For decades, Carter Niemeyer made a career of reintroducing the gray wolf into the Lower 48. As a government wildlife biologist, he trapped wolves and released them into Yellowstone, investigated complaints from ranchers and yes, shot wolves deemed a nuisance. On Thursday, Niemeyer joins us to talk about the life of an ethical outdoorsman described in his memoir, “Wolfer,” and offer his take on the fact and fiction surrounding wolf recovery.
The Utah Environmental Congress is hosting a presentation by wildlife biologist Carter Niemeyer on Saturday, September 8 at 6:30 p.m. at the Chase Mill in Tracy Aviary, Liberty Park, Salt Lake City. Tickets are $10 at the door.
How can the placebo effect be explained? Can the mind promote healing of the body? And why hasn’t the medical establishment given more serious consideration to placebos? These are the questions that vexed Harvard Medical professor Richard Kradin and he set out for some answers. On Thursday, we talk with Kradin about his book, “The Placebo Response and the Power of Unconscious Healing.”
Dr. Kradin will speak about the placebo response Thursday, Sept. 6 at 6:30 p.m. at the City Library here in downtown Salt Lake City. The event, sponsored by the Jung Society of Utah.
