For today's episode we embark on part two of our discussion on the U.S. Census.  Protecting the data privacy of survey respondents has always been a central consideration for the U.S Census Bureau, and throughout its history, many methods have been developed and implemented. For the 2020 Census, the Bureau adopted a new form of privacy protection—differential privacy which was received with mixed reaction. To further understand why the Census Bureau adopted this new form of privacy protection and to help explore the concerns raised about differential privacy, we invited two experts who represent both sides of the debate and who each contributed to the Harvard Data Science Review special issue on the 2020 U.S. Census.  Our guests are: John Abowd, Associate Director for Research and Methodology, Chief Scientist at the U.S. Census Bureau, and author of the The 2020 Census Disclosure Avoidance System TopDown Algorithm for HDSR. danah boyd, founder and president of Data & Society, Principal Researcher at Microsoft, Visiting Professor at New York University, and author of Differential Perspectives: Epistemic Disconnects Surrounding the U.S. Census Bureau's Use of Differential Privacy for HDSR.

Podcast Producer Alphecca Perpetua shares her sentiments on the reality of the nonexistent Filipino identity dating back to the three principal peoples of pre-historic and ancient Philippines: the Negritos, the Malays, and the Indones, who already greatly differ in phenotypes; from skin color to survival behaviour. On the other hand, Resident Historian Amiel "Cortz" Cortes paralleled the ideology of "The China Man" being well-grounded to their Chinese identity and ancestry, same as Jewish communities, while modern-day Filipinos would easily adapt to different cultures and practices. And also the supposed issue behind Andrés Bonifacio's scheme to use José Rizal's name during KKK meetings that led to the latter's eventual demise. In other words, "Why, Andrés? Why!"

Podcast Producer Alphecca Perpetua asked Resident Historian Amiel "Cortz" Cortes if the 1986 EDSA Revolution and the 2022 Philippine Elections results were both contrasting historical events, and found that the two weren't as different and weren't as ironic from 16th to 19th-century Las Islas Filipinas after all; with cities, municipalities, and towns still ruled and governed by the same Principalía (or ruling Mestizo Class) now simply known as the "Politician-Elect". He added, "I was using these families as examples that not much has changed in the Philippine society since the Spanish period. How our society is run is simply dictated by the choices of a very few wealthy elite families. The Principalía of the 1800s pretty much dictated how their local communities were governed. Fast forward to today, we are still slaves to the choices of a few wealthy families who may or may not come from the Principalía of old. This idea came from Alfred McCoy in his book, 'An Anarchy of Families: State and Family in the Philippines.' A must-read especially in these [trying] times."

Resident Historian Amiel "Cortz" Cortes claimed that the not-so-secret society KKK was the original "Pyramid Scheme" in the Philippines due to the nature of its fractal recruitment style of triangle system and grades. And while heavily stationed in the Luzon-Manila area, the KKK started recruiting members in the Visayas region; primarily around the Iloilo and Negros area due to the Mestizo's wealthy network and connections brought by large profits of estates and plantations, which eventually led to the recruitment of Hiligaynon revolutionary leader Lt.-Gen Pantaleón "León Kilat" Villegas to spread word of an upcoming rebellion on the highly urbanized Cebuano shores that would soon be known as the bloody battle of Tres de Abril.

With all the 16th-century Spanish ruckus between Cebu and Manila, whatever happened to Mindanao? Resident Historian Amiel "Cortz" Cortes recounts on the Spanish-Moro conflict originating from medieval 11th-century Europe, where Muslim-Christianity hostility was first recorded. Apart from infighting issues between a few Muslim tribes, the sea border (Bohol Sea) separating Visayas and Mindanao also contributed to the slow progress — with an additional note that the Ifugao tribes within the Cordillera region (Northern Luzon) were also free from Spanish reign; mentioning their threats of Spanish heads displayed on spikes and poles within routes as warnings.

