Dr. David Bach from the Platypus Institute – September 30

davidbachheadshotOur guest speaker on September 30 is Dr. David Bach from the Platypus Institute who will talk about: Rewire your Brain and Body for Peak Performance

Scientists have been fascinated with the study of human peak performance for over 60 years, but during the past decade, as a result of dramatic improvements in both biological imaging technology and computer processing capability, knowledge in this area has exploded.

We now understand, in great depth, what happens to our brains and bodies when we operate in a “peak performance” or flow state. And with this information in hand, our ability to “rewire” our brains and bodies to enhance performance has, similarly expanded. For example, technology exists today that: measurably increases cognitive functioning in a variety of arenas including IQ, memory and creativity; optimizes sleep; expands energy capacity; increases longevity; and increases sensory capabilities.
David Bach

Dr. David Bach, a Harvard-trained scientist and physician, and the Founder and President of the Platypus Institute, will guide us through this emerging landscape of Peak Performance science, sharing actionable research and technologies that allow us to immediately enhance our day-to-day effectiveness. He’ll also discuss future developments we can expect in this field and the Platypus Institute’s research agenda.

Please register early to help us with the planning of the venue space. Please note that there is a fee for Visiting Rotarians/Rotaractors, and guests. We serve wine, sodas, water, and light appetizers (all included in your fee) at the meeting.

Special Meeting Notice for April 2, 2014

Special Meeting Notice – On April 2nd we have the privilege of having two Special Agents from the U.S. Department of State provide a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) . The DSS has a broad scope of responsibilities protecting people, information, and property as the only law enforcement agency with representation in nearly every country in the world. Overseas, the DSS develops and implements security programs to safeguard all personnel who work in every U.S. diplomatic mission around the world. The DSS formulates plans to deal with various emergency contingencies, including defining emergency management responsibilities for incidents ranging from hostage taking to evacuations. They are the primary liaison with foreign police and security services overseas in support of U.S. law enforcement initiatives and investigations.

In the United States, the Bureau protects the Secretary of State, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and foreign dignitaries who visit the United States. The DSS develops and implements security programs to protect the more than 100 domestic State Department facilities as well as the residence of the Secretary of State. The DSS also assists foreign embassies and consulates in the United States with the security for their missions and personnel.
