Trump fires top cybersecurity official Chris Krebs
"So when it comes to election security it turns out. There's no job security. Trump's purges continue his. Latest is the ousting of chris. Cribs krebs was dhs security cyber security official. Who lost his job for contradicting trump's claims of a fraudulent and stolen election. In fact krebs said. It was the most secure election in american history. Join us a line for on this and other headlines is national security expert juliette kayem. She's an analyst at cnn forces secretary of the department of homeland security yourself in faculty chair the homeland security program at harvard. University's kennedy school of government. Hello juliet our you. We're great to talk to you. Great to talk to you both on zoom this time so we shouldn't have problems like we did last time. Good fingers crossed. So i'm heartened by. Chris crabs even though he just got fired by the press because he's he's was speaking truth to power in the classic sense saying that the there's not widespread fraud in this election. He did fire but his republican but at least he stood up to the president. Yes exactly and i think that's the way to view it. I know everyone so nervous. And you know we have a right to be. This is no way to treat a democracy or a peaceful transition of power but nonetheless The president is now just wildly searching for a narrative of how he how he loses which he's already lost and so that's every lawsuit he can bring. She's losing about thirty of them at a time. It is questioning the voting process and questioning the voting results and so Firing chris crabs who ran an office that was not only did heroic work in terms of supporting election and the election from foreign interference But also one. That was pushing back against disinformation That was coming out of the white house so that is a good thing. So chris i know chris is. Chris knew he was going to get fired. There's no one's crying here. This was this was someone who believed that. His role was for the united states and not for president. He did his job. The president is petty. chris's deputy quit Chris's the third in line. Who's running the office with someone who can't be fired easily. 'cause he's career and has been part of cybersecurity for while the president will soon discover how How hard it is to. You know to undermine the truth which was that. They did a successful job. So let me just say. This guy's unbelie not only speaking of truth to power around election day. Listen to this guy in october. It's almost like he knew what his boss. Donald trump is gonna say. Here is a krebs in october Talking about what might happen. Post november third patient. That's a lot of opportunity space for the bad guys. Whoever they are to come in and try to so chaos so doubt in the integrity of the process and remember attempts to de-legitimize. The election aren't going to stop on election day. How perfect is that. I mean described to a tee. Exactly what his boston right. So trump had one. Then you know then then no one would. No one be thinking about chris. Christopherson -ticipant either. That it was closed or the biden would win. And so here's the thing so trump's not sophisticated. I mean he's a bullet in china shop. You everyone wonders. If there's some master chess game going on. There's not. I mean he he he he only cares about himself and he's he's bringing us closer bringing us to on unreasonable ledges or cliffs than than need be but in the end. You know this is. Chris was ten steps ahead of him as well as the department in terms of the side in terms of defending the election and ultimately of course trump
The Hills are Alive
"It was an ambitious project that though it failed would become part of the iconography of a decade in september nineteen ninety one the first term residents moved in to biosphere to a three acre volume built to be an artificial materially closed ecological system biosphere one being the earth itself a texas oil billionaire. Funded it to study. How people might one day be able to manage a self sustaining ecosystem for life on mars. It proved to be a lot harder in practice than it was on paper. The oxygen levels would drop too low. The crew didn't really know how to grow crops for food. Their pollinator soon died out and the ants moved in not just any aunts crazy ants. My name's moxy and this is your brain on facts. They go marching to by two. They're the subject of to cgi movies from nineteen ninety. Eight and a picnic wouldn't be complete without them today. We're talking about ants. This topic comes to you by popular demand to social media comments an email. That's a new record. So thanks to rachel. A prodigious and kate from strange animals podcast. We really should think about ants more often than we do considering how many of them there are. I've often enjoyed dropping the fact that the ant population is equal to the human population by weight. But is it. The claim comes from one thousand nine hundred ninety four book journey to the ants by harvard university professor and a german biologist. They based their estimate on the estimate of a british entomologist who calculated that the number of insects alive on earth at any given moment was one million trillion. If ants make up one percent of the insect world that's ten thousand trillion according to the book individual workers weigh on average between one two five milligrams according to the species when combined all ants in the world taken together way about as much as all human beings. So if you're going to play on a seesaw with a bunch of ants you would need about a million of them on the other end to balance you out assuming you weigh sixty two kilos or about one hundred and thirty seven pounds which i will tell you. I don't with around thirteen thousand ant species worldwide. There comes a lot of variety. They range from smallest less than one millimeter long to over fifty millimeters or two inches. That's the aptly named titanic mira gigante so weights vary too but experts seem to agree the average weight of an ant is less than ten milligrams but even among experts. No one really knows how many aunts there are in the world. A bbc documentary claims. There are not ten trillion ants but one hundred trillion though it still suggests that the total weight of the ants equals the total weight of humans. Even by the author's own math their calculations are wrong. If we estimate that the seven point two billion humans on the planet weigh a combined three hundred and thirty two billion kilos or three hundred sixty six million tons and ten thousand trillion aunts weighing an average of four milligrams. Each we get only forty billion kilos or forty four million tonnes or about nine pounds of human for every pound of ants even if we allow for the smaller human population in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and the smaller humans. It's still back of napkin. Math at best one expert does say that the numbers might have inaccurate at one time. Probably about two hundred and fifty years ago. We must also remember that. Humans are getting fatter all the time. We're not just increasing in population we're increasing in fatness. So i think we've left the ants behind another way to try to wrap your head around. How many aunts there are is to look at the biomass of them. One of my favourite weird history and animated rant youtube channels sam annella compared the biomass of several animals and visualized them as spheres literal animal planet's for example. If all the blue whales in the world could be mushed together like plato. They'd make a spheroid about one hundred and forty meters or four hundred and fifty feet across blue. Whales are huge but there aren't very many of them. In contrast the chicken planet is more than twice that size three hundred and thirty meters or eleven hundred feet across their small. But we've read a lot of them. The math was tricky enough. What with trying to come up with a density for each animal. But sam found order of
Trump's Refusal to Start the Transition Process Is Crippling America's Coronavirus Response
"The coronavirus surge around the country is coinciding with a transfer of power in the White House. President Trump has still refused to concede and administration health officials have not started working with President elect Biden's team. On the coronavirus response, NPR's Christiana Silvia reports a tool go on Day. A surgeon and professor at Harvard University who is part of the Biden Coronavirus Advisory group, told NPR on Friday that the group has been denied access. To starting a formal transition with the Trump administration. U. S Surgeon general Jerome Adams tells NPR that the Trump Task force is sharing public information with everyone. There is no information that we have that we don't share. With a met with the American public in general, and that is not available to the Biden task force. And so I'm I'm here and I'm willing to talk to anybody at any point. But the fact remains that the Trump administration has not begun the formal transition process to abide in administration at a time in which the pandemic is worsening across the nation.

