From astronauts to submariners, here are some practical ways to boost your well-being and stave off cabin fever during those weeks stuck at home. 為減緩武漢肺炎的傳播，全世界有數十億人忽然得要適應政府的抗疫措施，以保持社交距離。對此，幾位習於禁足狀態的專業人士提供了一些訣竅。從太空人到潛水艇人員，以下是他們所提供的實用方法，可以讓你待在家這幾週的健康情況改善，並避免幽閉煩躁症。 ‘Have a schedule' Scott Kelly, a retired NASA astronaut, spent nearly a year aboard the International Space Station. He told AFP that mindset was crucial. “People need to have the right expectation, we don't know when this is gonna be over,” he said. “We could be in this for the long haul so your mindset needs to be: I'm living a similar thing to living in space for a year, I need to have a schedule, I need to get up at a regular time, to go to sleep at a regular time.” He also said exercise was key for both physical and mental well-being while confined. “You need to schedule time for exercise. If you cannot get out if you don't have a garden, raise the window shade, open the window and stick your head outside, make that part of daily routine.” 「按表操課」 自美國太空總署退休的太空人史考特‧凱利，曾在國際太空站待了將近一年。他告訴法新社說，心態是至關重要的。他說：「我們不知道這情況何時會結束，人們必須有這正確的預期心理」。「我們可能會處於這種狀態很長的時間，因此你的心態應該是這樣：我現在就像是要在太空生活一年，我需要有作息時間表，需要定時起床、定時去睡覺」。他還說，禁足在家時，運動對於身體和心理的健康至關重要。「你需要安排運動的時間。如果你沒有花園、不能出去，那就拉起窗簾、打開窗戶，然後把頭伸到外面，把它排程為每日例行公事之一」。 Find your mission For Vincent Larnaudie-Eiffel, a former commander of a nuclear submarine, working well in confinement means finding and investing in your own personal “mission.” Just like on board the sub, “stuck in our apartments, we all share a mission and that is to protect others, medical workers, and successfully navigate this ordeal.” He said it was important to establish a daily routine and stick to it. “You can't give in... you need to do something with this suspended time.” For Larnaudie-Eiffel and his crewmates, this involved building models or growing plants under artificial light during their spare time. “It's also important that everyone has their own space,” he told AFP. “In a submarine it might be a cramped bed-space. It's the same in a cramped apartment.” 找到你的使命 對曾任核子潛艇司令官的凡松‧拉諾迪—艾菲爾來說，在居家隔離時把工作做好，意味找到你自己的「使命」並投入其中。如同在潛艇中一樣，「我們困在公寓裡，所有人都有著共同的使命，那就是保護別人、保護醫療人員，並成功度過這嚴酷的考驗」。他說，建立一套每日例行程序並堅持下去，是很重要的。「你不能屈服……你必須用這段停擺的時間來做點事情」。對於拉諾迪—艾菲爾及其潛艇組員來說，這包括在閒暇時組裝模型，或是利用人造光種植物。「每個人都有自己的空間也是很重要的」，他告訴法新社說。「在潛水艇中，此個人空間或許是個狹窄的床位。若是身處狹小的公寓，也是一樣的道理」。 ‘Try new things' Sailor Isabelle Autissier was the first woman to circumnavigate the globe alone. This involved a lot of time to herself. But she said she never felt lonely because “I chose to be alone.” For people stuck at home she recommends using the time “to try new things, reading, listening to different music, write your journal, take photos, start drawing.” Above all it's important that people don't look too far ahead. When she was at sea, facing an indeterminate amount of time alone “the first thing is not to count the days,” said Autissier. “You can't constantly be thinking I'll get there in three months, in a month, in 10 minutes.” 「嘗試新事物」 航海家伊莎貝‧歐提西耶是第一位獨自環繞地球航行的女性。要完成此舉，她必須孤身一人很長一段時間。但她說她從不覺得孤獨，因為「是我選擇了獨自一人」。對於那些困在家裡的人，她建議可以利用這段時間「嘗試新事物、閱讀、聽不同的音樂、寫日記、拍照、開始畫畫」。最重要的，是不要想得太遠。歐提西耶說，當她在海上時，面對不知將會持續多久的獨處時間，「第一件事就是不要去數日子」。「你不能一直去想說我會在三個月、一個月、十分鐘後抵達那裡」。 ‘Morale dips are normal' Cyprien Verseux, an astrobiologist at Germany's University of Bremen, once spent over a year in a small pod with five other volunteers simulating conditions in a future mission to Mars. “It's normal for your morale and productivity to dip,” he said. “That's not a sign of weakness. Don't add guilt to your problems.” When in confinement for the experiment, Verseux wasn't allowed outside and was forbidden from communicating in real time with the outside world. “Even if we don't all react the same to confinement we can adopt good practise that makes these periods more manageable,” he said. He recommends choosing one or two activities and practising hard. “Also do your sport, light weights, do yoga, zumba... even if there's a lack of space there are solutions to stay in shape,” he said. 