The Holy Grail, Nuclear Fusion with Dr. Brendan Lyons

On Today’s episode, we were joined by Plasma Physicists from Princeton, Dr. Brendan Lyons, to discuss what he has deemed “the holy grail” of energy production. On this episode, Sean and I asked Dr. Lyons a number of questions surrounding his research in the field of Nuclear Fusion, and how it works in the real world. This discussion of nuclear fusion’s implications, was followed by a live student Q/A. There, Dr. Lyons fielded questions around why he chose to be a nuclear physicist, details around the feasibility of fusion, and science in the age of Covid-19.

The Holy Grail, Nuclear Fusion with Dr. Brendan Lyons

AP US History; The War of 1812 - 1860

With the AP US history, tests one is bound to get lost in the forest of America’s complex history. We condensed the important information down into a podcast. The main point of this podcast is what happened in between the War of 1812 and The Civil War. It’s far too easy to forget the less tumultuous points in our history and we are here to cover it. The war of 1812 Compromise of 1820 Monroe Doctrine Market Revolution and new technologies (canal, factory system) Andrdrew Jackson… X Mexican American War The Seneca Falls Convention X- this can be mentioned in context of reforms of 1840s with abolition-- could all be tied to industrialization and capitalism--invention of cotton gin and expansion of slavery We used the textbook: "America's History 9th Edition" by Henretta, Edwards, Hinderaker, and Self Credits Marcus Brotman and Sean Lyons

The US Political Economy, with Dr. Luis Brunstein

Mexico, the other side of the border; with Ricardo Vollbrecthausen

The discussion begins at 10:00 Our first guest speaker is Ricardo Vollbrechthausen, Pingry class of 2012. Ricardo studied neurobiology at Columbia University, and is now living and working in Mexico. In particular, we will dive into Mexico’s strengths and weaknesses, and how they impact the lives of their citizens as well as US foreign policy. Issues will include corruption, brain-drain, slow economic growth, poor monetary policy, and more. We will also analyze how Mexico will be affected by the new USMCA trade deal, and how president López Obrador (“AMLO”) has led the country. We will also compare and contrast how and why Mexico's response to the coronavirus has been so different to most other countries. As the co-president of the Politics Club, I acknowledge Political bias is unavoidable. Regardless, the Politics Club leaders and I will make all attempts to present objective facts to our audience and provide counterpoints to ensure that no views go unchallenged. To ensure a ne...

Mexico, the other side of the border; with Ricardo Vollbrecthausen

China: Friend or Enemy? Andrew Wong Vs. Julia Fu

China, Ally or Enemy? Julia Fu vs Andrew Wong In today’s episode, Sophomores Andrew Wong and Julia Fu will be debating the contentious issue of America’s foreign policy with China. They will be asked to answer the question: What would ideal American trade policy look like? How should US foreign policy change in order to best anticipate China’s growing power, whether friend or foe. Is China uniquely dangerous from any other dictatorship? What if any blame should be laid on China for the Covid-19 crisis and what action should be taken? Andy will start this debate which will be followed by a live student Q&A I hope you’ll enjoy! If you'd like to be on the podcast, email me: mbromtan2021@pingry.org A special thanks goes to Julia and Andrew for Debating.
