Interview with the grievance studies hoaxers
In the second week of January (2019) I spoke with Dr. Peter Boghossian, Dr. James Lindsay, and Helen Pluckrose, authors of the infamous “Grievance studies” hoax papers. We discussed their motivations and the consequences of their actions. Portland State University is currently taking disciplinary actions against Dr. Boghossian, having found him guilty of academic misconduct for failing to have PSU’s Institutional Review Board approve his "studies" before they were conducted (!)

Sam Wilkin ─ History Repeating: Why Populists Rise and Governments Fall
Why have populist politicians and platforms like Donald Trump, the Brexit campaign, the left-right coalitions that govern Italy and Greece, and Mexico's AMLO, suddenly surged? Political risk consultant Sam Wilkin tackles the question in History Repeating, a new book praised as "magisterial" by BusinessLine. Business Standard said it was "packed with hilarious accounts of seminal historical events, some redoubtable women and men, and solid insight into political instability." Sam is a senior advisor to the geopolitical consultancy Oxford Analytica, where he previously served as associate director of the consultancy practice. He is also a senior advisor to Oxford Economics, where he previously served as head of business research, and a visiting fellow at Brown. He is the author or co-author of two other books and has produced two edited volumes.

Sylvia Ann Hewlett: "Executive Presence" | Talks at Google
Do you exude confidence and credibility? Can you command a room? Sylvia Ann Hewlett, one of the world's most influential business thinkers, cracks the code of Executive Presence (EP). You might have the qualifications to be considered for your dream job, but you won't get it unless you can signal that you're "leadership material" and that you "have what it takes." Professionals are judged on presence as well as performance. Using a wealth of data, Hewlett reveals EP to be a dynamic mix of three things: how you act (gravitas), how you speak (communication) and how you look (appearance). Sylvia Ann Hewlett is the founding president of the Center for Talent Innovation, a Manhattan-based think tank where she chairs a Task Force of 82 multinational companies focused on fully realizing the new streams of labor in the global marketplace.

Sebastian Junger: "Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging" | Talks at Google
Sebastian Junger visits Google to go into detail of combining history, psychology, and anthropology from his book, TRIBE. It explores what we can learn from tribal societies about loyalty, belonging, and the eternal human quest for meaning. It explains the irony that-for many veterans as well as civilians-war feels better than peace, adversity can turn out to be a blessing, and disasters are sometimes remembered more fondly than weddings or tropical vacations. TRIBE explains why we are stronger when we come together, and how that can be achieved even in today's divided world. Get the book here: https://goo.gl/ET6HBH Moderated by Jordan Thibodeau.

Redneck Revolt response to Alt-Right
This is our response to a video spread by Milo Yiannopoulos: "Asian Trump Supporter Smashes Liberals and Identity Politics". Website: redneckrevolt.org Facebook: @RedneckRevolt --- What is Redneck Revolt? The history of the white working class is one full of resistance, collectively and individually, against the rich elite that hold power over all of our lives. From massive armed uprisings like the Battle of Blair Mountain in 1921, to the resistance to coal mining in predominately white rural Appalachia today, white working people have been in conflict with those that uphold predatory economic, political, and social systems. The history of the white working class is also one filled with collaboration with those same rich elite power holders. White working people have played the role of footsoldiers for the political and economic elite, participating in genocide, enslavement of other peoples, and overall protectors of the ruling class. White working class participation in state and paramilitary organizations and formations like the Ku Klux Klan, the Minutemen, the U.S. Armed Forces, and the Council of Conservative Citizens has undermined the struggle for freedom among all people. It is with these conflicting histories in mind that the authors of this blog hope to incite a movement amongst white working people that works toward the total liberation of all working people, regardless of skin color, religious background, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, or any other division that bosses and politicians have used to fragment movements for social, political, and economic freedom. Why the term redneck? The history of the term redneck is long and complex. One of the earliest recorded uses of the term comes from the 1890’s, and refers to rednecks as “poorer inhabitants of the rural districts…men who work in the field, as a matter of course, generally have their skin burned red by the sun, and especially is this true of the back of their necks”. In 1921, the term became synonymous with armed insurrection against the state, as members of the United Mine Workers of America tied red bandanas around their necks during the Battle of Blair Mountain, a two week long armed labor uprising in the coalfields of West Virginia. Today, the term redneck has taken on a demeaning connotation, primarily among upper class urban liberals who have gone out of their way to dehumanize white working class and poor people. Terms like “white trash” have come to signify the view among these same upper class liberals of poor rural whites. To us, the term redneck is a term that signifies a pride in our class as well as a pride in resistance to bosses, politicians, and all those that protect domination and tyranny. Why would whites be opposed to white supremacy? White supremacy is a system of violence and power that ensures that political, economic, and social power is withheld from people who aren’t white. As white working class people, we have all benefited to a certain extent from the system of white supremacy that exists within the United States. However, this same system, and our participation within it, have also ensured that white working class people will stay poor and also relatively powerless in this society. The greatest threat to those that pull the political and economic strings in this society is a unified resistance movement among poor and working class people. The vast majority of those that live in the United States, have relatively no power over the decisions and conditions that affect our lives. The overwhelming majority of those that live in the U.S. are poor or working class. We are the ones that see our paychecks (if we happen to even get one) gutted, our pensions and benefits dry up, our communities destroyed by drug abuse and poverty related crimes, and our entire lives spent struggling to just survive. At moments that white working people have looked beyond their skin color and have worked alongside movements of poor and working class people of other races, the power of the ruling elite has become the most threatened. It is when the white working class has started to view itself in terms of class and not race, that liberation has waited just around the corner. White supremacy is a system that white working people have helped protect, but it is also a tool against us. Our allegiance to a politics of white racism has allowed the rich to continue to hold onto power. If we, as white working class people, want to see a reality of political, social, and economic freedom, REAL freedom, then we must directly contribute to a struggle against all oppression, especially white supremacy.

