2020.08.13 05:08 Noanswer_merelyapath [Discussion] Gov Newsom's 08/12 COVID-19 Press Conference

This discussion series is meant to spur discussion and problem solving within the community in regards to the novel COVID-19 outbreak. Below is my live transcript of Governor Newsom's COVID-19 briefing.
Please contribute with your personal views, anecdotes, or stories! Let's all strive to work together to make our communities safe & healthy!
~12:08 pm start, ~13:11 pm end
[editor's note: Please accept my apology for posting this discussion thread so late! I had a personal emergency and could not transcribe today's conference live. I will definitely be transcribing Newsom's conference on Fri, 08/14. Thank you for your continued support!]
Major talking points he made:
 
General
 
Wear a mask, physically distance, wash your hands, minimize mixing. We have made a lot of progress. Can't let guard down now and let our previous efforts go to waste.
 
Consider supporting your local businesses. Businesses cannot survive in an economy that is failing. New paradigm on economic growth is based on growth & inclusion. We believe this will lead to long-term economic recovery.
 
We need a more inclusive, resilient, future-proofed economy with a focus on near, medium, and long term.
The Legislature has done great work elevating ideas to help spur growth. With two weeks left in this legislative session, it's time to get an economic recovery package across the finish line.
 
We must reform ourselves to adapt to pandemic conditions. Have to work to reform to close the digital divide. By expanding broadband infrastructure and pushing telework, CA will look to adapt to pandemic conditions.

Build on housing production laws to get more housing built faster
Positivity Rate (Today's COVID-19 Statistics):
A metric to show changes in the rates of infection. Graphs pictured show the number of positive cases in the tests conducted. An increase in the rate indicates an increase in spread of the virus.
 
24 hr: 11,645 (August 11), includes 6,212 backlogged cases, 5,433 new. mentioned on Mon that this week over next few days, 295k backlogged cases will be stacked on actual dates the numbers came in. ~12k positive cases August 10.

N/A
QUESTIONS
 
Q1: who will you consider electing in place of Kamala Harris?
A1: absolutely focused on bending the curve, mitigating the spread, recovering the economy, returning kids back to school, and returning to semblance of normalcy. will continue to consider candidates
 
Q2: in re: temporary eviction moratorium expiring 09/01. even if legislature makes new bill, wouldn't the moratorium take effect in new year?
A2: able to take Executive Action to address with emergency capacity with legislature so that bills would come into effect immediately or in a timely manner. very cognizant of timeline so that expiration date extends.
 
Q3: you said today you are optimistic on state's trends. Specify more? Would you consider reopening businsses?
A3: Newsom proceeds to show the slide on COVID+ hospitalizations to cite his optimism. Nearly a month ago, our hospitalization growth was +50% early July. The data shows that our actions (both state and individual) is working! He believes social distancing and mask etiquette has led to significant decline in hospitalizations. Worst mistake we can make now is to walk away and revert back to how things used to be. Must be deliberate as we move to modification. Consistently engaged with recovery taskforces on sectoral guidelines for safely reopening. Modifying constantly (eg- college, school sports).
 
Q4: you have known Kamala Harris for a long time. please share insight behind of the scenes. has anyone pitched themselves as a replacement?
A4: You (reporter) may be the only one who hasn't pushed themselves as a replacement! [editor's note: Newsom is definitely cracking a joke]. Newsom doesn't want to get into detail about personal issues; however, Newsom knew her prior to her becoming District Attorney. Have extensive years working together. Based on that relationship and insight on her character, made it easy for Newsom to endorse her when she announced she was running for POTUS.
 
Q5: 4.5 million lost $600 PUA. what's next for them? what can you say to them? plan going forward?
A5: a lot of this was addressed on Monday's conference. [editor's note: here's a link if you'd like to read his answers.] The $400 proposed by Trump is now $300/week. continue to advocate for more federal support. Will focus on pushing out the $300/week federal aid. However, eligibility rules have changed. Processing problems anticipated as CA's systems and digital databases are severely outdated.
 
Q6: any indication that CALReady wasn't up to the task? What about future problems with the system? Any plans to replace is problems persist.
A6: Addressed the question on Monday. Our commitment is not only to reach a solution, but also to build a new parallel system connected to CAL Ready but is COVID focused. The CALReady system does not have the ability to scale with the enormous amounts of data and processing.
List of counties on watchlist for at least 3 days: 38 [editor's note: the county watchlist is currently frozen until the backlogged data is presented and prepared by local officials.]
(Old: 38) Alameda, Butte, Colusa, Contra Costa, Fresno, Glenn, Imperial, Kern, Kings, LA, Madera, Marin, Merced, Mono, Monterey, Napa, Orange, Placer, Riverside, Sacramento, San Benito, San Bernandino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Joaquin, San Mateo, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tulare, Ventura, Yolo, Yuba
(New: 0)
 
According to covid19.ca.gov, these are the new counties on the interim watchlist (will update in 24-72 hrs with backlogged cases):
Amador, Calaveras, Del Norte, El Dorado, Humboldt, Inyo, Lake, Mariposa, Mendocino, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, Trinity, Tuolumne
 
When do counties get placed on the watchlist??
Counties are put on the watchlist when their data exceeds the following:
1) Case rate (per 100,000) >100... OR Case rate (per 100,000) >25 AND testing positivity >8.0%
2) >10% increase in the average number of confirmed COVID-19 patients hospitalized
3) <20% of staffed ICU beds are available... OR <25% of ventilators are available
Getting off of the list would require the county to fare better than those limits. Counties are on the list when one or more metrics are met. Counties are removed from the list when all three are cleared.

