A Pandemic Winner: How Zoom Beat Tech Giants To Dominate Video Chat
"Roughly one year ago. I heard colleagues referred to a meeting on zoom. It was one of those passing references where people assume you already know what they mean. But i didn't. I literally never heard of the brand within a few days. Of course i knew as did millions of others who likely had not known before. Zoom is by no means the only way for a video meeting but the company has come out ahead during the pandemic zoom is among npr's financial supporters. And we cover it like any other company. Npr's shannon bond has the company's pandemic story chief financial officer kelly steckel berg vividly remembers one specific date. Last spring march fifteenth. Last year was the day when everything changed. Its like we woke up and almost overnight that demand grew exponential demand from companies. Trying to keep running after sending everybody home. School setting up virtual classrooms then. The floodgates opened here at npr weeded stories about fitness classes. Moving to zoom. You're going to need a broom towel. Happy hours complete with drinking games. We figured out rules for virtual beer. Pong one of our producers watched her sister get married over zoom. You may now feel your ballot. Chests by april zoom meetings were attracting three hundred million participants a day thirty times the amount just a few months before zoom was an upstart and it was going up against products from giants like google and microsoft which are both npr supporters. So how did zoom beat these heavyweights real richness to simply way easier. Jason freed is ceo of base camp. A company that makes remote work software. He told me over his preferred app. Skype he's been working remotely for two decades. He says zoom made sending a meeting link as easy as sharing a youtube video open room. You get a you moral you. Send the url around people. That's it unlike. Other video meetings people you invite to zoom. don't have to log in or download. Software freed says that simplicity meant even though. The app was intended for companies. It was really easy for everyone else to use to but zoom was so popular and convenient. It had a downside. The fbi warning about zoom bombing intruders has started crashing zoom meetings because security was so lax townhall school classes. Aa meetings. were all targets. Dennis johnson knows all about this last march. He was defending his doctoral. Dissertation on zoom in front of family and friends with an unknown attacker scrawled racial slurs genitalia on the screen. A year later johnson still avoid zoom when he can every time. Somebody called me. Dr arteaga On so it just like a nasty taste in my mouth. Researchers uncovered other security and privacy flaws zoom told users meetings were fully encrypted when they weren't the company admitted shut down the accounts of activists in china after pressure from the government. Zoom went into damage control mode. It put everything except privacy insecurity on pause for three months and it reached settlements with federal and state regulators investigating the issues. Stucco burg's zoom. Cfo says the episode was a wakeup call. It was a humbling experience for all of us but we learned a lot through it and we have come out on the other side at a stronger a better company with a stronger and more secure platform now. After a year of daily life and major milestones conducted over zoom what happens when people get vaccinated and can go back to seeing each other face to face. Daniel ives as an analyst at wedbush securities there could be a roaring twenties type field. Whose covid where people are just gonna wanna get out and just almost a pent up demand but he says zoom has made such inroads into our lives in the past year. It's here to stay so they're still time to learn how to use the mute button

Correspondents and producers you know i would do live shots from this bedroom But when it was time anchor my own program. I'd be in the studio the exceptions to that. Of course our chris cuomo And a number of other times or they were cova scares or people had reasons to work from home But but you know it's if you can be in a studio and you are hard wired into the control room and you are hardwired into cnn. Master control that is the most reliable way to keep a network on the air and that was certainly the goal. But to your point you know. I remember for me. I think about in terms of weeks so like march. I was the last time. I shook anybody's hand on. Tv and it felt a little weird even on march. I you and then on march eighth we wondered. Are we supposed to so far away. From each other and then on march fifteenth we did and then on march twenty second. No more guests. Nobody in the studio me all alone. March twenty ninth. No studio at all just me in a closet We have these things and most networks version of this at cnn. We call it a flash cam other networks. Call these different by different names. But they are these. You know Big closet sized studios just you and robotic camera. And that's where. I've been working ever since last march and for the most part of you look on cnn once in a while you'll see folks are on a on a studio set But not very not very often. I actually think the sports networks have have gone further in terms of getting folks back you know in studio. There's a little bit less reason for news networks to do it. I think even the sport you know. I think of Tnt inside the nba with ernie johnson and charles barkley shack they have they have plexiglass now in between the months. Say right but it's amazing. How little of that took a while. Because we didn't know what to do at for we just didn't know march eleventh. Is that turning point. People forget that president trump addressed the nation that night and sadly he kind of made things worse he he flubbed some words and he didn't he didn't really convey the gravity the situation it instead. It was actually president. Hangs it was tom. Hanks that i think underscore the gravity of the situation rush and remember. He was in australia remember..

