Concert Halls, Classical Music Silenced by Pandemic

Sue Gilmore, Bay City News Foundation, and Planet
Thursday March 19, 2020 - 10:30:00 AM

They may call it the week the music died.

All throughout the Bay Area, presenters of classical music are reeling from the impact of the coronavirus. Postponements and cancellations of events that began with a trickle at the beginning of March have cascaded into a flood that has silenced our concert halls.

In Berkeley, performances of the Philharmonic Baroque Orchestra and the Berkeley Symphony have been cancelled.

Berkeley Chamber Opera has suspended its production of Poulenc's Dialogue of the Carmelites, originally scheduled for early April. It hopes to resume rehearsals in August in hopes of mid-August performance dates. -more-

Berkeley and the 1918 Flu (First Installment)

Wednesday March 18, 2020 - 09:19:00 PM


When the news arrived this March 16 with virtually no advance notice that Berkeleyeans were ordered to “shelter in place” at home for three weeks, starting the next day, I remembered an interesting little fact from history. In 1945 there was a newspaper deliveryman’s strike in New York City and papers, although printed, didn’t reach much of the general public. New York’s third term Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia had a regular weekly radio show. In July he decided he would read the comics in the papers over his radio show so New York children could keep up with their favorite characters. He was also making a political statement (because, although generally pro-union, he opposed the strike).

Now I’m no mayor, thank goodness and I’m not making a political statement, but recalling that incident gave me the idea to write serially about the 1918 flu epidemic and how it was experienced in Berkeley, for all of you sequestered at home these days waiting out the 2020 epidemic.

Many Daily Planet readers may know that I already write a weekly column summarizing Berkeley history a century ago, published each Friday in the pages of the Berkeley Voice.

I have often said, based on extensive reading and research in Berkeley history for that column and other projects, that most things that happen here today have happened in Berkeley before. This is notwithstanding the near-constant statements by proud or prideful civic leaders or journalists today that something they’ve done or proposed or covered is a “first” for Berkeley (it’s usually not, but the actual first time something similar happened has typically been forgotten).

So has Berkeley experienced an influenza emergency before? Yes, as all the world did, in 1918 / 19 when the “Spanish Influenza” pandemic circled the globe and, as fall 1918 began, struck our city. -more-

Has Berkeley ever been depopulated by a virulent plague?

Yes. At least twice, in fact! In fiction and novels, that is.

Both stories provide a glimpse of fictional worlds which have now come perhaps a little too close to our own current reality. Empty streets, a depopulated Berkeley campus, infectious disease that can strike instantly at anyone. -more-

Why We Wash Our Hands

Margot Smith, Dr.P.H.
Wednesday March 18, 2020 - 11:37:00 AM

Hand washing is one of the most important actions we can take to prevent infection, especially with our new viruses—CoV19, MERS, and SARS

The importance of hand washing was driven home recently when I spent time with a relative in the ICU, the Intensive Care Unit at my local hospital. In the ten days I kept vigil until his recovery, the hospital staff kept his room sterile. Every time the room was entered a new pair of gloves was put on. Blood pressure and other monitors were wiped down when entering and leaving the room. The floor and bed rails were cleaned often. For the short time he was considered contagious, we all put on paper aprons when entering, discarding when leaving. There were four trash receptacles—one for needles and sharps, one for soiled linen, one for bio-contaminated equipment like tubes and wipes, and one for plain refuse. Staff efforts at keeping the room sterile were impressive.

Poor Dr. Semmelweis would have been very pleased. In 1847 he tried to convince doctors in his Viennese maternity ward to simply wash their hands. He was convinced doctors were inadvertently carrying infection into the ward where mothers were dying of puerperal fever. It is thought that Jane Seymour, the third wife of King Henry VIII was possibly the most famous victim of puerperal fever. In 1537, she died two weeks after giving birth to Henry's only surviving son, the future Edward VI of England. Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (who wrote Frankenstein), also died of this disease shortly after giving birth. -more-

