Buddhism and the art of brain science


BUDDHISM AND BRAIN SCIENCE
BUDDHISM AND BRAIN SCIENCE
In October 2004, neuroscientist Fred Gage took a leap of faith and flew to India to present a lecture to Tenzin Gyatso, the current Dalai Lama. The religious leader had asked him to participate in a workshop on brain science at his compound in Dharamsala, in the foothills of the Himalayas. The Dalai Lama wanted to learn more about Gage's explorations at the Salk Institute in San Diego into the adult brain's ability to generate new cells.

As the spiritual leader of Buddhism, the Dalai Lama was intrigued that scientists had found evidence that some parts of the brain might renew themselves throughout life.

This Immigration Thing?


This national dialog that is upon us about immigration and undocumented workers got me to thinking. My paternal grandparents, Dennis and Nellie Dennehy immigrated, legally, from County Cork, Ireland, Millstreet town. I loved their brogue. I’m not sure exactly when they came but they settled in Bridgeport, Connecticut around 1910. They had one son, my dad, Edward. Grandpa was a shop steward for Jenkins valves, Bridgeport. He would regale my brothers and I with stories of the “old sod” and how he came to America.

FIGHTING WORDS
FIGHTING WORDS
Early this year, an amateur scholar named Paul J.J. Payack made a reckless, some would say offensive, announcement. By the end of 2006, he claimed, the English language will acquire its 1 millionth word.

This assertion shot like a comet across the world's newsrooms. National Public Radio, CNN, the Sunday Times of London, the People's Daily, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. pounced. Their stories were whimsical, playful, fun.

Get Up and Go!

The benefits of regular physical activity are overwhelmingly positive for everyone, but even so most Americans, including men, women and young people, fail to get enough exercise. Thirty minutes of moderate intensity exercise done five days a week substantially reduces the risk of dying from coronary heart disease which is now the nation’s leading cause of death. Physical activity can also decrease the risk for stroke, colon cancer, Type 2 Diabetes and high blood pressure. In addition, exercise may help you to lower cholesterol, control and maintain a healthy body weight, assist in the maintenance and development of healthy joints and bones, promote psychological well being and reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.
