Continuing to Fail to See the Million Dollars Worth of Damage Due to the Koret Children’s Quarter Arson

Monday, December 11th, 2017

All right, so I had this last week but I suppose I didn’t articulate myself so well, so here you go, this is what the “million-dollar” hole looks like at Koret Chil’rens Quarter some six months after the arson:

Of course they’ve cleaned up a bit already, perhaps they’ve spent $100,000 so far, IDK, but couldn’t they have filled in this hole with stuff already and couldn’t they have budgeted less than seven figures?

(Note that the clean up so far doesn’t include hauling away all the green plastic melty, as you can still see it right there.)

Anyway, that’s my beef, my Beef Of The Week…

Failing to See the Million Dollars Worth of Damage Due to the Koret Children’s Quarter Arson

So where’s the million dollars worth of damage? It’s in the middle somewhere. There’s sort of a hole where the non salvageable stuff was.

Apply the Mexico City test – would this damage have been all fixed up by now Down Mexico Way? Oh yes. And would the bill be for _less_ than $1,000,000?

Oh yes.

And you know, a half-year later, some of the melty plastic masses on the ground from the heat are still there, for some reason.

[UPDATE: Oh, per Andy Bosselman of Hoodline, the arson occurred early this morning.]

Here’s the news, via Peter Chu:

So now the largest play structure at five-star Yelp-rated Koret Children’s Quarter(s) in Golden Gate Park is shut down. And the part that is burned, with the slides and roofs, is connected to the climbing pole / pyramid you can see here on the right, and they’re connected to a few other things as well. All roped off:

So that’s it for the bigger kids play area at Koret now, and for a long time it looks like.

Look at the black burned out area underneath. Guzzoline? IDK. There used to be an enclosed slide on the left here – it’s all gone now.

I’m thinking this is a teardown. I’m thinking this will take months to fix.

Anyway, here are a few shots, showing the melted meltiness, some porno for pyros:

All the deets:

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 18, 2011 – Salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM), the enterprise cloud computing (http://www.salesforce.com/cloudcomputing/) company, today announced results for its fiscal second quarter ended July 31, 2011.

“We’re expecting over 40,000 people to register for Dreamforce which takes place in San Francisco later this month. It’s the cloud event of the year where attendees can learn how to supercharge their relationships with employees and customers using social, mobile and open cloud technologies,” said Marc Benioff, Chairman and CEO, salesforce.com. “We hope to see you there.”

Salesforce.com delivered the following results for its fiscal second quarter:

Revenue: Total Q2 revenue was $546 million, an increase of 38% on a year-over-year basis. Subscription and support revenues were $509 million, an increase of 38% on a year-over-year basis. Professional services and other revenues were $37 million, an increase of 44% on a year-over-year basis.

Earnings per Share: Q2 GAAP net loss per share was ($0.03), and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share increased 3% year-over-year to $0.30. These GAAP and non-GAAP results include a one-time charge of $0.04 per diluted share associated with the legal settlement disclosed in the Form 8-K filed on June 15, 2011. The company’s non-GAAP results exclude the effects of approximately $55 million in stock-based compensation expense, approximately $19 million in amortization of purchased intangibles, and approximately $3 million in net non-cash interest expense related to the company’s convertible senior notes. Non-GAAP EPS calculations are based on 143 million diluted shares outstanding during the quarter, including approximately 4 million shares associated with the convertible senior notes and warrants. GAAP EPS calculations are based on a basic share count of approximately 135 million shares.

Customers: Net paying customers rose approximately 6,300 during the quarter to finish at approximately 104,000. This was a quarterly record for the company. Since July 31, 2010, the company added 21,600 net paying customers, an increase of 26% on a year-over-year basis. As discussed on May 19, 2011, the company will no longer provide the customer metric on a quarterly basis, but expects to provide periodic updates on achievement of customer milestones in the future.
