When we think of racism, we often think of actions, obstacles, systems. What we often overlook is the power of images, movement, art, and words. They represent the power of both harm and hope. Elizabeth Alexander in her new book, The Trayvon Generation, uses this prism to share poetry, art, and film. And along with her exquisite, evocative language, we find ourselves educated, provoked and challenged. Elizabeth is singularly equipped to tell us this story. She is a poet. Many were introduced to her when she read her poem “Praise Song for the Day” at President Obama's inauguration. She is a bestselling, award-winning author and is now the president of the Mellon Foundation, the nation's largest funder in the arts, culture, and humanities. But at her core, she is an educator, having had that role as chair of African-American studies at Yale University. In her new book, that is just what she does. She educates us, and the poet in her delivers the education with lyrical beauty. Elizabeth Alexander is a prize-winning and New York Times bestselling author, renowned poet, educator, scholar, and cultural advocate. Her most recent book, The Trayvon Generation (2022), is a galvanizing meditation on the power of art and culture to illuminate America's unresolved problem with race and the challenges facing young Black America. Among the fifteen books she has authored or co-authored, her memoir, The Light of the World, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Biography and the National Book Critics Circle Award in 2015 and her poetry collection American Sublime was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry in 2006. Notably, Dr. Alexander composed and recited “Praise Song for the Day” for President Barack Obama's 2009 inauguration. Over the course of an esteemed career in education, she has held distinguished professorships at Smith College, Columbia University, and Yale University, where she taught for fifteen years and chaired the African American Studies Department. Dr. Alexander is currently president of the Mellon Foundation, the nation's largest funder in the arts, culture, and humanities. * Roxanne Coady is owner of R.J. Julia, one of the leading independent booksellers in the United States, which—since 1990—has been a community resource not only for books, but for the exchange of ideas.

Oil prices have slipped below 100 dollars a barrel in the past couple of days. Weighing on crude price is the US Energy Information Administration's weekly inventory report, which suggested an unexpected increase in US crude oil stocks and drop in gasoline demand, despite ongoing summer driving season in the US.  While global central banks, especially the US Federal Reserve, has hiked rates to tame inflation and kill demand, OPEC+ has decided to raise its oil output goal by 100,000 barrels per day starting September. The increase is equivalent to 0.1 per cent of global demand.  It follows weeks of speculation that Biden's trip to the Middle East and Washington's clearance of missile defence system sales to Riyadh and the United Arab Emirates will bring more oil to the world market. Notably, the increase of 100,000 bpd will be one of the smallest since OPEC quotas were introduced in 1982. Ravindra Rao of Kotak Securities, for instance, expects prices to slip further in the immediate short-term. “Crude has hit fresh lows which indicates weaker sentiment. However, supply concerns may keep a floor to price close to $90/bbl level,” says Ravindra Rao, VP & Head of Commodity Research, Kotak Securities Brent prices have been volatile thus far in 2022, as the oil market reacted to the geopolitical developments amid recession fears.  Paul Hickin, Director of S&P Global Commodity Insights expects the Brent oil to climb and remain in a range of 100 - 120 dollars a barrel in the medium-term. Speaking to Business Standard, Hickin said, OPEC+ decision is a symbolic nod to the US. Spare capacity is at historic lows. Weak demand amid recession fears in the US and Europe. Russian supply has not come off as expected. Oil likely to stay over $100/barrel.  On Friday, all eyes will be on the outcome of the Reserve Bank of India's meeting on interest rates. Analysts expect the Indian central bank to hike repo rate between 35 - 50 basis points. That apart, stock specific action will continue amid the ongoing result season.

In Florida, good old Ron Desantis and company have decided that veterans should be able to teach with no credential. In Arizona, Gov. Doug Ducey and friends have decided that military service is not necessary, and folks who are simply enrolled in college should be enough. And not to be left behind, the teacher shortage has so heavily impacted rural districts in Texas that many of them are now turning to making their vacancies more attractive by offering a 4 day school week.