In Ah, moment that we heard from from ABC Savory. Harper is not only a triumph for her personally but but also a symbol of what black women can achieve in the United States. Right. This is a momentous occasion for Kamila Harrison and for this country, and she is the daughter of immigrants. She is an hbcu Brad, a member of a historically black authority, and now she is the vice president elect of the United States. The first woman in the first woman of color. That's a hold that title You know. Over the past few days, I've spoken to black women who aspire to hold elected office and black female political scientists tell me that Paris is inspiring a new generation of leadership and that she has forever changed how women of color I will campaign by bringing her multi hyphenate identity to the trail. You know, she did not shy away from her Indian or her Jamaican heritage. She spoke about those on the campaign trail. She was often picture On HBCU campuses with marching band. This is something that has has changed the way that black women specifically will feel if they can bring their authentic Selves to the trail. Actively right Rigor and ABC News contributor.

Born This Way Is Old Science
"The confirmation hearings for Judge Amy, CONYBEARE IT Senator Maisy. Hirano of Hawaii expressed outrage and shock that the nominee would use the term sexual preference instead of sexual orientation sexual preference announced senator. TORONTO. Is An offensive and outdated term used by anti lgbtq activists to suggest that sexual orientation is a choice. It is not after the Exchange Merriam Webster which apparently like most Americans had not gotten that Nemo with these new linguistic absolutes quickly changed the definition of sexual preference in its online dictionary. To, indicate that this wording is now offensive who knew we'll beyond the orwellianism of the literally changing the dictionary to support a political climb. It seems that Senator Hirano is the one who's actually behind the Times on this whole sexual orientation versus Sexual Preference Issue According to Dr Glenn Stanton, and then outstanding new article at public discourse. Judge Barrett's terminology is actually more in line with the latest thinking of leading gender scholars for example, Professor Sorry Van Anders at candidates Queens University has stated that. Quote sexual orientation as a term is increasingly seen as regressive because it belongs to the bio centralist project translating to English. What she saying is that the word orientation suggests that sexuality is hard wired and according to Professor Anders that's just not the consensus anymore among her peers though the whole born this way claim was once a very useful slogan to advance gay rights it no longer serves the goals of the LGBTQ. Movement years ago for instance, two scholars at Ucla question the concept of. Sexual. Orientation especially for women to instead that women's sexuality and Orientation Fluid Changeable over time and variable across social context other social scientists that Glenn Stanton quotes in his public discourse Article Call For a paradigm shift in how female sexuality is studied and described, and there've been plenty of surveys indicate that most self identified lesbians will have relationships with men. At some point. There's also a more obvious problem with the idea of a fixed orientation that's found in the very initials of the acronym especially the. Be The queue of lgbtq as political commentator Douglas Murray who identifies as gay by the way rights bisexuals continued to be viewed as some kind of betrayal from within the gay community gay men tend to believe that men who claim to be by are in fact, gays in some form of denial yet according to a pew research report from last summer bisexuals account for almost half of all LGBTQ adult in the US in fact, the authors of a new book published by Harvard University Press. Think. That male bisexuals are those who call themselves mostly straight vastly outnumber exclusively gay men. Thus they conclude the old system of gay straight or BI has as stanton puts, it outgrown its usefulness and even bigger challenge in the B. to the born. This way dogma is the T- gay rights and gay marriage were sold to us. The premise that homosexuality is hard wired maybe even genetic like race but anyone claiming transgender as an identity does. So in spite of physical and genetic realities not because. Of them and the CUE which usually stands for questioning well, that continues to evolve in both meaning and practice to include more and more sexual preferences as an identity. Well, one wonders whether Senator Horon would feel compelled to lecture the various social scientists that Glenn Stanton sites. In this article my suspicion is she wouldn't in fact, my suspicion is that Senate Arana was fed this talking point by an aide who's checking twitter and saw it as an opportunity to tar and feather judge Barrett as. A big what's ultimately revealed by her political posturing awoke language policing however is crucially important for all of us to now that phrases such a sexual orientation or sexual preference or whatever. The latest nomenclature are terms made up not to describe reality but to advance the idea that has revolutionized. So much of our culture on politics that sexual attraction and urge define and determine who we are. That's the idea we can never embrace even if we're facing outrage from a senator
Why Are Leaf Blowers So Annoying?
"Hey brain stuff lauren Vogel Bob here the sounds of autumn satisfying crunch the crisp apple or fallen leaves to your feet or the teeth grinding noise of a leaf blower. Powered by electric or gasoline motors that propel air out of a nozzle to send leaves and grass cuttings flying leaf blowers are probably the most Vilnai's devices in the lawn care universe to the noise that they have met in the mid nineteen seventies when leaf blowers became ubiquitous in the United States to California cities adopted early bands of the Equipment Carmel by the sea beverly labeled the leaf. Blowers a noise nuisance and banned their use a move that has been followed by hundreds of other cities across the United States to some degree. But what is it about leaf blowers that people hate is that the decibels the constancy delete blowers pose real dangers to the health of users or others who happen to be within earshot increasingly, the answer appears to be yes to all of the above. Leaf blowers may send leaves and lawn clippings for a ride, but the gusts which reach one, hundred, eighty, two, two, hundred, and eighty miles per hour. That's about two, hundred, ninety, two, four, hundred, fifty kilometers per hour also create a nose clogging swirl of fungus spores, herbicides, and microbes. The resulting dust is so aggravating to people with allergies, asthma bronchitis, and other respiratory maladies that the American Lung Association recommend staying away from leaf blowers altogether. And then there's the air pollution operating a commercial leaf blower for one hour and it's as much smog forming pollution as you would if you drove a recent mid-size car as say twenty sixteen Toyota Camry from Los Angeles Denver, which is about a one, thousand, one, hundred mile or a one, thousand, eight, hundred kilometer trip. That's because most leaf blowers used to cycle engines they're lightweight and inexpensive, but they require a mixture of gasoline and oil to run unlike more complex engines. They don't have separate chambers for fueling lubricants when operated the engine wastes approximately one third of the combined mixture releasing carbon monoxide, nitrous oxide, and hydrocarbons into the air. Three toxins are some of the main culprits in the air pollution from leaf blowers. Carbon monoxide helps for smug nitrous oxide is a prime ingredient in acid rain and has been linked to global warming. Hydrocarbons are cancer causing organic compounds that also contribute to smog formation plus leaf blowers are noisy. How noisy are they when you engage in conversation? That's a noise level of about. Sixty decibels according to the center for hearing and Communication. If you're strolling on a sidewalk in a car goes by that's about seventy decibels a leaf blower, even fifty feet or fifteen meters away can be up to seventy five decibels and right up close that jumps well into the nineties according to the World Health Organization any noise about seventy decibels risks causing physical hearing damage. And then there's the mental toll. Miss. A phony is a relatively newly classified condition in which people are angered by particular sounds like chewing or knuckle cracking although leaf blowers aren't mentioned in the diagnosis parameters it stands to reason this phony may be related to people's dislike the machines because they're extra sensitive to sound. Preliminary data shows that phones brains may have a hypersensitive connection between the auditory system and the LIMBIC system, which is the part of the brain that's responsible for creating emotions. It's so much a part of life for a phones that they can be shocked others don't feel or react the same way to certain noises. But being irritated by leaf blowers doesn't necessarily mean your phone. Erica. Walker a doctoral student at Harvard. University's Chan. School. Of Public Health discovered that is far less irritating to create a sound than it is to hear it in a survey of one thousand, fifty residents more than a dozen Boston neighborhoods, Walker found that the majority of respondents said they couldn't control or get away from noises like leaf blowers and they believed that no one really cared that it annoyed them. What's more other research has shown that leaf blowers, a low frequency noise that penetrates through outer walls into homes and businesses in a way that some other noises passing vehicles, for example do not. However. Leaf blowers have become an integral part of commercial lawn care while a leaf blower may sound like fingernails across chalkboard to you for the businesses that rely on them portion of their livelihood. It's probably music to the ears.

