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.

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. I believe that we must move towards Medicare for all I also believe that Joe Biden will take us further in that direction certainly. Donald. Trump and frankly further than most presidents that that that we have an opportunity here to move things in the right direction again and as organizers. 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. Day My points of reference really are the freedom dreams that we just heard from zoom commodores and genius Lionel Richie. Of Ella, Baker, who was invoked by brother Biden and the first sentence. Of his speech the Alabama who was a revolutionary L. A. Baker who was working on the mass party organizing committee would offer annoy the Great William Kuntsler for actually working for third parties because he thought, she thought that the two party system was so decrepit and then also to Curtis Mayfield that they've been playing over and over again, the move on up but you got to move on from poverty. 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. Ben. In terms of being part of an anti fascist coalition. That I think we're forced to vote for buying, but we're not going to lie about buying. WE'RE NOT GONNA lie about Harris. 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. I think court breath corey was the only one that even talk about it for the most part none of the major figures did thank God that Bernie thank God LLC.

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.

"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?

Hacking Your Leadership

03:19 min | 2 months ago

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

Authorship Attribution of Lennon McCartney Songs

"Mark Glickman and I'm at Harvard University as a senior lecturer in statistics, statistics is a topic that the audience really loves hearing about before we get into the main topic. Can you give us a little bit of background on the areas of stats that you studied or maybe those that interest you the most? Yeah, well. What got me into statistics in the first place? Actually was my interest in the Game Chess I've always been interested in how chess players get rated when they play in tournaments in other. Other words when you go to a tournament, you get a numerical rating. Where if you have two players have ratings, you could actually determine the profitability that player defeats at other, and that was something that I was always interested in these chess rating systems, and I ended up getting really into statistics and the mathematical aspects of these kinds of systems and I developed a couple systems that are in use these days, especially in online gaming called the Licko system. So that's really got me into statistics in. In, the first place and I really have a passion for teaching, so that's a big part of my statistics life, and then much more recently got into the intersection between statistics and music, and this Beatles authorship attribution project is one of the bits of work also got involved with a student who is really the primary driver of this work on basically how to use statistically generates music that sounds like Corrales, and so we have a paper. That's GonNa, be coming very shortly in that area so. So, yes, a music's become a much bigger focus in my statistics like these days. Is there anything obviously interest could drive it but I'm curious if there's any computational component to it may be the availability of computers to run big simulations, and that sort of thing has that influenced the ability to ask interesting questions along these lines? Yeah, generally it helps I. mean I tend not to gravitate to problems which can only be solved by having the appropriate hardware to be able to crank through the data? Having access to good computing definitely makes a big difference I think we can take for granted that any listener must be aware of the Beatles and their influence on music. Regardless of what they like should they could a few, but tell us a little bit more background for those that don't know the discography. What were the types of problems you were looking to? To approach this whole project essentially started when I met my main collaborator for this project Jason Brown. When the two of US happened to be at this conference in Prince, Edward Island! We just happened to be talking. After I gave a talk some material. Actually