Harry Reid Calls Journalism ‘More Important Than Ever’ In Parting Message

WASHINGTON ― Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) delivered a parting message to Capitol Hill reporters on Tuesday during what was likely his last press conference before his retirement after five terms in the Senate.

“I have abiding faith in the work that you do, and right now, your work is more important than ever,” Reid told reporters during his weekly press stakeout. “What happened in the election, there is great efforts to have fake news and to have tweets determine what happens with news of the day. You have an extremely difficult responsibility now, and it’s more important than ever.”

The debate over so-called fake news has only increased after an election won by a candidate with a particular disregard for the truth. Even during the transition process, for example, President-elect Donald Trump has continued to make false claims that “millions” of ballots were illegally cast in California.

Over the weekend, police in Washington D.C. detained an armed man at a local pizza shop who was incensed by an online conspiracy theory that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and campaign chairman John Podesta ran a child sex trafficking ring in the back of the restaurant. There is no evidence to support the theory, but it quickly spread through fake news sites and Reddit.

Of course, Reid himself has also made some dubious claims. In 2012, he accused then-Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney of not having paid any taxes in the last decade. The former Massachusetts governor later released his tax returns for 2010 and 2011, showing that he had indeed paid taxes for those years.

During the press conference on Tuesday, Reid said that journalists had a responsibility to keep those in power honest in the coming months. 

“I think taking tough questions from journalists is part of the job, and I wish you all the very best ― recognizing that your burden at this stage of America is extremely heavy,” he said. “I wish you the very best in doing what you can to help our great country.”

Do You Need a Coach or Therapist?

Coaches and therapists often overlap in what they offer clients. Understanding how they differ and articulating what you need can help you decide if coaching or therapy is better for you.

2016-11-30-1480540718-4221862-omega_institute_life_coaching_therapy.jpg

There are times in life when you need something more than the support of friends and family. Perhaps you want help to break a habit or meet a goal. Or maybe you want to examine and resolve deeply personal issues with someone who will listen to you without judgment.

Whatever your motivation, it can help to talk to a professional. A UCLA study showed that when you verbalize your feelings, it makes them less intense. But who should you talk to? Would a life coach or a therapist be more appropriate?

Coaches are useful for people looking to reach a specific goal or break a habit, often in a particular area, like health or career. Therapists generally address long-term emotional issues or problems, like trauma, addiction, anxiety, and depression. But these are generalities, and often a therapist may act as a coach and a coach may offer therapeutic support. The best thing you can do is get clear on your needs and goals and then do the research to find the right coach or therapist for you.

Do You Need to Climb Out of a Hole or Climb a Mountain?
The Differences Between Therapy & Coaching

In the book Coaching for Transformation, coaching is defined as “a partnership that maximizes human potential.” Coaches focus on “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential,” according to the International Coach Federation (ICF), the oldest and largest professional coaching organization. This description also fits for most therapists, too.

The American Psychological Association defines a therapist as someone who “provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who is objective, neutral, and nonjudgmental.” Which is also true of most coaches.

Richard Michaels, a Gestalt therapist and a life and executive coach, says that while both modalities “work to increase awareness: self-awareness, self-understanding, and emotional awareness…. The role of the client is more active [in coaching]. In therapy, you have more interpretation of what’s going on and more focus on your family of origin.” He describes many of his clients as high-functioning individuals who are ready to go deeper in some part of their life.

Madhu Maron, a human resources professional who now works as a life coach, says, “The [coaching] client is really longing for a change–[they have] a persistent deep, important longing,” she says. “It’s something like, I want to be healthier, get a new job, or have a better relationship. They can be very effective in certain parts of their lives, but not effective in this one area.”

Therapist and life coach Lisa Marie Bobby explains the difference this way: if you are dealing with depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, emotional issues, or other problems that leave you feeling trapped in a hole, a therapist is probably the best person to help you climb out of it. Once you’re out of the hole and on level ground, a coach can help you climb whatever mountain you wish to climb, usually in an effort to improve your circumstances or have greater success in areas like career, relationships, or health.

Vetting a Coach or Therapist
Do Your Homework & Get Surprisingly Fast Results

Once you’ve identified if you need help getting out of the hole or are ready to climb a mountain, you’ll probably want to do some research and interview potential therapists and coaches to find someone who offers what you need. There are a wide range of therapies and coaching practices–being an informed client and asking questions up front to find the best match will save you a lot of time and money.

There are hundreds of styles of therapy, so if you don’t have the time or inclination to explore the options, you might begin with an online directory to find therapists near you or ask friends for recommendations.

Therapists refer to themselves in many different ways. To be a psychologist, psychoanalyst, psychiatrist, or social worker requires an advanced degree, and these titles are regulated. If someone is calling themselves by one of these titles, you know they have received at least a master’s degree and passed licensing requirements.

The titles “therapist,” “counselor,” and “psychotherapist” are not regulated and don’t require a license. This doesn’t mean all therapists are unlicensed; many of them are. It just means anyone can call themselves a therapist, so you may need to investigate someone’s credentials if they’re billing themselves as one.

Life coaches are not required to have any training. Many coaches complete training programs, and groups like the International Coaching Federation are working to standardize credentials in the field, but currently anyone can call themselves a coach.

To find a coach, begin with an online search for coaches who focus on the area you want to address. Ask friends and colleagues for recommendations. Most coaches (and many therapists) work remotely with clients via phone or Skype, so location is not necessarily an issue.

Whether you decide on therapy or coaching, results often come relatively quickly. One study found that most people feel better with about 10 therapy sessions, while another said that 88 percent of therapy participants reported improvements after one visit. So while it may take you some time to find the right coach or therapist, once you do you’re likely to notice changes fast.

Gain the skills, knowledge, and inspiration you need to become a professional coach with this 10-month certification program.

The One Thing Trump Can’t Possibly Make Any Worse For Those Over 50

While most mid-lifers’ hands have been wringing about what menacing changes President-elect Donald Trump has in store for Medicare, Social Security, and their retirement funds, there is a fourth leg on the aging stool that few are talking about: Long-term care.

Truth is, whatever a Trump administration has in mind for long-term care, it probably can’t make things any worse.

Long-term care is a euphemism for a skilled nursing home ― the place everyone says they want to avoid. The average annual cost of a nursing home is more than $ 92,000, according to Genworth. Make that $ 112,000 a year if you live in California or $ 136,000 if you live in New York.

Other than lottery winners, the 1 percent and the Trump kids, very few people can afford it. A few ― and we do mean a very few ― buy long-term care insurance policies with the idea of defraying the costs of a nursing home stay should one become necessary.

First a few facts: There is a 70 percent chance you will need some kind of long-term care after age 65 ― but know that 40 percent of those who receive long-term care are under 65. And eight percent of people between ages 40 and 50 have a disability that could require long-term care services.

We’re not talking about a week spent in a nursing home after a major surgery, either. The average need for long-term care is 1,040 days, according to the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance. For the mathematically challenged, that’s almost three years.

And no, Medicare won’t cover it. Medicare, the subsidized health care program for those 65 and older, covers the kind of skilled short-term nursing care you might need after a hospitalization, but it won’t pay for permanent assistance. Medicaid ― the health care program for low-income people ― will cover nursing home care, but only for those with limited assets. Not all nursing homes accept Medicaid patients, and you won’t have much say about what facility dad will go to if Medicaid is paying the bills. To get Medicaid to pay, patients must spend down their assets according to guidelines set by their state. Think “spend down,” as in very down. Many people enter a nursing home or assisted living facility paying for their care out of their own pocket, and then apply for Medicaid when they basically go broke. Oh, you were hoping to leave the kids a little something? Good one.

So this leaves us with long-term care insurance. It is expensive, premiums go up, and it often provides only limited benefits with many restrictions and conditions that may end up with only a small percentage of your total long-term care costs covered. In some case, you may get nothing at all, says NOLO.

As far as insurances go, this one pretty much sucks ― which may be why 95 percent of the population doesn’t have it. Consumer and financial experts say LTC policies are a bad investment unless the monthly premium is 5 percent or less of your monthly income. When calculating that 5 percent figure for future years, bear in mind that the premiums will rise while your income will drop.

How many of us will be staring down the barrel of long-term care problems in the future? Many. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that by 2050, 20 percent of the U.S. population will be 65 or older, up from 12 percent in 2000. And if things are tough now, what will replace our current rickety system of Medicare, Medicaid and crappy private insurance that few have anyway? Wouldn’t a nice publicly financed insurance program be a lovely way to Make America Great Again?

Trump is silent and no one is holding their breath. But it’s good to have at least one thing he really can’t make worse.

Costa Rican Organic Ground (12 oz)

Costa Rican Organic Ground (12 oz)


Sustainably-produced, Organically farmedThis single-origin blend comes from southern Costa Rica’s Brunca growing region, known for the many biological reserves that dot its landscape. The Brunca region boasts abundant vegetation and rich, volcanic soils, which make for ideal growing conditions, and under the shade of natural tree species, coffee plants thrive. In 1991, six years after our founding, we realized the value in organic farming and spearheaded the organic coffee movement in Costa Rica by helping some of the first coffee plantations to become organically certified. Since then, we have been buying beans for this blend from only 100% USDA organic certified farms in the Brunca region. Our Organic blend is medium roast, with flavor hints of apple and laurel and an aroma of freshly tilled soil. It is a very dense, full-bodied coffee that is heavier on the palate and has a pleasant lingering aftertaste.

A Three Worlds Theory for the 21st Century

We still use terms like “1st World” and “3rd World,” referencing the so-called “Three-World Model” proposed by French demographer Alfred Sauvy in 1952 and the “Three Worlds Theory” developed by Mao Zedong.

We still use terms like “1st world problems” to describe the silly “struggles” of an over-privileged elite. And we use terms like “3rd world experience” to describe poor customer service or a shoddy product.

But, does the Three Worlds model work in the 21st century?

Not really.

To begin with, Sauvy’s model established the 1st world as the large, post-war Capitalist nations, the 2nd world as the post-war Communist nations and the 3rd World as non-aligned, post-colonial, emerging markets. With Communism largely dead, the original schema barely works. The world has moved on.

Mao’s model (the “Three Worlds Theory”) was a bit different. In Mao’s model the 1st World was composed of the “superpowers” – US, Soviet Union, etc. The 2nd World was composed of lesser powers. And the 3rd World was composed of post-colonial emerging markets. While Sauvy’s model emphasized ideology (Capitalism vs Communism) and so-called “blocs” (NATO vs Warsaw Pact), Mao’s model emphasized national power.

21st Century people reference these models frequently in their discussions without considering the underlying models or their implications.

BUT, the world has changed. And these changes have undermined the basic assumption of the Three World Model.

The basic assumption of these two models is that the Nation-State is THE unit of analysis. That assumption may have made sense in a world of national economies, but it makes much less sense in a post-globalization world in which ideas, goods, money and people circulate at a much greater rate.

It also makes much less sense in a rapidly urbanizing world in which megacities have emerged as their own force.

But, is the Nation-State the best way to view the world? Is it the right unit of analysis in the 21st Century?

The National Intelligence Council’s Global Trends 2030 Report addressed this issue head on and found a diversity of opinion among horizon scanners. While the nation-state may be one unit of analysis, (1) civilization-culture and (2) economic regions (or megacities) may also be valid.

As the authors of the Global Trends 2030 Report noted:

“Globalization has ushered in a new phase in the history of the state. Without question, the state still exists. The continuing economic volatility in the global economy and need for government intervention shows that the state is not going away. However, it would also be wrong to say that the powers of the state have remained the same. During the past 30 years, subnational government authorities and the roles of nonstate bodies have greatly expanded. This has been especially the case in Western democracies, but the increase in subnational power has spread far and wide; the West no longer has a monopoly. The expansion has been fueled by the formation of a transnational elite who have been educated at the same universities, work in many of the same multinational corporations or NGOs, and vacation at the same resorts. They believe in globalization, but one that relies on and benefits from personal initiative and empowerment.”

If the nation-state isn’t the best unit of analysis, then a 21st century model is needed.

We have left the 20th Century Three World Model behind and need a new model.

That new model should, instead, analyze the world in 3 non-state NETWORKS.

These NETWORKS are composed of metropolitan regions that operate economically at a global (1st), national (2nd) or regional (3rd) level.

1st Network: The global network of megacities that drive the world’s GDP, innovation and creative work. This network of megacities is linked by transportation, heavy air traffic, heavy data flows, global exchanges/bourses, media hubs, large universities and multi-national corporate headquarters. The people living in the 1st Network often have more in common with their colleagues in other megacities than in communities several hours of train travel away. The globalized economy has been remarkably good for them. They live and work, compete and collaborate in a global labor market. They may have economically de-linked from their fellow citizens in the 2nd and 3rd Networks, but they are still very much politically linked to their nation-state. They were surprised by Brexit and were surprised by Trump’s election. 1st Network citizens live in a cosmopolitan, megacity bubble. They travel to other megacities for work and play. 1st Network citizens want a mix of actors (nation-states, megacity Mayors, NGOs, MNCs) to solve global problems (like climate change).

2nd Network: Large, nationally significant metropolitan regions that are critical to their nation-state, but are not megacities. The 2nd Network is linked to the national economy via abundant domestic flights, but is NOT a global hub for corporate headquarters. 2nd Network metropolitan areas are large, but not fully globalized. They are economically powerful, but lack a critical mass of large corporations, research universities, media hubs, exchanges/bourses, etc. 2nd Network citizens are tied to a national economy and compete and collaborate in a national economy. They also live in a bubble, but their bubble is their nationally significant metro area. 2nd Network citizens want nation-state action to solve national and local problems.

