Who Enabled Trump? Will Sanders Pull a ‘Ferrer’?

2014-02-03-BothSidesNowLogoPlaincolhirescopy1.jpg

LISTEN HERE:

By Mark Green

Stuart Stevens and Ron Reagan — who know something about Republican nomination contests — see Trump is a stress test for our democracy, They discuss how he rose and what lessons the GOP will learn after November. Also: like other primary losers who elevate grievances over beliefs, will Sanders choose to hurt Hillary or Donald?

How the hell did Trump win the GOP Nomination? Yes, the media’s $ 2 billion in-kind gift to the blond bloviator helped boost him. But Stevens and Reagan emphasize other culprits. “It’s like The Guns of August,” says Romney media guru and novelist Stevens, “There was alot of stupidity and cowardice that fed together but mostly it was opponents who foolishly let him win. They thought that if Romney could win a nomination, how hard could it be? But it’s very hard and they never went after Trump.” Why not? Referring to The Emperor’s New Clothes, the Host cites their fear of getting hurt by Trump’s tweets and expectation that one of the other guys would take him on and down. Didn’t happen.

Ron deplores how the media “treated him as a normal candidate when he wasn’t”, instead providing him saturation without analysis. He also blamed a party “kept ignorant by right-wing talk radio and Fox about a Kenyan president, ISIS coming across the border, climate change as a hoax”, a party of nativists and racists that Trump know how to play.

What can the media do now? Since it’s very hard to interview a river of lies and assertions, both hope for more “ridicule.” Stuart: “Trump knows nothing and what he thinks he knows is wrong. So interviewers should ask ‘how many amendments are there in the Bill of Rights and what years did Lincoln serve as president?” Ron argues that the media should have learned its lesson and now always ask why he’s not disclosing his tax returns as all candidates have done going back to Nixon.

But how to pressure him to do so?
Stuart thinks that should be a criterion that the Debate Commission uses before permitting someone in the Fall debates while the Host suggests that Clinton or surrogates should now just assert what’s logical: “Since every recent nominee has released tax returns, we have to assume that either he’s a philanthropic cheapstake, exploits loopholes to pay a low or zero tax rate, or is worth a fraction of his self-touted $ 10b. Since only he can provide the answers and doesn’t, it’s fair to assume he’s a tax fraud until he shows otherwise.”

Host: There are two models of how to cross-examine Trump. When Chris Matthews in a MSNBC town hall asked him a rapid-fire series of questions ending with “would you punish the woman” if abortion is murder, Trump stumbled and said “yes.” And when Trump called into “This Week”, George Stephanopoulos inserted this quick question in a conversation about his tax disclosure, “what ‘s your tax rate?”, provoking Trump’s testosterone to blurt out, “That’s none of your business.” (So the private sex life of a candidate’s spouse is fair game but not a nominee’s tax rate?)

Chance Trump can actually be president? Reagan says 10% while Stevens
ns pegs it at 25%, “which assured a friend of mine until I asked him whether he’d fly a plane with a pilot who crashed a quarter of the time.”

Should Trump lose by the expected 5-10 points that today’s fundamentals indicate, what will the GOP learn? Stevens lauds the RNC and Priebus for conducting a painful but thoughtful “autopsy” after its 2012 loss which concluded that the party had to reach out more to growing minorities, “both for political and moral reasons.” But we then agree this was unlikely given a base that cheers when Mexicans and Muslims are villainized and the Trump/Cruz folks — who totalled 80% of the vote in recent primaries and now comprise most delegates and party regulars — keep trying to out-wing each other notwithstanding the likely 6th popular vote loss in the last 7 presidential contests. Or as preachers say, “it’s the congregation that writes the sermon.”

What does Bernie want? This week saw his supporters shout-down Senator Boxer in Las Vegas, leading her colleague Diane Feinstein to fear another “’68 convention.” Indeed, new polling does show a tightening of the General Election contest because 28% of inflamed Sanders voters now say they’d boycott Hillary in November.

When Clinton mathematically clinches the nomination by the June 7 California primary, what will Sanders do? Will he work with the party & Clinton to defeat the loathed Trump or keep belittling the nominee citing something — Superdelegates unfair! Closed primaries unfair! Wasserman-Schultz mean!? (Actually, Clinton won 10 of 14 “open primaries” with 58% of the vote.) The panel assumes a reconciliation since, in Stevens view, “Trump is the Democrats great unifer.”

Stevens suggests that Clinton choose Sanders as her VP to keep his liberal millennials in the tent. Or perhaps Warren. We then have spirited debate about whether Clinton, who’s doing especially poorly among white working class men, would choose another woman…even one as appealing as the popular populist, Elizabeth Warren. Stuart thinks that’d be smart but “Hillary probably won’t because she’s risk-averse.”

Host: Forgive the Ferrer-Ramirez-Sharpton reference from 2001 but it does seem like a comparable situation. Unless a nominee can unify his/her party, any primary loser can find a pretext to seek revenge by defeating the person who defeated him. And make the margin of difference.

But since the Fall contest will be as pure a contrast between Democracy and Authoritarianism as any presidential contest in our history, it’s hard to believe that a sincere liberal like Sanders and most of his adherents won’t join a progressive nominee on choice, racial justice, economic and social inequality etc. However, as I admit and discuss in my new generational memoir brightinfinitefuture.net, I thought the same thing about Ferrer et. al. in the mayoral race of 2001 after eight years of Giuliani, and was wrong.

Many of us don’t want to think about where our food comes from and how it gets to us. Same with shoes, belts, watchbands, upholstery etc. We buy products in stores, nicely packaged, inanimate, abstract. What we are conditioned to not acknowledge is that this nicely packaged, abstract product is in fact the end result of a process, a chain of events, that includes the brutal, painful slaughter of living beings with eyes, hearts, nervous systems, brains, with feelings and thoughts….much like you, your loved ones, your dog, or cat or bird or fish. Every time we buy, prepare and consume flesh – be it beef, pork, poultry, fish or other – we are (whether we choose to acknowledge it or not) condoning and perpetuating brutal slaughter, of the mentality behind it and the horrendous anguish and suffering from it that we try to hide and bury in the veil of society, commerce and culture, like the monkey covering its eyes and ears with its hands, as if not acknowledging or dealing with it will somehow make it go away or absolve our responsibility for, to and in it. I freely admit that I am not perfect, that I am guilty of participating in and abetting this ongoing genocide. But ever since I saw a video of chicken slaughter I have stopped consuming flesh – the things I love and crave – cooked meat – beef/poultry/fish, jerky, and have been eating greens, root vegetables, beans, grains and fruits – and know what? I’m fine. Yes I have cravings for flesh, but it’s nothing I can’t live with, manage, get through and get over. We’re here in life not just to be trained consumers, but each day we have the power, opportunity and responsibility to somehow make the world better for those around us (including our fellow beings) and for those who follow (including our descendants). Imagine all the suffering and agony in our world on a daily basis from global, brutal slaughter and now try to imagine how the world would change if this slaughter and anguish were eliminated or significantly reduced.

Should You Keep Track Of Workout Calorie Counts?

The Question: Just how accurate is the “calories burned” display on my treadmill? Should I keep track of how much I’m burning off if I’m trying to lose weight?

Answer: That number is just an estimate, and it’s unclear whether knowing it will help you lose weight. 

Exercise trackers and fitness equipment typically estimate the number of calories you burn when you exercise, but experts say you shouldn’t put too much stock into that number — and shouldn’t rely on it to help you lose weight.

Paying attention to calories burned during exercise could also feed into an inaccurate and counterproductive transactional mindset that leads to mindless overeating and weight gain in the long run, says E. Todd Schroeder, director of the Clinical Exercise Research Center at the University of Southern California.

There are several problems with focusing on the number of calories linked to a certain exercise. For one, people tend to overestimate the calories they’ve burned while exercising and underestimate the calories they consume, which could lead to a miscalculation that prevents them from achieving their weight goals.

Secondly, people tend to feel like they’re “entitled” to eat more after a workout, which could lead to weight gain in general. 

“If they think they burned more calories than they did, then they say, ‘I can enjoy a Frappuccino because I did a hard workout,’” Schroeder said. “That’s a big issue.”

And finally, thinking of exercise in such a goal-oriented way may take away from the pleasure of doing the physical activity, which over time could increase the likelihood of dropping out

How your body adjusts to more physical activity over time

There’s even some evidence that your body limits the number of calories it burns in a single day. Research shows that over time, bodies adapt to higher activity levels and eventually become more efficient about the calories they use, says Herman Pontzer, an evolutionary biologist at Hunter College.

Pontzer’s recent study comparing calorie expenditures across many different cultures showed that hunter-gatherers in Tanzania burned about the same amount of calories as an office worker in the U.S. This could be for at least two reasons, he explained. The first theory is that, over time, your body accommodates your level of physical activity by expending fewer calories to execute basic functions, like keeping your immune system running.

“If you increase your activity level a bit, what we see is that your total energy expenditure doesn’t change,” says Pontzer. “But that’s not because you got more efficient at running or walking — your body probably carved a little bit of energy out of all those other tasks to make room for those increased running or walking costs.”

The second theory is that active people might compensate for their exercise in subtle, subconscious ways, like resting more after the activity or remaining sedentary for the rest of the day after a workout.

What calorie counting can do for you

Despite these limitations, most experts agreed that calorie counts might be helpful to get a rough baseline for your activity, as long as you understand that it’s an estimate and probably doesn’t reflect the precise number of calories your body is actually using, says Dr. Pamela Peeke, a spokesperson for the American College of Sports Medicine and author of the book Body For Life For Women

Schroeder concedes that counting calories burned can be useful for people who want to judge their workouts against past performances and use the same machine to calculate it every time. 

But instead of setting a calorie goal with exercise, it’s more valuable to feel present in your body as you move, because it allows you to concentrate on form and intensity, Peeke explained. Her advice: Once or twice, look at the calories display to get a ballpark estimate of what you’re working with, but mostly you should focus instead on how your body feels during the physical activity.  

“You can’t pay attention to your body and your numbers,” Peeke said. “Feel it through.”

How to get an accurate calorie count

Most exercise machines and calorie tracking apps and devices estimate the calories you burn based on data you enter about your age, sex and weight, but things like body composition, training level and exercise intensity all play a role in how many calories you truly burn. And this true number can only be calculated in a lab that measures either the amount of heat your body is giving off, or the amount of oxygen you take in as you exercise. 

But if you’d like to see a estimate, if only to underscore just how difficult it is to “burn off” part of what you eat every day, here’s a chart of common activities and the approximate number of calories that a 125-, 155- and 185-pound person would burn after 30 minutes. 

