Dr. Barnard also warns against potential threats to the brain, including medications, drug interactions, sleep deprivation and physical conditions that can put your memory at risk.

Dr. Barnard provides viewers with the researched-backed information, giving them the power to protect their memory, beyond simply "waiting and seeing."

    U.S. Supreme Court On Cellphone Searches By Law Enforcement
    In a collision of the law and technology, the U.S. Supreme Court will on Tuesday hear arguments stemming from two cases, one in California, about whether police should be able to conduct warrantless searches of cellphone contents after an arrest. Law enforcement officials say it helps to solve crimes. Civil libertarians and privacy advocates say it violates the 4th amendment's ban on unreasonable searches and seizures. Fifty percent of Americans now carry smartphones loaded with personal data such as text messages, addresses and photos.

As a kid, he weathered physical abuse from his father, discrimination by local police, and efforts by a racist landlord to evict his family from their apartment. He shaped those experiences into a long-running one man show "Not A Genuine Black Man." The tenth anniversary production opens at Berkeley Rep this week and runs through May. Copeland sat down with Scott Shafer to talk about the show, his comedy, and life on the outside looking in.
