MSU Today with Russ White
Renowned plant scientist to lead MSU's Plant Resilience Institute

MSU Today with Russ White

Rhee talks about her Michigan roots, and she describes how she “serendipitously” became passionate about plant science. “MSU is one of the best places to do plant research, if not the best. The people and the reputation attracted me." During the interview process, she was impressed with the MSU culture that included a graduate student, a postdoc, and an assistant faculty member on the search committee. "I was really impressed with the early-career scientists. There's a sense of excitement, passion, and interaction at MSU which was all super cool.” Rhee talks about the key issues in plant science. “Understanding how plants work is an important aspect of trying to come up with innovative solutions to many of today's issues. That doesn't mean just growing food better, but we can also think of plants as potential factories for sourcing materials and chemicals. We are entering an era of manufacturing from biology. It's not just plants; microbes would play a big role. Having a better understanding of plants will help in so many ways. They are the biggest part of our ecosystem.” Sue describes the mission of the Plant Resilience Institute she'll lead at MSU. “The mission is to be a premier institute for conducting outstanding plant research, especially in how plants can be resilient against adverse environmental conditions. We study plant resilience from many angles ranging from the ecosystem level down to single molecule molecular level.” Rhee is the founding director of The Arabidopsis Information Resource — one of the most heavily used online resources for plant scientists — and was instrumental in making the Gene Ontology system work for plants.       “It became one of the most popular databases used for research today. It's probably the best-used plant resource today 20 years after its inception. “I think basic science will drive our future economy. A lot of the inventions and technologies we benefit from today have come from basic science. Basic science in plant biology was responsible for the green revolution that ended up saving hundreds of millions of people using tools like breeding. Today, plant scientists are using tools like plant genome engineering to be able to manipulate plants even more precisely. But knowing what to engineer and manipulate is where the basic science comes in. We have to understand how these organisms work and what controls the traits that we want to improve.  “That's where basic science can really triumph. It allows us to understand how things work. And then we can figure out how to invent things. Without knowing how things work, we can't invent. “One of the reasons I'm excited about MSU is because it's a land grant university and there are thriving extension programs. Michigan has a lot of different types of growers, and there's a lot of interesting industry. I'm very excited about plant science, but also about food and environmental justice and learning from my new MSU colleagues.” MSU Today airs Saturdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 5 a.m. on WKAR News/Talk and Sundays at 8 p.m. on 760 WJR.

Hill talks about what motivated her to write the book and why now was the time to do it. She describes how therapy helped her attain a “better and deeper understanding” of who she is.  “I wasn't unhappy when I began my therapy journey because I don't think you need to be unhappy to go to therapy. Sometimes it's just a good maintenance check. It's for greater understanding of you. I hope when people read the book, they'll see that there's a commonality to all the issues I discuss in my book that should help people as they try to figure out how they want to deal with things.” Hill says she chose to attend MSU “because of its stellar journalism program. I wanted to work at the State News, too. Going to Michigan State really changed my life. I was born and raised in Detroit, but I grew up at Michigan State.” Jemele shares her views on a “very challenging” state of journalism.  “The whole point of journalism is truth. What I see a lot these days is not just the inaccuracies and bad framing, but also an inability to tell the truth by hiding behind objectivity. I know it sounds like objectivity should be a great thing in journalism. Our goal should actually be to be fair, which is different. Sometimes we have to be able to call people out and hold them accountable. That's the whole point of the phrase about journalists being the watchdog of society. The essential core of democracy can only work if there's a free and fair press. The fact that there are outlets that traffic in passing off conspiracy theories as news is very disappointing and all it does is encourage people to not necessarily seek the truth but to seek the truth they want to believe as opposed to what's actually true.” Hill shares her advice for today's journalism students to “focus on the craft. The mechanisms of how we do our jobs will always change. It's stone tablets one day and podcasts the next. But what doesn't change is the core tenets of the job.” Jemele talks about writing on the intersection of sports, race, gender, politics, and culture for The Atlantic. And she shares her views on name, image, and likeness and the transfer portal in the evolving world of college athletics. She previews project she's working on , including a collaboration with Spike Lee.  “I hope people who read Uphill understand that this is a story of resiliency and perseverance. And it's a testament to something I believe in: Your circumstances, no matter how bad, do not have to dictate the life you envision for yourself.” MSU Today airs Saturdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 5 a.m. on WKAR News/Talk and Sundays at 8 p.m. on 760 WJR.

