On this episode of the Post Podcast, Fort Hays State University president Tisa Mason and chief communications officer Scott Cason share details of the upcoming FHSU Media Tour. Transcript: EDITORS NOTE: Transcripts are provided by an automated service and are not verified for accuracy. James Bell Fort Hays State University will kick off their media tour next week from the university president Tisa Mason stops by along with chief communications officer Scott Cason to talk about that and more on this episode of the Post Podcast. Tisa Mason Last year, when we went out and we talked to people, we realized so much more value was developing working relationships with member of the media, even at the Kansas Board of Regents. Now I see some of the people I talked to last year, I have those relationships. So that is really great. And of course, always sharing information on Fort Hays impact in Kansas and beyond, is one of the great joys. And, you know, it's something we have to work hard on, quite honestly, we have to draw attention to us. And that's not part of our culture, we tend to be more modest. But we've got a lot to be proud of. And it's it's really a privilege to be able to tell that story. And we always we learned a lot last year going out and seeing how media consolidation and how that is impacting communities. And, and the the, it just was incredible to hear stories of what's going on, especially in the smaller rural communities. But even in the urban institutions, the consolidation and what that means and trying to find somebody open to even have a conversation with or going into newspaper and seeing that they're printing the newspapers for a large area because everything's consolidated. So we're always excited about identifying opportunities for also our experts, our faculty that are doing extraordinary work, to assist in news reporting. So when we get to have those relationships, then we connect everyone together. And that makes us better. James Bell Yeah, truly. Now, let's talk about some specifics. I think you're kicking this thing off pretty locally right here. Oh, goodness. Oh, less than a week, isn't it? Tisa Mason Yes. Yes. And always we start right here in this studio. James Bell Oh, is this the first one? This is the first one. Let's call this a warm up. Because as everybody knows, I'm not shy to say that I'm not a professional broadcaster. I just kind of hear doing the radio thing. The case kickoff. Exactly. But we're gonna be in Great Bend, McPherson, Pratt, and then kicking down into Oklahoma. The business Oh, next week. Tisa Mason Yeah, that's just Monday. Well, that's just James Bell Monday. Yes. Oh, my goodness. You're gonna be dreads a lot of road time. Are you gonna be flying those spots? Tisa Mason No, we are driving driving it. Oh, yeah. The real American experience. We're getting in that car and we're driving from community to community. James Bell Very cool. Very cool. Man. You're I mean, you're hitting everywhere. You're getting down to the Wichita, Kansas City. You mentioned you're popping up to Nebraska, McCook, Nebraska looks like and then of course, dodge sitting gods in the Garden City. Those are always really fun, aren't they? Tisa Mason Yes, we love that. And we love that in Garden City. We have our Higher Education Learning Center there as well, which we've had for decades to help tell the higher education story first and the Fort Hays story second, and really trying to drive people to understand the value of why a higher education post K 12 is really important today. Scott Cason And two of those stops, the one in pride and the one in Garden City will highlight our partnerships with the local community colleges there. James Bell Go Pratt, I don't know if you guys know this. I was actually I'm a I'm a proud alum. I went to community college there. And before I came to four days, and really they are the ones that steered me this way. I had never been to Hayes before. Well, before enrolling, to be honest. Tisa Mason No, for decades, we were among the first to do the articulation agreement. And we have always valued our Community College and our tech partnerships. We've done some really unique things with them. And we think that's really important. So yeah, go Pratt, and shout out to all the rest of the community and tech colleges in Kansas. Love it. James Bell So let's talk some specifics about what you're going to be talking about on these media, media tours. You know, I think it's no secret. There's since the pandemic, there's been a lot of changes, we've seen what's going on in Emporia and you know, kind of trying to rebalance these things. And, you know, I wonder if you want to talk about how that's going to be part of those conversations and how this strategic plan is going to be brought up as you guys are out and about. Tisa Mason So of course we're aligned with the Kansas Board of Regents strategic plan on building a future and theirs is built on family you know, and affordability which is something that we are the star at and continue to drive forward. Because access is the first thing that you need to go to coloriages is the ability to open that door and we have flown it open for decades, you know businesses and how we create jobs and provide a talent pipeline, particularly since the pandemic hiring employees is an every call conversation in every community. And so how we continue to fuel that and provide an educated talent pipeline is really important. And then economic prosperity. How are we driving? How are we making an economic impact in communities? How are we bringing value with all kinds of outreach centers that we do in communities. And so that's really important, that's tied to our strategic plan as well. Then, of course, we at Fort Hays talk a lot about academic excellence, because that's really important. Our value is not just about our low price point, but it's also about the high quality. And so we're constantly investing and professional opportunity for our faculty, encourage their dialogue with business industry, so that we're keeping all that connected. And then resources and infrastructure, look anywhere across the state of Kansas, and you will find the best buildings and experiences at Fort Hays State University. James Bell Absolutely. And you know, what I like about kind of the strategic plan is, is your guys's vision of growth and how to actually accomplish that. And one of the things we've talked about previously in the segment is the the I don't remember the name of the plan, but basically the in state tuition that's offered across seven or eight states. Yeah, the 1313 states Oh, I was under pending. Yep. Tisa Mason We call it our 13 state regional tuition, program. And we're really excited. Of course, we don't have final numbers yet, because we're still waiting till the end of the month to get those. But early indicators with our first year out, is sending us really strong success in Colorado and Oklahoma, as first place winners for increasing those students. I've had I've had fun talking to are in states or out of state students from those 13 states last night at a dinner in my house with our VIP students. And we had a couple of students from Texas, like, how did you like that discount on your tuition this year? And they're like, We loved it. We're so excited. Thank you. So that was really fun. James Bell That's