Michael Neiberg is back in the studio for the next installation of the On Writing series. This week's guest is Shashank Joshi, Defense Editor for The Economist. This episode is a slight variation from the normal On Writing discussion because Shashank is a journalist writing a much shorter form than our usual guests, and then there's the little issue of the deadlines associated with a fast-paced news cycle. Their conversation turns to the organization and formulation of an interesting and accessible article, avoiding personal injury when dealing with demanding editors, and what sort of formal and informal research is necessary to build a mental database useful for informing a news-oriented writing format. Editors vary wildly. I can tell you that even good ones they're good in their different ways...But the best ones will say to you, 'What are you trying to say here? Because you know you haven't said it terribly well. But let's find a better way to say it.' Shashank Joshi is The Economist‘s defense editor. Prior to joining The Economist in 2018, he served as Senior Research Fellow at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) and Research Associate at Oxford University's Changing Character of War Program. He has published books on Iran's nuclear program and India's armed forces, written for a wide range of newspapers and journals, and appeared regularly on radio and television. He holds degrees from Cambridge and Harvard, where he served as a Kennedy Scholar from Britain to the United States. The views expressed in this presentation are those of the speakers and do not necessarily reflect those of the U.S. Army War College, U.S. Army, or Department of Defense.

For the Zoom registration link, go to realprogressives.org/rp-events-calendar/Understanding how monetary sovereign governments create and spend money means looking at the Treasury department and the central bank or, in the US, the Federal Reserve.Economist Eric Tymoigne explains two approaches to understanding the relationship: the consolidated and the collaborative, or cooperative, version of the Treasury and the Fed.The consolidated approach merges the Fed and the Treasury into one entity and analyzes the implications of this merger on public finance. It emphasizes that taxes and government securities don't fund the government, but rather, the government spends by crediting accounts. (This comes as no surprise to MMTers.)The consolidated approach also highlights the importance of injecting reserves into the economy before taxes can be collected or government securities can be sold. The coordinated approach recognizes the separate roles of the Treasury and the Fed but emphasizes the extensive coordination between the two entities.Eric walks us through these operations and touches on the relationship with private banking and the role of reserves on the international stage.Listening to this episode, you can't help but conclude that the ways in which the US manages monetary operations are not consistent with budgetary needs. It's hard to see how it has anything to do with provisioning our society.Eric Tymoigne is an Associate Professor of Economics at Lewis & Clark College, Portland, Oregon, and Research Associate at the Levy Economics Institute of Bard College.@tymoignee on Twitter

Two years ago the Taliban swept into Kabul and took control of Afghanistan, almost exactly twenty years after they were ousted by the US-led invasion after 9/11. The West has since deployed sanctions to put pressure on the regime - but to no visible effect, beyond worsening the number of people struggling to afford to eat. As the Taliban have consolidated their control of the country, they have dramatically reversed many of the rights and opportunities Afghan women have enjoyed. Can the world engage with the Taliban while also keeping up the pressure on it to reverse what the UN calls its “gender apartheid”? Is isolation the way to convince a group which craves global recognition that its attitude to women is costing Afghanistan dearly? Shaun Ley is joined by: Michael Keating, Executive Director at the European Institute of Peace, a conflict resolution organisation based in Brussels that works with the European Union and civil society. He is the former UN deputy envoy and humanitarian coordinator for Afghanistan. Orzala Nemat, Afghan scholar and Research Associate at SOAS University, and the former director of the Afghanistan Research and Evaluation Unit (AREU), a think tank in Afghanistan Sahar Fetrat, researcher in the Women's Rights Division at Human Rights Watch. Also featuring: BBC Chief International Correspondent Lyse Doucet Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid Produced by Alba Morgade and Neggeen Sadid.

