Reopening schools during the COVID-19 pandemic
"Now we have contributing correspondent. Gretchen Vogel she in two other science news staff Jennifer Cousin Franklin Megan. whalen worked on comprehensive story on reopening schools during the coronavirus pandemic. Hi, Gretchen Hi, this is a very complicated story and tell you the truth. I'm a little frustrated because I. Just WanNa answers, but there are so many unanswered questions out there about current Ivars in children for example, how likely are kids to get an infection if they're exposed to an infected person? Do we have any numbers on that? The story was was fascinating, but also really frustrating to work on because we kept saying. Why are these answers so? There are no hard and fast answers, but there is accumulating evidence that kids newborns up to for purposes, eighteen are less likely to be It's not clear why that is, but it does seem likely that children are about one half to one third as likely as adults to catch the virus in the first place. That's not one hundred percent clear, but let's consistently showing. Showing up in a lot of data then once we get past that question of how likely is a kit? Get infected. We ask the next question. It's still open, which is if they do get exposed to infection and they acquire it. Do they actually get sick? That is also not a number that we know in part because there's so little testing of people who don't. Don't show any symptoms and to find out if somebody is infected, but not showing any symptoms, you have to test a whole lot of people for the trifecta of unknown. How likely is a kid to transmit this infection? So there is some evidence out there saying that even if they do get infected, they are somewhat less likely to share it to other people. That's correct. Correct. There were a couple of intriguing case studies early on I was a kid. In France, who was infected, a family friend was in a ski chalet with his family, and t caught the virus. He tested positive, but didn't yet. No, that between the time he was infected, and and the time he was tested. He attended ski school and Language School in his regular school. Officials, tracked down more than seventy of his contacts and none of them ended up being infected. Even two of his siblings were uninfected. All three siblings shared other viruses, some minor cold viruses. They all had it was that they had contact with each other, but the coronavirus did not pass from this child to anyone else. They could find so that's really intriguing, but it's only one case right right, so it's hard to extrapolate from that. What our story talks about are some newer data from France that are also intriguing in a little town north of Paris. There was pretty large outbreak in high school early February. Teachers happened to get infected way before anybody knew that the coronavirus was circulated in France and so two weeks between the second of February and the fourteenth February when the school went on winter break, the virus had a chance to spread a few weeks later, when researchers looked at how many people had antibodies to the virus, they found that thirty eight percent of pupils, forty-three percent of teachers and fifty nine percent of non teaching staff had been infected, the also looked however at elementary schools in the town and there they found three kids who based on when symptoms had started, and the fact that they also had antibodies to the coronavirus. They figured these three. Three kids probably had been infected by their family members, and then attended school, because they weren't very sick, but they were infected, and they checked with all of their close contacts, and it did not look like they had passed it on to anyone. So this is getting at the idea that there is a sliding scale that younger students might be less likely to carry INS spread versus older students in the high school years. Certainly babies seem to be least impacted and toddlers, and then elementary school kids, and then as you get past the age of ten or eleven, the risk of both acquiring and passing on the virus does seem to increase and high school. School kids seem to be fairly good at both acquiring and passing on the virus be not quite as good as adults, but there does seem to be an increasing risk of both catching and passing on the virus as you age, but that's great news right if that's true, that is really good news for safety of babies for the safety of preschools, and for the safety of elementary schools we have now are setup. We have the limited knowledge we have about their risks of getting sick or infecting others, and then we are talking about reopening schools as the end of summer approaches. What parents would administrators governments are trying to do is balance the risks to. To the health of children and staff against the risk of not having their kids in school, what kinds of things that have taken consideration on that other side of the equation? What our kids missing out on besides actual learning? If they don't go to school in the fall, such a balancing act, because schools are really really important for kids and for society as a whole right, they go to school first contacts, and for their emotional and social development, and then lots and lots of kids and the world get a fair amount of their food at school. Especially, the most vulnerable kids are really dependent on some of the food programs that are at schools. Also sadly, schools are place where some of the most vulnerable kids who might be subject to abuse at home where some of those signs are picked up, and where other adults in their lives can raise red flags and say hey. Maybe something's not right here, so there have been signs that child abuse cases have also been going up as kids have been staying away from school. There's a lot of pressure to reopen schools, but there's. There's not a lot of information about how to do that safely. But as part of your reporting on this year team did some pretty extensive research into how all these different programs that have reopened have fared he. You talk a little bit about what you looked at and what you're looking for. We did to a lot of research. We're intrigued because I live in Berlin and Jennifer lives in Philadelphia and Megan lives in Washington DC. DC Jennifer and I, both have elementary and middle school aged kids Jennifer's were at home. Mine started to go back to school with other kids in Germany at the beginning of May. This part time just a couple of days a week. My fifth grader for example went four days the whole week part time, and then was two weeks off, and then again went four days, and then was two weeks off. They were trying to keep. Keep class sizes super small so that if somebody did happen to be infected and attend school, they would only infect portion of their class. Not Everybody and they tried to keep the desks spaced far apart, so they were trying to keep as few in the classroom as possible so that they can keep a distance from each other. That was my experience in Germany and we wanted to know how other countries had approached the question. We looked at everywhere from South Africa to Benin to South Korea and Japan and Taiwan and lots of countries across Europe. Canada had opened some schools. Most schools in the US had stayed closed in part because summer vacation tends to happen a little earlier in the US, so we took a look at what had happened in those countries that had opened up to different degrees, for example the Netherlands started back with their elementary schools I and small classes, and only part time, but then they gradually as. As things went well, and they saw very few outbreaks in schools gradually opened more and more than we at the same time checked to see if overall rates of infection in the country had changed and in many places we found they hadn't. There's a big caveat there. Though most of these countries had fairly low rates at the time that they open schools, and they had the system place when an outbreak maybe happened to detected and to identify context and isolate them for the two weeks that you. You need to isolate people to make sure they're not going to pass that on. So what is a common practice? When a student has positive for coronavirus, some places would close the whole school. If one student was infected, other places would only isolate the people who had been in direct contact with the student, so their classmates with a subset of classmates that they had been attending within their small reduced size classes, and then that teacher, or any other teachers. We didn't see a big difference in. In end outcome race between those approaches. What did seem to make a big difference when you looked at all these different schools what seemed to make the most difference was close a small, so the kids could stay separate and wearing masks. Now there were different approaches in different places for example, most places in Germany made them optional, although some in some schools, everybody had masks on it and others only when you came in or were in the bathroom or in the hallways. Did you wear your mask? Israel was one interesting example where they did not try and reduce class sizes, so they went back to their fairly large classes thirty to forty kids. But they really did mandate masks for everybody, and that seemed to go k, until it got super, Super Hot, and then it was just impossible