very cool. And you know, it really I think that helps probably in the community and global engagement piece as well, because you're getting people and folks, students from a larger geographic region, which then I think is going to just feed into the I don't know the stature, maybe a Fort Hays crossed the Midwest. Tisa Mason Yeah. And more importantly, we know when since that program is only for on campus students, we know when students come to Fort Hays, and then they do internships and practicums in the community, they're most likely to stay in Kansas. And that feeds the talent pipeline. So it's Win win, it's win for the students. It's win for the university and for our community in our state. James Bell Yeah. And there's lots of different ways I think you're going to be talking about on this tour, right about specifically some areas where the impact is very noticeable, like, for example, K through 12. Education, I think we're a huge driver of teachers out and across Kansas and beyond, right? Tisa Mason Yes. And really important. I think, over we've had about 200 students in teacher ed, every year, over 85% of them end up teaching in Kansas, and around half of those are in western Kansas, and often in rural areas. And that's something we work hard. And I know our nursing program. Also, if you're going to go to Fort Hays, you're going to do some practicums and some experiences in rural hospitals, because we want you to know that and understand that we really want to incentivize and encourage people to stay in rural Kansas. Yeah, James Bell yeah. I love that. And you mentioned at the top of the program here, the difficulty in hiring, and I think that is especially true in these rural school districts where, you know, you've got to pull in people that maybe aren't native to the area and are kind of questioning like, why would I live in this little town over anywhere else that I can live? And I think that's gonna help but to social workers, also a big important part of this, right? Tisa Mason Yeah. And they have been one of our strategic enrollment planning fancy word to say, how are we going to grow? And that's where we've put some of our dollars because we know the community needs social workers in many areas. And it's been a huge winner for us. Since its inception in 2015. We have expanded from 100 undergraduates to over 300. The Masters of Social Work, which is brand new to us had inaugural class of 52 students and grew to 85 students in just one year. And now a has a waiting list. Wow. We're really excited about the placements. Just last year and 21. The department placed over 90 students in clinics and other social service areas in 24 Kansas communities with 90% of that, or about 90% of those placements in rural areas. Again, really focusing on serving rural Kansas. We have about a hunt There needs students enrolled in practicum field experiences right now. And we're just really excited with our success and with the growth. James Bell Yeah, that's, that's awesome. This is another thing that I keep hearing about that I think is a really probably impacting a lot of people in ways that they don't understand or they don't know maybe don't understand, but don't necessarily see in their day to day lives. And that's the criminal justice program here. And the Regional de escalation Center, which you guys have been a huge part of getting set up. And I believe that's, that's up and running now. Right? Tisa Mason It is. And another shout out to Senator Moran, who helped us with some of the funding, we received $2.75 million in federal funding to fuel the center. We're doing all kinds of training both online and in person. We have delivered 20 programs to agencies in Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado. And right now, law enforcement agencies in Kansas, Nebraska and Florida, are scheduled to start completing online training created by Fort Hays and our fantastic teaching Innovation and Learning Technologies Group that can take learning to a new level online. James Bell Yeah, I love that. And then there's one other one we want to talk about. And this is this one is something I love. I think it's so cool. And it's been you know, I think it's becoming more and more prevalent. We saw the story even last year here in Hays, cybersecurity, you got some big achievements out of the Institute and technology department there, right? Yeah, infirm. Tisa Mason Informatics is the academic department. And we were so blessed by the legislature with half a million dollars and dedicated funding to create what we're calling the cyber Institute and technology incubator. So we're just ramping up right now. The first thing you're going to see here is the development of some really cool micro internships. So our students can go in sometimes I'm like, virtually, and sometimes in reality, physical body, and they can go into small businesses, small and medium sized businesses can lose their whole business with a cyber attack. So our students can go in and do web security evaluation, security vulnerability reports, clean up data for businesses, these smaller businesses don't have the resources that the large industries do. And so that's really important for us to make sure that we are supporting the grocers and other businesses, and the small area. So software testing and compliance of reports, this is going to be a great opportunity for our students to get hands on learning and training. And work on those soft skills as well. As well as support the small and medium sized businesses will be also then kicking off in years two and three incubators specifically to grow more businesses that can help small businesses and medium sized businesses with these issues in partnership with our outstanding Small Business Development Center throughout the state. So it's going to have I think, deep ramifications. And I'm so grateful for our faculty and informatics, who are leading this charge. James Bell Yeah, love that. All of these things, I think, you know, they're going to be really continuing to impact the folks out here in western Kansas and beyond. And I'm, I bet it really is just so exciting to go out and share more of these details with those, especially those young folks, as they're considering, like, what am I doing with my future? Where can I go and cybersecurity I think is in particular one of those areas that there's just unlimited potential out there in the field. Tisa Mason Yeah, we're actually having some exploratory conversations on we do a lot of Gen Ed, concurrent credit in high school so that they can take college bearing credit courses while they're in high school and informatics. We'd like to get a little bit into working with some of the high schools and partnerships so that the students can start getting college bearing credit in this in this information computer science area. James Bell Very cool. Get head start in the future. Yeah, love it. When the other last thoughts before we go, Tisa Mason I just want to say it's such a joy to be in this community. Our freshmen and our students have returned on campus today are high energy, they're loving haze, they're loving the campus. And I want to thank everybody who's coming out to our volleyball games, our basketball basketball is started but soccer and football and thank you everyone for being part of our community as we are a part of yours.
