Private research university in Illinois, United States
At colleges and universities across the country, a heated battle is playing out right now over workers' right to organize and have a say over how the institutions they keep afloat with their labor are run. From graduate student-worker unionization efforts and strikes at Temple University, the University of California, Columbia University, Johns Hopkins, Northwestern University, Northeastern University, the University of Chicago, and Indiana University, to faculty strikes (and near-strikes) at the University of Illinois at Chicago, The New School, Howard University, etc., to workers across the higher ed sector striking in the UK, the academic labor movement is one of the most explosive sites of labor struggle right now. Meanwhile, the administrative class is working overtime to not only slow down this movement, but to squash it altogether. As we speak, full-time and adjunct faculty at Rutgers University are prepared to strike for the first time in school history after months and months of bad-faith bargaining and union-busting from the university administration; at the same time, the Duke University administration has not only refused to acknowledge its graduate student-workers' right to unionize, but it has vowed to go to the National Labor Relations Board in the hopes of stripping that right from graduates at all private universities. In this panel episode, we talk with worker-organizers from Duke and Rutgers about the struggles taking place at their institutions and across higher ed. Panelists include: Matt Thomas, a PhD student in the English Department at Duke University and co-chair of the Duke Graduate Student Union; Kristina Mensik, a PhD student in the Political Science Department at Duke University and a member of the Duke Graduate Student Union; Bryan Sacks, an adjunct professor of Religion and Philosophy at Rutgers and vice president of the Rutgers Adjunct Faculty Union (PTLFC-AAUP-AFT); Todd Wolfson, associate professor of Journalism and Media Studies at Rutgers and general vice president of Rutgers AAUP-AFT Additional links/info below...

This week on Maximum Mom, your host Elise Buie is joined by Michelle Bomberger. Michelle founded Equinox in 2005 to provide business leaders a more transparent, responsive, and business focused solution for their legal needs. Over the past 17 years, she's morphed the business model to offer a fixed fee General Counsel Services solution giving business leaders the confidence and freedom to include legal in their strategic and tactical planning -- they have a relationship with their lawyer and they know what they are paying, when they'll get a response, and that the solution is right for their business. It's a tough model to manage and she's learned a ton about how to make this work for her clients and for her own business. When Michelle started Equinox in 2005, she had a 1 year old at home and was pregnant with her second child. Michelle's kids have grown up with Equinox a part of their lives -- but also having their mom in their lives! While they've seen her work a lot over the years - and seen the ups and downs of being an entrepreneur and employer, she's always been there for them. Michelle committed early on to picking them up from school, taking them where they needed to go, and participating in what was important to them. These were priorities for Michelle and forced her to make decisions in her business and her life to make these work for her family. Michelle has an undergraduate degree in business from the University of Notre Dame and a JD/MBA from Northwestern University. She is an active member and member of the Board of Directors of the Seattle Chapter of Entrepreneurs' Organization and a member of the Board of Bellevue LifeSpring and Youth Theatre Northwest.04:42 The start of the law firm and having little children 11:55 When the firm office encourages the flexibility needed for motherhood and work 14:07 Strategic misses that are happening right now17:47 Using fixed price 23:42 Books recommended by Michelle that have really shifted her thinking 29:25 How does Michelle streamline the administrative burden 37:55 Tips for how to succeed in life as “mom” and as a law firm owner! 40:55 Tips for handling email inbox #rabbithole Connect with Michelle: Website Facebook Twitter LinkedIn YouTube Links Mentioned: Book: Range by Daivd Epseen Book: Traction by Gino Wickman Book: Crucial Accountability by Kerry Patterson and Joseph Grenny, Ron McMillian, Al Switzler, David Maxfield Book: The One Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan

On this episode of SPS, we first focus on our Annual International Convention (March 29–April 1), which will take place in Chicago, at the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, & the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Planning committee members, Ryan & Ethan introduce the convention theme, panels, and historical concerns across the upcoming events. Our second segment is a deep dive into the Platypus archives on the question of imperialism & anti-imperialism, prompted by the one-year anniversary of the Ukrainian War, and the twentieth anniversary of the Iraq War. Members, Sunit & Farsad, join Lisa and Rebekah to reflect on the Platypus panels on the Ukraine crisis a year ago, and on the recent developments of the anti-imperialist and anti-fascist Left. They go back to the founding moment of Platypus and the very first panel "Imperialism: what is it, why should we be against it?" (2007).

