Rep. Jim Banks was one of nearly a dozen members of the House Republican Study Committee who met Trump, 76, just a day after the shocking raid on his Florida estate. “He didn’t seem defeated in the least bit — he was very fired up, very upbeat,” Banks told Fox News of the ” great three-hour-long” chat at Trump’s New Jersey golf club, Bedminister. “He said we are going to like his decision and it is only a matter of time before he will make that decision known,” Banks told Fox News of Trump, who hours earlier released a campaign-style video promising that “the best is yet to come.” https://www.theepochtimes.com/trump-suggests-fbi-may-have-planted-evidence-during-mar-a-lago-raid_4655282.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport Since we’re already talking about Trump, how about this: Trump Suggests FBI May Have ‘Planted’ Evidence During Mar-a-Lago Raid Former President Donald Trump suggested the FBI may have planted evidence during the bureau’s raid at his Mar-a-Lago home because members of his team were blocked from watching the agents. In a Truth Social post on Wednesday, the former president wrote that “the FBI and others from the Federal Government would not let anyone, including my lawyers, be anywhere near the areas that were rummaged and otherwise looked at during the raid on Mar-a-Lago.” “Everyone was asked to leave the premises, they wanted to be left alone, without any witnesses to see what they were doing, taking or, hopefully not, ‘planting.’ Why did they STRONGLY insist on having nobody watching them, everybody out?” said Trump. FBI agents spent about 10 hours scouring his private office on Monday and broke into his safe, according to Trump and members of his family. Bruce Reinhart, a Florida federal magistrate judge, signed off on a warrant to search the former president’s Florida property. Reinhart worked as a federal prosecutor until 2008 when he became a defense attorney representing employees of convicted sex trafficker and wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein. Employees included Epstein’s pilots, a scheduler, and others. The Epoch Times contacted the FBI for comment. Neither the bureau nor Attorney General Merrick Garland have offered public comments about the raid, drawing even questions and condemnation from Democrat politicians. Hey, speaking of those Jan. 6th hearings… https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/jan-6-hearings-public/2022/08/09/id/1082365/ Monmouth Poll: Jan. 6 Hearings Having Little Impact on Public The House Jan. 6 Select Committee hearings have done little to change people's opinions surrounding the 2021 Capitol attack, a new poll found. Regarding former President Donald Trump's culpability in the assault and claims of election fraud, public opinion stands pretty much as it was before testimony of former presidential aides during the last three public hearings, the latest Monmouth University poll found. Not only that, Trump's favorability rating is nearly identical to where it was immediately after the 2020 election. Also, 4 in 10 Americans would lean toward backing a comeback bid in 2024, according to the Monmouth Poll. Overall, just 8% of Americans said the hearings have changed their minds about the Capitol incident — basically unchanged from 6% who said the same in June. "When we released our June poll, I said the committee was preaching to the choir. These current results suggest they haven't recruited any new singers since then," said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute. The survey found that 38% of respondents believe Trump was responsible directly for what happened on Jan. 6. That number stood at 42% right before the testimony of former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson. "The sensational revelations during the hearings do not seem to have moved the public opinion needle on Trump's culpability for either the riot or his spurious election fraud claims," Murray said. Only 41% — including 73% of Democrats — favor charging Trump with crimes related to his involvement on Jan. 6. A total of 34% — including 66% of Republicans — were opposed, and another 25% were unsure. A majority (61%) of Americans have at least a little trust the House committee is conducting a fair investigation, but there's a huge difference between Democrats (91%) and Republicans (35%). You see how crazy our culture is? This is why we need to train our kids up on the solid rock… amd a good place to do that for your college aged kids, is NSA: New Saint Andrews: Today’s culture shifts like sand. But New Saint Andrews College is established on Christ, the immovable rock. It is a premier institution that forges evangelical leaders who don’t fear or hate the world. Guided by God’s Word, they take the world back because they’re equipped with the genius of classical liberal arts and God-honoring wisdom, thanks to a faculty dedicated to academic rigor and to God’s kingdom.Find out more, at nsa.edu/ Some news on the Desantis front: https://freebeacon.com/democrats/top-desantis-challenger-paid-thousands-to-gen-z-liberal-activist-facing-campus-wide-allegations-of-sexual-assault/ Top DeSantis Challenger Paid Thousands to Gen Z Liberal Activist Facing ‘Campus-Wide Allegations of Sexual Assault’ On July 8, Democrat Charlie Crist's gubernatorial campaign paid $2,250 to Politically Correct Strategies—a consulting company registered to Gen Z liberal activist and former Dartmouth student Jack Cocchiarella—for "digital consulting." Just weeks later, on July 28, the prestigious school's College Democrats chapter revealed it ousted Cocchiarella from the club "in late October 2021, following campus-wide allegations of sexual assault." Those allegations emerged publicly in a string of December 2021 Reddit posts, which accused Cocchiarella of using "his Twitter notoriety and left-wing credentials to position himself as an ally. Then, once people let their guards down, he rapes them." Crist, who did not return repeated requests for comment, has remained silent on the accusations facing his campaign aide. By his own logic, that silence means he endorses Cocchiarella's alleged behavior—in a June 29 tweet, Crist pressed DeSantis to condemn the January 6 riots, writing, "Is it just me, or do you agree that his silence = endorsement?" Crist is not the only prominent Democrat to hire Cocchiarella following the troubling allegations. