"The startup. Qatar was supposed to reinvent construction. It raised more than two billion dollars. Over the last six years to build factories hire thousands of employees and make a slew of acquisitions. Its aim was to create faster methods for building apartments offices and all kinds of buildings. This is wendy. Pollock the information senior editor here with corey. Weinberg who has closely documented katina's rise and fall. Hey corey hello so it. All really came crashing down this week for tara. You broke the news that the company was shutting down. Let me ask the simple question. I what happened. So what happened is a company that had raised at least two billion dollars doesn't really have any any left. That was the message that the company left to employees many of whom they were laying off this week and qatar has been kind of a saga which i have been trying to report on for honestly like four five years now. It's been pretty clear for a really long time. That things were not good at guitar that they was beset by mismanagement and struggling projects and a a lot of issues particularly on do the executive and investor levels and all of that kind of came crashing down in recent months essentially what. The company told employees that that that they had a rapid deterioration of. It's the company's financial position. In part due to covid you know sort of material and labour becoming a lot more expensive. The company also was not able to secure any new debt for the construction projects that they were taking on and they couldn't raise any more capital so just a real host of issues that essentially to this company's demise and as you reported the the company nearly collapsed last year right. So what happened then. Yeah so last. Year was another big year for patera almost this time last year. Essentially the board of directors was voting out guiterrez co founder and ceo. Michael marks. who was really the face of katara. He was this guy in his late sixties. Who had run several. You know sort of major businesses before and was a well known name in silicon valley and marks gave katara A real some real clout but investors realized that he had totally mismanaged the company. They voted him out A new regime came in the company tried to raise even more money to kind of keep it afloat despite the fact that it was losing a ton of money because it was not building apartments for as cheap as they said it would and essentially the reserve just kind of kept kept draining. The company considered chapter eleven bankruptcy last year. They found it up money to keep itself afloat for the time being and of time just sort of ran for them. I think why are people in silicon valley so interested in this company. What did you represent. I think katara represented a major effort to prove the thesis that technology can finally improve the productivity of construction in the us. I think silicon valley has always been really obsessed particularly recently with old line industries. Can it can at disrupt real estate. Candidates dropped healthcare. These really big societal. Problems and construction is one of them i. It's a the fact that it costs so much to build. Housing is one major reason why we have a housing shortage in this country. And qatar was the boldest to say. Hey tech consort of this. So i think that sort of generated a lot of fascination in the company so qatar failed. Does that mean. That construction can't be disrupted. I don't think it means that i mean. There are several notable companies. That are at least taking on different pieces of the construction industry. Maybe they're not quite as much money. Maybe they're just focused on making the current system a tiny bit more efficient. And and maybe they want attract as many headlines as guitar era. But they're still out there you know. I'm thinking of companies like core which they software and essentially priced software company for general contractors. They recently went public. They've had a decade long track record of success and there are a slew of smaller startups trying to take on pieces of this industry. Maybe they're not trying to do the qatari model. Which was essentially due. offsite construction. Do a lot of construction in factories and that was just incredibly expensive like tara had to build out factories all across the country. It had to figure out how to transport big wall panels from a phoenix factory to a construction site in vegas. There were just a ton of issues with its model. And i think maybe the silver lining of qatar downfall is is other companies coming after it will learn from qataris mistakes. It seems to me that this is as much a story about softbank. The world's biggest tech investor as it is about contessa. What does this say about softbank. Softbank really deserves at least a good portion of the blame for guiterrez demise was the biggest shareholder. And you know this. Qatar was an example of soft bank's strategy to essentially try to up end industries. Just by throwing a ton of capital at it like remember this ca- tara's the investment in qatar by softbank was like peak vision fund. one era. you know before it had been humbled by the decline of we work and some of its other companies were faced severe layoffs. And other kind of issues. You know qatar within that batch of of companies and and now i think it topic has probably learn some of those lessons that you can't just you know sort overcapitalize companies. In the way. They they did with guitar but You know. I think bossier she son who is sopping. Ceo has singled out. Qatar is one of one of the vision funds. Greatest failures so i think. Hopefully they'll learn from it but you know. I don't think this the company's failure tells us anything new about softbank that we didn't already know well. This has been a fascinating saga. And i encourage everyone who hasn't had a chance to be your stories about patera to to do sound. That's our show this week. Thanks so much for listening. Thank you to kevin jessica and wendy for being on the show and thank you to keenan kush four producing the former one. One have great weekend everybody..

This was six weeks after she first got sick. Some doctors questioned her symptoms, She recalls what once said when she described her continued fatigue and trouble breathing.

That'll Crombie found comfort in a cove in 19 Flak group that way, also joined Hold body politics, and it now has thousands of members. It was such a relief. It's just basically it was validating when it comes to understanding post Koven infections. Places like Italy, one of the first epicenters of the pandemic are now getting a view of just how complex this disease can be long term. Dr. Marco Ritzy is head of the infectious diseases unit at a large hospital in Bergamo, Italy. At first, he says patients who are hospitalized with covert 19 We're just glad to be alive. But then it got more complicated. We should vision a few months off this child and they still have these signs or after information in here.