Ferrona Lie is the CEO and co-founder of near Technology, Inc., a Northwestern University-spinout startup providing personalized tech coaching to enable all individuals to use technology to stay connected with their loved ones, stress-free.The idea stemmed from the founders' shared experiences trying to help their parents and other older relatives with tech issues involving smart phones, tablets, and computers. Ferrona and her business partner realized that as people begin to move out of the regular workforce, the usual tech support offered by companies' IT departments was no longer available and this left a void in people's lives.By getting to know their clients, the staff at near is able to assign a specific "near neighbor" to each person, someone who will help that client with their problems on an on-going basis - like a personal trainer for technology support. Their goal is to teach each client to become self-sufficient, not to do the work for them.Support is currently offered in person in Chicago, Detroit, and San Francisco, but working through Zoom, it's possible to get support wherever you might be. You can reach out to Ferrona and the team through their website, https://feelnear.com and you can schedule a free consultation by emailing them at email@example.com or by calling (847) 994-4111.This podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Podsights - https://podsights.com/privacy

Season 5, episode 5. The Russian invasion of Ukraine has posed an existential crisis for numerous multilateral institutions, worsening several ongoing global issues such as food insecurity while also upending the architecture of European Security. Few organizations understand that or deal with that more than the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. For this week's episode, we chatted with Allison Hart, Senior Advisor and Chief of Staff to the OSCE Secretary General, Helga Maria Schmid. She shared how the organization operates, the unique challenge of having one of its member states upend the issue they are most focused on, how they worked to ease tensions between Russia and Ukraine before the invasion, and how they can be part of the solution to the current crisis. Allison Hart is the Senior Advisor and Chief of Staff to the OSCE Secretary General, Helga Maria Schmid. She took up this role in Vienna in February 2022. Prior to joining the OSCE, Allison served in a number of roles at NATO Headquarters in Brussels, including as Special Advisor to the Deputy Secretary General, Executive Officer of NATO's Public Diplomacy Division, and most recently as Head of the Human Security Unit. Allison began her career as an entrepreneur in Chicago where she launched and managed two successful businesses before pursuing international relations. In Washington, she coordinated a foreign policy team for a major political campaign and spent several years at The Brookings Institution on projects related to national security and transatlantic relations. Allison holds a Bachelor of Arts in Middle East Language & Civilization from Northwestern University and a Master of Arts in European Studies & International Economics from Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. NOTE: Any views expressed are strictly her own and do not necessarily reflect the views of the OSCE or any member state. And as a special treat for this episode, the interview was conducted by ISD Dean and Virginia Rusk Fellow Nathanial Haft. Nate Haft is a career Foreign Service Officer. He most recently served as a senior policy advisor on the U.S. delegation to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague.