This week I catch up with overall fab and chatty Nevada McPherson who is a writer and teacher within Georgia. A huge fan of cinema and character driven stories she's taught and written her own work throughout her career. Including her book "poser" which is part of her larger series! So when we caught up we of course discussed that but also delved into Film noir, why we love it why we like revenge as a topic and how easy it is to get trapped in the space of not wanting to use an idea in case a better format for it comes along.You can check out her work below!https://twitter.com/nevadamcpherso3http://www.nevada-mcpherson.com/Ituneshttps://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/yelling-at-concrete/id1238765054Spotifyhttps://open.spotify.com/show/3T2OhYE07edgaBDXrm86saAcasthttps://shows.acast.com/yellingatconcreteYou can support the show and Graham by visitingwww.instagram.com/yellingatconcretewww.yellingatconcrete.bigcartel.comwww.ko-fi.com/yellingatconcrete Hosted on Acast.

McPherson's wife Joanne, who as First Lady of Michigan State University founded Safe Place, the first shelter at a university to provide support for victims of domestic violence and stalking, died in June.“She was so dedicated to Safe Place and so committed to having it work. Of course, now after all these decades really, it's worked very well. She always had an idea, like when we got here, Beaumont Tower's bells weren't ringing, and they hadn't rung for about a year. She said, ‘What's this? The Beaumont Tower bells need to ring.' In short time, the bells were ringing, and they've rung ever since. Safe Place and the Beaumont Tower bells, and the signs at campus entrances were a couple of her accomplishments.“When we got here, for whatever reason, the signs entering campus were a set of wire structures and they looked pretty bad. Joanne never wanted things to look bad. They're now stone and permanent, and they look really good. They've been that way since about 1994, and that was Joanne saying ‘What's this?'"McPherson talks about growing up in West Michigan and always knowing he would attend MSU, just like all his siblings did. And he says “MSU opened up the world to me.” Then a stint in the Peace Corps inspired his lifetime of work on international issues. He describes working in both the Ford and Reagan White Houses. He was working for Bank of America in San Francisco after the Reagan years, and that's when the MSU presidency opened.“Running Michigan State was a dream I never really expected to even have an opportunity to do. You can imagine what my seven brothers and sisters living in West Michigan thought. By that time, unfortunately, my father and mother had passed away. I think often, and certainly did back then, how sad it was that they weren't around because, for my father especially, this would have been special.”McPherson talks about a couple of his accomplishment he's most proud of like bringing the Detroit College of Law to MSU and beginning the conversations that led to MSU's presence on Grand Rapids' Medical Mile.“The leader of this effort was Judge Dick Suhrheinrich. Without Dick Suhrheinrich we wouldn't have a law school. He is really a grand man with enormous capability. We did put that law school together. First, there was some thought it might be in Detroit, which wasn't optimal. There were some issues and ultimately it came here as an independent school.“They had some real self-identity that they were intent to protect, which I thought was reasonable. The agreement that I had with them was I would never push for there to be a closer affiliation. They may decide they wanted it, and that may be appropriate at some time, but it's not going to be MSU that pushes a closer affiliation. Before I left, they came to me and said, ‘We want a closer affiliation,' and now, after several years, it's called the Michigan State University College of Law. “The medical school idea came together in the years after I left. In my mind, the key decision and key meeting - there were several; anything like this has several key meetings - was a meeting I had with Rich DeVos in the hanger in the Grand Rapids airport where I laid out how we wanted to do this. Basically, DeVos said, ‘It's a good idea.' and it wouldn't have happened without DeVos' important key intervention in the years afterwards it unfolded.”Talk about APLU and its mission.“We're very aggressive and active in Washington on appropriations for universities, and we have a deep commitment to student degree completion, to equity, and to minority students having the same percentages of graduation rates as majority students. I'm pleased that current MSU President Stanley is on the APLU board. “Sam is a guy who we at APLU have always seen as a guy we could go to to get things done. During the pandemic, his medical expertise was invaluable. The presidents of this organization from around the country get together, and Sam was a person who could serve with real expertise and talk about the problems we were all having. Sam has always been a go-to guy. For him to come to Michigan State was just outstanding for Michigan State and for him.”What concerns you about higher education's future? What are you hopeful about? What keeps you up at night? What are some challenges and opportunities moving forward?