In late June, while preparing for this episode, there were over 500 wildfires burning across Canada. Smoke from the wildfires was affecting millions of Canadians and Americans across a wide swath of North America with air quality indexes reaching extreme levels. As of the posting of this episode (July 25, 2023), the number of wildfires burning across Canada had grown to over 1000 with 660 classified as “out of control”. Our timing to have a conversation about wildfires with a prominent Canadian scientist could not have been more relevant. In Season 6, Episode 4, host Sarah Thorne is joined by cohost Jeff King, National Lead of the Engineering With Nature Program, US Army Corps of Engineers, and Anabela Bonada, Manager and Research Associate at the Intact Centre for Climate Adaptation at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada. Among other things, Anabela is an expert in forest fires and has been actively involved developing a user-friendly guide for residents to simplify the recommendations in Canada's National Wildfire Guide. Canada's wildfire season started early this year. Anabela puts the current situation into context: “The Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Center reports that [as of July 5] over 85,000 square kilometers, or almost 33,000 square miles have been burned so far. This is equivalent to a little bit more than New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, in Canada, combined or a little bit bigger than South Carolina in the US. This is already the worst wildfire season on record for Canada.” She notes that with climate change, drier and warmer seasons are expected going forward in Canada and the US, particularly in an El Niño year. “For North America, it means that we're going to see drier, warmer climate in the West and Northwest, areas that are usually wildfire prone, and parts of Canada. The expectation is more wildfires—in size and intensity.”There's a lot of work underway in Canada to raise awareness about wildfires and to make communities more resilient. The Intact Centre, in collaboration with FireSmart Canada, has developed easy to follow guidance for homeowners and for communities to get ahead of wildfire risks. As Anabela notes, “There are things that you can do around your home, from simple, moving any combustible material 10 meters (about 33 feet) away from your home, to more complex, like considering a Class A roof that is resistant to wildfire.”Anabela goes on to note that a more nature-based solution is to focus on changing the natural drivers that lead to extreme wildfires rather than fighting the fires after they have started. “So, our focus needs to shift from suppression to prevention as we consider nature-based solutions to wildfire.” Anabela's call to action with regards to wildfires is, “We need to take action, now—all the way from policymakers right down to every individual.”Jeff agrees and adds: “I am thinking about collaboration and the fact that wildfires really don't respect borders. What can we be doing now and in the future? I want to think about what kind of collaborative research is needed and how we pursue that—including how natural infrastructure and nature-based solutions can be used in advance of a wildfire event but also following wildfire events.” For more information and resource links, please visit the EWN Podcast page on the EWN website at https://www.engineeringwithnature.org/ • Jeff King at LinkedIn• Anabela Bonada at LinkedInThis show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5872676/advertisement

Many of us know that tree rings can tell us how old a tree is. But there's so much more we can learn from these seemingly simple lines. In the mid 1800's, right before the start of the U.S. Civil War, North America began to experience unusually low rainfall that lasted approximately 10 years. This drought, on par with the Dust Bowl of the 1930's, may have played a role in the near extinction of the American Bison due to the migration of people to areas that were lusher and more conducive to farming. Max Torbenson, formerly a postdoc at The Ohio State University in their Civil Engineering Department, now a Research Associate at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, studied tree rings to learn about past environments and climates. While he admits that it's difficult to attribute the effects of the drought to altering any specific part of the Civil Wars, reports do describe issues in supply chains due to rivers drying up and shortages of water for troops and animals used for transportation. In the latest episode of AGU's podcast Third Pod from the Sun, Max describes how the work he and others are doing can inform us about how climate change has been influencing wildlife and humans for hundreds of years. Listen as Max recounts his journey as a scientist, takes us to remote field locations full of danger, and fills us in on why he fell in love with U.S. This episode was produced Shane M Hanlon and mixed by Collin Warren.

