At the shareholders meetings for News Corp and Fox Corporation this month, for the first time, Rupert Murdoch wasn't the star of the show. The meetings signified that the transition of power from the 92-year old mogul to his eldest son, Lachlan, is complete. So, how has Lachlan used his first moments of power? And what were Rupert Murdoch's parting words to end his 70-year-long media career? Today, host of Schwartz Media podcast Rupert: The Last Mogul and contributor to The Saturday Paper, Paddy Manning, on what's in store for the next era of the Murdoch empire.

This week on the Pacey Performance Podcast, Rob is joined by three amazing guests, all with incredible amounts of experience developing speed with youth athletes. Alan Murdoch, John Garrish and Micheál Cahill kick off this episode with one of the key questions and one that is talked about a lot, what are the differences when training speed with youth athletes versus adult athletes. Should we be as strict with our technical models? Do we even need technical models? Alan shares his experiences with us and gives us a great place to kick off this conversation. We look into the tips and tricks to coach these key positions so you can implement the information tomorrow with your athletes. Another common scenario working with all athletes but especially youth athletes is that they are normally coming to us in large groups. But how do we maximise their time and get the biggest learning and training effect that we can? John shares exactly how he does this with his students at North Broward Preparatory School. In the second half of the episode we dive into the weeds and discuss the exact drills to use with youth athletes. What has worked for these three guys and maybe more importantly, what hasn't. Micheál dives deep into the world of resisted speed training, explaining how they can used as a teaching and coaching tool as well as a training tool. We finish off this conversation with some questions that we put to these three guys on social media. If you're working with youth athletes and want to maximise your time and their energy, check out this episode with Alan Murdoch, John Garrish and Micheál Cahill. Main talking points: What the key differences are when training youth athletes speed How to coach speed with large groups Tips and tricks to coach the key sprint positions Key drills to use with young athletes Using resisted speed training for teaching and coaching How to introduce games to speed training with youth athletes

On this episode of the Propulsion Swimming Podcast, we sit down for a career reflection with one of British Swimming's best-ever Breaststrokers, Ross Murdoch. We talk about early career Gold Medals for Scottish Swimming at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, and how hard it was to replicate the emotions surrounding that success for the rest of his career. How not winning an Olympic Medal has made him a better person and how swimming has had a massive positive impact on his outlook on life.
We offer these shows for free. If you think it's worthy of a small contribution, we sure would appreciate it. This is Episode 12 of Season 4 in which Jec interviews Wendy Murdoch, creator of the Murdoch Method and author of several books. Check out her online Whole Rider course here. Before this marvelous interview, I thought I'd share a few bits on my work with two young horses. It's a departure of sorts, but I hope you enjoy it. We love to hear from listeners. Contact us here. Thanks to our title sponsor, Lucerne Farms, producers of quality forage feeds, extremely handy and healthy bales of alfalfa, timothy, and grass blends. A great addition or substitute for your hay or grass and way better than grain. Because writing and talking helps me to better synthesize and appreciate experiences (and progress and hiccups and trepidations and failures and successes), I wanted to share some words on my time starting two youngish horses, Tuesday and Table. Tuesday is four or five. She came to me as a free-to-a-good-home, dark buckskin, club-footed quarter horse. Table, who was called Lorenzo until this nickname overpowered me, is a five-year old mustang from the Devil's Garden herd management area in northern California. I acquired him from a gal who seemed afraid to handle him and before that he was with a man who mistreated him, or at least that's what I was told and, based on Table's behavior, I'd say is accurate. Both had been handled very little, had never been ridden, and were overweight. That's where the similarities end. Tuesday had a disrespect for my personal space and was pretty klingy to her herdmates. With work, like creating clear boundaries, testing them, letting her make a mistake and learning from it, those elements of her behavior are improving nicely. She's a sweet horse and I think it can be tempting to invite her in for some rubs and loving. But for now, it's more important for her to learn she can be happy with boundaries. She was unsafe in how she encroached, and it would be easy to make her unsafe again. Table tends to be wary of everything, from a phone that suddenly plays music to me wearing a cowboy hat instead of a baseball hat. And even after lots of good work around tying, he still has a tendency to set back. While I am a competent rider and have helped several horses who have come from bad situations, I have never started a horse from the ground