Peter Boghossian had been a professor of Philosophy at Portland State University for a decade when he famously resigned in September 2021, on account of harassment and an increasingly illiberal atmosphere, limiting free thought, free speech, and critical discourse. He is now engaged in a "Street Epistomology" project, wherein he engages the public in conversations about controversial topics, encouraging them to question their beliefs and maybe even change their minds. In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with him about the project, how to disagree with friends, and why he loves My 600-lb Life.

In this revisited episode of Beyond the Balance Sheet, we are joined by Thayer Cheatham Willis, an internationally acclaimed author, educator, speaker, and leading authority in wealth counseling. Thayer shares insight on how her background helped inform the career she chose to pursue and the importance of wealth counseling.We chat about the importance of exemplifying values and how children will learn from what they see, rather than what they hear. Tune in as Thayer dives into how wealthy families react to stress, mental health, and substance use.   IN THIS EPISODE:   [02:20] How Thayer's background helped inform the career that she chose to pursue. Thayer speaks about the importance of wealth counseling.  [08:00] Parents need to exemplify values; kids will learn from what they see rather than what they hear.    [10:00] How wealthy families are reacting to stress from the pandemic. Thayer speaks about mental health and substance use during these times.  [21:00] The parents of the family will often pay for wealth counseling; however, young people still need to have their own journey.    KEY TAKEAWAYS:   It is important to role model the behavior you want to see from your kids.  Teens need to live their own lives; sometimes, a wealth counselor can help parents see differences within the family.  Parents need to let their children make their own decisions. An advisor can help parents accept their child's journey.   Even if you agree to disagree, parents and children can come to terms with each other's different life paths.    LINKS MENTIONED:   Website   www.thayerwillis.com LinkedIn   www.linkedin.com/in/thayerwillis   BIO:   Thayer Cheatham Willis is an internationally acclaimed author, educator, speaker, and leading authority in the area of wealth counseling.

A child of wealth herself, born into the founding family of the multinational Georgia-Pacific Corporation, she brings to her field a unique insider's perspective on contending with family dynamics as they relate to the mental and emotional challenges of wealth. Accredited with an M.A. from the University of Oregon and an M.S.W. from Portland State University, Thayer is a licensed clinical social worker (L.C.S.W.) specializing in wealth-related issues. Thayer offers thirty years of experience in a field she helped pioneer and dominates as one of its most prominent, foremost authorities. Working privately with a global client-base, she has helped over 10,000 inheritors and their families in eight countries and four continents resolve wealth-related family conflicts.   Thayer is the author of Navigating the Dark Side of Wealth: A Life Guide for Inheritors, an invaluable introduction for families on the difficult journey to freedom beyond wealth, and Beyond Gold: True Wealth for Inheritors, which focuses on how individuals can be responsible with the financial wealth in their lives, keep it in perspective, and be free to take on the tough, rewarding task of enhancing relationships. Thayer wrote a column for Worth Magazine for several years, has had many articles published in additional national magazines and writes a quarterly newsletter, available on her website. She also has been interviewed for top financial publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, The Business Journal, and Time Magazine.