Reminder: Exercise is less efficient than diet for weight loss

There are so many benefits to physical activity, including increased stamina, stronger muscles and disease prevention, but creating a calorie deficit for weight loss is the least of them. So much hard work can be “undone” in a single high-calorie snack or drink, which is why nutritionists and obesity experts tell people to focus on diet when trying to lose weight.

“Nutrition is what’s going to get you there,” Peeke concluded. “What the physical activity does is optimize what you did in the kitchen.”

How Iran Dominates the Middle East? Soft Power

The mainstream media and politicians have emphasized Iran’s hard power, military capacity and its army’s role in the Middle East, which is part of Tehran’s expansionist policies. The emphasis is warranted.

Nevertheless, focusing solely on Iran’s hard power and military capacity is misplaced. By dedicating all their resources and concentrating on Iran’s military capacity, regional and global powers are running the risk of falling into the Iranian government’s political trap which is what exactly Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, and the high commanders of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) aim for.

It is accurate to argue that governments around the region should take the Islamic Republic’s military capacity as well as the IRGC and Quds forces’ expansions in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen seriously. However, Iran still exerts a significant amount of non-military influence in the region, and continues to expand it, through manipulation of various soft power tactics.

But it is crucial to point out that although Iran’s major strategies of deploying successful soft power resources remain intact, there is going to be a new trend and tactical shift. Iranian leaders are delighted to make noise about their military power, bandwagon on the success of Shiite militias, take credit, and launch missiles to project their power, exaggerate it, and in order to shift the focus from their real goals of exerting influence and having a say in the domestic politics of neighboring countries.

Militarily speaking, Iranian leaders are cognizant of the fact that they are not a match for the American military or other regional powers. The US can easily inflict significant damage and even cripple Iran’s military infrastructure in matter of weeks. Being aware of that, however, the Islamic Republic continues to project its military power in order to steer attention away from the real issues.

Manipulation of soft power

First of all, Iran’s soft power strategies are long-term oriented. As an Iranian official once said to me, the reason behind Iran’s growing presence in the region despite the sanctions and isolation were “soft power accompanied with patience”.

The Islamic republic was established with almost no allies in the region. During the subsequent decades, they managed, with minimal cost to dominate Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon, as well as have proxies in other countries in the region, such as Bahrain and Yemen. If this trends continues, in 10 or 20 years, the number of these proxies and Iran’s influence in the region will absolutely increase.

Before sanctions were lifted, Iran focused primarily on manipulating and capitalizing on the grievances of other groups, building alliances with them, showing them they share the same ideological views (such opposing Israel, opposing their government, helping them topple the Sunni majority government, opposing the United States, etc.)

Iran’s soft power is not only theological but also ideological. Tehran does not only focus on building alliances with Shiites in order to exert its influence in the region and interfere in the domestic politics of countries. For example, Tehran is currently forming strong relationships with some Kurdish Sunni groups by demonstrating to them that Iran shares the same grievances with them.

After building alliances with these groups and forming a united public opinion, Tehran then assists them in becoming political realities in those nations in order to exert its influence through the “legitimate” political institutions of that country. In this case, if the government of that particular nation is overthrown, Iran’s proxy is well-placed to take over (such as in Iraq).

Even if the government is not overthrown, that government will think twice about reacting to Iran (such as Lebanon’s government and Hezbollah). Secondly, Iran’s soft power is multi-layered and sophisticated, encompassing several governmental organizations.

Iran also continues to use other strategies including cultural, educational and religious institutions, such as training powerful Shiite religious figures from other countries in Qum, establishing thousands of seminaries, giving scholarships and fellowships to foreigners to come and study Shiism in Iran, establishing Iranian studies programs in other countries, promoting the Persian language, investing in Arabic and English news outlets (such as Press TV, Al Alam, Al Kawthar), pioneering investments in religious films- which advances Iran’s political version of Islam.

Third, Iran’s soft power is coherent and well-organized, although it might not always produce the outcome that Tehran desires (For example, some instances of tension with Hamas).

As one can see, Iran used both top-down and bottom-up approach to utilize its soft power and exert influence before sanctions were lifted. The emphasis at this time was more on the bottom- up approach. But Iran’s priorities in soft power strategies have tactically shifted due to the sanctions reliefs and its application of hard power.

8 Great Tricks For Reading People’s Body Language

2016-04-21-1461274278-6983253-8GreatTricksForReadingPeoplesBodyLanguageHP.jpg

Body language provides an amazing amount of information on what other people are thinking if you know what to look for. And who hasn’t wanted to read people’s minds at some point?

You already pick up on more body language cues than you’re consciously aware of. UCLA research has shown that only 7% of communication is based on the actual words we say. As for the rest, 38% comes from tone of voice and the remaining 55% comes from body language. Learning how to become aware of and to interpret that 55% can give you a leg up with other people.

When you’re working hard and doing all you can to achieve your goals, anything that can give you an edge is powerful and will streamline your path to success.

TalentSmart
has tested more than a million people and found that the upper echelons of top performance are filled with people who are high in emotional intelligence (90% of top performers, to be exact). These people know the power that unspoken signals have in communication, and they monitor body language accordingly.

Next time you’re in a meeting (or even on a date or playing with your kids), watch for these cues:

Crossed arms and legs signal resistance to your ideas.
Crossed arms and legs are physical barriers that suggest the other person is not open to what you’re saying. Even if they’re smiling and engaged in a pleasant conversation, their body language tells the story. Gerard I. Nierenberg and Henry H. Calero videotaped more than 2,000 negotiations for a book they wrote on reading body language, and not a single one ended in an agreement when one of the parties had their legs crossed while negotiating. Psychologically, crossed legs or arms signal that a person is mentally, emotionally, and physically blocked off from what’s in front of them. It’s not intentional, which is why it’s so revealing.

Real smiles crinkle the eyes.
When it comes to smiling, the mouth can lie but the eyes can’t. Genuine smiles reach the eyes, crinkling the skin to create crow’s feet around them. People often smile to hide what they’re really thinking and feeling, so the next time you want to know if someone’s smile is genuine, look for crinkles at the corners of their eyes. If they aren’t there, that smile is hiding something.

Copying your body language is a good thing. Have you ever been in a meeting with someone and noticed that every time you cross or uncross your legs, they do the same? Or perhaps they lean their head the same way as yours when you’re talking? That’s actually a good sign. Mirroring body language is something we do unconsciously when we feel a bond with the other person. It’s a sign that the conversation is going well and that the other party is receptive to your message. This knowledge can be especially useful when you’re negotiating, because it shows you what the other person is really thinking about the deal.

Posture tells the story. Have you ever seen a person walk into a room, and immediately, you have known that they were the one in charge? That effect is largely about body language, and often includes an erect posture, gestures made with the palms facing down, and open and expansive gestures in general. The brain is hardwired to equate power with the amount of space people take up. Standing up straight with your shoulders back is a power position; it appears to maximize the amount of space you fill. Slouching, on the other hand, is the result of collapsing your form; it appears to take up less space and projects less power. Maintaining good posture commands respect and promotes engagement, whether you’re a leader or not.

Eyes that lie. Most of us probably grew up hearing, “Look me in the eye when you talk to me!” Our parents were operating under the assumption that it’s tough to hold someone’s gaze when you’re lying to them, and they were right to an extent. But that’s such common knowledge that people will often deliberately hold eye contact in an attempt to cover up the fact that they’re lying. The problem is that most of them overcompensate and hold eye contact to the point that it feels uncomfortable. On average, Americans hold eye contact for seven to ten seconds, longer when we’re listening than when we’re talking. If you’re talking with someone whose stare is making you squirm–especially if they’re very still and unblinking–something is up and they might be lying you.

Raised eyebrows signal discomfort.
There are three main emotions that make your eyebrows go up: surprise, worry, and fear. Try raising your eyebrows when you’re having a relaxed casual conversation with a friend. It’s hard to do, isn’t it? If somebody who is talking to you raises their eyebrows and the topic isn’t one that would logically cause surprise, worry, or fear, there is something else going on.

Exaggerated nodding signals anxiety about approval.
When you’re telling someone something and they nod excessively, this means that they are worried about what you think of them or that you doubt their ability to follow your instructions.

A clenched jaw signals stress. A clenched jaw, a tightened neck, or a furrowed brow are all signs of stress. Regardless of what the person is saying, these are signs of considerable discomfort. The conversation might be delving into something they’re anxious about, or their mind might be elsewhere and they’re focusing on the thing that’s stressing them out. The key is to watch for that mismatch between what the person says and what their tense body language is telling you.

Bringing It All Together

The bottom line is that even if you can’t read a person’s exact thoughts, you can learn a lot from their body language, and that’s especially true when words and body language don’t match.

What other body language clues do you look for? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

How the “Patch” Workout Aids in Pain Relief

By: Pete Egoscue

Watch episode six of the new video series “Becoming Pain Free,” to follow one man’s journey in eliminating chronic pain naturally with the help of the Egoscue Method.

Severe or chronic pain affects nearly 50 million American adults, reports a new study prepared by National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, which was published in The Journal of Pain last summer. About half of these people are suffering from chronic pain every single day. Steven, the subject of Sonima.com‘s new video series called “Becoming Pain Free,” is one of them.

The 34-year-old independent filmmaker and photographer, who just moved to Los Angeles with his wife, Melanie, and 5-year-old son, Victor, has been battling consistent joint pain in his legs, wrists, and lower back–a byproduct of his profession that requires holding heavy camera equipment for hours–for about nine years. It’s common for Steven to wake up with numb arms and feet and unable to walk. When doctors couldn’t help him address the pain, he turned to Pete Egoscue, Sonima.com’s pain and anatomy advisor, author of multiple books including Pain Free, and creator of the Egoscue Method, an exercise therapy program–taught at more than 25 clinics worldwide–designed to treat chronic pain without prescription painkillers or invasive surgery.

In episode six of this video series, Steven is introduced to the Egoscue “Patch” workouts, which leverage specially designed equipment to create an obstacle course of sorts. Because of the apparatus’ uneven structure, seemingly simple maneuvers over, under, and around the patch challenge the body in unique ways to help build strength, agility, and better posture. Watch as Steven attempts a patch workout for the first time and hear how it affects his body.

Friday Talking Points — Don’t Panic!

This column was written from bottom to top today. The reason we started with the end and worked our way back up is that we were inspired to go off on a rant (rather than our usual talking points for Democrats). This was due to unusually high levels of panic in the media this week (actually it’s not that rare that mainstream media panic causes us to go off on a rant, just in general). But because we started with this extended rant, we’re going to have to summarize the week in lightning fashion here in this intro, because we are way behind schedule now. So without much extraneous commentary, here are the stories we noticed during the week.