ch 16) A Peoples War
chapter 16: A People's History (Of The United States) Howard Zinn. ~ Chapter 16, "A People's War?", covers World War II, opposition to it, and the effects of the war on the people. Zinn, a veteran of the war himself, notes that "it was the most popular war the US ever fought," [p104] but states that this support may have been manufactured through the institutions of American society. He cites various instances of opposition to fighting (in some cases greater than those during World War I) as proof. Zinn also argues that the US's true intention was not fighting against systematic racism, since the US had this itself, such as with the Jim Crow laws (leading to opposition to the war from African-Americans). Another argument made by Zinn is that the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were not necessary, as the U.S. government had already known that the Japanese were considering surrender beforehand. Other subjects from WWII covered include Japanese American internment and the bombing of Dresden. The chapter continues into the Cold War, which Zinn writes was used by the U.S. government to increase control over the American people (for instance, eliminating such radical elements as the Communist Party) and at the same time create a state of permanent war, which allowed for the creation of the military-industrial complex. Zinn believes this was possible because both conservatives and liberals willingly worked together in the name of anti-Communism. Also covered is US involvement in the Greek Civil War, the Korean War, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, and the Marshall Plan.

Joseph Stiglitz '64: "Globalism and Its Discontents: Point/Counterpoint with Ilan Stavans"
The "Globalism and Its Discontents: Point/Counterpoint" conversation series features Amherst College professor, and host of NEPR's In Contrast, Ilan Stavans and a guest engaging in thoughtful discussion and attempting to bridge the ideological divide growing in our nation. The rise of populism worldwide today, personified by Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, is a fierce reaction to globalism policies of the past few decades. Anti-immigration movements in Europe and the United States; assaults on free speech; racial profiling; polarized politics; intolerance for gender, economic and linguistic diversity; the building of walls and the renegotiation of international trade treaties; the tension between rural and urban communities; and the questioning of the basic tenets of pluralism are some of the symptoms. Democracy itself might be at peril. Joseph E. Stiglitz is an American economist and a professor at Columbia University. He is also the co-chair of the High-Level Expert Group on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and the Chief Economist of the Roosevelt Institute. A recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences (2001) and the John Bates Clark Medal (1979), he is a former senior vice president and chief economist of the World Bank and a former member and chairman of the (U.S. president's) Council of Economic Advisers. In 2000, Stiglitz founded the Initiative for Policy Dialogue, a think tank on international development based at Columbia University. He has been a member of the Columbia faculty since 2001 and received that university's highest academic rank (university professor) in 2003. In 2011 Stiglitz was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. Known for his pioneering work on asymmetric information, Stiglitz focuses on income distribution, risk, corporate governance, public policy, macroeconomics and globalization. He is the author of numerous books, several of them best-sellers. His most recent titles are Globalization and Its Discontents Revisited, The Euro, Rewriting the Rules of the American Economy and The Great Divide.

