It's the latest episode in an epidemic of violence. The city is having trouble putting a stop to some of the NYPD is chief critics are now calling for more police. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams is among those saying it may have been a mistake to completely eliminate the department's anti crime unit, which was tasked with getting illegal guns off the street. Very interesting to hear him say that. Thank you, Steve Burns. We are a month and 1/2 away now from when school's usually open for the fall. But with the virus still around, cities and towns have huge decisions to make you may have heard yesterday that Los Angeles and San Diego decided not to open in the fall.

Reopens in a region if you're in face for And the infection rate is 5% or lower. If the infection rate goes over 9%. On a seven day average. That means the virus is moving rapidly. And it is not intelligent to open. So an infection rate of 5% is the standard to reopen in New York. Right now, New York state is that just a little over one Long Island at 1.5 in New Jersey Governor Murphy says the plan is to reopen. Like Cuomo, he says the numbers will tell the story. Start numbers.

"Cases go with you Wherever you go. The rising crime wave in New York City talked about it all the time Shootings up 200% over last year, all sorts of violence and mayhem being unleashed. Now the mayor, the idiot builder, Blasio says people's pent up frustration of being cooped up inside because of the virus, he says. That's the reason for skyrocketing crime. He says the $1 billion cut in the police budget that's got nothing to do with it. Dismantling the anti crime task force, the plainclothes unit that's got nothing to do with it either. And, of course, neither does his release of over 2000 hardened criminals from Rikers Island. And now another genius. New York congresswoman Having some good days has put her two cents in. She agrees. The massive police budget cuts are not related to the crime wave because he wants the police defunded, she says, rising crimes caused by people who are scared to pay their rent. They go out, they shoplift a loaf of bread to feed their hungry kids. Well, how does that account for the 200% increase in shootings? Meanwhile, on the other coast, California Democrats are about to release 8000 criminals from jails and prisons to stop the virus from spreading, supposedly Liberal Democrats. They defund the police the same time they released criminals from jail. I mean, what could possibly go wrong?.

"new york city" Discussed on Here's The Thing

"Subway it from one to five in the morning they both had to sell it. It was particularly controversial because it meant getting the homeless out of the subway. And that's a very politically charged issue. And they stuck together on that sharing the responsibilities between the city's public health system and the larger voluntary system that the state regulates they understand the importance of working together particularly as we start to reopen the economy. And bring people back. We have to sell confidence. That will not happen if we're a house. Divided city and state competing with each other. New York historically has been resilient because we were pragmatic during occupy Wall Street the WASHINGTON AFL CIO. Trumka tried to get the unions to March with occupy Wall Street to March down Broadway in protest and create a giant outpouring organized. Labor leaders refused to do it. They said we need the financial industry in New York. We need them to come back. And they rose above the ideological to come down on the side of New York. And that's the moral the lesson that we have to take forward. We've got to stick together. I I was thinking as you were torquing Kathy in the seventies To help the city get out of its financial crisis. The rudin family and members of the real estate community started prepaying taxes because they knew that the city needed the receipts immediately. You know right now. The big companies Bloomberg announced this some. The banks announced at Mastercard. They're paying their vendors within one or two days as soon as they can for the very Rayson just to keep the money in the system and to keep businesses going. Yeah which makes sense. Also just say on to take the regional perspective. Kathy will be shocked. Governor Cuomo has also been instrumental in pulling together the neighboring states and maybe laying the groundwork for creating more of an ongoing coordination between these states on investment policies and other things because if all the things come to pass where some people start to say. Let's let's leave accounts payable outside Manhattan? We'd like is for them to stay in the Metropolitan Region for for the businesses to see themselves as regionally based distributing their their workforce across the region as needs and costs. Make the most sense and that's beneficial for all of us and. I think that we're I think it's been tremendous leadership on the part of the governor's up and down the northeast working together. One question I had for you Kathy. You spoke out forcefully against the city's workers bill of rights. Granting sick leave and hazard pay for essential workers which of course put you at odds with Cory Johnson? And so for people like that. Why was that the case well? I testified yesterday that it's not a matter of lack of compassion. We all share that but the burden of some of these Of some these requirements and this is focused on essential industries. Well essential industries. Is Everything from the Securities Industry Wall Street to the healthcare workers to the grocery store workers etc. And there's a lot of difference in those and at the federal level. We have done a lot to get money to workers. With the enriched unemployment. There are issues of resources. Do we have the resources? The businesses that they're asking to pay essential workers and the hospitals by the way they are all stretched very thin financially. So it's not that you can just pass a law like you could do in the last twelve years when we had prosperity. These businesses have profit margins of five percent or less and a lot of those are gone Consumer spending year-over-year is down thirty seven percent in New York City since a year ago so that money has disappeared from our economy. There's a tendency to think. Well we can make a law and fix this along will not fix this. We have compassion for these workers. We all want to reward them. But you're not gonNA do that with a law. You have to figure out another way to do that. And in the case of the nineteen seventies crisis the unions. The workers sacrificed. They sacrificed their salary. Increases the public service workers. We can count on that again. That's what was my next question which was do you think that New York unions which are pretty tough. Unions can be relied upon to sacrifice again. I absolutely do I absolutely do. I think they care about New York. They've got a huge stake in the future of the city. Just as I think everybody has to sacrifice people have to see that business is sacrificing. People have to see funds that are being raised by the one percent to support the undocumented workers who don't qualify for the trump unemployment insurance. That's the kind of thing that's going on. In New York. Top End restaurants that are delivering meals to poor communities and to healthcare workers. I absolutely believe that everyone is going to make a sacrifice for the city because we all love. We've got to get that back. The question is timing and how much suffering is between now and then if I if I can agree with that in one of the things that we do have as an advantage in New York. Frankly is that we went through these tough times over the last twenty years between nine eleven. Two Thousand and eight Sandy. The city came together after each of those community started looking out for each other started to realize how how important those connections were 'cause I talked to Mike counterparts around the country and I don't think other cities and Metro regions. Have that kind of resiliency. That New York does because they haven't been tested over the last generation the way we have. I'm trying to focus myself on what we can control. What will we have the power to change in one thing? We're very concerned about his Broadway. Broadway is not a big cylinder in the city's converts one of them and I've been on line and talking to people a lot of what we're going to tell her. I suggest you talk to Henry Timms who's president of Lincoln Center? That's a very good point todd from the roundabout theater which I on the board of not to end on a downer. Put The arts and culture even more so than restaurants I. It's really hard to see what it's GonNa take for Lincoln Center and Broadway to come back. That's going to be really hard. Some of the big ones which have listened the philharmonic that I'm on the board of had reserves that they were piling up to renovation of David Geffen Hall and I mean I think they're going to be okay in terms of they're going to survive it just that they're gonNA have to dip into that money. That was capital approved money as operating cash. And we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA go back several stages on the game board in terms of raising money. Listen I'm very grateful. Not only for you doing the podcast. But for the work that you do on behalf of the people of the city of New York thank you so much thank you. It's always a pleasure. Stay safe and I'M GONNA to be sending you my proposal for the funding for therapy for substitute out of all at it in the fifth plan. Were you also have an important role as champion for the city that everybody would enjoy hearing from annual? Thank you Kathy. Wild and Tom.