The uninsured rate has now fallen to single digits, as the second year of final stats for Obamacare are in. This means seven million more people with healthcare, in 2015 alone. The uninsured rate stands at 9.1 percent, down 2.4 points last year alone. Oh, and the sky hasn’t fallen yet, either.

One town in Mississippi’s schools have finally been desegregated — hey, what’s 50 years of waiting, right?

Speaking of long waits, President Obama has finalized new federal overtime rules (we wrote about this effort in detail last January, when the process was getting underway). By doubling the threshold for being considered a “salaried” worker, Obama’s new rule is going to boost the pay of millions of workers. Companies that put “managers” on pathetically low salaries and then work them 70 or 80 hours a week will not be able to do so any longer. They’ve either got to pay the employees time-and-a-half for any work over 40 hours, or they’ve got to hire enough people that nobody has to work 80 hours a week. Pretty simple idea. Pay people what they’re worth. Obama didn’t raise the cutoff limit as high as some Union groups wanted, but he did more than double it — from $ 23,660 a year to $ 47,476 a year. Importantly, the new law has a provision in it to adjust the level every three years, so that workers won’t have to wait decades for another change. The new rule goes into effect in December, so either a bigger paycheck or a lot of time off (for the same salary) will be Obama’s parting gift to millions of American workers.

Let’s see, what else happened? Joe Biden wrote a note to himself that was downright endearing.

There was a fracas at a political meeting last week, although not the one you think I’m talking about. Things got rather shouty on the floor of the House of Representatives, as Republicans had to hold a vote on gay rights open long enough for seven Republicans to change their vote to denying rights (after already voting for the bill). Cries of “Shame! Shame! Shame!” and “Regular order!” and booing can all be heard.

There was a lot of marijuana news, some of which we’re saving for the awards section. A new study came out showing how much revenue states ($ 20.5 billion) and the federal government ($ 8 billion) are missing out on through refusing to legalize (and tax) marijuana.

One marijuana provider is fighting back against government interference in court, which they should have every right to do.

And finally, in the “what have they been smoking” department, we have the editors of USA Today (which bills itself as “America’s Newspaper,” we might mention), who created a scary map showing (gasp!) weed is moving out of Colorado to other states. Except that they couldn’t find Colorado on the map — which showed Wyoming instead. Whoops!

 

Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week

For all the state-level progress on marijuana legal reform, the bigger battle has always been with the federal government’s outdated laws. While many large goals are still out of reach (descheduling marijuana, or outright federal legalization), smaller goals continue to be achieved.

This week, the House passed a bill that will open up the Veterans Affairs system to medical marijuana. Or at least force them to stop actively fighting against it. This is a step in the right direction. As Tom Angell, Chairman of Marijuana Majority put it:

It’s looking like this could finally be the year the federal government stops making veterans jump through costly, time-consuming hoops just to get legal access to medical marijuana. Cannabis has shown great promise in helping veterans deal with PTSD and treat chronic pain, and it’s an increasingly attractive alternative to opioids. There’s absolutely no reason the V.A. should be preventing its doctors from helping veterans who served our country find relief with medical marijuana.

The bill was introduced by a regular champion of marijuana reform in the House, Representative Earl Blumenauer. Federal law is not going to change all at once — it’s going to require a lot of patient steps like the one that just passed the House. For taking the time and effort to legislate such steps, and for getting bipartisan support for his measure, Blumenauer is easily our Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week.

[Congratulate Representative Earl Blumenauer on his House contact page, to let him know you appreciate his efforts.]

 

Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week

Ed Rendell, former governor of Pennsylvania, really stepped in it this week. When asked if Donald Trump could possibly siphon off Democratic voters given his crude comments about women, Rendell responded:

For every one [voter Trump gains] he’ll lose one-and-a-half, two Republican women. Trump’s comments like, ‘You can’t be a 10 if you’re flat-chested,’ that’ll come back to haunt him. There are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women. People take that stuff personally. He demeans women. He demeans Mexican Americans, I think women are rightfully irritated by how he talks. Plus, you don’t know where he stands. One day he’s for Planned Parenthood, the next day he’s against it.

Rendell personally wins not only a (Dis-)Honorable Mention award, but also the prize for “not recognizing irony when it comes out of your own mouth,” since he apparently didn’t link his own “ugly women” comment to his scolding Trump for demeaning women. Next time, engage brain before opening mouth!

But our Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week award goes to any supporter of Bernie Sanders who actually did engage in violence during last week’s state party convention. We’ve got a lot more to say about this, below, I should mention.

Sure, the media hyped the fight. First-hand reports didn’t sound anywhere near as bad as what happened was portrayed, in fact. But while speaking up is allowable (no matter how loud) in politics, violence is not. Chair-throwing is violence, whether it hits anyone or not. Death threats are violence. There is a bright line which has been crossed, to state the obvious.

So anyone who participated in any violence in Nevada, and certainly anyone who made threats either during or after the fracas is hereby awarded our Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week. Violence in politics is always wrong. Always. And everyone should loudly condemn it no matter who does it or for what perceived reason. Period.

 

Friday Talking Points

Volume 392 (5/20/16)

Every once in a while, instead of writing talking points, I feel the need to unleash a rant. Today is one of those times.

The past week has seen an explosion of panic in the media over Bernie Sanders and his campaign. We can probably expect a lot more of this, right up until the final primary contests early next month, in fact. So I felt it was time to offer up a countering opinion. To anyone else out there who is getting frustrated with the increasing levels of angst out there, I offer up the following advice:

 

Don’t Panic!

Can we all just take a deep breath? I’m speaking to many Democratic voters as well as the bulk of the mainstream media, here, just to clarify. Because far too many seem to currently be going off the deep end — due mostly to selective amnesia, one assumes. But from where I sit, this is an overreaction to a very short-term situation. So please, let’s just take a deep breath and try to relax a little bit. Or, as Douglas Adams would say: “Don’t panic!”

Last week there was a bit of a fracas at the Nevada Democratic state convention. Rules were bent or ignored, tempers ran high, and the outcome in question was over a grand total of two delegates to the national convention. Two. That’s it. Obviously, the entire episode was way out of proportion from the start.

Then the media jumped in, and blew things stratospherically out of proportion. Goaded by this panic-mode reaction, some prominent Democrats began saying things they really shouldn’t have. My own senator, Dianne Feinstein, wondered on camera whether the 2016 convention would resemble the riots in Chicago in 1968. Really, DiFi? You really think that’s what will happen? Because I don’t, nor should any sane person who knows a little history.

The history I’m talking about doesn’t reach back to the days of the Vietnam War, either. I’m talking about the previous contested Democratic nomination race, in fact, which happened only eight years ago. I’m beginning to get the feeling I’m one of the few who does remember what happened then, because everyone else seems to be having too much fun freaking out right now. Well, not everyone, to be fair. There are a few other sane voices crying in the wilderness, such as MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki, who recently tweeted:

Talking about the final days of the ’08 primary season with some Dems now, I’m struck by how tame it all seems. “Oh, that was nothing compared to what Sanders is doing now!” I’ll hear. But again, go back and find the commentary from Dems back then. There was a lot of panic that [Hillary Clinton] was undermining the party and doing all sorts of dark, devious things. I believe Dems now remember it as being tame because things all worked out for them. She dropped out in June, endorsed Obama and they won, then she joined the admin — no harm done. So people now remember late May ’08 very differently than they experienced it at the time. That happens a lot in life, and I think it’s very possible the same will happen with Dems when it comes to this current moment.

He is exactly right. Memories are selective because we now know the outcome — which we didn’t, at the time. Exactly eight years ago, the Democratic Party was split down the middle, and feelings ran a lot higher than anything we’ve seen this year. Don’t believe me? Do some research, if your own memories of the time has faded.

Back in 2008, the race between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama was tighter than this year’s race. Because of this, the Clinton camp was arguing very strenuously for the delegates from Michigan and Florida to be counted at the convention. But, by the rules, these delegates were disallowed. Forty-eight states followed the rules laid down by the party for the primary schedule. Two states ignored the rules, which plainly stated that any state not following the rules would not have its delegates seated at the convention. All the Democratic candidates — in deference to the party rules — refused to campaign in the two states. One candidate ignored this, however. Hillary Clinton encouraged these two states’ rulebreaking by actively campaigning (and, unsurprisingly, winning) in Florida and Michigan. With the overall race so close, these votes might have mattered, so Clinton pushed very hard for the party rules to be changed — after the fact.

Remember all that? Kind of puts Nevada squabbling over two delegates in some context, doesn’t it? As for the contentiousness and politeness of the race (now versus then), nothing that’s happened this year even comes close to how hard Barack and Hillary went after each other.

Almost to the day, exactly eight years ago Hillary Clinton made the most jaw-dropping casual reference I’ve ever heard any politician utter. Here’s the story, in case you’ve forgotten:

Smart candidates don’t invoke the possibility of their opponents being killed. This seems so obvious it shouldn’t need to be said, but apparently, it needs to be said.

“We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California,” Hillary Clinton said yesterday, referencing the fact that past nomination contests have stretched into June to explain why she hasn’t heeded calls to exit the Democratic race. She was in an editorial board meeting with a South Dakota newspaper, and she didn’t even seem to notice she’d just uttered the unutterable.

The nation’s political science students, our future strategists and campaign managers, would do well to pay attention to this moment. There are taboos in presidential politics, and this is one of the biggest. To raise the specter of a rival’s assassination, even unintentionally, is to make a truly terrible thing real. It sounds like one might be waiting for a terrible thing to happen, even if one isn’t. It sounds almost like wishful thinking.

That was on May 23, 2008. Clinton was also speaking out about the Michigan and Florida fight, comparing it to fraudulent elections in Zimbabwe, the recount of the 2000 election, and even “the abolition of slavery.” Hillary Clinton campaigned to the very end — and even beyond. When the votes were counted in the final primary, Clinton gave a speech and refused to concede the race to Barack Obama. From that speech:

Now, the question is: Where do we go from here? And given how far we’ve come and where we need to go as a party, it’s a question I don’t take lightly. This has been a long campaign, and I will be making no decisions tonight.

She then went on to invite her supporters to “share their thoughts” at her campaign website, and to state that she would be in consultations “to determine how to move forward.” This was after the last vote had been counted, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that she had lost the race. But she still had a plan for convincing a bunch of superdelegates to switch their support to her.

In fact, it took four days — and a face-to-face meeting with Obama arranged by Dianne Feinstein — before Clinton would concede she had lost.

That’s where we all were, eight years ago.