Pandemic Nesters Are Driving a Renovation Retail Boom
"You to join me for a trip down memory lane back to the early days of the pandemic all the way back in late April stay home orders were widespread. Many businesses were closed. Remote workers were in the middle of Zoom boom and a Harvard. University report predicted that spending on home remodeling was going to drop like a stone. Oh. How wrong they were turns out as people spent more time at home. They got sick of their surroundings and they decided to do something about it since homeowners weren't spending money on movies, restaurants or vacations for the most part they began pouring those extra dollars into home improvements think hot tubs, patios decks. June demand for outdoor remodeling professionals was up nearly sixty percent over the previous year. So says, Home Improvement Platform House requests for estimates from kitchen and bath makeovers was up about forty percent. Among the beneficiaries of this domestic spending shift were home improvement giants Home Depot and Lowe's since hardware stores are considered essential businesses. They've never had to close their doors and customers kept walking through them on mass in their respective earnings calls. Last week, both retailers demolished already optimistic expectations. Home. Depot. Second. Quarter revenue jumped nearly twenty five percent over last year lows had even better news with a thirty percent spike in sales. Lows bigger bump is attributed to its customer makeup which includes slightly more do it yourself remodelers. They're the people who see a blank wall either WANNA tear it down or paint a mural on it. Diy. remodelers have been a big driver of the home improvement trend according to the Wall Street Journal analysts say lows has done a better job appealing to these can-do consumers. A recent marketing campaign featured a cast member from the Netflix's hit queer eye. But Home Depot has been more successful in courting contractors and boy. They've been busy lately as remote workers leave their tiny city apartments in search of open spaces they're finding suburban homes with small mortgage rates and big renovation needs the type you need professional help for. The home improvement retailers have taken different approaches to respond to demand to home depot is opening three new distribution centers in its home state of Georgia. Over the next eighteen months, the center will support growing demand for flexible delivery and pickup options for both professional and diy customers. The company said in a statement lows on the other hand is going for a more distributed approach within two years. It plans on opening fifty delivery terminals, seven distribution centers, and for e commerce fulfillment. Centers. Lows is betting that smaller centres play strategically around the country will help get products to its hammer-wielding homeowners faster giving the retailer and edge over its big orange rival, and it looks like both companies new facilities will be put to good use the people buying building and renovating homes tend to be higher income analysts say and with no Covid nineteen vaccine or cure likely through at least the end of this year analysts believe people will continue to spend more and more money.

Speed up testing right. Yeah. So you know that the heart is my primary. Is My favorite Oregon heart disease and You know we started our group many years ago. The primary goal was to understand how the heart builds itself and we start from cell the tissues, and so we started this hardship none this test drugs, but we just wanted to like understand how hart bill itself because it turns out like from about two days after your the number of cardiac muscle cells you've got in your heart is pretty much what you have for the rest of your life until they are treated by disease or heart attacks, things like that. So since these cells aren't dividing anymore. And different component parts could track down time we're out, you talk about building an airplane Watson flight.

Make Matrix Proteins metabolize Kasimov thanks while beating. So a typical coordinate muscles set the sizes, five percent of its proteins every day that means every twenty days, it it rebuild itself. So that's a big function, and so we had to build a system where we could study this in-vitro. While we measured tissue function. So that's when we started the organs on chips work which we've. You know we were the first group to come up with Oreo the Harlot, and we've been developing this technology for years. Now, we've moved to three dimensions where we're making small.

