Do-Able Diet:I Lost Half My Body Weight Without Giving Up The Foods I Love. Now You Can Too!


Tells how an ordinary young Australian woman single-handedly transformed herself from a ‘fat chick’ into a ‘hot chick’ by developing an astonishingly simple weight-loss plan. A couple of years ago I weighed 97 kilos and was a size 22. I have now lost 45kg and eight dress sizes while still eating at least six times a day, having dessert every night and only doing moderate exercise a few times a week. I am not a doctor or a dietician, just a young Mum who didn’t have the time, money or patience to try yet another fad diet that didn’t work. Instead, I found a way to lose weight without giving up sweets, attending embarrassing public weigh-ins or joining an expensive gym. I continued to do all my food shopping at the supermarket and I didn’t waste precious money on unidentifiable meal replacements or dangerous drugs. This book does not contain a new miracle cure, just loads of practical, easy to follow advice. This is really the most Do-able Diet you’ll ever find.

Phillip Roth’s ‘The Plot Against America’ Is Fast Becoming Reality

In 2004, Philip Roth published an all too prescient novel titled The Plot Against America. Roth’s premise was that the pioneer aviator, isolationist and Nazi sympathizer, Charles A. Lindbergh, won the Republican nomination in 1940 and defeated Franklin Roosevelt.

Roth goes on to imagine what life would have been like, both in the Roth household and in America, as Lindbergh keeps the country out of World War II and makes a tacit alliance with Hitler. As the Roth family comes to Washington on Inauguration Day, Philip’s mother catches a glimpse of the White House and begins to cry, “It isn’t like living in a normal country anymore.”

It isn’t like living in a normal country anymore.

Lindbergh goes on to steer America into a kind of soft fascism. The opposition still functions, but is vulnerable to arrest. Jews are not exterminated, merely herded into rural re-education camps.

Roth writes, evoking the 9-year old-who he was in 1942, “The relentless unfolding of the unforeseen was what we schoolchildren studied as ‘History’, harmless history.” But now, as history unfolded in real time, it was far from harmless and citizens felt helpless.

Roth, not primarily a political novelist, brilliantly skewered Richard Nixon and his thugs in Our Gang (1971). He offered a devastating early warning about Israeli Likudniks and their American enablers in The Counterlife (1986). His novel, The Human Stain (2000), which takes place during the summer of the Lewinsky/Clinton/impeachment mess, has some wicked asides about politics and sex. In I Married a Communist (1998), Roth creates a story of marital breakup and betrayal against the backdrop of McCarthyism.

Roth denied that The Plot Against America was intended as a comment on current political events. Yet on the eve of the book’s publication he wrote in the New York Times Book Review, in an essay on how the novel came to be:

“And now Aristophanes, who surely must be God, has given us George W. Bush, a man unfit to run a hardware store let alone a nation like this one, and who has merely reaffirmed for me the maxim that informed the writing of all these books and that makes our lives as Americans as precarious as anyone else’s: all the assurances are provisional, even here in a 200-year-old democracy. We are ambushed, even as free Americans in a powerful republic armed to the teeth, by the unpredictability that is history.”

History is indeed unpredictable and democracy precarious. But even Philip Roth, as brilliantly inventive as he is at creating the gargantuan and the grotesque, could not have invented a character like Donald Trump.

And even Roth could not figure out how to make things come out right after his fictional Lindbergh threw in with Adolf Hitler. So Roth resorted to a deus ex machina. In October 1942, President Lindbergh is providentially killed in a plane crash. Martial law is briefly declared, a new presidential election is called for November — and good, old FDR wins a third term! Democracy is restored, America enters the war, and Hitler unconditionally surrenders in 1946, just a year behind schedule. History unfolds, pretty much as before, after all.

We should only be so lucky.

So where is Philip Roth, now that we need him? How, pray tell, do we escape American fascism this time, now that this is no fantasy?

As it happens, Roth, 83, retired from writing and from public life in 2014. His last public appearance was a reading at New York’s 92nd Street Y, that May.

Last year, Roth donated his entire, 4,000-volume literary library to the Public Library of his beloved Newark, where it all began, as recounted in Roth’s first novella Goodbye Columbus.

Before he retired, Roth wrote a flurry of late, elegant short novels, including an agonizing one in 2009 titled The Humbling. The premise is that an aging actor realizes that he is losing his power, and one day he just can’t do it anymore. (“Going on stage became agony. Instead of the certainty that he was going to be wonderful, he knew he was going to fail.”) The novel — spoiler alert — ends with a suicide.

Roth is nothing if not unflinching. One can read aging actor as a proxy for aging novelist. Roth is such a perfectionist that it’s wholly understandable — admirable — that’s he’d want to call it a day at the top his game, before serious and even disabling horrors set in that maybe he was starting to lose his powers.

Still, I wish Roth were still writing, both to shed light on the human folly and foible that brought us Donald Trump, and maybe to invent a more plausible deus ex machina to get us out of today’s plot against America.

Alas, the magic that Roth conjured to restore Roosevelt exists only in literature. Trump is far more of a menace than Roth’s invented Lindbergh. Getting rid of him will take strategic focus, courage, and no small measure of luck.

Besides re-reading Roth, I’ve been obsessively reading and re-reading books on fascism. One clairvoyant classic, which I read at the time, is Bert Gross’s 1980 book, Friendly Fascism.

Gross wrote this book before Ronald Reagan’s election. But as early as the 1960s and 1970s, democracy was getting weakened, the economy was becoming more dominated by giant corporations, the imperial presidency had too much power, the military was too strong, and there was too much government surveillance of citizens. America dodged a bullet when Nixon was impeached, but the underlying power shift was still there.

A corporate/militarist state, Gross warned, was a vulnerable democracy. With the rise of all these anti-democratic forces, he believed explicit fascism was not even necessary. But Gross, it turned out, was an optimist.

The fascism now approaching is far from friendly. American democracy is far more fragile and impaired after decades of assault than we assumed.

We now have a president-elect with no regard for democratic norms, one who views the mythic people as a malleable mob. He has no patience for absorbing real information, but is possessed of a feral political intelligence that his opposition has yet to comprehend, much less effectively resist.

In Roth’s fictional America under Lindbergh in 1942, there is still a free press, though he does describe the assassination of a leading media critic. Trump, by contrast, is assassinating the difference between fact and lie in the entire media, and to an appalling degree he is getting away with it.

Too few Democratic politicians have displayed the requisite courage. In The Plot Against America, Roth imagines that in 1942, liberal leaders fight back. Eleanor Roosevelt, Roger Baldwin of the ACLU, and New York Mayor LaGuardia rally forces of decency. LaGuardia talks of the “sheer derangement that is threatening the nation’s sanity.” [315]

Speaking of derangement, Donald Trump actually described John Lewis, who bled for civil rights, as “all talk, talk, talk, and no action.” There is nobody alive less deserving of that slander.

The Sunday New York Times account of the Trump/Lewis episode notes in passing that Lewis was not attending the Inaugural, one of five Democratic members of the House to boycott. Five!

Others on that honor roll include: Barbara Lee of California, Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, Katherine Clark of Massachusetts and Luis Gutiérrez of Illinois. In fact, according to other sources, there are 17 Democratic House members all told who will be boycotting. But why are the rest going to Trump’s party?

John Lewis was right that this president has no legitimacy, just as Philip Roth’s imagined mother was right to feel that “it isn’t like living in a normal country anymore.”

This time, the plot against America is real. Not a single Democratic Member of Congress should be attending Trump’s inauguration, much less the Clintons.

It is an illusion to believe that if Democrats respect norms of comity, Trump will somehow reciprocate. He will just see it as more weakness, to be rolled over.

If you are wondering what to write your Member of Congress, start with that.

Where is HOME?

A good friend of mine shared a question posed by guitarist, Chris Wood on her Facebook page:

“Bob Dylan described eloquently how his music has been the quest to get home. Now as much as ever feels like a good time to ask you; what feels like home to you? Are you there already or do you still have a way to go?”

On the same day, singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran released a new song called “Castle on the Hill”. The song retraces the singer’s youth, returning to his former home and recalling his memories en route.

I grew up in a small rural town called Penrith in Cumbria, England. It’s a tourist town situated on the edge of the Lake District National Park. I return periodically but I’ve realised over the years how my fond memories are stored in music rather than the place itself.

I consider Penrith to be my home but every time I return I feel more distant, more disconnected. Maybe what I search for is my youth – to remember Penrith as I did back then and feel the way the town made me feel then – but lately it seems empty, soulless. The only way I can get that feeling back is by listening to music that reminds me of when it was my home. That works, then I miss it, then it feels like home again.

When my mind traces back through all the places I’ve lived, they each have songs associated with the memories. In that sense, each place feels like home. There’s a nostalgic pull to every dwelling for different reasons and different songs. For some, scents can also trigger memories of places they consider home.

But where is home? Is it the house or town you grew up in or the house or town where you raised your family? Maybe it’s the place you felt most loved or perhaps the place you gave most love to. How does our heart identify home?

For many, home is more than a memory. For refugees, home is their country; for the street children in Brazil and India, home is wherever they feel safest.

So are we all constantly striving to find home? Do creative people, like Bob Dylan, find sanctuary in their work?

I’ve spent hours pondering an answer to Chris Wood’s question and feel no definitive place as my home. The house where I live now, and watched my family grow, is my home but Penrith is my home town. Maybe I am still on that quest to go home, but I fear that home was a moment in time…

I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on what you consider home and why, so please comment below.

Democrats Lead Nationwide Day Of Rallies In Defense Of Obamacare

Supporters of the Affordable Care Act gathered to protest the health care law’s repeal in rallies across the country on Sunday.

The demonstrations were in response to an appeal by Democratic leaders in Congress for a day of action against ACA repeal, the defunding of Planned Parenthood and other policies promoted by the incoming Donald Trump administration.

Perhaps the highest-profile gathering was a rally at Macomb County Community College in Warren, Michigan, that drew thousands of people. Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), Gary Peters (D-Mich.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and several other members of Congress addressed the large crowd that had waited in long lines in below-freezing weather to attend the event. Many who have received health insurance thanks to the ACA shared their emotional stories as well.

When Sanders finally took the stage after his colleagues, the roar of the audience and chants of “Bernie, Bernie Bernie” made it clear that for many in the crowd, the Vermont senator was the main attraction. Sanders’ political action nonprofit, “Our Revolution,” live-streamed the event on YouTube and Facebook.

“This is the wealthiest country in the history of the world,” Sanders said. “It is time we got our national priorities right. The United States today and I hope everybody in America understands it: We are the only major country on Earth not to guarantee health care to all people as a right!”

True to his democratic socialist form, Sanders, who won an upset victory against Hillary Clinton in the Great Lakes State presidential primary, went beyond defending the ACA.

“So our job today is to defend the Affordable Care Act. Our job tomorrow is to create a Medicare-for-all, single-payer system,” he exhorted the crowd.

There were some 70 similar rallies across the country, according to Sanders. Photos on social media show significant crowds in Portland, Maine; Richmond, Virginia; Tampa, Florida; Boston, New York City and many other metropolises.

Other grassroots efforts suggest that the prospect of the ACA being repealed is finally mobilizing Democrats and their allies to take unified, concerted action.

The progressive organizations MoveOn.org, the Working Families Party and People’s Action reported that they were holding 500 “resist Trump” meetings on Sunday.

And on Saturday, over 100 people angry about ACA repeal packed Republican Rep. Mike Coffman’s constituent meeting in Aurora, Colorado. It was a scene that resembled past politically effective moments of protest, including the raucous anti-ACA town hall meetings in the summer of 2009.

Coffman only let people speak to him in groups of four at a time, then sneaked out a side entrance earlier than the event officially ended.

Head over here to learn about protest events scheduled for inauguration day this Friday.

Food In England

Food In England


Her love of the infinite variety of English cooking and her knowledge of British culture and history show why our food should never be considered dull or limited. There are unusual dishes such as the Cornish Onion and Apple Pie, and even recipes for fungi, from common field mushrooms to puffballs. She describes some delicious puddings, cakes and breads, including an exotic violet flower ice cream, an eighteenth century coconut bread and Yorkshire teacakes. The finely-executed line drawings that accompany many of the recipes are more than just beautiful; they inform the cook about different varieties and techniques of food-handling. First published in 1954, FOOD IN ENGLAND was the bible of english cooks and had a deep influence on many contemporary cooks and food writers.

Major Powers To Warn Trump Over Middle East Peace At Paris Meeting

PARIS (Reuters) – Major powers will send a message to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday that a two-state solution between Israelis and Palestinians is the only way forward, and warn that his plan to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem could derail peace efforts.

Some 70 countries, including key European and Arab states as well as the permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, are due in Paris for a meeting that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rejected as “futile” and “rigged”. Neither the Israelis nor the Palestinians will be represented.

But, just five days before Trump is sworn in, the conference provides a platform for countries to send a strong signal to the future American leader.

Trump has pledged to pursue more pro-Israeli policies and move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv, where it has been for 68 years, to Jerusalem, all but enshrining the city as Israel’s capital despite international objections.

“It would be a unilateral decision that could escalate tensions on the ground,” a senior French diplomat said.

“Five days before he becomes president, it’s not negligible that 70 countries recall (the need for) a two-state solution when his administration could implement controversial measures that may aggravate things.”

France has said the meeting does not intend to impose anything on Israel or the Palestinians and that, ultimately, only direct negotiations between the two can resolve the conflict.

