And by the way, as we discovered yesterday, you have no intention of changing the rules on any of this, even if they comply and go forward and do what you want them to do. That's probably the stupidest thing of all this. These idiots who are now saying, Hey, everybody, get the vaccine. Everybody can If you're 16 and over, get it. Anyone can get it.

Who are saying the same thing is adults. We're not really convinced we needed or wanted. Oh, pops, the academic and scientific and media community. What do you mean? You're not sure you needed or wanted? Well Oh, Well, here's the thing we know. After a year of living through this that most of us aren't going to get terribly sick, and even if we do, we're not going to die. We also know that if we take it, you have no intention of loosening restrictions on us. You continue to want to make us wear masks and Social distance between one another and You still keep restaurants and the stupid rules and capacity limits and Funerals and Wedding. Like why? What's What's our incentive? I mean, at least incentivize it. You know, why was incentivizing people now? Those Amazon. I ran into a kid yesterday. Who told me Amazon, the distribution facility, one of them. Any way that I know of is 75 bucks a shot. 75 bucks for shot 1 75 bucks for shot two in your next check If you get it, Wa wa same deal A. I think. He was 50 bucks per shot or something like that. You get cash incentive if you get it. What if Our corporate Ownership group Salem Media Group fast, Eddie said. I'll give you $1000 to take the shot $1000 extra in your paycheck this month to take the shot and not enough double its $2000 to take that shot. Mm. I'll give you a month's salary. I'll double your salary for the month. If you take the shot We're getting closer. That's it. That's my final offer. I'll double your salary for the month. But you've got to take the shot, okay? I would have 40 to 50% considerate. Oh, I got you halfway All right, and in a week off Wakes vacation. I'd be worried too much about me. Oh, yeah. You worry yourself sick anyway, uh, colleague of ours got his second shot yesterday and went home feeling terribly sick, by the way, not for nothing. Just like my mother. Got her second shot felt terribly sick. That's another thing. So so far knock wood not being cocky about it, not saying I can't get it. Knock wood so far, if I got it last year, not sure how to stretch Actually remembered specifically when it was because I was doing Specific interview at the time that I felt it I was very overcome for about 24 to 48 hours with something I remember vividly remember who I was interviewing. When I felt that way. I don't know what it was. I have no idea if it was that or not. I could go get the anybody test. I suppose man's for that. Maybe I will one of these days. But other than that, I've been finished a fiddle for the last year. Mm. I have to tell you that based on everything that I've seen and watched From A year ago to today, including everybody that's got in the vaccine. I'm I'm still betting on me. I'm still betting on nature. I'm still betting on my own system. And that's your right to do so like that's not because I don't think Corona virus is real? No, not because I don't think coronavirus has killed people or made them ill. I know it as I know it's all real. I still like my personal odds is all exactly, And that's the way it should be. And it's not like like people have a problem with you saying that for some reason, yet somehow the really, really smart people that went out I got my vaccine and got very ill. Not saying that's our colleague, By the way to be clear, you know, that don't mean to pick on him. But, you know, look, people got went out. They got their vaccine, and it made them feel better or whatever. Great I'm not. And I'm not saying everybody. They got the vaccine feel sick, either. All right, just to be clear. But you know the people that are in the sanctimonious credit, but I got it. I got my vaccine. And then they you know, they get violently ill for a day or two. I'm like Wolf Boy. You showed me. Here. I am feeling all that all well and everything and unvaccinated. What a sucker. I am, uh Sorry. Sorry.

This startup is making customized sexual harassment training

"Is raising money. And i think this is a really cool company and i want you to tell us all about it. Athena raised money in june with two million round for anti harassment software that it would send to companies and companies basically. Install it for their employees. You'd get a nudge every month. Five minute training and it'd be kind of this idea of making a more flexible way of learning about how to deal with modern situations that might rise up better than the one hour lecture. This is a shift in its focus. Because before was doing kind of one thing and now it's doing a broader array of things when it raised in june was just doing anti harassment in zoom and slack world and now eight months later. It's another two million co led by the same firm. Gsp that let first round of it's and it's going into anything compliance related whether that's how to make sure you are not doing insider trading by mistake or or other bits like that and it's they leaned on big customers which was the impetus for this round including netflix's doom and send us and so for an early stage startup. Those are big names. They have twenty thousand active employees completing their monthly training which the co founder is a positive signal that it's at least getting engagement in some way. Are you currently caught up on your corporate training for verizon media group as managing editor one of my wonderful tasks at the company is to actually monitor our employees to make sure they follow all of the different trainings that they have to do. Because i am the one who gets. The e mails for a bunch of folks that says so and so is sixty days later on their annual compliance training. We will delete thirty male if they do not respond immediately. Did not know that was a state attorney question again dan. Natasha and i caught up on our vm. I think you're mostly caught up february's if you are not cut up would have been fired because most the recordings are due in december. So if you haven't done them you would be out nailed it tauscher. There's also some grows numbers and our notes here. Something like two hundred and fifty percent growth quarter over quarter. What is that metric tracking in the athena's since it was tracking basically the amount of people who are on the platform amount of learners. That are coming to athena. Obviously those big contracts and mentioned earlier help them be able to prove that like any startup. right now knock sharing revenue profitability et et cetera. They're just hoping to use this money to gain new customers and figure out that stuff. Later is spelled. E. t. h. e. n. a. Not of in ethene like it's like patina but it's not blockchain related. I usually ask founders for the story behind their name but recently i guess i have not been good enough to that curious enough about how that came together. I think the idea of little mini modules. Make sense. I mean some of the things i actually remember. From compliance training are like mini modules for instance detectors by verizon media and reisen media's owned by and say verizon because it has infrastructure works with government a lot and so in our corruption training which had to take. Oh yeah there's this great story of like you're working hard at work in the field and you have a city official with you. Can you offer them a bottle of water on a hot day. And i was like stir and there's like wrong committed bribery and corruption and a dig radiation to american society. You may not offer anything of value. Not even a penny. You can't offer free water bottle or kick cat.

John Hunter from The Frozen Rope Podcast

"Let's jump right in man to frozen rope. Let us know who you are and what you do. My name is john hunter. I am thirty years old from northeast. Philly i'm a union glazer by day but i am a podcast. Her by night a baseball podcast about three months ago during the world series. I decided to go for it. I never I always wanted to do it. But i just. It was weird. It was like a couple of years. There was a couple of years where i was just telling my brother like i wanna to do this. Like this is what i to do. And then you know just life happens or you. Just you know procrastinate on stuff and it just just ended up not happening. And i mean it's kinda crazy. I'm probably the only person you've ever benefit benefited from the pandemic. I decided like all right. Well i have nothing else better to do right now and i just decided that his by like all like the microphones already had headphones off but like my wife already had. My wife has a mac book. And i was like all right. Well why don't just get into it. And i'll do it. And then the world series happy. You know what this is what. I'm going to start it i. I was sitting on headphones stuff for like two months before i even recorded an episode and it was just like it was crazy. But that's pretty much how it all started. So how did you come up with a name the frozen ropes. Explain that all right so the frozen rope a frozen rope in its own. Right is a a line drive or a a like in basketball. It's considered like something that just like shack is. He just threw the ball pretty much of the rim. And that's like for baseball. Like i remember the first time i've ever heard the term. It was vladimir guerrero was playing. I think for the expos at the time and he threw a lot. He threw a liner from from the right field right to the catcher and the and the announcer was like that was a frozen rope and i was like i like that and then it became my gamertag on like xbox back fox three six and i was an like then it just over the years. I was like you know if i ever do one. If i were to go podcast the name of it will be the frozen row. Podcast and this has been since i was like. I don't know maybe like twelve. Thirteen new podcast. Ball's probably if i ever do something the frozen rope lock. That's also again all right so so explain a little bit about the process right three months in. Obviously you had the name. Since you're twelve yeah What about the logo and things like that. So the logo was pretty simple. Is the major league baseball. i mean. hopefully they don't come after me for infringement or anything but it's a. It's literally just a baseball. The baseball symbol. The major league baseball symbol with headphones on it and it started off as being red white and blue normal. The normal one and then. I got affiliated with media. Group called the buzz and they were just like you know we. We don't wanna get hit with infringement. They're like so. What can we do here. And i was like. I mean you could change the color if you want to your color scheme. And that's what they did. They changed it to their scholar. Scheme ended up working out pretty well. They put the ball in the headphones. And it was just completely just change. Everything about it so it was. It was pretty cool. That's awesome so explain a little bit about how you got connected with the buzz okay. So the i'm in like this. I'm a nerd when it comes to baseball. So i'm in a sports group simply just pretty much baseball. It's called sports chat but it's really not just baseball pretty much on a why they don't just change it a baseball chat whatever so it started off with that and then there's this guy like you know i told him i made episode or two and he's like oh give let me let give it a listen so he gave listen and he was like he's like you know me and my body just started a media group not too long ago with another group and the guy some. I went nuts so they just decided this move on from that it ended up being where they just were like a baseball podcast because they have like five. They'd five podcast on their thing right now and before me and all five of them were either for them. Were wrestling podcast. I don't know why you need that. Many good for them. And there's a guy who's actually from like england who's on there which is pretty cool. It's pretty cool. The way they do it. They're a great group of guys and it's pretty cool everything and then there was a guy. Then there's some rain on. I think there's a soccer program to that. They're trying to generate right now. Trying to get more people to watch and on anyone. You guys are in a soccer. But if he's argo try that and then Then they different stuff on there but it was pretty cool the way that it kind of came about and then i told them that i wrote. I've be right little articles. I've written articles for guys know the tattoo dunphy. So dunphy is a friend of mine. I've known for a long time. But i went to high school with a grade school. I believe too. And like i've known for a long time him in this other dude joe that i'm friends with a started a base. They started a podcast and stuff called like deep fly and they do a bunch of stuff for their own media group. So they asked me. Would you want to write for our so. I was doing like little baseball pieces for the phillies. And i would just write little things for them and it ended up being pretty cool. It was it was like a cool experience. So i get myself into that type of realm like i always wanted to do something baseball related. I didn't care what it was like i. I'm way too small to play and to old to play so it's just got past that and i was an in so i kind of looked on the other side and i don't know it's just something that i was always into so it all worked out well so so explain a little bit about So to download An episode from the frozen rope. What what can they expect. What some of the topics you hit Things like that So one thing i always. I'm a red sox fan. That's the start off. And i always tell people baseball fan. I red sox me and second. There's i never really ever wanted to do anything as far as just saying like i want to cover one team. Yes there is. Because i'm very diverse. When it comes to the sport. I know pretty much. I don't want to brag. But i know a lot i know i know pretty much everything enough to make my own podcast and be confident with the things that i say. Yeah so i feel as if when you go on there. You'll see someone who's not biased. You'll see somebody who you know truly cares about. The sport gives a good input on my thoughts. In how. I how. I look at the game. Yeah i got a guy the other day. Text me one of my friends from the from the union. Us just like it's crazy. It's like he's like. I feel like i know the game. He's like but you like no it and he's like he's like you. It's almost like i give him like a managerial like input. Like i've been around since i was like nine. My dad was a head coach of saint joe's prep. He was a great baseball player. I've been around the game my whole life and then it just you know i. It just been something that i've always been in love with. I told my wife. That's unfortunate. You are probably my second. Love will always be my first and she just tells me she hates me for that. But it's funny. it's just it's just. It's just how it's always been baseball's always been there you know and so it's i always wanted to do something with it and you'll see somebody who just did something with

Republicans clinging to Senate majority as races wind down

"And, of course, the Senate likely to go to stay in Republican hands. That way May I have we have to run offs in Georgia? That is the majority. The GOP is now having lost. Colorado is down to a two vote majority totally end up with two run offs and Georgia the center of the election universe from now through January. Makes the people that Apollo and Cox Media Group smile, But tomorrow will be bombarded during the Christmas. But I would still say it's more likely that they hold the Senate. Then they lose the Senate at this point that is corrupt. And and But with Pelosi, there was a rejection here of all of this kind of nonsense. I think s J W ism was rejected by the country. The concept of packing the court's None of this stuff worked when we thought that they were going to pick up seats and they actually lost seats. I'm asking you. Do you believe that she will get a good will She have to run hard to retain the speakership, this time from some sort of centrist candidate. She got one last time a little bit little push. Not much, And my guess is she has enough favors to call in over the years to get it anyway. But do you think it's going to be a little tougher for her this time, Tio? It will be, but There's no significant interest in the house. You could stand to run against her. I'm not saying there are no centrists, but there's no caucus. There's no meaning The Republicans have the same problem. Both of them have abandoned the political middle. Chasing their bases through this election cycle and the prior cycle and so You know what we used to call Chamber of Commerce Republicans largely, and there was a large caucus about any of that They don't exist right now may not say they can't come back, but there is nobody in either party representing those voters. I can't remember. There's a guy from Ohio who briefly challenged their last time who was trying to create some sort of Democrats scented centrist sort of thing. I mean, I do think you'll see that on state levels. I think you'll see party nominees in 2022. Moving towards the middle because I agree with you.