to ask people to wear masks all day, and so the health department and the Education Department said Okay Fine. Let's leave the masks away, but then about two weeks later they had a humongous outbreak in one high school, and some other smaller outbreaks in other places as well so it it. It suggestive that asks. There were making a difference when they couldn't do. The distancing that were happening in other places like Denmark where they they went to great lengths, and even held classes, churches, or outside, or whatever to keep kids as far apart as possible and as much fresh air between them as possible I'm in Indiana and I actually have my daughter in daycare right now because I'm in a county with st low levels. I am very nervous about it, and we keep our eye on the numbers. Because that's what I see as really important gauge for whether or not, it's safe to have my kid go to a situation with six other kids. Do you feel like that background level what your community spread like is important for what's happening at your school. Absolutely, Yes, that is a huge caveat that cannot emphasize enough that the background level of community spread needs to be at A. A low enough place that you can identify outbreaks when they happened in noticed them, and that you can take measures to try and slow them down I. Think if that situation then the harm to kids. Keeping schools close vastly outweighs the potential risk of opening schools right now. Schools are closed colleges or closed, but once the university kids come back, and all the schools are open. We might see a very different background that we need to take into consideration. And Be Flexible. If school need to close again, absolutely universities are such a different situation than high schools elementary schools I mean as we talked about the risk increasing with age, so I think that's going to be a real issue in the fall as universities try to open back up. What do you think are the main takeaways from your review of all these different openings in different countries and in different schools? It's still a little unsatisfying, yeah. Is operatives data are really of still released sparse and it super frustrating, because it's such an important question. It feels like we should have better answers, but we simply don't yet. I do think the main takeaway is is you have to be flexible if to recognize that you can't go back to pretending that the viruses and there or if you do you're GONNA end up with big outbreaks and you're. GonNa have to shut everything down again. Like happened in Israel. One other interesting takeaway that I found was that when we looked at the outbreaks that had been identified, it was frequently teachers who were more affected than kids often. Often it was hard to tell because there were very very few cases where people had really carefully done the tracing that they did in that town in France, but it looked at first glances, or maybe the teachers were spreading it to each other more than to and from the kids. I think that's something that's important to keep in mind as we move toward reopening, because teachers are better able. I think than kids to do the physical distancing. I think it's it's helpful to realize that. Maybe adults are the bigger risk factor than the kids I know. A lot of teachers are super worried about going back for good reason we know as parents and teachers. The kids are generally really good at spreading germs. Happens every single winter exactly and so when the middle of pandemic where people are dying, and then somebody says well. You have to go back and stand in a classroom with even half of the normal kids. In contact with these lovely little people who you really enjoy being with, but you also see his German accelerators All, day long is definitely giving a lot of teachers. Pause for good reason, but I think one of the things that we did see emerging as a pattern was the teachers maybe should be wary of each other more than they need to be wary of their of their students I do think also that reducing class sizes and finding some sort of creative hybrid solution where kids. Kids are in school part of the time, but then doing the distance learning also part of the time. I think that's GonNa to be unfortunately the way forward for now until we get things a little bit more under control. We've talked mostly about anecdotal findings, so far are their studies in schools that are taking a look at this and going to give us some good. Good answers. That's another thing that the story mentions. There are a couple of real studies that are starting in the UK there researchers who have started projects at several schools where anybody who wants can be tested both for antibodies and active virus, and so they're hoping to get a better picture of when somebody's infected. How far it spreads in a school and in Berlin and in. In the state, German state of Bavaria also very projects have started all right. Thank you so much, Gretchen thank you Gretchen.

"How that's affected your, you know the very ability to play for these athletes as well, and it's such an uncertain time as well. With with players, opting in or or choosing. To not opt in whether it be for social justice causes or for health concerns or whatever how tough do you think it is for Some of these players right now her deciding whether or not to start their season in Bradenton, and and having not been in the the the league. Or been out of the League, but for two years now has anybody come to you and just ask for advice as far as what? They should do going forward this summer. No, no one's really shout to me. I, think people are just. You know I think that between their coaches and. And knows within those organizations that they have. Not Clan and everything is said that they I think they feel good about the ones that do wanna play this summer so good about that. It's talking. Tough on I would think I would play. All the funds station. But again it's everybody's different everybody's different You know thoughts and opinions and things going on and but you know I as a fan. I'm excited because I miss watching basketball and I missed watching basketball like everybody so hopefully it all goes well, and it's done safely and I'm sure that that they've taken all the measures in everything As a player I would I would. I would want to go play for sure big sacrifice leaving your family in and everything for I. Mean could be three months. Is Tough, but We're in such unprecedented times. That had the same time. I think it might be good for players and coaches, and just get back to doing what you do having practices and having workouts and being with your teammates. I mean to me I think there's something so therapeutic about that that we've all now missed since swale March, and if you're in the WNBA since the finals ended last, October so it's It's been such a long stretch for these. These athletes at this is what they do that I'm sure there chomping at the bit, and I think that like I said I think therapy wise I think it'd be something that would. Be So good to get a good workout in a good a good practice in that still great for your mental health at some I. Think they'd be chomping at the bit so I'm I'm excited. I hope it works out a Ni-. Applaud players who are playing in the ones who have sat out or decided to forego the season for different reasons and we're visiting with Lindsay. Whalen, the head coach of University of Minnesota, so let's dive in to your. Your team Minnesota and and what you've been doing this offseason as compared to it, you know especially last off season How much different is this? In the in the current environment where in I know, workouts would normally be voluntary. You might have a youth camp or something like that if it was a normal summer or something like that, but tell us about the main differences between a last offseason, and what you're experiencing right now. Yes, so. You know last offseason basically since the you know, Corona virus hit and we've all been in quarantine. we would have had our postseason tournament. We probably not this year. We would have been at least invited I think You know then we would have taken some time and and head postseason workouts in an April may would have been kind of downtime in June would be workouts and also camps, and so in Geelong would be recruiting would be on the road for most July so so yeah, it's a totally different you know. We just got our players back last week. They're doing voluntary workouts until the twentieth. And the week and work them out starting on the twentieth Porenta rules all of our recruiting, everything has been done virtually Lada. Zoom calls and a lot of who thought of that. That's kind of been the way of life for everybody is well as Hase time, and on the phone and texting and all that really. Come into play. Is Kinda were just in this? World. Everything is done virtually now so. Yeah. I mean totally different, complete one eighty. Offer, you ought to put it. It's it know my first off season as a coach. I was playing the WNBA last season. I guess would have been kind of a normal kind of which you go what you expect that now we're in in current virus, so it's It's been interesting. It's been an interesting start to my As far as my off seasons have gone is A. As a head, coach college. Very you're ready for anything for sure also. Exactly, nothing else can get thrown