Pawan Dhingra, Amherst College After-School Academics in an Era of Remote Learning
"After school education is taking hold during online learning at schools. I'm dr lynn. Pascarella president of the association of american colleges and universities and today on the academic minute ponding gra professor of american studies at amherst. College wondered if it helps or hinders children now. The remote learning has become the norm peres increasingly worried that their children may not be learn as much as they can. This anxiety has fueled an already growing interest in for profit. After school tutoring companies as kumaon math nauseam and others even for children performing well in school visit. Despite many educator says that such learning can limit children that it works as educational inequality what drives parents to invest your time and money after school education. And does it make sense to do so. During my research. I spent time with more than one hundred families who pursue supplemental education for their young children and talk with teachers called emissions officers and others. I found that parents whose children are doing fine in school. Still seek out after school. Academics were to make them competitive often worried about entry to college parents. He neighboring kids in such spaces and so worried that their kids won't be able to keep up. also learned. That tutoring works better under certain conditions and that respect not all companies can provide those conditions. Instructors need to be able to connect the content children's experiences to make the children more interested. For example what's more classes are most effective was smaller tutor student. Ratios parents use outside. Learning centers should ask how those businesses incentivize learning ask for references. If she doesn't prove resistant stop you want to instill lifelong learners. So their interest is essential education landscape is changing and private companies are playing more of a role we to understand their popularity and their effects nor to create the learning environment. We want for all children. That was tallin dhingra of amherst college.
Supreme Court to Hear Appeal of Ruling That Overturned Boston Marathon Bomber's Death Sentence
"Radio boston. I'm donna deering and we start today with another major development in the country's largest drug lab scandal suffolk. County district attorney. Rachel rollins says that her office could vacate up to tens of thousands more criminal convictions. That were based on drug evidence tested at the now closed hinton lab. Wbu our senior correspondent. Deborah becker is reporting on the story. Deb joins us now dead. Welcome back to radio boston. Thanks for having me so deb. D. rollins is proposing to vacate any drug convictions based on results. From the hinton lab from may two thousand three to august two thousand twelve why that nine year time window will. That was the time period when two chemists worked at the hinton lab at the same time. Any dukan and sony ferrick you may remember. Both women were convicted on charges of tampering. With the drug evidence they were supposed to be testing fair conviction though stemmed from her work at the state lab in amherst but both women worked at the hinton lab. At one time. Eric worked there before she went to amherst. Rollin says what's needed is a more thorough review of all the drugs certifications that came from the hinton lab wild. Both women were working there. She calls the drug lab scandal. Systemic misconduct and a catastrophic failure of management that she says needs a complete review so all the testing done at that lab during that time should be looked at and we should point out that after both chemists were convicted tens of thousands of criminal drug convict. Convictions were dismissed because of their misconduct. We're talking about more. Give us a sense of scale here. Deb how many people might this effect will will. There's no precise number but rollins office says is that the hinton lab certified almost eighty three thousand drug samples for evidence during that time and that was in suffolk county and the massachusetts supreme judicial court which has reviewed various challenges and calls for a way to deal with all of the cases in both labs has vacated thousands of convictions based on the testing and hidden lab alone about eight thousand from hinton so the remaining seventy four thousand drug certifications that rollins talking about from suffolk county. She says her office is going to review all of those and they could be part of what she says is a global resolution to deal with these cases once and for all and thousands more convictions could be erased. But there's no exact number because one drug certification could have several drug certifications could have been done for one case so. The exact number is unclear. Got it got it. But it's it's a lot to review. So how does it work are they. Are they essentially starting deb with the assumption that all the convictions must be vacated and then working backward from there as they review the cases. How are they gonna do this well. She says she's going to convene robin says. She's going to convene a summit next month with the defense bar to start this review look at every affected case all the drugs certifications and determine next steps and she says any relief in what she's calling her hinton lab initiative is only for controlled substances convictions. And if someone was charged with something else along with drug use or possession or whatever the drug charges may have been those charges withstand this would only be drug charges in a particular case and then after that they would look at expunging records. If need be it would be a very lengthy complicated process. So our defense attorneys reacting to this well The aclu the american civil liberties union of massachusetts which was the agency really primarily involved in fighting with the s sjc to try to get some sort of resolution for many of these cases that were based on evidence tested at the hinton lab and at the amherst lab. It says it is. It's pleased that rollins has done. This here is matt siegel whose legal counsel for the aclu of massachusetts certainly would our preference and the preference of the public defenders are law firm partners for all of these cases have been dismissed when we first started calling for that step in twenty twelve. There's a saying about the arch of justice and At this point were very glad that seems to be bending in the right direction. I think as referring there to the you know the arc of the moral universals long but it bends toward justice but regardless also the State criminal defender agency. The committee for public counsel services released a statement after They heard about rachel rollins initiative the hidden lab and it also said that. It's pleased that this is happening. And it hopes that other district attorneys will do the same. So will they deb. Do you think we'll other. Da's follow suit. And i guess. I'm wondering if somehow this forces their hands if they have to. Now i don't think anyone necessarily
Who Wins Or Loses If There's An Increase In The Federal Minimum Wage?
