"Where we take ten minutes getting smarter on the Tech Business About sponsored by Bridge Bank people venture wisely. Today's show why the new unemployment number is even worse than it looks and who got left out of the two trillion dollar stimulus bill the first bailing out hospitals so last night the US Senate did pass the two trillion dollar stimulus bill and it includes help for hospitals and related parts of the healthcare system. This is something. Hospitals have been begging for and the key pieces a one hundred billion dollar no-strings-attached fund for hospitals and other healthcare providers so they can continue to receive the support they need for covert nineteen related expenses and lost revenue and quote in short. It helps the helpers the bill also increases payments to hospitals treating Medicare patients with covert nineteen. It requires employers and insurers to pay hospitals and labs for cove in nineteen tests if a contract isn't already in place and it temporarily suspends the so-called called sequestration of Medicare payments which cut provider reimbursement by two percent. It's what the hospital is wanted. And then some particularly rural hospitals that were already struggling and some urban public hospitals that are being overrun with corona virus cases. But they're also some things that didn't make the cut particularly when it comes out of pocket. Patient costs will dig into all of it and twenty seconds with actually healthcare reporter. Bob Herman the first this. The Equity Fund Resources Group at Bridge Bank is a central hub for the venture capital and private equity communities offering banking services for funds partners in their portfolio companies bridge banks financial solutions designed for the entire innovation ecosystem and include creative credit solutions robust treasury and cash management capabilities and a suite of international banking products bridge. Bank is a division of Western Alliance Bank Bridge Bank be bold venture wisely. We're joined now by access. Healthcare reporter Bob Herman prior to the corona virus crisis were there a lot of hospitals. Were already running kind of thin when it came to finances. Yeah there definitely were. The hospital system is kind of bifurcated. There hospitals that have not been doing while. The case is very clear in rural hospitals in a lot of public safety net hospitals but then there are other hospitals may the four prophets in especially some of the larger not for profit academic centers. That have been doing quite well. So there's kind of varying across The rural in public sickness ruined the worst. Some of the other ones have been doing quite well with this. What we've seen over the last couple of weeks and the corona virus crisis and particularly which seems to be particularly hitting some of those larger urban hospitals in cities like New York Seattle. Explain why those systems also right now felt they needed a bailout or or was not for them. Was this for that other category that that smaller rural hospital group so last week there was a call where a lot of rural hospitals in public safety hospitals. They spoke with reporters. They're basically saying we need money as soon as us for some rural hospitals in Public Safety Nets. They were close in that meeting. Payroll a running out of supplies face masks gowns and ventilators. It was clear for them that they were on some kind of brink of collapse because they were already kind of living on the edge anyway and we see that New York public hospital systems are that are absolute overwhelms reporters on the ground there basically compared to wars on some of the other hospitals in New York you know the newer presbyterians or the nyu lingo those have plenty of money. They're not in any danger. Going under the bill of money is presumably for those more at risk. But there's a lot we don't know about it presumably aren't the ones who are going to get the money but you say the allocations aren't specific yet. What are the say one or two or three biggest things you still want to know about how what passed last night is going to be actually implemented right. So we know that hostels writ large are going to be at a no strings attached one hundred billion dollar fund. We know that. Hhs can be setting up some kind of process. A hospital can apply to get money from that fund. We have no idea what that looks like. That's going to be very important. I think everyone would want the hassles most at risk to get that money. But I really WanNa know what that process is going to look like. I think it's also we're GONNA need to know how these enhanced Policies are going to play out his well explained what enhancement? What what do you mean? By enhanced payment policies sure. So there are some enhancement. Policies were basically hospitals either get higher rates now or they can basically putting claims and say give us an advance on some of her medicare payments. Because we're so overwhelmed right now so we need to understand if those payments are enough to cover some of their costs and there's also other holidays into bail out that basically allow hostels out of network labs to charge whatever they want to commercial insurers and employers. There's a lot that we know is in there and it seems necessary for hostile there also. Are these things where Renault hospitals could presumably benefit. I just want to add one of the thing. The reason why this is even on the table is because hassles getting overwhelmed with supplies or cost earning higher and they had to cancel a lot of electric procedures joint replacements. Things that aren't necessary to do right away. And they that lost revenue is going to hurt them lights the money that is being allocated more than ten percents than what we normally spend an entire year on hospital care so this is not some kind of small amount of money and there are a lot of hospitals that have been doing quite well so it's still unclear who's going to totally benefit from that bob quickly on the politics of this. Democrats were saying earlier in the week after. Mcconnell came out with his original version of this stimulus package late last week. Democrats said that they needed money for hospitals and that was a big thing that they said they were going to fight for with democratic charges. Accurate from your perspective that Republicans. At least in their initial bill were not dealing with the hospital crisis financially. I think old political parties were allocating money to hospitals Democrats. Were very much more willing to throw more money at this situation. We saw that as results especially with chuck. Schumer Chuck Schumer's very close with the hustle industries. State's men he was the big reason. Why funding up. Which but I think in all the bills that I've seen there had been funding allocated to hustles. That was just a matter of magnitude. Bob Is they're concern about you know when we talk about allocation is there a concern about allocation when it comes to time in other words that if hhs and everyone else if they start saying okay. These hospitals are going to get this amount of money that they're going to give money right now. Too areas that are being hardest. Hit like New York which makes sense except it might mean. There is no money left when an area gets hit in a month from now that we're not even talking about yet writes in. That's why so much matters about how this current pool funding ultimately gets allocated. Who GETS TO APPLY? Is there a structure for for some perserve or allocation board? Those who get hardest at now. That's why I think in others have thought the same thing that there might be another stainless package down the road whether Haas was getting included as part of that. We don't know but it would not be surprising because hospitals have been banging this drum for weeks now saying we need money. We need money. Obviously some part of that is true but if we blow through this one hundred billion dollars in a matter of a month. I'm going to question whether all of a sudden we need to throw more money at that because we know that some hospitals do have the means stood cope with definitely not all a lot to very quickly. But is there anything in here? That is for patient. In other words that would actually lower the cost of coverage of health care for patients. Some other stimulus bills patients if they go and get a test to see if they have co nineteen. They don't have any clamor that that means they don't have to be a copay. Nothing but in in this most recent package there had been a hope to tackle what are called surprised medical bills as when you go to. The hospital may be a doctor. That's out of network. And then he gets tagged for a bill later on. That was not addressed your patient. That's very concerning. Because you might be sick you might be worried and then leising would you about two months from now is getting a bill from the hospital so that was not included. Also subsidies for Cobra. Which is the insurance that you can pay for if you lose your job. So there's concern that people who lose their jobs and get sick. Hardly any coverage there are other options. But they're concerned that they might not be able to keep their employer coverage reasonable and not surprised medical bills. Bob think that was the last time you were on the show. We didn't episode on that for folks who WanNa look that was December eleventh of last year. Bob Permanent Axios. Thank you so much for joining us. Thanks Dan my final two right after this.

