"What's that kid? Those were the sounds of protesters outside the state capitol today, courtesy of W TVF. Here's what Jones had to say right before the vote to expel him took place. We were calling for a ban of assault weapons and the response of this body is to assault democracy. It was signal to the nation that if it could happen here in Tennessee, it's coming to your state next. And that is why the nation is watching us what we do here. My prayer to you is that even if you expel me that you still act to address the crisis of mass shootings, as legislators waited to vote on the expulsions, state lawmakers voted on two school safety bills. One would protect a student who was reporting a school threat, while the other would require the establishment of a state level safety team. Annual school drills take place and that all exterior doors at all schools are locked. Pearson Jones and Johnson all said today that these bills fall short of dealing with what they see as the root cause of the school shootings, access to guns. We don't need a solution that says if you don't lock a door, get someone with a gun. We are making this political statement today by trying to act like we're doing something that is not going to do anything to prevent what occurred. Because this bill is a band aid. This is a very small measure that typically won't have effect on any of the school slaughters that we have seen. One of the Republican sponsors of one of the school safety bills, rusty grills, told Jones it addresses the threats towards schools and that the bill was introduced back in February and is not reactive or a political move in the aftermath of the March 27th shooting. The Republican Speaker of the House, Cameron Sexton said peaceful protesters are always welcome to the capital to have their voices heard. But he says the reason this vote took place today is because these three lawmakers broke several rules of decorum and procedure on the House floor. He also said in a series of tweets on Monday, quote, we can not allow the actions of the three members to distract us from protecting our children. We will get through this together and it will require talking about all solutions. Here was Sexton on March 30th, the day of the protest in question on W okay eyes, the Hal show, describing what he thought of their conduct at the time. Two of the members represented Jones and representative Johnson have been very vocal about January 6th in Washington D.C. about what that was and what they did today was equivalent at least equivalent may be worse depending on how you look at it of doing an insurrection in the capital. It's worth noting the house has expelled only two lawmakers since the 1860s in Tennessee. In 1980, after a representative was found guilty of accepting a bribe while in office, and in 2016, when another was expelled over allegations of sexual harassment. And in neighboring North Carolina, we are seeing a different kind of a display of a raw political power move. Republicans now have super majorities in both of the states chambers of the legislature. That comes after a house Democrat announced she was switching parties from Democrat to Republican. State representative Tricia katham one her blue district as a Democrat by nearly 20 points last fall. The party that best represents me and my principals and what's best for north Carolina is the Republican Party. Modern day Democratic Party has become unrecognizable to me and to so many others. That is courtesy of WRAL as is all the sound you are about to hear from North Carolina. Katham said, the turning point for her was when she was criticized for using the American flag and praying hands emoji on social media and on the back of her cars. Now, of course, Democrats reacted strongly to her decision with the state's new Democratic Party chair, Anderson Clayton, calling on her to resign. Here she is at a rally yesterday. Representative cotton's decision to switch parties is a deceit of the highest order. It is a betrayal to the people of mecklenburg county, with repercussions, not only for the people of her district, but for the entire state of North Carolina. HD one 12 is a 60% democratic district, y'all, and they do not choose to elect a Republican. Democrats. This is no simple switch of party, taking place here. This is now delivering veto proof majorities to the Republicans in the legislature in one of the most hotly contested political battleground states in America in North Carolina. And remember, it's a Democrat there who serves as governor. These new Republican super majorities are seeking new curbs on abortion and changes to election laws and education policy. Members of Qatar's new party held a press conference today on the bill they're trying to pass called the fairness in women's sports act. Co sponsored by Republican state senator Kevin Corbin. As the title suggests the bill was written to ensure fair competition in women's sports. It would be unfair to our students if we ignored some of the biological realities that have measurable impacts on outcomes in sports. This bill sets out to fix those loopholes. A quality NC is an LGBTQ rights organization in North Carolina. It called out the 6th bills state legislators had filed in recent days, saying of the ones dealing with sports, quote, anti trans athletic bans are discriminatory, unnecessary, and do nothing to benefit women's and girls sports. This party switch that alters the legislative reality in North Carolina comes just a few months after the Supreme Court there went to a more Republican majority and in fact, with new Republican members elected to the Supreme Court there, the court just recently decided to rehear cases dealing with voter ID and redistricting simply because there was now a different political majority of justices on the court. Watch carefully how these moves play out in both of these states. Because the eyes of the nation are upon them, and legislators, from other states, will be watching closely to see what they may be able to accomplish and maneuver politically and to see if there are any lessons learned here from both the tactics and the blowback. That's it for today's political briefing. Thanks so much for listening, and if you like the show, please consider raiding and reviewing us on Apple podcasts. We'll talk to you tomorrow.

"We are not devoid of political drama in this country. We're going to take a look at what's happening in some state legislatures driving the political conversation this week. There are a whole host of hot button topics and issues that get the left and the right very animated in our political discourse in this country. Guns, abortion, education, LGBTQ+ rights are just some of them. And what we're seeing in Tennessee and North Carolina is a real shake up in their state legislatures, which could mean shake ups for people who live there and beyond, as other state legislatures look at the political impact and fallout of the circumstances we're seeing this week. In Tennessee, the House voted to expel democratic representative Justin Jones. At the time we recorded this podcast, the house had yet to decide whether two other lawmakers, Democrats Gloria Johnson, and Justin Pearson will meet the same fate, as Jones. And think about this for a moment, three democratically elected representatives to their specific districts. They were not thrown out of office by their constituents the ballot box, they were expelled or likely to be expelled by their fellow members. Why? Because enough of their Republican colleagues across the aisle thought that they crossed the line last week and broke House rules. Johnson Jones and Pearson protested on the state House floor last Thursday with a bullhorn to call for gun reform in the wake of that deadly shooting in Nashville on March 27th. You'll recall three 9 year old students and three adults were killed when a shooter opened fire at a private Christian school. And since then, some in the community have been grieving their losses and demanding their political leaders prevent another tragic incident like this from ever happening again.

"But what I keep reminding everyone is that as a sad as it is, and the world is worse off without Scott park in it. But when we started doing this story initially, no one knew his story and now millions of people know it. And gosh, you know, what an impact? No, I mean, McGee, this is a story about the story about so many things that all of us should be able to see ourselves in. It's a story about the Internet about fandom about being a regular dude who winds up having an outsized impact on people, it feels like this is something that is clearly, yeah, this is a thing that you will be remembering for a really long time. Yeah, and I think a lot of people will, and your initial reaction is, man, that's sad. But if you ever talk to Scott, he was a sad. He didn't see his story as sad. He saw it as a chance to connect with people as a chance for people to learn a lesson. And as a chance to maybe save lives beyond his own, and certainly inspire people. And you know, this is a guy who, you know, he went to NC state, he saw his team win a national championship. You can see the time. Whittenberg. And what if? I'm the dunk. He married the love of his life. He had four kids, three grandkids, he was a pillar of his community, a pillar of his church, and, you know, he got, they won a contest. To go to the Greensboro coliseum, all expenses paid to the AC tournament and had a chance to win a $1 million. From half court, and he didn't win the $1 million. But I think that his impact was worth way more than that. Ryan McGee, thank you for telling us his story. Thank you, Pablo and thank you, Scott. For more on Scott park, you can watch an updated version of Ryan McGee's story this weekend on the outside the line segment of SportsCenter. I'm Pablo Torre. This has been ESPN daily. I'll talk to you tomorrow.

