Can Hillary Unite Center-Left And Left?

Hillary Clinton’s selection of Tim Kaine confirms that we’ve always known about her. Like her husband and like Barack Obama, Clinton is a creature of the center-left, and not the left. In an ordinary year, that would be just the ticket for winning the White House. This year, with anti-establishment sentiment at a boil, center-left may not quite be enough.

The differences between center-left and left can be charted in several distinct respects – ideology, policy, personnel, and passion. This year the Democrats will need to bridge all four. Can Hillary do it?

Her bet is that passion will take a care of itself. The threat of Donald Trump to core Democratic voting blocs (and to the Republic) ought to produce faithful support and high turnout. Tim Kaine is nobody’s idea of a radical, but the picture of Kaine as boring was wrong; he gives a rousing speech.

Barack Obama and Elizabeth Warren, no slouches, will be with Clinton-Kaine on the campaign trail.

There is some latent passion — the excitement of the first woman president — to be roused, if Clinton can find her best voice. Passion minus hate should be the high ground of this election.

What remains to be seen is whether Clinton can rouse the kind of excitement that Sanders, preaching drastic change, produced in the 2016 primary season; and that Obama, as a figure of the center-left, achieved in 2008 as a figure of hope and as a breakthrough African American president. Clinton lost to Obama that year in large part because she was not his match.

American has yearned for an outsider president, because the insiders have not delivered for regular people. And it is hard to get more insider than the Clintons.

This brings us to the role of ideology. The center-left story is that American capitalism needs adjustments around the margins. The left story is that the system is not delivering for most people, and needs what other countries would call social democracy if not some outright socialism.

To a startling degree, Sanders, as a self-described democratic socialist, elicted socialist sentiments among large numbers of Democrats, especially the young. Sanders may have lost the nomination, but those feelings have not gone away.

Clinton can give a good speech about who is left behind, but she has a hard time sounding insurgent, much less radical. Kaine gave a terrific speech in Miami, contrasting his views with those of Trump. Debunking the mantra of “Make American Great Again,” Kaine declared, “Isn’t it great already?”

It’s a nice line and suggests that Democrats can do a sunnier brand of patriotism than Donald Trump, but my friend Todd Gitlin got off an even better line in a recent op-ed for the New York Times comparing 1968 and 2016: How about making America great at last — great for the people who are not benefitting from the current system?

That’s the Sanders/Warren appeal, and it speaks to so many young people. We will soon find out whether Clinton can do a convincing rendition of that story.

She calls herself, and her running mate, progressives who can get things done. To many ears, that sounds like incremental change at a time when change needs to be transformative.

Ideologically, Sanders has pushed Clinton to sound like more of a progressive. In policy terms, she has moved a good ways, on issues such as the minimum wage, trade, financial regulation, and economic help for students being crushed by debt.

In terms of personnel, a subject on which Elizabeth Warren has pushed Clinton hard, she needs to appoint senior people committed to drastic change, and not the usual suspects who are creatures of Wall Street. There are plenty of such people out there.

A good example is the current labor secretary and former assistant attorney general, Tom Perez, a runner up for Clinton’s running mate. Perez has demonstrated many of the good things that can be done by executive action. He’d make a great AG. http://prospect.org/article/subtle-force-tom-perez. There are people to the left of, say, Tim Kaine, who also know to get things done. We need more of them in government.

With at least one house likely to be in Republican hands, even if Clinton wins a convincing victory, she will have a hard time drastically changing policy in her first two years. If Clinton is to beat the usual jinx and avoid losing seats in her first mid-term election, she will need to sound more like a fighter and less like a conciliator — more like Franklin Roosevelt in 1934 than Barack Obama in 2010.

Clinton needs to hone one other skill that Roosevelt used brilliantly. He was not only a magnificent tribune of the need for sweeping change but he was a superb explainer in chief. In the very first of his famous fireside chats, FDR explained just how the banking system worked, how his reforms would rescue it, and why people should take money they had hidden in mattresses and put it back in banks. And the people did.

Clinton needs to explain just how the financial system’s lock on the economy prevents a broader form of prosperity. She needs to explain why it is nonsense that higher earnings for ordinary people would be bad for economy investment and growth. She needs to explain why the traditional approach to trade has been great for elites and bad for most Americans; and why higher taxes on the rich are needed to pay for all that the rest of us need.

To do this, she will need to break with some of her usual allies, and to find a stronger voice. Most of the people who were so moved by Bernie Sanders could vote for Clinton. The threat of Trump should be reason enough. But politics is driven by passion as well as by rational calculation. Clinton needs to give the broad spectrum of Democrats a reason to vote with real enthusiasm.

The Mindful Wisdom of Pokémon Go

I have to admit it: Pokémon Go is one of the funnest games I’ve played in a long time. I’m old enough to have missed the Pokémon phenomenon when it first came around, but it’s easy to see why the game is taking the world by storm. (It’s been downloaded by more than 30 million people in the last two weeks.) Catching pokémon is not only ridiculously fun, it’s community-oriented, it gets people out of the house, and it’s non-zero-sum. Because of that last feature, the game tends to build bonds rather than break them. For example, the place where I live with my partner is in easy range of three (three!) pokestops, so we can both catch the same pokémon! No scarcity models for us!

If you haven’t played the game yet, you may at least have seen crowds of people–not all of them children–gathered around a statue, fountain, or some other landmark, staring into their phones. Or ravening mobs stampeding after invisible objects in Central Park. Such scenes might lead you to believe that Pokémon Go is all about checking out of the real world and disappearing into a cloud of fantasy. But, as a meditation teacher and mindfulness coach, I’ve found that you can both enjoy the game and easily turn it into a system to generate awareness and presence. Here’s how:

more from Michael W. Taft

Pay Attention – Mindfulness meditation teaches you to pay attention to the present moment, and so does Pokémon Go. When you are about to cross the street for example, taking a moment to check in with your surroundings, the presence of onrushing 18-wheelers, open sewer holes, or similar dangers can enhance your health and wellbeing. Keep checking the map in the app against the actual streets, buildings, parks, bodies of water, and so on around you. And it’s awesome for teaching you all the art objects–many of which you may never have seen before–in your neighborhood, because lots of them are pokéstops.

Take a Moment to Breathe – It’s really easy to get so caught up in the excitement of the game that you lose all awareness of your body in the present. Pokémon Go does, however, offer you several excellent opportunities to take a pause and breathe. Whenever you switch screens, use this as a “time-out” to simply breathe and feel your body sensations. The game will wait until you take the next onscreen action. Also, because it gets you outside and walking, there are infinite chances to sit under trees, talk with your neighbors, or just enjoy some nature–all good times to check in with your breathing.

Feel Your Emotions – Pokémon Go is amzingly good at charging you with emotional ups, downs, and highwire excitment. That kind of emotional intensity is fabulous for mindfulness practice, if you take the time to check in with your feelings. For example, when you are about to attempt to catch a rare, valuable, and high-CP critter, take advantage of the pause before you toss your first pokéball. Feel the tension in your belly — is that anxiety or excitement? Notice the sensations of desire and fear that are at the emotional core of this moment. And if you lose a gym battle, pause to feel the sensations of disappointment and sorrow, before moving on. Win something big? Feel those awesome feelings as clearly as you can.

These hints should get you going, but don’t stop there. I’ve found that there are dozens of ways to use the game to not only have a blast, but also to bake mindfulness and presence into every moment. Give it a shot and thanks for reading. I have to take off now — there’s a Flareon in my house I want to get!

Transgender People Open Up About The Impact Of HIV On The Trans Community

An incredible new video series is brining together people across the spectrum of transgender identity for a candid conversation about HIV and the impact it has on the trans community.

The series videos, called “Empowered Trans,” features different conversations about the experience of being HIV-positive and trans, ranging from moments of diagnosis to discrimination and stigma to the process of navigating healthcare providers.

“The reality is that trans women are highly affected by this issue – both in our personal lives, but also as a broader community,” Bre Campbell, a Greater Than AIDS Ambassador, told The Huffington Post. “While I’ve faced discrimination, the reality is that I’m living a good life. What I want other trans women to understand is that you can live a happy, healthy life with HIV.”

Check videos from the “Empowered Trans” series above and below or head here to see more.

The ‘Couple Notion’ Is A Myth

We naturally think a couple is made of two people and for good reasons. When two individuals start being romantically involved and choose to be together, this notion of “couple,” or a pair of people teaming up on their life’s journey, takes form in our minds. Intuitively, we begin thinking of that new relationship as an ensemble of two folks. Right? Well, we think it’s false. The “Couple Notion” is a Myth.

2016-07-22-1469203944-4561891-Friendsatbeach_iStock_64983297_LARGE.jpg

You see when a couple gets formed, the new “unit” may look like it is a party of two, but the reality is very different. It’s more a group than anything else; it’s an extension of two. Both partners are bringing all kinds of folks along for the ride: parents, friends, siblings, work colleagues, maybe children, extended family members, ex’s, fellow college students, etc. And that group will change for sure as the couple lives on. Some new members will be added while others will simply leave. However, the couple’s reality is that its core group members will stick around and, like it or not, will have an influence on the couple’s relationship.

Soooooo… since a couple is truly an ensemble composed of a group of people, why are we surprised of its complexity? Look, human beings are emotional containers. We all start off the ride with what God has already poured in us, but as we go on, we continue to fill up our emotional containers with layers of physical and spiritual experiences. Some of these layers obviously get thicker than others and simply carry more sensitive weight. That’s why the fabric of it all makes up for who we are, or as many say, the product of our environment is simply “who we end up being.”

2016-07-22-1469204758-3709431-Coupleincrowd_iStock_71309497_XLARGE.jpg

That’s why we need to be conscious of that if we intend to see our relationship flourish. To be clear, we are not advocating that you should kick out all of your acquaintances and focus solely on your partner. In fact, it’s not only good to be inclusive and share our lives with others, it is also a responsibility. But what we are saying is that at one point, we all need to step back and remember what made us a couple at the first place! The plain reality is that we did not fall in love with our significant other’s group members. We loved the other person first and then came the crowd… If you truly care about your relationship, at one point it is very healthy to take time to step back together, just you two without the entourage. And with the summer in full bloom, it is a great opportunity to isolate “couples only time.” A time for love rejuvenation!

Can STDs Be Transmitted Through Swimming Pools? An Expert Weighs In

The Question: Is it possible to catch STDs from swimming in a pool or hot tub?

No, not unless you’re having sex in the pool with someone who has an STD.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an individual can only pass on an STD through direct person-to-person contact. Take syphilis, for example. The disease cannot be transmitted through casual contact with doorknobs, seats, eating utensils, or pools.

Dr. Edward Brooks, an infectious disease specialist  at Stanford Health Care, explains that there is no evidence that an individual can get an STD from casually swimming in a pool. Transmission of STDs through a hot tub or pool are only possible if two people are engaging in sexual activity while in the water. An intimate exchange of bodily fluids is necessary in order for those types of diseases to be passed along to someone else.

Although you may have dodged that STD bullet, it’s important to remember that there are other diseases one can get from being in a pool. 

“The most common are diarrheal illnesses, transmitted by ingesting the organism accidentally while swimming in the pool,” Brooks said.

These types of illnesses are mainly caused by fecal contamination, which is when someone who has diarrhea goes swimming and contaminates the water with an infectious microorganism. Once the microorganism is in the water, people who ingest enough of it while swimming could become sick.

In order to protect yourself from such diseases, Brooks explains that it’s important to make sure all pools or hot tubs you choose to swim in are well-maintained. If you are using public facilities, it would be smart to verify that the facility is meeting chlorine and PH balance standards. If you have a pool of your own, learn how to correctly maintain it or hire an outside service to ensure it is being done adequately. 

All public freshwater pools should be cleaned and disinfected with chlorine products, the substance used to kill bacteria, most viruses and algae. Without the use of these chemicals, we would almost always be swimming in a giant puddle of germs. Let’s just take a moment to let that sink in ― yuck!

The CDC has set of science-based guidelines that local and state public health authorities can use to create their own regulations to monitor the safety of public pools. 

Brooks also said that it is very important to practice good hygiene. Take a shower before and after you go swimming to prevent the transfer of diarrheal illnesses. Also be sure to clean your bathing suit with soap and water after use.

To sum it all up, the only STDs you can get while swimming are those passed through intimate sexual contact with someone who has an infection. Practicing good hygiene, like showering before and after swimming and properly cleaning your swimsuit, can help keep you safe from the most common waterborne illnesses that could be lurking beneath the surface.

Study Finds Drop In Prescription Drugs In Medical Marijuana States

States looking for a way to reduce Medicare spending and prescription drug use may want to turn to legalizing medical marijuana, a new study suggests.

The District of Columbia and the 17 states that had medical marijuana as an alternative to prescription drugs in 2013 saved an estimated total of $ 165.2 million in Medicare program and enrollee spending that year, researchers at the University of Georgia reported in the journal Health Affairs this month.

