Defining the American Masses: The Common Man or Third-Graders Without a Chaperone?

“You’ve reached group-sales for the Metropolitan Museum of Art. How may I help you?”

“Hi there! Our third-graders are touring Manhattan and we thought we could bring them by tomorrow.”

“Certainly.”

“That’s great. This chaperoning is wearing us down so thought we’d drop them off in the morning, catch a show and a few beers and pick them up around 5 or so, if that’s okay”

“Umm….Well, we need to have the kids chaperoned…because, you know, there’s a lot of priceless items…”

“Thanks so much. We’ll be by at 10!”

“Now, the doors open in just a minute…but just small children with sticky fingers, please!”

There aren’t too many teachers or directors of any respected institution that would permit this scenario. After all, it’s hard to take a selfie of you and Van Gogh if there’s some kid drawing horns sticking out of the straw hat. But lately, we’re okay with our other famously innovative institution being taken over by the kids — namely our country.

Perhaps if the negligent parents above were lucky enough to get tickets to Hamilton they might stumble inadvertently into the middle of the same argument at the heart of the American Experiment since its inception — is John Q. Public really to be trusted.

Alexander Hamilton didn’t think so. The blockbuster musical that is re-introducing our founding fathers is based upon Ron Chernow’s extremely read-able biography of the man who not only created the nation’s financial system but also, among a hundred or so other things, served as George Washington’s wartime ghost-writer/bad cop and created the Coast Guard to enforce tariffs that would help pay the bills.

Hamilton’s early years in a slave-port allowed him to witness firsthand what unchecked human behavior can do — all in the name of profit. If morals are set to the side, people are capable of unbelievably atrocious things. He debated vigorously with slave-owner Thomas Jefferson who grew up wealthy and never had to deal directly with his beloved man.

In essence, it came down to one question? Who would you prefer living next door–a stable family with smart parents or a frat house?

Millionaire Charles Foster Kane and his “Precious Underpriviliged”

In Citizen Kane, Charles also raised wealthy, is at a loss to understand why his election failed after headlines linked him to an extramarital affair — a blackmail attempt from his rival to force Kane to withdraw his candidacy. Hubris be-damned, Kane went through with the election and ruined his marriage and his closest friendship with his childhood pal Jed, who calls him on his hypocrisy.

Long as I can remember, you talked about giving the people their right – -as if you could make them a present of liberty, as a reward for services rendered…you used to write an awful lot about the working man. He’s turning into something called organized labor. You’re not going to like that one little bit when you find out your working man expects something as his right, not your gift. Charlie, when your precious under privileged really get together, oh-boy, that’s going to add up to something bigger than your privilege and I don’t know what you’ll do — sail away to a desert island somewhere, and lord it over the monkeys.

For Charlie Kane, the masses need to be carefully chaperoned by a wise father. But as Jed points out, those children may not really want or trust their father. Henry Ford and Walt Disney both experienced similar shock and feelings of betrayal when their lucky workers actually wanted a union.

Donald Trump hopes to “Take America Back” but back from whom and back to where is rather foggy.

Perhaps 50 years from now, this election may be looked upon as historically significant as anything that the Federalists debated. After all, the three remaining candidates are all something we’ve never had before this far along the primary season — a woman, a Jew and a rich TV celebrity who has never sought office.

Three often-heard quotes seem to sum them up.

  • On Hillary Clinton: “Okay, she’s smart and experienced, I just don’t really like her.”
  • On Bernie Sanders: “I’ll give him one thing, he’s never changed in thirty years. But come on, it could never work.”
  • On Donald Trump: “At least he speaks his mind.”

Of course, getting back to our museum tour, it’s likely that many of those third graders also speak their mind but I’m not sure you’d trust them to give the tour, let alone conduct everyone safely outside in case of an emergency.

Perhaps it’s my years in the classroom, but I’ve always shied away from candidates who would probably be unable to substitute for me on a sick-day. We’ve all had those subs when we were kids–the ones that let the classroom turn into an episode of Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom. As much as a Democrat as I’ve always been, I never thought that Mondale, Dukakis, Gore or Kerry would have survived in my class–but I know that Bill Clinton and Barack Obama would have been so good I’d probably get a call that afternoon from my principal suggesting I stay home as long as I’d like.

Hamilton argued against Washington stepping down after two terms — he predicted accurately that the United States was probably, in his short lifetime, not going to get a better father-figure since the Declaration — not for at least four score and seven years, anyway.

There is a growing snowball of articles comparing the personality and chameleon-like background of Donald Trump to Benito Mussolini (see March Salon article), a former socialist who, after his expulsion from that party and experience in WWI, founded fascism and, in 1922, became Italy’s youngest prime minister. His engaging speaking, creation of scapegoats and general encouragement of bullying tied with his secret police turned his elected office into a dictatorship in five years through legal as well as violent means, inspiring a similar path to Adolf Hitler in 1932. Over 100 million perished in six years of war primarily due the rest of the world letting three bullies go unchecked.

The old question goes, How do you stop a bully on the playground? And the old answer–stand up to him.

2016-05-29-1464550966-391421-Petoskey.png

The executive editor of the northern Michigan Petoskey News Review, Jeremy McBain hopes that someone will stand up to the bully, writing on May 26th:

This man is an embarrassment to the United States of America and I can’t believe the Republican party, a party that has plenty of other qualified and dignified potential candidates it could place before the voters, decided to go with this lying, racist, misogynistic, fascist-flirting bully that uses grade-school name-calling and conspiracy theories as his platform. This “man” is certainly not what presidential material looks like. (link)

Hamilton was accused of advocating a new royalty, just after the colonies had removed the old king. But his clause was that they should only govern as long as their morals were in order.

So, can the masses be trusted? How do you define the masses? Will they show up to vote? Will they be organized? Will they be fist-fighting just outside the polls?

It’s an interesting question right now, as polls show a national wave of disgust and disinterest in this election and its extreme candidates, how many people might instead opt for four more years of Barack Obama, given the alternatives–because for many even if the third graders have a chaperon, he might be carrying a blowtorch into the museum.

8 Habits of Incredibly Interesting People

2016-05-27-1464379845-8628678-8HabitsofIncrediblyInterestingPeopleHP.jpg

Interesting people have a special magnetism. They tell incredible stories and lead unusual lives. But what exactly makes them so captivating?

They’re curious more than anything else. An interesting person is always excited to explore the world, and this energy radiates outward.

Some people are naturally interesting, but there are also ways to learn to be more engaging. Dr. Clair Nixon is known throughout Texas A&M as an incredibly interesting accounting professor (an oxymoron if there ever was one). Accounting is a difficult subject to make interesting and fun, which is what makes Dr. Nixon so special. He’s so good at making things interesting that he doesn’t just teach accounting, he also gives lectures on how to be more interesting.

Indeed, anyone can learn to become more interesting, which is a wonderful thing, because being interesting can help you strengthen your network, win more clients, and lead more effectively.

There are several habits that many interesting people have in common. Sometimes these habits form naturally, but they are more often than not the result of conscious effort. Here’s what interesting people do to make themselves engaging, unusual, and hypnotizing.

1. They are passionate. Jane Goodall, a bona fide interesting person, left her home in England and moved to Tanzania at age 26 to begin studying chimpanzees. It became her life’s work, and Goodall has devoted herself fully to her cause while inspiring many others to do the same. Interesting people don’t just have interests; they have passions, and they devote themselves completely to them.

2. They try new things. Interesting people do what interests them. They know what they want, and they’re brave enough to take the steps to get there. This often means trying new things–things at which they’re often terrible at first. The very act of seeking new experiences also happens to be great for your mood, and people who are happy are magnetic and far more interesting to be around than downers.

3. They don’t hide their quirks. Interesting people often have unusual preferences that don’t fit the norm. They’re open and unabashed about who they are, which gives everyone a good look at these interesting tendencies. Billionaire Warren Buffett, for example, has never been suited to the high-rolling lifestyle. Instead, he still lives in the same modest house he bought in 1958 for $ 31,500. It might seem quirky–or even strange–for such an incredibly wealthy man to live so frugally, but Buffett doesn’t sacrifice his preferences because of what’s expected of him.

4. They avoid the bandwagon. Nothing is more boring than following the bandwagon, and interesting people are intent on forging their own paths. There’s often nothing wrong with what everyone else is doing; it’s just that interesting people are innovators, who break conformity to pursue new, exciting, and yes, interesting ideas.

5. They check their egos at the door. An egomaniac is never interesting. Egomaniacs are always posturing, always worrying about how they’ll come across. It’s exhausting, and it’s also dishonest. Take Oprah Winfrey–an interesting and interested person. In a speech to the Stanford University graduating class of 2008, she said, “The trick is to learn to check your ego at the door and start checking your gut instead. Every right decision I’ve made–every right decision I’ve ever made–has come from my gut. And every wrong decision I’ve ever made was a result of me not listening to the greater voice of myself.” Oprah’s advice is so important: listen to your values, goals, and ambitions, rather than worrying about what will make you look good.

6. They’re always learning. To interesting people, the world has infinite possibilities. This curiosity about the unknown leads to constant learning, fueled by an ever-burning desire to discover the unknown. Despite his intelligence and accomplishments, Albert Einstein kept a sense of wonder throughout his life that made him continue to ask questions about the world. Like Einstein, interesting people are in a constant state of wonder.

7. They share what they discover. The only thing interesting people enjoy as much as learning is sharing their discoveries with others. While some will spin engaging yarns about their exciting travels, there’s more to it than that. Interesting people are interesting because they feel out their conversational partner to see what sparks that person’s interest. They don’t share to expose all of the interesting things they’ve done; they share for other people to enjoy.

8. They don’t worry about what others think of them. Nothing is more uninteresting than someone who holds their true self back because they’re afraid that other people might not like it. Instead, interesting people are true to themselves wherever they are, whoever they’re with, and in whatever they’re doing. Interesting people are authentic to a fault. The famous English author Charles Dickens personified this. No matter where he was working–in a friend’s house or in a hotel–he would bring specific pens and objects and arrange them precisely. While his behavior may have seemed strange, he was always true to himself.

Bringing It All Together

It might not always be easy to incorporate these habits into daily life, but that’s what makes the people who do so interesting–they go against the grain, and that’s undeniably interesting. While I know that you’re already interesting, never forget to keep exploring the world and staying true to yourself.

What other qualities make people interesting? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

The Swoosh, Then and Now

Nike was founded by upstart running geeks and has evolved into a $ 30 billion sporting conglomerate. But running, and a runner, are upfront once again.
2016-05-27-1464363508-3711150-FlyKnit.jpg

Flyknit, a $ 1 billion franchise, on display in New York City.

In March, I was among hundreds of journalists from around the world who attended a Nike running summit in New York City called Innovation for EveryBody. I’ve been to lots of press events over the years, but this was on another level: an arena-sized setting, pulsing lights and music, SRO crowd replete with celebrities like Kevin Hart and track star Allyson Felix.