QUESTIONS
 
Q1: who will you consider electing in place of Kamala Harris?
A1: absolutely focused on bending the curve, mitigating the spread, recovering the economy, returning kids back to school, and returning to semblance of normalcy. will continue to consider candidates
 
Q2: in re: temporary eviction moratorium expiring 09/01. even if legislature makes new bill, wouldn't the moratorium take effect in new year?
A2: able to take Executive Action to address with emergency capacity with legislature so that bills would come into effect immediately or in a timely manner. very cognizant of timeline so that expiration date extends.
 
Q3: you said today you are optimistic on state's trends. Specify more? Would you consider reopening businsses?
A3: Newsom proceeds to show the slide on COVID+ hospitalizations to cite his optimism. Nearly a month ago, our hospitalization growth was +50% early July. The data shows that our actions (both state and individual) is working! He believes social distancing and mask etiquette has led to significant decline in hospitalizations. Worst mistake we can make now is to walk away and revert back to how things used to be. Must be deliberate as we move to modification. Consistently engaged with recovery taskforces on sectoral guidelines for safely reopening. Modifying constantly (eg- college, school sports).
 
Q4: you have known Kamala Harris for a long time. please share insight behind of the scenes. has anyone pitched themselves as a replacement?
A4: You (reporter) may be the only one who hasn't pushed themselves as a replacement! [editor's note: Newsom is definitely cracking a joke]. Newsom doesn't want to get into detail about personal issues; however, Newsom knew her prior to her becoming District Attorney. Have extensive years working together. Based on that relationship and insight on her character, made it easy for Newsom to endorse her when she announced she was running for POTUS.
 
Q5: 4.5 million lost $600 PUA. what's next for them? what can you say to them? plan going forward?
A5: a lot of this was addressed on Monday's conference. [editor's note: here's a link if you'd like to read his answers.] The $400 proposed by Trump is now $300/week. continue to advocate for more federal support. Will focus on pushing out the $300/week federal aid. However, eligibility rules have changed. Processing problems anticipated as CA's systems and digital databases are severely outdated.
 
Q6: any indication that CALReady wasn't up to the task? What about future problems with the system? Any plans to replace is problems persist.
A6: Addressed the question on Monday. Our commitment is not only to reach a solution, but also to build a new parallel system connected to CAL Ready but is COVID focused. The CALReady system does not have the ability to scale with the enormous amounts of data and processing.
List of counties on watchlist for at least 3 days: 38 [editor's note: the county watchlist is currently frozen until the backlogged data is presented and prepared by local officials.]
(Old: 38) Alameda, Butte, Colusa, Contra Costa, Fresno, Glenn, Imperial, Kern, Kings, LA, Madera, Marin, Merced, Mono, Monterey, Napa, Orange, Placer, Riverside, Sacramento, San Benito, San Bernandino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Joaquin, San Mateo, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tulare, Ventura, Yolo, Yuba
(New: 0)
 
According to covid19.ca.gov, these are the new counties on the interim watchlist (will update in 24-72 hrs with backlogged cases):
Amador, Calaveras, Del Norte, El Dorado, Humboldt, Inyo, Lake, Mariposa, Mendocino, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, Trinity, Tuolumne
 
When do counties get placed on the watchlist??
Counties are put on the watchlist when their data exceeds the following:
1) Case rate (per 100,000) >100... OR Case rate (per 100,000) >25 AND testing positivity >8.0%
2) >10% increase in the average number of confirmed COVID-19 patients hospitalized
3) <20% of staffed ICU beds are available... OR <25% of ventilators are available
Getting off of the list would require the county to fare better than those limits. Counties are on the list when one or more metrics are met. Counties are removed from the list when all three are cleared.

QUESTIONS
 
Q1: who will you consider electing in place of Kamala Harris?
A1: absolutely focused on bending the curve, mitigating the spread, recovering the economy, returning kids back to school, and returning to semblance of normalcy. will continue to consider candidates
 
Q2: in re: temporary eviction moratorium expiring 09/01. even if legislature makes new bill, wouldn't the moratorium take effect in new year?
A2: able to take Executive Action to address with emergency capacity with legislature so that bills would come into effect immediately or in a timely manner. very cognizant of timeline so that expiration date extends.
 
Q3: you said today you are optimistic on state's trends. Specify more? Would you consider reopening businsses?
A3: Newsom proceeds to show the slide on COVID+ hospitalizations to cite his optimism. Nearly a month ago, our hospitalization growth was +50% early July. The data shows that our actions (both state and individual) is working! He believes social distancing and mask etiquette has led to significant decline in hospitalizations. Worst mistake we can make now is to walk away and revert back to how things used to be. Must be deliberate as we move to modification. Consistently engaged with recovery taskforces on sectoral guidelines for safely reopening. Modifying constantly (eg- college, school sports).
 
Q4: you have known Kamala Harris for a long time. please share insight behind of the scenes. has anyone pitched themselves as a replacement?
A4: You (reporter) may be the only one who hasn't pushed themselves as a replacement! [editor's note: Newsom is definitely cracking a joke]. Newsom doesn't want to get into detail about personal issues; however, Newsom knew her prior to her becoming District Attorney. Have extensive years working together. Based on that relationship and insight on her character, made it easy for Newsom to endorse her when she announced she was running for POTUS.
 
Q5: 4.5 million lost $600 PUA. what's next for them? what can you say to them? plan going forward?
A5: a lot of this was addressed on Monday's conference. [editor's note: here's a link if you'd like to read his answers.] The $400 proposed by Trump is now $300/week. continue to advocate for more federal support. Will focus on pushing out the $300/week federal aid. However, eligibility rules have changed. Processing problems anticipated as CA's systems and digital databases are severely outdated.
 
