The Maverick of Brain Optimization | The Blog of Author Tim Ferriss

I listen to your podcasts on my iPhone during my drive to and from work. I also take all my breaks and lunches in my vehicle so I can listen to them. While I find most of them fascinating, for me this one has been the most intriguing and interesting of them all so far. I wish you could have seen my eyes light up when Dr. Gazzaley mentioned the Foundation series of books by Issac Asimov. I too have read and reread those books. As I have aged they have taken on new meaning and perspective. Gordon R Dickson’s Dorsai/Childe series of books were another favorite. I also was a bio/chemistry major in college until love wrecked my then academic life and I left school to pursue the woman of my dreams. When I eventually came to my senses and renewed my education, I left my passion behind and began taking business courses. Now, late in life, I realize I locked myself into a passionless relationship with the corporate world. Though it’s too late to alter that particular course, I am working to change what the final years remaining to me will look like, and this podcast may just be one of those transformational moments that you both spoke of. And, yes, I am afraid of losing my cognitive abilities as I continue with this aging process. I am working on limiting that loss by improving my overall physical health through eating a paleo/natural whole food inspired diet, exercise and improving my gut health so I can properly absorb the nutrients I need. Also studying mitochondria and ATP production for bioenergetic needs and what I need to promote improvement there. I take a regimen of resveratrol, PQQ and CoQ10 along with other supplements to attempt to improve mitochondrial health. Looking all the time for new and better information for brain health. Big thank-you to you and Dr. Gazzaley for this incredible podcast. Looking forward to the day when he and his team release some of those games to the general public.

The Censorship of Stand-Up Comedy on College Campuses

A young gay man with a Broadway background named Kevin Yee sang novelty songs about his life, producing a delirium of affection from the audience. “We love you, Kevin!” a group of kids yelled between numbers. He invited students to the front of the auditorium for a “gay dance party,” and they charged down to take part. His last song, about the close relationship that can develop between a gay man and his “sassy black friend,” was a killer closer; the kids roared in delight, and several African American young women in the crowd seemed to be self-identifying as sassy black friends. I assumed Yee would soon be barnstorming the country. But afterward, two white students from an Iowa college shook their heads: no. He was “perpetuating stereotypes,” one of them said, firmly. “We’re a very forward-thinking school,” she told me. “That thing about the ‘sassy black friend’? That wouldn’t work for us.” Many others, apparently, felt the same way: Yee ended up with 18 bookings—a respectable showing, but hardly a reflection of the excitement in the room when he performed.

Vale Tudo Relics: The Life and Times of Helio Gracie - Eternal Impact

Considered one of the most influential figures in martial arts history, Helio Gracie, the father of modern jiu-jitsu died at the age of 95 in 2009. He would be 102 years old if he were alive today. Andre Lazaroni, a state deputy in Rio de Janeiro, paid homage to Gracie by naming his birthday, Oct. 1, as Vale Tudo Day in the city. A ceremony was held at Tiradentes Palace, with many fighters in attendance, including Gracie’s top student, Joao Alberto Barreto. MMA, UFC and BJJ: Those acronyms would not exist in their current forms if it were not for the perseverance of Helio and his older brother, Carlos Gracie. Thanks to them, the martial art that was brought to Brazil from Japan by Mitsuyo Maeda Koma was preserved and later transformed into what we now know as vale tudo or mixed martial arts. Martial Arts: Religion, Philosophy or Way of Life? The Gracie brothers became obsessed with the art they had been taught by Koma and created a life philosophy based on nutrition, health and furthering jiu-jitsu. To achieve this, they adopted strict rules for themselves, and they followed them until their last days.

Opinion: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the UFC Model

The beauty of UFC’s model is easily explainable with Rizin's recent headlines. | Photo: Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com Editor's note: The views & opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. For mixed martial arts fans who were around before “The Ultimate Fighter,” Pride Fighting Championships still holds a special place in the heart. The elaborate sets, loaded tournaments and larger-than-life figures from 10 years ago often resonate in the mind better than last weekend’s Ultimate Fighting Championship card. The natural human inclination towards nostalgia, however, often makes us overlook the flaws and downsides of the past while taking for granted the greatness of the present. That’s not to say Pride wasn’t a tremendous promotion that offered up many of the sport’s most iconic and memorable moments. It’s just that UFC’s approach to matchmaking has become so entrenched that we overlook how much more conducive it is to getting the best possible matchups.

ONE fighter relates harrowing tale of medical neglect after KO loss

He was given a "fast check out" by a ONE doctor who was a "little lost with the situation." His cornermen decided to send him to the hospital. One of the promotion's Liaison Officers (known as LOs) arranged an ambulance, which eventually delivered the battered fighter to a public hospital.

Kickboxing: Glory 25 Lineup Finalized for Nov. 6 in Italy

Robin van Roosmalen returns next month. | Photo: James Law/Glory Kickboxing organization Glory has finalized its next event, Glory 25, which will be headlined by a lightweight title fight between champion Robin van Roosmalen and Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong on Nov. 6 in Monza, Italy. Returning lightweight legend Giorgio Petrosyan (81-2-1, 36 KOs) and rising star Josh Jauncey (23-5, 12 KOs) meet in the co-headline bout. For the first time in the company’s history, one of its world titles will be at stake during the “Super Fight Series” of the event, which serves as the precursor to the main card. Featherweight champ Gabriel Varga (26-2, 8 KOs) will defend his crown against Dutch-based Ukrainian Serhiy Adamchuk (30-5, 14 KOs). The two combatants were originally slated to duel in September, but Varga suffered an injury during training that postponed the battle. While Varga healed, Adamchuk stayed busy by toppling muay Thai champion Anvar Boynazarov. Filling out the Glory 25 main card is a one-night, four-man welterweight contender tournament with championship implications.

"About 1 year ago, Sakakibara called me, but I didn't take it seriously. I don't believe in such projects. Look, I have a company and many contracts with television. How we will share this? Who will own all of this? Should I keep it, or Japanese will take it from me, or will we cut it somehow? And what if I have already obligations to some Japanese TV-channel? I don't even understand the concept. Who will pay for all of this? Who will have rights and copyright? I think this is a utopia from the very beginning."

Rothwell pulled from UFC Dublin after Miocic injury

As often as not, that's been enough time for the world's largest MMA promotion to find a fitting replacement for a fighter, but in this case, it was always going to be a difficult task. Even with offers from fighters on the table, the fact that the fight card is not in the US means that whoever they got to fill in would have to already have an EU visa in order. Especially in a thin division like heavyweight, there just aren't that many options, and no guarantee that the few fighters that fit the bill would be in any place to step into the cage on short notice.