Then there was the array of products the company unveiled: a self-lacing shoe designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield; a preview of the VaporMax, the next generation of NikeAir technology; and the Zoom Superfly Flyknit track spikes designed for Felix’s distinctive biomechanics (she’ll wear them in the Olympics this summer). There were also new soccer cleats, basketball shoes, lines of performance apparel, and upgrades to the Nike+ app. The idea behind it all, said Nike CEO Mark Parker, is to “serve athletes at every step of their athletic lives” and to “bridge the gap between elites and regular athletes.” The overall vibe was that of a moonshot that, well, swooshed.

At the time, I had just started reading a new book by Phil Knight, who cofounded Nike in 1964 with Bill Bowerman, his former track coach at the University of Oregon. Shoe Dog is a terrific read, in large part because it paints such a vivid contrast between the $ 30 billion juggernaut Nike is today and what it started out as: an upstart shoe importer kept afloat by diehard running geeks selling product out of the trunks of their cars. There are several larger-than-life characters in the Nike origin story, none bigger than Steve Prefontaine, who ran at U of O a few years after Knight did. Our excerpt from Shoe Dog explains how that stubborn, gifted frontrunner became one of Nike’s first celebrity endorsers as well as its North Star. The way Pre ran the 5,000-meter final at the 1972 Olympic Trials on his home track in Eugene, and the way the crowd reacted to his epic effort, inspired Knight. “I knew that race…would forever be part of me, and I vowed it would also be part of Nike,” Knight writes. “In our coming battles…we’d be like Pre. We’d compete as if our lives depended on it.”

This win-at-all-costs ethic may explain why Nike’s rise to dominance–it commands 40 percent of the $ 52 billion global athletic footwear market; Adidas is second with 18 percent–has been inspiring and polarizing. There have been controversial labor practices overseas; criticism of the 23-year, $ 460 million sponsorship of USA Track & Field that gives Nike ownership of Team USA uniforms; and allegations of doping at the Nike Oregon Project, run by Alberto Salazar (who has denied the allegations). There has also been a perceived lack of focus on core running at the company over the years, which may account for why Brooks, not Nike, is currently number one at specialty running stores in the U.S.

However you feel about the company, there’s no denying its formative impact on running, both the elite sport and the everyday fitness activity. “If you have a body, you are an athlete.” That’s an empowering motto, and the ambition of the company’s latest products support it.

Recently I’ve been testing Nike’s new LunarEpic. With a seamless ankle-length Flyknit upper and laser-cut midsole and outsole, it’s one of the most innovative shoes I’ve ever worn. In New York, I asked Parker what Bowerman, who famously assembled the first nubby-soled running shoe by pouring liquid rubber into a waffle iron, would have thought of it. Parker laughed and said, “Bill was a minimalist–the less shoe, the better. As far as competition goes, he was absolutely right. But we didn’t show everything today. The Olympics will be quite special, and what you’ll see in Rio would make him incredibly proud.” Wait, there’s more? I asked him to elaborate, but he cagily declined.

Parker, who ran competitively at Penn State and used to do several marathons a year, deserves credit for Nike’s renewed focus on its original mission. “We are a big company that’s in many categories,” he said. “But running is our heart.” He joined Nike as a shoe designer in 1979, and he believes that the most lasting and inspiring way into every athlete’s heart starts from the ground up.

Somewhere, Pre is smiling.

Bernie Sanders Says Two DNC Committee Co-Chairs Are Biased Against Him

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Friday continued his attack on the Democratic National Committee, asking that the co-chairs of two committees be booted from their posts because they were partial to Hillary Clinton

Sanders’ campaign requested that Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy and former Rep. Barney Frank (Mass.) be removed from their respective positions on the Platform Committee and the Rules Committee. Both have endorsed Clinton. 

“Both Governor Malloy and Mr. Frank (the “Chairs”) have been harsh, vocal critics of Senator Sanders, and equally active supporters of his challenger, Hillary Clinton,” Brad Deutsch, a Sanders campaign lawyer, wrote to the DNC’s rules and bylaws committee in a letter obtained by Politico. “Governor Malloy and Mr. Frank have both been aggressive attack surrogates for the Clinton campaign. Their criticisms of Senator Sanders have gone beyond dispassionate ideological disagreement and have exposed a deeper professional, political and personal hostility toward the Senator and his Campaign.”

“The Chairs therefore cannot be relied upon to perform their Convention duties fairly and capably while laboring under such deeply held bias,” the letter says.

Jim Roosevelt and Lorraine Miller, co-chairs of the DNC’s rules and bylaws committee, responded with their own letter Saturday saying that because there was no allegation of rule-breaking they were “compelled to dismiss” the challenge.

Sanders’ campaign accused Frank of “defaming” the senator in a March interview with Slate in which the former congressman accused Sanders of being “outrageously McCarthyite” by suggesting that Clinton had a conflict of interest when it came to regulating Wall Street.

“Yes, I saw one commercial that said the big companies weren’t punished. Why? Well, maybe it’s because Hillary is getting speaking fees. So the secretary of state should have been indicting people?” Frank told Slate. “I mean, yes, McCarthyite in the sense that it’s guilt by association. He complains about what she did with regards to all this money stuff. Where’s the beef of that?”

Sanders also pointed to interviews in which Malloy criticized his position on guns and linked him to Trump as evidence that the Connecticut governor could treat him fairly.

But Frank dismissed the idea he would treat Sanders unfairly in an interview with Politico.

“I hope it is not to lay the basis for an inaccurate claim that he was unfairly denied the nomination and I do see some elements of this,” he said. “”We really had two nomination contests this year. Bernie Sanders is the nominee of the caucuses; Hillary Clinton is the nominee of the primaries, which are more Democratic.”

“Gov. Malloy is committed to a platform and a process that is reflective of the diversity of viewpoints throughout the Democratic Party,” Leigh Appleby, a spokesman for the Connecticut Democratic party told the Hartford Courant. “This year’s Democratic platform process is making an unprecedented effort to ensure the process is reflective of the entire party,” she said.

The request comes after the DNC, Sanders and Clinton reached an agreement earlier this week to each appoint members to the platform committee. It was a concession to Sanders, since the committee’s 15 members, responsible for setting the party’s goals and principles, are usually all picked by the DNC head. The agreement allows Sanders to select five members of the committee, Clinton six and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz four. Sanders’ picks to the committee include Cornel West and Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) 

Last weekend, Sanders said Wasserman Schultz would not continue as DNC chair if he were elected president and endorsed a primary challenger in her re-election bid to her Florida House seat.

10 Things You Do That Make You Less Likeable

2016-05-27-1464379413-4255884-httpswww.linkedin.compulsesillythingsyoudomakelesslikeabledrtravisbradberryHP.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. In reality, being likeable is under your control, and it’s a matter of emotional intelligence (EQ).

In a study conducted at UCLA, subjects rated over 500 descriptions of people based on their perceived significance to likeability. The top-rated descriptors had nothing to do with being gregarious, intelligent, or attractive (innate characteristics). Instead, the top descriptors were sincerity, transparency, and capable of understanding (another person).

These adjectives, and others like them, describe people who are skilled in the social side of emotional intelligence. 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.

Likeability is so powerful that it can completely alter your performance. A University of Massachusetts study found that managers were willing to accept an auditor’s argument with no supporting evidence if he or she was likeable, and Jack Zenger found that just 1 in 2000 unlikeable leaders are considered effective.

I did some digging to uncover the key behaviors that hold people back when it comes to likeability. Make certain these behaviors don’t catch you by surprise.

1. Humble-bragging. We all know those people who like to brag about themselves behind the mask of self-deprecation. For example, the gal who makes fun of herself for being a nerd when she really wants to draw attention to the fact that she’s smart or the guy who makes fun of himself for having a strict diet when he really wants you to know how healthy and fit he is. While many people think that self-deprecation masks their bragging, everyone sees right through it. This makes the bragging all the more frustrating, because it isn’t just bragging; it’s also an attempt to deceive.

2. Being too serious. 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 for their work with their 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 focus on having meaningful interactions with their coworkers, remembering what people said to them yesterday or last week, which shows people that they are just as important to them as their work is.

3. Not asking enough questions. The biggest mistake people make in conversation is being 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 but that you also care about what they’re saying. You’ll be surprised how much respect and appreciation you gain just by asking questions.

4. Emotional hijackings. My company provides 360° feedback assessments, and we come across far too many instances of people throwing things, screaming, making people cry, and other telltale signs of an emotional hijacking. An emotional hijacking demonstrates low emotional intelligence. As soon as you show that level of instability, people will question whether or not you’re trustworthy and capable of keeping it together when it counts.

Exploding at anyone, regardless of how much they might “deserve it,” turns a huge amount of negative attention your way. You’ll be labeled as unstable, unapproachable, and intimidating. Controlling your emotions keeps you in the driver’s seat. When you’re able to control your emotions around someone who wrongs you, they end up looking bad instead of you.

4. Whipping out your phone.
Nothing turns someone off to you like a mid-conversation text message or even a quick glance at your phone. When you commit to a conversation, focus all of your energy on the conversation. You’ll find that conversations are more enjoyable and effective when you immerse yourself in them.

5. Name-dropping. It’s great to know important and interesting people, but using every conversation as an opportunity to name-drop is pretentious and silly. Just like humble-bragging, people see right through it. Instead of making you look interesting, it makes people feel as though you’re insecure and overly concerned with having them like you. It also cheapens what you have to offer. When you connect everything you know with who you know (instead of what you know or what you think), conversations lose their color.

People are averse to those who are desperate for attention. Simply being friendly and considerate is all you need to win people over. When you speak in a friendly, confident, and concise manner, people are much more attentive and persuadable than if you try to show them that you’re important. People catch on to your attitude quickly and are more attracted to the right attitude than who you know.

6. Gossiping. People make themselves look terrible when they get carried away with gossiping. Wallowing in talk of other people’s misdeeds or misfortunes may end up hurting their feelings if the gossip ever finds its way to them, but gossiping is guaranteed to make you look negative and spiteful every time.

7. Having a closed mind. If you want to be likeable, you must be open-minded, which makes you approachable and interesting to others. No one wants to have a conversation with someone who has already formed an opinion and is unwilling 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 that you believe what they believe or condone their behavior; it simply means that you quit passing judgment long enough to truly understand what makes them tick.

8. Sharing too much, too early. While getting to know people requires a healthy amount of sharing, sharing too much about yourself right off the bat comes across wrong. Be careful to avoid sharing personal problems and confessions too quickly. Likeable people let the other person guide them as to when it’s the right time for them to open up. Over-sharing comes across as self-obsessed and insensitive to the balance of the conversation. Think of it this way: if you’re getting into the nitty gritty of your life without learning about the other person first, you’re sending the message that you see them as nothing more than a sounding board for your problems.

9. Sharing too much on social media. Studies have shown that people who over-share on social media do so because they crave acceptance, and the Pew Research Center has revealed that this over-sharing works against them by making people dislike them. Sharing on social media can be an important mode of expression, but it needs to be done thoughtfully and with some self-control. Letting everyone know what you ate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with how many times you walked your dog today will do much more harm than good when it comes to likeability.

Bringing It All Together

When you build your awareness of how your actions are received by other people, you pave the way to becoming more likeable.

