A lot has happened since the attack on our Capitol two years ago. We’ve had congressional hearings, impeachments, investigations. And through it all the country has remained deeply polarized. In the past 40 years, the United States has polarized a lot faster than other wealthy democracies like Canada or Germany. Why is the U.S. so different? “Right now, our [political] system makes it extremely difficult to break out of this kind of rigid binary, the two-party system that we have,” said Jennifer McCoy, a political science professor at Georgia State University. On the show today, McCoy breaks down the state of our democracy post-Jan. 6, why the U.S. can’t seem to bridge its extreme political divide and what that could mean for the health of our economy and our democracy. Plus, some signs that all hope is not lost. In the News Fix, we’ll go further into the far-right insurrection in Brazil over the weekend. Supporters of former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro stormed the country’s main government buildings in a strikingly similar fashion to the Jan. 6 attacks on the U.S. Capitol. We’ll discuss what connects the two and what kind of influence the U.S. may have had in Brazil. Later, we’ll hear from a listener about keeping New Year’s resolutions, and a writer shares how her own research proved her wrong about creating lasting habits.

She holds a dual-title Ph.D. from The Pennsylvania State University in Educational Theory and Policy and Comparative International Education. Brezicha's research interests focus on how education supports individuals' abilities to equitably participate in the democratic processes at both the local and national levels. Her research considers domestic and international contexts. Specifically, she has studied how immigrant students' experiences of in/exclusion in their schools has shaped their knowledge, attitudes, habits and dispositions towards the political process in the U.S. and Canada. She has also examined how teachers, educational leaders and school boards have facilitated educational opportunities for diverse student populations. She has presented her work at conferences such as American Educational Research Association annual meeting, University Council for Educational Administration Convention and Comparative and International Education Society Conference. Before pursuing her doctorate, Brezicha taught kindergarten through fifth-grade special education students in New York City. She holds a Masters of Arts in Politics and Education from Teachers College, Columbia University and a Masters of Science in Urban Education from Mercy College.​ Chandler Miranda, Ph.D. Professor Chandler Miranda is an urban ethnographer and education scholar who studies the educational experiences of recently arrived immigrant youth in urban public schools. Her research offers a hopeful look at uncommon schools while critiquing U.S. education policies rooted in ideologies of monolingualism, white supremacy, and xenophobia.  Miranda's work investigating teacher rhetoric following the 2016 presidential election is published in Anthropology & Education Quarterly (2017) and two co-authored articles that examine the experiences of immigrant students and their families in adverse political climates appear in Harvard Educational Review (2019 and 2021). In 2020, Leadership and Policy in Schools published “Segregation or Sanctuary,” in which Professor Miranda and her colleague argue for the possibilities of counterpublics for immigrant students. In 2022, Equity & Excellence in Education published a cross-case analysis comparing immigrant youth experiences of belonging in urban and rural schools. She has presented this research at the American Educational Research Association, the University Council for Educational Administration, and the American Anthropological Association. Her collaborative work has allowed her to publish critical case studies to look across time, place, and population to advance the field of immigrant education. Miranda's teaching experience spans high school to graduate courses.  She taught 9th-12th grade science for seven years in three different schools for English learners in the U.S and Colombia before pursuing a Ph.D.  She taught pre-service teachers at Queens College before accepting her current position at Barnard.  Show Highlights Immigrant-origin youth New Americans A sense of belonging Othering vs. Belonging Sense of belonging missteps Strategies for creating a sense of belonging for immigrant students Connect with Kristina and Chandler Kristina's Faculty Page Chandler's Faculty Page Actions Speak Louder Than Words: Examining School Practices That Support Immigrant Students' Feelings of Belonging Additional Resources Amplifying Student Voices January 19-21 Book Dr. Eakins Watch The Art of Advocacy Show Learn more about our Student Affinity Groups Free Course on Implicit Bias 20 Diversity Equity and Inclusion Activities FREE AUDIO COURSE: Race, Advocacy, and Social Justice Studies

Powder Springs man was sentenced to 12 years for a 2018 robbery

