Goldman Sachs co-head of investment banking Gregg Lemkau wants to disabuse you of any notion that working from his summer home in Hawaii is all it’s cracked up to be. Lamkau on Twitter this week that the sun doesn’t come up for several hours into his workday. He’s one of many people eschewing New York City for second, third, or fourth homes in places with lower infection rates, from the Hamptons to Hawaii. Contractors servicing ski and summer homes in Maine are to get houses ready that are usually empty this time of year, and avoiding routine maintenance visits for fear of what germs their wealthy clientele might be harboring. “I’m not going into a unit for somebody that came here from New York City to expose myself to the coronavirus,” plu.

The coronavirus has reached , and the impact on Indian Country is no different as the virus has spread quickly through tribal nations. Healthcare systems in Native communities, rural and urban alike, are overwhelmed with staffing and equipment needs. And on the crisis the same dire message: Tribal nations are for a pandemic of this breadth, and Congress is doing too little to help them respond. This is a . The coronavirus is novel; the fatal fallout from Congressional underfunding is not. And so, as this virus continues to spread, it feels important to state the stakes as we see them: Powwows have been canceled and casinos are closed up; community houses have bolted their doors and colleges have sent their students home. Tribal economies on.

Two Sundays ago, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, devoted and erstwhile presidential hopeful, reluctantly closed the city’s public schools after pleas from multiple city officials and public health experts and the threat of a teacher sick-out. Later that week, he on whether to cancel the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and then on whether to close the city’s bars and restaurants. On the latter he was swiftly upstaged by his longtime rival, Governor Andrew Cuomo, who issued an order to close bars and restaurants statewide sometime between using prison labor to and plans to cut Medicaid. In the two weeks or so since the World Health Organization designated the coronavirus a pandemic, the disorder that’s ensued has exposed the of American civic l.

Any recent history of “folks” in political discourse must begin with Barack Obama, who used the word more than twice as often as any other president, according to a . When discussing his budget policy in 2012, for example, the president spoke of “folks in the top 1 or 2 percent,” as well as “folks who can least afford” to pay new taxes. Main Street, Wall Street—they are all just folks, in the end. If Obama’s reliance on the word was a rhetorical tic, it was a revealing one that highlights the kind of friendly consensus he believed could exist between the one percent and the rest of America. “Folks” always seem to be working together in a spirit of unity, which is why it sounded so perverse when the president said, “We tortured some folks,”

As governments around the globe debate how to respond both to the coronavirus itself and the economic chaos it has unleashed, a theme that’s come up over and over is how to prioritize what makes it into spending packages. In the United States, right-left fault lines have emerged over the question of bailing out emissions-heavy industries versus . On Thursday, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) a large-scale rollback of environmental regulations as a response to the pandemic—allowing many emitters to police themselves when it comes to pollution. While. that the oxygen in the climate debate should be taken up by the pandemic instead, the two issues aren’t mutually exclusive, experts say. In a warming climate,. , making climate change act.

Reports began emerging earlier this week that. President Donald Trump has been about the severity of the nation’s response to the coronavirus. pandemic, worrying both that the crisis would both continue to occupy his. attention well into the remainder of the year and that the economic impact of the. efforts to contain the virus could be ruinous for his reelection prospects. Those reports were seemingly confirmed after the president retweeted several supporters. urging the administration to endorse a limited mitigation strategy, as well as. a tweet from Trump himself on Sunday, in which he argued that the country "cannot. let the cure be worse than the problem itself."

—a new serialized podcast and radio show by Latif Nasser, a producer at the WNYC subsidiary Radiolab—is about a case of overlapping identities. After discovering that a detainee at Guantánamo Bay shares his name, Nasser (who had at one time gone by Abdul Latif) sets out to discover whether his Moroccan namesake, Abdul Latif Nasir, is a martyred innocent or a murderer. According to the U.S. government, Nasir was captured with other fighters in Pakistan in 2001. Their intelligence said that he was an associate of Osama Bin Laden, a fighter at Tora Bora, and the mastermind bomber behind the destruction of the Buddhas of Banyam. Shelby Sullivan Bennis, Nasir’s lawyer, asserts that her client is innocent. Nasir has been tortured and detained wit.

