"That I just well, the left Now we want to keep the state's name because they're probably against the American revolution at this point, But back then back then you would have if we if they had the same ideas that we do now, unless I'm wrong about this, and I have I looked it up. And 56 years I've been wrong seven times, so it's possible. This is the name but if it is true that the state of Georgia was named after King George, it shows you how different people are now because we fought And we won our freedom from somebody that we considered to be a tyrant. And it may have been a different George, but the same lines. I don't even know it was the same game. Sure it wasn't Georgia melodic issue. It's named George the second, so that is that. That's royalty. That's what we fought against. And that name triggers me because I lost three members of my family in the Revolutionary War. If today's thinking were in place, then then we would be living. In. Ah, in the state of whatever. I don't know. I don't know what George went with Terminus Station terminus. All right. The president was in town. What went down while he was talking about his transportation initiative, and you keep saying that transportation issue this is more about environmentalism about removing Environmental red tape. I think the president even says in here and I say it to objectively speaking. Yeah, you need to do an environmental review before you start building anywhere. It's just a smart thing to do. But what's happened is environmentalist who haven't been ableto win through politics and getting their candidates elected. Have decided to bog every company down with another environmental study and another environmental study until they just decide this isn't worth it any more, and they removed their investment. That's how environmentalists I mean, even environmentalists. If they're just being honest, they'll say, Yeah, that's our strategy because Getting people elected to pass laws in our favor. Just isn't working so well. He's trying this initiative supposedly is going to do keep in environmental review, but you know, make it reasonable, right? He talked about that We won't get certain projects through for environmental reasons. They have to be environmentally sound. But you know what we're going to know in a year we're going to know what a year and 1/2 when I don't know in 20 years. People loved it. And he also when he would be for people loved it. What do you a blogger? They tell. They told Jared, that people loved it. They love look usually have to wait 50 years to get a road built Now you like what a week People love that right? They love that. People see that I see that the headlines from what are supposed to be reputable sources like a P and Reuters, Trump said. Blah, blah, blah, and people are angry. There's 330 million of those people of this country..

"Yes, and what the argument there said, was that the government must have a compelling reason for programs that substantially burden religious beliefs. And so the argument from the left was that that that the compelling reason was that women need this or a lot of women that need this, and so You would be burdening anybody who worked for the organization, even if they had nothing to do with the actual business like you know, you work for a convent. I know if you're a nun in the convent, I don't think they're going to be concerned about birth control. But you know you were hobby lobby Way had that ruling a few years earlier that there's nothing necessarily religious about Hobby lobby the activity of the business. But because the owner was I don't know if he's a strict Catholic or whatever you had religious objections they could. They could say that in this particular case, they said, yes, that was the argument in defence of women on DH should have access to Contraceptive care wasn't a compelling enough reason to reject someone's religious police for not wanting to do that. It does come. I bet it does come back around again and they left the whole open. But you listen, then say that the state then provides it. State basically provides it now that if you want to get free birth control, you have to play in parenthood in some type of program will provide it for you. Little ministers, the poor. The nice thing is the Obama administration stop finding them tens of thousands of dollars because it's right there, in the name of poor people said that they could use that money No in one of the silver lining for liberals. The terminus station. This is ah Kam Lee McKinnon. He actually said that women who lack access to contraceptive coverage because of their employers, religious beliefs who are now impacted or moral convictions to more easily access such care through federal programs of the trap administration For the next four months, At least, it's committed to trying to find federal programs that will allow for that. That.

"That takes you to the frontlines of science and tech and shows you. What's coming next? Look ahead what do you hear? The future of everything from the Wall Street Journal. Subscribe wherever you get your podcasts. Many of the world's most powerful tech companies have seen their supply chains crumble because of the corona virus pandemic Apple Intel and other huge companies depend on Asian manufacturers for some of their critical hardware like semiconductor chips and the pandemic closed doors at many of those plants. Now many of those factories are back up and running but the trump administration is looking for ways to make sure. We aren't so dependent on foreign suppliers in the future by bringing more semiconductor facilities back to the US. A reporter is sufficient has been looking into this and he joins us now. Hey thanks for being here okay. So the word. Semiconductors and chips Might make some people's eyes glaze over this is tech news briefing though and we are very interested in it. So can you just though remind as what these chips actually are and what? They're for sure. These chips are basically a little pieces of silicon. That have billions a little transistors on them. And they're the kind of brains of your computer that the brains of your phone or the things that really make your digital life possible obviously alongside a lot of other things like power but they're critical components and they're also very difficult to manufacturer not it's not easy for somebody to just make a chip and they're not just important for our personal tack right. That's right. They're important for a huge range of devices whether it be personal stuff but also there's a lot of military applications of chips go into most advanced fighter jets and missile systems. And everything else. Basically anything these days. That's electronic is going to contain some type of chip and these days things contained more and more chips we do have the term. Silicon Valley That's related back to those chips but right now. Those chips aren't made in Silicon Valley. There are they made well. There are still a few chips in silicon valley but mostly these days chips are made in in Asia in the US. Still there's there's some manufacturing US substantial amount fact but a lot of these companies over the years have seen cheaper labor the opportunity for a investments from foreign governments other factors that are driving them to have driven them to move some of their production to Asia. There's also a big market for their their chips in Asia. These days I mean there's growing middle classes is more people are using them there so a lot of these factors have incentivized chip makers including US chipmakers to move more of their production into Asia. So the trump administration is looking to get semiconductor factory is up and running in the US in addition to the ones that already exist here. Does this make business sense? I mean you just described the reasons for companies to go overseas for production cheaper Labor Forces for example. Does this make sense for us to do this on from a business perspective you know? That's a very very good question. A very complicated question one challenge for chip makers in US also as these transistors. Get really really small. They become even more and more expensive to make almost on an exponential expense level. So you're looking at cost versus return investment. If you're a chip maker in any other company so what's happened? Is that as many governments in Asia other places including Israel for example have tried to incentivize the growth of chip industries their countries. They've poured billions of dollars into it. That same type of support hasn't really been available for the chipmakers in the US. So just be has become less economically. Let's say attractive for chip makers to build lots of plants in the US over the years. What's pushed the trump administration to take this action right now? And where are they offering the company's well this is kind of an early phases? The trump administration is talks with companies. Like there's one called TSMC. Taiwan that makes chips primarily in Taiwan to potentially bring factories to the US. There's also they're also talks going on with Intel