Cartel Deals. Helicopter Surveillance. Weed Homesteaders. Artists. Outlaws. It all started with growing weed in Humboldt. Tommy's relationship with cannabis began at 15 years old. He would plant seeds along bridges and places like the Museum of Modern Art. Eventually, the 60s would lead to a time where Tommy would receive a “life in prison” sentence for smoking a joint. Luckily, the sentence was reduced to 90 days, which encouraged him to ignore the system and instead follow his interests. Eventually, Karen and Tommy would relocate to California after a brief stint in Mexico, allowing them the opportunity to live self-sufficiently while also allowing Tommy the ability to develop as an artist. A Native American would teach them to live off the land, eventually allowing the Hesslers to build their own house and grow their own food. Eventually, their interest would expand to growing cannabis, earning them the title of “original outlaw growers” as well as helping to found the cannabis culture in California. https://hcga.co/ Subscribe to our Newsletter! https://findingfounders.co/subscribe Website: findingfounders.co Follow Sam: https://www.instagram.com/samueldonner/ Follow Finding Founders IG: https://www.instagram.com/findingfounderspodcast/

Annemieke Bosman praat met schrijver Alexander Nieuwenhuis over zijn debuutroman Winterthur.  De verteller van Winterthur is naar Zwitserland gekomen om de geschiedenis van de Club van Rome te onderzoeken. Als hij tijdens een wandeling in het Eschenbergwald Antonin ontmoet, raakt de verteller door hem en zijn levenswijze geïntrigeerd. Antonin leidt een vrij zweversbestaan in een hut bij Winterthur. Hij jaagt en verzamelt in het bos en haalt af en toe iets uit de prullenbak bij de supermarkt. Ooit, vertelt Antonin, reisde hij de beroemde Duitse wetenschapper Alexander von Humboldt achterna door Latijns-Amerika. Hij heeft er allerlei wonderlijke ontmoetingen gehad en de geschiedenis van het werelddeel beter leren kennen. Gaandeweg blijkt dat het onderzoek naar de Club van Rome, die in 1972 veel van de problemen van de huidige eeuw voorzag, en het verhaal van Antonin meer met elkaar gemeen hebben dan op het eerste gezicht het geval lijkt. In Winterthur combineert Alexander Nieuwenhuis op vanzelfsprekende wijze de grote geschiedenis met het persoonlijke: het verdwijnen van gletsjers, de geschiedenis van inheems Latijns-Amerika, de onderzoekingen van Humboldt, de uitputting van onze grondstoffen – het zijn maar enkele onderwerpen die hij aanstipt in zijn ongedwongen verhaal over een Nederlandse onderzoeker en een Zwitsers natuurmens. Alexander Nieuwenhuis (1984) is journalist, essayist en wildernisgids. Hij studeerde aan het Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerpen. In 2014 begon hij de Intuïtieve Encyclopedie en hij publiceerde in de Nederlandse Boekengids over Menno ter Braak en de Club van Rome.