"NC state is one of them. Currently at number 41 in the net, as you mentioned. So to me, if Clemson is able to get that first win, and NC state is able to get its first win, I think that both those teams are going to be in the NCAA tournament. The pit issue is difficult because beating Florida state of Georgia Tech does nothing for you and I don't think that pit's going to beat duke. So as a reminder, listeners, quad one games on a neutral, you're playing a top 50 team in the net. All right, chip. How many bubble teams are getting into the incidental tournament from the ACC? I'm only putting NC state there under the under the unlikely scenario that it loses to Virginia tech or Notre-Dame. NC state Carolina pit Clemson. That's four. How many of those teams are going? One, you got one of the four, the wolf pack. Wow. You got one of the four. That would be so ACC though, to be honest. And then have three teams in the suite 16. Yeah, I know. Nada. NC state Carolina pick Clemson. Who's going? I surprisingly have more than chip. I got pit, I got NC state and I got clamps and going. Because it would be the most ACC thing to have Clemson pit in the final. The way this conference has gone this year. Yuck. Yeah, although the chaos factor for the ACP. That's so unfair of me to say yuck, but I can only be truly myself. And a pit Clemson ACC championship game in Greensboro, North Carolina. Compared to what we could have otherwise yuck. Indeed. Pick your bid thief. Got to be 5 or lower. Oh, easy. NC state and at 12 to one to win. I think that that's, again, I don't see Clemson beating NC state for a third time this season. Clemson's kind of been backsliding throughout the last month or so. I think that the wolf pack when you're looking for what you want within a team that can go on a run in a tournament that one two punch of Taco Bell Smith and jar kell join are phenomenal. So even though they would not necessarily be a bid thief, when you go outside of the top seed line or from the betting perspective, if you want that like some good payout, that's a little bit further down the board. I like NC state, you win that first one. You win that second one, and then just getting to the semifinals, the red will show up in Greensboro coliseum. And the chances for you to be able to ride that has a little bit of a home court advantage have to factor in when you think that, you know, from a power rating standpoint, they are behind a Miami a duke of Virginia, a North Carolina even. But I think that if you're looking for someone a little bit further down the board, a good value pick, I like NC states draw and I like NC states personnel to be able to put it together. I'm going to put myself on a tie to restriction. 7 or lower. So Carolina, it's kind of goes without saying. But no, we're not picking to do it. And then wake out of the 9 hole? Yeah. I mean, again, we're talking dark horses. And this is the ACC. And if there's any league bracket that is going to have a team, 5 or lower winner tournament, it's this one, in my opinion. It is this one. So wake would be the only team really that I think Carolinas feels as equal. We'll see if they can put it together. I just don't have a ton of ton of confidence there. Let's pick the title game matchup. Nada, you're up first. If you're watching on YouTube, you can see the bracket on your screen. Have you gotten the title game? Who do you got winning? This is a listen. Bringing you in. It's your account. Your region and God knows you love this conference. So give me who you got. I know I said Clemson Pitt for the final. I am a I'm just not a masochist like that. So I'm going to go NC state Miami. Miami winning it, okay? Chip, who you got? I got duke over NC state. A lot of wolf pack love on this. Paris is going to be so disparity. He didn't get to do his little well, the same voice uses for every other damn thing. Can you offer yours? And then I would like to sort of elaborate on that. Because I've got about this. Elaborate, we're at the 20 minute mark and ship wants to elaborate. Elaborate you will. I will go, where's like 21 minutes into this podcast? Have we mentioned the Virginia Cavaliers other than when I said they were the two seats? I'll have going with Virginia. I will trust Tony Bennett. Tony Bennett is the only coach in this league that has the team and the coaching pedigree, like the proven coaching pedigree at this point. Larry and I just got coaching pedigree, but I don't want a national championship. I will go, I will go Virginia over.

"We appreciate all of you being here for a number of hours. We thank you so much. The news remains Jalen Carter yesterday. We told you he was heading back facing two misdemeanor charges in Athens, he was booked late last night and then immediately went back to Indianapolis where he rejoined the combine, but that story rages throughout college football. And professional football, especially in the world of the NFL. At this hour, we still don't know much more than we did yesterday. Very little else has come out in relation to Jalen Carter. There are those who are mildly optimistic, in spite of the tragedy that perhaps the worst for him could be over. It is still ultimately going to be up to the authorities in Georgia and as far as the NFL, the people with whom he meets with in Indianapolis and subsequent to that before the NFL Draft in about 7 weeks. Meanwhile, it was a busy day on the hardwoods, Alabama down by 17 at home. Looks like the chances are wrapping up the title. We're gone, Bruce pearl's teams fighting to get into the tournament. And then it all went south for the auburn tigers. Baba came back twice, took the game into overtime and ultimately won by 5. Were you sleeping on the cats last night? We were moving from them being on the bubble or out of the tournament to maybe making a run and then Vanderbilt knocks them off on senior night on a brilliantly designed final play of the game. Jim Phillips, your favorite commissioner. He is in support of a couple of things, including rule changes to shorten the games. I don't blame him. Games are too long. This is where we begin our conversation on this Thursday afternoon with Heather Denton. Should ESPN Heather many thanks appreciate a lot to talk about. Let's start with Jim Phillips. And where are we in relation to making these monstrously long games? Maybe a little bit shorter. While they're talking this week in Indianapolis, they being the rules committee and the competition committee about three, what they describe as minor rule changes to shorten the games and average of 7 to 8 minutes and 7 to 8 plays per game. They would continue to run the clock after first downs. They would take away team's abilities to call consecutive time outs. I think we've all seen where a defense will use three straight timeouts and a kicker repeatedly kicks a 40 yard field goal, makes it anyway, and we all lose 5 minutes of our life. And then the other one would be not an accepted penalty on an untimed down. So that would be at the end of the first quarter or the third quarter. They wouldn't extend the quarter instead they would just walk it off and start it at the end of the next quarter. So all of those things are done with the intention of not only shortening the game, but as Jim Phillips told me yesterday, taking away some of the impact plays that players are involved in because Paul as you know, this is the last year of a four team college football playoff in 2024 when it expands to 12 teams, that means that there is the potential. Unlikely, but there's the potential a team can play 17 games. So while 7, 8 minutes, 7 to 8 plays right now, not seem like a lot, you add that on and continue to do the math and it does add up. So tomorrow I would expect a press release out of the NCAA. As to whether they do officially recommend them, if they are going to be implemented for the 2023 season, it would be approved in April. Heather Dan is joining us on many topics. Heather, he came out yesterday about changes on the CFP committee. I realized a lot of fans only want to know where their team is, but for someone who covers this on a full-time basis, talk a little bit about what happened, what it means, if anything, and where we go from here. The CFP announced this week that there are three new committee members. It's still a 13 member committee, but they all serve three year terms, boo corrigan, the NC State Athletic director will again be the chair, so he will be the voice of the group with rest Davis on Tuesday nights, they've added Miami of Ohio athletic director David saylor, Jennifer Cohen, Washington's athletic director, and the other thing, too, is that, well, they've also added Nevada former Nevada coach Chris alt a Hall of Famer two women are now on the selection committee Paul and I do think that that's important because of these 13 people who have been at the table. This is the first time that there will be two women who are contributing to the conversation. I think that's interesting. I do think it's important, but it's also got a very administrative feel to it. There are 7 sitting athletic directors on there. There are certainly people who have plenty experience Hall of Fame coaches, former Hall of Fame players. So it's not lacking football experience. It's just has a very administrative feel to it this year. I mean, you mentioned all who else who from the coaching world remains on this committee. Jim grove is on there, former wake forest coach, Joe Taylor, Hall of Fame coach. He was at Hampton. I want to say Virginia union. We'll shield is on there. So there are certainly people who have extensive Hall of Fame resumes and, you know, a lot of these athletic directors do have playing experience, but they have certain categories in terms of committee members, former players and coaches, administrative figures, one reporter has always been on there and that is Kelly Whiteside. The other female that I was talking about in addition to Washington's athletic director, former national college football reporter for USA Today. So the whole point of that is to avoid groupthink, right?

"But the substance has mostly been so, so. And while I'm on one, let me address a question I got. Someone's asking now, is this a pit bashing session or a bit? Because we started off. Okay, okay, you know what? And now, and now I'm aware of this. And you know what? You crazy pit fans. This is your fault. You did this. All I wanted to do is tell you how much I'm happy for Jeff KPop. But now you've pushed me. You put in you were ungrateful. So now you push me. Especially this guy is a fellow on Twitter's name's Chris Klein. Oh boy, here we go. I finally ranked it this morning in the top 25 more. And here's what Chris Klein had to say. You know what he should have tweeted? Thank you, GP. It's nice to see. It's been a long time. I would have liked that tweet. I would have not only I would have enjoyed the reply and then actually liked it. Here's what he tweeted instead. How can you have northwestern over Pitt? They beat northwestern by almost 30. I know northwestern beat Purdue, but have also lost recent teams. They should have beaten. Pitt gets no love in first place, unranked with 14s behind them ranked, doesn't make sense. That was Chris Clarke. You know what doesn't make sense, Chris Klein? By the way, that's the story. Wake up. Is there somebody named Chris Klein in American pie? Yes, yes. Could be the same guy? We already have a no context. That's a no context image right there. Could be the same guy. This always drives me crazy. We beat this team. How can we be ranked lower than that team that we beat? The people who make that point never apply the same dumb logic in reverse. For instance, it is true that Pitt in November beat northwestern's brains in at northwestern. That's a fact. Chris Klein, if nothing else, Chris Klein was right about that. Here's another thing that happened in November. Pitt lost at home to West Virginia by 20 5. Why isn't Chris Klein from American pie? Asking me how I could have pit ranked ahead of West Virginia. Given something that happened in November. I'm telling you, on a daily basis, there's nothing dumber than the replies to the top 20 5 and one. Like 99% of them are the dumbest things you've ever seen. Yes. I mean, you gotta get out of your mentions. Every once in a while, somebody makes a good point. But it's mostly. It's mostly just stupidity. Either way, either way. Congrats to pet. I don't want any dumb fans from pet to ruin my excitement for Jim cable. That's sincere. This team was picked 14th in the ACC. Now alone atop the ACC stay in things. For at least a few more hours. On a 6 game winning streak. 5 quadrant one wins at northwestern at NC state at UNC, beat Miami beat Virginia. Like you said, great story for Jeff and that program. You know, he entered this season on a hot seat and was picked 14th in his league. That almost always means this is your last season. Coaching that school. And now it's I'm assuming certainly not going to be. You know, like I said, Pitt hasn't had a winning record since 2016, has it made the NCAA tournament since 2016. One of those things is definitely changing guaranteed. The other is likely to change. So that's awesome stuff. Hell to pit. Hell to pit. Here we go. HTP held the pit. To be fair, though, if you really wanted to get back at the pit fans, just jump on the bandwagon. Oh, oh. Oh. I could. I am one. I'm driving the pit train

