"A stock token a stable value token backed by securities or any other virtual product that provides synthetic exposure to underlying securities. These products are subject to the securities laws and must work within our securities regime. That statement was notable because stable value token was a new term that he invented seemingly to give the sec the ability to regulate stable coins as was pointed out by numerous members of congress including tom emmer but the point is the point that i'm trying to make at least for this show is we have to also look at how he spoke about bitcoin. He said next. I want to turn to investment vehicles. Providing exposure to crypto assets such investment vehicles already exist the largest among them having been around for eight years worth more than twenty billion dollars also there are a number of mutual funds that invest in bitcoin futures on the chicago mercantile exchange. Cme i anticipate that there will be filings with regard to exchange traded funds. Etf's under the investment company act the investment company act provides significant investor protections given these important protections i look forward to the staff's review of such filings particularly if those are limited to these. Cme traded bitcoin futures in other words. He's basically saying that. Bitcoin futures were likely going to clear. The sec's muster now. This wasn't all sunshine and rainbows even for bitcoin is at the time. A lot of people said after that speech that it probably meant that a spot bitcoin. Etf was not getting approved. This year. stephen mcclurg the chief. Investment officer for valkyrie. Which has an active application with the sec for a bitcoin. Etf currently said. I think his comments are pretty clear. That appear spot bitcoin. Etf isn't coming soon and that futures products would potentially be considered. I think it's certainly going to direct our conversations in our product roadmap. He continued though. It's a really bizarre world where you can launch bitcoin. Etf and canada us people can buy it through their brokerages and you can create a usatf that includes canadian etf's but bitcoin etf isn't available in the us either way against the reaffirmed this position in prepared statements for financial times conference yesterday. Here's what coin desk wrote about it. Us sec chairman. Gary genzer reiterated his support wednesday for a narrow class of bitcoin exchange traded funds.

"To the finish line five k. Which is the us five championships. With god's i've sent emails on all three events Today so there's there's always something oh so exciting okay. So you mentioned that you've seen emails today for all three of those races for fifth avenue for the dash which by the way the dashes like my favorite favorite race. That's my five k. Pr so sweet. Spot in my heart And for the new york city marathon so typically. How far in advance do you start your job and do you begin. Assembling fields readies. Racists depends a lot of course on what the event is and where it fits in the whole athlete goal hierarchy right. I'm i'm realistic enough to know that. The new mount fifth avenue mile is not anybody's goal race. It's a fun hit out at the end of the season The new york mini ten k. Mastercard new york mini ten k. Probably not anybody's goal race but it can be a really important steppingstone something. They've gotta do later in the summer. Teeth marathons different right. That's the goal ray stats. That's what everybody's training for the whole second half of the year. Whatever so i would say that with something like the marathon We really begin things in the early spring and in a couple of the big cases and by may june were really rocking and we announced the entire field on august. Eighteenth or whatever it was this year so we are all done by then. And i would say having london in boston in tokyo all pushed to the spring this year. It probably forced us to get started on things a little earlier than we. Otherwise might have but that didn't being a good thing for us right fifth avenue mile. It's clear that there's there's no point in even were starting to work on that until after the olympic games this year right and generally with the with the dash the epidemic of the finnish side the usatf five state championships Post labor day right around the time. The fifth avenue mile is really cooking is a good time to to start conversations about that. So it does vary depending on on what the event is and where it fits into everybody's schedule in a year like this one which is i mean. How many times can we say unprecedented with the new york city marathon. The new york city marathon. Let's make it official. Are the other majors. That are happening this fall so you boston chicago london. All of them are those sort of competitors to you like. Are you all fighting for the you know i know. Best is obviously very subjective. But do you look. They are all trying to assemble their own pro fields and everyone wants the the buzzy s most exciting runners so to you. Is that.

"Okay now you're coming from oslo. Let's figure that out like it is that you that's lot some sometimes and it's obvious i admit that it's not always the most efficient use of my time but it's also We're we're a small team and we. We have to wear a lot of hats We have a great relationship with the united airlines and so that helps a lot. When we're we're figuring out some of this stuff. But yeah i've i've become in some ways a sort of a travel expert When you need to get to From from some place to new york city and the best way to do that I i've got a lot of experience them. So what will make the fifth avenue. Mouthy new balance fifth avenue mile. What will make that a successful day for you obviously want the race to go off without without a hitch and because there's a broadcast component where we're live streaming via the event on usatf tv You know as long as i don't get in the way of a camera and things go off on time and the broadcast looks great. That's that's what successful. Of course we want all of our participants from from the kids that are running in the kitty way up through the the pro athletes that are running we want everybody have a great experience but but you know as long as we get those details right That's that's what success for me. That's what that's what i wanna do. I i know how hard these athletes train and i want to do. My part to make the event as good as as they are worthy of worthy of their participation. So that's what. That's what i would consider a success now. This race in particular comes with all kinds of unique challenges. What comes to mind for me is the timing of it because it is usually the second weekend in september. That's a long season for a lot of these track athletes. Especially we're coming. We're in an olympic year. Can you speak to that a little bit about assembling the professional field in a normal year when it's not you know whether it's world championships or olympics. What does that look. I mean. I just think of like all the people that i was like. Oh they'll probably be running again when we're talking i don't know the profiled so i'm thinking like all we're going to see emma coburn per year. Jenny simpson all the the usual faces. We see and then it's like oh shoot..

