Ortho-Core About To Be Backordered

AOR has had Ortho-Core on backorder. We had a good bit on hand, but now are running low and will sell out.

Why backordered again? Because Ortho-Core cannot be manufactured until ALL the ingredients are available for blending. Sometimes one or more ingredients are not available and a new run cannot be bottled.

Anyhow- I am happy to let you buy however much you like to carry you through a 2-3 month period (best to err on the side of too mucH, and not run out!)

Grab 'em and growl today.

R-Lipoic Acid Information

Just hang loose for a bit. Your doors will be blown off by what is coming. Lots of work going on in the background. Information Facts you need to make intelligent decisions.

MSNBC Weighs In: Social implications of life extension debate.

This article is worth a read.

"Toward Immortality, Part 1: Social implications of life extension debated"

A Quote:
"A doubled lifespan, Stock said, would "give us a chance to recover from our mistakes, lead us toward longer-term thinking and reduce health care costs by delaying the onset of expensive diseases of aging. It would also raise productivity by adding to our prime years."

Doubled? Well, I suppose I am looking for more. And I don't eant to recover from my mistakes, I really would like to make more mistakes.

But I will take what I can get. Sign me up! Wait, I am already signed up... I am living a healthy life and supplementing intelligently.

To Long Life!

8 Stupid Frat Boy Business Ideas

I just realized I haven't posted any personal business philosophy in months! Oh well, time to catch up. Actually, I will let the "I Will Teach You To Be Rich" blog author do my work for me.

A particularly stupid business idea from his great post:

" Ideas that compete on price. I was worried about putting this one down until I heard a friend of a friend say he was going to start a service to compete with Wal-mart on price. WAL-MART, THE WORLD'S MOST TECHNICALLY ADVANCED COMPANY IN LOGISTICS AND PRICING. Anyway, listen up: It seems like competing on price would be a good thing, until you realize that when you lower the price, you usually make less money. People are completely willing to spend more for other things like design (Target), service (Ritz-Carlton), hot people (Hooter's), etc. Don't compete on price. Once you factor in things like time and gas costs, it's very hard to compete against the scale of bigger stores. Also, you'll get the worst clients--the ones you'll have to pry money from--frustrating you with your low cash flow.

Hope you enjoy and learn something.

Cheers!

Myths, Lies, Stupidity. John Stossel, Bruce Ames (!)

I was tickled to find this article today. What a shocker to find one of the people I personally respect and admire, Professor Bruce Ames, the father of lipoic acid/acetyl-l-carnitine research involved in a part of this article about Stossels new book.

A quote:
"DR. AMES: Practically everything in the supermarket, if you really looked at it at the parts per billion level, would have carcinogens. Vegetables are good for you, yet vegetables make toxic chemicals to keep off insects, so every vegetable is 5 percent of its weight in toxic chemicals. These are Nature's pesticides. Celery, alfalfa sprouts, and mushrooms are just chock-full of carcinogens."

Ha! Makes me chuckle to think of the people that call me demanding "natural" supplements. Some peoples thought processes are a mile wide, but only an inch deep. For my business and in-house products, I test for what matters: Microbial, yeast, mold, heavy metal contamination. A molecule has no idea if it is derived synthetically or "naturally". Read up people!

Hope you enjoy.

Singularity Summit at Stanford University

If you have the desire to live a very long healthy life, and perhaps even achieve "immortality" as I do, you will want to dig into this web site.

What is the Singularity?

"Most recently, in 2005, inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil released The Singularity Is Near, where he presented the singularity as an overall exponential trend in technological development:

""What, then, is the singularity? It's a future period during which the pace of technological change will be so rapid, its impact so deep, that human life will be irreversibly transformed. Although neither utopian or dystopian, this epoch will transform the concepts that we rely on to give meaning to our lives, from our business models to the cycle of human life, including death itself. Understanding the singularity will alter our perspective on the significance of our past and the ramifications for our future. To truly understand it inherently changes one's view of life in general and one's own particular life.""

It is not arguable that our human evolution and knowledge base is becoming greatly compressed and accelerated. There are many implications for a thoughtful person to consider.

Covering the summit at some folks close to the life extension movement- Betterhumans, Fight Aging! (both loosely associated with the MPrize which I sponsor- look to your right).

Enjoy.
Happy Friday!

Caffeine- New Research

My favorite drug, caffeine. Check out this article from ABC Science Online.

A quote: "Associate Professor Pradeep Nathan of Monash University, an expert in behavioural neuroscience who was not involved in the research, says caffeine stimulates the central nervous system including the brain, where it affects several neurotransmitters.

The Melbourne-based researcher says it improves memory and makes us pay closer attention to tasks at hand.

"It does improve attention and it can improve memory so by being more attentive and remembering your attitude to a particular thing may change," he says."

Ha!