which is the US's largest chipmaker for Intel to operate a factory a new factory in the US so the administration wants to see more this manufacturing us and is trying to find ways to either incentivize or in the case of domestic makers. Maybe put money toward building some of these these facilities. I mean we talked about supply chains earlier on and I guess that's kind of obvious that right now we're seeing a breakdown in supply chains. Is there any other reason that the trump administration is pushing for this right now? There's the corona virus thing which clearly has affected supply chains across the globe including including Asia. There's also the sense. In the trump administration that the supply chain is vulnerable to potential disruption by China. I mean there's a lot of manufacturing that happened happens in Taiwan in Taiwan's very close to China and also on a fault line. There could be an earthquake there. There are a lot of vulnerabilities in the chip manufacturing industry and how it spread across the globe that I think people have realized have been there for years. But there hasn't been such impetus in the past do much about it because you know there. We didn't have the current Harris. And you know the administration's kind of standoff with China wasn't there to kind of push things along their multiple factors. Now that I think are kind of making the case stronger at least within the terminus station and among some of these triggers for these kinds of factories be built so you mentioned China. How have they responded to this news? Well China China's pursuing its own track. And it's making industry. I mean they've said of funds with massive amounts of money including one last year in October. That was established with twenty nine billion dollars to try to develop the chip industry. I mean China is broadly. Speaking is afraid of being cut off from access to chips that China itself cannot produce. May the chips come from Taiwan. The trump administration is trying to put pressure on a prominent Taiwanese chip maker called tsmc to do business with China and Chinese companies. So we're seeing here is basically the administration trying to speed up development of chips in in the US and slow the slow China's development of chips China's of course trying to counter that anyone can and China also has strong relations with a lot of these companies that have been producing in in other electronics in China's while right. Oh Yeah I mean. China has deep relationships with these companies. Companies I mean most large semiconductor companies. If not all of them have some sort of presence in China were interaction with China. They have feet on both sides of that line. If you want to see it that way. So that's that create some obvious you know. Complications for companies are trying to operate in these two spheres at the same time. How successful do we think that? The trump administration will be in pushing for this new domestic semiconductor industry. That kind of remains to be seen at such an early stage thing that I don't think anybody really has a full handle on what's going to come out of it exactly and how it's going to be structured. How exactly we funded and what. The setup is going to be so until those questions are answered. It's really hard. I think for people in the industry to handicap. What's going to shake out there? Certainly Intel is a big sort of behemoth the largest US chipmaker. And there's a little bit of suspicion I would say among people in the industry that they don't WanNa see Intel reap the benefits of large amounts of money that come from government efforts to fund chip development. These things cost like ten fifteen billion dollars easily. These these types of factories so it's not a small amount of money all right our reporter. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you before we go. There's still some.

"What you can spend their upping the interest rates and they're canceling some cards some cards are just being canceled without any notice there's canceling them all right well that's a problem because we are a consumer driven economy remember we don't create anything we're the buyers of everything as designed not by you not by me but by our government so when we open up the economy how fast are you going to a concert how fast are you going to a a crowded crowded restaurant and why why what is the corona virus like in your town what is the corona virus like in your state if you're living in New York I get it if you're living in New York City I get it but if your livings someplace in the middle of the country why can you imagine can you imagine if if the corona virus would have killed you know twenty percent of the population of two Maureen Iowa do you think that New York City would be closed do you think New York City would have closed everything because there was a pandemic in des Moines Iowa no so why is the mowing Iowa closed because there's a big massive pandemic in New York New York would not have closed for a pandemic in any small town in America he could have wiped everybody out in Lubbock Texas and they still would be open today so why is it reversed why why is it reversed why are we closing all of America down why don't we have any kind of of local control when people are struggling they're opening now in California willing to go to jail because I like I'm going to be jail is better than living under a bridge and you know what's crazy all of these states are opening up their jails did you here in California the guy who was arrested three times three times yesterday he was arrested three times or three two or three times it right three strikes you're out in the California not not anymore guy was arrested yesterday three times but because they decided that no bail they took him to the station house he went out he committed another crime they Connie terminus station out he got out he committed another crime he took over the station house he got out what so we're taking people who are just trying to stay in business and we are taking them and throwing them in jail a jail where they say the corona virus is rampant so we have to let all these criminals out and you're taking people who aren't criminals or just trying to survive you're putting him in jail when did the world go mad and when did America forget the only thing we have to fear is fear itself when did America forget who we are then we are the people that went to the moon we are the people that cross the Rocky Mountains if you've never driven across the Rocky Mountains you must do it you must do it you're probably going to do it because god only knows when the airlines are going to open up again and god only knows what people are going to be willing to get on a flight again but cross the Rocky Mountains because my son and I did it last summer and we drove it we just we drove and we joked to the entire way so if you're a pioneer and you didn't know how far this mountain range was going or what was on the other side even tell me where you'd stop we both said Denver **** far at LAX Lee I said the Missouri River but we didn't drive over the Missouri River I would look to the river and went get have fun guys if I would across the Missouri River I definitely would have stopped at Denver nice place a look at about noon no I don't think so then if you decided to go up over the mountain you get to the first peak to where you think all man I just got to get over this peak UCSC peaks when you're like I would if that's the place I would have killed the guy who convinced me to go over the mountain because now it's too late that's who we are not to me is the one who actually crossed it we need to convince our leadership does sit down shut up well the people lead because we're not afraid quite honestly they're not afraid of us I got a couple of questions for you first question is if you're suffering from constant or frequent pain how long has this been going on how long you want to put up with it in a few days but months years my second question more important how much longer are you willing to put up with it if you have been listening to my show I don't advertise things I don't believe in I don't tell you to ingest some sort of a a cure I don't like that okay unless I've used it myself and I know it works I don't do it I think this is the first my medication if you can call it that the over the counter that I've ever endorsed and I did it begrudgingly I said no for years because I didn't use it and then my wife was like why won't you just try it and I was at the end of my role but I'm not because it's not gonna work well really factor is a company that was founded by Pete and Seth Talbot these two are remarkable people there could be decent Christians that are just a building this really to help people I mean the profits are rich there's been plowed into all kinds of projects that are I mean these guys are just great anyway they develop this thing it's not a drug developed by doctors seventy percent of people who try to go on to order more this is developed for the right reason it works it worked for me in dramatic fashion and.

