Capstone's Jared Asch Talks Innovative Economic Development With Ron Gerber
"Welcome to The Capstone Conversation. I'm your host, Jared Ash. Today, I'm joined by Ron Gerber. Ron is a former Economic Development Director, and he has worked in a number of cities throughout the Bay Area, Emeryville, Novato, Walnut Creek, South City, and Vallejo. I like the mix that he's worked in. He's worked in high -end shopping. He's worked in places that are industrial cities, bringing in new biotech, new technology companies, but also trying to keep their industrial base in those cities. We're going to hear an interesting perspective today on economic development. Welcome, Ron. Why don't you tell us a little bit more about your background? Yeah, thank you, Jared. Thank you for inviting me here today. Yeah, sure. The number of cities you mentioned all over the Bay Area, very diverse, which gave me a lot of experience that I'm happy to share with you today about kind of lessons learned and best practices. And let's start chronology. So during the nineties, I worked for Emeryville for about 12 years, and it led to a lot of very innovative practices at the time. We were one of the first to have an affordable housing ordinance, strong public art component, but we also had a city that was respecting its old industrial heritage, but also trying to transition to the next century. And we learned to do a lot of special outreach and work with the community to get results. Like for example, we got the first IKEA store in Northern California to go to an old steel mill site. I was in a couple of small meetings with Steve Jobs that eventually he and our team led to him moving the Pixar Computer Animation Studios to an old cannery site. Also north of IKEA was an old industrial patch that had 52 chemicals of concern. That was, we had to go through the remediation site assembly. That eventually became an urban mixed use town center with multiplex theater, restaurants, and about two over 200 housing units above the stores. It was mixed use, entertainment, living, and a whole variety of uses that really helped other businesses that want to locate there as well, bakeries. And the other thing it also, for example, when you have those businesses with strong biotechnics, that was also an Emeryville, led to other biotechs to be a catalyst. Similar Pixar, to that computer animation studio led to other animation spinoffs and businesses located there. So that was something, a lot of good lessons learned there, but one of the, one of the cornerstones of all that was having community support. The community embraced transitioning from an old industrial enclave while respecting the businesses and the employment base. How do we integrate that and transition with new uses, such as mixed use and housing? Then there, from spent about a decade in the city of Nevada, 15 miles north of there, helping transition the 600 acre military base Hamilton field, but also helping to transform the downtown, which is also very exciting. And there were some good lessons learned there too. And we want to talk about the downtown for a second. It was a very sleepy downtown, pretty much closed its doors at about 5 .30 most nights. But there was some areas that really needed to be upgraded. And I know there's a lot of discussion that's trying about what can we get to anchor the downtown to get things popping on our sleepy main street, seven block main street. A lot of discussion about maybe a movie theater or some other dynamic project. But at the same time, we listened to the community. They wanted a couple of grocery stores, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods were at the top of initial to become an anchor. And most people would say, is it a grocery store, kind of an unusual type of retailer, you get to anchor downtown. And when you think about it, depending upon what your downtown community wants, it can be a tremendous anchor. It was at the far end, the east end of its downtown, and it actually led to a mixed use project with Whole Foods as a ground floor and over 120 housing units on top of it. But one of the things that was so important about a grocery store is in a sleepy downtown at the time, most of those small independent mom and pops closed around 5 .30. And so the restaurants couldn't, they got by. Well, how can you extend the hours? You get an anchor like Whole Foods that's maybe open from eight in the morning till 10 at night, all of a sudden you've expanded something that's doing a 14 hour day instead of eight and a half. See, and a grocery store in like a movie theater or something like that, how often you go to the movies compared to grocery store. So it creates a lot of dynamic projects, daytimes, evenings, weekends, compared to movie theater, which may have weekends and occasional weeknight evenings. When you think about it, frequent shoppers, a lot of traffic, you're going to get a lot of people going to downtown that ordinarily wouldn't go there,
Jared Asch of Capstone Talks to Walnut Creek Councilman Kevin Wilk About Targeted Hate