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's (R., Ga.) Democratic opponent, Marcus Flowers, has paid Cocchiarella's firm more than $40,000 since October 2021, when the activist announced his "new role" as Flowers's digital director. Flowers has his own alleged issues with women. In July 2016, the Democrat attempted to dump his ex-wife—Russian national Svetlana Chudinova—at a local homeless shelter, court documents reported by the New Republic show. Flowers did not dispute the incident and instead defended his attempt to offload Chudinova, saying he "felt she had a personality disorder that was not previously disclosed." In turn, Chudinova accused Flowers of threatening to strike her. Cocchiarella, whose Twitter account boasts more than 250,000 followers and includes a photo of the activist smiling alongside President Joe Biden, enrolled as a Dartmouth freshman during the 2021-22 school year. While it's unclear what specific "digital consulting" services he provided Crist, Cocchiarella publicly endorsed the former governor over fellow DeSantis challenger Nikki Fried (D.) just days after Crist's campaign paid him. Flowers, meanwhile, routinely replies to Cocchiarella's tweets to solicit campaign contributions. In October 2021, he called the young activist "an outstanding young man." In addition to his work with Crist and Flowers, Cocchiarella has collaborated with the Lincoln Project, an anti-Republican super PAC founded by disgraced sexual predator John Weaver. Cocchiarella during an Aug. 1 podcast appearance did, however, confirm his decision to transfer from Dartmouth to fellow Ivy League school Columbia. The activist did not discuss why he opted to leave Dartmouth after just one year at the college and is yet to publicly address the allegations leveled against him. Cocchiarella, Dartmouth College Democrats, and Dartmouth's Title IX office did not return requests for comment. Well isn’t that just nice? https://cbs6albany.com/news/local/legislation-to-change-the-term-inmate-for-those-in-the-prison-system Let’s shift our eyes back to the North East: Gov. Hochul signs legislation changing the term "inmate" for those in the prison system The word "inmate" is out in New York State Law, and that decision is getting a lot of attention. A top political analyst told me Tuesday that Governor Hochul's decision to substitute the term "incarcerated individuals" for inmates in state law is her way of trying to reconcile issues of justice with issues of safety. But Dr. Lee Miringoff says it's a delicate balancing act when her opponent Lee Zeldin is accusing her of not being tough enough on crime. Hochul's critics say she is once again putting the needs of the criminal ahead of the needs of the victim, while those who approve of the change say it gives the prison population a better chance at reintegrating into society. Melanie Trimble of the New York Civil Liberties Union says you can attribute the rise in crime--if there is one--to many factors, like the pandemic and an increase in gun sales. She says the language change helps to dignify--and humanize--people who have done their time. Dr. Miringoff of Marist College says the Governor has already chosen a clear path on the issue of crime by not bringing the legislature back to deal with bail reform, and he believes she's banking on this language change helping her with her base in November. Trimble argues that using inclusive language that makes those returning to society after a stint in prison feel comfortable is not a heavy lift, and one that will make a real difference in peoples lives. She said, "You know, we love to label people, and this is a community that is extremely vulnerable. We need to provide them with as many possibilities and hopeful futures as possible." Let’s shift things to the topic that I love… sports! Let’s talk Baseball today: https://www.boundingintosports.com/2022/08/after-abandoning-their-heritage-and-name-the-cleveland-guardians-attendance-tanks/ This is for you Mark Dewey: After Abandoning Their Heritage And Name, The Cleveland Guardians’ Attendance Tanks Last year, in an attempt to appease woke liberals, the Cleveland Indians changed their name to the Cleveland Guardians after previously announcing their intent to drop the Indians name in 2020. The team released a statement announcing their decision, “The Cleveland Indians today announced our decision to begin the process of changing from our team name ‘Indians.'” “Since July, we have conducted an extensive process to learn how our team name affected different constituencies and whether it aligned with our organizational values,” the organization explained. “As a result of that process, we have decided to move forward with changing the current team name and determining a new, non-Native American based name for the franchise.” They further detailed, “In our statement in June 2020, we acknowledged the importance of taking a leadership role in diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts across the community and enhancing our support for underserved and under-represented groups. As part of that commitment, we heard from individuals and groups who shared a variety of views and opinions on the issue. Their efforts to bring people together have apparently failed as they’ve brought about 6,000 fewer people together per game. Average attendance has dropped to 15,636 fans a game this year according to Baseball Reference. A steep decline from their 21,465 average attendance in 2019, the most recent year not affected by Covid hysteria. Albeit attendance is up from 2021 where average attendance was only 13,758. Tv ratings have also fallen by 30 percent according to Forbes. This is not the result of fans not showing up because the team is tanking like in Oakland. Cleveland is only a game back of the division lead, right in the middle of the playoff hunt. Cleveland is a small market team that is already short on cash in comparison to bigger market teams like New York, LA, and Boston. The loss of revenue from lower ticket sales only exasperates this problem. The team attempted to satisfy the demands of a group of people, woke liberals, that don’t represent their fanbase and now they’re paying the price. The Venn diagram of