3 Malone University Athletics Statement on Drugs, Tobacco, or Alcohol Products: As an expression of our Malone Community Agreement, our rich Christian tradition, and knowledge of the physiological and psychological detriment that substance use and abuse will cause, Malone University Athletics prohibits the use of any drugs, tobacco, or alcohol product. Introduction: The overall goal of Malone University's Student-Athlete Drug Education and Testing Policy is to promote a year-round drug free environment in the Malone University intercollegiate athletic program. The overall goals of the Drug Education and Testing Policy are: To protect the health, safety, and welfare of the student-athlete; To identify, address, and treat student-athlete problems and concerns involving drug and alcohol use and abuse; To inform and educate student-athletes and others associated with athletic teams about drugs and alcohol, and the effects of their use/abuse; To protect the institution's integrity; To seek to maintain "fair play" in intercollegiate athletic competition by Malone athletes. The first priority of this policy is the student-athlete's health, welfare, and safety. The approach is from a medical perspective, with an emphasis on prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation. Accordingly, notwithstanding any other provision in this policy, any team physician may prohibit any student-athlete from practicing or competing for such time as the physician deems that to be medically necessary. The policy has four main focuses: 1.) The first focus is on substances commonly believed to be "performance enhancing," so that student-athletes will not feel compelled to take these health endangering substances in order to compete successfully. 2.) The second focus is on "socially used drugs" because of their potential for dependence and harm. In addition, there is evidence to indicate that the use of these drugs may impair performance and reaction time, possibly resulting in injury to the student-athlete or others during athletic activity. 3.) The third focus is on the consumption of alcohol. 4.) The fourth focus is on tobacco use. Education and counseling are the cornerstones of the policy. These activities are conducted to alert student-athletes and coaches to the potential harm of substance abuse. Education and counseling are supplemented with drug testing, since studies have shown that education alone is not a sufficient deterrent to drug use. Page 3 of 23

4 The Malone University protocol for drug testing is designed to be fair, to achieve reliability of testing results, and to respect the privacy of the student-athlete. Test results are confidential to the extent permitted by law and become part of the student-athlete's medical record. Test results will not be released to anyone except in accordance with this policy or as otherwise required by law. This policy and its administration are subject to modification by the Drug Education and Testing Committee, the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, or the President of the University. Amendments proposed by the Drug Education and Testing Committee will be implemented if approved by the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics. Student-athletes will receive prompt notice of the relevant changes. Amendments to the policy will not take effect retroactively. This is an Athletic Department directed program and will be administered under the direction of the University NCAA drug-testing site coordinator appointee. Although this is primarily a student-athlete program, cheerleaders, and student managers will also be subject to this policy. This policy and its sanctions are independent of the NCAA Drug Testing Policy. This policy does not apply to participants in intramural athletics. Prohibited Drugs/Substances: The drug screening process may include analysis of, but is not limited to, the NCAA list of banned-drug classes. For an ongoing updated listing of the banned-drug list view the NCAA s web site at Prohibited substances that Malone University may screen for include, without limitation, marijuana, PCP, opiates, MDMA (Ecstasy), amphetamines, cocaine, flunitrazepam (Rohypnol) and anabolic steroids. Malone University requires that all student-athletes keep the athletic training staff and/or team physician aware (in writing) of any prescribed drugs and dietary supplements that he or she may be taking. Malone University reserves the right to test for substances not contained on the NCAA banneddrug list and may test at cut off levels that differ from the NCAA program. Educational Component: A major component of this policy is education. There are two facets to the educational program: 1.) Explanation of Malone University s drug education and testing program to student-athletes and others. Page 4 of 23