Q6: any indication that CALReady wasn't up to the task? What about future problems with the system? Any plans to replace is problems persist.
A6: Addressed the question on Monday. Our commitment is not only to reach a solution, but also to build a new parallel system connected to CAL Ready but is COVID focused. The CALReady system does not have the ability to scale with the enormous amounts of data and processing.
List of counties on watchlist for at least 3 days: 38 [editor's note: the county watchlist is currently frozen until the backlogged data is presented and prepared by local officials.]
(Old: 38) Alameda, Butte, Colusa, Contra Costa, Fresno, Glenn, Imperial, Kern, Kings, LA, Madera, Marin, Merced, Mono, Monterey, Napa, Orange, Placer, Riverside, Sacramento, San Benito, San Bernandino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Joaquin, San Mateo, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tulare, Ventura, Yolo, Yuba
(New: 0)
 
According to covid19.ca.gov, these are the new counties on the interim watchlist (will update in 24-72 hrs with backlogged cases):
Amador, Calaveras, Del Norte, El Dorado, Humboldt, Inyo, Lake, Mariposa, Mendocino, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, Trinity, Tuolumne
 
When do counties get placed on the watchlist??
Counties are put on the watchlist when their data exceeds the following:
1) Case rate (per 100,000) >100... OR Case rate (per 100,000) >25 AND testing positivity >8.0%
2) >10% increase in the average number of confirmed COVID-19 patients hospitalized
3) <20% of staffed ICU beds are available... OR <25% of ventilators are available
Getting off of the list would require the county to fare better than those limits. Counties are on the list when one or more metrics are met. Counties are removed from the list when all three are cleared.

QUESTIONS
 
Q1: who will you consider electing in place of Kamala Harris?
A1: absolutely focused on bending the curve, mitigating the spread, recovering the economy, returning kids back to school, and returning to semblance of normalcy. will continue to consider candidates
 
Q2: in re: temporary eviction moratorium expiring 09/01. even if legislature makes new bill, wouldn't the moratorium take effect in new year?
A2: able to take Executive Action to address with emergency capacity with legislature so that bills would come into effect immediately or in a timely manner. very cognizant of timeline so that expiration date extends.
 
Q3: you said today you are optimistic on state's trends. Specify more? Would you consider reopening businsses?
A3: Newsom proceeds to show the slide on COVID+ hospitalizations to cite his optimism. Nearly a month ago, our hospitalization growth was +50% early July. The data shows that our actions (both state and individual) is working! He believes social distancing and mask etiquette has led to significant decline in hospitalizations. Worst mistake we can make now is to walk away and revert back to how things used to be. Must be deliberate as we move to modification. Consistently engaged with recovery taskforces on sectoral guidelines for safely reopening. Modifying constantly (eg- college, school sports).
 
Q4: you have known Kamala Harris for a long time. please share insight behind of the scenes. has anyone pitched themselves as a replacement?
A4: You (reporter) may be the only one who hasn't pushed themselves as a replacement! [editor's note: Newsom is definitely cracking a joke]. Newsom doesn't want to get into detail about personal issues; however, Newsom knew her prior to her becoming District Attorney. Have extensive years working together. Based on that relationship and insight on her character, made it easy for Newsom to endorse her when she announced she was running for POTUS.
 
Q5: 4.5 million lost $600 PUA. what's next for them? what can you say to them? plan going forward?
A5: a lot of this was addressed on Monday's conference. [editor's note: here's a link if you'd like to read his answers.] The $400 proposed by Trump is now $300/week. continue to advocate for more federal support. Will focus on pushing out the $300/week federal aid. However, eligibility rules have changed. Processing problems anticipated as CA's systems and digital databases are severely outdated.
 
Q6: any indication that CALReady wasn't up to the task? What about future problems with the system? Any plans to replace is problems persist.
A6: Addressed the question on Monday. Our commitment is not only to reach a solution, but also to build a new parallel system connected to CAL Ready but is COVID focused. The CALReady system does not have the ability to scale with the enormous amounts of data and processing.
List of counties on watchlist for at least 3 days: 38 [editor's note: the county watchlist is currently frozen until the backlogged data is presented and prepared by local officials.]
(Old: 38) Alameda, Butte, Colusa, Contra Costa, Fresno, Glenn, Imperial, Kern, Kings, LA, Madera, Marin, Merced, Mono, Monterey, Napa, Orange, Placer, Riverside, Sacramento, San Benito, San Bernandino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Joaquin, San Mateo, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tulare, Ventura, Yolo, Yuba
(New: 0)
 
According to covid19.ca.gov, these are the new counties on the interim watchlist (will update in 24-72 hrs with backlogged cases):
Amador, Calaveras, Del Norte, El Dorado, Humboldt, Inyo, Lake, Mariposa, Mendocino, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, Trinity, Tuolumne
 
When do counties get placed on the watchlist??
Counties are put on the watchlist when their data exceeds the following:
1) Case rate (per 100,000) >100... OR Case rate (per 100,000) >25 AND testing positivity >8.0%
2) >10% increase in the average number of confirmed COVID-19 patients hospitalized
3) <20% of staffed ICU beds are available... OR <25% of ventilators are available
Getting off of the list would require the county to fare better than those limits. Counties are on the list when one or more metrics are met. Counties are removed from the list when all three are cleared.

Deaths
N/A
QUESTIONS
 
Q1: who will you consider electing in place of Kamala Harris?
A1: absolutely focused on bending the curve, mitigating the spread, recovering the economy, returning kids back to school, and returning to semblance of normalcy. will continue to consider candidates
 
Q2: in re: temporary eviction moratorium expiring 09/01. even if legislature makes new bill, wouldn't the moratorium take effect in new year?
A2: able to take Executive Action to address with emergency capacity with legislature so that bills would come into effect immediately or in a timely manner. very cognizant of timeline so that expiration date extends.
 