Dream Boy And The Poison Fans

"By the time that Emily Fangs reporting this story in March, the controversy around this actor at already gotten so hot that many of his fans refused to talk to a reporter others asked to speak in ways that would not reveal their true identities. NPR, by the way has very strict standard on this, you have to reasonably expect harm to your person or livelihood, and they met the standard there been retributive attacks and death threats. But we're GONNA start our story before all that back when Xiaojun was getting more endorsements than almost any idol in China is twenty eight tall and thin with Pale skin big eyes and understand the role he played in Chinese pop culture. You can look to the TV ads that were scripted with his image in mind. Mike Emily showed me this ad for Esti Lipstick So it starts in this. Hotel lobby most is really warm. Golden Sojourn appears the top of the staircase. He looks down and sees one beautiful woman in the crowd. She looks quite unsure of herself. He, sees this woman. And he can tell you quickens his steps who walks down the staircase briskly and it looks like he's about to approach her. But instead he grabbed golden balloon and he sends it her way with a package attached. The balloon didn't inside is surprise and estee louder lipstick which puts on an all of a sudden. She has confidence she struts out and she takes position on stage in front of a microphone. And you sojourn the crowd, he begins to clap for her and everyone else begins to clap her. As the woman smiles. They're selling the image of him as someone who helps others and to as helper of beauty he's too good to be human. But he's always there helping others be their best selves. Really Shapes. Shenzhen's millions of fans. See Him looks very clean. Looks. Very decent. He looks very gentle. This is an we're calling by her initials is E. IMA passer. Yes life I have never seen someone look at it. Is. E is thirty years old married. and. She was about to become the mother when I talked to her. So she has not the typical style Jonathan? Savage John Fans are usually single women young teenagers, teenagers likely in middle school or high school is e says that. This kind of connector to her friends because they always have something to talk about show. Good looks. And also there is a another reason is because I feel when people are pursuing I'll say when they're Authorian cert- can kind of celebrity they must have fun something in the celebrity that way don't have our self. So is he describes herself as very frank, a very frank and outspoken person maybe even a little harsh and one of the things she ended these most in South Asia is his gentleness so that I feel that is something I want to learn from him because John is portrayed a sweet person. He also needs protection because that gentleness can be taken advantage of in his fans need to. Be the ones who stand up for him here is where China's Fan Culture and actually Asian Fan Culture in general it kind of veers away from even the most intense fan behavior in the West because a lot of fancy it as their job, even their responsibility, not just to admire their idol and to support him but to go so much further. So is he talks about how in these? Media groups, some of which will have hundreds of thousands of followers. Each there are something called a child Wa. So sopra topic, what's called Super Topic or Toha, and which some of the lead fans who devote hours a day to organizing this fans structure, we'll give orders to. Fans beneath them about what they need to achieve for that day. So today, we're all going to click on this one music video and watch it or today we're all going to buy products from this brand because they've signed an endorsement deal with children. Say the broadcaster from the Child Watt who say today when you to do this today when you to do that so you remember that Estee Lauder ad for lipstick according to Chinese media estee Lauder Botox, pitched show in two thousand eighteen sold out not only within the first day of their release but within the first. Hour. Totalling almost six million dollars in sales, and then back on the fan club sites, fans would celebrate what they saw as their success. It's IMMA fine. You want to support your idol by making here she gets the most brand endorsements and makes the most money on behalf of these companies. I get I get what Xiaojun gets out of this he gets. And success money what fans get out of making him. So successful by being particularly influential fan of Superfan you also get a lot of power and influence the majority of his fans are going to be. Young girls in their middle school or high school years. So in real life, they're not going to have a lot of power in Chinese society. But by being a part of this fan group, you become part of this very powerful commercial

‘Fight on’: Arrested Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai tells staff

"Kong media tycoon and pro democracy campaigner Jimmy Lai has urged his fellow citizens to fight on against Beijing's new security law for Hong Kong. Recently released after his dramatic arrest on Monday, Jimmy Lai said he would continue to be unapologetically critical of Beijing. Mr Lyte runs the Apple Daily tabloid newspaper in Hong Kong as part of his next digital media group. 200 police officers raided his newsroom at the start of this week. We managed to talk to him earlier today, and I asked him if he saw his arrest coming. I was expecting this, but not soon. Because the national security go has such a re bonds from the international community and you as the using a team sanctions against the people who are responsible and all that. You know, Hongkong people were alarm like 30% off the business leaders that they're moving, or did he move business elsewhere? And 40% sadistic emigrate. And those are the elites so you can consider what the pending the ordinary people really a feeling. So I thought that the Chinese the city CCP should have found that there's a blunder and they was kept low key and knocked on the actuators. That's so speculated all When I saw the bodies came into my house seven o'clock in the morning, the day before yesterday ideal. I was too optimistic and lung of the policeman. Spoke. Mandiri so even is actually was said to be. The law is still more being control by the Hong Kong police. Which is the press. I think, tell us about the moment you were arrested. Tell us where they took you. What happened? That's not the first time I was arrested. I was arrested 213 times before. This time. They said that he's a national security door, which is more scary. I just forgot what I felt. You know, I just asked them, OK, Can I go up and have a bath and change because I just finished my exercise? And they said, Let's make you crave, but we have the follow you. You can't close it all When you bath. The police has to be outside watching me, and that's a very unusual as last time was not a serious Estes. I was not thinking about anything else. Maybe I was feeling a bit numb. Let's see what happens. They handcuffed me and send me to the police station. What sort of questions? Did they ask you in detention? I would remain silent. You know, they shall be a lot of interviews that I did before Two lifers and also some off my treater Lifestream on supposed Nate. Those are things that I have wildly the National security law, and that's it all remains silent. I didn't give any answer Both your sons were arrested, too focused charges because they have nothing to do with my business. Are you worried that eventually you could be taken to mainland China to face detention and questioning maybe even trial there. By worry above. This is a lot less because I can see that the lesson Secretary Law Department is under the control of Hong Kong police. Don't Aziz worry as I was before about being sent to China, But you never know. You understand how you stand out for the authorities in Beijing being the only Major media owner in Hong Kong without any links to the Chinese state. Yes, that's why I'm the target, and I knew that was a hug it and I knew that I would have to face up to whatever that comedian exercise that they will have to do to me on. I didn't prepare as early as the day before yesterday. What do you say to those in Hong Kong who still campaign against the law? While I think that we will have to see what happens, you know, because nobody can campaign against them or any way not. But the law is an honor. I think Hong Kong people were very angry when I was a rest. You know, you could see that I was stopped. Price drop admittedly. But then He's gone up like almost a few 100 times, just because people showed their support. And when he's not horse racing Day, we so less than 100,000 papers and yes, they we so about half a 1,000,000 your arrest on Monday will inevitably make you something of a figurehead for the opposition movement. How do you feel about that? Well, the way I feel that his owner, because when I was in the custody, I could not sleep. You know the night before I was thinking if I knew that what's gonna happen to me now? And even further more hardship. Would I have done the same thing and I form above this and said, Oh, maybe, you know, I would not have another way. This is my character and the character is destiny, and once I accept my destiny is so slight accepted. God's pressing. I was all the sudden, very relieved and said that whatever comes there will be depressing for God. It sounds like you're very much expecting more brushes with Beijing. Well, if they started, they will stop right. So it's just the beginning. A lot more people will probably be arrested as you were. What's your message to Hong Kong now? They come. I think we have to be a bloke cautious. You know what assistance to reserve our rule of law and freedom and also the same time. You know, we have to be more careful and more creative in the way that we persists. Our resistance. We can't do the same thing we did before, and we can be a heretical before especially young people. Because the more radical the sort of life spend we have, you know, fighting. We had to really used our brain and patience because this's a long fight. Radicalism is not for long.

MeWe, the "anti" Facebook

"Many of us have been very upset with facebook lately. Due to their policies about hate, speech and others and many advertisers have started pulling their money in response. Well, what do we do if we don't want to go to facebook anymore? Where do we go? Well Mark Weinstein has a deal for you. He has the Anti facebook. A new social network called me. We and he'd love to tell you all about it mark. Thank you all right so. Listen. Everybody is fed up with facebook. And with the big social media giants right because they practice a business model called surveillance capitalism. So all. Their about is collecting as much data about us, and then targeting us and manipulating our thoughts and our purchase decisions, they employ thousands of data, scientists and psychologists this their game, and they serve US outrageous content because it, it causes higher engagement. It's all screwed up. So, we have a platform called me. We M E W. And, it solves all the problems. It has all the features people love about social media groups, great pages disappearing content great stories, even journals great, you know private news feeds for your close friends, and then for all your contacts, everything people of and none of the S.. There's no way for anybody to boost anything in your new seat. There's no way for an advertiser or marketer a politician to target you. We get rid of all. That is commonsense. Our members, our customers to serve not data to sell or target okay, but the biggest challenge you've got is you don't have a billion people there. It's going to take a long time for people to find friends on me. We whether you say. That's easy. The first thing that happened in our growth listen. We are now over eight million members without spending one penny to get people to come to our platform, no user acquisition costs. And this is because. People come together, so people come together to me. We their groups. They're groups of people whether they're you know interested in in bicycling or fitness or music or entertainment or Conservative or progressive politics. What we've seen is that people find out about me. And they moved together common interest, groups, constituents, families, and so now with over eight million people headed straight to ten million. If you come over just as an individual, and you match your address book, you're likely to find people that you know already. Okay mark of people love facebook when it came out to, but then as it grew. In came to hate speech and all the fighting and the vitriol that people now hate about facebook. So how'd you make sure that we does not become the next facebook? We can't because number one. Our business model is completely and utterly different. Their business model always involved getting data targeting just got better and better and better at it. Now I have the tech talk on this called the rise of surveillance capitalism. So first of all by definition and by design and by engineering, we are completely and utterly different, so there is no booster triumphant. There is no way to target people. Those aren't feel thin. We also have a privacy bill of rights, so there is no fee facial recognition. You own your content, you know you control whether in our directory or not, and we have a poison pill in our privacy policy also that says if we ever change. Change, our privacy policy. We not only have to tell you the changes, but at the same time we have to give you a link to your account and download all your files. If you don't like the changes now, facebook had that they would have been out of business six years

