San Francisco:

    Employees of tech companies in San Francisco, California, can’t leave the city fast enough, fleeing for the potential tech hubs of tomorrow such as Austin, Texas, and Miami, Florida. One former San Francisco exec said: “what else can God and the world and government come up with to make the place less livable?” Miami Mayor Francis Suarez has been fielding inquiries from top executives in the tech world, such as Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, according to a report by NBC News. The report added that the mayor has also met with former Google Chairman and Clinton lackey Eric Schmidt, and the chairman of Palantir, Peter Thiel, among others. “There is absolutely no doubt that a big part of the reason why they are moving is that they feel that there is an inhospitable environment for regulation and taxation,” said Suarez. Miami is not the only city experiencing...
    SAN FRANCISCO —  San Francisco will permit restaurants to reopen for outdoor dining and hair stylists and barbers to resume limited service on Thursday, but a curfew and travel quarantine requirements will remain in place, city officials said Monday. During an online news conference, Mayor London Breed cautioned residents to continue wearing masks, distancing and frequently washing their hands as the city reopens. “Just keep in mind that this is not an open door for us to all of a sudden let our hair down and do whatever we want,” Breed said. The city expects to be placed in the most restrictive purple tier on Tuesday but can reopen as a result of the state’s decision to lift an emergency stay-home order intended to try to ensure room in intensive care units during the holiday surge. The city will continue to keep in place a curfew prohibiting nonessential businesses and...

    Jim Smiley follows us around Jackass Hill like a slippery bandito about to pickpocket a gold prospector. I can’t shake the feeling that Smiley and his California red-legged long jumper Dan’l Webster lurk among the canyon live oak and ponderosa pines, ready for another rip-roaring Gold Country escapade. Call me a crackpot with an outsized imagination. But I swear on the New York tombstone of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, this is the feeling I get as soft sunlight glances off a facsimile of a one-room miner’s cabin. We’ve reached the intersection of Fact and Fiction on the well-trodden path of Mark Twain’s California. I’ve been on the hunt for the past five years. But only now has it evolved into a serious pursuit to understand what the Golden State meant to a writer mainly associated with Hannibal, Missouri, and the Mighty Mississippi. From 1861 to 1866, Twain rambled around Lake Tahoe,...
    President Biden signed an executive order on Thursday which could have American taxpayers covering 100 percent of the cost of “homeless hotels” in cities such as San Francisco through September. Biden signed an executive order on Thursday aimed to increase reimbursements and other assistance to states in the battle against the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. Per the order, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) shall “make available under Category B of the Public Assistance program such assistance as may be required by States (including territories and the District of Columbia), local governments, and Tribal governments to provide for the safe opening and operation of eligible schools, child-care facilities, healthcare facilities, non-congregate shelters, domestic violence shelters, transit systems, and other eligible applicants.” “FEMA shall make assistance under this section available at a 100 percent Federal cost share until September 30, 2021,” the order adds. While the specific details have yet to be determined,...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – The family of a UC Berkeley freshman who disappeared last September has offered a $10,000 reward for information in connection with the case. Sydney Kaitlyn West, 19, was last seen near the Golden Gate Bridge around 6:45 a.m. on September 30, 2020. According to her family, a private investigator has followed up on dozens of tips, but none have led to West’s whereabouts.

    California lifted regional stay-at-home orders across the state Monday in response to improving coronavirus conditions, returning the state to a system of county-by-county restrictions, state health officials announced. CBS San Francisco reports the move opens the way for a return to limited restaurant dining, religious services and other activities. The order had been in place in the San Francisco Bay Area, San Joaquin Valley and Southern California, covering the majority of the state's counties.

    ATLANTA (AP) — Third baseman Pablo Sandoval has signed a minor league contract with the Atlanta Braves. Sandoval would receive a $1 million, one-year contract if he is added to the team’s 40-man roster under a deal the Braves confirmed Monday. The 34-year-old Sandoval hit .214 in 84 at-bats with the Braves and San Francisco Giants in 2020. He had no hits in two at-bats with Atlanta but was kept on the team’s postseason roster, and he had no hits in four plate appearances. Sandoval, whose nickname is Kung Fu Panda, will try to prove he can return to the form he showed in 2019, when he hit .268 with 14 homers with the Giants. The 2012 World Series MVP with San Francisco signed with the Braves late last season following his release by the Giants on Sept. 10, ending his second stint with the team. Austin Riley will enter...

    SANTA CLARA — The San Francisco 49ers have increased their minority stake in the English Premier League club Leeds United as the NFL team moves to raise its global footprint. 49ers Enterprises, the team’s sports and entertainment arm, announced Monday that its investment has more than doubled in the third year of a partnership with Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani.