So we use their stem cells to make models and what were a go forward with there's GonNa be an announcement very soon is we're we're we're going to model a clinical trial by taking these poor kids, six cells, building a mall or heart the dish than testing drugs on before we actually give the judge of the kids. So this will be a big step forward for the safety of sick kids is been able to do clinical trials, human data without without getting patient now And bill who is really doing a good work over there.

That's again that is a lot of texture related research going on. And I should point out the art technology. We first start making the scaffolds all the stuff we were. Doing for. Wound dressings we were using stuff like soy or Alfalfa shock on who the post graduate student my group started using it because they have fido estrogen there good for for for skin. You can also use those scaffolds for food so we are making completely. Plant based protein meat products to, or we can use PEA proteins in saw Alfalfa another thing.

So the idea they can impossible framing young completely marion protein, but the same taste and texture of of animal filet Mignon I don't know if that's going to be attainable but we certainly have the technology do that more recent research group has started.

We've we've were just about the publisher result where we think we've cracked the code on how to grow fat in make fat fatter in a dish and using these nanna fiber three dimensional scaffold.

What we'll remember from the 2020 Biden convention
"For more on Biden's speech. In this week's historic virtual Democratic convention we're joined by two guests in Massachusetts Dr. Cornel. West with a professor of the practice of public. Philosophy at Harvard. University author of numerous books including race matters and black prophetic fire. His new podcast called the tight rope in two thousand Seventeen Cornell Westwood's in Charlottesville with. Neo Nazis stormed the campus he and other clergy members were protected by anti-fascists from the mob white supremacists and in Baltimore Maryland were joined by Ben Jealous Precedent people for the American way former president of the ACP. He ran for governor of Maryland in two thousand eighteen we welcome you both to democracy. Now, Ben Jealous congratulations on your new position as head of people for the American way. Why don't you start off by responding to this week's Democratic convention your thoughts on. Where the two now nominees the. President not presidential nominee, Joe Biden and historic a selection of Kamla Harris, to be his running away their positions and how. They represent what you do or not. Theme this convention was really one of unity. This was a time. When we have to come together to defeat a president, who is the most evil the most corrupt than any of us have seen and That says a lot. It also was the time we saw two two nominees who we as progressives. No, we can work with. Kamla. Sister who introduced her Maya. The former head of the ACLU of northern. California. Kamo ran for D. A. and much more conservative time and yet did so as outspoken opponent of the death penalty who then held her ground early in term when she was tested, would an officer was killed an the entire liberal establishment northern California came down on her and she said the death penalty is wrong period. Tremendous Kirch and Joe Biden who Bernie himself said is poised to be the most progressive presidents since FDR. And so while it's not Bernie. And while maybe it's not somebody else someone hope for what we do know is that these are people that we can work with. These are people who their best represent our best values literally the daughter of civil rights activists, the sister of a civil rights lawyer who are self told me fifteen years ago she became a prosecutor because it wasn't enough to just fight the power. We also had to hold the POW. And I've seen her act courageously. So I'm I'm very hopeful and I have no doubt that we can work with. Joe. Like addy who spoke so beautifully, and that was the true highlight for me.

That's the most important thing to get out of any presidential election is a president that you can move in the right direction. and Professor Cornel West your reaction to this week in the positions of the Democratic candidates for president if I president.

Of his speech the Alabama who was a revolutionary L. A.

And in order to do it, you gotTa Talk About Poverty. If you go move on from Wall Street greed and Wall Street crimes, you gotTa talk about, Wall Street Green Wall, street cry go move on up from the Pentagon militarism around the world you gotTa talk about it. Those are the taboo issues that we don't get serious wrestling with. So when you really. Talk about the soul of America, the battle for the soul of America much of that so has been evacuated by the Pentagon, cry greed and the Wall Street greed and the inability of the police and other institutions at treat black people and Brown people, Indigenous People as human beings so I agree with brother.

We're going to tell the truth about their. Captivity and their. Refusal to hit Pentagon money spending and militarism around the world at Wall Street, green and. Speak substantively to issues of poverty you can have massive protests all around the country, the largest in the history of country, you can have brother Barbara. Assisted theorist talking about poverty, and then when you get to the convention, you get this spectacle that has nothing to do with wrestling with poverty.

