Truth Decay: What It Is and What This Political Scientist Is Doing About It

SUWANEE, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, August 7, 2020 / — Recently, the podcast Polititeen had Dr. Jennifer Kavanagh, a senior political scientist at the RAND Corporation, as a guest to discuss truth decay, or the diminishing reliance on facts and analysis in U.S. political and civil discourse.

Dr. Kavanagh is one of the top experts on this subject, and in addition to her research on U.S. military interventions for RAND, she currently heads the organization’s Countering Truth Decay Initiative, which works to truly define the major driving forces behind truth decay today, and propose research-based solutions

On Polititeen, Dr. Kavanagh spoke with teen hosts Varoon Kodithala and Damian Galvan about her work and some of the approaches to truth decay that she and her colleagues are exploring.

One of the first topics the hosts asked their guest about surrounded careers in political science. Dr. Kavanagh described her own career trajectory, which included taking some time off to work after she graduated college with a degree in political science.

Some of that time was spent working at RAND doing research, and this is part of what influenced her to pursue a doctorate in political science.

Today, Dr. Kavanagh spends her time conducting policy research that can be used to make policy recommendations.

Of course, contemporary truth decay within major information sources has produced a vacuum for reliable information that’s directly chipped at her ability to make recommendations that are actually trusted and put into practice. One of the most significant results of truth decay is that Americans no longer have a single, shared set of facts. Instead, with everyone getting their news from different sources — many of which have different agendas — objective, undeniable facts have become harder to pin down than ever.

“It’s hard to tackle major issues like coronavirus, climate change, or immigration if we don’t have a shared set of facts,” Dr. Kavanagh said. “Without that shared set of facts, it’s hard for policymakers to talk about tradeoffs, policy options. These big issues like homelessness or immigration—they’re not going to be solved in two or four or eight years. So it’s critical that we have one set of shared facts that last beyond one administration.”

The hosts also asked Dr. Kavanagh about potential solutions to the problem of truth decay, including methods that some social media platforms have started using, like flagging false or misleading information.

Dr. Kavanagh supported those measures as long as they’re being used responsibly. “Information that is objectively false—we should be able to flag that information in a way that does not infringe on free speech,” she says. “It gets a little tougher when we’re talking about information that’s presented out of context, or in a misleading way. Maybe it tells a story that’s incomplete, or that leads people to the wrong conclusion. Perhaps we label that as misleading, or provide a link to additional information.”

She also emphasized the importance of protecting free speech, while finding a way to provide some kind of governance for what is essentially a Wild West social media sphere.

“We don’t want to infringe on free speech. It’s one of the things that sets us apart even from Europe,” Dr. Kavanagh said. “But at the same time, the current media environment—especially social media—has no guard rails and no governance mechanisms. It's different than television, radio, and newspapers. All the other ways in which we consume information have governance structures—not censorship, not restrictions on free speech, but governance that helps to manage the information space. It’s worth having a discussion on what those governance mechanisms would look like.”

To end the podcast, Kodithala asked a question that has become a Polititeen staple since the inception of the podcast. “What is one quote, one saying, or one phrase that you would say to young voters — young minds who are watching our podcast today?” Dr. Kavanagh responded by posing an important question to listeners.

“Voting is the most powerful tool that we have for change,” Dr. Kavanagh said. “You may not always get your way — that’s part of a democracy is that sometimes, you know, the majority chooses something different. But, if we’re not participating, then are we really living in a democracy?” It’s a question that’s worth all of our consideration.

Kevin McDonald Novato reveals continued importance of Bay Area wildlife conservation

NOVATO, CA, UNITED STATES, August 7, 2020 / — Educator and conservationist Kevin McDonald Novato opens up about the critical importance of local wildlife conservation.

From preserving unique natural habitats to helping to curb pollution, wildlife conservation has long been a passion of popular Marin County teacher Kevin McDonald Novato. Involved in the field since college, McDonald is as keen as ever to reiterate the continued importance of conservation efforts in California's Bay Area and elsewhere across the U.S.

"I've always been passionate about wildlife conservation," explains California-based teacher and conservationist Kevin McDonald Novato, speaking from his home in northern Marin County.

Today a popular science and math teacher, Kevin McDonald Novato became heavily involved with wildlife conservation and ecosystem restoration during his time at Minnesota's Carleton College in Northfield. "I became involved in ecosystem restoration in college," reveals McDonald, "where we replanted grasslands with native grasses and wildflowers among a wealth of other projects."

Now back in California, some 2,000 miles away from Northfield's grasslands, Kevin McDonald Novato remains just as passionate about wildlife conservation. "Wildlife conservation is incredibly important across the board, and especially so here in the San Francisco Bay Area," suggests Kevin.

