Ontario's health care system has been battered by COVID-19, medical staff have been pushed to their limits, and there's a massive backlog of diagnostic and surgical procedures built up due to shutdowns. Has the time come for private health care to help fill the gaps? We ask: Alistair McGuire, head of the department of Health Policy at the London School of Economics; Colleen Flood, professor at the University of Ottawa and a University Research Chair in Health Law & Policy; and Sara Allin, assistant professor at the University of Toronto's Dalla Lana School of Public Health and the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation.

Several years ago, the Director of the London School of Economics, Monouche Shafik said, “In the past, jobs were about muscles. Now they're about brains, but in the future they'll be about the heart”. I believe that the future she referred to is now. The data shows us that people are leaving the workforce in droves due to extreme burnout and exhaustion. As a leader, there are things you can do to reverse the epic burnout your team or those you serve are facing.    It's time to put your energy towards cultivating a work culture that cares and appreciates your employees for more than just their results. I have five specific steps you can begin taking today that will let your team know they are seen, appreciated, and respected. These steps decrease uncertainty and increase trust. As trust increases, confidence increases which increases bottom lines. Show Notes: ritahyland.com/podcast Connect with Rita on Instagram @rita_hyland_coaching

My guest today is Dr. Jeremy Perigo from Dordt University.  He is the Director of Campus Ministries & Worship Arts and an associate professor at Dordt.  He is also a visiting lecturer at London School of Theology where he previously spent six years as head of theology, music, and worship programs.  Jeremy did his undergrad at Purdue University, then went on to do a Masters in Practical Theology at Regent University and a Doctorate at Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies.   My relationship with Jeremy goes back nearly 15 years as we both worked in deeply Charismatic contexts on things like 24-7 worship and prayer. Like me, Jeremy found that the experiential and mystical dimensions of Charismatic & Pentecostal spirituality fueled a deep desire to know God and understand his world via the life of the mind in more academic theology. In today's conversation, we discuss the link between our "guiding stories," the arts, music, film, & the liturgical practice of both the Church and the broader cultures we inhabit. How does the story we believe to be true about God & reality shape our practices of worship, but also how can our practices of worship shape the story we believe to be true about God & reality? ___________________________ TAGS: Jeremy Perigo, Lesslie Newbigin, Christ and Culture, theology of worship, liturgy, Cultural Liturgies, James K.A.

Domestic abuse increases following football games – and this increase is driven by alcohol-related abuse, a new study from the London School of Economics and Political Science finds. The research from the LSE's Centre for Economic Performance (CEP) reveals that the increase in domestic abuse occurs when football games are scheduled at midday or in the afternoon. There is no increase in domestic abuse when games kick-off after 7pm. The Legend talks to Dr. Ria Ivandic about the study's findings.  Read the full paper here VOTE FOR THE POD BOYZ!  Listen to The Legend talk to Dr. Ellen R.

Graduating from the London School of Economics in the mid 80's, Victor Haghani set sail on a career in the fixed income markets. Joining Salomon Brothers and assuming a position in bond portfolio analysis, Victor became steeped in the math of bond markets and derivatives and part of a team that sought to conquer markets with science. He was among those who joined John Meriwether in the founding of Long Term Capital Management in 1993 and as a Partner experienced directly both the early spectacular success and the ultimate failure of the fund.  Our conversation considers the lessons – on market liquidity, reflexivity, and trade sizing as well as the vulnerability of relative value trades to errant correlation assumptions.  By 2002, Victor took up the “the case of the missing billionaires”, wondering why there were so few now given that so many individuals had over a million dollars a century ago. He set out on a journey of inquiry focused on finding an asset allocation strategy that could preserve and grow wealth over time. Today, that work has come to life at Elm Partners, an asset management vehicle that Victor founded in 2011 and serves as CIO of. We discuss the premise of Elm – that passive indexation is generally effective but can be improved upon. In this context, Elm employs “dynamic index investing”, looking beyond market cap weighting to incorporate economic fundamentals like earnings yield and factors like value and momentum. With this approach, Victor and team hope to avoid busts that periodically occur while remaining exposed to the market such that wealth can compound over time.  I hope you enjoy this episode of the Alpha Exchange, my conversation with Victor Haghani.