“We need to continue to increase our graduation rates and decrease the time it takes to earn a degree. We've got to have more students graduate and do so in less time. Of course, there are cost considerations. Legislatures provide a substantially lower percentage of the cost than they once did. The Pell Grant money is helpful, and we've pushed hard for more Pell money. “There's this whole set of equity, graduation, and cost issues that, of course, I could spend all your program on because I'm so immersed in them that are of deep concern. On the other hand, there are some successes. I looked at ALPU numbers over the last 10 years under Department of Education data, and our Hispanic students over the last 10 years have grown 70 percent. The numbers for Black students haven't moved that much. The Hispanic student population has grown.“These are the kinds of issues we need to continue to really grapple with and make progress on now. We know how to graduate students better than we did. We've got the technology. I know these are important issues for Michigan State. Graduation rates here are quite high, but I know there's a commitment to make them higher.”What do you hope your legacy is as president of MSU, or do you not even worry about that kind of thing?“Well, I think if you worry about it too much, it's a mistake. There were certainly some key things that I'm very proud of. To me, ultimately, what a university presidency needs to be about is what kind of education students get. Michigan State happily and successfully educates many students, so I start there.“The law school is important, and so is beginning the work on the medical school in Grand Rapids. This place is so complex. There are so many things that I learned and was part of. As I've said several times, every project has many fathers and mothers and many contributors, so I was proud to lead Michigan State for those years.”MSU Today airs Saturdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 5 a.m. on WKAR News/Talk and Sundays at 8 p.m. on 760 WJR.

Today's woman grew up in a lower class area of China. But as she grew, her status changed due to her father's success. Even though her father became successful with much hard work, he lacked a real education – something he insisted his daughter receive. So, at age 17 she left China and came to America as an exchange student. Here in new home, she felt very alone but she focused on making good grades and learning all she could. Her US host family helped her find her direction into accounting and finance. As her career unfolded, she became an executive in several industries. Today she serves as a top leader in one of the largest ground handling & aviation services companies in North America. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Ying Mcpherson.

No me digáis que soy malo por llamar al Renault 14 el “coche pera”… Porque fue una idea, mala idea, de la propia Renault. Muchas cosas salieron mal para que este coche, sucesor del R12 y mucho mejor que él, no triunfase… y para que nunca viese la luz su versión coupé. No nació para competir con el Volkswagen Golf, sino con la idea de superarlo. Ahí es nada. Pero esa era la meta del director de Renault, Bernard Hanon quien no escatimó recursos. Renault en los años 70. La gama de Renault en 1970 gozaba de un gran éxito, pero excepción hecha del Renault 5, nacido en 1972, se había quedado anticuada. Hablamos de los R4, R6, R16 y del R12 y sus derivados deportivos, los R15 y R17, sin olvidar que al R8 llegó hasta el 71 en Francia y 1976 en España y México. En el segmento medio, el de mayores ventas, el R12 ya era un dinosaurio, aunque se vendía bien y tenía mucho prestigio… y tuvo algunas segundas vidas como Dacia y en mercado de América de sur. ¡Más madera! Había que pararle los pies, mejor dicho, las ruedas, al VW Golf y a todo lo se le venía y desde Renault se pusieron en marcha. Hanon pidió a Robert Broyer, diseñador del R12, que diseñase su sustituto, pero pensando en el Golf, es decir, con dos volúmenes. Y como Renault tenía prisa hizo algo hoy en día muy frecuente, pero que no lo era tanto en esos años: Llegar a un acuerdo con una marca rival, concretamente Peugeot, para desarrollar un moderno motor que acabaría siendo usado más por Peugeot que por Renault. Recibimiento frío. Hemos tenido en esta serie de coches incomprendidos coches como el #Fiat Multipla o el AMC Pacer, coches que causaron rechazo desde el principio… pero no dejaron indiferente. Eso de que se hable de ti, aunque sea mal, también pasa en los coches. El R14 no causó rechazo, fue peor, causó cierta indiferencia. El R14, incluso por dentro, a muchos les parecía “demasiado moderno” a otros, simplemente soso… como era el caso de su salpicadero. El ”coche-pera”. Y entonces a un “brillante” -con comillas- ejecutivo-creativo publicitario se le ocurrió una idea extraordinaria: Comparar al R14, que se vendía en un verde “pera” con una pera. ¿Con que objetivo? No se sabe. A lo mejor ese día este creativo no se había tomado su medicación, pero lo cierto es que esta publicidad salió adelante. ¿Y qué pasó? Que se retiró enseguida. Pero el daño estaba hecho. Los clientes, no