So. Far, the Nasdaq is clocked a record close thirty one times in twenty twenty. It's remarkable run for the and exit especially considering what a hit like the rest of the stock packet back in.

Of course, record highs in the marketplace seem at odds with the troubles were seeing a real economy small and medium businesses are shuttered big retailers bankrupt individuals and entrepreneurs are anxiously awaiting more government relief according to some as you'll hear, the disconnect is in part due to the Federal Reserve's unprecedented actions throughout the pandemic. And investor competent that the Fed will continue to support the markets. One former presidential candidate is calling for billionaires to step up to the real economy. Here's duckie quick Senator Bernie Sanders he is now. Calling for a crackdown on billionaires, this is what he tweeted last night. I will be introducing legislation tomorrow meaning today to tax the obscene wealth gains billionaires have made during the public health crisis. The senator tweeted a thread explaining his proposal saying while over thirty million. Americans. Have seen their six hundred dollars a week and unemployment benefits. Expire emergency actions taken by the Federal Reserve to prop up the stock market have meant that four hundred, sixty, seven billionaires saw their wealth go up by over seven hundred and thirty billion dollars since the pandemic began while Amazon is denying paid sick leave hazard pay personal protective equipment to four, hundred, fifty, thousand of its Workers Jeff Bezos has increased his wealth by over seventy billion dollars. Amazon shares are up more than seventy percent year to date. You can see this morning down by about twelve dollars. Senator Sanders also calls out Walmart's Walton family.

Senate Hearing Recap: Reopening Amid The Coronavirus
"Tonight. A dire warning from Dr Anthony FAUCI reopening the country too soon during the corona virus crisis will cost lives. There is a real risk that you will trigger an outbreak that you might not be able to control which in fact have reduc sickly will set you back not only leading to some suffering and death. It could be avoided. Could even set you back on the road to TRY TO GET ECONOMIC RECOVERY. A reality check from the nation's top infectious disease expert which stands in stark contrast to president. Trump's push to reopen the country. Tuesday Senate hearing unlike any before with the witnesses and many senators appearing remotely by conference an all-too-familiar precaution in the pandemic four of the nation's top health officials responsible for the Federal Response Dr Fallacy. Cdc Director Robert Redfield FDA Commissioner Steven Hahn and Admiral Brett Jarar offering their unfiltered assessments among the takeaways. Dr Faucher cautioning. It's a bridge too far to expect Corona virus treatments or a vaccine in time for the fall school semester the head of CDC could not say when the agency will finally released detailed advice to states. About how and when to reopen public places like schools churches and restaurants. When is it going to be released? Because states are reopening right now and we need this additional guidance to make those decisions. I do anticipate this broader guidance. Oh It'd be posted on the CDC website. Soon I soon isn't terribly helpful. And Dr Ci says the already staggering corona virus. Death toll is likely higher than what's reported the official statistic. Dr Faucher is that eighty thousand Americans have died from the pandemic. There are some epidemiologist who suggests the number may be fifty percent higher than that of what do you think. I'm not sure Senator Sanders if it's going to be fifty percent higher but most of us feel that the number of deaths are likely higher than that number. There may have been people who died at home. Who did have who are not counted as Kobe because they never really got to? The hospital. Tuesday's hearing grew tense at times with Republican. Senator Rand Paul clashing with Dr Jason. We can listen to your advice but there are people on the other side. Tangiers not going to be a surge and then we can safely open the economy and I have never made myself out to be the end all and only voice of this. I'm a scientist. A physician at a public health official. I give advice. According the best scientific evidence as Democrat seized on shortcomings in the trump administration's response resident trump must acknowledge that the several responses in sufficient and that more people are dying as a result but there was one point of bipartisan agreement. One thing that's abundantly clear. We need dramatically more testing. Would our country had done so far. Intesting is impressive but not nearly enough. I find are testing record. Nothing to celebrate whatsoever now. The White House has made progress in expanding the country's testing capabilities in recent weeks though public health experts warned that millions more tests per week are needed to safely reopen. The Country Lester. Alright Jeff Bennett to the White House. Thank you and one of the most striking moments from Dr found today was during an exchange about kids and the risk of corona virus it comes as NBC News has learned the CDC is preparing to issue an alert to doctors nationwide about the signs and symptoms of that mystery. Illness believed linked to Cova. Nineteen with more. Here's Kristen Dahlgren. Today in Washington a tense exchange over kids and covert and what it means schools. Consider reopening much as I respect you doctor Pal. I don't think you're the end hall. I don't think you're the one person I guess to make a decision whether it's a huge mistake if we don't open the schools in the fall. I think we'd better be careful if we are not cavalier in thinking that children are completely uneven the deleterious effects but I am very careful and hopefully humble and knowing that I don't know everything about this disease the nation's top infectious disease doc pointing to the new inflammatory disease that appears to be impacting small but growing number of children today spokesperson for the CDC saying it's preparing a nationwide alert to help track pediatric multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome. Symptoms can include prolonged fever rash abdominal pain and the inflammation can attack organs like the heart or kidneys. At least three children died in cases now suspected in at least fourteen states New York now has one hundred cases it's probably in other states And probably hasn't been diagnosed yet in other states because again these children don't present the usual Kovic symptoms. Doctors say the syndrome appears to be a delayed inflammatory response to the virus. It's severe. It is the very rapidly in these children so they can go from having fevers to suddenly deteriorating over a short period of time fortunately their treatment that seemed to be working along today. Josie past fan went home after days in the. Icu recused just to recognize the symptoms. Get your child there so that they can get the treatment and new evidence today. Even kids without the inflammatory syndrome can get sicker with Cova. Nineteen than I thought. A new study from children's national found of one hundred seventy seven kids who tested positive one in four required hospitalization. Nearly forty percent of those had no underlying condition overall children are a fraction of those most seriously impacted by Cova but tonight growing evidence against the Assumption. They are completely safe.
