We are reviewing and straightening out some misperceptions about Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF), a program that allows for the forgiveness of specific federal student loans in exchange for 10 years of public service in a federal, state or local government, or in select nonprofits. The PSLF program has the potential to save borrowers countless thousands of dollars. But there has been a great deal of confusion about and misinterpretation of Department of Education program guidelines by organizations and lending officials alike. That has resulted in many Peace Corps Volunteers being told incorrect information regarding their participation. This has, sadly, resulted in many RPCVs not receiving credit for their Peace Corps service towards the tenure required to receive the remainder of their loans forgiven.Our featured RPCV guests speak about their own experiences with the PSLF program, sharing what they've learned along the way, and explaining some of the recent changes Department of Education has issued that may help RPCVs gain credit for their past service after all. Links and resources mentioned in the podcast:Facebook group: Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program Support (PSLF) | FacebookFacebook group: RPCVs for PSLF Relief | FacebookWaiver fact sheet: Fact Sheet: Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program Overhaul | U.S. Department of EducationForbes article: Student Loan Forgiveness Changes and Who QualifiesSpecial Guests:Katie McSheffrey, RPCV Azerbaijan 2009–11, is currently the Chief of Staff in the Office of Human Capital for the Department of the Interior. Prior to her current position, she was the Government Affairs Officer and Public Service Engagement Lead with the National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service. Katie also worked for Peace Corps Headquarters in multiple roles, including Special Assistant to the Deputy Director. She has a comprehensive understanding of Public Service Loan Forgiveness, based on her own experience with it, and is committed to guiding others through the complexities of the program.Sarah Kilchevskyi, RPCV Ukraine (2006–08), is also a former Peace Corps Fellow at Columbia University Teachers College. She has worked for the Social Security Administration for over a decade and holds the title of Technical Expert for her local office. Sarah has become a staunch advocate for PSLF reform based on her own challenging experience maneuvering the program and misinformation surrounding it.Sarah has advocated extensively on the congressional side of this issue and is leading efforts to organize RPCVs around understanding and advocating for needed changes in the rollout of the program to ensure RPCVs can benefit fully from the program. Please note that Sarah Kilchevskyi participates in this podcast in a personal capacity, and her views do not represent the views of any agency or organization.
In the 1930s, in the midst of the Great Depression, the Home Owners Loan Corporation (HOLC) was created to protect households from foreclosure and in some cases repurchase homes they'd already lost. As a part of its efforts, HOLC created “residential security maps” to categorize neighborhoods by lending risk, with low-risk neighborhoods shaded in green and blue, and high-risk neighborhoods colored in yellow and red. These infamous maps are where we get the familiar term, “redlining,” and they helped institutionalize America's racialized housing market. Professor Jacob Faber, Associate Professor at New York University's Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service, joins us to discuss his fascinating new research into HOLC's influence on racial segregation in the cities where it operated, and the persistence of its effects nearly 100 years after the agency was created.

She has appeared on numerous national and international media outlets, including Fox News and NPR. Audrey grew up in Utah, is the mother of three daughters, and lives in Rockland, California. She's served in many capacities in the Church, including as Primary president, in the Young Womens presidency, and in lots of teaching callings. Rachelle Price serves on the Project Elect Board of Directors and is a small business owner and mother of five. After being unanimously appointed to her local school district board of education in 2019, she was elected in 2020 to a four year term as school board trustee and is currently serving as the vice president.

Rachelle currently serves as the stake communication assistant director. In this podcast, Rachelle and Audrey help us understand why it is important for women to run for office and get involved in their communities. Rachelle Price Audrey Perry Martin Highlights 3:30 Project Elect is a non partisan and non-profit organization. Their mission is to help more Latter-day Saint women get elected in public service. 4:20 Reasons why women should run: They are asked to by their leaders Because their communities need them 8:15 Women can use the skills that they use in their church callings to help contribute to their communities. 11:45 Project Elect helps support, encourage, and train Latter-day Saint women to help them run for office. 16:00 How can a bishop help? 21:40 Should women who are elected also have a calling? 23:30 Community service is a great opportunity for those who have been released from a calling and still want to get involved. 25:00 How can women find somewhere to serve? Each community is different and you have to get out and find opportunities. We have to step up as individuals even when we are unsure of what to do. 28:30 Everyone is busy but you can find small ways to serve. 29:45 There are seasons in a woman's life. Some seasons you will have more time than others. Do what you can in the season that you are in. 31:30 Many are concerned about the time it will take away from their families to serve in their communities. However, you can actually include your family in what you are doing. By serving and speaking up in your community you are teaching your children to do the same. Lead by example. 36:40 We need bridge builders and peacemakers in a time of contention and drama. Latter-day Saint women know how to lead by lifting up others.