A draft communique seen by Reuters reaffirms existing international resolutions, urges both sides to restate their commitment to the two-state solution and disavow officials who reject it, and asks the protagonists to “refrain from unilateral steps that prejudge the outcome of final status negotiations”.

LOW POINT

Diplomats said there could also be an allusion to Trump’s plans.

Relations between the United States and Israel have soured during President Barack Obama’s administration, reaching a low point late last month when Washington declined to veto a U.N. resolution demanding an end to Israeli settlements in occupied territory.

Obama’s secretary of state, John Kerry, said the settlement program threatened Middle Eastpeace, and that the two-state was in “serious jeopardy”.

Palestinian President Authority Mahmoud Abbas said on Saturday that he had written to Trumpwarning that a move to Jerusalem would kill off the peace process and strip the United States of its role as honest broker – and could lead to the Palestinians going back on their recognition of Israel.

Home to Europe’s largest Muslim and Jewish communities, France has tried to breathe new life into the peace process over the past year. It believes that, with the uncertainty surrounding how the next U.S. administration will handle the issue, it is important to push the sides back to talks rather than allowing a fragile status quo to fester.

But with elections coming up this year in France and Germany, and Britain appearing to align itself more closely with the Trump administration on the issue, the prospects of the European Union, the largest economic partner for both Israel and the Palestinians, taking a lead on the matter appear unlikely.

Arab states have their own concerns about how Trump’s relationship with them will turn out, and have taken a cautious line.

“All this is premature. We need to give the new U.S. administration time to assess what they want to do,” said a Middle Eastern diplomat based in Paris.

12 Things Every ‘Type A’ Person Wants You To Know

2017-01-12-1484257821-2930246-12ThingsEveryTypeAPersonWantsYouToKnowHP.jpeg

Robert Frost once said, “The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning and does not stop until you get into the office.” He certainly wasn’t thinking about Type A people when he said that. They barrel into the office like they’re racing for a pot of gold, and they never seem to lose momentum. It’s as if they’re driven by a motor that never shuts off.

We each have our own understanding of what it means to have a Type A personality, but what does this term really mean and where did it come from? It actually started in a waiting room shared by a pair of cardiologists. The doctors noticed that their chairs didn’t have wear on the backs as expected–the wear was only visible on the front edge of the seats and the armrests, suggesting that patients were literally waiting on the edge of their seats, ready to jump up the second their names were called.

So, the cardiologists–Doctors Friedman and Rosenman–wanted to find out if the strange wear pattern on their chairs was because impatient people are more prone to heart disease. They discovered that their hunch was correct. They also found that people’s personalities tend to lean in one of two directions, which they labeled Type A and Type B.

2017-01-12-1484257884-1847761-12ThingsEveryTypeAPersonWantsYouToKnowHP2.jpeg

Most think of Type A people as driven and highly strung and Type B people as carefree and even-keeled, but there’s so much more to it. Type As, in particular, are often misunderstood, as we just don’t understand the motivation behind their behavior.

To fully grasp what it means to be Type A, you need to hear it from the horse’s mouth. Don’t take my word for it–let’s see what they have to say:

1. We believe that winning is the only option.
We’re really hard on ourselves. Our desire to do our best often morphs into a desire to be the best. After all, if someone else does something better than us, then we mustn’t have been trying hard enough, right? This ensures that even the most mundane activities become a competition.

2. We live and die by our goals.
We don’t do anything “just because.” There’s an end aim for everything. That morning cup of coffee? The goal is to wake up. Half an hour of Pokemon Go at lunch? It’s about squeezing in some exercise and capturing more Pokemon than our friend down the hall. Heaven help anyone who slows us down or gets in our way. We’re nothing if we don’t reach our goals.

3. We’re always stressed.
Achieving our goals is so important to us that we often get stressed out about our progress. It’s that specter of wasted time or missed opportunities hanging over our heads that gets us all riled up, which can be really hard on our emotional intelligence (EQ).

4. We squeeze something into every possible moment. It may seem hypocritical that we’re sometimes late even though the rest of the time we’re impatiently drumming our fingers, waiting for meetings to start on time. The problem is that we try to squeeze a task into every possible minute, and sometimes we overdo it. In our determination to avoid downtime, we sometimes inadvertently create downtime for other people.

5. We want you to get to the point.
Skip the long preamble; if we have questions, we’ll ask. There’s no need to waste time on the setup when you have something important to tell us–just tell us. The theme here is efficiency; we’re interested in hearing the main points so we can begin taking action.

6. We hate to wait. We don’t hate being stuck at a red light or cooling our heels in a doctor’s waiting room because we think we’re too good to wait. We just like to be efficient with our time and don’t like things getting in our way. Every minute spent waiting is a minute we could have spent doing something productive. It’s a minute that we’ll never get back.

7. We’re conscientious.
Like “later,” “good enough” isn’t part of our vocabulary. Things are either right or they’re wrong. And they always, always have to be right. No matter what we’re doing, we care too much to settle for mediocrity.

8. We multitask. We’re not being rude, and we’re not bored. We just have a sense that the value of our day is measured by how much we get done, and we accomplish more when we do two (or more!) things at once.

9. We have a tough time relaxing. Relaxation isn’t a measurable goal, and it feels like a waste of time when nothing is getting done. It’s very difficult for us to sit around and “just be”; instead, we prefer to be actively “becoming” whatever lies at the end of our current ambition. Anything else amounts to lost time.

10. We have an unrealistic sense of urgency. From our perspective, “now” is the only time that exists. There’s no sense in putting something off till another time. While that’s often a good thing, we tend to give trivial issues a greater sense of urgency than they deserve.

11. We follow a schedule. Our time is carefully orchestrated so that each day we accomplish what we intended. Again like “later,” “whenever” isn’t part of our vocabulary. Everything gets scheduled and added to lists, and we take great satisfaction in ticking all the boxes.

12. We’re restless. Our motors are always running, so when we have to idle, that excess energy manifests in various nervous habits, such as fidgeting or biting our nails. Don’t worry, we’re not freaking out. This is normal behavior for us.

Bringing It All Together

We know that we can be awfully hard on everybody, but we’re even harder on ourselves. This may be difficult to see because no one else is privy to the perfectionist that’s goading or berating our every move inside our heads. Just know this: We care–we care a lot–and we really are sorry if our personality makes us hard to get along with sometimes.

The bergamot, a small yellow citrus fruit, is inedible raw, but its rind yields an esential oil much used in perfumery and confectionery. The fruit was first popularized in France by King Stanislas in the 18th century. In 1850, at the suggestion of a perfumer, a candy-maker in Nancy succeeded in marrying the essence of bergamot with sugar, and the bergamot of Nancy was born. To make the candy, sugar is heated over an open flame. Once the sugar is cooked, the essence of bergamot is added; the pre

What FDR Can Teach Us About Comey, Putin, And National Unity

In the wake of the most divisive national election in modern memory, President Obama has stressed that the president-elect and others in positions of power must send out “signals of unity” to maintain “the norms of a functioning democracy,” including the norms of “civility, tolerance, and a commitment to reason…facts and analysis.” But evidence of electoral interference by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and hackers working for the Russian government has raised important questions about our ability to adhere to these norms and even about the health of our democracy.

Roughly three quarters of a century ago, when the United States faced similar divisions about the extent to which dissension at home and fascism abroad threatened America, Franklin Roosevelt observed that the words “national unity” should never be allowed to become a mere “high-sounding phrase,” because in a very real and deep sense, national unity is “the fundamental safeguard of our democracy.” Indeed, he went on:

Doctrines that set group against group, faith against faith, race against race, class against class, fanning the fires of hatred in men too despondent, too desperate to think for themselves, were used as rabble-rousing slogans on which dictators could ride to power…

This is the danger to which we in America must begin to be more alert. For the apologists for foreign aggressors, and equally those selfish and partisan groups at home who wrap themselves in a false mantle of Americanism to promote their own economic, financial or political advantage, are now trying European tricks upon us, seeking to muddy the stream of our national thinking, weakening us in the face of danger, by trying to set our own people to fighting among themselves. We must combat them, as we would the plague, if American integrity and American security are to be preserved. We cannot afford to face the future as a disunited people.

All Americans should be deeply concerned about the growing evidence that the 2016 election might have been swayed by the politicization of a criminal investigation and/or the actions of a hostile foreign power. Yet the response among those in positions of leadership has been anything but unified.

It is now widely acknowledged, for example, that the unprecedented decision of FBI Director James Comey to release a letter announcing that the Bureau was reopening its probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server just 11 days before the election had, as the highly respected pollster Nate Silver recently put it, “a large measurable impact on the race” and “almost certainly” cost Secretary Clinton the election. Comey’s defenders insist that he had no choice but to release this information. But, as the noted FBI historian Douglas Charles has written, Comey’s dilemma was largely of his own making. He could have followed Justice Department policy and the past FBI practice of not commenting on the nature of a criminal investigation. Instead, he made frequent public references to the case and took the highly unusual step of offering his own opinions, characterizing Secretary Clinton’s actions as exhibiting “great carelessness.” It was this politicization of a criminal investigation–coupled with the ongoing leaks that plagued his department in the fall–that led Comey to conclude he must send his October letter to Congress, even though it represented a clear violation of Justice Department policy and there was no indication–as the release of the FBI warrant in the case yesterday demonstrates–that the so-called “new evidence” would contain any information that might alter the FBI’s previous judgment.

The majority of Americans who supported Hillary Clinton are justifiably upset by these revelations, and if the past were any guide, one might expect that this outcry would generate an equally determined effort on the part of Congress to try to ensure that such a development would not happen again. This brings us back to FDR. It was the perceived political influence of a federal agency–the Works Progress Administration under the leadership of Harry Hopkins–in the 1938 midterm elections that led Congress to pass the Hatch Act in 1939. Sponsored by a Democrat and ultimately signed into law by FDR, the Hatch Act not only stipulates that persons working below the policy level in the executive branch of the government must refrain from political practices that would be illegal for any ordinary citizen, but also stipulates that they must abstain from taking “any active part” in political campaigns.

Even though this legislation was sponsored by the conservative opposition to FDR–and as such was not particularly welcomed by the president–he eventually came to recognize its value and, when signing it into law, expressed the view that it would prove an “effective instrument of good government.” Unfortunately, there is no evidence to suggest that today’s Congress might follow the example of past leaders.

This same lack of leadership is evident in the shocking revelation that the Russian government ran a covert operation to help install Donald J. Trump as our next president. As The Economist recently observed, in the past any disclosure that a foreign power was engaged in an attack on the U.S. electoral process would elicit “powerful, bipartisan immune responses” generated by “love of country.” Yet again, there has been no unified reaction by those in power. The president-elect has dismissed the CIA’s analysis as “ridiculous,” and senior Republicans such as House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have signaled that they favor a far less aggressive examination of the issue than their Democratic counterparts. This must be regarded as further evidence of the extent to which the poisonous political climate has eroded the fundamentals of American democracy.

This can also be seen in the reaction of the American public to these developments. As President Obama noted in his last press conference, well over a third of Republican voters approve of President Putin in spite of reports from the American intelligence community that he was personally involved in the cyber attacks. This lack of respect for expert analysis and scientific inquiry–which has been encouraged by the tendency of the president-elect to substitute opinion for fact–represents an even greater threat to our democracy than the covert intervention of a foreign power and, as FDR said decades ago, must be guarded against as if it were a plague.

It is for this reason that Congress should launch an inquiry into both these developments as soon as possible. Not so much for the purpose of overturning the election, but rather as an exercise of leadership, as a means to restore and maintain the credibility of our nation’s key institutions, and in so doing, the public’s faith in the sanctity of the democratic process. It is the height of irresponsibility for members on either side of the aisle not to join hands to do so. As President Obama recently said in words that echo those of FDR, we should never forget “that what makes us American is not where we come from, what we look like, or what faith we practice , but the ideals to which we pledge our allegiance. It’s about our capacity to live up to the creed as old as our founding: ‘E Pluribus Unum’– that out of many, we are one.”

Winter

Winter is a three-month period of time that represents a pause in the activity of life. Great lakes, ponds, and streams freeze over; the earth grows hard and unreceptive. Tree sap stops flowing. Even the air becomes dense, slow to move, and heat stealing. Yet, not everything is as it appears to be!

The pervasive stillness and deep silence of winter are powers every bit as great as are the explosive forces of spring and summer, only different. After all, what is a glacier but a vast frozen river crawling its way through time? Both are forms of water whose unstoppable might can carve their way through solid rock! So, how can we channel this power of winter and use it to let go of whatever stands between us and the higher life we desire?

Winter is the time of the year when the forces of nature assume their most passive form. But we are discovering here that passive does not mean powerless! Consider the micro-pause between each beat of the heart. Is the heart less alive, made less potent for the brief rest it takes in its own beating? Of course not! In each such moment of its repose we could just as easily say that it is gathering itself for its next pulsation. In other words, its temporary passive state is actually a measured act of preparation. So it is with the “heart” of winter.

The better we understand this unique power of being passive–and how it serves as the secret consort of all things active–the more we grow in the faith we need to be wisely passive toward whatever fears remain in us about letting go of our false self. This is why, during the dark days of winter, we should take time each day–as often as possible–to quietly return to the living Light that dwells in the center of ourselves.

By gathering our attention in this way, and bringing the whole of ourselves into the heart of this interior stillness, we not only collect our own forces, as nature herself is doing, but much more: in this deliberate act of gathering ourselves–and for the conscious sense of quiet contentment we find within it–we are also being released from the false idea that the source of our strength and security can be found somewhere outside us.

