On Tuesday's show: With news of the city-wide boil water notice being lifted, we bring you the latest on what caused it and the coming review of how it happened. And the next session of the Texas Legislature doesn't begin until January, but plenty of bills for the session have been filed. While plenty of them are very serious, there are some that are filed simply for political theater in order to score points with constituents. We talk about both kinds with Rice University's Mark Jones. Also this hour: A startup called Greentown Labs wants to train the next generation of entrepreneurs to address the threat of climate change – while making a lot of money along the way -- through its new TEX-E program. Then, we learn how a researcher Luis Medina is using a new telenovela to help Latinos dealing with Alzheimer's disease. And stories of grief and healing inspire (w)Hole, a new exhibit combining audio storytelling and visual art at The Jung Center through Dec. 20.

Professor Terrence L. Johnson facilitated a conversation with Professor Anthony Pinn, Agnes Cullen Arnold Professor of Humanities and Professor of Religion at Rice University, who is a Visiting Scholar at the Harvard Divinity School for the academic year 2022-23, focused on Professor Pinn's most recent book, The Interplay of Things. In The Interplay of Things, Pinn theorizes religion as a technology for interrogating human experiences and the boundaries between people and other things. Rather than considering religion in terms of institutions, doctrines, and creeds, Pinn shows how religion exposes the openness and porousness of all things and how they are always involved in processes of exchange and interplay.

It was Jackie's kids who finally got her to pursue her MBA. She realized she was at a loss for how to explain what she did for a living to her kids, when their friends could easily describe how their parents were teachers, or worked at Target. It was time for her to pursue something different in her career.Jackie earned her MBA from Rice Business, graduating in 2021. But tragically, during her time in the program, she lost her three children and mother in a house fire during the Houston freeze in February of 2021.But resilience is deep in Jackie's bones, having been raised by Vietnamese immigrants who fled Vietnam in 1979. Jackie was born in a refugee camp in Malaysia, where her parents were rescued after being found adrift in the South China Sea. In this episode, Jackie dives deep with host Maya Pomroy (‘21) talking about her career path, carrying on the memory of her 3 children Collette, Edison and Olivia, and transforming the lowest points of her story into hope and action through the CEO Foundation, which supports initiatives that closely align with her core values of education, arts, health, wellness, and environmental and social impact for the children of Sugar Land, TX and beyond.Episode Quotes:Promoting positive environmental & social impact through the CEO Foundation20:41: I came to the realization that why not continue to double down on things like education, right? And why not promote positive environmental and social impacts, especially among kids? Certainly, in my upbringing, I didn't learn enough about that kind of stuff. And so, I think the more we're able to expose kids to some of these things at a younger age, it'll help shape them as tomorrow's leaders, innovators, and change-makers.The MBA program as a shared experience25:53 - The MBA experience was as much mine as it was my kids because I needed them to be flexible about certain things. When it came to every other weekend when I had to be in class, they were genuinely excited for me. And that fueled me as well.Inspiration for pursuing MBA07:48 - At one point I realized, I was kind of at a loss for words when it came to telling my kids what I did for a living. The concept of payments and financial services is just way too abstract and really lame to kids. And I envied, honestly, the parents who could easily convey the value of their contribution as like police officers or teachers, or even like, so-and-so's mom, who's a director at Target. Why she started the CEO Foundation22:57 - Is it really, am I really being responsible with those funds? And, I kind of just wanted to do right by everyone's kindness. But eventually I think I realized, I came to the realization that, why not continue to double down on things like education.Show Links:Guest Profile: Jackie Pham on LinkedIn CEO Foundation Website CEO Foundation on Instagram CEO Foundation on Facebook CEO Foundation on LinkedIn