I'm Dan Schwartzman that your Bloomberg world sports update, Brian. All right, thanks very much, Dan. The time 16 minutes here before the top of the hour has and I thought we'd take a closer look at whether China's easing of quarantine and COVID measures is paving the way for a more hopeful property sector and joining us now is Christy Hong, Bloomberg intelligence, senior analyst on China property. I was just having a look, Christie, at the Shanghai security news this morning saying that Chinese real estate developers have raised ¥47.6 billion by issuing bonds in December and that's much higher than the 29.1 billion we saw in the previous month. On top of that, we've seen a fair bit of policy support for the property sector, is it working? Right. I think 16 point rescue plan, it comes as a surprise to the market. We're seeing a government's full cost support for stronger developers liquidity. You have mentioned bond issuance, and they have also grown access to billions of bank credit lines, et cetera. But coming from here, we are seeing not all developers will benefit equally from the bowel. You know, the government has stopped shot of rescuing developers already with non payment troubles. The distress developers, they would likely remain deeply distressed and the government is only helping them by ensuring completions of their preso properties and encouraging M and a of the projects. So from that standpoint, we're seeing the government is rescuing projects and not rescuing the distress developers. To your point, Christie, rescuing distress developers not a priority, meaning a ton around for the likes of a is not likely what happens now with the way forward for consolidation within the industry. Are we looking at more M and a, for instance? Right, so we could say that from a policy standpoint, the worse is over. But a recovery in housing market sentiment is going to take a long time. And if you look at home sales, our contractor sales will developers, then make up around 50% of their funding mix. So if home sales is not recovering, the liquidity is not going to materially improve. And we're seeing the turnaround in M and a will likely happen before a turnaround in home sales and a lot of the stronger developers they might want to acquire projects before home prices bottom. But we are seeing M and a could more likely be in commercial projects like offers, retail logistics, but for residential projects. There are a lot of challenges in doing due diligence. A lot of these are heavily indebted developers with all balance sheet debt and there's a lot of hidden risk in rescuing or buying the projects. And the issues with permits and plus the other thing is government lens cells is being relatively cheap at the moment, a lot of SOEs are saying it's easy to get from Greenfield land from the government land cells. And why do we bother with M and a? So those are the potential hurdles. So we've talked about support for the property developers and aiding liquidity. We haven't talked too much about how do you actually stoke confidence in home buyers? Right, so for home buyers, that is a big challenge for the government. And if we're looking at policy in 2023, we see that we see from the last round of support we see a lot of liquidity support for developers and that is going to help them get through the short term liquidity stress. But over the longer run we need home sales to recover. And the home bias sentiment, if you look at surveys in China, over 70% of Chinese are saying that they're not considering home purchase in the next one year. And that is a problem. And that is coming from a few factors like this. Economic and employment outlook and people are not confident in the ability to surface mortgage payments, for example. And there's also a risk of construction costs. You remember the mortgage boycotting in July and the stall home projects. Those are still haunting home buyers in China. And bias might want to stay away from most private developers projects thinking that why would I spend millions today on projects that can not be delivered in two to three years. And the last and the most critical thing is home price expectation in 2016 to 2020. You see prices in China, home prices are China in China, up 5 to 10% a year. And that comes from the certainty of property as a one way bet has Lew a lot of investment demand. Investment demand could have made up around 40% of Chinese home sales. But if you look at home prices today, 50 of 70 cities in China are having home price declines. And that is prompting households rethinking of
"nc state" Discussed on Revision Path
"Way after summer 2020. And I didn't have to worry about could I accept them or not. So that's why I guess I'm visible now and I'm able to celebrate these things. The book, the honorary doctorate all of these things because really the visibility for us professionally changed that summer. Yeah, it really did. And it's interesting because now just two years later now, really kind of looking back on it. I mean, we're recording this right around the time a lot of this stuff happened back in 2020. It's like almost like two years to the day when a lot of this really happened. And it's amazing to see how things have changed just in terms of not only visibility, but also that attention, like it's really, I don't know about you, but for me, I feel like the attention is pretty much just completely died down. Like companies that said they were gonna do stuff, haven't done it yet, or they made a pledge, and they never actually went through with it. That sort of thing. I'm an academic, right? And I guess I maybe been able to use the visibility in a slightly different way. To other designers, right? So it's like if then that hyper visibility of that year and a half of those two years has given me, I don't want to see it like this, but I will see. It's like that has given me permission or validation to do other things. Because then my name became known as a designer who talks about equity or a designer who talks about social justice or that has I'm kind of channeling that into the research that I want to do or the community engagement that I've wanted to do. So it's not quite that I'm depending on the companies that said that they would be doing stuff to do this stuff. Because I'm an academia, but I am using the little bit of validation that I got during those 18 months then. To underpin some of the work that I want to do, right? Whether it's this work about futures and afrofuturism and how we combining that with design and build building, right? At least I could use the little bit of name recognition that I created in that time to now continue to do this other week. Speaking of being an academic, you know, you mentioned teaching at North Carolina state university, how has it been like teaching and going through all this over the past few years? So an interesting thing that I found out during the pandemic is that I love teaching online, which is strange, you know? I enjoy teaching face to face or online, but what I really enjoyed about working online, and they were ups and downs, right? But I first thought online in, I think, 2018, you know, 2019. So just before the pandemic, when we went into that crisis and march 13th, I already had like two different experiences to build on. One, I worked at the D school at Stanford in 2018 to 2019. And I did teach some Zoom based classes then. And then 2019 to 2020, I was at tulane. And I too, and we had to have a crisis management plan where we had to practice teaching online before the pandemic. We didn't know the pandemic was coming. It was just part of, you know, like hurricane crisis management. But so from those experiences, I was able to draw on, I already had some experience and things like bringing music into the classroom on the Zoom call or changing up my zoom backgrounds or you know I'd already started kind of using these kind of warmups warm up activities to get people comfortable online and so certainly the early days of the pandemic, I actually really enjoy teaching online. There's some frustration on as a design teacher, one thing that is complicated or difficult to manage is that we don't have the same relationship with materials when we're working remotely. But then we can experiment with other things. Like maybe drawing together on a virtual whiteboard or, you know, I did some activities where people had to take photographs and bring them kind of add them to the virtual whiteboard. So I really enjoyed that. I think that the last semester that was kind of hybrid was the worst point of the pandemic. You know, because, you know, you can't do both at the same time well. So I really wanted to be either online or in person, but not both. Because there are these other issues that people hadn't thought about. Maybe we can't hear properly, you know, when we're in that kind of format with booze or we, our classrooms, suddenly became very accessible. During the pandemic and then when we went back to this kind of strange hybrid space, they became inaccessible again, you know, like I had one or two students who just couldn't come to the classroom anymore because of accessibility issues like stairs and stuff like that. But what else can I say about the experience? The accessibility issue, the pandemic broad accessibility, or let me not say the pandemic, but teaching remotely made some classes and design classes accessible in ways that they might not have been before. Throughout the pandemic, I taught hearing impaired people in many different settings. And I never had a lot of engagement with the deaf community before the pandemic, right? And so that has always been something that has concerned me as we kind of go back to business as usual. What about all the accessibility that we created? Where's it going to go? Now, you mentioned North Carolina state university being a research university. Can you talk a bit about what research you're working on? Well, maybe first I'm going to talk about one thing that I teach that might be tied to the research. So I teach a class called contemporary issues and art and design. And it is a class about, well, contemporary issues, yes, but it's like equity and social justice. And that's kind of like one of the areas that underpins some of the engagements because we do research and engagement and the public engagement that I'm interested in is very equity and social justice focused. So out of that class, I've been doing writing that's related to the content of that class. So about race, gender, disability, all of these oppression issues, and I'm starting to bring that into the research that I have to say, I want to do, right? Because I'm a new assistant professor at NC state. So not all of it has started. But they're like three areas of research that I plan to continue working in, right? And so the first one is tied to education. And it is about using design and design principles and design pedagogy. The way that we teach and learn design and using that to make stem education more accessible. I see this also as a justice issue. So that's why I said it's tied to that class that I teach. So when I was at tulane, we started to do this tiny experiment where we turned a math class into a design class. And that's like a little bit of an example of where
"nc state" Discussed on Game of Crimes
"You're funny, Murph. Right, always before we get started, Martha has to say something smart. But be in Venice also make us. Then we need welcome to the next episode of narcos, Kelly, oh, no, that's the Patreon stuff. And if you're not subscribed to Patreon, you need to be game of crimes, Patreon dot com slash game crime. But anyway, we've got another stud with us today. Murph excluded. And this guy, we now a while back, we did an episode with Luis Navi, if you guys will remember, it was a book called pure narco. And it was episode 23, by the way. And it was Luis had an interesting history. Coming from Cuba, knowing Castro, you know, was it too Steve Meyer lansky? They had a connection with Meyer lansky. Oh, yeah. He was very he and his family are very wealthy and very well connected. But all good things must come to an end. And as we were discussing for drug traffickers, there's only one of two outcomes you either die or you go to federal prison. And this is the story about how Luis went to federal prison. Courtesy of our next guest, welcome to the podcast, Eric kalinske. Woohoo. Thank you guys. Glad to be here. And I think it's co binsky, right? What did I say? That's the correct. There you go. Come on. That's the way you spelled it. That's why I pronounced it. Look at Murphy's writings too small. You can't even read it. I've heard it pronounced. So many different ways. It doesn't face me. We're just going to use special K, Eric's special K all right, so hey, but this is going to be fun too because we got Luisa's view of what happened in his side of growing up and how things came to pass. And how he came to meet you. In a southern country in the southern hemisphere, after he had been transported, getting ready to ship out 26 tons of cocaine, I believe, to Europe. And Eric, you've ruined things for Luis, but according to Luis and we're seriously too. He even said it on the podcast. You saved his life. Had you not done that? He'd be a dead man because he should have been dead a couple other times, right? Who did he get kidnapped by Steve that nobody used to survive? And he survived. I still shocked that he survived up encounter. It was a stunt double. His stunt double got kidnapped by. Oh my gosh. So, you know, and just to let you know, Eric and I had the pleasure of working in Miami together. That's how we know each other. This is like, hey, everybody knows me. It's a pleasure, right? Listeners. Absolutely. Shutting down. This is like old home week bringing an old friend on here. So Eric, thank you so much for being here, brother. Like I said, glad to be here. Looking forward to it. This should be fun. All right, it should be as long as Murph just doesn't make these corny jokes like he's been known to make. So that's like the pop called the kettle black there, mister. Hey, hey, hey, hey, it's all about the narrative. So let's speaking a narrative. Let's talk about you for a minute, Eric. So as we always do, we want to talk about this thing of ours. This thing called law enforcement. So give us kind of an idea. How the hell did Eric coblin coal binsky? See, I said it right. Cole binsky, special K, how did you get involved in law enforcement? Where did this urge itch desire come from? Well, that's an interesting question because many times have reflected back in my life and asked myself the same thing. What the hell was I thinking? Well, I actually, I got a degree in agriculture from NC state university and at the time I was considering going on to graduate school. In particular, I was interested in working overseas in international agriculture. But I had a buddy of mine. Who was on the Durham North Carolina police department. And he kept bugging me. He said, look, they're looking for guys with college educations. You'd make a great cop. And you know, I grew up with a strong moral background, you know, right and wrong. Good and evil type of thing. Well, if you're going to go into farming, you had to be a farm boy. Well, you know, we had my parents purchased about 30 acres and, you know, we had some cows and chickens in that sort of thing. And really, I got more interest in agriculture from the standpoint of subsistence farming, you know, living off the land type of thing. I thought you were going to say cultivate and weed. Some of my NC state classmates, I think were there Jack purpose trust me. But no, so that was more of the whole idea, which now current state of affairs is probably a pretty good idea. Yeah, the way the prices are going, you might want to grow your own as they say but this time it means. Yeah. I got one quick question for you Eric. You root for the NCAA basketball tournament. Well, well, Carolina, of course. Oh, okay. Not NC actually. I started my freshman year. It Carolina. Yeah. I started off at Caroline. So anyway, so he kept bugging me to, you know, put in an application and more or less, it's time I took some time off after college is Downey outer banks, North Carolina built a house for the family. And so on the way home one day I stopped in at city hall to pick up an application and they said, you can't, you got to fill it out while you're here. So I felt a darn thing out. Next thing you know, I got some background investigators knocking on the door, wanting to interview me and stuff. And another little ironic strange little thing that happened along the way was I used to go on ride alongs with my friend, Kenny. And I remember it was a typical winter day in North Carolina to everything was gray. You know, you couldn't tell the ground from the sky. Everything was green. It was cold. It was miserable. The patrol car that he was in in those days there weren't take home cars. You know, you picked up a car from the previous shift and he hits the brakes and Coke cans and McDonald bags come to flying out on the seat. And then to make matters worse, the driver's door wouldn't open. So I can remember him laying down with his head in my lap and kicking the driver hoping to get out the answer a call. So anyway, my thought was, man, I could never do this. This is such a dirty, dirty, ugly job. I just couldn't do it. But anyway, I get hired in about a year later, I'm in a patrol car and I'm saying, man, did she have to kick the door open to get out? We got some budget problems in Durham. You know, you might have to might have to be why OC bring your own car. But it was like kind of a deja vu moment all of a sudden I was there and said, oh my gosh, here I am, you know, what happened? For those of us who have worked city police departments like all three of us have, you know, when you didn't have take home cards as a trooper I had to take a car which was glorious because you didn't have to share it with anybody. But hey, real quick, what was the worst thing you ever found in one of your cars when you took it over from a shift? Oh gosh. I think the worst thing was always the bag of greasy chicken bones. Other than the gone under the back seat, you know, we'd always check the back seat or the dog or the needles yet. We'd always check the back seat, you know. But. How old were you when you got hired by Durham? 27. I was on the 8 year college plan. I dropped out for four years. See, I just want to get along. I told my daughter because she was talking about she wasn't sure if she's going to do four or 5 years. I say, you may be on the 5 year plan, but dad is on the four year plan. But that's the other thing too. So we used to have guys who would not clean their cars. And so, you know, every now and then you'd find a greasy bag of old stale food and stick it under their run the heater for a while and then turn it over to them and it's like. Anyway, those were so good. Those were some bad battle days, but so how long did it take you from.
Rep. Cawthorn (R-NC): State Board Asserts Power to Suppress Voters
"Here he was last night cut 8. This is Madison Cawthorn appearing with Tucker Carlson on Fox News saying that this group of lunatics, these activists who are trying to invoke the Fourteenth Amendment and use some kind of North Carolina process to get somebody removed. I guess it's the Fourteenth Amendment. They get this, I guess it's a federal process to get somebody removed from the ballot, congressman Cawthorn says this group might just succeed. I can't think of a clearer assault on democracy itself than preventing voters from voting for the candidate of their choice. How close are they to preventing you from running for office? They are actually very close. Now what's going on in North Carolina is that the state board of election, a panel of 5 people is asserting that they have the ability to bar 740,000 plus Americans in my district from being able to elect me to send me to Washington to be their weapon to fight against the deep state. Why they're saying that this is a viable choice in North Carolina is because of the Fourteenth Amendment to the constitution. I'm sure that you were puzzled by as I was after following January 6th when they started saying that we were insurrectionists. Your seditionist, your traders. I thought they were just trying to get a flashy headline. But the reason they were trying to set this basis for fact is because they had a plan to execute a version of lawfare, hashed I'm sure by Mark Elias, the quarterback for a hijacking our lecture in 2020 to try and actually bar America first candidates from being able to hold office in 2022. Do you see why I don't care about Russia and Ukraine? Do you understand why I care about the United States?