What other things make people less likeable? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

Bad News — You Have Cancer

2016-05-23-1464020576-3027020-Kaitie_BK_Portrait_Askew_sm.png

A doctor once took a sample of my blood and came back to me with a long face. He said he was bringing bad news; he was very sorry, but I had cancer. Bad news? I couldn’t help laughing. When I looked at him, I saw that he was quite taken aback. Not everyone understands this kind of laughter. Later, it turned out that I didn’t have cancer, and that was good news too.

The truth is that until we love cancer, we can’t love life. It doesn’t matter what symbols we use–poverty, loneliness, loss–it’s the concepts of good and bad that we attach to them that make us suffer. I was sitting once with a friend who had a huge tumor, and the doctors had given her just a few weeks to live. As I was leaving her bedside, she said, “I love you,” and I said, “No, you don’t. You can’t love me until you love your tumor. Every concept that you put onto that tumor, you’ll eventually put onto me. The first time I don’t give you what you want, or threaten what you believe, you’ll put that concept onto me.” This might sound harsh, but my friend had asked me to always tell her the truth. The tears in her eyes were tears of gratitude, she said.

No one knows what’s good and what’s bad. No one knows what death is. Maybe it’s not a something; maybe it’s not even a nothing. It’s the pure unknown, and I love that. We imagine that death is a state of being or a state of nothingness, and we frighten ourselves with our own concepts. I’m a lover of what is: I love sickness and health, coming and going, life and death. I see life and death as equal. Reality is good; so death must be good, whatever it is, if it’s anything at all.

Until you experience death as a gift, your work’s not done. So if you’re afraid of it, that shows you what to question next. There’s nothing else to do; you’re either believing these childish stories, or you’re questioning them–there’s no other choice. What’s not okay about dying? You close your eyes every night, and you go to sleep. People look forward to it; some people actually prefer that part. And that’s as bad as it gets, except for your belief that says there’s something else. Before a thought, there’s no one, nothing–only peace that doesn’t even recognize itself as peace.

What I know about dying is that when there’s no escape, when you know that no one is coming to save you, there’s no fear. You just don’t bother. The worst thing that can happen on your deathbed is a belief. Nothing worse than that has ever happened. So if you are lying on your deathbed and the doctor says it’s all over for you and you believe him, all the confusion stops. You no longer have anything to lose. And in that peace, there is only you.

People who know there’s no hope are free; decisions are out of their hands. It has always been that way, but some people have to die bodily to find out. No wonder they smile on their deathbeds. Dying is everything they were looking for in life: they’ve given up the delusion of being in charge. When there’s no choice, there’s no fear. They begin to realize that nothing was ever born but a dream and nothing ever dies but a dream.

When you’re clear about death, you can be totally present with someone who’s dying, and no matter what kind of pain she appears to be experiencing, it doesn’t affect your happiness. You’re free to just love her, to hold her and care for her, because it’s your nature to do that. To come to that person in fear is to teach fear: she looks into your eyes and gets the message that she is in deep trouble. But if you come in peace, fearlessly, she looks into your eyes and sees that whatever is happening is good.

The EU’s Hard Choice: Climate Change or National Politics

Last year’s Paris Climate Agreement at COP21 marked a paradigm shift in the international response to climate change. Skeptics argue the targets aren’t ambitious enough, but few can deny that COP21, thanks in part to Europe’s leadership, achieved the first multilateral climate agreement since the Kyoto Protocol.

In April 2016, with Earth Day as a backdrop, 175 parties accounting for 94% of global emissions reconvened to sign the Paris Climate Agreement. But only 15 countries–mainly small island nations like Maldives, Fiji, Samoa, Palau and Tuvalu–formally ratified. They represent a minuscule 0.4% of global carbon emissions.

Ratification represents a serious hurdle to climate treaties. The Kyoto Protocol required more than seven years to come into force. For the Paris Agreement to come into effect, at least 55 countries representing at least 55% of global greenhouse gas emissions need to ratify.

However, the fate of the Paris Climate Agreement largely rests in the hands of the big four emitters–China, US, EU and Russia. According to the World Resource Institute’s Paris Agreement Tracker, in order to reach the 55% emissions thresholds, ratification by at least one of these four is essential. Without it, the Paris Agreement just doesn’t mathematically work.

Which of these four big emitters can we count on to ratify? In the COP21 afterglow, ratification felt like a sure thing, but now cracks are beginning to show. For the US, the hope is to ratify by not defining the Agreement as legally-binding, but this robs the accord of its potency. Regardless, a partisan Congress that’s already obstructing President Obama’s Supreme Court nomination will be an obstacle. And if Donald Trump–who now polls ahead of Hillary Clinton and has disavowed support for climate change–wins the presidency, it could mean the US tries to renegotiate the Paris Agreement for more favourable terms.

China, who accounts for 20% of global emissions and has already signalled its intent to ratify before COP22, would clearly raise expectations for an early start to the Paris Agreement. But it would also be out of character for China who hasn’t played a leadership role in climate negotiations and has tended to protect its economic interests over environmental concerns. Russia has never been a first mover on climate change issues.

That leaves the European Union. Given its climate change leadership and heavy investment into a low-carbon economy, the EU is a natural cornerstone of the Paris Agreement. There’s no lack in ambition from the EU either. A recent communications release highlights the European Commission’s urgency to ratify. Indeed, Maros Sefcovic, the European Commission Vice-President for Energy, has indicated the EU’s desire “to be in the first wave of ratifying countries.”

But can the EU still be part of the first wave? Because it represents 28 different member states in the emissions reduction plan submitted at COP21, the EU faces the enormous task of dividing the burden among states while trying to keep them unified. At the same time, economic and political circumstances are driving some EU states to pursue their own interests or defer to their own national approval process.

The EU’s balancing act has traditionally been an economic one. It’s had to weigh each state’s unique energy production mix against longer-term, EU-wide climate change ambitions. For example, where nuclear power accounts for 75% of energy in France, coal comprises nearly 85% of Polish power generation. Poland has typically backed domestic labour interests–the coal industry provides roughly 100,000 jobs–over EU climate policies, even vetoing the EU’s Low Carbon 2050 Roadmap and the Doha Amendment under its new president, Andrzej Duda.

But while there are solutions to economic problems, the political climate is now the bigger worry for the EU. In June, the UK votes on Brexit, a near-existential referendum that will determine its membership in the EU. Considering the UK accounts for 13% share of EU emissions and is set to hold the EU presidency next year, the electoral result carries significant implications. “Referendums like Brexit expose the EU to the risk of becoming the next Australia on climate change, who ended up doing a hard reverse on its climate commitments and carbon tax,” said Cary Krosinsky, Lecturer at Yale College.

Less obvious is how the EU reconciles its COP21 climate pledge with the domestic parliamentary decision-making process. France, for instance, advocates for expedited EU ratification with national-level discussions to follow, but Italy wants national parliamentary discussions before agreeing to support EU ratification. The Belgian legislative process, as Ian Duncan, MP to the Scottish Parliament, comments, requires an arduous approval process by seven independent national and regional parliaments. And many EU states have just begun developing their own national energy and climate plans. So, it’s reasonable to assume that some states hold off on EU ratification until they understand exactly what it means for them.

The EU needs to move quickly before ratification devolves into a conflict of national interests. According to Artur Runge-Metzger, climate change head for the European Commission, the Commission is even exploring ways to go around Poland if necessary. “As one member state is not ready, there is a discussion that we need to have at the political level in terms of how to take the whole element. In reality, I think that in the past we have seen pieces of legislation where not all member states did their own ratification.”

If these intra-EU issues weaken efforts to ratify the Paris Agreement, some states will proceed on their own but at the loss of a unified Europe. Of course, there will be early adopters. France was the first EU state to ratify on May 17, and others including the UK are adopting stronger national climate policies like carbon price floors to compensate for shortfalls at the EU level. But there will also be climate laggards who offsetting this progress.

If laggards like Poland do hamstring the process, the EU needs to consider forcing through ratification on a top-down basis so that it continues to push the climate change policy agenda forward. Critics insist this top-down approach widens the democratic deficit. But, with the EU focused on the refugee crisis and the economy, allowing national parliaments to delay or undermine ratification will jeopardize the EU’s role. It may even downgrade the EU to observer status at COP22 in November, depriving the summit of a negotiating leader and large-bloc signatory.

Of the four large emitters, the EU represents the best opportunity to support the 55 countries, 55% of global emissions milestone. If the EU is to preserve its influence and policy coherence, it needs to overcome its internal conflicts and remain the cornerstone of the Paris Climate Agreement.

Share Your Truth (More Human, Continued)

2016-05-27-1464374522-1099760-shareyourtruth.jpeg

When I was going through the most challenging times in my life, I wanted nothing more than to read something – anything – from someone who had been there before me and had come out the other side in one piece.

And then there were the times when I felt totally isolated; when what I was going through was so immensely private I dared not tell anybody out of embarrassment or shame or both. Surely someone has been through this before me, I would think to myself. I’m not the first. I’m not the only one.

In fact it was often in reading someone else’s story that I would summon the courage to tell mine. Like Beverly Johnson’s story about Bill Cosby in Vanity Fair. Because of it I faced my own truth of molestation at the hands of my baby sitter and hit “publish” before fear got the best of me. Letter to My 12-Year-Old Self (That Took Me Four Decades to Write). She inspired me and I believed and hoped that someone else might be inspired by my story too; or at least feel a little less alone.

“I think I fall in love with anyone who shows me their soul. This world is so guarded and fearful. I appreciate rawness so much.” ~ Emery Allen

This is why I write. This is why I started kindred. It’s what makes me feel human and vulnerable and honest. While I continue to find and write my anthologies of true stories there are plenty of amazing resources when you need to feel inspired or a little less alone. All of these organizations exist to make us feel more connected. To wake us up to feeling instead of merely scrolling. In short, to make us all feel more human.

Share your truth. You never know who else may need to hear it.

The Day I Reached an Orgasm While Training!

This may sound rather odd or weird to you, and I have no idea how or why it actually happened, but I swear to you folks that it really did happen!

There I was, in the middle of a 90 pound e-z curl bar biceps extension. The weight was really heavy, and I struggled fighting against gravity. I pulled with all of my might, screaming and grunting as the force of my bulging biceps competed against the Earth and her gravitational forces. My training partner at the time was pushing me hard, encouraging me to finish, “You got this Angel, do it! You got this bro, beastmode!”

As I finished that last repetition, then it happened. I’d felt a slight stirring in my loins earlier, but I didn’t think much of it and carried on. However, this one was quite powerful and I could not ignore it anymore. It felt just like I do before I am about to ejaculate during sexual relations, except that I was standing in the middle of a gym floor, and currently not engaged in anything near to sexual activity. In fact, I was in the middle of battling gravity as I performed an extremely heavy biceps curl. Beastmode!

OMG, I actually reached the point of climax right then and there. I felt that similar feeling of pleasure, followed by an actual, proper ejaculation! I finished the set, returned the weights to the rack, and said I had to go to the men’s room. I walked away, and had to check to ensure that what I thought happened, had actually occurred. Yup, it was verified; I had actually had an orgasm while training.

