TORONTO – Just a week into the new normal and the Toronto Raptors are already making it seem like things are pretty normal.
Or as normal as things can possibly be when you’re a team about to head into a bubble for the resumption of a season that was suspended because of an ongoing global pandemic.

Still in just the second media availability since the team touched down in Florida as they begin their preparations for the NBA season’s restart, had it not been for the fact this availability was taking place over Zoom, with the way the Raptors were talking, you could’ve sworn this was a regular training camp availability.
“It’s kind of like a basketball camp feel. We’re in the dead of summer so that too kind of makes it feel like basketball camp,” said Raptors coach Nick Nurse Tuesday. “As far as what I have seen, it’s been great. Players look fantastic, I mean absolutely. When you see them with the eyeball test, they look great. Their attitudes have also been fantastic and it feels like we are in really early stages of kind of getting back going because it’s such a limited one-on-one skill work, individual type thing we are doing now, but everyone is in a good frame of mind.”
Added Norman Powell: “I think we’ve come in, in great shape. I think guys have done a great job of making the most of what they can and working with what’s available to them. There’s not guys that are out of shape or lagging behind. Everybody’s in great, general shape in talking to different guys on the team. We feel good.
“Obviously we’re a little bit rusty and haven’t been in this high quality of workouts and in basketball for a while, but everybody has been doing what they can, and everybody looks good, feels good, they are confident, and ready to get back into the full swing of things.”
There may have also been some “best condition of my life” talk in there, too.
But sarcasm aside, there’s little denying this is a very confident Raptors group heading into the NBA season’s resumption.
Starting all the way from the top with team president Masai Ujiri saying his team is going to be “awesome” when games start back up Monday, there’s an air of confidence coming from the Raptors at the moment that might be mistaken for cockiness if not for the fact they are the defending champions that, before the season suspended boasted the third-best record in the whole league – even without Kawhi Leonard.
As Nurse explained it, this is a confidence borne from the team’s past experiences together and the fact each member of the team pulls for each other, another reason, perhaps, why everyone came back into this restart camp in as good shape as everyone said they did.

“I didn’t know if we were going to be not really in the right frame of mind or whatever and whatever it was I was going to kind of deal with it, but I would say I am pleasantly surprised with the frame of mind, I am pleasantly surprised with the conditioning and I just think you have a bunch of guys who have a high care factor,” said Nurse. “They love to play, they are guys that are concerned about getting better individually, about their own careers, and it just seems like they’re doing a really professional job. I just think

Getro seeks to help laid off staff find new roles by connecting them with companies that are actively hiring during the pandemic.Created by MondayVC, which powers the job boards and private talent networks for many organizations, the platform currently lists over 5,700 job openings at 570 companies, including brand names like BarkBox, Coursera, and Shopify.Like other job search websites, candidates can interact with the platform by creating a profile and searching for openings.Recruiters can filter through profiles, search for candidates directly, or find qualified talent through Getro’s weekly newsletter.Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Since March 11, the day the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic, over 500 startups have laid off more than 68,000 employees, according to Layoffs.FYI, a coronavirus-related layoff tracking website. Among those impacted, once growing giants like Lyft and Uber have let go of 1,000 and 3,000 employees respectively.On June 8, Evan Walden, CEO of MondayVC, a company that powers the job boards and private talent networks for venture capital funds, private membership organizations, universities, foundations, and chambers of commerce, launched a new free platform, Getro.org. The goal of the platform is to match laid off tech talent to more than 500 companies that are still hiring — over the next three months, they’re striving  to make 10,000 introductions between employers and prospective employees.

After each layoff, Walden and his team saw dozens of one-off documents, Excel spreadsheets, Airtable lists, and websites with the names and profiles of those impacted by layoffs circulating on social media. And among those lists they saw a need and a way to bring order to the chaos by creating one central platform to make it easier to connect out-of-work job seekers with recruiters and hiring managers with open positions to fill.”As the weeks went by and the layoffs continued, we started hearing from hiring managers that these lists were fragmented, hard to search, and the lack of data made it hard to differentiate between candidates,” he told Business Insider. “This created noise in their recruiting funnels, making the resources challenging to utilize.”There was also the matter of vetting these candidates, he explained. “There is an unfortunate stigma around being laid off,” Walden wrote in a post introducing Getro to the Product Hunt community. “Hiring managers are looking for signals of trust, like referrals, when deciding whether they should interview someone, and aggrega
