Houston mayor optimistic about power restorations as conditions remain dire

"Conference this afternoon, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner says he's been on the phone with her cot today. The hope is that some power will be restored. You know, sometime today I do know that some households their power have been restored, and I specifically asked. Can you quantify how many people Households. Power will be restored at that time. I didn't get a specific response. But I do here to this point that about 400,000 households. Power will be restored sometime today.

Tennessee Issues Statement on Termination of Nine Employees and Jeremy Pruitt

"Tarrant tennessee. No parting of the ways. No resignation fired. Jeremy pruitt after an internal investigation the chancellor of the university chancellor plowman earlier today the personnel actions. We are announcing. Today are an indication of the gravity of what we've discovered today. Athletic director fomer and i issued termination letters to the following assistant. Football coaches brian. Nita meyer and shelton felt also four members of our on campus football recruiting staff additionally our director and assistant director of football player personnel and finally a football analyst quality control coach. So what are what are Council has told us is it. We're looking at level one and level two violations. I don't know yet yet. Exactly how many or exactly the specifics of it the chancellor earlier today and we have the live coverage here blake top. Mayer has covered the story from the beginning and he joins us early evening from knoxville blake. Good evening thanks for being with us and before we get to specific just describe. What this day has been like in knoxville. Well obviously the big news that we've been waiting for call for a probably at least a month now and in the the question for at least the lack last week or more has been. Is jeremy Going to get outright fired for cause or is he going to get fired with a settlement for reduced by out. I mean i. It felt like inevitable that a coaching change was coming. And we've got the answer today. That pruitt's being fired for cause. Tennessee does not intend to pay him. One cent of his twelve point six million dollar buyout also included in the four. 'cause firings Were systems. Brian eater myron shelton felton in the termination letter to jeremy pruitt tennessee chancellor plowman outlined six four. 'cause provision of jeremy pruitt's contract University believe he violated and of course all stems to be ongoing investigation into sweeping recruiting if violations That have occurred or are believed to have occurred within tennessee's program during pruitt's watch like so many things unpack the chancellor said. She threw her own program under the bus. And i understand the tendency to pile on but having covered many of these before as you have. That was really unprecedented address. That if you don't mind it's obvious that the chancellor is frustrated beyond frustrated with the the amount of malfeasance that i think she sees within the football program. I mean these. I think it's fair to call these sweeping violations. And what she believes they're going to be major violations. stemming from the football program She she mentioned that she was stunned. By both the number of interactions and the number of people involved in the infractions. And so you know. It doesn't leave tennessee in a great position to come out on the other side of this and say you know hey. Nca take it on us there. There really wasn't that much bad going on here. You know you've seen a lot of athletic departments kind. Play that card with the ncaa play hardball with the ncaa and say that they weren't breaking rules. I think tennessee is is quite clearly taking me approach of Of admitting its its mistakes. upfront here Firing the people that believes are responsible for the mistakes and then going forward is going to have to pivot and try to likely self imposed penalties and hope that that can fend off Some of the harshest punishment from from the ncaa but it does leave it in a difficult scenario here as it goes forward not only with the ncaa but as it tries to hire and athletic director and it tries to attract a football coach.

Vols firing Pruitt with cause after investigation

"Butch jones suddenly looking better. Jeremy pruitt gone today. John joining us. These senior sports editor at aol dot com and john. It is great to have you with us. We've talked about the possibility that pruitt would be gone. He is now gone. Fulmer out as well. Your reaction another stunning day on rocky. Top back on again paul. You know. I think that the part that i guess is maybe the most surprising to me is the phil fulmer component Because as you know we talked about the past you know there's obviously been you know. Rumors swirling about tennessee. Possibly moving on from jeremy pruitt for a while. I think a lot of people in the industry thought when that first report came out that tennessee was looking into Potential recruiting violations under pruitt that was signaling that they would like to fire pruitt with 'cause a four forecast which you know they've made very clear that is what they are doing. The former component is a little different because he is such legendary person with that blake department From his time as a football coach and you saw today in that press conference just the these university leaders really going out of their way to praise him and talk about how he's at tennessee. Ledge all those different things. So i think you know fomer kind of getting pushed aside Calling it a retirement. But i think there's a little more to that is probably the most interesting component of this to me because now it means you not only have to fire new. Find a new football coach but you also have to find a new ad. Do you think john. It was the contract extension. That former gave jeremy pruitt attorney was the final tipping point for him. I would imagine it's probably a lot of different you components to it because you know hey we have to remember this. Was you know fomer higher to begin with you know as that whole crazy. Coaching search point out and former becomes. Ad then hires jeremy pruitt. I also think. I mean if you were watching that press conference today paul. You know felt like you know so. It's still in some ways defending pruitt. They're asking him about how pruitt would be remembered and he talks about how you know recruiting had been good Which is obviously ironic considering that they fired him in part because of recruiting violations and fired nine people in total also tied the recruiting department But also just the way that he was talking about how pro had rebuilt relationships and all these different things it felt like to me at least that former was not out on pruitt as a higher to that point. So you know part of it could have been simply that you feel wasn't ready to move on from pruitt and it s part became what we're gonna make just wholesale changes here and i think if you remember paul you know one of the reasons why earlier in the year before we knew about all these recruiting violations. I was always a little skeptical. Pruitt getting fired in part because it would reflect poorly on former. And i didn't think four would want to move on from his higher Like you said he just gave an extension to after only three seasons as the head coach

