SFMTA and Health Department Use Street Artist Fnnch's Honey Bear for New Vaccination Campaign Local street artist fnnch's masked honey bear mascot of the pandemic is being put to use in an official capacity in a new ad campaign from the SF Department of Public Health (DPH), encouraging the vaccine-hesitant to go get their shots. You've seen the honey bears all over town since last spring, after fnnch said he wanted to brighten up boarded-over storefronts with the honey bear image — wearing an N95 mask. Now, over a year since our collective nightmare began, fnnch is getting some city money and you will see a masked and Band-Aided honey bear on posters at bus stops and elsewhere around the city, holding a sign that says "Vaccinated." It's a new campaign being done in partnership between the SFMTA and DPH. Unfortunately, the URL the city printed on the bottom of the first round of posters is wrong — it should be not I love this fnnch campaign for vaccines but the URL is wrong, @sfgov . It should be just dot-gov, not — Tomomi ⚡ Imura (@girlie_mac) April 9, 2021 "San Francisco has a history of doing these types of campaigns working with the community and local artists. We’re really reaching people where they live and are,” said DPH Director Dr. Grant Colfax, speaking to KPIX . Later this week, these vaccinated honey bears are also expected to appear on city buses. This is the second time fnnch's work has been in the news in recent weeks, after he partnered with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to create Sister Honey Bear prints for an Easter fundraiser. Vaccine hesitancy among Black and Latinx populations seems to be fading, but a recent Gallup poll still found that we will not approach herd immunity nationally without more buy-in from Americans who are still wary or dismissive of the vaccine effort — thank you, Trump. The poll found that 55% of Black Americans say they’ve either already been vaccinated or plan to get a shot, and that is up 14% from two months earlier. But among white Americans, it's still only 64% of adults who say they've been vaccinated or plan to be, and 61% of Latinx Americans. "We are addressing questions about vaccine hesitancy and that people have the information they need to make an informed decision," Colfax says to KPIX, regarding the honey bear campaign. If people get to the correct URL , it takes them to a page that explains all the options for getting a vaccine appointment — and information about the eight prioritized zip codes where low-barrier vaccination is now available on a drop-in basis. More than half of San Franciscans have already gotten at least a first shot, and eligibility for all ages 16 and up begins on Thursday, April 15. If you're having trouble finding an appointment, don't give up! They are only released in small batches on — and try hunting one down at a Walgreens or CVS elsewhere in the Bay Area if you have access to a car (the CVS website seems to have the most appointments in the early morning hours after 2 a.m.). Or there are also mass vaccination sites at City College and the Oakland Coliseum. And hopefully in a few weeks appointments won't seem so scarce!

Billionaire Saudi Family Breaks Mold on Kingdom’s Secrecy (Bloomberg) -- For Ahmad BinDawood, last year’s share offering in the eponymous Saudi grocery business was a chance to shape his legacy at the family firm he’s worked at since the age of eight, while cementing a $3.1 billion fortune built over the decades by his father and uncles.As the October public offering of BinDawood Holding Co. got underway, details emerged of some $76 million in previously undisclosed loans made by the Saudi company to family members. In a departure from the traditional secrecy associated with the kingdom’s family firms, Jeddah-based BinDawood revealed everything, put the IPO on hold and gave buyers the chance to take their money back.As the loans were quickly repaid, the sale resumed and eventually raised about $500 million for the family, attracting $29 billion in bids along the way.“We have to be very transparent with investors,” BinDawood said in an interview in Riyadh last month. “If there is any disclosure at any time that we need to make, we will go ahead and do it. So we took this on the shoulder and decided to announce it.”The success of the IPO has helped establish BinDawood, 37, as one of a new breed of Saudi executives rising within a corporate world that was largely off-limits to foreigners until a few years ago. What’s more, it has made him emblematic of a drive to shake up traditional ways of doing business, dovetailing with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s goal of transforming the oil-rich kingdom into a regional business hub.That find this mold-breaking character can even be seen inside BinDawood stores. The past few months have seen the company doing prominent Valentine’s Day and Easter promotions, a move unthinkable just a few years ago in a country that has historically adhered to a strict Wahhabist interpretation of Islam.Prince Mohammed’s commitment to reshaping the economy isn’t all working in BinDawood’s favor. A sudden decision to triple value added tax last year hit consumer spending. Higher customs duties and fees on expatriates are driving up costs for Saudi firms, too. And all at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic has been stoking unemployment.“We remain cautious of near-to-mid term growth across the consumers space as market size shrinks on potential expat depopulation,” said Mehwish Zafar, a senior equity analyst at Arqaam Capital in Dubai who has a “hold” recommendation on the shares. Like-for-like sales growth will probably be negative until at least 2022, he said, with growth only coming from new store openings or acquisitions.Shares in BinDawood jumped more than 30% in the days immediately after the sale. They have since slipped back, showing as of Monday a gain of about 11.5% from the listing price.It’s a performance that has helped buttress the family’s bid to diversify into other assets while strengthening the core business, a goal identified by Ahmad BinDawood as key to avoiding the kind of strife his father feared might undermine the business as it passed to a new generation.“The majority of family businesses don’t survive the transition to the third generation, and that’s something that concerned my father a lot,” BinDawood said.Pilgrims ProgressThe rise of the BinDawood business has been some 40 years in the making. Once a small-time vendor of Arabian perfumes and groceries to pilgrims visiting the Islamic holy sites of Mecca and Medina, it is now a nationwide concern spanning supermarkets and hypermarkets, hotels and distribution centers. The grocery business alone employs more than 10,000 people across 74 stores.Ahmad BinDawood’s own destiny was sealed as soon as his father, Abdulrazzag BinDawood graduated in the 1980’s from the King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals in Dhahran. Instead of following his peers into the oil industry, he decided to join his brothers Ismail and Abdullah in their burgeoning retail trade.Which is why Ahmad found himself on the front line at such a young age. At just eight, he was helping to sell items to the pilgrims during his school holidays, envious of friends who were away avoiding Saudi Arabia’s scorching summers.“Our friends were traveling and off enjoying themselves and sometimes we would would ask: why not us?” BinDawood said.