GSA Section Podcast: Moral Distress in Long-Term Care Employees

GSA on Aging

Play Episode Listen Later Jan 4, 2023 47:43


Amid persistently inadequate numbers of direct care workers for resident care, long-term care administrators and staff members continue in their attempts to provide care for residents. The staffing crisis has led to regulatory issues, new sanctions from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and benchmarks for quality of care while facilities care for frail and dependent residents in the best ways possible given the circumstances. Moreover, the staffing crisis has resulted in the experience of moral distress for many direct health care workers. Moral distress occurs when health care professionals cannot act on their own moral judgment or what they believe to be right in a particular situation because of institutional or internal constraints. This podcast will feature the work and insights of GSA members Ozcan Tunalilar, PhD, and Beth Galik, PhD, CRNP, FAAN, FAANP. Dr. Tunalilar's research examines the role of organizational, contextual, and socioeconomic factors that contribute to the reproduction of inequalities in access to high-quality long-term care and in residents' experiences in the long-term care system. Dr. Galik's research has focused on care for residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities, functional and cognitive assessment, and enhancement of the geriatric workforce.  Guests:  Ozcan Tunalilar, PhD, Assistant Professor, Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning, Institute on Aging, Portland State University; and Elizabeth Galik, PhD, CRNP, FAAN, FAANP, Professor and Chair, Organizational Systems and Adult Health, University of Maryland School of Nursing. Host: Debra Dobbs, PhD, Associate Professor, College of Behavioral and Community Sciences, School of Aging Studies, and Academic Director, Center for Hospice, Palliative Care, and End-of-Life Studies, University of South Florida.

Each state is also guided by distinct and different regulations. This podcast will feature the work and insights of GSA members Tara McMullan, PhD, MPH, and Anna Beeber, PhD, RN, FGSA, FAAN. Dr. McMullen's work focuses on quality in post-acute and long-term care settings, policy and aging, and the direct care workforce, including scope of practice. Dr. McMullen is a technical advisor for the CMS Division of Chronic and Post-Acute Care. Dr. Beeber's research focuses on improving the quality of care for older adults living in long-term care settings, in particular examining staffing, service delivery, and resident outcomes to guide future efforts at matching services with needs.  Guests: Tara McMullen, PhD, MPH, Adjunct Faculty, Master of Science in Aging and Health Program, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Georgetown University; and Anna Beeber, PhD, RN, FGSA, FAAN, Associate Professor, Associate Dean for Faculty Development, Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing.

You have the power to make key decisions on the quality of life you want for yourself, your family, and your community. Voting is your chance to stand up for the issues you care about like affordable housing, economic justice, environmental protection, and quality education. While Presidential or other national elections draw significant attention, midterm and local elections typically see less voter turnout. A Portland State University study found that fewer than 15% of eligible voters were turning out to vote for Mayors, Council Members, and other local offices. Low turnout means that important local issues are determined by a limited group of voters, making a single vote even more statistically meaningful. While certain propositions may be popular, and therefore seem like a sure thing, they can fail if people stay home.

