Ladar Levison built an encrypted email service called Lavabit that counted a prominent figure among its users: Edward Snowden. After spending 10 years building Lavabit, he has to destroy it all in one night. When the FBI demanded Levison decrypt Snowden’s communications, he had two options, either hand over the encryption key or destroy his servers. He chose the latter. Now, he’s back and building an even more secure version of Lavabit that could make mass email surveillance obsolete.

The Future of Cancer Research | Freethink
 
05:54
Intel employee Bryce Olson was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. When the standard of care didn’t work, Bryce turned to genomic sequencing which allowed his doctors to identify specific genetic drivers of his disease and identify specific treatments and clinical trials that were a fit for his specific cancer. This precision medicine approach helped send his cancer into remission for several years. Now that his cancer has returned, Bryce is working with the Broad Institute and other leaders in the field of advanced cancer research to use artificial intelligence powered by Intel technology to discover new, innovative solutions that can help him and millions of others like him around the world.

Inside the Cajun Navy: How Volunteers are Training to Rescue Hurricane Victims | Freethink
 
04:39
After Hurricane Katrina, volunteers with boats rescued thousands of flood victims. Those volunteers have evolved into the “Cajun Navy,” a cluster of groups which have helped rescue many more people stranded in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and other floods and major storms. We followed one of these groups, Cajun Navy Relief, as they prepared for their first-ever Search and Rescue games this spring. The games were just the latest effort by the group to add new skills and capabilities to the all-volunteer group. Can civilian-led rescue be part of future disaster recovery efforts?

This Neuroscientist Uses fMRI to Communicate With People in a Vegetative State | Freethink
 
04:56
Whether some patients in vegetative states were actually "there" has always been a mystery. Most people thought it would never be possible to know. Neuroscientist Adrian Owen, author of "Into The Gray Zone" and a professor at Western University in Canada decided to try to communicate with them with the help of fMRI technology to monitor brain activity. He found, amazingly, that around 20% of people in vegetative states are actually aware of their surroundings - and thanks to his technique, able to communicate for the first time.

Growing Crops in the Desert with Seawater | Freethink
 
03:00
Water is in short supply in much of the world - but what if we use seawater? It’s been a dream for many years, but now technology is making it possible. This new seawater greenhouse uses a clever cardboard design to distill fresh water from salt water cheaply and efficiently. It’s helping grow crops in Somaliland, and could help stop the water crisis in Africa and other parts of the world that are susceptible to drought. The founder of Seawater Greenhouse, Charlie Paton, explains how unlike traditional greenhouses - which are hothouses - this one is a “cool house” that is ideal for growing temperate crops in deserts or other hot, arid regions. What do you think? Will this succeed at turning desert into farmland? What other projects have caught your eye? Let us know in the comments and subscribe for new videos every week.

After he was diagnosed with life-threatening prostate cancer, Intel’s Bryce Olson sequenced his genome which offered clues to new treatments for his disease. While the current standard of care for cancer patients includes surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, genetic sequencing opens the door for new possibilities beyond these traditional approaches. Bryce explains his personal mission to encourage others to get their genome sequenced, how to do it, and why cancer patients should tell their doctors “sequence me!” The National Institute of Health’s National Cancer Institute has a lot of helpful resources for people wanting to learn more about the topics discussed in the video.

A self-professed data nerd, Thomas Hargrove believes everything around us is following a mathematical formula...including murder. Hargrove wanted to find a way to use data to solve cold cases and identify potential serial killers that have gone unnoticed. Armed with public homicide records, he created an algorithm that can spot similar patterns across different cases. Each cluster is given an unique identifier -- what he calls a “Dewey Decimal System of death.” Through the Murder Accountability Project, Hargrove releases the data to the public and partners with local law enforcement to consult on ongoing investigations.

Using Viruses to Fight Antibiotic-Resistant Infections | Freethink
 
11:55
Ben is a Yale researcher collecting bacteriophages (bacteria-destroying viruses) in hopes of treating superbugs. Paige is a cystic fibrosis patient in Texas with an antibiotic-resistant pseudomonas infection which has further reduced her already limited lung capacity, and Ben’s therapy is her last resort. While superbugs have evolved resistance to our most powerful antibiotics, the phages Ben has found in water samples around the world could be capable of knocking them out. In this documentary, we follow Ben as he travels from his laboratory in New Haven to Lubbock, Texas to deliver the treatment - and meet Paige as she shows us what life is like before and after this experimental phage therapy.

Can Growing Organs in Pigs Solve the Organ Shortage? | Freethink On the Fringe
 
06:53
America is in the middle of an organ crisis. 20 people die every day in the U.S. waiting for a transplant and over 100,000 people are on waiting lists. However, some researchers think they have a solution -- growing human organs inside animals. One of companies pioneering this approach is Recombinetics which raises genetically-modified pigs to grow human cells, tissues, and organs. Human stem cells are inserted into the animals to create “chimeras”. Could this strange idea be the key to helping people everywhere getting the life-saving organs they need?

Making Tumors Glow to Improve Cancer Surgery | Freethink
 
02:56
This surgeon, Dr. Sunil Singhal, is making tumors glow to help doctors ensure they have removed all of the cancer cells at the surgery site. Completely removing cancer tumors can be difficult, and if a small amount remains, the cancer can recur. Sunil, the director of the Thoracic Surgery Research Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania, came up with the idea of using glowing tumors to advance cancer surgery after an instance where it recurred in a young patient his team was confident they had cured. By using fluorescent dyes and delivery mechanisms for small drugs, they are able to imbue the cancer cells with fluorescent dye and then use ultraviolet light to make them glow. After 10 years in development, it is now in use - and is a notable improvement to cancer surgery, as it turns out around 10% of the surgeries would otherwise leave cancer cells behind.

The Student Laboratory Reinventing Food To Stop Waste | Freethink
 
03:11
40% of food goes to waste - and much of that comes from companies. The Drexel food lab at Drexel University is helping companies “upcycle” unsold products into new ones and find ways to turn scraps or byproducts into great foods people want to buy. Students work with customers and products to create new ideas and products that the companies can produce with food that would otherwise go to waste. It helps give students work experience, prevents food waste, and helps the companies as well. In this video, the director of Drexel’s Food Lab walks us through the process, and a manager from a customer, Bimbo Bakeries USA, talks about how they are working with Drexel students to reduce their environmental impact.
