547: Second Amendment Under Fire and the Lies Government Tells Us  

Whether we're talking about second amendment rights or the right to keep what we earn, the natural rights provided by "our creator" as well as those protected by the Constitution are under constant assault. Today we're going to look at several examples of the ways government lies to us, and why we must be ever vigilant when given, we hear these silver tongued foxes promise us the moon in exchange for our liberty. I have come to believe the greatest threat to our liberty is not a foreign government or invading army. It's not even a terrorist attack. The greatest threat to our liberty comes from our own government, and it's constant intrusion into every aspect of our lives.

Episode 233: Alexis C. Madrigal  

Alexis C. Madrigal is an editor-at-large for Fusion, where he’s producing the upcoming podcast, Containers.

“Sometimes you think like, 'Man the media business is the worst. This is so hard.' When you spend time with all these other business people, you probably are going to say, ‘Capitalism is the worst. This is hard.’ Competition that’s linked to global things is so hard because global companies are locked in this incredible efficiency battle that just drives all of the slack out of the system. Like media, there’s no slack left, and I don’t know where things go after that.”

7 Minute Ab Workout (6 PACK PROMISE!)  

The biggest mistake people make when they do their ab workout is they spend too much time doing it. Spending any more than 10 minutes training your abs is a colossal error since it is extremely unnecessary in order to see results.

a16z Podcast: When will genomics live up to the hype?  

It's been nearly 15 years since the Human Genome Project was completed. But "are we there yet" in the golden age of genomics? What did we think we'd have by now, what do we actually have, and what do we really still need to make genomics live up to its promise? Well, one thing we now understand is that our DNA isn't static; in fact, it changes at an absolutely crazy rate. We also need to add more context -- about mutations, about somatic tissue, about phenotypes, about each person's unique history -- to make genetic information more complete and accurate. So what does that mean for predictive vs. diagnostic (which are two very different things) genomics? What are the challenges and opportunities for commercialization? The guests in this episode of the a16z Podcast -- Carlos Araya of Jungla,Jeff Kaditz of Q, and Gabe Otte of Freenome -- discuss all this and more with a16z bio fund partner Malinka Walaliyadde in a conversation that took place at our inaugural a16z Summit event.

NFU Conference 2017  

Anna Hill is at the NFU Conference in Birmingham, where farmers were hoping for more details of a post-agricultural agricultural policy from the keynote speaker, the Environment Secretary Andrea Leadsom.

Produced by Sally Challoner.

248- Atom in the Garden of Eden  

As the world entered the Atomic Age, humankind faced a new fear that permeated just about every aspect of daily life: the threat of nuclear war. And while the violent applications of atomic research had already been proven, governments and scientists hoped this powerful technology held promise for peaceful applications as well. As part of the “Atoms For Peace” efforts, experts would be mobilized to apply atomic science to the fields of energy, medicine, and agriculture. One of the products of these initiatives were the atomic gardens of the 1950s and 60s—experiments that used radioactive material to genetically alter plants into what they hoped would be better, stronger breeds. And the legacies of these largely forgotten experiments are still around today in the form of fruits, vegetables, and grains that can be found in grocery stores and markets the world over. Atom in the Garden of Eden

New Rules, Fresh Concern On Immigration  

The president's promise to get tough on immigration has taken an important step forward with the drafting and approval of new guidelines to give federal authorities more power to detain and deport undocumented immigrants. Late last week, Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly signed a pair of memos outlining plans for the agency to hire thousands of additional enforcement agents, expand the pool of immigrants who are prioritized for removal, speed up deportation hearings and enlist local law enforcement to help make arrests. The move has raised many questions and concerns about the immediate fate of millions of people who are in the country but are undocumented. Joining 1A for this conversation are Fernando Pizarro, Washington correspondent for Univision, Cecilia Muñoz, a top advisor to President Obama on immigration, Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, Cesar Vargas, co-director of the Dream Action Coalition and Shawn Moran, a border patrol agent in San Diego.
