Competing in memory competitions is very exciting for me. Every year in March Tony Dottino hosts the USA Memory Championship in New York City. I first competed in this tournament in 2008 after returning from my deployment to Afghanistan (I was a reservist). I first won the tournament March 7, 2009 and set two national [...]

I had picked TC up at his hotel earlier in the day as he was visiting my town of Dallas/Fort Worth.  After a few hours of driving he pointed out the window and stated, ' That is where a lake is right?'  There was no way that he could have seen the lake and I [...]

Easy To Be Hard – Hard To Be Smart

2016-10-22T08:52:56+00:00

If you described a SEAL as hard, he would take that as a compliment and most likely agree. Hard in terms of being a SEAL means that he is strong mentally and refuses to accept mediocrity. He has attained a level of mental toughness grasped by only a few. His mind views pain as weakness [...]

Bring Your Own Weather

2016-10-22T08:52:55+00:00

As a SEAL you will find yourself in frigidly cold waters, muddy grass that you will call a bed or jogging with enough weight in gear that would halt the legs of mere mortals to a crawl. In BUDS, the difference between the men who will become SEALS and those who will ring the bell [...]

What makes an exercise Neurobic?

2016-10-22T08:52:55+00:00

To begin with, not everything that's novel or new provides the kind or strength of nerve cell stimulation that is necessary to activate new brain circuits and enhance neurotrophin production. For example, if you normally write with a pen and one day choose to write everything in pencil, you've broken your routine and are doing something new. So, in some small way, you've changed the patterns of activity in the parts of your brain activated by touching. But such a small change wouldn't recruit new sensory associations important enough to engage the circuitry required to really exercise your brain.

Learn a new language

2016-10-22T08:52:56+00:00

I have often described the sport of memory as something similar to learning a new language. I have pictures for every number from 1-1000. I essentially memorized them through route memorization. It would be equivalent of learning 1000 new words in a new language and that is exactly what it is! The language of memor
