shovels in the ground tomorrow. all this means is they've cleared yet another hurdle towards getting this project done today could have made this thing go away. it could have been the end, but they passed so now they get to move on. that's what this means. so how many more steps are there from the hideout from this vote a thumbs up to actual shovels in the ground? yeah, one of the bcdc commissioners joya actually made a really good point. he said that certifying the eir was kind of like getting to first base. getting past this vote is second base getting a vote on the community benefits agreement development agreement from the oakland city council would be third base and then it'll circle all the way back to the bcdc again these same people will vote on a final permit and approval of the project. that would be like getting to home and then you can get out those shovels larry. what's the timeline here because obviously the azer on the clock
4:01 pm

four and we have sandia joining us along with mike. so, you know today is is world social media day. was introduced in 2010 to highlight the influence of social media and its role in worldwide communication today. the united nations is asking people to pledge to pause and verify content before you share it online because sharing this information as we know is very harmful. all right. well, how are we celebrating or should we be celebrating? what are our thoughts on this big day sandia? yeah, you know kristen i think social media has a very powerful ability to get information out. i mean certainly i embraced it when it was first introduced and it has been very helpful in gathering information, but it also can be a place where like we all know false information is put out there and people
4:39 pm
actually believe it so i think that we do have to take a step back and we do have to kind of pause as you just mentioned to make sure that we are double checking our facts and people who are posting are posting accurate information. yeah, i do like on twitter now they say do you want to be the article before you read tweet it right? oh, yeah, right. i think the bigger concern actually is in just blatant disinformation and people that have you know, they're looking for outcomes to create. chaos knowing full. well, it's not like an accident. oh, i got this article and i'm going to retweet it. this is a system-wide attempt to create chaos that the platforms don't do enough to try to suppress you would hope it would enhance i will say our images media and journalists that the people would come to us more often on social media knowing that we have checked in fact checked and double checked and
4:40 pm
three checking for you know, all of our sources and before we posted anything you would hope that becomes a trend. yeah. i'm not sure people are paying attention exactly. just see yeah what they saw on facebook and then go visitor speaking of going berserk. this is just a huge story in the world of sports today mercury news reporter john wilner who covers athletics like nobody else around here a huge scoop today usc and ucla are leaving the pac-12 to join the big ten. yes the conference that's in the middle of the midwest for the most part. it's unclear if this would be in all sports could happen as early as 2024. it has to be approved at the highest level of power at the tools and in the big ten but all signs point to this happening and i simply do not know how the pac-12 continues to exist. i don't know. i mean where we're really headed is to the formation of two gigantic mega conferences with all the biggest of the best
4:41 pm
teams from the sec and the big ten and so you can understand why usc would want to be a part of this. i'm not sure what it does or where it leaves stanford and cal all of this is driven by television money because big 10 tv contract is like twice the size of the pac-12 right contract and so everybody's chasing dollars and i mean any notion of amateur athletics is completely out the window at this point. this is all about professional stuff and kristen you went to call i'm sure you went to a bunch of games and things like all of a sudden what you see la is in the big tent like what does that road trip gonna look like ever tried to get to madison wisconsin from the west coast? what does that mean? how wouldn't play usc and la and our basketball games are football games and our regular schedule not in the regular schedule. who knows we don't even know what it means you forward to those rivalries. i think that's a real disappointment. it's it's awful. it's and the pac-12 has been around for over a hundred years. it's a pact. well get it you're on the
4:42 pm

♪ ♪ pride month here at abc 7 today lgbtq. seniors sharing their coming-out stories. being gay would be a curse. being gay was one of the worst things you could. bring upon your family. my name is jim christart. i'm 75 years old and i came out as gay man in. well actually two years ago.
4:54 pm
i am 21 years old. i'm sacramento i started coming out when i was around 14. i never really totally just like came out and told somebody i'm gay. scary no matter who you're telling if even if you know for a fact that they're gonna be supportive. i want to work for chevron in the 1980s. i was 32 years old. but i would have never told anyone there that i was gay because i because i would have been afraid that that i might have lost. job, i had been in a heterosexual marriage for not quite 51 years. and i never came out during that time. i just came out after my wife passed away. about a year into my marriage. i really felt, you know, something is not working with me. my father always drilled into me you make your bed your lie in
4:55 pm
it. so i said well. guess i'm in this for the long run. just stifle yourself get back in that closet and stay there so i did. that is a complicated question. what made me wait? so long, i tried over the many years of my marriage trying to explain to my wife that i wasn't happy. and it was nothing she did. although she took good very personally, and so she would never hear. never wanted to hear anything about my being gay it was illegal for. we met in college. we were both going to cal state long beach at the time. she was she was walking through the gym and i was handing out towels in the gym. and that's where i first saw her. and i said man, i got to know her.
4:56 pm
we got married. and we were 58 years old. because we could not get married sooner than that. yeah, that was the soonest. i knew i would never like lose my job over being gay which is something i'm really grateful for because i know generations before me didn't have that privilege. i know for my grandma it was it was a lot more difficult coming out her sister. it was also gay and she came out before her and i know that there was a lot of just like tension in the family here. i am 75 years old. and i'm trying to figure out. something my life what my life would have been in my 20s or 30s and it's it's impossible. so i'm doing the best i can meeting people meeting other guys who are gay. who understand me? this is what i need to be.
4:57 pm
with people who affirm finally who i am pride means acceptance. for who we are and being able to celebrate that i'm just so grateful to the lgbt generations before me who've paved the way for all of this acceptance that we have, you know, obviously, it's still not perfect now far from perfect, but it sure is way better than it was 50 years ago or even in 10 years ago when was starting to figure out in many parts of our society being gay is more accepted and understood? and i guess i am a little jealous in that way and that i was born much too soon. much too soon. that's it for abc 7 news at 4