5 2.) Dissemination of information to student-athletes and those associated with athletic teams regarding drugs and alcohol, their use and abuse, and how such use or abuse may affect the student-athlete and his/her team and teammates. A. Explanation of Malone University's program to the student-athlete: 1. An annual presentation will be made to each intercollegiate athletic team in order to outline and review this policy, its purposes and implementation, and sanctions for violating it. 2. A copy of this policy will be given to student-athletes at their annual team Certification Meeting. They will be asked to sign a form acknowledging receipt of the policy and consent to testing. 3. Any student-athlete who does not wish to sign the consent form may choose not to do so and forego participation in intercollegiate athletics. Student-athletes are free to refuse to consent to drug testing under this policy. However, studentathletes who refuse to be tested in accordance with this policy, which is designed to protect the health and welfare of the student-athlete, will not be permitted to participate in intercollegiate athletics at Malone University and will, therefore, lose their athletic scholarship and/or grant in aid. B. Education of student-athletes and others about alcohol and other drugs. 1. Each team and coaching staff will meet annually, and at such other times as may be deemed necessary by the Director of Athletics, for educational sessions. These sessions will focus on information regarding the dangers of using performance-enhancing substances, illegal drugs, and alcohol. 2. Educational programs will be designed with the following goals: a. To inform those associated with intercollegiate athletics how to recognize the warning signs and side effects of specific drugs. b. To educate the student-athlete and other appropriate personnel about the problems of drug and alcohol abuse, and how drug and alcohol abuse may adversely affect the student-athlete and his/her team and teammates. c. To encourage discussion about the use of drugs and consumption of alcohol. d. To describe rehabilitation and treatment programs and to inform about referral centers. Page 5 of 23

6 3. Attendance of the student-athlete at scheduled educational sessions is mandatory. Absence will be permitted only if approved by the student-athlete s head coach. The student-athlete must attend a make-up session for each absence. 4. Athletic trainers, team physicians, and other appropriate athletic department personnel, as determined by the Head Athletic Trainer and/or Head Team Physician, should participate in these educational sessions. All coaches are expected to participate in at least one education session each year about alcohol and drugs. 5. Appropriate athletic department personnel may be expected to attend NCAA drug and alcohol education seminars, and other, similar national clinics and seminars, and to participate in departmental drug education training sessions, in order to keep up to date on these issues. Counseling Component: A. The purpose of the counseling component of this policy is to provide assistance, direction, and resources for student-athletes who need support as a result of positive tests, physician referral, or self-referral. B. Counseling will be provided by trained specialists identified by the Malone University Sports Medicine Department. Referrals will originate with the Sports Medicine Department, who shall be involved in developing an appropriate treatment plan. Counseling will be confidential. However, the student-athlete s substance abuse counselor will inform the Sports Medicine Department and the student-athlete s head coach of the student-athlete s progress and of any incidents of non-compliance. C. Self-referrals for counseling may occur at any time. A student-athlete who feels he/she needs to talk to a substance abuse counselor should contact the Head Athletic Trainer or designee. If a student-athlete self-refers, the counselor or team physician may require that the student-athlete be drug tested. Unless the student-athlete has self-referred after receiving notification of an unannounced drug test, this test result will not be considered a positive result for sanction purposes under this policy. D. Missing a Counseling Session: It is the responsibility of the student-athlete who makes an appointment with a counselor to keep that appointment. If the student-athlete is not able to keep the appointment he or she is expected to cancel the appointment by telephone, preferably 24 hours in advance but at least by 8:30 a.m. on the day of the appointment. Prior to the appointment, the Page 6 of 23

7 student-athlete will read and sign an informed consent for evaluation and treatment, which includes an agreement to follow the appointment policies. Failure to keep or cancel an appointment as stated above my result in suspension from practice and/or competition as determined by the Director of Athletics or his/her designee. Drug Testing Component: A. General Provisions: The testing program will consist of five types of testing: 1. Unannounced Random Testing a. All student-athletes who have signed the institutional drugtesting consent form and are on the institutional squad list are subject to unannounced random testing. b. Students listed on the squad list that have exhausted their eligibility or who have had a career-ending injury will not be selected for testing. c. The University NCAA drug-testing site coordinator appointee will select student-athletes from the official institutional squad lists by using a computerized system or similar mechanism to select student-athletes for testing on a random basis. Teammates of student-athletes testing positive for alcohol or other drug use in violation of this policy may be randomly selected for testing throughout the calendar year. d. The team physician may require the collection of an initial specimen from each student-athlete as part of the annual preseason medical screening. 2. Reasonable Suspicion Screening a. A student-athlete may be subject to testing at any time when the University NCAA drug-testing site coordinator appointee or other athletics staff member determines there is individualized reasonable suspicion to believe the participant is using a prohibited drug. b. Such reasonable suspicion may be based on objective information as determined by the Director of Athletics or by an Associate/Assistant Athletic Director, Head coach, Director of Strength and Conditioning, Assistant Coach, Head Athletic Trainer, or Team Physician, and deemed reliable by the Director of Athletics or his/her designee. The evidence supporting the Page 7 of 23

