Public fights over masks and COVID-19 vaccines seem to be happening more often these days and there's at least some data to back it up. The FAA says the number of unruly passenger incidents is already 2 to 3 times the number from all of 2020. Most of them are over mask-wearing. In retail stores, managers have had to train staff how to deal with screaming customers. And we've probably all felt the tension just talking with friends and family who may disagree with us. Today, we're diving into why this is happening more these days and how to handle it, whether it's on a plane with strangers or around the Thanksgiving table with loved ones. We've brought Dr. Tania Israel back on the show. She's a counseling psychology professor at UC Santa Barbara and the author of the award-winning book “Beyond Your Bubble: How to Connect Across the Political Divide.” Dr. Israel explains how to de-escalate these fiery situations and shares tips for having more productive, caring conversations with people you disagree with. Plus, the words you should never say to another person, especially during a heated exchange.

Not only has the COVID pandemic politicized our country - it has led to a lot of misinformation and a shutdown of communication. For instance, is there really asymptomatic spread of COVID? Or just pre-symptomatic and symptomatic spread? That might seem like splitting hairs but it can have a profound effect on policy for quarantining and testing. We've talked about this before on the show as well as general discussions on COVID policy which can be found here, here, and here. 12 Myths and 12 Facts About COVID-19 If there is one certainty during this confusing pandemic it is that there are plenty of myths circulating in the media and popular culture about COVID. In fact, many of the things we think we know are wrong. Public officials get them wrong. Doctors and nurses get them wrong. The CDC and FDA get them wrong. Unfortunately, once we discover the truth, often the word doesn't get out there widely enough to change behavior, regulations, or rituals. Dan Halperin points these out in his book on 12 common myths and 12 uncommon facts about COVID-19. One great example of this is the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 on surfaces. We have almost no instances of the virus transmitting in this manner and it travels almost exclusively through aerosol means. However, despite this, businesses, individuals, and regulatory agencies still act as if 'deep cleaning' and intense adherence to eliminating surface contamination will help prevent viral transmission. This is patently false but it's been over a year since we have known this and yet we are still wasting our time practicing this type of hygiene. Another example of a myth believed by many is the transfer of viral particles from asymptomatic individuals to uninfected people. There are almost no documented cases of this type of infection yet we treat asymptomatic infection almost as a common vector. It is important to note that there is pre-symptomatic spread but people who never develop any symptoms just aren't infectious. It is also true that you never know if you're about to become symptomatic but we could certainly change the way we approach close contacts if the infected person never develops any symptoms. Is the Current Environment of Scientific Debate Akin to McCarthyism? Not only has Dan Halperin written on the epidemiology of COVID but he has also weighed in on his concerns with the academic and public nature of scientific debate. He notes how one of the creators of the mRNA technology expressed some "strange views" which many did not agree with. But instead of rebutting the researcher's concerns, he was virtually eliminated from history. His contribution to the development of mRNA technology was removed from Wikipedia and he has been eliminated from all common public forums. Dr. Halperin says it feels a little like McCarthyism which happened in the 1950's over concern that the Soviet Union and communists were infiltrating American government and society. At the time, most Americans were in favor of the practice of 'blackballing' people because of the perceived threat of nuclear annihilation from our Cold War adversary. Only through the lens of time can we now look back and find the practice objectionable and he suspects the same will be the case with our current lack of public acceptance of differing opinions on COVID. Daniel Halperin is an epidemiologist and full professor at the University of North Carolina School of Public Health and the author of the book: Facing COVID without Panic: 12 common myths and 12 lesser known facts about the pandemic. show notes Episode 149: Today's show Creeping Censorship in the Name of Public Health: Dr. Halperin's piece in the Real Clear Policy where he discusses the squelching of real discussion in science.

But before he became a Numbers Guy on the left, he was pretty apolitical in a family of conservative Republicans. He became politicized during his time in the military, when he was deployed to Iraq (he became an anti-war, Ron Paul guy). His journey left continued in college, as he began to study economics as a way to engineer society.

