Science and Politics

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 09:00:00 +0000

Scientists across the country are taking to the streets this weekend to march for science. The march was inspired by the success of the Women's March in January and is meant to be a response to political policies that are at odds with scientific findings and principals. However, some scientists argue that science should remain unpolitical, and that a march undermines the credibility of the field. Join us today as we discuss the March for Science and the intersection of science and politics with a panel of guests. Guests: Christian Büttner , OSU research graduate student, organizer of the March for Science - Columbus Laura Sammons , freelance science writer, organizer of the March for Science - Columbus Erik Nisbet , Associate Professor, Ohio State School of Communication Roger Pielke , Professor of Environmental Studies, University of Colorado(image)

Wellness Wednesday: School Lunch Shaming, Loneliness, Marathon Training

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 09:01:00 +0000

New Mexico recently passed a bill that prohibits "lunch shaming" in public schools. Lunch shaming happens when a child can't pay a school lunch bill and is denied food. Across the country, children are often punished in some way for not being able to afford lunch. In Alabama, a child who could not afford lunch was stamped with the phrase "I Need Lunch Money." In some schools, kids are required to clean cafeteria tables or their food is simply thrown away if they are short on funds. Join us today as we discuss this and the latest in wellness news. Guests: Patricia Keane , president, New Mexico Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Jennifer Lange , president, School Nutrition Association of Ohio John Cacioppo , psychologist, University of Chicago Tom McGlynn , founder, RunCoach(image)

The epidemic of fake news is relatively new but has already largely impacted the way people consume and disseminate information online.

Genetic Testing

Thu, 13 Apr 2017 09:01:00 +0000

23andMe was the first genomic company to receive FDA permission to provide consumers with information about potential genetic diseases or conditions, giving it a leg up over other companies in the genetic testing industry.

However, genetic testing companies are having to contend with issues like privacy and testing during pregnancy. Today we'll discuss the merits of genetic testing and the ethical issues it raises with a panel of guests.