The great French author, philosopher, and Nobel Prize winner, Albert Camus, knew the power of this truth now revealed. He also realized its liberating potential. In the following carefully chosen words, see how beautifully he tells us not to fear any season of life wherein we find ourselves feeling empty, alone, or without any Light in our life. He writes: “In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me lay an invincible summer.”

Once we start to see, to know in our innermost heart, that life itself is already complete, we can let go of whatever–or whoever–would have us believe otherwise.

Old attachments and their long-standing aches are now seen for being what they have always been: appendages of days gone by, worthless to the Higher Self we have agreed to become and by whose stillness we realize this need for a wholly new valuation of our own soul.

Now is the season to die to discontent, to withdraw our consent to live with any thoughts or feelings that would convince us it’s necessary to live in conflict or confusion.

The winter season can be the most challenging in terms of learning to channel its powers to help us let go. But, we may also have this timeless assurance: we are really created to enter into the perfect stillness from which we came. And for our return home–by entering into the bare infinity that is the center of our True Self–we arrive where we have always longed to be … without ever having had to set out. Here we make this last, glad discovery: the task of letting go, of separating ourselves from who and what we need no longer be, has already been done for us.

Lifestyle Guru Hey Fran Hey Shares 5 Self-Care Tips To Adopt In 2017

Self-care guru and social media personality Francheska Medina, who popularly goes by HeyFranHey, stopped by The Huffington Post Black Voices’ bi-weekly talk show “BV Breakdown” on Thursday to give some timely advice on how to cater to your mental and emotional health. 

Fran is also a co-host of the podcast “The Friendzone” where she frequently explores issues of mental health and provides helpful ways to practice self-care. Black Voices’ Senior Editor Lilly Workneh and Associate Editor Taryn Finley, who co-hosted Thursday’s episode of the “BV Breakdown,” asked Fran to share some of her wisdom on mind and body wellness. In doing so, Fran provided five helpful tips on how to stay rejuvenated and refreshed in 2017: 

1. Put Your Phone Down

To start things off, Fran acknowledge ways to address the very real struggle of social media addiction and ways to escape it.

“Just posting a picture or even your articles online…constantly has you checking your phone all day because you want these quick hits of dopamine [which is] the pleasure center in your body and your mind,” Fran said. “You’re basically looking for that pleasure all day long.”

The self-care goddess said obsession with social media can prevent productivity from taking place. “What happens is your stuck in this dopamine loop of looking for pleasure and things aren’t actually manifesting,” she continued. Her remedy for ending the social dopamine loop is to disable all notifications on your phone.

“That way you’re not so obsessive over whats popping up on your screen and you can actually concentrate all day,” she said.

2. Throw Some Passionflower Extract In Your Bedtime Tea

To simplify the process of catching good sleep, Fran suggested putting a couple of drops of passionflower extract in water or caffeine-free tea before bed. The extract is believed to enable better sleep by allowing you to feel more relaxed.

“It’s nice because it mimics that hormone that tells your body to chill out,” she said.

3. Meditate

As many people don’t have the time or resources to practice meditation in a yoga studio (or even their bedroom), Fran suggested wearing a mala bead necklace instead. The necklaces were created to enable a calmer state of mind as those wearing it are supposed to take a deep breath for each of its 108 beads.

If you don’t want to purchase a mala bead necklace, Fran suggested that a free alternative is to download the Headspace app which allows for a guided meditation.

“It’s nice to get that relaxation and get off that [dopamine] loop for a couple minutes,” she said of the app.

4. Take A Detox Bath With Epsom Salt

If you’re looking for a way to “get the week off of you” come Friday evening, Fran advised taking a bath using Epsom Salt, which is said to get rid of toxins, reduce stress and enhance sleep. You can even throw some lavender oil in the bath to potentially “tap into that goddessy feel,” she suggested.  

“You can make a tub full of so many natural oils that will just have you coming out of the tub just forgetting what the week was about,” she said.

5. Essential Oil Diffuser

To saturate the room with good energy and aroma, Fran recommends using an oil diffuser. While any essential oil of your preference would work, she suggests the Palo Santo essential oil which is created with remnants of bark from the Palo Santo tree in the Amazon Forest as it will give your space a more “natural feel.”

HUFFPOST HILL – Powerful White Guy With Mixed Civil Rights Record Gets Medal, Left Delighted

Like what you read below? Sign up for HUFFPOST HILL and get a cheeky dose of political news every evening!

Chuck Schumer came out against Jeff Session’s nomination, making us wonder just why the hell we even have a Senate gym. Sunny Obama bit a young visitor to the White House, giving Jason Chaffetz something to do once his Benghazi investigations wrap up. And President Obama surprised Joe Biden with a Presidential Medal of Freedom. As far as surprises for Joe Biden go, it wasn’t a Suzuki GSX-S1000F ABS topped with a big red ribbon and unveiled in a haze of smoke and lasers, but he’ll take it. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Thursday, January 12th, 2017:

DOJ INVESTIGATING COMEY ANNOUNCEMENT – Big news regarding this generation’s Bush v. Gore. Ryan J. Reilly: “The Justice Department’s internal watchdog will review the actions taken by FBI and DOJ officials in connection with an investigation into Hillary Clinton, Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said Thursday. Horowitz said the review was being conducted in response to requests from member of Congress, outside organizations and members of the public. It will review ‘allegations regarding certain actions’ by the Department of Justice and the FBI ‘in advance of the 2016 election.’ FBI Director James Comey has faced extensive criticism for his handling of the Clinton matter…. Horowitz’s office said the review will not substitute the [Office of the Inspector General’s] judgment for the judgments made by the FBI or the Department [of Justice] regarding the substantive merits of investigative or prosecutive decisions.’” [HuffPost]

SCHUMER COMES OUT AGAINST SESSIONS  – Eugene Scott: “Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced Thursday that he will vote against Sen. Jeff Sessions’ nomination for attorney general. ‘After reviewing his record and giving careful consideration to his answers during the hearing, I am not confident in Senator Sessions’ ability to be a defender of the rights of all Americans, or to serve as an independent check on the incoming administration, the New York Democrat said in a statement. ‘I am also deeply concerned by his views on immigration, which I saw firsthand during the push for comprehensive immigration reform. For those reasons, I will oppose his nomination to serve as the next attorney general.’ … Multiple civil rights groups, along with Democratic lawmakers, have expressed concern about Sessions’ ability to represent historically disenfranchised groups given his past statements on the Voting Rights Act, the NAACP and allegations of racist language, which he has denied.” [CNN]

The Senate Library is now displaying Michael Flynn’s book in the display case outside its office. Of course!

CUBA NOT-SO-LIBRE – Alicia A. Caldwell and Julie Pace: “President Barack Obama is ending a longstanding immigration policy that allows any Cuban who makes it to U.S. soil to stay and become a legal resident, a senior administration official said Thursday. The repeal of the ‘wet foot, dry foot’ policy is effective immediately, according the official. The decision follows months of negotiations focused in part on getting Cuba to agree to take back people who had arrived in the U.S….

TEAM OF SKEPTICS –  Bad news for God’s greatest job creator. Igor Bobic and Michael McAuliff: “President-elect Donald Trump’s numerous controversial and nontraditional stances aren’t just troubling to millions of people around the world. Apparently even his own nominees ― ‘the best people,’ as he tells it ― disagree with him on many issues, according to testimonies they delivered this week during their respective Senate confirmation hearings. It’s not clear whether their differing opinions will matter, since the men and women in the president’s Cabinet will ultimately have to execute their boss’ orders. But the degree to which all of Trump’s top-level choices disagree with him is remarkable. Nearly every nominee who testified this week put significant daylight between themselves and the president-elect, including defense secretary nominee James Mattis, CIA director nominee Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), secretary of state nominee Rex Tillerson, attorney general nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) and homeland security secretary nominee John Kelly.” [HuffPost]

Here’s a handy list of inauguration street closures in D.C. ― remember it fondly when people start closing streets as part of post-apocalyptic roadblocks

TRUMP MOVING TO UNDERCUT CFPB – Ben Walsh and Ryan Grim: “Trump met with former Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas) on Wednesday and is considering Neugebauer to run the [Consumer Financial Protection Bureau], Trump spokesman Sean Spicer confirmed on a Thursday call with reporters. A source close to the transition team told HuffPost that Neugebauer has yet to be offered the job, but that no other candidates are being looked at yet. HuffPost previously reported that Neugebauer’s name was being floated as agency chief if Trump decides to fire the current director, Richard Cordray. When he was in Congress, Neugebauer opposed CFPB actions like the first-ever federal rule cracking down on payday loans. He labeled the agency’s effort to require payday lenders to take basic steps to ensure consumers can pay back their loans and not get trapped in a cycle of debt as a ‘paternalistic erosion of consumer product choices.’ He introduced a bill to overhaul and weaken the agency.” [HuffPost]

MOAR GOLDMAN – God, GS is so depleted you wonder whether Trump’s people will have to lower themselves to hiring from JP Morgan. Matthew Nussbaum: “President-elect Donald Trump announced Thursday that Goldman Sachs executive Dina Habib Powell will serve as assistant to the president and senior counselor for economic initiatives. Powell, who serves as the global head of impact investing at the Wall Street behemoth and as president of the Goldman Sachs Foundation, will join a number of other Goldman alumni in the administration, including Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon; his pick for Treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin; and his pick to lead the White House National Economic Council, Gary Cohn. And Trump’s pick to lead the SEC, Jay Clayton, represented Goldman Sachs in his work as a Wall Street lawyer.” [Politico]

GIULIANI TAPPED TO TALK ABOUT CYBERSECURITY, OR SOMETHING Dana Liebelson: “Trump will also be ‘hosting a series of meetings with senior corporate executives from companies which have faced or are facing challenges’ related to hacking, identity theft and infrastructure security, the president-elect’s transition team explained in a press release…. It’s unclear what exactly Giuliani will be doing in his new role, but it could raise conflict of interest issues. Giuliani chairs the global cybersecurity practice at Greenberg Traurig and is chairman and CEO of Giuliani Partners, a consulting firm he launched after leaving public office. As The Huffington Post previously reported, Giuliani Partners had clients with political interests that could conflict with Giuliani’s governmental duties. Giuliani also has ties to foreign governments and political parties.” [HuffPost]

Bonjour! “French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen and some of her campaign staff were spotted Thursday morning at Trump Tower, prompting speculation that the leader of the hard-line conservative National Front party would be meeting with President-elect Donald Trump. A Trump spokesman denied that Le Pen would meet with the president-elect or anyone from the transition team, telling reporters that ‘Trump Tower is open to the public.’ An aide to Le Pen said a meeting with Trump ‘is not on her public agenda,’ but added, ‘We don’t communicate about private visits.’” [HuffPost’s Christina Wilkie]

THE DOCTOR IS OUT. WAAAY OUT – But hey, housing policy is easy. It’s not like it’s brain surgery! Kriston Capps: “Over the course of a breezy confirmation hearing that wrapped before lunch, [Ben] Carson yielded little in the way of specifics about his expectations or goals as HUD secretary. He proposed a ‘listening tour’ of the nation in order to build a ‘world-class plan for housing in this country.’ With a few exceptions, Carson faced friendly fire from members of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, who focused on narrow topics, including veterans housing and exposure to lead paint. By the end of the confirmation hearing, most of the questions surrounding Carson’s nomination—his qualifications, his plans, his philosophy of government, even his desire to run a cabinet agency—remained a mystery.” [CityLab]

Carson wouldn’t promise not to shove HUD money in Trump’s pocket. “During his confirmation hearing Thursday, Ben Carson repeatedly refused to guarantee that money from the Department of Housing and Urban Development would not go to benefit President-elect Donald Trump or his family. ‘Among the billions of dollars that you will be handing out in grants and loans, can you just assure us that not one dollar will go to benefit either the president-elect or his family?’ Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) asked…. When Warren pressed him again, Carson again insisted on his own personal neutrality, instead of agreeing to avoid sending money to the president and his family. ‘It will not be my intention to do anything to benefit any American, particularly, it’s for all Americans, everything that we do,’ Carson said.” [HuffPost’s Zach Carter and Arthur Delaney]

COREY LEWANDOWSKI IS MORE SUCCESSFUL THAN YOU –  Asawin Suebsaeng and Andrew Kirell: Corey Lewandowski ― Donald Trump’s former campaign manager who bruised a female political reporter, lied about it, got fired, then landed a cushy CNN commentator gig that he quickly ditched after Trump became president-elect ― has a new job in right-wing cable news. Nope, it’s not at Fox News, a network as relentlessly pro-Trump as he is. Lewandowski landed a new gig, which The Daily Beast has been told started earlier this month, as a political commentator at One America News Network (OANN), a relatively new conservative news channel based out of San Diego, California. ‘He’s working for us like he worked for CNN,’ Robert Herring, the CEO at One America News Network (who once offered the husband of Terri Schiavo a cool $ 1 million to give up the guardian rights of his brain-damaged wife over to her parents), told The Daily Beast in a brief phone interview on Thursday. ‘It started last week, but not exactly sure of the date.’” [Daily Beast]

U MAD DOG BRO – Senate Democrats took a strong stand against Trump’s choice for secretary of Defense Thursd- oh, they didn’t? Tal Kopan: “President-elect Donald Trump’s selection to be defense secretary emerged from his confirmation hearing Thursday with seemingly broad support, after he took a strong posture against Russian President Vladimir Putin and answered tough questions on women and gays in combat. Ret. Gen. James Mattis also cleared one early procedural hurdle in his confirmation as the Senate voted overwhelmingly in favor of giving him a waiver to a law barring military officials from becoming defense secretary within seven years of their military service. The Senate’s 81-17 vote, following the Senate Armed Services Committee’s bipartisan 24-3 vote, also signaled Mattis would likely face little opposition to his confirmation. Much of Mattis’ hearing focused on areas where Trump and Mattis might diverge in views. At the top of the hearing, Mattis took a hard stance against Russia and Putin in answering a question from anti-Russia hawk, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain.” [CNN]

Mattis has some pretty retrograde views about women and LGBTQ people, which evidently bothers almost no Democrats.