Thought-Provoking Quotes “What stands out first and foremost about women and sex is that we are so completely objectified from the time we're little. That's the nature of patriarchy, is to objectify women. And we learn to objectify ourselves. I don't know how it is for you, but I know I have forever related to my body as a forever fixer-upper project.”- Dr. Alexandra Solomon “There's an idea that sexiness is defined from the outside in. So in my book, "Taking Sexy Back," that's what we're taking back. We're taking back this idea that sexiness is externally defined. That actually, our “sexy” lives right here inside of us, and it always has. Your sexuality is a part of yourself. It's a part of who you are. It's your embodied relationship with touch and physical expression and pleasure and creativity and play.” - Dr. Alexandra Solomon “There's going to be dry spells. There's going to be mismatched libidos. There's going to be menopause. There's going to be childbirth and job changes and medical diagnoses. Things are going to happen. So I want couples to be together, shoulder to shoulder, looking at the problem together. It's not my problem or your problem. It's us looking at our sexual connection. How do we as a couple cultivate this, nurture it, tweak it over time? Making love as 50-year-olds is going to look and feel different than making love as 23-year-olds.” - Dr. Alexandra Solomon “Recovery from trauma is not just about sexual pain or sadness or post-traumatic stress symptoms stopping. Recovery from trauma is also about reclaiming pleasure, reclaiming your right to pleasure, reclaiming a sense of feeling safe inside of your body. I think our capacity for healing is limitless.” - Dr. Alexandra Solomon “We think that if we're sex positive, it means that we're these super confident vixens and divas, and that we have to be up for anything. But we all struggle with this idea of, "Wait, can I be sex positive and a bit timid? Can I be sex positive and what we would call, quote-unquote, 'vanilla,' or not super interested in being kinky or pushing edges? Sex positivity basically means coming in with the idea that sex is natural and normal, and we're all sexual, and what we're interested in is not weird or pathological. It's coming in from a foundation of positivity.” - Dr. Alexandra Solomon “Sex problems in a relationship are always the responsibility of both people. It's not about figuring out whose fault the issue is. When I bring up a problem or a concern with my partner, it's about “us”. It's about, "I love us, I believe in us, I value us, which is why I want to talk about this question, observation or concern I have." It's not about throwing our partner under the bus or telling them they're doing it wrong. It's about starting from that place of, "I love us, and this matters.” - Dr. Alexandra Solomon “It's important to examine patterns in your own relationship with your sexuality and identify how things from your childhood impact your sexual relationship to yourself and others even 20 years later. Even seemingly simple things like your 6th grade sex-ed class can have an impact.” - Dr. Alexandra Solomon Guest's Links Dr. Solomon's Website Dr. Solomon's Instagram - @dr.alexandra.solomon Dr. Solomon's Twitter - @ahsolomon Dr. Solomon's Facebook - @dralexandrasolomon Dr. Solomon's YouTube - @alexandrahs1 Books & Resources Mentioned in This Episode Reimagining Love Podcast Dr. Solomon's books: Loving Bravely & Taking Sexy Back E-Course: Marriage 101 for the Grown and Sexy Connect with Jen!

The Majority Report with Sam Seder
Sam and Emma host Kari Lydersen, journalism lecturer at Northwestern University and staff writer at Midwest Energy News to discuss her recent piece at In These Times entitled "The Case for Nationalizing the Railroads." Then, they're joined by Bethany Kosmicki of the Temple University Graduate Students Association (TUGSA), to discuss their recent ratifying of a tentative agreement between their association and the University. First, Emma and Sam run through updates on Russia downing a US drone, the DOJ and Fed's responses to SVB's failure, the 5th circuit abortion pill case, environmental lawsuits over Biden's approval of the Willow project, the Senate repealing their authorization of the Iraq war, and some brand new bank runs, before diving into the labor celebrations around Michigan repealing their right to work policy and starting a new life for labor in the state. Kari Lydersen then joins as she dives right into the recent era of mass consolidation in the US freight rail industry alongside a shift towards “precision scheduling” that emphasizes efficiency, sidelining track segments, lines, and jobs that they saw as unprofitable, before parsing deeper through who this “efficiency” actually serves (the C-suite), as it undercuts the workforce, leaves shippers entirely at the whims of the rail companies when it comes to scheduling, and ultimately leaves these companies as shells of their former selves. Next, Lydersen, Sam, and Emma assess the massive boom in profits that the freight rail industry has seen over the last decade and a half, before wrapping up the interview by tackling what a nationalization of the freight rail industry would entail, and why it's actually a lot more feasible than it might sound. Bethany Kosmicki reflects on the culmination of 6 weeks of striking with TUGSA, as she, Sam, and Emma discuss the importance of understanding striking as both a last-ditch effort and a tactic that workers must be willing to exercise, before wrapping up the interview with a conversation on the future of US labor relations with a younger generation that understands their value. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma tackle Bethany ‘Grandma Killer' Mendel going catatonic as she's asked what “woke” means, and Larry Kudlow blames SVB's collapse on “Woke Banking.” They also walk through revelations around the Atlanta PD's murder of Cop City protester Tortaguita, Dalton from Ohio talks about ghost kitchens, and Dr. Karl from west Michigan discusses Germany's relationship with Israel. Ben Shapiro freaks out about Europeans going swimming topless, and Colin from Nebraska runs through updates on State Sen.

