wildlife like ill gross salmon crabs egrets says. They've already installed reefs near alameda. Point pinot the first to reflect the at point panel in richmond. I got a phone call from a fisherman who is complaining that his fishing line had been snagged on one of our reef balls. And i said Have you noticed more fish. And he said yes. I have thank you very much. But before they can be turned into reefs. The oyster shells needs to be clete. And that's where the chickens come in. They natives is home to about two dozen chickens. This is the chicken launch. There's not chickens. you have to clean the shell. Otherwise they get stinky and they attract kinds of critters. Should we feed the ins- off the shelves at cleaned laid out in the sun and several years later gobi ready to use annoy staff. This curing process helps kill any harmful bacteria and houghton's the shells. We have plenty of show. We have over ten thousand times here. Linda tells joseph. The projects has been relying more heavily on individual choice to eaters recently since covid nineteen shelter in place. orders have shut down many local restaurants. We are encouraging people to save their own trucks. Bring by one insights. Now you know what to do just dump them in the lounge

How This CRO Builds Start-ups with Both Enterprise and High Velocity Sales Teams

"Mark thanks for joining us today. As a way of getting started gives a little. Bit of background on yourself eight brian. Thanks for having me on the program background. I love talking about myself. So you might have to cut me off here I am currently the chief revenue officer very silicon valley like term for a a data company called h. g. data. I live in the san francisco bay area. And i come down to beautiful santa barbara For a couple of days a week which is where we're located and as far as being in sales. What's what's you specialty in. Well there there. Two things that i that i spent with their two type of companies that i've spent most of my career with here for the last decade more turnaround situations where i've been brought into tech companies. That have stalled. Started to flail little bit and on the guy that Gets out the shock. shock pads and tries to rejuvenate an entity. And those are those are fun when when you can do them well and then i've also recently gotten a bit addicted to pre revenue tech startups. These are two or three guys sitting in a basement with a whiteboard. They often don't even have product built yet. They've got an idea they want to disrupt the market. And i'm brought in as the go to market guy like let's figure out what we can monetize how to do it. And then let's get after it get some revenue in the door go gets around funding and then hopefully get it to to be erected or see. Let's let's start with the turnaround. Because that's kind of what i've been dragged into for the last five years. What's your approach on the turnaround. So you going into a place there. Stalled at I don't know what your space made. Five ten million dollars. The investors are anxious. They can't raise another round. What's your approach. Well i think there's there's two frames that i typically look at in one one. I usually do pre engagement to to determine if i'm going to get get involved. Which is what's the external market conditions. you know. I have been lucky enough to work in spaces that are growing so that is just tech in general but more specifically the last couple of years has been serum extended. I did do a stint in healthcare it. That was tacked. But i probably miss read. What's happening with healthcare from the outside. That looks very appealing but internally not so much so the first is the external environment is this arena where entrenched players are have gotten a little bit lazy and buying cycles are such that that new entrance can break in in make a difference so that's the external environment and based on what i've said i've generally focused on environments where i think that they are right once in turtle is often find that that it's just business one one stuff and i have been around long enough you know. I got out of college in ninety one. Next week is my forty th birthday and so i've i've seen business cycles and i been in the bay area over over twenty years so i certainly have seen hype curbs in bubbles and bus and i think that has allowed me to go in and call. I don't know if i if i gave you the longer. Version that if you if you'd have to bleep it. Pc see i've seen when folks are deluding themselves when companies are deluding themselves on either their product market fit or their go to market strategy or the original vision their differentiation of strategy disagreements between senior staff or investors board and staff and usually between those those bullets i just listed. There's two or three major disconnects that when you're living and breathing a startup you just lose perspective and by being the new guy on the block. I can actually call out those things relatively quickly. I'm also an east coast guy so even been california now since ninety three. I tend to be very frank and direct And i think that that candidness allows people to to call out the elephant in the room. That people have been avoiding for some time. I don't know if

How the pandemic is impacting Bay Area small businesses

"This episode is part of our series exploring covid nineteen impact on nonprofits and small businesses in the san francisco bay area back in april of twenty twenty when we decided to create this ongoing series on covid nineteen impact i or 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 going into twenty twenty one. The pandemic is now killing more people shutting down more nonprofits and small businesses on with wiping out the livelihoods of families neighborhoods and communities. 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 covid nineteen pandemic on their operations services is an ability until we can all get to the other side of the pandemic along the way we will also share with you all the amazing solutions that are nonprofits. Small businesses foundations and government leaders are working on to help us all get to the other side of the pandemic and come together to rebuild our communities with more economic social and environmental equality. What is very clear is that business owners are challenged right now in a way they never have been you know open close and indoors outdoors. You know p p what is it. What do i do with it. Who do i give it to so many challenges right now and our goal is to really help is many of these small businesses weather this storm so to speak as best we can and for that reason i like to encourage businesses to reach out to us especially work with a business advisor. This is the district director of the small business. Administration's san francisco district office julie. Cows over these ten plus months we have been sharing the voices of small businesses and covert nineteen s- devastating impact on their survival with the latest round of federal funds now being deployed we wondered host julie to help guide our listeners through the funding opportunities available to both nonprofits in small businesses. I'm joined remotely via zoom by julie. Cows the district director of the small business. Administration's san francisco district office. Thank you for being here. Julie thank you for the invitation. The sba is one of those government departments that for a lot of people. See it as a black box where it's going to require all these forms all this information i don't have so i think it would really be helpful if you could provide a background on the sba here in san francisco. That's the district to manage and how you work with small businesses and really now nonprofits. Absolutely i do think. There's a lot of preconceived notions about who. Spa is what they do and who we help. But we are a federal agency where an independent agency and our mission is to help. Businesses start and grow and continue to prosper. And we do that. Offering a variety of programs and services can kinda break those into four buckets as an easy way to talk about it. A so there's the access to capital bucket. Which may be where most known for but we actually have programs that go from microfinancing loans of fifty thousand dollars or less all the way on up through venture capital and then our bread and butter program kind of is our loan guarantee program which is loans through commercial lenders up to five million but we also have government contracting assistance so we help with federal certifications. We actually work behind the scenes with other agencies trying to get them to utilize small businesses as their contractors so we do a lot to help small businesses kind of break into federal contracting and be successful the third bucket we have is business advising free business counseling and low no cost training and honestly. I think this is probably the most invaluable service. Sba offers so through our network of grants resource providers. You may have heard small business development center score women business centres anna veteran business outreach center we provide free business advising and especially in this challenging times right now.