"The Bay Area is regarded as one of North America's most notable hotspots for biodiversity," points out Kevin McDonald Novato. Urban sprawl, however, is more and more rapidly beginning to impact the area's wildlife, destroying habitats, adding to air pollution, and contributing massively toward ongoing issues with poor water quality, he says. "Almost 500,000 acres of the natural landscape are now thought to be at risk of significant wildlife-impacting development," reveals the expert.

Because of this, it's crucial that the importance of Bay Area wildlife conservation continues to be discussed, according to Kevin McDonald Novato. Even with Endangered Species Act protections now in place, there's still much to be done to ensure the future of the region's wildlife, McDonald says. "The same is true elsewhere in California, too," adds the conservationist, "as well as across huge swathes of the rest of the United States."

Thankfully, a wealth of wildlife and nature organizations now exist in and around San Francisco's Bay Area. These include the Bay Area Open Space Council, the Big Sur Land Trust, the California Native Plant Society, the Center for Ecosystem Management and Restoration, the Committee for Green Foothills, Grassroots Ecology, the Greenbelt Alliance, Marine Life Studies, Native Bird Connections, Nature in the City, the San Francisco Naturalist Society, San Francisco Nature Education, and The Watershed Project. "It's imperative that we support these organizations and their counterparts elsewhere across the country wherever possible," Kevin McDonald Novato notes.

Educator and published author Kevin McDonald Novato was born and raised in Sonoma County, California, and later graduated from Carleton College in Minnesota, where he played on the soccer team and worked in the arboretum. Following graduation, Kevin McDonald Novato spent four years in Tokyo teaching English, studying Japanese, and learning the art of karate. He then returned to California, where he remains today, and where he's now been teaching for more than twenty years.

In his free time, Kevin McDonald Novato still plays soccer and, on the weekends, enjoys attending concerts and art shows with his wife. Incredibly well-traveled, educator and conservationist Kevin McDonald Novato has visited six of the world's seven continents and plans to add Antarctica to the list in the near future.

Once Upon a Time All Humans Had Dark Skin

Variations in human skin color are adaptive traits that correlate closely with geography and the sun's ultraviolet radiation.

Variations in human skin color are adaptive traits that correlate closely with geography and the sun’s ultraviolet radiation.

Annual mean ultraviolet-B intensity.

Annual mean ultraviolet-B intensity.

Skin color, eye color, and hair texture are the primary ways human bodies adapt to intense sunlight in the tropics

We live in a very delicate Goldilocks balance of how much solar ultraviolet-B radiation reaches Earth’s surface and how much is absorbed by the cells making up our skin.”

— Dr. Peter L. Ward, U.S. Geological Survey retired

JACKSON, WYOMING, UNITED STATES, August 7, 2020 / — Humans thrive on Earth only when they absorb just the right intensity of just the right types of solar radiation. Low-frequency, infrared sunlight keeps us warm. Moderate-frequency visible sunlight allows us to see and powers photosynthesis, causing plants to grow. But too much high-frequency ultraviolet sunlight and neither animals nor plants flourish. Life on Earth exists only because of a very delicate Goldilocks balance in the frequencies and intensities of solar radiation reaching Earth’s surface.

Earth’s atmosphere filters sunlight. The highest energy components of sunlight, including gamma rays, X-rays, and extreme ultraviolet radiation, are completely absorbed in the uppermost atmosphere where they cause ionization of nitrogen and oxygen—forming and heating the ionosphere, 620 to 62 miles above Earth.

Ultraviolet-C solar radiation is completely absorbed primarily by molecules of oxygen, forming and heating the mesosphere and stratosphere 62 to 6 miles above Earth.

Ultraviolet-B solar radiation is absorbed by ozone molecules, forming and heating the ozone layer 22 to 9 miles above Earth. Ultraviolet-B is the highest energy solar radiation reaching Earth’s surface. But normally, 98% of all ultraviolet-B is absorbed in the ozone layer. This is fortunate because ultraviolet-B has high-enough energy to cause sunburn, skin cancer, cataracts, and disruption of DNA, ultimately causing mutations in plants and animals. Thus, too much ultraviolet-B radiation is damaging and even fatal to life on Earth.

On the other hand, solar ultraviolet-B radiation, when absorbed by human skin, forms vitamin D, which is crucial for healthy bone growth and for healthy immune systems. Furthermore, ultraviolet-B is required for healthy plant development. Thus, not enough ultraviolet-B is also damaging to life on Earth.

“The crux of this delicate Goldilocks balance,” according to Dr. Peter L. Ward, a geophysicist for 27 years with the U.S. Geological Survey, “is how much solar ultraviolet-B radiation reaches Earth’s surface and how much is absorbed by the cells making up the skin of animals and the surface layer of plants.”

The intensity and duration of sunlight is greatest in the tropics, decreasing toward the poles. The primary way our bodies adapt to these changes is by adjusting skin color, eye color, and hair texture.

