Invest in Robots (15:28) Nikolaus Correll, an Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder.  Everyone thought that by the year 2017 we would have some time of Jetson Utopia where we would have personal robots and super advanced technology.  I even thought we might have some robots to replace our student producers.  But the fact of the matter is we are not there yet but are we moving in the right direction?  Nikolaus Correll explains his ideas about the economy and how robots can help in the future. Benefits of Weight Training (1:05:54) Brad Schoenfeld, PhD, CSCS, FNSCA, is an assistant professor in the exercise science department for Lehman College and is the director of their human performance laboratory. Dr. Schoenfeld's research focuses on muscular adaptations associated with the manipulation of resistance training variables.  In our regular exercise regimes, resistance or weight training is sometimes thought best left to the professionals. In reality, this type of training has many benefits, especially as our bodies age. When we grow older, our bones tend to become less dense and our ligaments weaker. Strength training counters these effects and can have more physical and emotional benefits than we could ever imagine. Brad Schoenfeld explains why weightlifting is so good for your health.