Does that happen to you know because football is my is my full time job so at this point of this season you know i love football right and i'm sad when it's not on tv. I love to watch football.

Congress Didn’t Include State And Local Aid In Stimulus package
"That stripped down relief. Bill we thought was going to pass left out aid for state and local. Governments states are now fighting each other over. Which should be able to collect income taxes for the hundreds of thousands of remote workers who used to commute across state lines from the workplace culture desk. Marketplace's megan mccarthy carino has that one before the pandemic dave hausky commuted everyday between his new jersey home into work at an architecture. Firm in manhattan. I ride my folding bike to the ferry. And then i take a theory across. He also has to file taxes in both places. New york is one of seven states which tax workers based on their physical office is located new jersey normally refunds the more than one billion dollars paid by residents like miron hausky who have to pay taxes to new york but this year is different than it was march fifteenth when my office close to new jersey and about a dozen states are bringing the legal question to the supreme court to try to stop states from taxing workers who never step foot in the office. This becomes a serious problem. If remote work becomes a long term phenomenon as it probably will jared wall sack with tax foundation says while states have had agreements to avoid double taxing workers. That could change if your home state decides that you truly are both living and working in their state than they might still tax you especially as state struggle to make a drop in other tax revenues due to the pandemic says lewis shiner with the brookings institution. Clearly there's some hain things like parking tolls and gas taxes and drops in tourism and sales taxes. All that's pushed state revenues down an average of five percent so every last tax dollar counts. I megan mccurdy carino for marketplace.
The Energy Sector in 2020 and Beyond
"Full answers. I'm also southwick. And i'm joined by robert. Brough ho ho bro. Camp personal finance expert here at the motley fool. That didn't work out at all seasons. Greetings to you all in this week's episode. It's part three of our year end. Investing series with the help of industry focuses nick cycle. We're gonna dig into the energy sector yet. It puns all that and more on this week's episode of multiple answers bro. What's up well also by the laws of personal finance multimedia. I am obliged at this time of year to offer a few year end financial planning tips. So i'm going to say you heard every year a there are a few that are unique to twenty twenty and boy. It's been a unique year so here are some ways to make the most of this interesting year. I have five number one. Max out employer's sponsored account so actually have until april fifteenth of next year to make twenty twenty contribution to an ira but the deadline for make for most employer sponsored accounts like 401k's and four. Three bs is december thirty first. So if you haven't yet maxed out the account if you have a little money lying around you still have a little bit of time. But you generally can't wait until the last day of the month for most employers you have to change your rate of contribution a few days before the final payroll of the year just an example the motley fool. If you want to max out your account this year you have until december tenth before four pm to do it but of course your job will be different so talked your hr department the bottom line here. Is that most 401k. Plans or at least many. Don't actually allow you. Just send a check you have to do it through the payroll just as a reminder of the contribution limits in two thousand twenty for most employer sponsored retirement accounts it's nineteen thousand five hundred with an additional sixty five hundred fifty or older by december. Thirty first for ira's six thousand dollars with an additional one thousand for the fifty in better crowd and those limits are not changing and twenty twenty one or staying the same that said income thresholds and being able to contribute to a roth or whether your contributions to a traditional ira deductible those will change so check those out if you're going to contribute to an ira twenty one number to make a corona virus