Ambassador McFaul Interview 47 mins – “When Michael McFaul arrived in Moscow in 2012 as U.S. ambassador to Russia, Russian President Vladimir Putin already considered him an adversary, he says — and attacks against him got personal and ugly.

Just before he arrived to take up his posting, there had been street protests against Putin, then serving as prime minister and running for president. “Putin’s reaction to that was to blame us for fomenting revolution against his regime — and when I showed up, to blame me personally,” McFaul tells NPR. His new book, From Cold War to Hot Peace, is part memoir, part history text — but he also suggests another genre. “It’s a tragedy,” he says, “about what we tried to do in the Obama administration, and on a personal level, it’s a tragedy about what I tried to do with Russia for the last 30 years.” At the link right-click “Download and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Bird Conservation 48 mins – “How do you get people to look up from their phone screens and computers and get them to care about the environment?

They actually need habitat to breed and feed. And it’s really a matter of getting out — of not becoming so locked in your virtual world that you forget about the real world.Franzen joined On Point Friday on our show about the Year of the Bird, an initiative by National Geographic, the National Audubon Society, BirdLife International and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to appreciate birds and protect them in 2018.” At the link right-click right-click the down-pointing arrow under the play button and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Climate Change Impact 58 mins – “Since 1995, the world has experienced twenty of the hottest years on record. The wildfires raging across western states are expected to burn more acreage than last year’s devastating fires. Hurricanes like Sandy, Harvey, Irma and Maria have caused enormous destruction. And less conspicuously but just as ominous, carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere have been creeping up. How does such environmental disaster affect human health? CO2 and Food Crops: You might imagine that plants exposed to extra carbon dioxide would grow more quickly, perhaps providing extra food for an increasing human population. But did you know that a number of food crops have lower levels of crucial nutrients like zinc, iron, protein and certain B vitamins when they grow under conditions of enriched CO2 in their atmosphere? How will this alter the nutritional status of the populations that depend on these crops? Infectious Diseases and Their Vectors: As climate patterns change, arthropods like ticks and mosquitoes move around and adapt. A number of these blood-sucking critters carry dangerous diseases like Zika virus, dengue fever, chikungunya, Lyme disease or Powassan virus. Will warmer winter temperatures allow them to spread into new territory? Will the diseases go with them? What about malaria? It was once a serious public health menace for the eastern seaboard of the United States. Will it make a comeback? Mental Health Effects of Climate Change: Many people are extremely distressed by the idea of global climate changes and environmental disaster.

Coping with Change 22 mins – ““Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm”.

So we all need to be prepared for the inevitable lows and I believe that the key is to quickly identify your mistake and take action. It is for this reason we ask every guest about their most significant lows, and what they have learned from them. Given their diversity of backgrounds and perspectives, here are some examples from the trenches about how a few of our highly accomplished guests from Season 4 from the worlds of business, academia, sports, science, and the arts have emerged from there lows and how they take that learning forward to create success.” At the link right-click Download this Episode” and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Sleep Science 38 mins – The National Sleep Foundation recommends an average of eight hours of sleep per night for adults, but sleep scientist Matthew Walker says that too many people are falling short of the mark. “Human beings are the only species that deliberately deprive themselves of sleep for no apparent gain,” Walker says. “Many people walk through their lives in an underslept state, not realizing it.” Walker is the director of the Center for Human Sleep Science at the University of California, Berkeley. He points out that lack of sleep — defined as six hours or fewer — can have serious consequences. Sleep deficiency is associated with problems in concentration, memory and the immune system, and may even shorten life span. “Every disease that is killing us in developed nations has causal and significant links to a lack of sleep,” he says. “So that classic maxim that you may [have] heard that you can sleep when you’re dead, it’s actually mortally unwise advice from a very serious standpoint.” Walker discusses the importance of sleep — and offers strategies for getting the recommended eight hours — in his new book, Why We Sleep.At the link right-click right-click the down-pointing arrow under the play button and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.
