On this episode of The Report Card, Nat Malkus speaks with Brooks Bowden about her recent paper The Unintended Consequences of Academic Leniency, co-authored by Viviana Rodriguez and Zach Weingarten. Nat and Brooks discuss how grading policies influence student effort and engagement, whether academic leniency helps low ability students, why North Carolina's changes to its grading policies led to increased absenteeism, whether making grading policies stricter can ameliorate student achievement, whether increases in academic leniency in the wake of the pandemic are good for students, and more.Brooks Bowden is an associate professor at the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania and the Director of the Center for Benefit–Cost Studies of Education.Show Notes:The Unintended Consequences of Academic LeniencyLenient Grading Won't Help Struggling Students.

When to Ask for HelpI share with you another client story from one of our group coaching calls in The Success Society, which is our higher-level coaching group where we talk about all things outside of the application. Now, I am a firm believer that you don't need to come with a “problem” or something to troubleshoot every single week in order to participate in and benefit from our coaching sessions. Like I say to our Apply Yourself community members, you don't need to wait until you experience a problem to reach out and ask for support. When it comes to our coaching, we take a holistic approach because you shouldn't actually have to ask for help. It should be a well-rounded process that you engage in fully, freely, and on your own terms.Holistic Coaching, Asking for Help, and Making Good Choices in your AdvancementChatting with this client brought up a really important question: When do we ask for help? Asking for help often requires a serious analysis of where we are, where we want to be, and the gap between them. Here are some key points from this episode:If you're feeling unsure of your next steps, it's important to take a step back and visualize where you want to be in a productive way. In order to reach your goals, your current self needs to make choices that can, in truth, be uncomfortable. These are often the choices you would make when you look back in hindsight. Imagine yourself 10, 20, 30 years into the future, or even 1 year in. What choices would you make today to get you where you want to be faster, without stress, with more joy, support, encouragement, and community, and in a healthier and sustainable way? There doesn't always have to be a problem. It's important to learn how to ask for help and when to ask for help. And in order to ask for the right kind of help, you need the right people to be on the other end, listening to and supporting you.At Apply Yourself, we provide coaching for applications, for test prep, and for life in general, and we have programs that focus on each of those areas. Want help on applications? We have Mastering Academic Applications. Want to excel in your MCAT and LSAT test prep? We have Mastering Test Prep. Need support in different areas of your life?

We've all been there: put on the spot during a meeting and found ourselves tongue-tied. In this episode, we tackle the challenge of spontaneous communication head-on. I'm joined by Matt Abrahams, who is a Lecturer at Stanford University's Graduate School of Business and the host of the “Think Fast, Talk Smart,” which draws in millions of listeners per episode. His TEDx Talk has captivated a global audience, and his latest book is titled, “Think Faster, Talk Smarter: How to Speak Successfully When You're Put on the Spot.” Today, Matt shares his insights into preparing for those unscripted moments, managing speaking anxiety, and mastering the mindset shifts critical for effective communication. We'll cover practical strategies for nailing Q&A sessions and confidently handling challenging conversations. If you enjoy the show, please rate it on Spotify or iTunes. Your ratings help more people like you discover the podcast! Episode Highlights · How preparation paradoxically improves your ability to speak spontaneously · Making your message resonate and be memorable · Creating a personalized anxiety management plan to reduce speaking anxiety · A critical mindset shift that improves communication quality and effectiveness · Reframing errors as learning opportunities to improve communication skills · How improving our listening skills can make spontaneous speaking more effective · Mastering Q&A sessions by engaging with people who are opposed to your ideas · Methods for handling difficult questions in tricky scenarios Matt's view on the greatest unmet wellbeing need at work today “I think we saw with the pandemic, just how raw some people can be. It exposed that and put a light on it. And it's important that we respect it and that we connect with it. As a teacher, I see it in my students, I see it my colleagues. So, I believe all of us have to take a step back and remind ourselves that first and foremost, we're humans, we have challenges and issues, both in inside ourselves and in the relationships we have. And I think we need to spend more time respecting that in offering to help those who are struggling.” What “working with humans” means to Matt “To me, it is a reminder that communication is relational and about connection, not about transactions. We work with others, others who have their own existence, their own ideas, their own belief, and we need to remember that it's all about the relationship and the connection that we have and I think that is very powerful and very important.” Resources Follow: Matt on LinkedIn Visit: Matt's website Read: Think Faster, Talk Smarter: How to Speak Successfully When You're Put on the Spot For more episodes that give you fresh perspectives and actionable ideas for making working with other humans better for everyone, visit our website at https://en.peoplefocusconsulting.com/resources/podcast/ ©Michael Glazer