3rd Network: Regionally significant metropolitan areas with citizens that live and work, compete and collaborate in a regional/local economy. 3rd Network metro areas are less populous, have fewer air travel options, and have fewer linkages to global megacities. 3rd Network areas may be high growth in emerging markets or slow growth/decline in the industrialized West. Citizens in the 3rd Network disproportionately drove Brexit and Trump’s surprising victory. In the 3rd Network West, globalization is NOT popular. They want nation-state action to solve local and national problems.

Applying this model to our current political environment has significant explanatory power. Moreover, it better explains the dynamic within and across nation-states.

At the moment, nationalist-populist leaders are attempting to revive the power of their nation-states in order to deliver for their supporters in the struggling 2nd and 3rd Networks. But, they still operate in a 3 network world. And the reverse is also true. 1st Network citizens and Mayors may have similar global views and priorities, but they still reside in nation-states. They may function like city states, but they need to manage across and within nations.

Whom To Listen To and When

In April of (2008), I spent two weeks in India following a meditation guru from town to town.

This was my fourth visit to India, but I consider it my first real one. The other three were too touristy. Two were lecture tours, and I stayed in the best hotels, with warm water and the most excellent services money can buy. The third was for a Maha Kumba Mella, which is a gathering of Hindus on the Ganges River every 144 years. Sidhus descend from their caves in the Himalayas, and while it was an interesting experience to see them, it was not day-to-day India.

This time it was different. I slept in an ashram, was driven from town to town in terrible traffic, ate with Indians on the floor, and meditated with them. At my age (71), it was not an easy experience, but the guru was older (80-something) and he held on well, so who am I to complain?

What did I learn?

The meditation I was practicing is called sahaj marg, which means “the natural way.” The practice is to focus on the heart. No mantra, no focusing on the breath or on a candle or whatever, just listen to the heart by slowing down the mind.

I joined this type of practice because I believed I needed it. First, being Jewish, I spend most of my time in my head, and it needed some rest. Second, because I saw my dearest relatives and friends sent to their deaths during World War II, my heart has been closed all these years and it needed opening.
What does it mean to “listen to the heart?” How do you know, when you meditate, which thoughts are of the mind and which of the heart? Thoughts are thoughts, right?

No. There is a difference. You can argue with thoughts of the mind. You might toss and turn, and debate with yourself. But when your heart speaks, there is no argument. There is no discussion. There is no “Why?” or “Why not?” You are complete. You are at peace with yourself. The answer to the question “Why?” is “Because,” and that’s it.

That brought me to the next insight: If you really listen to your heart when you make a decision and your heart does not give you the answer, it means that you are not ready to finalize your decision. This is a case where it is better not to make a decision at that point in time.

That brought me to an interesting conclusion: When you decide with your heart, you cannot make a mistake.

Why?

Well, what is a mistake? It is always a conclusion you come to after the fact, right? It is a feeling of remorse and a judgment that you should have decided differently. It leads to self-accusations: that perhaps you did not deliberate enough, that you did not listen to advice, that you ignored facts, etc. All this is in your head.

When you make a decision with your heart, you are at peace with yourself. If, after the fact, you discover that your decision did not work out as you expected, you can not feel remorse because at the time you made the decision you had no doubts as to what to do, therefore you could not have done better. The fact that it did not work out is now only of academic interest. You can analyze what can be learned from what happened, but there is no place for remorse. You were at peace when you decided, and that was it.

Coming to this peace of mind when you decide with your heart is not a logical conclusion that you have reached after endless debates, internally or with others. It is beyond logic. It gives you a sense of completion, of integration, that almost defies logic. That is how you should feel when you decide to get married. That decision should be made with all your heart, not as a result of analyzing the cost-value relationship or an optimization model. When you make a decision with all your heart, as is the usual expression, you have the feeling of being integrated with your decision totally, wholly–maybe even holy. Mind, body, emotions, and spirit all feel at peace, united.

How does one come to such peace–usually we say “peace of mind,” though it would be more accurate to say “peace of the total body ” which is really peace of the heart–especially if there is a difficult decision to be made? You can do it by meditating. When you meditate you do not get attached to thoughts. Thus, you do not get into endless arguments with yourself. Instead, the decision eventually and automatically emerges as an insight.

If that description leaves you wondering how this insight can happen, let me share with you a story told to me by my one of my colleagues at UCLA, Professor Will McWhinney, that demonstrates this point. When McWhinney was a student at Yale, the fraternities held a contest for best choir. McWhinney’s fraternity had the worst voices at the university, except for one person whose voice was a pure, evangelical tenor. So they devised the following performance: The whole choir got on stage and began to sing where each person sang a different melody, which produced total cacophony. Then, slowly, one by one, each member of the choir stopped singing, except for the tenor, whose voice became stronger and stronger until it was alone, pure and crystal clear and totally enchanting. They won first prize.

This story is analogous to what happens in meditation. You have many voices in your head competing with each other. The more difficult the decision is, the more voices you hear, which can overwhelm you. When you meditate, the voices calm down one by one, while your heart’s voice grows stronger and stronger, until you simply “hear” the answer to your question and feel at peace with your decision.
But not only the head and heart think. We often say, “I have a gut feeling,” as if the gut is doing some decision processing.

That fact brought me to think in (PAEI) terms. The (A) processing is in the head. The (I) is processed by the heart. Where is (P) then? Sunil my associate suggested that if we follow the chakras, it is below the belly button, where our sexual organs are. Their role is survival of the species. That is where we feel instinctively. That is where the fight-or-flight reaction is processed: When we get scared we tighten the rectum, and the pelvic floor muscles.

Some people think with only one part of their body. Those who only react to their instincts are the (P)s: Act first, think later (if at all). Some do not listen to their instincts and use only their brain: These are the (A)s. Some people are only (E)s: all ideas and exciting priorities without considering what the repercussions of these ideas could be. And some people are all heart: They let their feelings for fellow humans or animals or whatever be the exclusive factor that determines their decision. These are the (I)s.

When a person processes information with all his faculties, the first one to respond to a new situation is the (P): His instincts of self preservation urge him to do something. Then the left mind, (A), gets activated: “Let’s think about it.” Next the right side of the brain gets involved, the (E), bringing new ideas to the table, while all along the heart, (I) is crying out, “Hey, listen to me too.”

To put it another way, instinctively you have the urge to do one thing, (P), but you think, (A), that it might not be prudent to do it, so new ideas, (E), come to mind, while you constantly check with yourself to see whether you feel at peace with the decision, (I). All these voices run through you at the same time. It is like a committee meeting where all the different styles compete with one another for attention. It’s a pure mess. Thus it’s not strange that when you have a really big problem to solve you get physically and emotionally exhausted. Your whole body hurts.

There is a difference between processing the (P), (A), (E), and (I) roles–between processing information with your instincts, mind, gut, or heart.

In processing (P), (A), and (E) roles you try to manage the process as best you can: You debate with your gut feelings, you challenge your instincts, and argue with your thoughts. When processing (P), (A), and (E) , you “talk” to the various parts of your body. You disagree with them. You may even get mad at them. It is as if you are the center and they are on the outskirts.

With the heart, (I), it is different. You do not argue with the heart, you listen to the heart. It is as if you subject yourself to something bigger, more powerful, than you. You are not the center any more. You say, “My heart tells me…” Compare that to what you say when you activate your mind: “I have to think it over.” Thinking it over, and over again, means that you are having a debate.

Now the weird stuff: Assume that “out there” is a cosmic, total, ultimate data warehouse. But it is not just data or knowledge, it is the ultimate wisdom based on values, the ultimate truth. It is endless, fixed energy with consciousness. (For me, that is God.) To connect to this cosmic energy you need to open your heart, to listen to your heart. It is as if the heart is the way to connect to God.

How do you hear the heart? How do you listen to it? Through meditation. Not through prayer. Prayer is like trying to manipulate God, pleading and begging him to act. If he does not listen to your prayer you might feel cheated, angry, and deceived.

When you pray, you talk to God. In meditation you listen to God. When you pray you make requests. Perhaps meekly, but no matter how nicely it is packaged and how much you are offering to “pay,” that is, what sacrifices you are willing to make, it is like a purchase order. When you meditate you listen to what God wants from you, not what you want from God. That is the difference.

Listen to your heart. That is where the truth is. Listen to the heart and you will not feel you made a mistake when you decide. If your heart is not ready to decide, you are not ready.

How should you make a decision then?

How should you decide? Here is the optimal path, the road less traveled. This is the lifecycle I suggested for organizations in my Managing Corporate Lifecycles book: Start with (I). Start with your heart first. Ask your heart first what is the right thing to do. Then go get some ideas about what to do, (E), but in doing so do not violate what your heart dictates. Then check those ideas to see if they make sense, (A), and finally be ready to act, (P) but first go back to the heart and check if you are at peace.
If more people would start with their heart and not with their penis, (P), maybe there would be less war, less divorce, less crime. Maybe we ought to teach meditation in prisons. Scientific tests of transcendental meditation have shown that when a certain percentage of people in a community meditate, there is less crime.

In yoga, they say that the mind is a terrorist. It often terrorizes our bodies, making us do things that are not good for us. I once saw a bumper sticker that said, “Do not always believe what you think.” For me this is profound because we Jews not only honor the mind, we worship the mind. With our Talmudic minds, we often complicate problems even when they are simple. We overdo and over-complicate our decision making, sometimes to the point that we cannot solve the problem. We do not listen to our instincts very well. In order to survive two thousand years of persecution, I wonder if we have not closed our hearts except to each other.

3 Reasons to Serve Mindfulness With Your Next Meal

How often do you mindlessly shovel down your meal, focused on a blaring TV or a spreadsheet on your computer? For many of us, this scenario probably happens more times that we would like to admit. Our days are crammed full of to-dos and distractions, and it’s hard to take a break to sit and simply “be” with our meal.

However, your rapid, mindless eating could be causing more health issues than your post-meal indigestion. In this era of constant distraction and high-stress lifestyles, many studies have emerged demonstrating the negative effects that mindless eating has on our health. Other studies have highlighted the health-boosting effects that we’re losing when we cram in a quick meal. By not taking the time to fully immerse ourselves in a meal, we are taxing our body more than we are nourishing it. Let’s examine some of the effects that mindless eating may be having on our health:

  • Eating mindlessly makes us eat more: One study examined the desire to eat and the food intake of participants in four conditions: watching TV, driving, socializing, and eating alone. The researchers discovered that those watching television consumed more food than any of the other eating conditions. They also found that those eating socially tended to have an increased desire to eat, even after they ate sufficient food.

    These results demonstrate the importance of paying attention to what and how much you’re eating, especially when surrounded by distractions. Ideally, you should always turn off the TV or step away from your computer to reduce your risk of overeating. When you find yourself eating in a social situation, be sure to take moments throughout the meal to listen to your body – when you feel satiated, respect your body and say no to another shared plate or dessert, even if your dining companions are pressuring you to join in.

  • Eating mindlessly may deprive us of a better mood: A recent study looked at the effect that eating chocolate mindfully has on our mood. Participants were asked to eat chocolate either mindfully (listening to a recording that gave instructions how to eat the food slowly, purposefully, and mindfully) or mindlessly (told to eat the chocolate while awaiting further instructions). The control group ate crackers mindfully or mindlessly. The findings revealed that those who ate the chocolate mindfully had a significantly higher positive mood afterwards than those who ate it mindlessly.

    Fortunately, it’s easy to bring mindfulness into your meal and reap the mood-boosting benefits. While you’re eating, focus on all aspects of the food – the farmers and producers who brought the food to your plate, the various sensations of the food as you chew and swallow it, and the immediate effects it has on your body and mind. You may also try incorporating a gratitude practice into your eating for additional benefits.

  • Mindless eating may make us choose less healthy food options: Eating in front of the TV may do more than increase your portion size – it has also been linked to the food choices we make. The researchers discovered that families who ate in front of the TV chose less healthy foods than families who weren’t distracted by the TV. Even having the TV on in the background was linked to worse food decisions.

    The TV tempts us with commercials for fast food and unnourishing snack foods. Turning it off when you’re eating is as simple as pressing a button, but can have powerful effects on your food choices and your health.

Clearly, the first step of eating mindfully and reaping the health benefits is to create a distraction-free eating environment. For each meal, set aside 30 minutes of your day where you step away from your desk, power off your devices, and find a distraction-free place to indulge in your meal. Eat in a park outside if weather permits, or near a large window overlooking nature. Savor each bite of your meal, and tune into your body throughout the meal. Your meal should stop when your stomach indicates that it’s full, not when your plate is empty.

Finally, you may consider incorporating music into your eating routine to increase your mindfulness. One study found that listening to “smooth” music that matched the creaminess of the chocolate enhanced the creaminess and sweetness of the chocolate reported by participants. In your next meal, try matching your food with music – fresh, upbeat music to accompany your crisp salad, or a rich symphony with a heavy, saucy main – to see how it affects your perception and enjoyment of your meal.

Matteo Renzi Faces Defeat In Italian Constitutional Referendum: Exit Polls

ROME, Dec 4 (Reuters) – Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has lost a referendum on constitutional reform by a wide margin, exit polls showed on Sunday, throwing his future into doubt and opening the door to renewed political instability in Italy.

Renzi, who had promised to resign if his flagship project was defeated, is due to address the nation at around midnight (2300 GMT), government sources said.

An exit poll by the Piepoli Institute/IPR for state television station RAI, estimated the ‘No’ vote at 54-58 percent against 42-46 percent for ‘Yes’. Two other polls gave ‘No’ a similar lead of at least 10 points. Voting ended at 11 p.m.

