That motorcycle just came out of nowhere! How often have you had that experience? There is actually a fascinating reason why drivers in cars have such a hard time seeing and avoiding motorcycles. I’ll explain what it is and what you can do about it.
Plus, taking care of your brain. You may have thought your brain pretty much takes care of itself but what you do and how you act can have a real impact on brain health – sometimes in the strangest ways. Here to discuss that is Dr. Daniel Siegel, professor of psychiatry at the UCLA and author of several books including The Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology.
And if you love cheese – you are going to hate hearing this. Dr. Neal Barnard, professor of medicine at George Washington University and author of The Cheese Trap is going to explain how cheese is addicting, fattening and causes all sorts of problems. Vegan cheese anyone?
And if you want to improve the quality of your writing, try typing with one hand. I’ll explain why and how it works.
