CDC reverses statement on airborne transmission of coronavirus, says draft accidentally published
"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention removed language on Monday from its website that said, the coronavirus spreads via airborne transmission. It's the latest example, the agency backtracking from its own guidance. The agency says the guidance that went up on Friday and largely went without notice until Sunday should not have been posted because it was an early draft they hadn't been approved evidence that the virus floats in the air has. been mounting for months with an increasingly loud chorus of Aerosol Biologists pointing to super spreading events in choirs at churches on buses in bars, and another poorly ventilated spaces. They cheered when the CDC seem to join them in green the coronavirus airborne although CDC officials maintain Fridays post was a mistake Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill are incredulous and promised subpoenas an investigation to figure out what's really going on behind the scenes. This change on the website on Monday is the third time that trump's CDC has posted significant coronavirus guidance only to quickly reverse stance. It's also the latest disorienting turn in a significant scientific debate with enormous public consequences for how we returned to schools and offices the debate over whether the extreme infectiousness tenacity of the virus is due to its ability to spread well over six feet especially indoors and small particles that result from talking shouting singing you're just breathing many experts outside the agency say the pathogen can waft over considerably longer distances than six feet to be inhaled into our respiratory systems especially, if we're indoors and air flow conditions or stagnant. What's clear from such cases is that while the virus Shirley spreads slowly in households among family members, it also spreads rapidly at indoor events. The bring lots of folks together. Meanwhile against that backdrop, an NIH press staffer is being pushed out after being exposed as a secret anti. Mask Blogger, William crews, a public affairs specialist at the National Institute. Of Allergy, and Infectious Diseases told officials that he will retire after the daily beast revealed yesterday that he's the managing editor of the far right website red state were under the pseudonym strife. He is ridiculed the government's activity in response to the coronavirus outbreak a job that he does from the inside.

Articles include one calling the Democratic governor of Nevada. A mask fetishists after trump finance would hold an indoor rally in defiance of that state's covid restrictions. And the White House has also again move to shake up the personnel office at the Department of Health and Human Services. After a series of IMBROGLIOS, the trump administration yesterday removed its top two liaisons between the White House and the Health Department Emily Newman and her deputy. Catherine GRANATO will be shifted work fulltime at the Voice of America. Newman already has spent more than three months detailed to the global media agency as its chief of staff which politico reports has meant that Grenada who was literally an undergraduate at the University of Michigan this Spring and is in her early twenties has been in charge of the entire health departments personnel policy amid pandemic that has killed more than two hundred thousand.

And the numbers themselves are still really bad a third of states or seeing new case numbers that are at least seventy, five percent of their peak infection numbers. The most recent ten thousand American deaths were added in just the last nine days three fewer days than the ten thousand deaths that preceded those. On a positive note, fewer of those infected with the virus or dying than earlier in the pandemic, and that's great news. But the ongoing addition of new cases means an ongoing edition of new deaths and cases keeping at it.

All of the sudden it appears as if Kovic relief has exploded back onto the scene, please allow us to translate this before you get too worked up. This may or may not be a real thing.

Sarah Fares and John Bresnahan scoops yesterday that Nancy Pelosi had her leadership team in her office Thursday afternoon and they discuss passing a two point four trillion dollar stimulus bill next week after Wednesday if that bill makes it to the floor couvert relief is probably dead it'll just be a messaging bill to help Democrats out it Pelosi doesn't put it on the floor. It probably means she thinks she can get a deal and vote on that instead again repeating here for you Republicans say the upper limit of their bill. is one point three, trillion to one point five, trillion Democrats are at two point, four, trillion we laid out the contours of possible bill a week ago but there have been no talks. The two sides have not moved an inch sources told us last night that Steven Mnuchin and Pelosi had not spoken yesterday we're not entirely sure why putting a bill on the floor at the same price tag as the offer last week when move anyone to the table President Donald Trump's instinct is to spend money Republicans no Democrats. Know it. If it were up to Steven mnuchin dams, and ours would have a deal mark meadows is around for a reason that cheap staff represents the angst that Senate Hen House Republicans have. They don't want to spend any money right now the DEM calculus is tough. Pelosi wants to help moderates by giving them a vote, but the left and unions don't want her to go too far to appease them, and of course, Chuck Schumer and Senate Democrats are battling control of the Senate, and that affects how much they are willing to bend. is either side going to cave if your answer is probably?