This is the daily tech news for friday january. Eighth twenty twenty. One in los angeles on tom. Merit and from studio redwood on sarah lane from studio colorado. I'm shannon morris drawn the top tech stories in cleveland. I'm lynn per nine. The show's producer. Roger j we were just talking about a cas product that makes you ice cream and ninety seconds whenever you wanted and why roger never cries wider conversation join our expanded show. Good day internet at patriotair dot com slash dpd s. Let's start with a few things you should know. Amazon has discontinued its prime pantry. Grocery and household item service products previously available in pantry will now be available like any other products on amazon. So it's not going away to gather but the service itself prime pantry launched in twenty fourteen offering reduced shipping on up to forty five pounds of household goods for a monthly fee. Amazon node vied prime pant pantry subscribers about the closure in december and then issued refunds the. Uk's competition and markets authority launched an investigation into google's privacy sandbox. That would block third party. Cookies in chrome regulator received complaints from the marketers for an open web coalition saying the plan would abuse google's dominant position in online advertising. So the investigations going to evaluate. If the privacy sandbox changes would concentrate advertising spending market share with google samsung launched the galaxy chromebook to a cheaper version of the galaxy chromebook at launched last year so instead of four k it has a ten eighty p lcd screen with less storage fewer cameras less ram. It's also heavier and thicker overall but it also now starts at five hundred forty nine dollars instead of one thousand dollars. That has a thirteen point. Three inch nineteen twenty by ten eight hundred sixteen nine. Lcd touchscreen with the dual core intel seller on five twenty five you upgradable to an intel core. I three ten ten eleven ten one. one zero. You eight gigs. Ram and one hundred twenty five gigs of storage for six hundred ninety nine dollars a shortage of semiconductors affecting automakers. Volkswagen said last month that they needed to adjust first-quarter manufacturing plans around the globe because of the shortage. Now honda says it will cut domestic output by about four thousand cars this month at one of its factories in japan nissan is adjusting production numbers for its note hatchback model and ford has moved up previously planned downtime at a kentucky plant for its sport utility vehicle factory to the jin chips all right. Well we're talking about cars. Let's talk about the the apple car. Yeah a lot of rumors as of late will really over the last few years. But but but the rumors had resurfaced recently and hyundais. Now talking to apple about kerr's so says the company hyundai representative told cnbc quotes. We understand that apple isn't discussion with a variety of global automakers including hyundai motor as the discussion is at its early stage. Nothing has been decided. Korean economic daily said that apple suggested the arrangements and hundred was reviewing the terms that involved e production and also battery development hyundai has had his own battery platform called e. g. m. p. going into production later this year. So might be saying what you're doing. Reuters sources say that apple would like to produce a passenger vehicle by twenty twenty four however might not be that date bloomberg's mark gurman reports in thomas e. v. from apple is five to seven years away and michio recently said he wouldn't be surprised if it takes until twenty twenty eight. Yes what's probably going on. Here is apple and i think this significant part has decided to start investigating how they would build. Whatever it is. They're going to build whether it's a whole car or an integrated platform and they're going to different manufacturers and parts suppliers and folks like magna including hyundai. And saying what are you got. How can you help us with this. And is a great company for this because they make parts they make systems. They make full cars. There's all kinds of services in the conday company that could play a part with apple so it may not be. That apple knows what they want from hyundai. It may just be that they're going and saying hey let's talk. You do a lot of the kinds of things that we think we're going to need. I'm pretty excited about this. I just got my first hyundai ever this year and my perception of this story was weight but hyundai currently uses android auto and a lot of their their cars. So i would love to see. How apple would integrate Hyundai's current technologies into something that is very useful for that apple ecosystem not just looking at e itself but also the The the systems inside of it the controls in how they would manage that four a driver and a passenger in the car. Yeah i mean. I think that's one of the big questions that i have is okay. Let's say let's say it's hyundai that that applet ended up working with with clearly not set in stone at least from what we know at this point. But let's say it's the companies for kicks. Let's imagine that that's what it is. Yeah it is. It is an apple car that hyundai produces a lot of parts for the way that works with lots of other companies to produce other hardware for apple. I mean that that's the loftiest kind of goal that we're looking at and maybe that would take till twenty twenty eight at you know if if apple was lucky. I think it probably has more to do with like you said shannon not that you know android auto wouldn't still be prevalent in a lot of passenger vehicles but maybe at some sort of it's a special relationship. It's it's a special kind of os inside a car that is supposed to you. Know i don't know move some merch because What apple is providing on the software side is is. Is that much more interesting. I really don't know if you look at that. Bloomberg article mark gurman sources are saying that Tesla people that apple has hired are working on things like interior exterior. Drive train stereo. Desist the kinds of things. You need when you're building a car not carting a software platform so then the question becomes is it the apple car period. Maybe hendaye makes it. Maybe somebody else makes it. And you know they'll figure out how to distribute it or is it the apple car by sunday and you go to hyundai dealership to buy it the way you went to an. At and t. store to an apple iphone but it's really apples car in cooperation with sunday. Are there multiple partners. I mean that's all the kind of stuff we're waiting to see but it really does feel like we have gotten to the point where this is no longer just yeah. They're working on project titan. They don't know what they're gonna do to. They have an idea. It's more than just software and they're working out the details. Maybe they don't even know that yet. Well i'm interested to see what happens but we also have some other news. Security among the systems impacted by the solar winds attack is the electron filing system. Used by the us federal courts at investigation is underway to determine if confidentiality of documents filed with the courts was breached and as a result starting wednesday confidential documents filed with the courts will be stored on standalone systems. Not uploaded big difference so these are documents sealed from public access because they contain sensitive information like investigative techniques identities of informants and a lot more other. Us federal agencies affected included the justice department the state treasury and energy departments as well solar winds has engaged. The krebs stay most security consulting group to help deal with this attack. That firm was formed by alex. Stamos the former chief security officer at yahoo and facebook and chris krebs the former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency or sisa. So krebs was fired last month. By the president after finding no evidence of with voting systems in the twenty twenty election. Yeah stamos first of all brilliant for those two to team up and smart for solar winds to engage them for what they say is Helping with transparency with companies that are affected But this we we are not done finding out how bad this is. There are reports that there may have been other ways that this whoever is behind this intruded beyond just solar winds. They're finding evidence of that. They have not been able to root out the people that got into this vulnerability from all systems yet. They're still in there in a lot of cases. And you know this. This kind of confidential information is exactly the kind of thing you fear that someone would get intruding into a government system informants investigative techniques that you can now learn from to evade being prosecuted or caught yourself. That's that's crown jewel type stuff it's it's very interesting. In fact krebs spoke on record saying that it could potentially take years to figure out how deep the solar winds attack actually went and how many different kinds of infrastructure. You know brands and everything that it might have affected so this is not something. That's going to die anytime soon. I'm glad that they are reaching out. Craig's and stay most though because that i agree with you tom. It's excellent. excellent team roku made a few interesting announcements roku says. Npd data shows that the roku s was the top selling smarter operating system in the us and canada in two thousand twenty thirty one percent market share in canada. Thirty eight percent in the united states That's pushed the samsung's tizen number two. At least we don't actually know samsung's ties and was number. One in two thousand nineteen also announced a wireless soundbar reference design that uses wifi for its roku. Tv ready program remember. Last year roku announced the program which had a designed for wired. Sound bars. The program includes tcl. Pokemon on an element has just announced. They'll join as well with two point. Two point one ready sound bars roku tv ready to expand internationally later this year as well. But here's the big roku news roku has agreed to acquire exclusive global distribution rights to more than seventy five Shows documentaries some of which had not been released before qube shutdown. So there'll be some new stuff that nobody's ever seen after their exclusivity deal expires. That'll happen in a bit more than a year. Depending on the show roku will still have the rights to show the content just not exclusively until thousand twenty seven the content will have to be presented in original increments of ten minutes or less. The deal doesn't let them stitch it altogether. The content will be added to the more than forty thousand movies and tv shows already available. In the roku channel shows include from Be anyway punked. Murder house. Flip and dummy which stars anna kendrick. I never watched the new punk. I heard had its moments. The whole qube thing. It's really interesting to me because it was sort of like. It crashed and burned so quickly. And there's a lotta shot and friday around folks in the industry about it. And i think that's not because qube was doing things wrong. It was because the company had raised so much money time. Because you know. They had meg whitman. Jeffrey katzenberg who are you know. Heavy hitters and there was a little bit of like you are being to embassies and therefore you shall fail. The company did fail and the idea that some creators will have a new life on another platform shows. That just don't even saw but people still worked on. And maybe you're really good. I think this this makes a lotta sense and good for roku to get exclusivity for at least a few years so does roku have to wait at all in order to start showing this content or can happen immediately. I don't know when the start date. Whenever the deal is you know goes into effect. Then they'll immediately be able to to show it so you know within a month or so it would be my guess anyway but no they. They don't have once. The deal is actually in effect. They don't have to wait. What's going on here. is that the baby. Production companies own the rights to their own stuff but they have a two year exclusive for each one of their shows with qube and those two year exclusives are now being transferred to roku so roka will be able to have the exclusive for the remainder of whatever. The period was with quick. That's why it's more a year. Exclusively goes away then they still have the right to show it until twenty twenty seven but the production companies that made it can now start shopping at around to other places as well so the production companies do hold the content and remember this is just the content. Qube is still in a over. Its turnstile technology which is holding it up from selling its technology and i would expect once it resolves that lawsuit should resolve it in a way that they still hold their technology. They'll sell that to so this isn't the last you're going to hear could be selling off a part of it. I would imagine. Gotcha yeah that whole. The whole technology part of qube was again was an ambitious thing that was released at a very inopportune time in twenty twenty when everyone was like. We're just sitting at home like we don't need this like mobile phone technology. It's like cool that you can shifted around but you can't even cast thing. I mean the company did fix that pretty soon after allow about she was just. I mean it's just did. The timing couldn't be worse but that technology when you think of it in a variety of other form factors such as monitors that swivel talked about some of those yesterday. I don't know that qube or tiktok or snapchat or all of the stuff where we're like. Oh yeah that's the. That's the portrait view. Rather than landscape view. That