Is Twitter dead? Twitter is under new management, and the new CEO, Elon Musk, needs to fix Twitter Blue. After the election, Elon gave the green light for anybody to purchase the blue verification check mark via Twitter Blue. The Twitter elites in Hollywood are upset by this new feature, and Elon is standing firm on his decision by saying, “Widespread verification will democratize journals & empower the voice of the people." Is Elon correct? President Joe Biden is traveling the world, and he continues to be a national embarrassment.

In this episode of the Bald Brad Show, A "noose" was found at the Obama Presidential Center site in Chicago late last week, after which the outfit building the $830 million center immediately halted construction and said it's holding anti-bias training for staff and workers. But some notable conservatives are skeptical about the origins of the "noose." Moreover, a reporter tried to spin the latest inflation report, claiming it shows that "disinflation" is happening. But the reporter excluded a key metric that disproved his own claim. Lastly, a California county sheriff's office announced that it will stop its daytime police patrol due to a "catastrophic staffing shortage throughout the agency." Tehama County, which is located north of Sacramento and has a population of 65,000, will suspend daytime patrol services starting November 20.

The Obama Presidential Center isn't the only major development hoping to call Jackson Park home. For years, Tiger Woods' design firm TGR Design has proposed a PGA-caliber golf course on the South Side. The proposed 18-hole course would combine the Jackson Park and South Shore golf courses, complete with new facilities, practice holes, and a $30 million underpass at 67th and South Shore Drive. But it could also mean the loss of affordable greens, removal of trees, and potential destruction of the South Shore Nature Sanctuary as it currently exists. We talk with Tracy Raoul, Chairperson of Jackson Park Golf Association, Emily Dupree, the Hyde Park resident behind the Twitter profile Save Our Sanctuary. Rendering of course from TGR Designs Full statement from Chicago Park District: "As the City's leading greening stewards, the Chicago Park District is committed to preserving and expanding the city's parkland and tree population within our 8800-acre footprint. Our commitment is underscored by the fact that we plant 3000 trees annually and converted nearly 1100 acres of underutilized space to valuable parkland over the past decade. These investments improve our communities and greatly contribute to the lives of children and families throughout our city. As with any capital endeavor that requires the removal of trees, the District is committed to replacing each tree as part of the project scope. The Jackson Park/ South Shore document released is a draft proposal and any references related to reducing the tree count has not been considered or approved by the Park District, and therefore should not be considered a finalized plan.”   It's the last day to let us know what you think of our daily newsletter, and enter to win a $100 Visa gift card!

This week's guest has been behind the scenes in Chicago politics for years, but just out of the frame. He's crossed paths with Rod Blagojevich and Jesse Jackson Jr., worked on the Clinton/Gore campaign in the same political organization as a young Don Harmon and Phil Rock. But for the bulk of his career, he's worked for the Obamas, starting as a paralegal to Michelle Robinson at the law firm of Sidley Austin - not long before she and a hotshot Harvard grad named Barack Obama got married. About 20 years after first meeting the Obamas, Michael Strautmanis is now very much in the frame as executive vice president of civic engagement at the Obama Foundation. He discusses not only the progress on the Obama Presidential Center's construction in Jackson Park and the foundation's fundraising efforts, but also concerns around housing affordability nearby, what it's like as a guy who grew up mostly on the North Side to be handling a project with a big South Side impact, and how the foundation might play a role in addressing gun violence. Strautmanis also talks about what it takes to be a good “fixer” – a political problem solver – and the biggest political mess he ever had to clean up. Remember that beer summit back in 2009?

