    Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman went on a tour of Mideast capitals late last month, renewing his contacts with the leaders of Egypt, Jordan and Turkey. MBS, as he is known, was a favorite of the Trump administration, but was subsequently shunned by the Biden team – which frequently waves the flag of human rights as a pillar of the Administration's foreign policy – so-long as it conforms with Washington's strategic interests. Hence, in light of global shifts which altered strategic considerations, US President Joe Biden is forcing to bring MBS back in from the cold ahead of a regional Arab summit he will attend hosted by the House of Saud later this month. Panel: - Jonathan Hessen, Host. - Amir Oren, Editor at Large, Host of Watchmen Talk and Powers in Play. - Dr. Joshua Krasna, Lecturer on intelligence and Mideast security at NYU and Research Fellow at Moshe Dayan center at Tel Aviv University. - Prof. Efraim Inbar; President of the Jerusalem Institute for Strategy and Security.

    Julia and I discuss her latest novel, Vigil Harbor, a story of the near future in which many of our current crises are amplified in terrifying yet recognizable ways. The Covid pandemic and its aftereffects are still felt, coastal communities are being swept into the sea, a violent wave of xenophobia and anti-immigrant anti-refugee sentiment stokes fire everywhere—such is the world a little more than a decade from now in Julia's imaginings. Like so many of Julia's works of fiction, it is the voices of the characters that populate this world that make the novel sing. There's the architect, Austin Kepner, who obsesses over building houses that are made to withstand the furies of an angry planet's weather. Margo, the sardonic, brainy teacher. Brecht, home from NYU after escaping a domestic terrorist attack, and so many other unique and compelling voices. Life in the small coastal town of Vigil Harbor is roiled by two unexpected visitors, one a stranger, and the other well-known to certain inhabitants. The result is a novel of many pleasures that unsettles even as it delights.  Julia Recommends: Iris Murdoch, The Sea, The Sea Jim Harrison, Legends of the Fall Elliott Ackerman, 2034: A Novel of the Next War Stewart O'Nan, Ocean State Chris Holmes is Chair of Literatures in English and Associate Professor at Ithaca College.

There was a pair of his drugstore eyeglasses. He seemed to have vanished and that was the sense I tried to depict in (the final) story (of her new book).

Dan and his team at Overtime identified that the traditional sports media players were (and still are) heavily invested in the old infrastructure like cable deals. That left an opportunity to create an agile sports media brand that would cater to the younger generation utilizing new technology such as social platforms. What started as an app turned into a community and has now morphed into creating and managing sports leagues. They currently operate two leagues OTE and OT7, one basketball and football.

    Jay Van Bavel is an Associate Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at New York University. Prior to joining NYU, Jay completed his PhD at the University of Toronto and a post-doctoral fellowship at the Ohio State University. From neurons to social networks, Jay's research examines how collective concerns of identities, moral values, and political beliefs shape the mind, brain, and behavior. His work addresses issues of group identity, social motivation, cooperation, moral judgment, decision making, and social media. He's a researcher at his core who's highly curious, looking up the newest and best ways to gather great science and great data and great information. He's published over 100 academic publications and co-authors a mentoring column. His work has appeared in academic papers in the US Supreme Court and the Senate. His research has been featured in a TedTalk, a TedEd, and a TedX. He's consulted with the White House, United Nations, European Union, and the World Health Organization on issues related to his research.   Jay had a number of amazing insights during our conversation. Some of them include: “We have an enormous amount of resilience, more than we would have expected” (11:20). “90% of success is just showing up. You show up and you do your best even if it's not your best day” (12:45). “We're highly attuned to the social norms of any group we're in” (15:00). “People want to feel like the identities they have are positive and distinct from other groups” (16:45). “We want to signal to ourselves and others that we're part of valued identities” (18:15). “If people reduce their social media use by 1 hour a day, they're much happier” (20:35). “Most every human has a need for affiliation” (24:15). “We can identify with groups of people we've never even met” (25:00). “People misrepresent themselves on social media” (28:40). “People are tuned to whatever type of value generates engagement on different [social media] platforms” (29:15). “The more you identify with a group, the more you want to start to embody the norms of the group” (31:55). “If you're in a group, you should be carefully thinking about what the norms are” (33:30). “You can nudge and influence other people by changing your own behavior” (33:35). “The most powerful form of identity that makes people feel fulfilled but also inclusive is what's called the dual-identity model: When you feel part of something bigger than yourself, but you are still able to sustain and feel that your other identities are valued” (36:50). “We're wired to be group-ish” (39:40). “The groups we belong to don't necessarily need to discriminate” (40:35). “One of the key predictors of cooperation is that you both benefit if it's good” (45:45). “I frame my criticisms as questions” (47:30). “Organizations who add talent but don't think about how groups will gel often times aren't any more successful” (50:45). “Even though polarization has gotten really bad, people still vastly overestimate it” (56:30). “40-50% of our political ideologies is biological” (1:04:30). “We all contain multitudes of identities” (1:10:00). “Whatever situation we're in activates an identity, and with it comes a way of seeing the world” (1:10:25).   Additionally, make sure to check out powerofus.online for more information on Jay's book, and you can also find more info on Jay at JayVanBevel.com!

