This week, host Megan Cattel speaks to science fiction and fantasy translator, Emily Xueni Jin, on the art of translation and the rise of Chinese science fiction.During the course of this discussion, Emily explains her process of translating work, and the special relationship she develops to writers who are bilingual themselves. The result is often a collaborative process, as Emily herself explains, “In a way, you basically develop a voice for them in the English language. Which they, in turn, being bilingual themselves, come to inhabit as well.”Megan and Emily also discuss the essentialization of Chinese science fiction, where writers are often expected to answer questions on Chinese political issues completely unrelated to their work. As Emily points out in the discussion, her community of Chinese science fiction writers are usually just "sci-fi nerds," telling universal truths about the human condition.This is a fascinating conversation about the power of language and the role of a translator, not merely to translate words, but as a mediator between cultures.About Emily Xueni Jin: an essayist, science fiction and fantasy translator, translating both from Chinese to English and the other way around. She graduated from Wellesley College in 2017, and she is currently a PhD candidate in East Asian Languages and Literature at Yale University. Her most recent Chinese to English translations can be found in “The Way Spring Arrives and Other Stories”, the first Chinese speculative fiction anthology in translation produced by female and non-binary creators, and “AI2041: Ten Visions for Our Future”, a collection of science fiction and essays cowritten by Dr. Kaifu Lee and Chen Qiufan. She's currently a columnist for Sixth Tone.
Princeton professor and author Keith Whittington joins Tim to talk about the current state of free speech, or not-so-free-speech on the American college campus. Keith has a long resume of accomplishments, including the authoring of the award-winning book, “Speak Freely: Why Universities Must Defend Free Speech.” But in this episode, we talk about Keith's role in the formation of a new and already growing organization that champions freedom of speech called the Academic Freedom Alliance (AFA). https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/shapingopinion/Encore_-_How_Free_is_Speech_on_Americas_College_Campus.mp3 There is a growing fear on college campuses among professors and instructors that they could say or do the smallest thing and it could ruin their careers. They could be canceled for using the wrong story or word to illustrate a point while teaching a class. Something they say or do could be perceived by some students as a triggering factor – something that could trigger some negative emotion that hinders learning. If you follow the news, or just do a quick Google search, you'll find stories where educators, or the colleges themselves, were called out by students for perceived lack of sensitivity to certain issues. It's stories like those that have created a growing concern among educators that something has to be done to turn the tide. They're concerned that students and others may have the wrong idea about what a college education is supposed to be about. That college is a place to challenge yourself and be challenged. To investigate, analyze and expose yourself to different ways of thinking, diverse schools of thought. And above all, not to fear such exposure or see it as something to be protected from. It's with this in mind, that Professor Keith Whittington of Princeton, and more than 200 other scholars from across America decided to form the AFA. Keith says the AFA is dedicated to helping college educators, quote – “speak, instruct, and publish without fear of sanction, bullying, punishment or persecution.” Links Keith Whittington's Princeton Home Page The Academic Freedom Alliance: A Q&A with Keith Whittington, Academe Blog Speak Freely: Why Universities Must Defend Free Speech, by Keith Whittington (Barnes & Noble) Fresh Hope for Campus Free Speech, New York Post/AP About this Episode's Guest Keith Whittington Keith E.