GROUP OF DEMOCRATS PROTESTING INAUGURATION –  Again, we can’t wait to see if SJL will stake out an aisle seat for Trump’s first state of the union. Jennifer Bendery: “A handful of Democratic members of Congress are planning to boycott President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20, saying they can’t bring themselves to welcome a man to the White House who ran such a divisive and prejudiced campaign. ‘I will not be celebrating or honoring an incoming president who rode racism, sexism, xenophobia and bigotry to the White House,’ Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) said Thursday. ‘He called women “pigs,” stoked Islamophobia and attacked a Gold Star family. He mocked a disabled reporter and appealed to people’s worst instincts. I cannot in good conscience attend an inauguration that would celebrate this divisive approach to governance,’ Lee said. ‘On Inauguration Day, I will not be celebrating. I will be organizing and preparing for resistance.’” [HuffPost]

SUNNY OBAMA GOES FULL BULLWORTH – We’re sure the Daily Caller’s staff is high-fiving and revisiting its “no white dogs” report. Kyle Feldscher: “President Obama’s 4-year-old dog Sunny bit an 18-year-old female visiting the White House on Monday, leaving her requiring stitches. TMZ reported the teen was trying to pet and kiss the Portuguese Water Dog when Sunny bit her on the face. The incident left a cut requiring stitches on the visitor’s right cheek. Dr. Ronny Jackson, the Obama family physician, checked on the visitor and determined she needed the stitches. She’ll be left with a small scar, but will otherwise suffer no long-term damage from the incident.” [Washington Examiner]

OBAMACARE REPEAL IS A TRAINWRECK – Matt Fuller: “It should be an easy vote. House Republicans have successfully voted to repeal parts of Obamacare ― or the entire thing ― more than 60 times in the last six years. But now that lawmakers could actually be making law, there’s sudden apprehension in parts of the GOP conference…. But as they grapple with more details about a replacement, and as leadership tries to push a repeal through before Republicans ever start debating a replacement ― or even hold a hearing on the impact of getting rid of Obamacare ― a once-easy messaging vote might prove more difficult than leaders have let on.” [HuffPost]

BECAUSE YOU’VE READ THIS FAR – Here are animals enjoying snow at the Oregon Zoo.

AREA MAN LEADS MUCH BETTER LIFE THAN YOU – And here you are trying to muster together the down payment on a 800-square-foot two-bed one-bath in a rowhouse beside a Whitehurst Freeway on-ramp. Emily Heil and Kathy Orton: “Amazon founder and Washington Post owner Jeffrey P. Bezos has bought the former Textile Museum, a 27,000 square-foot property, intending to convert it into a single-family home, according to a person with knowledge of the sale…The home is expected to be an East Coast pied-à-terre for the family ― allowing him to avoid hotel bills ― but the ample square footage means there’s plenty of room for entertaining.” [WaPo]

Four Uncommon Ways to Clear Your Mind and Make Big Decisions

What are some tips for battling decision-fatigue? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Jenny Blake, Author of PIVOT: The Only Move That Matters is Your Next One, on Quora.

Decision-fatigue refers to the phenomenon that, like willpower, our ability to make decisions throughout the day diminishes without proper recharging. When mid-Pivot and asking life’s biggest questions, we are often overwhelmed by smaller decisions and things that might not have registered on our radar in the past. Or conversely, we’re so bogged down by small day-to-day decisions that we don’t have the space to ask bigger Pivot questions about what we really want and what next steps would resonate most.

To refresh your mind, I recommend the following:

  • Don’t ask the same giant questions every day (ie: Should I quit my job?). Give yourself a period of time where you don’t have to decide at all, perhaps while you’re researching options. Revisit the decision at specific intervals of your choosing, but not on a daily monkey-mind basis.
  • Create routines for as much as you can in your life – morning routines, scheduling exercise for the same recurring days/times, evening wind down rituals. What recharges you? The more you can create routines around these things, the less you will find yourself debating what to do when throughout the day (gobbling up precious mental bandwidth).
  • Write your questions down.
  • Go with your gut! We actually do know the answer to more than we think – on decisions large and small. If you find yourself debating unproductively, ask: what does my gut say?

How Stress Can Cause A Heart Attack

A stressful, high-octane lifestyle is probably one of the worst things you can do for your heart, and cardiologists now have a better understanding of why. 

In a large-scale longitudinal study, published Wednesday in the medical journal The Lancet, a team of cardiologists at Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital found that stress increases heart attack risk by way of an overactive amygdala in the brain.

The amygdala is the brain’s fear center. The small, almond-shaped region in the temporal lobe lights up in reaction to fear, anxiety, stress or anything else that signals a potential threat (real or perceived). A healthy amygdala can help to protect the brain against stress, while an amygdala that’s hyper-excitable as a result of chronic stress or other factors can amplify the stress response.  

The new study shows, for the first time, how an overactive amygdala can cause heart attack and stroke. When stress triggers the amygdala, it activates bone marrow and inflammation of the arteries to create the conditions for a heart attack. 

“Our results provide a unique insight into how stress may lead to cardiovascular disease,” Dr. Ahmed Tawakol, a Harvard cardiologist and the study’s lead author, said in a statement. “This raises the possibility that reducing stress could produce benefits that extend beyond an improved sense of psychological well-being.” 

For the study, 293 people over age 30, all without heart problems, were measured for brain activity, bone marrow activity and inflammation of the arteries. The researchers followed the participants for four years, from 2005 to 2008, during which time 22 participants experienced serious cardiac events. 

Participants with more active amygdalas (as determined by the initial brain scans) were more likely to have a cardiac event over the course of the study period, and were more likely to develop heart problems sooner than those with less active amygdalas. 

“Eventually, chronic stress could be treated as an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease.”
Dr. Ahmed Tawakol

Inflammation is known to create blockages in the arteries, which can cut off blood flow to the heart, while bone marrow activity has been linked to blood clots ― another known risk factor for heart attacks. 

In a small sub-study, 13 patients with a history of PTSD had their stress levels assessed by psychology, and underwent brain scans and tests of inflammation levels. Those with the highest stress levels showed the greatest amygdala activity, and also showed more signs of inflammation. 

“Eventually, chronic stress could be treated as an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease, which is routinely screened for and effectively managed like other major cardiovascular disease risk factors,” Tawakol said. 

When advising patients on heart attack prevention, cardiologists typically focus on things like diet, smoking, alcohol consumption and physical activity. The new findings suggest that stress management should be considered as a preventative health measure as well. 

“In the past decade, more and more individuals experience psychosocial stress on a daily basis. Heavy workloads, job insecurity, or living in poverty are circumstances that can result in chronically increased stress,” Dr. Ilze Bot, a biopharmaceutical researcher at Leiden University in the Netherlands, wrote in a comment published alongside the study. “These clinical data establish a connection between stress and cardiovascular disease, thus identifying chronic stress as a true risk factor for acute cardiovascular syndromes.” 

So, if you work in a high-pressure environment or find yourself frequently under stress, consider taking up meditation, yoga, tai chi or other research-backed stress busters to keep your heart healthy. There’s a good chance that if your doctor isn’t already recommending these practices, she will be after seeing the results of this study.

FEC is after Trump and his JFCs for anonymous donations, other violations

President-elect Donald Trump speaks during a news conference in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York, Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2017. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)

President-elect Donald Trump and his joint fundraising committees received stern letters from the FEC for accepting anonymous contributions, donations higher than the legal limit and other violations.

BY: ASHLEY BALCERZAK

The Federal Election Commission on Tuesday sent its harshest letter yet to Donald Trump’s campaign committee, outlining violations that include accepting large donations from anonymous sources, taking contributions above the legal limits, failing to file reports of last-minute contributions and more.

It wasn’t the first such admonishment of the Trump campaign by the agency; he has been warned about similar matters in the past. This letter refers to Trump’s campaign finance report covering the period from Oct. 20-Nov. 28, 2016.

Both of Trump’s joint fundraising committees were called out by the FEC for some of the same kinds of transgressions in separate letters.

Besides that, Trump’s campaign, which reported raising $ 328 million for the 2016 election (including $ 66 million from Trump himself) has been noting refunds to donors who give more than is permissible in an unusual way that inflates his actual fundraising total.

Thanks for your donation, Anonymous D Mr. H27!

Anonymous donations of more than $ 50 are prohibited. Trump’s joint fundraising committee with the RNC, Trump Make America Great Again Committee, accepted more than $ 16,000 in such contributions, according to the letter. A Center for Responsive Politics analysis of the filing found 30 pages of donations from donors named “Refused, Refused.” (As in first name: Refused; last name: Refused.)

Refused

The letter doesn’t make clear how much of that anonymous money rolled into Trump’s campaign, but the Center for Responsive Politics found $ 1,300 transferred from the MAGA joint fundraiser coming from a donor named literally named “Anonymous.” (Check out page 5,477 to see for yourself.)

We at the Center for Responsive Politics conducted our own analysis, examining contributions to the president-elect for the entire election cycle, pulling out any name that included a number, symbol or email address, as well as names that included the word “Anonymous” or “Refused.” Using these parameters, we found $ 22,500 through Nov. 28 from these kinds of questionable sources. Some of these doting donors include Anonymous D Mr H27, Nancy MO5 and Anon Mr H40.

anonymous

Trump’s campaign accepted a $ 300 donation from Anonymous D Mr H27.

Interestingly, Anonymous D Mr. H27 and Anon Mr. H40 share an address: 725 Fifth Avenue, or Trump Tower.

Using this same analysis with Trump Make America Great Again Committee, we found about $ 19,000 in such strange donor names, mostly from our friend Mr. Refused. 

The Trump campaign and the JFC’s must respond to the FEC by Valentine’s Day (probably not with a box of chocolates), and must make refunds or other adjustments within 60 days of receiving the agency’s letter.

The FEC also devoted more than 240 pages of its missive to Trump to pointing out contributions over the legal limit, $ 2,700 for individuals and $ 5,000 for PACs per election. Last November, the FEC had similarly identified 47 pages in excessive payments. 

That’s not an uncommon mistake; campaigns on both sides this year have had to make refunds to overzealous givers. Last April, the FEC similarly scolded Bernie Sanders with a 645-page letter detailing more than 1,500 questionable donations.

What is unusual is how Trump’s campaign has been dealing with over-the-limit donations once it is aware of them. The right way: If someone gives a campaign $ 2,950 for the general election, the excess $ 250 should be reported as a negative amount, with a minus sign, so the amount is subtracted when the campaign’s contributions are tallied.Cruz

Here’s what it should look like, from Ted Cruz’s Febrary 2016 filing.

In Trump’s FEC report covering the first 19 days of October, he simply listed the full amount given by a donor and put a note next to it saying “excess to be refunded.” The excess — in the case below, $ 4,300 ($ 7,000 minus $ 2,700) — isn’t subtracted in the tally; that would only happen if the excess amount was listed, with a minus sign in front of it. Thus the campaign’s total receipts are inflated by the amounts that are supposed to be subtracted.

excess

Here’s what Trump’s reporting looks like.

In an amended filing for the same period, Trump used the same method, but included the date when the campaign gave the refund back, such as “excess chargeback on 12/1” above the positive amount. But without a negative number being listed, the campaign gets credit for the full amount.

His attempt to fix it wasn’t much better. Trump’s campaign did report the negative number, as it should, but instead of just stopping there, like the rules say, it added in the original too-big contribution as well.

It’s impossible to determine the amount by which Trump’s totals were inflated without going through every report and doing the math.

“This skewing of the numbers shows the committee’s accountants are quite inexperienced and not all that interested in ensuring adequate disclosure is going on,” said Craig Holman, government affairs lobbyist at Public Citizen.

In addition, in the closing days of the campaign, Trump’s committee received contributions from 56 limited liability corporations, or LLCs. Those can be legal, depending on whether their owners treat them as partnerships or corporations for tax purposes. The FEC wants the campaign to clarify their status.

And the campaign appears to have accepted contributions from corporations, which is clearly verboten; those included Buch’s Truck Stop, Eklessia Long Island Center Ministries, Klae Construction Inc. and Van’s Deer Processing.

Researchers Alex Baumgart and Douglas Weber contributed to this report.

Relationships That Have Roots are the Anchors in Our Lives

By Carolyn Massiah
UCF Forum columnist

The view in my backyard is a conservation area full of various types of trees. As the seasons pass, the trees lose their leaves and even some of their branches, but the trees remain in large part due to their sturdy roots.

To the side of my house is a concrete light pole. It doesn’t have any leaves and branches, obviously, but it is more susceptible to being blown down during a violent storm because it lacks the strong roots that mature trees have to anchor them through a storm.

When I compare and contrast the tree and the pole, I know I would much rather be a tree.

Both trees and light poles stand above the blanket of shrubs and bushes below. However, this is where the similarities end.

Many light poles are inorganic entities of concrete or metal, created through some form of human intervention. The shape and size in which these poles are created will forever be their shape and size as inorganic entities will not change during their existence unless there is additional intervention.

