In the coming months, Germany will have a new chancellor for the first time in 16 years. Following the country's recent elections, Angela Merkel, one of the world's longest serving democratically elected leaders, will step down. As she leaves behind a legacy of decisive action and an unrelenting moral compass, Merkel's retirement comes at a time when there is a great deal of uncertainty in the world, which stands in stark contrast to the guiding pillar of stability she has been for her countrymen over the past two decades. In The Chancellor, biographer Kati Marton takes an in-depth look into Merkel's success as a leader, uncovering the secrets of her political and diplomatic success, as well as the unique personal background that helped shape her into the strong, yet humble, leader she is known for being today. Kati Marton is an author and award-winning former correspondent for NPR and ABC News. She became a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist following her book, Enemies of the People: My Family's Journey to America. Marton has also written books on other topics of international affairs, such as True Believer: Stalin's American Spy, The Great Escape: Nine Jews Who Fled Hitler and Changed the World; The Polk Conspiracy, and A Death in Jerusalem. She holds a B.A. and an M.A. from George Washington University. . . Do you believe in the importance of international education and connections?

During this episode, Matt Venhuas discusses the Cognitive Security Proving Ground, which is an initiative he leads at the University of Maryland's Applied Research Laboratory for Intelligence and Security (ARLIS). After describing ARLIS' mission areas and how University Affiliated Research Centers fit into the larger United States national security ecosystem, Matt discusses various cognitive security topics--including the need for a Cognitive Security Proving Ground. His vision is a constellation of capabilities, ranges, and activities working in harmony to provide the best available reflection of human behavior and sociotechnical complexity for experimentation, testing, evaluation, and training to improve capabilities, enhance effectiveness, and reduce risk for operations in the information environment. Link to full show notes and resources https://information-professionals.org/episode/cognitive-crucible-episode-69 Guest Bio:  Professor Matt Venhaus currently serves as the Mission Area Lead for Cognitive Security and Operations in the Information Environment at the University of Maryland's Applied Research Laboratory for Intelligence and Security (ARLIS). His primary research interest is in modeling the socio-technical complexity of the modern information environment to support meaningful training in the human domain of competition and conflict. Professor Venhaus has dedicated his entire professional life to influencing human behavior to achieve U.S. national security objectives. From tribal villages in sub-Saharan Africa, across Europe, throughout the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia, he sought to influence the attitudes, perceptions, and ultimately the behaviors of foreign audiences. In each endeavor, Professor Venhaus found that successful national security-related influence combines an empathetic understanding of the drivers of human decision-making with an appreciation for the enabling advantages of technology.  Before joining ARLIS, Professor Venhaus was a Senior Advisor for Mission Integration and at the MITRE Corporation. He led, shaped, and managed MITRE's support to USCYBERCOM bydeveloping and overseeing the execution of cross-cutting technical strategies to increase MITRE's impact in advancing the effectiveness of cyber operations. He has a deep and abiding passion for the practical application of influence and persuasion in competition and conflict as technological advancements drive new realities in how people consume and process information.  Professor Venhaus served over 28 years in the U.S. Army, primarily in persuasive communications (PSYOP). He designed, implemented, and managed multi-media campaigns on four continents across the full spectrum of peace and armed conflict.

For the first time in more than a decade Republicans will hold top spots in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

President Biden had won the state by 10 points in the 2020 Presidential Election. So is Virginia a preview of the red wave that's to come as we approach the upcoming 2022 Midterms? Jared and FOX News Political Analyst Josh Kraushaar discuss. As Supreme Court Justices returned to the bench this week, they heard oral arguments from two of the most high profile cases: guns and abortions. Up first was the Texas abortion law that bans the procedure in most cases after six weeks of pregnancy, with no exceptions in the cases of rape or incest. Next was a New York State gun law and the requirements it puts on gun owners to carry a concealed weapon. FOX News Contributor and Law Professor at George Washington University, Jonathan Turley breaks down the two cases and explains why all eyes will be on newer Justices.

