Selling Chromebooks in Walmart is a win but retail remains a major

first_imgSoon, Chromebooks will be everywhere. Google has secure deals with a slew of new retail partners around the globe — including Walmart and Staples. In total, more than 6600 new stores will soon have Chromebooks on display and priced as low as $199.That alone will be enough to move a good number of units. But there’s one annoying little hurdle that Google’s going to have to overcome if it wants to help Acer, Samsung, HP, and its other Chrome OS pals generate some really big sales figures: Google has to make sure that salespeople stop tearing apart Chrome OS.IT World’s Dave Webb went Chromebook shopping with a co-worker in California. When one Best Buy staffer handed over a still-boxed Chromebook to Webb’s friend, another salesperson quickly grabbed it away and offered a “helpful” warning.“This isn’t what you think it is,” he said — presumably meaning that a Chromebook is not a real notebook. Strictly speaking, he’s right. Chromebooks and Chrometops don’t run apps like iTunes or Skype and they can’t install Steam and download all its lovely games. To the average shopper, that means it’s a step or two below a Windows laptop or MacBook.Savvy users — folks who read — understand what the browser-centric Chromebooks are all about. They’re cloud first devices, built to be fast, resilient, and capable without being bloated and cumbersome. They’re designed to run all day and handle 90% of computer used for 90% of users — all the things you do in your browser on a daily basis in 2013.But in a big box store, sales staff know all too well how fickle their customers can be. If someone buys a $199 Chromebook, there’s a decent chance that person is going to come back angry and complain about being sold something that wasn’t a real laptop. They’ll feel cheated, and they’ll want to speak to a manager.The answer: the pre-emptive strike. Tell shoppers up front that Chromebooks are different.Google’s problem is to get these front line soldiers to put a positive spin on things. No, this isn’t a regular laptop. Chromebooks are different — not better or worse — and they might ultimately be a better fit for some shoppers than a “regular” laptop.Whether or not that’s an achievable goal at 6,600 new locations remains to be seen. It’s going to be an uphill battle.last_img read more

