Will Trying to be Happier Work?

Friday, September 20th, 2013

logo1267406_mdA new study published in The Journal of Positive Psychology  concluded that becoming happier is as easy as trying to become happier. In their first study, the researchers had two groups listen to “happy music”. Those who actively tried to feel happier reported the highest level of positive mood afterwards. In their second study two groups listened to a range of “positive ” music over a two-week period and those who were instructed to focus on improving their happiness experienced a greater increase in happiness that the group who were told to just focus on the music. The researchers said the factor making one grou0p0 happier than the other seemed to be a combination of actively trying to become happier  and using the right method-listening to happy music. These finding challenge earlier studies that concluded that trying to become happier was counterproductive.

Adapting to Suicide, Job Loss, and A Greener Environment

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

My guests on Saturday are Carl David, left, Ron Esposito, center, and Leslie Reichert.

Carl David who was born in Philadelphia,  is the third descendant of a four-generation art dealer family specializing in American and European seventeenth, eighteenth, nineteenth- and twentieth-century paintings, watercolors, sculptures and drawings.
Carl earned a Bachelor of Arts with a degree in business in 1970 from Oglethorpe College in Atlanta, Georgia. Bader Field is his second published book. He is also the author of Collecting and Care of Fine Art published by Crown Publishers (1981). His article “Martha Walter” appeared in the May 1978 issue of American Art Review. Carl is constantly being queried by the various art journals and financial magazines for his perspective on the state of the art markets. In light of the fact that the gallery has been in business since 1910, it is considered to be a standard in the industry and is given the utmost of respect for its integrity, knowledge and pursuit of excellence. A recent article, “The Lure Of Flying” was published in Avantoure Magazine, England, March /April 2009 (www.avantoure.com). Carl has more books in the works.  He was recently acknowledged as a resident editor of www.flyawaysimulation.com.
Carl was a charter member of Sotheby’s.com (New York), and is a member of the Art and Antique Dealers League, and La Confederation Internationale De Negotiants En Oeuvres D’Art. He has served as judge for The Manayunk Art Show, co-chairman of the gallery committee member of Rittenhouse Row, guest auctioneer for WHYY, and panel member for The Art News World Art Market (New York). Carl has been involved with The Friends of Rittenhouse Square, The Free Appraisal Clinic, The Philadelphia Art Museum, The Dealer’s Committee for US Artists, and Rittenhouse Row.
Using his knowledge of the fine arts, Carl has taught “Collecting Fine Art” at Main Line School Night, and served as a guest lecturer at the Philadelphia Library, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the U.S. Artists Exhibition (2004–2006). As a philanthropist, David has used art as a backdrop to organize and produce fundraising exhibitions for the Washington, D.C. branch of the National Center For Missing & Exploited Children, the Delaware Valley Burn Foundation, The American Red Cross and The Make a Wish Foundation.
Carl has given appraisals and consultations for: the Brandywine River Museum, American Bar Association, The White House, Office of the Attorney General, State of New York, FBI, State Department, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Union League Club of Philadelphia, Buck Hill Falls Art Association, Law Firm of Ronald A. White, Law Firm of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, the DuPont Family, the Wilmington Library, The Hagley Museum, Strassburger, McKenna, Gutnick & Potter (Pittsburgh), Wilkes College (Sordoni Art Gallery) Wilkes Barre, PA, University of Virginia, Cigna, and Sun Oil Company.
Along with his expert interest and career as an art dealer, Carl has serious involvement in both music and photography. He does all of the gallery photography work and has several photographic images hosted on Webshots.com and istockphoto.com. His specialties are atmospheric, landscape and travel always with emphasis on the beauty of nature. In years past various formats were employed, including 8 x 10, 645 (medium format), and 35 mm but today the primary modality is high resolution digital.
Having played piano at a very young age and then teaching himself to play guitar years later, Carl was part of two rock groups during his late teens. After a lengthy hiatus of several decades he has returned to his passion for music. With a mega-keyboard in his studio at home, with headphones donned, he has written nearly a dozen ballads. His first (“My Love For You”) written for his wife, was professionally mastered, arranged, and produced by the legendary Dave Appell of Decca Records and Cameo-Parkway Records. His latest song, “Loving You” harks back to the eighties soft rock mode. Several others pieces have been completed and are currently awaiting arrangement and production. When asked “What next”? he replies, “I have no idea; it just comes out when it is ready. I really have no control over it. Creativity cannot be forced; it has a mind of its own. My music speaks to me and has a vivid voice in its non-vocal instrumentation.
For many years, Carl David has had a serious interest in and has been a proponent of all aspects of healing. Of particular interest is “hands on” healing and energy work. Animals are of special love to Carl and are drawn to him as he is to them. He has worked on several over the years. It is as though he is connected to them by an invisible thread. He has woven spirituality and energy work into his daily life. As a firm believer in “paying it forward,” he knows that karmic debts must be paid, and is very cognizant of keeping a clear conscious and doing the right thing. What goes around comes around, inevitably. Life has thrown him some nasty turns, but instead of being bitter and resentful, he has tried to learn from each experience and shift his focus toward something positive.
His latest book, “Bader Field” was recently published by Nightengale Press and is now available at www.carledavid.com & www.nightengalepress.com & www.authorsden.com/carledavid & www.amazon.com & www.amazon.co.uk & www.barnesandnoble.com & www.borders.com & www.froogle.com.  It is now also available for immediate download on the iPad, iPhone and iPod in the Apple iBookstore as well as on the Kindle, Nook, Kobo and in about 60 other digital markets.

