Gary Taubes | Talks at Google
Gary Taubes spoke to Googlers in Mountain View on May 2, 2011 about his book Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It. About the book: An eye-opening, myth-shattering examination of what makes us fat, from acclaimed science writer Gary Taubes. Building upon this critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories, Taubes revisits the urgent question of what's making us fat and how we can change in this exciting new book. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubess crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience. Taubes reveals the bad nutritional science of the last century, none more damaging or misguided than the calories-in, calories-out model of why we get fat, and the good science that has been ignored, especially regarding insulins regulation of our fat tissue. He also answers the most persistent questions: Why are some people thin and others fat? What roles do exercise and genetics play in our weight? What foods should we eat, and what foods should we avoid? Packed with essential information and concluding with an easy-to-follow diet, Why We Get Fat is an invaluable key in our understanding of an international epidemic and a guide to what each of us can do about it. About the Author: Gary Taubes is a contributing correspondent for Science magazine, and his writing has also appeared in The Atlantic, The New York Times Magazine, and Esquire.

In 2011 Dr. Harvey was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Orebro, Sweden. ABSTRACT Empirically grounded treatment generation: Sleep and circadian dysfunction in severe mental illness Allison G. Harvey, Ph.D. Sleep and circadian dysfunctions are among the most prominent correlates of severe mental illness (SMI), yet they have been minimally studied in ways that reflect the complexity of the sleep problems experienced by people with SMI. In SMI, sleep and circadian dysfunction undermines affect regulation, cognitive function, and physical health; predicts onset and worsening of symptoms; and is often chronic even with evidence-based SMI treatment. Prior treatment studies have been disorder-focused—they have treated a specific sleep problem (e.g., insomnia) in a specific diagnostic group (e.g., depression). However, real life sleep and circadian problems are not so neatly categorized, particularly in SMI where features of insomnia overlap with hypersomnia, delayed sleep phase, and irregular sleep-wake schedules. To address these realities using basic and treatment research, the derivation of an efficient, disseminable, and empirically grounded trans-diagnostic intervention for sleep and circadian dysfunction in SMI will be described.

Scientific Problem Solving with Psychedelics - James Fadiman
http://psychedelicscience.org Help us caption and translate this video on Amara.org: http://www.amara.org/en/videos/711Y7TOU9TvH/info/ Scientific Problem Solving with Psychedelics James Fadiman, PhD James will describe how to best use psychoactive materials for enhanced problem solving, a poorly understood and under-researched area. However, there are established methods that open minds to useful solutions for real problems. He will share his personal experience as part of a group that established the basic guidelines: set and setting, substance and dosage, as well as whatever else was necessary to effectively dissolve barriers to solving hard science problems. Drawing from that research, he will describe which aspects of enhanced cognitive processes lead to successful solutions, followed by reviewing the range of problems attempted, solutions found, and the implications for renewed research. Even informal experimentation can be vastly improved by understanding how best to use these materials to potentiate new thinking about technical obstacles and to initiate conceptual breakthroughs. James Fadiman, PhD completed his dissertation at Stanford on the effectiveness of LSD-assisted therapy just as all research was shut down. During the subsequent 40-year lull, he has held a variety of teaching, consulting, training, counseling, and editorial positions. He has taught in psychology departments and design engineering, and for the past three decades at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (now Sofia University) that he co-founded. He has published textbooks, professional books, a self-help book, a novel, and a series of videos ("Drugs: The Children are Choosing") for National Public Television. His books have been published in eight languages. He was featured in a National Geographic documentary and had three solo shows of his nature photography. He sits on two non-profit boards and has been the president of several small natural resource companies. He was involved in researching psychedelics for spiritual, therapeutic, and creative uses when it was legal, and recently published The Psychedelic Explorer's Guide: Safe, Therapeutic, and Sacred Journeys and released a series of videos (with Kokyo Henkel) on Buddhism and Psychedelics. He is now conducting surveys of psychedelic use and has pioneered research on micro-dosing of a number of substances for a host of conditions (jamesfadiman.com).