A lotta lotta tummy. Tucks out the streets knows sometimes scam so use. This are you. Are you a believer in. Are you a believer in or you know the quick fix or obviously straight disciplined mindset changing your diet and all that which. I'm with you with that are you are you. How do you feel about folks. Do whatever makes you happy whenever you could afford to do but if you do that there is a something that has to go along with. If you're gonna spend money to get to that position then maintain it. But i don't do what you wanna do. That makes you happy. You feel good doing that do that. Who am i to say you ask me to pay for it or anything like that do you. And it's all about how you feel and if you're going make you feel good. Look good then do you folks there. They're start working out or doing and sydney did complete her challenge. God bless her but some folks and start working on you know what. Let me just go. just take stomach. Let some people. And then i'll just go on with my day but that's what they wanna do who say that they can't do that. And that is what you wanna do. And that is how you're going to get the look that you want then didn't do that but i can assure you that i always say you. Can you can fool the whole world that a pair of life and get passed on the back as you pass but your true we war would be hard to get paid if you pick the person the glass. There's no need for turkey we do you but don't trick yourself does maintain and continue to try and be better and it's also what the talented and it's a mindset but you know so it's a mindset so you've gotta get mine frame of mind to be with a handle everything coming at you need to love. Love your stuff no matter how you looking. That's what's important. And i got one last question last question. We don't give you the last word that you get everything out there for the twenty eight day challenging. We appreciate you for coming in and thank you and thank you. Tiffany as well. We appreciate you. We've been fighting in here. Grasslands from time to time sports because the young lady. was disqualified for the olympics smoking weed and sydney. What was her name again. Jesus and i was in here. The way gotta go she. No back and forth in social media was like oh you know they should let you know run bottle level by and i'm like it's not fair to the other runners and we were fighting about this. What is your view on the weed. The marijuana we was we when i used to smoke it back in the day. What viewpoint on the athlete with just marijuana. Okay being disqualified from the olympics. This is how it is in certain areas in this country is okay to do little is doing areas is not in. Our sport is not so. If you're gonna do something that is against the rules and bylaws usa track and field. Then you get disqualified. Could you say that one more time to mike didn't work if you say people don't gonna say by lose regulations that are set in our by laws and so for usatf it is illegal to have those substances and your body one. And i think that She is young and so and her team needs to support her and get her on a straight now. So these incidents wouldn't come up so even though you say well you know a mother pass or whatever the reasons ought to do something. Right is wrong our sport. That is wrong. So i don't do not accept her being able to compete because she did something that was wrong however it was right and and You know she did it and one thing same thing with the steroids and other drugs. Same thing with cocaine. Whatever it is if it's not legal in our sport or in the us olympic well. You can't do it no matter how upset people have a lot of hardships. All the people losing their homes with the storms and floods and damaging. So everyone's going to start doing things that are kind of productive and that illegal because you had a hardship so we have to kind of pull back and support her in that. It was a trying time but her camp. She is a top tier athlete. They need to kind of really randall. Bitten to director. So these situations won't happen in the future where you remind me a real holomisa to sense. It all comes together. Thanks for sharing that sending you gotta be well. I i'm definitely. I hope the young lady said next received all of it so so i just think they got you know i understand that what you know. You can't do it. But i think that that it shouldn't be something that's on the banned substances list. Not my thing is like why is it even on there because okay so why why. Why should i no. I'm saying why those wide zoo they have because they know because they just added. I think in two thousand eighteen marijuana wasn't always on the banned substances so it for for the usa so it's like why is it even.

"Anyway i don't know nothing else really went through my head besides abby and then i just tried to do what she did which was get up and finish and Yeah i mean. I tried to catch people and there was really nothing else going through my mind until across the finish line and i knew i had felt my knee pop when i fell and so i just thought i'm very hurt and i was really really scared So the the fall wasn't necessarily painful and finishing the race wasn't ever a question. But really once i crossed the finish line. I thought i don't know if i can run. I don't know what's going to happen wasn't even crying necessarily about falling. I was just like. I think i'm pretty hurt right now So the first thing. I did with kind of try to get through The mix zone and i was with l. e. Thank goodness shoes there with me. Because i was telling her i'm like i think that i just really hurt my knee and then found the doctor immediately and yeah that was kind of it was all pretty chaotic to be honest And then i got to the usatf staff and they didn't evaluation in assured me that it wasn't as bad as I maybe thought that it was and tried to just sort of get it under control. So if i did get like pushed into the final i would at least be able to compete and so We just did a lot of work on my ankle and knee and tried to ensure that it wasn't a severe injury and set me up as best as i could for the next round Yeah that at that point. I was just in the hands of the usatf staff who were incredible. If it wasn't for some of the people who helped me there. I for sure would not have been able to run because they did a ton of work to help me race in the final. So did you immediately know that you could petition for a spot in the final since that fall was not your fault. Did you know immediately like let me just take care of my body. I'm not worried. I know it'll be in the final like did you know that would be or. Did you know that you could do that and did you. Were you concerned about it. No i really got point again. Like i was just trusting the staff who is there to help me finish the race and joe is concentrated on other people who were racing after me have the final after my semi so i really and i really came back to the practice track. Didn't see him until much later. And i just went straight to the. Usatf tents and coach holloway was there and he reassured me and of course. Having my college coach there is the as one of the head. Coaches of the team was incredible in so he just assured me and said i did what i what i could do and gave me some words of encouragement and then i received a call from another support staff individual who assured me that they were petitioning and i mean i thought again like i was so worried about my leg that i didn't even know what was going on in regards to anything performance based it was just m i o. K. and received the call that they were going to essentially petition. And which. I've never been involved in something like that like. I had absolutely no clue that that was happening. And then it was. Just you did your best. You got up and you finished and all we can ask for you to have done that. Which was your job. And now we're going to do our job and i just got on a massage table. An was getting work done and then received the call again from the same person. Tim weaver and he said Great news cory great job. You did what you had to do. And you'll be racing the final and so to be honest. I really didn't have to stay do anything. i think. They just looked at the race. In the way that everything happened I guess consider your position and consider not sure what else and that's kind of how that decision is made. So i don't have to really say anything but yeah that's it. You know. as much as me to be honest. I just know i fell. And then that was. I got up and i was really So what were the next twenty four hours like before you raced again. Both physically and emotionally emotionally. I was okay. I think that's one thing that I can usually pretty much go with the flow when it comes to that kind of stuff and i'm also pretty okay with running Through things which is sometimes a good thing in maybe not always a good thing. But i could accept like okay. I'm going to be in pain. I'm okay with that I don't wanna do anything risky if it's going to be a detriment to my longevity i'm not sure if that's worth it but Based on the evaluation that had from a couple people they seemed pretty confident that it wasn't my meniscus which was my fear And instead it was definitely some soft tissue damage but more I had hyper-extended my leg and sprained my ankle. So can you run on it. We'll see so the next day Didn't cool down. i couldn't jog. I tried to couldn't run My ankle was just so angry. I guess it had just been bent in a way that at. I've never sprained an ankle either. And so it was just like the first time some things for me and just sort of not sure how to measure what's okay and what isn't so couldn't cool down and woke up the following day and Couldn't really get out of bed. My ankle and my ankle was really the thing at that point. That was the worst. And when i finally did it was like it wasn't pretty And i went to whole day. Just sort of letting my body loosen up And walking a little bit slowly then finally getting to where i felt. Okay walking around and in the evening i tried running And i jogged with emma and it didn't feel good Again my ankle was like very swollen and so every step was just like heavy and uncomfortable and that was again wasn't mentally too concerned. It was just like i'll be fine tomorrow. This is this is just how i feel today. I'll be fine tomorrow and a lotta times on race day even if there is something that doesn't feel right it seems to somehow go away and so i woke up on race day and Was positive and in a good head. Space didn't do a preemie of any kind and then got to the track and did my warm up and felt okay felt decent and went to my her stride since the final are since the semi and had had a fair amount of pain but was aware of it but wasn't concentrating on it and that was just the way it was. It wasn't at any point. I didn't feel sorry for myself. I wasn't worried about it was just okay. This is kind of the situation So just compartmentalizing. What that was and i can look back on it now and be honest about it but in the moment i was definitely very focused and not worried but i mean the reality is was not feeling my best. Yes so did you have a race plan for the final or was it survive. It wasn't. I mean. I just knew it was going to be fast and i also in hindsight can say that you can't be at seventy five percent or eighty percent in not kind of race like you just can't so i would say i definitely expected to compete and i was aiming for You know middle of the pack. I think that i still believe that. I can run a pr again. I just had a good mental attitude but once the race was happening in Even once i did my strides before the race. I was like. I don't know if i'm gonna run the fastest of my life today.

