Dr. Hazan has done 150 clinical trials in the last 15 years. She explained that we have in our gut up to 100 trillion microbes and that there are more than 150,000 species of them—some well-known, others not so well-known.
Dr. Hazan’s theory is that, just like Penicillin was discovered from the growth of mold, all gut bacteria, gut fungi, and viruses might have properties that have yet to be discovered.
She is currently analyzing the gut microbiome of people with chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic constipation, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, recurrent urinary tract infections, psoriasis, Lyme’s disease, Alzheimers’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, autism, colorectal cancer, obesity, and several other conditions. In doing so, Dr. Hazan is discovering that patients with certain diseases have a very different gut microbiome than people without any disease.
But first let’s take a look at what a microbiome looks like, from Dr. Hazan’s point of view:
Dr. Hazan, Our Start!
Born in Morocco, Dr. Sabine Hazan has always had a dedication to understanding life. She sought a career in medicine and was accepted to medical school based on outstanding research on obesity conducted as an undergraduate. She completed her residency at the University of Miami during the peak of the HIV epidemic, treating extremely ill patients at Jackson Memorial Hospital and in the local jail. Here she was awarded two prizes for her research. After residency Dr. Hazan became the first woman gastroenterology fellow at the University of Florida. Here she completed a year of research and presented her findings in poster format at the American College of Gastroenterology National Meeting. It was at that moment that she was approached by the esteemed Dr. Neil Stollman. He told her that the future of medicine lies in the microbiome. For her exceptional work with visceral hyperalgesia she was awarded the Dean’s Research Award. Dr Stollman is now an expert an

You knew it was coming: Jeep global president Christian Meunier says the company is all in for electric and hybrid versions of the classic SUVs, starting with the China-market Jeep Commander.
As seen at the CES technology show earlier in January, Jeep’s U.S. electrification will start with hybrid versions of the Renegade, Compass, and Wrangler under the 4xe name.
By 2022, every Jeep in the lineup will have a hybrid or electric variant, he said.
In the several months since Christian Meunier took over the reins of Jeep worldwide, the new global president of the Jeep brand has made it clear he’s focusing less on interior features and luxuries, more on technology. Predictably, as goes the entire industry, so goes the off-roading icon. Christian recently told Car and Driver that his plans for the Jeep brand in the 2020s include an aggressive plan to launch plug-in-hybrid and, later, electric Jeeps throughout the coming decade.

Renowned coaches are often asked what the difference is between the best athletes and everyone else. In other words, “What do really successful people do that most people don’t?” Of course, there are the typical responses of genetics, luck, and talent.
But there’s an added element most don’t think of…It is the will to be relentless and resilient in the Grind. It’s the ability to handle the boredom of training every day and doing the same lifts, drills and film review over and over again that separates the professionals from the amateurs.
Think about it this way – it’s not that the best athletes have some insane, boundless passion or willpower others don’t; it can even be the exact opposite. They can feel the same boredom and lack of motivation everyone else experiences and aren’t immune to the sometimes tedious heft of the daily grind.
What sets them apart is their commitment to the process. They fall in love with the daily practice, with the repetition, and
What does it mean to connect the dots, and how do you even detect the dots you want to connect?
Connect the dots originated from a picture game linking numbered dots in order, without lifting your writing instrument, to form a drawing. Today, it has evolved into a colloquialism about discovering a pattern and linking different ideas and experiences. These connections exist in the choices you make to solve problems, address day-to-day challenges, and find solutions for yourself and your teams.
In life and work, detecting the essential dots requires the ability to zoom in on and pan out from the things that define an issue. This means you need to be able to see both the minute details and the big picture.
Just like in the original game, you need to be able to stay in touch with moving to the next dot by zooming in on the task at hand and, at the same time, keep a clear, concise picture of the other issues, risks and resources related to the task, ensuring you don’t stray. Specifical
Talent in today’s business environment is the catalyst of success. This is proven time and again by those companies that rank recruiting and talent as their number one priority, year in and year out. Companies like Apple, Disney, Nike and Google all rank a commitment to hiring top talent as their number 1 priority. These organizations are also all on Fortune’s list of Most Admired Companies.
Does this mean these organizations never make bad hires? NO! What this means is that these companies work hard to avoid bad hires, also called mis-hires. By training their managers on best hiring practices and adhering to company wide guidelines around how to recruit, interview and select candidates, these market leaders proactively set the bar higher than other competitive organizations.
It is imperative to have a great hiring system in place. While other resources can and should be used in this process development, we will lay the groundwork here to set up a proper recruiting and interviewi
Think of the most successful employees you’ve ever worked with, or the individuals you’ve mentored who excelled, or the leaders you’ve studied who seem to achieve every goal they set for themselves. Undoubtedly, a few common threads woven into their lives are the strength to discover why they failed, the skill to use that learning in the future to succeed, and the sheer will to get back on the horse and try again.
But exactly what is it that leads one person to try again when others just give up?
Industrial and organizational psychologists have spent decades researching this very subject. Angela Duckworth, assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania, and her research focuses on a personality trait she calls “grit.” She defines grit as “sticking with things over the very long term until you master them.” She writes that “the gritty individual approaches achievement as a marathon; his or her advantage is stamina.”

We cannot treat our way out of the rising cancer caseload. The only solution is a full-scale defense, so that nobody suffers the disease in the first place.
By Madeline Drexler
In the next few years, cancer will become the leading cause of death in the United States. Later in this century, it is likely to be the top cause of death worldwide. The shift marks a dramatic epidemiological transition: the first time in history that cancer will reign as humankind’s number-one killer.
It’s a good news/bad news story. Cancer is primarily a disease of aging, and the dubiously good news is that we are living long enough to experience its ravages. Cancer’s new ranking also reflects public health’s impressive gains against infectious disease, which held the top spot until the last century, and against heart disease, the current number one.
The bad news is that cancer continues to bring pain and sorrow wherever it strikes. Siddhartha Mukherjee titled his magisterial biography of cancer T
