May 18th, 2017 Academic scholars often conduct research with the goal of informing both national and local policies. Despite the seemingly clear applications of scientific research to practice, there is often a disconnect between what researchers recommend and what information policymakers ultimately use. In essence, academic researchers often believe that despite the strength of the research, politicians refuse to embrace the findings. Senator Joseph Dunn will provide expertise from the perspective of a politician who has witnessed academic researchers present their research to Congress and State Legislatures. Specifically, he will discuss why politicians and policymakers don’t always seem to make policy decisions based on the merits of the scientific research and will offer recommendations as to how academic researchers can more effectively influence policy. When the “science of politics” is embraced by academic researchers, the results of their research will be enthusiastically embraced by the politicians.

There have been many controversies at the evolutionary-developmental interface, one in particular has been continuing for over 30 year, how to explain why prenatal developmental exposures lead to a greater risk of obesity and non-communicable disease (NCD) in later life. Clearly “evolutionary mismatch” consequent on the recent intensification of the obesogenic environment development is a factor but it is necessary to explain why developmental exposures in utero and infancy exacerbate that risk. While epidemiological and experimental observations that maternal stress and maternal malnutrition predispose to later NCD risk, public health rejected the significance of these observations for over 20 years due to a lack of a conceptual and mechanistic basis. An initial attempt at a conceptual paradigm (the “thrifty phenotype hypothesis”) invoked concepts of adaptive developmental plasticity. While not supported by empirical data, this led to the “predictive adaptive response” (PAR) paradigm spurring considerable theoretical and empirical research as well as debate. Recently the PAR model has received empirical support. Molecular epigenetic studies have added weight to the conceptual arguments providing estimates of the significance of these developmental and trans-generational effects. These evolutionary arguments played an important role in shifting public health attitudes and are reflected in the 2011 Declaration on NCDs by the UN General Assembly and in the WHO Commission on Ending Childhood Obesity (ECHO) established in 2014 leading to a redirection of preventative efforts in obesity towards developmental factors. Professor Gluckman is an international advocate for science, promoting the translation of discoveries in biomedical research into improvements in long term health outcomes. His work with organisations such as the WHO has brought growing recognition of the importance of a healthy start to life. His research focuses on what gives us a healthy start to life: understanding how a baby’s environment between conception and birth determines its childhood development and life-long health - and the impact that this knowledge has for individuals and whole populations. His research has won him numerous awards and international recognition including Fellowship of the Commonwealth’s most prestigious scientific organisation, The Royal Society (London). He is the only New Zealander elected to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies of Science (USA) and the Academy of Medical Sciences of Great Britain. In 2009 he accepted an appointment as the first Chief Science Advisor to the Prime Minister of New Zealand. He continues to be based in the Liggins Institute as an active researcher and member of the Institute. A University of Auckland Distinguished Professor, he is Professor of Paediatric and Perinatal Biology. He is the author of over 500 scientific papers and reviews and editor of eight books, including two influential textbooks in his subject area. with colleague Mark Hanson of The University of Southampton, has co-authored two books for non-scientific audiences: The Fetal Matrix (2004) which summarises his ideas on how events in early life lead to altered disease risk in later life and Mismatch - why our world no longer fits our bodies (2006). “Evolution and development: From theory and controversy to public policy” Sir Peter Gluckman FRS Centre for Human Evolution, Adaptation and Disease, Liggins Institute, University of Auckland, New Zealand

Pete Peterson "US Colleges: Irredeemably Leftist...Or Is There Hope?" It's no secret that the Left dominates college campuses in the United States. And this is at all levels - administration, faculty, and students. Administrators routinely help unhinged Leftists exercise a heckler's veto over conservative speakers - shouting them down, threatening violence, and rioting. (Nothing says "I'm fighting fascism" like punching people for disagreeing with you...) Colleges worship diversity, but only certain types: skin color, national origin, sexual preferences. Diversity of opinion? Perish the thought. But - there may be hope. Pete Peterson, Dean of Pepperdine University's School of Public Policy, is a leader of a growing "Viewpoint Diversity" movement that seeks to restore balance to college campuses. Hear his ideas on how "sanity" may soon be back on the syllabus.

The FDA released a statement warning people about Mitragyna speciosa (Kratom) on November 14, 2017. Although that statement didn't confirm the government is going to pursue a ban on the plant, it's not a very hopeful message. Much like the DEA, the FDA highlighted poisonings and fatalities associated with kratom and kratom-containing products. But it's likely most of those involved polydrug exposure. There's little evidence kratom by itself has a high overdose death potential. We're still waiting to see what the FDA recommends to the DEA. That recommendation could push the government towards prohibiting the substance, just as federal authorities tried to do through emergency scheduling in 2016. Along with discussing the misleading nature of the FDA's statement, I discuss misleading statements from advocates who oppose a ban. Sadly, it appears a lot of people are advocating against prohibition using arguments that spread false ideas about the substance.