people offended by their previous name and fans of the team itself may as well be two distinct circles. The Guardians are not the first team to come under attack for a politically incorrect name. In 2020 the Washington Redskins changed their name to the Washington Football Team before settling on the only slightly less generic “Washington Commanders” a year later. Washington caved in the face of immense pressure by members of the media who claimed their 80 year old name was a racist slur. Interestingly enough, the Washington Post ran a poll about the term Redskin, and found that 9 out of 10 native Americans didn’t find the term ‘Redskin’ offensive back in 2016… Huh! Not every team felt compelled to give in to the demands of the woke mob. The Chicago Blackhawks of the NHL came under similar pressure to change their Native American themed name and logo. Instead of throwing away decades of team history and tradition to switch to a soulless new moniker that their fans would have no connection to, they simply said no. Deciding instead to use the notoriety created by their use of the Blackhawk name to honor Native American culture. “We celebrate Black Hawk’s legacy by offering ongoing reverent examples of Native American culture, traditions and contributions, providing a platform for genuine dialogue with local and national Native American groups,” the team continued. “As the team’s popularity grew over the past decade, so did that platform and our work with these important organizations.” Hopefully, this latest iteration of the “get woke go broke” phenomenon will teach teams that the silent majority in America are the ones that pay their bills not the perpetually offended minority.

Zora Neale Hurston was an important figure in the Harlem Renaissance, but her novels didn't conform to the style of her contemporaries. As a result, her work was almost lost—until the writer Alice Walker found her unmarked grave in 1974. Now, Hurston's novel Their Eyes Were Watching God is on high school reading lists across the US. Dartmouth professor and poet Joshua Bennett discusses the novel's longstanding impact and what it can teach us about cancel culture.

A 170-plus years ago, Henry David Thoreau began his legendary hermit walks in New England. Many of these walks were published later as some of his most cherished works as a naturalist: Walden, The Maine Woods, and Cape Cod.Artist, writer and New England native Ben Shattuck does the same in Six Walks: In the Footsteps of Henry David Thoreau, published by Tin House Books, which charts six journeys taken by Shattuck, each one inspired by a walk once taken by Thoreau. With little more than a loaf of bread, brick of cheese, and a notebook, Shattuck sets out to retrace Thoreau's path through the Cape's outer beaches, from the elbow to Provincetown's fingertip.After the Cape, Shattuck walks down the coastline of his hometown, and then through the Allagash. Along the way, he encounters unexpected characters, landscapes, and stories, seeing for himself the restorative effects that walking can have on a dampened spirit. Shattuck finds himself uncovering new insights about family, love, friendship, and fatherhood, and understanding more deeply the lessons walking can offer through life's changing seasons.Shattuck splits his time between Los Angeles and Coastal Massachusetts, where he also runs a Davoll's General Store in Dartmouth. We caught up during the Spring to discuss his first book, Thoreau and the therapeutic nature of walking.Reading by Ben ShattuckMusic by Jürgen Müller

BUY THE BOOKS   Ubi SuntBy Blaise Agüera y Arcas   Artificial Intelligence: A Guide for Thinking HumansBy Melanie Mitchell     Artificial Intelligence (AI), a term first coined at a Dartmouth workshop in 1956, has seen several boom and bust cycles over the last 66 years. Is the current boom different? The most exciting advance in the field since 2017 has been the development of “Large Language Models,” giant neural networks trained on massive databases of text on the web. Still highly experimental, Large Language Models haven't yet been deployed at scale in any consumer product — smart/voice assistants like Alexa, Siri, Cortana, or the Google Assistant are still based on earlier, more scripted approaches. Large Language Models do far better at routine tasks involving language processing than their predecessors. Although not always reliable, they can give a strong impression of really understanding us and holding up their end of an open-ended dialog. Unlike previous forms of AI, which could only perform specific jobs involving rote perception, classification, or judgment, Large Language Models seem to be capable of a lot more — including possibly passing the Turing Test, named after computing pioneer Alan Turing's thought experiment that posits when an AI in a chat can't be distinguished reliably from a human, it will have achieved general intelligence. But can Large Language Models really understand anything, or are they just mimicking the superficial “form” of language? What can we say about our progress toward creating real intelligence in a machine? What do “intelligence” and “understanding” even mean? Blaise Agüera y Arcas, a Fellow at Google Research, and Melanie Mitchell, the Davis Professor of Complexity at the Santa Fe Institute, take on these thorny questions in a wide-ranging presentation and discussion. The discussion will be moderated by Lili Cheng, Corporate Vice President of the Microsoft AI and Research division. Blaise Agüera y Arcas is a VP and Fellow at Google Research, where he leads an organization working on basic research and new products in Artificial Intelligence. His team focuses on the intersection of machine learning and devices, developing AI that augments humanity while preserving privacy. One of the team's technical contributions is Federated Learning, an approach to training neural networks in a distributed setting that avoids sending user data off-device. Blaise also founded Google's Artists and Machine Intelligence program and has been an active participant in cross-disciplinary dialogs about AI and ethics, fairness and bias, policy, and risk. He has given TED talks on Sead­ragon and Pho­to­synth (2007, 2012), Bing Maps (2010), and machine creativity (2016). In 2008, he was awarded MIT's TR35 prize.