If you are into stories of success and what it takes to be the best, you will sometimes here someone quote a study about the importance of goal setting. The study happened at Yale University in 1953. You should NOT pay attention to that study and this episode begins with the reason why.. https://www.fastcompany.com/27953/if-your-goal-success-dont-consult-these-gurus People may think they know what causes weight gain and weight loss – but what people think is often wrong according to my guest Herman Pontzer. He is one of the foremost researchers in the area of human metabolism and author of the book Burn: New Research Blows the Lid Off How We Really Burn Calories, Lose Weight, and Stay Healthy (https://amzn.to/3cdjiOQ). Herman joins me to explain how body weight works and why some people really are naturally thin while others seem destined to struggle with weight. He also explains why the role of exercise is often misunderstood when it comes to losing weight. Certainly, on the surface, it seems that war is totally cruel and senseless. Still, for centuries, humans have fought and killed each other in war. And for what? There is no country or civilization that has ever gone to war without doing great harm to itself. And yet war persists all over the world and throughout history. To get a better understanding of this, I invite you to listen to my guest Mike Martin, visiting research fellow at the Department of War Studies, King's College in London and author of the book, Why We Fight (https://amzn.to/3cf17s2) To be a champion at anything, you need to have talent and ability. However, it takes more than that. In fact, no champion in sports or music – or anything has made it to the top of their game without following two simple rules.

Ralph welcomes economist, attorney, and investigative journalist, James Henry for his expert take on what is going on in the banking system and what we can do to keep it from blowing up. And Professor and former Nader's Raider, Alison Dundes Renteln, takes on the commercialization of our universities in her book “The Ethical University: Transforming Higher Education.”James Henry is a leading economist, attorney, consultant, and investigative journalist, who has written and spoken widely on the problems of tax justice and development finance. He is a lecturer and Global Justice Fellow at Yale University.The first thing we learn from the history of banking crises in the United States is that banks are really the Achilles heel of capitalism. This keeps happening. And we got used to a period when banking crises— we thought— had been taken care of, that we could just assume that someone in the Fed, or in the US Treasury, or regulators at the global level would understand all this stuff and they would reform the system.James HenryAlison Dundes Renteln is a Professor of Political Science and Anthropology at the University of Southern California where she teaches Law and Public Policy with an emphasis on international law and human rights. She is co-editor, with Wanda Teays, of The Ethical University: Transforming Higher Education.We really should be thinking about how to make universities a place for learning, and the production of knowledge, and making the world a better place. And the book is really an attempt to argue for reimagining universities so we return to the mission of universities, which is not to promote future corporate leaders… but to produce people who will contribute in many different ways in society.Alison Dundes RentelnIt's really quite remarkable that in an institution that's supposed to be devoted to democratic deliberation, intellectual life, justice, opportunity broadly defined, that the decisions are made by the administrators and the board of trustees— largely in secret.Ralph Nader Get full access to Ralph Nader Radio Hour at www.ralphnaderradiohour.com/subscribe
On episode 8, season 27 of The Bachelor, contestant Ariel Frenkel, who hails from a Ukrainian Jewish immigrant family in New York, is seen leading all-American Bachelor Zach Shallcross around New York City, feeding him cow tongue sandwiches and gefilte fish from Sarge's Deli and telling him her family's story of fleeing the Soviet Union. Such overt references to Jewishness are unprecedented on the franchise; though the show has featured a few Jewish leads, it tends to downplay contestants' references to their minority identities and center stories of people using their Christian values to guide them toward love. On this episode of On the Nose, associate editor Mari Cohen and fellow Dahlia Krutkovich join Hannah Srajer, an organizer and PhD candidate in history at Yale University, and Xandra Ellin, a producer at Pineapple Street Studios, to talk about Frenkel's improbable run on the show. They discuss how the portrayal of Frenkel's as an exotic other illuminates the show's identification with white Christian patriarchy, why the Jewishness of another contestant involved in a racist scandal flew under the radar, and what to make of a pro-Israel article Frenkel published in 2014.

