Recommended Brain Check Tool to Help reduce your risk of dementia

Start checking and training your brain


I came across an article today suggesting a brain checker tool to help avoid dementia.

I covered this topic in another of my blogs back in 2019 when another report came out stating Scientists have long found a possible link between anticholinergic drugs and an increased risk of dementia.
A study published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine on Monday suggests that the link is strongest for certain classes of anticholinergic drugs — particularly antidepressants such as paroxetine or amitriptyline, bladder antimuscarinics such as oxybutynin or tolterodine, antipsychotics such as chlorpromazine or olanzapine and antiepileptic drugs such as oxcarbazepine or carbamazepine.


Study is important because it strengthens a growing body of evidence showing that strong anticholinergic drugs have long term associations with dementia risk,” said Carol Coupland, professor of medical statistics in primary care at the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom and first author of the study.


We wish it wasn’t the case but, unfortunately, memory loss is a hot topic. People have countless questions about brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.
What really causes it? Read more

So the Alzheimer’s Research UK has launched a new app which gives people of all ages tips on how to keep their brains active and to reduce the risk of dementia.

The brain checker tool encourages people to do more to look after their brains, and offers suggestions to stay sharp.

Dementia is the term used to describe a set of symptoms that over time can affect memory, problem-solving, language and behaviour. 

The disease is progressive, which means symptoms may be mild or even unnoticeable at first, but they get worse over time. There are many types of dementia but Alzheimer’s disease is the most common. The next most common is vascular dementia

Well excuse me.. In March 2015, researchers published a prospective cohort study in JAMA Internal Medicine called “Cumulative Use of Strong Anticholinergics and Incident Dementia.”

The University of Washington and Seattle healthcare system, Group Health, conducted the long-term study which tracked 3,434 men and women who were aged 65 and up, and had no dementia when the study began.

The team accessed every participant’s history of drug use for the previous decade, including both over-the-counter and prescription drugs. Over a 7-year timeline, they followed up with all the participants every two years, during which 797 participants developed dementia (637 of whom developed Alzheimer’s disease).

As researchers looked back on what those 797 individuals took, anticholinergic drugs became the main suspect. The most common anticholinergics participants used were tricyclic antidepressants, first-generation antihistamines, and bladder antimuscarinics.

Compared to those who didn’t take anticholinergic drugs, people who did for as little as three years were 54% more likely to develop dementia.

What Are Anticholinergics?
Usually, these types of drugs are prescribed to treat problems including urinary incontinence, Parkinson’s disease, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD).

Anticholinergic drugs’ main purpose is to block the actions and effects of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter which causes muscles to contract, activates pain responses and regulates endocrine and REM sleep functions.

It’s just a natural fact of life – as we age, our bodies’ ability to produce acetylcholine decreases. Since the brain actually contains many acetylcholine-producing cells, as Harvard editor Beverly Merz highlights, “blocking its effects can deliver a double whammy to older people.”


Related: NHS outlines over 45 Common Medications Linked to Memory Loss!

It was suggested that if you want to keep your head clear and brain functioning as highly as possible, steering clear of anticholinergic drugs seems ideal.


However, it is important to recognize that the long-term study revealed only a small portion of drugs was interfering with cognitive function. So, please discuss with your doctor if you’re thinking of getting off any prescribed medications.

I know that we have to try all avenues to help combat what is now the fastest growing health problem around the world.

As a result of this the last few years have set up scenarios where businesses and customers are mutually ready to adopt conversational automation.

Businesses can use an artificial intelligence chatbot to boost lead quality, reduce support costs, increase customer loyalty, and gain more sales.


A.I Chatbot for Business: Industry reports that today, just being present online is not enough. Businesses need to provide a 24/7 conversational availability, which is what customers expect across messaging platforms, social networks, websites, and other digital channels.

The e-commerce industry is on a roll with exponential sales growth. The worldwide e-commerce retail sales amounted to £3.00 trillion in 2019, which is expected to reach £6.00 trillion by 2024.