"Yes we are overwhelmed. There are patient scenarios in this hospital that we never had patients before we've transformed lobbies into bed wards. We've transformed our cardiac units that used to be used for outpatients into inpatient units are children's hospital. Large Children's hospital has half adults in it. Now I could go through this over and over again. Every nickel corner of our hospitals are full of patients including several tents that are up outside of our hospitals. So it's still very stressful. I see so Dr Farber. There three goals that we'd like to accomplish this hour. One is to begin to try to learn. Why New York was is the epicenter at least for the time being of covert one thousand nine pandemic in the United States How New York City in particular has been coping and then the lessons at the city has for other places Washington DC Philadelphia Houston potential. New Hotspots. Here so so to that first question what would be your answer for for. At least the beginning of our understanding of why New York has been hit so hard. Well I think there's lots of reasons and some that we don't know but one of the obvious reasons is that it's a very density we've had a lot of people coming in here from all parts of the world. I mean. This is the only city that I'm aware of in the United States that used to have direct flights from Wuhan three times a week We also have a lot of flights from Europe and there were multiple introductions more likely than not into New York of this virus So that was one thing second. Is I think clearly. In retrospect that month of not having testing was devastating time when the virus is spreading throughout the city and other parts of the country. But here clearly more so And that caused a critical mass of infected people to develop and then spread them around Thirdly we were late in getting people to do this social distancing I think You know it was. It was very difficult once..

"From NPR and Wvu. Are Boston Meghna Chakrabarti? And this is on point. The streets of New York City are virtually empty. The city that never sleeps is silent except for the sound of sirens and the applause singing and hot banging at seven o'clock each night for healthcare workers and first responders. New York is the epicenter of this country's Kobe. Nineteen epidemic so this hour point. Why New York is that epicenter? What life is like there now? And what lessons. The city has for other American metropolises. And we will start today in Manhattan on the Lower East side with Anna Silman. She senior writer at New York magazine. And she's been writing a series called a diary of a hospital and we have a link to her stories and on point radio DOT ORG and welcome to the program China. Hi so first of all How are you doing and how much life change for you in New York? I am doing okay. I feel very lucky to be you know in a home that I feel comfortable with home. I feel comfortable in with with my partner. My cat You know I feel very privileged but obviously it's been it's been a huge adjustment and It's I live normally in a very bustling very lively neighborhood and it's really strange to hear but of silence outside except for this constant noise a siren. That's the only thing you hear. Now I mean it's it's actually kind of hard to imagine New York being quiet like that. It must be like shocking. Change certainly Erie. I think the best way to describe it. Okay well you have been working on. A series called diary of a hospital. And this is the dispatches that medical staff from Mount Sinai in Brooklyn or sending you yet so I've I've been interviewing Different people on staff. So we'll have thirty forty minute phone call and they've been telling me about their days and we've done six just touches so far we've spoken that she's medical officer the head nurse the head of the ICU. And we're hoping to continue the project throughout The code crisis so over the militia's talk a little bit about The most recent dispatch right. It was the head from the from Dr Adam Brenner. Who's the head of the ICU. There can you tell us a little bit about what he's seeing because he's obviously having to care for the most. Ill patients there now. Yeah I mean speaking to to. Dr Renner was really heartbreaking You know they're really doing everything they can. He's working fourteen fifty an hour days And he was just saying that the prognosis for the the very sickest patients that critically ill patients on ventilators is really not good. And do you know? Of course. You're seeing older patients. But you're also seeing a lot of patients in their fifties and sixties for kind of lingering on the ventilators And and not getting better and I think you know he was feeling really disheartened by One Line he had. That really stuck with me is he said and other diseases we still have hope and this has really taken away all of our hope and that was really tough to hear. Did you say why is it? Just because of the the the intensity of what he's seeing right now there's just no You know for the patients who do have the worst The worst outcome there. There's not really anything they can do except supportive care which means putting him on the ventilator but there is no cure they just have to I I understand. It hoped that you know while they're on ventilators. The virus kind of Work their way out of their system. And and that's not something that they're seeing very often unfortunately he also talked to you about how what impact this is having on him. The told you that he's not sure what going back to normal for him will look like when we're on the other side of all of this. Yeah you know. You said that it's very hard to go back to work after this. I mean this is. He acted something that I think a lot of the people. I've spoken to have said which is that. This is very traumatizing Doctor you're used to saving lives and I used to feeling like you have a good chance of saving every patient and I don't think that is The pervasive feeling right now and that's very very hard. No can you tell me? What impact do you think this is? This is having or has had on on New Yorkers because I mean this this is one of the great cities of the world and it's it's also uniquely American all at the same time. Just what impact has this had on New York? I mean it feels like such a Cliche to say but New Yorkers are so resilient. I've lived in New York for eight years and in that time I've lived through you know I lived through hurricane. Sandy and I saw a lot of the businesses around me lifter it as well. And you know New Yorkers. I feel confident that we'll bounce back but that being said it's very very difficult I live in the lower east side which is really sort of bustling neighborhood. Said full of bars restaurants tons of street life and that that isn't there and All of these small businesses have been forced to shut down many of them You know it's not not certain how long they'll be shut down for and I think there's real concern about You know whether people are going to be able to keep their business. Keep their livelihood Well Anna Silman is a senior writer at New York magazine. She usually rights for the cut covering women's fashion and health. Since this epidemic took hold though in New York she has been writing a series called diary of a hospital and we have a link to Oliver reporting at on. Point Radio. Dot Org Anna. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for having me. Well yesterday. Governor Andrew Cuomo in his daily briefing gave the latest numbers for the daily death toll in New York state as a whole but he also looked for the silver lining in some of those numbers. You WanNa talk about a cold winter with the earth becomes barren. This has been a cold period from societal point of view. And we've closed down in a way we've never closed down but we will come back to life and we will have a rebirth and that's what spring is all about and the rebirth is Primarily about our people and about our spirit. That's Governor Andrew. Cuomo speaking yesterday in his daily briefing. Well joining us. Now is Dr Bruce Farber. He's chief of infectious diseases for the north well health hospital system. It's New York State's largest healthcare provider with twenty three hospitals and close to eight hundred outpatient facilities. Dr Farber Welcome to the program. Thanks thanks for having me maintenance so I if I may ask I think. Over the past couple of days we've at least seen a plateau in the number of new hospitalizations in New York City Is is the city itself turning it some kind of corner we hope so? I think you're right we have seen a plateau. Unfortunately we continue to see. Large numbers of patients still critically ill on ventilators. Because there's a lag time Hopefully they will decrease over the next week. The critical time in.