A division of Western Alliance Bank be bold venture wisely. Now it's ever my final two and I up. It's Today's news that nearly three point three million Americans filing for unemployment benefits last week up from just one hundred and fifty thousand the week before. It's the biggest ever spike in. Us history and is actually worse than it sounds. How so for starters? The numbers don't include independent contractors like GIG ECONOMY WORKERS SECOND. It doesn't include anyone who was furloughed instead of laid off a distinction. Lets people keep their healthcare insurance but they don't continue to get paid and finally there are all sorts of reports that certain state unemployment offices were unable to process all of their claims in time for the weekly deadline because of the massive volume increases so expect more bad news next report and maybe worse news and finally speaking of getting left out the two trillion dollar stimulus package passed last night by the Senate is designed to act as a sort of safety net for American citizens from residents and businesses but not all people for businesses will necessarily qualify on the personal side. Everything is tied the two thousand eighteen taxes. And the more you make the less you get so if you earn significantly less today than you didn't two thousand eighteen you don't get the added benefit and if you happen to not work at all in two thousand eighteen. Maybe because you are a fulltime student then you're also out of luck and as something that makes it even more complicated. This is all being tied to direct deposit. So if you didn't file your taxes with direct deposit in two thousand eighteen it could be weeks maybe months before you actually get your check on the business side two categories to feel forgotten this morning. I anything associated with cannabis. They're still illegal on a federal level and this is a federal program second many smaller private equity owned companies specifically the bills. Small business loans are for any company with fewer than five hundred employees but the small business administration looks at ownership. That means if you're a private equity owned company with one hundred employees you wouldn't qualify if you're private equity owner has nine other companies with one hundred employs each. You're all considered affiliated even though you're really not expect lobbyists push hard for an exemption but it's notable that there was no exemption in the bill and we're done big thanks for listening to my producers.

"So we take just ten minutes to get smarter on the Clean Tech Business and politics sponsored by Bridge Bank bold venture wisely. I'M DENVER MAC today. Show tech versus the virus and Uncle Sam of last resort but first a manufactured crisis politicians love to talk about the importance American manufacturing but almost always in the context of jobs today though. Us manufacturers have become vital because of what they make more than. Who's making it specifically? Companies are being asked to build tens of thousands of ventilators and neither stitch together a repurpose billions of face masks to ward off some of the ugliest corona virus scenarios. And just for context in New York State. They believe they need thirty thousand ventilators but as of yesterday had just seven thousand. If worse does come to worse. Doctors there will either need to try to keep multiple patients alive on the same ventilator or more likely before to make some very gruesome decisions. This is the reason why you've heard about auto makers and companies like honeywell rushing to build ventilators and alcohol companies rushing to make hand sanitizer and the FDA has indeed eased some restrictions to help grease the wheels particularly on ninety five facemasks. One thing. That hasn't happened yet. Though is president trump fully implementing the defense production act which would direct certain private companies to begin or ramp up production. He says it's because manufacturers and other companies are already doing their parts voluntarily although again New York Governor Andrew Cuomo keeps publicly pleading with trump on the ventilator shortage in short. Lots has been done already. But we're still playing catch up. In twenty seconds we'll go deeper with axios. Reporter Joann Muller but first this the Equity Fund Resources Group at Bridge Bank is a central hub for the venture capital and private equity communities offering banking services for funds partners in their portfolio companies bridge banks financial solutions designed for the entire innovation ecosystem and include creative credit solutions robust treasury and cash management capabilities and a suite of international banking products. Bridge Bank is a division of Western Alliance Bank Bridge Bank be bold venture wisely. We're joined now by accidents. Joann Muller can we start here with what the president can or can't do and specifically the Defense Production Act? Is He right from your perspective that he doesn't need to fully implemented because private industry is already doing what the Defense Production Act was designed for? Well he's correct in that companies are under pressure from him he calls it leverage. They are coming forward to come up with solutions. They're trying to find partners how they can help. But the Defense Production Act has two parts. One is prioritizing who gets the material products and then also compelling companies to produce it. He is focused on that. He doesn't have to compel anyone to do it because they're volunteering. You know I've talked to companies and they are saying it's Kinda chaotic and there is no central clearing house for abyss and a little organization would be nice. When governor Cuomo of New York talks he talks about the need for ventilators. He obviously wants the defense production. Act to be fully implemented but he also talks about wanting to be able to tap this federal stockpile of ventilators. And it's estimated. There could be like twenty thousand of them if there's a federal stockpile of ventilators. Why aren't they being sent to a place where somebody needs ventilators? That's an excellent question and I don't think the administration has given a good answer yet yesterday. They did say that they're going to send four thousand of that twenty thousand ventilators to New York City which is good but not nearly enough for what New York needs. Cuomo says they need thirty thousand in the next couple of weeks to handle the surge that they anticipate what I also find. Interesting IS CUOMO is saying. Send all twenty thousand to me. I will use them to treat our own patients and then when our peak passes and other cities are starting to peak. I will personally have them delivered to those cities. These are machines that can be reused however it's a very sophisticated machine. The challenge is the disposable parts that go into individual patients. And you know we need more of those arts. Can you talk a bit on? The manufacturing side companies that don't normally make ventilators or at least one of the leading ones that now are changing some of their production lines to be able to make ventilators. Well what we're seeing mostly right now is auto companies you know. There's a great history of the auto industry stepping up during World War Two to make tanks and bombs and airplanes so they specialize in mass production. So the natural industry go to so. Ford as already announced something. Gm has announced something. Tesla CEO Elon. Musk says he's going to do something we haven't seen anything yet which has changed for him. Because if I said this is being overblown than Oh if we need to we will and now he seems to realize the need. I think so. He did manage to buy twelve hundred ventilators in China and had airlifted right to L. A. X. Where they're being put to use now so. California's very grateful for that aspect. There is report today that he's trying to set up some sort of what we don't know for sure that it's Tesla but we assume it is because the location of this facility would be Reno Nevada which is where Tesla has its giant gigafactory so they certainly have batteries which would be very useful in these machines. You know when you think of World War Two. That was kind of a a slow build sort of thing and obviously went on for years. Here we're talking about needing things immediately and certainly within the next couple of weeks. How difficult is it say for a Ford General Motors? Which has plans that have been making cars and trucks to basically retrofit them in change to make ventilators? Can they do it with their existing equipment or do they need to basically set up? A new facility is what honeywell is doing in Rhode Island exactly. That's the problem. It right is in the auto companies have not been very specific on how quickly they can get up to speed on some of this. But you know you start with tooling so you have a mold. In order to make the peace that will then create the part that goes into a ventilator. So it's a long process. What we do know is that the automakers are very good at using their own leverage to free up supply chains. I think this is gonNA come from mostly is helping existing manufacturers of ventilators crank up their own production joins some of the companies and you've mentioned are companies that have cut worker hours. Even maybe done some furloughs because there's just not consumer demand for consumer products right now is making ventilators and things like that. Is that an opportunity to also bring these workers back online absolutely Dan. So for instance in Indiana General Motors is looking to set up some production in one of their own factories that it was staffed by U. A. W. Members who are now idle. They have told me they're likely to seek volunteers. Paid volunteers of course who are willing to come into the plant to make the ventilator so understand that the one reason that the automakers shut down fairly quickly was because the UAW workers were afraid to work. Under these circumstances we've already had two. Uaw members died in factories from this disease. And so they're justifiably afraid. Actress Joy Muller who writes the axios navigate newsletter which you can get it signed up actually dot com. Thanks for joining all right. Thank you my final two right after this.