You show up and you do your best even if it's not your best day” (12:45). “We're highly attuned to the social norms of any group we're in” (15:00). “People want to feel like the identities they have are positive and distinct from other groups” (16:45). “We want to signal to ourselves and others that we're part of valued identities” (18:15). “If people reduce their social media use by 1 hour a day, they're much happier” (20:35). “Most every human has a need for affiliation” (24:15). “We can identify with groups of people we've never even met” (25:00). “People misrepresent themselves on social media” (28:40). “People are tuned to whatever type of value generates engagement on different [social media] platforms” (29:15). “The more you identify with a group, the more you want to start to embody the norms of the group” (31:55). “If you're in a group, you should be carefully thinking about what the norms are” (33:30). “You can nudge and influence other people by changing your own behavior” (33:35). “The most powerful form of identity that makes people feel fulfilled but also inclusive is what's called the dual-identity model: When you feel part of something bigger than yourself, but you are still able to sustain and feel that your other identities are valued” (36:50). “We're wired to be group-ish” (39:40). “The groups we belong to don't necessarily need to discriminate” (40:35). “One of the key predictors of cooperation is that you both benefit if it's good” (45:45). “I frame my criticisms as questions” (47:30). “Organizations who add talent but don't think about how groups will gel often times aren't any more successful” (50:45). “Even though polarization has gotten really bad, people still vastly overestimate it” (56:30). “40-50% of our political ideologies is biological” (1:04:30). “We all contain multitudes of identities” (1:10:00). “Whatever situation we're in activates an identity, and with it comes a way of seeing the world” (1:10:25).

    An American pregnant woman who was on holiday in Malta this month couldn't get an induced medical miscarriage when she needed it because of the country's strict abortion laws. Andrea Prudente ended up going to Mallorca to get treatment, where she's recovering in a hotel. She joined Emma. Zara Aleena, 35, was assaulted as she walked home in East London in the early hours of Sunday. The Met Police believe she was the victim of an "opportunist stranger attack". She died later in hospital. Emma speaks to Andrea Simon, Director of End Violence Against Women Coaltion and Zoe Billingham, former Her Majesty's Inspector of Constabulary about women's safety. Women in science are less likely to have their contributions recognised than their male counterparts - for example on a scientific paper or named on a patent - according to new analysis. A team of economists in the US found that women often have to work twice as hard as men to earn credit. But what's it like for women in science here in the UK? Monica Grady, CBE is a Professor at the Open University. She joins Emma as does co-author of the US study, Professor Julia Lane from the Wagner School of Public Policy at NYU. Have you ever noticed the queue for the women's toilets is much longer than the queue for the men's? Two Bristol university graduates have tried to resolve this issue, by inventing female urinals. They joined Emma to explain how it works. We have an update on Roe v Wade being overturned with the attorney Rebecca Kiessling and Jessica Arons from the American Civil Liberties Union.