Bruno Latour gives a lecture titled 'Reenacting Science' at Science Gallery, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland World-renowned philosopher and anthropologist Bruno Latour, the world leader in science studies who pioneered actor-network theory, speaks at Science Gallery on February 20th 2012 About the speaker: Born in 1947 in Beaune, Burgundy, from a wine grower family, Bruno Latour was trained first as a philosopher and then an anthropologist. From 1982 to 2006, he has been professor at the Centre de sociologie de l'Innovation at the Ecole nationale supérieure des mines in Paris and, for various periods, visiting professor at UCSD, at the London School of Economics and in the history of science department of Harvard University. He is now professor at Sciences Po Paris where he is also the vice-president for research of that school. After field studies in Africa and California he specialized in the analysis of scientists and engineers at work. In addition to work in philosophy, history, sociology and anthropology of science, he has collaborated into many studies in science policy and research management. He has written Laboratory Life (Princeton University Press), Science in Action, and The Pasteurization of France. He also published a field study on an automatic subway system Aramis or the love of technology and an essay on symmetric anthropology We have never been modern. He has also gathered a series of essays, Pandora's Hope:Essays in the Reality of Science Studies to explore the consequences of the " science wars". After having directed several thesis on various environmental crisis, he published a book on the political philosophy of the environment Politics of Nature (all of those books are with Harvard University Press and have been translated in many languages). In a series of books, he has been exploring the consequences of science studies on different traditional topics of the social sciences: religion in On the Modern Cult of the Factish Gods, and Jubiler ou les tourments de la parole religieuse, and social theory in Paris ville invisible, a photographic essay on the technical & social aspects of the city of Paris (available on the web in English Paris Invisible City). After a long field work on one of the French supreme Courts, he has recently published a monograph la Fabrique du droit-une ethnographie du Conseil d'Etat (also now in English). A new presentation of the social theory which he has developped with his colleagues in Paris is available at Oxford University Press, under the title: Reassembling the Social, an Introduction to Actor Network Theory. After having curated a major international exhibition in Karlsruhe at the ZKM center, Iconoclash beyond the image wars in science, religion and art, he has curated another one also with Peter Weibel Making Things Public The atmospheres of democracy which has closed in October 2005 (both catalogues are with MIT Press). While in Sciences Po, he has created the médialab to seize the chance offered to social theory by the spread of digital methods and has created, together with Valrie Pihet a new experimental program in art and politics (SPEAP). Having been awarded and ERC grant to pursue an inquiry into modes of existence, he is now for three year engaged into the making of this collaborative digital platform.

This program is generously sponsored by the The Council on Foreign Relations. Invisible Armies by Max Boot examines the evolution of guerrilla warfare and terrorism, spanning 5,000 years of global history, leading up to the contemporary conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The author provides a detailed history and analysis of guerrilla fighters, strategists, and terrorists, from King David to Atila the Hun, from Mao Zedong to Fidel Castro, from Yasser Arafat to Osama bin Laden. Boot also profiles history's most esteemed military thinkers, from French army general Hubert Lyautey to T.E. Lawrence, to General David Petraeus, the man who created modern U.S. counterinsurgency strategy. Boot condenses his observations and lessons on guerrilla warfare into "Twelve Articles." One article notes that, while technology has been less important in guerrilla war than in conventional war, that may be changing because of weapons of mass destruction: "A small terrorist cell the size of a platoon might then have more killing capacity than the entire army of a nonnuclear state like Brazil or Egypt. That is a sobering thought." Max Boot is one of America's leading military historians and foreign-policy analysts. The Jeane J. Kirkpatrick senior fellow in National Security Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, he is also a contributing editor to the Weekly Standard and the Los Angeles Times, and a regular contributor to the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Commentary, and other publications.

Third Annual Executive Branch Review Conference http://www.fed-soc.org/ebrconference The economics profession has long proffered Benefit-Cost Analysis (BCA) as the best tool for making balanced and efficient governmental decisions on spending and regulation. Though some critics object to the tool, presidents from both parties for over four decades have endorsed the BCA paradigm as the preferred way to make sound regulatory decisions, and Congress is considering legislation that would require agencies to support major regulatory initiatives with BCA. But is BCA a silver bullet for improving policy decisions? If not, what procedural and analytical changes might improve its usefulness as a policy development tool? This diverse panel of legal and policy experts will explore these questions and examine the appropriate role for congressional and judicial oversight, the proper scope of BCA, and when analysis should be conducted and by whom.