New Sanders/Jayapal bill: the Healthcare Emergency Guarantee Act
"The the next biggest thing obviously in healthcare is going to be this phase. Four relief bill which they're calling the cares to act which is likely to start moving through congress in the next week or two and the big question for us at least is. Is there going to be any healthcare relief for the millions and millions of people who are losing their jobs and losing their health insurance coverage right in the middle of massive healthcare crisis and there are now three bills that Democrats have different? Democrats have proposed in the house side And there's one on the Senate side It's not entirely clear whether anything will go through the Senate at all democratic leadership on the Senate side has not really made much noise about this But let's let's go back to the we've already talked about two of the house bills. We talked about A bill that Senator Sanders and reptile Paul are going to introduced. Actually not yet filed. This is called the Healthcare Emergency Guarantee Act. But what it really is it would cover everyone with Medicare It would have no co no deductibles and even if you have private or public insurance already than this bill would Medicare would cover all of your co pays and deductibles so basically it would achieve all of the access goals of a Medicare for all system. It would just temporarily believing in the private insurers and kind of providing wraparound and then but it is the like it is the Medicare Gateway Bill. Oh no doubt no doubt. Yeah I think so. We're going to be getting behind this bill. Most of the Medicare for movement is going to be supporting this bill. I think our feeling is that you know if you can get the experience of Medicare for all even if you don't get all the financing and limiting the health insurance company that it'll create real momentum to just do the full thing and because really leaving the health insurance companies in there. It just makes it much more expensive to do. It's hard to afford universal health. Care if you don't kick them out And you have to deal with them continuing to deny coverage and using the system just for their own profits so the other two bills. We already talked about this shitty bill that a democratic leadership is pushing the well the Worker Health Coverage Protection Act And this would obviously be good for some folks it expand. It basically subsidizes Cobra. So this is if you happen to have good health insurance in the job that you left. Then it would subsidize you staying on your previous employer's plan but a lot of people would not qualify for that Especially you know if you work at a small business. This is only Kober only works if you were working at a place that has twenty or more employees and it only works if your health. Your previous employer still exists and if their their health plan still exists. It doesn't work if your previous employer just went under or if they closed down their healthcare plan and obviously for many people who didn't have health care coverage previously. It would do nothing so just to give some numbers to illustrate the differences between these two bills the giant Paul Sanders Bill. The Healthcare Emergency Guarantee. Act THAT BILL WOULD COVER EVERYBODY. Who's currently uninsured? And that number is between thirty and forty million and rising as people are kicked off their their jobs and then kicked off their health insurance and then of course it would also because it would provide that wrap around coverage Basically it would basically affect everybody in the United States hundred plus million three hundred million whereas the Cobra Bell the Cobra for some ish. Bill that Nancy Pelosi is pushing would cover at most four to five million people so the scope is really different. Yeah I hadn't even seen that projection but that is shockingly inadequate for sort of what's facing us and we now have a third bill if you weren't confused already this is This is a bill introduced this past week by Reps. Chhaya Paul and Reps Kennedy who are both Medicare for all supporters in called the Medicare Crisis Program Act? We we might need to rename all these bills down and their bill would Instead of I mean the other thing about the bill is that it's just throwing public tax dollars at private health insurance companies but this plan that Kennedy introducing would expand Medicare extend Medicare to the recently unemployed so basically people who have become unemployed due to You know in the period of Corona virus would be allow- allowed to enroll in the Medicare program But the thing that makes this it's not nearly as good as the sanders giant. Paul Bill Because it leaves all of almost all of the cost sharing and copays and deductibles Under Medicare would still be there They did eliminate some like the premiums that you have to pay but you'd still have A part A. Part B. deductibles. You'd still have to buy a drug plan if you want to have any drug coverage you'd have the donut hole all that all those limitations that Medicare unfortunately comes with And then if you did not become recently unemployed then you also wouldn't qualify for the program So in my opinion it's it's better than the Cobra Bill. it would cover more people But it's still. I think totally inadequate for what's needed in this crisis and it makes kind of arbitrary distinctions about who gets in and who doesn't so I don't know our current system Yeah but yeah it would be better. It's like a gateway light right so we have like the the sanders dry. Paul Act which is like improved Medicare for all ish improved Medicare for all gateway drug. We have this the Reps Scott. Dingle Pelosi Bill which is like Cobra for some ish like you should have been a Republican bill right. They may be actually and I mean this. This is what I thought. The Republicans were going to push would be like. Let's subsidize private insurance but it turns out. There's been some like trading places going on over the decades so and then we have this new job. Kennedy Bill Medicare for the recently unemployed. So now we've got these three bills but none of it is really important. The distinctions between the bills. If nobody's actually going to fight for any of these bills and Pelosi for example they introduce this bill but she hasn't really been talking that much about it. I'm not sure if there's been a lot of discussion about whether it's actually going to be in the next phase of relief and and I think that there's a reason that the Democrats haven't really tackled the UN insurance problem. Which is there's no good solution for them. I mean insurers want them to expand Cobra which would be massively expensive and then as we were talking about cover only a fraction of the newly insured newly uninsured. The other option is of course you either expand private or public insurance and so the other option is to temporarily expand public insurance which would cover more people and of course be far less expensive but would also piss off the industry. Not only because they aren't going to be receiving those subsidies Cobra but because it would just be difficult to claw back you know expansion of public insurance and it would also demonstrate a way for us to transition away from employer based insurance so democratic leaders are just Kinda stuck between these two forces I think and I think that maybe they're just hoping that all these people who had insurance these are the ones they sort of have to worry about the the people that they think make up their base they. They hope that maybe they'll get their jobs back soon. And then they won't have to deal with this whole problem.