The euro immediately fell against the dollar on the exit polls, slipping to $ 1.0580 from $ 1.0625.

If confirmed, the result would represent a fresh blow to the European Union which is struggling to overcome an array of crises and was eager for Renzi to continue his reform drive in the euro zone’s heavily indebted, third-largest economy.

Defeat could also prompt fresh market ructions, especially in the banking sector which has lost almost half its value this year on the Milan bourse, hit by fears over its huge exposure to bad loans accumulated during years of economic downturn.

Renzi, 41, took office in 2014 promising to shake up hidebound Italy and presenting himself as an anti-establishment “demolition man” determined to crash through a smothering bureaucracy and redraw the nation’s creaking institutions.

Sunday’s referendum, designed to hasten the legislative process by reducing the powers of the upper house Senate and regional authorities, was to have been his crowning achievement.

However, his reforms so far have made little impact, and the opposition 5-Star Movement has claimed the anti-establishment banner, tapping into a populist mood that saw Britons vote to leave the European Union and Americans elect Donald Trump president.

Under Italian law, Renzi had to call a referendum on his plans to overhaul the constitution, but it was his decision to pin his future to the outcome, arguing that if Italy was not willing to accept his recipe for change he should leave office.

This move turned the vote into a defacto plebiscite on Renzi himself, uniting disparate opposition forces in a fierce battle to unseat Italy’s youngest prime minister that played out over months of relentless campaigning.

If he does resign, it does not necessarily mean that he will vanish from the political stage, as happened in Britain when David Cameron quit as prime minister after his Brexit defeat.

President Sergio Mattarella could ask Renzi to reconsider, calling on his sense of responsibility at a time of great market uncertainty. If however he refuses, the head of state will open a round of consultations with party leaders to find a new prime minister, who will have to draw up a new electoral law.

As head of the largest party in parliament, Renzi would have a big say on who should succeed him.

After voting in Genoa earlier on Sunday, Beppe Grillo, founder of the anti-euro 5-star Movement which backs a ‘No’ vote, said the country needed to go to new elections as soon as possible. His party is running neck-and-neck with Renzi’s Democratic Party (PD) in the opinion polls.

The biggest immediate loser if the ‘No’ camp has indeed triumphed could be Italy’s third-largest bank, Monte dei Paschi di Siena, which is bowed by bad loans and is looking to raise 5 billion euros ($ 5.3 billion) this month to stave off collapse.

Investors are likely to shun the operation if political chaos prevails, meaning a state intervention will be needed to save it. Several other lenders also need a cash injection to stay afloat raising fears of a domino-effect crisis.

Economy Minister Pier Carlo Padoan sought to calm nervous markets on Friday, saying there was “no risk of a financial earthquake” if ‘No’ wins, though there may be “48 hours of turbulence.”

A Nov. 25 Reuters poll suggested investors would expect to demand an extra 25 basis points in yield to hold Italian debt over its German equivalent if the reform is rejected, with the euro dipping 1.25 percent.

The risk to stability, meanwhile, is enough to have the European Central Bank preparing to step in if needed.

The Power of Eloquence

Beautiful Words Have Power
by Lt. Gen. Clarence E. McKnight, Jr.

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging symbol,” St. Paul wrote in his first letter to the Corinthians two thousand years ago. “If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have faith that I can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor, and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.” Paul bequeathed us faith, hope and love -these three — “but the greatest of these,” he said, “is love.”
Paul passed away, as we all must in our time, but he continues to enrich the human experience with his beautiful words that are timeless. It should be noted that when Paul spoke of love, he was not talking about romance between a man and a woman, but rather love for our fellow human beings. Interestingly, the scholars working for King James translated that key phrase as “faith, hope and charity” which I believe came closer to Paul’s meaning.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident,” wrote Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence two centuries ago, “that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Jefferson and his editors among the Founding Fathers toyed with that last one. Some wanted to say “life, liberty and property.” But they hesitated to assert that everyone was entitled by God to property. I am glad they chose “pursuit of happiness” instead of “pursuit of property,” for the words are beautiful in their vague simplicity. Like the words of St. Paul, they have stood the test of time and still inspire people.
Some are troubled by Jefferson’s eloquence about liberty because of his hypocrisy as a slave owner, and he was certainly aware of that even within the context of his own time. Jefferson knew slavery was evil and acknowledged as much, saying it alarmed him “like a fire bell in the night” as if he had foreseen the consequences that would ensue for that failure to deal with the worst blot on our nation’s history. That was left for another great wordsmith to deal with.
“Fourscore and seven years ago, our forefathers brought forth on this continent a new nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal,” opined Abraham Lincoln at the dedication of the military cemetery at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in 1863. “We are now engaged in a great Civil War testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.” He concluded his short address with the hope that “government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth.”
St. Paul, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln shared a gift for beautiful words – constructing sentences that soar beyond mere communication to touch the heart and inspire humanity to rise above its mean estate. It is difficult to imagine President-elect Trump joining this company – tweets do not often sustain eloquence – but you never know. If he can summon President Reagan’s speechwriter Peggy Noonan back to Washington, anything is possible.
Lt. Gen. Clarence E. “Mac” McKnight, Jr., (USA-Ret) is the author of “From Pigeons to Tweets: A General Who Led Dramatic Change in Military Communications,” published by The History Publishing Company.

How To Break A Bad Habit — For Good

2016-11-25-1480102142-4997972-HowToBreakABadHabitForGoodHP

Have you ever tried to break a bad habit, only to give up in frustration? The problem isn’t that you’re weak or that the bad habit is too ingrained; in all likelihood, you just gave up too soon.

Researchers at University College, London, found that it takes 66 days for a new habit to form. Likewise, as long as there is no physical addiction involved, it takes 66 days for you to shake a bad habit. But before you can develop the motivation to stick it out for that long, you need to understand how bad habits form in the first place.

Bad habits are formed and reinforced via the habit loop. First, something triggers you to initiate an undesired behavior. Maybe you’re feeling stressed, so you decide to numb out on Facebook for an hour or eat a whole bag of Flamin’ Cheetos. The trigger event is whatever puts this idea in your head. The second step is the behavior itself. Your brain says, “Sure, you deserve some Flamin’ Cheetos,” so you dig in.

2016-11-25-1480102339-1324426-HowToBreakABadHabitForGoodHP2

The third step — and this part is crucial — is the reward. The behavior has to reward you in some way. That doesn’t mean it’s good for you or that it’s smart, just that it does something that your brain likes. Numbing out on Facebook might help you forget your problems for a while or to put off something that you don’t want to do, and we all know, all too well, the reward that comes from eating a bag of junk food. For better or worse, these rewards increase the likelihood that you’ll repeat the behavior.

Once you repeat a behavior enough times, the habit loop becomes so automated that you don’t even think about it anymore. Instead of making a conscious decision to procrastinate, you just automatically pull up Facebook as soon as you sit down at your desk or you’re digging into the Cheetos before you even realize that you’re feeling stressed.

Once a habit becomes automatic, it’s a lot harder to break–and that’s why you’re probably failing if you’re not giving yourself 66 days to wean yourself off it.

Sixty-six days might seem like a long time, but there are specific stages you have to go through that will make the process feel much shorter. Let’s take a look at these.

Days 1-10: Look Inward

It’s usually pretty obvious which bad habits are causing the most problems in your life–the ones that keep coming up in performance appraisals or sparking arguments with your spouse. Once you’ve identified a habit to change, the real challenge lies in understanding your triggers, and that can be harder than it sounds, especially if the habit has become so ingrained that you do it subconsciously. If you give it enough thought, you’ll get to the bottom of it. Maybe you keep getting tickets for speeding, and you realize that you drive too fast when you leave work in a bad mood, or maybe you snack when you’re stressed. Looking inward to explore the source of the habit you’re trying to break makes breaking that habit possible. The first 10 days of trying to break the habit will provide substantial insight into the source of the habit, should you choose to look. Building self-awareness is critical to emotional intelligence, and your act of introspection will serve you in many ways beyond breaking your bad habit.

Days 11-40: Spread the Word

Accountability is crucial in breaking bad habits. In this stage, you create a very vocal accountability network by telling everybody you can about the habit you’re trying to break, and the more vocal you are about it, the more likely people are to call you out when you slip up. Let them know that you really want them to say something. Just remember that you might have to keep reminding them–it’s just as easy for them to forget and backslide as it is for you to do so.

Days 41-66: Mind Your Relapse Triggers

As you head for the home stretch, be ready to make some mistakes — it happens to everybody. Just be on the lookout for common threads running through those mistakes. If you tend to relapse in a certain situation, you’d be smart to avoid that trigger completely until you feel that your bad habit is really extinguished. Keeping your triggers from surprising you when it feels like you’ve kicked the habit is typically the difference between success and failure this late in the process.

Day 67: Reward Yourself

Sure, you could say that breaking the habit is its own reward, but why pass up an opportunity to celebrate? Just don’t celebrate by indulging in the habit you worked so hard to break! You should also use this opportunity to reflect and select the next habit you’re going to break.

Bringing It All Together

You’re not weak, stupid, or lazy if you have a hard time breaking bad habits. There are psychological factors that make this process challenging for everyone, but the very science behind what makes habits hard to break also provides a research-supported method for doing it. Focus on one habit at a time and follow these steps and the timetable that goes with them, and your chances of success will go through the roof.

How do you break bad habits? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

Donald Trump’s Company Denies Reports Of Taiwan Hotel Development

WASHINGTON ― President-elect Donald Trump on Friday broke with decades of U.S. foreign policy by speaking with the leader of Taiwan, a move that angered China, which claims sovereignty over the island. But the phone call has also raised additional questions about Trump’s potential business interests in Taiwan.

In November, the mayor of Taoyuan, a municipality that holds Taiwan’s main airport, told Taiwanese media that a representative of the Trump Organization had traveled to the island and expressed interest in building a hotel there. The Guardian reported that the representative, only known as Ms. Chen, expressed interest in a new development near Taiwan’s airport. The Guardian did not confirm Chen’s association with the Trump organization. 

The New York Times also found Facebook posts from Anne-Marie Donoghue, global director of transient sales & Asia for Trump hotels, in which she posted about being in Taipei for a work trip.

In a statement, the Trump Organization said it had no plans to expand into Taiwan.

“There are no plans for expansion into Taiwan nor are any of our executives planning a visit. The rumors of a planned development in Taiwan are simply false,” Jennifer Rodstrom, a Trump Organization spokeswoman, wrote in an email. “There have been no authorized visits to Taiwan on behalf of our brand for the purposes of development nor are there any active conversations.”

Donoghue did not respond to a request for comment on the nature of her trip.

Trump has said that he will separate himself from his business interests before he is sworn in, but has not said how exactly he plans to do that. He faces numerous potential conflicts of interest around the world.

5 Things That Will Make You Much Happier

2016-11-18-1479509543-1079096-5ThingsThatWillMakeYouMuchHappierHP

There’s enough advice on happiness floating around out there to make your head spin. Yet, this is understandable, as everyone is different. What makes one person happy might make another miserable.

In the face of so much contradictory, and often subjective, advice, what are you supposed to do if you want to live a happier life? Just forget about all that subjective advice and focus your energy and attention on science-proven facts.


“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” – Dalai Lama

UCLA neuroscience researcher Alex Korb has spent a great deal of time studying the effects of different happiness strategies on the brain. His findings have a lot to teach us about what actually works when it comes to boosting happiness.

Korb’s research demonstrated that your thoughts–and the emotions you feel in response to those thoughts–have a profound impact on surprising areas of your brain.

Guilt and shame, for example, activate the brain’s reward center, which explains why we have such a strong tendency to heap guilt and shame upon ourselves. Likewise, worrying increases activity in the prefrontal cortex (the rational brain), which is why worrying can make you feel more in control than doing nothing at all.

1. Gratitude creates happiness. I’m not advocating worry, guilt, and shame as the path to happiness. The illustration shows why we tend to succumb to thoughts that fuel these emotions. The real neural antidepressant is gratitude. Gratitude boosts levels of serotonin and dopamine–the brain’s happy chemicals and the same chemicals targeted by antidepressant medications. The striking thing about gratitude is that it can work even when things aren’t going well for you. That’s because you don’t actually have to feel spontaneous gratitude in order to produce chemical changes in your brain; you just have to force yourself to think about something in your life that you appreciate. This train of thought activates your brain to make you feel happier.

2. Labeling negative feelings dilutes their power. There is an amazing amount of power in simply labeling your negative emotions. In one study, participants underwent fMRI scans of their brains while they labeled negative emotions. When they named these emotions, the brain’s prefrontal cortex took over and the amygdala (where emotions are generated) calmed down. This effect doesn’t just work with your own emotions; labeling the emotions of other people calms them down too, which is why FBI hostage negotiators frequently rely on this technique.

3. Making decisions feels good. Similar to naming emotions, making decisions engages the prefrontal cortex, which calms the amygdala and the rest of the limbic system. The key is to make a “good enough” decision. Trying to make the perfect decision causes stress. We’ve always known that, but now there’s scientific research that explains why. Making a “good enough” decision activates the dorsolateral prefrontal areas of the brain, calming emotions down and helping you feel more in control. Trying to make a perfect decision, on the other hand, ramps up ventromedial frontal activity–which basically means your emotions get overly involved in the decision-making process.

4. It helps you to lend a hand.Taking the time to help your colleagues not only makes them happy but also makes you happy. Helping other people gives you a surge of oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine, all of which create good feelings. In a Harvard study, employees who helped others were 10 times more likely to be focused at work and 40% more likely to get a promotion. The same study showed that people who consistently provided social support to others were the most likely to be happy during times of high stress. As long as you make certain that you aren’t overcommitting yourself, helping others is sure to have a positive influence on your happiness.