Trees, on the other hand, are organic. They are living organisms that continually change. They will lose and gain leaves and branches but they will also grow and mature throughout their existence. Continual growth and development is what I want for my own life. This is why I would rather be a tree than a light pole.

Unfortunately, positive growth sometimes must come from negative changes. Each year trees weather the change of seasons. With those changes in season, leaves come and they go and sometimes there may be seasons when the trees may not have any leaves at all on their branches.

The same can be said for our own lives. There are people that become attached to you as much as leaves are attached to branches. However, as the seasons change in our lives those people may disappear. Sometimes it seems several disappear at once and you are left bare much like trees in winter. For whatever reasons, those individuals were only meant to be in your life for a season. Yes, it hurts when those who you thought were going to stay forever leave your life before you are ready, but it is the nature of our organic lives.

Unfortunately, you never know how strong any branch will be until it is tested in the most violent of storms. Some branches appear thick and sturdy while they may actually be hollow or rotten to the core. If you step out on the branch for support because of its sturdy appearance, you might be disappointed and shocked when that branch does not support you but breaks and hurts you instead.

The same can be said for our own lives. There are people that we have relied upon and with whom we have built a long-term relationship. We have truly let them into our lives. However, as the weight of whatever burden you need bared by them increases, that friend gives under the load and breaks away from you in a permanent and irrevocable manner. Yes, it hurts but just as leaves come for a reason during a season, branches are there for those life-long lessons that we will take with us long after the branches have broken and been swept away. That is the nature of our organic lives.

So based on this, you might now be wondering why I would choose to be a tree instead of a pole. One word: roots!

Because trees are organic living creatures their roots continue to grow and strengthen as the tree grows and matures. When a storm comes, the roots anchor trees and allow trees to bend but not break in the storm.

Poles do not have that same anchor support. That is why we see more poles than trees down after severe hurricanes.

The same can be said for our own lives. Think about those individuals in your life that have been your anchor and support through the good and the bad. Often, much like a tree’s roots, those individuals do all of their work out of the view of others with no need of public acknowledgement. They are the blessings that we cannot overlook in our lives.

After comparing and contrasting the two, if I had to choose I would rather be a tree if it means that I will continue to have the blessings of roots just waiting to support me and feed me as I work to develop and mature throughout my existence.

Mom Talks ‘Vagina Stitches’ And Other Stuff No One Tells You About Having Kids

The first year of parenthood is full of messy surprises. While there’s no way to prepare for some of these experiences, other aspects are actually quite universal ― just not commonly discussed. 

U.K. mom and blogger Gylisa Jayne got honest about these “real” parenting moments in a viral Facebook post, titled “The things no one told me.”

“There has been countless moments during my first year of motherhood, when I have thought ‘ why did no one tell me about this…!’” she wrote.

Jayne proceeded to list examples of these too-real parenting experiences ― like the “stitches in your vag” that can hurt more than childbirth, the initial breastfeeding pain, the reality of never being alone again yet missing your baby during naptime, the feelings of loneliness and fear, and more. 

“No one told me that EVERYONE will have an opinion on your baby ― how to feed it, how to clothe it, how to name it, how to rock it, why you should only rock it for 5 seconds a day else it will be a spoilt little fuck, and how if you aren’t holding it 24/7 then you are clearly a Shit Mum…. and so on,” Jayne wrote, adding that no one told her a “polite way of telling said opinionated people to eff off” either. 

“No one told me that despite feeling like I couldn’t do any of this, that I wouldn’t know the first thing about motherhood, actually my instincts would not fail me, and everyone is winging it,” Jayne continued. “Some just make it look easier than others. Admiring someone else’s way of doing things shouldn’t make me question mine.”

The mom’s Facebook post really resonated with other parents and received over 75,000 likes. 

Jayne, who lives in Cornwall with her husband and their 1-and-a-half-year-old daughter Lily, shares her reflections on motherhood on her blog. She told The Huffington Post she was inspired to write this post and others along the same theme because she’s encountered many situations that simply aren’t covered in parenting books. 

“They all tell you how to parent and look after your child, but none of them tell you how to cope with parenthood,” she said. “I started my blog to reach out to other mothers that might be feeling like I was ― overwhelmed, lonely, isolated by motherhood in general.”

Since starting her blog, Jayne has amassed over 11,000 Facebook followers. She said she’s “honored” when readers reach out to share their similar experiences and thank her for her words.

“So many women now reach out to me to tell me that I’ve written what they were thinking but never found the words for,” she said. “I’ve found writing honestly about parenting has helped so many people realize that these moments are totally normal! It’s made women who otherwise wouldn’t have spoken about it feel like they aren’t the only one,” she added.

The fear and chaos and exhaustion and doubt ― it’s all normal.

Open Letter to Attorney General Lynch: Prosecution or Guilty Pleas for Corporate Crime

Dear Attorney General Loretta Lynch:

News outlets are reporting that you are about to settle the criminal case with Takata airbag defect case for nearly $ 1 billion and the Volkswagen emissions cheating case for nearly $ 2 billion.

On the VW case, the New York Times reported that “the company or one of its corporate entities is expected to plead guilty to criminal charges as part of the deal.”

On the Takata case, the New York Times reported that “one point that remains unresolved is whether there will be any guilty plea to criminal misconduct, either by the company or one of its subsidiaries.”

Takata’s defective airbags have been linked to at least 11 deaths and more than 180 injuries in the United States.

As you know, Clarence Ditlow, an engineer and lawyer who headed the Center for Auto Safety for many decades, passed away last year.

In early 2016, Mr. Ditlow appeared on my weekly radio program – The Ralph Nader Radio Hour – and called for criminal charges to be brought against Takata and VW and its executives.

Ditlow called the Volkswagen diesel case one of the most egregious corporate crime cases in history.

“This is one of the most egregious corporate crimes I have ever seen,” Mr. Ditlow said. “When the Environmental Protection Agency set tough new standards for diesel engines, Volkswagen quickly discovered that its technology wouldn’t meet the new standards. But, what they did is, instead of sending their engineers to work, designing a new system to clean up the diesel, they sent their engineers to work developing a computer program that would instruct the diesel engine to only work the emission controls during the test procedure. And, when the diesel is out in the real world on the highway, to turn off the emission controls. So, in order to do this you have to have engineers who deliberately programmed into the computer system a cheat device, which would turn off the emission controls. Clear knowledge. Clear intent. And they got caught.”

Ditlow said that “in the U.S. there are nearly 500,000 of these diesels with the cheat devices on them.”

“Across the world there are many millions, as many as 11 million vehicles in every country, polluting the atmosphere, causing adverse health effects. And, one study here in the U.S. said that there be as many as 60 deaths due to this corporate crime by Volkswagen.”

“I mean, we’re not talking about a petty crime here. What we’re talking about is a gross corporate crime. These diesels emit up to 40 times the amount of emissions that they are allowed to. And, it’s very fine particulates that are coming out of the diesel. It’s nitrogen oxides. And, it’s going into the lungs of individuals, and if you’re particularly sensitive you are quite likely to suffer disease and illness and ultimately death.”

“The government in the U.S. the governments throughout Europe and the rest of the world … send the responsible executives to jail,” Ditlow said. “This is not something that a rogue engineer did. This is something that management approved, because, you cannot sell a car unless you get it certified by EPA. And, top management always looks at that. Because, if it can’t sell the car, you’re not going to make money. And, the way they made money this time was they cheated.”

On Takata, Mr. Ditlow said this: “Up through the year 2000, almost every airbag inflator made worldwide, including by Takata, used sodium azide as a propellant. Very stable. If it broke down it just simply degraded and there were no adverse effects. If you had to replace it, you had to replace it. But, what Takata did in the beginning of 2001 was to change the propellant to ammonium nitrate, an incredibly powerful explosive. It’s what Terry McVeigh used to bring down the government office building in Oklahoma City. It’s what a lot of terrorists in the Mideast are using in the improvised explosive devises. And so, yet this propellant that Takata used, it was known to degrade, known to explode, they put it into the airbag inflator to save, once again, a few pennies per inflator. And so, they knew immediately, once these inflators were put into production that they were failing, they were exploding, and when they exploded they sent the shrapnel of the housing into the occupant compartment. And, if you’re behind the steering wheel and you had no other choice at that time, you are very likely to be killed or seriously injured.”

To bring justice to the victims of the Takata and VW criminal actions, I ask that you not just fine the companies and agree to deferred prosecution agreements, or a guilty plea against some subsidiary of the company – but bring the full weight of the criminal law – against both the parent company and responsible executives.

The recent trend of settling major corporate crime cases with deferred or non prosecution agreements has undermined the criminal justice system and sent a message that we live in a society with a two tier system of justice – deferred and non prosecutions for the powerful, guilty pleas and jail for the powerless.

Whoever it was that leaked to the New York Times that “one point that remains unresolved [in the Takata case] is whether there will be any guilty plea to criminal misconduct, either by the company or one of its subsidiaries” was testing the public’s sentiment on this issue.

Whatever your next stop in the legal field – be it corporate law firm, Wall Street, academia, or public interest group – rest assured your judgment in these cases will go a long way to help define your legal legacy as Attorney General.

Sincerely,

Ralph Nader

The Year of Courage

2017-01-10-1484073658-7328710-Courage.jpg
Copyright: crazymedia / 123RF Stock Photo

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
―Anais Nin

Years ago I gave up New Year’s Resolutions, because they always fell apart for me by March! Now instead I choose a theme each year – something I want to ponder, practice, and live into.

2016 was the year of noticing. I practiced noticing all year and got better and better at it – noticing small things and large patterns, how beautiful aging faces really are, and what people leave unsaid.

I’ve named 2017 the year of courage.

As we grow older, courage sometimes shows up in ways that are different from how it showed up in our younger years. For example, it took courage for my friend Joy to decide to stop downhill skiing. An excellent skier, she has loved skiing. And she’s past 70 and notices her reflexes have slowed down. She felt vulnerable and less confident the last couple of times she skiied. So – does her decision not to ski shrink or expand her life? I asked Joy. Her response was interesting. She said that although she thought it would shrink it, she now feels it actually expanded it. A good friend of hers fell and broke a leg skiing last year. Recovery has been slow and painful. “I had the courage to stop before that was me,” she said. And she’s recently started cross-country skiing, which she’d never tried before. “It’s a whole new skill,” she told me. “And I’m loving learning something new.”

Maybe it’s also true that as we age, the courage we need is different – not physical daring-type courage, but emotional and relational. Think of the courage to keep learning, to acknowledge when we don’t know, to see the humanity in someone we disagree with, to forgive.

I can already think of many ways I’m hoping to have courage this year:

  • To say “yes” to opportunities, challenges, life
  • To say “no” when I don’t want to do something
  • Not to be so sure I’m right about things
  • To listen deeply to people who have different views of things
  • To take care of myself, including eating less sugar
  • To create and participate in things that are a lot of fun
  • To stretch myself – keep learning
  • To speak up in the face of prejudice and injustice
  • To speak openly of spiritual matters
  • To love people deeply and well

Anne Lamott calls me to find new depths of courage:

“If there is one door in the castle you have been told not to go through, you must.
Otherwise, you’ll just be rearranging furniture in rooms you’ve already been in.”

What would be a good theme for your 2017? My friend Donna named her year “Simplify.” Before choosing courage, I considered curiosity, generosity and love. Somehow this quote tipped me to courage: “Without courage, wisdom bears no fruit.” ―Baltasar Gracian

COACHING QUESTIONS

  1. Consider choosing a theme for 2017.
  2. What will your theme for the new year be?
  3. How might it make 2017 a better year?
  4. Have a meaningful, fulfilling New Year!

5 Ways to Move Outside Your Comfort Zone

2017-01-10-1484074437-4726257-comfrotzone.jpeg

Most of the time we like to confine ourselves in cocoons of safety. We make life a routine and don’t strive to be better people. Going for the simplest option is natural. Besides, you are safe and surviving without ever having to face your fears and overcoming them.

Unfortunately, living an ordinary life isn’t exactly living life to the fullest. One misses a lot when it comes to learning new things, great experiences, acquiring skills, having fun, and personal growth. If you have ever desired to get out of that limiting cocoon, here are some tips on ways you can get outside your comfort zone.

Be comfortable in NOT being comfortable

The first step to getting out of your comfort zone is literally expanding your boundaries. Expanding your boundaries most definitely will be uncomfortable. However, the sooner you get used to and start facing discomfort the better and easier your journey will be. One of the interesting ways to get used to discomfort is sticking around in that uncomfortable situation for a longer period than you normally would. It is going to be a weird situation at first. But the longer and the more often you get yourself into such situations you would normally avoid, the more you get used to it, and you become comfortable.

Take risks, and hang out with risk takers

There are no two ways about it. When it comes to overcoming fear, either you face it, or you face it. The best way to overcome a fear or to venture into new territories is trying out new things. Hanging out with risk takers is usually a great idea. You can easily emulate what they are doing. Surrounding yourself with risk takers has a trickling effect. With time you will realize you are not scared of doing those things you are scared of or avoiding now.

Baby steps

This is one of the most realistic aspects of expanding one’s boundaries. If you make a drastic move, chances are you are going to bounce back when overwhelmed by what is beyond your comfort zone. The mind and body work with through conditioning. So. Take baby steps towards conquering your fears. If you have a fear of talking to new people, start by saying hi to your neighbors. If it’s public speaking, start by addressing small groups like your family. Expand slowly from there. When you look back, you’ll surely be surprised how far you have come.