TikTok reaches deal that would give Oracle oversight of U.S. operations
"And Tick Tock recently made headlines Everywhere when Resin Donald Trump signed an executive order. That would essentially ban the Chinese owned APP in the US for national security reasons. Unless it sells its operations here to an American company. And of course, if that were to happen. We would have nowhere to go to see a million potatoes singing. To Adele. And that would be a national tragedy. This week deal actually emerged between TIKTOK and American company Oracle but some people like Zachary say trump's tiktok policy effectively changes. Nothing. The argument goes like this. It will do little to protect Americans data from the Chinese government because there are still plenty of other ways China could get that data that this move is just a new kind of security theater basically. The hard work of data security according to this actually lies elsewhere. So, Zachary TIKTOK has been banned in Indiana a few other countries, but it's still pretty popular for now it's the most popular video sharing app i. can see why it seems like fun and there are mental creative. They're short I mean the whole nature of the medium has their time limited. What happened with Tiktok this week what happened this week? Should be clear but isn't. Basically, in August, the trump administration ordered via executive order whose legality remains highly questionable that the Chinese owner of Tiktok, a company called Bite Dance. Divest itself of Owning Tiktok within ninety days or face the prospect that tiktok would be shut down in the United States. I broke the deal I said you can't do business in the United States, which is at least potentially within the power of the US federal government based on national security concerns based on national security and the logistics are complicated that you probably could order apple and other people and servers that are hosting tiktok. that. They couldn't do it and it would defacto make it impossible for Tiktok to function. So that is what began a process where the owner of Tiktok, again, a Chinese company sought an alternative way to their cell, the US portion of Tiktok or what ended up happening major deals Rocking Wall Street this morning pushing futures higher. We find an American technology partner Oracle beat Microsoft and become the technology partner for TIC TACS US operations although will not. receive its coveted algorithm so that all took talks data would be kept in the United States on servers owned by an American company and not by Chinese company because the whole point of this was that all these people using Tiktok, these tens of millions, hundreds of millions that data was potentially vulnerable to being used and therefore misused by the Chinese government. How so So the fear was because technology companies in China by Chinese law are required if. By the Chinese government to turn over data relevant data that the Chinese government could tell the parent company of Tiktok, hand us all of your user data which user data of again tens of millions of Americans. and. Then China would have that data. So that was the concern right and and that's a legitimate fact the Chinese government could order that. The problem is, of course, one via our court system, an American court can order or prosecutor can subpoena data. From our companies. So it's not like what you and I do on Google or what we do on any technology provider is somehow. Unavailable. To government if government decides that it's in its interest to get it not to mention the the various many non-government actors, the vacuum, the stuff up and use it for their own purposes that is even more important I think probably more relevant to the China issue which is. Does it matter whether the data is in this case, potentially house by Oracle massive US hardware and software company versus being housed by servers in China. In terms of the ability of the Chinese government to obtain that data, it wanted to obtain it because not just third parties that hoover up data and use it in the whole buying selling and the data market, but just spying tools. Whether it's the NSA in the National Security Agency in the United States or various Israeli cybersecurity and or cyber spying companies or the Chinese government. Most of this data isn't that secure. Not. Like. Triple encrypted quantum encrypted defense department level communications. So likely true that if the Chinese government really wanted my teens Tiktok data, it doesn't really matter whether that data's House on servers in China owned by Chinese company or whether it was housed on American servers on buying American company. So I guess, then how do we get to this point? How did you know given what you just said why has this become such a big issue? How did it start? Yeah it's a good question I I'm not sure. There's a precise answer. It's part of a whole continuum of the trump administration in particular identifying China as a proximate threat to the United States and a whole series of ways competitively in terms of trade practices hence the hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imported goods that have been subject to American tariffs. It's part of a multi year campaign against this massive Chinese telecom equipment company called Wa wa, which has been a leader in next generation five G. Telecom equipment in a way that again, some of the same concerns have existed which is. That the Chinese government would would use the production of that equipment as a way to spy on who met from purchase adequate. And Look a few years ago. There was a a forced sale of gay dating APP Grindr, which was also owned by a Chinese company, and so there was an earlier precedent of forcing a Chinese company to sell an American APP Social App. Because, of data concerns and finally, there's the fact that for years long predating the trump