What is CITIZEN SCIENCE? What does CITIZEN SCIENCE mean? CITIZEN SCIENCE meaning - CITIZEN SCIENCE definition - CITIZEN SCIENCE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Citizen science (CS) (also known as crowd science, crowd-sourced science, civic science, volunteer monitoring or networked science) is scientific research conducted, in whole or in part, by amateur or nonprofessional scientists. Citizen science is sometimes described as "public participation in scientific research," participatory monitoring and participatory action research. The term CS has multiple origins as well as differing concepts. It was first defined independently in the mid-1990s by Rick Bonney in the United States and Alan Irwin in the United Kingdom. Alan Irwin, a British sociologist, defines CS as "Developing concepts of scientific citizenship which foregrounds the necessity of opening up science and science policy processes to the public." Irwin sought to reclaim two dimensions of the relationship between citizens and science: 1) that science should be responsive to citizens' concerns and needs; and 2) that citizens themselves could produce reliable scientific knowledge. The American ornithologist Rick Bonney, unaware of Irwin's work, defined CS as projects in which nonscientists, such as amateur birdwatchers, voluntarily contributed scientific data. This describes a more limited role for citizens in scientific research than Irwin's conception of the term. The terms citizen science and citizen scientists entered the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) in June 2014. "Citizen science" is defined as "scientific work undertaken by members of the general public, often in collaboration with or under the direction of professional scientists and scientific institutions." "Citizen scientist" is defined as: (a) "a scientist whose work is characterized by a sense of responsibility to serve the best interests of the wider community (now rare)"; or (b) "a member of the general public who engages in scientific work, often in collaboration with or under the direction of professional scientists and scientific institutions; an amateur scientist." The first use of the term "citizen scientist" can be found in the magazine New Scientist in an article about Ufology from October 1979. Muki Haklay cites, from a policy report for the Wilson Center entitled "Citizen Science and Policy: A European Perspective," an alternate first use of the term "citizen science" by R. Kerson in the magazine MIT Technology Review from January 1989. Quoting from the Wilson Center report: "The new form of engagement in science received the name 'citizen science.' The first recorded example of the use of the term is from 1989, describing how 225 volunteers across the US collected rain samples to assist the Audubon Society in an acid-rain awareness raising campaign. The volunteers collected samples, checked for acidity, and reported back to the organization. The information was then used to demonstrate the full extent of the phenomenon." A "Green Paper on Citizen Science" was published in 2013 by the European Commission’s Digital Science Unit and Socientize.eu, which included a definition for CS, referring to "the general public engagement in scientific research activities when citizens actively contribute to science either with their intellectual effort or surrounding knowledge or with their tools and resources. Participants provide experimental data and facilities for researchers, raise new questions and co-create a new scientific culture. While adding value, volunteers acquire new learning and skills, and deeper understanding of the scientific work in an appealing way. As a result of this open, networked and trans-disciplinary scenario, science-society-policy interactions are improved leading to a more democratic research, based on evidence-informed decision making." Citizen science may be performed by individuals, teams, or networks of volunteers. Citizen scientists often partner with professional scientists to achieve common goals. Large volunteer networks often allow scientists to accomplish tasks that would be too expensive or time consuming to accomplish through other means.

Her research has significantly shaped our understanding of child and adolescent development and the influence of parents, schools and contextual factors including economic deprivation, quality of child care type, and parental employment on long-term outcomes for children and adolescents. ABSTRACT The Long Reach of Early Childhood: Biological, Environmental Influences Jeanne Brooks-Gunn, M.Ed., Ph.D. Early childhood is a time of life which is receiving increasing attention from life course scholars, the public health community, policy makers and interventionists. Early childhood experiences are believed to have long-term consequences for the well-being of individuals and societies and interventions at this time are thought to alter life trajectories (and possibly reduce disparities between children from different social and economic backgrounds). My research addresses the premises that early childhood has long-term effects and that intervention during early childhood are a good investment. My longitudinal research addresses questions having to do with the effects of early adversities experienced in the family and community upon children and adolescents as well as exploring how the timing, intensity, type and/or accumulation of adversities result in negative trajectories in health and development; these questions, for the most part, have not been well addressed. In addition, whether and when adversities are associated with biological weathering (changes in telomere length and methylation over time) as well as biological sensitivity to adversities are also examined. Finally, whether positive experiences (i.e., home visiting programs, early childhood education, change in parental education, work, or income) alter trajectories also are considered. These issues are discussed with a special focus on the Fragile Families Child Wellbeing Study, the Early Head Start and Head Start impact Studies, andother early interventions with which I have been involved.

