Why Rent Your Marketing When You Should Own It?
"Hello and welcome to another episode or the duct tape marketing podcast. This is John. Jansen my guest today actually have two guests today, Clem Huffman, and Alexa are Sierra with south. Print in Charlotte North Carolina. So clemen Alexa thanks for joining me. I. Start with do you founded this business in Nineteen Eighty Eight Let's change in the printing business hasn't. John Absolutely. You're making you're making plates and slap an on and everything weren't you? Won't of copies a of plates you're right lot of masking but yeah, it's changed the time. Yeah. So so we're GONNA talk about some of those changes because some of that came about from you. Probably in some ways the reason you brought Alexa on his you guys are doing more than just print. So Alexei your. Did I get this right. You are recent very recent Grad of UNC wars I. Am I graduated from Chapel Hill's media and journalism school this past may yeah. So I get to ask you how is the real word different than what teach you about marketing in school? Is actually kind of funny. I didn't fully study marketing and. Advertising and PR. which as you know is Large branches of marketing. So. It's definitely interesting. It's it's been a great experience working. Here at socity Prenton getting to implement marketing and. Utilize advertising and pr just of those things outside of a school setting. Impact as you say, I think the thing that's so hard to replicate a course in an in an academic setting is that you know that customer that walks in the door You know you're you're you're not just studying. What they care about I mean you're talking in your, you're feeling what they're. You know needing and wanting and and I think that that that's the part that you. You know it's like trying to replicate stuff in a laboratory. You just really again, it's a lot more enjoyable for sure. So. So printing is a very visual business obviously. The. It's amazing how you know ink on paper looks different than on a screen. Looks different than on camera on the phone and whatnot. Has Has. All of the shift to the virtual world made. The case for a printing business harder and I, answer either one of you. Think it's harder. certainly. In the last recession we were. There was a lot of migration to the -Ture. Techniques Communicating I think now there are a lot of there's a lot of data that suggests that tangible. documents a postcard to use. The simplest example. Has a lot more power than it did. It's it does get delivered the post office pretty good at delivering and it it it if it's good, it'll be retained. If it's good, it'll be used. We've kind of connected the tangible direct mail with some some Ma digital advertising. Through a partnership we've joined and we feel pretty good about the ability to multi touch. Selects authority on my chest adore. I'll just let's just savable I walked in the door and I said, you know I'll just text you this stuff I, mean, why would I need I mean what's how do you make the case for? Just what Clem talked about the multi touch the multi. Mediums I mean, how do you make the case for direct mail or for a print brochure these days? Yeah. Little something that Clement I talk about a lot is how I think some people might misunderstand the impact that direct mail and More traditional forms of marketing actually have on business effort. So for example, millennials. Actually are one of the. Biggest I guess demographics that benefit from enjoy receiving direct mail so I think it's the data is behind A. Direct mail and more traditional forms of print marketing. Where it's the data speaks for itself and also I think because more digital were straightforward forms of marketing are popular. Right now is a great way for businesses to stand out by using Prenton.
"unc" Discussed on Mornings With Gail - 1310 KFKA
"Players practice. You're getting ready to play football and I. Am you know confident that we're going to play in the spring? The truth is at this point right now, we're just not prepared to football if we weren't we playing Sarah. I T. an opportunity to get healthy and strong and practice before we get on the field. So you know we don't hurt ourselves and I think that's why big guys waiting till the spring. But you might see some of these other teams playing this fall, which is great. I need to watch the football myself. Practicing. And fifty seven, hundred fans in the stands at Mile High. I. Mean. We're not going to be subjected to solely those cardboard cutouts. That's a good thing. It is it is a good thing and I think they'll have to house and protocols for socially thing but I'm if he. Fancy. Something that I'd like to have also at UNC in the spring as well. Something to look forward to for Sir. All right. UNC has a special board of Trustees meeting tomorrow, and you'll be discussing among other things the impacts of covert as it relates to your budget. Can you share some of those details? Sure tomorrow morning eight thirty The it's a gym meeting it's open to the public. If you go on our university website at UNC O. Dot Edu you could find ways access out and listen in and I'm GONNA be talking about the budget the challenges with code were significant not only at UNC but across the state and we're are implanted impact about twenty, four, million dollars or song. And you know part of it is a five billion dollar cut And that cut from the State we actually got cut fifty eight percent from the state this year, which is twenty, five million dollars, but there wasn't federal relief that backfield that support this year we don't know what's going to happen in disco twenty two, but that was a huge impact for us, and then we have some declines enrollment and also a pack and housing and dining. So the overall impact to our campus. Twenty four million dollars but we have been hard at work all summer and this fall to address that. I had a financial taskforce. You'd have a faculty students and staff and we created a model that actually will mitigate that that cut. And we'll actually finish up the year with the same reserves forty two and a half million dollars that we have the end of nineteen and that's because you know we've we focused on. In the summertime closing down a lot of operations we did furlough some folks. We had to do a few layoffs and we really heighten our ballot this fall as well. So we're able to reduce about ten million dollars of operating costs. This fall, we had about six million dollars reductions over the summer and working on plans for the spring. So although it's huge reduction for US twenty, million dollars, I'm just so impressed by how we came together at the campus to address this, and again, at the end of the year, we're going to have the same amount of cash is we had. A year ago and I think that's very important going into next year because we don't know what's going to happen fiscal twenty to the state is still looking at a billion dollars. Worth of revenue shortfall and that's going to impact higher. Ed and. I don't know how much but that's you know I'm very concerned more. So for chemical twenty two, then fiscal twenty one to be with you. A little bit you touched on declining enrollment and that seems to be a trend. Among institutions of higher education across the country, is that going to be part of the new normal in the future That's a great question. Gail I talked to other CEO's in presidents across the state. I think all of us have seen declines in enrollment this year and A lot of that clearly is the first time full time freshmen and we believe that there are thousands of students on the sidelines gap year this year on what's going on and we hope to convince him to come back to college either the Spring and the fall. Many them if you found to work so that they can. But I think it's violent important for the future to state that we educate. Our Future leaders are our future business owners. Know, our future employees and I think It's something we're all concerned about. We know that there are you know took a bigger gap here, but we also understand the importance of them getting education to. Continue to bolster our economy in Colorado. Interests in use that term One of my friends of Horse Tooth Reservoir East college student just got himself a nice little boat guess what he named it gap year. Gap Year. Hopefully hopefully, they'll be able to pay off that at boat with. College education in the future yeah. There you go. All right before Chikao. Colorado free APP DAY IS COMING UP October thirteenth. Can you tell you a little bit about why that's important and how UNC involved? That we had about six thousand applications and I on on this application day last year, which was up three quarters up seventy one percent from the year prior, and it's an opportunity for a family can students across the state to apply to universities for free. It's one day one day only. So you have to be prepared and have everything ready to go. But I think it provides that that extra. Fifty dollars advantage. For, you not having to pay the applications and it allows you to explore universities that you may not have normally applied to. And I think it's a great way for a lot. Of students to have a chance to. See what? You have to offer and. Do in a way that doesn't hit the hit your pockets. So it's it's important not only for UNC, but certainly for the state and it's a huge tremendous success. Think Prostate. You know tens of thousands of additional vocations that are generated because of this program that started two thousand eighteen. And where can we find more information on Colorado Free App Day You can directly UNC O..
