    The Valley Current®: What Do Biologists Need to Learn from Physicists About the Second Law of Thermodynamics and Its Impact on Humans (and All Other Matter)? -Part 2

    Go through history and you’ll find that one of mankind’s greatest missions has always been the quest to conquer death. From the Fountain of Youth to age defying pills and injections, nothing has been able to defy the second law of thermodynamics. While stopping or reversing the effects of aging may be forever out of our reach, Dr Leonard Hayflick believes there are things we can do to benefit the pathways that keep us alive and consequently add to our longevity indirectly. Jack Russo asks if we will be able to do more than manipulate longevity as science progresses or if we will continue to swap one bottle of snake oil for the next.

    The Valley Current®: What is Emerging as 21st Century Post-Pandemic Alternative Dispute Resolution?

    The Valley Current®: What is Emerging as 21st Century Post-Pandemic Alternative Dispute Resolution?

    As many of us know, too many lawyers tend to treat mediation as if it were a trial and try to be as persuasive as possible to the opposing party. While a lawyer should always be an advocate for their client, this zealous approach is more likely to lead to an expensive and time-consuming trial. It’s been 20 years since Jack Russo started The Foundation for Creativity in Dispute Resolution which promotes the use of zealous creativity over zealous advocacy so both parties can cocreate a solution with a less controversial outcome. Can the future of lawyers be more peacemaker instead of advocate and can we be creative enough to make it a reality?

    The Valley Current®: Will AI-Based Automation Change the Game on the AI Talent Wars in Silicon Valley (and Beyond)? – Part 2

    The Valley Current®: Will AI-Based Automation Change the Game on the AI Talent Wars in Silicon Valley (and Beyond)? – Part 2

    Silicon Valley is on fire… at least when it comes to artificial intelligence talent. With a high demand for people who know how to build artificial intelligence systems and not enough talent to go around, it’s an all-out war for companies to acquire talented employees. Add in that the average employee tenure is around 3 years and companies now have the added concern of wanting to look attractive to future employees. Is it all bad news for AI companies looking to add to their team or will AI itself become part of the solution? Jack Russo asks Andrew Gardiner about all the challenges of finding talent for a field that really isn’t even here yet.

    The Valley Current®: Will Founders and other Entrepreneurs (particularly serial entrepreneurs) in and outside Silicon Valley Ever Become Savvy to Tax and Financial Planning for their Qualified Small Business Stock (QSBS)? - Part 2

    We all dream about starting up or investing in the next unicorn company. It sounds like a nearly impossible longshot that will probably never happen to us, but it happens more often than you think living in Silicon Valley. It’s arguable that on the off chance we do grow a company worth $100+ million, founders and stockholders often don’t know what to do when tax season arrives. Jack Russo and CPA Steve Rabin dissect the underlooked areas of QSBS (Qualified Small Business Stock) 1202 & 1045 that provide big benefits for small business stocks.

Knowledge and Info with a Heart

I’ve listened to several of these podcasts, and my interest lies within the startup culture. Jack Russo genuinely passes along good information, and humanizes the startup, invention, and legal processes. His guests are treated like friends, and the discussions cover insider notes that are not apparent to someone without a legal background. I have subscribed to the podcast, and look forward to more episodes. Thank you for providing relevant and future forward content!