"Councilman Wilk, let's talk about what happened in June. What has spurred this message of hate? We know that there was a rise in anti -Semitism and hate over the last 10 years. There had been a spike of it in the last six years. We really hadn't seen anything that had been localized. And then our first city council meeting in June. We opened up public communication to all people that were in the audience in the chamber, as well as on Zoom, as we've been doing ever since we were back in person. We kept a hybrid format available and we had a couple of callers into Zoom as usual. And then we had several callers in a row in an organized fashion that called in spreading anti -Semitism hate that was directed at me as well as the Jewish community. And when they were cut off after a warning, the next person called in talking about freedom of speech issues. They're not able to be shut down. We could be sued. The next person called in talking about the Brown Act. Another person called in talking about case study. So it was obvious they were in an organized fashion. We didn't know who these people were. They didn't have their videos on. They had anonymous names and we were stunned that this had suddenly happened in Walnut Creek. That was the first time we'd heard about it. I started paying a little bit more attention to what was going on after that. And unfortunately, there then started to be some other things that were happening in very racist, hateful, anti -Semitic tones. My name, for example, was put on a billboard above Highway 24 with a Jewish star and a white pride banner next to it. We received some very hateful emails. We also were hit with other Zoom anti -Semitic callers at our next meeting. And it happened for several meetings in a row, which moved between anti -Semitism to racism, anti -LGBTQ, anti -Semitism and hate always being part of it all. And then we started to hear about this happening in other cities nearby. And that's when I really started getting involved with the Anti -Defamation League. And at that point, I'll let you, we can hear what Holly, what Clayton experienced when they heard about this and then any other questions you've got too. Before I do that, are these people in your community or where are they coming from? Yeah, so we did hear from the ADL that they'd identified who these people were and evidently they had called into other areas, but not in California at that point. Turns out two of the people were from outside the county, one from Modesto, one from Vallejo and two people from outside the state, one from Georgia, one from Michigan. So in a way, I felt comforted that these weren't people in my backyard, but obviously just the fact that we'd had anti -Semitic and racist flyers that were strewn on the border of Walnut Creek and Concord over the last several months and my name being on a banner across Highway 24. There people weren't in activity that were here, literally in our backyard. And it's good to know that these Zoom callers aren't from here, but of course, when it comes to Zoom, you're able to open it up to anybody calling from anywhere in the country.

"And then Jalen guyton is out. Guyton was their big play downfield speed receiver, right? Herbert has played this season without his starting three receivers. One, two, three. For like 80% plus of the snaps. Yeah. Nobody like when Deandre Hopkins was suspended. We were like, well yeah, Kyler Murray was like none of this is gonna make sense. He's losing his top receiver, right? Like when waddle went down against the niners, like, oh, it's gonna be so tough. His second receiver's gone. Herbert's been out one, two, three. As everybody, man, like, Nate ties the athletic said this this week, which was so good. Deandre Carter has played 600 snaps for the Chargers this year. Previously, on like four different teams, he played a total of like 700 snaps. I think half of his career usage has come in this one season for the Chargers. That's how bad receiver has been for them this year. So that's where that team went. And that's why if you're trusting the charges offense to me, I need at least Mike Williams back on the field. I think the Pats are going to lose to Arizona before we go. What are your thoughts? Yeah. This offense for the past is very difficult to predict. And I will say that when they've been successful in these four points, the backs bed very good games, and you can pick on these Arizona linebackers and coverage, like none other, man. Saving Collins, make vigil. Tanner Vallejo is ASM and you can pick on them all. So big ramonda game. That's what I'm expecting. But I don't know if that's enough. And Arizona, again, they're both very material teams. That's a tough one to get up. It's a stay away. Don't bet on that game of America. So next week, can you come back? I want you to announce your finalist for football in there at MVP 2000 20. And the qualification is your 5 person ballot. Okay. Okay. Just the guys that you're texting like Nate tice or Danny Kelly. You're just like, oh my God, did you see that de tackle in the Jaguars? No. No exactly what you're talking about. You know what exactly I'm talking about. All Sunday. Yep. Yeah, all right. Ben solo, good to see you. Appreciate you both. $1 million picks week 14, I won one and a half $1 million last week. That was the good news. The bad news is I am still down 3.094 million, going to be positive before the playoffs start. I promise you. I'm working day and night, and I'm going back to the basics, yet again, straight up bets, galore, steelers, minus two and Africans, the ravens. I like this newest team. They're good to us last week. It's a kitchen sink game for them. They're 5 and 7 if they lose. They're out. Tenants have the might make the playoffs. I actually