The Past, the Promise, the Presidency
Oil runs the world. From our cars to our houses, most of us can't live without it. From the 1940s to the 1960s, though, oil played another specific role as a central part of conflict and diplomacy during the Cold War. It was during this era that Iran developed into the world's first “petro-state”: a nation whose state revenue, industrializing economy, military, and growing middle class all depended on the growth of the oil industry. This all occurred alongside major Cold War developments, including the regime of the Iranian shah, the coup d'etat of 1953, and more. Centering our analyses of these Cold War moments around the role of petroleum casts the histories of the Iranian and US governments in an entirely new light. Joining our conversation this week is Dr. Gregory Brew, a leading expert on the relationship between Iran, the US, and oil during the Cold War.Gregory Brew is a historian and author specializing in U.S. foreign relations, oil, Iran, and the modern Middle East. He has authored two books on the Iranian “petro-state” and contributed to numerous peer reviewed publications. His work explores the connections between the formation of a global oil economy, the geopolitics of the Cold War, and the contemporary energy transition. After receiving his doctorate from Georgetown University in June 2018, he served as a post-doctoral fellow at the Jackson School for Global Affairs at Yale University from 2021-2023. Currently, Dr. Brew is an Analyst at Eurasia Group, covering energy and Iran.He is the author of The Struggle for Iran: Oil, Autocracy, and the Cold War, 1951–1954 and Petroleum and Progress in Iran: Oil, Development, and the Cold War.Follow him on Twitter @gbrew24 and visit his website gregorybrew.com.

Lisa Sun is Founder & CEO of GRAVITAS, a company whose origin story dates back to Lisa's first professional review: that she “lacked gravitas” and “should go buy a new dress, big jewelry, and great shoes.” Realizing the transformative power that clothing can have, Lisa secured the patent on building shapewear into dresses and launched Gravitas as a Confidence Company that offers innovative apparel and styling solutions designed to makeover women from the inside-out. Prior to founding Gravitas, Lisa spent 11 years at McKinsey & Company where she advised leading luxury, fashion, and beauty brands globally on strategic and operational issues. Lisa graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Yale University with distinction in Biology and Political Science.

She also explains how she founded Gravitas to catalyze confidence and started out by making clothing with shapewear built in. Here is what to expect on this week's show: - Why believing in yourself is the foundation for achieving success. - How self-worth is an internal process, not an external one. - The importance of using experiences to inform your company. - Why it is important to recognize our own strengths, be kind to ourselves, and find a support group to help us through difficult times. Quotes: "Dumbo did not need a feather to fly, but it reminded him that he could." - Lisa Sun "Not every journey is just like a linear thing... it's not all roses. Everybody hears about the things that come out and make you an instant billionaire, but that's very rare, and it usually happens to men... you should know what you're getting into." – Jennifer Justice "You don't get written about until you've succeeded, okay? And we never read about the 90% plus of women entrepreneurs who every single day feel alone, especially if you don't have a co-founder, and the burden is solely on you." - Lisa Sun “I tied so much of myself worth to certain metrics…That the sales target, the number, all of these things, I really tied up my self-worth with these external benchmarks... I realized that I could tie my self-worth to the quality of my character... I had to take stock of these other metrics that are not public facing. There's no award documenting your success for yourself." – Lisa Sun Lisa's Book: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/731156/gravitas-by-lisa-sun/ Gravitas: https://gravitasnewyork.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Marc Glickman is an actuary and long-term care insurance expert. He is the founder and CEO of BuddyIns, a nationwide community of long-term care insurance experts who are dedicated to helping individuals and families find the best plan to meet their care needs. Marc previously served as the Chief Sales Officer of LifeCare Assurance Company, a firm he worked with for over 11 years before founding BuddyIns in 2019. In addition to his work at BuddyIns, Marc serves as a member of the Board of Advisors for CLTC. He holds an Economics degree from Yale University and is a designated Fellow of the Society of Actuaries. Marc joins me today to discuss and clarify the misconceptions about long-term care planning and insurance. He describes why long-term care services have greater inflation than other products and how financial advisors can approach a conversation with a client about policies. He discusses why financial advisors should work with long-term care specialists. He also explains how offering long-term care planning to clients can open up generational wealth planning opportunities for financial advisors and highlights why long-term care planning is one of the best business relationship-building tools for a financial advisor. “Think of a long-term care policy as a gift to your family. I bought my policy as a gift to my wife, who was happy to know that if something happens to me, she will not feel burdened with providing care for me.” - Marc Glickman This week on The Model FA Podcast: Marc's background and how he began his career in long-term care planning and insurance Long-term care planning and insurance and its role in a general financial plan How unpaid long-term caregiving impacts families The best time to talk to a client about long-term care insurance policies How to talk to a client who's not open to long-term care Funding mechanisms for long-term care services and policies Planning for insurance premiums with clients living on a fixed income The likelihood of an individual using their long-term care policy How a client can benefit from a long-term care plan if they don't get to use it How offering long-term care products can help financial advisors grow their businesses Resources Mentioned: Book: The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life by Alice Schroeder Our Favorite Quotes: “When you're properly insured, you get an insulation and a sense of fearlessness that no matter what happens, everyone around you is taken care of. It's a rewarding feeling.” - David DeCelle “Not implementing long-term care planning throughout your client relationships makes you grossly under-insured in your own book of business. Have these conversations; otherwise, it's a business risk for you in the long run.” - David DeCelle “One out of two people will have an extended care event that will last up to 90 days. It's definitely something worth planning for.” - Marc Glickman Connect with Marc Glickman: BuddyIns BuddyIns Insurance Service on LinkedIn BuddyIns Insurance Services on Facebook BuddyIns Insurance Services on YouTube Marc Glickman on LinkedIn Email: Marc@BuddyIns.com About the Model FA Podcast The Model FA podcast is a show for fiduciary financial advisors.

