Childhood Trauma in Adulthood (19:06) Shanta R. Dube is an Associate Professor for Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Georgia State University. Shanta’s main public health research focus is behavioral epidemiology, which studies patterns of behaviors that contribute to disease and well-being. For millions of children in the U.S., poverty, neglect or abuse is a reality of everyday life, though these struggles are often hidden from view. Adult survivors often feel ashamed about and stigmatized for their childhood adversity. This makes it difficult to recognize that these events occur. While it’s easier to turn away than to face these issues, we can no longer afford to do so. Stress, mental illness, and substance abuse – all health outcomes linked to childhood trauma – occur in the U.S. today at very high rates. Shanta R. Dube explains what can be done. Humility Is the New Smart (1:07:01) Edward D. Hess is a Professor of Business Administration and Batten Executive-in-Residence at the Darden Graduate School of Business at the University of Virginia. He spent over 30 years in the business world prior to joining academia as a lawyer, investment banker, strategy consultant, and entrepreneur. Ed Hess is the author of Humility Is the New Smart: Rethinking Human Excellence in the Smart Machine Age. When America and the world entered the industrial age, brute strength became a less important characteristic and being smart became much more important. Ed Hess argues that with the Information age another characteristic is becoming more important than being ‘smart’.  Dangers of Public Wi-Fi (1:56:48) Luke Bencie is one of the most recognized security consultants anywhere in the world.  He is the Managing Director of Security Management International (SMI) and the author of Among Enemies: Counter-Espionage for the Business Traveler and Global Security Consulting: How to Build a Thriving International Practice. Mr. Bencie has been a consultant to the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Defense, Fortune 500 companies, as well as foreign governments.  In today’s busy world, convenience seems to outweigh consequence, especially with how people use their mobile devices. Using free public Wi-Fi networks, for example, comes with any number of serious security risks, yet surveys show that the overwhelming majority of Americans do it anyway. Luke Bencie explains about the dangers of public Wi-Fi and how we can avoid them.