Urchin predators converge on Mendocino beach

June 20, 2022 — The first annual urchinfest took place this weekend, with opportunities to learn about urchins and their environment, and to eat them raw on the beach at Van Damme State Park in Little River. A woman named Juanita described the flavor as “someone sweet and buttery. It just slides down really easily. Maybe it's a softer texture than raw fish, but I love it.” She had just sampled some of the red urchin uni harvested by Greg Fonts, a freediver and spear fisherman who was wearing a shirt that said “Meateater” as he cracked into the spiny creatures. About 120 people showed up on Saturday morning to watch the demonstration, hear about the urchin, and have a chance at a taste. Not that there's much to eat out of the spiny purple shell. A mysterious illness has killed off most of the sunflower sea stars, which were the urchins' main predator. The purple urchin have overpopulated and devoured the kelp, and now they hang out in a dormant malnourished state. Unlike the red urchin, the purple urchin have no marketable value. Joshua Russo is president of the Watermen's Alliance, a recreational divers association that's part of an effort to remove the urchins from some small areas. The idea is to create a few refugia for kelp so it can re-seed itself if ocean conditions start to balance out again. In 2019, the recreational limit for purple urchin was doubled from the previous year's limit, to forty gallons per diver in Mendocino, Sonoma, and Humboldt counties. And in Caspar Cove, there is no recreational limit and divers are allowed to crush the urchins in the water. “What we're doing is under a scientific collection permit,” Russo explained. “Part of the project is to see if divers will voluntarily report their activity. Reef Check (a non-profit that trains citizen scientists to collect data on California's kelp forest ecosystems) has a website set up where divers can report their activity. It basically asks how many you think you culled in a dive, how many people were with you, how many dives you made, were you scuba or free-diving…it's not a legal requirement, but we are hoping that everyone will report, because if people are doing it and not reporting, the department (California Department of Fish and Wildlife) will let the regulation expire. Part of the program is to see if people will voluntarily provide that information so we can use it to prove that what we're doing is effective and it doesn't harm anything.” The purple urchin has another missing predator, in addition to the sunflower sea star. The otter was hunted out of the area by fur trappers in the 19th century. Russo says there are several shortcomings to any plan to reintroduce the otter to clear out the purple urchin. “The problem with that is these urchin are void of much material, so even if they were full, there's a study that shows that otters are taught what to eat by their parents. So if you brought an otter up here that was not shown how to eat urchin, it wouldn't even see them as a food source. So you would have to bring the right otters up here, and very quickly, they would open up a few urchin and learn there was nothing in them, so very quickly, they would move right over to anything else. Abalone, crab, anything they could get their hands on.” Warm ocean conditions from 2014-2019 didn't help the kelp at all. In the past couple of years, the ocean has been cooling off a little, and the kelp is showing some signs of recovery, but Tristin McHugh, the kelp project director with the Nature Conservancy, says it's still historically low. There is some money available for studies like the one Russo is involved in. Starting in 2020, Reef Check received a half-million dollar grant from the Ocean Protection Council to work with the Department of Fish and Wildlife and a variety of non-profits and commercial fishermen to figure out how to reduce urchin to what McHugh calls, “this magical threshold value that would potentially facilitate kelp growth.” That is about two urchin of any species per square meter. The challenge, McHugh says, “is trying to understand what to do when red urchin are also grazers, but also have commercial uses, as opposed to the purple urchin at this point.” Commercial divers are effective at culling urchin, but unlikely to do so without grants or other economic incentives. “What other tools for restoration can we test on top of that?” McHugh asked. “So one thing we are starting here in 2022 is evaluating urchin traps at Noyo Harbor, with hand harvesting of urchin, and we're also looking at Albion, with Moss Landing Marine Labs, looking at out-planting kelp in addition to hand harvest.” There was a promising sighting of a sunflower sea star in Mendocino last year, but for now, the known remnant populations of the once-mighty predator are in British Columbia and Alaska. “Typically, sunflower stars are pretty amazing predators,” McHugh said. “We know that they eat young purple urchin, or sometimes even adult purple urchin. We also know they eat snails, sometimes other stars. I've seen them eat fish underwater, I've seen them eat anemones, oddly enough. Back when I first started diving, I remember seeing them just cruise on the bottom of the ocean so fast, just nailing everything in its way.” As for the cause of the disease that has devastated them, “That's still a mystery. We're working right now to figure out what that is. Because it's still in the system.”