Spic's and general partners including creative credit solutions robust treasury management capabilities and a suite of International Banking Services Bridge Bank. A division of Western Alliance Bank be bold venture wisely. Now it's time for my final. Two and first up is yet another reason why America is so behind many other countries when it comes to tracking and stopping the spread of Corona. Virus is actually is in afraid reports. Today we just won't adopt the same technologies for both practical and cultural reasons. For example in Taiwan local authorities have enforced quarantines by using a mobile phone based virtual fence. That relies on Geo location in Hong Kong these electric bracelets for similar purpose in Singapore residents there were required to download a contact tracing APP and in Israel. Emergency measures were just approved monitor cell phones of those infected or suspected of being infected. All of those measures do help slow the viruses spread but they run counter to American civil liberties. Moreover our lack of widespread testing including growing worries about shortages of reagents needed for new tests would make much of such monitoring. Irrelevant the bottom line. Tracing Tech can help just not here and finally as I tape this Wednesday morning. We still don't know exactly. What is in the multi trillion dollar? Bipartisan stimulus plan agreed upon late last night by the White House and Senate leaders. One thing to watch is if any of the money to industry and big business comes with equity or if US tax payers will only get eventual upside from debt interest payments. Here's Boeing CEO. Dave Calhoun when asked yesterday on Fox business about tying equity to government bailout of his company. They just and we've got plenty. Apparently beggars can't be choosers. For what it's worth axios asked Boeing to share even one of those plenty of other options but the company didn't and were done vic. Thanks for listening to my producers.

Financial solutions are designed for the entire innovation ecosystem and include creative credit solutions robust treasury and cash management capabilities and a suite of international banking products. Bridge BANK IS DIVISION OF WESTERN ALLIANCE BANK BRIDGE BANK BE BOLD venture wisely. We're joined now by Paul Cohen. An executive vice president and head of North American markets at the Nasdaq so talked. We just start with kind of this big picture. There's been some discussion some debate mostly on twitter about whether the markets the stock markets should remain open. Or if they should close for a little bit just because there's been so much volatility. Where do you stand on? Obviously you guys have stayed open. What's the argument right now? The best argument for keeping markets open our position is and wish going favor of keeping. The market's open and the reason for that is. The markets have been functioning well today and while people don't like the direction of the market that it's taking we empathize without completely. It's worth noting that the functioning of the market has stood up to the test of time into the volatility seems so exchanges the clearinghouse and brokers have been able to successfully managed he's elevated volumes involuntary date if we should shut down the market our concern is that will lead to greater volatility after the fragility of markets and then eventually hurt investor confidence. And if we look just to the Philippines who announced the market closing a few weeks back for two days when they opened up they were twenty six percent down next day so we have to remember that investors need access to capital during times of stress in the markets can be an important source liquidity and issuers. What if we have a biotech company that wants to raise capital for on d work related to the virus? It's important that we have markets open for those types of yours as well. Talk about the markets functioning. Would there be something that you guys are watching kind of a canary in the coal mine. In other words something that would change your mind if you saw X. Greg questions from the technology perspective were comfortable. We've been able to handle the the thing that I think we're looking at now is being a few weeks into this. Crisis is just the liquidity and capital available in the system to ensure that the plumbing does work. It's supposed to so if we start to see stress within particular segments of the market or a particular participants in the market that would concern us and we would want to look out for that and we will generally. I see that on the side of the equation. Where if a particular participant was to say we can no longer do business. We just don't have the capital or liquidity. Did you not could send a shock through the system that we would want to assess and understand as we think about the functioning of the markets. Nasdaq works electrical. You guys don't have floor. Traders like New York Stock Exchange had until today outside of the fact that I assume you're working from home or at least a lots and lots of your executives and employees are working from home. He talked to me a little bit about kind of how you guys have adapted what have been the biggest changes you've had to get used to over the last week or two operationally for me. Personally I am starting to miss my commute a little bit now for for us as a team. But we've got to understand over the last three to four weeks is we've grown our understanding of how to work remotely and so in the middle of February. We instituted our business. Continuity plan that started with enhanced visitor policies restricted travel in the beginning of March. We went to split team framework in which working from home was an option and then more recently over the last couple of weeks as well. We've implemented social and physical distancing where we have now folks working out a backup locations so just making sure that the information flow was robust. Making sure that we know how to act with one another as we're in different locations was important because we want to continue to operate the markets. We don't anticipate any concerns and to be quite frank it's in our DNA to work remotely because we do have a lot of locations across. It's actually we do know how to do that. We know how to take advantage of their technology. Afforded us to work remotely. But it's just a question of over kind we just have to change some of the processes that so that we can do what we do. Well you made a comment about. Yeah what if a biotech company wants to go to the markets to raise money either secondary offering or possibly as an IPO right now given the volatility we see. Do you foresee at least in the next week or two or maybe three weeks that you could actually see new issues. Equity issues come to market seems pockets of activity in biotech and health and specs and we had an IPO just a few weeks ago although a few weeks ago was kind of a lifetime ago at this point right. So you're right. I think the market conditions have changed and I think potential issuers will probably reassess Tommy. I'll just show this with your perspective of looking at S. ones which we use as a proxy to understand a pipeline it's still pretty robust and compares favourably the two thousand nineteen and in the background. We're still engaged with these potential issues. We still see them doing the work to prepare themselves. So we're hoping not. It's just them pushing out there Tomlin's and if they do will be here to welcome them when they come into the market so final question for you a year ago yesterday. Zum filed for its. Ipo actually went public on the Nasdaq in April. When you guys first started talking to zoom zoom filed. It's one to go public. Did you have any sense that a year later it would be arguably the single most important company not just an American businesses but in American classrooms. No I don't think we could have envisioned what's transpired over at six to nine months but I will tell you this. Here's an interesting point. I think as we make our way through this crisis the silver lining could be that we will find new ways to work together that we will think are better than the past so whether it's zoom or Microsoft and teams and those types of collaboration tools. I think what will come out of. This is a greater sense of uncomfortable working with these tools. In fact they make me more productive in fact. I like those tools more than been in the past so that might be the silver lining in all of this. We changed the way in which we work together as a business as an industry as we come out of this crisis. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for having me.

A division of Western Alliance Bank be bold venture wisely for my final two and first of his Uber who CEO this morning sent the letter to President Trump asking that America's millions of GIG economy workers knock get left out of the economic stimulus packages. The issue here is that Uber's drivers and delivery workers aren't technically Uber Employees. They're independent contractors and the same goes for similar workers at lift jordache scrub an Amazon flex. This is a labor battle. That's been playing out in the courts for typically in California but the situation is now more fraught because some stimulus suggestions explicitly focused on expanding unemployment benefits for quote unquote employees with no mention of independent contractors. The bottom line if uber gets what it wants from trump and congress could effectively codify a third class of American worker and finally there is some growing concerns at America's broadband infrastructure won't be able to handle the strain of so many of us being at home not just working from home but also streaming a ton of content via platforms netflixing Disney plus. It's something that actually began to happen in Europe recently so as actually in a free report this morning the FCC has granted additional chunks of airwaves to the major wireless carriers on a temporary basis to help them meet added demand something FCC Commissioner Brendan Cartels axios.

