i know you weren't even born, but, boy, george martin, what a legendary figure in music. responsible for a lot of the music we came to love from the beatles. >> they don't call everyone the fifth beatle. >> no question about it. we're going to have a tribute to sir george in just a little while. but this morning, once again, the presidential race is our top story. let's get right to the results. starting with the republicans, donald trump took the biggest prizes of yesterday. michigan, mississippi and he added hawaii to his list of victories overnight. while ted cruz won by a large margin in idaho, nearly 20 points. and here's how the delegates break down. trump leading with 456. cruz in second with 363. marco rubio who finished no better than third in the four contests, has 153. >> split decision on the democratic side of things. bernie sanders pulled off a rather surprising upset over hillary clinton in michigan, but she scored a decisive victory in mississippi by more than 65 points.
and that has pushed clinton over the halfway mark in the race for delegates needed to lock up that nomination. >> we have complete coverage this morning. we'll talk to donald trump live in a moment. let us begin with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning to you. another strong showing overnight for donald trump. he's padded his delegate lead, reclaimed momentum in this race and he's now shown his ability to clinch the republican nomination will hinge heavily on how well he can do in next week's super tuesday when the states become winner takes all. >> only one person did well tonight, donald trump. i will tell you. >> reporter: donald trump celebrating another step toward the republican nomination with what at times felt more like a late night infomercial. >> the magazine is great, take one. we have trump steaks. by the way, if you want to take one, we'll charge you about, 50 bucks a steak. no i won't. >> reporter: the billionaire who
polarized his party is now calling for unity. >> what i say to the republicans is embrace it. we will win the election easily. >> reporter: trump dismissing his sparring partner, marco rubio, whose campaign suffered a dismal night. >> see, hostility works for some people. it doesn't work for everybody, okay? >> reporter: a stinging defeat for the increasingly well-funded anti-trump movement, but its ad now airing in florida targets trump for using vulgar language. >> i know words. i have the best words. listen, [ bleep ]. he gets the nomination, they'll sue his [ bleep ]. he's a [ bleep ]. i don't give a [ bleep ]. we'll beat the [ bleep ] out of them. >> the "d" word, the "f" word, do you think that's presidential? are you embarrassed by that? >> it's better than any ad i've taken by myself. more presidential than anybody, other than the great abe lincoln. he was very presidential, right? >> reporter: with trump widening his delegate lead over ted cruz. >> if you want to defeat donald trump, our campaign is the only one who can do it. >> reporter: marco rubio's last resort is his home state.
>> i believe with all my heart that the winner of the florida primary next tuesday will be the nominee of the republican party. >> reporter: despite tallying zero wins through 23 states, john kasich, battling for second in michigan, delivered what could have been mistaken for a victory speech. >> and next week we are going to win the state of ohio and it will be a whole new race. >> reporter: so, those big prizes on super tuesday, florida and ohio, and here's what the new numbers show the race. first, donald trump with a wide double-digit lead over marco rubio, the senator from the state, ted cruz in third at 19. in ohio that race is much more competitive, trump still holding onto the lead at 41%. john kasich at 35%. cruz way behind. i spoke to a head of the aenlt-trump movement and they say they didn't compete in any of the states that voted yesterday. they are setting their sights on super tuesday. matt and savannah? >> peter, thank you very much.
donald trump is on the phone with us now live, mr. trump, good morning. >> good morning. >> let me completely reverse my line of questioning from yesterday. yesterday i said, is it possible the weight of all these attacks coming at you from other republicans had slowed your momentum. you went out yesterday and won three of the four contests. so is it possible, mr. trump, the weight of those attacks is actually helping you? >> i think so. i mean, you see the numbers i got in mississippi. i love mississippi and michigan. you see what happened. the numbers were astronomical. i'm surprised, matt, i'm surprised with you. i've never seen such negativity, such negative ads. they came at me. i heard what you said -- somebody said, oh, what are they going to start now? they started -- last week they spent $30 million on negative ads. >> so, the more they call you a con man and fraud, the more your supporters dig in their heels. >> that's one of the reasons i did what i did last night.