Despite this growth rate, e-commerce businesses are struggling to maintain their sales cycle with traditional channels such as social media, emails, and phone calls. Not more than 1-3% visitors feel engaged enough to fill those static forms. If you also rely on these platforms, you must be struggling with the same problem.

Relying only on the human-driven sales and support system which are becoming more and more expensive can’t lead a business to success at profitable scale.  E-commerce brands such as Shopify giant brands have created a new form of transformative digital customer experience with A.I chatbot.

Conversational A.I is helping e-commerce companies to

  • Capture and qualify leads faster
  • Create shorter sales cycles
  • Provide cross-platform support

It’s hard enough for doctors and nurses to ensure accuracy in every minute detail of their jobs. At the same time, they have to invest 1/6th of their working hours into administrative work. For instance, even the small task of arranging doctor’s appointments requires a lot of attention. Any mistake during manual entries can result in serious problems for patients.

Thankfully, now your hospital staff can automate many such tasks with A.I-powered chatbots. Instead of manually filling forms, hospital staff can simply let the self-service A.I bot schedule meetings for patients as per the available time slots and much more.

6. Conversational AI for estate Agents

Every prospective customer adds a big amount of money to an estate agency’s revenue. So, businesses can’t afford to lose those leads on social media and websites due to the nonresponsive approach or abandonment due to waiting too long..

For car dealerships, maintaining an ongoing relationship with customers is a must to keep on receiving revenue by fulfilling maintenance and repair requirements. At the same time, they need to ensure that no prospect goes away due to complications or wrong information.

Without any conversational automation, car dealerships struggle to capture leads and convince them to book a test drive due to delayed or no response. Often customers choose multiple channels to connect with a dealership and feel frustrated if they are restricted to a single channel for conversation.

So, automobile dealerships are now transforming their approach with AI-powered chatbots by integrating them across multiple channels for a unified customer experience. They are using the predictive intelligence and data segmentation capabilities of AI to find, track, and nurture leads.

How by Taking Control of Your Headline you could double your business revenue every month by Diane Shawe

If you want more leads for your business do this

Recent survey showed that 90% of ecommerce websites generally looked the same. And played little to no role in a customer’s decision to chose who they will purchase from. This means that thousands of pounds spent per month on traditional advertising has little to no contribution on over all profits.

But despite these setbacks, some businesses are earning more profits than ever while spending less time and resources then their competitors. No matter where your business is located, and no matter what condition its in, you can attract high paying customers in droves using little to known but effective techniques I’ll introduce just a couple of them to you now.

Did you know that many of your customers are willing to pay you more and buy more of your products if you simply presented it in the right way to them. You can also acquire more customers by simply marketing smarter and more efficiently as well.

One way to immediately increase your front end sales is to improve your sales letter offering.

Stop using several phones to manage your online business

Take control of your headline

You donʼt need to test and tweak a million different things until you start to doubt your own offerings, in order to bump up your conversions the first thing you want to do is just test and tweak the headline. Leave everything the same …just start changing the headline and see what happens.

You test your headline first or in some cases your email subject heading and you do that simply by just making a more powerful, more compelling headline that in my opinion should solve a problem for the reader. Once you have control over your headline then you can start testing the body of your content.

Use A.I technology by introducing conversational marketing

Start engaging with your social media followers especially if you have thousand of followers across your social media platforms?

Did you you can have a conversation, pass on details, resolve problems, show videos, get visitors to schedule appointment themselves, buy from your store, register on your courses, competition or events and much much more without you lifting a finger. A.I online virtual assistant can help you to:-

➢ Qualify your website visitors and direct them to what they want
➢ Increase your website or social media conversions
➢ Build a bigger email subscriber list
➢ Collect valuable feedback data to improve visitor experience
➢ Give them quick answer to questions
➢ Present a more streamlined buying experience
➢ Resolve complaint or problem in real time
➢ To get a more detailed answer to a query
➢ Link to calenders, videos, courses seamlessley
➢ Reduce your online admin time by 50%

Test your offering

The Key To It All. By testing your offer I mean you might want to, say, instead of selling an eBook for £12.99 – you might want to offer a physical version of your package for £27.00 + shipping and handling. You could offer three easy payments of £9.00 by a paypal subscription to a persons credit card. See?

