The Coral Island

The Coral Island


Three boys, fifteen-year-old Ralph Rover (the narrator), eighteen-year-old Jack Martin and fourteen-year-old Peterkin Gay, are the sole survivors of a shipwreck on the coral reef of a large but uninhabited Polynesian island. At first their life on the island is idyllic; food, in the shape of fruits, fish and wild pigs, is plentiful, and using their only possessions; a broken telescope, an iron-bound oar and a small axe, they fashion a shelter and even construct a small boat. Their first contact with other people comes after several months when they observe two large outrigger canoes land on the beach. The two groups are engaged in battle and the three boys intervene to successfully defeat the attacking party, earning the gratitude of the chief Tararo. The Polynesians leave and the three boys are alone once more. Then more unwelcome visitors arrive in the shape of pirates, who make a living trading, or stealing, sandalwood. The three boys conceal themselves in a hidden cave, but Ralph is captured when he sets out to see if the pirates have left, and is taken aboard the pirate schooner. Ralph strikes up an unexpected friendship with one of the pirates, “Bloody Bill”, and when they call at an island to trade for more wood he meets Tararo again. On the island he sees all facets of island life, including the popular sport of surfing, as well as the practice of infanticide and cannibalism. Rising tension leads to an attack by the inhabitants on the pirates, leaving only Ralph alive and Bloody Bill mortally wounded. However they manage to make their escape in the schooner. After Bill dies, making a death-bed repentance for his evil life, Ralph manages to sail back to the Coral Island to be re-united with his friends.

The Real Stakes in the Burkini Mess

Editor’s Note: Bernard-Henri Levy’s opinions are his own and do not represent those of The WorldPost.

PARIS — This burkini business is deplorable.

Deplorable — and grotesque — is the image of a France where the vice squad forces women not to cover up but to take it off.

Lamentable — and, alas, predictable — is the spectacle of the Conseil d’Etat, France’s highest court, overturning, to the great delight of the provocateurs, bans imposed by mayors in the south of France that were justified neither by concern for public order nor by the principle of secularity.

Imagine for a moment the authorities’ confusion if all of the Islamo-leftists and their allies were to decide, in “solidarity” with their “comrades” or their “sisters” who are victims of unacceptable “stigmatization,” to descend in droves to the beaches sporting burkinis and chanting, “We are all persecuted burkini wearers.”

That is not an idle fantasy. It is a proposal that appeared on social networks. But, happily, it has not been put into action. Regardless, it is a catastrophe scenario that the authorities have to plan for.

Concealed under the burkini was a trap. And once that trap was set, the worst possible solution was, by overreacting, to jump in with both feet and spring it.

burkini protest london

It was a double trap. A reputational trap: the authorities and the republic they represent were made to look ridiculous. And a moral trap: this has become a revolting, humiliating hunt for burkinis and the women wearing them.

Yet, at the same time, the matter is complex. It is obviously not by chance that women appeared on the beaches wearing these outfits this summer. No doubt some of them were acting in good faith out of modesty or for other reasons of their own; these women may well have dressed in the same way in previous years.

The authorities and the republic they represent were made to look ridiculous.

But it is hard not to see that for many others, donning the burkini is a political statement linked more or less directly with French politics over the last few months. In other words, the burkini, while not yet a fashion, is already a wave. More precisely, it is the crest of a wave — the wave of radical Islam that is everywhere on the offensive, although all burkini-wearing women must not, of course, be associated as terrorists.

And it is probable that, for the architects of this extended war unfolding on all fronts, the phenomenon has provided the ideal opportunity to score a double victory: on the opinion front, transforming the defenders of republican democracy into imitators of the Taliban busily regulating the length of skirts and the coverage of bathing suits; and, in the same motion, promoting the re-confinement of women in the cloth prisons presently required in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and elsewhere.

burkini

Are these women acting voluntarily? Have they, of their own free will, accepted the idea that the sight of their bodies should be a source of guilt? That’s possible.

But a good deal of bad faith — or gullibility, which is almost worse — is required to claim to have just discovered a mechanism of voluntary servitude that was described five centuries ago by Etienne de La Boétie.

Moreover, it is hard to see how or why women should not be among the participants in an ideological offensive that spans the Muslim world and that here, in Europe, never stops testing the resistance of its opponents — an offensive of which the burkini business is just the most recent and, for the moment, derisory illustration.

For many, donning the burkini is a political statement.

So? So, therein lies the whole question. The question is not religious — it’s political.

And although it confronts everyone in France, one must admit that it applies with particular acuity to those who, in one way or another, identify with Islam. What do they think about this infringement of the republican principle of strict equality of the sexes?

Are they or are they not troubled by visible discrimination on the beaches, with men free to flex their muscles, show off their tattoos and display their virility while subordinate women are kept under wraps lest the sight of their body offend someone?

Should this step backward be encouraged or discouraged? What if more women who, by virtue of a political reading of the Quran, chose or passively assented to return to the time when the second sex was deemed shameful, impure and dirty?

burkini france

And is this really a matter purely of personal choice, as asserted by the advocates of the downward adjustment of the rights won so dearly by feminism?

Or are those rights, like certain other fundamental rights, essential parts of the complex and fragile edifice — fragile in the sense that when one beam fails the roof is prone to collapse — that is our common republican house?

On these questions, imams, association leaders and other moral authorities to whom Muslims look for guidance have a responsibility to respond promptly and deliberately.

Is it not troubling that on beaches, men are free to flex their muscles, show off their tattoos and display their virility, while women are kept under wraps?

It is up to them to remind their followers and members that democracy, like France itself, must be considered as a whole, and that by returning to a time when the practitioners of all the major religions believed that it was permissible to hide their women, it is democracy as a whole that is threatened.

A group of distinguished French Muslims published in late July an appeal for the reform of Islam in France. It is a reform made necessary, they said, by a series of villainous attacks that they duly inventoried (omitting, however, the killings at the kosher market). It would be gratifying if they would find the courage now to declare that standing firm on women’s rights is as important as staunchly defending the freedom to satirize, to stroll on the Promenade des Anglais, to sit at a sidewalk cafe, to attend mass safely or to go to a concert at the Bataclan.

Those are the stakes.

And that should be — calmly, without panic — the response. It is not a magic wand that will halt the spread of Salafism in France. But ultimately, it will be a hundred times more effective than hastily issued regulations that are both inconsistent with the rule of law and counterproductive.

Mindful Dating III

The dynamics we have with our primary caregivers when we are young have a tremendous influence on our dating choices later in life. 

In all of my workshops I teach a section on Attachment Theory. John Bowlby and Mary Ainsworth theorized that people develop either secure or insecure attachment styles very early in life. Many people in our culture exhibit one of three types of insecure attachment styles:

1. Fearful/avoidant
2. Anxious
3. Disorganized

We must be cognizant of the dynamics that we have with each of our parents because those manifest later as attachment styles. For example, if our fathers or mothers were aloof and emotionally withholding, we should not be surprised if we are attracted to partners who turn out to be aloof and withholding.

There is a part of us that becomes what we loved and admired as children, and there is a part of us that becomes what we hated and despised as children.

Specifically, I have found that the wounded child in all of us feels betrayed because all he or she wanted was to be loved UNCONDITIONALLY and grew up in a society that primarily provided tools to gain love CONDITIONALLY – because we received good grades, behaved correctly, looked good, were good athletes, spoke well, earned money, were talented, etc.  This creates much resentment because even as children felt as if we were constantly “seducing” people into liking us. However the tools we learned to use to seduce people into liking us often are not the right tools for procuring the type of love that our hearts really yearn for later in life – they are more apt for procuring admiration.

Let me ask you: would you rather be admired or loved?

In an effort to individuate, sometimes we date people who are the exact opposite of one of our parents. Rebellion is an essential part of the individuation process – but it can also be inauthentic if it is only moving away from something rather than also moving towards something. 

I believe that babies individuate the first time they see themselves in a mirror (as a “self” distinct from their mothers), then again when they go to pre-school or school for the first time but are still living in their parents’ homes; then again when if they go off to college away from home but have their parents still paying to support them; then again when they live away from their parents and learn how to support themselves as adults.  There is a tension between having to obey and depend on your parents and wanting to be your own person.  Note the spate of young people in the last 35-40 years who got tattoos early in life; this is a subconscious declaration, “I own my body and nobody can tell me what to do with it anymore (even if you’re still paying my rent).” 

We are living in fascinatingly complex and often confusing times regarding gender roles, the ways we expect men and women to act.  We all agree that women should be paid equal salaries as men, yet many women still think that men should pay for meals as subconscious symbols of being providers and protectors.  There is a tension between wanting to be independent and wanting to be taken care of.

We have lived in a society that objectified women as sexy secretaries, waitresses, librarians, bank-tellers, store-clerks, nurses, etc. That archetype of the damsel in distress needing to be “saved” or taken care of – thankfully! – is dying.  But how do we move into the next paradigm of compassion, respect, equality and love?

One way is through conscious loving and authentic communications.  This is when we are mindfully aware of our wounds and how we learned to compensate for them as children. Usually there is some level of inauthenticity regarding these “assets.”  We must be aware of how we learned to seduce people into liking our “false selves” or personas and be brave enough to be authentic and vulnerable (which can be quite scary). And the first thing you need is a loving non-judgmental relationship with someone who is empathetic, loving and accepting of the whole you, not just the glitzy exteriors that we tend to choose to show the world – particularly the way we present our lives on the Internet.