"nc state" Discussed on Strong Opinion Sports
"70 to 56. It's crazy wake forest had a crazy low time of possession. Wake forest how the ball basically for 17 minutes, the entire game. And in 17 minutes, they put up 70 points, 7, zero. That's something like four points a minute. That's unbelievable. And I really, really like wake forest quarterback, Sam Hartman. I don't know if he's an NFL quarterback although I would love to see the Panthers sign and maybe as a free agent depending on if he gets drafted or not. But Sam Hartman's style actually really, really reminds me of Sam darnold. I see a lot of similarities in the way they play. And in this game, Sam Hartman was 23 for 29 with 458 yards passing 5 touchdowns throwing he also ran for a touchdown. Sam Hartman is a baller man. I love watching the guy play. By the wake forest is 7 to wake forest is undefeated 7 games into the year. Currently they are the highest ranking ACC team. And they've got some interesting games ahead. They play at North Carolina. They play NC state on November 20th. Sam Hartman to wake forest go on the road at Clemson. I'm really excited for that game. I'm just really, really curious. Where does wake forest end up by the end of the year? I think they have a shot to I don't know, man. I'm really fascinated. I like the idea of wake forest being good. That's so rare and interesting to me. And I would love to see them finish the year off strong with none of heated season or one win or one loss or two last season. If they could beat Clemson, that'd be like so exciting and cool. And next week, again, North Carolina against and Sam Howell against wake forest and NC state wake forest and Sam Hartman, ANSI state is not a name. How did that happen to me? It's four a.m.. Give me a break. But I'm really excited to watch this game next weekend and wake forest as a team I would have never thought would be on my radar. 7 games into the college football season. But right now they are. They're playing very well. And I like what they got going on with the demon deacons. Unranked Wisconsin beat number 25 perdue. Wisconsin won 30 to 13. And I thought this might happen perdue is coming off of a really big emotional win over and number two ranked team, Iowa last week and I talked about my preview for college football week 8..
"nc state" Discussed on Wendell's World & Sports
"Rolled. The sports podcast was yours. Truly when the wallace. I talked to a talked about that before. Clemson in nc state could we be looking at here before the end of september. The clemson is going to be practically all intent purposes eliminated from the college football playoffs. If they lose this game to nc state and what does that mean moving forward if they lose this game maybe could. Just be like man. I know alabama has a championship and then come back and didn't qualify for a playoff i. They did at once but We're not gonna be undefeated every single year and this is a transition year. When when do the expectation change all of a sudden. Now what are we looking at. What credibility will take a hit in terms of. Tony elliott the offensive coordinator if clemson comes out and is just as inept on the offense side of the ball as they've shown against georgia in georgia tech it. You know getting shut out by georgia bad but georgia's one of the best defense in the country only scoring fourteen points against georgia tech a team last year. You put one hundred eighty points on by the end of the first not good not good then you know you have a team like nc state where the defense is just going to be mediocre. Not good. they don't go ahead and put at least shipman twenty four points. I mean that reasonable. The think about clemson here. We're talking about dj. You were talking about skill players. We're talking about clinton's recruiting classes. Being top five top four top three for years upon years upon years. I mean now shouldn't be talking about eight at all offensive line. This is a game for them to get better offensive weapons good game for them to get better wide receiver quarterback relationship chemistry good time for them to start clicking and getting better in a situation where they're playing a team in nc state which is going to be giving the more offensive possessions than the slowdown down..
No. 6 Clemson Uses Goal-Line Stand to Hold off Georgia Tech

