Big data has been a primary focus of change in the U.S. healthcare system. Small data, however, will drive even more change for individual patients and disrupt both the Internet of Things and physician's day to day clinical practice. Why? Right now, we're moving toward the collection of...
Whew! Even though I expected Hillary Clinton to win the first presidential debate with Donald Trump, watching it was a nerve-wracking experience. Here are my first thoughts about the debate.
This was undoubtedly the first presidential debate in history to include a mention of Rosie O'Donnell. Even grading on a curve - something the press tends to do with Donald Trump - the Republican fared poorly. Hillary Clinton took him down on one character issue after another, from his tax...
More than thirty years later, many are unaware of Michael's story--even as the circumstances surrounding his death are all too familiar. Yet, we must remember Michael--like so many others whose names have gone into historical obscurity.
Hacking TV #0059 Dreams and disappointments aplenty on this week's Hacking TV. Starting with cruel reality, Yahoo had to confess that it was the victim of the biggest identity hack in history two years ago, but it only found out right when it was trying to sell itself to Verizon. Meanwhile the egos of the video publishers on Facebook took a hit last week, when they found out the company overstated the time people spent watching their video... by 200 percent. On the optimistic side, AT&T says its yet to be introduced streaming service will be bigger than DirecTV within five years. And Snapchat continues to dream big, now introducing its own line of sunglasses, with a wireless video camera built in. I'm Saul Hansell and I'm Steve Rosenbaum. And this is...

Although this letter is primarily for Berniecrats, of which I am one, I have a bit of advice for those of you who have supported Hilary from the beginning. Please do not - I repeat DO NOT -- tell Bernie supporters how to vote in November.
We're coming down the home stretch to the Presidential election and Hillary Clinton, one of the most qualified people to be President ever, may not win because of how she comes across. What a shame that would be. So I turned to my colleague, Deborah Shames, co-founder of Eloqui and a presentation specialist especially with regard to female executive presence to see what she had to say on this matter.
By Mary-Margaret Mara At the beginning of every school year, I find myself pondering what my students will be like, what their needs will be, and whether I will be equipped to meet those needs. Even with twenty five years of teaching experience,...
Ghosts Of Tom Joad,
Occupy Wall Street,
Trump is very aware of the unfocused anger in the Midwest, and is working hard to use that to get votes. If he takes the swing states of Ohio and Pennsylvania, it will be because of that insight.
Yes we can, and yes we should. With the US Presidential election barreling towards us, what to do? Get out the vote? Voter registration? Encourage early voting? Moan, groan, and bite our nails?
As last night's presidential debate made clear, there's never been a more unpredictable election. Or one where the stakes are so high. Voters won't only be selecting candidates for president and the U.S. Senate in November. They will also be deciding who sits on the U.S. Supreme Court for the...
I keep thinking about how it felt to have a stranger touch me in the middle of Logan airport in places I would only let my partner touch me. I keep thinking about what would happen if they tried to do it to my child.

United Nations General Assembly,
Someone messed up on the job at Egyptian state-run TV and big heads began to roll. The catastrophe: An employee aired an interview of President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi with PBS' Margaret Warner dated September 28, 2015 when she should have broadcast a newer one with host Charlie Rose...