Diet By The Decade: Your Guide To Feeling Great Every Decade

Every decade for a woman comes with new responsibilities, changing hormones and shifting nutritional needs. Trying to follow the best nutritional advice can be a daunting task, but easier if we can understand our nutritional needs for every decade. Knowing the best foods to include in your daily diet can leave you feeling your very best, regardless of your age.

The Roaring 20s

A busy decade for young women, most women at this age are busy founding their careers, starting families or exploring relationships. Women in their 20s need to focus their diets on getting enough of these key nutrients; calcium, iron and b vitamins. If you are in your 20s, look for foods high in calcium, including at least two servings of any of the following foods; dairy, almonds, and leafy green vegetables. To keep energy levels optimized, consider also adding a few servings of grass fed beef weekly. It is important to keep blood sugar levels stable through the day, so eating at regular intervals through the day is key.

The Hectic 30s

As women enter their 30s, their priorities shift. Fertility, healthy pregnancies and energy are still major goals for the majority of women. Missing nutrients that I find frequently on my patients include folic acid (b9), and healthy fats that are needed to support hormones. Keep your hormones balanced and your energy soaring by adding in foods high in folic acid. Navy beans, quinoa and leafy greens are good sources of folic acid. Good fat foods include salmon, walnuts, chia seeds and olive oil. These foods should find their way on your plate everyday!

The Fearsome 40s

The forties can be an exciting but challenging health decade for women. Further into perimenopause, women may find unexpected weight gain, irregular periods and changing skin and hair texture. Increasing protein intake can help balance blood sugar levels and prevent excessive weight gain. Another important mineral to include is magnesium. Magnesium can be found in dark chocolate, leafy greens and nuts. Magnesium deficiency heightens for women in their 40s, worsening sleep disturbances, symptoms of anxiety and constipation.

The Fabulous 50s

The 50s for women are about maintaining bone health, watching for inflammation and keeping cognition sharp. Foods high in vitamin D, including salmon, trout and fortified dairy can protect bones and prevent worsening of osteoporosis and osteopenia. Stick to an anti-inflammatory diet, one low in gluten, dairy, and sugar to lower your risk of inflammation. Up your intake of high antioxidant foods, including carrots, pomegranates and blueberries. These antioxidants can protect against cancer, Alzheimer’s and other diseases.

Follow these “diet by decade” rules to find your best health at any age.

Wine, Communism & Volcanoes: A Story of Chilean Wine

Wine, Communism & Volcanoes: A Story of Chilean Wine


Drive beyond the dusty provincial towns and the Chilean landscape is carpeted with 1?4 million acres of grapes that ripen perfectly in bright sunlight, warm days, and cool evenings. Labor, land, and grape prices are low, so Chilean wineries can make high quality wines at a fraction of the cost of those in California, Australia or Europe. Walker Elliott Rowe weaves a narrative of the Chilean people and culture, introducing the reader to many characters both inside and outside the wine business. The towering Andes Mountains are not the only item looming over the Chilean horizon-this progressive country, where the sentiment for socialism is strong, is still dealing with the ghosts of the former military dictator. Through his narrative, Rowe illustrates the irony of Chile’s strong system of capitalism that leaves most people working long hours at low wages.

11 Habits of Ridiculously Likeable People

2016-08-25-1472165418-1528300-11HabitsofRidiculouslyLikeablePeopleHP.jpg

Too many people succumb to the mistaken belief that being likeable comes from natural, unteachable traits that belong only to a lucky few–the good looking, the fiercely social, and the incredibly talented. It’s easy to fall prey to this misconception.

When I speak to smaller audiences, I often ask them to describe the most likeable people they have ever worked with. People inevitably ignore innate characteristics (intelligence, extraversion, attractiveness, and so on) and instead focus on qualities that are completely under people’s control, such as approachability, humility, and positivity.

These qualities, and others like them, describe people who are skilled in emotional intelligence (EQ). TalentSmart research data from more than a million people shows that people who possess these skills aren’t just highly likeable, they outperform those who don’t by a large margin. Ninety percent of top performers have high EQs, people with high EQs make $ 29,000 more annually than people with low EQs, and a single-point increase in your EQ adds $ 1,300 to your salary. I could go on and on.

Being likeable is under your control, and it’s a matter of emotional intelligence. Unlike innate, fixed characteristics, such as your intelligence (IQ), EQ is a flexible skill that you can improve with effort.

To help you improve your EQ, I did some digging to uncover the key behaviors that emotionally intelligent people engage in that make them so likeable.

1. They are genuine. Being genuine and honest is essential to being likeable. No one likes a fake. People gravitate toward those who are genuine because they know they can trust them. It is difficult to like someone when you don’t know who they really are and how they really feel.

Likeable people know who they are. They are confident enough to be comfortable in their own skin. By concentrating on what drives you and makes you happy as an individual, you become a much more interesting person than if you attempt to win people over by making choices that you think will make them like you.

2. They ask thoughtful questions. The biggest mistake people make when it comes to listening is they’re so focused on what they’re going to say next or how what the other person is saying is going to affect them that they fail to hear what’s being said. The words come through loud and clear, but the meaning is lost. A simple way to avoid this is to ask a lot of questions. People like to know you’re listening, and something as simple as a clarification question shows that not only are you listening, you also care about what they’re saying. You’ll be surprised how much respect and appreciation you gain just by asking questions.

3. They don’t pass judgment. If you want to be likeable you must be open-minded. Being open-minded makes you approachable and interesting to others. No one wants to have a conversation with someone who has already formed an opinion and is not willing to listen.

Having an open mind is crucial in the workplace where approachability means access to new ideas and help. To eliminate preconceived notions and judgment, you need to see the world through other people’s eyes. This doesn’t require you believe what they believe or condone their behavior, it simply means you quit passing judgment long enough to truly understand what makes them tick. Only then can you let them be who they are.

4. They don’t seek attention. People are averse to those who are desperate for attention. You don’t need to develop a big, extroverted personality to be likeable. Simply being friendly and considerate is all you need to win people over. When you speak in a friendly, confident, and concise manner, you will notice that people are much more attentive and persuadable than if you try to show them you’re important. People catch on to your attitude quickly and are more attracted to the right attitude than what–or how many people–you know.

When you’re being given attention, such as when you’re being recognized for an accomplishment, shift the focus to all the people who worked hard to help you get there. This may sound cliché, but if it’s genuine, the fact that you pay attention to others and appreciate their help will show that you’re appreciative and humble–two adjectives that are closely tied to likeability.

5. They are consistent. Few things make you more unlikeable than when you’re all over the place. When people approach you, they like to know whom they’re dealing with and what sort of response they can expect. To be consistent you must be reliable, and you must ensure that even when your mood goes up and down it doesn’t affect how you treat other people.

6. They use positive body language. Becoming cognizant of your gestures, expressions, and tone of voice (and making certain they’re positive) will draw people to you like ants to a picnic. Using an enthusiastic tone, uncrossing your arms, maintaining eye contact, and leaning towards the person who’s speaking are all forms of positive body language that high-EQ people use to draw others in. Positive body language can make all the difference in a conversation.

It’s true that how you say something can be more important than what you say.

7. They leave a strong first impression.
Research shows most people decide whether or not they like you within the first seven seconds of meeting you. They then spend the rest of the conversation internally justifying their initial reaction. This may sound terrifying, but by knowing this you can take advantage of it to make huge gains in your likeability. First impressions are tied intimately to positive body language. Strong posture, a firm handshake, smiling, and opening your shoulders to the person you are talking to will help ensure that your first impression is a good one.

8. They greet people by name. Your name is an essential part of your identity, and it feels terrific when people use it. Likeable people make certain they use others’ names every time they see them. You shouldn’t use someone’s name only when you greet him. Research shows that people feel validated when the person they’re speaking with refers to them by name during a conversation.

If you’re great with faces but have trouble with names, have some fun with it and make remembering people’s names a brain exercise. When you meet someone, don’t be afraid to ask her name a second time if you forget it right after you hear it. You’ll need to keep her name handy if you’re going to remember it the next time you see her.

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

10. They know who to touch (and they touch them). When you touch someone during a conversation, you release oxytocin in their brain, a neurotransmitter that makes their brain associate you with trust and a slew of other positive feelings. A simple touch on the shoulder, a hug, or a friendly handshake is all it takes to release oxytocin. Of course, you have to touch the right person in the right way to release oxytocin, as unwanted or inappropriate touching has the opposite effect. Just remember, relationships are built not just from words, but also from general feelings about each other. Touching someone appropriately is a great way to show you care.

11. They balance passion and fun. People gravitate toward those who are passionate. That said, it’s easy for passionate people to come across as too serious or uninterested because they tend to get absorbed in their work. Likeable people balance their passion with the ability to have fun. At work they are serious, yet friendly. They still get things done because they are socially effective in short amounts of time and they capitalize on valuable social moments. They minimize small talk and gossip and instead focus on having meaningful interactions with their coworkers. They remember what you said to them yesterday or last week, which shows that you’re just as important to them as their work.

Bringing It All Together

Likeable people are invaluable and unique. They network with ease, promote harmony in the workplace, bring out the best in everyone around them, and generally seem to have the most fun. Add these skills to your repertoire and watch your likeability soar!

