The future of CDNs with Matthew Phillips

DevToolsTopia

A content delivery network, or content distribution network (CDN), is a geographically distributed network of proxy servers and their data centers (Wikipedia). Basically, it speeds up the process of loading web pages by reducing the distance between your computer and the server where files are stored. The use of CDNs is now ubiquitous. But, according to Skypack (a JavaScript CDN), "Despite the last 10 years of progress, webpage speeds have not improved over time." Matthew Phillips, an engineer at Skypack, joins the show to teach us more! Why is that happening? How are CDNs changing, and how is the Skypack CDN helping Node.JS be compatible with browsers?  And most importantly, what's coming next in the future of CDNs?  Spoiler alert: Do we all become roving human CDNs? Here are the links mentioned in this episode: SkypackSkypack's Twitter Matthew's TwitterMatthew's website, with recipes

Episode 199 | Fasting And Ketogenic Diets In Degeneration And Cancer With Dr. Matthew Phillips And Sarona Rameka

Dr. Joe Tatta | The Healing Pain Podcast

We're discussing both the research and clinical applications of the use of a ketogenic diet to treat neurodegeneration autoimmunity and cancer. We're joined by not one, but two guests. I know you're going to love and learn lots of great information from. Our first guest is Dr. Matthew Phillips. He's a neurologist who is both studying and using a ketogenic diet. Our second guest is his patient Sarona Rameka, who is a stage-four cancer survivor. Dr. Phillips is a full-time clinical and research neurologist in New Zealand. His passion is to explore the potential feasibility, safety and efficacy of metabolic therapies, particularly ketogenic diets and fasting in creating alternate metabolic states that may improve not only symptoms, but also function and quality of life for people with a variety of neurological conditions. Sarona is the first documented person in the world to utilize fasting and ketogenic diet as the primary management strategy for a metastatic cancer in the absence of surgery, chemotherapy, or radiotherapy culminating in a near complete regression. Nearly three years after being diagnosed with inoperable metastatic cancer, she shows no signs of disease and leads a full and active life. Without further ado, let's meet Dr. Matthew Phillips and his patient Sarona and learn all about the implications for a ketogenic diet. Love the show? Subscribe, rate, review, and share!

Episode 101: Dr. Matthew Phillips

The Empowering Neurologist Podcast

Today on The Empowering Neurologist I had the pleasure of again spending time with Dr. Matthew Phillips. He’s been on the program in the past discussing the effectiveness of the ketogenic diet in Parkinson’s disease.   Today he explores the notion of fasting, and reveals how powerful a therapy this may represent as it relates to both keeping the brain healthy as well as in the treatment of existing disease. I’d like to share the conclusion from his recent publication, Fasting as a Therapy in Neurological Disease, as I think it says a lot: "In an era of rising healthcare costs and an increasing prevalence of neurological disease, the introduction of a self-empowering, cost-free, effective therapeutic option for a range of neurological disorders would be a welcome addition to the armamentarium of physicians. Today’s most common neurological disorders are fundamentally characterized by defective metabolism, on many levels. Given that fasting is a simple, multi-targeted, and essentially “metabolic” therapy with a healthy track record for treating a variety of neurological diseases in animals, it holds promise as a treatment for analogous diseases in humans. Despite this promise, the state of the evidence in humans is extremely limited; many more studies are needed before the actual clinical efficacy of fasting as a therapy in human neurological disorders can be ascertained. Yet if these studies can be prioritized, perhaps the day will come when fasting regimens are prescribed alongside medication-based approaches, culminating in the inception of a unified metabolic approach, capable of modifying not only the symptoms, but also the natural course, of the most common, disabling neurological diseases in existence."

Episode 79: Dr. Matthew Phillips

The Empowering Neurologist Podcast

While there certainly are various medications that prove somewhat helpful in the treatment of symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease, it's important to recognize that these medications are not actually treating the underlying disease itself. We now understand that one of the pivotal mechanisms in Parkinson's disease is compromise of energy production, at the level of the mitochondria. This ultimately manifest as various problems, not just in the brain, but actually throughout the entire body. With this understanding, specifically targeting mitochondrial function makes sense as a way of actually addressing this fundamental underlying abnormality in Parkinson's disease.   As many of you are aware, the ketogenic diet has been demonstrated to enhance mitochondrial function. As such, it should be considered as a candidate, at least, in terms of treating a disease like Parkinson's. In fact, this is the subject of a recent interventional trial in which actual Parkinson's patients were placed on a ketogenic diet under the direction of Dr. Matthew Phillips.   Today, the empowering neurologists interviews Dr. Matt Phillips about his recent published research in which he demonstrates powerfully positive results in Parkinson's patients placed on a ketogenic diet. How wonderful it is that we are now seeing published research dealing with nutritional interventions, especially in these challenging situations.
