    1. He outspent Bass by very wide margins, largely using his own money (see below).


      What the hell is Rick Caruso doing spending over $100M!! to defeat Karen Bass? He put in $101,477,500 of his own money along with $3.4M from a group opposing Bass compared to Bass's roughly $18M raise.

      So many better things he could have done with that money, if in fact, people really think that he's got ideas that will actively make the city better.

      Caruso outspent Bass 5 to 1.

      Caruso spent $400 per vote for the 252,476 votes he got (as of 2022-11-09 9:24 AM).

Near-infrared photography captures, in pictures, reflected light that lies outside the visible light spectrum, or what humans can see Near-infrared light on the electromagnetic spectrum has wavelengths that are longer than visible light but slightly shorter than mid- or far-infrared11 Photosynthesizing plants absorb most visible light and reflect near-infrared light Thus, a near-infrared photograph can visually show areas with high or low degrees of photosynthesis, an indicator of plant health (Figures 46 and 47)12 The photographs can be taken with a near-infrared camera or by purchasing a kit to alter a traditional digital camera Post-processing software can be used on the photograph to analyze plant health1