Two of Iowa football's greatest are on this year's college hall of fame ballot. OT Robert Gallery and Tight End Dallas Clark are among 80 players and 9 coaches nominated by the National Football Foundation. Voting concludes the end of June and we'll know who's in this years class the end of December.Both Gallery and Clark were consensus All Americans from small town Iowa. Both were highly coveted 1st round Nfl draft picks, Gallery #2 over-all by the Oakland Raiders. Clark was chosen with the 24th selection by the Indianapolis Colts. Born in Sioux Falls and growing up in Livermore in Northern, Iowa, population 380, Dallas Clark would wear his Incredible Hulk pajama's most of the day if allowed. Folks in Humboldt county had no idea then that Clark would grow into the Nfl's version of the short tempered Dr. Bruce Banner. Clark played a mad blocker and pass catcher at Iowa for a couple years and then for 11 seasons as QB Payton Manning's main target, winning a Super Bowl along the way. While Dallas Clark loved Marvel comics super hero's he settled for a Rudy Ruettiger role. Rudy was turned down three times by Notre Dame before he was allowed to walk on, Dallas Clark arrived in Iowa City in 1999 wide eyed and with out a scholarship offer but determined to work his way into a Hawkeye uniform. The rest is material that books and movies are made of. Dallas Clark joins us on this week's Fight for Iowa podcast.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Marijuana Outlaw. Smuggler. Draft Dodger. Commune Founder. Hippie Entrepreneur. Revolutionary. Protector of the Forest. At every opportunity Douglas Fir goes against the system. This philosophy, this way of moving through the world started with the war in Vietnam. Douglas was so opposed to the war that he gave himself two choices: become a revolutionary against the war, or remove himself from the political scene and move somewhere remote. Douglas chose the latter. After hitchhiking around the country and even traveling to South America, Douglas settled down with some friends and started a commune in Humboldt, California. The commune began to really develop when the residents discovered that growing and selling marijuana was a good – though illegal – source of income. The money made off of the marijuana was used to build houses, roads, and eventually an infrastructure for the community. Once the war on drugs began, the peaceful pot-growers stood up for their community against the federal government. https://hcga.co/ Subscribe to our Newsletter! https://findingfounders.co/subscribe Website: findingfounders.co Follow Sam: https://www.instagram.com/samueldonner/ Follow Finding Founders IG: https://www.instagram.com/findingfounderspodcast/

Op 4 juni 1872, overleed Johan Rudolf Thorbecke. 150 jaar geleden, maar zijn naam klinkt nog dagelijks in bestuurlijk Nederland in discussies over grondrechten, vrijheden en liberale ideeën. Thorbecke was "ontegenzeggelijk een niet gewone man, de leegte zal zeer groot zijn”, schreef een van zijn opvolgers als minister-president in zijn dagboek. Maar wat weten we eigenlijk van hem?Jaap Jansen en PG Kroeger gaan daarom op zoek naar de minder bekende feiten en karakteristieken van deze staatsman die leefde van 1798 tot 1872. Dus van de tijd van Napoleon tot die van Bismarck, van Goethe tot Wagner.Het eerste dat Thorbecke sterk onderscheidt van zijn tijdgenoten, collega's en eigenlijk al zijn opvolgers is dat hij een allochtoon was uit een in die tijd marginale 'culturele minderheid'. Zijn Duitse afkomst en Lutherse opvoeding maakten hem iemand met een veel bredere bagage en blik, zowel als wetenschapper als in zijn politieke en bestuurlijke rollen. Zijn herkomst bleek een krachtig pluspunt.En die achtergrond maakte Thorbecke onmiskenbaar een Europeaan, zowel in culturele en geestelijke zin als in zijn politieke en wetenschappelijke werk. De contacten met zijn familie en met die van zijn Duitse echtgenote zorgden ervoor dat hij eigenlijk permanent over de grenzen heen keek en ook veel bezoeken bracht aan Dresden. Heel bijzonder was daarbij zijn sterke band met de nummer één van de vorsten van zijn tijd, de ruimdenkende koning Leopold van het nieuwe land België.De historische betekenis van Thorbeckes werk aan de Grondwet van 1848 staat buiten kijf, maar de echte gebeurtenissen van die fase laten zien dat hij veel minder 'de maker' ervan was dan vaak gedacht. Niettemin was het meer dan wie ook Thorbecke die de nieuwe constitutie overeind hield en zo grondvestte dat felle tegenstanders als koning Willem III het onderspit moesten delven. Hun strijd was ongekend scherp en zelfs de paus werd in dat conflict partij!Met de nieuwe Grondwet en de energieke uitwerking van de nieuwe bestuurlijke en politieke principes werd Thorbecke een van de grootste emancipatoren in onze geschiedenis. Het maakte hem geliefd en bewonderd, niet alleen bij 'partijgenoten', maar bijvoorbeeld ook bij de katholieken die dankzij hem gelijkberechtigde burgers werden. Hij schafte de slavernij af en op zijn sterfbed tekende hij nog het besluit dat voor het eerst een jonge vrouw toeliet aan de universiteit: Aletta Jacobs.Hij was een echte doener, een man van concrete daden. Hij maakte het Torentje heel bewust de cockpit van macht. Zo werd hij 'de Humboldt der Nederlanden', een groot innovator van de modernste infrastructuur en mobiliteit. Het is dan ook geen wonder dat iemand met zoveel daadkracht en vernuft niet alleen maar vrienden maakte. Daarbij kwam dat Thorbecke een zeer fel en emotioneel mens was.***Deze aflevering is mede mogelijk gemaakt door donaties van luisteraars via Vriend van de Show.

