One way we can do each of the above is to promote good health this year. One of our greatest assets as humans is our health. It governs so many other areas in our lives. Without good health, we can’t function at our best. January kicks off a new year, and as such we can use it to set the tone for our health. It is National Book Month and National Thyroid Month. Join us as we explore good brain health, the benefits of reading, good thyroid health, and how we can set healthy goals for 2019! Happy New Year!

“We can only see a short distance ahead, but we can see plenty
there that needs to be done.” ~ Alan Turing
Cultural Tidbit: The above quote belies the effect of Alan Turing’s life and accomplishments. He is widely considered the father of AI (artificial intelligence) and theoretical computer science, fields of study that are only now truly accelerating. His “short distance” was definitely further reaching than most; he was a veritable man ahead of his time. Born June 23, 1912, in London England, Alan Mathison Turing was recognized to have incredible intelligence and gifting from an early age. As he grew, so did his abilities, particularly in science and problem solving. He made significant contributions in mathematics, computing, logic, theoretical biology, philosophy and cryptanalysis. During WWII, he was instrumental in helping to break the Nazi cyphers and codes at Bletchly Park. His work there focused on the Enigma code and his efforts helped to turn the tide for the allies. Sadly, Turing died at the age of 41, but his legacy and contributions live on in our lives today.
