So distribution is scheduled to start almost immediately as i briefly went over in the past the main differences between the johnson. Vaccine and say the visor in moderna. Vaccines are johnson. And johnson is one dose. It's easier to store. It doesn't need those super cold. Temperatures so far it's been eighty five percent effective at preventing severe disease and at least in the trial was one hundred percent effective at preventing deaths from covid nineteen. Which are really the most important. Stance provides faster protection. Takes about two weeks to be prevented from getting a moderate to severe case of code and after four weeks there have been no hospitalizations reported or deaths. Obviously lastly there is a lower risk compared to pfizer in moderna of those allergic reactions. The nfl axis cases are already rare with those but in this one in the study there was one case of nfl. Alexis in forty four thousand people as for what causes these differences. This one is made with viral vector technology. According to the cnn article quotes a common cold virus called dina virus. Twenty six is genetically engineered so that it can infect cells but it won't replicate there cannot spread in the body and won't give people a cold like the pfizer and moderna vaccine. It delivers genetic instructions instead of being carried in little lipid balls. The genetic instructions are injected by the weakened virus into arm cells. Name make the pieces that would like part of the coronavirus spike protein which is the knob shaped structure that the virus uses to connect to sells it uses dina virus to get into our bodies and get our bodies used to. It was also this article in cbs. About the astra zeneca vaccine but honestly it just seems like a pr. Move like doesn't seem that impressive. The designer of the astrazeneca vaccine is saying that the plug and play sorta thing. We can easily updated in very quickly. Then when he read they still won't have that update until the fall. It's basically like the same cycle for a regular flu shot. Because it's like the same technology so personally. I don't know if i'd be out there bragging about how quick we can switch this out and updated if it's still until fall now. I don't know how long it would take to switch out the pfizer in moderna vaccines. I thought i read earlier. That the amarna is much easier. Because it's like straight up injecting the virus it doesn't have to wait to sort of replicated or grow it somehow again obviously. I don't know the specifics on that.

Josh i saw this story and obviously this guy was like particularly high up the state department but it i read the story. I thought he had left. He was working there right like until the end of the trump term. That's right chris. I was told. He tendered his resignation on january nineteenth. So that's two weeks after the storming of the capital and it became effective a couple of days later. So i guess he was wandering around at foggy bottom knowing full well that he had taken part as the video appears to depict in this assault on the nation's capital on the congress.

Exactly what he did. There is also a little murky. I have to say. I spoke to a number of people last night. Who worked in this department at the state department office at the state department and a lot of them didn't know him or said they'd only met him briefly he seems to have ended up an office that handled brazilian and what they call the southern cone affairs. I think those are the andes countries and somebody told me he was eventually transferred a believe it or not chris to the freedom of information act office which is not usually the career trajectory.

Money Myths That Can Cost You

"In today's episode. I'm going to tell you about some miss around money. I want you to be aware of also extended warranties. Are they ever worth it. Well we gotta talk because there's something over the years that has puzzled me where i've had. It's got to be in the hundreds of times. I've had people say to me that they lead balances open on their credit cards because they wanna raise their credit score and it shows that there's a a lack of some level of understanding about how credit reporting works and credit scores so much so that survey that lendingtree did in january found that just a whisker under half of people think that. That's true that you don't want to even if you can afford to pay a balance on a credit card a month two zero. You don't wanna do it. Because well i'm going to buy a house or i'm going to do this or that or the other and i got to raise my credit score and i don't know where this urban legend started but the reality is there is zero benefit to leaving a balance open on a credit card because you're paying to average credit card somewhere around eighteen percent interest and when you have an open balance the charges he may going forward. The interest is accruing right away daily interest when you pay the balance and full on a card you have a grace period and then you pay that balance that you developed during that billing cycle in full you got an interest free loan from the credit card company now i liked that so whatever wherever however that legend started that is good for you to run a balance. Forget it you know something else. A third of people believe that using credit cards is bad for you that you always wanna use debit card. So i don't know where that one started. The reality is if you've listened to me for any period of time. You know what. I call a debit card. A piece of trash. Fake visa are fake mastercard the credit card it developed as a product during a time that the congress was not corrupt bought and paid for by who they got money from and so congress wrote into law consumer protections for credit cards. There was no thought no idea of debit card. When those rules were developed in the nineteen sixties. You fast forward. The debit card is a product. Really the tens fifty years later so the debit card in an era that the congress is controlled by corporate contributions. the debit card has no consumer protections at all. That's why you see all those endless ads from visa trying to con you into using the debit card from the banks pushing you to use the debit card because it is such a powerful win for them when you use that debit card. Because let's say you buy something online. Use that debit card and the merchant. Never since you the merchandise what happens to your money. it's gone. What happens if the merchant lies to you about the goods and send you something very different than what they represented with a debit card. You're done your money's gone with a credit card under the federal law. I'm telling you about. It was designed in the nineteen sixties. You have these protections in no there. Were not dinosaurs roaming the earth and the nineteen sixties like my kids thing but you have protections to dispute a purchase with a credit card. No such right exists under the law ned. The banks could have gone to congress when they came up with the idea. Debit cards and not fought having these protections but consumers never even got a fair hearing on having any protections with debit cards. But wait it gets worse. So what happens if a crook duplicates your credit card number or steals your credit card. And they're using it. They're using your car. They're using your number your possession your car. You don't even know how they got your number but they're using it. What's your risk. What's your liability with a credit card. Generally zero maximum fifty dollars in the worst circumstances but again no money is left to your hands. You've just dispute those charges with a debit card. What happens well the criminal. Mtc checking account. You have overdraft. They emptied that to. You can have checks bouncing all over the place and the bank is even allowed to collect. All those bounced check charges. And you were a victim of a crime but wait. It gets worse under the rules. Wait there's more under the rules. The bank is the judge jury and executioner on the determination. If you committed the fraud or was done by a fraudster. They are given two weeks to decide and after two weeks. I can say tough. We think you did it. And you're out the money you're out the money or they can issue a temporary credit and then continue whatever their fake investigation is or after two weeks can give you your money back

With that last night, it was various Buehler's Day off. that was the Sunday night movie I was like, well, he's Shit I. Bet you I bet there's a ton like a new generation never seen. It never heard of it and they're getting rocked by that last night and sure enough on twitter everybody was going bugs picked. Yeah, yeah, and humbly still pumping out commercials for it the Oh here asked. Alan Ruck who played cameron in that? Yeah. He's in two different ads. There's like an Amazon. GYCO. He's in five ads for fears. bueller still looks great by the way. and. Yemen that's how big that fucking movie is. But last night I popped on over to twitter I was like I wonder and sure enough. Yeah. There was a ton of people are like I'd never seen this movie before it's amazing. They don't make sure like that anymore. They just don't sound. It was awesome to see. We got some sponsors shapes pay for this whole shit wagging to be on the air It's a shocker, but they do this shocker rusty Barnet's. I hope that's your real name. That would be awesome.

What state was that in it wasn't mine a Carolina for sure guy high school really. Circuit. A. Big that's I don't know if I would trust a steak from Ma McDonald's. That's a little much. I think. Each stake Bagel The one thing that I did have in college was because Columbus Ohio is like the test market for all that shit is McDonald's had a pizza. And they were testing on a pizza and it was not good and did not make it to the rest of. This infamous boss. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So Rusty Barnette I'm not gonNA. Did you like the steak Bagel Georgia? Oh, I love all kinds of breakfast every time I go to waffle house that cheese steak Omelette or that she stay on Texas toast like so I understand the cheese steak version of this but this is just stay crate. No. No, it's like a skirt steak cut up with some onions probably a real cheap piece of meat, which is it. Really, okay. Might be neat that's dice. It might be a Hobo. Yeah that Stacey. Yeah. But it sounds a little bit like a philly cheese steak. Well, billy I'll try any philly anywhere go but. I'm not I'm not I'm not a guy I won't trust that form of meat from McDonalds. Yeah. I won't I refuse to and I apologize Rusty Barnette and I have not heard of that. Yeah. The only thing I trust McDonald's is the ground beef with Sawdust and rat droppings and that is it I. Actually I think that makes the Burger knowing it adds a little bit of flavor. So. I'm a big fan again hammered the like button.

