Congressman Huffman Stops By KHSU

Congressman Jared Huffman stopped by KHSU to talk with Econews Report's Tom Wheeler of EPIC. “The way it should work, there should be a constructive friction between the parties as we try to get things done and we listen to each other. When that system works we eventually find common ground and that’s not happening right now,” says Huffman during his interview.

Be in the studio audience for a recording of My Favorite Lecture this Thursday evening at Plaza Grill in Arcata.  

Social values and beliefs affect the questions we ask, and the ways in which we seek to answer them.  This effect is readily apparent as it relates to the study of sexuality.  Dr. Myers' lecture will explore how feminist approaches to science encourage us to remember that our experience, expectations, and motivations affect every level of our work.  The method in its purest form may be objective, but we have not demonstrated the ability to apply it to questions of human behavior without implicit bias.  

My Favorite Lecture is an interdisciplinary lecture series in which Humboldt State educators share some of their favorite material with a live community audience in downtown Arcata, California. A Taste of Arcata appetizer reception, courtesy of Arcata Main Street, precedes the lecture.

The trouble started for Lisa when she took a blood pressure pill and one to control seizures, along with methadone, a drug used to help wean patients off heroin.

"I inadvertently did the methadone cocktail and I went to sleep for like 48 hours," Lisa says, rolling her eyes and coughing out a laugh. "It kicked my butt. It really kicked my butt."

"The Art of the Deal" appears to have edged out the "The Art of War" for now, as the presidents of the U.S. and China spoke of agreements reached at their summit at President Trump's resort in Palm Beach, Fla., last week, including an apparent deal to cooperate in grappling with the North Korean nuclear issue.