What COVID-19 lockdowns show about a future with electric vehicles

"Many people expect the future of transportation to be electric and that drivers will charge their cars with solar and wind power. Recently scientists got a window into that future and saw what it could mean for the climate and people's health. Ronald cohen is a professor of chemistry at the university of california. Berkeley for years. His team has been using low cost sensors to monitor and map carbon emissions and air pollution in the bay area when the covid nineteen pandemic hit. He saw unique opportunity shelter in place. Orders effectively stimulated a future with fewer gas powered cars. We had a brief moment two or three weeks in every city that shutdown where passenger vehicles drop to almost half of their normal driving miles. Coen's team found that during the first six weeks of the shelter in place order in the san francisco bay area carbon dioxide emissions fell by about thirty percent other air pollution improved to and that was almost entirely due to a decrease in passenger vehicles. So he says the data demonstrates the benefits of moving away from gas powered cars. We can reduce co two emissions and reduce health impacts at the same

If widespread remote work becomes the new normal in Washington DC, a lot of people would be left out

"Ah, lot of people around here are doing their jobs from home. But how will increased remote working effect? The D C area of report by the Greater Washington partnership found that employers expect fewer than 30% of their workers to be physically at work sites in the first quarter of this year, increasing to 75% By the fall. The report finds the capital region a second on Lee to the San Francisco Bay area in the share of people who work in remote capable jobs. Researchers don't expect a lot of people to move out of the D M V like they have in San Francisco in New York.

How the San Francisco Comunity Music Center is thriving in the pandemic

"Of our counters died from complications due to hiv and aids. I'm the remaining survivor. There are many who supported a stirring that time but having navigated losing dancers choreographers audience members weekly similar to what we're seeing now and yet the differences so many people were unaware and didn't care you can tell. The pain still sits with me the trauma and i think that we are in that now. We will be in that period of time. I would say decades of time where we will be sitting with. What wasn't done. What was left unsaid. What was not attempted for the safety of people over profit. This is the co founder and executive director of dancers group wayne hazard. The dancer group was born in the middle of the aids crisis and has over the decades into a service organization providing wrap around fiscal sponsorship programs and services to incubate and support artists and the dance community as well as their historical roots at presenting unique grassroots base. Dance to the san francisco bay area. I'm joined remotely via zoom by wayne hazard the executive director of dancers group. Thanks for being here win. Thanks george it's my pleasure on martin luther king junior day twenty twenty one yes quite a solemn day and quite a powerful day so segue to our first question. Which is i think. The audience probably doesn't know dance group which is an interesting can of service group model. So if you could give us a little background on the dancers group and some of the really unique the of eighteen programs while it's my favorite topic obviously vance's group has been around since nineteen eighty two and we were founded in san francisco's mission district. We really started out. As a collective of choreographers of dance makers looking to have support space and camaraderie and ways to be in relationship to one. Another and really. That hasn't changed thirty nine years later. I like to call us now. Hybrid organization. Because i think it kind of clicks with people one and two. It's kind of what we do in terms of providing direct services to dance makers dancers those interested in dance and we also present dance at timmy's and i say that in that way because we do commissioning of work but we also have large programs of the your leg bay area dance week where pretty The pandemic we had twenty two thousand people in the spring. Take free dance. Classes all over the bay area from hip hop to who led to back to tap to beginning movement classes. Were children to adults. Dance for people with parkinson's you name it. We probably haven't morale-booster over the years so the services we do really are about you know supporting people where they are classes. Discounts performance information discounts on those and. Then we provide direct services to dance makers through our fiscal sponsorship program. We have over one hundred and twenty five dance companies dance projects that fundraise under us so each year close to one point. Five million raised less than we redistribute through expenses back to those entities where over generally pandemic times of three hundred thousand people attend those company and artists activities classes and performances though this last going on ten months with covid nineteen and so much of obviously performing arts and dance especially is a personal experience. How has the dance group dealt with the covid nineteen and economic meltdown. And then how do you feel like. It's impacted all of the dozens of dance. Performance groups that you incubate and work with big question. I'll start by saying that. Dancers groups founders along with myself win through the aids pandemic in the early eighties. All the way into the nineties and still continuing today as a worldwide pandemic beget really not seeing that way. Because of i think broadly and it's changed a bit but seeing as a gay male disease. Two of our founders died from complications hiv and aids. I'm the remaining survivor. There are many who supported a stirring that time but having navigated losing dancers choreographers audience members weekly similar to what we're seeing now and yet the differences so many people were unaware and didn't care you can tell. The pain still sits with me the trauma and i think that we are in that now. We will be in that period of time. I would say decades of time where we will be sitting with what was done what was left unsaid. What was not attempted for the safety of people over prophet so specifically to your question. I think one of the first things we did as an organization is aboard said. Are you okay and we. We talked a lot. We said to staff your job is there. We like many organizations applied for support both private foundations and others to help us navigate this time. We are very fortunate in the bay area to have major foundations. Like the hewlett some rain ins and haase's and fly checkers Really step forward and then we just looked at getting information out early on also. Many organizations were creating cove relief funds and the area had going. i and i was approached by a donor. Saying here's a large took money. Let's get this out to dancers. And i said well what if we join forces with theatre bay area would if we not created just one more fun but just was able to get more money to one fund and so the funder liked that the donor like that theatre bay area. Love that inter music. Sf joined as well and so there's a performing arts workers relief fund on theatre bay area dot org site it's also on dancers