related distribution from your employer account if possible so thanks to the cares act that was passed in march employers who have experienced certain health or financial related hardships due to the coronavirus can withdraw up to one hundred thousand dollars combined from their retirement accounts. Avoid the ten percent early distribution penalty. If they're not yet fifty nine half though you still taxes the good news is you have up to three years to return the money and it doesn't have to go back into the account from which it came. We've mentioned this a few times this year. This actually provides an opportunity for people who are in mediocre or worse employer plans to move the money to an ira however this option is only possible. this year in the deadline is actually december thirtieth. Not thirty first. So if you're intrigued. Sure to visit the irs website to make sure that you fit the criteria for making one of these rotavirus related distributions number three convert traditional to roth assets so you have to december thirty first to do a conversion for this year. This year is a particularly good one to consider a roth. Tax rates are historically low and income has dropped for many americans course you pay taxes on the convert amounts but then the money grows tax. Free as long as you follow. The rules of this is also a good year for americans over the age of seventy. Who want to do convergence. Normally you have to take your required minimum distribution from a traditional account first and then do the conversion no conversions do not count towards the required minimum distribution. But all our. Md's have been suspended for this year. So you can convert at will just remember that ever since the tax overhaul that passed in two thousand seventeen conversions could can no longer be undone by something known as a re characterization so only do a conversion if you're sure that it makes sense number four spend money remaining in flexible spending accounts depending on your employer's plan you have until december thirty first to spend the money in a dependent care or medical flexible spending plan. Some plans do have different deadlines some allow for extended grace period's up to maybe march fifteenth and for the medical account. Some plans allow you to roll up to five hundred and fifty dollars to two thousand twenty one. That's up from last year's five hundred dollar carryover amount also thanks to the cares act. The items that qualify for your medical flexible spending account have been greatly expanded visit. Fsa store dot com to see what's eligible and again reach out to your hr department to find out the deadlines for your plan and finally number. Five deduct charitable cash contributions. once again. Thanks to the cares act. Taxpayers can deduct up to three hundred dollars in cash contributions to call charities without having to itemize their tax returns. Make sure you visit the website for more info and it also has a searchable database to find which which organizations qualify
1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens
"So my episode today. is about the nineteen eighty Mount Saint Helens eruption. So now, we weren't alive then even though we were not alive, then it was you know years until Jillian. Many years. Until we were born. We are in our. Mid Twenty. S. So we're very youthful. Yeah. We say what's a CD or whatever I don't know anything I couldn't even pretend to be a teenager because I have no idea went technology. Don T TIKTOK ON THE TIKTOK You know on the TIKTOK so. Nineteen Eighty Mount Saint Helens eruption has a lot of parallels to what's going on in the world today, but it's an interesting story. So to to start with for our non US friends and Non West Coast friends, I didn't know the details about this when I started researching it but Mount Saint Helen's which is known as a lot lot to the indigenous lets people and Lou wit. Luella cloud to the click a tat is an active stretch of Okano located in. Skamania. County. Washington in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States I. Apologize to the Washingtonians. If I pronounced Skamania county your Skamania county incorrectly. I'm sure I will get an email about this. Fifty miles eighty kilometers northeast of Portland Oregon Ninety, six miles or one hundred and fifty four kilometers south of Seattle Washington. So to get a sense of where