majority of what what did they do exactly to improve the treatment the efficiency the provision of health and medical care in their areas almost nothing that I can think of all they pretty much have done have they have used their police forces to impose lockdowns lockdowns of churches and synagogues blocked down to small businesses lockdowns of entire neighborhoods and communities for which they are to be praised according to the media any effort to undo these lockdowns the media is the question how many people will die why are the lockdowns preventing people from dying we just saw in the case of New York Cuomo just said we'll play later sixty percent of the people who died were in lockdown what how in other words when they send kids in college students back to their homes some of whom might even carriers by the way with their parents and grandparents that had the reverse effect today that never made sense doctor I need these from a Stanford told us that early on Dr Katz from yelp told us that early on but I'm quite serious shuffling paper shuffling around resources demanding federal interference demanding federal this and federal at what did most of these governors actually do to effectively address this pandemic in the answer is virtually nothing this is why the media and these Democrats are wedded to the lockdowns that's all they've got they can't point to anything else and they will insist over and over again despite the fact there are many scientific experts out there who disagree good lord found chairman others they are locked down the wrong people you know locked down all the people you elect on the most vulnerable people once you figure it out but it's very difficult for Cuomo to take the boot off the throat of New York City in his entire state is very difficult for news of the take the boot off the throne of his various metropolitan areas but in the entire state it's very difficult for Murphy all these guys the clown in Michigan I haven't done anything medically or health care wise to confront this illness in any significant way but exercise something akin to martial law no I know I'm the point of the spear when I raise these issues like the death toll would not be anything near what they said that many more people have the virus enter a symptomatic than is being reported which of course brought down the percentages of the death because death is a terrible thing so it's not something that that's to be taken now in a non serious way but that's not the point one is the information we've been given but I really do I scratch my head and wonder what these particular these Liberal Democrat governors what exactly did they do they pride themselves on forcing people to stay home they pride themselves on shuttering business we're not gonna open any business Sir we're not gonna do anything that's going to affect the lives of anybody where we're just not going to do we're not ready to go but we're not going to do it because they're praised this is all they've done they've taken out the brass knuckles of government and punched everybody in the teeth this is also why the pandemic of all the other illnesses whether it's heart disease or strokes are cancer and so much more and the number of people who are sicker today than they otherwise would be the other people who are dead today who might not be dead had they gotten the treatment they need it is never discussed with the CDC the NIH we've got the this and that we get the stage how many people have died from non corona virus illnesses since January one is it significantly more than last year exactly how many hospitals have closed exactly how many hospital beds have been lost exactly how many doctors and nurses have been put out of business since January one you can't find this information easily because the new York times is too busy trashing trump the Washington post is too busy trashing trap and they're all too busy trashing any governor who dares to open up their state and they're doing it slowly it's not like let it rip they're not of nobody's doing that the governors that have had an authoritarian even fascistic impulse are the ones that are praised by The New York slimes the Washington compost and they're sick of phantom cable network and satellite news the president was asked today by reporter I like you know you you said now that you know we need to do more to help the economy and so forth what if there's more deaths more illness now that is based on the assumption that if we have more deaths and more illnesses because it's because more people are free to live their lives but why is it based on that we were just told by Cuomo that sixty percent of the desecrated by people who are hunkering down and we know the people at the in the M. two nursing homes and assisted living facilities are the most valuable thing tire population where they opening businesses Furthermore this virus it's not you snap your fingers of people die it takes in most cases every case is different but in most cases when you look at the data that they're giving us it takes ten to fourteen days it could take twenty one days so you see an increase in deaths it's not because of anything any governor has done lately and here's the other point there's nothing else the government can do well mark wanted there's nothing else the government at any level can do nothing what are you saying what I'm saying the truth if I'm the first appointed out so be it there is literally nothing else the president or this task force can do there's literally nothing else a governor can do they can do harm as Cuomo is done and other governors have done horrific deadly harm to populations in this country but there's nothing else they can do to protect us from this virus it's going to take the vaccine which may or may not develop it's going to take some treatments which may or may not develop all of which even when working with the government all of which are going to have to come out of the private sector the pharmaceutical companies the lapse and so forth but there's nothing else a governor can do to protect us this is a deadly virus now the president has taken steps for which he was attacked to try to protect us and he's done so more than any governor in any other states when it comes to immigration when it comes to travel when it comes to red China when it comes to your app filling the void said states had for instruments for medical where and on and on and on Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer the Democrats have no plan they have no idea there's nothing else the government can do all they want to do is spend money all they want to do is spend money because the vast majority of their base relies on the federal government for its sustenance the vast majority the Republican base does not so spending us into oblivion in riches and rewards their base and that's all they care about they'll burn down the country in order to get power they don't care and so they keep pushing fear and panic The New York Times we talked about this yesterday is leaked a so called report that hasn't been vetted that hasn't been tested that even the CDC itself from which the report kicks can distance itself said with that's not a final report but the new York times gotta talk about three thousand deaths a day starting in June I believe and they headline this thing why they don't have all the facts they don't have all the facts out she denies it Burke's denies it what do they do that fear and panic if you so fear and panic people will give up their liberties ask your neighbors talk to them.

"Mind blowing. What they could do coming out of this. I never known that they are doing and they will just accelerate existing trends but it truly accelerate some because it gets its sweep stuff out of their way so The other ones that are coming. Our apple and I think Amazon today's Today. Yeah what do you expect from them? While I'm already skipping our kind of I'll make another prediction but I give to my prediction. I think Amazon becomes the Second Most Valuable Company today. The their earnings I mean look at the business center and we. We didn't okay. Obviously ECOMMERCE crate. We know that's going to be crazy up just a matter of how much a crazy. Aws is probably going to see a surge in activity. The thing that people don't talk about. What's the fastest growing media company over a billion dollars in the world? I now Amazon Media Group and so Amazon Media Group is now. It's probably going to be one of the five biggest media companies in the world. I'm not talking about Amazon Prime Video. I'm talking about Amazon Media Group. Will you by ads such that once? You have huggies in your basket A PNG can advertise Pampers and say no look over here and it becomes impossible the in store shopper. Marketing if you will. It's a bigger business and advertising in Amazon's about to make it a bigger business than almost every digital media company with the exception of facebook and Google so it just doesn't whether it's ECOMMERCE whether it's cloud whether there are more more households have a relationship with prime go to church or have a pattern decorated Christmas tree so biggest cable company biggest has going Media Company cloud company fastest growing ECOMMERCE company. Fastest growing or most competent back in fulfillment logistics company in the world. So look tonight post earnings and it's always dangerous to make these calls. Amazon becomes the Second Most Valuable Company in the world. And it's marched the most valuable company in the world within the next year if not the next ninety days but you could see Amazon. The value of Boeing At four one pm today I think that earnings in the I think the earn I. It's almost scary to listen to the Ernie overnight scary. Let me read you. This part of a columnist better than go up in the Times but in the time this after this crisis over I can say that I fear them more because they will be more unfettered than ever with much less pushback on them from regulators and politicians that had been building decent momentum before corona virus instead it is accelerated their speed and tighten their grip on our lives and this kind of consolidation of power combined with a stronghold on data automation robotics artificial intelligence media advertising entertainment retail and even autonomous. Tech is daunting stunt. Well look I I think I think Biden his VP. Especially feels Elizabeth Warren. I think one of the only thing that'll do it. Warren think warrants warrants. The only one. That's knowledgeable enough and can even speak speak. articulate enough to it and isn't afraid of these guys everyone else's afraid so but. I think it's almost a presidential platform to say that. The best way to ensure we don't step towards tyranny the best way to restore income inequality the best way to go bust out of this dangerous cycle the gross idolatry of innovators the best way to ensure the stock market continues to go up. And that are innovators and true. Engine of growth small businesses is oxygenated would be would be a break-up we are tripling the budgets the DOJ. I I know I sound like in the middle of the more hopeful and I think they're not GonNa do it. I don't think Biden has the has to do it anyway. In any case we're going to take a quick break and when we get back We're GonNa talk about things that aren't doing so well. Bergen how they're faring. These days spoiler alert. Not well as you know at a listener mail question. Most of us are sticking close to home right now. Maybe you're getting a little antsy. Maybe you WANNA smother your children.

Peachtree street at ninety five point five WSP Atlanta's news and talk is an NBC news special covert nineteen what you need to know here is ABC news correspondent Aaron Katersky it's been weeks since most of us have been out to eat today restaurants in Georgia we're allowed to open for dine in service as the state continues to loosen coronavirus restrictions Tennessee's re opening retail stores Kentucky's re openings of health care services dog groomers can reopen in Wisconsin we're corona virus has hit harder it's different the governor of New Jersey said today restrictions continue indefinitely and the governor of New York said he expected to extend them for the city and its suburbs but the lunch crowd came back in parts of Georgia as our affiliate WSB found a chance to eat inside a restaurant Kim Kucera says this Brookhaven waffle house was her first choice the family hang out we are talking about the whole field in this family in the champ wasn't here this day but the company says no matter who walks in some things haven't changed they're going to get that welcome the waffle house the greeting that we're all excited to be able to give them for when they come in it'll be very clear where they can and cannot said company spokesperson in Gerry boss showed us the big red tape strapped across some of the books and some of the schools are also off limits to maintain safe social distancing the cooks and servers are all wearing masks and X. marks the spot where you can stand as you wait for a seat some don't like governor camp's decision to allow restaurants like this to re open their dining rooms but boss believes many of the critics may be able to work from home while still collecting a paycheck to say that when they still have all of those things we want to be here to make sure that everybody who wants to go and have the opportunity to can take care of themselves and their family that's the American way as for Kim cassette as she feels comfortable eating inside says there's a sense of home here and it all starts off with waffle house what can't get any more American the waffle house right many will never feel comfortable venturing out or re opening a business without a vaccine and most experts think that's at least a year away some scientists are considering rather unconventional ways to speed up the process one of them raises some moral questions we're joined by Dr Angela Baldwin of Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx is also part of our medical team here at ABC news Dr Baldwin this method involves injecting healthy adults with live coronavirus correct so this is called a challenge trial where healthy adults are divided into two groups one group received a placebo and the other group receives the potential vaccine but both groups are injected with the virus and the point is for them to for researchers to see how effective the vaccine is against the virus and this kind of speed up the timeline because normally in a normal situation what somebody receives a vaccine the researchers just have to kind of wait for that person to naturally be infected with whatever virus or disease that the vaccines intended to treat is it the only way to do this definitely not this normally vaccine trials go through three phases phase one phase to help determine the specific dosing that safe and then you know an overall kind of safety of the vaccine and then in phase three is when they do these large very large trials for the enroll thousands of patients and a half receive the vaccine the other half isn't but then they just kind of track them and follow them throughout their daily lives and see okay all this group you know they were exposed to the virus and it looks like the vaccine worked the problem is these are just very long and then kind of a bit cumbersome and so that's why some researchers are proposing this challenge trial the kind of by pass phase three doesn't raise any moral dilemmas definitely a moral dilemmas they do try to mitigate the risk but the fact of the matter is we are taking otherwise healthy adults and injecting them with a virus that could have serious consequences including death the other side they do try to mitigate the risks they would only be enrolling healthy adult volunteers without underlying medical conditions but the problem is we do know that unfortunately there are young people who are still dying from call the nineteen you may also not have any underlying conditions there's still so much we don't know that just makes it's completely unsafe and the other problem is if somebody does get very sick you know we're dealing with a health care crisis right now work the critical care that one may need may not always be readily available and resources may be scarce so to inject somebody of the virus and the potentially kill them and put them in a situation where they urgently need critical care that might not be available raises a few eyebrows from from office I guess it's tempting though when everyone wants the vaccine this seems like the speediest way you know if they could and and one of the questions we ask ourselves is how much does this speed up the the normal course of us finding a vaccine right so if it only speeded up by one month maybe not that great of an idea of the speeded up by six months eight months okay maybe but also the thing to realize is that the challenge trials only one part of a of a two step process these researchers are suggesting would replace phase three so you still have the challenge of trial where the people are given the live virus but then in the second part they would need to test the vaccine on the most vulnerable members of the population right the elderly people under my medical conditions these are the people who really need the vaccine so we need to make sure it's safe in them so during the second phase they would give each of those types of people the vaccine but they would not be injecting them with the with the virus so that means we still in this kind of things were waiting for these people to in the natural course of their days be exposed to the virus so it's really not short meaning that the for the third phase by that much if you think about it who's going to decide ultimately you know that's a very good question I think ultimately we have these things called internal review boards RBC and they are designed to look out for the welfare of participants in subjects in studies and I think it's basically going to fall on the individual IRB's to decide whether or not they're going to allow this to to commission their institution Dr Angela Baldwin of the ABC news medical unit while the world waits for a vaccine all of us adapt to new routines out of our offices and working from say the kitchen table firms are now debating how and whether to repopulate offices small workers are deciding whether they're comfortable taking off the sweat pants and putting back on the suit consumer minute vices law firm said soy Hauser group you joins us from Chicago we're all kind of getting used to this aren't we yes you know I think this is going better than many law firms thought it would technology working well generally people are productive at home some people even like it what's not to like you can be in your pajamas and still accomplish the same kind of work you know in a candid moment a lot of lawyers would probably tell you that and I think that there is upside for both lawyers and for firms to do that the flexibility is something the people of wanted since before the crisis in some law firms before the crisis we're taking small steps towards being more flexible about where people worked and they saw upside both in attracting talent who wanted to be working where they were comfortable where they were where it was convenient also for the law firms there's a big expense of course on the real estate side real estate for most law firms is their second biggest expense behind paying lawyers so they're interested long term many law firms are in using less space why would any firm go back to renting expensive space again if this is working it's that's a great question different firms are different so some firms before the crisis we're happy to move towards less space and I think that the crisis will accelerate the move towards less space for those firms other firms the before the crisis had a culture of being in the office together they placed a premium on facetime and I think after the crisis some of those firms will revert to form and they will want to be in the office more so there will be some that accelerate towards work at home more and take on less space and I think others will want to snap back to how they were previously law firms like many other firms can be notoriously inflexible though about people's time has the shortest that it can work differently I think that this crisis has proven that actually can work pretty well for many lawyers in many firms different lawyers have practices that lend themselves to working remotely so for example a lawyer who needs to appear in court or take depositions in person that doesn't work as well remotely of course others though K. and worked quite productively from anywhere and that works for the firm in for their clients when you ask people what the impediments are to remote working some of the things that come up are things like whether working remotely as an impediment to mentoring opportunities for young and up and coming lawyers they asked about whether working remotely as an impediment to a training those lawyers and they also ask about whether working remotely is an impediment to collaborating together and so some firms will find ways to address those impediments and work around them others will feel the need to be a person more often Kent Zimmerman a principle that's only because our group joining us from Chicago coming