"So. New York is getting ready for a week. That feels like it could be really awful. There's been a bunch of writing over the weekend. Basically making the point that China was the first warning and Italy was the second warning now. New York City. Is this kind of final warning to the rest of the United States? To sort of get ready. I'm wondering looking back on the story of the last month. What do you see as lessons learned that other cities and states who aren't as badly affected now should be taking? I think the major lesson is that we needed to be much more ready to swallow a stay at home order or a pause or whatever you want to want to call it and we needed to make it a lot more clear to people what the stakes were and how important it is to basically just stay at home I think that it's funny because The elected officials are very worried about the impact on the economy. But in the end by drawing out the decision they only hurt the economy even more because it's drawing out basically the pandemic. If we had gone to all of these measures a week earlier that would have made a huge difference if we had also been a lot stronger in the messaging that would have also made a huge difference as well when Liz looks out her window. She says it seems like new. York still hasn't figured out how to warn its residents to stay indoors. It worries her for instance I went in. I took a walk at the Central Park Reservoir I think it was maybe thirsty Thursday evening and it was busy not just the reservoir itself but just even the outer area around the park. There are a lot of people jogging running. And it's really questionable whether you're ever really six feet apart from anybody. 'cause everybody's all in motion you know there are people kind of cluster together. At certain points. Playgrounds are still open and the playgrounds have been. I mean the mayor did take off the basketball. Hoop set eighty playgrounds. You know. The mayor is still saying that you know. Their New Yorkers are still overwhelmingly. Have Been Cooperative. You know and no big the stay at home order. But it's it's not what we're seeing. It sounds like that upsets you. It is upsetting because I think that there is a true argument to be made as to whether the order has been strong enough. And I think there's been a lot of mixed messaging when it comes to this concept of what a stay at home. The Governor Governor Cuomo has called it pause. But what does it really mean? And what should it really mean and if it's coming from let's say scientists like what does that mean and I think hearing from scientists. It's you get a very different notion of what it should mean versus when you're hearing it from a politician who when you hear it from a scientist what do they say. A scientists will say that the best thing that can slow even halt the spread of the virus. If everybody stayed home everybody just stay home like as much as humanly possible. I mean if you need to go out the reason should be. You're getting groceries. Or they're some kind of emergency in your family or a friend and you need to help them right now but otherwise. Just stay at home and that's not really the message that elective officials have been willing to say some of the other places. Would I think say well? We're not a city like New York. We don't have big city problems. We don't have people living right on top of each other. Do you think that's a valid point? I mean the density definitely hurts the city but I think that you can't underestimate the spread of disease and you can't under estimate all the different vectors that could wind up. You know in a certain place like Louisiana there. There are pockets of this. Which are surprising. Like for instance new row show was very surprising in many ways to write. Why was the initial hotspot identified in a suburban community? I think there are all these ways that surprise people about the way Americans Organiz whether through religious activities or cultural kind of traditions. The way in which we come together and I think that they're different ways in which that happens. All across large cities small towns. That could make this virus. A real problem everywhere. Liz Kim thank you so much for joining me. Thank you so much for having me. Liz Kim is a senior editor for Gotha missed and WNYC. A few hours after we spoke. Liz learned that Mount Sinai Hospital had just started working to build a sixty eight bed field hospital in Central Park. It's just steps away from where she went for that walk last week. And that's the show. What next is produced by Daniel Hewitt Mary Wilson Mara Silvers and Jason Leone? And if you have got something to say about this quarantine about maybe job loss. You've suffered in the wake of it whatever's on your mind. Leave us a message. Our number is two zero. Two eight eight eight two five eight eight. Thanks for listening. I'm Mary Harris. I'll.

"Eight. You can also find me on twitter. I'm at Mary's desk all right onto the show. I've been trying to remember what my block used to sound like. I live in Brooklyn. I've been pretty much inside for a couple of weeks now and we'll have been here. My streets changed the mosque. Two doors down. It doesn't wake me up with the call to prayer anymore. The bus still goes by but I never seem to hear it. This eerie quiet in my corner of the city. Sometimes I worry it's misleading. It's easy to fill the silence with whatever you think is true. The birds seem louder but so did the sirens. What are your sources telling you about what is about to happen this week. The last few days have increasingly farming. I called up Liz Kim who reports for Gotham missed and WNYC to get the news from the other side of the city. She's not hearing sirens. So much in Manhattan. She's alarmed anyway. There are now corona virus patients in New York City that have been on a ventilator for a month thirty days. Yeah we don't know how many but we know that what that means is if you have patients that have been on a ventilator that long it doesn't look good for them basically the longer you're on a ventilator the greater the risk that you're not going to.

"Done it for mortgages. He needs to place a freeze on all rent payments Shitload of people. Like you and me probably certainly me probably you. We don't own property in New York City. We rent property in New York City. We live in rented space. He needs to put a freeze on all rent payments for at least the next ninety days probably longer but he certainly needs to do it. A S A P. I like Governor Cuomo and I've been as I said he's done a great job. He has been providing some leadership when we have been desperate for some not just us as New Yorkers but the whole country. He's been setting example for other governors and other leaders. He needs to put a freeze on rent payments. It's important and I don't know what the Hell I don't know why he hasn't done it yet. He's placed a moratorium on evictions and he's placed a freeze on mortgages but so far he's been silent on the issue of rent now at first someone suggested and I thought it was. I thought made sense. Perhaps we thought he was trying to roll out these provisions incrementally and would place the freeze on rents by at least the end of last week. He didn't he didn't and I was confused and disappointed about it. There was actually a point once towards the end of the week. I think was Friday actually towards the end of his press conference. When I was sure was going to happen I could feel it. I could feel it coming on. And then it didn't look he said. I know this is hard on everyone. A lot of these actions I've taken are making it hard on. Everyone and I wanNA help as many New Yorkers as I possibly can wow. I have no governor Cuomo impression. I want to help as many New York as I can and I thought Oh here comes in and he just went on to talk about placing a moratorium on evasions which we already knew about. Come on come on. He needs to put a freeze on rent. Payments People are not working. They are not making money. No one can pay their rent. He needs to put a freeze on. 'em Now it's funny too. Because in that same press conference he was actually asked why he had not yet put a shelter in place order in effect and his response. He went on a little diatribe. About how words matter he said to this report that you know words matter the way you say things matters it affects people blah blah blah. I agree governor. I agree words do matter. That's why you need to put a freeze on rent payments. You know. A lot of people have been speculating. That well you know. He put a freeze on mortgages and the people who have mortgages those of the people who own the buildings so if they don't have to pay mortgages clearly their tenants won't have to pay rents any did put a moratorium on victims just in case so it's basically the same thing. No that's not the same thing. That's not good enough as governor. Cuomo said words matter. You GotTa be specific. You have to say it so there's no wiggle room so there's no confused and he needs to put a freeze on rent payments words matter that matters that matters facts matter each. Am I wrong about this? No Okay now. Let's talk about trump for just the second now. Not a day goes by when he doesn't do or say something completely stupid completely outrageous and or off the wall. This Week. It was a real doozy. Now I'm sure some of you at some point heard him say something over the course of the week that at face value probably seemed more appalling but for me this is what really got me. I've always known this is a this is a real. This is a pandemic. I've felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic that was trump. Give me listen again. I've always known this is a this is a real. This is a pandemic. I felt. It was a pandemic long before it was called dependency. Let me just point out. He doesn't know what a pandemic is. If you ask them to define pandemic he would probably say you're loser. That's a nasty question. I don't WanNa tell you now. That was Donald Trump Donald trump. Who has been playing down the corona virus from the very beginning. That was him saying. Look this is a pandemic I called. It depends before anyone else. What who? Here's okay let's have some fun here. Let's let's go back in time for a moment shall we? Here's what Donald Trump had to say about this corona virus back in January all the way back in January. We have a totally under control. It's one person coming in from China and we have it under control. It's going to be just fine. That was in January. Okay jump ahead with me. Here's what he had to say in February so just last month about the same corona virus. We pretty much shut it down coming. In from China in April supposedly it dies with hotter weather. Looks like by April. You know in theory when it gets a little warmer it. Miraculously goes very close to a vaccine. We're going down not going very substantially down. We have done an incredible job. We're going to continue to disappear one day. It's like a miracle it will disappear. That was in February..