veían esa forma de pera como una solución de diseño destacable, más bien lo interpretaban como una prueba de falta de solidez y seriedad. Al final se quedó con el mote, que rebasó Francia para llegar a otros países. Convivió cuatro años con el R12, al que apenas superaba en ventas y antes de siete años fue sustituido por el R11 y luego por el 9. Su produjeron en algo más de seis años casi un millón de coches… ¿Puede considerarse en fracaso? Hombre si te digo que del VW Golf I se han fabricado 7 millones de unidades, desde 1974 hasta 2009, cuando cesó su fabricación en Sudáfrica, pues sí. Todo es relativo. España: Más de lo mismo. La vida del R14 en España fue todavía más breve, pues no apareció hasta 1976, cuatro años más tarde, pero eso sí, era Made in Spain. A pesar de los esfuerzos de la marca, el R14 lo tuvo peor en España, un mercado mucho menos maduro y donde los coches de 2 volúmenes, pese al Golf, se perciben como “menos coche” que un tres volúmenes. ¡Hubo un coupé! El proyecto 121, que era la clave interna del R14, contemplaba una versión coupé, parecida a un Hunting Break o Shooting Brake, como más os guste… “coupé de caza” para entendernos. En 1974 François Wasservogel, propuso este concepto de un "shooting brake" basado en el R14 que entonces se estaba industrializando. Se piense en Ligier para hacer esta carrocería, pero suceden dos cosas: Una la crisis de petróleo no invita a lanzar coupés, aunque sean modestos. La otra, que se acaban de remodelar los R15 y R17… así que iba haber una rivalidad interna. Se decide dejar el proyecto para más adelante, pero el escaso éxito del R14 aconseja no liarla más. Una curiosidad, para este modelo se preveía la denominación R9, por ser impar, como los otros coupés y de una numeración inferior, que debía dar idea que se situaba por debajo de los otros modelos deportivos. Conclusión. ¿Mereció este modelo semejante “maltrato” por parte de los compradores? Pues sin duda no. Honestamente, creo que no era un producto redondo que, si tren delantero McPherson no estaba bien resuelto, que faltaban versiones más prestacionales que sí tuvieron sus rivales, entre ellas el Golf GTi, que la estética no cautivo y que la publicidad fue en error de bulto… pero, dicho todo esto, no era un mal coche, ni mucho menos. Y, en mi opinión, en este momento, precisamente porque no tuvo éxito, porque se fabricaron, pocas unidades y se mantienen aún menos, es una buena pieza de colección.

Lo hemos contado muchas veces, incluso hicimos un vídeo al respecto: La suspensión hidroneumática era magnífica. Y la pregunta es obvia: si era tan buena, ¿por qué ya no se usa? ¿Se puede decir que fracasó? Ya prometí este vídeo en el que hicimos titulado “Suspensión hidroneumática, ¡te echamos de menos!” en el que hablamos, largo y tendido, de la suspensión hidroneumática de Citroën… porque hubo otras. Y es que mi idea era contarlo en ese mismo vídeo… pero era demasiado largo. Ventajas únicas. Cuando apareció la suspensión neumática la diferencia con la competencia era abismal. ¡Todavía había rivales que usaban ejes rígido y ballestas! Pero vamos a centrarnos en las ventajas más importantes: -Altura constante. -Confort sin igual. -Estabilidad sin igual. Los inconvenientes. Pero no todo era ventajas, también tenían sus inconvenientes básicamente dos: -Complejidad mecánica. -Precio elevado. Cada vez más cerca. La suspensión hidroneumática no dejo de mejorar. Pero las suspensiones clásicas lo hicieron todavía más. Es cierto que había más margen, porque como os decía la hidroneumática competía al principio con coches de ejes rígidos, ballestas o como mucho muelles helicoidales o barras de torsión. Geometría de suspensión. ¿Sabéis lo que es? Es el movimiento que describen las ruedas al subir o al bajar. La llegada de las suspensiones McPherson, sobre todo al eje delantero o las multilink o multibrazo o como las queráis llamar al eje trasero, no arregló el problema de la altura constante, pero sí los inconvenientes que causaba. Muelles progresivos. Los muelles progresivos o los sistemas de flexibilidad progresiva sí que solucionan o atenúan en gran parte el problema de la variación de altura con la carga. Son muelles o sistemas que hacen que, a medida que la suspensión se comprime, se haga más dura. Los coches pesan más. Y muchos os preguntaréis. ¿Y qué? ¿Es una ventaja para las suspensiones convencionales? Pues sí. Os pongo un ejemplo: Volvamos al GS. Era un coche que pesaba 880 kg y cuya carga máxima era algo superior a los 400 kg, es decir, un 50 por ciento de peso extra. Por no saliros de Citroën un actual C3 Aircross, algo más o menos equivalente a un GS, pero 1400 kg y la carga máxima que permite es… de unos 400 kg. Es decir, un 28 por ciento. Amortiguadores. No es lo mismo firme que duro. Antes para que un coche tuviese un buen comportamiento necesitabas un amortiguador duro como una piedra… y ahora no, puede ser firme, pero no seco. La duración. Antes los amortiguadores se “morían” rápidamente. Si una suspensión hidroneumática era mejor que una convencional a coche nuevo, cuando el coche tenía kilómetros y los amortiguadores estaban en mal estado, la diferencia era abismal… La electrónica. Si podemos gestionar electrónicamente en tiempo real o simplemente