at you that you haven't met the challenge before. When you talk about July Twentieth, anticipate those times where you're able to work out the players, have you? Have you thought about how they might have to differ or those? Individual workouts small group workouts where it's going to be easily able to distance and those sorts of things well so right now Minnesota, you're able to have sport workouts with twenty five people or less. So Our team were as far as if we had our whole. Fine. do that to fourteen players on the team four coaches managers in sports that we would stay under that twenty five percent. Cap. But what we've decided to do is keep him in their room You know they're roommates as well. And so we've got to. We've got You know there's fourteen of them, so let's say they're in four different apartments. Would I've decided to do for this I? These two nine weeks of voluntary and in the first three weeks of Of where we can work them out is keep them in two separate groups. And then they'd have in those groups coincide with their roommate situation. So you know, if one group someone be, someone would come down with the symptoms or Searching out fuel well, or test positive than essentially those roommates in those workers will be shut down, but the other ones should be able to proceed in theory, right. So a lot of small group work and then you know the last the first three weeks that I'm with them. I've got them in small groups. We're GONNA. Ease back into it. We're not gonNA, use all of our four hours on the court right away just to. acclimate them back to. The basketball court is. They've been away from the court for four months now, and that's probably longest. Any of these guys have been waiting court so the lesson to throw everybody on the Court of Somebody get hurt. And then the last three weeks will do more full team stuff where we'll be you know implementing more system style fan and started work on. you know things that we want to prepare for war me back in September, so I say the first three weeks is a lot of skill development a lot of just. court Let's see how this goes a lot of Mike in. Ball handling drills. In a lot of shooting..

"Social pioneers and right off the Bat. We get to rejoice in the fact that one of Whelan's former teammates my more. More. Did something really impressive this week? The events of the last few days we've been all clamoring for some really positive things to happen in our world, and I think something that that ties in with women's basketball that is positive, certainly did when a friend of Yours Maya Moore helped Jonathan Irons get out of Prison walked free after twenty two years in prison. Just I'd be remiss if I didn't get your reaction. To what Mayer has been trying to accomplish over the last few years. Obviously, it's just a truly remarkable when you think about what she has been able to do on the court and what she when she's. To something and she's had a goal. He's been able to do help. Johnston irons be set. Free is different I. Don't know like what my does. You set your mind something. She will do anything until it happened so just yet would. Truly remarkable can happen when the right things and persistent you. Pursue Justice in in fairness in I would really like to have seen just a celebration knowledge management plan the wall. Someone who obviously has gotten very well. Just a celebration or they able to get home her her get. You are to share some great them. You're absolutely right coach, you know. We really needed something good like this just from your earliest memories of Maya coming into the League and getting. Getting to know her. What just made her stand out to you from the outset? Yeah, obviously her. Just you know extreme communication is a game and just always working to get better and great teammate when your best player on your team is your hardest worker than it's pretty easy to have a really really good team in Maya. Just was that since since day one, so she was always the hardest working player. She went a hundred percent every play. She was a part of and I think that that just set the tone for everybody on the team and coming in as a rookie she. I don't know you could just tell she this is. Her pedigree was winning. She was fit right in, and she joined our team that the year before. We really I don't WanNa. Say underachieve. We didn't make the playoffs injuries in in our roster or some. Not Quite where I. Think Cher wanted at that point so. She came into a great situation with players who had a lot to prove in me Simone Rebecca Taj and and she just fit in perfectly, and and she just You know came in, and we won four championships and. You don't like you. You know. After I guess if she came in and just Kinda, the rest was history after that, and now she's moved on at least at this point to to all of that, and it's just it just incredible to see it all come to fruition in the way it did over the last few days were visiting with Lindsay Whalen, the head coach the University of Minnesota and you know with you guys being in the twin cities area. Obviously, the whole country has been captivated I don't. Don't know what other way to say it, but it's just been such a a a tough time for all of us after the death of George Floyd. Can you give us an idea of how you're at the university has dealt with that and now a little over a month after that went down a what's the mood of your program and our things kind of moving to the next level after the initial sadness, the anger all those things. What stage is it in right now? Do you think in the twin cities? I think now you know it's How do you keep conversation going? How do you? How do we put some words into action Sir to really enact change in create change, and so you know of course right away it was. Incredibly, sad and tragic and everybody saw. On the video would happen, and so you know at that point. It was you know. I had three players on campus and I was just making sure that they were going to protest that they were safe that they felt supported and just trying to listen as much as possible but now I think our players are back. They're involuntary workouts right now. which started yesterday and You know it's something that as a program. We're GONNA. TRY TO YOU! Know weekly have a conversation on. What are some things we can do? How can we use our platform? Who Can we learn from as far as just continuing the social justice conversation, and not just let it go by the wayside, because I think that's you know that's what nobody wants. That is just to have it. Go Go back to the way it was I. Guess I mean because that isn't great for. For everybody in so just how do we continue to have these conversations? Make sure everybody's heard in in. How can we really being right here? Minneapolis? You know help be a part of change for for the positive for for everybody, but importantly most importantly our minorities, and specifically in this in this case are African. American community and what a tough situation it is! is to be in, but at the same time. How do you think that whether it be the WNBA or and I think that's trickled down a younger women's basketball players as well. They always seem like they are ready to fight for the oppressed. They are ready to help those that need their voices to be amplified. It's almost like women's basketball has been preparing for this. This moment without knowing it for the last hour for many years. What would you say that will yeah, because I think that you know as women's basketball players, I don't want to equate this. The same as what are African American community has gone through what I'll just say. Being a women's Bass. United States is not exactly the easiest thing whether you're on social media. listening to different you know people say you know I could beat her one once they one on one. You know you hear that stuff all the time so I think it's just you know you know. We kind of been in this position. Words can have to fight for everything and so like I said I. Don't want to like equate the the same but I I do know that as his vassal players. We've had to fight for a locked and we've tried to earn respect, and there's always you know somebody. Somebody. That's you know either on twitter or naysayers and things like that and so I think just having that. Yeah, the second you see something. That's not right. You're like hey, how can we? How can you help? How can we? How can we do more so I would say I'm also very proud of our our women's basketball community for always being at the forefront, stepping up in in times when I think our country is really needed for for people as role models to sip up in in. Say something several It's just the way it's been for us in the WNBA for so long. And so you kind of always get all fighting that stigma that it's women's basketball. That's less than that. It's not good enough in I, think you kind of. Hear that all the time in Hancock come up with that and and you're always fighting for that so when you know an injustice in Iraq has done to to someone or a group of people as a whole new women's basketball community. We know that's like so I think everybody just wants to as much as they can step up. And help the neck change when that does happen and they've certainly been doing that and. Of course they're having to do that within the backdrop of covid nineteen something that we've never been through before..

