We start the show by talking about Gary’s birthday.  He turns 45 on the day the squad recorded this episode.  We talk about the process of aging and the value of making good decisions.

Main Show:

Sarah’s W.I.N’s:

The Apple Watch can now detect falls and contact emergency services.  The conversation transitions into how Apple plans to get into healthcare through wearables.

Sarah tells us the three questions we should ask ourselves each morning to make sure our days go the way we want them to.

Peter’s W.I.N’s:

A new study shows that women who have a high level of physical fitness in middle age are less likely to develop dementia later in life.  We discuss the causation/correlation relevance of this result.

Researchers have found that there is a sweet spot for the amount of sleep.  Anything above or below that number has adverse effects on cognitive function.

Gary’s W.I.N’s:

A new study of Google searches a state-by-state breakdown of phobias.  The most common phobia (10 states) is the fear of failure.  We talk about why this is and what we can do to make failure less fearful.

Lifehacker did a poll on grocery items that people were unwilling to substitute with a generic brand.  We discuss that list as well as our lists.

Fan Feedback:

None.  Stay tuned for a fan feedback show coming up.
