Why are farmworkers, who provide our food security system, so marginalized by the nation they feed? They work in conditions that are unlawful in other sectors and have skills that American born workers lack. On this episode of Power Station, we hear from two guests who know that farmworker parents want more for their children. This aspiration is made possible by scores of migrant Head Start centers serving the educational, safety and emotional needs of farmworker children from 3 months to 5 years old. Cleofas Rodriguez, a son of immigrants who worked in cotton fields, leads the National Migrant and Seasonal Head Start Association, and created its unparalleled internship program. He advocates for these centers to be fully funded, for passage of the Farm Workforce Modernization Act and is a passionate champion of farmworker children. His belief in them is validated by, among others, Jose Castellano, the son of a single farmworker mom who struggled until a Head Start center changed their lives. Jose now attends Tufts University. And he is a proud NMHSA intern, standing up for his community and telling his story on Power Station.

COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on the world for the past two years, but there's a potentially deadlier threat creeping across the globe right now that hardly anyone is talking about. According to a recent report in the medical journal The Lancet, drug-resistant bacterial infections were linked to five million deaths worldwide in 2019. According to a UK government study, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) could kill ten million people annually by the year 2050. Moreover, as with COVID-19, drug-resistant bacterial infections aren't equitable, and poor and marginalized populations are the hardest hit, both in North America and around the globe. TRNN correspondent David Kattenburg speaks with Dr. Shira Doron and Dr. Tomislav Meštrović about the growing AMR crisis, why it has garnered so little public attention, and what can be done to address it.Dr. Shira Doron is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Tufts University and the Director of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program at Tufts Medical Center.

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. Before becoming COO of T2D2, Jonathan served as the Director of Strategy, Corporate Development and Partnerships at ButterflyMX, a leader in real estate software technology. Prior, he specialized in the financing and development of mega infrastructure and real estate projects. He served as the Director of Budget and Risk Management for the $3.9B Mario M. Cuomo Bridge to replace the Tappan Zee. Prior to that he served as Special Assistant to the Chairman of the New York State Thruway Authority where he was responsible for Board oversight of the $1.5B multi-year capital program and pavement condition rating system. He holds a BA from Tufts University and an MBA from the NYU Stern School of Business. In this episode of the Drone Radio Show, Johnathan talks about T2D2, the company's AI inspection services and how that technology is simplifying the façade and infrastructure inspections.

All things being equal, high school GPA carries the most weight in college admissions decisions. But when it comes to the classes those grades come from, all things most certainly are not equal. Amy and Mike invited educational consultant Aly Beaumont to explore the finer points about course selection for highly selective college admissions. What are five things you will learn in this episode? What classes should a student really take in high school? Do students really need to take foreign language for college, and if so for how long? How important is it to take Honors, AP, or IB classes? Where does dual-enrollment fit in the selective admissions equation? What is more important: GPA or course rigor? MEET OUR GUEST Aly is the founder of Admissions Village, a family focused, affordable, one-on-one college guidance consultancy. Aly is deeply committed to making the college admissions process less stressful, and her success with this objective can be measured by both the growing number of referrals she receives as well as the repeat business of family siblings. Aly is also a founder and advisor to The College T, a website connecting high school students with college students and recent graduates so that first-hand information and experiences can be shared. Aly is a graduate of Tufts University where she majored in History with a concentration in Modern Women and African American History, and was captain of the Equestrian Team.

An Akashic record is believed to be this energetic space that holds your soul's history. If you think of western Christianity and Judaism, they call it the book of life. In Eastern traditions, they call it Akasha Primary Substance but it's this idea that every single thing that you have ever done in the history of your soul's life, not this incarnation, has been recorded and stored somewhere." - Laura Coe Wellness + Wisdom Episode 451 Akashic Records Reader, Author of The Nature of Series, and Founder of The Little Soul School, Laura Coe, returns to share the truth behind the Akashic Records, how to unlock your potential in our 3D world, as well as the concepts of soul splitting, twin flames, and soulmates. What are the Akashic Records and how can they help you better understand your next path in life? Find out how Laura helps people better understand themselves, their soul contracts, and their dharma.

Their 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are unlike anything else on the market. In fact, they were recently voted in Paleo Magazine as one of the top snacks of the year. The reason is that they are committed to making the highest quality, clean products that are free from problematic ingredients. Their beef comes from 100% grass fed cows raised entirely on natural grass pastures by family farmers right here in the USA. As a result they are healthy and happy. PaleoValley's Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks Paleovalley Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks were created to make healthy snacking easier. Their turkey sticks are made from turkeys who are allowed to live as nature intended... on organic grass pastures with plenty of sunshine, fresh air and room to exercise. The result of raising turkeys in such a natural way is a much healthier, clean protein with higher levels of vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s. Unfortunately, virtually all turkey in the USA is conventionally raised with a small portion being "free range" – a virtually meaningless term that simply means the turkeys were allowed access to the outdoors. However, most "free range" turkeys only have access to an outdoor dirt field with no pasture in sight. Their truly pasture-raised turkeys are given full access to outdoor, pesticide-free pasture with plenty of grass and insects for them to nibble on.