"So we just ten minutes to get smarter on the Tech Business. Politics Sponsor Bridge Fang be bold venture wisely. I'm Dan for Mac. Today Show Amazon staffs up and old Hollywood turns to streaming the first the race for a cure yesterday. A woman in Seattle became America's first human subject of a novel Corona Virus Vaccine Trial. This potential civilization saver is based on a formulation selected by moderna therapeutics in collaboration with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. What's particularly notable? Here is that. Madeira isn't an old line. Legacy Pharma Company. In fact most people outside of life sciences circles had never even heard of them before they went public just fourteen months ago without a single product and market. Madeiran company was developed in the offices of a venture capital firm. Just a stone's throw away from Mit in Cambridge Massachusetts with the idea that you could basically use something called Messenger. Rna OR MRI Rene to help people make medicines vaccines within their own cells and this is different than how biotech usually works. They make a product in the lab and then patients either swallowed or injected. This Madera process should in theory make its drugs faster and cheaper to produce in part because it doesn't need to create giant bespoke manufacturing facilities for each new formulation in this particular case. Madeira was already working with a ID on Corona virus vaccines. When word came out about the novel Corona Virus Chinese authorities released the new ones genetic code on January eleventh and just a few days later Maderno was already at work on it focusing all of its efforts and designing its vaccine on a computer without even having the virus inside it's labs to be clear. Maderna's process may move fast in terms of vaccines. But we're still likely talking about a best case scenario of months and months of clinical trials and then FDA approval this time next year again best case and it may not work but for now but Derna is fastest along on something we all may need in order to return our lives to normal it. Fifteen seconds we'll go deeper but actually healthcare reporter. Bob Herman the first. This Bridge Bank believes in the risk-takers the game changers disrupters those committed to leveraging innovation to make the world a better place that's why bridge bank has been dedicated to providing financial solutions to sponsor back emerging technology and growth companies for nearly two decades through its national network banking teams and Offices Bridge Bank is a division of Western Alliance Bank Bridge Bank be bold venture wisely actress healthcare reporter Bob Herman yesterday a woman in Seattle becomes the first human clinical trial patient for novel Corona Virus Vaccine. That's the beginning of phase one trial but vaccine. Trials are kind of long processes. So can you walk us through a little bit here? The best case scenario for this vaccine we spoke with modern AC- US to find themselves this morning and he kind of laid out. What could be a hopeful timeline? Obviously very fluids that things could change but phase one this just like any clinical trial. This is the first stop. This is the one where you make sure that your drug or vaccine is safe so after that comes face to end the three trials as to increase the number of patients sped. Get your vaccine. And that's to make sure that your drug is safe and effective and then a face. Three is similar. Larger samples is nets to really hunker down. And make sure that your drug. If it works sell the points it could eventually be used for commercialization and Maderna's CEO told us that best case scenario. Hopefully they get to face three that kind of main clinical trial by the fall. And that's when they would start getting they're going and if that goes well. Hopefully the phase three trial would run and Reno best case scenario by this time next year. Spring Ish. Twenty. Twenty one is hopefully when may be able to get some FDA approved but that means that everything would have to go right? Bob Please explain a little bit to be a vaccine is different than Madison. Right you know medicine is I got sick. The medicine is supposed to make me feel better. Get better a vaccine is preventative prophylactic. How does a clinical trial phase three for example where you'd be talking about thousands of patients? Which is what you need for phase three trial. How does it even work right? So you get injected with the vaccine. What do they then give you corona virus? And make sure you don't get sick with Madonna. This is a unique kind of vaccine. They're using different technology. They're not giving you run virus. Iris they are basically giving patients shop uses a technology. That basically almost makes the salads on kind of drug vectors. This is not an instance where patients are getting injected with corona virus. You mentioned that this thing. Medina which is a company. That's not all that old. This idea that it basically is kind of body. Heal thyself right. You know your cells are supposed to make the medicine and replicate the medicine. I'm wondering kind of broader Pharma question if this works which would obviously be the kind of the biggest highest profile. Top Headline Vaccine in quite some time is what? Madera doesn't terms of drug development. Does that become if not the industry standard? At least are they're going to be lots of copycats. I'm sure I mean this is a live in a world of copycats especially in biotechs. This works well one hundred percent. You'RE GONNA see more by doing this but this is also very hard to burn. It relies on was called Messenger R. In a it's basically manipulating those molecules to turn cells to to fight off any disease and this has been tried in the past and it's kind of it was very difficult so the Madonna tried it. And you know it's also finding out that this is very hard and I think that's what we're going to be learning from these early. Clinical trials here is whether this Mr a technology is something that could be replicated in large scale. I still little too early to declare a victory here but if it does result in any kind of vaccine especially for one in the midst of a pandemic than we would for sure see more investment in technology and one of the things. Bob I found interesting because you and I on that call with the MADERNA's e- Yo- this morning. Was this idea that last year. I guess he said last November they had been talking to. Nih about this idea. Could they design develop and then ramp up manufacturing of a vaccine in case of a pandemic and they were basically going to do a test? Run of something like this this year and then the real thing came. Let's broaden this out a little bit but there are lots of companies right at least working on vaccines clinical trials yet but working there. There's talk this morning. The Pfizer in German biotech might be partnering. Is it fair to say that most large biotech companies are going to be in this space right now trying to be not just the first one to market but yeah trying to be the first one to market maturing? Ceo Toys to with this going on kind of seems like if there are other experimental therapies or work on. You Almost WanNa change your direction. This is almost the only thing that matters right now. It seems very intuitive. That's biotech is GonNa be focusing its energy here but it's also not as vaccines. The Gilead has antiviral called our redemption. Beer that's you know hopefully be could be used for someone who has Kobe nineteen and would use this as a treatments. Vaccines is something. I think. Biotech is focused on a lot more. But it's also more than also antivirals in case it doesn't go away and people would hopefully get some kind of drug treatment as well as a piece of that. Is it also possible that vaccines that have already been developed? We keep talking about corona viruses. If it's a singular thing but corona virus is is really kind of class of viruses and this is specific one which Mike. It's called kind of novel. Corona virus is a possible that other vaccines not just that are being worked on for Corona virus. But for other things could there be another vaccine that basically gets applied to this works. Or is this going to have to be indeed brand new formulation? I don't think we really know yet. I think a lot of our Texans from companies. Want to see if they have drugs currently used. That could be repurpose for this novel. Corona virus so. I think that's an obvious jumping off point because the sciences already been done on all of these drugs. Let's see if we can if it will respond well to defeating this particular strain. We see that with antivirals killiadts Redan severe. It was in kind of being used for Ebola. And now they're saying look. Let's try it for this instead. So it's a natural jumping off point especially with vaccines if you have one that's already been through some kind of scientific rigor we've done this much. Investment let's see if we can also use it for what has become the most pressing health care disease of our time final for Bob. The stock pricing a little bit. And I know it's way too early because there isn't a drug when you talk to the CEO this morning did you ask about pricing. It all again. If I'll end points are met. If he's able to get something out into market next year. Do we have any sense? How much this would cost. Yeah so I asked him and obviously Stefan said it's too early ended as 'cause we don't even know if this is safe effective. I think that's an important. Caveat is despite all the hopefully Still far too early to determine any kind of victory. We need is a safe and effective? But if we get to a point where it's commercialized. He said hopefully that they would price responsibly. We don't know what that means is quantified by. Think it's also worth pointing out. A lot of this is being done in concert with the National Institutes of health. So this is taxpayer funded entity. What many considered you know the gem of scientific research? They are also doing a quite a heavy lift. Here's this is something that taxpayers invested in. You would assume that any kind of Christ's Would reflect that as well.

