    Inciting Incident #10 - Campus Culture, RE: Jonathan Haidt, Sam Harris

    in Film

    NOTE: Technical difficulties in the first fifteen minutes. Apologies in advance.

    Our topic will revolve around the recent dramatic shift in campus culture. Ideas we're going to discuss are sort of an extension on our PC discussions, but specifically focusing on what's going on with college campuses, especially on how someone can risk losing their job by saying something or using a word. This will be a follow-up to a discussion on episode 280 of "Waking Up With Sam Harris" and the description of the dramatic shift in atmosphere that Jonathan Haidt explained.

    Spartan Life Radio - NSU Joins HBCU Tobacco-Free Campus Initiative

    in Education

    Norfolk State University recently held its Tobacco-Free Initiative kick-off event on Feb. 29. NSU now joins 33 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) involved in the Tobacco-Free HBCU Campus Initiative. This effort, led by Truth Initiative and former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Regina Benjamin, aims to change attitudes and beliefs about tobacco use on HBCU campuses. The event will feature Ritney Castine, managing director of community and youth engagement at Truth Initiative. Our guest on this episode of Spartan Life Radio is NSU professor Dr. Cythia Burwell who also heads up the tobacco-free campus taskforce.

    The Truth Initiative is a nonprofit public-health organization seeking to increase awareness about the dangers of tobacco through education, research and outreach. Burwell says the Initiative is imperative. “Smoking tobacco links to so many diseases and disparities, especially in low-income and minority communities,” said Burwell. “Many tobacco companies have targeted African Americans for decades, with menthol cigarettes in particular,” Burwell said.

    Smoking-related diseases are the number one cause of death in the African-American community with approximately 47,000 African-Americans dying from smoking-related diseases each year.

    Title IX and the Impact It Has Had on Addressing DV on College Campuses

    in Family

    Over the past few years an important national conversation has grown around the experiences and rights of sexual assault survivors on college campuses, there's been little attention paid to the reality of other forms of campus gender-based violence, particularly those perpetrated by intimate partners. Intimate partner violence (e.g., dating violence, domestic violence, relationship abuse) may include sexual assault but doesn't always. Tonight we are going to take a closer look at the other forms of intimate partner violence i.e. dating violence, domestic violence and relationship abuse.

    Why College Students Will Always be Broke

    in Entertainment

    An excerpt from Campus Grotto The inside source at College


    College students have a lot of different stereotypes. One of the main stereotypes college students often get, and perhaps one that couldn’t be truer, is that college students are broke, frugal beings always looking for a bargain. This can be seen in the referring of ramen noodles as the de facto diet of a college student.

    College prepares us for the real world, and surviving without money is almost a life test in itself as a college student. The fact that many students are broke makes them scavengers in their own way, hopping at any opportunity to get free stuff. This is why you used to see so many on-campus kiosks giving away free swag at the expense of filling out a student credit card application; a credit card that is more likely to harm the student, rather than help.

    So, it seems, the typical college student, who eats ramen noodles, drinks PBR, and illegally downloads music, will always be broke.

    Dr. Huntington Potter, of UC-Denver, Looks to Reverse Alzheimer's Trend

    in Caregiving

    With the American population living longer, Alzheimer’s disease is becoming more prevalent. According to a professor at the University of Colorado at Denver, about half of those older than 85, or 5.2 million people, suffer from the disease. The current cost to the American economy is about $220 billion a year.

    Our guest today is Dr. Huntington Potter, who works in the Department of Neurology and the Linda Crnic Institute for Down syndrome, said that if the disease could be delayed, even by five years, it would decrease the cost significantly.

    Dr. Potter recognizes that as humans age, various health problems arise, but Alzheimer’s is one of the most expensive conditions because it requires around-the-clock attention in the middle to late stages.

    Through their work, Potter and his colleagues at the Anschutz Medical Campus have discovered that people with Alzheimer’s have, over the course of their lives, developed Down-Syndrome-like cells throughout their bodies. These cells have three copies of Chromosome 21 rather than two. Those with Down syndrome, who are born with these cells, typically suffer Alzheimer’s in their 30s and dementia in their 40s

    Join us in this intriguing conversation of hope through Dr. Potters amazing research.  Call 929-477-1393 today, or download and listen later. You don't want to miss this!