「士氣低落是正常的」 德國不來梅大學的天體生物學家西普揚‧維索曾與五名志願者一起，在一個小艙裡待了一年多，模擬未來火星探索任務之情境。 他說：「你的士氣和生產力下降是正常的」。「這並不表示你軟弱。不要把罪惡感再加到你的問題上頭」。 維索參與這禁足的實驗時，不能到艙外，也被禁止與外界進行即時溝通。他說：「即便我們對被禁足的反應不同，我們也可以採用一些好的做法，來使這些時間更容易度過」。 他建議選擇一、兩項活動並努力練習。他說：「你也可以做運動、減肥、做瑜伽、跳森巴舞……即使空間不足，也可以找到解決辦法來維持身材」。 Stay in touch In 2009, astronaut Frank de Winne became the first European to command the International Space Station. He said it was vital to maintain human contact, even if only electronically. “Means of communication are there, you have to make the effort and use them,” he said. The Belgian, now in quarantine on Earth, makes sure to video call his elderly mother at the same time each day. “That allows her to see me. It also creates a bit of structure for her because she knows that I'm going to call her,” he said. 保持聯繫 太空人法蘭克‧德溫勒在二○○九年成為指揮國際太空站的第一位歐洲人。他說，保持人與人之間的聯繫極為重要，即便只是透過電子的方式。「我們已經有了溝通的工具，你必須付諸行動來運用它」。比利時籍的他現正在地球上進行隔離，且每天一定會在同樣的時間跟年邁的母親視訊通話。他說：「這讓她可以看到我。這也給她一個時間框架，因為她知道我會在這時候打電話給她」。 Source article: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2020/03/31/2003733674 Next Article Topic: NASA and Tide team up to do laundry in space Tide is going to outer space. The Procter & Gamble brand is partnering with NASA to keep astronauts' spacesuits fresh, even on Mars. 汰漬正在前往外太空。這個寶鹼公司的品牌正與美國航太總署合作，維持太空人太空服的乾淨，即便是在火星。 Company and NASA scientists have created a fully degradable detergent that will clean clothes without wasting water. 該公司與NASA科學家已經創造一款完全可自然分解的洗滌劑，不用浪費水就能潔淨衣物。 Over the next decade, they'll be testing fabric care products, including Tide pens and wipes, at the International Space Station and on missions to the moon and Mars. 在未來10年中，他們將在國際太空站與登月、登火星的任務中，測試織物照護產品，包括汰漬的筆與濕紙巾。 The months or even years that astronauts spend away from Earth means that their spacesuits and clothes can become smelly and stained. Clothes have to be reworn several times before they are ejected with other waste into the atmosphere or sent back to Earth as trash. A crew member will receive 160 pounds of clothes per year through resupply shipments. 太空人離開地球數月，甚至數年的時間，意味著他們的太空服與衣物會變臭且染色。這些衣物與其他廢物被拋入大氣層或當成垃圾送回地球前，必須重複穿著許多次。1名組員每年將透過補給，拿到160磅重的衣物。 Next Article Topic: Russia wants to return to Venus, build reusable rocket 俄羅斯希望重返金星，打造可重複使用的火箭 The head of Russia's space agency said Friday that Roscosmos wants to return to Venus and bring back soil samples and build spacecraft that will surpass Elon Musk's rockets. 俄羅斯太空機構負責人週五說，俄羅斯航太太空活動國有公司（Roscosmos）想重返金星 ，帶回土壤樣本，並打造超越（太空探索科技公司）創辦人穆斯克的火箭的太空船。 "We are making a methane rocket to replace the Soyuz-2," Roscosmos chief Dmitry Rogozin said in an interview with state news agency RIA Novosti. 「我們正在打造一種甲烷火箭取代聯合2號火箭（Soyuz-2）」，俄羅斯航太總裁羅戈辛在接受國營「俄羅斯新聞社」訪問時說。 He said it will be a reusable space complex, noting that it will be possible to use its first stage at least 100 times. 他說，新火箭將是可以重複使用的太空綜合體，並強調第一節將有望重複使用至少100次。 "Of course we are looking at what our American colleagues are doing," said Rogozin. "But our engineers are trying to take a shortcut － not to repeat what our SpaceX colleagues are doing but surpass them." 「我們當然有在關注美國同業的進展」，羅戈辛說。「但我們的工程師正試圖抄近路—不是重複SpaceX在做的事，而是超越他們。」Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1457274; https://news.ltn.com.tw/news/world/paper/1395146 Next Article Topic: Chinese rocket's chaotic fall to Earth highlights problem of space junk Remnants of China's biggest rocket landed in the Indian Ocean on May 9, ending days of speculation over where the debris would hit and drawing US criticism over a lack of transparency. 中國最大火箭之殘骸已在五月九日墜落印度洋，讓數天來對殘骸究竟將撞擊何處的猜測告一段落，也引起美國對此事缺乏透明度的批評。 