administration. China has not allowed American social media companies like facebook. To function in China. So there's the tit for tat. You know you don't let our social media functioning companies function there. Why should we let yours function here? There's Several year campaign against China which the trump administration's pursued but I think has a good deal of democratic support I. Mean if it's close to a bipartisan sentiment that China, China's a threat as anything we have right now. Why Tiktok? Suddenly became a thing I may partly have to do with the fact that it suddenly became a very big deal in the United States. I mean, this was not a company that had any footprint several years ago and suddenly as. The APP does your so it may have had to do with something that got really big and is very noticeable. Salsa not that economically important. So a lot of people would be royally pissed off Tiktok were banned. It's not like tiktok is. An integral component. To the US economy either during covid or without covid. So it's an easier target. We'll be right back. Everyone wants to become a better leader this groundbreaking new book how to lead shows you how David M Rubenstein is one of the visionary founders of the Carlisle Group and host of the David Rubenstein Show where he speaks to leaders from every walk of life about who they are, how they define success and what it means to lead. Jeff bezos Richard Branson Warren Buffett Bill Gates Ruth Bader Ginsburg Phil Knight Oprah all of them and more are featured in how to lead this essential leadership playbook illustrates the principles and guiding philosophies of the world's greatest game changers discover the expert secrets to being. Effective innovative leaders. Walter Isaacson proclaims reading this invaluable trove of advice from the greatest leaders of our time is like sitting in an armchair and listening to the masters reveal their secrets, pick up a copy of how to lead wisdom from the world's greatest CEOS founders and Game Changers Bhai David Rubenstein available in Hardcover e book or audio, and we're back I get the kind of general personal security aspect of it. Where does the national security aspect of it come in? Is it because there's concern about people who worked at the Defense Department or the military whoever having to talk in in use in their households or people in the Defense Department are not allowed to use tiktok certainly not on their phones. For before this although they may have teenagers who That's vulnerability as well. So it wasn't primarily about like US government employees who might have sensitive data that tiktok would be the back door way that the Chinese government would spy on them but it was generalized sense of any foreign government that is using private American citizen data potentially for nefarious purposes represents a national security threat. Now, it clearly has not represented the kind of national security threat in the estimation of the White House right now when it's Russian. Manipulation of social media accounts the same principle should or would apply right. If you'RE GONNA ban, Tiktok you'd probably want to take action against the a variety of Russian media enterprises that are attempting to manipulate and hoover up American user data. Some of that data's you mentioned earlier in terms of third party is available to anybody for a price just because there's a marketplace for data. Which I think either most of us aren't aware of or frankly most probably don't care if politicos data on this podcast gets sold to fourteen vendors so that it can sell you and me products based on our other computer activity most people. Either like that, or don't care about that. But the national security concern is simply because it's a foreign government that could potentially. Use, our search history or browsing history nefarious. And again a, that might be true but be it's likely that all this kind of data is obtainable irrespective of whether or not a company called TIKTOK. Happens to have access to a lot of it. It's really interesting. So into this whole story comes oracle, you know huge hardware software firm but how did they get involved here? Yes. Oracle is is a multibillion dollar firm that has had the same public profile as Microsoft or Amazon or facebook or apple because most of its business is to other large companies, you know you and I don't tend to go out and buy Oracle piece of hardware because we don't need a hundred and fifty thousand dollars server or. Network system for our employees. They're largely corporate provider throw a huge provider to the Defense Department in terms of cheer equipment and material, and they're huge software company. They're one of the early Silicon Valley success stories and the billionaire founder Larry Ellison has been probably more conservative than not I don't know that I buy into the whole. This is a reward versus. A snub to the other potential main acquirer or partner for Tiktok, which was rumored to be Microsoft but this is an unusual. This doesn't usually fit oracle's business model. Well, that's that's interesting. So what is their interest in getting involved here perceived to be I'm not one hundred percent clear about that I mean look at could allow them to. Have a little bit more of a consumer facing brand. Again, I mean Oracle's. Primarily a software company primarily a database company. Maybe this could help them increase their databases. There's no way that this is a natural fit for goal. But at the same time north this a huge cost for Oracle, maybe it'll produce some American jobs. I mean. They're looking for growth just like everybody's looking for growth, and once you get to be the size of Oracle. Growth gets harder some of they're also looking for a DIFFERENT INDUSTRY TO BE President Chore? So. What exactly did they given? What did they get here that as of this conversation is not one