He called the region “The Bridgewater Triangle”.The triangle includes a number of locations known for unexplained occurrences; the most prominent of which include the legendary Hockomock Swamp and the infamous Freetown-Fall River State Forest. The triangle's traditional boarders are revealed by connecting the dots between the town of Abington to the North, the town of Freetown to the Southeast, and the town of Rehoboth to the Southwest.The area hosts an unusually high volume of reports involving strange happenings, baffling mysteries and sinister deeds. From ghostly hauntings and cryptid animal sightings, to UFO encounters and evidence of satanic ritual sacrifice, the Bridgewater Triangle serves as one of the world's most diverse hotspots for paranormal activity.The first-ever feature-length documentary on the subject, The Bridgewater Triangle explores the history of this fascinating region. The film features a number of local residents providing first-hand accounts of unexplained occurrences. In addition, an all-star assembly of paranormal researchers, folklorists and authors provide expert analysis regarding the many mysteries of the triangle.Aaron Cadieux is an award-winning documentary filmmaker from Dartmouth, Massachusetts.

Dartmouth College is removing all federal and institutional loans from its undergraduate financial aid awards and replacing them with expanded scholarship grants, beginning with the current summer term, the school's president said. Currently, Dartmouth undergraduates from families with an annual income of $125,000 or less who possess typical assets are offered need-based aid without a required loan component. Dartmouth is now removing the loan requirement for undergraduates from families with annual income of more than $125,000 who receive need-based financial aid. This will decrease the debt burden for hundreds of middle-income Dartmouth students and their families by an average of $22,000 over four years, the school said in a news release June 20. A fundraising effort that began in 2018 called The Call to Lead has deepened Dartmouth's commitment to make a college education accessible and affordable for the most promising and talented students from around the world and from all economic backgrounds, President Philip Hanlon said. More than 65 families supported the campaign goal to eliminate loan requirements from Dartmouth's undergraduate financial aid awards, committing more than $80 million in gifts to the endowment. Dartmouth is joining Ivy League peers Brown University, Columbia University, Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale University in adopting no-loan policies, The Dartmouth newspaper reported.

Learn more at https://education.asco.org, or email us at education@asco.org. TRANSCRIPT Dr. Jeremy Cetnar: Hello, and welcome to Part 2 of the ASCO Educational Podcast episode focused on career choices and transitions. My name is Jeremy Cetnar. I'm a Medical Oncologist and Associate Professor of medicine at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland. In Part 1, Dr. Lauren Abrey and Dr. Jason Faris about their motivations for pursuing medicine, and how they arrived at the different positions they've had. Today, we'll further explore career fulfillment, maximizing impact on patient care, and differences between working in academia and industry. Dr. Faris, what have you learned from the different roles you have had, and what aspects of your current work do you find most rewarding? Dr. Jason Faris: So, there's a lot to discuss here. In my academic and patient care roles, I felt extremely privileged to forge strong bonds with patients and their families, to offer support, counseling and hope in the context of making really difficult, challenging decisions... to rejoice in the individual victories, whether that was clean scans and normal tumor markers after adjuvant therapy for Stage III colon cancer, using the neoadjuvant therapy in locally advanced pancreatic cancer and watching them go to resection, helping to maintain quality of life by addressing key symptoms that a cancer patient unfortunately must endure, and providing emotional support when things do not go as hoped. Whereas the latter times in GI cancer patients are unfortunately all too common. And the moments or clinic visits where the cancer has recurred, or the treatments aren't working really do take their emotional toll on clinicians. I'll just say I took many of those losses personally. And as a general rule in medicine, I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve, which can be a mixed blessing. But that shared sense of purpose and the many times where you were able to offer something meaningful to patients and families provided real fulfillment and joy. I think at the time of the two transitions I've had, this was fundamentally the most difficult part for me, which was relinquishing these direct patient care interactions. So, another highly rewarding part of my role in academia was working with colleagues to open clinical trials or conduct clinical research. I had opportunities to be mentored by or collaborate with multiple people Ted Hong, Dave Ryan, Chin Wu, Jeff Clark, David Ting, and others at Mass General, as well as Lionel Lewis, Konstantin Dragnev, and Steve Leach at Dartmouth. Treating patients on clinical trials was always a stressful enterprise but highly rewarding, and I had the chance to be part of some really amazing groundbreaking trials at MGH, in some cases witnessing breathtaking responses in patients who were out of treatment options, in some cases for many months. Another highly rewarding aspect of my role in academia or my roles in academia involved all of the many opportunities to engage in teaching and