For Presidential Candidates, 70 is the new 45

by Dr. Mehmet Oz & Dr. Michael Roizen

Controversy blossomed this week surrounding the health of our presidential candidates. That’s because we’re heading into this fall’s presidential election knowing relatively little about the medical history of either major-party candidate, and at 68 and 70, respectively, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump would be among the oldest people ever elected to the office of the president. Ronald Reagan, the oldest so far, was 69 when he was elected to his first term, 73 for his second term, and 77 when he left office. Only 10 of our 43 presidents entered office older than 60.

For many of us, the health of the president is an important issue when casting our ballots. While we don’t and shouldn’t take someone’s age or health into consideration when hiring for a typical job, the role of the president is an extraordinary position. Health is also one of our nation’s most important issues, and a healthy president sets a better example for us all to follow.

Some say that in this election, the health of the candidates is even more important than ever, because of their chronological age. We understand this concern, because aging can definitely affect stamina and mental quickness. On average, we (kidneys, liver, heart, even bone mass, and brain functioning) decline 5 percent every 10 years. So by age 70, your IQ is, on average, 20% lower than at age 30. In addition, we have examined the medical records of all of the presidents since Teddy Roosevelt and found that after someone gets into the Oval Office, they age two years for every one year on the job.

But while the calendar age of Secretary Clinton and Donald Trump would traditionally qualify them as elderly, today we also know that a president’s real age is more important than his/her chronological age. Your real age is determined by your habits and environment. For those who engage in the healthiest habits and are in the healthiest environments, 70 truly is the new 45. As a result of improvements in public health and medicine, all Americans, on average, live much longer than when we elected our first president 227 years ago. Over just the last 100 years, average life expectancy has increased more than 20 years, from around 55 in 1916 to nearly 79 today.

These life expectancy numbers are typically based on averages, but no matter your political preference, everyone can surely agree that our presidential candidates are far from average in many ways. We know that social determinants, such as educational level and income, are among the most important factors for longevity. The more education you have, where you live, and your job correlate with how long you live and how healthy you are. According to research, women and men with 16 or more years of education (Secretary Clinton has 19 and Mr. Trump has 16) are expected to have an increase in life span as much as 8 and 13 years respectively. In addition, those in the highest income brackets (again, this includes both candidates) have been estimated to have a life expectancy about 14.6 years longer than those in the lowest income brackets. These social advantages suggest that both candidates are likely to have a longer life expectancy than most voters – a fact that we hope the winning candidate will address while in office so as to improve the health of everyone in our nation.

Fortunately, healthy habits in our control are even more important for our health than our social situation. Data from the nation’s biggest health studies, including the Nurse’s Health Study, the Health Professional’s Study, and the Medicare Studies suggest that chronic disease is reduced by 80-90% and cognitive function improved in people who engage in the “six healthy habits” and are up-to-date on their immunizations. The more of these healthy habits you have, the younger relative to your calendar age you are. We estimate that someone who has all six of these habits has the cognitive abilities of someone more than ten years younger than their chronological age. These six healthy habits include eating right, managing stress, being socially connected, being physically active, avoiding tobacco and excessive alcohol, and getting enough sleep. While we don’t have perfect data on the candidate’s health and all of their habits, we can make some inferences from what we’ve seen in the media.

Just the act of actively campaigning for the past 16 or so months indicates that the candidates are able to tolerate substantial stress. They are both very social and connected to strong, supportive families and the people they meet every day. Secretary Clinton enjoys exercising regularly and Mr. Trump plays golf. We would bet that they also both get in a lot of steps pounding the pavement and shaking hands. We also know that neither candidate smokes nor drinks much, if any, alcohol. Now, according to reports in the media, when it comes to eating, Secretary Clinton (who tries to eat healthfully) may be doing a better job than Mr. Trump (who often eats fast food), and neither of them is getting much sleep. While we don’t have all of their data, it’s fair to say that they are both mentally sharper than the “average” person with their chronological age, and from a health perspective, likely fit to be president.

Stephen King: Maine Governor Is A ‘Bigot, A Homophobe, And A Racist’

Novelist Stephen King called Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) a “bigot, homophobe and a racist” on Saturday, after a week in which the governor made several inflammatory remarks.

King, who is a longtime Maine resident, sent the tweet after the governor used a homophobic slur against a Democratic lawmaker because he believed the man had called him a racist.

Earlier in the week, LePage said he keeps a binder filled with mugshots of everyone who had been arrested for dealing drugs in the state, and that more than 90 percent of the people in it were black or Hispanic. Ninety-five percent of Maine residents are white, according to U.S. Census data.

On Friday, the governor denied that police were engaging in racial profiling in arrests for drug dealing, and called people of color and Hispanics “the enemy.”

Last year, LePage accused King of leaving the state to avoid taxes ― a claim that wasn’t true. King said that LePage should “man up and apologize” to him, but the governor refused.

Thought-Provoking Questions

Often, when I am booked for lectures or radio and television interviews, I am provided questions in advance to help me prepare. Some of the questions are provocative, the kind that make me stop and think. So much so, I am sharing a few here with my replies.

1. What are three principles you live by?
a) “Identify the fear and then go there.” Usually I’m afraid because it is something I have never done before, and so I figure I will at least learn something new. I always ask myself: What is the worst-case scenario? If it’s one I can deal with, I go for it.
b) “Not everything worth doing is worth doing well.” Being stuck striving for perfection will not allow you to move on. For me, this pertains to writing. It is never finished and can always be improved upon. But at some point, it must be abandoned. Of course, this does not apply to everything; be sure to use discernment.
c) “Maintain an open mind.” I try to not be judgmental or assume that I know best. I listen and attempt to understand other points of view, seeing them in the contexts of culture and personality. When presented with a new opportunity, I ask myself: Will I learn something?

2. Do you believe nature or nurture has more impact?
People are born with specific tendencies; some children are shy, some are outgoing. This is a natural component of our genes, but then life experiences also impact our brains. Successes can reinforce behavior while failures discourage future attempts. So it is both. First it is nature, then nurture. Both have an equal influence.

3. What do you wish you knew then that you know now?
I wish I had not cared so much about what other people thought of me. As women, we try to please others more than necessary. Speak the truth as often as possible and be willing to be disliked, but respected.

4. What did you wish to be when you were a child?
My childhood dream was to be a poet. I won a poetry contest for a poem I wrote when I was eight. This early success inspired me to continue writing poems, which I still do today.

5. What role does luck play in success?
Obviously, luck plays a part–you have to be at the right place, at the right time, with the right people. However, success is also “opportunity meeting preparation.” I am always scanning my environment to look for ways to make a contribution and a difference.

6. What are the barriers to female leadership?
“MEN!” There is still gender discrimination, both conscious and unconscious, even by well-meaning men. Our culture continues to be dominated by male values, and, in the majority of cases, even when shown the same resume with a male or female name, men are chosen over women for both promotions and as new hires.

7. What was your biggest challenge?
a) Acceptance. As the only woman on the faculty of a business school, the first woman in a Rotary Club, the only female consultant in all-male organizations, I faced issues of acceptance. I did not try to blend in, as I knew this was not possible, so I stood out by wearing red suits, sitting on the arms of chairs to make me look taller (I am barely 5 feet tall).
b) A close second was being ignored–not only feeling invisible, but, also, not heard, and (when earned) not rewarded.

8. What changes in the workplace would you like to see?
I would like to see flexible working hours as a norm at work. This would permit time off not only for child-related needs, but, also, for the increasing needs of aging parents. Men must be provided with the same opportunity to take an equal share of these responsibilities without negative consequences in the workplace. What do you attribute your success to?
The willingness to ask the first question, using an assertive voice, looking others in the eye while conversing, giving credit when credit is due, looking and sounding confident (even when I do not feel that way), being well-prepared by knowing the agenda and relevant facts, and lastly, believing in myself.

9. What are the three rules you live by?
a) First of all, have fun. b) Do no harm. c) Be as helpful to as many people as possible.
I am urging you, my readers, to do the same. Think of each question as it relates to you, your values, philosophies, experiences, your life overall. Take time to answer these questions honestly and you might gain new insights–perhaps discover some unconscious motivations.

Here’s What Parents Of Kids With Life-Threatening Allergies Think Of The EpiPen Price Increases

Jennifer DiMercurio’s 7-year-old son, Liam, relies on the EpiPen, an auto injector used to treat anaphylactic shock, to save his life in the case of a severe allergic reaction. The device delivers a dose of epinephrine that’s worth about $ 1. But over the past nine years, Mylan, the pharmaceutical company which makes the EpiPen, has increased the price of the patented injecting device from $ 100 to $ 600.

That increase put the DiMercurios in a bind. In January 2015, DiMercurio’s husband started a new job that didn’t include health insurance. The family turned to the private market, where they found a plan that would cover Liam and Jennifer, who had developed a Latex allergy ― but it had a hefty deductible. So on two occasions, after using up their stash to save each others’ lives, the family had to borrow funds from relatives to replace their EpiPens.

This summer, DiMercurio’s husband started a new job ― one that came with good health insurance. But the family couldn’t afford to buy the year’s EpiPens until the new insurance kicked in.

So for four months, they had to rely on expired models.

“I was scared to take my son out, especially as summer was coming ― even at the grocery store I’d be more worried and more on alert because I’ll be afraid,” DiMercurio said. “Especially having to use them myself I’ve seen now how important it is to use it quickly and how fast it happens, and you don’t know if your pen is going to work because it’s expired.”

