protect the health and safety of bart workers and bart riders bart's board voted to require vaccines, but let the details to the general manager and administration to work out with each of the transit districts many unions employ. will have until december 13th to get fully vaccinated unless they have a narrowly defined religious or health exemption in public comments that the board meeting at least one member of the bart police officers association voiced his objections to a covid vaccine mandate. this is a medical decision for individuals to make and shouldn't be a condition for continued employment or any other healthcare. question we're encouraged to get a second opinion. even the biden administration's proposal that's working through ocean now has a testing option. so does the state worker proposal has a testing option? i think that was a very good that would have been the next step the boards vote on thursdays a policy decision that now has to be worked out with parts of various unions. what's still unclear is what
happens to those employees who don't have an exemption but still refused to get vaccinated. so the the management an t r will beorwhat would be the res for those who aren't vaccinated. so that hasn't been determined yet. besides bart muni is the only other major transit agency in the bay area to make employee vaccines. mandatory. laurie anthony abc 7 news. the cdc is out today with its guidance on how best be safe during the upcoming holidays first and foremost get vaccinated. the cdc says vaccines will protect those not yet eligible to get a shot. especially young children. we're welping masks over your nose and mouth if you're in public indoor settings if you're not fully vaccinated also avoid crowded poorly ventilated spaces and stay home if you're not feeling well. bay area health officials are offering their own guidelines and recommendations for halloween this year abc

i feel like it's time to start moving towards as much normalcy as we possibly can because i'm sure with flu season around the corner things might change. so we just have to move forward baby steps we've been taking very big steps like the smallest baby around steps. anyway, a texas school district is apologizing after an official told teachers if they have a book on the holocaust they needed to include opposing. perspectives this came up during a training session as officials went over with teachers how to handle a new state law that requires them to provide multiple perspectives when discussing controversial issues teachers that expressed frustration and confusion over these new guidelines when the school official brought up the holocaust a teacher responded quote. how do you oppose the holocaust? i mean, there are some people who think it was a hoax clearly owvereal good. he no idea
what is happening state anymore. i boionssue. they basically let anybody get a gun. no permitting. no, i mean and now you have this sort of thing going on in the schools. yeah. i i would just like to point. i mean at least the superintendent has apologized, you know, the school board member did say that i should never get to that point and and you know, i watched the control were secretly recorded or released audio of that. it was one person one administrator saying something that was clearly either just not thought out did really realize what she was saying or just plain stupid and ignorant. i mean, it's just a ridiculous perspective to take without common sense, but it is just one person there and it's as christian points out at least they sort of apologize quickly, you know, just hurtful institute. yeah, because there's no opposing view unless you want to get into the holocaust denier. yeah, that's another like come on. those people are right. it's in foil hats out if i go
there but this is kind of part of a broader trend, you know, so that part we got to keep an eye on. okay, what topics are taboo to you according to a new survey? wait is the most controversial topic but debt is right up there too bank rate found that 59% gen z respondents in 62% of millennials believe. it's okay to talk about that but the older you get the less people want to discuss their money problems only 51% of gen xers 47% of boomers and 41% of the silent generation said they were willing to talk about the subject. so what topics are off limits to you boy around here. i feel like it's i mean not maybe not here but across the country, it feels like it's like, you know mandates. what do you think sandhya? die way, i mean does that have i don't know. what do you think larry? well, that was a quick response. i thought are you were you volunteering the number or i thought that was a question that i was supposed to answer. i'm asking you what's taboo as
far as what's taboo for me is dan's frequent vacation? oh, that's a subject that affects me directly. so that's that's a taboo topic around here, but i don't know people. get very secretive about money issues and that's understandable. i mean i've had family members kind of, you know back away from the table when you start that conversation because i don't know if they're really loaded or if they're broke and it's true. the older folks tend to be my mother's generation parents generation even more weird about discussing money for me. i don't really have any i was going to joke and say the topic talking about what topic is off limits is my off limits topic i would say in this day and age politics with people just you know, don't give it. don't mix it up too much if people start to get into a food fight and half people get you get emotional about it. it's age. we're okay with that, right? yes. okay. just want to know ask me
anything. when's your next vacation? i just got some approved today as a matter of factorial. we getting the memo. all right. next time you go back to hawaii. let me know. people across the country are shaking their heads over a wisconsin meat markets halloween inspired bratwurst. take a look at the spooked over fest brought that is now on sale. a jennifer street market in madison. it looks like your standard problem. look closely right there. those orange chunks dotting the sausage. those are pieces of candy corn. yes candy corn the halloween treat either love or hate or love to hate those who have tried the brats say, they're not scary at all. they're a combination of sweet and salty others say sausages. percent brats at their worst. let's taken pretty strong stand on the broad, but looks like a mistake like the two things made in the same factory got mixed up the whole thing. seems like a mistake, but you know, some people really love
candy corn. i i'm not among them. but anybody here on this, you know, at this time of year. sure. i'll have some kids just stays in your teeth forever. i i mean, i'm not crazy about it, but i'll leave it this time sandy. it's candy corn. no two sugary. i don't like candy corn. my sister loves candy corn, but i'm a vegetarian so i would never try those. mm-hmm. i mean, what do you think kristen? i think it looks diseased and funny taste wise. i imagine it's not that big of a deal because i kind of like it when there's a little honey on my hand or maybe get a little maple syrup on my bacon. and so this is kind of like combining that right sweet and salty. yeah that sweet and salty. although it's interesting when you put it on the grill or heat it up. what does the candy corn just melt in there and must? yeah. no and it texture questionable. but yeah something that will not but yeah something that will not pass there for ♪ ♪ ♪ but yeah something that will not pass there for
