Into the Fray Episode 128: Shooting Glasses for Older Eyes

Learn What You MUST Know Before Leaving Home with a Gun:


As we age we have trouble seeing things close up. These top bi-focal glasses from SSP eyewear help to solve that problem while you are shooting. They are not perfect, but they offer a chance to improve your shooting. If you are having trouble focusing on the front sight, you might want to try the “top bifocals” from SSP Eyewear. By putting the magnifier on the top of the lens, these glasses allow shooters who can’t quite focus on the front sight to get a crisp, clear image.

When Crime Pays: Money and Muscle in Indian Politics

Skip ahead to main speaker at 7:34

About the book: In India, the world’s largest democracy, the symbiotic relationship between crime and politics raises complex questions. For instance, how can free and fair democratic processes exist alongside rampant criminality? Why do political parties recruit candidates with reputations for wrongdoing? Why are one-third of state and national legislators elected—and often re-elected—in spite of criminal charges pending against them? In this eye-opening study, political scientist Milan Vaishnav mines a rich array of sources, including fieldwork on political campaigns and interviews with candidates, party workers, and voters, large surveys, and an original database on politicians’ backgrounds to offer the first comprehensive study of an issue that has implications for the study of democracy both within and beyond India’s borders. Order a copy.

Milan Vaishnav is a senior fellow in the South Asia Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, D.C. His primary research focus is the political economy of India. He has have previously worked at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Center for Global Development. Vaishnav has also taught at Columbia, Georgetown, and George Washington Universities. He received a Ph.D. in Political Science from Columbia University. You can follow him on Twitter @MilanV.

MH370: Was Air Traffic Control deliberately misled?

RAeS Brussels Branch lecture held at Eurocontrol on the topic of the MH370 Flight and whether ATC was deliberately misled.

Engineers from CAPTIO will illustrate a plausible trajectory of flight MH370 that might have taken advantage of the shortcomings in civil and military air traffic control – and the antiquated air/ground communication systems in particular. People in command of the flight – the pilots? hijackers? – would have been able to fly practically undetected. One thing is known from the Inmarsat communication watchdog data: the flight ended in the Indian Ocean. The three CAPTIO members will present the latest results from their analyses, following on the presentation they made to the RAeS Paris Branch on 9 October 2018.

Into the Fray Episode 306: Stop the threat!

In this video you see a knife-weilding attacker charging at a police officer and getting shot six times for his efforts. The attacker went down, only to get back up and charge the officer again. This time, the officer, for whatever reason, chose not to shoot and the attacker was able to get on top of the cop and apply a rear naked choke and put the knife to the cop's neck. What we didn't show was the other officer taking a hostage shot to stop the threat and end the danger. The truth of the matter is the no handgun round has the power to give you that lightning-bolt effect you see in Hollywood movies. Remember, you may use deadly force to stop an imminent deadly threat. If you use force and the threat stops you must stop using force, but if the threat returns you may once again use force to stop the threat. You don't know what damage your rounds will do to an attacker. Keep shooting until the threat stops. Then move to a position of tactical advantage and, if the threat returns, shoot again until it stops. You can see from this video what that is important.

Episode 121: How Well Does the Constitution Protect Liberty? (with Sheldon Richman)

Sheldon Richman joins us for a discussion on the origins of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. Why are these documents venerated by many libertarians?

Is the Constitution a document that originally meant to limit government? Did the Articles of Confederation do a better job? Sheldon Richman joins us this week to talk about the origins of the American government.

Is it possible to write a constitution that’ll keep government in check forever?

Show Notes and Further Reading

Richman’s original blog posts on the subject, “The Constitution Revisited” and “The Bill of Rights Revisited.”



Jeffrey Rogers Hummel’s work is referenced often in this episode. Here’s an article he wrote with William Marina in the April 1987 issue of Reason entitled “Did the Constitution Betray the Revolution?”


Gordon Wood’s book on the American Revolution, The Radicalism of the American Revolution, is also mentioned, as is Merrill Jensen’s book The Articles of Confederation: An Interpretation of the Social-Constitutional History of the American Revolution, 1774-1781.

hardwear.io 2018: Bitfi - You Wouldn't Steal My Cloins by Andrew Tierney (@cybergibbons)

You may have heard of Bitfi. The one-and-only truly unhackable hardware wallet, backed by the one-and-only inventor of cybersecurity, John McAfee. They were so confident that no-one could hack it that they set up a $100,000 bounty, which quickly rose to $250,000, and finally $20,000,000.