Amiel "Cortz" Cortes) An Excerpt: Season 1, Episode 02, Rated-PG13 "Lay Back" | Music by Brian Withycombe SPONSORED BY: Studio Historias, Broadcasting & Multimedia Productions https://show.studiohistorias.com AMIEL "Cortz" CORTES is a Cebu-based Historical Researcher & Consultant. He graduated with a degree in AB History at the University of San Carlos, Philippines in 2015, and worked as a Program Officer for Research at the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation where he contributed as a Principal Researcher, Indexer, Editorial Assistant, and Field Researcher for various local and regional events, exhibits, academic publications, and projects. THE VIRGIN MARY SYMBOLISM. In 1986, it was believed that the Lady of Fátima—the Catholic title of Mary that's based on the Marian apparitions of three shepherd children at Fátima, Portugal in 1917—"miraculously mediated" a peaceful revolution against former Philippine president Ferdinand Marcos Sr, where demonstrators largely consisted of Roman Catholic nuns who offered flowers to soldiers while praying the rosary. Two years later, a "Holy Ground" marker known as the EDSA Shrine was built as an act of thanksgiving to the Virgin Mary. In 2019, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts of the Philippines declared the church as an "Important Cultural Property". PHILIPPINES, A MATRIARCHAL NATION. Stemming from pre-colonial social structures, the Philippines already allowed equal importance among kinships, where women inherited property, commanded as religious leaders, composed the military forces, and led villages in the absence of a male heir. Today, Filipino women still contribute to the decision-making process within families, businesses, and the country. The Philippines currently ranks 7th in the Gender-Equality List for Southeast and East Asia in the 2022 SDG Gender Index by Equal Measures 2030, with an overall score of 69.8 just after Malaysia and Thailand. THE MANILA GALLEON. For two and a half centuries, Spanish trading ships sailed between Acapulco and Manila that brought cargoes of luxury items such as tobacco, spices, and porcelain to the Americas. During the Spanish empire, priests and missionaries were mobile. And also aboard the galleons were deportees, prisoners, exiles, and among other undesirables from the colonies; making a diverse variety of crewmen traveling between Spain, Peru, and the Philippines. THE BATTLE OF TRES DE ABRIL. In March 1898, Filipino revolutionary leader Lt.-Gen. Pantaleón "León Kilat" Villegas agreed to revolt against the Spaniards with the Cebuano Katipuneros (KKK); plotted on April 10th, an Easter Sunday. After the Spaniards caught wind of the scheduled rebellion, armed with bolos (machete) and some guns, 6,000 revolutionists fought a week earlier on Palm Sunday, April 3rd, and won; now known as the 'Battle of Tres de Abril'.

"Marcos, Martial Law, EDSA, and the Tasaday Tribe" BLAST FROM THE PAST (feat. Amiel "Cortz" Cortes) An Excerpt: Season 1, Episode 02, Rated-PG13 "Lay Back" | Music by Brian Withycombe SPONSORED BY: Studio Historias, Broadcasting & Multimedia Productions www.show.studiohistorias.com As Told By PekPek, Mug Collections by @alpheccaperpetua www.instagram.com/AsToldByPekPek AMIEL "Cortz" CORTES is a Cebu-based Historical Researcher & Consultant.

The PEOPLE POWER REVOLUTION (also known as the "EDSA Revolution") was a series of nonviolent political demonstrations in February 1986 as a civil resistance campaign against violence and electoral fraud under the 21-year Marcos regime. EDSA is a limited-access, circumferential highway in the Philippines. It is an acronym for "Epifanio de los Santos Avenue," and is considered as the longest and most congested highway in Metro Manila; stretching at about 23.8 km in length. FERDINAND EMMANUEL EDRALIN MARCOS SR was the 10th and 11th president of the Philippines, as well as the 3rd Prime Minister, from 1965 to 1986. He ruled under Martial Law from 1972 until 1981, but retained powers as the country's dictator until the People Power/EDSA Revolution in 1986. The TASADAY TRIBE is a controversial indigenous group living in the Lake Sebu area in Mindanao, Philippines, and are considered to belong to the Lumad group, the Austronesian indigenous peoples in the southern part of the country. The controversy started in 1971 when Manuel Elizalde Jr of the Presidential Assistant on National Minorities (PANAMIN)—a former Philippine government agency created to protect the interests of indigenous peoples—initially reported to the Smithsonian Institution to inform the world of an isolated group of primitive hunter-gatherers living in caves. The report garnered so much global attention that it attracted various specialists, professionals, and scientists to conduct preliminary investigative and academic work. In 1972, the Marcos administration then established a 19,000-hectare rainforest reservation that surrounded the caves of the Tasaday tribe. Two years later, visitors were then required to obtain special permits; therefore, prohibiting further interaction. In the aftermath of the EDSA Revolution in 1986, Swiss anthropologist and journalist Oswald Iten, among others, debunked the existence of the "Stone Age" cave dwellers when Tasaday tribesmen confessed that they were, in fact, a mixed group of Manobos and Tbolis lumads who acted as cave-dwelling, stone-tool using primitives in exchange for land and money as promised by PANAMIN.

