Cognitive Fitness

The Idea in Brief

What do Alan Greenspan, Warren Buffett, and Sumner Redstone have in common? They’re still at the peak of their intellectual powers despite their advanced ages, defying the widespread belief that our mental capacity inevitably deteriorates as we get older.

Leaders who are as sharp at 60 as they were at 25 constantly hone their cognitive fitness: their ability to reason, remember, learn, plan, and adapt. According to Gilkey and Kilts, such executives practice specific techniques to stimulate development of new brain cells and neural networks: They use indirect experiences such as observation or simulations to form new neural pathways, regularly engage in play, search for patterns in seemingly unrelated fields of endeavor, and seek novel experiences.

But the best leaders do more than just enhance their own cognitive fitness. They also promote “brain-positive” cultures in their organizations by encouraging colleagues and employees to apply these four

Dentist in Inglewood

For more than 22 years, Dr. Deborah Fox has led a private orthodontist practice in Rochester, New York. Dr. Deborah Fox recently introduced to her office the iTero Digital Scanner, which provides an alternative to traditional impressions.

Many dental and orthodontic patients dread sitting through an impression. The associated material is not only messy but also can be extremely uncomfortable and can easily activate a patient’s gag reflex. The iTero Digital Scanner serves as a safe and comfortable alternative. Using laser technology, it takes an accurate three-dimensional image of the patient’s teeth and gums.

The iTero Digital Scanner uses a hand-held wand that the dentist or orthodontist manipulates to capture images of the teeth. The scan appears on a screen that both practitioner and patient can view in real time, and the final product is then available to transmit directly to a laboratory. Furthermore, if the practice has

The Planet Fitness Nightmare | T Nation

  1. Planet Fitness: The gym for people who don’t really want to get in shape, owned by people who really can’t afford for the members to be there.

  2. A survey of over 20 different Planet Fitness locations in 12 different states revealed that they provide no nutritional guidance. They do however supply candy and pizza.

  3. Planet Fitness seems to promise that health and fitness will ultimately be comfortable and not involve any real effort.

  4. Planet Fitness is a big, purple-colored adult daycare marketed to people afraid to go to an actual gym.

  5. Many Planet Fitness members do want to make progress of course, but the gym’s own rules and operating guidelines seem to dissuade this.

“We’re Not a Gym.” Obviously.

I’d heard things about Planet Fitness gyms that I found hard to believe. These stories included strict rules disallowing heavy weights