So let's talk about levering the power of public health... How important are civic engagement and politics in elevating the power and practice of public health? It's still sad how it took us a pandemic for people to recognize that we really should be thinking about the importance of public health. That COVID-19 pandemic—that is what happens when we don't have a great structure, especially on a national level. We should be taking action hand-in-hand, for as today's guest said, public health is ingrained in all that we do in life. Unfortunately, here we are, forgetting its importance as soon as things got “well” with us. But we don't want that to go on, that's why I invited Leela Ramachandran. She is a Research Associate for the Public Health Institute of Western Massachusetts and an Elected School Committee Member at Acton Boxborough Regional School District. Through experiences in research and projects, she realized her passion for dismantling systems of oppression, centering historically marginalized populations, and decolonizing the field of public health. Join us as we learn how we can take part in this initiative and hopefully create a better version of both the world and ourselves. Why you need to check this episode: Recognize how important the role of civic engagement and politics are in relation to public health; Understand the power of your network/s in helping activate people's eagerness to take action for a better world; and Gain insights from Leela's experiences and tips on how you can take part in putting the power of public health & advocacy into mainstream “It's important to find the ways that you can contribute. There are plenty of ways to do things; you just have to want to do it and find the thing that works for you.”– Leela Ramachandran Notable Quotes: “I don't think I'd be the physician that I am today without my public health degree.” – Dr. Berry Pierre “All this is public health, and that's why I love public health so much. It's so ingrained in every profession; everything that we do in our lives is somehow related to public health… I just think public health is one of the most important things that you could do. And it's not just like a job; for me, it's perspective.” – Leela Ramachandran “We're important when we matter when it's a national crisis—international, actually—and then all of a sudden, it's kind of forgotten about even though the public health duties do not end.” – Leela Ramachandran “In this beautiful, capitalist country that we live in, money talks and money does things, and money allows you and affords you the opportunity to implement really good public health programs; lack thereof can be detrimental. And so, oftentimes, public health depends on policy, funding, our work.” – Leela Ramachandran “I am not the world's best expert at international policies and politics, but other people are… I think it's just doing what you can in circles of influence. I can't get the whole town to care, but if I can get five of my friends to care like each one teaches one, then they can go get their friends to come on. It's really about who's in your network, who can you pull into this, and who they're affecting.” – Leela Ramachandran “In a world that really overwhelms you, you have to pick something and just go for it. And if not's working, that's fine; it doesn't have to be perfect on the first run.” – Leela Ramachandran Sign up at www.listentodrberry.com to join the mailing list.

Did you know that there are approximately 10 times more moth species worldwide than there are butterfly species? Or that without moths we would have fewer songbirds, less genetic diversity in many of our native plants, and lower harvests of many popular fruits? Or that creating better moth habitats around our homes also benefits our health and wellbeing? Dr. Elena Tartaglia shares her love of moths, some of the key roles they play in the ecosystem, how helping moths also helps us, and much more. Elena is a co-founder of National Moth Week and a Research Associate at Rutgers University.

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes John S. Michael. A historian and a Research Associate with the McNeil Center for Early American Studies at the campus of the University of Pennsylvania, Mr. Michael worked for government agencies for over 25 years. His professional focus is demographics largely dealing with US Census data. Earlier this year, Gus shared a report about John J. Audubon digging up non-white corpses to share skulls with his buddy Samuel George Morton. Mr. Michael has done extensive research on Morton's Racist craniology work - which posits that black people are dumb and have tiny skulls and brains. Apparently, Morton had homies around the globe ship him skulls to bolster his Racist views. We discuss the city of Philadelphia's reputation for trafficking slave corpses during the 19th century. #TheCOWS14Years INVEST in The COWS – http://paypal.me/TheCOWS Cash App: https://cash.app/$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 605.313.5164 CODE: 564943#