Recently, on my talk show site, Angelrtalk, I discussed how I first laughed hysterically, and was then moved to tears because of such intense cardio training and focus. However, I didn’t touch on reaching an orgasm while training. I’m not sure how often this happens to people, or how it came to be, but it really happened. So far, it only happened that one time, and never again. Does that mean I’m not training hard enough? Hah!

Does anyone out there have a similar story? Have any of you ever climaxed sexually during training? Am I the only one who this has happened to?

It’s Time To Change The Way We Think About Political Polling

As the general election season gets underway, the flood of polls is likely to keep coming in — which means the debate will rage on regarding which polls are credible, which methods are best and why.

When you take a closer look at the way various polls are conducted, there’s no one method that stands out as inarguably better than all the rest. Some people in the polling industry like to claim that polls done by live interviewers using randomly selected phone numbers are more accurate than surveys that use automated telephone technology or surveys conducted over the Internet. But research shows that’s not necessarily true.

Background

The polling field has struggled with changes in technology that have rendered random digit dial telephone interviewing — in other words, randomly calling phone numbers and asking people to take your poll — less reliable than it used to be. Random digit dialing was once considered the “gold standard” of polling methods, since it theoretically ensured you’d reach a cross-section of people that was representative of the whole population.

The gold standard is no more, however. Some of the issues complicating the phone-polling process these days include declining response rates, people’s growing reliance on mobile phones and Federal Communications Commission rules that ban automated calling technology in many cases.

Internet polling has emerged as an alternative. But there’s no way to randomly select people from the Internet, which means Web polls rely on “panels” of people who have been recruited and who signed up to take surveys online. People who volunteer to participate in polls aren’t necessarily representative of all Americans. That means the samples in these studies have to be carefully selected, weighted and adjusted to match the overall population and account for any possible bias. (Of course, the vast majority of telephone polls are also weighted to match the population.) And many people who volunteer to participate in Web surveys end up not following through on their commitment.

The research

For the recent American Association for Public Opinion Research conference, the HuffPost Pollster team did an analysis of how accurate the polls were in the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary elections in 2016, compared to those in 2012. (The comparison was restricted to the Republican races in Iowa and New Hampshire, since there was no Democratic primary in 2012.) Instead of looking at the accuracy of individual polls, we looked at the accuracy of the polling averages of different types of polls.

We looked at the three most common polling methods: live telephone, Internet and automated phone (also known as “interactive voice recording,” or IVR). Automated technology involves a recorded voice reading questions to the respondents, and respondents recording their answers by pressing buttons on their phones. Due to FCC regulations, these types of polls can’t include mobile phones. The automated category includes polls that were mostly automated but that used some Internet sampling to supplement their landline calls.

The various types of polling offered very different looks at the race. Live telephone polls in Iowa this year indicated that Donald Trump was up by nearly 7 points in the GOP contest. Automated polls, on the other hand, seemed to show that the race was tied. In the end, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) won the GOP’s Iowa caucus by 3 points.

In 2012, automated polling did well in Iowa and New Hampshire, predicting the outcomes of those contests slightly better than live telephone polls did. (There weren’t any Internet polls in those states that year.) But in 2016, live telephone polls did the best job of predicting the outcome in New Hampshire’s Republican primary. Internet polls underestimated Trump’s advantage in the Granite State, while automated polls overestimated the business mogul.

Another presentation at the conference looked at the accuracy of individual polls in presidential, gubernatorial and Senate races from 2008 to 2014. That analysis turned up similar results. Jennifer Dineen of the University of Connecticut and Andrew Smith and Zachary Azem of the University of New Hampshire found that not only did the accuracy of different types of polls vary by year, it also varied according to election type. In 2014, for example, online polls were the most accurate at predicting gubernatorial races, but live telephone polls were more accurate in predicting Senate races.

What it means

The conclusion seems to be that we can’t really predict which type of polling method will be most reliable in pre-election surveys. Random digit dialing, the onetime “gold standard,” doesn’t seem to be any more consistently accurate than other approaches.

One thing this research doesn’t get into is how, exactly, the various polls went about identifying likely voters — which could be an important point. Many pollsters don’t disclose the specifics of how they select likely voters, but thanks to a recent Pew reportwe know that kind of thing matters.

Maybe we should be focusing more on which polls are conceived and conducted with appropriate care and rigor, rather than which ones are done by phone and which online. Quality matters, as Nate Silver demonstrates in his own pollster ratings — which depend, in large part, on a pollster’s long-term accuracy. The more meticulous pollsters are the ones who rise to the top, regardless of how they collect the data.

The Secret to Being Happy Now

For far too many people ‘happiness’ is an ever-elusive future possibility.

With more money, love, success, adventure, ____(fill in the blank) we think we will have more joy and happiness in our lives, but I don’t believe that to be true.

What I now know, from many years of going against the grain of my own soul is that happiness is not only an inside job, but it requires a few key components…none of which you have to wait for.

You want to be truly happy? Follow these simple steps.

1. Speak your truth. Stop allowing others to stifle your essence as they tell you who to be and how to act. Lean into your natural flow of living, breathing, and being and give yourself permission to speak your truth. Know what you want out of life and go get it, unapologetically. Stop following the herd and doing all the things everyone else is doing because you think you’re supposed to. Find your truth and then live it, every.single.day.

2. Find your flow. I talk about this all the time with my clients and it’s SO important when it comes to being happy. Finding your flow is all about leaning into what works for you. Stepping into the path that might be a bit of a challenge is also exciting, invigorating, and inspires you. It’s about finding what you do naturally instead of following all the ‘traditional’ how-to guides. Oh and one more thing…stop judging yourself for NOT ‘fitting in’ with the status quo. You weren’t meant to fit…you were meant to find what works for you and do it beautifully, naturally, and organically.

3. Know what you want…then go get it. Sounds simple enough right? Unfortunately there are far too many people not willing to be honest with themselves about what it is they truly want out of life. Instead, they live a life that feels like a lie because it’s what they are ‘supposed’ to do according to society, their parents, or someone else. Life is short and there is no better time that right this moment to get crystal clear on what you want so you can create it. Speak it into reality. Know it. Own it. Live it. Love it. And while you are at it…love YOURSELF.

Without these 3 things, happiness will always feel just outside your reach. The reality is that only you have the power to make yourself happy. It’s time to stop playing victim to your circumstances and finally allow yourself to be free knowing that you deserve to think, feel, and experience happiness every single day.

Remember, your happiness begins and ends with you.

And I’ll tell you a little secret too. Once you allow yourself to feel the joy, happiness, and bliss now, all the money, opportunities, love, adventure, and anything else you desire will come with ease.

I want to hear from you! What’s your go-to method for being happy right now? Share in the comments, I’d love to know.

12-Year-Olds Form Supportive Bond While Battling Cancer Together

The bond between these kids is helping them through the toughest of times. 

Stella Usiak and Lucas Lowe, both 12, met during their battles with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The two, who are currently patients at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York, have been there for each other through their journeys and formed a special bond, WGRZ reported. 

“She’s had a crush on me for a while now, and I’ve had a crush on her, so her and me are boyfriend and girlfriend now,” Lucas told the outlet. 

The pair have small dates like eating lunch together or having quick chats. For Valentine’s Day, Lucas gave Stella a ring, and has even made a sweet video about how special Stella is to him. 

Stella’s mother, Jennifer Usiak, told The Huffington Post that the pair is elated to simply be around one another. Even emoji-filled texts from Lucas brighten Stella’s day. 

“It’s cute. If he sends a text and she’s not feeling good it puts a smile on her face,” Usiak said of Lucas’ impact on her daughter. “It’s like … they are an old couple who spent a lifetime together.”

According to WGRZ, the pair both went into remission at one point and relapsed later on. Both also received bone marrow transplants. Because of the couple’s experiences, the mom says it’s easy for them to relate to one another. 

Dr. Meghan Higman of the institute’s pediatric hematology and oncology program notes that it’s important for kids undergoing treatment for a life-threatening illness to have strong support systems like the one seen between the couple.  

“The relationship allows them to talk about and understand what’s happening and offer support to each other in ways that other kids can’t,” Higman told HuffPost. Later she added, “The only person who can truly understand what a kid with cancer is going through is another child with cancer.” 

Higman mentioned that by having a peer who’s going through a similar situation, a child is able to not only talk about treatment, but also discuss how the illness may affect other facets of life. The connection may also help improve mental health. 

“For kids who have to be in hospital or going back and forth to clinics for long periods of time, they miss out on going to school, school dances, on family events. … To have someone your own age who’s been through some of the things you’ve been through, it gives some normalcy,” she explained. “It helps decrease anxiety and helps them have someone else to … talk out their frustrations or concerns.”

Why is Sanders Trying To Crash Our Party?

Last Sunday, I drove back to my old ‘hood in the Flatbush/Midwood neighborhood of Brooklyn to show my son where I was born. It is the same neighborhood where Bernie Sanders and my mother were born and raised and attended James Madison High – which boasts quite a legendary roster of graduates, including Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Spielberg, Chuck Schumer, and noted Nobel laureates, too many to mention.

The neighborhood surrounding James Madison has always been deep blue Democratic. My mother was a precinct worker, poll watcher, and canvassed for Democrats up and down the ballot throughout World War II into the ’50s and early 60’s. She paid her dues as a proud Democrat.

I had my first taste of Democratic electioneering in 1960 handing out leaflets urging Brooklynites to vote for Jack Kennedy. I kept that Democratic tradition alive in my family, serving as a Democratic precinct chair, and elected to Central Committee of my local county Maryland Democratic Party. It was an article of faith that FDR saved the world, and that Harry Truman kept Europe from starving. Robert Kennedy was my ideological hero, as was his brother Ted. No better president than Bill Clinton, in my books.

I am a proud Democrat. I wish Bernie Sanders was. But Sanders chose a different path. To paraphrase Groucho Marx: Sanders refused to become a member of a party that would have him as a member. Unlike my mother who toiled proudly for the Democratic Party from the time Sanders entered James Madison in 1955, Sanders shunned it – and as a result he paid no dues as a member. In fact, from the time he settled in Vermont, Sanders never ran for office as a Democrat, never supported a Democratic ticket, never raised money for the local Democratic Party. And in virtually every electoral race Sanders competed in, he ran against the Democratic Party nominee – often causing the Democrat to be defeated as a result.

Because Sanders is an unabashed Socialist and not a true blue Democrat, he is a guest in my Party that accorded him the gift (and not the right) to run for president on our ticket — permitting him to borrow its historical brand, even as an insurgent.

I admire Sanders and share many of his progressive values. But the distinguished Vermont senator appears increasingly hell bent on wrecking the Democratic Party for his own less than lofty purposes. With each passing day and each new warning of disruption, he is devolving from a crusader into a grumpy old man — caring not that he is mirroring Donald Trump in issuing threats and ultimatums to the GOP leadership. Sort of like a guest in the house demanding the silverware and the china and the punch bowl!

Sanders has smelled the greasepaint and heard the roar of the crowd — and it has gone to his head.

