How do you simplify material-failure detection?  If you ask today's guest, he would say teach a computer to do it. Jonathan Ehrlich is COO of T2D2, a software-as-a-service company that that uses artificial intelligence to identify and assess damage and deterioration to buildings and structures. T2D2 applies data from more than 50 years of building inspection and forensic investigation work. The data is now available to property and portfolio owners and managers as well as municipalities to identify deterioration early and throughout the life of an asset. T2D2 makes it easier, quicker and less expensive to inspect structures by identifying damage and defects before they become major issues.  Their software automatically detects visible damage in concrete, steel and masonry structures. T2D2 was established within Thornton Tomasetti, a global design and engineering firm with more than 50 years experience in structural design.  Initially part of the Core Studio incubator, T2D2 was commercialized as a separate entity through the firm's accelerator program.

This week's special double episode features two interviews: my conversation with Jim Papa, who runs the Washington, D.C. office of Global Strategy Group (GSG), where he guides operations and strategy for GSG's public affairs, communications, and research practices, and Jim's interview of me for GSG's podcast, STAFFER.  As Partner at GSC, Jim advises CEOs and other C-suite executives grappling with public affairs challenges and opportunities across multiple industries. Prior to joining GSG, Jim was Special Assistant to the President for Legislative Affairs in the Obama White House from 2009-2012, where played an important role in the enactment of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the Affordable Care Act, and other landmark laws.  Former Chicago Mayor and current U.S. Ambassador to Japan Rahm Emanuel had this to say about Jim: “Papa is someone you want in the trenches with you.” Prior to serving in the White House, Jim earned a reputation as a top flight communications and political strategist on Capitol Hill. He served as a senior advisor to Democratic Caucus Chairman Rahm Emanuel and Chief of Staff to Rep. Rush Holt, one of only three scientists serving in Congress at that time, among other key senior roles. Jim is an experienced spokesman and media trainer who has prepared clients for broadcast appearances ranging from "Meet the Press" to "60 Minutes". He has guest lectured at Georgetown University, George Washington University, and American University. Jim earned his J.D. from Georgetown Law and an undergraduate degree from Cornell University. Topics covered in the double episode include: - Some of the common missteps Jim encounters as he guides and counsels clients and Members of Congress in effective communication and how he addresses and remedies them Lessons Jim learned from U.S. Congressman Rush Holt (D-NJ) when Jim served as Holt's Chief of Staff, including the role of data and information as a persuasive lever in moving public policy forward.  The communication tools Jim brings to the table when advising clients or directly advocating, including those JIm feels are often overlooked or underutilized. Examples of particularly powerful communications that moved an audience or listeners when Jim was working at the WHite House What role - in terms of persuasive power or influence-building - does Jim think the delivery of the message plays in the ability to hit the mark as well as characteristics of the messenger. A book Jim recommends to listeners interested in improving the way they communicate their research, priorities, or policy issues.

More than 107,000 people died of drug overdoses in the U.S. last year. That's a 50% increase over 2019, which indicates the COVID-19 pandemic was deadly in more ways than one. Those statistics come from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In Pennsylvania, 5,162 people died of drug overdoses in 2020 and the incomplete numbers from 2021 show 5,224 were killed by overdoses. Most of the overdose deaths were linked to fentanyl — the synthetic opioid that 50 times more powerful than heroin. Many drugs purchased on the street are laced with fentanyl, without the buyer knowing it, so the user is gambling they haven't taken a lethal dose of fentanyl. With so much attention focused on the pandemic, the opioid epidemic has flown under the radar. What can be done to stop it?

The 18-year-old gunman who opened fire on a Buffalo grocery store over the weekend, killing 10 mostly Black victims, cited the ”Great Replacement Theory” in his manifesto. So what is that, exactly? And how does it find its way into mainstream culture?This conversation with the Anti-Defamation League's Jonathan Greenblatt was taped just days before that shooting. Here Greenblatt explains the origins of the troubling conspiracy theory that motivated the shooter. We discuss Tucker Carlson, extremist politicians, and the role of tech giants and media in disseminating white nationalist ideas. In Greenblatt's view, all this drives a rise in anti-semitism, racism and threats of real world violence. Greenblatt explains the work the ADL is doing now – and has done over the last 100 years – to combat anti-semitism and hate.Greenblatt is the CEO of the ADL. He previously served as the Special Assistant to President Obama at the Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation. He co-founded Ethos Water in 2002, which was acquired by Starbucks.

The Biden administration is making progress on the Global Health Security and Pandemic Preparedness Fund, envisioned as a Financial Intermediary Fund at the World Bank. The fund will invest in a globally linked bio-surveillance and early warning system, aid to the most vulnerable countries to build their health security, and rapid research and development in regulatory systems to create, rapidly scale, and distribute medical countermeasures. We need to "finish the job" and get out of this phase of the pandemic and need truly global surveillance systems and stronger information sharing to prevent the next biological threat. The second Covid-19 Summit has been announced for May 12, with the dual goals of ending the acute phase of the Covid-19 pandemic and strengthening preparedness for variants and future pandemic threats.

A little while ago, I had a conversation with Dr. Madhukar Pai about vaccine equity. In it, I tried to understand why and how developed countries were spending billions on COVID vaccine boosters, but so relatively little in low-income countries. Not to say that nothing has been done, but it's a pretty clear-cut case where whatever we have done, however complex the system, it's nowhere near enough. I can't be more clear here. This will affect you. We're handing out 21 million shots a day across the world, and yet, 36.8% of the world's population – 2.9 billion people – still haven't received a single shot. 87% of people in low-income countries still haven't received a single shot. The international organization that was supposed to shepherd this whole endeavor to vaccinate the world, COVAX, has, however you squeeze it, failed. I want to understand technically what the issues have been, but also as always, to understand why we do what we do when it's so morally corrupt, when it costs so many lives, and even when all of the evidence tells us that it will come back to bite us. My guest today is Gayle Smith. Gayle served until recently as Coordinator for Global COVID Response and Health Security at the Department of State and has recently returned to her role as the President and CEO of the ONE Campaign. Prior to the ONE Campaign, Smith was the Administrator of USAID, where she led a staff of more than 10,000 people working to end extreme poverty, foster sustained and inclusive economic growth, and promote resilient, democratic societies all over the world.  Smith has also served as Special Assistant to President Obama and Senior Director for Development and Democracy at the National Security Council, where she helped lead the U.S. and global response to the Ebola crisis in 2014 and 2015, and as Special Assistant to President Clinton and Senior Director for African affairs at the National Security Council. If anyone can help me understand where the US, in particular, has fallen short of helping to vaccinate the world and get us out of this thing, it's Gayle. ----------- Have feedback or questions? http://www.twitter.com/importantnotimp (Tweet us), or send a message to questions@importantnotimportant.com New here?
