in 2022 the VC fundraising climate soured, with valuations dropping 50%+
rather than fundraise and take a huge dilution hit, founders of well-performing companies cut their expenditures, invested in top-line growth, and opened a line of credit (usually at SVB)

A teammate visiting San Francisco for an offsite called me frantically last night. After dinner at Fisherman’s Wharf they came back to a smashed car window and 2 stolen backpacks. $10K in gear lost, passports gone, etc. #SanFrancisco
“Laptop bags were in the trunk, nothing visible from the street”, a typical description of a smash & grab, yet thieves were able to find the specific car and knew to pull the rear seat down and reach into the trunk… how?
I explained, “these aren’t homeless ransoming smashing windows. These are professionals using blue tooth scanners to find laptop bags. And idle iPad, Bose headphones, etc all emit Bluetooth”

I want to thank the city of #Calgary for being such a gracious host as I attended the @recovery_summit this week. The "Alberta Model" is a blueprint for addiction treatment and recovery in North America. #ROSC #AlbertaModel Image
This model embraces the full continuum of care from harm reduction, including medically assisted treatment and OPS sites, all the way to residential treatment while keeping the focus on building recovery capital. ImageImageImageImage
With a plan to add thousands of beds in recovery based therapeutic communities, this model offers hope to those experiencing homelessness and substance use disorder. (addiction) by offering transitional housing after treatment. ImageImageImage

Alberta is light years ahead of us on drug treatment and #recovery. But, there's always hope for change. "With free addiction treatment, recovery is possible." #SanFrancisco Image
10,000 treatment spaces coming on line in Alberta 🇨🇦. If only #California would invest in addiction treatment this way. @GavinNewsom Image
Medically assisted treatment as part of the continuum of care to help sustain recovery from addiction and overcome withdrawals from drugs like Fentanyl. They have it all. Image

Some piece of crap kicked a woman’s car door in at South SALINAS’ Nob Hill grocery. The woman had three kids in her car and was scared. A witness came to my house to tell me about the crime because this dude was following him on a bike. He knocked on my door and I was home.
Part 2 🤣

So I come out and this dude is talking smack to the witness, who is now a victim. The suspect comes up on my driveway and threatens the witness. So I gotta go back in my house - get my shoes on 🤣 and deal with it BUT

@SalinasPD (for once in a while) is in South.
Part 3

When I came out the door with my shoes on the suspect took off on his bike. (Yeah it’s a mentally ill unsheltered living on the Block dude). He blurts out my house number, says he will remember it and makes it down to the Temple Beth El which is at Riker and Nissen.

HOSING DOWN THE HOMELESS: After viral video and global outrage, San Francisco gallery owner Collier Gwin arrested today for using water hose to spray down homeless woman on sidewalk.

VIRAL VIDEO: After all the outrage, Gwin apologized for this incident caught on camera more than a week ago. He claimed the woman was harrassing customers and initially refused to leave. #SanFrancisco
PROSECUTORS GOING AFTER GWIN: Gwin charged with misdemeanor battery for the alleged intentional and unlawful spraying of water on and around a woman experiencing homelessness. I did not know this was on the books in #SanFrancisco.

You want the truth about Fentanyl on the street? I did a walk through the city with @samquinones7 and break it down here and in the clips to follow with @mattdorsey. @LondonBreed @RafaelMandelman @BrookeJenkinsSF @SFPDChief @Ahsha_Safai @JoelEngardio #SanFrancisco
San Francisco has become codependent in the name of compassion in the face of an unprecedented addiction crisis. Would you treat your own child this way? @mattdorsey explains here:
We have hundreds of organized drug dealers on the street. They work in shifts, like a business. And the drug they're selling (Fentanyl) is killing 2 people per day in #SanFrancisco. It's destroying the most vulnerable in our community and must stop.

En #SanFrancisco, el comité de reparaciones ha hecho una propuesta sorprendente: pagar 5 millones de dólares a cada residente negro de larga estancia en la ciudad y condonar totalmente tanto las deudas educativas como personales que haya contraído Image
Con estas reparaciones se busca "hacer frente a las políticas públicas creadas explícitamente para subyugar a la población negra de San Francisco, manteniendo y ampliando la intención y el legado de la esclavitud"
"Si bien ni San Francisco ni #California adoptaron formalmente la institución de la esclavitud...

This is a signing that will not only inspire our club to achieve even greater success but inspire our league, our nation and future generations, boys and girls to be the best version of themselves," the club wrote. #SanFrancisco #SaveWarriorNun #ScreamVI… It also gives the 37-year-old Ronaldo a massive payday in what could be the final contract of his career. Media reports have claimed the Portugal star could be earning up to $200 million a year from the deal. While the signing is a massive boost for Middle Eastern soccer, it will also fuel the debate about Saudi Arabia using so-called "sportswashing" to boost the country's image internationally.