Douglas Brinkley - Exploring the Past to Find Inspiration for the Future

Douglas Brinkley is a world-renowned historian, author, and professor who may be best known to Mountain & Prairie listeners as the author of "The Wilderness Warrior: Theodore Roosevelt and the Crusade for America" and "Rightful Heritage: Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Land of America," which detailed the first two waves of the United States' conservation movement. His most recent book is "Silent Spring Revolution: John F. Kennedy, Rachel Carson, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, and the Great Environmental Awakening," which delves into the third wave of conservation and the rise of the modern environmental movement. I was lucky enough to read an advanced copy of Silent Spring Revolution, and I highly recommend it. - Doug was raised in Ohio and from an early age, his parents instilled in him and deep love and respect for wild places, national parks, and the rich history of conservation in the United States. After earning his M.A. and Ph.D. from Georgetown University, Doug began his career as a professor and historian, and he went on to teach at numerous prestigious institutions, including the US Naval Academy, Princeton, Hofstra, Tulane, and, most recently, Rice University. The prolific nature of Doug's writing life is hard to comprehend– he's written extensively about everyone from TR to FDR, JFK to Rosa Parks, and about places ranging from the Alaskan Wilderness to the moon. He's the literary executor of Hunter S. Thompson's estate and has edited the diaries of Jack Kerouac for two separate books. He's also served on the boards of numerous conservation organizations and has won awards for his contributions to the conservation movement. And those accomplishments just scratch the surface of his career… - Doug has been a long-time literary hero of mine, and I credit "The Wilderness Warrior" with fueling my obsession with TR and inspiring me to move out of the real estate business and into land and water conservation work. So when I had the opportunity to join Doug at his home in Austin for a conversation about "Silent Spring Revolution," I didn't hesitate to jump on a plane to Texas. We had a wonderful, wide-ranging conversation about the book, exploring everything from the life and work of Rachel Carson to the TR-like qualities of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas to the environmental legacies of JFK, LBJ, and Nixon. We also talk about Doug's longstanding personal connection to conservation and how a deep love of teaching is at the core of all of his work. Doug also talks about the roles that art and music play in his life, what gives him hope for the future, and much more. The episode notes are jam-packed with everything we discussed, so be sure to visit the episode webpage for copious resources and links. - Again, I highly recommend "Silent Spring Revolution," but really, I highly recommend all of Doug's work. I greatly appreciate Doug welcoming me into his home and taking the time to chat, I hope you enjoy both this conversation and "Silent Spring Revolution" as much as I did. --- Douglas Brinkley "Silent Spring Revolution: John F.

Self-confidence is a superpower that can help determine our success. It is a force that gives us the courage and strength to take any risk, despite knowing our weaknesses. Our leaders play a great role in empowering us, supporting us in rebuilding ourselves and reinventing our self-expression.   In this episode of Fifth Dimensional Leadership, I interview Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler, Managing Partner and Founder of Aesthetx. Growing up in a working-class home caring for her siblings, Dr. Zeidler appreciated the ability to care for others. As her interest in medicine grew, so did her passion for helping others in a way that inspired her creativity and sense of beauty. In our conversation, Dr. Zeidler discusses the science behind rebuilding our self-confidence and reshaping our success.   Dr. Zeidler received her Bachelor of Arts degree in biology from Rice University in Houston, Texas. She earned her Doctor of Medicine Degree at the University of California, San Francisco, one of the top five medical schools in the country. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, her experience in reconstruction gives her more than just a broad understanding of the complexities of the human body, but allows her to understand exactly how significantly cosmetic surgery can change someone's life for the better.   Along with her stellar reputation in aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, Dr. Zeidler is considered a leading authority on the newest technologies related to breast surgery. Dr. Zeidler works as a clinical researcher for companies such as  Allergan and Sientra. She has also written several publications and lectured across the country to educate other plastic surgeons on these technologies, as well as her own techniques in aesthetic breast surgery.    Things you will also learn in this episode: How Dr. Z  side-stepped imposter syndrome by committing to exceptional training and mentorship.  The driving forces behind balancing operating and patient care, running a practice and being a wife and mother. Emerging aesthetic trends among those from different generations. What it means to have a “right to beauty” and how the ideals of beauty have changed in recent years. How self-confidence and self-expression can lead to success. Quotes: “As a surgeon, thinking like a chef means you're creating something beautiful; medically sound, life-saving, beautifying, and making someone whole using those principles.” - Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler   “You can express your own style and not be worried that someone is going to discount anything that you have to say. Your research and credibility are not affected by a little bit of self-expression.” - Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler   “Your overall sense of self and self-confidence is tied to your personal perception of your self-expression, whether it's beauty, or youth. For everyone, it means something different.” - Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler   “The idea of confidence with your physical presence in the world is tied with success.” - Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler

Women who cross the border to perform care work for American families—cleaning their homes, running their errands, and raising their kids—number among the most hidden and undervalued laborers in our society. Too often, their voices go unheard. On this episode, Commonweal associate editor Regina Munch speaks with Elizabeth Cummins Muñoz, a lecturer at Rice University and author of Mothercoin: The Stories of Immigrant Nannies.  Cummins Muñoz points out that while these workers don't see themselves as “victims,” the conflict between providing care and being paid to do it—sometimes at the expense of one's own family—can be devastating.

Jay Steinfeld |  Experimenting and Enjoying the Ride  "You really never know when you set out to do anything, if it's going to work. If you do know, then you're not experimenting enough."  — Jay Steinfeld    This week's guest is Jay Steinfeld, author of Lead from the Core and founder of Blinds.com, which he sold to Home Depot in 2014. Steinfeld remained the company's CEO until he left in 2020 to not retire but, as he calls it, "rewire." He teaches business and entrepreneurship at Rice University, serves on multiple boards, and is active in charitable organizations.   Jay's predominant approach to life and to business is to learn as much as possible, with the understanding that you're never going to know it all. He believes in experimentation, and in taking small steps to try something new to figure out if it's something he wants to build on. The loss of two important people in his life—his mother when he was a teenager and his wife after 25 years of marriage, both to cancer in their late 40s—also motivated him to learn and come to a better understanding of how he wanted to live his life. Two texts he cites as influential are Man's Search for Meaning by Victor Frankel and The Happiness Hypothesis by Jonathan Haidt.   Jay explains how being value-led drove him in building his company. One of these values is experimenting without fear of failure. By articulating and modeling the core values of the company, he was able to hire people who would not be afraid to speak up and experiment. He was also able to guide his business as it was sold to Home Depot, making sure that the people who had helped him build his business were recognized, appreciated, and well compensated for all they did. Honesty is another value Jay discusses in this episode, where he advises CEOs to "not be chickenshit" but to be the one who tells people what they need to know.    Another value Jay discusses is to "enjoy the ride." Having challenges and facing the unknown have been motivating for him, and he loves working with others to come up with new ideas and solutions. He believes his greatest achievement is assembling teams of people who succeeded at doing things he could never have done alone.    In this episode of Leading with Genuine Care, you'll also learn: How the loss of Jay Steinfeld's mother and wife affected how sees the world  How he approaches social media  How he went about planning for his "rewirement" and the one person he wanted to meet  When it might make sense to give up  How to model and send the message to employees that experimentation is valued  What you need to do if an employee is not performing up to expectations  What to do before selling a business    Connect With Jay Steinfeld   Website www.jaysteinfeld.com Link to download first chapter of book: www.jaysteinfeld.com/thebook Book page on Amazon: Lead from the Core: The Four Principles for Profit and Prosperity   LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/jaysteinfeld   Twitter www.twitter.com/jaysteinfeld   The 2022 Leading with Genuine Care Retreat is at full capacity.*  *If you would like to be placed on the waiting list, please click here and fill out the form.