Make snap decisions, and make a fool of yourself

Comfort zones at times are usually formed because we fear what others might think about us. But when you come to think of it, some of the people who are loved most and prove to be great company are those who do crazy and weird things without fear. They are people who act silly without worrying what others around them think. So why should you be worried about what they will think? Go ahead, and do that crazy little thing that will bring you out of your shell! You will be just fine, I promise…

Be honest with yourself, and stop making excuses

Fear will always be somewhere in the corner when you want to try out something different. However, let that not be an excuse for you to come up with all manner of reasons as to why you should not do what you want to do. Be honest with yourself and avoid the excuses. Instead, try coming up with more reasons as to why you should do that thing and motivate yourself to do it. The position you will be in after facing the situation is far better than when you keep harboring your fears. If you don’t try it out, you will never figure it out.

Stepping out of your comfort zone brings out the best in you and allows you to experience life from a whole different perspective. Enjoy exceeding your boundaries and have fun. You will realize that you are actually living a more fulfilled life. As you start off your new year, look to conquer that which has been conquering you!

Sen. Tammy Duckworth Slams Jeff Sessions’ Disability Rights Record

WASHINGTON ― A day before Sen. Jeff Sessions’ (R-Ala.) Senate confirmation hearing to be Donald Trump’s attorney general, newly elected Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) on Monday expressed concern about his fitness for the post.

Duckworth, a veteran who lost her legs in the Iraq War, questioned Trump’s selection of Sessions, when the Americans With Disabilities Act already appears to be under attack. “I personally am deeply concerned that at a time when the ADA protections seem to be eroding that we’re nominating someone who has less than a stellar record when it comes to comments made in support of disability rights,” she told The Huffington Post.

Duckworth, who served two terms in the House before winning election to the Senate in November, knows from personal experience how federal law can help individuals succeed.

“The ADA provides the basic protections that allow me to do this job. I mean if it weren’t for the ADA I probably be stuck at home and unable to work,” Duckworth said. “But because the ADA exists, I’m able to have a productive life and be a tax paying citizen.” Everyone, she said, was one bad car crash away from being in need of the ADA.

Duckworth said her concern about Sessions’ nomination stemmed from his 2012 stance against the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. In a 2000 Senate floor speech, recently reported by The Huffington Post, Sessions complained that a law that protected children with disabilities in schools had led to the downfall of the education system.

“We have created a complex system of federal regulations and laws that have created lawsuit after lawsuit, special treatment for certain children, and that are big factor in accelerating the decline in civility and discipline in classrooms all over America. I say that very sincerely,” Sessions said at the time.

Sessions, when he was Alabama attorney general in the mid-1990s, fought a lawsuit brought by nearly 30 of the state’s poorest schools. The schools argued they didn’t have the same resources as others in the state, affecting their ability to integrate special-needs students.

“It is troubling to me that we have a nominee who has a record of not supporting basic access for people with disabilities whether they’re adults or children,” Duckworth said.

Duckworth said she hasn’t decided on whether she will support Sessions’ nomination. “I want him to get a fair hearing, but I also want to make it clear that I have some deep reservations about him being nominated.”

Four Things You Need to Stop Putting Off

What are the things you should do before it is too late? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Nicolas Cole, Author & Entrepreneur, on Quora:

Here are four things you should do before it’s too late.

Create That Project

Whatever project you want to create, create it now. Because the part of you that wants to create it right now will not last forever. The book you write at 25 will be very different than the book you write at 30, and 35, and 40, and so on. As we change, our perspectives and feelings change as well. Create what you want to create right now, and capture this moment in time.

Love That Person

Do you connect with someone? Do you like someone? Even if you know, you won’t marry this person, or spend the rest of your life with this person, let yourself love them. Ride that wave together. You never know where that wave will take you–who knows, maybe you will end up together after all. But trust how you feel right now because that feeling won’t last forever, and the opportunity will be gone as fast as it presented itself.

Take That Leap

Is right now a unique time in your life? Do you have the chance to do something special–if you take the leap? What happens if you don’t take the leap? When will you ever get this chance again? Opportunities present themselves at the right times. They are never perfect–an opportunity is called an opportunity because it asks you to take a risk yourself.

Work That Skill

Guess what? If you don’t work whatever it is you want to get better at today, then you won’t be any better at it tomorrow. And if you continue to make the decision not to get better today, then tomorrow will never come. And before you know it, that skill either will no longer interest you, or you will not be able to (physically, mentally, etc.) learn that skill’s foundation. Learn it now.

France Bans Spanking Kids With New Law

A new law in France is making it illegal to spank children. 

On Dec. 22, the “Egalité et citoyenneté” (”Equality and citizenship”) bill officially passed in parliament. The bill included a section that bans parents from inflicting punishment that is “cruel, degrading, or humiliating” and explicitly forbids corporal punishment.

This section, which was added to the bill in July, makes corporal punishment a civil offense, so parents would not face criminal charges. But lawmakers and advocates believe it is an important symbolic change. 

“It sets forth a clear principle, which should be repeated to fathers and mothers and inform their future behavior,” stated the explanatory memorandum to the amendment.

“This law is a very strong symbolic act to make parents understand just how all violence can be harmful for the child,” French anti-spanking advocate Dr. Gilles Lazimi told the Telegraph. “Above all, it removes the notion of a threshold: There is no small or big violence. There is violence, full stop.”

The topic of corporal violence and specifically spanking has been the subject of much research. A study published in the Journal of Family Psychology in 2016 analyzed 50 years of research involving over 160,000 children and found that kids who were spanked were more likely to exhibit antisocial behavior, aggression, cognitive difficulties and mental health issues.

Once the law goes into effect, France will become the 52nd country to ban corporal punishment. 

The United States has no laws forbidding corporal punishment in the home, though 31 states have passed laws banning it in schools.

Lindsey Graham Chastises Republicans Happy About Hacking: ‘You’re Not A Patriot’

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday went after members of his own party who think the Russians did the United States a service by hacking Democratic emails, saying that people who have that attitude are unpatriotic. 

“We should all ― Republicans, Democrats ― condemn Russia for what they did. To my Republican friends who are gleeful, you’re making a huge mistake,” Graham said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “When WikiLeaks released information during the Bush years about the Iraq War that was embarrassing to the administration, that put our troops at risk, most Democrats condemned it. Some celebrated it.”

“Most Republicans are condemning what Russia did. And to those who are gleeful about it, you’re a political hack. You’re not a Republican. You’re not a patriot,” he added. “If this is not about us, then I’ll never know what will be about us. Because when one party is compromised, all of us are compromised.”

On Friday, the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency released a report concluding that Russian President Vladimir Putin had directed efforts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. elections with the goal of helping Donald Trump win.

“Russian efforts to influence the 2016 US presidential election represent the most recent expression of Moscow’s longstanding desire to undermine the US-led liberal democratic order, but these activities demonstrated a significant escalation in directness, level of activity, and scope of effort compared to previous operations,” the three agencies concluded.

Trump has so far refused to say publicly that he accepts their conclusion, arguing that computers are complicated and it’s difficult to know who is truly behind a hack. On Sunday, his incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus insisted that the president-elect does accept that finding, although the Trump team doesn’t believe Russia’s involvement ultimately had any effect on the election results. 

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, which released the hacked Democratic emails, has been embraced by conservative media. Last month, Fox News host and outspoken Trump booster Sean Hannity said Assange had “done us a favor” by making the stolen emails public.

Trump, too, has tweeted Assange’s statements seemingly as proof that Russia was not behind the hacks. 

Trump and his advisers have also tried to blame the hack’s victims, the Democratic National Committee, by saying it’s their fault for not having better cybersecurity. 

Graham has been one of the strongest proponents of aggressively investigating Russia’s role in last year’s electoral interference. He, along with some other senators, want to establish a special select committee to specifically look into the hacking. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), however, has rejected that approach and said any investigations will go through the pre-existing committee structure.

Why Smart Phones Are Driving Everyone Insane

2017-01-05-1483643814-5784134-SmartPhonesAreDrivingEveryoneInsaneHP.jpeg

There’s nothing worse than whipping out your smartphone during a meeting, and few things will turn someone off to you quite like a mid-conversation text message or even a quick glance at your phone.

Using your phone at inappropriate times annoys your boss and colleagues according to research from USC’s Marshall School of Business, and if you work with women and people over forty they’re even more perturbed by it than everyone else.

The researchers conducted a nationwide survey of 554 full-time working professionals earning above $ 30K and working in companies with at least 50 employees. They asked a variety of questions about smartphone use during meetings and found:

  • 86% think it’s inappropriate to answer phone calls during meetings
  • 84% think it’s inappropriate to write texts or emails during meetings
  • 66% think it’s inappropriate to write texts or emails even during lunches offsite
  • The more money people make the less they approve of smartphone use.

The study also found that Millennials are three times more likely than those over 40 to think that smartphone use during meetings is okay, which is ironic considering Millennials are highly dependent upon the opinions of their older colleagues for career advancement.

TalentSmart has tested the emotional intelligence (EQ) of more than a million people worldwide and found that Millennials have the lowest self-awareness in the workplace, making them unlikely to see that their smartphone use in meetings is harming their careers.

Why do so many people find smartphone use in meetings to be inappropriate? When you take out your phone it shows a:

  • Lack of respect: You consider the information on your phone to be more important than the conversation at hand, and you view people outside of the meeting to be more important than those sitting right in front of you.
  • Lack of attention: You are unable to stay focused on one thing at a time.
  • Lack of listening: You aren’t practicing active listening, so no one around you feels heard.
  • Lack of power: You are like a modern-day Pavlovian dog who responds to the whims of others through the buzz of your phone.
  • Lack of self-awareness: You don’t understand how ridiculous your behavior looks to other people.
  • Lack of social awareness: You don’t understand how your behavior affects those around you.

I can’t say I’m surprised by the USC study’s findings. My company coaches leaders using 360° assessments that compare their self-perception to how everyone else sees them. Smartphone use in meetings is one of the most common coworker complaints.

Bringing It All Together

It’s important to be clear with what you expect of others. If sharing this article with your team doesn’t end smartphone use in meetings, take a page out of the Old West and put a basket by the conference room door with an image of a smart phone and the message, “Leave your guns at the door.”

What do you think of smartphone use during meetings? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

California Killer Is First U.S. Inmate To Have State-Funded Gender Confirmation Surgery

A convicted murderer serving a life sentence in California has become the first inmate in America to have gender confirmation surgery paid for by a state.

Shiloh Heavenly Quine, 57, had the surgery in San Francisco Thursday and will be moved to a women’s prison when she leaves the hospital, Reuters reported.

Quine — who has been convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery for ransom and has no possibility of parole — won the right to the surgery after a hard-fought court settlement in 2015.

As part of the settlement, the state also agreed to create new policies in California allowing other inmates to apply to a six-member committee for gender confirmation surgery. In addition, California agreed to supply clothing and some accessories in prison consistent with an inmate’s gender identity.

“For too long, institutions have ignored doctors and casually dismissed medically necessary and life-saving care for transgender people just because of who we are,” Kris Hayashi, executive director of the Transgender Law Center, which represents Quine, said in a statement. 

The daughter of Quine’s victim is furious.

“My dad begged for his life,” said Farida Baig, who tried to block Quine’s surgery through the courts, The Associated Press reported. “It made me dizzy and sick. I’m helping pay for his [sic] surgery. I live in California. It’s kind of like a slap in the face.” 

Quine and an accomplice kidnapped and fatally shot 33-year-old Shahid Ali Baig, a father of three, in Los Angeles in 1980, and took $ 80 and his car.

The state was legally required to pay for the operation, said Terry Thornton, spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections.

“The 8th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution requires that prisons provide inmates with medically necessary treatment for medical and mental health conditions including inmates diagnosed with gender dysphoria,” she said in a statement. 

Quine told a prison psychologist who recommended her for the operation that it would bring a “drastic, internal completeness,” according to the AP. 

She tried to cut and hang herself in prison five times in suicide attempts.

Michelle-Lael Norsworthy, a transgender former inmate, won a federal court order in 2015 mandating that California pay for her gender confirmation surgery, but she was placed on parole before she could have the operation, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

The Lagasse Girls’ Big Flavor, Bold Taste-and No Gluten!

The Lagasse Girls’ Big Flavor, Bold Taste-and No Gluten!


When you have to give up gluten, either for yourself or a family member, you may think you have to say good-bye to all of the comforting foods you love. It’s hard enough adopting a new way of eating, but the idea of giving up your favorite fried chicken, mac ‘n’ cheese, or oatmeal raisin cookies is downright unfair and intimidating (and if your kids are the ones diagnosed, it can be even more difficult!). It’s a story Jilly and Jessie Lagasse know well. With a father famous for his bold Creole cuisine, Jilly and Jessie grew up loving rich foods full of big flavor. When they learned they both had to eliminate gluten, the Lagasse girls made it their mission to demonstrate that “gluten-free” doesn’t have to mean “flavor-free.” After years of gluten-free eating and experimentation, they’re here to help you re-create classic recipes and all-time favorites made without gluten-without sacrificing any of the signature flavors that make them so irresistible. Using everyday ingredients you can find at most grocery stores, Jilly and Jessie share recipes for breakfasts, lunches (including hearty salads and soups), appetizers, mains, and, of course, scrumptious desserts. With dairy-free and quick-and-easy options as well, Jilly and Jessie make gluten-free eating simple and extraordinarily delicious-whether you’re cooking for one or two, hosting a family get-together, or feeding the whole Little League team.

