No, Donald Trump, The Clinton Foundation Should Not Shut Down

Since Monday, Donald Trump and his campaign surrogates have issued a series of statements demanding that the Clinton Foundation close its doors, and return its donations. In addition to drawing blood from his political rival, Trump’s latest cry for attention perfectly fits into his narrative of a rigged political system shortchanging real Americans. To most Americans following this election cycle, the Clinton Foundation has represented an enigma onto which pundits can express their love, hatred, or ambivalence towards Hillary Clinton. But as a medical student who has extensively researched global health issues, it is clear to me that this organization deserves a more meaningful conversation, weighing the impact it has on the millions of lives it helps everyday against its tangible shortcomings.

I first heard about the Clinton Foundation not from the talking heads of cable television, but instead inside of a classroom in graduate school, while taking a course on applying cost-effectiveness analysis studies in healthcare. Working in groups of three, our final project was to conduct a study of our own, comparing a set of health interventions to address a disease against each other – based on how well they tended to work, and their cost. My team focused on assessing treatment strategies intended to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV in South Africa. Each strategy involved varying degrees of diagnostic testing during pregnancy, and the provision of antiretroviral drugs to all pregnant women who tested positive for HIV. The prices for the necessary drugs used in these interventions were negotiated by an affiliate of the Clinton Foundation called the Clinton Health Access Initiative, or CHAI.

CHAI’s role in this case wasn’t one of a typical charity, in which money is collected and distributed to worthy causes. Instead, it acted as a facilitator, working with governments and pharmaceutical companies to strike a fair price for the people who depend on antiretroviral drug therapies to treat their HIV. If it were not for CHAI and its collaboration with a range of stakeholders, the results of our analysis would have wildly changed, and kept important medications needed to halt HIV epidemics financially out of reach for local governments. The Clinton Foundation’s work literally changed the calculus of tackling an issue as formidable as an HIV/AIDS epidemic spread across a continent; today, its efforts facilitate HIV drug treatments for over eleven million people in the developing world.

This is a story which often repeats itself across the Clinton Foundation and its work in global health, climate change, and promoting girls’ education, among other causes – of networking with private and public sector actors, and infusing technical expertise, to face complex challenges. Within an organization of its scope, there will undoubtedly be issues of transparency which merit discussion. But to casually suggest that a foundation which so deeply touches the lives of millions should close its doors is a privileged and myopic claim to make.

Perhaps what is most frightening about these latest statements made by the Trump campaign is the chord it has struck among so many. Those who tepidly agree with Trump have converged onto the idea that donors with altruistic intentions can pick another charity or foundation to support “for the next four or eight years,” but this solution is incredibly naïve, and neglects the Clinton Foundation’s unique role among stakeholders addressing issues in areas like global health today. I challenge anyone to find another foundation that works across a multitude of issues, and has built strong relationships with a range of public and private sector actors driven by a mission of pragmatism.

Make no mistake, Hillary Clinton and her campaign have questions to answer when it comes to conflicts of interest entangled within her tenure as our nation’s chief diplomat. Trump’s solution to this concern, however, is not a sensible one. In an election cycle this morbid, organizations like the Clinton Foundation do the work of projecting a positive image of the United States to many corners of the globe. Rather than shut down it, we need more organizations like it – ones which value inventing out-of-the-box solutions for helping those in need.

We Must Learn to Tell Narratives That Make Us Better – Not Divide Us

By Bruce Janz
UCF Forum columnist

Every four years we turn to our TVs and online sites to cheer on competitors vying for supremacy in an arena where the rules are often unclear and scandal is rife. We hope for an uplifting narrative that shows the best of who we can be, which gives us all something to strive for, but more often than not the narrative degenerates into stories that divide us.

No, I’m not talking about the presidential race. I’m talking about the Summer Olympics. And the narratives I’m interested in are not the ones created by the athletes themselves, but rather by the media.

The Nielsen ratings for this year’s Olympics were down about 17 percent from the London Games in 2012. There are many possible reasons – Americans might prefer watching the games in another English-speaking country; people are watching on screens that Nielsen has a harder time tracking; interest in the Olympics among younger viewers has been waning; television watching in general has declined, especially among younger viewers.

NBC has the contract for Olympic coverage, both summer and winter games until 2032, to the tune of $ 12 billion. And it has contracts guaranteeing to advertisers a household percentage rating in the high teens during prime time. It averaged a 15.4 rating, lower than hoped for, although the night that Usain Bolt won gold in the 100 meters and Simone Biles won gold in the vault, the rating went up to 17.4.

Ratings are obviously about money, but I am more interested in the kinds of narratives that seem to draw those ratings. In the United States we love to see stories of those overcoming personal challenges or hardship to win. We generally love to see winners win more, at least if we like them as people – that is if they are great characters.

NBC’s strategy for coverage has been controversial for some. It has emphasized the human drama, even the reality-show nature of the competitions, as opposed to the sports themselves. Scandal sells, as does a recognizable cast of characters fitting defined roles.

They have been criticized for diminishing the significance of the successes of women and racial minorities. These narratives, in other words, can have an inertia to them, and can be slow to change to recognize new characters and new audiences. Simone Manuel’s gold medal in the 100 meter freestyle swimming event is a narrative full of significance, but only if we recognize that it happened against the background of racial exclusion in the United States.

Mount Olympus was where the gods of the ancient Greeks lived. More importantly, it was the focal point for their myths. We think of myths as stories that aren’t true, but in fact, myths are stories that make sense of our world, that help us to give a narrative to our world. They help to tell us who is friend and who is foe, what happens if we stray too far from the accepted practices of our people, and how the world is put into the order it has. We might think that we now have science, and so we don’t need these myths. But in fact we now just tell myths about science, as well as about everything else.

These myths we have are not just hard-wired into our culture. They are repeated over and over in different ways, and that makes them seem natural, but what they really are is familiar and comforting. In a world of uncertainty, it is good to see Michael Phelps and Simone Biles do exactly what we expected they would do.

But being open to new narratives, even ones that do not fit our comfortable patterns, are absolutely essential. Simone Manuel’s medal brings up narratives of race in the United States. Non-African-Americans must find space for those narratives as well, not just as another gold medal but as a triumph over racial barriers.

For the first time ever, the International Olympic Committee decided to honor the competitive spirit of refugees by allowing them to compete without a country. We must be able to honor their ability to rise above their circumstances, but then also include in the narrative the question of why these capable people ended up as refugees in the first place, and how our refugee policies could improve the lives of those like them. We need to be open to Muslim women competing in hijabs – their athleticism is the real story.

So Gabby Douglas didn’t hold her hand over her heart during the national anthem. There is no rule, and many other athletes didn’t do it at other times. But there was a narrative, a myth about what makes a real American, and for some people, at least, her little action in that moment was enough to question her loyalty. Years of dedication on her part apparently meant nothing in comparison to that action.

Our narratives define us, but we have to do better on telling which ones make us better and which just diminish us.

And, we have to do better on listening and hearing new narratives, those that matter to others around us, rather than just fitting their stories into the ones we already have. We’re all richer when we can empathize with these stories.

This Pic Proves Simone Biles Is A Mere Mortal After All

For two weeks Simone Biles took the Olympic stage and proved to the world she is not one of us.

Some might call her god-like ― since she can do things like this… 

And this…

And this…

Did we mention she won five Olympic medals? And that four were gold? That would be the most gold medals won by a U.S. gymnast ever.  

So we extend a hearty thank you to Aly Raisman for snapping this photo and posting it to Instagram earlier this week, proving that at the end of the day (and sometimes sooner), the amazing Simone Biles is a mere mortal, just like the rest of us:

Miss @simonebiles fell asleep before we took off. WHO'S THE GRANDMA NOW GUYS

A photo posted by Alexandra Raisman (@alyraisman) on

The photo shows Biles snoozing on the plane ride back from Rio de Janeiro “before we took off,” according to Raisman’s caption.

“WHO’S THE GRANDMA NOW GUYS,” Raisman added.

Science says catching those Zs are one of the smartest ways for Biles to spend her time after all that record breaking in Rio.

Sleep helps athletes recover physically after a hard workout or Olympic competition, Henri Tuomilehto, clinical director at Oivauni Sleep Clinics in Finland, previously told The Huffington Post.

“Most of muscle recovery happens during sleep ― not lying on the couch watching TV,” he said.

Research also shows sleep helps you manage stress, think clearly so you can make better decisions, focus, be more creative and better learn new things. And it brings a plethora of health benefits, like helping reduce your risk of heart disease and obesity.

What’s more, sleep experts say you can get some of those benefits from even just a 20-minute snooze. (Though it’s important to mention that napping doesn’t necessarily make up for a bad night’s sleep.)

A caveat: chances are most of us can’t sleep long enough to do this:

Big Soda Spends Millions On ‘Unethical’ San Francisco Area Ads Fighting Drink Taxes

SAN FRANCISCO — The beverage industry is spending millions to fight Bay Area proposals that would tax sugary drinks. Meanwhile, vastly outspent supporters of soda taxes are wielding new data they say shows taxes reduce consumption of drinks linked to childhood obesity and diabetes. 

As the region once again becomes a battleground over soda and sugary drinks, residents in San Francisco, Oakland and the small city of Albany will vote separately in November on proposals that would add a 1-cent per ounce tax on sweetened beverages. 

The well-funded beverage industry has reserved roughly $ 9.5 million in television ad time before Election Day, and has already spent $ 1 million on commercials in the Bay Area, Joe Arellano, a spokesman for groups opposing taxes, told HuffPost. 

That could be trouble for soda tax supporters, who complain that the industry has bombarded voters with dishonest messages. Recent campaign spending reports showed the industry had spent $ 747,267 in Oakland, for example, compared with $ 23,297 by tax proponents. 

Oakland voters have received multiple mailings that label the soda tax proposition a “grocery tax”  that will raise prices across the board at supermarkets. Instead of hitting shoppers with a steep increase only on sugary drinks, commercials featuring local shopkeepers say they’ll spread the cost around to staples like milk, bread and produce. 

“It’s an incredibly painful and unethical lie,” said Oakland Councilwoman Rebecca Kaplan. “People worry about having to pay for their groceries. To threaten that their groceries are going to be taxed when it’s not true is a totally despicable tactic from the soda industry.”

There’s nothing untrue about it, according to Arellano. “Those businesses have shown repeatedly that they will pass on those costs to their consumers,” he said. 

Elected officials in Oakland, led by Vice Mayor Annie Campbell-Washington, vowed in July to fight Big Soda’s commercials and mailings by filing complaints with the Federal Communications Commission and the city’s Public Ethics Commission. Her office ignored repeated inquiries from HuffPost about whether the threat was carried out.

FCC and Public Ethics Commission spokesmen told HuffPost they had no open investigations into the “grocery tax” campaigns, but were barred from saying whether they had received any complaints about them. 

Berkeley became the first city in the U.S. to impose a soda tax in 2014. An attempt that year in San Francisco failed to gain the two-thirds majority needed to become law. This year’s measure requires a simple majority of San Franciscans because of a modification in how tax revenue would be spent. Philadelphia became the biggest city to enact a soda tax in June.

An encouraging sign to Bay Area soda tax supporters is that Berkeley’s tax is having a greater impact than initially expected. 

Consumption of soda, energy drinks and other taxed items fell by 21 percent in some neighborhoods after the tax took effect, according to research published Tuesday in the American Journal of Public Health. That’s double the 10 percent drop researchers had expected, according to Pat Crawford, a University of California-Berkeley professor.

Shoppers reported drinking 63 percent more water, according to surveys from a team led by University of California-Berkeley researchers. At the same time, consumers in Oakland and San Francisco increased their consumption of soda and other sweet beverages by 4 percent, researchers found. 

The tax “is the single most important way” to deter people from drinking too much soda or iced tea, said Crawford.

Arellano, the soda industry spokesman, said the study was flawed. Survey participants in Berkeley had higher incomes and education levels than counterparts in Oakland and San Francisco, factors that may account for different behavior, he said. 

Barry Popkin, a University of North Carolina professor who supports soda taxes as a tool to improve public health, said the income and education levels of Berkeley residents may produce larger results than in cities with different demographics.

Benefits like less tooth decay and weight gain would appear several years after launching a tax, Popkin said. Changes would be more dramatic if the taxes were higher, he said. 

Other attempts to steer people away from soda are underway in the Bay Area. 

A law that would require warning labels in advertising for sugary drinks, similar to warnings on cigarette ads, was supposed to take effect in San Francisco on July 25, but is tied up in court. It’s the first such law in the country.

“We know we’re at the front lines here and we know what the stakes are,” said Larry Tramutola, a consultant organizing support for the taxes in San Francisco and Oakland. “The soda industry is doing everything they can to try and defeat these.”

    GOP Climate Denier To Celebrate Park Service Centennial Amid Melting Glaciers

    Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), a self-proclaimed climate change “skeptic,” is scheduled to visit Montana’s Glacier National Park on Thursday in celebration of the National Park Service’s 100th birthday.

    Daines, who would deny that humans are responsible for drastic, well-documented environmental changes at the park, will be surrounded by magnificent mountain peaks and rapidly melting glaciers.

    Daines’ office announced his trip in an email advisory Wednesday, saying the senator would join other Instagram users at a park “InstaMeet,” an event that brings park visitors together to “make friends, take photos, and exchange ideas.”

    The idea that man-made climate change is fueling the retreat of the park’s namesake glaciers, however, is likely not something Daines will be entertaining. 

    In a 2014 interview with Montana Public Radio, Daines said “the jury is still out” about whether fossil fuels contribute to climate change. He said he’s seen “very good data” suggesting there are other contributing factors, including solar cycles. 

    “Climate change,” Daines told the radio station, “is very real. The climate is always changing, it’s either warming or it’s cooling. The climate is dynamic, it’s not static … I think the question certainly is what part does man-made climate change factor [into] this equation, certainly with CO2 and greenhouse gases. And I think there’s just still reasonable debate here, whether or not it is a significant part of this or not.”

