"The other was a scrum an A. S. M. A. R. rugby game this involved university California Berkeley and Arkansas state in on that field of play was a young man who was known by many in this audience Robert Taylor what distinguished distinguished himself as an athlete and a scholar a Jesuit high school moving on to cal as an aspiring young of student and an athlete certainly blessed with a impressive physical presence is six foot five two hundred and thirty some pounds I'm guessing and he was told after that his family was told first of all his other of the prospects for the future or not good it was a very very serious injury he anchored and they have ultimately what looked as though his is hopes for survivor had materialize survival I should say had materialized I usually never walk again but I'm here to tell you that Robert has overcome tremendous odds and that he is right here with me in studio and by the way I got a welcome Robert great to have you here yeah I think from me thank you for being here and thank you for a being such an incredible model for a body else to follow I mean it's that I I I mean I'm sure you've had some tough days along the way certainly but your you seem like you guys never had a bad day in your life and I know I know the horrors of your your injury and that the news your your parents undoubtedly suffered die every bit as much as you did at the prospect of perhaps losing you completely and then saying this this young man in whom they had so much pride suffer to this extent which looked at the very least like a cheap shot on the field of play yeah I don't know that's ever been resolved now as it is now it is what it is but I know that what was it about a year later you actually managed to walk onto the field and got a standing ovation from the after after the fans in the standoff edible yeah that's absolutely correct yeah it's crazy no the spinal cord injuries what happened to me your odds are terribly law I mean we're talking three percent or less that you move anything let alone walking again so when that happened that is actually may sixth two thousand seven say I'm sorry yeah yeah it's one of those M. mines but anyways yeah very illegal move something that should have been called should have been done but it was done it wasn't called in laying there on that field thinking on my future like I mean am I gonna get my degree and have a family you know helpful both my kids some walk so did you say you knew where you rattle a right right away that this was not just a it wasn't a shock this was a newer and you are paralyzed this was bad yeah I remember being in this illegal hold and kind of thinking okay I can fight through this I got most of this I mean this is the national championship I need to drive this thing in but I fell down kind of close my eyes and grit my teeth and fill this crunch in my neck immediately just proof can't feel anything can't move anything I'm just laying there doing everything I can to move but I'm not even gonna twitch and dom I immediately knew right then that this is really serious this is not good and your freshman of the time sophomore a sophomore yeah and now advanced has a time you will graduate this may yep that's the plan your drinks that you believe me there's doesn't everybody but yet but if you will actually walk across the stage there are graduation in may which is pretty incredible it really is I mean this stuff like doesn't happen and I'm taking anything for granted you know I I've really had to earn this it's been a lot of re have a lot of therapy but getting it getting into a Walker right now I can do that on my own as long as someone's holding it things that on day one doctor said Robert forget it never happens happens this is a really exciting moment for me I've worked a lot to give this degree and do it the way I I'm so so to whom or what do you attribute your success man I mean I think you lost me this all the time like Robert how you do it like what gets you up in the morning what gets a smile on your face and it's because I want for myself and I want to for others in the beginning of this thing I want to walk for myself you know surprise selfish desire away I don't think that's bad no haven't but when I have all these people started reaching out to me saying you know Robert I'm getting up into achieving my goals and my life is so much better by reading your story making these things happen I'm like this thing isn't even about me anymore it's about them I can't stand bad and complain about it on because I am accountable to them I have to do this for them so it's the selfless desire now to really do something good with this world and take my challenge and turn it into an opportunity to change someone's life so just kind of summarize on a bear the lead here in in a total of five years are all things that looking up to mystic at this point you will have finished your undergraduate degree at cal and that's arrive year time frame is about the norm is it not for nowadays yeah yeah the the four year graduation especially out of the school I got Howard's **** are impacted on that's pretty impressive especially with the year free have I had to take off on four academic years no five raw yeah it's pretty big feet did you were there times if that Hey it's not worth the effort I'm just gonna coast my best days are behind me and I'm gonna never happened no absolutely not I thought this is terrible you know this is a living nightmare one that you're waiting to wake up and you're just not certainly but I got one life you know I got one life and if the majority of my life is going to be spent battling out of this thing so be it you know I've still want to get my degree these are still things that I can do and I'm gonna push my limits as far as I can take advantage of this one life I got and every day I can on this earth it's a gift at one time it wasn't certain there's nothing guaranteed right on so now to have that in my pocket you know Sir so as