Well-being. Recent research has revealed that this often-overlooked, yet essential element is a core value of personal growth and sustainable success. Somatic coherence is an evidence-based framework that dramatically changes how we manage our day-to-day stress - it's also a necessary piece of our well-being puzzle. We receive regular emotional signals from the soma - meaning of the body. Emotion is the word we give to a synergy of experiences, both somatic and cognitive that form how we feel in response to the world. Everyone can benefit from learning how to become better in touch with the rhythm of their nervous system, especially those who have experienced chronic stress or trauma. This integral element of our overall well-being is frequently seen as essential in nature to all humans. So, just how and why might somatic coherence matter concerning your continued well-being and success? As we revisit our most valuable episodes in our year-end review, this one was a home run for our listeners.

Dany and Arstan Whitebeard are aghast at the terrible training process the Unsullied must endure. She decides to think on whether she wants to purchase the slaves to create an army for herself.On her way back to the ships, Dany thinks of Jorah's kiss and how inappropriate it was. However, as much as she found it unwanted, the kiss has stirred something within her she thought died with Drogo. When she and Arstan arrive at the ships, she lashes out at Jorah, punctuating her feelings with a slap across his face.Later that evening, she confides to Jorah that the act of buying a slave army doesn't feel in-line with what her brother Rhaegar would've done. Rhaegar had free men fighting for him. Jorah confirms that Rhaegar did have free, noble, and brave men. However, it all amounted to nothing, as Rhaegar lost the war and the Iron Throne.

Tony-winning writer and performer, Sarah Jones, is making her directorial debut when her new film Sell/Buy/Date which Cinedigm will be releasing in theaters in LA on October 14th, NYC on October 21st, and streaming in November on Amazon Prime. The wide release announcement exclusive is out with Variety here. The deeply personal film is a witty documentary / narrative hybrid following Jones and her multicultural characters (she plays 5 characters in the film!) on a journey exploring our relationship to the sex industry via Sarah's hilarious comedy and social justice lens. Sell/Buy/Date is written, and directed by Sarah Jones, and is executive produced by Meryl Streep with appearances by Ilana Glazer and Bryan Cranston.  “I want the whole world to know about Sarah Jones. I think she's an extraordinary artist--a once in a lifetime artist,” said Meryl Streep.  Sell/Buy/Date has seen various iterations over the past six years, first starting as Sarah's off-Broadway one-woman show in 2016, which she then remounted in Los Angeles in 2018. At the start of the pandemic lockdown in 2020, she brought some of her stage characters to life on social media for her #yesimsarahjones IG Live Show to ignite conversation around the black lives matter movement. And now, Jones is ready to debut her Sell/Buy/Date feature film. In the past Sarah and the live version of the show received feature coverage in Vogue and Vogue.com, The Economist, The New York Times, Town & Country, WMag.com and much more.   About Sarah Jones: Called “a master of the genre” by The New York Times, Sarah Jones is a Tony® Award-winning solo performer, writer, comedian and activist. She recently made her debut as a film director with the hybrid documentary Sell/Buy/Date, in which she also stars. The film, which is executive produced by Oscar-winner Meryl Streep, world premiered at the SXSW Film Festival and will be distributed (theatrical and streaming) by Cinedigm this fall. Jones is mainly known for her multi-character one-person shows, including Broadway hit Bridge & Tunnel, also originally produced by Streep, and the critically-acclaimed play Sell/Buy/Date, which inspired the film. She has also appeared in various film and TV projects, including co-starring (along with Elisabeth Shue, Giovanni Ribisi, and Julie Delpy) in the Netflix series, On the Verge; Noah Baumbach's Oscar® nominated film Marriage Story opposite Scarlett Johansson, and on the final season of Broad City. Jones also appeared in Chris Rock's Good Hair documentary, and, at the request of Vogue and Anna Wintour, co-created and starred in a short film with designers Tommy Hilfiger, Donna Karan, Zac Posen, Diane Von Furstenberg and Vera Wang, directed by Fisher Stevens for the CFDA Awards. Additionally, Jones' writing credits include the Golden-Globe nominated Showtime series SMILF. Renowned as “a one-woman global village,” she has also given multiple main-stage TED Talks garnering millions of views, performed for President and First Lady Obama at the White House, and given a performance at The World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland as the first artist on its stage normally reserved for heads of state. She has also been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, raising awareness of gender, ethnic, racial, and economic injustice and disparities, including in the United States. Jones recently launched Foment Productions, a social justice-focused entertainment company aligned with her progressive activism, with Sell/Buy/Date as its first production. The film tackles the intersection of race, gender justice, the economy, and various other issues through the unexpected lens of the sex industry. Using humor, investigative interviews, celebrity cameos (including Rosario Dawson, Ilana Glazer, and Bryan Cranston) and her own personal story, the film highlights how this topic is closer and more relevant to all of our lives than we may realize.

