IS THERE A “GOLDILOCKS” CANDIDATE IN THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION? PSYCHOLOGIST ANALYZES “VOTER BRAIN”
October 17, 2016
As we move closer to the presidential election, voters are being asked to decide between two controversial candidates. For many voters, the ideal Goldilocks-inspired “just- right” candidate is missing in 2016.
Many voters may feel like they are living in Never-Neverland. They do not like The Donald nor do they like Hillary. Voters believe they have limited choices. In fact, it’s hard to meet anyone who doesn’t have strong opinions this time around, causing some voters to say they’re not voting at all. But research tells us that people turn up more often than not to vote against a particular candidate.
Fairy tale characters can be found in every election, according to Wendy P. Basil, Ph.D., and Sherry Klinger. Dr. Basil, a media psychologist and university professor, and Klinger, a media branding expert and consultant are co-authors of SPINOLOGY: ...

October 14, 2016
“As the moms and pops that built our mobile home parks age out, predatory, out-of-town corporate investors have been taking over.”
– Measure V proponents
“Once rent control is adopted, politicians will – by the tenants’ votes – be giving the landlord’s property to the tenants. It happens all the time.”
– Sam Landy, CEO UMH Properties, not directly impacted by Measure V

Get Yourself Together Man!

Men are humble and uncomplicated creatures.
Unfortunately in today’s world of media influence and the pressure to conform to idealized, and sometimes less masculine, points of view it’s hard out there for a man.

CEO and Founder Tim Seidler thinks it’s an area of men’s health and wellness that is severely under-represented online.
“Guys, by nature, aren’t very likely to ask for help” says Seidler. He continues “…but if you can reach them at a place of interest and sneak in some gentle advice on what they could be doing better you’ve got an opportunity to help guys in the area of self-improvement.”
And don’t we all need to improve in one area of our life or another?

Tompkins Financial Advisors Provide Help in Understanding Risk Tolerance
October 14, 2016
Understanding Your Risk Tolerance
Do you fill the gas tank when it's half full or do you keep driving until the needle reaches empty? Do you brake when the traffic light turns yellow or do you accelerate through the intersection?
Your daily actions are a reflection of your attitude toward risk and your ability to accept or tolerate risk. In the world of investing, this can impact how you build a portfolio because you need to consider the level of risk you can handle as an investor, according to wealth advisor Matthew Forney, with Tompkins Financial Advisors in Ithaca, NY.
Risk Tolerance in Investing
When considering purchasing an investment, it is essential to evaluate two aspects of risk tolerance: (1) your capacity for risk, or ability to absorb losses; and (2) how comfortable you are with risk.

Neurodon Publishes Breakthrough Discovery for Parkinson's Disease Treatment
October 14, 2016
Neurodon LLC has recently published a breakthrough study that paves the way for a new, effective way to treat Parkinson's disease. The novel strategy focuses on a process called endoplasmic reticulum stress, or ER stress. Parkinson's disease is caused by the loss of dopamine-producing brain cells in certain areas of the brain. A major cause of this cell loss is ER stress, and Neurodon scientists have found a way to halt this ER stress. This article establishes the key link between ER stress and Parkinson's disease that is the primary step in developing a new medicine.
This report marks the first time a small molecule targeting this pathway has been effective in a model for Parkinson's disease, specifically the 6-OHDA model, which is the industry standard preclinical model to vet new Parkinson’s medications. The compound's efficacy in this model is comparable to the gold standard treatment Levodopa, which is metabolized by the body to produce dopamine....