 Powder Springs man found guilty in a 2018 armed robbery in Cobb was sentenced to at least 12 years in prison on Tuesday. Romero Lindley received a 20-year sentence with 12 to be served in custody. Lindley was found guilty of two counts of armed robbery and one count of criminal attempt to commit a felony on Dec. 9 of last year. Lindley's charges stemmed from a home invasion incident on June 5, 2018, when Cobb police were dispatched to an armed robbery in progress at an apartment located in Marietta. A neighbor said at the time that four armed men entered the apartment. During an investigation into the incident, three victims and the neighbor told the officers that two of the men drove away prior to police arrival, while the other two fled through the woods toward a church parking lot, prosecutors said. Officers found Lindley hiding in bushes near the apartment following a K-9 tracking. He was found with a black ski mask and black sweatpants, which contained one of the victim's necklaces, per prosecutors. The ski mask, found within arm's reach of Lindley, was sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for DNA matching, and found to contain Lindley's saliva. In Lindley's arrest warrant from 2018, he was accused of taking a laptop, a Louis Vuitton travel bag and approximately $300 from the residence. Prosecutors said one victim testified at trial and stated that Lindley “put a gun to [his] forehead and took the necklace right off [his] neck.” Lindley was arrested again last May, accused in an arrest warrant of jumping bail by fleeing to South Carolina after he failed to appear in Cobb Superior Court on the armed robbery charges. In 2019, Lindley's co-defendant Marcellis Richardson pleaded guilty to charges related to the incident. Another co-defendant, Donquail Williams, pleaded guilty to charges in 2021. Democrats Nichelle Davis and Becky Sayler were sworn in as the two newest members of the Cobb County Board of Education on Thursday. Sayler, who previously taught English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) in Cobb and now teaches preschool, represents Post 2. She replaces Democrat Dr. Jaha Howard, who did not seek reelection after a single term in order to run for state school superintendent, a race he lost. Sayler won 68.6% of the vote in the November general election to Republican Stephen George, Jr.'s 31.4%. Davis, meanwhile, was a Teach for America teacher before becoming a staffer at the education nonprofit Achieve Atlanta, and represents Post 6. She replaces Democrat Charisse Davis, who decided against running for reelection after serving one term. Sayler was sworn in by Cobb State Court Judge Ashley Palmer, while Davis was sworn in by Cobb Superior Court Judge Kellie Hill. Sayler told the MDJ two of her priorities on the board will be expanding pre-K and revising a policy passed in July that paved the way for armed, non-police security personnel at schools, which was billed as a way to improve safety in case of a mass shooting. Sayler added that, as a former ESOL teacher, she is passionate about the district's dual-language immersion program, which enables students to develop literacy skills in English and a foreign language at the same time. Davis said she will prioritize “building relationships” as she begins her term on the board. At their first meeting, Sayler and Davis got a taste of the partisan divide on the board, with party-line votes leading to the election of the new board chair, Republican Brad Wheeler, and vice chair, Republican David Banks. A vote on the board meeting calendar also passed 4-3, with the Republican members in favor and Democrats opposed. The discussion for instant replay at the high school state championship football games will begin in earnest Monday. It is one of the items that will be talked about at the Georgia High School Association Board of Trustees' meeting in Thomaston. During a news conference last month to announce that the GHSA's football state championships would be moved to Mercedes-Benz Stadium, executive director Robin Hines said the issue of replay would be looked into. The topic came into the forefront following the Class AAA title game between Sandy Creek and Cedar Grove. A touchdown was allowed to stand despite the Georgia Public Broadcasting television replay showing that the Sandy Creek ball-carrier appeared to be tackled at the 1-yard line. Sandy Creek went on to win the game 21-17. With playing the title games in an NFL stadium, it gives the GHSA an opportunity to potentially utilize its system to make sure calls are correctly made in the biggest games of the year. Hines also said he hopes he would be able to use the games in August's season-opening Corky Kell Classic — also at Mercedes-Benz Stadium — as a trial for the state championships. Another item that will be discussed by the GHSA Board of Trustees is a motion brought forth by the Fulton County School System to do away with the minimum seating requirements for schools to host state semifinal football playoff games. This year, three state semifinal games involving Fulton County schools had to be moved to neutral sites because the host schools' stadium capacities did not meet the GHSA's minimum standard of 6,000. Milton, whose stadium seats 3,000, was set to host Mill Creek in one Class AAAAAAA semifinal. After numerous discussions of options, which included the possibility of Mill Creek agreeing to waive the seating requirement or moving the band seating into the end zone to open up additional seating space, the game was played at Lakewood Stadium in Atlanta, with a 5 p.m. scheduled start. It became the first game of a semifinal doubleheader, which was followed by Hughes, another Fulton County school that could not fulfill the GHSA seating requirement, facing Rome at 8 p.m. The other Class AAAAAAA semifinal between Roswell and Gainesville was moved to McEachern's Walter Cantrell Stadium. Ethan Bourdon became the first child to