Georgia didn't put up three points this last weekend. Or whatever but i was wondering what your take is online. Nobody's gonna talking about how good clinton is probably going to end up. Being far as defensively drank in the nation they had a lot of offense pieces but defensively. You know they're still pretty stacked. I think well I agree with you by the way. how how.

My daughter wants to know the agassi's having a tough time in this question out do they have enough Backups and Depth chart so that they get tired and the high altitude i know may not be a big deal. But aubrey's dad that's a good question I think they do. I think this is a little bit of a nervous game for aggies. And yeah i mean it is different when you play in the games a mile house stadium. I think i speak for itself. There is definitely a difference. But i also believe when you are as conditioned as these athletes are. It should not be a big deal. So i am not thinking. That's going to factor the game. Well thanks so much for the call and you guys take care of yourself. How 'bout Mike in texas a hey my go right ahead.

"nc state" Discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"Was, he was pretty again in that Memphis game, you mean? Okay? Yeah. Yep. 23 and 11 again today. He was really good. Wow. Okay, then maybe as peace in the whole thing together. I was just surprised coming off the season he had last year in the G League where I believe it was like, fifteen, nine, which is great like like good numbers but his deal was two years. Guaranteed. Is that right? I think it might be one. I think he and one steal. It's a two-year deal with one guaranteed wage ones long as bad, but he, he looks almost like a different player, but he, he looks like the prospect. He was when he was hyped up to go to NC State. Yeah. No, I mean, he was one of the best players in Europe. It was like off a very similar situation too. Salty aldama who won the. What the, what was it? The u-19 you 1820. 2018, do a tgp. I think. Yeah. Yeah, 2019 Easter 9th or mixed up. Yeah, similar level Prospect to that, where he was one of the best players in Europe. Coming over decided to go to college. Out with NC State got caught up in the disaster Zone that wasn't NC State. Unfortunately, under Mark, Gottfried kind of declared for the draft decided to return to NC State, play for Kevin Gates kind of works, but wasn't really what he was looking for one to play. For Patrick Ewing at Georgetown was very productive. What was abhorrent defensively like fine for that league for fighting for what they need him to be, is a 12-year senior, whatever it was fine. He was terrible defensively like he's right, but but it wasn't. You still saw pieces of why I thought he was so slow, told him. Yeah. Oh, so skilled by great hands, particularly really good touch great footwork. You could absolutely see the signs their butt off. I mean, he even looks a little bit better defensively. It looks a little bit more. Confident, I still have questions about how that's going to look at the next level. But yeah, like it's it's a valid signing for Miami to take a shot off. I think.
Biggest Takeaways From 2021 SEC Football Media Day
"Things first. You obviously weren't sec. Media days we had a lot of coverage there some interesting comments whether the vanderbilt head coach or other other ones that may people chuck before we get an each team. What was kind of like your biggest takeaway Heading into the season while biggest takeaway happened day. One when greg sankey took the mike at the podium to to use that time which is incredibly valuable real estate where he typically gives a state of the conference address extols. The virtues of the conference talks about the greatness of the league and make no mistake. He did that but he also uses that as a moment to deliver messages and he delivered a message. Surprise me a little bit. Now keep in mind. I was at the college world series win. Nc state had cancel their game because of kobe protocol and get out of the tournament and that was a red flag to me. Because to be perfectly honest. I kind of feel like by that time. This was mid june. Most of us had from sports perspective had kind of moved on. We'd see teams have success in leagues have success putting events and so it was back of mind until poof this. This team gets kicked out and they would have a really good chance as an underdog going in winning the whole thing. So to that point. Greg sankey stands at the podium and he says listen. We've got a long way to go to meet the vaccination pressure within this league and the conference itself is putting out a mos- in commercials in encouraging people in saying that the sec backs the vaccine and keep in mind the footprint that the sec sits in that could be considered controversial by some of their trance so for him to come out and say that that was a giant red flag in my mind. Because i thought myself two things number one if there is still a threat of games being lost in the sec. He that's must be a reason why he's addressing this right and number two if the sec. With all of its resources in alabama messaging in all of its medical support is still in this situation. What does that say about other leagues. You know what does it say about the big twelve or the acc or the american or or going down to the sunbelt. And if it's a problem for the sec. I bet that it's probably a problem throughout college. Football and the concern is the vaccination rates have to get above a certain threshold so we can feel confident that the season can go on interrupted and when i say season i mean everybody. All one hundred twenty plus a lower division teams that will play division one teams. And i wasn't prepared for the severity of his comments in him. Using that valuable real estate time to focus on it.
How Will the Cuban Government React to the Protests?
"Big question for me is sort of. How do you describe the cuban government right now to the view. What kind of government is it. I mean you hear. Words like dictatorship in authoritarian and his government. I mean you hear repression you hear even these reports of people getting detained and you see right. You go on social media and it's an obviously there's a lot of politicization about this topic and you really. It's really hard to navigate through those waters. So what's the best way to describe like the dissatisfaction with the government of cuba as you know as best as you can from the cuban people perspective you know. Language is tricky and this is not to evade the question. But i think that language choices often obscure some of the complexity of the analysis that that's required and that's not to sidestep the authoritarian practices that we've seen in the past couple of days fantasize that the fact that the cuban government is a one party state that doesn't allow other political parties are organized political opposition in a legal way. But i think you know there is this kind of tendency to sort of refer in an abstract way to a regime. Or sometimes you know. Nc state the system of certainly on the part of cubans on the island and in the diaspora on the one hand. Those words make a lot of sense because they are in part a result of the projection of the cuban state itself as simply kind of monolithic entity that is the representation of the people in speaks for the people with one voice. But just like the cuban people are not made up of one political strain of thought. There is diversity in the cuban government. You know whether you like it or not or think it's sufficient or not and i would say it's insufficient right. There are actions of the cuban government that are more pro economic reform less forum. I mean there doesn't seem to be however any kind of fraction government right now when it comes to maintaining one-party rule right and certainly people on the street. Many of them are just demanding. That right simply put
Shorthanded NC State Falls to Vanderbilt, 3-1; Rubber Match Set for Saturday
"Tomorrow. Well, I get to that If I'm M C state NC State's got to be going Oh Lord because they've lost players to covid protocol. Apparently they've lost one player and it's unclear If it was from out and out, he asked co. But he's not with the team anymore. If it is just that might seem like he might have quit or is, Yeah, some some disciplinary action there. But what do you say They had 13 players available players available and I would not imagine that a lot of them are going to be available tomorrow. You know, 24 hours later that that situation will change. So that's what's going on just just yesterday. Inches. How things change. Vanderbilt was down to their last