Unpacking The Surge In Violence Against Asian Americans

"Seeing a surge and anti Asian attacks against the elderly. A 91 year old man was violently shoved to the ground in Oakland's Chinatown in 84 year Old Man was killed in San Francisco last month. And this uptick in anti Asian violence is not just local wrestled. Young is a professor of Asian American studies at San Francisco State University and co founder of Stop A P I Hate, which is tracking these incidents. And professor have the number and kinds of these incidents against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders change since the pandemic began. Yeah, in the beginning at the start of the pandemic, when people had higher fears when shelter in place started. And when President Trump began to insist on using the term China virus, we saw clear surge of racism. We saw how hate speech like using the term China virus led to hate violence. And I think that has invited a climate where people can target Asian Americans and attack them. It's really horrifying the crimes against our elderly population. You know, my mom's 94. I grew up with my grandmother. So for the Asian American community, see our elders. An attack like this is particularly Horrific and touches close to home. There have been previous waves of hate crimes against Asian Americans over in our country's history, obviously and during periods of economic distress going back Two the murder of instant shin in Michigan in 1982. Does this seem different to you? We've seen surges and racism against Asian American during times of epidemic. During times of war like Japanese American incarceration, Yes or 9, 11 and in times of economic downturn. It's different now, because we're have all three conditions. We have the pandemic. We have the worst recession since the Great Depression. And we have the U. S. China Cold War. What kinds of incidents are you seeing? Um, Obviously we've seen these brutal physical attacks against the elderly Recently. What other kinds of incidents are you seeing? Yes. Oh, about 8% of our incidents are physical thoughts were getting pushed and showed having rocks and bottles thrown at us another of large percentage. We're getting coughed and spat upon 8% of our cases. So my own wife was Running insulin disc, locked her away on a trail and coughed in her face That's happened so often again. We began to track it and because because people think we're a health hazard, so they want to get back at us by coughing at us, it's sort of unique to the pandemic. Most cases, though, our verbal harassment 70% are we're getting yelled at again. We have racial slurs slung at us, but the other, not this micro aggressions. They're pretty traumatizing. They're really troubling these cases of hate. And how satisfied are you with the response by law enforcement in the community, especially here locally with these recent incidents. Think law enforcement and local jurisdictions have been responsive. They recognized the problem. I think it's because Asian American community has advocated and stood up so strongly. President Biden issuing a memo announcing the anti Asian here. I think that's a victory for the Asian American community breath. These concerns his attention. You know, Friday's Lunar New Year do you have, you know heightened safety concerns around This, uh, this upcoming holiday? Yeah, we do. Asian American only are often going out shopping may have more money and then could be more vulnerable. So we're calling in at least in the San Francisco Bay area is for local residents to go out and patronize Chinatown because of the pandemic, Things had been shut down. And so the elderly when they do go out or more isolated if we could have more residents going out shopping, strolling not acting as vigilantes or patrols, but just being present. Also calling for more funding for community ambassadors, not necessarily more policing. But more hiring of local residents who know the neighborhood come from the community that speech of the merchants and the residents. No, even serving the UN house. People in our neighborhood. Okay.