Colleges plan for virus testing, but strategies vary widely
"Dozens of U. S. Colleges are announcing plans to test students for the Corona virus this fall. But their strategies vary widely. Colby College in Maine plans to test all students every other day for two weeks. And then twice a week. Harvard University will test students on campus three times a week. But some plan to test students on ly if they show symptoms or come into contact with a positive case. Federal health officials discourage widespread testing and college campuses. But researchers at Cornell and Yale University's say that without widespread testing covert 19 could be spread by infected students who don't show symptoms.
Need some good news about Covid-19?
"Been been mostly mostly bad bad when when it it comes comes to to information information about about the the Corona Corona virus. virus. Harvard professor Joseph Allen at Harvard University's Th Chan's School of Public Health. Talk to Carol. These David Rankin and says there is some good news that therapeutic will be vaccine. So people may have heard of the steroid DEC. Method Stone on the antiviral disappear. These are being used to treat patients who are quite sick with Kobe 19. But there are other therapeutics that should be coming on the market, including what we call monoclonal antibodies. Normally when your body has a response to this virus of others that creates antibodies. Well, lot of clonal antibodies are just engineered and a body and they could be used for both prevention and treatment that the data they're looking really promising. On the testing front. We've seen advancement in terms of rapid saliva tests. You could think of these as a home pregnancy test. But for covert 19 and in this case is a strip of paper you put in your mouth and it gives you a test result pretty quickly, and it's cheap. And so while the test isn't perfect, the fact that it's cheap and you can take it back and at home. Even better than a better a good, accurate test, but takes seven days to get the results back. We keep seeing that these rapid tests are not as accurate does that increase the danger a little bit of if you think you are negative, and it comes up positive, it's a false positive or a false negative, really good question and the work that shows that if you get these rapid test that air cheap enough, not the expensive, rapid test. But that even if they have false negatives, the fact that you're taking them every day or even multiple times a day is better than an accurate test that you take. And then seven days later, you find out the result at which point it's too late. That you here is that even on day one. If it doesn't get it, then you catch it. The next time you took the test and worst case, you catch it on the third day, And if everybody starts doing this overall, it would really help too slow. The spread of disease, and we get a lot of people confidence about going back into stores or restaurants or even theaters. When is there going to be a vaccine? Because the vaccine seems to be the turning point whether or not we can get back to normal request. It wasn't that long ago where we weren't quite sure we could produce the vaccine for this Corona virus. On If we produce it within a year, which it looks like we'll be able to do that will be the fastest. A vaccine has never been produced by several years. But this is a remarkable scientific achievement. It looks like we will have a vaccine by the end of this year. But I want to be a caveat that that the real challenge is not just getting the vaccine. It's the distribution. Right vaccine never saved any lives on Ly a vaccination has we actually have to get the people? That's not to say it's really good news. I also think that news on therapeutic is just as important. Therapeutics will beat out vaccine this fall is what I'm seeing in terms of the science, and I think that's really important because people aren't scared of getting sick. There's getting scared of death. On. If you have therapeutic that can keep people that can prevent the worst outcomes. I think that will also helped give them confidence to people that will get through this okay. Professor Joseph Allen at Harvard's Th Chan School of Public Health. The U.
Are you communicating enough with your employees?
"For this week's episode I WanNa talk about communication. Over the last few decades there've been countless studies on measuring and predicting workplace performance and one of the traits often found at the top of those studies as conscientiousness. Consciousness is simply a commitment to doing your work. Well, whatever that work is, it's measured differently depending on your job. Of course, a janitor, a doctor, a freelance journalist, and a leader of people would all have to exhibit different things in order to be considered conscientious, but the level of conscientiousness each of them showed would still be a pretty reliable predictor of job success, and even a recent study at Harvard. University showed conscientious people tend be healthier and live longer, too. But this is the leadership podcast. So if the definition of conscientiousness is simply a commitment to doing your job well, we need to look at the job of a leader in order to determine whether they're conscientious and one of the most important parts of a leader's job is communicating with their employees. Many years ago, I had one of those light bulb moments I arrived at my job as I was walking in I, said hi to my boss, he didn't look up acknowledged, I'd said anything or even my existence and he just kept doing what he was doing. I kept walking for the next several minutes. There was a part of me thought I was about to be fired. Why I think this? I hadn't done anything wrong. I had no reason to think it. But a response for my boss that was vastly different than he had reacted dozens of times in the past led me to that conclusion in reality. He just didn't hear me. Say Hi, that's it. That's all it was, but my imagination briefly ran with it, and it took an emotional toll until I rebel to connect later that day. It was all think about. The light bulb moment for me. Came when I realized how important it is for us as human beings to make sense of things, and consequently how we tend to fill in holes with worst case scenarios, instead of thinking optimistically or even objectively. And that experience made me WanNa. Make sure I never allow an employee reporting to me to feel similarly if I could help it. There are many reasons communication is important, but this one is paramount. If you consider yourself an advocate of your employees, and you're committed to giving them a great environment, a prerequisite of that is over communicating until your employees asks you personally to dial it back a notch. And if you this was important in two thousand nineteen, it's crucial and twenty twenty when employment, status, operating, model and future plans can change literally by the day. Some employees announced will so they don't need or want constant communication? What they mean is they don't want to be micromanaged and they'll have to feign interest in what you're saying. If they've heard it before, but if your reasons for over communicating to make sure your employees feel confident, their leaders have their back. You can't go wrong. So if your leader people, what does it mean to have great communication with your employees? Well I means being transparent as possible. The less information you hold back the less holes. There are for the employees to fill in themselves. Don't be afraid to say you don't know. There's a lot of uncertainty at the moment, and your employees will likely show you some grace when you aren't able to answer. Some of their questions we should never do is hold off having the conversation to begin with. Simply because you're were, you won't have all the answers. Many times a short conversation even when it doesn't share profound developments in strategy is enough to keep employees engaged in productive. Lastly set up a minimum communications schedule and stick to it. Many employers won't ask for the information, but they'll still judge you harshly for not communicating it. The best way to combat this is to put meetings at an interval on your schedule. Even if there is nothing new to share, and you're meeting fifteen minutes, it resets the clock on what the employment be feeling and helps them maintain trust in you and your

"Really truly missing out thoughts that were echoed by event organizers upchurch one thing I would encourage anybody who's in the. Theater who's curious about this intersection of hip hop in education the one thing I want them to know is that it's already in the room. just hip hop being in his early forties and having young people who've been on the planet less than that. It's in their lives it's in. The way they see the world it's in the music. It's in the dress type away. So it's in the room and it's not in the room as a as a less than as may be it's in the room as a part of people's being so. Stop and pause and ask themselves how how might it be in the room and how might that be an asset for the learning to really move forward? What am I soon, as listening to how do they move their bodies? How're certain artists helping them get connected to the world's each other? How can I make space for that to be a greater part of the room since it's already here, upchurch went on to summarize the day's events with an optimistic look at the future of hip hop based education. Conference was amazing. This is the third year. The turn out was great. The energy was beautiful all day long we have presenters from all over the country and the local area. Contributing what they think about hip hop as a necessary element of the. Movement is the name of conference. Can't, Stop Hip Hop Education Movement. because. Hip Hop can't be stopped and the move to like transform education is real and is urging hip hop has to be a part of that. So we had. M.. C. Visual artists, dancers, educators. We have people creating beautiful artwork and fifteen minutes in a response to a prompt about how you can keep the movement going. Is, beautiful. I'm on a high right now. That high extended well into the evening as the event wrapped up presenters, participants and attendees trickled out of Asquith Hall, leaving behind the echoes of music dance laughter conversation.

Once again, thanks to Asia upchurch everyone involved with the can't stop hip Hop the Education Movement Conference Twenty Nineteen I was asked to return I was looking forward to coming back to participate in the twenty twenty edition, which, of course, as mentioned previously was waylaid due to the pandemic.

