SPEAKERS

The Brain Imaging Revolution: What’s coming down the Pike?
pike

Bruce Pike, PhD, University of Calgary

Innovations during the past 30 years have created unprecedented windows onto the living human brain and have revolutionized medical care and neuroscience research.  In this presentation I will touch upon many of the great brain imaging milestones, discuss their impact on basic and clinical neuroscience, and muse about the future.


Donald J. Trump Goes to Leadership School

James StauchJames Stauch, Director of the Institute for Community Prosperity at MRU

The set-up: As the siren Stormy draws the great leader of the American empire to crash upon the rocks and relinquish his power, he stands on the precipice, clinging to the mast, confessing to the wind that he might have a problem.  Appealing to the heavens for one last chance to redeem himself, his call is answered:  He is instructed by a chorus of winged former world leaders – Gandhi, Mandela, MLK – caregiver social reformers – Nightengale, Fry, Sanger, Barton – and, among many others, an obscure Saskatchewan preacher named Tommy Douglas – that he must check himself in to “leadership rehab”.  We’ll be flies on the wall, as we witness Trump’s wrenching but powerful journey of self- and world-discovery.