mentoring, whether that's with medical students, residents, or fellows, where the enthusiasm for helping patients and learning was always infectious. Finally, I'd be remiss not to mention the wonderful nurse practitioners that I've worked with like Patty Tammaro at Mass General, with whom I cared for many GI cancer patients for years, and Elizabeth McGrath at Dartmouth, whose wisdom and dedication to patient care was really inspiring. On the industry side, on the NIBR side, I've had the opportunity to work on novel therapeutics that are making a bench to bedside transition from a drug candidate to a first in human Phase 1 trial, which to me is a thrilling, complex, and highly fulfilling endeavor that contributes critical knowledge to advance the field. And in the best of cases, identifies therapies that has the potential, that have the potential to alter the prognosis for thousands of future patients. As a clinician or clinical investigators, those times where your patients are responding to their treatment, whether it's on or off a clinical trial are wonderful and so incredibly rewarding. And I would argue that there's a similar phenomenon in running trials in industry, where there's nothing quite as magical as having a cadre of patients who had run out of treatment options, enrolled to a clinical trial designed based on compelling science, go on to experience sustained and significant responses. I absolutely love the commitment to patients and to follow the science, the collaborations among our teams, and interactions with our academic colleagues which I really treasure. I'm part of a team whose responsibility is to ensure the development of a clinical protocol to safely evaluate the potential of that therapeutic, carefully monitor for adverse events, evaluate the emerging pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data, and most fulfilling of all, begin to observe responses in patients whose cancers had progressed on standard of care therapies. So I think the chance to have an opportunity to explore new therapeutics that might impact the eventual treatment of thousands of people with cancer is what keeps me engaged and fulfilled. It's been a wonderful opportunity and applies the clinical skills and patient focus from my prior roles and combines this with the resources and expert teams to run and analyze clinical trials. Dr. Jeremy Cetnar: If I can opine a little bit and ask you guys some philosophical questions. I think what I'm hearing today and what I've heard from other folks who have made that transition is that in industry versus academics, you work in a team, and you're evaluated as a team. And that's very different than in academics. You're very much rewarded for, whether it's patient volume or number of papers or leadership. That seems to me like a very big difference in terms of academic versus industry. And I'm wondering if you guys can comment on that a little bit more. Then you guys also mentioned, at least you just mentioned this, Dr. Faris, is that some will also say that when you go into industry, you're able to just impact a much bigger population of folks rather than typically in an academic setting where you are working one on one with patients. And yes, you have your IETs and whatnot, but there's just a bigger vision. Would you say that those are two accurate differences that are fairly significant, Dr. Abrey? Dr. Lauren Abrey: Yes. You are certainly part of a team. But I think if we're honest, you're part of a team when you're in the hospital. So I ran the team of research nurses. I ran the fellowship program. I needed people to manage the patients who were in-patient and to help me look after the clinical trial conduct paperwork, etc. and so I think that does translate into the setup that you find when you move to industry. It may be a little bit that your personal success, and industry can get very sometimes focused on metrics, like what have you contributed? What has the team been successful? So you do need to think about how to set yourself up for success. If you're leading the team, how do you set the team up for success? To me, that doesn't feel terribly different than academic medicine, but I could see where it could be a change depending on what your role was in the academic world. So I think that's reasonable. The other part of what you said, I struggle with that sometimes. I feel like we tell ourselves, that we're impacting more patients. And I think that's true. If we get a drug approved, and potentially that drug is used, not only in the US, but across western countries, in Europe, potentially in China, you get a sense of that. But it's like how do you feel that? You feel the story of an individual patient. Sensing the scale can be hard. News media know this well. They often tell the story of a particular person in the Ukraine right now to try to help us understand the scale of the war, because otherwise, it's a little impossible to digest. So for me, that doesn't always resonate. I think it resonates when I go out and talk to the different physicians practicing in different parts of the world. And I think that has been an incredibly eye-opening experience for me being in the global organization, is seeing the impact well beyond the US, because I think most companies are very indexed on the US. And we understand US practice well, but I think understanding the impact we can have across the world is also really inspiring, humbling, challenging, and something I think we all have to contend with because it's not the same everywhere. So yes, no, and in between, that's where philosophical lives, so thank you. Dr. Jeremy Cetnar: Yeah. Well, that's a fascinating perspective, the international perspective. Very