"Real about. It's on Saturday when I log on to do some emails the oldest in cure twenty two hours in Welsh it again, here's Kristen. WHO HEADS UP THE SUPPORT team? By the time? I I logged off on Saturday night. The oldest were twelve hours IRA. That's better. We're so used to base camp. This is so different. We have to think about support differently, not only because we're busiest fuck, but because people don't want. A few! Response I don't think it's not the same. I've been telling everyone when we have to think about the difference between these audiences at this is. We're still friendly like it's like you're helping a friend, but you're in a big fucking. Hurry. This support team wants their new colleagues to feel cared for and empowered even under these intense circumstances. Here's Ashley who helped onboard and train the temps. They were brought on with the possibility of making their positions permanent. I think it can be difficult to relay that. You're all right when they're not used to. Who You? You are in person. You've not really had any video chatting with them, so they can understand your own open. Communication is the main component leads to trust in leads to correct answers. It leads to discussions on whether things are working now. Should it be working that way? So in a folks have agency temper, not they need to be able to truly express that questions constantly. Welcome never too many questions, never never a wrong question especially in this time when we're really very much trying to figure it all out. The Support Team is like the beating empathetic heart of the company. If they're under pressure, everyone feels it and everyone can see it. The of the many bug reports in question that flood the customer Support Queue. This is especially true during the launch of Hey, you see tickets. Come in, like Oh, I can easily fix this in. It's hard to resist the urge to just fix it. Then it might point to a larger issue like you're just not in a good state of mind to start like fixing things then as you're fixing it. Ten more things are gonNA. Come in, and you're GONNA. Learn that somebody else. Else, is trying to fix it, so it's best just to you know back off and yet you watch the things come in. You're really just looking for anything super bad and you're trying to spot patterns. That part is tough as the person who's built a lot of the stuff. It makes you wanted to get in there and fix everything. Jonas is the Design League basecamp I've been doing these like bug. Fix Rounds for the last month or so it's become like a joke. I have these bundles of them in the number keeps going up, so it's like bug fixes. One bug fix to bug fixes forty eight. Especially when you're under a lot of pressure in answering a lot of cases right now that lead you to Kinda hurry a rush through something to try to get a fix out, and then you might miss some stuff in the Nadu's is a new problem, which is almost worse like it's better for the support team to at least know with the bugs. Are there you have to? Slow down a little bit. We don't have time to get into all of the fires that got put out during these two weeks there were mail bomb attacks including one where Jason got ten thousand emails at once, and there was a dos or distributed denial of service attack. The team also realized that the randomly generated burner email addresses were assigning names like cow and rats and customers are unhappy about that, so the format got changed to avoid these problematic combinations. There were also a lot of ideas. Learn around in these two weeks about how to respond to Apple. The team considered organizing email campaigns lobby apple CEO Tim Cook or making a parody version of the hey. APP that would cost eight hundred dollars. In other big thing that coincided with the launch of Hey, was that the lease on bees camps Chicago office was up Chicago. Employees had to return to the office individually to pack up. Their desks have trouble moving out of places. Because I'm kind of a sentimental person, it's not really so much the place or the stuff. It's the the memories like thinking back of what what lived experience. He had in that place working basecamp kind of changed my whole career trajectory and stuff as I remember like the first time interviewing there in parking nearby, and like being scared about an just you know all those feelings. Weird memories kind of pop back up. You know it's a thing like you like live in an apartment. and. You're sad about leaving, and then you start like taking the posters off the walls like empty out one of the rooms. You like this place kind a mess. anyways, forget about it. It kind of had that vibe whereas like. It was no longer the office that it was when we were there this. Chicago office have been base camps physical home for ten years when the company I moved in, it looked quite different from how it looks today. A lot has changed in a decade. More mature now if something had gotten, this popular is hey. Ten years ago, we would fallen over about ten years ago I didn't interview with Jason Calcutta's on his this weekend startup show so I'm really excited to have David. Hopefully I'm going to get this right Haina Meyer. person. David Hanson. It's not that hard to say. You don't have the competitive spirit to go up against Microsoft's. Or their office suite. We're going on a bunch of their shit. Now for share point, you're not going after g mail. That problem doesn't interest me to company. We had in two thousand and ten was a new position to take on email we didn't have the capacity wouldn't have the experience. We didn't have the skills. We didn't have the ambition. After twenty years of building software sixteen years of running base camp, we were ready and finally kind of that shirty in ourselves. Although maybe people will laugh at that Samuel already been completely cocksure. Since the beginning. In some ways, but not in this way, and that's what was different. We really thought like if not us, then, who, if not now then when? Change is hard, and it's particularly difficult to go through a lot of change in a compressed amount of time in public, and during a period of painful and scary transformation for the world at large. The early success of Hey essentially created a second company within basecamp when that will need additional team, members and resources. People here are just starting to process what he means for the future of their day to day work, and for the culture at base camp, and what impact hey might have on the industry. It was a chaotic. Enthralling but horrible two weeks in feels like twenty years in the Sir Twenty first year in business, we may have another massive hit our hands that the last the last one was from two thousand four Basecamp, and now it's hey, and so this is a chance this. We have to go all in and cash in. Many, many many years of calm for a couple of chaotic weeks to get it right and to do everything we had to do to.

"Heading into Monday, there were two important things happening in the week. The I was getting approval for the newest version of the irs up with the burner email account feature. The second was sending out, invites to the remaining seventy, thousand or so people on the hey, weightless and fully opening. Hey to the public on Thursday. So on Monday morning the team released version one point zero point two of the Hey IOS APP. That's the one that had been held up the previous week and finally approved on Friday night. Jason published an open letter to apple titled Apple, Hey and the path forward and the teams submitted the new version of their APP, the one with the burner emails it was unclear whether there would be any response from apple before ww DC which kicked off at ten. Am Pacific Time on Monday. Good morning and welcome to w WDC WBZ is an incredibly important event to apple, our developers and our users. It's apple developer Chris. That's what everyone calls it because it's like this is when we get all this new stuff again. This is Zach the team lead, not only do develop tools and new. API's and announced new IOS in Mac Os versions, so we get to see. All the stuff. We love this new technology, and they give it a whole bunch to us in one day on. Friday my thought was. I'm not GonNa Watch. WWe This year I'm GONNA show Apple. Not Going to watch it. This is Dylan. The other program are on the team. His jumbled feelings were what a lot of people FBI Camper experiencing at the start of the second week as everyone waited for apple's response, it's all mixed a lot of jumble of emotions, and and feels usually programming doesn't have feels. Like the Tom Hanks movie. There's no ceiling in programming. Crying Baseball? What are you leave her alone Jim off? and Monday the newly hire temps on support started answering customer emails and other twenty thousand invites were sent out, and some other folks at base camp picked up the baton from the weekend and kept working come Monday was like now. There's actually has to work jeff as a programmer on base camps, core product team we. We had a working version that it was based on our traditional sign up like a regular sign up. We want know throwaway accounts. We need to be able to throw them away. Neil we don't want them interfering with paying accounts, and we also have a bunch of restrictions round right? We don't want someone easily able to sign up for one and then spam people. We don't want people signing up for thousands of them and automating that process we were concerned that by you know sort of opening this up to a wider audience, and actually explicitly creating this kind of burner. Her temporary email account featured that this openness up to different avenue of abuse. This is try who had space camps, operations team, and so we did end up spinning up some unique outbound infrastructure, so that those. Those temporary emails were using different. Sending Ip's in the case that if the content was bad or the those email addresses were misused, we limited their impact on the overall experience for how users I was able to think through it in layers like okay, so I really only need to get this done because these burner accounts last for two weeks, which means I have two weeks to really think through my cleanup plan? I think that that's the right instinct to have in software, because things change so often is just think like a few steps ahead. have an idea of a possible future, but realize that that may not be the one that you end up going with so like to think through. What would I do like? What things can I defer? And what are the costs of deferring so something like this? I realized yet. We have two weeks before we really have to make sure these burner accounts. Get cleaned up in disabled so all I really have to do is make sure that the application that we submit to apple like works and hold. Hold up under scrutiny, and so I knew I just had to finish those essential things before Wednesday in. We really had time to do the rest. Fortunately, we got it all done on Tuesday. The APP would the burner email feature went into review. Apple approved it on Wednesday, and on Thursday Hayes doors open to the public know, invite code needed the OPS team under. Troy was in charge of making sure. The system was ready to handle the new surge of sign. UPS In reaction was okay. We're ready. and has also base camps first product launch in the cloud, which is probably another thing that's kind of unique for us about. Hey in the past when we've launched our products, we've usually launched them on our own hardware inter data centers. Thankfully, we were in the cloud because trying to move this quickly. Changing your scale requirements changing higher building at your system would. It would have taken potentially weeks versus days because we're not going off and you know ordering physical hardware from Dell that has to show up and ended up in Iraq. Be Cable together. I think a lot of basecamp. People feel like this. Is this sort of highly unusual unstable crazy environment of this launch? For me, it felt like a calm lodge just because. You had clear decision making with David and Jason. A decision life changing the entire launch plan can happen without you. Being on conference calls all week long. And then I think there's just a level of trust among the people here at basecamp. You know I think there was healthy recognition that what we're trying to do. was kind of outrageous, had the potential to go terribly wrong? Nobody seemed concern about that. It was very much of an optimistic feeling around lodge. Lodge even though there's this part of your brain that's going. This makes no sense by Thursday. A week and a half into launch the support team had been working with new colleagues for a couple of days, and they were chipping away at a wall of emails. Unlike anything they'd seen in recent memory. When you talk about base camp, it's UNICORNS and Emojis, exploration points, and all the details and let me. Me Know more about your business with hey ads. You've gotTA question. Here's the answer and then move onto the next one because there's three hundred other people waiting behind you. This is chase from customer support. You have to realize you're going on for kind of the long. Call here, right? This is not a like a hotdog eating contest. He was a shift, but I think it's. It's a good shift. Who Because? because. It's a shift that lines up more with what has product. Hey is calm. He is quiet. Hey, as emails not going to control me, I'm GonNa Control so you can get a bring them in Saudi to all the support stuff to than that means when you come in to the The Hague you in the morning. There's like this morning. There were six hundred something in there. You start with one. You you answer that one and you move on, and you make sure not to fall into that same inbox, zero mentality that David Jason.