Thank you.IAS BlogsTo read blogs click here.Shift in England’s drinking during COVID-19 could lead to 150,000 more cases of disease by 2035 🎵 Podcast feature 🎵A new IAS and HealthLumen modelling study suggests changes in alcohol consumption during the COVID-19 pandemic are likely to lead to thousands of additional cases of diseases and premature deaths.The pandemic saw heavier drinkers consuming more alcohol and this trend is continuing. If consumption does not return to 2019 levels or lower, England could see an additional 147,892 cases and 9,914 additional premature deaths from nine alcohol-related diseases, costing the NHS £1.2bn.Three scenarios were modelled between 2022 and 2035 to project how recent changes in drinking may affect health harm from nine alcohol-related diseases: high blood pressure, stroke, liver cirrhosis, and six forms of cancer. The research found:Joint Lead on the study Dr Sadie Boniface said:“Much of the health harm from alcohol is from chronic diseases which take years to develop. Our results shed light on the long-term impacts of recent changes in drinking patterns.“These increases in alcohol harm, lives lost, and costs to the NHS projected in our study are not inevitable.“Deaths from alcohol are at record levels, and this research should act as a ‘wake-up call’ to take alcohol harm seriously as part of recovery planning from the pandemic.”A very similar modelling study by the University of Sheffield was published at the same time and backed up IAS’ findings. The Sheffield study looked at more diseases across a longer period of time, so projected higher alcohol-related deaths and hospital admissions.Dr Boniface was interviewed on the BBC News, explaining the study findings and implications:If you missed our launch webinar, where Dr Boniface and Sheffield’s lead author Colin Angus presented their studies, you can catch up on YouTube here.The global burden of poor analysisIn mid-July, a new Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study was published in The Lancet. The GBD study is a long-running observational epidemiological study. Their new publication was widely covered in the media with most either stating that “alcohol is never good for people under 40” or “Young people should not drink alcohol but older people may benefit from small amounts”.The study found that for men aged 15-39, the recommended amount of alcohol before “risking health loss” was just 0.136 of a standard drink a day. For women of the same age, the “theoretical minimum risk exposure level” was 0.273 drinks – about a quarter of a standard drink a day.Among those aged 40-64, safe alcohol consumption levels ranged from about half a standard drink a day to almost two standard drinks. For those aged 65 or older, the risks of “health loss from alcohol consumption” were reached after consuming a little more than three standard drinks a day.The senior author, Dr Emmanuela Gakidou, professor of health metrics sciences at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine, said:“Our message is simple: young people should not drink, but older people may benefit from drinking small amounts.”This is in contrast to their study four year ago, which said that even the occasional drink was harmful to health and suggested governments should advise people to abstain entirely.Colin Angus wrote an IAS blog criticising elements of the study, for instance the study saying “older people may benefit from drinking small amounts” could be seen to suggest non-drinking older people should take up drinking for its supposed protective effects. Another major issue he flagged was that the study tells you “absolutely nothing about the difference in risks between age groups or the absolute risks that people are facing as a consequence of their drinking”.In the media Mr Angus said:“Younger people are, on average, much less likely to become ill or die from any cause than their older counterparts. Assessing how we should set drinking guidelines or prioritise interventions to minimise the total harm of alcohol requires an assessment of absolute, not relative risk.“The GBD’s own figures suggest that there are over 14 times as many alcohol-attributable deaths in the UK among 70-74 year-olds than 20-24 year olds, which rather contradicts the assertion in this new study that we should focus on the drinking of younger age groups.”Statistician Sir David Spiegelhalter also criticised the study on Twitter:Minimum pricing has never been promoted as a panaceaIn the 22nd of July’s BMJ Editorial, IAS’ Dr Sadie Boniface discussed the new WHO report on minimum pricing policies for alcohol, explaining the report structure and stating that minimum pricing “is an effective part of the policy toolbox for reducing harm from alcohol”.Following a number of recent reports that minimum pricing has failed in Scotland, Dr Boniface writes in the Editorial:“Minimum pricing has never been promoted as a panacea, so arguments that it does not singlehandedly eliminate harm from alcohol can be rejected. Proponents do not claim, for example, that minimum pricing is enough to reduce alcohol consumption and harm among people who are dependent on alcohol, for whom the wider healthcare and support needs are obvious. Minimum pricing is one policy in the toolbox, needed alongside others as part of a coherent strategy.”Dr Boniface discusses what a coherent policy landscape would look like, with population level policies implemented, effectively monitored and evaluated, alongside a suitably resourced and accessible healthcare system offering support. She explains that policies have to be independent from industry influence, an influence which remains a major challenge to a coherent approach.Pubs: “lost forever” or consolidated?According to real estate consultancy Altus Group, there were 39,970 pubs in June, down by more than 7,000 since 2012. Altus said after struggling through Covid the industry now faces soaring prices and higher energy costs.Altus said that pubs which had "disappeared" from the communities they once served had either been demolished or converted for other purposes, meaning that they were "lost forever".A 2017 IAS publication found publicans often attributed pub closures to failures of their managers who are unable to respond to shifting consumer expectations. It also found supermarkets undercutting pubs in price was the major threat to pubs’ commercial viability. As shown below, the gap between on and off-trade consumption has been steadily widening for many years:Another reason for pub closures is consolidation of business into bigger bars. This ONS report in 2018 showed that while small pubs were closing, big pub chains were consolidating business, with employee numbers and overall revenue remaining relatively constantThe Government said:"We've cut taxes for hundreds of thousands of businesses by increasing the Employment Allowance while slashing fuel duty. We've also introduced a 50% business rates relief for eligible High Street businesses and prevented bill increases by freezing the business rates multiplier, saving businesses £4.6bn over the next five years."Health Disparities white paper delayedThe Health Disparities white paper – due to be published in late July – has been delayed for the summer and will only go ahead if given the green light by the new Prime Minister.The white paper is set to include further legislation to increase alternatives to tobacco products and increase alcohol-free products in pubs.An ITV article said:“In recent weeks charities and other health groups have been pushing for the paper to introduce preventative measures and measures that have a population