This episode is a little different but the mission will always be to help you live a better life... This week Derek reads an article written by the biggest newpaper in the state of Idaho that is attacking a small town football coach for his beliefs. This article hits very close to home seeing that Derek has been coaching high school football for 15 years and also puts his opinions out through his podcast and social media platforms. When a small, fringe group of people have the loudest microphones, it will seem like your values are outdated. It may even seem like you are the extemist...but you aren't. Derek is using this different style of episode to encourage everyone that enough is enough. We've had enough of people being cancelled for stepping out of line. We are tired of people being fired for having beliefs that aren't considered "mainstream" enough. We are tired of self-censoring for fear of retribution. If you are feeling the same way as Derek and are tired of the craziness going on, please share this episode!
Daron Payne (ankle) was a full participant in practice today and will play on Sunday. Logan Thomas (concussion protocol) was on the side field but did not practice and has been ruled out for the Buffalo game. Kam Curl and Curtis Samuel both had flu-like symptoms but are expected to be ready. The Bills did not have any player with an injury designation at practice today. They will be at full health on Sunday. Minority owner Mark Ein interacted with fans on Twitter and said he would bring up one person's request to the ownership group. The request is to once again have team rallies in the cities in which the Commanders play on the road. A refreshing change around here! The question of the day at Commanders Park is how you like your chicken. Wings, drums or flats. The boys weighed in!
Democratic backsliding, a term that American political scientists usually use to describe the process by which other countries transition to autocracy, has come home. Freedom House's Global Freedom Index, which attempts to track the health of democracies around the world, recently demoted the United States from a score of 90 in 2015 to 83 in 2021, lower than every established democracy in Western Europe. How did American democracy fall so far behind, and more importantly, what can we do about it? Lawfare Managing Editor Tyler McBrien spoke with Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt, authors of the new book, “Tyranny of the Minority: Why American Democracy Reached the Breaking Point,” to answer these questions about our ailing democracy. They discussed the diagnoses and prescriptions of this breaking point, the most damaging counter-majoritarian features of the U.S. Constitution, and why constitutional and electoral reform is so damn difficult in the U.S.—but not impossible. They also got into how the Republican Party went off the rails. Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/lawfare. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

The Democrat coalition is unraveling and Biden is politically collapsing! That is what we are seeing unfolding right before our very eyes! We're going to see the liberal media publishing panicked pieces warning Democrats that their coalition is irreparably fracturing and Trump is thoroughly on his way to reelection! Highlights: “Trump has amassed support among minority voters that no Republican has seen in half a century!” “These two dynamics -- the hemorrhaging of minority voters and the rise of leftwing third-party candidates -- threaten to completely unravel the Democrat coalition and sink any chance that Biden has for reelection!

In their new book, "Tyranny of the Minority," Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt say politicians are welcoming anti-democratic extremists into their party ranks and part of the problem lies in the Constitution. Laura Barrón-López spoke with the writers about how the country got to this point. PBS NewsHour is supported by - https://www.pbs.org/newshour/about/funders
If you've ever downplayed your success at work, felt like you didn't belong, or attributed your career wins to luck, you've likely experienced Imposter Syndrome. Stats show that 70 per cent of us have experienced its wily grip at some stage of our careers. In this fast-paced solo episode I share three key things that might be causing imposter syndrome in your life. We'll also explore what might be GOOD about it, and what three-step technique you can try when you're feeling it. I'm also curious if the term itself is outdated (it originated in the 1970s). Oh, you're wondering about the banana. You'll hear how a banana kicked off a shame cycle for me. True story. Links: Mandy's imposter syndrome QUIZ. How the Queen would eat a banana.

