Micah Raskin Discusses the Psychological and Physical Benefits of Gardening

Micah Raskin

Micah Raskin

NASSAU COUNTY, NY, USA, July 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Micah Raskin, a professional poker player and local philanthropist, loves to garden. “You wouldn’t think it to look at me,” laughs Raskin, “but it’s a passion of mine. I love to be outside, and I love to watch things grow. There are few things more satisfying than nurturing life in the quiet of nature.”

And other than putting delicious veggies and fruits on the table or decorating your home with lovely flowers, gardening offers a variety of benefits both physical and mental for those who enjoy it.

Get Your Vitamin D With Gardening Says Micah Raskin

Vitamin D increases levels of calcium in your body, which helps your immune system function better and makes your bones stronger. Studies have found that exposure to sunlight increases vitamin D levels in adults, and gardening is – usually – an outdoor, daylight activity.

“Being outside always gives my mood an instant boost,” says Micah Raskin. “And when you live in New York City, a little extra greenery and sunlight can keep you sane.” Just don’t forget to wear sunscreen and sunglasses so you don’t damage your skin or your eyes!

Gardening Decreases Your Risk of Dementia Says Micah Raskin

A study from 2006 found that gardening lowers your risk of dementia by 36%. More than 2,800 people over the age of 60 were tracked by researchers for 16 years. The study concluded that physical activity – and gardening in particular – reduced the risk of developing dementia in future years.

“It doesn’t surprise me a bit,” says Micah Raskin. “When you’re gardening, your mind is at rest – you’re much more mindful of your surroundings and your actions. I know mindfulness and meditation are also recommended to stave off dementia. Gardening is my favorite form of meditation.”

Micah Raskin Says Gardening is Great Exercise

“Obviously there are all kinds of gardens,” says Micah Raskin. “But no matter how large or small your garden is, you’re going to have to do a little physical labor to take care of it.”

From lifting bags of soil to bending over and reaching to weed, gardening is a surprisingly physical activity for most people. You may not even realize that you’re breaking a sweat as you become absorbed in what you’re doing says Micah Raskin, a long-time gardener.

“Pulling weeds, hoeing the ground, digging holes, lifting tools and plants, bending and twisting to reach – it’s all really great exercise. You may not realize it at the time, but you’ll be able to tell you were exercising when you wake up in the morning,” chuckles Micah Raskin. Gardening can work new muscles and help improve your stamina, flexibility, and strength.

Bookcover: Outsmart Your Brain, The Insider's Guide to Life-long Memory

Outsmart Your Brain, The Insider’s Guide to Life-long Memory

Latest research from Affirmativ Health succeeds in treating cognitive decline using personalized, precision medicine.

The findings, published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease Reports (Journal of Alzheimer's Disease Reports 4(1)), are encouraging and indicate that a more extensive clinical study is warranted.”

— Brian K Kennedy, PhD

SONOMA, CA, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Affirmativ Health sought to determine whether a comprehensive and personalized program, designed to mitigate risk factors of Alzheimer’s disease could improve cognitive and metabolic function in individuals experiencing cognitive decline. Findings provided evidence that this approach can improve risk factor scores and stabilize cognitive function.

Cognitive decline is a major concern of the aging population. Already, Alzheimer’s disease affects approximately 5.4 million Americans and 30 million people globally. Without effective prevention and treatment, the prospects for the future are bleak. By 2050, it is estimated that 160 million people globally will have the disease, including 13 million Americans, leading to potential bankruptcy of the Medicare system. Unlike several other chronic illnesses, Alzheimer’s disease is on the rise–recent estimates suggest that Alzheimer’s disease has become the third leading cause of death in the United States behind cardiovascular disease and cancer. Since its first description over 100 years ago, Alzheimer’s disease has been without effective treatment. While researchers continue to seek out a cure, it is becoming clear that there are effective treatment options. More and more research supports the conclusion that Alzheimer’s disease is not a disease of only Beta Amyloid plaques and Tao tangles but a complex and systemic disease. In this study of patients with varying levels of cognitive decline, it is demonstrated how a precision and personalized approach results in either stabilization or improvement in memory.