How to Help

Councilmember Kate Harrison
Wednesday March 18, 2020 - 10:58:00 AM

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'” - Mr. Rogers
Dear neighbors,
I am pleased to announce that every emergency COVID-19 item on the Council agenda passed last night. No residential or commercial tenants can be evicted for COVID-related loss of income, extra sanitation services for the homeless are being deployed, and we set up a relief fund for our small businesses and arts organizations who need so much help. We heard a thorough and inspirational presentation on the work of the City’s Emergency Operations Center. Your Mayor, Council, and city staff are working diligently to protect Berkeleyans of all stripes during this crisis.
Many neighbors have reached out to ask how they can help too. If you are in a low-risk population and have time to give, please go to the Berkeley Mutual Aid Network. A group of Berkeleyans decided to match people who need assistance with those who can help. If you are in a high-risk population and need help getting groceries, walking your dog, or other errands, please fill out this form HERE. If you are of a low-risk population and want to help your neighbors get groceries, walk their dogs, or perform other tasks, please fill out this form HERE.
If you are unable to give time, there are many organizations that could use your financial support. The East Bay Community Foundation has established the COVID-19: A Just Community Response Fund, which will provide one-time general operating grants to organizations that provide critical services around economic security to the most vulnerable populations in the East Bay. These organizations are focused on providing immediate, mid-term, and long-term support related to:
  • Loss of employment and decreased hourly work, resulting in reduced income
  • Closures of schools and childcare centers (resulting in lost earnings as parents must take time off to care for children)
  • Increased health care costs for testing and treatment, and loss of income as individuals are forced to take time off for self-care and to care for family members
  • Food insecurity resulting from lower individual and family income
  • Reduced access to a range of social services and programs, in response to social distancing requirements.
Please consider making a donation HERE and it will go towards protecting the low-income individuals who are the hardest hit by this crisis. -more-

SEVEN BAY AREA JURISDICTIONS ORDER RESIDENTS TO STAY HOME COVID-19 spread reduces activity to only most essential needs

Berkeley, California (Monday, March 16, 2020) - Seven health officers within six Bay Area counties are taking a bold, unified step to slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and preserve critical health care capacity across the region. On March 16, the Public health officers of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara counties announced, with the City of Berkeley, a legal order directing their respective residents to shelter at home for three weeks beginning March 17.

The guidance comes after substantial input from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and best practices from other health officials around the world. -more-

Kaiser Opens Drive-Up Testing Trial

Bay City News Service
Monday March 16, 2020 - 03:31:00 PM

With health professionals expecting the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) to accelerate, Kaiser Permanente is setting up several drive-up testing sites for its members at East Bay locations.

The drive-up testing sites are only for Kaiser members, and only those who meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria for testing and have a doctor's order to be tested, Kaiser officials said Sunday. Kaiser spokeswoman Kerri Leedy would not say where these drive-up stations are operating, because they are not open to the public. This is a pilot program currently being tested at Kaiser's Northern California medical centers. -more-

Staying Home to Stay Alive

Becky O'Malley
Sunday March 15, 2020 - 12:13:00 PM

So here we are, knee deep in a catastrophe different in kind from anything we have ever experienced, and the President of the United States of America is a blithering idiot. His media availabilities last week were a good opportunity to see exactly what that term means.

First: idiot. It is clear that he doesn’t know the simplest thing about medical science, for example that a vaccination must be administered before you get sick to do any good. He’s established himself as the leader of a flock of sheep eager to jump over a cliff, as exemplified by one of his fans I heard on a radio call-in program: “America is the best in medicine, and there will be an anecdote soon which will cure everyone.”

Yes indeed, Trump’s foolish followers believe in “anecdotes”, not antidotes. Obviously, they also haven’t heard that “data” is not the plural of “anecdotes”.

And blithering: his recent—I hesitate to call them this—press conferences were ideal opportunities to observe an idiot blithering, defined by Merriam Webster as “talking foolishly”. Time and again his mind wandered into uncharted waters, often to contradict something sensible one of his scientific advisers had just said.

What is blindingly clear is that we can’t rely on the people in power to do what needs to be done to get us through this. Donald Trump and his Republican Party henchmen and henchwomen have almost succeeded in Grover Norquist’s 2001 expressed goal: “I don't want to abolish government. I simply want to reduce it to the size where I can drag it into the bathroom and drown it in the bathtub.”

