Good Leaders Have Different Brain Waves

Good leaders have different brain waves
New research using details about people's lives as well as measuring particular output using electroencephalography (EEG), has led researchers to believe that good leaders have different brain waves than others.  


This is important because in the past, we have thought that the reasons were solely based on psychology. 


However, studies still show that listening to classical music does have positive effects on the brain. 


This fact alone, should still remind us that we must nurture our children properly and not turn them over to video games and television sets to be entertained. 


Regardless of brain wave activity, the proper atmosphere can enhance a person's mental, physical and spiritual well-being.


As parents, we all want to do what we can to ensure that our children are those of whom this study speaks. If good leaders have different brain waves, then we want to contribute to helping our children have those particular brain waves. 


Leaders are usually achievers, which brings them back into the cycle of leadership and accomplishing great goals. The feelings of success and accomplishment appear to be great motivators. This fact gives parents a greater responsibility to explore many areas of interest that might spark a flame of inspiration in their child. 


Interestingly, but not surprisingly, transcendental meditation seems to increase these factors in the brains of those who practice meditation regularly. 


Quiet time is so rare these days. I believe that when the Old Testament of the Bible stated in Psalm 46.10: "Be still and know that I am God," that the most important concept he was trying to convey was to be still. Be still physically, mentally and spiritually. 


Be still and allow, be still and know, be still and be well.


Perhaps more children should be exposed to Yoga, martial arts, and contemplative prayer. Writing in a journal every night might be another way to help children make sense of the world around them, as well as help them unwind from the daily stress and prepare them for a good night's sleep. 


Below is a quote from the website with the details on the study. You can read more about how they concluded that good leaders have different brain waves at the link below.


The researchers have developed a new theory, a Unified Theory of Performance, which suggests that higher levels of mind-brain development form a platform for higher performance, regardless of profession or activity. http://preventdisease.com/news/12/062012_First-Study-To-Show-Brain-Measurement-To-Effective-Leadership.shtml

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

You can also learn more about the Zika virus from the Centers for Disease Control atCDC.gov/zika/.

Each state should also provide information. The link for South Carolina is SCDHEC.gov/, which provides useful information on symptoms, transmission and prevention.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.




How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