    An executive order signed Thursday by President Joe Biden allows for cities to be reimbursed fully for certain kinds of emergency housing for homeless people until Sept. 30, 2021, reports The San Francisco Chronicle. The order could prove beneficial for San Francisco, which has one of the highest homeless populations and spends between $15 and $18 million to house more than 2,200 people in about 25 hotels, according to the news outlet. San Francisco City Controller Ben Rosenfield told the Chronicle about 85 percent of the hotel guests utilizing the program are likely eligible for reimbursement. “I think it’s safe to say it will apply from now until September, for those that are eligible,” he said. The Trump administration said it would only pay for 75% of the cost. Other programs to be fully reimbursed under the order includes child-care facilities, domestic violence shelters and costs for personal protective equipment....

    San Francisco hotels used to house homeless people may be fully funded by the federal government this year, thanks to an executive order signed by President Joe Biden signed last Thursday. Under the order, certain kinds of emergency housing for the homeless are eligible to be fully reimbursed through September.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — One person was wounded and cars and the Tenderloin Museum struck by bullets after a gunman opened fire late Saturday night in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood, authorities said. According to San Francisco police, officers from the SFPD Tenderloin station responded to reports of shots fired in the 200 block of Leavenworth St. The officers found one victim suffering from a gunshot wound. They applied a tourniquet to control bleeding and the victim was rushed to the hospital for treatment. The victim was reportedly in stable condition. Parked cars and the exterior of the Tenderloin Museum were also struck by gunfire. It was the third reported shooting of the year in the Tenderloin. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact police at (415) 575-4444.
    The NFL quarterback shuffle could end up bringing Jimmy Garoppolo back to the New England Patriots. There appears to be some major changes ahead for a number of teams after Matthew Stafford reportedly asked for a trade away from the Detroit Lions and Deshaun Watson told the Houston Texans that he wanted out. That will likely lead to some shifting around as both likely find new homes, with Garoppolo potentially on the move as well. As NESN reported, Stafford’s request for a trade could free up Tom Brady’s former backup in New England as the 49ers are seen as a top contender to land Stafford. Though San Francisco’s coaching staff and front office have remained committed to Garoppolo, some insiders believe that the team would pull the trigger on a deal for Stafford if it’s within their grasp, which would free up Garoppolo. As the NESN report noted, the...
    Ever since Pindar first penned it, poetry has been a salve for the soul. Through sonnet, haiku, rhyme and free-form, we have relied on poets to make sense of the world and how we live in it. But poetry is having an unexpected moment. This past year, “We Are the Dream,” an HBO documentary about Oakland’s youngest oratorical poets, took home an Emmy. Brandon Leake, a relatively unknown Stockton spoken-word poet, won NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” And poets laureate from California to New York found a new calling, posting verses to comfort families grappling with pandemic fears and the fight against racial injustice. Poetry’s current popularity has to do with its immediacy. It forces you to pay attention to what is happening in the moment, on your skin and in your heart, says Oakland poet James Cagney. “This year has forced people to look at their lives and ask questions,”...
    Trump’s presidency was bad for sex workers. SESTA/FOSTA erased the platforms we used to schedule and screen clients. ICE agents joined police officers to use “anti-trafficking” rhetoric to justify their militarization and expanded surveillance. Sex workers were among a long list of people excluded from government relief as we were targeted, shadowbanned, and barred from doing web-based work. And earlier this month white supremacist militia groups and conspiracy theorists weaponized an old story about sex slavery to help justify an attempted coup. It’s been a very scary four years for all of us and I wish I believed that the nightmare would be over soon. But as a history nerd and host of The Oldest Profession Podcast, I’m worried that we are set up to repeat the harsh lessons of history and to again conflate harsh criminal penalties with justice, and sex work with trafficking. On Jan. 25, 1917, sex...

    SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — Walk for Life is one of the most conservative events held in San Francisco each year. Participants on Saturday said there’s a reason why they converge on the city for their anti-abortion event. “San Francisco is a one-party city and I think they need to be woken up by a seed of the opposing view,” said San Francisco resident Susan Abbott, a supporter of the pro-life movement. “If we’re in a city that’s so aggressively pro-choice, more than ever we need a pro-life voice to bring that counter message,” said Autumn Lindsey, a spokesperson for Students for Life of America. The annual Walk for Life event coincides with the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion. One San Francisco woman said she’s a registered Democrat who is also pro-life. “I believe in the progressive values of equality, non-violence and...

