#ThankaTrucker Takes Off As People Find Ways To Thank Truckers For Keeping The Country Run…photo credit: @jeff_waffordFor the majority of Americans, the last week or two is the first time that they’ve ever had to think about how exactly food gets to the shelves in their local grocery store. The old saying of, “if you bought it, a truck brought it” is finally hitting home. And people are finding new ways to say thank you! Last week, members of the federal government, state agencies, private companies, and the general public began tweeting their support of truckers on Twitter using the hashtag #ThankaTrucker. Everyone from the FMCSA to Donald Trump has joined in.

Needless to say they got…

What We Should Have Learned From Iceland’s Response to COVID-19

What We Should Have Learned From Iceland’s Response to COVID-19As epidemiologists around the world try to get a handle on COVID-19’s actual prevalence and its true case fatality rate (CFR), Iceland seems to be the only country that is doing the sort of testing that is necessary to estimate those crucial variables. As of midnight, Iceland had tested more than 22,000 people for the COVID-19 virus, more than 6 percent of the country’s population. Crucially, that number includes seemingly healthy, asymptomatic individuals as well as patients worried that they might have COVID-19. Those tests, conducted by the National University Hospital of Iceland and the Reykjavík-based biopharmaceutical company deCODE Genetics, have detected 1,364 infections so far. Iceland, which is still in the early stages of its epidemic, has reported just four COVID-19 deaths, making its crude CFR (reported deaths as a share of confirmed cases) at this point 0.3 percent, much…

As tech layoffs surge, some support emerges for those without a job

As tech layoffs surge, some support emerges for those without a jobThe massive surge of COVID-19-related layoffs has put tech in a unique position. While the startup world is facing layoffs itself, it is also trying to help get people back to work. Back at the end of 2019, the SoftBank-backed belt-tightening period led to a flurry of crowdsourced spreadsheets with employee names from companies like Oyo, WeWork, Zume and more. The spreadsheets popped up as a bet on the network effect, with the ultimate goal of hoping the sheets land in the hands of a recruiter looking to hire one of hundreds laid off. Now, as COVID-19 cripples the economy, layoffs have surged dramatically past that one period.
