    Globe Trekker [#1623H] Tough Trains: India's Independence Railroads In this episode of Tough Trains, Zay Harding takes on an epic journey across one of the world's biggest railway networks.

The railway tracks are some of the oldest and longest you'll find anywhere in the world, and train travel doesn't get any tougher than this in a country with a population of over 1.2 billion. Indian Railways operations cover 29 states and seven union territories. It's now the world's fourth largest railway network, comprising 71,000 miles of track over a route of 40,000 miles. duration 57:25   STEREO TVPG

    Better Brain Solution with Steven Masley, Md In The Better Brain Solution with Dr. Steven Masley, Dr. Masley informs us of the two urgent epidemics we are facing now--escalating rates of disabling memory loss and rapidly increasing rates of diabetes and pre-diabetes--and yet both conditions are largely preventable. Most people today understand the effect that elevated blood sugar has on their cardiovascular health, but few understand that insulin resistance is significantly damaging to the brain. In the The Better Brain Solution, Dr. Masley offers a program that, in the fight against diabetes, memory loss, and cognitive decline, can reverse insulin resistance, enhance cognitive performance, and stop cognitive decline before it is too late. Dr. Masley gives the viewers the tools he has developed for his own private patients to prevent and reverse this metabolic syndrome. He explores the impact of insulin resistance on the brain and the heart/brain/diabetes connection, explaining how cognitive function and memory work. The Better Brain Solution offers the viewer a comprehensive plan for achieving optimal brain health, providing information on brain-boosting foods and supplements as well as providing a practical way to assess cognitive function. duration 1:56:58   STEREO TVG

    Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06   STEREO TVG