Progressives propose Medicare for the Uninsured
"Let's talk about the news of the week. The fight for having a relief. Bill that actually addresses what is going to be a massive health insurance crisis on So we had a bill introduced by Representative John Paul and Bernie Sanders in the Senate and then just Today actually as we're recording this this'll be yesterday as you're listening. Nancy Pelosi and House Leadership Democrat leadership in the House came out with a different proposal. We haven't seen language yet but this is clearly going to be the two kind of competing visions for next relief bill from the Democratic side so far icy silence from the Republican side. We don't even know if they're going support another relief bill at all Although I think the pressure is just going to become a hard to avoid once all of this unemployment leads to lack of insurance soon So the basic overview. Let's let why don't we start with the Sanders? John Paul Bill since that came out. I What they've proposed these of course are the lead sponsors of the Medicare for all legislation in the House and the Senate And this is not a medicare for all proposal. But it's kind of a stopgap proposal during the credit crisis. So what they've said is that Medicare should cover everyone who does not have health insurance And that Medicare will cover all co payments deductibles and cost sharing for everyone else. That's where people who have private insurance who have public insurance Like Medicaid or the Veterans Administration Or Medicare for that matter And that that will Last in effect until a vaccine is widely available to the public And the thinking of course is that we literally just cannot address this pandemic without everyone having access to healthcare Otherwise everyone who slipped through. The cracks of the healthcare system is going to be Is going to be unable to access. Care avoiding care when they need it and more likely to spread The contagion so Stephanie. What do you think about proposal? That came out of Japan. Senator Sanders Office. Well when I first heard about this proposal I thought it was perfect because it gives us a way to sort of expand public health insurance and it also fulfils the moderate concerns about allowing people to stay on their health insurance and all the stupid rationales for supporting a public option versus Medicare for all and that has always been the moderate case against Medicare for all right it's too disruptive maybe amid Medicare for all is in theory better but people are just so happy with their private insurance. Who Am I? Who are we to argue with them? And maybe they need a chance to try it out. And that's the impetus behind the whole public option. And you know they always say that. The of course. The goal is universal healthcare. But what the pathway. How do we get there? You know the details matter well. Here's your chance you know. Millions kicked off their insurance by no fault of their own at a time. When it's not actually safe to go outside but as far as I know no other members of Congress besides Sanders and Paul have supported this plan. Yeah I don't even know if it's been you know. They've barely rolled it out. It just came off the shelf. So we're us. The movement are going to have to build support for this bill. And you know it's interesting because this plan is kind of like some of the competing plans that you know. The centrists who were running for president were running on This doesn't resemble like the Biden plan but it is kind of what like Baidoa Rourke was was backing. It's a little bit like will cover everyone with the public plan. But we'll keep somehow the private health insurance in the workplace health insurance And I think the reason it's important to acknowledge why this is not a replacement for Medicare for all it needs to be. Temporary is the cost right. The the downside of doing it this way is that you don't get most of the savings that you get from Medicare for all system which really comes from like simplifying the system and you're cutting out all this administrative waste hospitals and doctors only have to deal with one pair they don't have to deal with fifty different payers. And that's how Medicare for all works by creating although savings you can afford to cover everyone else afford to have no co payments and deductibles. It is much more expensive to do it. This way to keep the private insurance companies in their keep all this complication waste in the system and expand coverage to everyone But I think you can do it temporarily as a stopgap measure And so I think it would be a good stepping-stone and people we literally cannot address this crisis with more and more people losing access to health insurance so I think it'll be an interesting fight. Yeah and it could arguably be even less expensive than giving subsidies to private health. Insurers who who made just end up pocketing. Well obviously we'll end up pocketing the profits but also will not be actually giving out any care outside of probably a lot of corona virus care because people aren't actually going to the doctor for anything else right now that's a fact that's not arguably that's it would definitely be cheaper to cover people through expanding medicare than it would be through throwing money at private
$2 trillion bill expected to be approved as millions of Americans file for unemployment