Ron Esposito has an  extensive background in the music industry and public radio and is first and foremost a musician with nearly forty years experience playing, producing and recording.  After thirteen years, four CDs, numerous awards and thousands of miles touring with Greg Schaber & High Street, Ron’s lifelong interest in spirituality, metaphysics, philosophy and personal transformation led him down a new musical path – composing, arranging and performing the ancient Tibetan Brass and Crystal Singing Bowls.  “Open Heart” (Spiral Music 2009), his debut solo project, received critical praise, was added to the nationally syndicated radio program Echoes’ playlist and received a national Telly Award for its video.  His second solo CD, “We Are One” (Spiral Music, August 2011), takes the listener on an expansive listening adventure that’s contemplative, thoughtful and profoundly multifaceted.                     Ron’s career in the music industry began at Ohio University, where he opened Haffa’s Records and also headed up the university concert series. Upon graduation, he moved to Boston to co-manage the city’s premier jazz club, The Jazz Workshop.  Then it was on to New York City to work as CTI Records road manager touring with Airto, Deodato and the CTI Jazz All-Stars.                                            He earned his Masters in Broadcast Management and in 1986, moved to Cincinnati, where he became Special Projects Producer for WVXU, 91.7 FM (NPR) and the X-Star Network of seven NPR affiliate stations in four states.  In addition to producing and hosting three music programs, Ron produced three compilation CDs featuring Cincinnati-based jazz musicians.  He also served as producer for the nationally syndicated Riders in the Sky’s “Riders Radio Theater” show and the Windham Hill “Winter Solstice Concerts.”                             Ron’s debut recording project playing both the Tibetan and Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls, “Lifting the Veil” (2008), is a collection of Enneagram meditations spoken by Ron and Deborah Ooten and featuring Billy Larkin on keyboard, Ric Hordinski on guitar, and Ron playing Kalimba and various percussion.                                    For his debut solo CD, “Open Heart” (Spiral Music 2009), Ron assembled a group of renowned musical artists from genres that span both ancient and modern cultures.  The result – an inspired sound experience praised by critics as “elegant” and “joyful” – is now into its second pressing.  “Open Heart” was added to the “Echoes” playlist, the groundbreaking syndicated music program hosted by John Diliberto and distributed by Public Radio International. The “Open Heart” video received the 2010 Bronze Telly Award for “Best Online Video” out of a field of more than 13,000 entries.                         Esposito’s second solo CD, “We Are One” (Spiral Music 2011), features “Open Heart” musicians Jim Feist (tabla) and Janice T. Sunflower (Native American flutes).  They join John Ruzsa on Indian bansuri flutes and alto flute, Chris Comer on Fender Rhodes electric piano, and Eugene Goss playing percussion, alto flute and vocals.  “With the recording of “We Are One”, I wanted to explore an expanded harmonic and color palette.  Playing with the Fender Rhodes electric piano and using the technique of striking the bowls for melody and rhythm helped to achieve this.  I also had many requests for “solo bowls” on my next recording and so they are featured in some solo contexts.”  Ron resides in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he also serves clients as a certified Life Coach and Enneagram teacher and trainer at the Conscious Living Center in Cincinnati.  He performs in concert, at yoga and meditation centers, and for private events throughout the region.

Can Music Reduce the Anxiety of a Prostate Biopsy?

Friday, January 20th, 2012

Recent research published in the journal Urology concluded that noise-cancelling headphones playing classical music may reduce the anxiety and pain of a prostate biopsy that is often used to diagnose prostate cancer.
Eighty eight men were randomly assigned in the study to one of three groups. One group had no headphones, a second had noise-cancelling headphones without music, and the third had the headphones and listened to Bach concertos. Blood pressure was taken on all before and after a trans-rectal biopsy, an intrusive procedure. Among study participants, the diastolic blood pressure remained elevated after the procedure compared to before for both groups with no musical intervention. However, the men who wore the headphones and listened to Bach had no increase in blood pressure and reported less pain as measured on a questionnaire. Anxiety often causes a rise in diastolic blood pressure. This procedure is simple and easy to apply for those needing a prostate biopsy.
