Yuval Noah Harari is joined by Lord Hague of Richmond, Chairman of the RUSI, as they explore topics from ’21 Lessons for the 21st Century.’ RUSI is an independent think tank engaged in cutting-edge defense and security research.Transcript available here:
Charles Ives [1874 - 1954] - 114 Songs [1888 - 1921]"Charles Ives privately funded the printing of his 114 Songs in 1921. The oldest song included, "Slow March," is dated 1888; the rest date from virtually every year up to the time of publication. Some of the songs were newly arranged for voice & piano, or condensed from other sources explicitly for inclusion in the volume during 1920-1921. Ives' initial motivation was solely to be able to hold a book of his own songs in his hands, but in the "Preface" to the 114 Songs, Ives refers to other motivations that had occurred to him in the interim: "(It) was undertaken primarily in order to have a few clear copies that could be sent to friends who have been interested enough to ask for copies of some of the songs. It contains plenty of songs which have not been and will not be asked for."A bit more than half of Ives' known output of 200 songs are represented in this collection. Among the best known items included are "Evening," "Charlie Rutlage," "Ann Street," "Serenity," "The Cage," "The Children's Hour," and "Memories." A few songs are sub-grouped into sets that are related thematically; for example "Old Home Day," "In the Alley," "A Son of a Gambolier," "Down East," and "The Circus Band" are grouped together as "5 Street Songs and Pieces." Stylistically the 114 Songs cover the breadth of Ives' musical terrain, from the endearingly simple to the mind-bogglingly complex; songs such as "The Collection," are straightforward enough to be appropriate for church use, while other pieces, like "from 'Paracelsus'," contain piano parts absolutely blackened with notes and voice parts full of ungainly intervals, sometimes as wide as a minor tenth. The extremes of both consonance and dissonance, stillness and cacophony are all present, and each bears Ives' unmistakable stamp of personality.Interwoven with this musical diversity is an equally characteristic variety of expressive purpose. Ives' good-natured wit, irreverent humor, genuine sentimentality, and political and philosophical leanings are all well represented in his choices of texts, and each is wedded to music of surprising flexibility. One need only examine the smile-inducingly brief "1, 2, 3" -- which manages to make pithy patriotic commentary out of a mere sentence of text -- and the sprawling "Housatonic at Stockbridge" -- the lyrical expansiveness of which puts Ives on par with the any song composer in history -- to see how open-minded and individual Ives was in his approach to text setting.Many writers have stated that the 114 Songs are the most important group of art songs ever written by an American composer. In an age where Tin Pan Alley material is often elevated to the level of art song in recitals and recordings, this has become more difficult to defend. However, there is no another collection of songs quite like the 114 of Ives. Ives wrote, "this package of paper, uncollectible notes, marks of respect and expression, is now thrown, so to speak, at the music fraternity, who will for this reason feel free to do dodge it on its way -- perhaps to the waste basket." Indeed, that's exactly where many copies of the rare first edition of this work ended up. However, the reputation of Ives' 114 Songs has improved considerably since then, and in 2001 MUSA announced the publication of 129 Songs, which is the first critical edition of 114 Songs, plus 15 others, edited by H. Wiley Hitchcock."(Ohrenstein, sopranoPhilliip Bush, pianoMary Ann Hart, mezzo sopranoDennis Helmrich, pianoPaul Sperry, tenorIrma Vallecillo, pianoWilliam Sharp, baritoneSteven Blier, piano►Video Request Form: Schedule:

In this video I explain exactly how car dealerships rip you off. A lot of car dealerships implement the four square method, which is just a simple way to make you think that you're getting a deal. Car dealerships are a very sophisticated network of stores that know how to separate you from your money. Not all dealerships rip you off, but the ones that use the four square method do.

His academic specialization is the psychology of morality and the moral emotions.

this video I did about Yoruba Religion: references:Exodus 22:18Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. Deuteronomy 18:10-13There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the LORD, and because of these abominations the LORD your God drives them out from before you. You shall be blameless before the LORD your God. 1 Samuel 28:7-25King James Version (KJV)7 Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor.*Continue to read for an understanding of the judgment that came upon Saul for consulting a witch.* 1 Chronicles 10:13-14 ESV So Saul died for his breach of faith. He broke faith with the Lord in that he did not keep the command of the Lord, and also consulted a medium, seeking guidance. He did not seek guidance from the Lord. Therefore the Lord put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David the son of Jesse. Galatians 519 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Leviticus 19:31 "Do not turn to mediums or necromancers; do not seek them out, and so make yourselves unclean by them: I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 20:6 ESV"If a person turns to mediums and necromancers, whoring after them, I will set my face against that person and will cut him off from among his people. Revelation 21:8 ESV But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death."Isaiah 8:19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? Deuteronomy 18:9-12 ESV "When you come into the land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominable practices of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you. Psalm 1:1-6 ESV Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; ... Psalm 33:10-22 ESV The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; he frustrates the plans of the peoples. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of his heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage! The Lord looks down from heaven; he sees all the children of man; from where he sits enthroned he looks out on all the inhabitants of the earth, ... James 3:17-18 ESV But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Pretty basic question. Here's the answer I usually get from my students."Well, Professor, to protect the individual and minorities against the tyranny of the majority, they added the Bill of Rights; and they gave the power to enforce those rights to the Supreme Court."Are my students correct? The editorial boards of the New York Times or the Washington Post and many members of the U.S. Congress would say yes. Unfortunately, the answer is wrong. I say "unfortunately" because it reflects a common misunderstanding of the Constitution. And that misunderstanding has led to a serious erosion of our freedom. Let me explain. Both the Bill of Rights and judicial review -- the idea that the courts can decide if a law is Constitutional or not -- were hotly debated items when the Constitution was being drafted in 1789. The Federalists, the group led by Alexander Hamilton that wanted a national constitution, opposed including a Bill of Rights.They feared it would actually undermine what the Federalists regarded as the main protections against tyranny in the document -- the limited nature of the national government itself. The Constitution did not envision a national government of general jurisdiction -- meaning a government that could do whatever it wanted -- but rather, a government of enumerated and delegated powers -- a government that had authority over only specific areas of American life. All other powers were to be beyond the scope of the national government and reserved to the States or to the American people themselves. That's why, when political necessity forced the Federalists to yield to demands for a Bill of Rights, they took care to add two important amendments -- the ninth and tenth: "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people," and "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."These amendments reinforced the idea that the national government couldn't just assume powers it had not been specifically granted by the Constitution. Unfortunately, these amendments have not stymied the expansion of the national authority. The power grab the Federalists feared -- the national government taking more and more control over more and more areas of American life -- took place. Not immediately, but over time, and especially beginning in the second half of the 20th century. That same time frame has seen a similar concentration of power in the judiciary, especially in the Supreme Court -- so that now, most Americans think of the Supreme Court as the ultimate arbiter of almost every social and political dispute. The Founders never envisioned the court in this role.For the complete script, visit
