Meet Jon Levin, dean of the Stanford Graduate School of Business, economics professor, and eternal optimist. Hear his thoughts on the business world, innovation in emerging economies, the role of big tech, and how the GSB is preparing students to meet the challenges of the global economy — from climate change to inequality.Jon Levin grew up in an academic family, but he never imagined he'd be leading one of the most prestigious business schools in the country. An economics professor by training with degrees from Stanford, Oxford, and MIT, he became dean of the Graduate School of Business in 2016. From this unique vantage point and with his researcher mindset, he believes that businesses have both a significant opportunity to develop and deploy technology to improve people's lives as well as a responsibility to mitigate its potential harm.“If you look at the history of the last 150 years, it's the most extraordinary period in human history with standards of living doubling every 30 years, every generation,” Levin explains. “Today you look at the pace of change in innovation and it's happening everywhere in the world. The opportunity for businesses, for business leaders, to help use that technology in ways that will continue to double and increase people's standards of living is extraordinary.”Levin also believes that emerging economies with digital infrastructures in place have opportunities to leapfrog the developed world by going straight to the consumers and their cell phones without having to overcome existing institutions and infrastructure. Levin says, “If you think about areas like finance or education, you don't have all of the legacy businesses in emerging markets, and so there's an opportunity to go in and provide services to people that just go straight to digital.”It's no surprise that Dean Levin is a huge proponent of getting an MBA based on his fundamental belief that business can be a force for good in the world and the school's mission to instill students with a broader sense of responsibility to society beyond just doing well in their careers. “An MBA program is just the most amazing thing to do because you get all these different skills that enable you to be successful in many things,” says Levin says. “It's like having 20 jobs in two years, you get to see what it would be like to be an operator, an entrepreneur, an investor, to work in a nonprofit, to go into a social venture, to work on energy, real estate, every industry you see all of that.”Listen to Dean Levin's perspectives on the future of business and business education, both on the Stanford campus and around the world with programs like Stanford Seed.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Rob Siegel is a lecturer at Stanford University's Graduate School of Business who specializes in teaching strategy and innovation for both large and small-scale businesses and companies. He is the author of the book The Brains and Brawn Company [https://amzn.to/3bY1CJz] which uses the brain and body as metaphors for ways that companies can be successful holistically. Siegel has spent time researching the ways in which technology changes things in the business sector and he has explored how companies can integrate digital and physical solutions for their client base and customers. It's a fascinating career to have but Siegel tells me that he never had an idea that he'd end up here and he found his work by happenstance. “When I was a teenager, I was just a big, fat loser,” he says. “I was just trying to think about how I was going to get beer and try to meet girls. And I didn't really know what I wanted to do. I entered UC Berkeley as a seventeen-year-old, and my roommate was working for a software company. This was the mid-eighties and I had played with computers, but I didn't really know software or how it was made. I was thinking about studying engineering and I said, okay I need to make some beer money now that I'm in college and so I ended up going to work for the software company part time and I loved it. I loved technology; I loved the people. I loved the energy.”Special thanks to our sponsor WeWork!I love my WeWork office because it perfectly suits my entrepreneurial lifestyle and business model.

Today, we are joined by Patricia Angus, Founder and CEO of Angus Advisory Group LLC. For more than 25 years, Patricia has provided legal and strategic advice to global families and firms with multi-generational businesses, trusts, and philanthropies. She and Arden discuss estate planning with mental health and addiction issues in mind. Patricia outlines the first steps that families need to take before starting their estate plans. She explains the important mix of legal and psychological training that advisors need to best serve their clients. Listen for insightful information and tools that families can use when they begin their estate plan preparation.    IN THIS EPISODE:    [02:22] Learn about the Angus Advisory Group and how to create an estate plan with mental health and addiction issues in mind.  [05:50] Issues that advisors face when they work with clients who have substance use or mental health issues, plus information families need to share when planning their estate.  [10:20] What tools can families use to prepare for estate planning?  [12:29] What happens when families withhold important information?   [17:45] Siblings serving as trustees for their siblings' trust.  [22:15] The exciting legal future of supporting high net worth families.    KEY TAKEAWAYS:     If you are a trained lawyer, your education did not include psychological training. However, it behooves lawyers to get psychological training so they may better serve their clients.  The most important thing to do before scheduling any meetings to plan your estate is to engage in some soul-searching. Think about your values, goals, and the messages  you want to leave behind.  When assigning a trustee, make sure they have the right qualifications to do what trustees must do, which include three basic things. They have to administer, invest, and distribute the assets of the trust  they received from the grantor or set loan.     BIO:  Patricia M.

