Most of you have heard of TED or watched the talks online, but do you know about BIL, the quirky, populist, unconference taking place nearby? Open to the public and fully participant powered, BIL features a wild mix of technologists, scientists, artists, hackers, and those with a passion for community awareness. Join us March 2-3 in Long Beach, California.
Christine Peterson will speak on "A Whirlwind Tour of Health & Longevity Strategies". A highly subjective quick summary of the latest thinking on cutting-edge areas of health, longevity, and brain fitness including telomeres, inflammation, intermittent fasting and protein/carb alternation, high-intensity interval training, shedding excess iron, sleep, DNA testing, Paleo & the diet wars, the microbiome (gut bacteria), testing, bioidentical hormones, stress & mood, supplements, cryonics, and how to find the best doctors.
Also a second talk on a fun but non-Foresight topic: "Find Love & a Life Partner--Using Science & Technology". New scientific understanding of the chemistry of love indicates that today's mating practices may be actively interfering with the goal of mutually falling in love and establishing stable long-term relationships. Christine will review what is not working, what appears to work better, and give detailed info on how to proceed if your goal is deep, lasting love and a very long-term relationship. Includes the role of evolution in our mating preferences and behaviors, accepting our animal nature in the mating process, efficiently using online dating services to speed your search, two useful dating books, getting over first-date jitters, selecting the best candidates, stimulating the "falling in love" hormonal release in both parties, and keeping the connection intact for decades. (An earlier version of this talk was given at Ephemerisle 2012.)