“The results suggest that if all states had implemented medical marijuana the overall savings to Medicare would have been around $ 468 million,” a press release on the findings stated.

The researchers looked at prescriptions filled by Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (or Part D) enrollees from 2010 to 2013. They then narrowed the prescriptions down to ones that could be substituted with medical marijuana. Those prescriptions were for ailments that included anxiety, depression, glaucoma, nausea, pain, psychosis, seizures, sleep disorders and spasticity.

Their results found that there were fewer prescriptions filled for the majority of those categories. The pain category, for instance, saw a decrease in 1,826 daily doses, while the depression category saw a 265 daily dosage decrease.

As the researchers noted in their release, they specifically looked at glaucoma patients’ use of marijuana.

“It turns out that glaucoma is one of the most Googled searches linked to marijuana, right after pain,” Dr. David Bradford of the university’s School of Public & International Affairs, who co-authored the report, stated in the university’s release.

The eye disease can be extremely painful and lead to blindness for some patients. Those sufferers who use marijuana, however, can experience a 25 percent decrease in eye pressure that’s caused by the condition, according to the release.

The relief provided by marijuana only lasts about 60 minutes, however, and expecting patients to take it once an hour is considered “unrealistic,” they concluded. Because of that, they stated that they fully expected prescription drug use to remain strong for the disease even when marijuana was an available alternative.

As the university’s release notes, “they were not disappointed.”

Though there were fewer drug prescriptions written for the other ailments, the daily doses of prescribed glaucoma medications increased, they stated.

That led them to believe that medical marijuana users are not requesting prescriptions just to enjoy a high, but are basing their decision on medical needs.

“The results suggest people are really using marijuana as medicine and not just using it for recreational purposes,” the study’s lead author, Ashley Bradford, who completed her bachelor’s degree in sociology in May, said in a statement.

Speaking in a recent YouTube interview, Bradford expressed hope “that this research will influence and reform policymaking.”

Decreasing Americans’ use of prescription drugs may not just be of monetary benefit, but depending on the type of drug, could help fight Americans’ addiction to prescription painkillers as well.

The U.S. is in the midst of an opioid overdose epidemic, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In 2014 alone, opioids ― including prescription opioid pain relievers and heroin ― killed more than 28,000 people, more than any year on record. At least half of all those deaths involved a prescription opioid. 

“We now know that overdoses from prescription opioid pain relievers are a driving factor in the 15-year increase in opioid overdose deaths,” the CDC states on their website. “Since 1999, the amount of prescription opioids sold in the U.S. nearly quadrupled, yet there has not been an overall change in the amount of pain that Americans report.”

Three of the most common prescription drugs involved in opioid overdose deaths were methadone, oxycodone and hydrocodone.

Today, 25 states and Washington, D.C., have some form of legalized medical marijuana.

It’s Time to Stand Up for Truth and Intelligence

In a time when the American news media focused on reporting facts, rather than entertaining the public, iconic broadcast journalist Walter Cronkite made a comment about American values and education that seems even more powerful today. Averred Cronkite, “”[w]hatever the cost of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation.”

Indeed, as “the most trusted man in America” well understood, nothing is more costly to a democratic society than ignorance. We are seeing this on a daily basis today in the U.S. Much of the violence Americans are seeing is a product of ignorance, as is much of the rhetoric accepted by supporters of the GOP.

Donald Trump’s apparent ignorance about topics ranging from economics to international affairs has been well documented, but far more troubling is the ignorance of his followers, who do not appear to have the critical thinking skills or perhaps simply the reliable information necessary to see ignorance, lies, and twisted truths when they encounter them.

The fear mongering that Trump has succeeded in using to gain supporters can be successful only in a society governed not by information and intelligence, but by fear and ignorance. Unfortunately, the GOP’s leadership champions ignorance and distortion of fact.

When candidates make ridiculous claims such as Ben Carson’s publicly expressed view that the Pyramids of Giza were not tombs, but grain silos built by the Biblical son of Jacob to get ready for the famine in Genesis or when Donald Trump comments about Ted Cruz’s father on the basis of a report from the National Enquirer, it’s a symptom of deeper problems. Such comments would not be taken seriously by a public that was well informed and would be immediately refuted by party leadership, unless of course that leadership is itself stunningly ignorant or cynically willing to turn a deaf ear on the dangers of ignorance and lies in order to gain power.

Nor would these types of comments gain any traction if the news media uniformly called them out on the grounds that they lack verity. As it stands, only parts of the news media see their job as upholding truth.

The Washington Post clearly is one media outlet that recognizes its responsibility in the American democratic system. It just published a full-page editorial on the dangers of a Trump presidency. The newspaper notes that Mr. Trump’s ignorance, arrogance, and aggressiveness combined with his “politics of denigration and division” present a clear threat to the American democratic system.

This is correct, but the threat is really much more pernicious. The true danger to American democracy lies in a significant portion of the voting public that lacks the ability or information necessary to recognize what a threat Mr. Trump actually represents. Rather than drawing support, his wanton disregard for facts and open ignorance of the Constitution as noted by the Post should send a shiver through anyone invested in democracy.

Americans are faced with a very serious choice this November. In the past, whether Republican or Democrat, it has seemed clear that presidential candidates have shared a commitment to protecting the Constitution and democratic values, even if their specific ideas about how best to protect those things vary. It is not at all clear that Mr. Trump shares that commitment.

It’s a sad reality that the U.S. has arrived at this point, but we are here and it is time for those who support truth, facts, and intelligence–whether they are conservatives or liberals–to work hard to protect American democracy. The November election is nothing less than a vote on the future of that democratic system.

If we fail, and elect Mr. Trump, we face a very real possibility of paying that hefty price Walter Cronkite warned us to avoid. Whether it is through libraries, schools, or the media, there is nothing more important than ensuring that our society is well informed and able to recognize genuine threats to democracy, particularly when they come in the guise of claims to make America great again.

As a journalist, Mr. Cronkite recognized his most important job was not to entertain but to educate the public. As members of the Fourth Estate, journalists today need to, perhaps more than ever, recognized that their job is to protect democracy by informing the public. The Washington Post took this responsibility very seriously; one would hope that other news outlets follow their lead.

11 Ways To Instantly Connect With Anyone

2016-07-21-1469128595-7816956-HowToInstantlyConnectWithAnyoneHP.jpg

Too many people succumb to the mistaken belief that the ability to connect with others is a natural, unteachable trait that belongs to only a lucky few. It’s easy to fall prey to this misconception. In reality, this ability is under your control, and it’s a matter of emotional intelligence (EQ).

Research conducted by Matthew Lieberman at UCLA shows that being social and connecting with others is as fundamental a human need as food, shelter, and water. For example, Lieberman discovered that we feel social pain, such as the loss of a relationship, in the same part of the brain that we feel physical pain.

The primary function of this brain area is to alert us to threats to our survival. It makes you realize how powerful and important social connection is. We’re hard wired to be social creatures.

“The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be understood.” -Ralph Nichols

MRIs of the brain show that social thinking and analytical thinking involve entirely different neural networks and that they operate something like a seesaw. When you engage in analytical thinking, the social part of your brain quiets down, but as soon as you’re finished, the social network springs back to life.

The social brain is the end of the seesaw where the fat kid sits; it’s our brain’s default setting.

Given that social connection is such a fundamental human need, you’d think that it would be easy to connect with everyone we meet. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Against our own self-interest, we get bogged down by shyness, self-consciousness, cynicism, pride, competitiveness, jealousy, and arrogance.

If you can get that baggage out of the way, you can connect with anyone–even those who are still holding on to their own. Here are some tips that will help you to connect instantly with everyone you meet.

1. Leave a strong first impression. Most people decide whether or not they like you within the first seven seconds of meeting you. They then spend the rest of the conversation internally justifying their initial reaction. This may sound terrifying, but by knowing this, you can take advantage of it to connect with anyone.

First impressions are tied intimately to positive body language. Becoming cognizant of your gestures, expressions, and tone of voice (and making certain they’re positive) will draw people to you like ants to a picnic. Using an enthusiastic tone, uncrossing your arms, maintaining eye contact, and leaning towards the person who’s speaking are all forms of positive body language that high-EQ people use to draw others in. Positive body language can make all the difference in a conversation. It’s true that how you say something can be more important than what you say.

2. Be the first to venture beyond the superficial. Our first conversation or two with a new acquaintance tends to be pretty superficial. We portray a careful picture of ourselves, and we stick to nice, safe topics. We talk about the weather and people we know in common and share the most basic details about ourselves. But if you really want to connect with somebody, try upping the ante and revealing the real you. You don’t need to get too personal, but it’s important to let the other person know what you’re passionate about. Most of the time, if you open up, the other person will follow your lead and do the same.

3. Ask good questions. If the other person seems hesitant to open up, encourage them to do so by asking substantial questions. “What do you do?” doesn’t further the relationship nearly as much as, “Why did you choose your profession?” Search for questions that will help you to understand what makes the other person tick, without getting too personal.

4. Learn from them. In the course of his research, Lieberman concluded that our educational system would be much more effective if we tapped into the social side of learning, rather than trying to squash it. For example, the best way to help an eighth-grader struggling with math would be to have him get help from another student. Apply that same principle to your life, and be willing to learn from the person you’re trying to connect with. Not only does that make them feel more bonded to you, it makes them feel important. It also shows that you’re willing to be vulnerable and aren’t too proud to admit that you have much to learn.

5. Don’t make them regret removing the mask. If your new acquaintance does you the honor of opening up, don’t make them regret it. Sarcasm, criticism, or jokes that might make the other person feel judged for what they’ve shared are major faux paus. Instead, empathize with their approach to life, which you can do even if you don’t agree with their beliefs, and then reciprocate by revealing more about yourself.

6. Look for the good in them. Our culture can often predispose us toward cynicism. We seem to focus on finding reasons not to like people instead of reasons to like them. Shut that cynical voice off, and concentrate on looking for the good in a new acquaintance. For one thing, that keeps you from writing someone off too soon, but more importantly, when you expect the best from people, they’re likely to deliver it.

7. Smile. People naturally (and unconsciously) mirror the body language of the person they’re talking to. If you want people to like you, smile at them during a conversation and they will unconsciously return the favor and feel good about you as a result.

8. Use their name. Your name is an essential part of your identity, and it feels terrific when people use it. You shouldn’t use someone’s name only when you greet them. Research shows that people feel validated when the person they’re speaking with refers to them by name during a conversation. When you meet someone, don’t be afraid to ask their name a second time if you forget it right after you hear it. You’ll need to keep their name handy if you’re going to remember it the next time you see them.

9. Follow the platinum rule. We all know the golden rule, and it’s pretty easy to follow. The platinum rule is harder to follow because it requires us to treat people the way they want to be treated. Not only does doing so make the other person more comfortable–and therefore more likely to open up–but it also proves that you’ve been listening and have really heard what they’ve been telling you. And that shows extra effort on your part.

10. Don’t make it a contest. We’ve all seen the stereotypical sit-com scene where two guys in a bar spend the night trying to one-up each other. The same thing happens when you meet someone new. Their accomplishments and life experience sneak up on you and make you feel the urge to make yourself look just as good (if not better). Doing so may stroke your ego, but it doesn’t help you to connect with them. It keeps you focused on yourself when you should be trying to learn about them and find common ground.

11. Turn off your inner voice. One giant thing that keeps us from connecting with other people is that we don’t really listen. Instead, we’re thinking while the other person is talking. We’re so focused on what we’re going to say next or how what the other person is saying is going to affect us down the road that we fail to hear what’s really being said. The words come through loud and clear, but the meaning is lost.

You must turn off this inner voice if you want to connect deeply with people. So what if you forget what you were going to say or if the conversation moves in a different direction before you have a chance to make your point. If your real goal is to connect with a person, you have to shut off your own soundtrack long enough to focus on what they’re telling you.

Bringing It All Together

The good news is that we’re programmed to connect with each other; we just keep getting in our own way. Try these tips the next time you meet someone new, and watch a superficial conversation turn into a real connection.

How do you connect with people? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

The One Habit For Better Sleep You Might Have Overlooked

2016-07-23-1469284338-2705449-Stocksy_GuilleFaingold.jpg

You know that sleep is essential for good health, and you’ve tried everything: munching on sleep-enhancing superfoods, banning screens from the bedroom, and getting sleep tips from Arianna Huffington (she’s serious about it).

But it turns out there’s a super easy, science-backed method for improving your snoozing, and it’s probably one you haven’t considered: sleeping naked. (Sounds great in this humidity, anyway!)

According to a report on The Cut, sleeping in the nude can help you clock those prescribed seven to eight hours and improve the quality of your zzz’s. So prepare to say adios to your trusty pajama set–it’s just not necessary.

RELATED: Could Hormones Be The Reason Why You’re Feeling Bloated?

Read on for three benefits of going to bed in the buff.