"Our product and the team we ended up with five people that were signed contract signed ready to go, and then five additional people who we weren't sure if we needed them, and we kind of put them on retainer ended up, working out in Andrea fucking busted her ass, also head of people ops getting these contracts in figuring out payroll in all of this ship. She worked just as hard as I did over the weekend we had everyone lined up on Saturday. Which is why I went to bed at seven. I were working and about seven seven thirty. I was I'm going to go to bed. In the morning after we got, everything signed I spent the day. Creating on boarding process. How can I get people? Really quickly trained on a product that is brand new. That were still learn a new onto like we know the general things about this product. We've been using it for months, but now I have to quickly onboard all these people and make sure that they understand the basic outline of what the product doesn't. It's not like any other email server risk. So. We usually do two weeks in person Elizabeth is a principal customer. Support Rep at base camp. She's been part of the on boarding process for many new hires, but it's never been anything like this. After the to in person weeks. Usually it was kind of several weeks of building up and working closely with other team members going back and forth on cases. So the whole process, I think really until someone was totally up to speed would be three months. I was funny. Because that Saturday I was trying to make the new on boarding projects in I originally was basically using our ordinary template and thinking like Oh, I! Just need to shave a little off here and there and then there was a memorize like wait. This whole thing needs to come down like it's all I got to burn it all down. That's. Of Training compressed into about a day and a half we met. We did a video chat. We introduce ourselves. I had them watch Jason's Demo on Youtube. And then I, had them read through all the snippets that we had written the previous week, so they can get a sense of like Oh what are people asking an answer, those questions? That's what those are really good for so sack and Connor. Guys to? Make this new version. Yup by Monday and. Also you need to hire people went Monday to. Ask a lot of lot from a lot of people, but everyone came through beautiful. With the weekend over in a plan in place, we come to act three. There are.

"Like Hayes. Also an enterprise software platform, and that's okay, or maybe it's going to be this free thing. That's okay once again. This is David. Hi Niemeyer Hanson Base Camps Co founder and CTO. We were thinking. Do you know what now is our moment? We have to closed this. There's a lot of attention on it right now, both. Both from the press and from regulators. That's not GonNa last forever, right? We can't drag this out for two months, so we need to really hurry up here and do we usually don't do which was. We worked through the weekend to make this happen to father's Day weekend to come up with a plan to implement plan to test the plan to get it already on on that Monday, the first day of the worldwide developer conference for Apple. We could have a proposal on Apple's desk that we thought. They would take. We want to show good faith effort. We want to show that we want to work with them. They asked they said they want to work on a path forward. So do we so we're going to get to work and do the work and give them something. They can see immediately first thing Monday morning. We had basically a day and a half to build it. I got I got a call from. David and Jason at some point on Saturday morning again. This is Zach the irs lead, and they said they kind of have an idea about what they wanted to do. Can we get this done? We have some friends and near L. to go out to their cabin in Montana the weekend. This is connor a designer on the team. I bailed on work early on Thursday, enjoyed Friday mostly not working and. Jumping Lake swimming and all that fun stuff, and then on Saturday morning I looked at my phone at like ten or something, and there's a text from Jason. while. That's never happened before. A very. WHO's putting me? He says Hey. Connor I note Saturday, but need to draft you to help out with something import Zach's on board and we need to pull off a miracle Monday morning. Starting at that moment, I might go He says I know tomorrow's fathers. As we have to see if we can get this done today, can we talk? The I often basecamp, add. The collins spun up a product for started Laos News Zach Forty. Chunk of progress on it, and then Rosa being the jars person she has hopton to help, and also to help. You wish so many fires on so many box on so many emergencies. This is Rosa, a programmer on the security infrastructure and performance team I was so focused on then that I didn't even lend about the -opoly until some frame outside base. Go that link me to Tucson tweets from dairy. Anisa what what is going to have no idea? I think the challenge to that. We had to make some indications to our sign up roses very thousand bike week. What hey is also a programmer on the security infrastructure and performance team? This was regarding like completely isolated season for signing up in doubt Gatien which is completely isolated from the that signed up works low completely isolated from our billing system different emails. It's very simple to describe intensive work. It represented a decent amount of work. Going Back to David said Nita's to happen over the weekend. Come up with the plan. Check implement the plan. Check test the plan for that. You need base camps, one person. Quality Assurance Department Michael as sort of started seeing some messages from a few folks on the team that they had this work lined up one of the things with with Qa. It's like it always helps to sort of know about things earlier. Sort of gives your mind the space to think through. Concerns or scenarios that may be weren't anticipated by someone else. The team didn't have the luxury of time. In this case, they had to implement and test the best version of the APP they could make an a weekend. Here's Jonas the design Lee base camp. kind of Saturday was like planning and figuring out in like the first attempt at implementing it, and then Sunday was kind of like thinking through a little bit more and be like Hey, is there anything we forgot here? We're going to have one more shot to make sure it's right I would say we do so many things where sleeping on it makes such a difference especially when you're under stress or making a decision quickly we try to take a little time away from it and come back because for whatever reason in the morning. You see a differently like you. Like what was wrong with my nighttime self close thinking something about like the end of the day. You get tired unless you're not thinking as clearly in the morning. Everything's clear again. By Sunday, which happened to be father's Day? The team had a working version of the hey IOS APP that they believed would satisfy apple's demands. People could use the APP without signing up for a paid. Hey, account, and they would just receive a randomized email address. That would last for fourteen days. But another issue had bubbled up during the first week of launch. Base camp had been sending out. Hey, invite codes to people who'd signed up on a wait list because of all the hype around launch by the end of the first week that invite list had ballooned to almost one hundred thousand people to try to move through the list. The team had started sending out thousands of invite codes a day versus the original plan, which was just a few hundred, but it still wasn't enough. The whole purpose of the list was to allow us to slowly roll this thing out in a controlled manner, but when the list got so large. It was all sort of out of control. Anyway, let's figure out how to just get this out. We want everyone now to be able to use this thing. This timing is right so Jason and David decided to move up the public launch from sometime in July to June twenty fifth. exhilarated public launch would have implications across the company, and especially for basecamp support team under the original plan where just a few hundred invites, a day would be sent out at first Jason and David had planned to answer all of the hey, related customer support emails, the rest of the support team would be monitoring incoming questions, organizing responses to the most frequently asked questions and staying on top of the queue for base camps, other products, but once the Apple Situation Started Jason David's attention was diverted, and the support team was facing a mountain of emails. They're pulled away with all these media interviews. And were in charge of this cue that is growing and growing and growing again. This is Kristin. Head of base camps customer support. I actually thought it was gonna be okay through through the whole week. And Saturday morning I got a text Jason. Asking me to hire five tenths to start on Monday mornings. Like am I gonNa do this. Am I GONNA? Get this done like what the fuck! I wasn't sure I got a text from Kristen are head of customer support. Andrea is the head of people upset based Kim. She said that we had been tasked with hiring five. At least five temporary customer support representatives to to help out with the hate you. Very intentionally designed process for hiring an for on boarding. And this was none of that. We talked about a couple options. The first was people that we interviewed that we liked in the last round. talked about just tapping some friends or friends of friends that might be interesting because it was such short notice that we really had to cover all the bases. We are very upfront that it was not going to be a typical experience. When it comes to on boarding at basecamp or even working at basecamp was a plea almost like. Can you help us out? It's a short period of time. It's going to be a little bit chaotic, but it's going to be very exciting and you're gonNA. Have a huge impact on. Our business and.