Stafford has only played for the Lions since being taken No. 1 overall out of the University of Georgia in the 2009 NFL Draft.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Mayor London Breed has signed an ordinance to launch a rent relief program at San Francisco International Airport, modifying and waiving rent and other fees for airport concession tenants as the COVID-19 pandemic endures. The airport’s COVID-19 Emergency Rent Relief Program — unveiled on Friday — will be granted $21.3 million to help SFO tenants, with the funds being supported by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, or the CARES Act. Under the program, several fees like infrastructure and cleaning fees for SFO concessions tenants will be retroactively waived from April 2020 through December 2020. Additionally, rental car tenants at SFO will have their rents retroactively waived for March, April and May 2020, and utilities waived for April and May 2020. “We know how hard this pandemic has hit our retailers and businesses, especially at the airport where traffic has been down...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — While there will be light showers in the San Francisco Bay Area on Sunday, the region was bracing for the arrival of a moderate atmospheric river mid-week that could dump 4-7 inches of rain over the wildfire scarred areas, triggering concerns of land and mudslides in Wine County and the Santa Cruz Mountains. The region is currently locked into severe drought conditions so the rain is needed. According the National Weather Service, from Oct 1, 2020-Jan 20, 2021, San Francisco’s rainfall of 3.09″ inches ranked as the 5th driest of all time. For the same time span, the direst stretch was 1.68 inches in 2014 followed by 2.34 inches in 1918, 2.57″ inches in 1851 and 3.06″ inches in 1981. “Bright Spot, Rain ahead,” the weather service tweeted. “Good agreement in outlook. By the end of January should easily get out of top ten driest.”...
    After a truly terrible start to the year, there’s been some good news lately for San Jose Dance Theatre. You might remember that nearly 100 of the company’s handmade costumes were stolen when its storage space was broken into this month. That amounted to thousands of dollars of work and threatened the upcoming May production of “The Sleeping Beauty,” not to mention future productions including San Jose’s longest-running version of “The Nutcracker.” Artistic Director Linda Hurkmans says that on Jan. 19 a woman named Cynthia Trujillo-Houde saw something sparkly coming out of big black bags left in the street at Bernal Park, at Seventh and Hedding streets. Sixteen tutus were inside, and she posted the strange find on Next Door. Two people who were aware of the theft read her post and told her to contact San Jose Dance Theatre. The recovered costumes included the legacy “Spanish” tutus from “The...

    San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone said Thursday that Speaker Nancy Pelosi owes pro-life voters an apology, noting that no Catholic worthy of the name would be pro-choice. “Speaker Pelosi has chosen this week to impugn the motives of millions of Catholics and others for choosing to make voting on the issue of abortion their priority and accuses them of ‘selling out democracy,’” Archbishop Cordileone said in a statement. “This is not the language of unity and healing.  She owes these voters an apology.” The archbishop was responding to comments Pelosi made this week in which she criticized pro-life Americans who voted for Donald Trump over the abortion issue, accusing them of “being willing to sell the whole democracy down the river for that one issue.” “No Catholic in good conscience can favor abortion,” Cordileone said. “‘Right to choose’ is a smokescreen for perpetuating an entire industry that profits from...

    The answer to “What team should try to trade for Deshaun Watson?” is pretty much every team that doesn’t already have one of the NFL’s few elite quarterbacks. File the 49ers near the top of the list. Even though Jimmy Garoppolo has been highly effective when healthy the past three sesons, there’s a good chance San Francisco is seeking an upgrade to get to the next level of Kyle Shanahan’s dynamic offense. Watson, still only 25, would offer just that — and it would be hard for Watson to find a team with a better offensive system that also isn’t too far away from winning the Super Bowl. The 49ers are positioned to get out of Garoppolo’s contract before paying him again in 2021, especially coming off a season derailed by a high ankle sprain. Whether he’s released or traded after the new league year starts in March, the 49ers...
    San Francisco will open its first mass vaccination site Friday, just days after Mayor London Breed warned the city could soon run out of shots to give. That prediction didn’t come to fruition, but vaccines are still in short supply. At San Francisco’s first mass vaccination site, which will open Friday at City College, the 500 shots available on its first day of operation have already been accounted for. With the current scarcity, the City College site will only accept pre-scheduled appointments, and two other planned sites are still waiting to be stood up. San Francisco officials have set a goal to immunize the city’s entire population by the end of June, which would require upward of 35,000 inoculations each week. So far, about 3.6% of San Franciscans have received a single dose of the vaccine and just 0.8% have received the full two-dose regimen, according to the city’s data....