think they might be as good as the ravens too. Mike Tomlin, these games are always close. I love that we're getting a little extra half point there. Steelers. Minus two and a half, $1 million on that. Same for the Panthers are plus four against the Seahawks, look, Seattle's defense is terrible. We've seen it week after week, John wolford almost beat them last week. I don't mind this Panthers team. Four and 8, two plays away from 6 and 6. Their quarterback for the first month was Baker Mayfield, who was so unwanted by everyone in the league that the rams like begrudgingly claimed him, panther should be 6 and 6. I just think the Seattle defense is terrible. And if Sam darnold was ever looking for the game for his free agency tape, this is the game. Seattle is no pass rush. They can't stop the run. Dante foreman's going to have a big game. Carolina plus four, $1 million. We're going to come back to them for underdog parlay too. Next one, lions, minus one and a half against the Vikings. Now, there's some nobody believes in this factor with Minnesota that scares me a little bit. There are also by football outsiders, DVA, the worst ten and two team of all time. And at some point, you have to ask yourself are the Vikings going 15 and two? Are they going to lose one of these games? Meanwhile, the Detroit.

"Wasn't the guy who screw up the biggest case of the year. Denise i don't wanna get into the details of your of the sexual assault. It's horrible in so many ways i just. I wonder if the decision made in the book. You really go into quite explicit detail about what happened to you. And i wondered if there was ever a moment in making that decision. Where you're like you know. I don't need like you obviously made a conscious decision to explain exactly what happened. I'm curious to your thinking behind. Behind that i think above all you know when we decided that we wanted to share what happened and write a book that we wanted to be as raw and vulnerable as possible. To share specially those salts the position that you're in just the powerlessness and also just the the dehumanizing. I mean it's it's awful. I mean yeah. I mean to not only. Are you sexually assaulted. But he tells you you have to for the camera. Pretend to enjoy it. So it's like even worse than it's just horrible and man twisted and he makes a story up right that you're that somehow he has to show this to his colleagues because he messed up in the. You know. we didn't talk about this. But you weren't supposed to be the kidnap victim. It was supposed to be errands ex girlfriend. At least that's what they told you so anyway. I'm so sorry that happened to you but you felt like it was important for you to tell the whole story. Yeah yeah. I think it's I don't know. I guess in some ways I didn't want to hide from it I think in some ways it was healing Write it out and process through it. And i think to like kind of be able to explain all the different components of of that torture The best way to do that is to to share it It's important for fact that most sexually assault victims are females and for males and other people who haven't been fortunate to not having this that type awful trauma happened to you to gain some level empathy and to see it through victims is is is really important. That's why we shared this through. Our points of view is that we're trying to spread some empathy in may the rush to judgement of particularly sexual assault. Survivors are constantly victim. Blamed or is believed on another component to was that Later in the fbi affidavit. For the rest of matthew molar rich the man who helped me captive raped me. The fbi wrote that in the sexual assault exam there was quote no signs of nonconsensual sex implying that either the rape didn't happen or they weren't that bad or weren't technically rapes. Not something used against me. The fact that i i did what i needed to do to get through it and survive minimize the damage to myself my body. But because there wasn't gruesome internal injuries. Somehow that's not rate. And i wanted to show if not other people who might have that same viewpoint But especial he law enforcement who deal directly with Victims of sexual assault to to see the whole picture of if you don't understand why you don't fight back There are some examples. I mean you guys were traumatized so so many times not just by the perpetrator but by by law enforcement and so when you when you release your dropped off the huntington beach your home town. Many miles away. From lake tahoe. And you just your neighbor you find your neighbor and your neighbor calls your parents were up vay vallejo right and It's you know again that what happens to erin happens. You're like immediately their suspicion on the cops instead of you being this victim that's been traumatized and raped and treat horribly. You're you're so You know i'm released. Were reported that it's all a hoax. I went in for questioning by leo police and the fbi. And i went through the sexual assaults exam And then for months we you know it was just us that they were looking at and trying to threaten with prosecution and meanwhile you know the perpetrators were at large and And a physician to harm other people and you're like a victim again. It's just crazy story in that way and they call you gone girl. Bob shelton i live to vallejo. Is she a real life. Gone girl who demands thousands in ransom after a dramatic kidnap.