hundred percent clear off so it was presented as or go by tiktok. That is not the case or at least it's not the case now and as possible. The deal will be scuttled or change given that all of this has to be approved by the government has to be approved by committee. Called Syfy S, which is the committee in charge of looking at global deals in terms of US national security, but it would seem that right now. The parent company of Tiktok saw own TIKTOK and get some of the economic benefits of TIKTOK. This Chinese company called by dance and that Oracle in turn will get a massive licensing deal to house Tiktok data and information on its own. Servers and using its own software. So the concern that the Chinese government would have access to that data would be allayed meeting under this agreement arrangement because the data would be managed by and it's housing would be arranged by a US company. The Chinese government could order by dance to turn over but by dance itself wouldn't actually have access to that data. It's interesting I mean based on what you said before it's they're they're they're moving this data from place a, it's not going to be in a different place and I guess the Chinese government will no longer have a key to the door. But as you said before there's many different ways that either the Chinese government or a lot of other. State or private actors can get hold on more or less any data they want to these days right? which kind of raises the question for point of all, this is ENA. It's certainly true. It would make it a little more challenging to get that data under that kind of arrangement. It seems like this a big fight over a big company. That's not actually really about. The literal subject of the conflict here. Yeah. It is totally fair to say that whatever the imbroglio about tiktok has very little to do with tiktok. And everything to do with US policy toward China. And the trump administration looking for some High profile optic to be able to say we're we're being tough on China and protecting American citizens. Again, the oddity of Tiktok is given that so many of its users or young adults. Who Don't vote although who would be? Extremely, Acetate it. If they woke up tomorrow and there's no TIKTOK meeting, it's probably not. The most popular move if what you're trying to do is gain support during a presidential election. So it's not entirely clear what constituency the served there wasn't like a huge congressional clamor for Oh my God. We're all big imperilled by these fifteen second videos. So where do you think things go from here in terms of into in terms of the real story behind all this in terms of the U., S., China relationship and the increasing in. them of that. So I think to some degree regardless of who wins the presidential election. there. Is a train that's left the proverbial station of increasing. Distrust and animosity between the United States and China. But within the context of an incredible amount of economic interdependence that you cannot just snap your fingers and several or at least not without massive massive harm to each part of that equation both the United States and China, and that's that's pretty unprecedented. Right? Right. That's like the Cold War analogy doesn't work because there was no economic relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union nineteen. Fifty S

As U.S. TikTok Ban Nears, Here's What We Know About a Deal
"TIKTOK could soon have a US media partner Bite dance the Chinese company that owns tick. Tock has chosen the American Tech Company. Oracle for the role. The move comes after the trump administration signed two executive orders aimed at forcing bite dance to sell Celtic tops US business over what the President says our national security concerns but the deal isn't done yet. It's still needs to be reviewed by the US government. Here's a president trump had to say yesterday no, I'm not prepared to sign off on anything I have to see the deal we need security especially after what we've seen with respect to China and what's going on we want security so I'll let you know. Cristiano Lima is the technology reporter at Politico and he talked to me earlier this week about what we need to know about the deal and its implications for user privacy. But I, I asked him to explain exactly what Oracle does their a one of the biggest tech companies out there. But certainly under the radar particularly in Washington. So they do a lot of cloud computing services they provide supply chain tools, data management certainly. Not, the things that most people associate with tact when they think of facebook social media companies, but definitely a major power player in the industry that provides a lot of indispensable services for lots of businesses. So they're not really a front facing technology company that we think about when we think about like what tech companies we know off the top of our heads, why would oracle be interested in buying or partnering Tiktok? That's what makes this such an interesting move for them. of tech companies that we've seen come under intense scrutiny in Washington has been the public facing ones that the facebooks the Google's the twitter's of the world, and this would be oracle really stepping into a potentially a lot of that scrutiny by taking a potential stake, a partnership bowl in Tiktok, which has faced its own political headwinds in Washington, not only on these national security issues that are getting so much attention now, but also along the lines of. Privacy and content moderation issues but it is a company that has seen its user base really expand this urine twenty twenty with a lot of people staying at home on their APPs rolling through the popular videos, and so it's certainly was a very appetizing company for a lot of its suitors were pursuing the company and it's a chance for Oracle to release order to step up its its profile.