"And we're back dot net rocks. I'm Carl Franklin. That's Richard Campbell. And that's Kency whalen. We're talking about cross platform mobile devices in in Software with no in his her thing. I wanted to ask you Kenzi. Has there been a challenge. That was too difficult for not handle in. Your experience could take a question I haven't come across a situation where I haven't been able to work through work around. Maybe what was the the challenge that Took the most time to work around. Well I was. It was kind of just like an experiment creation from me but love you and their informs is newer. The what the carousel view carousel view. Okay I wanted to see if I can implement that with you know and so I had to do some tweaking. I'm blanking on the name of the control. Need to be but it's similar movement and you have to change it to horizontal and add some animations to it but it works. It just takes a little bit of configuration. But you get there in any kind of platform anything. That's being gesture. The CAROUSEL SORTA swipe. A fact is like how do you provide proper Behavior when you swipe like that right and that's because there is a swipe control in Uw P. Right and that's sort of the metaphor of the Carousel is you swipe swiping something. His rotating again emissions like that can be tricky especially when you're running them on different platforms. But I only use shared coats. I didn't use any specific meditations of it and it worked on all four platforms. That was pretty neat. Well do I think the biggest struggle you get into if you're thinking about it? I A windows. Uw P. APP that you're now trying to scale to phones right when you build stuff mobile first giving up to the desktop is trivial but when you build stuff out on the desktop try and get on the phones you really have to rethink the UI. Most of the time right and I think that's a difficult situation for anyone building cross platform where you start so considered. Udp first so you built for you to be and then you to the other platforms. Personally I like to keep a emulator up running constantly looking back and forth because if something doesn't work right away like know Nolan tweak along it's so easy to go into a rabbit hole when you have a huge screen space right they if you think through metaphors for mobile first they will go to to to a big screen. Anytime you'll get there what What's the story with emulators. He said you like to keep an emulator up but is it possible to have an android emulator. Ios emulator maybe an IPHONE and IPAD EMULATOR. And see what it looks like on the desktop and in the browser. Let's say at the same time. Is that even possible? Well the way I do it with all four at once. Not if you're trying to like see lives change like if you're trying to use hot reload from which you can use a new knowledge. I think is awesome. You can't have all four running. You can build a one project but the way I do it. It's Hacky but I Run INTO BP. I have the Local host browser up I run the simulator for IOS. And then I have my phone plug Damai android phone and use visor to have the ice cream as well as I can see all four running together on. It's clever that's cool. Most most mobile DEB'S I've met are surrounded by hardware. Which is my happy place outlaw. Yeah we have a wall in our office of devices and we have Velcro tape on the back of vices and we just push them on the wall and we need one of them pulled off It then velcro backups. It doesn't take up desk base. I like right and everybody knows when you do that. This is how you stop it from being a drawer of broken dreams. Carl Wall to wall of broken dreams. You have to rip each one down all right sound that that is so analogous to what you're actually doing tearing pieces of my soul office. I try. Make this this eight work. Sorry I might be a little bit better. Just give me a minute. I'm going to break up. I don't know if you've had this experience. But it's like I got to work great in the emulator actual phone day are not that same now. I've never had that issue at once. No idea what I'm talking about. It always works now school now because I also have sometimes for fun I just pull up the service duo emulator to it runs android so you can deploy we know. Apps there is while we've never talked about surface on the show before that I I want one just because it's ridiculous but you know I think it's really really cool. Yeah I think you're right It's one of those things that yeah I mean. I'm the I'm the history Guy Right. There was a product that Microsoft Developing. That was called the currier and they got it in two thousand nine. They headed in prototype stage by they were ready to go to manufacturing with it and it got killed and it was this. It was a two screen tablet folded the way it was described as a mole skin notebook but the next year the IPAD would come out but they they were right there. It may not have been good enough like it. Might you know. There's always this question of have you made it Apple Newton or an apple iphone like. I don't know which one they actually made. I never got to see one but the fact that jail got that thing ready to production before they can that is kind of brutal and now essentially when I look at the duo. It's courier like ten years later. It's courier with the screen just for emojis. I have so many emojis. I can't scroll through them anymore. Onscreen you've been playing with the on this like you can push your apps out and see what they would look. Like on a duo. Oh yeah that's cool. You can download. Yeah as this. Sdk Yeah you can just have emulated running and you can pull up any of your apps you've ever built in. It's really interesting because there are going to be some issues for a lot of people in this first comes out bet because the default is kind of just put everything in the middle and the crease in the middle. Yeah just like every dual everybody who set up there. I do monitoring you discovered in the old days of windows and every dialogue popped up straddling the screens. There are two models right. This like a sort of a hand held model and then there's more like a laptop model of the duo right. Yeah those the NEO which Reina's windows windows ten axe and then the duo which runs android okay because it is a real phone like it's an actual. Yeah so it's nice to see Microsoft getting back in the phone game while concerts. Don't call it a phone. I just made a call on it. What else is it? Don't call to come back up. Yeah today's but it is interesting in the that they have they flooded the market to. I mean they announced this thing a year in advance it was fall of Twenty Nineteen for Shipping Holiday Twenty twenty. And what do you think? The chances are being late under the circumstances. Wherein already some rumors going around. They're going to push the release. No but I think the reason they announce it so early was because for developers. This is an entirely new wave..