I don't know anything about the twenty nine year old woman who's been called the real life gone girl is fighting back. After police called her kidnapping a hoax is absolutely unequivocally. One hundred percent positively of victim. And this is no host. Denise hoskins lawyer insists. She is fully cooperating with cops even though they've denounced her kidnapping claim. And and you know when my lawyer told me those were the reports at first. You know my thoughts law. Is that a good or a bad thing. Like i mean every second of every day was like is it gonna turn around. Is it gonna finally feel like i'm free. Is this nightmare over. But it just kept being one blow after another after another where it just felt like. I was just being shoved into the turt- And there was really little hope getting out. Yeah thanks to this woman Misty caruso who is a detective In like as dublin california that put together this like this is this is similar this case to case she was investigating of a couple who were also the attempted of a similar thing. They broke into the bedroom at night and and asked the couple to do the same thing. But in this case this guy fought back and then as a result right there was a skirmish and the the the perpetrator escaped and left like a cell phone behind or something. I mean that's how that's how they were able to track down to lake tahoe. This person down to lake tahoe. This is my understanding for reading your book and and this misty caruso put it together. This matt muller so this guy. They find matt muller he is like ex military the fbi announcing and arrest in the case thirty eight year.

This changes nothing about the humiliation. The violence that was perpetrated on them nearly four months ago by a psychopath will you guys ultimately are vindicated somewhat. Because the truth does come out. You weren't lying. This all happened to you. The one thing that's a real mystery is at. They caught muller but they but you you feel that there was two people in the room at least two people in the room right so there is you do still feel like there might be somebody else out there.

Report from California's inspector General Roy Wesley found the mismanaged transfer of prisoners to San Quentin lead to 75% of the prison's population being infected with Cove. It 28 inmates and one staff member died. Wesley says the initial transfer was done to keep medically fragile inmates safe. However, he says it was deeply flawed. For instance, what alarms were raised by medical staff that no testing had recently been done. Those concerns of medical staff were ignored by their managers, Wesley says. When inmates arrived at San Quentin, including some showing symptoms of Cove it they were not isolated from the rest of the population. Assemblyman Mark Levin, whose district includes San Quentin, questioned why it took so long for prison officials to take the outbreak seriously, he says Early on, he called for a number of steps to be taken. For an operational command to be set up for an alternate care site to be set up for spacing for the incarcerated people, so limit spread. None of this took place until July.

Hook, Line, and Sink-Her, a History of Fishnets
"Mechanization of textile production as you know what really kind of signal the beginning of the end. For many of these handcrafted industries like lace knitting and simple sewing because these things increasingly transitioned to being made by machine and the latter two are the means by which the majority of people socks were saying sewing and knitting That's how most people socks and hosiery were made for centuries upon centuries and we just want to say that we've received numerous requests to do an episode on knitting. But I think you and I kind of intimidated by this topic. I know it's a huge. I mean it's just a giant giant topic. Yeah knitting and there's actually entire podcast just about knitting. Yeah it's very true and and just diving into this topic as you know just for this past week or two. It's very clear that this could be an entire. The history of knitting could be its entire podcast because its existing cultures around the world for hundreds if not over a thousand years ancient Egyptians appear to have been some of its earliest practitioners. I guess there's a there are extent I don't guess I know. They're extent knitted socks dating to the third or fourth century. Ad So well they also at the Vienna have really helpful instinct quote unquote history of knitting essay. I think we'll probably post a link of that somewhere. And they tell us in this essay that there is evidence of knitting goods being produced and circulated in Europe from the fourteenth century on so knitting was used in the production of men and women's hose at the time and we have to remember. We're not talking pantyhose. They were not fully fashioned. They did not have a crotch. These are two separate garments one for each leg and foot and as we can imagine and I'm sure many of our listeners who knit can relate. Haning hose was a labor and time intensive process. So you would think that people might have been a bit relieved when the English clergyman William Lee invented the first mechanical knitting machine or stocking frame as it was known the sixteenth century when he created it but alas they were not they are actually quite pissed well and like with many modern technical innovations. This is all had to do with the fact that many people's livelihoods were depending on the