I stopped 4 times to put the current count into my iphone and restarted the count each time.

Yes, lots of masks, though some on chin!

I will disappoint you: I had to stop 4 times to write down the count into my iphone and restart counting

@JakeSherman  It was just a fun experiment while running. I'm always coming up with little games to play to keep my mind off of the actual running!

Since I keep getting asked: I didn't keep the count completely in my head. I stopped 4 times and put the latest count in my iPhone notepad and started the count again. I think the count is pretty accurate, but I'm sure it isn't perfect.

I kept count simply as a fun way to distract myself from the actual running!

Ari Emanuel: “In ten years, is anybody gonna remember Bob Iger? Probably not. They’re gonna remember Steve Jobs. They’re gonna remember Elon Musk. They’re gonna remember Presidents, actors. You know, businessmen like me, they’re not really.”

From my @dealbook  essay today: "It is worth recalling a moment in 1965...A Wall Street bond firm, C.F. Securities, told Alabama that it would “no longer buy or sell bonds issued by the state or any of its political subdivisions.”

There is a financial literacy epidemic in America. Quick lesson: NYC wasn’t handing cash to Amazon. It was an incentive program based on job creation, producing tax revenue. There isn’t a $3 billion pile of money that can now be spent on subways or education.

Please pray for my pal @DavidLat ⁩. He is only 44 years old. He is a brilliant mind and a kind soul. All of us are pulling hard for him right now. #COVID19  #StayAtHome 

I've been working on this NYT project for months: Many of the deadliest mass shootings in the US were carried out by killers who used credit cards to buy high-powered weapons+ammunition that they couldn’t otherwise afford. No one was watching.

Last month I wrote an open letter to the CEO of @Walmart  about ending gun violence. I got an email that day from @LEVIS  CEO Chip Bergh that it got him “thinking” about what more could be done. Today, he got 145 CEOs to do this:

With apologies @MelanieWhelan1 , level with customers. Mr. Ross has a controlling stake in @soulcycle . He is not a passive investor by any definition. Which means your profits are his profits. He's using his profits to support Trump. That's the reality.

Nice going @Google . Advertisement of the year. Hands down. It captured all of our emotions in under 60 seconds. And I 🥲

I’m terribly distressed by the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and reports of his murder. I will no longer be participating in the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh.

Why is it that Nebraska businesses are getting 90% of PPP loans approved and NY/NJ businesses, the hardest hit, getting a fraction of that?
