There are billions of people living on this earth. Let's imagine what the world would look like if everyone would just love and respect one another. But, that can't seem to be accomplished. We have racism. We have antisemitism. And we have the media supporting it. We have high profile celebrities supporting it. From MSNBC's Medhi Hasan who held a panel with Anti-Zionist MSNBC commentator Peter Beinart where Peter accused Israel of being an ethnostate that privileges Jews over Palestine to Kanye West, spreading hate. Not only is the issue of antisemitism not getting better, but it is getting worse. Baila Sebrow producer and host of The Definitive Rap interviewed Professor Jeffrey Lax, an attorney, professor and department chair at CUNY, who discussed this issue at great length.  Jeffrey agreed that it's beginning to feel like antisemites are trying to beat each other out on the title of “Antisemite of the Year, and how it has been normalized, and mainstreamed.  He talked about the ring leaders of antisemitism in the United States, and who is tolerating the Left.  He said that CNN is being criticized for covering up the rise of antisemitism, while whitewashing left-wing antisemitism and anti-Jewish attacks by other minority groups, and why they are getting away with it.  Jeffrey openly discussed how as professor at a public university, he is being treated by his non Jewish superiors and other colleagues, and what it's like for others Jewish professors and students.  The interview concluded with Jeffrey criticizing a group that is supposed to be fighting antisemitism, saying that they are more concerned about politics.  *WATCH THIS INTERVIEW

For this Holiday Weekend, hear the year of the #BLTrees series in two days.  Today, June through the three-part conclusion in October -- including your haikus.  Plus, a flashback to May 2020 and listeners' favorite bird songs. First, Part Two of #BLTrees for which listeners were invited to pick a tree and follow it through the year as we checked in every month with Marielle Anzelone, botanist and founder of NYC Wildflower Week (.org), who proposed the series, and different guests each month: June: Charles Nilon, professor in the University of Missouri School of Natural Resources, talks about trees and equity. July: Kate Orff, landscape architect, founder of SCAPE Studio and a professor at Columbia University where she directs the Urban Design Program and the Center for Resilient Cities and Landscapes, looks at trees and climate change resiliency. August:  James Lendemer, lichenologist at CUNY and the New York Botanical Garden and the co-author of Urban Lichens: A Field Guide for Northeastern North America (Yale University Press, 2021), and Miles Zhang, evolutionary biologist specializing in the study of parasitic wasps, talk about two of the many kinds of living creatures that live on trees. September: Brandi Cannon-Force, botanist and science educator, talks about the fruit of trees. October: First, Robert Macfarlane, a fellow at the University of Cambridge and the author of several books, including Underland: A Deep Time Journey (W. W. Norton & Company, 2019), looks deeply at trees as worlds unto themselves.  Then WNYC audio and video producer Amy Pearl, talks about memorial trees.  And the series concludes with Brian and Marielle sharing some of the many of the listeners' haikus written for, about, or in the 'voice of' their trees. And as a 'tree-adjacent' treat, from prime birding season in May of 2020, Heather Wolf, a web developer for Cornell Lab of Ornithology and its eBird project and the author of Birding at the Bridge: In Search of Every Bird on the Brooklyn Waterfront (The Experiment, 2016) talks about how to identify birds by their songs as listeners imitate some of their favorites.   These interviews were lightly edited for time and clarity; the original web versions of the series interviews are available through these links:  #BLTrees series page (Nov 2021 - Oct 2022) Name That Birdsong!

Today on Sojourner Truth, we bring you voices from a virtual press conference on the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal and the recent amicus brief in the Abu-Jamal Case filed by the UN Working Group on people of African descent. The International Body Observes that Racial Bias has tainted the judicial process up to now citing new evidence of innocence and misconduct by Judges and Prosecutors. Mumia Abu-Jamal's lawyers say evidence in boxes discovered in the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office by the new DA at the time, Larry Krasner in 2019 that show his trial was tainted by judicial bias and police and prosecutorial misconduct, including: withholding of evidence, and bribing or coercing witnesses to lie. As of the airing of this show, the plea for a new trial in the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal went before Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Lucretia Clemons on Friday December 16th. Judge Clemons asked the commonwealth if they could confirm that there is no new evidence in the 32 boxes that relate to Brady and Bateson claims. The commonwealth did not confirm. So now Mumia's lawyers will be making arrangements to see those boxes and Judge Clemens said she would issue her ruling in 60-90 days.

