Summary

Raising costs, ever-increasing regulatory hurdles, and mounting difficulties in finding the next blockbuster drug are just a few of the challenges Big Pharma currently has to face for its research and development process, the heart of its risky business. 

Big Data claims to be full of insights that Big Pharma need to find a way of harvesting, which could lead to new compounds. Academics, Big Data start-ups, and pharmaceutical companies have focused their research efforts on analytic tools and data technologies to store, collect, analyse, and extract these insights from massive data sets. However, the key question is whether the Big Data hype really does have the claimed accelerating effect on the complex research and development process or if it actually creates another hurdle for Big Pharma innovation.

Malena Johannes' timely book sheds light on this question by examining the top 5 pharmaceutical companies and provides an overview on the status quo of Big Data applications within the pharmaceutical industry.

    Who are we? Where we came from? Where are we going? Here are some questions that carry throughout life and are more present from the metanoia (or second half of life) - Greek word that has two roots: meta, which means both "significant change" and "beyond," derived from nous, a word of multiple and complex meanings, including "higher consciousness" - when man begins to wonder about the meaning of life, in search of spirituality. Respond to them has been the great challenge of science, performing research and studies in an attempt to clarify such mysteries. 
    What brought this work can not carry the truth claim, but is only an understanding of reality mode. Nothing I can say about the origin or purpose of man since the process still takes place, that is, there is always a "being" (becoming, coming-to-be), a processing that seems to have to do with what Jung called "individuation" - or principle individuation - which is to carry out or consciously realize the full potential of each. What is up with this work is only the communication of compliance.

    An extensive natural history of the marvelous mollusk, featuring stunning photography, underwater research, and personal narratives. 
     
    The visually arresting and often misunderstood octopus has long captured popular imagination. With an alien appearance and an uncanny intellect, this exceptional sea creature has inspired fear in famous lore and legends—from the giant octopus attack in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea to Ursula the sea witch in The Little Mermaid. Yet its true nature is more wondrous still. After decades of research, the authors reveal a sensitive, curious, and playful animal with remarkable intelligence, an ability to defend itself with camouflage and jet propulsion, an intricate nervous system, and advanced problem-solving abilities. 
     
    In this beautifully photographed book, three leading marine biologists bring readers face to face with these amazingly complex animals that have fascinated scientists for decades. From the molluscan ancestry of today’s octopus to its ingenious anatomy, amazing mating and predatory behaviors, and other-worldly relatives, the authors take readers through the astounding life cycle, uncovering the details of distinctive octopus personalities. With personal narratives, underwater research, stunning closeup photography, and thoughtful guidance for keeping octopuses in captivity, Octopus is the first comprehensive natural history of this smart denizen of the sea. 
     
    Praise for Octopus: The Ocean’s Intelligent Invertebrate 
     
    “The octopus—strange, mysterious, perfectly camouflaged, able to change texture, color, and shape, bendable, sneaky, and intelligent. I heartily recommend this book.” —Jean-Michel Cousteau, President, Ocean Futures Society

    You've probably seen it before: a human brain dramatically lit from the side, the camera circling it like a helicopter shot of Stonehenge, and a modulated baritone voice exalting the brain's elegant design in reverent tones. 
    To which this audiobook says: Pure nonsense. In a work at once deeply learned and wonderfully accessible, the neuroscientist David Linden counters the widespread assumption that the brain is a paragon of design - and in its place gives us a compelling explanation of how the brain's serendipitous evolution has resulted in nothing short of our humanity. A guide to the strange and often illogical world of neural function, The Accidental Mind shows how the brain is not an optimized, general-purpose problem-solving machine, but rather a weird agglomeration of ad-hoc solutions that have been piled on through millions of years of evolutionary history. Moreover, Linden tells us how the constraints of evolved brain design have ultimately led to almost every transcendent human foible: our long childhoods, our extensive memory capacity, our search for love and long-term relationships, our need to create compelling narrative, and, ultimately, the universal cultural impulse to create both religious and scientific explanations. 
    With forays into evolutionary biology, this analysis of mental function answers some of our most common questions about how we've come to be who we are.