"The covid relief bill moving through congress includes a higher minimum wage for someone like lisa harris. Who works grocery store outside richmond. Virginia that make a big difference able to afford the things that i need to get by day to day without having to ask one ability to feel that i am a contributing member to byatti. I mean they say thank you and that were essential. That were heroes. But we can't feed our families off of being heroes scaling up from seven. Twenty five an hour to fifteen dollars. An hour is still running into resistance though and testing democratic unity in congress. David wessel is following. The debate is of the hutchins center at the brookings institution. David good morning. Good morning steve. So there's always case made against raising the minimum wage. We're told that if you raise the minimum wage employers are just going to hire fewer people. What's the evidence here. Well textbook economic says if you raise the price of something there's going to be less demand for it. In this case less demand from employers for low wage essential workers now the question is how many winners and how many losers one influential estimate comes from the congressional budget office. They estimate that by twenty twenty five which is when the wages supposed to get to fifteen dollars. It would mean twenty. Seven million people would be getting a raise. Nine hundred thousand fewer people would be in poverty but one point four million fewer people would be working or not having got hired on the other hand economist. Aaron debate at the university of massachusetts at amherst has been looking at what happens when states raise minimum wages and he argues that the latest evidence suggests that. Cbo is overestimating the ill effects of raising the wage. A fifteen bucks okay. So a lot of people benefit. Some people may be hurt. But there's an argument over how many people are actually hurt. That's the point of view of the employees. What about the employer. business owners objected. Here well it would raise their payroll costs for sure now. Some employers would may discover that they have better workers or less turnover so it might not hurt them that much some would suck it up in the form of lower profits somewhat. Pass it onto their consumers in the form of higher prices and some would get by with fewer workers are cut the hours of their workers they would clearly be very painful for some businesses and particularly for some businesses like those in the fast food industry that already been hit hard by the covid pandemic but really interesting new academic paper that looked at ten thousand mcdonald's outlets many of them in states or cities that have raised. The minimum wage found that nearly all of them raise prices to cover the extra costs and interestingly it found that despite higher labor costs they didn't more of them didn't install high-tech touch screen ordering that potentially saves labor which suggests that consumers would pay but workers would benefit as well. David you've referred a couple of times here to the fact that some states have already raised the minimum wage. Well above what the federal minimum is. When you look at this debate does it. Matter what part of the country we're looking at it matters a lot. Twenty nine states and the district of columbia have set their minimum wages above the federal seven. Twenty five and hour minimum and so have several cities raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars. An hour across the country would have a huge impact on some states in the south that are paying seven two thousand five hundred minimum wage or state like west virginia where the minimum wage is now. Eight dollars and seventy five cents an hour. That's of course politically important. Because democrat senator joe manchin has indicated. He's against a fifteen hour wage and his opposition could be fatal to the proposal but a fifteen dollars. Minimum wage would have much less impact in states. Like california where it's already set to go to fifteen dollars. It's thirteen dollars now. And in florida voters in november approved a referendum that takes their minimum wage to fifteen bucks over the next few years no matter what congress does anything special about going up to exactly fifteen an hour. Not really it's politically important. The fact is that the minimum wage has been stuck at seven twenty five since two thousand nine. It would be close to nine dollars. An hour fifty kept up with inflation since

Voice AI in Europe Year-in-Review 2020: Voice Assistants and Privacy Issues