i brought out a magazine which i have. you talk about mitt romney, we brought up the steaks. we have a great steak division. we have a great magazine. we have a great -- all the things he talked about. you know, i have. and, you know, he went through a list of things. i don't even want to do that. but what he said was a lie. it was fraudulent. he shouldn't have done that. py understand where he's coming from. he had a very horrible loss and he hasn't, you know, recovered from it. >> you have to stop because you're making me hungry. >> i know. you know, matt, the truth s he had a loss. he hasn't recovered. we have to recover as a party, though. this tremendous positive energy in this party. we're setting records going to the polls. records, 65% up. millions and millions of people -- some people have never voted before. and they're voting for trump and they're voting in the party. >> that's a good way to get to the next question because on these election nights you've been saying, i'm a unifier. i can unify the party. yet you do have this big segment
of the party, orthodox, conservatives, traditional republicans who are, frankly, terrified at the prospect of your candidacy. so, to the extent it is on you to do so, how can you unify? how can you get them over to your side? >> savannah, we supper something going on that's the biggest political story all over the world and it's what's happening with the republican party. you see is it better than anybody. where millions of people are coming out and voting in the primaries. millions more than four years ago. millions. 65% more. whereas the democrats are down 30 and 35%. there's no spirit behind hillary. there never will be. she's not going to engender spirit. there's nothing to be spirited about. and what happens is we have something that if we could embrace it, we'll have a massive victory in november. we're going to have a massive victory. but, you know, instead of all this negative stuff, i was at tournament last week at trump national doral where adam scott won and i turn on television, and every time there's a
commercial, it was a negative ad in florida about me. a horrible and false ad. these are false ads. these are disgusting, false ads written by people that are absolute haters. if this party came together, matt, nobody could beat it. that's one of the things i respect. paul ryan called me such a smart call, such a wonderful call. >> all right. donald trump, mr. trump, as always, thanks for your time this morning. we appreciate it. >> thanks, matt. >> we got the wines in there, the steaks in,there the magazine in there. what else -- >> doral. >> oh, yeah. >> branding has been accomplished. as we mentioned, though, the upset of the night went to bernie sanders, stunning hillary clinton in michigan, but will that victory do much to reshape the democratic race and the delegate race? nbc's kristin welker has more on that. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. secretary clinton wakes up with more delegate this is morning but senator sanders has new momentum after that major upset in michigan. the win is significant because it shows he can be competitive
in these larger, more diverse statsz. so a lot of folks asking this morning, exactly what happened. well, there are indications this morning that clinton's ground game in michigan may have been lacking. and sanders' message resonated, he troupsed on michigan on her trade deals like nafta. sanders even seemed surprised by the win, speaking to reporters in a hastily arranged press gathering after the results came in. take a listen. >> what we've done is create the kind of momentum we need to win. once again, this has been a fantastic night in michigan. we're very grateful. >> reporter: we're getting new poll numbers out this morning. the quinnipiac poll, take a look at florida. secretary clinton firmly in the lead there. she tops senator sanders 52% to 43%. michigan underscores this democratic race just got a whole lot more competitive everywhere.
>> thank you. let's bring in chuck todd and steve kornacki. good morning to you. let's start with democrats because this victory for bernie sanders was a surprise -- most especially bernie sanders and his team. what does it mean in terms of the delegate math and momentum? >> the delegate math it didn't do anything. technically hillary clinton got more delegates last night because of her dominance in mississippi. he didn't make up any ground. he actually lost ground. it does mean something in momentum. i think it's a reminder to hillary clinton she has work to do to gain trust of sort of the skeptical part of the democratic party when it comes to trade deals and this or that. the better she learns this now, the better she will potentially be as a candidate against donald trump, who's going to go at her the same way on the same issues. this could mean, look, bernie sanders, if he wins in michigan, he could win in ohio.