Pete Buttigieg has risen from college student to Mayor of Southbend, Indiana and all the way to Secretary of Transportation under the Biden Administration. What was behind his meteoric rise to prominence and power? How did the entire transportation and trade infrastructure of the United States end up in the hands of this relatively young and inexperienced man? Well, Pete Buttigieg's rise is primarily because of his ideology, an ideology that was first formed by his Father. Pete Buttigieg's Father was Joseph Buttigieg, who was considered one of the top scholars in the world in regards to the teachings and theories of Antonio Gramsci: the father of what is known as Cultural Marxism. So when you are wondering what has been guiding Secretary Buttigieg's frame of reference when dealing with our current infrastructure crisis, remember that Gramsci's “transformation of consciousness” influences his decision-making process. https://sovereignnations.com Support Sovereign Nations: https://paypal.me/sovnations https://patreon.com/sovnations Follow Sovereign Nations: https://sovereignnations.com/subscribe https://facebook.com/SovereignNations https://twitter.com/SovNations https://youtube.com/SovereignNations https://instagram.com/sovnations/ https://minds.com/sovnations?referrer=sovnations https://parler.com/profile/sovnations Podcast: https://soundcloud.com/sovereignnations https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-causes-of-things/id1383339158?mt=2 https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cDovL2ZlZWRzLnNvdW5kY2xvdWQuY29tL3VzZXJzL3NvdW5kY2xvdWQ6dXNlcnM6NDQ1NTczODAwL3NvdW5kcy5yc3M https://open.spotify.com/show/3mNCQcQAdawzIYAAuHfy8r https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/sovereign-nations/the-causes-of-things © 2021 Sovereign Nations.

In the final hour, Danny Parkins and Matt Spiegel revisited an important topic from a day prior -- we couldn't end the show without revisiting Spiegs' trash charcuterie board. And then, we shared a bonus theory about objectivity and subjectivity when it comes to what food tastes good and what food tastes bad. Surprisingly enough, executive producer Shane Riordan sounded like an absolute moron. Then, Jon Morosi of Fox Sports and MLB Network joined the show live from Houston to discuss the latest MLB playoff storylines and whether the league has any idea what it's doing when it comes to scheduling games for mass consumption. Also, Portillo's has gone public! What's your order? See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

After new episodes drop, fans of TV shows from The Bachelor to Grey's Anatomy take to social media to dissect what they just saw. And the twittersphere isn't just venting about plot twists and love interests--sometimes there are bigger issues at hand. Dr. Morgan Smalls says that shows like Insecure and Being Mary Jane that feature Black women protagonists and majority Black casts inspire important conversations about race on social media. And: Disney princesses can be a bit of a scapegoat for what's wrong with representations of women in movies. One of the problems: they don't have many healthy female relationships. Jessica Stanley talks about the toxic relationships of wicked stepsisters and evil witches and how modern Disney movies are doing better. Later in the show: Movies and television tell stories about who we are and who we get to be. What does that mean for people who don't find themselves on the screen? Andre Cavalcante explores the history of trans representation in the media and how trans women have subverted the stories so often told about them. Plus: Movies are so much more than entertainment--they shape the way we see the world around us. Even when we don't realize it. Kimberly Brown looks at common stereotypes of Black women in movies and what it means for a casual moviegoer to watch film in an anti-racist way.

A constant refrain from tyrannical DNC Governors and Mayors to ensure that everyone was guilted into staying at home, crushing their small businesses and ensuring that online purchasing was normalized was “you don't want to kill Grandma.” This same refrain was used to justify mask mandates through the election cycle until the semi-working vaccines were introduced. The Biden Administration quickly put a new spin on the “don't kill Grandma” narrative by stating that “if you don't want to kill Grandma, get the vaccine and you won't transmit the virus to her.” Now we know that this was all a farce. So who is now concerned about killing Grandma? What if Grandma has a job? What if Grandma has already had Covid and doesn't want to take the vaccine? Who now is Grandma's enemy? https://sovereignnations.com Support Sovereign Nations: https://paypal.me/sovnations https://patreon.com/sovnations Follow Sovereign Nations: https://sovereignnations.com/subscribe https://facebook.com/SovereignNations https://twitter.com/SovNations https://youtube.com/SovereignNations https://instagram.com/sovnations/ https://minds.com/sovnations?referrer=sovnations https://parler.com/profile/sovnations Podcast: https://soundcloud.com/sovereignnations https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-causes-of-things/id1383339158?mt=2 https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cDovL2ZlZWRzLnNvdW5kY2xvdWQuY29tL3VzZXJzL3NvdW5kY2xvdWQ6dXNlcnM6NDQ1NTczODAwL3NvdW5kcy5yc3M https://open.spotify.com/show/3mNCQcQAdawzIYAAuHfy8r https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/sovereign-nations/the-causes-of-things © 2021 Sovereign Nations.

