Hey it’s Brent Carey. My day starts with a great workout, wild Muni bus ride to work, then it’s time to open the mic on KOIT 3-7pm. I love living in the city, hope to run into you soon at a Bay Area event!
Giants fans everywhere celebrated the team's big Game 7 win over Kansas City. Virgin America Flight VX717 was traveling from Dallas to San Francisco when Pablo Sandoval caught the final out. They were following closely and began celebrating at 35,000 feet!
Before the playoffs began, Hunter Pence gave an inspirational speech to the fans at AT&T Park. He talked about vision and being a World Series Champion. Now they are one game away. Is tonight the night? Giants fans everywhere are hoping YES YES YES!
What an exciting week in the Bay Area. The World Series begins today and my social media feeds have been full of posts about the Giants and Royals. I saw this one on Instagram and thought it was especially good. Don't Stop Believing!
Rob Greenfield is on a mission. He's dumpster diving his way across the country to raise awareness about the billions of dollars worth of food wasted each year in the US. Conducting "food fiascos", Rob takes the edible food he finds in dumpsters and displays it to show just how food is wasted. He's been featured in news stories across the country including the LA Times.
This is all food from grocery store dumpsters in #Detroit, tell your grocery store to #DonateNotDump ... #FoodWasteFiasco #FoodWaste
-We throw away 165 billion dollars worth of food per year in America. That’s more than the budgets for America’s national parks, public libraries, federal prisons, veteran’s health care, the FBI, and the FDA combined.
-About 50 million of our 317 million Americans are food insecure yet we produce enough food to feed over 500 million Americans.
-To create just the amount of food that ends up in the landfills we waste enough water to meet the domestic water needs of every American citizen.
Rob is in the Bay Area this weekend for "Feeding the 5000" in Oakland. It's happening this Saturday October 18th from 12-5pm at Frank Ogawa Plaza.
Rob will be my guest on "Today's World" Sunday 26th 7:00am on KOIT.
Yesterday I mentioned on Facebook that I had a friend visiting this weekend who had never been to San Francisco. I asked for suggestions of what we absolutely must do. There's so much to see and do in the City I know we can't do it all in one weekend. The answers were great! I thought I'd share the post with the responses here.
Teddy Bear is not your average porcupine. He has his own Facebook page and has developed an internet following because he talks! You have to hear the sounds he makes, especially as he chows down on these mini-pumpkins. See more of Teddy's videos on his YouTube page