adaptando la dureza al uso que le vamos a dar, las distancias entre una suspensión hidroneumática y una convencional se acorta mucho. “Historia-ficción”. Hasta ahora hemos hecho vídeos de “historia-ficción” pero no secciones de ficción en videos que no lo son. Nos estrenamos. Os voy a plantear un universo alternativo en el que Citroën no hubiese sido comprada por Peugeot y hubiese seguido apostando por ser una marca muy diferente y técnicamente muy avanzada. Y que apuesta por los modelos Premium. Porque una característica de Citroën duramente muchos años es que tenía una gama extraña de coches muy modestos o de coches prácticamente premium, y con una gama media escasa. Esto se arregló con el GS y sobre todo con el BX y posteriores. Pero en esta historia ficción Citroën decide que su marca se va a dedicar a los modelos “generalistas” y va a crear otra, DS, para modelos Premium. Y muchos me diréis: “¿esto es Historia-Ficción? Esto es lo que ha pasado.” Sí, pero no. Porque ¿te imaginas una gama DS con diseños tan atractivos como los de ahora, buenos motores y, como elemento diferenciador, suspensión hidroneumática? Yo sí me lo imagino y me ilusiona solo pensarlo. Y eso que, ¡ojo! que me gustan también los Citroën modernos y los DS. Pero una gama DS cien por cien original y con suspensión hidroneumática serie algo muy especial… Conclusión. Volvemos a la cruda realidad. Citroën está dentro de PSA que a su vez está dentro de Stellantis… son los tiempos que corren, una marca sola lo tiene difícil, que le vamos a hacer. Pero soñar es gratis. Y para los amantes de los coches con hidroneumática, siempre nos quedaran los clásicos. Coche del día. El Citroën XM V6 XM…¡me encanta este coche! Además, no llevaba suspensión hidroneumática, bueno, sí, pero evolucionada que Citroën la llamaba “Hidractiva” y era la leche. ¡Cómo iba este coche! Y con el motor V6 de casi 200 CV, una verdadera pasada.

Topic: How the Wealthy World Has Failed Poor Countries During the Pandemic Like much of the developing world, Pakistan was alarmingly short of doctors and medical facilities long before anyone had heard of COVID-19. Then the pandemic overwhelmed hospitals, forcing some to turn away patients. As fear upended daily life, families lost livelihoods and struggled to feed themselves. 跟許多開發中國家一樣，早在人們聽聞新冠病毒一詞以前，巴基斯坦就極其缺乏醫生和醫療設施。然後，這場大流行疾情讓各醫院無力招架，迫使部分醫院拒絕收治病人。隨著恐懼顛覆了日常生活，一個個家庭失去了生計，為養活自己而掙扎。 On the other side of the world in Washington, two deep-pocketed organizations, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, vowed to spare poor countries from desperation. Their economists warned that immense relief was required to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe and profound damage to global prosperity. Emerging markets make up 60% of the world economy, by one IMF measure. A blow to their fortunes inflicts pain around the planet. 在世界另一頭的華盛頓，世界銀行和國際貨幣基金這兩個財力雄厚的組織誓言不讓貧窮國家陷入絕境。他們的經濟學家警告說，必須大力進行救濟，以防止人道災難和對全球繁榮的嚴重破壞。根據國際貨幣基金的一項衡量指標，新興市場占全球經濟60%。他們的財富遭受打擊，將給全球帶來痛苦。 Wages sent home to poor countries by migrant workers — a vital artery of finance — have diminished. The shutdown of tourism has punished many developing countries. So has plunging demand for oil. Billions of people have lost the wherewithal to buy food, increasing malnutrition. By next year, the pandemic could push 150 million people into extreme poverty, the World Bank has warned, in the first increase in more than two decades. 移工寄回窮國的薪水是這些國家經濟的命脈，如今已經減少。旅遊業的關閉使許多開發中國家受到重創。對石油的需求大幅下降，同樣極具殺傷力。數十億人失去購買食物的必要資金，營養不良加劇。世界銀行警告說，這場大流行疾情到明年恐將讓1.5億人陷入赤貧，是20多年來首度增加。 But the World Bank and IMF have failed to translate their concern into meaningful support, economists say. That has left less-affluent countries struggling with limited resources and untenable debts, prompting their governments to reduce spending just as it is needed to bolster health care systems and aid people suffering lost income. 而經濟學家們說，世界銀行和國際貨幣基金並未將自身的關切轉化為有意義的支持。這讓一些較不富裕國家在有限的資源與難以支應的債務中苦苦掙扎，迫使這些國家反而在必須加強醫療體系、救助收入減少的民眾之際，縮減支出。 “A lost decade of growth in large parts of the world remains a plausible prospect absent urgent, concerted and sustained policy response,” concluded a recent report from the Group of 30, a gathering of international finance experts, including Lawrence Summers, a former economic adviser to President Barack Obama, and Treasury secretary in the Clinton administration. 由曾任歐巴馬總統經濟顧問、柯林頓政府財政部長的桑默斯等國際金融專家組成的30人小組，最近在一份報告中總結道：「若無緊急、協調一致與持續的政策回應，世界大部分地區出現經濟空轉無成長的十年，仍是看來很可能的前景。」 The wealthiest nations have been cushioned by extraordinary surges of credit unleashed by central banks and government spending collectively estimated at more than $8 trillion. Developing countries have yet to receive help on such a scale. 那些最富裕的國家因有央行釋放巨額信貸，佐以政府的支出而獲得緩衝，總額合計逾8兆美元，開發中國家則未獲如此大規模的援助。 The IMF and World Bank have marshaled a relatively anemic response, in part because of the predilections of their largest shareholder, the United States. 國際貨幣基金與世界銀行做出的反應相對無力，部分原因是順應最大股東美國的意思。Source article: https://udn.com/news/story/6904/5015842 Next Article Topic: How the Wealthy World Has Failed Poor Countries During the Pandemic Like much of the developing world, Pakistan was alarmingly short of doctors and medical facilities long before anyone had heard of COVID-19.

