As Democrats work to whittle down the price tag of their social spending bill, many key policies that would impact the lives of millions of Americans are on the chopping block. One issue that's been renegotiated is a national paid leave policy -- cut down from the initial proposal of 12 weeks to four weeks. We hear from Americans across the country about how this issue has impacted their lives. PBS NewsHour is supported by - https://www.pbs.org/newshour/about/funders
Award-winning food writer Corby Kummer joined Boston Public Radio on Tuesday to discuss a pandemic-era increase of wage theft in the restaurant industry, following a recent report by the nonprofit restaurant advocacy group One Fair Wage. “[Forty-three] states still allow a tipped minimum wage, which means as low as $2.13 an hour,” Kummer said. “Employees who are waitstaff have the liberty to take home all their tips based on that. The catch is that it's on the restaurant manager to look to see, ‘what's the average hourly earning of those tipped minimum wage staff members of mine,' and ‘did it equal or better the state's minimum wage.' And if it didn't, they — the managers — have to make up for it by paying them enough money to make them whole.” “There's never been much enforcement of this, and there's less than ever enforcement now,” Kummer added. “There's evidence that there's more of this failure to make up for any of these losses than there was before the pandemic.” Kummer is the executive director of the Food and Society policy program at the Aspen Institute, a senior editor at The Atlantic and a senior lecturer at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy.

Noorani is the President & Chief Executive Officer of the National Immigration Forum. His forthcoming book is “Crossing Borders: The Reconciliation of a Nation of Immigrants.” Gov. Charlie Baker talks about how he thinks the state is doing on vaccinations following his mandates, and how he plans to approach housing issues. Baker is the governor of Massachusetts. Corby Kummer discusses the growing issue of wage theft in the restaurant industry, when waitstaff fail to make minimum wage off tips and their employer fails to pay the difference. Kummer is the executive director of the Food and Society policy program at the Aspen Institute, a senior editor at The Atlantic and a senior lecturer at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. John King weighs in on Virginia's mayoral race and the state of the Democrats' spending plan.

Many institutions adopted test-optional admissions policies out of necessity in the early days of the pandemic. EAB's Madeleine Rhyneer, an expert with more than 25 years of experience leading university admissions teams, says those hastily constructed policies are well-intentioned, but many are poorly defined. She and fellow EAB enrollment guru Michael Koppenheffer discuss different sides of the debate over the value of standardized test scores as well as the challenge of comparing apples to apples when evaluating the academic performance of students across different counties or states. They also share their top recommendations for enrollment leaders on how to codify and articulate their test-optional policies, so they are more easily understood by prospective students and their families.

On October 7, Andrew and Steve sat down with a close friend, Georgetown's Prof. Larry Gostin, for a lively live-cast conversation about his new book, ‘Global Health Security: A Blueprint for the Future.” The podcast captures that rich, vivid exchange. The big messages: We underestimate the power of the SAR-CoV-2 virus: it is wily and pernicious and will continue to surge. We cannot forget anti-microbial resistance. A fundamental shift is needed in the US international approach – away from charity and towards advancing technology transfer to manufacture vaccines in low and middle-income countries to create resilience. That requires far greater pressure upon Moderna and Pfizer to cooperate in meeting urgent global needs. The USG has the legal authorities to make that happen but has not yet followed through. USG health communications have been “pitiful” and left the public “utterly confused.” That too can be corrected. Professor Lawrence O. Gostin is University Professor at Georgetown University where he directs the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law.
La crescente attenzione al tema del cambiamento climatico sta spingendo gli stati a prontare misure fiscali e giuridiche a sostegno della transizione ecologica verso un'economia green. Esempi di policy sono la carbon tax e i sistemi di 'cap and trade' delle quote di CO2, ma concretamente di che si tratta? Quali sono i principi sui cui si basano? Quali sono altri possibili strumenti per un approccio non ideologico al cambiamento climatico? Queste le domande al centro della live con Carlo Stagnaro, Nazareno Lecis e Matteo Poloni. #climatechange #greeneconomy #policy #transizione #carbontax

Many of Texas' higher learning institutions, which have collectively received billions of dollars in federal contracts, are trying to figure out whether they need to require employees to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. An executive order from President Joe Biden that requires all federal contractors to get a shot goes into effect soon but Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has already banned such directives in the state.