Q3: you said today you are optimistic on state's trends. Specify more? Would you consider reopening businsses?
A3: Newsom proceeds to show the slide on COVID+ hospitalizations to cite his optimism. Nearly a month ago, our hospitalization growth was +50% early July. The data shows that our actions (both state and individual) is working! He believes social distancing and mask etiquette has led to significant decline in hospitalizations. Worst mistake we can make now is to walk away and revert back to how things used to be. Must be deliberate as we move to modification. Consistently engaged with recovery taskforces on sectoral guidelines for safely reopening. Modifying constantly (eg- college, school sports).
 
Q4: you have known Kamala Harris for a long time. please share insight behind of the scenes. has anyone pitched themselves as a replacement?
A4: You (reporter) may be the only one who hasn't pushed themselves as a replacement! [editor's note: Newsom is definitely cracking a joke]. Newsom doesn't want to get into detail about personal issues; however, Newsom knew her prior to her becoming District Attorney. Have extensive years working together. Based on that relationship and insight on her character, made it easy for Newsom to endorse her when she announced she was running for POTUS.
 
Q5: 4.5 million lost $600 PUA. what's next for them? what can you say to them? plan going forward?
A5: a lot of this was addressed on Monday's conference. [editor's note: here's a link if you'd like to read his answers.] The $400 proposed by Trump is now $300/week. continue to advocate for more federal support. Will focus on pushing out the $300/week federal aid. However, eligibility rules have changed. Processing problems anticipated as CA's systems and digital databases are severely outdated.
 
Q6: any indication that CALReady wasn't up to the task? What about future problems with the system? Any plans to replace is problems persist.
A6: Addressed the question on Monday. Our commitment is not only to reach a solution, but also to build a new parallel system connected to CAL Ready but is COVID focused. The CALReady system does not have the ability to scale with the enormous amounts of data and processing.
List of counties on watchlist for at least 3 days: 38 [editor's note: the county watchlist is currently frozen until the backlogged data is presented and prepared by local officials.]
(Old: 38) Alameda, Butte, Colusa, Contra Costa, Fresno, Glenn, Imperial, Kern, Kings, LA, Madera, Marin, Merced, Mono, Monterey, Napa, Orange, Placer, Riverside, Sacramento, San Benito, San Bernandino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Joaquin, San Mateo, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tulare, Ventura, Yolo, Yuba
(New: 0)
 
According to covid19.ca.gov, these are the new counties on the interim watchlist (will update in 24-72 hrs with backlogged cases):
Amador, Calaveras, Del Norte, El Dorado, Humboldt, Inyo, Lake, Mariposa, Mendocino, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, Trinity, Tuolumne
 
When do counties get placed on the watchlist??
Counties are put on the watchlist when their data exceeds the following:
1) Case rate (per 100,000) >100... OR Case rate (per 100,000) >25 AND testing positivity >8.0%
2) >10% increase in the average number of confirmed COVID-19 patients hospitalized
3) <20% of staffed ICU beds are available... OR <25% of ventilators are available
Getting off of the list would require the county to fare better than those limits. Counties are on the list when one or more metrics are met. Counties are removed from the list when all three are cleared.

2020.08.13 03:03 portlane Susan Sinclair-Langner (Aug. 17, 1943 - March 25, 2020)