And its not just the logistics sector at risk - hospitality, agriculture and the care sector have all reported labour problems in post-pandemic, post-Brexit Britain. So what exactly is the solution? Do we bring in more labour from abroad? Do we invest in training and developing British workers? Or are companies going to have to pay better wages and improve working conditions?

The rapprochement between Germany and Israel in the aftermath of the Holocaust is one of the most striking political developments of the twentieth century. German Chancellor Angela Merkel recently referred to it as a 'miracle'. But how did this 'miracle' come about? In this book, Lorena De Vita traces the contradictions and dilemmas that shaped the making of German-Israeli relations at the outset of the global Cold War. Examining well known events like the Suez Crisis, the Eichmann Trial, and the Six-Day War, Lorena De Vita's book Israelpolitik: German-Israeli Relations, 1949-69 (Manchester UP, 2021) adopts a 'pericentric' perspective on the Cold War era, drawing attention to the actions and experiences of minor players within the confrontation and highlighting the consequences of their political calculations. Israelpolitik takes two of the most interesting dimensions of the Cold War - the German problem and the Middle East conflict - and weaves them together, providing a bipolar history of German-Israeli relations in the aftermath of the Holocaust. Drawing upon sources from both sides of the Iron Curtain and of the Arab-Israeli conflict, the book offers new insights not only into the early history of German-Israeli relations, but also into the dynamics of the Cold War competition between the two German states, as each attempted to strengthen its position in the Middle East and in the international arena while struggling with the legacy of the Nazi past. Grant Golub is a PhD candidate in U.S. and international history at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

Ist die aktuelle Versorgungskrise in Grossbritannien eine Folge der Corona-Pandemie? Oder sind das die Auswirkungen des Brexit? Der Ökonom und Wirtschaftshistoriker Albrecht Ritschl, der selbst in London lebt, ordnet im «Tagesgespräch» die Situation ein. Schätzungsweise 100'000 Lastwagen-Fahrer fehlen derzeit in Grossbritannien. Und das hat Folgen: Leere Supermarktregale, lange Autoschlangen vor Tankstellen mit leeren Zapfsäulen. Nun soll das Militär bei der Benzinversorgung aushelfen. Was der Grund für die akuten Versorgungsengpässe ist, darüber wird heftig diskutiert. Sind es die Auswirkungen der Corona-Pandemie? Oder sind es die Folgen des EU-Austritts, der Ende 2020 erfolgt ist? Am Wochenende sagte der britische Premierminister Boris Johnson in einem BBC-Interview, die aktuelle Situation sei Teil der Übergangsphase zur neuen Post-Brexit-Wirtschaft. Was genau kommt da auf Grossbritannien noch zu? Wie soll diese Wirtschaft aussehen? Darüber haben wir mit dem Ökonom und Wirtschaftshistoriker Albrecht Ritschl gesprochen.

