With the Gosnell case gone to the jury the question becomes. How did we reach the point where we so devalued life? Well today’s guest knows a bit about redefining what “alive” means.

Today on DaTechGuy on DaRadio we welcome Dr. Paul Byrne of the Life Guardian Foundation for the full two hours as we talk about Brain Death, life and the history behind terms that don’t quite mean what you might think they do.

It all happens Today Noon till 2 EST join us either via FTR Radio or via the Money Matters Radio network or listen via our terrestrial radio stations

I know it’s hard to believe but it’s actually possible that some of you might have missed this week’s DaTechGuy on DaRadio featuring Dr. Paul Byrne in Hour 1 and Hostess Baker Mike Hummell in hour 2.

Well now that Saturdays’ show is available it’s a problem easily solved by clicking here.

And don’t forget to catch a double does of DaTechGuy on DaRadio this week as at 10 AM on WCRN we welcome Mary Lotze in the first hour and comedian Evan Sayet in the 2nd at 10 AM EST on WCRN but I’ll get guest hosting a special edition of DaTechGuy on DaRadio one hour later from 1-3 PM on the Money Matters Radio Network.

Be there or be square!

Update: Wrong show 111 vs 112, fixed

Today on DaTechGuy on DaRadio we have two very different discussions to chew on.

In our first hour we talk to Dr. Paul Byrne a giant in the care of premature children.  He will be giving his thought on end of life issues including “Brain Death” vs true death and discover that a lot of what you believe isn’t what you think it is.

In the second hour we turn to the Hostess Strike.  I’ve hit the bakers union a bit on the blog and the show and though it would be good to get a 2nd perspective so Mike Hummell of the Bakers Union will be joining us.  Was the Bakers union unreasonable?  Were they “Going Galt?” both or neither, we’ll find out in the 2nd hour.

It all starts at 10 AM on WCRN AM 830 and we’d love to have you join the conversation 508-438-0965 or 888-9-FEDORA.

Interestingly enough there is an article at the BBC on this very subject:

A Canadian man who was believed to have been in a vegetative state for more than a decade, has been able to tell scientists that he is not in any pain.

It’s the first time an uncommunicative, severely brain-injured patient has been able to give answers clinically relevant to their care.

Scott Routley, 39, was asked questions while having his brain activity scanned in an fMRI machine.

His doctor says the discovery means medical textbooks will need rewriting.