MCU News Black Widow Has a Director AntMan Hints at the Future

first_img James Gunn Once Again Directing ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’Dark Phoenix Trailer Released & More Marvel Movie News Stay on target The Black Widow movie looks like it’s actually happening. And after only, what, eight years of asking for it? The movie just took a big step forward with the news that a director has signed onto the project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Australian director Cate Shortland has signed on to helm the long-awaited film. Shortland is most famous for Lore. No, not the podcast-based Amazon show. The 2012 drama about five German siblings in the aftermath of World War II.That’s a very different movie than the spy-superhero-action flick Marvel’s Black Widow will be. Shortland reportedly has a huge fan in star Scarlett Johansson. Marvel interviewed over 70 directors, and narrowed the field to a final three of Shortland, Amma Asante and Maggie Betts. Johansson reportedly pushed for Shortland to land the job, admiring how she directed the female lead in Lore. So there’s a script and now a fantastic director attached to the project. It’s looking like Black Widow movie is actually happening, you guys!Don’t take this news as a spoiler for Avengers 4, though. Though it will come out sometime after that movie, it will be set before the first Avengers. This movie’s existence is still no guarantee that Black Widow (or Hawkeye) will make it out of the next fight with Thanos in one piece. There are no concrete details about what the exact plot of the movie will be, but I’m already on board for a comic book spy movie. Maybe we’ll finally find out what happened in Budapest.Abby Ryder Fortson, Paul Rudd (Via Marvel)By now, you’ve had a chance to see Ant-Man and the Wasp, and you know why Scott Lang was absent during Avengers: Infinity War. Turns out he was under house arrest, and the choice was either break his parole again to fight Thanos (and probably get killed/erased from existence), losing all contact with his daughter, or obey the law and stay with her. Given what we know about Scott’s character, the choice was obvious. But that’s not the only hint at the goings on in the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ant-Man and the Wasp could contain a hint as to what Marvel plans to do next.As Nerdist points out, there’s a scene where Scott’s daughter Cassie tells her dad he needs a partner. That’s implied to be The Wasp, but she really means herself. She wants to go out and fight crime alongside her dad. That isn’t just a cute line given to a precocious kid. She really wants to join her dad in the fight against evil, and there looks to be every reason she might. You know, one day. Eventually.There’s certainly comics precedent for it. Cassie was one of the founding members of the Young Avengers, a group of teen heroes who assembled after the main Avengers broke up. She stole some Pym particles from her dad to gain his shrinking power. Of course, Scott died in that storyline. Hopefully, that doesn’t happen here, but who knows what Avengers 4 will bring? No matter what, we’re not going to see much more of that original team after next year, as the actors move onto other things. The Young Avengers would be a logical next step for these movies to take. They’ve even already cast a teenage version of Cassie to appear in Avengers 4… somehow. Oh man, is there a time jump? It’d make sense, given the mid-credits scene in Ant-Man and the Wasp. Aaaand now I’m sad again.via MarvelEver since the Marvel Netflix shows began, fans have wanted to see them cross over. Just one appearance of an Avenger in Hell’s Kitchen, or Harlem or wherever it is Iron Fist lives. We know the shows take place in the MCU. They reference the events of the movies at least once per season, but the movies don’t acknowledge any of the TV shows. It’s unfortunate, but the production schedules of TV and movies make any team-ups pretty much impossible. We can dream, though. And we’re not the only ones.Daredevil star Charlie Cox spoke at  Las Vegas Comic Con, per Collider. The actor couldn’t give too many details away, mostly because he’s almost as in the dark as the rest of us. He has no idea when or if a second season of The Defenders will happen. He doesn’t know how or if a real movie-TV series crossover would ever be a thing, but he does know what he wants to see. First though, he made it very clear that this wasn’t meant to be any kind of hint.“I have to be really careful here. I mean, I’m sure I can say this. And I’ll just preface it by saying that I can’t see how this would happen. Maybe it will, maybe it won’t. But I have no information to suggest that this would ever happen. But it’d be really cool to see…” and then he dropped this on everyone: “I’d love to do something with Spider-Man.”Um, yes please. I don’t care what Marvel has to do, please make this happen. Not only are both Cox and Tom Holland fantastic in their roles, Spider-Man and Daredevil have a long history of partnerships (and occasional antagonism) in the comics. The issue that got me into Daredevil to begin with was their brief team-up after Daredevil’s identity was leaked to the press. (I still maintain that the Brian Michael Bendis/Alex Maleeve era was the best time to be reading Daredevil.) Who knows if this will ever really happen, but it’s comforting to know we’ve got someone behind the scenes on our side.Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba (Photo via 20th Century Fox)Cox isn’t the only one who wants to interact more with the MCU. If the deal goes through for Disney to buy 20th Century Fox, Marvel Studios will have access to the X-Men and the Fantastic Four. If Marvel’s First Family did make an appearance, it would most likely be an all new cast. None of the three Fox movies are remembered all that fondly. But one actor from the 2005 film wants to make a return. Ioan Gruffudd, who played Mr. Fantastic 13 years ago, wants to be in the MCU.In an interview with Digital Spy, Gruffudd said, “I would love that. I just don’t know, in that universe, the Marvel world, would they let me play something else? I’m so renowned for Fantastic Four. But a couple of actors have [made the leap].”He’s certainly right about that. If Marvel did cast him, Gruffudd would be the third actor from a Fox-produced Fantastic Four to appear in the MCU. He’d be the first who didn’t play The Human Torch, though. Chris Evans played Johnny Storm in the 2005 Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Then in 2015, Michael B. Jordan played the character in the reboot everyone tried to forget immediately. Both went on to have brilliant roles in the MCU. Evans as, of course, Captain America and Jordan as Killmonger in Black Panther. If he had a choice, Gruffudd wants to follow in Jordan’s footsteps.“Maybe [I could play] a baddie, this time? Now that I’ve established myself as somebody who can do that, that would be great.”I’d be down to see Gruffudd in the MCU, and not just because Welsh names are fun to type. I actually have a soft spot for those first two Fantastic Four movies. Sure, they were silly and corny, but they knew that. Especially the second one. It brought in the Fantasticar, for Thor’s sake! Those movies recognized that the Fantastic Four, by nature, is goofy and Silver Age, and if you take that stuff out, you remove a lot of the fun too. Plus, Ioan is great in them. I mean, how else do you play somebody who thought “Mr. Fantastic” was a really cool name?Photo via MarvelFinally, there’s some news about a Marvel movie that is officially not in the MCU. Sony’s Venom, starring Tom Hardy, is coming out later this year. (I know, right?) Hardy shared a few details in a feature in Entertainment Weekly that let us know exactly what kind of movie it’s going to be. Specifically, it’s going to be violent. Remember, this isn’t part of the MCU. Disney and Marvel Studios have no input on this thing. From the sounds of things, they’re going full horror movie with certain scenes here.Venom, Hardy promised, will not be a traditional superhero. Most Marvel heroes have rules. Venom, not so much. “There’s that biting-off-heads issue,” Hardy says. “which is not what you would expect from, say, Captain America taking down a crook.”No, but let’s just say I’ve seen some fan art… Anyway, Hardy also talks up Eddie Brock’s love-hate relationship with his symbiote. The movie version of Brock is a principled journalist, trying to find the truth. And he’s not all the way on board with the symbiote’s thinking. “There’s a tragic clown element, which I find funny and is harmonious with some of the work that I like to do. There’s something funny about the circumstances of having a gift but it’s a tragic gift,” Hardy said. “It’s a superpower you don’t really want, but at the same time, you love it. It makes you feel special. He’s a reluctant hero and an anti-hero.”That could be an interesting story, and Hardy is certainly the actor to make it work. Now if only they’d pronounce “symbiote” correctly.center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Changing your 2019 Ford Rangers oil You better be ready for a