200 species a day currently go extinct. 80% of the people in the world live on less than $1/day. These are some of the facts that Alnoor underlines during this insightful episode.   Alnoor acquired a Masters Degree in Political Philosophy in London School of Economics and Political Science. He is one of the Co-Founders of Tierra Valiente ‘aka' Brave Earth, an alternative community in the Costa Rican Jungle where people get to exercise the atrophied muscle of living in community and serves as a center for applied cultural transition,  Alnoor's main area of focus is currently the following inquiry: How do we create transition infrastructure for post-capitalist reality?  Speaking with Alnoor, it becomes clear that our current neo-liberal capitalist socio-economic system is doomed to collapse. It's not a matter of “if”, but a matter of when and how.   That is not necessarily a bad thing given the current impact we are having on our planet and the lives of so many.   I met Alnoor at the Visionaries Immersion retreat in July 2021 where he was a keynote speaker, and I was blown away by how knowledgeable he was. I was also intrigued by his unique approach of not being quick to offer answers and solutions when discussing these important topics.   One thing is clear, he is not interested in more followers nor being anyone's savior. In fact he points to how our desire for quick solutions and saviors is a product of our culture having gone astray.   I'm very excited to share this episode with you. It might be the type of episode that you will either love or hate. I asked Alnoor some tough questions, including “don't you think you sound like a Mr. doom and gloom?” I can't wait for you to hear his answer.  I really appreciated this opportunity to reflect on the current state of our world and to consider that perhaps we chose to come here to this planet at this specific time to serve the world and humanity through what just might be the greatest transition in human history.   As Alnoor says, what archetypal role will you choose to play during this transition?  Happy listening! Subscribe to the Love Is Our Nature Blog: LoveIsOurNature.com Listen to this Podcast on: Spotify: http://bit.ly/LIONpodcast Apple Podcasts: http://bit.ly/LION-podcast​ Google Podcasts: http://bit.ly/LIONgcast Watch the Video Version on YouTube: http://bit.ly/LION-YT

This talk will use the lens of creative destruction and of the so-called Schumpeterian growth paradigm to: (i) address some main enigma in the history of economic growth; (ii) question common wisdoms on growth policy design; (iii) rethink the future of capitalism, and how to direct the power of creative destruction to achieve sustained, greener, and more inclusive prosperity. Philippe Aghion is a Professor at the College de France, at INSEAD, and at the London School of Economics, and a fellow of the Econometric Society and of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. His research focuses on the economics of growth. With Peter Howitt, he pioneered the so-called Schumpeterian Growth paradigm which was subsequently used to analyze the design of growth policies and the role of the state in the growth process. Much of this work is summarized in their joint book Endogenous Growth Theory (MIT Press, 1998) and The Economics of Growth (MIT Press, 2009), in his book with Rachel Griffith on Competition and Growth (MIT Press, 2006), and in his survey “What Do We Learn from Schumpeterian Growth Theory” (joint with U. Akcigit and P. Howitt.) In 2001, Philippe Aghion received the Yrjo Jahnsson Award of the best European economist under age 45, in 2009 he received the John Von Neumann Award, and in March 2020 he shared the BBVA “Frontier of Knowledge Award” with Peter Howitt for “developing an economic growth theory based on the innovation that emerges from the process of creative destruction.”

Connson Locke: Making Your Voice Heard Connson Locke is Professorial Lecturer in Management at the London School of Economics, where she teaches Leadership, Organizational Behaviour, and Negotiation and Decision Making. She has over 30 years experience as an educator, coach, and consultant working all around the world. Her highly popular Guardian Masterclass ‘Developing your presence, power and influence' regularly sells out. Connson is the recipient of a number of teaching awards from the London School of Economics. She's also the author of Making Your Voice Heard: How to Own Your Space, Access Your Inner Power, and Become Influential*. In this conversation, Connson and I explore the challenging situation that many professional experience: speaking up. We discuss several key tactics that Connson has surfaced in her research to do this more effectively. Plus, we highlight several of the lessons Connson has discovered in her own experience that will help us (and others) do this with more success. Key Points Managing your negative emotions can help create movement for you. Reflecting or journaling is a key starting point. Change your attitude about failure by framing a growth mindset. Move away from repetition and towards deliberate practice. Instead of focusing on power difference, zero in on the other person's role in helping you achieve a greater good. Plan free time around learning a new skill or helping others instead of watching Netflix or sitting on the beach.