Thatʼs actually £14.00 in total …over double the price …using a risk reversal offer that seems cheaper at first glance.
In fact, that offer would probably convert better. So it’s important to tweak your offer a lot. In the words of Dan Kennedy, “ITʼS THE OFFER, STUPID.” Iʼll give you another one.

Trial offers are another fantastic way to persuade potential customers to register, use your services and you can then up sell them afterwards (no spamming)

Testing your offer structure.

Instead of offering a trial, you could ask for a fair sum upfront £99.99 …and then gave them the big box of stuff as a bonus. They get the same thing but you simply structured the offer differently. Just imagine if you got 100 people to take your service there and then online, fees right up front. No trial, no launch, no affiliates you could see just how profitable and structured your offering truly is.

The number 1 complaint about launching and running a online #business or posting links is generating enough enquiries to make a #sale! and capturing contact details to respond

How to Create Trackable Social Media Links For Your Business by Diane Shawe

We can all agree tht social media plays an important part in sharing your message, services or products. But how do you start tracking what you have posted and how can it help your business, product or brand. I was researching this and have the following this to share with you.

It is important to set up a social media strategy to align with your business goals, and pulled together either paid or free social monitoring services, you’ve got one more habit to get into: tracking. From one fellow community manager to another, you know how important it is to know how one tweet performed versus another, or if one blog post rocked on one social network over another. This can only happen by having the right tracking in place.

Why Use Trackable Sharing Buttons

Not all sharing buttons are created equal, which is why you should pick sharing buttons that will give you a good signal of what’s going on in your site. You may see some insight in your analytics that tell you people visited your site, and some of them were from social. But to really know how and where your community is sharing your content, your sharing buttons should tell you.

How To Create Your Own Share Links

1) Go to http://www.sharelinkgenerator.com/.

2) Choose the social network you want people to share your content on.

3) Fill in the blanks.

4) Download a social button icon.

5) Make the icons clickable using your share link.

By using the right sharing buttons to help you see which social network is most popular among your audience, you’re going to understand your community better. Who knows? There may be a strong niche community reading your content in a social network you’re not actively engaging. These are a community manager’s dream gems to find!

Why Use Trackable Follow Buttons

Do you know, off the top of your head, how many social followers your site got for you this week? If your follow buttons were trackable, you’d be able to get this number without much digging in your analytics. And wouldn’t it rock to be able to tell your teammates you know that most of your Instagram followers came from your site? (This happened to us, actually!) As a community manager, this is the type of understanding that’ll open your eyes into exactly how your audience is engaging with your content. Discover which social networks your audience is most engaged with, and how your site is helping you drive engagement off your domain with trackable follow buttons.

Why Us Trackable Chatbots

Don’t lift a finger and still deal with your enquiries 24/7

The next big thing to hit SME’s is Chatbots Using Artificial Intelegence.
The number 1 complaint about launching and running a online business or attracting responses to a posting is generating enough enquiries to make a sale or even responding to all the enquiries within 24 hours.!

Chatbots can assist you and there is “No Need To Lift a Finger Because some of the Proven System Will Do The Work And Get You More Leads!”
The data coming out now is that more and more people are moving to online communications and shows that you need to start leveraging Chatbots to streamline customer communications, problem solving and sales.
Individuals are using messaging Chatbots for many different reasons. However, the key things your customers want from any communication is quick response, help with there enquiry, ability to make appointments or make a purchase or have a problem attended to quickly.