It sets forth a broad range of policy options for accelerated action by policymakers as well as international forums for policy and investment decision-making. Eleven thematic chapters look at how policies can support the development and adoption of “disruptive” technologies by creating an enabling environment for climate change–related financing, innovation uptake, and integrated governance of natural resources. The chapters also examine the impacts of climate change and related policies on the most vulnerable, considering how to promote healthy, sustainable diets and increase benefits for all from food systems. Six regional chapters discuss the diverse impacts of climate change in different parts of the world and identify potential responses that can be taken up in the short and medium term in national and regional food systems. Join us at the global virtual launch event where speakers will highlight key findings in the 2022 report.

Learn about the different types of Alzheimer's research studies, what's involved in participating, and how you can get involved. Suzanne Newman joins Dr. Cherian Verghese, Principal Researcher at the forefront of Alzheimer's disease at Keystone Clinical Studies LLC in the Philadelphia area. It's hard to ask for help, and we face denial, not wanting to bother family, and pride issues. When we face cancer or heart disease, we think our bodies are failing. When it comes to something in our minds, we think we are failing, as something personal, but our mind sits within our brain, and these are illnesses, just like cancer or COVID. In the old days, there was a sense of learned helplessness — I can't do anything about it, so why bother? — but that's not the case any more. Everyone knows the symptoms of a stroke or heart attack or cancer, and now COVID, but not many know the symptoms of Alzheimers, particularly early symptoms. We're not talking about everyday things, but perhaps you notice that your loved one is not as sharp as they used to be, and they have a subjective feeling that it takes more effort, as if the senior moments are getting worse. If they have trouble following the plot of a TV show, or don't realize when they've already seen a movie, look for a clinical trial near you. Clinicaltrials.gov has a list, usually focused in the bigger cities. Participating in a research study provides an opportunity for better treatment than treatments that are currently available: access to the finest medical care, with professionals who know more about the disease than a regular doctor, the cream of the crop in doctors. There's no magic bullet in treatment — think of the various treatments available for diabetes. Different illnesses require different approaches. Alzheimer's is complicated, and researchers at Keystone are studying medicines that treat different stages of the disease. There are studies for prevention, studies for early stages of mild cognitive impairment, and the Athira study for those in the early stages of Alzheimer's dementia. There are medicines for neural regeneration, for amyloid removal, for tau tangle removal If you know of someone with Alzheimer's, there's probably a trial available for them. For those interested in a trial, visit Lift-AD Clinical Trial to learn more. You can learn more about Keystone by calling 610-277-8073 or visiting Keystone Clinical Studies LLC.

Suzanne Newman joins Dr. Cherian Verghese, Principal Researcher at the forefront of Alzheimer's disease at Keystone Clinical Studies LLC in the Philadelphia area. This segment focuses on types of clinical trials and what's involved in participating. In the phase of informed consent, participants and trial partners are appraised on details about the medicine, that it's voluntary, outlines potential side effects, not charged to insurance, that participants can withdraw at any time, and that they can also talk to the ethics committee at any time. A trial partner spends time with the participant, a family member, friend, or neighbor — conducting the study needs someone who can tell us about how the participant functions at home with their activities of daily living. There are prevention trials, for people who have beta-amyloid proteins in their brains but show no symptoms, which are to remove the amyloids and counteract them. The most important area of research is for those with mild short-term memory problems, people who repeat the same story, forget mundane everyday things, and rely on a cell phone for reminders. Athira Pharma's study, for those with mild to moderate Alzheimer's, is for a drug that's intended to help regenerate the brain, deal with the damage that's already being done.

Dr. Verghese is Principal Researcher at Keystone Clinical Studies LLC in the Philadelphia area. This segment continues the conversation about how the disease progresses. In earlier stages, people can be helped at home with assisted living, with family support. Going into moderate or severe dementia, we'd need in-home care and at some stages institutional care. It's physically demanding to help someone with their activities of daily living. Sadly, African Americans are twice as likely, and Latinos about one and a half times as likely, than in Caucasians. They are disproportionately affected, but participation was lower in trials, making it hard to extrapolate drug trial results.