You are writing a book chapter on Canopy Management, it's not out yet, but we got a sneak peak. I'd love a basic primer on canopy management - How would you sum up the importance of proper canopy management and the effects it can have on your crop? What do people forget/get wrong/neglect when it comes to managing their canopy? What kind of factors need to be considered? Can you give us a brief rundown and then we can dig in a little deeper? Physiological Factors Light Interception Is a flat canopy enough? Leaf area Index What is it? Different for different plants? How do you measure it? What's the best Leaf Area Index for cannabis? Shade Avoidance What is this? What is the overall impact on the plant? How does proper (or improper) canopy management affect the plant growth? Ultimately, a primary goal of canopy management is to increase yield and potency How else can canopy management benefit the final product? I came across something in my reading and I'd like to know more about the Source/Sink relationship? Does it differ during different stages of the plant life cycle? What is it and how does canopy management affect it? We've talked to a lot of growers about airflow, but it's usually in the context of disease prevention, and I've not come across something quite as granular as you've written about. Can you explain the importance and then go more into detail about the boundary layer and how it's thickness affects physiological processes? Is there any correlation between airflow and increased yield? Or is it ultimately about pest and disease prevention? As we wrap up, what are your goals with Canna Cribs Consulting? Are there any projects you have going currently that you'd like to tell us about? Is there anything we didn't get a chance to discuss that you'd like to mention?

When first published in 1926, Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises changed American literature forever. Hemingway follows a disillusioned group of expats in post-World War I Europe whose relationships unravel as they travel from Paris to the bullfights in Spain. Unsettling, provocative, and inspiring to this day, this legendary novel about loyalty, love, and betrayal challenges readers to discover what it takes to be true to oneself. Harlem Renaissance writer Claude McKay put it well: “[w]hen Hemingway wrote The Sun Also Rises, he shot a fist in the face of the false romantic-realists and said: ‘You can't fake about life like that.'” And Ralph Waldo Ellison, author of Invisible Man (podcast), said: “Because Hemingway loved the American language and the joy of writing…he was in many ways the true father-as-artist of so many of us who came to writing during the late thirties.” I spoke with Professor Linda Patterson Miller to understand why the novel had such an impact, what the book meant for the “lost generation” after World War I, how to read Hemingway from a feminist perspective, and how best to address parts of the novel that strike us as offensive today. Inspired by this conversation, I wrote an essay on the conspicuous use of the n-word in The Sun Also Rises for a new edition of the novel published by Warbler Press that charts a path beyond the cancel-or-defend-at-all-cost positions in today's culture wars. Professor Miller teaches at Pennsylvania State University's campus in Abington, Pennsylvania, has written seminal essays on Hemingway and other authors, and is the editor of Letters from the Lost Generation: Gerald and Sara Murphy and Friends (2002). Uli Baer teaches literature and photography as University Professor at New York University.