President Von Der Leyen's State of the Union Address: Charting the Course Out of the Coronavirus
"People want to move out of this corona world out of this fragility out of uncertainty they're ready for change and they're ready to move on earth. Lafond Lines tweet ahead of her first State of the Union address was full of Vim, vigor and dynamism. Her focus is one of recovery being achieved through making the E U Carbon-neutral. She said the e you should set a target to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least fifty, five percent by twenty thirty that's up from a current target of forty percent.

Cough is the international climate politics reporter for politico. Everyone. Welcome to the program clinic. Good to have you. Thank you very much good morning in Brussels. This was a hugely important first speech for US love underline wasn't it? Yes. Indeed I mean festival as he said, it's her first one and then secondly, of course comes at a time when I'm pretty much everything has changed the thing. Kobe. Pretty much over through all of the original plants she had her commissioned head. which was also, it's been interesting to see how she would frame some of the main policy priorities. In her speech yesterday. And the way she framed him was very much from an environmental perspective wasn't it? Exactly, I think one of the interesting aspects of today's speech was that she very much emphasized to green course that the European Commission once the you to go and you may know in December she had announced to flagship programme of the European Green deal that's meant to make the. Climate neutral. So slash greenhouse gas emissions to zero, but twenty fifty and she very much again doubled down on that message yesterday saying that pursuing that course an even strengthening efforts to cut emissions will very much help the US 'em attempts to come out of the pandemic economic fallout as well as become more, and that's a new word more resilience and two whether future crises. How does she intend to fuse the two ideas namely of recovery from covert economically and to ensure that the European. Union is carbon neutral twenty-fifty.

Why Are Americans So Uneasy About Contact Tracing
"19 cases continues to be foiled by conspiracy theories and a lack of what really clear messages from the federal level Political examination of 14 states in New York City's Contact rules show ah, number of covert 19 patients that are refusing to tell public health workers whom they've had contact with. So that thwarts the efforts of slowing the spread of the disease. And for more we're joined live on the KCBS Ring. Central News Line by Alice Miranda Cole Stina Healthcare reporter for Politico. So Alice wired those who contract the virus skeptical or may be hesitant to give up their contact tracing information. Yes, And so it's important to also understand that the people that actually get on the phone with these contact tracers to even ask the question in the first place are a minority of folks because No, you have not enough tracers. We have a shortage across the country. It's not enough to keep up with the pace of the virus, and a lot of people aren't answering the phone at all. Lot of people don't answer unknown numbers. Even when all the stars align and the trace. They're actually gets the person on the phone who tested positive and says, We really need to know who you've been around in the last few days, a lot of the majority of the time in many faiths we found The person is refusing to provide that information. And there's just widespread misunderstandings about what contact tracing is and how it works and how that information is shared. There are rampant conspiracy, serious and some instances promoted by prominent figures on the right. Who are you? In conversation with the Trump administration. Let's say and The Trump Administration has also not made much of an effort at all. To educate the public explain what contact tracing is and encourage people to cooperate and participate. And so we talked. A lot of Public health folks all around the country experts and leaders of health departments and they say, Look, you would think that in this kind of pandemics of all government be running TV spots radioactive Syllable saying, you know, answer the call. Do your part at not being any of that. Okay, You just mentioned the right what aboutthe left, though. So there is a lot of fear and misunderstanding of what contact thing is. You have a lot of cities, ripples that immigrants even who have no status, are afraid to talk to a contact tracer because of their immigration status. There's concern about sharing information with police. A lot of people were at protests and have been asked about that activity and are afraid of divulging that even though there is no information sharing between Public health department doing contact tracing and law enforcement. People don't know that And so there's just all of this. Ignorance and misunderstanding around this very basic public health strategy that could be addressed by some sort of widespread in campaign. You have so cities Trying to do this, but it is happening on an absolute What do you think is testing expanses is going to be more of a problem then. Is this going to make a big impact in in in in tracking and tracing as we move forward? I think so. And you know you still have faith that our Trying to ramp up their contact a reporter Why only which is having a very bad outfit right now, and they did not ramped up their contact tracing stuff when the peace countless look now that they can catch up. And they're more people happening in different areas. So as people go back, go back to school. As we season the top of the Alice, I don't want it.

