In this episode of Food Safety Matters, we speak with Mike [2:52] about: His experience as Administrator of USDA's FSIS after the Jack in the Box coli outbreak of 1992–1993, including why the agency did not consider pathogenic bacteria to be an adulterant requiring regulation prior to the pivotal outbreak How Mike's time at FDA influenced his approach to his work at USDA, such as shifting cultural mindsets and implementing a preventive-based plan for reform in meat and poultry inspection USDA's challenges with getting industry to accept new standards for coli and Salmonella, which was in part overcome due to the efforts of forward-thinking advocates within industry like David Theno The way in which industry's concept of microbial testing standards and Hazards Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) requirements differed at the time of their regulatory introduction, and the role that difference played in industry's levels of acceptance Mike's perspective on the recent USDA declaration of Salmonella as an adulterant in breaded and stuffed raw chicken products, and what it may mean for the future of Salmonella regulation Clarification of what a pathogenic “adulterant” is to USDA, and how the agency regulates adulterated foods Positive cultural changes that have occurred over the last 30 years, such as industry's acceptance of accountability for prevention and the willingness to collaborate between regulators, industry, and the scientific community How USDA's efforts to reform meat and poultry inspection in the mid-1990s laid the groundwork for future food safety successes such as FSMA The positive significance of the recent focus on food safety culture, and why Mike believes it would be difficult to regulate the concept in the U.S. How the Jack in the Box coli outbreak gave political momentum to food safety regulation, as well as how the stories of the outbreak victims personally motivated Mike to sustain his involvement with food safety to this day, including serving as a board member of Stop Foodborne Illness.

What's Better Than Two Men on A High Scaffold? Andrew Ashur is Founder and CEO of Lucid Drone Technologies, a North Carolina based company that builds industrial spraying drones for labor intensive tasks. The company's goal is simple – provide customers with a safer, faster and smarter alternative to traditional spraying methods while reducing costs and adding top-line revenue. Lucid began in 2018 with the vision of retrofitting existing off-the-shelf drones to handle exterior soft-washing. After a significant investment of time and money, the founders learned that the drone they needed was unavailable in the marketplace. The right product and support required to be successful had to be designed and built from the ground up. That's where Lucid excels. Andrew manages the overall operations of Lucid, including product development, strategic partnerships, and investor relations. He is a prolific learner with a demonstrated track record for extreme productivity. Andrew graduated with a double major from Davidson College in just three years, while founding Lucid. In this episode of the Drone Radio Show, Andrew talks about Lucid Drone Technologies, it's revolutionary C1 Cleaning Drone and how it is disrupting the industrial cleaning industry by providing a solution that is much faster and safer than traditional cleaning methods.
Dean Weaver, EPC Stated Clerk, welcomes Michael Flake, pastor of Storyhill Church in Davidson, North Carolina. The two discuss Flake's church planting DNA in the EPC, including his childhood at then-church-plant Hope Church in Memphis, followed by involvement during his college years with EPC church planter Mike Moses at Lake Forest Church in Huntersville, N.C., and culminating after seminary by serving as Lake Forest's first church planting pastor at the Lake Forest Davidson campus which localized as Storyhill Church in December 2021. Flake describes how the EPC's vision of every local church being a parent, partner, or patron of church planting is embedded in Storyhill, including possibly planting churches in other college towns. Flake also discusses how he bridges the generation gap as a 38-year-old pastor with the large Davidson College student population that attends Storyhill, and their perspective as Christians in a culture that is increasingly antagonistic toward Christianity.

The war in Ukraine changed everything and certainly impacted the teaching of the Russian language. I decided to meet with colleagues and discuss the difficulties they faced in the spring semester and changes we can make before the beginning of the fall semester. How to discuss Russia's actions with our students? How can we keep motivating students? How to support them and ourselves emotionally? And what can we change in our teaching materials? We discussed this and many other things with Irina Kogel. Irina Kogel is a lecturer in Russian Studies at Davidson College. A heritage speaker of Russian from Belarus, she is interested in heritage speaker motivation, as well as the use of technology in language acquisition.