S. B. latest news and talk you're listening to an ABC news special copay nineteen what do you need to know in the B. C. news correspondent Amy Robach and with me now is ABC chief medical correspondent Dr Jen Ashton and there is some big news about colleges and universities considering re opening in the fall let's go through this systematically how it would work well first of all I mean we have to acknowledge is a complex situation in the health and safety of not just this population but the entire college and university community is obviously priority number one but here are some things that we know at this point medically we know that the college age group is at a lower risk of severe covert nineteen disease we also know that in this age group and in this environment social distancing is definitely going to be uniquely challenging and we also know that there are people in these communities whether they're college students with pre existing medical conditions or the staff or faculty that worked in and around colleges that could be vulnerable and may be at higher risk as well what options should be considered well I think there are some theories that are worth really exploring the first thing is is can we modify the timing of the spacing some of the classroom activities some of the other activities they shouldn't be looked at like an all or none decision in terms of sports theatre dormitory dining all of those things could be modified it's not an all or one situation and we have to remember that masks once the CDC recommended that for the general public they may be a key tool in reducing the transmission of this virus in the college communities from a health standpoint what do we still need to figure out well look luckily we have a little bit of time to do this but I think there is still a lot of things we don't know where to begin with we don't know what the role of rapid testing on a college campus can look like we don't know whether to college students and whether our kids will actually be compliant with some of the social distancing measures and we really don't know when you talk about risks which is worse right now going back to college in some way shape or form or take taking another year plus and not going back you both have to weigh those risks head to head and it's not an easy answer all right Dr Jenna you're sticking around to answer questions in just a bit in the meantime we turn out A. B. C.'s kera Phillips in Washington DC with the latest headlines for us hi Amy well these are some of the stories that were watching plans to re open the economy are taking shape in a number of states restaurants in Atlanta starting up again with new rules in place for diners today including tables six feet apart and servers wearing masks and in New Jersey governor Phil Murphy is unveiling what he calls responsible re opening driven by quote data science and common sense and Texas governor Greg Abbott also detail in the plan for ending his statewide stay at home orders and re emerging for the first time today after pretty brutal bout of the virus British prime minister Boris Johnson apologizing for being away for three weeks and warning it's too soon to end the locked down in the U. K. speaking outside number ten Downing Street Johnson says we are now beginning to turn the tide on this disease but says he refuses to throw away the public's effort and sacrifice by relaxing the lockdown too soon thank you well the mayor of Las Vegas made headlines last week when she volunteered the city as a control group to see if social distancing is working joining us now to talk about how and when Las Vegas will reopen as Clark County commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick welcome commissioner and I want to first start by asking how you feel about mayor Goodman's comments well I don't agree with her you know my colleagues and I who oversee the beautiful Las Vegas Strip bill that we have to our highest priority needs to be the health and safety of not only our residents we work on this trip but the visitors who come to visit us yeah and that said the mayor also feels hotels casinos restaurants should reopen right now when do you think they should reopen and what will the economic impact three well we've been working every single day with our medical experts across the state a resort association are McCarron airport and the convention that's already so we are working in that direction testing is the key to getting us back open and we are in the middle of expanding that testing opportunities so we will open only when it's safe and we have the most stringent priorities and policies in place can you talk a little bit about specifically how the county is working with the casinos there and other businesses to prevent another outbreak when you do eventually re open well I thought back to we we have been successfully doing social doesn't change we are ramping up casting today we can do up to two thousand tests today we anticipate by June first being able to ten thousand task our hotel partners and our airports they're making some adjustments so that our visitors bilberry see it coming back and that is our priority and we'll invite everybody back when we feel that we can meet those and do you do you how do you feel the people of Clark County are doing in terms of doing that social distancing and following the guidelines you know we're doing a great job every single day we look at different ways I mean even as we bring back our own stops we have to think about how do we have that social distancing and the grocery stores we have lines out for running grocery lines one way I'm so I I'm very proud of what we're doing in our community on the social distancing face while commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick we know it's a tough job thank you for leading the people who use Sir we appreciate your time today thank you get back to work some schools may still be close so where do we go from there the CEO of childcare provider bright horizons Stephen Kramer is here to tell us and Stephen thanks for being with us I know that you have locations daycare locations across the country how many of your facilities remain open so we have a hundred and fifty centers here across the United States that are continuing to be operational and are clearly working under covert nineteen protocols yeah that is pretty surprising I think for a lot of us and and I'm sure so helpful to so many who need your facilities how are you able to keep them open safely absolutely so first and foremost we are focused on those hundred and fifty centers on providing care for essential workers most typically healthcare workers in so first and foremost we are really focused on that particular population in terms of keeping our staff as well as children safe we have implemented processes and procedures in conjunction with a medical expert Dr Kristen Moffett from Boston children's hospital whereby we are ensuring that we are able to keep children safe keep staff safe and really make sure that we are operating both from hygiene perspective as well as from a safety perspective really in an appropriate way so hundred fifty centers open right now what changes will need to be implemented though when day cares fully open back up yes so I I think families can expect a number of changes from what they experience prior to the pandemic also examples include pick up and drop off so often times they will be seen either staggered pick up and drop offs or alternatively it may be curbside pick up and drop off I think certainly I health checks either being asked to be done at home or being done at the centre when they arrive is an important element of keeping everyone safe in addition to that the teachers they will be wearing masks when when families returned and certainly in the bright horizons centers that are open today our teachers are wearing masks also those are the kinds of things they might expect in addition to enhanced hygiene protocols yeah it's Stephen is there anything parents can do now to be prepared for what's to come I think there are things that parents can be doing I think first and foremost it's really important for parents to make sure that they are checking the health of their child each morning and each and every day to make sure that they are not bring their child if they have any sign or symptom of a health issue I think in addition to that children won't be used to the teachers wearing masks that's not something that they would have experienced previously and so my recommendation would be to as a parent start wearing masks around the house start to educate your child that heroes wear masks and certainly the teachers in the centers are heroes and so experiencing and exposing them to that concept is important and then finally I would encourage pet parents to prepare themselves they need to have a little bit of extra patience and I would encourage them to show appreciation for the teachers who are working tirelessly through both now and in the future in the child care center environment I think so many parents are home right now have a absolute renewed appreciation of teachers and I love what you said heroes wear masks that's awesome Stephen Kramer thank you so much for being with us today we appreciate it thank you for having me UP next right here those masks are suddenly everywhere and officials say it's a good idea but the sight of them can frighten our children some techniques for helping them deal when we come back this can be seen news special continues after this eleven eleven thirty

S. B. latest news and talk listening to an ABC news special Kobe nineteen what you need to know once again here is ABC news correspondent Amy Robach new questions every day about this pandemic emergency Dr Jen Ashton is back with us with some answers to your questions and Dr Jenn we've got our first question I have a family member who needs to fly for work are there any other safety measures besides gloves and masks that you would recommend that is really the most important for the passenger you can try to plan the time of that travel maybe to lower peak hours if that's possible but what's interesting about travel is that some degree of travel is not gonna be optional or elective in the near future so we're starting to see as we've heard before airlines start to play around with how they can help reduce the risk so again cover your mouth and nose clean your hands and for now as an individual that's the best you can do all right our next question our sinus drainage and post nasal drip possible symptoms of cold at nineteen even without a fever interesting because we're hearing the CDC revise the symptom less straight they added six symptoms to cope in nineteen he used to be fever cough shortness of breath now they've extended it to body aches headache loss of smell taste sore throat even headache but here's the important thing with the post nasal drip and allergies we are an allergy season and as I always say you can have more than one thing at a time so yes it's possible that you could have a mild case of cobit and allergies and one of the new symptoms the CDC added was a sore throat so again above the neck symptoms it is possible and I'm sure we're gonna be seeing that list of symptoms get expanded in the future next question I'm a college professor recovering from coded nineteen and I'm struggling with sudden loss of secondary language fluency has there been any research on cognitive impairments related to cope with nineteen no formal research and data out yet Amy but you can imagine how frightening that would be if you start to notice these we you and I've talked here about neurologic manifestations to cove in nineteen there have been reports in the medical literature of people presenting with headache seizure dizziness loss and smell and taste are neurologic symptoms so cognitive function we may see that certainly and seriously cove in nineteen patients who have been in and I see you that's to be expected but we'll we'll hope that those things return back to normal okay next question we've been talking a lot about pregnancy this one about new moms is it safe to vaccinate babies or give booster MMR shots without testing them for cove in nineteen any expected complications like fever or anything else a couple of things with this because it's really important for the American academy of pediatrics talk about the risks of delaying infant immunizations in the setting of the covert nineteen pandemic number one fever is a possibly a good reaction of our body to anything whether it's a vaccination for exposure to something like Kobe right now pediatricians offices are not testing babies for cove it before they administer routine I mean ations but that may change in the future and we have to remember those immunizations are important so any concerns really want the parents to talk to the pediatrician all right great advice as always Dr Jan thank you and if you have questions for Dr Ashton you can submit them on her Instagram at Dr J. Ashton will masks and face coverings have become such a familiar sight around the country in this corona virus pandemic with a number of states now requiring them during visits to essential businesses and on public transportation but the sight of them can be scary especially for children A. B. C.'s Ariel Russia has more on what you can do to help lessen their anxiety Hey there any as you know kids can ask some pretty tough questions and this can actually be scary for them as you mention when they see people out there wearing masks they see their parents wearing masks but experts say there are ways to help them adapt to this new normal and some of them are not only just educational but they can even be fine faking street shuttered businesses empty playgrounds the images of this covert nineteen pandemic are hard for even adults to process but for kids like four year old alley and five year old Adriana Alfano seeing people wearing masks is perhaps the most jarring it they just I was really strange a new normal forcing families like the L. fan I was to have some tough conversations it does open up both a big can of worms and a lot of different questions public face covering now recommended by the CDC for adults and children ages two and up how do you think the imagery of people wearing masks can affect kids well initially when kids see someone wearing a mask depending on what they associate it with before it could bring up some beer new dad and entrepreneur Trevor George and his wife Morgan wanted to help ease that anxiety we believe that in order to solve this everyone has to do their part Michigan based teacher company struggling when the pandemic hit economy it had the two created mass club issues like it has to be a way you can help and work with your branch at the same time retiring more than fifty percent of their furloughed employees or adults with a lot of characters like hello Kitty Wonder Woman Batman and Superman we have an eight month old and when my wife and I put on our Batman or Wonder Woman masks he reaches for the colors that has a familiar logo can help your child more east club a passion project with added and for every mass that's purchased we donate a medical grade version two first responders in partnership with the first responders children's need and creating a bright spot family having some fun some levity and then mixing them with information Trevor says that they have donated nearly one hundred thousand masks already any clearly this idea of wearing a branded logo mask and also doing some good while you're in the process of that is really resonate yeah it's a win win I was even saying I know kids it's scary to them it's scary to me sometimes when you see people because it is jarring seeing circle in masks all of a sudden what tools can parents use when they talk about this with their children well doctor Taylor says it's important to impress upon your kids that they're taking care of themselves they're taking care of others this is a safety precaution just like wearing a helmet when you ride a bike or buckling your seat belt when you're in the car and she also says that it's important to have these honest conversations with your kids just be up front with them lead by example when you're comfortable wearing your own mask children see that and they're more at ease as well makes sense and kids are certainly resilient aerial thank you so much for bringing us this we appreciate it for gonna turn out to Dr Jen Ashton for some thoughts on this for some perspective here I mean we have to remember it was just recently that the CDC made a major change of revising their guidelines recommending face coverings for the general public not to protect the person wearing the mask but to protect others so as the saying we're so used to hearing here in New York City it's not about me it's about a week but here's the interesting thing from a medical and scientific standpoint remember that the data on face coverings or masks protecting you was done in a lab right that's why we say in a hospital setting we put masks on sick people with a different kind of mask on health care workers but there's a big difference between scientific research done in a lab setting and those done in a real life setting so we're seeing one of major Boston Medical Center has dropped the rate of its staff cases of covert nineteen dramatically once they instituted a policy where everyone staff patients and visitors started wearing masks so we'll see how it plays out in our country Dr Ashton thank you and when we come back the army of volunteers in one city working hard to help frontline heroes shine these special continues after this about half of all men will experience ET or PT fact both E.

