Being bilingual rewires the fundamental structure of your brain - Quartz
“Bilinguals are a really a model of cognitive control,” Pennsylvania State University cognitive scientist Judith F. Kroll told Quartz, citing bilinguals’ ability to both hold two languages in their head and expertly switch between them at the right times. [...] If you speak two languages and have ever found this task to be difficult—choosing the “right” tongue based on the context you’re in—it’s because both languages are always “on” in the brains of bilinguals, as Kroll and other cognitive scientists have seen. In other words, the brain is continually processing information in both languages.

Cholesterol and Alzheimer’s disease - YouTube
>> medical profession may come around: what is bad for your arteries and heart is bad for your brain as new research shows. cholesterol levels do play role/correlate with "Cerebral amyloid angiopathy"/beta-amyloid formation in the brain aka brain plaques. After all, its a build up of the arteries in our brain (brain consists mostly of fat) "Cerebral amyloid angiopathy is a neurological condition in which proteins called amyloid build up on the walls of the arteries in the brain. The condition increases the risk of hemorrhagic stroke and dementia." - 1.usa.gov/1MlBi6u // And prevention is better than cure because cognitive function starts to be lost early on before medical/personal detection of the condition. // LDL cholestero may be able to cross blood brain barrier. Like the leaky gut thing (induced by consumption of animal products). //

Are night shifts killing me? - BBC News
impairment of cognition, cognitive function! impaired recovery (method) for brain (and body as a whole)! It's false places vanity to claim to get over with less sleep than 6hrs. // bbc.in/1M36BE8 &! Are night shifts killing me? - bbc.in/1SG209a // hard wired to sleep at night. even organs // bbc.in/1fHEU5o - Alarm clocks may be set at 3am, but body clocks never get used to the night shift (regardless of how much sleep an individual gets). This can disrupt the rhythm of vital gene activity. Night workers are likely to sleep less and less well than those keeping daytime hours, as they try to get their shut-eye while the rest of the street cuts its grass and revs its engines in the full glare of daylight. Those starting work at 4am are thought to have the mental prowess of those who’ve downed a few whiskies, which may explain a higher rate of work injuries at night than in the day. Cause of cancer. Brain drain. Feeling down. Also pitted to eat more and unhealthy!

That is how crazy this is what current medical profession is doing. And policy makers, influences by food industry lobby listed on Wall Street. Defending their interest in selling processed, fast and junk food.

How Exercise May Help Memory - NYTimes.com
What these findings suggest, the authors conclude, is that endurance training and weight training may have different physiological effects within the brain and cause improvements in different types of memory. [...] for the most robust brain health, it’s probably advisable to incorporate both aerobic and resistance training. It seems that each type of exercise “selectively targets different aspects of cognition,” she says, probably by sparking the release of different proteins in the body and brain.

RSA Animate - Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us - YouTube
This lively RSA Animate, adapted from Dan Pink's talk at the RSA, illustrates the hidden truths behind what really motivates us at home and in the workplace.

- reward schemes for cognitive tasks do not work.
- mechanical task, reward schemes for performance do work

Thus,
>> pay people enough, to take the issue of money off the table and people think about the work.
Then 3 Factors determine performance and satisfaction:
- autonomy (self-direction), mastery (of skill), purpose (contribution to something that matters and or is greater than you).