Hour 3 - Good Tuesday morning! Here's what Nick Reed covers this hour: Former President Trump's policies at the United States-Mexico border helped deter illegal immigration, while President Biden's policies are encouraging record-setting inflows, a new study suggests. The study, conducted by Rice University's Baker Institute for Public Policy, compares the size and scale of migrant caravans under Trump versus those that have arrived under the Biden administration. IQ scores have decreased in the US for the first time in decades, new research from scientists at Northwestern University and the University of Oregon suggests.

Before and during WWII, German corporations went from the abandonment of Jewish colleagues, through profiting off the dispossession and murder of Jews, to working Jews to death. The leading executives of these companies embodied the “thoughtlessness,” the indifference to the people on the receiving end of their deeds. The actions taken by most of them, weren't just a means to keep their businesses running , but an opportunity to profit and shine - a "banality of evil" with deadly and lucrative results. In this episode, we hear about some of these executives, and some of these companies - several of which still manufacture and distribute products we may find ourselves using today.Featured guest: Peter Hayes, Emeritus professor at Northwestern University, and the former chair of the academic committee at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

School of Embodied Arts Podcast with Jenna Ward
Today on the podcast, we're discussing somatic practices to help recognize and unhook from the embodied impacts of systemic oppression with Cultural Somatics Practitioner, Facilitator, and Author Kelsey Blackwell. When we start contemplating the question… How did we all get so disembodied, one quickly arrives at a few core factors. One of them is colonization & white supremacy. The impact these systems have on *every* *single* *body* is profound. Whether our identity is black, white, or persons of culture/color. From perfectionism, body shame, keeping silent, controlling & generally feeling like we're not enough. Many (most) common challenges modern women face have roots in the culture & practices of past/current colonization. Exploring how these systems are alive & living within us is a key inquiry if we are to shift from the “I have so much work to do on myself” mindset, and into the greater realization that ‘it's not you, it's the system”. This conversation is also a wonderful exploration into reconnecting with your ancestral lineage in embodied ways - even if you hold multiple lineages or have no idea what your lineage actually is. One of our school's teachers, Sharon Kaur, recently pointed me in the direction of Kelsey's work on embodied liberation - thank you Sharon. In this episode, we discuss: What is a colonized body? Kelsey shares her personal discovery from “there's something wrong with me” to rediscovering the movement & songs of her lineage and the power of decolonizing practices The Patterns of Emboidment in colonized bodies & how it shows up We speak about ‘narrowing the body', into smaller size & space How can we find our sincere ancestral practices when we are amelange of people & places If you're seeking initiation or a textbook of practices for your lineage Kelsey offers some significant perspective shifts We dive into three delicious embodied, decolonizing practices lead by Kelsey Kelsey works specifically with women of colour, however all identities will take something away from this rich conversation. Kelsey Blackwell, MS is a cultural somatics practitioner and author dedicated to supporting women of color to trust and follow the guidance of the body so we may powerfully radiate our worth, dignity and wisdom in a world that sorely needs this brilliance. As a facilitator, coach, and speaker, she has brought abolitionist embodied practices to such diverse groups as riders on Bay Area Rapid Transit trains to students at Stanford University to the offices of LinkedIn. She works 1:1 with clients as well as leads the eight-week group program, Decolonizing the Body. Kelsey is the author of the viral article, Why People of Color Need Spaces Without White People, published by The Arrow Journal. She is a Certified InterPlay Leader, Strozzi Certified Somatic Coach, and holds a master's degree in Publishing from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. In addition to being impactful, Kelsey believes working towards personal and collective liberation must also bring joy. She lives in San Francisco, California. Also, good to know… Earlier this year our school recognized Jen' work in our 2022 Excellence In Coaching Celebrations in the category of Founders Flourishing Award which recognizes a practitioner in the multi-dimensional mastery of her body of work. Awarded by Founder Jenna Ward, this practitioner's work transcends categories.