But the fiery fate of a booster rocket, wherever it comes down, speaks to the larger issue of space debris and space sustainability, especially as space becomes a target not just for national space programs but also increasingly the private sector. Under international treaty, private space actors, who are expected to put 45,000 satellites in low Earth orbit over the next several years, are under the legal responsibility of their host nations. 火箭推進器在熊熊烈焰中的宿命，無論它掉在哪裡，都觸及太空垃圾與太空永續性這更大的問題，尤其此時太空不僅成為國家太空計畫之標的，也愈趨成為私有公司之標的。在未來幾年中，經營太空業務的私有公司將把四萬五千顆衛星送入低空地球軌道，而根據國際條約規定，法律責任是由其東道國所承擔。 Add to that an estimated 9,300 tonnes of space junk that is already orbiting the planet and the probability of space collisions and debris pollution is an issue of concern. 此外，據估計，現已有九千三百噸太空垃圾在繞著地球轉，太空中的碰撞與垃圾污染問題令人關注。 Previously, a piece of paint the size of a fingernail struck the windscreen of a space shuttle, piercing two of three layers of glass. 此前，一塊指甲大小的油漆打到一艘太空船的擋風玻璃，刺穿了三層厚玻璃的其中兩層。 The fate of Long March 5B could refocus governments and international bodies on the issue of space sustainability, and that could provide more opportunity to firms like UK-based Astroscale that are preparing to tackle the debris problem with commercial junk-collecting services. 長征五號的命運可能使政府及國際組織重新關注太空的永續性問題，而可能給像英國的Astroscale這樣的公司帶來更多機會，這些公司正準備提供收集垃圾之商業化服務，以解決太空垃圾問題。 Astroscale is currently demonstrating a vehicle called “ELSA-d” in lower Earth orbit to show that space debris clean-up is indeed possible. It is a fiendishly difficult task, especially if the target satellite is spinning and tumbling. The test is using a satellite to capture a test drone with a magnet. In time, larger objects will require a robotic arm. Astroscale正在地球較低軌道展示一種名為「ELSA-d」的運載工具，以證明清除太空垃圾的確可行。這是一項艱鉅的任務，尤其是目標衛星處於旋轉與翻滾的情況時。該測試透過衛星進行，以磁鐵來捕獲測試用無人機，最後也會需要用到機械臂來抓取較大的物體。Source article: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2021/05/17/2003757510
每日英語跟讀 Ep.K235: The Masked Professor vs. the Unmasked Student Matthew Boedy, an associate professor of rhetoric and composition, sent out a raw emotional appeal to his students at the University of North Georgia just before classes began: The COVID-19 delta variant was rampaging through the state, filling up hospital beds. He would teach class in the equivalent of full body armor — vaccinated and masked. 修辭與寫作副教授波迪開學前向北喬治亞大學學生發出一份帶有強烈情感的呼籲：新冠病毒delta變異株正肆虐該州，醫院病床已滿。他將打完疫苗戴上口罩，形同全副武裝上課。 So he was stunned in late August when more than two-thirds of the first-year students in his writing class did not take the hint and showed up unmasked. 因此，8月下旬他的寫作課有超過三分之二大一學生不了解這一暗示，未戴口罩來上課，他相當驚訝。 It was impossible to tell who was vaccinated and who was not. “It isn't a visual hellscape, like hospitals; it's more of an emotional hellscape,” Boedy said. 要區分誰接種過疫苗誰沒接種，根本不可能。波迪說：「它不像醫院那樣屬於視覺上的地獄景觀，比較像是情感上的地獄景觀。」 North Georgia is not requiring its students to be vaccinated or masked this fall. And as in-person classes return at almost every university in the country, after almost 1 1/2 years of emergency pivoting to online learning, many professors are finding teaching a nerve-racking experience. 北喬治亞大學今年秋天並未要求學生接種疫苗或配戴口罩。在緊急轉為線上學習近一年半後，美國幾乎所有大學都恢復了面對面授課，許多教授如今發現教學是個讓人神經緊張的經驗。 The American College Health Association recommends vaccination requirements for all on-campus higher education students for the fall semester. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends face coverings, regardless of vaccine status, for indoor public spaces in areas where the rate of infection is high. 美國大學健康協會建議，秋季學期所有高等教育的在校生一律接種疫苗。美國疾病防治中心建議，無論疫苗接種情況如何，在感染率高的室內公共場所都要配戴口罩。 But this is not how it has worked out on more than a few campuses. 但在很多校園情況卻不是如此。 More than 1,000 colleges and universities have adopted vaccination requirements for at least some students and staff. In an indication of how political vaccination has become, the schools tend to be clustered in states that voted for President Joe Biden in the last election. 