No more “plain vanilla” supplier diversity programs

No more “plain vanilla” supplier diversity programs Jackie Gomez was recently appointed executive director of HACIA, the Hispanic American Construction Industry Association, and served as the director of supplier and workforce diversity for the Obama Foundation, where she was charged with, among other things, ensuring the foundation achieves transformative diversity and inclusion initiatives during the construction of the Obama Presidential Center. Gomez has been involved with supplier diversity initiatives for over 15 years and shared her thoughts with Negocios Now on the state of supplier diversity efforts in Illinois. More than a program Gomez said companies should be held accountable for doing more than simply creating a supplier diversity program. Having a program does not necessarily mean a company is intentional about seeking out diverse suppliers and it does not mean it has equitable and inclusive procurement practices that lead to supplier diversity, she said. Those things take extra work and attention, and often advocacy. When Gomez first started working in this field, supplier diversity programs were simply known as affirmative action. “When I started in this space over 15 years ago, I look back and realize we still have a long way to go,” she said. “We are still fighting for many of the same things we were back then.” When a business creates a supplier diversity program, it signals an intention to work with a broader pool of companies. It takes action, however, to achieve that. Gomez encourages people to ask what is actually being done to accomplish supplier diversity goals – things like achieving parity in contract language or payment terms with diverse suppliers and removing barriers for small businesses to compete. “We as stakeholders need to ask buying organizations for more details,” Gomez said, “such as does your company have minority business goals on all of its projects, do you report out on your achievements, who do you partner with to increase the diversity of your vendor pool? We have to ask the hard questions.” Legislative victory HACIA's mission is to create a more equitable and inclusive environment for Latino businesses in the construction field. For over 40 years, the organization has been an advocate for its Latino business members, and that has long meant fighting for more inclusive state policies. HACIA recently shepherded two pieces of legislation into law through collaborations with elected officials. One, House Bill 453, requires local governments to be more transparent and inclusive about their procurement policies. Every government entity that levies more than $5 million in taxes, whether it be a school district, park district, county or municipality, now has to collect and report diversity data on their vendors and subcontractors. The other, House Bill 132, removes a layer of bureaucracy for small businesses, allowing them to skip a lengthy minority business certification application. Gomez said those applications have historically taken time small businesses don't have to fill out as well as months to process. Looking ahead Gomez has big hopes for the role of Latino businesses in projects throughout the state. While being hired as subcontractors is an exciting accomplishment, Gomez hopes more Latino companies will get selected as prime contractors, turning those contracts into opportunities to hire from within the community, among Latino youth, and also opportunities to subcontract with other diverse businesses. The community of suppliers can't make this change happen alone, however. “We need the public and private sector to be more intentional in creating audacious, inclusive and equitable procurement and supplier diversity policies,” Gomez said, adding that people at all levels need to constantly ask how to make those policies even better. “Let's not settle for a cookie cutter, plain vanilla supplier diversity program – we're past that now.”

Here is my conversation with NYU law professor Richard Epstein. In this conversation, Richard talks about his involvement with a legal action aimed at stopping construction on the currently planned site of the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago. We discuss the legal issues. We also talk about critical race theory—its origins in the legal academy of the 1970s and 80s, its foundational ideas, its impact on American education, and whether it should be banned by law. We conclude with Richard, who urged Trump to resign in January 2017(!), decrying what he sees as a lack of "comity" on the part of the Biden administration.I hope you enjoy the conversation!

Billie Tsien on Imbuing Buildings With Feeling

Time Sensitive Podcast

Growing up in the 1950s in the only Chinese family in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, Billie Tsien always felt like an outsider. She would seclude herself in the shower of her family’s home’s master bathroom, behind closed doors, escaping into books for hours before her parents, who had originally moved to America from Shanghai to study at Cornell, would find her. Through this Tsien developed a deep understanding of the value of a rich interior life—a concept she has gone on to apply to her work at the New York–based architectural practice Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects Partners (TWBTA), which she co-founded with her husband, Tod Williams, in 1986. The ethereal craft inherent in TWBTA’s structures, which include parks, libraries, museums, and other people-focused places, emanates from Billie and Tod’s belief that architecture is an act of service, and an opportunity to create quiet moments where visitors can indulge in the simple yet powerful emotions that can be stirred when encountering beauty. When Tsien, now 72, reflects on her firm’s philosophy—which entails making buildings that transcend solutions, that respect the earth, and that are measured by the lives lived within them—it’s clear that she profoundly, even poetically, shapes each project’s awe-inspiring energy. Tsien’s deliberate, unhurried methodology is apparent in everything she does. She advocates for listening and community engagement—a central part of her firm’s high-profile, often controversial public works, such as Philadelphia’s Barnes Foundation (2012), Dartmouth College’s Hood Museum of Art (2019), and Chicago’s Obama Presidential Center, which is slated to break ground this fall. Tsien and her staff spend time with the craftspeople who create many of their materials—including Dutch textile artist Claudy Jongstra, whose vibrant felt paintings grace the walls of New York’s David Rubenstein Atrium (2009), and Danish brick-makers whose product features on the facade of dormitories at Pennsylvania’s Haverford College (2012)—and select them according to the emotional responses they elicit. She gives the same focused attention to the holistic experience of a building as she does the handrails that will go inside it. When it comes to the planet, Tsien thinks buildings should embrace measurable ways to minimize their environmental footprints as well as immeasurable ones, such as the meandering pathways of the LeFrak Center (2013), in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, that invite people to appreciate the natural wonders around them.On this episode, Tsien details the origins of and rationale behind her approach to the built environment, talking with Spencer about designing structures as containers for life, why history doesn’t unfold in a straight line, and architecture as both an honor and a responsibility.
