The Capitol Insurrection's Impact on American Democracy In a recent article for The Atlantic, “Trump's Next Coup Has Already Begun,” staff writer Barton Gellman looks at the events leading to Jan 6., Republican efforts to subvert democracy, and how this could impact upcoming elections.  Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman Shares Her Story of Surviving the Insurrection Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman joins us to discuss her experience during the insurrection at the Capitol last year as well as the upcoming public hearings. A Historian Reflects on How to Teach the Insurrection Professor Hasan Jeffries of The Ohio State University has focused his research on the long history of Black struggle, and his work reminds us that the violence we saw at the Capitol one year ago is not an anomaly—in fact political violence has long been a feature of how white supremacy has asserted itself in this country.   Did the Lack of Civics in American Education Help Cause the Insurrection? Will Bunch, national opinion columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer and  Coshandra Dillard, a senior writer for Learning for Justice, join us to discuss how civics could play a role in preventing events like this in future.  How the Big Lie Led to the Insurrection The core motivation behind the violence we saw a year ago on January 6, is a belief in The Big Lie– the self-serving falsehood perpetrated by former President Trump himself that the 2020 election was stolen.

The congressional lawmaker, whose district represents parts of South Philadelphia and Delaware County, was accompanied by another member of her staff, but the two drove separately, according to office spokesperson Lauren Cox.

And after completely trashing the state's cash bond system in January of this year, one Illinois state senator is probably regretting her vote in favor of the action. From the Forest Park Review, “Passage of the Pretrial Fairness Act makes Illinois the first state in the nation to completely abolish cash bail — i.e. the requirement that arrestees post a monetary bond as a way of insuring that they return for their trial.” But perhaps some system of keeping bad guys and gals in jail might be a good thing. State Senator Kimberly Lightford, with her husband, was carjacked on December 21, 2021. Three armed assailants fired multiple shots during the event. Though no one was hurt, the carjackers made off with her Mercedes Benz.

Alabama could have avoided this situation if it had passed constitutional carry and joined the 21 other states that allow eligible, law-abiding adults to carry concealed without having to first apply for government permission or pay fees. Unfortunately, Alabama sheriffs have been vocal opponents of constitutional carry, preferring to sell your rights back to you and fund their departments with the revenue. There is no indication that any of them might now admit that the lack of constitutional carry has allowed a computer problem to leave law-abiding citizens defenseless because they can't obtain the permit to exercise a constitutional right.

In today's second hour, Dom leads off the show by discussing a story in the Philadelphia Inquirer that argues that we, as a society, should stop tipping and instead implement a standard fee added into the check. Giordano takes umbrage with this suggestion, and explains why the suggestion is rife with socialistic ideology. Then, Giordano discusses the story of a priest who denied a medical exemption based on the person's usage of Tylenol, arguing that back in 1955, stem cells were used in testing for the medication. Then, Ray Didinger checks in for his weekly post-Eagles rundown, this week discussing the Eagles close victory over the Washington Football Team. First, Giordano and Didinger discuss a situation after yesterday's game, with Jalen Hurts closely skirting an injury after a malfunction at Fed Ex Field caused a wave of fans to fall from the stands onto the field. Giordano asks Didinger if he's ever been to the stadium, and blames Dan Snyder for putting fans in such a dangerous situation. Then, Didinger offers his thoughts on the stadium, noting that it's not a very old stadium and seems to be a bad luck charm for the team. Then, Giordano and Didinger discuss the on-field performance of the Eagles in the close win against the Football Team, and Didinger offers his thoughts on head coach Nick Sirianni.

Dr. Oz talks about how The Philadelphia Inquirer has vowed to discontinue referring to him as “Dr. Oz”—the newspaper claims it gives the nationally recognizable TV personality an unfair advantage over other, less-notable candidates from Pennsylvania. Similarly, social media has begun to clamp down on his posts in an attempt to “even the playing field.” During his conversation with Dom, Dr. Oz also addresses several Biden Administration short-comings—namely their need to make free COVID-19 testing more widely available to Americans, and Pennsylvanians specifically.