Clinton supporters were even more fervent back then than the so-called “Bernie Bros” of today. Salon helpfully points this out (with links for all their points):

Back in 2008, we had Hillary Clinton supporters musing openly about Obama being a drug dealer, and her chief strategist went on TV and deliberately said “cocaine” as many times as he could in relation to Obama (who wrote in his memoir about blowing coke as a college student). Clinton herself aimed barbed personal attacks at Obama, calling him a vacant naïf who couldn’t do anything beyond give a good speech. There were racially fraught swipes, scornful dismissals, and utterly bizarre insinuations that the race could be upended by anything, including an assassination. After Clinton conceded defeat, we had to tolerate the PUMAs — remember those assholes? — who made “Party Unity My Ass” their mantra and got a lot of media attention (primarily from Fox News) for employing incoherent racism as their chief weapon in a deluded quest to keep alive the Hillary-Obama division and make John McCain president.

Remember all that? I do. Which is why I’m not panicking now. Things worked out back then, and they are very likely going to work out now. For all the frenzied calls for Bernie Sanders to get out of the race, stop campaigning so hard, stop hitting Hillary, stop fighting for delegates, and to condemn the violence in Nevada for the umpteenth time, what is most likely is that the period from now until the final primary will not even be remembered by anyone this November. The party is not about to engage in civil war. Don’t listen to the idiots in the media who are predicting this (or 1968 happening again, for that matter). They’re going to be wrong.

Just reading the headlines in the Washington Post of late, you’d think Bernie Sanders was singlehandedly destroying the Democratic Party. After Nevada, Bernie put out a public statement which clearly showed his feelings towards what had happened (emphasis added, because apparently some people didn’t read this part):

Within the last few days there have been a number of criticisms made against my campaign organization. Party leaders in Nevada, for example, claim that the Sanders campaign has a “penchant for violence.” That is nonsense. Our campaign has held giant rallies all across this country, including in high-crime areas, and there have been zero reports of violence. Our campaign of course believes in non-violent change and it goes without saying that I condemn any and all forms of violence, including the personal harassment of individuals. But, when we speak of violence, I should add here that months ago, during the Nevada campaign, shots were fired into my campaign office in Nevada and apartment housing complex my campaign staff lived in was broken into and ransacked.

The Post ran this under the apocalyptic headline: “This Bernie Sanders Statement On The Nevada Convention Reads Like An Open Threat To The Democratic Establishment.” There were zero threats in Bernie’s statement. Zero. He didn’t even mention the national convention, and yet soon most in the media were spinning it as: “Bernie’s threatening violence in Philadelphia.” Poppycock. Read the whole statement yourself, and see if anything in it even remotely constitutes any such “threat.”

Bernie’s statement wasn’t enough for many in the media and in the Democratic Party. He was told he had to denounce the violence stronger and more unequivocally. He then began doing so, any time a television camera was on him. That’s really the sum total of the story — “Bernie denounces supporters’ violence” — but you wouldn’t have known that from the panicky coverage all week long.

The Washington Post has, for months, pretty obviously been in the tank for Hillary Clinton. Back in early March, it was even pointed out that they ran 16 negative stories about Bernie Sanders in the space of 16 hours. But occasionally, you do hear some actual facts from someone at the Post, as in today’s story comparing 2008 to 2016. Facts and figures plainly show that the Democratic Party is a lot more unified now than it was back then. The most striking data point comes from a comparison over the polled question: “Does a long primary race help or hurt the Democratic nominee?” In 2008, only 38 percent thought a tough race “helps the nominee,” while a whopping 54 percent said it “hurts the nominee.” And now? The numbers are reversed. Only 34 percent think a long race hurts the nominee, while 59 percent say it helps.

That really puts things in perspective. No matter what the media mavens think, Democratic voters are just fine with Bernie staying in the race until the end. Just like Hillary Clinton did back in 2008. Doing so will toughen Clinton up and put her in fighting form to face off against Donald Trump — just like it sharpened Barack Obama up in 2008.

Bernie Sanders is going to lose the nomination race. I say this while fully intending to proudly cast my own primary vote for Sanders in a few weeks, I should point out. But he has certainly earned the right to stay in until California and New Jersey get a chance to vote. He is not some gadfly who won a single state or maybe two. He has run a campaign that has surprised everyone — including him. He got farther than anyone expected, and tapped into an astonishing amount of discontent with the status quo. He deserves to have a lot of input in writing the party’s platform this year, and hopefully his movement won’t fizzle out after Clinton locks the nomination up. But he’s far from being Ralph Nader or anything. Voting for John McCain seemed semi-reasonable for Clinton supporters angry with Barack Obama in 2008, but my guess is that voting for Donald Trump is just not going to be a conceivable option for the vast majority of Sanders supporters.

So my advice to Democrats is to just flat-out ignore the pearl-clutching frenzy in the media for the next few weeks. Primary season is almost over, and all of this will soon be forgotten. It will likely make not a dime’s worth of difference if Bernie quit the race tomorrow versus staying in until the final votes are counted. The end result is going to be the same. My guess is that Bernie will accept defeat more graciously than Clinton did back in 2008, in fact. I bet he’ll concede long before she did, back then. And I bet he won’t demand a face-to-face meeting before he does so, too.

The Democratic Party is going to unite. Oh, sure, some disenchanted Bernie voters will either refuse to vote in November or vote for the Green Party (or maybe even write in Bernie’s name). The majority of Bernie voters, however, will go through a period of disappointment and then realize that “President Trump” is so horrifying a concept that they’ll vote for Hillary anyway (while holding their nose or not). Feelings always run high at the end of a close race. Tempers flare. But it’s 2016, not a re-run of 1968 (sorry, DiFi). Heck, it’s not even a re-run of 2008.

It’ll all be over soon. Until then, keep calm. Don’t panic.

WATCH: Don’t Stand Out (Don’t be a show-off)

Too many people don’t allow themselves to make the difference they can make – or enjoy all that they could – because they’ve been programmed to play small. If you are one of those people… please knock it off. 😉

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 Global Health Care Crisis No One Is Talking About

On a blistery cold day in December, I sat in a corner office on one end of a beautiful, large oak desk fidgeting in my interview suit. The man stationed at the opposing end leaned back in his leather recliner and scoffed at my previous statement.
 
“You want to do surgery in developing countries? Surgery has no place in global health,” he said. “Leave that to the medical doctors.”
 
My heart sank. The sad truth is that he is not alone in his sentiment. Most people today think about global health in a restricted and one-dimensional perspective that focuses only on communicable diseases and basic health needs. It is true there are horrible diseases plaguing the world, both insect and water-borne. However, attention to these alone creates an inaccurate representation of the global health care landscape–a misperception that permeates not just in popular media but amongst health care professionals as well.
 
In the past few years, a growing body of evidence has emerged bringing to light a significant disparity that exists in the delivery of health care to foreign countries: There are 5 billion people worldwide who do not have access to much-needed safe and affordable surgical and anesthesia services. Further, 18.6 million people die every year due to lack of surgical care, a number that is over three times the combined number of deaths caused by HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. In 2015, the United States spent over 60% of its global health fund on these three diseases, despite the fact that their death and infection rates have plummeted globally.

In a recent article in BMJ Global Health, a team of medical providers and experts from leading institutions around the world summarized current data on global surgery and provided consensus recommendations for high-income countries. They report that there needs to be at least 1.27 million new surgeons, anesthesiologists, and obstetricians worldwide by 2030 to reach conservative health-needs benchmarks.

To achieve these goals, these experts encourage the development of complex and long-term relationships with academic training institutions and partner organizations abroad. To allow surgeons in high-income countries to participate in global surgery, there needs to be a foundation already in place for the flow of funding and volunteerism. Establishing such a structure would not only improve the standards for training but also the number of trainees, and it would promote the retention of local providers in lower-income nations as well–many of whom leave for wealthier countries once they have completed their training.
 
But the burden of responsibility does not just rest with physicians. Investors are tasked with recognizing the cost effectiveness of surgical-care funding and supporting focused and well-informed efforts. Biomedical engineers and those in the tech industry can help by designing and manufacturing equipment from local resources that is tailored to the specific needs of a targeted region so as to avoid “dumping used or outdated devices.” Additionally, the media has a responsibility to cover more international health-care-related issues and journalists need to become advocates of much-needed change on the global scene.
 
More than one-third of the world’s global burden of disease can be ameliorated with access to surgical care. While this statistic is overwhelming, it is possible to achieve with concerted planning and efforts. Thinking back on that moment in the corner office made me realize the first step to reach these important goals is for the public to recognize that this need exists. The paradigm of global health care must be radically dismantled in order for change to even begin.

Elizabeth Warren To Donald Trump: I’m Right, You’re Wrong

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Thursday night resumed her stream of disdainful tweets directed at presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Warren, a fierce defender of the middle class, sent several tweets attacking Trump’s meandering statements surrounding the federal minimum wage, and linked to a new PolitiFact article that calls a Trump claim “mostly false.” The article examines Trump’s back-and-forth opinions on the minimum wage and his assertion that Warren lied when she said he wanted to abolish it. 

Trump, in fact, has called for the end of a federal minimum, telling NBC’s Chuck Todd this month that states should decide a minimum wage, not the federal government. That position, as well as Trump’s claim that wages are “too high,” make clear “why working [people] can’t make him the boss,” Warren tweeted.

Warren took to Twitter several times last week, seemingly unprompted, to chastise Trump’s “dangerous” and “reckless” policy proposals, and his sexist treatment of women. She called out Trump’s stances on student loan debt, financial industry regulation and Trump University.

Trump, in true Trump fashion, proceeded to mock Warren. He called her “Goofy Elizabeth Warren” and “one of the least effective senators” in history.

Warren’s comments have drawn the attention of the Hillary Clinton campaign, including some who advocate Warren as a potential vice presidential running mate, according to a report from HuffPost’s Sam Stein and Ryan Grim. Clinton and her aides were “thrilled to see Warren get under his skin,” according to the report.

Warren ended her latest tweetstorm assuring Trump that his tirades wouldn’t escape the notice of America’s working class.

“News flash, Donald: working [people] are smarter than you think.”

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.

http://www.acrx.org -As millions of Americans strive to deal with the economic downturn,loss of jobs,foreclosures,high cost of gas,and the rising cost of prescription drug cost. Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

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

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

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs. They also possess no eligibility requirements, no forms to fill out, or expiration date as well .One card will take care of a whole family. Also note that the ACRX cards will come to your organization already pre-activated .The cards are good at over 50k stores from Walgreen, Wal mart, Eckerd”s, Kmart, Kroger, Publix, and many more. Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

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

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

ADVICE 19: On Regret

*****

Should I have broken up with my long-term boyfriend?
–Mcneal52; Portland, OR

I don’t ask for much. For anyone sending in a question, the short Google form that’s linked that the top of every column consists of three fields, two of which only require that you remember your name and where you’re from.

