The success speaks for itself. In addition to his undeniable success with Styx, DeYoung has continued to have a successful solo career. DeYoung recently completed his solo album 26 East, Vol. 1 (2020). And depending on the management of the pandemic, DeYoung is hoping to embark on a North American tour this spring celebrating over 40 years since The Grand Illusion was made. And yet, of all the hard-nosed realities he’s faced professionally, one that he perhaps didn’t expect was that achieving success doesn’t extinguish those fears and the need for approval. “The best part about what happened to me in the final analysis is, perhaps, I left some small mark on the world — small. And I was able to provide very nicely for my family, which is never to be discounted. Never. When your dream comes true, then what? ... We finally hit it with The Grand Illusion and sold 4 million albums. No. I thought I'd feel better. I felt the same. Talk to any real successful … [Read more...] about How Dennis DeYoung Helped Me Face the Life Ahead of Me

There is in fact considerable evidence for ADHD being one end of a continuum rather than a discrete entity.23 Even the brain imaging and genetic findings associated with ADHD are consistent with a continuum model.24 This does not negate the distress and impairment of functioning associated with more severe symptoms,25 nor the need for and value of treatment. But it does inevitably mean that there will always be debate about what degree of symptoms (or perhaps we should say of traits) warrants treatment. It also means that the “treatments” can legitimately be understood as performance enhancers, improving the functioning of individuals with a short attention span. … [Read more...] about Is ADHD a Real Disorder or One End of a Normal Continuum?
And perhaps paradoxically, Fallon feels that this foot in reality is the key to being able to escape fully onstage. “The high you feel when you are on stage, and there’s either 100 people or 10,000 people moving in sync to what you are communicating to them, there’s no other high like it in the world. And when you get off stage, you don’t want it to end, but it does. There’s a come down from it, and I think that a lot of musicians turn to drugs to stay up there. And on the flip side of that, if it’s a shit show, and there’s 10,000 people looking at you like you’ve got two heads, you can try to escape from that in a similar fashion. So, I think one of the reasons this band has been able to maintain it for as long as we have is, we have a very marked delineation between [being on stage and off].” … [Read more...] about The Universal Truth of Clutch’s Neil Fallon
It is generally recommended that people begin light therapy in the early fall and continue to use it through the spring. It is also usually best when the light is used in the morning soon after awakening. As noted above, it is important to avoid looking at the light directly. So simply putting it on a table or a desk while having breakfast, checking email, reading the paper, putting on cosmetics, or using your phone is perfectly fine to do. In fact, any way you can integrate using the light into your morning routine will help establish the consistency of use that is important for optimum therapeutic benefits. … [Read more...] about ‘Tis the Season to Be… Not Jolly
At least two studies defined breakfast eaters as those who ate breakfast four or more times a week (Schlundt et al, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 1992; Dhurandhar et al, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2014). Another study of almost 15,000 men, women, and children, found about 20% of the U.S. population skips breakfast but of those who do consume it, there were as many as 12 different breakfast patterns. Here skipping breakfast was defined by eating 50 or fewer calories (Drewnowski et al, Nutrients, 2018). Most recently, in their sophisticated systematic review and meta-analysis of ten randomized controlled trials (RCTs), investigators found there were major differences in the populations studied and the length of time (from 72 hours to 16 weeks) of each study (Bohan Brown et al, 2020). Some studies supply food, others allow subjects to choose, and some others did not even ask what foods their subjects were eating (Rong et al, Journal of the American College of … [Read more...] about Controversy for Breakfast