old way of doing things right so in this case the hand niggers the knitting industry exactly and so when lease machine that had stockings were presented to none other than Queen Elizabeth. The first herself she rejected them for this very reason. She reportedly told him quote. I have too much love for my poor people who obtain their bread by the employment of knitting to give my money to Ford invention that will tend to their ruin by depriving them of employment and thus making them bakers and from this moment on lease stocking frame and its subsequent evolutions. Were incredibly controversial. You just have to look at the protection of stocking frames act. Seventeen Eighty eight which rabbit hole people go. It's fine and the destruction of stocking frames act of eighteen twelve to realize that people wanted these machines. Gone that go away. They would not lease machine might represent one of the first examples of mechanization of textile production. But it would absolutely not be the very last you know. His invention was first major stage. In what would become the textile industries wide revolution that transformed the ways at textiles and dress reproduced. To this very day and these some of these other inventions include devices such as the cotton gin the card loom and ultimately the sewing machine so these machines like so many textile innovations of the industrial revolution. They would transform the industry but they would also displaced thousands of workers in the process and by the end of the Eighteenth Century. Lease stocking frame was being adapted to produce lace. But it would be John Heathcote. Bob Monette machine that is credited with perfecting it. Heath Coats machine produced plane net lace which we might refer to as tool today. April this is where stocking production and technology begins to go way over my head. I can guess because we have a ton of like textile trade industry publications in the collection at fit and they have like all the machines and diagrams and scientific information mean that this is like hardcore science. We're talking about. Yeah and there's a lot a lot of innovation happening in the knitted hose industry in the eighteenth late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries so it was a bit overwhelming and you know this because textile and specifically stocking production was incredibly integral to the British economy economies of the world over so there are these highly detailed reports about its development throughout the nineteenth century about the development of knitting technologies and netting technologies and there are a lot a lot of developments as April mentioned in the eighteen forties. Commissioner was appointed by Queen Victoria to report on the State of framework knitting industry and he produces a densely packed. Sixty five page report. Sixty pages complete no with not only the history of the knitting industry but in the country but also a quote list of the various kinds of machinery made use of in manufacturer of hosiery and lace with the names of Inventors From Fifteen Eighty Nine Aka. William Lee. We just spoke about two eighteen forty to eighteen forty three the present day so needless to say by the beginning of the nineteenth century the list which spans hundreds of years at this point was quite extensive and includes everything from lease stocking frame and Heathcote Bob an ATM machine to numerous others including casts quote machines for Lang. Hair and Jose remade wigs. I think I I think I need to know more about this and even eighteen. Oh three a fishing net machine but apparently it's failed being made by fishermen cheaper than by machine at this point so I guess the point would really trying to drive home as that lace and lace net where being machine made in the early nineteenth century and by eighteen forty five. There's a journal. Being produced by Pennsylvania's Franklin Institute and they reported on the modes quote of Work Fabricating Lace and Framework Knitted Manufacturers introduced from foreign states and this included machines for round fingered gloves from Madrid in Spain. Figured Work Shawls and quote unquote nodded hose without seems from. Leone and Barcelona and a quote cylinder particular machine for making fancy net hose and that came from a sound sturdy little bit. I think I'd take layers a needle. Okay okay but still just say but these these were not fishnet nets right. They're not for catching fish or fish. Net Hose No. They're not and I'm at but I am actually happy to finally share things to these evolutions and laze technology and eighteen eighty nine. We find the very first use of the term. The actual term fishnet in Harper's bazaar in relation to women's dress and they write the fashionable diesel returned from Paris bringing down with many new features gowns of India soaks Chinese crepe a fish nets and leases. But I did not find the use a fish net in relation to hose or stockings until over twenty years later in their nineteen twelve fall fashion number the trade publication dry goods reporter reported on a quote. Black Vallejo's of pure silk in a fish net pattern but they assure the readers at the hose were not intended to wear next to the skin but to produce novel effects when worn over white or colored hopes so from the very first introduction of fish net hose into women's fashion. We are already seeing these associations with eroticism. Yes you know. And they're kind of scared of that association