The Best of Out In The Bay: Life Before The Lifeboat

Mar 12, 2015

  

AIDS led the world to many new discoveries in medicine. But San Francisco's General Hospital pioneered a new model of patient care. In the film, "Life Before The Lifeboat,"  Dr. Paul Volberding interviews nurses, doctors, medical professionals, and community leaders from that time. Marilyn's audio version of the film is a compelling, dramatic, intense listening experience. A special rebroadcast Thursday, March 12th, 2015, at 7pm.

How does citizen oversight of police departments work?  On the next Your Call, we’ll continue our series on police, community, race, and justice by discussing different models in Northern California. Where is citizen oversight working? San Diego, Oakland, Riverside, Long Beach, Sausalito, Novato, and Berkeley have review boards, but few people know these boards even exist. What power do citizen oversight boards have to ensure police accountability? How should these boards work? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Alyssa Arian has worked in San Francisco restaurants for a decade and, like most servers, she got into it for the tips.

“Some nights you leave with $80 or $90,” she says. “$100 is kind of the average mark for what you want as a server, sort of anywhere in this city I think as a minimum.”

Since February, though, Arian hasn’t earned any tips. She’s working at Sous Beurre Kitchen, a new French spot in the Mission where tipping’s not allowed.