Brain-derived neurotrophic factor plays a positive role in the survival of brain cells known as neurons. A reduction in BDNF expression occurs in Alzheimer and Parkinson diseases, multiple sclerosis and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Antidepressants and anthocyanin supplements have been shown to increase BDNF gene expression, and serum or plasma levels have been elevated by exercise and omega-3 fatty acid, resveratrol or zinc supplementation. For their review and meta-analysis, Fahimeh Agh of Iran University of Medical Sciences and colleagues identified four trials that evaluated the effects of zinc supplements on serum or plasma BDNF levels among 185. Zinc dosages ranged from 25–30 milligrams per day given for 84–90 days.  Pooled results of the trials found significantly higher BDNF levels among participants who received zinc compared with participants in the control groups. The increase in BDNF was significant at 30 milligram doses (which were used in 3 trials) and at all trial durations. Among the 3 trials that analyzed serum zinc levels, participants who were given zinc supplements had significantly increased zinc levels in comparison with the control participants.  “A large body of evidence indicated BDNF as an important predictive factor for following the beginning, progress and cure of brain disorders due to its main role in brain neurogenesis and neuroplasticity,” Agh and her associates wrote.  “Increased circulating levels of BDNF as a result of zinc supplementation suggest that zinc supplementation may be a safe and effective strategy to counteract neurodegenerative diseases that are correlated with low BDNF levels,” they concluded. Soybean foods may protect menopausal women against osteoporosis  University of Hull (UK), November 1, 2022 Eating a diet rich in both soy protein and isoflavones can protect menopausal women from bone weakening and osteoporosis, according to the results of a preliminary study presented today at the Society for Endocrinology annual conference in Edinburgh. Soybean foods contain chemicals known as isoflavones that are similar in structure to oestrogen and so could theoretically protect women against osteoporosis by mimicking the action of oestrogen. In this study, researchers from the University of Hull gave two hundred women in early menopause a daily supplement containing soy protein with 66mg of isoflavones or a supplement with soy protein alone for six months. The researchers investigated changes in the women's bone activity by measuring certain proteins (βCTX and P1NP) in their blood.  They found that the women on the soy diet with isoflavones had significantly lower levels of βCTX than the women on soy alone, suggesting that their rate of bone loss was slowing down and lowering their risk of developing osteoporosis. Women taking soy protein with isoflavones were also found to have decreased risk of cardiovascular disease than those taking soy alone. “The 66 mg of isoflavone that we use in this study is equivalent to eating an oriental diet, which is rich in soy foods. In contrast, we only get around 2-16 mg of isoflavone with the average western diet.” “Supplementing our food with isoflavones could lead to a significant decrease in the number of women being diagnosed with osteoporosis.” Study finds diet high in saturated fat can reprogram immune cells in mice Portland State University, November 7, 2022 A new study by Portland State University researchers is the first to show that eating a diet exclusively high in saturated fats can reprogram the mouse immune system, making it better able to fight off infection but more susceptible to systemic inflammatory conditions, including sepsis. Brooke Napier, assistant professor of biology at PSU, led the study, which was published in eLife. The ketogenic or “keto” diet is a popular high-fat diet used for weight loss or to control epileptic seizures. This study shows that when mice eat a ketogenic diet that is high in saturated fats it can have a significant impact on their immune system.  A previous study by Napier and colleagues found that mice fed a high-fat, high-sugar Western diet were more susceptible to sepsis and had a higher mortality rate than mice fed a standard diet. In the current study, the researchers found similar effects in mice fed a high-fat ketogenic diet, suggesting that dietary fat may play a role in sepsis.  The researchers focused on one particular fat found in the blood of the mice fed a ketogenic diet: palmitic acid, which is commonly found in animal fats and dairy products. Remarkably, mice fed a normal diet who were injected with palmitic acid also became more susceptible to sepsis.  “It was just exposure to this one saturated fat that made them more susceptible to sepsis mortality,” says Napier. “The idea that you could have a specific fat in your diet that would cause such a drastic outcome in disease is kind of incredible.”  Napier and her team next probed just how exactly high levels of palmitic acid could initiate sepsis. Their first clue came when they noticed that mice fed the Western diet, mice fed the ketogenic diet, and mice treated with palmitic acid all had high levels of inflammatory cytokines, immunological hormones that can cause fever and systemic inflammation during sepsis.  The presence of the inflammatory cytokines suggested that palmitic acid could be affecting the immune system by causing inflammation, but Napier soon discovered that the story was more complicated—and more interesting—than that. Napier and colleagues also found that another type of fat may be able to counteract the harmful effects of palmitic acid. Oleic acid, a polyunsaturated fat found in many plant-based oils including olive oil, can block the synthesis of ceramide, a fatty substance that can initiate a stress response in cells and may play a role in the hyperinflammatory response that causes sepsis. When the researchers fed mice a ketogenic diet for two weeks but also gave them oleic acid for the final three days, they no longer showed an increased susceptibility to sepsis. Coenzyme Q10 consumption reverses cholesterol transport Sun Yat Sen University (Taiwan), October 31, 2022 According to news reporting out of Guangdong, People's Republic of China, research stated, “We have recently shown that coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) enhances macrophage reverse cholesterol transport via activator protein-1/miRNA-378/ABCG1 signal pathway in vivo and in vitro. Whether CoQ10 exerts similar beneficial effects in human is currently unknown.” Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Sun Yat Sen University, “The present study evaluated the effect of CoQ10 on ABCG1-mediated macrophage cholesterol efflux in 20 healthy volunteers. Participants were given 100 mg CoQ10 twice daily or placebo for 1 week with a 1-week washout period. Human monocyte-derived macrophages (MDMs) were differentiated under pooled sera obtained before (preCoQ10) or after CoQ10 (postCoQ10) consumption. The CoQ10-induced inhibition of MDMs foam cell formation was blocked by ABCG1 silencing in postCoQ10 MDMs incubated with postCoQ10 sera compared to preCoQ10 sera. The cholesterol efflux to HDL, and mRNA as well as protein expressions of ATP-binding cassette transporter G1 (ABCG1) were augmented in postCoQ10 MDMs incubated with postCoQ10 sera compared to preCoQ10 sera. The change in the serum CoQ10 concentration positively correlated with cholesterol efflux to HDL and ABCG1 mRNA level in the CoQ10 group. MDMs treated with purified CoQ10 had an enhanced cholesterol efflux to HDL.” According to the news editors, the research concluded: “CoQ10 consumption may have an atheroprotective property by inducing ABCG1 expression and enhancing HDL-mediated macrophage cholesterol efflux in healthyindividuals.” Study confirms that processed foods key to rising obesity University of Sydney (Australia), November 7, 2022 A year-long study of the dietary habits of 9,341 Australians has backed growing evidence that highly processed and refined foods are the leading contributor of rising obesity rates in the Western world. “As people consume more junk foods or highly processed and refined foods, they dilute their dietary protein and increase their risk of being overweight and obese, which we know increases the risk of chronic disease,” said lead author Dr. Amanda Grech, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the CPC and the university's School of Life and Environmental Sciences. “It's increasingly clear that our bodies eat to satisfy a protein target,” added Professor David Raubenheimer, the Leonard Ullmann Chair in Nutritional Ecology at the School of Life and Environmental Sciences. “But the problem is that the food in Western diets has increasingly less protein. So, you have to consume more of it to reach your protein target, which effectively elevates your daily energy intake. The University of Sydney scientists analyzed data from a cross-sectional survey of nutrition and physical activity in 9,341 adults, known as the National Nutrition and Physical Activity Survey with a mean age of 46.3 years. They found the population's mean energy intake was 8,671 kilojoules (kJ), with the mean percentage of energy from protein being just 18.4 percent, compared with 43.5 percent from carbohydrates and from 30.9 percent from fat, and just 2.2 percent from fiber and 4.3 percent from alcohol. They also found a statistically significant difference between groups by the third meal of the day: those with a higher proportion of energy from protein at the start of the day had much lower total energy intake for the day. Meanwhile, those who consumed foods low in protein at the start of the day proceeded to increase consumption, indicating they were seeking to compensate with a higher consumption of overall energy. This is despite the fact the first meal was the smallest for both groups, with the least amount of energy and food consumed, whereas the last meal was the largest. Participants with a lower proportion of protein than recommended at the first meal consumed more discretionary foods—energy-dense foods high in saturated fats, sugars, salt, or alcohol—throughout the day, and less of the recommended five food groups (grains; vegetables/legumes; fruit; dairy and meats). Consequently, they had an overall poorer diet at each mealtime, with their percentage of protein energy decreasing even as their discretionary food intake rose—an effect the scientists call ‘protein dilution'. While many factors contribute to excess weight gain—including eating patterns, physical activity levels, and sleep routines—the University of Sydney scientists argue the body's powerful demand for protein, and its lack in highly processed and refined foods, is a key driver of energy overconsumption and obesity in the Western world. Violence on TV: Effects from age 3 can stretch into the teen years University of Montreal, November 7, 2022 Watching violent TV during the preschool years can lead to later risks of psychological and academic impairment by the summer before middle school starts, according to a new study led by Linda Pagani, a professor at Université de Montréal's School of Psycho-Education. Before now, “it was unclear to what extent exposure to typical violent screen content in early childhood—a particularly critical time in brain development—can predict later psychological distress and academic risks,” said Pagani. “The detection of early modifiable factors that influence a child's later well-being is an important target for individual and community health initiatives, and psychological adjustment and academic motivation are essential elements in the successful transition to adolescence,” she added. “So, we wanted to see the long-term effect of typical violent screen exposure in preschoolers on normal development, based on several key indicators of youth adjustment at age 12.” To do this, Pagani and her team examined the violent screen content that parents reported their children viewing between ages 3 1/2 and 4 1/2, and then conducted a follow-up when the children reached age 12. “Compared to their same-sex peers who were not exposed to violent screen content, boys and girls who were exposed to typical violent content on television were more likely to experience subsequent increases in emotional distress,” said Pagani. “They also experienced decreases in classroom engagement, academic achievement and academic motivation by the end of the sixth grade,” she added. “For youth, transition to middle school already represents a crucial stage in their development as adolescents. Feeling sadness and anxiety and being at risk academically tends to complicate their situation.” In all, the parents of 978 girls and 998 boys participated in the study of violent TV viewing at the preschool age. At age 12 years, the children and their teachers rated the children's psychosocial and academic achievement, motivation and participation in classroom activities. “Preschool children tend to identify with characters on TV and treat everything they see as real,” Pagani said. “They are especially vulnerable to humorous depictions of glorified heroes and villains who use violence as a justified means to solve problems. “Repeated exposure,” she added, “to rapidly paced, adrenaline-inducing action sequences and captivating special effects could reinforce beliefs, attitudes and impressions that habitual violence in social interactions is ‘normal.' Mislearning essential social skills can make it difficult to fit in at school.” Added Bernard, “Just like witnessing violence in real life, being repeatedly exposed to a hostile and violent world populated by sometimes grotesque-looking creatures could trigger fear and stress and lead these children to perceive society as dangerous and frightening. And this can lead to habitually overreacting in ambiguous social situations. In the preschool years, the number of hours in a day is limited, and the more children get exposed to aggressive interactions (on screens) the more they might think it normal to behave that way.”