South African variant of COVID-19 identified in California

"Cases of the South African Corona virus variant in the San Francisco Bay Area. Governor Gavin Newsom announced the findings today during a trip to Fresno to town the state's efforts to vaccinate people More than five million vaccine doses have been administered in the state. The South African variant is one of several that's been identified in California. The presence of the new virus variants marked a dim note in an otherwise upbeat news conference by the governor today. Justina Honest and reports California's first two cases of the South African Corona virus mutation were detected in Alameda and Santa Clara counties. Governor Gavin Newsom made the announcement during a trip to mark the state's five million vaccination in Fresno. We have 159 identifiable cases of the UK variant in the state. We have 1203 identifiable west Coast variance in the state there two types of West Coast variants. I said yesterday that we had not identified any Brazilian variants, and that's true Yesterday. I also said we hadn't identified any South African variance that's no longer true. As of a few hours ago, we have the first reported cases of South African variants. Two cases have been reported to Stanford, Newsome says. In total, the state has identified less than 1500 cases of variant covert 19 strains. South African variant was first identified in the nation late last month. In South Carolina. Scientists and health officials feared the new variants could be more contagious, less responsive to treatments like vaccines and more likely to re infect people who already had the virus. Experts say One of the mutations may become a dominant Corona virus strain in the coming months, and if it's resistant to treatment, another surge could be looming. But until then, Newsome says Corona virus infection rates, hospitalizations and cases continue to decline in California 34% decline in

The power of transferring technology for climate adaptation

"Key. Part of adapting to climate. change is prediction in louisiana. Where water is eroding. Huge chunks of land every year that means looking at how increasingly dangerous hurricanes might move water and sand and which areas might flood. And which won't yesterday. We talked with the dutch scientists who make computer models that help make those predictions the water institute of the gulf or based in baton rouge that uses the dutch models to help mitigate erosion and transfers its findings around the country and the world just an errand worth is president and ceo of the water institute. He told me the answers. The institute is looking for though can only come from computers we started something called participatory modeling and what that really means. Is we begin with the community experience. We roll up our sleeves and really work with the community to understand. What are the things that they're most worried about. What are they seeing. What are their ideas for. How to protect and restore the areas that they care the most about we introduce the numerical models to our colleagues in the community. We get their ideas and their feedback. Can we actually take their thoughts. Their suggestions and we put those ideas into our numerical models and we run them then we come back and have another session where we say all right Look at the results of your suggestion. That was remarkable right. Sounds like what you're saying is it's really easy to run a simulation that says this area just won't be inhabitable anymore. The end everyone has to leave and that not only is. There are more empathetic way to do that. But in fact there might be a way to run a better simulation exactly. And if you do it the old fashioned way where you're looking at a series of of projects to protect vulnerable communities and you use the old fashioned benefit cost analysis that is going to absolutely contribute to environmental injustice so we need to value the input of community members and then we need to ensure that it gets the same level of treatment in determining. What solutions do we put forward. What adaptation strategies do we invest in. And where has a community solution to your knowledge ever been adopted so there are several in development and being considered right now in saint bernard there were a series of ideas that were put forward That are being considered. We also did a good bit of work. in participatory modeling in plaquemines parish louisiana. That came up with this sweet of Proposals that are now. Before the governor and the coastal protection restoration authority in louisiana for potential incorporation in the twenty twenty three coastal master. plan here. So we're really scratching the surface of this methodology. And we look forward to doing much more of it. Where else are you finding that. You're models are more applicable in the last decade or two decades. Then you would have imagined in the in the us one of the areas. We've been spending a lot of time. Recently in charleston south carolina there is a recognition that to preserve the deep history and culture. In a place like charleston. They need to invest now on the front end and not wait for the next storm and coastal environments and other parts of the other parts of the world are dealing with these issues and we spent a bit of time recently in argentina. Twenty five kilometers outside of Race in a community that is really trying to prepare for the next twenty five to fifty years of increased innovation so Unfortunately there's no shortage of areas. That need this kind of attention. I was actually going to say feels to me. Like maybe facebook or the city of san francisco which is eventually going to lose. Its airport should probably going absolutely and there's a lot of modeling that shows that a lotta the san francisco bay area for example be underwater in twenty to fifty years. Yes and while we haven't done it as the water institute. A couple of our of our colleagues at the institute before they joined actually did a lot of work in in san francisco for exactly the reasons that you mentioned. Facebook should totally call you.