When you survive, then when you are discharged, everything's over. This clearly is not the case in the U. K. Dr. Michael Marks at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine is also trying to better understand Cove in 19 complications. His covert clinic has been tracking hundreds of patients. 6 to 8 weeks out. Half experienced breathing problems and a majority reported fatigue. You know, you could have had permanent damage to the lungs from the infection, and that will cause you to be fatigued. You could have had damage to the heart, which could cause you to be fatigued. You could have had damage to the kidneys, which could cause you to be fatigued. Or we could not be able to find a cause and you could have ongoing fatigue.

We can offer more insights and data and research to help others but also helps science to figure out how to work. With us or a better collective outcome. This spring, she and a crummy and some others from the patient's lack group got together to lead their own research conducted. A detailed survey got hundreds of responses. I found that a majority of respondents experience fluctuations and symptoms. Many reported things like brain fog and trouble sleeping. What we've seen is that recovery is not linear. They've concluded that access to more regular care and check ins would help patients who are recovering from home, even those who were never hospitalized or who never got a confirmed Koven test. Next week. They're launching a new patient study this time through the University College London They want to dig deeper, and with that continue to support one another. For the world.

"Out their Corona virus plans for the fall semester. A big question is what happens with high school sports states like California, Washington and New Mexico have postponed many false sports to the spring. But in Texas, where Friday nights and the fall are for football, public schools are going to give athletics ago. Michael Marks from member station Kut has more. This is a big season for the force, Her high school volleyball Chargers won the school's first state championship last year, and they've got a lot of experienced players returning. It is Corona virus cases in Texas rose that fell and rose again became less and less clear whether they'd get a chance to defend their title. You know, worried about my seniors not having their senior season and To not have that would have just been devastating. That's the teams head coach Sydney Goacher.

Sports and activities like marching band got the go ahead with smaller schools, starting on the normal date in bigger schools following a month later. Since bigger schools tend to be in areas with Mohr Corona virus cases, The delay is supposed to help slow down the spread. Jaime Harrison is with the L. Given all of the challenges the variety of ways that Cove in 19 is impacting different communities across Texas. This is the best solution we could develop based on what we know today, Harrison said. The Elwood Onley cancel fall sports as a last resort, but schools can choose top down. The decision. Athletic directors like Cheryl Fillmore are grappling with. I guess the thing that I'm most concerned with is the fear that this disease is terrible disease can affect our community. And so with that, it's like, Is it really safe? To allow our kids to come back. Fillmore is the A D at West Oh so high School in Corpus Christi. The district's schools will open on August 24th in the first few weeks will mostly be online. The school's volleyball and football teams can start practicing well before that, being that they're not face the face instruction. If they can't do that, is it really safe for them to come back to the athletic arena? We have a concern about that. Schools are required to follow certain social distancing guidelines, but coaches realized that even if they play by the book There's no guarantee that they'll get a whole season. There's at least an opportunity, though. You know, I think you were following the rules like we should. And we will lose. Coaches might think there's a reasonable chance we're going to be ableto. To navigate our way through this. That's Rodney Web president of the Texas High School Coaches Association and the head coach of the Denton Guyer High School football team. As things currently stand, he doesn't see calling off for delaying the season. You know, a lot of people say all that's there's a football coach talking. He just wants to get his football fix in Our kids need this diversion. Our school's needed our community's needed. It is woven into the fabric of our society. Those Friday nights are a microcosm of all that's good in our society. The question that parents, principals and superintendents across the country have to answer. Is whether the good that comes out of those Friday nights is worth the risk that comes with them. For NPR News. I'm Michael Marks in Austin, Texas. This's all things considered from NPR News. Zach.