wide focus. Sources said there was a risk that a future pm could drop this agenda - although pointed out that the policies had been framed as "non-nanny state" - perhaps to try to make sure it had Cabinet support.”The white paper is said to include a change to the classification of no and low alcohol beers. Currently no-alcohol has to be 0.5% or lower and low-alcohol 1.2% or lower. This could rise to 1% and 3% respectively.The change is said to be designed to help people cut down alcohol consumption “by helping brewers make low-strength options more appealing”.Professor Sir Ian Gilmore, chair of the AHA, suggested that more evidence was needed on low-alcohol products but said “if it could be done in a way without brand promotion, we would be supportive”.However, Gilmore said the plan was “tinkering round the edges” and that the government had “consistently put its head in the sand on evidence-based policies that have been shown worldwide to reduce harm”, mainly by increasing prices and reducing availability.Boris Johnson “minimises” sexual harassment and blames alcoholWhile being question by the Liaison Committee about his handling of the conduct of former deputy chief whip Chris Pincher, Boris Johnson said there’s a problem with alcohol in Westminster and that “some people simply can’t take their drink”.Conservative committee member Caroline Nokes MP asked him “have you just sat there and told us that alcohol is an excuse?”, to which Boris disagreed.In the resignation letter of parliamentary private secretary Mark Fletcher, he wrote about the Pincher assault:“You suggested that the events of that night were the fault of the colleagues who were present for allowing him to drink too much. Such a view seems to me an attempt to absolve Mr Pincher of his actions and, in so doing, to be an apologist for someone who has committed sexual assault.”Ian Hamilton, of the University of York, wrote in the Independent that alcohol should not be used as an excuse for predatory sexual behaviour as this displaces responsibility from the perpetrator. He wrote:“While the victim is left with the impression that it was the drug rather than the person responsible, the perpetrator tries to evade taking responsibility for what they did. This hardly gives anyone hope that this predatory behaviour will change. Even if predators become abstinent from alcohol, this won’t magically displace their thought processes and perception about what is permissible and what isn’t, in relation to others.”Industry arguments dominate Commons debate on alcohol tax reformOn 7 July the Commons debated the proposed reform to alcohol duty, with discussion of its impact on the alcohol industry – particularly the wine industry – dominating proceedings.Welsh Conservative Alun Cairns opened the debate and asked for “minor adjustments” to the strength bands and Small Brewers’ Relief.Various other MPs spoke of the new system being too complicated, with too many tax bands, and how wine producers will find it difficult as wine strength is dependent on the weather.Liberal Democrat MP Daisy Cooper said: “Overall, the alcohol duty reforms proposed by the Government just tinker around the edges in dealing with the pressures facing hospitality”, seemingly not recognising the importance of the public health element of the reform.Shadow Exchequer Secretary, Abena Oppong-Asare MP, said Labour agrees the system should be simplified and be more consistent, and be balanced across public health and supporting business. She said the wine bands should be looked at, as the new system has too much red tape, as should changes to beer duty which currently would help bigger brewers more than small brewers.Oppong-Asare went on to point out the cider exceptionalism, with it having a lower rate than beer in the proposals, and asked the Treasury to explain why this is when strong cheap cider causes so much harm.Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Lucy Frazer MP responded to the majority of the concerns and said they will be looked into. She did highlight that public health was a major reason for the reform. Alcohol packaging captures the attention of and creates appeal among young peopleA new Stirling study has highlighted the impact alcohol packaging has on capturing the attention of and creating appeal among young people.50 current drinkers aged 18-35 participated in 8 focus groups, in which they were asked about a range of alcoholic products.Daniel Jones, the lead author, said:“Five main themes emerged from our data: the ubiquity of alcohol packaging; its appeal and ability to catch attention; its association with particular occasions and activities; its ability to inform perceptions; and its engagement of both visual and non-visual senses – taste, touch, sound and smell.”Notably, some participants reported purchasing alcohol products solely on pack appeal, with one saying: “I don’t actually like beer, but I bought it specifically because I liked the packaging”.Drinkers preferred exclusive-looking “limited edition” packaging over large price marks portraying the drink as value for money, as they felt value drinks were inferior. Most retained expensive or “cool” empty bottles for display or collection.Matt Lambert of the Portman Group said:“This study demonstrates that the packaging of a product is designed to appeal to different audiences, something that would ring true across all forms of marketing and is not in itself a surprise.”He added that the group's code of practice ensures alcohol is not marketed inappropriately and highlighted how adherence to the code had contributed to “over a decade of decline in underage drinking in Scotland”.Alcohol Toolkit Study: updateThe monthly data collected is from English households and began in March 2014.

The protocol shows us how to rebalance these factors using lifestyle modifications like taking B12, eliminating gluten, or improving oral hygiene. The results are impressive. Of the first ten patients on the protocol, nine displayed significant improvement with 3-6 months; since then the protocol has yielded similar results with hundreds more. Now, The End of Alzheimer's brings new hope to a broad audience of patients, caregivers, physicians, and treatment centers with a fascinating look inside the science and a complete step-by-step plan that fundamentally changes how we treat and even think about AD. Dr. Dale Bredesen's career has been guided by a simple idea: that Alzheimer's as we know it is not just preventable, but reversible. Thanks to a dedicated pursuit of finding the science that makes this a reality, his idea has placed Dr. Bredesen at the vanguard of neurological research, and led to the discoveries that today underlie the ReCode Report.Dr. Bredesen earned his MD from Duke University Medical Center and served as Chief Resident in Neurology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) before joining Nobel laureate Stanley Prusiner's laboratory at UCSF as an NIH Postdoctoral Fellow. He held faculty positions at UCSF, UCLA and the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Bredesen also directed the Program on Aging at the Burnham Institute before joining the Buck Institute in 1998 as founding President and CEO.Dr. Bredesen's research explores previously uncharted territory in explaining the physical mechanism behind the erosion of memory seen in Alzheimer's disease and has opened the door to new approaches to treatment. This work has led to the identification of several new therapeutic processes that are showing remarkableearly results.Dr. Bredesen is a prodigious innovator in medicine, with over thirty patents to his name.

