The Titan’s of Aging - Elworthy, Polk, Sinclair, Caro

The Titan’s of Aging - Elworthy, Polk, Sinclair, Caro

July 12, 2019

SO I’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THE CONVERSATION **THAT WE DID NOT HAVE THE OTHER NIGHT** AND THE DINNER **THAT BILLY DID NOT COOK THE OTHER NIGHT-** WHAT WE DID THO - WAS GO OUT TO ONE OF THE LOCAL CHAIN RESTAURANTS, ALBEIT ONE OF THE BETTER ONES TO HAVE A HAMBURGER.

IT WAS KINDA NICE TO HAVE THAT BREAK FROM ALL THAT GOURMET COOKING - ADMIRING BILLS TECHNIQUE IN CREATING OUTSTANDING MEALS, SOME OF WHICH ARE ORIGINAL, SOME OF WHICH ARE JUST BETTER VERSIONS OF THE ONES WE HAVE IN RESTAURANTS.

BUT I DIGRESS.

IT WAS WHILE EATING THE HAMBURGER THAT I WAS EAVESDROPPING AMONG THE GUESTS SITTING AROUND US WHEN I OVERHEARD AN INTERESTING CONVERSATION

ONE MORE SENIOR WOMAN COMPLAINED THAT SHE HADN’T DONE HER MAKEUP, AND THE GENTLEMEN SITTING ACROSS FROM HER ( I CAN ONLY ASSUME THAT WAS HER HUSBAND SAID “SARAH, WHAT DO YOU NEED MAKEUP FOR - WHO ARE YOU TRYING TO ATTRACT AT YOUR AGE.

AT WHICH TIME THE OTHER WOMAN AT THE TABLE SAID. WELL HONEY YOU ARE LUCKY - AT YOUR AGE YOU ARE FREE NOW, YOU DON’T NEED MAKEUP ANYMORE.

AT WHICH TIME SARAH SAID - ITS NOT THE MAKEUP, BUT THE FACT THAT I FORGOT TO PUT IT ON.

THERE WERE SO MANY THINGS TO UNPACK IN THAT CONVERSATION - VANITY, AGING, BRAIN FUNCTION - SO I THOUGHT I’D SEARCH OUT SOME TRULY REMARKABLE PEOPLE TO ADDRESS MANY OF THOSE ISSUES.

SO THAT’S WHAT WE’LL YAK ABOUT TODAY.

Let’s face it people in western society are vain. Looking good is almost mandatory. You walk down the street in the big cities and they are teaming with fit, well clothed people with skin that is silky smooth.

But often you see some men and woman, looking a bit disheveled, glasses held up by the tip of the nose. no makeup (not homeless) I just assume that they are intellectuals, professors, scientists etc. WHO DON’T FALL INTO SOCIETIES EXPECTATIONS ON BEAUTY

I’ve always wondered what do those people think about Vanity. So I went and searched out someone who could give us a point of view of what the cost of vanity is.

e often talk about memory loss as we age. We’ve learned the tricks to help us out. Just ask Brad Zupp, our memory athlete. As a result, common wisdom says that age isn’t too kind to our minds abilities. But can iT brain actually be improving as we age. So why not look for someone who can explain it.

Our brains are powerful pieces of machinery that give us the capacity to do amazing things. Unfortunately, common wisdom says that age isn’t too kind to our minds’ abilities. Neuroscientist Thad Polk walks through the actual effects of aging on the human brain and shows that our assumptions might not be so accurate.
Dr. Thad Polk has been a member of the University of Michigan psychology faculty since 1996. he was named an Arthur F. Thurnau Professor in recognition of outstanding contributions to undergraduate education, and in 2012 Princeton Review included him on its list of the Best 300 Professors in the US.

hile we are speaking of aging. You constantly here that there is research being done that will slow down the aging process or halt it altogether - God forbid you have to live with that difficult family member forever.

I tried to find someone who can explain in simple terms - what research is being done to slow down the aging process.