you went through the progression after the I think the worst nightmare one could imagine in in terms of it being going from from where you were frankly and by the way you didn't just land where you were you work hard and achieve the I mean you were blessed with some good fortune to that I was not but but you did you you worked hard to get got there and that day all of a sudden have as a result by the way you're not engage in any force contact you weren't doing something stupid you write sober and alert and on the field to play with their roles are prohibit the kind of injury and other kind of behavior that causes injury and you find yourselves just zap down to ten nothing will yeah I think an environment in which many people would be overcome by despair and so there's got to be something that kept you so motivated and so focused on improving your conditions and I think that's that's something if we could tap into and that and share that with others many people who just frankly can't get out of their own way and they are they're being given all kinds of reasons to to accept who they are what they have when in reality I can say they never had a bad day they could they could be a thriving so if that if if your experience your motivation your drive could be shared with others I think and that's a tremendous opportunity for others to to to improve their lot in life enormously yes so I get a lot of questions for you gonna take a break take care of some other business but want to get that some specific in terms of what it is you want to do because you do have a very very unique experience and I can just envision people who think you know the odds are stacked against me I have a lousy home wife my parents were nice to me my one or the other was was abusive bad things happened I don't get to go to the best schools but I'm willing to believe that there are certainly times when you would have jade Frank places with those people in recent years and you would have overcome all that and then just fine so I want to pick your brain as to what it is that that that that others could die could learn from you and take that to their own improvement the biggest thing that this injury gave me was perspective so I live by the saying I try to share with everyone and it's compared to what so are you in my life right now I can get up and I'm not gonna hop out of bed it's gonna take me about forty five minutes to throw on some clothes and some shoes you get to be my age as they want yeah but I can think of someone like shoot you know they just take me two minutes yeah but there was also a time when I can do that all right impossible so compared to what not just in my own situation but that of others and I think if things get really tough and and I'm tired and I don't know if I want to do the seven am work on this is this is too early well compared to what this is too hard compared to what that perspective really drives me very good with a quick break we're coming right back with more conversation with Robert Taylor do not go away there's much more to.

"The adult in class the university California Berkeley cal where me young students now is and it's as if the student directed curriculum to teach people the the the basics of life these are extraordinarily bright people who were studying at cal especially in the the fields of study that represent the people who put this curriculum together but what is it well along the way how have things changed in such a way as such it such a degree that we have some kids off to school American because let's be honest at this point my life they're still kids going to a school seventeen years of age sometimes eighteen for others that says pretty young person and if they haven't had that experience of the haven't balance the checkbook if they hadn't done all those basic fundamental things that I think people were doing a much much much larger numbers in past generations then I think there is a need for it but it would be wiser if we got some of that stuff if if just a young people were encouraged as they get to the point where there may be inclined to get a job which is very very good for them into try to to start doing other things would be to their advantage are you missing out on something by having people with such exceptional intellect not being prepared to deal with life yep that's nine one six ninety one fifteen thirty long distance callers eight hundred eight three four fifteen thirty also curious as to where you think this is a bad thing or good thing it might might be boy five is that it's it's regrettable but the need exists but because it does exist I think it is a good thing I was checking with Brian in Sacramento Brian good afternoon welcome to the conversation thank you for holding on Sir John thanks for taking my call you every day and but boy this is one that I just really have to chime in on I graduated from high school in nineteen eighty four and I learned to home economics and other classes in this high school high school how to do all this stuff you know that's when they contact we we had metal shop with Iraq would drop we're all right you have different career paths that students yeah people could take classes wires that not everybody is designed to go to college absolutely true there's no doubt and from what I'm under I have friends that are in the in the construction trades enter sector huge shortage of skilled labor young people that want to go into the construction business because now we have a government Mr real risk education system that I think that everybody needs to go to college that is not the case we have we have a shortage of skilled labor there's no doubt about it and and I have I can so I can see multiple facets of that that particular observation I I do absolutely believe that that not everybody is suited to go to college and it's not if it's not over at indicator or representation of a person's Ryan like an absolutely is not some people just more academically