"Today we got last week's unemployment figures and they are dire record three point two million people filed for unemployment benefits the Senate meanwhile passed a two trillion dollar economic package this week in part to help people weather the economic storm it's the largest emergency aid deal in modern U. S. history and some people are estimating that this pandemic or at least the resulting economic fallout could go well into next year and that could mean it's a problem for a new president depending on what voters decide in November it still is an election year after all joining us from Capitol Hill now Vermont senator Bernie Sanders senator Sanders welcome back to one day good to be with your dog senator the the Senate got unanimous agreement ninety six to zero I think on this two trillion dollar aid package your view on how far this goes for workers I mean these unemployment numbers are staggering three point two million it's like a brick wall well because I have very little doubt that there will be another major piece of legislation well within the next few weeks or a month or two given the fact that we are looking at the worst pandemic since the Spanish flu of nineteen eighteen god knows how many people will be infected Dolly and that we're looking at you just indicated that a tremendous spike in unemployment and a real downfall in not only our economy but the world's economy all I have very little doubt that well this is a start we're gonna have to come back and address the needs of working people in a far more substantial well wait what did you make of the unanimous nature of the vote there was some debate there were some acrimonious wrangling for sure nobody wanted to be on the other side of this one and looting many of your conservative colleagues who in another time and another place would have chafed at unemployment benefits or deficit spending perhaps a or a lot of the other provisions in here we had a bit of a debate last night when some of my anti worker Republican colleagues wanted to prevent low income workers from getting the additional six hundred dollars on top of their unemployment check and that was something that I was not going to allow to happen we'd be forced back on hundreds of feet is out so I think that's your question all up there is a widespread understanding not only in the Congress but among the American people that we are in an unprecedented moment in American history nobody knows quite what will happen but what he is I think the good news and I want to credit the democratic leadership for understands this but this is not a time for thinking all about the way we thought about things yesterday we got to think in a very very bold way and while this bill did not go anywhere near as far as like for future calls what it did do is expand unemployment benefits in a way that has never taken place before well one of the great problems with the unemployment compensation system is that a majority of workers in America are not covered if you order over driver if you are working as an independent contractor and many other types of jobs even when you lose your job you're not eligible for unemployment what this bill does is two things it more or less guarantees unemployment benefits for all American workers including those who had not previously been caught and what it also does in an unprecedented way it says you don't want the Arbitron employment checkers I think somewhere around three hundred and sixty dollars a week and what it still says that for months you're gonna get six hundred dollars more a week than you otherwise would have gotten some kind of unprecedented in addition to that it puts twelve hundred dog is a one shot in fusion of money to a family of twelve hundred dollars for an adult five hundred dollars for kids is not enough no I don't want it two thousand dollars every single month until the crisis is over what the bill also does is to understand the horrific situation facing many hospitals around America right now war always soon will be overwhelmed with corona virus patients it injects well over a hundred billion dollars in the hospitals cities and counties and states are losing tax revenue right now big time it uses a lot of money to make themselves so that they can pay their

Florida Rep. Val Demings on Her Biden Endorsement
"Over the last two years congresswoman. Val demings of Florida has had a front row seat to history. She serves on the House. Intelligence Committee the House Judiciary Committee and she was one of the seven house. Impeachment managers who argued for the conviction of President Trump. And now demings name is being bandied about as a possible vice presidential nominee is she. I totally forgot to ask her about her Harley but I did ask her about trump Florida her support of Joe Biden and yes whether she wanted to be considered for vice president here at all right now congresswoman bowel demings. Thank you very much. For being on the PODCAST. It's great to be with you. So let's just jump right on in you endorsed. Vice President Biden. You are from Florida can he carry Florida In November can a Democrat. Win Florida in November. I have no doubt that a Democrat can win Florida the numbers and Florida's support that But what we're facing assist a matter of turnout and so our job is to make sure that we turn Democratic voters out when we looked at Super Tuesday I think if we watched the voters and listen to the voters the voters are deciding and I thank on Super Tuesday. They were strong. They were powerful. I think they sent a clear message about who they believe can lead our country and move a democratic agenda forward. We saw every demographic turn out and as you know Florida's a very diverse state And I think if what has happened what happened on. Super Tuesday is any indication of what will happen to in Florida's primary. I think that we're going to be in really good shape. Now I'd sort of bounce ahead I did mention you. Endorse Vice President Biden. But there's still contest right now. There's a bird contest you know what what I just feel so hopeful about. We know what we have experienced the last three years almost four now and there is no way. American families can go through another four years of what we've seen And so you know when I look at the democratic feeling as you all know several of my colleagues were in that race what I knew and we heard it quite a bit but I believed it to be true is that anyone on the democratic side would be better than what we have and now we're basically down to two individuals who. I believe if you look at what they believe in what they fought for. Then certainly Will be in better shape. I just happen to believe that one of them Vice President Biden really is the want to carry the agenda forward and really Unify our country. Which is so desperately needed right now. How damaging was it or is it to Senator Sanders. The comments that came