On February 6, 2023, fighting erupted around Las Anod, a city in the eastern parts of the de facto independent state of Somaliland. This still-ongoing conflict has been subject to recent scrutiny from the United Nations, IGAD, US State Department, and others. Markus Hoehne, a Research Associate at the Institute of Social Anthropology in the University of Leipzig, has extensive knowledge about this conflict, which has already been simmering for decades before this year's latest eruption. In 2015, Hoehne published Between Somaliland and Puntland: Marginalization, Militarization and Conflicting Political Visions (Rift Valley Institute, 2023), one of the most extensive English-language texts about the roots and consequences of tensions in the Las Anod area. In this episode, we revisit Between Somaliland and Puntland in light of the Las Anod conflict. Markus Hoehne gives an overview of the conflict, outlines his main points from the book, and provides insights from a recent visit to the Las Anod area in May 2023. He also shares broader thoughts on the role of social anthropologists in conflict zones—a topic of concern in Dynamics of Identification and Conflict: Anthropological Encounters, one of Hoehne's edited volumes. More information about Markus Hoehne's works can be found here: Between Somaliland and Puntland: Marginalization, Militarization and Conflicting Political Visions Dynamics of Identification and Conflict: Anthropological Encounters Markus' latest article in African Arguments about Las Anod Anthony Kao is a writer who intersects international affairs and cultural criticism.

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Dr. Judith Fathallah. Since we began discussing the Columbine High School Massacre of 1999, Gus has learned so much. Specifically, two new terms I learned because of this subject are: Columbiners & Hybristophilia. The former refers to individuals, most of whom classify as White, with a tremendous interest (obsession) with the people and events associated with the school slaughter. The other term refers to people, again, mostly Whitefolks, with an attraction (often sexual) “toward real or fictional criminals or gangsters. It is a romantic vision of criminality and of the violation of social rules and moral codes.” The cowardly White Columbine tandem has legions of White males and females who “worship” these two as gods, or at minimum, two tragic White dudes who're cute and in need of a hug. We'll speak with Dr. Judith Fathallah about her research on this subject and the White worship of White mass shooters, serial killers, and child murders. An Outreach and Research Associate at Lancaster University and a Research Fellow at Coventry. Dr. Fathallah's interests are new and digital media, fan and subcultures, popular music, and digital literacies. She is currently a member of the COPIM project (Community-Led Infrastructures for Open Access Books), which seeks to research and and develop community-owned infrastructures for the publication of open access books. We'll discuss her 2022 report: “Being a Fangirl of a Serial Killer Is Not Okay.” Although much of Dr. Fathallah's scholarship examines the “sexist” criticisms of White gore consumers, Gus is far more struck by the overwhelmingly White aspect of the Columbiners and True Crime fans in general. #FanBoy #TheCOWS14Years INVEST in The COWS – http://paypal.me/TheCOWS Cash App: https://cash.app/$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 605.313.5164 CODE: 564943#