ride Kennesaw's brand-new swing at Swift-Cantrell Park, one that allows kids with disabilities to get in on the fun. Bourdon's mother, Shawna Grimes, told the MDJ this is “huge” for Bourdon, who is wheelchair-bound with a rare genetic disorder, MeCP2 Duplication Syndrome. Mayor Derek Easterling said the swing's ribbon-cutting was the culmination of a five-year effort by the city to transform the park, located on Old Highway 41 across from Kennesaw Elementary School, into one that is inclusive of all children. According to the city, the park is home to one of the largest inclusive playgrounds in the country. It includes 40 feet of shade, wheelchair accessible ramps that lead to a ropes tower, sensory stations, an eight-person, wheelchair-accessible, swaying structure, a slide and the new swing. About $450,000 from the city's 2016 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax projects was put toward upgrading the 18,500-square-foot park with features that would make it accessible for all under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Easterling said Kennesaw Councilman Pat Ferris had first lobbied for the inclusive swing after the idea for making the park inclusive of those with disabilities came up about five years ago. The swing, which was the final touch on the park's upgrades, came together thanks to Ferris and Kennesaw resident Ann Pratt, who is active in the North Cobb Civitan and was recognized by the city in June 2022 for her leadership. The swing was made possible by a grant from T-Mobile, created to fund improvement projects for small towns across the U.S. Kennesaw received a grant of roughly $47,000 to implement the swing. Former Hillgrove point guard Jeremiah Wilkinson committed this week to play his college basketball at Mississippi State. Wilkinson, a 6-foot, 175-pound junior from Powder Springs who now plays at The Skill Factory, a basketball developmental organization in Atlanta, posted his decision on social media Wednesday. Wilkinson was the first commitment to Mississippi State from the class of 2024. The three-star recruit selected the Bulldogs over a number of other Division I programs, including Georgia State, Florida, Mississippi, Butler, Murry State, Rice and Saint Louis, among others. He was also garnering interest from interest from Marquette, Loyola-Chicago and Providence. Wilkinson is averaging 14.3 points, 3.1 assists and 3.1 rebounds a game this season against similar basketball prep programs. Last year, he helped lead Hillgrove to a 23-4 record, averaging a team-high 16.8 points per game to go with 4.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists. Jordan Ridley is ready to hit the ground running as one of newest members to represent Cobb and Cherokee counties in the Georgia House. Ridley is “super great guy,” according to Cobb GOP Chair Salleigh Grubbs. Ridley, 30, was elected to represent House District 22 in November with 14,685 votes, or 61.5%, to Democrat Stacee Hill's 9,190 votes, or 38.5%. Ridley won 52.4% of the vote in Cobb. Ridley replaces Wes Cantrell, a Republican from Woodstock, who decided not to seek reelection after eight years under the Gold Dome. Before the 2020 redistricting cycle, House District 22 included eastern Cherokee County and a slice of southwest Forsyth County. Under the redrawn legislative map, Ridley will represent southwest Cherokee County and a sliver of north Cobb. A Cherokee County native, Ridley went to Etowah High School before attending Georgia State University, where he graduated with a bachelor's degree in public policy. Previously, Ridley served as the chair of the Cherokee County Republican Party from 2021 to 2022. Before that, he was a legislative aide for state Representative Charlice Byrd, a Republican from Woodstock, who represents House District 20. Ridley said he looks forward to leveraging the connections he established while working for Byrd in the General Assembly. Ridley worked on a wide range of issues as Byrd's aide, and he said appropriations is his biggest interest entering the 2022 session. That said, Ridley is looking to take advantage of other work experience in his new role. On his preference sheet for committee assignments, he listed the Game, Fish, and Parks Committee — Ridley was a park ranger for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and worked for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. #CobbCounty #Georgia #LocalNews      -            -            -            -            -            The Marietta Daily Journal Podcast is local news for Marietta, Kennesaw, Smyrna, and all of Cobb County.             Subscribe today, so you don't miss an episode! MDJOnline            Register Here for your essential digital news.            https://www.chattahoocheetech.edu/  https://cuofga.org/ https://www.esogrepair.com/ https://www.drakerealty.com/           Find additional episodes of the MDJ Podcast here.             