News: Bedside AI warning system for sepsis reduces mortality by nearly 20% | New Atlas (01:23) Infections can trigger all kinds of reactions in the human body, and one of the most extreme is sepsis.Occurs as a result of an infection that triggers a severe immune response in the body. Begins with widespread inflammation and can end in blood clots, leaky blood vessels, organ failure or death. Diagnosing the condition is difficult in its early stages. This life-threatening complication causes more than 250,000 deaths in the US each year, but a new artificial intelligence system developed at Johns Hopkins University promises to make a real difference in this area, by catching key symptoms early on.Early diagnosis is critical because a patient experiencing sepsis can deteriorate quickly, with the condition killing around 30% of those who develop it. The Johns Hopkins team is looking to leverage advanced artificial intelligence to identify patients at risk.Does this by analyzing a patient's medical history and combining that with current symptoms, clinical notes and lab results. The AI tracks patients from the moment they are admitted to hospital until the moment they are discharged. Called the Targeted Real-Time Early Warning System By monitoring them throughout the time at the hospital, the system is designed to ensure no important, or potentially dangerous, medical details fall through the cracks. Developed and deployed in collaboration with Johns Hopkins spinoff Bayesian Health, the tool was put to use across five hospitals as part of a two-year trial, involving more than 700,000 patients. According to the researchers, the system proved very effective, leading to the detection of sepsis on average almost six hours earlier than traditional methods, with a sensitivity rate of 82%. It also fostered a high rate of adoption among healthcare providers of 89%. The result was significant reductions in morbidity, the length of hospital stay and, most importantly, a reduction in mortality of 18.2%. Neri Cohen, MD, PhD, who collaborated on the study explains the significance of this:“There aren't many things left in medicine that have a 30% mortality rate like sepsis … What makes it so vexing, is that it is relatively common and we still have made very little progress in recognizing it early enough to materially reduce the morbidity and mortality. To reduce mortality by nearly 20% is remarkable and translates to many lives saved."   Artificial Muscles Woven Into Smart Textiles Could Make Clothing Hyperfunctional | IEEE Spectrum (07:44) Engineers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, Australia, have developed a new class of fluid-driven smart textiles that can “shape-shift” into 3D structures.  According to Thanh Nho Do, senior lecturer at the UNSW's Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering, who led the study, development of active textiles is “either limited with slow response times due to the requirement of heating and cooling, or difficult to knit, braid, or weave in the case of fluid-driven textiles.” The researchers used a simple, low-cost fabrication technique, in which a long, thin silicone tube is directly inserted into a hollow micro coil to produce the artificial muscles, with a diameter ranging from a few hundred micrometers to several millimeters. Allowing them to mass-produce these soft artificial muscles at any scale and size The combination of hydraulic pressure, fast response times, light weight, small size, and high flexibility makes the UNSW's smart textiles versatile and programmable.  This versatility opens up potential applications in soft robotics, including shape-shifting structures, biomimicking soft robots, locomotion robots, and smart garments. Possibilities for use as medical/therapeutic wearables, as assistive devices for those needing help with movement, and as soft robots to aid the rescue and recovery of people trapped in confined spaces. These artificial muscles are still a proof of concept, Do is optimistic about commercialization in the near future, stating:“We have a Patent Cooperation Treaty application around these technologies … We are also working on clinical validation of our technology in collaborations with local clinicians, including smart compression garments, wearable assistive devices, and soft haptic interfaces.”   Brain stimulation improves motor skill learning at older age | MedicalXPress (11:53) Studies involving older individuals show that the older we get, the harder it is and the longer it takes to learn new motor skills, suggesting an age-related decrease in learning ability. A new study by researchers at EPFL has found that non-invasive electrical brain stimulation can help older adults learn new motor skills much faster. The study used a common way of evaluating how well a person learns new motor skills called the "finger-tapping task." key feature of learning involves typing a sequence of numbers as fast and as accurately as possible.  The task simulates activities that require high dexterity, while providing an objective measure of "improvement," defined as a person increasing their speed without losing accuracy (shift in the speed-accuracy tradeoff) One of the ways the brain achieves this shift for learning is by grouping individual motor actions into so called "motor chunks": spontaneously emerging brain structures that reduce a person's mental load, while optimizing the mechanical execution of the motor sequence. Ph.D. student Pablo Maceira-Elvira, who worked on the study talks about the differences of young and old trying to learn this task:“Older adults showed decreased fast online learning and absent offline learning … In other words, while young adults show sharp performance increases early in training and improve overnight, older adults improve at a more moderate pace and even worsen overnight." The researchers applied atDCS to the participants and found that it helped older adults to improve their accuracy sharply earlier on in training and in a pattern similar to that seen in young adults.atDCS: Anodal Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Maceira-Elvira relays the results:“Stimulation accelerated the shift in the speed-accuracy tradeoff and enabled an earlier emergence of efficient motor chunks, with 50% of older adults generating these structures during the first training session.” What does that suggest? Maceira-Elvira explains that it “suggests that atDCS can at least partially restore motor skill acquisition in individuals with diminished learning mechanisms, by facilitating the storage of task-relevant information, quickly reducing mental load and allowing the optimization of the mechanical execution of the sequence." This could open up atDCS as a non-invasive way to help improve mental function that's declining due to aging or disorders like stroke.   