Conversations are mediated by masks and screens, their sentences strung together with new vocabulary: medical terms, political mandates and slang devised to take the clinical edge off. 新冠肺炎大流行顛覆了包括言語在內的各種人類行為。對話中都看到口罩和螢幕，他們的句子與新的詞彙串在一起：醫學術語，政治命令和俚語，旨在讓大眾更容易吸收。 This new vernacular has many people playing virologist in the group chat, with talk of contact tracing and antibody tests; planning “socially distant” activities like Zoom birthday parties and drive-by greetings; and tweeting about life under “quar,” a pet name for “quarantine”. 這些新的俚語讓很多人在社群中聊天時可以扮演病毒學家，談論接觸者追蹤和抗體測試，以及計劃「社交距離」活動，如在Zoom生日派對和駕車遠距問候;並在推特上發佈關於“quar”下的生活，“quar”是“隔離”的暱稱。 “‘Self-isolation,'‘social distancing,'‘abundance of caution'— pairs of words I'd never seen together in a sentence back in January have become ubiquitous,” she writes. These phrases are moving “even faster than the virus, eye to mind, ear to mouth, disseminated by our iPhone screens and televisions.” “'自我隔離'，'社交距離'，'大量的謹慎'——這些詞我在一月份時從未在一句話中看到過，現在開口兩句話些詞已經變得無處不在，”她寫道。這些片語正在以「比病毒更快，眼睛到思想，耳朵到嘴巴，通過我們的iPhone螢幕和電視傳播中。」 The proliferation of neologisms and jargon was significant enough to merit updates to the Oxford English Dictionary in April, beyond the dictionary's standard quarterly updates. 新詞和俚語的成長足以使牛津英語詞典在四月份進行更新，超出了原來該詞典的標準的季度更新。 “Social change brings about linguistic change,” said Fiona McPherson, a senior editor at the OED. “These are permanent additions to our vocabulary.” “社會變遷帶來了語言上的改變，”OED的高級編輯菲奧娜·麥克弗森（Fiona McPherson）說。“這些都是永久的加入我們詞彙中“。 She noted, though, that many of the words aren't new; rather, their use has become more frequent, their meanings shifted in the new context of the pandemic. “Social distancing,” “self-isolation” and “coronavirus” date back decades, even centuries. 不過，她指出，許多詞並不新鮮。相反，它們的使用變得更加頻繁，它們的含義在大流行的新背景下發生了變化。“社交距離”，“自我隔離”和“新冠病毒”可以追溯到幾十年前，甚至幾個世紀。 McPherson said a lexicographer's job is to be “descriptive, not prescriptive. We're telling the story of what the words mean, but they only mean that because that's how people are using them. And the stories are never completely finished.” 麥克弗森說，詞典編輯者的工作是“描述性的，而不是規範性的。我們講述的是這些詞的含義，但它們只是因為這就是人們使用它們的方式。故事永遠不會完全結束。 Gretchen McCulloch, a linguist and the author of “Because Internet,” raised the example of “face mask,” which a few months ago may have called to mind an at-home skin care treatment. Now, the phrase immediately evokes the protective mouth and nose covering people have been encouraged to wear to prevent viral transmission. 語言學家、《為何網際網路》（Why Internet）一書的作者格雷琴·麥卡洛克（Gretchen McCulloch）舉了一個“口罩”的例子，幾個月前，這種面膜可能讓人想起了一種家庭臉部護理。現在，這句話立即喚起了人們被鼓勵戴上保護性口鼻罩以防止病毒傳播的防護服。 This evolution in the language can be seen as well in the rhetoric of care providers and politicians, which varies by region. The states are“on pause”or working to“flatten the curve,”their residents told to“stay at home,”“shelter in place”or remain“healthy at home.” 這種語言的演變也可以從護理人員和政治家的言論中看到，這些言論因地區而異。各州正在「暫停」或努力「拉平曲線」，他們的居民被告知「留在家裡」，“就地避難”或保持“健康在家中”。 The World Health Organization has recommended that“physical distancing”replace“social distancing” because it more accurately describes the goal of keeping a physical distance while still encouraging safe, remote social connection, which is imperative for mental health. 世界衛生組織建議“保持身體距離”取代“社交距離”，因為它更準確地描述了保持身體距離的目標，同時仍然鼓勵安全，遠端的社交活動，這對心理健康至關重要。Source article: https://udn.com/news/story/6904/4602077 Next Article Topic: Airlines targeting post-pandemic ‘revenge travel' The blow caused to the airline industry by the COVID-19 pandemic has been especially felt by budget airlines, which mostly operate narrow-bodied passenger jets and have therefore been unable to develop a sideline in air freight during the pandemic. According to one academic's analysis, when the outbreak stabilizes, businesses are targeting a trend in so-called “revenge travel.” However, she also hopes that, rather than the pre-pandemic price wars between budget airlines, the consolidation that has taken place during the pandemic will restore healthy competition in the industry. 疫情衝擊航空界，其中廉航受限於機隊多為窄體客機，無法發展貨運，受疫情衝擊更大。學者分析，業者瞄準疫情穩定後的「報復性出遊」，但也希望疫情前廉航削價競爭的情況，能因疫情重整，回歸良性競爭。 