Biden VP Search Narrows to Kamala Harris: Does She Want the Job?

"Democratic presidential nominee of Vice President Joe Biden could reportedly announced his pick for a running mate as soon as this week. California Senator Kamala Harris. API appears to be one of the leading candidates, but some are questioning if she AH wants to take the job or not for more key CBS News anchor Dan Mitchinson spoke with Carla Marinucci. Senior writer for Politico California playbook. Carla. What do you think? First of all, Do you think this could be Harris there? Even in the last days, Vegas betting circled at this point. Dan is being number one on Joe Biden's list. Who knows how that's gonna play out? But the fact is that Kamala Harris has been mentioned before. For other Possibilities in the administration, including attorney general, including possibly a nominee for the Supreme Court. Obama and during the Obama administration, she was reportedly asked if she wanted to be attorney general. She turned that down on the issue of the Supreme Court. She said She wanted to run for Senate at the time. But times have changed, And perhaps she might have changed her mind. She's getting advice from some Democrats that she might consider turning down the VP job because the attorney general job at this point could be more consequential. Willie Brown, who former San Francisco mayor said in his column on Sunday that he thought, uh, right right now, there's nobody left important than the vice president. I mean, as he said, Ask Mike Pence so that nobody thinks the vice president is a really influential job. But the attorney general, ah could have a long to do list ahead and that could include prosecuting Trump in the trump family law enforcement reform, Other issues related tio inspector generals and other things that the Trump administration has done and Democrats I think may be cheering that on, so we'll see how it plays out. But certainly Kamala Harris has a lot of different possibilities. But right now it looks like she may be at the top of the list or very close to it when it comes to Joe Biden, vice presidential nominee, But let me ask you this. I mean, Biden is gonna have a lot of California locked in the rest of the country, not necessarily a big fan of our state. Do you think a VP from here would hurt or help him then? That's been a debate Janet, But the fact is Kamala Harris has huge name recognition in the rest of the country. The You don't want the advice presidential nominee to do any harm. But in commonly Harrison's case, she could help in helping deliver some of those states where you need to rev up the Democratic base of progressive base. She had those followers right. She had a presidential campaign that brought her to all of those swing states. And so many voters know her out there more than some of the other women on the list. That doesn't mean, however, that people like Karen Bass, perhaps the House member from Los Angeles, Uh, Susan Rice, former ambassador and Tammy Duckworth's, uh, the senator from Illinois who is highly thought of this well couldn't be part of the mix as well. But how tough would this be for not only Biden but for Harris if she decides to run in four years if Biden's only in there for one or even in eight to move into the White House when we have a pandemic going on, and an economic recession? Yeah, you've actually hit on it and that some of the reasons why we've heard some doubts about Kamala Harris being mentioned the fact that she's ambitious. She clearly wants to run for president in some point And the go by in vice presidential nominee is in effect giving a leg up to whoever wants to do that It is effective primary in a way for the for the next presidential contest. Many Democrats would believe that that May hurt Joe Biden in some respects because they may want not wantto help. Comma. Harris is much when it comes to pushing legislation in Washington because they won't want to advance her chances. There's going to be a lot of Democrats who want to run for president, Uh, in 2024. So at this point, Yeah, Connell, Harris and her future plans and her future ambitions have all been part of the mix. It's why some Democrats say she may be the best choice for Joe Biden. Alright, Gotta run real quick. Will she be offered the the VP, And if she is, will she take it? He'll take it if she's offered, Will she be offered? That's the $1,000,000 question right now. That's Carla Marinucci, senior writer for political Oh California playbook.