Small molecule prevents tumor cells from spreading | Phys.org (17:35) Leiden chemists, together with colleagues at the University of York (UK) and Technion (Israel) have discovered a small, sugar-like molecule that maintains the integrity of tissue around a tumor during cancer.prevents tumor cells from spreading from the primary cancer site What makes cancer so lethal?It's ability to metastasize Metastasis, the spread of cancer cells to distant sites in the body. It depends on the ability of cancer cells to detach from the primary tumor site, and invade through blood vessel walls and tissue barriers to reach secondary sites of growth. Enzymes enable cancer cells to pass through the gaps created through the digestion of proteins and sugars in the space around cells Metastatic cancer cells produce large amounts of heparanase enzyme, which helps them to spread around the body. Inhibiting the heparanase is a major target for anti-cancer therapy. Researchers developed and tested a new sugar-like molecule that reacts with the enzyme heparanase. Once attached, the heparanase enzyme is unable to bind or cut heparin sulfate sugar chains around cells.  The tissue around the cells remains firm and inaccessible to dislodged cells. They already studied the new molecule in mouse models of lung cancer, breast cancer and blood cancer. The results are promising and the institutes involved have already applied for a patent on the molecule. Leiden chemist Hermen Overkleeft believes that this molecule deserves a chance to find out its effect in the human body:“Now we have to find out whether the compound is stable, safe for the human body, ends up in the right place in sufficient quantities, and so on. That takes a couple of years, it may come to nothing and someone has to be willing to take that financial risk…. Our molecule is one of the few agents that can inhibit heparanase tightly and specifically. Small, well-defined molecules like this one may be easier to develop into a clinical drug than the large, heterogeneous polysaccharides that have been tried up to now."   DeepMind found the structure of nearly every protein known to science | The Verge (22:22) Deepmind,  a subsidiary of Google parent Alphabet, announced this past Thursday (July 28th) they will be releasing a free expanded database with its predictions of the structure of nearly every protein known to science.over 200 million structures We've discussed DeepMind's AlphaFold AI system in past episodes, but in short, this system produces highly accurate predictions of the structures of proteins.This predicted information can help scientists understand how they work, which can help treat diseases and develop medications. Demis Hassabis, CEO of DeepMind, said during a press briefing:“You can think of it as covering the entire protein universe … We're at the beginning of a new era now in digital biology.” Protein structures from AlphaFold are already widely used by research teams around the world. Cited in research on things like a malaria vaccine candidate and honey bee health.  Having easy access to predicted protein structures gives scientists a boost in research efforts across the scientific landscape.Those trying to understand how complex processes work in the body or which molecules can be used to target things like pollution. We'll end it off with a statement from Eric Topol, founder and director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute:“With this new addition of structures illuminating nearly the entire protein universe, we can expect more biological mysteries to be solved each day.”

Nancy McWilliams, PhD, is a pioneer in the field of psychoanalytic/psychodynamics. Her genuine curiosity for trying to understand and help people has led to a rich, 50-year career. In this conversation, Nancy shares learnings from her research in the field of complex trauma and profound lessons from clients who have opened up their worlds to her.  Reflecting on the changing landscape of psychotherapeutic approaches, and her objections to the “so-called evidence-based treatments”, she highlights the humanity in the psychotherapeutic relationship: meeting the clients where they are. “You have to tolerate uncertainty and not knowing – a kind of moral equality with the patient, where we're figuring it out together. I have to learn from you; I'm not here to apply something to you.” About Nancy McWilliams: Nancy McWilliams, PhD, is a renowned psychoanalytic psychotherapist, professor, and author. Nancy teaches psychoanalytic theory and therapy at the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology at Rutgers--The State University of New Jersey. She is also a senior analyst with the Institute for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy of New Jersey and the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis. Nacy's influential book, Psychoanalytic Diagnosis, is a response to the significant change of direction of the DSM IV and has become a standard text in many training programs for psychotherapists in the United States and abroad.  Learn More: Nancy McWilliams, PhD, ABPP  Psychoanalytic Diagnosis Text To read the full show notes and discover more resources visit https://www.narmtraining.com/podcast *** NARM Training Institute https://www.NARMtraining.com View upcoming trainings: https://narmtraining.com/schedule Join the Inner Circle: https://narmtraining.com/online-learning/inner-circle *** The NARM Training Institute provides tools for transforming complex trauma through: in-person and online trainings for mental health care professionals; in-person and online workshops on complex trauma and how it interplays with areas like addiction, parenting, and cultural trauma; an online self-paced learning program, the NARM Inner Circle; and other trauma-informed learning resources.   We want to connect with you!
