  1. “Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers: Stress and Health” by Dr. Robert Sapolsky

    Science writer, biologist, neuroscientist, and stress expert Dr. Robert Sapolsky presents the inaugural Fenton-Rhodes Lecture on Proactve Wellness.

    Sapolsky states that our bodies’ stress response evolved to help us get out of short-term physical emergencies - if a lion is chasing you, you run. But such reactions, he points out, compromise long-term physical health in favor of immediate self-preservation. Unfortunately, when confronted with purely psychological stressors, such as troubleshooting the fax machine, modern humans turn on the same stress response. "If you turn it on for too long," notes Sapolsky, "you get sick." Sapolsky regards this sobering news with characteristic good humor, finding hope in "our own capacity to prevent some of these problems… in the small steps with which we live our everyday lives."

    This lecture was recorded on September 22, 2016 at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts’ Colwell Playhouse as part of the Pygmalion TechFest

  5. The effect of trauma on the brain and how it affects behaviors | John Rigg | TEDxAugusta

    In his work with trauma patients, Dr. Rigg has observed how the brain is constantly reacting to sensory information, generating non-thinking reactions before our intelligent individual human brains are able to process the event and formulate a self-driven response.

    John is a professional musician, who became a physician in his 40s.

    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

  6. Palihapitiya: If I was at FB today, I would wonder what changed from 6 months ago

    Virgin Galactic chairman and billionaire tech investor Chamath Palihapitiya comments on yesterday’s siege of the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Trump. Subscribe to CNBC PRO for access to investor and analyst insights on Facebook and more:

    Early Facebook executive Chamath Palihapitiya called out the social media giant for failing to regulate its product despite the ongoing misinformation and threats that have thrived on its pages over the past few years.

    “What I’m thinking to myself is that if I was working at Facebook today, I would be confused, and largely because I would wonder what changed from six months ago, one year ago, 24 months ago and today. The disinformation was the same, the amount of vitriol that flowed through some of the groups was the same. Their ability to organize was the same. Storm the Capitol existed before they actually stormed the capitol,” the founder and CEO of investment firm Social Capital said Thursday during CNBC’s “Halftime Report.”

    False information that started on dark corners on the internet made its way to social media and to conservative news outlets, and then were falsely repeated by President Donald Trump, creating a loop that sustained conspiracy theories. Social media companies, including Facebook and Twitter, have been called…