Behind every policy strategy, of government or business, lies a narrative that contextualises and justifies a course of action. Restrictive immigration policies are necessary to prevent an oversupply of labour and a taxing of our natural resources… allegedly. Who develops these narratives and how well informed are they? Often they derive from the thinking of influential foreign and supranational organisations, or the conventional wisdom and philosophies of domestic political parties and powerful media organisations. In this lecture, Simon Ville argues that the design of narratives that best shape our future must draw deeply upon our national historical experience. The newly-published Cambridge Economic History of Australia provides a modern statement of our past experience to guide our economic narratives for the Asian century, highlighting our sources of resilience and exposing our potential frailties.

Accounting scandals are political and/or business scandals which arise with the disclosure of financial misdeeds by trusted executives of corporations or governments. Such misdeeds typically involve complex methods for misusing or misdirecting funds, overstating revenues, understating expenses, overstating the value of corporate assets or underreporting the existence of liabilities, sometimes with the cooperation of officials in other corporations or affiliates. In public companies, this type of "creative accounting" can amount to fraud, and investigations are typically launched by government oversight agencies, such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the United States. The Enron scandal turned in the indictment and criminal conviction of one of the Big Five auditor Arthur Andersen on June 15, 2002. Although the conviction was overturned on May 31, 2005, by the Supreme Court of the United States, the firm ceased performing audits and is currently unwinding its business operations. The Enron scandal was defined as being one of the biggest audit failures. The scandal included utilizing loopholes that were found within the GAAP (General Accepted Accounting Principles). For auditing a big sized company such as Enron, the auditors were criticized for having brief meetings a few times a year that covered large amounts of material. By January 17, 2002, Enron decided to discontinue its business with Arthur Andersen claiming they had failed in accounting advice and related documents. Arthur Andersen was judged guilty of obstruction of justice for getting rid of many emails and documents that were related to auditing Enron. Since the SEC is not allowed to accept audits from convicted felons, the firm was forced to give up its CPA licenses later in 2002, costing over 113,000 employees their jobs. Although later the ruling was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, the once-proud firm's image was tarnished beyond repair, and it has not returned as a viable business even on a limited scale. On July 9, 2002 George W. Bush gave a speech about recent accounting scandals that had been uncovered. In spite of its stern tone, the speech did not focus on establishing new policy, but instead focused on actually enforcing current laws, which include holding CEOs and directors personally responsible for accountancy fraud. In July, 2002, WorldCom filed for bankruptcy protection, in what was considered the largest corporate insolvency ever at the time. These scandals reignited the debate over the relative merits of US GAAP, which takes a "rules-based" approach to accounting, versus International Accounting Standards and UK GAAP, which takes a "principles-based" approach. The Financial Accounting Standards Board announced that it intends to introduce more principles-based standards. More radical means of accounting reform have been proposed, but so far have very little support. The debate itself, however, overlooks the difficulties of classifying any system of knowledge, including accounting, as rules-based or principles-based.This also led to the establishment of Sarbanes-Oxley. On a lighter note, the 2002 Ig Nobel Prize in Economics went to the CEOs of those companies involved in the corporate accounting scandals of that year for "adapting the mathematical concept of imaginary numbers for use in the business world". In 2003, Nortel made a big contribution to this list of scandals by incorrectly reporting a one cent per share earnings directly after their massive layoff period. They used this money to pay the top 43 managers of the company. The SEC and the Ontario securities commission eventually settled civil action with Nortel. However, a separate civil action will be taken up against top Nortel executives including former CEO Frank A. Dunn, Douglas C. Beatty, Michael J. Gollogly and MaryAnne E. Pahapill and Hamilton. These proceedings have been postponed pending criminal proceedings in Canada, which opened in Toronto on January 12, 2012. Crown lawyers at this fraud trial of three former Nortel Networks executives say the men defrauded the shareholders of Nortel of more than $5 million. According to the prosecutor this was accomplished by engineering a financial loss in 2002, and a profit in 2003 thereby triggering Return to Profit bonuses of $70 million for top executives. In 2005, after a scandal on insurance and mutual funds the year before, AIG was investigated for accounting fraud. The company already lost over 45 billion US dollars' worth of market capitalisation because of the scandal. Investigations also discovered over a billion US dollars worth of errors in accounting transactions. The New York Attorney General's investigation led to a $1.6 billion fine for AIG and criminal charges for some of its executives. CEO Maurice R. "Hank" Greenberg was forced to step down and is still fighting civil charges being pursued by New York state. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accounting_scandals