Clinical Failure in Community-Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia
https://www.CABPCounts.com - CABP experts discuss clinical failure in community-acquired bacterial pneumonia, what it looks like, and how it can affect treatment outcomes. Read more: Michael Rybak, PharmD, MPH, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI – Well, regarding clinical failure and community-acquired bacterial pneumonia, in terms of definitions, clinical failure is really the failure of the patient to respond in the predictable timeframe that we normally would be accustomed to. Steve Vacalis, DO, Family Practice Medicine, Charlotte, NC – Clinical failure could be extending the therapy, going to the hospital or seeing a specialist like an infectious disease to get another opinion based on why this patient hasn't achieved the goals we set forth for that person. Stephen Brunton, Primary Care Respiratory Group, Charlotte, NC – For me, typically what we see is patients just not getting better. They'll call back after a week or two and say, you know, “I'm still not 100%,” that’s a situation where I think about changing the antibiotic or something else is going on. Michael Rybak, PharmD, MPH, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI – There may be multiple reasons why a patient may not quickly respond. But I think one definition of failure is the lack of response to the, what you believe to be the appropriate antibiotic for that particular patient. So resistance is definitely a cause of clinical failure. Teena Chopra, MD, MPH, FSHEA, FIDSA, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI – Resistance is definitely a cause of clinical failure. Resistance like macrolide resistance in the community is increasing. I'm talking about community-acquired pneumonia, the most common cause is Strep pneumo, and macrolide resistance to strep pneumo is as high as 30 to 50 percent. So, that can be a real cause of clinical failure as well. Stephen Brunton, Primary Care Respiratory Group, Charlotte, NC – Once the patient is deteriorating, I think you know the alarms go off and realize that it may be that we had the wrong antibiotic or it may be there's something else going on and this is where we really require help or admit to the hospital. Jennifer Hanrahan, DO, MetroHealth Medical Center, Cleveland, OH – So typically one of the first steps is, aside from looking for complications, to broaden antibiotic coverage. And so patients get exposed quite often to, you know, a variety of antibiotics. Charles Dela Cruz, MD, PhD, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT – Well, oftentimes some of the patients who come into our ICU come in with worsening respiratory status. Some of them require mechanical ventilation. And failure means these patients have been treated with antibiotics as an outpatient or even as an inpatient in regular floors and for some reason they come up to the ICU. Level of care has to be stepped up because their clinical course deteriorates. Lionell Mandell, MD, FRCPC, McMaster University Medical School, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada – I think it's important whether they don't improve or certainly if they start deteriorating that it's really important to re-assess why this is happening and typically we approach it as sort of a - the classic triad of the host, bug, and the drug. Gregory Volturo, MD, FACEP, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA – I think whether it’s a primary care physician or an emergency physician, we often don’t see our own failures, our own clinical failures. We’ll place them on an antibiotic and say, in the community setting, after a week, the patient will come back and they’re still not doing better; they may be prescribed another course of antibiotic, if it’s a mild to moderate disease. And the patient might get better even if there’s potential resistance. So, it’s harder to recognize resistance in the community than truly in the hospital setting. Michael Rybak, PharmD, MPH, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI – Clinicians may not have the opportunity to follow up with their patients. And that patient may actually wind up in another clinician’s office. So they may bounce from one office to another before they’re actually get response to therapy or maybe they’ll even be admitted to the hospital. Hien Nguyen, MD, MAS, University of California, Davis Health System, Sacramento, CA – There’s really a fractured nature in healthcare. From the primary care office to the ED to the hospital, and so I would say at least in our practice from a hospitalist standpoint, very rarely do you see a patient in the ER to admission to discharge. We're always working in shifts and we're almost always not seeing that patient from one moment to the next and so to judge clinical failure, you sort of have to see that sort of trend across time, I guess. Charles Dela Cruz, MD, PhD, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT – I think, you know, I think clinical failure in CAP is an important issue because I think more and more, this is a topic that is not well studied. So, it is an ongoing real challenge.

Effects of Air Pollution on Immune Function and Asthma
Dr. .JOHN BALMES of the Berkeley/Stanford Center for Children's Environmental Health shows that polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in air contribute to allergy and asthma in children. PAHs reduce the production of proteins that are important to regulating immune response. PAHs set markers through epigenetic methylation that reduce the expression of a gene known as Foxp3. This leads to more asthma, reduced lung function, and greater wheezing. This was part of a symposium organized by the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment of Cal/EPA http://oehha.ca.gov/index.html, the Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit at UCSF http://coeh.berkeley.edu/ucpehsu, and the Center for Integrative Research on Childhood Leukemia and the Environment at the University of California Berkeley http://circle.berkeley.edu.