Why Use Trackable URLs

You can automatically generate unique hashes appended to all of your site’s pages to help you generate unique links that you can then use to push to social. Address bar sharing adds a unique set of characters to the very end of your URL that will make that URL unique. (And don’t worry, this will not negatively affect your SEO.)

The reason you’ll want to do this is if you’re trying to monitor how the same content performs on different social networks, and which messaging performed best on the same topic.

There’s nothing more frustrating than spending so much time creating awesome content, and having tons of Tweets, tiktok and instagram out there to drive traffic to your pages, and then not being able to tell which phrasing or timing actually worked best.

Go beyond the pageviews and visits by making all your site’s URLs generate uniquely. You’ll then even be able to catch where a big segment of your traffic came from.

How to embed a tweet using the Twitter website

Open Twitter in a web browser, log in if necessary, and find the tweet you want to embed.

Click the three dots at the top right of the tweet.

In the dropdown menu, choose “Embed Tweet.”

The Twitter Publish page should appear. …

When you’re done, click “Update.”

How to embed a tweet on a website using Twitter’s embed tool

Why Use Analytics

Tying all of that data together into an easy-to-read dashboard is usually the hardest part of a community manager’s job, but lucky for you, AddThis’ dashboard pulls all of this information for you in one place.

The dashboard lays out in crisp and clear graphics how all of your audience members engaged with your site, which tools they used to engage, and which content they liked the most.

Know exactly which social network is growing the most from your site, and which is being shared to the most. Know all this by just scanning your dashboard (without drowning in search queries and exported spreadsheets).

Communication

Good communication actually consists of many different sub-skills, from appropriate patterns of body language and eye contact to the ability to write clear and accurate reports. Accurate listening and the ability to follow instructions are especially important but are often ignored or taken for granted. 

Many people simply do not pay close attention to what others communicate and fail to ask follow-up questions to understand fully. As a result, individuals act on their own inaccurate assumptions and create inefficiencies and frustrations at work. If you can really listen, your work will be a cut above many of your peers.

• Ability to Follow Instructions

• Investigation

• Attention to Detail

Empathy

Being an empathetic individual comes naturally to some, but is less natural to others. Behaving with empathy is more than feeling bad for someone who’s sad, or sharing in someone else’s joy. It means being able to step into someone else’s world to understand not just what their point of view is, but also to understand why they have that point of view.

The Secret of How Rock Star Advisors can Help Your Business Grow by Diane Shawe


A lot of people refer to them as Influencers today but here’s a little secret that can help you raise your status or even attract funding to help you successfully grow your business, So what’s the secret? find and
leverage mentors and advisors.

You might think this is odd and not doable, but think about it, this is a win win senerio.

So, who or what are advisors?

Advisors are successful people that you respect and that agree to help your company. Advisors are generally successful and/or retired executives, business owners, service providers, professors, or others that could help your business.

Advisors generally will not cost you any money (you don’t pay them), although I do recommend giving
them stock options to incentivise them to contribute as much as possible. But one of the benefits to them is that they also need referrals and new clients.

Getting advisors is not a requirement for raising money, but they have multiple benefits as follows:

  1. Practice: if you can’t successfully pitch an advisor to invest time in your business, then you’re not
    going to successfully pitch anyone to invest money in your business. So, practice your pitch on
    prospective advisors first, and use that practice to perfect it.
  2. Connections to capital and more: as successful individuals, advisors often have the ability to
    invest directly in your company; and/or they tend to have large, high quality networks of
    individuals they can introduce you to. Likewise the right mentors and advisors can connect you with
    key strategic partners, employees and customers.
  3. Credibility: having quality advisors gives your company instant credibility in the eyes of investors,
    partners, customers, etc., can build enormous credibility.
  4. Operational success: Having Advisors with whom you can discuss key business matters as you grow your venture will help ensure you make the right decisions,
    particularly if they have encountered and dealt with the same challenges already in their careers.
