What’s New and a Message from Dr. Murray

Print This Post Print This Post

Sometimes it seems as if life’s events take over and we forget to actually live out our lives the way we want them to be.

World Cup Soccer Championship seems to have captured our fascination. The Gulf oil spill, Afghanistan, the economy, Obama-Care and Iran are like chronic sores in our consciousness, but somehow we manage to come back to reality with our National Holidays, the smiles and antics of our children and grandchildren, a day of fishing, a round of golf or a great night out with our spouse. Yes, these are hard times, but when we pull together as a nation we are unstoppable.

Wishing you and your family a very Happy 4th of July! Travel safely and don’t forget the sunscreen!

What’s New?

Introducing the ImplicitGuide (iGuide) Surgical Suture System
The ground breaking new standard in technology for a younger looking you!

This May, I had the pleasure and privilege to train with the inventor himself, Dr. Gregory Mueller in Beverly Hills, California. Dr. Mueller spent almost three years perfecting this neck lifting operation. The iGuide is used to over sew the muscles of the neck restoring the neck to a more youthful jaw line. Unlike all other neck lifting procedures, this one leaves NO unsightly scars, it is performed under local anesthesia and the down time is minimal.

The full procedure involves small liposuction under the chin using local anesthesia, the trampoline suture system is then inserted using a patented fiber optic rod. It is these fiber optic rods that make this procedure unique and different from all the others.

Total Interconnectivity

While the following might not seem to have anything to do with medicine, I thought it was interesting. The interconnectivity that we feel today with iPhones, iPad and Wi-Fi is now going to occur on the battlefields of tomorrow (maybe as soon as next year). A company out of Chicago called Tanagram is putting a 360 degree camera into the helmets of our soldiers that communicates with a battle base somewhere in the U.S. The soldier is then able to “laser paint” a building, person or even room as being dangerous which is then sent immediately to all other soldiers in the vicinity. If a place has been shown by a previous soldier or encounter to be a dangerous place, the “virtual battlefields” computers will let the soldier know where those areas are and appropriate measures can be taken. And most of this technology will be available via the soldier’s iPhone by next year!! Dick Tracy you are already outdated!

Your Personal Genome

If you wanted to get your entire sequence of your Genome (all of the millions of genes that make up you) it would currently cost you about $20,000.00 to $48,000.00. The previous goal has been to get it to about $1000.00 Not Bad! Now a team from Harvard University has devised a way to make pico liter droplets of water; putting these on as many as 1000 computer chips will allow them to give you your entire genome for about $30.00. Production is still a year or two away but, the future possibilities are practically endless at these prices.

Pancreatic Cancer

Although we are uncertain why, we do know that pancreatic cancer is on the rise. The Koch Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts has devised a technology that implants an electrode carrying anti-cancerous medicine directly into the pancreas. A second electrode is then applied to the outside of the body and an electrical current is activated which drives the medicine directly into the tumor.

The reason pancreatic tumors have been so hard to cure is the blood supply that carries the anti-cancerous medicine to the pancreas is very limited. This technology will allow hundreds of times greater concentration of medicine to that area.

Solar Doomsday?

Scientists believe the Earth will be hit with unprecedented levels of magnetic energy from solar flares after the Sun wakes “from a deep slumber” sometime around 2013. NASA said the “super storm” would hit like a bolt of lightening and could cause catastrophic consequences for world’s health, emergency systems and national security. They believe it could damage everything from emergency service’s system, hospital equipment, banking systems, air traffic control systems as well as every day items such as home computers, iPods, and GPS navigation systems. Due to our heavy reliance on electronic devices, which are sensitive to magnetic energy, the storm could leave a multi-million dollar damage bill.

Dr. Richard Fisher, director of NASA’s Heliophysics division recently reported that every 22 years the sun’s magnetic energy cycle peaks while the number of sun spots and solar flares hits a maximum level every 11 years. Dr. Fisher, a NASA scientist for 20 years, said these two events would combine in 2013 to produce huge levels of radiation and could cause major problems for the world.

In parts of Europe where the electrical grid is fragile they could be without power and access to electronic devices for hours even days or weeks. The economic costs could be twenty times greater than Hurricane Katrina ($125 Billion).

Singularity is around the Corner

The genius and inventor Raymond Kurzweil has been telling us that singularity is just around the corner. This will be the point in time when computer machines will exceed the capacity and performance of the human brain. In other words, it will be the integration of man and machine into one. Recent articles have assessed the impact that the iPad will have on the approach of singularity and the consensus is that this one single device will accelerate the eventual time by 7 years. The Singularity University claims that when the time comes old age, disease, and even death will become a thing of the past. I mean we already have robotic Avatars that will allow our offspring to continue to interact with all of our past experiences after we are dead!

Google and IBM are currently working on a computer that will not only be as powerful as our brain but will be able to flawlessly retrieve and solve any problem that is in their data base. Their data base is absolutely massive. In other words, as soon as the computer can continually answer the question “what if” in an infinite manner, Singularity will have arrived.

If you are interested and are accepted, the Singularity University currently offers 9 day courses where you can interact and learn the newest scientific breakthroughs in fields such as nanotechnology, artificial intelligence robotics, genomics and energy. Of course there are detractors. I personally dismiss them all out of hand because history shows us that as long as technology improves length, ease and quality of life, it cannot be stopped.