The topic of this episode is, "What is the Congressional Review Act?" My guest is https://regulatorystudies.columbian.gwu.edu/bridget-ce-dooling (Professor Bridget C. E. Dooling) of George Washington University's Regulatory Studies Center. She has a deep background in regulation. Previously, Bridget worked for the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Office of Management and Budget. She also has clerked for an administrative law judge and worked in the U.S. Department of Justice. Kevin Kosar: Welcome to Understanding Congress, a podcast about the first branch of government. Congress is a notoriously complex institution, and few Americans think well of it, but Congress is essential to our republic. It's a place where our pluralistic society is supposed to work out its differences and come to agreement about what our laws should be. And that is why we are here: to discuss our national legislature and to think about ways to upgrade it so it can better serve our nation. I'm your host, Kevin Kosar, and I'm a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, a think tank in Washington, DC. It is to Professor Dooling we turn to learn about the http://uscode.house.gov/view.xhtml?req=granuleid%3AUSC-prelim-title5-chapter8&saved=%7CKHRpdGxlOjUgc2VjdGlvbjo4MDEgZWRpdGlvbjpwcmVsaW0pIE9SIChncmFudWxlaWQ6VVNDLXByZWxpbS10aXRsZTUtc2VjdGlvbjgwMSk%3D%7CdHJlZXNvcnQ%3D%7C%7C0%7Cfalse%7Cprelim&edition=prelim (Congressional Review Act), a tool for Congress to abolish regulations. Welcome to the show. Bridget Dooling: Thank you so much. I'm glad to be here. Kevin Kosar: Before we get into the Congressional Review Act, or CRA, let's start with something basic. What are regulations, and why do they matter? Bridget Dooling: Regs are great, and studying them is even better. Regulations are everywhere. They shape our world, but not necessarily in obvious ways. Knowing about regulations is like having a decoder ring for why certain things are the way they are. Like, why do you need prescriptions for some things, but you can help yourself to whatever supplements like vitamins that you want? It's because there's a regulatory line there. You can't see it when you're in the drugstore, but it absolutely affects the way you live. Kevin Kosar: Yeah. Regulations really, to a degree, I guess they're specifications of laws, particular applications. Is that a fair characterization? Bridget Dooling: Yep. Kevin Kosar: Now, if listeners want to see these things, these regulations, where should they go? Where can they find a list or collection of regulations? Bridget Dooling: Yeah, there's a few ways. One is that you can look at legislation, because that's where Congress tells the agencies what they're allowed or required to do. And then you can also look at what the agencies themselves produce. So for rules that are in the process of being made, there's a website called https://www.regulations.gov/ (regulations.gov). That's a great place to start, so if you hear that a rulemaking is coming down the pike, that's a great place to go check its status and see if it's open for public comment, for example. So that's regulations.gov. And for rules that are already on the books, you'd want to look at something called the https://www.ecfr.gov/ (Code of Federal Regulations), which pulls all that regulatory text into one place so you can read it all in one spot. Kevin Kosar: Excellent. Now our listeners know. So let's turn to the Congressional Review Act. Congress enacted it in 1996. Democrats and Republicans alike voted for it. President Bill Clinton signed it into law. In most basic terms, what is the CRA? Bridget Dooling: The Congressional Review Act allows Congress to disapprove federal agency rules using fast track procedures, during a special window of time following the rule's issuance. And perhaps the most important of these special fast-track procedures is that resolutions of disapproval can't be...

This is a much-anticipated book, which is going to become the go-to resource for every reader interested in nationalism in Central Asia. Bringing together for the first time Laruelle's articles on Central Asian nationalism, the book offers an intriguing overview of 30 years of nation-building in the region, linking back the choices made in the different nationalising states to concepts and constructs of nationhood developed during the Soviet era. The first part of this very readable book looks comparatively at the nationalism processes as developed in the southern part of the region [Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan. Uzbekistan] while the second segment features a collection of Laruelle's writing on the many complexities associated with nation-building in Kazakhstan, Central Asia's multi-national state par excellence. Marlene Laruelle is Director of the Institute for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (IERES), Elliott School of International Affairs, The George Washington University.