My parents each appar. They like to wear them while they're mowing the lawn. Isn't that cute and these headphones are sweat for trust me. I have tested. This one aggressively aftershocks had bones or just as hard as you do they are durable and they can withstand wicked weather and a lot of sweat. Some are useful. You should get some aftershocks and you should get them at a discount. Go to on the run dot aftershocks dot com. You'll get a code. For fifteen percent off all wireless headphones i personally. Where the arrow opec's again. That's on the run dot aftershocks dot com fifteen percent off all right. Let's get back to more courtney for eric's what about running while you were there. We saw some hilarious straw posts from two. Were there of just like running loops of this like tiny area for you. What was your running like. Both leading up to the prelims and then between the prelims and the finals. What sort of running were you doing. And what did that look like So most days. That i didn't need to be on the track. I actually made a decision to stay in the village because if we were going either to the h. p. c. which was the usatf us soc- like training center or the warm up track at the track. You're running on a truck. And that was it There was like a softball field with turf. The you could run on at the hp see but yeah just a lot of really small loops which actually thankfully oppressive. Our men were very prepared for loops because we run a lot of turf loops on campus. So i would say. I guess in terms of the distance squad. We probably the most prepared for solid. I do love field so you're right at home with ready. Yeah i was really really well prepared for it. But in the village we made like maybe like a fourteen to sixteen minutely. He's there was kind of like an area along the water. That was a part of the section of the village that they've kind of blocked off that we were able to run in. There was a little section up like in front of the buildings. You could run around but definitely not the you know beautiful trails that we'd been running on in park city and i think that's something in my husband had been listening to an interview ryan carlson dead and said that he had explained it really. Well how you know. He was obviously the favorite to win. But just because you've been performing all a year doesn't mean the win at like an olympic games is gonna come that easy because you're thrown into an entirely new environment and one of the big factors is the training and you know for. Yeah the distance runners like the running was definitely not ideal mean. I don't know how many people realistically wanna do all their even images forty minute run around a track every day moving you know thankfully you know when it's cheaper season the runs aren't near as long but you definitely have to kind of just make things work and you know. I think you know. They're not listening. That originally wasn't supposed to be the case. But was you know something. We had to adapt to when you know cova protocols changed in. We were no longer allowed to access like parks and things that i think originally they had planned for us guilty. Now let's talk about the prelims Give us the the breakdown you know. We know obviously that all three of our team. Usa women you an coburn in val stein you all breeze through the prelims and it's easy for me to say breezed through because i watched sitting on my couch at home. It was very easy for me but for you. What was the plan for prelims. Was it just to stay. Stay in their pretty comfortably so that you could move on. What was the race plan for the first round. Yeah you know. I think that the usually kind of the mindset yet going into the prelims is you executed in state composed and so that was definitely the goal Jerry always gets on to me in the prelims. I ended up running nearly in lane two for a lot of it which harder that was because of what happened. Us olympic trials. I just. I felt competent. I would get through and needed to prioritize staying safe because you know falling and the olympic trials prelims was okay because of i mean a i walked away unscathed not injured but also the pace had been a bit slower but some hangs in an olympic prelims. It will be at nine fifteen pace in. It can be much more difficult to catch up. So i definitely was kinda pointed the side of it more have really good clear view of the barriers and just to to stay You know looking at the start list. I felt like my. He may get several women through. And you really don't wanna leave it up to time. I think that's kind of the scarier. Way to qualify into the final is having to sit around and watch the next freelance to make sure that everyone doesn't go and run superfast so wanted to make sure i got a big q. And we got to bow k. To go and there was still more people in it than you know there were. They hughes so felt. Like that was the time i needed to move to the front in the start pushing the pace a bit so that way. It didn't come down to the last two hundred or a sprint finish. I also think that if you can avoid those big sprint finishes in the prelims like you just leave your legs. So was really happy with how that played out in the i was able to. Yes safely get through and I also felt like. I'd handle the conditions. Okay 'cause it definitely was one of the worst days. I would say like conditions wise just temperature. I think it was over a hundred.

"Were kind of like ushers in a sense but really important ushers yes speaking of being an usher before we started recording. You were telling me a fun story about getting to be the person who walked the athletes to their today show van. Can you tell us a little bit about that job. And how you got that role. Yeah that was sort of a side gig just the us athletes. So i can't say enough about the different americans who were in the stadium and how support they were and how great it was to have familiar faces there especially towards getting towards the end of the trip so i can't name them all but but susan hazard and josh kerns from usatf. We're just amazing to work with and just super supportive of uh-huh and understanding of the protocols we had in place for the athletes in for the media and really helped us make that happen especially when it came in came to the us journalists. That were there in the us athletes. So the least i could do is help them get athletes who won medals to the van. That was waiting for them to take him to the today show after the victory ceremony so the van was probably a six minute. Walk from the stadium and the today show had every athlete. Every athlete that won a medal they would have them on and the medal ceremonies. Were in the evening sometime between seven. Eight o'clock pm in japan which is sixty seven. Am in the us in east coast and so as soon as the ceremony was over. Get man and go across the city to their to their live appearance on that today show and so i just kind of default became the guy that helped him get to that band because i knew where it was and i had the right credentials to get there and it was. Yeah it was. I did it for two reasons one. I wanted to do anything. I could help. Usatf and the team that was there was being so great and too because a lot of fun. How i mean. How often do you get to walk. Gold medallist to there to there to there their ride for the today show felt like a really silly but important role and i got. I just got some really great life experiences out of it. I any good stories from that time we had a. Yeah so walking. The shot putters ryan crowder and joe kovacs. Walking them to the van. They really wanted a picture. They had no picture the rings the big ring structures yourself And we spotted one on there was there are two on the walk to the van and they spotted them. They said man we just able to get anywhere near the rings because because in the village the line is so long. And i don't we just go take pictures here. So they went over there and took their pictures of the rings and they've got those now and and they're just we're talking about how important it was to have those photos and that was that was really fun to be a part of but because it's such a great such a great photo for to have both of them there after winning silver and gold and those those guys are just awesome. I ever have a chance to interact with with ryan and joe. They're they're incredible athletes. Incredible people and so being able to help with that was pretty cool. That's so fun. I love it. They just wanted a picture with the rings. That's like the most normal request ever especially for olympians silver medal. Yes series so. I love it okay. So what stands out to you the most from your time in tokyo..
