  • Is Violence a Function of our Culture? (Full Session)

    Homicide remains an endemic, seemingly unsolvable problem in America. And violent crime afflicts African-American communities to a much greater degree than it does others, as does mass incarceration — and as does police violence. What is the cause of this crisis? What role does racism play? What is the role of culture? Are there any solutions to be had? The mayor of New Orleans, Mitch Landrieu, has been confronting this crisis head-on, and Atlantic Magazine National Correspondent Ta-Nehisi Coates has written widely on matters of race, policing and American history.

    Officials told NBC News that hundreds of anti-austerity protesters clashed with police and set fire to at least seven squad cars in the German city of Frankfurt early Wednesday. The skirmishes broke out during demonstrations organized by the pan-European anti-austerity Blockupy movement protesting the inauguration ceremony of the new offices of the European Central Bank. Police spokeswoman Tessa Koscheg said, "The atmosphere is highly aggressive," adding that there were "several hundreds" of protesters. Some protesters spilled over into the city center and police said they were engaging with several smaller groups of demonstrators along the city's river Main and one of its shopping districts. http://feeds.nbcnews.com/c/35002/f/663303/s/4484cbbc/sc/30/l/0L0Snbcnews0N0Cnews0Cworld0Cgerman0E...

    The European Central Bank holds one of its most important meetings ever on Thursday as governors try to prevent the Greek debt crisis from overwhelming other eurozone countries, the French news agency AFP reported on Thursday. "The main issue is not Greece per se but the gathering contagion to the rest of the eurozone," economist Nouriel Roubini said as financial market pressure began to bear down on Portugal and Spain. Portugal is one of the countries seen as most ripe for contagion, but the decision to meet in Lisbon was taken more than a year ago, months before the Greek debt crisis erupted. The European Union and International Monetary Fund agreed last week to a three-year rescue package worth 110 billion euros (143 billion dollars) to help Athens pay its debts in exchange for auste...

Every choice you make, every behavior you exhibit, and even every desire you have finds its roots in the social universe. Nicholas Christakis explains why individual actions are inextricably linked to sociological pressures; whether you're absorbing altruism performed by someone you'll never meet or deciding to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge, collective phenomena affect every aspect of your life.

Braithwaite’s research and teaching focus on the causes and contagion of violent and nonviolent conflict, including terrorism, protests, riots, civil war and international wars. His research shows that incidents of violent political conflict cluster in space and time, and that openings in political opportunity structures encourage the contagion of violence between groups and across national borders. Ghosn’s interests focus on the interaction of adversaries and how such actors handle their disagreements. A common theme is the importance of the choice of strategy. Her articles have appeared in Conflict Management and Peace Science, International Negotiation, International Studies Quarterly and Middle East Journal. She holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from the American University of Beirut.

Rating agency Moody's has set itself on a collision course with German Chancellor Angela Merkel - after changing the country's credit outlook to negative. The agency even hinted at possible downgrades - if the Eurozone gets worse. But Merkel immediately fired back that Germany would remain Europe's financial haven, despite the Eurocrisis.

With the Eurozone crisis heating up, protests getting violent in Greece and rating agencies renewing their downgrades of PIIGS nations, what does all of this mean for some of Europe's biggest banks that are most exposed to these countries? Are we headed towards another banking crisis, this time in Europe? Where will it start, and can contagion reach the US? You are going to be shocked to find out what entrepreneurial investor and independent analyst Reggie Middleton says US taxpayers could be on the line for.

The European Central Bank holds one of its most important meetings ever on Thursday as governors try to prevent the Greek debt crisis from overwhelming other eurozone countries, the French news agency AFP reported on Thursday. "The main issue is not Greece per se but the gathering contagion to the rest of the eurozone," economist Nouriel Roubini said as financial market pressure began to bear down on Portugal and Spain. Portugal is one of the countries seen as most ripe for contagion, but the decision to meet in Lisbon was taken more than a year ago, months before the Greek debt crisis erupted. The European Union and International Monetary Fund agreed last week to a three-year rescue package worth 110 billion euros (143 billion dollars) to help Athens pay its debts in exchange for austerity cuts that have stoked public anger. Greek President Carolos Papoulias said the nation had "reached the edge of the abyss" on Wednesday as violence during protests left three people dead. On top of hesitation by EU leaders, the ECB did an unprecedented volte face this week by saying it would accept Greek debt as collateral for central bank loans even if the debt was downgraded to junk status, as the ratings agency Standard and Poor's has done. The move provided crucial relief to Greek banks and the government but dented the central bank's credibility. On more stable ground, the ECB governing council will undoubtedly leave the bank's main interest rate at one percent, marking a full year at that record low point. Bank governors will probably also note improved economic prospects for the 16-nation eurozone, where industrial output has strengthened and confidence among businesses and households has improved. The economy is set to grow by a better-than-expected 0.9 percent this year, the EU Commission said Wednesday. The ECB's target of keeping inflation just below two percent is not a real problem either, though the euro's sharp drop against major currencies amid the Greek crisis might put pressure on energy prices in the coming months.

If You're So Free, Why Do You Follow Others? The Sociological Science Behind Social Networks and Social Influence. Nicholas Christakis, Professor of Medical Sociology, Medicine, and Sociology at Harvard University If you think you're in complete control of your destiny or even your own actions, you're wrong. Every choice you make, every behavior you exhibit, and even every desire you have finds its roots in the social universe. Nicholas Christakis explains why individual actions are inextricably linked to sociological pressures; whether you're absorbing altruism performed by someone you'll never meet or deciding to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge, collective phenomena affect every aspect of your life. By the end of the lecture Christakis has revealed a startling new way to understand the world that ranks sociology as one of the most vitally important social sciences.

Josh Sigurdson reports on the breaking news that Jared Kushner did not disclose information that ties him to George Soros, Peter Thiel and Goldman Sachs as well as owing 1 billion dollars in loans. Essentially, Jared Kushner and George Soros are business partners. As The Wall Street Journal reports, "The top White House adviser and son-in-law of Trump failed to identify his part ownership of Cadre, a real-estate startup he founded, which links him to the Goldman Sachs Group and the mega-investors George Soros and Peter Thiel, sources told The Journal." "Kushner also failed to identify debt of more than $1 billion from 20 lenders and personal guarantees to pay more than $300 million of that, according to The Journal" "He still owes money to Bank of America, Blackstone Group, Citigroup, UBS, Deutsche Bank, and RBS, all of which were not disclosed, according to The Journal." This is clearly a conflict of interest and another sign that Trump is being forced at the very least into the deep state. George Soros, the globalist who funded much of Hillary Clinton's campaign, funds violent leftist revolutions and riots throughout the world through his Open Society Foundation, wants to regulate the internet in his favor at the United Nations and desperately wants a conflict with Russia has a way of infiltrating movements across the board. Jared Kushner has proven himself to be a globalist, pushing for war, globalist trade deals like NAFTA and even attempting to keep Trump in the Paris Climate Agreement. While Kushner, especially at his age is not at the top of the chain and is clearly a puppet himself, he shows himself to be the new generation's Henry Kissinger, whilst Kissinger continues to work behind the scenes all the same. The deep state always wins regardless of the president, but people think "voting harder" is going to change this despite history repeating itself at a more extreme scale consistently for more than 100 years. This breakdown exposes Jared Kushner and his many connections as well as George Soros' contined influence on American and global politics. Stay tuned for more from WAM!