Unhackable is a very bold claim, and one we quickly found didn't stand up to scrutiny. It turned out to be based on an Android phone, running a couple of custom APKs. It was rooted in under a day, backdoored a few days later, and finally, a cold-boot attack was developed.

Andrew Tierney (@cybergibbons) talked about some of the social media circus, some of the ethics, and explained how the attacks actually worked for Bitfi at hardwear.io - Hardware Security Conference & Training, The Hague, Netherlands 2018.

Virtual Insights: New Approaches to American Art

What does it mean to be defined as “American” within museums today? Artworks in the museum’s current exhibition American Perspectives speak to America’s complex social, political, and artistic histories and the issues that have shaped art and society in the United States past and present. Join curators Sylvia Yount, Layla Bermeo, and Kimberli Gant as they reflect on the changing landscape of American art and how they are actively re-envisioning more expansive and inclusive narratives within each of their respective institutions. A Q&A session follows moderated by Emelie Gevalt, Curator of Folk Art.

Layla Bermeo is the Kristin and Roger Servinson Associate Curator of Paintings, Art of the Americas, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Before joining the MFA in 2016, she co-curated the Black History/Art History Performance Art Series at Harvard University, held curatorial fellowships at the Williams College Museum of Art and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and served as a guest curator at the African American Museum in Philadelphia. At the MFA, Layla has co-organized Collecting Stories: Native American Art (2018-19), curated Frida Kahlo and Arte Popular (2019), and mentored a team of youth curators who developed the current exhibition, Black Histories, Black Futures. She holds a BA from Northwestern University and graduate degrees from the Williams College Graduate Program in the History of Art and Harvard University. Last year, WBUR, a National Public Radio News Station, named Layla as one of the 25 millennials of color impacting art and culture in Boston.

Kimberli Gant is the McKinnon Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art at the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, VA. She was previously the Mellon Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Arts of Global Africa at the Newark Museum, in Newark, NJ, and has held curatorial positions at UT’s Warfield Center for African & African Diaspora Studies, The Contemporary Austin, and the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Art (MoCADA) in Brooklyn, New York. Her many exhibitions include Wondrous Worlds: Art & Islam Through Time & Place (2016), De-Luxe (2012), There is No Looking Glass Here: Wide Sargasso Sea Re-Imagined (2010), and Johannesburg to New York (2008). Her scholarly work has been published widely in journals, exhibition catalogues, and academic books including Anywhere But Here: Black Intellectuals in the Atlantic World and Beyond (2015). Kimberli received her PhD in Art History from the University of Texas Austin, and holds both an MA and BA in Art History from Columbia University and Pitzer College.

Sylvia Yount is the Lawrence A. Fleischman Curator in Charge of the American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she is responsible for the administrative and curatorial oversight of the department of historical African American, Euro American, Latin American, and Native American art, from the colonial period to the early-twentieth century. Before moving to the Met, she held curatorial leadership positions at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, in Richmond, and the High Museum of Art, in Atlanta. She began her curatorial career at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, in Philadelphia. In addition to completing pivotal collection reinstallations at her former institutions, Yount has organized major exhibitions on Cecilia Beaux, Maxfield Parrish, and American modernism, among other topics focused on women and artists of color in regional and national contexts. She is currently co-curating exhibitions of historical Native arts, Winslow Homer, and the late nineteenth-century New York art world. Yount lectures and publishes widely on late nineteenth- and twentieth-century American art and culture as well as on issues of curatorial responsibility and museum practice.

Support for 2020 remote public programs is provided by Art Bridges and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

Cobotic Responses – Drones to the rescue: IET India Digital Conversations

Cobotics is an emerging technology where robots and human beings work together to do tasks in synchronisation. As smart assistants, cobots can perform repetitive tasks with consistency, accuracy and speed, thus helping humans to perform a task. Drones are playing a key role by helping authorities prevent further spread of the global health pandemic. From surveillance and broadcast to spraying disinfectant and checking temperatures, drones have played a major role in curbing the spread of the pandemic.

In this digital conversation, our expert panel of #drones and #UAV addressed questions like: Is our drone policy in tune with cobotic response? How to leverage a situation like this to make India a global home for drone technology? How effective are drones in crisis management and many more.