    That kind of comment makes most climate scientists cringe. Studies suggest that 97 percent or more of scientists who are actively publishing research believe climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities.

    A visit to Glacier National Park is a front-row seat to the severity of the problem. In 1850, there were roughly 150 glaciers in the area. Today, there are just 25, many “mere remnants of what they once were,” according to the National Park Service. 

    “If the current rate of warming persists, scientists predict the glaciers in Glacier National Park will be completely gone by the year 2030, if not earlier,” the park service writes on its website.

    In a Facebook Live interview with The Huffington Post this week, Bill Nye “The Science Guy” said that during a recent trip to Glacier, park rangers told him they expect all the glaciers to be gone in five or six years.

    “So it will be Sandy Hillside National Park,” Nye joked.

    For anyone who runs into Daines on Thursday, ask if he’s concerned about the park losing the glaciers that have carved its landscape and have drawn more than 100 million visitors.

    Daines’ office did not respond to The Huffington Post’s request for comment Wednesday.

    In April, Daines was among more than two dozen Republican senators who asked Secretary of State John Kerry to cut funding for the United States’ involvement in United Nations effort to address climate change.

    Two Keys Why You Don’t Receive & How to Shift It!

    Have you ever wondered why you struggle receiving the things you want? I see this a lot in my coaching practice and with my students. In fact, I would say that receiving is one of the key issues most people face. I would like to share with you some thoughts that might help you break out of this painful cycle.

    Here are the two core reasons I’ve seen over and over again that shut people down to receiving:

    1. We are brought up to believe that receiving is wrong. For some, this belief stems in religion, and for others it begins in the home.

    There is a tendency in religion to push the belief that being of service means you must deny yourself. In other words, don’t receive. But when you live by this belief, you shut down to taking the time to go within and connect to God. This is where you get the guidance you need to live life in the flow with grace and ease.

    Even if your family wasn’t religious, you might have been brought up in a home in which your mom and dad gave themselves up to take care of your needs. They set the example that it wasn’t okay to receive. This is why it’s so important for parents to love themselves. They don’t realize that they are perpetuating a cycle of pain for their kids to grow up and do the same.

    2. Feeling bad about one’s self is the second reason most people don’t receive. If you have beliefs, whether conscious or hidden, that tell you something is wrong with you or that you have to act a certain way to receive, you’ll stay shut down to having miracles show up. This is why it’s so important to do the inner work of cleaning up subconscious beliefs. As you chip away at each of them and raise your Worthiness Quotient to inner abundance, you attract outer abundance and miracles.

    I share a story of Cassie in my book, The Enlightened Mom, and her awakening to the importance of receiving. Cassie had attended my weekly live Enlightened Mom class, focusing on helping the ladies release subconscious beliefs so they could finally love themselves unconditionally and open up to receive. From the very first session, most of the moms were having breakthroughs and seeing miracles show up in their daily lives. But Cassie was different. She was mired in the negativity of her mind and really struggled with receiving.

    For the last session of our class, we went to a local bookstore and sat on the patio. I invited the ladies to take a moment and go within to get grounded and connected to God before going into the store. Their mission was to allow God to guide them and to open up to receive a message.

    Cassie was the first one back to the patio! With tear-filled eyes and joy that was palpable, she shared the incredible messages she received, one after the other from the pages of a book she had been guided to pick up. Cassie exclaimed, “I get it now! I used to ask God for guidance and would get so angry because I never got answers. Now I realize the messages were always there. All I had to do was give myself permission to open up and receive them!”

    Cassie had been mired in false beliefs about receiving. She gradually chipped away at some of those beliefs during our class. But it wasn’t until that day at the bookstore that she finally realized a huge truth:

    You are the one who determines whether you receive.


    2016-08-24-1472065296-5598401-15278638_s.jpg

    Are you like Cassie was? Are you shut down to receiving the love, guidance and support you seek to make life a joyful flow?

    If your answer is yes, it is time to look within. Do you have religious programming that says to be of service you must not receive? Or did you grow up in a family in which your parents put themselves on the backburner, giving you an example that this is love?

    To be able to give freely, you must learn to receive. You can’t truly be of service if you’re coming from an empty cup.

    Here are three simple steps to open up to receive:

    1. Give yourself permission to receive. You are the boss of your life. If you’re not receiving a life of grace and ease, it’s because you’re still making others the authority of your life.

    2. Take time daily to connect. Spend time in meditation, prayer, journaling or whatever works for you, but by all means, connect. This is a powerful way to set your inner compass to receiving.

    3. Be you! Pay attention to when you shut down your voice, your feelings and your needs. Then give yourself permission to share these things. If you struggle with this, go within and clean up the beliefs that stop you down. By loving yourself unconditionally, you send out an energetic message to the universe that says, “I deserve to receive simply for being me!”

    Receiving is the loving thing to do. As you transition into this new belief, you will feel loved, guided and supported. You will shift from lack to abundance. And your life will flow magically with grace and ease.

    Receiving is an act of service.

    As you give yourself permission to receive, your cup will be so full that you’ll want everyone else to feel the way you do. You’ll serve others by lifting them up. You’ll want to give like never before. Your life will be your greatest act of service.

    Afternoon Slump Got You Down? There’s A Nap For That

    There’s a reason you, like clockwork, feel sluggish when 3 p.m. rolls around each day. Scientists call it the circadian dip, and it happens because our bodies regulate periods of wakefulness and sleepiness, the latter of which peaks for most adults during the nighttime hours of 2 and 4 a.m., and the daytime hours of 1 and 3 p.m.

    The good news? There’s an easy solution. We’ve partnered with Sleep Number to get to the bottom of the #PowerOfSleep. Check out the video below to learn more.

    Just like diet and exercise, sleep is unique to each person and important for optimal health. Sleep Number® beds adjust on each side to your ideal level of firmness, comfort and support — your Sleep Number® setting. And when you add SleepIQ® technology you’ll know what to adjust for your best possible sleep.

    Congress must take action to block weapon sales to Saudi Arabia

    Last week, the Pentagon announced the approval of the sale of an additional $ 1.15 billion worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia. The callousness of this announcement – just days after Saudi Arabia rebooted its devastating bombing campaign in Yemen – is breathtaking. The Saudi-led coalition has used American-made fighter jets, bombs and other munitions in a relentless onslaught against Yemen that has left thousands of innocent civilians dead and created a humanitarian crisis that the United Nations characterizes as a “catastrophe.” In just the last few days, the Saudi-led coalition has killed at least 35 people – most of them women and children – in three airstrikes against a school, a residential neighborhood and a hospital in northern Yemen.
    Congress has thirty days to block the sale of these weapons. It is a moral imperative that they do so.

    The internal crisis in Yemen spiraled out of control when the Saudis intervened in March 2015. The BBC has reported that nearly all of the more than 3,000 civilian deaths reported in the conflict have been caused by airstrikes from the Saudi-led coalition. Saudi air strikes have also decimated Yemen’s infrastructure, leaving more than 21 million people desperately in need of humanitarian assistance.
    The Saudi aggression is only possible with U.S. weapons and logistical support. The U.S. government has authorized the sale of $ 20 billion of American-made weapons to the Saudis since their offensive began 18 months ago. Sen.Chris Murphy says this makes the U.S. complicit in a humanitarian crisis. “If you talk to Yemeni Americans, they will tell you in Yemen this isn’t a Saudi bombing campaign, it’s a U.S. bombing campaign,” said Sen. Murphy. “Every single civilian death inside Yemen is attributable to the United States.”

    Given the devastation of the attack on Yemen, a diverse group of organizations and individuals have called on the U.S. government to stop the sale of additional weapons to Saudi Arabia. The United Nations has said that Saudi air strikes on civilian targets likely constitute war crimes. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have called for an end of all weapon sales to Saudi Arabia until the crisis is resolved. Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy and Republican Sen.Rand Paul have both voiced concern over the new weapon sales, with Paul stating “Saudi Arabia is an unreliable ally with a poor human rights record. We should not rush to sell them advanced arms and promote an arms race in the Middle East.”

    Some would argue that the Saudis are a long-time stable ally in the turbulent Middle East. But to paraphrase the cliché, with allies like these, who needs enemies? Saudi Arabia is the number one exporter of radical Islamic extremism on the planet. Fifteen of the nineteen 9/11 hijackers were radicalized Saudi citizens and the recently declassified “28 pages” showed that a Saudi intelligence officer supplied the men with money, housing and training to carry out their attack. The Saudis oppress religious minorities, women, LGBT people and dissidents, and dozens of non-violent participants in Arab Spring protests face or have been executed, usually by beheading. Yet the United States continues its unquestioning support of this repressive, totalitarian regime.

    In approving the sale of these weapons, the Obama Administration has abdicated responsibility for ensuring that the United States is not complicit in war crimes. Now it is up to Congress to stop this ill-conceived arms deal from going through. For the sake of the millions of displaced Yemenis still suffering through air strikes and thousands more innocent civilians who could be slaughtered with these weapons, I’m pleading that they do so.

    The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs.

Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

    American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072.

    American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible.

    The Reservoir

    Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced. ~ James Baldwin

    I totally agree with James Baldwin. Thus, when we only exist, we inadvertently choose not to live. And so, to live, we must first breathe…freely, releasing all toxins from within and outside.

    Life is a reservoir of discoveries, hopes, dreams, love, adventures, and experiences. Therefore, there will always be in the air, joy and/or sadness, love and/or hate… The energy we choose to inhale becomes us. To survive, we must make no room for weaknesses, hate, procrastination, insecurities, ego, jealousy, fear, or confusion. When we do, we should strive not to dwell in any of these negative energies. It can be destructive.

    We get to live once…die once. But, each day, we are given the opportunity to nurture love.

    Our steps are directed by our thoughts. We should therefore, take responsibility for our thoughts and actions, and not blame the devil, or others. When we do (take responsibility, that is), we start to embrace life, fully, with open arms, with our eyes and hearts open, and our heads intact.

    Know how to clean blocked arteries? I believe you start by getting rid of the bad cholesterol.

    Therefore, in other to:
    • Live: Take one breath at a time
    • Solve problems: Take a bite out of one problem at a time
    • Move: Take one step at a time to reach a destination
    • Speak: Bite down on your words before you spit them out. Once you spit them out,
    you cannot swallow them.
    • Grow: Make no room for negativity, or those people, toxic in mind and spirit. Endeavor to constantly detox your inner circle.
    • Smile/Laugh Out Loud: Count your blessings, one-by-one, and be thankful…always.

    Life is a journey. Sometimes, our directions are changed by storms, our dreams are delayed or stillborn, not to discourage us, but to take us to our destined destinations, at the appointed times. And, sometimes, we are submerged, not to be drowned, but to be cleansed, and be rejuvenated. Last, but not the least, sometimes, we are broken, only to be made whole. We experience life (hopefully we learn the lessons it is meant to teach us) in other to live it…to the fullest. Know your purpose in life, and be determined to fulfill it.

    Mom’s Viral Post Slams People Who Think C-Sections Are ‘The Easy Way Out’

    A Missouri mom’s viral post is tearing down some ridiculous misconceptions about C-section births.

    On Aug. 19, Raye Lee, who gave birth to her son Roxas via C-section just five days earlier, posted photos of her post-surgery scar on Facebook. In the caption, she shared a powerful message about the way people tends to view this method of childbirth. 

    Lee begins the post with a comment that represents some common reactions to her birth experience: “Oh. A c-section? So you didn’t actually give birth. It must have been nice to take the easy way out like that.”

    The new mom then shared her perfectly sarcastic response to those kinds of comments.

    “Ah, yes. My emergency c-section was absolutely a matter of convenience,” she wrote. “It was really convenient to be in labor for 38 hours before my baby went into distress and then every contraction was literally STOPPING his HEART.”

    “Being told at the beginning that I was displaying great progress and wouldn’t need a cesarean section… and then being told that I was being prepped for major abdominal surgery was not a shock at all,” Lee continued. “It had nothing to do with the fact that I physically couldn’t because I was given no other choice to save the life of my child.”

    The mom explains that having a C-section is decidedly “not pleasant” ― as it involves doctors pulling a baby out of a five-inch abdominal incision. She also noted that dealing with “shredded and mangled” core muscles in the aftermath is no picnic either.

    “This was the most painful thing I have experienced in my life,” she wrote. “I now belong to a badass tribe of mamas with the scar to prove that I had a baby cut out of me and lived to tell the tale.”

    Lee concluded her post with a message to people who suggest that women who gave birth via C-section had an “easy peasy” experience. She wrote:

    “When that first nurse asked you to try getting out of bed and the ripping pain of a body cut apart and stitched back together seared through you, you realized the irony of anybody who talks about it being the ‘easy way out.’ So f**k you and f**k how you see what I did.

    I am the strongest woman, that I know. Not only for myself, but for my beautiful son… and I would honestly go through this every single day just to make sure I am able to see his smiling face.”

    Lee’s post has received over 14,000 likes and counting. In a follow-up comment, she wrote that she never imagined her rant would reach so many people and is grateful to learn that she’s not alone in feeling that way as a C-section mama.

    “I’m so happy that people are spreading the awareness that not all mommies can deliver the ‘natural way,’” she added in another post.

    Cheers to empowering moms, no matter how they became parents.

    How $80 Can Save A Life

    Case study: A 48 year-old man, athletic and highly successful in his career, enjoys a day of surfing. While walking back to his car, he collapses and cannot be revived. A heart attack is to blame for his sudden death. Rare? Unfortunately, this is neither rare nor hypothetical as the world lost a good man recently and my heart goes out to his young family.

    How can this happen? Although I did not know this man, I imagine he saw doctors and had checkups. Perhaps he even had a stress test along the way. There is a disconnect in the identification of early heart disease that is not true of some other important ailments. For example, consider the fact that when you turn 50 you are asked to have a colonoscopy to look directly at the colon for masses. Women are asked to have a mammogram to look directly at the breast for growths. But heart artery blockages, the number 1 cause of sudden death over age 30, are still not looked at directly. The standard recommendations at a physical exam include measuring blood pressure and cholesterol and maybe performing an ECG, all of which are indirect and inadequate examinations of the status of the coronary arteries.