I'm actually here in the radio. Free Brooklyn Studio keeping you company every Monday night from ten til midnight. Come HELL OR HIGH WATER. So our studios are more or less closed. I did not break in though. Don't worry I'm not. This is not some rogue. Show it just so happens that I live very close to the studio Buckley. I'm within walking distance. Luckily I have no symptoms. I am not sick. I don't feel a sniffle as of yet and I have no guests so I'm allowed to be here and I needed to be here because this is GonNa fucking kill me. I mean if the if the corona virus doesn't get me and kill me then CEO. Bath hyper then. Let me tell you folks the isolation the mundane repetitive life. We are starting to live. We have no choice but to live the isolation the boredom. The you know tight quarters. It's GonNa kill me. I needed to be here. I WANNA black folks but for the last three plus years averaged get this between fifteen and sixteen thousand steps a day. Yeah it's not that impressive. Most New Yorkers walk a lot we do walk a lot here in this city but having said that the gyms are closed. We're not supposed to go anywhere I've taken about three point three thousand steps today and that's the most taken in the past three days so I'm going crazy. I'm sure you're going crazy. This is a miserable experience and I'm not even talking about the shelter in place. I'm talking about all of it. This is all horrible and I'm not really I mean it's like I understand that complaining about it doesn't do any good for anybody but I just think that sometimes like right now. I think there's something to commiserating together now. I don't I don't think it's a good idea to of course you know dwell on the bad things but there's nothing wrong with venting and recognizing that this fucking sucks more than fucking sucks. It's a scary time. It's a sad time because if you are quarantining or self isolating or all that Shit with you know your significant other. Good for you if you're if you're doing all that with your family good for you but most of us here in. New York City are miserable. Most of us here in New York City are not married. I think I don't know most of the people I know aren't married so we're quarantining and have you ever felt more alone than quarantining alone. I don't think so it's tough. This whole thing is tough. I it stuff for everybody and so I've been thinking about this a lot and I think that part of what makes this whole experience of so kind of way heavy on your shoulders more so than most disasters. Most call Lambada's events that we've had to respond to is the simple fact that we don't know how long this is GonNa last. We don't know how we don't know you can't really plan for it. Because are we going to be held in quarantine for the next two weeks or for the next nine months and when I read headlines Reading headlines that suggest and I have seen these and I don't know if they're spits trying to be witty or clever or informative or both or none of the above. Maybe it's just trying to convey information but when I read headlines that say things like a quote some experts estimating we may need to be in quarantine for a year when you read stuff like that. It is just devastating and it is daunting and it is wears on you. Just the idea. That's an overwhelming sense of dread. When something like nine eleven happens nine eleven the thing about an event like nine eleven? It is horrible. It is devastating. It is something that we would never wish on our worst enemy but the difference is on September twelve. We were on our way to recovery. We knew that something horrible had happened. Something devastating and scary and tragic and just unbelievable. It happened to our country but the second we woke up that next day we all came together and started working towards recovery. Recovery started on September twelfth. This we don't know I don't know we were also helpless people you know we. It seems like every day the news gets worse and worse and it's there are no projected lights at the end of the tunnel and it's it's just unlike anything we've ever experienced before. I imagine it certainly unlike anything other experienced before I mean even we you know we talk on the show every now and then about losing someone losing a parent losing a loved one losing a close friend that I truly believe is the worst thing that could ever happen to you but again as horrible and has lost his empty and kind of broken as you feel the next day day one of life without that person day one of life without them is also day one of recovery. You know I'm a believer that you never fully heal from the loss of a person but you adjust you know what I'm saying. So that's what makes this so different and I think for me personally. That's what makes this so hard. Hard to rep your head around really. That's how I feel about it. I also really really miss my family. It makes me. I see my three little baby nephews on the social media. I missed the crap out of them. I wish I could be there with them for them. They are unlocked down as well. They're either oblivious or scared or maybe they love not going to school. I don't know I wish I knew. I wish I was there to know. Yeah Yeah so however. You're feeling whether you're angry whether you're scared whether you're sad. All of the above probably tonight. Hopefully we can not dwell on it but maybe I think there's something to commiserating together and I hope we will. That's my plan so I started my new job. I'm officially A. I don't even know if I should say 'cause I've never actually said the name of the company but anyway I started my new job. It's going fine. We all have to work from home. So that's kind of a weird way to start but at least I have a job. I'm not about to complain. Most of my friends you the job that I had to quit in order to take this noon position. I had to email my boss and be like. I'm so sorry I'm GonNa have to cancel these next these scheduled bookings and I listed out like twenty events will. Most of those events have now been canceled. And I can't help but worry for my friends who live who get by by living in the GIG economy by being artists by being bartenders on the side by being teachers on the side. They have no income right now. Sure they can all flock to the unemployment website but it keeps crashing because everyone's talking to the unemployment website and how long is that really going to sustain them and I worry about people in you know when we do get through this? Who's to say everything's just GonNa pick right up pick right up where we left off? A restaurant is going to be able to reopen. I mean I can't help but wonder but I don't want to be a complete Debbie Downer. Having said that let's talk about what's making news tonight. We're only going to really talk about one thing. Can you guess what it would be? Yep Tom Brady is leaving the New England patriots. That's true but that's not going to focus on. Let's talk about this corona crisis so the viruses now hit all fifty states last count about forty one thousand one hundred sixty seven people in the United States have been confirmed to have the corona virus though many other cases are probably out there just undetected of those reported cases. Four hundred and eighty five have died with ninety five of those deaths in Washington state one hundred and fifty seven of them in New York thirty-five in California and so on and so on four states have now ordered shelter in place orders New Jersey California New York and Illinois. California Governor Gavin newsom ordered a lockdown of the states nearly forty million residents telling them to stay home until further notice according to politico those who violate the directive could face misdemeanor finds according to politico. But it's not a full lockdown that would actually forbid those individuals from leaving their homes. I mean people are still allowed to go to the grocery store. Gas Station drugstores pharmacies. What's the difference between a drugstore and pharmacy beats the hell out of me? Restaurants bars are closed. They are still allowed to provide takeout and delivery. Though a lot of them have stopped. People are allowed to leave their homes in walk outside provided they stay six feet away from others and it's gotten worse than that. Nursing homes and hospitals are banning visitors airports are in pandemonium after enhanced screening measures for those returning from Europe. It went into effect. Hospitals are preparing for a Su- NAMI of patients. Canceling elective procedures. Repurposing their facilities and adding many extra beds as they possibly can. As I said last week folks let's not sugarcoat it. This pandemic has brought New York City to its knees. It's crazy late night. Shows like the tonight show late night. The daily show really all talk shows based here in New York City have suspended production Saturday night. Live is on permanent hiatus. The bright lights of Broadway have gone dark the Vin dark now for over a week. We've already been through this. I'M NOT GONNA re iterating. Wildlife is tough right now. Governor Cuomo has been setting a nice example of what leadership actually looks like giving a detailed informative press briefing daily so as to keep the people informed of where we are in terms of the situation and what to expect moving forward in addition to the social distancing in shelter in place orders. Cuomo also said the state will be sending one million in ninety five masks to New York City and five hundred thousand to Long Island to help protect healthcare workers amidst shortages of proper masks and other medical supplies. We'll talk about that more in a moment. You know. Governor Cuomo has done an excellent job and most people have pointed that out. And who am I to criticize him? Right I mean I love. I love everybody. I never have any complaints. But actually that's Horse Shit. The truth is I really don't have much to criticize. I just have one thing that is bothering me. It is bothering me a lot. It has been bothering me for a while. He needs to place a freeze on all rent payments. He's done it for mortgages. He needs to place a freeze on all.

