Medical science offers no treatments to cure Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons, ALS and other neuro degenerative diseases. There are also no preventive medicines available. Dr. David Schubert, Professor and Laboratory Head at the Cellular Neurobiology Laboratory at the Salk Institute, has been researching Alzheimer‘s to bring relief to those millions who are in desperate need of help. We have an opportunity to interview Dr. Schubert.

Florian Zsok of the University of Zurich has dedicated years to seeking out answers to the question of the relationships between couples and has published his studies to great acclaim. We have an opportunity to interview him and hear about his insights.

Our previous interview with Mark Gordon was dedicated to the exciting world of shipwrecks, miles underwater. It offered an insight into the work of Odyssey Marine Exploration, their team, and the high-tech equipment they use.  This second segment focuses on the Cultural Heritage Convention, the ownership of treasures that are discovered and where these treasures are to be found.

TREASURE – The very word evokes a feeling of adventure and legend. Scientists, anthropologists, and governments are as enamored with deep sea treasures as the average person. Odyssey Marine Exploration, founded in 1994 and listed on the NASDAQ, is an organization that comprises professionals, scientists, and technicians and is dedicated to underwater and deep sea exploration of treasure and minerals.