Then, you'll hear about this week's podcast picks being featured on our newsletter.About our curator, Maribel Quezada Smith, from her website:A few years ago, I discovered I was living my life for other people instead of myself. That's when I started down this journey of self-discovery and empowerment. This journey confirmed a fear I had long avoided confronting, the fear that I didn't completely belong anywhere, and I had to choose a cultural "side" to succeed in life. Since then, thanks to a decent amount of soul searching, I have realized I no longer have to choose a cultural side, I simply have to embrace my own journey as a Mexican immigrant woman living in the United States, who loves Hip Hop and Cumbia. All of this self-discovery combined with my 15-plus years as a professional in video production and podcasting, inspired my passion for creating stories with meaning in order to satisfy our human desire for purpose and connection. (Which is how my podcast DIFERENTE was born!) Today, I help entrepreneurs, startups and growing brands build deeper connections with their ideal customers through meaningful video and audio content.This week's interview: Arielle Vetro. Here's her bio: I'm a Canadian-Italian writer and podcast producer based in London, England. I'm passionate about cooking, community organizing and exploring the mystifying psychology of people who "just don't have a sweet tooth". I moved to the U.K. in 2017 to pursue a MSc in Social Policy and Planning from the London School of Economics. After graduating, I worked in the urban design and innovation field researching the social and cultural impacts of Smart City technologies. I honed an approach to city innovation that places people - and their real needs - squarely in the centre.

The Picky Eagle: How Democracy and Xenophobia Limited U. S. Territorial Expansion (Cornell UP, 2020) explains why the United States stopped annexing territory by focusing on annexation's domestic consequences, both political and normative. It describes how the U.S. rejection of further annexations, despite its rising power, set the stage for twentieth-century efforts to outlaw conquest. In contrast to conventional accounts of a nineteenth-century shift from territorial expansion to commercial expansion, Richard W. Maass argues that U.S. ambitions were selective from the start. By presenting twenty-three case studies, Maass examines the decision-making of U.S. leaders facing opportunities to pursue annexation between 1775 and 1898. U.S. presidents, secretaries, and congressmen consistently worried about how absorbing new territories would affect their domestic political influence and their goals for their country. These leaders were particularly sensitive to annexation's domestic costs where xenophobia interacted with their commitment to democracy: rather than grant political representation to a large alien population or subject it to a long-term imperial regime, they regularly avoided both of these perceived bad options by rejecting annexation. As a result, U.S. leaders often declined even profitable opportunities for territorial expansion, and they renounced the practice entirely once no desirable targets remained. In addition to offering an updated history of the foundations of U.S. territorial expansion, The Picky Eagle adds important nuance to previous theories of great-power expansion, with implications for our understanding of U.S. foreign policy and international relations.

What is grand strategy? What does it aim to achieve? And what differentiates it from normal strategic thought--what, in other words, makes it "grand"? In answering these questions, most scholars have focused on diplomacy and warfare, so much so that "grand strategy" has become almost an equivalent of "military history." The traditional attention paid to military affairs is understandable, but in today's world it leaves out much else that could be considered political, and therefore strategic. It is in fact possible to consider, and even reach, a more capacious understanding of grand strategy, one that still includes the battlefield and the negotiating table while expanding beyond them. Just as contemporary world politics is driven by a wide range of non-military issues, the most thorough considerations of grand strategy must consider the bases of peace and security--including gender, race, the environment, and a wide range of cultural, social, political, and economic issues.

If we are to ensure that there's no more than a 1.5 degrees centigrade increase in global warming, the International Energy Agency recently stated that oil exploration must stop. A few countries have heeded that warning but the vast majority have not. The Climate Question hears from two nations – one already rich from oil, the other poor and yet to benefit from recent oil finds – about why they are continuing to explore. But, even for those who are following the IEA's advice, will stopping be straightforward or might hurdles still lie in wait?

This week, we're excited to welcome Reem Kassis to Salt + Spine, the podcast on stories behind cookbooks.Born in Jerusalem, Reem moved to the United States at 17 to attend university—and she was determined not to end up in the kitchen. After receiving an MBA from Wharton Business School and an Master's in cultural psychology from the London School of Economics, Reem spent time working at major corporations from McKinsey to The World Economic Forum.But when Reem had her first daughter, Yasneem, she took the opportunity to slow down and reflect on the legacy that she would leave her children. And that's when Reem pivoted. In 2017, Reem published her first, incredibly successful cookbook, The Palestinian Table,‍Despite her first book's success, Reem didn't expect to write a second cookbook—but her passion for sharing the complicated history of Arab cuisine pushed her to begin researching her latest book, The Arabesque Table. The Arabesque Table is a rich history of Arab food. Reem brings her cultural knowledge and the tireless research she's done to bear on the recipes within the book, bridging the past and present with classic recipes and contemporary interpretations of favorites.Reem joined us remotely for this week's episode to #TalkCookbooks. Stick around to hear some of Reem's thoughts on how to thoughtfully credit and research a recipe, her path to cookbook authorship, and how she thinks food media could improve.