"Back, basecamp there was still a lot of activity. Jason wrote an open letter to apple, explaining that his opposition to I wasn't just about the thirty percent cut, although he did find that to be extremely high versus the single digit percentages that credit card processors charge. For Jason The bigger issue is that using apple's AP system would force customers to go through apple instead of base camp if they needed help, we have a platform. We have a lot of people who pay attention what we're doing and I felt like I had some points I. WanNa to make specifically the first one around the thirty percent thing not being the biggest issue here. WHO's right? Is it to tell me tell us to tell our customers how we can interact with them? We spent a lot of time. A lot of effort in hired a lot of people to do things our way. We do things really really well. We're extremely proud of our customer service. A Response Times responsiveness. You can't really service your customers in a way that you want to. If you care about customer service, if you push people through the APP store, you can't handle refunds. You can't handle partial payments. You can't handle hardship exemptions. You can't give people half-off. If someone is a billing issue can't help them you to say. Go go ask Apple, and when you ask Apple. Sometimes it can take three to five days to get a response. We're known as to get back to people within an hour. Jason's letter went up on Friday and the workday ended without any response from apple, however a day earlier on Thursday Phil Schiller Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing and give an interview to tech crunch where he'd suggested a few. Few ways, hey could comply with apple's rules. So when David took to twitter on Friday, he had changed his tone slightly. We drew the line in the sand. We're not gonNA. Pay You thirty percent. You can't just show up and shake down on the day of our launch after you've approved our APP and then ask US thirty percent of revenues, not gonNA. fucking happen I said he changed his tone slightly okay. I didn't say he got a full personality transplant, but There are other things that could happen. Phil Schiller you've gone out in the press and asked for other things and that you would love to see us in the APP store I. Don't know what's in Phil Schiller hearts apart. Maybe he really does love to half pay in the APP store I like that romantic notion. Let's just take that at face value and say look. This is what he wants to and. And we've somehow just misunderstood. These incredibly bake APPs store rules and Phil Schiller is now telling us what we're supposed to do so that's the olive branch extended after seeing. WE'RE GONNA burn the house down in his tech. Crunch Interview Phil Schiller had suggested a number of things. Hey, do things like charging different prices for the APP on the phone and the APP on. On. The web or offering a free version with other features, Here's one of David's responses on twitter for all the snark in exasperation. We're going to take at P.. Schiller his offer quoting Phil. Schiller now there are many things that they could do to make the APP work with the rules that we have. We would love for them to do that now. Quoting David. David again we won't ever do the AP but try some of the other quote. Many things and quote then around ten PM on the East Coast where Zach Dillon live. Everyone on the team got notification so I. Get a notification on my phone that there's a new message from APP. Review interesting thing year with this Zapper News. They don't send anything in the email. You know it's like a bank. Her like adopted. They send you an email saying to go check something else so there's no content. They'RE GONNA win log into there to the APP store connect website. That's where all this kind correspondence takes place to actually see what the messages so a lot of anxiety. I know there's a new message we haven't done anything so who knows what happens next? The note read in its entirety hello. Jason. David's tweets and look forward to working with you on a path forward. This has been approved sincerely APP review. Board, I just a base camp, and I was basically like what is happening, and it was so casual and informal in so shorts that we figure I figured this had to be written by Phil Schiller or someone very high up in Apple. If you're just like a normal employee and you're communicating about a issue, that's gotten publicity. You know you're really light your very careful about it. And this was just always. We saw David's twenty. Okay, cool things a great by. Wonderful because. This was version one point Oh two, which had been approved. This is the version that was being held up for a week. It was the center of all the controversy, but that's not the end of this. Because one point or two is a bug. Fix version like that's not the future of the product. That was just the bug fixes or being held. What are we going to find a medium where they're happy? We're happy. You heard Jason this is not the end. Apple dropped this cryptic note late on a Friday night ww DC, they're big developer event was scheduled to kick off on Monday sign ups for Hey and the first week of launch had wildly exceeded company expectations, and there were still tens of thousands of people on the wait list for an invite code, and with that. Let's head into act to a miracle by Monday. After Approving version, one point zero point, two of the HEY APP and saying they wanted to work on a path forward apple kind of vanished again there was no further communication via the developers portal or a phone, call or twitter. All the team had to go on was Phil Schiller's quotes in that tech crunch piece I was thinking about other ways that people can use email again. Here's base camp founder and CEO Jason Freed and I was walking around and I saw a lost dog. Add on a telephone pole and had someone's email address on it. We have a cat mcph I lost my cat. I don't know if I'd WANNA put my email address up. There would if I could put a temporary address up. There know thinking about like with craigslist. When you put an end up on Craig's list, they hide your email address essentially from the public they give you this like weird. Token is one. This would actually be really interesting thing. We could offer temporary randomized email addresses that expire. It's a trial. There's no path to move on. It's not an actual You'd WANNA. Keep. This is just a temporary email for people who wanna use an email for something that doesn't. Doesn't last very long. Everything lasts forever. There's some situations you wanna sign up for something. You don't want to give you real. An email address that's we came up with this idea and that satisfied apples demands. Because it was a free thing, it was limited. It did not continue into a paid thing. There was no path from this temporary email address to paid, and then we also had been building. Hey, for work. which is what we're using at base camp now. A couple of other companies are using it which is a multi user version of Hey where the company pays, and the employees don't, and that's another condition that. Allows in the APP store without having to pay thirty percent I don't even know which one of them is going to do it either. It's going to be this thing about.

"David works the press and social media angles. Jason filed an official appeal with Apple Jason's regular writer. I think it'd make compelling points Davis been out there on twitter is getting some noise and. A lot of times. This thing happens where know something happens to review, and then it makes noise, and then they reverse it, so I had every hope that point that it would be the reverse. They say okay. Yeah, this is fine. This is like the other APP and other APPs Gray area, or whatever, but it's fine. We were hopeful at this point. It had gotten a whole. Whole lot of media attention, the overwhelming sentiment was not favorable towards apple. We thought that apple was GONNA want an out at this point I used to. We were pretty surprised actually when they talk to the press before they even told us about the sign of rejection, it goes on twitter, and then I saw post. Go Up from techcrunch protocol on the verge like simultaneously. This was plan. Apple had sent the response to base camp, and a select group of media outlets at the exact same time, and their rejection came back to this fundamental disagreement over whether hey, needed to offer in that purchase. But the part that really stung was something they said about base camps history with Apple. One line read that base camps APPs quote do not offer in APP purchase, and consequently have not contributed any revenue to the APP store over the last eight years and quote, they said well. You've been in the APP store for eight years. You haven't contributed. That is like wow, this is this is a couple days before they're about. The have their really good wwe see where they tell other developers how much we appreciate you. Know. We have not contributed to APPs store revenue. However, apple sells thousand dollar phones and these thousand dollars phones. They can only sell because of this entire ecosystem, so to say that we have we've added no value to their system is that that's offensive to a situation where both of us benefited provided, a marketplace for an apple provided an easy way for customers to get to the software. And we contribute to the IPHONE and MAC. Os being valuable products that people want. The real heartbreak here is that base camp? The company is full of apple fans. Employees Use apple products at work and in their homes. Apple's design has inspired base camps products the introduction of the IPHONE. IOS changed the course of Zach and Dylan's entire careers. And Apple is a crucial part of Jason Freeze Origin Story. Eighty seven I. Remember going over my friend Adams House right next door. He's like Jason. You gotta check this thing on. Like what is he's like just come over so like all right, so I run downstairs in my house I run across the lawn, I. His front door's always open I wave. Hi to his mom. Sylvia and I caught the stairs and. And, he go into Adams bedroom in there was there was a Mac se running Microsoft flight simulator in blew my mind, and that's like I, got into software gotten to design I got into running a business all because of apple, and that moment of seeing that thing that Mukasey for the first time is how I've always wanted people to see our products. When people see hey, for the first time to go. This is totally different. Part of it was that apple was one of the good guys. They're a big company. In late stage, capitalism I I know that, but also thought that directionally apple was aligned with my own values, and I was developing for. You know a platform and and contributing to the wellbeing of accompany because I do believe that what I do contributes to well being. And they contribute to mind and I thought that we were aligned. There were moments over those two weeks where. I thought to myself like if apple just didn't let us put an APP in the APP store I was actually contemplating retirement like literally. Saying like to be in this industry, if I can't run my own business, my own way, and we've gone through all these these steps not to become someone else's company, but to stay independent, and now there's a company out there saying well, you could be independent as long as you give you thirty percent of our revenues like that's worse than V deal. Why does it have to be this way out? That's really I think what ultimately got me riled up and I lost a lot of sleep over it and I. Feel like I was ill. Like physically ill because of the stress and things, a lot of other people felt same similar. If not more stress anxiety for maybe different reasons, you know in all this time we head huge amount of positive feedback on all levels all platforms so. Exciting time now we're just trying to like fight to. Even have are out there for customers. WanNa bail outs I. Don't want to go in front of Congress yet we get sue apple, but they have like two hundred billion dollars in cash. They could just. Draw down to raw dead, so it's like not even a fight could be from. Zach. He's one hundred percent in like. Let's do a confrontation like let's just. And, that's conner base camps. IOS Designer David like I'M GONNA burn this place down and the side. Conversations were kind of like no need to pick a fight to poke the bear. Since we had one point Oh in the APP store. We had customers using out. There are still bugs, so we're still like trying to focus in might go through our. Blog less and our feature lists trying to figure out what's next was just really really distracting. A make any forward progress. It was still uncertain whether it's. Going to be an APP at all anymore. Jason David handling the original strategy and we were told. Don't work on earned that purchased or like any sort of like work around Akiva kind of put on pause in many respects. It wasn't really any room where all you need for us to be doing anything until they decide what they want to do. Apple denied Jason's appeal on Thursday. Day Four of launch, this is hugely demoralizing to base camp, and the team in particular, and the level of publicity was still at a fever pitch, but there were so many other things going on in the world like protests following the killing of George Floyd Some people at base camp struggled with managing their emotional energy. During this time. Here's Jane Cam data analysts. She'd been pulling all kinds of numbers during launch week, including figures on apple's clout in the mobile industry given the context in that week, and that moment of what was going on. The the level of outrage for instance might have felt looking at those numbers at another point in time was much more muted. The fight to improve the rules and to decrease the slice of the Pie. That apple gets you know. It's an issue worth fighting for instance issue with fighting, because not just base camp faces and a lot of. A lot of companies that don't have the privilege and the platform and the independence to be able to make these statements like just there's a lot of fear. Also people are fighting for the right to be able to just like exist without being killed by police at the same time. The days in which I was pulling, these numbers were also the days in which some of the public outcries were the loudest and the poll to really. Be. Doing more felt the strongest. That was one of the things that I was having a hard time with with balancing. Everything was going on in the world, and then being super focused on the launch of Hey, this is Lexi, a customer support representative at base camp. WHO's based in new? York by the Friday of Launch Week. Seventeen person team was fielding. Thousands of Hey. Emails a day. Friday was also June eighteenth, which commemorates the day in eighteen, sixty five, when federal orders ending slavery were read in Texas two years after the emancipation proclamation this year, June eighteenth was marked by celebrations and protests across the US this is a revolution in. The civil rights movement happening in our era right now and I just could not bear to be looking at a computer screen for another day. I had to do something I had to be on the street I had to be connecting with. I, also a white woman, and I know that me observing June teeth is very loaded, and and I'm open to learning about that and trying to continue learning. But it felt.