most of us have been out to eat today restaurants in Georgia we're allowed to open for dine in service as the state continues to loosen coronavirus restrictions Tennessee's re opening retail stores Kentucky's re openings of health care services dog groomers can reopen in Wisconsin we're corona virus has hit harder it's different the governor of New Jersey said today restrictions continue indefinitely and the governor of New York said he expected to extend them for the city and its suburbs but the lunch crowd came back in parts of Georgia as our affiliate WSB found a chance to eat inside a restaurant Kim Kucera says this Brookhaven waffle house was her first choice the family hang out we are talking about the whole field in this family in the champ wasn't here this day but the company says no matter who walks in some things haven't changed they're going to get that welcome the waffle house the greeting that we're all excited to be able to give them for when they come in it'll be very clear where they can and cannot said company spokesperson in Gerry boss showed us the big red tape strapped across some of the books and some of the schools are also off limits to maintain safe social distancing the cooks and servers are all wearing masks and X. marks the spot where you can stand as you wait for a seat some don't like governor camp's decision to allow restaurants like this to re open their dining rooms but boss believes many of the critics may be able to work from home while still collecting a paycheck to say that when they still have all of those things we want to be here to make sure that everybody who wants to go and have the opportunity to can take care of themselves and their family that's the American way as for Kim cassette as she feels comfortable eating inside says there's a sense of home here and it all starts off with waffle house what can't get any more American the waffle house right many will never feel comfortable venturing out or re opening a business without a vaccine and most experts think that's at least a year away some scientists are considering rather unconventional ways to speed up the process one of them raises some moral questions we're joined by Dr Angela Baldwin of Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx is also part of our medical team here at ABC news Dr Baldwin this method involves injecting healthy adults with live coronavirus correct so this is called a challenge trial where healthy adults are divided into two groups one group received a placebo and the other group receives the potential vaccine but both groups are injected with the virus and the point is for them to for researchers to see how effective the vaccine is against the virus and this kind of speed up the timeline because normally in a normal situation what somebody receives a vaccine the researchers just have to kind of wait for that person to naturally be infected with whatever virus or disease that the vaccines intended to treat is it the only way to do this definitely not this normally vaccine trials go through three phases phase one phase to help determine the specific dosing that safe and then you know an overall kind of safety of the vaccine and then in phase three is when they do these large very large trials for the enroll thousands of patients and a half receive the vaccine the other half isn't but then they just kind of track them and follow them throughout their daily lives and see okay all this group you know they were exposed to the virus and it looks like the vaccine worked the problem is these are just very long and then kind of a bit cumbersome and so that's why some researchers are proposing this challenge trial the kind of by pass phase three doesn't raise any moral dilemmas definitely a moral dilemmas they do try to mitigate the risk but the fact of the matter is we are taking otherwise healthy adults and injecting them with a virus that could have serious consequences including death the other side they do try to mitigate the risks they would only be enrolling healthy adult volunteers without underlying medical conditions but the problem is we do know that unfortunately there are young people who are still dying from call the nineteen you may also not have any underlying conditions there's still so much we don't know that just makes it's completely unsafe and the other problem is if somebody does get very sick you know we're dealing with a health care crisis right now work the critical care that one may need may not always be readily available and resources may be scarce so to inject somebody of the virus and the potentially kill them and put them in a situation where they urgently need critical care that might not be available raises a few eyebrows from from office I guess it's tempting though when everyone wants the vaccine this seems like the speediest way you know if they could and and one of the questions we ask ourselves is how much does this speed up the the normal course of us finding a vaccine right so if it only speeded up by one month maybe not that great of an idea of the speeded up by six months eight months okay maybe but also the thing to realize is that the challenge trials only one part of a of a two step process these researchers are suggesting would replace phase three so you still have the challenge of trial where the people are given the live virus but then in the second part they would need to test the vaccine on the most vulnerable members of the population right the elderly people under my medical conditions these are the people who really need the vaccine so we need to make sure it's safe in them so during the second phase they would give each of those types of people the vaccine but they would not be injecting them with the with the virus so that means we still in this kind of things were waiting for these people to in the natural course of their days be exposed to the virus so it's really not short meaning that the for the third phase by that much if you think about it who's going to decide ultimately you know that's a very good question I think ultimately we have these things called internal review boards RBC and they are designed to look out for the welfare of participants in subjects in studies and I think it's basically going to fall on the individual IRB's to decide whether or not they're going to allow this to to commission their institution Dr Angela Baldwin of the ABC news medical unit while the world waits for a vaccine all of us adapt to new routines out of our offices and working from say the kitchen table firms are now debating how and whether to repopulate offices small workers are deciding whether they're comfortable taking off the sweat pants and putting back on the suit consumer minute vices law firm said soy Hauser group you joins us from Chicago we're all kind of getting used to this aren't we yes you know I think this is going better than many law firms thought it would technology working well generally people are productive at home some people even like it what's not to like you can be in your pajamas and still accomplish the same kind of work you know in a candid moment a lot of lawyers would probably tell you that and I think that there is upside for both lawyers and for firms to do that the flexibility is something the people of wanted since before the crisis in some law firms before the crisis we're taking small steps towards being more flexible about where people worked and they saw upside both in attracting talent who wanted to be working where they were comfortable where they were where it was convenient also for the law firms there's a big expense of course on the real estate side real estate for most law firms is their second biggest expense behind paying lawyers so they're interested long term many law firms are in using less space why would any firm go back to renting expensive space again if this is working it's that's a great question different firms are different so some firms before the crisis we're happy to move towards less space and I think that the crisis will accelerate the move towards less space for those firms other firms the before the crisis had a culture of being in the office together they placed a premium on facetime and I think after the crisis some of those firms will revert to form and they will want to be in the office more so there will be some that accelerate towards work at home more and take on less space and I think others will want to snap back to how they were previously law firms like many other firms can be notoriously inflexible though about people's time has the shortest that it can work differently I think that this crisis has proven that actually can work pretty well for many lawyers in many firms different lawyers have practices that lend themselves to working remotely so for example a lawyer who needs to appear in court or take depositions in person that doesn't work as well remotely of course others though K. and worked quite productively from anywhere and that works for the firm in for their clients when you ask people what the impediments are to remote working some of the things that come up are things like whether working remotely as an impediment to mentoring opportunities for young and up and coming lawyers they asked about whether working remotely as an impediment to a training those lawyers and they also ask about whether working remotely is an impediment to collaborating together and so some firms will find ways to address those impediments and work around them others will feel the need to be a person more often Kent Zimmerman a principle that's only because our group joining us from Chicago coming

C. news correspondent Amy Robach and with me now is ABC chief medical correspondent Dr Jen Ashton and there is some big news about colleges and universities considering re opening in the fall let's go through this systematically how it would work well first of all I mean we have to acknowledge is a complex situation in the health and safety of not just this population but the entire college and university community is obviously priority number one but here are some things that we know at this point medically we know that the college age group is at a lower risk of severe covert nineteen disease we also know that in this age group and in this environment social distancing is definitely going to be uniquely challenging and we also know that there are people in these communities whether they're college students with pre existing medical conditions or the staff or faculty that worked in and around colleges that could be vulnerable and may be at higher risk as well what options should be considered well I think there are some theories that are worth really exploring the first thing is is can we modify the timing of the spacing some of the classroom activities some of the other activities they shouldn't be looked at like an all or none decision in terms of sports theatre dormitory dining all of those things could be modified it's not an all or one situation and we have to remember that masks once the CDC recommended that for the general public they may be a key tool in reducing the transmission of this virus in the college communities from a health standpoint what do we still need to figure out well look luckily we have a little bit of time to do this but I think there is still a lot of things we don't know where to begin with we don't know what the role of rapid testing on a college campus can look like we don't know whether to college students and whether our kids will actually be compliant with some of the social distancing measures and we really don't know when you talk about risks which is worse right now going back to college in some way shape or form or take taking another year plus and not going back you both have to weigh those risks head to head and it's not an easy answer all right Dr Jenna you're sticking around to answer questions in just a bit in the meantime we turn out A. B. C.'s kera Phillips in Washington DC with the latest headlines for us hi Amy well these are some of the stories that were watching plans to re open the economy are taking shape in a number of states restaurants in Atlanta starting up again with new rules in place for diners today including tables six feet apart and servers wearing masks and in New Jersey governor Phil Murphy is unveiling what he calls responsible re opening driven by quote data science and common sense and Texas governor Greg Abbott also detail in the plan for ending his statewide stay at home orders and re emerging for the first time today after pretty brutal bout of the virus British prime minister Boris Johnson apologizing for being away for three weeks and warning it's too soon to end the locked down in the U. K. speaking outside number ten Downing Street Johnson says we are now beginning to turn the tide on this disease but says he refuses to throw away the public's effort and sacrifice by relaxing the lockdown too soon thank you well the mayor of Las Vegas made headlines last week when she volunteered the city as a control group to see if social distancing is working joining us now to talk about how and when Las Vegas will reopen as Clark County commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick welcome commissioner and I want to first start by asking how you feel about mayor Goodman's comments well I don't agree with her you know my colleagues and I who oversee the beautiful Las Vegas Strip bill that we have to our highest priority needs to be the health and safety of not only our residents we work on this trip but the visitors who come to visit us yeah and that said the mayor also feels hotels casinos restaurants should reopen right now when do you think they should reopen and what will the economic impact three well we've been working every single day with our medical experts across the state a resort association are McCarron airport and the convention that's already so we are working in that direction testing is the key to getting us back open and we are in the middle of expanding that testing opportunities so we will open only when it's safe and we have the most stringent priorities and policies in place can you talk a little bit about specifically how the county is working with the casinos there and other businesses to prevent another outbreak when you do eventually re open well I thought back to we we have been successfully doing social doesn't change we are ramping up casting today we can do up to two thousand tests today we anticipate by June first being able to ten thousand task our hotel partners and our airports they're making some adjustments so that our visitors bilberry see it coming back and that is our priority and we'll invite everybody back when we feel that we can meet those and do you do you how do you feel the people of Clark County are doing in terms of doing that social distancing and following the guidelines you know we're doing a great job every single day we look at different ways I mean even as we bring back our own stops we have to think about how do we have that social distancing and the grocery stores we have lines out for running grocery lines one way I'm so I I'm very proud of what we're doing in our community on the social distancing face while commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick we know it's a tough job thank you for leading the people who use Sir we appreciate your time today thank you get back to work some schools may still be close so where do we go from there the CEO of childcare provider bright horizons Stephen Kramer is here to tell us and Stephen thanks for being with us I know that you have locations daycare locations across the country how many of your facilities remain open so we have a hundred and fifty centers here across the United States that are continuing to be operational and are clearly working under covert nineteen protocols yeah that is pretty surprising I think for a lot of us and and I'm sure so helpful to so many who need your facilities how are you able to keep them open safely absolutely so first and foremost we are focused on those hundred and fifty centers on providing care for essential workers most typically healthcare workers in so first and foremost we are really focused on that particular population in terms of keeping our staff as well as children safe we have implemented processes and procedures in conjunction with a medical expert Dr Kristen Moffett from Boston children's hospital whereby we are ensuring that we are able to keep children safe keep staff safe and really make sure that we are operating both from hygiene perspective as well as from a safety perspective really in an appropriate way so hundred fifty centers open right now what changes will need to be implemented though when day cares fully open back up yes so I I think families can expect a number of changes from what they experience prior to the pandemic also examples include pick up and drop off so often times they will be seen either staggered pick up and drop offs or alternatively it may be curbside pick up and drop off I think certainly I health checks either being asked to be done at home or being done at the centre when they arrive is an important element of keeping everyone safe in addition to that the teachers they will be wearing masks when when families returned and certainly in the bright horizons centers that are open today our teachers are wearing masks also those are the kinds of things they might expect in addition to enhanced hygiene protocols yeah it's Stephen is there anything parents can do now to be prepared for what's to come I think there are things that parents can be doing I think first and foremost it's really important for parents to make sure that they are checking the health of their child each morning and each and every day to make sure that they are not bring their child if they have any sign or symptom of a health issue I think in addition to that children won't be used to the teachers wearing masks that's not something that they would have experienced previously and so my recommendation would be to as a parent start wearing masks around the house start to educate your child that heroes wear masks and certainly the teachers in the centers are heroes and so experiencing and exposing them to that concept is important and then finally I would encourage pet parents to prepare themselves they need to have a little bit of extra patience and I would encourage them to show appreciation for the teachers who are working tirelessly through both now and in the future in the child care center environment I think so many parents are home right now have a absolute renewed appreciation of teachers and I love what you said heroes wear masks that's awesome Stephen Kramer thank you so much for being with us today we appreciate it thank you for having me UP next right here those masks are suddenly everywhere and officials say it's a good idea but the sight of them can frighten our children some techniques for helping them deal when we come back this can be seen news special continues after this eleven eleven thirty

