Sign up here for Climate Fwd: , our email newsletter. WASHINGTON — In the summer, when heat waves scorch cities or heavy rains flood the coasts, some climate scientists and environmentalists will point out any plausible connections to global warming, hoping today’s weather will help people understand tomorrow’s danger from climate change. Then winter comes. And, like clockwork, those who want to deny the established science that humans are warming the planet will try to flip the script. President Trump took to Twitter to mock climate fears: “Wouldn’t be bad to have a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right … [Read more...] about How the Weather Gets Weaponized in Climate Change Messaging
Ed s degree school psychology
By Cynthia Teniente-Matson, Ed.D., Guest columnist Published 12:00 am CST, Tuesday, February 5, 2019 As far back as I can remember, my parents told me that education was very important and that I was going to college. Even growing up on San Antonio’s South Side, attending Kindred Elementary and Sydney Wright Elementary, access to education for a young Latina like me was never in question. That is not the case everywhere. Let us consider, for example, the inspirational story of Malala Yousafzai, who grew up in a small village in Pakistan where the Taliban intimidated girls and women from getting an education. Malala’s father operated a girls’ school there and was determined his daughter would receive an education equal to boys. Malala had a passion for education and was outspoken about girls having a right to learn. Drawing the attention of the Taliban, Malala was shot while riding a school bus in 2012. She was only 15. Incredibly, she recovered and … [Read more...] about Column: Making progress on women and girls in science

Produced by Clare Friedland, Lourdes Aguiar, Elena DiFiore and Shoshanah Wolfson [This story previously aired on July 15, 2017. It was updated on Dec. 29, 2018.] Matt Herren still struggles to make sense of what happened the night of Oct. 12, 2012, when his close friend, Ryan Poston, was killed. "I think about him every day," Herren said. "You don't think something like that is ever going to happen to someone you know." "Is there something I could've done that could've prevented that? And I know a lot of people in his life had to have felt the same way," Herren told "48 Hours" correspondent Peter Van Sant. How did things spiral so out of control between Ryan and his girlfriend, Shayna Hubers, that she shot him to death -- insisting it was to protect herself? "What was lost when your friend was shot and killed?" Van Sant asked Herren. "He's the type of person that you want in your life," he replied. "Not just a friend, but a loving son, a protective, adoring older brother." "He had … [Read more...] about New murder trial for Shayna Hubers: Why did she shoot Ryan Poston six times?

Seelye Dec. 14, 2018 Fred Greenstein, a pre-eminent scholar of political psychology who devised a systematic approach to evaluating the leadership styles of American presidents and who helped breathe new life into the reputation of Dwight D. Eisenhower, died on Dec. 3 at his home in Princeton, N.J. He was 88. The cause was complications from a form of Parkinson’s disease, said his wife, Barbara Greenstein. Dr. Greenstein, who taught politics at Princeton University for nearly three decades, first made his mark with a reconsideration of Eisenhower, who was long perceived as disengaged from the job. Dr. Greenstein’s book, “The Hidden-Hand Presidency: Eisenhower as … [Read more...] about Fred Greenstein, Who Studied Leadership Styles of Presidents, Dies at 88