"usatf" Discussed on RADIO GAG - The Gays Against Guns Show
"Good afternoon listeners. We are here today with chance to phonic and berry grabber berry is the new york state advocacy lead for moms demand action. And he's going to give us some context about this lawsuit between mexico and us gun manufacturers. Thank you so much for joining us afternoon. Berry earth question on the table is why do. Us gun manufacturers have immunity from liability. And what is plaka. Thank sean so yeah. the gun. Industry has unique protection from liability that no other industry receives comes out of a law passed in two thousand and five as you mentioned the protection of lawful commerce in arms basically plaque is a liability shield that makes the gun industry completely immune from from nearly all lawsuits so at least families and communities impacted by gun violence without an avenue to seek justice lawsuits are how we broke the hold that big tobacco had on america and how we ultimately held purdue pharma in the sackler family accountable for their role in the opioid epidemic but in the gun industry even those organizations exhibiting incredibly reckless behavior cannot be held accountable using these approaches. Berry what is currently happening with the sandy hook victims families lawsuit against remington in connecticut. Assure share for those unfamiliar. The families of nine of those killed at sandy hook ensued the gun maker in a case called soto versus bushmaster international. Let's division of remington arms right. The basis of that was at the remington marketing the bushmaster. Ar fifteen was really touting it as a weapon of war for shooting humid. Not not for hunting right. They had ads. That said you know forces of opposition. Bow down your single handedly. Outnumbered in another one touted. So the rifles military proven performance. I think he called the the ultimate combat weapon system so the suit came and i think remington had hoped it would go away based on plaka but in twenty nineteen. The supreme court ruled that the the lawsuit could go forward last month. A judge in connecticut denied rimington's request to dismiss that lawsuit so remington has made what i consider to be available. Offer to the nine phipps was a total of thirty three million dollars or about three point. Seven million per plaintiff family now attorneys for the families have argued that they expect that the ultimate settlements could be two hundred twenty five million and with punitive claims could exceed a billion dollars So remington has made this offer. The families have yet to formally respond in that. Trial is set to begin in september looking at this now. Remington has twice filed for bankruptcy since the lawsuit was first filed most recently in twenty twenty and the plaintiff attorneys have talked about how one important goal of the suit as related show banks and insurers the companies that sell assault weapons to civilians or fraught with financial risk. So i think that the offering of settlement points out a few key things i. It's important in that gun makers for the most part have never conceded that anything they do is wrong right. Typically other industries other companies when they're being sued they'll always offer a settlement to avoid going to trial but the gun industry has used that slippery slope argument that if they give an inch. You know we'll be going door to door to take away everybody's guns to seeing the make. This offer tells us that they know they're facing some riskier. Second is at the settlement is probably being pushed by those creditors right. They declared bankruptcy. So i think this reinforces that idea of showing investors and other financial institutions that the gun industry is too risky to invest it. Well jerry thanks for that. I know i am certainly eating popcorn while you're going over some of that information to ally. Meanwhile it's interesting so then you know that's what's going on within our borders. So how then does this lawsuit. Impact the liability and responsibility of gun manufacturers and the damage that their products do from an outside standard. Is there anything different with that. So let me preface by saying. I'm not an attorney and i'm not an expert on international law so i'm not going to be able to give you a lot of insights into the viability of this lawsuit but when i read the details of the suit. It appears if mexico is using many of the same arguments that we've seen in the us suits the gun makers are using marketing strategies to promote weapons that are ever more lethal without mechanisms of security or traceability. You can see that. They're intent with this lawsuit is to put an end to the massive damage these companies caused by actively facilitating the unlawful trafficking of their guns to cartels and other criminals in mexico and in the less they also note that some of these weapons are being created specifically for the mexican market. Colt sells a pistol that is engraved with the face and name of emiliano zapata the mexican revolutionary leader like. They're not marketing that gun to sell in nebraska. And when you look at the numbers the numbers are really striking. The usatf found that seventy percent of guns recovered from mexico originated here in the us and in twenty nine hundred seventeen thousand people were murdered in mexico using guns for the united states so this is a strong effort in my view. I don't know again from the legal standpoint but it seems like a strong effort to do what's working in the us. We're seeing a governments and organizations standing up and trying to take a stance to break that plaka protection bearing. What can you tell us about what's happening this week. With moms demand action. What should the gun. Violence prevention advocates dealing.

"Know. Most people aren't doing any sport professionally doing sports to stay healthy to stay in shape to feel good about themselves and to participate in things with other people the community and you can do that through a variety. Different stuff i mean. We're sitting here on opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of what sports we picked but we have a lot of common. You know dialogue to have about it. We have a similar kind of after the fact of it. In terms of what motivates us in how it makes us feel and things like that so when you have those options you may as well leverage them. You know no sense in doing when you hate what is going through your mind during these races. I think it's the most bring that up earlier and like what. I'm imagining. Because i just think of my own training that i do. I have so much conversation with myself. It's like it's ridiculous you know. It's like it's nice to train with somebody else a lot of times for that reason so i don't have to listen to myself trying to sometimes talk myself out of it or talk myself into doing something dangerous you know it's like and i wish i would just shut the fuck up for you What's your mindset like. Especially like i guess more in the training process than the actual game day. Yeah no. that's a great question. Because i always do find if i do a lot like runs by myself for awhile. It gets harder and harder to kind of keep motivating yourself to do that and then you go and you run with a brand or a group and you're like wow that went three times as fast and it's like you just introduced a new you distraction more or less so i think you wanna in training finding ways to distract yourself from just thinking about like what you're doing how repetitive it is how long you're going to be out. There is definitely a key so you find different ways to do it for me. It's like sometimes. I feel better thinking through something so maybe like i had a really busy week and you know different. Like a bunch of questions came from coaching clients. That i didn't have a great answer for that. Need to learn more to think through and run the option so like focusing on something like that. So i'm having this conversation with myself or i'm running through those options as i'm as i'm running can be great way to kind of spend some of that time or Isla podcast for this because they kind of introduce that variable for you where okay. There's a topic. I want to hear more about or a person who i'm interested in their mindset about something. I'm gonna listen to this while. I'm running so i'm more or less having that kind of conversation kind of vicariously through their conversation with whoever's hosting the podcast that works really well if it's like a workout were i'm trying to kind of an things up a little bit. Maybe music is going to do that for me. It's going to put me in a position where that kind of bit of an adrenalin spike. From an upbeat song is gonna put my head into spot. Were okay now. I'm at mile. Ninety one hundred mile race ninety two run fastest ten miles and i did the other ninety average in in. You know you start to do almost like assimilation and those can be helpful to and and that's one thing i've really learned is using my long runs and training because those are the most long and boring monotonous so like. How do i make that something. That's both able to get through in the point of the physiological adaptation but also work on the mental aspect that i'm going to have at that point race because the interesting thing is i can't experienced seventy to one hundred from the that'll experience in a race in training unless i'm doing another race of that distance and by the way are you allowed to listen to things during races hundred mile race. You guys listen to stuff now. It depends it's usually up to the race director. Most are allow you to do it. Some will say like one year but in one out or they make like these bone conductor headphones. Now where your ears are open and you can. I guess the vibrations are what you're hearing more or less. Okay yeah. Usatf in world championship stuff is a little more. Like no. Go on that stuff unless they did make a exception. I think for like the twenty four hour race where you can get twenty four hours like being humane to say they can't listen to it But yeah so it really depends But yeah so like a thirty mile long run. I might just visualize myself being starting at mile seventy and it starts. Think like what am i thinking about. What am i doing to keep things moving. How am i gonna see this on race day. So then when i get there on race to hit mile seventy is less about thinking. Okay when i raised this distance eight months ago. What went well. What didn't i'm thinking about the seven or eight times. I simulated training in kind of where. I want my mind to go how i wanna focus so you kind of have more of a script or rehearsal in your head versus trying to impromptu it more or less do that's what you said right. There's like huge. And i think i every type of sport we can take that powerlifters can easily you know they're getting ready for me. Let's say.