This Podcast was produced and published for the Marietta Daily Journal and MDJ Online by BG Ad Group   For more information be sure to visit https://www.bgpodcastnetwork.com              See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Hello, Lit listeners. If you were one of those high school kids who spent hours holed up in your bedroom spinning your favorite albums on your turntable at ear-bleeding volume until your mama hollered at you to turn off that racket and take out the trash, and dreaming of blowing your one-horse town to become a rock star, this is the episode for you. Peter McDade is here to talk about his novel ‘The Weight of Sound', about aspiring rock musician Spider Webb, who at 18 announces to his parents that he will skip high school graduation and move to Athens, Georgia, to launch his career in the birthplace of R.E.M. and the B-52s. Through rotating points of view and covering a span of over twenty years, the book traces the ways Spider and his music affect the people in his life: family, fellow musicians, girlfriends, fans, roadies, and music industry lackeys.As drummer for the rock band Uncle Green, Peter McDade spent fifteen years traveling the highways of America in a series of Ford vans. While the band searched for fame and a safe place to eat before a gig, he began writing short stories and novels. Uncle Green went into semi-retirement after four labels, seven records, and one name change; Peter went to Georgia State University and majored in History and English, eventually earning an MA in History. His first novel, ‘The Weight of Sound', was published by Wampus Multimedia in 2017 and won the Georgia Author of the Year Award for best debut. ‘Songs By Honeybird', also published by Wampus Multimedia, was released in 2022. Both books have soundtracks of original songs.Given Peter's cred as both writer and musician, he's doing double duty as both author and music guru in this episode. EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS:What Peter would ask Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham if he couldPeter's Jimmy Page encounterSeeing Prince in concert and Peter's blog on PrinceThe origin of what became the novel ‘The Weight of Sound' and the soundtrack that accompanies itThe time one of Peter's students outted him in class as a former member of Uncle Green The appeal of discovering lost or forgotten albumsPoking fun at drummers in the novel while also emphasizing the importance of the drummer in a bandWhat makes a drummer great and why John Bonham, Ringo Starr, and Charlie Watts are examples of great drummersWords of wisdom about being in a band from Spider (character from ‘The Weight of Sound')And words of wisdom about being a band's road manager from another character in ‘The Weight of Sound'Life on the road for an up-and-coming band like Monkeyhole in ‘The Weight of Sound' but also Peter's band in the 1990s, Uncle GreenPeter and I play a game of “Only Pick One,” a road game Monkeyhole plays in the novelWhy Freddie Mercury is a godWhat I learned about the music business from ‘The Weight of Sound' and Peter's experience as part of Uncle Green and how the business is different nowPeter on making the books he wanted to make and his idea of success MUSIC IN THE EPISODE IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE:No copyright indie rock background music“Over and Over” by Fleetwood Mac“My Name is Prince” by Prince & The New Power Generation“I Don't Wanna Know About It” by Uncle Green“Guilty Party” by Uncle Green“See No Evil” by Television“Gardenia” from ‘The Weight of Sound' soundtrack“Pay Me Now” from ‘The Weight of Sound' soundtrack“She Said She Said” by The Beatles“Drive Into the Sky” from ‘The Weight of Sound' soundtrack“Change Myself” from ‘The Weight of Sound' soundtrack“Doin' Fine” from ‘The Weight of Sound' soundtrack LINKS: Peter McDade's website: www.peterjmcdade.comPeter's blog on Prince: www.peterjmcdade.com/?page_id=52Peter on Twitter, @PeterJMcDade‘The Weight of Sound' soundtrack on Bandcamp: https://wampusretrospectives.bandcamp.com/album/the-weight-of-sound-original-soundtrack Christy Alexander Hallberg's website: https://www.christyalexanderhallberg.com/Christy Alexander Hallberg on Twitter, @ChristyHallbergChristy Alexander Hallberg on Instagram, @christyhallbergChristy Alexander Hallberg's YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfSnRmlL5moSQYi6EjSvqag

The race that will decide the final balance of power in the Senate will be decided in a matter of days. The contest in Georgia between incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Hershel Walker won't determine who controls the Senate since Democrats have already accomplished that, but it will determine how easily they can move forward with President Joe Biden's executive and judicial appointments. That will significantly impact gun policy for the next two years. So, we've got Georgia State University professor Timothy Lytton on the show to talk about where the race is headed. Professor Lytton gives expert on-the-ground insight into how gun politics are affecting the race. He argues that gun policy is continually a major issue in the increasingly-purple state. And he says that while guns are unlikely to be a top issue in the campaign, they may be a decisive one for turning out votes. That's why it makes sense that the NRA is dumping millions of dollars into the race. It's also why the relative absence of the major gun-control groups is so surprising. But Lytton says they may still be contributing in other ways that aren't captured by Federal Elections Committee filings. We also go over Governor Brian Kemp's (R.) win over Democrat Stacey Abrams. Lytton said gun policy featured even more heavily in that race due to Kemp's successful push for permitless gun-carry earlier this year. But he's not so sure another big push to loosen the state's gun laws will be coming in the wake of Kemp's win. Plus, Contributing Writer Jake Fogelman and I discuss new polling that shows the Supreme Court's latest Second Amendment decision is popular. Special Guest: Timothy Lytton.
