    New Cystic Fibrosis Treatment a “Game-Changer” | SciShow News

    {♫Intro♫} 30 years and two months ago—on September 8, 1989—researchers published three papers describing the gene responsible for cystic fibrosis. It was a huge breakthrough, and one they hoped would lead to a reliable treatment in no time. Well, it wasn’t “no time”, but the discovery has finally led to a drug that dramatically improves the lives of most people with cystic fibrosis. A new three-drug combination called Trikafta was unveiled last week in a pair of papers in The Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine. And it’s already being called a “game-changer” by medical professionals who don’t use that kind of language lightly. In fact, it looks…

    Selling Social and Emotional Learning: An Interview with Daniel Goleman

    >>Daniel: What we’re calling today social and emotional learning actually has many of its roots back in the ’80s when kids were having lots of problems with things like drugs, unwanted teen pregnancies, drop outs, violence in schools and the federal government mandated programs to prevent these things. There was a war on bullying, there was a war on drugs, there was a war on violence in schools and about the time I as a science journalist at the New York Times was looking around at what I ended up calling emotional intelligence.

    The Articles of Confederation – Becoming the United States – Extra History – #1

    The United States Constitution created a republic that has lasted for well over 200 years, but it was not the first national government of the United States of America. That distinction goes to the short-lived Articles of Confederation, without which the Constitution as it exists today might never have been formed. [Music] The British Parliament had just about had it with their American colonists. First they ran up enormous debts fighting the French, which, …respectable enough, I guess, but they now refused to pay the taxes that would fund it, and they even had the gall to argue that Parliament had no right to issue taxes to them at all,…