Birding with Dr Meredith Williams

"Berta. Volt from more than one. Hundred and fifty million years ago and then explosively diversified culminating in more than ten thousand species distributed worldwide. Today are human. Relationship to beds is complex to seen as spirit messengers of the gods and at the same time. We took the wild red jungle fowl. From india and selectively bred into domesticated chickens the now farmed in cages feathers have been used for thousands of years and indigenous headpieces and at the same time but has like parrots and parakeets a kept as pets bird poop called guana was used as the first fertilize of modern agriculture. And charles darwin study of galapagos finches was to the formulation of evolution. Buds are all around us. We are closer to bed than any other wild animals birds. I literally and figuratively are canaries in the coal mine. Their wellbeing is our wellbeing threats to buds range from habitat loss including logging climate change industrial farming with pesticides invasive species and even cats. These will had a devastating impact on the bird populations of the us and canada. Which in just the last fifty years have declined by. Three billion birds danton insane. Thirty percent of all birds gone. Three billion pez of wings have vanished ever across our continent from sea to shining sea. Luckily birds have strong allies in their corner. There an estimated sixty million active bird watches in the us alone and with the pandemic shutting down so much of our country. We have flocking to bird watching like never before everything from bird feeders. To binoculars have been in short supply and this year the birding app e bird collected more sightings in a single day the was admitted during the first two and a half years of the apps existence. I must admit coming late to the bird-watching pardee. But thanks to dr meredith williams. That's about to change. I'm lucky enough to work with meredith every day in her role. Running one of the most important and complex agencies in california governor. The department of toxic substance control. Dr williams received two undergraduate degree from yale and a doctorate in physics from north carolina. State university meredith then worked and silicon valley fortune. Five hundred companies in the technology consumer product and chemical sectors meredith left the private sector to follow her passion for wetlands and birds and led the san francisco estuary institute as we'll hear. Meredith journey is about so much more than her resume. Meredith nine meet apt get ready for my maiden watching invention merit so we're about to go hopefully bed watching what. What do we need to bring with us while like what. What's what's in the bird watching backpack almost nothing. Which is great binoculars. Of course are your starting point. So i hope you have some inaugurals. I know you were looking for some recently. You gave me some good advice. But i get any but we all kind of professional but what just like you would have an extra pair. Do thought so. It's in the office but we could stop on the way out of town. Not of that sound. No we should. We should yeah. You just kind of out now. Okay okay so you got the binoculars. How do you if you're starting out. It's surprising how good have gotten very affordable these days so i mean it's still a lot to invest but ask a bird watcher. They might have an extra pair. That's the first place you might wanna try like them. What do you well. first of. All there are lots of different kinds of birdwatchers in terms of some people. Want to count every burden get really long list. And they track every single birthday they see. It's about the numbers of the that very unique bird and they chase vagrant birds that fly in unusually and they're rushing off to see that bird so there those kind of bird watchers I'm a bird watcher. Just watch one bird for a long time. I liked bird behavior. just i'm just fascinated by them. And i think they're beautiful so i could just end up watching one bird for for quite a while you can just take it. In at whatever level you want in terms of the variety birds that you could see and how you would just experience them and enjoy them. So and i think the only way to find that out is to bert. Watch a little and see what grabs you What you do sounds really peaceful. The first thing that sounds the first thing sounds more. Like in england as a whole breed of people go train spotters and i always kind of identified them with bird watchers. Like it's really about. How many things. You've you've been able to capture and less about the bird the thing that you'll doing just sounds like being a peaceful will watching another animal even the people who are energized. That way unless they're doing a big day which would be a day when they map it out to see as many birds as they can. In a single day they're not necessarily rushing around even they are going to have moments of really enjoying a bird and even somebody like me chased around golden gate park looking for a rare warbler. That's very rarely in san francisco. There's an amiability amongst birdwatchers is really camaraderie. People are so nice. There's always somebody better in terms of being a better bird watcher. Meaning they either can identify birds better or you know they just have a lot of experience for the a little bit about. The ecology and people are so happy to share their information. That it's really wonderful. That's one of the things i like about it. And it tends to be every now and then you get into group and there'll be somebody who's a little loud but by and large the the folks are really kind of it's easy to get in a groove with with birdwatchers and settled and gopher along stroll and see some great birds. But what's there everywhere that it's a it's a big i mean like it huge movement and it's growing apparently it's one of the fastest growing outdoor activities. There is it's it is just kind of crazy places where i been going for ten years and cues to be just me and five or six friends maybe and now parking lot and i think the pandemic has made it even more so where a lot of people. That's how they wanna get outdoors or they've they've just kind of discovering it because they know it is one of the only ways to be outdoors so i think it's going to continue to grow which i think is great because then more people are connected to the natural world which obviously makes them care about it more. How did you get into meredith like what. What was your journey into bed watching. I mean i liked birds always in the yard growing up in ohio. You know the robbins and the blue jays. There was a hill in town. And i used to ride my bike up in the hill early in the morning and i would always see birdwatchers and i said when i'm old air quotes. I'm going to bird watch. And i kind of that seed was planted but i didn't really bird-watching until my three say in my thirties. I started volunteering for the san francisco. Bay national wildlife refuges. That you know are on the perimeter of the bay. You know them well getting restored a lot of them Back to title harsh. And i when i volunteered i would be doing everything from pulling out. Invasive plants to building shells but there are always birds around and i just became more and more and more fascinated with the birds invested in binoculars and just started creeping in. You join the audubon society and suddenly you're getting news about different outings and the next thing you know you're you're pretty far in foreign now. I'm foreign. I'm not pretty far and have taken a couple bird vacations. Which i think says that. I'm pretty far in. But what do those entail. The longest trip i took was to go to brazil to the pantanal. Which is a very large wetland like the mecca of bud watching their many mecca. It is a mecca over the course of two weeks. We just went out every morning. We get up before sunrise. Be moving by six o'clock at the latest. Usually more like five thirty and we went to a place that's called the parrot crater a giant sinkhole. And it's all a lot of parents live down in the sinkhole. And so you look down. A new parrots lying around in a simple it was tremendous and we ended up seen two hundred different species of birds there along with some giant giant eaters river otter is and it was quite a trip but the birds were spectacular.