Mount Saint Helen's is. If you're thinking of both Washington state and Oregon is roughly like. Square ish rectangular ish in shape with Washington, in the north and Oregon just below. Mount Saint Helen's is in the lower left quadrant of Washington state near the border of Oregon. and. She's roughly halfway between Portland, and the Portland Oregon and Olympia Washington, which is the Washington state capital. Okay. also relevant northeast of Mount. Saint Helen's is what's called Spirit Lake. And there's a bunch of little rivers and creeks in that area just due to like the geology of the area but almost directly north of the mountain is the north fork toodle river. River toodle or Poudel T. O. U. T.. L. E. Title River. So. Also? Mount Saint. Helen's takes its English name from the British diplomats. Lowered Saint Helen's is a friend of explorer George Vancouver who made a survey of the area in the late eighteenth century The volcano is located in the cascade range is part of the cascade volcanic arc, which is a segment of the Pacific Ring of fire that includes over one hundred and sixty active volcanoes and for the record before the explosion mount. Saint, Helen's stood at nine, thousand, six, hundred and eighty feet high. So. They knew it was part of the ring of the ring of Fire Okay Yeah Yeah So. They knew as part of the ring of fire. It had experienced some activity throughout recorded history but it. It remained dormant basically from its last period of activity in the eighteen, Forty S and eighteen fifties. So by one thousand, nine hundred had been more than one hundred years before there was any like really significant activity that includes ash like little burps and like any kind of flow or anything like that. So. At this point people were pretty complacent thinking nothing's going to happen anytime soon it's fine like it's a dormant volcano for all intents and purposes until we get to the spring of nineteen eighty. Okay. So, there were several small earthquakes beginning on March fifteenth of that year indicating that magma may have begun moving below the volcano also just as an f. y. we talked about natural disasters on episode sixty one which was called here I am rock. You like a hurricane I talked a little bit about that about volcanoes in that episode. So if you want to refresh your memory about the basics of what's in a volcano check that out episode sixty one, it's very good. Thank you. So on March Twentieth Three Forty Five PM Pacific Standard Time, which everything will be NPS T. Shallow magnitude four point two earthquake centered below the volcano's north flank signal the volcanoes return from one hundred, twenty three years of hibernation. A gradually building earthquake swarm saturated area seismographs, and started to climax at about noon on March twenty fifth reaching peak levels in the next two days including an earthquake registering five point one on the Richter scale. A total of one hundred and seventy four shocks of magnitude. Two point six greater were recorded during those two days. That's a lot. Yeah. So geologists in that area are like look is no not a great sign. Initially. There was no direct sign of eruption but small earthquake induced avalanches of snow and ice were reported from aerial observations. So this mountain is shaking and you know stuff is falling off. It's not it's not nothing. At twelve thirty, six PM on March twenty seventh phreatic eruptions which are explosions of steam caused by magma suddenly heating groundwater. So that's like a quick like spur. Of, like Ash and Steam K ejected and smashed rock from within the old summit crater. Excavating a new crater, two, hundred and fifty feet wide. And sending an ass column about seven thousand feet into the air. So you yeah, knock. Great. So by this date along, east trending fracture system had also developed across the summit area. So there's cracks forming in the summit. This was followed by more earthquake swarms in a series of explosions that said ash even higher above there. And most of this ash fell between three and twelve miles from its fendt. But some was carried hundred fifty miles south to bend Oregon or two hundred and eighty five miles east to spokane Washington. So the ash went pretty far and those who were like what the What is happening here? So? then. A second new crater and a blue flame were observed on March twenty ninth.