S. B. latest news and talk listening to an ABC news special Kobe nineteen what you need to know once again here is ABC news correspondent Amy Robach new questions every day about this pandemic emergency Dr Jen Ashton is back with us with some answers to your questions and Dr Jenn we've got our first question I have a family member who needs to fly for work are there any other safety measures besides gloves and masks that you would recommend that is really the most important for the passenger you can try to plan the time of that travel maybe to lower peak hours if that's possible but what's interesting about travel is that some degree of travel is not gonna be optional or elective in the near future so we're starting to see as we've heard before airlines start to play around with how they can help reduce the risk so again cover your mouth and nose clean your hands and for now as an individual that's the best you can do all right our next question our sinus drainage and post nasal drip possible symptoms of cold at nineteen even without a fever interesting because we're hearing the CDC revise the symptom less straight they added six symptoms to cope in nineteen he used to be fever cough shortness of breath now they've extended it to body aches headache loss of smell taste sore throat even headache but here's the important thing with the post nasal drip and allergies we are an allergy season and as I always say you can have more than one thing at a time so yes it's possible that you could have a mild case of cobit and allergies and one of the new symptoms the CDC added was a sore throat so again above the neck symptoms it is possible and I'm sure we're gonna be seeing that list of symptoms get expanded in the future next question I'm a college professor recovering from coded nineteen and I'm struggling with sudden loss of secondary language fluency has there been any research on cognitive impairments related to cope with nineteen no formal research and data out yet Amy but you can imagine how frightening that would be if you start to notice these we you and I've talked here about neurologic manifestations to cove in nineteen there have been reports in the medical literature of people presenting with headache seizure dizziness loss and smell and taste are neurologic symptoms so cognitive function we may see that certainly and seriously cove in nineteen patients who have been in and I see you that's to be expected but we'll we'll hope that those things return back to normal okay next question we've been talking a lot about pregnancy this one about new moms is it safe to vaccinate babies or give booster MMR shots without testing them for cove in nineteen any expected complications like fever or anything else a couple of things with this because it's really important for the American academy of pediatrics talk about the risks of delaying infant immunizations in the setting of the covert nineteen pandemic number one fever is a possibly a good reaction of our body to anything whether it's a vaccination for exposure to something like Kobe right now pediatricians offices are not testing babies for cove it before they administer routine I mean ations but that may change in the future and we have to remember those immunizations are important so any concerns really want the parents to talk to the pediatrician all right great advice as always Dr Jan thank you and if you have questions for Dr Ashton you can submit them on her Instagram at Dr J. Ashton will masks and face coverings have become such a familiar sight around the country in this corona virus pandemic with a number of states now requiring them during visits to essential businesses and on public transportation but the sight of them can be scary especially for children A. B. C.'s Ariel Russia has more on what you can do to help lessen their anxiety Hey there any as you know kids can ask some pretty tough questions and this can actually be scary for them as you mention when they see people out there wearing masks they see their parents wearing masks but experts say there are ways to help them adapt to this new normal and some of them are not only just educational but they can even be fine faking street shuttered businesses empty playgrounds the images of this covert nineteen pandemic are hard for even adults to process but for kids like four year old alley and five year old Adriana Alfano seeing people wearing masks is perhaps the most jarring it they just I was really strange a new normal forcing families like the L. fan I was to have some tough conversations it does open up both a big can of worms and a lot of different questions public face covering now recommended by the CDC for adults and children ages two and up how do you think the imagery of people wearing masks can affect kids well initially when kids see someone wearing a mask depending on what they associate it with before it could bring up some beer new dad and entrepreneur Trevor George and his wife Morgan wanted to help ease that anxiety we believe that in order to solve this everyone has to do their part Michigan based teacher company struggling when the pandemic hit economy it had the two created mass club issues like it has to be a way you can help and work with your branch at the same time retiring more than fifty percent of their furloughed employees or adults with a lot of characters like hello Kitty Wonder Woman Batman and Superman we have an eight month old and when my wife and I put on our Batman or Wonder Woman masks he reaches for the colors that has a familiar logo can help your child more east club a passion project with added and for every mass that's purchased we donate a medical grade version two first responders in partnership with the first responders children's need and creating a bright spot family having some fun some levity and then mixing them with information Trevor says that they have donated nearly one hundred thousand masks already any clearly this idea of wearing a branded logo mask and also doing some good while you're in the process of that is really resonate yeah it's a win win I was even saying I know kids it's scary to them it's scary to me sometimes when you see people because it is jarring seeing circle in masks all of a sudden what tools can parents use when they talk about this with their children well doctor Taylor says it's important to impress upon your kids that they're taking care of themselves they're taking care of others this is a safety precaution just like wearing a helmet when you ride a bike or buckling your seat belt when you're in the car and she also says that it's important to have these honest conversations with your kids just be up front with them lead by example when you're comfortable wearing your own mask children see that and they're more at ease as well makes sense and kids are certainly resilient aerial thank you so much for bringing us this we appreciate it for gonna turn out to Dr Jen Ashton for some thoughts on this for some perspective here I mean we have to remember it was just recently that the CDC made a major change of revising their guidelines recommending face coverings for the general public not to protect the person wearing the mask but to protect others so as the saying we're so used to hearing here in New York City it's not about me it's about a week but here's the interesting thing from a medical and scientific standpoint remember that the data on face coverings or masks protecting you was done in a lab right that's why we say in a hospital setting we put masks on sick people with a different kind of mask on health care workers but there's a big difference between scientific research done in a lab setting and those done in a real life setting so we're seeing one of major Boston Medical Center has dropped the rate of its staff cases of covert nineteen dramatically once they instituted a policy where everyone staff patients and visitors started wearing masks so we'll see how it plays out in our country Dr Ashton thank you and when we come back the army of volunteers in one city working hard to help frontline heroes shine these special continues after this about half of all men will experience ET or PT fact both E.

"We were outside with the leaf blower and Trying to clean leaves up and just start getting things ready for you. Know which stuff you know wanting to do? And I've had to put off because last week I was. You know despite all this stuff going around. I was a little bit under the weather. I lost my voice for about four days. I'm still kinda crackling a little bit so you'll have to forgive me on that. I'm sure I'm sure we understand that. And but you know we've been trying to stay busy and you know trying to make the best of it here at home and we're just waiting. I was eligible to file for unemployment. But I still haven't got a you know a determination yet. Even though they said it would be rushed through because of trump. But you think about it. They went from six or seven thousand unemployment cases in the state of Ohio. Over what two hundred thousand. Oh yeah its own. I mean so. Is there way bogged down so I? I'm fortunate I have money in the bank live on. You know we're okay but you know we're just kind of waiting to see what happens so young you know. And that's why I think we're kind of just holding pattern here so that's kind of how it's affected us. You know tomorrow. The kids go back to school. But you know of course we're going to be doing a homeschooling distance-learning as they're calling it here in Cairo to fall. So they're going to be online tomorrow doing their online classes tomorrow. Disisto they can continue doing your schoolwork so we're all kind of re we're kind of adjusting but it's just it's taking it's a it's a big adjustment. We're kind of easing into it. A little bit yeah. I I've been very lucky my hours over I have my own business then I also I work in a Marketing Department for very large nonprofit here in town and now my overall between those two things lot less. I'm doing a lot less than what I was but between working at home and other things that I can do I still squeeze out some hours right and that helps My wife is in in the medical profession. So she's busy and She here again. She can work from home a lot as well. So we've been very lucky. In that regard life is not. My career is has a lot of big things that I was working on got put on hold and I'm not happy about that. But in comparison with I have a lot of friends who are bartenders servers and some of them are very successful. Same here and and other down to zero man bright. I don't know that this this stimulus pash package man. You got real big bills coming. Twelve hundred dollars at best is is really not a whole lot. Twelve hundred dollars isn't make a dent in my bills. I mean let's be honest. You know I spot a house last last fall twelve hundred dollars court my mortgage so which is just kind of give you an idea. They're like I said I am lucky in that standpoint have always been really good with my money. I'll always save my money so just in case of emergency. You know I've got you know I get a good amount of money still in the bank. It's not GonNa last forever but you know at some point. I'm probably have to do something you know. Just maybe even go Do maybe do some food deliver something on the side. Just a few extra dollars just to kind of help. Ease things a little bit. Sure I. I'm not spending anywhere what I'd normally would spend because we're not going out the we're not going to do going here. We're not doing all these things for entertainment for the kids. So just K- guys we're home watch. Tv Play Games. Do whatever I mean not been. We're fortunate but at the same time you know I'm looking at my bottom line going. Okay this it's GONNA be a tough couple months here but we're actually sure but we'll make it will make it just just kind of you know. Justin your priorities a little bit making some changes and I guess that I'm been one of the lucky ones. I've been smart when Save my money over the years. So we're okay but you know I look. I look at that savings gone and I was coming off of a couple of bad years there for a while. I was a caregiver took care of my mom. My Mom's general clean me out and I was just getting you know on level ground and and now here again. I'm just scraping for hours every week. So that kind of leads us into what's going on in society right now as I mentioned America for the most part had it very easy when it comes to catastrophes in the last century for we have not had a foreign enemies hitting our beaches We haven't had to worry about our kids stepping on land mines on the way to school and It's been one thousand nine hundred nineteen eighteen cents. We have had something like this happen. Have the flu Pan Account. Yes yes and not that. We are to that point yet. But let's just say okay. This is this is one of the few times even with nine eleven as bad as it was. We don't worry about buses exploding everyday like some countries no for the most part. Oh yeah and for the most part we have a population. That's very comfortable. And we worry about our rights to spit on the sidewalk and all this other stuff and now the sudden we're being told we have to stay home and it might get worse. There is a possibility it could get worse. And when people hold up China and say well the the viruses already subsiding insight in China which is true. The caveat to that though is that the Chinese government clamped down on their population. In a way. That would not would not go over very well here. No okay I mean. They hit everybody indoors. They were spraying the streets with all kinds of disinfectant. And when the Chinese government tells you to stay in menas. Oh yeah they mean stay in. Yeah and so our. I'm kind of concerned if this goes on. Let's say for example What they're dealing with in Italy happens in our population. Which is how many times Greater God? You could be dealing with morgues being overloaded. You could be dealing with bodies in homes. You could be dealing with all kinds of things and at that point. When does martial law come in branch here again when we're telling the people when we're talking about the public and we're trying to make them understand that there has to be a balancing act there has to be you know there's a public safety issue in you're GONNA have to give up some of your rights? But then there's the other side of that argument which is very legitimate. That says once you start giving up your rights. It's hard to get them back exactly so here again. It's it's a very delicate balancing act. Is that something you've discussed with your family and friends? Or how do you feel about that? Well the thing you know. We've we've lost a lot of our rights to you know we can't congregate in groups more than ten even in your own home right now. I mean that's you know there's a big huge civil liberty freedom gone you can't you can't have. I'm seeing you know. I'm looking articles of people that died where they have their funerals speaking. Well they can have. They can have a celebration but keeping it limited family you know just immediately and can have the big funeral like you know someone wanted for say. That's one thing weddings and I'm supposed to be getting married in June. We've had a push our wedding back to August. How because of the venue we were wholly at this. So we're going to be closing our doors now whole a later date solicit. Okay if you want to move it back to August. We'll we'll play it by ear on that okay. Great you know is far as some freedoms in one thing you know folks. We haven't really lucky we could still go to the grocery stores. Yeah we could still go get gas to still drive your car and go here. Go get food yet sucks. You can't go and sit and enjoy a restaurant like he used to or go to the bar and meet with buddies right now but right you know we still have at least enough freedom to actually say okay. I want to go out and take a walk. I'm going to go here. We're GONNA after I get done with this interview. I want to take my dogs. We have four dogs. We're GONNA take them for a walk in the park you know. We have those freedoms yes and. I'm very thankful we have those freedoms but you know the fact that we lost some freedoms for public safety. I mean I I get it. I mean I observer of life I things. I get the reasoning the same time. I Go God you know. Kinda wondering with you. I mean one. Do we get some of these freedoms back. I know the president's talking about trying to have the company or excuse me the government and have the economy going again by Easter. I don't see that happening. You know that it's going to be unlikely. It's going to be very unlikely because you know we can set our own timeline great but this virus really does dictate the timeline is. How am I going to be folks until we really clamped down and say okay? Everyone stay in. Let's not go anywhere. I think it's we're still going to spread this thing for a while to come and then there's talk about this thing's GonNa get better when it warms up. Well they got cases down in Australia. And it's in the nineties there so I I don't see how you know if it's still thriving there and eighty ninety degree weather. How is it going to get any better? When the United States gets eighty and ninety? I don't I don't see the logic there at this point just seeing what I'm seeing off. It was all agree. You know in the northern here. Okay it's still cold in his fifty sixty seventies in striving okay. But you're still seeing this outlast California at Los Angeles San Francisco. Those are parts of the country.