"Bill. Graham for anybody who doesn't know bill. Graham is great promoter of the bay area one of the legendary rock promoter and he started putting on these shows which were basically gifts to the bay area called day on the green where there will be an amazing bill with actually different kinds of bands on it And they would always be in like like Oakland Stadium earls Oakland Berkeley Calcium. Yeah Yeah so they would big show summer shows and of course infused bill. Graham could be the biggest accident so I mean there was huge headliners. You know it would be the biggest acts of day with a bunch of smaller bands but it was always amazing thing so people would go to the show you turn up at the at the at the arena at the arena. The stadium at you know Eleven o'clock in the morning and you'd see amazing stuff from like noon onward all the Bay Area Musicians Attendance Car Kamat as a youngster attended. These shows and meant the big deal. I think that's when I gotta look at. Ufo was at one of those shows and everybody talks about them. So it's a big deal when in nineteen hundred. Five metallic is asked to be on the bill of this show now the headliner. That day was Scorpions. And then there's a few other bands below. That rat was one of the bands that day. But METALLICA was I think second or third on the bill early it was still daylight when they were playing but it was a huge acknowledgement that this band was up and coming and that they meant something and of course two of the players in the band. Kirk and cliff a from the bay area so they literally looking out at the sea of people but seeing friends there and they had of course been people in the audience if they on the ground so for them. It was a huge moment for them personally but also for thrash metal. Brian Lou puts it very well in the film. He said. The fact that Metallica was playing Dan the Green. It was like all of us are playing down the green we all. They can make crush a lot lately and I want to add this. Luckily for history. There'd be no record of it. Were not for MTV news. It's not even the regular. Division news had their camera one camera there and typically news is allowed to she three songs of anybody set and then you have to shut down your cameras. Same thing with photographers day. Let them shoot songs and make clear out the pit and then then they're they're not allowed to be there anymore so thankfully for history. That camera on that day was located on Cliff Burton side of the stage and when cliff played this. I mean anything but particularly when he was playing the intro for whom the bell tolls. The camera was right there on him. And it's probably believed the best record you know in filmed version that we have of cliff. Burton playing anything but of course that song. And it's you know it's all over the Internet it's everywhere and it's a legendary piece of footage and really if anything demonstrates cliffs unique ability. It's that moment in time so thankfully that day. That camera was located there. Yeah I personally think that that's their worldwide. Coming out party is Them on the green that will always be remembered as that moment Where you know they they they start the crossover outside of small into into you know let's face it world domination. Exactly I mean who knows where it would go from. There was still only on their second album. Master puppets had not yet come out an and it's amazing but I mean if you look the first two albums kill ride the lightning just each one. That progression forward relentlessly and powerfully. So just an amazing metallica. Just amazing stuff going on there. I love the story. I it may be my favorite story in the movie of them at the show and of course burn that Taryn the dressing room up and then getting called on the carpet. The next story a lot of people had heard a little about. But you know we. We told it really nicely. I mean getting Hadfield to tell them himself than Tony Isabella. Who is a she worked for bill? Graham presents many years booking them and was a real booster of the thrash metal bands not she managed to exit. Throw also not just not. Just of METALLICA. Talking about somebody who really contributed again. I really want to made an effort to get the female perspective in here and show. How important all these ladies were to. The scene Antonio's Abella. You know just like w Bono. The story is is a bit of legend at this point where Metallica played Dan the green following. That did what they normally would do. Which was kind of you know. Get pretty drunk and cut loose and and they happen to wreck the trailer that the backstage trial that they were in a Bill Graham being being the guy he was. I mean he was known for be booking. Great stuff that is hardcore dude. I mean it's five the Holocaust dot out of out of Europe and stuff so he was no pushover. This was a tough man who could like who stood for no no nonsense in his backstage. He viewed it as his home. The backstage was his home. That's that's how he he was and he treated the band's very well by the way he he was known for for taking care of them and he wouldn't tolerate any of this without Bill Graham. We wouldn't have the backstage experience that you get with an artist before Graham. It was. It was dirty nasty. Barely able to find a seat without cockroaches on it or something like that and built turned it into as you said perfectly a home right and he did that. Now he came up during that during the Janice Joplin Jefferson Airplane Eric. But he was still that way in the eighties and and he didn't amazing. Thanks so they tear up the place and you know bill. Bill demanded respect Disrespect this man and he had a lot of cloud. I mean he booked the shows of the bay area so I mean if you went against him did so at your own peril you find yourself not getting booked so I mean you really had respect what he did. But if you're expected to me like you're fine. Yeah so anyway. The famous story is he called. He wanted somebody for the turn out to be James Hadfield. He he had them. You didn't just ask them to get on the phone but he wants to somebody to come down and make a formal apology in person for destroy that that back room and understand what they did and you know it's it's a funny moment. I mean James. As we all know has has been through his trials and tribulations and come through sobriety and and I think at that point he was not there yet. You still many years away from that but I think he respected this stern father figure that that Bill Graham was I mean he didn't go in there and curse him out. James Danes went in there and apologized and kind of admitted to be in kind of an idiot about it and and and I think what you ended was two guys with mutual respect for each other because according to Tony Afterward. You know they'll respect James. It always asks that's for him you know. How's he doing? And and you know James of course returned in Nineteen ninety-one. They play emigrated gimmicks that time they were the headliners so it's really amazing progression there. Yeah now film kind ends with it's almost like to Indians and I think it's a good place a for for the film to come to a close Because it's about the scene and that scene does kind of begin to fade away around the same time that we lose cliff Burton in In one thousand nine hundred was January nineteen eighty six so just a few months after that a couple of September eighty six. That's actually what yes. Oh sorry sorry. I'm sorry I my notes. It's it's raybird cliff's father who just recently passed just yes. He passed away in January this year. That's correct this wonderful man wonderful. Yeah who does make an appearance in the film as well of course? Yeah Yeah. Yeah so but your film does end with the death of of Cliff Burton which is kind of you know the beginning of the fading of the scene itself even though some of these guys continue to you know like we've said several times go on for world domination right. I here's what I knew before. I ever shot any film I sat. I laid the story out with Brian. And Harold Pretty much realized I had a super-rich tale of of of you know this musical movement and Cultural Movement really and that between the starting of exodus in around one thousand nine hundred eighty and I knew I wanted to tell that story about everybody looking for records and everything so I had to have time for that to the death of cliff. Burton in nineteen eighty six. I already had a movie. I just had a movie had ninety minutes of stuff. And so I like I did want to overstay my welcome and I just thought That release it. I didn't want to really say that the scene ended but certainly a moment in the scene. It's absolutely a milestone is. The death of cliff was was such a powerful moment. Felt by so many one of the people said they were all so young they had lost anybody yet and so it was really quite powerful and I thought that's that's much story as I can tell I would encourage anybody to pick up the torch and make a film about a testament or Death Angel. The great stories and should be told. I just didn't have room in my thing to tell it but those those are great stories at almost. Were were starting as cliff. Lewis was having overlap a little bit but you know Kinda cliff was was at the end of his life and those stories. We're just really beginning. There were on so I think it's it's amazing kind of time to like. Bring it up to and yes. We were very fortunate to have the participation of of close father Ray who passed away the old age of much older age of ninety four. He was this year and but you know what was beautiful about it was. He carried the torch for his son for so long. And just you know I feel like he could have just kind of you know guy closed shop. You know just just retired away and not really talked to anybody about it instead. He chose to kind of open up his world and give everybody. I never do cliff. Burton never saw play. But I feel like I knew a bit of him because I was able to talk to Ray and he gave that gift to so many people he was totally open. You go to a fence. Who Go to metallica shows. But it also go to like record store events and all kinds of stuff and and also things for music events where where they would have cl- space or something and he would always be there so people could kind of have a feeling of of being in touch with cliff. That takes a lot of strength. Humility and Ray was beautiful man for doing that. Yeah it was really great. So of course. Yes he beautifully in our movie in very touch by. Yes yeah but the real ending is that this this music persists. It's still out there and you know you spend the you know the end of it with the metal allegiance which is Kinda you know bay area supergroup..