Galapagos Island Shark Population In Danger From Overfishing

"Sharks in the Galapagos Islands are being decimated by fleets of fishing vessels many of them Chinese and that's bringing these vital creatures to the brink of extinction. Turn is a professor of biology at the. San Francisco Kiko in Ecuador and he's advocating for an expansion of protected waters in the area to save the sharks and he joins us now professor her welcome to the program. Thank you. It's great to be here. I understand fleets of international ships many of them. Chinese. Come to these waters every year and they're they're now what brings them. Well the waters off Galapagos and just in this region of very, very productive Galapagos islands are in a big obstacle in the middle of the ocean. So there's a deep cold water current that's flowing from the West and when it hits, the abacus platform is diverted at the surface and that creates a lot of productivity. So we get very rich fishing grounds and also fantastic biodiversity. How many ships are there? How many sharks are there? And you know what is this situation? Exactly as it stands at the moment, will galapagos is home to about thirty odd species of sharks, and some of those are critically endangered such as the scalloped hammerhead shark, and some of those are also highly migratory, the scalloped hammerhead, the Silky Shark, the whale shark, they all leave the borders of the marine reserve, and then they're subject to different levels of threat. So these vessels come into these waters and while they're fishing for other species, they catch these sharks in their nets. Yes depending on the method of fishing the longliners perhaps the vessels that we would be concerned about these are extensively fishing for tuna, but they will also catch several endangered shark species. During their fishing. And we know that if they do catch these species than they will retain them and keep them on board. So. These vessels though we should be clear aren't doing anything illegal they are allowed to fish with fishing. So why exactly are shark populations still taking a hit right? These vessels operating in international waters and depending on the fleet, they'll be operating under a regional fisheries organisations. The problem is that the species that we're trying to protect in Galapagos don't understand any of that. They go whether they WANNA go. As the problem is that once they leave the protective waters of the marine reserve, they're immediately under threat. There are hammerhead foraging grounds out in international waters and numbers have declined. There was a study cocoa sign, which is our neighbor in Galapagos, and they found that hammerhead sharks have declined by about forty five percent since the creation of the marine reserve, which is not the result you would hope for. So what you're advocating for an expansion of Ecuador's marine reserves, right that would help protect these areas of marine diversity and also. The. Shark. Species. I'm advocating on several levels I think first of all, we need to expand our reserve and this is something that we can do as a nation within our jurisdiction but I think we also need to play a more prominent role in the development of the Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction Agreement that is currently in the works, and this will allow for better protection for these species. Once they're in the high seas, it will even allow for the creation of open water or high seas, marine protected areas. So I think we to work on several levels. The international waters needs to be considered in a more conservation perspective than they have been until now. Alex. is a professor of biology at the. San Francisco, they keep in Ecuador Professor Arun. Thank you very much. Thank you.

Ethnic Studies: Born in the Bay Area From History's Biggest Student Strike

"Legislation earlier this summer that would require all incoming freshman at Cal State universities to taken ethnic studies class listener. Michael Variety asked our Bay curious team this question I've heard that there was actually a revolution in the Bay Area for an ethnic studies field. Is this true? And how did it happen? The short answer. Yes, it's true. Reporter assault A sonnet. Poor tells us how it went down during the longest student strike in US history. It was November of 1968. The US was 13 years into the Vietnam War. American soldiers hiking their way through the sweaty jungles of South Vietnam, searching for enemy Martin Luther King had been assassinated earlier that year, and the Black Panther Party demanded systemic change for black communities plagued by poverty and police brutality. That's what black students at San Francisco State wanted to bury. Proves to be a member ofthe last. This is Nesbitt Crutchfield. He started studying at San Francisco State in 1967 and soon joined the black student union. It was the very 1st 1 in the country. It was very clear to me that Black soon Union representative. Very progressive. Among black spoons at state among black students in the very but just a small percentage of black students went to SF State admission rates for minority students had dwindled down to just 4%. Even those 70% of students in the SF Unified School District for from minority backgrounds is a black person you expected for all intensive purposes. To be one of the very few black people in whatever classroom laboratory auditorium. The U. N was overwhelmingly white. Amidst that whiteness black students were hungry to study their own history. The black student union had been pushing the university to create a black studies department for nearly three years. But administrators resisted the idea. was an era of young people asking questions and want to transform their communities. Jason Ferreira is a professor in the Department of Race and Resistance at San Francisco State College of ethnic studies. And that impulse that That hunger to transform one's communities is actually what forms the basis of ethnic studies. It's around this time that Penny no. Okatsu was grappling with her own questions about race and identity. We want Asian Americans, then we were Orientals. An Oriental is a term that was imposed on us by the largest society, so starting to use the term Asian American was a way of taking back er. Our own destiny. Henny became a member of a student organization called the Asian American Political Alliance. It was just one of many ethnic student organizations popping up on campus and an early fall of 1968. These organizations banded together in formed a coalition, the Third World Liberation Front. And at that particular time, third world referred to the Non Aligned Countries are cultures in Asia, Africa and Latin America. It was synonymous with how we might use people of color today. English professor and Black Panther. George Murray was one of San Francisco state's most influential anti Vietnam organizers. Students loved Murray, but his outspoken politics didn't sit well with us of state administrators. The war in Vietnam is racist. That is the law that crackers like Johnson are using black soldiers and poor white soldiers of Mexican soldiers as dupes and fools to fight against people of color. In Vietnam. The board of trustees fired Murray over Comment like this one on November 1st 1968 5 days later, the black student union and the Third World Liberation Front joined together and went on strength in aspic, Crutchfield says Despite coming from different backgrounds, the strikers had a clear goal. I wanted to find out and be educated about ourselves, and we could not get that the nobody getting educated Initially, strikers did things like cherry bombs in toilets and check out tons of books at once in order to overwhelm the school's library system, But almost immediately, administrators invited police on campus. Jason Ferreira says they swarmed the school armed with five foot batons. Students responded by throwing rocks and cursing out the police. Police came down heavy hard, and they just began cracking skulls Strikers carried on anyway. Penny No. Okatsu was protesting on January 23rd 1969. In what many call the mass bust. Two lines of police came up and basically surrounded the over 500 people who were there for the rally and tracked all of the individuals who are part with that net police charged at students, Penny says it was one of the bloodiest and most frightening days of the entire strike. That was a military movement, literally a practice orchestrated military movement. Hundreds were arrested. Virtually all of the individuals arrested head Tio spend some jail time. There are real consequences to having participated in that event. It's up two more months. But eventually in March, administrators and strikers negotiated a deal after five months of protesting the school agreed to many striker demands. They promised to accept virtually all non white applicants for fall of 1969 and they agreed to establish a college of ethnic studies, the first in the country. Class is about communities of color. Ethnic studies is a way of embracing all of the cultures that make up not just this country, but with the world. And if we don't understand each other, how we're going to get along.