MEMORIES OF MONTSERRAT by Dr. Irene S. ProspereDr. Irene S. Prospere has written a beautiful anthology of endemic colloquialisms from the perspective of one versed in the wit and nuances of the island people of Montserrat. Every syllable is heavily laced with the lilt and sharpness of a happy and carefree people, rich with the mixture of Irish brogue and colonial English.She conjures the sweet memories of her home and of days past, growing up with her siblings, cousins, and friends in her beloved village of Collins Ghaut in St. Johns, Montserrat. Walking barefoot to and from school and getting up before the sun to do all her chores are fond memories of a time long gone. The characters in her stories are family, her mother and father, her brothers Wellington, Daniel, Stanley, Clyde, and Everton and her sisters Mildred, Inez and Elizabeth (affectionately called Babylyn).Her main purpose in putting pen to paper is to capture all the memories, telling stories she heard of people she used to know and her many treasured friends, so that someday future generations can read Memories of Montserrat and never forget that the most important things in life are not riches or fame but family.Dr. Irene S. Prospere, née Allen was born on September 13, 1944, at St Johns in the Parish of St. Peter, in the Island of Montserrat, West Indies. Irene Allen attended St John's Elementary School, which was at the time held in St. John's Anglican Church where her family worshipped.

She then served in the Royal Montserrat Police Service from 1970 to 1980 and was promoted to the rank of Corporal in 1978. She emigrated to the United States of America, entered Roxbury Community College, and obtained her GED in 1981. Irene obtained employment at the State of Massachusetts Department of Highway and Motor Vehicles where she was responsible for keeping and updating records of suspended driver's licenses.In 1982, Irene entered the Deaconess Hospital where she worked during training, eventually obtaining her Nursing Assistant Certificate.

Between 1997 and 2000, Irene studied at Troy State University where she received a master's degree in counseling and psychology. During this period, Irene worked for Deveraux as a mental health counselor, and from 2000 to 2005 for Intervention Services as a mental health therapist.In 2000, Irene enrolled in United Bible College and Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida, where she obtained a Doctorate in Christian Counselling in 2004. In 2002, Dr. Prospere started her own business under the name Irene's Christian Academy, Inc. where she provides daycare services for infants and children through kindergarten and regular school education for children from kindergarten through twelfth grade.She has published three books: Jesus, the Ultimate Counselor, Memories of Montserrat, and Playing In The Rain.Memories of Montserrat - Kindle edition by Prospere, Dr. Irene S..

With a week to go until Rishi Sunak sets out his multi-year spending review, the chancellor faces difficult decisions about how to fund public services. The pandemic has hit services hard. Children have lost hours of learning, waiting times for court cases are longer, and a backlog for operations has built up. So what spending choices must Sunak make? What is the pandemic's impact on spending, staff, and service performance? And where might pressures intensify in the next three years?

James Russell's The Labor Guide to Retirement Plans: For Union Organizers and Employees (NYU Press, 2021) is a helpful how-to for workers navigating their retirement and pension options, from the labor organizer's perspective. Researching retirement plans should not take the rest of your life, even if deciphering the relevant paperwork seems to have become a full-time job. Deliberately elaborate legalese is obscuring the efforts of financial elites to seize control of workers' collective retirement savings—and The Labor Guide to Retirement Plans is here to translate. This nuts-and-bolts book provides a much-needed demystification of the retirement system. Even more than that The Labor Guide to Retirement Plans enables us to take charge of our own personal futures, as a first step towards taking back what belongs to us all. Stephen Pimpare is director of the Public Service & Nonprofit Leadership program and Faculty Fellow at the Carsey School of Public Policy at the University of New Hampshire.

Candice Beuttenmuller co-owns TJ's Alignment and Repair in WaKeeney, KS with her husband, Jesse. Together they not only own but operate the full-service repair shop, with Candice on the front counter service writing, and Jesse in the bays turning wrenches. To make it truly a family affair, their 2 boys, Odin, 10, and Ezra, 5, help in the shop daily with keeping washer fluid jugs full, greeting customers, and starring on the business Facebook page in their Friday Funny videos. Candice's family is originally from rural western Kansas where TJ's Alignment and Repair is located. The Beuttenmuller's purchased the existing shop in April 2017. While Jesse had the mechanical background for working on vehicles, Candice admits the most experience she had with vehicles before they purchased the shop, was checking her the oil in her own vehicle and changing a flat tire. Candice had experience in the service industry as a waitress but never dreamed that experience would transform into owning a repair shop. Rick White, President and Lead Coach for 180BIZ, an auto repair shop training and business coaching company. He also owned and managed several successful automotive repair shops. Early in his career, Rick got his arm stuck under a vehicle while working underneath it. He managed to get out safely but it was a wake up call to him and for all of us as well. This is everyone's concern. There are too many distractions like cell phones, tablets, lackadaisical attitude of it never happening, not focused on job at task, talking to tech next to them and a whole lot more. We need to follow lift maintenance schedules religiously and document every procedure in order to check work properly. Rick White's Previous Episodes https://remarkableresults.biz/?s=%22rick+white%22 (HERE). Key Talking Points What is anxiety? It is a whole spectrum. Anxiousness can be positive, happy, and excited. Anxiety can have a negative outlook and be a chemical imbalance. Anxiety can be isolation which can lead to depression. Brain function- to keep you alive, conserve energy. Hardwired to look for threats. What causes it? A lot of it is self-induced. It's a focus issue and something we create. Don't fear stack, live in the present. Don't let your needs affect your team. Everyone deals with anxiety every day, most don't call it anxiety- “being in the weeds.” Future tripping and catastrophizing- helps cope and squash the anxiety. Be aware of the mental and physical pains of your team- noticing and addressing immediately to help change their mindset instead of waiting and losing production. Open communication with the entire team. Be empathetic and intuitive. Everyone is an iceberg. Be a resource for your team. Every time you say yes you are saying no to someone else- help and serve your customers in a healthy way. CIA- what can you do during an anxiety event. Control, influence, acceptance Reach out for support- coach, network peers, and other people that are in similar situations to change your mindset....