interesting. Dr. Faris, how about you? Dr. Jason Faris: I completely agree with Lauren. I think on the team question, I definitely feel like we worked on teams in academia as well, whether we're talking about the multidisciplinary groups that are needed to take care of GI cancer patients, which always involves multiple specialties. I think at MGH, in particular, we would tend to go see the patient as a group, which is a bit unusual, to try to get everyone's schedules aligned, to be able to go into the room together. But it really presented an opportunity for the patient and the families to ask questions of us as a group and hear any disagreement that's in the room between the providers right there. There's absolutely a ton of teamwork that goes into taking care of patients. But what you were alluding to, I think, is also right, which is your promotion, your opportunities for advancement are sometimes couched on or developed from accomplishments on the individual side. And I would say more so than is true in industry. I think that's correct as well. I mean, certainly there are multidisciplinary grants that I was a part of, of course, publications that had multiple authors to which I was a contributing author. Sometimes I was first or last author, sometimes I was in the middle, but contributing to the paper. So there was teamwork there, but no question that there's an element of individual accomplishment. How many first- and last-author publications do you have? What's the grant situation look like in terms of ability to supplement the RVUs that you need to generate your clinical…? There's no question that there's an element of that that's not a present to the same degree in an industry role. And I just wanted to speak to the impact side, because I also agree with what Lauren said here. I think the idea and the hope is that in industry, we have an opportunity to potentially affect the lives of many, many, many patients, thousands of patients potentially, with a given cancer type if a new therapy is a homerun and takes off and is approved. That's a huge draw and I think something that motivates all of us is to be a part of something like that. But of course, not every drug, far from it, unfortunately, is going to end up as an approved drug that impacts thousands of patients. So I think it requires some recognition of that fact and patience and continuing to work on multiple projects, and always under the prism of doing the right thing for the patients while those trials are open. And I think that's the key, as well as working on scientifically exciting projects, really proud to say in NIBR that we follow the science. If there's an indication to be explored, based on the science, it may not be the most common indication in cancer, but if the science leads us to that place, that's what we work on. I think that decision making gets tougher, obviously, as you move through the system into a later stage, more commercially informed decision. But I think and certainly on the early phase trials side, that's something that's really exciting. I think on the academic side, taking direct care of patients, you have incredible impact on individual patients, and there's a lot of individual patients. I think you have tremendous opportunity for impact there as well, and your impact can be measured by those that you mentor and teach as well, the committees that you serve on influencing other trials that may be open at your institution. So I would in no way suggest that the impact is less in academia. I don't think that's true at all. I think it's just a different approach. And it is true that if you're lucky enough to work on a program in industry that ends up being an approved drug, you can help thousands of future patients or your team has helped thousands of future patients. That's also true when you're on the academic setting, serving as a PI, contributing safety data and efficacy data, really giving the best information back to the sponsor that you can or maybe you're running your own investigator-initiated study that can change a standard of care down the road. So that's the homerun. That's kind of the Grand Slam of situations that might develop as a medical oncologist on either side of the divide. Dr. Jeremy Cetnar: Thank you. I'd like to shift gears just a little bit and ask you, for people who are deciding for a transition in their career, what are some characteristics or skills or other attributes that you think would make one successful in industry? What are some things that are really, really important to be successful? And that might be different than in an academic situation or not? I'm not sure. And maybe that's another question is, you know, what are some of the things that make people successful in a career in industry? Dr. Abrey? Dr. Lauren Abrey: So I think there are so many things that you can do in industry that depending on what your strength is, I think you have the opportunity to play to that. So again, I think if you are very entrenched in the science, and that is really what makes you want to get out of bed in the morning, being in the early research group, whether it's Novartis, Roche, other companies or small biotech, you can really dig in and spend time thinking and contributing in incredible ways. And if you're the person who is much more interested, perhaps in finding out, what's influencing the patterns of care and why people are using certain drugs or certain treatment paradigms, you could absolutely work on the absolute other end and work in medical affairs and be the person who's out there, who's the critical partner to whether folks at MGH, OHSU, major cancer centers around the world, to figure out how do we bring those two together. And I think the group in