    I know there is a better approach, the coronary artery calcium scan (CACS). It is endorsed by the Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication (SHAPE), the American College of Cardiology, and hundreds of peer reviewed research studies. The American College of Cardiology has given a high endorsement (IIA) to the use of CACS in persons with known risk factors for silent coronary disease.

    The “mammogram” of the heart, as the CACS is known, is low-cost ($ 80 in my community) and offers a direct examination of the heart arteries. There is no contrast or IV injection and the test takes about 1 minute.

    Who should not have a CACS?

    If someone already knows they have coronary artery disease such as a previous cardiac catheterization showing blockage, a previous heart stent, or a previous heart bypass surgery, there would be no need for a CACS. People who know that they have blockage in other parts of the body, like an artery of the brain called the carotid artery or the arteries of the leg, remain debatable candidates for the CACS.

    What about risks of the CACS? 

    Other than a small out of pocket cost (insurance covered in a few states like Texas), other concerns are the possibility of creating undue stress, missing soft plaque without calcium, and the dose of radiation. For decades, cardiologists have relied on exercise nuclear testing using treadmill examinations. One measure of the dose of radiation is called a milliSievert or mSv. An exercise test with Cardiolite may expose a patient to 12 to 15 mSv of radiation. By comparison, a cardiac catheterization done in an efficient manner may expose a patient to about 10 mSv of radiation. In centers with the most advanced multislice scanners, the imaging has gotten so fast that the radiation dose of a CACS is less than1 mSv and on par with a mammogram.

    Furthermore, a new research study has demonstrated that a CACS over 400 adds independent prognostic information even over the most advanced nuclear stress test.

    Why do a CACS?

    A CACS may provide life-changing information. For example, the European Society of Cardiology said that “there is overwhelming evidence that coronary calcification represents a strong marker of risk for future cardiovascular events in asymptomatic individuals and have prognostic power above and beyond traditional risk factors.” The same position statement indicated that in asymptomatic individuals a calcium score of zero was associated with a very low risk of heart events over the next 3 to 5 years (less than 1 percent per year). Individuals with a coronary calcium score greater than 1000 have an eleven-fold increase in risk of major events even if they are without symptoms. This is a huge difference.

    No one should be surprised by heart disease. A CACS at age 40 or 45 can identify if there is a burden of silent calcified atherosclerotic plaque. If silent heart disease is found, a range of measures from plant based reversal diets, exercise, stress management, supplements, and monitoring can be implemented. In my clinic, I monitor patients with abnormal CACS and work on reversing their plaque with all of these strategies. Yes, $ 80 can save a life (perhaps $ 150 in your community). Do not wait. Call your local hospitals to see if it is offered, find out the cost, get a Rx from your health care provider, and schedule a CACS today. Finding out your score can help you ride the waves knowing the true status of your heart health.

    I Will Still Love My Husband If He Votes For Donald Trump

    Almost 18 years ago I was a liberal, vegetarian, bell-bottom-wearing college sophomore when I met my husband — a young Republican Alex P. Keaton-type if Keaton was tall, blonde and a deer hunter. Election night 2000 stands out as an almost disastrous night in our relationship as we sat together, watching the election night returns and alternately fluctuating between elation and despair throughout the night as the outcome of the election swung back and forth.

    Having learned our lesson, in the three subsequent elections we each calmly watch returns in different rooms of our home. We disclose campaign contributions to each other, always with the possibility of our joint bank account being used to fund two opposing campaigns. We never put out campaign signs (except for the occasional support of the Detroit Zoo) because, as we joke, we do not need to let the whole neighborhood in on our dysfunction. He has suggested more than once that we just stop voting so we do not spend time waiting in line just to cancel each other out, but as I get immense joy out of the experience of voting he begrudgingly shows up at the polls.

    With the disclaimer that our state does not have registration by party affiliation and, even if it did, I am not sure either of us would choose to affiliation, we are an interparty marriage. Only nine percent of married couples are Republican-Democrat. But even in these divisive times, with rhetoric flying and a news cycle that seems to be accelerating faster than a boulder falling of a cliff, I love my husband and respect his right to cast his vote even if he decides to cast that vote for Donald Trump.

    Suffice to say, #imwithher. But equally as importantly, I am against him. Since the reasons to be against Donald Trump have filled voluminous pages of this blog and elsewhere, I will summarize that my passion in life is improving Muslim-Jewish relations and Trump is antithetical to my understanding of my faith, my values and what it means to be an American. I think he is dangerous and bad for America. There are few superlatives that I would hesitate to use when talking about the destructiveness of Trump’s candidacy. But I will not extend these superlatives to those who vote for Trump and — in the end — I might be married to one.

    This election season, my friends, my colleagues, even my mother have come up to me with the whispered question, “Is your husband going to vote for Donald Trump?” The truthful answer: I don’t know and I am not sure if he does either. Like many conservatives, he appears to be struggling between voting for a Republican candidate that does not represent his conservative political philosophies, voting for a third party candidate knowing that support may put a Democrat in the White House for another four years or just staying home, not voting and watching a rerun of South Park instead of the election returns.

    When I admit that it is a possibility — even a probability — that my husband will vote for Trump, there is often a gasp or a head shake or a disapproving look followed by the sentiment that “I could never be married to someone that would vote for that man.” And while I fully grasp revulsion at Trump’s candidacy, it strikes me that when I pledged to love my husband in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer or all that other stuff, there was not an exception for the day there was a Republican candidate that I found really repulsive.

    While it is beyond my abilities to explain why any person would vote for Trump, I recall back to a humiliating memory in my own life. In 2004, just weeks before the election, I was down in South Carolina at a friend’s wedding. Afterwards, several of us were knocking back yet a few more cocktails and I got involved in a political conversation with a friend’s boyfriend who belonged to a category of people that my closed-minded liberal self did not know existed – Gay Republicans.

    I remember pressing him at length about his Republican identification. I was appalled that he could be faithful to a political party that rejected his civil rights. I questioned him not out of curiosity, but out of indignation and a false moral superiority that allowed me to weigh his conflicting values better than he could. Whether fuelled by this indignation or the cocktails, I kept going long passed the point where decency or common sense would have led me to change the topic.

    In reality, the notion of thinking that my friend’s boyfriend was some kind of anomaly was simply uneducated and I look back on my actions with a certain amount of shame. For many people, aspects of their political philosophies, cultural beliefs and identity may clash in a way that make choosing a candidate difficult. In 2004, 23 percent of the LGBT population voted for President Bush. This year, a poll showed that 11 percent of Muslims voted for Trump in the primaries and 14 percent of Hispanics may vote for Trump in the general election.

    People are complicated and the factors that lead us to cast a vote are even more so. The coverage seems to place us neatly in boxes by race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, education but these are just statistics. Statistics are the business of pollsters, the lifeblood of campaigns and the source of a thousand news stories. But it is our life experience and beliefs and identity the mingle within us and help us determine which candidate to support. Just because someone comes to a different conclusion than us does not mean that there is nothing of value in that person and nothing we could have in common. In and of itself, it just means that we are casting votes for different candidates.

    Every day, there are stories of people defriended over political views. While defriending in a social media context is easy enough, it is the defriending in real life that is more troubling. In this election cycle, rifts are placed in families and communities over support of a candidate. The rhetoric continues to increase in ways that do not serve our country — from cries of locking her up to naked statutes of a candidate in parks. While we can all fingerpoint as to what has caused this political climate, the better question for each of us is whether we have become part of the problem?

    To those that cannot believe that I love my conservative husband or that I could continue to do so even if he casts a vote for Donald Trump, do you really think I should get divorced because of a presidential vote? If you believe Fivethirtyeight.com (which I always do), 44.1 percent of this country will vote for Donald Trump. If you cannot fathom being married to one of them, being friends with one of them or being related to one of them, is it time to ask whether you are a part of the problem? Instead of blaming the divisiveness solely on either the Republican candidate or some amorphous “other” out there, perhaps it is time to look inside.

    There is a line in The American President, “How do you have patience for people who claim they love America, but clearly can’t stand Americans?” In context, this is intended as a dig at conservatives but it seems like a claim that can be levelled at all of us.

    In the past 18 years, I have learned a great deal from my conservative husband. I have come to appreciate the economic philosophies that he holds paramount when choosing candidates. I have come to appreciate that sometimes his conservatism relies on an innate belief in the goodness of people whereas sometimes my liberalism can veer dangerously into paternalism. Our disagreements sometimes strengthen my own views by cutting away the surface argument and getting to the core of my beliefs while other times I have seen my beliefs moderate when faced with compelling argument from him.

    If we cut out those in our lives based on a vote, we will slowly whittle our own world to an echo chamber where everyone around us simply parrots back what we assume to be true about the world. I have no doubt that this is easier. I imagine it would be fun to spend election day either rejoicing or mourning with the person that I love most in the world. I imagine that it would be nice to be in the same room on election day.

    But even this year, even with these stakes, even with offense I take at Donald Trump’s words and actions, even when I genuinely fear for the safety of my Muslim brothers and sisters who are facing increased violence, I will not allow myself to give in and excise from my life those who balance their competing values differently than I balance mine. I believe that Donald Trump is dangerous for America, but I believe that letting Donald Trump divide us as Americans is even more dangerous. I fell in love with my husband almost 18 years ago and, whatever happens on November 8, I will still be in love with him. But I will not watch election returns in the same room as him.

    Bali High

    2016-08-23-1471979701-4140362-BaliHigh2.jpg

    Although I’ve been home from Bali several weeks, I keep dreaming I’m there…the sounds, the smells, images of the people wash over me:

    • The beauty of this island full of flowers and smiling faces.
    • The gamelan music, an orchestra of percussion instruments, bells and bamboo flutes that mimic the sounds of a Bali morning – insects, birds, roosters, ocean waves.
    • The scent of incense lingering from the daily offerings of carefully crafted coconut or palm frond containers full of colorful flowers, offered to appease the lower gods and honor the higher gods.
    • The chaos of cars, trucks and motorbikes carrying whole families and goods to market passing within inches on narrow roads – made safe by the gentle toot or toot-toot that signals passing.

    Immersed in the Balinese culture for two weeks, I was reminded there are so many good ways to live. We visited my friend Susan, a psychologist, who lives in Bali. There is no work for her among the locals. They are too happy. Traveling with my daughter Lisa, we mused about what keeps the people contented. Lisa wrote about it in her blog: What the Balinese do for Anxiety.

    As part of their Hindu Buddhist religion, as Lisa describes, everyone prepares and dedicates offerings to the gods. Every day. In every home, store and village. Before picking us up, our drivers prayed in their family temples for our safe trips. Children learn very young to play in a gamelan orchestra, and to dance the traditional Balinese dances. The dancing is complex, physically difficult, using every body part including head and eyes, in still and flowing patterns to the sound of the gamelan, each movement carrying meaning. The dances act out familiar stories that are sometimes funny, always teaching moral lessons. Characters include the gods of good and mischief and evil. Beautifully carved sacred masks and elaborate costumes are integral to the dances.

    We saw several Balinese dance performances, and one night we were treated to another traditional form of theater – a shadow puppet show. Behind the screen, which we were invited to visit, was an entire family supporting the puppeteer. He told a piece of the traditional Ramayana story – an ancient, epic Hindu story. However, he improvised the telling for the audience (our small group of Americans.) He made it modern and relevant to us, including references to surprising things like Pokemon Go!

    Steeped in tradition, ritual and shared beliefs, the Balinese are warm, relaxed and friendly. Good humor abounds. They seem untroubled by questions like, “Who am I?” “Where do I belong?” and “How can I feel safe?” Those questions are answered in the context of their daily lives, living with family, belonging to compound and village, doing the daily rituals, sharing in the many large ceremonies and celebrations.

    Bali is an open-hearted culture. Thinking of it makes me happy. I hope my Bali dreams continue.

    Since coming home, I’ve been asking myself questions: how might we build ritual and tradition more solidly into our daily lives? How open-hearted is the United States? And – what might be an American equivalent to the gentle, respectful horn toots on the highways that keep people calm, safe and cared for?

    COACHING QUESTIONS

    1. What new perspective have you gained from visiting other cultures (here or in other countries?)
    2. What rituals or traditions do you practice in your life?
    3. How do they help you feel safe and connect you with others?
    4. What rituals/traditions would you like to create in your life?
    5. When will you start?
    6. How do you contribute to the open-heartedness of your culture?

    P.S. I promised to follow up on how well StopJetLag worked. It worked! Stopped jetlag in its tracks. Lisa and I recommend it heartily.

    Sleeping With Someone Who Grits Or Grinds His Or Her Teeth During The Night

    Millions of people grit or grind their teeth as they sleep. They bite down hard; they grit or grind their teeth back and forth; they clench their teeth. And whatever they do goes on night after night. Technically it is called bruxism. Sleeping with someone who bruxes can make it hard to sleep. What can a person do who can’t fall asleep or can’t stay asleep because of a partner’s grinding or gritting teeth?

    Wake Your Partner Up
    Some of the people I interviewed for my book Two in a Bed who had a partner who bruxed said that it sometimes helped to wake their partner up. They might push at the partner or lightly shake the partner. One man woke his wife up when he couldn’t sleep because of her clenching and grinding her teeth by yelling out “That’s enough!” She would usually stop grinding her teeth for a few minutes, even if she didn’t wake up, and that often gave him enough time to fall asleep.

    Maybe a Dentist or Oral Surgeon Can Help
    Grinding teeth can be quite painful. Many people who grind teeth at night have sore jaws during their waking hours. Many have aching or cracked teeth, or they break the fillings or crowns in their teeth. Some have chronic headaches. The pain itself can be quite unpleasant. Plus when they get that sore they can find it extremely painful to eat, yawn, or do other things with their jaw. At some point, many people with bruxism are driven to a dentist or oral surgeon by the pain. And a worried spouse or lover (who may also be losing sleep because of the bruxism) may push their bruxing sleep partner to get that kind of help. And in fact, many people who grind their teeth at night only know that they do that because their sleeping partner tells them about it.

