#Cyberpecefare #Impossible Dream Excerpt #Lyrics Joe Darion

"To Dream the Impossible Dream

To fight the unbeatable foe

To right the unrightable wrong

To bear with unbearable sorrow

To run where the brave dare not go

To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest

No matter how hopeless 

No matter how far ................."

(Don Quixote: one my favorite stories and plays.  Become a modern day cyberspace/social media Knight-Errant.  Instead of a lance…

#Cyberpeacefare #It Can Be Done

"The man who misses all the fun

Is he who says, "It can't be done"

In solemn pride he stands aloof

And greets each venture with reproof

Had he the power he'd efface

The history of the human race:

We'd have no radio or motor…

Gene Editing Governance & Dr. He Jiankui, with Jeffrey Kahn

Jeffrey Kahn, director of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute for Bioethics, discusses the many governance issues connected to gene editing. Plus, he gives a first-hand account of an historic conference in Hong Kong last year in which Dr. He Jiankui shared his research on the birth of the world's first germline genetically engineered babies. What's the future of the governance of this emerging technology?

Trump is the Symptom, Not the Problem

Astute observers of U.S. foreign policy have been making the case, as we move into the 2020 elections, not to see the interruptions in the flow of U.S. foreign policy solely as a result of the personality and foibles of the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. Ian Bremmer and Colin Dueck expand on this thought.

Gene Editing: Overview, Ethics, & the Near Future, with Robert Klitzman

In the first in a series of podcasts on gene editing, Columbia's Dr. Robert Klitzman provides an overview of the technology, ethical and governance issues, and where it could all go in the near future. Plus he explains why the birth of genetically engineered twins in China last year was a "seismic" event. How could gene editing lead to more inequality? What could be some of unintended consequences?