The FDA has permanently lifted a restriction on access to abortion pills. This will allow patients to receive the medication by mail instead of requiring them to schedule an in-person appointment with specially certified health care providers. The decision will not change state laws that ban the pills, but it's one piece of positive news in an otherwise dark future for abortion rights.  President Biden indicates that the Build Back Better bill will not be passed before the Christmas break, despite Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer's assurances that it would. The Senate had no problem, however, of passing a $768 billion, one-year defense spending bill on a vote of 88-11. So, we won't get critical climate action, paid family leave, universal preschool, or hearing aid coverage, but we will get more, shiny nuclear weapons this holiday season.  Did  1,400 Union workers at Kellogg's may have an agreement that would end their 10-week strike. But don't celebrate yet. While negotiators said they have an agreement, workers still need to vote on the agreement. Workers voted down the last tentative agreement after workers refused a two-tiered workforce that would have sold out newer workers.  Schools in Pennsylvania and several other states have increased police presence around schools today in response to national TikTok trend to threaten school shootings and bombings. Generally, officials are saying the threats are not credible, but are taking no chances.  bell hooks, one of the most important black feminist writers, scholars, and activists has died at the age of 69. She began writing her ground-breaking book, Ain't I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism, when she was a 19-year-old undergraduate. Her long collaboration with Cornell West provided some of the most important dialogic books for a generation of public intellectuals and activists.  Democracy in Pennsylvania is not ok.  Pennsylvania House Democrats stood up to the GOP's attacks on voting rights and the democratic institutions protecting those rights this week.  Progressives, led by Emily Kinkead and Chris Rabb, held a press conference Wednesday morning bringing attention to the GOP's efforts to undermine democracy and weaponizing constitutional amendments aimed at those institutions while leadership used the House Floor to air their concerns. Republicans are pushing constitutional amendments that would immediately dissolve and gerrymander Pennsylvania's supreme court, change the court's 10 year term limits to 2 years, change the Secretary of State's appointed position to an elected position, allow fraudits and give the legislature more control in overseeing elections.  The Legislative Reapportionment Committee released their preliminary house and senate maps yesterday and Republicans are upset at the House maps calling them a Democratic Gerrymander. Water is wet and the New York Times recently reported that Scott Perry and other friends from the Freedom Caucus attended key meetings with Trump to overturn the 2020 election.  Philadelphia Developer Ori Feibush uses scab labor and someone died at his worksite. The worker, Siarhei Marhunou, was employed by a company called DBCI LLC. DBCI had been subcontracted to work on the project by the Huntingdon Valley-based construction company Hammers Contractors. Hammers had, in turn, been contracted by the Fitler Construction Group, which was managing construction for OCF, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Three more Proud Boys from Philly were arrested Friday and charged in connection with the January 6 insurrection. Isaiah Giddens, Brian Healion, and Freedom Vy decided taking pictures of themselves flashing the white supremacist “OK” sign inside Senator Jeff Ferkley's offices was a good idea at the time.

In today's second hour Dom Giordano leads off the hour by speaking with former Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, who wrote an editorial in the Philadelphia Inquirer speaking out against the policies by Larry Krasner that have led the city of Philadelphia down a horrible path. Nutter tells of Krasner's seeming prioritization of his own political future over the safety of Philadelphians, and explains to Giordano why he labeled Krasner a ‘great white hope'. Nutter lays out what he was able to do as Mayor to create a safe environment for Philadelphians, telling of the policies that he enacted that helped bring business and tourism into the city. Then, Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a professor at Stanford University, rejoins the Dom Giordano Program to help dissect and break down the Omicron variant. First, Dr. Jay and Giordano discuss the messaging around the virus, with Dr. Jay stressing the importance of not driving panic and fear. Dr. Jay also gives his thoughts on herd immunity, and tells whether he believes the CDC will recognize natural immunity as a contributor to finding a solution for the virus.