1. It’s cooler
According to a study by the University of Amsterdam, you get better–AKA deeper–sleep when you have a lower body temperature. So when your skin is cool from not wearing anything (ever felt the heavenly sensation of cold sheets?) it’ll be easier for your body to drift into a quality sleep. Added bonus: It’s cheaper than blasting your air conditioner.

2. It may boost your metabolism
A study done in 2014 showed that cool temperatures alter your body fat and metabolism. Lowering your body temperature by sleeping naked will do that, by burning calories as your body attempts to keep warm. It’s kind of like the best workout ever.

3. It helps with intimacy
Sleeping nude not only benefits your body–it can help with your relationship as well. Having intimacy issues? Hit the sack without any clothes on, which can trigger a release of oxytocin, AKA “the love hormone.”

And if nudity is not your thing, just make sure your PJs are made out of breathable material (bye, synthetics). The cooler you feel, the deeper you’ll sleep.

Alcohol Is Even Deadlier Than You Think, Study Suggests

A new study suggests that alcohol is a direct cause of cancer in several areas of the body.

The study, published Thursday in the scientific journal Addiction, consists of a major review of 10 years’ worth of studies from several organizations, including the World Cancer Research Fund, the American Institute for Cancer Research and the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

And its conclusions are dire. 

Nearly 6 percent of cancer deaths worldwide can be linked to alcohol, including in people who drink light to moderate amounts of alcohol, the study concludes. “From a public health perspective, alcohol is estimated to have caused approximately half a million deaths from cancer in 2012,” wrote study author Jennie Connor, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Otago in New Zealand.

The study determined that there is a strong link between alcohol consumption and cancer in specific areas of the body, such as the liver, colon, esophagus and female breast. There are also causal contributions in other areas such as the prostate, pancreas and skin. 

How alcohol causes cancer is not deeply understood, according to the study, but it is thought to depend on the “target organ.” For example, cancers of the throat, mouth and liver can be largely attributed to a carcinogenic compound called acetaldehyde. Salivary acetaldehyde levels have been found to reach high levels when drinking.

Breast tissue is another area that seems to be particularly susceptible to alcohol.

Connor noted the United Kingdom’s Million Women Cohort study, which found that women who drank 70 to 140 grams of alcohol per week experienced a 13 percent increase in breast cancer and a 5 percent increase in total cancer compared to those who drank less than 20 grams per week.

Unfortunately, the amount you drink might not matter all that much. While heavy drinkers have a higher risk of liver, colon and laryngeal cancer than light drinkers, all drinkers have the same risk of mouth, esophagus, breast and pharynx cancer.

Connor also acknowledges that some of the studies she reviewed show that those who drink light to moderate of alcohol have a reduced risk of developing cardiovascular disease than abstainers.

But many epidemiologists agree that research confirms alcohol actually causes cancer, Connor wrote, while the relationship between drinking and heart disease is not as conclusive.

For example, other lifestyle factors beyond alcohol consumption ― such as a person’s healthy behavior and demographic conditions ― typically put abstainers at a higher risk than those who moderately drink. Connor cites a 2005 study that showed 27 out of 30 risk factors for cardiovascular disease were more prevalent in abstainers than moderate drinkers. 

“Promotion of health benefits from drinking at moderate levels is seen increasingly as disingenuous or irrelevant in comparison to the increase in risk of a range of cancers,” she wrote in the study.  

As a solution to alcohol-attributed cancer, Connor suggests everyone should reduce their alcohol consumption, not just heavy drinkers. 

“Population-wide reduction in alcohol consumption will have an important effect on the incidence of [cancer], while targeting the heaviest drinkers alone has limited potential,” she wrote in the study. 

However, most people today are hesitant to adapt to the facts. While the majority of the population readily accepts that smoking causes lung cancer, “alcohol’s causal role is perceived to be more complex than tobacco’s,” Connor wrote.

For this reason, simply getting people to stop drinking to prevent cancer ― as many have done in the case of smoking ― is broadly considered unacceptable.

Connor also warns of the backlash that research such as her own may receive from alcohol companies.

“There will be orchestrated attempts to discredit the science and the researchers, and to confuse the public,” she wrote. “The stakes are high for alcohol industries when there is no argument, on current evidence, for a safe level of drinking with respect to cancer.”

Ultimately, alcohol is just one of many factors that can cause cancer, but Connor’s study suggests reducing consumption or even partaking in a “dry period” as steps in the right direction to reduce your risk.

    A Sorrowful Farewell To Baton Rouge Officer Matthew Gerald

    BATON ROUGE, La. ― Matthew Gerald, a 41-year-old rookie police officer who was one of three lawmen shot to death last week by a gunman who targeted police, was remembered Friday at an emotional service attended by thousands of mourners and police officers from around the nation.

    “For Matthew Gerald, being a cop wasn’t just what he did, it was who he was,” said Baton Rouge Police Chief Carl Dabadie Jr., whose voice broke several times as he eulogized the slain officer. “He served with honor [and] our hearts are broken.”

    Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office Chaplain Ken Spivey spoke about Gerald’s commitment to the military, the police department and his family.

    “Following his graduation from Central High School, Matt initially pursued a career in the military,” Spivey said. “He achieved the rank of U.S. Army specialist, earning four air medals. In addition, he was a Black Hawk crew chief, a corporal in the United States Marines and also completed three tours of duties in Iraq. Matt relentlessly showed others good through his own actions … The love of his life, however, was his family. Matt was an amazing husband, son, father and a friend.”

    Gerard’s funeral was held five days after a gunman opened fire in Baton Rouge, killing Gerard, Baton Rouge Officer Montrell Jackson, 32, and Brad Garafola, 45, of the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office. Three other officers were wounded.

    The gunman, identified by police as Gavin Long, a former Marine from Missouri who authorities say targeted the officers, was fatally shot by a SWAT team.

    “There is no doubt whatsoever that these officers were intentionally targeted and assassinated,” Col. Michael Edmonson, superintendent of the Louisiana State Police, said Monday. “It was a calculated act.”

    Garafola will be buried on Saturday. Jackson’s funeral is set for Monday.

    In the days before the Louisiana shootings, demonstrators had been demanding justice for victims of police brutality, particularly Alton Sterling, who was killed here on July 5.

    Two days later, a sniper killed five law enforcement officers at a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas, citing revenge for recent police shootings as a motive.

    The day after police killed Sterling, a 37-year-old father of five, an officer shot and killed Philando Castile, 32, during a traffic stop in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. The shootings of both black men were caught on videos that were widely shared, and sparked renewed calls for reforming police use of force and the criminal justice system.

    During Gerard’s funeral, Chief Dabadie expressed frustration at media reports critical of his agency’s handling of protestors.

    “The media has blasted us for what we do and how we do it,” Dabadie said. “Basically, portraying law enforcement as these bunch of bullies who go around and beat people up … We’re not bullies. We’re protecting our communities and they’re throwing us under the bus for it and that’s wrong.”

    Also speaking at Friday’s service was Kip Holden, mayor-president of East Baton Rouge Parish, who asked everyone to set aside their differences and join together.

    “A community in mourning should evaluate itself and say, ‘What else can I do to make my community better,’” Holden said. “The men and women who dawn that uniform are here for all of us.”

    Gerald’s wife, Dechia, who attended the funeral with daughters Dawclyn and Fynleigh, did not speak at the funeral. However, she did write a letter, which was distributed to mourners. In it, she said her husband was driven to become a police officer, something she supported and felt made their marriage stronger.

    “Ultimately, the only thing stronger than his love for the red, white and blue was his love for us,” she wrote.

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.

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.

    Dial Up The Frequency Of Love — It’s All Good

    2016-07-22-1469207541-594798-11780058_10153129790107149_3221575478209974355_o.jpg

    “The world has gone crazy!”

    “People have lost their minds!”

    “It’s not a safe place!”

    “The world is going to hell in a hand basket!”

    SO.MUCH.FEAR.

    How about instead of getting sucked up into that vortex, we dial up the frequency of Love?

    Yes, there is a lot of upheaval, chaos, if you will. And instead of trying to control it and being afraid of it, we can look at it for what it is:

    The perfect unfolding in which many blessings lie. The new paradigm emerging as the old ones crumble.

    It’s all good.

    Fear, scarcity and lack are not sustainable anymore. That’s why it’s showing up more than ever. It’s fighting for it’s last breath. It’s always been there – all the horrors that are happening around the world – we just know where it lives now.

    It’s in our face.

    Why?

    Because we are waking up!

    I learned that in space when light expands and hits darkness, there is initial friction when they meet before light expands some more.

    So, shine on and embrace the friction, knowing that on a grander scale, everything is playing out as it should for one simple reason…

    To restore balance and harmony.

    Does that rub you the wrong way?

    Ah, there’s the friction.

    Do you want to defend the limitations of being right? After all, there’s so many stories to support why the world has gone mad. Just turn on the news, read the paper, or log in to the social networks.

    Instead, dare to Love even when it seems impossible or even when it feels wrong – after all, shouldn’t we be raging when yet another act of violence has been reported across the globe? Doesn’t that show we care? So, how can we love when atrocities are happening around the world?

    How can we not?

    I do know from experience that Love is the most powerful frequency on the planet and it’s always there because it’s all there is. We are conduits for that frequency. We can at any moment choose to allow Love to flow through us.

    Talk about true power.

    Ask yourself how it feels and what it looks like to dial up the frequency of Love when, in that moment, you want to react and post away on social media the expression of your rage.

    Pause and pay attention to what comes up for you.

    I definitely have my reactions to what’s happening in the world and I have my feelings about it. When I’m triggered, I step away and deal with my emotions first. I allow them to show me what it is I’m really upset about.

    I check in with myself before I post anything. Am I coming from a place of Love? If not, I do not post.

    These are extraordinary times to be living on the planet. Extraordinary times to be choosing Love.

    So no matter what’s happening around you, I dare you to dial up the frequency of Love.

    And then pay attention to what happens.

    Because, as a friend of mine always says, “It’s all good.”

    And it is.

    Florida Tests About 200 In The Search For Local Zika Virus Infections

    By Julie Steenhuysen

    CHICAGO (Reuters) – Health authorities in Florida have tested about 200 people for the Zika virus as part of the state’s investigation of two possible cases of infections not related to travel to a region hit by an outbreak, officials said on Friday.

    Florida’s health department this week began looking into what may be the first cases in the United States of Zika, a mosquito-borne virus that has spread rapidly through Latin America and the Caribbean, caused by the bite of a local mosquito.

    All prior cases of Zika in the United States have been linked with travel to a country where the virus is circulating or to sex with someone who has done such travel.

    Health experts in the United States have been watching closely for the arrival of Zika, which has been shown to cause a birth defect called microcephaly marked by small heads and undersized brains that can cause severe developmental problems.

    Florida health officials have urged people in the areas being investigated to provide blood and urine samples if requested.

    ”The department’s investigations into the possible non-travel related Zika virus cases in Miami-Dade and Broward counties are ongoing and the department will share more details as they become available,” the department said in a statement. “To date, approximately 200 people have been interviewed and tested as part of the department’s investigations and we await additional lab results.”

    On Tuesday, Florida said it was investigating a possible Zika case in a Miami-Dade County woman. The case is suspected to be non-travel related, but as of Thursday the state had not ruled out travel or sex as a potential cause of her infection, according to a spokeswoman.

    Late on Thursday, Florida also announced a potential Zika case in Broward County that was not related to travel.

    Florida has invited the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to assist in the probe, and CDC senior medical epidemiologist Dr. Marc Fischer arrived on Friday.

    To determine whether a case was caused by local transmission, health workers need to survey households and neighbors within a 150-yard (137 meters) radius of an infected person’s residence, Fischer said at a CDC workshop on Thursday.

    He said that was basically the flying radius of the mosquitoes that spread Zika.

    More than 400 pregnant women in the continental United States have evidence of Zika virus infection, and 12 infants have been born with birth defects linked to Zika infections in their mothers, officials have said.

    The Unexpected Effect ‘Pokémon Go’ Had On A Boy With Autism

    One boy with autism is catching ‘em all ― and discovering a new side of himself in the process. 

    For Ralphie Koppelman, a 6-year-old who was diagnosed with autism, socializing can be uncomfortable. He has difficulty making eye contact and engaging in conversation. But the day he started playing Pokémon Go, the boy began opening up to other kids, making new connections, and finding common ground with his peers as a result of the game. 

    His mother, Lenore Koppelman, who was overjoyed by the unexpected consequence from playing the game, shared her son’s experience on Facebook.

    “MY AUTISTIC CHILD IS SOCIALIZING,” she wrote in the emotional post. “[He’s] looking up at them. Sometimes even in the eye. Laughing with them. Sharing something in common.”

    The mom explained to the Huffington Post in an e-mail that her son has trouble with pragmatic speech. He also struggles with communicating his thoughts. 

    “If a kid walks up to him and says ‘Hey! Want to play a game with me?’ he might squeal and flap his hands and shriek, and then want to run around in circles around them, laughing with excitement,” Koppelman told HuffPost. 