    A dentist or oral surgeon may help. Many people use a dentist-fitted night-time mouth guard, a cushioning device shaped for their mouth, that protects the teeth and reduces or eliminates the grinding. Some people have had jaw surgery, which doesn’t necessarily eliminate the grinding but helps to reduce the pain that has developed in the jaw joint.

    Sleep Apart
    Some couples sleep apart some or all of the time so that the partner of the person who bruxes can get to sleep more easily and stay asleep. Of course, that means they lose the many advantages of sharing a bed–the intimacy and safety, the sexual access, the possibility of night time conversations before falling asleep, and so on. And sleeping apart only works if there is a decent sleeping place elsewhere in the house and if it’s far enough away from the bruxer so that the partner who has fled the bruxer can’t still hear the bruxing.

    Tension Reduction May Help
    Sometimes the bruxing develops because of specific tensions in a person’s life, and if those tensions can be ended or at least managed differently, the bruxing will stop. For example, in one couple I interviewed the woman’s bruxing started when their adult son, his wife, and their baby moved back home. The adult son and his wife were constantly arguing and the baby was often crying. The woman said that is when her bruxing started, and sometimes the only way she could get away from the constant squabbling and crying and to give her husband a chance to sleep free of her bruxing was to go to the backyard and sleep on the trampoline. But eventually she just told her son and his wife to move out, and they did. And then the woman stopped bruxing.

    Some people find ways on their own to reduce tensions that underlie their tooth gritting and grinding. Some are helped by a psychologist or other therapist to deal with underlying issues in their lives, anything from how they let work get to them to how they deal with their children or other family members to, well, almost anything. Some learn relaxation techniques, including yoga, meditation, self-hypnosis, exercise, and how to change how they think about the stressors in their lives.

    Is TMJ Disorder Costing You A Good Night’s Sleep?

    If you are one of the estimated 40 million+ Americans who suffer each year from chronic sleep disorders or one of the additional 20 million who experience occasional sleeping problems, you know first hand how the problem can affect your quality of life. A sleep disorder can interfere with your work, your ability to drive and your participation in social activities.

    Did you know that many patients who suffer from sleep disorders are also dealing with a problem directly related to disorders in their temporomandibular joint (TMJ)? The TMJ is the joint that attaches your lower jaw, or mandible, to the temporal bone of your head. More precisely, it is where the lower jaw fits into the skull and is supported by the muscles in your face. It is the joint that allows you to chew, swallow and yawn. However, when it isn’t functioning properly it can be the root of a lot of problems.

    A disorder in this important joint can cause pain and discomfort in other parts of the body and these TMJ disorder symptoms — including sleep apnea, teeth grinding and tension headaches or migraines — can impact your ability to get a good night’s sleep.

    Experts estimate that more than 44 million Americans have one of the several variants of TMJ disorder, or TMD, with women more prone to the condition than men. Pain when chewing is a common symptom, as are other warning signs including limited movement of the jaw or a locking sensation, ringing in the ears, jaw clicking and grating or popping of the jaw joint. These symptoms are often a result of muscle tension and misalignment in the jaw. Although minor symptoms may be relieved with a little rest, hot and cold packs, a soft diet, TMJ massage and/or jaw exercises, persistent symptoms can lead to chronic problems that disrupt your sleep and can become more difficult to treat.

    2016-08-23-1471911816-5123663-headache.png

    Sleep Apnea

    We have all seen the images of tools used to manage sleep apnea that require sufferers to sleep with a CPAP mask, making them look like a super villain or scuba diver. However, obstructive sleep apnea is a potentially serious condition. Sufferers experience obstructed airflow and stop breathing repeatedly during sleep, sometimes for a minute or even longer. This may happen from five times an hour to more than 100 in severe cases. The body is damaged by only 5 of these episodes an hour, and as we learn more, it appears that even minor episodes can cause chronic damage.

    When breathing stops, the brain reacts to the situation by producing a rush of adrenalin which in turn quickens the heartbeat. Muscles in the chest then work to resume airflow and the person gasps for a breath and falls back asleep. This scenario is then repeated multiple times during the same night while the person never realizes what is occurring. That’s because they never really “wake up” but only experience a short pause in sleep. This pause destroys the normal sleep cycle cascade which is critically important to health and brain function.

    More and more studies are showing a connection between TMD and sleep disturbances. In many sleep apnea cases, a misaligned jaw joint or TMJD, is actually to blame. This is because the tongue’s position is impacted by the alignment of the upper and lower teeth. When the teeth are misaligned, the tongue can block the airway as you sleep. This problem with the jaw alignment or malocclusion can cause a person to wake up frequently throughout the night.

    Untreated sleep apnea causes snoring and can lead to much more serious health issues such as high blood pressure and heart disease. In addition, people with sleep apnea do not get the rest they need because, as a preventative reaction, their brains keep them from falling into a deep sleep mode.

    Bruxism

    Another symptom of TMD is bruxism, commonly called teeth grinding. A misalignment of the jaw can cause you to unconsciously grind or clench your teeth together.

    Bruxism causes significant damage to your teeth and is something that is easily corrected with proper physiologic care. You would be surprised at how forcefully we can clench our teeth. As we are waking, the pressure when clamping the teeth together can reach about 200 pounds per square inch. However, when we are asleep, that force can reach more than 700 pounds per square inch!

    Because of this force, people with severe bruxism can break their dental fillings and/or cause the outer layers of their tooth enamel to wear away, exposing the highly sensitive dentin. Additionally, this extreme jaw muscle tension can result in complications that include other TMJ disorder symptoms like lockjaw and tension headaches.

    Night Headaches

    When the bite and the lower jaw are misaligned, muscles are strained which can result in head pain that can mimic a migraine. This pain can be around the forehead, on the back of the head or radiating down the neck.

    The same obstructive breathing that causes sleep apnea also can cause nighttime or hypertensive headaches. To put it simply, lack of oxygen can trigger a painful headache.

    Many people turn to over-the-counter pain medication for headaches rather than exploring the root cause of the pain. Common signs that a headache is related to a TMJ disorder include:

    ● A clicking or popping sound emanating from the jaw
    ● A bite that feels off or does not close properly
    ● Complaints of snoring at night from your spouse or family
    ● Forward head posture

    Researchers from the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine found that headaches related to TMJ dysfunction are frequently misdiagnosed as tension headaches. In a study of 583 patients with frequent headaches, 82 percent of female cases and 17 percent of male cases had symptoms associated with TMD.

    Finding Relief

    If you think TMD could be causing your sleep problems, here are some tips you can try at home:

    ● Gently stretch your neck throughout the day
    ● Improve your posture
    ● Avoid chewing gum
    ● Gently massage your jaw muscles
    ● Commit to a soft diet
    ● Try to use other home remedies to lessen the severity of a TMD flare up
    ● Learn to combat stress with exercise or meditation. (Stress can exacerbate pain.)
    ● Move the jaw gently from side to side 10 times and then allow it to rest for a minute. Do this for 5 sets a few times a day. This will help to stretch the muscles of mastication.

    Although the exercises above may help, if the system is not physiologically correct, the best advice is to get it corrected. The headaches can start as a nuisance but can eventually become incapacitating.

    In my experience as a educator for TMJ dentists and clinical director at LVI Global, up to 85% of TMJ disorder symptoms can be resolved without prescription drugs or surgery. Instead, we return the jaw muscles to their natural place of physiologic rest which allows the system to function correctly. Treatment through neuromuscular dentistry strives to reduce or resolve symptoms by focusing on fixing the muscles that support the bite. The result is a dramatic lessening of muscle pain and in many cases, a better night’s sleep.

    GOP Congressional Hopeful Dan Bongino Launches Profanity-Laced Tirade Against Politico Reporter

    A Republican candidate for Congress in Florida launched a profanity-laced tirade at a Politico reporter during a recorded interview over the weekend.

    (NOTE: The audio above, and description below, contains profanity.)

    “You’re a real disgusting piece of shit,” Dan Bongino, a former Secret Service agent who’s in a primary race for a district in southwest Florida, told Politico’s Marc Caputo on Sunday.

    The dispute erupted after Bongino objected to a report in the Naples Daily News that claimed most of his campaign donations came from outside the district. He told Caputo it was a “wholly inaccurate story,” and after several minutes of trying to explain why, the two got testy with each other

    Bongino seemed to say that many of the contributors within his district were small donors and didn’t have to be disclosed, although his exact words were difficult to understand as the two repeatedly spoke over each other. Then, Caputo said, “Let me ask the questions ― I’ll handle the questions and you handle the answers.” 

    That set Bongino off. 

    You don’t give me orders, you piece of shit, you understand?” he yelled. “You piece of shit.” 

    They also sparred over Bongino’s two failed campaigns ― running unsuccessfully for both the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate ― in Maryland before moving to Florida.

    “Marc, I am going to humiliate you from this point,” Bongino promised. “I’m going to make you an example. You will regret the day we had this conversation.”

    As he lost his temper, Caputo goaded him, calling Bongino a “professional political candidate who loses.” 

    “Hey, shut the fuck up,” Bongino yelled back. “Go fuck yourself, you piece of shit.”

    Shortly after the tirade, Bongino hopped online and went after Caputo for his use of the word “dude.” 

    I can be a little salty on Twitter,” Bongino said in a Facebook video. “But I’m not a reporter and I don’t call people ‘dude’ when I want to comment.” 

    Bongino also said he didn’t see Caputo’s declaration on Twitter that he would record the conversation because he had blocked the reporter. 

    The Naples Daily News also reported that Bongino recently got into an argument at a campaign event that was so heated the organizers had to intervene

    Bongino’s primary is next week, where he will face off against two other Republicans for the seat currently held by GOP Rep. Curt Clawson, who is not seeking reelection. Robert Neeld is the only Democrat running in a district Ballotpedia calls “safely Republican.”

    The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

    Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

    The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs. They also possess no eligibility requirements, no forms to fill out, or expiration date as well .One card will take care of a whole family.

Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

    American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072.

    American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible.

American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

    What No One Told Me About Following My Passion

    Like much of my generation in America, I don’t have to worry about where my next meal will come from. I don’t have to worry about how I’ll get to work. I don’t have to worry about a safe, dry place to sleep.

    So I worry about something else, with which much less of the world has the luxury of preoccupation: purpose. Some spend their days searching for food; I spend my life hunting meaning–full, but unsatisfied.

    Most millennials’ basic needs have been met–a prerequisite for fulfilling our greatest potential. If we don’t make our lives meaningful, we will have dishonored and squandered our opportunity. Perhaps this responsibility explains our fixation with purpose.

    We know what we want. The question is: how do we find it?

    Hoping that international travel and novel experiences would infuse my life with meaning, I moved to Canada when I graduated college. There I learned, as I conclude in my essay The Myth of Wanderlust, “you can’t drive to purpose.”

    So I returned home and pursued my lifelong passion of writing. For the last two years, I’ve followed a self-authored, step-by-step plan to successfully discovering, integrating and making money from my passions. A marketing position, an editing role and six months of self-employment later, I realized you can’t write to purpose, either.

    Passion, I’ve learned, does not equal purpose.

    Why?

    Here’s a synopsis of the 8000 words I initially spewed on this question:

    Passion, the way many millennials have come to define it, is self-oriented. Passion is “a strong inclination toward a self-defining activity that one loves, values, and in which one invests a substantial amount of time and energy,” explains one study published in Self and Identity.

    Purpose, on the other hand, is other-oriented. One Stanford study found that individuals with meaning mindsets “seek connections, give to others, and orient themselves to a larger purpose.”

    Modern passion is pleasure-oriented. One influential study on passion defines it as “an autonomous internalization that leads individuals to choose to engage in the activity that they like.” In other words, passion’s answer to “Why are you doing this?” is “Because I like it.”

    But meaningfulness, sums the Stanford study, sometimes involves “feeling bad”.

    Passion is short-term. Though we tend to assume it’s lifelong, passion changes more than we anticipate because we change more than we anticipate. As Terri Trespicio observes in her TEDx Talk, “Passion is not a plan. Passion is a feeling, and feelings change.”

    Purpose is hardy. Gritty individuals, explains one study, prioritize long-term goals. This long-term perspective, another study notes, helps give “more weight to meaning than pleasure” and solidifies self-control.

    I don’t regret following my passion. In fact, I still endorse my strategy. Passions help us understand who we are and what we want. They bring vitality and joy to our days. But following your passion is a deceptively slow, uncertain way to purpose.

    If I could tell myself anything three years ago when I graduated college, it would probably be this:

    “Follow your passion, sure. But don’t expect it to produce your purpose.”

    I help 1000+ ambitious millennials find their professional purpose with a research-packed weekly newsletter. Want in? Subscribe.

    #HeartWarrior: Maddy Reyes

    Maddy Reyes is a 12-year-old Heart Warrior participating in the 2016 Puget Sound Heart and Stroke Walk. She is also a social media ambassador, @MaddyGoCheer.

    I have a different heart than most kids. When I was born I was diagnosed with a heart condition called Tetralogy of Fallot. The doctors and surgeons were watching my heart very closely until I was four months old.


    When I was four months old my doctor told my parents that I would have to get open heart surgery to keep my heart safe.

    2016-08-22-1471899028-4339285-FB_IMG_1455171105617_resized.jpg The surgeons fixed a hole in my heart and made my pulmonary artery bigger. My doctor is now watching my heart closely to see when I will need a new valve. When I get to an age when I need a valve transplant, I will need to have open heart surgery again but the doctors are trying to wait as long as possible until I have my next surgery.

    Every year I have to go to a children’s hospital for checkups. My checkups are different than a normal checkup though. For a heart checkup you have to do a treadmill test which tells the doctors how fast my heart rate goes and what my endurance level is. Also there is an echocardiogram which shows the doctors how my heart is doing and the heartbeat. When you go they also have you do a sticker test when they put stickers on you with a bunch of wires to see your heart rate. Last but not least, my least favorite one is the MRI. During the MRI you have to get an IV because for the doctors to see your heart they put color in the IV to make a good picture so they can see the little details and in a MRI you have to stay really still and calm in a big long tube for an hour and a half.