This one is definitely an adults only, very candid conversation on the Birds + The Bees with Emily Jamea, a Sex Therapist, Speaker, Author and Podcast Host. I hope this can take away the stigma of the tricky conversations we have with our children around Sex and Puberty. People often ask Emily how she got into the field of sex therapy. Emily grew up in a home where sex was not a taboo topic. Her father worked as an OBGYN and both of her parent were very progressive. Together, her parent taught her that her body and sexuality were nothing to be ashamed of. As she got older she became the one her friends came to for advice on sex and relationships. It became clear to her that people had a lot of anxiety and insecurities around these topics. That's when her journey began. She studied Psychology and Human Sexuality while at The University of Texas. She then went on to receive her Masters and eventually earned her PhD in Sexology. Emily has spent over working with individuals and couples to overcome relationship and sexual hurdles in order to enjoy more meaningful lives. As much as Emily loves her work, her greatest joy is her family. She is happily married with two children. Emily's expert opinion has been featured on NBC, CNN, CBS, USA Today, The Houston Chronicle, Men's Fitness, Women's Health, and more. She has given many guest lectures at Baylor College of Medicine, Rice University, MD Anderson, Methodist Hospital, and at various support groups and meetings in the Houston area.

Blunt Force Truth
A Deep Dive into Crime and Economics - an Interview with Dr. John Lott Jr.

Blunt Force Truth

Today's show rundown: It occurred to Chuck, how the Democrats really feel about America. Not the average Democrat voter, Im talking the Elites - Mark says they think the American people are stupid (remember Hillary). Chuck says the Dems in Washington hold up Biden like he is a saint with "all he has accomplished". But he hasn't done anything for the average person, and it is disturbing that these Elitists feel that you just do not matter to them. You don't hear much about the DOJ filing against the State of Georgia. Chuck goes into quoting Game of Thrones..."Chaos if the ladder to power" - clearly some of these characters were Democrats. This is the reason Ben Franklin said those who trade temporary freedom for security shall have neither. The Left wants to make it so chaotic that people will just give up their rights. Pelosi gets up there and acts like she is all in on going to war with Russia. We are introduced to our guest today, and Chuck starts us out with a question about crime - why are people in NYC, Chicago and places like that, why are they tolerating the crime that is going on. John tells us that its just not that risky to be a criminal in these cities right now. With cuts to the Police and lesser punishments for serious crimes, its no big deal to be a violent criminal in these democratic havens. More about John Lott, Jr.: Dr. John R. Lott, Jr. is an economist and a world recognized expert on guns and crime. Lott has held research or teaching positions at various academic institutions including the University of Chicago, Yale University, the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Stanford University, and Rice University, and was the chief economist at the United States Sentencing Commission during 1988-1989. He is currently a contributor to The Hill newspaper and a Fox News columnist. He holds a Ph.D. in economics from UCLA. Lott is a prolific author for both academic and popular publications. He has published over 100 articles in peer-reviewed academic journals and written nine books, including “More Guns, Less Crime,” “The Bias Against Guns,” and “Freedomnomics.” His most recent books are “Dumbing Down the Courts: How politics keeps the smartest judges off the bench” and “The War on Guns.” Nobel laureate Milton Friedman noted: “John Lott has few equals as a perceptive analyst of controversial public policy issues.” He has been one of the most productive and cited economists in the world (during 1969 to 2000 he ranked 26th worldwide in terms of quality adjusted total academic journal output, 4th in terms of total research output, and 86th in terms of citations). Among economics, business and law professors his research is currently the 28th most downloaded in the world. He is also a frequent writer of op-eds.

Rice University's Michelle Foss, Ph.D. gives us an easy to understand overview of the materials science and supply chains behind wind and solar energy. The proponents of wind and solar would like you to believe that these technologies just appear out of nowhere - no resources needed. But Michelle shows us how these "renewable" technologies take an inordinate amount of finite resources to produce, and why their benefits aren't worth the tradeoffs - especially when compared with nuclear and natural gas. Michelle Foss, Ph.D., is the fellow in energy, minerals and materials at Rice University's Baker Institute, developing policies and conducting research to help build capacity on non-fuel minerals supply chains.