    More than 50 restauranteurs in the San Francisco Bay Area are suing California Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom over his ban on in-person dining. The restaurant and winery owners say the ban violates their constitutional rights as their businesses lose money, contending that the ban has “no rational basis,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported. It is the latest lawsuit brought over the restrictions that had covered the state since December when coronavirus cases began to surge. The Wine Country Coalition for Safe Reopening filed the lawsuit Tuesday against Newsom shortly over a month after intensive care unit (ICU) capacity dropped below 15 percent in the San Francisco Bay Area. The lack of available beds in ICUs triggered a regional order that banned indoor dining and drinking. The coalition alleged that Newsom and the state’s public health department had not shown scientific proof that outdoor dining is more dangerous than indoor shopping at a...

    By Josh Eidelson | Bloomberg Instacart Inc. plans to terminate about 1,900 employees’ jobs, including the only unionized positions in the U.S., representing a fulsome embrace of the gig economy. The grocery delivery company already classifies most of its workers as independent contractors, whose ranks have ballooned to more than 500,000 during the coronavirus pandemic. But starting in 2015, the company hired a small subset of workers as employees, who under U.S. law are entitled to protections like minimum wage and can be subject to more direction and training by their boss. “What we found is that our shoppers require training and supervision, which is how you improve the quality of the picking,” Instacart Chief Executive Officer Apoorva Mehta said at the time. “You can’t do that when they are independent contractors.” Now, Instacart is moving in the other direction, eliminating 1,877 employees’ positions, including those of 10 workers in...

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Health officials in San Francisco on Wednesday said the city intends to vaccinate virtually every resident in the city by June in spite of vaccine dose supply limitations. According to San Francisco Health Network CEO Roland Pickens, at least 28,501 residents in the city have received at least one dose of coronavirus vaccine as of Tuesday. Bay Area COVID-19 Vaccine Resources Page Most of those vaccine recipients are health care workers and nursing home workers and residents, according to Pickens. However, that figure does not include vaccinations administered by Kaiser Permanente or Sutter Health, both of which report aggregated vaccination data to the state rather than per-county figures. Regardless, Pickens said Wednesday during a special hearing of the Board of Supervisors’ Public Safety and Neighborhood Services Committee, an average of roughly 3,000 vaccine doses are being administered in San Francisco daily.

    In a proposal that would shake up the city’s day-to-day response to its homelessness crisis, San Francisco community leaders on Tuesday unveiled a plan to take police out of the equation. Under the new framework, police would no longer respond to complaints about encampments or aggressive panhandling, reports of an unhoused person trespassing and other non-emergency calls involving homeless San Franciscans. Instead, those calls and more would be rerouted to civilian members of a new Compassionate Alternate Response Team, known as CART. The proposal is another step in San Francisco’s ongoing police reform effort, and comes as cities throughout the Bay Area and around the country are grappling with demands to “defund” their police departments and reinvest in alternative programs. “What we are doing right now as a city is completely failing,” San Francisco Supervisor Matt Haney, who supports CART, said Tuesday during a Zoom call announcing the proposal. “A...

    SAN FRANCISCO —  San Francisco’s public health department will run out of COVID-19 vaccine Thursday because the city’s allocation dropped substantially from a week ago and doses that had to be discarded were not replaced, city officials said Tuesday. Dr. Grant Colfax, San Francisco’s director of public health, said at a news conference that the city received 12,000 doses a week ago and asked for the same number this week. Instead, the city received only 1,775 doses. On top of that, the city received 8,000 doses of a Moderna vaccine that had to be scrapped because some people in San Diego had allergic reactions to doses from that same batch, prompting the state to issue a warning. Colfax said those 8,000 doses, ordered withdrawn by the state, have not been replaced. Throughout the state, local health officials have complained of difficulty scheduling vaccine appointments because they lack confidence in how...

The mayor said that San Francisco is still seeing 333 new cases per day, but the case numbers seem to be increasing at a slower rate, with the reproductive rate at 1.06 but gradually inching down. “Most importantly, more and more people are getting vaccinated every single day, especially our seniors who are the most vulnerable to getting sick and dying from COVID” said Breed. “This should give us all some very real hope. It’s going to be a long road, but the road will begin to lighten.” Breed went on to outline some of the progress the city has made as far as administering the COVID...

    Getty Kirk Cousins has been a want for 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan for years. This offseason could present the opportunity for the Vikings to make a move. The secret is out that San Francisco 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan has a soft spot for Kirk Cousins. In the two seasons they spent together in Washington, Shanahan developed a great respect for Cousins. “I liked how efficient he was coming out of college watching him on film, and then being with him for years and seeing firsthand how talented he was as a thrower,” Shanahan said, per NBC Sports. “I also saw how his mind worked and how he worked at it. He understood everything that was happening whether it was good or bad, and always tried to learn from things.” Cousins, considered a favorite to land the 49ers quarterback gig, wound up with the Minnesota Vikings instead in 2018.