Jeff bezos apparently has been in daily contact with the White House over issues related to the corona virus although he hasn't spoken directly with President trump and it's unclear if the conversations about delivery supply chain cloud service capacity or all of the above what we do know though is that Amazon has announced plans to hire one hundred thousand new warehouse and delivery workers in the US and also promised to at least temporarily increase. Pay For those jobs by two dollars per hour. Not only should that keep goods flowing housebound Americans but also should create jobs for those displaced by things like bar and restaurant. Closures and finally Corona Virus is creating an unexpected revolution in the film industry. Not so much in terms of production shutting down which it is but rather because some big Hollywood studios are now talking about rolling out already produced films via streaming basically becoming net flicks.

"That's the term being thrown around for federal government proposals to send checks to individual Americans. Some proposals are the checks. Should be one thousand dollars. Some say three thousand dollars as a one time thing while others believe it should be a monthly stipend so long as the corona virus outbreak keeps much of America on lockdown. The basic idea let people keep paying the rent the mortgage and keep the lights on. This is a bit reminiscent of Andrew. Yang's universal basic income concept except. It's a virus this time. Let's stop many Americans from working not technological automation and it came very suddenly not gradually anyway. Here's what US Treasury Secretary. Steve Mnuchin said yesterday in terms of stimulus. This is not like a normal economic situation. The government has requested that parts of this economy. Shut down and the president is determined. You can think of this as business interruption money. The president is determined. We will put money back into this economy to protect hard working Americans in small businesses. The bottom line is that America and the world is facing an unprecedented financial crisis. Much broader base than what we experienced in two thousand eight. The federal government has finally. Maybe belatedly realized that it needs to act with urgency. Even if it can't be sure that it solutions will work in twenty seconds we'll dig deeper including how individual bailouts could affect the food supply chain with AXIOS chief financial correspondent Felix Salmon. The first this bridge bank believes in the risk takers. The Game Changers disrupters those committed to leveraging innovation to make the world a better place. That's why Bridge. Bank has been dedicated to providing financial solutions to sponsor backed emerging technology and growth companies for nearly two decades through its national network of banking teams and offices. Bridge Bank is a division of Western Alliance Bank Bridge Bank be bold venture wisely. We're joined now by accident. Chief Financial correspondent Felix Salmon so Felix. Let's start big picture here. This idea of helicopter money whether it be a thousand dollars two thousand dollars generally speaking. Do you think it's a good idea? It is a very simple and effective way of getting money into the hands of Americans. Real advantage of it is if you can find a relatively simple mechanism for doing it then it just. It's a very quick way of injecting huge amount of money into America at the grass roots. Where it's needed most. The big question is whether there's mechanism Steve Mnuchin. The treasury secretary initially said that he could do it within two weeks which felt like quite a long time. But then I've been hearing things about the end of April. It's actually much other than male checks to everyone than you might think. Feels we talk a little bit about the possible. Unintended consequences here. And I'm thinking particularly in terms of supply chains and food supply chains right now. Even those stores might be sold out of toilet paper Pasta. There's still other things on the shelves. Restaurants can still get raw ingredients. Should there be a concern that every American to get a check in the next couple of weeks that some essential workers may stop going to work because now they can pay the rent to keep the lights on so from a fiscal responsibility standpoint. It does make a certain amount of sense not to give this money to people who aren't going to spend it. The whole point of this stimulus is like to keep money getting spent in the economy and if people are just gonNA put in their savings accounts. That's not going to do a hell of a lot of good. That said the best way to means test is to just give it to everyone. And then in the twenty thousand tax return when we finally feel about out in two thousand twenty one or maybe twenty twenty two if your twenty twenty income was higher than say one hundred and twenty thousand dollars then you have to give it back like you wait and see what people's income turns out to have been rather than trying to do it right now on the basis of what they end in two thousand nine hundred which might not be relevant tool. Why not because? I'm not sure it's so much just about fears to take an. I'm making this up a hypothetical thirty five year old who is concerned about getting corona virus. But doesn't think it's probably going to kill them. Thinks it would just take them off their feet for a couple of days isn't necessarily fear for their own safety or is it that they're president. Probably there governor their mayor their friends and family are saying if you go out if you go to work if you work with other people. You're putting all of us at risk you're endangering your grandparents life aren't we kind of getting to the point. Felix where this concept of going out in certain places being viewed as unpatriotic and endangering other safety the certainly supply of labor question in what you might call essential services for Americans which includes the food supply chain. It also includes things like fire and medical services pharmacists. You know there's a long list of people that you need to be working in the economy and out in the world and a certain percentage of those people going to be a little bit scared about doing that and some of them are not going to want to do it and probably won't do it. So yeah there needs to be a mechanism for trying to find people willing to do those jobs. I suspect there aren't going to be people willing to do those jobs with not entirely. Sure how that's going to play out. I'm personally not particularly concerned that the real constraint there is the financial and I don't think the giving everyone a one off check of a thousand dollars is going to cause a step change uptick in the number of people calling homestead. Feel final question for you. This is arguably a political one more than a financial one. How much faith do you have that? By this time. Next week there actually will be basically a bailout plan at least for individual Americans not necessarily mean we've all gotten our checks in the mail but there will be a process actually beginning pass through Congress signed by the president absolutely and people should be staying at home and should not be going out when it's not essential for the functioning of society. The fact is the in this kind of context and what you're talking about like food supply chains and doctors and nurses and people running public transport and that kind of thing in this context it is necessary to have someone do that job and once it is necessary to have someone do that job. Then if you do it you're actually helping the country rather than hurting it for the rest of us. Yes we should be saying them. Chief financial correspondent for axios.

Now never my final two and I have a soft bank which is threatening to walk away from a three billion dollar tender offer for shares of we work that had originally agreed to last fall. Soft Bank's official explanation via letter said yesterday to investors. Is that several closing? Conditions may not be met by the expected April. I closed eight. Unofficially though this appears to be effort to renegotiate in the face of looming global recession not to mention the fact that we worked entire co working product is hard to square right now with social distancing. Why it matters is that this tender offer wasn't just rich venture capital funds or disgraced ex. Ceo Adam Newman. It was for lots of early. We work employees who were made a promise months ago and who might have made subsequent financial decisions based on that promise just because Softbank can walk away doesn't mean that it should and finally a shoutout to Zuma's pizza now.