8 suspicion must be reasonably reliable and should be clearly documented in writing. c. A review committee, appointed by the Director of Athletics, will review the information and determine the need for testing. Reasonable suspicion may include, without limitation, 1) Observed possession or use of substances appearing to be prohibited drugs. 2) Arrest or conviction for a criminal offense related to the possession or transfer of prohibited drugs or substances. 3) Observed abnormal change in appearance, conduct or behavior reasonably interpretable as being caused by the use of prohibited drugs or substances. d. Among the indicators which may be used in evaluating a student-athlete s abnormal change in appearance, conduct or performance are: class attendance, significant GPA changes, athletic practice attendance, increased injury rate or illness, physical appearance changes, academic/athletic motivational level, emotional condition, mood changes and legal involvement. e. If suspected, the University NCAA drug-testing site coordinator appointee will notify the student-athlete and the student-athlete will stay with a member of their coaching staff, the athletics administration staff, or the sports medicine staff, until an adequate specimen is produced. Note: The possession and/or use of illegal substances may be determined by means other than urinalysis. When an individual is found to be in possession and/or using such substances, he/she will be subject to the same procedures that would be followed in the case of a positive urinalysis. f. The student-athlete may appeal that reasonable suspicion exists. If the student-athlete wishes to make such an appeal, he/she shall immediately notify the Director of Athletics, and the specimen will be stored untested until the Appeals Committee has rendered a decision on whether reasonable suspicion existed. 3. Postseason/Championship Screening Page 8 of 23

9 a. Any participant or team likely to advance to post-season championship competition may be subject to additional testing. b. Testing may be required of all team members or individual student-athletes at any time within thirty (30) days prior to the post-season competition. If a student-athlete tests positive, he or she will not be allowed to compete at the post-season event and will be subject to the sanctions herein. 4. Re-entry Testing a. A student-athlete, who has had his or her eligibility to participate in intercollegiate sports suspended as a result of a drug violation, may be required to undergo re-entry drug testing prior to regaining eligibility. b. The University NCAA drug-testing site coordinator appointee shall arrange for re-entry after the counselor or specialist involved in the student-athlete s case indicates that re-entry into the Intercollegiate sports program is appropriate. c. The drug testing cost is the student-athlete's responsibility. 5. Follow-up Testing a. A student-athlete who has returned to participation in intercollegiate sports following a positive drug test under this policy may be subject to follow-up testing. Testing will be unannounced and will be required at a frequency determined by the University NCAA drug-testing site coordinator appointee in consultation with the counselor or specialist involved in the student-athlete s case. B. The protocol for collection, chain of custody, and the University's responses to positive tests shall be the same for both random and reasonable suspicion testing. C. Records of test results are considered medical records and are confidential to the degree permitted by law. The records will be maintained by the Head Athletic Trainer, and released only under the circumstances allowed by this policy or as otherwise required by law. D. Specimen Collection and Chain of Custody / Notification and Reporting for Collection Page 9 of 23

10 1. The student-athlete will be notified of and scheduled for testing by the University NCAA drug-testing site coordinator appointee. Notification of testing shall consist of a face-to-face meeting with the student-athlete, a phone conversation with the student-athlete, and/or an electronic mail notification that has been confirmed by the student-athlete. 2. The University NCAA drug-testing site coordinator appointee will notify the student-athlete of the date and time to report to the testing station or the off campus location, and will have the student-athlete read and sign the Student- Athlete Notification Form. 3. The University NCAA drug-testing site coordinator appointee will be in the testing station if the test is done on campus to certify the identity of the studentathletes selected. Student-athletes shall provide picture identification when entering the drug-testing station. The University NCAA drug-testing site coordinator appointee must remain in the collection station until all studentathletes complete the collection process if the testing is done on campus. 4. Upon notification, the student-athlete must present himself/herself at the specified collection site at the designated time for testing. Specimen collection will be carried out under the direction of the University NCAA drug-testing site coordinator appointee if the testing is done on campus. 5. Specimen collection will be carried out in a private area under the supervision and direct observation of the specimen collector. 6. Upon collecting the sample, the University NCAA drug-testing site coordinator appointee, will arrange for the specimen to be sent or taken to the appropriate laboratory with appropriate documentation of the chain of custody. E. Responses to Positive Test Results. 1. Notification of Positive Test Results. The student-athlete s Head Athletic Trainer, the student-athlete s head coach, the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, and, if the student-athlete has one, his/her substance abuse counselor will be informed of positive test results. The Director of Athletics may also notify other University officials of the result when he/she determines that the relevant official has a legitimate institutional interest in receiving the information. The Director of Athletics may also inform the parents and/or guardians of any studentathlete who is under eighteen years of age of a first positive test result. Page 10 of 23