Gun Control and The Vaule Of Life (8:09)   Vitamin B6 Supplements In High Doses Can Calm Anxiety, Depression   University of Reading (UK), July 18, 2022 Taking high-dose vitamin B6 supplements may help to reduce feelings of anxiety and depression, a new study reveals. Researchers from the University of Reading in England report that young adults taking a dose 50 times the recommended daily dose reported feeling less anxious and depressed after a month. Vitamin B6 increases the body's production of GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid), a chemical that blocks impulses between nerve cells in the brain. Vitamin B6 is found naturally in a variety of foods, including salmon, tuna, chickpeas, and bananas.  Vitamin B6 helps the body produce a specific chemical messenger that inhibits impulses in the brain, and this study links this calming effect with reduced anxiety among the participants.” The study provides evidence lacking in previous studies as to what exactly drives the stress-reducing effects of marmite and multivitamins. More than 300 participants took either a placebo or Vitamin B6 or B12 supplements at 50 times the recommended amount – around 70mg. Each participant took one tablet a day with food. Vitamin B12 had little effect compared to the placebo, but B6 showed a statistically reliable difference. The team also detected subtle but harmless changes in visual performance, consistent with controlled levels of brain activity. Health officials in the United Kingdom recommend that people do not take too high a dose – more than 200mg a day – as it can lead to a loss of feeling in the arms and legs. In a few cases, this has become permanent in people who have taken very large doses for several months.   “Many foods, including tuna, chickpeas and many fruits and vegetables, contain Vitamin B6. However, the high doses used in this trial suggest that supplements would be necessary to have a positive effect on mood,” Dr. Field continues. “It is important to acknowledge that this research is at an early stage and the effect of Vitamin B6 on anxiety in our study was quite small compared to what you would expect from medication. However, nutrition-based interventions produce far fewer unpleasant side effects than drugs, and so in the future people might prefer them as an intervention.   Study Ranks Healthiest ‘Powerhouse' Vegetables, Which is #1?  William Paterson University, July 14   Research from William Paterson University attempted to rank fruits and vegetables according to the amount of nutrition within. In all, they list 41 “powerhouse” vegetables and fruits, scoring them according to the presence of 17 nutrients. The produce was scored by the presence of: fiber, potassium, protein, calcium, folate, vitamin D, vitamin A, vitamin B12, and more.   To make the study's “powerhouse” list, the researchers calculated each fruit or vegetable's “nutrient density” score based on the percentage of your daily need for each nutrient the food provides. (The study assumed a 2,000 calorie per day diet and 100 grams of each food.) The scores were capped to ensure that a fruit or vegetable that provides a huge amount of just a single nutrient wouldn't receive a disproportionately high overall score.” So, which earned the top spot? Super easy-to-grow watercress. Watercress scored an even 100, with Chinese cabbage closest behind with a score of 91.99. In third place was chard (89.27), followed by beet greens (87.08), spinach (86.43), and chicory (73.36).  Fruits scored lower, with red pepper at the top (41.26), followed by pumpkin (32.23), tomatoes (20.37), and lemons (18.72). Many of these are surprising considering they aren't the “superfruits” we are accustomed to hearing about. But, that's largely because of the nutrients measured in this study. Fruits like blueberries, that are considered healthiest by many, earn that spot because of their antioxidant levels. This study didn't capture the concentration of antioxidants, however.       Can listening to the Beatles improve your memory? New research says music just might stir the brain Northeastern University, July 19, 2022 When Paul McCartney wrote "Get Back," he never would have predicted how useful or relevant the song would become for music therapists. The song's refrain—"Get back to where you once belonged"—might as well be a therapist encouraging a dementia patient to recall a distant memory. In new research, Psyche Loui, an associate professor of music, is attempting to do exactly that. Published in Scientific Reports, Loui found that for older adults who listened to some of their favorite music, including The Beatles, connectivity in the brain increased. Specifically, Loui—and her multi-disciplinary team of music therapists, neurologists and geriatric psychiatrists—discovered that music bridged the gap between the brain's auditory system and reward system, the area that governs motivation. The researchers had a group of older adults between the ages of 54 and 89 from the Boston area listen to a playlist for an hour every day for eight weeks and journal about their response to the music afterward. Loui and the team would scan the participants' brains before and after listening in order to measure their neurological response. Playlists were highly personalized and featured a combination of the participants' self-selected songs, which ranged from The Beatles to Bruce Springsteen, and a preselected mix of classical pieces, pop and rock songs and new compositions.The most important lesson that we learned from the music therapist was that there is no one-size-fits-all for what kind of music works best," Loui said. What the researchers found was striking: Music was essentially creating an auditory channel directly to the medial prefrontal cortex, the brain's reward center. Notably, the medial prefrontal cortex "is one of the areas to lose its activity and functional connectivity in aging adults, especially in folks with dementia," Loui said. Music that was both familiar and well-liked tended to activate the auditory and reward areas more. However, the music that participants selected themselves provided an even stronger connection between these two areas of the brain.   DHA omega-3 linked to ‘significantly improved periodontal outcomes': Harvard data Harvard University, July 14 ,2022 Scientists from Harvard report that supplementation with DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) omega-3 may improve periodontal outcomes in people with periodontitis. Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that destroys the soft tissue and bone supporting the teeth. It is reportedly the second most common disease worldwide, with 30–50% of the US population suffering from it. Data published in the Journal of Dental Research indicated that DHA supplementation was associated with a decreased the average depth of the pockets between the teeth and the gums, and the gingival index, which is used to assess the extent of gum disease. In addition, inflammatory biomarkers in the gum tissue were significantly reduced. Participants were randomly assigned to receive either 2,000 mg per day of DHA or placebo (soy/corn oil) for three months. All of the participants also received 81 mg per day of aspirin. Results showed DHA levels in red blood cell membranes increased between 3.6% to 6.2%, whereas no such increases were observed in the placebo group. In addition to the improvements in pocket depth and gingival index, the researchers reported that levels of the inflammatory biomarkers C-reactive protein (CRP) and interleukin-1 beta (IL-1beta) decreased significantly in the DHA group.      