Food is central to the daily existence of Americans, whether we are growing it, shopping for it, preparing it, or consuming it. Dr. Joseph C. Ewoodzie, Jr. argues that, for many, food intersects with race and class to help form our identity as individuals. Ewoodzie is an associate professor of sociology and the Vann Professor of Racial Justice at Davidson College. He uses qualitative research to examine how marginalized populations in urban areas make sense of inequalities in their everyday lives and ethnographic methods to investigate how those same populations interpret their social selves and the boundaries that both constrain and enable them. Ewoodzie has used both music and food as a lens to understand the cultural dynamics of African American life in urban settings. His most recent book, “Getting Something to Eat in Jackson: Race, Class, and Food in the American South,” paints a vivid portrait of African American life in the urban south, using food to explore the complex interactions of race and class. His first book, “Break Beats in the Bronx: Revisiting Hip Hop's Early Years,” combines historical and sociological methods to examine symbolic boundaries and tell the creation story of hip hop. Ewoodzie was awarded the 2021 C. Wright Mills Award for “Getting Something to Eat in Jackson,” a distinction awarded annually by the Society for the Study of Social Problems for the book that “best exemplifies outstanding social science research and a great understanding of the individual and society.” See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Today's guest is Erin S. Lane. Erin is a writer, theologian, and someone other than a mother; which is also the title of her new book. Erin holds a bachelor's degree from Davidson College and a master's degree from Duke Divinity School, both with a focus on gender studies. And she is freaking amazing. In this episode we are decoupling a woman's purpose from her reproductive role. Any woman who even hints she is maybe questioning if she wants to have kids has heard some form of these cultural scripts we discuss in this epsiode. In Someone Other Than a Mother: Flipping the Scripts on a Woman's Purpose and Making Meaning Beyond Motherhood, Erin S. Lane asks if it is it possible to do something more meaningful than mothering?

On episode 26 of The Buddy Ruski Show, Justin interviews Mark Overbay.Mark's origins begin in Kingsport, Tennessee where his interest in food and nutrition started when his father was diagnosed with Type-2 Diabetes. He became the food guru of his family, learning about healthy eating habits and nagging his parents to try new ways of cooking to support his father's health. (2:03) In turn, Mark learned about the ups and downs of entrepreneurship through his parents -- his parents owned a jewelry store. (14:14)Mark attended Davidson College where he double majored in English Literature and Philosophy with a concentration in Film Studies. (19:19) His interest in storytelling ultimately lead to a career in journalism after graduated. It was during his time at Yes! Magazine in Seattle that Mark met a mentor who persuaded him to join the Peace Corp. (31:13)While volunteering in Zimbabwe, Mark desperately missed one of his favorite foods: peanut butter. After watching local farmers using peanuts for other types of foods, he took a shot at making his own homemade peanut butter. "Not to toot my own horn, but it was so delicious." (35:17)Eventually, Mark took a job working for Counter Culture coffee and moved to Durham. It was in his backyard in 2010 where Mark's craving for freshly-made peanut butter resurfaced. After remembering the peanut butter he made in Zimbabwe, Mark decided to take the leap and co-founded Big Spoon Roasters with his now-wife Megan. Big Spoon was a nickname Mark's father held because of the way he ate big spoonfuls of peanut butter right out of the jar (39:59)As always, thank you for listening.

As we head into the 2022 mid-term elections and further on into the 2024 presidential election, one of the hottest topics in political strategy is where will Latino voters fit into the equation. Historically, Democrats have done better among Latinos, but in 2020, former president Donald Trump improved his share among the group by 8 percent—a development that ought to signal to political observers that Latino voters are a complicated group, motivated by much more than concerns about immigration. In addition to a variety of ethnic differences, Latino Americans are starting to manifest some of the other differences that have previously been observed among White Americans. Joe Biden won 69 percent of college-degreed Latino voters, but his share dropped to 55 percent among those without a college degree. There also appears to be an emerging religious divide among Latinos with those who adhere to no religion or to Roman Catholicism being more likely to support Democrats and those who are Protestant more likely to support Republicans. In a 2020 survey by the Public Religion Research Institute (https://www.prri.org/spotlight/religion-divides-hispanic-opinion-in-the-u-s/), 57 percent of the Hispanic Protestant bloc said they approved of the job then-president Trump was doing while just 27 percent of Catholics agreed. Among non-religious Latinos, his approval rating was even lower–16 percent. With Hispanic Protestants—primarily evangelicals—growing at a rapid rate, what does that mean for the future of American politics? Joining us to discuss is Gerardo Martí, he's a professor of sociology at Davidson College and also the president-elect of the Association for the Sociology of Religion.

On this installment of the Orange Wave, Brad traces two intertwined histories. First, the Sun Belt Migration, which led to a massive westward population shift in the 1950s and 1960s and turned Orange County into the nation's hub of defense production. This led in turn into an evangelical wave in Southern California. Second, Brad examines the decline of the Mainline Protestant denominations during the same time period. The breaking of their cultural and political authority opened a space for the Religious Right to rise.