Listed as one of the eating disorders; as a psychiatric diagnosis Symptoms include distorted body image along with restrictive eating/weight loss The brain plays tricks on the body, where there is a complete distortion of reality Scientists now can articulate that this is a brain-based illness, that the neurophysiological changes are different in those with anorexia however, this has not been translated into clinical care Caregivers and professionals need to focus on a more empathic collaborative treatment model   Early Warning Signs & Risk Factors Very high genetic component, whether it is a parent or an aunt/uncle One of the most dramatic, well-proven risk factors is going on a vegan/vegetarian diet in puberty, certainly pre-puberty Any change in diet is usually the onset Literature showing that a vegan diet in adolescence with a genetic vulnerability is a very high risk for an eating disorder, poorer outcomes, and a higher relapse rate The restricting of those (animal-based) foods, which are particularly high in nutrients such as zinc and vitamin B12, are critical for puberty and one of the core deficiencies in anorexia nervosa   Treatments Historically Have Been Ineffective Massive lack of proper training about eating disorders and nutrition for practitioners For anorexia nervosa, there are no approved medications So every practitioner is making an educated guess as to what would be helpful for medication and/or therapy Dr. Greenblatt's thesis is it's a brain-based illness due to malnutrition, and without that nutritional repletion, therapy is often ineffective High relapse rate especially since typically patients are released with no ongoing care Lack of treatment centers puts a large time, financial, and stress burden on families to have to travel further Insurance companies limit treatment The highest risk of suicide of any psychiatric illnesses Not a lot of research as to why, but Dr Greenblatt's theory is the relationship between depleted levels of essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) and brain function Low levels of those nutrients are associated with a higher risk of suicide    Proper Treatment and Prevention First, need to address the (chronic) malnutrition and genetic vulnerability as a first red flag as well as changes in diet in early adolescence All nutritional deficiencies of major nutrients affect brain function and brain distortion Forcing a patient to eat during in inpatient care to stabilize weight while not addressing a nutrient-dense diet is not an effective solution   Key Nutrients Needed for Recovery Zinc, especially during puberty Low zinc is related to loss of appetite and taste, poor digestion, depression, and sleep problems Other essential nutrients: B vitamins, amino acids, and fatty acids Treatment centers are not necessarily providing nutrient-dense foods or additional supplementation Magnesium is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in the U.S., and particularly in those with anxiety, mental health, sleep, or constipation Nutrient testing is not always helpful/accurately providing the full picture as most nutrients are found in multiple parts of the body, not just blood   Where to Start for Support Schedule a nutritional augmentation consultation Try in the fields of functional or integrative medicine as they are typically trained across multiple disciplines and are either well-versed in nutrition or work closely with nutritional professionals Early interventions with personalized care/therapy and dietitian are critical Psychotherapy, so that children and adolescents are feeling valued and heard Using food as a therapeutic approach along with targeted supplementation and nutrients; nutrition as being profoundly important in even some of these most severe clinical presentations. Consider any underlying medical contributors such as undiagnosed celiac, PANDAS, etc. Stay curious and keep asking good questions Genetic testing can be helpful   Answers to Anorexia Book: Answers to Anorexia An overview of the lack of a current effective model and a proposal around a nutritional repletion model Available on Amazon.com and jamesgreenblattmd.com For clinicians, therapists, nurse practitioners, and psychiatrists there is an educational platform (psychiatryredefined.org) with hundreds of hours of content for functional medicine for mental health and functional psychiatry where they can learn a model to dig deeper Connect with Dr. Nicole Beurkens on...

"China wasn't trying to hack the product per se. They were trying to use products in unanticipated ways to undermine trust in democracy and in the democratic system of government." Jacob Helberg is here, with his new book in hand The Wires of War: Technology and the Global Struggle for Power. China is on our minds lately. Are we friends? Enemies? Foes? Are we at peace? At war? Helberg posits we are not on the brink of a Cold War with China— we are in the midst of one. With American sovereignty hanging in the balance, how can ordinary citizens who are concerned do something?

Americans are being forced to choose between getting the COVID vaccine or losing their job and many are choosing to walk away from work. Some employers are being faced with lawsuits against vaccine mandates but so far the courts have struck down the challenges of mandates. Law Professor at George Washington University and Fox News Contributor, Jonathan Turley weighs in on the vaccine mandates in some states, why they're not getting far and if there are any exemptions that could possibly make a strong case against getting the vaccine. A new book has been released from the only national security advisor to witness all four years of the Trump administration, from the 2016 campaign trail to the end of President Trump's term in office. Former National Security Advisor to both President Trump and Vice President Pence, retired Lieutenant General Keith Kellogg joins to discuss his book, 'War By Other Means: A General in the Trump White House.' He walks us through his four years with the Trump administration and how he saw a different side of the former President than the one portrayed in the media and the way he encouraged a diversity of opinions within his circle. Gen. Kellogg also discusses how he saw events unfold during the January 6th Capitol riot, why U.S. involvement in Afghanistan had disastrous results and the issue of China acquiring hypersonic weapons before the U.S. Plus, commentary by FOX Nation host Tammy Bruce.