Robert S. Langer (MIT) Part 2: Drug Delivery Technology: Present and Future
https://www.ibiology.org/bioengineering/drug-release/#part-2 Talk Overview: The traditional way of taking a drug, such as a pill or injection, often results in plasma drug levels that cycle between too high and too low. To better maintain drug levels in the effective range, scientists have developed a variety of systems that release drugs at a steady rate for days or even years. In his first talk, Bob Langer gives an overview of many of these controlled release technologies, including polymer and pump systems. Langer begins Part 2 with the story of how he became interested in drug release technologies, which is also a story of the power of perseverance. As a post-doc with Judah Folkman, and after much trial and error, Langer developed a polymer system that provided a slow and constant release of an anti-angiogenesis factor. Initially, his results were met with skepticism, by both scientists and the patent office. Today, many, many companies have developed peptide delivery systems based on that original work. Langer also describes ongoing research in areas such as targeted drug delivery and externally controlled microchips designed for drug delivery. In Part 3, Langer focuses on the materials used in drug delivery and medical devices. Many of the original materials used in medicine were adapted from completely unrelated uses and often generated their own problems. Langer describes work by his lab and others to make polymers designed for specific medical uses. For instance, a porous polymer can be shaped into an ear or nose and act as a scaffold onto which a patient’s cells can be seeded to grow a new structure. Different polymers have been successfully used as scaffolds to grow new blood vessels or artificial skin for burn victims. Speaker Biography: Robert Langer is the David H. Koch Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Research in Langer’s lab focuses on the development of polymers for use in drug delivery devices that will release molecules such as drugs, proteins, RNA or DNA at controlled rates and for extended periods of time. His lab also is working on methods to create new tissues such as cartilage, skin and liver for use in medicine. Langer has written over 1250 articles and has over 1000 patents; he is the most cited engineer ever. He has been honored with numerous awards including being one of only seven people to receive both the US National Medal of Science and the National Medal of Technology and Innovation. He is also one of only a few people to be elected to the US National Academy of Sciences, Institute of Medicine and National Academy of Engineering. He is the only engineer to win the Gairdner Foundation International Award. In 2014, Langer received the Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences and the Kyoto Prize. Langer received his BS in Chemical Engineering from Cornell University and his ScD in Chemical Engineering from MIT.

Dr. Kate Granger: "#hellomynameis" | Talks at Google
Dr Kate Granger visited Google's office in Mountain View, CA to discuss her work on the #hellomynameis campaign, whilst facing a terminal illness and continuing her work as a doctor. During a hospital stay in the summer of 2013, she made the stark observation that many staff looking after her did not introduce themselves before delivering care. This felt very wrong to Kate, so encouraged and supported by her husband, she decided to start the #hellomynameis campaign to encourage and remind healthcare staff about the importance of introductions in the delivery of care. During this talk, Kate will speak to the power of social media to drive change in our world and her experiences driving the #hellomynameis campaign. Dr Kate Granger is a Consultant at Pinderfields Hospital in Yorkshire, in the UK. She was struck down with terminal cancer 4 years ago at the age of just 29 and has defied the odds by still being here today, as well as being able to work part time as a doctor. She has also raised over $270,000 for the Yorkshire Cancer Centre through the writing of two books amongst other things and changing both the NHS and global healthcare through a campaign called #hellomynameis. Her healthcare work has reaped many accolades including an MBE, an honorary doctorate, two fellowships from different royal colleges, a president’s medal, and various inspirational awards along with a woman of achievement award.

Kessler Foundation and USC Announce Collaboration on Clinical Virtual Reality
Kessler Foundation and the University of Southern California (USC) Institute for Creative Technologies will collaborate on clinical research projects applying virtual reality technology to cognitive and motor rehabilitation research. The goal, according to USC's Albert Rizzo, PhD of the Institute's Medical Virtual Reality research group, is to conduct research to develop the evidence base to support the future of home-based rehabilitation that is effective, convenient and affordable. Kessler Foundation and the USC Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT) are an ideal match said Kessler Foundation's vice president for research John DeLuca, PhD. "Both have clinical and technical expertise in virtual reality technology and a strong research ethic. This collaboration will enable us to assess patients in controllable interactive virtual environments and test rehabilitation interventions in settings that reflect the challenges of everyday life. Understanding the impact of disability on everyday life will help us devise ways to overcome those challenges." USC-ICT has built on sophisticated, yet low-cost gaming technologies to develop interactive systems for clinical applications, including a program called Virtual Iraq/Virtual Afghanistan that shows promise for ameliorating symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. USC is also home to a NIDRR-funded Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center that focuses on using VR to address the challenges of aging and disability. Kessler Foundation's rehabilitation research focuses on the patient populations likely to benefit from virtual reality rehabilitation—brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological conditions. Foundation researchers have developed a virtual reality driving simulator to help people with disabilities relearn driving skills. The Foundation also receives major NIDRR funding for its model systems in brain (http://kesslerfoundation.org/researchcenter/tbi/modelsystems.php) and and spinal cord injury (http://kesslerfoundation.org/researchcenter/sci/modelsystems.php). On a recent visit to Kessler Foundation, Dr. Rizzo (http://kesslerfoundation.org/media/displaynews.php?id=172) and his group's lead VR designer Sebastian Koenig, PhD, installed two types of virtual reality software—2011 Virtual Office software for cognitive research in TBI and MS and Microsoft Kinect-based software (the ICT-developed Flexible Action and Articulated Skelton Toolkit (FAAST)) for upper extremity and balance impairment research and clinical intervention in SCI, TBI and stroke. "Clinical studies using virtual reality are producing results that will reshape the future of inpatient, outpatient and home-based medical rehabilitation," predicted Dr. Rizzo. "When managed by skilled clinicians, the accessibility and flexibility offered by engaging game-based therapies will likely improve the quality of life for people with a variety of disabilities." About Kessler Foundation Kessler Foundation is the largest public charity in the field of disability. Kessler Foundation Research Center focuses on improving function and quality of life for persons with injuries of the spinal cord and brain, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and other chronic neurological conditions. Kessler Foundation Program Center fosters new approaches to the persistently high rates of unemployment among people disabled by injury or disease.

