iPhone : The New Jersey unemployment system relied upon by millions during this pandemic runs on COBOL, and suddenly it’s like 1999. twitter.com/manicode/statu… pic.twitter.com/5uMMiLq57L

iPhone : Thread on what we found: The White House got its first formal notification about coronavirus on Jan 3. Within days, US spy agencies were signaling the seriousness of the threat by including the first of many warnings in the President’s Daily Brief washingtonpost.com/national-secur…

iPhone : I put jeans on today
To see if I still fit
I focus on the waist
The only thing that’s real
The zipper tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to stuff it all away
But I remember everything
What have I become
My pandemic friend?
Every pair I know
Goes away in the end

iPhone : Wouldn't it be nice if we were older
Then we wouldn't have to wait so long?
And wouldn't it be nice to break a boulder
Smashy smashy smashy I'm so strong

iPhone : After being caught trying to cheat in the next election, Trump opposes vote by mail over concerns about “cheating.”

Nonsense. He prefers making voting dangerous for millions of Americans if it helps his re-election.

Every American must be able to cast a secure ballot by mail. twitter.com/acyn/status/12…

iPhone : In the best interest of the communities we serve, a group of Denver metro area superintendents have decided to keep school buildings closed & continue remote learning for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. Read the superintendents’ joint message at bit.ly/2xP1jw9.

iPhone : This is what a worst case voting scenario looks like. The mayor is openly telling residents NOT to vote in these public health conditions, which basically guarantees results will be widely considered illegitimate. twitter.com/mollybeck/stat…

iPhone : So, after much, much ado (hope you enjoyed it): this week's episode of PURPLISH! cpr.org/podcast-episod…

iPhone : I spent a decent amount of time doing some economic forecasting during the 2012-2015 period. I was consistently more pessimistic than median forecasts on GDP growth, and such pessimism ended up being correct. I am feeling similar right now.

iPhone : This is nothing, as everyone understands. It wouldn't be surprising to see 10 million jobs lost in the next report nytimes.com/2020/04/03/bus…

iPhone : There's really no way to describe what we're seeing.

Our new reality is unreal.

The people and places we've known so long & so well have been transformed.

Our ERs are ICUs.

Everything looks, sounds and feels different.

Just one week and it's a whole different world.