5. Our brains are wired for touch. Humans are social animals, to the point that our brains react to social exclusion in the same way that they react to physical pain, with activity in the anterior cingulate and insula. Similarly, our brains are hardwired to interpret touch as social acceptance. Touch is one of the primary stimuli for releasing oxytocin, which calms the amygdala and, in turn, calms emotions. There are even studies that show that holding hands with a loved one actually reduces the brain’s response to pain. You might think that’s bad news for people who are socially isolated, but studies show that a massage increases serotonin by as much as 30%. Touch reduces stress hormones, decreases the perception of pain, improves sleep, and reduces fatigue.

Bringing It All Together

Kolb’s research highlights just how amazing the brain is, and he summarized his findings succinctly when he said, “Everything is interconnected. Gratitude improves sleep. Sleep reduces pain. Reduced pain improves your mood. Improved mood reduces anxiety, which improves focus and planning. Focus and planning help with decision-making. Decision-making further reduces anxiety and improves enjoyment. Enjoyment gives you more to be grateful for, which keeps that loop of the upward spiral going. Enjoyment makes it more likely you’ll exercise and be social, which, in turn, makes you happier.”

We’ll Remember Cuba’s Ebola Compassion Long After Castro’s Death

While the Cuban government’s accomplishments and failures are still being tallied in the days following Fidel Castro’s death on Nov. 25, the island nation’s health care system is one achievement expected to stand the test of history. 

One striking example of the country’s unique health footprint: For a nation with only 11 million people, Cuba sent an unparalleled number of medical personnel to fight the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the Wall Street Journal reported in 2014.

When Ebola spread through West Africa in 2014, Cuba announced that it would send more than 460 doctors and nurses to West Africa. The epidemic ultimately killed 11,310 people, more than any previous outbreak, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

Ultimately Cuba deployed approximately 265 medical personnel to Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia, according to the World Health Organization.

For comparison’s sake, in November 2014, President Obama promised just 65 health professionals, supported by 4,000 U.S. troops. (WHO said it’s difficult to track actual personnel deployed from the U.S. because they weren’t a unified group like the Cubans were. Americans may have volunteered with nongovernmental organizations, for example.)

“[Cuba] has become something like the world’s first responder to international crises in recent years,” Jon Lee Anderson wrote in The New Yorker in 2014. Indeed, Cuba’s 50,000 roving medical professionals stationed in more than 60 countries are often the first foreign health workers at catastrophes around the world. Cuban doctors, for example cared for almost 40 percent of victims during Haiti’s devastating 2010 earthquake, according to The Guardian. The deployments are the result of a longtime Cuban program to send health care workers abroad as a way to boost its image and to trade services for goods for the embargoed island.

The Cuban medical response is built on a larger culture of population health. Cuban doctors practice prevention-oriented primary care and are responsible for improving the overall health of their patient populations. Cuba also has one of the best doctor-to-population ratios in the world, meaning the country spends far less money per person on health care costs than does the United States, but it boasts a better child mortality rate and similar life expectancy

According to the World Bank, in 2010 Cuba had 6.7 doctors per 1,000 people, compared with the United States’ 2.5 doctors per 1,000 people.

“Unlike students trained in the U.S. or Western Europe, Cuban students are trained to improve population health status,” Dr. C. William Keck, professor emeritus at Northeast Ohio Medical University, previously told The Huffington Post. 

“We certainly aren’t here. When I went to medical school, I was taught to do battle with disease one patient at a time. You dealt with what came in the door. You didn’t focus much on the community. It’s a much different approach,” said Keck, who is a member of the Medical Education Cooperation with Cuba, a nonprofit that promotes U.S.-Cuba health collaborations.

That dedication to community health extends beyond Cuba’s borders. 

“We know what can happen. We know we’re going to a hostile environment,” Cuban doctor Leonardo Fernandez told Reuters before he left to fight Ebola in West Africa in 2014.

“But it is our duty. That’s how we’ve been educated. This little bit that we have, when people need it, we are capable of sharing. It’s a basic concept.”

Breitbart Boycotted Kellogg’s, So Here Are Breitbart Brand Alternatives

This week, Kellogg’s decided to pull its advertising from the conservative news site Breitbart because of its racist, sexist and anti-Semitic content. Kellogg’s joins a growing number of companies, including Allstate and Warby Parker, who are cutting ties with Breitbart.

Breitbart shot back by launching a counter-campaign using the hashtag #DumpKelloggs. But now that Breitbart readers no longer use Kellogg’s products, the news organization may want to fill that void with their own branded goods.

Here are some Breitbart-branded products that Breitbart readers will hopefully find every bit as appetizing as their Kellogg’s rival!

WATCH: Embracing the Mystery (Not Having All the Answers)

It can be very frustrating when we don’t know what to do… how to handle certain situations… what the future might bring. But, that’s how life is sometimes – we’re never going to know everything (unless you are Dr. Bernofsky…). So, we can let that be a source of energy-draining upset, or we can accept it. Maybe even embrace it. I hope this will help you do so.

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Focus on Ethics in Global-Health Programs

By Jill Raufman, M.S., M.P.H.,

Ten years ago I was working with some friends on a joint project at the Central Nairobi YMCA. In a park on the outskirts of town one afternoon, I watched as a group of kids from a nearby orphanage–dressed up in party clothes–came into the area with a group of non-Kenyan sponsors. The well-meaning adults had their arms around some of the children and were clearly trying to show them a fun time. All seemed well, but what I will never forget is the look of fear and discomfort on the faces of the children. The sponsors were clearly “voluntourists“–vacationers working on behalf of “good causes.” Their intentions might have been good, but I could tell from the children’s faces that they felt completely uncomfortable.

My experience in Kenya played a major factor in my decision to work in the global-health field. At Albert Einstein College of Medicine’s Global Health Center, I was pleased to meet medical students passionate about the field. Later, as director of the Global Health Fellowship program (through which some 100 medical students participate in global-health projects each year), I came to see how important cultural humility is to the overall student global-health experience.

Cultural humility, as I once heard noted medical anthropologist Dr. Paul Farmer say at a conference, is recognizing that one cannot even think about being culturally competent until one has lived in a place for about 20 years. It is a continual process that, in the context of health professionals, can be defined as becoming aware of how people’s cultures can affect health behaviors. Physicians can in turn use this awareness to cultivate sensitive approaches in treating patients. All of this requires self-reflection and self-critique. Students need to consider possible power imbalances when cultural differences between doctors and patients may have an impact on patients’ clinical outcomes.

When I send students abroad for global-health experiences in low-income countries, they–without exception–return with a revised, more empathic and culturally humble way of relating to their patients, and, for example, are more accepting of traditional health concepts and medicines.

At home and away
Preparation and post-trip conversations are the keys to success in these experiences. The Global Health Fellowship encompasses a number of events, from predeparture training to individual meetings with students upon their return. The initial training includes, among other topics, an interactive session about ethical issues to be considered during the fellowship, cultural humility and how to behave when working in another culture. The overarching message we convey to our students is “Do not do there what you cannot do here.” They understand that this is a precept set in stone.

When the students return, we discuss what they’ve learned. Increasingly often, students have mentioned seeing things that have made them uncomfortable following their experience in clinics working with underserved patients. For example, they’ve encountered unsupervised students treating patients, been offered opportunities to perform procedures that they are absolutely not qualified to do and learned of projects that are not sustained after their departure.

A couple of years ago, a student asked if there was an organization responsible for overseeing these programs where she could report events that bothered her, or practices she considered unethical. I reached out to my counterparts. The answer was no; a number of institutions and organizations had developed guidelines, but there wasn’t any single group responsible for oversight.

Improving program ethics
Now, two years later, we are about to host a conference at Einstein where one of the sessions will focus on the ethics of offering students short-term experiences in global health (STEGH). Conference participants will organize to choose from among the many guidelines that have been created, and develop an assessment and reporting tool for students and faculty.

We plan to produce a white paper whose results will be widely distributed, and will also work with the Consortium of Universities for Global Health, the largest such organization, of which most global-health centers are members, to help with the distribution and adoption of the results. We hope this will lead to a more ethical, productive and balanced experience for the students and for our partners in the host countries.

Currently, almost two-thirds of matriculating medical students expect to participate in a STEGH during medical school. The Association of American Medical Colleges’ 2013 survey of graduating U.S. medical school students found that 30.2 percent had participated in global-health experiences, an increase of nearly 25 percent since the first graduation questionnaire was administered in 1978. The VolunTourism Institute predicts a figure of 20 million STEGHs by 2020.

With the rising number of global-health students and tourists poised to travel, learn, and help–all with good intentions–it is increasingly important to have widely accepted and followed guidelines for operation of these programs. The tools produced at our upcoming conference will, I hope, become a model for equitable and sustainable projects to be followed by academic and tourist institutions alike.

Trump Voters Disappointed He Won’t Seek To Prosecute Hillary Clinton

Americans who voted for Donald Trump think his transition team is making a bad decision by backing away from his threat to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account and server while she was secretary of state, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov survey.

The president-elect won’t seek to pursue criminal charges against his rival, his former campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, told MSNBC early last week. Trump himself later made less definitive comments to the same effect, telling the New York Times that he doesn’t “want to hurt the Clintons.” 

The about-face drew some ire from both sides of the aisle, with opponents calling it an attack on the Department of Justice’s independence  and the generally Trump-friendly Breitbart News labeling the decision a “broken promise.”




Few Americans overall think an investigation would be a good idea. Just 34 percent would favor Trump’s appointing a special prosecutor, while 42 percent would oppose him doing so, and 24 percent aren’t sure.

Many of Trump’s voters, however, aren’t yet willing to retire the “lock her up” chants. Sixty-eight percent of those who voted for Trump said they’d favor asking a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton. Among that group, 42 percent said that it’s “very important” that Trump launch such an investigation, with a total 79 percent saying it’s at least “somewhat important” to them.

When told that Trump has seemingly decided not to have Clinton investigated, those who voted for him said by a 7-point margin ― 36 percent to 29 percent — that he’s made a bad decision. Perhaps caught between a desire to punish the Democratic nominee and an unwillingness to criticize Trump, a substantial portion, 36 percent, said they’re not sure.

They’re are evenly split on whether or not he’s breaking a campaign promise, with 37 percent saying that he has, 37 percent that he has not and 26 percent that they don’t know whether or not he’s doing so.

Still, Trump’s voters largely feel that he’s so far carried out what he’s promised to do. Americans who voted for the president-elect said by a 40-point margin, 45 percent to 5 percent, that he’s so far living up to his campaign promises, with the remaining 50 percent saying it’s still too early to tell. By contrast, just 6 percent of Clinton voters think Trump is fulfilling his promises, with 45 percent saying that he is not and 49 percent that it’s too early to know.

The HuffPost/YouGov poll consisted of 1,000 completed interviews conducted Nov. 24-28 among U.S. adults, using a sample selected from YouGov’s opt-in online panel to match the demographics and other characteristics of the adult U.S. population.

The Huffington Post has teamed up with YouGov to conduct daily opinion polls.You can learn more about this project and take part in YouGov’s nationally representative opinion polling. Data from all HuffPost/YouGov polls can be found hereMore details on the polls’ methodology are available here.

Most surveys report a margin of error that represents some, but not all, potential survey errors. YouGov’s reports include a model-based margin of error, which rests on a specific set of statistical assumptions about the selected sample, rather than the standard methodology for random probability sampling. If these assumptions are wrong, the model-based margin of error may also be inaccurate. Click here for a more detailed explanation of the model-based margin of error.

Stop Expecting Your Life to Be Like a Television Show

What is a hard thing to do in life? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Matthew Manning, on Quora:

What is a hard thing to do in life? Understanding that your life is not a television show.

One of the hardest things to understand about my life has been the fact that it is not episodic. That is to say, most of the time life is not full of “important stuff.” My life isn’t a television show. It is mostly the stuff that happens between each episode.

Most of the time, important stuff happens when you least expect it, and when you’re barely ready for it. The majority of your time will be spent between the important stuff. This includes:

  • Doing laundry.
  • Folding laundry.
  • Grocery shopping.
  • Paying bills.
  • Picking small crumbs up from your floor so as to delay vacuuming.

This is difficult to swallow as you get older and cease to be ushered from event to event and hand-delivered meaningful experiences. Most of the time, we’re doing what has to be done in order to better position ourselves for what we wish to do.

If this sounds like drudgery, that’s because it is. There are some pretty salient myths about the joy of daily life, and I think we are lead to believe that a happy life is one filled each day with intrigue and adventure. We are not the Great Gatsby. Most of my day is a grind – and I actually enjoy my job.

If you can’t be happy with the things in front of you, no great plot line is going to save you from that.

And if you figure out how to do that, tell me how.

These Badass Women Motorcyclists Are Delivering Breast Milk To Babies In Need

Julie Bouchet-Horwitz was sitting in Manhattan traffic one day when she noticed motorcyclists weaving through the cars to forge ahead. The image struck Bouchet-Horwitz, who is the executive director of the New York Milk Bank (NYMB), and gave her a new idea for her organization: breast milk delivery by motorcycle.

“I had read about blood bikers who deliver blood and milk in and out of London,” she told The Huffington Post. “So I did a Google search looking for a female motorcycle club and found the Sirens Women’s Motorcycle Club of New York City.”

Bouchet-Horwitz called Sirens president, Jen Baquial, who loved the idea and invited a NYMB coordinator to present their proposal at a club meeting. After a unanimous vote in favor of participating, the “Milk Riders” program was born. 