The difference between implicit bias, systemic bias and unconscious bias
"There a difference between implicit bias, unconscious bias and systematic bias. How interchangeable are they? What's your? What's your take on that? Yeah. So these I mean the three of those, it's accession it fascinating because the three of us we often. Use Them interchangeably but they're actually very very different and it's so funny when you mention even subtle differences like Duke versus UNC, right what I talk about in a lot of my research and what I studied, how these really subtle differences that. So much of success outcomes are determined by these subtle signals and cues in stereotypes and perceptions even something like I mean, it sounds funny. But the the color blue and seeing the difference between Duke Blue Versus Carolina blue immediately there's some sort of a reaction that happens but if we take that into the business world, for example, you know Marissa Mayer was Famously when she first started, Google spent a long period of time because she had this hypothesis that people would click through ads at a certain rate for storage shade of blue. So she spent a week or two just testing blue number twelve versus blue number fifteen, blue fifteen versus blue number twenty and found that there is one shade of blue that people were more likely to click through I. Don't know two or three percent more likely to click than others, and it may not sound like a huge percentage when you're selling ads for millions and billions of dollars that two percent can really make a difference. So even something like that he settle signals and cues but back to your original question. The ways in which these these signals and cues are enacted means the difference between unconscious and implicit and systemic sort of bias Sufi. Think about bias from this holistic sort of. This holistic continuum there's buys it's sort of over right. We know that you discriminate or your biased against someone based on how they look right but there's also bias that for example, I give you example imagine you're playing this board game a board game and you know you have no idea that that that every time you roll the dice, you're rolling affair of dice and your opponent every time. They're rolling the dice rolling in unser here of dice where they for some reason always gonNa roll lower numbers and you're playing this game and the whole time you're playing this game you're winning and you never see that the dice that you're rolling are different of dice than than your opponent and so when you go at the end of the game and you win, you're not really aware that there. Was Systemic sort of bias that that you that your success was due to something that was just in the system right? You one form of bias. Another former buys is that perhaps you unknowingly once of dice are red and once it of dice or blue, and the pollution of dice are the ones that are always going to be the ones that rule the lower number and so implicitly you're. Sort of you're told or you were taught like the red dice are always better just tried get those but you have no idea why and so every time it's your opponents turn you hand them the blue set of dice, right? So you're implicitly biased against because you somehow think that the red dice are better and and that you and so and so there's sort of this unsteadiness built in. Through what you've been taught or through what you've sort of known and so there's sort of this implicit also like subconscious to some extent subconscious, there is much more. You have no idea why you weren't taught that read was better than blue but for some reason, you realize that was always going to roll better than blue and so it's not this told you to always give blue to the. Opponent, but you just naturally always give the blue to the economy and make sure that you get the rats. So there's all these different forms of bias that exists and so sometimes I'd give that example to kind of straight the really small differences that exist between these types of

During the pandemic, social media can be an information lifeline for rural communities
"So hard to quit facebook is that it's actually really essential for information support and connection. That's especially true in small rural communities where local news is mostly happening on facebook and people are turning to the platform is a resource for information about covid nineteen. But K. UNC's Adam raise reports from Colorado that in groups that were meant to keep people updated divisiveness is creeping in. Like many school districts across the country in Morgan. County, Colorado has been working on a plan for the fall. So some parents in the rural county have been turning to a more than five thousand, nine hundred member facebook group to get and share information. This is exactly what Christie spots Cobley had in mind when she created the group in two, thousand, twelve, I kept thinking we need a place where the community can go and find information many posts from people, asking questions or sharing information about covid nineteen restrictions, local politics, community resources, the local paper that covers the counties biggest city used to have four reporters. But now it shows just one full time reporter with another paper out here in. Rural America sometimes, we don't get information as fast as doing urban counterparts asked Nathan Trout he works on a farm near the town of Gan's and primarily uses facebook groups to buy or sell farm equipment, but he sees a broader value in them. So I think it's really or that we need to open up all meetings or communications that we we as AS Roma citizens know what's going on in our rural communities. These groups can provide a platform that wasn't available before Roberto Gherardo has helped rural areas take advantage of social media as director of the Purdue University Center for Regional Development. If you use it properly, you can convey value win formation. You can really truly have discussion and discourse. That helps he says there are also downsides and Morgan County facebook group administrator Cobley is seeing those now with covid nineteen I think there's so much longer before the pandemic she says, facebook group remained fairly civil now small number of posts provoked dozens of argumentative vulgar comments some with misleading or false information cobley was a hand off moderator before the pandemic but now I think I, it was time I. I need to get control back over of the group in March she posted some ground rules. That's vital part of moderating community based social media says Jeremy Lipshultz he's a professor at the University of Nebraska Omaha. Who Researches Social Media I think if you're honest and transparent and you keep your audience in mind in your fair with everybody fares as you can be, you're not going to make everybody happy. But I think it will work fairly well over time the moderating rules for the Morgan County facebook groups seemed to help but we still has weeks or she doesn't even want to look at the group and yet I think it will always be around one way or another. It's not something I will ever shut now still in mid-july. Cobley to crack crackdown on threads about mask-wearing requirements that devolved into arguments laced with profanities. That's K. UNC's Adam race from Colorado. And now, for some related links, it's hard to get numbers on how many people are joining new facebook groups during this pandemic. But lots of stories from all over the country and the world point two people gathering figure out how to deal with school reopening teachers getting together to share tips for remote learning small businesses, creating support networks for each other and sadly stories of groups devolving into such toxic discourse that their moderators closed them down. I will say I opened facebook for the first time in over a year to try to around and get a sense of how many community groups there might be, how many people are in them little light research and I did almost immediately find a page in my area had some updated information about my county and some restrictions on hair salons had recently been eased, and now I have hope I might be able to get a haircut soon. So that was actually kind of helpful although I did not read any of the comments. The thing that's frustrating is that although facebook makes it easy to create groups and you can kind of assume sadly that most people are on it. This is literally what the Internet started as a series of forums and chat groups and bulletin boards. It's what people have done online since online began and in some ways, the great lie about facebook is that you can't do this anywhere else. Have the groups, dumped the engagement algorithms and the hyper targeted ads and you know what you've got. The World Wide Web I'm
Black Gun Ownership Rises Amid Pandemic, Protests For Racial Justice
"A record number of Americans have purchased guns this year including Black Americans from K. N. UNC in northern Colorado Lee. Patterson reports that incidents of violence against people of color have pushed some to purchase guns for the very first time and warning to our listeners. There are sounds of gunfire in this story. What type of gun is? So this is a Smith and Wesson nine millimeter shield cat trailer bought her handgun this past spring these as she practices at an indoor range with her husband like it's no big deal. But talking through her mask trailer describes how she felt the first time she pulled the trigger is beyond terrified shaking. Hands were sweaty. Trailer is a democratic political consultant who lives in Colorado. At first, she was nervous cleaning and shooting her new gun. And she had a bad experience, the first range she went to she says people were staring she felt unwelcome. Still regardless of the anxiety I had around. All those things. I got into this because I feel like it was necessarily trailer I started thinking about buying a gun when she saw empty grocery store shelves at the beginning of the pandemic. Then she watched racial justice protests unfold across the country. She started thinking about pushback from people who disagree with those efforts if it looks like communities, of Color and people that support communities of color are rising up against white supremacy that could be a problem for us is. It's probably time probably time for them to buy guns a thought that many other Americans have also had in. August. Alone people bought one point eight million firearms according to industry estimates a trade group called the National Shooting Sports Foundation reports the gun sales to customers have grown more percentage wise than for any other racial or ethnic group. With. Her New gun trailer wants to feel like she has a chance during a home invasion or an encounter with police. What we as the family had to determine is, how do we WANNA die? Instead of look at it that way. DO WE WANNA die not being prepared or at least trying to protect ourselves. That's how you weigh that as part of becoming a new gun owner trailer joined the National African American Gun Association Philip Smith is the founder nationally across the board from all over every state. We have people joining all times a day night. You know I I thought something was wrong with computer. Smith was watching membership numbers rise after the death of George Floyd may but black people have been using guns for hunting and protection