Prompted by the 2020 murder of George Floyd and the nationwide protests that followed, The Oregonian/OregonLive chose to examine this newspaper's racist history. The first installment of the new series looks at the two white men primarily responsible for The Oregonian throughout its first 60 years as a daily paper: Henry Pittock, the publisher and majority owner, and Harvey Scott, the editor and minority owner. “The Oregonian was a racist newspaper,” said Darrell Millner, an emeritus professor at Portland State University and authority on Black history in Oregon, calling the paper both a reflection of a racist society and a force helping to perpetuate it. The overtly racist words Pittock and Scott printed from 1861 to 1919 made Oregon a more hostile place for people of color to live, excusing lynching, supporting segregation, opposing equal rights. They are still honored throughout Portland today as the namesakes for a mountain, mansion, city park, university building, downtown building and two elementary schools. On the latest episode of Beat Check with The Oregonian, editor Therese Bottomly discusses the series, her apology and the future. Bottomly outlines how the newspaper plans to better engage with communities of color going forward.

Coty Raven Morris the Founder of Being Human Together, a budding community rooted in music education striving to normalize difficult topics in our field through conversation and connection. BHT seeks to discuss traditionally taboo topics like mental health, systemic oppression, diversity, and inclusivity. Here are the takeaways Intentional relationships lead to authentic relationships that can expand, grow and evolve together If you are in relationship with someone who isn't growing and evolving - or if you aren't growing and evolving - the distance between you will continue to grow We can be a toxin to ourselves by maintaining relationships that no longer serve us whether that's a job, a friendship or a romantic relationship Delayed obedience is disobedience. What you don't correct, you give permission to Lean into dissonance - there is beauty there Trust your gut. If you won't listen to your own compass, it's difficult to trust yourself in a relationship Compromise can be a form of assimiliation. Be careful what you compromise on. Guilt is the body's way of asking for a time out Choir and arts give you community of people who look out for you Don't leave DEI efforts for someone else. Get involved. And do not expect people to advocate for themselves. It takes all of us. Social injustice occurs when boundaries are violated. If someone asks you to or to not do something, listen. Homelessness / houselessness doesn't look a certain way Arts has always and will continue to save humanity It is your responsibility to set aside time to be creative so that you have the freedom to create Contact Coty Website: https://www.cotyravenmorris.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cotyraven/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/cotyravenmorris TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@cotyraven?lang=en Being Human Together: https://www.beinghumantogether.net/ Coty's Book - "When I Grow Up" - https://fflat-books.com/product/when-i-grow-up/?fbclid=IwAR3lP8BfOJZA9K0wX7l7HYNc6lCy4uMqpzpcGU-u2FW2GgUKvqHzx41RtIk Coty's Music - https://www.brileemusic.com/coty-raven-morris Contact Brenda Website: brendawinkle.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brendawinkle/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brenda.winkle111 TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@brendawinkle111 LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/brenda-winkle-empowerment/ Email: brenda@brendawinkle.com Free Meditation https://www.brendawinkle.com/feelbetter Free Guide and Cheat Sheet to Feel Better Fast https://www.brendawinkle.com/feelbetterfast Oregon Coast Reiki I Retreat https://www.brendawinkle.com/retreat