Like the other 20 or so milk banks in the U.S., the NYMB is a nonprofit organization that collects donated breast milk from local mothers. After testing, processing and pasteurizing the milk to ensure it’s safe for consumption, the NYMB delivers it to parents who are unable to provide breast milk to their babies.

The Sirens’ breast milk delivery system is twofold. One aspect involves riders retrieving milk from the NYMB’s 22 depots ― collection sites where pre-screened donors can drop off their breast milk. The donor milk is frozen and stored until the volunteers deliver it to the NYMB facility in Hastings-on-Hudson.

The other procedure is the delivery of processed and pasteurized breast milk from the milk bank facilities to hospitals and private homes. The NYMB uses WhatsApp to message Sirens volunteers in the delivery range requesting their services. 

“In both transportation cases, the milk is packaged by the depot or the NYMB per regulatory guidelines, and we pretty much strap it down to our motorcycles and zip away,” Baquial told HuffPost, noting that volunteers also show proof of insurance and a driver’s license before each run.

“We are volunteering our time and machines,” she added. “However, the NYMB does reimburse us for tolls and mileage.” If no Sirens are available for a run, then NYMB staff or FedEx Express deliver the milk. 

“The logistics are still a morphing a bit as the NYMB increases production and the need and accessibility grows,” said Baquial.

Bouchet-Horwitz estimates the Sirens have delivered “hundreds if not thousands of ounces” of donated breast milk to babies whose own mothers’ milk is either unavailable or in low supply.

Transporting milk to babies in the NICU has been an especially moving aspect of the Milk Riders’ work. 

“After speaking with Julie and learning about the amazing work that the NYMB has been doing to get life-saving breast milk to babies that need it, I was immediately excited and wanted to let the club know about it,” Baquial recalled. 

The Sirens Women’s Motorcycle Club of NYC was founded in 1986 after the founding members placed an ad in the Village Voice seeking women who rode motorcycles. 

“Carving out a space for women in a male-dominated culture of motorcycling was the goal,” Baquial explained. “We are women motorcyclists first. Any woman, any bike.”

The Sirens come together for group rides that vary in distance and destination. They also organize and lead the motorcycle contingent in New York’s LGBT Pride March every summer.

“Our membership of about 50 women is beautifully diverse in age, race, profession, sexual orientation and personal style, but we all share the love of motorcycling in common and that is what bonds our sisterhood,” Baquial said.

Another big initiative is their annual benefit ride, in honor of club member Stacy Erra, who died of AIDS-related complications in 1989. 

“There were very few resources, especially for women, during the epidemic,” Baquial explained. “In her name every year, the club picks a different recipient for any funds we can raise.” 

Past recipients have included the Ali Forney Center, the Women and AIDS Research Program, Hale House and Callen-Lorde Community Health Center. This year, they chose the New York Milk Bank.

“As a part of our annual Stacy Erra Benefit Ride, I led a group of about 7 of us up to New Paltz, where a depot had a freezer full of donor breast milk that needed to be transported down to Hastings,” said Baquial. The group then met up with more Sirens for the scenic ride to Hastings, where they toured the NYMB facility and spent time with Bouchet-Horwitz and her staff. 

“It was such a fun day!” Baquial said.

“We are a small group of women, but we all know that every little bit counts,” she added. “Riding our motorcycles together gives us immense joy, but doing service in the community together gives us purpose.”

The Sirens’ contribution has been particularly helpful to the NYMB, which launched a CrowdRise fundraiser this fall with a goal of $ 291,000. 

“We opened this summer in a small space in a nursing facility and have been astounded at how much milk we have received from women in New York,” Bouchet-Horwitz explained. “We have collected tens of thousands of ounces of milk. We need more equipment, more staff and more space.”

The NYMB executive director told HuffPost she’s incredibly grateful for the Sirens’ volunteer work. 

“I didn’t look for a male motorcycle club ― I immediately thought of women because of the female connection between all of us,” she said. “It’s women who are donating milk and nursing their babies.”

Ultimately, Bouchet-Horwitz believes the partnership points to one simple, unifying theme: “It’s all about women helping women helping babies.”

One Woman’s Life in Discovery

2016-11-30-1480532021-185701-IMG_6419.jpg
Physician, pilot, poet, and musician Nancy Elliott Sydnam lives in discovery every day. Originally from Washington State, she spent the last 20 years of her career serving the health care needs of Native villagers in some of the most remote parts of Alaska, applying her medical knowledge and unstoppable ingenuity in situations where conditions were often bleak and resources minimal. She was 81 when she retired. (Read more)

The following mini-movie, narrated by Nancy, explores the idea of listening outside of herself and facing the world with optimism, purpose, and intention to learn every day. It is the first of many examples that we will be sharing of how to Live in Discovery.

Nancy Sydnam’s book, Sideways Rain (Hardscratch Press, 2012), recounts her years of adventure, wonder, and close calls as an itinerant doctor in the Aleutian and Pribilof Islands. It is almost impossible to understand from a small excerpt, but this short passage provides a glimpse into the life and perspectives of this amazing woman.

“Bach Violin Concerto in E” with Mutter is just right. (Oh, thank you Harold Borofsky for the wonders you have taped for me.) I have had a whole day of feeling incompetent for these huge tasks. Alexay is still in cardiac failure. His oxygen saturations are OK, but he hasn’t lost any fluid pounds and still looks awful. We are out of IV Lasix. The weather bad so no flights. I have him on oral Lasix and started Prednisone today. Meanwhile, the gravida three, VBAC, is in early labor and due in 2 1/2 weeks. The danger is that if allowed to labor she may split her previous uterine scar and bleed to death in minutes. She looked at me with big eyes this afternoon and said, “I’m afraid to die.” I can do as well as anyone out here to keep that from happening, but we have no blood. (Read more)

On World AIDS Day, Let’s Confront The Challenging Problem Of HIV/AIDS In The Black Gay Community With Renewed Honesty And Action

In the spring of 1986, I found myself in the intensive care unit at Boston’s Tufts New England Medical Center. I was the only person visiting a friend who just five days prior had been diagnosed with pneumocystis pneumonia. At the time, this type of pneumonia was known as a difficult to treat, opportunistic infection. It was also an indicator that my friend had AIDS. I listened to the respirator that helped him breath, and watched helplessly as his life ebbed away. I had no idea that this was not to be just one heartbreaking loss, but rather the beginning of a period of intense grief that would last for years, as countless of my friends died of the disease.

In those very early days, there was little outreach being done about AIDS in the Black community. In fact, it was hard to find any information at all. But then I met Larry Kessler, who had founded the Boston AIDS Action Committee . I first became involved as a volunteer, specifically to get the word out into communities of color.

There I met other Black gay men and we formed support groups specifically for Black gay men. It was so desperately needed. Due to the stigma of AIDS, many of my friends’ families were unwilling to admit what was happening to their loved ones when they got sick. After they died, family members often refused to acknowledge the cause. My friends and I quickly learned to speak in code about “cancer funerals” when we were with our extended families, in our churches, or out in the community.

When we were in more inclusive and safer gay spaces, such as local gay bars and clubs, we found that there too, few people wanted to talk about AIDS. Although the intersection of race and AIDS was acknowledged at AIDS Action, it was obvious that Black gay men were more likely to get sick and die faster than White gay men. We needed to give each other support and help find ways to get around some of the race-based barriers we faced in getting information, much less access to healthcare.

Three decades later, that greater vulnerability to HIV among Black gay men still exists. Last year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control reported great news: rates of new HIV diagnoses had dropped 19 percent between 2005 and 2014. But new diagnoses were up among Black gay men by 22 percent, and had increased an astounding 87 percent for young Black gay men aged 13-24 years old. If current HIV diagnoses rates persist, about 1 in 2 black men who have sex with men (MSM) and 1 in 4 Latino MSM in the United States will be diagnosed with HIV during their lifetime, according to a new analysis by researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The offensive trope that Black gay men are more likely to contract HIV because they take greater sexual risks has been thoroughly debunked by careful study. The simple truth is that racism has played, and continues to play, a significant role in the lives of Black gay men making them more vulnerable to HIV. Historically, as a community, Black gay men have had much lower rates of health insurance coverage, and when the coverage was there, the role that implicit bias plays in some parts of the healthcare delivery system resulted in poorer health outcomes for people of color generally.

Practically speaking, this means that Black gay men living with HIV are less likely to have suppressed the virus with medication and are more likely to transmit HIV to a sexual partner. This helps explain the higher rates of HIV among gay men of color.

The work of raising awareness, and eliminating barriers to healthcare and medicine is far from over. Here’s where we must do better:

  • Getting Black gay & MSMs tested for HIV and treated with culturally sensitive and informed medical interventions is critical to lowering rates of HIV.
  • Encourage sexually active Black gay men who do not have HIV to ask their doctor about PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis), an anti-retroviral medication that, if taken daily, makes it nearly impossible to acquire HIV.
  • Just as important, although more difficult to achieve, is reducing racism and homophobia, both explicit and implicit, among healthcare providers and support staff. A 2015 study published in the American Journal of Public Health found that nearly a third (29 percent) of Black gay and bisexual men said that they had encountered racist or homophobic behavior in healthcare settings.

This Little Story About A Young Ivanka Trump’s Lemonade Stand Sure Is Something

The New Yorker’s Jia Tolentino has done us all the good service of leafing through Ivanka Trump’s The Trump Card, a 2009 self-help book that allows readers to understand how to get ahead in life with nothing more than a millionaire father and a world-famous surname. 

Tolentino’s story is filled with eyebrow-raising anecdotes straight from the mouth, or pen, or laptop, or ghostwriter, of an Ivanka Trump who, on the day of the book’s release, was weeks away from turning 28 years old. But one paragraph in particular stands out as especially, er, quite something.

When Ivanka was a kid, she got frustrated because she couldn’t set up a lemonade stand in Trump Tower. “We had no such advantages,” she writes, meaning, in this case, an ordinary home on an ordinary street. She and her brothers finally tried to sell lemonade at their summer place in Connecticut, but their neighborhood was so ritzy that there was no foot traffic. “As good fortune would have it, we had a bodyguard that summer,” she writes. They persuaded their bodyguard to buy lemonade, and then their driver, and then the maids, who “dug deep for their spare change.” The lesson, she says, is that the kids “made the best of a bad situation.” 

Oh, yes. The image of the Trump family’s bodyguard, driver and maids having to hand over their own money to satisfy Ivanka’s desire to make “the best of a bad situation” would be quite enough to elicit some sort of emotion from most people. But add in the use of the word “advantages” to describe living within less affluent means, and the story becomes all the sweeter.

Now, there’s one more line in the paragraph, so why don’t we check in there?

In another early business story, she and her brothers made fake Native American arrowheads, buried them in the woods, dug them up while playing with their friends, and sold the arrowheads to their friends for five dollars each.

You can and should read Tolentino’s full story over at The New Yorker.

Gratitude: The Path to a Meaningful – and Magical – Life

Long after Thanksgiving is over, two things endure – the feeling that I couldn’t possibly eat another piece of turkey…and, more importantly, a deep sense of gratitude.

It will come as no surprise, then, to learn that I recently picked up a book called GRATITUDE by Oliver Sacks. It’s a quartet of essays that he wrote in the last two years of his life. Despite his struggles battling cancer, he chose to highlight his immense gratitude – something he felt not only through that ordeal, but through his entire life.

Here’s what he says about the gifts of old age:

One has had a long experience of life, not only one’s own life, but others’ too. One has seen triumphs and tragedies, booms and busts, revolutions and wars, great achievements and deep ambiguities… One is more conscious of transience and, perhaps, of beauty.

And he concludes:

I do not think of old age as an ever-grimmer time that one must somehow endure and make the best of, but as a time…freed from the urgencies of earlier days, free to explore whatever I wish, and to bind the thoughts and feelings of a lifetime together.

As you gather with loved ones this holiday season, I invite you to allow gratitude to fill your spirit and lead you into the New Year. How? Let Merlin guide you.

While Merlin is beloved around the world as a legendary wizard, the Merlin I’ve written many books about is also a real human being. He has struggles, sorrows, joys, and aspirations – and, hidden deep within him, a remarkable gift. In that way, Merlin is no different from all of us: he is burdened by the human experience, while at the very same time exalted by it.

All of us have hidden struggles – and hidden potential. And all of us, like the great wizard Merlin, have something special within us. No matter how many obstacles we face, we still have the ability to reach for the stars. We can strive, create, love, hope, sing, be kind, and work to build a better world.

Recently, I wrote a book about Merlin’s seven most magical words, THE WISDOM OF MERLIN: 7 Magical Words for a Meaningful Life. I purposely chose Gratitude to be the first of those words. Here’s a passage that explains why:

Gratitude is a good place to begin to make a meaningful life. To be wholly alive is to be grateful–for every breath we take, every song we sing, every person we love, every day we discover.

All we have–truly all we have–is our time and our souls. Even if you live as long as a wizard, that time is really very brief. It’s never long enough to do all you can do and be all you can be.

Each day, take a moment to love a person, a place, or an idea that touched your heart. Cherish those blessings through all the seasons of a year–and all the seasons of your life.

My favorite place to feel grateful is in nature–under a starry sky in Colorado wilderness, by the vast ocean at the Great Barrier Reef, or in a grove of towering redwoods in California.

Here’s the miracle of such places: With nature’s wonders all around, I feel both very small and very large at once–diminished and humbled by my own insignificance, while also enlarged and inspired by the vast sweep of creation. And both you and I belong to that creation! For we are all made from miracles, no less than the stars themselves.