"What's NOT New."Larry Wilson Live with Gary Higbee, EMBA CSPGary is the CEO of Higbee & Associates, Executive Advisor SafeStart, and Principal Researcher & Forensic Investigator at North American Management Institute.“Everybody wants something new” he just shook his head, “I was doing that 40 years ago. I can't believe they're saying this is a new approach”. He was talking about a session he'd just attended on preventing serious injuries.“So what else isn't new?” I asked, and he started to list them off.“Pushing decision-making down to the shop floor - the Japanese have been doing that for decades”. That was the first one. But then there was another and another until finally I said, “Gary, we need to have you on the show. Because I can't imagine that any young safety professionals know any of this. And I wouldn't be surprised if the same thing was also true for a lot of seasoned safety professionals.”Gary was kind enough to say yes.Gary is a Certified Safety Professional with an MBA from the University of Iowa. He worked 32 years for John Deere in safety, environmental, production and engineering. Gary has earned numerous awards, like the 2010 Distinguished Service to Safety Award by the National Safety Council.

Over the past decade, several States have begun to develop military cyber elements capable of both defending their national interests, as well as projecting their national power, by capitalizing on a vast, borderless, interwoven internet.  By applying lessons learned from recent history, a clear case emerges for governments to assess the risk of civilian harm resulting from current cyber operations; and to evaluate how to minimize these risks as we move toward a future characterized by the proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and the emergence of artificial intelligence.  In this post, part of the ICRC's series on avoiding civilian harm during military cyber operations, Pete Renals, a Principal Researcher within the Cybersecurity Industry and a Technology Fellow with the Tech, Law, & Security Program at American University, Washington College of Law – considers future developments in military cyber operations and their impact on the risk of civilian harm.

In this episode of our Money Reimagined podcast, Sheila Warren and Michael Casey speak with two outside-the-box thinkers on their ideas for improving governance. Quadratic Voting and Open AuctionsOne of our guests was Glen Weyl, the political economist and Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research New England, who co-authored the book “Radical Markets” with University of Chicago Law School professor Eric Posner. We chose to focus on just two of the many ideas that that book puts forward. One is quadratic voting, which allows people not only to vote for or against a particular issue but to express how strongly they hold that view by buying extra votes – up to a certain limit of assigned credits. The cost in credits of each additional vote increases by a quadratic formula. It's designed to help small groups of voters who care deeply about particular issues while still constraining them from overly skewing results.Weyl has also worked on a variation of the concept with Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin called quadratic funding, which in theory could diminish the influence of wealthy “whales” in voting systems that are based on financial holdings or contributions. The second big idea we explored is that of perpetual open auctions. Here, every bit of property, including what we might otherwise think of as public property, is owned by private entities with the proviso that it is always up for auction and that the majority of the value created from it is shared equally among citizens as a social dividend. Weyl and Posner argue that such an arrangement would incentivize owners to manage the property well, and that the wider distribution of wealth creation would give a greater number of people the wherewithal to start businesses. It would also be easier to develop land for infrastructure, such as high-speed rail lines, because the developer could easily acquire it. Both of these ideas are rooted more in legal and process innovation than in software and distributed computing per se. But they intersect nicely with concepts associated with the crypto and blockchain space. One is the potential for self-sovereign identity models to prevent people from gaming quadratic voting. Another is the potential enhancements that smart contracts, non-fungible token-based property, and decentralized finance (DeFi) concepts such as automated market-making might bring to open auctions. Also, quadratic funding might fix free-rider problems in blockchain projects, Buterin believes. Smart taxationOur other guest was Jeff Saviano, the global lead of tax innovation at EY. He is a member of the Prosperity Collaborative, within which organizations such as the World Bank, MIT Media Lab's Connection Sciences lab and the New America Foundation are working with governments to improve transparency and efficiency in the collection and distribution of taxes. Saviano talks of how blockchain-based tracing systems might not only give taxpayers a transparent view of how their taxes are being spent but also incorporate programmability. For example, the actual, uniquely identified dollars that you contribute could be channeled directly and transparently into identifiable services that immediately benefit you and your community. Or, governments could use smart contracts to put hard constraints on those dollars, so only certain categories of expenditure, and not others, are enabled.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