up. As luck would have it, my friend, Jessica Munn, came to visit for a month. Jess is a colt starter, with a background in dressage as well as cowboying. It hadn't been our plan to dedicate so much time to Table and Tuesday, but I'm so grateful that we were both able to commit to this focused work. Her help has been fundamental to our progress and I am deeply indebted to Jess for the knowledge and encouragement she brought to the pen. Oh, and she relearned me on the bowline knot, which I learned as a kid but had a hard time tying it as a horse-tying knot. If you have a horse that might set back, a bowline is a better knot to tie than a quick release knot. Over several weeks, we worked every day to get both of them more comfortable with many aspects of this horse-human thing. Like, for instance, being tied for decent periods of time (20 minutes or more), being hobbled, being led, being tacked up, having feet handled and trimmed, and being away from herdmates. That's a broad brush and it's tempting to think this checklist was ticked off in an afternoon. Far from it. Getting these horses to be better citizens was a road full of frost heaves and potholes. We worked every day, for one or two hours with each horse. We built on the previous days' work and almost always revisited what we'd done in days past. There is a great deal of repetition in good horse work. We do this so the horse knows what to expect in the form of boundaries and performance: when I apply pressure, you move away from it. When I tie you, you get to chill. When the other horses go out to pasture, you get to stay here, pay attention, and have fun. Jess helped me with essential groundwork, which has included lunging and driving, as well as important techniques for riding horses who'd never been ridden, like being able to have them flex when I step up into the saddle. Stepping into the saddle is done from both sides, by the way. There was some learning for me around how to carry the reins more safely and how to sit better on a young horse. She has encouraged me to take time to do everything well. As I have helped the horses become more patient, she has taught me the value of fence-sitting and taking more time with, well, everything. “It's not time-consuming,” Jess reminded me. “It's patience-building.” I have learned some hacks for making progress and being less fearful. Singing, playing ridiculous music, and talking to my horses has helped shake off the brace and elevate my confidence. Taking videos has helped me see my penchant for leaning forward. When it feels like I'm leaning back, I'm actually pretty erect in the saddle. Jess has reminded me to be a confident leader. But what does that look like and how can I relate this to you all, who have different pictures in their heads about what confidence looks like? I see the best results when I am decisive and clear. But being clear means knowing what you're doing, so I have needed help with technique. Being clear is also wound up in confidence and mental habits, too. It's easy to say, “work with confidence and clarity,” but it's harder to do it in a way that is effective for the horses. “Black and white makes light. Be sparingly demanding.” says Jess. Whether with groundwork or riding, it is an everyday challenge to be clear, not vague, to ask succinctly, and not to nag. Our work together, these daily sessions over a month, along with the sitting around, talking about what worked and didn't have helped me a lot in this vein. Now that I'm doing the daily work on my own, I find I have to commit even more diligently: to get out there every day and to stay focused and intentional. Of course, there has been unintentional nagging. Of course, I can beat myself up over tough afternoons. It's all part of the process.

Photos emerged earlier this week showing Mr Murdoch, 92, alongside scientist Elena Zhukova, 66, on a chartered superyacht in the Mediterranean.It's been revealed that the acquaintance between the billionaire and Zhukova emerged through his third spouse, Wendi Deng. Notably, Zhukova's daughter, who was previously married to Russian oligarch and former Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich, shares a friendship with Murdoch's third wife.主播：周邦琴Albert●没有名牌大学背景，没有英语专业背景●没有国外留学经历，没有英语生活环境●22岁成为500强公司全球员工英文讲师●24岁自学成为同声传译●25岁为瑞士联邦总统翻译
In this episode, Alice interviews Prof. Steve Murdoch, Head of Military History at the Swedish Defence University. Before taking up that role, Steve was a professor of military history at the University of St Andrews, and he has been a generous supporter of the Visualising War project from its start. Steve's research focuses on Scottish and Scandinavian relations in the early modern period. He has worked particularly on the Thirty Years War, fought from 1618-1648; and he has also written a range of books and articles about Scottish maritime warfare and wider Scottish experiences (both military and civilian) of conflict in this period. As both a teacher and researcher, Steve thinks critically about how and why we do military history – about our blindspots and biases, the evolution of historical events into sometimes mythical narratives, the voices we don't hear from, and the relevance of military history to contemporary military thinking and practice. We discuss all of this and more in the podcast epsiode. Steve begins by giving us an overview of the complex set of events that became known