This means that. Student, Anti Comic. Traditional classroom. Traditional. While lady soul let a workshop in Jamaican dancehall and American hip hop dances African roots spoke about movement from a holistic almost spiritual perspective we have one body to live. And how we move through life says a lot about us and how we treat our bodies and how we interact with others. Just physically, is very important on so many levels whether it's in a battle whether it's on just being respectful and cordial to one another. And that's why me movement is utterly important. It's not just dance. It's how we live in our bodies. It's this connection to not only the mind and body, but the soul that was perhaps one of the larger takeaways from this conference. Though it receives pushback and right it's at least somewhat logical to see the benefits of hip hop to approve certain educational processes. What's even more surprising to some outside of the culture is how much opportunity there is US hip hop elements and associated art forms as Catharsis as a tool for healing. Presenter Dawn Marie Luna spoke about how technology can assist demonstrating the concept behind the break an APP designed to decrease mental health stigma and reduce daily stress. For Sherry.

So I want everyone to feel like they have. Free Reign of their emotions yes. Lastly how fun Funding. While a huge focus was on youth participation. This was a major conference aimed at showing hip hop is a valuable tool in any educators toolkit and the next generation of teachers in attendance were definitely feeling inspired.

I mean there's a lot of an invasion by creativity. A lot of genius as to be. Out There For nichelle Jackson and Tiffany Garcia students at Wellesley College. The fact it a full-fledged academe conference centered on hip hop was reverberating through the iconic holes of Harvard was indeed no worthy and spoke about what other educators should understand about the intersection of hip hop and education. I'M GONNA show, Jackson I'm a senior at Wellesley College. I'm here taking intro to hip hop studies course. One of our assignments was to go out to a hip hop event very like vague and open into right nothing. You learn about the space and do some interpretations about the Space Yeah. What do you think of when you think of hip hop and education in the same space Like conflict like when I came to the hip hop conference at Harvard. At Harvard was the conflict. Like. This kind of Buji Space and I think a lot of organizers here kind of like hinted towards it because when they mentioned harbor, they did it in English British like Joie, the accent.

"Much of a space here at Harvard that was really by being talked about hip hop talking about young people and how leg that is such a rich kind of place for students to be Kinda start their journey in academia surprisingly. Because it them where they're at and it connects them to arts and things that they're already really interested in, and so we we had a student group, and so we had like a few jam sessions. We like music sharing sessions. We had educators that were in the college and talk about what they were doing with their students, and we're just kind of like sharing ideas, and then we decided to put on a conference to. kind of make it a little bit more. Give it more info that was two years ago. It's amazing the growth from two years ago it was really contained two years ago to primarily Harvard Professors Harvard students, and just like you know in these three roads that are around the Harvard graduate. School of Education. And? Came from the college, maybe the performances. But now it's like we're opening the doors of Harvard to the Boston area to the country and so many people. Come in and out. So welcome and invited, and so received so much love and so much love. So I feel like it's kind of like breaking down walls like the invisible walls of privilege hierarchy at even the physical walls of a brick and mortar that give the prestigious place and so it's just been an amazing evolution. I attended the conference as a journalist wanted to share some of the ideas and ingenuity on display with the listeners of hip hop can save. America because they embody the concept of the show that there are incredible opportunities to tackle some of our most difficult social disparities and injustices harnessing the power of the same youth led movement that has become so much a part of the lives of populations across the world if up not for those looking for specifics agawam starting with Austin Martin from rhymes with reason, an organization seeking to quote change the way words and literacy or accessed in a new growingly. Diverse America. Here. Martin explained what led them to start incorporating hip hop lyrics into traditional English learning. Out of the top one, hundred words on the sat within hip hop music that we list to all the time I feel like obscure artists, drink Kenji. J. Bloomberg. Who like those people have as a team level vocabulary in their music readily available so that's what I was like. Okay. I'm one of the year. Now English makes sense and there are many programs that utilize rap hip-hop to help translate literary concepts using the lyrics and music young students love. But can wrap help teach math. California based math teacher Lebron James broke down video culturally. Haven't been hip hop math video. It's a when I was at harbour. We did this video with the animations. Using music to engage students who we're looking to do stimulate learning is a whole series of remand lessons a lot. About hip hop. and. Then have kids around the country. Right math wrapped them on us, and then we want to turn them into rap star because here's idea. There's a shortage of messages Henry and it gets harder gate. So if you get a few good teachers and a lot of rappers and they put together math rap videos now they can be on. Internet and they can sell math wraps for twenty five cents. So, all these rappers going around trying to go platinum triple platinum but that market is saturated. There's no one to a mattress and you have four million kids take an Algebra every year who would love to pay twenty five cents a lesson or twenty five cents a month or a dollar a month for math. So that is what we're looking to put together to make map point engaged for kid and his four million jobs in stem. Would you can't do the same without the? If. You don't have the math skills. You GonNa play robotics, Legos of clay all you want. Job. Teachers in attendance were clearly excited about the potential. Debris gas used in hip hop into your content. So I bridge I math wrath is how I bring. To the met. The better your rat. If you've really got rapid skills, let me see. You wrap this this this this quadrajet equation you can wrap that. I. Give You. It's like, okay you meet me halfway through. Halfway hip hop allows you to do that then learning increase also. James talked to me as well about shrugging off the kinds of resistance that hip hop based educators often after confront when trying to implement these intersections in institutions that are often stubbornly resistant to change. First of all people resistant hip hop starting seventy nine rapper's delight they were resistant. It didn't in La where I'm from, you know when? They were resistant to that when the two live crew Kim but they were resistant to that when. There's always been resistance, but you can't resist a hip hop man hip hop world. Come through, and so you start with a few teachers, bring a hip hop to the classroom. When they see the kids start to come to that classroom in the kids galvanized around that teacher it puts pressure on the other teachers to have to do. So you just gotTa let the hip hop grow but once you plant the seed man, you not hip hop on growth so we tried to. Do that in a math class. Now, while hip hop is often used as a direct educational tool in these kinds of ways, I think what gets lost sometimes as just how much to music and the culture can be used teach improve litany of life skills not just reading writing and arithmetic. I'm talking about self confidence communication and collaboration as explained by Mike Johnson from Utah based mentorship nonprofit spy hopped. Logic model this clearly lays out a theory practice and all of our classes five up so I can increase passenger effective communication in the media arts, increased college career, and future readiness. Skills Building meaningful interpersonal cross cultural connections, increased self-confidence being engaged media where citizens. Some of the most important parts about what we do mentors. You definitely teaching communication life skills as a part of that process communication and collaboration and one of the big aspects of the class like I need to have incorporated as a part of it. So we do of music videos a part of it. When they complete their album where they collaborate with our film apprenticeship, they have to get their album artwork designed by our design apprentices. So being able to have a real world experiences of communicating in. With all these different parts of creating a whole project usually it takes a team effort for most albums getting done. It's not usually one person to everything like Ajay Kohler arrest whatever is there's usually more people that are helping out making happen.