The Art of Authenticity Podcast 437 Josh Trent | Death & Rebirth: Why I'm Saying Goodbye to Wellness Force… Laura's life growing up and the moment a spark of curiosity in philosophy reached her soul. Her personal wellness journey and what has led her to do Akashic Record readings for people. Paramahansa Yogananda Paul Chek | All is God Laura's experience as a spiritual guide and her insight about the role's we have to play in the universe. How we can stop ourselves from getting so caught up in focusing on solely “me.” What Akashic Record reading is and how she helps people as a practitioner. How she dives in and explores different peoples' souls' histories during a reading. All the prep and practice she has done when she first began doing readings and then Akashic Records. Laura's experience of now training over 400 people to do Akashic Record readings. What comes up for people when they first learn this skill and how they avoid projecting their own traumas in the process. How and why people should trust their instincts during an Akashic Record reading plus what lessons can be learned if you don't do this. [21:30] Unlock Yourself Further in this 3D World What Laura begins to learn about a person when she first opens the records for them. The teachings the Akashic Records give people; especially if they want to know their purpose i.e. unlock themselves further. Why Akashic readings help the person find out why they're stuck, not give you a linear path. The fact that people work so hard for success and money to achieve happiness or belonging but they're often disappointed with the end results. Her Nature book series and how she channeled them and what that even means. Get the first three books in Laura Coe's Nature of series: The Nature of Love, The Nature of Self-Love, and The Nature of Boundaries. The plan she has to release 10 more books with the information she has channeled. Leela Quantum Her process of surrendering to the process and being okay with not fully understanding why she can do all of this. Exploring quantum physics and how it feels very aligned with the Akashic Records. [31:30] Soul Splitting at Inception & Healing a Loss of Wellbeing The loss of wellbeing and different emotions that a person will go through when they experience a soul split. Her belief and understanding that our souls split at inception and that is what creates our twin flame. Why she doesn't necessarily see this as a harsh split but more a desire from our soul to live through the body. Breaking down how the soul is ever-present and always aware of what is happening around us. How the energy of our past lifetimes can have an impact on our soul experience. Why people can be so drawn to dark energy that they find themselves stuck there rather than being in the light. The fact that bad emotions aren't seen as being wrong in the Akashic Records. Why experiencing bad or negative thoughts, emotions, and behavior is all part of being human. Powerful lessons that we can learn from negative and heavy human experiences such as recognizing and embracing positive ones. Why it's not important whether or not you are or were angry about something but the time difference between the experience and lack of attachment. [40:00] Soul Contract & Free Will Unpacking spiritual bypassing and why sometimes people use it knowingly or unknowingly to protect themselves. Why sometimes we're not ready to heal or fix things and so spiritual bypassing and being positive all the time is a shield people use to protect themselves. Caroline Myss Exploring how the soul contract that we are born with and our free will are combined in this human experience. The plan we all created for ourselves before we came into this world so we can have the experiences and lessons we wanted to experience. Why it may take a soul several lifetimes to finally experience or learn something in this world that they have set out in their contract. The fact that sometimes a soul contract isn't fulfilled and that then creates karma. Why karma isn't a bad spiritual debt, it's just owed without any negative attachment to it. The nagging, excruciating feeling that people can experience when they don't think they're living up to their potential or purpose but they don't know what to do next. How to open yourself up to dharma and the universe's truth that is speaking through your soul to you. The importance of recognizing the limitations of the brain state. [57:00] Dharma: Unlocking Our Truly Embodied Selves The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel van der Kolk MD Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma by Peter A. Levine Why trauma is an important part of the human experience as it teaches us lessons we need to learn during our lifetimes. Exploring what dharma truly is and how we can understand that from at a heart level. What it feels like to tap into the deepest spaces within ourselves and unlock our truly embodied self. The powerful practice of dropping in a couple of times a day into the things that make you pause like thinking about something or someone you love. Why dharma is like building a muscle over time: the more and more you practice and micro drop into, it will help you work your way to finding your purpose. The fact that many people are blocked from living their dharma by comparing it to other people's dharmas. Laura's own struggles and exploration phase as she searched for her calling. The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel van der Kolk MD Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma by Peter A. Levine David Deida The fact that sometimes your purpose for a period of time is actually to be patient in a space of not knowing your purpose. How Josh is being more present with what his triggers and discomfort can teach him. [1:25:50] Twin Flames & Soul Mates Exploring the concepts of twin flames and soul mates plus how you know who is who in your life. Why you might not often meet your twin flame in a lifetime as you live in different eras throughout the soul contract. The rapid growth learning that happens when you do meet your twin flame during your lifetime and why it can be a struggling experience. What a soul mate is and why it's not the same as a twin flame. Why you can have many soul mates but just one twin flame. How twin flames help mirror back not just weaknesses but strengths as well. The reverence, tools, and support necessary for twin flame relationships and why they don't often stay together long-term. How the healing for a twin flame might continue down the line for 3 or more lifetimes even. Laura's relationship with her twin flame and why she's become 10x a better person because of it despite how hard it is in reality. How to know if you've really met your twin flame that is helping you evolve or if you're just in a toxic relationship. What Laura is currently working on for herself right now including releasing and accepting that maybe it's okay to not know everything. Power Quotes From The Show Why We Don't Really Want Success "When we think about success and how we define that and what that looks like; it's very easy to achieve success. Just get out there and grind; don't listen to anything, work 12 hours a day, just go for it and you will get success somewhere but that's not what people want. They want a sense of fulfillment, a sense of connection to themselves, and then that is reflected in the real world. That's why people come up empty-handed when it's all done; they worked hard, they built a business, but something doesn't feel right." - Laura Coe The Healing & Struggle of Twin Flames "The idea of a twin flame is that your soul has split in half and you have one other soul that is your other half. You don't meet in lifetimes that often but when you do there is this rapid growth of learning which causes a lot of struggle because you mirror each other's deepest wounds for the other person to rapidly heal and mostly unknowingly you're mirroring. The struggle is deep and often there is a lot of breaking up, a lot of challenges, and oftentimes the relationships don't work because it's so hard to be around somebody who mirrors you to that degree. It's for your soul growth and it is for your highest good so that you can heal these things and move into the world." - Laura Coe The Difference Between Soul Mates & Twin Flames "Whereas there's one Twin Flame, there are lots of Soul Mates we can meet during our lifetimes. Soul mates are like your best friend that you have had over many lifetimes. They are these souls that you reincarnate with a lot and there is that comfort. You meet how many people in a year in work and even just comings and goings but once in a while you meet someone who is like family to you." - Laura Coe Links From Today's Show  The Little Soul School Akashic Readings with Laura Coe 243 Laura Coe: Emotional Obesity Emotional Obesity by Laura Coe Get the first three books in Laura Coe's Nature of series: The Nature of Love, The Nature of Self-Love, and The Nature of Boundaries.