Synopsis During his 26 seasons with the Philadelphia Orchestra, the charismatic conductor Leopold Stokowski often programmed new music by contemporary composers. On today's date in 1937, for example, Stokowski and the Philadelphians performed works by two American composers.  First up was some ballet music by Robert McBride, which The Philadelphia Inquirer reviewer found (quote) “of indifferent interest.” The same critic, however, was enthusiastic about the second work, the premiere performance of the Second Symphony of William Grant Still, subtitled “Song of a New Race.” “[It] was of absorbing interest, unmistakably racial in thematic material and rhythms, and triumphantly articulate in expression of moods, ranging from the exuberance of jazz to brooding wistfulness.” William Grant Still himself contrasted his Second Symphony with his First, which was subtitled an “Afro-American Symphony.”  “[If my Symphony No. 1] represented the Negro of days not far removed from the Civil War," his Symphony No. 2, said Still, represented "the American colored man of today, in so many instances a totally new individual.”One striking feature of Still's Second is the expansive, lyrical writing for strings, perhaps a nod to the Philadelphia's famously silky string sound; another is the brass choir call and response gestures, reminiscent of African-American church music traditions.

ABOUT MIKE SIELSKI AND I AM KOBEHow did Kobe Bryant craft the passion, the determination, and the strength to become a legend? This remarkable series reveals intimate, never-before-heard tapes of Kobe as a teenager, exploring his thoughts, his dreams, and his goals. Philadelphia journalist Mike Sielski tells the story of Kobe Bryant's early years, weaving together these tapes and speaking with Kobe's high school coaches, his friends, his family, and the figures who knew him in his youth, to paint an enthralling documentary portrait of the making of an icon. Before he was an outsized global basketball celebrity for the Los Angeles Lakers, a 5-time NBA champion, an 18-time All-Star, an Academy Award-winning filmmaker, a children's-book author, a husband, a father, and sometimes a lightning rod for controversy, Kobe Bryant was a kid from Philadelphia. ABOUT MIKE SIELSKI Mike Sielski is a sports journalist and author. Born in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and raised just outside Philadelphia, Mike holds degrees from La Salle University of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. He has been a sports columnist at the Philadelphia Inquirer since 2013 and was named the top sports columnist in America by the Sports Editors of the Associated Press. He is the author of The Rise: Kobe Bryant and the Pursuit of Immortality, Fading Echoes: A True Story of Rivalry and Brotherhood from the Football Field to the Fields of Honor and the co-author of How to Be Like Jackie Robinson: Life Lessons from Baseball's Greatest Hero. Here's the trailer: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/1119-i-am-kobe-88866948/ABOUT HIS BOOK THE RISE, AVAILABLE JANUARY 11TH Sunday, January 26, 2020. The relative serenity of that day was shattered as breaking news erupted over the airwaves. A tragic helicopter crash near Los Angeles, claiming the lives of nine people, would upend the worlds of sports and celebrities in the saddest, most shocking way. When word first broke, most could not believe it was true. Kobe Bryant's death sent shock waves around the globe. Sometimes we take stars and headline-makers almost for granted, thinking nothing can stop or hurt them. It took that tragedy to reveal the full breadth and depth of Kobe Bryant's influence on our culture, both inside and outside the world of sports. In the days following, award-winning writer Mike Sielski was moved to learn more about the man and legend, who was clearly more than just a basketball star. The result is the book, THE RISE: Kobe Bryant and the Pursuit of Immortality (St. Martin's Press; On Sale January 11, 2022; $29.99), a book that will welcome readers into the growth and maturity of a young man who became as unique a star away from the limelight as he was in it.For Mike Sielski, the book became a mission: "I tried to track down as many people who were close to him during those years as I could, and I spent weeks going through newspaper archives and first-hand source materials (video of old games, coaches' documents, etc.). I interviewed friends of his who had never been interviewed before, people who hadn't spoken about him in years. I worked closely with Gregg Downer and a confidant of Kobe's, Jeremy Treatman, who had tried to collaborate on a book with Kobe in the late 1990s. As it turned out, Jeremy still had the microcassette recordings and some transcripts of those interviews, and he gave them to me. They have informed my writing and reporting and made the narrative more detailed, more honest, and richer." The story begins on the asphalt basketball courts of Philadelphia in the 1960s, where Kobe's father, Joe "Jellybean" Bryant went from playground star to college and NBA player, before finishing his professional career in Italy. Mike Sielski shows how Joe's young son, Kobe, growing up in Europe, was shaped into an uncommon young man as he became immersed in culture, geography, and the European way of life. When the family arrived back in Philadelphia, the young son was like a fish out of water. As young Kobe adjusted to an American life, his new home in Lower Merion, PA, adjusted to him. And what a breath of fresh air his personality was. Classmates and teachers were equally spellbound by his maturity and worldliness, so unlike the American teenagers they were used to seeing. Soon his enormous talent on the basketball court would be made clear as well as his unique perspective on life. A natural leader, even as an impressionable teenager, Bryant would lead his high school team - hardly a basketball power - to a meteoric rise in the state rankings. When this culminated in a 1996 state high school championship, virtually single handedly won by Kobe, his legend was cemented. But as the author shows, this amazing accomplishment would become the norm for a player whose effect on a sport was about to go global. THE RISE is more than a "basketball book." It's a deep dive into the evolution of a gangly high school kid into a global icon.

Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe said at a news conference that two of the wounded were undergoing surgery as of 5 p.m. Tuesday and that the six others were in stable condition. He identified the three students who were killed as a 16-year-old boy and two girls, ages 14 and 17. Authorities say they received a flood of 911 calls shortly before 1 p.m. about an attack at Oxford High School in Oxford Township, a community of about 22,000 people roughly 30 miles (48 kilometers) north of Detroit. McCabe said deputies took the shooting suspect — a 15-year-old sophomore — into custody without incident within five minutes of arriving at the school. He said the suspect's parents visited him where he's being held and advised their son not to talk to investigators, as is his right. He said as far as he knows, the suspect had no prior run-ins with law enforcement.” Public schools are not safe for your kids. Dr. Oz, celebrity physician, launches campaign for Senate in Pa. as a Republican https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/elections/dr-oz-celebrity-physician-launches-campaign-senate-pa-republican-n1285109?cid=sm_npd_nn_fb_ma “Dr. Mehmet Oz, a physician known to national TV audiences, announced Tuesday that he will run for Senate in Pennsylvania as a Republican, throwing more uncertainty into the closely watched primary. "We are angry at our government and at each other," Oz wrote in guest column published by The Washington Examiner. "We have not managed our crises as effectively as past generations. During the pandemic, I learned that when you mix politics and medicine, you get politics instead of solutions. That's why I am running for the U.S. Senate: to help fix the problems and to help us heal." Oz, in a video tweeted Tuesday afternoon, specified that he is seeking the Republican nomination. Pennsylvania's Senate battle became a spectacle last week when former President Donald Trump's endorsed candidate, Sean Parnell, ended his campaign after his estranged wife was granted sole legal custody of their children in a case where she alleged abuse. Parnell denied the accusations. "Pennsylvania needs a conservative who will put America first,” Oz, echoing Trump, said in his announcement video. Oz, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania's medical school and Wharton School who as recently as 2020 lived in New Jersey, registered to vote in Pennsylvania last year at the home of his in-laws, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.” La County Sheriff Holding His Ground: https://twitter.com/BillFOXLA/status/1465507928241176580/photo/1 Can a city declare itself a republic? Calif. town just did According to News Nation Now: Fed up with COVID-19 regulations and vaccine mandates, the leaders of one California city have decided to take matters into their own hands. Oroville's City Council overwhelmingly voted to declare the town a “constitutional republic” earlier this month. What that means, according to the declaration, is: “Any executive orders issued by the State of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights will not be enforced by the City of Oroville against its citizens.” What does it mean in practice? Oroville's mayor told the East Bay Times it “doesn't change anything.” “It's simply reminding people what kind of government we live under and that they do have personal choices and freedoms,” Mayor Chuck Reynolds told the Times. Proponents of the constitutional republic told reporters they were especially upset with California's requirement that children 12 and older eventually get vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to attend school. However, even after this vote, schools in Oroville will still be regulated (and largely funded) by the state. Oroville isn't the only California city to try and take a stand against the state's COVID-19 policies. Earlier in the pandemic, two towns decided to defy Gov. Gavin Newsom's shutdown orders for certain businesses, reports the Los Angeles Times. They lost some funding from the state as a result, according to the paper. The desire to secede isn't unique to California, either. The Washington Times and a USA Today columnist noticed the trend in 2020, pointing out that rural pockets of blue states are often the ones who want out. A few Virginia counties said they wanted to join their more conservative friends in West Virginia, but Adam Dean, a history professor at the University of Lynchburg, called the prospect of getting approval from both state legislatures and Congress “extremely unlikely.” Some residents in southern Oregon and far northern California have also been trying to form a 51st state of Jefferson for nearly 80 years. But as The New York Times reports, the creation of the new state would not only require California and Oregon to give the OK — Congress would have to sign off, too. So can a city decide it's fed up with its home state and go it alone? The short answer is no, at least not by merely putting the matter to a city council vote. In theory, the city's citizens could take up arms and go to war to fight for independence. But it would literally take a civil war. And since cities don't have armies, it's easy to see why even a large metropolis would be easily outmatched — not to mention Oroville, California: population 20,000.