Our ancestors evolved from apes in the jungles of eastern Africa 6 to 7 million years ago. Around 1.2 million years ago, as the world descended deeper into the last ice age, a megadrought drove early humans into open savannah grasslands. They began to walk upright in open sunlight. They lost their body hair, evolved more efficient perspiration, and evolved short, curly, Afro-textured hair to protect their brain from the heat of direct sunshine.

But the primary evolutionary adaptation to bright sunlight is skin color produced by melanin. Melanin is a dark brown to black pigment that occurs naturally in the hair, skin, and the iris of the eyes in people and animals. Melanin is generated by exposure to ultraviolet radiation causing tanning of skin. Melanin absorbs up to 99.9% of ultraviolet-B radiation before it can penetrate deeper into the body, where is can damage tissue and DNA. Too much ultraviolet-B radiation causes depletion of folate that is required for the body to make DNA and RNA and to metabolize amino acids.

Thus, humans living in intense sunlight in equatorial regions, long before clothes were invented, developed dark skin, short, curly, dark Afro-textured hair, and brown eyes. Beginning 70,000 to 50,000 years ago, some Homo sapiens, members of our species, began migrating out of the tropics into mid-latitudes where sunlight was less intense. At higher latitudes, they evolved lower levels of melanin, leading to lighter skin, lighter eye color, and lighter hair color so that they could absorb adequate sunlight. Plus, they evolved straighter hair that blankets the head, providing increased warmth. These lower levels of melanin appear to have evolved in a heritable way in as little as 100 generations—approximately 2500 years.

There is a very high correlation between skin color and the latitude at which a population lived for thousands of years. The less intense the sunlight, the lighter the indigenous people’s skin. That is why fair skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes are so prevalent in Scandinavia.

As humans moved to higher latitudes, they developed clothing which meant less skin was exposed to sunlight, hastening decreases in melanin. They also developed diets rich in vitamin D, such as seafood, fatty meats, egg yolks, mushrooms, and, more recently, fortified foods such as milk, orange juice, and cereals.

During the last 12,000 years, after the last ice age, humans began living in the far north. Innuit developed a diet rich in vitamin D, emphasizing fatty fish and sea mammal blubber. Eurasian populations emphasized reindeer meat, organs, and fat.

Light-skinned people can produce vitamin D in their skin at rates 5 to 10 times faster than dark-skinned people. With the rapid dispersal and mixing of populations worldwide in recent centuries, up to 50% of world population today may not get enough sun and 40% of U.S. residents are deficient in vitamin D. How much sunshine is needed for a healthy body is a function of skin color—the darker the skin, the more sunshine is required.

The intensity of sunlight in the tropics has also influenced social customs. For example, the modern siesta, a nap after a midday meal, is a common way for those working outside to avoid the most intense sunshine in the early afternoon.

Thus, the existence and health of humans and plants living on Earth is determined by having just the right Goldilocks balance between how much solar ultraviolet-B radiation is absorbed by the ozone layer versus how much reaches Earth’s surface. Human bodies adapt over thousands of years to solar intensity at the latitude where their ancestors lived. Dark skin, brown eyes, and Afro-textured hair made it possible for early humans to thrive in the bright sunlight of tropical East Africa. Lighter skin, lighter eyes, and straighter, more insulating hair made it possible for humans to survive at higher latitudes as they roamed the world in search of food.

HO CHI MINH, VIETNAM, August 7, 2020 / — Children naturally acquire a language through interaction with people.

That is why Vietnamese children living overseas have a lot of difficulties in learning the mother tongue, even though one or both of their parents are Viet.

As they lack an environment to acquire new words and interact with others, they cannot speak Vietnamese properly. And if they don’t learn the language since birth, they will find it more and more challenging when growing up.

As an ex-pat Vietnamese parent, what should you do to help your children retain their mother tongue?

Teaching them on your own is not a feasible solution as you may be too busy for that. Not to mention the case your partner is a foreigner and you have to speak his or her language at home.

How about letting them take online music classes with Vietnamese coaches?

If you might not know, language learning and music are closely linked. This is because baby brains cannot tell the difference between them. Songs affect how we start speaking a word, and speeches influence our musical abilities.

On top of that, listening to catchy choruses will teach you a wide range of vocabulary along with word order. After a while, you are able to speak the language as a native. That is not to mention the fact that bilingual music helps your brain switch quickly from one language to another. Great!

You see, music is the best way to learn a language and have endless fun. Your kids are able to acquire Vietnamese naturally by learning to sing a song, taking up a musical instrument, and interacting with the coaches and other friends.

The online course is really convenient, especially if you always have your hands full. You don't have to take your kids anywhere. Simply give them a smart device connected to the Internet and they will get engaged in a class. Soon, they will be able to sing a Vietnamese song skillfully.