One of the earliest signs that the coronavirus was about to overtake the United States was the February outbreak at a nursing home facility outside of Seattle. At the Life Care Center in Kirkland, Washington, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases climbed as family members anxiously waited at the windows, prohibited from going inside. By the third week of March, after the coronavirus was officially designated a pandemic by the World Health Organization, of the facility’s residents and 47 of its workers had contracted it, and 35 people in total had died. Because adults over 65 appear to be particularly vulnerable—and because their family members, paid caregivers, and other people who help care for them may now be required to distance from.

A consensus has started to emerge in the media: Cable news networks must stop airing the president’s daily coronavirus briefings in full, which are dense with dangerous quackery. “There is a very real possibility that in broadcasting these press conferences live or in quickly publishing and blasting out his words in mobile alerts, we are actively misinforming our audience,” CNN’s Alex Koppelman wrote for the network’s Reliable Sources newsletter. The Washington Post ’s Margaret Sullivan , “These White House sessions—ostensibly meant to give the public critical and truthful information about this frightening crisis—are in fact working against that end.” Vox’s Matt Yglesias with networks to cut them off “for the sake of public health, journal.

How does an outbreak evolve into an epidemic and finally a pandemic? In Episode 4 of The Politics of Everything, hosts Laura Marsh and Alex Pareene discuss how the coronavirus crisis has been mishandled by the Trump Administration, as well as the history of institutional and governmental response to public-health crises. Their guest, Laurie Garrett, is a Pulitzer-Prize-winning science writer and the author of The Coming Plague, a book about emerging diseases in the 20th century. The current fiasco may feel like it came out of nowhere, but it’s the result of countless concerted policy decisions. “You can’t do public health by privatizing it,” Garrett points out. “The societies that have tried have seen it fail.” Later in the episode, Walter

Even if you haven’t heard of Bjarke Ingels, you’ve probably seen his work. The Danish designer is perhaps the world’s most successful living architect. He has designed parks, apartment buildings, four Google campuses, and a hidden beneath an artificial ski slope. He has also pioneered a of bland modernism that features sleek finishes and complex, blocky forms. At only 45, Ingels is far younger than most starchitects, and he wears his boyishness proudly. He has assiduously cultivated the public persona of a millennial jet-setter, obsessed with Instagram, Scandinavian electronica, and, presumably, his hair, which juts out, like one of his spiky designs, from his forehead. Over the years, Ingels has made much of his commitment to the environme.

I don’t remember doing it, but at some point in the last week I must have turned on my Apple News alerts. “The Dow fell more than 900 points on Friday,” one read. Then another: “Who will be saved, and who won’t?” And another: “How the coronavirus will permanently change our world. Also: The incredible power of walking.” And another: “The Dow posted a 2,000 jump as negotiations in Congress continued.”As. by my colleague Matt Ford, the news from the past few days has. been. an incessant stream of this brand of financial panic. mixed with existential dread. . The world may not be ending (yet), but it has come to feel like a simmering pot finally coming to a boil:. Politicians are. the idea that. the. economy supersedes. the needs. of living, breathing h.

President Donald Trump answered questions Tuesday afternoon for a Fox News virtual town hall surrounded by a frame of graphics. In the lower right-hand corner, a box documented the market’s delirious approval of Trump’s bizarre recent push to ease the state of emergency around the coronavirus pandemic to aid the economy. Another on-screen graphic ticked away the number of confirmed coronavirus cases and deaths. Coincidentally, those numbers were rising as well. “I would love to have the country opened up and raring to go by Easter,” Trump told a seemingly surprised Fox Business host, adding that he’d like to see “packed churches all over the country” in just 19 days. Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer beamed and remarked, “That would be a great Am.