Trump's Loyal Wing Man Pence Gives RNC Speech On Wednesday
"The Republican National Convention enters Day three and tonight The list of speakers will include more Trump family, White House staff and vice President Mike Pence, who will be the headliner? The veep won't be speaking from the White House. Instead, he'll be at Baltimore's historic Fort McHenry. Let's dive a little deeper on who's up there talking points and how the convention is faring with Politico co founder John Harris High you, John Good afternoon. So let's start with Mike Pence. Any idea why he chose Fort McHenry for his speech and what theme he will be addressing Well, it certainly is. Ah, majestic setting. If you've ever been up there in Baltimore, the theme he's going to be stretching is like the others. Donald Trump's Competence in leadership. It's really the the rebuttal to the indictment the Democrats made so persistently against him a week ago. Ah Ah, and then also when a vice president speaks to a convention like this, obviously, in most instances, they're also looking to the future. Might he be the one accepting the Republican nomination four years ago? And so certainly that is on his mind. Outgoing adviser Kellyanne Conway speaks tonight, John She has been a steadfast ally and important voice for the president, any idea what she'll be touching on as she winds down her tenure? Yeah, I think that she is going to be part of the reassurance campaign. This convention. Hillary so far has been one mobilisation. Getting the Republican base worked up. Primarily, they're doing that with indictments. Ah, warning that Joe Biden would be a terrible leader and then also it's about reassurance. People who think that President Trump is too this or too volatile. Ah, they're looking for voices to say. He's actually steady year or more empathetic presence. Then he's portrayed in the media. And I am guessing Kellyanne Conway will do a little of both those but more on the reassurance. So we saw the other day the Nielsen ratings for the first night. We're down for the Republicans. The Democrats had more people that particular night. Is there any way to know what this point whether the convention is striking a tone and message that's resonating positively with Americans? It's really hard in this environment, Hillary. The thing we always look to from a convention is what the bounce usually you can see, Uh, parties and their nominees go up in the polls immediately following Conventions. I think this year is a little different for a couple of reasons. One. The country's already so divided how many people are really being moved by these events, and then also, as we've seen, the ratings are down. This isn't a real convention essentially to three hours a night of political programming, and I think it's unlikely that's going to have a big echo as measured in public opinion polls. All right, John, as always good talking to you. Thanks so much. 00 That's politico co founder John Harris. Let's
"politico" Discussed on POLITICO Money
"Talk to politico money. I'm Ben White and I'm working remotely you might be working remotely so politico hosting live conversations on zoom and today I'm joined over zoom by Adena Friedman. She's the CEO of Nasdaq. Talk about the wild ride. The markets have been on the last two months the economic recovery from Cova Nineteen and what more the federal state governments might be doing to help us reopen. Dina Good Morning. Thanks for joining us. Learning it's great to be here. Good to see you over zoom if not live look forward to when we can all gather again together hopefully relatively soon so let's start with markets. It's on everyone's mind. Obviously you're not the chief. Market strategist or chief economist. There In fact you running the whole show but I want to you. Something that you know is on a lot of people's minds and that's what seems like kind of a disconnect between the underlying economy the terrible jobs numbers. We're seeing the rise in unemployment. What are going to be terrible. Gdp numbers starting this week and then even worse in the second quarter and yet markets are doing remarkably well a pretty well yesterday and have come off lows pretty significantly So my question to you. Is there a fundamental disconnect between markets right now and the underlying economy? Do you think that we have to recognize that? The equities markets in particular are really future ranted so when when equity analysts and investors consider a companies in what they're fundamentals are and what their prospects are for the future. It's really the future that drives a lot of equity values. So that's number one number two. Is that there There's your there's a clear distinction you can see the markets between companies. That are weathering this twice as well and companies that are deeply impacted by the prices. So I do think that you are seeing a distinction in egg returns and valuations based on business models and how people are gathering through this and then the third thing is the impact of all of the government actions whether fiscal stimulus and the monetary stimulus. And how that impacts people's access to capital their ability to manage through this and make sure that they can frankly whether through it By getting access to capital they need to manage through the crisis right now. Yeah I was GONNA say I mean it makes sense to me. That companies like Amazon and Netflix would be doing really well since. We're all still getting our Amazon packages delivered and like everybody else. Binging