Joe Langley's story is the most remarkable of all the expatriates that I know - AfricanAmerican or otherwise! His love affair with the French language began when hefound his brother's copy of Saint Exupéry's Le Petit Prince at home. He liked the"look" of the French words and loved the illustrations. These inspired him to pursueart and the French language as life-long passions. He went on to spend a year in theDordogne region as an exchange student at the age of fifteen, and a year inMontpellier in the junior-year-abroad program at Davidson College. The FrenchMinistry of Foreign Affairs invited Joe to teach English to high school students inMontpellier upon his graduation from Davidson. He spent a year in this post, whichprovided him with the legal working papers that are so coveted by expatriates. Hewent on to work as an acrobatic rider and singer for the traveling circus Zingaro fortwo years.Subsequently, Joe enrolled at the Sorbonne to study French and American literature…and Romanian! He went on to work for L'Oréal Cosmetics, where he became adirector of the company's black hair care subsidiary, Goldys International. He traveledin this position as well, working for the company from 1990 to 1995. He was postedin Avignon in 1995 when he lost his vision....Josephs Gift is the name of the book of poetry that Joe began writing in 1997. Hedescribes it as a "creative last will and testament," one that he began when he did notknow that his blindness was temporary. Slowly, it has become part of a greater projectwhich incorporates his music as well as his art. He has converted poems into songsand songs into videos. To date, he has written and recorded roughly 350 songs and hascreated over 500 paintings. The project has evolved and matured into a YouTube site -Joseph Langley, and songs available os Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music etc. Art andMusic now represent Joe's full time occupations.Josephs Gift has also evolved into a project that helps others gain exposure for theirart, music, or whatever medium they find for self-expression.Joe is currently spending a lot of time in the studio working on or researching newsounds and melodies. Though many musical artists influence him, he is particularlyfond of Al Jarreau because of the diversity in Jarreau's music and "the variety oftextures that he can give to his voice, thus giving him a more important vocal range."Joe has also spent time on the radio. In October 2010, he participated in a show calledBlack Feeling on Radio Fréquence Paris Plurielle (http://www.rfpp.net/). He hadcalled his friend John Dossavi, who hosts the show at RFPP, to ask if tenorsaxophonist Chansse Evanns could publicize a concert that he was organizing inhonor of Lena Horne. Joe ended up interviewing Evanns on the air, whereby Dossaviasked Joe if he would be interested in doing regular interviews of artists, musicians,and others. The Universe of Joseph Langley was born! He continues to paint. He says that he paints in a "very fluid and spontaneous style,"and that his work is "somewhere between modern and pop art with a touch of'fauvisme' He calls it HapArt.Support the show
In the early 1960s, Orange County became the hub for both white evangelical Christianity and libertarian politics. It was the epicenter of the John Birch Society and the Goldwater campaign. This history is crucial for understanding the rise of the Religious Right throughout the 80s and beyond. It was from this soil that Reagan and his evangelical coalition took over the GOP. The racism, conspiracies, and extremism of 1960s libertarian evangelicals in Southern California has remained part of the GOP and the Religious Right from Goldwater to Reagan to the Tea Party and the presidency of Donald Trump.

Episode 107 Notes and Links to Dr. Benjamin Gilmer's Work On this episode of The Chills at Will Podcast, Pete welcomes Dr. Benjamin Gilmer, and the two discuss, among other topics, Dr.'s early days at the rural Mountain Area Health Education Center, his directly following Dr. Vince Gilmer, and the ways in which Dr. Benjamin Gilmer got to know Dr. Vince's story and generous medical work, and then Dr. Vince himself. The conversation includes discussion of the newly-released book, the neurological disease that Dr. Vince discovered he had, and the specific implications for his case and society's understanding and treatment of mental health's connection to incarceration. Dr. Benjamin Gilmer is a family physician and Associate Professor at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and Mountain Area Health Education Center's (MAHEC) Family Medicine Residency Program. He is an international Albert Schweitzer Fellow and attended Davidson College followed by medical studies at the Sorbonne in Paris, France and East Carolina University. As the Medical Director for MAHEC's Rural Health Initiative and Rural Fellowship, he is passionate about advocating for global and rural health disparities. He has worked extensively in Central and South America and West Africa. Benjamin is committed to advancing medical education, point of care ultrasound, interprofessional collaboration and inspiring students to pursue rural health. His advocacy work currently focuses on bringing media attention to the social injustice of mass incarceration. His book, The Other Dr. Gilmer (Ballantine/Penguin Random House) and feature film project (Concordia Films) both highlight the injustice of mass incarceration of people with mental illness. The book is out as of March 1! Both projects are based on a 2013 This American Life podcast (Dr. Gilmer and Mr. Hyde), a collaboration between Benjamin and Sarah Koenig (“Serial”) which has had more than 10 million listeners. A former neurobiologist turned rural family doctor, Dr. Gilmer has lectured across the country about medical ethics, global and rural health, bias in medicine, and the intersection of medicine and social justice.