Because you know it's it's it's it's nice to have the comfortable conversations the ones that just go exactly right and don't challenge the way that you think about life but that's not going to produce any results and that's why you're here right.

So that's the difference between you is that I realized that I'm not GonNa have another opportunity and this is the year in the next year in eventually won't be able to race in your body won't be more something will happen. Were whatever the circumstance may be and no matter how much money you have. You won't be able to go do it. And I think that's the mentality I shifted in two years ago when I realized like it's not about money it's not about house. It's not about these things it's like. I WANNA be able to die knowing I did everything I wanted to do on to say and it might sound cheesy. Cliche to some people but it rings in my brain every single day which goes to your other question like polarizing. I would be remiss if I didn't say the things that came into my mind because I know where they come from. And the shifted comes into my heart like sending the messages in interacting with people and being a good neighbor and being a good a good son and father like. That's the stuff that comes into my heart and if I don't do anything within as Krishnan Yooglie like some point time Have THEM ANYMORE. We'll have the tribulations will have the inspiration.

"whalen" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"He is the chairman of Whalen global advisors and a bank analyst and MNA specialists covering bank the banking sector in specific banks he is also the author of the book inflated how money in debt build the American dream let's talk a little bit about debt and building the American dream so how have mortgages over time helped to build the American dream mortgages regular order are frequently cited as evidence of the American dream the ownership of the home the homestead right but the actual market place goes back to the depression when the government got involved in the mid and late nineteen thirties and created Fannie Mae which was an agency that would go out and buy loans long term loans and hold them and they funded these operations by issuing government guaranteed debt and before that you couldn't get a thirty year mortgage you couldn't get a ten year mortgage bury my my grandmother Vera actually lost her house in the early part of last century because they had a balloon in other words should small payments initially and then you'll ever see and that's what it was well there was no such thing as a thirty year fixed mortgage it was interest only payments and then you would if you were a borrower in good standing at the end of the loan period you would roll it over into a new one and start all over if you weren't making principal payments you still owed exactly what you owed when you began that's right correct in in really if you work in the mortgage business in the world of fixed income you understand that we don't really have a thirty year mortgages we have a thirty day mortgages with the option to renew which is held by the homeowner and so every month the investor has to try and figure out how many of the loans in a given pool which is how they they do bond mortgage bond issuance we're going to prepay refinance sold the house to fall whatever then it's that optionality that makes mortgages so interesting and also so treacherous it's a huge asset class it's almost twelve trillion dollars now interestingly it didn't grow for ten years after the crisis it was flat no no surprise there yeah but it's interesting very because sociologically and then in terms of you know the baby boom everything else when you study how the mortgage industry has behaved over time neediest crashed and burned destroyed all the savings and loans the nineties was kind of flat now there were French products there specifically our friends at Citi bank who decided they could do no talk no income verification mortgages for self employed right that's where subprime mortgages came from within the nineties but then we got out because the results were so horrific and they did this in the US and other countries too when I was working at the fed I was in charge of overseeing city banks foreign adventures in places like Japan and Japan they have no credit information on individuals so someone could default to just disappear but they did so you know let's listen mortgages in Japan Chris oh god they can be quite long they can be multi generational like laundry deer mortgages are not unheard of no no because the rates are very low and so what happens is with the young couples getting married to family will typically pool our resources go by my house and if the need dad to pay it off as fast as they can you know you may have heard of stated income loans the popular out on the west coast among the Asian community Korean Chinese and very typically these loans performed great even though they don't fit in the box for you know Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Ginnie Mae cut alone Sir they're typically private the the the community take that so you know if a young couple starts a family built to pay about five years all of that has to be factored into your analysis is an investor if you're buying insults right yeah like the last few years because of the bond market volatility all of the mortgage loans that were made in eighteen and nineteen to prepay because they're all in the money now the colonel refinance and I think over the next year or two you're going to see the fed gently step on the bottom of the yield curve and force that put a coupon down for both government loans and and training for the loans and we'll see three percent mortgages in this country I think so the end of the year social links between Bates who out there you can have a two percent coupon well let's let's talk about that a second because it if I remember pre crisis the average length of a mortgage was about seven years meaning people typically would move into a house their starter home have the first kid out grow the house and buy your seven they're selling and trading up to the three bedroom split and that was fairly typical it for on those numbers about what you recall and what does that look like today yeah you would be seven years or even shorter during periods of very high labor market mobility for example you also the speculative component back in the two thousands a lot of second homes which would put quite quite fast today average life through ten plus years we don't really love predictions here we kind of frown on predictions around these parts but what I'm hearing from you is that you think is part of the corona virus pandemic response the firm said is going to encourage another wave of refinancing by keeping part of the curve low not inverted but low and flat so that it becomes attractive for homeowners to refinance that I hear that right yes I think you're going to see what we call streamline refinance that don't require appraisals in other words you have an existing borrower your email all right you're lowering their costs are typically doing a rate refi rather than having them take cash out but that's okay if you lower the household expenses during proving the credit this could have a lower probability of default in an overall what you want is to get cash in the economy right now right right so yeah I I think the fed would love to see a gradual surge in response because you know what they have to buy the paper Barry their mortgage portfolios going to prepay in the next six months it's like a trillion dollars so just to replace that and keep their balance sheets stable in terms of you know monetary policy purposes look up the by a lot of paper and I think the predominance of source will be the government market you may of we've had some problems with the Fannie Freddie components last couple weeks while their regulator mark Calabria has figured out what to do but I think the good news this week as he figuring it out we're we're helping him so hopefully the whole mortgage complex is going to have a solution to both the forbearance for with the code nineteen and then the resulting to pop I think a third or more of the people who look for forbearance on their mortgages Berrier consultant with the fall coming up we continue our conversation