"Logic. Now the last one I've heard of it only because of he was. They are the acts for the Preakness infield this year. Electronic DJ's diplo and cargo and rapper logic. Be the infield that the weaknesses year. So then you can join the most of the rest of us not knowing that they are. Baltimore school board is going to reconsider their stance on arming school police officers during their meeting today two weeks ago, staff members shot at Frederick Douglass, high that shooting left a special Ed assistant Michael marks was serious injuries. And currently the Baltimore school resource. Officers allowed to carry their guns while patrolling outside the building. But not inside the building. They got a lock them up in a secure location. Where a lot of good. You know, if there's an intruder comes into the school. You know, then the police officer has to run to the secure location. Get the gun run back to where the intruder is. By that time five people are dead liberal logic for you or illogic. So we hope that they will reconsider that today. And then this California billionaire Tom stars come to Baltimore today. He is waving a lot of dough in front of Elijah Cummings. That's fresh green. Doe. Have you will start the impeachment proceedings on President Trump, Donald Trump? Then there's a lot more where this came from. So we'll see if Elijah is tempted by the scent of fresh green money. Well, that's how we get legislation on here. You pay for it. It really is. Maryland, lawmakers advancing a Bill the gradually increasing minimum wage to fifteen dollars per hour. But this'll be at a slower rate than advocates and hope for under the version of the Bill proved Monday night by house of delegates committee by seventeen to seven vote the minimum wage would increase the current ten ten per hour starting next year. And fifteen dollars in twenty twenty-five. I increase would be eleven dollars next January then it would go to eleven seventy five. Eventually we'll get to fifteen dollars by the year twenty twenty five so that's six years from now. And by that time, maybe fifteen dollars an hour would be appropriate. Maybe. Should be something that the market the free market determines and not the the Maryland state legislature. So we'll see how that works or not by the way, there's a lot of speculation about the mole report is coming out. Whatever the case may be well, we'll say again, I read so many of these reports you don't know what to believe anymore. But Adam Schiff says he's absolutely willing to go to court to obtain the mole report to make it public. If the J and William bar sits on it. And then rod Rosenstein of all people was talking about government transparency of the other day. Yeah. How about uranium one? Can we be transparent on that along with many others and Byron York writing in today's Washington Examiner says the cone hearings are designed to keep the people in the dark about Russia? All right. Sheriff Lewis is about join us now, and let's replay what happened yesterday at the an A-plus sheriff Louis other sheriffs were present.

When you've left home, or whatever you're out of the range of the electronic monitoring. But they they do not come equipped with GPS. I was shocked to learn that a close police source told me that over the weekend. The the electronic monitoring bracelet. So we use in Baltimore City and do not have GPS. So if the person violates their home detention, we have no idea where they are. All they had to do is cut the bracelet. All right, and they're gone. There are long gone. Some forty four.

"I kind of see what what he's getting at here that that Kingsbury fits into a kind of flavor of the month and the NFL. Yeah. Yes. See four. For most of the past twenty years, Texas Tech has been at the forefront of changing how football is played in Kingsbury has been a part of that as both a player and a coach now say more about them. So the roots actually go back to Texas high school football, but the basic idea of this philosophy is they wanted to spread players out. Go fast and throw the football. Now, this is a philosophy that produced tremendous results in high schools and colleges. But the thought was that you couldn't do it in the pros because NFL defenders just to athletes in the attack might be kind of a gimmick. But just recently that started to change largely because of this guy. The whole knick's over the middle Travis Chelsea touchstone. Patrick Mahomes with another dime. That's the CBS play by play. Call of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, throwing touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Okay. Now, wait, Patrick Mahomes. How does he fit into all this Mahomes is a former Texas Tech red raider coached by none other than cliff kingsborough care? He is now widely regarded as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, even though he's only in his second year. Now this wasn't seen as necessary. A sure thing though, when he came into the league there are a lot of questions about whether a quarterback who came up in kings Kingsbury system. Remember moving fast making lots of seemingly simple passes, whether that could be successful at this level. But so far so good. Here's Jay Leeson. He's a tech Finn. And he host the other side of Texas programs based in Lubbock. So the chiefs is of must see on Sundays because. It's exactly what we've been watching Joan stadium in Lubbock. It's the same offense that we've been watching for all these years. So pro teams are finding success basically replicating a version of what Kingsbury Mahomes, did it Lubbock. It sounds like it does seem that way Mahomes might win the most valuable player award the season. And the chiefs have a chance to go to the Super Bowl. So lots of teams are looking for a coach who can replicate that success. That's my Hugh, the former GM said that a guy like Kingsbury is the flavor of the month. Even if he didn't have a ton of success at a lower level. It is a risk. But it's one that Leeson thinks might pay off. No, this may sound crazy. But in the NFL that's being defined more and more by Patrick Mahomes. Bob guys that were one degree separate of cliff. Kingsbury? I'm not going to be surprised to be does this, I suppose, you could say is a bit of an experiment than right? See if this kind of football can actually keep working in the pros. Yeah. It's it's a big bet and not every NFL observer is convinced it will work. But if the cardinal start winning, you will see more guys like Kingsbury headed to the pros, and you can be sure that Texas standards. Michael marks will be keeping us up to date. Thanks so much for getting us up to speed. Michael sure thing David. Okay. So there you go yours, truly, you know, when I left out there was that the GM kind Steve. Time recruited a guy named Sean McVeigh to the cardinals only not to land McVeigh after all McVay may will be playing in the Super Bowl and a couple of weeks and the next guy that he went after was cliff Kingsbury so haters at me come at me on Twitter at j Leeson on Twitter. But I think there's a great chance that you could see Kingsbury in that mold McVeigh, the a great NFL coach from that. I Guess. guess you could say from the billeting tree on the NFL side and wouldn't expect him to do. Poorly in I do expect him to do very very well so guns up, and that's not me. Just being Homer. That's looking at it realistically. Glad to be on standard. Thank you guys for having me, some good analysis there. It's their Texas standard. What do the Arizona Cardinals see in cliff Kingsbury?.
