A year after the horrifying violence at the Capitol on January 6th, 2021, a simple partisan storyline crowds out a central driver behind the events. Most media are understandably tracking the January 6 Committee and Trump's Republican accomplices, and many pollsters have focused on the growing partisan divides regarding Trump's role in the events or whether rioters should be prosecuted.

A few months after I graduated from Stanford's business school in 2013, Theranos was generating buzz on campus—and not all of it was good. One evening, I found myself in a dinner party conversation with a group of some of the university's brightest scientific minds.
If you follow the public conversation around climate change, you have probably heard about Don't Look Up. The Netflix disaster movie, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence as ignored scientists Randall Mindy and Kate Dibiasky, uses an impending comet strike as a cautionary tale for climate change. When the scientists deliver news of the potentially civilization-ending comet, leaders in government, media and business fail to meet the moment.
A domestic focus for both the U.S. and Chinese governments lowers the odds of a big international conflict in 2022, but it leaves less potential leadership and coordination to respond to emerging crises. That's bad news in a year that will be dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, and a number of regional geopolitical crises. 1. No zero COVID We're done with the pandemic, but it's not yet done with us, and the finish line depends on where you live.
Happens every day. Someone is left behind. Someone is left weeping at the grave. Someone's bed is cold. Someone sets the table for two before remembering there is only one. Someone forgets in sleep and on waking reaches for a hand only to close on emptiness. There will be all those firsts without him. The first holiday meal, the first vacation, the first birthday, anniversary. The first time you circle “widowed” on a form requiring marital status.
The late British theatrical impresario Baron Delfont was fond of telling a story about a young man who drops by his office one day looking for a job. Delfont, who had the reputation for being a notoriously fearsome interviewer, fixes the young man in his gaze for a few moments before taking his water jug and placing it on the desk in front of him. “Young man,” he says, “I hear on the grapevine that you are a persuasion genius. So, I've got a little challenge for you.
In 1907, statistician Francis Galton observed something strange at a county fair: Attendees were participating in a game where they guessed the weight of an ox, with the closest answer to the truth winning a prize. To Galton's surprise, while the guesses of the individual attendees varied wildly, the average of the crowd's guesses was just one pound away from the true weight of the ox—closer than the closest individual's.
De term ‘vrijheid' valt sinds het begin van de coronacrisis bijna constant, maar wat bedoelen we er eigenlijk mee? Over de betekenis van vrijheid wordt al eeuwen gedebatteerd maar heeft de pandemie ons vrijheidsbegrip veranderd? Een gesprek met Annelien De Dijn en Kasper C. Jansen. Verder: de column van John Jansen van Galen, OVT 02-01-22.
Is suffering good for us? Does it make us better people, kinder and more resilient; does it give meaning to our lives? It would be nice if it did, particularly since so many of us have been suffering these days. Around three-quarters of a million Americans have died of Covid, and those who loved them often didn't get to say goodbye or hold a proper funeral. Millions have lost their jobs or their businesses, millions have had their life projects put on hold or derailed.

In the world of international affairs, non-traditional security threats are not new. Many of us have spent decades analyzing and conducting contingency planning for the sudden advent of developments like a pandemic. And yet, despite all the time and resources invested, the COVID-19 pandemic still caught the world woefully unprepared.

This podcast has always talked about treatment options and resources. I always will. And sometimes that includes talking about uncomfortable things. Or boring things, things so boring they make your eyes glaze over. This is definitely true cuz I have been known to go long winded. But if this helps you in your treatment process or understand possible resources process, I'll do it. Because that episode that you cut off after four minutes might be the one you come back to a year from now. It happens. My intent is to be respectful. I might slip up on that. If I don't catch it in the editing process then I will have to own up to it. I have my own opinions and biases. My intent is to be informative with viable, and authoritative sources. You can agree with them or disagree. That is your choice. I need to do this because someone I don't know needs to know this information. If you don't need it or think it is a waste of time, then tune out. In this episode, some news items about accessing treatment. It isn't good news but you do need to know why trying to find help is even harder than before the pandemic. If you need support contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or text “START” to 741-741.

Before Donald Trump had spoken a word Sunday, Dec. 19, at First Baptist Dallas it would've been understandable if those in attendance had trouble remembering the “reason for the season.” Jesus was celebrated, yes. But the entire Christmas service was built around Trump's advent: lines wrapped around the building starting 3 hours before the event; security screening for everyone in the main sanctuary; Trump's smiling face on every program.
George Floyd's death in police custody brought a huge and a rapid increase in protests over police brutality—thousands of marches driven by the assumption that taking to the streets will bring change. Does it? Critics argue that protest brings mostly more strife, pointing to the weeks of violent demonstrations in Portland, Ore., or the melee during the protests over the Jacob Blake shooting in Kenosha, Wis., that culminated in the Rittenhouse shootings.
America has begun the gradual process of accepting that COVID-19 is going to be endemic—meaning it will always be present in the population to some degree—due to inherent properties of the virus (animal reservoirs, high transmissibility, long period of infectiousness, symptoms similar to other pathogens), and will remain so for the foreseeable future. However, the U.S. has an impressive suite of tools to deal with this reality.
The new, heavily mutated variant of SARS-CoV-2, Omicron first detected by scientists in South Africa, has put the public health community worldwide on high alert and the public on edge. Since then, evidence has mounted that the variant is highly transmissible. It is far more transmissible than, and is coming to predominate over, its immediately preceding variant, Delta.
The last 100-plus days of a ban on most abortions after six weeks in Texas have made painfully clear the future anti-abortion extremists want, not just in Texas, but across the country. And now a majority of Supreme Court Justices, having failed to put an end to Texas's ban, seem poised to let Mississippi's 15-week abortion ban stand or perhaps even to reverse Roe v. Wade completely.
I'm reminded of Mayfield, Kentucky every day by a poster that hangs in my living room. I found it in my grandfather's garage after he died and I had it framed. It depicts a young boy in overalls, his feet bare and dirty, a shaggy dog at his side, both of them looking up in wonder as an airplane passes over a patchwork of farms below.

On January 6, 2021, William J. Walker was head of the D.C. National Guard. He had buses full of guardsmen in riot gear ready to deploy in case Donald Trump's “Stop the Steal” rally turned dangerous. But when rioters violently stormed the Capitol building, the Guard was nowhere to be found. Walker says he was forced to wait for three hours before his superiors allowed him to send in his troops. “My soldiers were asking me, ‘Sir, what the hell is going on?'” Walker says. “‘Are they watching the news? Are they watching what's going on at the Capitol?' And I had no answer. I don't recall ever being in that position, where I did not have an answer for my soldiers.” Now, almost one year later, Walker is the sergeant-at-arms of the U.S. House of Representatives—the first Black man to ever hold that office. The Experiment's correspondent Tracie Hunte and producer Peter Bresnan visit Walker in his new office at the Capitol to ask him about what happened on January 6, and what he's doing to make sure it never happens again.