In this episode of BackTable ENT, Dr. Tammara Watts, surgeon-scientist at Duke University, sits down with host Dr. Gopi Shah to discuss two exciting scholarship opportunities for medical students available through the American Head & Neck Society (AHNS). --- SHOW NOTES Fewer than 5% of practicing otolaryngologists identify as members of underrepresented minority groups (URM), and these scholarships directly address that disparity. Gopi and Tammara then transition to discussing the importance of diversity in otolaryngology more broadly. First, Tammara expounds on what is gained by having a workforce that includes individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences. Through the Dr. Eddie Méndez Research Fellowship and the Myers' Family Summer Fellowship, AHNS provides unique opportunities for aspiring otolaryngologists who identify as URM to connect with future colleagues. The Research Fellowship provides $10,000 to a medical student interested in spending one year immersed in otolaryngology research. It is unique in that AHNS provides a list of mentors (with bio-sketches) that interested applicants can connect with to formulate a research plan before applying. The Myers' Family Summer Fellowship financially supports a rising MS2 or MS3 student to gain exposure in Head & Neck Surgery. Next, Tammara offers tips on cultivating successful mentor-mentee relationships, emphasizing that mentors enjoy supporting their future colleagues, and that it is easier to do so when the mentee takes initiative. Finally, Tammara shares her philosophy regarding DEI. Though otolaryngologic patients come from all walks of life, their surgeons can't always conceptualize how their experiences influence their care. By supporting URM students interested in ENT, she (along with her AHNS colleagues) are helping create a workforce that can better understand and heal. --- RESOURCES AHNS's Dr. Eddie Méndez Fellowship: https://www.ahns.info/dr-eddie-mendez-research-fellowship/ AHNS's Myers' Family Summer Fellowship in Otolaryngology: https://www.ahns.info/myers-summer-fellowship/ Dr. Tammara Watts MD, PhD's Duke University Profile: https://headnecksurgery.duke.edu/profile/tammara-lynn-watts
On this edition of Your Call, Harvard Professor Steven Levitsky will discuss Tyranny of the Minority, a book he wrote with Professor Daniel Ziblatt. They write: “the conditions that gave rise to the Trump presidency—a radicalized party empowered by a pre-democratic constitution—remain in place. We stand at a crossroads: either America will be a multiracial democracy or it will not be a democracy at all. As the civil rights generation passes into history, the work of building a truly multiracial democracy falls upon us. Future generations will hold us to account.”

Steven Levitsky is the David Rockefeller professor of Latin American Studies and Professor of Government at Harvard University, and Daniel Ziblatt is the Eaton Professor of the Science of Government at Harvard University. They are the authors, jointly, of How Democracies Die. Their latest book is Tyranny of the Minority: Why American Democracy Reached the Breaking Point. In this week's conversation, Yascha Mounk, Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt discuss the extent to which American institutions distort our politics by excessively thwarting majority governance; whether or not the American electorate is polarizing, or depolarizing, by race; and whether American democracy is better served by pursuing institutional reform or by tailoring Democratic Party strategy to the system as it exists.

American Democracy has faced some challenging times, living through a modern day political crisis. Today, Sharon is joined by Harvard professors of government, Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt to dig into all things Democracy. In their new book, Tyranny of the Minority, they explore how democracies break down throughout history and find the striking pattern that political minorities often govern over political majorities. Factor in the unsettling truth that the Constitution – even with its brilliance and reverence – has flaws, which limit the power of majorities, and we're left wondering: Why have we stopped working to reform and improve the Constitution over the last half century? What are other Democracies doing to fight Authoritarianism? And what is a “Constitutional Republic” in relation to a Democracy? Special thanks to our guests, Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt, for joining us today.Host/Executive Producer: Sharon McMahonGuests: Steven Levitsky and Daniel ZiblattAudio Producer: Jenny Snyder Hosted on Acast.

Dr. Dan Borvan speaks about the French Huguenots' persecution and piety in the 16th and 17th centuries and what the 21st church might learn from them. This address was delivered recently at the Christianity and Liberal Democracy: Common and Separate conference at Reformed Church Southern Suburbs in Rondebosch/Capetown, South Africa. The congregation is a part of the United Reformed Churches in North America.
