(10/27/21)We don't vote for federal judges; they're appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. However, public influence has undeniably had a dramatic effect on the Court, it is the wealthy and powerful who have always benefitted from our legal system. Attorney Richard Jacobs's new book Democracy of Dollars: Where Natural and Constitutional Rights Go To the Highest Bidder looks at the ways direct democracy has been hijacked by big money and partisan politics. Join us for a look at how to transform America into an actual representative democracy in this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI.
In this episode of “Keen On”, Andrew is joined by Margaret D. Jacobs, the author of “After One Hundred Winters: In Search of Reconciliation on America's Stolen Lands”, to confront the harsh truth that the United States was founded on the violent dispossession of Indigenous people and asks what reconciliation might mean in light of this haunted history. Margaret D. Jacobs is professor of history and director of the Center for Great Plains Studies at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Her books include White Mother to a Dark Race: Settler Colonialism, Maternalism, and the Removal of Indigenous Children in the American West and Australia, 1880–1940.

On today’s show:A company that wants to take a shot at a male contraceptive gets a shot of fundingBoosters are authorized for the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson VaccineRegional updates from the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission including information about broadband expansion Ground is broken for the School of Data Science at the University of Virginia It’s been a few days since a newsletter, so let’s catch up first on today’s COVID numbers. The September surge is now in the past with new case numbers continuing to decline in Virginia. The seven-day average is currently 1,688 new cases a day. Compare that to 3,486 a day as registered on September 22. The seven day percent positivity has declined to 6.5 percent. In the Blue Ridge Health District there are another 50 new cases reported today. The percent positivity is 5.5 percent. Though numbers are currently on a downward trend, that may not remain the case. “We’re all hopeful that we’re on the back side of this Delta wave right now,” said Dr. Costi Sifri, director of hospital epidemiology at the University of Virginia. “I think we also do recognize that we’re heading into colder drier times right now and that we’re going into to respiratory virus season, the so-called cold and flu season, and cold, flu, and maybe COVID season.”Dr. Sifri said people need to continue to keep their guard up against community spread by continuing to wear masks, to wash hands, and all of the preventative measures that have been recommended over the course of the pandemic. This week, the Centers for Disease Control cleared the way for booster shots of the Modern and the Johnson and Johnson vaccines. The Moderna third dose is for people over the age of 65 and those with underlying health conditions.“For Moderna it’s similar to the Pfizer dose, it would be a third dose,” Dr. Sifri said. “For both the Pfizer and the Moderna, the booster eligibility is six months after the completion of your primary series, that initial two dose series. There is a difference in the dose for the booster dose for the Moderna vaccine. It’s a half dose compared to what was used for the primary series.”The Johnson and Johnson booster is a second dose that Dr. Sifri said will be available for anyone over the age of 18, regardless of underlying health conditions. “I can tell you here at UVA and I’m sure at the Blue Ridge Health District as well and local pharmacies, we are gearing up to provide those vaccines through local resources,” Dr. Sifri said. A Charlottesville-based company that wants to bring a male contraceptive to market recently announced the securing of $10.7 million in new capital financing. Contraline will use the funding to begin a human trial of ADAM™ , a hydrogel implant. “The ADAM hydrogel is injected into the vas deferens through a quick and minimally invasive outpatient procedure, where it’s designed to block the flow of sperm,” reads a press release making the announcement. The trial will take place in Melbourne, Australia and has been sanctioned by the Human Research Ethics Committee there. The press releases states this is the first human trial for a male contraceptive in a couple of decades. (Hat tip to the Charlottesville Business Innovation Council!)Ground has been broken for construction of the new School of Data Science at the University of Virginia. According to UVA Today, officials marked the occasion with a ceremony Thursday. The new building is within the 14 acre Emmet / Ivy corridor, which will also include a hotel and conference center as well as other uses that have not yet been announced. The school is being funded in part through a $120 million gift to UVA from the Quantitative Foundation and Merrill and Jaffrey Woodriff. Charlottesville 350 is the local chapter of a national organization that seeks to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Charlottesville 350 uses