Astronomers recently announced that, with the help of the ESO VLT, they had observed a new type of small — yet powerful — stellar explosion: a Micronova. The study, which was published in "Nature" on April 20, was led by Dr. Simone Scaringi, astronomer at Durham University in the UK. We are pleased to welcome Simone to tonight's WSH to tell us more about this exciting discovery. Simone earned his undergraduate BSc in Mathematics with Astronomy at the University of Southampton, after which he obtained both a M.Phil and PhD also from Southampton in the Astronomy group (2010). He spent the next two years at Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands, as a postdoctoral fellow before moving to KU Leuven, Belgium, in 2012 with a FWO Pegasus Marie Curie fellowship. In 2015 Simone joined the Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching, Germany where he held a Humboldt fellowship. In 2017 Simone was appointed lecturer at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, and in 2018 he moved to the United States as an Assistant Professor at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, USA. Since 2020 he has been an Assistant Professor in the Centre for Extragalactic Astronomy at Durham University. Simone's primary research interests are accretion physics across the scales, compact objects, time-series analysis, machine learning, and Galactic photometric surveys. You can learn more about Simone and his research by visiting his faculty website at Durham University as well as his personal website. You can also follow him on Facebook as well as Twitter, although he admits to rarely using Twitter! IMAGE CREDIT: This artist's impression shows a two-star system where micronovae may occur. The blue disc swirling around the bright white dwarf in the centre of the image is made up of material, mostly hydrogen, stolen from its companion star. Towards the centre of the disc, the white dwarf uses its strong magnetic fields to funnel the hydrogen towards its poles. As the material falls on the hot surface of the star, it triggers a micronova explosion, contained by the magnetic fields at one of the white dwarf's poles. Credit: ESO/M. Kornmesser, L.

Abortion Pills Are Used For Most U.S. Abortions. What Are They? The draft Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion access is once again in jeopardy. Nearly half of U.S. states will immediately ban abortion upon a Roe v. Wade overturn. Medication abortion, or abortion by pill, is currently the most common method of abortion in the United States. In 2020, 54% of abortions in the United States were medication abortions, according to research from the Guttmacher Institute. If the Supreme Court decision is overturned, it's expected that the ease and convenience of an abortion pill may make medication abortion an even larger share of all abortions nationwide. Ira talks with Ushma Upadhyay, associate professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health at UC San Francisco. Upadhyay explains how medication abortion works, how its regulated, and its role in a possible post Roe v. Wade era.   One Alaskan Island's Fight For A Rodent-Free Future For millions of years, birds lived nearly predator free in the Aleutian Islands. The volcanic archipelago stretches westward for 1,200 miles from the Alaska Peninsula, dotting a border between the North Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea. Hundreds of bird species thrived here. But then came the rats. When a Japanese boat sank in the Western Aleutians around 1780, stowaway rats jumped ship and made it to one of the islands, wreaking havoc on the ecosystem. The rodents proliferated during World War II, when American Navy ships traveled along the chain, expanding the rats' domain. “The rats are like an oil spill that keeps on spilling, year after year,” said Steve Delehanty, the refuge manager for the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. “We would never allow an oil spill to go on for decades or centuries, nor should we allow rats to be a forever-presence on these islands.” Read the rest at sciencefriday.com. Campsites At National Parks ‘Harder Than Getting Beyonce Tickets' Access to the outdoors has long had an equity problem. Whether it's the expense of equipment or hostility from fellow hikers, marginalized groups have had more barriers to enjoying recreation in nature. Now, new research in the Journal of Park and Recreation Administration has data on one tool that was supposed to improve access for more people: the online system of reserving campgrounds at national parks. Compared to people camping at first-come first-serve campsites in the same parks, the people who successfully use the reservation systems are wealthier, better-educated, and more likely to be white. Ira talks to research co-author Will Rice about the factors that make reservations harder to access, how wealthier people succeed in working the system to their advantage, and how publicly-funded campgrounds like the national parks could more fairly manage rising demand.   How Restaurant Menus Mirror Our Warming Ocean Before the 1980's, you probably wouldn't have found Humboldt squid on a restaurant menu in Vancouver. But now, the warm water-loving critter has expanded towards the poles as ocean temperatures rise, and you can see that change on restaurant menus. In a new study in the journal Environmental Biology of Fishes, researchers from the University of British Columbia looked at more than 360 menus, dating back to 1880. They found a connection between climate change and which seafood types rose to fame on restaurant menus over the years… and which ones flopped off. Ira speaks with study co-author Dr. William Cheung about how our menus mirror what's happening to our oceans. Plus, a conversation with Chef Ned Bell about why it's important that our plates adapt to changes in our local ecosystems.   Transcripts for each segment will be available the week after the show airs on sciencefriday.com.