"Notes in these pools tobacco these securities. Because when you buy it out you have to buy it out at Park. There's a lot of money if you're talking about a couple of months. Interest Payments Given. How low rates are right? Now Berry that's manageable and in fact Regulator for free and Freddie just came out and said you guys have to advance for four months. And then we'll come and reimburse you so we're starting to get some clarity on this right but for private investors private mortgages commercial mortgages multifamily all of this stuff if it doesn't have a government guarantee then the bondholders will pay the services get reimbursed. I by the way if there's MIS payments they get their feet the bondholders. Basically have to wait. So that's that's how it will work back in the line the AAA in front and then the lower trashes and these steel sir tend to be several. Those are ones who will take the pain so Chris. Let's talk a little bit about the current state of the economy. I don't think many people would deny that. We are in a recession today. How bad is it? And how deep and long can this last four. I was on a call yesterday with a bunch of my mortgage buddies economists You know. Mark Same katter from Freddie Mac and people like cine really. Do Excellent Research on the demographics if you will have housing and then you look at banks. What were those provisions numbers from J. P. Morgan and Wells? Fargo telling us and it's telling you that the bankers expect a pretty large wave of losses in the next couple of quarters so when I look at GDP estimates of down thirty in the second quarter which is what I was hearing yesterday I kinda step back as a bank analyst and I think to myself this is going to be worse than two thousand eight To me I think we will have destroyed a lot of the small business service sector. That was so important as a source of March little employment in the United States. People look at New York Bury. The entire. Entertainment Industry has gone hospitality restaurants. All these areas that were important. Interactive brokers charges margin loan rates from his lowest point seven five percent to one point five percent our clients earn competitive interest on idol cash balances and can earn extra income by lending their fully paid shares of stock join interactive brokers clients from two hundred plus countries and territories to invest globally. Minimize your costs to maximize your returns rates. Subject to change restrictions apply learn more at IBKR.COM/ADVISORS. Ib for for that just for people generally thing needed to find a job or you know younger people who came to the city who were trying to get involved and you know some career. That was the first place they would look for a job. And the and these people have laughed. I I think it's GonNa be very interesting to see the numbers for New York. City the next couple of quarters because I suspect a lot of people went to live with mom and dad anecdotally. We're hearing a lot of people who have an op a second place to live either. Beach House or second property or if they're younger with their parents or siblings they've they've fled large parts of Brooklyn half the upper east side and upper west side or supposedly empty. I I haven't been back to the city since this started but from what I'm hearing from people who either live or lived in the city. They are sheltering outside of Manhattan. Are you implying that that might become a permanent situation because people talked about that post nine eleven but we really didn't see whoever left was very quickly replaced by a younger person? Do you think this changes the dynamics of urban density and people living in cities while I think it's going to change to business dynamics in New York for a while because in you know in two thousand eight and after nine eleven Yeah we had to hunker down but then the economy restarted. We didn't distance from physically. We didn't have to deal with all of the aspects that that implies so I think when you're still worried about vulnerable populations and you have to protect them. That means that you're GonNa try and let the economy restart to a degree but I don't think you regret these service businesses back overnight berry. They've been deep capitalized. And even if they were helping their employees with the federal money they still may not survive because they're going to be facing diminish revenue stream coming coming back. You know what what if we have to take half the tables out of the restaurants right right if people including Broadway theatre where shoulder to shoulder front and back. Are they going to Hamilton? Tickets with twenty five percent of the audience as a separate five. Were in missing. You know we just went through Passover and Easter right. These are typically times when European Slang Americans would all go to New York for a week with their families. They're not here now you know. There's there's only New Yorkers in central park right now and it's it's a different scene but I've been riding my bike around the city. I go all the way down south prairie back. Who SAYS NO TRAFFIC? How empty is the city compared to what it was like post nine eleven? It's more empty net very little tropical though it is slowly slowly starting to increase. You concede that this more people move out. I think this is going to be a profound economic shock to a lot of big cities that are used to trying to attract people come in. That's interesting so we've had this enormous monetary response from the Fed. They took rates to zero. They announced they were going to add two trillion dollars more in lawn furniture. Various high yield paper. Whatever whatever they can buy. They're going to put on the balance sheets. We've also had a at least not over the short term Two trillion dollar fiscal stimulus. How does this response compare to what we've seen from crises? In the past the Federal Response in the thirties was large. But it it didn't really do much in fact it faltered and then World War. Two kind of saved US In two thousand eight you had the financial response. Obviously to catch some of the banks But the industry more or less cleaned up its own mess and the economy healed itself. I mean the guy was remind people various effect that we still have a private bond market in this country and we have a market for different types of assets is so important because it restarted by itself the auto sector restarted by itself in two thousand nine because it was for fully secured deals but today given the hit to global auto has taken for example. And you look at sales volume estimates and everything else going forward you know. I think the whole credit of this industry has changed. Even the exemplars like the Toyotas. In the Daimler's they've taken a hit. I think you'll see consolidation by the way back to your point about Manet. Definitely 'CAUSE WE OUGHTA bakers. Yeah if we're doing. Eleven twelve million units next year. You're going to see him in a way down from the post-crisis peak of about seventeen cars in the US. Yeah it went down to eleven and it was goose by the Fed. You know we were talking before about different phases in the period after the awake crisis you had a lot of fringe products. You had autos you had you know marketplace loans all sorts of on bank lending to business individuals etc etc. All Gone put God. In fact subprime auto sector is going to go through the ringer now because again the bondholders are going to pay for the forbearance. So I think you know it's GonNa take some time to get people back in the game you're going to see spread stay kind of wide for a while on high yield securities compared to treasuries and it's just a matter of getting everybody focused but I'll tell you this berry. I think people are much better condition this time than they were in a way. I think people are coming back to the markets much faster than it did. Know eight nine when nothing was happening you remember. Do you mean what do you mean? Investors consumers are both institutional investors. Full others I mean we've got a you know M Bs Fund. We're getting ready to launch as soon as we have a little more clarity from Washington plain vanilla stuff right but still there's opportunities out there because the markets are disrupted people