This “Holy Herb' Shows Promise in Treating Alzheimer's Disease Yerba santa may also treat brain swelling in dementia patients Salk Institute, July 14, 2022 A shrub known as Yerba santa, dubbed “holy herb” in Spanish, appears to show promise in treating Alzheimer's disease, researchers say. It has the potential to reduce brain swelling in people with dementia.  Native to California, Yerba santa has long been used as a treatment for fevers, headaches, and other common ailments. But researchers at Salk's Cellular Neurobiology Laboratory believe it could be used to treat much more serious health problems. In fact, millions of dementia patients stand to benefit from the natural treatment, they claim. A molecule in the shrub called sterubin – the plant's most active component – could be the key to transforming millions of lives. The team found that sterubin had a significant anti-inflammatory effect on brain cells called microglia, which are involved in the development of Alzheimer's disease, among other ailments. The researchers further found that sterubin effectively removes iron. This is an important discovery, as iron contributes to nerve cell damage in the aging brain and neurodegenerative diseases. Sterubin was found to effectively reduce numerous causes of cell death in the nerve cells.   An inflammatory diet correlates with colorectal cancer risk The risk of developing colorectal cancer for individuals that follow a pro-inflammatory diet is two times higher than usual Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (Spain), July 15, 2022  Researchers from the Molecular Mechanisms and Experimental Therapy in Oncology program (Oncobell) of the Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL) and the Catalan Institute of Oncology (ICO) published in Nutrients the results of a multicenter study that unveils a correlation between inflammatory and antioxidant diets and the risk of developing colorectal and breast cancer.  "We have observed an association between the risk of developing colorectal cancer and the inflammatory potential of the diet. That is, the participants who followed an inflammatory diet had almost twice the risk of developing colorectal cancer, which is the 4th most frequent cancer worldwide", explains Dr. Mireia Obón. An inflammatory diet is usually characterized by the consumption of refined carbohydrates, red and processed meat, and saturated or trans fats. In an antioxidant diet, the consumption of vegetables, legumes, fruits and nuts predominates. "In this study we have focused on the role of diet, and specifically on its inflammatory and antioxidant capacity, as there is evidence that both chronic inflammation and oxidative stress influence the development of these two types of cancer", says Dr. Víctor Moreno. "Following a pro-inflammatory and pro-oxidant diet is a very important risk factor for colon cancer.  We should reorient our eating habits towards a Mediterranean diet, rich in fruits and vegetables, nuts, whole grains and healthy oils, such as olive oil and move away from a more pro-inflammatory diet", she argues.     OCCUPY PEACE & FREEDOM RALLY INFO Saturday, July 23 -- 2:00 pm Kingston, NY (at the historical 4 corners -- Crown and John Streets) Speakers: Gerald Celente Judge Andrew Napolitano Gary Null Scott Ritter Phil Giraldi (former CIA official) Live music, food and drink

With the pace of broadband subscriber growth showing signs of slowing after big surges during the early days of the pandemic, some service providers are expanding their influence into the management and security of IoT devices that are proliferating on the home network. While not all of those strategies have aligned perfectly among ISPs, an analysis of the data on the home Wi-Fi network can provide lots of insight about which brands and device types consumers are gravitating to. Plume, a data and cloud services specialist that manages Wi-Fi in more than 40 million homes worldwide, recently issued its latest Plume IQ report, with this one focused on the IoT brands driving the most consumer loyalty. The report found that Amazon is seemingly in the cat bird's seat, atop of Apple and Google. Notably, Amazon's position in the IoT market runs relatively independent of the smart phone being used while Apple's position is largely determined by whether the consumer is an iPhone user. Bill McFarland, Plume's chief technology officer, recently joined the Light Reading podcast with Editor-in-Chief Phil Harvey and Senior Editor Jeff Baumgartner to dig into the data and the numbers, extrapolate some broad IoT trends and explain how this kind of data can benefit the strategies of broadband operators. To pinpoint some of that activity and gather trends and insights, Plume uses AI and machine language techniques to enable "device typing" to determine what kind of device is connecting to the network. "It's not as easy as it might sound because there isn't a protocol or a standard message they send about what kind of device they are," McFarland said. "You have to kind of look at the way they're behaving, the protocols they are using and so forth, and then compare that with other devices you've seen of that type and you do a matching." Here's an outline of topics covered in this podcast:The technical basis of the Plume IQ report, and how it relies on data to uncover and identify industry trends and indicators. (1:40)Thoughts on why Amazon was high on the IoT brand loyalty list and why it seems to broadly attract consumers independent of the rest of their device ecosystem, including smartphones. (5:30) What other kind of data can be collected to help broadband service providers manage the home network and make better decisions that can cut down on the cost of their broadband delivery. (14:30)How the role of the service provider in IoT and IoT security is evolving as consumers continue to adopt more connected devices that hook into the home network. (17:00)Beyond the likes of Amazon, Apple and Google, what other products, brands and device types are making a mark in IoT? Where does Sonus and even connected cars, for example, fall in the pecking order? (26:30)— Jeff Baumgartner, Senior Editor, Light Reading See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