超過1000所學院與大學已對至少一部分學生及教職員工採行疫苗接種規定。這些學校往往集中於上次大選投票給拜登總統的州，顯示疫苗接種已變得相當政治化。 But at some campuses, particularly in Republican-led states with high rates of contagion — like the state systems in Georgia, Texas and Florida — vaccination is optional and mask wearing, while recommended, cannot be enforced. 但在一些校園裡，尤其是共和黨執政且傳染率偏高的州，如喬治亞州、德州與佛羅里達州，接種疫苗是選擇性的，雖建議配戴口罩但不得強制實施。 A smattering of faculty members have resigned in protest over optional mask policies. Most, like Boedy, are soldiering on. But the level of fear is so high that even at universities that do require vaccination and masks, like Cornell University and the University of Michigan, professors have signed petitions asking for the choice to return to online teaching. 一些教職員工已辭職抗議選擇性口罩政策，多數人像波迪一樣還在堅持。但恐懼程度高漲，即使在康乃爾大學與密西根大學等規定必須接種疫苗和配戴口罩的大學，教授們也簽署請願書，要求能選擇恢復線上授課。 “Morale is at an all-time low,” warns a petition at the University of Iowa. 愛荷華大學一份請願書警告說：「士氣空前低落。」 Universities are caught between the demands of their faculty for greater safety precautions, and the fear of losing students, and the revenue they bring, if schools return to another year of online education. 許多大學陷入兩難局面，教師要求更多安全防範措施，校方則擔心若再恢復一年的線上教學，恐失去學生及其帶來的收入。Source article: https://udn.com/news/story/6904/5786889

Good morning, RVA! It's 58 °F, and it rained! The storms have moved through, though, and now we've got a pleasant fall day ahead of us. Expect highs in the mid 60s, some clouds, and dry weather for at least the next couple of days. Water cooler One quick coronaupdate this morning for iPhone users: iOS 15.1 came out yesterday, and that means you can now store your vaccination card in the Wallet app. Just fill out this form on vaccinate.virginia.gov, and you'll end up with a QR code and a link that'll automatically load up your information as a fun card in Wallet.app. I think once you get boosted, you can even update it with that information, too. Neat! The Richmond Times-Dispatch's Chris Suarez has the update from last night's final City Council meeting on the Mayor's proposed ARPA spending plan, and it sounds like Council approved the whole shebang. You can find more details on the City's ARPA page, but the big-ticket investments are parks, trails, and community centers; the Affordable Housing Trust Fund; stormwater infrastructure; and a new Healthy Equity Trust Fund. While the full spending plan is approved, this huge bucket of money will be allocated over two years. Someone should definitely set up a spreadsheet or a Trello or something to track progress on all these rad projects. In particular, I can't wait for some of the new trails! Whoa there is a lot in this piece from Jessica Nocera in the RTD about how Chesterfield County Public Schools' unnecessary and mostly imaginary battle against Critical Race Theory does in fact have a chilling effect on folks in the County working against systemic racism. It's not hard to see how a policy banning CRT-related professional development has already led to the District rejecting a principal's request to take diversity, equity, and inclusion training from VCU. Not great—both scary and embarrassing. Side note: I really love the way Nocera reports this story without a lot of both-sidesism (or as NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen calls it, The View From Nowhere). Tonight at 5:00 PM, Council's Public Safety Committee will meet and hear recommendations presented by the Civilian Review Board Task Force. As a fun pregame to tonight's meeting, you can read the Task Force's recommendations yourself, one of which is "that the CRB will have its own department to avoid conflicts of interest; this is aligned with the recommendations of the City Attorney's Office. As such, we recommend creating a department or office of 'Community Oversight and Police