8:50 pm
story building will help keep residents safe and sound. so bill tell me about the soft story building program what is it >> it's a program the mayor signed into law a year and a half ago the whole idea was to help homeowners strengthen buildings so they wouldn't collapse. >> does the soft story program apply to all buildings. >> it only applies to buildings built in a timeframe of 1978 and earlier it's aimed at wood framed building 3 or more stories and 5 are more units but the openings at the garage level and the street level are not supported in many buildings without the support in a major earthquake the professionals
8:51 pm
sent them to flatten and many are under rent control so everybody's advantage to do the work and make sure they're protecting their investments and tenants. >> nos have gone out to have thousand owners but fewer one one third have respondent and thousand might miss an important deadline in december let's talk worse case scenario. >> so first soft story walls the building will collapse and be a total loss. >> can you talk about the sfrelg in the retrofit. >> you want to think of this building like a rubber abandon in the upper 3 floors are a rid i do box and the earthquake the
8:52 pm
garage tends to really over the first floor is a very tough but flexible e flexible rubber abandon you would not drive the forces to the upper force so it goes into the plywood or steel frame. >> so here we are inside a soft story building can we talk about the kinds of repairs property owners might expect and it's a simple process we try to keep it that way so what's involved whether you install plywood to make a wall and cover it with the gossiping so many stellar it adds underneath e flexibility so during the earthquake you'll get movement but not collapse it gets strengthened more when we go to the doorway to the steel frame to support the upper
8:53 pm
floor. >> so potentially the wood and steel that sound like a straightforward process takes our odds of collapse from one in 4 to one in thirty. >> that's exactly right we're hoping people will move quickly and make this happen. >> great let's take a look at. >> so let's talk extremely frame talk about that. >> we have a extremely frame there are two of those and go up to the lower floor and a beam that goes 0 across that forms this it's a stiffer and stronger so during the quarter the upper floor won't clarion and according the engineers and contractors it could be done in two weeks time easy. >> if you're a property owner with questions about the soft story retrofit program signs up
8:54 pm
to this on august 11th from 3 to 5 at the main public library and the dbi staff will be there the deadline for applications t is september 15th. for more information (music) >> herb theatre,open rehearsal.
8:55 pm
listen to the rehearsal. i think it is fun for them, they see our work process, our discussions, the decisions we make. it is good for us. we kind of behavior little bit when we have people in the audience. msk (music) >> we are rehearsing for our most expensive tour; plus two concerts here. we are proud that the growth of the orchestra, and how it is expanded and it is being accepted. my ambition when i came on as music director here -- it was evident we needed absolutely excellent work.
8:56 pm
also evident to me that i thought everyone should know that. this was my purpose. and after we opened, which was a spectacular opening concert about five weeks after that the economy completely crashed. my plan -- and i'm absolutely dogmatic about my plans --were delayed slightly. i would say that in this very difficult timefor the arts and everyone, especially the arts, it's phenomenal how new century has grown where many unfortunate organizations have stopped. during this period we got ourselves on national radio presence; we started touring, releasing cds, a dvd.
8:57 pm
we continue to tour. reputation grows and grows and grows and it has never stopped going forward. msk(music) >> the bay area knows the orchestra. you maybe take things for granted a little bit. that is simply not the case will go on the road. the audiences go crazy. they don't see vitality like this on stage. we are capable of conveying joy when we play. msk(music) >> any performance that we do, that a program, that will be something on the program that you haven't heard before. string orchestra repertoire is pretty small. i used to be boxed into small repertoire.
8:58 pm
i kept constantly looking for new repertoire and commissioning new arrangements. if you look at the first of the program you have very early, young vibrant mendelson; fabulous opener and then you have this fabulous concerto written for us in the orchestra. is our gift. msk(music) >> and then you have strauss, extraordinary piece. the most challenging of all. string orchestra work. 23 solo instrument, no violin section, now viola section; everybody is responsible for their part in this piece.
8:59 pm
the challenge is something that i felt not only that we could do , absolutely could do, but i wanted to show off. i can't tell you how aware i am of the audience. not only what i hear but their vibes, so strong. i have been doing this for a long time. i kind of make them feel what i want them to feel. there is nobody in that audience or anywhere that is not going to know that particular song by the fourth note. and that is our encore on tour. by the way.
9:00 pm
i am proud to play it, we are from san francisco. we are going to play that piece no matter where we are. >> [gavel] good afternoon and welcome to the july 28 meeting of the san francisco ethics commission. i will take attendance. chairperson mr. hur has been excused for personal reasons and calling the other commissioners. renne. >> here. >> commissioner andrews. >> here. >> commissioner keane. >> here. >> before taking public comment on item number 2 i just want to
