1:32 am
10:30 special meeting? >> item number 1, resolution did he nating central city extra to be the neighborhood outreach newspaper of the city and county for the central city neighborhood; northside publications/marina times to be the neighborhood outreach knew paper of the city and county for the northern san francisco neighborhood; west portal monthly to be the neighborhood outreach newspaper of the city and county for the west portal neighborhood; and potrero view to be the neighborhood outreach knew paper of the city and county for the potrero hill, dogpatch, bayview, soma, mission bay neighborhoods to provide outreach advertising for fiscal year 2014-2015. >> okay, thanks. we have our office of contract administration here. thank you. >> good afternoon, chairman farrell and supervisor mar. thank you for hearing me. my name is deirdre darling. i'm representing the office of contract administration and i'm here requesting your recommendation and approval for a resolution designating certain periodicals of the city's outreach periodical for the upcoming fiscal year. outreach advertising is intended to meet the public information needs of those communities and neighborhoods which may not be adequately served by the official newspapers.
1:33 am
the contract term would start august 1 and go through june 30 of 2015. the estimated contract value is $18,000 to be divided between the awarded periodicals. the admin code requires the purchaser each year to invite bids for outreach advertising for the next fiscal year. the code specifies certain minimum requirement periodical must meet in the environment [speaker not understood]. the purchaser performs the valuation and reports the point totals to the board and makes recommendations. historically [speaker not understood] and made its recommendation to the board based on the response of bidder with the highest point total for the outreach communities. the admin code also states, there upon, the board of supervisors shall by resolution
1:34 am
choose and designate periodicals as the outreach periodicalses of the city and county for the ensuing fiscal year. the board of supervisors in past years had decided to designate more than one periodical per outreach community in certain neighborhoods in san francisco and have split the contracts between most, if not all bidders who responded whether or not they were responsive to meeting all the requirements. oca sent bids to approximately 50 newspapers and received 11 responseses. of those 11 responses, six were responsive. the six newspapers are marina time, central city extra, west portal monthly, potrero view, small business exchange, and bay area reporter. we also received five bids from
1:35 am
periodicals that were nonresponsive because they were either printed outside of san francisco or were not printed frequently enough. ~ to meet the admin code requirements. those newspapers are the san francisco bayview, [speaker not understood] daily, world journal, and [speaker not understood], also the western he edition. in conclusion, the purchaser has drafted the resolutions for outreach periodicalses based on the past practice of recommending the bidders who are responsive with the highest point score. ~ the board of supervisors has the option to exercise its discretion to designate the recommended periodicals or if the board so chooses, to follow past practice to split the contract between most, if not
1:36 am
all of the periodicals who submitted bids. last year [speaker not understood] were awarded to all who submitted bids. are there any questions? >> okay, thanks very much. >> a real quick question. >> sure, supervisor mar. >> are there any requirements from language access ordinance on how notice needs to be in languages by language minority populations? i'm just wondering because i know the small business exchange being designated for the latino or chinese or immigrant communities, i'm just wondering if they have the abilities to communicate in languageses other than english. so, i'm just asking what are the requirements under our language access ordinance or even just that we follow so that populations that might not be proficient in english would still have adequate notice from our city. >> well, i'm not familiar with
1:37 am
the language ordinance. the admin code 2.8 does not require that the notices be published in any particular language. however, the outreach newspapers that represent the chinese community and hispanic community tend to be published in that language. the small business exchange is a little different. they represent minority small business owners. we do have non-responsive bid submissions from foreign language newspapers [speaker not understood], publishes in spanish. cinta daily and world journal publish in chinese. >> thank you. >> mr. rose, do we have a report from you on this item? >> no, there is no report, supervisor. >> okay, thanks. so, we'll open this up to public comment. anybody wish to comment on item
1:38 am
number 1 hereof our special 10:30? seeing none public comment is closed. [gavel] >> so, supervisor mar, we have options here, either to accept all the responsive bids or do what we have in past practice, broaden it to all the nonresponsive bids as well. i would say that would be my preference, better to be inclusive. [speaker not understood]. that would be my recommendation. >> i would support that. >> okay. so, we have a motion, then, to amend this item to accept both -- to split this contract up between all the responsive bids and the nonresponsive bids submitted. >> so move. >> thank you. >> that work? we can take that amendment without objection. [gavel] >> and the underlying item as amended we can also take that without objection. [gavel] >> thank you very much. madam clerk, do we have any other business in front of us? >> no, mr. chair. >> thanks, everyone. we are adjourned. [gavel]
1:39 am

[applause] >> thank you. thank you reverend. thanks for being here as well and blessing us. good evening everyone. welcome to herst play ground in sunnydale.