"The. Plane was to launch on June fifteenth with not just a Web APP but mobile APPs for. ANDROID and desktop APPs for Windows Lennox and MAC the first sign of trouble landed on John's lap the Friday before launch. His team is in charge of the desktop APPs including the one for Mac. We submitted our desktop. MAC APP to the MAC APP store. And they rejected outright. The reason for this rejection was because hey doesn't offer a way to pay for the service inside the APP for that. You have to go to the web. Apple has rules for developers around in-app purchases or I A P for short. You'll be hearing that term a lot in this episode. Basically, if you're selling something, you have to go through apple system for collecting payment and give apple a cut. We just forgot that that was an issue directly our company has. Only, dealt with IOS APPs. We've never use the MAC APP store before so fortunately. You can install Mac apps without that MAC APP store just by hosting the files ourselves Nubia who's new at the company in March on our team, we through our curve ball, and said here's the new plan. And she pulled off moving the entire Mac, APP, to our own infrastructure in the day. Okay, so that was a pretty straightforward work around, but this hiccup with the desktop was. was just the beginning unlike MAC OS, there's no way to directly distribute mobile APPs for the iphone and IPAD for that. You have to go through the APP store and Follow Apple's rules that includes using their payment system. If you want to charge customers for your APP and giving apple, thirty percent of what you make, there are however many examples of companies that have successfully skirted this. The defacto facto rules everyone operates under which is a combination of written and unwritten. Is that if you have another way of doing payment? than you cannot advertise. It were linked to it within the APP Dylan is a programmer on the Iowa team, so you can offer a service that has a log in like Netflix for example. And you can have people create accounts and set up payment. Elsewhere but you cannot in the APP. Linked to that or give people any information about that. This netflix style setup is what the team landed on. If customers wanted to. Hey, guess, they'd sign up on the web at Hey, dot, com, avoiding apples, iep and the hey IOS. APP would be careful not to advertise that sign up method so with that decided. The team got ready for launch day. Hey was planned to be launched on June fifteenth and we knew that getting it on the APP store typically on a new product where they were Hewitt. More scrutiny is scary. Week ahead of time. We submitted the APP. And that was. That was one week before the product's launch. And then it was approved. And we are a great. We have an APP to go ready for June Fifteenth Day of launch. Then we built more features than we fixed a lot of bugs. Then we submitted our bug update. This was on Sunday night, and hope was that are bug are bugs except date with approved pretty quickly and most people would naturally. We ever see the good version later in the day and Monday. Monday morning we were rejected. You know I didn't think it was a kind of a crisis situation yet like every Iowa's developer, we've had various rejections Zach as a programmer and the lead for the IRS team. We thought oh well. We'll flame, and then they'll say okay. That's fine, we you know we got confused. We made a mistake. You Know Zach and I. We both woke up probably about sitting in bed and I know I was messing back before the pay. What do we do what we do? And we said we prepared a response. For Apple, explaining that, Hey, as a web service and the IRS, APP is a compliment to that Web service all count management. All payment is done to the web service, and that's what we explained. The team wasn't too worried at this point, but morning on Monday. Apple rejected the APP again. Here's Basecamp CEO Jason Freed we didn't know the depth. Of nervousness anxiety, we were about to enter the pit. It's funny because we were tempered because the excitement for the project off the charts, and so we were excited, but also kind of terrified because we couldn't deliver what we wanted to deliver, which was a great APP on every platform. One point was great, but I mean if that was the last person we could ever do that wouldn't be great enough we. We have other things to do and other. Other improvements WHO WANNA make if we gated there. We'd be in real trouble so that that was the start of it, so we said you know we're just going to resubmit. There are so many stories on the Internet and personal experience. To that one day we got a reviewer that was accepted at next day. We got a reviewer that didn't so. We thought we'd spend the roulette wheel and navy will. Maybe we'll get the reviewer this time. WHO's okay. So, later on Monday, we submitted a new binary changed the screen shots. The AP very quickly went into review. which is unusual. And then Saturday review for. A day, which is also very unusual, and usually it doesn't take that long. When it's review shows saves already been approved. It shouldn't like. They have to learn it from scratch and she. Kind of doing their their sanity. Check on. It so once start to be interviewed for while you're kind of like alarm bells go off like Oh. This is, there might be a problem here. This newer version that was stuck in Apple's review process was one point point two and then on Tuesday saxophone rang. Very little phone calls and ninety nine, seven or spam. You know they're all from my like my local area code. They'll tell me about my car. Warranty your credit card, Bill or something. This one said San Jose. I don't know anyone there so i. kind of thought like Oh this is this is apple, and I've been doing Iowa's development since two thousand eight, when they released the first case, and I've never talked to apple before. No says hi. I'm calling from Apple. We're talking about you. Review Beloit than kind of tells me that this is not a mistake. They've escalated it internally, and they are rejecting it. They're not changing. Their minds is basically this is. How it is right. It wasn't a discussion. I jump right into basecamp and high mentioned everyone, Connor and Dylan everyone the Iowa team. Jason David said well it's. Apple, and this is not good so version one point zero point you had been rejected for not offering in APP purchase version one point Oh whistle still in the APP store and people could download it, and if they were in the first batch of customers who received hey, invite codes they could create accounts and start using the APP, but now the team was worried. Apple would yet version one point. Point Oh from the APP store so basecamp, Co founder and CTO David Haina Myer Hanson. Did what he does best, and took the fight to twitter on Tuesday afternoon D. H. tweeted, there is no chance in bloody hell that we're going to pay apples ransom. I will burn this house down myself before I let gangsters spin it for spoils. This is profoundly perversely abusive and unfair douses is the company. We were looking at an existential threat from our perspective in the sense that we'd already made the ethical choice that we were not going to give apple thirty percent. You can't launch a major mainstream email service. If you're not on the IPHONE, so if apple was going to kick us out at the APP store because of that. We would already have burned half the house down and then to finish the job, we would have sought every recourse in the book and we talked to lawyers about it. Like what is it look like? Just sue apple for this kind of stuff and they went Let me tell you you have a good case. Against one point five trillion dollar company. Who's going to hire three of the highest payed law firms in the US to absolutely borough you with subpoenas and positions, and hey, here's your life for the next ten years. By Wednesday the third day of launch, David's tweets were blowing up the dispute with apple over their rejection of the hey app was getting covered by CNBC Bloomberg wired the verge and many other tech outlets. The publicity was creating a huge surge of interest in. Hey, so while.