"Exactly he didn't mention that. Oh and people. People were panicking. They were spending thousands of dollars on flights from Europe back home because I didn't think they were going to be allowed to come back an important piece of information that he just left out of the speech and all this misinformation about testing and about the severity of the virus. It's what it's why we are at this dire point now and I will say it is nice to hear at least some people on the Republican side of the aisle recognizing the failure of Donald Trump. When it comes to stepping up to the plate and leading at a time like this David Brooks Hey conservative columnist for the New York Times. He made his usual appearance on the PBS news hour last Friday and he did not hold back. Here's what he had to say about this whole situation really. I found it in enraging week and I feel a deep sense of anger that the government has responded so badly and frankly it's this is what happens when the election sociopath president who doesn't care who's treated this whole thing for the past month as if it's about him. How do people like me? Minimizing the risks is the stock market. Reflect well on me. And he hasn't done the normal things. A normal human being would do which was to. Let's take precautions. Let's do the backup things we need to do. Any president would sit down with his team and people will suffer here. Let's get ready. And he's he's incapable of that And he's he's even created a Information distortion field around him even today. The press conference today was all his propaganda. It wasn't honest with people and so the fact that he wasn't even aware of this is a sign that nobody's willing to tell them bad news and we've got a dysfunctional process at the heart of the administration at time of great national crisis a sociopath. This is what happens when you put a sociopath in the Oval Office. I just don't like that. There's no light at the end of the tunnel. We don't know we don't have any idea how long this is going to be going on. Life in the United States has just been disrupted it has been completely drawn to a halt and who knows if and when people are going to get back to normal life. We don't have any idea at this point as I sit here on March sixteenth. I would imagine it's only gonNA get worse before it gets better. New York City employs around three hundred. Thirty one thousand people. Roughly a hundred and twenty one thousand of them are teachers. Who Will Teaching remotely next week. That leaves around two hundred ten thousand other workers and the mayor said just ten percent of them more twenty. One thousand are able to work remotely. That means everyone else will not be working. I just hope that everyone is do you know I hope people are staying in touch somehow facetime each other. Call a friend check in on people and try and keep your spirits up. It's scary time irritating time. It's a scary time. Take care of yourself take care of each other checking on people. They need you now. More than ever folks.

I've come here to son's bar in Red Hook Brooklyn my favorite bar. Maybe in the entire world it is At the edge of Brooklyn right on the waterway You can see the Statue of Liberty often the distance number. Go spend the last minutes of being able to be at a bar in New York City With whoever's inside of me tonight just tell me Your name. What you're what you're doing here tonight. My name is Henrik so I was actually going to go like Kia to get like some stuff. Even though I'm not like you know trying to be smart about it. Like knockout side. I was like all right. You know I just want some stuff for my key I get there and you know I get to I key on. This dude comes out is like it's close. It's like they shut it down. It's closed now. It's like what do you mean it's like five. Pm Unlike and he was like no. It's closed So it's like okay. Wow this is really happening. I got shut down. So it's like you know it's like all right might as well just go to. Sonny's you know this this bar we're at right now which is like my favorite bar so because this is your close they're closing it down tonight like eight. I believe so. This is like my last chance to get out and be free before. I'M GONNA be inside for like I don't know how long I guess yeah. Yeah now we're just go like we stocked up on food so I think we're going to be good for a while. Yeah for just one last round before they close. We realized we were in the neighborhood. Sonny's is probably still openly. This is the last half hour we got. We got to do something. We look at the clock. Oh my God. There's a half hour left. GotTa get the last year. Yeah we gotta have the last drink here. This is going to be our last dream for the next four to eight weeks. If not more like it has to be Sonny's right and I'm going to keep drinking at home. Let me ask you this. What are you gonNA miss from being in a bar? What'S THE DIFFERENCE Of course just bumping into a friend or meet a new person senior like the classic bartender everything that Bar has offer. You know. You're outside of your house which is good if you live in a tiny like shoebox apartment that a lot of us. Do you know. Yeah little glass of wine just like a small one. Yeah well it's Molin Shawn W. Name where we're at right now. My Name is tuna on Sunday sport. And what do you do here at? Sonny's bar well. I run this fine establishment while I should say on this point establishment. Do your own it and you run it. I'd run it. Well thank you. How are you feeling? What are you thinking right now? Well I've been through a crisis or two before and there's one thing to fight you know the new boogeyman. Which is this virus. Another to cope with the fear that it instills in all of us. And what I try to concentrate on is how to take care of your emotional health because the fear is the alarm clock that wakes us up into action but if we keep that alarm clock ringing we'll just drive us crazy and we can take care of business. This will pass. Believe it or not it will pass. It's like I'm the Ouija and then there's an agent proverb that a love that goes like this. Either we'll go well or it will pass and those are two good options and we will get through this and this special. In New Yorkers we will get through. Because we're hardy bunch in. Oh we just buckled down and get through stuff. I guess we got to close this place down Oh I think we got about fifteen minutes in which I will enjoy my little glass of wine. Cheers all right well. It's just a couple of minutes after eight. The music has been turned off. The patrons have been asked to go home and just me and the bartender and the owner speaking in Norwegian to her region friends who are now putting on their coats tuna now that the bars closed emptied. Like how are you feeling about financial aspect of being closed for a week? Two weeks three weeks a month maybe two months. I do have to say that the finances Roy Ostracizing me out more than the virus. It's like I feel like we have a plan in place for how to try to prevent the spread of the virus but we need a financial plan unless my main worry right now. It's a big uncertainty when you look out at all the other businesses in New York from restaurants to taxi drivers. Like how common do you think that feeling that you're having is? I think it's in everybody's heart you know. I'm in New York City. It's a place where people hustle. We're I think every New Yorker is a hustler unless you would just born into money you know how to hustle otherwise you just go back home again but that being said we also know how to get through a crisis and we've been tested before and this is a test will take it day by day and you know if you feel like you are paralyzed and can't do something about the situation. You're in you know if you can't take that first step trying to lift the foot and you can't lift your foot try to wiggle toe and we'll get through it..

Everything's running slow with doing half of what we use fifty percent less than before easily sixty percents Across America businesses are scaling back firing workers and shutting their doors because of the corona virus.