Getting Naked in San Francisco: A History

"Who other than reporter just plot check could take on this not safe for work assignment off she goes from. The state of California has indecent exposure laws, but those only apply if someone is being sexual like masturbating in public or intentionally offensive flashing someone. But what if you're just hanging out naked minding your own business? California leaves that up to local governments. For the first half of the Twentieth Century San Francisco didn't have public nudity laws. FRISKIN S- just didn't go nude much but then the sixties arrived and with it naked people. Some saw disrobing as a form of political artistic or personal expression college students got a taste for streaking and then there were the hippies. It's just delightful to be in I'll be in and that's what this is another exotic prank to add to a growing list of student oriented rites of Spring. It's sort of a happy happening for hippies in San Francisco hippies wanted to get closer to nature and they got naked a lot in golden gate park. Here's a quote from police chief. Thomas Hill it wasn't uncommon for a Gal that come out of the bushes there in the. Panhandle. Without a damn stitch and stand right in front of you with our hands up. I was out in the park in two started going to it on the lawn beside me just to remind you sex is sexual and as such already illegal according to the state. But still conservatives wanted tougher local laws to prevent this kind of behavior and they eventually got nudity banned in the parks. However, the rest of San Francisco was still fair game. As time passed other cities made public nudity illegal among them, San Jose, and Berkeley Berkeley's interesting because it's been mostly due to one naked Guy Andrew Martinez a student at the University of California Berkeley. Decided that American society is sexually repressed and in an effort to write things he began attending classes and going everywhere else in the nude save for a pair of sandals backpack people theorized that Martinez was able to go nude without major complaint for so long because he was easy on the is Martinez attempted shock tactic soon, became old news among his fellow students to me was simply the naked guy. Administrators however sent Martinez home to stay warm until his case can be considered by a student conduct board in Nineteen ninety-two Martinez was expelled showed up naked to his disciplinary hearing at UC. Then in one, thousand, nine, hundred, three here arrived naked to a Berkeley city council meeting members were offended and voted to make public nudity a misdemeanor crime. Back in San Francisco Nudist, enjoy their time in the Sun City developed a reputation for bodies in the buff especially at certain public events like folsom street fair a leather fetish festival or Beta breakers of rambunctious twelve k race who was an exhilarating experience people on the sidelines cheering. Go naked people go. All right. This is a rich Pasco in nineteen, ninety eight he started running naked in Beta breakers. Pasco is also the coordinator of the Bay Area Nature rests we're group of people who believe that the human body is God's divine creation nothing to be ashamed of, and that our interaction with Mother Nature is enhanced by removing the barrier of clothing. POSCO says it wasn't just public events where people could let it all hang out there also newt approved beaches in certain places where nudists would congregate lose a group of people in San Francisco who thought that going new to Jane Warner Plaza would be a good idea. It's that plaza in the Castro with a few benches where the streetcar stops, it's a little urban park. In this little urban park became an urban nude beach,

What is Metabolic Fitness?