GonNa get better and I don't see it getting better. He taps soon young. I'm not sure what the what the weather's like in Italy this time of year. But that it it doesn't strike me as a place that gets particularly cold.

"When are their own and do not necessarily reflect the views of this station or its management or Beasley media group right now his story from his perspective the card instead of five on your Friday did you set your weekend here in Las Vegas it is the Vegas take one one point five FM seven twenty AM K. don also streaming live at at our you tube channel you can find it at the Vegas taking you can also catch us on I heart radio as well too as we are discussing the corona viruses impact nationwide as well as here in the state of Nevada and of course here in the city of Las Vegas president trump is going to have a press conference at noon Pacific time three o'clock eastern time is expected to declare a state of emergency and I'm sure a lot of Americans are hoping that he discusses the situation as far as testing for covert nineteen and exactly how it works going to accelerate that because dot the doctor you talked about this yesterday said this should be the main priority is we should be accelerating the availability of testing out there across the country because we don't have a grasp on the situation yet and that's why there is so much anxiety use the word panic use the word you know confusion out there is because people just don't know what is going on here a lot of times when we have dire situations whether it's a tragedy whether it's nine eleven whether it's any other type of situation that is similar to this there's usually some time frame right there's usually some way we know when it's going to end or about when it's going to end not the case right now we are in limbo as Americans we don't understand how long this is going to last and so when you see things happening like it happened last couple days with all the cancellations and all the postponements and things being affected drastically in American life in American society people are worried and rightfully so as we don't know what to expect we don't know how long it's gonna last people been using timeframes like thirty days a month and a half two months you know we don't know how long it's going to take in and exactly what we're dealing with here also your thoughts and your opinions of seven oh two two five seven five three nine six is the phone number I want to kind of jump back towards the van you Vegas angle on this and coming up the bottom the hour be talking with a licensed sex worker Alice little from the moonlight bunny ranch out of over Nye county and the impact on the industry but here in Las Vegas make no mistake about it we're going to get hit hard and the spreading front of ours has sparked financial shock waves not not just here in the in Las Vegas but across the globe at a speed that just unbelievable and you got stark market market plunges and you know of course as I mentioned waves of cancellation of events and other closures but southern Nevada is no different there and you know Las Vegas welcomes more than forty million visitors a year here our lifeblood is the Las Vegas Strip yes we are a city now that has all types of amenities and in many ways Las Vegas is a normal city but we all understand that being the entertainment capital world being the gaining capital of the world still this is so much surrounds Las Vegas Strip and you had at least seven team Las Vegas conferences comprising an estimated two hundred and ninety thousand plus combined visitors had been canceled or postponed as of Thursday this is the life blood of Las Vegas okay N. as someone who has worked and does work on the Las Vegas Strip in hospitality establishments it's something that's going to get felt then you're gonna see it all around you and it's going to test our resolve without question and the NCAA basketball term again canceled known as March madness the event is a financial boon for Las Vegas gamblers betting an estimated three hundred and forty six point six million dollars on the tournament in Nevada sports books last March and it's not just the NCAA tourney we're talking about all sports being next across the board for at least probably thirty days that's the reality and it's an astounding number to think about and yes you want to be glass half full here right you want to have a positive outlook but the fact of matter is we have to face that it could be thirty days or more where we don't have the life blood of what we usually have your Las Vegas not just sports it shows that are on the strip are canceling venues music venues that have you know that it whether whether it's not it's a concert or basically running shows are being canceled the Las Vegas Strip where people people are being told not to go anywhere yeah it is not to do anything I actually was one of those people who said yesterday so Hey you know let's protect those who are at risk you're not do anything but if you really think about that Chris can you tell me one person who has died from this virus was perfectly healthy I can't I can't tell you that I can't either I don't think people are saying you can't go anywhere Gee I think that right now as it stands with you know governor Sisolak and our approach here in Las Vegas it is Chris we don't want large venues we don't want you don't know JT we don't want to have places where there's you know a hundred to five hundred to two hundred that's been with us a couple thousand people and that's you know it's like this you know beat we can still but they're not I I don't anticipate and I could be wrong with the way the how fluid the situation is I could be wrong but I don't anticipate that really shutting down all restaurants all bars all banks all you know law offices all groceries I don't I'm not but but by default if those places are not frequented they will shut themselves down they will lay off their employees know regardless yeah I happen across the country you're you're in a lot of and I'm gonna bring up bring up Omaha again but Omaha is number one in the country and bars per capita right and restaurants per capita and if people are frequenting those restaurants in those bars those places are going belly up a lot of those places are over leveraged through banks so you have a lot of that taking place and can actually destroy economies in Las Vegas is one of those live entertainment in it live entertainment economies I'm not talking about MGM or the big dogs I'm talking about open up incoming bars or restaurants or mom and pop bars restaurants that rely on kids but that that have you know a solid fan base and a good reputation that rely on consistent business that have staff there the those people just by default it does matter if bars are shut down an event or not which I don't think they will be or even across United States I don't think they will be but by default those businesses are going to basically shut themselves down because not gonna have that the traffic they need it to survive your thoughts on the impact the corona virus will have here in the short term here in Las Vegas at seven oh two two five seven five three nine six your call short takes greatly appreciated let's go to phone lines Chuck joins us now you're the biggest J. chuckle really pretty she is spend some time are you Hey what's up Hey Chris so all of the pandemic up up in the regular flu is not pandemic in that usually six months long and just in the U. S. they're already been twelve thousand deaths and three hundred thirty one million symptoms and then three hundred seventy thousand hospitalized that's his from the CDC yeah this is a thing Chuck light at six hundred fifty thousand no I'm well aware of the number so I don't I don't I look I'm not a document that will you ask you how could you you have to get the test well you ask US a question I'm an answer I'm not a doctor but I anticipate that the answer the question to be that we have ways to deal with the flu right we have certain things that we can that we can take and and and it's not at all though yes we do the numbers you pointed out look all up you know there are higher way higher numbers of people that died from the flu every year I also I also way more allows and laundered to more people one of the biggest issues with this is that was a lot a lot of wealth in this company or this country lies between the ages of fifty to eighty years old and a lot of the people that are at risk are very very wealthy and there is eight and I will not and I think they're they're they're just the older population yes and and and elderly people are are more are more likely to have more money than a younger population was your professional athlete or something on the ball that's it I'm sure it's possible I don't understated money I think that is being handed out should be taken into consideration also Chris the case up to a two hundred fifty now in the states yeah that's are still forty one I I don't get that said yes to Chuck I mean not we understand it the numbers on the flu but eat but it's in prodigy brought it up this is a novel virus right this is something that's new so that's why we're addressing it it's not and and that's why I think there's a lot of people out there that are mice the average Joe the average Jane that that's not a medical doctor they just see it come in and we're just not in it and we're not familiar with it so that's why I think there's a lot of fear out there the phone call what what really move the needle in and in the wrong direction for basically everything is when Tom Hanks and Rudy go bear and also an NBA all star and the untouchable the untouchable you know America's favorite actor Tom Hanks came down with the virus I think that really really change perspective of a lot of people and created that that widespread panic also when the diamond princess was sued because now if these if these events take place and someone files a wrongful death lawsuit and they have to answer that that could be an issue to see if you look at all these different angles that are that are making these things happen the way they are but again what I think should be happening is you identify the high risk group and you isolate them for everyone else because again Chris we we we we could be here all three of us to have the disease and we could have a lot of very mild symptoms got kicked virus in twenty days and not even know it jumping out of social why should our entire lives be completely just flipped upside down and why should the economy suffer greatly in the process of that when you when all you can really do is isolate the group's just make sure the and protect them to the best of your abilities from getting the virus well the reason why is because you know there's a pandemic in because that you know that if they did we don't it's not necessary a connection between money and encouraging and that we're not we're not I'm not all right we're we're gonna you know because we're gonna lose so much money we're just not we're not.