"The way that they want they want basically to say people can do what they want in their apartments across New York City collect taxes from us and let us expand. That is not what's going to happen here and collect. Taxes is one of their biggest excuses because excuses they should be giving tax they should be giving taxes but the real big issue here is like name a single person that wants all the apartments and they're building being airbnb no one. So how do you balance there accusations at the hotel? That one hotel guy the The the hotel lobbies or so strong on politicians like you and others. That's what's really driving the conversation. I don't think that's true. I would say that the union here which represents the hotel workers Joel Trades Council They are a politically potent and powerful union. But I think they're they're only thirty thousand members thirty five thousand members not all the unions are much bigger than them. The reason why think elected officials feel good about them is not because they can't being contributions that has nothing to do with it. It more has to do with their able to secure a good contract for these lower income predominantly women of color in New York City or a housekeeper or maid or someone who works at a banquet hall is actually able to make it into the middle class in New York City and provide for themselves and for their families. Airbnb does not allow that for these type of folks who wouldn't qualify for those types of jobs. Even airbnb did have a unionized Leaners they're not going to be making the same amount of money that people are making hotels. The hotel industry has created a real middle-class workforce in New York City when so many other sectors. I don't know I mean ultimately the city of New York just like a whole host of issues whether it's our taxes whether it is the rat laws whether it's the MTA we ultimately don't have authority on it. What do I mean by that? All binny's the one that created the regulatory framework for Airbnb by amending what's called the multiple dwellings law which says what can happen in buildings with apartments and that was done before airbnb really exploded in took off. It happened about ten years ago and that happened because they're actually illegal hotels. There are going up all across New York City Pre AIRBNB and people said there's a problem as a safety issue here that we need to figure out and those regulations were put in place. Airbnb has gone back to the state legislature in Albany every single year lobbying the state legislature to change the multiple dwelling law and the state legislature has been unwilling to do so again. I don't they've been unwilling to do so because of the Hotel Union. I think they've been unwilling to do so because tenants all across New York City. Who Don't even think about hotels or hotel jobs again. Say my quality of life in my building and the lack of affordable housing. I don't want my building. Okay I think the city of New York should have a lot more power and a lot of things on taxes on schools on transportation so on tunnels We Need Gateway Tunnel For Amtrak but do I think he's going to see that to US anytime soon? Now all right last question running for mayor. I'M GONNA ask you tech related question. But what's the one thing you'd like to see even a crazy thing? I in New York from a tech point of you if you had to like is is it the better streets for eventually autonomous parking is it education. That's done remotely soon proved schools. Is there some like pie in the sky idea? You have as as someone who's running for mayor of New York. I think we really need to focus on The young people who who live here and are growing up here and so we've seen how successful programming is and steam. Programming is great organizational girls who code which teaches young women. How to Code and actually get a jar on the PODCASTS. Yeah to get people. In that workforce into that type of development. There are two hundred seventy five thousand students who are Cuny Students City of New York students which is one of the crown jewels of New York City. And I think one of the things we need to do is create the level of job training and education to actually hopefully have some of those young entrepreneurs start those small businesses. Here that you talked about to have the great next Tech Company come from a Young Yorker grew up in New York City. Who Got Him? You tried education here and who were able to get it done. I think focusing on that is really really key. The other stuff about square was going to do. They're still doing well. Foursquare change their business. Model didn't become facebook. Yeah Yeah So. I think that's what we need to do. And then on the other stuff. There is a huge amount of what I've been told I haven't spent enough time studying it. It's been a huge amount of artificial intelligence technology. That's been exploding in New York City actually from local New York companies. And I don't know enough about it but I think that in a city this complicated. Can you figure out a better way to get rid of garbage? Can You Actually Mitch? Bloomberg was trying to do that in an interesting way like trying to get ideas and create idea a couple of years ago. I know he has finished speaking of actually running a tube all along the highline underneath the high line and the tube would go into all the buildings attached the line and people would put their garbage in the tube and it was this what they haven't built island right every everyone puts their garbage in a tube in their building. And it sucks it. Yeah into a main compartment on Roosevelt. Island. Yeah are there interesting things? Hyperloop hyperloop Piper Elon. Musk wants to build tunnels under. Why not have one dig under New York and put all the trucks there? What do you think about that? Boston can't because someone tunnels just trot the subway. That's how you deliver someday. That's the idea. Alonzo building hyper tunnel. You're all the way to New York City. It sounds digging one out. We need less tunnels more mass transit. That works you said you're not going for hyperloop. That's that is the idea behind hyperloop. They're these big tubes and eventually they'll move people like the jetsons. Yes the move people around in these tubes and then I I was always like well. The human body has a problem with going at hyper speeds. Along Sean. Musk's.