One of humanity’s great challenges is to embrace nature without suffocating it–to treat our natural home with appreciation, not exploitation. We have been given the garden planet of the universe–and we can either nurture or devour it, protect or destroy it.

Fortunately, we have one great advantage in facing any challenges: ourselves. We can accomplish anything if we truly devote ourselves to the task.

And that, my friend, is worthy of our gratitude.

6 Science-Backed Tips For Falling Back Asleep That Actually Work

There’s nothing worse than being wide awake at 4 a.m., staring at the ceiling and willing yourself back to dreamland. Middle-of-the-night wake-ups can happen for many reasons, making it hard and frustrating to combat in the moment.

How about we break the cycle tonight? We’ve partnered with Sleep Number to bring you six scientifically proven tips and tricks that will have you back to sleep in no time.

1. Try Acupressure

Acupressure is an ancient therapy that involves finger placement and pressure over specific points on the body. These points follow the same channels, called meridians, used in acupuncture. Putting pressure (or needles) on these points is believed to promote blood flow and unlock tension ― among other benefits like alleviating lower-back pain and headaches.

Leigh Gilkey and Siri Michel, licensed acupuncturists and founders of Essential Acupuncture in Chicago, say that self-administered acupressure before bed can promote a restful night of uninterrupted sleep and, in the event of an unwanted nighttime awakening, can help get you back to sleep. A couple of their favorite points to treat insomnia include:

  • Anmian, located behind the ear. Behind the ear is a bone called the mastoid process.  Place your finger on the mastoid process and slide back off the bone and slightly upwards. Look for a little depression and press in a downward motion.
  • Liver 3, located on the top of the foot. Place a finger between the first toe and the second toe and push toward your ankle. There is a depression before the junction of the first and second metatarsal bones. Simply pressing on it or pulling in a downward motion is great for activating this point.

2. Dunk Your Head In Ice-Cold Water

Yes, you read that right. Submerge your face into a bowl of ice water; making sure the area below your eyes and above your cheekbones is wet. Hold your breath for 30 seconds before coming back up for air. This will trigger your mammalian diving reflex, an involuntary human response that will automatically slow down your heart rate and encourage your body to calm itself by activating the parasympathetic nervous system. You will be left feeling relaxed and, you guessed it, more ready for sleep.

3. Reach That Big O

The reason most of us sleep soundly after sex is because oxytocin, the “love hormone,” counteracts stress hormones that can keep you wide awake. Likewise, the endorphins released during sexual activity ― be it solo or among partners ― are like nature’s sedative, working in tandem to help you fall asleep and stay asleep.

4. Grab A Snack

That anxious awakening you get in the middle of the night could be the result of low blood sugar, studies show. The adrenal glands, two walnut-shaped organs that sit atop the kidneys, play a key role in regulating blood sugar, especially as you sleep. When your blood sugar drops significantly through the night, these grands release stress hormones that trigger the body to raise blood sugar levels, and stress hormones are no friend to your beauty sleep.

While midnight snacks might not be great for your waistline, there are healthy food options to help you fall back asleep, says Michael Breus, a clinical psychologist and sleep specialist. He suggests eating a 250-calorie snack made up of 75 percent carbs, 25 percent protein. Things like an apple with nut butter, a small bowl of non-sugar cereal or frozen Greek yogurt are good options, he says.

5. Dim Those Lights

The next time you wake in the middle of the night and head to the kitchen for a midnight snack or a glass of water, try keeping those lights as dim as possible. It’s the same science that proves blue light exposure from cell phones has a bigger impact on decreasing melatonin levels than other light wavelengths.

“Nighttime light exposure … suppresses the hormone melatonin, which plays an important role in regulating sleep and circadian rhythms,” Breus says in a blog post on his website.

Though unscientific anecdotes such as living by candlelight can purportedly be better for quality sleep and mindful living, there are safer options. Instead of turning on a light the next time you head to the bathroom in the middle of the night, try instead using a dimmer or another softer light source. You can also buy commercial products that will help limit exposure, like the bulbs from Lighting Science. “These will filter out blue light but still give a nice overall lighting solution,” Breus says.

6. Keep It Cool

Falling back asleep may be as simple as lowering the thermostat. Your core body temperature drops at the onset of sleep, which means that a too-warm (or too-cool) room may wake you up. The National Sleep Foundation suggests keeping the bedroom temp around 60 to 68 degrees to get you back to sleep. It’s the ideal temperature scale to layer on those PJs, blankets and duvet cover.

 If you start to feel slightly overheated during the night, try stick one or both feet out from under the covers. Because we’re mammals, the palms of our hands and feet help regulate our core body temperature. Think of them as nature’s thermostats.

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

Voter Suppression In a Post-Shelby World

by Hannah Walker

In the first general election since Shelby County v. Holder (2013), restrictive voting rules in place in jurisdictions previously covered for preclearance by the Department of Justice might have played a role in the election results. Such tactics limiting access to the ballot box include shortened early voting hours, reduced polling locations and hours, new requirements for photo ID, and increased voting restrictions for felons. These tactics have been contested in the courts for their negative impact on minority voters. For example, the three judge panel that struck down an omnibus bill passed in North Carolina after Shelby County described it as “target(ing) African Americans with almost surgical precision.”

Selective voter identification requirements were among the provisions in the North Carolina bill, and were one of the most hotly contested voting regulations heading into the 2016 election. Advocates of voter identification laws argue that they are important to maintaining the integrity of elections. Research suggests that they are most often adopted in states where Republicans control the legislature, but elections are highly competitive. Opponents worry about their disparate impact on racial minorities and lower-income voters, and battles over their validity are waged in the courts.

In addition to North Carolina, during the summer of 2016 courts struck down, stayed or amended laws in North Dakota, Texas and Wisconsin. Yet, strict requirements remained in nine states, and cases in key states were pending appeal at the time of the election. For example, although the 5th Circuit Court found that Texas’ law was in violation of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, a version of the law remained in effect, problems surfaced with its administration in the weeks leading up to November 8, and the State applied for a writ of certiori in the end of September. Questions abound over the exact impact of voter identification laws on voter turnout, and whether or not they give an edge to their Republican proponents. The 2016 presidential election brings these questions into sharp relief, where for only the fourth time in American history the winner took the Electoral College while losing the popular vote, which Trump lost by nearly a million ballots.

Questions over the impact of voter suppression are particularly acute in highly competitive swing states like Wisconsin, home to one of the strictest and most contested voter identification laws in the nation. While the exact impact on voter turnout is unclear, evidence suggests that Wisconsin’s law had the potential to impact election outcomes.

Voter Identification in Wisconsin

2016 marked the first general election in which Wisconsin’s voter identification law was in effect. The law requires that ID have a photo and a name conforming to that listed on the voter rolls, and enumerates only eight variations that are acceptable. Moreover, if the ID is not proof of address individuals must provide additional documentation to this effect. Research indicates that voter identification laws are most onerous for low income and minority voters, and on Election Day officials confirmed that turnout was lower than in previous years in districts most likely to be impacted by voter ID.

In the city of Milwaukee, a Democratic stronghold, 41,000 fewer votes were cast in 2016 than in 2012. This decrease cannot be attributed to a shrinking citizen voting age population, which according to the U.S. Census increased by over 8,000 between 2011 and 2015. Turnout was also down by over 22,000 votes in Douglass County, also reliably Democratic, and in certain counties flipped by Trump in 2016, such as Kenosha and Racine county where over 20,000 fewer votes were cast. Research examining the impact of voter identification laws on voter turnout estimate that the strictest laws, of which Wisconsin’s is one, depress minority turnout as much as 10 percentage points. Hillary Clinton lost the state of Wisconsin to Donald Trump by only 27,257 votes, raising the possibility that voter ID played a part in giving Republicans the edge.

Survey data collected in Milwaukee County in 2012 measuring access to a piece of identification that met the requirements of the law indicates that nearly 10 percent of Milwaukee County residents did not have access to an appropriate ID at the time of the survey. Possession of a valid piece of ID differed among racial subgroups, where 13.2 percent of Black respondents and 14.9 percent of Latino respondents did not have appropriate ID, compared to only 7.3 percent of white respondents. Drawing on census estimates of the citizen voting age population, this translates to an estimated 63,085 voters in Milwaukee County who lacked an appropriate ID for voting, including 7,453 Latino, 20,939 Black and 30,894 white eligible voters. While estimates of vote choice by race are not yet available for Wisconsin, national exit polls suggest 37 percent of whites, 88 percent of Blacks and 65 percent of Latinos voted for Clinton, generating 34,700 eligible voters likely to support Clinton whose vote was threatened by voter ID laws. If we correct the Latino estimate to reflect Latino Decisions’ Election Eve Poll, which found 77 percent support for Clinton in Wisconsin, the approximate number of threatened votes grows to 35,595.

Voter Suppression around the Country

Despite the fact that North Carolina’s restrictive voting law was struck down in July election officials in the state sought to alter the electorate through alternative means. For example, to get around the Court’s ruling against eliminating a full week of early voting county election boards instead severely reduced the number of polling stations available during the early voting period. In the first week of early voting 158 fewer polling stations were available across 40 counties with high concentrations of Black voters than in 2012. Reports suggest that in the first seven days Black turnout was down by 16 percent in the first week of early voting compared to the same week in 2012. Drawing on the estimated number of Black voters who voted in the first week of early voting in 2012, that amounts to about 40,409 potential votes for Clinton, without accounting for other suppression tactics like last minute purges to voter registration records. Clinton only lost North Carolina by 177,529 total votes. Likewise, in Florida where Clinton lost by only 119,770 votes, felon disenfranchisement barred a quarter of Florida’s Black voting age population from the polls in 2016. Florida is one of a handful of states, including swing states like Arizona and Iowa that permanently bar felons from voting.

These numbers highlight the increasing importance of voter suppression to election outcomes. The impact of voter ID and other voter suppression tactics on the presidential race likely will require more thorough rigorous analysis. But, reports from volunteers for the League of Women Voters deployed to observe the election across Wisconsin indicate that individuals were indeed negatively impacted by voter ID, having been turned away without being offered a provisional ballot. This, together with evidence that voter identification laws have a disproportionately negative effect on minority turnout in the aggregate, suggests that Wisconsin’s law was not inconsequential to the outcome of its highly competitive election.

Love Actually: Don’t Fast Forward To The Happy Ending

One of the many characters in Love Actually is a widower named Daniel (Liam Neeson.) While delivering his wife Joanne’s eulogy, he gives us a hint at her sense of humor:

“Jo and I had uh, a lot of time to prepare for this moment. Some of her, uh, requests – for instance, that I should bring Claudia Schiffer as my date to the funeral – I was confident she expected me to ignore.”

In a scene shortly following the funeral, Daniel cries in front of his married friend Karen (Emma Thompson.) Karen responds be telling him:

“Get a grip, people hate sissies. No-one’s ever gonna shag you if you cry all the time.”

In the movie, that bit of dialogue is not meant to paint Karen as being a bad friend. Rather, this is how the movie actually sees the world: Only wimps have emotions, real men don’t cry, and it’s a widower’s JOB to get laid.

And sure enough, by the end of the movie, the widower is successfully flirting with (and beginning a relationship with) Carol, a women who happens to look a lot like Claudia Schiffer (perhaps because she’s being played by Claudia Schiffer.) The timeline between the widower burying his wife and hitting it off with a supermodel? Five weeks.

Five weeks. That’s the timeline movies like Love Actually have for grief. After that, it’s time to give the audience what they really want, namely the excitement of seeing a “boy meets girl” moment. Joanne, who is never even seen alive during the movie, was only written into existence to set up a surprise romance. It’s suggested that Joanne suffered through a long illness, but her real cause of death was narrative efficiency.

There is a shocking amount of pressure placed on real-life widows and widowers to “get back out there.” People will actually start talking to the bereaved about dating as early as the funeral. Love Actually, The Holiday, and other movies that use an off-screen dead spouse to help set up an eventual “meet cute” romantic-comedy moment are only contributing to the problem.

People’s lives do not follow narrative arcs. When you or somebody you know faces a personal loss, respect that loss for what it is. Let it be a self-contained terrible moment in time, not a mere set up for something wonderful that you want to believe is just around the corner. Don’t try to fast forward to the happy ending.

Mom Captures Beautiful Moment ‘Miracle’ Baby Sees Snow For The First Time

In December 2015, doctors told Johanna Morton she was going to miscarry. Just a few weeks ago, she watched her daughter see snow for the first time. 

Morton told The Huffington Post that when she was 12 weeks pregnant, doctors discovered something was wrong with her baby’s heart based on the way it sounded.  

“They told me I was going to miscarry,” Morton said. “A week or two after when I didn’t miscarry, it seemed like every appointment we would be told something else was wrong with her heart, another diagnosis.”

Doctors later told Morton that her baby would be stillborn. Her daughter, Clara Ray, defied the odds, though, and was born via C-section on June 14th at 37 weeks. 

“It was a miracle she hung on,” Morton said. “Even in the operating room, they couldn’t tell me if she would be born alive.” 

Now 5 months old, Clara Ray has been diagnosed with various medical conditions including borderline HLHS (hypoplastic left heart syndrome), pulmonary hypertension and intestinal malrotation. When she was just six days old, she had open heart surgery, and about a month later, her parents got to take her home to Cornwallville, New York.

Morton has been documenting Clara Ray’s journey on a Facebook page called Prayers for Clara Ray. On Nov. 20, she shared her daughter’s reaction to seeing snow for the first time. 

Morton said her daughter was “mesmerized” by the scenery outside the window.