In Loving Memory
Susan Sinclair-Langner
Aug. 17, 1943 - March 25, 2020
In the early morning hours of March 25, 2020, this world lost a beautiful person. The much-loved Susan Sinclair-Langner passed away at her home seven months after being diagnosed with brain cancer.
She is survived by beloved sons, Robert and Christopher Sinclair; dearest granddaughter, Catherine Sinclair; loving brothers and spouses, Frank and Beverly Rasmussen, Reverend John and Carmella Rasmussen; and numerous cousins.
She is also survived by her devoted husband of 27 years, Patrick Langner, and her close, blended family: stepson, Michael Langner and his wife, Jolanta; stepdaughters, Kimberly Caldwell and Sandra Auzas and Sandra's husband, Phillip. She is survived by cherished grandchildren, Jesse, Christopher, Heather, Megan, Alex, Courtney, Christelle, Tanner; and six great-grandchildren.
Susan was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Thekla Rasmussen and former spouse, Robert Sinclair.
Susan attended Los Altos High School in Los Altos, Calif., and Foothill College in Los Altos Hills. She graduated from San Francisco Dental College, worked as a dental nurse/hygienist, and performed nursing-related work at the Palo Alto Medical Clinic.
After volunteering as a Palo Alto Reserve Police Officer in 1975, Susan's dream career began. She graduated from the California Criminal Justice Police Academy in 1978 and was hired by the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office as a Deputy Sheriff. She was employed as a police officer for the City of Los Altos Police Department in 1979, where she became a respected detective, developing many lifelong police and firefighter friends with whom she always stayed in touch. Part of her great value to the communities she served was her profound empathy for crime victims and people in dire straits.
In retirement her artistic talents kept her busy, whether developing a small-child clothing business, creating a beautiful flower garden, decorating a cake or designing ink stamps for a rubber stamp company. Her beautiful voice was put to perfect use as a volunteer reader for Books for the Blind, and she worked as an Ombudsman for the elderly in Santa Clara County; Susan exercised a great sense of responsibility to assist others in ways like this throughout her life.
After Susan's husband Patrick retired from law enforcement in 1997, they moved from the Bay Area to Lake Oswego, Ore. The wanderlust overcame them, resulting in Susan enjoying several months each year of RV travel in the U.S. and Canada with Patrick and their dogs, Scooter and Lucky. She made many RV friends. She especially loved annual visits to Lake Tahoe, Nevada, where they married in 1993 and often met up with their lifelong friends, Karen and Ron.
Susan had a great love for all animals, small and large. Besides her dogs and cats, she enjoyed many species of birds and squirrels visiting her bedroom window, drawn by feeders she placed for them. She was a volunteer for Oregon Dog Rescue, walking their dogs until her health prevented her from continuing. While RVing, she and her husband rescued many lost dogs and cats. Her most gratifying rescue was a 3-hour ordeal following a small, scared, mangy dog wandering in a hot and arid open California area populated with coyotes.
Susan organized many large family and neighborhood gatherings and hosted Christmas parties. She never forgot the birthdays of her large and extended family and always looked forward to a traditional celebration of her own birthday with her sons at her favorite restaurant. She was a talented practical joker, especially when April Fool's Day and Halloween would bring out her mischievous side. Susan loved socializing with her Lake Oswego neighbors and often expressed how blessed and fortunate she was to have the best neighbors of her life. She was always concerned about the struggles and well being of relatives, friends, and neighbors.
During Susan's difficult last months of convalescing at home, her gentle tears often showed her appreciation for the comfort she received from the cards, love and prayers of her family and friends.
Dear, dear Susan, it is so hard to say goodbye to someone with such a kind and tender heart, who meant so much to us. We will always remember your smile, your laugh, your happy disposition, and the way you loved us. You will always stay in our thoughts and in our hearts and we will always love you. Thank you for a life of wonderful memories. We will never forget you. Rest in Peace, sweet Susan.
Susan requested her ashes be commingled with those of her dog Scooter and spread at a few of her favorite places. A memorial resting bench will be made in her honor and placed in a spot she would have loved. Roses will be clipped for her from a beautiful yellow rose bush planted in remembrance by her family.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a date and location for a celebration of Susan's life cannot yet be determined. Those of you who wish to make a donation in the memory of Susan Sinclair-Langner may do so at www.oregondogrescue.org
The Los Altos Town Crier newspaper published a memorial tribute to Susan in the April 8, 2020 issue, Page 12 (Vol.73 No.15 issue).

2020.07.25 21:38 SomeCruzDude Bay Area excerpt from The Athletic's NWSL Expansion wish list - "Marc Benioff, Brandi Chastain, Stephen and Ayesha Curry, Kehlani, Julia Roberts"

Here's the full article
Felt the Bay Area section was worth sharing here
Can you even legit have a soccer league without a Bay Area team? Clearly you can. BUT IT DOESN’T FEEL RIGHT. The legacy of women’s soccer in the Bay Area is strong, dating back to Women’s United Soccer League. The San Jose CyberRays were one of the original eight teams in the nation’s first professional women’s soccer league, sparked by the fervor created by the USWNT when they won the 1999 World Cup on American soil.
This is why Brandi Chastain — a legend for anyone who knows anything about American soccer, or soccer, or America — would be a perfect component to the ownership team. She is from the Bay. She is still here, fighting the good fight for the sport. She is a volunteer assistant coach at Santa Clara University. Volunteer. Yes, Brandi is still about that life.
Speaking of soccer legends — Sissi can be the coach. She is an adopted member of the Bay Area community. The former attacking midfielder for the Brazil national team played for the CyberRays and just never left the Bay. She is in the trenches of Bay Area women’s soccer as head coach of a club team and coaching at the community college level for over a decade.
Stephen Curry is a huge proponent of girls in sports and is a draw all his own. He is also a soccer fan who is friends with Neymar, a big Leo Messi fan and learned moves from Steve Nash. Him, Ayesha and his girls at the games will be a spectacle. Imagine the photo op of Riley Curry playing with Bay Area-rooted soccer stars Alex Morgan and Julie Ertz — who this ownership would demand via expansion draft, of course — on the pitch before the game. Kehlani is also an incredible draw and a superstar with whom women’s soccer fans are very familiar. Not just because she is dripping with swag and her whole style screams soccer-star-chilling-after-a-game. But because her catalogue is a soundtrack of empowerment and realness.
Guess who just bought an $8.3 million Victorian home in San Francisco? Julia Roberts. What better way for the renown feminist and former NWSL pitch woman to ingratiate herself into the community?
And the big bank behind it all is Benioff. He is worth $7.7 billion. The founder of Salesforce is a well-known philanthropist in the Bay Area. He closed the gender pay gap at his company and has championed pay equality. He is worth $7.7 billion. In 2016, he was honored by the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative along with the USWNT for his inclusive leadership. Did we mention he is worth $7.7 billion? —Marcus Thompson II