We're basically attached at the hip so So to me or she's like oh man like i do. So it's like it's like the whole point thing so it's just like i wasn't sure i was like i was nervous because it for hand like i was just call you know like i don't want to celebrate but i can't because we didn't have confirmation for him yet and But we were pretty sure that he was in it was just. There's that whole rules thing to that if it's not on the if you're not in the top sixty by july first Then they can't confirm anything so The us usatf definitely wants to send as many people as they can. And as long as we're in in the in the ranking they'll send us But since there's that whole like july one thing And he was sixty one by july one because that other athletes hadn't been removed by july one. He didn't get the confirmation until july fifth. i. I don't think i really helped by or no. You did because. I was following his updates. And i know that he was. Yeah for a while. It looked like he was sixty first out of sixty and then all of a sudden it was. Hey i get to go. But i was like wait but what was the decision. Where does that come from. So no that is very helpful and what what i would actually love to do before we get Before we go into your whole life story i'd love to do a little race walking one. Oh one with you. Because i think there are a lot of Pretty widely misunderstood. I think a lot of people look at race walking. No it's just fast walking or it's slow running and it's neither of those You are doing you know. You mentioned coming in for the twenty k. Around one thirty five. That's a seven forty per mile pace. That is faster than i run. Most days it's faster than a lot of people run. it's also. There's a lot of technique required. It's not just walking faster So i would love if you could do some like race walking one. oh one what. Don't people understand about your sport..

"Before that before that press conference in asked me to be on. I had no idea what it was going to be about. And i mean i was. I was shocked. I think i think i mean. Apparently some people knew what happened. But i sure as hell didn't so it really you know. But i just didn't really want to get involved in it. I have personal relationships with people in her camp. And i felt like. It's such a icky situation. Because i don't i don't know right. I don't i haven't seen her lab results. I don't know why cast upheld the ban. I have to believe at some level that cast knows more than me right. That was more than the rest of us. So i just kind was like. I don't really want to focus on this until we've seen all the information right now. We're all sort of guessing what we think happened. But then i did start getting called out on social media and alan abramson wrote an article called me out for being quiet on it and so it in the meantime when it looked like. Usatf was going to let her race. I did feel strongly that that was not the right response Whether or not you she's guilty if it becomes a really dangerous precedent to allow someone who's been banned to race for olympic team and potentially change the outcome for those around them. So at that point i felt like okay. I need this. I do need to sort of enter this conversation in say like this. This isn't how it works. In the meantime the clean square collective was getting hammered. because we we weren't saying anything and You know i was trying to like just. I was so frigging stressed out. I'm not gonna lie. So like the cleans. Collective is getting hammered for not saying anything. I'm getting hammered. But also like i am a human and this is the first time that it's been like really like humanized for me in a way. That feels different than other times. I just felt really confused about the whole thing. I did feel very crystal clear on this one thing which was that. I did not feel like she should be eating at the olympic trials. And so you know like the clinton collective starts with the help of mary. Kane puts together this letter and they're they're getting signatures throughout the day. And i'm i'm like stressing out that. Maybe my name shouldn't be on it right. I can't even tell you how stressed i was that day But in the end. I think it worked out. I think the statement that that cleans collective made was was good and fair. And i agreed with it one hundred percent but you know it just. It's just a really sad situation whether you believe that.

"Now let's hear more from cara share. I am loving this conversation. I hope that you are too so getting back to the commentating stuff and this is kind of along the same lines of what we were discussing earlier. Your fellow commentators. The shoes came up from time to time. And you didn't really talk about them a whole lot. So i wanna know your take on that as a conversation point on air and are there rules around that again as nike is really kind of the commanding body over. Usatf are there rules. Are you allowed to talk about the runners sponsors than their shoes. What are the rules around. Shoe talk okay. So i want to. Let's talk about the rule second so the first thing is that you know you've been sonya an auto wanted the shoes to be talked about because it's affecting everything even decaf on a hip hop on scores. It's affecting everything and they were like it. Needs to be talked about because if you don't understand the shoe technology and you see some of the times that are being run you know. It's a red flag and so we want to. We want to talk about it. We want people to understand it. What i was unhappy about is that it always came up during the distance races which are always cut away from for commercials and field events which field events are like big screwed. Anyway so i. That's what i wasn't that happy about. And so i wanted. I thought it needed to be address. I agreed with everyone. It needs to be addressed. But i just didn't i was just like why can't we just do like a package on it and then be done with it. Why doesn't why are we talking about it in all the distance races so the first time that it was brought up i will admit and li admitted as well. I didn't think we are allowed to mention non olympic sponsors during the broadcast so he you know they focused in on. Rachel schneider and lee was talking about how rachel had left. One sponsor for another sponsor. And i didn't know we are allowed to stay. She left under armor for hokka. And so i kind of like really tried to steer the conversation out of it so i was just like an also that was like the women's five k final which we were being interrupted for commercials that sets like. I wanna talk about this right now. You know talking about the race when we found out later we got the okay that we are allowed to name other sponsors so they came up again and they wanted us to talk about it again. So lee brought it up in the ten k which is fine and again i. I don't have a problem with talking about it and saying it's it's changed times. That's to be sure we'll know what it means more in a couple of years but again i don't want to go on and on about it because i'm wanna talk about what's happening on the track and so but i did see that as an opportunity to quick shout out a lot of other brands as well so it was it was there. Were no like rules like we weren't told you can't talk about other brands but then you know it was just unclear and we probably could have choreographed that between us a little bit better. I think when it came up. I was like yeah. It needs to be addressed. But why are we talking about during our races three hundred. There's only so much time during the one hundred. Maybe exactly but i'm just like oh come on but yeah so so i but i was told in-between the first time it was brought up. In the second time it was brought up was like no you can mention under sponsors. This isn't the olympic games. I'm like okay. You know like we're not in some blackout period or anything right now..