    How Studies of Magic Mushrooms are Proving Consciousness

    Ask A Death Doula

    Big Ideas:   1.What Psilocybin is [00:27] – Psilocybin is the main psychedelic compound found in “magic mushrooms.” The talk of using this psychedelic at the end of life has been a hot topic and is being studied intensively. It is being looked at as having potentially effective medicinal/therapeutic properties in the treatment of fear, anxiety, and depression for those at the end of life. It is a naturally occurring compound found in specific species of mushrooms. It has been used for thousands of years all around the world as part of spiritual rituals and cultural ceremonies. In the 50's and 60's, Psilocybin started to be studied for its therapeutic properties in the use of treating a plethora of ailments and conditions. Everything from addiction, anxiety, depression, and other various forms of mental illness were treated in clinical studies with thousands of patients. In the 1970's this research was abruptly ended. It has recently started up again with a renewed focal point on studying the use of this compound in those at the end of life.   2.The “Trip Treatment” [3:20] – In 2015, an article in the New Yorker was titled “The Trip Treatment.” It was all about the use and studies of Psilocybin and the promising results it has shown in treating those who had extreme fear, anxiety, and depression in their end-of-life journeys. Not only did they have great results overcoming these particular issues, but the use of Psilocybin led to incredible breakthroughs and a sort of spiritual understanding/awakening amongst those treated with it. There is now a growing movement for using Psilocybin for this purpose in the End-of-Life space. There is much debate over this issue, but there are new studies currently being conducted at NYU, UCLA, and John Hopkin's University amongst other notable and well-renowned research institutions.   3.The Similarities Between the Spiritual Awakening at End of Life and Psilocybin Use [6:30] – Many of the things relating to the spiritual breakthroughs patients have in these various studies are remarkably similar to some of the things I have been sharing for years. As a former hospice and oncology nurse, I have worked at the bedside of over one thousand end of life patients over the last twenty years. My end of life patients say the same exact thing as those who have been treated with Psilocybin. I want to share that this experience is naturally occurring in people as they near their end of life. As their physical body is diminishing, their spiritual body is growing. There's a time in their journey where they have one foot in this world and one foot in the next. In my opinion, many people go back and forth before they fully leave this world. I say this because I have had so many patients who suddenly wake up with a bunch of new information and a renewed and profound perspective on life. They speak of all being connected to one unconditional loving energy and this parallels what has been documented in these Psilocybin studies.   4.You Don't Have to Wait Until the End of Life to Have Your Own Breakthrough [9:05] – The whole goal of life is the journey of evolving to find your spiritual self. To understand yourself and to be able to live authentically and true to who you really are. To overcome the obstacles and the suffering we deal with in our physical world. It is to get beyond your ego and to tap into what is in your heart and let it guide you. We all have two internal directional instruments we can choose to follow. One is our analytical mind that is shaped by our experiences, prejudices, and imprinting of other people's views. Following this directional path leads to us living a fear-based existence. By contrast, our heart guidance system will lead us to our unique truth. If we understood this human journey for what it really is and that we are all connected to one unconditional loving energy with no judgment – that life is all about learning and growing – we would have so much more compassion for one another and shift the entire world into a better place for everyone.   1. “Death is having a rebirth and it is bringing back the sacredness of end of life and the sacredness of life. We have got to understand what this journey is about and how we can make it the best for everybody in it.” – Suzanne B. O'Brien RN   2. “Take the time to create a loving space in your heart and ask yourself, ‘Where does my heart want me to be of service?' Find that internal place where you can love others, yourself, and everything and everyone on this incredible planet.” – Suzanne B.

    The partiality we display, insofar as we form and sustain personal attachments, is not normatively fundamental. It is a byproduct of the deference and responsiveness that are essential to our engagement with the world. We cannot form and sustain valuable personal relationships without seeing ourselves as answerable to the other participants in those relationships. And we cannot develop and sustain valuable projects without responding to the constraints imposed on our activities by the nature and requirements of those projects themselves. More generally, we cannot engage with the world without meeting it on its terms, and we cannot meet the world on its terms without responding differentially – or displaying partiality – with respect to the objects of our engagement. Partiality is thus a byproduct of engagement. We cannot engage with the world at all without exhibiting forms of partiality. Samuel Scheffler is University Professor in the Department of Philosophy at NYU. He works primarily in the areas of moral and political philosophy and the theory of value. His writings have addressed central questions in ethical theory, and he has also written on topics as diverse as equality, nationalism and cosmopolitanism, toleration, terrorism, immigration, tradition, death, and the future of humanity. Scheffler received his A.B. from Harvard and his Ph.D. from Princeton. From 1977-2008 he taught at the University of California, Berkeley. He is the author of six books: The Rejection of Consequentialism, Human Morality, Boundaries and Allegiances, Equality and Tradition, Death and the Afterlife (Niko Kolodny ed.), and Why Worry about Future Generations? He has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the U.S. National Endowment for the Humanities, and he has been a Visiting Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. His first book was awarded the Matchette Prize of the American Philosophical Association. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a member of the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters, and a foreign member of the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters. He is currently at work on a book (tentatively) titled The Lives We Lead: Personal Attachment and the Passage of Time. This podcast is an audio recording of Dr Scheffler's talk - "Partiality, Deference, and Engagement" - at the Aristotelian Society on 20th June 2022.