She found her calling in philosophy, which she studied at Brandeis, as well as in graduate school at Tufts University. After realizing she didn't want to pursue academia, she went on to become a healthcare tech entrepreneur. After selling her company in 2006, she came back to her philosophical roots and wrote Emotional Obesity, as well as hosted the popular podcast, The Art of Authenticity. When Laura came across the Akashic Records—a way to systematically deepen the connection to your authentic voice—she found that the wisdom of the Records changed the trajectory of her work, and she used it to author The Nature of Series and to found The Little Soul School.

154. African Clean Energy Access: Why Gas Cannot Be The Future Africa Chooses with Rachel Kyte

In this episode, we talk about the impacts of living through a global energy crisis while living through a climate crisis. Inflation is running at 10% in most major economies, the highest in decades. This is driven primarily by the cost of food and energy. And while most of us are aware of higher prices at the pump and on energy bills, today we focus on the hardest place it is hitting: Africa. Since 2019, 4% of Africans have lost access to affordable energy, undoing a decade of gains.  And with a desire in the Global North to get off of Russian Gas, there is higher demand for gas, and therefore pushing more and more people out of the ability to afford it. This week in response, African Ministers made the case for expanding gas production in Africa, amidst a climate crisis. So that's the setup for this week's discussion - we bring in Rachel Kyte, Dean of the Fletcher School at Tufts University to argue the case on how to move forward out of this complicated situation. And be sure to stick around ‘til the end for a brand new tune from Carmody titled, “Mother.”   Enjoy the show!   —   Christiana + Tom's book ‘The Future We Choose' is available now!

Natasha Warikoo, Professor of Sociology at Tufts University spent time in a privileged suburb on the East Coast doing research for her book “Race at The Top: Asian Americans and Whites in Pursuit of the American Dream in Suburban Schools.” In a majority white town she calls Woodcrest, the Asian population is growing, and the Asian students consistently out-perform the white students there. We speak with Natasha about the competition between white and Asian students at Woodcrest and in suburbs like it. We also discuss where this leaves students whose opportunities are limited due to the lack of resources and access.  “Race at The Top: Asian Americans and Whites in Pursuit of the American Dream in Suburban Schools” by Natasha Warikoo (The University of Chicago Press)

The Pulitzer Prize is one of the most prestigious awards in the country for writers... and last year's winners were just announced this week. So today, we're looking back at two nonfiction authors whose books won the accolade. First, journalist Andrea Elliot speaks to Jane Clyson on Here and Now about her book Invisible Child, the story of how a young child's life was directed by homelessness. Then, Tufts University professor Erin Kelly speaks to Debbie Elliott about the autobiography she helped the late artist Winfred Rembert write – a story about civil rights, injustice, and coping through art.