Pourquoi les oiseaux sont-ils plus colorés dans les pays tropicaux ?

Une récente étude vient de confirmer une hypothèse émise par des naturalistes des siècles passés : les oiseaux vivant dans des contrées proches des tropiques ont un plumage plus coloré. Pour expliquer ce phénomène, les scientifiques avancent plusieurs explications. Des oiseaux tropicaux plus colorés L'intuition de Darwin et d'un autre naturaliste du XIXe siècle, Humboldt, était bien juste : plus on se rapproche des tropiques, plus le plumage des oiseaux se pare de couleurs vives. La confirmation est venue d'une récente étude, publiée dans une revue spécialisée. Pour la mener à bien, les chercheurs ont examiné le plumage de plus de 4.500 espèces d'oiseaux, vivant dans toutes les zones du globe. Ils ont notamment utilisé les spécimens très bien conservés de certains muséums d'histoire naturelle. En se servant d'une technique très élaborée d'intelligence artificielle, ils ont étudié de près la coloration d'environ 1.500 parties du plumage de ces oiseaux. Et leur conclusion est claire : plus on s'éloigne des tropiques, et plus le plumage de ces oiseaux est terne. Bien sûr, l'inverse est également vrai. Il faut cependant tenir compte du fait que, dans les zones tropicales, les espèces d'oiseaux sont plus nombreuses. Pourquoi ces différences de couleurs ? Les scientifiques ne connaissent pas avec certitude la raison d'un tel phénomène. Mais ils avancent plusieurs hypothèses, dont celle du camouflage. En effet, des oiseaux très colorés peuvent se fondre dans la végétation luxuriante de la forêt tropicale. Alors qu'ils ne pourraient pas se dissimuler dans les frondaisons aux couleurs moins vives des pays tempérés. C'est pourquoi, sans doute, les oiseaux de ces latitudes arborent un plumage plus discret. Pour les spécialistes, l'alimentation doit aussi jouer un rôle dans la coloration du plumage. En effet, elle est davantage composée de nectar et de fruits dans les pays tropicaux. Il se peut aussi que les nécessités de l'accouplement aient leur part dans ce phénomène. Au cours de la compétition à laquelle il donne lieu entre les mâles, la coloration du plumage semble en effet jouer un rôle important. Cette palette variée de couleurs servirait aussi à distinguer les espèces entre elles, dans un environnement tropical où les oiseaux sont très nombreux. Learn more about your ad choices.