I agree with Sanders that the entire primary process warrants a top to bottom reboot – although them the rules now. Watching him descend into gutter warfare against the leadership of the Democratic Party, threatening and obliquely condoning violence because of grievances – some real/many imagined is inappropriate and destructive. If he were a Democrat he would be excommunicated for such antics. I am reminded what “Uncle Joe” Stalin’s infamous adage justifying his bloody Soviet purges that one must break eggs to make an omelet. Sanders’ warnings have the malodorous waft of rotten eggs.

Putting aside the impossibility and impartibility of Sanders ever wrestling the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination – and I would bet my mortgage and my car on that — Sanders is treading dangerously close to the red line over which he will be intentionally damaging Mrs. Clinton so that she emerges mauled from a raucous convention. He can’t have it both ways – asserting he is merely demanding his due while playing into Trump’s stubby hands.

It would be a shame if Sanders’ legacy is one of a divider and not a uniter.

I cannot help but conclude Sanders is stealing a page from Trump – surreptitiously attempting a hostile takeover of the Democratic Party…even if Mrs. Clinton is defeated in the process. She falls, he gains – making a post-election play for the Party apparatus. A Sanders zero sum game? Maybe that is campaign manager Jeff Weaver’s Machiavellian mischief to avoid having to return to his day job selling comic books for a living.

No self-respecting Democrat should stand idly by and let these shenanigans go on. Democrats who have endorsed Mr. Sanders have a duty to bring him back onto the reservation. At what point does accommodation become appeasement?

Mr. Sanders has vowed to fight for the nomination all the way through the California primary. OK, but it won’t change the delegate math, and suggesting otherwise is duplicitous Voodoo. And because California won’t change the math he should take the high road and bow out of the process after the California primary, accompanied by a full throttled endorsement of Mrs. Clinton (on a loop that can be heard everywhere/everyday). Thereafter, he can then turn his powers of persuasion to supporting Mrs. Clinton, and to the issues he has transformed into a potential political movement – focusing on reforms that progressives and even moderate Democrats can embrace. There is nothing untoward galvanizing supporters – so long as he and we keep our eye on the real target – defeating Trump at any cost.

No one expects Sanders to embrace all of Mrs. Clinton’s ideas or programs; indeed he need not embrace the basic positions and policies which have been the pillars of the Democratic Party for decades – after all, HE IS NOT A DEMOCRAT. But what would a Trump presidency mean for the very youth of America who have embraced him?

Sanders is our 21st century version of the beloved Hubert Humphrey – the happy warrior championing the little guy/gal and the besieged middle class. It has been quite the rodeo ride and he has deservedly earned accolades for his candor and compassion and for the mantle of leadership he has earned from millions of well-meaning Americans. He has inspired me, too, no doubt about it.

But if Sanders is true to his word – that he really wants to defeat Mr. Trump as much as any self-respecting Democrat, then by golly, he needs to show a lot more deference to the Democratic Party and its presumptive nominee, Mrs. Clinton and cease all the rabble-rousing and acting like a sore loser.

Ralph Nader was no Democrat either. He helped to hand the presidency to George W. Bush in 2000 by running as a spoiler to Al Gore. God help us all if Senator Sanders so undermines Democratic Party unity so as to harm Mrs. Clinton’s electoral chances that he leaves that legacy as his primary footnote in history. A stellar career of public service championing progressive rights deservedly down the tubes.

What Are You Choosing

Aristotle wrote, “We are what we repeatedly do.

What are you doing repeatedly that is bringing you and others peace and happiness? What are you doing repeatedly that is causing you or others pain? These are very important questions. They have the potential to be life transforming if you are taking action on doing more of what creates the outcomes you desire.

Are you living a virtuous life? Virtues are defined as “behavioral habits – something that is exhibited fairly consistently. You exhibit virtues in the way you act daily, without much thinking.
What virtues are important to you? For me, in my book, Create Your Legacy, I share examples of Love, Generosity, Gratitude and Compassion because these are virtues that were taught to me by my parents and are still important to me today. I try to make a conscious effort to live my life by taking action on these virtues often.

For example, to live with love, I can simply take the hand of someone I love and say, “I love so many things about you. One thing I really love is the fact that you are honest with me; even when, it is not easy.”

Generosity was the domain of the rich or elite nobility for a long time. This definition has changed in the last 200 years to include everyone. The virtue of generosity involves giving unselfishly to help others without expecting anything in return, not even acknowledgement or appreciation.

We can offer a smile, teach what others need to know, lend a helping hand, encourage with our words, listen, give our time, send thank you notes, give a gift card, share coupons, and call and offer to sit with someone at a shelter, mission, hospice or a nursing home.

To live with generosity, I could put $ 5 dollars in my pocket and look for an opportunity to give it to someone in need or to buy a small token, such as a meal, for someone.

Cicero, in Ancient Roman times, believed that gratitude was the “parent of all the other virtues.” Gratitude is the feeling and attitude of appreciation for the benefits that we have received or expect to receive.

We can make it a practice to tell a spouse, partner, child, coworker or friend something we appreciate every day. To live with gratitude, I could buy a flower to give to someone who has been kind to me in the past month. I could express exactly what I am grateful for concerning that person. For example, I could say, “Thank you so much for telling me about that sale. I saved 70% off what I would usually pay for that item.”

Activating the virtue of compassion is what establishes it as the cornerstone of positive social interconnection and humanism. The reward, of treating ourselves and others with compassion is that we feel contented in our hearts knowing that we are helping humanity evolve to greater peace and harmony.

To live with compassion, I could be open to encountering someone in physical or emotional pain and asking, “What are you saying to yourself about the pain?” Then, I could encourage that person to release any negative thoughts surrounding the pain and let the person know that he/she is not alone in pain. That I too, have experienced great pain.

Aristotle wrote, “We are what we repeatedly do. Take a moment today and think about what you are repeatedly doing. Are you living a virtuous life? Are you repeatedly choosing for yourself or others peace, happiness or pain?

Bedtime Rituals: Training for Sleep

Who would have thought that we’d have to go into “training” for a good night’s sleep? But in the twenty-first century – when we are overwhelmed with electronics and subtle, incessant stressors – sleep is one of those necessities for which we have to go into training.

The cornerstone for getting consistent, restorative sleep is the bedtime ritual.

In the book The Power of Rest, Matthew Edlund, M.D. says this about the importance of having a sleep ritual:

“Because everything works better if much of your pre-sleep period becomes routine, rhythmic, and ritualized…If you have to describe it in a single word, a sleep ritual is conditioning. Without thinking you can peaceably and pleasantly go to sleep.”

You already have a bedtime ritual. Make sure it works for you.

For example:

If you come home with takeout, eat it in front of Netflix, have a couple of glasses of wine, take a shower, and go into bed wearing your workout clothes while checking your social media…that’s your bedtime ritual. And any sleep expert would tell you that it’s not going to work for you.

Parents of kids can get hooked into similar bedtime ritual snags. If you’re waiting in your child’s room after tuck-in time, or even sleeping there, that’s a bedtime ritual that won’t serve your child…and certainly doesn’t serve you.

Even just 15 minutes of intentional wind-down time following the guidelines below will set you up for a better night’s sleep.

Bedtime rituals are part of bedtime boundaries.

Bedtime rituals and sleep are so critical to a happy, healthy, and well-balanced life, you’ve got to set some bedtime boundaries. This piece on Psych Central by Margarita Tartakovsky, M.S. gives a run-down on the importance of personal boundaries.

Successful bedtime rituals 10 steps

Step 1: Set a wake up time

I know it seems counter-intuitive, but in order to assess the most effective bedtime ritual you have to know when to go to bed. Wake-up times will vary according to age and what your day looks like. If you’re parenting, there may be different wake-up times for each member of the family.

The National Sleep Foundation has an infographic of sleep requirements by age here .

Step 2: Set a “lights out” time

…and stick to it! This will be based on the information from the National Sleep Foundation.

Step 3: Your best bedtime ritual begins with the morning sun

Melatonin production is the secret to deep sleep. Its production can be inhibited, or encouraged. Exposing yourself to sunlight within 2 hours on awakening is “the cheapest and most widely available sleep aid” according to Dr. Robert Rosenberg of Answers for Sleep.
.
Step 5: Take a hot bath

Save that shower for your morning ritual. Studies show that when our core body temperature goes down we get sleepy. When you slip into a hot bath you first raise your body temperature but then it takes a sharp dive. How hot? Not so hot you’re uncomfortable, but hot enough to sweat. How long? Fifteen to twenty minutes is good, but some researchers have noted that just 2 or 3 minutes will have a positive effect on body temperature. Studies also indicate that the closer the hot bath is more effective the closer it is to your optimal “lights out” time.

Step 6: Get a “sleeping costume”

Bedtime rituals have power because they cue your subconscious that this is a special time. Sleeping in whatever workout clothes you happen to be wearing, taking that energy with you doesn’t support the transition to sleep. You can certainly wear anything comfy including a tee shirt. Just make sure it’s dedicated for sleeping.

Step 7: Electronics OUT of the bedroom

Just do it. This infographic from Rasmussen College sums it up well.
For families, Melitsa Avila of Play Activities has an outline of how your family can collaborate on a media plan for the program year here. And don’t forget a parking lot for the electronics.

Step 8: Reverse a morning ritual

Add a morning ritual that can be reversed when it’s time for sleep sends us powerful cues…and work. Particularly if they’re done with intention and mindfully. Some rituals you might try are:
• Make your bed, turn down the sheets
• Shades up for morning light, shades down for a darkened room
• Write a brief gratitude or intention list in the morning, revisit and add how the day went at night

Step 9: Breathing

A while back, the 4-7-8 breathing technique was heralded as the solution for sleep. It was “guaranteed” get you to fall asleep in a 6o seconds. The site Medical Daily has a how-to video here.

Breathing can just be part of your pre-sleep bedtime ritual. In fact stressing out about if you’re doing it right would be counterproductive. Personally, I’ve found that the whispered exhale technique from the late Carl Stough just as effective and a lot easier.

The premise is simple: You can’t inhale effectively without a complete exhale. By whispering on the exhale you’re not forcing air out. What you whisper – nonsense syllables, counting 1 through 10 – acts as a kind of biofeedback monitor for the length of the exhale. When you can’t whisper any more, you’re at the end of the exhale and the lungs are ready for the next part of the cycle. A deep inhalation naturally follows.

Step 10: Affirmations

There is no doubt that worrying about sleep will keep you awake. So replace any worries with more positive statements and questions such as:
• I sleep easily and deeply all night long.
• I cherish my bedtime ritual and the deep sleep that follows.
• Why do I fall asleep so easily every single night?
• I am grateful for the deep, restorative sleep I get every night.

Healthy daytime routines = healthy bedtime routines

Our twenty-first century culture is re-learning what generations before knew: sleep is not optional. Sleep is not negotiable. Sleep is essential.

And the culture of convenience has made sleep a little bit more elusive. Sleep isn’t a switch-on, switch off, kind of device. It has to be planned for. Some say, even courted. That’s why I created the Bedtime Blueprint which puts all the information you need to know about planning your days for sleep in one place. You can download it by filling out the form below.