SEAMI is one of a few educational centers to offer online music classes with Vietnamese coaches. You can discover the vocal course at SEAMI here:

Private lessons are launched due to coronavirus







Private lessons are an opportunity not to miss the school year and all the effort of the students of the 3rd grade High School to be able to pass the exams.

Online private lessons eliminate distances. You can learn anything you want and with any private teacher you wish, wherever you are, from the safety of your home. Visit our platform!”

— Panagiotis Tzevelekidis

ATHENS, ATTIKI, GREECE, August 7, 2020 / — Private lessons are an opportunity not to miss the school year and all the effort of the students of the 3rd grade High School to be able to pass the entrance exams. The interruption of the lessons provoked a multitude of emotions and reactions, both in the student community and in the teachers and parents who suddenly saw their children's future being condemned.

Online private lessons through the use of video calls on FaceTime or Skype for example are a way not to miss their year and forget what the students of the 3rd grade High School learned.

Reliability is important, so remember to test the connection before you start teaching this way to make sure it is strong enough for your needs.

We have produced the following instructions for online private lessons:

• Take online private lessons
• Distance learning – software basics
• Security for teachers who teach online private lessons

What should you do if a student gets sick?

If the student is ill, check the terms of the contract around missed lessons. If you use the standard contract for private high school lessons, you have the right to charge for the course if you are given less than 48 hours notice.

However, there is a provision in the contract to exercise discretion in exceptional circumstances. These are not defined, which leaves you open to judge the most appropriate way of action. The same 48-hour notice (and discretion) applies if students wish to cancel online private lessons for any reason.

Private lessons due to coronavirus

As the coronavirus pandemic appears to be stabilizing, the increased demand is not extra hours in the daily work of teachers, but on their side.

Some students do not have the opportunity to read on their own, so in order to succeed in the entrance exams at school they will have to hire teachers for online private lessons.

The school semester has not started yet, but due to the closure during quarantine, parents will ask for extra help so that their children can cover their entrance exams to the universities and colleges they want.

What is the best solution for private lessons?

According to UNESCO, 29 countries closed schools nationwide in the academic year 2020, affecting nearly 391.5 million children and young people. A further 20 countries have implemented locally closed schools and, if these closures will continue nationally the next academic year 2020-2021, hundreds of millions of additional students will experience dropouts.

In place of classroom-based courses, online teachers and e-learning companies will fill the educational hole. Those who usually provide in-person teaching hope to fill in the gaps when the isolation period is over.

The government has asked parents to keep their children at home, where possible, and for schools to remain open only to those children who are in dire need of school.

How to complete online private lessons?

Offering an alternative to face-to-face lessons at school shows that you are making every effort to meet your contractual obligations. If your proposal is rejected, there may be a breach of contract, so you may be able to claim your fees.

Contact the school and parents as soon as possible to agree on which approach to take.

If the school or parent paying you under the contract closed or interrupted classes before government advice, either force majeure or frustration is unlikely, as both parties could, in theory, have a contractual obligation. is able to support members in this case to arrange the continuation of your payment.

Whatever your case may be, we urge you to clarify your position as soon as possible in order to minimize the risk to your profits.

It is highly recommended that you take online private lessons, not at home… due to coronavirus.

Online private lessons for elementary school students

Elementary students can take online private lessons with a private teacher to cover the school curriculum. This is because their parents believe that their primary school teachers do not adequately supplement the school curriculum through distance education twice a week as it happened in the last two months of quarantine. On the other hand, there are models of teachers who have started early and continue distance learning without interruption.

After the schools were closed, parents ordered e-books for their children to continue working. After a month, they found out teachers uploaded exercises to the school platform twice a week, which was a repetition of the material they already had learned at school. Children quickly lost interest in school and came out of the frame of their daily life. So parents decided to hire a private teacher, who taught the child new school material. Other parents of primary school children did the same, as they found shortcomings in the distance education organized by the class teacher.

Of course, there is always the other side. Other school teachers sent material and communicated with students via e-mail and Skype from the very beginning of quarantine.

Problems you might face with online private lessons

Elementary school students do not have the necessary familiarity with computers to organize lessons, so the presence of a parent is required. On the other hand, many teachers also needed technical support in the early days.

There is a growing number of students taking private school lessons in most countries around the world.

Whether it is to enhance basic skills, or just to keep up with the highest level schoolmates, private lessons are purely a choice of the parent and their financial condition.

In any case, private lessons, especially for primary school children, provide a good basis for their subsequent education. Whether it is to enhance their knowledge in the form of creative lessons, or to study daily tasks and lessons, the child gains an educational level.

Follow the instructions of the experts

Follow the instructions of the experts and use the online platforms so that the lesson can be done remotely, seamlessly and with absolute safety for society as a whole.