Ford Changing your own oil is one of the simplest and most approachable bits of maintenance that you can do for your vehicle — unless of course, the manufacturer for some reason decides to make the process more of a pain than it needs to be.According to a report published Thursday by The Truth About Cars, Ford was said to have made the new Ranger’s oil filter nearly impossible to get at without removing one of the car’s wheels. However, a Ford service training webinar made available to Roadshow states that removing the wheel isn’t necessary, though removing three trim clips and pulling back a rubber flap in the vehicle’s wheel well is.fordrangerwebinarEnlarge ImageThis screenshot from a Ford service training presentation shows clearly that the wheel does not need to be removed to access the Ranger’s oil filter. Luke Person via Twitter The 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine found in the Ranger is slightly different from the one found in other applications. The Ranger’s enlarged oil cooler means that there isn’t room for the filter to live down by the oil pan, and instead, it was relocated up and into the side of the engine block, protruding at a right angle. This means that removing it is a little less simple than sliding underneath the truck with a pair of slip-joint pliers (please, don’t do this) and a can-do attitude.But things don’t stop there. To get to the oil drain plug, there is another panel in the vehicle’s underbody tray that has four fasteners that need to be removed. Granted, having to access a drain plug through an access panel in an underbody tray isn’t all that weird on a modern vehicle, but when added to the rest of the rigamarole, it’s just annoying.Clearly, this kind of inconvenience isn’t the end of the world. And thankfully, it’s not nearly as bad as we originally thought. 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 34 Photos More From Roadshow Share your voice More about 2019 Ford Ranger Tags 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Update 1/7/2019 11:13 A.M.: A previous version of this story mistakenly stated that removing the Ranger’s wheel was necessary to access the oil filter.