Foutanga Babani Sissoko, known also as Baba Sora, was one of the most generous patrons of Malian musicians, particularly griots, in modern times. His gifts of cash, gold, cars and houses are legendary, and the amount of music he inspired was voluminous. But the source of all those riches turned out to be dubious, to say the least. And when he died in March 2021, he had spent his latter years a poor man. In this episode we hear the man, the music and the remembrances of those whose lives were changed by his extraordinary generosity. Produced by Banning Eyre. APWW #842
Meet Patrick Nolan Patrick is the Executive Director of Friends of Organ Mountains-Desert Peak. Patrick brings thirteen years of organizing experience and six years with the American Federation of Teachers New Mexico (AFTNM). With AFTNM, Patrick worked with school employees across the state of New Mexico as they advocated for strong public schools. Patrick's work with the American Federation of State and County and Municipal employees took him to several western states, Alaska, Utah, Colorado, and Washington. Public lands play a pivotal role in all of these states and their economies, much as they do in New Mexico. The extensive time working in these states opened Patrick's eyes to the benefit of protecting and advocating for Public Lands. He worked with folks tasked with protecting and maintaining public lands on state, county, and city levels. The love they had for public lands helped Patrick learn the value of public lands. His experience building coalitions across the diverse state of New Mexico will serve him well as we advocate for Public Lands. On the podcast, we discussed: Climate change and the role public lands play in addressing it. Connecting the community to public lands. Challenge of fundraising.

In this solo episode, I talk about patent filing deadlines that are important to tech companies and inventors. There are three important activities that automatically trigger a 12-month deadline in the United States for filing a patent application to protect your invention. In most situations, if you miss this deadline, you forfeit the ability to protect the invention. This often means your competitors can freely use that invention in their products because you can't protect it with a patent. Unfortunately, many business leaders are unaware of this deadline and inadvertently lose patent rights to their inventions. Too often, I've had to tell company leaders, “It's too late to protect your invention.” Listen to this episode so you understand the deadlines and make an informed business decision before forfeiting your patent rights. Today on the Tech Leader Talk podcast: The three activities that trigger a 12-month patent filing deadline: - Public disclosure of the invention - Sale of a product that contains the invention - An offer to sell a product that contains the invention Solution: - Identify all of the three triggering activities. - If the invention is valuable to your business, file a patent application BEFORE the 12 month deadline. Questions? If you have any questions about these deadlines, contact me to schedule a Free Introductory Call so you don't forfeit any critical patent rights. Contact me via email: Steve@SteveSponseller.com Or visit my website: https://www.SteveSponseller.com Thanks for listening!

Most of us have serious thoughts about friendship; but we are apt to take comradeship, fellowship, very casually, and to think it is sufficiently maintained if we meet for parties, games, picnics, or what not. Public school boys generally learn better; they know that comradeship mean much cheerful give-and-take, chaff, help, unsparing criticism; if need be, the taking or giving of serious reproof; loyalty each to each, plucky and faithful leading, staunch following, truth-speaking; the power to see others put first without chagrin, and to bear advancement without conceit. Here, too, are calls for attention, labour, love and reverence; but again, labour is swallowed up in delight.” Charlotte Mason, School Education, Vol. 3

In episode 361, we welcome our guest, Jeff Hooke, Senior Lecturer at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School and author of The Myth of Private Equity, which is what we focus on today. In today's episode, Jeff pulls no punches when sharing his thoughts on the private equity industry. He likens the belief that private equity has outperformed the market to believing the tooth fairy is real and compares their reporting process to an 8-year-old girl rating her own homework. We dive deeper into the lack of transparency around fees and returns and then discuss the recent approval to allow 401(k) plans to include private equity investments and why that goes against what the great John Bogle believed.