online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions to oppose new coal, oil and gas projects, and build 100% clean energy solutions that work for all. To learn more about their most active campaigns, including a petition drive to the Richmond Federal Reserve Bank, visit their Facebook page at facebook.com/cville350This week, Governor Ralph Northam’s press office sent out a message announcing that Virginia’s government and the private sector have teamed up on over $2 billion in investments in broadband. The goal is to have the state on track to have universal broadband access by 2024. The work is coordinated through the Virginia Telecommunications Initiative, or VATI. The Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission has made one of 57 applications from across Virginia for $943 million in available funding in the latest round of VATI funding, Those applications will leverage $1.15 billion in private funding. The program is run by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development. “These applications are all posted online so other services providers are able to see those applications to see what the projected service areas to be covered are and if they believe that they already have service or provide the opportunity for service in a particular area, then they can indicate they want to challenge the application or that portion of the application,” said David Blount, deputy director and legislative liaison at the TJPDC. Challenges are due October 24. The TJPDC’s application is part of the Regional Internet Service Expansion project, or RISE. The private aspect is Firefly Fiber Broadband, Dominion, and several electric cooperatives. The public aspect includes thirteen counties as far south as Campbell County south of Lynchburg. (read the application)TJPDC’s request is for $85.9 million for a $307.8 million project. Localities have put up $35.3 million in local matching funds. “The application proposes putting 4,300 miles of fiber either in the air or underground passing over 40,000 total locations,” Blount said. Blount said TJPDC’s role would be to administer the project. He made his comments at the October 4, 2021 meeting of the TJPDC’s Board of Commissioners. At the same meeting, Dale Herring of the Greene Board of Supervisors reported that short-term rentals are no longer allowed in that county’s residential districts. “Unfortunately or fortunately depending on which side of the fence you are on, that was voted down after about three years,” Herring said. “It turned out that a lot of investors were beginning to buy properties in R-1 zoning and that definitely created an issue for the homeowners in those areas.” The TJPDC meetings always include a roundtable where representatives from the different localities are able to give updates on what’s happening. Tommy Barlow is on the Louisa County Board of Supervisors. “It looks like to me that every meeting we are dealing with mid-year appropriations that weren’t expected such as Sheriff’s Department raises to keep up with other counties,” Barlow said. “We just lost our deputy county administrator so we’re looking to hire another one.”Employment was also on the mind of Albemarle Supervisor Donna Price, who said a thorough review of compensation will soon get underway. “We are facing loss of some critical people primarily because of compensation packages from other governmental entities that are extremely difficult for us to match,” Price said. “I would just as one Supervisor speaking anticipate that we’re going to have to put some more money into our labor expenses in the county in order to avoid losing some of our better people.” Tony O’Brien is on the Fluvanna Board of Supervisors. He agreed that the cost of paying people to do government work is increasing.“Because Louisa raised their pay rate for the Sheriff’s office, Fluvanna had to follow in turn, too,” O’Brien said. “Obviously Sheriff’s compensation and deputy’s compensation is an issue for many many counties as recruitment is increasingly difficult.” O’Brien suggested a regional compensation study be conducted. As part of her report, TJPDC Executive Director Christine Jacobs reminded the board that City Council has extended its local COVID emergency due to a high number of cases. “How that affects us here is that we will continue to hold our public bodies, partnerships, and commissions virtually to ensure that we are keeping it as safe as possible for people,” Jacobs said. The chair of the TJPDC is Jesse Rutherford of Nelson County. Rutherford said Nelson is considering a recreation center and a business park, among other things. He also had this news. “I’m excited to announce Lovingston is getting its brewery here soon after our vote on Tuesday,” Rutherford said. According to the Lynchburg News Advance, supervisors voted unanimously on October 12 for a special use permit for the Outback Brew House to operate at the site of a former church on U.S. 29. Rutherford told the News Advance that this may begin to alleviate pressure on Route 151, which has seen multiple alcohol related businesses spring up over the years. Outback Brew House will be a microbrewery. Special announcement! Today’s the third day of a new promo with Ting! Are you interested in fast internet?