that's related to rating systems for chess players, and we just happened to stumble on our mutual interest. Interest in music, and in the Beatles, and he was telling me that he had gained a little bit of infamy about fifteen years ago, where he used essentially a forty-eight analysis, decomposing the sounds from the starting court of a hard day's night to figure out the actual instrumentation of the cord, because that really been something that was in pretty serious dispute so. So he published a little article audit and got him some attention, and he was telling me since then one of the things that he was particularly interested in was being able to represent Sohn's particularly Beatles songs in particular format in his area of math, which is graph theories, essentially representing music in the form of essentially graphs or networks and he wanted to. Be Able to use it to be able to distinguish authorship of different Beatles songs like maybe there'd be stylistic differences that would be evident in these representations, anyone really making a lot of headway and whole problem of being able to sing wish authorship is something that's much more firmly in the wheelhouse of a statistician, so I told him it sounds like he probably something I would want to be heavily involved in and so we ended up starting this collaboration, and that was kind of started it all, so we tried lots of different sorts of things. Things to take the music and be able to figure out. How can you predict authorship from musical features, and that's essentially what led us down the path to the work that eventually got published so from my perspective, wearing my data scientist hat, I would say you have a fixed data set that is partially labeled. Does that feel like the right framing for you? The main question of interest really and just to take a step back is that there are a handful of songs by the Beatles and again there's nothing about this problem that has to. To be specific to be spent for our interests there handful songs by the Beatles that or of disputed authorship, and so the idea is that you start off with a data set where the labels which is to say the authorship of Lennon McCartney songs is known that's known because the Beatles Bayside interviews in various information that's been gathered over the years is of note authorship, so we have a data set where the labels are no, and then in addition to that we have for all of those songs. We have a whole bunch of features A. A whole bunch of information about various musical aspects of the songs and idea is to form a statistical model that uses those features to predict the labels, and then once you establish that relationship then you apply to the songs of disputed authorship to see the predictions going to be based on that relationship, so for non composers who might be listening? Perhaps they could be intimidated by this problem. Saying music is all about creativity and unpredictability in these sorts of things. Is this truly assault problem from that point of view well? Yes, solvable a loaded word. I mean we certainly made our best attempt by Best Ibiza? After making lots of attempts that were not terribly predictive, we finally stumbled on said features and a statistical approach that seems to do a pretty reasonable job. Making predictions, the simple answer I suppose is yes, it's possible at solvable in the sense that there is information that you can extract. That is predictive of other ships. I could be pretty. Pretty concrete about this one thing that we knew before going into this work, and this is something that has been well known by musicologists studying. Beatles, music, which is that Paul? McCartney songs in particular tend to have melodies that tend to move around a lot like Paul McCartney, had a musical vocal range, fairly wide and part of that tended to be reflected in his moving melody by contrast John Lennon. had a reasonable vocal range tended to write melodies that didn't move around very much like he used a lot of repeated notes, or the vocal movements would stay very close and pitch, and that's characteristic of a lot of John Lennon songs, and so we knew even going into the problem that you know. musicologists have identified differences in the way that each of these songwriters would write music, so we knew that there were features that could be quantified and picked up. Up and used as distinguish irs in these classification models.