The conversation of diversity, equity, and inclusion and DEI policy creation is something on the minds of many agency owners. How to tackle such a delicate and complicated topic can be overwhelming and confusing. The fear of getting it wrong or not doing enough can lead to no action at all, which we can all agree does nothing to further the cause. But how exactly do we begin and how do we get it right? Nikki McCord returns to expand upon the conversation we started in Episode 304 (“The ROI of DEI). Nikki consults people and companies on how to make committed changes, in both policy and behavior, surrounding the topic of DEI. She's a passionate expert on the subject and the discussion is sure to inspire ideas and action. In this episode of Build a Better Agency, Nikki McCord and I talk specifically about the concept of DEI policies and how to best approach them. Beyond that, we look at the way tiny shifts can make a big impact and why we need to give ourselves permission to make mistakes along the way. Beyond our own agencies, we also discuss how to incorporate these challenging conversations into our work with clients and vendors.

Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren's policy of Indian population removal, which lead to the Trail of Tears and thousands of deaths, was not uncontested or passively allowed at the time. Nearly half of Congress opposed it, as did petition writers all over the nation. So did one of the President's former friends and of course, most of the elected representatives of the Cherokee people. These debates happened not in modern times but then. One of Jackson's friends voted against so he would not be Ashamed in the Day of Judgment and sought the Presidency in his stead.

On this jam-packed episode, hosts Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham begin by talking to Sally Bakko, a recently appointed (by Governor Abbott) board member of the Gulf Coast Protection District (GCPD) who also serves as the Director of Policy and Government Relations for the City of Galveston. Sally explains the purpose of the GCPD, which was created by the Texas legislature to operate and leverage state funding to build the unique flood control and surge protection needs for Texas's coastal communities. When completed, the Coastal Texas study will be the largest civil works project in U.S. history, and the GCPD will serve as the local sponsor in backing the project with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Then, Brandon Hill and his new assistant Russell Cole, join the show to bring us the perspective of City of Galveston's Coastal Resources Division, which oversees implementation of the "City of Galveston Dune Protection and Beach Access Plan." Brandon and Russell oversee projects related to shoreline protection and beach nourishment, and assist property owners in navigating the City's beachfront construction standards for construction along the coast.

How do we make decisions? What factors influence the final outcome? Do default settings change our preferences? Every decision we make; from choosing something on a menu to deciding whether to be an organ donor, is influenced by our environmental context and the default selections presented to us. Professor Eric J. Johnson has distilled the latest behavioral science research into his newest book, The Elements of Choice: Why the Way We Decide Matters, and we are thrilled to talk with him about it on this episode of Behavioral Grooves. Eric is Director of the Center for Decision Sciences at Columbia Business School at Columbia University. He examines the interaction between Behavioral Decision Research, Economics and consumer decision making. The implications of his research come together in real world applications such as public policy and marketing. Eric talks with us about how options are presented to decision-makers and how framing affects choices. Our decisions are “assembled”, as Eric likes to put it, in the moment and are not necessarily pre-determined by our preferences. Choice architects have very influential power over decision-makers but Eric highlights to us that we are all designers, and with that comes a moral responsibility. Topics (3:56) How Leading Human™ can help with returning to the office. (6:28) Welcome and speed round. (8:00) How interference affects our decision making. (10:32) The controversy of organ donation defaults. (16:32) We are all designers using the tools of choice architecture. (19:21) How sludge impacts our decision making. (22:42) How context influences defaults. (26:14) What factors moderate the impact of default settings? (29:01) Making choices in the real world vs. classic economic thinking. (32:18) The effects of asking people how long they will live vs. what year they expect to die. (35:04) Smart defaults: defaults set specifically for you. (38:02) What is Query Theory? (39:15) Choice architecture around vaccinations. (42:44) What area does Eric want to research in the future? (44:44) What music does Eric default to?

