Brains, Blazers, and Neurocore

The Portland Trail Blazers have a new training strategy this season. The NBA Team has partnered up with Neurocore, a company that focuses on brain training. After a game or practice, players head straight to a special room where they watch DVD’s for thirty minutes, with a Neurocore Pro device placed on their heads. Through the use of low frequency waves, the device detects electrical activity in the brain. As long as players remain focused on what they are watching, the DVD plays, but if attention wanders or if too many thoughts intrude, the DVD stops playing, and players must refocus. It is important to complete this training right after the intense physical activity on the court, because the low frequency waves promote the deepest recovery.

The goal of having this period of intense focus is to improve the health and recovery of each athlete. More than two thousand reinforcements can be made to the brain in a thirty minute session, which allows high levels of recovery. Tim Royer, Neurocore’s founder, believes the brain training ultimately leads to peak performance on the basketball court. Pro athletes have demanding schedules which take a toll on their body systems. The sessions optimize brain function, as well as the performance of the cardiovascular, respiratory, and endocrine systems. Royer says the ability of the brain “to be in the zone is the next level in sports.” The director of health and performance for the Blazers, Dr. Chris Stackpole, believes the brain training will also lead to more quality rest between games, and Neurocore agrees by promising more restorative sleep following sessions.

NBA teams have always understood the importance of muscle memory, and players spend hours practicing moves on the court so they become automatic. Now, this technique has just extended to time off the court, and brains are going through training so that focus and relaxation can become as automatic as other practiced behaviors. Being able to have an element of control over the brain and being capable of entering a focused state at will, allows the Blazers to perform at their best during a game, then rest and recharge following the game.

How To Deal With A Cyber Crisis

Cybersecurity involves many things. It typically includes the protection of digital data that includes personal or financial information and transactions. Cybersecurity means protecting authentication, privacy, and integrity of data. The need for cybersecurity is in high demand. The world of technology affects us all and protecting what is on the internet is key to the advancement of the internet and technology.

 

William Saito is a technology expert who has learned the many ways to handle a company during a cybersecurity crisis. One of the main things he says that can help people deal with a cyber attack is to not blame anyone. Technology has made it extremely easy for many people to be affected by a cybersecurity attack. Many people can be involved and it may not be clear who is to be blamed. He warns that we should be aware or normalcy bias. Normalcy bias is how we become unaware of the potential crisis that could happen. In today’s society, technology comes so naturally to us we sometimes overlook how easily a cyber attack could happen. He believes that we should keep an eye out for cyber disasters before they occur. We should take care of our information and data online the same way we would take care of anything else in our lives.

 

William Saito has dedicated his entire life to working in technology and cybersecurity. He got his first internship when he was ten years old. While in college he launched a software company. It revolutionized Japanese software. His company was responsible for creating authentication tools with its partner Sony. He eventually sold his software company to Microsoft.

 

The businessman spends his days now working with the next generation of company founders and technology giants. In an interview, William Saito mentioned: “Having worked with young start-ups has always been enormously gratifying.” He has been able to help so many young business people by reviewing ten thousand business plans. He knows his enjoyment and passion for working with others is what makes him different in the technology sector. In the same interview, he mentioned: “I’m kind of an anomaly in the tech and computer world in that I actually like people, I like working with them, I like talking to them.”
