Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., is an internationally acclaimed author, award-winning educator, and child psychiatrist. He is currently a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine. His books include "The Yes Brain," "Mindsight," "The Developing Mind, "The Mindful Therapist," "Parenting From the Inside Out," and "The Whole-Brain Child." In this session, we will explore three key aspects of our children’s future that can help create the structure for effective parenting in our contemporary times. The field of attachment research reveals that parental presence—how a parent or other caregiver is open to and focused on the inner life of the child—is the best predictor of how emotionally and socially resilient a child will be as they develop into young adults. This parent-child relationship helps foster a secure attachment by providing the four S’s of being seen, soothed, and safe to cultivate security.

Talks at Google welcomed Julia Nash and Mark Skillicorn to Google Chicago to discuss their documentary "INDUSTRIΛL ΛCCIDENT: The Story of Wax Trax! Records." Moderated by Josh Pyle. From humble beginnings in Denver, Colorado, Jim Nash and Dannie Flesher built one of the most influential American independent record labels. In 1978 they opened Wax Trax! Records in Chicago, Illinois, which would evolve into a record store and music label like no other—Wax Trax! became the nexus of the new wave, punk rock and industrial music scenes, and America’s preeminent industrial label of the 1980s and ’90s. About INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT: The Story of Wax Trax! Records: INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT: The Story of Wax Trax! Records is the story behind the independent record store and label. Tracing the bizarre journey of two music-obsessed men from the bible belt to Chicago, this film travels through the underground culture of music and art as these two men expose emerging music and artists to fans from around the world for the first time. From the beginning, Jim & Dannie’s ability to combine obscure and fringe music with underground culture created a language that set Wax Trax! apart from traditional US record stores. Throughout the 80’s, Wax Trax! became the meeting place for ideas and a primary home for many kids that lived outside mainstream culture. The documentary follows the thorny arc of the rise and fall of an important musical movement as well as explaining how the details and artifacts of this entire Wax Trax! Records history was nearly lost forever.

Despite spending more on healthcare than any other nation in the world, Americans today live shorter, less healthy lives than citizens of other rich countries. How come? As Dr. Sandro Galea demonstrates in his new book, Well: What We Need to Talk About When We Talk About Health, the American healthcare system focuses far too much on insurance plans, pharmaceuticals, and doctors at the expense of addressing the real, underlying determinants of good health outcomes: location, power, money, and choice (among other variables). In this talk, Dr. Galea will explore the real reasons American health outcomes are falling across the nation, the myriad ways they affect our health, and why it’s essential that we start talking about them. About Sandro: Sandro Galea is Dean and Robert A. Knox Professor at the Boston University School of Public Health. (At the time of the appointment, he was the youngest dean of a school of Public Health in the United States.) A native of Malta, he previously served as a field physician for Doctors Without Borders, and held academic positions at Columbia University, University of Michigan, and the New York Academy of Medicine.

Tickets and info via https://tokillamockingbirdbroadway.com/ Read Gbenga's NYTimes OpEd here: https://goo.gle/2JTBkYB Moderated by Ben Fried, Google CIO. About the show: Published in 1960, Harper Lee’s debut novel To Kill a Mockingbird was an immediate and astonishing success. It won the Pulitzer Prize and quickly became a global phenomenon, with more than 50 million copies in print to date. Considered one of the great classics of modern American literature, the novel has never been out of print since its original publication 57 years ago. Inspired by Lee’s own childhood in Alabama, To Kill a Mockingbird features one of literature’s towering symbols of integrity and righteousness in the character of Atticus Finch, based on Lee’s own father. The character of Scout, based on Lee herself, has come to define youthful innocence—and its inevitable loss—for generation after generation of readers around the world. In a Library of Congress survey on books that have most affected people’s lives, To Kill a Mockingbird was second only to the Bible. In 1999, American librarians named it the “Best Novel of the Twentieth Century.” Now, for the first time ever, Harper Lee’s open-hearted dissection of justice and tolerance in the American South is brought vividly to life on the Broadway stage.