"Details. Catch the NFL Every Sunday night on NBC. Rivers will work out of the shotgun. Colts Move left or right. Jonathan Taylor joins him in the back field just off to the left of the 17 year. Veteran play action fake to Taylor back to throw a river steps up. He's hit is he throws in the passes through the arms of Zach Paschal? Good coverage in the secondary. It'll be second down in 10 for Indianapolis on that play. Jared Bell dear. The next the new left tackle for the Colts had trouble with the rookie chase on And he got a hit on Philip Rivers. Now the ball was still in pretty good shape to Zach Paschal. Could have caught that. Both hands second down and 10 4 Indianapolis with a seven to nothing lead rivers against Jacksonville in their opener this year, 36 to 46 for 363 yards, But he threw a couple of picks swing behinds out in the flat room to go Now he minds up the cost of 25. He's got the first down on the 27 yard line, pick up 11 yards on the play. So the third year, another NC state product, and a first down, tackled by an NC state product, Josh Jones on the safety Tackle. But that's just a basic swing past. Get him on the outside. Just let the defense and Jacksonville is his own defense. Let them expand into their zones. They get it on the outside and let Heinz pick it up. But he did. Rivers has always liked throne, running backs going back when he had the great LaDainian Tomlinson. First in 10 cults of their 27 on the hand off to Taylor and the middle 30 35 stutter step 40 still going and brought down at the 47 yard line. That's 20 yards on the play, and that'll push him. Over 1000 yards for the season 92 yards rushing in this game today, and he becomes the fifth rookie running back for the Indianapolis Colts to reach 1000 yards rushing. Yep. And right behind Kelly and glow whiskey and quit Nelson inside, Big hole opened up. And he split it. Needed 84 to start the game half We're not even halfway through the first quarter is up to 92 Can he hit 100 on this hand off to cost the 50 tackled from behind as he gets in tow? Jacksonville territory running off between right tackling right guard to the 47. Well, you couldn't Frank, right? How to drop a game plan he couldn't say. Couldn't draw it up any better than they're executing it right now. Get Jonathan Taylor close to 100 yards here on the ground to start with That's it. That's his dream scenario. You play action passes off it. But Frank Wright has always believed in the run game he did when he was a backup quarterback and buffalo with Marv Levy and Jim Kelly in that group up there. It's been his flashy. It wasn't Philadelphia when they want a Super Bowl three years ago, right? It's second down in about four. And here's Taylor looking for whole of metal. Not this too. Well, boy, Nice push forward hitting the backfield. My God, sis, But then he was able to keep the legs turning nearly got the first down, pushed it across the 45 to the 44 looked like he might lose the already got 32. Now Colts just brought into Kobe Percent and Philip Rivers walks off. Field. They used to Kobe percent in short yardage situations. It's it's been something they've done. Oh, you're longing to cope. Better runner. He's bigger. And it doesn't mean he's gonna quarterback sneak it, but they always bring him in on 30 short. This is about a yard for a first down under center empty backfield. Now, just a quarterback sneak pushing for diving down to the 43 yard line. That should be a first down. They made measure. I'm not sure haven't seen a signal from the officials yet. As to whether they're going to give him the first down or not. Hey, just use the quarterback stand right behind the left guard Quit Nelson Quick. Nelson is just a John Deere tractor in tennis shoes, all right, and he just moves by. So that's It's almost 100% guarantee that you're gonna get it. So it is a first down for the Colts just inside the Jacksonville 43. They move left to right their lead seven to nothing with 5 14 to go. We're in the first quarter here in Indianapolis. Rivers under center Jack Doyle in the backfield. The fullback spot play action fake by Rivers throws out the left flat to Hilton at the 30 Little spin move inside another first down Indianapolis at the 28 Yard line. Lots of motion, Brian all over the place. And he finds Hilton for 15. No question he was looking for Jack Doyle. You mentioned him and did a good job of covering him. But the protection was so good that Philip Rivers was able to come off his tight.

Favor of them counting. They shut down. Okay, fine if they count But we're going to go back and look at how some of those years that you were in the lead turned out if you want to go retroactive because I know how some of those seasons turned out.

I'm going to stay with within the No. I'm not going to stay within the conference. I think there's too much turmoil in Auburn. I like Northwestern. Alright. I like the Wildcats win this to Lauren. Oh, uh, excuse me. I will take the over in war. Eagle's okay. Very good. Scott. I'm with you guys on Northwestern. I think there's too much Problem. Too many problems at Auburn and they don't have tanked today, so I'll go with the Wildcats. Okay, NC state versus Kentucky. I've got the wolf pack in this one. Yeah, I do, too. Kentucky is real in a little bit. NC State Scott. I'll go with the SEC on this one. I'll take the Kentucky Wildcats to knock off the A. C C opponent today. NC State Wolf Pack Okay and Ohio State versus Clemson in the C F P semifinal. Lauren Europe first. Well, that's a little a little bit of a tough one. I think Have state has great incentive, with Tebow picking him number 11, but I think Clemson's too much I'll go with orange. I'll go with all burn on the lake, like can I just like to non SEC teams anymore? Well, yes, Tech. But besides that Ohio State Clemson, hold my nose and pick the Tigers. I'm gonna do the same thing. Ohio State. My opinion didn't play enough games even to be in this in this football game. I hope clumps of runs away with this one..
It’s the same old story for North Carolina basketball in loss to the Wolfpack
"On sunday. We spent several minutes discussing a disappointing blueblood with the hall of fame coach kentucky led by john calipari today. We'll spend another few minutes on another disappointing blueblood with another hall of fame coach this time it's north carolina and roy williams the tar heels fell at nc state on tuesday. Seventy nine seventy six so now. Five and three. The other losses are texas in iowa best win over stanford ladder you and i both had north carolina projected as the third best team in the acc in the preseason. Are we still confident. Unc is a top three in the acc. No did i really have them third. I looked double checks man. it's not ideal right now. we both had it. We both had it. Virginia duke north carolina in that order. Well i didn't have carrots. So here's where. I differed in the preseason with some of the projections yours and and others. I did not have carolina ranked in the top twenty five portion of my one two three fifty seven. I i put carolina twenty eight. And i remember before like settling on an ultimate order like my first initial like. Let me throw everything at the wall. I think i'd carolina like thirty six or thirty seven and the reason was they were so poor last year. I mean historically bad. It was one of the five or six worst seasons in school history. Statistically that i was just. I wasn't totally sold on them. Going from fourteen and nineteen a season ago to being if your top. Three team in the acc You know that's probably a four seat at worst. And i wasn't all in on him there. I thought okay. Maybe they can get along the lines of a five or six seed and that was really what wound me wind up with me. Booting them up a little bit. But at this point you know. I watched the majority of that. Nc state game. I would argue. It wasn't even a three point game. Nc state truly beat them by six or seven points now five and three losses the losses all respectable so. It's an interesting situation with unc. Here lost texas in a really really good game championship. Which was obviously nashville. Then they lose at iowa but it wasn't that competitive ninety three eighty. Now they take the road loss against nc state. The win against kentucky and cbs sports classic has almost no value. The win over stanford is solid but otherwise charleston. Unlv north carolina central their next game at georgia tech a week from one. We're talking here. On december thirtieth so i think there is still the chance and with all due respect as always to leaky black here. And he's actually. I think he's. He's been good in spots but they're not as good as they should be. I still really love. The frontline is still think. This could be one of the courts in america but it should be noted fourteen thousand nine hundred last season. Now it's five three. And i'm not gonna guarantee you that this team is heading to the instability tournament and in the preseason. Unc got by on its jersey name. I don't know i. I was always a little hesitant there and some of that has come to the surface. This is clearly clearly not a top twenty five team right now. In north carolina as you mentioned the go fourteen and nineteen last season and the reason that i had them in the preseason top twenty five and one thought that they would have a really nice bounceback season because they in elite recruiting class featuring three five star freshman. The way they're supposed to go from fourteen and nineteen to really good is that three five-star freshmen are great. And they're all fine. I guess but none of them are playing like freshman of the year candidates like against nc state day. Ron sharpe had six points. Fourteen minutes walker kessler had three points and twelve minutes. Caleb love had eleven point four assists two turnovers in twenty eight minutes. Like if you're five star freshman aren't gonna perform like five star freshman consistently well. Then you're not going to go from from bad to to really good. You can go from bad to good from bad to respectable from bad to an ncaa tournament team. But you're not going to be elite unless you five star freshman perform at an elite level. They are not doing that right now.