"Where we take ten minutes to get you smarter on the Clinton of Tech Business Politics presented by Bridge Bank people old venture wisely. I'm Debra Mark Today show. Why Amazon didn't go green and moved to band government employees from using tick tock but I the corona virus economy. So we're taping this on Thursday morning and as of this moment there are one hundred twenty nine confirmed corona virus cases in the US including a new batch in California related to a cruise ship. Globally the figure is over ninety five hundred infections and nearly thirty three hundred deaths. It is short a worldwide crisis medical facilities in certain areas are already overwhelmed and the US hospital infrastructure simply doesn't have the bed space it would need where we face anything like what. Atlanta Rana faced all sorts of businesses have curtailed travel supply. Chains ARE UNDER SIEGE. And just yesterday Microsoft told people in its headquarters. They work from home for the next few weeks. The Olympics are in doubt and you even have to wonder how. Us election officials would handle voter reticence to visit crowding polling places this November amidst all of it though there are the beginnings of what might be dubbed the Corona virus economy remote work software companies for example report rising usage shares of connected by company peleton briefly spiked this week on investor. Thinking that people will be scared away from gyms and last week clorox was one of just seven s and p five hundred companies to gain value. And the next piece of all. This could be technology particularly robotics and drones. That could help. Do everything from disinfect airplanes and hospital beds to deliver vaccines to remote areas will dig deeper into those possibilities. And Twenty seconds with Axial Joann Muller the first this the Equity Fund Resources Group at Bridge Bank is a central hub for the venture capital and private equity communities offering banking services for funds partners and their portfolio companies bridge banks financial solutions are designed for the entire innovation ecosystem. Me With our team. At this year's Women's Private Equity Summit in Dana Point California March eleventh through the Thirteenth Bridge Bank is a division of Western Alliance Bank Bridge Bank be bold venture wisely. We're joined now by actually this. Is Joanne Muller so Joanne? Let's start before we get specifically to corona virus. How right now do hospitals and other medical facilities currently use say robots to kill pathogens? That could cause other infections. Yes Oh there's actually a company of vinexpo which is using ultraviolet rays in a robot they can We'll this thing into a room like an operating room or some other area where someone may be had Mersa or another infection like that and They leave the room. The king goes on and So did the hat pops up and it. It emits this ultraviolet light and that kills most of the germs and bacteria that you would fear in the hospital also UV robot. That does kind of the same thing on airplanes. Right there are trying to. There's a really interesting company out of La. That's been for five years. It's been trying to market this airlines and Really wasn't a whole lot of traction until corona virus popped up now. Says he's getting quite a lot of incoming calls. It does basically the same thing so basically. Nobody's on the plane. You will this thing in or you don't feel it in itself in and it goes up and down the aisle and it disinfects the plane. Yeah exactly if this company decided to offer its robots for free to all the planes coming into lax from China and they got about twelve planes done until the president. You Know Nick. Stahl travel from China so that foul part but they still have a lot of people airlines at least asking them for meetings now to find out more. At both of those cases the machines still have to be tested to be sure they kill corona virus. But we do know. There's a robot called VICI RIGHT. Which is kind of like an ipad on wheels and doctors have actually used that not to disinfect for Corona Burr disaffected rooms for corona but to actually interact with corona patients. Or at least the first one right. This is actually technology. That's coming on line in a lot of places where there just aren't enough doctors to see all the patients right. So this hospital in Everett Washington was able to use this. It's sort of like a doctor on a stick right so it rolls into the room and the doctors faces on the tablet and they can Apparently they can have some some ways to take the patients temperatures well and you know do some basic stuff to kind of take their vitals but mostly it's Detroit to assess the patient from a distance. Let me ask you often for areas. That don't have doctors but it also sounds like for example at a hospital in Everett Washington clearly doctors and the hospital. That's really to protect the medical professionals right. Because we've seen both here in China and elsewhere that when you look at infections. Medical professionals have been getting infected. A lot with this some of died right and that's exactly what's going on a lot of it started back with. Bola you know in two thousand fourteen. This is when robotics first started thinking about. How can we protect our medical personnel and yet still provide the care that they need and so they began to look at different kinds of robots? Different ways that you could at least handle some of the chores that happen in a hospital maybe not the personal care but minimize the other number of people that are going in and out of a room or a case of Ebola in Africa and speaking of Africa or say other remote areas including inside the. Us There's this company called ZIP line. Which specific mostly works in Africa but their job they use unmanned drones to make deliveries of blood and medical supplies for example in Rwanda. Is there a sense right now? The drones weather zip line or other companies could get used to for example. Deliver vaccines if we get to a point where there is a vaccine for corona virus. Yeah I think that could definitely happen. One big problem though. Is that right now? The FAA doesn't allow drones to fly except within sight of Of the operator you don't let them fly over populated areas and stuff like that so it just so happens that the FAA right now is in the midst of trying to re think its regulations on drones and figure out how to deploy them safely. But you could imagine maybe that in a year or two. Let's say if these regulations are approved that would allow drones to fly outside at the site. Operator you could set up these little distribution centers kind of like a Walmart or an Amazon distribution center and you could fly virus vaccines directly to the places where the hot spots are and it's a lot easier than just spreading the vaccine everywhere and some people don't need it but you could get it to the places that do need it. Little distribution centers may be run by robots. Let me ask the obvious question here though which is kind of the fear you write that. There's a temptation during humanitarian crises. Rush new technology to the scene. We clearly here people even on the medical side and president trump for short almost seems to want to Russia vaccine even though it needs at least a year to test and distribute. Can you talk a bit about that? Is the fear of kind of over technologic sizing. That's not a word but we're GONNA pretend it is this crisis. Is that a real fear here. I mean I think. In general there's a feeling Can do out of that technology to solve it all and so well meaning companies. Who are you know? Call themselves humanitarian. They want to get their technology out as fast as possible. And the robot to the rescue right but we shouldn't cut corners or ben the regulations to try to make that happen until we know. We're not making this situation worse. Joel Muller Vaccines. Thank you so much for joining us. My final two right after this. The Equity Fund Resource Group at Bridge Bank is a central hub for the venture capital and private equity communities leveraging nearly two decades of expertise delivering solutions to emerging technology and Growth Companies Bridge Bank.

A division of Western Alliance Bank be bold venture wisely that was my final two and first of his the conflict between one to fight climate change and wanting your packages delivered as soon as possible. Bloomberg's that with a new report about how the team behind Amazon prime twice considered asking shoppers to consider the environment. While checking out specifically it would have created a green shopping option whereby the delivery time might have been slightly slower but Amazon would have been able to pack the trucks more densely thus reducing fuel use and vehicle emissions but Amazon which has publicly pledged to be net zero carbon by two thousand. Forty did not adopt the plan. Either time it was considered in part Bloomberg reports because of fears that users would hesitate before clicking the buy now button and finally Missouri. Senator Josh Hawley. Yesterday said the hill soon introduce a bill to ban federal employees from using tick talk on government devices saying it's necessary to protect national security and all of our data security for Holly. This is his latest effort to rein in big tax despite his past financial backing from facebook. Director Peter Thiel but actually this is daily reports. The real story here. Isn't this specific bill. It's the tech companies. Us and Chinese are becoming proxies for policy fights between DC invasion. Not just tick Tock and China but also wall way drone maker Degi while the US all sorts of chipmakers. Ironically though Daley also notes that it might be corona virus not regulations that end up really teaching America. The most about what it would mean to decouple from Chinese technology.