"Twenty percent down okay well maybe maybe that's what we should have been the whole time I don't know I know only because of the government who wants to give pieces of shovels to everybody they made it really easy to get loans and so what happens you make it too easy are you don't need any I. D. you don't even need a job you wanna hal's here's one in Beverly hills okay well that don't make any sense now chase didn't disclose the previous down payments but records show it used to be about six percent down so you can put sixty percent down well that's ridiculous that's ridiculous I remember when ten percent loans you know where you had to put ten percent down that was a good deal twenty percent was usual I think when I was growing up it may have been thirty percent so the home that you have purchased or the mortgage that you have or the loan would you have been approved under the new chase standards no and chase isn't the only one everybody's doing this why because they are afraid that you're not gonna have a job they're going to be stuck with the bill okay all right equity homes or get our equity loans are getting even harder to get now this is going to have a dramatic impact on the U.

"I spoke out of real distress that people's lives were in danger before my eyes and I was not going to tolerate it so I regret is the way I said it in any way gave people a feeling I've been treated the wrong way that was not my intention it was said with love but it was tough love it was anger and frustration at what I saw on no March it's not happened other places let's be honest this kind of gathering has happened in only a few places and it cannot continue to endangering the lives of people in the community so to all those I understand politicians everyone is sad look you know this is like people gather in the park now it's not like people gather in the park it was thousands of people can we just have an honest conversation here it was not acceptable we will not tolerate it I also will not tolerate any antisemitism ever and for decades I've made it my business to stand up for the Jewish community and people know that won't tolerate antisemitism won't allow it to grow in the city we fought it back many times my message was to all communities and that was written in black and white but it was also to be clear that what I saw I had not seen anywhere else and I was trying to be honest about the fact that the problem that people have to come to grips with and deal with are also people in the community will die and that's not something to get somehow shunted aside as I understand the power words obviously but I'm not going to let that power that concern about words overcome the value of human life we're here to protect human beings and people were put in danger last night members of the Jewish community we're putting each other in danger they were putting our police officers in danger now if I see it in any other community I'll call that out equally so again it's in my passion and in my emotion I said something that many was hurtful I'm sorry about that that was not my intention but I also want to be clear I have no regrets about calling out this danger and saying we're going to deal with it very very aggressively commissioner do you want to speak to the crossing guard issue sure and if I may I may just to echo the last comments on last night there were thousands of people crammed on to one block and when you look at everything that we are going to raise the city when we live in an imperfect world and we you know my department certainly I I have seen instances of not social distancing but I could tell you March of that year as you know there was two funerals last weekend from members of the NYPD we would normally have probably tens of thousands of people at that funeral we we had a handful people have to be accountable for their own actions regardless of what neighborhood ethnicity where they come from we cannot have what we had last night we will not tolerate it we are going to break it up immediately and really you cannot even go to that event that's what it comes out regarding the crossing guards you know we've been hit hard throughout the department and we have really positive news was still applying for a number of members that are in the hospitals but we're on the road back thank god in terms of our cigarettes one of the things that we are still watching closely is who is at work who is essential across many titles and when we look across our guys I think it's well known you you tend to have people that are a little bit older so we are very cautious of how we use those crossing guards in what capacity and people in terms of their age prior medical conditions and the situations we put the men of course when looking at any and all employees of the NYPD how to get the most out of what we use we've we've worked with other city agencies in terms of lending some of our expertise to other city agencies and we would not be against continuing to do that are also going to do it in the smart manner that really watches out for everyone's safety next we have Katie from the Wall Street journal Hey good morning everyone I wanted to follow up with the with the question of many of my colleagues the one thing I get some clarity from the commissioner on is you know the NYPD's involvement with the organization of oxides funeral as a former city councilman David greenfield said I guess that this was a lot you know he tweeted against him information that you know this was organized with the NYPD is ruble I don't know if they need it if you if your department either would be so many people who showed up but questions on that and more details on that when the sun does were issued was it after the matter came and and ask for to be broken up or did it happen before and just for the mayor you know there have been multiple reports are that the governor has cited these reports of funerals and I even drove by large funeral once on the B. Q. E. a few weeks ago so why were you so shocked that this was the case with the teams have been a consistent problem now Katie L. Startin passed to the commissioner again a respectfully I'm not you're you're saying I was shocked this was a case that's not what I'm saying I've been talking about this issue previously that we won't tolerate I don't even said we wouldn't tolerate again I really want you guys to take the fact that we constantly are briefing you and respect that we're trying to give you a lot information and you're all intelligent people you've heard in great detail telling people they cannot gather from all religious communities in their houses of worship that's gone for weeks tell people I can't even do services in a living room because that's kind danger lives we've been talking about all of these dangers in the fact that we're not going to tolerate them and we are going to enforce we've