Interviewed by London Real

Print Friendly

This week I was visiting EPFL, a leading research University in Switzerland, where I gave my presentation “Dynamic Tensegrities: Foundation for Motion and Thought.” I was really excited to be talking there at EPFL since there were a number of researchers in the audience for whom I have a lot of respect, such as Prof. Auke Ijspeert from the BioRobotics Lab, and Prof. Dario Floreano from the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems. Some great Tensegrity Structures research is also being done there by Prof. Ian Smith in the Applied Computing and Mechanics Laboratory.

While I gave my talk, Brian Rose, producer of London Real TV, filmed me and then interviewed me afterwards. You can see the final podcast production below or on their site! Its fun to finally get some of the ideas on video where it can be shared with a wider audience. One funny thing though, everyone here in Europe seems to jump to the conclusion that I have a PhD and calls me “Dr. Vytas.” I keep explaining to folks that I skipped that step and went straight to leading cutting edge research. Anyways, enjoy the show, its been a fun couple days for me!

CMS was fortunate enough to have two prominent retired physicians who volunteered at the office on an as-needed basis. These physicians specialized in family practice medicine. This office was opened as and still is a full-time site. Key to the development of CMS was the structure of a signed, management agreement between FCCAA and CMS. These two organizations coordinate services a great deal pain medication online without prescription and remain closely linked, with CMS utilizing bookkeeping, reporting, marketing, planning and development, information technology and human resources services from FCCAA.

There are two key surgical steps in performing vasectomy: 1) isolation of the vas and 2) occlusion of the vas. The risks of intraoperative and early postoperative pain, bleeding and infection are related mainly to the method of vas isolation. The success and failure rates of vasectomy are related to the method of vas occlusion (see next section titled Vas Occlusion Techniques). Lung volumes in 4,774 patients with obstructive lung disease. STUDY OBJECTIVES: To determine the correlates of static lung volumes in patients with airways obstruction, and to determine if static lung volumes differ between asthma and COPD. RV % predicted (but not the TLC % predicted), was strongly associated with the degree of airways obstruction (the FEV1 % predicted). Patients with moderate to severe airways obstruction and high RV and TLC levels were more likely to have COPD than asthma.
