    NASA engineer spent forty years studying the meaning of existence. Call in!

    in Spirituality

    David Gaggin has degrees in math and electrical engineering. He worked for 17 years as an electronics design engineer and technical manager for Boeing, where he was responsible for designing automatic flight control and avionics systems.


    Subsequently Gaggin spent nine years as a senior executive with the US Army directing avionics and command and control R&D. During this period he also directed joint Army/NASA laboratories at Langley and Ames and was the US Army’s representative on the NATO Advisory Group for Aerospace R&D. He then went on to create Cobham Defense Electronics Systems, the world’s leading military radar microwave subsystem company.


    Taking advantage of his extensive training, he voraciously studied all the major religions and their origins.He studied the eastern and western philosophers. As a trained engineer he studied all the sciences including quantum mechanics, relativity, cosmology, anthropology, and archeology. He explored the history of languages, along with the history of agriculture and domestic farming. He studied reincarnation, mystics, and UFO’s.


    Eventually Gaggin’s extensive research began to coalesce into answers that made sense to his scientifically trained mind. He began to apply the principles of what he was learning to his own life. Inspired by the results and wanting to pass along his understandings, he compiled his learnings into his groundbreaking book The Endless Journey:A Unique Perspective on Mankind's Origin, Purpose and Ultimate Destiny. “No matter what the reader’s spiritual understanding, all seekers of knowledge and wisdom will gain comfort and understanding from The Endless Journey,” says Gaggin.

    Surviving the Republican assault on the University of Wisconsin.

    in Education

    What if your mission was to "envision a Wisconsin where postsecondary education moves forward through an open exchange of ideas, the careful consideration of research, and a strong focus on the public good?" 


    However what if you actually tried realizing that mission during the last 4 months of Republican sponsored carpet bombing targeting the concrete ideals on which that mission rests?


    This Thursday in a special episode of BustEd Pencils, Jed and Tim talk to two of the warriors from the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE).



    Noel Tomas Radomski: Director and Assciate Researcher
    Jason Lee: Outreach Programs Manager 


    Among many topics, we will ask Noel and Jason  to provide a sense of the damage that was done and how WISCAPE will continue to fight back the attack on the essential freedom to learn and focus on the public good.

    How to Create New Neural Pathways

    in Health

    Doing the same things the same way day in and day out dig deep ruts into the same, tired neural pathways. Our neurons get rutted and cluttered with debris. Symptoms flare.


    What can be done? Existing neurological pathways can be cleared and cleansed or we can create new pathways. Either approach reduces or eliminates symptoms.


    The most expedient approach is to pave new pathways which means our habits have to be transformed. How can this be accomplished? Answering this question has been the focus of my research over the past year. Two opportunities are available to explore the possibilities.


    First, natural methods to create new neural pathways can be explored which is the focus of my Udemy Jump Start to Recovery course and the Alderbrook Jump Start to Recovery Program. 


    Second, I discuss a variety of exciting methods for creating new neural pathways during this radio show. All of my suggestions embrace natural approaches.

    Dr. Craig Malkin debuts Rethinking Narcissism

    in Lifestyle

    “What is Narcissism?” is one of the fastest-rising searches on Google, and articles on the topic routinely go viral. Yet the word “narcissism” seems to mean something different every time it’s uttered. In fact, the more it’s slung about, the more slippery its true meaning becomes. The only certainty, it would seem, is that it’s bad to be a narcissist—really bad. for millennials, been branded “the most narcissistic generation ever.”


    In RETHINKING NARCISSISM (HarperWave – on sale July 7), Dr. Craig Malkin—a Harvard Medical School-affiliated psychologist with more than two decades of clinical experience—offers a radically new model for understanding this often misused term. Narcissism, argues Dr. Malkin, is essentially a spectrum of self-importance— and everyone falls somewhere on the scale between utter selflessness and total arrogance.


    Yet there are also those who live at the lower end of the spectrum—termed “echoists” by Dr. Malkin.
    Drawing on his own research as well as the latest findings in psychology, Dr. Malkin explains why it’s essential to embrace some degree of narcissism in order to maintain a healthy sense of self-worth. Using a new diagnostic tool—the Narcissism Test—Dr. Malkin guides readers through the process of measuring.


    Dr. Craig Malkin is an author, clinical psychologist, and Instructor of Psychology for Harvard Medical School with two decades of experience helping individuals, couples, and families. His insights on relationships have been appeared in Psychology Today, Marie Claire, and Women’s and Men’s Health mags.
