    January 2016 - Super Bowl, Pete Rose, Hall of Fame

    in Professional

    The latest Seton Hall Sports Poll, which polled 771 Americans (by landline and cellphone across the nation), was unveilved on January 28, 2016.  With the Super Bowl coming right as the presidential primary season “kicks off,” Americans said they were following the presidential contests by more than a 2-to-1 margin over football, with 60% choosing the political contests, and 24% the Super Bowl.  53% say the political races will be the most competitive, compared to 37% naming the Super Bowl. 


    The reasons for watching the Super Bowl are of course, varied.  40% said it was best explained because they were football fans, with 19% saying they were a fan of one of the participating teams, 18% saying it was a “big event,” and 10% interested in the commercials.  Only 2% said it was primarily because they had a bet on the game, although in another question, 13% said they participated in wagering on the game.


    Peyton Manning, whose name emerged recently as having been sent human growth hormones (the report was on Al Jazeera and was recanted by the source), was the subject of a question on whether that report changed opinions about him.  (During the polling period, the NFL announced it would investigate the charges).  A significant 11% said they thought “less favorably” of him, and 76% said it had no effect.


    Pete Rose, who will be inducted in the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame this year, was the subject of two questions, the first asking whether that was appropriate - to which 47% said yes, 33% no.  The second asked if he should be eligible to be elected to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, to which 56% said yes, 28% no.


    The Seton Hall Sports Poll has been conducted regularly since 2006.

    Not "Overtrying": Science meets ancient Chinese Strategy, Dr. Edward Slingerland

    in Psychology

    Amy Alkon HumanLab -- The Science Between Us, a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.


    *"Best Of" replay. On tonight’s show, science gets together with ancient Chinese philosophy, and it likes what it finds. 


    Dr. Edward Slingerland, an internationally renowned Chinese philosophy expert, draws on both cutting-edge science and ancient Chinese strategies to show how our modern Western approach of striving our guts out doesn’t seem to lead to success or happiness.


    In fact, he observes, it seems that getting practiced enough in something that it comes naturally is the way to avoid forcing things in the moment (which is actually counterproductive to succeeding).


    Dr. Slingerland will talk about this, how achieving that sort of effortlessness is the way to personal charisma, and much more on tonight’s show. His book he’ll be discussing is “Trying Not To Try: The Art And Science of Spontaneity.” Join us and see how we can better our work, relationships, and lives -- if we can just get out of our own way.


    Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. PT, 10-11 p.m. Eastern Time, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.


    Please order my new book, the science-based and funny "Good Manners For Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck" -- only $11ish at Amazon. Orders help support my writing and the work I do to put out this show and are much appreciated!