Have you ever asked yourself the question, “What's my purpose?” or maybe even “Do I have a purpose?” So many people desparately seek answers to those very common questions. But to the person listening who has maybe asked those questions, I have a good news for you, because in and throughout today's episode, our Built Different Guest takes us on a journey as to how we can find, identify, and develop the purpose that God has called us to. Joining us today on the podcast is world renowned life coach, best-selling author, positive psychology expert, motivational speaker, and founder of the Coaching and Positive Psychology Institue, Valorie Burton! Valorie has devoted her life to helping others become happier, healthier, and more resilient. Her goal is to help you close the gap between where you are and where you REALLY want to be. In doing so, one of the first steps is identifying your purpose or calling in this life. Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.” Thankfully, in today's episode Valorie gives us very practical tools such as reshaping our perspective, practicing the act of gratitude, and reframing our self-talk or questions we may be asking ourselves. Ultimately, this episode will help remind you that when it comes to resilience and purpose, not only do you have these traits, but you also have the ability to build them!

How do we raise kids who love Christ? Renowned author and speaker Lisa Bevere knows what it's like to feel disqualified because of past mistakes. Though Lisa and her husband, John of Messenger International, are known all over the world now, Lisa grew up in a home where she was shunned, cut off, and mocked after becoming a Christian in college. On this episode of Unapologetic Lisa speaks openly about what life was like before she met Christ, how she told her sons about her past, and how she and her husband raised their four adult sons to walk with and love the Lord. Julia and Lisa also discuss: how and when to share your past experiences with your kids, practical ways to raise kids to love Christ, and navigating relationships if you're the first, or only, Christian in your family. “I think it was important that my sons heard not just regret, but redemption in my story.” —Lisa Bevere Lisa's newest book, Fiercely Loved, is available now!

What can a French translator do with a novelist who writes brilliantly about the “confrontation between Englishes?” How can such a confrontation be made legible across the boundaries of language, nation, and history? Renowned scholar and translator Brent Hayes Edwards sits down with publisher and translator Jean-Baptiste Naudy to consider these questions in a wide-ranging discussion about translating the Jamaican American writer Claude McKay. They focus especially on the recent translation into French of McKay's 1941 Amiable with Big Teeth, which paints a satirical portrait of efforts by 1930s Harlem intelligentsia to organize support for the liberation of fascist-controlled Ethiopia. Brent and Jean-Baptiste consider McKay's lasting legacy and ongoing revival in the U.S. and France. Translating McKay into French, they note, is a matter of reckoning with France's own imperial history. That history, along with McKay's complex understanding of race both in the U.S. and abroad, is illuminated in this conversation about one of the Harlem Renaissance's most celebrated writers.