"About San Francisco Bay that we know now in the bay area all the while telling the great red however prior to that the reason for salmon system had to do with the soft gold and I learned from Claudio song whose new book is west of the revolution that soft gold which we understand generally at sea otter and fox the wonderful offers that were desired in Beijing globalized was part of a trade that circumnavigated the planet at this time in seventeen seventy six I did not know of the existence of a of a trading colony a warehouse in Russia that was part of this chain of acquiring sea otter and then sending it around the world the Russians as they pushed east and decide berry and then two of the Aleutian Islands then to Alaska was it always in search of the soft gold without what drove them Claudia they are driven by for is and then that's what drives them to conquer Siberia and the seventeenth century and they eventually hunt out the most valuable of the for is so further desired ends in Saint Petersburg but but also in Beijing as you say so they they hunt out the furs in Siberia move east eventually hit the Pacific found a hot in the middle of the seventeenth century and then VS bearing crosses the Pacific and the seventeen forties and they discover the Aleutian Islands and just move up that island chain hunting all the way but on the Aleutians with a fine arts theater which is that the densest for any mammal and these are highly desired by royalty in Beijing the Chinese court so they're extraordinarily valuable they are indeed soft goals what I like in addition to all the details in your book is the way that this is a way of telling the the global story in the eighteenth century we have this narrow view of the events of Philadelphia and now there's a way of connecting them to the other capitals one city you cite here of theirs on Alaska but key aka does that still exist in Siberia it does indeed exist and you can find it on Google maps of today sits on the border of Mongolia and China or rather my girly and Russia and but in the sense of a it's a it's a little dusty town today but back in the eighteenth century it was at the center of the international trade so let me just get this out briefly that the sea otters are originating on the Aleutian Islands they are hunted by and by local alley it's traded to the Russians and then they're shipped across the Pacific to our hot because of this is on the east coast of Siberia then ported over land to the Yenisey river carried op river eventually teacher R. your critic and then to the kiosk at this little tiny town town which by a tree at seventeen twenty seven is the pivotal point all trade between Russia and China passes through this little town so that's one arm of the trade the second New World component of this is that three thousand miles to the east of the elections there are a center Blaine and Cree Indians hunting beaver those are brought to the shores of Hudson Bay sold to the British and then put in barrels and carried over across the Atlantic to London and then in the seventeen seventies about thirty thousand of these furs are re exported to Saint Petersburg or our friend gals on the White Sea and put on slabs carried all the way across a bay area to the act and put in the same warehouse with the with the sea otter set this extraordinary example of global trade back in the seventeen seventies quickly in seventeen seventy six seventy four seventy five seventy six a man named onza explores the San Francisco Bay and the area from San Jose all the way up to Monterey YC there was he seeking to establish a colony well there is some thinking and some evidence that there is a great river is that his mouth of the San Francisco Bay and that if you were to follow this river Galahad up river you would eventually get to the southwest so which ever European empire controlled this port would have access to the interior of the continent and Spain that suddenly thought it was essential to establish control of San Francisco especially with this with the Russian threat moving down from from the north so that was on this is that was on his wrist so he moving from Monterey up to San Francisco Bay they were looking to move their front tier to make a claim just in case that river took them into the interior exactly and and and this is all in response to the Russians they and they don't have it neither the Russians are the Spanish have any sense of of what the Pacific Northwest looks like I don't know what the coastline looks like they don't know how far hard on Alaska is from Santa Fe or that the wealthy rich silver mines of northern Mexico so and get their ignorance unfortunately is proportional to their anxieties and they're the Spanish are obsessed with the Russians in the seventeen seventies and the threat that they represent so therefore they do establish this colony in San Francisco in seventeen seventy six and is no or over ride pretty much treat the native Americans the way the British do when they take possession of the east from this out from the Spanish and French empire the way the French to their land claims aren't indifference and the tribes dry out diet quickly is that pandemics that killed him it is pandemics and these are people who live in a difficult environment we don't think of California that way today but back in the eighteenth century through the resources are relatively scarce and there's lots of archaeological evidence for this so they don't have a lot to fall back on when the Spanish arrived in the Spanish arrived with domesticated animals peg and cat all to destroy the resources the native peoples rely on and then of course also the Spanish arrive with these Old World viruses measles influence the worst of all being small pox and it does just wipe out the indigenous population and that disappears and the following colonists which will arrive after Fremont explores the way west in the nineteenth century are ignorant as they arrived at this territory was not empty this is not a and on touch to a forest but is in fact been wiped out by pandemics and exploitation by two empires that also disappear Claudio song because the author Richard B.