"How 'bout physically possible but then like the road element you just one. The one hundred mile ride championship see. Usatf sanctioned one and was up the term sanctioned usatf very championships. i should say but like the pounding for me myself. Or i would imagine most people listening just running a road marathon on your legs is insane. I was blown away after. I did the my first trail martha about how much better my lex felt that day in the next day in the next week i didn't feel like someone taken a a baseball bat to them. They felt somewhat normal. So i'm just trying to wrap my brain around. How how does your body. How handle that hounding. Because it's one thing to train for one hundred miles and to say. Kay i'm gonna do a you know a fifty mile run as a A training run over a race as a training run but the extra pounding of the cement. How how do you get your body to prepare for that. When you know it's so hard the just assefa's yes a really good question. And i think it just kinda fell hardly until like the specificity standpoint so for me i think one of the reasons why i gravitated towards some of these harder surfaced rentable courses early on was just because i had a pretty big background in that in terms of where i was typically training so i translated over that maybe a little more smoothly than say like mountainous trails group in the mid west. So bluffs were our biggest hill if we could get him In that. I think helps a little bit. I think just like. I think there's probably some individual mechanical things to wear like a particular gauge is gonna maybe absorb the impact a little bit differently. And if you happen to kind of have that which may be a product of where you've trained in the past You may have a little bit of an easier way of that The reason not include because my wife nicole who's also ultra marathon runner. She has a vastly different experience..

"Imagine that the budget for able bodied people sports would probably be somewhere in mm more neighborhood of two, hundred, million dollars a two million dollars does not seem a lot of money. It's a start you know. We jumped in right at the start of this, and we want to be able to show that know at least they're trying to do something here to make you know sports available to disabled athletes. Right I school kids that WanNa play in. No. It isn't the best scenario probably not. But at least they're working toward, you know bring something online right as far as the sports themselves because the equipment costs, of course are dependent on what the actual sports are and how they played. So wheelchair basketball, for example, the not necessarily like To the regular off the off, the shelf wheelchairs right I would imagine the kind of special. Equipment for wheelchair basketball if not, just a standardized wheelchair that you would get as you will leave in the hospital. From our from your bypass operation what? Am I correct net absolutely no. No, they're very expensive You know four, five, thousand dollars enough on it. You know. But you know there's a lot of organizations out here of challenged Athletes Foundation. For, one you know gives grants to kids that are are looking for equipment like this. Especially if they show, you know potential and You know excelling in that particular sport and there's other organizations as well. At USATF southern California has gotten involved you know. So it's not like it's just a state you know providing this money they're private organizations that are you know are helping out help out for quite a long time right. What about the sports themselves though because I'm thinking You know who makes up the sports because it's you know baseball if I if I like baseball, we don't know who invented baseball but baseball evolved over. The nineteenth century by time, it got to the twentieth century kind added figured out. gave credit to add a double. Dale. Whoever invented it Andrew Cartwright but. The sports actually had to be invented by somebody. Are they still evolving? Do they still change who's who actually determines? What are the best sports to create for people who are have physical challenges? Yeah. A great question looney backtrack a little bit on the whole idea here was that after the two thousand twelve London Paralympic Games. US Olympic and Paralympic Committee wanted to increase their numbers they wanted. They wanted to get more athletes involved. So they looked at stage Ohio. Texas California Large States will establish high school sports infrastructure already in place and they went to those governing bodies and said, hey, you know if you guys want. Implemented system. It's very easy to do. So what California's will say, okay, we'll do it but we'll do it at track and field and swimming to begin. We'll take those is kind of a Beta test and we'll see what happens. So that's when they adopted those rules was for for. A limited number of events in track and field and swimming, and that was it. So they'll probably grow into more sports is that as the project grows but right now it's limited just to that. When you ten that I I I don't know why. But my mind went back to Jim Abbott who used to play for the Yankees and I forget who else he played for but he's a one on one on pitcher who made it to the major leagues, and so I'm thinking they there's no reason that the can't be some adapted APP adaptation to the sports that people already love Abbie on track and field in the end swimming and that kind of stuff that can't be adapted for people with special physical challenges right and. You. You think there'd be more of that already in the majors, but for whatever reason arisen. Not, just foreign few the Twain and you know I don't know what the answer to that is. you know I think that as more of a spotlight, it's shown on Paralympic Games on I mean you look at NBC I mean they're you know when they broadcast the able bodied and then they like a week later they do the paralympics those eventually they're broadcasting are lot more than they used to be I think it was I think they broadcast broadcasting fifty hours or more of the Rio Games in two thousand sixteen. So there is more interest and you think that that would kind of. Bleed into some of the other sports too right. Yeah well I don't know how to say this without sounding insensitive in some way, but I'm going to go because I'm I don't really have much of a filter in my life where my mind Often A, we will see motivational speaker or inspirational guys guys who get about using people as an example. Athletes with with specific challenges to say you know what these people are doing. What's your excuse? You you? You have been able bodied what? These people are going after their dreams, achieving anything that they they set out goals for themselves to achieve and they don't let. You know other people's conceptions or misconceptions stop them from achieving James and motivational speeches what will often include. Well, look at this example Ed doing this what's your excuse? So I when I with that in mind when I watched that trailer and the girl said I don't know what I'm GonNa do if it's broke and I thought well, that will come in right back to the you know like almost feeling like self defeated and so these people go through the same kind of mind games able bodied athletes go through number one. But then also that why isn't she? Why is she a little tougher? They could considering all she's Come through and overcome. At that point you're GonNa let a thing like a broken ankle stop your whatever she was put whatever she was saying I. Hope it's not broke Is there any of that or am I being like overthinking these this kind of stuff because I would have thought that you know that? You want once you've. Be Develop that mindset of I can overcome physical towns you can overcome anything right these people are super people at their exceptional people have I mean they're what motivated us They can go out of the field and and trained for as many hours they train we get out of bed and go home this without any complaints at all. That that's what I mean I i. mean. So we we see a lot of people in life just thinking I can't I can't I can't and when you look people like this, you say, well, I'm really foolish in week forever doubting my own abilities or making or using anything as an excuse, right? Right. Great motivator. Is You know you look at all the tools that we have to succeed in life and. You know just have to hurdle those obstacle you know and. You know you surround yourself. With. Scenarios that allow you to do that. Due to these. Am I imagining that you got to know the athletes well, enough to Kinda get personal insights into have in mind works and what their real motivation and goals are in life beyond the competition and all that stuff. So when we see able bodied athletes doing this, they have an ion apprised. It goes long beyond the competitive days in many cases, endorsements or whatever whatever they're thinking. Did these people have. Do they share.