In Hungary, France and Spain, new political movements from the far-right are attempting to reshape their education systems. Under the supportive eye of Prime Minister Viktor Orban, the recently established National University of Public Service seeks to embed nationalist illiberal values in a new generation of Hungarian students. Meanwhile in France and Spain, far-right public figure Marion Maréchal has turned away from the electoral politics of the Front Nationale to set up a new conservative research institute, ISSEP. Both of these developments represent a challenge to the liberal values which underpin the existing international order. To find out more, Ben spoke with Professor Dorit Geva from the Central European University and Dr Felipe Santos from City, University of London, whose recent article in the Chatham House journal International Affairs considers the implications of this illiberal educational turn.

In this special edition of "Technically Human," we feature a live public conversation about the future of democracy, technology, and public policy. In 2017, Yaël Eisenstat came onboard Facebook to change it, joining the company as its Global Head of Elections Integrity Operations. What she discovered while working there alarmed her. She started speaking out, becoming a leading critic of tech's threat to democracy.In this conversation, I sit down with Yaël in front of a live audience to ask: How can American Democracy persevere in the age of social media? Why does tech need regulation? Who can reign in Big Tech? What can we do to help? Yaël Eisenstat works at the intersection of tech, democracy, and policy, with a focus on what the public square and open, democratic debate look like in the digital world. She works as a Future of Democracy Fellow at Berggruen Institute and a policy advisor to start-ups, governments, and investors looking to align technology to better serve the public. She has spent 20 years working around the globe on democracy and security issues as a CIA officer, a White House advisor, the Global Head of Elections Integrity Operations for political advertising at Facebook, a diplomat, and the head of a global risk firm. She was a Researcher-in-Residence at Betalab in 2020-21 and a Visiting Fellow at Cornell Tech's Digital Life Initiative in 2019-2020, where she focused on technology's effects on discourse and democracy and taught a multi-university course on Tech, Media and Democracy. Yaël Eisenstat has become a key voice and public advocate for transparency and accountability in tech, particularly where real-world-consequences affect democracy and societies around the world. Her recent TED talk addresses these issues and proposes ideas for how government and society should hold the companies accountable. In 2017, she was named in Forbes' list of “40 Women to Watch Over 40”. She is also an Adjunct Professor at NYU's Center for Global Affairs, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and she provides context and analysis on social media, elections integrity, political and foreign affairs in the media.

Zack and Melanie are joined by Adam Mount, senior fellow at the Federation of American Scientists, to discuss the AUKUS security agreement between Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom. What does the pact say about these countries' assessment of the influence and ambition of China in the Indo-Pacific? France, which had an agreement to provide Australia with conventionally-powered submarines, was dropped in favor of the United States and United Kingdom helping Australia to develop nuclear-propelled submarines. Can AUKUS members repair their relationships with France? The deal provides a framework for cooperation between the countries on sharing information related to cyber, AI, quantum computing, and other technology. How might this arrangement affect national security as well as societies in the coming decades? Finally, should we be concerned about proliferation? Zack wishes the administration would be more forthright about how it worked to secure the return of hostages from China, Adam is unhappy with the departure of an important voice on nuclear issues from the Pentagon, and Melanie is happy it's finally autumn!

After 9/11, investigators concluded one of the factors that put America at risk was that only 57 percent of nominees for top national security positions had been confirmed by the Congress and were in place. Today, that number is just over 26 percent. Random holds on nominees for indefensibly political reasons are putting this country at risk. The two worst offenders? Senators Cruz and Hawley. We discuss this with expert Loren deJonge Schulman, VP for Research at the Partnership for Public Service as well as AEI's Kori Schake, the FT's Ed Luce and Georgetown Law's Rosa Brooks. We also discuss Kori's and Rosa's prominent opeds on the controversy surrounding General Mark Milley. Plus a little bit about French submarines.