you have wisconsin in april. there's a bunch of northern tier states. >> we know donald trump had a big night. marco rubio had a terrible day. if it weren't for the fact florida is on the calendar next tuesday s is there any way he could stay in the race? >> it's not only that. you look at that performance, it was so bad for marco rubio. maybe under normal circumstances, a candidate in that situation might think about, do i even want to contest my home state? this is the problem for rubio and why it was a big win for trump last night. early voting is already underway under way in florida. tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of votes already in the books in florida. if marco rubio were to say, i'm going to get out of the race, we're going to let the party unite around ted cruz, even if it united from this point forward around cruz, wouldn't be enough to stop trump in florida. in florida, winner take all. you get 99 delegates if you win. donald trump is in a good spot right now. >> if trump wins ohio and
florida, he'll be the republican nominee. he can get to that majority. how is this evert, the anti-trump effort to take away florida, take away ohio, how is that looking this morning? >> he has a better shot at ohio than florida because john kasich is a sitting governor. you get the sense florida republicans aren't comfortable rallying around marco rubio. ohio regions are comfortable rallying around john kasich, so that's advantage kasich. but it's still not looking good. everything went as well as it could for trump. kasich finished third, not second in michigan. no extra bump. of course, what we described with rubio. neither kasich nor rubio got momentum out of last night going into their home states. it's trump with the momentum. >> do we look at polling differently going forward, since there seemed to be bumps in the road? >> we are under sampling, i think, and all pollsters are doing it, undersampling the trump coalition. >> you agree? >> i agree. >> i'll give him a pass in michigan.
it's the first democratic state in 24 years. >> he said he's pulling in non-traditional voters. >> we're not correctly polling the trump pollsters. i'm talking about it this morning. >> thanks. let's turn to an overnight arrest to the weekend shooting of an idaho pastor the day after he led a prayer at a ted cruz rally. the suspect taken into custody more than 2,000 miles away from the shooting at the white house. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams has the latest on this. pete, good morning, what can you tell us? >> the secret service says this man was arrested after throwing nonhazardous materials over the white house fence and then officers discovered he was wanted in idaho. police say the man has written that the president needed to do more to resist space aliens. >> reporter: the secret service says kyle andrew odom was seen outside the white house tuesday night throwing what are described as documents and a computer flash drive over the fence. the scene around the white house was still active hours later. the 30-year-old was immediately taken into custody, putting an
end to a three-day manhunt. >> i think everyone can breathe a big sigh of relief, that at least this part of the case, has come to a conclusion. >> reporter: the case started in just a day earlier pastor tim remington had delivered the opening prayer at a campaign rally for ted cruz. >> you get all the glory, all the honor, all the praise for it, lord. >> reporter: remington was walking outside when he was shot. video showed a silver 2004 honda accord linked to the former marine. police now believe odom flew from boise, idaho, to washington, on monday but they're still baffled how he managed to elude them and bored the plane in the first place. police say the idaho shooting was not a random act and the
pastor was not the only tart. he revealed his plan sent to his parents and news media. >> there's a number of people that were listed in the manifesto. there's a number of u.s. senators and house of representatives people, israeli government officials. it was extensive and it was disturbing to us. >> reporter: authorities in idaho say the pastor who was shot in the head and back is recovering, awake and talking. as for the man that was arrested, members of their family are saying they're grateful he was safely apprehended and no one was hurt. >> pete williams with the story. thank you. this morning we're learning a lot more about the american killed in a stabbing rampage in israel. the attack coming as vice president joe biden arrived there for some key talks. nbc's kelly cobielle is here this morning. >> a west point grad with a brilliant future. that's how the vice president describes taylor force. he was visiting israel, out for