Presidential candidates, politicians and the press have spent the past week slamming Mylan for the price increases. Since no rival generic products have Food and Drug Administration approval, Mylan has an almost complete monopoly. Mylan’s CEO Heather Bresch, who is the daughter of Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), announced Thursday that the company would not cut the price of the injectors, but would increase the maximum it would offer to families in its copay assistance program from $ 100 to $ 300.

Parents of children with life-threatening allergies are still worried.

“So many of us are wondering if we’re going to be able to pay our mortgage if we pay for the pens,” DiMercurio said. “It’s bad enough when kids’ lives are lost just because they didn’t use an EpiPen quickly enough, but to not have it for a financial reason is despicable. It’s all we have and Mylan monopolized the market.”

FINANCIAL SACRIFICE

Aleasa Word, a working single mom in Atlanta, started saving last September to buy enough EpiPens for her two kids with food allergies to make it through the school year. The packs expire, so they need to be replaced each year, even if they aren’t used. Even with her insurance, a two-pack of EpiPens (they’re only sold in sets of two) costs her about $ 600, and she needs four packs to cover both her children ― one for each of them to carry, and one for each of them to have at school.

That comes out to a total of $ 2,400.

“I am willing to sacrifice whatever I need to sacrifice to get my children their medication,” Word said. “EpiPen is not optional in my house. I can’t not have it.”

Joy Velozo, a mother from Massachusetts, said she worries about the impact the price increase has on families that can no longer afford them. Her son, who will be 12 at the end of the month, is allergic to all nuts, eggs and shellfish. He has been home-schooled since last year in part because his local school would not guarantee that he would not be exposed to allergens in the upper classes, where students switch desks and classrooms throughout the day.

“I can’t imagine having to pay full price to have four sets of EpiPens to know he was covered in every situation,” she said.

Julianne DeNicola’s 7-year-old son, Joseph, died after he came into contact with pizza oil that had touched cheese ― enough to set off his extreme dairy allergy. Although his father administered an EpiPen shortly after his reaction, Joseph didn’t get the drug fast enough.

“This isn’t just an over-the-counter product,” DeNicola said. “This is Russian Roulette. You can’t put a price tag on life.”

DeNicola said she has talked to other parents who say they have been forced to choose between a mortgage payment, putting aside money for college tuition, or buying a new set of EpiPens.

RISING RISKS

Other parents told HuffPost they’d heard of families splitting packs ― one EpiPen for home, one to carry ― as the cost of EpiPens has risen. This is dangerous. EpiPens are sold in packs of two in case someone needs more than one dose or the first EpiPen fails to deploy due to user error.

The possibility that more families could end up splitting the EpiPen packs terrifies Georgina Cornago Cipriano. She became an food allergy activist after her 14-year-old son, Giovanni, accidentally ingested something with peanuts and died.

“It’s becoming a luxury to be able to have an EpiPen. There are people that have multiple children with food allergies ― how can you afford them?” Cipriano asked. “You have to have more than one set. And you have to have two everywhere you go ― you never know if the first one could malfunction. You don’t know if the first one is going to be enough.”

When asked about families splitting the packs, DiMercurio said that she once had to use two of the EpiPens at the same time on her own son to get his reaction under control. But she’s had to rely on expired pens herself, so she understands the inclination to cut corners for cost.

THE NECESSITY FOR ACCESS

In September 2013, Josephine Espinosa’s 13-year-old son Cameron was bitten by a swarm of fire ants during a football huddle in Corpus Christi, Texas. He’d had no previous allergy issues ― much like 25 percent of children who suffer their first allergic reaction in school ― but the mix of ant bites and adrenaline caused a severe allergic reaction that killed him.

The school did not have an EpiPen on hand, which Josephine believes could have saved his life.

“Once I found out an EpiPen could have saved my son, I knew I had to do something so that other parents don’t have to go through what we go through every day,” Espinosa said.

Last summer, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) signed Senate Bill 66, known as the Cameron Espinosa Act, into law, which requires public and charter schools in Texas to stock EpiPens and train staff on how to use them. Last school year was the first the law went into effect.

“It does give me a little peace of mind that [this is the law in Texas],” Espinosa said. “This is a nightmare, every day is a struggle. No parent should have to go through that.”

Eleven states in the country require all schools to carry EpiPens. The law in Texas does not apply to private schools.

Many emergency vehicles do not carry EpiPens or epinephrine on board. And many basic emergency medical technicians do not have access or may not be allowed to administer anything other than the patient’s own EpiPen, according to Food Allergy Research & Education, a nonprofit that advocates for the 15 million Americans who suffer from food allergies.

THE FEAR NEVER GOES AWAY

Parents of children with food allergies wonder every day if they’re going to get a phone call saying their child is having a life-threatening reaction, Velozo said.

The parents of those who have lost a child “are like the salespeople for EpiPens,” DeNicola said. “We’re the advocates on why they need to have it.”

“We walk on land mines every single day,” said Word, who organizes Love Remembers Day, an annual commemoration for those who have lost a loved one to food-induced anaphylaxis.

“I hate to get the phone call, I hate to get the emails,” she said. “And I don’t want to have a conversation on Love Remembers Day, and it’s because someone couldn’t afford their EpiPen.”

September

September


Set in the England of the 1950’s, September is a period love story with a strong element of the supernatural. Start time – 1950. Location – The English Lake District. Calum Lachlan, a 40-year-old bachelor, landowner and hero of World War Two, is driving along a lonely Lakeland road when he is flagged down by a highly distressed young woman who appears to have been the victim of a violent attack. The stranger merely introduces herself as September and will say nothing about how she came to be where she is, where she is going or from whence she came. It is raining and late on a Sunday evening and, reluctantly, Calum feels it incumbent upon himself to offer the woman food and shelter for the night. Thus commences a journey which, whilst beginning in good faith and charity, rapidly moves the reader through many of the fraught emotions and behaviours which, sadly, so often define human life – loneliness, decency, love, romance and even adultery. Then, as this darker side of human nature manifests itself, raw evil, and cynical treachery combine to create the dire but often inevitable corollary of such an unholy pairing – brutal, pre-meditated, cold-blooded murder! Finally incarcerated in the dark reaches of the 12th century castle prison at Lancaster, abandoned by the wife who so successfully and comprehensively framed him and in the long, threatening, and sinister shadow of the gallows and the hangman’s noose; Calum waits. Waits with only the company of the spectre of someone from the shadowy reaches of his violent past to comfort him, waits to learn about his own, very uncertain future; or perhaps more accurately, if he is to be allowed to have one.

Trump Is Closer Than You Think

2016-08-26-1472200461-4174975-trumpclinton.jpg

The Real Clear Politics average of election polls shows Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton leading Republican Donald J. Trump by 6.0 percentage points nationally as of August 25. While popular votes do not equate with electoral victory, Mrs. Clinton’s 4.5 point lead in even a four-way race suggests that, should the election be held today, she would be the easy winner.

Per RCP, polls in critical swing states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Virginia, New Hampshire, and Colorado – states in which Mrs. Clinton holds at least a 9% advantage and often higher – also point to a comfortable victory for her come November.

2016-08-26-1472200615-6464789-swingstates2016.jpg

Moreover, Mr. Trump’s repeated failure to nimbly capitalize on Mrs. Clinton’s sundry scandals (including Server Gate and the pay-to-play shenanigans at the Clinton Foundation) suggest that Mrs. Clinton is right to take a long vacation from the campaign trail (wild conjectures about the true state of her health, notwithstanding).

2016-08-26-1472200941-9529082-ClintonandCrownPrinceBahrainAFP640x480.jpg

She should be able to coast to victory by playing it safe – running on a de facto mantra of “I’m Not Trump!” – much like Republican Thomas Dewey played it safe back in 1948 against Democratic incumbent Harry Truman (who, like Trump, also suffered from major defections within his party’s ranks).

Only one problem: Truman won. He won precisely because his opponent played it safe right to the end.

2016-08-26-1472200743-4190676-trumandewey.jpg

To be fair, Mrs. Clinton does not appear to be playing it safe, as her righteous supporters will exclaim. After all, when she is out campaigning (albeit rarely this month) and giving press conferences (okay, she hasn’t done a real one in 266 days), she routinely goes for the ad hominem jugular, which her mainstream media echo chamber pals – many of whom are former paid employees or consultants of Clinton campaigns and/or foundations – repeat ad nauseam. Her most recent ad – which essentially calls Trump, his supporters, and his new campaign CEO white supremacists – really goes out on the race-baiting limb.

On the surface, one would not think such ribald caricatures classify as “playing it safe.” However, when it comes to the rogue candidacy of Donald J. Trump, they do. You see, Mrs. Clinton is using the same strategy deployed by Mr. Trump’s top opponents in the GOP primary. Texas Senator Ted Cruz, a Harvard-educated lawyer previously excoriated in this space, who’s actually presented cases before the Supreme Court, descended to desperately calling Mr. Trump “a narcissist” and “pathological liar.”

Marco Rubio, a normally emotionally intelligent Senator from Florida, resorted to insulting Trump’s hair, face, hands, and, by extension if you will, his sexual prowess.

After short bumps in the polls, the Cruz and Rubio campaigns imploded, in part, by trying to play on Mr. Trump’s vicious, reality TV turf. There is only room for one boorish cad in this election cycle. And Trump owns that lane.