"One of things. I do Just for the audience's give you a little perspective before we go into this. I have some ideas of things that i think are big stories of the year that we should talk about. But i also ask guests to suggest some things and top of the list for nave. Was privacy concerns around voice technology. And i think interestingly enough this is a topic we didn't really talk much about by. Us guests when we did a yard review just just a few days ago but europe has different views on this in there has been. There's been a lot of movement at the regulatory level. You know clearly there's consumer privacy advocacy going on europe. Tell me a little bit about why you think that was one of the top in twenty twenty four voice. Yeah it's funny. You say that about your your you ask us. I mean privacy came as is a big story twenty. Nineteen ridi ryan's with all of those events with you know confident top story. I would say twenty nineteen. I mean everything a month. There was another expose in lower telling a story. So i guess you could argue that. It's trending nineteen story but privacy has become such a big part of the way we talk about voice technology. Certainly it's a box labs when it comes to kids that it's something that all of our clients are talking to us about all the time and i told you know it may well have come as and been a mainstream media topic in twenty nine teen but everybody is still talking about. Voice are bad privacy and in fact they're more educated parents because children being remote learning all year long this year with the pandemic you know that concern on the parents size but also in terms of our kinds of companies on the entertainment companies. I think when you look at the numbers it's really interesting to see the wild keeper more education than have more concerns about privacy and bread. You guys did a survey on this year. Yourselves of as trust issues with voice assistance at we can still see the numbers of people. Buying them are going up enough so to me that translates to adults thinking okay. I'll you consent to use my voice if you give me. Convenience in utility voice under bassett tradeoff that adults are willing to to go if they think about it at all rise but the very different construct when it comes to kids you know i mean when you think a bad kids invoice are really comfortable as parents of young kids to allow our kids voices to be used as data accumulation exercise where you know they can be profiled for at driven business models where the utility in the business model are combined. And i think a lot of people when they sound bites and think about that Browns there are concerns when it comes to car manufacturers toy manufacturers education companies. I say when it comes to privacy one of the reasons why is because for kids voices not a nice to have. It's not just a convenience. As technology has become more accurate. It's become a necessity for kids to use voice technology and more and more as becomes ubiquitous in classrooms. And at home kids voices will be used at the natural interface with lots and lots of technology. So we come to take you for granted thus kedah invoices stages collected unused posts consent in exactly the same way as as stages use storage and processed in the exact same ways. So for me. I guess the the stark paying about twenty twenty was we had all of this ad crying. Twenty nineteen very little changed in twenty twenty on regulation. We can't really expect regulation to turn it off on you know it's up and eighteen. Chapman best just not realistic but it is realistic for at the market to reflect some of those concerns and for companies like us who are privacy by design from the get-go who built from grand four privacy from since twenty thirteen to have it now as a competitive advantage. That privacy is something that's built into our system in amherst seeing a lot of people asking us bag privacy so you know. I think it's issue that will continue to be there and i think for kids. It's absolutely fundamental rise and and we'd like to hear more our compatriots in the voice space token

Who is the ceo of or a firm that assists restaurants with online ordering tells me that what it was expected to happen over. The next ten years with a growth in online thing actually happened in a few months. The hallway that consumers interact with restaurants has fundamentally changed. He's been advocating that. Many restaurants will be operating in smaller venues but with bigger kitchens too because so many people have gotten so comfortable clicking buttons on their phones and using delivery apps like doordash uber eats postmates to bring the food home. Now researcher incisive predicts the digital sales will make up more than half or fifty four percent of all restaurant sales by twenty twenty five and as you know walking down the street and seeing your local restaurant is a very sad thing right now because over one hundred thousand restaurants have closed since the pandemic. And who knows what's gonna happen over the next few months. Alex kanter whose family owns the iconic.