"I really I do like that concept of, like this is the position that you need to end in, even though it's intrinsic. I think there's almost like an extra. Extrinsic intrinsic. Queuing going on. When you say this is the finish -sition that you have to hit it has to feel solid. It has to end with decided all your body really long in the side of your body talked up as high as a cat. It has to be tall. It has to be balanced, and then all of a sudden, that's not just an internal queue of like, move my hands to the left. That's a feeling. That's a strong feeling there's almost an emotional needs to that translates that, that may not have had that before. And all of a sudden start to feel Papi. They start to feel fast. They start to feel strong, and then once they get that they they're much more likely to repeat it because it's comfortable place. I really took that away. And I think I really that's one thing from there presentations that I really use on a regular basis. This is where you finish. You gotta feel that and you gotta own that in from there, we can work backwards. But you gotta you gotta end up hitting that piece. You're listening to the dislike performance podcast. Brought to you by simply fester, I like that. A lot actually, I'm glad you mentioned that because I've just been into some stuff that they're similar before. I say that was going to say it's kind of similar, like like doing like during the bar Squatty runs. Like you're in the posture piece is like the center like the athletic posture in the in the hip flex position is the center, and then you're just getting back to your getting back to it's not about running low per se, but it's just about it's about getting back to ethnic posture. And, and so I was going to say to, like I was just literally Washington. She was yesterday two days ago. What you're saying, and this also makes me think the analogy with the blacksmith hitting the hammer, it's always the same end point. It's just you're experiencing different ways of getting there. And that's building more bus pattern to get to that important. But, like I was watching a feldon in Christ. Practitioner with a little boy. He's probably maybe one and a half or two one and a half. And he didn't really sit on his like left pelvis. You would only sit on his his. Right side. And to get him to sit on the left side to get him to sit on that left hip bone. I they just put like a little like wedge pillow under the left hip bone. So it's like, okay, here's what it's like to sit on their here's what's like to be comfortable on this left hip bone. And then they started dropping him on the hip bone from different spots. So it's like here's the end. I'm going to drop you on their from different spots to let you feel this and point. And to me, it's it's not necessarily that much different. You know, there's maybe that internal cueing equate create awareness of what you need to be. But at the end of the day, like, you know where it is, and, you know how to feel and find and find that intuitive process of your way of getting there, so absolutely. I think that's right. I I see. see the similar. Here's completely you. Gotta you gotta know what you feel and then you can get back there. Gotta find your way home first, and then then you can go home foot, if you don't know where home is. You're just lost. Exactly. I've been man. I saw that video. I'm glad you mentioned it too because as soon as the video, I'm like, okay, non thinking, like my, my brain's like hilas, rabbit holes of pro nation and super nation feeling this part of the foot and dropping into this part of the foot, and I think that eventually, the more we can, you know, the more we unpack elite performers and how they actually move like I know you've done in your articles daring bar does all the time. And we see these KPI's that elite and not just those frames like you said that used USATF puts, but all the other frames, and we know where the end points are we can create these these feedback sensory feel they systems on how to get there? And, and I think that's where this is all heading. Yeah. Absolutely. I think, you know, and I think one of the reasons why the education program stick to those the sides because if you show somebody very statically, they're only so many KPI's that you can show static. There are other KPI's that are going on that you can't show because they're more of. They're just more dynamic. They're more of a motion. They're more. The line of force has to be directed in this direction. And you can't really show that without a whole bunch of arrows in diagrams on a picture of the same way you can show somebody, you know, coming out of blocks at a particular angle. That's not really. I think that's also another rotational piece. That's really y you can't really see it, first of all to small range motion, second of all, if the would you call it. If the. Forces aren't being applied in a particular direction at a particular time you're just missing the whole thing. So your, your leg is not sweeping back by the time it hits the ground if that hip is not already the hip that was free in the air is not already sweeping back by the time, it actually goes to hammer down to the track. You're not it's not gonna work like it's you know, you're, you're hitting the same positions mechanically. But biomechanically it's not happening. And I think that's one thing that coaches whether it strength conditioning track fielder. Most other sports. Really sometimes miss is that the bio bio mechanics, what, what directions moving what is on. What is the quality of that movement, as opposed to just what is the position that you happen to be? Yet the rabbit hole goes further. Yeah. Because I'm glad you mentioned that too, because it's easy to say okay, here's a position get to this position. Get very very qualitative, the bodies a machine based way of thinking, but at the end of day how that how smoothly that machine runs is going to tell you how robust it is. And ultimately, how well perform you know, the like the parts could get to like if you had a bunch of like messed up gears or something they got the same spot. Well they got that spot. But it's yeah. Like the quality and going back to what we're talk with, like Taichi knows elements to I, I think that's a cool way of bringing it back around. I was going to ask you to I think beforehand we're talking about like other things like stick drills or, or like other other elements and building like speed or anything in the concept of track and field that you're, you're using that and point of philosophy. Yeah. I'm definitely. I do like the stick drills. So I do a lot of gills with a sticky there, overhead or on the shoulders and I wouldn't say we're training speed when we do that. But we're definitely training coordination and the capacity. To start building speed because we have to do you know, maybe not have to what one of the things that we like to do tempo in the early season. Whether it's an extensive intensive if you kinda follow some of the US, CCA educational, kind of protocols, cut and dried stuff we have to do that, but do we really need to just do to hundreds to do that? So mixing those in two of spot where. Okay. Like we don't need to be that specific right now because the workload is not that specific might not be having somebody high jumped with stick drills. You know, especially at a more beginning level, but we can do a lot of the stuff. That's more general work and start to work on some of those that coordination capacity to really feel. Okay. What are your shoulders doing your whole stick on your shoulders? You know where your shoulders are and, you know where your hips are, and there are a lot of wonky, our movements that are just because somebody's shoulders hips aren't firing the right place. You start to put a little bit of poundage on somebody's shoulders. And all the sudden they're posture. They can't get any vertical lifts unless unless they're in particular posture, just because you give them a little bit of weight. And I find, especially some athletes that are a little bit later. Incan can maybe get away, especially the really balances bringing more elastic types that really, you know, say kid is like five nine in like, you know, a hundred twenty pounds in, we've had a few of those long jumpers when I've been coaching the college kids in those folks, like they can get away with lot because they're light that kids that are a little bit heavy. Can't so you start to throw like a medicine ball into some of these drills. He started threw a stick on their back. So to throw a little bit of weight in there during an actual dynamic movement. They start to learn. Okay. Like I, I could be doing a lot more as far as building a little vertical pushes the ground and really shoring up some posture weaknesses that they might have built up, whether that's through other sports, but it just have worked for them sometimes in order to get athlete to change what they need to do. You need to put them in environment where that, that bad habit. No longer works. And they have to feel that whether that's like a situation where you know, they're doing a complex that hurdle hops in they're gonna fall on their face. If they don't do it, right. You know you to be smart as a coach don't, don't hurt kids. But you gotta make sure that, you know, I can tell you I'm blue in the face which you do. But if we can add a forest or add a stick, or at a med ball, something in get you, you know, feeling for yourself why this is not working. Why wouldn't I just do that? And save my breath. The. I like the idea of a light a light sensory, sensory stimulation to various joints, to help feedback I because I was going to ask you about the stick drills for some reason, when I when it was written down. I was thinking, like stick jill's like wickets kind of like the same thing for the France Bostick chills. And part of the thing that goes off in my brain. And I think you said it but I'd love like some clarification on your take on it is because I see the stick drill. And I think to myself like, like this is making the torso, l'amour rigid. Right. Like there's less rotation. And so, because you talked rotational train, but you were saying it's a more of a sensory. Maybe it's more of a sensory thing. Let's you feel, what your shoulders are doing. How do you reconcile that in the context of rotational training and then the whole sensory thing? Obviously one thing I guess, when I started talking about signals is that I almost never do streak drills and just have somebody finish on a stick drill, which I'm glad you asked that because I definitely have explained this to a lot of people in not mentioned this. I asked you. I will almost always have the kids drop halfway through. Yeah. So all of a sudden, they go from this constricted motion, where they have to be super aware of where the hips somewhere where they shoulders are high got you controlling that motion. And then all of a sudden they can open up and really feel the difference in almost always when I put together sessions that involves stick drills. One of the last things I do as a cool down is what these, these things I call bouncy runs that are basically just like taken straight out of a Soviet old school training manual, and you're just running, and the idea behind them..