"Excellent start here. You heard the problem. So what is Congress planning on doing about it? Is there something preventing you from achieving? Your goals is work related stress or insomnia slowing you down better help. Online COUNSELING SECURELY CONNECTS. You with the professional licensed counselor log into your account any time to easily schedule video or phone sessions and securely exchange unlimited messages with your counselor. It's therapy two point. Oh support wherever you are whenever it's convenient and start here listeners. Get ten percent off their first month. Better help with the code here star. Now go to better help dot com slash here. Let's think about how this all ships what we were seeing a couple of weeks ago. You remember how happy everyone seemed to be with this big stimulus bill drug on America go to their mailboxes and find four figure checks to help with their bill to all Americans. I say this help is on the way since then. No one's gotten their checks because it takes a while to get that going and more importantly it is increasingly clear that healthcare concerns will continue for months and livelihood could be impacted for years if nothing happened so if that reality has changed how is. Congress adjusting their game plan. Let's check in with ABC senior congressional. Correspondent Mary Bruce. Because Mary and no-one ever thought a single check in the mail was gonna do the trick for everyone but like is twelve hundred dollars. Is that beginning to feel insignificant? Where you are. Yeah I mean look. The more unemployment rises the more critical. It is that Washington does more and both sides of the aisle new even though that two trillion dollar package seems like so much money. The point is that was never going to be enough problems that we don't realize now that we're going to have to grapple worth so I think the odds are high there will be a covert four and while lawmakers were able to quickly put together that last package and passed unanimously. They're already squabbling about the next stimulus. Bill still continue on emergency medication but in the next bill are focused will also be on recovery. It's clear the Democrats being led now by house speaker. Nancy Pelosi want to go big. She is making an urgent call for action and she's eyeing a plan that will be very heavy on infrastructure addressing some of the most critical impacts in vulnerability in America that had been laid further. Bayer by the corona virus but Republican leader. Mitch McConnell is telling Pelosi to stand down. He's warning Democrats at the next. Bill can't include unrelated items that this isn't a chance. He says for Democrats to simply get in all of their political priorities while Democrats really say in order to stimulate the economy to grow not just tried to plug a hole but actually grow the economy. You're going to have to go big. Don't Democrats have kind of a decent cheerleader in a guy named DONALD TRUMP? Like that seems to work well for them. This is where it gets really tricky. The president has voiced some support for doing a big infrastructure project we will spend eight trillion dollars in the Middle East and yet our roads are in bad shape. Our bridges our tunnels bad shape. There's been a lot of talk about doing some kind of infrastructure plan in Washington for years now in fact it's become a bit of a joke because it never seems to happen but focusing on infrastructure is a good way to put a lot of people back to work it seems. Republicans are making it pretty clear They're not GONNA LET NANCY. Pelosi lead this charge. So that's looking months or years in the future like building a new highway right now. Let's talk about the next couple of months because healthcare right. Somebody gets sick right now. They're being told you know. Don't even go to the hospital or doctor's office unless you feel you might die and guess what if you get to that point. I hope you didn't get laid off and lose your health insurance. What are people supposed to do? This is a huge concern right now. Because of course it's unemployment skyrockets so too does the number of Americans without health insurance now. The president had suggested that he might be open to reopening enrollment for Obamacare in the midst of this crisis. But he now says he's not going to do that I can't commit. I have to get approval from it. I have a thing called Congress. And of course remember his administration has been urging the Supreme Court to dismantle the law entirely. So what can you do if all of a sudden you realize you don't have coverage in the midst of this healthcare crisis and you really want it well if you recently lost your insurance because you lost your job despite what the president is doing you do have a sixty day window to enroll through obamacare? No you didn't have health insurance to begin with. There's a chance you might qualify through medicate if that doesn't work if you don't qualify for Medicaid you can check and see if you live in one of twelve states that have decided on their own to reopen. Enrollment is such important information. Right there. Mary if you lost your job if you're listening and you're tuning out. Just go back thirty seconds right now. Listen to what Mary just said. Because there are ways to protect yourself but you gotta do it in sixty days thank you mary. Thanks Brad place like new city for a second. We're advising New Yorkers to wear a face covering when you go outside and will be near other people across the city. Parts of the state. Life is changing so quickly so dramatically that even bad stuff is changing in ways that you might not have anticipated during the last few weeks. Social distancing increasing overall crime has now plunged by nearly twenty percent want to bring an ABC senior investigative reporter. Amer Katersky who covers New York law enforcement because Aaron? I feel like everything feels dangerous right now but in a weird way like it's also dangerous for criminals. I guess right. Is that what we're seeing? We are seeing a dramatic reduction in crime for the month of March especially in the last two weeks when the mayor imposed his executive order that kept non essential workers home and everybody out of school crime fell in every borough about twenty percent overall fewer murders fewer shootings fewer robberies but of course keeping everybody indoors poses challenges of its own yet. In what way because we we are seeing certain areas rise as well. What are they will think about Brad? There's a real concern with everybody cooped up at home about other problems that that could pose child abuse for example or alcoholism but particularly the cops here are concerned about domestic violence. Home visits have been curtailed. Obvious reasons but those high priority people we need to in touch with to make sure that Violence isn't happening behind closed doors. There's a real concern that. Although reports of domestic violence were down in March the police commissioner says. He doesn't doubt that it's happening. It just means that women may not be able to get out of the House to actually report to police who are at risk relationships. They are now trapped with your abuser in there. Don't have those pockets of time to call a domestic violence counselor in hotline Soviet. Nypd has put a team of domestic violence officers on patrol to try to take reports and check on those that may be prone to domestic violence based on incidents in the past there was an individual who was standing next to a Asian individual and started spraying for breeze around his feet and around him and read the other point of worry for the NYPD. Hate crimes they don't WanNa see them at any time but especially during the ongoing corona virus response. They're seeing a couple of different incidents that tend to fall under two motivating factors either the victim's race meaning anti Asian reflecting where the virus originated from China. I need to know or the perception that somebody may have the virus. And that's considered an Anti Crime Dylan Marino's family says. Their son was discriminated against by a teacher who claims.

Crime is largely down Brad because officers are getting sick at a rather alarming rate as we speak about six thousand New York City. Police officers are out sick.

Erin talk about how kids are staying home from school. That means a lot of them are getting lunch at school. They're not getting milk. That means milk producers are sending their products to grocery stores. Well guess what a lot of people stocked up a while back and don't need any new milk this week on the shelves that means the cartons used to bottle. This new the gas spent a ship. It it's all a waste right now. So farmers of America has been telling dairy farmers just dump it. Just get rid of it. We'll pay you. Even the problem is they can only afford to pay for spilled milk for so long. In the meantime dairy farmers had just seen their prices rising for the first time in years.

"Breaking news for our viewers in the West a stunning report just out. It shows a record shattering. Six point six million Americans filed for unemployment benefits last week. That is double last week's record. Report was among more than six million Americans who've lost their job or had their hours reduced again. This is not cumulative six million just last week. I want to start this morning. I go on. Abc's chief Business Economics reporter. Rebecca Jarvis. Rebecca I mean you had warned people. This could be five million. This could be six. I thought that was the had to be an exaggeration. It even higher. It's a staggering figure. More than six point six million people lost their jobs last week and filed for unemployment insurance. And we know as your guests just said this is probably going to be about March thirtieth time calling today trying to apply for unemployment and they can't even get through because the weights are so gigantic guests. They're overloaded websites. Have so many people on them even just to get signed on took me five hours. He phones have so many people trying to call them that the number of people who are actually getting through and truly filing is smaller than the actual number of people who are getting laid off and losing their jobs. Here's the thing. Forty five at least forty five states at this point are in lockdown and the most optimistic read of this information is that everybody is doing exactly what they've been told to do. Stay home if you're not an essential worker if you're a business shut it down. As revealed in our new poll one in three Americans say they are an immediate family. Member have been laid off or lost their job as a result of the pandemic. The question for anybody who's lost their job after the immediate. When am I going to get my unemployment? Insurance is when am. I going to get my job back or what's going to be waiting for me on the other side of this way to have an com to make money sitting here pretty much devastated and hoping that this situation nightmare. What ENDS THE MONEY? Is there for the unemployment insurance? But the bigger in a longer term sense. Is those jobs for AD. Did this new sense of how bad things could get. Because I know you've been starting from the rooftops like this is going to be bad like pay attention but does this give us a new sense of what the the trough would be the bottoming out. Well I think it's a reality check. These numbers are a reality check and when a few weeks ago before the shutdowns really started in most states when people were out with expectation some analysts were out with expectations of how high unemployment could go and they were unfathomable at that point but the St Louis Federal Reserve for example is forecasting an unemployment rate of more than thirty two percent. That would be three times. The worst unemployment rate of the great recession. That would be forty seven million Americans out of work and then on the other side there are plenty of big companies that will bring employees back but of course there are the small businesses those thirty million small businesses that are having to white knuckle it through these really difficult complicated times watching yer secure quickly is horrifying and it is hard to imagine that everybody. Unfortunately all of those businesses are going to make it to the other side. We really want to try and keep as much as possible right now. We're just locker by the choice. This is many more weeks to go brad. And that's just it's it's really tough to hang on if you're a small business and even for some big businesses in like you've been saying if you did lose your job or you just cannot make next runs payment that Nick's cell phone bill. There are companies that are offering some help some extensions. But it's generally on you to start making those calls to get on those websites of Rebecca Jarvis. Thank you thank you Brad..

A lot of people are trying to apply for unemployment and they can't even get through six million jobless claims would have seemed unfathomable a month ago. We'll could these layoffs lead to even more layoffs. Meanwhile twelve hundred dollar check suddenly might not sound so impressive. The money that was never going to be enough.