According to associate professor Melody Dai of National Cheng Kung University's Department of Transportation and Communication Management Science, costs per flight have not changed during the pandemic, but if carriers are required to implement social-distancing seating plans, leaving empty seats between passengers, this would eat into airlines' profit margins, causing a fresh headache for the industry. Dai says she hopes that budget airlines will manage to survive, since they help stimulate Taiwan's domestic tourism sector as well as the wider economy. 成大交通管理學系副教授戴佐敏說，每航班成本不變、但座位未來若須採間隔座導致收入減少，確實是疫後的難題，希望廉航仍有生存空間，對促進觀光與經濟有正面幫助。 Dai says that choosing to operate flights during the pandemic is a test of airlines' ability to sustain losses, but the crisis may also prove to be a turnaround for the industry. Dai says there are many variables to the pandemic. She says that once the outbreak stabilizes, if the demand for “revenge travel” exceeds supply, this could resolve the pre-pandemic situation of supply exceeding demand, which led to price wars among budget airlines. The consolidation that the pandemic has triggered within the airline industry could bring about a return to healthy competition, says Dai. 戴佐敏認為，選擇在疫情期間開航，考驗航空公司「虧本」的能力，不過危機也有可能是轉機，疫情仍有變數，疫情穩定後的「報復性出遊」若需求大於供給，疫情前廉航供過於求、削價競爭的情況，這次可能因疫情重整，回歸良性競爭。 One industry insider stated that, despite the lockdowns and reduced number of travelers and flights during the pandemic, the industry is bullish about post-pandemic prospects for both freight and passenger travel in the flourishing Asian region. The insider added that a trend in “revenge travel” could cause short-haul routes to become particularly busy. 業者指出，雖然國境仍然封鎖，疫情期間每週班次不多，旅客也非常少，但看好疫情後亞洲旺盛的物流、人流，預估疫情趨緩後將出現「報復性出遊」，亞洲短程航線將會更繁忙。Source article: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2021/09/12/2003764205

How do the experiences of our parents affect us? Do they affect only our learned behaviors? Or can they somehow affect our genes as well? Can the changes in someone's body due to a traumatic experience be passed on to their children and grandchildren? From famine in Ukraine to smells and diet in rats and mice, today we discuss how epigenetics plays a role in altering the biology of future generations. References: Bezo, B., & Maggi, S. (2015).

The act of personal review is more thorough and rewarding when conducted in the company of other women. Our villages are our advocates, helping us uncover riches buried within our experiences. They shine a light on life moments that we may have forgotten––or willfully ignored. My guest TiShaunda McPherson is senior vice president and first-ever chief diversity officer at the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago. For more than 20 years, TiShaunda has addressed institutional, regional, and systemic discrimination in employment and educational settings. She's a member of my village and someone who embodies the practice of review without the peril of regression. When I think about “review”, I envision the Sankofa, the mythical bird with its feet and body facing forward, its head turned back. Sankofa is committed to progress, propelled by wisdom from the past. As Black women, those lessons are embedded in the “strength” that we're required to develop (not by choice) to endure the expectations often heaped on us. “As a Black woman in predominantly white spaces, It's been instilled in me this notion that I have to work twice as hard and be twice as good,” says TiShaunda, “and, so, asking for help is counter to that.” The act of review can help us unlearn generations of harmful survival training. Shaunda agrees. “I think this goes right back to the Sankofa, looking back and letting the past guide your future. Now I'm trying to pick that back up as I go into these new roles and how I show up for church, community, and family.” We can move forward while looking back. With the help of our sisters, we can fetch lessons that are at risk of getting left behind. Review - Here's How: Gather your village. From blood relatives to chosen sisters, community can help us uncover what's hidden in our past. Commit to the question. Are there experiences you've left behind that keep you from moving forward? Embrace the Sankofa. Don't go turning your whole body to the past. Keep your feet planted forward as you look back.