By trying to out-Trump Trump, Mrs. Clinton risks turning off voters who have grown tired of the lowbrow nastiness of this election season. Lower voter turnout, in an electorate where 43% of voters identify as Independent, is bad for any Democrat (whose turnout numbers can vary widely), but especially for Mrs. Clinton, whose negatives are higher than any Democratic candidate in modern U.S. political history.

In basketball, we call this kind of contest “playing ugly.” And the uglier this campaign gets, the more it discourages Independents and Democrats from voting. Thus, the more Trump benefits.

After all, his supporters are inured to any sort of ugliness. They stuck with him through his attacks on Vietnam POW John McCain, a physically handicapped New York Times reporter, a Mexican-American judge, and his sundry attacks on Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, which I chastised him for in this space. Trump is right. He could shoot someone on 5th Avenue, and his core supporters would not desert him.

2016-08-26-1472201222-9625310-trumpvoters.jpg

These supporters were of such sufficient numbers in the GOP primary that he could win states with only 40% of the vote. But, in the general election their numbers are not sufficient. Nevertheless, in a low turnout election, with third party candidates Jill Stein (Green Party) and Gary Johnson (Libertarian) quietly and collectively siphoning away at least 15% of the vote, they could prove critical.

However, there are two other things going on that should have the Clinton camp reaching for the Xanax. First, history is on Mr. Trump’s side, and not only because it is historically difficult for the party occupying the Oval Office for two straight terms to win a third term. As you learn from a string of Trump surrogates – from Rudy Giuliani to Newt Gingrich – almost every night, and as Gallup data confirm, August polling results mean almost nothing.

In August 1980, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan were tied. Reagan eventually won by 19 percentage points. In August of 1988, Michael Dukakis led George Bush, Sr. by 17 points. Bush the Elder won by 8 points. In August 2000, George W. Bush was 16 points ahead of Al Gore. Dubya actually finished a half-point behind Gore in the popular vote, though he ended up winning the Presidency in the Electoral College.

Secondly, Trump voters are possibly under-counted in telephone polls, as former Clinton advisor Dick Morris notes in his new book Armageddon: How Trump Can Beat Hillary. The argument behind this theory is that media bias against Trump, as persuasively verfied by Michael Goodwin in the New York Post, has contributed to public shaming of Trump voters. Moreover, the violence perpetrated by the left at Trump rallies, the widespread stealing and vandalizing of Trump signs all over the country, and the intimidation of students who dare to wear Trump attire is so great that many of these supporters have gone into hiding. If people think that they will be maliciously shamed or physically beaten for expressing their true feelings about a candidate, do you honestly think that they are going to be free and easy with their sentiments should a pollster ask their opinion by phone?

Morris quotes research showing that Donald Trump’s actual vote totals in GOP primaries were often 5% higher than what the last poll in a given primary indicated. This, he claims, showed not only that late-breaking voters went for Trump, but also social desirability bias might be going on as well, especially when Trump’s massively funded opponent can – without any mainstream media push-back – run ads everywhere demonizing anyone who dares to support Trump as a KKK-supporting racist.

2016-08-26-1472201414-3681850-nigelfaragedonaldtrump.jpg

We saw this pattern previously with polls around Brexit. Those in favor of Brexit were routinely under-reported. Contrary to what Democratic pollster Anna Greenberg mistakenly claimed on this platform, the same pattern might be happening with Trump voters, who might – like studies of Brexit polling proved – be harder to reach, harder to classify, and harder to read.

The confirmation of this bias might be found in Trump’s statistical dead heat with Clinton in two online polls (USC/LA Times, and Zogby).

If this online polling proves to be the correct barometer of Trump’s anti-Establishment support, then, as with the Brexit polling (which had Remain leading by 10 percentage points, per Brexit leader Nigel Farage, only a few months out), the true state of the U.S. Presidential race might be much closer than the RCP polling average currently indicates.

In Silence I Heard A Voice, It Was My Own

I’ve had the good fortune recently to have a great deal of space and time to myself living out in the country. If “time is money” in the city, then the country is Fort Knox. Things move slower out here where things like the brute tango between a rooster and his chickens serves as entertainment. Living with nature has given me the luxury of a much needed step back from the incessant demands of life back in the city. I’ve been able to reassess my priorities, and recalibrate the value I assign to the people, places and things in my life. It’s remarkable how an open, natural setting after a long stint in a crowded city can reground us. I can actually hear myself think out here. For the first time, in a long while, I’m listening to my inner voice again.

Some of us have had the luxury of a much needed vacation on a remote beach somewhere, where there is nothing but empty space and time to indulge on our own inner voice. We get stressed and need vacations precisely because our daily demands too often do not align with that voice. Then, usually towards the end of the vacation, when we can finally hear ourselves think again, we resolve to keep that inner dialogue going when we get back home — only to lose it before lunch on the first day at the office. We may even hear this voice from time to time outside of vacations, but it seems to surface just in time for our phone, buzzing with a notification, to let us know what we should really be thinking about.

We each have a unique voice within us that originates from the natural flow of what’s happening in each moment. It isn’t the voice that imposes the ego’s expectations on life. Instead, it gives us brilliant insights to life’s biggest challenges, while serving the highest good. That is, if we can even hear the voice to begin with. You see, the voice that offers the best guidance doesn’t scream at us or demand that we listen to it. It doesn’t interrupt or boast like an advertisement or a salesman, trying to convince us that we don’t already have everything we need. It’s a quiet, humble voice. It doesn’t tell you to get more things, instead it helps you to let things go.

Stripping away the excesses that drown out our inner voice comes from living cleanly and simply. If you’ve ever done a cleansing diet that removes solid food for a time, you know the life-changing benefits of having a clean gut. Once clean, we can add foods back into to our diets one at a time so that we can more accurately identify the ones that cause us problems. It’s the same with our stomachs as it is with our minds. To truly thrive, we must set aside enough time to cleanse our thoughts. Only then can the smog of fear dissipate from our minds. And then, when we’re ready based on our own needs, we can rebuild by adding things back in one at a time. Without this process of deep cleansing for our minds, we might never find what’s holding us back from realizing our life’s true purpose.

My heartfelt wish is that every one of you and the people you care about can find a way to create the space and time you need to hear and heed your own inner voice. I know it feels impossible sometimes. But when things are the craziest is when we most need to take a step back and reassess. We don’t need more people selling us solutions to our problems, we have no shortage of that. What we need are more ways to help ourselves find enough silence to hear our own voices again. I found mine out in the country and it said to write this post. Where will you find yours?

THE DOCTOR IS IN! Philanthropist Medicine Man DOCTOR MIKE Helps Raise Awareness And Funds For Breast Cancer With THE SUSAN G. KOMEN GREATER NYC RACE FOR THE CURE!

      With breast cancer being unfortunately the second leading cause of death for women in the United States, and the statistics for the illness sadly being so high, it seems as though everyone can say they know someone who has suffered from breast cancer. But, not everyone can say they know a ridiculously handsome, intelligent and charming doctor that is so dedicated to the cause and that actually cares– if they could, mothers would be lining up to meet them so that they could introduce this catch to their daughters! And that’s where Doctor Mike comes in.

     Dr. Mikhail Varshavski, also known as “Doctor Mike,” is a third year medicine resident focusing on family and sports care in Overlook Medical Center in Summit, NJ. Having come to Brooklyn, NY from Russia at six years old, Doctor Mike watched his parents with wide eyes as his father attended medical school and his mother swept floors to make ends meet. The handsome young doctor’s dedication to medicine only increased when he was inspired by the relationships between his father and his patients. When Doctor Mike lost his mother to CLL during his first year of medical school, he only became more passionate to help others, vigorously pushing himself to finish up his studies.

     A contributor to several popular online publications, and having been published in esteemed research journals, Doctor Mike has already branched out past medicine and used the world of social media to do good in the world. A powerful entrepreneur and an extremely kind philanthropist, this brilliant and beautiful healer has managed to use his platform to spread awareness and educate others on how to keep themselves and others healthy. Not only is Doctor Mike involved in several organizations, he even launched his own charity; The Limitless Tomorrow Foundation, which seeks to empower candidates to reach their full potential and overcome hardships.

     And of course, another organization that Doctor Mike is a part of and that he is very passionate about is the Susan G. Komen foundation. With September being breast cancer awareness month and the illness being a diagnosis everyone should know about, the Race For The Cure in Central Park is the perfect fundraising opportunity to help out a good cause- and it’s no surprise that Doctor Mike is taking part!

     With a heart so warm it could melt the arctic, looks so good they could put any top model to shame, and a brain so innovative that it could lead to revolutionary discoveries in medicine, it would be great to see Doctor Mike get his own show! Luckily, the impressive doctor agreed to an appointment for an interview to talk all about all the wonderful things he has coming up, how to get involved, and how to see him!

 

So, you are going to be at the Susan G. Komen Greater NYC 5k race/walk in Central Park. Can you talk about the race a little bit and why it’s important people come out for it, and why it’s also important that people get checked for breast cancer?

