    The Valley Current®: Coming Health Metrics That Wearables Will Allow in the 21st Century

    The Valley Current®: Coming Health Metrics That Wearables Will Allow in the 21st Century

    Steps, blood pressure, heart rate, stress, sleep. These are just a few things that are now trackable through your phone’s fitness tracker, smart watch or other wearable device. While it doesn’t beat a visit to your physician, wearables are encouraging people to keep an eye on their health and fitness levels. The only issues that Dr Leonard Hayflick recognizes with wearables is the possibility of inaccurate data and if your average person knows how to interpret the data and understanding changes in that data over time. Jack Russo and Dr Leonard Hayflick look to a future where checking your health and fitness reports are as easy as checking your phone.

    The Valley Current®: Role of Hyperbaric Treatments on Aging.....Is it Real and Reliable?

    The Valley Current®: Role of Hyperbaric Treatments on Aging.....Is it Real and Reliable?

    Hyperbaric chambers were once the leading treatments for deferring dementia decades ago. Though their usage for preventing or delaying dementia eventually faded out since due to weak evidence, the practice is being resurrected for similar reasons. This article reports the details a small experiment showing that hyperbaric oxygen therapy indeed increases telomere length, which has been associated with people who live longer lives. But, as Dr Leonard Hayflick points out to Jack Russo, maintaining a constant telomere length is also a property of cancer cells. Could there be a major revelation hiding this paper or is it just another weak idea destined to go as quickly as it came?

    The Valley Current®: F. Lee Bailey and the Evolution of Law and Litigation

    The Valley Current®: F. Lee Bailey and the Evolution of Law and Litigation

    His name may have millennials scratching their heads, but the late F. Lee Bailey was a major figure in the field of Law, even after his disbarment. Bailey is best known for being a criminal defense lawyer in several high-profile cases including the Boston Strangler, Patty Hearst, O.J. Simpson, and the court-martial of Captain Ernest Medina during Vietnam where he met Melvin Belli and our very own Robert Lieff. Though he was nowhere near as successful as Belli, Jack Russo and Robert Lieff discuss why Bailey is still recognized as one of the most famous lawyers in American history.

    The Valley Current®: Why is Cellular Senescence Important To Understanding Healthspan versus Lifespan Over Time?

    The Valley Current®: Why is Cellular Senescence Important To Understanding Healthspan versus Lifespan Over Time?

    Publishing his paper on cell senescence was a distressing process for Dr. Hayflick that was contested by many other scientists in his field. Years later, cell senescence is widely accepted as an obvious fact. Now that the phenomena of cellular senescence is recognized as accepted knowledge, you might be wondering what you should do with this information. Surely something as involuntary and unmanageable as this happening inside your body isn’t of much importance to your life in the long run, right? Jack Russo and Dr Leonard Hayflick talk about the science behind manipulating our longevity and health as we age.

    The Valley Current®: Part 1 - What is Cellular Senescence and How It Was Discovered by Professor Leonard Hayflick

    The Valley Current®: Part 1 - What is Cellular Senescence and How It Was Discovered by Professor Leonard Hayflick

    Years ago, it was believed that the cells in our bodies were immortal, and they could replicate forever. Today we know about cell senescence, though very few people understand what it is, let alone the way it affects their bodies. To laymanise things: cells do not replicate forever, and, with few exceptions, there is a limit to how many times a cell can divide. This concept is now known as the Hayflick Limit and was discovered by our very own Doctor Leonard Hayflick. Jack Russo asks Leonard Hayflick to explain how he found this Nobel worthy discovery and the alarming reason why you don’t want to have immortal cells in your body.

    The Valley Current®: What Can a 93-Year-Old Federal Circuit Judge Teach Us About Due Process?

    The Valley Current®: What Can a 93-Year-Old Federal Circuit Judge Teach Us About Due Process?

    11 million patents issued over 185 years is, on average, nearly 60,000 per year, but we know the real acceleration occurred over the last 20 or so years. This kind of acceleration will only continue as AI drives automation of both creation, filing and even prosecution!  While we are speeding headfirst into the future, something is happening in the patent office that is making older judges like Judge Pauline Newman shake their heads. According to Judge Newman, patent owners are making a strong argument that they are not getting due process when in direct contradiction to Congressional incentives. So, is due process being handled the way it was intended to be set up? Following the issuing of patent no. 11 million, Jack Russo and Jill Riola react to the notion that patents that may have invalidated because due process has been corrupted and what should be done to correct it.
