    Human Factors Engineering: What is it, and How it Can Lead to Safer Interactions

    in Technology

     


    Welcome to TECH Talk, Texas Style – “Because Technology Doesn’t Commercialize Itself”! We’re broadcasting from the offices of TECH Fort Worth.


    TECH Talk is online to bring to you the best and the brightest: news and information, people and their experiences, expert advice and regional resources. We do this to link talent, technology, capital and know-how so that we can be agents of change to accelerate the development of new technologies and to strengthen Texas economies.


    TODAY’S GUEST:


    I’m visiting today with Michael Wiklund and Jonathan Kendler with UL Life & Health about Human Factors Engineering (HFE) and how it can lead to safer interactions with users and medical devices. We’re going to explore how HFE applies to the development of medical technology and how it can make these devices safer and more effective.

    Bridges Programming, geo engineering watch, with Bonfire

    in Energy

    In this edition of Landslide, Bonfire  will spend the first hour with Dane Wigington, lead researcher at www.geoengineeringwatch.org. They'll define geoengineering and, in particular, the technique known as Solar Radiation Management. What are its effects on fundamental Life Processes such as photosynthesis, absorption of Vitamin D and on the  rise in diseases such as asthma, autism, and Alzheimer's? What is "Global Geoengineering Governance"? And, by its own admission, why does the Pentagon intend to "Own the Weather" by 2025 (or sooner... like... now!)?  What are the military uses of the atmosphere, including HAARP (the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program)? Why are these programs which are so visible in the Sky... so well hidden...from human consciousness... and... further... "obscured" by willful ignorance?


     


    In her second hour Bonfire will further address the phenomenon of "things we cannot/will-not talk about".  And she'll be funny and delightful, as needed, to find a balance as we teeter on the edge.

    OBAP 's ACE Academy and Remembering James Jamesie Brewster

    in Culture

    Welcome OBAP (Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals)  Aviation Career Education Academy (ACE). OBAP ACE Academies are co-sponsored with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other select organizations or institutions.


    Their academies include many interesting educational activities and field trips. During an OBAP academy, students can expect to participate in activities that feature STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) components. They also include trips to aviation related facilities and receive tours of areas the general public normally never see. Also, their academies offer students the opportunity to perform actual flights in a general aviation aircraft. Traditionally, these flights are easily the highlights of a student's experience.


    *********


    Born on St. Croix in 1929, James Jamesie Brewster is known throughout the Caribbean as the undisputed King of Scratch Band Music. He is known for his humorous, provocative and playful ompositions and for his lively performances. He has performed throughout the Caribbean and in Europe and has recorded a number of albums over the past fifty years.


    Surprisingly, when Jamesie was younger, his father only allowed him to play percussion and not guitar. Jamesie was determined to prove to his father that he was capable of playing guitar and so made his own out of a sardine can and a piece of white pine lumber.


    With a hand-carved keyboard and key-head and strings made out of twine from an old sack of flour, this guitar has become his signature instrument. In the six decades that have followed, Jamesie has continued to use this type of guitar when performing and recording music, although not exclusively.


    Jamesie is a Crucian from the instant he wakes up and in the way he eats, dresses, sits, smokes, talks. He makes kitchen implements out of mahogany, makes musical instruments out of food tins, makes melee out of news.

    Mold vs. Ghosts? Dr. Shane Rogers Discusses Air Pollutants and Spirits

    in Paranormal

    Friday, May 29th    10pm ET / 9pm CT / 7pm PT


    Dr. Shane Rogers is an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering at Clarkson University. His research focuses on biotechnologies for soils and water treatment and residuals management, including genome-enabled molecular technologies for monitoring soils, air, and water quality. He is currently studying the possible links between reported house hauntings and indoor air quality.


    Are we just hallucinating spirits and ghosts caused by mold? Let's openly discuss this new study and define the terms that the Clarkson University has determined for their results.


    This will be an interesting interview! Be sure to join us!

    Myeloma Crowd Radio/MCRI: Dr. Frits van Rhee, UAMS and Dr. Stephen Russell, Mayo

    in Health

    The measles virus used successfully for a patient with relapsed myeloma is now a well known and exciting story shared on maintstream media. Dr. Frits van Rhee MD PhD MRCP,  FRCPath and Dr. Stephen Russell, MD PhD FRCP, FRCPath take the success one step further with a Phase II trial of the measles virus with further engineering in patients with relapsed/refractory, high-risk multiple myeloma. Their work will help determine which patients will respond to the treatment and which ones will not and will also determine how to make the therapy more effective.

    Closing the "Opportunity Gap" Through Mentoring Programs

    in Training

    How is it that some people wind up on top of the social heap and others wind up on the bottom? This question, which sociologists refer to as social mobility, has been studied for decades. Recently, the prominent sociologist Robert Putnam has published a new book that examines social mobility, income equality and the American Dream.


    What he uncovers is disturbing. Putnam says that social mobility is poised to plunge in the years ahead, shattering the American Dream.


    Why is this so and what can be done about it?


    On Friday, May 29, at 9:00 a.m. (PDT) I will be discussing this topic with my guest Mary Fernandez, the President of MentorNet, a division of Great Minds in STEM™. MentorNet implements a national, guided, one-to-one mentoring program that matches STEM students with STEM professionals in high-quality, virtual mentorships. By the way, STEM is the acronym for science, technology, engineering and math.


    This podcast is produced in cooperation with the University of Massachusetts at Boston's Chronicle of Evidence-Based Mentoring and Vince Reardon.

    Metalsmith Benchtalk with Jewelry Artist, Writer and Teacher Julia Lowther

    in Art

     


     


    Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday May 21st, 2015 at 3:00 pm PST is jewelry artist Julia Lowther.


    We invite you to listen to this LIVE interview and participate in this live interview by logging onto the chatroom on Blogtalkradio.com or by sending a message to Whaley Studios via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.  


     


    About Julia:


    "I was born in rural Virginia. At 8, I moved with my family to the remote Quaker community of Monteverde in the tropical mountains of Costa Rica. If things broke, you fixed them, if you needed something you didn’t have, you created it out of what you did have or did without it. From this up bringing I inherited a delight in the engineering puzzles of inventing and building, and an easy patience with the general processes of making things.


     


    Growing up, my hands were always busy with embroidery, crocheting, weaving, and other fiber arts. I received professional instruction in painting and drawing as well, but only discovered metal work and jewelry when I moved to Seattle, Washington in 1996. Early in my experiments with metal I gravitated to chains.  The manual dexterity gained from decades of handwork and needlework served me well, and translated nicely to linking and knitting with wire.


     


    Today I still live in Seattle, now writing articles and teaching classes on chain making, with work showcased in numerous books & magazines."
