The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) sat down with researcher Dr. Robert Sapolsky to discuss his ground-breaking research and to answer the question: Can we learn to handle stress by observing animals in the wild? In trying times, the answers may be with the life and death decisions made by these animals and their predators.
Dr Robert Sapolsky is a professor of Neurobiology and Primatology at Stanford University. He travels to Kenya every year to study the behavior of wild baboons. This is a story on his amazing study of a unique incident that happened with one of his baboon troops taken from a National Geographic film called 'Stress: The Portrait of a Killer'. I love the social implications of this.

Stanford Professor Robert Sapolsky, posits that depression is the most damaging disease that you can experience. Right now it is the number four cause of disability in the US and it is becoming more common. Sapolsky states that depression is as real of a biological disease as is diabetes.

Does Iran possess the ability to produce nuclear weapons? Both Bob Baer and Victor Hanson agree that it does. On the questions that flow from this assertion, agreement is more difficult to find. What does Iran hope to accomplish by developing the bomb? Can the United States live with a nuclear Iran? Can Israel? Israeli Defense Minister Ephraim Sneh in an October interview asserted "If no crippling sanctions are in place by Christmas, Israel will strike...if we are left alone, we will act alone." Does Israel possess the ability to destroy the Iranian nuclear program? With each month bringing another deception and diversion from Iran, what can the United States do to prevent a conflagration in the Middle East? A classicist and military historian, Victor Davis Hanson is Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford. He is the author of many books, including A War Like No Other: How the Athenians and Spartans Fought the Peloponnesian War. Robert Baer spent twenty years in the Central Intelligence Agency as a field officer covering the Middle East. Mr. Baer is now a journalist and author. His latest book is The Devil We Know: Dealing with the New Iranian Superpower.
In a talk for the Stanford Help Center, Prof. Robert Sapolsky explains why depression, the kind that doesn't go away has biological origins, akin to diabetes.

FBI Director Robert Mueller assumed his role on September 4, 2001, only a week before the 9/11 attack. In his talk, he discussed efforts to radically change the focus and mindset at the FBI following the attacks, shifting from a reactive stance to one that prevents such events from occurring in the future. He discussed the shift in priorities immediately following 9/11, as well as leadership efforts in the years since to solidify and improve upon those initial changes. He talks about the challenges of running a large government agency, and some leadership lessons he has found to be useful for those managing in any large organization. The event was sponsored by the Stanford GSB's Center for Leadership Development and Research (CLDR) and the Public Management Program (PMP), as well as the Stanford Law School.

The Man Behind the 2nd Biggest Securities Fraud (just behind Madoff) was endorsed by Fox News Sean Hannity. The Associated Press also reports that Stanford owes $212 Million in federal taxes, has four federal tax liens filed against his properties for 2007 and 2008 and the FBI is additionally investigating whether he laundered money for the Mexican Drug Cartels.
Cable and radio personality Sean Hannity has close ties to Robert Allen Stanford under investigation by US security regulators. The New York Times reported that US securities regulators had accused three top Stanford executives of fraud. Bravo for Keith Olbermann, host of MSNBC Countdown for pointing out one of many hypocrisies coming from the extreme right. Just this week, Hannity has been blasting the Obama administration for ethical lapses.

Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2008/12/15/Uncommon_Knowledge_John_Taylor Stanford economist John B. Taylor weighs the risks of the Federal Reserve increasing the U.S. money supply to stimulate the economy. Taylor argues that the real problem lies with financial institutions' unwillingness to lend to one another. "That's not going to be fixed by creating more money," he says. ----- What are the lessons we learned -- and perhaps unlearned -- that permitted the American economy, once so convulsive, to grow in such a robust and sustained way for the last quarter of a century? Economist John Taylor discusses today's financial crisis, which he labels the most "unusual" crisis since the Great Depression. He identifies a number of factors contributing to the crisis, but locates its origins in the monetary excesses of the Fed. In outlining what the government should and should not do in response to the crisis, he concludes that it will be tragic if we forget all we have learned over the past two and a half decades about the importance of the private sector and the free market - Hoover Institution John B. Taylor is the Mary and Robert Raymond Professor of Economics at Stanford University and the Bowen H. and Janice Arthur McCoy Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution. He formerly served as the director of the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, where he is now a senior fellow, and he was founding director of Stanford's Introductory Economics Center. Taylor's academic fields of expertise are macroeconomics, monetary economics, and international economics. He is known for his research on the foundations of modern monetary theory and policy, which has been applied by central banks and financial market analysts around the world. He has an active interest in public policy. Taylor is currently a member of the California Governor's Council of Economic Advisors, where he also previously served from 1996 to 1998. In the past, he served as senior economist on the President's Council of Economic Advisers from 1976 to 1977, as a member of the President's Council of Economic Advisers from 1989 to 1991. Peter M. Robinson is a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, where he writes about business and politics, edits Hoover's quarterly journal, the Hoover Digest, and hosts Hoover's television program, Uncommon Knowledge.

May 16, 2008 lecture by Rob Miller for the Stanford University Human Computer Interaction Seminar (CS547). Rob Miller discusses some of the explorations into keyword programming in the web automation domain, and also in other domains such as Java development. One surprising result is that programming language syntax often has relatively little information content, and can be inferred automatically from only a handful of keywords -- allowing us to design programming systems that reduce the learning and complexity burdens on their users.