a walk by the sea when he was stabbed. >> reporter: a bloodbath on jaffa's main sea front promen e promenade. tourists out, commuters on their way home when the attack was started. 10 wounded, the sidewalk stained red. the man with the knife was caught on cell phone video running down the seaside street trying to stab drivers stuck in traffic. it took 20 minutes to stop him. witnesses tried to help. >> there was a man on the floor with stab wounds here and on his back. i took off my jacket and i put it on his eye. >> reporter: american taylor force died at the hospital. the 29-year-old veteran of iraq and afghanistan was studying business at vanderbilt university, in tel aviv on a school trip to share his insights and knowledge with startups in israel. the university said, describing force as a young and hopeful life who exemplified the spirit of discovery, learning and
service. the stabbing spree was one of three attacks by palestinians across israel in just over 1 1/2 hours tuesday. the worst day of violence in weeks. vice president joe biden meeting with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu today was just a mile from the stabbing in jaffa where force was killed. >> my wife and my two grandchildren and granddaughter are having dinner on the beach not very far from where that happened. it can happen anywhere at any time. >> the vice president also saying this morning that the u.s. stands firmly behind israel's right to defend itself along with passing his condolences to the victim's families. this morning israeli media is reporting that taylor force's wife was also stabbed and is in critical condition. nbc news has not been able to independently confirm that. matt? savannah? >> awful story. >> breaking news out of seattle overnight. nine firefighters taken to the

side. the key groups that supported donald trump. he dominated among voters who say they were looking for a candidate who tell it like it is. he was strong among those looking for someone outside the political establishment and winning big chunks with working class voters and voters looking for a change candidate as well. there are still some big divisions within the party right now revealed by these numbers right here. when asked if they would be satisfied with donald trump as the party nominee, only 28% of ted cruz supporters said yes. the vast majority said no. for john kasich, the number was even smaller. barely one in five kasich voters saying they'd be satisfied with trump as their nominee. switching sides to the democrats right now, that stunning upset in michigan with hillary clinton losing to bernie sanders. the top quality that sanders supporters say they were looking for in a candidate was honesty. he outperformed among
independents, among voters under the age of 45, those young voters that are critical for democrats and also among whites. that's the backdrop as we head into super tuesday less than a week from now. >> the next battleground of florida thank you. let's turn to the sad news from the beginning of the show. george martin, known as the fifth beatle has died. we have a look at his remarkable life and career. >> martin is the man who signed the beatles when no one else would. his work with them help create the sounds of the beatles. he was known as the fifth beating, record producer george martin was the man behind the band. after hearing their demo tape in 1962, sir george guided them through their skyrocketing ride to fame. an unlikely fit at first, this straight laced english gentleman
arranged some of the most ground-break music of the generation. he put his face in john lennon and paul mccartney as songwriters adding his unique spin on their records. he suggested they speed up the tempo on a ball lad which was their first number one hit. the rest of course is music history. from sergeant peppers lonely hearts club band, to abbey road, garnering six grammys and even an oscar nod for the score for "a hard day's night." tributes have been flooding social media all morning. ringo starr broke the news on twitter. paul mccartney issued a statement saying george was a true gentleman and like a second father to him. his legacy in the music business went well beyond the beatles too and was part of the sound track
of our lives. from james bond to elton john, martin was one of the minds behind this moving tribute to the late princess diana. ♪ in more modern times, he took a reimagined beatles to las vegas, creating a new album in the process. but the legacy this beatles boss leaves behind means that we never really have to say good-bye. ♪ >> i mean, you go back and listen to "yesterday," the string quartet in that song, that's the impact of sir george. he took that sound from the '60s and transformed it into the complex psychedelic sound of sergeant pepper. in my life. it's actually sir george playing the piano on that. major loss today. >> thank you for that.
>> let's get a check of that weather. >> ready to say good-bye to winter? amen! >> amen! >> these temperatures, we're going to start passing the plate. highs 25 to 35 degrees above average in the northeast. look at these temperatures, record highs in portland, boston islip. we are expecting to break these records today or come awfully close. as we move into the appalachi s appalachians, temperatures coming awfully close to records. more wet weather in the paesk northwest. we're looking for showers and thunderstorms, but the heavier thunderstorms and the possibility of tornados east texas and throughout much of louisiana. and high surf advisories along we're still seeing light rain showers around.