Michael J. Feuer is Dean of the Graduate School of Education and Human Development at George Washington University and the author of Can Schools Save Democracy? Civic Education and the Common Good. He joins host Mike Palmer in an insightful discussion about the role of education in addressing some of society's biggest challenges including threats to democracy, polarization and more. Feuer explains his perspective that schools need to be part of the solution by equipping students with the analytical skills to think critically about issues like the tension between individual rights and the common good. He advocates for more interdisciplinary approaches in teacher preparation programs to connect future educators with experts across fields like economics, political science, and moral philosophy. The goal is to help teachers gain a deeper understanding of concepts like the "tragedy of the commons" so they can spark productive classroom discussions to engage students on relevant topics. While schools can't save democracy alone, Feuer argues they have an important role to play through civic education focused less on imparting viewpoints and more on developing thoughtful participation and debate.

This week, yet another ‘mini' INDIGENA (the fast + furious version of MEDIA INDIGENA), with some world-wide words for our 333rd episode (!!!), recorded the evening of Sunday, November 12th. No doubt sub-consciously inspired by the recent 5-year(ish) anniversary of our deep discussion of the 2018 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report—which gave us 12 years to act decisively and radically on carbon emissions to keep life viable for humanity by capping the increase in average world temperatures at a max of 1.5 degrees Celsius—host/producer Rick Harp invited MI regulars Kim TallBear (professor in the University of Alberta Faculty of Native Studies) and Candis Callison (Associate Professor in the Institute for Critical Indigenous Studies and Graduate School of Journalism at UBC) to climb atop a cluster of climate stories, to discuss how petro-states like Canada are delivering on that 1.5°C mission.

Bruce Praet is a well-known name in law enforcement, especially across California. He co-founded a company called Lexipol that contracts with more than 95% of police departments in the state and offers its clients trainings and ready-made policies. In one of Praet's training webinars, posted online, he offers a piece of advice that policing experts have called inhumane. It's aimed at protecting officers and their departments from lawsuits. After police kill someone, they are supposed to notify the family. Praet advises officers to use that interaction as an opportunity. Instead of delivering the news of the death immediately, he suggests first asking about the person who was killed to get as much information as possible. Reporter Brian Howey started looking into this advice when he was with the Investigative Reporting Program at UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism. He found that officers have been using this tactic across California, and the information families disclosed before they knew their relative was killed affected their lawsuits later. In this hour, Howey interviews families that have been on the receiving end of this controversial policing tactic, explaining their experience and the lasting impact. Howey travels to Santa Ana, where he meets a City Council member leading an effort to end Lexipol's contract in his city. And in a parking lot near Fresno, Howey tracks down Praet and tries to interview him about the consequences of his advice.

"Within months, the business failed and I went through a dark, suicidal depression..." Matt Lesser has a story to share: "I grew up in a small, lake community in northeast Indiana. We moved there because my dad had an opportunity to buy into a wholesale oil distributorship.Growing up in a town of 700, living with a family business, and attending a small, Christian school (my graduating class had 7) gave me a very narrow, sheltered view of life. I quickly realized how sheltered my life had been!..."Additional areas discussed include:-regular retreats for him and his employees with no technology -powers of solitude and silence-getting reflective and planning inward-having a support circle-recognizing when you are getting drained -how journaling can change your lifeAfter college, I moved to Florida for a short while. Realizing that was not what I wanted, I moved back to Indiana, proposed to my elementary school sweetheart (we met in 3rd grade and dated from our Junior year of high school on), and were married in 1996. Thinking I would pursue a Master's, my career took an unexpected turn. Instead of resigning, which I attempted, my dad left...and turned the business over to me. Thinking I could do anything because I was 25, arrogant, and prideful, I was about to experience reality. Within months, the business failed and I went through a dark, suicidal depression. Nearly a year later, a new business was born from the ashes, and nearly 12 years later that business was sold. In 2021, I finally jumped "all in" into my own business, after being told by many whom I had worked with over the years that I needed to do this."Link to his episode on Writing with Authors: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5pBn7-N8aM&t=3sHave a question for a guest or host?

