From TED TALKS TUESDAY

http://www.ted.com
Modern medicine is in danger of losing a powerful, old-fashioned tool:
human touch. Physician and writer Abraham Verghese describes our strange
new world where patients are merely data points, and calls for a return
to the traditional one-on-one physical exam.

TEDTalks is a daily
video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED
Conference, where the world’s leading thinkers and doers give the talk
of their lives in 18 minutes. Featured speakers have included Al Gore on
climate change, Philippe Starck on design, Jill Bolte Taylor on
observing her own stroke, Nicholas Negroponte on One Laptop per Child,
Jane Goodall on chimpanzees, Bill Gates on malaria and mosquitoes,
Pattie Maes on the “Sixth Sense” wearable tech, and “Lost” producer JJ
Abrams on the allure of mystery. TED stands for Technology,
Entertainment,Design,and TEDTalks cover these topics as well as
science, business, development and the arts. Closed captions and
translated subtitles in a variety of languages are now available on
TED.com, at http://www.ted.com/translate.