2020.07.25 06:06 shecky_blue My stopdrinking story

I'm most likely older than most of you - in my late 50s now. I've known for a long time I've had a problem with drinking, and my family all have problems - both grandfathers were alcoholics (one very bad), my mom's two brothers were ragers, and of my two siblings, one is doing his/her program (I’d rather not be more specific) and the other sadly is not dealing with it.
But this is not their story.
I'm prefacing this with two stories that explain how I feel about my drinking.
One is a scene from a detective show from the '70s called Barney Miller. In one show, a guy got picked up and sent to the precinct, a borderline homeless guy who says he was walking down the street and found a place that could give him solace, and "I tried the door. It was open." Detective Miller: "Church?" Boozer: "(shakes head) Liquor store". His AA sponsor comes to pick the drunk up - this middle-aged, very upstanding guy in a three-piece business suit. Every hair is in place and his back is ramrod straight. He reminded me of a lot of nice, friendly, judgmental people I grew up with (I grew up a Southern Baptist, and if you know, you know).
Mr. Three Piece stands above the boozer and announces to him, loudly enough so that everybody in the precinct room can hear, "I'm the example of what 20 years of sobriety can do." The boozer looks up at him with a look of sorrow and panic on his face, and quietly says "...I know".
The other story was a throwaway joke on the Conan O'Brien show where he was doing that Clutch Cargo thing with a picture of George W Bush's face and somebody else's mouth talking. Fake W said "I realized that drinking was a problem with my life, so 20 years later, I quit." Substitute "20 years" with "40 years" and that is my story.
The first time I got cut off, I was 15. I grew up in the Inland Empire of Southern California and was in the John Perez Little League. At the end of the season, we went to Empire Bowl and then to Shakey's Pizza Parlor next door, and we ended up at the beer bar they had there. For some reason, our coach decided to buy a few pitchers and give us all some dixie cups of beer. I drank more than my share. The coach had a wandering eye, and when he told me "no more", I asked him, “are you looking at me?" I was a jackass from the first sip.
I had my first car accident when I was 16. My father passed away from pancreatic cancer around that time. I was too shy to invite anybody to our school prom, so me and a friend hung around outside the school with some beer called 900, which was an even-worse version of Olde English 800. There was a store on Redlands Boulevard and Waterman, Arrowhead Liquors, that would sell to you no matter your age or your sobriety (if you could stagger in, you were good). At the end of the night, I was too drunk to drive, so my friend drove me to his house, which was less than a mile away from my house, figuring I could drive that far. There was a T at the end of his street, and I turned right instead of left, They were doing construction on a culvert there, 20 feet wide and 15 feet deep, with reinforcement iron bars sticking out of the bottom. I drove past two DO NOT ENTER signs straight into the culvert. One of the pieces of rebar protruded a good six inches through the passenger seat. Another jammed through the firewall of the Ford Pinto I was driving. I went to Loma Linda medical center and got some stitches right below my lower lip (surprisingly, that was the only injury I got).
My mom picked me up, and a sheriff came by our house the next day. He heard the story of my dad’s passing, and looked at the warmed-over death that was me. They didn't even give me a ticket. My mom and I went to the construction site the next day. We never had to pay a dime; looking back, they were probably worried we’d sue them. Different times in the IE, back in 1978.
I had my second car accident at 21, leaving a friend of mine's house in Yucaipa. I'd blacked out after drinking all day, and took Interstate 10 to go home to Redlands. For some reason, I headed east instead of west, then got my bearings and headed back to I-10 West. I didn’t get very far - in Calimesa, I lost control, went up a hill on the side of the freeway, and rolled down three times to end up perfectly in the emergency lane of the freeway. I distinctly remember trying to start the Ford Pinto (I’d bought one with a dead engine for $500 and swapped the engine with the engine of the one I’d wrecked), even though every body part was bent and every idiot light was red.
For that accident, my stepdad and mom got an attorney and I was able to get out of it with a weekend in jail, some alcohol classes, and some AA meetings. AA didn’t really take at 21.
I moved up north to go to college. I liked cheap wine - Cisco or Mad Dog 20/20 - because of that poisonous, sugary high it gives you. I also drank a lot of 40 ouncers of malt liquor, most Olde English 800 or St. Ides. Best Market in downtown San Jose had 40s for $1.50, a good cheap way to go far away from wherever you were. I kept it mostly to weekends, but it was pretty much every weekend.
I am a binge drinker - I'd get hammered on Friday and Saturday nights, would spend the week sobering up, then would be ready to go the next Friday. You could always find somebody to drink with in downtown San Jose and all of my friends were heavy drinkers. I got a full time job and moved on with my aimless life.
I got laid off when I was in my mid 30s, and spent nine months on a blackout drunk with a friend of mine who has since passed away from drinking. I drank Jim Beam and soda when I had money and Cisco Berry when the unemployment money got short. I always waited until 5 p.m. to start drinking (5:01 couldn’t come soon enough). Mornings were spent poleaxed on my bed, watching Regis and Kathie Lee.
Sometime around there, I passed out in some ivy bushes near 6th and San Fernando, walking home from my friend’s house. An SJPD cop took pity on me and drove me home. I had some weed stuffed in a baggie in my sock at the time. White privilege rules! That nine month bender took a lot out of me, but I was fairly young and snapped back somewhat.
When the unemployment ran out, I started looking for work. I was a technical writer, and when employers would ask about my nine month gap in employment. I told them I was “writing a book”.
I did finally get another job, an entry-level job as an Administrative Assistant, and did that for five years until I got another tech writing job.
Then I got married, and would have a beer at home and would hide a half pint or a pint of schnapps in the bathroom or the bedroom, or under the couch, or between the couch pillows, or...God, I loved peppermint schnapps, especially the 100 proof kind. Just horrible poison. Gave you pretty bad hangovers too. I was a terrible husband but rarely missed work. I’d drink anything that was in the kitchen and pretended that my wife didn’t know.