Muchos son los temas que apasionan a la escritora y traductora Mayte López (Mexico-Americana), el reto es cómo plasmarlos en sus libros. Con De la Catrina y la flaca (Sudaquia, 2016) y Sensación térmica (Libros del Asteroide, 2021), nos muestran cómo lo hace y que el talento está en escribir con rigor, frescura, usando el lenguaje de una manera orgánica, llena de ironía y matices. En De la Catrina , una autoficción en primera persona, aborda el tema de la enfermedad y de los roles familiares en torno a un enfermo. Su Sensación térmica es una protesta literaria en contra de la violencia de género y las relaciones en las que quedan atrapadas las personas sin posibilidad de salir, de otras violencias que han traido la modernidad, como el "ghosting". Nos cuenta de sus obras y de su tiempo de estudio en NYU y CUNY donde reconoce el gran apoyo de los profesores y de los compañeros que acompañan en este proceso.

Texas State University's Laure Brimbal, assistant professor in the School of Criminal Justice and Criminology at Texas State University, joins the Big Ideas TXST podcast to discuss the research that shows children are judged more harshly for telling blunt truths than for lies. Research published in October by Brimbal suggests children who tell blunt truths such as “I don't want this present – it's ugly!” are judged more harshly by adults than those who bend the truth to be polite or protect others. Published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Moral Education, the research demonstrates the mixed messages that adults are giving children about lying versus telling the truth in different contexts. The study followed 267 adults from the Northeast U.S. being shown videos of children, aged 6 to 15, telling the truth or lying in various social situations. In some scenarios, the 24 different children lied to protect others. Findings showed that the adults judged the blunt truth-tellers more harshly than those who lied or told vague truths, but only when they told lies in order to be polite. When children lied to protect others, telling blunt truths or lies had less of an influence on how adults viewed the child. Prior to coming to Texas State, Brimbal was a postdoctoral research associate at Iowa State University. She earned her Ph.D. in psychology and law from the Graduate Center, CUNY in 2016. Her research interests lie at the intersection of psychology and the criminal justice system, specifically policing. Her focus is on interviewing and issues such as how to build rapport to overcome resistance and how to use evidence in an interview to improve lie-detection accuracy. She has also examined broader issues of decision-making in investigations, evaluating the effectiveness of training approaches and integrating research and practice.

Happy Thanksgiving! I am grateful for all of you this week. Thank you for listening, sharing, and supporting the Development Debrief! This week, Adam Doyno and I debate about the meaning of the term "frontline fundraiser". Should we continue to use it? Or is this a problematic term? We polled all of you on the @devdebrief instagram and learned that 63% of you identify as a frontline fundraiser, 29% of you do not, and 7% of you don't know. We asked you if the term was necessary and 46% of you said yes, 33% of you said no, and 21% of you weren't sure. Take a listen, and talk about it with your teams. We would love to hear your thoughts. Please see Adam's article that inspired the conversation here: https://nycafp.org/News-Events/News-Blog/its-time-to-rethink-the-frontline-fundraiser Adam M.

Join us for the latest episode of All About Change as Hadi Ghaemi, Executive Director of the independent Center for Human Rights in Iran, discusses the reaction of Iranians within Iran and around the world to the death of Mahsa Amini. Women and students are leading this protest movement that doesn't seem to be slowing down. How does it fit into the recent history of protest in Iran, what is different about this wave of protests that Ghaemi calls an “evolution,” and what does it mean for Iranians who live there and in the diaspora?  Hadi Ghaemi is an internationally recognized expert on Iran and human rights. In 2008, he founded the Center for Human Rights in Iran (CHRI), a leading organization documenting human rights violations in Iran and building international coalitions to support human rights. Born in Iran, Ghaemi came to the United States in 1983 as a student, and later became a professor of physics at CUNY as an expert in nanophysics. His other past work focused international attention on the plight of migrant workers in Dubai, as well as the repression of civil society in Iran.  Please find a transcription of this episode:  https://allaboutchangepodcast.com/podcast-episode/hadi-ghaemi/ ‎See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