    2016-08-22-1471899090-9290638-heartwarriors.png
    I am very healthy and do lots of physical activities even though I have a heart condition. I do competitive cheerleading almost every day of the week and I tumble, stunt, and jump. I also do dance four days a week and the kinds of dance I do are tap, jazz, and ballet. I also run a lot of races and am on the cross country team. I am glad to be where I am right now and continue to grow stronger as I get older.

    A Unique Approach To Discomfort

    “Destiny is not for comfort seekers. Destiny is for the daring and determined who are willing to endure some discomfort, delay gratification, and go where destiny leads.” ~ T.D. Jakes

    “We ask God for signs, wonders and miracles, but refuse to go into circumstances where we need them.” — Christine Caine

    One may believe that a happy life eschews pain and discomfort by all costs. But, in truth, life opens up to us and expands when we’re squeezed and pushed through discomfort. Our emotional constriction, which creates our discomfort, begins to soften and expand when we lean into our discomfort. Moreover, our dreams are actualized through moments of confusion, doubt, fear, and uncertainty. So, when we’re pushed into our discomfort zone, we’re better able to witness and cultivate new skills that will propel us to new heights in our spiritual, emotional, and physical evolution.

    How many of us can say that we have grown and transformed the most when we are “seemingly” sailing through life? Not many of us. When things appear superficially “perfect” and aligned in our lives, what could possibly ignite us toward growth and realizing God’s deeper purpose for our lives?

    However, what indubitably pushes us toward greater fulfillment and purpose in our lives is when we’re tightly squeezed and pushed through discomfort. The physical manifestation of the contrast between what we deeply desire on a soulful level to what is actually showing up in our lives, creates the emotional and spiritual dissonance for us to push through and create transformation.

    Transformation is accelerated in our lives through pain and discomfort. Such that, God will use different people, events, and circumstances to show up in our lives that cause us aggravation and distress, as a catalyst for growth and inspiration. Personally, I created a life that I dreamed of, living on a paradise island as a Life & Spiritual Coach & Teacher, not by coasting through life and feeling on top of the world. No. My life was radically changed when I hit my lowest point. When my pain and suffering had become enough.

    Through pain and suffering, my heart opened up to greater transparency for God’s light to shine through and heal, motivate, and push me at deeper levels. Surely, the pressure was strong and tightening, but the more pressure I experienced, the harder I fought. Had I experienced continued success selling real estate in New York City, perhaps with money flowing in easily and effortlessly, and joy living in a city that stole my heart 19 years ago, I would not be living the life of my dreams right now. I’d still be living a life that was content and good, but truthfully, mediocre in the eyes of God. But, God doesn’t want GOOD ENOUGH for our lives, he wants GREAT!

    So where is discomfort showing up in your life? Is it in a relationship? A job? Your living circumstances? Your finances? Your health? Or a lack of balance in your life? Consider each difficulty as a message that God has something better and more meaningful for your life. As we release the need to pity ourselves in difficult times and rather use discomfort as the catalyst toward change, we create an opportunity for greater richness and joy in our lives. Discomfort and pressure will always show up. To the extent that, although my life is greater than it’s ever been, there are newer and completely different experiences of discomfort that appear. But, with greater awareness I now recognize that my discomfort shows me that there’s still more for me to see and do in my life. This inspires me to work harder and explore my path with greater curiosity and determination.

    Today, find peace with your discomfort. Embrace the stickiness. Ask for its lessons and guidance. Trust that your uneasiness is the vehicle to catapult you to places you’ve never been before. Use discomfort to your advantage in creating a life you dream of.

    The Wee Christmas Cabin of Carn-na-ween


    Ruth Sawyer’s lyrical Christmas story, originally published in 1941, and now hauntingly illustrated by Max Grafe, will melt readers’ hearts and make them long for a white and magical Christmas.A hundred years ago and more, on a stretch of road that runs from the town of Donegal to Killybegs and the sea, a drove of tinkers went their way of mending pots and thieving lambs. Having a child too many for the caravan, they left it, new-born, upon a cabin doorstill in Carn-na-ween.So begins the life of Oona Hegarty, who grows up to be beautiful, kind, talented and clever – but doomed , as a tinker’s child, never to marry or have a home of her own. She spends her life wandering from cabin to cabin, nurturing others’ children or tending the sick and the old, only to be turned out again when her usefulness has passed. Then comes the snowy Christmas Eve when Oona, an old woman now, finds herself homeless, hoisting a bundle of donated treasures almost too heavy to lift. With a famine turning human hearts to stone and not a soul who is willing to take her in, it seems Oona will end her days with no place to rest her head or warm her bones. But what of the Gentle People said to live in the boglands near Carn-na-ween – will they let an old woman’s lifelong kindness go unrewarded, especially on a white Christmas?

    The Name Therapist

    The Name Therapist


    What’s a stripper name? For that matter, what’s a high-class name? How do you tell the difference? Why does everyone call them baby names when they follow us through our whole lives? And can your name determine your destiny? From a television screenwriter and contributor on the LaineyGossip.com blog comes a book about what names really mean, how we use them, and why they matter. A child of Irish and Egyptian immigrants to Canada, Duana Taha became fascinated by names, not least because hers felt awkward at best and impossible at worst. She believed that names explained not only who you were, but where you came from and who you could be. She became a name nerd, and later a name snob, before settling into the role she was born to playa Name Therapist, giving straight talk baby-and-grown-up-name advice to just about everyone. In a romp through North American naming trends, traditions, and pop culture, Duana brings us the hilarious, insightful, and surprising truths about hipster names in Brooklyn and Malibu, and the most intelligent names at Harvard University; digs into the stereotypes about culture and class where names are concerned; and heads backstage to find out the stories behind those supposed stripper names. And if you don’t know what a Starbucks name is, Duana points out why you obviously never needed one. The Name Therapist ‘s explorations will help you understand your feelings about your own name, whether it’s one you share with millions (hi, Jennifer!), or one you grew up waiting in vain for the Romper Room host to say. Would you, by any other name, still be you? From the Hardcover edition.

    "I looked at my reflection and despaired. As an exhausted young mother I felt ugly and saw that a new dress or face cream would never help. I was at risk of passing on a habit of feeling miserable about my looks to my baby girl–if nothing changed." Soon afterward Phoebe Baker Hyde made a vow: to give up new clothes, makeup, haircuts, and jewelry in hopes of revealing something she had always paid lip service to but never quite believed in–her inner beauty. "The Beauty Experiment" chronicles Hyde’s quest for self-acceptance in nothing but her own skin. In thoughtful, exquisite prose, Hyde holds up a mirror to all women and shows how perfectionism can keep us from achieving what we really want: happiness, confidence, and serenity.

    Joint U.S.-South Korean Drills Begin Despite North Korean Threats

    SEOUL (Reuters) – The United States and South Korea kicked off annual military exercises on Monday, prompting warnings of retaliation from the North, as already-heightened tension on the peninsula has been inflamed by the defection of a Pyongyang diplomat.

    North Korea has become further isolated after a January nuclear test, its fourth, and the launch of a long-range rocket in February brought tightened U.N. Security Council sanctions that Pyongyang defied with several ballistic missile launches.

    About 25,000 U.S. troops are joining in the Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercise, which runs until Sept 2. The U.S.-led U.N. Command Military Armistice Commission said it notified the North Korean army the exercises were “non-provocative” in nature.

    The North calls the exercises preparations for invasion, and early on Monday threatened a pre-emptive nuclear strike. North Korea frequently makes such threats.

    “From this moment, the first-strike combined units of the Korean People’s Army keep themselves fully ready to mount a preemptive retaliatory strike at all enemy attack groups involved in Ulji Freedom Guardian,” a KPA spokesman said in a statement carried by the North’s state-run KCNA news agency.

    “The nuclear warmongers should bear in mind that if they show the slightest sign of aggression, it would turn the stronghold of provocation into a heap of ashes through a Korean-style preemptive nuclear strike.”

    Last week, South Korea announced that Thae Yong Ho, the North’s deputy ambassador in London, had defected and arrived in the South with his family, in an embarrassing blow to the regime of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

    High-level defections pointed to cracks in the Kim regime, South Korean President Park Geun-hye said on Monday.

    “Recently even North Korea’s elite group is collapsing, followed by key figures defecting to foreign countries, showing a sign of serious cracks, with chances of shaking the regime further,” she told a National Security Council meeting.

    Thae’s defection followed the flight to Seoul this year of 12 waitresses from a North Korean restaurant in China.

    On Monday, North Korea’s Red Cross sent a letter to its South Korean counterpart asking for the women to be sent back, saying they had been kidnapped by the South, according to KCNA. South Korea denies they were kidnapped.

    North and South Korea are technically still at war because their 1950-53 conflict ended in an armistice, not a peace treaty.

    WATCH: Being More – Personal Development/Improvement

    As Goethe put it, “To have more, you must first be more.” What could you do today to be more, so that you can do and have more? I hope this video will help you do that.

    If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the “Tap Out Your Fears” series — which explains the basics of EFT — click here.

    As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing uncomfortable feelings and enhancing good ones. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

    For a picture of the tapping points — and more info on EFT — click here.

    Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I state that, before tapping along, folks must take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

    Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at www.TapWithBrad.com.

    For EFT with kids, please visit: www.TheWizardsWish.com.

    These Underwater Yoga Photos Prove The Practice Is Truly Magical

    Looking for a reason to hit the yoga mat today? Take a gander at these stunning photos.

    The surreal images, which were snapped by photographer Elena Kalis, feature yoga instructor Britta Jade as she masterfully executes yoga poses under water. They’re a truly majestic display of how yoga can be both athletic and a work of art.

    The photos are an inspirational reminder that the practice can be one of the best ways to move your body. Research shows yoga can reduce stress and lower your risk for heart disease. It also can improve your sleep and boost your brain function. Not to mention the fact that yoga can be an excellent form of strength training, which can help maintain a healthy weight.

    While not everyone can exactly run off to the crystal shores of a remote island to nail these moves, there are some added perks to taking your yoga practice to the water. Studies suggest being near the ocean can make you calmer and more creative. The sea also puts your brain in a more meditative state.

    If you’ve been slacking on a yoga routine (or hesitant to try one at all), take a look at the pictures below. Then check out these healthy reasons to prioritize the practice for additional motivation.

    Nirvana: achieved.

    Health Official Warns Zika Could Spread Across U.S. Gulf

    Aug 21 (Reuters) – One of the top U.S. public health officials on Sunday warned that the mosquito-borne Zika virus could extend its reach across the U.S. Gulf Coast after officials last week confirmed it as active in the popular tourist destination of Miami Beach.

    The possibility of transmission in Gulf States such as Louisiana and Texas will likely fuel concerns that the virus, which has been shown to cause the severe birth defect known as microcephaly, could spread across the continental United States, even though officials have played down such an outcome.

    Concern has mounted since confirmation that Zika has expanded into a second region of the tourist hub of Miami-Dade County in Florida. Miami’s Wynwood arts neighborhood last month became the site of the first locally transmitted cases of Zika in the continental United States.

    “It would not be surprising we would see additional cases perhaps in other Gulf Coast states,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the allergy and infectious diseases unit of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), said in an interview on Sunday morning with ABC News.

    Fauci noted that record flooding this month in Louisiana – which has killed at least 13 people and damaged some 60,000 homes damaged – has boosted the likelihood Zika will spread into that state.

    “There’s going to be a lot of problems getting rid of standing water” that could stymie the mosquito control efforts that are the best way to control Zika’s spread, he said.

    U.S. health officials have concluded that Zika infections in pregnant women can cause microcephaly, a birth defect marked by small head size that can lead to severe developmental problems in babies. The connection between Zika and microcephaly first came to light last fall in Brazil, which has now confirmed 1,835 cases of microcephaly that it considers to be related to Zika infections in the mothers.

    On Friday, Florida Governor Rick Scott confirmed that state health officials had identified five cases of Zika believed to be contracted in Miami Beach.

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told pregnant women they should avoid the trendy area and suggested those especially worried about exposure might consider avoiding all of Miami-Dade County.

    NIH’s Fauci on Sunday said the conditions of most of the country make it unlikely there would be a “diffuse, broad outbreak,” even though officials need to prepare for that possibility.

    He compared it with diseases such as Dengue, which is endemic in certain tropical and subtropical regions of the world but rarely occurs in the continental United States. In Miami’s Wynwood area, experts have seen “substantial” knockdowns of mosquito populations.

    Still, its containment is more complicated because Zika can be sexually transmitted, Fauci said.

    “This is something that could hang around for a year or two,” he said.

    The World Health Organization has said there is strong scientific consensus that Zika can also cause Guillain-Barre, a rare neurological syndrome that causes temporary paralysis in adults.

    Your Spacious Self: Clear the Clutter and Discover Who You Are

    Your Spacious Self: Clear the Clutter and Discover Who You Are


    Life is hard – and one of the things that makes it particularly hard is that each of us feel as if we are suffocating under an accumulation of things (too much information, too many dirty dishes and diapers, a swarm of shiftless friends and irresponsible lovers, too many choices, etc etc). This is a book that teaches you how to get rid of the detritus in your life – to clear out a space for yourself; to find a place where you can see blue sky and take a deep breath and to truly enjoy life.She shows us that it''s not our stuff, but the holding on to it that creates a force field of stuck-ness that clouds our perceptions and paralyzes our lives. Clutter is not just the junk spilling out of the closet. It is anything or thought that prevents us from experiencing who we truly are. Clearing is not a tedious exercise of throwing away, but a gentle journey of slowing down, letting go, and cultivating self-care.Included are daily tips and meditations, a weekly worksheet, tips for starting a clearing support group, and a de-cluttering checklist.

    The Five Reasons Donald Trump Will Be Our Next President

    You won’t see another article like this one anywhere else in the mainstream news media; certainly not in The Huffington Post.

    That’s because it’s blatantly obvious that the media doesn’t want Donald Trump to be elected President.