works for certain apps is is is all that this is four. I think there's more to it So we'll see what happens and there's patents and things that are always valuable because you can use those to extract some concessions and money and stuff. So yeah expect that all to come join the conversation in our discord which you can join by linking to a patriotic. Can't get in there and talk about your favourite qube shows with all the other discord folks. Just lincoln to your patriotic out at patriotair dot com slash. Dpd s all right shannon. How do you clone a security key. Well i i will say please do not stop using your security keys because of this story i will explain it. Researchers from ninja lab published a paper on thursday showing how you could clone a google tightened security gate this is a two factor authentication key which is very similar to a you. Be key that you have to plug in or tap in order to access an account after putting in your username or your password credentials. Were both so in order to pull off the clone. You would need physical access to the key for about ten hours. Sometimes a minimum of ten hours just kind of depends on how good you are at this. About twelve thousand dollars worth of equipment physical equipment and custom software and some advanced skills in electrical engineering and cryptography as well. So you have to remove the chip and then take measurements of it at a being registered on each account that you went to attack the measurements observe electro magnetic radiation as the chip generates digital signatures that let the attacker slowly deduced the private key so measurements take about six hours per account. That's not including taking apart. The original tighten security key putting it back together. Then you need to seal the chip back into its case. You also need the targets password in order for this to work. So the reason it works is because of vulnerability in the security hardware chip residing within the google titan key and that is called an eighty seven hundred x by this company called. Xp if it's exploited in attacker could grab the elliptic curve cryptographic private key for the account and the same chip is actually found in other two factor. Authentication physical tokens as well like There's a ubiquity that it's found in but chances of attack or very very minimal given the scope of the attack so if you do all of this without the target ever noticing then they would never duplicated key but again given the scope given how much it costs and everything behind the scenes probably when it happened to normal user. The point of these security keys being the best way to use For two factor. Is that you can't even get at your private key right you. Nobody has to be able to get in there like the chip. Just doesn't make it available so the fact that they were able to get in there and get it is huge. You know the fact that they were able to do this is significant. But i mean if you're not a target of an advanced persistent threat. You don't need to worry about this. No one's going to go to the trouble to do this. And even if you're a target. I would guess shannon that most of them probably would be able to notice if someone took their key for ten hours or more you. You likely likely would especially since a lot of people with hardware tokens like google titan will stick them on a on their keychain for example like with their house keys or whatever wherever they keep all those personal physical devices that they don't want lost or stolen they keep them all on engaging so if somebody was to take one of these out of your purse out of your gym locker wherever it might be and remove it for like ten hour street minimum. You would likely know that this would have happened. the neat thing about these chips inside of these. Google tightened security keys. And any other cryptographic hardware tokens like these is that. Even the manufacturer doesn't know the private key so the fact that they were able to find vulnerability on these specific chipsets is really interesting. And i think that's the important bit of that. Is is even though the google titan like the end all be all of really excellent. Two factor authentication. There's always. The potential that vulnerabilities can be found. So i'm happy that this research came out. It's so fascinating and it's so interesting in this means that an x. p. and other security chipset manufacturers that sell these teeny tiny chips to google or whoever the company might be They can build on this. They can research and figure out what the next version of their chipset needs to entail in order to not be vulnerable to this again in the future. Yeah i mean this is really a good security story right. We finally figured out because there's always a way right. We finally figured out the way you get the private key out of a security key and guess what it's really hard takes a long time and now that we know it we can make it even harder and hopefully you know push that barrier out even further and even if somebody did have time to do this and you didn't notice i was reading the paper because i'm a huge nerd and they go as far as using fuming fuming nitric acid in order to get like melt the epoxy off of the original google titan. How are you going to put that back together. In order for somebody to not notice like there's a lot of intricacies with this attack in order for it to actually be pulled off so chances are very very slim that somebody would be able to pull off so again as i said at the very beginning. Don't stop using your google tightened security key if you have one keep using it because chances are you would never be attacked with this. Just just know if you haven't seen it in ten hours look together strange. This is going to be in a movie though. I'm calling that shot right now. We're gonna we're gonna see this movie. Where like i hope so. Somebody goes into surgery and they take his key and they go out and do all this and they slip it back in because ten hours later. He wakes up from anesthesia on something like that. I just hope they talked to the researchers so they actually show it off right. Yeah Sony tv and audio announcements Starting with details for its own tv lineup. Sticking with lead ravi x four k and k. Tv's will support four k at one hundred twenty hertz variable refresh rate vr as well as a l l m low latency mode and e arc. These are all things that are important. If you've got a ps five now you've got sony. Tv they can go. That sony also has an improved a chip that is going to improve the picture and sound positioning. So it aligns with what you see on the screen. Sony's master series. Tv's will come with a sensor that adjusts white balanced immense. Your ambiente color temp. You don't have to do anything they'll just do it. Also an aluminum heat shield. That will make for brighter. All the sets will support. Hdmi two point one. Another big one for ps five dolby vision hdr angle tv. Sony also announced. It's three hundred sixty reality audio platform if you're not familiar with three hundred sixty degree audio places instruments and vocals in a virtual sound field around your head but using just the one speaker so you can do this in an amazon echo or google. Home sony will start streaming video with three sixty audio later this year. Starting with concert from zara larsson on january eleventh. And somebody's gonna make speakers that support this. It'll be may supported by other speakers as well. But sony is going to put out the are five thousand and three thousand They've got that dark cloth. Surface that all these speakers seem to have these days with either bronze or silver accents. Work with google and amazon assistance and can connect to select sony abroad via. Tv's as well as supporting wi fi bluetooth. Spotify connect in google cast. The speakers do automated calibration to the room. They're in donut. The press a button for that. Either and we'll simulate three hundred sixty degree audio for stereo tracks as well. The five thousand cost five hundred pounds or five hundred ninety nine euros no. Us price yet on the three thousand two hundred eighty pounds. Three hundred fifty nine euros. This seems this. Seems like it's shaping up to be one of the trends. Is this the sort of three hundred sixty degree audio while you're listening to your black bank and it's just one speaker or potentially a couple of speakers ativan. Maybe yeah yeah already supported. Yeah there's less of kind of like What do i have to do. Five point one surround or at least get a couple of speakers and make them a stereo pair type thing. I really haven't heard this in. I don't know. I used to hang out at magnolia at best. Buy all the time. And just like geek out on stuff like this. of course. this technology wasn't around at the time. But it's really come on. Let's turn on some stuff and see the speakers. Do it works well. Then that's awesome my first reaction because i got rid of my kind of pants speakers some years ago because friend of mine needed them more than i did and i didn't have room in my apartment but i miss that i'm also an a. A permanent now that's smaller and kind of has a lot of weird angles and i find audio bounces off walls in wiz. That wouldn't if it was more of a square box broom So i'm not sure that i'm the perfect target market for this. You're the you're the one puts this through its paces and sees if it really works. Yeah if i could actually work as advertised again with some funny angles in a big old frame. Then i'm i'm really into this and i've always been. I don't have a sony. Tv currently sorry zony. But i was abroad. Bravi a person for years. Nears i think what the new bravi line is coming out with. Looks really nice. And i mean not totally in the market for a new tv. But i like the fact that i might get a new sony again paired up with a sony speaker. You got three six. Yeah already got all this stuff. It's going to be a messed anyway. You slice it. But i like. I like this to be sixty reality audio platform. What would you have set up in your house. I was straight up going to mention sonos because if if it doesn't have the connectability to be able to work with all of my other platforms that currently have invested in. Then chances are i wouldn't buy it. So i do have sono says in my house and i do have some issues connecting those with other speakers in the household to like like my google hub for example so the fact that this works with google and amazon assistant the speaker specifically The audio speakers. I think that's pretty cool. I like that. They are bringing that in and i am interested because i do live in a household. That has very high ceilings. How this would work in that kind of environment. So yeah. I'm very interested in the audio aspect. Well you might also be interested in what colour has come out. Oh yes the folks who make things like toilets and and sinks and lots of appliances however. Been a real. Cas mainstay for the last few years for some cool innovations and this year is no different. Even though we're not in vegas koehler has a new smart bathtub called the stillness bath. That lets you use an app or use your voice using google or amazon's assistance to fill up the water or perhaps set the mood by changing the color of the lights around the tab or even add some fog. You know you wanna kind of pretend like you're in the then present routines also turn on features in a certain orders if you wanna get kind of creative. that's cool. Yeah the certain amount of limitations with the base model and the base model is not cheap so temperature and depth control models alone will cost around eight thousand six hundred ninety eight dollars. That's right it's almost nine thousand dollar bathtub. If you want the experience tower that lets you activate fog and aromatherapy. That will run you just over ten thousand dollars. Both models are available in july. There are real things and if you want the version with lights and floor grades for overflow fifteen thousand nine hundred ninety eight dollars available. This october signed me off. I won't be buying those. Nope not even a little bit but we could have taken a bath at s in the new in the pre show roger was like. Why would you want fog. It's like this. Why does anyone want to be on. Yeah racist luxury suites in hotels for sure as well as apple's houses sure yeah something well. Yeah it's it's that like hey look at what my bath can do people go. Wow very fancy and then you know ten years from now will be like remember when we thought it was fancied to talk to your bathtub so that it would start filling up without touching it but Yeah it's it's somewhat silly because of the price. But i'm not really much of a bath person but they do look very nice all right. Let's check out the mail bag but ads do it. Nick wrote in with a pronunciation. Ramps own neck. You are not alone he says. Ac's rog is an initial list. Because it's our og like fbi or cia. People say ron yet. They're lower end gaming brand tough not initially them. It's an acronym like scuba or produce you f but pronounced off. It's like ace's can't make up their name minds. Then there's strict which is our subbrand strikes as a word it's a completely nonsensical made up word. But it's a word and you pronounce it as such nick as honestly as somebody. That buys a lot of hardware. Because i've rarely had a bad experience with them over the past twenty years. I am baffled by some branding decisions. The one the bugs me. The most is the strict subbrand. Sometimes acis makes the tricks products. The high end product in the product stock yet other times. It's a mid range product. Would it be too much to ask for consistency and product. Branding twenty twenty one. Yes apparently apparently we feel your pain. Nick i love the dichter's just like i just need to vent you guys.