This week we're joined by two experts in the evolving world of CDR policy in Europe. Eli Mitchell-Larson from Carbon Gap and Lee Beck from the Clean Air Task Force. The E.U. is working on a certification standard for CDR to complement its existing climate plan. When completed, it will likely represent the largest jurisdiction with a comprehensive policy plan to scale up carbon removal. Last week the U.K. government sought public input on its own CDR effort. This particular policy effort aims to find business models that will help CDR scale by the end of this decade. The text of the release finds that a significant barrier to scaling up CDR is “the absence of a predictable revenue stream for negative emissions.” Notably, it also says that “the cost of deploying these techs is borne by polluting sectors to compensate for their remaining emissions.” Radhika, Eli, and Lee talk about how important these policies could turn out to be, what timeline they are on, and what their organizations are doing to support carbon removal in Europe. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/carbonremovalnewsroom/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/carbonremovalnewsroom/support

"Soldiers who refuse the vaccination order without an approved or pending exemption request are subject to adverse administrative actions, including flags, bars to service, and official reprimands," an Army spokesperson said in a statement. "In the future, Soldiers who continue to refuse the vaccination order without an exemption may be subject to additional adverse administrative action, including separation." There are 40,000 National Guard and 22,000 Reserve soldiers who haven't received the vaccine, making up 13% and 12% of their ranks, respectively. There were 7,767 temporary exemptions given in the National Guard and 6,457 in the Reserves, according to Army data. Only six permanent medical exemptions have been made nationally for the National Guard, without any religious exemptions. Not a single Reserve soldier has received a medical or religious exemption. Over 3,200 have pending exemptions, and the new protocol will not apply to them. "We're going to give every soldier every opportunity to get vaccinated and continue their military career," Director of the Army Guard Lt. Gen. Jon Jensen said in a statement. "We're not giving up on anybody until the separation paperwork is signed and completed." Meanwhile, the Reserves have only reached 73.6% of its recruiting goal in the 2021 fiscal year. The National Guard reached 80.6% of its 2021 goal and, so far, 48.1% of its 2022 goal. However, unvaccinated soldiers are allowed to fulfill their state active-duty orders, which are normally given by governors during short-term emergencies. The Army has 652,005 fully vaccinated soldiers and 261,578 who are partially vaccinated. https://thepostmillennial.com/64-percent-of-democrats-do-not-want-biden-to-run-for-re-election-in-2024?utm_campaign=64487 Only 1 percent of voters ages 18-29 'strongly approve' of Joe Biden A majority of Democrats do not want Joe Biden to seek reelection in 2024 according to a New York Times/Siena College poll released Monday. In a closer breakdown of the numbers, only 1 percent of voters between 18-29 years of age "strongly approve" of Biden's performance. 18 percent of that demographic "somewhat approve." The poll reflects that 64 percent of Democratic voters want Biden out of the 2024 race as the president is "hemorrhaging support" from his party. Of the reasons cited, 33 percent of those polled said the president's age was the primary factor for why they didn't want him to run. President Joe Biden is currently 79 years old, which makes him the oldest serving president in history. The president will be 82 in the 2024 election cycle. The 849 registered voters who were polled put the president's approval rating at 33 percent. In January, a Quinnipiac University poll also had Biden's approval rating at 33 percent. Accumulative poll data had Biden's approval dropping below 40 percent in February and the president hasn't peaked above that number since the winter. The poll New York Times/Siena College was conducted between July 5 and 7 and also reflected other reasons for Biden's disapproval. 32 percent of those polled said the president's job performance was the problem while 12 percent just wanted somebody fresh. Notably, The New York Times ran an article over the weekend noting that Biden is, in fact, rather advanced in age. The poll also reflects a "country gripped by a pervasive sense of pessimism" as 75 percent of Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction. The last time that number was as low was during the 2008 financial crisis. The New York Time's reports that sense of national dread "spans every corner of the country, every age range and racial group, cities, suburbs and rural areas, as well as both political parties." The biggest number of those opposed to Biden's running in 2024 was with the young demographic. In numbers that also mirror a previous Quinnipiac poll, 94 percent of people under 30 want a different Democratic nominee. 41 percent of Hispanic voters "strongly disapprove" of the president's job, reflecting a Democratic concern that they are losing support from Hispanic Americans. 0 percent of those polled said that Covid was the most important concern in America. 37 percent of those polled said they intend to vote in the Democratic primary and 39 percent said they'll vote Republican. 20 percent of those polled said jobs and the economy were their biggest concern. 15 percent said cost of living and inflation. 5 percent said abortion. Of those who polled who identify as working class between the ages of 18 and 64, 94 percent said the economy was either in poor or fair condition. 26 percent of polled Democrats did say that Biden should be the nominee for president in 2024. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/fox-news-power-rankings-gop-expected-take-control-house Fox News Power Rankings: GOP expected to take control of House Republicans are forecast to take control of the House this November with at least seven seats to spare, leaving Democrats in need of a dramatic turnaround to hold on to power. This edition of the Fox News Power Rankings also unveils the U.S. House model for the first time and sees gubernatorial candidate Josh Shapiro, a Democrat, carving out a slight edge in Pennsylvania. With redistricting completed and the bulk of the primaries behind us, the Power Rankings model now reveals a clear advantage for the GOP in the House. With 218 seats required to take control, the GOP is forecast to take 225 seats to the Democrats’ 180 seats. Those figures include only the races in which one party has an advantage. The actual size of a GOP majority will depend on how many highly competitive "toss up" races each party wins, but the Republicans are expected to gain at least a seven-seat majority (225 seats) and as much as a 37-seat majority (255 seats) in their "best case" scenario. The range of scenarios for the Democrats leaves the party with as much as a 38-seat deficit (180 seats), or just eight shy of a majority (210 seats). That is significant. In other words, even if Democrats win all 30 races currently marked as toss-ups, the party still does not have enough support to retain control of the House. Eagle-eyed Power Rankings readers would know that these ratings are just estimates, and that even races assigned to a party (particularly those in the "Lean" columns) are still very competitive. Nonetheless, the current forecast looks very cloudy for congressional Democrats. Question… do you enjoy shopping with integrity? Well then do I have a business for you!