"Hello and welcome to the PODCAST hardcastle podcast that takes ten minutes to get you smarter faster on the collision of Tech Business Politics by Bridge Bank people'd Venture wisely filling in for Dan primack today today. I'm axios editor in chief. Nicholas Johnston's on today's show the somber picture of the euro-zone economic situation and Burns next move on taxes but first impeachment a day extorting a foreign leader for the purposes of getting that leader to do your political work to try to find dirt on your opponent is extortion Russian. It is using the assets of the United States of America and the Public Trust for your own corrupt. If you will end certainly political ends so of course it's an an impeachable achievable offense more momentum built among Democrats from Pete and proceedings yesterday than on any other single day of the trump presidency driving the news last night seven Freshman Democrats all with Military Korea National Security backgrounds published a Washington Post op ED saying it will be quote an impeachable offense quote if as alleged about trump's Ukraine phone call the president quote used was his position to pressure a foreign country into investigating political opponent and sought to use taxpayer dollars is Leverage House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who was tried to tamp down impeachment fever has been talking privately yesterday with lawmakers allies about where they are on impeachment in light of the Ukraine revelations and to gauge whether there's a broad shift within the caucus today the behind behind the scenes action could burst into view. Pelosi is meeting with her six committee chairs leading different strands of the trump investigation and reporters will be swarming the weekly meeting of House Democrats the capital for more members ready to join the impeachment bandwagon any shift in particular by more vulnerable moderate members like ones who joined last night's up Ed could force Pelosi's hand as one leadership aide told us last night quote. The speaker is a numbers girl and later this week Joseph Maguire the acting director of National Intelligence will testify in open session before the House Intelligence Committee where he'll surely face questions about the reported whistle blowers complaint that started it all his answers or even non answers could be impeachment bait for Democrats bottom line one summer phone call by president trump is proving to be more of an impeachment catalyst for House Democrats been two years of drip drip revelations from Robert Muller's investigation in fifteen seconds. We'll go deeper on this with axios. White House reporter Trine but first this bridge bank believes in the risk takers the game changers disrupters those committed to leveraging innovation ovation to make the world a better place. That's why Bridge Bank has been dedicated to providing financial solutions to sponsor back emerging technology and growth companies for nearly two decades it through a national network of banking teams and offices Bridge Bank is a division of Western Alliance Bank Bridge Bank be bold venture wisely joining us live from Capitol Hill wandering the halls of Congress actually White House reporter Elena Trine Hello Elaine unwelcome. Hey having things for doing this. I WANNA go back to the summer when we were on the hill for axios on HBO interviewing members about impeachment back when there may be only a few dozen Democrats supporting it and it seemed like support had stalled at least the growth in the number of representatives backing it and remember what I said. Impeachment was inevitable and everybody thought I was crazy because I only thought that number would go up because there'd be new revelations will now. We feel like we're on the cusp of moving forward with it so tell me what changed approve me right. A lot of things have changed since we're on the hill together and now the numbers I for those who are in support of impeachment in majority of the caucus but in recent hours and the recent revelations with the president and his conversations with the Ukrainian in president the allegations are that he essentially pressure the Ukrainian president to investigate President Joe Biden and his son for corruption and had allegedly withheld aid in requesting that has really changed the dynamic here leadership including Speaker Pelosi who has been holding out really been the key figure keeping the rest of the caucus joining in supporting impeachment is now starting to lean towards the pointing at herself south walk us through like the last twenty four hours even the last like four hours since you've been awake this morning and started making what is it. What are you hearing kind of turning and this is something that a lot of people have said repeatedly that they hoped would happen? This Ukraine news has really made this a turning point and so behind. I understand speaker. Pelosi has been reaching out to key lawmakers leaders on the hill trying to gauge where they stand on this and there'd be to keep meetings on the hill today a day so the I will be a meeting with all of the committee chairman on the House Democrats size and then there'll be a four PM caucus meeting that Speaker Pelosi will lead and and it very well could be that after these meetings the speaker and some of the other leadership who have been more hesitant in saying that they support impeachment fully endorsed it right. That's a moment I'm feeling that's the most pregnant with possibility right that the Democrats will come out of this four. PM Meeting you'll be standing in the basement in the hallway with them and they're going to say as something which I think could be momentous right. Today could be buried big day in history. This could potentially set off really set that ball rolling toward a potential this show impeachment proceedings against the president. I think the key here that is still the big questions that I still have that in my conversation. I don't even think leadership has talked too much. Ahead on is where the Republicans coming on this that is really been what has been holding people back is how this plays politically and if they're going to move forward with this. Republicans and descended are not going to support this. What is the point in doing any of this but I think the key thing here now is public sentiment the key thing that has really been driving speaker Pelosi from coming out and supporting it. They think that public sentiment is now on their side especially because everything that's going on with Ukraine is happening in real time. Americans are seeing and really many of them are shocked shocked by some of these revelations. It's allowing them to make their case much quicker than they did. Say with some of the allegations in the Muller reports like the Republican looking point injuries and you stole my last question but of course they're not going to get enough. Republicans no matter what I suspect in the Senate but are there any Republicans around there who are getting wobbly who are sort of starting to hint that maybe maybe this is the one step too far and they'd be joined Democrats. We did see Senator Mitt Romney tweet over the weekend that if the allegations about the president of conversations with Ukraine's government are true that it would be extremely problematic because he didn't really go far saying he would support any sort of impeachment proceedings feedings but he did call them very concerning in trouble and there are also a lot of people that I'm looking at it and I'm hoping to maybe grab what the hell today are the Republican to have I've been dropping out all over the country in T- red districts. They're either retiring or just deciding going to run again in two thousand twenty and and those are the people that I think could maybe you know they really make a difference ahead of the election because they're still of course being congress before then and could potentially have an important voice voice in this process. I don't WanNa keep you from making the rounds on the hill anymore. Have Fun in the capital in this historic day. Thanks so much having me my final two after this with offices.

