Reilly and Dr. Kurt Wagner with a discussion on plastic surgery.October 28, 1970 and December 12, 1972 were milestones in the history of U.S. television by giving viewers a look at the extreme makeover (show a photo of how the person used to look three months before, then allow that person to appear after healing from the plastic surgery). These appearances were responsible for loosening the restrictions on doctors that used to label these appearances as "self-aggrandizement."You can find Dr. Wagner's website at DrKurtWagner.com https://sites.google.com/site/bicoastaldoctor/ ====The need for Maverick Mentors in educationDaniel Amen in Magnificent Mind at Any Age devotes Chapter 16 to "maverick thinking," which he defines as having four traits:1. Independent thinking2. No accepting the norm just because it is the norm3. Creativity or thining in a way that is different from others'4. A passionate belief that you can make a difference.p. 243, Magnificent Mind at Any Age (2008) by Daniel Amen We should encourage these traits in students and ask them to pursue the "Seven Survival Skills" described by Tony Wagner and p21.org. One of the key skills is "critical thinking" and another is "creativity." Sometimes it takes interaction with a pioneer to spark that awareness in the student: "Hey, I wonder what I could do that is independent? Maybe I can be like Dr. Wagner."