The event is a yearly event that Susan G. Komen hosts in central park in New York City to not only raise awareness for breast cancer and the illness, but also to raise funds for research and to help out those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, as well as their families. I’m a family doctor and a big part of what I do is preventative care, and breast cancer is one of the illnesses that women suffer from greatly in this country. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. It’s also the number two leading cause of death in the United States for women, and it’s a preventable cause of death- which is something I’m incredibly passionate about, and the reason for that is because it can be prevented with simple checks; like a breast exam combined with mammogram. And women aren’t fully aware of what is going on, nor are their families. There are still a lot of misconceptions out there, and I think that the Susan G. Komen foundation does a great job of educating women about breast cancer, as well as educating the general public about the illness and the current treatments we have out there, and frankly we need more research in the field to see what’s appropriate and what could be done better, and the way that we do that is by raising funds. So, the Susan G. Komen foundation is really a great organization for that, and I thought it would be the perfect foundation for me to get involved with.

               

And not only women are at risk for breast cancer, but men are at risk also. Can you go into detail on that, and why it’s important for men to show up to get checked?

Men are at risk for breast cancer as well, that’s absolutely true. 1-2% of breast cancers are related to men. So, if men do feel something abnormal on their bodies, it is very important they share that with their primary care doctors. It’s a disease with a lot of speculation surrounding the illness where people think that we’re over-screening, or over-checking, but really the importance of catching the diagnosis early outweighs any negativity that might come along with the notion of doing too much screening. But, in general, I do believe we need more research, and the way we get that done is by raising awareness and raising funds through events just like this one.

 

When did you know that you wanted to be a doctor and that you wanted to help people?

So, originally I was in high school and I was studying biology and I got really interested in the field of medicine. And then, I got a lot of early exposure to it because my father’s a physician and I saw the relationship that he had with his patients, and it was something that drew my attention to how wonderful the field was. The patients that came into his office weren’t his clients, he didn’t have duties to his clients in the way that others had duties to their shareholders like other professionals, but he had a duty to these people who trusted him with their lives, and he became their friend. They would come to him for advice. They trusted him with their lives and the lives of their loved ones- and I really fell in love with that sort of relationship. I loved that continuity where you could follow someone throughout their life and see how they change from childhood to adulthood to the elderly, and you get to see how the progression of life changes. To help someone as they go through life is wonderful not just on the medical standpoint, but on the psychological standpoint as well, and I fell in love with the field of medicine that way, and I thought that my communication skills were a great fit for building these relationships with patients so that they can divulge more of their information on what ails them and we can make a better educated decision together on how to help them, and furthermore be able to educate them about their illness.  

 

And where can people go in order to schedule an appointment with you if they want to get an appointment with Doctor Mike?

I work at Overlook Medical Center in Summit, New Jersey, and they have a family medicine center that is fantastic. You can call our office, it’s listed right on the internet at the website; http://www.atlantichealth.org/overlook/ and you can schedule an appointment with me. We can do a preventative health visit, so there’s no need to actually be sick in order to come see me. It’s just as important to maintain your health as it is to see a doctor when you’re already sick.

 

Being that this September is breast cancer awareness month, how else can people get involved in helping raise funds or awareness for the cause?

Primarily, the greatest way to get involved is to partner up with a great foundation like Susan G. Komen Foundation that already has the outlets in order to get the most reach possible. So, volunteering for an event like the 5K walk in Central Park is amazing because this is a huge event and we need a lot of help with it. Raising funds is a great help you can help by simply asking your family members, or co-workers for a few dollars and maybe making the event in someone’s memory to someone you lost to breast cancer or someone you know that is suffering, as it would be a great way to remember them or help them fight the ongoing battle, because we’ve all known someone that’s had the illness.

 

     Unfortunately, Doctor Mike is right again- the prevalence of breast cancer is too high and everyone does know someone that has suffered. And by getting involved in the Susan G.

A Gift For You: Walk In The Woods Meditation

2016-08-25-1472151034-8505504-WalkintheWoods.JPG
After decades of practicing meditation, four years of teaching happiness meditation classes and workshops, and now leading weekend retreats, I finally wrote my own guided meditation, “A Walk in the Woods.” Being in nature makes us happy, but it isn’t always possible to physically be outside drinking up the sights, sounds, and smells of a wooded trail. We can, however, savor the forest sensations mindfully by taking the time to mentally create or recreate that experience in as much detail as possible.

I was inspired by the local Trails Committee and by the transformative Helen Keller essay, Three Days to See. With gratitude to them, I offer the following meditation to you. Please make it your own. I’ve based the meditation on a summer walk in the Vermont woods, but your walk may be in the fall, spring or winter, on a real or imaginary trail. Create or recreate the experience that best suits you. The following is more a series of suggestions than a road map.

A Walk in the Woods

I invite you to start by easing into your meditation practice. With your eyes closed, let your breath out with an audible sigh. Do this several times if you like. Take a moment to notice all the places your body is in contact with the floor, chair, or cushions. Appreciate the support of the furniture and the building you are in, as well as the strength of the earth, making it safe for you to relax into your meditation time. Next, in an easy gentle fashion, focus on your breath, for a few minutes, until you feel ready to proceed. Take as much time with this transition as you want.

When you are ready, imagine you are at the trail head, ready to step in among the trees. Before you begin your walk, take time for gratitude. You may be grateful to have an able body. You might thank those who built the trail, or the landowners who share their property with the public. Perhaps your gratitude is for the weather, or for a strong pair of sneakers and good socks. What are you grateful for? Again, take your time. There is no need to hurry.

Remember to breathe.

Now, stepping into the woods, where do your feet land? What does the trail look like? Are there trail blazes or other markers on the trees? Who made them? Are there roots or rocks you might stumble over? Fallen branches? Are ferns or maybe even poison ivy growing near the trail? Is it a sunny day? What kinds of patterns does the play of light through the tree canopy make? Look around, what can you really see?

When we practice mindfulness, we can try to use all our senses. Right now, for example, what do you hear in your own little forest? Maybe leaves crunching underfoot? Or birds — is there a variety of bird calls if you really listen? Is it a still day, or is a breeze blowing? What does that sound like? Other animals? Insects whirring by your ear or chirping from afar? Maybe even traffic or construction noises off in the distance? Mindfulness is about more than appreciating beauty — it is, deeply observing what truly is.

Still breathing?

What does the air smell like? Did it rain recently? Are there rotting logs nearby? Do you smell your own shampoo, or toothpaste? Maybe there are flowers, or berries — do you want to lean in and breathe in their aroma?

And touch — is the air on your arms and face cool from the shade, or is it a hot sultry day even in the woods?

Even taste — did you bring a water bottle along? What does the water taste like? Any leftover meal flavors still lingering in your mouth? Did you pick a berry to eat? Was it sweet, sour, overripe?

Breathing deeper now, and looking more carefully around you. You’re surrounded by trees, but what species? Have any blown over, from the wind or maybe lightning? What bark do you see around you? Patterns? Growths on trees? Any holes in the trees? Perhaps holes made by animals, or perfect for animals to crawl into. And of course the leaves, or pine needles — different shapes, various shades of green? Are there also browns, and reds — trees in distress, or maybe autumn is coming on. It’s time to see the trees themselves, not just the forest. Are there any very old trees? Or very young ones? Any competing for the sunlight? What else?

Where would we be without trees? Can you feel gratitude for them?

Still remembering to breathe, turn now to the rocks and stones. Do you see ledge, or quartz? What sizes — boulders? Pebbles? Do you have to climb over any rocks? Are they moss-covered? Sharp, rounded? Maybe you can even spot one that is heart shaped.

Now we’re walking next to a mountain brook. Is your brook full and flowing forcefully? Maybe it just rained? Or is it late summer, with only a trickle? Pause and put your hand in. How cold is it? What does the brook sound like? What patterns do you see, in the way the water falls, and on the rocks below the surface? Linger by the brook as long as you’d like.

When you’re ready, notice that the trail is going up hill. What are the sensations in your muscles? Are you winded? Sweaty? Thirsty? How is your body doing on this hike? Or is it more of an easy going walk for you? Even on this mental journey, can you listen to your body’s experience?

In this moment, we’ve stepped out of the woods into a meadow. It may be sunny, or overcast. Is it hotter? Or is there a wind blowing, making your skin cooler? Looking up, what do you see in the skies? Have the sounds in the meadow changed from those in the woods? And sights — perhaps here you might see butterflies. What else is different on this part of the walk?

Finally we’ve arrived at an overlook, where conveniently there’s a bench to sit on and savor the view. What do you see? A lake in the distance? Mountains? A city? Is the view awe-inspiring? Does the larger vista give you a sense of place in the world, maybe putting your own cares in perspective? Can you pay attention to your feelings as well as the view? Just accepting your feelings, not trying to change them or judge them in any way.

Spend as long as you want sitting on the bench, taking in whatever is present for you in this moment.

Finally, let’s end this meditation the way we began: with gratitude. Grateful perhaps for beauty, for public policies that have preserved park land, for your own self to take this time to flex your mindfulness muscles and nurture your connection with the natural world. Who and what are you grateful for?

When you are ready, open your eyes and gently return to your regularly scheduled programming.

Feminist Artist Makes Women’s Bushes Bloom In Surreal Tribute To Mothers

When photographer Alexandra Sophie became pregnant, the way she viewed her body changed entirely.

“I felt like a seed was planted in a personal garden,” she explained in an email to The Huffington Post, “and it was growing each day until the clock would ring and the baby would know when he is ready to see the world.”

More unimaginable yet was the fact that such a miracle, at once surreal and commonplace, was happening so many times a day on all corners of the earth ― according to UNICEF, approximately 353,000 babies are born every day around the world.

Inspired by the powers of her own body, along with those of the many women around her both strangers and friends, Sophie embarked on a photography series titled “Blooming Garden.” Although the images pay homage to all the areas of resilience and vulnerability housed within a woman’s form, she photographs one region in particular.

