Gayatri Devi, M.D., the Vagus nerve guru and Calm Brain author | Neuro-Immune Regulatory Pathways | Scoop.it
Gayatri Devi MD is a neurologist and the Director of the New York Memory Services. She is a Clinical Associate Professor at the New York University School of Medicine.

 

I am reading her book outloud to my wife about 10 pages at a time.  It is calming our brains.  I have become a fan of hers, because she really knows what she is talking about, has a holistic approach that does not abandon good science, and tells her truth like a very interesting story.

ALTHOUGH no company is mentioned by name, it is very clear which American internet giant the European Parliament has in mind in a resolution that has been doing the rounds in the run-up to a vote on November 27th. One draft calls for “unbundling search engines from other commercial services” to ensure a level playing field for European companies and consumers. This is the latest and most dramatic outbreak of Googlephobia in Europe.