Accountability' independent from other City departments or offices." I don't know a ton about how CRBs should work, but that is exactly why we tasked a taskforce to come up with recommendations! If you'd like to holler at your councilmember in support of the Task Force's recommendations—including the creation of an Office of Community Oversight and Police Accountability—you can find the big list of councilmember contact information here. One final note, and I'll assume that it was not intentional, but it does not seem particularly even-handed to schedule the Richmond Police Department to present on "Police Staffing and Morale" immediately before the CRB Task Force gives their presentation on police accountability. Well, I guess it's official. VPM's Ben Paviour reports that "The Virginia Redistricting Commission has missed a final deadline to draw new state legislative maps, kicking the process to the Virginia Supreme Court." Paviour helpfully lays out the next steps and timeline for the judges to get these maps drawn. This coming Thursday, October 28th, the Community Foundation will host a free, online panel focused on Everyday Nonprofit Advocacy. We've got a lot of issues to tackle in Richmond, and a ton of them are systemic issues requiring big-time policy changes to make our city a better place to live. Nonprofit advocacy (and regular-person advocacy!) plays a big role in that, and I deeply agree with this bit from the event description: "the community needs leaders who engage decisions makers well." Maybe systems-change work is too daunting or exhausting to think about—that's fine! How about this, then: Richmond Public Schools needs volunteers to provide no-contact grocery delivery to RPS families. That's about as finite and concrete of a task as you can get. This morning's longread Could removing parking requirements help revitalize Virginia's cities? I thought I'd move this extensive piece from Wyatt Gordon at the Virginia Mercury down to the longread section—it's packed with the impacts of free parking on a city like Richmond. Luckily, at least one of our councilmembers wants to make some incremental changes to the currently broken system. “People see the language of the resolution and worry I'm getting rid of parking,” said Addison, “But eliminating parking minimums just means we're not putting a burden on business owners and developers to provide and build more parking than they actually need. Parking minimums are a big barrier to housing affordability and people choosing other modes of mobility. Eliminating those outdated calculations on how much parking establishments need gets us closer to a market for shared parking that works better for everybody.” If you'd like your longread to show up here, go chip in a couple bucks on the ol' Patreon.
Have you ever opened up an app that you love, just to be bothered by that one critical feature that hardly works, feels too slow, or is just frustrating to use? Chances are, the developers that wrote that code are all too aware of the problem. Maybe the code is too complex to fix without re-writing it, or perhaps their priorities shift to some other newer and shinier feature of the product. We call problems like this technical debt, and it is a growing problem that we must address. In today's podcast, I speak with Alex Omeyer, Co-founder and CEO of Stepsize. Alex walks us through the various types of technical debt teams can accumulate. We then talk about how technical debt can impact teams, morale, and the customer's end product. Alex proposes solutions to drive down technical debt by incorporating it directly into the development lifecycle. His organization, Stepsize, makes it easier to track technical debt and provide traceability, so the process ties directly into the standard tools developers use daily.