I want to Event at a bottle as Roemer Son on Municipal ID above auditorium. So that was inside red velvet very very European savings so you can. Imagine how supposed to behavioral supposed to be. You're what you're supposed to do. Like a hip hop event in that space was already a little bit like it's like a hip hop in Harvard. It's your little bit of A. Little bit of tension. I for sure all the hit. Bob Denser points spin. Complied to that however what I saw the ad and he fought her completely remixed the replays fake and the purpose, and really made it there on the ciphers everywhere to discard ripples. There were just sitting on this state you work completely repurposing space. So maybe at least in hip-hop, there's went to challenge this theory of how speed controller body and agents right and. 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.

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.

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.

It's crazy isn't that so we're well into now. It seems like every year goes faster and faster faster and I read some way that there is an antidote to that is because woods as we get older we get so used to doing the same things over and over again that. It's like the time and space out. Brian is is going faster or something like that. I read this thing where the analogy is when you driving down the road you drive down the same road every single time and then disappears on.

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.

"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?.

"Berg is working on a book about all this. It's called a crack in creation, JI netting and the unthinkable power to control of Lucien. You can check out his Ted talk at Ted dot com. On today's show. We're asking a very important question, which is who are we? Okay, by the way, do have the answer. Do you know who we are? I know who I am. I have. Inkling of who we are. This is Steven pinker professor of psychology at Harvard University, and I write books on language mind and human nature. So what what is it that makes us who we are? Well, there are some intricately complex circuitry in the brain fabricated over millions of years by natural selection that equips us with a set of motives and emotions and mechanisms for learning and thinking that make us who we are. Okay. There's a lot pack here. So to begin to understand what Steven pinker just said and understand what accounts for the differences between us. We kind of need to understand how far we've actually come in trying to figure this all out. So Stephen, can you? Can you help us with this? Okay. I'll do my best. Okay. Just to get started. Human beings have debated nature versus nurture for hundreds even thousands of years. That is whether who we are, our personalities are behaviors are either entirely inherited from our parents or whether it all comes from the environment around us that when we're born, our minds are basically like blank slates and that all of its structure comes from socialization culture, parenting experience that was Steven pinker on the Ted stage back in two thousand two. In this idea of the blank slate, it was especially popular in the second half of the twentieth century, and it meant that a lot of us went through high school biology hearing stuff like this man has no nature from the historian who say, Ortega gossiped man has no instincts. The anthropologist, Ashley Montagu. The human brain is capable of a full range of behaviors and predisposed to none from. Late scientists, Stephen, Jay Gould. Now, why should it have been such an appealing notion? Well, there are a number of political reasons why people have found it. Congenial foremost is that if we're blank slates, then by definition we are equal because euro equals zero equals zero. But if something is written on the slate, then some people could have more of it than others. And according to this line of thinking that would justify discrimination and inequality, another political fear of human nature is that if we were blank slates, we can perfect mankind, the age old dream of the perfectibility of our species through social engineering. Whereas if we're born with certain instincts than perhaps some of them might condemn us to selfishness prejudice and violence. First of all, they're number of reasons to doubt that the human mind is a blank slate and some of them just come from common sense. As many people have told me over the years, anyone who's had more than one child knows that kids come into the. World with certain temperaments and talents. It doesn't all come from the outside. Oh, and anyone who has both a child and a house pet has surely noticed that the child exposed to speech acquire a human language, whereas the house pet won't presumably because of some innate difference between them and anyone who's ever been in a heterosexual relationship knows that the minds of men in the minds of women are not indistinguishable. So for years, the debate about nature versus nurture has been just that debate. It's one or the other, but Steven pinker has mainly argued that this shouldn't be a debate that who we are comes down to both our genes and our environment. It's a mistake there think that if there's an effect of the environment that shows that we're blanks weights or conversely, if there is such thing as human nature than we are robots, and we're programmed to walk into walls and be completely insensitive to our environment just the wrong way to think about it the right way to think about it. He says, starts with our genome. Well, the fact that we behave like humans, not like around towns or chimpanzees or squirrels is very much termined by our Gino. So our genome sets us apart from animals, but it also sets us apart from each other. The. The differences between two individuals shows a pretty strong statistical effect of our genes. But then here's environment comes in aside from the fact that we are unique, unique history of development that is the process by which are bring gets wired..

It can swell up and blow to the point of getting this largest eleven and as the e through blocks is blocked by the swelling of the prostate men will suffer from frequency of urination at night. In other words, it just can't sleep through the night like they used to and some of them even believe it or not as strange as it sounds, accept it. They don't even give it a second thought. Yeah. Whatever I think I'll get up four times tonight. This is great. I personally I can't relate to it. But I guess it happens. The only reason that happens because they don't know what else to do. They don't know. How to take care of the problem there fear? They fear any kind of medical intervention into that member that part of their body. So they avoid even contact with the doctor, but it's really simple guys if you have frequency of urination, which I qualify any any more than once a night having to urinate, if you're you're noticing your urinary stream is less proud less volume us as it used to be if you notice that you're having trouble in the bedroom with intimacy those can all be related to a prostate swell that can be handled and taken care of by making some minor adjustments in your lifestyle. Exercise more eat less Greece. And take a nutritional supplement. Call PT nine which will give your body the raw materials it can't otherwise find in your diet to solve the problem. And when it does it's going to knock out the issue, and you're going to notice you're gonna sleep like a baby as hundreds and hundreds of thousands of other men now on PT nine taking nine have discovered. They no longer get up in the middle of the night. They have better better sex life.