How can we create a meaningful life in a self-centered world? Have our societal notions of success misled us? How does connection underpin our sense of meaning? What practical skills do we need to understand other humans? And what do morals and values have to do with any of this? A few years ago, David Brooks, columnist & cultural commentator, experienced deep personal loss. He suddenly found himself emotionally at sea. As he looked for ways to keep his head afloat, he realized he wasn't alone; that somehow many Americans had become disconnected from their families or beliefs or way of life. Brooks saw an America drifting from its values and morals, to the point that the basics of human relations were out of reach. Instead of moralizing, Brooks set out on a journey to find people who are truly connected and anchored, and to learn what they do and how they do it. In this episode, the Surgeon General and David Brooks dig into deep questions. In a world that can feel uncertain and pressured, this episode is a pause to ask what stories we tell, about ourselves and the world, and to think about what gives each of us a sense of meaning in our lives. Email us at email@example.com with your feedback & ideas. (03:33) Why is America in a state of emotional pain? (00:08) Can we even talk about morals, values, and social skills? (11:38) People or government: where can we find moral support? (14:06) Can AI provide emotional sustenance for humans? (17:56) How can parents help kids build a moral foundation? (21:16) Is being social a teachable skill? (25:03) What is the “moral and relational hunger” that fascinates David Brooks? (27:52) David Brooks' personal quest to better relate to people. (29:30) Can the pressure of striving de-humanize us? (31:25) How can we be authentic in a world of likes and clicks? (35:06) How do external notions of “success” shape us? (38:41) What is the story of the Weavers? (42:38) How can we build up the Weaver movement? (45:12) How do we expand positive social norms? (48:45) How's your social life? What keeps you from hosting gatherings? (55:47) Can we connect across difference? (01:01:13) Where does David Brooks find hope? (01:04:12) Is faith a source of inspiration for David Brooks?

Sunita Puri is a Palliative Medicine physician and author of the incredible book That Good Night: Life and Medicine in the Eleventh Hour, a critically-acclaimed literary memoir examining her journey to the practice of palliative medicine, and her quest to help patients and families redefine what it means to live and die well in the face of serious illness. In this episode, she explores her experiences in palliative medicine, the role of spirituality and the sacred practice of accompanying someone in their pain and suffering, what it means to have a good death, and so much more. Just like in her writing and in her practice as a palliative physician, Sunita brings so much wisdom, warmth and insight to our conversation. About the guestDr. Sunita Puri is the Program Director of the Hospice and Palliative Medicine fellowship at the University of Massachusetts, where she is also an Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine. She completed medical school and residency training in internal medicine at the University of California San Francisco followed by a fellowship in Hospice and Palliative Medicine at Stanford.

