Latest Brainy News
Recently, BrainyZine had experienced a lot of email bounced problem
where it can't reach the subscribers' inbox. With the proliferation
of spam and virus-laden emails (yeah! talk about the MyDoom virus!),
it is not surprising to know that BrainyZine was filtered or blocked
by mistake either by your ISP or email gateway.
For example, some spam filter options
are 'on' by default in AOL
9.0 and Outlook 11, and is an option that can be turned on in MSN, Hotmail and
Norton SpamKiller. If the sender of the e-mail is not in the recipient's address
book, then emails are blocked or the links are not live.
You can "safelist" BrainyZine
by adding the email address "firstname.lastname@example.org" to
your address books. Many spam filters are configured not to affect mail from
know senders -- a.k.a. people in a recipient's address book. I hope this
will help to solve the email bouncing problem at the moment.
By the way, for the past two months
I've been struggling to work on my MBA dissertation and I'm almost
half-way through. Incidentally, my thesis topic is related to email
marketing. Amid the threats such as spamming, virus-laden
email, email overloaded and etc, it is a big challenge facing
email marketers today. And I would like to find out how relationship
marketing would help in email marketing by improving brand awareness,
credibility as well as trust.
The research methodology in this study
will be based on quantitative research approach using web-based survey
method. I'm in the process of preparing set of questionnaires. While
the online survey participation is strictly voluntarily, but I sincerely
hope that YOU can participate. And I assure your identity will be remained anonymous.
So, watch your
email over next few weeks for this online survey. Thanks in
advance. Take care.
p/s: If you think I did not do a good
job on BrainyZine recently, that was the reason, I'm busy with my
thesis. I hope you can forgive me ....8-)

Wouldn't it be nice if you could swallow a pill rather than study for a test? Are there
such "smart pills"? Perhaps you could take a pill and get a "mental tune-up" if you are
feeling a bit dull.

Intelligent Memory: Improve the Memory That Makes You Smarter
By Dr. Barry Gordon & Lisa Berger
Average Customer Review - 5 Stars
In this groundbreaking and important book, Dr. Barry Gordon, one of
the world's leading authorities on memory, and Lisa Berger
offer a bold new synthesis of the two essential components
of the human mind: intelligence and memory. Gordon and
Berger argue that "intelligent memory" is the key
to our ability to solve problems, learn from experience,
associate, and innovate. As critical to the creation of
works of genius as it is to navigating the complexities of
daily life, intelligent memory is not an innate gift but a
skill that we can learn, hone, and actually improve with
age-no matter how old or absentminded we might be.
Memory Workbook: Breakthrough Techniques to Exercise Your
Brain and Improve Your Memory
By Douglas J. Mason & Et al
Average Customer Review - 5 Stars
Like clay, memory needs applied energy to give it form. However, this energy is often blocked by
negative thoughts about aging and memory. Building on this underlying principle, this workbook
shows readers how to rewire the mental habits that interfere with memory functioning and offers
practical solutions based on the latest scientific research. Anyone at any age, the authors say,
can tap into the natural strength of the brain's multiple memory systems. Through innovative techniques,
exercises, games, and puzzles, readers learn how to maximize the receptiveness of their senses,
focus on what is important and block out what isn't, rehearse and imprint information, and use
visual imagery to retain experiences.
Professor Explores the Healing Power of Music
LSU Highlights Jan, 2004

Woman's Hospital to see if playing music to newborn premature infants can stimulate the babies'
brains, so they can go home earlier.
Cassidy has found that when music is played to an infant,
their heart and respiratory rates improve and their head circumference increases. "We've found
that girl babies in music therapy go home 11 days earlier than girl babies with no therapy,"

Studies have, in fact, shown that children perform better if they eat breakfast. Now a
psychologist at the University of Virginia thinks he has discovered the reason for that.