Elon Musk is back in the news ladies and gentleman… https://thepostmillennial.com/elon-musk-uses-memes-to-signal-he-planned-to-take-twitter-to-court-all-along/?utm_campaign=64487 Elon Musk uses memes to signal he planned to take Twitter to court all along Elon Musk's Twitter buy is about to hit the court as the social media giant is suing him in order to force the sale the Space X CEO has reportedly backed away from. But Musk, who only backed away from the sale because he couldn't get an accurate count from Twitter as to how many of their users were bots, will likely now gain access to that data in court. Musk shared a meme to that effect on, where else, Twitter. "They said I couldn't buy Twitter," the first panel reads. "Then they wouldn't disclose bot into. Now they want to force me to buy Twitter in court. Now they have to disclose bot info in court." The text is accompanied by images of Elon laughing. The saga of the Musk Twitter buy has bene ongoing since April, with Musk bought a 9.2 percent stake in the company, becoming one of the company's top shareholders. He later went on to offer $44 billion for the enterprise, and the board of directors of Twitter approved that in June. Staff at Twitter, however, were less that pleased with the prospect of working for the outspoken entrepreneur. Musk addressed them directly prior to the board's approval of the sale. But Musk became concerned that perhaps he had overvalued the company and that a large percentage of Twitter users were bots. Twitter claims that bots are 5 percent of the total users, but Musk has been interested in seeing data to "make an independent assessment of the prevalence of fake or spam accounts on Twitter's platform." Musk began looking for this information in May, and then sought to terminate the deal in July. Twitter has said they would bring suit to force the sale. They hired firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz. Musk appears to believe that this suit will bring the information he wanted all along, in the first place.

In other words, even if Democrats win all 30 races currently marked as toss-ups, the party still does not have enough support to retain control of the House. Eagle-eyed Power Rankings readers would know that these ratings are just estimates, and that even races assigned to a party (particularly those in the "Lean" columns) are still very competitive. Nonetheless, the current forecast looks very cloudy for congressional Democrats. Question… do you enjoy shopping with integrity? Well then do I have a business for you!

Elon Musk is back in the news ladies and gentleman… https://thepostmillennial.com/elon-musk-uses-memes-to-signal-he-planned-to-take-twitter-to-court-all-along/?utm_campaign=64487 Elon Musk uses memes to signal he planned to take Twitter to court all along Elon Musk's Twitter buy is about to hit the court as the social media giant is suing him in order to force the sale the Space X CEO has reportedly backed away from. But Musk, who only backed away from the sale because he couldn't get an accurate count from Twitter as to how many of their users were bots, will likely now gain access to that data in court. Musk shared a meme to that effect on, where else, Twitter. "They said I couldn't buy Twitter," the first panel reads. "Then they wouldn't disclose bot into. Now they want to force me to buy Twitter in court. Now they have to disclose bot info in court." The text is accompanied by images of Elon laughing. The saga of the Musk Twitter buy has bene ongoing since April, with Musk bought a 9.2 percent stake in the company, becoming one of the company's top shareholders. He later went on to offer $44 billion for the enterprise, and the board of directors of Twitter approved that in June. Staff at Twitter, however, were less that pleased with the prospect of working for the outspoken entrepreneur. Musk addressed them directly prior to the board's approval of the sale. But Musk became concerned that perhaps he had overvalued the company and that a large percentage of Twitter users were bots. Twitter claims that bots are 5 percent of the total users, but Musk has been interested in seeing data to "make an independent assessment of the prevalence of fake or spam accounts on Twitter's platform." Musk began looking for this information in May, and then sought to terminate the deal in July. Twitter has said they would bring suit to force the sale. They hired firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz. Musk appears to believe that this suit will bring the information he wanted all along, in the first place.

This episode's guest is Morgan C. Williams, Jr., Assistant Professor of Economics at Barnard College, Columbia University Morgan C. Williams, Jr. discusses the first empirical estimate of the race-specific effects of larger police forces in the United States. Each additional police officer abates approximately 0.1 homicides. In per capita terms, effects are twice as large for Black versus white victims. At the same time, larger police forces make more arrests for low-level “quality-of-life” offenses, with effects that imply a disproportionate burden for Black Americans. Notably, cities with large Black populations do not share equally in the benefits of investments in police manpower. Our results provide novel empirical support for the popular narrative that Black communities are simultaneously over and under-policed. Interview by Dartmouth student Shawdi Mehrvarzan '22.