    Think about it: with the possible exception of Fox News, Breitbart and Drudge, there isn’t one news outlet that isn’t supporting Hillary Clinton.

    And if you think Americans don’t like our current President or Congress, there’s new reason to believe that Americans trust journalists and media people even less than our roundly despised elected leaders.

    A 2012 Gallup poll–don’t trust polls, as I drive home later … but this one is to be trusted–shouted “U.S. Distrust in Media Hits New High,” as if it was unbelievable. It wasn’t, LOL, and can only have gotten worse in the four years since.

    Turns out that while 60% of those asked had “little or no trust in the mass media,” only 10% had “a great deal of trust and confidence” in the media. I read this as 90% of America was not enamored of the press in 2012.

    Lastly, 44% said the news media are “too liberal” while only 19% said it was “too conservative.” (What, I like to imagine are those clueless 19% like?)

    All of this stale data gives us some idea of precisely why you won’t see an article taking this thrust or political orientation anywhere else. Why is this important? Figure it out.

    Just as I watch Maddow, Matthews, Todd and other Leftist “journos,” so too should Liberals read this if only to find out what the enemy is thinking.

    It also speaks to why I am one of the only–if not the only Conservative writer on HuffPo. (Great thanks for this go out to Arianna Huffington for her foresight.)

    Here now, the Five Reasons:

    1. Donald Trump’s Campaign Rallies–nothing can top a Trump Rally. I’ve been to both a Trump and Clinton Rally and they are night-and-day different.

    Hillary’s event was in a gymnasium, poorly attended, had an audience that needed constant prodding. At the last minute, a bunch of unrelated crowd-fillers were scooted in awkwardly and trained up to cheer when cued. There were no protesters, as if nobody has anything to protest Hillary about. And Hillary’s speech was wooden, shrill and without passion.

    Compare this to the organized, excited buzz of a Trump Rally. Over 4500 people filling a 4000-capacity nightclub. with thousands of disappointed yet still excited Trumpers outside who couldn’t get in but waiting anyway.

    Inside Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Women, Gays (many holding ‘Blanks’ for Trump signs, that’s how I knew), pregnant women and lots of children, running around and allowed to have fun and play. It was a safe environment with people who exhibited manners and seemed to make room for each other.

    The press at the event I attended reported “thousands of anti-Trump protesters.” I went to investigate. What I saw were a very motley crew of approximately 75 miscreants, uncoordinated and unable to intelligently describe what was wrong with Trump or what their gripes were. A reasonable conversation was impossible. Turns out, these poor souls were bused in, given $ 20 and a sandwich for their trouble. Or to start trouble. Pathetic.

    It’s the first event I’ve been to in my life that started with The National Anthem, a benediction prayer AND The Pledge of Allegiance. (A commentary on the current state of our country is the fact that I hadn’t spoken the Pledge since I was a grade-schooler–a horrible situation.) There were American flags festooned all over the place, unlike the first night of the DNC.

    And when Donald Trump spoke, people listened. When people protested, he asked them to leave until the audience took that upon themselves, chanting “Trump, Trump. Trump” until the interrupters left on their own, gladly.

    All in all, Trump has created something really special with his rallies. Something no other political candidate has replicated ever, because Trump’s one of a kind. The difference in his rallies is one of the things that will get him elected.

    2. Trump is FUNNY; People Like Funny. And, Hillary is Anything But–Who would you rather listen to? Follow? Someone funny or someone shrill? I know my answer. I can’t stand Hillary’s nasty, high-pitched tones and absurd paranoia. She’s got a congenital deficiency in the Truth Hormone and is currently on public trial on a number of atrocities. So that’s really not funny.

    On the other hand, we have Trump who makes me laugh about every other paragraph of his speeches. This is most obvious at his rallies when he tells a protester to “go home to Mommy” or “You’re so politically correct, you’re a real beauty.” Trump crowds wait for his humor and react with glee.

    This Trump Humor will serve him well when the debates begin. Hillary will have only accusations, meanness and unsupported claims to hurl at Trump. In the meantime, Trump will castigate Hillary with humor, cheerfulness and fun-poking which she cannot counter.

    Trump may be behind in the polls now, but just Like Ronald Reagan versus Walter Mondale with his elegant yet campaign-piercing “I want you to know that also I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent’s youth and inexperience” lightning-bolt, Trump is filled with these kinds of retorts that will eviscerate Hillary in the debate. There’s no way for her to prepare. Nobody can fill-in for Trump during her mock preparatory debates. She’s done once the debates start. Trump wins every one of the three without even breaking a sweat.

    Another good yardstick is likability. People I know who have met Trump (including myself) seem to like him, some immensely. Hillary not so much. People don’t respond to Hillary’s known backstage personality because she’s cold, calculating and absolutely ruthless. I reference the book, “Unlikable.”

    3. The Polls Are Not To Be Trusted–Who conducts these polls anyway? The aforementioned news media, generally in partnership with an academic institution of some kind. Oh, there’s another Liberal audience that can never vote anything but Democratic: Academics. It’s no wonder that skewed results are plastered all over our TVs, newspapers and Internet publications when polls are conducted. This is the news media’s main, centralized, not-too-secret secret sauce that let’s them cheer-lead their candidates onto undeserved victory. The Media has long thought they have Americans’ minds in the bag–that they can make anything happen by controlling what and how Americans think including get their candidate elected.

    It’s about time this media manipulation, ‘medipulation’ I’ll call it, stops.

    The one possible landmine of this spinning of the polls by a Liberal media, academics and politicians is that they forget that by putting their candidate ahead when they’re really not, they run the risk of their voters staying home and consequently, giving the election to the Conservative candidate they tried to bamboozle. Trump voters are also staying hidden; they don’t want to deal with the Liberals’ nastiness so they keep to themselves until Election Day. Wait and see how many people come out for Trump; it may be shocking.

    I am waiting for this and hope it happens in November.

    4. Trump’s Spent Virtually Nothing; Hillary Over $ 100 Million–Here we are in mid to late August and Trump is staying close to Clinton having spent little to defeat 16 other hopeful Republican nominees, get through his national convention with the nomination and finally, begin the general election campaign. Most honest political insiders and campaign people are astonished at this. It’s never been done before. So let’s not forget it.

    Simultaneously, Clinton has spent a hundred million or more (her campaign won’t release specifics so you can be sure it’s a boatload) just getting past a Socialist curmudgeon, her convention and the start of the Damning of Trump.

    As the news media has ignored how much Hillary is spending, they have a morbid fascination with how much Trump has to spend. Look, Donald Trump is the only candidate in American history who can write himself a $ 250 million check just to get things started; out of petty cash. This ability is not only sui generis but also bespeaks another underlying Trump advantage: He doesn’t depend on outside patrons, lobbyists, corporations and Wall Street, as Hillary clearly does.

    5. Hillary’s Future is VERY Uncertain; an ‘October Surprise?’–Definitely. Hillary’s lies simply must catch up to her eventually. There’s a simple truth that we all learn as children: that liars always get their just desserts. Even Hillary’s base doesn’t trust her. Her party doesn’t trust her. President Obama doesn’t trust her. She, along with her disgraced husband, are unconvincing truth-tellers. They just cannot be believed about anything.

    So this leaves Hillary only one competitive option: Call Donald Trump a liar at every turn. Say he’s dangerous. Say he can’t be trusted with the nuclear codes. Say he doesn’t have the right “temperament.” And hope all that sticks.

    If we are to believe Julian Assange, there will be an ‘October Surprise.’ The drip, drip, drip of the dual investigations on her email server and the Clinton Global Initiative have taken their toll on her and her campaign and will yield more damaging info in the run-up to the election.

    The dreadful Iran Deal and her involvement in the early days of its strategic evolution with also continue to hurt her.

    The Democratic Party, Liberal media and Hillary’s own supporters are scared. They try to hide it but they can’t. There’s good reason for their worries.

    If I’m Donald Trump and his campaign, I’d much rather have my opponents all worried about me than the reverse. Psychologically, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy to be afraid before going into battle. Ask a Spartan.

    So in conclusion, I don’t believe that Hillary Clinton, with all her baggage packed in steamer trunks, can beat Donald Trump.

    No matter how much the Liberal news media presses and supports her against one of their central reason for existing–to keep elected officials honest through oversight–people won;t believe them. There’s no media oversight of Hillary Clinton. While Donald Trump is constantly scrutinized with a magnifying glass by a rabidly Leftist media.

    I could be wrong.

    I’ve been wrong so many times before.

    But I don’t think I’m wrong here and now.

    Let’s hope for the future of America that Hillary Clinton loses in November.

    Any other result continues America’s eight-year-long journey down the wrong path.

    9 Habits Of Highly Emotionally Intelligent People

    2016-08-18-1471553223-9662730-9HabitsofHighlyEmotionallyIntelligentPeopleHP.jpg

    When emotional intelligence first appeared to the masses, it threw a massive wrench into what many people had always assumed was the sole source of success–IQ.

    How much of an impact does emotional intelligence (EQ) have on your personal and professional success? The short answer is: a lot! It’s a powerful way to focus your energy in one direction with a tremendous result.

    Emotional intelligence is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results. Emotional intelligence is made up of four core skills that pair up under two primary competencies: personal competence and social competence.

    2016-08-18-1471553284-8906503-9HabitsofHighlyEmotionallyIntelligentPeopleHP2.jpg

    Personal competence comprises your self-awareness and self-management skills, which focus more on you individually than on your interactions with other people. Personal competence is your ability to stay aware of your emotions and manage your behavior and tendencies.

    • Self-Awareness is your ability to accurately perceive your emotions and stay aware of them as they happen.
    • Self-Management is your ability to use awareness of your emotions to stay flexible and positively direct your behavior.

    Social competence is made up of your social awareness and relationship management skills; social competence is your ability to understand other people’s moods, behavior, and motives in order to respond effectively and improve the quality of your relationships.

    • Social Awareness is your ability to accurately pick up on emotions in other people and understand what is really going on.
    • Relationship Management is your ability to use awareness of your emotions and the others’ emotions to manage interactions successfully.

    Despite the significance of emotional intelligence, its intangible nature makes it very difficult to know which behaviors you should emulate. So I’ve analyzed the data from the million-plus people TalentSmart has tested in order to identify the habits that set high-EQ people apart.

    1. They’re relentlessly positive. Keep your eyes on the news for any length of time, and you’ll see that it’s just one endless cycle of war, violent attacks, fragile economies, failing companies, and environmental disasters. It’s easy to think the world is headed downhill fast. And who knows? Maybe it is. But emotionally intelligent people don’t worry about that because they don’t get caught up in things they can’t control. They focus their energy on directing the two things that are completely within their power–their attention and their effort. Numerous studies have shown that optimists are physically and psychologically healthier than pessimists. They also perform better at work. Remind yourself of this the next time a negative train of thought takes hold of you.

    2. They have a robust emotional vocabulary. All people experience emotions, but it is a select few who can accurately identify them as they occur, which is problematic because unlabeled emotions often go misunderstood, which leads to irrational choices and counterproductive actions. People with high EQs master their emotions because they understand them, and they use an extensive vocabulary of feelings to do so. While many people might describe themselves as simply feeling “bad,” emotionally intelligent people can pinpoint whether they feel “irritable,” “frustrated,” “downtrodden,” or “anxious.” The more specific your word choice, the better insight you have into exactly how you are feeling, what caused it, and what you should do about it.

    3. They’re assertive. People with high EQs balance good manners, empathy, and kindness with the ability to assert themselves and establish boundaries. This tactful combination is ideal for handling conflict. When most people are crossed, they default to passive or aggressive behavior. Emotionally intelligent people remain balanced and assertive by steering themselves away from unfiltered emotional reactions. This enables them to neutralize difficult and toxic people without creating enemies.

    4. They’re curious about other people. It doesn’t matter if they’re introverted or extroverted, emotionally intelligent people are curious about everyone around them. This curiosity is the product of empathy, one of the most significant gateways to a high EQ. The more you care about other people and what they’re going through, the more curiosity you’re going to have about them.

    5. They forgive, but they don’t forget. Emotionally intelligent people live by the motto “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” They forgive in order to prevent a grudge, but they never forget. The negative emotions that come with holding onto a grudge are actually a stress response. Holding on to that stress can have devastating health consequences, and emotionally intelligent people know to avoid this at all costs. However, offering forgiveness doesn’t mean they’ll give a wrongdoer another chance. Emotionally intelligent people will not be bogged down by mistreatment from others, so they quickly let things go and are assertive in protecting themselves from future harm.

    6. They won’t let anyone limit their joy. When your sense of pleasure and satisfaction are derived from comparing yourself to others, you are no longer the master of your own happiness. When emotionally intelligent people feel good about something that they’ve done, they won’t let anyone’s opinions or accomplishments take that away from them. While it’s impossible to turn off your reactions to what others think of you, you don’t have to compare yourself to others, and you can always take people’s opinions with a grain of salt. That way, no matter what other people are thinking or doing, your self-worth comes from within. Regardless of what people think of you at any particular moment, one thing is certain–you’re never as good or bad as they say you are.

    7. They make things fun. Emotionally intelligent people know exactly what makes them happy, and they constantly work to bring this happiness into everything they do. They turn monotonous work into games, go the extra mile to make people they care about happy, and take breaks to enjoy the things they love no matter how busy they are. They know that injecting this fun into their lives fights off stress and builds lasting resilience.

    8. They are difficult to offend. If you have a firm grasp of whom you are, it’s difficult for someone to say or do something that gets your goat. Emotionally intelligent people are self-confident and open-minded, which creates a pretty thick skin.

    9. They squash negative self-talk. A big step in developing emotional intelligence involves stopping negative self-talk in its tracks. The more you ruminate on negative thoughts, the more power you give them. Most of our negative thoughts are just that–thoughts, not facts. You can stop the negative and pessimistic things your inner voice says by writing them down. Once you’ve taken a moment to slow down the negative momentum of your thoughts, you will be more rational and clear-headed in evaluating their veracity. You can bet that your statements aren’t true any time you use words such as “never,” “worst,” and “ever.” If your statements still look like facts once they’re on paper, take them to a friend and see if he or she agrees with you. Then the truth will surely come out.