Choosing A College When You Don't Know Your Major
"It might surprise you to know that fifty percent of students enter College as Undeclared Majors undecided or Undead. Layered refers to an admitted or an enrolled student who has not yet selected a major now while there's nothing wrong with being Undeclared. It does mean that you have to ask yourself different questions about your building your college list. For example, you would need to think about which schools are best for undecided students. What makes a good college for undecided majors and should I go to a college with a lot of Majors or apply to specific schools many different types of schools. So what does it mean to be undecided again off when you apply and you haven't selected a major and a major is an area of study that you pursue through your course work. For instance. If you're a history major, you're going to take a majority took courses in history. And if you're an engineering major, you're going to spend a lot of time taking engineering classes and upper level math classes. So one thing I want you to know that job Being an undecided major is temporary. You don't graduate from college undecided the purpose of coming in as an undecided or Undeclared major is to get the student time to decide on what they truly want to major in before they have to declare it now different schools have different times when a student needs to declare their major and maybe at the end of their first year or the beginning of their second year and there are some schools that allow you up to your junior year to declare your major. Now, I do want you to know that being undecided wage doesn't mean that you can't build your list. It just means that you have a different checklist and a different criteria for picking your universities. So let's talk about things that you need to consider as an Undeclared major. So number one decide on the location. Do you want to stay close to home or are you willing to travel a distance to get your education wage? This could open up possibilities as you're thinking through your college list. So decide on the limits of how far you're willing to travel is a necessary First Step number to think about your in-game. So what is your ultimate career goal? And even if you're not very clear on exactly what it is you want to do think about a general area or some common themes about what it is that you want to do and then begin to write down a list of all of the majors that will help you get to that career goal. So, you know, if you want to start college Undeclared and you're thinking about, you know, various Majors many different majors and you can't just pick one then you might benefit from options provided by larger University so that you have more Majors from which to choose so try to find a school that offers a great number of authors. Ends that you're potentially interested in and then that way as you're taking some of your first year courses your core courses it gives you time to think through exactly what it is that you want to change number three consider an open curriculum college. Now, there are some colleges with what's called an open curriculum program is designed to enable students to develop their own program of study with the help of Faculty advisors. So schools like Amherst Brown Wake Forest vs are offer Open golf program. So you go in and you really go in Undeclared and you're allowed to build your course of study with the help of your advisor off. So, you know think again about those types of colleges on your list number four, and I think this one's really important but make sure you have support Wrap-around support services. So there are some colleges that have advising for Undeclared undecided majors and it's really important to make sure that you know the schools on your list do Provide support for students who check that box on their application as undistracted or Undeclared schools such as University of Maine and also USC University of Southern California. They have very strong Undeclared advising for students to help them begin to think about what it is that they want to do number five think about extracurricular activities, you know, you you're thinking of, you know, don't just focus on the program of study. But if you're as you're looking at schools, you want to take a look at the types of wage Opportunities and experiences experiences that you can have through society's through professional organizations. For example, let's say you'll enjoy writing but you're not exactly sure what you want to do with that. Well, maybe there's a campus magazine or journalism club or a college paper. Those are all great ways for them to explore writing a little bit more to see the type of writing a major you may be interested in pursuing. So it's important to get some of that real life experience and you can use the extra curricular activities as ways to do some Discovery as well as Co-op experiences research opportunities and jobs internships any kind of hands-on experience and positions that will allow you to discover a little bit more what it is that you may want to do Thursday.
What If Trump Refuses to Concede?