Texas City Found In Violation Of Voting Rights Act

A Texas city violated the Voting Rights Act and the 14th Amendment by purposefully trying to dilute Latino votes, a U.S. district judge ruled Friday.

Pasadena, Texas, will become the first jurisdiction to have to clear changes to its election laws with the Department of Justice since the Supreme Court’s 2013 Shelby County v. Holder ruling, according to the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund, which brought the Texas lawsuit.

The 2013 Supreme Court ruling freed states with a history of voter discrimination from having to get DOJ approval to change election laws. Following the decision, scores of states and localities rushed to pass voter ID and other measures that voting rights advocates say disenfranchise minorities.

The Texas lawsuit, filed on behalf of Latino voters in Pasadena, accused Mayor Johnny Isbell and members of the City Council of manipulating the districting system in order to keep Latinos from gaining seats on the City Council.

Latinos make up 62 percent of the population of Pasadena, a city of 150,000 outside Houston, but turnout lags behind white voters. Isbell, a Republican, faced challenges in recent years to his party’s hold on power as the city’s Hispanic population grew. With only a one-vote majority on the City Council, he led an effort four years ago to change the electoral system

Instead of electing City Council members by districts, which gave areas with a Hispanic majority a better chance of electing Latino officials, Isbell pushed a hybrid system with six single-member districts and two-at large districts, which would be elected by the public as a whole.

Voters approved the redistricting changes in a tight referendum election in 2013. An estimated 99.6 percent of the city’s Latino voters opposed the changes, according to Friday’s ruling by U.S. Chief District Judge Lee Rosenthal.

The ruling also describes how after the referendum, Council Member Pat Van Houte, a Democrat, criticized the changes before the City Council. Isbell had police escort her out of the building for violating a new rule limiting floor speeches to three minutes on any given topic.

In addition to requiring DOJ clearance, Friday’s ruling forces Pasadena to abandon the redistricting plan and go back to its previous system — a map used in the 2013 election made up of eight single-member districts.

Rosenthal called that the “less intrusive remedy” that gives the Pasadena City Council a chance to course-correct in time for its May 2017 election.

But the pre-clearance requirement is indeed the heavier burden.

“Any new City Council voting map, plan, or procedure may be enforced before court review only if it has first been submitted to the United States Attorney General and the Attorney General has not interposed an objection within 60 days after submission,” Rosenthal ordered.

It’s not yet clear whether the city will appeal. The lead attorney representing the city of Pasadena, C. Robert Heath, told The Houston Chronicle they would need to study the ruling before making a decision.

“Certainly, I do think that the plan doesn’t result in dilution of the Hispanic vote,” Heath told the Chronicle. “As the evidence showed there were more Hispanics elected under the 6-2 plan than were ever elected under the 8-0 plan. … But the judge obviously disagreed.”

The closely watched case may have implications for other parts of the country ― especially the South, where jurisdictions have changed electoral systems after the 2013 VRA case.

“The Court’s well-reasoned decision is a clear warning to other jurisdictions that might seek to limit Latino voting power by taking advantage of the Supreme Court’s dismantling of the protections of pre-clearance in the notorious Shelby County case,” Thomas Saenz, the president and general counsel of the Mexican-American Legal Defense Fund, said in a statement. “The decision is also a repudiation of those, including congressional leaders, who facilely assert that intentional vote discrimination no longer occurs and that the protections of pre-clearance are no longer needed.”

How a Waitress Taught Me the Best Lessons About Being Likable

What are the secrets of being likable? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Lisa Kirk, Writer, Soul Forward, on Quora:

I learned the secrets of being likeable from a waitress named Debbie.

I was working in a high-end restaurant as a cocktail waitress. The place was known for its steaks and was a hot spot for businessmen. The lunch crowd was made up mostly of suits and ties; a lot of powerful guys who wore beautiful watches and who all had sort of a new car scent about them.

The tip potential from a single shift was huge. Most of us were young, broke waitresses; we quickly got to know the customers and could spot the big spenders the minute they walked through the door.

You had one shot at gaining a customer’s loyalty; from the time they sat down until they paid their bill was your chance to make a big impression. If you did it right, they would reward you with a great tip and choose your section again in the future.

It was high stakes peacocking.

We would each try to be the most requested server. We were required to wear black skirts and white shirts so that we would make subtle improvements to our uniforms in the way of shorter hemlines, tighter shirts, and push-up bras; the whole idea was to get noticed.

We would be charming, and would try different approaches to get them to like us.

Most of us were great at getting first timers to sit in our section, but for some reason they didn’t become regulars. In this type of an environment, regulars are everything.

This was the case for everyone except Debbie.

Debbie was a money maker, big time. I had heard about her during my training period. The server I was shadowing told me the fastest way to get fired is by messing with Debbie.

I had heard stories about her. Customers would forfeit available tables in other sections and wait at the bar until something opened up in her area. She had most of the big spending customers as her regulars. The bartenders and staff loved her; she was the queen of the kingdom.

I finally met her two weeks into my job, and she was not what I had expected.

I had imagined her to be this super model look alike with a tiara practically welded to her head. Going off of her incredible reviews, I had drawn her very differently in my mind.

She was from Tennessee. She had long wavy brownish hair that she pulled back into a messy ponytail. She wore no makeup, had on a regular length black skirt and an oversized men’s button-down white shirt. She was not what I had expected.

She was the girl next door.

So what was it about her that connected so powerfully with everyone? It wasn’t her looks or her sex appeal; Debbie’s magic was her people skills.

I studied her. Seriously, I watched her like an educational film. I wanted to learn her secret. I paid attention to her body language, listened to her tone of voice and dissected her interactions with the customers. I asked people why they liked her so much, and I was able to piece together the anatomy of her social gift.

  1. She was easy. She didn’t need anything in the way of approval from anyone. She didn’t have any expectations of people. She maintained her own self esteem.
  2. She let you be you. You didn’t have to edit yourself around her or apologize for your opinions. You could talk to her openly about anything.
  3. She heard you. There’s a big difference between listening and hearing. She had the ability to interpret what you were trying to say, and understand where you were coming from.
  4. She refused to trash others, ever.
  5. She cleaned up her messes. If she made a mistake, she owned it.
  6. She was comfortable in her own skin. This was a big part of her charm. She liked who she was, felt good about herself.
  7. She was warm. Debbie was like the sun; she was warm and welcoming. People felt good being around her.
  8. She had no expectations. She didn’t do anything with an agenda. She didn’t manipulate people or situations.
  9. She was real. She wasn’t trying to be anyone or anything; she came as she was.
  10. She liked people and understood human nature. Debbie would often say you can’t have a beautiful garden without fertilizer. She knew that people could be ugly and give you crap in life, but the key was not letting it make you hard or bitter. Whatever was thrown at her in life was added to her garden and made her more beautiful as a person.

Debbie was popular because she was real.

She was honest; everything about her was hers. She didn’t alter herself to impress anyone. She didn’t need validation. Being around her was effortless; she didn’t need your constant approval, she didn’t bring along drama, and she accepted you exactly as you were.

She required zero maintenance.

There are so many copies and fakes in the world; people want the genuine article. It doesn’t matter how shiny a piece of glass is; when you put it next to a diamond it loses its luster.

I learned you can’t create who you are and try to pass it off as an original; at best you’ll be a good forgery.

Debbie was the real deal; she was the diamond.

Steve Martin, Carrie Fisher, and the Male Response to Female Beauty

In response to the news that Carrie Fisher had died, Steve Martin shared on Facebook the vivid memory of the impact Ms. Fisher had had on him nearly forty years before (presumably when he’d seen her portraying Princess Leia in the first Star Wars movie).

“When I was a young man, Carrie Fisher was the most beautiful creature I had ever seen,” Martin began.

As has been widely reported, Steve Martin’s tribute was publicly attacked by some as “sexist.” “Remember Carrie Fisher for her talent, her feminism, her commentary on mental health,” New York Magazine wrote, “– not for the way she looked.” A Twitter user’s comment captured the essence of these attacks: “”Seriously @SteveMartinToGo quit being such a jerk for thinking Carrie Fisher was beautiful and saying so on the occasion of her death.”

Although Steve Martin had his defenders, nonetheless, in the face of the attacks, he retreated and deleted his posting.

More needs to be said about how wrong-headed are those attacks.

Let me begin by acknowledging that women have much to complain about the manner in which men relate to them regarding their looks and their bodies. And they have much to complain about how men fail to relate to them– as full human beings worthy of respect. Particularly in the aftermath of an election to the presidency of a man we have heard boasting of sexually assaulting women, the injured feelings of women whose humanity has been denied and abused warrants acknowledgment and consideration.

So the following is not intended as a counter-attack on those women who, triggered perhaps by his rhapsodic comment about Carrie Fisher’s beauty, attacked Steve Martin. It is, rather, an attempt to clarify what there is in men’s response to womanly beauty that deserves to be honored, not condemned.

“Carrie Fisher was the most beautiful creature I had ever seen.” One can hear a fullness of heart in Steve Martin’s statement. He is recalling an experience of inspiration–a breathing in of spirit in response to something that touched him deeply, a pleasurable recollection of being moved by beauty.

I imagine most men can identify with that appreciation of womanly beauty. And it’s a good thing that we are that way. That response is deeply wired into our nature. It is a response that has for eons been life-serving, and life-enhancing.

The evolutionary process that has shaped us has seen to it that, by nature, we feel the feelings that help keep us alive and serve to pass our form of life forward into the future. It is good that the male human is moved, as Steve Martin was, by the perception of female beauty. That is no small part of how it has come to pass that there are people on this earth.

It has been well-established scientifically that what the human male finds beautiful in the human female is correlated with health, fertility, and advantageous genetic endowment. The perpetuation of life is vital business, and it is life-serving for us to appreciate what will help us continue our kind.

Appreciation of this sort connects with our fundamental being at a level way deeper than our liking someone’s “commentary on mental health.” That sort of thing can be real, but it is most unlikely to produce a memory that is still resonant forty years later.

Steve Martin was accused of responding to Carrie Fisher purely in physical terms. But I doubt that’s true at all. We humans do not just mate, we also form relationships as lovers. We are wired not just to produce offspring, but also to form families that can nurture our offspring through their prolonged period of dependency. Heart and soul are also involved, and when we see one another, we see more than just the purely physical.

Carrie Fisher was a woman of real spirit, and that quality of her being was entirely visible in her portrayal of the highly spirited character, Princess Leia. I would wager that when Steve Martin found Carrie Fisher beautiful, he was responding also to that spirit.

That was certainly the case the moment I first met my own beloved, April, more than thirty years ago. As she walked toward me on that afternoon in Rock Creek Park in Washington (on April 21, 1984), I saw her physical loveliness. (Not beauty-queen beautiful, but certainly pleasing to the eye even at that level.) But what captivated me immediately was a beauty that was both visible and at the level of the spirit.

Here’s how I put it two and a half years later, in the vow that I’d composed for our wedding. Describing her eyes as “like an open blue sky,” I said, “I saw in that first moment that your face is a clear window of your brave and beautiful soul.”

I continue to be moved by that beauty at moments that are, thankfully, not at all rare. Indeed, the moments that I’ve been most deeply moved by womanly beauty have been in recent years with April, who is now in her sixties. It is part of what I call “the sacred space of lovers.” And the experience of the heightening of my perception of such beauty illustrates the wisdom in the question asked by that old song: “Do I love you because you are beautiful? Or are you beautiful because I love you?”

The connections between the perception of beauty and the feeling of the open heart are complex. Steve Martin, I imagine, was not coming from any less-than-human “sexist” place in his perception of Carrie Fisher. I imagine that, back when he was a young man and he saw that beauty, had Steve Martin been given the opportunity to sit across the table from the young woman he had appreciated, he would have treated her as endearingly as he knew how to. If “sexism” implies some sort of lesser treatment, I doubt how he beheld Carrie Fisher would have been sexist in the least.

Men are supposed to appreciate women, and it all begins with first sight.

I am still moved also by the beauty I see in other women. Experiences of beauty – in general – are important to me. I am moved by the beauty of the music of Bach and Mozart. Moved, too, by the sight of the trees’ spring leaves emerging in the valley and ascending the slopes toward our house on the ridge. But nothing moves me more profoundly than womanly beauty, and the way movie stars are cast suggests that looking at such beauty is a pleasure that is pretty nigh universal.

I’m sure Steve Martin would affirm that his memory of seeing that “most beautiful creature” is a pleasurable one. Beholding womanly beauty is pleasurable for the men I know, and thus this response is life-enhancing as well as life-serving.

It does not diminish in the least that sacred space between April and me that I appreciate womanly beauty wherever I see it. As I see it, our being lovers is more than just a connection between her as a specific human woman and me as a specific human man. It is also a representation of that ancient reality of woman and man coming together in love, as lovers.

As Leonard Cohen put it in his song, “That’s No Way to Say Good-bye”:

Yes many loved before us
I know we are not new
In city and in forest
They smile like me and you

I love April not only for being her, but also for being the embodiment of Woman in my life. Did I not appreciate “woman,” I’d appreciate April the less.

That a man should respond to the beauty of woman is a sign of life’s flowering in him. Just as I would wish for every man to see in his beloved some substantial piece of the beauty that Steve Martin saw in Carrie Fisher, so would I wish for every man the capacity to see representatives of such beauty in the world around him.

The love of womanly beauty, and of the beautiful qualities that can be conveyed in that visible beauty, partakes of the sacred in the human realm.

Steve Martin’s recollection of Carrie Fisher’s beauty deserves to be celebrated, not silenced..