This episode highlights the ways that librarians and faculty can partner in designing assignments that draw on archival records to emphasize the cultural, political, and social significance of nineteenth-century literary texts. Specifically, we explore the affordances of using archival records, particularly bills of sale for enslaved people, to teach Harriet Jacobs's Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl. Wake Forest University English faculty and Special Collections and Archives librarians talk about the discoveries students make through assignments that allow them to incorporate nineteenth-century historical documents from slavery into their reading and analysis of Jacobs's narrative. We also consider the significant emotional challenges that this kind of direct material engagement poses, discussing the ways we have presented and revised our assignments to account for potentially traumatic triggering. Episode produced by Carrie Johnston (Digital Humanities Research Designer), Rian Bowie (Associate Teaching Professor of English), Megan Mulder (Special Collections Librarian), Tanya Zanish-Belcher (Director of Special Collections and Archives) and Brianna Derr (Wake Forest University Information Systems).

What you'll learn in this episode: Why jewelry artists from the 60s and 70s, such as Andrew Grima and Arthur King, are gaining more appreciation today The difference between artist jewelers and jewelry by artists What a jewelry lover should do to refine their taste and start their collection What defines a passionate collector What to expect from the Kimberly's upcoming exhibition “Simply Brilliant: Artist-Jewelers of the 1960s and 1970s” About Kimberly Klosterman A graduate of Stephens College with a BFA in design, Kimberly Klosterman was always interested in art, antiques and design. After graduation she studied Decorative Arts at Sotheby's London, where she was exposed to the world of antique jewelry. Upon return to Cincinnati, she and her Husband, Michael Lowe, opened their first gallery selling art and antiques. At this time, she also began her search for fine jewelry. To make ends meet for the new business, Klosterman went to work in the family company, Klosterman Baking Company, in 1982 where she currently moonlights as C.E.O. Her jewelry business, established after another Sotheby's course, Understanding Jewelry, was opened in 1996. Her love of 1960s and 70s jewelry developed through the tutelage of Amanda Triossi, whose own collection thrilled Klosterman. After living in Amsterdam and London, she returned to Cincinnati where she continues to collect fine jewelry. Klosterman has given gallery talks at the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Taft Museum, the American Society of Jewelry Historians, and the American Society of Jewelry Appraisers, NYC Jewelry Week, Christies Auction, Bonhams Auction, etc. The current exhibition “Simply Brilliant: Artist-Jewelers of the 1960s and 1970s,” organized by Cynthia Amnéus, Chief Curator and Curator of Fashion at the Cincinnati Art Museum, is a result of Klosterman's passion for collecting. Her goal, to help preserve the legacy of these bold men and women who were jewelers to the jet-set. The exhibition, which opened at DIVA in Antwerp, Belgum and traveled to the Schmuckmuseum in Pforzhiem, Germany, will be on view in Cincinnati Oct 22- Feb 6. A catalog complete with biographies and makers' marks accompanies the exhibition. Additional Resources: Website Facebook Instagram Pintrest Photos: This is the cover of the book, which is also the catalog and a listing of where the exhibit has been.