Netflix and Amazon prime at night. But then you know it makes a little less sense that Some other companies might be doing as well as they are wondering. You mentioned the Fed and its significance. involvement in pumping liquidity into the economy and helping to maintain orderly markets particularly in debt markets. But obviously helping the equity markets to what part of the rise in stocks do you think is attributable to but the. Fed has done. Yeah it's hard for me to be able to give a blanket answer that question but I certainly think that the fact that the stepped in to make sure that they are providing equity into the critical aspects of Connie whether that's the treasury's in Municipals mortgage-backed securities Commercial paper all of those actions. That they're taking are creating a sense a- liquidity which means that then I think investors are feeling confidence that if a choose to Get into stock or get into an instrument. They know that they will have the liquidity there to manage their investment going forward. I also think that obviously a low interest rates are creating an ability for companies to raise capital that they need to raise at very low rates. Which then is helpful towards their overall equity value because at lower cost of borrowing so. I think all of those things are kind of in in combination creating a son of lift in terms of the overall sentiment. But I do think it does come down also to business models so I if you look at the healthcare industry. Nasdaq is the home. About Ninety. Four percent of all is tech. Companies in healthcare is one of our our great segments within within are listed companies and Dave. Many of them have done quite well because frankly their business models aren't necessarily disrupted him if they're a biotech company looking to do research on a treatment that's a long term proposition. Investors recognized that and can reflect that appropriate in their value whereas if you are in some of these industries that are heavily impacted. I think first of all. There's the the hit that they're gonNA get just from the short term. An investor has a slightly different us. Helen the last. But you know what's the short-to-medium term impact on their business against the fact that the government is providing them some some cover and some capital to make sure that they can manage through that and I think that's helping lift the executive values knowing that they do have the government To help them help them weather. The storm right and there was some question. I write about this today on politico if anyone wants to go and look at it. The idea that there may not be another big federal stimulus in this maybe some additional aid to states and local governments. But there's going to be a big fight in Washington over. How big the next Support Package has to be with Republicans to worry about debt and deficit not wanting to go big again and counting on the fact that this reopening that the president is pushing pretty hard and that Republicans are invested in that we can kind of pretty quickly and safely reopen states as conditions merit. But there's no guarantee that that's going to be successful and that we don't get fresh outbreaks of covert nineteen That might require a big federal response. I mean when you think about risks to markets and the possibility that we could get you know a real reversal What worries you The most like there are people who fear that you know stocks. Run UP A lot. If we start to get bad news on how the reopening is going. There's a long way to fall from there. How do you think about that well? First of all we're in unchartered waters whether it's the government having to manage through circle at seventy manage through it. We're all in on wars right now so. I think that there are plenty of things to be concerned about in terms of how you're managing through that on but the thing that I think everyone's most focused on is. How do we create a sustainable recovery? And how do we bring people back together? And how people to start living their lives again and allow the economy kicked back into some sort of fear on in a way that does not create of the of the the shoot nature of what we can dealing with over the last several weeks so. I think that there's going to be a lot of caution should be a lot of conservative but also there's a much more awareness now and and I think that's the one thing we all have to recognizes. We were going through our daily lives. Free Unaware of what this virus was with the toll. It was taking and how fast spreading. It's an invisible enemy really and so I think. Now we are starting to make that enemy more visible. We need to continue to get it so that it's much more visible testing whether that's a testing for illness itself for testing for antibodies. I think that's one of the critical next steps that is is being taken to make sure that we can start to bring this enemy away. That will help a lot because it'll moderate behavior that just also just the general awareness is gonNA moderate behavior so I think that help us make it so that is less likely. We're going to have as a shooting issue As we have right now but the key is is diligence patients on and inconsistency from the state to make sure that we try to do this in a way that says you know frankly as uniform as possible recognizing the state is in slightly different condition. Right now yeah well. Let's talk a little bit about comfortably with reopening. I mean obviously. It's up to state governors and city mayors to a large part to