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Dr. Robert Kaplan live from Wollongong, Australia. A forensic psychiatrist, writer and historian, Dr. Kaplan is Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Wollongong's Graduate School of Medicine. Gus stumbled upon his research while investigating Michael Swango, a White convicted serial killer who murdered White and non-white people from Illinois to Africa. Mr. Swango is no anomaly, White medical serial workers have avoided detection and managed to kill hundreds of unsuspecting patients. Dr. Kaplan writes about this growing phenomenon called “clinicide”/Carer Assisted Serial Killing. He submits that this is a growing field of crime, and with an aging population around the planet, there could be a growing number of people at risk. The racial component of this cannot be overstated as most if not all of the murdering doctors and nurses are classified as White and non-white people, especially if they're classified as black, are often prohibited from practicing medicine. And White Women and White Men in White lab coats generally command supreme authority, respect, and deference. So it can be hard to question them - especially for non-white people with no medical expertise. We'll also discuss Dr. Kaplan's work on Dr. Aubery Levin, who used his medical skills to support apartheid South Africa and then absconded to Canada to avoid Madiba's regime and molest male patients. #LucyLetby #BlackMalePrivilege #TheCOWS14Years INVEST in The COWS – http://paypal.me/TheCOWS Cash App: https://cash.app/$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 605.313.5164 CODE: 564943#

Israeli tanks and troops that entered Gaza on Friday are now focusing on encircling Gaza City – the population hub of the northern part of the strip. This comes after Benjamin Netanyahu's announcement on Saturday that Israel had entered a “long and difficult” new stage of the war. He stopped short of calling this new phase an all-out invasion, but airstrikes have escalated along with an advancing ground incursion.This strategy could have further implications for the region, and Israel's allies in the West – including Canada – will be looking to figure out their parts in this ongoing war.Thomas Juneau is on the show to help us understand this next phase of the war and what it could mean geopolitically. He's an associate professor at the University of Ottawa's Graduate School of Public and International Affairs whose research focuses on the Middle East as well as Canadian foreign and defence policy.Questions?

Brad Stulberg researches, writes, and coaches health, well-being, and sustainable excellence. He is the bestselling author of The Practice of Groundedness, and co-author of Peak Performance. He also serves as the co-host of The Growth Equation podcast and is on faculty at the University of Michigan's Graduate School of Public Health. In his coaching practice, he works with executives, entrepreneurs, physicians, and athletes on their mental skills and overall well-being. In this episode of The Dad Edge, Larry interviews Brad Stulberg, author of "Master of Change". Brad shares his insights on navigating change and the paradox of trying to master it. He discusses his journey from economics and psychology to studying public health and becoming interested in what it means to thrive. Brad's book, "Peak Performance," focuses on sustainable ways to perform at one's best. Brad Stulberg then emphasizes the importance of embracing change for personal growth. It challenges the traditional notion of stability and highlights the concept of allostasis, which suggests that stability is achieved through change. He argues that change is not abnormal or something to be feared, but rather an integral part of life. From the moment we are born, we are constantly growing, evolving, and adapting to new circumstances. Change is an inevitable part of life. Yet, many of us fear change. We cling to the familiar, the comfortable, and the known. We resist the idea of stepping out of our comfort zones and embracing the unknown. As Brad and Larry argues, to fear change is to fear life itself. Change challenges individuals to adapt, problem-solve, and develop resilience. It pushes individuals out of their stagnant routines and encourages them to explore new possibilities. By embracing change, individuals can expand their comfort zones, learn new skills, and gain new perspectives. www.thedadedge.com/friday128 www.1stphorm.com/dadedge www.bradstulberg.com www.instagram.com/bradstulberg

