Mitochondrial Dysfunction, Deuterium, and COVID-19

Thursday, February 25, 2021
3:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.
Online via Zoom (link will be provided to all registrants by email)

In this thought provoking talk, Dr. Stephanie Seneff will show how Glyphosate, (the active ingredient in Roundup) is pervasive in our food supply and the processed foods industry likely interferes with the processes that maintain low deuterium in mitochondria, and how viruses in general, and SARS CoV-2 in particular, serve a useful role in restoring low deuterium levels in mitochondria.

The Future of Work: Ghost Work and the Impact of AI

Tuesday, March 16, 2021
3:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.
Online via Zoom (link will be provided to all registrants by email)

Author Mary L. Gray will share an insightful talk on her research and new book Ghost Work, a startling exposé of the invisible human workforce that powers the web and provides services for companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and Uber. These companies employ a vast human labour force that is kept deliberately concealed and her book proposes how we can restore dignity and prosperity to the lives of the growing invisible workforce.