Biden Bans Travel to South America: If you recall, Biden tweeted this when Trump banned travel from China: Well now that Biden banned travel to/from South America, it is not racist, because Jen Psaki said so: Roll clip: https://twitter.com/BreitbartNews/status/1465411536801914881 File this under New Zealand has left the reservation: LA begins enforcing strict mandate requiring proof of vax https://abcnews.go.com/Health/wireStory/la-begins-enforcing-strict-mandate-requiring-proof-vax-81457466?cid=social_fb_abcnp According to ABC news: “Enforcement began Monday in Los Angeles for one of the strictest vaccine mandates in the country, a sweeping measure that requires proof of shots for everyone entering a wide variety of businesses from restaurants to theaters and gyms to nail and hair salons. While the latest order aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus took effect Nov. 8, city officials spent the past three weeks providing business owners the information and resources business they need to comply. “Nobody wants to penalize anyone,” said Sharon Tso, the city's Chief Legislative Analyst, whose office drafted the enforcement rules. “That's why we've been prioritizing education.” A first offense will bring a warning but subsequent ones could produce fines running from $1,000 to $5,000. Inspectors with the Department of Building and Safety will enforce the mandate, and the city hopes to eventually get assistance from the LA County Department of Public Health, Tso said. She didn't immediately know if any warnings or citations were issued on Monday. Los Angeles is among a growing number of cities across the U.S., including San Francisco and New York City, requiring people show proof of vaccination to enter various types of businesses and venues. But rules in the nation's second-most-populous city, called SafePassLA, apply to more types of businesses and other indoor locations including concert halls, museums and convention centers. A sign reminding customers to be prepared to show their vaccine cards hangs at the Muddy Paw Coffee Shop in the Eagle Rock neighborhood, where owner Darren Laborie said he's thankful that the vast majority of his regulars have happily complied with the shifting regulations over the past year and a half. “We have to adapt to whatever rules are coming at us. And our customers go along with us,” Laborie said. Those that don't want to wear a mask or show vaccine proof can sit in the outdoor patio or take their coffees and pastries to go, he said. One year ago, Los Angeles was becoming the state's epicenter of the worst spike of the pandemic in California. By January an average of 500 people were dying statewide every day. To guard against another spike in cases, deaths and hospitalizations, the LA City Council voted 11-2 last month for the ordinance that requires people 12 and older to be fully vaccinated to enter indoor public spaces including sports arenas, museums, spas, indoor city facilities and other locations. Retail stores and shopping malls are exempt. Negative coronavirus tests within 72 hours of entry to those establishments would be required for people with religious or medical exemptions for vaccinations. Customers without proof can still use outdoor facilities and can briefly enter a business to use a restroom or pick up a food order. Business trade groups have said the mandate will sow confusion and could present