doesn't quite look the same. it turns out there is a company that makes a special skinny mirror, telling us they're even selling the mirror to clothing stores. it is designed to make you look thinner. is that fair, or just the way to get you to buy more? this morning, see for yourself. >> taller. >> slimmer. >> reporter: what these women don't know, they're looking at themselves in the skinny mirror. designed to make you look 5 to 10 pounds thinner. >> really? >> reporter: on its website, the company saying the mirror works on the psyche over time, giving users instant gratification of a slimmer you. the company says they're selling the mirror to customers, now even clothing stores. boasting it'll boost retail sales by 18%. >> retailers will use skinny mirrors to deceive consumers into looking a certain way when they try on their clothing. and the better they look, the more likely they are to buy something. >> reporter: so we put it to the
test. setting up our cameras and a skinny mirror in new york. asking women to simply pick something out and try it on. >> tell me how you look in this mirror. >> i look all right. i don't think the dress fits me. >> look over here in this mirror. this is a skinny mirror. it's designed to make you look 5 to 10 pounds thinner. >> i would say that's true, yes. >> would you maybe buy the dress, based on how you look in this? >> probably. >> reporter: in fact, several women noticing the difference. >> longer and slimmer, for sure. >> what do you make of this practice? >> it's deceiving. the clothes look better in the store than they do in real life. when i get home, it doesn't look the same. >> this is where we do all the packing and shipping. >> reporter: we went straight to the owner of the skinny mirror company. >> it's not about making people look good, it's about making them feel good. >> is this deceptive to women and all customers when used in a store? i may buy something that looks good in the skinny mirror but
maybe not at home. >> okay. >> take a break? >> yes. >> reporter: less than two minutes into the interview, her husband interrupts. he helps make the mirrors. >> can i take a minute? >> you have to. you have no choice. >> reporter: after they talk in a back room, she returns with an answer. >> every single mirror is different. so if it's not a skinny mirror, even when you go into a dressing room, if the mirrors are not mounted properly, every single mirror in each dressing room is going to be different. >> but yours is taking weight off of me. >> well, it's taking weight off of a normal mirror. a normal mirror actually makes you look 5 to 10 pounds heavier than you do in real life. >> reporter: physics experts tell nbc news it's not true. flat mirrors shouldn't add weight at all. as we continue to ask questions, her husband interrupts again. >> stand up for yourself, not answer his questions. stand up for yourself.
remember, you can tell him to get the [ bleep ] out of here, and he can have no story. >> reporter: they don't kick me out, instead saying this isn't misleading. it's just clever marketing. >> isn't that what commercialism does? buy your make ups aup and you'l more beautiful? buy these clothes and you'll be more fancy? >> reporter: a lot of people say it's deception. >> i would love a mirror that makes me look thinner at home. >> what about the store? >> no. the customer doesn't know what they truly look like. >> i'm sorry. just checking myself out here in the skinny mirror. by the way -- thank you very much, guys. the company says they put a logo on every mirror so you know it is a skinny mirror. we brought one to the studio to take a look. can you see the logo anywhere? >> where? >> i'll show you. all the way down here on the bottom right. so small -- >> what does it say? >> i can cover it with the edge of my pinky. >> says skinny? >> skinny.
it says the word "skinny" with their logo. the company says they originally designed this to sell to customers. they do sell to customers. retailers started calling to use in dressing rooms so they started fulfilling the orders. >> how can i get several of these mirrors at my home? >> we have one in our office and stand in front of it all day. >> a lot of women said they'd want this in their home. do you want it in a store? >> no way. the minute you see a picture of yourself and what you really like -- >> you delete the picture. >> reality denied. >> jeff, thanks. coming up, pop start. >> mean girls the musical? what tina fey is saying about what tina fey is saying about those chances and the original what tina fey is saying about those chances and the original i use what's already inside me to reach my goals. so i liked when my doctor told me i may reach my blood sugar and a1c goals by activating what's within me.

have a massive victory in november. we're going to have a massive victory. >> reporter: ted cruz winning idaho and picking up delegates everywhere, adding to his argument, it's becoming a two-man race. as he looks ahead to florida. >> realistically, polls show you behind in florida. >> it's interesting, you said that before each of the other states we won. we're competing to win each and every state. >> reporter: for marco rubio, a serious struggle. no delegates at all in some states with less than a week left to show he hasn't collapsed. >> i believe with all my heart that the winner of the florida primary next tuesday will be the nominee of the republican party. >> reporter: john kasich looking ahead to ohio, looking past rubio all together. >> the three of us competing for the delegates that remain, we are in a virtual dead heat among those. >> reporter: democrats, dramatically down to the wire in michigan, where an upset win by bernie sanders lets him live to fight another day.