"The opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal this is Potomac Watch. We talked the last podcast about Nancy. Pelosi's push for a fourth Kuroda Virus. Relief Bill from Congress and her idea of getting significant infrastructure spending in it. A president trump has now endorsed that in theory He tweeted with interest rates for the United States. Being at zero. This is the time to do. Our decades long awaited infrastructure bill. It should be very big and bold. All capital letters two trillion dollars and focused solely jobs in rebuilding the once great infrastructure of our country Kim Thi trump is a builder. And so this has always been the kind of thing that appeals to him and he is huddled with. Democrats on infrastructure. In the past. I think last year there was talk. Maybe of doing this. Why has it broken down previously? And will this be any different? Well this has always been the great hope right because this is the one area where everybody agrees in. Theory trump loves to build things. Democrats love to spend money and it's never worked out in the past because their disdain for the president has been so much that they didn't want to give him a victory or work with him on anything so it from my perspective the risk here because by the way I think this is a terrible idea but the risk here is that we now have a new vehicle for working together right which is a response to corona virus And Nancy Pelosi is positioning. This says a stimulus. The president is positioning this as a stimulus. I think one problem though. And you're gonNA see that kind of clash as debate goes forward. Is that Nancy? Pelosi's idea of stimulus is to give a lot of money to schoolteachers okay. Donald Trump made clear in his his tweet that he sent out about this. It needs to be focused on the economy and building. That's broken down in the past two as well because of those very divergent visions of what An infrastructure bill looks like and that could still be a hurdle for anyone to get over. But even if you even if you grant trump his vision of it that this would be bridges and roads and ports and dams dredging and stuff like that It's hard for me to see how this is going to be a stimulus in during the rotavirus bill. I mean how was in this. The problem with the Obama stimulus during the financial crisis. That was shovel ready. That wasn't shovel. Ready Be Bill. How fast could this buddy possibly get anywhere near the actual economy? Yeah well I think I'm as Kim SORTA suggested you know. We learned that. The definition of shovel ready was That it goes to teachers pay and pensions and so forth but again I I think Kashmir on the same wavelength here. I don't think it's just not GONNA HELP. And Corona virus. I think it's it's kind of a dubious idea in itself and especially for our economy. Now I don't see how the this solves the problem that we have. I mean the problem we have is that we've stopped a lot of production because of this so there's a lot of demand there just isn't the supply. I don't really know what this does because once some of those steps are lifted. I think there's going to be a lot of pent up. Demand satisfied There's GonNa be lots of gearing up on the economy and I descend from the idea. Also that bold equals more dollars you know when I worked in a White House. People would say that sometime. We need a big ticket thing. No no small beer and that always got me very nervous because I think very few examples. Where were that's worked just to pick out one example though of why this we'll take so long to get through Let's talk a little about Nipah. The National Environmental Protection Act Which the Journal has has written a good amount over the years So that's the the law that requires environmental studies of new infrastructure. Projects like roads so there is a study of that in the White House that said that The average final environmental impact statement From two thousand thirteen two thousand seventeen took four years and ran six hundred seventy pages and remember. That's an average so there are some really wild outliers like a EXP- expansion of an interstate twelve miles of an interstate. That took like nine thousand pages or something like that So in January the trump administration has Propose a rule that would streamline this a little bit and put presumptive limit on those impact statements of two years and three hundred pages but that rule. I don't think Kim that rule I don't think that's finalized yet. And so that could help but still I mean you're still talking about two years before any of this money would potentially be put into the road. It's not finalized and it's also because it's an executive order or rule I. It's not necessarily a true. Were four and that's one of the other problems with this whole debate. Discussion is that. It's the rest of the Republican Party and the rest of the Democratic Party to not just Nancy Pelosi and trump and there's long been and understanding among Republicans that they have a price if there's going to be public money spent on infrastructure right. Because you're GONNA have some people say oh you know this is just something we can will put a little bit of seed money and will leverage private sector dollars to do these things but the reality is you're going to have to put a bunch of government money into do this and Republicans have always said Democrats if you want us to do that and commit this money to. You're going to have to allow for regulatory reform so that these projects can get done at lake off the ground. Get moving within a matter of months and because the environmental left basically controls the Democratic Party. That's always been a place. Democrats won't go. So you still have that fundamental problem there in the it's maybe. Donald Trump could pushes party to go along with this but there is going to be an enormous amount of Republican skepticism. To move like this if there wasn't some fundamental change in the law and a Senate Majority Leader Mitch. Mcconnell is already Already playing this down a little bit saying that you know we need to wait and see how the last emeals Bill went Before we do anything else so you know maybe this will end up as another donald trump tweet and nothing more but we'll have to wait and see Let's talk a little bit now about Joe Biden who is still stuck at at home But trying to get his message out so he has launched a new podcast called. Here's the deal with Joe Biden. And he does seem to be shifting his own tone a little bit so he put out a a two or three minute web advertisement where he's lauding healthcare workers as American Heroes Cut with images video of of People in face masks and ambulance crews in that kind of thing. Bill I mean. Do you think this is a better tack for him right now than attacking the president which is what he had been doing previously. I do but I still think it's A. He's in kind of a bad position. Look he's in the position sort of of the person who selected to give the rebuttal address after the state of the Union. I mean you have. The president of the United States speaking from the podium of Congress with all three branches of government represented. There's no more powerful image and then the poor guy that's stuck rebutting just look small by comparison and the former vice president stuck in his basement. You know what this confusing equipment that he can't master. I think it's better tone but it's a difficult time for him because whether or not you like. Donald trump or grew with them with the American people see is the president taking command and so forth. And it's very hard to counter that I do think if he wanted to be noticed it'd be less to To Berate Trump I. I don't think the American people are in a mood for just carping and a people who are trying to do something even if they're wrong about the I do think he could. He could show his leadership within the Democratic Party by calling the Democrat Congress to better behavior and more cooperation and so forth. This is a time to put past the politics and do it. I think that would actually make him. Look more like a commander of chief but he. He's in a very you know he's in his basement. He's been very difficult position to command the same kind of respect and attention that the president hasn't that has nothing to do with either Joe Biden himself or Donald Trump himself but just the nature of the position that he's in and Kim. It's hard to know what else he might be able to do. At this point. I mean if he went out somewhere To Detroit and tried to hold a press conference or something he'd be charged with breaching the rules of social distancing And don't forget he's in the age group that is pretty vulnerable to this virus. So what other options does he have? Well actually it was really interesting. He did do something unique and different on Tuesday. Which is I guess. His attempt to continue to try to campaign out in the states even though he can't officially campaign in the states but what he did on Tuesdays he actually endorsed a pair of Wisconsin. School district referendums which is highly unusual for someone to be at the kind of national level running as a presidential candidate to bother with something like a school referendum. But these referendums are in Milwaukee which is Wisconsin's largest school district and racine both are heavily Democratic districts The these referendums were all about getting more dollars for school. So the Milwaukee one was cost taxpayers about eighty seven million. The racine one has about a billion dollars and his argument. Was You know? We need to invest in our public schools and our students. And so I'm supporting these two referendums so this is his way of trying to get some more headlines within the state and a state that by the way he has not yet been able to campaign in at all yet but a state. That's going to matter in the Democratic primary races as we go forward. These are the kind of I don't know what you would call them. Actions that they're having to resort to to to get their name out even in the state yet to decide on a nominee orthodox campaigning. That's interesting Bill How do you? How do you weigh? What the outcomes of that are. That are in play here politically. I mean what's what's been interesting to me. Is that throughout this crisis? President Trump's handling of it has been rated very very well by voters and his overall approval rating has been going up a little bit But it's also notable semi that if you look at the The real clear politics Averaging of polls On the general election trump versus Biden. I mean I know it's early But by not doing too bad. He's currently up average by about six points I mean what do you make of that? The those those numbers moving in tandem. Yeah I don't really make anything of the latter because until campaign starts I think you see a lot of that I remember the polls about Hillary Clinton Saying kind of the same thing. It's it's very abstract until Donald Trump the campaign really begins Donald Trump and the RNC. Every everyone gets full gear and the Democrats getting full gear to attack on the On the ratings of the press conference I think the president has moved a lot from his initial things. He's I mean it's one thing about the bat. Donald Trump if you put aside the noise that always accompanied him just focus on what he does. He often adjusts now. He'll never admit it right. He'll never admit he changed his mind. Or something I mean. I think it's fair to say that he downplayed the virus in the beginning..