The first photograph in the series, also titled “Blooming Garden,” visualized the fantastical sensation of containing within oneself the power to create, nourish, blossom and give birth. The simple and striking image, shot from above, depicts a rose, a daisy, various grasses and mossy patches adorning a woman’s pelvis.

To Sophie, this image represented motherhood, and specifically, the power of a woman’s body to bring life into the world. She soon realized, however, that her “Blooming Garden” represented one aspect of womanhood out of myriad possibilities ― some joyous, some strange, some painful and some taboo. 

“At first, I simply wanted [the project] to depict my personal feelings,” Sophie said. “Not especially to share with the world but simply with my family or husband, so they could understand and see a bit of what I felt. Later, when the series took shape, it became [apparent] that it was, simply, an homage to all women and how amazing we are!”

“It came all naturally, I didn’t have to overthink,” Sophie added. One piece titled “Virgin Territory” represents, yes, virginity, as symbolized by furry moss sprouting two diminutive mushrooms. Then there’s “Mûres,” which in French means both “blackberry” and “mature.” The photograph, meant to depict the act of menstruating, features a mound of blackberry’s between a woman’s thighs, dripping a deep, reddish juice. Another, called “Broken Eggs,” features splayed feathers and cracked eggshells, the remnants of a potential life lost.  

Sophie is also in the process of adding more works to the series, addressing issues including miscarriage, illness, old age, transsexuality, abortion, prenatal and postpartum depression. She also hopes, in future shoots, to capture a more diverse range of models, specifically in terms of age and body type. 

Through her series, Sophie hopes to represent a wide range of women ― the trials they endure, the transformations they undergo and the triumphs they achieve. “I take a special care to portray models within their natural strength,” she concluded. “What is more strong and fierce, anyway, than a person being themselves and assuming their choices?”

An Arkansas Judge Sent A Cancer Patient To ‘Debtors’ Prison’ Over A Few Bounced Checks

WASHINGTON ― Lee Robertson’s trouble began in late 2009, when he was undergoing his first stint of chemotherapy to battle the pancreatic cancer that had made it impossible for him to work. In the course of two weeks, Robertson wrote 11 checks at stores near his home for small amounts ranging from $ 5 to $ 41.

Robertson started off owing a few stores about $ 200. Six years and seven arrests later, in a closed courtroom in Sherwood District Court in Arkansas, Judge Milas “Butch” Hale sentenced the cancer patient to 90 days in jail. His crime? Owing the court $ 3,054.51.

That was last month. Robertson, 44, is now one of the plaintiffs in a class action federal civil rights lawsuit filed this week by the Arkansas Civil Liberties Union and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. The suit aims to take on what has been described as a “modern-day debtors’ prison” in the city of Sherwood. Similar practices exist in courts around the country, including in several cities in St. Louis County, which received attention for their debt collection practices following the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, two years ago. Groups like Equal Justice Under Law, ArchCity Defenders, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and the American Civil Liberties Union have been mounting challenges to unconstitutional court practices in many parts of the nation.

In Sherwood, the “Hot Check Division” of the municipal court is drawing scrutiny. While the division is supposed to be part of the municipal court, the city has marketed the division to the business community in Pulaski County, according to the lawsuit. Sherwood lists the division as a “department” on its website, and calls the court’s work a “service” for merchants ― one that issues “over 35,000 warrants annually” on charges in connection with bad checks. The court collected nearly $ 12 million in five years.

The new lawsuit describes a “lucrative” system in Sherwood that only barely resembles an actual court or independent judicial process. Bailiffs tell defendants that the court is closed, not allowing family and friends inside, and defendants are forced to sign a “waiver of counsel” form to enter the courtroom, meaning they forfeit their right to an attorney.

The suit claims that the Sherwood Police Department acts as an “extension” of the court’s “collections scheme,” arresting hundreds of people on “failure to pay” or “failure to appear” charges and helping the district court contribute nearly 12 percent of the city’s budget. Each overdrawn check, no matter how small, can bring in $ 400 in fines and fees, plus restitution for the amount of the check. 

“This is a broken court system that disregards due process rights at every turn,” Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, said in an interview, adding that the court pays “no attention” to due process rights.

“People are doomed for failure when they appear before the court, and most significantly trapped in this never-ending cycle of expanding debt,” she said. “With the resurgence of debtors’ prisons, we will continue to see people cycle in and our of jails and prisons across our country merely because of their inability to pay fines and fees tied to low-level, nonviolent offenses.”

Clarke said the Sherwood court, in particular, is “notorious” in the region.

“The facts were even worse than we thought,” she said.

Because of opposition to tax increases, the lawsuit states, “municipalities have turned to creating a system of debtors’ prisons to fuel the demand for increased public revenue from the pockets of their poorest and most vulnerable citizens.”

Robertson ultimately spent more than a month behind bars, cutting down on his time by doing manual labor for the jail. While his cancer is in remission, the lawsuit alleges that he did not receive medication for pancreatitis and high blood pressure during his time in jail. He was released on Aug. 15. (Shortly after Robertson’s departure, a 34-year-old man who was in Pulaski County Jail for criminal mischief and public intoxication hanged himself, an indication of potential problems in the facility. Experts agree that jail suicides are largely preventable, as The Huffington Post reported last month.)

Between the time of his charges and his latest jailing, Robertson had been sentenced to a stretch in jail over outstanding fines. Sherwood police officers came to his door, demanding money and threatening arrest. A private probation company, ProTrac, also charged Robertson $ 35 per month on top of the payments to the court, burying him further in debt.   

He’s not alone. Nikki Petree, 40, was charged for bouncing a single check for $ 28.93, according to the lawsuit. She has been arrested in connection with that charge on at least seven occasions, and been jailed for more than 25 days. She’s paid at least $ 640 to the city.



Asked whether the term “scam” should be used to describe the practices of Sherwood’s municipal court, Clarke said it “feels too small a term to attach to what’s happening.” 

The Obama administration has called attention to excessive fines and fees, and the Justice Department recently told a federal appeals court that bail practices that don’t account for indigence are unconstitutional. But many civil rights advocates would like the federal government to get more aggressive by prosecuting judges who clearly violate constitutional rights when they lock up poor individuals without looking into their financial capabilities.

“We do hope that the Justice Department will use its bully pulpit to speak out against debtors’ prisons and the criminalization of poverty and take more enforcement action to help bring an end to these broken court systems across the country,” Clarke said.

Judge Hale did not respond to a request for comment.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You are the one who determines whether you receive.


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

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

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

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

Here are three simple steps to open up to receive:

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

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

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

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

Receiving is an act of service.

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

Losing My Grandfather To Alzheimer’s

When I was a kid, my grandfather used to sip tea at the kitchen table before starting the day. I made sure to sit across from him and watch the steam rise from his mug. It was a routine I looked forward to each weekend, and I wouldn’t have traded it for the world back then ― which, if you had asked me at the time, was a Sega Genesis and an entire large pizza. 

Saturday mornings were a ritual. The sun would rest at a certain angle in the sky, and its light hugged the furniture in the living room behind us. The shadows stretched across the hardwood floor, and like every morning, a glare would bounce off the grandfather clock that leaned against the far wall. You didn’t have to read its hands to tell what time it was, which was good, because my grandfather’s eyes weren’t too sharp. We just knew from the glare that we still had an entire day left to share together. 

Separated by an entire generation, my partner in crime had always been this pugnacious Italian man with hair slicked back like he had just walked off the set of “Jersey Boys.”

This was before his memory started to fade. 

Last summer, the most important man in my life was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Separated by an entire generation, my partner in crime had always been this pugnacious Italian man with hair slicked back like he had just walked off the set of “Jersey Boys.” At 5 feet 6 inches, he was never a man of stature. But that son-of-a-bitch always made sure you knew he was in the room, and he sure as hell never took shit from anyone.  

Our breakfasts were always the same: a handful of shortbread cookies and enough sugar in my tea to put an army of diabetics into shock. He wore a gold chain around his neck, and his t-shirts were always frayed at the sleeves. Faded tattoos peppered his arms, all of them damaged by decades of sun exposure soaking into his wrinkled skin. 

On some mornings we’d have chores to do, so we’d take our breakfast on the road. I loved it ― I rode shotgun in his beat-up Ford and counted cars with Bob Seager in the cassette deck. At lunch, we’d kill time in a smokey basement of a pet shop with men eight times my age, their skin like wrinkled paper, who would trade homing pigeons and spit on the ground. I was just another one of the boys. 

“Always aim for the nose,” he’d say so matter-of-factly, with his fist balled up in front of his face and his right hand cocked beside his ear. Terrible advice, when I was old enough to realize it. But it was his duty to coach me when the teasing at school became too much. Later, I’d practice my right hook in the mirror. That man, the fighter that I always knew, is falling into obscurity. 

Every weekend started in that kitchen. So many memories we created just by sitting at that table. Now, as he struggles to remember the name of the street he’s lived on for four decades, I know it’s my job to cherish them for both of us.

Now, as he struggles to remember the name of the street he’s lived on for four decades, I know it’s my job to cherish [the memories] for both of us.

I know I’ll follow him to the end, if only to stand at the threshold where lucidity blurs with the murky, winding path of dementia. I can wave goodbye as he walks deeper into its grasp, hoping to God that my presence somehow makes his transition into the night a little easier. At some point, my fixed smile, too far off in the distance for him to see, will know when it’s safe to let myself cry. 