What role does design have in solving the world's biggest problems? What can designers add? Some would say that designers played a role in getting us into our current mess. Can they also get us out of it? How can we design solutions for problems in complex systems that are evolving, emerging, and changing?To answer these questions, we talked with Don Norman about his book, Design for a Better World: Meaningful, Sustainable, Humanity Centered. In his book, Don proposes a new way of thinking, one that recognizes our place in a complex global system where even simple behaviors affect the entire world. He identifies the economic metrics that contribute to the harmful effects of commerce and manufacturing and proposes a recalibration of what we consider important in life.Don Norman is Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Cognitive Science and Psychology and founding director of the Design Lab at the University of California, San Diego from which he has retired twice. Don is also retired from and holds the emeritus title from Northwestern University, the Nielsen Norman Group and a few other organizations. He was an Apple Vice President, has been an advisor and board member for numerous companies, and has three honorary degrees. His numerous books have been translated into over 20 languages, including The Design of Everyday Things and Living with Complexity.It was a true pleasure to talk with Don, someone who we have read and followed for decades. His work is central to much of today's design practices and we loved talking with him about where he hopes design may take us.Learn more about Don Norman.Learn more about Don's book Design for a Better World.If you enjoy our podcasts, please subscribe and leave a positive rating or comment.

Gonzalo Soltero's book Conspiracy Narratives South of the Border: Bad Hombres Do the Twist (Routledge, 2022) examines four conspiracy narratives from Mexico that push the boundaries of conspiracy research in a new direction. They include narratives about Lee Harvey Oswald's visit to Mexico City, shortly before he apparently assassinated JFK, and street gangs across borders and how some of our worst fears are projected into them. ‘Lights Out' and ‘Burundanga' are popular narratives across the border, but Soltero provides us with their contextualization in Mexico and tells us how they transformed from urban legends into conspiracy theories. Mexico is a fertile terrain for conspiracy theories due to its complex social environment and its proximity to the United States, which not only made it a strategic platform during the Cold War but also today's land of bad hombres that according to Donald Trump should be fended off with a wall. Conspiracy theories are always narrative in nature, telling us about the state of the world and the actors behind such states of affairs. This narrativity tends to be so enthralling that they have increasingly become the substance of entertainment and even politics. This volume analyses Mexican conspiracy narratives, explaining how they produce meaning in a variety of different social and political contexts.

After twenty years of America’s post-9/11 wars and the US military’s struggle to build capable and effective security forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, there is an important discussion taking place about what role security force assistance should play for the United States in the very different strategic environment that is taking shape. Will it be a mission that we'll be required to do in order to compete with Russia and China? Or will it become tangential to our preparations for large-scale combat operations? And given the challenges we faced over the past two decades, what needs to happen to achieve better outcomes in the future? Will Reno, a professor at Northwestern University, and Franky Matisek, an Air Force officer and associate professor at the US Air Force Academy, have researched the topic deeply, including conducting hundreds of interviews in the field. They join this episode to discuss their findings.

We talk with Dr. Susan Corwith about talent development, assessment, and advocacy. No student is born with a set destination, and talent development takes many forms. Talents, passions, and goals are discovered through exploration, challenge, dedication, and mentorship. For over 20 years, Dr. Corwith has been active in gifted education, working as a K-12 educator, gifted program coordinator, administrator, and researcher. She also is an instructor in the School of Education and Social Policy at Northwestern and serves on the board of the Illinois Association for Gifted Children (IAGC).