Kristen Cox is the world's leading authority on how to apply the Theory of Constraints to governments and non profits. She is perhaps best known for her work as the former Executive Director of the Governor's Office of Management and Budget (GOMB) for the State of Utah where she orchestrated a 35 percent improvement across Utah's $20B executive branch. It was 2008, and I was in serious trouble... I was leading a state agency in Salt Lake City during the economic crisis. The worse the economy got, the more citizens came to us looking for help. And the economy was getting worse by the day. Caseloads were up by 60 percent. Common sense would say I needed to hire 60 percent more employees and lease the office space to house them. But that was out of the question. We all knew what was coming: budget cuts. My team was stressed out, overworked, and worried. Truth-be-told, so was I. I started trying different approaches--knowing there had to be a better way. Most failed. One showed promise, but it clearly wasn't going to work out of the shrink wrap--it was built for business and industry. It would need to be modified to work in government. So, that's what my team and I did. We tweaked, experimented, failed, learned, and then...we figured it out. We were not only able to meet the unprecedented demand, but improve quality, and we returned $30 million back to the General Fund--we didn't need it. Morale was restored. We were a team again knowing we just pulled off a huge accomplishment against all odds. Soon after, the Governor made me executive director over an agency that would oversee the state's $20 billion budget and all of the executive branch's operations. Together, we set an ambitious target to improve all of state government by 25 percent. We improved by 35 percent. I started sharing our story online. We organized the biggest conference of its kind in the world, and I co-authored two books. I've now applied this in over 200 systems in a huge variety of settings. It works.

Joined today by NYPD PBA President, Police Officer Patrick Lynch. Pat and I talk about his childhood growing up in Queens, and how being a city worker was a route he knew he wanted to take. We hear about why Officer Lynch decided to raise his right hand and join the NYPD. Pat shares about graduating the police academy, getting stationed in Williamsburg in the 90th Precinct and how different it was back then to now. He describes the day to day battles and responsibilities the PBA has, from petitioning against the release of cop killers to making sure the NYC police officers are represented rightfully and fair. We talk about the current state of policing in this climate with a war on police officers, from bail reform to the protests. Morale seems to be at an all-time low and Pat and I talk about why that is, how that can be changed and if there is a glimmer of hope. Pat shared his experience meeting with President Trump, why it's so important for cops to vote and how he was feeling before addressing the nation during the RNC. He beams with pride about his 2 son's raising their right hand and joining the police department, and confesses what his biggest fear is for them. From meeting Joe Frazier to responding to the Miracle on the Hudson, Officer Pat Lynch shows why he deserves to be the head of the most powerful police union in the United States. **Sponsor: https://www.instagram.com/Henry_daverin/ **
Joined today by NYPD PBA President, Police Officer Patrick Lynch. Pat and I talk about his childhood growing up in Queens, and how being a city worker was a route he knew he wanted to take. We hear about why Officer Lynch decided to raise his right hand and join the NYPD. Pat shares about graduating the police academy, getting stationed in Williamsburg in the 90th Precinct and how different it was back then to now. He describes the day to day battles and responsibilities the PBA has, from petitioning against the release of cop killers to making sure the NYC police officers are represented rightfully and fair. We talk about the current state of policing in this climate with a war on police officers, from bail reform to the protests. Morale seems to be at an all-time low and Pat and I talk about why that is, how that can be changed and if there is a glimmer of hope. Pat shared his experience meeting with President Trump, why it's so important for cops to vote and how he was feeling before addressing the nation during the RNC. He beams with pride about his 2 son's raising their right hand and joining the police department, and confesses what his biggest fear is for them. From meeting Joe Frazier to responding to the Miracle on the Hudson, Officer Pat Lynch shows why he deserves to be the head of the most powerful police union in the United States.

Riding the solo train for this episode as I read off some of the hundreds of heartbreaking messages I've been receiving from Hot Mess Teacher Express listeners/teachers about their struggles this school year. We praise an amazing superintendent that recently created a 3-day weekend for her staff and students' mental health and well-being. YES! And then I share a few stories of frustrating "gifts with puns" given to teachers by leadership with the intentions of boosting morale, but falling short.

In this episode of Keiser Report, Max and Stacy look at the latest financial news, including that shortages continue and the money printing does too. In the second half, Max continues his conversation with Rick Ackerman of Rick's Picks about the hyper-hypothecated treasuries moment.
In today's hour of non-stop talk, Rich discussed the lack of morale within police departments across the United States. Constant negative media coverage has taken its toll on recruiting, perception, etc., everywhere and it doesn't help when Mayor's like Jim Kenney in Philadelphia won't accept he needs more officers to crack down on the risk in crime throughout Philadelphia and the nation as a whole.