out from the the old video of him praising Fidel Castro and then even his defense of his comments about Fidel Castro again from a Florida Lens was that damaging to his effort. Well again you've listened to the people and I think the people and those who represent them spoke loudly and clearly and I won't certainly will not guess about what Senator Sanders Sarah what he meant to say but what I do know. Is that several people who live in our very diverse state. Were upset by those comments. And so you know we're in the middle of a race. We're going to let the let full radiance to But I think you know when you look at Vice President Biden. He has been in the trenches fighting for issues that we care about for a long time fighting for issues that before it was popular quite frankly to fight for them like marriage. Equality issues like climate control. Certainly he's been a unifier along the way and I love what Whip Clyburn said I think most of all he said we know Joe but more important Joe knows us and that's because he's been there fighting for those issues and building those relationships longtime he didn't wait until he decided to run for the most powerful position In the country and so. I think like I said I just. I go back to watch the voters I know. There's a lot of talk about the establishment. I quite frankly find that I am not quite sure what that means when voters turn out in. Great numbers We certainly know how the African American turnout was led by South Carolina I don't know what the establishment means but I certainly know what people go to the polls mean and we saw

How Russia Is Trying To Boost Bernie Sanders' Campaign
"Last month senator Bernie Sanders acknowledged he'd been briefed by the intelligence community about Russia's efforts to boost his campaign efforts that are unwelcome NPR's Tim mak looks deeper into what Russia's campaign to boost Sanders looks like Russia's campaign includes an ever changing number of targets based on Russian strategic goals including reportedly the reelection of president Donald Trump but its support for Sanders in particular has become an attack line take this example from former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg during a recent presidential debate Vladimir Putin things that Donald Trump is should be president added states and that's why rusher is helping you but you'll have Sanders had this response Hey Mr Putin if I'm president the United States trust me you're not getting into it anymore American elections the Russian government's apparent campaign to aid centers would mostly be hidden behind the anonymity of the internet but there are ways to look to Russia's public messaging to see how they're supporting the senator Clint watts has been monitoring Russian interference as part of his work with the foreign policy research institute he says Russian state backed media was more neutral on Sanders in the fall but has begun to mirror pro Sanders talking points for scene four years ago but what's really come on strong just in the last thirty to forty five days are very similar narratives that we saw in twenty sixteen about Sanders on Russian news agencies RT and Sputnik what's noticed that Sanders received substantially better coverage than his opponents Sanders received a higher percentage of positive coverage two and a half times more than any other democratic candidates surpassing even president Donald Trump by that metric and Sanders received far less negative coverage than his rivals Jessica Brandt who works with the alliance for securing democracy has also examined Russian narratives about Sanders those tend to be that the corporate media and that the democratic establishment the DNC and elites are breaking the system against him and you know endeavoring to deny him a win another way to gauge Russia's support for Sanders is by examining social media accounts linked to their efforts in October Facebook announced it has suspended Instagram accounts with apparent links to the internet research agency a Kremlin linked troll farm based in St Petersburg Facebook share this data with graphic a social media analytics firm which said that four of the suspended accounts had a focus on praising senator Sanders he was the only candidate on the democratic side there was a focus of these fake accounts in some cases these accounts plagiarize memes and content directly from the centers can paint one post read quote millions of people in America want to get an education and Bernie Sanders is their last hope the centers can paint says Russia is trying to do their best to sow discord in the race not elect Bernie Sanders and campaign co chair congressman ro Khanna points out that the senator has been a fervent advocate of solutions to foreign interference senator Sanders has been at the forefront of election security what we need is paper ballots what we need is an investment in our election infrastructure what we needed is smart regulation against disinformation campaigns but Sanders is disavowal of Russia's efforts haven't stopped them we can yeah is the vice president of the national security program at third way a center left think tank that opposes a Sanders candidacy one of the things I think Russia looks at when they see Bernie is that he's someone who's talking about a rigged system he's talking about delete aren't with you with a long election campaign ahead this year the sense among experts is that problems with foreign interference are
Elizabeth Warren's Presidential Bid Comes to an End
