Shepard Smith: ‘Do Not Listen To The Hysterical Voices’ In The Media About Ebola

"Someday there may be a real panic," said Shepard Smith. "Someday, something may start spreading that they can’t control. And then, do you know what we’re gonna have to do? We’re gonna have to relax and listen to leaders. We’re not gonna panic when we’re supposed to and we’re certainly not gonna panic now. We have to stop it." Watch his full speech on Ebola here.

Can our memories of childhood help us understand our adult identities, fit together like pieces of a puzzle? Or do our adult minds change the shape of these memories to suit their own needs?

Read Anne Fausto-Sterling’s illuminating reflection on recent findings on the tricky workings of memory and what they might mean for mental health care, courtroom proceedings, and the task of understanding our own identities.

Over the next twenty years the earth is predicted to add another two billion people. Having nearly exhausted nature’s ability to feed the planet, we now need to discover a new food system. The global climate will continue to change. To save our coastlines, and maintain acceptable living conditions for more than a billion people, we need to discover new science, engineering, design, and architectural methods, and pioneer economic models that sustain their implementation and maintenance. Microbiological threats will increase as our traditional techniques of anti-microbial defense lead to greater and greater resistances, and to thwart these we must discover new approaches to medical treatment, which we can afford, and implement in ways that incite compliance and good health. The many rich and varied human cultures of the earth will continue to mix, more rapidly than they ever have, through mass population movements and unprecedented information exchange, and to preserve social harmony we need to discover new cultural referents, practices, and environments of cultural exchange. In such conditions the futures of law, medicine, philosophy, engineering, and agriculture – with just about every other field – are to be rediscovered. Americans need to learn how to discover.