    Additionally, Koppelman said Ralphie has autism-related OCD and because of that, he has difficulty breaking routines. 

    The day he started playing Pokemon Go, however, Koppelman immediately noticed some differences in her son. After catching some Pokéman at a bakery, the boy ran outside where another boy saw what he was doing and a connection was made. The two even high-fived over the game. 

    Later on that night, Ralphie even chatted with his neighbor Jenny Lando about the game. When she informed him that there were more Pokemon for the taking at the playground, he begged his mother to go visit ― unusual for the boy since his routine doesn’t include going to the playground at night. While there, he further surprised his parents by hunting Pokemon with other kids and interacting with adults, who offered him some advice on the game. 

    When she noticed the changes, the mom and her husband, Steve, had a myriad of thoughts going through their heads. 

    “We were looking at each other with shocked and delighted expressions, sharing the same thought: something is suddenly happening, and whatever it is, it is magic,” she said.

    It’s been a bit over a week and the proud mom says her son has continued to be more social and more comfortable 

    “He seems far more relaxed about breaking his usual routines. He seems happier. He’s laughing more. He seems more confident. He struts around proudly when he catches a Pokemon, and brags about it to people in the cutest way,” she said. “His father and I are both proud of him and how far he has come in only a week’s time!”

    WATCH: Refocus (Getting Back on Track)

    There are a lot of things going on that are demanding our focus – and take us away from where we can be most powerful and do the most good for ourselves and others. I hope this will help.

    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.

    The Woman Who Lost Her Sense of ‘Mine’

    2016-07-22-1469227380-1155435-18livingroom.w710.h473.2x.jpg

    By Melissa Dahl

    People get attached to their stuff. Two-year-olds, for instance, have very strong opinions about what’s theirs (“MINE!”), and are suspicious about sharing, no matter what nonsense their adult caregivers spew about this caring thing. And although (most) people eventually learn to follow appropriate social norms, that relationship to stuff and things still matters throughout the life span, and even, in a way, beyond it — when you’re gone, after all, your loved ones will likely inherit your most prized possessions. If nothing else, at least your memory will live on through, say, a particularly nice set of dresser drawers you once owned.

    Related: The Man Who Lost His Memory at the Dentist

    People express their self-identity through their belongings, a notion that psychologists and neuroscientists are lately finding empirical evidence to support, though the idea itself is of course not a new one. In 1890, William James, the 19th-century scholar who is considered by many to be the founder of modern psychology, wrote in The Principles of Modern Psychology, “a man’s Self is the sum total of all that he can call his, not only his body and his psychic powers, but his clothes and his house, his wife and his children, his ancestors and friends, his reputation and works, his lands and horses, and yacht and bank-account.” (Former President Jimmy Carter was a little late to this conclusion, observing in a 1970s speech, “Human identity is no longer defined by what one does but by what one owns.”)

    But this idea — that you imbue your possessions with pieces of yourself, like a benign Voldemort — becomes especially intriguing when you consider a case study published online last week in the journal Cortex (and first spotted by science writer Rolf Degen), about a woman who, at least temporarily, lost her sense of ownership over her belongings. What can a mind that’s lost its sense of that feeling of mine-ness as it relates to stuff and things tell us about our own relationships to our stuff and things?

    Here’s an overview of the case study:

    The patient: She’s not named in the report, but her neurologists — all from Lisbon, Portugal — do provide some biographical details of the woman at the center of the case study. At the time of the incident, she was 65 years old and widowed, a retired translator who had lived in the same house for more than three decades. She lived alone — well, alone save for the eight cats with which she shared her home. She had recently suffered a stroke, which caused her trouble with speaking and partial facial paralysis. After treatment, however, she was once again able to speak clearly.

    The problem: The trouble started after she came home from the hospital after being treated for her stroke. Suddenly, and for seemingly no reason, nothing in her home quite felt like hers. “When I looked at my belongings, I felt they were not mine,” she told her doctors. “As I opened my door, I looked at the painting on the wall, had a perfect recollection of it and knew it was mine. However, I did not feel a sense of belonging as before. Then, I realized I had the same feeling with the sofa, the living room’s furniture, the frames with family portraits, the flowers of the balcony … everything!”

    Intriguingly, she told her doctors that she never felt that same sense of detachment toward her own body, or toward the places and the people she knew and loved — and yet the eerie feeling did extend to her cats. She recognized them, and remembered each kitty’s name, but none of the animals quite felt like they belonged to her. “I felt as if I was not emotionally attached to my things anymore,” she said.

    The diagnosis: These symptoms don’t really have a name, or a specific diagnosis, at least not yet. But brain scans showed damage to a few particular areas: the left insula, the left anterior cingulate region, and the left supramarginal gyrus. This wouldn’t mean much to anyone if it weren’t for a 2011 neuroimaging study, which found that these areas appear to be associated with a person’s sense of ownership; the researchers, from the University of Aberdeen, found changes in brain activity in this network when their study participants were looking at images of their own things, but not at others’ things. As the authors of that paper note, these brain regions have also been linked with “self-referential encoding and memory” — the formation of a self-concept, in other words.

    Some developmental psychologists have theorized that when a 2-year-old insists that anything he’s touched (and many things he hasn’t) is “MINE!,” it’s a first stab at asserting independence, through the beginnings of the formation of self-identity. As psychology writer Christian Jarrett has noted, nearly 25 percent of all day-care squabbles recorded by a team of psychologists in 2008 were about just what belonged to whom — the “child either defended his or her objects from another child, or wanted to take an object from another child.” Children at this age are using their things to build their own understanding of who they are, in other words, and this is something that doesn’t exactly diminish as we grow older. Younger drivers, those between ages 18 and 25, are more likely to personalize their cars in some way, “as if marking out their territory,” Jarrett further observes, and when your self-identity is threatened, research has suggested you may be more likely to try to make yourself feel a bit better by buying fancy stuff. “It’s as if reflecting on our things restores a fragile ego,” he concludes.

    This woman’s story helps shed a little more light on the tangled-up relationship humans have with their things, a subject which has led many to conclude, somewhat cynically, that “we are what we own.” Fortunately for her, the strange feeling regarding her stuff only lasted three days; one morning she woke up, and everything she owned felt like hers again, as if she were awakening from some fairy-tale curse meant to teach her a lesson about materialism.

    The Psychological Reason Conservatives Band Together Faster Than Liberals

    When Donald Trump picked the Mulan-hating, Titanic-loving gubernatorial goober Mike Pence to be his vice-presidential pick, he said that it was about “party unity.” And indeed, as the flopping of the Never Trump movement at the Republican National Convention shows, the GOP has indeed rallied around Trump — why else would Ted Cruz get booed offstage for withholding his endorsement?

    It’s a fascinating display of what political psychologists have come to call “shared reality theory.” Similar to how some people need certainty more than others, researchers have found that people are more or less motivated to get their beliefs reconfirmed by the people around them. Sharing reality functions as “a sort of social glue,” University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign psychologist Chadly Stern and Stanford University researcher Robb Willer write in a new column for the Washington Post, “without which we would be unable to communicate, work in teams and achieve shared goals.” When you have a strong sense of shared reality, it helps you to come to think that your “beliefs reflect objective reality” and that they’re shared by your friends and family.

    As you may surmise by the way fans of right-wing commentator Rush Limbaugh refer to themselves as “dittoheads,” studies indicate that conservative people have a higher need for “shared reality.” Liberals, on the other hand, tend toward the opposite — rather than wanting to share the same reality with their kin, they’re more motivated to be unique, agreeing with statements like “in group activities, I’m somewhat of a nonconformist,” while conservatives are more likely to agree that it’s important to them to “see the world in a similar way” as others do. And in matters both political (abortion) and nonpolitical (coffee) conservatives are more likely to overestimate how much their beliefs match those of their fellow conservatives, while liberals underestimate how much their beliefs are like other liberals. And guess what: According to Stern’s research, people who report that they think their peers share their beliefs with them are more likely to vote.

    Therein lies the difficulty of organizing liberals, which Stern and Willer compare to the “proverbial herding of cats” in their Post column. The liberal impulse to nonconformity may be what drives social progress — but it also makes it harder for the party to unify, the Democratic Party, to be precise. It’s a fascinating irony: Liberals might be theoretically more collectivist, pushing for policy that benefits the public good, but their individualism makes it harder to build a coalition. Just ask your nearest Bernie bro.

    George Harrison’s Estate Burns GOP Over Unauthorized Usage Of ‘Here Comes The Sun’

    When the house band at the Republican National Convention played “Here Comes The Sun” as Ivanka Trump walked on stage, the estate of late Beatle George Harrison was not happy about it:

    The estate also sent a followup message saying there was a Harrison song they might approve of the GOP using: 

    As the song title alone suggests, “Beware Of Darkness” has a very different message, and includes this verse: 

    Watch out now, take care,
    Beware of greedy leaders
    They’ll take you where you should not go,
    While Weeping Atlas Cedars
    They just want to grow
    Beware of darkness

    “Beware Of Darkness” was on Harrison’s landmark 1970 triple album, “All Things Must Pass.”

    The clip above shows the song performed at the 1971 “Concert for Bangladesh,” with Harrison and Leon Russell on vocals.

    Nurturing Change

    Do you think it’s possible to never change? When a couple tells each other they will always remain the same person for the other, do you think that is realistic? I don’t think so. The one thing that is constant in our lives is change.

    Human beings are continuously learning, growing and expanding their perspective. And if someone is not doing that, they are not actually living. The human being has infinite potential and if we do not develop towards progress and advancement, then we are dishonoring are capabilities.

    There are two ways a person can grow. One way is internally. The other way is externally. External growth will lead to improved status, higher promotions, more material possessions and better appearance. Internal growth will lead to more compassion, living with purpose and fine-tuned intuition.

    Focusing on both the internal and external worlds are necessary for living a fulfilled life. However, contrary to what some may think, true growth is an inside job. The more of a connection we have with our internal world, the more our external world will shine.

    How does one make a connection to this profound world that is felt but cannot be seen?

    • Through the power of meditation: When we sit in stillness, each second of no-thought we experience becomes a portal into the internal world. It is through stillness and clarity that we tap further into our compassion, purpose and intuition; hence, into our truth.

    • Through positive self-reflection: At the end of each day, week, month and year write out everything that happened to in which you’re grateful for. This positive mode of being is also a portal into higher vibrations. Our compassion, purpose and intuition are felt through high vibrations, not low.

    • Make a point to be of service more, either to those in your life or through volunteer experiences, or both. When we remove our needs and focus on the needs of others, we relinquish our ego. This lack of ego is also a portal to our internal world. Ego does not reside where our truth resides.

    Ego is how people act when they are trying to impress others. Truth is not concerned with impressing others. Yet the interesting thing is, the more we live from our truth, the more we’ll attract people and circumstances to help us shine further. It is a natural mode of existence that light is more attractive than darkness. And living with truth and authenticity is living in the light.

    Both the internal and external worlds are important. However, the work we do on the internal world will resonate deeper not just on ourselves and but also everyone we come into contact with. It is important to continuously grow and change. And it is stumping when a person expects another to always stay the same.

    Growth should be honored and supported. We live in the era of information and technology. The world around us is moving at a rapid rate. We need to keep up with this growth. And with that said, it is very important to develop a deep connection to the person we truly are on the inside so we do not feel lost on the outside. Our anchor in this fast paced world is the truth within our heart.

    The heart resides in the internal world. This is not in reference to the body. This is in reference to the being. Cultivate your being and you have cultivated the quality of your life. So go ahead and change! Just make sure you’re conscientious and expanding your compassion, purpose and intuition (living from your heart-truth).

    These high vibrations will resonate onto others, prompting them to change for the better too. The deepest form of change comes through feelings and experience.

    Florida Investigating 2 Possible Local Zika Virus Infections

    Health officials said Thursday they were investigating two possible cases of locally acquired Zika virus in South Florida, although sexual transmission related to travel hadn’t been ruled out.

    A patient in Miami-Dade County is an adult woman, according to a spokesman for the Florida Health Department. There were no details about the identity of a patient in nearby Broward County.

    If either case is confirmed, it would be the first local Zika transmission by mosquitoes in the U.S. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the state Department of Health were jointly investigating to determine whether mosquitos in the areas are carrying the virus.

    “Mosquitos have been trapped in the area of investigation and are being tested,” Mara Gambineri, a health department spokeswoman, told The Associated Press.

    Officials urged residents in the affected areas to cooperate with requests for blood and urine samples so that the health department can determine if there are more people who have been infected. Zika virus symptoms include red eyes, rash, joint pain and fever, but people who are infected may also be asymptomatic.

    Miami-Dade County leads the state in confirmed Zika cases, with 92, but all of those cases are travel-related.

    The CDC predicted in January that there may be a few small, local outbreaks in the U.S. ― specifically in the southern tips of Florida and Texas. Both areas in the past had outbreaks of mosquito-borne diseases, like dengue and chikungunya, which are transmitted by the same Aedes aegypti mosquito that carries Zika virus, and receive thousands of people traveling from places where Zika is spreading. 