inclined and others are that perhaps inclined to be self taught but I will say this if if you want to get into a construction feel which I think it face it we all need that this society needs that but I also they can be smart for a young person to all who gonna if you're gonna pursuing a career in construction to also pursue some of some of the administrative function of it either through formal curriculum or through experience all learning because at some point you're gonna go out on a day like this and your back's gonna hurt your knees are gonna hurt and it's gonna be a little bit warm for people have they been doing that kind of work for twenty five years to continue so it's nice to have a plan to transition into something else I I I and I totally agree with you one of my car I was just using that as it does look down below how we're not training our young kids you know that there are other career paths that they can go into that don't require a college education and so here we have to have a curriculum at college to UC Berkeley that for people to learn how to balance a checkbook we were taught destiny junior high school high school back when you know I was a student anyway that's that's kind of the point that I wanted to observations on they were lose not on some of the things I think there are other life skills and exposure and things that were not that that young people are not getting in sufficient numbers because of the the changes in the way we live our lives in a course pushing kids to to attain high academic standing yeah I don't think it's a bad thing but you drive that too hard to the elimination of other experience a learning I think is a mistake I do appreciate the call very much Brian let's check in with that Max in Sacramento Max good afternoon welcome to the conversation thanks for holding on Hey Cheryl good afternoon I think I think these bridges two different things first of all I got to give props to the dudes students that recognize the fact that there are some that need to happen and I would have to say that this should put that California teachers association on notice that it takes students to identify gaps in an education you were like the last caller said should be taught in a hole that class nobody uses checkbooks anymore so that dynamic is kind of change but I think the I've I've worked with all the stocks of of business for a long time and I've worked with people that were literally rocket scientists who could operate a fax machine I had trouble hand writing just like doctor you know he's hyper smart people where they spend their sole focus of bonds you know right when that decorated awkwardness and other skills that you and I would consider commonplace where is it in in in a it overlaps between different things like I I wouldn't have that I don't have the acting and that would relate to law enforcement lingo like you would first day but at the same time I would I would argue that my ID been around certain parts of technology business are probably light years ahead of you if you're gonna get out to you that that's not even an almost right you would leave me in the dust right yeah but I yes I think I think the this should be a a flag for you know maybe some of these high schools there that maybe active base excellence Dan have a class that says yeah this is this is what happens when you get your first job and why money gets taken out absolutely I had is that is a tremendous life learning experience for a young person to get that paycheck when they think they're gonna be pay thirteen Bucks an hour to get the check in is not in close to thirteen Bucks now because a lot of pain and then you learn you learn what that means in terms of withholding then versus payment on April fifteenth and all that goes with it so I think it is yes it's at the need for life lessons is huge and I appreciate the call very much Max got a break for news we're coming right back with more conversation right.

"Day got a lot of things to get through this afternoon can have a guest on the program in a bit junk fall from the taxpayers group is here to talk about some of the concerns confronting the state of California got an example of that that that data is it's everywhere I feel feel conflicted and I feel easy about even discussing it but it's real serious topic of conversation and it screams war for some level of attention and it has to do with the biggest pension system in the nation that a courses CalPERS a California public employees retirement system new data out now out of a cal was in university California Berkeley study disclosing the fact that that California is pension system is just grotesquely underfunded and median pension costs for local governments have grown a nearly six times as much in California is the rest of the country over a decade that is all coming out of this new data compiled that you by UC Berkeley professor medium pension costs went up seven thousand twenty two dollars per employee and a selection of cities seven thousand twenty two dollars per employee thus a coarser for cities counties and special districts in California from two thousand seven to two thousand sixteen that compares with the national median increase of loom twelve hundred and sixteen dollars that's is still time to change but you can see the doctor there on the six thousand dollar range and that's according to Serra as Andrea and associate professor of public policy his clothes that yesterday in Sacramento the rising pension costs have consumed an increasing share of local government revenues absorbing an additional two percent of general revenues over the ten year stretch in California compared to a national median of about seven tenths of a percent as all of the same data so her point is local governments are being affected by high pension costs and there's no doubt about it she says is not the future is now and if you think I well I'm not in cal person doesn't affect me well it does that's my point