I love neuroscience and this was an unexpected experience while I was on the Duke Photo Walk. I did not take this photo, but my black shirt was the perfect background.

I take all of the brain courses at Coursea.org. It was a surprise to find out that a class I am taking at the end of the month called “Medical Neuroscience” will be given by Dr. Leonard E. White who was our instructor for this event.

Texting, Data and Saving Lives

“The parents in the room know that texting is actually the best way to communicate with your kids. It might be the only way to communicate with your kids.”

When Nancy Lublin started texting teenagers to help with her social advocacy organization, what she found was shocking — they started texting back about their own problems, from bullying to depression to abuse. So she’s setting up a text-only crisis line, and the results might be even more important than she expected.

Nancy Lublin is CEO and Chief Old Person at DoSomething.org, where she harnesses the extraordinary energy of teens and focuses it on issues they care passionately about.
