Hi Everyone,

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 "" 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-)

Smart Drugs
By Eric H. Chudler, Ph.D, Department of Anesthesiology,
University of Washington, Seattle, WA.

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. 


The 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.  



LSU Professor Explores the Healing Power of Music
LSU Highlights Jan, 2004

Louisiana State University Music professor, Jane Cassidy is conducting research at Baton Rouge's 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," Cassidy said.