for a long time historian say that Harriet Tubman carried firearms so did the Black Panthers in the nineteen sixties these days according to a Gallup poll released last year nineteen percent of black people own guns. Smith says his members are not monolithic. Some women join because they've been sexually assaulted some women join because they wanNA teach you some men join because they want to just get really good at self defense people are joining now for different. Reasons some want to support the National African American Gun Association Financially Smith says for others it's more spiritual I. Think people were looking for a home a place where you can kind of event you can belong where you felt your mind having a relief of some sort Bruce Tomlin a truck driver who lives in New Mexico describes his decision to buy a gun response to stress. I'll just say amounting society He felt that way after watching cellphone video showing the death of Ahmad arbitrary a black man who was shot while jogging through neighborhood in Georgia earlier this year don't. Go around arm the rest of my life. That's because he's been feeling under attack for years after the two thousand, twelve killings of Trayvon Martin, for example, and after the mass shooting at a black church in Charleston in two thousand, fifteen by a white supremacist goes like I can just be mine them all business. And if somebody who's a racist, just decide to roll up on me gun meet down. As is decided that like if I go out I'M GONNA go out shooting back. But now that he's an actual gun owner, it's not so straightforward day to day of feel like I can defend myself better defend my loved ones. But I usually get comfortable having it sometime he does not want to kill or injure anyone open carry makes them nervous I would never take my gone to the grocery store and carry around inside or anything like that. But on the other hand I could be in a situation where needed still out in the car or whatever I just like knowing that I have it gun ownership is complicated for Tomlin especially because he's black if he was stopped by police says, he probably wouldn't tell them that he had a gun. And catch trailer says the same thing giving the example of philander casteel he was shot during a traffic stop for years ago in Minnesota after telling an officer that he had a firearm, his car casteel did have a permit to carry it. Cat Trailer believes that gun cost him his life we're not given a fair shake when these conversations are happening automatically worsen tensions are assumed just because we're black, we're gun owners for both of these new black gun owners. It's an identity that comes with risks, but does make them feel safer for

All The Fun Stuff (That Shouldn't Be in Your Drinking Water
"Our guest today is Maury Walker and together, we're going to talk about what's in your water and more than ever. That answer is stuff that shouldn't be Maury. Welcome. Thank you. It's great to be here. We're so happy that you're here. Could you maybe just tell everybody who you are what you do? Yeah. So I am actually at Duke University, I make graduate students starting my fifth year studying micro-plastics. So my doctoral dissertation is in civil and Environmental Engineering Department. Uh studying chemicals associated to plastic and how they end up in. Things like our fresh water or the stomach acid in a bird or fish, and just understanding how those chemicals transform in possibly more toxic than the original products. But yeah, I'm a engineer and chemist. Chemists, Great Brian it's just like you. Same as me yes. Amos me you said, you went to Duke and Queen you love Duke Right look. It's not that I don't love. Duke. It's one of my good friends growing up as like a UNC basketball guy and so. I know I know I know I know sorry about this Amari. Like. We. Don't have to high. It's it's it's different than. Saying. My undergrad was at UC. Berkeley. So my to rival his Stanford right now. Oh Nice Nice Nice my wife. And my wife went to Stanford but she also doesn't care about sports and so people are very confused on they're like Berkeley's terrible. She's we can all be friends. Yeah. We we can work on it. Said holy cow quickly as a reminder to everyone because we haven't done this in a while Our goal always is to provide some context for what we're talking about today and then dig into a action oriented questions that we can all ask to help support today's topic and and Amaury Yup that sounds pretty great to me. We'll see if he can remember how to do this been a little bit of a hiatus. which is which things have been a little a little crazy out there. Just, a little bit just a little bit anywhere anyways Ann Mari We like to start with one important question to set the tone for the chaos follow Instead of saying, tell us your entire life story we like to ask Amari wire you vital to the survival of the species. If I just had like a compilation of guests making that noise after first reaction we need to do that. Yeah it's great. Great. The the easy answer there is that I'm just one person in a collective of people that care about leaving the world a better place than it started, but I I kind hope to. Be Relevant in the fact that I am a black female environmental engineer in chemist trying to change the world as far as micro-plastics in water quality and you know I'm trying to be an inspiration to other people who may not have considered a career I'm like this or you know a the that you can't be a scientist or engineer and even a science communicator. So I'm hoping to take a little bit more of a public facing way to show people that there are people out there trying to change the world

"Site well you know last Sunday on the show I spoke with the Ted Sabado attended played for me back back in the day at mercy college we're talking about his son Erin the all American first baseman from you and see who last week was being touted as a first round draft choice and sure enough this past Wednesday evening that happened Erin was selected by the Minnesota Twins in the first round the twenty seventh pick overall and and while Erin are are you there yes I'm here good well first of all congratulations that this is one heck of an achievement achievement what it quite an accomplishment I'd known talking to your dad he's over the moon I'm sure you're the same way yeah it's still surreal and thank you so much I really appreciate it let's talk because it's been unusual year for you Erin you know that this is what was with the the the the college season being stopped prematurely the draft being only five rounds what goes through the days leading up to the draft I mean where the scouts from the various big league teams well they are really talking directly to usually talking to your family legal advisor Bobby Ballard we don't walk us through what happened over the last you know a few days before the you got picked yeah James would go through Bobby and we would just set up zoom links I mean we couldn't have people come to the house or they they can scout anyway so they need to check the system down and talk with me and it was over soon kind of like what we did for college classes and it would they would just be a little questions about who I was the person as a hater my character at what what am I doing on my off time but that was the only way that we could really connectors with all the the code stuff we we are talking with the the general managers or the regular player operations will who were what level of the organization we talking with former director and on the team but there is that bit about the top level got to got to bail decisions and I'm I'm curious how many teams were talking to you a bunch of whether there is I did about probably ten to fifteen meeting well the contact with doubts from almost every team she's unbelievable and and friends if you haven't seen Erin play you know check it out go online and just see some of the the the video clips and he just he just punishes a baseball no I don't like the way instead hit baseball is back in the day in college but Erin and Ted was a great great hitter al tell yeah that's that's the god's honest truth but I know you're a little bigger than your father and you hit the ball even further and he did you know so let's talk about I assume you've been what happens now mean back in the day when the most draft kids the draft takes place traditionally the scout comes to you and and there's a signing almost immediately that they don't fool around with this they want this done and then they just simply send you off their dispatch to be usually the team's spring training facility where they they work out and get you you know all certain that they figure out what my early teen you're going to play out but this is not this year this is different so what what is happening I mean you're still home right you're still home in Westchester county yeah the home I think I was talking with with my agent yesterday and some of the guys from the from the twins organization they just sat there like they just don't know like where anybody's gonna go right now that's a probably a couple of more weeks I'll be home but then they're hoping to get people them you know their spring training and and Florida but we it's more of just a a day by day thing kind of waiting to hear just playing it by ear and and just opened open do you know that something happens pretty
"unc" Discussed on The Hull Show ? 1310 KFKA
"You could be a really good player and you could be one of those players that only gets better as your college career progresses, but you may have a freshman or a junior or a sophomore in front of you so. This side of it I, really like coach, said this. We want him to be a guy who can really be aggressive. Be a scorer, be a slasher and do a lot of different things for us where he puts a lot of pressure on the defense. There's no doubt in my mind that he's going to be a guy in our league. Who's going to be very productive and go out and? And Get your twenty points on a given night twenty three points. A game is what he averaged back in. Denver says his final year there in high school and get. It's high school but I. Mean There's no reason for me I think that that was a fun offense last year for UNC. Excited to see what what his skill set could do for this team now again with C.. You. Few things there. You know you're stacked with that roster. You have a stretch of bad games which happens you start losing those minutes? And then when you when the time comes. Okay, you're going to get some more minutes because of an injury or whatever tonight then you present. I hated to kind of put it to them like that, but did you feel like you're pressing? Because that that was the difference you look at his average in the way it dropped and he said yeah, then that happens. You know you get your time goes down and suddenly you're every opportunity is sacred. Sacred to you or you WanNa push and that can be tough to so we'll see what happens a bell. Keep in touch with coach Smiley on this side of it, and obviously they're hopeful it all works out. They're going to be talking with C.. You and trying to figure that situation out to My guess is yeah. It's GONNA work out. He's GonNa play this season so hopefully. That's the case coaches. Just happy, said either way. It's going to be this year to year. We'll find out thirty minutes after the hour. We'll get the latest on the local sports flash..
