Women's rights undermined in South Africa
 
05:00
The informal settlement of Masakhane in Mpumalanga Province in South Africa is located less than 500 metres away from the coal-fired Duvha power station. The population of Masakhane is highly affected by the pollution and environmental damage caused by the power station. Before the mining and power station developments, families had access to and control over the land, even if they did not own it. Farming used to be the main source of livelihood for the majority of the population of Masakhane. Today, mining companies and investors own most of the land, and as a direct consequence people have lost a lot of their farming and grazing land. This video shows testimonies of victims and their efforts to turn the tide.

South Africa Women Miners: Over 40,000 Women Work in the Industry
 
02:26
There are over 40,000 women working in South Africa's mining sector. Many of them are in underground occupations in platinum and gold mines. Some would argue that their jobs are dangerous, but as you're about to see in this report from Andrew Thompson, the bottomline for them, is that it puts food on the tables.

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 (!)

Sebastian Junger: "Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging" | Talks at Google
 
01:04:48
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.

Chatham House | Mine Clearance, Conservation, and Economic Development

Angola has some of the world’s most important remaining wilderness, including the tributary system for the unique Okavango Delta, and the country has the potential to host one of the most diverse mammal populations on the continent. However, the presence of landmines and remnants of the civil war render large areas of the country unsafe for both animals, and the local people whose ability to derive a sustainable livelihood from their natural environment is fundamental to its protection.

The ambition to pursue conservation-based economic development and the protection of the region’s vital biodiversity and conservation will be possible only if this negative trend of mine clearance financing is reversed.

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.

On August 5, 2018, the New York Times Magazine published a special issue devoted entirely to global warming. Writer Nathaniel Rich investigates what we understood about climate change in the 1980s, how close we came to taking national action, and why that effort failed, with enormous consequences since. The magazine also includes an aerial photo and video essay on climate-change impacts across the globe by photographer George Steinmetz. The project was made possible with the support of the Pulitzer Center. Please join us on Monday, September 10 at 5:30 p.m. for presentations by Nathaniel and George followed by a panel discussion with the Pulitzer Center’s Executive Director, Jon Sawyer, and moderated by Dr. Anthony Leiserowitz, Director of the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication.

Money as a Democratic Medium | The Public and its Money Problems
 
01:42:40
The title of this panel is a variation on John Dewey’s 1927 book “The Public and Its Problems” in order to direct attention to the political turmoil that is connected to the logic of capitalism. As it is less and less tenable for progressive analyses to evade questions of money and finance, the question is increasingly what forms such politicization should or can take. Among the more prominent perspectives to have emerged in recent years is a neo-chartalism that emphasizes the role of public authority in the production of money and that views the most troubling policies of the neoliberal era as resulting from a misunderstanding of the ontology of money (for instance, political anxiety around deficits is seen to derive from the failure to appreciate that money is an accounting convention rather than a metallic substance). This panel will offer a number of sympathetic but critical engagements with the chartalist provocation, following its lead in foregrounding the question of the relationship between money and the public while exploring this connection through a series of different lenses.

Redneck Revolt response to Alt-Right
 
06:56
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.

Joseph Stiglitz '64: "Globalism and Its Discontents: Point/Counterpoint with Ilan Stavans"
 
01:21:24
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.

Inequality and Worker Rights: Where do we go from here?
 
01:03:02
The crisis of inequality is arguably one of the greatest social and economic issues facing the United States today. In this webcast, representatives of The Worker Institute at Cornell examine the ways in which worker rights and collective representation impact inequality and explore innovative solutions developed by the labor movement to solve this growing crisis. The presenters address the role that industrial and labor relations has historically had in reducing inequality and how changes in the country’s collective bargaining system can be linked to the extreme levels of inequality we see today. They also share new ways in which low-wage workers are organizing to address inequality and look at two specific examples: Caring Across Generations, a campaign that works to expand access to in-home care while creating living wage jobs for care workers; and Fight for 15, a fast food worker-led movement to raise the national minimum wage to $15 an hour. Presenters: Lara Skinner, Associate Director of The Worker Institute at Cornell Shannon Gleeson, Associate Professor of Labor Relations, Law & History Additional perspectives by: Sarita Gupta, Executive Director of Jobs With Justice and the Co-Director of Caring Across Generations Kendall Fells, SEIU National Coordinator and President of Fast Food Forward Lou Jean Fleron, Emeritus Extension Faculty (Cornell ILR) and Director of the High Road program in Buffalo

Why isn't my professor black? UCL panel discussion
 
02:00:37
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%.

History of U.S Foreign Policy in the Middle East | Roy Casagranda on Iraq & Iran
 
01:49:58
Roy Casagranda joins us today to discuss U.S foreign policy in the Middle East from 1953 - 2003 in this Middle East Podcast. 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.

Beshara Doumani ─ Family Life in the Ottoman Mediterranean: A Social History
 
01:54:28
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.

Looking to the past for clues on the future of energy
 
01:15:04
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.”