Andy Schmookler, who has spent the past dozen years warning about the destructive force that has been rising on the American right, will launch this spring a new series–not on the brokenness, but on a dimension of wholeness — with the title, “The Sacred Space of Lovers.”

George H.W. Bush And Barbara Bush Celebrate 72 Years Of Marriage

Happy anniversary to George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush!

The former president, 92, and former first lady celebrated their 72nd wedding anniversary on Friday. They are the longest-married couple in presidential history, a record they set back in 2000 when they beat out John and Abigail Adams, who were married for 54 years. 

The couple tied the knot on Jan. 6, 1945 in Rye, New York while George was home on leave from the Navy during World War II. They went on to have six children ― four sons including George, Jeb, Neil and Marvin and two daughters Dorothy and Robin, who died at age three of leukemia. 

The couple’s story first began in 1941 when they met at a Christmas dance in Greenwich, Connecticut. 

In a 1994 love letter, George wrote to his beloved wife, “I was very happy on that day in 1945, but I’m even happier today. You give me joy that few men know. I’ve climbed perhaps the highest mountain in the world, but even that cannot hold a candle to being Barbara’s husband.”

May this year be the couple’s happiest one yet!

3 Silicon Valley-Tested Tips For Introvert Networking

This article first appeared on QuietRev.com

In the Silicon Valley, many senior leaders are introverted—in fact, many more than in most other industries we’ve studied in our research of over 200 C-Suite Executives. There are some great lessons that we can learn about introverts from the Valley.

Rajeev Behera has worked in the Silicon Valley for the past seven years, running marketing teams in various start-ups. He now heads up Reflektive, a communication platform that enables employees to send and receive continual, real-time feedback. He provided me with three key tips for introverts to shine bright next to their louder, extroverted peers.

Focus on manager one-on-ones

One of the most important goals introverted employees need to keep in mind is to be intentional about having one-on-ones with their managers. Extroverts, as natural talkers, are comfortable discussing what they’re working on, what their goals are, and what progress they’ve made. Because they speak so freely, openly, and with such ease, peers and managers often hear of their progress and productivity at work. Extroverts’ more expressive nature can make silent introverts appear less productive.

What Behera suggests, then, is to play to one of the strengths of introverts—that of having deeper, more detailed conversations. People with quieter presences should intentionally converse daily with their managers, even for five minutes, to update them. Because introverts are not always talking, it’s important for them to set aside time to consciously inform and update their supervisors on their progress. This not only enables introverts to properly share their insights but also forms strong relationships. For introverts, it’s often easier to speak up one-on-one than in front of peers, so this tactic also gives them the opportunity to gain visibility in the eyes of their managers.

Behera put it well: “That’s probably the biggest key: letting them know how insightful you are and being very clear about what you’re doing in those one-on-ones, and making sure you develop that one-on-one relationship with your manager—outside of group meetings and team meetings.”

Focus on quality, not quantity

The next point Behera makes is similar to a point often made in the discussion about introverts and networking. Networking can be perceived as daunting and uncomfortable for many introverts. Rather than work a room the same way an extrovert would (speaking to many people for little time), introverts often speak to fewer people but have longer, more detailed conversations. Those conversations easily go beyond the superficial and can lead to relationships that last several years after the event, long beyond the more typical duration of a mere follow-up e-mail.

Within a company, the same tactic can be used to foster deeper relationships among employees. Once you reach a certain level at an organization, you have a tight-knit set of peers and co-workers; still, it’s often beneficial to maintain relationships with employees within various sectors of an organization.

The same way introverts would speak to fewer people at a networking event but sustain a deeper conversation, they could establish good relationships with employees across the company. This enables introverts to be known—not superficially by everyone at the company, but in-depth by quite a few.

Focus on synthesis

A final point is that it’s always helpful to be a second ear to your boss. Behera noticed the manifestation of this stemming from the one-on-one relationships he had with some of his employees. These employees would go off to their meetings or work in peer groups, listen intently to conversations, synthesize the information they’d heard, and report back to him in a thoughtful manner.

The ability to synthesize a lot of information is a key skill of introverts. Instead of talking a lot in meetings, they listen closely and share important takeaways from the meetings with their managers later on. The level of insight this skill provides is a great quality of introverts—one they should capitalize on.

Though introverts are quiet, they can shine just as brightly as their extroverted peers. Establishing one-on-one conversations with a manager, fostering deeper relationships with fewer employees across the company, and synthesizing information are all gateways for introverts to spotlight their talents and productive efforts.

Introverts deserve to be heard, and being quiet should not get in the way of that.  

Karl Moore, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor, Desautels Faculty of Management; Associate Professor, Dept. of Neurology & Neurosurgery, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University; and an Associate Fellow, Green Templeton College, Oxford University. He is doing a major research project on quiet leaders: Introverts in the Executive Suite. He is also an Associate of the Quiet Leadership Institute. Karl’s co-writer, Aya Schechner, is a recent McGill BCom grad who is working with Karl as a producer on his radio show, the CEO Series, until she begins law school in fall 2017.

President Barack Obama Slams ‘Repeal And Delay’ Approach To Affordable Care Act

President Barack Obama is on a roll when it comes to publishing journal articles. A day after his epic 56-page article on criminal justice reform for Harvard Law Review dropped, the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine published his short essay about the perils of the GOP’s plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, without providing a replacement.

Obama didn’t mince words, calling the plan “reckless,” “irresponsible” and harmful to millions of Americans who have come to rely on some facet of the law to protect their health care coverage.

The health care law has been in Republicans’ crosshairs ever since it was passed, and during his campaign, President-elect Donald Trump promised to replace it with a plan that would cost less, cover more people and still retain everything people liked about Obamacare. 

Now that Trump is poised to take office and the GOP controls both the House and Senate, the difficulty of replacing Obamacare with something just as good — if not better — is starting to sink in.

But that’s not stopping politicians from taking the first steps to repeal the law, despite the fact that some Republicans admit it could take two to four years to come up with a suitable replacement. 

According to Obama, here are the problems with repealing the law while delaying a replacement plan.

1. It could roll back health care protections like coverage for pre-existing conditions.

“Health care reform isn’t about a nameless, faceless ‘system.’ It’s about the millions of lives at stake — from the cancer survivor who can now take a new job without fear of losing his insurance, to the young person who can stay on her parents’ insurance after college, to the countless Americans who now live healthier lives thanks to the law’s protections.”

Part of the Affordable Care Act’s legacy includes industry-wide improvements to health insurance coverage, whether or not you’re technically on Obamacare. It guarantees coverage for pre-existing conditions for all and free preventive services for job-related health plans created after 2010, and allows young people to stay on their parents’ plans until the age of 26.

Consider Obamacare’s very popular provision that guarantees coverage for people with pre-existing health conditions without charging them higher fees. To make this work, the law relies on the individual mandate, which asks people to either prove they have health insurance or pay a fee when they file their federal taxes. Trump somehow wants to preserve coverage for people with pre-existing conditions while also eliminating the individual mandate

Individual mandates are necessary to avoid what insurance experts call a “death spiral,” which is when sick people enter the insurance market in droves, but young, healthy people stay away, driving prices up and keeping healthy people even further away from coverage. Without a way to nudge young, healthy people toward insurance coverage, insurance companies are stuck providing care to the sickest people, which will cause the cost of care to increase. 

One way to protect people with pre-existing conditions without forcing people to pay the individual mandate would be to gather the sickest people into government-subsidized high-risk pools that concentrate both their care and their health insurance costs, allowing younger, healthier people to pay less for health care, says Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). The only problem? Thirty-five states have already tried this, and they’ve mostly failed.

“When you put people into this insurance ghetto, which is these high risk pools, the cost is going to be extraordinarily high,” said health policy expert Sabrina Corlette in an NPR story from November. 

2. Republicans may never come up with a replacement plan.

“Given that Republicans have yet to craft a replacement plan, and that unforeseen events might overtake their planned agenda, there might never be a second vote on a plan to replace the ACA if it is repealed. And if a second vote does not happen, tens of millions of Americans will be harmed.”

Approximately 20 million Americans have gained insurance through some aspect of the Affordable Care Act, whether through staying on their parents’ plans, Medicaid expansion or the health insurance marketplace.  

Republicans claim that no one will lose their health insurance coverage as a result of replacing Obamacare, but they still haven’t agreed on a new plan or released any details on how they will preserve aspects of the health care law that people like and have come to rely on. 

Indeed, Obama says that without a replacement plan, there’s nothing to hold a hearing about, or analyze for cost, or present to the electorate for public comment — all things the president had to do to pass the Affordable Care Act. 

3. It leaves insurance companies and health care providers in limbo.

“Insurance companies may not want to participate in the Health Insurance Marketplace in 2018 or may significantly increase prices to prepare for changes in the next year or two, partly to try to avoid the blame for any change that is unpopular.”

Obama also points out that hospitals may have to reduce jobs and services in anticipation of the lack of compensation for medical care if the Medicaid expansion is repealed. 

J.B. Silvers, a professor of health finance at Case Western Reserve University and a former health insurance CEO, explained in a Dec. 29 op-ed that all this legislative uncertainty will produce some predictable results: Health insurance companies will leave the marketplace.

“When they leave the market, it is also easy to guess that the political and economic price will be substantial in terms of patient access, provider uncompensated care costs and employment in the health sector — a major job creator,” Silvers writes. “It is hard to predict these costs, but they could be into the billions of dollars.”

Those insurance companies that stay will continue to dramatically increase premiums to compensate for all the extra risk they’re taking on, as no one has any clue if the government subsidies that help people stay on the individual marketplace or the individual mandate — two unpopular provisions that also happen to mitigate risk for insurance providers — will be eventually struck down, Silvers explains. 

Obama’s essay is just one of many appeals against the GOP’s so-called repeal and delay plan. The Huffington Post’s Jonathan Cohn and Laura Barron-Lopez point out that conservative voices from the Washington Examiner and the Washington Post have recently questioned the strategy, as have conservative health care advisers James Capretta and Joseph Antos.

Some Republican politiciansincluding Trump, it appears ― are also questioning the wisdom of the approach. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said repealers may assume responsibility for the eventual failure of Obamacare, while Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) also warned against moving too fast, highlighting the need to “make sure nobody’s left out.”

Did you know that about 24.1 million people in the USA, alone suffer from heart disease? I thought that that was a terrible number, till I found that the statistics of Asian countries like India [60 million!] and China statistics were even more. One out of every four people in Tasmania suffered from heart disease, and high blood pressure. They hold the world record for the most number of people suffering from heart disease. That was surprising, because I was under the impression that this could possibly have been the prerogative of those European countries, like Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, where food eaten every day was still in Emperor sized helpings, especially in the form of smorgasbords and jumbo sized sandwiches. But then here are some reasons why heart disease statistics in these particular countries is comparatively low. First of all, they have a very healthy genetic background. Next, they believe in lots of exercise and do not bother much about sedentary lifestyles. These people are fit and fine because they cycle to work. On the other hand, many people were slowly and steadily developing heart diseases all over the world today do so because of bad d

The GOP War With The Federal Workforce Will Hurt Black Workers The Most

WASHINGTON ― President-elect Donald Trump and the new GOP Congress are gearing up for battle with federal employees and their unions. With control of both the legislative and executive branches, Republicans want to institute a hiring freeze in the federal government, bring a halt to standardized raises, and make it easier to get rid of underperformers ― all with the stated purpose of eliminating waste and bureaucracy.

When it comes to sticking it to the federal workforce, GOP lawmakers are leaving no tools in the shed. As the Washington Post reported Thursday, members of Congress even want to breathe new life into an ancient procedural rule that would allow them to target individual federal workers for salary cuts ― down to as little as $ 1 a year. Trump adviser New Gingrich has urged the president-elect to wage a “straight-out war” with the civil service.

If Trump and his fellow Republicans achieve all these austerity goals, there’s one group that will pay a higher price for it than others: black workers.

That’s because the federal government disproportionately employs African-Americans. In fiscal year 2014, 18.1 percent of federal employees ― or nearly one in every five ― were black, according to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. That’s a significantly higher rate than in the civilian workforce at large, where 10.4 percent of workers were black during the same period.

Of that 18.1 percent of federal employees who were black, the majority of them ― 10.6 percent of the whole ― were women. As OPM’s data shows, the share of workers who are black women is roughly twice as high in the federal workforce as it is among the greater civilian workforce.

So when cuts come down, black workers ― and black women in particular ― bear a higher cost simply because of the government’s workforce demographics. The same holds true of government shutdowns forced by Congress, when federal employees are forced to go without their paychecks until lawmakers can hash out a spending deal. And the same is true of austerity in state and local government, as well as cutbacks in the U.S. Postal Service, where around 20 percent of workers are black.

Federal government work has long provided a stepping stone to the middle class for many black families. That’s partly due to the fact that the federal government led the private sector in curbing hiring discrimination, after Franklin Roosevelt outlawed it through executive order. Federal agencies have had minority recruitment programs for years.

The feds have nonetheless struggled to improve employment among Hispanics, whose share of jobs still lags behind Hispanics in the civilian workforce as a whole.

WATCH: Getting More Than Your Money’s Worth

We’ve all heard the expression, “You get what you paid for,” but we also all have experiences of feeling like we got little value for something we paid a lot for, and lots of value for something we got for little or no money (I’m hoping that certain YouTube videos fall into that category…). Maybe the real truth is that we get what we choose to get – that we are responsible for the amount of value we receive. And if that’s the case, choose to get maximum value from whatever you invest your time and money into. I hope this helps you get the most from this new year.

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.