"We humans are not the only one who keep hurts domesticated animals answered been practicing animal husbandry for millennia. I'm Jim Michener. And this is the pulse of the plant right now. We're listening to highly amplified sounds of a colony of. Edward Wilson is bared professor of science and curator at Harvard University, some kinds of ants engage in what can fairly be called animal husbandry that is to say they keep domestic animals in the form of aphids or similar creatures. Call mealy bugs or scale insects on the roots of plants growing in their nest or on plants growing outside near the nest, and they assiduously attend these cattle of theirs guarding them from insects that would otherwise capture them and eat them and milking them for the sugary excrement that these particular kinds of insects produce aphids, for example, suck up plant sap. They process it in their gut. They take some of the nutrients for themselves and they pass out. Other nutrients in the forms of sugar and amino acids, which comes out at the end of their abdomens in the form of droplets of sweet liquid called honeydew the ants in these insects and harvest the honeydew as a major source of their food. They also carry these insects around from one place to the other building up the population of their cattle and some of the most dominant aggressive and successful ants in the world are these cattle tenders experts in animal husbandry this archival programs part of.

"And you know that one ways is really reinforcing telling stories around chievements that came from from hard work that somebody is not just a genius that music or genius at math, but it's these people, you know, fell in love with these subjects, and they practiced every single day that it's possible that you can actually grow your brand name that I q had fantasized test. You think about school? Like even SAT's when I took them, we're taking the SAT's was like verbal and mathematical. But we know through all the research that there is not just two forms of intelligence and is not only not. Only not fixed that it's it's not the way we're rating it with individuals. It's it's not fine. Meaning is not narrow, but it's four far reaching and so it's, you know, for example, it's somebody could get great verbal math, but if they don't do well on those tests, they feel like they're not. They don't have something offer or they're not smart. But what about people who have great visual spatial intelligence right near talking about like the graphic artists and the architects. What about people who have children who have great interpersonal skills, meaning that they're great with people. I mean, that's such an important that e q., if you will, is so important in today's society where maybe it's not interpersonal self to others may be self to self like intra personal intelligence, people really understand human psychology. What about people who are are great with music, you know, musical intelligence on you have the on the entertainers, the. The singers composers. What about can aesthetic intelligence? People who have children who are great or adults, great with their body, it of your athletes. You have your dancers in so many different forms of this of these intelligence. But I find in Howard Gardner's really credited tell him how to Harvard University is relate, expanding this this multiple intelligence theory. And so I would say that talking to parents that intelligence not fixed, it's fluid. It could grow anyone to reinforce that with your children. Hard work also, that is not just told us not just fixed, but it's also not is not fix it. It's also not fine or narrow. It's far reaching and that is there's a huge spectrum of genius if you will, that it's not a house smart. Somebody is not how smart yards that how smart your children are, but it's the, it's another question how smart they are. It's how are they smart. And so we all have this genius. That we wanted with children. You know, you give them abroad experience a base, and then you could see where their interests go naturally. Then you help them to be able to develop them. The third thing I would say besides intelligence not fixed and that it's also sex thing this far reaching I would stay third thing is that there's no such thing as a good or bad student. There is no such thing as a good about student anymore than there is such thing as good or bad memory. There's a train student in an untrained student and just like with the memory, there's no such thing as good or bad memory. There's a train memory at untrained memory. In what I would say is something practical when you're working with yourself or your team or your family is to take nouns and turn them into verbs. What do I mean by that? I often hear people on social media. They'll message me in saying, oh, I Jim, I, I don't have a good memory or my children don't have focused. I don't have motivation or might might might child doesn't have creativity. These aren't things you have like, now you don't have focus. You do focus. You don't have concentrate. Can you do concentration? You don't have energy, you do energy. You don't have creativity. You do creativity. Just like you don't have a memory. You actually do a memory in the benefit of turning into a verb or visit becomes in action, and it becomes a process. And so in our podcast, her instance, every week we give tips on how to remember names, how to read faster, how do be ineffective, listener, how to take notes. It's always focusing on the how because becomes like a recipe..