I'm thrilled to share with you some highlights from my recent podcast episode where I had an engaging conversation with Patrick, a seasoned professor of commercial real estate finance and the founder of his own consultancy.The Hustle of Real Estate: Patrick's journey in the real estate business is nothing short of inspiring. With two decades of experience, he's seen it all - from mastering the income aspect of deals to understanding how to put debt and equity together. His story is a testament to the fact that every day in real estate is different and exciting, with new deals and opportunities constantly arising.The Power of Dry Powder: In our volatile real estate market, Patrick highlighted the importance of "dry powder" - capital that can help navigate through the ups and downs. He believes that his expertise and connections can be particularly beneficial in less sophisticated markets.The Potential for Change: We discussed the possibility of a massive market shift, similar to the 2007-2008 financial crisis. Patrick believes that distressed funds are actively looking for opportunities to buy non-performing loans, and there's a need for recapitalization due to the spike in interest rates.The Role of Risk and Big Data: Patrick shared his insights on how he incorporates statistical analysis and big data analytics into his work. He emphasized the importance of capturing tail risk and using tools like Monte Carlo simulations to make informed decisions.Niche Asset Classes: Patrick believes that niche asset classes such as data centers, student housing, and charter schools offer less volatility and a non-cyclical income stream. He's excited about the potential of infrastructure capital and its penetration into these esoteric asset classes.Consultancy Services: Patrick's consultancy, Nest and Associates, works with owner operators looking to scale their businesses and raise funds from institutions. He stressed the importance of scalability, geographic presence, continuity of the executive team, and a defined investment strategy in attracting capital.Apropos Podcast: Patrick's podcast, "Apropos," covers topics relevant to finance and the financial markets. He plans to invite guests to discuss data centers and diversity, equity, and inclusion in the industry.Research and Collaboration: Patrick is currently collaborating with CFA New York and conducting research at a university, exploring the relationship between the space market and the transaction market in commercial real estate.I hope these insights spark your curiosity and entice you to listen to the full podcast episode. It's filled with valuable lessons, ideas, and curiosities that I'm sure you'll find intriguing.Next Steps Share your thoughts with a review - https://www.thedealscout.com/reviews/ Let's connect on LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/joshuabrucewilson/ Subscribe and Watch on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBQN_Y3nhDGClfMxCSBDjOg

Over a distinguished 40-year career as an academician in finance, Darrell Duffie has made important contributions to our collective understanding of how markets work. Earning a PhD from Stanford in 1984, Darrell has taught finance there ever since and now serves as the Adams Distinguished Professor of Management and Professor of Finance at the Graduate School of Business. Along the way he has written several books, authored countless papers and provided guidance to policymakers who have sought his counsel in addressing complex regulatory questions.We review some of Darrell's research over the past 4 decades, starting with equilibrium models of asset pricing in the 80's, termstructure models in the 90's and work on default correlation post the GFC. We spend most of our time on his recent research on the US Treasury market, that risk-free asset class that recently appears anything but. Darrell shares some conclusions from analysis of the melt-down of the bond market in March of 2020 and the policy implications that result. First, he states that yield volatility explains a large proportion of the breakdown of liquidity in what should be the world's most liquid asset class. Higher vol and compromised liquidity generally go hand in hand. Darrell and colleagues show that the bond market freeze could further be traced to dealers reaching their capacity to warehouse risk, a factor that impacts liquidity in a highly non-linear manner.We shift to the policy recommendations that arise in light of his research. First, Darrell notes that a campaign of large-scale asset purchases is considerably more effective in combatting a volatility episode when dealer balance sheets are stretched as they were in March of 2020 than the market turbulence of 2022, when dealers had space to absorb more risk. He also points to a greater need for c
