MTV Celebrates 30th Anniversary

MTV, an acronym for Music TV, grew 30 years old yesterday. It certainly has been the most glorious history (until date) for MTV, which put its first step into the music industry on 1st August 1981. It was the time when Sandra Day O’Connor swept the honor of becoming the first female jurist of the U.S. Supreme Court. Sandra retired from Associate Justice's designation in the year 2006, exactly 5 year ago from now. I don't know if Ms. Justice ever watched MTV for the sake of music or not. It was certainly the time before CD players, Mac computers went on sale and Internet came into existence in the US.

You cannot imagine how glorious it might have been for the people who associated with MTV for so long  or some time. Martha Quinn, one among the then 5 VJs of MTV, can certainly feel this. The other four were J.J. Jackson, Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, and Alan Hunter. Are we forgetting something?. No, but yes someone. Trevor Horn, the famous singer who sung the famous 'Video killed the radio star' song. This was the first song played on MTV and that too for about a year. Sounds too good! Isn't it? Yes, it does. Mr. Horn, who is 62 year old now, must be remembering the days when he quickly shot to fame after singing the song. Good Old Days..We can expect more such wonderful times from our own MTV.

Go Active for Improved Decision Making

Yes, you heard it right! An active lifestyle can just help you take your decisions in an improving manner. A recent study conducted at Wichita State University in the US concludes that the auditory system in humans has a direct relation with their decision-making ability. Dr. Ray Hull, an audiologist at Wichita and who also led the study, describes that humans tend to comprehend and implement what they hear. According to Dr. Hull, if a person in his late 80s and early 90s do some cardiovascular exercises, then it will improve his hearing (auditory) ability and consequently speed up his ability to think and implement things. Dr. Hull said "One of the reasons the processing of what people hear tends to decline with advancing age is that they become less and less active as they get older,"

Adult children often wonder: "Why can’t dad seem to understand what we’re saying to him or make decisions about what we tell him anymore?" Dr. Hull said "the answer to that question may not be that dad is hard of hearing, but it may be his inability to comprehend or process what he hears, which may be due to lethargic lifestyle". 

So, guys what do you think? Isn't it a good idea to pull up socks, do some stretches, and dive into the pool of happiness. Of course the ability to hear more and comprehend more will bring happiness in your life..Let me know what do you think about this.