Matt Stinchcomb previews Vanderbilt/Tennessee and talks about Sarah Fuller

"Seems like we've talked about tennessee a few times this year and i'm really interested in your view of them and Especially you know trying to shalva season with vanderbilt tomorrow. Am the next week. The schedules obviously been rearranged a little bit. Where are they right now. Bad spot Lots of season in a game vs vanderbilt non place you want to be. If you're tennessee. Football program your rewind all the way to the beginning of the season writing that winning streak and then getting a victory vs south carolina and then going on the road and putting it on missouri. I mean running the football right down their throat to the point where i think it changed. Who missouri was defensively. Going forward made him a better football team kind of steeled their resolve not to have that happen again because tennessee almost two hundred forty seven rushing yards on them in that football game. It's been the same sense. I will have to say that most people. I think observing the program even outside of the quarterback position and the circumstances that all teams have found themselves in this year. This has been really disappointing year for tennessee football. They've got two more shots at. It is a very short handed vanderbilt. Football program could get on the field georgia. It'll be interesting to see if tennessee can put together a convincing performance versus their in state conference member i. i wouldn't even call it. A rival per se for tennessee's perspective although Tennessee vanderbilt had some success versus the balls in recent years. Easy man on talk shows to blame coaches but there is obviously more to it. But as you look at jeremy pruitt and his staff. I'm curious how you would evaluate or analyze some of the decisions especially at quarterback because a lot of people feel like jeremy was was really slow to make a change. Yeah quarterbacks been an interesting adventure for tennessee to say. The least. I mean even last time out versus the florida gators harrison bailey. Obviously getting out there and then comes out of the game briefly. Brian our goes in but then. Jt shrout finishes finishes the game. We haven't seen a lot of either one of those guys. Jt shroud got in earlier. In the season jarod guarantee no Start out rough to say the least versus kentucky and what ended up being a blowout loss at the hands of the wildcats at home. Jt shrout through pass for an interception in that one football game and then to see him late last week and had some success in two series versus the florida gators. But it's it's been kind of all over the place at the quarterback position and largely been that way for two seasons. Really paul when you think about the way. They had to manage the quarterback position last year. And i would argue masterfully. Really given where. Jerry guarantee no been mentally after the gulf called. Qb sneak versus alabama. When tennessee was still very much in that football game ends up going the other direction the idea that they were able to still salvage the back. End of that season was was really impressive from a coaching standpoint. This season the quarterback position has remained an issue to say the least and the lack of consistency and even in the past couple of weeks in harrisonburg getting his first start versus florida a week ago. It's still not a known commodity. We'll talk to tennessee later on today. We've not visited with him yet to find out what exactly can expect to get their quarterback tomorrow versus the commodores one program with a six game losing streak the other with a nine game. I mean i guess there is only. There is some light at the end of the tunnel. That one team has to win. But i mean this. This is a mess. Matt i realize this late in the year and it's a stranger at that but on the other side of vanderbilt. We all know the story pretty well. The coaching change the future unknown. Give us give us your assessment of of where they are right now with with a chance to at least be tennessee. That would that would be big. It'd be huge And it's still going to be an uphill climb. I mean you look at their roster. There's no way they've got fifty scholarship players available in this football game. They're choosing to play the game. It's admirable because vanderbilt different. I think it's well documented that they're different from any of the other member institutions southeastern eastern conference but none more so than in the area of roster roster management in a year where everyone is incredibly lean. This point in time memorable would be lean anyway. Even in regular circumstances they don't have a ton of walk on. There's not a lot of kids lining up to pay that tuition to pay full freight and have that academic rigor. Oh and by the way all week you get a practice. Football games probably never see the field and likely watch. Your teammates get beat down. It's just something that a lot of people are signing up for. They don't have a lot of bodies they don't have a lot of kids to even be able to practice. So it's admirable the vanderbilt's even able to take the field tomorrow. I'll little bit hesitant to say the least. We had them last week in a would be game vs. Georgia got cancelled at noon on friday. It does appear that this game's going to get. Its admirable just enough that the commodores are going to be able to take. The field. Looked like they were turning a corner. Looked like they were going to play better. Football down the stretch. Mississippi state had an opportunity to win. Were undone by turnovers. Still a young quarterback and true freshman kin seals but there last time out versus missouri was a discouraging performance to say the least in. It'll be interesting to see what they're able to cobble together with the personnel. They have available. And what could be their final game of the season if they're not able to get back out there versus georgia we from them. What is the sarah fuller situation for. Tomorrow's best you know as we understand it She will be kicking in football game. We think extra points. is probably the likelihood of win. We will expect to see her in the contest tomorrow but she is available for place kicking duties and it seems as if the point after attempt is the most likelihood most area of likelihood that we could see on the field of play tomorrow. You know there's so much conversation about that. And and i think most reasonable people smiled and we're happy and and celebrated it but you know we both grew up in the south and there are certainly narrow views of what happened. I'm curious just to somebody who played this game at the highest level is also reasonable your thoughts on when it happened. And what you'll see you tomorrow. Yeah you know as a father of daughters the whole thing. The more opportunities The better in that regard. I will say that circumstances in many ways. I don't wanna say forced but created the opportunity for this to have happened in credit sarah fuller for wanting to take advantage of that. I do think that you know the attention that it still garnering. The fact that things have seemingly settled down around the fact that there's a female kicker in a power five game is only help not only her ability to contribute with that football team but the team in general because as we know it is unique and can be a distinct distraction in some ways. A positive distraction but distraction nonetheless and from what we gather and it makes sense that because some time has passed. And maybe perhaps because vanderbilt didn't take the field last week vs georgia. The things have kind of settled down and interestingly and rather quickly surf or has assimilated into that football team and program not an easy thing to do late in the year But i think that speaks to some of the positive elements of this as much as anything else squib make a field goal point after was the fact that she is seemingly a member of the football team and not a novelty. I think that's really where the progress would ultimately be made the fact that so much attention has been garnered around it. That's fine for the first time but if progress is actually being made and if we're opening up our eyes and broadening our rises and just playing the best potential players in these capacities then at some point in time it shouldn't be a novelty to just be something that should be expected. We're not there yet. That's not the case but we're closer this week than we were two weeks ago when she first took the field versus missouri