    The CDC said Thursday that beginning Aug. 1, it would award a total of $ 60 million to states, cities and territories to fund efforts to prevent Zika virus from spreading. These Zika prevention tools include mosquito control and monitoring, more laboratory capacity for testing, and beefing up disease surveillance and investigation. In a statement announcing the funding, CDC Director Tom Frieden said he hoped Congress will vote to provide additional funds. 

    But as Vox pointed out last week, Congress just entered its summer holiday break without voting on $ 1.1 billion in funding for more Zika prevention measures. Experts predicted the consequences of that congressional inaction will include more babies born with microcephaly in the U.S. 

    Currently, 1,404 people have tested positive for Zika virus in the U.S. Of these, 400 are pregnant women. To date, all Zika virus cases in the U.S. are associated with travel to an affected area. Fifteen cases were sexually transmitted, and five people went on to develop Guillain-Barre syndrome, a neurological condition associated with with the virus.

    Twelve babies have been born in the U.S. with birth defects caused by Zika virus, including microcephaly, calcium deposits in the brain, excess fluid in the brain cavity or abnormal eye development. Officials have counted six pregnancy losses with evidence of the Zika virus-caused birth defects

    Zika virus is endemic in 50 countries and territories around the world.

    Researchers Find Evidence Of Zika Virus In A New Kind Of Mosquito

    RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) – Brazilian researchers on Thursday said they found signs of the Zika virus in a common mosquito that is a separate species from the insect known to be the primary means of transmission.

    They warned, however, that further tests are needed to determine whether the species, known as Culex quinquefasciatus, is in fact responsible for transmitting the virus to humans and, if so, to what extent.

    The scientists, from a leading Brazilian research institute known as the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, discovered the Zika traces in Culex mosquitoes captured in and around the northeastern Brazilian city of Recife, capital of the state that was hit hardest by the Zika outbreak since last year.

    In March, the same researchers said they had successfully transmitted the Zika virus to Culex mosquitoes in the lab, but were not yet sure at the time whether the species could carry the virus naturally.

    The Zika traces, the scientists said in a statement, were found using methods that identify ribonucleic acid from the virus. The findings, they said, “confirm the species as a potential vector of the virus.”

    Still, many questions remain to determine whether Culex, even if capable of carrying Zika, would be a significant source of infection in humans.

    Culex mosquitoes are more common than Aedes aegypti, the species primarily responsible for transmitting the Zika virus, and are able to withstand more temperate climates. They are common across the Americas and in tropical and subtropical climates elsewhere.

    Aedes aegypti has different breeding, feeding and overall habits that scientists say make it an efficient vector for the disease in humans.

    Compared with that mosquito, which is fond of urban and household environments and likes to feed on humans, Culex likes to live around trees and other high areas and is as likely to feed on birds and other animals as it is on humans.

    “Just finding the virus in another species doesn’t mean that it can efficiently transmit it,” says Jerome Goddard, an entomologist and specialist in mosquito-borne illnesses at Mississippi State University.

    Because mosquitoes of various species are capable of carrying any number of infections or parasites, scientists say that eradication efforts for any illness must concentrate on the insects known to best transmit each particular disease.

    Trump: “I Alone Can Fix It”

    “I am your voice,” Republican nominee Donald J. Trump told convention delegates in Cleveland as he accepted his party’s nomination in a speech filled with anger but lacking soaring rhetoric. His delivery was not presidential, rather it was harsh and indignant. It resonated with resentful Trump supporters who feel they are the victims of an America that has left them behind.

    Trump railed against a rigged system. “No one knows the system better than me,” he said pausing to smile, “which is why I alone can fix it.” Declaring that he is the “law and order candidate,” he said, “Our convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation. The attacks on our police, and terrorism is our cities, threaten our way of life.” He promised, “the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon, very soon, come to an end. Beginning on January 20 (Inauguration Day) safety will be restored.”

    Trump said, “The number of police officers killed in the line of duty has risen by almost 50% compared to this point last year.” He then played on fear, “Nearly 180,000 illegal immigrants with criminal records, ordered deported from our country, are roaming free to threaten peaceful citizens.” He promised to build a wall along the Mexican border, but didn’t mention that Mexico would pay for it. By the way, under President Barack Obama immigration is down, killings of police officers is down, and illegal immigration is down compared to previous presidents.

    In his one-hour and fourteen minute speech he listed a series of domestic initiatives. He promised to renegotiate trade deals, reduce taxes, invest in infrastructure, reduce government regulations, lift restrictions on American energy, and “repeal and replace disastrous Obamacare!” He said he would address the student debt problem and appoint justices “who will uphold our laws and constitution.”

    Trump failed to recognize members of the American military, including those serving overseas. But he said he would “rebuild our depleted military.” “Americanism, not globalism, will be our credo. As long as we are led by politicians will not put America first, then we can be assured that other nations will not treat America with respect.” He spoke of NATO, and said, “Countries we are protecting at a massive cost to us will be asked to pay their fair share.”

    Trump attacked Hillary Clinton’s record as Secretary of State. “Iran is on the path to nuclear weapons. Syria is engulfed in civil war and a refugee crisis that now threatens the West.” He continued, “After fifteen years of wars in the Middle East, after trillions of dollars spent and thousands of lives lost, the situation is worse than it has ever been before.” He concluded, “This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death, destruction and weakness.” Trump said, “We are going to defeat the barbarians of ISIS and we are going to defeat them fast.”

    He took time to thank the evangelicals who supported him, noting, “I am not totally sure I deserve it.” And he thanked his wife Melania, and his children for their support. The Trump children were impressive, especially Ivanka, who introduced her father.

    Trump concluded, “I’m with you, and I will fight for you, and I will win for you!” He continued, “We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America Safe again. We will make America great again!”

    Trump’s speech was not about optimism, hope, the American spirit, or President Ronald Reagan’s “Bright shining light on a hill.” Instead, it was filled with the same themes that secured him the Republican Party’s nomination. It wasn’t a typical Republican speech, especially his attacks against business and free trade, and it was short on specifics. It will not appeal to Democrats who support Hillary Clinton, and it may not play well with independents.

    But nothing about Trump’s campaign so far has gone according to conventional wisdom.

    My Best Friend Is 20 Years Older Than Me, Here’s What I’ve Learned

    My best friend is a Filipino with kids as old as me.

    It also doesn’t help that she’s female and I’m male.

    Now pay attention. I want you to notice what you think about this. I want you to notice what your immediate assumptions are. Do you believe me? Are you not sure? Do you think I must be lying?

    Most of the time society assumes the worst.

    They think we MUST be in a relationship. We MUST be hiding it from absolutely everybody. But no matter how much dirt my friends or her friends try to dig out, they still come up empty-handed every time.

    That’s because there’s nothing happening.

    You know what we do? We do things that normal friends would. We sit and talk. We laugh about work. We confide and trust one another. We go out. The chemistry that everyone else sees is so easily mistaken for love, but that’s just because we know each other so well.

    I can’t tell you how this happened. The stars aligned and for some reason we had the perfect amount of compatibility. But if you think about it you’ll see why we’re compatible. I’m 23 and I’m very much open to everything. I want to learn from the experience of everyone.

    What better way to learn about life than to talk to someone twice my age from another country? And guess what? I’ve learned more than you can ever imagine. It’s the lessons that I’ve learned from this wonderful person that have shaped my decisions for the past year.

    She told me one thing, and that was to stay single and enjoy life while I can. She got married when she was 21 and wished she could’ve done things over. I’m currently out in San Francisco, writing in my blog and travelling the United States. I owe it all to her.

    The bigger point is that society is too often focused on the wrong things–like age, gender, race, and background. It’s for this reason that our growth as human beings becomes stunted. We only hang out with those our age who want to party and fall in love on a whim. Why not become friends with someone older? Why not learn about the implications of a divorce and marrying early and having children?

    There’s a whole wealth of experience that we’re missing out on. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Many of my friends rushed to get married before they got to travel outside of their own state. I know from my experience with my best friend that this might not always be the best plan of action.

    I learned so much from her.

    I learned that being 40 doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun like you’re 21. I learned that being a single parent demands a departure from how you acted before a divorce. I learned patience. I learned that there’s a point where friends become family. I learned that Filipino people have the best hospitality.

    My decision to commit social suicide by being seen with a woman twice my age in public paid dividends for me that I’ll continue to reap for years to come.

    Friendships can be weird, but I’m convinced that it’s the most beautiful thing human beings are capable of creating. Don’t limit yourself because of what people may think. I say, go for it.

    Stay Cool This Summer Without an AC

    With temperatures reaching into the high 90s and triple digits across the country this week, I want to discuss how you can cool down safely in a heat wave without an air conditioner. Although cooling centers and air conditioners are great options for everyone, sometimes things might not work out as planned and your AC might break down, the store or cooling center might be closed, or there’s a regional blackout. When this kind of situation arises, remember to stay hydrated and give these cooling tips a try.

    Watch: Dr. Oz’s Summertime Sleep Solution

    Cook Outdoors or Make No-Cook Recipes

    The warmest room in a residence tends to be the kitchen, where heat is generated to cook food. Keep the temperature inside your apartment or house cool by tossing no-cook salads, snacking on no-bake energy bars, or cooking outdoors on your porch or backyard. If you prefer to grill outside, follow this quick and easy grilling guide.

    Watch: Gluten-Free Recipes: No Cooking Required!

    Set Up Your Fan Strategically

    Because hot air rises from the ground up, a ceiling fan isn’t your best choice when it comes to indoor room fans. The best place to set up a fan is to use a rotating fan on the floor. Position your fan with its blades across from an open window to create a cross-breeze. Use another fan by the window to vent hot air out as well. For more of a cooling effect, place a bowl of ice next to your floor fan so the fan will blow the rising cool air from the melting ice cubes into the room and bounce off the opposite wall. This will keep cool air circulating inside.

    Try Spray Bottles or Wet Cloths and Sheets

    Fill a spray bottle with cold water and spritz anytime you need a chill. Dampen a linen or cotton sheet and hang it by an open window to catch any breeze that comes through. You can also keep a wide bucket of water by the foot of a window and hang the sheet so the bottom portion touches the water. As the water evaporates and travels up the sheet, any breeze that passes through will feel cool. To cool down your skin, wet a cloth with cold or chilled water to use as a cold compress in a pinch.

    Watch: Your Most Embarrassing Summer Questions

    Turn Off Electronics

    Powering down any non-essential electronics is just one small but significant way to keep additional hot air from circulating. Shut down anything not being used or that doesn’t need to be turned on like power strips, electric equipment like computers and televisions, and electric lights.

    Use Awnings, Window Blinds, Curtains, or Shades

    If you’re not near tree shade, use awnings for an artificial covering. When you’re indoors, keep blinds, curtains or shades drawn to reduce the amount of solar heat that enters through open windows. Look for thermal curtains or shades and give your windows a checkup to see if they’re energy-efficient. You can keep windows open for air circulation but try to leave half the window covered so you don’t get the maximum sun exposure you would get otherwise. If nighttime hours are cooler, open windows and doors to let the cool air inside.

    Donald Trump Flunks Actual Sanity Test Given By Keith Olbermann

    Time for some armchair psychiatry. 

    Sports and political commentator Keith Olbermann used the 20 items on the Hare Psychopathy Checklist ― an actual clinical tool used to help diagnose psychopathy ― to assess Donald Trump. 

    The results? 

    Well, let’s just say the GOP presidential candidate probably won’t be bragging about his YUGE numbers on this one.  

    Read Olbermann’s column in Vanity Fair, or watch his analysis of the test in the clip above, which was posted online by the magazine on Thursday.

    (h/t Raw Story)

     

    Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.

    The Blonde Samurai

    The Blonde Samurai


    Spring 1873: I arrived in Japan a virgin bride, heartsick and anxious beyond measure. Yet I embraced this perplexing world with my soul laid bare after uncovering an erotic, intoxicating power I hardly knew that I, Katie O''Roarke, possessed.Japan was a world away from my tedious Western existence, a welcome distraction from my recent marriage to a cold and cruel husband. But when James attacked me in a drunken rage, I could tolerate it no longer…. I had no choice but to escape into the surrounding hills. I awoke in the arms of Akira, a young Samurai, and it was he who took me to Shintaro, the head of the powerful Samurai clan.At first distrustful, Shintaro came to me every day for a fortnight until my need for him made my heart race at the very sound of his feet upon the wooden floor. He taught me the way of the Samurai—loyalty, honor, self-respect—and the erotic possibilities of inner beauty unleashed. It is his touch that shatters my virginal reserve, evoking danger and physical pleasures that linger beyond our fervent encounters. But James means to find me, to make me pay for his humiliation. I can no longer hide amongst the orange blossoms as rebellions rage, and as my own secret continues to grow….

