2Day FM Niagara rebrands… Sort of

IMG_20160720_121906_01

On Friday July 15 2Day FM Niagara rebranded 101.1 FM to Juice FM. Previously 2Day aired on both 101.1 and 105.1FM. Vista had been told at one point by the CRTC to separate the signal and operate two separate stations because technically both frequencies are licensed for different areas. I’m not sure if the flip is related to that or they decided to make the change for other reasons.

Performing At Your Best by Paul Kaye

PaulKayImage

Our connected world is a huge distraction to us. We all know that. We all know that we have become addicted to knowing what is happening in the world. Many of us get anxiety at the thought of being disconnected. We need to invest in ‘quality thinking time’. Time where we can be alone with ourselves and our thoughts. Clarity comes in these moments — our mind is able to surface the deep thoughts that are usually suppressed by the noise generated by our connected world. When we have time alone with our thoughts we are able to do deeper problem solving and creative work. High performance requires some time alone – disconnected from the world – to focus on the important tasks at hand. Plan some time each week, often early in the day and at the start of the week (cause our energies are higher after the recharging that takes place on the weekends). During this time turn off all distractions.

The talk show host in the 1-3 pm slot M-F has in recent months had his show repeated daily from 6- 8 pm. So one would assume he had been held in somewhat high esteem.