"Everyone it's Martin from twenty minutes fitness. I'm here in San Francisco and I'm connected to levels founder Josh, Clementi Josh. Why don't you to be yourself? Martin's great to be on the show I mean on I'm josh, founder of levels and John Interested in bringing metabolic fitness to the mainstream rates, and so what does everyday mean? What is Metabolic Chiasso metabolism? Easy Way to think about metabolism is the set of cellular mechanisms that create energy from our food and environment that. So this is how we power the processes in our body ourselves bringing fuel and they turn it into energy and so metabolic fitness or metabolic health is when those systems are. Operating properly and you have often energy weight balanced performance without excess byproducts and so the way that that we're doing this is using continuous glucose monitoring hardware software analytics to close the loop between actions you take every single day in your daily life and the reactions, your body experiences in particular, the blood sugar response, your body experiences, and so this is this is the level, is that closing loops between action reactions the way that behavior change becomes eating, easy and obvious I, and so we're the first metabolic fitness company greenest market, and how do you define an excess byproduct like at what point you have too much nutrition what is it exactly? So, the some of the easy ways to think about this art glucose itself. So this is a it's sugar essentially, this is a molecule that is the primary energy molecule in the human body so that metabolism functionality that we talked about is driven primarily off of glucose sugar and fat, and so when you're consuming sugar, it releases into the bloodstream and You know this is actually just tipping carbohydrates while they sugars that interest the bloodstream, and so this triggers a cascade of processes, hormonal processes, and those tell your body, how to op sort of appropriate that Lucas, into the cells for for their useless contrived things like weight gain can. Be for muscle expenditure for energy using mechanical loads on a commute for cognitive function in the brain. But those laws get too high. You actually have an inflammatory situation because Lucas is a very reactive molecule it produces what are called free radicals, inflammatory cytokines. I'll sixteen alpha you know these different molecule byproducts of glucose reactions that actually are very inflammatory and can cause breakdown of tissues and skin glaciation, which is right leads to Browning of the skin and wrinkles. All these byproducts that ultimately are are not good for us. So there's a fine balance and glucose is meant to be kept in tight control and that's what we mean by byproducts. Normally unless you have diabetes, you should not have resistance to insulin release right so how does that really matter van for you know everyday use that a non diabetic being that we have been since glucose is the primary energy source for for the modern person we've studied the Post Disease State of Glucose for for many decades. So this is called diabetes typically type two diabetes which a lifestyle driven illness that sets in your body can no longer respond to insulin you can't use glucose in. Your bloodstream effectively, it gets really high toxic levels. So we studied that quite a bit but the thing is that all of us across the metabolic spectrum from healthy to to less healthy are all using net glucose and so there is an optimization function here where because these mechanisms are linear you know it's not it's not like a a threshold where you cross over it, and then suddenly you're unhealthy that's kind of how start thought about a me to think about this metabolic fitness meaning the choices. We make require focus effort and repetition to achieve optimization. So it doesn't matter where you fall on the spectrum metabolic health de Choices you're making today are affecting your hormonal cascade causing qualitative experiences in causing quantifiable to potentially detrimental effects like weight gain, where's performance exercise cognitive decline sort of all of the things that we struggle with our day-to-day are affected by the choices we're making that we don't really connect because we don't have that close loop system. So now by by showing that the person who. Doesn't have diagnose metabolic dysfunction. You can optimize your choices daily see the data in real time, make better ones, and then achieved this sort of metabolic control where instead of having these this roller coaster of spikes and crashes in energy issues, and again wait gained the rollercoaster. We all ride day today that we kind of use our emotions feel way through. You cannot have data and you can use that to achieve this the state of balanced control and you know lower flatter smoother continual on metabolic control.

Round up to the nearest dollar, donate the different to Ronald McDonald house charities or use exact change on cash transactions. There is a coin shortage in the US right now.

