The Day After: Interview With Jane Rosenthal
In response to an email from Deborah Einhorn today, I am pleased to be able to share with the Tribeca Film Festival audience a conversation with actress and screenwriter Jane Rosenthal, who plays the title character in the feature film The Day After: 9/11. Rosenthal had the opportunity to speak at one of the Festival’s forums on 9/11. Read Jane Rosenthal’s complete statement below; scroll to the end and click here to download the complete audio recording of the interview. Jane Rosenthal also joins me for a Q&A session later today.
I was very touched by the overwhelming level of kindness that the Tribeca Film Festival exhibited in its inaugural screening of The Day After at the American Film Institute. For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved the movies to watch at the Festival; it truly is the people who make them so wonderful. But I was most impressed by the support and kindness of the Festival audiences. I spoke to Jane Rosenthal, the actress who played this woman named “Hannah” in the film’s narrative, and invited her to join me via Skype for a Q&A session that she and her co-writer, Michael Hahn, have prepared.
Jane Rosenthal: Hello. I am really touched by your invitation to join the Festival for a Skype interview. It’s a real honor.

I was very impressed with the level of kindness shown by the Festival audience while watching the premiere of The Day After. I’ll always remember the warmth and hospitality I felt as a Festival audience of more than 400 people who greeted us as we walked in. It was so extraordinary to experience such kindness at such an unusual time, given my own history of trauma and anxiety.
The last time you stood on a payphone line
Last time I took a payphone line to a local store to buy some toilet paper. I ended up with a very strong sense of shame and embarrassment. I was sure I was being the butt of a joke. The store clerk didn’t seem to be laughing, so I gave her “the look” and went back to my home away from home. I was still embarrassed to be seen in public in such a public place in such a public state.
So what did the clerk do? She got me a hot chocolate and gave me my phone number. I was shocked and horrified by the request. What happened was this: the clerk took my number, got a text from me, and showed up at my door. I said “no,” but she said “no” a second time. And the second time I said “no,” she said “I just need to know your mailing address. ” Because I had a letter from the State Rep. from that very store that “the State Rep. ” had just left after showing up at my door (and, I had a letter from him, too, if you missed the point).
What’s next? How will the state’s politicians react to this “gag order?” Will they do anything? Will they even come to your house? If they do, how will you explain this to them? Well, this is the stuff of political comedy. And as I was saying, comedy is funny… and often, the funniest thing you can do is be a jerk.
What if I need to make an appearance for that party meeting where the party head says “We cannot be represented at that meeting without a state representative present to explain that we cannot hold an open meeting without one of those representatives there to represent us?” What if, a few hours later, a representative called that meeting over, and said, “I’m sorry, but we can no longer be represented at that meeting because you can’t make an open meeting without a state representative.
What Did New York City learn from 9/11?
In recent years, a number of events have made a difference in the lives of New Yorkers over those of other Americans: the first 9/11 attack, a natural disaster, and a long line of terror attacks. This article presents some of those events and how they might have affected New Yorkers’ lives more than any one single thing. It was written by Christopher H. Brown, a producer on The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. Brown is an associate professor of journalism at University of New Hampshire. Lehrer is president of the independent public television network PBS. The NewsHour has one of the highest-rated news programs in the world. Many people in New York City learned how to better navigate the city’s streets on 9/11, how to better protect themselves, and how to avoid terrorist attacks in the future.
By the fall of 2001, New York City had been hit hard — first by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and then by a series of natural disasters. In the weeks and months following those attacks, the city would also be hit again by a bomb in Times Square. The city’s police department was overwhelmed, and people were frightened.
Brown and his co-editor, Paul Scheuring, went to the World Trade Center for the first 9/11 anniversary. They went with a group of reporters from the New York Observer. It was an interesting first visit to the site of the World Trade Center, because the original plan was that they would go to Ground Zero as it was being demolished. But, of course, they had to take the subway. What changed the mood of the city in the days after that first visit was that it was the first weekend of September.
The second weekend of September was to be the one when people of all ages went back to work. That was the weekend after 9/11, a weekend people felt especially anxious. The city that had been so anxious and was afraid of attacks in the city on 9/11 would be anxious and fearful that weekends were to follow.
What happens in New York after Covid?
, Director, Pew Charitable Trusts and Director, Global Health Affairs, Harvard T.
As a global health practitioner, I have witnessed first-hand the devastation that the coronavirus (COVID-19) has wreaked on those within its reach. When I attended a conference on COVID-19 in Australia, I was struck by the intensity of these outbreaks. The numbers tell us the disease is still pervasive, and will impact our health and well-being in ways we have not anticipated. No one in my professional life has ever experienced a more intense outbreak than the one that now sweeps the nation.
What happened in New York City (NYC), is an example of this. The virus jumped from China to New York in late December, and has since swept the nation. By the time of my first visit to the city’s hospitals, they had already treated more than 1,000 people. It was an unprecedented number; in the U. , we typically don’t treat more than 20 or 30 people at a time. In NYC, there were 100+ patients who were being treated for COVID-19 – and even the medical facilities were overwhelmed.
At the time that I visited, hospitals in NYC had more than 400 beds available for the most urgent cases – including more than 200 patients on ventilators, awaiting transfers. Within this population, the total number of people who were in need of hospital beds and ventilators was 1,500. This is not an estimate of the actual number of beds available at any given time. It was the result of the sheer number of people being admitted to this level of care, in a city that has already lost its local political leaders.
I visited hospitals in three areas where the disease was most prevalent: Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan.
Tips of the Day in Programming
To write concise, elegant, and convenient functions is one of the most fundamental challenges of modern programming. You can have a function that takes a function as an argument and returns something else, or you can have a function that takes a function result and returns a function. You get the idea. The code I will be showing you today works fine for a function that takes several parameters, but in this tutorial, we focus on a single input argument and then we will use this function to return something else.
Many other languages and frameworks have functions that take more arguments, and with my focus on easy, concise, and elegant, I focus on functions that take just one argument. This is the first in a series of tutorials that will address the common design patterns that programmers use to solve common problems.
For the purpose of this tutorial, I will use the term function to refer to a simple, elegant, or convenient function that takes just one argument.