"Lawrence Douglas era professor of law at Amherst. College Massachusetts you write for The Guardian and you've published a book called Donald Trump will he go about whether the president would actually step down if he loses. Interestingly. The rhetoric we're hearing now is an knew he was working from the same script in two, thousand and sixty, I can promise and pledge. To all of my voters and supporters. And to all of the people of the United States. Then I will totally accept. The results of this, great and historic. Presidential election. If I win. The remaining. When you started worrying about what you're hearing? will extinct many Americans pretty gobsmacked by the last presidential debate that he conducted with Hillary Clinton. Chris Wallace said, will you accept the results? No matter. What do you make the same until you will absolutely sir that you will. Accept the result of this election and I think trump just kinda refused to admit I will look at it at the I'm not looking at anything now I look at it at the time, and then for swallowed pushed him a little harder in that and trump threatened the tourist the answer I will tell you at the time I'll keep you in suspense. I remember watching that in gang Wow that's an astonishing thing to hear the candidate of a major party say and I have to say at the time I also thought, wow, he's finished. You cannot. You cannot refuse to accept electoral results match just kind of attacking norms of constitutional democracy. So I kind of thought at the time that he was. His own coffin shot. A so much for my prognostications, but even when he won they theme continued from him didn't it guess it did in fact, right after his election I actually started writing as a contributing opinion writer to the garden in the very first piece I wrote was about his claim that he had in fact won the popular vote as well except for the fact that there were these three to five million phantom illegal voters he stated that before I think he stated his concerns of voter fraud and and People voting illegally during the campaign, and he continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence that people have to him. Press Secretary Sean Spicer doubling down on the president's claim, but repeatedly unable to point to evidence that backs up the charge that has been debunked by Republicans and Democrats alike, and in this piece that route from the garden I really tried to ask what are the politics behind it claim like that I mean not only did he threaten dispute the outcome of the election if? He lost his disputing the outcome of an election that he want. But if in four years time, he trotted out a similar type of argument not to for the purposes of challenging his loss in the popular vote. But challenging his lost the Electoral College vote The damage this system should be hard to exaggerate. Okay. Say Things feel quite different this time because in the run up to this election, he basically got asked that same question again didn't he and he responded similarly you commit to making. Sure. That there's a peaceful transfer of power after the election going to have to see what happens. You know that I've been complaining very strongly about the ballots and the ballots are a disaster. We WanNa make sure the election is honest and I'm not sure that it can be i. don't I. Don't know that it can be on top of that. He's a lot to say about the workings of the election itself what is his argument and how much does it change now that he's the incumbent president Well. For one thing, he has spent the last three and a half years telling the American people that our electoral system is unreliable, which again is kind of unprecedented act in American history and what trump has done is he's kind of created this heads I win tails you lose situation in which the only way that the system can demonstrate its legitimacy is if he wins and if he loses well, that's simply becomes proof of what he's been saying all along. We having in yesterday's episode that Donald Trump is really hitting out at the postal system. And in particular state Sir automatically send out mail-in ballots voters. Why politically focusing on this issue There's a particular demographic that we need to pay attention to. These mail in ballots a recent poll indicated I. think that around twenty to twenty, five percent of. Trump's supporters intend to vote by mail in pallets that compares to about fifty five to sixty percent of Biden voters who are going to vote Mallon ballot. So we can see that trump is kinda tactically trying to discredit votes that are gonNA, break against him and very, very unfair to our country. If, they do this, our country will be a laughing stock all over the world because everyone knows it doesn't work how many ballots is sending in California's exit twenty, eight million or some massive number. Other states are sending out millions and millions of ballots I don't WanNa. See a crooked election. This election will be the most rigged election and history

"You recommended placing mult around the trees over the emitters and That area. We have been reluctant to do this because we fertilize with an organic granular fertilizer, which needs to be worked into the soil. How do you recommend feeding the trees without having to remove the mulch and the drip lines? If you are using drip lines that have built in inline emitters, there was no exposed emitter. It's built into the half inch tubing. It makes this task much easier. Basically rake aside the mulch. And with half inch lines, you can easily avoid the lines. Get around the lines. No big deal. And then fertilize, work it into the soil, water it in and then raped the mulch back in place. That's the easy answer to that. And remember, too, as we discussed last week with that live Oh, That mulch if you're using an organic mulch like arborist tree trimmings. Or bark, small barque, especially Various sizes of Barker best. Basically, the thing to do is let that mulch help you out in the feeding process because, as it breaks down, it's also feeding the soil so you will be using less fertilizer as time goes on. And also it's always good idea at the end of the growing season to do a soil test to see what your soil needs. It may need nitrogen. It may need ah, phosphorus potassium, but probably they're big made will be nitrogen. So don't add any fertilizer to your soil unless it absolutely needs it on the way to do that is with a soil test. And the last time I checked There were two universities that do very reasonably priced soil tests, and they are back in business after taking a covert 19 break, the University of Massachusetts Amherst And Colorado State University. If you Google either Colorado State University or U Mass Amherst soil testing, those pages will pop up very reasonably priced around $20 or so. You might want to check it out. All right.