    This Cannot Be The Convention That Donald Trump Wanted

    CLEVELAND ― There were no plagiarized lines Wednesday night at the Republican convention. No insinuations of satanism, or half-empty crowds during late-night speeches. Instead, there was thunderous booing of a prime-time speaker and lingering questions about whether the Trump campaign will ever be able to bring the GOP’s warring factions together.

    The night was supposed to belong to vice presidential nominee Mike Pence, who delivered a paint-by-numbers conservative address befitting the role he’s being asked to play on the ticket. But it will be remembered for the booing endured ― or perhaps engineered ― by GOP nominee Donald Trump’s former top challenger, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who not only refused to endorse the Republican nominee during his speech, but also encouraged attendees to vote their conscience.

    Cruz’s play will be the subject of endless debate in the weeks ahead. It certainly will feed speculation that he and others see Trump as a general election loser, whose defeat will deliver new opportunities to reshape and lead the Republican Party. What’s undoubtedly clear is that this wasn’t an act of defiance by some rogue agent. Yes, Trump has the vast majority of support from Republican voters, many of them converts.

    “I love him,” said Dena DeCamp, a Florida delegate and president of the Florida Federation of Republican Women. “He was not my first choice. Rubio was my first choice. … But during the campaign, even before Rubio was out, my husband and I would be watching and listening to Donald Trump, and saying he was making so much sense.”

    But in the halls of the convention, where the party elite chat in hushed tones, he’s no loved figure.

    One delegate who supported the presidential candidacy of Ohio Gov. John Kasich ― whose absence from the convention was as astonishing as Cruz’s act of defiance ― was asked if Wednesday night was bittersweet. “No,” he replied. “Just bitter.”

    A Cruz delegate said he felt “numb” watching the coronation of Trump. “I’m just stumbling through the motions.” Asked if booze was helping, he playfully replied: “maybe.”

    An alternate delegate from Texas said he was “here for the balloons, not for the nominee.”

    But even as opposition to Trump lingers in the corners of the GOP, the candidate himself has a few factors working in his favor. And they were plainly visible on Wednesday night. He is an expert showman, tactically upstaging Cruz by entering the hall and drawing the eyeballs of the room as Cruz’s speech ended. And, unlike during the early stages of the primary, Trump has a widening net of support.  

    “Look, people in this hall, a lot of them worked really hard for Ted,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) a prominent Trump endorser, told The Huffington Post. “They believe in Ted. They were passionate. And it’s harder for them. But out there, among the voters, I saw a poll, 87 percent had rallied behind Trump and I think that’s going to continue to grow.”

    “There are a few holdouts,” Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) acknowledged. “But for every one of those, there are 10 people here who have never been to a convention before.”

    With a difficult electoral map and putrid polling numbers, Trump must hope that he is drawing more people into the political process, as Inhofe suggested. But if the convention was viewed as a means for inspiring those usually sedentary voters, then Trump’s aides will have their disappointments.

    There has been no thematic consistency to the proceedings. Each night has had distractions. Revelations that Trump’s wife Melania had cribbed some of her speech from first lady Michelle Obama’s 2008 address drowned out all other stories from the opening session. Tuesday brought the now infamous chants that Hillary Clinton should be jailed for her use of a private email server. And Wednesday came Cruz, who was booed again outside Quicken Loans Arena after his speech. Many screamed for the senator to “go to hell.”

    Even the lower-profile speakers have lacked star power or, for that matter, crisp and unapologetic boosting of the man now at the top of the ticket.

    Florida Gov. Rick Scott, one of Wednesday’s first speakers, prefaced his support of Trump by admitting “he can be a little impolite and a little gruff and for some people he may be too direct.”

    Trump may very well leave Cleveland with political momentum, though much will depend on his own speech Thursday ― one of the most-anticipated convention addresses in modern memory.  

    But he also will emerge with a faction of the party still smarting about the primary. Outside the arena, members of the Texas delegation gathered around high-top tables filled with drinks, furious with how Cruz had been treated and convinced that Trump’s campaign had whipped up the booing. 

    “Trump walking into the arena proved that he is a classless individual, okay?” said Jeremiah Hunter, a delegate from Longview, Texas. “Because he stole the thunder from Ted Cruz right when he was ending his speech. That’s classless. It was deliberate and anyone who thinks it’s not deliberate is delusional. And that’s what I have to say about that.”

    Trump’s backers, too, have grown increasingly frustrated with those refusing to fall in line. Carl Paladino, the Buffalo, New York, real estate developer who is one of Trump’s top supporters, floated the idea that Cruz may have cost himself a chance at being appointed by a President Trump to the U.S. Supreme Court for his act of defiance, before downplaying Trump’s vindictiveness.

    “I don’t think he will hold that against him,” Paladino told The Huffington Post. “He will still consider him to be a Supreme Court justice. Donald rolls with the punches.”

    That seems diplomatic, compared with the response of a donor who reportedly had to be restrained from attacking Cruz in a suite after his speech.

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee took to Facebook to rail against Cruz’s speech. And radio talk show host Laura Ingraham, in one of the night’s better-received speeches, painted holdouts in the audience as whiny, thoughtless, wimps.

    “Even all you boys with wounded feelings and bruised egos … You must honor your pledge to support Donald Trump now,” she said. “Tonight. Tonight.”

    Jonathan Cohn, Amanda Terkel and Jennifer Bendery contributed reporting.

    Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.

    3 Things A Sister Learned From Her Dead Brother About The Afterlife

    2016-07-20-1469041258-8062814-anniekagan.jpg

    (photo credit: Deena Feinberg)

    This is Annie Kagan. She’s the sister and courageous storyteller.

    Billy Fingers is her brother. He’s the beloved, yet “bad boy” dead one. He had been drinking and ran across a highway in Florida where he got hit by a car. Sadly, that is how he lost his life.

    Billy’s life included drug abuse, alcoholism and homelessness. It also included his greatness — helping kids in the court system, running drug centers, living a wealthy lifestyle on the upper east side of Manhattan. You could say he did it all, or at least tried to.

    Three weeks after he died in 2005, Annie says Billy began telepathically communicating with her. It was the last thing this Queens girl expected, but she said she eventually opened up to it. He told her about his life, his death, and where he is now. The details are in Annie’s book, The Afterlife of Billy Fingers: How My Bad Boy Brother Proved to Me There is Life After Death.

    2016-07-20-1469041302-9019000-BillyFinger.jpg
    (William Cohen aka Billy Fingers, photo credit: Murry Cartan)

    I asked Annie to share three things about what Billy learned or experienced surrounding death. The three things that were most interesting, she said, were probably the most controversial as well. Annie writes in an email:

    1. According to Billy, there is no judgment or punishment in the afterlife. That’s because the nature of the Divine is Pure Bliss.

    2. There’s a lot going on in the next dimension aside from reuniting with loved ones. As the Soul evolves, sometimes it is just between the Soul and the Source.

    3. When we evolve to a high level, when we are done being born on earth, we eventually leave behind our Souls and become pure Spirit.

    This list is a lot to take in. I have to stop. Breathe. For one, can you imagine what Pure Bliss feels like? Can you imagine living in another dimension? Can you ever imagine dropping your Soul to merge with Source? Oh, my. This is existential. And here I was this morning, trying to figure out a way to get from Brooklyn to New Jersey for my two nieces graduation party. At the same time, according to Annie, Billy says spiritual evolution could be taking me on a cosmic journey for which I apparently need no mode of transportation.

    Toward the end of the book, Annie writes, Billy says:

    “I am a king, a drug addict, a saint and a beggar.”

    The only thing I would add is this: Billy, you’re also a beloved teacher. Thank you.

    You can find information on Annie Kagan’s book on her website AfterLifeOfBillyFingers.

    Annie also posts excerpts from the book on her Facebook Page Afterlife of Billy Fingers

    The blog is written by Geri Hearne, an intuitive medium, who presents a monthly message from Spirit on her webpage www.heavencantwait.org

    Have you heard from a deceased loved one? What did they communicate to you? Share in the comments, maybe I’ll feature you in an upcoming Heaven On Earth blog.

    See you next week!

    Life 2.0 With Gail Becker

    When to Jump, an independent media partner of The Huffington Post, is a curated community featuring the ideas and stories of people who have made the decision to leave something comfortable and chase a passion.

    At 7 a.m., she caught a plane from New York to Los Angeles. Coming directly from LAX, Gail Becker arrived at the Bullpen with two handbags and a Starbucks cup holder.

    Flying in from the East coast was certainly familiar to Gail. In her previous life as an executive with the world-renowned public relations firm Edelman, she traveled often. This cross-country flight, however, was one of her first as an entrepreneur.

    I was there for When to Jump, along with a camera crew, to find out what motivates someone to walk away from what many would consider a dream job. We all shook hands and introduced ourselves in the lobby of the Bullpen, the marketing firm Gail hired to brand what she referred to as her “Life 2.0” projects.

    While the guys set up the cameras and lighting equipment, Gail and I talked about everything from gun violence to entrepreneurship to Big 10 football. We talked for 15 or so minutes before the cameras were ready and we moved into the conference room. She offered up that she had another coat that she could wear if it looked better. Being four guys with no fashion expertise, it felt like a courtesy but we decided that her red jacket would pop better against the chain-like backdrop. She changed her coat (and shoes), clipped on her microphone, asked for a hair check and we got started.

    “How did you know it was time to jump?” I asked.

    “I guess it was shortly after my father died, about a year ago,” she began.

    Gail attributes her success to her work ethic and fearlessness, traits passed down by her father. An Auschwitz survivor, he made his way to America with literally nothing and eventually built a successful business and family. Gail never lost sight of the sacrifices her father made and even produced a documentary about his return to Auschwitz called A Journey with Purpose.

    The death of her father called into question the purpose in her own life. What was she put on this earth for and was she doing it? While helping other women navigate and ascend the corporate ladder was certainly a passion, and Edelman was number one in the world, was Gail Becker even doing what she was called to be doing? And if her calling was elsewhere, was she destined for even greater things in the future or was she a fool for being emotionally greedy?

    Gail had the job that most people would sacrifice limbs for. As General Manager of Edelman’s Los Angeles office, Gail was the face of the largest PR firm in the world in the entertainment industry’s most active market. Three awards shows, two movie premiers, a blockbuster album release: just another July on Gail’s calendar.

    She had also built a voice as an empowering advocate for women in the workplace through her blog “Yes, I Can Walk in These” and, behind the scenes, worked to increase the presence of women in executive positions by 33 percent.

    After 16 years, Gail walked away from that to do something more satisfying that she hadn’t even fully identified yet. One of her largest concerns was how the many women that looked up to her, whom she had mentored and coached for years, would view her. She didn’t want to be seen as a hypocrite or traitor but she also couldn’t silence the growing voice in her head intimating that there was more — that this stop on her journey with purpose was just a layover and it was time for the next leg.

    Gail felt relief when she announced her resignation and, instead of spite, received over 2,000 emails from people all over the world encouraging her and congratulating her bravery.

    I asked her how it’s been since then: “I want to wake up and work. I’m working harder than I’ve ever worked. But because you’re working on something that you’re passionate about, it’s just a totally different part of your brain. It’s your heart and your brain working together. That is a powerful combination.”

    Gail is now writing a book and starting a company that “has nothing to do with PR.” She still splits time between LA and New York but feels much more satisfied doing so after jumping — “Give yourself permission to chase your dreams.” And, stealing a nugget from her final blog post, it’s better to say “oops” than “what if.”

    Stop The Violence And Hate: 5 Things You Can Do Now

    2016-07-20-1469048933-7840592-sNEIGHBORHOODsmall.jpg

    I am sure everyone reading this can agree on one thing — the violence and hate needs to stop, and it needs to stop now. I am talking about the daily violence and hatred that is going on around the world. The fire of violence is consuming us, and it seems to be a raging fire. The flames are being fanned every day, on TV, in the news, on social media, on talk radio, at the dinner tables, in the offices down the street.

    The violence is committed in the name of justice, in the name of an ideology, in the name of enforcement, for revenge or to right a wrong. I am peaceful man and I will confess it hurts my heart to see such death and hated. We have so much innocent blood being shed for… what?

    As novelist and humanitarian Wendall Berry once said, “Violence breeds violence. Acts of violence committed in justice or in affirmation of rights or in defense of peace do not end violence. They prepare and justify its continuation.”

    So what can you do to stop it? You are just one person right? What can one person do? I think there are simple things we can all do to help stop it.

    1. Start with you. As the old song said: “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.” If there is to be peace, then you need to start with you by not supporting, condoning, endorsing violence in any way. I see messages on social media that say, “Well I am glad they got justice — they deserved it!” They are endorsing the murder of another human being for justice. This is not justice, it just murder. So even if you don’t commit violence yourself, don’t be the one who feeds the beast in the form of encouragement. Don’t support this kind of behavior anywhere. Make a daily commitment (not just lip service) to being kind and loving to everyone you meet and interact with. Show others in the world that kindness comes on all colors shapes and sizes. It is not going to be easy — nothing worthwhile ever is — and you are going to have days when you are tired and fail. But the next day, get dust yourself off and try again.