It’s that third field that demands a little more — your question, and any context that will help me give an appropriate answer.

Mcneal52, where’s the context?

Outside of living in Portland, I don’t know anything about you or your former boyfriend. I don’t know how long you were together, what type of relationship you had or what brought it to an end. This makes things a little more difficult.

That said, based on the fact that you sent in this submission, I can deduce that you are dealing with regret — either the reality of it now, or the possibility of it later.

Regret is actually something I’ve been thinking about. When I was younger, contemplating my future was like playing the school bus game MASH. Where was I going to live? What’s my job going to be? Who would I marry? Would I drive a Porsche, or would my nine kids grow up in a shack? My life was a de facto math equation, and I was intrigued/curious/terrified to learn the value(s) of “X.”

Well, I’m 38 now, and a lot more of those values have been determined. My wife, for instance, is exactly who I’d always hoped she’d be — and so much more in other ways I never could have imagined.

But in other facets of my life, be it my personal growth or my professional progression, my path is littered with regrets. This isn’t a woe-is-me grievance — I lead about as blessed an existence as possible — just an honest self-evaluation.

There are things I wish I had done differently. There are risks I wish I’d taken, decisions I wish I could have back, do-overs I wish would be granted.

These realities are a tough pill to swallow, and I’m not sure how to live with them without feeling that, to some degree, I’m living a second-place life, a life that’s less than the one I was supposed to have. And I don’t know how to change that.

I’ve never understood how there are people who have no regrets, just like I’ve never understood how there are people who have no fear. Aren’t these inevitabilities of being human, like breathing or being critical/secretly jealous of the Kardashians?

The more I’ve thought about it, though, the more I’ve realized there’s a difference between having regret and living with it.

We all have regrets. We all have regretted that we turned left instead of right, or that we ordered salad instead of steak, or that we couldn’t come up with that perfect comeback before our adversary went to work for Firestone. These disappointments are unavoidable.

But when we can’t shake them, when we can’t let them go, that’s when we end up living with them. And that’s when we run into problems.

That’s been my issue. I live with my regrets. They’re this baggage I carry around, a referendum on all I’ve done wrong, a reminder that I’m not everything I could or should be.

I try countering with cliches — you can’t change the past; what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger; everything happens for a reason; you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be; you did the best you could — but they ring hollow, unable to overcome the alternative tales that I’ve convinced myself are the truth.

The only way to avoid living with regret, I’m convinced, is to fully process the situation that inspired it. You have to sort through it and learn from it, so you can ultimately be at peace with it.

How do you do that? Good question. Clearly I haven’t figured it out for myself. But I think the process is similar to cleaning out your closet, where you evaluate each item to decide if it should stay or go.

Do I want to hold onto this? Is it worth making room for in my life? Is there more it can give me, or have I gotten everything out of it that I could? Will I regret giving this up, or is it time to move on?

So Mcneal52 of Portland, I’m going to turn the tables on you…

When you consider your conundrum within the above context, what do you think? Should you have broken up with your long-term boyfriend, or should you try to get him back?

This Partnership Marks A Big Step In The Fight Against Obesity

If you read the headlines, you are keenly aware that we are in the midst of a serious obesity problem. Seventeen percent of children and 35 percent of adults in the United States are obese. In addition to the impact obesity has on individuals and their daily lives, it exacts a crippling toll on the health care system, with the treatment of obesity and obesity-related diseases costing more than $ 147 billion each year.

There are a lot of good ideas when it comes to solving obesity. First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative, which focuses on raising the consciousness of children and their families around eating a balanced diet and being more physically active, is a positive approach that has captured the imagination of millions of American families. Unfortunately, there have been a lot of bad ideas as well that promote a single panacea or silver bullet solution to solve the obesity epidemic.

From our vantage points — as a healthy-weight advocate within the food industry and an expert in public health respectively — we see obesity as a complex problem that requires a comprehensive solution. No single person, sector, organization or government agency can solve this problem alone. However, when people and organizations with disparate views come together to investigate new ideas and develop new ways of thinking, the results can be very powerful.

For instance, the food and beverage industry is playing an important role in developing and implementing programs that help people eat better and move more. Food and beverage companies are reformulating their products to remove calories, sugar, fat and sodium, which is no easy task and requires many technological innovations to maintain the quality and palatability that consumers expect from foods they buy. They are investing in educational programs for school children that help them learn to make healthy decisions that develop into healthy habits for a lifetime. They are using advertising to promote healthier products and change social norms about health on children’s television shows. And beverage vending machines serving elementary, middle and high schools have been put on a strict diet: suppliers voluntarily swapped out sodas for zero- or low-calorie drinks and bottled water, leading to a 90 percent reduction in beverage calories.

Of course, there is no doubt that some stakeholders are skeptical of industry efforts when it comes to obesity. So, the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation (HWCF), a not-for-profit organization founded by food and beverage companies and dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles, recently partnered with the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy to create the Commitment to Healthy Communities (CHC) initiative. CHC evaluates corporate-community investment in healthful eating and active living programs and catalyzes multi-sector action toward collective impact on community health.

The goal is not simply to judge the merits of corporate strategies; the CHC uses its research to promote what works and develop new strategies to replace the ones that don’t. An independent panel of experts oversaw the development of CHC’s framework for evaluating company strategies and programs that promote healthy lifestyles in communities across the country. Some of the world’s largest and most recognized food companies are participating, including General Mills, the Kellogg Company, PepsiCo, The Coca-Cola Company, Nestlé, The J.M. Smucker Company, Campbell Soup Company and others. The results of the project’s year one assessment have been compiled; they show not only progress and promise, but the need for continued work.

That is why CHC is a multi-year effort. As a next step, CUNY and HWCF are developing metrics and insights that companies can use to boost the impact of their community health and wellness programs. Meanwhile, we’re spreading awareness about the most effective programs so other stakeholders in the private sector can replicate those success stories, or add to their momentum by joining existing causes.

The CHC is a novel approach designed to cohere the strengths of the public sector (including academia) and the private sector in pursuit of a common goal — reducing the prevalence of childhood obesity within a generation. The private sector is a powerful lever in the battle against obesity, but that power needs to be directed in meaningful and impactful ways. The public sector’s power is limited when it comes to improving the nutritional quality of the food supply and connecting with American consumers, but it can bring its expertise to bear to ensure private sector investment — from developing more healthful products to adopting more responsible marketing practices — is meaningful and transparent.

The collaboration the CHC and HWCF has fostered may prove to be a roadmap for future public–private cooperation in facing down major public health challenges, now and in the future. After all, when diverse sectors across the public-private divide join forces, we have a much better chance of success.

The Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation is a broad-based, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to help reduce obesity, especially childhood obesity, by encouraging positive and permanent lifestyle changes among school-aged children and their families.

    �Schools of Tomorrow�, Schools of Today: What Happened to Progressive Education (History of Schools and Schooling, V. 8)


    �Schools of Tomorrow,� Schools of Today documents some of the child-centered progressive schools founded in the first half of the twentieth century and provides histories of some more contemporary examples of progressive practices. Part I discusses seven progressive schools founded in the first part of the twentieth century (Francis W. Parker; Organic; Park; City and Country; Lincoln; Dalton; Arthurdale), tracing them from their beginnings to the present, or until their regrettable demises. Part II examines four more contemporary schools (Butterfield; Free Union Country; Urban Academy; W. Haywood Burns), showing how progressive practices gained momentum from the 1960s onward. As a volume in the History of Schools and Schooling series, this book seeks to look to the past for what it can teach us today. The lessons from the past about what has happened to progressive education hopefully will inform contemporary debates.

    Real Crimes Against Nature: N.C. Republicans Attack Renewable Energy

    2016-05-19-1463632595-4213129-Solar.JPG
    Pat McCrory and Republicans in the North Carolina legislature claim to abhor the unnatural. Thus, they passed HB 2 ostensibly to prevent a crisis that they fabricated about straight men putting on dresses to peep at women in restrooms. (However, as I have noted elsewhere, this bill is really more about taking away workers’ rights. See here.) But when it comes to real crimes against nature, at least some of these Republicans take a different tune. As more particularly described here, Two North Carolina Republicans have introduced legislation taking on renewable energy in the state. This is not only mind boggling in light of the common-sense future choices we must make about energy consumption and availability. It is bizarre coming from people who claim to know and defend the “natural.” Where is the defense of the natural here? The sun rises in its natural place and freely and cleanly offers up it natural energy. The wind blows naturally, too, and also freely and cleanly offers up its natural energy. By contrast, coal, petroleum, and uranium are unnaturally ripped or fracked from beneath the ground or waters leaving the environment in a mutilated and unnatural state. Let’s call out the true “perverts” here.

    To Torch or Not to Torch? 5 Ways to Deal With Mementos Post-Break Up

    2016-05-18-1463605473-8591673-shutterstock_1373627961.jpg

    The relationship ended. You never imagined that you would be here. You stand in your place full of memories, looking at all the little reminders of the person with whom you thought you had a promising future. What do you do with the mementos, the gifts, the personal things that are left behind?

    At Relationup, an app that provides 24/7 live relationship advice from professionals via chat, we were curious about how people handled the keepsakes they accumulated during their relationships after they had fizzled. We conducted a survey and discovered that 56% of people (70% women; 33% men) kept mementos from a past relationship(s).

    Our data also revealed that there were 5 common ways people dealt with their keepsakes in the aftermath of their relationship.

    They held onto a few unique gifts they loved. This group described keeping unique items (e.g. jewelry, vintage jazz shirt, sweatshirts, teddy bear) because they loved them and didn’t want to part with them–regardless of who gave it to them or the circumstances surrounding the ending of the relationship. One man commented, “I loved that t-shirt so much that there was no way that I was going to throw it out”.

    They kept things about which they were sentimental.
    This group hung onto items (e.g. plush dog, ticket stubs, airline boarding pass, mementos from travel) because they represented meaningful and significant experiences. Some kept things that represented the relationship (“my first love,” “the first time time my heart was broken,” “the first time that I felt that someone was really paying attention to me”), while others kept things that related to an event/experience (“the first time I went to Europe,” “my first concert,” “being at Coachella”).

    They kept everything and boxed it up. This group liked to avoid facing their feelings by packing up everything to deal with later. In the majority of scenarios, this was motivated by painful endings and people wanted to wait until they felt emotionally ready to do a post-mortem on the relationship. One woman commented, “I just couldn’t look at anything to do with him for months.”