Sheila Jasanoff on Science and Technology Studies

Sheila Jasanoff, the Pforzheimer Professor of Science and Technology Studies at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government, is a pioneer in the field of STS. That acronym can be unpacked as either ‘science and technology studies' or ‘science, technology and society.' Jasanoff -- who describes herself as a sociologist of knowledge and a constructivist, trained in law, working in the tradition of the interpretive social sciences – is content with either use. “I think that represents two phases of the same field,” she tells interviewer David Edmonds in this Social Science Bites podcast. “First of all, it's the field that looks in detail at the institutions of science and technology and asks, ‘What are they like?' ‘What does it feel like to be doing them?' ‘What do they operate like as social institutions, as cultures, as formations in society?' The other face of STS – science, technology and society – is more about how science and technology function when they get out into the world at large.” Amid that expansive view, some areas, of course, particularly interest Jasanoff. “The more interesting turn,” she details, “was the turn that tried to occupy the territory previously given to philosophy of science, and started asking sociological and political questions about it.” One such question is the eternal “What is truth?” STS, a brash newcomer, took on the inquiry with gusto. “It took a kind of arrogance, if you will, certainly a bravery, in the 1970s, to say that, ‘Hey, truth isn't just out there. It's not just a Platonic thing and we try to approximate it. We can actually study truth as if it was a social production.' That,” she explains, “was the heartland of science and technology studies.” In the interview, Jasanoff outlines how science is often presented as a capital-T repository of Truth even in an age where the ‘death of the expert' has become a common trope. Citing the pandemic and how scientific advice changed on mask wearing, Jasanoff argues that “people should not be surprised that in crisis mode the way we know things changes and therefore the advice may change. Science has been sold as a bill of goods for so long that it is the Truth, it is reliable, a fact is always fact the moment we assert it, that these sorts of commonsensical things that we ought to understand have become difficult for people to grasp.” (Jasanoff's own research often looks at cross-national differences in her research, and after looking at mask-wearing in 16 nations she reports that “only in America has it become an article of faith – are you for science or against science” – based on your mask usage.) Remember, she continues, “The expert is not an embodiment of scientific fact. An expert is a particular kind of person who is qualified in particular ways, and every time we say ‘qualification,' something about the English language or about language in general, forces us to look at the skills that allow one to be considered qualified. “In fact, we should look at the external periphery of the qualification; a qualification sets boundaries on what you know, but it also sets boundaries on what you don't know.” Expertise is this double edged-thing.” Jasanoff is the founder and director of Harvard's Program on Science, Technology and Society. She's the author of several books aimed at both the academy and the public, such as 1990's The Fifth Branch: Science Advisers as Policymakers, 2012's Science and Public Reason, and Can Science Make Sense of Life? in 2019. The University of Bergen, acting for the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research, awarded her the Holberg Prize in March. That was the latest in a slew of honors for her research, including the University of Ghent Sarton Chair and the Reimar Lüst Award from the Alexander von Humboldt and Fritz Thyssen Foundations, a Guggenheim fellowship in 2010, and in 2018 the Albert O. Hirschman Prize from the Social Science Research Council. She is an elected foreign member of the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters, and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, where she served on the board of directors.

Red Silk: Class, Gender, and Revolution in China's Yangzi Delta Silk Industry (Harvard UP, 2020) is a history of China's Yangzi Delta silk industry during the wars, crises, and revolutions of the mid-twentieth century. Based on extensive research in Chinese archives and focused on the 1950s, the book compares two very different groups of silk workers and their experiences in the revolution. Male silk weavers in Shanghai factories enjoyed close ties to the Communist party-state and benefited greatly from socialist policies after 1949. In contrast, workers in silk thread mills, or filatures, were mostly young women who lacked powerful organizations or ties to the revolutionary regime. For many filature workers, working conditions changed little after 1949 and politicized production campaigns added a new burden within the brutal and oppressive factory regime in place since the nineteenth century. Both groups of workers and their employers had to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances. Their actions--protests, petitions, bribery, tax evasion--compelled the party-state to adjust its policies, producing new challenges. The results, though initially positive for many, were ultimately disastrous. By the end of the 1950s, there was widespread conflict and deprivation among silk workers and, despite its impressive recovery under Communist rule, the industry faced a crisis worse than war and revolution.