    Bringing It All Together

    Unlike your IQ, your EQ is highly malleable. As you train your brain by repeatedly practicing new emotionally intelligent behaviors, your brain builds the pathways needed to make them into habits. Before long, you will begin responding to your surroundings with emotional intelligence without even having to think about it. And as your brain reinforces the use of new behaviors, the connections supporting old, destructive behaviors will die off.

    Why These Three Arm Workouts Have Stood The Test Of Time

    2016-08-19-1471639951-7195534-fitness818722_1280.jpg

    Tried and true arm training.

    In the digital age of social media, five minutes is the same as five lifetimes. Things change at an increasingly rapid rate and the fitness industry is no different. So when certain movements come up time and time again, you have to wonder, “why have these exercises stood the test of time?” While there are as many theories as there are workouts, one theory we can be sure of is that it works. Without further ado we present the top #3 arm movements, that work!

    Incline dumbbell curls

    Performed on an incline bench (duh.) the incline dumbbell curl focuses on the long head portion of the bicep muscle. In order to apply maximum pressure on the muscle place the bench between 30-45%

    Standing Barbell curl

    If you’re looking for size, this exercise will add some serious meat on your bones. The reason why it’s so effective is because it requires weight control, balance, and proper technique to be done correctly.

    If it gets too easy, try alternating your grip. Still too easy? Try the exercise seated.

    Diamond pushups

    Diamonds are forever, unfortunately your gains aren’t. The diamond pushup should be a staple in every fitness enthusiasts workout. What’s great about it is that you can do it anywhere, you don’t need equipment, and it’ll give your chest a good pump.

    One of the most effective ways to use the diamond pushup is to do something called “15 downs.” This is when you start with 15 pushups, then get on your back and do 15 sit-ups, then go back into the pushup positions and do 14 pushups. Keep going down one every set until you get to zero. By the end you’ll be sweaty, tired, and have a better workout from push-ups than you ever thought you would.

    These movements are great in between sets, or as primary sets on their own. Give these workouts a try and let us know by hitting up our comments below or head on over to our official Facebook and Twitter.

    Here’s How Many Calories 6 Summer Olympic Sports Burn

    How hard is it to be an Olympic athlete? Indescribably so, says Marko Damiani, a personal trainer at DavidBartonGym Century City in Los Angeles, who nearly qualified for the 2004 games in Greece as a member of Croatia’s Taekwondo team. “Nobody knows how much blood, sweat and tears goes into that medal,” he says. But there’s at least one aspect of Olympian effort that’s more easily quantifiable: calories in and out, though the amounts vary drastically by sport, duration and the athlete’s body size and resting metabolic rate, or how many calories he or she burns doing nothing. Here’s how six summer Olympic sports stack up:

    1. Track and field: marathon

    Soon-to-be four-time Olympian Mebrahtom Keflezighi can zip through a marathon in less than two hours and 10 minutes – a pace that burns about 2,339 calories in his 125-pound body, according to calculations using the Compendium of Physical Activities. One of the biggest challenges of fueling for those 26.2 miles? “You don’t want to eat too much because you do kind of want to be light and lean,” says Teal Burrell, a participant in the U.S. Olympic marathon trials, “but my thing has always been making sure you’re getting enough.” During training, she generally eats stir fry for dinner and “typical runner fare” like toast, bananas and peanut butter before morning runs.

    2. Track and field: 100 meters

    It took less than 11 seconds for Allyson Felix to sprint her 100-meter leg in 2012 – a clip that burns just a handful of calories in that moment. But that hardly means sprinters’ bodies aren’t calorie-torching machines. In fact, one study found that exercising in just five 30-second intense bursts – a total of only 2.5 minutes – burns about 200 extra calories a day. “Nobody’s just fueling for that minute,” says Felicia Stoler, an exercise physiologist and registered dietitian in Red Bank, New Jersey. While endurance athletes emphasize carbohydrates, for instance, sprinters may prioritize foods that don’t weigh them down, and hydration. “[Athletes] need to be well-fueled, period,” Stoler says.

    3. Gymnastics

    When petite powerhouse Gabby Douglas takes the floor for a 90-second-or-less gymnastics routine, viewers can feel their hearts pound and breath escape them. But Douglas? Her 110-pound body will only burn about five more calories in those moments than she’d burn at rest, according to calculations considering duration, body weight and a measurement of exercise intensity. But fuel is crucially important for gymnasts, “who can really struggle with making sure they get enough nutrition” between multiple events, says Jessica Crandall, a former professional dancer and registered dietitian in Denver who works with athletes. She recommends they eat easily digestible snacks with a balance of carbohydrates and protein, such as granola, string cheese and smoothies.

    4. Swimming

     

    Rumor has it that Michael Phelps eats at least 12,000 calories a day – an enormous amount, yes, but also one that’s needed to account for the 5,182 more calories his 200-pound body might burn during six hours of training, according to calculations using the Compendium of Physical Activities. (A single under-two-minute event, meanwhile, burns closer to 40 calories). Consuming so many calories is “very difficult,” Stoler says, and many of them would need to come from healthy fats like nuts, nut butters and avocados. Hydrating effectively and avoiding cramping can also be tough for swimmers, Stoler adds. “Swimming is among the more challenging sports” to fuel for, she says.

    5. Archery

    Archery isn’t the most buzzed-about sport, nor is it the most physically strenuous: 190-pound Brady Ellison, who took home the silver medal in the 2012 summer games, for instance, will only burn about 25 calories during the four minutes he’ll have to shoot six arrows. Still, nutrition is important for sports that tax the mind, says Crandall, a spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. “Mental clarity comes from food,” she says. “When we overfeed ourselves, sometimes it makes us sluggish; our brains get a little fatigued.” Athletes and laypeople alike, then, can benefit from brain foods such as fruit, nuts and whole grains, she says.

    6. Taekwondo

    Team USA’s four Taekwondo competitors range in size from 140-pound Paige McPherson to 240-pound Stephen Lambdin, and they will burn about 66 and 112 calories, respectively, during three two-minute fights, according to calculations using the Compendium of Physical Activities. Still, their diets are likely similar, says Damiani, who ate a lot of pasta and other carbohydrates before competing, and protein – think fish, meat, eggs and protein shakes – to rebuild muscle after. Whether training a professional athlete or an average Joe looking to drop a few pounds, Damiani recommends similar-quality foods. “The food is always the same,” he says. “Like gas for a car, premium is always the best.”

    Here’s How Many Calories 6 Olympic Sports Burn was originally published on U.S. News & World Report.

    Trump: Pretending to be Presidential

    Trump has again shaken up his staff. He now has had as many campaign managers as he has had wives. He previously parted ways with Corey Lewandowski, then with Paul Manafort. Now Kellyanne Conway has taken command of this “huuge” ship of state– perhaps a vessel more like the Titanic or “Ship of Fools,” rather than the “Good Ship Lollypop” image that the Trump camp is attempting to project.

    Smart Republicans are jumping ship, some for political reasons and others for moral motives. My advice to Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and Reince Priebus is to get in a life boat while seats are still available– save yourself from this shipwreck.

    Or is Trump really changing? Kellyanne Conway has launched a new Trump-Lite to make him look more “presidential.” Gone is the orange spray tan, make-up, or whatever Halloween substance he had on his face. Now he uses the Teleprompters that he previously ridiculed, and is out seeking big donors, something he formerly bragged he didn’t need or want.

    And a couple days ago, Trump apologized (sort of), telling a crowd at a rally in North Carolina, “Sometimes, in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that, and I regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues.”

    However, Trump followed that ambiguous mea culpa with “But one thing I can promise you is this: I will always tell you the truth.” Of course, that statement was itself a lie. You just can’t keep up with this guy.

    In fact, in December of 2015, Pulitzer Prize winning PolitiFact named him the worst lying presidential candidate, stating they have “been documenting Trump’s statements on our Truth-O-Meter, where we’ve rated 76 percent of them Mostly False, False or Pants on Fire, out of 77 statements checked. No other politician has as many statements rated so far down on the dial.” The same month Factcheck.org named him the “King of Whoppers”

    The coup de grâce of Trump playing president was Friday when he and his current Vice Presidential candidate Mike Pence went to flood ravished Louisiana, unabashedly using the flood victims to promote Trump as looking presidential. He did this even though Louisiana Governor Jon Bel Edwards didn’t want politicians showboating there. A spokesman for the Governor reportedly stated, “We welcome him to LA but not for a photo-op. Instead we hope he’ll consider volunteering or making a sizable donation to the LA Flood Relief Fund to help the victims of the storm.”

    And Friday Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told ABC News, “It’s also presidential today to have him and Governor Pence going to Louisiana in a decidedly nonpolitical event, no press allowed, going to help people on the ground who are in need.”

    What? “Nonpolitical?” Ha! If not political, why did Trump chastise President Obama for not yet going. “No press allowed?” How did we all see it if no press was allowed? And what did they do to help people on the ground? Trump was seen in Louisiana signing his autograph on his hats, t-shirts, and other paraphernalia– but did anyone a catch glimpse of him signing a donation check?

    Trump may pretend to be presidential, but that doesn’t make him so. There’s an old saying “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.” Oink Oink.

    Angels and Molecules

    The other day my wife, Ana, and I went out for a few hours. When we came back, we parked the car, entered through the downstairs garage door, came up to the first floor and into the living room. Where we saw our intrepid dog Ben, standing on the back of the living room couch, gazing out the window. Waiting.

    To explain: Ana is the center of Ben’s universe, the sun around which all his planets revolve. She is his oxygen, his A to Z, his why the universe exists. He was waiting for her.

    But Ben has gone deaf. He had somehow missed seeing the car’s approach, and hadn’t heard it come down the drive, or the motorized grind of the garage door opening, or our footsteps up the stairs. As far as he knew, we were still gone.

    2016-08-19-1471640868-7835203-Ben2.jpg

    Moments after I snapped this picture, I clapped, loud enough for him to hear, and he turned his head and saw Ana — and his little dog face broke into an ecstatic OMG, why didn’t someone tell me?! and all was right with the world.

    It made me think of Beethoven.

    Late in life, Beethoven was attending the premier of his ninth (and final) symphony. “Attending” is perhaps not the right word. Although he was by this time deaf as a board, he strongly felt he should be on hand to guide the musicians along in this huge and enormously challenging composition, so he stood right up there on stage, by the conductor, and gestured like crazy throughout the performance, doing his utmost to shape the right tempi and dynamics and phrasing — even though he could not hear a note.

    After the last chord was sounded, the composer stood on the stage, breathing heavily, facing the orchestra. The audience, who had never heard anything like this before (nor, for that matter, had anyone on the planet), erupted into raucous, deafening applause.

    The composer was oblivious. He had no idea anyone was even clapping. The mezzo-soprano soloist had to approach him (with tears in her eyes, and can you blame her?) and tug on his arm to get him to turn around and see the thunderous response his music has evoked.

    This got me thinking:

    What if we’re all like Ben and Beethoven?

    What if we are surrounded by all the applause, but just don’t hear it? If the center of our universe, the thing we love most, has already arrived and is standing there watching us, but we just don’t know it yet?

    I remember as a teenager, taking a walk one morning in my neighborhood, going blocks and blocks in my quiet suburban town, a Sunday, hardly anyone about. I’d been reading about physics and metaphysics and different thinkers’ understandings of how reality was assembled. I remember stopping, standing, and gazing out along a path down to a field.

    It suddenly hit me that I was surrounded by billions, trillions, quadrillions of molecules, atoms, particles, all buzzing and humming and soaring in orbits around each other, vibrating like mad. I was a musician and student of acoustics, and I knew this basic fact of life: vibration makes noise. I was standing in the midst of the most colossal symphony imaginable. I just couldn’t hear it.

    Although for those few moments, it felt as if I almost did.

    There is an ancient tradition in Bali which holds that a gamelan orchestra, that most mesmerizing of human musical ensembles, doesn’t “make” its music. No, say the Balinese, that rippling stream of rhythm and melody is already happening, already going on, all around us, all the time. The job of the gamelan musicians is not to create the music, but simply to catch it, like a crystal set picking up radio waves and stepping them down to audible form.

    What if we are surrounded by symphonies?

    What if our ancestors, departed parents, and all those loved ones who have shuffled off before us are in fact standing right beside us, beaming with pleasure at our antics, cheering us on?

    What if throngs of angels are stomping and hooting and laughing and shouting, exuberant as a sold-out Bruce Springsteen auditorium just to be there watching us, applauding our every mundane move like a chorus of thunderclaps?

    You know, I think they may be.

    You can almost hear them, can’t you?

    8 Easy Ways To Protect Your Back

    Fend off back pain

    In any three-month period, about a quarter of American adults have at least one day of back pain, according to the National Institutes of Health. The first time often happens between ages 30 and 40 and, like all fun things, tends to become more common with age. “After the common cold, back pain is the most common reason adults seek physicians,” says physical therapist Eric Robertson, PT, DPT, OCS, a spokesperson for the American Physical Therapy Association

    Most cases aren’t serious and go away on their own—we’ll get to that later—but wouldn’t it be nice to avoid them entirely? Some simple changes to your daily routine might just do that, suggests Robertson. Some might be familiar, and we’ll go over a few basics, to get them right. But it may surprise you how many things you can do every day to protect your back. 

    1. Stretch your hips

    You know about core strength—keeping your abdominal muscles strong to support your back. But hip muscles are equally important for preventing back problems, emphasizes Robertson. These are called the gluteal muscles, which include the muscles in your rear end, as well as those that wrap around the side of the hip. “One works to extend your hips, the other to move the hips out to the side,” explains Robertson. 

    One simple way to stretch your “glutes” is to lie on your back and pull your knees up to your chest. Hold for 15 to 30 seconds, and repeat two or three times. “This keeps the hips from getting stiff,” says Robertson. “The more you move your hips, the better off you are.”  