I want to thank our sponsor for making Yak About Today possible AND THE NUMBER ONE TALK RADIO STATION IN OUR MARKET. We couldn’t do half of what we do without them. But that wouldn’t mean much if we didn’t believe in them. To my mind and many others they are simply the best practice to go to for both prevention as well as more serious eye conditions. So like i always say - go see Drs. Minotti Rhinehour, tate and o’brien because i wouldn’t trust my eyes to anyone else

May 20 2019 - when did I get old

May 18, 2019

Hey thanks for listening. David here and I’ve been thinking about the conversation we had last night at dinner. And while i’m at it, The dinner consisted of a garlic and balsamic marinated skirt steak on the grill with grilled summer squash, zucchini, onions. A great butter leaf salad and a double chocolate cake that bill made for desert.

Once again we found ourselves telling stories about getting older and of course the question keeps coming up “at what point did we realize we were old.

Robert Thor, Lou Pearlman- Scandal and The Boybands

Robert Thor, Lou Pearlman- Scandal and The Boybands

April 13, 2019

Robert Thor had no idea what a strange journey his life would be. Born into a loving family in the heart of the Bronx, New York, then moving to the Gulf Coast of Florida, Robert enjoyed a happy and nearly charmed life. His deeply religious upbringing gave him the strength to weather any storm; that is until he and his wife were introduced to famous, flamboyant, and friendly Lou Pearlman, the ultimate con man in disguise.

Lou is best known for his creation of the iconic 1990’s boy bands, NSYNC, and The Backstreet Boys. What people didn’t know was that Lou created an international Ponzi scheme to fund these popular musical endeavors. When this carefully built house of cards fell, Pearlman’s unsuspecting investors lost nearly a half a billion dollars. 

This book chronicles Robert Thor’s idyllic family life and his near rags to riches story. Discover how his reputation and carefully developed career came tumbling down when he was unwittingly embroiled in one of the largest Ponzi schemes in American history. Central to Lou Pearlman’s takedown to justice, Robert lost in ways he never imagined.

What is Empathy and Where has it gone? Yakir Speaks with Minter Dial about his book Heartificial Empathy

What is Empathy and Where has it gone? Yakir Speaks with Minter Dial about his book Heartificial Empathy

April 3, 2019

Welcome to yak about today, I’m david yakir and i’ve been thinking. I’ve been thinking about empathy. Theres been a great deal of talk about how the current occupier of the white house lacks empathy. I’m not sure many people know what that means. When Bill Clinton said “I feel your pain” was that an example of empathy.

There are many definitions of empathy that encompass a broad range of emotional states, but basically it is our capacity to understand or feel what another person is experiencing.

What role does empathy play in today’s modern society? What is the role of empathy in business.

I’ve invited Minter dial, whose new book Heartificial Empathy answers many of those questions. So that’s what we’ll yak about today.

152 I’ve Been Thinking About The New Year and WHAT Yak About Today Should Be - A SOLO SHOW

152 I’ve Been Thinking About The New Year and WHAT Yak About Today Should Be - A SOLO SHOW

January 29, 2019

Thanks for joining us. I’m David yakir and you are listening to yak about today. And as always - I’ve been thinkin.

So, that’s what we’ll yak about today.

So my friends you must have noticed that at the beginning of the show I didn’t say i’ve been thinking about a particular topic or we had a guest interview.

Nope, I’ve just been thinking.

You see, every year or so - usually around New Years, I re-evaluate the show. try to find ways to improve the show. Get the feedback. Look at the shows that work - and those that don’t.

Also, I look at the emails and tweets that have recommendations.

And by the way, I enjoy the emails, tweets that are complimentary. The criticisms - well not so much - but they are teaching moments I guess.

and as you all know much of the communications that we in the media receive these days are over the top and extreme at times. The compliments can almost make you feel godly. And some of the criticisms are either borderline hate mail or somewhat threatening.

It used to be that the majority of the hate mail was gay related. That has been surpassed by some very strong opinions about politics.

But as most of you know, This show has been always dedicated to the wiser and more mature of us, covering topic that may be helpful as we age, From technology to health and nutrition - finances, employment opportunities - learning to be an entrepreneur or even how to improve your memory. And at times the arts.

And as you know and hear every week at the beginning of the show, we say if you are familiar with the years 46 to 64 than this is the place you want to be.