Detecting Emotion Through Gait with Aniket Bera
"Hello and welcome to the AI. Today podcast I'm your host Kathleen Mall I'm your host modeled Schmeltzer our guest. Today is unaccounted. Berra is the research professor in computer science at the University of Maryland at the Gamma Lab. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you so much. Thank you for inviting. Yeah thanks so much for joining us today. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background. And your current role at the University of Maryland. Sure I've been with him for a little under a year so for this was at. Unc Chapel Hill for a year and had mcbean St at UNC in robotics so a hermit research over the last few years has been trying to work on the social aspect of our bodies whether from the computer vision side where we look different objects after we as humans when we look at different objects. How do we perceive them? So my research has always been about. Data perception for robots and robot can understand the world around us like as humans. It's what research has been over the last six seven years might Rowlatt you. Md has enough research faculty. I advise about seven students now from vision. Applications to robotic applications the psychology driven. Ai Applications on McLennan field of research is something affective computing affective computing. What it means is that we're trying to gauge emotions on Detroit's you in aggressive Shy said figured out different cues from your visual appearance like your facial expressions the way you speak things the way you walk from all of that. Can I figure out your emotions and then do something? According you follow. What specific here. That was something that we found really interesting. You know part of the reason why we reached out to you and hang you join us on their today podcasts. As we wrote an article for our today podcast listeners. He may or may not know that Kathleen and I are also contributing writers to Forbes and tech target and one of the articles that wrote in Forbes was how systems might be able to detect your emotion. Just by taking a look at how you walk and other sort of non maybe visual facial visual or verbal cues and that's part of what being socially intelligent is. I guess we as humans can read things like body language. But there's a lot more to it. So maybe you can explain some of the concepts of socially intelligent robots and why this idea of social intelligence is important yes oh the concept of socially intelligent robots is essentially making robots understanding humans. Better so we. As humans are not objective to be tend to evaluate unheard of things based on out upbringing aquaculture in all these different rates. And then associate all those things in everyday life so In this research which you mentioned the phobic mad we did when research way we could figure out how people walk and then have a garden new. Somebody's side we could mechanize that person sadness just by looking at his a her. Buster is a hub body language and maybe the robot can walk up to that person and ask questions. You look sad today. Can I help you like some help if somebody is Chris excessively angry? I might want to talk to that person and maybe even avoid that person together. Assembly looks confused. The robot co that Bush announce something that you look lost here. Do you need help been something. Do you need to some place? So all these different we inherently as humans. Do which usually doing tend to do those things so go. The last Jedi as robotics has always been about solving problems accurately and objectively so. Let's say you know the goal for about is go from point eight in be and the robot will try to figure out the shortest are the most efficient go from point eight point what via bringing in is also being associated vendor most socially aware the. Somebody's walking. I want that other person to have his hub Robot I do not want to enjoy on. Somebody's face so having all the social norms social events bring it back to robotics is what the concept of socially intelligent robot as unwise. This idea important I think has become more primetime and as they become more available among says I think they should try to attempt to understand humans and be Understand humans but go beyond that and be part of the human society He not interesting because we talk about commonsense emotional Iq and that's incredibly hard for robots and artificial intelligence to actually have been a lot harder than I think. Maybe some people realize although there has been some discussion around it and at COG Melika for the past two years we've actually done voice assistant benchmark and commonsense and emotional. Iq were too of the categories of questions that we asked because supposingly the systems were not very good at that but this idea of AI systems that can detect emotion based on gate is a really unique idea. So where did this concept come about? So we started this. Actually I think about skate years ago. I mean I know. Eight years ago IAE wasn't the we'd know now things were different back then but we started with the concept of can't be figured out somebody's personality just the like just looking at how they walk back. Then we started the representing every human being every industry as a single entity as a single dot on the screen so used to look at videos. And how this guy is trying to avoid somebody to cut across people to figure. Oh his guys aggressive. This guy's got shy guy walks around all these other guys look from that and now we figured out so from the dot aspect of figuring out the entire body leg rewrite now have around twenty two points Bush and so all our lake from your leg from your hand gestures your shoulder through your slaughtering head so all these things. All these different cues which we observe. That wasn't really being studied before there's a lot of research on the emotional especially from faces. You know somebody's happy. Somebody said there's a lot of research in this field especially from speech in the way I see something. Let's say I'm happy? I'm very happy today. I'm okay I'm happy but also the way you say. The sentence is the content of the sentence is one thing but also to the way you was at so all these different cues were being studied in different fees realized that the body language is something which really people studying. We look at people a lot. We look when they walk in the talking when they're driving but we don't we we know what they're going to but we don't really like we haven't understood how gives how walking body language relates to emotion so our on this hatred emotion is kind of it could be added all these facial cues with speed with other were. Hughes from the human so I researched

Can you give us a brief little bio about who you are and what you do here? Well here I'm the mental skill specialist for player development. I work with are pros and our juniors Getting Ready for competition preparing mentally. I work with the coaches as well to get players ready. So my job is while the coaches work on the physical side is to work on the players mental side and make sure that they're prepared for competition as well as helping them deal with things that happened in their life. So it's not just about The player on the court but the player off the court as well the holistic approach. And it's my job to make sure that the players have what they need to compete in a happy way in a healthy way and a high functioning way. Have you always wanted to do this from the very beginning was this? You're calling well not since I was a baby but Certainly when I not not really no being not being facetious anymore being serious when I was younger I wanted to be a coach and civically a baseball coach. I wanted to play professional baseball. And that didn't work out We don't need to get into that and this podcast and since tennis sports play so I had decided I was going to be a coach and maybe actually go into commentating. On Television Live sports events. I was interested in and so went to Clarion University. My Hometown University and really wasn't that interested in the courses and communication and and the degree. So I I ran into the psychology doctor Dr Easily Krause who knew that I played sports and coaching as well and she said hey you know there's actually something called sports psychology. I was around nineteen years old. I'm like what does that was. Clueless had no idea. This is dating myself but this was like nineteen ninety-two right. What is that and she said? Well come check it out. I'm going to have a special course on sports psychology and so I took the course and love. It fell in love with it and at that point. I knew that's what I wanted to do. Because an answer questions I had about my own performances in terms of at times playing great and other times. Not Performing You know going in and going four for four and having a home run and three RB is in the next game striking out four times. And why does that happen and why are sometimes feel on and other times just way off? Why sometimes in the feudal my locked in and other times? I'M MAKING MISTAKES. Couldn't answer it for myself necessarily and. I wanted to know to help myself but also to help the players that I was coaching in Baseball Thomas. Coaching sixteen seventeen eighteen year old Baseball in Pennsylvania says I dug deeper into psychology and and Indus. Four psychology started answering the questions that I had so that that was really the start and then I was fortunate to be able to go to. Unc Greensboro with Dr Dangled Who's one of the best sports psychologist in the world and having worked with him? I really got a deep understanding of what it means to perform under pressure and in really the literature sports psychology and Research and application. And really that kind of set me up. That's that's a quick version of it for what I'm doing today. I know you said baseball is not the same as tennis. But you can relate to players who have struggled in their sport given your background playing sport but you can also maybe I know you work with professionals who maybe are successful. But you probably people that. Don't make it right absolutely so you can relate to. I WANNA get dark. Unless you can relate you can really yeah. You can relate to someone who is struggling with finding their identity after thinking they were. GonNa make it as a pro and not getting there right. So how did you? How did you work through that if you can talk about that and you know? Is there a formula for figuring yourself out after your dreams and your hopes kind of change that is deep this early? So that's a great question you know getting into my psyche this turning turning the tides on me. We're GONNA talk about Irena. We will okay good so much better about that well honestly schering dot. Me That was that was a process Having gone to college and and and walked onto play baseball and it didn't work out and I didn't really understand recruiting process and probably could played somewhere but ended up not playing coming from a small rural area and losing that dream. That point was really difficult. And so I'm I'm age. Nineteen you know and and not yet mature as I am now. I know it's hard to believe. But and and it took a while it was kind of a tailspin for a while I was. I wouldn't say I was depressed but I was pretty down about it and upset that this dream that I had didn't work out. And it took me some time to sort of regroup and certainly being in college and and having those experiences helped a lot where I was exposed to different things and ended up really being mentored in a in a wonderful way by Dr Crowson. In the field of psychology. And helping me take something that You know was a big disappointment in not being able to further my baseball career and actually turn it into something. We're now my mission is to help. Other people have what they need to be successful. Because I felt like maybe I missed out on some things for sure. I miss out on some things. I didn't understand the psychology. I didn't understand the process of figuring out how to get seen and recruited and go to college and play baseball. I didn't I don't understand any of that. I didn't have that opportunity so I wanna make sure that the players that I have a chance to come in contact with have what they need to reach their goals whether or not they do. It ends up being on them. But I don't WanNa be the reason that they don't get there and that's really important so that that changed my whole outlook on life but it took some soul searching and sometimes of just you know like what am I gonNa do you know. And there's no like easy way is not like okay. Do these three steps and it works out you need to. You need to go there. You need to think about what it is you want and realize that you know as my friend David Roth for. Who's ex-navy seal said that you have more than one mission in life the mission changes and for me that Dreamer. That mission changed at age. Nineteen where base? No baseball was no longer an option as as a player and I had to figure out what I was going to do and I found a new mission that was to help other athletes and help coaches. And that's something I truly love and enjoy and that's probably where a lot of the passion comes from because you know I hate to see people miss out on an opportunity at least have the chance to be successful.