Especially in contention on Sundays their spirited simultaneous charges. Electrified Augusta National in the final round of the two thousand nine masters, even if they both alternately faltered, they're pairing three years later at Pebble Beach where Mickelson uncommonly crushed woods in the final round created similar buzz friendly reminder about Friday's much-hyped pay per view match. This is not the same. Not even close woods and Mickelson will play head to head for nine million dollars winner-take-all, and that alone will prompt a good number of people to forego over nineteen ninety nine they will see a contrived exhibition not memorable competition on a grant stage. This is November in Las Vegas. Not April and Augusta. It just doesn't matter. Sports captivates us. Because the games are meaningful authentic. Well, maybe not in baseball steroid era and unpredictable, but everything about Friday's made for television event seems forced scripted and even a bit slimy. Take several cringe worthy moments during Tuesday's promotional news conference woods and Mickelson who for years had zero use free other tossed out flowery compliments as if they were lifelong best buddies near the end of the session Mickelson said without laughing. It will be a major championship intensity on Friday, then to complete this theater of the absurd. Woods and Mickelson complied with a request for a stoic face to face staredown like two heavyweight boxers. Please Friday's matches about money naturally. A vehicle for people who are crazy rich to become even richer, the two best golfers of their generation are trying to squeeze out more revenue before they fade from public view. Mickelson is forty eight and woods turns forty three next month. They each one a PD tour event this year for the first time since two thousand thirteen making. For compelling stories, especially with woods, given his fall from grace and repeated back surgeries, but it was telling when Justin Thomas the world's fourth-ranked player said there was zero percent chance.

But nowadays, it's missed the Mark a little bit, fair point woods and Mickelson squaring off in two thousand five six or seven with tiger dominating the PGA tour and Phil finally winning an occasional major might have resonated more. Plus, they really disliked each other back, then that's one fascinating confounding element of this whole thing that unlikely of Lucien of the tiger Phil relationship, the tension traces to their junior golf days in southern California. When Mickelson reportedly looked down on the young, prodigy and woods grew resentful. Sports Illustrated's Alan ship once told of woods in his amateur days. Watching the masters on television as one of Michael's? Typically, aggressive putz scooted farther and farther past the whole would simply said role. They're infamous writer Cup pairing in two thousand four widen the divide but woods clearly softened in recent years. Maybe he really was humbled by his personal travails. And by the injuries that limited him to one official tour start between August two thousand fifteen and January two thousand eighteen Mickelson accelerated the thought and their relationship by sending encouraging text messages while woods recovered from his back surgeries woods responded by doing the same. As Mickelson chased victory at the Mexico championship in March now curiously there, essentially business partners making promotional spots appearing together at news conferences, leaving open the possibility of more matches. If this one proves successful. They're throwing lots of gimmicks at the wall and hoping some stick woods Mickelson and their caddies. We'll we're microphones during Friday's which could reveal lively insightful banter or more scripted stage nonsense. The telecast will carry a strong gambling flavor.

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. On warriors, ride and raiders road. All the news that fits the bottom of the birdcage by Scott, Osler what the warriors must do. Now is twisted the narrative, so. What the warriors must do. Now is twisted the narrative, so the so called turmoil and discord is all in the minds of critics in haters and the attackers only strengthened the warriors team bond. Draymond green is the perfect man to lead this counterattack. This has been bothering me and admittedly. I'm not strong on payroll economics. The raiders have three first round draft picks. First rounders, get hefty contracts won't signing three first rounders forced the raiders to scrimp on the rest of their roster. The Mavericks are a lottery team, but I fear any team that has shooting coach who can raise the Andre Jordan's free-throw percentage from fifty eight last season two eighty two. Now that weird update in my column speculating that DeMarcus cousins might be a better fit for the warriors. And Kevin Durant. If it's one or the other I should have noted that even if Durant leaves it's doubtful. The warriors could resign cousins. He would have to accept a. Token, raise to six point four million dollars at least ten million under his projected market value. But the fun talking point remains the thirties must alert the ravens that a quarterback who runs will not work in today's NFL rookie quarterback. Lamar Jackson ran twenty seven times for one hundred seventeen yards Sunday in the ravens win Jackson. Didn't take a knee during the anthem. So he likely will remain employed. Hey, raiders, if the Coliseum doesn't work out for you next season. Why not take your show on the road? It would toughen you up Vegas has already made you two soft go global Mexico City London Beijing Moscow. Your theme song could be Pancho and lefty live and on the road. My friend was going to make you free and clean. Now. You wear your skin like iron your breaths as hard as kerosene.