As Clinton Catalyzes Democrats, GOP Support for Trump Remains Tepid

With less than six months before the 2016 presidential election, the presumptive nominees of both major parties are starting to shift their focus away from the primaries and toward the general election. As they do so, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and businessman Donald Trump both face an uphill battle in winning the support of independents, according to new data from Reputation Institute’s 2016 U.S. Presidential Election RepTrak® Study.

In May, the U.S. Presidential Election RepTrak® Study garnered 2,659 respondents from the U.S. general public, and found that while Clinton is gaining momentum among Democrats compared with Trump among Republicans, neither candidate has built a strong reputation among the independent voters who will likely determine the outcome of the election.

Unlike traditional polls that help identify which candidates voters support, the monthly Presidential RepTrak® survey uncovers why voters support or don’t support a particular candidate by measuring perceptions of the candidates’ platforms across seven reputational dimensions: economic growth, national security, education and innovation, global relations, health and wellness, social investment and executive leadership.

The RepTrak® Pulse score represents a candidate’s overall reputation. A score above 80 out of a possible 100 is considered “excellent,” though no candidate has achieved an excellent score since the Presidential RepTrak® began collecting data in March. “Strong” scores are between 70 and 79.9, “average” between 60 and 69.9, “weak” between 40 and 59.9 and “poor” between 0 and 39.9.

Both Clinton and Trump earned poor Pulse scores among independent voters, and they virtually tied on the executive leadership dimension, with Trump leading by just half a point. They split weak victories on the remaining six dimensions, with Clinton leading on education, global relations, health and social investment, and Trump leading on economic growth and national security.

In order to woo independents nationally, Clinton needs to persuade independents of her ability to drive economic growth and strengthen national security. For Trump, it’s the opposite — he needs to display a sense of caring on social issues to enhance his reputation.

While neither candidate is on strong footing among independents, Clinton is building momentum among Democrats nationally. For the first time since the beginning of the study in March, Clinton achieved a strong Pulse score of 70.8, up seven points since April, and earned strong scores on all seven rational dimensions. Sixty-nine percent of Democrats strongly agree that they would vote for Clinton.

Democratic voters perceive Clinton as being genuine, welcoming open discussion, delivering on her promises and delivering consistent experience. Members of her party view her as friendly, honest, concerned and charming, while at the same time being ambitious and reliable.

In contrast, Trump has a weak reputation among Republican voters, earning a Pulse score of 52.9, but moving up from his poor score of 48.9 in April. Though Trump’s overall score has increased thanks to average scores on economic growth, national security and executive leadership, he remains weak on education and innovation, global relations, health and wellness, and social investment. Fifty-nine percent of Republicans strongly agree that they would vote for him.

If there’s one major takeaway from the May Presidential Election RepTrak® data, it’s that both parties’ presumptive candidates have a lot of work to do to build stronger reputations among their own bases and the crucial independent bloc. Come Election Day, voters of all stripes want to cast a ballot for a candidate they think has the platform and leadership abilities to grow the economy, protect the nation and improve Americans’ lives.

6 Ways Reading Will Enrich and Enhance Your Life

Readers are leaders.

Readers expand their worlds, their minds, their perspectives.

Readers develop a deeper flexibility to handle life’s challenges.

But these days, with all the flitting video distraction of the Internet, it’s sometimes harder to sit for long and sink into a great book.

Do you need help convincing yourself, however, that it’s worth it?

Here are six ways you can use reading to enhance your life, make you more attractive and at the same time make people more interested in you.

1. Reading Refines Your Intelligence

Follow your curiosity. Unlike school assignments, the books you choose are those that pique your interest.

Perhaps you’re interested in psychology, poetry, body language, or biographies of great historical figures.

Whatever it is that interests you, you get to choose. For this reason alone, you’re far more likely to turn pages and open up dusty corners of your own mind.

And as you vary what interests you you’ll start gaining a wide wealth of knowledge – knowledge you can start peppering into conversations with friends and colleagues. Everybody likes to learn – especially when you’ve done the heavy lifting for them.

2. You’ll Discover Practical Life Insights

Here’s a happy surprise of reading widely…

Reading across different topics tends to cross-pollinate and overlap.

You’ll start making fascinating and original connections among seemingly unrelated topics.

From reading psychology, you might understand your financial decisions as well as your relationship choices.

From reading about body language or social dynamics, you might figure out why you haven’t gotten ahead or the secrets of people you know who “mysteriously” succeed.

From a dog training manual, you may insights on parenting (I’ m not kidding). And from reading about social habits of primates, you might learn why your relationship with your family or partner is working or not working.

3. You’ll Expand Your Vocabulary

A good vocabulary is one of the most reliable markers of financial success in the world, according to academic studies.

Reading books by thoughtful authors allows you to discover new words and new meanings – IF – you take the time to look up those words.

Here’s a special tip: look up the roots of each word because that will give you extra insight. For example, did you now that the word “sarcasm” literally means “flesh-tearing”? Now you know why sarcastic people can be so hurtful.

4. You’ll Improve Your Writing Skill

Writing with care and precision is one of the other great indicators of success in business and life.

Bad communicators rarely get their message across – and rarely get what they want. But when you study the words, sentence structure, rhythms and cadences of powerful writers, you can adapt their power to your own communications.

The best writers all begin by copying or “modeling” the writing of others.

Tip: copy out the best writing you find by hand – it goes straight to your brain and becomes more natural for you to imitate in your own writing.

5. Fiction and Biography Develops Empathy

Feel like increasing your emotional intelligence? Find that you get caught up on your own head and can’t really feel the pain and joys of others?

Reading fiction and biography can help with that.

Stepping inside the minds of other and getting their perspectives is helpful in understanding why others make decisions, who they choose to love, what makes someone commit, or break up a relationship.

Having this increase in empathy can help you out in your relationships with friends, family, and even help you get your ex back by giving you the ability to finally get out of your own thoughts and see things from their point of view for a change.

6. You Will Get Inspired Anew

If you’ve ever felt like the world is crumbling all around you, then reading tales of triumph and adventure, and how others, fictional or real, overcame diversity can give you the energy and courage to rise to life’s challenges.

It’s why we love heroic tales! We see ourselves in these heroes. More than that, we FEEL ourselves in these heroes as we are carried along by the storyteller’s skill. This way, it’s not a mere mental exercise, but an actual “experience” in our own minds and imaginations.

Tip: rather than “compare” yourself to a hero in a book, look for that one quality that helped them succeed and find it in yourself. Then make a commitment to cultivating that quality in your own unique way.

Got it?

Great.

So turn of the computer, put your cell phone in another room and crack open a good book. And be sure to inhale the pages deeply. Books tend to have a wonderful smell as well.

Observations From Below: Automan’s Utility Belt

2016-05-24-1464125718-2389008-batman.jpg

Batman has his utility belt, James Bond has Q, and Supercrips like me often rely on assistive technology. Assistive Technology is any item, equipment, or software program that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of persons with disabilities. I’m fortunate to have been born in 1990, around the time when personal computers started to propagate. I was introduced to computers in preschool when I was around 2. My teachers thought that typing out words would be an easier way for me to communicate. They brought alphabet stickers, and placed them on the keys so I could learn the keyboard layout. They also gave me a key guard to place over the keyboard that allowed me to only hit one key at a time. These aids helped, but it still didn’t increase my speed, as I am still very slow at typing.

My computer is equipped with several different programs to help me with simple tasks. The first one is my word prediction software called EZ Keys. One aspect of the program is that it predicts words as I spell them, so I don’t have to type the word completely out. It also remembers my most commonly used words, as well as words that typically phrase well together. One drawback is that it also remembers misspelled words, leaving me to have to correct them manually. Correcting all those mistakes sometimes offsets the time I saved by actually using EZ Keys in the first place. EZ Keys is far from obsolete, and I use it primarily for its other features. For example, it’s still used as an AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication)/Speech Device. It allows me to type in something I want to say, push enter, and a voice will say exactly what I just typed. The most famous user of this particular AAC is Stephen Hawking

In addition to typing, another task that assistive technology helps me with is reading. My cerebral palsy makes it difficult for my eyes to focus on written words, especially as I get tired. I tried wearing glasses for a short time, but they didn’t address the problem, so I stopped wearing them. Although I am literate and can read on my own if I have to, it just takes much longer without my aids. Therefore, I use a program on my computer to help me read more comprehensively. The program is called Kurzweil 3000, and can read passages that I highlight from other websites and word documents. Sort of the same way a book on tape functions, I can copy and paste the text into the generator, and listen to it that way. Kurzweil 3000 is also extremely helpful in that it allows me to take notes and make outlines when I create blogs, papers or lectures.

Ever since the advent of the tablet, I’ve come to embrace a couple of the more popular ones on the market. I really enjoy my Kindle, especially its text-to-speech feature and vast library. Being that it is difficult for me to hold a book or to turn a page, the layout of my Kindle is perfect. I’m all for using the best technology that you can get, so I’m starting to use my iPad when having to write an email. It turns out that my iPad is a lot more intuitive with predicting words and phrases than my EZ Keys has ever been. The iPad’s iTunes Store has a whole section that has chosen to highlight accessibility apps, providing assistance to people with all different types of disabilities.

A fascinating device that I used throughout college and still utilize today, is called a smartpen, designed by Livescribe. This pen can record full class seminars and interviews by pressing a button located on its specially designed pad. The pen is equipped with a tiny camera, and its memory will notate the specific time during a recording session to coordinate with the exact time you wrote your notes onto the pad. After you’re done recording, you can listen to specific parts of the speech instead of the entire thing, and you’re able to sync everything you’ve recorded to save as a file onto your computer.

The one prominent piece of assistive technology that I use on a regular basis, would be my wheelchair. I have been using a wheelchair basically all of my life, making it second nature as an extension to every aspect of my daily routines. I am in my wheelchair from the time I wake up, to the time I go to bed. I also have a van that’s been disability adapted with an automatic ramp and restraints to hold my wheelchair in place during trips. This specialized van allows me to travel. I’d prefer a self-driving car, but those are still in development.

Not all of the assistive technology aids I use are state of the art. There are numerous low-tech gadgets I use every day that are beneficial to accomplish the smallest of tasks. I don’t have the motor skills to open packages, so I use scissors to do so. I know of people who aren’t able to close their hands all the way, so they use certain types of restraints, such as Velcro, to fixate silverware or a writing utensil to their hand. Another low-tech innovation that I use daily, is the ramp that allows me access to my front yard. There’s no computer module or power switch for it, but without my basic ramp, I would be forced to perform the daunting and risky adventure of rolling my wheelchair down the steps.

I’m happy to see that the big technology companies like Apple and Google embrace people with disabilities as an important and viable market. Google has recently donated $ 20 million to 29 different non-profit organizations to assist in making the lives of the world’s almost 1 billion people with disabilities more accessible. Now it’s time for the rest of society to catch up.