“The photos say it all. It was as if time stood still for both my husband and I,” Morton told HuffPost. “For a moment she wasn’t sick and everything was just perfect. We knew whatever her future holds for her, that moment will forever be a memory.”

As of Monday, the photo of Clara Ray seeing snow has been shared more than 7,000 times on Facebook. Morton said she plans to continue spreading awareness for her daughter’s medical conditions and is especially appreciative of the people who join her along the way. 

“It’s one the hardest journeys we have been on,” she said. “It’s a terrifying roller coaster and you just never know what the next day will bring, let alone the next minute. We are so thankful we aren’t on this journey alone.”

For updates on Clara Ray, head to Prayers for Clara Ray on Facebook.

Gluten Free Low Carb Vegetarian cookbook

Gluten Free Low Carb Vegetarian cookbook


You have to watch your carbohydrate intake and many gluten-free products are very high in carbs. and if you simply replace your favorite cookies, cakes, breads and pastas with gluten free alternatives you aren’t really saving any calories or carbs. In fact, some of these replacements may even be higher in calories and carbs than what you were eating earlier! After all, gluten free products are typically marketed to those with celiac disease, (who have gluten intolerance) and are not being marketed as a weight loss food. With the help of low carb gluten free recipes your body changes from a carbohydrate-burning engine into a fat-burning engine. So instead of relying on the carbohydrate-rich items you might typically consume for energy, and leaving your fat stores just where they were before (alas, the hips, belly, and thighs), your fat stores become a primary energy source. The purported result is weight loss. Why Vegetarian? Consumption of meat & meat products have been established to be among the TOP cause of heart disease, hypertension and many types of cancers. You can stop the onslaught of these deadly diseases in their tracks by consuming more vegetables or by turning vegetarian.

Donald Trump Just Told One Of His Most Brazen Lies Yet

President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday made the astonishing claim that “millions of people who voted illegally” contributed to opponent Hillary Clinton’s victory in the popular vote, following a campaign based largely on spreading conspiracy theories and claiming that the election was “rigged” against him.

Trump’s latest lie seems to have originated from the conservative conspiracy website Infowars, which published an article claiming that Trump actually won the popular vote because “three million votes in the U.S. presidential election were cast by illegal aliens.” 

The tweet followed an earlier string of posts in which Trump railed against Clinton, claiming her campaign was hypocritical to participate in a vote recount because she criticized him when he would not affirm whether he would accept the results of the election. 

Now it seems that Trump won’t even fully accept the results of the election even though he won it.

8 Habits of Considerate People

2016-11-03-1478213220-62217-8HabitsofConsideratePeopleHP.jpg

Philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer once said, “Politeness is to human nature what warmth is to wax.” It’s true. Being kind and considerate softens people and makes them malleable to your way of thinking.

But I see another meaning there, too. I think he’s also saying that being considerate of others is an integral part of what it means to be human. Charles Darwin would have agreed. He argued that our instinct to be considerate is even stronger than our instinct to be self-serving.

As obvious as that may seem, it’s only recently that neuroscience has been able to explain why. Research conducted by Dacher Keltner at Berkeley showed that our brains react exactly the same when we see other people in pain as when we experience pain ourselves. Watching someone else experience pain also activates the structure deep inside the brain that’s responsible for nurturing behavior, called the periaqueductal gray.

Being considerate of others is certainly a good career move, but it’s also good for your health. When you show consideration for others, the brain’s reward center is triggered, which elevates the feel-good chemicals dopamine, oxytocin, and endogenous opioids. This gives you a great feeling, which is similar to what’s known as “runner’s high,” and all that oxytocin is good for your heart.

“Being considerate of others will take you further in life than any college or professional degree.” – Marian Wright Edelman

That’s all well and good, but how practical is it? How do you become more considerate when you have so many other things competing for your finite mental energy? It’s not that hard–all you have to do is emulate the habits of highly considerate people.

1. Show up on time. Sure, sometimes things happen, but always showing up late sends a very clear message that you think your time is more important than everyone else’s, and that’s just rude. Even if you really do think that your time is more important, you don’t have to broadcast that belief to the world. Instead, be considerate and show up when you said you would.

2. Be deliberately empathic. It’s one thing to feel empathy for other people, but putting that feeling into action is another matter entirely. It’s great to be able to put yourself in someone else’s shoes–in fact, it’s essential–but that doesn’t necessarily translate into being considerate. To be deliberately empathic, you have to let your ability to walk in their shoes change what you do, whether that’s changing your behavior to accommodate their feelings or providing tangible help in a tough situation. This requires emotional intelligence.

3. Apologize when you need to (and don’t when you don’t).
We all know people who are so insecure or so afraid of offending someone that they practically apologize for breathing. In such situations, apologizing loses its meaning. But it’s a different matter entirely when a sincere apology is really necessary. When you’ve made a mistake, or even think you’ve made a mistake, apologizing is a crucial part of being considerate.

4. Smile a lot. Physically, it’s easier to frown than to smile–smiling involves 42 different muscles; however, it pays to make the extra effort, as smiling has a huge effect on other people. People naturally (and unconsciously) mirror the body language of the person they’re talking to. When you smile at people, they will unconsciously return the favor and feel good as a result.

5. Mind your manners. A lot of people have come to believe that not only are manners unnecessary, they’re undesirable because they’re fake. These people think that being polite means you’re acting in a way that doesn’t reflect how you actually feel, but they’ve got it backwards. “Minding your manners” is all about focusing on how the other person feels, not on how you feel. It’s consciously acting in a way that puts other people at ease and makes them feel comfortable.

6. Be emotionally intelligent. One of the huge fallacies our culture has embraced is that feeling something is the same as acting on that feeling, and that’s just wrong, because there’s this little thing called self-control. Whether it’s helping out a co-worker when you’re in a crunch to meet your own deadline or continuing to be pleasant with someone who is failing to return the favor, being considerate often means not acting on what you feel.

7. Try to find a way for everybody to win. Many people approach life as a zero-sum game. They think that somebody has to win and somebody else has to lose. Considerate people, on the other hand, try to find a way for everybody to win. That’s not always possible, but it’s their goal. If you want to be more considerate, stop thinking of every interaction with others as a win/lose scenario.

8. Act on your intuition when it comes to other people’s needs.
Sometimes you can just tell when someone is upset or having a bad day. In such cases, being considerate means checking in with them to see if your intuition is correct. If your intuition is telling you to reach out–do it; they’ll appreciate your concern.

Bringing It All Together

Being considerate is good for your mental and physical health, your career, and everyone around you. On top of that, it just feels good.

What are some other ways to show consideration for others? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

Body Image vs. Self Image: A Self Discovery?

Body Image vs. Self Image; A Self Discovery?
Robert Reames, CSCS, CN, CES/FNS/CPT www.facebook.com/robertreameslive

If you’ve ever looked at celebrities in the media and thought to yourself; “does she really look like that? Is he that perfect?” The answer to these and other questions like this; highly doubtful. I think it started back as early as the 40’s and 50’s the onset of the “glamour” days in Hollywood. The “looks” of the media stars seem to set the tone and the quest for the flawless. Sometimes even when a healthy weight is achieved there are still parts of our bodies that in our thoughts don’t quite meet a level of beauty that the media and the fitness industry somehow has convinced us that we need to reach. As technology continues to develop so has the ability to enhance looks of perfection. In reality these folks you see in the media are just like you and me. Airbrushing, great lighting, make-up, photo shopping, injections, plastic surgery, extreme dieting prior to a movie, TV or photo shoot and other techniques are all used to create these illusions. Extreme measures many times are taken to create “the look.” This is the “glamour machine” in action. Then most likely, after the production or photo shoot because they’re human just like you and me it’s beer and pizza and or whatever the individual preference of indulgence may be.

That said, let’s talk about your body image and how this image has a huge impact on your self image. I mention the above because this concept tends to drive our thoughts, inner dialogue and self perception. These images often create unachievable expectations and sometimes can cause one to say; “why even bother?” The tendency is not to acknowledge your own individual progress or personal best because it’s not perfection. It’s important to shift the focus towards your individual goals and needs and what you can accomplish. And shift away from what is presented by the Hollywood glamour machine, the cover of the fitness magazine at the newstand or that skinny person down the street who can eat everything in site and not gain a pound. Own the fact that you are a unique being. Achieve your own personal best and not someone else’s. Your goals are real and valid. Own your own unique gifts and lead with these gifts; these talents. Be that electric person in the room who just knows who you are, is grounded and passionate about what you bring to this life. Think about it; there’s nothing more attractive than that. You’re not a failure or a bad person (self image) because you’ve gained a few pounds. (body image) The fitness industry contributes to this as well. This focus on external body perfection has always been a peeve I have with the business and I continue to work hard to shift this focus. The emphasis tends to be on the external while ignoring internal benefits and a return to health. Not that we all don’t want to look our best…that’s a huge benefit of taking great care of ourselves. However, getting optimum numbers on our yearly physicals, quality longevity, exuding a healthy glow, having mobility to play with our kids and grandkids, climb stairs, being able to mow the lawn, shovel the snow or haul the groceries in at night needs more attention. Obesity with adults and kids and healthcare costs in America are all dramatically rising every year. So the approach of the sheened up body under perfect lighting after fasting for two days is clearly not working. It never worked for any long term. www.twitter.com/Robertreames

So what is body image? It’s a reaction you have within in response to what you see in the mirror or a picture. This encompasses the perceptions and things you tell yourself about how you feel about your body. You’re too fat, too thin, ugly, old, bloated and tired, average, amazing, fit, beautiful or whatever you tell yourself based on what you see. This is your body image. Self image is how we feel about ourselves as people, as human beings. It’s who you are as a person from the soul; self esteem. If you’re a good giving and caring person, a good parent, a great friend or sibling. Body image and self image for most everyone go hand in hand. You may have great body image but a poor self image; poor self esteem. Or you may have the opposite. Ultimately you want a healthy and positive image of both. If you’ve looked in the mirror and punished yourself for what you see based on the fact that you’ve let your health go and gained weight you get what I’m talking about here. Because you’ve let yourself go (body image) …now you’ve deemed yourself as a total failure in life. (self image) The fat on your hips and thighs, your flabby midsection, the chubby arms…these are not who you are. (body image) And because you may have let yourself go for whatever reason, you’re still the same loving giving person that you’ve always been. (self image) Your friends, family and loved ones around you know and embrace this as well. I’ve said before that being overweight for the most part is always the result of something much bigger; an injury that caused you to become inactive, a traumatic event, your need to be protected by the fat suit, depression, loss, a bad relationship or any other reason in life that took you in the wrong direction health wise. These events and the current result of being overweight again are not who you are. No need to punish yourself. And newsflash; If you’re overweight you have the power within you to do something about it.

Your body image now may not be so much that you hate yourself and where you are now. But more a feeling of disappointment that you’ve not kept the standards that you really do have for yourself. You’ve let yourself go. Truth is if these standards didn’t exist in you, your poor body image due to being fat and out of shape wouldn’t bother you at all. You’d be fat, bloated, happy and loving life. Tap your resources and put this in motion. Raise your standards, alter your perspective and move forward one step at a time but continue the move forward. Focus on your goals, your passions, your inner goodness and not the illusion of the media machine.

Avoid a “diet” as these are temporary plans that yield temporary results. If you’re not going to commit to a level that you can commit to or do it right you’re better off to stay overweight until you decide that you’re ready to do it. Then make the changes necessary to embrace a lifestyle that will get you to your goal weight and keep you there. Ultimately you to learn what I call the “skill of weight control.” Determine a weight that you realistically can attain and sustain and work with that. And this perspective will continue to have ebbs and flows. That’s okay. Just stay conscious and real about what you are willing to do.

It’s keeping standards high for the choices you make on a daily basis. Heck yes you’ll look good…absolutely! Enjoy and flaunt this great pay-off. But go even deeper on this for yourself, your health and how you’ll feel. Your energy levels will soar and there is so much out there in life that awaits you. At your physical the doctor hands you tremendous results. If you have kids, nieces or nephews you’re going to turn around one day and they’ll have kids. You want to begin now to enjoy these times later. And yes; you’ll be able to wear those benchmark jeans! Don’t wait for tragedy to wake you up forcing you to play catch up. Get off the couch and take action now. You don’t have to be perfect just be you. “Acknowledge all progress” as I say. You’ll feel better and who doesn’t want that? Love your body and who you are. Get in the game and enjoy the journey!

Your Body Can Talk, Revised 2nd Edition

Your Body Can Talk, Revised 2nd Edition


This book, about the art and application of Clinical Kinesiology, introduces the energetic system that links mind and body. It shows how the body can â€atalk,†and therefore be used as a diagnostic tool, and to determine which healing approach will best suit an individual. Clinical Kinesiology allows us to interpret this new â€abody talk.†This method of muscle-testing â€areads†the body’s innate wisdom; when â€aasked†a question, or presented with a stimulus, the muscles respond clearly, either strongly or weakly. This system, which expedites the application of acupuncture, also helps realign the body’s energy imbalances. Readers will find specific methods of fighting disease that emphasize the dangers of unnecessary drugs, antibiotics and immunization, and the need for a fortified immune system — especially through natural foods. Other topics include: rebuilding the body’s ecology after an overgrowth of unhealthy bacteria or Candidiasis; how to maintain the integrity of the energy system through minimizing exposure to unhealthy electromagnetic fields or EMFs; optimal health for woman; and issues of men’s health. New material in this 2nd edition includes an extensive chapter on children’s health, which addresses pregnancy, birthing procedures and breastfeeding, and illustrates a road map for giving your children (and children yet to come) the best potential for optimal health.

