Google Tech Talk March 19, 2013 (more info below) Presented by Stephen Devries, M.D. ABSTRACT New scientific advances have revealed the remarkable potency of simple strategies for optimizing our health. This talk will highlight surprising, yet highly practical nutritional and mind/body interventions that can make an enormous difference in maintaining wellness. When further steps are needed, a path to balanced medicine will be discussed-combining the best of both natural approaches and conventional medicine.

If you want to get anything done in Washington, Nestle says, you have to speak in euphemisms. Marion Nestle: I was Senior Nutrition Policy Advisor in the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion in the Department of Health and Human Services.  And this was an agency that was set up within Health and Human Services to work on chronic . . .  The particular things we were interested in were chronic disease prevention -- diet and chronic disease prevention.  And my main job was to edit a very, very large report called The Surgeon General's Report on Nutrition and Health which came out in 1988.I came there from a masters degree in public health nutrition, and this was my first job after my masters degree.  And I love to tell this story.  On my first day on the job, the person I was working for said . . . and I was to edit this report on diet and chronic disease prevention.  And he said on my first day, "No matter what this report says, and no matter what the research says, this report will never say, 'Eat less meat.'"  And I said, "Oh?"  He said, "You can't say, "Eat less meat.'  That's too controversial.  The Department of Agriculture is opposed to that kind of recommendation.  They will go to Congress and have the report suppressed if it says anything like that." So right from day one this was going to be a compromised report that was going to state everything in euphemisms.  And so the first thing I learned on my first day on the job was if you wanted to get politics done in Washington you have to speak in euphemisms.

Google Tech Talks August 19, 2008 ABSTRACT Often acknowledged as one of the fathers of Mind/Body Medicine, Dr. Miller is a physician, poet, musician, and master storyteller, whose multicultural heritage has given him a unique social, medical, and spiritual perspective. His commitment to helping us to reclaim our inborn personal wisdom, integrated with the scientific knowledge and techniques of modern medicine, has allowed him to unite seemingly disparate fields of knowledge and experience. Dr. Miller brings us a deeper understanding of how the mind and body can work in harmony to produce healing, balance and wellness. Speaker: Dr. Emmett Miller www.drmiller.com

When a fan asks what is the most revolutionary engineering challenge humanity will face in the coming decades, former engineer Bill Nye the Science Guy doesn't hesitate to tell co-host Eugene Mirman that it's climate change. But NASA astronaut Mike Massimino suggests a few other issues that engineers will need to solve as well.

Google Tech Talks March, 25 2008 ABSTRACT S.V.N. Vishwanathan - Research Scientist Regularized risk minimization is at the heart of many machine learning algorithms. The underlying objective function to be minimized is convex, and often non-smooth. Classical optimization algorithms cannot handle this efficiently. In this talk we present two algorithms for dealing with convex non-smooth objective functions. First, we extend the well known BFGS quasi-Newton algorithm to handle non-smooth functions. Second, we show how bundle methods can be applied in a machine learning context. We present both theoretical and experimental justification of our algorithms. Speaker: S.V.N. Vishwanathan - Research Scientist - Zurich S.V.N Vishwanathan is a principal researcher in the Statistical Machine Learning program, National ICT Australia with an adjunct appointment at the College of Engineering and Computer Science(CECS), Australian National University. I got my Ph.D in 2002 from the Department of Computer Science and Automation (CSA) at the Indian Institute of Science.
