Dr Future, October 3rd, 2011 - A Dr. Future Movie Review - Limitless

Download File

One of our “regular irregulars” on the Dr. Future Show, quantum physicist Nick Herbert, and his best friend, retired San Jose cop and current weight lifting coach, Reno DeCaro, love to watch movies together a couple of times a week in Reno’s state-of-the-art home theater.

Not short of opinions and very discerning on what they watch, they recently viewed the SciFi thriller, “Limitless,” about a down on his luck writer who tries NZT, a revolutionary new pharmaceutical that allows him to tap his full potential. Starring Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro, this is the first Hollywood film that explores the topic of smart drugs, one of our show’s favorite topics. I think you’ll enjoy Nick and Reno’s fast-paced, if somewhat scathing review of the film, and Nick’s desire for “quantum pharmaceuticals.”

Dr Future, September 29th, 2011 - The Futures go mobile, visiting media wizard Mark Hager after a serious auto accident and physicist Nick Herbert on the faster than light "CERN Neutrino Speculator."

A strange thing happened after the live Dr. Future Show at KSCO this week- the station auto-logger did not record the show! Sadly, we have no record of all the cool things we talked about this week. Our links page does give you a good idea of the topics discussed, just not our opinions and perspectives or the questions and comments from our beloved listeners.

So, after being bummed about this for a day, Sun (Mrs. Future) and I visited the most interesting call-in to the non-recorded show, Mark Hager. A tech wizard of the highest caliber, Mark has been responsible for setting up and operating the media at some of the biggest venues and shows in the Bay Area- i.e. the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, the Mountain Winery in Saratoga, the TED conferences in Monterey, the HP Pavilion in San Jose.

A couple of weeks ago he was in a head-on collision on Highway 9 North of Boulder Creek, and was airlifted to Stanford Hospital for a 9-hour surgical operation. Among other things he had to have the femur replaced in one leg with a titanium rod, had his knee caps repaired as well as some major lacerations.

Wheelchair bound, we made him breakfast, and he shared with us some good info on how he has turned this ‘disaster’ into some invaluable insights about our medical system and ways to make it better, should you ever find yourself in such a situation. He also takes us on a little journey into our species’ relationship with canines, as his golden lab, Sparky, is playing a key role in his recovery.

Next up is Nick Herbert, a quantum physicist who shares with Dr. Future his understanding of this latest bewildering faster than light neutrino experiment at CERN in Switzerland. He points out that measurement and timing errors only account for about 20% of the time difference between the speed of light and the speed of neutrinos. (The CERN neutrinos are faster by 20 meters over a distance of 750 km). My favorite part of this conversation was when we were speculating on how ftl neutrinos may be useful to the stock market, and could be a great way to fund big physics experiments! Gotta love the muse! Enjoy..

Can the Post Office pull itself out of it’s current dive into the dust bin of history? Will Apple’s new 3D TV plans forever change the shape of television? WIll our wallets go away, with the advent of Google Wallet? We delve deeply into these issues, stem cell research updates, and the future of manned space flight in the first half of this episode of Dr. Future.

For the second hour, we are joined by Amara Angelica, a visionary futurist who is co-founder and Editor of KurzweilAI.net and its daily Accelerating Intelligence newsletter. She was editor and researcher for two of Ray Kurzweil’s books, The Singularity Is Nearand Fantastic Voyage, and is Academic Model/Curriculum Lead for Singularity University. Amara’s eclectic background includes positions as operations analyst and human factors engineer for Grumman Aerospace for electronic intelligence and electronic countermeasures systems, aerospace reliability engineer for General Dynamics, USAF electronics instructor, electronics field engineer at Philco Corp., senior systems analyst at Grumman Data Systems, science/technology writer/editor, video script writer for Reeves Communications, high-tech marcom consultant, radio producer/engineer at WBAI-FM, and patent writer/inventor/IP manager in biomedical, biophysics, and nanoelectronics technologies for Technology Innovations Inc., and is a member of the Space Development Steering Committee, American Institute of Astronautics and Aeronautics, and on the board of directors of the National Space Society. Amara holds a BS in psychology/mathematics from the U. of Nebraska, and is an electronic musician, radio amateur operator (KF6TEJ), photographer, and videographer.