    They threw everything out. This group preferred to pitch everything, regardless of whether they ended the relationship, or were sad about the ending. They wanted to disconnect, compartmentalize and put the past behind them. One man called it the “get rid of it all and move on” technique.

    They got rid of everything but engaged in a cleansing ritual by dramatically discarding a few items. This group acted out their pain by engaging in a behavior that felt empowering. This strategy was highly correlated to feeling “used/betrayed/abused/ manipulated” in the relationship. People often chose to engage in an experience that purged the negative break-up energy. Some of the women described lighting fires, cutting things up, dropping items off cliffs and buildings, and burning objects and spreading the ashes.

    Endings are complicated. It is difficult to deal with why something that once felt so good went south. But when you are faced with this circumstance, you will figure out what is the best way to handle all the mementos that you accumulated during the relationship and decide whether you want to do a box run to a packing company, give your local Goodwill donation center a visit, or create a bonfire and torch a few things. As long as your destruction is reserved solely for inanimate objects and won’t cause any physical harm, you’ve got nothing to worry about.

    CARA Becoming Law Proves Our Astonishing Potential

    Like many physicians, the opioid overdose epidemic has become personal to me. As a cardiothoracic surgeon I have prescribed opioids for 25 years to help my patients manage their post surgical pain. These medications are invaluable, but they have a much darker side than I ever imagined and we are seeing it very clearly now.

    Drug overdose is now the number one cause of accidental deaths–more people die from drug overdoses than die in automobile accidents, falls, or guns. We have two million addicted souls who generate 1000 ER admissions and 80 deaths every day.
    Addiction can no longer go unnoticed–there are few of us who have not been touched by it in someway. In fact, in a recent survey by Morning Consult, about two-thirds of voters said the problems of prescription drug and heroin abuses are very serious.

    We also survey our audience to assess their interests, and mental health has become their dominant request, in part because of its dangerous cousin, addiction. Each weekday, viewers around the country allow us the very special privilege of entering their homes to share our knowledge on how to improve health and happiness. Over the last year, we have devoted a substantial amount of time to covering the crisis. More than any season before, we have seen people responding through comments, social media, email, even public gatherings. And amidst that feedback, there have been letters of gratitude, hope and support. Many of the stories had happy endings; others were tragic. If we teach people a pathway to recovery and we support families and individuals who are wrestling with the deadly dance of addiction, they CAN and WILL get better. I have seen first hand that recovery is real.

    Both on and off our stage, my team and I have done our homework on this topic. We’ve talked with the biggest leaders in the country as well countless people in recovery. We’ve also met with folks out in the community who are dealing with the challenges of getting treatment for addiction. I’ve learned that getting help conceptually should be straight forward, but in reality there are many seemingly insurmountable barriers for people with the brain disease of addiction.

    This is why I am spending today in the U.S. Capitol at the launch of the Coalition to Stop Opioid Overdose. When I last came to Capital Hill this past October. We participated in the UNITE to Face Addiction rally – a huge, historic concert on the Mall. I heard from many families that their loved ones could not get help or enter rehab. The carried pictures of those they had lost, happy faces of lives cut short adorned T shirts. People told me they were not being offered medications like buprenorphine, naltrexone that work to reduce addiction cravings while others long for access to naloxone – an emergency countermeasure that pulls addicts back from the brink of overdose deaths. A month later, we learned from the NIH that 75% of people with drug-use disorders never receive any treatment.

    Part of the problem is that until now, our nation has had no unified national approach to dealing with the crisis. But we are on the brink of major change. So here is where we are:
    • Congress, the Administration, CDC and FDA have taken important initial steps to combat this epidemic.

    • Last week, the House passed an omnibus of 18 bills related to opioids, and the Senate approved the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery bill in March.
    • Now the real work will take place – the bills will need to be reconciled in a conference committee and the Senate and House now must merge their CARA bills into one.
    • We are here today to ask Congress to appropriate enough money to fully fund the legislation. WE ARE SO CLOSE!!

    We have even seen something many thought would never be possible again–strong bipartisan support for a bill in Congress. I’m talking about the 94 to 1 passage of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act in the Senate and the more recent 400 to 5 passage of the 18 bill omnibus version in the House. It’s proof that when faced with a tough problem, our humanity and the resolve that brought us to serve can be strong, decisive, expedient and we can emerge with a plan.

    But we are not done yet. We must reconcile the bills and make sure that we have adequate funding to support prevention and treatment. We must ensure that doctors who treat addiction can treat as many patients as they come to them and we must help make it easy for patients to find treatment. We must also make sure we fund school and community organizations to create an environment where recovery can happen.

    My colleagues and I have spent our careers fixing, coaxing, nurturing, nudging, and in some cases, forcing hearts to keep beating when they couldn’t keep beating on their own. We need to do the same with the hearts of all those suffering from opioid addiction – coax, nudge, cheer, nurture, study, fund, and show we care until they can beat on their own, free from the deadly grip of opioid cravings.

    There are a lot of theories and analysis on how the crisis got to this point – that is an academic conversation for another venue and would be a distraction here from what we are called to do. Today is about action. CARA’s passage into law represents Congress and our nation at its best. Bipartisan. Analytical. Idealistic. Compassionate. Yes, we can still be all those things here in America.

    Oregon’s Democratic Primary Voters Push Bernie Sanders To Victory

    Bernie Sanders won Oregon’s Democratic presidential primary on Tuesday, demonstrating once again that his campaign will continue to win states even as his path to the nomination narrows.

    Oregon was the first state in the nation to pass a law to automatically register voters who visit the DMV to obtain or renew a driver’s license. Political observers had questioned whether this process would hurt the independent senator from Vermont’s chances, since Oregon’s Democratic primary is closed to unaffiliated voters. Voters registered through the automatic registration process are registered as unaffiliated voters unless they send a postcard back to the state opting to be registered as Democrats or with another party. Sanders has struggled in states with closed primaries.

    But Sanders ultimately prevailed in the state, which sends 61 pledged delegates to the Democratic convention this summer. It’s the first time Sanders has won a primary closed to unaffiliated voters.

    Sanders had repeatedly visited Oregon to boost his chances there. He held rallies all over the state — in Portland, Springfield, Salem and elsewhere — out-campaigning former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whose campaign focused more on Kentucky, which also held its presidential primary Tuesday.  

    Oregon demographically resembles its neighbor Washington state, where Sanders won the caucus in March, in that it has only a small share of voters who aren’t white. Clinton has tended to beat Sanders in states with a much higher share of black and Latino voters.

    Sanders had projected confidence about his prospects in Oregon, but encouraged voters to return their ballots. Oregon holds a primary conducted entirely by mail; voters have the option of either mailing their ballots back to the state’s elections office or dropping them off at designated ballot-return boxes.

    “I am one of the most progressive members of the United States Senate and Oregon is one of the most progressive states,” Sanders told Portland’s KPTV-TV during an interview Sunday. “We think we are going to win in Oregon and it will be a very big victory if the voter turnout is high and people bring in their ballots.”

    Clinton will maintain a significant lead in delegates, even with the Oregon loss. Heading into the state’s primary, she had 1,716 pledged delegates, to Sanders’ 1,433. (Clinton’s lead increases if superdelegates are taken into account. If they are, she had a lead of 2,240 to 1,473 before the Oregon and Kentucky contests.)

    Sanders’ campaign has said that neither candidate will arrive at the convention with a majority of pledged delegates and that his campaign could still convince superdelegates siding with Clinton to switch their allegiances. He has argued that he would be the best candidate to take on the GOP’s presumptive nominee, Donald Trump, and that superdelegates would change their minds about Clinton if they only paid attention to general election polling showing Sanders performing better against Trump.

    The end of the primary is approaching, so Sanders has limited opportunities to make up his delegate deficit. California, New Jersey, North and South Dakota, the District of Columbia, New Mexico and Montana hold the nation’s last Democratic contests in June.

    ‘I’ll Be Realistic About My Contribution’

    Last week I had the privilege of speaking to the San Diego-based Alliance for Regional Solutions on self-care. As part of my prep, I asked my friend Roxanne what she’ll do differently when she’s called back to her job at the children’s hospital. Roxanne is a teacher. I was so moved by what she wrote, I shared it with the group.

    And now with Roxy’s permission, I get to share it with you. Whatever your role — whether you’re an accountant or magician, student or CEO, stay-at-home mom or an all-too-busy retiree — I encourage you to read these next three paragraphs out loud; slowly, thoughtfully, and without distraction:

    I’ll take much better care of myself. Skipping lunch, eating at my desk, going in early to get a jump start or staying a little late to wrap up will be exceptions, not standard practice. My mental, physical, and spiritual health will be a high priority because I finally realize how detrimental my daily practices were to my overall ability to thrive at work and home.

    I’ll be realistic about my contribution. I’m guilty of pouring so much into my work, loving what I have the privilege of doing, but developing a false sense that only I can do the job and without my contribution the office/department/institution would collapse. The reality is that no matter how outstanding my work, business can and will go on without me. I’ll continue to give my best, but I’ll do so with an extra measure of humility.

    I’ll be more forgiving. This period of extended unemployment has reminded me that every person I encounter is dealing with life’s challenges. I’m determined to extend grace in circumstances that would have irritated me before (shout out to you, perpetually cranky cafeteria lady). We are all doing the best we can and most of us try very hard to hide our struggles. Being quick to forgive and even quicker to extend grace will serve us all well.

    How are you needing to take better care of yourself? As I told the group last week, self-care is not a luxury — it’s an absolute necessity, one that sustains you and every other relationship you have. In the memorable words of Jim Rohn, “I’ll take care of me for you, if you will please take care of you for me.”

    Do whatever it takes.