"Jam shot. Third base side. Longoria. Following Batur is. Got the ball throws. Broken-bat double by Matt atom? Five to three that would be the final score Martinez got to save. That is our the game. Right gaylon. Yeah. Congratulations say, I knew that. When I listened to it last me too. Yeah. Team. I know, but you know, was one of those, you know, it's funny. We talk about the shift and all that stuff you have to shift to damn baseball. You have to do you can't play without it and Adams's smart hitter. And as you saw we listened. He took the ball down the left field line in longoria couldn't get there. And that was the turning point in the game. Pretty good to bat from Adam some glad you got right. So congratulations. Thanks, a lot more to keep up the good work. All right. You just want one hundred bucks from the northern California Honda dealers. So I have a chance for tomorrow. Now, we're on an hour later tomorrow. It's nine to ten for us on our pregame tomorrow. So it probably about the same time. Tomorrow Gaylon have a good day. All right. That has Gaylon. He is our winner in our contest today bridge, Bank, bold and venture wisely. You know, be bold venture wisely. Bridge Bank is over there. Yesterday in Oakland saw John Thuan and Rebecca Dale Marie yesterday, and Alex DNC she'd owner Fred Voss but bridge Bank, and I can't thank as we get to the end of the season for their sponsorship and everyone who helps me with the show nations. And of course, original Joe's, and Marvin windows and doors and Terry's Zimmer resigned Mer Terry, I'm not sure how to pronounce your last name over there. Does a great job. So so many people will thank them over the next couple of weeks for what they do. But let's talk a little bit about what's going on in baseball. Because last night was one of those games five three in this one. The cardinals did beat the giants and came back and giants tied it up three three and had a good rally and put the bat on the ball against some guys who were throwing one hundred but the big bugaboo for the giants. And I've talked about the pitching and I feel comfortable about the pitching. And I said the mad over the break sometimes pitchers young pitchers. You have a great first year. Then the second year is not so great because the league catches up with you. And also you've thrown a lot of innings you got to come back and do it again. So there's always that caveat with pitching because they do have obviously three of the five that I'm talking about a relatively young people in the game of baseball and really young for Rodriguez and Suarez Tyson Ross or a couple of extras wouldn't hurt to have. As fall backs for the giants next year if they did tied up three three, but they struck out sixteen times and Andy Bagley. I don't know if you follow Andy on the athletic, and he's been on the show this for a number of years always very happy to have him on wrote an article two days ago. Maybe about the giants inability to hit the fastball maybe on Thursday. I think it came out. I think that was the day came out and they just don't hit the fastball. And that is the big issue 'cause today's game. That's all you get is a fastball, and they just are laid on the fastball. Some people say slider speed, bats. And that is something they're going to have to pick up next year because sixteenth strikeouts. Last night of the twenty twenty seven outs that they had. However, many out you having a game in a nine inning game. It's too much. You got to put the ball in play so sixteen strikeouts Garcia had four last night. Sean Slater had a couple each and the young players, but they're facing pitchers. And that is a story of baseball today who throw one hundred now today's game Wainwright's occur. Ball guy, Wainwright doesn't throw that big pitch again. So we'll see what the giants can do with him today. If you just joining us, we're only on till nine o'clock this morning nine oh five but Blanco and center panic at first longoria had a great game last night playing good ball here over the last month Crawford. Bats cleanup Pence in the lineup. We got so much to talk about him over the next two weeks. Shaw hanson. And I will talk about him in a second Garcia catching Rodriguez today, his childhood friend, Alan Hansen. Now, you wanna talk about someone who can turn a fastball around this guy can do it. And it's such a great teaching example, just watch the ball off. This guy's bat. This is what other teams do. And this is what I've been saying all year long the exit philosophy to the soft out the strikeouts. That's that's plagued the giants. Whether it's belt Crawford Posey out of care who it is. This guy turns a fastball around Alan Hansen. If they could just find a position for him that he could comfortably play and also hit right handed. If he could do a little better at that. And sometimes you have a guy like Hanson and truthfully for bocce you say, all right? I need them now in the fifth inning. And you put them in where you need him at that time to turn a fastball around and get you a base hit. And he's in for the rest of the game. But you wanna see what I'm talking about about hitting a fastball just watch Alan Hansen. This guy can turn a fastball around. And that's the whole issue for the giants. They gotta get an outfield. Doug is the only one the only one who's sort of guaranteed a job and he only had two weeks. So a complete outfield has got to happen for these guys next year. And that is exactly what the off season has got to be. They have got to do a complete outfield and how they get there is why we do the shows. But that is exactly what's to happen. We'll take a break. We'll come back. We have a call. We'll take that. And get you ready for baseball today. Right. After this talking baseball with mardi Laurie NPR, six eighty the sports. Introducing new.

"How this is going to end up Stratton I wouldn't count on him. And then you have, you know, Bumgarner obviously in the mix probably for next year to. So there's an issue? Yeah. And again, if if I had to prioritize right now as John said, and the other caller said, Nick. I would think about pitching now I really. Would because the young guys to have them. Go one sixty two August is the toughest month and you you know look at the scores that. Have been run up this week twenty. Four to. Five twenty one dodgers had twenty one you got eight what nine here was at eight last night I forget how many you know last night so, you get, to this point in August and you start getting hit. And that's that for. Me. That's the, dangerous part for the giants right now I just think the, main priorities replacing Cueto because, that's The year I mean he was unstoppable and they hit that's you, can't just find that anywhere well you need a guy who. Can be that kind of, got see the the young guys are, okay but you can't make them, the two, three four guys you know they're. The four five guys and I, think what we're seeing now just at least the last couple of days is with Suarez. And Henry Schulman pointed out, if you look. To, June two. Now he's now not quite the pitcher was, earlier in the year and I think. You're seeing a little bit of that, now so you don't want to. Push them into the top of the rotation which is what the giants have had to do this year so you'd, like to, see I'm just telling you a Mike fires you know the guy from Detroit you, know you can go out and. Pitch you want. Someone who's a veteran who could be in. The top of that rotation and not put. It on the kids so from answering the question Carmen priority pitching yeah just anybody anybody you can. Go five to six innings just the. Just the. Eat up innings like at the very least you know Yeah take the pressure take the pressure off time now. For today's bold decision the, week sponsored by bridge Bank be bold, venture wisely and for this one, Josh and, I had a scratch our heads. A little bit but it happened, last night and of course Stratton got into trouble and they got him out of there. And they brought in tie, block with the. Bases, loaded and. Nobody. Out of this the ball decision for, bocce was to bring in block in. That situation and this is what happened.

"Four for eight maybe he would. Penser, Posey with DA maybe Posey the, aging today is Pence is oh for. Three so that's sort of my prediction, on the lineup for the giants today if you're out in. The north beach area today absolutely I know it's a gorgeous day over in San Francisco, it will. Be in the afternoon you can go over to the US restaurant fourteen Columbus and Vallejo and, watch the game and, have lunch dinner sitting out on the. The sitting in the patio or. Of course on the tables Right outside the restaurant watching the people go by which is a great side of north beach. So it's great Cecilia food and the. Waiters are fun good wine list as well and. It just it's a nice place to. Be and. You got a really solid meal, so that's the. US restaurant four fourteen Columbus Columbus and Vallejo so it's open every day. Except Monday and it is a place that I. Know. The the locals love going there and it's got a. Long history great pictures there and.

"Capable, but now says the time is to sort of grind it out a little bit more and they've got to do that. They've got to get more than three over five hundred. They gotta get ten over five hundred and to do that. They've got to play good baseball in every part of the game. So that's part of what what we watch now as well. So I'm glad to mention a lot of these things and bridge Bank. If you're an entrepreneur, small business trying to get to that next level bridge Bank is the place to go. Of course, I Bank with them in Oakland and Sheetal is there and John and Rebecca, Antoine, and Fred Voss, and all the good people over there. But if you're a business trying to get to the next level and bridge Bank is a Bank that understands that, and it isn't easy Bank to work with. So I know there's so many new businesses or businesses sort of getting to that next spot in the bay area checkout bridge Bank that is absolutely a place to go to do that. So all right, we've got more coming up nice night for baseball. Here. We've got a score. Scoreboard to look at Bumgarner and k hill in this one. As I said these pictures have seen each other before. The giants have seen k- he'll be four eighteen times seven. And five with a three ninety seven earned run average if he's. Got the ball as Bruce said the ball moves all over. The place if he's got it down in the zone is tough to. Hit he has been, outstanding at home twenty eight innings seventeen hits two runs one Homer five walks in twenty. Nine strikeouts, for Bumgarner on the road it's been a little bit rockier for him four, point, six seven in, the three games but for Bumgarner he's. Starting to put it together his last five starts thirty two innings so figured more than six innings of start only, seven earned runs only two homers given up. And a one ninety five earned run average so this one has those makings of one of those games that you say three to four to three something like that and of course whenever. I. Say that, it ends up thirteen to eight so but I. Think. We're gonna see you A good baseball game tonight all right more coming up from. The Coliseum we've got a big big our to finish it up with you before we get to our, giants pregame and. We'll do that, when we come back talking baseball with.