Arthur king Brooch Collection of Andy Warhol and Kim Klosterman Andrew Grima amethyst ring. Andrew Grima agate and tourmaline necklace. Transcript: What makes a passionate collector? For Kimberly Klosterman, it's someone who can't get enough of the objects they love, no matter what they are. She herself became a passionate collector of 1960s and 70s jewelry long before it became popular. Her collection is now being featured in a traveling exhibition, “Simply Brilliant: Artist-Jewelers of the 1960s and 1970s.” She joined the Jewelry Journey Podcast to talk about the qualities that draw her to 60s and 70s jewelry; why the unique jewelry of this period has come back in style; and what aspiring collectors should do to create a thoughtful collection. Read the episode transcript here. Sharon: Could you collect a production piece in your collection? Kimberly: I do have some production pieces in my collection, for example pieces by Elsa Peretti; I happen to like Elsa Peretti very much. I think she's a great designer, but again, she settled on jewelry as being her first and foremost love. Even though they're production pieces, in my opinion, she's an artist jeweler because she's designing that way. Other production pieces that I have—during the late 60s and early 70s, Cartier made some production pieces that were pretty wonderful. There was another person, Aldo Cipullo, who designed the love bracelet and a number of other things that Cartier started selling. I think of him as an artist jeweler as well. Sharon: Is a piece that you want for your collection high-end or limited like Peretti? She's not what I consider a production jeweler. I'm sure some of her work she signed and numbered, but I wouldn't consider it production. You used TJ Maxx before; if you walked into TJ Maxx and saw a piece and you thought, “Oh my god, this is incredible,” would you maybe not wear it but consider buying it? Kimberly: I love all kind of things, but for my collection, no. They're signed pieces. That's something, too, that I always looked for in forming my collection. I would see things that I thought were interesting and I would buy them. It didn't always have to be signed, but nine out of 10 times, if the piece was signed, even if I didn't know the name of the maker at all, I would buy it if I liked the piece because then I could do the research later. A lot of the material I have in my collection came to me that way, by buying unknown people and later finding out who they were and why they were important to this group of people in this time period. Sharon: If somebody wants to start a collection, if you've ignited somebody's interest in this, where would you say they start? I don't necessarily believe that things always have to be signed. I have some very nice things that aren't signed, but where would you suggest they start? Are there certain designers? Kimberly: First of all, just getting out and seeing what's available is very helpful. Go to the big shows. If you can, go to Miami, or there's a show coming up in New York. Go to interesting places, because you can see a lot of jewelry and start thinking about what you might like. Look at books, look at auction catalogues; auctions are also a great place to look. Then settle on something that sings to you and go down that path. I think people have accumulations of things, which is really a shame. I find that people want what their friends have. They buy this and this, things that are hot, like Van Cleef and Arpels Zodiac pendants, which are fine; they're wonderful and they're really cool, but you start ticking off things. I want an Alhambra necklace; I want a Van Cleef Zodiac signed. To me, that's wonderful jewelry. It's great to wear all the time, and it is a collection. Believe me, the stuff will become and is more valuable than many of the one-of-a-kind pieces I like. You know what? Scratch all that stuff. That's not good to say. Sharon: It is a collection if you're talking about the Zodiac piece and Alhambra. Kimberly: It's a collection and it's fine to have. I guess sometimes I get bummed out because I feel so passionate about these wonderful, one-of-a-kind pieces, and I find that a lot of times, people can't wrap their minds around it because it's something they don't understand or haven't seen much of. Sharon: Also, you might not be doing as much dealing now, but you look at things in terms of whether it's going to appreciate. I buy things knowing sometimes they will appreciate. I have a friend who buys only with the idea of selling it. I don't do that. Kimberly: No, I definitely don't either. I just buy my passion and what appeals to me. Sharon: I don't know if I would have had the fortitude; you must have had to buckle up. Why you started out in this genre of jewelry, you must have had to buck a lot of people saying, “Oh my god, what do you see in that?” Kimberly: Well, dealers didn't say that because they were just happy to get rid of it. I had a number of people showing me things that weren't right at all, and I'd still get that. This is my view, and it's like, “No, that doesn't look like it at all.” I just love this path, and I think you do too, of having jewelry that celebrates your individualism. Sharon: Similar to you, I love it when I find a piece that's one of a kind, even though nobody ever heard of the person. They're never going to become a Cartier, but