Cancer

Wednesday Sep 10 2008

   By Vince DiBianca | Bio
Over the last year or two, I’ve found myself surrounded by family and friends who have been diagnosed with cancer of different forms. I’d say the number amounts to a dozen people. Of these, only two are in remission (breast cancer and testicular cancer). Six have passed away (after lengthy chemo/radiation) and the remaining four are in the midst of their “battle”, as it’s put. These are, seemingly, not great odds of survival.[Read More]

Health - Who's on First?

Wednesday Jun 13 2007

Like many, I’ve heard both sides of the ‘Cooking and Freezing in Plastic’ debate. A good friend recently sent me an email warning of the dangers of “microwaving and freezing food in plastic containers” accompanied with supportive research. Another friend responded by saying that the ‘authorities’ (including the FDA and Johns Hopkins University) say that Rubbermaid®, Tupperware®, plastic cookware and food wrap sold for home use have been thoroughly tested, only tiny traces of a plasticizer have been found, and even that is not an endocrine disrupter. This set off a productive dialogue about who to believe about what.

Being a Grandparent

Wednesday Jan 10 2007



By Vincent DiBianca

Bio
When I was a little kid, my picture of "grandpop" was of a little old guy with spectacles, stooped posture, a little paunch, a distinctive limp and false teeth. My grandfather often brought a smile and a wink with him, but he wasn't particularly able to relate to me. I recall we sometimes played checkers or cards; however, I don't remember doing anything special with him. We never went off exploring together (except for an occasional movie). He seemed more interested in assigning me chores (and imposing discipline) than teaching me values and how to think. Grandpa was a part of my life, but he was actually more of a babysitter than anything else.[Read More]

Balancing Priorities

Wednesday Dec 06 2006



By Vince DiBianca

Bio
I've noticed I'm feeling a certain dynamic tension between two opposing forces. On one hand, I'm committed to going out in the world and maximizing the difference I can make. In my 60s, that continues to be a significant priority. On the other hand, I'd like to play more, visit with my family and work in my woodshop. And that too is a priority.[Read More]

Choices

Wednesday Nov 08 2006



By Vincent DiBianca

Bio
Regarding aging, health and well-being—I find myself interacting with people who live in two worlds. Many of my friends take medication (particularly antibiotics for loads of ailments), undergo surgery, eat what they want, rarely exercise and several smoke. Other friends (although fewer in number) believe that the body can heal itself inside out, eat nutritionally (organic foods, vegan or vegetarian), meditate and exercise regularly, take vitamins, supplements and healing herbs, don't smoke and would only consider surgery as the single last resort, if at all.[Read More]

Fear

Wednesday Oct 04 2006



By Vincent DiBianca

Bio
A year or so ago, a few colleagues and I started to write a book about the second half of life and how people could live a full and fulfilling life until the day they die. The treatise was that, in many ways, the second half could clearly surpass the quality of experiences in the first half. I saw in my own life and those around me profound examples of people 40 and older reinventing their careers, physical condition and relationships.[Read More]

My friend Vince is a high-energy, 61-year-old guy with many fascinating work and play interests. Most of his work life has been dedicated to coaching high-performing executives. Vince shares my committment to a “green planet”, and he’s currently investing in and working with difference-making companies like alternative energy companies.

He’s spent significant time and care in designing his work, play, home, relationships, health and life in general in a way that really works for himself and his loved ones. Blessed with wonderfully supportive relationships, he’s now totally overwhelmed with the pleasures of being a granddad.

Vince’s latest undertaking is an experiment to live well beyond 100 in a healthy and vital way. We look forward to hearing more from him …