"Senator Amy Klobuchar former South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Brundige and former New York City mayor. Mike Bloomberg have all called it quits and today. We're adding Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren to that list. I will not be running for president in twenty twenty but I guarantee I will stay in the fight for the hardworking folks across this country have gotten short into the stick over another. That's been the fight of my life and it will continue to be so warrants progressive policy driven campaign caught fire last fall making her an early favorite to win the nomination but she had a disappointing showing in the first elections in the primary season. Including this week Super Tuesday with more on the rise and fall of Warren's candidacy we're joined by Wall Street Journal reporter Tarini Party Tarini. Last fall senator. Warren was one of the front runners for the Democratic nomination but today she became the last remaining woman among the top tier candidates drop out. How expected was this announcement at this point. Given what we saw on Super Tuesday Warren was essentially left with no choice. But to drop out there was all choose facing a lot of pressure because she didn't win a single state she came third in her home state of Massachusetts. And so you know as this race drags out with Joe Biden on one side and Bernie Sanders on the other. The more candidates who stay in the longer the Democratic primary could become. And that's something that party leaders are trying to avoid They WANNA be trump and so they think that the field should sort of consolidate And so they can have a nominee sooner rather than later and she just didn't see a path forward a viable path forward. She did not end. You know ahead of Super Tuesday. Her staff had said that they were looking at a contested convention as one of the ways that were left for her to essentially be the Democratic nominee. They were hoping that she would pick up enough delegates on Super Tuesday to make that case but she didn't get that far and at this point. She said she just saw no path forward. Let's talk about the rise and fall of her candidacy. Tarini people were talking about her back in two thousand sixteen. When Hillary was running right she chose not to run in two thousand sixteen. And this time around you know. She started off with a few missteps She really did get her footing back. She focused her campaign on Ground Game Organization. She built out a huge campaign that focused on raising money online That really Invested in field organizers in in the early states An early on she did start getting a lot of traction. You know if you go back to the late summer early fall. She was starting to become the front runner in this primary. And then that slowly started That's that's slowly. Went away as more questions about her health. Care plan started. Cropping up she eventually put out a Medicare her own version of Medicare for all And you know wasn't really able to sell that both to moderate voters and progressive voters which she said today in her press conference was interesting. She said that when she started out she was told that there were two lanes in the Democratic primary the the Progressive Lane and the The moderate lane and Joe Biden would be the front runner in the moderate Lane and Bernie Sanders was in coming on the Progressive Lane. She was told she said that there was no other path. And she said she Set at the time that she didn't believe that that she thought that she could change things and she said today that that she was wrong It seems based on the way that this primary has played out who among those remaining candidates Former Vice President Biden or Vermont Senator Sanders Might Benefit from Warren's exit. So we'll have to see you know if she decides to endorse. She said today that she's going to take some time to think. And figure things out you know a lot of her supporters. Are you know more progressive? And if you in that sense they could be. You know they could move to Bernie Sanders but she also does have a lot of college educated women who aren't necessarily you know the Bernie Sanders Type of voter so she could. You know some Some of her supporters could also back Joe Biden Tarini. Warren's departure leaves two white men in their seventies competing to run against president trump another white man in his seventies. What are we to make of the fact that this was historically diverse. Field has whittled down to this. It was historically diverse. We had six women. If you know if you're including Tulsi Gabbard and Marianne Williamson. We had six women running Tulsi Gabbard is obviously still in the race but has not gained any traction she elizabeth. Warren was the you know the the last top tier woman still running. She sort of addressed that in her in her press conference one of the hardest parts of this is all those all those little girls. We're going to have to wait four more years. That's going to be hard. What affected Warren. Have on the two thousand presidential campaign and we'll see continue to influence it going forward. I think she will continue to have Influence and be a big voice especially if she decides to endorse either Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. Going forward how they bring up some of her policy ideas and whether they choose to incorporate those in their own campaign that will be interesting to

Trump Isn't Trying to Bring Down Bernie Sanders—Yet
"Seems pretty obvious. That president trump would prefer senator sanders as the nominee of maybe against him The reason I say that is because he obviously has been sort of trying to Via his twitter account stir up chaos inside the Democratic Party which is quite good at by targeting everybody except for senators and suggesting senator supporters that they're going to be robbed of the nomination only by the democratic upper echelon. It seems that the number ones you agree with that characterization that that's what trump wants maybe. I don't know I I wouldn't I wouldn't say full-throated though because I've seen president trump you know in interviews and Thomas out with him have a amount of hesitancy by saying. Oh yeah all in. Let's run against Bernie. I think Bernie could be trump. I think it's really hard to run against free. And I think the media would go out for especially the younger journalist Marxist activists class. They'd be more excited than ever to try to paint him as the salvation. That America Needs Bloomberg or Bernie. Who had Hollywood go all in more for think Bernie for sure? I think I don't know how much currency that has in Wisconsin but it can make some impact Probably from a philosophical choice. I would much rather run against burning. Because I think he embodies.