Okay. So hold up think about this your second how much sugar do you think is in a soda? Okay. Don't guess I'll tell you about thirty grams of sugar for twelve ounce beverage like a can of coke. So if the average person is drinking two cans, which is twenty four ounces that is like sixty to seventy grams of sugar in a beverage or a serving whatever or your regular soda. Okay. So the average person whether having a large juice that's like twenty four to twenty five ounces of when people are juicing. They get the large size guess on. What sugar isn't that about the same? In some cases, more. But you're thinking. Yeah. But but it's healthy. It's natural. It's from fruit. Your body doesn't know that your body just knows sugar and by consuming more sugar than what we need a deregulates are insulin response. In other words. It disrupts our body's ability to know what to do with insulin. And then what happens way gain see when your body produces and doesn't know how to regulate insulin. We know that eight creates a magnitude. I mean, a laundry list of problems. Okay. That becomes toxic think about if you've got too much of anything in your body. It can become toxic you guys including water. I mean you die from water poisoning. If you consume too much water, the average person won't, but the average person is consuming shuker in our beverages, and in our food in a level at which has become toxic. Now when we do that our bodies like Sosa. Mart. That says, hey, let's fight this off and one of the ways that everybody tries to fight. These things off is with inflammation, and that inflammation crates plaque. It creates leaky gut it creates disruption of our hormones it creates weight gain. I mean, we've known these things about sugary beverages for quite some time. We've known this about taking in too much sugar. But I think what people have failed to take into consideration is that sugar sugar. Your body doesn't know whether it's from Honey or whether it's from table sugar or fructose or high fructose corn syrup or glucose sugar show her and in this study, they reported that for every additional sugary drink. That's one single drink a person consumes their risk of dying from heart disease increased by ten percent from one drink per day. So I'm gonna ask you a question. I wanna see if you get this, right? How many sugary drinks should the average person have per day? Okay. Well, I'm going to give you the answer zero. That's how many should be having. You should be having zero drinks sugary, sweet drinks per day and less, of course, it's sweetened naturally with stevia. And I wanna say this. I use Steve. Yeah. You sweet leaf stevia. But I try to limit the amount. You know, why? Because we don't know a lot yet about the long term effects of using stevia as a sugar replacement. Yes, it's all natural. Right. But the body receives it as being sweet, right? So it's telling our brain. Oh, this is sweet. And when our brain receives something sweet it once more sweet have you noticed that personally? I'm working progress..

"Interstellar light sales and advanced transportation system that was pushing payloads up to a million tons of each voting from his paper a large enough to carry living passengers across interstellar or even enter. Galactic distances. This is close quote. They had of Harvard University's astronomy department. And in one of our interviews. He said to me Linda, quote, if our civilization on earth is now contemplating doing star shot which is kind of projecting with lasers. And they might try this in about another year or two that they would start off with something small and light. And maybe get it up to twenty or thirty percent of the speed of light because it would be small it'd be like pushing an iphone with laser, but we'd have a shield on it. And if they start doing that now he said there might be another advanced technological civilization that already has mastered. This technology went far ahead. And so that now that we're what we're seeing with these birds. Of half a billion Suns of energy and not just in one part of this universe. But all over the place that they are actually evidence of launching advanced large cargoes now that is fascinating. Because he's not the only astronomer and astrophysicist who is linking this concept that if you reach a point where you could start launching small things and work your way up into heavier cargo that where we are now sorted beginning to tip toe into Cam we use laser light to project something.