Interventions to stop the progression of Alzheimer’s disease have been marginally successful at best. This study uses a more comprehensive, personalized approach addressing each participant’s unique risk factors. “The findings, published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease Reports (Journal of Alzheimer's Disease Reports 4(1)), are encouraging and indicate that a more extensive clinical study is warranted", said Brian Kennedy, PhD, Director of The Centre for Healthy Aging, National University Health System, Singapore and Chief Scientific Officer, Affirmativ Health.

The Affirmativ Health scientific team, after thorough review of published research, has developed a comprehensive approach to addressing scientifically supported risk factors that have been rigorously defined as interventions to promote prevention, increased resiliency, and stabilization of brain function in the realm of AD and dementia. Utilizing cutting edge technology in concert with in-person coaching and consultation, we are demonstrating that a multi-modal and personalized approach promotes an improved resiliency and restoration of optimal brain function. The personalized therapeutic program includes genetics, an extensive blood panel, medical history, and lifestyle data to evaluate relevant metabolic risk factors and nutrient levels associated with cognitive health. "Target laboratory levels differ from standard laboratory ranges as the goal is to reach optimized levels for cognitive health", Ginger Schechter, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Affirmativ Health

The study approach considers more than 35 factors known to contribute to cognitive decline. Results demonstrate that certain of those factors are more affected than others again demonstrating the need for a more precise treatment plan. "This study supports the need for an approach that focuses on a one-size fits one, not a one-size fits all, approach that comprehensively assesses all involved risk factors affecting memory loss", Denise M Kalos, CEO Affirmativ Health

In conjunction with the publication of this vital study, and to expose alternative treatment options for Alzheimer’s disease and cognitive decline, the team at Affirmativ Health has written a book, Outsmart your Brain – an Insider's Guide to Life-Long Memory. “Memory is not something that should diminish with age; you are never too young to start developing healthy habits that can ultimately impact your cognition,” Outsmart Your Brain. This book leverages the foundation of Affirmativ Health's research to deliver a tips and tools guide for the maintenance of good cognitive health. "Far too few people understand how critical lifestyle and dietary choices are for brain function. ‘Outsmart Your Brain’ is an important tool to get this information into the hands of those who should know it, everyone!, in easy-to-understand language", Ryan R. Fortna, MD, PhD, Chief Medical/Scientific Officer, ADx Healthcare.

ABOUT AFFIRMATIV HEALTH: Four years ago, Affirmativ Health was the first to bring the latest health-conscious science to those living with or at risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. By taking a personalized medicine approach, we address an individual’s unique, modifiable medical and lifestyle risk factors tom improve cognition. Affirmativ Health empowers people with the information necessary to take control of their cognitive health. If you are looking for hope that is based in science, please reach out. https://affirmativhealth.com/

A centerpiece of EBRAINS’ human brain atlas is presented in “Science”

Brain Atlas

A probability map for the location of the frontal pole in the brain. (Red indicates high probability and low variability.)

EBRAINS Infrastructure

Overview of the digital EBRAINS research infrastructure with offers for science and industry.

Katrin Amunts, Neuroscientist

Prof. Katrin Amunts is the Scientific Research Director of the Human Brain Project, Director of the Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine at Forschungszentrum Juelich and Professor of Brain Research at University of Duesseldorf in Germany

"Julich-Brain" is the name of the first 3D-atlas of the human brain that reflects the variability of the brain’s structure with microscopic resolution.

JUELICH, GERMANY, July 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The atlas features close to 250 structurally distinct areas, each one based on the analysis of 10 brains. More than 24000 extremely thin brain sections were digitized, assembled in 3D and mapped by experts. As part of the new EBRAINS infrastructure of the European Human Brain Project, the atlas serves as an interface to link different information about the brain in a spatially precise way. German researchers led by Prof. Katrin Amunts have now presented the new brain atlas in the renowned journal Science.