1:41 am
i am grateful to the chief and supervisor cohen and park and rec and juvenile justice here. we have so many departments that worked together to make sure that this place is safe and we welcome everybody back here. i know that everybody feels the tragedies of things that happened a few weeks ago, but this community is strong because of its people, but saying we want to bring people back to our own park. this is the people's park right here at herst play ground and we want to make sure on this national night out not only do we celebrate across the city but we bring people out to their parks, to our parks, to our neighborhood to celebrate to reclaim the areas we want to be
1:42 am
safe and collaborate with our youth and employment organizations, our education institutions to work together with seniors and families to make sure that there is no place in the city that is unsafe and particularly here, so i want to say thank you to everybody for coming out tonight, and that this should be yet another beginning, not just this one night. this is everybody's park. this is where the kids can feel safe to play where the parents can bring them out and watch over them where all the different agencies can have and create programs that support them. where our seniors can have a walk and feel the vibrancy of the city and invest in play grounds like this. you like this new play ground? yeah. [applause] and soon we will get the sand out of that play area and replace it with some good things that don't have the sand in
1:43 am
them. we're going to continue investing in this neighborhood and in the people especially but i want to say again thank you to supervisor cohen. your wonderful leadership out here working with us. thank you to tamika moss and the program working with the residents of sunnydale and the community. thank you to all of the different agencies. i know public works is out here doing the fiscal things with rec and park but we're all here to invest in the people that live out here and i want to say thank you again to the police department. you are -- all of you are on the front lines helping us not just with your service but also making sure that community policing leads our effort here, and how about creating more jobs for our youth making sure we do the right thing because it's not just about police services. it's
1:44 am
about youth services. making sure our public health is supported out here. give people the recovery that they need. helping with services -- our youth organizations, our health and human services program, our jobs program working together to make our community strong. this is for everyone. it's not just prevent crime. it's about encouraging people to fulfill their whole lives richly. this is what this play ground means to me and i plan to be out here often and embrace our kids and grow up freely strongly safely in our neighborhood. thank you everybody for being out here tonight. [applause] >> thank you sir. all right. you know advisory board for the police is the one that organized this. we really want to thank the mayor and the police chief for bringing all these resources together so that all that you
1:45 am
can see came together. we are also blessed to sur police chief here so let's welcome our police chief suhr. >> thanks reverend. [applause] >> i got to thank the ingleside sea path as well and acknowledge the captain over there for coordinating with park and rec. how about the rides and jumping things? this is exactly how national night out is supposed to be. this is a national event. it's all across the country and it's just great that this year again after having such a sad event that occurred up the block just last month this year -- this is bigger than last year. we were here last year and i don't think there is anyway it was bigger than this so it's great to see everyone came back to the play ground
1:46 am
where kids and community should always be able to go and we and the mayor and the rest of the city agencies here are committed to this neighborhood and this park should be for the kids and the community, not just on national night out but any night of the work to come and enjoy so there will be cops here regularly. soon enough they will be using this clubhouse as a place they use as the base of operations and there's not -- i can't say enough how much time we want to spend with the young people in san francisco and for all of the people that contributed tonight and for the mayor and his leadership supervisor cohen, the district attorney, and others and i think you jinxed us with saying the rain isn't coming and have a good time and next year will be even better. >> thank you sir. we are
1:47 am
blessed to have the supervisor for district 10 so let's welcome supervisor cohen. >> hello family. hello. what a beautiful day. my god we couldn't have prayed for something better than this. thank you for everyone for coming out. thank you. because you know what national night out is about? it's very simple. it's one night when cities all around the country come together to say we're taking back our parks, taking back our streets, taking back our cities, taking it back from the violent crime element and reclaiming it as a safe haven for the community. there are people here that deserve some recognition. i want to recognize the community partners and specifically list up ms. ruth jackson sitting here in the green. this woman deserves serious recognition and love. i want to recognize the
1:48 am
fact that we have a true community. you look around here we've got sano ans, asian pacific islander community, the chinese community, african-americans, caucasians. we have literally the physical man festation of what makes san francisco biewsm. we have the latino community. this is incredible. we have young people. we have seniors this. is exactly what this is about and what visitation valley is about and i want to thank all of the sponsors and partners who made this possible and all of my friends out there in the back serving and grilling and packaging food and giving from their hearts and that's what this is about. this is a labor of love so remember that as we continue to have a good time tonight. i am malia cohen. thank you. [applause] >> thank you very much and we
1:49 am
have -- blessed to have our district attorney here, district attorney gas con. >> thank you reverend and mayor and malia. the essence of community is the ability to come together and have good people use the open space, and today not only are we celebrating people coming together and using this park, but also we're celebrating the fact that as a community we refuse to allow violence to define us. we as a community are coming together, neighbors, police officers, supervisors, the district attorney's office, our probation because we refuse to allow our community to be defined by the worse moment -- by a bad moment of violence, so i am very proud of being here today. this park
1:50 am
is a wonderful place. it's a place that we want to want to make sure the community uses and we are committed to ensuring this is a safe place for all to play. thank you. [applause] >> thank you. i also want to recognize rec and park for really providing so much of what you see here, the table and the chairs and the bouncy houses and that thing, whatever it is. it's been fantastic and a blessing with being accommodating and with this we have a closing prayer. this will go on to 8:00 o'clock but we want god's blessing on this park and now to forever only things happen to you. we ask you for your spirit here and god rebuke all violence and evil
1:51 am
from this area. we pray in the name jesus. we know you can do it. have grace and amen. thank you very much. [applause] >> what if you could make a memorial that is more about information and you are never fixed and it can go wherever it wants to go? everyone who has donated to it could use it, host it, share it. >> for quite a great deal of team she was hired in 2005, she struggled with finding the correct and appropriate visual expression. >> it was a bench at one point.