the middle typically, like the drug development group that's getting the approval, so running the large Phase 3 studies, that requires people who are in it a little bit for the long haul. Those tend to be large studies. They run over several years, you're constantly looking at the incoming data, and yet you're blind to the results. So you have to be pretty diligent while you're in that space and willing to just buckle down and work hard. But I think there are things for everyone. And I think it's a little bit similar to what I discovered when you went into medicine. Not everybody's going to be a cardiothoracic surgeon. Only a few of us end up in this weird oncology space. But I think it does give you the chance to reinvent yourself and explore a few things. So I wouldn't say you have to have something. I think probably what you should do is talk to a lot of people. I think people make a lot of assumptions about what a change to a career in industry is or means. And you probably don't know what you don't know. So call people like me or Jason or someone who's done it and talk to people, because I think that's probably the best way you can make an informed choice. Dr. Jeremy Cetnar: What do you think, Dr. Faris? Dr. Jason Faris: Can I offer some advice? So are we in this kind of advice section? Dr. Jeremy Cetnar: Absolutely. Please do. Dr. Jason Faris: Yeah. So I would say my advice to oncology trainees would be to keep an open mind and stay flexible. I've got a Wayne Gretzky quote that I'd like to bring into this here, which is 'You miss 100% of the shots that you never take'. And I feel like I've probably taken that flexibility to a bit of an extreme with my career path and transitions. But ultimately, it's really enabled me to experience diverse career opportunities that I might otherwise not have had the chance to really experience. I think sometimes there can be assumptions or negative stereotypes about moves from academia to industry. But my own personal experience, now twice, at NIBR has been overwhelmingly positive. I've learned a tremendous amount from both environments, which I think provides me with a different perspective on design, conduct, and analysis of clinical trials and allows me to bring a patient-centric view into clearer focus in my industry role. I think it's also really critical to recognize that there are significant stressors and positives to each of these career paths. And they're not necessarily one way. I know multiple colleagues who have made a transition from academia to industry. Other colleagues like me who did return to clinical practice in a clinical investigator role or returning from industry to an academic lab, I've seen that happen multiple times, and multiple colleagues, of course, that have transitioned to other industry roles. So regardless of which path someone ultimately pursues, the real critical thing to me is to remember what brought us to medical school in the first place, which is a commitment and focus to patients above all else. I believe this can be achieved in many career options, direct patient care, teaching and mentoring, clinical investigator roles in the academic setting, or in industry by collaborating with academic colleagues and patient groups, focusing on programs that have high potential to advance treatment options for diseases with high unmet medical need. I happen to think GI cancers are the poster child for that, but you know, I'm a bit biased, and designing trials that are as patient-centric as possible. So that's the kind of advice that I would offer to people is not to think of these as mutually exclusive or there's only one way forward or if I make this decision, it's irreversible. I don't think any of those things are true. And I feel like I'm living proof. Dr. Jeremy Cetnar: Dr. Abrey, back to you. Any advice? Dr. Lauren Abrey: I can only agree with Jason, and I know a number of people who've gone in both directions, including some who have been in pharma for quite a long time, and then make a decision to go back to patient care. Sometimes, I'm going to say, like as a final career chapter, but it has been a bit like that, including in countries where it's quite difficult to return to practice, that they need to go back and redo some training. So I think, move forward, do things that make you want to get out of bed in the morning, and that probably will change over the course of your career. But I think don't be afraid to try something because the worst thing that could happen—that's always a good question to ask yourself, right? What is the worst thing that could happen? If it doesn't work out, you can probably make another choice. I also think you should, you know, I already said talk to lots of people. But pay attention to that network that you have and nurture it, cultivate it, because some of those people in your network might become mentors at some point, might become advocates or sponsors at some point. And always, always, always take the opportunity to mentor somebody else, including if you're young, do some reverse mentoring. I have gotten some of my best mentoring from somebody that I agreed to mentor, but he really ended up reverse mentoring me. And he's actually now leading a very small biotech and you could argue has leapfrogged part of my career. And that's a fantastic dialogue that I get to have. So, great fun. We only go around this once. So have some fun while you're doing good things, too. Dr. Jeremy Cetnar: Ain't that the truth? And I'll tell you, this is a small world. It does feel like the more people you talk to, all of a sudden, we all are connected. And so I just want to thank you, Dr. Abrey, Dr. Faris, for your time today, for your perspective, your interesting stories.