"Thank you guys senator Sanders they're talking about the process versus the will of the people if you walk us through the process I was exposed to clear things up here what we know from that is that Bernie Sanders the only person on the stage you think the person with the pledged delegate lead should be the nominee and the long time rules set out by the Democratic National Committee at all the campaigns have signed on to is that you need a fifty percent plus one majority to be the nominee that that this year that magic number is one thousand nine hundred and ninety one with such a splintered field it's hard to see how somebody you know gets that of course they want the majority of the entire party behind that candidate but he mentioned super delegates which could be really important because their role is change this year yeah just briefly how has it changed yeah look these are these long time party officials and there's about seven hundred of them the they had their super power strip they can't vote on the first ballot but they'll be able to vote on that second ballot we could be calling them super zombie delegates because they their votes may come back to haunt some candidate in the end supers on be delegates a for is to talk in your pocket and I'm keep paying attention to in pairs Dominican Montanaro thanks you're welcome scientists say the current coronavirus outbreak in China was caused by what's called spill over that's when an animal virus jumps into humans and coronavirus spillovers were thought to be rare but researchers working in China say they found evidence that the spill overs have been happening all along and yours and re Eisenman reports we're gonna start the story with the scene at NPR actually recorded three years ago in Malaysian Borneo okay mask is on closer on Kevin all of all is at the edge of a rainforest sitting in a make shift outdoor biology lab their plastic chairs and on a folding table he places a small creature he's just caught a female back the third girl okay a little is a disease ecologist with a nonprofit research group eco health alliance he starts taking samples of the bath body fluids they were getting the oral side in the back of the throat and I'm just I'm just holding her head between my two fingers with a leather glove on a little bit on the question sample on that form that was a reaction to a rectal salon he wants to check the samples for viruses that's are known for carrying some dangerous ones particularly viruses that have the potential to kick off global outbreaks so although his colleagues are on the hunt for the next big threat a few more swabs and it's all done and now she gets a special treat a little bit a mango juice as a reward during that same period that NPR recorded this although his colleagues were also in the process of collecting samples from thousands of bats in China and all will says what they found is alarming yeah so we we found evidence for in total from all the sampling we did in China about like four hundred new strains of coronaviruses that means four hundred potential candidates to spark another outbreak a corona virus caused a massive outbreak in China back in two thousand two to two thousand three severe acute respiratory syndrome or sars and this current outbreak is from a sars related corona virus it gets worse scientists had thought spillovers were rare that coronaviruses weren't generally capable of infecting humans it took a lot of complicated steps step one a bat coronavirus had in fact some animal species ahead closer contact with people step two while in that animal's body the virus had to pick up new genetic code but the sampling project found all those steps not needed what we showed was that sars related viruses in the bat population have the potential to go directly into human cells and do not need for that extra nutritional stopped by inspecting another post in other words the past to sparking new outbreaks is potentially much more direct for example one of the corona viruses they found was a very close genetic match for the sars virus so they put it in a Petri dish with human cells and it infected them all will says the fact that a bat coronavirus had the ability to infect human cells reason obvious next question as their evidence that those viruses are actually infected people so the researchers started taking blood samples from villagers in China who lived near some of the bat caves they've been studying hung in league is ecologist with eco health alliance she says people in the back kids all the time they were popular local hang out well well well into the caves for sampling we usually see people's like it beer bottle and all like a water bottle he and her colleagues check the villagers blood for signs of recent infections with bat coronaviruses and they did this again with people in some other rural areas both times we find corn of ours is a that's already spill over into human population multiple outbreaks that had gone undetected Kevin although says this is a huge red flag that sort of the signal was there that the sars related viruses were jumping into people even if they weren't causing any noticeable disease people might have had symptoms but health authorities never picked up on it which brings us to this current coronavirus outbreak as soon as it started eagle health alliances collaborators in China compare the new virus to the bat samples they collected and they found an extremely close match viral taxonomists would probably call that the same virus species this new outbreak that's infected tens of thousands of people could have come directly from bats all will says the larger take away is clear these about sars related coronaviruses are actively going over in the human population not all of them will sparked deadly pandemics but the more frequent these.

I'm Dave Bittner with your cyber wire summary for Thursday February Twentieth. Two thousand twenty the UK and the US have formerly blamed Russia for a wave of disruptive politically themed website defacements. That hit Georgia in October. Two Thousand Nineteen British Foreign Secretary Robin called the GRU's campaign reckless and brazen and unacceptable attack on a sovereign nation. Us Secretary of State Pompeo said the attempts gave the lie to Russian claims of Being Responsible Actor in cyberspace. The British response is harsher the Americans for Russia to reform itself and offer Georgia. Some help securing itself against further attacks. The defacement campaign was interesting in that it was in effect and probably in conception a purely disruptive operation you may recall that some fifteen thousand websites in Georgia were defaced. With a photo of the country's former President Mikheil Saakashvili with text. I'll be back overlaid on top of the ex-president's smiling. Two thumbs up picture now. The former president was known during his time in office as a strong advocate of pro western policies. Which on the face of it would make him an unlikely figure for GRU boosting. He left Georgia for Ukraine in two thousand thirteen saying that he was fleeing trumped up corruption. Charges defacements are low grade form of hacking and as influence operations go. There are pretty blunt and not terribly effective