Speaking of helping people a lot of coaches talk about being able to see something special and a player that does eventually make it. Do you find that. It's easy to to to see that with With players that you work with are you able to see whether their mental skills are above and beyond someone that potentially does not make it? I think I can see the outliers. Pretty well. The people who just stand out but probably most people can one of the one of the things I think we fall. Prey to his as coaches is believing that we know. Who'S GONNA make it? And who's not and if you go back through history of looking at drafting or selection processes were not very good at determining and identifying. Who's GonNa make an WHO's not? It's really a numbers game to be honest. You you make enough choices. You'RE GONNA hit on somebody right so and not to others a lot of people out there that do this work and there's a lot of good people out there but it's really challenging to no no of someone can can do this at the highest level but what I will say is the thing that you look for. I is to someone have the passion to do tennis to do. The whatever given initiative sport activity it is and that is something that you you can see in person as you spend time with them I think it's a fallacy to think that you can go watch a player once or twice a tournament and thank. You have a figure it out you know. Thirteen fourteen year old player. Once you get to know someone I think you can start to understand better than this person may be has the building blocks of something pretty special but it needs to be now nurtured and developed and that in my mind you know there's not many players is not many. Serena's there's not many rodgers out there so but there's a lot of great players who developed through the pathway right and we wouldn't have known at thirteen but we know now
UN health agency leads collaborative bid to get 135 countries ready for COVID-19
"This is Matt Wells at US News. Well if you're an avid follower of curve in nineteen developments you may have wondered what the phrase PCR equipment means. Well it stands for polymerase chain reaction which is the process that labs use to check with someone with cub in nineteen symptoms has the new current a virus after taking a medical swap usually from both nostrils in line with World Health Organization voice to countries to test as many cases of suspected. Infection is possible the race is on to find enough. Pc MACHINES FOR EVERYBODY. And that's where poll molinaro comes in. He's the cool calm collected head of the -gistically the WHO which with other EU partners is part of a major new initiative to help kit out one hundred and thirty five countries trying to see off the pandemic. He's been talking to you and uses Daniel Johnson. So right now. It's trying to get US access to products that are in extremely short supply because of very high demand and be able to get access to those markets collectively on behalf of lowering committing come countries a quiet financed by and move those things to a platform from which we can deliver via aircraft managed by. W and others to the countries where those things are needed. How many countries are we talking about so it depends on the type of on what product I think unless count where anywhere between one hundred twenty one hundred thirty five. We all know that. There's massive demand and not enough supply for face masks gloves. But what's the other equipment that you really trying to get hold of in? Massive numbers diagnostic tests different types of high throughput automated or manual. Pr Systems is critical then in biomedical. It's mainly around provisions of oxygen so oxygen concentrator 's oxygen manufacturing machines ventilators CPAP machines oxygen giving set any sort of mass. That go with it. So it's the PCP around the protection for the health workers lab workers. It's the diagnostics to be able to identify intest who is infected and then for those unfortunate enough to hit the clinical frontline. Is the equipment needed to treat them? And where exactly is it going to go first? How do you prioritize need well? It's difficult so we have developed a model based on epidemiology based on a number of inputs that we make for each country on the attack rate that they're currently facing how many cases they have and then from that we get an estimation of how many bed spaces they would need if they were moving to a clinical environment and that also putting in terms of what other percentages of mild severe severe critical cases that we're experiencing averaged out so it is a little bit of a and had to be done with modeling at the same time. We have a matrix. Who is issued an updates regularly on the various risks and vulnerabilities of countries? Of course we also compare that to current case count and the rate of spread in each country to try and get a sense of where we should be going. I and with numbers. And let's just talk about demand for second you were saying in an earlier press conference that demand is one hundred to two times above normal totally unprecedented stuff. So is this a significant enough measure bringing together enough you and agencies and Non Union partners to make a real difference. Well it's what we can do. So certainly we start off with bringing our partners into the shop and coordinating and working with them in terms of trying to bring together the volumes and the financing that we can collectively get hold off and then approach markets which we have. I mean different. Entities have different experience in different markets. So we try and use what we're strong collectively at. And that I think just gives us a more coordinated approach again beginning off on those elements we work closely with so assist the UN agencies and then some of our larger NGO partners which have long term standing relationship and organizations like the Global Fund and financing institutions like the World Bank like Bill Melinda Gates Foundation to be able to frontload or bridge financing for us to acquire some of these quantities. But with the best will in the world when border start closing and country start hanging onto the food end-equipment that they need to withstand this cove in nineteen new corona virus pandemic. How do you overcome those barriers? And the concern I have is that the World Food Program said that does delays at the borders yourself mentioned that to UNICEF macy's some difficulties in distributing vital vaccines so. What's the prognosis. Wants the outlet? It's difficult and it is a big challenge. Now what we do is we do have a long track. Record of being able to circumvent some of these bottlenecks where humanitarian and disaster. The districts professionals. It's not new to us. It's something we do as bread and butter and we'll continue to do so now with the infrastructure and assets we put in place managed by WFP. That's another partner that we've worked with a lot in the past to to reach areas that are difficult to reach and then around the difficulties with I mean. Who has country representation across the globe so does UNICEF so does the U N D peace within entire UNC system? There are ways that we can advocate within certain governments. And if you see some of these export restrictions doing clued generally provision for exemption for humanitarian and medical movement. It's not always easy to navigate the exemption and it takes persistence and you do have to jump through hoops but again. Persistence is something where we do. Where you sit and so we push forward that way now where we get availability we will. We'll address any issues we we don't face it in all the old country. We do get specific exemptions that negotiated and we do see movements it could be more and certainly will continue pushing for that again with access to a schedule sort of cargo facility provided by WIP and with the know how that collectively we have as you and agencies and NGOs. We can circumvent this. And I guess very last question to you. There's reports that air travel is going to cost fifty percent more now presumably. That will have the same sort of knock on impact on your work. So how will you manage to keep the show going if you like? Well I think when it comes to putting back the passenger networks online. Obviously they're not gonNA be able to fill their planes with people so certain even when we're planning for the WFP passenger service you know. They're not going to be able to have a complete fool plane. I mean especially not at the beginning that going to need to be distant so any airline company is going to have to factor that in now will that same price go onto the freight animal of that that goes underneath the plane. Maybe it will be cheaper. You're not actually loading many twenty or thirty kilos sets of luggage into the hold. Maybe frees up some capacity full cargo on some of these things. One never knows certainly when we were trying to find. F. Rate from China when Chinese manufacturing was down it was very cheap when Chinese manufacturing came back online. It becomes more expensive. It's just the nature of supply and demand over capacity and under-capacity so as these airlines come online maybe a freight we'll get cheaper on certain routes certain segments.

"We're going to have the new. Unc Men's basketball coach. Steve Smiley on we had the former UNC. Men's basketball coach. Jeff Lender on the program Thursday. Who is now the head coach of the Wyoming Cowboys? Steve Smiley Co. I thought I honestly I feel like it was a no brainer. I don't he was one of those where you didn't need to open up this wide. Sir I mean he was with the program for a while and you know depends a lot of circles. He's talked very highly of so I'll be. I'll be excited to talk to him. We've gone back and forth via social media for a few years now but we've never actually had him on the program so I look forward to chatting with him a bit and building on that relationship in the next couple of years. I also want to ask. You know the the challenge. Everybody's in in this challenge right now. You know whether you're coach. It's been there for ten years or this is your first time as the head coach for a certain team. These are tough times tough times. Everybody for bigger reasons right but in the sports aspect it is a difficult situation. And that's where that's where I'd like to see. You know what his thoughts are and how. That's how he's operating. How do you jump into that coaches that were hired before the corona virus stuff at least got a hold or a handle on their situation? Guys like Steve. Smiley was hired last week in the midst of all of this so it did provide at least a positive story for us here and I think you know. Listen keep your eyes out because the the NBA's tried to get creative. They're going to try to figure this out at some point again. It's not going to be next. I would not imagine it's going to be next month. You're not looking at April twenty third. That's when the playoffs start anyway. And that's a tough side too because Colfax the twenty third day of March and were were really approaching that we'd be getting so close to the playoffs and that's why you know. Last night would have been nuggets Toronto. That's why it was my bad story of the good. The bad the ugly and it's it's difficult because we would have been in store for some very meaningful basketball games for nice stretch and it would have let us right into the playoffs in a pretty pressure-filled scene for the nuggets. Everybody expected Denver to be a you know. Get past that first round and actually move past the second. I think. I honestly believe that realistic expectations at least Denver Wisely Colorado Wise. We're saying that this team has to get past the second round. They have to get to the Western Conference finals. Which would have been very difficult to do. Because either way you line up you would. You would have had to get past the clippers or the Lakers depending on how we said and more than likely you would have. Had you pass the clippers play Houston and Rowan play the clip around two? And then you move on. You play the Lakers. That's likely how it would have worked out but that one that we will never know what the real situation was. But you know the other thing you have to think about. I mean if the Lakers were good how good would Lebron James B? With a lot of time off you know where he can show. He's everybody's fresh now. All those injuries we talked about. Hey this guy's out for three months. He's missed the playoffs. I mean you look at a guy like use of Norwich for Portland. He was. We didn't really have a timetable. We were kind of starting to get one and then suddenly we in the season. Well it's been two two weeks already is in three weeks. It's been slow and fast at the same time but we get to that point where. It's okay Portland suddenly is going to get healthy and they might be true contender. So how how? Good with the nuggets have been. I mean this is the what if game I mean. We always play that in sports but this is truly the what if game how I mean. How many different things do you hear? You know where it's like. Oh well what if? The broncos was selected this guy in the first round. This this is truly the what if game and I want to get into more of that but we want to step aside because we're going to get the brand new. Unc Bears Men's basketball coach.