"Johnson. He's the speaker of the New York City Council. He's also going to be running for mayor And he's just recently led a one point seven billion dollar initiative to expand bike lanes and reduce on street parking and buses about a night. Obviously the future of cars is a big topic for me. In fact the future of not having cars on owning cars When you think of the city obviously transportation at the center of an and it does you look again at European cities and they used three cars and things like that scooters. You're not so much for what about the prevalence of these Uber's at the privatization of this stuff. Now I know who has been trying to take over payments for public transportation. You lift in here. It's they've had such a struggle in New York and and obviously now in London they're barred How do you look at that? The growth of that now years later you know th they're economically challenged obviously Right now you can see it on Wall Street. How do you look at the idea of it? Because on lot of people feel Oh finally. I've got some good way to get around especially if you're caller or something else. So how do you look at that now years later? Look I think that part of the reason? Why UBER WAS UBER? Successful in New York City is because for so long. The government controlled and regulated yellow taxi cartel basically wasn't able to Grow and expand and meet the needs of New Yorkers in the way that New Yorkers expected and so when this new product came along Uber and lifting these four hundred vehicle companies it became very very popular to have it more on demand for many New Yorkers especially people have colored and not be discriminated against. Because you're hiring through your APP so you're not being refused service and it showed that there was a lot of progress that wasn't being made amongst the yellow taxis in New York City so they were really a market disruptor in many ways but I think the real mistake that we in government made was that they were able to explode without a smart level of regulation in place to have them expand but non exploded in a sense. Where would overwhelm the streets of New York City able is more cars destabilize? The taxi industry which actually still is an important thing in New York City. And you know there's just too many nathe and safe and safety but there are too many of them so right now. I believe the latest number is there are one hundred sixty thousand four hundred vehicles in New York City that are licensed and in twenty eighteen so about a year and a half ago in my first six months of speaker we became the only city in the United States of America to pass a bill capping the number of licenses so now we are not giving out any new for her vehicle licenses tuber into lift because we said there are too many who flooded the market you saturated the market the streets are clogged in jammed. And we need to figure out a better way to grow and it became a real flash point these companies. Of course we're very very much against it. Spent millions of dollars in advertising opposing the work that we did at the council. And I'm proud that we got it done. I kind of feel like we should have done it two or three years earlier before it exploded in the way that it did. They are a good option. For Four New Yorkers especially in places where the Yellow and green taxis don't go to and where the subway services really bad but it is not the solution to actually a long term solution for transit in New York City partially because their economic model is not sustained the privatization exactly exactly the same thing in public school. It's the idea that everything should be privatized. And then they'll recoup now they may be able to do a better by doing bus routes that are popular. And because there's some of those going on in China there's all kinds of experiments going around the privatization of transportation. I was telling you I didn't even know about this. But Uber at announced a a drone people drown that would carry people from the tops of skyscrapers and then go down in the elevator. You're making safe. It's bizarre it's interesting. It would make a trip from Brooklyn to here so quick. Like the seconds right I depends. I don't know but anyway. It's an interesting way to make that affordable for the average person so many of them if there are lots of them. Yeah and that's of course holds. New York has issues around things. Flying in the air about Two months ago here in Lower Manhattan. We were filming. We're taping this podcast. That they now are running at Uber helicopters. Right they do those lower Manhattan. Jfk Eight minutes right and the cost is like two hundred dollars a price. Yes they are expensive. And that's not good for the environment when you think about. What a city is I get transportation and other things but when you think about. What city is autonomous cars? Really were going this idea of that. Have you all thought of that into your plans? Because that's you know twenty years time you know. Alon must be just talking about it talking. Tesla's the other day like that would talk to like excuse me pedestrian out of my way. I'm going to move. How do you look at the idea of autonomous cars which can be more efficient which don't clog necessarily they'll be lots of them? But they move in a very organized way because the algorithm based I think that's exciting and interesting and something that hopefully other cities that are smaller than new. York's interested for contest the first and see what works and then that would be a roadmap for the largest city in the United States of America. And hopefully that this master plan bill that we just talked about once it goes into effect and we star reshaping our city streets and reorienting our city streets. They will be rebuilt in a way that actually makes it safer for potentially automated cars and the number of people that would be using them and would be affected who are walking the streets that the highest number of of people in New York City or pedestrians. So how do you make the street safer for pedestrians? Automated cars may be the best way to actually do that. Because of the sensors and the cameras on them But I don't think we as a city have plan for anything like that. Just getting this bill over the Hump. My Jose Hunan Public Transit and public transit haying for the refurbishment of these. This is an ongoing fight that you've all had with each other well the MTA the Metropolitan Transit Authority which runs the subways and the buses and long island railroad and metro north. And the TRIBOROUGH BRIDGE TUNNEL AUTHORITY I call it. Frankenstein's monster of transit subsidiaries it was created in the late nineteen sixties when Governor Rockefeller took the subways and buses away from Mayor Lindsay. We've been living under this dysfunctional model ever since the MTA. A month and a half ago voted on their largest capital plan. Ever which is fifty one billion dollars. So a fifty one billion dollars capital plan to invest into the subways and the buses and a huge chunk of that money almost fifteen billion dollars out of the fifty one billion is GonNa come from congestion pricing and so we are going to implement congestion pricing here in New York City like London. Has It's going to go into effect on January first of next year January first twenty twenty which is what. How much does it? It's so it's the craziest. Cara the panel that was set up to determine that what the price is. What the exemptions are if you're a low income person or someone ability. They haven't determined any of that so the legislation the state legislature enacted said that a six-member panel will be impaneled in November of twenty twenty this year a year before or six three months. Six weeks six weeks. Six weeks for goes into effect. It'll be impaneled after the November state elections here but before the implementation date on January twenty twenty one and that six person board will determine what the cost is where the gantries are in. The sensors are What the exemptions are on income people disabilities and so even though it's going to go into was set up in such allowed in exactly so we don't know yet. That's a disaster. It's a disaster. Yeah I just got back from. I was in London in November. How they did congestion and I I met with them. I met with the the mayor's office here. I met with transport for London. And they said to me. You guys are way behind the curve. Unique way out in front of this. Yeah absolutely so. Let's get to the idea. The area you you represent time square has in Hudson Square and heels you. This is an area that the Times wrote a story about which is about tech becoming a big boot there now. You all have the media industry of the financial industry and creative Broadway and things like that art. It's always been. It's going to be silicon alley. It's going to do it and never has really. It's sort of reached their and then never has got you don't have you know we'll get Amazon the minute but you have big concentrations for Google. They have the Chelsea area. You've got Amazon coming here anyway without having to pay the subsidies that they were supposed to get but they didn't need them apparently because they're coming in quite strong facebook's coming here spokes coming there Into Hud Hudson right next to Madison Square Garden Right. Exact on top of one of the arguments. I had with Faber on. Cnbc was interesting. Is People called me a socialist? I'm like you don't need to give them money to come to new. You might need to give them money to come to Kansas City or you might need them city in Ohio that really needs economic development. But why shouldn't Europe pay anybody to come to a city? If they want to be a New York they want to hang out here. This is New York. They don't have to pay for it and it was really interesting because I called the socialist. I'm like I'm saying don't give rich people. Subsidies don't do corporate giveaways. It was interesting. It was an interesting debate and then day was that you need to have these people here to create. How do you look at New York as a tech hub in general well? The one of the figures I mentioned at the beginning of this conversation was that since the recession in two thousand and nine. We've seen organically seven hundred. Eighty thousand private sector jobs created and less than one percent of those jobs are created with any level of abatement more subsidy and I think one of the ways to attract businesses and the people to New York City or the city in general is number one. You have to keep crime low. So people felt safe moving to the city number two. You need to invest in schools so that families feel like they can move to the city and raise their kids there and number three. You need to invest in good public spaces parks and streets as we've talked about and public transportation. If you do those three things people will come to your city and so in a ten year period relation regulation terms of business but in that ten year period. We've seen that number of jobs with very very little subsidy so the conversation or on Amazon was disappointing in so many ways. Because I guess I feel like we were sort lost the PR battle on it. I was very critical of the deal. I came under a lot of fire for it And my perspective was Amazon. Should come to New York City. Come but just like the European Union doesn't allow these competitions of countries against.