Why Meditation is Not About Stopping Your Thoughts

Broken Brain with Dhru Purohit

Why Meditation is Not About Stopping Your Thoughts

"Coming, up on this week's mini episode of the broken brain podcasts. The reason you're meditating is for the other. Twenty three hours or twenty three and a half hours in your day. You're not meditating for that moment. That's not where the dividends show up in your life. I've worn them drew pruitt host of the broken brain podcast. If there was something, you do every to boost your focus and productivity feel energized, reduce stress sleep better. Maintain a positive outlook and support Paul by health. Wouldn't you do it? In this week's mini episode of the podcast I, speak with Megan Monahan Emily Fletcher and Light Watkins all three of my dear friends about the common myths about meditation, the Science of Meditation and how it impacts the brain and how to bring meditation into your life in a practical and tangible way. Let's listen in starting with my interview with my dear friend Megan Monahan a certified choper meditation teacher and author of don't hate meditate. So the number one thing that I hear all of you come up to me or you spiritually slide into my DM's and you think that you're going to get out of meditating by saying to. To, me, He Meghan I try to meditate I. tried to start my thoughts. I try to silence. My mind just can't do it. So saying, but I can't do it and and I will happily retort with as long as you have a pulse, you're going to have thoughts. Meditation is not about stopping your thoughts and silencing your mind I. Don't know who created that sound bite, but it has just been haunting all of teachers for ever and ever and ever at this point. So be really okay with the fact that you're going to have thoughts meditation I like to say that meditation is it's almost like eavesdropping. So. If you can recall a time when you are in public member when that happened and we would be overhearing a conversation, maybe you're in a restaurant, maybe you're on a training maybe out in the world and you overhear a conversation most of the time you're not going to jump into a strangers conversation and input your thoughts, right? Because that would be strange. That's kind of like what meditation is meditation is when you get to start taking a step back and just eavesdropping. Eavesdropping on the activity eavesdropping on your own boss eavesdropping on sounds that you can hear or physical sensations in your body, and it's just creating space between you and that activity and practicing doing that while you're meditating and then taking that sort of mental strength that awareness outside of meditation and putting that into practice when you're in your waking state meditations, not about stopping your thoughts number. One thing that I hear. So if that's your excuse, sorry, you have to meditate. The other people say to me a lot and it will happen after class or after with client or whatever it is. They'll say, oh, that was a really good one and I always stop them. And and just reframed not a bit because I. Think we have this expectation that. That it should feel really relaxing that it should that we should have some insight that we should maybe have some Aha moment that maybe we have some clarity navy. We feel a deep sense of stillness that we had access to all of a sudden there. These very cool meditation, need very technical term moments that you can have when you meditate and it's cool when those happen. If any of those things, I just described show up if you see colors if you. Feel a connection to yourself. That's really dope and those meditations are really fun. But that meditation is just as good as the meditation. I did this morning where my fire alarm went off in the middle there. Equally good one was just more fun. When was more enjoyable. The only bad meditation is the one that you don't do. So I think the other the other myth that I would kind of dispel as that nothing needs to happen for it to work in the moment, you just have to do it not on link working out. You know if I'm if I go out for a run, there will be days when when I am running. Running in two minutes in, it feels like I have never run before in my life, and it's so laborious and meaningful, and then I have the days where I feel like I could run marathons on all of those runs were equally beneficial. I just liked one of them were. So basically advocating for the removal of judgment on a medication. Yes. Like the expectation because what happens so to just push it a little bit what happens when we do say that was a good one or somebody says, oh. Man I really knew that that was a good one. What's the fear or what's the concern when somebody judges a meditation as good or bad? So number one, I think with any kind of judgment. It stops being a neutral place for you and I think one of the biggest blessings of meditation is that it's this kind of neutral landscape that you get to rest, and so I think if you have an expectation is already a sense of meaning that you're applying to it that isn't going to serve you and and I think you've set yourself up. Up to two, almost have an out which I'm not a fan of I. Think we should all meditate every day for the rest of our lives. So if you have a string of meditations where it doesn't feel great, you're kind of Ansi or where you hear the leaf blower every time or where the dog is bothering you. Then all of a sudden. Oh, it's not going. Well, I'm gonNA stop doing

What will out-of-work Americans do without that extra $600 per week?

What will out-of-work Americans do without that extra $600 per week?