Sheep in Wolf's Clothing (abbreviated as SiWC) started life in 2020 with an ambition  to become a leading brewery specialising in the production of low-alcohol and non-alcoholic beers and to open a series of accessible, inclusive pubs, which reflect the communities they serve.Long term, they are committed to proactively employing people from disadvantaged groups and those underrepresented in the workforce today, wanting to run a successful company that ensures they give back to their customer communities - being a “local” pub in every sense of the word.In this episode, we chat to founder, Matty Dixon, a former chemical engineer and rugby player turned entrepreneur.  Matty attended the London School of Business before taking part in AB InBev's graduate scheme, after which, he and his scientific friend - John Chadwick - turned their hand to creating beers between 0.5% and 5% using a variety of initiative methods to bring massive flavours to little beers.Not only is Matty engaging, witty and evidently has a the entrepreneurial spirit; he openly talks about his ongoing battle with depression - something which saw him take to the stage of London's TedX conference in 2019 to share his personal experiences of living with depression and why he believes talking about it is crucial to management of the state. Matty believes that the condition is misunderstood and as such is not treated as well as it could be within society, something that flows over into his business and how he operates with his team.THIS WEEK'S SHOW IS SPONSORED BY...BrewMan Version 7 - The brand new web-based version of the UK's number one brewery management software, used by over 250 breweries.BrewMan V7 has been completely rebuilt to combine the features and functions that have been developed alongside their brewery customers for twenty years with new modern interfaces and intuitive controls that can be accessed through your browser on any device.To find out more, visit the website at premiersystems.comGet ahead in the brewing and beer business...Follow us on Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | LinkedInVisit our website hopforward.beer

Thanks to Covid, coughing in public has joined the ranks of socially-unacceptable behaviours. Anecdotally there seems to have been a decline in coughing in theatre audiences since Covid came on the scene. This suggests that loud, irritating throat clearances may not have been necessary physical responses to obstructions after all. Emma talks to Dr Kim Dienes from Swansea University about the social side of coughing and tips for suppressing that irritating tickle. Pakistani-American author Rafia Zakaria has written a new book called Against White Feminism. A critique of 'whiteness within feminism' she says feminism has become a brand, not a movement. She wants to 'take it back.' Working on behalf of domestic violence victims as a lawyer and human rights activist for years, she says race is the biggest obstacle to true solidarity among women. Rafia joins Emma to discuss. It is understood that the first female Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Cressida Dick, has been offered two more years in the role. Both the home secretary, Priti Patel, and the London mayor, Sadiq Khan, are said to support plans for her to continue to lead London's police force. But seven influential people who say they have been subjected to Met Police corruption and incompetence have signed an open letter in the Daily Mail today calling for her removal. Among the signatories were Baroness Doreen Lawrence, Lady Brittan and the former Conservative MP Harvey Proctor, whose home was raided in March 2015 by Operation Midland detectives, in response to false allegations of historic child abuse made by Carl Beech - who is now in prison for 18 years for perverting the course of justice and fraud. Emma asks Harvey why he wants Cressida Dick's resignation. There are 7.9 billion people living on the planet. But why is human population discussed so little when it comes to the climate crisis? That's a question listeners Sue and Martin want answers to, and that Tim Dyson, Emeritus Professor of Population Studies at the London School of Economics is going to help untangle. He talks to Emma about the facts behind global population growth, the trends in family size, and why having fewer children isn't going to help alleviate the immediate pressures of the climate crisis. Edie Eckhart is 11 years old, from Bridlington in Yorkshire and has cerebral palsy. Like a lot of other 11 year olds this September, she's starting at secondary school. Edie is the main character in a new children's book, ‘The Amazing Edie Eckhart' written by comedian Rosie Jones, who tells Emma why she wanted to create a young disabled heroine.

