3.03 The National Lung Matrix Trial & the Major Flaw of the SPRINT Trial with Dr. Mark Friedberg

This week we discuss two major papers: The first was just recently released in Nature and it’s titled “The National Lung Matrix Trial of personalized therapy in lung cancer”. The second is a few years old, but exemplifies the importance of trial design. We discuss the second paper, titled “A Randomized Trial of Intensive versus Standard Blood-Pressure Control” and published in the New England Journal of Medicine with Dr. Mark Friedberg, a health policies and performance measurement researcher.

When Garrett Thomas introduced THE RING THING at the famous FFFF invitation-only close-up magic convention, some of the top close-up magicians in the world were asking to see it over and over again. Luminaries such as David Blaine, Jeff McBride, Gregory Wilson and many others have asked Garrett to teach them this fabulous impromptu routine. Why? Because it looks like real magic! And now, every detail of THE RING THING can be yours- Garrett Thomas has held nothing back. THE RING THING looks like trick photography . . . but it's not! It's a quick, visual, impromptu miracle that you can do right before their eyes. You pull off your finger ring, toss it back towards your other hand . . . and it visibly appears back on your finger! Garrett doesn't just stop at teaching THE RING THING. This DVD is a post-graduate course in finger ring magic. Of course, effects that can be performed at a moment's notice and with no preparation are some of the most valuable tricks to know and finger rings are everyday objects that are always available. Imagine visibly taking a ring on and off right through your finger! Imagine visibly changing a coin into a ring and then back into a coin again! Imagine causing an invisible ring to really become visible! All of this . . . and much more . . . are revealed in Garrett Thomas' THE RING THING! Running Time Approximately 57min