"We begin this week at the end of July in a year. Ain't none of us. GonNa Forget by pointing out the enduring reality of vis economy, thirty two and a half million Americans aren't working. They are trying to get by on expanded federal unemployment benefits expanded in who can get him gig workers, the self-employed people who can't go to work because school is closed, or because somebody in their household is sick. They all get them. Those benefits are also expanded in how much people can get the extra six hundred dollars a week? You've been hearing so much about here and elsewhere. You've also been hearing. I'm sure that the last of those checks go out in like a week. Unless Congress and the White House decide to do something. Marketplace's Mitchell Hartman gets is going. Back, in March Austin, Texas was gearing up for the annual south by southwest. Festival and everyone theater folks waiters, bartenders car share drivers was about to be working round the clock for a whole month, and making a significant chunk of their annual pay, then covid nineteen hit, the city announced that was going to be shut down. It just pulled the plug out from under every day Stephen Pruitt's lighting, designer and videography. videography he had gigs setup for south by southwest, and then he was going to China with Texas, tap dance troupe, instead myself and everyone else just lost every job that we've had before the pandemic. He'd been out of luck. Freelance workers aren't typically eligible for jobless benefits. But Washington made them eligible and added six hundred dollars. A week to everybody's on employment checks. It's been the difference between you know my rant. Versus, not if Washington doesn't extend the six hundred dollar week, pandemic payments come August pruitt will be getting a Texas sized unemployment check of two hundred a week. Like at that point. I'm probably still paying my rent, but I may have to talk to my bank about Can I defer my car loan? Okay? I can still survive, but now I'm going to be figuring out how to prioritize which bills to. To pay all over the country, people in states with comparatively low jobless benefits like taxes will face a fifty to seventy five percent. Pay Cut at a time when getting a new job isn't necessarily easy or safe. Says Andrew Staedtler at the century. Foundation, and that means people worried about losing their housing having to move in with relatives. You're not really be able to get by on unemployment benefits. Staedtler says. The federal supplement will suck twenty five billion dollars a week out of the economy. Money people spend right away on essentials. Rent food transportation. The money is also keeping some small businesses alive like an assemblies bakery in Kansas City. where she is cooked server and businessmen. When the state shutdown she got on pandemic on employment. It's gone towards shop expenses I. Mean I still have to pay rent? Even when I'm close and utilities, and all that I haven't had any revenue really when the state re opened, she was no longer eligible for unemployment, so she reopened fully masked takeout only and then Monday I woke up with flu symptoms and went to the doctor I'm presumptive positives shows quarantining now and her shop. Shop is closed if she doesn't start getting unemployment payments soon. She's not sure she'll be able to reopen. I'm Mitchell Hartman for marketplace exactly how much spending power that extra six hundred bucks gets. It varies a whole lot of course depending on where you are colleagues at the APM. Research labs of in Saint Paul of built an interactive map that will give you some sense of it. You can check that out at marketplace dot ord. Should say here by the way that there are talks said on an economic package tomorrow up on Capitol Hill. The GOP wants to hold it to a trillion. Democrats in the House already passed a at three and a half trillion. Those obviously are the starting

I'm drew PRUITT and each week. My team and I bring on a new guest who we think can help you improve your brain health feel better and most importantly live more. This week's guest is Kamal. Ravi Gump Kamal is the author of love. Yourself like your life depends on it. He's meditated with monks in Himalayas. We got to hear about that served as a army. Infantry soldier and Co founded several companies and venture capital firm in Silicon Valley. Come all. I've been looking forward to this interview. Thanks for coming on the PODCAST. Thanks for having me man. I kick off with a quote that I came across years ago and I just thought perfect when I was giving your book by Gideon Gideon while Harper Winer. Yeah When he had mentioned you and then another mutual friend mentioned it and I started flipping through the book. I thought of this quote by CS Lewis. Success hardships prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary life interesting. That's going and while he was a wise man he was a wise man so I want to kick it off by starting from the beginning. You Open Up Your Book and you talk about in two thousand eleven. The company that you spent three years of your life building and all of your money went under set the stage for us at the beginning. Okay so the the genus. This book is actually. This is not a book. Set out to write. You know that people like I'm going to write this book. This was never a book to write. It came out of an experience. That was very transformative for me where I've been in Silicon Valley building startups building companies at Dunwell and the last company. I was building At self-funded if over three and a half years and then took on funding. Because I'd run out of money you know. Billing tech companies not cheap right for for years and And the whole thing blew up and I lost everything you know which in hindsight you you remember. I remember now. Look Ninety something percent star tech startups fail but when is yours and all your money you ego your personality is self worth all of us wrapped up in it. I I it. Blew up on with it and and I was in a really dark place and you know the other things happening in life to at the time it was almost like we had like Salami. I'll just happened at the same time and I was in a very dark place in one night. I just was like okay. I can't do this anymore. I gotta get out of this place or die trying. I cannot be here and and it was like this this intense moment of like saying. I can't do this anymore. Can't be here anymore in this place. This does this darkness depression. Whatever you WANNA call it and I walked over to my journal and my on my desk and I wrote down something to myself I and I you know you should write notes to myself but this this time. Something from somewhere deep I wrote a vow to myself and it was a vow Listen the book You know I'm GonNa Paraphrase but it was avowed alum myself and I don't know where that came from. I wasn't sitting on thinking you know what I need. Another makeup news failed. I need to love myself that I wasn't thinking that at all. I don't know whether we came from like somewhere. Deep Right. It was like one of those pure moments of life. We just come through something deep. I did recognize that. And it was a vow as a full on commitment to myself. And so I'm a big believer keeping your commitments that you made from the heart and this was a pure from the heart to myself and so I had to keep it except I didn't know how and said okay. I'm GonNa work on this. I started because I nothing else to do. My Company of failed. I lost everything of living credit cards and I was trying to figure out what to do next and so I just started like trying things in my head because that's the only thing I control the only control I really had was if I was if I was not happy verbs in my mind the only control ahead was will work on my mind as I started. Just do things to my mind and started trying things and I found. Things are starting to make me shift to make me feel better. And if they worked I went deeper if it stopped working through. I didn't care all I wanted was one result was to get out of this place and so avoid by following that almost like a decision tree of things that are working out working and going deeper deeper. I came up with like a simple practice doing every day and I was just getting better and better. Better my take a better in my life started getting better and this didn't take long. It took weeks if most right and it was it was. I'd never ever knew that was possible to go from that kind of darkness to like almost like light. And so you know it's like when you discover something in life that's really transformative. The next thing. Is you become like newly converted your friends. Who are going through stuff. I would tell them like Lara Dude. Like don't worry. I figured out here I would write little things because while I'll be building companies in Silicon Valley. I'd also been training myself to write literary fiction. I wanted to be write novels right. So I've done the ten thousand hours. I knew how to write someone. Just right up little things and sent to them like little almost a couple of word a couple of pages worth like. Here's what I did. Here's what I went through here. Do this right. I would do this for friends and because it gets tiring having to explain again again because people ask questions adding them again. It gets here. Let me just write it that I could share the same people. I mean different people and it started it worked for them because it's like a simple simple stuff. There's nothing complicated. Have to stand on your head and scratch your. You know like do anything to say. Just little stuff you're doing inside your head beer. And they had all the time any day she'll things that when and we'll get to all that and we'll break it all down but foundational things. That seem so simple that we often overlook. Well look ultimately. If you look at anything in life you look at Art. You look at writing. You look at Physics math anything. Simplicity's where it's all the if the closer to break it down to the basics the very very fundamental basics and simplicity is transformation happens you know especially for us as human beings. We don't need to know complicated stuff. We will not practice it. We need simple stuff that we can do consistently and I was talking with every time. I ritual you know talking yesterday and like was the Diet Best Diet I think the best I can keep consistently was the best fitness program. The one that you can keep consistently you know not the one that you do once a month you know and same thing with the mind. What is the best way for mindset the simplest most effective that you can do consistently and I was in a place where all I wanted was results? I didn't care about theory. I didn't care about Does it make me feel half better. I just wanted to get out over was right so I wanNA come back to your story because a company failing isn't event right and even the word failure is our story on it like you wanted anyway. I was totally in that story right. You're in that story. So you talked about this valley that you made to love yourself but let's go back and set the stage a little better. Because I think that a lot of listeners our podcast might be able to identify it. Identify with it. So what were you doing? You had a situation. You had an intended outcome. It didn't work out. It wasn't what you wanted. But what was the story that you created around it? And where were you at that time that you were doing the opposite of loving yourself while? I was a typical Entrepreneur story in the sense. Like look I didn't take even a Sunday off over three and a half years I think no near the end. My team convinced mutate. Start taking Sunday's off right. I was so obsessed. I was going to pull this off. My entire sense of self was wrapped up. All my money was wrapped up in it and it was coming close to be successful. So my ego was wrapped up in it I WANNA blew up. You know I I took it personally. You know which which is normal. But it's also kind of silly because I gave it my all. You know it's not like a didn't work my butt off you know But it was like the whole story of failure and also I was just. I was worn out. I was sick There are other things happening my life that would result just like a cascade effect of just being bottom and one of the things. I tell people as like look. Don't cut got caught up in my story in a it's a human thing hitting bottom is hitting bottom. People know what that is. You can be living in a in a in a Bedouin. Tent in the middle of the desert understand. What like feeling bad is like we're paying bottom doesn't mean that you have to have built a company to hit bottom should universal humane human. The human you know fear love pain joy these things these are all fundamental human constructs right so and that are all relative to your circumstances just like you said you don't have to be a founder now could be trying to do something for your kid's school well. You could have anything life. A BREAK-UP HAPPEN YAM breakup. Great for gave making your head bottom tastic. I'm poster child for those you know like I it's it's a very human thing but also rising is also very human