I’ve been crying a lot. So much I worry that my neighbors can hear me through the plaster walls of my apartment building in the South Bronx. The hardest part of every day is when my eyes first open and I am reacquainted with my new surreality: I am confined to my apartment unless absolutely necessary. If I leave, I must arm myself with hand sanitizer, stay six feet from another person, and keep my own hands off my own face. Humans weren’t meant to live like this. What makes it worse is that no one seems to know when it will end. Sleep is becoming more elusive and less reliable as the pandemic—its uncertainty, its isolation, its possible death toll, its mass layoffs—turns my dreams into nightmares. I wake up at 2:00, 3:00, and 4:00 in the mo.

The power of a pithy phrase to sway the ignorant is not to be underestimated. This is one of the less-urgent lessons of President Trump’s recent reversal on whether the coronavirus pandemic is really worth fighting if it means continued economic trouble, exemplified by the president’s Sunday night : “WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF.” A trenchant point, Sir: What if the cure was—get this—worse than the illness? Now our national conversation can be defined by the stupid parameters of this little bit of rhetoric. No one seriously wants to contend, “Yes! I prefer the cure to be worse than the illness; that is good, to me,” do they? Well then, you must agree that allowing a pandemic to rage unchecked in service of Stocks

The. most fundamental tragedy of the coronavirus crisis is human. It is lives being. lost. Somewhere close behind is the feeling of desperation shared by working. people. In an economy where it is estimated that 50 percent of the labor force survives. from paycheck to paycheck, we are facing an economic crisis of unprecedented. proportions that exposes a fundamental flaw in our widely accepted idea of the. relationship between working people and their places of work. That. fundamental flaw is a long standing acceptance across the ideological spectrum. of a division between wage earners and the owners of capital assets. While. owners of businesses are able to fall back on accumulated wealth and assets in. a crisis, it has become abundantly clear that

The news that Berea College was closing sent a wave of confusion and fear through the campus. “Some of my friends were in their dorms, and they just heard people screaming when they found out,” Lily, a freshman from Fayette County, West Virginia, told me the day after the announcement, which came the second week of March. “It’s a lot to take in very suddenly, especially because the day before we’re getting emails like, Wash your hands! Everything will be fine!” Students at the college in rural Madison County, Kentucky, were anxious about how friends who didn’t have cars would get home, about returning to unsafe family lives, about graduation and coursework, about money. A little over a week later, students at Eastern Kentucky University, ju.

History will judge Donald Trump harshly. That, at any rate, is. what many of his critics predict. No less harsh, in this prediction, will be history’s judgment of those who abetted. Trump’s evils, who failed to. stand up to him, who didn’t. support impeachment and removal, even citizens who didn’t sufficiently resist. According to some. believers, if House Democrats hadn’t. chosen to impeach, they, too, would have been tossed into the outer darkness by. the mighty power known as history. The faith in history is everywhere. Before the House voted to. impeach Trump in December, the New York Times editorial board urged Democrats. and Republicans alike to heed “the call of history.” “Trump: The Judgment of. History” was the title of a New Yorker Festival.

When the dust settles on the 2020 Democratic primary season, it may well serve as a guide for deciphering the limits and rigidity of mainstream gender discourse. We saw, in Barack Obama’s for the Democratic presidential nomination, a similar test of permissible utterances from a Black candidate on racial controversies—most notably in Obama’s distancing himself from what he described as Jeremiah Wright’s “profoundly distorted view of this country.”In the 2020 cycle, we’ve seen the steady retreat of a once-crowded field of women candidates, so that Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar were the standing. And in a fraught dispute over the electability of a woman presidential hopeful that broke out between Warren and Bernie Sanders just prior to

The coronavirus pandemic is a nightmare, and the worst is still to come. It is also a moment of clarity about our world. In recent days, President Donald Trump and his allies began laying the groundwork to abandon public-health measures to slow the virus’s spread. They have concluded that the loss of human life is acceptable and the decline in corporate earnings is not. “The whole concept of death is terrible,” Trump told reporters on Monday when discussing mortality rates. “But there’s a tremendous difference between one percent and four or five percent.”Some welcomed the prospect of sacrificing lives, even their own, for the economy’s sake. One of them was Dan Patrick, the lieutenant governor of Texas and a 69-year-old grandfather. “No o.
