  • In this new series from T-Mobile for Business and iHeartRadio, Oz and Karah look closely at how 5G innovations will revolutionize the way we work, socialize and interact with the world. They'll explore how the 5G revolution has the potential to change everything from airline travel to manufacturing to sports to disaster relief, and what the next generation of wireless really means for the businesses that serve us.

  • Margaret Thatcher famously declared that there is no such thing as society. Her successor David Cameron has asserted that the concept of ‘The Big Society’ is a central plank of his administration’s agenda.

    Universities have found it easy to take a distanced view of the rhetoric of government, but the current Conservative government has also insisted that this concept of ‘The Big Society’ must determine a significant proportion of research funding. ‘Society’ is one of the most contested terms in modern thinking – though completely undefined in government policy! What then should we make of the command to think of ‘The Big Society’?

    Society can mean the widest delineaments of public community life or it can imply the most delimited arena of upper-class posing. Can we talk of society without talking of culture? Religion? Gender? Power? Class? Nationhood? Is society only a term of modern thinking? To answer these interrelated and vexing questions, we have invited a leading group of anthropologists, cultural historians, social scientists and philosophers to explore ‘understanding society’.

    The second series of CRASSH lectures is led by Lord Giddens, not only one of the world’s most distinguished sociologists but also a key intellectual figure in the development of the Labour government’s social policy the ‘Third Way’. Our second speaker is Juliet Mitchell whose work on psychoanalysis and feminism defines the field. If the personal is political, what place is there for social psychology in understanding society? Richard Sennett – recently described as the sage of the tempers of our times – is our third speaker. His combination of broad political and social insight is crucial for a question as general as understanding society. Bruno Latour – world famous contributor to network theory – has provided one of the most polemical voices in the challenge to those who wish to see society or its institutions as natural or inevitable in form. Marilyn Strathern, one of the most celebrated anthropological thinkers of her generation may agree with Margaret Thatcher that there is no such thing as society – but not for the same reasons. How can society be understood without the insights of anthropology?

    The lecture series will be followed by two further events: first, at Kings Place in London, Lord Giddens, Juliet Mitchell and Richard Sennett will take part in a further panel discussion chaired by Simon Franklin looking back at the series and drawing together some conclusions. Finally, in Lent 2013 Judith Butler will give a final lecture in Cambridge on the theme from her unique perspective of feminism, philosophy and language.

  • Quase desde os tempos em que eramos internos de MGF que falamos que um dia criaríamos um podcast sobre literatura médica. Disso já lá vão uns quantos e bons anos. Entretanto apareceram outros projectos familiares, académicos e profissionais e nunca até agora ambos tivemos tão pouca disponibilidade para finalmente iniciar o podcast. Portanto segundo a lógica da vida dos dois faz todo o sentido começar agora este projecto.


    Acreditamos numa Medicina baseada num sólido conhecimento da leges artis médica. Isso inclui três pilares: os valores e preferências dos doentes, a experiência clínica e a informação proveniente da investigação médica.

    Mas a produção de informação médica está hoje em dia a um ritmo impossível de acompanhar e isso é um problema que leva a prática médica desactualizada e a cuidados de saúde inadequados.

    Torna-se imperativo que os actores que participam nas consultas usem informação válida, pertinente e actualizada. Por um lado os médicos devemos seleccionar bem as nossas fontes, escolher bem o que ler, ter capacidades de apreciação e crítica da literatura médica e finalmente capacidade de integração dessa nova informação na prática clínica. Por outro lado a população deve ser adequadamente informada e entrar nos processos de decisão num ambiente de colaboração deliberativa com os clínicos.

    Nada disto deve ser feito sozinho! Acreditamos que aprender em conjunto não só é mais eficaz mas sobretudo é muito mais divertido!

    É então intenção deste podcast começar uma discussão que esperamos que siga entre todos nós. Desafiamos os ouvintes e leitores a participarem! Exponham comentários, dúvidas, opiniões! Prometemos tentar responder e participar na discussão.

    Abraços e até já!