    How Drowsy Driving Changed My Life…

    It’s hard to explain how it feels to suddenly lose a family member at a young age. My brother Jim was energetic, fun, loved school, and had lots of friends. Jim drove regularly just as many of us do, careful to wear seatbelts, avoid speeding, using mirrors to check other nearby drivers, etc. On a Monday night after the week-end of the fall clock change, Jim was driving from Washington, D.C. back to his law school in North Carolina by himself, a journey of about six hours, but he never made it. In all appearances, he fell asleep driving, and his car swerved to the opposite lane and collided with a Greyhound bus. What happened to him could have happened to any of us who drive. Studies of fall asleep auto crashes have found that young male drivers (ages 16-25), are at a greater risk of falling asleep at the wheel. Furthermore, research has shown an increase in deadly auto crashes in the days following the clock change for Daylight Savings Time. Historically, estimates of sleep-related car crashes have likely been gross underestimates. In recent years, data on sleep-related auto crashes have greatly improved. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration now estimates that up to 6,000 fatal crashes each year may be caused by drowsy drivers. The National Sleep Foundation (drowsydriving.org) recommends the following: (1) get off the road if you notice any of the warning signs of fatigue, (2) take a nap – find a safe place to take a 15 to 20-minute nap, (3) consume caffeine – the equivalent of 2 cups of coffee can increase alertness for several hours, but DO NOT rely on it for long periods, (4) drive with a friend. A passenger who remains awake can help watch for signs of fatigue in the driver and can take a turn driving, if necessary. Finally, always wear your seatbelt. Marian Berkowitz founded the Jim Berkowitz Driving Safety Fund in 2012 and has been working with injury prevention experts in Massachusetts to increase public awareness about the hazards of drowsy driving.

    Girls Understand Technology Better Than Boys On This Test

    There’s a dearth of female employees at tech companies, but that doesn’t mean girls don’t have the skills or knowledge to succeed in that field.

    New results from the National Assessment for Educational Progress — also known as the Nation’s Report Card — show that eighth-grade girls are, on the whole, outperforming boys in measures of technology and engineering literacy. The exam was administered in 2014 and represents the first time NAEP has tested students on these topics. 

    Over 20,000 eighth-graders in private and public schools across the country used computers to take the test, which focused on three content areas: technology and society, design and systems, and information and communication technology. Students were asked to solve problems about real-world scenarios using an interactive, multimedia format. 

    Overall, 43 percent of eighth-grade students are proficient in technology and engineering literacy, according to the NAEP results. But some groups are performing much better than others. The test revealed a number of gaps in student scores based on sex, where students are from, their racial backgrounds and their families’ income levels.

    Overall, 45 percent of girls proved proficient in technology and engineering literacy, compared to 42 percent of boys. This is particularly surprising, according to Peggy Carr, the acting commissioner of the National Center for Education Statistics. Girls do not typically outperform boys on measures of math and science — two subjects that require skills also used in technology and engineering fields, Carr said. This gender gap was especially pronounced for white and black girls, while Hispanic and Asian-American girls performed on par with their male counterparts. 

    “We did not expect this pattern, and the pattern does seem to be pretty clear from the data overall,” Carr told reporters. “It looks like girls have the ability and critical thinking skills to succeed in fields of technology and engineering, and that is worth noting.”

    Girls have the ability and critical thinking skills to succeed in fields of technology and engineering.
    Peggy Carr, National Center for Education Statistics

    Carr hypothesized that these gaps might exist because parts of the test emphasized collaboration or communication, skills that could favor female students. Still, girls also performed well in other sections of the test.

    More affluent students performed substantially better than their poorer counterparts, with only 25 percent of lower-income students scoring at or above the proficient level, compared to 59 percent of wealthier students. Only 18 percent of black students and 28 percent of Hispanic students achieved proficient scores or higher, compared to 56 percent of Asian-American and white students.

    In a questionnaire associated with the exam, students indicated that they had gained a number of technology and engineering skills outside the classroom. Just over half of students said they took a class in school related to technology or engineering. Sixty-three percent of students said they picked up some of these skills from family members.

    “The scores clearly show that when students have opportunities to engage with technology and engineering, they become fluent in the skills that prepare them for living and working in the modern world. But access to these opportunities from place to place is patchy,” Tonya Matthews, president and CEO of the Michigan Science Center, said in a press release.

    http://www.acrx.org -As millions of Americans strive to deal with the economic downturn,loss of jobs,foreclosures,high cost of gas,and the rising cost of prescription drug cost. Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

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

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

    The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs. They also possess no eligibility requirements, no forms to fill out, or expiration date as well .One card will take care of a whole family. Also note that the ACRX cards will come to your organization already pre-activated .The cards are good at over 50k stores from Walgreen, Wal mart, Eckerd”s, Kmart, Kroger, Publix, and many more. 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. Please include name (if organization please include organization and contact name),mailing address,designate Spanish or English,amount of cards requested,and telephone number.

    American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

    I Love to Watch People Lose

    It’s true. I love to watch people lose.

    I love watching people lose weight, lose bad relationships, lose limiting belief systems, lose debt. One of the things I think I find most beautiful about humans is our ability to decide to make changes for our own betterment.

    Let’s talk for a second about how hard that is. Seriously, can we admit that this is hard?

    Large sections of book stores, grocery stores, gyms, banks, counselors’ offices and the interwebs are filled with advice, food, books, equipment, techniques, therapies, supplements, processes, and programs all designed to help us lose things that are no longer serving us. I love these tools and by and large think many of them really will be effective for their intended purpose. They only work, however, if we do.

    And the work is so hard.

    This is where we run into trouble. We’re oftentimes led to believe that change is simple and quick. “With These 10 Easy Steps” or “In Only Five Days” you can make life-altering changes to your behavior patterns and thought processes you’ve spent an entire lifetime creating?

    I doubt it.

    I’m honestly trying to be encouraging, I am. But we can’t approach lifelong habits and mindsets with the idea that we’ll undo them in a few short days or weeks. There are thought patterns that deeply embed themselves into our psyche, and we are literally wired to do the things that we do. That wiring can take some time to re-wire.

    The good news is that it’s soft-wired. We’re only hard-wired to do things like breathe, pump blood through our veins, heat and cool our bodies, and run from predators. We don’t really need to give any thought to that. What we do need to think about are the things we can control, like our self-talk.

    Self-talk is one of my favorite topics of all time. I’ve probably read enough books on this topic to be an expert, but I am seriously not great at putting it into practice regularly (that statement, by the way, is an excellent example of how much work I still have to do). Over the weekend, I took a class on nutrition, and one of the things they brought up, not surprisingly, was mindset and how we speak to ourselves. This is because it’s a key component to any change we’re trying to make, lifestyle or otherwise.

    If you’re not aware of it, negative self-talk is probably happening all day, every day, while you’re awake and while you sleep. It can seem as innocuous as “I never get a good parking spot when I come here” or “for whatever reason, I’m always leaving the house five minutes later than I mean to in the morning.” But it can also be as serious as “I’ve been fat my whole life, my whole family is fat, this is just how we are” or “I have never had a healthy relationship in my life, I’m not lovable, men always end up leaving me for someone better.”

    These are the beliefs that make it hard to lose.

    When we tell ourselves that we’re “always sick,” even if we say, “I’m sick of always being sick,” all our subconscious brain hears is “I’m sick,” and guess what? You’re sick. All the time.

    What can we do instead?

    One of my favorite tricks is to speak to myself like I would to a good friend. When I have a thought like, “I always struggle with my weight,” I try asking myself, gently, if that’s really true. Is it really true that I always struggle with my weight? When I look truthfully at that statement, it’s not true at all. What is true is that I have a few extra pounds that I gain and lose, and that I’ve not been consistent as it relates to my diet and exercise habits and patterns. There’s a huge difference between “struggling with my weight” and actually struggling with a weight issue.

    Try doing this for yourself. What are some areas that you struggle with? What are some things you tell yourself that you need to discover for yourself whether or not they are true? Are you “always broke”? Is that true? If it is true that you really have always been broke or in debt, what are some things you can start telling yourself to change that mindset and pattern of thinking? What about, “I’m working hard toward a fulfilling, financially stable future for myself and my family”? Or, “I am debt free and enjoying the peace that comes with it”?

    You might be thinking, nice Jess, I’m going to start telling myself “I am debt free” when I’m flat broke? Like, really broke. Like, not-sure-how-I’m-paying-rent-next-month broke. Yes, I know how crazy that sounds, but you should still tell yourself you’re debt free. Because when you start telling yourself what you want to become, what you know deep down inside serves you and your loved ones better, and you will become that. Your subconscious mind only knows how to help you become whatever it is you’re telling it to.

    If you’re not already familiar, these are called affirmations. They are “I Am” statements that affirm what you want. It’ll feel funny at first. Some people write lists of them that they keep by their desk, their mirror in their bathroom and in their car, so that they can recite them throughout the day. What you’re essentially doing is re-wiring your brain patterns to lose negative beliefs, and replace them with positive ones.

    These positive new beliefs are what will help you LOSE. Lose weight, debt, bad relationships. There is almost no way of moving forward if you don’t start with your mindset first. However, to try to convince anyone that this is simple would be unfair. It takes time and patience, but it does work. Elite athletes, famous actors and successful business people often credit the power of affirmations as helping them to gain a competitive edge.

    My hope for you is that you’ll give this some thought, and that if you are on a journey of needing to lose, that you lose well. I love watching people lose.

    Massachusetts Man Has First Successful U.S. Penis Transplant

    BOSTON, May 16 (Reuters) – A 64-year-old man became the first in the United States to undergo a successful penis transplant in a procedure at Massachusetts General Hospital earlier this month, his doctors said on Monday.

    Thomas Manning of Halifax, Massachusetts, had his penis amputated in 2012 when he was diagnosed with penile cancer.

    He recently underwent a 15-hour surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston during which a penis provided by a donor was attached.

    Doctors said the procedure was particularly important due to the heavy psychological toll the loss of genitals takes on a patient.

    “We are hopeful that these reconstructive techniques will allow us to alleviate the suffering and despair of those who have experienced devastating genitourinary injuries and are often so despondent they consider taking their own lives,” Dr. Curtis Cetrulo, one of the two surgeons who performed the procedure, said in a statement.

    In the same statement, Manning thanked the doctors and said he hoped other patients needing similar surgeries would be more likely to receive organ donations as a result of his successful operation.

    “Today I begin a new chapter filled with personal hope and hope for others who have suffered genital injuries, particularly for our service members who put their lives on the line and suffer serious damage as a result,” Manning said.

    Doctors in South Africa became the first to perform the procedure successfully in 2014 after they attached a penis to a 21-year-old man whose organ had been amputated following a botched circumcision. (Reporting by Scott Malone; Editing by Paul Simao)

    Whatever Makes You Happy: A Novel

    Whatever Makes You Happy: A Novel


    What does it take to be happy? How happy is happy enough? And what does “happy” mean, anyway? So asks Sally Farber-wife, mother, daughter, friend, working woman, and lover-in this wise and funny novel about a woman’s search for happiness in some of the right, and a few of the wrong, places. Summer in the city looms long for Sally Farber when she sends her two daughters off to camp for the first time. Suddenly freed of her usual patterns in a city that becomes a grown-up’s playground,, she embarks on a journey unlike any she’s ever had-filled with guilty pleasures and guilty pains.Caught between the past (cleaning out her childhood apartment as her demanding mother offers edicts from South Carolina) and the future (facing her first semi-empty nest), Sally finds herself unexpectedly involved with a powerful, unpredictable man. And as she researches a book whose very topic is happiness, she must weigh the relative merits of prescriptions for its attainment offered by Aristotle and the Dalai Lama, Freud and Charles Schulz, scented candles and Zoloft, her mother and her best friend. The answer comes, in the end, from a surprising discovery, in this rich and original novel about how we can find, and ultimately embrace, both happiness and love.