as the Thirty Years War. He helps us to visualise its scale and wide-ranging locations, overlaps with other conflicts, and the shifting agenda and alliances of those taking part. He also gets us looking critically at how sources from the time represented events and participants, and how later scholarship has engaged with them. This gets us talking about the dominance of 'great battles' and 'big personalities' in past and present habits of visualising the Thirty Years War; at the distorting effects of certain biases in both sources and scholarship; and at what we gain when we pay more attention to ordinary people's voices. For instance, Steve shares with us some letters written by both soldiers and commanders which help us to track the everyday experiences and concerns of those involved, which contrast strongly with the self-aggrandizing rhetoric of some better-known sources; and he also helps us to visualise how the Thirty Years War was experienced by a range of women, who lost family or were displaced (or both) in the conflict.Steve ends by reflecting on the kinds of peacebuilding achieved (and not achieved) by the Peace of Westphalia. He gives us some fascinating insights into the work of two Scottish diplomats, Sir Robert Anstruther and Sir James Spens, who were intimately involved in negotiations between different sides; and he discusses the ongoing ripple effects of the Thirty Years War after its official conclusion, for ordinary people as well as international relations. All in all, he helps us to visualise this complex period of conflict - which impacted many different countries - from a wide and refreshing range of perspectives. We hope you find the discussion interesting. For a version of our podcast with close captions, please use this link.

SERIES 2 EPISODE 52: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:44) SPECIAL COMMENT: It is nearly impossible to be shocked by anything bubbling up in Jack Smith's prosecutions of Donald Trump, and yet Smith has pulled it off. He has promised the court that during the trial of the United States vs. Trump for the stolen documents and secrets: "Why it occurred, what Trump knew, and what Trump intended in retaining them – all issues that the Government will prove at trial, primarily with unclassified evidence." It's a stunning guarantee, buried deep in Smith's filing, answering why Trump should to get his wish to delay the trial until after the election. And he tantalizes us: because nothing else in the motion even REFERS to it, let alone explains it. But it does dovetail with the latest grim details from Israel - and the awful echoes from Washington.Senator Josh Hawley, Republican of Missouri, has now demanded that American aide to Ukraine be CUT OFF and sent instead to Israel, as if there were a reason for such a false either/or choice, and apparently unaware that people can see that his own performance and that of the rest of the Republican anti-Ukraine caucus is not in support of Israel but actually in support of Hamas and Iran. Twice in the last year the Kremlin invited Hamas to send delegations to Moscow and the terrorist group's leadership met with Putin's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov in September 2022 and this past March. There is considerable analysis being done in Europe that the Russians encouraged – even bribed – Hamas, to undertake the full-scale attack that began from the Gaza Strip on Saturday and continues even at this hour. The Russians, this analysis reasons, wanted this because they are Iran's leading ally and because a Middle East conflict of almost any size would amount to a second front, in which Western resources being dedicated to fighting the Russian invasion of Ukraine, might be re-directed TO Israel. In other words, Josh Hawley is doing exactly what the Russians want: degrading western support for Ukraine on the false excuse that the money must go instead to defend Israel. THAT would just give Russia a freer hand in Ukraine, and more money and materiel, to send to Hamas, to DEFEAT Israel, as Iran wants. It MUST not be forgotten, especially not at this hour, that on May 10th, 2017, in the Oval Office, Trump disclosed classified intelligence – classified intelligence obtained by the Israelis – about an ISIS plot the Israelis unraveled in a town in Syria. Trump gave the information, directly, to Putin's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. The same man who twice met with the Hamas delegations in Moscow. PLUS: not only confirmation that Egypt warned Israel about an attack from Gaza, but a reason to suspect that somebody in the Netanyahu government has thrown the defense services under the bus to protect the troubled Prime Minister. B-Block (26:12) IN SPORTS: Steve Garvey? Running for Senator? The baseball hero whose political career died in 1988 when he became "The Father Of Our Country"? His old team underscores baseball's playoff crisis. Hockey dives further into homophobia. And one of that game's best ambassadors has to quit to attend to his own health. (39:07) THE WORST PERSONS IN THE WORLD: Has-been Aaron Rodgers says nasty things about Taylor Swift's boyfriend who they still pay to make commercials, there's a 1/6 defendant worried about "chest-feeding" and the Murdoch empire inadvertently reveals that if the Democrats were to switch candidates, there's one alternate choice with all the name recognition in the world.