Your smart gadgets need smarter security This group has a plan

first_img Smart tech to protect your home and save on insurance 0 The FIDO Alliance has created a working group to develop security standards for IoT devices. James Martin/CNET The average American owns about eight connected devices, and by 2022 that’s expected to rise to about 13 devices. None of these gadgets adheres to any kind of security standards, a problem that’s troubled lawmakers and security experts for years.The FIDO Alliance is hoping to solve that before internet of things devices boom in popularity — the market is expected to reach 20.4 billion gadgets by 2020. The group sets security standards for online authentication, and on Wednesday, announced that it’s expanding to develop security standards for IoT devices. This is the first time the FIDO Alliance has moved beyond setting standards for authentication online, choosing to tackle this growing cybersecurity problem.”The IoT space is particularly fragmented, and there’s a need to standardize that,” said Andrew Shikiar, the FIDO Alliance’s executive director. IoT devices are notorious for poor security, as they often come with hard-coded default passwords, or they fail to install important updates. Hackers have been able to take control of hordes of connected devices and use them for botnets in cyberattacks. Families have also suffered from IoT security weaknesses, like when hackers remotely hijacked Nest Cams to blare out false alarms. 3:36 13 Photos Now playing: Watch this: Tagscenter_img Part of the issue is that the device makers don’t need to adhere to any standards for security. Energy Star certifies only products that meet energy efficiency standards. In the same vein, IoT devices could come with a similar label in the future.”We do intend that the FIDO mark will resonate and be of importance to consumers in the near future,” Shikiar said.The FIDO Alliance started in 2012 and helped establish standards for online verification and security without passwords. Its certification has become a mark of trust that companies like Google, Facebook and Microsoft rely on as a security measure. The goal of the FIDO Alliance’s new IoT Technical Working Group is to do the same for connected gadgets.Members of the group include Intel, Microsoft, Yubico, Qualcomm and Lenovo. They’ll be looking to take on IoT issues like default passwords and manual updates for devices. The challenge will be coming up with a strong security standard that doesn’t make the IoT devices too difficult to use for the average person, said Lorie Wigle, Intel’s vice president of Platform Security. It won’t work exactly like the Energy Star program, but Wigle said providing a standard would at least give customers peace of mind that the IoT products they’re buying have some semblance of security.”We struggle a lot with the idea of what could be good enough to earn a label,” Wigle said. “The beauty of this is, if we have a standard protocol, we could say the device at least conforms to that.” Smart Home Security Post a comment 12 smart thermostats to regulate your home’s temp Share your voicelast_img read more

EPA TCEQ Respond To Chemical Spill After Houston Warehouse Fire

first_img Share X Florian MartinFirefighters continue to extinguish on-going flare-ups and hotspots.Clean-up crews have contained a large part of the chemicals that spilled into Spring Branch Creek after a massive fire that destroyed a warehouse on Laverne Street.The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency leads the response to the chemical spill. The EPA and several state and local agencies are part of the Unified Command that was set up after the fire.It includes the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the city of Houston and Harris County.Chris Ruhl with the EPA’s emergency response team said they are now waiting for results from samples that were taken from the creek.  “We know that there was a red oil-type substance that was floating on the creek, and that is what EPA is focused on and TCEQ focusing on removing currently,” he said.He said according to the owner, that substance is a fuel additive. It was stopped by boom about a mile downstream from the warehouse site.Florian MartinOfficials say the warehouse stored pesticides and fuel additives.Also stored in the A-1 Custom Packaging warehouse were veterinary balms and bug repellent. And investigators are trying to find out what other chemicals are on site.“And when that investigation is done, the determination will be made in terms of what types of inventory may have needed to be shared and shared with whom,” Ruhl said.Clean-up crews are working on containing smaller pockets of chemical runoff in the water. Ruhl hopes they will finish by the end of this week.The EPA is also monitoring the air in surrounding neighborhoods and at Valley Oaks Elementary School. There’s still a smell in the air, but no elevated levels of hazardous chemicals have been found.Texas Parks and Wildlife is assessing the impact on animals, such as fish, turtles and snakes. They want residents to report affected wildlife, but ask residents not to handle any animals themselves.Editor’s Note: The name of the elementary school has been corrected.  00:00 /01:27 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listenlast_img read more