What matters to me most is my last impression in his dimming world: my crowded, goofy grin there to see him off. I will savor that moment and give us one more laugh to share ― even if I have to force it, even if it isn’t the same anymore. I want our story to end on our terms.

I can wave goodbye as he walks deeper into its grasp, hoping to God that my presence somehow makes his transition into the night a little easier.

Down the hall from the kitchen, I still press my ear to the door of his bedroom, like I’ve done so many times as a child, and feel the hollowness of the wood that separates us.

The grandfather clock chimes behind me with its glare beaming back, and I know that he is gone.

This post is part of Common Grief, a Healthy Living editorial initiative. Grief is an inevitable part of life, but that doesn’t make navigating it any easier. The deep sorrow that accompanies the death of a loved one, the end of a marriage or even moving far away from home, is real. But while grief is universal, we all grieve differently.

Live An Extreme Life

Live An Extreme Life


Growing up in small-town Wisconsin, Bob Brenner fed his addictions to food and football, becoming the biggest guy in his family of six siblings and on the defensive lines of winning team after winning team. Bob’s size was an asset that he wanted to continue growing. Football carried Bob to the status of hometown hero on a college football team that he eventually coached. However, his education was all about pursuing his lifelong dream of being a police officer. Going into the dark underground of drug trafficking, Bob’s size was an asset once again. He used it to thwart gun and knife-wielding murderers and took them down. But the life was taking Bob down, too. His addictions to alcohol and food were out of control, leaving Bob in a morbidly obese 448 lb. body that couldn’t even fit into his bulletproof vest. His marriage was falling victim to the double life. His finances were a wreck as Bob kept up an image worthy of a narcotics heavy hitter. His faith was nonexistent and he wouldn’t be around long enough to clean up any of it. Life on the edge pushed Bob’s weight and his well-being over it. The adrenaline-infused tales of Bob’s youth and his portentous career as a narcotics officer ultimately gave way to the spiritual journey and commitment to changing his physical appearance and l8ifestyle that transformed Bob into a man on the edge of Commitment, Love, Integrity, and Faith… life at the edge of the C.L.I.F. Bob Brenner’s weight loss journey aired nationally during Season 3 of ABC’s Extreme Weight Loss on September 3, 2013 and was picked up for a second viewing later in 2013. He was the most-viewed, most-talked-about cast member of any year and he lost a record 56% of his weight.

Justin Timberlake And Jessica Biel Took Over A Photobooth With Hillary Clinton

Somewhere, Donald Trump and his tiny hands are very, very jealous. 

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel hosted a fundraising luncheon for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, and it looks like everyone had a ball. The event, which was held at the TimberBiel’s Los Angeles home, also included a photobooth. 

Let’s just say HRC and her loyal subjects made the most of it: 

Look who came over for lunch… #imwithher

A photo posted by Jessica Biel (@jessicabiel) on

According to Variety, Leonardo DiCaprio was originally supposed to throw the swanky affair, but had to back out because of a project. Biel and Timberlake stepped up to hold the party, where guests attended for a measly $ 33,400 per person. 

Clinton reportedly also blessed Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Aniston, Shonda Rhimes and Tobey Maguire with her presence at the luncheon. We’ll be waiting on their photobooth pics to see if they top the ones above.

Bali High

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

COACHING QUESTIONS

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

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

How $80 Can Save A Life

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

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

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

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

Who should not have a CACS?

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

What about risks of the CACS? 

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

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

Why do a CACS?

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

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

Turkey Ponders New Directions After July Coup, Should The U.S. Be Concerned?

2016-08-21-1471796198-923513-image1.jpeg

Given campaign rhetoric about NATO’s being obsolete and the inability of Muslims to govern free of religious dogma, the significance of last month’s failed coup in Turkey is being overlooked at a time when it ought to be front and center, particularly as Americans contemplate their own role in an increasingly unstable Middle East.

Supporters of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan argue the United States had a hand in this bungled coup. Others claim the founder of the Gülen movement, a self-exiled Turkish cleric named Fethullah Gülen — who ironically resides in Pennsylvania — was behind it all. To confound matters, Gülen is (some claim) involved with a string of charter schools, including in Houston and Waco, Texas that encourage the teaching of science and math rather than religious ideology. The conflicting claims and charges about all this have left security analysts scratching their heads.

To those who claim the United States had a hand in the coup, the question is this: What possible motive could the United States have for manipulating the coup? The Turkish situation is far different from, say, what took place in Iran in 1953 when both the CIA and Britain’s famed MI6 orchestrated the coup that ousted Mohammad Mossadegh. At the time Iran was seen as hostile to the United States and a threat to our strategic interests in the region.

It’s unlikely Turkey will follow the Iranian model and spark an Islamic revolution such as that of 1979. Erdogan is no Khomeini. And Turkey doesn’t fit the profile.

Whatever else, Turkey on paper remains an ally of the United States, despite its no longer necessarily sharing Washington’s particular interests and vision. And it’s still a NATO member. So the argument the United States would seek to destabilize a country pivotal to American interests including broad regional defense must falter on the altar of stone-cold reason.

And while it offers some plausibility, the argument about Gülen’s backing the coup lacks evidence. Even so, the Turkish government has requested the United States extradite him to Ankara to face justice — a contentious political issue in already tense U.S.-Turkish relations.

Despite its failure, the coup could have major ramifications. The concern among Western capitals is: What sort of foreign policy will Erdogan pursue now that he appears to wield even more power after his crackdown on remaining opposition, including the arrests of some 16,000 people? Washington has already expressed displeasure with Erdogan’s authoritarian tendencies. To the chagrin of the United States, Turkey’s increasingly combative nature could hinder regional efforts to crush ISIS.

The failed coup also paves the way for closer ties between Moscow and Ankara. This comes as analysts gauge vulnerabilities of the U.S. nuclear arsenal at Incirlik air base in Turkey.

In a world where tests of secular Muslim leadership too often seem to fail, what’s unfolding in Turkey is discouraging. Chaos and lack of trust are becoming the order of the day. This could extend to massive surveillance programs under the dubious pretext of preventing further coup attempts. That means democracy is faltering, freedom of the press will cease to exist and Turkey, the one secular Muslim power we admired from afar, could become another example of short-circuited governance. This could confirm my theory that there will never be real democracy in the Muslim world — and that the West needs to stop fantasizing about this unrealistic idea. And that means no more futile nation-building exercises in the Middle East.

Where does Turkey go from here? Who knows? What’s certain, however, is that the Turkish government has no desire to take steps that bolster democratic principles. This means the United States needs to evaluate this relationship and decide how to proceed, because Turkey no longer conforms to what’s expected of a U.S. ally. Turkey is convinced it no longer needs to pursue a foreign policy that meets Washington’s expectations. Instead, it is pursuing a path that will allow it to play a more influential role in the region, one playing on Muslim passions in more extreme parts, even as it seeks to entice Russia into its toxic orbit.

What No One Told Me About Following My Passion

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Unique Approach To Discomfort

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Carmelo Anthony Preaches Unity Following Gold Medal Victory

Carmelo Anthony started to tear up as he reflected on his Olympic career on Sunday. The U.S. men’s basketball team had just beaten Serbia, 96-66, to win Anthony his third gold medal, an unmatched achievement in men’s Olympic basketball, and the weight of the moment started to overwhelm him. 

“I know this is the end,” Anthony said. “This is it for me.” 

There had been vast interest in how Anthony would responds to winning gold after he authored a July op-ed in the The Guardian in which he said he hoped to use the Olympic stage to make a statement following the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. “This is a chance to do something meaningful before an audience of billions,” he wrote at the time, leading many to wonder aloud what he might do.

But on Sunday, Anthony’s message was one of unity. 

“Despite everything that is going right now in our country, we’ve got to be united,” he said. “America will be great again, I believe that. We got a lot of work to do, but it’s one step at a time.”

After Anthony’s comment, the U.S. men’s basketball team approached the podium with their arms interlocked, a clear extension of Anthony’s call for unity. 

Anthony has become one of the most politically outspoken American athletes in recent years. In July, the same day Anthony published his Guardian op-ed, the New York Knicks star stood alongside NBA superstars LeBron James, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade at the 2016 ESPY Awards, who, together, asked for the country to take a committed stance against gun violence and unnecessary force on the part of police officers.  

“The problems are not new. The violence is not new. And the racial divide definitely is not new,” Anthony said. “But the urgency to create change is at an all-time high.”

Olympians John Carlos and Tommie Smith, whose decision to raise their fists at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics remains one of the most iconic moments in Olympics history, have supported Anthony in his recent activism. “He is direct, very direct. And there is truth in [being] direct because there is purpose,” Carlos has said. 

Questions will remain about whether the International Olympic Committee’s rules scared the team away from a more overtly political statement. The IOC explicitly states in its Olympic Charter that political statements of any sort are not allowed at the games and may result in disqualification. Soon after Carlos and Smith raised their fists, the International Olympic Committee booted the pair from the games and Team USA suspended them. 

I know about that rule,” Anthony told The Undefeated before the Rio Olympics. “We had a rule talk about the do’s and the don’ts. What you can do and what you can’t do. I know the basics of what I want to do and what I don’t want to do.”

These Underwater Yoga Photos Prove The Practice Is Truly Magical

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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