That’s how I roll…

Supreme Court Bars GOP Congressmen From Defending Racially Gerrymandered Map

In a short opinion that hints at compromise, the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to allow Republican lawmakers to defend a Virginia districting map that had earlier been ruled racially discriminatory.

At issue was the state’s 3rd Congressional District, which a lower court had determined was drawn unconstitutionally because it packed too many black voters into one district and thereby diluted black voting power overall. The 3rd District seat is held by Rep. Bobby Scott (D), currently the state’s only African-American in Congress.

Virginia, which is now led by a Democratic governor, never appealed the lower court ruling. But three Republican congressmen did, arguing that the now-overturned redistricting plan should be reinstated because the redrawn map would harm their re-election prospects.

The new map was approved earlier this year by the same lower court that had found the original plan constituted an illegal racial gerrymander.

In a unanimous ruling written by Justice Stephen Breyer, the Supreme Court said the three lawmakers — Reps. Randy Forbes, Rob Wittman and Dave Brat — had failed to establish “standing” to intervene in the dispute because they couldn’t show they had suffered any injury.

Forbes, who currently represents District 4, has chosen to switch over to District 2, which offers him a better chance of re-election. When the state redrew District 3, it shifted more black voters into District 4. Forbes had earlier claimed that change would turn District 4 into a “safe 60% Democratic district” if the Supreme Court didn’t intervene.

But since Forbes isn’t running in District 4 now, Breyer wrote that he couldn’t “see how any injury that Forbes might have suffered ‘is likely to be redressed by a favorable judicial decision.'”

As for Wittman and Bratt, who represent Virginia’s 1st and 7th congressional districts, the justices simply found no evidence that their legislative turf would be “flooded with Democratic voters” in a way that would lead to losses in November — especially since the case centered on districts far removed from theirs.

The practical result of Monday’s ruling is that the new congressional map will remain in effect heading into the 2016 election.

The minimalist ruling is also the third this term in an area, voting rights, where the Supreme Court has often clashed along ideological lines. The previous two were handed down in April, and all three have lacked major fireworks — perhaps to avoid even splits or the appearance of partisanship in the wake of Justice Antonin Scalia’s death.

‘What Can I Do/Learn in My 20s to Get Ahead?’

2016-05-23-1464030348-36054-coffeecuptattoos.jpg

Do these two things:

1) Write down what’s important to you.

This will help to get you ahead because NOBODY ELSE WILL FUCKING DO IT! It pisses me off. Seriously. Of the few people I know who have done it, they’ve all realised why they aren’t where they want to be in life. One lady, after I’d told her to do it, actually said to me “oh my god, I totally know why I’m not happy!” Who doesn’t want that kind of knowledge? Who would be insane enough to turn down this kind of knowledge? Fuck. I don’t get it.

Just kidding. I do get it. I refused to do this for a while because I didn’t want to find out who I really was, because what if I was that person, and still failed? Still wasn’t happy? Still fucked things up?

Turns out I had nothing to worry about. Because when I wrote down everything that was important to me, and when I put it in order of importance to me, I had this thought:

“That’s me.”

And then I had another:

“Hh man… I can do all the things I want to do…”

It wasn’t a “can” in terms of capability. It was a “can” in terms of allowing myself.

And yet… people will still refuse to do this.

What will you do?

2) Live by what’s important to you.

If you know what’s important to you, and you refuse to live by what’s important to you, it’s going to hurt.

It’s going to hurt because you can’t use ignorance as an excuse. You can’t pretend. You can’t hide.

I claimed to know who I was, and I’d say things like “I’m being me”… and yet I was in a job I hated and was doing nothing about it.

I was taking little actions here and there… but not really. I wasn’t taking actions I knew I should take.

Also, I know “hate” is a strong word. But some days I felt like my heart was falling apart. And that felt like hate.

When I started living by what was important to me, when I accepted that it was ok for me to live by what’s important to me, that’s when I started to make things happen.

It’s when I started to write.

It’s when I realised how much I loved writing.

It’s when I realised that I’d found something I wanted to master.

It’s when I realised I wanted to write for a living.

It’s when I left that 9-5 job forever to actually write for a living.

It’s when I became who I’d been holding back from being.

That’s how you get ahead.

It’s Not Up to You to ‘Figure It All Out’

It always seems that when a chapter of my life is soon coming to a close that it’s easy and natural for me to get caught up in the whole thinking of: What am I going to do next in my life?

It happened when I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree. It happened when I chose to not renew my teaching contract while I was living in Korea. And it has started happening again recently upon knowing that, in less than a year, I’ll have my Master’s degree.

The thought patterns have often gone something like this:

Where I am going to live?

If I want to move, where should I potentially move to?

What kind of work could I find there?

Should I do X or Y kind of work?

If I do X kind of work, will the salary be enough to pay bills?

What if I need a new car?

Etc. etc. etc.

The questions could go on and on forever.

While finishing a chapter in our lives can be very exciting — the end of a degree program, a job, or a relationship — it can also bring up a lot of stuff.

When a chapter of our lives ends, we then find ourselves at a crossroad.
So I turn right or left? So I take A or B? Or, should I not choose any of those and turn around and go right back where I was?

We now find ourselves in un-charted territory. It’s new. It’s unfamiliar. We haven’t been through it before nor do we know where this new journey might take us.

And, due to the unfamiliarly, it can be pretty darn anxiety-provoking. We fear that something will go wrong and we won’t be able to make ends meet. We worry that we may take the job and then absolutely hate it — or the career path entirely flops for us.

As a result of this fear that, somehow, everything is going to go completely wrong, we decide that, maybe, we can just plan everything.

So we create to-do lists. We set goals. We create our vision boards for a dreams for the future and we make our 10-year plan.

But you know what happens then? And I can vouch that this has happened to me every single time that I have tried to set any kind of long-term goal.

Life happens. And the goals completely change.

Why? Because it’s not up to me. It’s up to a power so much greater than me.

When we’re caught up in fear and worry, we start to over-analyze everything, and we try to plan and control everything in our lives, then that’s the voice of our ego, our monkey mind, our fear-based mind.

Our ego mind is limited. It makes us see the world and the universe with lack and it believes that we are not supported. And it drains our energy, our life-force, our power. According to A Course in Miracles, the presence of fear is a sign that you are relying in your own strength.

So when we are in fear, worry, and stress because we’re pushing ourselves to figure out what we need to do next in our lives, all it does it create more stress, more worry, and more fear.

In the grand scheme of things, it makes us unhappy. It keeps us in a place of suffering because it keeps us completely disconnected from our inner guidance and our true selves. It makes us believe that we are not supported and that we only have ourselves to rely on to “figure it all out”.

But you know what? You don’t have to figure it all out. In fact, you’re one and only job is to let it all go. Release the fear. Release the worry. Release the anxiety. Then give those fears to a power greater than you — in whatever way you like to call it, whether that be Source, the Universe, the Divine, God or whatever. Give it to a power greater than you and trust and know that you are supported.

Click to Tweet: When you are fearful, give it to a power greater than you and trust and know that you are supported. @jenilyn8705

Then once you do that, be still. Quiet the mind. Breathe. Meditate. Allow the beauty of the present moment to wash over you. Feel your body sitting. Feel the air around you. Hear the sounds around you in this moment.

Notice your inner mind chatter. Observe it, but don’t attach to it. Recognize it as fear and only fear, as the thoughts are not of your higher self, but wounded parts of yourself. Love them and let them pass.

Continue to breathe.

And then slowly and gradually, the mind chatter will subside. It may not completely go away, but it will become quieter. In the stillness of the moment, trust that guidance for your next right action is coming. It may come in the form of a thought, a feeling, a sensation, or maybe even through something in your external world, like through a friend, family member, co-worker, e-mail, magazine or whatever.

Regardless, be open and receptive. Exhale and remember: It’s not up to you to figure it all out.

Would Republicans Support This Woman?

2016-05-15-1463344643-9431384-Trumpasblackwoman.jpg

Here is what we all should be asking Republicans who are, albeit in many cases with trepidation, climbing aboard the Donald Trump yacht: Tell me, how quickly would you support a Democrat . . . let’s say a Democratic woman–oh, and let’s say she’s an African American–who, in no particular order:

■ had been married three times and bragged about her numerous extramarital affairs while simultaneously attacking her male opponent because his wife had cheated on him

■ had no policy or plans whatsoever, but just said she would cure everything–“I’ll bring back all the jobs,” “I’ll build a wall and Mexico will pay for it,” “I’ll eliminate ISIS,” “I’ll erase a $ 19 trillion national debt in eight years while drastically cutting taxes” . . .

■ when asked “How?” she would accomplish any of these goals, she just says “Trust me!” and “Believe me!”

■ changes her positions on almost everything from one day to the next

■ conducts her campaign as a mixture of grade-school name-calling and junior high “mean girl” bullying

■ rates men on the basis of their looks and physical attributes, says she will only “date” men who are “10s,” and that a man without large muscles cannot be more than a “4”

■ routinely calls men himbos and other degrading terms

■ says she might default on the good faith and credit of the United States and pay creditors only 50 percent of what is owed to them

■ says she had it so hard getting started that she had to take a million dollar loan from her mother

■ brags about what a great businesswoman she is, but took four companies into bankruptcy

■ says her own country is in terrible shape economically and militarily, even though its economy and military are in fact by far the best in the world

■ praised Vladimir Putin as a strong man and hired as top advisers people who worked for Putin

■ promised repeatedly over many years that she would release her tax returns if she ran for office, but now refuses to do so

■ said it’s disgusting that men urinate

■ bragged in a televised debate about the size of her breasts

■ poses as a great Christian but knows virtually nothing about the religion

■ favors many other nations getting nuclear weapons

■ refuses to rule out using nuclear weapons in Europe, the Middle East, or anywhere else

■ says we should abandon NATO

■ brags that she is “really rich,” “really smart,” knows lots of words . . .

■ consistently uses vulgar language in public appearances

■ cited as her foreign policy experience that she had run a beauty pageant in Russia

■ said she had never before heard anyone say she had small hands when in fact she had been complaining for decades about a magazine that had made that accusation against her

■ was featured in Playboy

■ insisted that a white president was born outside the United States and rejected all the clear evidence that the charge was not true

■ said that that white president was ineligible to hold office

■ had a longtime maid who says the current president should be shot or hanged

■ said she would like to date her own son because he’s so hot

■ was pro-choice before she was anti-choice and favored arresting women who had abortions before she was against it (the same day)

■ gets her information from the “most reliable sources”: Twitter posts and other internet gossip

■ accused an opponent’s father of being involved in the JFK assassination on the basis of a doctored photo in the National Enquirer

■ used to pretend to be her publicity agent and call reporters to tell them how great she is, how many top actors and singers want to date her, that she’s currently going out with three men while engaged to another man

■ now denies that she made those calls, even though she had sworn years ago that she had done it

■ and so on and on and on

Would you, our dear Republican friends, not conclude immediately that this candidate is a narcissistic blowhard who would be likely, if she became president, to do the exact opposite of “make America great again”? Can you honestly say that you would not classify her as the most dangerous and incompetent person ever to be nominated for president by a major American party?

