You might be familiar with the phrase 'emotional intelligence,' but do you know how deeply it can impact the lives of those on the front lines of service? Today's guest, Greg Campbell, Ph.D. VP of Law Enforcement & Government at TalentSmart EQ and former Deputy Chief Inspector of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service unpacks the transformative power of emotional intelligence, particularly amongst service personnel. Drawing from his personal journey that began in Compton and led to a career in law enforcement, Greg offers invaluable perspectives on understanding and harnessing our emotions to shape healthier actions.Growing up, Greg's father, a Vietnam War veteran, was emotionally distant due to unaddressed war trauma, and this personal experience sparked his interest in emotional intelligence and its potential to heal and empower. His research on the impact of emotional intelligence on first responders and military personnel is absolutely fascinating. Emotional intelligence is not just about processing trauma but also about understanding our emotions and using them to guide our actions better. As our conversation with Dr. Campbell evolves, we touch upon the realities of law enforcement and how emotional intelligence can play a vital role in policing. The power of emotional intelligence is not just theoretical; it's practical and applicable in the real world—from mentoring and training to community policing.Show Note Resources:LinkedIn: Gregory Campbell, PhD Book: Emotional Intelligence 2.0Book: Emotional Intelligence HabitsSupport the showAdditional Resources: Subscribe/Rate/Review on iTunes ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐: >>>HEREEnroll Here

Dr. Reid Lyon is one of the leading experts in reading research. After years working for and with the highest levels of the U.S. government, Dr. Lyon stepped away from his reading research. But in May 2023, Dr. Lyon released his "Ten Maxims: What We've Learned So Far About How Children Learn to Read." And of course Susan jumped at the chance to invite him onto the podcast. In a wide-reaching interview, Dr. Lyon traces his life story from the Vietnam War to the National Institute of Health. He also offers an expansive overview of what we know about teaching reading, how children learn—including a discussion of whole language vs. phonics—and his response to educators wondering what reading actually is and what methodology of teaching students to read is most effective. Be on the lookout for Part 2 of our interview with Dr. Reid Lyon, being released next week.Show notes:Dr. Reid Lyon: “Ten Maxims: What We've Learned So Far About How Children Learn to Read”Keith Rayner's research: “Eye movements in reading and information processing: 20 years of research”Marilyn Adams: Beginning to ReadSusan Brady:  Phonological Processes in Literacy Emily Hanford: “Sold a Story: How Teaching Kids to Read Went So Wrong”Quotes:“Phonics—that is, looking at letters, letter patterns, learning how to bring sound to associate to those letters—is absolutely essential, non-negotiable. It has to be learned. But it in no way is sufficient to be able to comprehend, which is the goal of reading.” —Dr. Reid Lyon“Reading is a complex behavior subserved by multiple systems in the brain that integrate and inform each other.” —Dr. Reid Lyon“It's a symphony of neural activity that undergirds this very complex behavior of just learning how to read. So when people boil reading down into phonics or whole language, it's just a false characterization.” —Dr. Reid Lyon“People somehow conflated this natural ability of oral language to develop—just expose kids, just shower them with language—to reading. And reading is by no means natural. It has to be taught. It does not reside in the brain systems.” —Dr. Reid Lyon“We're hampered by the teacher-knowledge issue. That's not a teacher's fault. That's a college of education system that is bereft of responsibility. It operates on philosophical foundations. It operates on belief systems. It's very politicized. It looks at reading as a right, which it is. But it doesn't look at the instruction of reading as methodology—strategies, direct and comprehensive programs that can help most kids learn to read.” —Dr. Reid Lyon

Today you are going to hear an important story brought you by 3 MK ULTRA survivors who are bravely and courageously step up to tell us the harrowing childhood story they all have in common. Introducing: Stanford Research Institute mind-control experiment survivors: Frida, Ariadne, and Marc Victor and Marc's amazing partner, Marina Louv! Taking a few quotes off Wikipedia: “Stanford Research Institute is an American non-profit research institute and organization headquartered in Menlo Park, California. The trustees of Stanford University established SRI in 1946 as a center of innovation to support economic development in the region. The organization was founded as the Stanford Research Institute. SRI formally separated from Stanford University in 1970 and became known as SRI International in 1977. SRI performs client-sponsored research and development for government agencies, commercial businesses, and private foundations. Herbert Hoover, then a trustee of Stanford University, was also an early proponent of an institute but became less involved with the project after he was elected president of the United States.In April 1953, Walt and Roy Disney hired SRI (and in particular, Harrison Price) to consult on their proposal for establishing an amusement park in Burbank, California. SRI provided information on location, attendance patterns, and economic feasibility. SRI selected a larger site in Anaheim, prepared reports about operation, and provided on-site administrative support for Disneyland and acted in an advisory role as the park expanded.As a belated response to Vietnam War protesters who believed that funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) made the university part of the military–industrial complex, the Stanford Research Institute split from Stanford University in 1970. The organization subsequently changed its name from the Stanford Research Institute to SRI International in 1977. In 1972, physicists Harold E. Puthoff and Russell Targ undertook a series of investigations of psychic phenomena sponsored by the CIA, for which they coined the term remote viewing.In 1986, SRI.com became the 8th registered ".com" domain.In December 2007, SRI launched a spin-off company, Siri Inc., which Apple acquired in April 2010.[105] In October 2011, Apple announced the Siri personal assistant as an integrated feature of the Apple iPhone 4S.[106] Siri's technology was born from SRI's work on the DARPA-funded CALO project, described by SRI as the largest artificial intelligence project ever launched.[107] Siri was co-founded in December 2007However, what they don't tell us about on Wikipedia about SRA are the horrific MK ULTRA mind control experiments that were going on behind the scenes from 1953 until 1969 at the hands of ‘Dr. Green' himself, aka: Josef Mengele on innocent children. But we are about to change that today as 3 amazing survivors come forward to share their stories with you. This is important because we often forget the vastness of where these experiments were allowed to happen. For the sake of our own discernment and for the safety of our children and youth, we need to be brave enough to lift the veil off whatever is elevated in society and look beyond what is obvious until we come to a place of truth.