Pete Boghossian is a philosopher with little tolerance for nonsense, whose efforts to broadly encourage critical thinking using Socratic methods began early on. While doing his PhD, he worked with inmates to see if he could impact on their moral reasoning through a process of Socratic questioning.Viewing faith-based beliefs as delusional, he worked on ways to encourage believers to question their beliefs. Because of the inherent difficulties in having such conversations Peter later worked with James Linsdsay to produce a book entitled How to Have Impossible Conversations, outlining a series of techniques aimed at producing productive, rather than defensive, conversations. These techniques form a part of his current program of Street Epistemology, where he takes critical thinking and questioning out into the public, traveling around the country having a series of open conversations with people, and seeing if they are willing to change their beliefs. Peter became more well known among the public when, with Lindsay, and Helen Pluckrose, he wrote a series of spoof papers submitted to gender studies journals, designed to show what they regarded as the lack of true scholarship in that discipline. Then, most recently, he resigned his position at Portland State University in response to what he said was harassment from the administration, and its lack of commitment to free speech and open inquiry. All of these topics provided fodder for a fascinating discussion, which I hope you enjoy. As always, an ad-free video version of this podcast is also available to paid Critical Mass subscribers .

Dr. Stephen Percy became the full time President at Portland State University in 2020. President Percy said the most surprising part of his career was “It was not linear and certainly not what I was planning.” When asked about what change you see are needed in higher education. President Percy said, “higher education has been changing rapidly and then you throw in the pandemic which led to a lot of instability.” Three areas he thinks is important in education are to advance racial justice and equity, instructional pedagogy and modality with flexibility that online learning provides and packaging with “stackable degrees” and finally relevant in today's world. President Percy gave an example on how he creates change. He read a New Yorker article about “the Big One” and the importance of being prepared for a future earthquake at 9.0 in the Pacific Northwest. He built a multi-disciplinary Emergency Management degree at PSU to address this future concern. Recently he invited staff to collaborate to put together a new degree for Climate action work. President Percy said he manages to bring about change by creating “connectivity without disrupting everything else.” Bridget asked President Percy what he is most proud of. He responded, “I believe there's a lot of ways we can come together (with the community) and learn…mutuality of knowledge, learning, sharing, and growing. The tremendous power of knowledge creation and instruction and opportunity creation that universities bring” to the community. He mentioned the pandemic was surprising and unusual. This unexpected disruption created more flexibility in modality with online learning. The best advice President Percy ever heard was, “You have to listen.” Listening to people's pain with empathy goes a long way. Advice he consistently gives others is to “develop your own sort of equity lens. A set of internal questions that relate to whatever you are thinking about creating, implementing, or evaluating. What is the impact on people who are traditionally marginalized?” Empathy skills help a lot to “understand where people are coming from” and find problems to solve. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/innovationalliance/message