The federal government is almost drowned for sure. Now the rest of us will have to work together to do what needs to be done to bail us out. -more-

African Americans: The Struggle for Dignity and Survival

Sunday March 15, 2020 - 02:28:00 PM

The civil rights movement posed a very difficult challenge to the establishment, which forced it to make major and unprecedented concessions to African Americans. Indeed, “forced” is certainly the appropriate characterization because the resistance particularly among white southerners was strong and even violent. -more-

People’s Park is Berkeley’s most famous landmark and provides irreplaceable open space

Harvey Smith, People’s Park Historic District Advocacy Group
Friday March 13, 2020 - 03:45:00 PM

Berkeley is one of the most densely populated cities in California and open space is needed, particularly in the extremely crowded south campus area.

Historians, preservationists, students, neighbors and concerned citizens have come together to form the People’s Park Historic District Advocacy Group to document and preserve the open space of People’s Park and the historic resources encircling it.

Although there is no denying that truly affordable housing is needed, People’s Park is Berkeley’s most famous landmark and is valuable, irreplaceable public open space for the densely populated south campus area. We oppose construction on People’s Park. Our group, which formed in the summer of 2019, is moved to action by the following issues: -more-

Pitching In

Thomas Lord
Friday March 13, 2020 - 03:42:00 PM

Based on empirically based projections of how the virus will spread, on the experience of other countries and cities, and on what I think I know about the structure of our society, I have some suggestions.

We are entering a period when our collective well-being depends on volunteerism and pitching in.

Assume that there is a good chance public schools will be shut down, but may need help serving students who are unhoused and/or lack alternative child care.

Prepare for the possibility that most businesses will be closed temporarily, but please do not competitively hoard and please try to avoid shopping in big weekend and evening crowds. If you are a landlord, be prepared to take some losses and don't initiate evictions.

If you have IT skills of the right kind, please find ways to organize and help the City keep communications and public process open even if public meetings must be more or less ended. Are you competent to help with streaming? Teleconferencing? Rapid turn-around on web sites? Forums, mailing lists, and so forth? The City IT dept. lacks the capacity to step up as much as is needed here.

As you prepare your own households, keep in mind that many will not. If you are able, prepare to help others.

Be aware that the Bay Area is one of the ground zeroes. Be aware that we are unlikely to “much” limit the number of people who become infected but we can slow it down.

We *must* work to slow the spread down because otherwise our health care system will likely be overwhelmed sooner rather than later. That will mean that people who go to the ER with otherwise survivable conditions (virus or otherwise) will be allowed to die in a triage process.

Wash your hands etc. :-) -more-

Vote NO in the Pacifica Bylaws Election

Dr. James McFadden, KPFA LSB
Sunday March 15, 2020 - 02:33:00 PM

Let me begin by saying that I am new to the Pacifica Radio Network struggles. I decided to get involved because I could see NPR (National Propaganda Radio) shifting to the Right with its corporate sponsors and I did not want Pacifica or KPFA to follow suit. I was elected to the KPFA Local Station Board (LSB) in early 2019. Since then I have witness up-close the disasters that the advocates for these bylaws have inflicted on Pacifica using Shock Doctrine tactics. These advocates seem to have been struggling for control of the Pacifica Network for decades and their actions over the last year appear to be a last ditch attempt to either wrench control of Pacifica for themselves, or take Pacifica down. Don’t let the advocates of bylaw-change use fear to sway you. They use narratives to pit one station against another – or to pit management and privileged staff members against other staff. These are divide and conquer tactics that elites have always used to control us. Please remember that Pacifica has always been different – and experiment in community radio and democracy. -more-

Is COVID-19 Nature's Revenge?

Gar Smith
Sunday March 15, 2020 - 10:28:00 PM

"Can't you hear what Mother Nature is screaming at you?" — Al Gore

In Joaquin Miller Park, in the hills above Oakland, California, the remains of an ancient tree are on display. Taller than a standing human, the rings of the remnant stump reveal a long and challenged history. At one point, hundreds of years ago—long before the arrival of European settlers—a bolt of lightning struck the tree, leaving a mark that still remains.