"usatf" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"Felicity Huffman and Laurie Lachlan. Apparently deleted all their social media. But it was a little too late people were going through their social media accounts, and and trying to pull videos, and and things from the past and things they may have said on social media in one of the things that I saw today. Lori Laughlin Lachlan bragging that you know, they didn't want to be the parents that forced their kids to get straight as that. You know, they were a lenient on the grades like like, they were the cool mom and dad, and then they still got into USC amazingly enough. In that. Then obviously backfired on them. And then there is the the story of the there's a woman that is suing. And this came out last week is this the five hundred million five hundred billion billion. So that's that's a it's too bad as five hundred billion because that kind of when you see a number like that you just think. Well, that's ridiculous. She's never gonna win that. But she claims has got to be five hundred billion because she feels like she is suing them because they have affected a million kids out there million possible students. So that's why she threw a big number out there. She lives in Oakland. She's a teacher her kids. She said has a four point two GPA, and it wasn't enough for admissions officers. She didn't say which colleges he applied to. But she just said he couldn't get in. I'm I'm guessing it was these elite schools. Yeah. I get the outrage. I mean, I think and I think it's justified, and I think it's genuine you ain't gonna get five hundred billion dollars. I don't know what you're going to get. But I get it. You get the outrage I get it. You realize how hard it is to get into school. And how hard some kids work in the in the child like hers who had a four point two that gets denied for whatever the reason to go to whatever school that he or she wanted to go. I get that. I I don't I mean, usually when there's a problem, right? You say, okay. We understand the problem. We all agree. There's a problem. What's the solution instead of sitting here talking like they do in politics all the time over and over and over about the pro, but nobody seemingly has a solution. I would say in this case what's the solution? What's the endgame here? Quite honestly written, Cathy. I I don't know. Apparently there there's some loopholes like this that have been discovered now where people can slip through the cracks one of them is through sports, you know, where you can pose as a as a fake athlete pretty easily on crew. Team and volleyball or water polo, whatever the sports that don't get a lot of attention. So that was one way in for people tennis team. And then the other is the testing process the SAT test where these proctors are apparently they're vulnerable for bribes. Because some of them took some of them took the money, and they're changing test scores in the case of Felicity Huffman daughter, they changed her score by four hundred points. So this guy went in and took her. She took the test. He went into corrected her test to boost it up four hundred points. And that's a lot that he he get paid. How much they didn't say how much you got paid. But they did catch him. They catch. They caught a couple of proctors. Yeah. I I would say there's got to be, you know, there's got to be mechanisms in place that would prevent for the most part that kind of behavior. Right. I mean that one's going to be more than one person grading tests. Well, but you'd have to be really well schemed to know that that's the Proctor you're gonna get for that test. So she flew out of state to take it. Right. They picked this one guy. Guy. I think I think you have to say when I read some Mr. singers or whatever his name is Steph. It said that you had to say that your kid had a disorder or disability. And that you need to take it out of specific Mace. And then they hired though, they paid those practice. Nineteen. That's how they got away with that. But that's really scheming. You're going to get this. This woman that's suing. She said she's outraged and hurt because I feel that my son. My only child was denied access to a college not because he failed to work and study hard enough. But because wealthy individuals felt that it was okay to lie cheat steal and bribe their kids way into a good college. And that's the truth. It did happen that way. It doesn't say what schools her kid apply to or where he ended up going. If even went to school, but with a four point two to prove that that he didn't get into those schools and give his grades, and what's your idea? She's going to have to prove how how many kids in fact had that have that because you know, GPA now is like a five point. Oh, and that's what you mean. A GPA like the highest GPA. Because you sound like a good GPA is a four point five of the best GPA's a five point out. That's a straight a student who has eight p class, and that's got to be pretty rare. I don't know. I think a lot of these school Ivy league schools. That's what they look for. If she's looking at Ivy league schools, they could say that they could easily prove a wrong is that her hus- done. Navy Ivy league school and David did you know Lynn Swann's, the ethnic director USATF's? Yeah. And he came out over the weekend and said he was blindsided by this. He had no idea that this was going on. I tend to believe him. Yeah. Because it's a big athletic department. And see, that's the crack. That's how you can slip through like is. He really checking out all the crew. Probably doesn't care anything about football more than anything. Right. Just checking that out. Yeah. Track probably at USC as well. As a crew. Okay. This guy got a inch. He's in charge a crew. I'll let him deal with it. Dementia with their budget looks like at USC for his department. Yeah. And how many do you think they have UC of it? They have five or six associate p people in charge of different areas of the ethnic department overall. But I mean, honestly, I wouldn't expect this one to have been aware of this, nor nor do I think we can hold them accountable because evidently wasn't I'm with you there. But certainly embarrassing the university and the school everybody at the top of this of the food chain at USC gotta be embarrassed that this happened. And they they seem to be the one university. That is very prominently featured in the scam. Where they were very susceptible to this type of fraud. And we'll see what they do with with people like Lori Lachlan, and Felicity Huffman will they put him jail. Well, these guys do jail time and fraud men's crew is on the club list at USC. So it'd be easy to sure. Yeah. I know you think would've do they actually recruit guys club the whole idea of club per se is you recruit wants the student becomes a student. I don't see the women's crew. So they must not be club. They must be actual. But you can do what men's water polo? You don't Dave would look great in a water polo. What are they wear? They were they were those little goggles. And then one of those swim caps speed saying, you would be too bad. You didn't play water polo level water polo all along they wear those little Speedo. They don't have your size. Dave. Probably not. Traffic out here..