talked about funerals before as well that's why I'm so angry that we have given plenty of warnings worked with community leaders to ensure they gave the warnings and they have by the way overwhelmingly let me make sure this is crystal clear I've said it many times but I know there are many in this town who love to create confusion and divisions so let me try one more time I want to thank the Jewish community leadership I wanna thank the rabbinical leadership who have consistently said should not gather for religious services or anything else because it will endanger their own community I have seen total unity and I appreciate that unity and so it's up to everyone in every community to respect these voices of our city government of the leaders in their communities Evan clarity across the board what is so frustrating to me is after all those messages were so clear that so many people would still choose to gather I understand that they lost someone very dear and important to them but this is still a pandemic people's lives are put in danger when people gather so shocking to me is that after all the warnings something of this size would happen and that's where I'm making very clear unapologetically at the next gathering will be met by summonses and arrests period no more warnings and that's true in every community equal opportunity New York City if you gather I'm not talking again about a few friends hang out in the corner I'm saying if you have a large gathering hundreds of people thousands of people they're not even going to have a discussion it's just we're going immediately to summons and we have to use rest will use arrest go ahead commission Katie and I I think I touched on it before we've been in constant contact with leaders of different communities throughout New York City a different fates I just last week I could tell you members of the Muslim community members of the Jewish community I I spoke to the card just this week this is this is what we do in terms of social distancing probably not a day goes by that myself and the mayor don't talk about whether it's social distancing it parks whether it's the sick right of our employees whether it's testing that came up earlier today mental health yesterday we had and and certainly funerals and and religious offence comes up I I I don't know of anyone in New York City that doesn't know what's going on two months into this I think from from the mayor's executive orders from the governor's executive orders from watching the news every night everyone knows what is acceptable and what is not and conversations between members of the NYPD and leaders who by the way members of the Jewish community extremely helpful M. A. N. navigating circumstances with this over the last two months because I have been a couple incidents but it planning for what shouldn't happen is in no way having a conversation regarding you should not equate that with having a conversation regarding condoning a particular event that event last night never should have happened it better not happen again it can't it is again we can talk about this to the cows come home it doesn't get any crystal clear of than this for me you are putting my cops lives at risk and it's unacceptable next we have Julia from the post hi good morning to everyone I have two questions one for you Mr mayor and one for miss macrae I'm for you you addressed the homeless in the shelters but I'm wondering if you could talk a little bit more about your plan for the homeless in the subways I see that the MCA worked with the NYPD last night to get some people off the trains but it seems unsustainable to do that night after night so what's the long term plan and then for miss macrae I'm wondering if she can just list her specific credentials for co chairing the racial inequity task force and the mental health program for frontline workers given that critics including councilman Reynoso has called the first appointment cronyism and nepotism well let me speak to the homeless issue and then I'd like to preface R. on the question of the commission since I'm the person who decided how to approach that that internal task force I should say now certainly turned a shoreline then on the homeless I had a conversation yesterday with Sarah Feinberg of the MTA to emphasize that we are ready immediately to implement a plan in those ten terminus stations that I talked about in detail yesterday and this is something commissioner Shane commissioner banks and others we all gather together to discuss and have real faith this will be a game changer but to be a game changer we have to disrupt business as usual means replicas of stations and the late night hours twelve midnight to five AM replace the service with a shuttle.

"Weekdays maybe to midnight and possibly extending open on weekends Marcia respect all those questions with our team will follow up with you on the medical examiner because again I'm asking everyone in the interest of fairness all your colleagues have been doing two questions up front one or two and with a stick to that rule so I will speak to your question and the commissioner can speak to the crossing guard question I spoke last night out of passion I could not believe my eyes Marcia it was deeply deeply distressing again this is a community I love this is a community I've spent a lot of time working with closely and if you saw anger and frustration you're right I spoke out of real distress that people's lives were in danger before my eyes and I was not going to tolerate so I regret is the way I said it in any way gave people a feeling I've been treated the wrong way I was not my intention it was said with love but it was tough love it was anger and frustration at what I saw no March it's not happened other places let's be honest this kind of gathering has happened in only a few places and it cannot continue to endangering the lives of people in the community so to all those I understand politicians everyone is said look you know this is like people gather in the park now it's not like people gather in the park it was thousands of people can we just have an honest conversation here it was not acceptable we will not tolerate it I also will not tolerate any antisemitism ever and for decades I've made it my business to stand up for the Jewish community and people know that won't tolerate antisemitism won't allow it to grow in the city we fought it back many times my message was to all communities and that was written in black and white but it was also to be clear that what I saw I had not seen anywhere else and I was trying to be honest about the fact that the problem that people have to come to grips with India with are also people in the community will die and that's not something to get somehow shunted aside as I understand the power words obviously but I'm not going to let that power that concern about words overcome the