Rebecca Seal is a recovering people pleaser. In her teens and early twenties, she made choices that were based on what she thought other people expected of her. Whether those perceptions were true or not, Rebecca had no idea, but she did feel pressured to get into a prestigious university. She was an excellent student which enabled her to land a spot at the London School of Economics (LSE) to study international relations, which she found challenging for several reasons. At eighteen, Rebecca did not know what she wanted to do, had never been away from home, and was no longer the big fish in a small pond. It was unsettling and painful.  Upon graduation, Rebecca attempted to secure employment with an NGO or the UN, but she could not even get an interview. She returned home to Oxford and waited tables. She felt horribly stuck at the time, but today believes it was a good experience. The lessons learned from the hospitality industry made her a better team player and enabled her to grow as a manager and leader. Rebecca still wanted to pursue her interest in international relations so she returned to London to get her master's at Kings College. In the middle of her program, she got a job at the Observer newspaper, which became her first professional role as a journalist. As she started there thinking she would work as a foreign correspondent, Rebecca became the paper's food writer and editor for six years. She then departed the paper during a tough economic period and decided to try her hand at being a freelance writer. Twelve years later, Rebecca has authored nine cookbooks and continues to be a freelance journalist mostly writing about food and drink. Additionally, she had the opportunity to host a weekly TV show on Sunday mornings about brunch and related topics for 4 years. Six years ago she had an idea for a book about how to survive working alone, because she was feeling alone as a freelancer: SOLO: How To Work Alone (And Not Lose Your Mind).  In this week's Work From The Inside Out podcast, learn more about Rebecca's  journey: Rebecca gives talks and workshops, as well as writing articles, on coping with solitary working, to all sorts of people around the world.  She continues to write and publish cookbooks, and to work for UK newspapers.

Imagine a day when alternative protein is no longer alternative. Welcome to the moonshot for meatless meat.When it comes to meat, the news is both good and bad. On the one hand, alternative protein innovation is at an all-time high, with ever more options stocked at grocery stores across the country. However, despite the cultural ascension and mainstreaming of all things vegan & plant-based, the unfortunate reality is that globally, meat consumption is actually the highest it's ever been. And according to the UN, global meat production is projected to double by 2050.So what gives?To address this conundrum and bring us up to speed on the cultivated and plant-based meat state of affairs, I'm once again joined by my friend & resident expert on all things meatless meat, Bruce Friedrich—returning for his third appearance on the show (catch RRP 286 & 402if you missed them).Graduating magna cum laude from Georgetown Law with additional graduate degrees from Johns Hopkins and the London School of Economics, Bruce is the founder & president of The Good Food Institute, an international non-profit focused on facilitating the reimagination of meat production. He is also a TED Fellow, a Y Combinator alumnus, and a popular food innovation speaker at places like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, and MIT. Bruce has been profiled in The New York Times and many other prominent outlets and has penned op-eds for The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, Wired, and many other publications.Today we pick up where we left off almost three years ago to assess the current state of the union on all things alternative protein.We discuss advances in both plant-based and cultivated meat. We review how the latest technological breakthroughs in fermentation, 3D printing and funghi (or mycoprotein) harvesting are changing the game. And we cover the political and regulatory landscape that frames the alternative protein movement—and the policy changes we need to realize a better food system for all.In addition we discuss the many problems solved by a global pivot to alternative proteins—including zoonotic disease, greenhouse gas emissions, resource reduction, and animal suffering.Overall, this is an optimistic forecast of food system innovation—how technology, urgency, and popular demand are rapidly converging to create healthy, sustainable, and compassionate solutions to help solve our current food, health, and environmental crises.To read more click here.