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Could Draymond green versus Kevin Durant. Make the warrior stronger, Draymond green might have thrown his team into momentary crisis this week. But he also threw down the gauntlet to the rest of the league on Thursday after a team shoot around in Houston. If you're one of those other twenty nine teams in the league, you've gotta beat us. Green said in his first statement since being suspended for his argument with Kevin Durant. We not going to beat us. We're going to continue to do what we do. If you think you saw something before good luck with us. Now, we're not going to crumble off of an argument any may be right because the fairytale that the warriors have been living for the past few years is made up of living breathing ego driven players who are individually worth GDP of small countries. So of course, there are behind the scenes disputes and clashes this drama may have opened a much-needed steam valve may have released. Some of the pressure may have put everyone's cards on the table instead of having questions of free agency and player surpremacy lurking. In the background. This may make everyone take a hard look at themselves. Do we wanna be individual countries? Or do we want to show strength in numbers? Just us. This whole week has had the feeling of a past the area dispute Joe Montana versus DVR with a hint of adolescent, girl. Twilight mania team Jacob or team Edward do. We have to pick sides do the teammates have to pick sides. Probably not the members of the team have been living with these personalities and issues for longer than they've been exposed publicly the ability of green and Durant to walk into practice together on Thursday, talk fist-bump shoot together and play together against the rockets. Doesn't mean this is over not by a long shot. Green has reportedly appealed his fine. His harsh punishment this week by Steve Kerr and general manager. Bob Myers suspended one game without pay may continue to not him. Why was he punished so severely by leaders who have gone out of their way to have his back? It leads one to believe that Monday nights. Outburst wasn't an isolated incident. And that green has been pushing the envelope for awhile. Maybe even been warned repeatedly the encored incident that unleash this storm wasn't particularly noteworthy green was in the right on the court Duran looked selfish on the court. But it was the word set on the bench that revealed the Fisher. It's no secret. I'm emotional. Green said I wear my emotions on my sleeve. Sometimes it gets the best of me, and it doesn't work in my favor. But I live with that because works to the good more as my resume shows though, he vowed not to change on Thursday. Green was far more open and conciliatory in his comments than Durant was the other night. Durant may continue to carry a grudge. That's something. He's pretty good at basketball teams are studies and collective psychology. And the warriors have always had potentially combustible elements. Durant notoriously has thin skin. Green is an expert at finding the thinnest part of anyone skin to see if he can Pierce it. Both men are elite grudge holders and go out of their way to find things to feel. Victimized about to fuel them. I've had my own standoff with green I didn't understand why I was being frozen out. He was angry over something. I wrote and our relationship was initially rectified through a sitdown orchestrated by a warriors employee emotional and intense green is a warrior through and through a combination player assistant, general manager, welcome wagon Durant. In contrast is aloof. He is both by his arrival through free agency and his personality. More of an outsider green probably more than anyone else on the team has been irritated by the sense. That Durant is holding teams future hostage to his pending free agency. I've read a lot is this the end of the run did I ruin it. Or did I force Kevin to leave green said at the end of the day, whatever Kevin decides to do what clay decides we had great years together. I support everyone wholeheartedly one hundred percent as a man as a human being you've got the right to do what you wanna do with your life. Yes. That was the past tense. We had great years. Together. So maybe Durant does leave and maybe green will alternately be part of the reason. But maybe as most people are beginning to assume Durant was going to leave anyway. And this incident just got the issue out in the open put it on the dinner table where the family can deal with it. But this season isn't the past tense. It's the present. And maybe green is right instead of being gleeful that the warriors are in crisis. Maybe the rest of the league has to be even more worried about them now and Killian is a San Francisco Chronicle columnist Email a Killian SF chronicle dot com Twitter at an Killian.

This year may be in for an unpleasant surprise when they file their twenty teen taxes, whether they know it or not most Americans have already been getting a little more in their paychecks since late February or early March when the Internal Revenue Service reduced the withholding rate for federal income taxes to account for some but not most of the sweeping changes in last year's tax cuts jobs act for people with simple situations the paycheck Bob should roughly equal their tax cut. But if they were expecting it to arrive in the form of a bigger refund than they got last year, they might be disappointed for those with more complex situations. The extra money they've been getting in their paycheck could exceed what they're do under the act they could wind. Up with a much smaller refund or bigger balance do than last year when they file their twenty eighteen return, the IRS has been urging people to estimate their twenty eighteen taxes. And if necessary file a new form w four with their employer. That's the form payroll processors used to determine how much tax to withhold from worker paychecks.