In this episode we discuss the relevance of empire criticism for understanding Paul's letter to the Ephesians with Dr. Justin Winzenburg, who is Associate Professor of New Testament and Greek, and the Director of the Honors Program at Crown College (St. Bonafacious, Minnesota). Dr. Winzenburg is also the author of the forthcoming volume that we discuss in this episode, Ephesians and Empire (Mohr Siebeck). In our conversation, Dr. Winzenburg situates his study within the context of broader empire criticism and the more specific application of that broader field to the writings of Paul. Notably, Ephesians is one of the least explored letters from the Pauline corpus for this broader conversation, and we discuss some of the reasons regarding why this is the case. But aside from merely addressing a neglected letter, Dr. Winzenburg explains how his thesis also expands the analysis of empire criticism through his fascinating application of Speech Act Theory, which creates exciting new avenues of investigation. Team members on the episode from The Two Cities include: Dr. John Anthony Dunne and Rev. Daniel Parham.

Recorded by Robert Miles: http://robertskmiles.com More information about the newsletter here: https://rohinshah.com/alignment-newsletter/ YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfGGFXwKpr-TJ5HfxEFaFCg   Sorry for the long hiatus! I was really busy over the past few months and just didn't find time to write this newsletter. (Realistically, I was also a bit tired of writing it and so lacked motivation.) I'm intending to go back to writing it now, though I don't think I can realistically commit to publishing weekly; we'll see how often I end up publishing. For now, have a list of all the things I should have advertised to you whose deadlines haven't already passed.   NEWS Survey on AI alignment resources (Anonymous) (summarized by Rohin): This survey is being run by an outside collaborator in partnership with the Centre for Effective Altruism (CEA). They ask that you fill it out to help field builders find out which resources you have found most useful for learning about and/or keeping track of the AI alignment field. Results will help inform which resources to promote in the future, and what type of resources we should make more of. Announcing the Inverse Scaling Prize ($250k Prize Pool) (Ethan Perez et al) (summarized by Rohin): This prize with a $250k prize pool asks participants to find new examples of tasks where pretrained language models exhibit inverse scaling: that is, models get worse at the task as they are scaled up. Notably, you do not need to know how to program to participate: a submission consists solely of a dataset giving at least 300 examples of the task. Inverse scaling is particularly relevant to AI alignment, for two main reasons. First, it directly helps understand how the language modeling objective ("predict the next word") is outer misaligned, as we are finding tasks where models that do better according to the language modeling objective do worse on the task of interest. Second, the experience from examining inverse scaling tasks could lead to general observations about how best to detect misalignment. $500 bounty for alignment contest ideas (Akash) (summarized by Rohin): The authors are offering a $500 bounty for producing a frame of the alignment problem that is accessible to smart high schoolers/college students and people without ML backgrounds. (See the post for details; this summary doesn't capture everything well.) Job ad: Bowman Group Open Research Positions (Sam Bowman) (summarized by Rohin): Sam Bowman is looking for people to join a research center at NYU that'll focus on empirical alignment work, primarily on large language models. There are a variety of roles to apply for (depending primarily on how much research experience you already have). Job ad: Postdoc at the Algorithmic Alignment Group (summarized by Rohin): This position at Dylan Hadfield-Menell's lab will lead the design and implementation of a large-scale Cooperative AI contest to take place next year, alongside collaborators at DeepMind and the Cooperative AI Foundation. Job ad: AI Alignment postdoc (summarized by Rohin): David Krueger is hiring for a postdoc in AI alignment (and is also hiring for another role in deep learning). The application deadline is August 2. Job ad: OpenAI Trust & Safety Operations Contractor (summarized by Rohin): In this remote contractor role, you would evaluate submissions to OpenAI's App Review process to ensure they comply with OpenAI's policies. Apply here by July 13, 5pm Pacific Time. Job ad: Director of CSER (summarized by Rohin): Application deadline is July 31. Quoting the job ad: "The Director will be expected to provide visionary leadership for the Centre, to maintain and enhance its reputation for cutting-edge research, to develop and oversee fundraising and new project and programme design, to ensure the proper functioning of its operations and administration, and to lead its endeavours to secure longevity for the Centre within the University." Job ads: Redwood Research (summarized by Rohin): Redwood Research works directly on AI alignment research, and hosts and operates Constellation, a shared office space for longtermist organizations including ARC, MIRI, and Open Philanthropy. They are hiring for a number of operations and technical roles. Job ads: Roles at the Fund for Alignment Research (summarized by Rohin): The Fund for Alignment Research (FAR) is a new organization that helps AI safety researchers, primarily in academia, pursue high-impact research by hiring contractors. It is currently hiring for Operation Manager, Research Engineer, and Communication Specialist roles. Job ads: Encultured AI (summarized by Rohin): Encultured AI is a new for-profit company with a public benefit mission: to develop technologies promoting the long-term survival and flourishing of humanity and other sentient life. They are hiring for a Machine Learning Engineer and an Immersive Interface Engineer role. Job ads: Fathom Radiant (summarized by Rohin): Fathom Radiant is a public benefit corporation that aims to build a new type of computer which they hope to use to support AI alignment efforts. They have several open roles, including (but not limited to) Scientists / Engineers, Builders and Software Engineer, Lab.