value of human life we're here to protect human beings and people were put in danger last night members of the Jewish community we're putting each other in danger they were putting our police officers in danger now if I see it in any other community I'll call that out equally so again if in my passion and in my emotion I said something that anyway is hurtful I'm sorry about that that was not my intention but I also want to be clear I have no regrets about calling out this danger and saying we're going to deal with it very very aggressively commissioner do you want to speak to the crossing guard issue sure and if I may I may just tackle the mayor's comments on last night there were thousands of people crammed on to one block and when you look at everything that we are going to rise a city when we live in an imperfect world and we you know my department certainly I have seen instances of not social distancing but I could tell you March of that year as you know there was two funerals last weekend from members of the NYPD we would normally have probably tens of thousands of people at that funeral we we had a handful people have to be accountable for their own actions regardless of what neighborhood ethnicity where they come from we cannot have what we had last night we will not tolerate it we are going to break it up immediately and really you cannot even go to that event that's what it comes down to regarding the crossing guards yeah we've been hit hard throughout the department and we have really positive news was still a praying for a number of members that are in the hospitals but we're on the road back thank god in terms of our sick rides one of the things that we are still watching closely is always at work who is essential across many titles and when we look across our guys I think it's well known you you tend to have people that are a little bit older so we are very cautious of how we use those crossing guards in what capacity and people in terms of their age prior medical conditions and the situations we put the men of course when looking at any and all employees of the NYPD how to get the most out of what we use we've we've worked with other city agencies in terms of lending some of our expertise to other city agencies and we would not be against continuing to do that are also going to do it in a smart man and that really watches out for everyone's safety next we have Katie from the Wall Street journal Hey good morning everyone I wanted to follow up with the with the question of many of my colleagues the one thing I get some clarity from the commissioner on is you know the NYPD's involvement with the organization of oxides funeral as a former city councilman David greenfield said I guess that this was a lot you know he could I get some information that you know this was organized with the NYPD is ruble I don't know if they need it if you if your department either would be so many people who showed up but questions on that and more details on that when the sun does were issued was it after the matter came and and ask for to be broken up or did it happen before and just for the mayor you know there have been multiple reports that the governor had cited these reports of funerals and I even brought by large funeral once on the B. Q. E. a few weeks ago so why were you so shocked that this was the case with the teams have been a consistent problem now Katie al Startin passed to the commissioner again a respectfully I'm not you're you're saying I was shocked this was a case that's not what I'm saying I've been talking about this issue previously that we won't tolerate I don't even said we wouldn't tolerate again I really want you guys to take the fact that we constantly are briefing you and respect that we're trying to give you a lot information and you're all intelligent people you've heard in great detail telling people they cannot gather from all religious communities in their houses of worship that's been gone for weeks town people I can't even do services in a living room because that's kind danger lives we've been talking about all of these dangers in the fact that we're not going to tolerate them and we are going to enforce it was talked about funerals before as well that's why I'm so angry that we have given plenty of warnings worked with community leaders to ensure they gave the warnings and they have by the way overwhelmingly let me make sure this is crystal clear I've said it many times but I know there are many in this town who love to create confusion and division so let me try one more time I want to thank the Jewish community leadership I wanna thank the rabbinical leadership who have consistently said should not gather for religious services or anything else because it will endanger their own community I have seen total unity and I appreciate that unity and so it's up to everyone in every community to respect these voices of our city government of the leaders in their communities event clarity across the board what is so frustrating to me is after all those messages were so clear that so many people would still choose to gather I understand that they lost someone very dear and important to them but this is still a pandemic people's lives are put in danger when people gather so shocking to me is that after all the warnings something of this size would happen and that's where I'm making very clear unapologetically at the next gathering will be met by summonses and arrests period no more warnings and that's true in every community equal opportunity New York City if you gather I'm not talking again about a few friends hang out of the corner I'm saying if you have a large gathering hundreds of people thousands of people they're not even going to have a discussion it's just we're going immediately the summons and if we have to use restful use arrest go ahead commission here Katie and I I think I touched on it before we've been in constant contact with leaders of different communities throughout New York City of different sites just last week I could tell you members of the Muslim community members of the Jewish community I I spoke to the card just this week this is this is what we do in terms of social distancing probably not a day goes by that myself and the mayor don't talk about whether it's social distancing it parks whether it's the sick right of our employees whether it's testing that came up earlier today mental health yesterday we had and and certainly funerals and religious offence comes up I I I don't know of anyone in New York City that doesn't know what's going on two months into this I think from from the mayor's executive orders from the governor's executive orders from watching the news every night everyone knows what is acceptable and what is not and conversations between members of the NYPD and leaders who by the way members of the Jewish community extremely helpful A.

