What to Expect from Historic Second Meeting Between US and North Korea Guest: Richard McBride, PhD, Associate Professor of Asian and Near Eastern Languages, Brigham Young University President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will meet this week in Vietnam. It’s only the second time a sitting US president has met face to face with the North Korean leader. The first time was when Trump and Kim met last summer. President Trump boasted of the progress he’s made on North Korea during his State of the Union Address Regulating Seizures through a Ketogenic Diet Guest: Eric Kossoff, MD, Director of the Child Neurology Residency Program and Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine You’ve probably heard of the Ketogenic Diet–it’s the latest health and beauty fad. On this meal plan, 90% of your calories come from fats. While that fat content makes it highly controversial as a weight loss strategy, the keto diet has made waves in the epilepsy community as a way to stop seizures in children. The Doodle Revolution Guest: Sunni Brown, Author, “The Doodle Revolution” If your kid’s notebook is full of doodles, you may be worried they’re not paying any attention in school. I’m a chronic doodler, and when I do it in business meetings, I always worry that my boss is going to think I don’t care about work. So, is doodling bad? Sunni Brown doesn’t think so. She’s written a whole book about how we need to change the way we think about the practice called “The Doodle Revolution.” Drone Defense Ethics Guest: Ryan Jenkins, PhD, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at California Polytechnic State University, Director of Ethics and Policy, White Fox Defense Technologies It’s the wild west out there when it comes to drones. They’re flying around invading privacy, making fire-fighting more difficult, and even smuggling contraband into prisons. While the government is still figuring out the best way to regulate drones, new companies are cropping up with technology to defend against the aircrafts. What Makes a Place Your Home? Guest: Brad Barber, Professor of Film and Documentary Making, BYU The average American moves more than 11 times in their lifetime. So, what do you call home? Is it the first place you lived, where you lived the longest, or where you live now? Or does it have more to do with the people and culture of a place? Award-winning documentary director and BYU film professor Brad Barber set out to answer that question through a documentary called “States of America.” Machines with an Imagination Guest: Alex Schlegel, PhD, Neuroscience Researcher, Vicarious Picture a dragon with a rabbit head. I’m sure you’ve never seen a dragon rabbit, but you can imagine it. That ability to conjure up images makes us human and separates us from machines –for now. As scientists figure out just how our brains do that, artificial imagination in machines is on its way.
