spread through coughing and sneezing directly on to someone concerning covert nineteen over the years scientists have worked on technologies to clear the air in the plane's fuselage when it comes to any airborne viruses but is being used I spoke to Washington post transportation reporter Michael Larisa about the solutions in the works and how quickly and aggressively the airline industry's moving to put possible safeguards in place out what can they do to address that problem about their floating around before it's taken out and and filtered and there's been some really quite interesting work done on on that front and at Purdue University professor I've seen one channel has has been working on this for years and one of the things that that he and then some folks from from Boeing actually have been working on is can you change the air circulation system in the airplane to make it less likely that you might get an infectious disease and and they've they've had some success in their labs at doing just that based on your conversations what do you gather as far as the amount of preparation and foresight into vigorously pursuing and implementing some of these technologies within the airline industry was there a kick the can down the road mentality or was there a sense of urgency and just too little time to get solutions in place now that we're in the middle of the pandemic well what some of the experts that I that I spoke with pointed to was was again the fact that way back in two thousand and three you had a major problem with sars and that was sort of a warning flag many years ago and what these experts argued was that in the intervening years the the the sort of response was not as aggressive as they thought might have been possible since late in those years people continue to study this they continue to try to understand the engineering but they did not sort of overhaul the way their planes are designed and again they point out that is not an easy thing to do it's not an easy thing to do to change the ventilation system on aircraft is the pressure on to really get something in place once we hope people are more comfortable able to fly to assure the public you've seen airlines take an approach even just this week use object Lou saying that they will require all passengers to wear masks starting on may fourth American Airlines said that they would stay are handing out face coverings on some flights but not all because they didn't have enough equipment so you're facing now a situation of how do you deal with the planes that are that are out there today the designs that are out there today and also deal with this virus that's looks like it's going to be with us for a while if people are going to need to fly some airlines are now saying okay you you must wear a mask but then again and it's an interesting thing here some airlines are not saying that so there isn't any sort of clear one answer from the industry was interesting the comment from the president of jet blue she said this is the new flying etiquette that means wearing a mask is the new flying etiquette and it certainly will be interesting to see S. if that's actually true again

madness I I think the the headline is it showed up on my app was a jury question is going to kill us all she writes when New York governor Andrew Cuomo said that the state would need thirty thousand ventilators at the apex of the outbreak Kushner decided the Cuomo is being alarmist echostar reportedly said quote I have all this data about ICU capacity I'm doing my own projections and I've gotten a lot smarter about this New York doesn't need all those ventilators and then this is what he said yesterday people have requests for different products and supplies a lot of my doing it based on

Bonnie prince Charles is probably another good example of that back you know three hundred years ago two hundred fifty years ago but you know he was he was a lousy student is Daddy bought him a seat

he said the day he had read a hold twenty five Bucks Michael cappello Michelle Goldberg notes the centrist Israeli policy forum says that Kushner's plan was quote the Monty python version of Israeli Palestinian peace and now he's making life or death decisions for all of us and then you know we get this quote from the times The New York Times Mr Kushner's early involvement with dealing with the virus was in advising the president that the media's coverage exaggerated the threat so what is the consequence of that well in desperation bit you know the consequence of Kushner telling trump you know new Yorkers just exaggerating this don't give them anything just ignore them this from ProPublica near service paid twenty cents for gloves that normally cost less than a nickel as much as seven

Sacramento county were from a church and turns out that that's true and the pastor in this church this is it's called the rivers of living waters church and the pastor is Dan Austrian I wouldn't call

secretary of state's office is mailing out absentee ballots to every single one of the states six point nine million registered voters I got a look this up and see if the Georgia secretary of state is a Democrat or Republican could probably get to that during the break at the bottom of the hour or if you know you know let me know because this has the Republicans really seriously upset it does state house speaker David Ralston Republican said this would be extremely devastating to Republicans and conservatives in Georgia every registered voter is going to get one of these ballots this will certainly drive up turnout because Donald Trump said you know well vote by mail he said you have levels of voting that if that if you ever agreed to it you'd never have a Republican elected in this