Regina A. Mason: Searching for William E. Grimes
"Jimmy Mason is a remarkable woman. She spent fifteen years of a life researching alive for great great. Great Grandfather William Grimes with nothing to go on the connection to the underground railroad. She spent countless hours in libraries reading books. Looking at Michael Film and Census Records Grind was changes. Oh when he was sold away from the arms of grieving mother to a far plantation hair grew up friendless and mother list apparently no surrogate slave family or loved ones to embrace him. No one even to look after him. Grimes was the first person to go through slavery in the South and write about it. This was the first time cousin. Slavery exposed onto the spectrum of one who had lived in and he was the first author to write about the harsh realities of the north. Despite the narrative of his big F- freedom land. Recently in Black America spoke with China rant to produce of Gina's journey the site for William Grimes and Regina e Mason on today's program. We conclude our conversation and so my co-producer contacted his agent his agency and they sent it over and to my astonishment he came back and was like I'll do it and it was more than a reasonable rate and which also made us faint and the next thing I was out in In Hollywood in in Melrose actually at his recording studio and and directing keep David in the booth which was mind blowing to say the least and he was astonished to see you know me and and and you know given my age and done and being an African American male to be directing this film so that that really made him happy when he saw that he just was was really blown away with it but he blessed the project came in. He did the most amazing work on it and it really just elevated genus story and Grind Story to a whole new level so we will be internally thankful to him for that and every once in a while I do have talks with them still. He's just a really good person and I think he's a studier of history. He's very big in the voice over world. He's an Emmy Award Winning Boys Actor. Who's done a ton of Ken? Burns documentaries so he was really into and this is his thing so I think he really enjoyed working on this project and we were better for Ms Mason ominously. This was labor intensive. This is way before Google and everything else. So what gave you that consistent drive to want wanting to complete this project William Grimes himself you know when you read his narrative all that. He endured life to the cruelty the abuse at every turn. He was reminded that he was nothing but he never bought into the status quo. In fact he defied the status quo. Every turn just the fact that he had the notion that he was capable of writing his own story without any assistance from white people speaks to who he was and how self assured he was so his example of perseverance and endurance gave me the will to to just carry on it. And see this per- This project to to the end and I'm speaking of the book project and I do have to say this once. I started digging into this story and realizing that no other scholars and really looked at it. In fact when I went looking for any body of research that was done on William Grimes it was so inaccurate and they were historians to just took liberty to to write about this man having not done any research whatsoever and then I came across the Work of Dr William L. Andrews scholar from UNC UNC Chapel Hill University of North Carolina Chapel Hill extraordinary expert on early African. American autobiography. I came across his book to tell of Free Story and he studies the slave narratives and included in his body of work which is sort of like the scholars Bible. Today he wrote about William Grimes not a whole lot more than I had found those about four pages of work and I needed to make sense of that genre of literature that I really knew nothing about so I reached out to him and he at the time was the only living collar who that who I could talk to and we sort of built a relationship every now and then I would send him information about what I found a William Grimes and he one day wrote me back and he says look the work you've done has to be preserved in some fashion or another then. He approached the idea of partnering to do a book. Because I knew that bill knew that I I wanted to bring this story to light this new scholarship that had never been done before on William grinds and he definitely was the right person because obviously he had studied grimes he had written about grinds and there was really no one else that I could associate myself with and he was the man when it came to early African American autobiography and so we partnered and We developed what we call all. What has been the authoritative edition of the life of William Grimes runaway slave? What was it like your feelings when you you read his narrative and then understood that your great great grandfather was just not an ordinary slave Well I WANNA say this William Grunt was an ordinary man. Who didn't extraordinary thing? I want to move to realize we may not have those narrative is out there. We may not be able to to. We can maybe able to find our ancestors who had been enslaved on In plantation records or slave inventories. And all you see our names sadly those voices we will never know their voice or their humanity because the story doesn't exist so to find this first person account of slavery and by the way we them grams. It's the first person of color to go through slavery in the south. Handle right about it so for the first time we got to hear about southern slavery from the perspective of the Sleigh and not from the slave owner himself so it's a different kind of storing. It's more authentic and true in terms of the experience so to recover this and then associate myself to this narrative. I realize that all of his virtues are inside of me so when you say William Grimes was not the ordinary slave he definitely speaks for those who didn't have a voice and I believe that. None of the slaves bought into the enslaved narrative that was supposed to be their destination and ultimately was their destination or a. Yes. I believe that they all had that will to be free. And and in their own circumstances they asserted whatever power they had in a rebellious way. And so to know though that William Grimes was able to make out of slavery and to tell his story is huge it is it's just incredibly empowering and I realized that again that his virtues existed me and he was my example every step of the way when I wanted to give up when I was faced with all kinds of closed doors I realized that he faced those same and he was told no over and over again but he found a way to get it done and so I I it brings me great. Pride that this enslaved man who never bought into the status quo live within

Seventy coming into the season you know sitting at a bar with a bunch. Acc network people and all of a sudden the clemson North Carolina Games. And everybody's trying to figure out what everybody's why are people yelling at this game and what we're watching is Clinton who was. Oh in fifty nine. When playing at North Carolina they get their first win and overtime at hill standing around. Everybody they are stunned. After the game Roy Williams say quote. I've had some great Great moments as a coach. And I'd say that right now. This is my lowest one because losing this game was my fault if I die tomorrow. Twenty years from now that'd be the biggest regret. I have in thirty two years as coach because these kids really need to win and their coach. Let them down today. Was that really the lowest moment of Roy Williams career. I mean it's hard to argue that it wasn't I mean not only. Do they lose at home for that one? I mean they had a ten point. Lead in the final couple of minutes in Clemson was able to close the gap in force over time in and get the win. And if you look back Roy Williams head coaching career. A this is by far the worst season. But it's the first time finishing below five hundred it's only the third time missing the NCAA tournament since he became a head. Coach in nineteen eighty. Eight and one of those was his first season at Kansas. Thirty two years ago so he hasn't had a ton of bad moments during his head. Coaching career to be the first North Carolina team to lose at home to Clemson and the way they did it. Losing that ten point lead you know. It is hard to argue that it is the lowest moment of his college career but the highest moment ever for Clemson basketball. But I'm just saying Clemson Band so give me a little perspective in your mind on. How Accomplished Roy Williams North Carolina basketball is and as a result? How strange that makes this season. Yeah it's you know I don't I don't know if we're really SORTA gets the national credit. He probably deserves for how consistent how successful he's been any people talk about. My suggestion is the greatest coach. And you know that's well deserved also but ruins has been argued better than him in the ACC for most of the past decade and a half a going into this year he had won at least a share of three. The last four Ac regular season titles. I think he's one nine Acc titles in his time at Carolina. He's been the nine final force is. He's won three National Championships. He's been outrageously successful for for more than thirty years. And that's why I think people thought going into the year. Even with all the question marks Roy Williams going to figure out because at the end of the day he always figures out and and I think that we just sort of expected him to kind of piece it together and you know even even in some down years over his time at Carolina. They still found ways to win. Twenty five games and and gets the NCAA tournament. So I think people thought he'd be able to do it again and so that's why again. This season is just so surprising to Carolina fans from a national perspective in January Roy Williams was hosting his weekly radio show and said. This is the least gifted team. I've ever coached so jeff. Did that affect his relationship with the team. I mean if you if you look at the The public quotes coming out at that time from guys on the team their reaction to it or Mondo So they use it as motivation Brandon Robinson. He seemed he kind of said. It doesn't matter not paying attention to it. And he almost wants to prove that Roy Williams was wrong and obviously they did not continue to win and make him forget those quotes. So I do think that's going to be one of the quotes that Roy Williams. Maye publicly that people are gonNA remember about this season. So my question about that comment though is Roy. Williams says that without ever acknowledging his own part in recruiting the least gifted team. He's ever coached. How much of that lays his feet? I think.