    On today's episode, McKay explores the concept of happiness, including where to find it, and how to hold on to it. To intoduce this rather expansive topic, he opens up the show by reviewing Elizabeth Smart's story - her brutal experience getting kidnapped and raped, and her journey toward happiness. McKay says that, while it's true that happiness is partially dependent upon circumstance, we can also attribute a large portion of our happiness to dedication, the people who raised us, and those with whom we surround ourselves. He goes on to introduce more conditions for happiness, noting that, when we have admirable intentions and goals in our lives, for example, we find more daily satisfaction. Even the love we share and receive plays a large role in how content we are. McKay draws this highly positive podcast episode to a close by reminding the audience to find joy in the little things, and by offering this invaluable advice: “Stay poised in tough situations—good will prevail. Exercise. Serve. Have Faith. Be humble and watch…. You will be happy.” The Finer Details of This Episode: Elizabeth Smart's journey Happiness dependent on circumstances Set happiness Taylor Swift's NYU speech The value of intention Love and happiness Darren's happy landing Focusing on the little things Quotes: "As the days passed, she started to realize that this may be her new way of life.” “He has taken 9 months of your life that you will never get back, but the best punishment you could ever give him is to be happy.” “Happiness is a choice.” “Married people report a slightly higher happiness level than single people. In research, 25 percent of married people and 21 percent of single people say they are very happy. In short, circumstances such as wealth or marital status only impact our happiness in small ways.” “We get more from our parents than eye color and facial features. We may get a large set of our happiness from them or from others. How we grew up or who we have interacted with throughout our life, does dictate our level of happiness.” “People with aspirations have higher energy levels, stronger immune systems, stronger mental health and feelings of self-confidence and self-esteem.” “I agree with the researchers. I believe happy people see the best, even in the toughest situations. They are empowered with poise and optimism.” “Remember, that only 10 percent of happiness depends on circumstances. Fifty percent is heritable. So be a person who sees, talks about and shares the good in life. You can pass on the habit of happiness to others and be a blessing to them.” “Focusing on the small things in life that bring you joy.” Links: https://www.mckaychristensen.org/ (Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen)

    Since the 1990s, the New Qing History school has loomed large in the study of the Qing dynasty. It has greatly informed not only the study of the Qing but study of other dynasties as well. Yet what exactly is New Qing History? What is "new" about it? How did it come into being? How was it received in China and the West? To answer these questions, we talked to Professor Joanna Waley-Cohen of NYU, one of the leading scholars of the Qing dynasty. Contributors Joanna Waley-Cohen Professor Joanna Waley-Cohen is the Provost for NYU Shanghai and Julius Silver Professor of History at New York University. Her research interests include early modern Chinese history, especially the Qing dynasty; China and the West; and Chinese imperial culture, particularly in the Qianlong era; warfare in China and Inner Asia; and Chinese culinary history, and she has authored several books and articles on these topics. In addition, Professor Waley-Cohen has received many honors, including archival and postdoctoral fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies, Goddard and Presidential Fellowships from NYU, and an Olin Fellowship in Military and Strategic History from Yale.  Yiming Ha Yiming Ha is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of History at the University of California, Los Angeles. His current research is on military mobilization and state-building in China between the thirteenth and seventeenth centuries, focusing on how military institutions changed over time, how the state responded to these changes, the disconnect between the center and localities, and the broader implications that the military had on the state. His project highlights in particular the role of the Mongol Yuan in introducing an alternative form of military mobilization that radically transformed the Chinese state. He is also interested in military history, nomadic history, comparative Eurasian state-building, and the history of maritime interactions in early modern East Asia. He received his BA from UCLA and his MPhil from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

She explains how she answered the burning question, “How do I make this a book and not just a pile of words?” Her secrets include A 500-mile ride on a tandem bike, a morning routine, a great agent and editor, the willingness to turn in her “hottest garbage,” and a three-word mantra that will help jumpstart every creative process. Rachel Feltman’s first paying gig was organizing a bookshelf full of textbooks on vulvar disease at the age of seven, and she never looked back. She’s the Executive Editor of Popular Science and hosts PopSci’s podcast The Weirdest Thing I Learned This Week. In 2014, Feltman founded the Washington Post’s Speaking of Science blog, known for headlines such as “You probably have herpes, but that’s really okay,” and “Uranus might be full of surprises.” Feltman studied environmental science at Simon’s Rock and has a master’s in science reporting from NYU. She’s a musician, an actress, and the stepmom of a very spry 14-year-old cat.Rachel’s website https://www.boldtypebooks.com/titles/rachel-feltman/been-there-done-that/9781668605042/ This is a public episode.