    2. Start with your family. Teach your children to be kind, to be aware of other people feelings, to give back and to take care of others. Teach them empathy and caring and make it one of your family values. The way to change a culture is first and foremost at home first. Teach them to respect all people or all races creeds and colors. As a parent, show them through your actions how to be a kind soul. Don’t allow them to talk bad about others or to express hate. Let them know that is not how kind people act and that it is not acceptable behavior. As Nelson Mandela once said, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for loves comes more naturally to the human heart than the opposite.”

    3. Start with your neighborhood. Do you know your neighbors? Reach out to them and get to know them. Be bold and knock on their door and say hi. Tell them as neighbors you need to stick together. Have a block party and get to know one another. Let them know you have their back. Take initiative and form a community association. Talk to each other. Have a community of connection and kindness. Our nation is a nation, but it is really made up of one neighborhood, and many neighborhoods make up a town, and many towns make up a state. Many states create a nation. You can’t change a nation but you can change your little pocket of the world, by creating and spreading peace and kindness in your neighborhood.

    4. Start to volunteer. There are lots or people in the world that need care and help. When someone volunteers their time and energy to help someone else — hearts are healed and hatred dissipates. It’s hard to hate when you see people cares about you. I have done volunteer work with children, and I have seen the transformation power of what love can do to heal.

    5. Start to listen. We need to stop being so polarized — no one wants to listen to anyone who doesn’t agree with them. In Washington DC, politicians just don’t listen to anyone on the other side of the aisle. We must start listening to other people with an open mind and trying to understand their world, their perspective. As Tennessee Williams once said, “I think hate is a feeling that can only exist where there is no understanding.”

    I am asking you today in reading this to commit to being a bright and shining well of peace, good will and kindness. Let the cool and deep water of that well extinguish the flames of violence and hate.

    Walmart Unveils New Lines Of Ugly Apples And Potatoes

    Walmart has started to see the beauty in ugly produce.

    The nation’s largest grocer on Tuesday announced a new initiative to sell “ugly” apples in 300 Florida stores, according to a blog from the company. Beginning in May, the company also started selling misshapen potatoes in and around Texas that would have otherwise been wasted.

    These announcements come three weeks after The Huffington Post launched its Reclaim campaign to spotlight the issue of food waste. Part of our effort targeted Walmart in the hopes of getting the chain to stock its shelves with a variety of imperfect fruits and vegetables across its massive network of stores. 

    Up to 40 percent of food in the U.S. goes uneaten, according to a study from the Natural Resources Defense Council. Some of the food is composted or turned into animal feed, but most of it winds up in landfills, according to the organization. A significant contributor to the problem is grocery chains rejecting produce because it does not meet standards for ideal size, shape or appearance, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. 

    Walmart’s new moves are its first initiatives to sell produce specifically branded as ugly or imperfect on its packaging in the U.S, Walmart spokesperson John Forrest Ales told HuffPost.

    “What’s different now is that we’re having potatoes and apples of this grade on the shelf with the branding,” Ales said. “This is the first time the suppliers have come up with brands that are related to selling ugly produce.”

    But activists say the effort represents only a fraction of the total amount of cosmetically imperfect produce rejected by grocery stores.

    “While this is another good step, it’s still just a couple items,” food waste activist Jordan Figueiredo told The Huffington Post via email. 

    What activists are looking for, according to Figueiredo, is a large-scale program selling all types of ‘ugly’ produce ― too small, too large, misshapen, off-color ― derived from the “massive amount of produce” going to waste on farms due to cosmetic standards. They point to what Walmart has done in the U.K., with its Wonky Veg Box, as a good example.

    Ales says Walmart has been selling “so-called ugly produce” for years ― putting imperfectly sized avocados and corn, or over-ripe Roma tomatoes, on shelves. He also said a certain amount of sales of over- or under-sized produce is “pretty common across the grocery industry.”  

    But food activists say they are looking for more radical changes from major grocery chains, such as large-scale programs to sell ugly produce and educate customers.

    In the U.S., as much as 30 percent of all apples and pears grown “don’t make the cut” for cosmetic reasons, according to Walmart’s blog.

    A recent study from the Guardian paints even starker numbers: half of all produce grown in the U.S. may be discarded because it’s bruised, misshapen, oddly sized or has some other non-threatening deformity.

    Walmart’s new initiatives will make some strides against food waste by bringing potatoes that are “less than perfect” to more than 400 stores across Texas and nearby states, and “ugly apples” to around 300 stores in Florida.

    Both items will be sold to customers in bundles at a lower price per pound than traditional potatoes or apples would be, according to Ales.

    While Walmart’s two new initiatives are a step in the right direction, both activists and consumers say they want to see more.

    On Wednesday, Figueiredo hand-delivered a petition to Walmart with more than 143,000 signatures, demanding that the grocery chain do more to combat the country’s food waste crisis. 

    “If produce fails to make the grade for size, shape, or color, retailers deem it ‘ugly’ and refuse to sell it in their stores,” the petition reads. “Tell [Walmart] to add the ‘uglies’ to their store aisles so you can save money, fight hunger and help the environment all in one.”  

    Walmart’s stores in the United Kingdom have made more progress than those in the U.S. to sell ugly produce.

    Asda, Walmart’s U.K. grocery chain, began selling boxes of “wonky” vegetables earlier this year, for about 30 percent off regular prices. The program proved so successful, the company expanded the offer from 250 to 550 stores in March.  

    Now activists in the U.S. are hoping Walmart will do the same in the same here, selling ugly vegetables in its more than 5,000 stores nationwide.

    “[Walmart’s ugly potatoes and apples] are also weather-blemished,” said Figueiredo, “which is not consistently happening like most ‘ugly’ produce is: Weather blemished is a one-off thing that happens here and there.”

    Ales said the ability to sell ugly produce isn’t entirely in Walmart’s hands, as the amount of ugly produce growers have available can be dependent on external factors like the weather.

    There are a number of factors that impact whether a harvest yields so-called ‘ugly’ produce, including Mother Nature,” Ales said. “When this type of produce is available, we look for ways to provide value for our customers and a return for growers.”

    But Ales says Walmart has no national plans to sell ugly produce in the U.S:

    “We don’t have any current nationwide plans at this time,” Ales told HuffPost. “We do not have specific goals for ugly produce. We’re watching ASDA closely, we brought these two initiatives forward and are continuing to look at new possibilities. There’s always more we can be doing.”

    Take Action Now

    Join thousands of Americans calling on Walmart to help reduce food waste by mounting a comprehensive campaign to sell “ugly” fruit and vegetables.

    An Apology Expert Analyzes The Explanation For Melania Trump’s Plagiarism

    Speechwriter Meredith McIver’s mea culpa for the plagiarism in Melania Trump’s Republican National Convention speech is a genuine statement of contrition that is likely to be accepted, says an expert on apologies.

    It has almost all the essential elements an apology needs to increase its likelihood of being embraced, and appears to be written from the heart and not under instruction by the Trump campaign, according to Roy Lewicki, a professor emeritus of management and human resources at the Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business who specializes in trust development and trust repair.

    However, when viewed in the light of the Trump campaign’s initial reaction to the news that Melania Trump had delivered lines that were previously spoken by Michelle Obama during the 2008 Democratic convention, Lewicki isn’t quite sure what to make of the wider significance of McIver’s statement. Its release is puzzling, to say the least, and presents a fuzzy message on just how trustworthy the Trump campaign is.

    “It’s surprising that this is one of the few times in the campaign that someone has owned up to a mistake or an error, and I would be hard pressed to know exactly why, in her case, this was allowed to sort of come out,” Lewicki said. “Particularly since the campaign and the candidate, in the previous 36 hours, were doing anything they could do to dismiss it or deny it or claim it was a trivial issue.”

    But first, let’s dig into the apology itself

    According to Lewicki’s research on the six essential elements of a sincere and effective apology, McIver hits it out of the park. Those six elements, in order of importance, are:

    1. Acknowledgement of responsibility

    2. Offer of repair

    3. Expression of regret

    4. Explanation of what went wrong

    5. Declaration of repentance

    6. Request for forgiveness

    The more of these elements an apology contains, the more likely a recipient is to accept it, according to Lewicki’s recent study published in April

    Here is McIver’s statement in full, re-typed from the PDF released on the Trump campaign website Wednesday morning. We’ve annotated it to point out the statements that fulfill the apology elements on Lewicki’s list.

    TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:  

    My name is Meredith McIver and I’m an in-house staff writer at the Trump Organization. I am also a longtime friend and admirer of the Trump family. 

    In working with Melania Trump on her recent First Lady Speech, we discussed many people who inspired her and messages she wanted to share with the American people. A person she has always liked is Michelle Obama. Over the phone, she read me some passages from Mrs. Obama’s speech as examples. I wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech. I did not check Mrs. Obama’s speeches [4: Explanation of what went wrong]. This was my mistake [1: Acknowledgment of responsibility], and I feel terrible for the chaos I have caused Melania and the Trumps, as well as to Mrs. Obama. No harm was meant [3: Expression of regret].

    Yesterday, I offered my resignation to Mr. Trump and the Trump family [6: Request for forgiveness, or what Lewicki describes as a “backhanded request”], but they rejected it. Mr. Trump told me that people make innocent mistakes and that we learn and grow from these experiences [5: Declaration of repentance].

    I asked to put out this statement because I did not like seeing the way this was distracting from Mr. Trump’s historic campaign for president and Melania’s beautiful message and presentation. 

    I apologize for the confusion and hysteria my mistake has caused. Today, more than ever, I am honored to work for such a great family. I personally admire the way Mr. Trump has handled this situation and I am grateful for his understanding. 

    Sincerely,

    [Signature]

    Meredith McIver

    It’s important to note that Element 4, the explanation of what went wrong, can further affect the way an apology lands because it could either be an honest mistake or a violation of integrity that reflects on a person’s character. In McIver’s case, she explains it was an honest mistake. 

    You’ll also see that Element 2 is missing ― that’s because there really is no way to repair the fact that Melania Trump delivered a partially plagiarized speech to an audience of 23 million TV viewers, Lewicki explained. But barring that, the statement is well-crafted and appears to convey genuine remorse for the mistake.

    “This is a case of a good apology that’s sort of surprising because it stands out in such contrast to the tactics of the broader campaign,” said Lewicki. 

    Indeed, when one considers McIver’s statement within the wider context of the Trump campaign’s response to accusations that Melania’s speech had been at least partially cribbed from Michelle Obama’s, the intended effect of her apology becomes less certain.

    The campaign had spent the day after the speech bizarrely denying the plagiarism had taken place (despite the one-in-87 billion chance those words had assembled themselves randomly in about the same order Obama had delivered them), blaming Hillary Clinton for the media attention and even angrily protesting that the plagiarism accusations amounted to an assertion that Obama invented the English language

    On top of it all, the candidate himself appeared to revel in the continued media coverage of his wife’s speech, which makes the point of McIver’s apology (to regain trust and start the forgiveness process) suspect, according to Lewicki.

    “That’s been a consistent process in the whole Trump campaign to keep the media focus on them by whatever means they need to,” Lewicki concluded. “Which, from my point of view, makes the credibility of the candidate and the campaign sort of questionable.”

    South Dakota Republican Delegate Facepalms As His State Selects Donald Trump

    Sometimes, there’s just no hiding your feelings.

    Isaac Latterell, a Republican in South Dakota’s House of Representatives, did a classic facepalm as his state voted for Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday. 

    As the delegation started the announcement, Latterell could be seen rolling his eyes and shaking his head. And when they announced the name “Donald J. Trump,” he planted his face right into his palm:

    Latterell, a Ted Cruz supporter who has compared Planned Parenthood to ISIS, said it was his way of protesting the selection. 

    I just think that it’s a sad day for the Republican party,” Latterell told the Argus Leader. “I don’t think that the candidate that was chosen has a chance of winning the election or being different than the other nominee.”

    How I Parent My Hypersensitive Son — And Why There’s Hope For Us Both

    This article first appeared on QuietRev.com

    Last week, eight rambunctious first-graders were dropped off at our apartment for my son’s birthday party, and I was the only adult in the room. Not so long ago, I wouldn’t have felt comfortable even if I’d had other grown-up support. As I’ve written before, birthday celebrations often overwhelmed my tender little guy. But he’s changed so much in the past year that I decided to give it a go, even sans my business-traveling wife—and I’m very glad I did. Watching him chat with his friends about Pixar movies, play a game of telephone through a mouth stuffed with pizza, and have a relatively controlled pillow fight in the final few minutes before pick-up proved how far Felix has come in his social and psychological development.