Coronavirus Impact on the Food Industry: Cameron Mitchell Restaurants CEO
"Joining us right now on the topic of small business and what he's seeing is Cameron Mitchell. He's the founder and CEO of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, which owns nearly sixty establishments across the United States and Cameron. It's great to see you. It's been a while since we've spoken good morning break plagiary back with you today. So. The first time we talked to you was in the midst of the shutdown when all of your restaurants had been closed down and you laid out a plan for what you were hoping to see. Two weeks ago on March third, I was in Washington DC to meet with my bankers and I expressed them what a great start year we had were up seven percent same store sales record profitability for the first two months of the year. This was March third tomorrow I believe March Eighteenth we will be completely shut down I laid off forty, two hundred people on Monday. The last time we talked to you things we're looking pretty good business was was back and was booming. I think we're going to survive, but it's going to be a while before we get to the hospital we expect to be open in hopefully back to full employment by the end of June or into or end of July somewhere in that neighborhood. So what's happening right now? The best way equate it to is we're in a hurricane in the first. Landfall, the hurricane was back in March fifteenth and. It was is detrimental as it was terrible. It's was We end up getting the money and we're able to get out and get open and it was a lifeline. We would not be here today if it wasn't for the original P P P loan and June came and sales, we're doing pretty good. We're about seventy five percent of last year sales were feeling very optimistic and and when I came to realize is we are really just in the eye of the storm and then July the beginning July head and and the case counts rising. Across the country and met, metropolitan. Areas Rolling back opening guidelines and in further restrictions on our business and sales fell down to now fifty percent of last year and that is just not sustainable. So here we are today you know August second and I feel just as nervous about the future as I did back in the beginning of March when Corona virus was coming over the horizon. So we're looking for a second round of P P P to help us get through the other side and and help us sustain for the future so. And the thing that we're hearing mostly Congress is about the stimulus checks, the unemployment but there are thousands and thousands of businesses like ours out there in the country they're hurting terribly at fifty percent decline a forty percent decline sales we cannot survive. We're losing between five, hundred thousand and a million dollars a month, and we need the additional P P P dolorous in a in a terrible way and you know the the curb puzzle is for a two million dollar cap on that which. last time was ten million dollars and so for a company like ours and many others that reduction of eight million dollars just when we need it, the most is is very difficult for us. Camera now is the decline in your business coming mostly because states or local municipalities have have forced you to not open as much into close things down or much of the decline is coming from people who Are, afraid to go out what and how would you measure that a difference while it's both clearly when you have a reduction in capacity from use spell. Example Beverly Hills we were closed all restaurants California closed for indoor. New York City we were not allowed to open our whole restaurant that was just for the Patio Philadelphia. We're not allowed to open that was got rolled back from August I now to September first. So some of our businesses are not even open yet So but the main driver of that reduction of sales is the increase case cow corona virus around the country and people becoming more and more nervous about going to restaurants even though there's no science dates that that says inherently restaurants, Kobe case outbreaks, her Dr Been Driven by restaurants seating. Indoor and outdoor see. Cameron. What? What are you doing in terms of your relationship with your landlords? particularly in some of those places, the restaurants haven't even reopened yet. Are you getting any forgiveness or any easing of things from them? Well, that's the thing becky you know we had almost all of our landlords help out in some way or another not all but some or most they should say, but that money is just a simple deferral that's So we have an additional three, million dollars we got deferred in. April May and June but that money has to be paid back over various schedules over the next two years. That's just additional debt on the balance sheet, and we come out of this without P P p. one of the things cameras restaurants we built three or four restaurants a year, and if we're saddled with millions of dollars debt if and when we get out of this I don't see a building an aiding the economic rebound in the country in Twenty One and twenty two point further were saddled with all this debt. What have you heard from the the senators you've spoken with on this? I've spoken. Personally to both are centers in the state of Ohio and. They understand our plate and and but I, think they're. All. The negotiation right now over the six hundred, a week stimulus for unemployment benefits. So I don't think it's getting much attention that it needs right now and I hope by the time we get this bill and some sort of agreement between both parties on this bill that we can get this P P P round two stimulus, which has one hundred and ninety billion dollars earmarked for it, which should be more than enough for these companies passed the stress test that show they actually needed. To keep with the original PCP levels P P one camera I want to thank you for the update We we have to check in with you again soon, but we appreciate your time and wish you good
