What the Flu Does to Your Body (16:39) Laura Haynes, Ph.D., is a professor of Immunology at the University of Connecticut Health. The flu season is coming to an end, a pretty nasty one.  But, what exactly is the flu and how does it affect our bodies?  Laura Haynes explains why the flu makes you feel horrible and how that is a good thing. The Game Theorist's Guide to Parenting (1:07:27) Kevin Zollman, Ph.D., is an associate professor of philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University and co-author (along with Paul Raeburn) of the book “The Game Theorist's Guide to Parenting”. Game Theory is the mathematical analysis of conflict resolution. It obviously has its place in decision making between international businessmen, heads of state, etc., but what about with your 5-year-old? Dr. Zollman explains the art of benevolent manipulation.