U.S Foreign Policy in the Middle East (1953 - 2003) | Middle East Podcast with Roy Casagranda #56
Roy Casagranda joins us today to discuss U.S foreign policy in the Middle East from 1953 - 2003 in this Middle East Podcast. iTunes:https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/u-s-foreign-policy-in-iran-iraq-1953-iranian-coup-to/id1433981364?i=1000429640052&mt=2 U.S foreign policy in the Middle East is a very perplexing subject. The hardest thing to do when picking a place to start in a Middle East Podcast is that there is no correct point. U.S foreign policy in the Mid East technically starts back in the 1700s with the Barbary Pirates, however, on today’s Middle East Podcast we give a brief summary of British Oil interest in Iran and jump into when U.S foreign policy in the Mid East really begins. Right after WW2 Middle East, foreign policy was resolved around stopping the soviet union and oil interest. Roy Casagranda shares his knowledge on the Eisenhower Doctrine and how U.S foreign policy in the Middle East after the war was to remove the British and the French from the Middle East. The goal was to replace them. We talk about the U.S coup over the Iranian democracy and went into how the U.S and British installed the Shah of Iran in this Middle East Podcast. We then jump into how Middle East foreign policy started the Iranian Revolution and what eventually led to the Iran-Iraq War. We then jump into U.S foreign policy in the Mid East after the Iran-Iraq war. In this Middle East Podcast, we start talking about what eventually led to the Operation Desert Storm. And from there we start talking about the sanctions in Iraq. This is one of the best Middle East Podcast out there, so make sure you subscribe for more. Roy Casagranda was a terrific guest. His knowledge of Middle East foreign policy always makes for a discussion and Middle East history Podcast. Please check out Roy Casagranda at the Austin School page.

Looking to the past for clues on the future of energy
An engineer and a historian discuss how technology and human behavior are shaping the sustainable energy revolution. In the first in a series of events exploring the intersection of engineering and humanities perspectives on common themes, Stanford faculty members John O. Dabiri, professor of civil and environmental engineering and of mechanical engineering, and Ian Morris, professor of classics, engaged in a moderated discussion about the future of sustainable energy. The two spoke at length about their different viewpoints on a central question: What can we expect the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy to look like in light of new technologies and age-old human behavior? Morris, whose most recent book explored the role of energy in shaping inequality and violence over the past 20,000 years, said that the three critical periods of energy transition – from foraging to farming to fossil fuel societies – have resembled the messy process of natural selection. “Changing our behavior is a process driven by the same forces that drive biological evolution,” he said. “We respond positively to things that allow us to do what we want to do in an easier way without taking too many risks. So if you have electric cars that cost less and run on less than internal combustion engines, then people will buy them. If you don’t, they won’t.” Dabiri, whose research focuses on new ways to capture wind energy, said that engineers should think a little more about the context of their work – how renewable energy solutions will look different in Palo Alto than they will in Mumbai – as well as how a deeper understanding of human nature could help motivate people to change their behavior. “We often as engineers come in to the problem thinking if we come up with a cool enough gadget, people will flock to it. That might be true of the iPhone,” he said. “Until we come up with the iPhone equivalent for climate change, for solar energy, for wind energy, it’s going to be an uphill battle for massive adoption of these technologies.”

Why isn't my professor black? UCL panel discussion
There are just 85 black professors out of 18,510 in the UK and the number has barely changed in eight years. The percent of black professors (0.4%) shows a striking disparity with the proportion of black students, which has increased steadily each year and now stands at 6%. What does it mean when the generation that produces knowledge is so unrepresentative of the generation that consumes it? This panel debate will be chaired by Professor Michael Arthur, UCL President and Provost. It will aim to ask difficult questions and explore even more challenging solutions. Speakers: Professor Michael Arthur, Chair, UCL President and Provost Dr William Ackah, Panel Member, Birkbeck, University of London Dr Lisa Amanda Palmer, Panel Member, Newman University Dr Shirley Tate, Panel Member, University of Leeds Dr Nathaniel Adam Tobias C̶o̶l̶e̶m̶a̶n̶, Panel Member, UCL Deborah Gabriel, Panel Member, Founder and CEO of Black British Academics Further info: http://events.ucl.ac.uk/event/event:xe-hobmesz1-pt3gqx/why-isnt-my-professor-black