But that only works if we are covering the topics that are important to you or have conversations that you relate to.

I always ask this time of year for you to email me or tweet me with your suggestions for topics and conversations that you’re interested in. The more i receive the better the show is.

Sending in your thoughts and ideas allows me to book guests that would be of interest to you.

So, why not take a stab at writing me at yakabouttoday@gmail.com or tweet me at yakabouttoday. And tell me how i can make this show better for you.

So what do we have planned for this season.

Number one, later this season we will be using using a new platform called Spreaker which will allow us to broadcast live over several of the social media platforms.

In addition we are setting up a system where we can take live phone calls live on air.

In addition, when appropriate we will broadcast the show with video when we think the show will benefit more when you can see it. (and of course that will allow you to see my pretty face.)

-------
Over the next few months, the team will be developing a new podcast tentatively titled Yak’s Tales.

A biographical podcast where everyone will get to tell the stories that made them who they are today.

We will tell you more as we develop the concept.

Ok, since we don’t have any quests lined up for today, why don’t we rifle through our notes and see if we can find anything of interest for you.

And even though I didn’t schedule a question and answer session today. Something came across my desk yesterday that i thought was interesting enough to chat about.

A listener from Scotland, who is one of my favorite podcasters asked a question - well not so much a question as a statement.

He said - you should have more mental health professionals - some shrinks, therapists - psychiatrists on your show. Maybe you’ll get more insight into what’s going on with - as you say - the wiser and more mature of us.

Well - here’s my story that I’ll share with you.

# How Exercise May Help Keep Our Memory
January 16, 2019 04:00 AM
Irisin, a hormone that is released during exercise, may improve brain health and lessen the damage that occurs during Alzheimer’s disease.

The study, which was [published this month in Nature Medicine](https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-018-0275-4) , involved mice, but its findings could help to explain how, at a molecular level, exercise protects our brains and possibly preserves memory and thinking skills, even in people whose pasts are fading.
Considerable scientific evidence already demonstrates that [exercise remodels brains and affects thinking](https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/04/well/move/for-your-brains-sake-keep-moving.html?module=inline) . Researchers have shown in rats and mice that running ramps up the creation of new brain cells in the hippocampus, a portion of the brain devoted to memory formation and storage. Exercise also can [improve the health and function of the synapses between neurons there](https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/21/well/move/how-exercise-may-help-the-memory-grow-stronger.html?module=inline) , allowing brain cells to better communicate.

NOW, WHAT WAS THAT STORY I JUST DID.

So now the overarching lesson of the study would seem to be that “If you can, go for a walk.

THANKS TO GRETCHEN REYNOLDS AND THE NEW YORK TIMES.

AM I OLD

there was an article in the New York Times that i found interesting and thought I should share with you. Its the December 13 2018 issue and its entitled “Am I old” This more or less is an extension of exercise can help with memory.

There was a speech given by the philanthropist David Rubenstein that urged more senior people to accelerate” as they entered the next chapter of their lives.

He said Pick up the pace? Because he saw that So many of my contemporaries are stopping — if not stooping — to smell the roses.

When he was asked if he considers himself old, Mr. Rubenstein, now 69 said “69 seems like a teenager to me. At the same time, when he asked the same of a 68 year old poet, who was inbetween surgeries to help her mend after a fall, said point blank, I am an old lady.

What makes one more mature person identify as old when another doesn’t?

And what is “old” anyway.

So old” is changing, as life spans have grown longer. “Someone who is 60 years old today is considered middle-aged,”

So when does old begin?

Dr. Scherbov says that for Americans, it’s roughly 70 to 71 for men and 73 to 74 for women, though, as he has written, “your true age is not just the number of years you have lived.

“The main idea of the project,” “is that an old age threshold should not be fixed but depend on the characteristics of people.” Factors such as life expectancy, personal health, cognitive function and disability rates all play a role, he said, and today’s 65-year-old is more like a 55-year-old from 45 years ago.