that's the reason for my concern and love this could disclose right up front for the people who have paid into CalPERS or even if they didn't pay any cal pers of it was part of their benefits as employees of the state or cities or counties or special districts are part of cal pers the in the they were promised this yeah I I I I understand concerns exists there and I do have concerns for them but I understand that the burden of this shortfall goes ultimately to the taxpayers because this is protected by language in the state constitution of subject subject to legal challenge I don't know how likely a legal challenge would be but if you have people have been living their lives working for thirty or forty years in public employment and they've been promised that on X. date based upon X. years of service and X. age they will be entitled to whatever Peniche at percentage of their arm their salary there were earning oftentimes formulated at the single has your employment sometimes said there there are and disparities there sometimes it's an average of three highest years whatever the case may be if they think that's coming and they live their life based upon that there is it that that is a reasonable expectation as part of a contract into which they have entered with the CalPERS and the entity that employed them so it's it's a real serious deal in debt for people who haven't do don't have a pension at all you may well be the ones that are most significantly impacted by this because you're gonna have to pay for it because the state and the cities and counties and special districts were part of this system **** that obligation that is sacrosanct that the state of California will have to pay those pensioners before they pay their current light bills so her analysis included data that the day involved four hundred forty two local governments around the country including some of from every state and twenty six cities and counties in California results are in working paper form and have yet to be peer reviewed after publication of but she suggests results could fill a gap in public policy debates says most researchers have focused on pension plans in their performance rather than a local government impacts I think she's absolutely right on there you see cities and counties and special districts up announced at a California many of whom have moved toward advancing at the ballot box increased as sales taxes or other taxes oftentimes not identifying a specific purpose to to a result in the lower threshold to clear it does a simple majority to pass the the threshold necessary to impose that tax but with their concern has been and is and will be at the ability to to meet that that pension funding gap so as she indicates that her data set is on unlike any of that has ever been done before and that you is uniquely suited to the task of assessing the on ground experiences of American cities and counties as a part of her data she found correlations between patching cost increases and union activity in collective bargaining which is more common in California obviously than most other states so from two thousand seven to two thousand sixteen per pension costs for local governments with less than fifty percent union membership increased by a median of seven hundred forty dollars with that while those with more than fifty percent increased by a median of twenty nine hundred and fifty dollars so you can see the collective bargaining is a big big part of it is not be down on the employees understand where they're coming from but frankly that well is going to run dry the only question is when and how will it affect your life and how will it affect the lives the lives of those pensioners CalPERS administers pensions for many local governments in California along with state workers' pensions like most pensions around the country CalPERS doesn't have enough money to cover all of its current and future obligations to public workers the three hundred and seventy seven billion dollar fund is the nation's largest it has about seventy percent of the assets that would need to pay all those obligations leaving it with what is known as an unfunded liability and course there has been I think an abundance of optimism in calculating the costs and trends and what the fund is likely to to see by way of growth there have been there's been a AB a change in attitude and philosophy that that actually because the system to divest of those things that many thought were we're not consistent with their own personal values and beliefs such as investing in tobacco a fire arms ammunitions things that were controversial I think there's that talk even of of staying out of the investments that wouldn't that would not be compliant with the the states general philosophies with regard to religion and that marriage and things of that nature what you're talking about find a system that has to be paid I mean that there's no getting around it so in recent years there have been some change in terms of the make up of the pers board and I think there is an effort in there some success in moving into a a more business my did more growth minded effort in terms of investments but it's still a major problem fact is looks as though it's getting worse she goes on to conclude the California pension plans are dangerously under funded are the result of overly generous benefit promises wishful thinking and an unwillingness to plan prudently that is also the finding of California's little Hoover commission reported back in two thousand eleven after the Great Recession had deeply affected CalPERS funded status so do you think about this do you think it's time that the the grown ups in the room come to terms with the fact that this needs to be addressed you want to see our leadership in the state of California and the legislative branch and the executive branch come to terms with us it is there's nobody that I want to see harmed out of this not at all but it's inevitable that if