Oysters, Clambakes and Grilling Run Amok
"Omar welcome to milk street. Thank you, thank you for having me It's great to have you Let's talk about your popup dinners. A called honeysuckle. Could you just describe what you serve and what the pop ups are like? The honeysuckle. It's a concept that uses food as the nucleus to explore various ideas of nuances of blackness in America specifically. And I say America specifically because. Black people in this country have. Quite quite quite the hurdle in our search identity in that many of us can't trace back our heritage. More than two grandparents ago and what a what tends to happen at least in my experience as a bike person, this country is that. People will ask me. Hey, where are you from? What is your nationality? But if I tell them that I'm just a black person, from Philadelphia, and that I'm American. That's kind of where the conversation stops. You know Africans and West Indians have a heritage. They have a flag Michael. tweet talks a lot about having a flag and his book, the cooking teen and having a flag like if you point towards the flag of Jamaica. What do you think of food? Wise? You think of oxtail. You think of rice and peas when you tell someone that you're an African American, most people only ever associate that with pain and then stereotypes. Under the American flag. So honeysuckle to me is. ME. Generating a flag for myself. It's not it's not just pain. Pain is pain as always there, but there were plenty of joys as well. You write poetry and you were to poem. Call folger's which. I of read fifteen times since I. So, could you just read that? Because I I'm not gonNA. Read your poem. You're GonNa have to read your. Sure folders soldiers is is one of my favorite ones I don't write love. poems often, but. Can we have coffee. I mean like really. Can we put down our words and swallow our breasts and hints of Cocoa Cinnamon and clove. Can I stare into your Brown eyes while the do of God washes over your face by our window next to the lips. Disturbs spoons course in our hearts, just black. Don't sugar neither. Only you and silk from Madrid to toews. FRIZZ, baby hairs and a t shirt. That now belongs to us. Can we have it until it's done. Can we fill our empty coffee bean with Greece Double Fryer chicken forever? Fabulous, Really I'm really glad that you like that bomb. Could you just? Explain a little bit about it. Yeah, But I'm not sure if you remember the commercial, the best part of waking up as folger's in your cup. And people who are in a relationship, the person that you love is the best part of Waking Up. When you when you wake up and you, you see that person next to you. and so in this in this poem, the car the coffee the STIMULI IS IS PARTNER You've had a very successful career. You ended up doing these pop ups. Something really believed in now. You're essentially back home. In Philadelphia you say there isn't much in my room, but a mattress leaning Bookshelf Eucalyptus plant that I found in a public flowerpot. It's Blue Gray and brings joy when the days are down so. What happens next you know? I, wrote the and I know soundly somber I think. The the communist comes from everything coming to a screeching halt, it was huge full. Stop at around March fifteenth when when I moved to Philadelphia, but all the. Things that I was doing prior to this pandemic. Was All leading me back to Philadelphia, and so I'm I'm in the place where I'm supposed to be. What's next is what I WANNA do is open. honeysuckle here the art that I do create. Speaks to the African American community and I would like to spread that over several different. Avenues such as a grocer, a coffee space, and still do dinners, but have it be a community center. The idea in the past was to open honeysuckle downtown, but What I want to do now is bring down to hood like that's. I would love to see the economy spread outward into into the pockets of those who need it. If you look forward five or ten years. In take a best case scenario. What would you like to see happen as a result of what we're going through now? What would be the best case for you? In terms of community or the way people think about food and culture. Restaurants were never about food. And I think that people. Don't understand that restaurants were always about people people I that needed food. So if we can. Start looking at that again. Everything else will fall into
Former Player and Agent Donald Dell
