This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 2 Lindsay Felten finally felt like she was close to a breakthrough. Multiple times over two years, the mental health clinician tried to find and get a homeless person known as Q into shelter and voluntary services. Community members reported Q was at times incoherent, but when Felten found her, Q declined offers from Felten and her colleagues on the city’s Street Crisis Response Team , said she was fine and walked away. Until, one day, Q engaged with Felten, chatting about the weather — the most receptive Felten had ever seen Q. But the clinician never got the chance to follow up. Later that week, Q was at the center of a media maelstrom after North Beach gallery owner Collier Gwin hosed the homeless person down , triggering the owner’s arrest and exposing the challenges of how to help people who appear mentally unwell on the streets. Felten understood the community’s frustration … [Read more...] about Mayor Breed is spending millions on S.F. street crisis teams. New data shows how they’re working

MINNEAPOLIS — Pot roast was one of the first dishes the chef Gavin Kaysen learned to cook, if you can call it cooking. The recipe he used as a teenager growing up in Bloomington, Minn., a Twin Cities suburb, required no culinary training. “I’d just Crock-Pot it,” Mr. Kaysen said. He then mimicked the act of pouring packaged beef stock into a slow cooker and grinned. Mr. Kaysen had just slid a more technically advanced pot roast into the oven in the open kitchen at Spoon and Stable , the restaurant he opened here in late 2014 to much anticipation. “I can’t wait for that gravy,” he said. Northeasterners cook Yankee pot roast . Jewish brisket and most beef daube in New Orleans are pot roast by other names. But to many who grew up in America’s heartland, pot roast tastes and smells of home. Comprising little more than a large cut of beef (chuck roast is common), onions, root vegetables and braising liquid, pot roast has none of the meddling influence of haute cuisine. … [Read more...] about Coming Home to Pot Roast
Josephy Amosi Kamanga, who lives in Malawi, couldn’t afford to pay the examination fee for his eldest child, so she dropped out of school two years ago. She later got pregnant and is living at home. The fee that changed his daughter’s life? Just $4.98. That story comes from GiveDirectly Inc., an American charity that offers a simple proposition: Give poor people cash, with no strings attached, and good things will tend to happen. It certainly did to Kamanga and his family. GiveDirectly gave him $51.75 a month for a year. That enabled him to reopen a shop that sells soap, drinks, body lotion, sugar, eggs and cooking oil, and to buy a secondhand phone to operate the business. With the profits from the grocery he covered school expenses for three other children. He told a GiveDirectly interviewer that the news he’d been selected to receive the money “brought joy in my heart.” Traditional aid, however well intentioned, can be insensitive to the needs of the poor. Massive donations of … [Read more...] about Do Handouts Work?

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is not buying China’s latest excuse for the alleged spy balloon hovering over the northern portion of the U.S., suggesting that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is simply lying and using it to spy on the nation. The U.S. military confirmed this week it was tracking what it believes is a Chinese spy balloon hovering over the northern portion of the country. Pentagon Press Secretary Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder described it as a “high-altitude surveillance balloon” which he claimed does not pose a threat to the U.S. However, he said the U.S. could continue to monitor it. A high-altitude balloon floats over Billings, Montana, on Wednesday, February 1, 2023. (Larry Mayer/The Billings Gazette via AP) The Biden administration’s action — or lack thereof — has prompted outrage from several U.S. lawmakers, some of whom have called to shoot down the balloon completely. “ Shoot. It. Down. The Chinese spy balloon is clear provocation. In Montana we do … [Read more...] about Marsha Blackburn Dismisses China’s ‘Weather’ Balloon Excuse: ‘It Is All Called SPYING’
Checking in! With 12 bedrooms, 10 with en suite bathrooms, the historic Farris Hotel , aka Hotel Dallas, could be just about anything. The building, just off Main Street in Eagle Lake, TX , has come on the market with a list price of $1,650,000. “It was built in 1912 and, throughout its life, it has been a hotel at least twice and then a restaurant. And the individual who owns it now is using it as a single-family residence,” says Tim Grimes of Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty, who is co-listing the property with Brian Spack . “There are so many possibilities somebody could do with this. If somebody has an imagination and is creative, it could be something really special,” Grimes adds.

At one point, Bill and Helyn Farris restored and operated the hotel for 20 years. Bill died in 2012, and records show the … [Read more...] about $1.6M Texas Hotel Is Looking for a Buyer To Check In