Letters To California Mosques Praise Donald Trump, Promise Genocide

Religious leaders in California are calling for a police investigation after identical letters were sent to local mosques hailing President-elect Donald Trump and calling for death to Muslims.

The San Francisco Bay Area chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) released a statement asking for increased protection after the hate-filled letters were discovered at the Islamic centers of Long Beach and Claremont as well as a mosque in San Jose.

The handwritten and photocopied letters, received over the course of the week, were signed by “Americans for a Better Way.” They call Muslims “a vile and filthy people” who “worship the devil” and evoke Trump.

“There’s a new sheriff in town — President Donald Trump. He’s going to cleanse America and make it shine again. And, he’s going to start with you Muslims,” the letters read. “He’s going to do to you Muslims what Hitler did to the Jews.”

CAIR leaders in San Francisco and Los Angeles didn’t initially want to bring the letters into the public spotlight to avoid copycats, but they acknowledged the need for police intervention once the diatribe was sent to a number of jurisdictions across the state, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“We urge local law enforcement authorities to work with Muslim community leaders to ensure the safety of all houses of worship,” CAIR-SFBA Executive Director Zahra Billoo said in a statement. “Our state’s political and religious leaders need to speak out against the mainstreaming of Islamophobia that we are witnessing in California and nationwide.”

Though Trump has said he isn’t aware of campaigns across the country to intimidate and hurt Muslims since his victory, the problem is rampant.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has tracked more than 700 acts of this kind of bias intimidation and harassment targeting Muslims, blacks, Latinos, immigrants and LGBTQ people since Election Day, though not every incident has been independently verified. The Huffington Post’s Christopher Mathias has identified at least 13 incidents in which Muslims have been attacked, harassed or threatened in Trump’s name.

San Jose police are reportedly investigating the letters. It wasn’t immediately clear whether police departments across the state would ramp up security in response to CAIR’s statement.

CAIR urges Muslim community members to report any incidents to police and to the organization’s civil rights department by calling 202-742-6420 or by filing a report online.

WATCH: Doubting You Deserve Better

It’s very difficult for us to manifest into our lives more than we believe we deserve. What do you unconsciously believe you deserve? Look around at what you’ve got at present. If you’d like things to get better, allow yourself to know the truth – you deserve better. I hope this will help.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The ‘Gilmore Girls’ Revival Is Best When It Talks About Grief

There’s a moment in the opening chapter of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” after the first “la las” and Gwyneth Paltrow dig, when the long-awaited Netflix revival finally takes a second to breathe. Fueled by a late-night batch of coffee, Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) convene in their rarely used kitchen to do the thing they do better than anyone else on television: talk.

“I’m just stressed out and kind of feeling my mortality lately,” Lorelai says after confessing that she willingly flipped through a brochure for an all-expenses-paid cruise, much to the women’s shared horror.

The line is especially significant given that the series, much like its caffeine-infused hero, is also contending with its mortality. Nine years after it was cancelled by the CW on the heels of a rudderless final season, “Gilmore Girls” has become the latest in a long line of early 2000s series to get the revival treatment. But instead of abandoning what made the show so beloved, “A Year in the Life,” at its best, honors the essential themes of the series (family, fighting and Al’s Pancake World, duh) by taking the Gilmore women on a yearlong journey of grief and self-discovery. 

Besides the steady stream of “Tuck Everlasting” water under Stars Hollow that’s apparently keeping everybody ageless, the undercurrent of the revival series is the death of actor Edward Hermann, who embodied Gilmore family patriarch Richard. His absence strikes Lorelai, Rory and his wife of 50 years, Emily (Kelly Bishop), who also shared a deep bond with Hermann off-set, in both devastating and humorous ways.

Each woman is facing a crossroads in life. Lorelai, now in a full-fledged relationship with Luke (Scott Patterson), is questioning her happily ever after. A sizable inheritance for an expansion of Luke’s Diner is revealed to be Richard’s parting gift to his daughter’s presumed husband, although Emily is happy to remind everybody that they haven’t gotten married yet. Emily is unleashed as a widow in mourning, wearing jeans, Marie Kondo-ing her Connecticut mansion and trying to maintain some semblance of normalcy without her other half. She’s made vulnerable by blow of losing a lifelong partner, but still retains the ability to verbally decimate anyone who dares cross her.

“You never do anything unless it’s what you want to do,” Emily seethes at Lorelai in a bitter showdown after she bungles a eulogy at Richard’s wake. “You never have. You blow through life like a natural disaster, knocking down everything and everyone in your path.”

Rory, too, has been affected, but we feel her mourning most acutely in the challenges in her career. See, the great Rory Gilmore is having trouble living up to her potential, bouncing from one freelance journalism gig to another before eventually moving home. We can only imagine that one of the driving forces behind her soul searching is her grandfather’s well-documented expectations of her success. In fact, it’s in his study that she finally discovers her true calling, writing a novel about her family titled Gilmore Girls.

Midway through the first installment we learn that Richard died suddenly due to a massive heart attack. His last words were, “Get the hell away from me,” Lorelai recounts in a therapy session (yes, we get Lorelai and Emily therapy, everybody), leaving his family with little closure and a lot of unresolved anger.

For all the talk of the perpetually chippy “Gilmore” universe, the revival isn’t afraid to go to the dark side, refusing to shy away from the the division and ugliness that can arise after a loved one dies. We witness each of the Gilmore women in a moment of desperation ― Emily’s is wearing jeans, obviously ― but as winter, spring, summer and fall pass, each finds a moment of clarity amid her grief, making them that much more human in the process. 

Graham and Bishop have always done the series’ heavy lifting, but their scenes together in “A Year in the Life” should make dual nominations for the actresses a given come awards season. Without the buffer that’s kept them from tackling a stable of mother-daughter issues, their relationship becomes the prism through which the series most successfully tackles the grieving process. In the closing chapter, “Fall,” an empowered Lorelai is finally able to deliver the eulogy she meant to at the start of the series after coming to a revelation on a “Wild”-inspired adventure.

Her monologue about the “best birthday ever” with her father is too long and heartbreaking to include here, but let’s just say it involves Richard Gilmore, a mall pretzel and the movie “Grease.” In perhaps the most rewarding moment of the four chapters, Graham successfully communicates the complicated but fierce love she had for him while on the phone with a mother that was never truly able to understand her. 

“I got up enough courage to look up at him,” Lorelai tells Emily with tears streaming down her face. “And he was standing there with a pretzel. A giant pretzel, covered with mustard. And he handed it to me and he said, ‘Let’s go.’ And he took me to the movies.”

Big deaths on television are commonplace these days, as the stakes have been considerably raised since “Gilmore Girls” went off the air. What distinguished the series, even back when it was airing before “One Tree Hill,” however, is that it has never been particularly plot-heavy. Series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino doled out big life moments with a glorious stinginess in the original run, making sure the audience recognized the importance of each one.

We sobbed along at Rory’s Chilton graduation because the series had earned our tears and now we mourn Richard and Hermann’s death because the revival treats it with the gravity it deserves. Instead of limiting grief to some easily digestible three-episode arc, “Gilmore Girls” prefers to look death straight in the eye, much like the series “Six Feet Under” (shoutout to newly minted park ranger Peter Krause), by authentically exploring what these women have lost over the course of a year and how it has shaped them.

And as for those final four words, with death comes life. So as Lorelai Gilmore would say: “Full freakin’ circle.”

The Big Lesson From 2016 Is That Neither Party Has A Winning Vote Coalition

Donald Trump won the Electoral College by a 306-232 margin, but lost the popular vote by a more than 2 million votes (and still counting) ― more than any previous presidential winner ever has in a split decision. How this happened is a complex story, much more nuanced than most “here’s why Trump won” stories imply.

Almost all of those stories contain a piece of the puzzle, but in order to see the real story you need to consider all of the explanations combined. Neither party has much reason to celebrate the outcome of the 2016 election. Republicans have a demographics problem, and Democrats have a geography problem compounded by turnout issues.

At the state level, the 2016 vote patterns seem to show a sea of red states with blues isolated to the coasts plus Colorado, New Mexico, Minnesota and Illinois. Looking county-by-county, it becomes clear that the divide isn’t just coasts vs. flyover territory; it’s rural-urban. Pockets of blue in the major cities, college towns and a handful of majority-black areas in the South are evident in this view. The New York Times’ graphic below shows just how little actual land area went to Hillary Clinton at the county level: She won 15 percent of the land to Trump’s 85 percent.

Yet declaring the United States a country divided by population density overlooks several trends that are key to understanding Trump’s success. The urban-rural split is nothing new; perhaps it’s more exaggerated in 2016 than before, but we’ve known for a long time that rural areas are conservative and urban areas are liberal. But if we consider gradations ― not just dividing counties by which candidate a majority of voters selected, but shading by the proportion of Trump and Clinton voters in each county ― the story is far less clear.  

If we can’t blame everything on the rural-urban divide, then what happened? There’s not one single reason why Clinton lost several states where majorities voted for President Barack Obama twice: there are several reasons. 

A few, significant, subplots played out in the supposed Democratic “firewall” states of Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, and the perennial battleground of Ohio. These states have been close recently, but in 2008 and 2012 Democrats were able to generate support among the rural working class to win over majorities of voters in the states.

But there was a sizable shift in 2016. It’s unclear how many people voted for Trump that had voted for Obama, but Trump did pull a larger percentage of the vote in many counties: more than Mitt Romney did in 2012. That could be in part different groups of voters turning out in 2016 as compared to 2012, but anecdotal stories and survey data reveal that there were some party switchers.

Turnout is part of the picture, though, particularly in Michigan and Wisconsin. As HuffPost previously reported, turnout was down in Detroit’s Wayne County, Michigan and Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, in numbers large enough to swing the election in those states. Clinton received nearly 78,000 fewer votes in Wayne County than Obama did in 2012, and lost Michigan by under 12,000 votes. She underperformed Obama by 39,000 votes in Milwaukee County and lost Wisconsin by just over 27,000 votes.

Similar patterns of lower urban turnout were evident in Philadelphia and other cities in the Midwest. The numbers suggest these people didn’t vote for Trump: they just didn’t vote at all. And according to reports, the Clinton campaign didn’t make concerted efforts to get them to the polls. Many of these nonvoters were likely minorities who Democrats assumed would support the party in large numbers ― which they do, when they vote.

An additional subplot involves suburban areas and white women. Democrats hoped to make gains in these areas, particularly among typically-conservative women who might be turned off by Trump’s actions and rhetoric. That hope proved false. Nationally, suburban areas and white women voted for Trump in very similar proportions to their votes for Romney in 2012. Romney received 50 percent of the suburban vote, and Trump garnered 59 percent. Fifty-six percent of white women voted for Romney, and 52 percent supported Trump.

Nationally, as well as in the Rust Belt, Democrats lost support among the least educated groups. According to the exit polls, education didn’t matter much in 2012: Obama won college graduates by 2 points and non-college graduates by 4 points. Clinton won college graduates by 10 points and lost non-college graduates by 7 points. Relative to Obama’s totals, Clinton gained 2 points among college graduates and lost 7 points among non-college graduates.

The difference is even more stark among whites: Trump won white college graduates by 2 points, but he won white non-college graduates by 37 points. The racial breakdown isn’t provided in the 2012 results, but it’s safe to say there wasn’t that sharp of a divide among whites or there would have been a gap in the overall numbers. Among minorities, Clinton won college graduates by 50 points and non-college graduate by 56 points. Once you account for the educational divide, income doesn’t seem to make a difference in vote choice.

Yet despite all these trends that favored Trump, Clinton won the popular vote by a wider margin than several past presidents. Clinton cut the Republican advantage to around 5 points in the red state strongholds of Arizona and Georgia, and Texas dropped from a 16-point Republican advantage in 2012 to a 9 point win for Trump. California is still counting, but it looks like Clinton blew Trump out by nearly 30 points in the state ― substantially more than Obama’s 23-point win over Romney four years ago.

These results were likely driven by high support for Clinton among minority populations, particularly among Latinos and Hispanics in the Southwest. And although there’s some dispute over just how strongly that group supported Clinton, the most conservative estimates from the National Exit Polls indicate that Clinton won Latinos by 36 points. Other pre-election polls show even stronger Democratic leanings among the group.

Republicans also struggled with black voters. Trump’s 8 percent support is actually slightly more than Mitt Romney’s 6 percent in 2012, but slightly less than George W. Bush’s support among black voters in 2000 and 2004. Black turnout was slightly lower this year compared to 2012 as well, which helped states like Georgia stay red. An uptick in turnout among a group that so heavily favors Democrats has considerable potential to shift those states.  

The problem is that none of these states actually switched directions. Had Clinton won Arizona’s 11 electoral votes and Georgia’s 16 electoral votes, she still would have been short of the 270 mark, but it would have compensated for the losses in Michigan and Wisconsin, which combine for 26 electoral votes. But neither state appears as close to turning blue as some polls had indicated. So these gains meant nothing for the Electoral College, which is what really matters.

To state the obvious, as long as the Electoral College determines the winner, Democrats can’t rely on increasing support in already-blue states, and it seems that key red states aren’t ready to flip yet. The best strategy for 2020 will be to focus on the very narrow losses in the Rust Belt and win those voters back ― which probably means convincing them that Democrats are a better option for improving their economy than Republicans. Democrats clearly lost that battle this year.

Meanwhile Republicans will try to hold onto those gains and build their very fragile coalition that won the Electoral College. Whether it survives beyond 2016 is anyone’s guess. The Obama coalition didn’t outlast Obama, but the Trump coalition might not survive Trump.