"From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac. Watch Lloyd House words about a very tough two weeks ahead and president trump calls for a two trillion dollar infrastructure package welcome. I'm Kyle Peterson with the Wall Street Journal sitting in today for Paul Zhigo. We are joined by my colleagues. Kim strassel hillock him. Hi Kyle and Bill mcgurn High Bill High Com so during the corona virus. Press briefing on Tuesday night President trump was solemn Might be the word for it All Rita a few fragments of his opening remarks Our country is in the midst of a great national trial. Success in this fight will require the full absolute measure of our collective strength love and devotion every citizen is being called upon to make sacrifices every business is being asked to fulfil patriotic duty And I want every American to be prepared for the hard days that lie ahead. Kim. That seems like a more subdued to- than we're used to hearing. Yeah and certainly a more subdued tone than last week when the president said. Look. I'd really like this to be over by Easter and we're gonNA open up again. And he was quite honest with what changed that tone which was that. The scientific advisers presented him with a lot of very disturbing evidence about where exactly we are right now. In this curve flattening exercise were doing and the fact that it simply was going to take longer time for The country to get back to a place where it could go back to business and they. They presented those numbers. We got some of those yesterday to which was very heartening to sort of just see that. They know they seem to know what's going on. There is some sort of plan But he was very very open with the fact that we are in the middle of this. And there's going to be a rough couple of weeks coming up the the health experts as you said. They gave an explanation of the modeling that they've been showing to the president. They showed him a bunch of it over the weekend as he was extending those social distancing guidelines to April thirtieth The headline number yesterday being that the virus may kill one hundred thousand to two hundred forty thousand Americans In the health experts best estimate at this point one of the slides that grabbed me bill. was from Deborah burks the Corona Virus Response Coordinator and showed a line graph of the number of cases in all fifty states with New Jersey. Far above the rest as you might expect just hearing the numbers in the news Sorry excuse me New York far above the rest and the New Jersey about halfway down And then everybody else clustered below that and her point was that the need to keep the rest of the states from turning into New York which means staying home. Even if it doesn't look like there's a crisis in your state at any given moment. Yeah I think that I think that's really important because one of the things and looking at the measures on looking at Statistics collected by the international health metrics and Evaluation Center at the University of Washington. And they do a state-by-state breakdown that's very helpful with graphs and one of the things they show it parallels what you said that trump the chart that doctor burks had they show that they're expecting April tenth to be the peak day for deaths in New York. Eight hundred forty five. They're projecting on that day and after that date will go down for New Jersey. It's April ninth so the hope is that The we can. We can flatten the curve. Here to flatten it to flatten it elsewhere. But I think that that's important for another reason. I think one of the frustrations for people is. We're doing all these different things. A lot of states are taking different measures. Different countries are taking different measures. And since we're on the left side of the curve always see is death climbing no matter what steps we take. I think if it does peak if people start seeing it actually coming down that we're on the downslope even though there's still be a lot of people that die and a lot of people that get infected. I think people will be a little more encourage by the steps. We have to take and I again. I go back to You know we might be a little more able to refine the steps. We take who we apply to right. Now we're kind of doing the one-size-fits-all program of everyone sort of stay in place and not work but once once we're on the downslope. I think we might be able to do more with testing and tracing figure out who's immune who might get back to work. What kind of industries might go back and so forth and be a little more refined and I think people would see this is not amendable? You know that that were again making progress and I think people would be more open to some of the measures if they thought it was really having an effect. I I think that's a fair point so even even the the hopeful news out of Tuesday's briefing has doesn't seem to have any specific targets on it so there was a slide That Dr Anthony Fauci discussed Where he's showing the curve in Italy's starting to turn down now that there are three or four weeks into their mitigation measures He says there's little inklings that that The mitigation is working in New York But there's there doesn't seem to be a hard target or of any kind yet at least not that I'm seeing That's being laid out by the White House And there are a lot of people who are who are not in New York interlock farther from the crisis zones One one point to talk about was We mentioned yesterday. The American Enterprise Institute report written by several health experts The one of them being Scott Gottlieb the former FDA the FDA And he suggests some triggers which may be would be helpful one of them being that You know once you have sustained reduction in cases for fourteen days then that might be a trigger to To ease off the distancing Indiana state by state region by region. Basis Maybe Kim do you think it would be useful to have if the White House laid out some kind of targets like that that people could Look toward so yeah. I don't think there's any question that that's going to have to be the way forward. Despite the fact that we have these news cable stations that are constantly showing US cumulative numbers of cases in cumulative numbers of deaths this is always been happening on a state by state basis. And if you look at that report that you mentioned Kyle. They talked about a trigger of having a sustained reduction in cases for fourteen days but also pointing out that a state's going to also need to have the capability in place to test. Everyone was symptoms and to very aggressively jump on anyone who was found to have them and who test positive to go to their context and kind of lock this down so that it doesn't get back out of control again and the report says that it could. Well be the case that even if a state begins to relax social distancing measures if they see a spike again they might have to return to them. So this is going to be kind of state by state on a case by case basis. It's not necessarily going to be one day. You flip a switch and the nation's back on but it would be helpful to get some of this information out of not only think tanks but out of The leaders who are In charge of managing this crisis Just give people a sense of what the What the next step is one sign of the Times. I saw this as a news item. I thought it was interesting. Walmart has announced that. It's going to be doing temperature. Checks on all of its employees when they report to stores or distribution centers I mean that's a huge move. A Walmart I believe is The United States is largest employer about one point. Five million people. Work there I mean bill is that A taste of what the new normal may look like at least until we potentially have a vaccine for this virus. Yeah I think there's it's one of many steps look again I think right now. We've taken a kind of One-size-fits-all approach imposing the lockdown and keeping everyone for work and. Obviously the smarter solution is going to be able to discriminate to identify. Who's a carrier whose immune and so forth? It was interesting. I was talking to a friend from Hong Kong yesterday where I live for ten years. You know very modern place. They had a tough time with SARS. You know years ago. So they don't have a lock down they've banned. They've closed schools big religious services and other big gatherings. But they're they're closer to social distancing and they're using that in public spaces as well so instead of locking everyone down in the can't work they're putting it out in public space. They're doing You just mentioned the temperature and a lot of big buildings. Say have these things kind of like you walk through the airport. That scans you for temperature. Right is not the be all and end all but I think it's something like ninety percent of people that have is get have a temperature. So that's one way of doing it. They're also doing social distancing in the public square so again rather than closing down restaurants you go to a restaurant it'll be open and you can sit there but they'll be a table or to between you and the next Party so. I think as we have more information we might be able to do that. I think right now looking at the models and looking at the peaks for New York New Jersey which again or just about a week out. I think the president is preparing us for some really bad times like before we can get to that point. We're going to have to still climb up that hill and it's going to be. It's going to be brutal and I but I think it might look very different after two weeks if people start seeing that in the two worst cases New York and New Jersey that we've arrested the The increase in. It's starting to go down. Yeah that's true and The temperature checks are aren't a surefire thing. I mean the head of the Centers for Disease Control is now saying that you know maybe up to twenty five percent of the people who have this. Corona virus may not be showing symptoms Which is part of what makes it unusual and particularly liable to spread. But you could still catch seventy five percent. Maybe of people and stop them from interacting at a pretty low cost of some thermometers We're talking about the corona virus fight and the new talk of a federal building spree near listening to Pelvic. Watch from the Wall Street Journal social distancing slows the spread of corona virus. So we should all stay home to lower the risk for everyone more INFO at Corona Virus Dot Gov.

"two weeks" Discussed on Start Here

"To go through a very tough two weeks. The sobering presentation from White House officials. That convinced the president to change course meanwhile increasing number of cove in nineteen cases or American healthcare workers actually made the decision the other day not to see my son and I don't know what I'll see him again nearly twenty percent of New York's EMT's out sick or reporter followed some of the ones still working and telecommuting his tougher adults. What about kids? The district try not to sin introduced new concepts challenges. School districts are facing as the virus spreads from ABC News. This start here. I'm Brad Mielke. Let me start you off with some good news this morning. It comes from the countries that dealt with the novel Corona Virus. I in Wuhan China this morning. The shopping districts are back open. Widespread sicknesses have reportedly ceased altogether. So this is what gives us a lot of hope. This is the case finding in Italy in Italy. Meanwhile they're beginning to turn the corner. In new cases cases are still rising but not as fast is tapering off. Some emergency rooms are even starting to empty out. The point is there is some light at the end of the tunnel for places like this. The bad news is we can't see it yet here. We have done an incredible job. We're going to continue. It's going to disappear one day. It's like a miracle it will disappear remember a few weeks ago. President trump was saying corona virus. This will barely be a few days ago. He was insisting we could still be work by Easter we yesterday at the White House. Something seemed to have shaken him. I want every American to be prepared for the hard days that lie ahead. We're going to go to a very tough two weeks. Dawn was the sign proclaiming. Fifteen days to stop the spread the Clarkston restarted. It says thirty days gone with the comparisons to the flu. It'd be doctor or deb up and say I have numbers but I'd rather have them say the numbers if you don't mind speak today question instead. President trump came up and introduced after FAUCI and Dr Deborah Burks who showed the rest of the country the presentation that changed his mind. And so as you saw on that slide that was our real number that one hundred thousand two hundred thousand and we think that that is the range we really believe in hope every day that we can do a lot better than that and you could kind of see this dawn on. Everyone wants the magnitude because this was not political bluster. This was not a threat eastward data driven doctor saying best case scenario within the next few months best case we will see twice as many Americans die then we lost in the Vietnam War. This is the stuff.

"two weeks" Discussed on Beyond the Baseline

"Those are the things that they come up to me and and mention and then that's when i sort of realized well maybe this is what sort of bleeding through through so i think that moment <hes> really really got through to people and <hes> was something interesting that come out of it but then you know as you you say veteran a doll always going to be a huge storyline. Everyone always wants to see it happen <hes> especially here at the u._s. Open <hes> so oh i. I definitely think that that's probably one of the biggest and hopefully it happens. I mean you have a you know same thing here. We we do have some some great players. I mean good for murphy for getting back to a place where he's playing really great tennis. You have diego schwartzman in there and <hes> surprisingly grigor dmitrov veterans opponent for today as well so you have a lot of good names in there but i think obviously <hes> you're underlining federer nadal in that draw so far. They played at the french open. They played at wimbledon. It would be nice if they played at the third straight major <hes> you know they. They've played all of the other three three majors at least four times and they've never met here. They've come close one time. We were a novak djokovic forehand. Return away from seeing those two guys is <hes> in the final but you know at at almost one dollars thirty three rogers thirty eight and the fact that these two are the two favorites to make the final at this stage of the game is just remarkable. I mean the the flip side of that of course is where's the challenge coming from and uh-huh. We've talked about sasha's their of these really struggling with his competence. As game has served. He was sent packing by diego schwartz. We were talking suppose than ever since losing stand bring at the french open. He hasn't been the same player felix o. j. C. had a terrific first half of the year and he's struggled lost austin the first round <hes> i think we're all trying to balance excitement federlal marveling at how they've sustain their careers how still at this stage in the game these are the two guys who you know. Presumably one of them's gonna take the title the big three era it keeps rolling on but there is a little bit of an underbelly of <hes> we we keep waiting for someone to step up and saying not anymore. It's my time now. Maybe it's daniel medvedev though he's he's played a lot of tennis. Maybe he's it's stan dan. Who's played this role before i mean he's going sports major right. Maybe it's off the board candidate. The fat bertini's kid who it's a big ball or you know dmitrov the trump. If you say <hes> you've ever beaten roger federer. They've they've played at night. I do think <hes> do to be on talent alone. Certainly has the ability ability but i do think one of the sort of sub themes of this event is that this whole next gen once again has has underachieved in a major for sure and i think novak djokovic. It's his injury. I think that sort of puts a microscope even on on the fact that this group is really dominating. I mean here's someone who has had an incredible year and he is part of this group and now he you know falters with injury and who's there as you say left in the draw behind him none of these next gen players that were discussing. I mean as you say we have some you know some good some good people at the job schwartzman's playing great but where whereas you know zarif's not here you have a lot of people who are in here and <hes> the the theme continues and it looks like <hes> you know this whole year will be dominated by that story line for sure. It's been the three years since the player outside the big three when a major and that was banned by bring us oh <hes> no one under the age of thirty on the men's side has has won a major. It's it's a real balancing act. Between let's not sell these three titan short their incredible they would be incredible any arab but the flip side of that is his <hes> would be nice if one of the young guys stepped up what what was let me ask you this. What was your favorite story..