I knew the liquor store in Santa Clara that opened at 6 am on Saturdays. I told the counterman at 7-11 to open the champagne case at 6:01 a few times. Champagne was a good start for a daytime drunk. By this time, I was having pretty bad stomach problems and would go through a roll of Rolaids or Tums some days. I taught my wife how to drive and puked up blood a few times out the window. I got a hiatal hernia and started missing work.
My marriage was bad. It wasn't my wife's fault, we were just two childish people who should never have gotten married.
One hungover morning, my wife was laying on the floor of the apartment. There is a long back story here; she'd gotten sick like this before, and she said I "didn't help her", so I called 911 this time and they brought an ambulance over. The EMT in the ambulance asked my wife if I’d hit her, and she said “yes” (she was not born here and didn’t really understand the laws here as far as DV goes). I show up at the hospital to pick her up and two policemen are on each side of her bed. They asked me what happened. I said, really angry now, “I’ll tell you exactly what happened!” I said we’d argued the night before, and I’d slapped her on top of the head, and I demonstrated the force (like a Frank Costanza slap on George Costanza's head).
This was quite a mistake.
At the hospital, I went to take a leak in the bathroom and the cops followed me and watched me as I took my dick out and pissed. When we got back to the hospital room where my wife was, we talked for a while and I heard one say to the other “ok, I think we have enough evidence now.” They gave me the perp walk and I was sat down in the back seat of the cruiser outside the hospital.
I was due at work in 30 minutes. That work date would have to wait. I was taken downtown and charged with felony spousal abuse.
By this time, my wife figured out she’d made a mistake (she told me years later she faked the whole thing because she was mad and because she didn’t understand the repercussions). I was surprised she told the police this information - I was usually the punching bag. I considered myself a happy, stupid, sloppy drunk. I still have a scar on my nose where she whacked me with a wooden coat hanger.
The bail was $25k. I got the phone number of Steve Tausan from a flyer that was posted in the jaill. Steve was a Hell’s Angel bail bondsman who later got murdered at a funeral. We paid him 5k to get me out of there. They had to get a magistrate to say it was OK to release me and they also called my wife, who vouched for me and told whoever it was that we’d get some counseling.
I finally got out three days later and told my boss I’d had a nervous breakdown, which seemed to satisfy her (give my wife credit, I was going to tell my manager the truth).
I still think about Steve Tausan sometimes. He gave me and my wife some good advice when we were at our lowest and was a super nice guy (why not, I’d just given him 5 grand).
After paying a lawyer $7,500, who got me the best judge in the county, I pled down to disturbing the peace and took 16 weeks of anger management classes. I had to refrain from any drug and alcohol usage during the probation period.
There were 60 questions in the anger management intake form. 15% of the questions were about anger management, 85% of the questions were about drug and alcohol usage. A big “ohhhhhhh...” moment for me.
I got a few good pieces of information from the class:
  1. If you get charged with something you did, remain silent. If you have to say something, lie through your teeth.
  2. Counselors smoke a lot.
  3. The system does not really protect the people it’s supposed to protect. There were some serious abusers who weren’t really owning up to it.
  4. You can mentor, you can coach, you can lead by example, but if somebody doesn’t want to change, no matter how bad their life is, you’re not going to change them.
This last advice was worth the 16 weeks and I’ve never forgotten it.
We had a checkin at the start of class; one week, when it got to me, my counselor asked me how I was and what what I’d done that weekend. I told her I was fine and "I got drunk". She said "you know, I could send you back to jail right now" (I'd forgotten the sobriety requirement). That gave me an incentive. I stopped drinking and stayed sober for seven years.
Somehow, my marriage got worse. My wife couldn't use the "you are drunk!" excuse for all our problems, so now she'd use the "wet brain!" excuse. To be fair, I was an even worse person for 90 days or so - I was angry and confused.
Things got bad in my marriage. Really bad. Accusations and recriminations.
I planned my escape and moved out with the help of a friend. She was at traffic school when I left - a bad day for her.
My new abode was a studio apartment, 15 x 15 feet square. It had a room, and a separate bathroom with a sink and a toilet. It had no kitchen and no shower. I got a gym membership and my work had showers, so that's what I did for a while. I slept on two sleeping bags for about a year until I could afford a mattress (alimony). I stayed sober and found other hobbies, joined a gospel choir and a scooter club.
Six years later after the alimony was finished, I met my current wife. She didn't know how alcoholics work. She thought I could drink. I'm very, very sorry that I can’t. It took her a long time to figure this out. I tried to drink normally, AndI’ve just wasn’t working. For many years I hid booze all over the house.
The last straw was where somebody brought over a handle of Johnny Walker Red, and it just sat there for a while, I moved it up to the booze area in our kitchen cabinet. I'd "wash the dishes" or some other crap excuse to go to the kitchen, pour a good taste, mix it with a bit of water, and drink it down. I'd always have a beer or glass of wine to excuse how drunk I was getting. Johnny wasn’t my choice, I was a big gin guy by that time, straight out of the bottles I’d hidden in the bottom drawer under the bathroom sink. I’d dump the empties in a park trash can on the way to work.
Who the hell was I fooling? Not even me.
One night, I woke up at 2:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning with a terrible hangover. I quietly got up from bed, padded over to the kitchen, quietly opened the kitchen cabinet, and got out the handle of Johnny. My wife woke up, and there I was, mixing water in my booze.
She got mad. I felt guilty and sad. I poured all the booze in our house out.
That was 45 days ago.
And...here I am. My wife gets it now, I just cannot drink. It makes her sad, it makes me sad. I tell her it's like a food allergy and it's just something I cannot do. We are deeply in love and we care about each other, I expect we always will, and she’s doing her best to understand.
Our marriage is better, my life is better. I’m starting to understand and accept all parts of me, even the bad parts.
What helps me now? Enjoying my new life. As Warren Zevon said, “enjoy every sandwich”.
I'm also really glad I found this subreddit. It helps a lot. I like the stories, and you are my people.
I’ll end with this quote from Roger Ebert:
“I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try.”
If you got this far, thanks for reading. And I will not drink with you today!