"For Joe McConnell comes from San Matteo credit union looking ahead to KQ weedy and morning edition we learn from N. P. R. news of another possible White House briefing it is tentatively scheduled to start at eight thirty our time on KQED public radio we don't know how long the briefing will last for him on the schedule at nine Alameda county health officer Erica pan joins the show to answer your questions about the shelter in place orders currently in effect in the bay area counties at ten on foreign low wage workers and small businesses are being hit particularly hard by the economic effects of corona virus the ten o'clock hour forum talks about what resources are available for people who may be missing a paycheck and what the lack of work means for contract workers join us right here keep listening to KQED public radio and morning edition continues now it's seven oh this is morning edition from NPR news I'm Rachel Martin and I'm David Greene and this is just becoming all too familiar the stock market opens and then quickly begins to fall this is despite several efforts announced by the trump administration aimed at bolstering the U. S. economy amid the corona virus pandemic when I bring in NPR chief economics correspondent Scott Horsley to help us understand what is happening on Wall Street Scott why is this why are we seeing this like continue this morning David investors are still worried about the big hit to the economy is taking as tens of millions of Americans hunkered down in an effort to slow the spread of the corona virus at the opening bell this morning the Dow dropped more than thirteen hundred points of both the down the S. and P. were off more than five percent essentially erasing most the gains they made yesterday since then they have pared their losses little bit right now the Dow is down eight hundred points or little under four percent but we are beginning to see some some data that actually tells us what we know just from walking around at the large scale layoffs are starting to show up the claims for unemployment insurance it actually crashed computer system temporarily in a number of states I want to talk through a few other developments with you if I can Scott the terminus station announcing today that it is closing the border between the United States and Canada which which is certainly significant does does that apply to trade with which could be a really big deal no it doesn't it is the president tweeted about this close closing this morning he he said that the border with Canada had been closed to non essential traffic by mutual consent but he was careful to say that trade would not be affected you might remember that there was some confusion about a week ago when the president announced a travel ban from visitors on visitors from Europe right he garbled his text a little bit in there it's at first people thought the cargo might be affected too in the the White House later had to clarify that so he he went out of his way in his tweet this morning to say the cargo would not be affected but this does eliminator the hazards of setting policy by tweet we don't really know the details what what nonessential traffic means the president said we might get some details later perhaps at eleven thirty eastern time briefing this morning also waiting details on what the the White House is proposing in terms of helping people as you mentioned you were laid off businesses who are suffering in this pandemic the White House asking Congress to approve a trillion dollars and and we heard a little bit from treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin yesterday saying that Americans just need money in their hands as quickly as I can get we're looking at sending checks to Americans a media flight and what we've heard from hard working Americans many companies have now shut down whether it's bars or restaurants Americans need cash now and the president wants to get cash now and I mean now in the next two weeks that was yesterday and as you said we might hear more from the White House later this morning but but do you know what this point what this trillion dollars would would cover we don't know what the details are still more of an outline that the natural plant this point but this is an acknowledgement from the administration that the very aggressive moves that they've made on the public health side to try to slow the spread of the pandemic are gonna blow a big hole in the economy and that's going to require an equally aggressive rescue on the economic side with the White House is asking Congress for tens of billions of dollars to help struggling industries like the airlines also some form of help for small businesses which have been hard hit and then the centerpiece of this is that direct aid to virtually all Americans and that's the the getting cash into the hands of people as as Mnuchin said what what exactly would that look like like how how much would these payments be worth they're going directly to people and and would everyone be eligible or or or just some people we don't know exactly what the payments would be you know the numbers have been floated by folks like Utah senator Mitt Romney or a thousand dollars there's we also heard suggestions that maybe they'll be more than one check depending on how long the crisis goes on Steven Mnuchin also hinted yesterday that there might be some income cut off so people making more than a certain amount of money might not get a check he he said for example example that millionaires probably don't need this kind of help but we would certainly be widespread so many Americans would would be getting these direct payments we're also seeing the federal reserve tapping their emergency powers last used during the financial crisis to try to keep the credit markets functioning so struggling businesses get the credit they need we talk about something like a trillion dollars help how does the how does the nation come up with with that kind of money had had we for this we're gonna put on a credit card and it you know that there are commas to will say that look this is exactly when the government should be growing the deficit it's it's too bad that we already had a trillion dollar deficit during what were good times until a few weeks ago but with the private sector collapsing this is a time when the public sector needs to step up even deficit hawks are saying this is probably not the time to worry about rising debt to GDP ratios and your chief economics correspondent Scott Horsley Scott thanks you're welcome meanwhile the trump administration keeps scrambling to try and finally making of coronavirus testing kits available but as NPR health correspondent rob Stein reports some public health experts still have a lot of big questions and concerns testing is finally starting to ramp up around the country here's vice president Mike pence at the latest White House briefing it's important American people understand the testing is happening all over the country so far more than fifty thousand tests have been done and thousands more are being done each week by federal state labs hospitals private companies even some drive through testing sites are slowly starting to open Chris Precht your why who's in charge of testing for the White House these are blossoming all over the country we expect over the next few days to be again setting up forty seven of these in approximately twelve states but they're still not nearly enough testing here's Michael Miller from the Harvard T. H. chan school of public health here testing capacity remains extraordinarily limited compared to where we should be and in many ways I would say we are absolutely flying blind at the moment so the federal government is trying to help for one thing the food and drug administration is now letting states get their own testing systems going here's FDA commissioner Steven Hahn state can now take responsibility for overseeing test developed and used by laboratories in their state but not everyone thinks that's really going to help much that's really not very practical Eric plank is with the association of public health laboratories he says most states don't have the legal authority expertise or staff to set up their own testing systems as a practical matter not caller states particularly in the midst of response are in a position to really take that role especially while they are tied up with response they don't have resources to be able to really do that the FDA also says private companies could start selling their tests before they've even finished getting reviewed by federal regulators but that makes plank really nervous dangerous you can get the wrong results I mean you could get false positives in other words telling people if they're positive when they really aren't but even worse the problem of false negative so you're telling somebody you're okay it's negative you can go your way when in fact they have the novel coronavirus then you got somebody with the viruses in the community and they don't know it is so they could end up spreading it to more people now the company is making these tests say they'll make sure they're accurate here's Julie Connie from the American clinical laboratory association it's not just putting a switch we take that responsibility very seriously and labs are doing all they can to make sure that we have the accurate and reliable testing that physicians and patients can count on but some worry that this testing does expand we might hit another problem a shortage of what's needed to do those tests the chemical ingredients for the tests train workers to take in process the samples here's Eric blank again from the public health labs association that supply chain is now streamed the swabs used through the nasal swabs are in short supply extraction kits and extraction buffers are in short supply as to a critical point so the nation's corona virus testing woes appear to be far from over rob Stein NPR news so if you look at Ireland Italy Germany France they have all shut their schools to fight the corona virus but in the United Kingdom millions of students are still in class and here's Frank Lankford reports on why the British government says it is bucking the trend and how this is going over one minister Boris Johnson faces the same question every press conference when will you close the schools answers always the same not yet we think at the moment on balance it's much better if we can keep schools open for for all sorts of reasons Patrick balance the government's chief scientific adviser says research suggests children are not big transmitters of coronavirus when only mildly affected by it and the timing and duration of closures will be crucial here he is speaking on LBC talk radio here you would have to close schools for many months not a few weeks and one of the questions when you start something is how you're going to undo it and when you undo it if you don't get it right the balance is back again many you're unconvinced some parents have already pulled their children from school some teachers are horrified this is utter madness one principal of a London elementary school wrote on Facebook I'm being asked to put my staff and children at high risk like sacrificial lambs Jim Martin has a teachers union he says some of his members aren't comfortable being in school one teacher of a secondary school had a phone call with a member of staff saying she was going to be away followed by another sixteen samples to seventeen Frankel's from teachers before half a state saying they were going to be away from school my personal view is a school leader is that we ought to close schools by the end of the week have an extended Easter holiday ritual work works as a principal overseeing three schools about an hour's drive west of London she said this becoming more difficult to operate because janitorial and cafeteria staff for staying home food clean will soon become problems in all of those things are basic in terms of you know the hygiene you would expect in any environment that's that is the time where we're trying to be more hygiene next to mitigate the risks of coronavirus brainy Taylor's toward she teaches science in the Southland high school many of our students come from low income families and relying on the school for meals and many.

