Did you hear the news about the NSA collecting thousands of photos of faces every day, as part of a facial recognition effort? Turns out, your face is more unique than your fingerprint, and government agencies and private companies are developing new programs to find and identify faces. The New York Times´ Natasha Singer gives us an update on the state of facial recognition. Then: So if you want to protect your privacy when you´re online or on the street, what do you do? Photographer Adam Harvey is developing a DIY solution. After that, one future that most of us face is seeing someone in the mirror we don´t quite recognize. Here´s Donna McNeil´s story about facing aging. Next, there´s an emerging option for people with severe facial disfigurements. The first facial transplant happened in France in 2006. Since then about 30 people have undergone the grueling surgery. In 2012, Dr. Eduardo Rodriguez led a team at the University of Maryland Medical Center that attempted the most extensive face transplant yet. That´s followed by physicist Michio Kaku´s dangerous (?) idea: A virtual ´´library of souls.´´ And finally: Got World Cup fever? Here´s Roger Kittleson on how Brazilian politics, culture, and passion is wrapped up in soccer. [Broadcast Date: June 18, 2014] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Fleming.

Is your life at work is spinning out of control? Business people from New York to New Delhi are desperately trying to keep up with the speed of life. In today´s global economy, jobs demand we respond to information immediately, outsmart and outsell the competition, manage the markets, and generally transform ourselves into business superstars while balancing quality time with family and friends. With hectic schedules and demands, there is no space left for peace and reflection, which are as essential as they are scarce today. The Secret of the Seven Seeds tells of the successful entrepreneur and writer David Fischman´s struggle with his out-of-control life. In this fascinating and instructive audiobook, he reveals his personal story through the fictional character Ignacio Rodriguez. Ignacio is a 40-something stressed-out entrepreneur who is utterly overwhelmed. He is at risk for a heart attack, is losing money at his business (where employee morale is at an all-time low), and has no time or energy for his family. As his life spins out of control, his doctor recommends meditation to regain balance. A spiritual guide helps Ignacio heal by finding his path in the secret of the seven seeds...the path to success and balance in life: Self-knowledge, Meditation, Egolessness, Service to others, Goodness, Balance, and Freedom. As Ignacio applies these seven seeds to his work life, he is transformed and becomes happier, more balanced, and ultimately more effective at work. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Marosz.