Shaker Heights: A Clockwork Orange

"Lisa pruitt is dead. Someone stabbed her twenty one times in the early morning hours of September Fourteenth Nineteen Ninety. She was found behind the Mansion. Where her boyfriend? Dan dreifort lived with his parents. Dance friends pointed the finger at the weird kid in school Kevin Young. And although there was no evidence linking Kevin to the crime and even though he had an alibi he quickly became the prime suspect for the detectives of the Small Town Department. They were out of their league and they knew it so they enlisted a renowned psychologist from Syracuse University. To help them get a confession from Kevin Young. No matter what I understand that in indeed. That's a very powerful alibi that the father indicates the Dan was in fact in his room and that they both heard the screams together. Yes that's that's very powerful. There is some I must say that we we had some difficulty still however with Dan subsequent behavior he after they go out to the edge of the property and and I'll go back into the home apparently satisfied that the source of the scream has left the area or whatever and that they can't find anything unusual. Apparently Dan rea exits the house to find the bicycle and then in fact without telling his parents called nine one one on his own to report what he believes to be. Now suspicious circumstances but then when the parents here the PRUITT's outside on the long you know and they're distraught in here are all these police vehicles. The crime scene being established up. Dan goes to bed falls asleep while the parents are waiting for the plain clothes. Detective to come in and interview them I found that I found that unusual in somewhat disconcerted but what we decided here was that Dick decided that well. That's not that's academic right. Because it's not Dan that we're going to be interrogating. It's it's Kevin. And whether or not he's the guy or not. We want to give the full shot to use the best psychological coercion. We can't right if in fact so that we get an admission out of him if in fact he is the killer. What is is the form talking to Kevin? Now he's gone to well. What we're trying to do is get a grand. Jury assembled where all witnesses would be subpoenaed and questioned before a grand jury including Kevin Young. What kind of immunity is involved in that None that I know of council allowed no Council no counsel he may take the Fifth Amendment. Almost certainly council would advise him to do that given that he has no immunity even willing immunity in such an interrogation right. Kevin is on a legally qualifies for adult offenders. Status is that right. That's right. Let me try to discords for a minute or two about what I believe to be. The psychological dynamics behind Kevin's peculiarities. There's no question that on the face of it Kevin's evidences self loathing self-deprecation what is sometimes called poor self image. He is in fact. I some suspicion that his own hospitalization was for an abortive suicide attempt to be the case the most recent one yes not to mojos while he indicated to the interviewer that he had nothing left to live for. I have that person with me. The officer that did the interviewing surgeon gray is here with me in my office. An excellent job by the way sergeant it was it was obviously a very productive interview. Even though we didn't get an admission there are some very revealing points that you undoubtedly felt that he was just about to tumble to to Rollover Dick and I both commented that In reading your report that first of all frequently visiting the bathroom. How many times three times within some short span of time right right all the signs of stress that something is bothering him. Yeah I mean all the physical signs in terms of I contact motion sitting back and forth in your chair and all the classic kind of interview things that you'd like to see once in a while. Were all clearly there. I mean the stress was real high on his level. What do you make of him saying that he could tell you that he had done it? And then he'd go to the hospital for a couple years but he really couldn't live with themselves. He he didn't tell you the truth. I mean I mean it's almost like is there truth other than he did it that I mean one of the things. We had been warned about ahead of time was the possibility that he had already justified. Some sort of course of action in mind and if his justification at something to do with it no. I really didn't do it or someone else did it. I mean if maybe he had totally blocked it out. We really don't know I mean. We were already prepared for the possibility that he had justified. This somehow and that he wasn't going to feel Yes this is On Jim Rights advice right right. Yeah I I. I concur a denial defense mechanism. For Kevin is high in his hierarchies of his ego protection. He is he's a fantasize he's A. His behavior is compensatory character. Who let me talk about that a bit. I think when you find such virulent self-deprecation self loathing I think you need to reach for an account doesn't doesn't stand on its own merit and the account is that you look at this. The self-loathing as compensatory behavior as denial behavior that is to say denial of the intrinsic the underlying belief that you are in fact superior that you are ideal in every way that you are a nip The opposite of someone who is unworthy you're Cream Lee worthy but that those thoughts are anxiety producing the Greeks used to call that the sin of Shoebridge. The notion that you aspired to God hood that you that you are. God causes enormous anxiety and anxieties compensated for defended against by the posture of the self deprecating. Self loathing fence. So you're very happy to talk about your being suicidal you're being unworthy. Nobody will talk to you. You're not found desirable by either men or women or what. What have you because that's your pose? That's your deception. What you don't want to talk about is the fact that your God that you control everyone that you believe you control your life etc and all the people around you you live in deception oppose the opposite of it. It seems to me that of what a perhaps in the attack we originally took. You don't minimize you. You maximize what he did his responsibility. His significance is capacity that the crime is important not minimal. He doesn't need help. He needs a pause for what he was able to accomplish his significance his importance etc is guilt feeling his guilt and there's no doubt that he in fact feels guilty in this post offense behavior of of starting a new life and I found that very significant in the statement that his profile of the killer suggest that he would move on and start a new life and then when he referred to a circumstances at college he referred to that as a new life for him right. He's in fact. He's very comfortable and whatever guilt he may have had. I think he's been able to deal with. I think that it's transparent and obvious that the guild is not sufficient to compensate or overbalanced his fears of the punishment that will accrue to will follow upon confession of that guilt. He's already fantasized circumstances of his imprisonment. So what we need to do is is. We need to arouse him around the Gilt again and that that may be difficult because now he's had ample time to scar over to see. Nothing is going to happen. That he's been successful is God like powers him again. Faced him because he is invincible? But I think that's the tact. We need to take that. He should feel guilty. He doesn't need help. He needs punishment. Does he feel that guilt. Still know as I'm saying I think he's originally it's completely it was able to compensate adequately for this because God felt guilt indeed the opposite. He would've been conflicted between feeling the importance of having done something that ordinary mortals. Don't do you normally mortals. Don't kill he understands. I think this his problems with his impulse control. He's impulsive is a great deal of difficulty with impulse control. He has to guard against this incredible power. That is within him this this power anger violence in. He asked to protect themselves from that and part of that his pose self deprecation etc the self-loathing. We need to play to what he believes to be his strengths. An inch doing we will arouse in him. His anxieties the anxieties and feeling god-like and those anxieties will trigger his guilt feelings again. We need to do what you would do. More with a a serial killer. It seems to me has in favor of the notions of power in being able to kill to recreate that sense of power significance that life taking capacity the interview took the tact of minimizing. You need help. Well you know they don't really you know you. Full offenders can mitigate this to the judge because he felt remorse etcetera etcetera. I'm saying and we know that that didn't work right. I'm saying we maximize the crime instead. Maximize the power the significance. You go back through the crime with a kind of fallacious dwelling upon the details but particularly with respect to the power the sheer marvelous power of being able to take the likes. You follow me