An Interview with Jim Host, Author of 'Changing the Game'

"About to introduce Jim Jim host to the audience who book changing the game. And I don't know if the gym host even remembers but When I was a newspaper reporter I thought of a great idea for a profile of talking about one of the great entrepreneurs in the SEC. Someone who created the Kentucky Broadcast Network and then moved onto the AA. But for whatever reason Jim Oh just did not like Google doing interviews back then and I never even asked him why because it's irrelevant but thank you. Thank you very much Jim for for joining us. And congratulations on the book. Paul thank you very much before we start. I want to say that You meant so much to Mike slide. And he was like a close friend of mine and we had several conversations. But you and job. You did the eulogy at his. Fennel is something. I'll never forget so. I just wanted to make sure that I got that cost. Jim Thank you. Thank you very much For saying that I remember talking to you at the graveside and I know how much you meant to commissioner slot as well well thank you for that and let let me let me start at the beginning for those. Who Don't know your fister who haven't had a chance to read your book you. You're a baseball player. Uk and then you went onto a minor league ball. And I'm sure you've wondered what would have happened. Had you matriculated to the big leagues and had a different career. Well I got one of the first to pull baseball. Scholarships every given at UK. And I'm the first person I've got sixty one first cousins and I'm the first one on either side of my family ever to go to college and I would have never gotten the college that had been for the athletic scholarship at UK and as it was all of that by major radio and television journalism and the rest of its history so there is an example of somebody. You've got a college scholarship who Because he blew his arm out and pro. Baseball couldn't continue on it for baseball. Was able then to build a business based on my college education. I'll be forever grateful to University of Kentucky for allowing me to play there as you moved on from from your baseball career You dabbled in a number of things From the political arena to to business I think all of us would be fascinated by how you ended up moving in into the the genre that now you get so much credit for And been given credit by by leaders in the field as one of the if not. We'll forget one of the innovator when it comes to sports marketing well if I was I got the radio rights by asking the question that final four MC. One goal the final four. This one. That's basketball championship in. Nineteen seventy five in San Diego. I was on the floor Uk It got to the finals. And I was doing the UK broadcast with Kayla Leopard Packer and As a result Bias the question. How much bitch will paying for the radio rights and Tom Johnston? They came with round the foreign. They said three thousand dollars. I said well how much you getting? All the rights for people like me and they said twenty one thousand dollars plus Nice of. I'll tell you what I'll give you thirty thousand dollars. I'll take over the administration and I'll do a whole lot better job and that's how I got started just as asking the question at at that point. Nobody really wanted to radio. And then as I started to try to sell the radio I'm standing in front of of the press table and nineteen seventy seven that the championship in in Atlanta One Alma. Choirs last game and One of one of the members of the committee was complaining about how bad the final four the championship program book. Because those years the program was produced by the arena and I stepped around I said. Would you guys like we do that? And they said well you're doing a great job with radio network out one or two do that That's how I started doing programs and and then I had one problem. I really couldn't sell it very well. Because I had no national distribution as it related to sales people so I have spent time with proctor and gamble and learned that that They they had a Cava issue having to do with how they got their packages sold at supermarkets. I'm sorry I came up with a scroll down which turned out to be pretty good about. Why don't we see if we can't Put a MCA championship on So Fox's and on bar soaps and so on and see if we can't create some revenue and that basis and I went to wall virus and made the suggestion. It took them two years to agree that it might make some sense and that's kind of how it started and I love the chapter in the book. When when you're dealing with Walter Byers who was a legendary figure but based on I never met him but based on what I've read he wasn't always the easiest person to make a point across to Paul He. I've been in the Oval Office of every presence that's Nixon. A Nineteen Sixty. I live never been at all of anybody in my life other than Walter. Byers he was the smartest single individual I was ever around He would meet with you one on one he knew more about Your Business and then you did. He had his homework done. He never had a piece of paper in front of them and He and I learned a great deal problem. So that's my analysis of you did so many other things and I know I don't WanNa diminish the body of work but when I read about your involvement in the building of Arena definitely got my attention because it's a building that's been there more than forty years. It's still one of the Meccas of college basketball. How how did how did that? Come about well One of my first the first of all I ran for governor state and got my buddy thank God and And I was going to do it the right way so I wouldn't take any campaign. Contributions I spent all the money I made in the sixties and the real estate and insurance business and Came out of the campaign. Had One hundred seven dollars in my pocket. Looks Seventy six thousand eight hundred eighty seven dollars the campaign? That didn't happen. The income could put my real estate and insurance businesses back together so The mayor and the county judge came to they said We'd like you to be the first executive director the lesson I eventually commission and I said how much does it pay? They said eighteen thousand dollars a year. And I said I'll tell you what you can hire them a company I get to do other things and And the first meeting we add. They said we're gonNA tell you why we are hired you there's a There's a good much tracks through downtown. We've taken they've been taken offline urban renewal and we've got in-kind contribution of twenty percent that if we don't build a civic center on the west end of Bovine Street We've got to pay three million dollars back in the city that have that kind of money so you got to build civic center in the arena. So that's how that got started I wanted stop for just a second and talk about How you've done And maybe some some basic tennis. We talked to a young person our staff who who talked about growing when he went to University of Georgia recently. Everyone wants to go into sports. Marketing. And and that's not really what I want to ask you about to Jim because you wrote in the book about some very basic tenants Simple things that we probably should learn at an early age that that you had certain I would say rules for yourself and for your employees that were as simple as this kind of things we heard as a kid but I wish he would explain and share those with all of us to rules of business one is you do not misrepresent. Lie about anything if you do. You're fired and number two. You do not Take five cents from the expense account. If you do your part everybody that came into business. Understood it and violated. I immediately called him in and fired him They didn't get a second chance. If somebody had a drug problem and I'll call problem. I gave a second chance. I paid for the Rehabilitation GonNa back and in the second chance of the violate that that they were those who are rules and business. I also said that In any guy. I never got sued by any school by any conference by the. Mcaa TAB for one. Reason is that I believe that it's either black or white if it's black that's in their favor of its whites in my favorite. It's great and their favorite and that was on the way. That's the way a random business before you go and I would strongly encourage any any young person who's thinking about getting into this business to read gyms book but but I I would like to ask you about some of the big issues that we're facing today certainly They are countless. But but the one that's front and center is the the name image likeness Situation I know having been an athlete having been involved in sports marketing and the industry at the front a at the front row for so long. What are your thoughts on today? And where we go from here in intercollegiate athletics. I wrote my epilogue at the end of the book that I fully believe that time has come when student athletes need to be compensated for the likeness and people think that this has to do with Just basketball football. It doesn't They've we've we've had some unbelievable track athletes at UK One of whom has gone under set world records Young Woman has gone on set world records. We take great tennis players here We've had other individuals who have done well and they would. They would benefit from this as well. So Mike my contention is that they need to be compensated It needs to be done. Under the under the scope of the university because it media right holder at this point as revenue coming from corporate sponsors. So the way to do it. I believe is to Get The individual Have the university Media Group represents individual have the flow through them have the bunny then put into a separate account and they once the individual graduates or leaves the university the individual gets the money Jim Hosts the name of the book changing the Game Career in collegiate sports marketing. John I cannot thank you enough all the best on the book and it has been all of our pleasure to be able to share with you with our audience. You're you're great knowledge and history. Thank you so much I wanNA make one other point The other they call the fuck Dr Eric. Moyen Is a professor at the University of Talk Miss Up Mississippi State and he's done unbelievably great job.

Group Nine's Geoff Schiller: Legacy media organizations have caught up

"Welcome to the digital podcasts. and Brian Marcy. Today I'm joined by Jeff Schiller Jeff is newly minted. Ciro Groom from nine. Jeff came over from the pump sugar acquisition which just close to a couple of weeks ago a couple of weeks ago. Okay so look. You're part of pop sugar for a while as as an independent entity As a partner like what. What is the potential you see? You know joining forces with group nine and in its portfolio of brands. So it's really interesting. The marriage is such a perfect marriage at a molecular level because the brands pop sugar Seeker Dodo now. This realis- they all have a common theme very optimistic very positive. And that's a through line and so I think just generally speaking that helps for a monetization perspective when we go out to market and we say look our companies bound by optimism. You can kind of think through how one plus one can eagle three so I think on a foundational level. The editorial alignment of saying thrillers. Just wants to help you kind of experience. The unexpected whether it's from food drink or travel or pop sugar wants to help you as a female kind of just explore all the areas that Define you versus versus just being relegated to one bus lifestyle. But then he got now this but now there's a little bit of the outlier right to some extent. I mean the way that I think about. Now this is yes it is news and and News is kind of core to what it started as a couple of years ago but I think as a brand it really reflects the currency in terms of what young people care about which is issues. And so it's it's the Lens in which they consume. It is news but it's really more so for young people issues climate climate change equality etc.. Those are really what define now this and you could argue. Certainly they're potentially depressing stories. That are out there but the lens that there are lots of depressed race out. I try to be an optimist but the Lens. Now this Kind of kind of takes through who These these complex issues to really be positive and hopeful and so it is the most utility driven versus being lifestyle driven but I also again that positive through line kind of makes it easy for us as we think about the future and monetization. So we're we're recording this before the holiday break and then You'll you will be heading off immediately to to see us which I will not be on the genus. Sorry good luck with that but you'll be meeting with lots of different marketers and and stuff like this and this maybe it'll be the first time since the merger went went through Wha what's your like sort of top line message for why they should care. Wise is a good thing for are your partners so I can answer that. Through two lenses one is more from the kind of larger macro conversation that's going on and the other would-be more from a client facing perspective macro wise merger mania. Whatever we called it a lot of these companies got together out of necessity Out of survival and pop sugar and group nine got together because it made sense because it was thought you were going to say that they got together for survival survival. No no no we we. It was not under duress. You had our chief officer Brian. I did And the profitable notable pop sugar kind of playbook and you had group nine the dominant stake in in reaching young people dominant stake in social video. Everything everything came together from a complimentary perspective including Brian and Ben who have known each other for a long time but really through even down to what they're passionate about you know I. It's all super complimentary so I think that on the macro level weren't out liar because we're like I said we'll be a case study for success success in terms of merger mania also because it wasn't done GonNa State of duress okay. Are you talking about refinery. I'm not tired. Whatever are you talking about? I'm not talking about anyone in particular on the client facing side in terms of value. So you have this really big list of of consolidated media companies. The VOX is the old school ones. The Conde's the hearst the meredith the vices the bustle digital groups for us us when we talk about young people. It's number one. We reached them at scale and number two. They spend more time with us than anyone else in the entire competitive set and so that is third party. Syndicated that's not our made up proprietary. Whatever that's com score in terms of actual time spent and attention for us is that at core currency from you know what we think the future cohorts in Gen y Gen Z.? Trade on it's you know. I want to be captivated by something and captivate them more than anyone else in the competitive set so I wanNA push on the scale thing for a little bit. Why is scale still pretty important because a a lot of people have come on this podcast and sort of been like skills dude skills dead and like not really I mean scale drives a lot of this and for what you're talking about You know adding together all these different brands. you're gonNA have a single salesforce right absolutely tech stack single all these sort of things. There's a bunch of efficiencies. I'm sure that come out. Like you know everyone when they announced sees mergers. Try Not to talk about this but like there. It is more efficient. But there's a a lot of advantages to having a bunch of brands under one roof. So I think that nothing's ever truly really new and so you look at the magazine. Zine companies their portfolio of brands. They have the same shared services model. One printing press one back office. There's a reason I mean conde still trying to get there. You're for sure but other other brands. The hearst Meredith Lega those have been in existence for a really long time for a reason because in order to scale you need to have that back office support that isn't replicated across every single brand so there's the economic scale which is shared services and then there's the audience scale. which is you have to be big enough to matter absolutely critical in a world where you have facebook? It's the same narrative facebook and Google and Amazon and target and Walmart Media Group. All of those guys out there. That are huge scale is is is is I guess the way that I frame it upscale is is no longer a lead statement. It's more of a check box right so if you don't check that box then you're going to be in trouble and it's like anything. I mean we keep talking about this and these these different podcasts. Hell the the middle gets gets crunched. And it's easy to fall into to the metal but I mean I guess together. You'd think that you guys are are not in the Middle Lake are are one of the scale players. Oh Yeah No. It's not even a thought it's factual we are number one. Overall in terms of time spent from Com score perspective were number one in terms of social The Olsen Dr Com score both say the same thing so I think within our larger competitive set of all the brands is that I mentioned. We are a clear leader and that competitive set you you think it's not it's not quote unquote just the the the vox is The bustles but it's the the I'm GONNA another quote unquote like the traditional like the hearse. The Conde's absolutely that narrative of them being behind is it in my mind a two year old narrative and I'm not talking about restructuring. I'm talking more so about audiences. They were behind. They looked at digital pure place. Copied their playbook playbook and I think I think they're pretty caught up so we have to consider them a credible threat to our business and to try to take whatever share they have that is legacy and bring it our way.
