Day 2: Reality Sinks In

03rd Mar 2016Uncategorized

The exuberance and the enthusiasm has diminished after day 1 but I am on a mission to promote Corporate Social Synergy and 1Click1Life. I received some really good suggestions from a friend which I really think will help a food drive that we are working on … will keep you posted.

Day 1: Campaign Kick Off

02nd Mar 2016Uncategorized

This is day one of my mission to promote 1Click1Life which facilitates corporate social synergy. I found myself picking up garbage in the middle of a snow storm. I asked for courage and strength to see this through… little did I know that I would have needed it on the first day. Anyway, proud of my self for getting through the first day.

At the 5:24 – 5:28 mark of the 1997 movie When Innocence Is Lost, you will see Gandhi (me) walk by followed by Keri Russell

I did’t realize that  Nicole de Boer was also in the scene… she would go on to be in my all time favorite show Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

Wise Up! Carry the Chihuahua Not the Handbag

012th Feb 2014Uncategorized

If a woman gives you a choice between holding her handbag or her Chihuahua , pick the Chihuahua!

Tattooing whipped on your forehead and walking around with your pants down will attract less attention than a man carrying a handbag. Take a look at what this fine gentleman did when faced with the handbag scenario:

Now carrying a Chihuahua on the other hand says that you are a caring, fun loving individual … and besides when you are carrying a Chihuahua other women come and pet your Chihuahua … I love double entendres!

When I chose the Chihuahua I kid you not I heard the Society for Uncompromising Men clapping in my head and I had to turnaround to see if they were actually there.

I found my Tuna, O Fortuna!

SustainableTuna

018th Jan 2014Health

Out of all the tuna species, Albacore is the most abundant, and even they are on the WWF near threatened list. However other species such as Yellowfin and Bluefin tuna are even worse off with Bluefin being put on the endangered status list by WWF. Skipjack however is listed as “Least Concern” by WWF.  Now if one must eat tuna, we as consumers can make some smart choices. Here is the 2013 Canned Tuna Sustainability Ranking from Greenpeace.  On top is the  Raincoast Traading  and coming in second place is Wild Planet Foods Inc. If I had a choice I would get Wild Planet Food Inc’s Skipjack (light tuna), and listen to Carmina Burana O’Fortuna while I eat my tuna sandwich… because it is tasty and depressing at the same time

Naturally Increase Your Growth Hormone Levels

image_0 (10)

017th Jan 2014Health, ,

Growth hormone is naturally produced by your pituitary gland and is responsible for building muscle, keeping your skin elastic, burning fat … among other things. As we age our levels of GH drops dramatically:

Declien in daily production of growth hormone with age.

Now there are injections that one can take, however it is always preferable to do it naturally. Please check out some of the resources below, but here is a summary of what I have learn’t so far in terms of what to do to keep your GH levels high:

  1. Strength train
  2. Sleep (around 8 hours)
  3. Ensure your diet has the right amino Acids
    1. Glycine
    2. Ornighine
    3. Arginine
    4. Lysine

The above amino acids are the most important, however there are some other notable mentions such as Glutamine, GABA and OKG. These amino acids comprise most of the ingredients found in over the counter GH boosters. However based on my primarily research you don’t necessarily have to turn to these products to boost your GH levels as long as you have a balanced diet that consistently gets sufficient quantities of protein. Having said this Dr. OZ suggests supplementation of the above mentioned amino acids (Glycine, Ornighine, Arginine and Lysine).

Science, Religion and Consciousness Oh My!

Consciousness

016th Sep 2013Consciousness, Religion, Science

The scientific revolution has changed humanity in many ways. Advancements made by science in fields such as medicine and technology has enabled us to extend the quality of our lives. However, because of it’s justified and rigorous adherence to the scientific method¹, ancient knowledge pertaining to experience and consciousness have been marginalized and relegated to the sidelines of scientific discourse. Specifically religion whose  function in part was to direct, train and systematically expand not only our individual consciousness but our collective consciousness. Only now is science beginning to tackle the question of consciousness. By combining empirical and experiential data, science is making inroads into this realm. The exploration of consciousness is an interdisciplinary field consisting artificial intelligence, psychology, neurophysiology and many more. To this list, religion viewed through the lens of a cultural anthropologist should constitute an important sub field in the scientific exploration of consciousness. Practices and traditions that have co-evolved with humanity hold the key to expanding not only our understanding of  consciousness but consciousness itself.

Notes:

¹Experiential data is subjective in nature and the scientific method mandates objective means of measuring experimental data. However by combining empirical data such as from fMRI and subjective data such as asking what the subject was thinking during a fMRI session,  it becomes possible to conduct experiments in an objective manner that is consistent with the scientific methodology.