Study results suggest cannabis originated in the Tibetan Plateau

first_img More information: John M. McPartland et al. Cannabis in Asia: its center of origin and early cultivation, based on a synthesis of subfossil pollen and archaeobotanical studies, Vegetation History and Archaeobotany (2019). DOI: 10.1007/s00334-019-00731-8 Switzerland mulls studies on legal sale of cannabis © 2019 Science X Network Explore further Credit: CC0 Public Domain Cannabis is likely one of the most well-known plants on Earth because it produces cannabinoids—chemicals that have a pronounced impact on the human brain. Prior studies have suggested the plant likely originated somewhere in central Asia approximately 28 million years ago—the point where it diverged from an ancestor, the common hop. In this new effort, the researchers sought to more precisely pin down the most likely place where the plant got its start.The approach used by the researchers was to pore through prior studies, whether archaeological or geological, looking for mention of the famed plant—most notations referenced pollen because it is the part of the plant that can survive the longest. The researchers point out that identifying cannabis pollen at dig sites was not a trivial task, because in most tests, it appears identical to hop pollen. To get around that problem, they took note of other types of pollen that were found with the cannabis candidates. If the other pollen came from woodland plants, the researchers assumed they were hops, whereas if they came from steppes, the pollen was assumed to be from a cannabis plant—modern cannabis plants prefer the type of climate found in steppes. When the researchers zeroed in on the studies that mentioned cannabis (found with other steppe pollen) the earliest, they found references to parts of southern Russia and northern China. Further analysis led them to believe that the most likely place of origin was the Tibetan Plateau, perhaps near Qinghai Lake, which, the trio notes, is approximately 3200 meters above sea level. Interestingly, the researchers also note that the site is also near the place where evidence of Denisovans has been found—along with cannabis pollen. A trio of researchers with the University of Vermont, Middlebury College and the University of Nottingham, Ningbo, China, has found evidence that suggests cannabis originated in the Tibetan Plateau. In their paper published in the journal Vegetation History and Archaeobotany, John McPartland, William Hegman and Tengwen Long describe their analysis of prior studies of the plant and how they narrowed down the likely place where it first developed.

Ambush kills 7 UN peacekeepers in Sudans Darfur

first_img New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Clean energy: Why it matters for Arizona No group immediately claimed responsibility for the assault Saturday. Tribal clashes remain common in the region and some former government militias have begun taking up arms again as fighting continues over land and resources.A February report by a U.N. panel of experts said that some armed opposition groups angry about the presence of peacekeepers have called the force “a legitimate target.”“On occasion, this discontent has also manifested itself in incidents of direct attacks on UNAMID staff and premises, although some of these incidents _ especially those of carjacking and kidnapping of UNAMID peacekeepers _ appear to have an overtly criminal intent of financial gain for the perpetrators,” the report said.Darfur has been gripped by bloodshed since 2003 when rebels took up arms against the government in Khartoum. More than 300,000 people have been killed in the conflict. The International Criminal Court indicted Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir in 2009 on genocide and war crimes charges over the fighting in Darfur. The country split into Sudan and South Sudan in 2011.Unrest continues in the region. About 300,000 people have fled fighting throughout Darfur in the first five months of this year, the U.N. has said. Top Stories Sponsored Stories (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Don Shooter shows health improvement Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of CAIRO (AP) – Gunmen ambushed a United Nations peacekeeping team Saturday in Sudan’s western region of Darfur, killing seven Tanzanians and wounding another 17 people in the deadliest ever single attack on the international force in the country, U.N. officials said.The assault by a large group of gunmen included sustained heavy fire from machine guns and possibly rocket-propelled grenades, targeting the force some 25 kilometers (15 miles) west of the town of Khor Abeche, U.N. forces spokesman Chris Cycmanick said. Reinforcements later arrived to rescue the wounded, who included two female police advisers, the force said in a statement. Comments   Share   A statement late Saturday on behalf of U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon identified the dead as all being from Tanzania. About 40 countries have contributed military personnel or police to the peacekeeping force.The statement said Ban condemned the “heinous attack” and offered condolences to the families of the dead. The statement said it was the third attack on U.N. forces in the region in the last three weeks.Ban “expects that the government of Sudan will take swift action to bring the perpetrators to justice,” the statement read.Officials with the Sudanese government could not be immediately reached for comment.Peacekeepers have been targeted by assailants in the past in the region since the international force began its work there in 2008. In the last fatal attack, gunmen shot dead a Nigerian peacekeeper in April in East Darfur State. Before Saturday’s attack, 150 people associated with the U.N. mission had been killed while on duty in the region, according to the force’s website.The joint African Union-U.N. peacekeeping force, dubbed UNAMID, was established to protect civilians in Darfur, but also contributes to security for those providing humanitarian aid, verifying agreements, political reconciliation efforts and promoting human rights. It has about 16,500 troops and military observers and over 5,000 international police. “The mission condemns in the strongest possible terms those responsible for this heinous attack on our peacekeepers,” said Mohamed Ibn Chambas, a joint special representative of the force. “The perpetrators should be on notice that they will be pursued for this crime and gross violation of international humanitarian law.”More than 100 U.N. peacekeepers were killed last year alone on duty in the Darfur and Abyei regions of Sudan, Congo, Ivory Coast and other countries. Eight more civilian contractors, such as pilots, also died on deployment with peacekeeping missions in 2012.___Associated Press writers Michelle Faul in Lagos, Nigeria, and Edie Lederer in New York contributed to this report.___Jon Gambrell can be reached at read more