"Everyone John Wartime here is this week's sports illustrated? Tennis podcast is also the first week of Wimbledon. He says wistfully our guest this week. Is Donald Dell? Donald is a former player a promoter broadcaster at agent. He's worn many hats, not unlike Bartholomew Cubans. He is also worn many at once. Donald is still force in tennis. He wrote an op Ed recently in the Washington Post, about the prospect of combining the men's and women's tours, so we talk about that. We talked about where tennis is right now, and as a bonus, Donald signed Michael Jordan out of North Carolina and especially after last dance. We talk about Michael Jordan so some non tennis bonus coverage on Michael Jordan and a lot of good tennis. Talk here's Donald Dell. Appreciate you doing. How are you doing? I'm doing fine We've been lucky I've been home since about March fifteenth, but my two daughters, their husbands, and our two grandchildren, five and seven are about thirty yards from where we are, and it's like one hundred twenty day thanksgiving. It doesn't sound bad. Yeah, let's I I. Don't know but I got a couple of things to bring up. I. Did want to talk about the the op-ed you wrote. Wrote thought you'd be a good person to talk about with the the tour merger, which has been eclipsed lately by a Co bit in the US Open, but this was sort of a hot topic, and everyone says the same thing which is great idea. The devils in the details, so let's let's advance that. How do we exercise those those devils details? How do we push through? So this becomes more than. In abstract idea that we need to negotiate what what are we doing to make this happen? Well I I think I think more than that. The Devil Devil's in the the leadership in other words I think it's GonNa take strong leaders it both part, both groups to get done, and I think Steve. Simon, and Mickey Lawler. Are Really, veterans, and and well respected, and well like Gatanzi the new chairman of the ATP I'm told his very smart very capable. And I. Think if the if they wanted to really do it, they get together. And then it takes a lot of support. You Know Billie, Jean and Roger, and some of the leaders in the game. All got behind it, then you. It's sort of like all the protests out there today you gotTa. You gotta move the ships and it's a big alphabet soup that everybody sort of fights for their turf. The ATP tour. Has Really established itself, but it's not part of the grand. Slams not far the idea. And not that that they want to be I don't Miss Other Sami, but I just think. Recently in the last six or eight years, the ATP tour has not worked very effectively in some senses because they've been voting in blocks the three tournament directors vote together. The three player reps vote together, and then the chairman's left. There was hanging vote and literally one vote because he always makes one side unhappy in the last two chairman. If you review John have been fired. Because one group didn't like how voted, and they need a super majority of forty two to extend. His contract so his contract ran out. In the last two cases now I'm told by people that very close to respect the Gal Gal Danzi is quite a different. Person needs a very strong leader, very smart and media and he really gets it. I just think for the sport It would be really helpful to have the two groups. Merged on a on a simple basis, and the when you talk about the details, you're right but I think the simplicity is what matters keep it simple stupid when you want to merge the to start with you don't have to have exactly the same boards, the same voting members, but come in and merge it, and have you know five or six basic principles and truthfully. We, found out in Washington with the city open that Iran for fifty years literally for the WTI ESPN Tennis Foundation. That We. We had a men's only event for forty two years, and then city came along our title sponsor, and rightfully said look fifty one percent of our clients. Bankers are women, so we're not gonNA. Unless you'll bring a women's tournament into it and we did, but it was a problem because there's a bigger women's event at Sanford for seven hundred thousand, we were only allowed by the rules for two fifty, but guess what. The ATP the minority of the ATP ten percent fought it tooth and nail. They didn't want it integrated tournament. And I to go before the board three different times, and swear up and down that we give him favorability on the scheduling of the Center Court. Scheduling, transportation scheduling practice courts. And it just didn't. It's working okay. And the women, the best women like to play Washington but now under the new WTA rules. We can only sign one of the top twenty in the world in order to protect the other event. That's raising more prize money by seven hundred or more, so those kind of problems out to be worked out and the ATP tour really needs to get a stronger with this membership the the the vocal minority, which is really only about ten or twelve percent, and it's always the complainers on the tour. The to aboard knows who they are, and they're always ranked between one hundred, fifty and three hundred,

Adam Hirsch and Priscila Andrade are the owners of Exodus bagels.

Their biggest cause for alarm was that they were fresh out of diapers for their baby mirror on Monday march ninth. The World Health Organization held a news conference about the outbreak. Most countries still have sporadic cases. We must all take heart from that. That director general sounded measured. The bottom line is. We're not at the mercy of the bias. In early March the coronavirus pandemic that was unfolding and China and spreading across Europe still felt like international news. It was happening far away and then suddenly. It wasn't Wednesday march eleventh the. Who declares the coronavirus outbreak a global? Pandemic W Joel has been assisting this outbreak around the clock and we're deeply concerned.

This is our executive producer. Caitlin Kelleher I heard somebody describe it as like a never ending ticker tape of gloomy numbers and that really resonated for me. It's like the magnitude and the scale of the numbers is really hard to hold in your mind. And then when he comes to the restaurant industry specifically the numbers there are huge and they're really bleak. I saw one industry survey that said eight million restaurant.