"And you're paying down your mortgage, and you need the money is next to impossible to get it back again. It's a lot better to have access to that money before you need it then need it and not be able to get it. Because if you have lost. Your ability to repay the mortgage. They're not going to give you another loan. But if you have money over in a liquid site fund, you can access the money in the event of an emergency. Many people have sent me thank you notes because of this one concept, but many times people have a non owner occupied rental income real estate, and that is tax deductible when you do it correctly and many times I show people. You know, what the your rental property could be performing way better. They thought themselves on the chest like in the San Francisco Bay area because their five bedroom home at praises for four million dollars. Well, but you're only rented it out for ten grand a month. That's pathetic. Do you know that you could own ten other four hundred thousand dollar homes the same size in a lot of other cities in this country and a four hundred thousand dollar rental will rent for four grand a month. In other words, if you've got a four million dollar property, it'd be nice if that rented four forty grand a month, but see sometimes these people then have to leverage or sell that property, and then reposition that money or do ten thirty one exchanges. And all of a sudden they're getting one percent a month, a three hundred thousand dollar rental ought to be renting for about three grand a month one percent of its value. But most real estate in most cities don't do that. But I can show you the cities it does this is what we teach at our educational events. But one of the favorite strategies is we show people who have money in IRA's and 4._0._1._K's how to strategically get it out. But while it's still there to protect it from this market wet saw. How to have a protective overlay? So that you don't lose when the market drops ten twenty or thirty or forty percent say that's the strategy. I use with my favorite vehicle the laser fund when the market goes down. You don't lose when the market goes up you make money and so from two thousand two thousand ten when most people lost forty percent of their money. I two and a half times to my money and sort of my clients. But that's if you move it over to tax free vehicles in the laser fund, if you're trying to do that over a five year period to grandfather yourself to be tax free, and you still have money and yet to be taxed IRA's 4._0._1._K's in the market, you need to come and learn how to put put a protective overly on that. So you don't lose while you're trying to get it out of the market in a timely fashion that doesn't trigger excess tax while you're doing strategic rollout. I wish I had more time to explain this. But this is why we teach these educational events are a venture like tax planning clinics..

"Time that I met somebody who was from Oregon, and he came down here to Dublin California where I live in the San Francisco Bay area, and he he started going door to door here in my own city and to me that was a shock. I've never done door to door evangelism on my city or much in my life at all. And and just in a short time of we can half. I I started to see people get saved starting to be disciples, and and and the beginnings of church and several instances and just happening so quickly and so powerfully. And so that kinda peaked my curiosity, and I started thinking, you know, what can we do as a church and is making these cycles. And is there a better way? And if there is why wouldn't we do what seems to be most effective with the time that God's given us and the energy that we have so. Yeah. So that got me really thinking about our role as a church. And I I think the church to answer your question. I mean, the church really needs to be about making disciples because that's what Jesus has called us to do. And I think I'm grateful for all the expressions of church. I pastor a church that we have Sunday worship. And we have a pro meetings and bible study, men's and women's groups and things like that. But we began to kinda change things here at the church to make it more conducive to making these cycles like idol worship we started. You know, having time for question and answer afterwards. We had time for training where I wouldn't preach as much which is not easy for pastors. And, you know, just preach, maybe fifteen minutes, and then rest of the time just spend training people modeling things like how to share the gospel with the gospel sharing tool, and then actually setting up tables all over the sanctuary and having people grow break up into pairs and practicing we started empowering people to learn to evangelize and learn how to make disciples, and so I just started thinking about church differently, and what discipleship meant and how we can equip disciple makers and get them rooted in God's word and into flow the Holy Spirit. And and so, yeah, I think all expressions of of church are important in what God is doing. And but yeah, I think we really need to have every every member of the body of Christ passionate about fulfilling Jesus's great commission. Yeah..