I like the fact that it's really different. I'm curious about the exhibit, which I'm looking forward to seeing at some point in Cincinnati. Tell us about how it came about. Was that your brainchild? Kimberly: Yeah, it was interesting. In 2012, I had given a lecture for the American Society of Jewelry Historians in Manhattan, and in the audience was the curator of jewelry for the Cooper Hewitt, Sarah Coffin. Sarah came up to me after the lecture and said, “All this stuff is amazing. I think we should do an exhibition,” and I said, “Oh, that's a cool idea. I like that idea.” For one reason or another, we could never get it together. In 2015, I started thinking, “I'm going to propose this to someone else,” and I started thinking about what museum might make sense and who might like the idea. I went to the Cincinnati Art Museum and heard Cynthia Amnéus speak, and I was very impressed by the talk she gave. I remember that it was on modernism, a subject I know pretty well, and she had to get the lecture together overnight. I thought, “Wow, if she can do that overnight, she knows her stuff.” So, I went to Cynthia and said, “I have this collection of jewelry, and I'd like to talk to you about it.” She took my PowerPoint presentation and she really liked it. I thought this would make perfect sense because she's Curator of Fashion for the Cincinnati Art Museum, and it's literally in my own backyard. I know the material really well and I knew that a lot of people didn't understand it, so I knew I was going to have to be hands on with the exhibition. This gave me the opportunity to do that, and it was really exciting. After the show was accepted, we decided to travel it. It was an honor that DIVA picked up the show. They did a great exhibition. Sadly, I didn't get to see it because of Covid. Following that, it went to the Schmuckmuseum of Pforzheim, Germany. Cornelie Holzach knew all about this kind of material, which I was very excited about. I had met with her and asked if they would be interested. She knew almost everyone in the exhibition, and she had great stories about them. I showed her a watch I had and she said, “I think that's this artist,” and she went back and showed me where the source came from and some of their early catalogues. It was a real honor to be in both of those museums. I'm looking forward to the show in Cincinnati. Sharon: How long is it on for? Until next year, at least? Kimberly: Yes, it runs October 21 through February 6. Sharon: I certainly hope I get there. Cincinnati from Los Angeles is at least a little bit closer than New York. The other thing I'm curious about is what attracted you to this kind of jewelry first and what holds your attention. Kimberly: For me, it's the naturalistic quality of the jewelry. There's a lot of texture and warmth in most of the jewelry I collect, and I love the idea of using odd materials. The necklace I have on today by Arthur King has an amber piece with a petrified mosquito in it, and I just love that. The Gilbert Albert pieces that are in the catalogue with the fossilized ammonites, I think those are very interesting. I have some jewelry also by Gilbert Albert with beetles in them. I find all this natural material something special, and the natural crystals and uncut stones. Sharon: Did it give birth to what we see today? Kimberly: I really believe so. I haven't talked to any young designers as to what their inspiration is, but one would think. All you have to do is look at the catalogue and page through it to see how this jewelry could have influenced young designers. Jacobs, for example, is a huge fan of Andrew Grima. So was the fashion world, I think. Sharon: You could take any piece from the catalogue and put it in Nieman Marcus today. It wouldn't look like a dated piece or anything; it would look like a fashion piece or a current piece. It's a beautiful book, and I encourage anybody who has an interest in this to get their hands on it and take a look. Did you think about the book on its own aside from the exhibit, or did the book only come about because you knew you were doing an exhibit? Kimberly: The book came about because of the exhibit, but I did feel very strongly that the two should go hand in hand. I think, especially for jewelry, that's a wonderful thing to happen, because you're able to see the pieces in the flesh rather than just see them in a book. I do like having the record of the book. One thing we did, and this is where the dealer and the collector part of me comes in, is that the book is mainly buyers of these different artist jewelers who were fascinated themselves. Many of them sold to the jet set; it was that time and period and craziness. There are buyers of the artist jewelers, and in the back we have makers' marks of all the jewelers that are in the exhibition. That comes in handy, especially for some of the more cryptic makers' marks that people can't figure out so well. Sharon: It's fabulous to see that. It's a great resource. I know you have a background—is it in art history? Kimberly: Design primarily, but my husband I have had a gallery for as long as I can remember, and we've been together about 40 years. My husband sells, but mainly he's like I am. We're both hopeless collectors. It's mostly minimal and conceptual art. Sharon: Wow! Do you enjoy the research part because it's researching jewelry and art, or