588: An Algorithm for Success! Using Computational and Imaging Approaches to Study Cognitive Science - Dr. Aleix Martinez
Dr. Aleix Martinez is a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Director of the Computational Biology and Cognitive Science Laboratory at the Ohio State University. He is also affiliated with the Department of Biomedical Engineering and to the Center for Cognitive and Brain Sciences. The work in Aleix's lab focuses on cognitive science. They hold the view that the brain operates like a big (very complicated) computer. To understand the brain, they need to understand the algorithms that are encoded in that computer. His lab uses fMRI and computational methods to understand what areas of the brain are activated or work together to solve certain problems. Some of Aleix's favorite activities are hanging out with his family, reading, and running (he runs 50-60 miles per week!). Aleix received a Master's degree and PhD in Computer Engineering from the Autonomous University of Barcelona and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Paris. Afterward, he conducted postdoctoral research at Purdue University, and also spent some time working as a Researcher at the Sony Computer Science Laboratory in Paris before joining the faculty at OSU. Aleix and his research have been widely featured in the media by sources like CNN, The Huffington Post, Time Magazine, CBS News, NPR, and The Guardian. During our interview, Aleix discussed his research, his career, and his life outside of science.

#33 Controversies in chronic traumatic encephalopathy
Almost 5 years ago, we published a show on chronic traumatic encephalopathy and its relationship to American football. But a lot has happened since 2016. New rules in the NFL. Emerging data on how the developing human brain of a child or adolescent is even more vulnerable to pathologic changes following mild head injury. And a heightened awareness of the disingenuous campaign against contact sports among one of the most outspoken whistleblowers in the medical field. This week on the program, we have remastered and updated the 2016 program. With some additional commentary on how parenthood may yield a new perspective on contact sports. Produced by James E. Siegler. Music courtesy of Chris Haugen, Kevin McLeod, and Meydan. The opening theme was composed by Jimothy Dalton. Sound effects by Mike Koenig and Daniel Simion. Unless otherwise mentioned in the podcast, no competing financial interests exist in the content of this episode.

The History of Corruption Repeats Itself: Understanding the Mechanisms and Logistics Behind Global Power and Persuasion, Part II
“If you imagine the mind as a piece of unshaped clay, and if I’m the first person to get in there on a particular topic and mold the clay, I am so far ahead of anyone who comes after me, because they have to try to unmold it,” says Ken McCarthy. This statement pulls together and illustrates how public perception is manipulated, and why it’s so difficult to undo once it’s been done. In this episode, you’ll learn: * How universal literacy, access to printed materials, and the ability of people to generate their own printed materials had a significant impact on the power dynamic between the general public and those in power * Why, upon closer examination of the fine print on the CDC and NIH websites, the COVID-19 vaccine is not a vaccine, but experimental gene therapy * What role the Creel Committee played in persuading the American mind on a number of historical events, and how the same techniques are still used today * How the use of psychological warfare influenced American women to view smoking cigarettes as fashionable, rather than as a dirty, "unfeminine" habit Ken McCarthy is a pioneer in the world of internet marketing and was one of the foremost visionaries on how the internet would unfold. Time Magazine credited him as the person who first understood how click-through rates would be a key metric in the commercialization of the internet, and in 1994, McCarthy commissioned the first published article on video on the internet. During his time in the business world, McCarthy studied the persuasion and influence of the media on the public mind. How do you get people to show up in large numbers and pay money, go places, or even change their career? How do you change people’s perception through the media? How are psychological impressions and ideas formed? Having studied social psychology and neuroscience at Princeton University, McCarthy is well-equipped to not only answer these questions, but utilize strategy in order to implement in the real world what he learned in the classroom. To understand the COVID-19 situation, you first have to understand the context within which it has developed. McCarthy explains this context through a conversation that touches on so many subjects, including the JFK assassination, the CIA’s Operation Paperclip, the likely connection between Rockefeller, prohibition, and gasoline, the motivation behind WWI, the historical use of parades in swaying public perception, what exactly emergency use authorization is, how local politicians become corrupted, how a curated link between public health and defense kept the CDC alive, the role of the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) in influencing press and public health officers, the crime of death certificate falsification during the Nuremberg trials and how this relates to COVID-19, the adulteration of foods in the US, Kristallnacht and Edward Bernays’s book, Crystallizing Public Opinion, the history of war, how the small rural island of England rose to power, and so much more.

S2E47: Being a "witness" to climate change—w/ Dr. Evan Kuehn of North Park University
What does it mean to be a witnessing professional in the climate crisis? What responsibility do scientists, doctors, journalists, lawyers, military officers and public health officials have to speak out and share their message of truth with the world? How does the religious concept of bearing witness translate to this secular context? And what can you and I do to become constructive witnesses for climate change? _Dr. Evan Kuehn_ is an Assistant Professor of Informational Literacy at North Park University and the author of _Troeltsch’s Eschatological Absolute_ and _Theology Compromised: Schleiermacher, Troeltsch, and the Possibility of a Sociological Theology_. On this episode of Reversing Climate Change, Dr. Kuehn joins Ross to discuss the recent _Dædalus __issue on Witnessing Climate Change_, describing what it means to be a witness, how the concept shifts from a sacred to a secular context, and what risks are associated with witnessing in public as a professional. Dr. Kuehn explores Robert Socolow’s idea of witnessing for the middle to depolarize the climate conversation, explaining what it looks like to engage in situational ethics and sharing how he deals with extreme views and guillotine memes. Listen in for Dr. Kuehn’s insight around the Jewish tradition of preserving social criticism and learn what you can do to be a middle builder and serve as a constructive witness for climate change.

If Anchor ups their character cap we will add them all back in. N.B. Ross couldn't remember at the time of recording which scholar provided that insight about Jewish scripture preserving social criticism in this episode, but is pretty sure it came from Amy-Jill Levine, and most likely her Great Courses lecture series on the Old Testament. _Dr. Evan Kuehn on Reversing Climate Change Bonus Episode_ _We’re Doomed.

Murray Olds: Australia Day debate rages on again, unemployment numbers revealed
Less than a week after announcing they would no longer fly into Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, Emirates have made a sudden U-turn and announced they will resume passenger flights to the east coast of Australia. From Monday, flights will resume into Sydney, Melbourne from Tuesday and Brisbane will be back in action from Thursday. The airline’s announcement to dump all flights to Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne left thousands of Australians stranded after the major airline announced the mass cancellation of routes. “We regret the inconvenience caused to our customers in the period where we had to temporarily suspend our services,” a statement distributed by the airline read. “The pandemic has made international flying incredibly challenging, and the dynamic restrictions and requirements implemented by the different state authorities in Australia had added complexity and burden to our operations. “This led us to temporarily suspend passenger services while we engaged with various stakeholders regarding crew protocols and other operational details.” The Federal Government’s caps on the number of passengers allowed on planes into Australia have been reduced in order to further ease pressure on the nation’s quarantine facilities. This played as a deciding factor for Emirates, who cited “operational reasons” behind their flight suspension order. "Combined with the hotel quarantine and tests on arrival in Australia, this effectively means that our crew are in a bubble from 48 hours before their flight, until they return to Dubai,” the airline said. “This is an added burden for our crew as individuals, for our rostering, and operating costs, and therefore this decision was made after careful review and consideration.” The current caps in Australia are around 1500 weekly for NSW, and 500 for Queensland and WA. Chartered flights for vulnerable Australians will continue. From January 22, the government will require travellers to Australia to return a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to departure. There are around 37,000 Australians still overseas and seeking assistance to get back into the country.