"Civilian complaint review board trial police officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric garner in twenty fourteen is going on, as you know, there was testimony that departmental investigators had looked into the death of garner shortly after he died, and concluded in January of twenty fifteen that officer Pantaleo should be brought up on disciplinary charges for using an illegal choke hold but it didn't happen. We you told about this recommendation at the time. Brian want to put this in the context, first of all the most important pieces of human piece that, you know what happened here was horrible. And the I know the garner family, I feel for them for mentally and the most important thing is to bring all of this to a conclusion with actual resolution and the central point here is the NYPD was ready to act from the beginning. The Justice department said to hold because the Justice department is pursuing the possibility of much greater charges. And this is really important for people to understand if the Justice department had said to the city of New York, go ahead. We would have moved with those departmental charges right away, and there would have been due process and that would have been outcome. But that is about those charges would have been about employment, not about the higher issues that the Justice department is considering, and finally, only in recent months that we ever get a message from the Justice department that they no longer were asking us. To hold off which Brian really reflects the fact that after all these years of Justice department has still not decided if they're bringing charges not. And that's something that has to be questioned every other major case anything like this. The Justice department made a decision upper down of whether they going to pursue charges. Did you know at the time that the departmental investigation had concluded that disciplinary charges regarding the legal? Choko. I want to be careful on the specifics because I wanna make sure I'm always accurate. What I knew was a department was ready to proceed. As soon as the Justice department said that there was no longer a conflict. That's the bottom line, should the NYPD charging Pantaleo today, rather than the non-binding? Yeah. I think the process is proceeding now is the right process. It will be resolved this year, and, and there will be due process, and that's important for everyone involved. But this is finally from the New York City point of view. This is finally going to be addressed now. I wish we had done right away, but we had a higher authority telling us not to and that higher authority that could bring much more serious charges had they sought to do so, and that's really getting, I think, under discussed here, Brian, this is I don't know what kind of accountability structure there needs to be going forward to ensure that, if the Justice department is telling any local jurisdiction not to proceed, and that obligates just as far to make its own decision timely basis. Not do it here would be questions for people from the Justice department the questions for you are. Why isn't the department rather than the be charging Pantaleo? And I'll, I'll add one other when they come up with the recommendations who will have the final say, we'll user of the right to overrule the police Commissioner. If he doesn't take action that you think is necessary Brian, I'm not gonna go into do process situation. It's just not right to predict or project on that CCR be. I'm someone who was working in city hall when the CRV was established, the C R B is there to provide a very important independent presence. I think they're handling the situation. Exactly right. And again when the process is concluded the ultimate recommendations will go the police Commissioner. Let's let that due process play out over these coming weeks, again, this issue will be resolved this year. But then I when this issues resolved here, whatever the resolution, I really hope people will once again, turn to where the original power in this situation, resided, and demand of the Justice department that they make decision because, again, to this hour, they still have not. But you'd want to say one way or the other. Whether you're going to respect the final disciplinary decision if any from the police Commissioner. Or if you wanna publicly reserve the right to overrule him, Brian. That's, that's not responsible for a mayor or to intervene in a due process situation. Just does not make sense. Let's let this. It's due process for reason. Everyone has rights here. See Srb I think is handling things properly. Let's let it play out. I wanted to ask you about the New York Times investigation into the taxi medallion class. And how lenders manipulated immigrant filers into loans that the lenders apparently knew too much risk. Give me a minute to lay this out, especially for listeners who may not have read those very long stories in the times. One of the articles says New York City in particular fail. The taxi industry to former mayor's Giuliani and Bloomberg place, political allies inside the taxi, and limousine commission and directed it to sell medallions to help them, balanced budgets, and fund city authorities. It says, mayor Bill de Blasio continued the policies under Bloomberg and de Blasio the city made more than eight hundred fifty five million dollars by selling taxi medallions and collecting taxes on private sales. That's I'm stopping. That's just not accurate. We didn't continue policy let you continue narrative, but I have to flag, that's just not accurate. Is that is a direct quote from the times article? So do you want to dispute that respect I do? I want to respect that article was very impressive. Piece of journalism raised important issues that we're working on and acting on right now. But in fact, it was the first budget that we passed when I came into office