11 Reinstatement petitions and appeals can also result in the disclosure of test results pursuant to this policy. 2. Sanctions for Positive Test Results. * See Appendix for flow chart of sanctions Note: Each head coach may have team rules regarding the use and/or abuse of drugs that may affect the eligibility for practice and competition of the student-athletes on his/her team. Such team rules may provide for sanctions that are more stringent than those required by this policy. 3. Positive testing results from the NCAA and other outside sports testing agencies will be treated as positive tests obtained under this policy and result in sanctions under this policy in addition to any sanctions imposed by the NCAA and/or other outside agencies. 4. Any attempt to circumvent the specimen collection and testing process will result in the test being considered a positive test. 5. Reinstatement: The student-athlete may file a petition for reinstatement with the Malone University NCAA drug-testing site coordinator during any suspension which results from a positive test. Along with his or her petition, the student-athlete must undergo a comprehensive medical examination, including drug testing and a review of all counseling or other treatment records by the student-athlete s team physician. The Committee will consider the petition and all relevant records (including medical records) and forward a recommendation (along with the supporting documentation) to the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics within 10 business days. The Director of Intercollegiate Athletics will make the final determination regarding reinstatement. If reinstatement is granted, the following conditions will apply: a. The student-athlete must undergo unannounced drug retesting, and the suspension will not be lifted until he/she has had three consecutive negative drug test results. b. Should a student-athlete test positive at any time after being reinstated, he/ she will be immediately and permanently barred from the intercollegiate athletics program. This may result in the non-renewal of the student-athlete s athletic scholarship or other grant in aid. Page 11 of 23

12 Appeal Process: Student-Athletes who test positive under the terms of the Malone University Intercollegiate Athletics Drug Education and Testing Policy will be entitled to a hearing with the Director of Athletics or his/her designee prior to the imposition of any sanction. Requests for such hearing must be made within forty-eight (48) hours of notification of a positive test result. If the forty-eight hours would end on a weekend, the request must be made by noon on the next business day. Requests must be in writing and received by the Director of Athletics. The student-athlete may have an advocate or other representative present if the student so desires. However, the student-athlete must present his or her own case. The meeting should take place no more than seventy-two (72) hours after the written request is received. Either the student-athlete or the other parties involved may request an extension of time to the Director of Athletics, who will consider whether to grant the extension upon a showing of good cause. These proceedings shall include an opportunity for the student-athlete to present evidence, as well as to review the results of the drug test. The proceedings shall be confidential. The decision by the Director of Athletics or his/her designee regarding the sanction to be imposed shall be final. 1. A student-athlete may appeal a positive drug test. A student-athlete desiring to appeal must file a written notice of appeal with the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics within three business days of notification of a positive test result. 2. A hearing will be conducted by a three-person Appeal Committee chosen by the Chair of the Committee. The three-person appeal committee will be made up of two athletic coaches and one athletic administrator. The student-athlete making the appeal and any Committee member who participated in the decision to test the student-athlete will be excluded from the Appeal Committee. Evidence of the student-athlete's drug use and all positive test results will be presented to the Appeal Committee. The student-athlete may argue that the proposed sanctions for a positive test are inappropriate or contrary to this policy. The student-athlete may have an advisor from the University community (faculty, staff, or student) present at the hearing; however, the advisor may not play an active role in the hearing process. The student-athlete will be given an opportunity to present evidence to support his or her contentions, call witnesses, or cross-examine other witnesses presented by the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics. The student-athlete will have the burden of proving that the sanction imposed for a positive drug test was inappropriate or contrary to this policy. 3. The Appeal Committee will decide the appeal within five working days of the hearing and will notify, in writing, the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics or designee, the student-athlete, and his/her head coach. The Director of Intercollegiate Athletics may inform other university officials of the decision when the Director determines that the relevant official has a legitimate Page 12 of 23