    My son’s hypersensitivity and social anxiety, traits that many quiet children exhibit, have been part of his personality since day one. As a baby, he never wanted to detach from me and my wife even while sleeping; this continued into his toddler years and beyond. From those earliest days tottering around the playground in diapers to a daddy-son dance class to a part-time preschool program, Felix faced challenges socializing with his peers and participating in group activities without becoming agitated. Normally a highly verbal child, in situations like these, he ended up retreating into a nonverbal frenetic state, expressing himself physically and sometimes hurting others.

    We were fortunate enough to be able to survive on my wife’s income with only supplemental money from my freelance work, and we decided as a family that I would stay home with him every day rather than try more preschool programs. So when Felix was three, he and I retreated into our own world, avoiding classes, playdates, and outings altogether. But when he turned four, my wife and I felt the time had come to try school once more. It again didn’t go well.

    On the advice of his teachers, we sought a professional behavioral assessment. It revealed that Felix was very bright and creative as well as full of anxieties and special sensory needs—but not to the extent of receiving a clinical diagnosis. As parents, we often label our kids in order to quickly communicate a thumbnail of our experience with other moms and dads. “She’s a picky eater,” we might say. Or simply, “terrible twos.” Felix’s emotional development resisted such classification. His issues were clearly not the norm, but we didn’t have an easy answer for why he acted the way he did. We struggled to communicate to family and friends just what was going on because he didn’t fit into any category. This was tough on everyone.

    Now, at seven, he’s a very different kid. He connects with other children over toys and books such as Harry Potter. He participates in organized games of tag and is comfortable enough to crack jokes and play pretend. He can function in a classroom. In fact, he’s quite popular among the adults in his school—even those who don’t work with him directly greet him by name and with warm smiles. In part, his transformation has come about with age and maturity, but it’s also the result of a deep, intentional effort on the part of many grown-ups in his life to help him understand his sensitive introvert nature and control the anxieties he experiences in day-to-day life.

    Here’s what we did to effect positive change:

    My wife and I sought professional help and found a school that supported him.

    Following his assessment in Pre-K, we advocated with the Department of Education (DOE) for a special education teacher to join Felix for several hours every week. Later, in kindergarten, Felix had two teachers. One was certified in special ed, and the other worked with Felix one on one to help him navigate interactions with his peers. His helper also took him on walks and did recharging exercises with him when Felix became overstimulated or needed a release from his seat.

    In addition, Felix saw an occupational therapist twice a week to work on self-soothing activities such as meditative breathing and stretching. Plus, he belonged to a peer group of other boys, whom he met once a week for discussions about feelings and behavior. Learning about himself and how his behavior affects others has been a core part of his education for three years now.

    Living in our part of New York City makes us very lucky: DOE provides resources for students like Felix (although you must know to ask for them). Everything, from the assessment facility to the DOE offices to a good school, is within walking distance of our apartment. My ability to make midday meetings, and even the fact that I pick him up from school each day, makes it easy to communicate with the school staff and administration. We have built a partnership with the school, and we always feel seen and heard.

    I recognize that a lot of our advocacy has been effective because of the privilege granted to a two-parent, hetero-normative, educated white family. Even the fact that Felix’s primary caregiver is male may work to his advantage in the system. So a combination of factors are at play here: we’ve been proactive in seeking help, but we’re also fortunate that our requests for assistance have mostly been met and that the school supports Felix as much as we do at home. I wish these resources and ability to advocate successfully were equitably available to all families with little boys like Felix.

    We discussed feelings, a lot.

    For children, one of the most challenging aspects of dealing with sadness, nervousness, fear, or anger is that they lack a vocabulary to communicate their emotions. They’re also not always able to determine exactly what they’re feeling, which makes the sensations that much bigger. My wife and I often talked about our interior states with Felix and tried as much as possible to use “I” instead of “you” statements. For example, we’d say, “I’m frustrated that I’ve had to tell you three times to clear the table for dinner.” When reading, we stopped to ask him what he thought the characters in the book were feeling and why. We modeled a vocabulary for describing the invisible world of thoughts and emotions.

    Again, we also sought outside help for this. Felix saw a play therapist every week, who engaged Felix in games designed to strengthen his empathy, help him control his nervousness, and communicate what’s on his mind. On our fridge hangs a figure that Felix colored, mapping his feelings to his body. Anger, for example, lives in his hands. Fear in his throat. Excitement in his belly. This helped him understand the mind-body connection and enabled him to put words to what was going on inside of him instead of expressing it physically.

    I developed a support system for myself too.

    For the past two years, I’ve seen a therapist a couple of times a month, one who has experience working with kids like Felix. He advised me on parenting strategies and helped me deal with frustrations in my relationship with my son. He also provided encouragement whenever I felt despondent about Felix’s slow and atypical development. My wife and I are both open to mental health treatment, and I’m grateful we’ve supported each other in this regard.  

    I took less expensive steps as well, relying on friends, some with kids and some without, with whom I had one-on-ones about my parenting worries, hopes, and accomplishments. But I also sometimes needed to not talk about any of this and instead be an adult who wasn’t defined by parenthood.

    In addition, I’ve tried as much as possible to keep exercise a part of my life. My support network has lightened (and enlightened) me, which has been important for me as well as for Felix. I need to be calm in order for him to be calm; if I’m my best self, I can encourage him to be his best self too.

    I modeled how to accept and rebound from social anxieties.

    I shared stories with him of when I was a child and experienced social and performance anxiety, so he knew that he was not alone—I’ve faced similar challenges and gotten a handle on them. I put them into the present tense too, describing a part of me that still feels nervous going to parties or being on stage but also letting him know that it doesn’t prevent me from doing, and eventually enjoying, those things.

    For example, every week when we walk up the steps to his swim class, Felix tells me how his stomach bubbles with trepidation. I tell him how I used to feel the same way before swimming too. We remember how he always has fun once he’s in the water, and that after that first plunge, he’ll feel better. One day, he wants to feel as relaxed in the water as I do, and I remind him that he will. It’s become part of our routine before swimming, one from which he seems to draw strength.

    We never stopped loving, being positive, and celebrating every small achievement.

    This has been the hardest and most important aspect of our relationship with Felix. I tried never to say things like “what is wrong with you?” or compare my son to other children. Instead, I focused on what a wonderful, compassionate, and fun-loving little light of joy he is and tried to nurture that spark. We reviewed situations that didn’t go as either of us would have liked—times when he lost his temper with a friend or became so clingy that he unintentionally hurt me or his mom—and imagined aloud what other actions could have been taken or words said which might have produced a different, more positive outcome. “Now you know for next time,” I’d tell him.

    This isn’t to imply that I didn’t sometimes express displeasure at his decisions or feel disappointed when I witnessed his nervousness get the better of him. I did, and I do. But I tried to keep in my mind—and his—the fact that we are temporal creatures, growing over time. “Look how far you’ve come,” I’d tell him. “You’re going to keep changing your whole life. That’s what life is: we’re always moving and learning new things about the world and ourselves in it.”

    I believe this with all my heart. Even just a year ago, Felix wouldn’t have been able to successfully navigate a birthday party with his peers. He wouldn’t even have known whom to invite, his concept of friendship was still so nascent. Today, he’s thriving socially, in part by mastering his anxiety and in part by just going with it, knowing that nervousness isn’t a permanent condition or necessarily a negative one. This gives me strength and hope too as I continue to learn about my own nature by nurturing his.

    And so, even though it was his birthday, I feel like my little boy is the one who’s given me a gift: the gift of providing him the parenting I wish I’d had as a sensitive, quiet child. In the process of helping him become a more confident, capable, and compassionate social being, I’m becoming a better one myself.

    Clinical Trials For New Alzheimer’s Medication

    Inside Science News Servicenoted on April 16, 2016 that “Alzheimer’s is a graveyard for expensive drug tests. One study showed that between 2000 and 2012, 244 compounds were tested in 413 clinical trials. Only one was approved for use, a failure rate of 99.6 percent.”

    The one medication that was approved since the year 2000, Namzeric, is a medication that combines two previously FDA-approved medications, donepezil and memantine, into one capsule. But neither donepezil nor memantine are medications that effectively treat or significantly improve the lives of most people who take them. Even the third sentence on the Namzaric website reads, “There is no evidence that NAMZARIC prevents or slows the underlying disease process in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.”

    Researchers have simply not been able to come up with any effective medication to prevent, treat, or cure Alzheimer’s disease (AD), but it’s certainly not for lack of trying. According to the latest data from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), there are currently 146 clinical trials testing new medication to effectively treat AD.

    Researchers cannot yet agree on the cause or causes of AD, so it’s understandable that we have yet to discover a medication to prevent, effectively treat, or cure this horrible disease. Will any of these 146 medications currently undergoing clinical trials prove to be “effective” in treating AD? I certainly hope so. But I’m hoping that, if a new medication is approved by the FDA there will be abundant clinical trial evidence that supports its effectiveness. We need medication that will make a “significant improvement” for someone with AD, not another new medication that is relatively ineffective.

    What do I mean by significant improvement? Medication that slows down the rate of decline to allow a person with AD to enjoy a substantially better quality of life than they otherwise would have had, for a sustained period of time, would be a significant improvement. Such improvement would be clinically meaningful in the judgment of doctors and caregivers. Sadly, clinical trial results claiming to demonstrate such “effectiveness” for previously FDA-approved medications did not meet this test.

    Too many clinical trials in the past have used testing instruments to measure effectiveness that do not reflect how people with AD actually function in the real world. That is why the major 2012 Consumer Report study on AD medications concluded that most of the clinical trial evidence demonstrating effectiveness of AD medications showed improvements to be so small that they “would not be considered clinically meaningful by most doctors.”

    Medication resulting in a significant delay in progression of symptoms, or perhaps temporary recovery of some previous memory loss, would be clinically meaningful. Similarly, medication which relieved AD patients suffering from severe anxiety or anger or other negative mood changes for a sustained period of time would significantly improve the quality of life for someone with AD.

    If the clinical trial evidence does not demonstrate that a new medication will significantly improve a person’s ability to interact with people or the environment … if the improvements shown by the person with AD aren’t even considered meaningful by most doctors … then even if such medication is approved by the FDA, that medication will not provide a significant impact for people with AD or be helpful to their caregivers.

    People with AD and their caregivers are already spending fortunes on FDA-approved medications that are ineffective. People with AD and their caregivers do not need any new false bottles of hope.

    How Intuitive Eating Helped Me Recover From Orthorexia

    Before I begin my preaching session on intuitive eating, I have a question: Was your last year of high school everything you wanted it to be and more? I’m going to take a shot in the dark and say, no.

    Unfortunately, life has a way of crushing expectations. The parties were most likely not as exciting or numerous as you thought they would be, and you never imagined your friends wanting to kill each other over a prom date.

    These were the average struggles that I heard my friends vent about, over and over. I, on the other hand, suffered from a disorder called orthorexia.

    Orthorexia begins as a goal to eat more healthfully, but orthorexics obsess over food quality and purity. For me, this obsession stemmed from my need for control in my life. The thought of college freaked me out, and I turned to my diet for comfort.

    I would research foods that boosted metabolism and kept you fuller longer. I would replace vegetable oil with coconut oil, and eat 75% cocoa dark chocolate, all while drinking a hot cup of green tea. I thought I was killin’ the game.

    Turns out, not so much. I dropped 20 pounds in about a month. However, I still did not catch onto the issue. It took me over 6 months to figure out that I had a problem. My healthy food restrictions were not providing my body with enough calories to survive, even at rest.

    This was all before I discovered intuitive eating.

    Intuitive eating, in simple terms, is having a positive outlook on food, and how it benefits, rather than harms your body. This approach does not restrict you from eating anything. Instead, you simply become more aware of your body, and what it is telling you.

    The main rule is as follows: if you are hungry, eat, and stop eating when you are full. Rather than being disappointed in yourself for eating a cookie, intuitive eating strives to rid your brain of those negative thoughts of certain foods.

    I think of intuitive eating as a form of positive psychology, rather than a diet. Why punish yourself for fueling your body? The goal of the practice is to rewire your mind and body so that you can become the healthiest version of yourself.

    share

    There are actual principles to intuitive eating, which you can check out here to help you get started.

    I did not consciously make the decision to eat intuitively. My body was failing, and I needed to eat a lot in order for it to repair itself. Once my body was getting the nutrients it needed, and I became mentally stable, I was able to change my relationship with food. My personal motto became, “everything in moderation.” It was not until recently that I stumbled upon practices like the ones linked above, and realized how similar my new perspective on food was with the intuitive eating lifestyle.

    left: before recovery right: after recovery

    I would be lying if I said I was an intuitive eating expert. I am still learning about the lifestyle myself. Today, I’m as happy and as healthy as I have ever been. I exercise regularly and I eat what I want. No, this does not mean I am taking in 4,000 calories in a day. I still eat well; a lot of fruits, chicken, vegetables, and fish. However, I do not deprive myself of a bacon cheeseburger, or those mighty-fine taquitos. My hope is that your body shaming ends before it ever gets to the point of an eating disorder and that you consider the intuitive eating lifestyle as your jumping off point.