    Trey Gowdy’s Former Top Lawyer Undercuts The Benghazi Committee

    WASHINGTON — Shortly before the House Benghazi committee ramped up its battles with the Department of Defense in its probe of the 2012 terrorist attack, the committee’s own top lawyer admitted at least four times in interviews with military officials that there was no more they could have done on that tragic night.

    That’s according to a letter obtained by The Huffington Post that is being sent Monday to the chairman of the committee, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), from the top Democrats on the Benghazi panel and the House Armed Services Committee, Reps. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and Adam Smith (D-Wash.).

    The Democrats are sending the letter after relations between the GOP-led Benghazi committee and military officials recently took a turn for the worse. The military accused the committee late last month of demanding increasingly frivolous interviews from irrelevant service members; Gowdy responded by calling that charge a “partisan attack.”

    But in Monday’s letter, which includes four separate comments from Gowdy’s recently departed chief counsel, Democrats say Gowdy’s own staffer agreed with the military.

    According to the letter, that staffer, former Gen. Dana Chipman, said in interviews with former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and former Defense Department Chief of Staff Jeremy Bash that the department did all it could on that night when Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed.

    “I think you ordered exactly the right forces to move out and to head toward a position where they could reinforce what was occurring in Benghazi or in Tripoli or elsewhere in the region,” Chipman told Panetta in the committee’s January interview with the former defense secretary, according to transcribed excerpts. “And, sir, I don’t disagree with the actions you took, the recommendations you made, and the decisions you directed.”

    Chipman was similarly deferential to Bash.

    “I would posit that from my perspective, having looked at all the materials over the last 18 months, we could not have affected the response to what occurred by 5:15 in the morning on the 12th of September in Benghazi, Libya,” said Chipman, who himself served 33 years in the Army. 

    “I don’t see any way to influence what occurred there,” he told Bash at another point. “But what I am worried about is we’re caught by surprise on 9/11, we’ve got nothing postured to respond in a timely manner — and you can debate what’s timely, what’s untimely, but nothing could have affected what occurred in Benghazi.”

    That interview was also in January. Chipman left the committee not long after. His statements appear to confirm the general findings of the eight previous investigations into Benghazi, which found flaws in readiness and coordination but no signs of wrongdoing. Those reports also repeatedly debunked rumors that the military was ordered to stand down.

    But after Chipman’s departure, the Defense Department noted in its recent complaint, requests to interview people based on things such as Facebook posts and allegations on talk radio shows started to spike. 

    Those commenters, on the air and online, generally seek to revive some sort of stand-down scenario. Gowdy has said that it’s his obligation to seek out all sources of information, including from rank-and-file service members, not just the people who gave the orders that night.

    A spokesman for the Benghazi committee did not immediately answer an email request for comment.

    Chipman is not the first former staffer to cause heartburn for Gowdy. A military investigator who was fired from the committee accused it of running a “partisan investigation.”

    The Benghazi committee has been working for more than two years and has cost about $ 7 million and counting. Democrats estimate that other departments of the government have spent about $ 13 million more responding to the committee’s requests.

    And while it’s interviewed some 100 witnesses, its most notable revelation has been that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton conducted her State Department business on her personal email server. The FBI is investigating whether she violated any laws.

    How To Make Friends With Stress

    A caveman out on a hunt or a soldier on the front line needs the stress response in his body in order to have the energy to fight; the anticipation of the life-or-death experience puts his entire physiology into a state of red alert. So from a positive perspective, stress enables us to meet challenges, and to push ourselves into new areas of experience or understanding through heightening awareness and focused concentration.

    This would be fine if we had a bear to hunt or a war to wage. However, the stress most of us are dealing with is not from life-or-death situations, but is the distress that arises from an accumulation of pressure from much smaller issues. And although each separate incident may appear benign, if our response becomes increasingly stressful and we are no longer able to maintain our equilibrium then the body will put out the red alert.

    The stress response is activated when we are unable to adjust our behavior or deal creatively with demanding circumstances; we soon feel overwhelmed, like a steam cooker coming to full pressure. We are the only one who can turn down the heat, but unfortunately we usually feel powerless to do so.

    Does talking to your mother-in-law leave you wanting to bite your nails? Does your work overwhelm you and make you unable to cope? What do you do when you just want to scream from pure frustration? Stress is a derivation of the Latin word meaning ‘to be drawn tight,’ which is exactly what happens when too much comes at once.

    When there is no animal to hunt or war to fight in which to release the energy accumulating inside us, where does it go? Is it difficult to believe that ulcers or irritable bowel syndrome are connected to high stress levels, that we might get constipation or lose our appetite? What happens to the urge to scream? Is it surprising that marriages suffer, or that alcohol and food addiction is rising?

    Few of us like to think of ourselves as stressed; we prefer to think of stress as something that happens to others, without realizing how susceptible we are ourselves, as the cause of stress is not so much the external circumstances, such as having too many demands and not enough time to fill them. Rather, it is about our perception of the circumstances as being overwhelming and our perception of our ability to cope when we feel stretched beyond what we perceive we are capable of. If we believe we cannot cope, then we will begin to lose ground; if we believe we can cope, then we will be able to ride over any obstacles.

    Luckily, we can transform our beliefs and our perceptions. The idea that it is our work, family, or lifestyle that is causing us stress, and that if we were to change these then we would be fine, is seeing the situation from the wrong perspective.

    Rather, it is the belief that something “out there” is causing us stress that is actually causing the stress. And although changing our circumstances certainly may help, invariably, no matter what we do, it is a change within our belief system and our perception of our capabilities that will make the biggest difference. In turn, this will help develop the relaxation response and begin to normalize everything the stress response has put out of balance.

    In a relaxed state we have access to far greater physical and psychological energy levels. That is why stress-management, nap and meditation rooms are fast becoming an integral part of most forward thinking businesses. We can make friends with stress, increase our stress response, develop a higher level of adaptability, and the result of such change has a far-reaching effect on every aspect of ourselves, each other and our world.

    This Grocery Store On Wheels Brings Fresh Food To Low-Income Areas

    If you live in St. Louis, Missouri, a bus brimming with fresh produce may just turn up in your neighborhood or at your job.

    The St. Louis MetroMarket is a full-service grocery store on wheels. The bus, dubbed “Turnip1,” is stocked with fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy and bread from local farmers and community gardens. MetroMarket also likes to promote where its food came from, and uses the overhead space on the bus, where you’d typically see ads, to tell those stories. Outside of the bus, workers and volunteers offer nutritional information and food demos that show customers how they can prepare the food sold on the bus.

    But MetroMarket isn’t just a farmers market on wheels.  

    “I would hate people to get lost in the novelty of what we do because we sell groceries on a bus,” Jeremy Goss, a Saint Louis University medical student and one of the founders of MetroMarket, along with Washington University graduates Colin Dowling and Tej Azad, told The Huffington Post.  

    Because the true brilliance behind this nonprofit, which got off the ground with grants, donations and a free bus provided to them by St. Louis’ metro transit department, is rooted in the specific places in which the bus parks — corporate parking lots and low-income neighborhoods void of one vital business.

    “Entire communities in St. Louis don’t have a grocery store,” Goss said. “It was very frustrating to us.”

    In order to shop at MetroMarket you need a membership, or Fresh Pass, which costs $ 150. But this membership can be subsidized in one of two ways, either your employer pays for your annual membership or you live in a food desert community ­— or a low-income neighborhood without a grocery store — and live below the poverty line.

    “We take the revenue that we make from the corporate campuses, and use that to offset the work that we’re doing in low-income communities,” Goss said. “For every corporation we take on as a customer, we can subsidize this work in a low-income community.”

    Food prices are also on a sliding scale. Someone with a corporate membership would pay retail prices so those who don’t typically have access to quality food can buy it at cost.

    So far, the corporations that have partnered with MetroMarket believe in its social mission. Employees volunteer to help with the educational events outside of the bus and one partner, Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, even has its doctors write some unique prescriptions.

    “The doctors will be screening and evaluating their patients for hunger in ways they haven’t before,” said Goss. “And when they find a patient that does need a resource, they’re going to write them a prescription for fruits and vegetables.”

    Your Healing Diet: A Quick Guide to Reversing Psoriasis and Chronic Diseases with Healing Foods


    ‘Your Healing Diet: A Quick Guide to Reversing Psoriasis and Chronic Diseases with Healing Foods’ was written to make it faster and easier to eat in a way that enables the body to heal itself. Having used an imperfect diet instead of chemotherapy to reverse her own disabling disease, Registered Dietitian Deirdre Earls RD combines a bachelor’s degree with honors in Scientific Nutrition, nearly 25 years as a Registered Dietitian, and ten years of personal practice to simplify a healing diet for others. Because even the perfect diet is useless if it’s not sustainable, this short guidebook is written with the emphasis on user-friendliness and practicality. First this book explains how food can create and reverse disease and it distills common threads of success across several healing diets. Then it demonstrates how you can easily incorporate healing habits into your busy lifestyle. Special segments discuss recipe-free meals, healing principles, and what to expect when healing naturally. The lists of foods, grocery stores, and restaurants make it easy for anyone to shop, cook, dine in restaurants, and travel on the path to remarkable results.

    Sunday Roundup

    This week, the nation watched as the Republican Party continued its awkward attempt to pretend Donald Trump is something other than a dangerous buffoon. On Thursday, Trump met with Paul Ryan, with the two calling the talk a “positive step toward unification,” and Ryan adding that Trump is a “very warm and genuine person.” If Ryan ends up endorsing Trump, he must be held accountable for what he’s endorsing. As Senator Harry Reid said of his GOP counterpart, “Since Sen. McConnell has so enthusiastically embraced Trump, you can only assume he agrees with Trump’s view that women are dogs and pigs.” Rough stuff but he has a point: You either believe we should deport 12 million people or you don’t. You either believe there should be a religious test to enter the U.S. or you don’t. But the GOP isn’t alone in its attempts to white-wash Trump. The New York Times referred to Trump’s racism as “a reductive approach to ethnicity.” This is how someone like Trump can actually get to the White House in 2016: because of the reluctance — by political leaders and the media — to call out racism when they see it.
