Be Good To Yourself With Good Music: SOMA FM Internet Radio

I work way too much, usually 7 days a week and 10-14 hours a day. It is nice to have some good music playing and not to be subjected to commercials. The answer? SOMA FM Internet Radio.

SomaFM Internet Radio

You choose the type of music you like, click the link, and enjoy.

Free.

No commercials.

For the past 1 1/2 years I have listened and remain amazed at this "free lunch". But I am no parasite! You can click on their page to contribute to listener-supported commercial free radio.

This works for nearly any internet connection you might have: 56k, DSL, Broadband, Wireless etc as they offer a selection of streaming speeds to accomodate. The bigger your pipe, the higher the fidelity.

The internet at it's best. Check it out now...

Does Relentless Improvement Sell "Real" Substances?

I don't whether to laugh or cry.

The circumstances thankfully don't happen often. Customer calls and says "Hey, uh, is such and such product the real thing?"

Relentless Improvement is the only company that I know of in the world that provides independent, 3rd party analysis of its Relentless Improvement branded products. So far, CoA's using 3 different well-respected labs, all FDA approved.

I spend a ton of money to have these tests done. Locating and providing reference standards for HPLC analysis is usually an incredible headache, and always expensive. Often, a "method" (to test a substance) must also be provided or developed for the HPLC, it too is a headache to obtain.

The test results are always tied to the lot number of the product that my customer receives. I do large bottling runs so as to spread the cost of the testing over many sales. When a new run is produced, a new CoA is generated.

All lab information is clearly visible on the test results. Anyone desiring to confirm the authenticity of what I present is easily able to do so.

Having workups from a variety of labs additionally precludes the (slim) chance that I somehow managed to persuade the (FDA approved) lab to "customize" the results.

Links to CoA's are easily accessible from the individual product pages AND I placed a link to them smack in the middle of the RelentlessImprovement.com home page.

Consider the state of the US supplement market: a total lack of 3rd party testing for toxic metals, possibility of dangerous microbial and fungal contamination and no HPLC proof the product actually contains what is claimed.

I applaud a customer concerned about quality, but our products are the only ones backed up by proof. I put my money where my mouth is.

How about saving that question for the other sites you do business with?

Methuselah Foundation Receives $3.5 Million Vote of Confidence

Kevin Parrott, outreach coordinator of the Methuselah Foundation, emailed me today to announce "a major step forward in applying engineering principles to age-related disease with the commitment of 3.5 million dollars from Peter Thiel, Co-Founder of PayPal, towards funding the research behind Aubrey de Grey's SENS proposals".

Methuselah Foundation "offers the multi-million dollar Methuselah Mouse Prize (Mprize), in the spirit of the Ansari X Prize, to be awarded for significant, scientifically reproducible life extension in already aged lab mice, to create a “tipping point” in anti-aging science".

Visit the MPrize.org page.

Through my business Relentless Improvement LLC, I have supported and sponsored MPrize for over a year now. Your purchases through Relentless Improvement help bring science to bear in solving the disease of aging.

PS- Late edit and update: Just found this article in today's San Francisco Chronicle regarding this story. I love the controversy! Stimulates much needed debate.

All Crayhon Research Products Up To 15% Off Sale

I added Crayhon Research as a vendor a few months ago. They offer some of the highest quality products in the world. Among the line-up is a great Multi, two awesome Brain formulas (powder/capsules), Alpha-GPC gels, and carnitine/biotin capsules/powders. Rounded out with a pharma grade MCT oil.

Their formulations are simply superb.

If you order one item receive 10% off, 2 or more 15% off. My margin on this line is slim, so this is a real steal for you.

Grab'em and growl.

Can I Sponsor Your Forum/Blog/Site?

I like supporting good sites and good people. For the past year (or more) I, through my business Relentless Improvement, have gladly sponsored ImmInst.org and MPrize.org.

And I would like to add to my sponsorships. Selectively and with an eye to quality.

Do you represent a site, forum or blog that might enjoy a financial contribution in return for a static banner or other ad placement? If so, please email me at pete@relentlessimprovement.com and tell me what arrangement you are seeking. It would be helpful if you could include a file attachment (screen capture from your analytics package) quantifying the nature of your traffic (low traffic but high quality site is fine).

If you don't actually have authority to represent a site, please don't email me - I don't have the time to sort through suggestions.

Relentless Improvement in the short space of 1.5 years has firmly established itself as the leader in service and quality in the nutritional supplement business. No other business in the world has committed to public disclosure of 3rd party testing of its products as I have.

You might find this post months (years?) after I wrote it, doesn't matter, please contact me.

Sleeping Pill Wakes Up Brain-Damaged Vegatative Patients

Kind of off-topic for my blog but there is a fascinating story in the UK Guardian about a certain sleeping pill that has "awakened" patients in a persistant vegatative state. A great read, hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Click here for the story.

"Across three continents, brain-damaged patients are reporting remarkable improvements after taking a pill that should make them fall asleep but that, instead, appears to be waking up cells in their brains that were thought to have been dead. In the next two months, trials on patients are expected to begin in South Africa aimed at finding out exactly what is going on inside their heads. Because, at the moment, the results are baffling doctors."
