Really good (but heartbreaking) story from OK about rural hospitals being forced to close:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/nat ... bf87e40d02

The hospital had already transferred out most of its patients and lost half its staff when the CEO called a meeting to take inventory of what was left. Employees crammed into Tina Steele’s office at Fairfax Community Hospital, where the air conditioning was no longer working and the computer software had just been shut off for nonpayment.

“I want to start with good news,” Steele said, and she told them a food bank would make deliveries to the hospital and Dollar General would donate office supplies.

“So how desperate are we?” one employee asked. “How much money do we have in the bank?”

“Somewhere around $12,000,” Steele said.

“And how long will that last us?”

“Under normal circumstances?” Steele asked. She looked down at a chart on her desk and ran calculations in her head. “Probably a few hours,” she said. “Maybe a day at most.”


Yeah, almost had to stop reading this a few times on the L this morning. Would love IMBs insight.

Forget, for a moment, how refugees and immigrants are treated at the border, and instead, read how citizens are being treated at the border.

Soooo, I’ve become a publisher. I will be joining the non-profit magazine called Arcade. Its a quarterly publication focused on art and design in the Seattle area, and like most publications go through is struggling with a major leadership change.

Arcade is an iconic publication in Seattle. Its subject matter runs the gambit from AI and VR artwork all the way through gentrifications and housing for the homeless. But-its a magazine and if it wasn’t for its unique stranglehold on its own presentation and design, might be dead by now. It does have a very loyal following.

I never thought I would do this in my career.

In short, are the political talkers and pundits on our local TV stations reflecting the changing reality of our elections?

To answer that question, we tracked over 400 guest appearances on local political TV shows for 3 months in 2019. We considered 14 politically important markets, described in more detail below.

The findings were jarring, if not surprising. No matter how we sliced it, the data produced the same results again and again: when viewers turn on a local TV political show, they’re twice as likely to hear a man's views as they are a woman's views. That massive gender gap has obvious implications for how female candidates are covered compared to their male counterparts.