instrument but in this case they serve to exacerbate domestic tensions in Georgia and that the US and UK suggest was the point all along by Zd Nets. Count this is the fifth time the allies have accused the GRU of cyber attacks against foreign states their list of the other four is as follows black energy which in December two thousand fifteen shut down a portion of Ukraine's power grid for up to six hours in destroyer. A second attack on Ukraine's power grid year after Black Energy. Also known as crash override. This attack disrupted power distribution in and around Kiev for about an hour not pecchia a June twenty seventeen destructive pseudo ransomware attack that initially affected Ukrainian targets but which spilled over into many other parts of the world including Western Europe and North America and finally bad rabbit a ransomware attack in October twenty seventeen which encrypted hard drives and rendered it inoperable the campaign was also concentrated on Ukrainian targets the public naming and shaming is being read as a warning to Moscow to stay away from attempting to meddle in other countries elections. And of course especially in fiddling with the US twenty twenty elections. It needn't however take much fiddling to achieve a disruptive result the difficulties the Iowa Democratic Caucus experienced with Shadow Inc.'s less than fully successful Iowa report APP has already prompted some non negligible intra-party suspicion especially as the ongoing re canvas has shown the already small margin between Caucus Front runner. Buddha judge and second-place finisher sanders having shrunk even more last night at the democratic debate. That preceded this weekend's Nevada Caucus Senator Sanders deplored some of the social media excesses. Some apparent supporters of him have been seen to commit but then immediately pointed out that. It's quite possible that many of those supporters are just Russian bonds as quoted in the daily beast. The senator said all of us remember two thousand sixteen and what we remember is efforts by Russians and others to interfere in our election and divide us up. I'm not saying that's happening. But it would not shock me and quote. He wasn't saying that. So you see still yes that he had any evidence for it but as a matter of a priority possibility. Sure it's possible the Russian bots are out and about if your aim is disruption with bought hunters like that who needs the actual butts at a certain point suspicion and mistrust will do your work for you. Chances are you've got systems in place to monitor the status and availability of the technical services. You use day today to alert you. If a server goes down power goes out or there's a sudden spike in traffic. But how about your people? How do you monitor your teams and Co workers to make sure? They're not operating beyond their capacity and burning out. Jamie Tomasulo is head of trust and compliance at Cisco duo security. She presented at the virus bulletin. Two Thousand Nineteen Conference and her talk was titled. I'M NOT GONNA die during this conference. Call Reflections on availability and burn out. I think a lot of people are focused are round what they have to do as an individual to prevent being burned out a lot of the advice in presentations. You hear. Say things around their own wellness Things like you should exercise more. Make sure you're drinking water. Make sure you get enough sleep. Drink less caffeine or more depending on who? You're talking to and one of the things that I think is being missed is the role of a manager or leader in preventing mitigating harm With regards to burnout. Well let's dig into that would part. Do you think the manager place so I think what's really important to think about when we talk about managers in their role in seeking about individuals from burn out perspective that people were not perpetual motion machines. I think one of the challenges that we failed to exempt except that for ourselves and the teams which report to us into work patterns out exhaust. Our personal energy will not lead to infinite productivity. If I'm a manager how do I monitor for this? How do I e foster an environment where I feel as though I'm I'm getting the most out of my employees but at the same time looking out for them for for both their personal Health but also for the sake of the organization a few things that we can think about when it comes to how to monitor this or how to think about this is thinking about especially those who are in engineering our operational roles thinking about what are the signs and symptoms that assist service isn't healthy optimize or at a sustainable capacity? There's actually a cyber operation stress survey one of the techniques that you can use jus- AIA Dykstra and Celeste Lyn Paul of the US Department of Defense develop this and it's a low cost method to Seti fatigue frustration in cognitive workload in tactical cyber operations. And it's easily adaptable to anyone in an operations or security role. Do you have any insights on? How companies successfully manage that transition from what I'm imagining is that startup culture where everyone is putting in a lot of a lot of hours and working hard and just doing whatever needs to be done to to get the company going but then there comes a point. There's a process of of Putting things in place to achieve sustainability do companies have to be delivered in that process? Yes I think you have to be deliberate. You have to be inclusive. You have to be intersectional. You have to be able to look at in order to scale your organization to take From startup into growth stage company and then ultimately passed that point you cannot just look at the sustainability or the growth of the product. It also has you have to look at the staff and the needs and the resourcing of the team. I think it's critical that human condition ultimately the people who serve your organization are part of that growth plan and part of that trajectory. And making sure you're keeping that resource in keeping that space for them to grow as the rest of the organization. Gross that's Jamie Tomasulo from Cisco duo security. Julian assange is attorneys in. His extradition hearings have claimed that former. Us Congressman Dana Rohrabacher. Offered him a pardon on behalf of president trump. If Mr Assange would say that the Russians had nothing to do with leaking the democratic documents wiki leaks published during the two thousand sixteen election season. Wikileaks has long suggested that the Russians had nothing to do with the leaks. So it's difficult to see. Why such an inducement might have been offered in any case Mr Rohrabacher and the White House have both denied making any such offer. Mr Roker said in a statement that he met with Mr Assange twenty seventeen and upon his return told then trump advisor general. Kelly that the wiki leaks proprietor might provide information about the DNC leaks in exchange for a pardon but that no one in the administration took the idea up. The White House says they knew nothing about any such offer. Mr Assange is currently fighting extradition from the UK to the US where he faces a number of federal charges. His attorneys would like the British court to release him so he can seek asylum in France.