What a pleasure it was to conduct this fascinating interview with a humble leader, pioneer, and USPTA Hall of Fame recipient, Dr Jack Groppel. Emma has followed Jack's career over the years, watching him present live many times and he has always openly shared his secrets to success. In this episode, Jack talks about the 3 C's (and an extra leadership quality) when it comes to being the best coach you can be. He talks about his early career from studying wildlife biology to those 17 words that one of his professors said, which ultimately changed the direction of his life. He talks about what the business world can learn from sports and how it is important to be humble in your success. Check out some of the highlights below; 1.31: Worst coaching moment: Know when to refer your client to someone else. You can everything to everyone. Sometimes you need to eat humble pie. 2.58: Best coaching moment: Working with Michael Chang - then he goes on to win the French Open three months later. Be humble and be careful what you credit for. Your players still need to execute. 6.56: Sliding Doors: From wildlife biology to having a mentor that believes in you. Dr. Charles Dillman, associate professor of kinesiology, told Jack these 17 words after only one semester that ultimately changed the trajectory of his career: ‘If you really apply yourself, you could become a pioneering leader in the science of tennis performance.' 11.35: What makes a Great Coach? (Connection, Character, and Curiosity) Connection: No one teaches us how to listen - true connection allows for this. Character: Who are you at your core? Why do you coach? Curiosity: What are you deeply curious about? 15.39: Why are more people not curious? Be careful not to get set in your ways and don't just coach the way that you were coached because it worked for you. Find solutions to problems. 17.07: Why do you do what you do? (Do not judge your answer but know your WHY) 18.19: What matters most RIGHT NOW? 20.03: Tennis saved me. 22.00: What can the Corporate world learn from tennis? Focus on the 3 pillars: Physiology - how the brain lights up when you move. (Microbursts) Psychology - What is productive behavior? Nutrition - Food is a drug - how are you eating? 23.55: Agape love - unconditional love (to love thy neighbor in the workplace) Late 80's early 90's - Purpose was important but no one was talking about it. If you were in the workplace prior to 1995 - you were non-contactable. But now we are accessible 24 hours, 7 days, 365 days a year. So who is teaching: Boundaries - how to set boundaries Intentional - how to be intentional with our time Choices - how are you making the right choices 27.19: Conflict can be healthy. Start with what we have in common. 28.39: Work/Life Integration - read the article here: https://www.shrm.org/ResourcesAndTools/hr-topics/employee-relations/Pages/From-WorkLife-Balance-to-WorkLife-Integration.aspx 30.04: Follow John Wooden is considered the greatest NCAA basketball head coach of all time. 31.08: What makes a great leader?

Jack Groppel has been inducted into the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) Hall of Fame. Groppel has been a profound influencer in the world of athletics in sports science. Dr. Jack Groppel is an internationally recognized authority and pioneer in the science of human performance, and an expert in fitness and nutrition. Dr. Groppel is an Adjunct Professor of Management at the J.L. Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. Dr. Groppel is the author of The Corporate Athlete. He developed the Corporate Athlete concept for his training program while serving as an associate professor of kinesiology and bioengineering at the University of Illinois helping both business executives and athletes increase performance levels. In 1992, he combined his program with Dr. Jim Loehr to form the Human Performance Institute, formerly LGE Performance Systems, Inc. A fellow in the American College of Sports Medicine, Dr. Groppel is also a board certified nutritionist in the American College of Nutrition and a former Research Associate to the U.S. Olympic Training Center. He served for 16 years as the Chairman of the National Sport Science Committee of the United States Tennis Association. Sliding Doors Story: Seventeen words — spoken by a UI associate professor of kinesiology — would change Jack Groppel's life in a way even he couldn't imagine at the time. It was the mid-1970s and Groppel, fresh off earning his bachelor's degree in wildlife biology, was about to begin working toward UI degree No. 2, in kinesiology. “Sport science was a relatively young field of study” at the time, he remembers. “I had played tennis at Illinois and loved sport but didn't realize that the study of sport science was even a discipline. “The department head, Dr. Rollin Wright, extended me grace and admitted me into the master of science program. But my greatest memory is of Dr. Charles Dillman, associate professor of kinesiology, telling me these words after only one semester: ‘If you really apply yourself, you could become a pioneering leader in the science of tennis performance.' “That was all it took. “I went straight through my MS degree, studying and writing about tennis science, went to Florida State for my Ph.D., then got hired as the men's tennis coach at Illinois and a professor in kinesiology. I later became the chair of the National Sport Science Committee of the United States Tennis Association, received tenure at Illinois, left tenure at Illinois to start my own business, sold that business to Johnson & Johnson and am now back in higher education at Judson University. “All this because of Dr. Wright's belief in me, and Dr. Dillman's encouraging words on that crisp, windy day in May 1974 in Freer Hall.” Connect with Jack below. https://www.linkedin.com/in/jackgroppel/ Related Articles VIDEO: Jack Groppel on 'The Critical Key to Harnessing the Science of Human Performance' FORBES: A sports scientist's Rx for all leaders