NUGGET CONTEXT Katy speaks about one of the attributes of Dr Max Bazerman, her advisor (who has a track record of having several of his students in reputed colleges around the world) when she was a PhD student. She speaks about how he would behave when his students would often face a bump or deal with a rejection and come to him for advise. Katy says that rather than focusing on critiquing the work content, he would focus on encouraging the student, highly counterintuitive for a lot of us. GUEST Katy Milkman is the James G. Dinan Professor at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and holds a secondary appointment at Penn's Perelman School of Medicine. Her research explores ways that insights from economics and psychology can be harnessed to change consequential behaviors for good, such as savings, exercise, vaccination take-up and discrimination. She has also recently authored the Book - How to Change - The Science of Getting from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. In 2018, she began hosting Charles Schwab's popular podcast “Choiceology with Katy Milkman”, which explores key lessons from behavioral economics about decision making. Published in September 2021.

This week, Nate and Francis speak with friend of the show and investigative reporter Ken Klippenstein about the various things he's got going on: reporting on DHS, reporting on labor law violations, and reporting on people in the military deciding to refuse one specific vaccine--it's a great time. Ken's got a new story out about how the leaders of the Senate GOP endorsed ‘Afghan Resistance' have actually fled the country.

It's a joke, but it gets to a significant issue: the problems that service members are facing do involve bad organizational practice, but they aren't about 'wokeness' and the only people complaining about that are probably not worth listening to.

ACCORDING to media reports there was great elation among Palestinians when the news broke that six political prisoners had succeeded in tunnelling their way to freedom from the high security Gilboa prison in northern Israel. The six were Zakaria Zubeidi; brothers Muhammad and Mahmoud al-Arida; Eham Kamamji,;Yacoub Kadiri; and Munadil Nafayat. Photographs after the escape show a hole in the floor of their communal shower cubicle and an exit hole outside the wall of the prison in full view of an observation tower. Palestinian people demonstrated in solidarity with the escapees and with Palestinian prisoners. Currently, there are approximately 4,750 Palestinians being held in dozens of prison facilities across Israel. These include 42 females, 200 children, and 550 administrative detainees (internees).

Let's play a game. We'll call it Two Business Truths and a Lie. Which one of these three statements is false? Thomas Alva Edison said: “I never did a day's work in my life. It was all fun.” Owners and CEOs who “let loose” in the office often lose the respect of their employees. One element of Google's success as a company has been office Nerf-gun battles. Playing games and encouraging others to have a great time at work is a passion for Dr. Bob Nelson, co-author of the new book, “Work Made Fun Gets Done: Easy Ways to Boost Energy, Morale, and Results.” Dr. Bob, who has worked with 80% of the Fortune 500 companies, knows that office play is a serious business. This week, he and host Dean Rotbart go mano a mano to see which one of them has the finer-tuned lie detector. But don't worry, it's all in good fun.

Bob Tiede is an expert at asking great questions and teaching other people to ask great questions. Bob has a blog called Leading with Questions, where he just celebrated his ninth anniversary. The blog is followed by leaders in more than 190 different countries. Bob is also the author of four very popular books: Now That's a Great Question, 339 Questions Jesus Asked, Great Leaders Ask Questions, and the Little Book of Big Leading with Questions Quotes. In today's episode we'll be discussing the best strategies to become a good leader in our businesses by asking questions. What makes a good leader? In 1997, Navy Captain D. Michael Abrashoff, took over command of the USS Benfold, one of America's warships. Morale on that ship was the lowest in the Navy at that time and 18 months after Abrashoff took over as captain, morale was the highest in the Navy. His key strategy to solve this problem was to listen.
Kelvin Washington fills in for Bill Handel. What are we to expect of ways to handle COVID heading into the future? The Paralympics opened with empty stands but a bigger stage. The Jeopardy! hosting saga continues and has become a cautionary morality tale. And Wayne wraps up the segment with a story of a hacker with 'a heart of gold'.
Trust us. We know. Morale is low amongst the Black & Gold and its supporters. LAFC is not accustomed to losing, let alone losing four matches in a row. But that's the reality we face in this tough moment. And even though you may not realize it, the club needs you more than ever. Max and Vince start the podcast with a call to everyone that backs the Black & Gold. Now, more than ever, the club needs your support as it navigates the toughest time in its history but also as it's set to host one of the biggest week's in history. We look back at the Vancouver loss. While you may not think it, there were positives to be had. The team created numerous big chances but confidence and execution still seem to elude LAFC - a good bounce off a post wouldn't hurt either. Then, Max and Vince get you ready for the upcoming all-star week and events. The MLS-Liga MX All-Star Game is a historic event for the league, the club, and the city. Let's show up and show out for our club and our city.