right because they assured their readers again that quote. The new fishnet hose that we illustrate in this article has been shown to newspaper representatives. And some of them have used it as a subject of humorous articles. Conveying the impression that it was to be worn next to the skin. You know so this erotic potential of this garment is literally illustrated in this article. There's kind of the irony of it because they have this woman modeling this novel. Hosiery and April. We see her ankles. No what are we GONNA do. Candle shock and awe article continues on quote. The hose may never become a big seller on the market but the effect produced by them. Is Novel any store? Having at least a single pair of them for exhibition purposes could attract unusual attention to their hosiery department. So that's hilarious. There were basically like saying Ou. Come look at these scandalous stockings. You don't have to buy them. We're not really selling them right right. And I mean. It remained a novelty throughout the teens. Basically until nineteen twenty and this is where we see a more widespread acknowledgement of what the dry goods reporter calls the quote Unquote fishnet effect. In

California Relies on Planes, Lessons From Past to Prevent Deadly Blazes
"With us California has battled some of its biggest wild fires this year with a new weapon a plane for example outfitted with infrared sensors that can see through smoke to plop the Blazers perimeters and transmit the coordinates to firefighters in real time the plane has mapped many of the major fires that exploded in the past few weeks including five in the greater Los Angeles area and the king came fire in cinema county north of San Francisco more on wild this wildfire season has not been as deadly as ones in the past from Erin L. worth disaster reporter at the Wall Street journal Erin what we know so far there have been more than five thousand players this season but that tracked by cal fire but none of them have have gotten to the point that they are as destructive or as deadly as something like a camp fire that destroyed last year that killed eighty five people they're not as destructive say as the twenty seventeen fire storm in California's wine country is that you know destroyed Q. Q. neighborhood in Santa Rosa killed more than two dozen people were just not we're seeing we're seeing fires but they are not doing the same scale of damage that's not to say that they're not doing some damage the people have people have lost homes showed that heart wrenching thing to go through it but again just not on that huge scale towards and it's not because these fires are hitting the same areas and there's nothing left to burn that's not the case right no in fact in terms of the can keep fire one of the things that I was told was that in some ways the fire was filling in areas that had burned repeatedly so some of them are starting in the same general area but it's not like they're on top of the the the buyer or the campfire burned or anything like that so what are some folks point to here in terms of lessons from the past well good to start with the experience a lot of people say you know California firefighters they are constantly dealing with these wildfires they are just crawling on drawing on previous experience cute to go after these things and you can look at at a fire fighting it can be like the one in Contra Costa or the one in Vallejo where they've they've learned that you know in red flag whether the need to pre position so a red flag warning will come up and a red flag is what you have you know high winds and low humidity and essentially big fuel load up lots of things that might be able to burn a fire to be likely so don't don't yeah extra engine to add an extra ladder trucks add prepare those resources and then make sure that they have the firefighters available to you take take those recorded out when needed and so the other day one Contra Costa was under a red flag to be fought like eat fire in in a fifteen hour period and they drew heavily on those pre positioned resources while speaking with Erin L. worse disaster reporter at the Wall Street journal teacher in a piece entitled California relies on planes and lessons from the past to prevent deadly blaze as well so they point to here what do we actually kind of cool stuff happening you have been I'll call it a consortium of firefighting agencies and mark Porsche other California counties who have started to rely on the line I'm pretty advanced technology bear in the supercomputer that in house at UC San Diego and the super computer it's called wife higher it it basically is a modeling program and it will take real time weather data known fire corridors and then a bunch of other information and add two one eight by your store like say the Getty fire in LA firefighters will pop what they know about that fire into into the modeling program and why fire will essentially it out predictions about what the fire might do you thanks Erin Erin feel worse disaster reporter at the Wall

White officer demoted for Snapchat video taunting black woman
"So to have this video of an officer. It was posted on Facebook. Yesterday shows an officer. Tackling Vallejo residents. Adrian Burrell after Burrell refused to back, wait. Now, the officer, of course, has the right, and we cannot interfere with their ability to do their job. But the officer there's limit on that officer can't if I'm standing ten feet away.