1:52 am
it was a darkened room at another point. but the theme always was a theme of how do we call people's attention to the issue of speci species extinction. >> many exhibits do make long detailed explanations about species decline and biology of birds and that is very useful for lots of purposes. but i think it is also important to try to pull at the strings inside people. >> missing is not just about specific extinct or endangered species. it is about absence and a more fundamental level of not knowing what we are losing and we need to link species loss to habitat loss and really focuses much on the habitat. >> of course the overall mission of the academy has to do with
1:53 am
two really fundamental and important questions. one of which is the nature of life. how did we get here? the second is the challenge of sustainability. if we are here how are we going to find a way to stay? these questions resonated very strongly with maya. >> on average a species disappears every 20 minutes. this is the only media work that i have done. i might never do another one because i'm not a media artist per se but i have used the medium because it seemed to be the one that could allow me to convey the sounds and images here. memorials to me are different from artworks. they are artistic, but memorials have a function. >> it is a beautiful scupltural
1:54 am
objective made with bronze and lined with red wood from water tanks in clear lake. that is the scupltural form that gives expression to maya's project. if you think about a cone or a bull horn, they are used to get the attention of the crowd, often to communicate an important message. this project has a very important message and it is about our earth and what we are losing and what we are missing and what we don't even know is gone. >> so, what is missing is starting with an idea of loss, but in a funny way the shape of this cone is, whether you want to call it like the r.c.a. victor dog, it is listen to the earth and what if we could create a portal that could look at the past, the present and the future? >> you can change what is then missing by changing the software, by changing what is projected and missing. so, missing isn't a static
1:55 am
installation. it is an installation that is going to grow and change over time. and she has worked to bring all of this information together from laboratory after laboratory including, fortunately, our great fwroup of researche e-- g researchers at the california academy. >> this couldn't have been more site specific to this place and we think just visually in terms of its scupltural form it really holds its own against the architectural largest and grandeur of the building. it is an unusual compelling object. we think it will draw people out on the terrace, they will see the big cone and say what is that. then as they approach the cone tell hear these very unusual sounds that were obtained from the cornell orinthology lab. >> we have the largest recording of birds, mammals, frogs and insects and a huge library of
1:56 am
videos. so this is an absolutely perfect opportunity for us to team up with a world renown, very creative inspirational artist and put the sounds and sights of the animals that we study into a brand-new context, a context that really allows people to appreciate an esthetic way of the idea that we might live in the world without these sounds or sites. >> in the scientific realm it is shifting baselines. we get used to less and less, diminished expectations of what it was. >> when i came along lobsters six feet long and oysters 12 inches within they days all the oyster beds in new york, manhattan, the harbor would clean the water. so, just getting people to wake up to what was just literally there 200 years ago, 150 years ago. you see the object and say what
1:57 am
is that. you come out and hear these intriguing sounds, sounds like i have never heard in my life. and then you step closer and you almost have a very intimate experience. >> we could link to different institutions around the globe, maybe one per continent, maybe two or three in this country, then once they are all networked, they begin to communicate with one another and share information. in 2010 the website will launch, but it will be what you would call an informational website and then we are going to try to, by 2011, invite people to add a memory. so in a funny way the member rely grows and there is something organic about how this memorial begins to have legs so to speak. so we don't know quite where it will go but i promise to keep on it 10 years. my goal is to raise awareness and then either protect forests from being cut down or reforest
1:58 am
in ways that promote biodiversity. >> biodiverse city often argued to be important for the world's human populations because all of the medicinal plants and uses that we can put to it and fiber that it gives us and food that it gives us. while these are vital and important and worth literally hundreds of billions of dollars, the part that we also have to be able to communicate is the more spiritual sense of how important it is that we get to live side by side with all of these forms that have three billion years of history behind them and how tragic it would be not commercially and not in a utilitarian way but an emotio l emotional, psychological, spiritual way if we watch them one by one disappear. >> this is sort of a merger between art and science and advocacy in a funny way getting people to wake unand realize
1:59 am
what is going on -- wake up and realize what is going on. so it is a memborial trying to get us to interpret history and look to the past. they have always been about lacking at the past so we proceed forward and maybe don't commit the same mistakes. . >> hey entices neiman here and this week is no expectation that is the weekly buzz pr this wednesday checkout people in the placing the 24 market street music festive puts on sdmerntsdz from july to october and this 13 join us from high waters at