How does one, in the capacity of a youth pastor and 7th-grade teacher, come to a point where the only perceived solution is violence against one's family? The latest episode of the podcast "Hidden Killers" with host Tony Brueski provides a deep dive into the chilling story of Matthew Lee Richards. Richards, a youth pastor, is now accused of stabbing his wife and five children due to financial struggles and an imminent eviction, as outlined in an affidavit. Remarkably, at the time of the podcast's recording, all family members survived the brutal attack, with one still in critical condition. "It's absolutely shocking. This was a youth pastor, a 7th-grade teacher with a history of working with kids. He even described himself as 'a big kid who loves teaching little kids about Jesus'," commented Brueski, emphasizing the dissonance between Richards' professional role and his alleged actions. In a riveting conversation with retired FBI Special Agent and Chief of the Counterintelligence Behavioral Analysis Program, Robin Dreeke, the podcast aimed to shed light on possible reasons behind such drastic actions. "The immediate reaction is profound sympathy for the family. Five children now have to grapple with the trauma of their father turning on them. It's unthinkable," Dreeke remarked. While the term "family annihilator" was brought into the limelight with the Alec Murdoch case, where a man allegedly harmed family members over financial issues, the motivations behind Richards' actions seem vastly different. "Murdoch's trajectory was fueled by drug addiction and consistent manipulation, taking advantage of others financially," explained Brueski, comparing the two scenarios. Dreeke provided further insights, suggesting that Richards' case appears to be a classic instance of what is termed "altruistic murder-suicide attempt." "Facing eviction, grappling with financial stressors, and possibly dealing with an undiagnosed mental disorder, the mounting pressure may have triggered a psychotic event," Dreeke proposed. "He believed he was saving his children from a life of misery. It's devastating to consider the anguish that would drive someone to think in this manner." Though Dreeke clarified that he is not a clinician, the symptoms alluded to a deep-rooted psychosis coupled with depression. "Such mental states are more commonly associated with men, and the tragedy here is that Richards, filled with shame, referred to himself as a 'monster' after the event," he stated. Brueski pondered on the aftermath, highlighting that, shockingly, everyone survived the attack. "Was he inept with the weapon, or did he, somewhere deep down, not truly intend for them to die?" questioned Brueski, noting the horrific injuries sustained by the children, including exposed internal organs and a slashed throat. Dreeke emphasized the lack of premeditation in Richards' actions, contrasting it with other violent incidents that showed deliberate intent. "This was a moment of psychosis, not something planned in detail," Dreeke added, expressing gratitude that Richards did not possess a firearm, which could have drastically altered the outcome. In a world where faith leaders are expected to be pillars of strength and moral fortitude, how did one man's life spiral so dramatically? The disturbing case of Matthew Lee Richards serves as a stark reminder of the multifaceted nature of human behavior and the potential consequences of untreated mental disorders. Could understanding these nuances prevent future tragedies? As listeners of "Hidden Killers" are left to ponder this chilling case, the broader community grapples with the implications for faith, trust, and mental health awareness.