Another reason why I should leave San Francisco is the fact that I have fought every day for this city and rarely ever is there any support or team work. Whenever I walk through San Francisco I only ever see @bettersoma , @mattdorsey and Mr. J J in the trenches on the frontlines.
People complain every day but don’t ever do anything about it. It makes everything seem pointless. @michelletandler talks about fentanyl. When is she going to talk about our fentanyl emergency petition that has almost 1000 signatures? It takes two seconds to share petition.
I love @GMcDee2 @JacquiBerlinn because they aren’t picking and choosing what is “cool” to support. They support everything that is dedicated to combating fentanyl. They not only do their own fighting but they also support other people fights instead of picking what is “cool.”

The State Of San Francisco: A thread about the corrupt cycle of Local Leaders, Non-profits and Fentanyl.

Fentanyl Emergency Petition: Image
San Francisco's fentanyl humanitarian crisis & inhumane street conditions continue to be a political cudgel for the worst offenders, outside & inside of this City. For kids growing up in The Bay Area, it was THE CITY. As in The Greatest City in the World. Now it's dying...
This month, the city closed down its Tenderloin Center in Union Square, a site that all of the people who work in the San Francisco administration knew about a while ago was hosting controlled fentanyl consumption events (but were not supposed to admit to) which enabled fentanyl.

1/On Friday. Dec. 23, Judge Ryu granted a preliminary injunction to stop #SanFrancisco from enforcing ordinances that prohibit involuntarily homeless individuals from sitting, lying, or sleeping on public property. However, this does not mean #sweeps will cease completely.
2/The ruling, “does not prevent the city from enforcing laws against public nuisance, protecting accessibility and sidewalk path of travel, or abating unsanitary conditions.”…
3/These types of abatements happen in #Berkeley, which has serious consequences for #unhoused residents’ mental and physical health. “When you consistently lose your stuff in this manner, you begin to lose your mind,” said Eren, a camp resident.

🧵Abalonia: the island nation that never was.

Cortes Bank lays 100 miles off the coast of #California. It's rich with abalone and rises nearly to the ocean surface.

In 1966 a group of investors tried to sink a freighter on it and claim it as the new nation of Abalonia. #1960s Image
Lying 100 miles offshore, Cortes Bank sits in international waters- outside the jurisdiction of the USA.

The group planned to establish a cannery, a runway- even a casino.

They would get rich harvesting the bounty of Cortes Bank in their new island nation! Image
They brought a mothballed World War II freighter named the Jalisco out of storage in #SanFrancisco Bay and had her towed out to Cortes Bank.

Many investors had put their life savings into the project- and even mortgaged their houses.

Big takeaways from our survey of fix-and-flippers last week: 1) Rates have massively slowed transactions and prices are falling broadly. 2) Lots of talk about flippers changing strategies, holding-and-renting instead of flipping, or exiting the space entirely.

#Atlanta flipper: “Many highly-leveraged flippers will need to go out of pocket to sell or will default on no-recourse loans. We will not see improvement until the 2nd half of 2024. Many will not make it to that point and there will be some bargains for cash-flush investors.”
#Baltimore flipper: “Sellers are still not reacting to market shifts. Sellers need to lower prices.”

1/ California's Supt. of Education @TonyThurmond took swift action after our investigation exposed how few schools are equipped to reverse deadly drug overdoses on campus.

Teen overdose deaths in California recently spiked to a nation-wide high.

2/ An overdose antidote, known as Narcan/naloxone, can bring people back to life. It's a nasal spray & the CA legislature first gave schools the power to use it on students 6 years ago. The state even offers Narcan kits for free, but we learned few schools have them on campus.
3/ We surveyed 10 largest school districts in #SanFrancisco Bay Area, home to nearly 500 schools and 320,000 students.
We learned:
- students have suffered overdoses at at least 40% of those school districts
- only 3% high schools have Narcan on campus; 0 middle & elem. schools.

What this opinion by @JustMrPhillips fails to mention is the 10+ times they mentioned the word "recovery." You know how many times @SF_DPH mentions "recovery" in there new 3 year OD prevention plan? Three times. Three. In a 72 page plan. #SanFrancisco…
The bottom line is that @mattdorsey @BrookeJenkinsSF @LondonBreed & @SFPDChief at least recognize recovery. I was in the Tenderloin and SOMA yesterday. There's a subset of people that need a "nudge" toward recovery. If we leave them out there, they'll die.
Illicit Fentanyl has changed the game. It crosses all demographic lines. It doesn't care who you are. You can be an OG homeless guy or a young teenager. We must intervene with a combination of healthcare and public safety approaches.

Attending the @sfstandard-organized debate between District 8 supervisor Rafael Mandelman and challenger Kate Stoia.

So far, both presenting themselves as the voice of grievance against the #SanFrancisco Board of Supervisors — Stoia more so, but both. Image
Mandelman says most people in #SanFrancisco understand we need more affordable housing *and* more market rate housing, but that the Board of Supervisors doesn’t seem to agree.
Stoia says getting housing built takes too long — the permitting, but also the local control. She believes #SanFrancisco needs to do more to prevent neighbors from blocking denser building. “Everybody is in favor of housing until it’s right next to them.”