do you like research in general? Kimberly: I love research. I love research in general I suppose, but anything I'm passionate about. The only other thing I like to do is eat. Sharon: I can join you in that. Are there certain characteristics that a new collector should look at in terms of signatures or one-of-a-kind or limited edition? You're driven by what you like and you're suggesting that new collector would be driven by what they like. O.K., but are there certain things—everything you're pointing out has what I call tentacles. You called them something else before. What are the characteristics here? Kimberly: Again for me, I think it goes back to the naturalism of all the material. I have to say I've always described my jewelry as painterly, meaning it's textural, it has some kind of artistic quality to it. If I had to give advice to a budding collector, like I said, it would be try to see as much as you can, read as much as you can, and if you don't read, that's O.K.; look at the pictures. Look at jewelry catalogues and jewelry books and jewelry publications. Everybody will hit on something. It's like you said earlier; you've got how many black shirts in your closet? I'm with you on that account, too. I think we will walk down our path of what our own taste is. It's just discovering what the level of taste is and then going with it. Sharon: Years ago, I was trying to decide what I should keep, what I should look at passing on or selling, and someone who sold art said to me, “Buy what you love.” I talked to other collectors in other areas where I tend to be—if it's in TJ Maxx, I may not buy it, just to be truthful about it. Are you a believer in the buy what you love, or are you looking for certain things? Kimberly: Oh, absolutely. You have to buy what you love. The things is, you have to learn what you love, and you only do that by exposing yourself to what's out there, or else you don't know what you love. It's just like a kid; they won't eat certain things because they haven't tried them. Then they try them and they like them. You need to know what's out there and what's available so you can form an educated opinion. After all, like Christopher Dresser said, “Knowledge is power.” I think that's an important statement. Sharon: I want to say it's amazing—that's not really the word I want, but the fact that you've collected this for so many decades now, several decades, and it's still what you love. I don't know what I want to say, but there are things I've liked; there are trends, but the fact that you have been so passionate about it for so long— Kimberly: It's interesting, because I am very passionate about it still and I don't see that waning at all, but that said, I love ancient jewelry. I love antique jewelry. I love jewelry by artists. There are many, many different kinds of jewelry that I absolutely adore as well. I just don't go down that path as much because I find that I know more about this now. It's like a friend of mine said, “Stick to your knitting.” I try to do that. However, with the ancient jewelry and ethnic jewelry, it informs the stuff I collect anyway. It's not uncommon for me to wear a pre-Columbian pendant. What else do I have that I like to wear a lot? I have a lot of jewelry by a woman named Patti Cadby Birch who took ancient materials and reconfigured them in the 70s, so the materials are ancient, but they're a little more wearable. I love that as well. Sharon: Have you thought about what your next exhibition is going to be? Kimberly: I'm going to say, because I don't know if it'll be an exhibition or not, but I'm really fond of the work by Arthur King. I think he's an interesting American jeweler and an important American jeweler from the 60s. There are lots of people out there that have his jewelry. In my dream world, if I have time to do it, I'd like to do an exhibition of Arthur King, not just with the jewelry I have. Anybody listening, if you're an Arthur King collector, I would really like to do a museum exhibition of his work. I would do that myself. Sharon: That would be fabulous. I don't know his work. When you say there are a lot of people out there who collect him, I'm sure there are. I don't see a lot of it. When I go to shows, I don't see it or I don't know it. It's not being called out, like when they have a little tag saying, “This is a Cartier.” There are lots of jewelers besides Cartier, but I'm just saying. That would be fabulous. I didn't even know he was American. Kimberly: Oh, yeah. He had a couple of stores in Manhattan and, like I said, in Florida as well, so lot of his jewelry ended up in those pockets of the world. A lot of people knew him, and there are some great stories about him. I have been in touch with people that were close to him, and right now I'm trying to get their stories just in case this comes to fruition. Sharon: That would be a fabulous next step. I'm sure you're just going to sit down and be, like my husband would say, “eating bonbons” after this. Anyway, Kimberly, thank you so much for being here. The exhibit sounds wonderful. Who better to put it together and drive it than you, with your passion and knowledge? We are all looking forward to it. It starts October 21 at the Cincinnati Art Museum, which I understand is a fabulous museum. I look forward to getting there, and I hope everybody listening to this can make it also.