Roger Cohen ─ American Fracture: The End of the American Century and a Shared American Language
Here’s one voice from Trump country: "People have to choose between heating their homes, buying food or buying health care and you want them to worry about the survival of the planet or transgender stuff? I respect business and I distrust government. That’s the American way. I don’t want illegal immigrants taking our jobs. I don’t like liberals who shop at Whole Foods talking down their noses at me because I shop at Wal-Mart. White lives matter, too, you know. We lost our discipline and our moral code in this country. So we need honest Trump to shake things up." Honest Trump? Yes, there are now two definitions of truth in the United States. The first is that a truthful statement is one that conforms to facts. By that standard, President Trump is a serial liar. The second is that truth is “telling it like it is,” or speaking in a direct, unvarnished way without regard to political correctness. By this measure, for his supporters, Trump remains the most honest president ever. America needs the conversations it’s not having. In part it’s not having them because it’s difficult even to agree on language any longer. Signal and noise can no longer be distinguished. This is the chasm to which Fox News, herd-reinforcing social media algorithms, bots and trolls, Republican debunking of reason and science, the money of Koch and Mercer (and, yes, billionaire Democrats too), liberal self-obsession, rightist racism, and spreading technological autism have ushered us. The structures that helped preserve actual community, dignity and power among working-class people—labor unions—have been systematically eroded. Main Street, having given way to the shopping and strip mall, is dead in most places. Absent anything else, blue-collar whites decided to unify around whiteness, and Trump became their mouthpiece. Trump, in turn, stirring up division rather than trying to overcome it, choosing to lead the mob rather than his country, has taken a sledgehammer to America's values, to its responsibilities, and to the anchors of its prosperity in the post-war world. Dishonoring the United States, he has brought down the curtain on the American century. This event is co-sponsored by the CareerLAB

Beshara Doumani ─ Family Life in the Ottoman Mediterranean: A Social History
Skip ahead to main speaker at 2:04 Introduction by Shahzad Bashir, Aga Khan Professor of Islamic Humanities, Professor of Religious Studies, Brown University Comments by David Sabean,* Henry J. Bruman Professor of German History at the University of California, Los Angeles, and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Cosponsored by the department of History Middle East Studies Director Beshara Doumani introduces his new book, "Family Life in the Ottoman Mediterranean: A Social History." Cambridge University Press, 2017. Abstract: In writings about Islam, women and modernity in the Middle East, family and religion are frequently invoked but rarely historicized. Based on a wide range of local sources spanning two centuries (1660-1860), Beshara Doumani argues that there is no such thing as a typical Muslim or Arab family type that is so central to Orientalist, nationalist, and Islamist political imaginations. Rather, one finds dramatic regional differences, even within the same cultural zone, in the ways that family was understood, organized, and reproduced. In his comparative examination of the property devolution strategies and gender regimes in the context of local political economies, Doumani offers a groundbreaking examination of the stories and priorities of ordinary people and how they shaped the making of the modern Middle East. Beshara Doumani is a professor of history and director of Middle East Studies at Brown University. His research focuses on groups, places, and time periods marginalized by mainstream scholarship on the early modern and modern Middle East. He also writes on the topics of displacement, academic freedom, politics of knowledge production, and the Palestinian condition. His books include Family Life in the Ottoman Mediterranean: A Social History, Rediscovering Palestine: Merchants and Peasants in Jabal Nablus, 1700-1900, Academic Freedom After September 11 (editor), and Family History in the Middle East: Household, Property and Gender (editor). He is the editor of a book series, New Directions in Palestinian Studies, with the University of California Press.

This is Why Bitcoin Will Work
Subscribe to stay up to date with the latest videos ► https://www.sbry.co/suBiH Episode 18 - This is Why Bitcoin Will Work Porter and Buck have a laugh over the recent news of Chase’s Jamie Dimon trying to convince the world that Bitcoin is a fraud. They reveal the real reason behind Dimon’s panic, and why Bitcoin and blockchain technology is one of the most significant risks central banks will face in the near term. Porter and Buck welcome David Tice, President of Tice Capital and one of Wall Street’s most prolific Bears. David tells Porter that he’s singing a slightly different tune recently after reading Steve Sjuggerud’s Melt-Up thesis. Porter asks David about the toxic stew of debt from reckless student, corporate, and auto loans…and shares the biggest prediction he’s been wrong about. David and Porter both give you their “bear market survival plan” for when this historic bull market finally takes a break. You’ll learn what to own, what to avoid, and how to come out unscathed in the next market downturn. Porter points out that the recent Toys R Us bankruptcy could be the canary in the coalmine that leads to a bond market reckoning. Buck channels “Arianna” and “Bill” for a timely response to a listener’s question.