Part of the tree was severed by the impact and resulting fire, leaving the towering tree unbalanced and in danger of toppling. What happened over the next several decades gives an astonishing look into nature's remarkable—and underestimated—survival responses.

Leaning to the east and threatened by collapse, the tree did something that trees are not widely known to do: It grew a leg. On the side of the tree that had begun to tilt toward the ground, a new woody growth slowly emerged from the trunk, creating what an architect might describe as a "flying buttress"—the kind of exterior support used to secure the walls of tall, stone churches.

That tree in Oakland has something in common with a mutant lamb in Ukraine. -more-

Press Release: American Federation of Musicians President Urges Relief for Gig Economy Workers

Ray Hair, AFM International President
Sunday March 15, 2020 - 08:09:00 PM

As events related to the fast-moving coronavirus pandemic evolve, emergency declarations in many locations have banned all but small-sized public gatherings in an effort to protect families, save lives and prevent the spread of the disease. These actions have led to the shuttering of large, medium and small venues, sporting facilities, and the preemption of live media production involving studio audiences. This has prompted the widespread cancellation of concerts, shows, theatrical productions, festivals, and musical performances of every kind—all of which have inflicted disastrous economic effects upon performers who often live gig to gig and who bring joy to the world wherever groups are gathered. -more-

Press Release: National Nurses United statement on today’s Trump administration press conferenc

Sunday March 15, 2020 - 08:00:00 PM

The following statement by National Nurses United Executive Director Bonnie Castillo, RN and Presidents Jean Ross, RN, Zenei Cortez, RN and Deborah Burger, RN is in response to the Trump administration’s COVID-19 press conference:

“At a press conference today, President Trump declared a national emergency and announced that Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar will now have broad new powers to “immediately waive revisions of applicable laws and regulations to give doctors, all hospitals and healthcare providers, maximum flexibility to respond to the virus and care for patients.” Trump also announced a new partnership between the government and corporations, including commercial labs Roche and Thermo Fisher to make the COVID-19 test; Google to market the test; and Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and Target to administer the test to patients.

While launching this windfall for corporations, what the Trump administration did not mention was that the best way for health care workers to respond to COVID-19 is to ensure that they have the protections they need—which they currently do not.

This week, nurses were outraged that the federal Centers for Disease Control weakened its guidance on health care worker protections. These changes include, among other things, rolling back personal protective equipment (PPE) standards from N-95 respirators to allow simple surgical masks; not requiring suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients to be placed in negative pressure isolation rooms at all times; and weakening protections for health care workers collecting diagnostic respiratory specimens. These are moves that National Nurses United nurses say will gravely endanger nurses, health care workers, patients, and our communities. -more-


THE PUBLIC EYE: Joe Biden: Pro and Con

Bob Burnett
Friday March 13, 2020 - 03:31:00 PM

Wow! Over a four day span, stretching from the South Carolina Democratic Primary to the conclusion of "Super Tuesday," Joe Biden vaulted from the position of a marginal Democratic presidential candidate to the frontrunner. The 538 website now predicts that Biden has a 93 percent chance of winning the Democratic nomination. Here's my assessment of Biden's pros and cons.

The latest Real Clear Politics summary of national polls shows Biden beating Trump by an average of 6.3 percent. Nonetheless, we remember all too well that Clinton led Trump throughout a long and agonizing campaign and then lost the election, courtesy of the electoral college. Uncle Joe can beat Trump but it's far from certain. -more-

ON MENTAL ILLNESS: Psychiatric Medication is not a 'Sanity Pill'

Jack Bragen
Friday March 13, 2020 - 03:56:00 PM

It is intrinsic in human nature that people will have incorrect beliefs. People will always have incorrect beliefs. A million years from now, if humans survive long enough to evolve into something better, those descendants will have incorrect beliefs. The human mind, and at a likely guess, the mind of any creature, terrestrial or otherwise, has a representation of truth, but not truth itself. This is analogous to looking at a map versus navigating the terrain that the map represents. -more-
