    Navigating Grief and Loss in the World of Social Media

    Navigating Grief and Loss in the World of Social Media

    Nancy Marmolejo







    Today we will be talking with Nancy Marmolejo. She is an Executive Coach who teaches entrepreneurs and leaders how to access their Deep Genius, that one-of-a-kind combination of innate strengths, life experiences and expertise that only you bring to the table.  She’s received several awards for her role as a Latina entrepreneur and has appeared on Univision, Latina Magazine, Hispanic Business, Smart Money and starting today Atenea Americana. 







    Originally had no plans to write a book on grief, yet after experiencing the deaths of three loved ones in a four-year period, Nancy saw how so many people struggled with offering condolences, especially on social media. A former teacher, she decided to create a guide to help people compose heartfelt messages that convey empathy. Her book, Don’t Say That, Say This: Navigating Grief and Loss in the World of Social Media, has been used in college courses, nursing programs, churches, reading groups as well as by everyday people looking for the right words to say. It’s currently available on Amazon as a Kindle or paperback. 







    Why grief on social media?







    Do you ever wonder what’s the best way to respond to someone who posts about an illness, death, or loss on social media? Is it rude to click “Like”? Is it possible to say too much or too little? Is there a right or wrong way to approach this?







    With the average person spending more than two hours a day on social media, chances are you’re going to encounter this situation more and more. In the pre-social media era, we’d sit down and write a well thought out sympathy card. But now we see grave news interspersed with cat videos and memes.







    How do you switch gears from scrolling and liking things to feeling empathy and offering heartfelt support to someone who’s hurting?







    “Don’t Say That, Say THIS!” addresses those issues and more.  Author Nancy Marmolejo takes her years as an avid social media user, career as an Executive Coach, background as a teacher, and life experience of losing three loved ones in the course of four years and channels it into this guide to help the everyday person navigate difficult feelings and situations as they pop up in their social media feeds.

    Blood Gold, and the illegal Mining activity on the Amazon

    Blood Gold, and the illegal Mining activity on the Amazon

    For this show, we had at the station CINCIA’s director Luis E. Fernandez. He is the Executive Director of the Amazon Scientific Innovation Center and Assistant Professor of Research (CINCIA), Department of Biology, Wake Forest University. Fernandez is a tropical ecologist and an expert in the dynamics and impact of environmental mercury in the areas of artisanal mining. During the last 12 years, he has carried out several research studies on the effects of mercury pollution in Peru and Brazil and consulted with governments of Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana, Colombia. Previously, he has held positions at the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University, the Argonne National Laboratory of the United States Department of Energy, the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) in Washington DC and Dallas, Texas.

    The presence of mercury in the Amazon region has been studied since the 1980s– mainly in Brazil– due to the exploitation of gold. In Madre de Dios, gold mining has been growing rapidly since 2000; however, there are very few studies that systematically assess the presence of mercurcy and its risk to the region and its inhabitants. Therefore, the impact assessment of mercury pollution in the region has several limitations.



    In this episode, we will be talking about the contamination problems on the “Madre de Dios” on the Peruvian Amazon, due to the illegal mining activity. CINCIA does research on the area and analyzes the issues in order to better answer and remedy the deforestation, defaunation, contamination of the area together with the social issues generated from mining.