Under the microscope, it can be seen that the human brain is not uniformly structured, but divided into clearly distinguishable areas. They differ in the distribution and density of nerve cells and in function. With the Julich-Brain, researchers led by Katrin Amunts now present the most comprehensive digital map of the cellular architecture and make it available worldwide via the EBRAINS research infrastructure.

"On the one hand, the digital brain atlas will help to interpret the results of neuroimaging studies, for example of patients, more accurately", says Katrin Amunts, Director at the German Research Center Juelich and Professor at the University of Düsseldorf. "On the other hand, it is becoming the basis for a kind of 'Google Earth' of the brain – because the cellular level is the best interface for linking data about very different facets of the brain.

A Google Earth of the Brain

In this way, the researchers are making a significant contribution to the Human Brain Project (HBP), for which the European Commission just approved 150 million Euro until 2023. "Together with many partners in this project, we are building EBRAINS as a novel high-tech research infrastructure for the neurosciences," says Amunts, who is also the Scientific Research Director of the project.

More than a quarter century of research has gone into the 3D atlas. Dozens of experts have used image analysis and mathematical algorithms to evaluate the tissue sections over the years and determine the boundaries between brain areas, which together make up a length of almost 2000 meters.

Regions vary in their difference

Mapping showed that areas vary between different brains, for example in terms of size and location. The Julich-Brain therefore displays the position and shape of individual regions as "probability maps". The researchers found particularly large differences in the Broca region, which is involved in language. In contrast, the primary visual area appeared much more uniform.

As part of EBRAINS, the Julich Brain Atlas is the starting point for bringing structure and function together. The atlas is already helping to link data on gene expression, connectivity and functional activity, for example, to better understand brain functions and the mechanisms of diseases. "EBRAINS also enables us to use the maps for simulations or to apply artificial intelligence to explore the division of labor between brain areas. The huge amounts of data generated from this are processed using the EBRAINS computing platform." The computational power comes from the new European supercomputing network FENIX, which is formed by five leading centres for High Performance Computing, including the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

Digital brain science

"It is exciting to see how far the combination of brain research and digital technologies has progressed," says Amunts. "Many of these developments converge in the Julich-Brain-Atlas and on EBRAINS. They help us – and more and more researchers worldwide – to better understand the complex organization of the brain and to jointly uncover how things are connected.”

Four students from Pune have won the Cozmo Clench competition at Techfest 2018-19 hosted by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay.

A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm or Second Law"”

— saac Asimov, I, Robot

PUNE, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, July 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The four students, Aryan Chaubal, Zyfn Kothavala, Neel Acharya and Sanjana Basavraj, were part of a team (27 member group of students of age group 10-16) from Victorious Kidss Educares, St Mary’s School and the Bishops School.

Cozmo clench competition requires the participants to complete ‘pick and place’ tasks, through an obstacle course, with their robots within six minutes. Each of these teams have to build their own unique robots to solve the problem, said a statement issued by IIT Bombay techfest team for Cozmo clench competition.

The team, which with Aryan as the captain won the competition, completed the tasks in a record time of one minute and 26 seconds and scored 464 points overall. “They won the competition by a huge margin as the team that secured the second position in the finals had completed the tasks in three minutes and were constantly practising in their IIT hostels and had a fixed strategy for each of the tasks that they were running through and kept improving throughout the three days,” said Mallick.

“This helped them improve their timings with their well-designed and robust robots which is our focus of study and where we encourage the students to build innovative instructional programmes in robotics, automation education and developing educational robots and kits,” he added.

Aryan Chaubal, Class 9 student, said, “We were a group of 4 students, all working together under the guidance of our teachers at Lydnow Robotics during our brainstorming sessions and we came up with new problems, new solutions and most importantly new ideas. But that’s the essence of brainstorming, you put anything and everything that you can think of down on paper, this way you can eradicate setbacks and furthermore create viable design ideas that you have your trust in.”