Like almost all football teams in the postseason. SHC needs to remain patient and sharp getting in practice time could be a challenge this week. That was another reason McLachlan was hoping the Irish could get in the game. This is the third time. The game was rescheduled on the way down the kids were definitely focused on the game.

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Good news for as ballpark plans. But don't pop the champagne yet by Scotto slur for sports. Good news for as fans, I think I asked team president Dave cavalier. Do the ace still expect to pick a ballpark site. By the end of this year's your promised. The answer delivered by Catherine anchor team vice president of communications and community. We are still on track to announce our plan by the end of the year. That's big v as need to make that pick the Coliseum site or Howard terminal on schedule if they hope to open their ballpark for the twenty twenty three season. Kvass update is good news considering the as recent complaints about lack of response to their efforts to negotiate for use of the Coliseum property. Don't pop the champagne corks yet with any as ballpark talk. There usually are huge gaps in information and ugly. Historical references. I have no doubt that the as will announce their side by the end of the. A year says longtime pro sports executive Andy Dollah JR. My favorite skeptic. They did. So in two thousand six for Cisco field in two thousand nine for deer. It unstained in two thousand eleven for victory court in two thousand thirteen for Coliseum city and in two thousand seventeen for parole to college rim shot please all at stake is the future of the team in Oakland any major delay or setback in ballpark plans. We'll have a domino effect if the as fall behind or off their twenty twenty three opening timetable that is likely to collide with their promise to goose team payroll to a respectable level thus jeopardizing their hold onto the stars of the future. Like, Mike Chapman stars of the future. Tend to align themselves with teams that have a future Chapman just finished his first full season in the big leagues and to be in his prime in twenty twenty three. If ballpark plans lag or fall through Chapman's future in Oakland grows. Him think positive as fans and ignore Dollah? Who tells me I'll meet you at the gondola in two thousand twenty three.

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Oakland mayor on what went wrong with the raiders by Scotto slur from sports. The happy feet raiders are nearing the end of their most recent stay in Oakland, and who's to blame for owner. Mark Davis moving his team to Las Vegas. Not Oakland says mayor Libby, chef I had a recent phone conversation with chaff who is up for reelection Tuesday, and is considered the favourite. The interview was regarding the as and their search for a site for a new ballpark in Oakland. When our as discussion ended, I said, can I ask you a raiders question? They should not have traded Khalil Mack chef shot back the curse of the MAC. I think the raiders are suffering from the MAC curse shaft who was elected mayor in two thousand fourteen was born and raised in Oakland and said, she's always cheered for the local teams through her first three years in office. Shaft tried to negotiate with the raiders on a new stadium at the Coliseum site in April last year, the raiders announced their NF. Fell sanctioned decision to move to Las Vegas. My question to the mayor. Do you think the raiders made a good faith effort to stay in Oakland? Hell no shaft shot back unequivocally. No. There was no good faith there at all. So owner Mark Davis seemed dead set on moving his team to Vegas deadset. No effort whatsoever. I can't speak to the time before I was mayor. And I want to recognize that the raiders I think when I came in as mayor. There was a lot of years of legitimate frustration that they were feeling but during my time as mayor no good faith efforts were made. No every plan through the years has been complicated. By the fact, that the Coliseum land is owned jointly by the city and county. And by the fact that the raiders a showed little or no interest in working with one. Another also any deal, including proposals with outside developers would have required using part of the site for commercial development which Davis opposed but chef was aggressive in pursuing a deal between the time. She took office. In January twenty fifteen and Davis final decision to move to Las Vegas in January twenty sixteen the mayor brought plans and ideas to the table, but the raiders were not eager participants. I Ashraf whether it bothered her that she and Oakland officials have been cast in the role of villains by Davis. And some of his team's fans for not trying hard enough to keep the team. You know, honestly, I have been pleasantly surprised chef said, I think that actually the residents of Oakland had been refreshingly supportive, and understanding that the city took a principled stand. And while we were all sad that we lost our beloved team. We did. So in principle, I actually have been encouraged by the amount of understanding, and in many ways support that I got from how I handled the matter chef is probably getting even more support these days as the raiders are in freefall with they want a seven record and head coach Jon Gruden presiding over what looks more each day like a complete rebuild the benefits of which won't be much. Good to Oakland fans since the raiders are likely to move. Out after the season when they're Coliseum. Lease expires. I mentioned a shaft that Davis had a few years ago that he would be happy to build a no frills stadium in Oakland for under a billion dollars. And now his team's share of the new Vegas stadium. Costs will probably approach what he would have spent to stay in Oakland shaft said how we were going to finance the new stadium in Oakland was through more development on the giant surface parking lot, which he refused to give up a single parking space. And I understand that they're not going to have the parking spaces at the Vegas stadium. So again, I think there is ample evidence that there was not a good faith effort to stay because the deal that we presented with Ronnie Lott was an absolutely viable shuffle ready deal that the raiders walked away from did that shocker. Yes. Yes. I shouldn't say I was completely shot because the raiders had stonewalled for the entire time that I was mayor, but the NFL allowed them to do that when their own league policy state that they're going to give the hallmark it every chance to be successful. That was surprising. And that was very disappointing. The raiders through team president Mark Bayden declined to respond to shafts comments. Multiple sources told me that Davis rejected any plan or proposal at the Coliseum site. If that plan called for one less parking space than is. Currently there Coliseum site has about eight thousand parking spaces, the new Las Vegas stadium will have fewer than three thousand spaces on site. According to the Las Vegas sun. There will be fourteen thousand spaces offsite with most fans shuttling to the stadium. The lot proposal backed by predominantly African American group of investors and initially given NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's stamp of approval would have set aside fifteen acres for the as if they chose to stay at the Coliseum site. The group plan to build hotels and restaurants on the site. The city would kick in two hundred million dollars for infrastructure. The raiders did not actively participate in those negotiations. Oakland ficials have said that before the raiders announced their moved to Las Vegas. The city had not been able to meet direct. With Davis for more than a year in a dear John letter to Oakland. Goodell said a key sticking point was Oakland refusal to tell the as to take a hike. Davis has said that what finalized his decision to move to Vegas was Oakland tripling the raiders rent at the Coliseum in early twenty sixteen after the league shot down the raiders attempt to move to Los Angeles. So the team owner who was aggressively attempting to move his team to LA was angered by the perceived disloyalty of Oakland and its mayor.