are looking to buy commercial real estate off distress sales. Don't listen by multifamily off distress sales though perhaps not New York because of the rent control laws But around the country. Yeah definitely. I'm thinking too small. I'm I'm looking to buy distress sheet metal off the auto sites between bring a trailer and classic cars. I've seen prices fall about ten fifteen percent over the past month and I love the idea of buying something at a discount. But that's just me so. Your First Book was inflated that looked at how debt helped build out the American dream especially houses. I was Kinda surprised by the topic of your recent book. Ford men from inspiration to enterprise. What motivated you to pivot from debt and housing to automobiles and fort. I had always been a student of Henry Ford like many Americans but particularly his role in the Great Depression and so one of the things I focused on. The book was How Henry Basically Started the banking crisis in Nineteen thirty-three before FDR took office and in March of that year. It's an extraordinary story. Because he was such a character and quay cranes you say. Did you say started the banking crisis? He initiated it yes he he said that he was going to take his money out of the. Detroit banks and win. The Governor of Michigan found out about this. He declared the bank holiday in Michigan in February of Nineteen thirty three this event then ripple through the rest of the country so by the time. Fdr takes office. Every bank in. The United States is closed and had been The Detroit banks are really important in those days was the biggest cash depositor in the country and he ran the whole company on cash out of his pocket. It was like a plantation so got into four first and foremost because I am a student that debt era and then I I had been a contributor to the Washington Times magazine Inside on the news and I had written a whole series of articles about the explorer role of which was quite a mess it was really the the beginnings of giving teeth to consumer regulation in the United States. If that happened today a lot of people at Ford have gone to jail for what happens vehicles. Oh Yeah well. This is the single vehicle rollovers with these. Yeah I recall that well ranger the you know the Bridgestone firestone tires it was quite a mess. Take take a a big big vehicle. Raise it Give it a short wheelbase and That is not a recipe for stability at high speeds. If you have to suddenly cut the wheel no. It didn't work in there. You know it was an interesting episode but what I tried to do with Ford men. Just in terms of the overall Book Berry was remind people of the rich literature around four people like John Kenneth Galbraith and many others who wrote about the family and they were such a remarkable family. It was really the first transformational business fortune in American history. More than steal more than these other types of Fortunes that have been made in the past made things they made cars but interestingly the first were built by the dodge brothers because they were the first great parts makers in the United States both of them died in nineteen twenty. One of the Spanish flu had the dodge brothers survived. The auto industry would have been dominated by them and not by General Motors and a number of other players who history would have been quite different so by the time we get to something like Ford versus Ferrari. That's thirty years later. We'll yeah Billy Henry. Henry Ford the second taken over and they they were still Also ran compared to GM. They were typically compared to the Chevrolet. That's how small Ford was But they still had a lot of staying power and as I've always said God clearly loves affords despite their many sins because somehow they avoided the fault right. Oh nine ten. They were the only. Us maker didn't need to be restructured. Well they couldn't be restructured as I as I talk about in the book. Goldman Sachs or help. The family take money out of the company and if they had been restructured than the special voting stock held by the family would have gone and they would have lost control. So there's all these little nuances and Goldman Sachs is a very important part of the Ford Story. It was their design of the Ford Foundation. When the Ford family gave most of the Economics Company to that entity and retain most of the vote in this ESA metrical share transaction at Sidney. One Bird created along with the lawyers for for edsel Ford That saved the.

"Christopher whalen he is the chairman will and global advisors and has a long and deep background in the financial sector working at such firms as bear stearns and as a researcher for the Federal Reserve. Chris waylon welcome to Bloomberg. Hey Barry what a pleasure. So let's start out with a little bit of your background know you as a bank. Analyst and emanate specialist. But let's go back to when you were at bear stearns. What were you doing at bear? And how is that related to your work at the Federal Reserve? Well I I grew up in Washington my parents Joan and Richard Waylon were some of the most interesting Republicans operating in town and it was democratic town in those days. Bury the Democrats still ran everything But that's how I got to know Fed Chairman Paul Volcker Arthur Burns Alan Greenspan. They all came the moms parties in fact. If you didn't get an invitation to Jones Christmas party there was something seriously wrong with you so I grew up in this. Very political household. Went to college went to Villanova and then when I got out I worked for Jack. Kemp for a couple years on Capitol Hill. Really learn the right to brilliant editors used to just pound us because we had to report on different committees and I eventually ended up moving to New York and I was a management trainee at the Fed in New York. I worked in a bank supervision. I for Jerry Manhattan and Bill Rutledge. And then I went across the street and worked in foreign exchange for Gretchen. Green and Terry. Jackie wanted a great Fed Officers of his AG. He was responsible for foreign. So all the other central banks would talk to Terry In fact he was probably the only person in the building they would talk to. So that's kind of where I got my start and then I went to bear in London. Fixed Income Trading and sales Worked with David Seccombe and Joey Kalpa and a whole bunch of people who are now with our w press bridge special situation Fixed Income shop here in New York. So that's really where I started in credit and I had learned about banks. Obviously I went to night school for Accounting and it was very funny in those days because New York was empty Mary in the eighties. There was no one here. You know especially if you're for sure. Oh God were used to go to the raccoon launch and there would be bikers parked down the street two blocks of city hall middle of the night. And it'd be knowing there. No one that that's amazing. That's amazing. You mentioned Jones parties. I recall a party of yours. I believe it was election night in two thousand eight and that was the only time in my life I got to meet. Paul Volcker was sitting in your kitchen telling jokes about the Bush administration with toll. Paul the fact that I got pulled laugh is one of the highlights of of that decade. For me yeah he he. He was a great great guy and he did have quite a sense of humor He was member Lotus Club. So I did get to see a couple of times there Before his passing but he was just a a lovely man there were times. We disagreed on things but I always came around the his point of view because he he was such a real guy and he was grounded in in reality. He reminds me a lot of what my dad said to me. Years ago we said Christie task of this generation is to pass the bubble onto the next generation intact. And that's what Paul Volcker did. I asked him once about the bank's Paul. Why did you let this in two thousand seventeen? Which is where that picture I put on. Twitter came from and We had gone to lunch and this little cafeteria right there in Rockefeller Center where he used to go and get his lunch every day. It was very hot. It's very nice And we're sitting there and look. What did you let the banks off-balance-sheet finance all of these bad things happen? Subsequently right and he said well they were broke. What else was I going to