something isn't done to change the course people are going to suffer and you may wind up in it with the state and local governments in which basic essential services upon which so many people rely will not be able to be funded because the priority as it stands now absent a successful legal challenge goes to the the pensioners to get their of their payment and dead there there in in retirement and again many of them have contributed not all but even if they haven't contributed there is a contract involved here and there's a promise that is made that if you engage in X. employment for a given period of time you will reap the benefits accordingly so the ability to to change that obviously is just not there so a morally and legally and that's not gonna work that's not going to correct the problem so the poll question days do you think it's time that California leadership stepped up and resolve this issue or begin at least taking steps towards a resolution of this issue you'll find that poll question on the John again this page it KPK dot com is

"Required and we need to make sure that happens including ordering the land Lord to do it or landlord won't, do. It getting it done by the city and then the landlord is charged the. Violations, are a serious matter they're not. I if you've experienced married around I need to know what happened there to see if someone's not doing their. Job or there's something that's understanding but the, bottom line from my point of view is eight, hundred years supposed to be a very aggressive enforcement entity and job one for all of us is protecting affordable housing so I will have folks follow up because I want to understand, what happened here, and if we have to. Do something, differently we will Uber and left 'n via also cited we were talking, about Joe lhota saying the relaxation of enforcement of turnstile jumping is one of the reasons for officially decrease subway ridership numbers. This year also over lift VS cited, as a reason for less subway uses more people use them as a way to escape poor service underground that's one way those companies are Pushing back as you, know against the one year cap. On new cars that city council. Might approve next week the other big way, they're pushing back a civil rights they have Reverend Al Sharpton and the urban league and other saying an Uber. Capital me more people of color than otherwise can still be discriminated against by yellow cab drivers because an app does it know what color you are how much do you buy. The civil rights argument I think there's a historic problem that's very real and I. Don't accept any cabdriver for our vehicle driver, anyone discriminating against people of color and in fact. We've added some additional new reality working with the council there's going to be an office within the TLC to fight this specific problem but you should. Also know the existing the. Existing penalties for refusing to serve someone because of who they are very intense the first is a fine. The second fence is a suspension Of licensed the third is revoking license meaning someone can no longer drive a four hire vehicle? So on that for a second on those criteria? We had a caller last week who said the problem with that is it's so hard to prove against. An individual driver I you have. To be a, regular person on the street willing to pursue the case. After you get past up and then according to this caller you have to, demonstrate that the driver made eye contact, with you and somehow prove that to the TLC that's a high hurdle. That whole. Set of things for an. Individual you know victimize potential writer Look there's been a number of instances where the drivers were held accountable so I I believe it's yes there's a particular set of conditions and needs to. Be map but there's been, that has been met in a number of cases and we are adamant that we're. Going to enforce so that's a very real issue but we have a lot of the right tools. And now, we're, getting new tools working with the council to strengthen that enforcement. I think we can do that very effectively and. I think obviously in the, age of the cell phone camera on social media it's. Much easier to go after bad actors and we're, going to send a very clear message to all professional drivers that we will not tolerate discrimination and the consequences are going. To, be very severe but on the bigger point I think, the is doing the right thing here on this larger. Issue for vehicles and one of, the most central reasons is exactly why ran for this office to fight income inequality I mean look what. Is happening these drivers in the four higher vehicle sector recent study. Came out, from the university California Berkeley most overwhelming majorities drivers now making. Sub minimum wage because the business model of. Uber in particular is the flood zone with more and more vehicles more and more, drivers grab market share even if it means, a lot of drivers have no opportunity to make money because there's so many people competing for a certain amount of ride it's dumbing down the whole reality. Is kind of a race, to the bottom it's hurting the livelihood of the yellow cab drivers as well so. What's happening across the board because of these huge corporations is they're driving down the wages of hardworking. People work, in, this field that alone is a reason to call a time? Out and assess what's going on here What would the additional tools that you refer to that there would be for enforcing discrimination against writers by taxi. Driver new office is being created was now this week with the council and the administration to further educate drivers and to educate the public on. The kind of enforcement so we're making very clear to the drivers that discrimination. Is unacceptable and that the consequences are severe including literally being. Unable to do that work anymore and to educate the public that they can and should report any discrimination immediately and it will be.