Can You Practice Integrative Medicine On Insurance? Interview With Dr. Dean Ornish
You have, most likely, heard of Dr. Dean Ornish. He’s one of the pioneers who has brought integrative medicine into the mainstream. More importantly, he’s been working for over 30 years to create radical changes in the way we understand and treat heart disease. He was mastering his protocol to reverse heart disease and working to get it clinically validated in his first 15 years. The next (and most recent) 15 years, he has worked to get his protocol paid for by insurance, particularly, Medicare and Medicaid. Now, that time has come, most of the major medical insurance companies are following suit. Medicare will pay over $7,000 for a 9 week protocol (even includes yoga and exercise and very little of the program is physician driven). Will Medicare pay for Exercise? What about Yoga? Now it does... If you are a Cardiologist, or take care of patients with a diagnosis of heart disease, then this could be a game changer for your practice.

Natural Medicine at Ramila's Healing Arts Clinic http://cameo.techmagsocial.com/ramila/
http://cameo.techmagsocial.com/ramila/ Ramila Padiachy, founder and owner of Ramila's Healing Arts Clinic in Bells Corners (Ottawa) is internationally recognized as an accomplished healer, Doctor of Natural Medicine®, and public speaker. Here in Ottawa, she is a bit of a miracle worker. Since the Clinic opened in 1992, Ramila has treated countless "unknown" and "hopeless" illnesses. Her story starts with her own "hopeless" and painful illnesses, which she suffered for 15 years in her home country of South Africa. When she arrived in Canada, her search for a remedy led her to start educating herself about natural health practices. She began with reflexology, which worked wonders on her severe lower back problems. Serendipitous opportunities encouraged her to continue her studies and branch out into nuitrition. Six weeks after putting herself on a strict cleasing program, her health had achieved a miraculous improvement. Looking at her now, she positively radiates health. Who wants to be treated by a sick doctor? In the 20 years of experience at her Clinic, Ramila has developed an eagle eye for discovering root causes of ailments. She does not like guesswork. Her objective with each patient is to see improvement within two weeks. When you consider that many of the cases she sees are "untreatable" illnesses that have languished in the conventional medical system for years, this is an ambitious goal, indeed. Further, she works with her patients to determine the best treatment options for them as individuals, and evaluate the efficacy of these treatments. Treatments must work holistically and synergistically within the body to be successful. A Certified Iridologist, Certified Reflexologist and holistic allergist, Ramila also holds a Doctorate in Acupuncture from The Open International University for Complementary Medicine and a Doctorate in Naturopathy from The University of Westbrook in New Mexico, USA. In addition to her extensive specialized training in alternative medicine, Ramila studied Chemistry at the University of South Africa. She is a member of the American Naturopathic Medical Association and a member of The Canadian Council of Certified Acupuncturists. Ramila's husband, Megs, is also a cofounder and practitioner at the Clinic. Between them, they offer many methods of diagnosis and treatment, including: * Acupuncture * Reflexology * Applied kinesiology * Shiatsu * Iridology * Emotional release techniques * Nutritional healing * Weight loss through nutritional guidance * Holistic herbs * Food Sensitivity Testing and Treatment * Environmental Sensitivity Testing and Treatment For more information about Ramila's Clinic and services, contact: Ramila Padiachy, Doctor of Natural Medicine Ramila's Healing Arts Clinic 108 -- 68 Robertson Road Nepean, ON K2H 5Y8 Phone: 613.829.0427 Email: info@ramilas.com Website: http://www.ramilas.com/