Zyfn Kothavala (13) , a student of The Bishop's School, Camp, who was also part of the team, said, “Our focus when we started was to find an optimal solution for the Cozmo Clench problem statement. We finally settled on a wired robot, with a rotating base that could place the block anywhere in a 180 degree radius. We spent about two months building it, working every Saturday from morning to evening. The benefits of the selected approach were that we moved the complexity into the remote and having a turntable gave the robot great flexibility. We were incredibly excited to hear that we had won after a thrilling and satisfying Techfest 2018.”

The students were trained by Lydnow Robotics, Pune. The teams were sent to enter the wild card round held on December 14 and 15 at IIT, Bombay. The wild card round offers on spot opportunity to participants to secure a spot in the final rounds of the competition. Generally, wild card rounds are for students and teams that are not able to participate in the zonal rounds. Wild card rounds see the most fierce competition in the entire tournament due to it do or die format.

Lydnow Robotics is a fast-growing training and consulting company in robotics and automation in Pune. Lydnow’s diversified expertise extends across the educational and industrial sectors.

Daughter Forced To Quarantine For COVID, Dad Writes A Kid’s Book?

How and Why the CoViD-19 Kid’s Book Helps Other Families was created

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Addiction Specialist, father of 3 and budding kid’s author Joshua C. Andrus was taking his daughter to the clinic 2 weeks before the schools closed down to ensure she wasn’t contagious with the flu this was back in April 2020. The next couple of weeks seemed unbelievable. She ended up quarantined. He chose to channel his energy into writing his kid’s book series. What came from the experience is easily one of the best books that every kid ages 8-14 should read relating to the Global Pandemic.

When asked about the purpose of the book called “Thriving Through CoViD-19 and Beyond” Josh said: “Originally I was told I couldn’t have my daughter for visits, I was upset and frustrated, and I got educated. I figured if this confusion was causing adults to go the extremes then the kids must be many times more confused.”

The book is fascinating, it is written in rhymes the illustrator went out of his way to make vivid pictures that virtually everyone can relate to during these “social distant” times. The book details new positive ways that can help every reader look at struggles and see advantages. The message is not controversial, it is very factual, universal, and inspires the young readers to look forward to the important jobs and challenges that are so crucial at the present.

The writer was asked about his hopes for this book: “I was frustrated I couldn’t visit with my daughter. I can relate to a lot of frustrated kids out there too. I decided utilize this book to help with their coping. It is so important to ensure we are guiding our youth by the best safest practices physically mentally and emotionally. My hope is that this book helps.” “My book series is inspired by my kid’s and our adventures together. This CoViD title fits naturally.” The author is giving away the PDF version for free with coloring pages included. https://freebook.livandgavin.com The paperback version is on amazon.

Five Towns College Ranks #3 in the Top Performers on Social Mobility in Regional Colleges in the North

Educating Creative Students Since 1972

Five Towns College Student Life on Campus

Five Towns College Aerial Dorm View

Five Towns College is serving students who need help-financially and educationally-and helping them to succeed and reach their goals!

DIX HILLS, NEW YORK, US, July 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — U.S. News & World Reports Ranks Five Towns College #3 in the Top Performers on Social Mobility in Regional Colleges in the North.

No one said it would be easy . . . but Five Towns College helps students climb up the ladder of success. What does being a “Top Performer on Social Mobility” mean? It means Five Towns College is serving students who need help-financially and educationally-and helping them to succeed and reach their goals!

This is no small task. In addition to federal and state financial aid, Five Towns College has dedicated scholarship monies to identifying and helping low-income and first-generation students gain access to a quality higher education and a college degree.

Furthermore, Five Towns College is the only private institution in Suffolk County, NY that participates in the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP). Funded in part by NYS, this program is for economically and academically disadvantaged individuals who do not meet the standards for regular enrollment. However, to give this population a chance to become a Five Towns College student, additional and supplemental mentoring and academic support is provided through HEOP. The College is very proud of its involvement in this program.

A small private institution offers lower-income and first-generation students a chance to have better learning outcomes. A caring environment, strong support system, and low faculty to student ratio create a great setting for learning and education to thrive.
