The criteria included eleven stress factors like physical demand houses and counted and job outlook.
Joining us now is Peter Lorenzen and upon accent and the university of balance so are you was lazy as the study suggests professor.
Well I would.
It's actually debating coming into this interview in a -- your -- and cut offs.
I think I think that you can't see it but I spent a lot of time this morning getting this decrease straight in my khakis for this interview.
After do you have little love the pads on your -- like there's other academics did you have -- I know because -- short arms -- -- has been always beyond.
Over here they wouldn't be where they belong to and then I'd have to mauled by meant everybody knows until lazy to go to the -- and get that done in all seriousness though.
You do have -- calculated that -- -- the a professor has -- you can't get behind.
And if I'm not mistaken you get one year -- off every seven years as a sabbatical fully paid.
And you woke relatively short hours you have a whole summer off you have a -- that Christmas off and that's that's pretty on stressful -- Pretty cushy is it.
What do you covered a lot of ground there first of all.
Do it this sabbatical is they have pay for a year full pay -- -- -- you did just so we get the facts straight.
Hot but up.
You know we were going year round I mean folks don't realize the things that professes do other than teach I mean I have immediate career I've published twice a week and a major metropolitan newspapers.
I'm not syndicated -- at the land -- -- selling them you pay five you pay for that.
-- well -- -- you actually it's very it's very small amounts of money most papers don't pay if I do get paid it's a hundred dollars in the mail or something like that.
It's very marginal.
I it's part of my service activity for the university of raises the the the that visibility.
Other professors don't do that they do other things but you try.
You know a landing a couple of op -- to weaken a major paper on the fox you know.
I network when you're not you when you're not on contract it's pretty tough -- you wanted to let god that was I don't offer me you want to guide -- the -- that cushy life -- are you not.
No I'm not defending the curricula from trying to explain to you what we -- active for example I have a guy down the hall from me who's an expert.
In the integration of new technology into marketing essentially Internet marketing gadgets software and so forth.
That's a 365.
They go -- -- your job trying to keep up.
Another one is an expert in.
The integration of -- of new technology into well it's a logistics management.
Most of -- work about eleven months a year just like everybody else that depends on what level of university -- -- You know if you're -- a relatively you know small school.
Low emissions standards your face a different kind of stress you don't really have the kindest and should like to have to -- university work.
And it's a great deal of effort to to teach -- to be honest because we sent many more people to college -- we show it so watch the price of college keep going up.
Over and above the level of inflation.
All I'm gonna cop bad and that really well but the Wall Street Journal backs me up last week there was an interesting article about the explosion of administrators.
You know at universities and part of that is the cost of keeping up with federal regulation.
But also part of is the competition that we have.
Really compete very strenuously for students.
And so were required to provide all manner of student services that we -- once provide and is a lot of pressure on us to be very inclusive.
And that requires a lot of student does services as well.
It's not from the growth of faculty salaries I got a good one feet Stewart I haven't had a raise.
In six years because of financial conditions in the state of Maryland which is still years -- which job would you rather have.
Mine I don't mind all -- well.
Actually stored I've given the -- I've discovered -- like to meet here over the last ten years are probably like to have viewers.
Not because you have a better job but because I've been doing this so many years and it be nice to have a switch.
Beginning I agreed that there is a difference in stress level between a professor and the TV -- Do you do you think you have a more stressful life and I didn't much more so yes military model I think it's exhilarating I don't know what's that I get up at 3:30 in the morning.
-- morning on the Blackberry by 4 o'clock every morning I'm working with four or five different produces all the way and I walk in the office at 5 o'clock and I've got a series of deadlines that I have to meet.
I do inside your home what -- I go home with about 2 o'clock in the afternoon and then I'm still on the Blackberry.
And then tonight -- have to come back and walk with Sean Hannity lie -- 9 o'clock tonight that's a pretty long day with a lot of stress lot of deadlines you still can't.
I think you should talk to your producers who worked with me at fox and another network some frequently at my desk at 5 AM reading what's going on in Asia.
All appear on this network at 5 o'clock in the morning and 5 o'clock at night I've done that -- many days.
-- I in between I go to the university and teach.
I have colleagues who -- -- who ordinarily pressure to publish who worked twelve hour days six days a week.
Virtually every day of the year.
You know it's very easy to look at someone else's job.
And not seem all that they can just like folks only see you want to be a few hours a day they don't realize all of the preparation and all of the study that goes into doing you know the very offended job that you know I admire.
Hi I'm surprised I think -- little defensive.
Until well continue blaming given the way is set up that question.
Back a very good.
Will have you back okay -- will discuss booking Allison stress ad nauseam.
At noisy and take care yourself that you -- Airbus to see you soon college kids now feel more entitled.