"Mayer. I'm the director of people in performance or genius. I've pretty much lead all of our talent. Acquisition efforts I it very closely with our CEO. Out here in America to look at the organizational hiring strategy. How we WANNA grow. What type of culture we want to build given. The company is a German based company. We're headquartered out in Germany. They didn't really enter the. Us market till two thousand eighteen so we are quite the startup. But I've gotten a great opportunity to build out our culture. Our mission is clear. It's it's really to empower people to work we're on a mission to empower people locally work and that's with our platform is so can galon pickup job instantly. Not feel like they have to pay to pick up. Were her go through a proposal process but actually regardless of age gender and race they can go on and start working so that's a big mission of art and our vision around that is to power the future of work our vision. It's bring that automation to the talent phase in the hiring and management face for freelancers in two thousand eighteen. The company has seen really great success out in Germany so they decided to expand here in the US. One of the founders came out here by himself and started to build a company right now since that were at about fourteen people. Seventy people globally sit within work genius and we're expanding fats romy any startup. It's always about growing growing and then growing again so I had an opportunity to talk to you about what the growth goals are for the organization going forward in the next number of months. So we're trying to head the triple digit by next year. So we're at about seventy seventy five globally. We're looking ahead one hundred by next year. We're moving quickly obviously. We're hiring now in the US. I've made some strategic hires. We've got an excellent sales later on. We're really looking to acquire empathic marketing leader and then we're just building from there here in the US on the commercial side. I'm personally looking to add at least fifteen people in the next couple of months here. Not too drastic. But it's going to double our numbers so it'll be felt but definitely globally Trying to expand out in Germany were looking to expand not only on the sale side but also on the engineering side and on the product side constantly scaling. Our product gets better. I'm so that's out in Germany in Hamburg and here in the US will continue to hire for sales and Marketing Company Cultures. Important to employees because workers are more likely to enjoy their time in the workplace. When they hit him with the company culture employees tend to enjoy work when their needs and values are consistent with those in the workplace. It makes a great fit. I had an opportunity to talk to Sherry about the organization's culture and some of those key competencies that drive the organization. I think that coulter is so important. It's like a heartbeat of company. And I feel like when I think about working yeses culture it's highly collaborative and then that people will call you out on your blind spot and I really love that it's very driven and Meyer met. You've got a lot of and vicious people. Entrepreneurial People folks that are constantly looking to create the Lucien or very small. So there's always so much to do so I feel like it's one of those environments where it's just super growth minded constantly. How can we get better? How can we improve the prophecies that we have in place and folks in marketing or picking up sale DOPP and and folks on the sale side or sitting with marketing? And and it's a very buzzy? Kaya Culture Right now. Some of compared building a startup organization like jumping off a cliff and building the plane as you fall so with word like driven ambitious growth minded as well as collaborative working in a start up is very different than coming from a large corporation where. There's a lot of resources a lot of money and a lot of people to do the work at start up. It doesn't matter if you wear the VP or the director level. Have you have to be willing to roll up your sleeves and do the work? You've got to be ready to understand that there's not going to be as much struck sure and because of that there's going to be a lot of impact to be made when you shift into a startup environment. Things are moving fast because there is this level of urgency. Where if you don't do it it's GonNa get done and for some folks that mindset at pressure can be too much for other folks that are ready to really build something. I think. That's where considering neither an early stage or even a later stage startup is is really worth it because if you look at early they start up both enter our group here in the US. You've got only fifteen fourteen people next to you so everything you do is setting the example. There's such a level of ownership and so when I'm hiring I even look for folks that have that mindset where they can work on h-honestly they want that level of ownership's I love it. I feel like to work for a company that uses a I in the face of I get so excited. I driven by the vision. I feel like there's just so much value to be created by the product that if I get to be a part of that I feel like it can not only save companies millions of dollars but it can create so much money people and I feel like I have this innate knowing that I meant to serve people in a bigger way and even if that way is just acilitator the growth of a company so that day at home mom can go onto our form and earn an extra five hundred dollars a month and save her family if I e the potential of our company being able to do bat that mission bigger than me work genius wants to grow. So they're hiring. A number of account executive positions in their New York City office share discussed what they're looking for in their account executive roles.

Communication is one of the top feels. We need someone who is passionate about indicating so they know how to console. They're going to be able to lessen our they're going to be able to grow engage and even challenge some of these thought leaders in our faith because now they're working in in an agile way and a lot of companies are just not used to that. They're used to hiring and the cost that are associated with that so an account executive that's willing to invest a lot of their time just to learn about the space to learn about how companies can optimize their workforce so that way they when they're communicating and speaking with our clients. They can ask more strategic questions I think someone who is open to the challenge of carrying a quota right. It's gotta be able to carry a quota and meet and exceed your number and then lastly this role is going to deal with negotiating. So you're dealing with. The men are prize account that pretty long sales cycle so not only. Are you flexing those muscles at the short sales cycle client?

"That's just not true. It's racist sweat. It is New York City's mayor. Bill de Blasio. He's struggled to be direct about the city schools. Even voided calling them segregated until this latest admission story popped up last week. But he has come up with a plan. The one good thing. He has done so far is put forth this plan, which we've endorsed aboard editorial board of times to take the top seven percent highest achievers of every middle school and trying offer them in mission to the city specialized schools, it's not perfect. But I think something drastic is required. And so that's a decent plan. But you know, it's very easy for the mayor to suggest that because it requires Albany approval. So he doesn't actually have to get blamed for it. The mayor could if he wanted to right now put that plan into place for the kind of larger group of schools that aren't really technically specialized high schools they're competitive, but they don't require the exam. He could do that the much smaller number of seats. But he's not doing that. He's not actually. Taking the lead on this issue at all. But it also requires bringing in different constituencies, and I was really struck by the fact that when he came out with his plan, Eric atoms. The Brooklyn borough president came out in favor of this. And then a few months later, you saw that he was less in favor of it. And it was because donors who were Asian donors had withdrawn support from him. And it shows how challenging it is to tackle these issues. I'm glad you brought this up about Eric Adams because and I actually wanna say some people have talked about hearings. Carl hasty speaker of the semi did say he's going to have a hearing on the issue. I think that it's a combination of not wanting to anger Asian communities who have been quite United on this issue. But there's also the issue that within the black community specifically there is not a single line of thinking about integration. And a lot of people are focused on bettering, so to speak all the schools, or maybe integration isn't a priority for them. I feel very strongly about integration. But not everyone does. And so there are certainly folks black community who say, you know, what that's fine. I'm more worried about I have other issues. Let's make sure our PTA's fully funded. So because of that, I think the political will is not yet there. It seems to me the to fix this, though, we'd have to greet on what we want our time. Schools and really all of our schools to do like right now there's this one test for these specialized schools, it's really narrow. We're seeing these are these narrow ideas of who you need to be to be the best. And we don't agree on the metric we're using to evaluate. Who's best? That's exactly right at the end of the day. What do we want our specialized high schools or any of our high schools to do do? We want them to find the kids who are best at taking this exam or do. We want them to find the most enthusiastic accomplished passionate learners around the city. I guess I'm somebody who believes that. There are kids in every single classroom in this city who have high potential, you know, these schools like Stuyvesant and Bronx science and Brooklyn tech. They should reflect the city at large because otherwise, I mean, do you really believe that there are only seven black kids who are qualified for Cyrus? Nobody really believes that. I just say as a parent I've a couple of kids one's in pre K the others in fifth grade. They're in the New York City public school system, and you feel kind of hopeless. There's not a lot you can do as an individual because as someone who sort of believes in certain values. If you aren't really advocating on behalf of your kid. Your kid isn't getting the attention that they need. But if you are really advocating on behalf of your kid, you know, that you're taking resources away from others. And it puts you in this very tight spot. And when I look at it as a parent, I see it as the root of the problem is with created this really scarce resource, which is a good education and the natural instinct when there's something scarce is for people to fight over it. I think that's. Really powerful. And I think that's at the heart of what's going on here. I think the struggle is that while these elite schools are just a small piece of that puzzle. They are such a powerful symbol of the ways in which we have allowed this as you said scarce public good to be hoarded to be. Used on fairly. And I guess what? I can't stop thinking about is. Because I had parents who advocated for me like you advocate for your kids. What I can't stop thinking about is how many black and Hispanic kids are sitting somewhere in a middle school in east New York or in the South Bronx right now who have great grades who come to school and are going to see you know, they could cure cancer. And how many of them are are going to be languishing in schools that are not going to get them there because we are insisting on defending the indefensible. Thank