Michelle Jacobs and Sally Mueller met 20 years ago and soon became friends, creative collaborators, and honest sounding boards for one another. Many years later, Sally shared that she discovered her recent aches and pains, vaginal dryness, and dry skin were all connected to menopause. The pair reached out to friends and colleagues and realized this was all too common, particularly for women in their 40s, 50s, and beyond.

La menace de guerre totale s'est invitée dans l'univers de la bande dessinée francophone durant la guerre froide, dans la seconde partie du XXe siècle. De quelle manière a-t-elle marqué les grands auteurs de bande dessinée, de Martin à Hergé en passant par Jacobs? Nous retrouvons Michel Porret, professeur honoraire d'histoire moderne à l'Université de Genève. Photo: couverture de "La Marque jaune", album mythique de la série Blake et Mortimer, sur un mur de Bruxelles. La série a été créée par le dessinateur belge Edgar P. Jacobs en 1946. On était alors au début de la guerre froide et bientôt en pleine psychose d'une apocalypse nucléaire. Francis Blake (à droite) est un ancien pilote de la Royal Air Force alors que son ami le professeur Philip Mortimer est un des plus éminents scientifiques du Royaume-Uni, spécialiste de... la physique nucléaire.

Can there ever be reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in a nation rooted in a legacy of violence and systemic racism? In Town Hall's 110th Episode of the In the Moment podcast, Steve Scher interviews Margaret D. Jacobs, who explores such questions in her book After One Hundred Winters: In Search of Reconciliation on America's Stolen Lands. Jacobs' book confronts the painful foundation of the United States through stories of the individuals and communities who are trying to work together by healing historical wounds. But healing doesn't come through denying history; it comes through listening, learning, and putting Indigenous land rights, sovereignty, and values at the forefront of the discussion. Margaret D. Jacobs is professor of history and director of the Center for Great Plains Studies at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Her books include White Mother to a Dark Race: Settler Colonialism, Maternalism, and the Removal of Indigenous Children in the American West and Australia, 1880–1940. Steve Scher is a podcaster and interviewer and has been a teacher at the University of Washington since 2009. He worked in Seattle public radio for almost 30 years and is Senior Correspondent for Town Hall Seattle's In The Moment podcast.

If you're serious about radio, audio and media as part of your career, chances are you're familiar with Radio Halll of Famerhttps://www.radiohalloffame.com/fred-jacobs ( FRED JACOBS). After a spectacular career in programming, he founded https://jacobsmedia.com/ (Jacobs Media) in the '80s. With the arrival of digital media in the '90s, Jacobs pivoted toward new media, starting with nationwide https://jacobsmedia.com/techsurvey-2021-results/ (Techsurveys) that helped identify changing audience tastes. In this episode, Fred reveals ONE saving grace for traditional media. The game plan is simple. The solution is 100% logical. The question...will anybody DO IT?
This week's guests are Jan Jacobs and Leo Premutico, the founders of Johannes Leonardo. They describe themselves as a creative and effectiveness agency who exist to create a world of courageous brands. However you define the company, it has demonstrated exceptional courage and produced relentless creativity for 14 years. Their starting point for both comes not from leaning in but stepping back. In years to come, historians will write about this period as one of unprecedented change. An epoch that separated what came before from what is still to be defined. Today, we live with two new realities. Yesterday was an unreliable indicator of what today became. And tomorrow, anything is possible. Leading a business that thrives in that kind of environment has become exponentially more challenging than it was even six months ago. ‘Everyone stay home.' That created a level playing field that is now officially over. Now comes the hard part, redesigning your company so that it can win when there are no rules, no norms, no references, no comps and no best practices. Now, leaders are really going to have to lead. Which makes Leo's recognition of listening as a creative act, an invaluable building block in the road to the future. If you're listening to this podcast, I'm willing to bet that your company is filled with brilliant minds. Listening to them to get help with the answers is a good place to start. Listening to them to get help with the questions is even better. And makes whatever you come up with, not only original, but a competitive advantage.