"And political experts and kris lindahl go to you first we can show at once again up on screen pruitt's problems we don't have enough time in the program through the mall i don't know which is word regis the chickfila one or the us bachelors from trump tower but what do you think the tipping point over look the hand lotion that he had a go i will tell people first of all i was just in the room where that screen is that's a gigantic television screens with that that is not a small screen so it speaks to how many there are lots of take on the thing about it is i'm more baffled by why it took so long then why today scott pruitt did everything we know donald trump doesn't like including get lots of bad headlines repeatedly you know i guess it some combination of what we think which is he was someone who did execute donald trump's agenda look at the epa there's a lot you can do on the regulatory front there was a lot of withdrawing of delaying of obama era regulation so there's that and i do think there was some element of donald trump is a guy who if you say ziege he's eggs everyone around him for months now and jim you know this better than any of us has been saying why is this guys to work here he's a natural contrarian that there's some tendency if you guys think he's bad we're going to keep him around and sabrina let's go through the resignation letter a little bit from scott pruitt i think it's very interesting we'll start the unrelenting attacks on me personally he says my family are unprecedented and have taken a sizable toll on all of us and then there's another section how he finishes the letter to the president mice desire and service to you as always been to bless you as you make important visions for the american people i believe you were serving as president today because of god's providence i believe that same providence brought me into your service i pray his i have served you that i have blessed you and enabled you to effectively lead the american people thank you again mr president for the honor of serving you and i wish you got speed and all that you put your hand to sabrina there there seems to be three elements not taking any responsibility of blaming the media and trump worship would which is you know the does it seems that trump world and it signed your faithful friend scott pruitt there at the very end of this so i i suppose he considers himself to be a faithful friend of the president what do you make of that resignation letter it seems to tach from reality well throughout his political career scott pruitt has leaned heavily on his baptist faith and so i think that's why you see a lot of these references to god and to religion it is quite clear though like many who are in trump's orbit he sees the value of proving once again loyalty to this president of lavishing praise on president trump who it's worth noting in accepting scott pruitt's resignation not actually acknowledge all of the wrongdoing it's difficult having said that to blame anyone else for your problems when you're the subject of at least fourteen separate federal investigations but remember scott food is someone who has a lot of political ambition both in the state of oklahoma where he is considered running for governor as well as nationally and so i think this might not be the last that we hear from him and lavishing praise on president trump is a way to perhaps peas appeal to the president's space and keep himself relevant and speaking lavishing praise here's the president jeffrey toobin talking about scott pruitt let's play it administrators scott pruitt thank you very much epa.

"A creating controversy that you don't need and so i presume andrew wheeler at epa will continued the policies that scott pruitt started only he'll he'll do it more more cleverly and especially and and more quietly and and just keep changing those regulations well and in terms of shining light on that jennifer reading some of the reporting here on mr wheeler who's a new name because he's he's coming into pruitt's job today former co lobbyists who shares pruitt's zeal undo environmental regulations but unlike pruitt he's viewed as as mentioned here tonight a consummate washington insider who voids the limelight has navigated the rules we lose friends and critics alike say he could prove to be more effective than his controversial former boss and implementing trump's deregulatory agenda and i wonder whether this is sort of the mike pence piece of the administration there's all of the controversial and sometimes frankly embarrassing conduct around the the more flamboyant members of the trump administration but then beneath that there is a hard right a group of people moving much more quietly and if so what if anything should be done about that jennifer well i think you're right that in essence this is trading up although scott pruitt had a great reputation he actually wasn't that affective a lot of his efforts at deregulation got tangled up in the courts and he really certainly set the ball in motion but he didn't get all that far on several major initiatives including his scheme to get rid of a car mileage scan standards so we'll see whether the new insider is a little bit more slick a little bit more clever but to be honest none of this is going to change until congress changes because what we're missing right now is a coequal branch of government that's willing to exercise oversight that's entirely absent right now and so long this trump and his cronies are in power and so long as the republicans are giving him a free pass nothing's really going to change what but i wonder and let me play gene some of the pushback we've seen because the usual calculus in washington is you can wait out any story and eventually things will move on and then trump era things move very quickly the pruitt story seems to be different in the pressure because there was a reporting piece of all this information it was a whistle blower piece trump's own people speaking out then there was a public peace i mean this is this is got to be one of the more well known more disliked epa chiefs in any party in a long time here was this moment that sort of captured a lot of civic imagination of someone confronting pruitt in person take a look to remind nice cares actually are violent believe in climate change and seriously all her children urging design of work your sandals she gene this is harder question but where does that sort of activism fit into keeping things on the front burner on the agenda in a way that actually matters because certainly not every civic debate we're having right now end with wait for the next election whenever that may be no i mean look as you said things move so fast these days and under this administration that is probably true that you can kind of survive anyone band story on less depending on how bad it is but but scott pruitt could not survive thirty seven bad stores could not survive the accretions of of impropriety after outrage after insanity that he just he ran through it was not possible and he was becoming a drag political drag potentially on on republicans looking ahead to the midterm elections i mean why would publican senators republican house members want to go out and have to defend scott pruitt's pursuit of ritzcarlton lotion and anna used mattress from the trump hotel why would they have to defend that they wouldn't want to there i mean i don't think anyone wants to even talk about it defended and yet here we are i take responsibility for anchoring the conversation david there are a lot of things that donald trump does that really don't get the the criticism they would if any other president did it i'm gonna play for you trump tonight i mean this is not believed story but here we are weak after this terrible shooting in a newspaper here we are talking about information we only know because journalists have reported out and this is what the.

"I it's important that we talk about ethics and ethical lapses on the part of government officials who serve the public and i hear you pivoting each time to the environmental agenda that scott pruitt is supposed to be executing here and how not only is he not doing that he's rolling it back which i guess is is his bosses imperative but that the courts are slapping him back as well for doing this incorrectly road i mean i think the biggest story of the epa is not the ethical lapses real are unsubstantiated regarding scott pruitt and they are as i said a major distraction for a guy who otherwise it's quite smart and prove himself as the attorney general of oklahoma to be pretty proficient to challenging obama regulatory rules i mean but again the real story is his effort to roll back the obama environmental agenda but in neither category of his activity are things going well right now well i wonder if one of those two categories helps explain the other you know other cabinet officials have been let go for for lapses seemingly less serious than all of scott pruitt's tom price over at hhs was fired after lavish travel accusation scott pruitt already has those all these other at the collapses alleged and there's evidence of some of them and yet he remains why is that is he so popular with the right and his regulatory rollback agenda that he surviving here what do you make of it i think that there's some pretty good evidence that that is the case and there are a variety of groups out there that are that are campaigning for trump not to fire pruitt and there are conservative groups there are dark money groups and it seems as if the industry quite likes that is the oil and gas and coal and other regulated industries the auto industry they like all of these regulatory rollbacks that produce doing and and trump in fact is being pressured to keep prude and then to some extent as well you know the epa and the department of interior if there are two asian.