Rescorla's early life saw him join the British Army's Parachute Regiment and serve in Cyprus and Rhodesia. He then moved to the United States, where he joined the U.S. Army and served in the 7th Cavalry during the Vietnam War. Rescorla's service in Vietnam at the Battle of Ia Drang earned him several accolades for bravery and leadership, including the Silver Star and the Bronze Star. After his military career, Rescorla pursued a career in security and became the head of security for Morgan Stanley at the company's offices in the World Trade Center's South Tower. His commitment to safety and security was unparalleled, and he conducted regular evacuation drills, which some employees initially found excessive. However, Rescorla's foresight and dedication to preparedness proved invaluable on the morning of September 11, 2001. When American Airlines Flight 11 struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center, Rescorla immediately took charge of the evacuation process in the South Tower. He directed Morgan Stanley employees and other occupants to evacuate, even though the Port Authority initially advised them to stay put. Rescorla's leadership and cool-headedness saved the lives of more than 2,600 people that morning. Tragically, after helping to evacuate most of the building's occupants, he re-entered the South Tower to search for stragglers and was last seen on the 10th floor. The tower collapsed shortly thereafter. Rick Rescorla's selfless actions and unwavering commitment to the safety of others made him a hero during the 9/11 attacks. His story exemplifies courage, leadership, and the willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice to save lives.  We talk about it today! Until next time…out of role!

San Diego Magazine's Happy Half Hour

“He was wearing two dog tags. The bullet went through the first dog tag, but the second deflected it down into his ankle. The bullet's still in his ankle.” As Ky Phan shares on this week's Happy Half Hour podcast, her father's dog tag with the terrifying hole not only saved his life, but eventually became the ticket to a new life for his young family. The Phans are from a small village in South Vietnam, near a river where they would pull crabs, snails, and shrimp. They'd boil them in pots, seasoned with what grew around them—like garlic, lemongrass, lime leaves—and eat them as a family with their hands. It's how the kids loved to eat. They had to hide that from their father—aka “Papa”—because he wanted a certain decorum and manners for his family (mom took the kids' side, playfully acted as lookout for when he was coming home from work). During the Vietnam War, their father fought alongside the U.S. After he was shot, after that dog tag intervened, he was placed in reeducation camps (forced labor camps) by the Communist government. He remained a prisoner of war for five years. “There was a humanitarian organization that helped anyone who'd been a prisoner of war for over five years move to the United States,” explains Ky in our office, seven months pregnant, using a blowtorch to melt cheese on oysters. “But there wasn't any paperwork in war. How would you prove that you were a prisoner of war? So my dad showed them that dog tag.” The Phans settled first with family in Houston. There, their aunt showed them the art of the southern seafood boil, a spicier version of the way they'd eaten in Vietnam. Their dad worked as a nail technician (on the podcast, Ky shares the fascinating story of how Vietnamese-Americans came to dominate the nail salon industry in California, and how it's traced back to an actress who starred in Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds). Eventually, they relocated to San Diego. Her father ran a small fast-food restaurant in City Heights, where Ky and her sister Kim learned the business. They kept their family's seafood boil tradition alive with backyard cookouts—hundreds of pounds of seafood on picnic tables—until they finally decided to translate that experience into their first restaurant. From day one, the line was around the block for Crab Hut. It's a straight-forward concept—a plate filled with dungeness crab, king crab, lobster, shrimp, you name it, ladled in sauce. But it's also a family tradition that followed them halfway across the globe, a family ritual. Their story, this week on HHH. Come meet the family and taste what they make at the Del Mar Wine + Food Festival Grand Tasting on Sept. 9.

The infamous breakdowns of Chernobyl in 1986 and Fukushima in 2011 represent our deepest fears around nuclear power, yet both disasters happened during peace time. In the early days of the war, Russian forces seized Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine. The site has come under repeated fire, prompting warnings in May this year from the UN nuclear agency that the world risked a "severe nuclear accident". And this isn't a new problem. Here we tell a story with its origins in the Vietnam War and how the threat of the world's first dirty bomb loomed large. The battle over nuclear energy first came to the attention of the West in 1975, as the North Vietnamese Army advanced on Saigon during the end days of the war. Most of the world was unaware at the time that the North Vietnamese were also advancing on a new breed of nuclear reactor, gifted to the South by the US government. Not only was it technology the North's Russian allies did not yet have, it was also a source of weapons-grade nuclear fuel. As a last resort, the US discussed bombing the facility, risking nuclear fallout rather than have the technology fall into Soviet hands. To avoid humanitarian and environmental disaster on a colossal scale, and despite having literally no military experience, a physicist from Idaho called Wally Hendrickson volunteered to be dropped into the front line to remove the fuel rods from the reactor before it was over run. Still alive and well, Wally's story is just as relevant today as it was 50 years ago. The setting may be different, but right now the fear of nuclear disaster hangs over us.