S. economy amid the corona virus pandemic when I bring in NPR chief economics correspondent Scott Horsley to help us understand what is happening on Wall Street Scott why is this why are we seeing this like continue this morning David investors are still worried about the big hit to the economy is taking as tens of millions of Americans hunkered down in an effort to slow the spread of the corona virus at the opening bell this morning the Dow dropped more than thirteen hundred points both the down the S. and P. were off more than five percent essentially erasing most the gains they made yesterday since then they have pared their losses little bit right now the Dow is down about eight hundred points or little under four percent but we are beginning to see some some data that actually tells us what we know just from walking around at the large scale layoffs are starting to show up the claims for unemployment insurance it actually crashed computer systems temporarily in a number of states I want to talk through a few other developments with you if I can Scott the terminus station announcing today that it is closing the border between the United States and Canada which which is certainly significant does does that apply to trade with which could be a really big deal no it doesn't it is the president tweeted about this close closing this morning he he said that the border with Canada had been closed to non essential traffic by mutual consent but he was careful to say that trade would not be affected you might remember that there was some confusion about a week ago when the president announced a travel ban from visitors on visitors for Europe right he garbled his text a little bit and there it's at first people thought the cargo might be affected too and the the White House later had to clarify that so he he went out of his way in his tweet this morning to say the cargo would not be affected but this does eliminator the hazards of setting policy by tweet we don't really know the details what what nonessential traffic means the president said we might get some details later perhaps at eleven thirty eastern time briefing this morning also waiting details on what the the White House is proposing in terms of helping people as you mention two or laid off businesses who are suffering in this pandemic the White House asking Congress to approve a trillion dollars and and we heard a little bit from treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin yesterday saying that Americans just need money in their hands as quickly as I can get it we're looking at sending checks to Americans immediately and what we've heard from hard working Americans many companies have now shut down whether it's bars or restaurants Americans need cash now when the president wants to get cash now and I mean now in the next two weeks that was yesterday and as you said we might hear more from the White House later this morning but but do you know what this point what this trillion dollars would would cover we don't know what the details are still more of an outline that the natural plant this point but this is an acknowledgement from the administration that the very aggressive moves that they've made on the public health side to try to slow the spread of the pandemic are gonna blow a big hole in the economy and that's going to require an equally aggressive rescue on the economic side with the White House is asking Congress for tens of billions of dollars to help struggling industries like the airlines also some form of help for small businesses which have been hard hit and then the centerpiece of this is that direct aid to virtually all Americans and that's the the getting cash into the hands of people as as Mnuchin said what what exactly would that look like like how how much would these payments be worth they're going directly to people and and would everyone be eligible or or or just some people we don't know exactly what the payments would be you know the numbers have been floated by folks like Utah senator Mitt Romney or a thousand dollars there's we also heard suggestions that maybe they'll be more than one check depending on how long the crisis goes on Steven Mnuchin also hinted yesterday that there might be some income cut off so people making more than a certain amount of money might not get a check keep he said for example example that millionaires probably don't need this kind of help but we would certainly be widespread so many Americans would would be getting these direct payments we're also seeing the federal reserve tapping their emergency powers last used during the financial crisis to try to keep the credit markets functioning soap struggling businesses get the credit they need we talk about something like a trillion dollars help how does the how does the nation come up with with that kind of money had at away for this we're gonna put on a credit card and it you know that there are economists who will say that look this is exactly when the government should be growing the deficit it's it's too bad that we already had a trillion dollar deficit during what were good times until a few weeks ago but with the private sector collapsing this is a time when the public sector needs to step up even deficit hawks are saying this is probably not the time to.