>> what we have done is created the kind of momentum that we need to win. once again, this has been a fantastic night in michigan. >> reporter: hillary clinton carrying mississippi, not able to put the race away. >> i will work my heart out for you. >> in just six days, you've got contests in states like here in north carolina but, more importantly, in florida and in ohio, tamron. if donald trump can win those, he looks like a near lock on the republican nomination. >> hallie jackson, thank you very much. a warning from iran from vice president joe biden, who is in the middle east. biden said the u.s. will take action if iran violates the nuclear deal it agreed to last year. israel was against the deal. biden's warning came shortly after iran announced it test fired two ballistic missiles with the phrase, israel must be wiped out, written on them in
hebrew. now to wild video out of cutter. you can see in it a tiger in bumper to bumper traffic, running between cars. the tiger is in the bubble. the animal has a broken chain attached to his collar and appeared to be someone's pet. it is illegal to own exotic animals, such as tigers and lions, but apparently not uncommon. a man is shown pulling the tiger out from under a car and recapturing it. >> what is he doing? >> looks like a cub, which i guess is the only upside of this. no, that's not a cub. >> i think it actually is a cub but, still, you don't get out of the car. >> no, you do not. >> where do you pull a tiger out? >> here, kitty, kitty. >> tamron, thank you. let's turn to surprising research now that's getting a lot of attention. erica hill is here with more on that. good morning. >> good morning. we hear about lung cancer. the majority of lung cancers are
linked to smoking but we find connections between carbs we enjoy and an elevated risk of the disease. >> reporter: we know too many carbohydrates can be dangerous for your waistline. now, researchers say they may cause an increased risk of lung cancer. even if you've never been a smoker. the study conducted by the university of texas md anderson cancer center compared roughly 2,000 patients with lung cancer to 2,500 without. researchers found non-smokers whose diets had a high gls glrk ycemic index had two times the chance of getting lung cancer than those with a low one. >> the sugar in whatever food you're eating rushes into your bloodstream. it's not combined with fiber which would slow the release. >> reporter: white bread,pretze white potatoes. carbs that can easily turn into
sugar. >> you don't just worry about cigarettes anymore. focus on how much sugar flows into your bloodstream from the foods you're eating. easy to reverse. >> reporter: with 150,000 people in the u.s. expected to die from lung cancer this year, it's the leading cause after cancer deaths and the second most common in women and men. >> i think it's an easy step to do right now. every morning, instead of two lumps of sugar in your coffee or tea, swap out one for cinnamon. >> reporter: in addition to exercise and healthy habits, opt for foods with a smaller glycemic index. >> sugar wasn't supposed to be a meal. it was a spice, like pepper. that's the amount you should be getting in your diet. >> that puts things in perspective. it's more of a spice. fruits and vegetables are great for you. dairy, red meat and saturated fat and now white carbs. >> more of an issue.
>> science gives us the same lesson over and over again. let's send it over to matt for more. >> i'm here with dr. natalie azar. doctor, good to see you. before we talk about the results, tell me about the research itself. >> matt, i think it's important to remember that this was a study called a case controlled study. this is in contrast to the gold standard, prospectively designed studies. the case-controlled study only demonstrates an association between two things, not a cause and effect. >> does this mean i don't have to give up my pretzels and bagels? is. >> no, i think it means although the association is not a cause and effect, it's still a strong, compelling finding. as savannah pointed out, it's not necessarily new or scientific that bad carbs would be bad for you. >> it reinforces this. it's shocking for people who will say, wait a minute, even if i wasn't a smoker or am not a
smoker, i have this diet with a high glycemic index, i'm at greater risk. >> right. here is where a little bit of the science background is useful. the glycemic index is how quickly your blood sugar rises when you eat a food. when you have too much sugar in the blood, elevated glucose level, you get an elevated insulin level. it raises all these other factors that can promote cell proliferation and that can be a cause or that's how cancers can grow. >> what percentage of our diet should be the refined carbohydrates? >> if you go back to the dietary guidelines, no more than 10%. but we know that refined sugars can increase the risk, weight gain, diabetes, heart disease and stroke, the things you want to avoid. white flour, added sugars, fructose in drinks, as well as all processed foods. the easiest way to think about
it is what would your great, great, great grandparents called food? the packaged and things? no, rather a whole corn than cornflakes. >> doctor, thank you very much. up next, ever ask your waiter or the bartender to charge your iphone? why it could lead to a lot of embarrassment. we'll explain. later on, nba superstar steph curry making a splash off the court. why these kids dumped cold water on the league's mvp. one of the most talent and had versatile men in hollywood. had versatile men in hollywood. john goodman will join us. does the smell of a freshly bound presentation had versatile men in hollywood. john goodman will join us. fill you with optimism? do you love your wireless keyboard more than certain family members? is your success due to a filing system only you understand? does printing from your tablet to your wireless printer give you a jolt of confidence? if so, you may be gearcentric.