Frank Retires Leaving Namesake Law With Uncertain Future

first_imgFrank Retires, Leaving Namesake Law With Uncertain Future in Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Rep. “”Barney Frank””: (D-Massachusetts), a liberal icon on Capitol Hill and co-author of the financial reform law that bears his name, announced Monday that he will not seek reelection.[IMAGE]””I will not be a candidate for reelection to the House of Representatives in 2012,”” he wrote in a statement, attributing his decision to a changing electoral landscape in his home state of Massachusetts as well as in the halls of Congress.A newly redistricted area of Massachusetts ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô formerly the district he represented for 40 years ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô adds less than half a million new constituents and straddles an area with which he is unfamiliar, according to Frank.Calling it his obligation to reach out to new constituents and represent them in a faithful manner, he said a campaign “”would compete with two other obligations which I neither want to nor can avoid.””He cited partisan politics as another reason for his retirement, describing the current landscape in D.C. as one “”that makes it harder to get anything done at the federal level… I now believe that there is more to be done trying to change things from outside than by working within.””He pledged to continue his public advocacy efforts from outside the Beltway and finish his term in office.With former Sen. “”Chris Dodd””: (D-Connecticut), who retired in 2010, Frank spearheaded the effort to roll out the Dodd-Frank Act, which critics ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô particularly those from the right ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô continue to pan as a threat to the financial services industry and economic recovery at large.The financial reform law set the stage for a counterstrike from opponents and numerous battles on Capitol Hill over controversial stipulations related to mortgage lenders and servicers.[COLUMN_BREAK]Critics complain that Dodd-Frank, many of the rules for which still need writing, threatens to upend the industry by flooding it with mortgage disclosure requirements, banning short-term proprietary trading by banks under the Volcker Rule, and concentrating the rulemaking authority for 18 consumer financial protection laws in the “”Consumer Financial Protection Bureau””: (CFPB).Speaking about his signature law, Frank wrote that he “”was ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô and am ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô concerned about right-wing assaults on the financial reform bill, especially since we are now in a very critical period when the bill is in the process of implementation.””””If there’s a time to leave, now is the time,”” “”Mark Calabria””:, director of financial regulation studies with the “”Cato Institute””:, tells _MReport_. He says that his departure makes it more likely that Republican opponents will repeal Dodd-Frank.He describes Frank’s departure as one that may leave Democratic members of Congress with “”less allegiance”” to Dodd-Frank, which he calls the congressman’s “”primary legacy.””””Ed Mierzwinski””:, consumer program director with “”USPIRG””:, credits Dodd-Frank for establishing “”the landmark [CFPB] against a phalanx of opponents and its rollback of previous anti-consumer state law preemption standards… among the many important achievements in that law that can be directly attributed to Barney’s leadership.””We’re glad he will be here one more year to defend them,”” he adds.Multiple news outlets speculated that Rep. “”Maxine Waters””: (D-California) is now in line to replace Frank as ranking member for the “”House Financial Services Committee””: Whither the sometimes controversial congressman once he retires? Frank said that he plans to write and teach in addition to his public policy advocacy.No stranger to controversy, Frank defended his legacy at a press conference recorded by “”C-SPAN””: Monday, casting himself as one of the earliest members to detect trouble with subprime mortgages.He also dogged on _The Wall Street Journal_ editorial board and “”Federal Housing Finance Agency””: de facto head “”Edward DeMarco””:, and criticized Republicans for “”trying to pop”” the CFPB by denying it the funds it needs.””One of the advantages to me not being in office is that I don’t even have to pretend to be nice to people I don’t like,”” he told reporters to laughter.
