Public Policies: Analysis (Episode 6/8)
 
07:04
How to analyze a public policy? Through the example of the Tunisian education policy reform, this episode of “Draw me a public policy” series outlines different questions that should be raised when seeking to better understand the mechanics behind an existing public policy. This video was produced by NET-MED Youth members in Tunisia, as part of an initiative to raise awareness about public policies and to support youth engagement, critical thinking and advocacy for youth policies. Watch how it all started here: http://bit.ly/2fDbG8e You can find all 8 episodes of this series, and more, on our playlist: http://bit.ly/2ete5mE Networks of Mediterranean Youth (NET-MED Youth) is a project implemented by UNESCO and funded by the European Union. It aims at mainstreaming youth issues and priorities across national decision-making and policy implementation in eastern and western Mediterranean countries.

Joe Dunn – Understanding the Strange World of Political Advocacy
 
01:18:49
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.
Round Table Discussion on Science Policy

Four University of Oxford scientists discuss science policy. Prof Matthew Freeman, Head of the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology and Prof Denis Noble, Emeritus Professor of Cardiovascular Physiology are joined by Dr Tianyi Zhang from the Biochemistry Department, and Dr Gijsbert Werner from Zoology. Together they outline the value of science and the need for public funding of research which will not only lead to applications such as medicine which benefit society, but also for more fundamental research, the benefits of which are as yet unknown.

Evolution and development: From theory and controversy to public policy | Peter Gluckman | ISEMPH
 
45:55
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

Wethington & Dunifon, Research for the Public Good
 
51:51
In a September 2012 book talk at Mann Library, Cornell College of Human Ecology professors Elaine Wethington (Dept. of Human Development) and Rachel Dunifon (Dept. of Policy Analysis and Management) discuss their new publication, "Research for the Public Good: Applying Methods of Translational Research to Improve Human Health and Well-Being." Helping to bridge the gaps among research, policy, and practice, the book demonstrates how emerging methods of translational research can help us develop programs and policies that improve human health and well-being. This broader, more inclusive approach to translational research has gained popularity and is now being promoted by the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, medical centers, and university programs across the United States.

Costs and Benefits vs. Smoke and Mirrors
 
01:28:40
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.

Max Boot - Invisible Armies
 
56:31
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. The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher dedicated to being a resource for its members, government officials, business executives, journalists, educators and students, civic and religious leaders, and other interested citizens in order to help them better understand the world and the foreign policy choices facing the United States and other countries.
Re-imagining Whealth | Art Sherwood | TEDxWWU

Reenacting Science: Bruno Latour at SCIENCE GALLERY
 
01:11:08
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.

Spain NO GO ZONE For Men Gender Violence Laws (Penis Evacuation)

Consider Helping The Man Economy on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/ManEconomy http://www.maneconomy.com http://justiciadegenero.com/en/analysis-of-8-years-of-gender-violence-law-in-spain/ https://www.elconfidencial.com/ultima-hora-en-vivo/2016-10-25/congreso-aprueba-ampliar-la-violencia-de-genero-a-agresiones-fuera-de-pareja_1047890/ http://kukuruyo.com/2016/02/17/spain-gender-laws-a-country-against-men/ Spain is a no go zone for men. The matriarchal overtly sexist laws of western countries such as Sweden and the Uk are often cited as remarkably biased against men. However, little is said about Spain. Whose laws are so draconian that Spain must be considered as at least equal to these jurisdictions? I am about to describe to you the DV laws in Spain which are grossly one sided and grossly unfair, stripping men of basic human rights. They may be similar to your countries laws if you live in the west and you can be sure if your countries’ laws aren’t like this that they will be soon. In this video I will refer to several references but focus on the academic paper titled “Analysis of 8 years of gender violence law in Spain” by Antonia carrasco and Marisa culebras. I have directly quoted this paper on several occasions throughout this video. In 2004 Spain introduced “Gender violence laws”, which is a law defined as only being against women. This obvious sexist law is particularly dishonest and oppressive of men and is against the Spanish constitution, although the constitution was later changed to accommodate this law. The suggestion is that men commit more violence so make a law just for men. At this stage you might recall from my previous videos that almost every study on DV (and there has been close to 2,000 academic studies on this topic worldwide) shows that women and men are about equally violent when it comes to DV while some research shows that Spanish women commit more DV than do Spanish men. The law interprets lesser acts of violence committed by a woman against a man as a misdemeanour, whereas if the perpetrator is a man, it is interpreted as a crime. It also disregards the right that a Spanish citizen may not suffer discrimination on the grounds of sex. But what is most alarming is that the constitutional principle of presumption of innocence becomes, in the case of a man, a presumption of guilt, reversing the burden of proof, forcing the accused to prove his innocence beyond doubt, directly violating several international laws ratified by Spain, which guarantee the presumption of innocence. This is basic human rights stuff here. With the law in vigour, numerous Spanish feminist associations began to make recommendations to women seeking assistance that instead of going to a family therapist – that existed for the very purpose – that they applied to a court of “gender violence” to resolve their marital or family issues. There are sites such as www.infomaltrato.com, where they recommend making a complaint to the police for numerous types of issues. Obviously, there are many instances that relate to serious abuse, thus reporting the matter and requesting protection measures are reasonable, but a substantial number of cases have been based on trivial complaints, such as not letting the female partner watch a certain TV program, or not letting them finish a crossword, simply raising their voice or even criticizing the partners clothes. But remember this is only violence if the man does it and not if the woman does it.

Computational Phenomena in Social Interaction - Jon Kleinberg
 
01:04:11
Lens of Computation on the Sciences - November 22, 2014 Computational Phenomena in Social Interaction - Jon Kleinberg, Cornell University With an increasing amount of social interaction taking place in the digital domain, and often in public on-line settings, we are accumulating enormous amounts of data about phenomena that were once essentially invisible to us: the collective behavior and social interactions of hundreds of millions of people, recorded at unprecedented levels of scale and resolution. Modeling and analyzing these phenomena computationally offers new insights into the design of on-line applications, as well as a new perspective on fundamental questions in the social sciences. We will review some of the basic issues around these developments; these include the problem of designing information systems in the presence of complex social feedback effects, the opportunity to develop and refine rich computational models of complex social phenomena, and the emergence of a growing research interface between computing and the social sciences, facilitated by these new forms of data and new computational models. Jon Kleinberg is the Tisch University Professor in the Departments of Computer Science and Information Science at Cornell University. Kleinberg received his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1996. His research focuses on algorithmic issues at the interface of networks and information, with an emphasis on the social and information networks that underpin the Web and other online media. Kleinberg is also the recipient of research fellowships from the MacArthur, Packard, Simons, and Sloan Foundations, as well as awards including the Nevanlinna Prize, Harvey Prize, and ACM-Infosys Foundation Award in the Computing Sciences. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. http://www.cs.cornell.edu/home/kleinber/ More videos on http://video.ias.edu

What is CITIZEN SCIENCE? What does CITIZEN SCIENCE mean? CITIZEN SCIENCE meaning & explanation

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.