She and her work have been featured in the Atlantic, People Magazine, PBS' Christian Amanpour Show, NPR, the Guardian, BBC, India Today, and Literary Hub. She is passionate about the ways that the precise and compassionate use of language can empower patients and physicians to have the right conversations about living and dying. Episode ResourcesI HIGHLY recommend buying her book That Good Night: Life and Medicine in the Eleventh Hour. Other guests who've explored aspects of this topic include Dr. BJ Miller and Social Workers Rachel Rusch and Rachel-Carnahan Metzger.Jump Straight Into It(14:00) – Sunita talks about how in her training she always gravitated towards “the why” – why is a particular intervention being given? To what end?(33:15) – Sunita explores the importance of showing up as your authentic self – whether you're the physician, a family member or a friend. It's not about a perfect phrase or perfect act, it's about showing up as you.(44:00) - Sunita explores the importance of listening versus talking when accompanying someone who's in pain or suffering. Recognizing the paternalistic approach of fix-it when it comes to patient's emotions.Podcast Merch AlertYou asked, I answered.

Skull and Bones has been shrouded in mystery ever since it was founded nearly two centuries ago now, back in 1832. All members take an oath promising NEVER to reveal the group's activities and secrets. And that oath is taken seriously. According to the traditional narrative, Skull and Bones was founded by a group of Yale juniors who were either angry over that year's honor society elections or inspired by occult European secret societies, or perhaps both. Is this group a nefarious organization connected to some sort of Illuminati plan to take over the world? Or, is it akin to a college fraternity? Nothing more than a place to network with rich and connected families who can greatly help your career aspirations once you graduate from Yale? Or an organization to be feared?

PrepWell Podcast with Phil Black
In this episode, I discuss 4 strategies that a student can adopt to secure a leadership position during high school. With rampant grade inflation, watered-down course rigor, optional SAT/ACT tests, and ChatGPT-written college essays and teacher letters of recommendation, college admissions officers are desperate for something to help them differentiate among a sea of similar-sounding students. Once institutional priorities have been met (e.g. DEI, athletes, children of donors, etc.), what else will help colleges separate the wheat from the chaff? My answer: "leadership". Leadership is becoming a hot new "theme" in many applications. Listen to this episode to learn the best strategies to secure legitimate leadership positions that colleges will appreciate.

In this episode I have an open and real discussion with Michael Williams (He/Him) who is a board-certified Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN). As an Afro-Latino bilingual (English, Spanish) APRN specializing in Internal Medicine and HIV-PrEP, he has cared for a culturally and socio-economic diverse patient population for over six years. Along with clinical practice, Michael has been a clinical instructor at several institutions- Yale University, Texas State University, and Concordia University: Texas. He is also a Doctorate of Nurse Practitioner student at Louise Herrington School of Nursing: Baylor University. Michael credits his love for medicine to growing up in New York City and his parents. His upbringing exposed him to many healthcare challenges and obstacles to care firsthand. Being of Panamanian descent allowed him to see the importance of understanding culture and its impact on delivering care. These experiences led him to obtain the Bachelor of Science in Nursing ‘09 and Master of Science in Nursing ‘16 degrees at the University of Tampa. As a first-generation college graduate, he and four friends initiated an endowment scholarship for first-generation college students at their alma mater.Michael believes community care is essential to the advancement of society. The philosophy guiding his practice is to provide the highest level of care through meaningful and collaborative relationships with all community members. He actively participates in various community events: speaker on health-related topics, health fairs, 5k to half marathon races, and volunteering at the local food bank. He has also authored peer-reviewed poems related to social issues in the community. Michael firmly believes that improving healthcare outcomes begins with educating and empowering the community that he serves.Join the conversation by sending comments or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