Supporting free speech is easy if the speech is something you agree with. But it's often hard to not be hypocritical about it if the speech in question is something you disagree with. Renowned free speech advocate Tony Brasunas believes that to truly advocate free speech, we need to support it in principle. And that means giving space to ideas that we may not agree with, even those that we perceive can be harmful to society in some way, because the alternative is more insidious. Tony solidified his views on this issue following a personal experience of censorship in 2016. Since then, he has been an outspoken critic of media gatekeeping and censorship and a staunch advocate for free speech, alternative media, and media consciousness.

#376. Onne van der Wal is one of the world's foremost yachting photographers, but he started his career as a vagabond sailor. Growing up in South Africa, Onne rarely went to school and instead hitched rides on whatever racing boats he could, amassing a storied career and finding a home on the high seas. His racing career peaked with his involvement in the second FLYER campaign, where he also first made a name for himself in photography. Andy talked to Onne aboard his Grand Banks motorboat in Annapolis in October to hear his story and philosophy. We were joined by Onne's wife Tenley, Ship's Photographer James Austrums, and Schooner WOODWIND owner & captain, Jen Kaye. -- If you liked this conversation you'll LOVE The QUARTERDECK, 59 North's 'deep dives on the art of seamanship.'

It's a must-read that every person, religious and non-religious, should buy and peruse every night before bed. It'll make you think harder, pray more ardently, and understand your civilization better." — Ben Shapiro, host of "The Ben Shapiro Show" "Dennis Prager's commentary on Exodus will rank among the greatest modern Torah commentaries. That is how important I think it is. And I am clearly not alone... It might well be on its way to becoming the most widely read Torah commentary of our time—and by non-Jews as well as by Jews." — Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, bestselling author of Jewish Literacy Why do so many people think the Bible, the most influential book in world history, is outdated? Why do our friends and neighbors – and sometimes we ourselves – dismiss the Bible as irrelevant, irrational, immoral, or all of these things? This explanation of the Book of Exodus, the second book of the Bible, will demonstrate that the Bible is not only powerfully relevant to today's issues, but completely consistent with rational thought. Do you think the Bible permitted the trans-Atlantic slave trade? You won't after reading this book. Do you struggle to love your parents? If you do, you need this book. Do you doubt the existence of God because belief in God is “irrational?” This book will give you reason after reason to rethink your doubts. The title of this commentary is, “The Rational Bible” because its approach is entirely reason-based. The reader is never asked to accept anything on faith alone. As Prager says, “If something I write does not make rational sense, I have not done my job.” The Rational Bible is the fruit of Dennis Prager's forty years of teaching the Bible to people of every faith, and no faith. On virtually every page, you will discover how the text relates to the contemporary world and to your life. His goal: to change your mind – and then change your life.   Highly Recommended by ACU. Purchase his book at- https://www.amazon.com/Rational-Bible-Exodus-Dennis-Prager/dp/1621577724   The Rational Bible: Genesis by Dennis Prager  USA Today bestseller Publishers Weekly bestseller Wall Street Journal bestseller Many people today think the Bible, the most influential book in world history, is not only outdated but irrelevant, irrational, and even immoral. This explanation of the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible, demonstrates clearly and powerfully that the opposite is true. The Bible remains profoundly relevant—both to the great issues of our day and to each individual life. It is the greatest moral guide and source of wisdom ever written. Do you doubt the existence of God because you think believing in God is irrational? This book will give you many reasons to rethink your doubts. Do you think faith and science are in conflict? You won't after reading this commentary on Genesis. Do you come from a dysfunctional family? It may comfort you to know that every family discussed in Genesis was highly dysfunctional! The title of this commentary is “The Rational Bible” because its approach is entirely reason-based. The reader is never asked to accept anything on faith alone. In Dennis Prager's words, “If something I write is not rational, I have not done my job.” The Rational Bible is the fruit of Dennis Prager's forty years of teaching the Bible—whose Hebrew grammar and vocabulary he has mastered—to people of every faith and no faith at all. On virtually every page, you will discover how the text relates to the contemporary world in general and to you personally. His goal: to change your mind—and, as a result, to change your life.
