Diamond welcomes colleagues, Roberta Levitow (Co-founder and Director of Theatre Without Borders) and Frank Hentschker (Executive Director of The Segal Center) to discuss issues of Artists Working Internationally.

On January 7th, they present a full-day Symposium at the Segal Center in New York City to launch the Guide and grapple with the challenges faced by artists working internationally. With over 250 artists, administrators, funders and supporters from around the world, they will discuss issues ranging from visa and legal issues to arts-human rights work.

  • Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman: Your child can be more than his test scores

    in Psychology

    Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science.


    On this show, a "Best Of" replay, cognitive psychologist Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman lays out why intelligence tests currently used are far too limiting in determining a student’s true potential. 


    Kaufman is a rigorous researcher whose work I know and respect, but his new book, UNGIFTED: Intelligence Redefined, offers much more than science. It offers inspiration in Kaufman’s own story as a “late listener” (due to a spate of ear infections) who was put into learning disabled classes. And then, in 9th grade, through sheer determination, pushed his way into a gifted kids’ class -- ultimately going on to Yale, getting a Ph.D., then going on to become a young professor at NYU.


    On this show, we’ll discuss the limitations of current testing and a host of other things that matter in whether a child succeeds and how Scott thinks we would better assess talent, creativity, and “the many paths to greatness.”


    Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sun, 7-8 p.m. Pacific, 10-11 p.m. Eastern, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.


    Please buy my science-based and funny book on better human behavior, "Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck."  Along with positive reviews in the WSJ and other publications, Library Journal gave the book a starred review: "Verdict: Solid psychology and a wealth of helpful knowledge and rapier wit fill these pages. Highly recommended."

    Teen Bullying, Suicide, and Electronic Tools to Combat Them

    in Youth

    On December 3, 12-year-old Ronin Shimizu, a former 6th grader enrolled at Folsom Middle School, committed suicide after schoolmates had bullied him for being a cheerleader.



    According to the CDC, suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year. 
    Bully victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to studies by Yale University. 
    A study in Britain found that at least half of suicides among young people are related to bullying
    10 to 14 year old girls may be at even higher risk for suicide, according to the study above
    According to statistics reported by ABC News, nearly 30 percent of students are either bullies or victims of bullying, and 160,000 kids stay home from school every day because of fear of bullying


    Anonymous Alerts® is a tool which enables students to quickly report bullying, cyberbullying, depression, family problems, drug and alcohol abuse, gang-related issues, sexual harassment, guns/weapons in schools, theft/vandalism or unusual student behavior which may warrant immediate attention by school officials. The system is simple and secure for students and school officials.


    Join us as we discuss these issues and more.

    The Weekly Read, Will It Go Around in Circles?

    in Current Events

    New York is the greatest city in the world, so how come they can't get it right?  We will discuss the travesty that has become a world wide disgrace.  Eric Garner is dead today because NYPD THUGS choked the man and crushed his wind pipe ON FILM.  People all over the world are in unison in their endorsement of the "I can't breathe" slogan.  We will discuss this matter at length tonight.


    Last week we were not able to delve deeply into the insanity circularity that is now the saga of Bill Cosby.  Believe me when I tell you, tonight Kamal and Yale will climb all up in and around that issue.


    And oh by the way, report today says the United States tortured detainees during the years after 9/11 under the Dubya administration.  Did the CIA go to far?  Was Bush justified?  Can Bush SPELL justified?


    Oh yeah, did Don Lemon go "HAM" on Tavis Smiley?


    Focusing on the major and sometimes overlooked topics affecting us in America today, the Nitelifer Circle of Sanity examines what is going on in Baltimore MD, Seattle WA, and all parts of the country in between.  The “Media” is or isn't talking about it, but regardless, The Nitelifer Circle of Sanity is! We hope to enlighten and educate while delivering the seriousness of the issues with sarcasm and humor.  Whether it is politics or social issues, The Nitelifer Circle of Sanity will be there.

    Managing technology is a complicated process. Managing the people who develop and deploy technology is even more complicated. Add the pressures that come with a technology startup and it can be enough to drive a rational person to seek solace in a nice, quiet yurt.

Joe Emison is not just able to keep a successful team in motion, though -- he's able to talk about how he does it.


    In this episode, host Curtis Franklin talks with Joe about the challenges he faced in starting BuildFax and how he has been able to guide his technology team in adding value to IT in the business.

    [ENCORE] Redefining Success and Innovation | Jaycen Thorgeirson & Steve Rizzo

    in Business

    When we think of this definition of success, we tend to leave out an essential component: Happiness. If we do not truly enjoy the process toward our goals, we fall into habits that only breed negativity and deplete our energy. As C-Suite leaders, it’s common to become reserved and put your happiness on hold while waiting for results. Taking control of your own happiness, and viewing the future as a place full of possibility and innovation, give executives the power to lead better and become prolific in their impact on others. On this encore episode of Business Matters, we welcome Jaycen Thorgeirson and Steve Rizzo to the program.

He’s led efforts for many Fortune 500 companies interested in making an impact with their marketing collateral, such as, Nationwide Insurance, Century 21, Yale University, Mercedes, HP and more. Find him on Twitter @JaycenThor.


    Steve Rizzo is more than a Funny Motivational Speaker. Don’t let the laughter fool you! What Steve brings to the table is his captivating ability to engage the attendees with laughter as he challenges them to SHIFT their focus and way of thinking to discover greater enthusiasm, increased productivity and new levels of success.
