What Dr. Hamilton could say on
The American Diet Epidemic:

The standard American diet is disheartening and consists mainly of processed food originally meant to be able to last longer during the Industrial Revolution.

    • Half of US deaths are from heart disease.
    • Dietary risks were responsible for 11 million deaths over a period of time according to some studies.

What Dr. Hope can say in an interview on
Gender Roles in the Old & New Workplace:

That group is what I characterize as the “mens”; it is decidedly not a typo. The mens, utilizing the definition in the Time article, are itching to get out of the “kid and home sphere” where it is clean, less sticky, where time means something (I have a meeting at 1 don’t bother me; 12:55 pm– “MOMMM, the cat threw up all over your desk!”—in this world of WFH time is fluid. Meetings are not so much scheduled as let’s put it down and I hope no one gets sick; we’ll hope for the best.

According to the recent Time magazine article, “Nobody Wants to Go Back to the Office As Much As White Men,” the men they are speaking about are the definition of boomer or near boomer age white men who enjoy a level of privilege in the corporate muckety-mucky. The last two-plus years of the men’s seeing the world of children (often still too often the domain of women and primary child caregivers).

What Dr. Hope can say in an interview on
Women in Higher Education C-Suite Roles:

    • Coming off the heels of the recent story in the World Economic Forum  that reports that only 22% of the leadership positions of America’s top research universities are filled by women, even though women have acquired more degrees than men over the last 40 years, according to a new report by the Eos Foundation.*
    • Dr. Hope considers herself an “accidental CEO”—who rose through the ranks of a private graduate school—only to then become disenfranchised. Learn why!

What Dr. Hope can say in an interview on
Uvalde, an educator and mother’s point of view:

“. . . I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart. What is done cannot be undone, but one can prevent it from happening again.” –Anne Frank, The Diary of Anne Frank, 1947)

    • Seeing the truth of the Uvalde failure of grown officers to save kids with over an hour to do so—as an educator, and a mother, I cannot help but think of this quote of Anne Franks.
    • At the Uvalde board meeting last night, the parents who will be grieving for the rest of their lives, whose hearts are forever shattered said to the board and the politicians, the same question Anne Frank asks: When will enough be enough?

What Dr. Hope can say in an interview on
The Supreme Court Abortion Ruling:

    • Why are we ignoring the right to privacy which includes medical privacy?
    • Interesting how it is the same states /continuants that do not want to be told to have a vaccine to save vulnerable people but want to control women’s decision to have a baby, regardless of the mother’s situation financially, emotionally, or children (or in utero fetuses) who are already sick, as well as cases of rape, incest, etc.

What Dr. Hope can say in an interview on
Elon Musk and Social Media:

    • Elon Musk is buying Twitter . . . so there can be more free speech. This certainly puts the spotlight on social media and its continued role in shaping societies.
    • One owner should not own it. We need more oversight, transparency, and the spreading of control.

What Dr. Hope can say in an interview on
Our Culture Represented in the TV Arena:

No, the kids are not okay—and neither are the adults.
America Needs a Priority Reset.
  • We’re still a culture debating the heroism or cowardice of interpersonal violence as seen in recent celebrity news. Why is this part of the public debate?
  • Are we really still making jokes about illness, mental illness, and violence in 2022? Will Smith and Kanye West are two of the latest examples. SNL made fun of it throughout the show. Is it funny or toxic?

What Dr. Hope can say in an interview on
Domestic Violence as it pertains to the Gabby Petito story:

    • Shocking that this case has revealed that NOTHING has changed in our awareness of domestic violence and perpetrator terrorists of violence since Nicole Brown Simpson was killed. No American culture or internal police knowledge has changed, so women are still dying at a rate of 84% of all female homicides. These murders are actually FEMICIDES (the name for women partner violence that turns to murder) at the hand of a previous or current partner, love interest, or someone the woman knowingly and willingly let her into her life.