"I don't know that I've ever had a team be outscored. Fifteen zero and fast-break points. Their effort was much better than our effort. And then we still had it there and we couldn't couldn't make any shots even around the basket so it's a frustrating but It's it's what it's been quite a bit of this season. That was North Carolina head coach. Roy Williams after Saturday's lost to arch rival Duke the North Carolina Tar heels winners of six National Championships. The school produced names like Vince. Carter James Worthy and Michael Jordan had been downright bad this year today as the ACC tournament kicks off in Greensboro UNC. Enters has the lowest overall. See how did they fall so far so fast and who is to blame. I'm Jason Fitz. In from Unicom's it's Tuesday march ten this is Espn daily presented by Adt Jeff Bordello. I'm a little shook. North Carolina finished the regular season. They lose to do because that's fine we're used to that but they're the lowest seed in the ACC tournament North Carolina. So some how you would view this season for the tar heels. I mean they're arguably the most disappointing team in the country. Jeff Portillo is a college basketball insider for ESPN. And I know we have to take some other factors into account with injuries. And Karl Anthony and things like that but you know this was a preseason top ten team that like you said is going to be the bottom seed in the ACC tournament in the ACC is not goodness here. It's a it's a pretty down league you know. There are Miami. Nbc in Wake Forest Pittsburgh. None of those teams are very good and Carolina is at the bottom of all that and to me. That's shocking you know. This is one of the best of all time blueblood like I said a top ten preseason team and four months later five later. They're the worst team in the ACC. It's one of the bigger stories in college football this season and I think you could really make the case that there are the biggest disappointment in college hoops so let's go back to October. Preseason rankings come out North Carolina's in the top ten. They're sitting at number nine refresh everybody in what the real expectations were coming into this season for this team. I mean they a lot of guys from last year but they did bring in what people expected was an impact recruiting class was led by Karl Anthony Centerpiece of Roy Williams retooling effort. It's chole Anthony. Going the top freshman in the country making his debut tonight from of a raucous crowd here that the dome he was expected by pretty much everyone to be the most productive freshman in the country. That's how he wasn't high school that's where he was on the scene. He was a guy that was going to put up big points. He was gonNA put a big assist numbers. He's going to rebound and he was going to win games. That's just that's just what he was at the high school level and people expected him to to be that same player Carolina and it. Kinda set up perfectly for him because he was able to come in and this was a team that didn't have any real goto guys coming back. So they said hey collapsed. And you're getting the ball from day one and you're gonNA lead us and you know it kind of looked good. You know in the first game of the season. He was terrific. He had thirty four points. Eleven rebounds five assists debut for coal. Anthony lost a lot of stars to the NBA. After last season with the go one superstore Chambal. Whom the feeling was that? You know this team is going to be okay. Even despite the losses and along with him they brought into Grad transfer. Is that you know. We're probably two of the five or seven best. Grad transfer is in the country was Christian Keeling from Charleston southern just NPR's from William and Mary and and that added some experience at its veteran leadership and combined with a couple of other guys are Mondo Baker was a five star recruit garrison brooks was a two year starter download so i. I just think that people thought you combine the newcomers with the guys returning and even though there weren't any stars coming back from last year's team there was enough here to to compete for an ACC title and Roy Williams has done this before where his team is is written off a little bit in the preseason and under rank behind teams like Duke and he finds a way to win and that's just what he does and and I think people expected him to do it again with the guys coming in and coming back well so now you've got a team that has preseason expectations they get into. The season was the first time this season there was the first real sign of concern that the season might not go the way some had hoped. I think it was a couple of things I think one was even when they were winning the game. They won their first five games of the season. But even some of those the Notre Dame win the Alabama win. There were some signs of. Is this team going to be as good as we thought were Williams? I you get the sense. He hasn't loved all aspects of his teams. Play here today. You know he has. He has not name barely beat. Notre Dame eleven point margin was it. It wasn't addictive. How close the season opener was against Notre Dame so I think there was. Okay let's give it time. Let's let Cole Anthony. And the other freshman get acclimated and this team will figure it out but they lose by twenty five at home 'til Ohio state to start December. You know then they lose that. Virginia you know losing effort gene is not not a usually a big concern. This is not a vintage Virginia team and I think most people realize that at that time and then they lose to Wofford. They ended up finishing below five hundred in the southern conference. Terriers come to Chapel Hill and knock off a top twenty five North Carolina squad. And that's when the you know the eyebrow start raising what's going on with his team are they poised to be this massive disappointment and obviously once call. Anthony gets hurt. The wheels fall off from their breaking news. Call Anthony out four to six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery to repair a partially torn meniscus. Well at that point you know maybe things are a little bit concerning. But they're going to get two. Acc conference play. You said it the ACC not the best conference in the world so they get to the ACC schedule. How's that go form? You look at their schedule and you said okay they can. They can weather the storm three straight home games in. Acc play against Georgia Tech Pit Clemson and they had games against Pittsburgh Virginia Tech Miami even a bad UNC team or even a a mediocre UNC. Team could go six in Owen. Those games it was kind of the the bottom half of the league and they went one and five losing the first five games of that stretch. Seventy nine seventy seven double-overtime Virginia tech knocking off North Carolina. I think that was almost getting the end. When you look back the schedule what would be the one moment that sort of pushed everything over to the point in return honestly I think it was after Columbia comes back a long ways away. Eleven Games without call Anthony but he will play tonight. Yeah the five hundred. Unc team suddenly. Jay has a lot of juice and he'd be Miami. Nc State then call and he comes back for a home game in Boston College and you know. They weren't very good at the time but they tended ten three and six in the ACC and you know the the narrative was kind of okay. If Cole Anthony Comes back the committee will look at them and say you know with call. Anthony this is an NCAA tournament team. He's going to be on the roster in the NCAA tournament they're going to factor that in so I think people started wondering can. Unc string together. Some wins and make a late run and in his first game back. You lose at home to Boston. College straight three other time. He's spoiled return. I think that was the sign that it's not going to happen so that's not. Obviously the only epic moment we all continue to think about from the season tickets back to the first game between North Carolina and Duke. The Duke Game was a game that that could have turned things around at least changed the narrative about Carolina and to lose in that fashion. Another late blown lead. Losing to your biggest rival do comes back not to be Carolina to me. That was that was a really low mon it just because it it could have been really a season changing moment for Carolina and the way it happened it just it kind of sent them even further down into the season purgatory.