was in the first six months of my term, and we at that point saw a market, that seemed to support additional medallion sales. Once we did that in the first month administration. We quickly came to the conclusion thereafter that it did not make sense to sell more medallions, and we reverse the policy of the Bloomberg and Giuliani administration. We have not sold any medallion since so it's just not right to suggest, there was a continuity after the first six months in office. We decided to do something very different. And the article did know that, that sale took place in February of two thousand fourteen which was just your second month in office. So are you saying that it took? That long to get up to speed on that. And then as quickly as you did you cancel that process. We know the beginning of administration, it appeared, there was still a strong market and from my point of view. It was look the real thing to remember here is what we knew at the time was that lots of everyday hardworking people were purchasing medallions just the way folks. For example, purchase a house as an investment, a lot of families saw the purchaser medallion as a way to get some financial stability to own something and something they could borrow off in the future. And that situation appear to be working, there are lots of things that changed, let me jump in on, on that point, because the article does say that by then February twenty fourteen concerns about medallion prices were common in the news media, and government offices. And so you would have known according to the times. Again, common is not the same as conclusive at that point. It's still appeared that a system that was benefiting. A lot of hardworking people was functioning. It was soon thereafter that became clear that something was wrong. And again, many different market, forces and other factors that led us to feel like it did not make sense to go on any further medallion sales. And we haven't sold any sense what I tried to do the next year was dressed, another PC equation, which was the proliferation of Uber and lift and the other vehicles that were creating a huge problem for the taxi drivers. And also for congestion as you remember rather dramatically I tried to get a Bill passed in the city council. It looked like the city council was an agreement until the very last moment when they pulled back we got a variation on that same legislation finally passed last year, and I wanna commend speaker Johnson for that. It was an important action. I wish it had happened three years earlier. I wish the council had been willing to follow through then, but no, I think it's really important to recognize twenty four. Eighteen a lot of the problems started to become clear, and that was both in terms of stopping the medallion sales, and in terms of the need to limit the growth of the four hire vehicles, so that it wouldn't undermine the good reality of our yellow cab industry, which so many working New Yorkers depend on. And lastly on this, and your answer, just now, maybe your answer to this, too. I don't know but I wanted to ask you about campaign donors because the time says that the Blasios administrations only major response to the crisis has been to push for a cap on right? Hail, 'cause it says taxing industry veterans said the cap did not address the cause of the crisis, the lending practices, and the times notes that taxi industry lobbyists. Michael willows was a top fundraiser for your mayoral campaign in two thousand thirteen and we've seen in campaign, finance board records that executives from the credit unions that wrote the bad loans to drivers personally donated over twenty five thousand dollars. To your campaign. So here's a case of people with business interests with the city donating to your campaigns as several regulators were issuing warnings and say they were ignored because of the industry's connections to government false. It's fall in the O'Brien. I, I expect you every time to raise concerns. If you see a donation, but I can't tell you enough times. Okay. Telling you, we make decisions based on the merits. The fact that somebody gives notation does not have a bearing on what we decide is good policy when we came in it's still appeared. There was the ability to have a strong medallion sale, which was good for folks who are trying to get that opportunity for themselves and their families. It was obviously good for revenue as well. But we decided quickly thereafter that revenue or not, it was not a good practice to continue. We stopped them and sales we immediately tried to address the four vehicle problem and the proliferation. And by the way, the things I said in twenty fifteen about congestion about the. Negative impact. It was having on working people all proved to be true. And there was a lot of criticism. You'll remember at the time Brian, but the, the legislation I tried to pass twenty fifteen turned out to be the thing that would have actually helped us a lot, right? Then we finally got in two thousand eighteen as to the information, there's some really important information in this times article about the lending practices. Obviously, we did not know a lot of the details of this, and some of it's only coming out. Now, what I want to be clear about is the direct direct regulation of the lenders is federal and state not city where the city can have an impact is on the brokers. We're doing forty five day review tax limousine commission department of finance consumer fairs looking at these lending processes, based on some of the information came out of that article, and we are going to be able to bring very powerful penalties to bear on any of the brokers who have in any way, abused the drivers and the folks in the industry that includes heavy. Financial penalties. But more importantly, if we find broker who has done something, particularly egregious, we can revoke their licence..