"I just texted my buddy, Doug Steinhardt, be chairman of the excuse me. The nj Republican party after don's newscasts earlier and asked him if he can come on the show tomorrow. So I'll get Doug to talk about the latest with the governor Phil Murphy's scandal. And we're not going to let this go. We're not gonna let this go not at all. Harvard University, by the way, Harvard has got some major problems this civil rights lawsuit that bay discriminated against Asian Americans. It's a big deal. There's something else though, with former native American Elizabeth Warren after her DNA tests were released and they show. She's one one thousand twenty fourth. This is. One thousand twenty fourth. Yes, she's one sixty fourth indigenous at best at best. So anyway. After she was hired. Harvard university. Oberdorf school in particular. They went out there. And they trumpeted the fact that they hired a woman of of diversity they used Elizabeth Warren as their model of of diversity. The Boston Globe reports that warrants claimed the native American heritage never came up in factory deliberations. But of course, it didn't have to that point her purported ethnicity was a matter of record. Yeah. Once at Harvard Warren quickly developed a reputation as an engaging and committed teacher and Warren characterize yourself. It was against this backdrop of race and gender activism that Elizabeth Warren arrived in Cambridge Massachusetts. Then a law professor at the university of Pennsylvania. She came to Harvard as a visiting professor during this time worn characterize yourself as native American and was deemed a minority and a professional directory used by law schools for recruiting purposes. Warren says she classified herself this way to meet other native Americans that may be true may also have had the effect of catching the attention of hiring committees at prestigious law schools. So. You think about that for a second? And you think about the the notion of trying to get a job at a top college an Ivy league college Harvard Law School, the preeminent law school one of them. Anyway, certainly some would say the most preeminent others would disagree. Probably those who graduated from Yale Law School, for example. But this is a pretty good job again. So she lets them know, she's native American. See that lie because she's not but that lie, and then she goes why just wanted to meet other native Americans. It was like a group chat with what does that? What is that native Americans? Only talked to other native Americans is that what you're going to say. So this is an interesting piece from the weekly standard in the nineteen nineties. Harvard Law School was a hotbed of left wing agitation. The writer of this piece says I was there in remember. Well, the explosive protests and sit ins that erupted over a lack of diversity on the faculty in April nineteen Ninety-two. Scores of protesters demonstrated outside dean, Robert Clark's office. Some of them wearing masks of his face nine students refused to leave the dean's office for over twenty five hours their demand that the administration hiring faculty member who was quote a woman of color. As the protests broke up dean Clark filed disciplinary charges against the disruptive students, but the administrative hearings to determine the fate of the Griswold nine as they came to call themselves turn into a circus. Jesse Jackson issued a plea for leniency and hundreds of spectators filled. The hearing room to watch students. Turn the tables on dean, Clark and affected. We put Harvard on trial for discrimination. And that's when Elizabeth Warren showed up claiming to be a native American. You see how that works? She claimed to be a native American and then at that point Harvard hired her why not she was a minority, and then they listed that in their book. They listed that in their book to say, we got minority teachers look at this turns out, they listed one of the whitest teachers in Harvard Law School history when they put Elizabeth Warren that law book and said, this is our diversity. It was our picture was so white in fact, they had actually tone it down like they had a dark in it using Photoshop. The early nineties addition of Photoshop terrible, by the way, remember some of those programs back then. Oh, they were awful Photoshop, and what was the one you can make your own web pages front page. I think it was anyway. So, but you'd have to you'd have to use all these little tricks to highlight can make you're not seem as white as she really was. Yeah. One thing is certain when Warren joined the faculty Harvard touted her minority status in order to burnish its diversity credentials listening Warren as a minority and internal documents and compliance reports and telling the Harvard crimson that the law school had a native American female on the faculty. Yep. The story of Elizabeth Warren sent to Harvard raises legitimate questions about whether it was ethical for her to hold yourself out as a minority to employers for her own benefit, or there's it also raises important policy questions about racial preferences. And affirmative action in the twenty first century at about Senator Warren's view on those issues, just Warren favor, the use of racial preferences in university, hiring college admissions, the she believed that racing of necessity should be considered a plus factor or thumb on the scale. And as she does believe race should be a factor in which applicants count is racial or ethnic minorities as anyone with a smidgen of minority heritage count, or do you only those people with a, parent or grandparent from the protected class count at what percentage do we institute cutoffs? These are all great questions. Right. Writer of this piece from the weekly standard is a very very smart guys name or she Jennifer breath. Sarah's Jennifer Brasilia's writing this very very well done piece. She's a senior fellow with the independent women's forum. She writes the questions, you're not theoretical. They impact university. Hiring an admission decisions every day. In fact, the same day was with Warren claimed victory in the dispute over heritage Harvard University was in federal court in Boston defending its race conscious admissions policy against claims that discriminates against Asian Americans. And that is why Senator warrants heritage is not simply a personal matter. It's a matter of public concern. When measuring diversity, she writes should schools count, Asian Americans native Americans Latinos or should they concern themselves only with blacks. Should be officially registered with a tribe to count as a native American who counts as a Latino Mexican central Americans. What about South Americans or Cubans? I mean, people not cigars or Puerto Ricans do the grandchildren of Hispanic immigrants count. We're only the first generation. And why are we doing all this anyway? All of these racial preferences. But you you look at that. And you think the former native American back, then she had a she had a lot to offer Harvard by being a lying about being a native American right and Harvard in the early nineties Harvard Law School, they were more than happy to say. All right. Let's do it. We'll put her out there. They didn't ask for any proof. And that's something to evade asked him for proof. She wouldn't be able to prove it. I don't know if they had DNA testing back, then I don't think they did at least not accessible to the public. I'm sure the law enforcement, maybe had it. But there was no I don't think there was a twenty three and me back, then I don't think ancestry dot com was around yet. So I don't know if the average person could have gotten a DNA test without a court order being done by the government. But anyway, did Harvard ask her to prove anything if the answer's no why not somebody who just show up and go. Well, listen, I'm. There's a movie called Solman years ago. Remember that movie? Yeah. Who was in that movie? I forget the kid who is in the outsiders. What was his name? Right now. I am db salty Thomas Sowell Thomas how right? The store. Nineteen Eighty-six the premise of the movie soul, man, Donald see this. I don't think so. Yes. Song? That's it. Raid on Chong was the woman in that. Schwarzenegger movies issues in James van Jones. What's apps using commando with darned sports nigger? Yes. Leslie Nielsen James Earl Jones. Big cast, a movie was not all that. Great. I don't think it holds the test time. But anyway, it's all about this guy wants to get into Harvard Law School. So he paints himself with black paint to make himself black look black. So he would get accepted into Harvard Law School. This is the story line from from the movie soul, man. Nineteen eighty-six. Mark doesn't expect any problems going to college. He and his friends have reserved places in Harvard, and his parents have the money to pay for his education there, but suddenly his father's neurotic. Psychiatrist advises him to go on vacation, why instead of spending more money on his son since Mark wants to keep his lifestyle, including a fancy car in a flat shared with his friend. He seeks financial support. The only nation was still accepts applications for blacks only. No problem with lots of bronze, pills and soul in his voice. He sets out to Harvard soon. He has to realize that being black will cause some people to handle him differently. That was the story back then in one thousand nine hundred six so man. So of course, radon chunk falls in love. They fall in love. And she finds an Israeli why she's she's offended because who wouldn't be. And then the whole thing's a mess. But, but that's what it was with Warren did basically now she presented to be something that she was not. I don't know if she took any pills darkened darker skin or anything like that. But what the hell I've, maybe maybe this guy didn't even have to do all that in the movie. Maybe she just said he was black. Maybe they would have said, okay, fine. That's cool. Elizabeth Warren, she she wanted a job at Harvard, so bad. She she lied and said she was native American and Harvard wanted a minority female on their staff so badly. They didn't ask for any verification. They didn't go. Well, can you show your tribal history?.
