Life Lessons From 100-Year-Olds

We asked three unique and lovely centenarians what their most valuable life lessons were, and also their regrets.

The conversations that followed were remarkable. They talked about the importance of family, people, relationships and love. Their view on life, as an elderly citizen with a lot of experience is truly an inspiration and motivation. Enjoy the video! And please let us know what your thoughts are!

Time for a Change: Introducing irreversible time in economics - Dr Ole Peters

An exploration of the remarkable consequences of using Boltzmann's 1870s probability theory and cutting-edge 20th Century mathematics in economic settings. An understanding of risk, market stability and economic inequality emerges.

The lecture presents two problems from economics: the leverage problem by how much should an investment be leveraged, and the St Petersburg paradox. Neither can be solved with the concepts of randomness prevalent in economics today. However, owing to 20th-century developments in mathematics these problems have complete formal solutions that agree with our intuition. The theme of risk will feature prominently, presented as a consequence of irreversible time.

Our conceptual understanding of randomness underwent a silent revolution in the late 19th century. Prior to this, formal treatments of randomness consisted of counting favourable instances in a suitable set of possibilities. But the development of statistical mechanics, beginning in the 1850s, forced a refinement of our concepts. Crucially, it was recognised that whether possibilities exist is often irrelevant -- only what really materialises matters. This finds expression in a different role of time: different states of the universe can really be sampled over time, and not just as a set of hypothetical possibilities. We are then faced with the ergodicity problem: is an average taken over time in a single system identical to an average over a suitable set of hypothetical possibilities? For systems in equilibrium the answer is generally yes, for non-equilibrium systems no. Economic systems are usually not well described as equilibrium systems, and the novel techniques are appropriate. However, having used probabilistic descriptions since the 1650s economics retains its original concepts of randomness to the present day.

The solution of the leverage problem is well known to professional gamblers, under the name of the Kelly criterion, famously used by Ed Thorp to solve blackjack. The solution can be phrased in many different ways, in gambling typically in the language of information theory. Peters pointed out that this is an application of the ergodicity problem and has to do with our notion of time. This conceptual insight changes the appearance of Kelly's work, Thorp's work and that of many others. Their work - fiercely rejected by leading economists in the 1960s and 1970s - is not an oddity of a specific case of an unsolvable problem solved. Instead, it is a reflection of a deeply meaningful conceptual shift that allows the solution of a host of other problems.

ABSTRACT
We are not as smart as we think we are. Even us software developers!

What we think of as reality isn't. When we think we are being rational, we are not. When we listen to experts and trust in their wisdom, we are fooling ourselves. [...]

Aging and the Normal Brain, Dr. Carol Barnes

With Dr. Carol Barnes, University of Arizona.

As a person ages, changes occur in all areas of the body – including the brain. Typically we identify memory loss as a sign of an aging brain. But when does forgetting cross the line from normal aging to something more serious? Dr. Barnes, a leading authority on how aging affects the brain, discusses how memory is changed during normal aging, as distinguished from pathological conditions.

The Congressional Biomedical Research Caucus provides a forum where Members and staff can interact directly with preeminent researchers responsible for important scientific discoveries. Many of the stunning advances, made possible by NIH funding, highlighted in these presentations have led to improved understanding of the cause, treatment, and prevention of human disease.

Capacity Classroom: People Crisis in the Arts

We are in the midst of a people crisis in the arts. According to the Society for Human Resource Management, every time a company replaces a salaried employee, it costs 6 to 9 months’ salary. It happens far too often, and when it does, projects get stalled, institutional knowledge is lost, and progress is delayed while recruiting and training someone new. Major roles in marketing, development, and leadership sit empty. There are high standards for creative excellence on stage and in galleries, but sometimes a lack of standards, focus, and excellence when it comes to how we manage the people working to support those stages and galleries.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to have a “people-first” culture at your organization and how to nurture your best and brightest in leadership by valuing them every day. You’ll also see this in action with an in-depth look at Capacity Interactive’s journey.

Remembering and the Brain: Can Brain Scans Detect Memories?

(October 23, 2009) Stanford Professor of psychology and neuroscience, Anthony Wagner PhD, discusses how the brain supports memory for everyday events, and will evaluate whether mind reading with brain imaging can detect when a person remembers the past and how this might be used as evidence in a court of law.

John Strelecky, geboren am 13. September 1969 in Chicago, ist ein amerikanischer Bestsellerautor, Trainer, Redner und Erfinder des Konzeptes Big Five for Life. Nach seinem College Abschluss arbeitete er fünf Jahre als Strategieberater für Unternehmen. 2002 kündigte er dann seinen Job und reiste mit seiner Frau neun Monate lang um die Welt. Diese Reise änderte seine Sicht auf das Leben. Nach seiner Rückkehr schrieb er innerhalb von drei Wochen sein erstes Buch Das Café am Rande der Welt. Sein Debüt wurde eines der erfolgreichsten Sachbücher der 2010er Jahre im deutschsprachigen Raum. Auf diesen Erfolg folgten Bücher, in denen er die Philosophie hinter dem Konzept Big Five for Life erklärt: die persönlichen Lebensziele bzw. die wichtigsten Dinge, die eine Person in ihrem Leben tun und erleben möchte, metaphorisch angelehnt an die fünf großen Tiere einer Afrika-Safari (Löwe, Büffel, Leopard, Giraffe, Elefant). Insgesamt haben sich Streleckys Bücher mehr als drei Millionen Mal verkauft und wurden in mehr als 30 Sprachen übersetzt.

Gilbert & George & Hans Ulricht Obrist | Artist talk

Gilbert & George samtalar med curator Hans Ulrich Obrist om ett konstnärskap som sträcker sig över 50 år. Samtalet blir en resa genom fem sekler från 1967 fram till idag. Samtalet tar sin utgångspunkt från hur de som unga konstnärer börjar att leva sin egen konst som levande och sjungande skulpturer. Samtalet handlar vidare om deras tanke om en konst för alla, om deras arbete med tillgängliga böcker, vägen till deras alldeles unika bildspråk och om övergången från analog till digital teknik.

Samtalet ägde rum på Moderna Museet i Stockholm 7 februari 2019 i samband med utställningen Gilbert & George: The Great Exhibition som visas på Moderna Museet i Stockholm 9 februari–12 maj 2019.
