Description:

The Power of Sleep

 

Dr. Tim Royer, PsyD, is a Michigan-based neuroscientist who has worked with some of the world’s top performers including NBA All Stars, NFL standouts, bestselling authors and C-suite executives from across the nation. Performing at a high of a level can take a toll on the body and the mind. According to Dr. Royer, there is one thing that puts top performers at a level above everyone else – sleep. Seems too simple to be true, but talk to Dr. Royer and you’ll see the science behind it.

Top performers get AT LEAST nine hours of sleep every night, and for example, in Roger Federer’s case, he gets upwards of 12 hours of sleep per night. It’s no wonder he’s been at the pinnacle of tennis for so many years. If the brain doesn’t receive the optimal amount of rest and recharging, the body can’t perform at an optimal level.

Dr. Royer is a renowned psychologist best known for fusing foundational insights of psychology together with state-of-the art technology and clinical measurements to assess and optimize brain performance. Royer’s vision of brain optimization is revolutionizing the way individuals train their minds for maximum performance. If …

Who/what is to blame? Can anyone blame Tesla for including all the kill switches necessary to avoid this…except the one that can stop a young man from doing something deadly?

Podcast 1651: Eyes Wide Open- Predictions 2017

Description:

Imagine the holiday table set with in-laws and outlaws, all talking at once while quieter voices are trying to get the macaroni and cheese or turkey passed before Cousin Ralph (the skinny one with the hollow leg) eats it all.  There…you have some idea of what it was like to get our Internet Advisors (minus Shane who had a real family gathering to attend) together to talk about their predictions for 2017.  A heck of a lot of fun and opposing views of important topics but NEVER a dull moment.

So I am going to plead the 5th and just post the whole, unedited (except for breaks) podcast for your entertainment purposes.  Hopefully my stay in the hospital starting later today will actually give me time to post the individual segments for your listening pleasure.  The real truth is that it was almost impossible to divide the in studio conversations into neat segments.  The phone ins were another matter and were easier to edit.  Sooo, patience my friends and fans, by Sept. 4 late, I hope to have all the individual segments separated for you.  Until then, enjoy this raucous look into 2017 with my good friends and your tech

This week's podcast was a perfect storm of mistakes!

Due to circumstances well beyond our control, this podcast was not edited and posted until Monday night, Oct 10! Everything from a failed macOS Sierra install to doctor’s appointments and a Sunday with three full meetings conspired to delay the release of this great show.

BUT there was a silver lining to the show.  Ed, Cal and Foster got to do a real live podcast! ie. they got to take their time discussing a variety of topics and bantering back and forth with their opinions.  Normally we bring you guest commentators on subjects and let them be the focus while our tech experts, along with Gary and Foster, question them about topic. We felt it was high time that you got to enjoy the quick wit and broad experience of our two top tech experts.  So we hope that you enjoy this special edition of the Internet Advisor.

Saturday, Oct. 15 we will return to our normal pattern of inviting guest hosts and experts on various topics in our first hour and focusing on your question in the second hour with Ed and Cal taking the podium.  We will be
