    The meaning of life according to Simone de Beauvoir – Iseult Gillespie

    At the age of 21, Simone de Beauvoir became the youngest person to take the philosophy exams at France’s most esteemed university. She passed with flying colors. But as soon as she mastered the rules of philosophy, she wanted to break them. She’d been schooled on Plato’s Theory of Forms, which dismissed the physical world as a flawed reflection of higher truths and unchanging ideals. But for de Beauvoir, earthly life was enthralling, sensual, and anything but static. Her desire to explore the physical world to its fullest would shape her life, and eventually, inspire a radical new philosophy. Endlessly debating with her romantic and intellectual partner Jean Paul Sartre,…

    Coal mining and opioid deaths | IN 60 SECONDS

    Deaths of despair — increases in mortality caused by suicide, addiction, and alcoholism — is a term that describes the crisis caused by job losses in manufacturing and other heavy industries. Several recent studies have suggested that unemployment was a factor in these deaths, especially in regions like Appalachia. But a new study claims that the real culprit may be coal mining itself. Coal mines are associated with injuries that often require treatment with opioid painkillers. The more opioid use, the greater the community’s exposure to opioids — both legal and illegal — resulting in higher rates of addiction and death. A decline in coal employment was associated with lower…

    What Does It Mean to Be a “Good” Student? | Creators for Change

    This episode was made possible by the YouTube Creators for Change program. What does it mean when we say someone is a “good student”? I figured for many of us, a “good student” means someone who gets high, if not perfect, grades, is never late to class, and always has a readily sharpened pencil close at hand. We don’t think of strugglers, stragglers, or people with performances that fluctuate. But, confession time. At different points in my own academic career, I’ve been that person. So, how did I go from the kid who almost failed three classes in eighth grade to earning a PhD? Looking back, my struggles with school…

    2020 Iranian legislative elections: What’s next for Iran and the West? | IN 60 SECONDS

    There is a battle for control in Iran between far-right hardliners and relative moderates. Hardliners generally support aggressive foreign policy and reject even limited political and economic freedoms. Moderates contrastingly support the Iran nuclear deal and some economic reform, like more trade with Europe. But in Iran’s 2020 parliamentary elections the regime disqualified most moderate candidates and hardliners won. Turnout hit historic lows. Iranians are angry with the unfair elections. In 2019, moderates headed Iran’s three government branches. Hardliners will control two in 2020. If a far-right candidate becomes president in 2021 — which is likely — they will head all three branches. Growing hardliner control will facilitate more aggressive…