safety concerns for employees tasked with checking customers' vaccination status. Laborie shares concerns that the rules could place “an undue burden” on small business owners. “A lot of businesses can't afford to have employees spending their time at the front door all the time. They just don't have the staffing,” he said. Melanie Bolen happily showed her vaccine card before having lunch inside Fred 62, an upscale diner in the city's Los Feliz neighborhood. “I mean, I'm fine with that," Bolen said. "If that's what's needed to help get things over with this pandemic, I'm all for it.” While many cold-weather states are seeing sharp increases in cases, California's per capita rate has been among the nation's lowest for two months and that has kept hospitalizations relatively low after a late-summer surge. In the last two weeks, Los Angeles County hospitalizations have fallen about 10%, mirroring the statewide trend. State forecasts show a continuing decline through Christmas. Among LA county's roughly 10 million people, 82% of eligible residents now have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose and 74% of those eligible are fully vaccinated, according to public health officials.” Remember that in 2021, where we had lockdowns and access to a vaccine, we had more COVID deaths this year, than we did in 2020. Lockdowns don't work, the vaxx don't work, and all these health bureaucracies need to go! Twitter Crackdown: Video And Photo Sharing Banned Without Consent Under First Day With New CEO https://www.dailywire.com/news/twitter-crackdown-video-and-photo-sharing-banned-without-consent-under-first-day-with-new-ceo?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=benshapiro According to the Daily Wire: “One day after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey resigned from the company he founded about 16 years ago, Twitter, under new CEO Parag Agrawal has issued a new ban that restricts sharing videos or photos without consent on the platform. The new addition was listed on Twitter's blog on Tuesday, saying, “NEW: media of private individuals without the permission of the person(s) depicted.” The new policy is designed to “help curb the misuse of media to harass, intimidate, and reveal the identities of private individuals, which disproportionately impacts women, activists, dissidents, and members of minority communities.” “Beginning today, we will not allow the sharing of private media, such as images or videos of private individuals without their consent. Publishing people's private info is also prohibited under the policy, as is threatening or incentivizing others to do so,” Twitter also noted. Twitter's guidelines will also leave room for interpretation based on “context.” “Our existing private information policy includes many exceptions in order to enable robust reporting on newsworthy events and conversations that are in the public interest,” Twitter's guidelines state.” Lastly, lets get an update on former disgraced Governor Cuomo and his brother “objective journalist” Chris Cuomo: Roll clip: https://www.today.com/video/chris-cuomo-s-link-with-former-ny-gov-andrew-cuomo-draws-new-focus-127500357987 What strikes me about all this, is that CNN claims to be an objective news source and yet they continue to hire journalist that cover up major news stories, or that masterbate on live company conference calls like Jeffrey Toobin did.

“Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly and I could not agree more with that.” Nydia Hahn Sharing experiences and information goes along way into humanizing people, and is effective when it comes to sensitizing people on social injustices. This is according to Nydia Hahn, who after going through racism took up the role to inform and educate others against social injustice. Nydia Han is an Emmy award winning television journalist, TEDx speaker, and creator of #ThisIsAmerica, a provocative three-part documentary series about racism and the diverse American experience. Nydia co-anchors 6abc Action News Sundays and is the station's consumer investigative reporter. She gets real results for Action News viewers by troubleshooting issues and exposing scams as well as dangerous products. Nydia is also committed to using her platform to uplift, empower, and give voice to traditionally underrepresented, marginalized groups. She is the recipient of the Pearl S. Buck International Woman of Influence award, NAAAP Inspire Award, and Global Voice Award from the World Woman Summit.  She was also named "Outstanding Ally" of Diversity and Inclusion by the Philadelphia Inquirer.   She graduated from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University and her career has taken her to television stations in Idaho, Oklahoma City, and Texas. Nydia is on the community advisory board for the Asian American Women's Coalition. She is also passionate about raising awareness and desperately needed funds for lung cancer research in memory of her mother. She enjoys good food, wine, and most of all a good laugh. And she is trying really, really hard to teach her two young children to speak Korean. In today's episode, Nydia will talk about her journey to becoming who she is today. She is also discusses on the importance of moving in to share in other people's experiences. Listen in!   Social media https://www.linkedin.com/in/nydiahan/ Three factors really compelled me to pursue journalism and first, I've always loved to write. [3:40] My parents instilled in me the importance of a life of service, and I believe strongly that we as journalists really serve our communities. [3:47] Number three, I've always been passionate about justice and particularly racial justice. [3:53] I originally wanted to write long form magazine pieces but then I did an internship at a television station and ended up catching the TV bug. [4:22] I was mesmerized by the power of moving pictures and sound and the immediacy of television news, because this was at a time when you had to wait overnight to get your news and print. [4:31] I was in Pocatello in south eastern Idaho and it was a great learning experience where those things that I learned have really stuck with me and helped me become the journalist that I am today. [5:26] When I'm writing, I am thinking about the pictures that we have, how our editor will be able to piece this together and cover what I'm saying. [7:44] People have no idea how much happens behind the scenes and I have great respect for our producers, editors or photographers. [8:56] Commercial break. [10:12] I have always been a proud Asian American so my mission is to amplify our experience and share what it means to be an Asian American. [12:01] When I was a little girl, very few people looked like me in my neighborhood and I was proud to share the culture and traditions and foods of my ancestors with my friends and people I knew. [12:13] As I got older, I started noticing discrimination and I became able to identify and label racism for what it was. [13:06] My desire to amplify the Asian American experience and change the AAPI stereotype and the ways in which we are very much wrongly perceived really grew. [13:15] My professional work to combat anti Asian hate began when a driver yelled “this is America at me”, and I responded to her in a live Facebook video that went viral. [13:25] That sent me on a path to really speak out and stand up for Asian Americans where I really just wanted to tell stories in the hopes that we can be seen for who we are. [13:53] The anti Asian hate we've seen amid the pandemic has made it crystal clear to the wider public how important this work is. [14:19] This is not just about Asian Americans, it is about how we as humans default to hate anytime we're afraid or uncertain and that really hurts our entire society. [14:31] I think that my response to her taught me something about myself where I also realized that I have some of my own work to do. [15:41] If I'm going to challenge people to look at themselves, I needed to sort of confront some of the biases that I myself have. [15:40] I am so happy with all of the shows and movies and podcasts that are coming out that help us all move in. [18:23] The more we can do to move in to get to know each other's experiences so that we don't see people as generalizations or stereotypes but just as individual human beings. [18:39] This not just about being Asian American, I really try to do this for every group that I think is traditionally unknown or misunderstood. [18:54] A lot of people are familiar with that Martin Luther King Jr. Quote, injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. [19:11] In this age we have all these ways to connect yet we seem more disconnected than ever before. [20:40] I just ask people to share their knowledge and share who they are to help others move in.