"To the BBC well service. This is news out the most intractable of conflicts between Israel and the Palestinians has been on the Trump administration's agenda, since Mr. Trump went into the White House, his son-in-law, Jared Kushner has been tossed to come up with what Mr. Trump has dubbed the deal of the century as positive that peace plan, the US is hosting an economic summit in Bahrain next month. Next week. In fact, Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia will be present. But the Palestinians say they were not consulted and avoid causing the summit, I've been speaking to side Erakat, who is currently the secretary general of the Palestine Liberation Organization, and is the chief Palestinian negotiator. I began by asking him. Why Palestinian officials are boycotting the summit? Today, June twentieth from has been in office for twenty eight months. Did you hear the term occupation by any of them? Did you hear the Tim two states by any of them? Did you hear the term settlements are legal by any of them? Did you hear policians have their mission by any of them? They feel they can dictate a solution on me and the less speech. Jared Kushner gave he said, if Palestinians, accept what we offer then they are good. They can govern their people. They don't accept what we offer the corrupt, and they're not fit to govern I aged with them with a terminus station, and thirty seven meetings. In two thousand seventeen we give every possible chance we have signed agreement, we have a negative terms of reference international security, concert solutions, and we agreed to state solution. Now, what the American administration is doing is destroying these terms of references destroying international destroying the two state solution and telling me once they finish the negotiations and the Israeli settlement council which the plan come here. Boy, we know what's best for you. And if you're exit of this, you're going to be in your corrupt, and you're not good to govern policy. Okay. Let's look at the issue the allegation of corruption when you talked about how the Americans also saying that we will look at the Palestinian situation in terms of that need, as opposed to what you want, which is your rights. Isn't it true to say that there is corruption? Absolutely at the heart of the Palestinian Authority that there is mismanagement of funds, I think three unfair to service. I'm not saying that we've perfect, I'm not saying that we don't make mistakes with Britain as Americans anywhere else. But they have never give us a single directly. They have an agency call United states' International Development Agency. They spend their money through it. So the British and the French and the Germans and Japanese anybody else. So I deserve to have patience because I'm corrupt go, I deserve to have compassion because government as about those two things. Being correlated. It's about honoring questions of accountability. So if the Palestinian ministers all going to give themselves more than sixty percent pay rises when the economy of the Palestinian Authority is on its knees. Clearly informed by the patient, but also informed by mismanagement. Mis was mistaken we do mistakes. And this mistake is being directed by the point is I am on the Israeli occupation. I am not independent I entered a contract with Israel, the pillow the percentage of innovation. There's really government, under the auspices of Merican zero paeans, Arabs to achieve Lucien. Now we have an American ministration that saying, no, it's not gonna be two states. Jerusalem is not to be plus thank capita, but stands don't have determination, and they must accept this. And these people, we conflict is political is about territory is about narratives is not just conflict Judaism to us as Christian Muslim Palestinians are was never a threat is not a threat threat saying. Saying that the Americans are costing a religious conflict -solutely when the NBA's the so-called emboss record Friedman says that it's God would who Jerusalem as capital and win by pay or the secretary of state would say that God and Trump to save the Jews, there, turning this conflict into religious conflict, and this should be a red line to anyone, do you think that this conference environs next week marks the beginning of the end of any notion of the two state solution? I don't think that the notion of the twisted solution ever disappear because it's the only solution if not this year and fifty years, the difference would be, how many Israelis Palestinians will be killed because of these short-sighted political blind politicians who believe that they're here to carry out the settlement program. But you say that the two state solution will never disappear. But there is also the idea of one St. and equal rights for citizens isn't as this will never be released today from my hometown, Jerry on the Jordan river to the Mediterranean. I am a Christian Muslim Palestinian fifty point nine percent of the pollution. Benjamin Netanyahu's nine point one percent of collision, the demographics go against it. So. Questionnaire are trying to dictate. What I call one state two systems apartheid. There are roads in the respect I cannot use today. I have a green card Netanyahu has a blue ID card. I drive a car with why angering license plate method driver's car yellow license plate. There is a deeper, appetite system and the respect and today than the one that exists in the darkest hours of South Africa's, I tied that's the truth. Wants to systems provides gonna work and we we're not gonna make it work. What many Palestinians are saying, equal rights, which is very civilized concert, for Jews Muslims, Christians live equal. It's not double for his thing is an Israeli relations like physics. There is no vacuum, if they killed two state solution that will translate into blood. Palestinian israelis. Let me ask you about the wider Arab world for many decades. Our countries have supported the Palestinian cause in Bahrain next week. Jordan, Egypt, the Saudi Arabia are going to be present. The Palestinians are not do you see this as a sign of a betrayal, if you like no not sound of them, not to go. We want them not to go with them Palestine prison. Mecca, imagine some of their win. We're going gonna go and win the mandate and or delegate anyone negotiate in our behalf. But Mark my words Jordan, Egypt Saudi Arabia are in emirate, whoever will go British French Germans were say, the only solution is that state solution, the only solution the state of Palestine with these as its capital on the six seven borders. But given the economic dire straits at the Palestinian Authority is in isn't it true that there is a vested interest for Egypt and Jordan, those two states in particular to see a real change in? Inside the Palestinian Authority, and that there is animus against Mahmoud Abbas, and their presence at the conference could result in them being on the side of the Americans and saying, actually, this man is not the person that will help the Palestinians in the long term. This man was elected by the Palestinian people, and he's the president of the Palestinian people and our losses. He'll be an office. Dylan new prisons, elected could be when when's the date of we are trying now to get hemisphere except elections. But I'll do something if Mother Teresa were to be the prisoners Palestinians and Monte, cure to be the speaker of Palestinians, and Thomas Jefferson be the prime minister of Palestinians, and they would say together, Palestinian state on the nineteenth. Seven lives with his scabbard. They'll be branded as terrorists corrupt. Not good to govern. And you say this because you think that there is a deep-seated. You're suggesting that there's a deep seated antipathy to Palestinians per se. There is the ideological religious commitment by people like Friedman, questionnaire and disagreement. These are subtler. These are belong to the schools of settlers Friedman used to be a guard in the settlement. Justin green black kids are studying gunshots. Really settlement their commitment is ideological. They don't believe as people regret being part of the Oslo agreement. Wins. Context of the burgeoning settlements, which which really came out of also. I don't regret for a minute trying to achieve peace, because I'm not doing anybody ever no one benefits more from cheering piece more than Palestinians and no one stands to lose more that sense of peace more than Palestinians really could care less. If someone is pro Israel, or someone's propolis time my divided between those who are pro peace and those who are against peace. That was cyb Eric at the secretary, general of the Palestine Liberation Organization..
