Learning by Heart - Tony Wagner EP 26
From the deck of the home that Tony and PJ Wagner share on the shores of Squam Lake in New Hampshire you can hear the Loons calling at night. The long lonely call of a Loon is a haunting and beautiful metaphor for the life that Tony has lived as he has developed an educational philosophy and framework. Lonely because Tony has surely felt alone at times as he has navigated the change-averse educational establishment attempting to map out a vision of what a 21st Century education should look like; long because his ideas, musings, and theories will surely continue to echo well into the future.Tony Wagner is an eminent education specialist: he has taught at every grade level from high school through graduate school; worked at Harvard; done significant work for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; and speaks across the country and all over the world.

Ep 22_RC Don Kreis - Electricity Consumer Advocate
The political, social and democratic systems that govern utility law differ from state to state but there are fundamental principles that apply and there are many ways in which states and the federal government cooperate to assure the resilience of our power grid. The recent meltdown of the "system" in Texas is one example of the challenges that confront us as we make our way to a world where sustainable energy, conservation, and democratic values help define a greener and brighter future.

Braver Angels - Douglass Teschner Interview
Braver Angels - Politics is tough. It always has been. American politics is competitive, thrilling, frustrating – and infuriating. The stakes are high. Issues are important. Outcomes matter. This is why we care, and should care, about our politics. But do our politics have to be demonizing? Does it have to bring out the worst in us? Do our politics have to destroy the goodwill of our society? Braver Angels is a relatively young organization that answers these questions with a resounding no and is seeking to assure the same.

A New Old Immigrant, a Red Pickup and a Trump Voter . . . and a Glimpse of the Real America This is the story of a new American and new voter 77 years young and voting for the first time in her life. This morning at 4:34 am Carol Stanigar of Lebanon, New Hampshire wrote this email to her friend Maryann Dearest Maryann, I can always be sure that you will be cheering me on. I am sure that people in San Francisco get all gussied up to vote but here in NH Ill be wearing my uniform. A flannel shirt. OMG! I'm up before the sun. Sooooooo excited! Can you STAND it: My Trumpster neighbor is going to take me to show me the ropes and to “make sure that nobody shoots me”, although I am contemplating making a sign to hang around my neck that says "NEW OLD IMMIGRANT". Furthermore, he is going to take me in his pickup truck. All these years and I never did get a ride in one. God, I wish that I could ride in the back with my sign. OH, I did get his wife, who is going to be tending the event to agree to write in Romney if she can't bring herself to vote Democrat. Maybe Roy will too. OMG! This brings back memories of my first day of school....running up Mountain View avenue with Nursie in full pursuit I was soooo excited. No, nervous. I wish that you could have seen Roy. I tried to take a picture but my camera failed me. He had the red Ford pickup with his HUGE mustache all gooped up and extending 2” on each side. Blue jeans and felt cowboy hat. I was so proud hanging onto his arm so I wouldn’t slip on the ice. You should have seen the look on a lot of the faces that knew Roy. OMG! I’m causing a small-town scandal. He walked me through the whole thing and insisted that I wear my “I voted sticker” on my coat.

Episode 13 Fred Bramante - Experiential Education Comes of Age
Experiential Education and Competency Mastery Comes of Age A Conversation with Fred Bramante The National Center for Competency-Based Learning http://www.nccbl.org/ If Fred Bramante has his way, schools will look nothing like they do today in ten years. Where today many schools remain mired in the old ways - 180 days in a seat with teachers imparting and students absorbing - under the best of circumstances. If they are lucky their four years of school will yield a high school diploma. If Fred Bramante gets his way, Teachers will become facilitators, teaching in classrooms part-time and working with students of all kinds to help them find experiences that yield mastery over various competencies identified by schools, communities, teachers and other educational leaders.

Rebels at Work Lois Kelly Episode11 Radical Centrist
Rebels at Work - Lois Kelly Creating Change From the Belly of the Beast Can you be an effective Change Agent if you aren’t at the top of the corporate ladder? The answers to that question is a resounding yes. Few of us get to start at the top of the corporate ladder. Yet many of us have good ideas that could create real and positive change in the company where we are hoping to move up the ladder. But creating change when you don’t possess the “portfolio” of a member of upper management can be very intimidating - even terrifying. After all, those with a portfolio have some degree of protection built into the system. But if you are - perhaps just getting your feet wet - you may find yourself on very slippery ground in trying to bring about change. “Creativity is a renewable Resource” says Lois Kelly. If you’ve had one good idea, you are bound to have others as well. Take those ideas and make them happen. Rebelsatwork.com Twitter: @loiskelly @rebelsatwork

EP 09 Dunfey GlobalCitizensCircle 5 29 19
Now heading into their 45th anniversary year, with a title that reflects their expanding reach and global ambitions, New England Circle has become "Global Citizens Circle". GCC has played critical roles in overcoming Apartheid in South Africa, bringing peace to Northern Ireland and today is teamed up with Southern New Hampshire University - perhaps the most unappreciated yet acclaimed University in the world, to bring education, dialog and activism together to create a place on which to stand together for constructive change. Archimedes is credited with saying, when describing the lever: "Give me a place to stand and I will move the world." Global Citizen's Circle is the place to stand and the lever, and its thousands of citizen activists are the force by which constructive change can be forged in even the most turbulent of times.

Ep 08 Ralph Hough Radical Centrist_RC5_3_19
For those who long for a more civil times when Republicans and Democrats saw one another as the loyal opposition. State Senate President Ralph Hough Gave New Hampshire A Senate to Remember in 1992. Named as a Defendant in the nationally renowned Claremont v NH lawsuit over educational funding because of the constitutional office he held, Hough was a profile in courage when, he filed a brief on behalf of the Plaintiff School Districts and testified before the NH Supreme Court, asking them to side with the Schools. That year the Supreme Court Ruled on behalf of the Schools and the Children, though the struggle continues, this decision will set the precedent for a new suit recently filed once again.
