Weekend Reading 10.24.20

During the pandemic, I’ve been teaching my teenage son to cook, and the lesson this week was the art of making simple red spaghetti sauce. I find that involving him in the cooking accomplishes two things, it gives him confidence to make other recipes for himself and he’s actually enjoying the food more. Win win! This week on the Restless Art site I added two new prints, ‘Red Barn’ from the nearby Sonoma hills and ‘Geranium Show’ from the streets of Lisbon. I’ve been sharing some of my deeper tho...

Uber and Lyft Need To Make Drivers Employees, Appeals Court Rules

An appeals court ruled Thursday evening that an injunction issued against Uber and Lyft over the status of their drivers was an appropriate measure. CNET reports: The injunction was issued in August by Judge Ethan Schulman of the San Francisco Superior Court, who ruled that the ride-hailing companies must start classifying their drivers as employees in the state. The judge allowed the companies 10 days to appeal the ruling, which they did. The First Appellate District court in San Francisco hear...

George Gascón for Los Angeles County district attorney

Earlier this year, ahead of the March primary, this editorial board endorsed George Gascón to serve as Los Angeles County’s district attorney. The world has certainly changed since we issued that endorsement, but the core reasoning of why we endorsed Gascón over incumbent Jackie Lacey still holds. At the time, we noted that Lacey’s approach to criminal justice reform was mostly out of step with Los Angeles County residents. Inconsistent with the county, Lacey opposed Propositions 47 and 57, oppo...

Goodbye Gap: Retailer, to shutter 350 stores by 2024

By Anne D’Innocenzio | The Associated Press Gap Inc. is moving away from the nation’s malls. The San Francisco-based retailer, which was for decades a fixture at shopping malls around the country, said Thursday that it will be closing 220 of its namesake Gap stores — or one-third of its store base — by early 2024. That will result in 80% of its remaining Gap stores being in off-mall locations. As part of its restructuring, Gap Inc. said it also plans to close 130 of its Banana Republic stores in...

California court says Uber, Lyft drivers are employees

A California appeals court on Thursday upheld an order requiring Uber and Lyft to treat their California drivers as employees instead of independent contractors, less than two weeks before voters will be asked to exempt the ride-hailing giants from the state’s gig economy law. The decision won’t have any immediate impact because it doesn’t take effect for at least 30 days, well after the Nov. 3 vote on Proposition 22. Uber and Lyft — who along with DoorDash have heavily bankrolled the ballot mea...

Why San Francisco felt like the set of a sci-fi flick

On Sept. 9, many West Coast residents looked out their windows and witnessed a post-apocalyptic landscape: silhouetted cars, buildings and people bathed in an overpowering orange light that looked like a jacked-up sunset.The scientific explanation for what people were seeing was pretty straightforward. On a clear day, the sky owes its blue color to smaller atmospheric particles scattering the relatively short wavelengths of blue light waves from the sun. An atmosphere filled with larger particle...

CA appeals court upholds ruling that Uber and Lyft must classify drivers as employees

Uber and Lyft must classify their drivers as employees, an appellate court ruled yesterday evening. However, the decision will be stayed for 30 days after the court issues the remittitur, which has not happened yet. That means depending on how ballot measure Proposition 22 goes, this case may not end up being the deciding factor in how Lyft and Uber classify their drivers in California. Throughout the case, Uber and Lyft have argued that reclassifying their drivers as employees would cause...

Trump’s Last Hurrah Was Saturated With Racist Appeals

The President answered a question about his history of racism at Thursday night’s presidential debate by telling moderator Kristen Welker, whose mother is Black, “I am the least racist person in this room.”  “I can’t even see the audience because it’s so dark, but I don’t care,” he added.  It was a characteristic bit of wind, but also representative of Trump’s strategy for years: Demonize immigrants, call Black athletes protesting for civil rights sons of bitches — and then simply ig...

Ex-49er Dana Stubblefield Sentenced To 15 Years To Life For Raping Developmentally Disabled Woman

SAN JOSE, Calif.

Rams see Kai Forbath as a seasoned alternative at kicker

THOUSAND OAKS — Help for the Rams’ kicking game is on the way, but exactly when Kai Forbath will get his chance is up in the air. Forbath, the former Notre Dame High (Sherman Oaks) and UCLA kicker whom the Rams signed on Tuesday, won’t be able to clear the league’s COVID-19 protocols and join the team until Sunday. That makes it likely that struggling rookie Samuel Sloman will still be kicking for the Rams (4-2) in their Monday night game against the Chicago Bears (5-1) — with Forbath, a nine-ye...

America’s Nuclear Sponge

The is a colorfully named Cold War-era concept whereby stationing a massive collection of ICBMs in sparsely populated areas of the United States would serve to “soak up” a nuclear attack from the Soviet Union, drawing fire away from populated targets like NYC, Chicago, and Seattle. Before the development of nuclear-armed submarines that can hide their locations at sea, ICBMs were the crux of American nuclear strategy. Today, however, their only purpose is to draw fire away from other targets ...

Garoppolo, 49ers Hoping To Add To Patriots’ Recent Woes

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP/CBS13) – When Jimmy Garoppolo arrived in New England as a rookie in 2014, it didn’t take long for his teammates to give Tom Brady’s new backup a nickname. “What a lot of us used to call him is a ‘gamer,'” Patriots veteran safety Devin McCourty recalled this week. “From the first time he took snaps in the preseason, he’d be making plays – whether it’s staying alive in the pocket, whether it’s making a great throw. “I would just say he was a guy who somehow made big plays.” G...