Another comparison is that As with beauty, the meaning of “old” also depends on the person you ask. Millennials, now in their 20s and 30s, say that old starts at 59,

Gen Xers, now in their 40s — and no doubt with a new appreciation for just how close they are to entering their 50s — say 65 is the onset of old.

Boomers and the Greatest Generation pegged 73 as the beginning of old. Clearly, much depends on the perspective of who’s being asking to define “old.”

When asking several 50+ friends. There were Dozens of responses, But the most fun ones were their current age plus 4

And of course the most well know replies that are difficult to hear is when you are called ma’am instead of miss and when a man is referred to as sir.

As for me, My brain and the mirror are always in conflict. “Am I young or am I old.

Here’s a tech piece that caught even me by surprise and that is that some states are okaying digital license plates.

So far they are allowed in California, Arizona and Michigan.

digital license plates consist of displays covered in glass that are mounted onto a frame. They come with their own computer chips and wireless communication systems.

They are saying that Some of the benefits of using digital licenses versus old metal ones are the ability to display Amber alerts or stolen vehicle messages when needed, but they could also make it easier to digitally renew license plates over the years. But they are expensive and comes at a price, Currently, they cost $499 for a basic version, and $799 for a premium version that features a GPS navigation add-on.———

I’m so glad they are finally getting rid of that thing call Privacy.

I want to give you guys a three month update on my switch from cable tv to Youtube TV

I couldn’t be more happy. The benefits of moving to an internet based TV system are even more than i had previously thought.

A side note. I’m not speaking about Netflix or Hulu or Amazon Prime. I’m talking about a cable replacement.

Having said that, Let me tell you the benefits.

Youtube TV is an app that is downloaded to a roku device, or an apple tv.

First, you have to switch your thinking from the way cable tv works to more of a way netflix works.

Better picture quality - 1080p and 4k are better than that of cable tv - especially since 4k is not available with cable.

Most of the cable replacements allows you to run on multiple tv’s and devices without adding extra cost for every tv.

I love the interface for youtube tv which always seems to remember what i watch and when i watch it.

The recording of tv shows is slightly different and in my mind much better. On cable tv you pick you show to record and it records.

In youtube tv, you ad a plus sign to the shows you want to put in your library and next thing you know that programs is always in your library and will be there for a year - and also you have unlimited space.

In addition youtube tv seems to have all the sports stations including tennis - yay_ without the extra cost.

The cost of all of this is.

Xfiinity Cable blast internet is 59.00 plus 41 dollars - tax lncluded

That’s 100 dollars for three tv’s and all our computers, iPad, iPhones etc.

its a win win win.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

151 From Quito Ecuador, Marcel Perkins Takes us on a Tour of Peru and Equador

151 From Quito Ecuador, Marcel Perkins Takes us on a Tour of Peru and Equador

December 30, 2018

Marcel likes to highlight companies doing a superlative job in Latin America for upscale travelers. Sometimes you may not have heard of these companies because they’re “inbound” tour companies. You contact someone to book a Galapagos tour, for instance, and a company like Latin Trails is the one actually taking care of you on the ground the whole time. We hit up experienced tour planner Marcel Perkins, who is general manager of that company, for advice on traveling in South America.

How did Latin Trails get its start and where do you operate tours in South America?

Latin Trails started as an extension of a lifelong passion of traveling throughout Latin America. My first trip to Ecuador took place when I was less than a year old. Eventually my parents decided to move from New Jersey (USA) to Quito when I was 7. We kept our U.S. ties but Latin America turned out to be our playground. We traveled the entire continent several times and helped hundreds of visitors organize their trips, and sometimes we led them as well. I decided to give the business a formal turn in 2002 and Latin Trails started as an Ecuador based destination management company.

Today we offer custom trips throughout Ecuador and Peru for travelers who search for private services, customized itineraries, and a 24/7 concierge service for a worry-free trip. To compliment these services we operate 2two boutique yachts in the Galapagos Islands: The Galapagos Sea Star Journey and The Galapagos Seaman Journey. We also run trips on an Amazon riverboat out of Iquitos: The Cattleya for eight passengers. We’ll soon be adding another ship there, Spondias. In Ecuador we will be adding a luxury boutique hotel in Quito for 2017.
