Time is Brain on “With Good Reason”

Stroke doctors all know the phrase, “Time is brain.” Andrew Southerland discusses a new therapy that is considered a game changer in stroke treatment, helping some patients achieve a dramatic recovery of brain function after strokes. And: Cancer therapy is moving toward personalized treatment with the lowest toxicity possible for each patient. Lance Liotta is working with biomarkers that predict the possibility of cancer and aid in creating individualized therapy. Liotta was named a 2015 outstanding faculty member by The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia.

Later in the show: Blue zones are areas of the world that have been identified as having the longest expected lifespans. Reuben Rainey and Asa Eslocker explain the factors that create these “landscapes of longevity.” Plus: Today, most computers have more than one tiny silicon brain that makes them tick—this is called parallel computing. And yet, kids are still learning to program for only one “brain.” Wu-chun Feng is working on an interface that makes parallel computing much less intimidating.

Grace Beeby – This week on “The Thomas Jefferson Hour”

This week President Jefferson is interviewed by the youngest guest host to ever appear on The TJH; Grace Beeby, a freshman at Holy Names Academy in Seattle, Washington.

Grace Beeby first discovered her love of history on a middle school field trip to the Oregon Coast. There, as the wind howled around her and the rain poured down, she found herself surprisingly exhilarated to be standing quite literally in the footsteps of the great explorers Lewis and Clark. This moment ignited not only a newfound sense of adventure, but a full-scale obsession with American history. She is a devoted listener of The Jefferson Hour and an avid reader of history books and biographies. For her school’s end-of-year talent show, she brought the house down with a rap number from the hit Broadway musical “Hamilton”. Along with her continued admiration for Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, she also loves the Founding Fathers, musical theater, social justice, and drawing.

Herb Alpert – This week on Insight Daily

The legendary founder of the Tijuana Brass and A&M records chats about his latest release “In The Mood” and his history in the business.

Herb Alpert is a platinum-selling musician, song writer, record executive, fine artist, and philanthropist. After early success composing “Wonderful World” for Sam Cooke, Alpert went on to co-found A&M Records in 1962, a label which grew from his garage in West Hollywood into the largest independent record label in history. His band, The Tijuana Brass, was wildly popular throughout the sixties, with Alpert becoming the top-selling recording artist of 1966. Though Alpert’s claim to fame was his trumpet work on albums like The Lonely Bull and Whipped Cream and Other Delights , he left his mark as a record producer as well, launching the careers of major artists including Sergio Mendes, Burt Bacharach, Carpenters, Janet Jackson, and The Police.