The original aim of this podcast series was to tell the stories of many classmates of the Dartmouth Class of 1996 before our 25th reunion. Due to the postponement, we've had a chance to interview even more people than we thought we could. The Reunion is coming up next week and we can't wait to make even deeper connections in person in a live event and just through normal conversation. The show will be taking a much deserved hiatus.But before we do take a break, we wanted to reflect on what we learned in our 100-plus conversations. First: Who we thought we would be and who we have become are usually not the same…at least when using that narrow interpretation of “becoming” to reflect our professional pursuits or our family unit make-up or things like that. Along the way, some windows were closed, some other doors opened, and we have mostly made our way to where we are NOW by taking those winding paths.But WHO we really are…that's more complicated. On one hand, I would say our guests' stories these two years have shown that while our edges might have gotten honed by way of a personal wake-up call of some sort or another, under it ALL the Values we hold and WHAT we value the most, have generally remained stable over time. And yet, we've all changed a bit, too.In the episode with Jonathon Stewart, we talked a lot about the evolution of people throughout their lives – even ourselves. As Stew put it “we do keep evolving as people. And there are things about ourselves that we may or may not know. [And] life is a continual journey of discovery.”If you haven't been doing this all along…we invite all of you listeners of this podcast to think about the ways you have evolved over the past however-many years. In what ways are you the same person you were a decade or two ago? In what ways are you different? How have the experiences you've had—both fabulous and challenging—impacted which parts of yourself you've leaned into? Are there any pieces of you that you left behind? Was that for the best, or is there a part of your past that you're yearning to have the world get reacquainted with? What essential aspect of what makes you YOU…TODAY… is waiting to take on a larger role in your future? Whatever your answers, we hope you share them with the people you come across in your life. The other thing we've learned from this podcast is that you don't have to have known someone to GET to know them. We are so grateful for all our guests who've let Leslie – and you – get to know them a little better through hearing their stories.Although we're going on hiatus, don't forget you can find the full archive of all the interviews and bonus features, show notes, and transcripts at RoadsTakenShow.com.  Executive Producer/Host: Leslie Jennings RowleyMusic: Brian Burrows Find more episodes at https://roadstakenshow.com Email the show at RoadsTakenShow@gmail.com

Williams, Jr. discusses the first empirical estimate of the race-specific effects of larger police forces in the United States. Each additional police officer abates approximately 0.1 homicides. In per capita terms, effects are twice as large for Black versus white victims. At the same time, larger police forces make more arrests for low-level “quality-of-life” offenses, with effects that imply a disproportionate burden for Black Americans. Notably, cities with large Black populations do not share equally in the benefits of investments in police manpower. Our results provide novel empirical support for the popular narrative that Black communities are simultaneously over and under-policed. Interview by Dartmouth student Shawdi Mehrvarzan '22.

Guest Oliver Will was always good at math and when he got to college he figured he would parlay that into a science or engineering degree. While taking the mathematics prerequisites for a number of majors, he realized he liked the theoretical elegance of the math itself. And yet, he was interested in real-world applications, too. A course in bioethics introduced him to the idea of the computational work involved the human genome sequencing and the idea of bio-statistics. He applied to graduate programs straight from undergrad and got a PhD in applied mathematics.As other guests on Roads Taken have discussed, a tight job market for academic positions is complicated by factors such as timing, geography, and luck. Although he'd thought the life of professor would suit him, after a rather unfulfilling postdoctoral fellowship, Oliver decided that the business world might be better suited for his skills and expertise. Unfortunately, his first experience was with a start-up that ran out of its funding, so he made one more return to the academic world—halfway around the globe—only to discover industry was probably the better fit. He became a statistician for a marketing company and continued using both big picture thinking and his applied skills to tackle everyday realities at a number of companies in a variety of fields.While he got better at pivoting from his expected outcomes to the newer opportunities available to him in a business context,it was somewhat harder when the circumstances were personal. In this episode, find out from Oliver how sometimes sometimes envisioning a future and living into what's in front of you are two different things…on Roads Taken with Leslie Jennings Rowley. About This Episode's GuestOliver Will is has been a research scientist in advanced analytics for primary research at a number of companies, most recently Cerner Enviza, an Oracle company. He holds a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Southern California. He lives in Pennsylvania with his wife and their cats. Executive Producer/Host: Leslie Jennings RowleyMusic: Brian Burrows Find more episodes at https://roadstakenshow.com Email the show at RoadsTakenShow@gmail.com

Author and Dartmouth professor Jeff Sharlet has been reporting on the American right from a religious studies perspective for two decades. He talks with Brian Stelter about his forthcoming book, "The Undertow: Scenes From a Slow Civil War," and the blind spots that some members of the media have. He says it is important to understand the religious "lens" that many Americans see the world through. "If you don't have that lens, you're only telling part of the story," he says. Plus, Sharlet talks about Christian nationalism; Donald Trump's relationship with the religious right; the impact of the January 6 hearings; and how the rural-urban divide is "getting much starker."

Guest Brendan Doherty had entered college thinking he was a math and science person, was then drawn to government but his choice of major—geography—ultimately felt made for him when the government courses were all full. His post-college decision points, however, seemed to always weigh the balance between two weighty options. First he needed to decide whether he would stick with the favored idea of law school and not fully enjoy the work or choose a riskier unsure path. Then, when conflicting religious beliefs complicated his burgeoning relationship with a wonderful woman, he needed to decide whether they should break up or figure out a compromise. He weighed keeping a commitment to the Peace Corps with returning to a safer environment with loved ones and then whether to cut a west coast adventure short to move east or make a 5,000-mile trip to keep the California dream alive. Not always was the first choice the choice that stuck.In this episode, find out from Brendan how sometimes just making any choice shows you, ultimately, the way to the right path…on Roads Taken with Leslie Jennings Rowley. About This Episode's GuestBrendan Doherty is a Professor of Political Science at the United States Naval Academy.