Interview with Kenny Harper & Manny Torres of Rock My Image
"Manny and Kenny Hello Welcome to the digital marketer podcast. So excited to have you both here. Glad to be here. Excited this is going to be awesome in epic. Awesome Ethic I love it. Can we it do names and voices just people are listening know exactly who's speaking when so introduce yourselves and people now? My name is Kenny Harper and this is my voice. So if you hear me talking, this is Kenny. Harper. Very literal I loved it. Says many tourists and this is my voice and I'm Jenna. This is my voice but y'all know me it won't change. So Amplify Your Business Rock my image. I WanNa talk out where Y'all started your entrepreneurial journey, how you learn about all this marketing stuff and just what led you to this point today. So where were you born? Just kidding I'll give you the fun story. I was born in Virginia, Beach But raised in Louisville Kentucky. In found my first passionate about fourteen years old I went to a metallica concert. I was in the snake pit and I was blown away by the huge performance, the flashing lights, the booming Bass and I knew I'd found my calling in. So I started to play in bands start to learn how to record them. We're doing shows wherever all this fun but you know what I had a passion, but it didn't have the knowledge about running a successful. Business and there's a lot of starving artists out there for a reason right and they have passion they know they love to do and they're good at it. But if they don't know the business side of things, then they're going to run into some challenges. Luckily, I was able to find a way to use my creativity in a different light in marketing. So went to school graduated and then became a student of the craft of business growth and development. In profit growth in particular along the way. I became a freelance web designer. Met My business partner Mr Manny. Torres, we formed a an agency and really started to do a lot of small business marketing. What we started to see is that some of the clients that we are marketing were growing, they're amplifying, they were scaling they're opening new locations. We're just seeing all sorts of success in a few and some of the clients that we're marketing. or saying, Hey, it's marketing isn't working and. We looking at and saying, Hey, we're doing the same thing we're giving you leads. These aren't good leads really. Is it the leads in what we really found out is that? Unless. You have a holistic approach and you have the other components of your business. synergistically, working marking may not be the answer. You really need to have a good sales process a good team, good operations you need to have all that in place, and so that's where the concept of growth amplifiers all came about, which is our podcast growth amplifiers, and that's where we're at today we were with business owners and entrepreneurs who are looking to increase their profitability. Through Proven Systems Ineffective Strategies with guidance and accountability. So that's all the way from Kentucky. To present day in being able to step in really understanding the concept behind taking that rock concept that everyone plays their own instrument. Everyone has their own unique gifts but when you can really tune in and produce that amplify it, that's how things can really be a magical. So that's back story that I have in. Make you for letting me share it. Yeah of course well. I definitely wanted to talk about some of the the interesting tidbits of like your time in rock and music and producing music and stuff like that and how it airs together. So well with marketing but I also WanNa hear I many a little bit of your story and like where you came in where you add metallica concert and may be missed each other that first time. Radically. Even though my family has a ton of musical talent in its history, I've never played any instruments but my unique talent has always been drawing and being creative and on high school I came across the fact that you can actually be a graphic designer as like, wow, I didn't know I could actually do a job with this talent assault went. To, school design in at NC state north, Carolina State, and that's where I started my graphic design career and one things I noticed at being a designer that made me different from other designers is that I didn't just create something that was visually appealing but always thought about what's the bigger picture was the strategy behind it and so when had moved Jacksonville? Design Printing Company. And I was looking for someone to partner with I was introduced to Kenny and that's one of the things that really brought a lot of synergy together was that we both thought about the big picture what's the strategy behind what we're doing what's our ultimate goal, and then how can we really leverage? What makes the client the rock star in the talent a so? that. There was a lot of synergy there when we both went to do more things because we both are all about personal development and growth we said, how can we take our business to another level and Kinney at the time had a cool thing that was rocked my facebook and I really love that branding and when we were talking about what the name of the business should be. He said, what do you think about rock by image Bam? That's awesome.
NC State Study Looks at Gender Disparity in College Esports
"We're looking at a paper published by an associate professor, any PhD student at North Carolina State University. The research appeared in the Journal critical studies on Mass Communication. The goal was to see if college is worth programs have been more successful at crecy gender representation. East sports than professional sports have there are a few women who compete at the highest levels of professional sports. Rockets Karma is well regarded player who has spent time in. Her stoldas women, when major tournaments it so as fortnight, but for dependent environment that doesn't have fiscal differences creating a gap between genders us for to still almost entirely male dominated Nick Taylor co-authored the study and associate professor of Communication at NC State said in the journal quote five years ago we thought collegiate sports might be an opportunity to create a welcoming diverse competitive arena which. Was a big deal given how male-dominated the professional eastward scene was rapid growth of collegiate sports over the past five years has led to it becoming more professional with many universities having paid eastwards, positions, recruiting players at so odd we wanted to see how that professionalization has affected collegiate sports and what that means for gender diversity. The findings did not give us reason to be optimistic. For this study naked, his Co author interviewed Twenty One people involved in these sports programs. Eight of the people are part of Varsity programs with the other thirteen being president of their schools. Collegiate East Sports Club six of the respondents identified as women fifteen identified as men PhD Student Bright Style, the other CO author of the study told the Journal. Quote essentially, we found that women are effectively pushed out of eastwards many colleges when they start investing financial resources in east, Sports Program we talk lease sports might help to address the disenfranchise women in eastport at engaging more generally instead, it seems to simply be an extension of that disenfranchisement and quote. While an interview of twenty, one people isn't a perfect encapsulation of the wide-ranging college. He's worth ecosystem, all twenty one or in key rules of big programs meaning they speak for quite a few more when it comes to gender disparity. College eastwards still have a chance to be a place where we can create more inclusive east sports environments, but `gate-keeping in Tuxes D- are still real problems that women face in the space without focused initiatives that disparity won't get much better.
Chasing My Cure with Dr. David Fajgenbaum
"I've heard you describe your life as two half times in five overtimes. Interesting you know because it sports reference comes easy you. Grown up as a kid in around. Raleigh North Carolina, it sounded like your life you pretty much live. It was like football as your religion almost. That's right. Tell me I. Mean What? What was it about that? Because a there seems to be interestingly some foreshadowing in terms of conviction and devotion and work ethic that showed up there and relentlessness. That has transferred later to July but some curious what were your aspirations back then early on I had this dream of of one day playing college football and I don't know if it was because I was so close to the NC state football team. My Dad was the team doctor for NC state and so I'm I spent so much time there and kind of just idolizing. The players and I love the sport I loved the athletic. I also always really really liked the strategy part of football. There's a as you know there's so much more going on between snaps during snaps than you necessarily can see, and so I just I loved the game and I think is an and now I look back many years later I think that. It also is probably just a reflection of my personality that I locked onto something and yes, there are things about football that I love. But but it was also the thing that I was locked on doing in the goal that I had set and so I just put everything I had into it yet. So your doctor was the teen by for my Dad yes that's your dad. Yes. What did he share any of the experiences because I know it's interesting because you know football has had an interesting reputation and a spotlight over lives really decade from. A medical standpoint I'm curious whether as you were coming up and playing at higher and higher levels, your dad being the doctor who was working a lot of football athletes whether you guys have ever had conversations about that will also my dad actually included me with him for like everything I mean I was on the sidelines with him for Football Games and I was in the locker room with him before games at halftime and after games, and so I I was very much with him throughout and but I have to say that this is like the. Nineties thousands when when we really just didn't know what we know now I mean, we thought concussions were a temporary thing. You just kind of worked through over a few days. We had no sense for for the long term impact them and says, I look back on anatomy that I mean it was almost like we we were playing this sport and we didn't know the risks and. You had aspirations beyond I. Mean Highschool was one became but also it sounds like you had aspirations for sure college. was there an inkling in your mind that said I want this to be my career or was it just Did it never sorta like get to that level? You know I the goal that I had was to play college football that was growing up that was that Was the goal it wasn't to play professionally it wasn't even certain things to do in college. It was just I want to play college football, and as you know that that kind of singular focus than change once I. got there. But really for me, it was played college football. Yeah I mean I'm really curious about what you said also that you kind of obsessed with not just the. Physical aspects of the game but the strategic aspects of it you ended up playing qb playing quarterback, and so it's almost like you're there's a huge leadership aspect to it. There's a lot of complexity and there's a requirement in that position to process vast amounts of information and a lot of complexity that's changing in real time and also not just think about it but make decisions and take action. It's something that I loved about the game was the exactly all those things integrating so much information acting on it and and something I enjoy. But I don't think I've realized just how important those sort of skills would become as I've moved on in dealt with other challenges in life so you end up actually In Georgetown Lane Football, what we actually studying there. So I planned to go when I chose to go to Georgetown one of the main reasons that I wanted to go there because they had a really strong pre med program and I wanted to do a health sciences major because I was really interested in sports medicine it was okay. This is kind of a way to to Meld my interest in medicine with interest in sports and so I was from the very beginning interested in going into medicine. But as you know everything really changed once I got there in. My interest in sports medicine really really shifted. So