13 institutional interest in receiving the information. The decision of the Appeal Committee is final and may not be appealed. A written record of the Appeal Committee's decision, including the evidence considered by the Appeal Committee, will be maintained by the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics. Voluntary Disclosure/Safe Harbor: A student-athlete who has engaged in prohibited drug use is encouraged to seek assistance from the athletic training staff by voluntarily disclosing his or her use prior to an announced drug test. The athletic trainer will direct the student-athlete to the correct medical services. If the student-athlete seeks assistance prior to being identified as having violated this policy or being notified that he or she must undergo screening, the impermissible use will not be deemed an offense for purposes of determining sanctions under this policy; however, the student-athlete will be ineligible to participate in intercollegiate sports pending an evaluation. The student-athlete entering the Safe Harbor Program will be required to take a drug test immediately to establish a baseline for follow-up testing. A student-athlete will not be permitted to enter the Safe Harbor Program thirty (30) days prior to NCAA or Conference post-season competition. The student-athlete will be required to undergo an evaluation by the Malone University counselor. The Malone University counselor shall determine the appropriate form(s) of intervention and rehabilitation needed by the student-athlete, based on the circumstances of the case. The counselor will provide a summary of his or her findings and recommendations to the Director of Athletics. The student-athlete will be permitted to remain in the Safe Harbor Program for a reasonable period of time, not to exceed thirty (30) days, as determined by the treatment plan. However, the student-athlete will not be permitted to return to participation in intercollegiate sports until the counselor has interviewed the student-athlete following the conclusion of the recommended treatment (or stage of treatment, as applicable) and has determined that reentry into intercollegiate sports is appropriate. If the counselor deems it necessary, the student-athlete will be required to undergo drug testing as part of the reentry evaluation. Failing to complete the treatment recommended by the counselor, or having a positive test for any banned substance that indicates new use after entering the Safe Harbor Program will be deemed the next subsequent offense under this policy. If the student-athlete regains his or her eligibility to participate in intercollegiate sports, he or she may be required to undergo unannounced follow-up tests at the discretion of the University NCAA drug-testing site coordinator appointee in consultation with the counselor. Page 13 of 23

14 Tobacco Use: Use of tobacco products (e.g., cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and smokeless tobacco) poses serious health threats to student-athletes. The U.S. Surgeon General, National Cancer Institute, Center for Disease Control, and the National Institute for Dental Research do not recommend the use of any tobacco products. The objectives of this policy as it relates to use of tobacco are: 1.) To assist student-athletes with tobacco related health problems 2.) To facilitate treatment for student-athletes experiencing tobacco related problems 3.) To provide a uniform policy relating to tobacco use by student-athletes. A. Prohibited Use. The use of tobacco products is prohibited by the Malone Athletic Department. B. Consequences for Prohibited Use. * See Appendix for flow chart of sanctions 1. A student-athlete who self-refers a tobacco products problem to any athletic department staff person will be referred to the Head Athletic Trainer or designee. The student-athlete will then be assessed by a substance abuse counselor, if deemed necessary. 2. If a substance abuse counselor determines that a student-athlete has a tobacco products addiction or health problem, the substance abuse counselor will establish a treatment plan for the student-athlete. 3. If a student-athlete does not comply with the prescribed treatment plan, he/she will be suspended from the intercollegiate athletics program until he/she complies with the prescribed treatment plan. Alcohol Use: Student-athletes may not consume alcohol. Any student-athlete who possesses or consumes alcohol in violation of this policy will be subject to the sanctions. * See Appendix for flow chart of sanctions The following provisions are intended to assist student-athletes with alcohol related problems, provide treatment for student-athletes experiencing alcohol related problems, and provide a uniform policy relating to alcohol use by student-athletes: A. A student-athlete who self-refers an alcohol related problem to any athletic department staff person will be referred to the Head Athletic Trainer or designee. The student-athlete will then be assessed by a substance abuse counselor, if deemed necessary. Page 14 of 23