decide when to relax social distancing and all the rest of it but a lot is going to be on CEOS like you to decide when it say for employees to come back to the workspace. How they come back to the workspace and that's obviously a digital marketplace. You all are pretty adept I would imagine at working remotely And I imagine you had a decent experience with that but when you think about When it's time to get people back to market site In Manhattan or other Nasdaq locations. What's going to make you feel comfortable to do that? First of all Nasdaq is a global business. So we have offices in thirty countries around the world and each country's GonNa have its own situation. How best to bring our employees back into the office provide the technology to over one hundred markets around the world. So making sure that we can continue to offer that break service that we offer. We've been able to do that very successfully from as well as running our own markets or come home environment so we do not have to rush ourselves back into the office. Ninety eight percent of our employees are working from home today. We are successfully. Managing markets were successfully managing the technology and data analytics capabilities for our clients around own. So we can be a little bit more patient potentially than other companies in the context of what we're going to be looking for number one is certainly You know the infection rates and the death rates declining the government's making a formative statements that either states or countries can reopen and then on top of that creating a transfer public transportation that allows for proper social distancing as well as it should reopen schools and other public services that make it possible for employees to go back to work and then once they're in the work environment we will create a social distancing environment within the workplace which means that we will not have all of our employees at the same time so we will likely reestablish the split team environment that we had before we went to her home and we will figure out ways to make it so that our employees feel that they have a safe work environment in the office but again we can be patients. Not A re company has the luxury of having that patients and so what we have been in with. We've been working with the Business Roundtable and organizations.

"There's no guarantee that this will sex this would succeed under the trump administration in that is going to rachel so much drama in the house when they finally reach a deal and you know do republicans get on board with an agreement on immigration in the house at least it's going to be very toxic i think for speaker paul ryan i think and it's been talked about a little bit welfare reform so my how sources republican sources have said that the rc the republican study committee which is this group of like a hundred and sixty conservatives on in the house and the freedom caucus are both big fans of welfare reform and i have spoken with someone close to paul ryan who said he is interested in this and so we could see the house try to do take on welfare next year through reconciliation or something like that now they're issue is going to be this is an election year and there's going to be a lot of uh swing state republicans who could potentially you know they're they're political lifeline is on their on the line they could very well lose their c to a democrat it's going to be a tough election for house republicans they could you know the house could flip and go to nancy pelosi um so i don't know that those mata republicans are gonna wanna do something like welfare reform next year because i think that they're not gonna want to go home and say yeah we're taking on programs that help people who are poor and who are disabled that could not play well back home that is a good point for us to wrap this on men rachel anything get so much for joining.

"Dot let's talk about the daca deal that on could be with okay i guess it was not a dhaka deal with the deal india low meyer the agreement that lasted all of what like three or four hours with the democrats to tell everybody what bush exclaimed doctor for it it does does so democrats went to the white house when was this september late september met with the president and said we want to do a deal to ensure that dreamers can stay in the country past march when their legal status basically expires and he said sure great wanna do this don't worry about the wall will do that another time and republicans at least in the house had been talking about how we got to have a wall in order to get some sort of deal on dreamers now pelosi and schumer came back and put out this statement and then from what i hear certain peoples and leadership who are close with the president called him and said this is you can't do this the base is going to go nuts and so the president walked map back and it was all because members of congress had called him and and for like you cannot do this to republicans and so i think this just sorta shows how trump when he negotiates he just sorta flies by the seat of his pants and then republicans are end up sort of like cleaning up after him republicans on the hill and they're struggling with that still i mean they were he jerked them left and right on healthcare first they were going to repeal obamacare first and then come up with a replacement and then trump said no i actually want to do both at the same time and so they decided to do both at the same time and that obviously worked out well.
