Policing the Police

Policing the Police

Today, we’re discussing a subject, that’s unfortunately in the news far too often, police brutality. Recently, we saw the brutal beat down in Memphis, Tennessee of 29-year-old Tyre Nichols, a father of a four-year-old, after being stopped for a traffic violation, just 100 yards from his home. The beating was severe. Nichols was brought to the hospital in critical condition and died two days later from his injuries. Five police officers were indicted and charged with second degree murder, aggravated assault, aggravated kidnapping, and other charges. Joining me to discuss police brutality and policing in general, is Laura Goodman a former sergeant in the Minneapolis Police Department and Deputy Chief of the Brooklyn Center Police Department, a suburb of Minneapolis. She now travels the world as a policing advocate focusing on how to improve police-community relationships, reducing violence and increasing the representation of women in police leadership roles.

From Ukraine to Bosnia Wars of Terror

From Ukraine to Bosnia Wars of Terror

Today, we’re discussing a subject that’s in the news every day, the horrific war being waged by the Russian Federation, in their attempt to seize and control the democratic nation of Ukraine in the heart of Europe. You’ve all seen the video of terrible destruction being rained down on the Ukrainian civilian population by Russian missiles, bombs and drones, the mass graves of innocent civilians executed by Russian troops. Most thought this kind of terror would never happen again after the horrors in World War II. However, before the current Russian massacre… there was another genocidal war in the early 1990’s, as the former Yugoslavia disintegrated…. and Serbs, Croatians and Bosnians fought for control of territory. Joining me to discuss the parallels between today’s war in Ukraine and the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina, is Leila Prnjavorac (purr-na-vo-rach) a communications expert, a lecturer, and a Freedom Ambassador who now resides in the Hague.

How to Confront the Disinformation Age

How to Confront the Disinformation Age

On this edition of  "THE BIG SHIFT" we discuss a subject of extreme importance to our society, disinformation and misinformation and how it impacts our decision making, our politics and how our society can move forward in a positive direction when we no longer trust, and no longer know…. that what we read, view or hear in the media…… is true or not. We’ve gone through a rough few years in society and so much has changed. The pandemic which started in early 2020 is still with us today. Along with the pandemic, millions of American’s immersed themselves online…..  and began reading a great deal of unsavory, racist, anti-Semitic and untruthful information. …. There was disinformation about getting vaccinated, fictitious stories about the pandemic being caused by a deliberate leak from a lab in China, that COVID-19 was linked to cell towers that the virus was a hoax. The ex-President suggested bleach as a treatment. There was so much being thrown at us it was hard to know what to believe.

Is the Economy Broken or is Recession Coming

Is the Economy Broken or is Recession Coming

Today, we’re discussing our volatile economy with a long-time expert in that field, Dr. Nicholas Sargen, the author of several books including “Global Shocks: An Investment Guide for Turbulent Markets.” The global economy has suffered through a series of global shocks – the coronavirus pandemic, which is still with us, the energy shock related to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine shutting down gas supplies to Europe and of course the biggest threat of all climate change wreaking havoc around the world. On top of that inflation has soared to the highest level in 4 decades, forcing the Fed to raise rates aggressively…. five hikes in 2022. Economists believe the chance of a recession next year are 50:50. What might we see going forward?