do? So you know he was just such a sweet and I think very committed public servant and I always respected that about him but he was a family friend which is why I never asked him for anything. What about some of the other Fed Chairman that you had relationships. With what can you tell us about Arthur Burns or Alan Greenspan or anybody else on the FOMC that that stands out in your mind. Arthur Burns was very sweet. The self effacing man Who My dad got to know? Because pop was a speech writer Richard Nixon and he left The Nixon campaign justice. Nixon was going to White House. So you know because of my father's press credentials and connections and everything else and also because of the fact. He was a Republican again in a democratic dominated town He quickly got to know. People like Brunson Greenspan and became kind of their political counselor in a sense because the decision by both men to get into the Fed and get deeply involved and and national economic policy was very momentous one because it meant a lot of compromises for both You know I don't remember. Burns says well because I was so young But Greenspan was you know always A long Family friend he had gotten no my pop. Pop was working with Ronald Reagan. And when you know during the seventy six Cycle when Ford eventually got the nomination re Greenspan was trying to figure out when he was going to go to the Council of Economic Advisers and then ended up at the Fed of course and that was also a very political decision berry. Because you know the the Fed is the most political entity in Washington by far the very very stu political analyst not a great economist but Really really sharp judge politics so you know it was a fascinating thing for a a young man to have access to. I would sit on the stairs in our house in For some their Maryland a off Massachusetts Avenue. Just listen to these parties And meet the people sometimes because we were all very little But as we grew up these people were part of our lives and we were kind of Washington insiders. That's what Washington was like in the eighties and the nineties. You could actually get stuff done. People would talk to one another. They would have dinner. You know a little today. Yeah I I think we have to restore civility and thereby communication in our. That would go life. That would go along way. I have to follow up with one question. You mentioned fed chairman making compromises. Were you talking philosophically or politically or across the board. It's across the board cannot survive as fed chairman without the at least the acquiescence of the White House and you know trump Berates Powell and says things in public but Judy Shelton said I think so wonderfully at least he does it in public What Richard Nixon did? Arthur Burns was criminal His anti-semitism his just nastiness Was was awful and you know Reagan on the other hand was very affable Mike Dad got reappointed and it was a little cabal between him and Pawlak Salt. The Great Senator One weekend the lack salts. And the Reagan's were camp. David and my dad gave Paul the polack salt. The phone number and said Have Reagan. Call Fulcher and it happened. And then my dad said to me later. I put this inflated. This is how stuff gets done in Washington. Still phone call from gathering can't David and barrel sprinkle was being pushed very very hard by Don Regan? The former chairman of Merrill Lynch and Dad One so you know kudos Pawlak Salt..

Let's check in on some tech news journal reporter adam. Jonoski has a story about how hackers are often willing to negotiate after taking hold of data or servers servers ransomware attack more than doubled in the first quarter of two thousand nineteen from a year earlier and the average ransom demand increased to about two hundred and twenty only five thousand dollars in the first quarter of two thousand nineteen. That's up from one hundred and sixteen thousand dollars a year earlier. Also hackers accept payment only in bitcoin or other crypto currencies and that's because it's difficult to trace but hackers often look for any level of payments adam jonoski story points out an the hackers accept a significantly lower payment about eighty percent of the time for certain strains of ransomware for example in one recent incident the hacker set ransom at forty bitcoin or about four hundred sixteen thousand dollars but agreed to seventeen bitcoin or one hundred seventy seven thousand dollars now law enforcement authorities don't punish organizations that pay a ransom but they advised against doing so because they say there's no guarantee that hackers will unlock affected data and paying up emboldens the hackers to go after a new target and a cyber insurer that brokers ransomware demands tells attackers that hacked company can restore computers and data from backups and doesn't need the decryption key from hackers but the companies usually willing to pay for it at a discount because it would speed up the recovery coverage process better faster greener super micro resource-saving server and storage systems with intel zeon scalable processors reduce the cost and environmental impact of your enterprise infrastructure learn more at super micro dot com.

You should steer clear of discussing politics and the same might be true for the workplace will google is set new guidelines advising implies not to discuss politics or anything else for that matter not related to work and wall street journal reporter. Sara nadelmann is here with some details so sara this might seem my common sense to some the idea of keeping the conversation to work matters but as you point out in your journal story google has been known for a fairly freewheeling internal culture culture right so this is a pretty big about face for the company as long prided itself on having an open debate type of culture very much like a college campus and <hes> employees have formed groups dedicated to a wide range of topics animals rights to women's issues to politics. You name aimed at some point. It's grown to <hes> an issue where people are spending too much time. Debating matters unrelated to their jobs through these internal internal groups there. <hes> discussions happened on line through a chat software program. That's internal and so has gotten out of hand and yeah. The google has this internal message board award system where employees can air their views. The company wants to patrol those a little better exactly up until now they've had employees voluntarily moderating these these message boards to make sure things don't get out of control <hes> and it's <hes> in the past year google said that it's <hes> gotten to a point where they actually need employees to monitor these chatrooms full-time so they're going to have employs dedicated specifically moderating these forums to make sure our <hes> things don't get out of hand in addition getting people back to work is part of this reason an effort to close doors where confidential company information might recount that is another part of it so in the guidelines <hes> they list of <hes> have a bulging list of several things that they want the employees to pay attention to string guidelines on how they should behave during those internal communications and one of those bullets toward the end is indeed reminding people that confidential company information discussed on these farms should remain confidential that has not been happening lately that has really a next on the the senior executives at the company because they're happened. These leaks it'd to be clear. Google isn't banning political conversations altogether but once managers to monitor things if they become disruptive or if there's any sort of informational threat to the company exactly and that's why they're having employees you know do this full-time to make sure those conversations are civill and to make sure that confident formation he's not leaked going forward and so it is a enough that they are going to be hiring full of full time team dedicated to doing just that you know you mentioned google being like a college campus before based on your story seems like google is turning a corner in a maturing process moving from something like a college campus to requiring requiring more responsibility on the part of the employs seems like this is a sea change in motion.