The Outer Limits of Inner Truth features Hall of Fame Professional Wrestler and Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs. Jacobs shares his views on where he sees things headed for the future, the impact Dr. Ron Paul has had on the liberty movement, and what individuals can do to become leaders in their communities. Jacobs has served on the East Tennessee Children's Hospital advisory council and the board of the Halls/Powell Boys and Girls Club. Additionally, his small business, Jacobs Insurance Associates, became the local champion of the Kindness Revolution, a national anti-bullying initiative. And he, along with his wife Crystal, founded Kane's Crusaders, a non-profit organization with the mission of bringing joy to chronically ill teenagers in East Tennessee. Mayor Jacobs' goals for his administration include keeping taxes low, finding efficiencies in government, supporting education and encouraging diversity. LINK:
After One Hundred Winters confronts the harsh truth that the United States has thrived on land violently taken away from Indigenous people. Settler historian Margaret Jacobs asks what reconciliation might mean in light of this haunted history. She argues that we have much to gain by learning from our history instead of denying it, even as she lays out the brutal legacy of systemic racial injustice to Indigenous people. Jacobs also explains how early attempts at reconciliation were only successful in further robbing tribal nations of their already reduced land holdings and forcing their children into abusive boarding schools. True reconciliation, she insists, can only emerge through Indigenous leadership and sustained relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people rooted in specific places and histories. In the absence of an official apology and a federal Truth and Reconciliation Commission, a movement for transformative reconciliation is unofficially underway that puts Indigenous land rights, sovereignty, and values at the forefront. With historical sensitivity and an eye to the future, Jacobs urges people to face the past and learn from it, and once they have done so, to redress past abuses.

It's hard not to describe the amazing SID JACOBS as a master of guitar, but he'll be the first to tell you he's an eternal student of the instrument. And it's true — the renowned jazz solo artist, teacher, and instructional book author is still on a mission to unlock more secrets of the fretboard. Luckily for us, in this episode, Sid shares a ton of playing approaches — everything from blues turnarounds to the "jazz/Bach overlap" to the cool lick taught to him by the late, great Lenny Breau — and teaches them here in detail. Hosted by JUDE GOLD, this episode is presented by GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE.

Did you know that more people are caring for an elderly loved one than are caring for a child? It's tough to be a caregiver for an elderly loved one and many of you have firsthand experience with caregiving. Here's a quote that says it all. “Everything is fine with your aging parent until it's not. Then everything falls apart.” This quote is from one of the co-founders of Homethrive, and we are lucky to have both gentlemen with us today. Dave Jacobs and David Greenberg are not only the co-founders they are co-CEOs of the company. Both men were previously executives in the health industry and personal experiences led them to develop Homethrive which will learn more about today.

In anticipation of the next episode of haunted houses, I present you with tales of haunted places and minds with Edwardian author, W.W. Jacobs, best known for his story, 'The Monkey's Paw'.
A.J. Jacobs is a self-described human guinea pig. The New York Times-bestselling author's curiosity has led him to write about some his wacky adventures, like reading the entire Encyclopedia Britannica for his memoir The Know-It-All: One Man's Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the World and to thank everyone involved in making his cup of coffee for his newest book Thanks a Thousand. Despite the creativity in his ideas, he says about 98% of them are terrible — so how does he find a good one? This week, A.J. and I talk about the work that goes into a creative idea, how to write when you hate writing, and the importance of gratitude throughout your journey.
A.J. Jacobs (@ajjacobs) (@ajjacobs) is a New York Times best-selling author who went on a quest to help build the biggest family tree in history, as detailed in his latest book It’s All Relative: Adventures Up and Down the World’s Family Tree. What We Discuss with A.J. Jacobs: What did A.J. Jacobs learn by following every rule of the Bible literally for one year? How much do you really know about your heritage? See how relating to one another on a family tree of millions is a step toward overcoming the ills of modern tribalism and race relations. Why acknowledging the bad as well as the good revealed by digging into family history is important. The disciplined daydreaming of A.J.’s brainstorming sessions and how we can cultivate our own big-picture thinking. And much more...