In a recent episode of the podcast "Hidden Killers," Tony Brueski dives deep into the perplexing case of Kouri Richins with Bob Motta, a seasoned defense attorney and host of "Defense Diaries." The focus of their conversation orbits around an allegedly incriminating letter, the controversial death of Richins' husband, and the baffling moves Kouri has made since. "Kouri's brother standing up for his sister saying, I knew my sister. I knew Eric. She did not do this thing," Brueski began, laying the foundation for the family's staunch defense of Kouri. But with mounting evidence against her, including suspicious Google searches and seemingly inappropriate actions following her husband's death, Motta and Brueski critically analyzed how family members might reconcile these actions if Kouri is indeed innocent. The most contentious piece of evidence is the letter found in Kouri's possession, which the state alleges contained instructions for witness tampering. Motta elaborated on the state's theory, explaining that, "Essentially what the state is alleging is that she had handwritten these letters... and she would place the letter on the glass so that her mother could read it because everything's recorded." The letter's intent? To craft an alibi by suggesting her late husband had overdosed on fentanyl acquired from Mexican ranch workers. While Kouri has tried to deflect allegations of wrongdoing by suggesting the letter was part of a book manuscript, Motta remains skeptical. "The bottom line here is that you put the thing up against the window and you didn't speak whatever was on that letter when you easily could have just picked up the phone and spoken it," he remarked. This is not Kouri's only attempt to weave a more complex narrative around her actions. In light of the damaging evidence, she has tried to backtrack and spin her story, often against her lawyer's advice. Drawing a parallel with another infamous figure, Murdoch, Motta noted, "She just can't help herself. It's exactly like Murdoch." Despite being cautioned against it, both individuals seem compelled to share their side of the story, perhaps to their detriment. Delving deeper into Kouri's alleged misdeeds, Motta emphasized the gravity of the situation. "If the state's allegations are true, this woman poisoned her husband, killed him, and then wrote a book about grieving for children," he said, painting a dark portrait of a woman capable of extreme duplicity. What might await Kouri in court? Given her propensity to communicate, many, including Motta, believe that she will testify in her defense, much like Murdoch. "She's going to testify. You know, it's going to be, it'll be a good one," Motta speculated. The overarching sentiment of the podcast conversation was one of bewilderment at Kouri Richins' continuous and seemingly self-damaging actions. From questionable internet searches to curious behaviors after her husband's death, and most notably, the contested letter - her actions paint a picture that's difficult to reconcile with innocence. The episode closed with Motta's prediction about the impending trial: "That's going to be a good trial." Yet, the lingering questions remain: Can Kouri Richins genuinely convince a jury of her narrative, or has her web of stories become too entangled for even her to navigate?

As the world grapples with stories of crime, deception, and manipulation, the case of Kouri Richins throws yet another wrench into the societal perception of justice. In a recent episode of the "Hidden Killers" podcast, host Tony Brueski and former FBI Special Agent Jennifer Coffindaffer delved into the intriguing situation involving Richins and her alleged attempts to manipulate witnesses from her prison cell. In a seemingly desperate plea, Richins penned a six-page letter to her mother, Lisa Darden, a letter Brueski described as both "disturbing" and "delusional." Through it, Richins sought her mother's assistance to communicate a potentially misleading narrative to her brother, Rodney. The letter was riddled with inappropriate and misplaced sentiments, such as gratuitous "LOLs," amidst such serious discussions. Discussing the peculiarities of the letter, Coffindaffer stated, "When you look at the letter, it was just not surprising to me. She's going to do everything in her power to try to explain or to try to get out of this." Coffindaffer highlights Richins' delusional belief in her ability to manipulate the situation in her favor, even as the judicial system closes in on her. The pattern is all too familiar, reminding the expert of the Murdoch case, where, as Coffindaffer noted, "you're just throwing mud up against the wall and thinking you can, you know, shine everyone." The audacity of Richins, and individuals like her, lies in the blatant attempts to manipulate even their closest family members. From Brueski's perspective, it seems that such individuals grow comfortable with their deceitful behaviors, especially when they've been successful in their manipulations for extended periods. These individuals often feel untouchable, not realizing the magnitude of their actions until it's too late. One of the pressing concerns in this scenario is how the letter was discovered. Richins was out of her cell for medical treatment when officials found the letter, revealing another controversial issue. She had been given the incorrect seizure medication on six separate occasions. While there are definite rules about inmates' privacy or the lack thereof, as Coffindaffer mentioned, "people incarcerated have absolutely no right to privacy," the negligence surrounding the medication is concerning. Coffindaffer emphasized the importance of proper medical care for inmates, noting the human right to appropriate health services. In her words, "no matter what there is a human component and she's innocent until proven guilty." Yet, she also pointed out that medical mistakes, like those regarding seizure medications, are not uncommon, even outside of prison. The discovery of the letter amid such circumstances paints a grim picture of the prison system's medical attention and potential neglect of inmates' health. The broader implications of such neglect are concerning, as Brueski mentioned an almost grave error where a cancer patient almost received incorrect treatment due to a name mix-up. In the complex web of criminal intent, manipulation, justice, and the health care system's potential shortcomings, one thing is clear: society needs a heightened sense of vigilance and accountability at every level. But as we ponder the motivations and actions of Kouri Richins, an even more profound question emerges: How many other inmates might be weaving such webs of manipulation behind bars, and what systems have possibly enabled them?