    2. Strengthen your hips

    You’ll want your glutes not just limber, but strong, too. Try a “mini-squat,” suggests Robertson.Stand about about six or seven inches away from a wall and squat—just a little. No need to make the top of your legs parallel to the floor—that’s a 90-degree angle that trainers often recommend. Instead, aim for about a 20-degree angle. “It’s a nice safe exercise to do.” 

    Another exercise: Stand up from a sitting position. Sit on the edge of a chair, and stand up without using your arms. “As simple as this sounds, if you do it 5 or 10 times, three times a day, you’ll get really strong.” 

    A third exercise: Balance on one leg. “Hold on to a counter that won’t move, and stand on one leg,” says Robertson. “Keep your pelvis level. This works on the gluteal muscles on the side, and improves balance.” 

    3. Stop worrying about your posture

    Here’s something you don’t have to fret about: Standing up straight. “There’s actually a poor correlation between posture and back pain,” says Robertson. “When we fix posture, we don’t see back pain get better. In any case, if you tell someone to stand up straight, they can only do that for a little while. But if you help them develop the muscles to stand up straight, they can do it all day long.” 

    4. Take micro-breaks from the chair

    Now that you’re practicing standing up from your chair, do it frequently! Sitting for long periods is bad for your back. It puts pressure on your disks, and it also relaxes your gluteal muscles too much. “Too long in a seated position, and these muscles that are important to stabilize the spine get into a more relaxed state than you want.” 

    Solution: Standing micro-breaks. “As soon as you stand up, you activate your gluteal muscles, your core, and your pelvic flood muscles,” says Robertson. His advice: Every 15 minutes or so, stand up, stretch your back, go for a tiny walk, and sit back down again. Every hour or so, if you can, get up and take a slightly longer walking break.

    5. Lift your grandkids the right way

    The standard advice on how to lift heavy objects—that’s your grandkids to you—is always important, according to the American Physical Therapy Association. 

    When lifting a child from the floor:stand close, keeping your back straight, and place one food slightly in front of the other.Bend your hips and knees to lower yourself onto one knee. Now grab your grandchild with both arms, hold him close to your body, tighten your stomach muscles, and push up with your legs so that you return to a standing position. Put him back down on the floor with the same maneuver in reverse. Whatever you’re lifting, “Lift with your legs, not your back,” says Robertson. “The stronger you keep your hip muscles, and the more limber, the more likely you will be to lift with your legs rather than your back.” 

    6. Take a daily walk

    “Walking is absolutely the best exercise for your back,” says Robertson. For one, it’s the best position to reduce pressure on your spine. “You have the least amount of stress on your spine when you’re up and walking.” Standing is better than sitting, but standing for too long in one position is more stressful than gently moving along. “As you walk, you strengthen your hip muscles, and stabilize your spine and back.” 

    Bonus: If you do have back pain, regular walking may reduce it. This could be because when you exercise the body releases endogenous opiates or dopamine, both feel-good chemicals in the body. Whatever the reason, the evidence is clear that “walking reduces the perception of pain,” says Robertson. 

    7. Be careful shoveling snow

    There’s a reason why we’re warned against just picking up the snow shovel and having at it. One is the cardiovascular risk of going from inactivity to heavy exertion so quickly. But it’s a really good way to throw your back out. One reason: Water is heavy. Another is that the weight is so far from your body that you’re creating a lever to put extra pressure on your back muscles. “The further away from the axis, the more rotation force there is,” says Robertson, for all you Archimedes fans out there. “You’re guiding a shovel that’s four feet from your back, and you have to work hard to stabilize your back.” His advice: “Warm up, stretch your hips, don’t fill up the shovel, and take frequent breaks.” 

    8. Chill out

    Chronic stress not only tightens your muscles, which shortens them and makes it harder to support your back—but it also increases your sensitivity to pain. Anything you do to help you break the stress cycle—relaxation exercises, aerobics, meditation,yoga—can help. But if you get recurrent back pain, one stress you can work on is the fear of back pain itself. 

    “It’s very clear that the more stressed you are, the more likely you are to feel pain,” says Robertson. “You’ll have more trouble with any aches and pains that you have.” If you start to feel anxiety or fear about your pain, it can make the pain worse. “You feel fearful, and think your back pain will never go away.” 

    More on stress

    Stress and its affect on back pain is one reason why Robertson often emphasizes to his patients that the vast majority of back pain isn’t serious—and it goes away on its own. Certainly you should see your doctor if you have certain symptoms such as numbness or weakness, or a change in bowel or bladder function, which may indicate a medical condition. And see your doc if your back pain persists. “For a small proportion of the population, back pain is chronic,” admits Robertson. “But for most it’s self-limiting—it gets better with time.” 

    Just knowing that most back pain gets better over time can help you lower your stress level, which, in turn, can help you get over any back pain quicker. “Knowing it’s not really serious helps to reduce your fear. It goes a long way to helping people to continue to move when they have back pain.”

    Back to School Means Heavy Backpacks And Back Pain

    With school is just around the corner, children will be abandoning the playground and returning to the classroom. With an emphasis on providing a sound education for this young generation, children are given a literal “heavier” workload year after year. This has translated into more books and more accessories, which greatly contributes to the normalcy and reliance on carrying backpacks. However, despite their usefulness, backpacks can cause serious back pain if overloaded or worn improperly.

    2016-08-20-1471714844-4735983-Untitled.png

    To understand how heavy backpacks contribute to back pain, it’s important to look at the composition of the back. The adolescent spine is composed of 33 bones called vertebrae with discs between them that act as natural shock absorbers. When a heavy backpack is incorrectly placed over a child’s shoulders, the weight of the bag can force the child backwards. Usually, children counteract this force by arching or bending forward at the hips, causing the spine to compress unnaturally and contributing to neck, shoulder and back pain.

    2016-08-20-1471714971-3849456-1.png

    The best way to prevent lower back pain is to either avoid overstuffing a backpack. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, children should limit their backpack weight to between 10 and 15 percent of their body weight. Backpacks weighing more than this are too heavy to maintain a standing posture. This weight causes children to lean forward, affecting the natural curve in the lumbar and lower back regions resulting in variety of orthopaedic injuries.

    Dr. Ebraheim says,
    “Kids these days think backpacks are moving libraries, carrying heavier weights back and forth to school and between classes without taking breaks. The weight can cause a variety of back problems including scoliosis. This is a problem not only for the child’s health but also because back pain can interfere with the learning environment. Kids need to feel healthy during the day so they can keep up with their schoolwork injury free.”

    Wearing a backing improperly can also cause back injury. Many times children will sling their backpacks over only one shoulder. This uneven distribution of weight causes the child to compensate by leaning to one side. The frequent imbalance causes muscle strain. The problem can be exacerbated if backpacks have tight or narrow straps, as they can interfere with circulation and nerves.

    There are, however, some simple ways to prevent your child from developing back pain. First, it’s important to monitor the weight of children’s backpacks to ensure that they are not overloading them. Second, purchase a backpack with wide, padded straps to distribute the load over the shoulders evenly. Backpacks that have waist and additional shoulder straps may also prove beneficial in transferring the load to the hips and preventing slouching. Lastly, it’s important to concentrate the bulk of the weight closest to your child’s body in the middle of the back. This will help your child achieve better posture and balance, while preventing possible falls.

    Ovid on Cosmetics

    Ovid on Cosmetics


    The Medicamina Faciei Femineae is a didactic elegy that showcases an early example of Ovid’s trademark combination of poetic instruction and trivial subject matter. Exploring female beauty and cosmeceuticals, with particular emphasis on the concept of cultus, the poem presents five practical recipes for treatments for Roman women. Covering both didactic parody and pharmacological reality, this deceptively complex poem possesses wit and vivacity and provides an important insight into Roman social mores and day-to-day activities.

    The first full study in English devoted to this little-researched but multi-faceted poem, Ovid on Cosmetics includes an introduction that situates the poem within its literary heritage of didactic and elegiac poetry, its place in Ovid’s oeuvre and its relevance to social values, personal aesthetics and attitudes to female beauty in Roman society. The Latin text is presented on parallel pages alongside a new translation, and all Latin words and phrases are translated for the non-specialist reader. Detailed commentary notes elucidate the text and individual phrases still further.

    Ovid on Cosmetics presents and explicates this witty, subversive yet significant poem. Its attention to the technicalities of cosmeceuticals and cosmetics, including detailed analyses of individual ingredients and the effects of specific creams and makeup, make this work a significant contribution to the beauty industry in antiquity.

    Poor Donald Runs For Black Cover

    Currently polling at one percent of the African-American vote and with so few days left before November 8th, why on earth is Trump looking for black support? Even if he were to move the needle slightly, the numbers wouldn’t come close to digging himself out of the hole in which he currently finds himself.

    Yes, I’m sure he’s hurt and a bit disappointed that he is on track to get the lowest percentage of the black vote since Robert E. Lee. Who can blame him? He’s a reality TV star and the first lesson in TV is get a cool black friend to show how cool you are. Trump’s only got Omarosa.

    Obviously Trump doesn’t give a damn about the black vote. But he does care very much about the non-racist white working and middle class vote.

    From the moment he politicized his entertainment persona by becoming the figurehead of the “First African-American-President-Is-Really-an-African-Born Muslim Movement,” he threw his lot in with what is called the “alt-right” (if by “alt” you mean white supremacist/Neo Nazi/truther/militia nutballs). He is proudly and explicitly anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant and the best predicator for identifying a Trump supporter is their fondness for the n-word. So no, black folks, whether we have anything to lose or not, are not going to throw our lot in with a man who’s biggest fan is David Duke.

    Since no other explicitly white nationalist candidate has ever made it this far (sorry Pat Buchanan and George Wallace), Trump finds himself in uncharted, choppy waters. He had the hardcore white racist vote at hello, and for now he’s still hanging on to the “racist adjacent:” non-racist whites willing to rationalize or overlook his sexist, anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant dictates.

    But it’s only dawning on him now that there aren’t enough of them to put him in the White House.

    Trump desperately needs to win back white voters who were once understandably drawn to his projected strength and perceived focus on their issues, but who, increasingly, have been unsettled by his erratic behavior and intemperate ugliness. After all, who wants to vote for an asshole? Doesn’t that make you an asshole yourself?

    So of course his recent lip service to African-Americans isn’t actually for African-Americans.

    It’s whites that he needs to convince he’s not a racist. He just plays one on TV.

    The Eternal Beauty Of Depression

    I am one of the lucky ones.

    Year ago, after a torturous 8 month bout of out-of-nowhere SCREECHING Tinnitus, my brain, which up to that point had been in FIGHT mode, switched over to FLIGHT mode which is the equivalent of living in the Middle East during a 24/7 drone strike.

    In terms of war this was PTSD at the highest level of supreme panic.
    You are no longer capable of sitting still because you FEEL that you are in constant, mortal danger. Any sound louder than a whisper races through your bloodstream right to the panic center of your soul in under a second, so I had to disconnect all my phones because one ring alone was like a nuclear bomb going off in my central nervous system.

    Depression is a supreme crisis of faith and amongst the many things that are rusty scalpel sliced out of you is your inner voice that gives you options and or simply tells you to cut it out.

    I lived alone in Los Angeles at the time. My kids were off to college and I was my own worst nightmare roomate. I lost forty pounds from pacing in circles 8 hours a day.

    LA is not a good place to fall apart. People in my business do not like to approach anyone who may have the communicable disease and accompanying scent of failure on them. The only preventative condom-like measure is to keep your distance. I remember standing at a urinal next to someone I was in a comedy room with for ten months and he ignored me.

    So why am I lucky?

    Because I was finally rescued in the most improbable way. My once upon a time writing partner and lover who had moved out of LA, screaming like her hair was on fire (which she was always destined to do from day one of her arrival. She did NOT suffer fools and good luck with that in Hollywood which is overpopulated by them. Do not confuse them with dreamers, as I am a card carrying one. I’m talking about the Holden Caulfield despised phonies).

    Leslie had moved to Westchester, which as a Queens boy native, I had heard of, but honestly I not only didn’t know where the Hudson River went before I left, I didn’t even know what was on the other side of the Throggs Neck Bridge.

    Well what was on the other side was light and love and support on a level I could never have imagined. Having no alternative than my own long planned suicide, I was finally convinced to throw everything into storage and move into the top floor of her 19th venture house.

    Yeah, at first blush it felt weird but I am here, some 11 years later, to tell you that it was the best decision that I made…that I had no choice to make.

    Between her get-off-the-couch and go take a walk nudging, a new therapist, new meds, new friends, endless yoga and an abundance of east coast light and love, I little by little found my way out of the bigger than my life maze.

    I suffered a lot of loss along the way. My best friend succumbed to pancreatic cancer. My mom died. My therapist died. My chiropractor died.

    At first all that felt like endlessly compounding Tetris-like blocks of punishment. But before my loving shrink passed he said to me “You have to metaphorically die…and then the clouds will part.” He died before I could understand what her meant…until it all came to me th day I was sitting in a ravaged, Key West garden that I noticed one day was growing back. It was not the SAME garden…it was a brand new version. It had died…and come back. And in that moment, I not only GOT it, but I looked up and the clouds literally parted.

    You have to stop craving your former selve when you are Humpty Dumpty shatter broken and instead of fretting about gluing all the pieces back together, you instead, kiss each piece goodbye, thank them for their service…and then release them to the wind.

    And when you do, I promise, you will instantly become the Phoenix of rising out of the ashes fame.

    Being alone is just an illusion. There is support and love waiting for you EVERYWHERE.

    Just go looking for it and the invisible will magically become visible.

    Life for my has never been better. I’ve become an impossibly prolific writer of pilots, plays and books…and I’m about to head back to LA for the first time in 11 years to mount a new series that I co-created.

    It’s not so much that dreams come true (they tend to at their own rate).

    It’s more, I think that life comes true.
    And by the way: the biggest lesson that comes from dealing with Tinnitus?

    You learn that you never knew how to listen.

    To yourself or to anyone else.

    And when the warning siren stops, nothing is more beautiful than the sound of who we really are.

    In other words, I can hear you now.