In episode 126 of Berkeley Talks, evolutionary biologist Erica Bree Rosenblum, a professor in UC Berkeley's Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management, tells a story about when she held a little frog — the last known member of its species — in her hand as it died. "I am a scientist who studies extinction," says Rosenblum. "I am a scientist who thinks about biodiversity and interconnectedness every single day ... but the difference between thinking about it and feeling a life slipping away in my hand and knowing that it was the last of an entire branch of the biodiversity on our planet was emotionally impactful in a way that I never could have expected." In that moment, she says, she woke up to how hard it is to feel interconnectedness for students in society, even if we know it to be true. In this talk, Rosenblum explores why we keep this feeling of connection at arm's length and how we can begin to build it back into our lives. This talk was given on Oct. 8 and was sponsored by UC Berkeley's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI). Listen to the episode and read a transcript on Berkeley News.

Science isn't political. But that doesn't mean that scientists don't have influence in politics. Join us for our conversation with Dr. Naomi Charalambakis, Associate Director of Science Policy at the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, to learn about how animal research informs human health and why it's important for scientists to advocate for increased federal funding for science. Plus, is greener air travel on the horizon? And can photosynthesis be harnessed to restore nerve function? - these topics are covered in our news segment. Our Guest: Naomi Charalambakis, PhD, is a Senior Science Policy Analyst for the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), a coalition of 29 scientific societies collectively representing over 130,000 individual biological and biomedical researchers. In this role, she leads efforts of FASEB's Animals in Research and Education working group, developing policy statements, tracking congressional legislation and agency directives related to animal use in federal research, and creating resources for the lab animal community. This includes preparing comments to federal Requests for Information. Additionally, Dr. Charalambakis serves as the staff liaison for the FASEB Shared Research Resources Task Force, coordinating with volunteers across the country to guide policy discussions pertaining to core facilities. Dr. Charalambakis launched her policy career at FASEB in November 2018, after graduating with her doctorate in Anatomical Sciences and Neurobiology from the University of Louisville School of Medicine where she utilized mouse transgenics to evaluate the role of retinal input on inhibitory interneurons in the visual thalamus. As a PhD Candidate, Dr. Charalambakis spent the summer of 2015 as a science policy intern at Research!America, and co-founded and served as Director of the first science policy University of Louisville student organization.

This week, Brie gets to the bottom of “Shorism,” — the messaging philosophy advanced by polling wiz kid David Shor, also known as popularism. Why does the idea that Democrats should do what's popular rankle so many progressives, who've long defended Bernie on the grounds that he's a populist, not a radical? And why are liberals so eager to embrace Shor when they rejected Bernie? What are the flaws in Shor's approach, and what are the take always? And when will the left finally embrace the value of a messaging strategy?

In this episode I speak with Russ Feingold who is currently the President of the American Constitution Society, the country's leading progressive legal organization. He previously served as a United States Senator for the state of Wisconsin for eighteen years and for ten years before that as State Senator in Wisconsin. He also served as the Special Envoy for the African Great Lakes and the Democratic Republic of the Congo and as a professor at several colleges and law schools. Russ is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin at Madison, Oxford University where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar, and Harvard Law School. In our conversation we discuss his path to politics, how becoming a lawyer allowed him to have both an impactful and varied career, the role of thinking big and taking chances in creating social change, the problems of today's political climate, ACS's new podcast "Broken Law," and his thoughts on the future of the federal judiciary and the United States Supreme Court. **PERSONAL NOTE: My wife is a Director of Policy and Program at the American Constitution Society** If you enjoy this episode, make sure to sign up for future episodes at www.howilawyer.com or subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.