"Beyond Your News Feed: Understanding Contemporary Politics" is a podcast by the Department of Political Science. This episode of Beyond Your News Feed explores the fate of local news. Dr. Andrea McDonnell and Dr. Matt Guardino, both associate professors of political science, join host Dr. William Hudson, professor of political science, for a conversation about the dire straits of local newspapers and the impact on American democracy. McDonnell also serves as director of PC's new communications minor. Over the past couple of decades, local newspapers across the country have begun to disappear. Battered by huge revenue losses from declining advertising and circulation, newspaper owners have sought to reduce costs in a variety of ways, including selling newspaper buildings, outsourcing printing and other tasks, but mostly by firing reporters — depriving the paper of the very journalism that makes the paper valuable. This strategy, obviously, has meant newspapers that are thinner, with less news for their readers, and less able to monitor what is happening in the local community. The obvious result is even more declines in circulation and revenues. This decline in local news has affected every city in America and some of its most venerable, prize-winning papers such as the Chicago Tribune, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Baltimore Sun, and The Providence Journal. McDonnell and Guardino explain why local newspapers are in trouble, what effect this has on democracy and local citizens, and what might be done to restore vibrant local newspapers.

Today's show rundown: The left says that America is back so much, that Americans are buying too much. But if you look at the sales figures, we have the same amount of consuming going on at this time last year. But the hallmarks of socialism is - a lack of goods and services, hyperinflation, and the loss of personal freedoms...sound anything like what we have going on here? All CNN can talk about is Trump, and how ineffective he was as a President, and STILL talking about the Insurrection. They aren't covering anything on what the Biden Administration I doing. Chuck talks a bit about how the Biden / Obama administration launched a non-military coup on President Trump. A man who came along, and was concerned about the American people. So what is it that the Left is all about, that they give each other awards every day...what do they actually are about. These people actually despise the American People. Kamala Harris is at a 20 percent approval rating / all time recorded record for being disliked. Her and Biden's approval ratings, in under a year are under 30 Percent. Why is this not being talked about? All we hear is "they aren't Trump". 9 out of 10 Scientists...funded by the government...agree with the government on climate change. Imagine that...people who benefit from agreeing with the government...agree with the government. We meet the show guest Bonner Cohen, who says we accomplished nothing during this Glasgow Climate Change Conference (COP26). The global elites have determined we are experience a "Climate Crisis" that is caused by us. Because it is said that man made emissions, are heat trapping, we are causing the Earth to warm, and that it will be dangerous for life, that we have a human induced climate crisis. The people setting this all up who stand to benefit from all these climate change policies strongly...are all for it. BIO – Bonner R.

In Homer's Iliad, Hector, the eldest son of King Priam of Troy, was a model soldier, son, father, and friend, the champion of the Trojan army until he was killed by the Greek hero Achilles. So how did his name become a verb meaning "to intimidate or harrass"? That use was likely influenced by gangs of rowdy street toughs who roamed London in the 17th century and called themselves "Hectors." They may have thought themselves gallant young blades, but to the general populace they were swaggering bullies who intimidated passersby and vandalized property.

Imagine what it would be like if you didn’t have to wait days for your paycheck to be processed by the bank. Or getting a loan without having to go through a bank loan officer. That’s finance, decentralized. Fans of decentralized finance believe DeFi has the potential to make our current financial system more efficient, accessible and affordable by getting rid of intermediaries like banks, brokers and exchanges. “The goal of DeFi is to make financial services more democratic,” says Linda Jeng, a visiting scholar of financial technology and adjunct professor at Georgetown Law. “That means more open access. Anyone should be able to use it. It’s about empowering the customer. So users get to decide the rules of the game.” There’s a lot of hype around DeFi. It’s gone from $1 billion industry in 2018 to $90 billion in 2021. But there’s not a lot of regulation. On the show today, we’ll talk about the risks and rewards of decentralized finance. In the newsfix, we’ll stay on the DeFi theme and discuss a new Securities and Exchange Commission report on the GameStop brouhaha and explain why coal-fired power is on the rise in America.