15 B. Should a student-athlete violate State law, University policy, or a team rule relating to the use of alcohol and should that violation come to the attention of any athletic department staff person, the staff person will notify the Head Athletic Trainer of the violation. The student-athlete will then be assessed by his/her substance abuse counselor, if deemed necessary. C. Should a student-athlete be suspected of consuming alcohol prior to a practice or competition, the student-athlete will be referred to the Head Athletic Trainer or designee. The student-athlete will be withheld from practice or competition and referred to his/her substance abuse counselor for assessment. D. If a substance abuse counselor determines that a student-athlete has an alcohol abuse problem, the substance abuse counselor will establish a treatment plan for the studentathlete. E. If a student-athlete does not comply with the prescribed treatment plan, he/she will be suspended from the intercollegiate athletics program until the student-athlete has complied with the plan. F. If a student-athlete self- refers directly to a substance abuse counselor for an alcohol abuse problem, the counselor will perform a substance abuse assessment. The studentathlete s athletic training staff will be notified in writing of the results of the assessment, including any prescribed treatment plan. Dietary Supplements: Malone University Department of Athletics personnel will not distribute or encourage the use of any dietary supplements or ergogenic aids. Many dietary supplements or ergogenic aids contain banned substances. Often times the labeling of dietary supplements is not accurate and is misleading. Terms such as healthy or all natural do not mean dietary supplements do not contain a banned substance or are safe to take. Using dietary supplements may cause positive drug tests. Student-athletes who are currently taking dietary supplements or intend to take any are recommended to review the product with the Sports Medicine Department. Student-athletes are solely responsible for any substances that they ingest. All student-athletes are encouraged to use the drug Free Sports Resource Exchange Center (REC) to obtain current and accurate information on dietary supplements or ergogenic aids. All inquiries to the REC are confidential. The Resource Exchange Center may be accessed at Page 15 of 23

22 Malone University ADHD Medical Exceptions Questions & Answers Background: The NCAA bans classes of drugs that can be harmful to student-athletes and that can create unfair advantages during competition (NCAA Bylaw ). Some medications that student-athletes are prescribed for legitimate medical reasons contain NCAA banned substances. The NCAA, through the NCAA Committee on Competitive Safeguards and Medical Aspects of Sports (CSMAS) has a procedure to review and approve the use of medications that contain NCAA banned substances through a Medical Exceptions Procedure. What should student-athletes who have been diagnosed with ADHD and/or have been prescribed stimulant medications do? Student-athletes who have been diagnosed with ADHD and/or have been prescribed stimulant medications should immediately notify a member of the Department of Sports Medicine to begin the process of obtaining the necessary documentation. What if a student-athlete has been treated since childhood with ADHD stimulant medications? Student-athletes who have been treated since childhood with ADHD stimulant medications but do not have the pertinent records with regards to the diagnosis, management, and continuing evaluation must undergo a comprehensive evaluation to obtain the necessary documentation. What documentation must the student-athlete obtain from his/her prescribing physician? At a minimum, student-athletes must provide the following documentation from the prescribing physician to the Malone University Department of Sports Medicine. 1. Statement of the diagnosis, including when it was confirmed; 2. A copy of all testing that was performed to reach the diagnosis 3. History of ADHD treatment (previous / ongoing); 4. Statement that a non-banned ADHD alternative has been considered if a stimulant is currently prescribed; 5. Statement regarding follow-up and monitoring visits 6. Copy of the most recent prescription (as documented by the prescribing physician). The aforementioned documentation must be on file with Malone University Department of Sports Medicine in order for the student-athlete to participate in intercollegiate athletics at Malone. All documentation can be sent to: Chris Watson Malone University Department of Sports Medicine 2600 Cleveland Ave, Canton, Ohio Fax Questions regarding issues surrounding ADHD medications and the NCAA Medical Exceptions Policy? Student-athletes and/or parents with questions regarding the diagnosis of ADHD and/or the medication(s) prescribed should start by directing questions to the physician who initially conducted the evaluation and diagnosis. Individuals with specific questions regarding the NCAA Bylaws related to banned substances, drug testing, and/or medical exceptions can view the NCAA website ( and/or contact Chris Watson.