"So when did this investigation really begin well I think you have to go back to the massive UNC academic fraud scandal that derisive Joke About College athletes taking courses and basket weaving that would be a step up compared to some of what's now ben reveal over the better part of two decades more than fourteen hundred athletes at UNC basketball football and other student athletes were enrolled in these paper classes through African American Studies it was a way to keep you know a lot of their high profile athletes eligible to play and in the aftermath of that academic scandal a whole bunch of documents were released one point eight million pages yes amazing when you think about it's a treasure trove of documents and so after this treasure trove of documents was released there's a guy who got very interested in them who you spoke with for the story this is the first time anyone's really had a chance to really behind the curtain to see how major collegiate sports organization is run well ten tattoos is a an answer a professor at the University of Utah is kind of a data detective as an economist in a forensic statistician and a man with a real interest in sort of interdepartmental activities at universities he was drawn to those documents this this might sound crazy but she ate did a lot of them by hand so just by scrolling through these documents because it's difficult to understand what to look for first Ted really did not he was gonna find he was really went searching for relationships between an athletic department in a university hoping to get emails and and in a paper trail as to how they interact but in the end he found a completely different story Ted discovers it's really his first big discovery is that the same academic support program that was steering athletes into the bogus classes was also having them tested for learning disabilities and to be clear this neuropsychological testing is is common among college athletic departments but then you move ahead to an email that he discovers any details however two year period incoming scholarship football players and women's basketball players at UNC they had found sixty one percent diagnosis rate of Adhd and so I was blown away by that number sixty one percent this unlike any number that I had never seen before in the general population add or learning disability is somewhere between five and ten percent college athletes considered to be somewhere around seven or eight percent and this guy you're period it's sixty one percent of those that are tested so that really begins to Pique his interest what happens when a college student is diagnosed with a learning disability or Adhd what resources are provided for them because of the American disabilities act a diagnosis of ADHD or L. D. allowed for special accommodations including personal no takers class on time tests and I think as importantly or more importantly prescriptions for stimulant medication such as adderall or Ritalin which will help you focus F- students into a students by giving them stimulants however these drugs don't make you smarter but they make you feel smarter make you feel more capable that helps influence your focus when you feel more self confident about what you're going to do you have an easier time doing it so a diagnosis of L. D. or ADHD North Carolina particularly among the student athletes and in particular specifically the football program without question in came with an added advantage also spoke with a woman named Mary Willingham for this story Mary Willingham is at the center of the scandal that has rocked UNC this campus and community she was the whistle blower but Mary Willingham was the chief whistleblower in the massive UNC academic fraud scandal I decided to speak out because I was telling people on the inside for so long and no one was listening she was the woman really you know broke the door down she also happened to be a person that you know worked with the neuropsychologist who were responsible for every ooh learning disabled or ADHD diagnosis at UNC. We are hired to make sure that these athletes student athletes get all the support that they need to stay eligible so yes there's a lot of pressure from the coaches there's a lot of monitoring and of course the most talented athletes are the ones that we're going to worry about cried medication for L. D. or ADHD that's an extraordinarily high rate that's just one sort of window into being used in concussion research which opens up another sort of Pandora's box of issues and and one could say problems.

"One of the people I interviewed for this piece was Dr Sarah Shy yet who's ought to San Francisco and who's written two books on on ADHD learning disabilities. I have turned the mouse she was told Time and time again we need to do everything we possibly can to keep these kids eligible that was the key so diagnosed the VDI HD or L. D. was part and parcel one could argue of helping keeping these kids eligible and she talked about the most talented athletes getting the host attention is it safe to assume that many of the athletes who were diagnosed with ADHD and were prescribed medication were football players there is one document toutes uncovered that offered a clue and it showed that sixteen of the twenty three incoming UNC football players that seventy percent were all of this so I thought well something seems off here you know this is right that this is a huge problem and then he starts to look are those athletes.

"Tuesday. We had the shootings at UNC. The UNC shooter. Apparently targeted a specific table of people at least, according to one of the witnesses. As more fact start to become uncovered we still don't know at least has been released publicly a motive for that attack. But the accused UNC Charlotte shooter walked toward a particular table and began to fire at the people seated there, and that statement was quoted in a search warrant affidavit that the Charlotte MacLeod police filed hours after the shooting in the UNC classroom. The affidavit offers new details as to the shooting UNCC campus. Police officer Richard gun dagger. Entered the room to thirty six to the Kennedy building second floor after responding to a nine eleven call about a shooting. He found several people in the room, he yells to the occupants in the room and ask them to tell him who was doing the shooting and at the time the shooter himself apparently said he said at the time a subject in the room. I didn't him say identified himself as the shooter. And was taken into custody and Glock firearm recovered in a black leather bag located on his person containing multiple gun magazines. So there's a witness Joshua airs told police that he had been in the room to make a presentation when quote, a male subject slammed the door open and produced a pistol close quote. Air stated that the subject walked toward a particular table and began to fire at the people seated there, and at that point everybody began to flee the classroom, and it was apparent to airs that the subject targeted a specific table of people. Which I guess would make his statement is he was being led into see him pity headquarters. Make a little bit more sense when he said, I just went into his classroom and shot the guy. What we don't know is. What guy in other words are one of our two fatalities. Was that his target was Riley? How his target. Was. We don't know. So that's a development that came out today. Now up at UNC. They're trying to figure out in the aftermath. How will the campus? Remember, the victims and security efforts and criteria and all that kind of stuff. So they're still reviewing campus safety measures, and the can't really say at this point what will happen to the classroom where the two students were killed and another four were injured. Although that building is now open again and functioning. Not as a student classroom. But. They're not set on how to memorialize the two victims even. Even if online petitions are re renaming a building that's being constructed right now. Is gaining steam. I think what they want to there's a new building called. And there's the movement up. There is to name at the Howell Parlier after Ellis Parlier in Riley Howell, the two who were killed in the shooting building. So they're trying to determine what they're gonna do that way students and parents will see one change graduation this weekend. Where guests will be required to pass through metal detectors while they're entering an exiting campus. And Ellis Parlier in Riley Hal will receive a memoriam degrees at the ceremony on Saturday. And Emily hop is a graduating senior who was injured in the shooting during graduation at the college of liberal arts and sciences, and she'll be made a special presentation there, and that'll be pretty cool. That'll be very emotional earlier this week UNC set up two scholarship funds and honor of Parlier and Howell. And a third fundraising is for the victims. And their families has been set up and anything beyond that is kind of up to fourteen person remembrance commission. So there are over sixty six thousand people who have signed this online petition calling for the university to rename its recreation center after Jalan Parlier and construction of that is due to be complete this fall. And that wouldn't be surprised me. If that's what they do. That seems to be the early sentiment, but no concrete plans on that yet. The commission will also determine the future of Kennedy hall, which is academic and office building where the shooting took place. Exams and Kennedy have been canceled. But the building is up. It's now up and running and accessible to IT staff who will work there with a registered ID card..

Yeah, probable, right launcher decade UNC at East Carolina. God. Oh, Shiels can cook out on the line. East Carolina is legally like require UNC NC state are legally required to lose to East Carolina. Right. I mean, that's part of the arrangement. So silver chicken case. Far as I know. Yeah. I mean, that's so why. Why wouldn't that right this the this Carolina team was one of the worst seems horrible radar map for their defense just like made me laugh out loud because like it's not there. It's just like a bunch of dots right in the center. It's like a little bullseye that's called a stealthy. It looks like a map that a submarine captain looks at and says, well, we can't make it through their Jesus rice. Yeah, that was the funniest part of layer fidora talking about like the ties between football and like military performance. I'm like. Not much defense going on UNC by the way, got my wife at dicta to cheer wines by the way, just which no complaining mighty, but you're Wilson ACC fans chanting ACC right now the every time you do cook. The other next game of next name as UCF, which I think you know? Yeah, like even even with residuals of and under management, I think we can all agree. UCF eight new seek totally laws here right. Definitely. Next one, which I think you're gonna get funders agreed on this. That Pitt could be. Absolutely. But here's the other thing could also lose to you and say. This UNC rolls up ranked like number nine pits got him. Here's here's one. Here's why. Let's say pit beats Penn State week two, they will lose to you insane as a result, the law, pit demands balance in all things. The league of shadows is very clear on the league of shadows is all about pit. I was gonna say pit as like perfectly balanced as long as they're not playing Youngstown state. Correct that I was also going to say, don't tell pit what pit can can't or can't can't do. All right. Then the last two last two she had. These are totally plausible because you see has to go to Miami, and then they host a potentially dangerous Virginia Tech by the way that Virginia Tech UNC game, anybody wanna take over under with me. Guide on that has lost like eight defenders or something. Virginia. Player suiting up, right? What I'm pretty sure Alex Kirschner is like they're starting outside linebacker at this point. Almost start that seventy three point. We're only going up play. Employ. I mean, I'll watch. They can't. I mean, if they go and six, he's done. Right. I said if I mean in this scenario they probably get destroyed at Miami. Right, right, right. Hold on his before after Miami plays FSU. Thank good. Oh, it's a week before. So, yeah. Mine was gonna kill you and see. So I say, oh and five. And he's gone. They, they can't lose the snow. They're going to be there. The probably going to be a decent team, assuming they have twenty two starters. Can I? Can I give you the nightmare scenario though? If your UNC fan it doesn't want this. This is apparently worse than losing to see you. So so we'll know. Let's let's let's give him that. Let's say just go wanted five, right.
