Since Governor Cuomo enacted a ban on hydraulic fracturing in New York, a question has lingered without much of an answer: on whom did Cuomo rely on for the “science” behind the ban? In a new video, Energy In Depth unveils the cast of characters who played an instrumental role in denying Upstate New York a fresh economic opportunity.
Catalyst for a Cure (CFC) is a collaborative team of investigators funded by Glaucoma Research Foundation. The research team is charged with finding new, specific and sensitive biomarkers for glaucoma. Leading glaucoma experts serve on the CFC Scientific Advisory Board. Four of those experts took time from their annual meeting with the scientists in San Francisco to talk about the significance of biomarkers for glaucoma, and the progress of the CFC collaborative research team. The video features interviews with Martin Raff, MD (University College London), Russell Van Gelder, MD, PhD (University of Washington), Monica Vetter, PhD (University of Utah), and Martin B. Wax, MD (PanOptica, Inc.).
When Glaucoma Research Foundation launched Catalyst for a Cure in 2002, our bold idea was to recruit the most promising young researchers from different fields to work together collaboratively to accelerate discoveries that would lead to a cure for glaucoma. We now have a proven collaborative research model that has broadened the understanding of glaucoma. Our Scientific Advisory Board intentionally sought experts outside the mainstream of glaucoma investigation to ensure a fresh perspective. In this video, three of those Advisors talk about the success of this collaborative research model. Learn more: glaucoma.org/research/
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Just like in life, there are no turn-by-turn directions when it comes to cancer research. Tyler Jacks shares the lessons he’s learned, and what they mean for all of us. Dr. Tyler Jacks, Ph.D. is the Director of the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT, an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and a Daniel K. Ludwig Scholar. Over the course of his career at MIT, Dr. Jacks has pioneered the use of gene targeting technology to study cancer-associated genes and to construct models of many human cancer types, including cancers of the lung, brain, and ovary. His laboratory has made seminal contributions to the understanding of the effects of mutations of several common cance...
One of the top scientific advisors to Pope Francis, Hans Schellnhuber, is an atheist and a Gaia believer says Dr. William Briggs, a Catholic climate scientist who was interviewed this week on The Joe Miller Show. And his Gaia beliefs aren't superficial: he openly contends that the Earth is "self-aware" and "cognizant." Schellnhuber is also a hard-core advocate for one-world government, contending that the world needs a functioning international government with an "Earth Constitution." Disturbingly, the Pope's recent encyclical also embraces international governance and controls to address man-made global warming, suggesting that Schellnhuber may be influence official church policy.

The former Prime Minister of Japan has revealed that scientific advisors to the Japanese government warned that evacuataions of as many as 30 million people up to 250 kilometers away from Fukushima would have to be evacuated in the event of a worst case scenario at the stricken nuclear plant in the country's Northeast. The proposal would have seen Tokyo itself subject to evacuation, but the idea was immediately rejected because of the chaos it would have caused...