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Warriors must pay forty million dollars in Reno debt to Oakland. Alameda County judge rules by Megan Cassidy from sports the Golden State Warriors must pay off the estimated forty million dollars in remaining debt incurred by Oakland and Alameda County for renovations to oracle arena. And arbitrator has ruled a nineteen ninety six demolition and redesign of the arena's interior cost about one hundred fifty million dollars to be paid over a thirty year period since then the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum authority has collected an annual payment from the basketball team of seven point four million dollars to help pay off the debt, but warriors are departing for San Francisco in twenty nineteen and team leaders had planned to stop making payments at that time attorneys for the city and county argued the NBA champions were trying to scuttle the remaining debt and both sides agreed to let an arbitrator make the final call. We are pleased by today's ruling and believe that it's the warriors not the Oakland and Alameda County taxpayers who should repay this debt. Call ASEAN authority chair and Alameda County. Supervisor Nate Miley said in a statement, we issued these bonds in nineteen ninety six in collaboration with the team and with an agreement in place. We've simply asked the warriors to honor their agreement. The disputes came down to the interpretation of nineteen ninety six contract signed by the warriors and the Coliseum authority. The joint powers entity created to finance and manage the sports complex. That's also home to the as and raiders essentially, the disagreement was over the side's interpretation of the word terminates the paragraph at issue says that if the warriors terminate the agreement prior to twenty twenty seven they are obligated to pay the outstanding project that an court filing attorneys hired by the team said that Klaus would apply only if the warriors were actually terminating the contract, rather they said they are allowing the agreement to expire in June twenty nine. Eighteen as they depart for San Francisco judge Rebecca westerfield, the arbitrator in the case noted in her ruling that warriors president Rick welts testified that the team's decision to leave. The arena was a deliberate choice. This action by the warriors deliberately electing not to exercise an option and thus bringing the license agreement to an end can be construed as a termination for any reason westerfield wrote and her Thursday ruling attorneys for the warriors and the Coliseum authority were made aware of the decision Monday. This was an after the fact attempt by the warriors to rewrite the party's deal, and it would have left the people of Oakland. Alameda County holding the bag Daniel pursell and attorney for the city and county said in a statement warrior spokeswoman Lisa Goodwin said the team obviously disagreed with the arbitrators interpretation of the license agreement. Of course, we are reviewing our options at this time. She said in a statement. But as we've always said, we will fulfil any debt obligations that we owe.