Really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you this evening. No Problem Kevin. Thanks so much for having me cool. So he mentioned. Let's you know the people process progress right so we're learning about you. Cover in the people component obviously a lot of process which is great. I'm excited to have that conversation and share that with other people all the processes you've been through in in in the industries that you've been part of and then of course share with folks As we make progress so kind of jumping into it. Where where are you from? And where did you grow up? Yeah so grew up in eastern North Carolina North Carolina's one of those interesting states. That has this island in the middle between the beaches and the mountains and everything in between is a farm country in in SPLAT and So I grew up in the farming country and was driven to build to get into technology and build a way to escape from the lack of of technology and progress in So came up to to the island here in Raleigh and went to College at NC State. That really kick me off in my My Journey Nice did you were you into technology. Maybe a lot. Were you excited about it or into it when you were younger like did you enjoy like Atari intendo or things like that? Did you have kind of a? You know an attraction to that and I'm GONNA be dated. I'm forty six. I may be older than ordering us. No totally totally had had all those things and you know we had. We had dial up internet. Remember getting my first computer and being intrigued by the potential of that and quickly taught myself how to program and That was really the first you know way to to begin. Escaping on started helping people build websites Back when I was a teenager and so that I've always had that sort of that entrepreneur. Draw ever since I was really young and That seems I've carried well for me did you. Did you get into any particular kind of code you know doing websites begging HMO or or just kind of a little bit everything a little bit of everything early on You know heavily into html and you know even before this was before there was really CSS and early into Java script and then quickly into building programs in basic and And then moving into languages like Java as I taught myself more and more about how to program it was really the I in the early days. It was really driven by You know funny enough as I had a an early computer and we had this. We had the dial up internet and I was really one of the things I was really driven by was. Hey you know. We don't have Microsoft word. I really think I could build something like that. That was foolish of me in the early days while ambitious vision ambition. Never Was Never Short on my in my youth man edge and that with Imagine right now what we're going through with dial up all. I don't understand the true pain that that is a you know when you had to have a separate phone line just so you get kicked off right Yeah that I I think I told some of the other day guys. We head this pandemic during the eighties or even the early nineties How much worse it would be and you didn't get your free Internet. Cd in the mail may trying to figure out how to get into AOL right. You're it'd be along in. Would you know what that's also included that bug of doing that making Got TO NC state and so did you major in computer science or similar a major there. Eso majored in computer engineering and computer and electrical engineering because Foolish me I thought I wanted to actually build the parts of the computer that I wanted to program them until I learned that I hated. Physics hunts so that that really kinda pointedly you know. I still went through with the computer engineering and the electrical engineering but was really focused on programming. And the more computer science aspect of it was doing that all throughout college and That was really where I found a guy connected with my partner. These on Long before it was called We started to build a business together. So were you you met at college. Yeah so he had a business that was had relocated from New York and was in Kerry and he was looking for some people to join his team. And this was in. You know I guess. Mid Dot Com crash Here And so you know. I joined in. You know everything plummeted as know. Our customers lost their customers. And so on and we had this great website called Java lobby and We figured out how to sell ads around and that was really the start of it as we built some interesting technology and learned how to publishers in turn that into a building one of the world's largest developer portals Diese wow I mean that's pioneering stuff right and then there weren't as many tools right to be able to that kind of wrote a lot of scripts for you or helped you along. So did you all have to do a lot of you know just a lot of hours in front of the keyboard. And you know mapping and work like that. Yeah this was you know long before you could really you know there were You had to build everything in those days send so there were know the early days of even things like Google ad sense in go blab words in those types of things. But you know we were. We had to build our own community software And so it was. This was even probably before the May have even been before blogs but certainly before blogs became the place that everybody Trying to put their communities. How did you find Many like minded in in school folks at school they are or were you able to against still pretty. I guess earliest days kind of reach out to other where their user communities than that you all could kind of bounce ideas off each other as well. you know. So that's what we provided primarily and so job lobby had been started by my partner as we scanned it. But in those days you know. The the developing world is much more fragmented job lobby really provided a place for developers have an independent voice in an independent community that was separate from the vendors who were really controlling the messaging Peru tools and development. The is in those days Which is is somewhat different than than what you get. These days and open source was what it was. You know what it is now. It was a big deal if he were open source back so everything is sorta come much further much more quickly than it was in those days.
The Alabama Chanin Story
"A leader in the slow fashion movement. Can you describe what slow fashioned is? How do you think about it? Well you know. We first started talking about slow fashion on of as a derivative of the slow food. Newsman I think you know in many ways that That industry is light years ahead of where fashion so people started really looking at the way things were planted and grown much sooner than we did with textiles also I think a lot of what's being done around. Sustainable sustainable fashion is really taking cues from that movement. What made you start your own act. Actually let's just go back. What's your background in in the fashion business and textiles? Obviously this is a really good question. Well I do. I have a degree in what's called environmental design from North Carolina State University. Which sounds very modern today but really it was Degree that was kind of based on the house education so did a double major that today's called the Anti Albert's programs at a degree in Like design fundamentals and Textile design sort of handmade textiles on. And then I have another degree in industrial textile design so at at North Carolina State University. Water the other degrees other than the environmental design. So if you're doing environmental design where he not doing yes so I think the structure. There's a little bit different now when you were there. When I was there it started out you either. Signed into textile design product design graphic design architecture and landscape so environmental design is really cross disciplinarian. Volvos correct it was sort of modeled after the bow house Wheel of learning You know I think. A lot of people know that when the Bell House designers left Germany some of them settled in the mountains of North Carolina in a place called Black Mountain and that was very influential in the in the school of design which is now called the College of design at NC state income. So so how did you get into the fashion business out after he left school? Well that's a really good question I You know I just imagined when I graduated from. Nc State is that was kind of cradle the textile industry. At that time that I would be have been working in Charlotte or you know somewhere around. North Carolina there quite a few factories In a lot of textiles being made in that area while I was in school and I graduated in eighty seven and it was sort of the beginning of the great migration. Or let's call it the the next migration because excels are pretty migratory It's a pretty migratory industry so when I graduated there really had a really hard time finding a job in North Carolina and I You know I just you know back. In those days you had to go to the library. And there are books that listed all the companies that Were working in textiles in New York. And so a sent-off about sixty letters and you know. I got like five responses and I came up to New York for a week and interviews and at the end of the week I got an offer from a company calls US joint junior sportswear NASC- so third floor with I think that the Tagline was do use use you like a jeans and t shirt company. I started out there just as an assistant designer and went from there. And how did you come to the point where you started your own line? You know. It's kind of a roundabout story. After as you I worked for a company called sub studio. That was doing all the manufacturing and samples and India so spent some time going back and forth between New York and India. And after I Stopped doing that job. I actually sort of changed the focus and became a stylus so working on the other side of the camera you know instead of on the design and manufacturing side. I was Doing costume design and So I did that for a decade and During a sabbatical that I was taking my life as a as a stylist. I wound up. You know cutting apart some t shirts and sewing them back together again by hand and a low down half that eventually became a business very crazy story. And what led you to Florence Alabama to have a headquarters for your business model. Florence is my hometown so You know It took me a while to kind of figure out this when I was sowing the t shirts in the beginning that actually what I was doing looked very much like a quilting stitch and so is living in New York on Twenty Third Street and at the Chelsea Hotel and I started going around the garment. Destroy Looking for. You know embroiderers to help me do this. This vision of having these two hundred. One of a kind t-shirts Buying recycle t shirts from the Salvation Army and goodwill's and You know as the joke. I think some of these places thought of as a bag lady would come in with like these backs of recycled t shirts cut up and I wanted them. To put these elaborate embroideries on them and they're like Oh lady no so I mean I remember very clearly the afternoon I was standing on eight and thirty eight And I looked down at one of the pieces. Just kind of dumbfounded on. Why couldn't figure out of getting these made in New York and you know just sort of hit me like a light. Bulb went off like. Oh these. This is a quilting stretch. And if I want to have these made in this way that him sewing them I need to go home where there is still some ladies who had quoted with my grandmother who had this little quilting circle. That would get together once a way to do this. Quilts and thought will F. I go home I could have this made and so the idea was that it was just going to be a one off project. I was going to have these. T shirts made wanted to make this documentary film about old Tom quilting circles so I went home. And you know the the humor in it. Was that You know the little ladies who'd quilted with my grandmother really weren't interested in New York City fashion or you know doing this work. They were talking about the grandkids and planning collards. And you know all the things that they had to do outside of the They're quilting was kind of community service work and so we just ran added random at a newspaper that said part time. Hand sewing and quilting. We got about Again I think you know there were about fifty sixty responses in about twenty of the ladies stock and started doing the hand sewing and then we presented that first collection of Two hundred t shirts during New York fashion week in February of two thousand and one I had a friend who became a partner and then another partner. So we You know it's gun of history. The first person to come to the door was Julie. Bill Hart from Barneys and