2020.05.05 15:00 OwnPlant National Super Bowl Sex Trafficking Sting Nets Over 700 Sex Buyers and 29 Pimps/Traffickers

In an effort to target and reduce sex trafficking, a national coalition of law enforcement agencies conducted coordinated sting operations that led to 752* arrests, including 723 sex buyers (or “johns”) and 29 pimps or sex traffickers.
In its 13th operation, the National Johns Suppression Initiative (NJSI) ran from Jan. 18 – Feb. 5 (Super Bowl Sunday) and included nearly 30 law enforcement agencies across 15 states. Both the arrest number and the participation level were the highest to-date for Super Bowl operations since the initiative began. Among the arresting agencies were the Houston Police Department and the Harris County Sheriff’s Police – the law enforcement agencies within the city that hosted Super Bowl 51.
Cumulative numbers from the 13th NJSI operation are as follows:
Noteworthy anecdotes from the operation include:

2020.05.04 23:50 SaveTheGhouls I won a trial de novo but haven't been paid and its been five months.

I won the trial de novo for a ticket that I prepaid on 12/1/2020 because the officer didn't show up. I received a 300$ refund for not showing up to an earlier court date regarding the ticket because I appealed the civil assessment due to a test I had(college student). The payment for the ticket itself has not been refunded to me and its been five months. I checked my bank statements and the only payment I have from the Santa Clara courthouse was the 300$ refund for the civil assessment that I appealed. Last time I went to the courthouse to ask them about this in mid February they said the payment was processed and I should be receiving it at any moment. I double checked my statements for the last four months and still nothing. What can I do at this point? I desperately need the money at the moment and its been so long since I won the ticket.

"I like mayo." - Deep Thoughts by Mark Warner channeling his inner Jack Handey

Bright And Wrong

The Trump administration abruptly removed the doctor who led the federal agency working on a coronavirus vaccine because he pushed back against the administration's efforts to promote President Trump’s favorite unproven drugs. Now he has become a whistleblower: “I am speaking out because to combat this deadly virus, science — not politics or cronyism — has to lead the way."
In Congress, House Democrats have backed off of a plan to change the House rules to allow proxy voting tomorrow, after Republicans objected.
Remember during Trump’s impeachment, a mere 400 years ago, when we learned that Trump fired an experienced career diplomat because she wouldn’t go along with his corrupt Ukraine scheme? We’ve just seen him do the same thing to a career scientist in a key public health role, in the middle of the worst public-health crisis in our lifetimes. Somebody ask Susan Collins if she still thinks Trump learned his lesson.

Look No Further Than The Crooked Media

So far, Six Feet Apart with Alex Wagner has covered the way coronavirus has impacted grocery shopping and our food supply, the rituals we have around celebrating life and grieving death, and even buying drugs. And tomorrow we’ll have the latest episode on our hands about sports! Hear how elite athletes are keeping their minds sharp and muscles strong in a moment of social isolation and deferred dreams.

Under The Radar

Incarcerated people who are already vulnerable to infection are being put to work in pandemic supply chains, leaving them at even higher risk. Though prisons across the country have become coronavirus incubators, where thousands of inmates have fallen ill, nearly every state has also drafted inmates into production lines for their pandemic responses. In New York, inmates are bottling hand sanitizer they’re not allowed to use. In Florida, they’re sewing masks for prison guards, but don’t yet have access to masks themselves. Federal prisons, which have been hit particularly hard and have implemented quarantine measures, are still sending inmates to work in factories that do not adhere to social-distancing guidelines. Those production lines will fuel disastrous outbreaks in the prisons themselves, which will inevitably spread to larger communities.

What Else?

Harvard University said it won’t take the $8.6 million it was allocated in stimulus funding, following President Trump’s demand that it return the money, after he apparently confused the CARES Act aid package for universities with the Payroll Protection Program. Meanwhile, the Education Department said it will prohibit colleges from distributing those relief funds to students who are DACA recipients, which seems like the more important fight to be having?
The death toll in Nova Scotia’s shooting over the weekend has climbed to 22. The gunman attacked at 16 locations over the course of 12 hours, and police warned the death toll would likely rise further as they continue to comb through homes that were burned down.
A new U.N. report warned that COVID-19 could double the number of people around the world facing food insecurity by the end of the year, and that swift action is needed to get food and humanitarian relief to at-risk regions.
Tyson Foods suspended operation at its largest pork plant, after over 180 coronavirus cases in Iowa were linked to the facility.
Rep. Donna Shalala (D-FL) violated federal law when she failed to disclose her 2019 stock sales, which is a little sticky for her appointment to the coronavirus-relief oversight panel, but evidently not sticky enough for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to withdraw her nomination.
Missouri has become the first state to sue China for its handling of the coronavirus. Mississippi is angling to be the second. Congratulations to these states’ Republican attorneys general on their illustrious careers doing substance-free public-relations work for Trump.
South Africa has confronted its coronavirus outbreak by sending thousands of medical workers door to door, rather than wait for infections to start overwhelming the health-care system. Imagine having a “plan” for something like a “disease outbreak.” What a world!
Museums on Twitter are competing to share the creepiest items in their collections. Honestly the plague mask is a little on the nose.

What In The World?

President Trump tweeted that the Navy should fire on Iranian boats if they “harass” U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf, which is not how the Navy’s rules of engagement work. Sure, it’s been a few weeks since Trump gave us all a reason to worry about an impending war with Iran, why not now! The tweet followed on the heels of Iran’s announcement that it had launched the country’s first military satellite into orbit. Joint Chiefs Vice Chairman Gen. John Hyten told reporters that the tweet was just meant as a warning to Iran, and that Navy commanders know not to actually act on it. Former Navy Secretary Ray Mabus said Trump probably meant the tweet as a distraction from COVID-19, which sounds like the key takeaway here.