How, then, can you even consider supporting for the presidency of the United States–THE PRESIDENCY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA–a Republican white man who says and does all these things?

How To Make Friends With Stress

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Is Better Sleep Really The Answer?

We are so busy with our work and lifestyle that we sometimes neglect the most important foundation of good health – sleep. I had a great interview with Shawn Stevenson about his new book “Sleep Smarter: 21 Essential Strategies to Sleep Your Way to a Better Body, Better Health, and Bigger Success.” As a peak performance coach, I understand the importance of sleep, yet the science and research he shares in his book blew me away.

Stevenson is a best-selling author and the creator of The Model Health Show podcast. He graduated from the University of Missouri, St. Louis and studied Business, Biology and Kinesiology. He is also the founder of Advanced Integrative Health Alliance, which provides wellness services worldwide. The book speaks about the importance of sleep and how it affects your life, health and success.

Stevenson explains that people are aware that health is important, however, due to the pressure of every day living – we tend to sacrifice our health. How ironic to think that you’ve compromised your health in order to achieve success and later on, you will sacrifice and spend all of your finances, as well as time with your family, trying to get your health back on track.

The fact is, he claims, WE CAN HAVE IT ALL!

According to Stevenson, we just have to start focusing on our health first because that is the ultimate thing that you need in order to be a better version of you. Be a little bit more selfish in a good way. What I mean by this is that you need to take care of your body when you are experiencing pain. When you ignore those principles, you will experience pain. Pain is our body’s way of saying something is wrong. We now live in a society where we go for band-aid solutions, not because we don’t want to deal with pain, but because of the urgency life is throwing at us.

If you are a busy professional, how do you calm down and focus? Start listening to your body again and embark on working in instead of working out.

Sleep Smarter

When it comes to performance, sleep is a huge component and Stevenson unveils excellent research to back it up. Based on a study conducted by the University of Chicago, a good amount of sleep helps you lose weight. A study of two groups was conducted to see what the effects of sleep were on weight loss. One group was placed under a strict calorie-counting diet and 8 hours of sleep. The other group were placed under the same diet but with less hours of sleep at around 6.5 hours. At the end of the study, they found out that the group of people who had an adequate amount of sleep lost 50% of their body fat!

Sleeping smarter does not only make you look good, but it can also help you think better. When you are sleep deprived, there is a 6% decline of glucose reaching your brain and a 14% reduction in your prefrontal cortex (this is the part of your brain that makes decisions – the more evolved human brain). When you lack sleep, there is a higher chance of you not being able to make the right decisions or think clearly.

Sleep Rituals

Humans are always looking for patterns. We develop a sleep ritual by the time that we wake up in the morning. According to Stevenson, we are able to reset our sleep rhythm with a couple of tricks:

  • Tabata exercise

  • Getting sunlight will help you sleep better in the evening as it increases your cortisol. As the day goes by, your cortisol decreases.

Finally, here are some key tips to help you wind down and get yourself ready to sleep:

  • Set a screen curfew. It is best to not use your tech devices a few hours before you sleep. Exposure to tech devices at night can suppress the melatonin up to 3 hours. Make your bedroom a place on for S and S (sleep and sex). Couples who have a television in their bedroom have 50% less sex. When women are able to get good amount of sleep, the following day they are 14% likely to be engaged in sexual activity.

  • If it is inevitable and you need to work, use an app that can help decrease the emission of blue light from your desktop/laptop/devices

  • Use blue-blocking glasses

6 Ways Nice People Can Master Conflict

2016-04-16-1460820691-7236967-6WaysNicePeopleCanMasterConflictHP.jpg

When you’re a nice person, conflict can be a real challenge. Not that mean people are any better at conflict; they just enjoy it more.

New research from Columbia University shows that how you handle conflict can make or break your career. The researchers measured something scientifically that many of us have seen firsthand–people who are too aggressive in conflict situations harm their performance by upsetting and alienating their peers, while people who are too passive at handling conflict hinder their ability to reach their goals.

The secret to effective handling of conflict is assertiveness–that delicate place where you get your needs met without bullying the other person into submission. Assertive people strike a careful balance between passivity and aggression (that is, they never lean too far in either direction).

2016-04-16-1460820770-9900702-6WaysNicePeopleCanMasterConflictHP2.jpg

How To Handle Conflict Assertively

It’s easy to think that nice people are too passive. While that’s often true, unchecked passivity can boil over into aggression. So there are plenty of very nice people out there who have exhibited both extremes of the assertiveness spectrum.

To be assertive, you need to learn to engage in healthy conflict. Healthy conflict directly and constructively addresses the issue at hand without ignoring or trivializing the needs of either party. The strategies that follow will get you there.

Consider the repercussions of silence. Sometimes it’s hard to muster the motivation to speak up when the likelihood is high that things will turn ugly. The fastest way to motivate yourself to act is to fully consider the costs of not speaking up–they’re typically far greater than not standing up for yourself. The trick is that you need to shift your attention away from the headache that will come with getting involved to all of the things you stand to gain from your assertiveness.

Say “and” instead of “but.”
The simple act of replacing the word “but” with “and” makes conflict much more constructive and collaborative. Say, for example, that your teammate John wants to use the majority of your budget on a marketing campaign, but you’re worried that doing so won’t leave enough money for a critical new hire. Instead of saying, “I see that you want to use the money for marketing, but I think we need to make a new hire,” say “I see that you want to use the money for marketing, and I think we need to make a new hire.” The difference is subtle, but the first sentence minimizes the value of his idea. The second sentence states the problem as you see it, without devaluing his idea, which then opens things up for discussion. Saying “and” makes the other party feel like you’re working with them, rather than against them.

Use hypotheticals. When you assert yourself, you don’t want it to look like you’re poking holes in their idea (even when you are). Hypotheticals are the perfect way to pull this off. Telling someone, for example, “Your new product idea won’t work because you overlooked how the sales team operates” comes across much more aggressively than suggesting the hypothetical, “How do you think our sales team will go about selling this new product?” When you see a flaw and present a hypothetical, you’re engaging with the original idea and giving the other party a chance to explain how it might work. This shows that you’re willing to hear the other person out.

Don’t speak in absolutes (“You Always” or “You Never.”) No one always or never does anything. People don’t see themselves as one-dimensional, so you shouldn’t attempt to define them as such. Using these phrases during conflict makes people defensive and closed off to your message. Instead, point out what the other person did that’s a problem for you. Stick to the facts. If the frequency of the behavior is an issue, you can always say, “It seems like you do this often.” or “You do this often enough for me to notice.”

Ask good questions until you get to the heart of the matter.
Failing to understand the motive behind someone’s behavior throws fuel on the fire of conflict, because it makes everything they do appear foolish and shortsighted. Instead of pointing out flaws, you should seek to understand where the other person is coming from. Try asking good questions, such as Why did you choose to do it that way? What do you mean by that? and Can you help me to understand this better? Even when you don’t see eye to eye, using questions to get to the underlying motive builds trust and understanding, both of which are conflict killers.

When you challenge, offer solutions. People don’t like it when they feel as if you’re attempting to take apart their idea right off the bat. When you challenge someone’s idea, but also offer a solution, you demonstrate that you want to work together to come up with a fix. This reinforces the value of their idea, even if it’s full of holes. For example, you might say “One potential problem that I see with your idea is ___. However, I think we can overcome this problem if we can just figure out a way to___.” In this example, you aren’t even providing the solution. You’re just acknowledging that you’re willing to work together to find one.

Bringing It All Together

Mastering conflict requires emotional intelligence. Emotionally intelligent people know how to craft their message in a conflict, whether they’re naturally assertive or not. They take other people’s feelings into account while still asserting themselves confidently.

How have you used assertiveness to your advantage? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

Need To Make A Healthy Change? Start With Self-Care Sprints

Day after day, you’re deluged with all manner of media pushing you to do this or that to achieve your holy grail of optimal health and well-being. Guzzle the green shake, hit the hot yoga, hold a five-minute plank or unplug for an hour. Despite repeated efforts to do what the guru de jour is advocating, you keep falling down on your behind, feeling defeated by what’s beginning to look like mission impossible.

Instead of an overhaul, why not start small, so that you’re not overwhelmed? I like to think of it as a daily self-care sprint. Rather than investing tons of time upfront, try out new healthy habits for five minutes at a time to see if they stick. That way, whether you’re time-starved, sleep-deprived or otherwise overburdened, you can get past excuses or fears and finally take that first step toward establishing a healthy lifestyle. Do what you want – and what you need.

Commit to performing just one daily sprint in each of three areas – improve your mind, eat well and strengthen your body – and work on each new habit until it sticks. Heck, that’s just 15 minutes a day at the very least. You can do this! 

To help get you started, I’ve created just a few guidelines:

  1. All devices and screens should be turned off unless required for the sprint.

  2. Do as many sprints as you wish throughout the day.

  3. Stepping it up: If you’re just beginning, limit any new habits to five-minute sprints. Once you get in the groove, you can expand any five-minute sprints that “stick” to 10 or 15 minutes and add more sprints. Finally, as you advance, you can continue to increase the amount of time you spend on a self-care sprint and the number of sprints you do.

To get started, here are some ideas of self-care sprints you might try. Of course, feel free to create your own lists that focus on areas you’d like to improve or address.

Improve Your Mind

  • Meditate or pray.

  • Write in a journal.

  • Take five deep, cleansing breaths.

  • Sit silently and be mindfully observant of everything around you.

  • Write a list of five things for which you’re grateful.

  • Write a list of five things that bring you joy.

  • Integrate at least one thing that brings you joy into each day.

  • Laugh out loud.

  • Play with a pet.

  • Read a book.

  • Listen to music.

  • Watch the sunrise or sunset.

  • Send texts, emails or handwrite a brief note of friendship, love or gratitude to a friend or loved one.

  • De-clutter a messy home or work area.

  • Write down five terrific things about your body, appearance or performance.

  • Make plans to go out with friends or family.

  • Soak in a tub.

  • To wind down before you go to sleep, spend five minutes laying in muted light reflecting on one positive highlight of your day.

Eat Well

  • Remove processed or refined foods from your kitchen.

  • De-clutter your kitchen and eating area.

  • Chop vegetables.

  • Make a smoothie.

  • Learn how to read a nutrition label.

  • Pack your lunch or snacks.

  • Create a lovely ambiance for eating – a place setting, music, table flowers, or whatever else you wish to include; it’s worth reiterating, the TV and all other devices and screens should be turned off.

  • Write your grocery list.

  • Identify three to five foods you might binge on and substitute in a tasty, healthy substitute for each.

  • Sign up for a food-tracking app or program.

  • Learn a new recipe.

  • Pull out the best china for tea or coffee, and savor.

  • Schedule a family or friends shared meal date.

  • Log your foods in a journal or on a tracker.

Strengthen Your Body

  • Get up and move your body for five minutes after 45 minutes of sitting.

  • Take a five-minute walk.

  • Walk stairs.

  • Walk hills.

  • Crank up the music and dance.

  • Jump rope.

  • Choose a wearable tracking device.

  • Do a combination of one or more exercises, such as bent-knee or total body push-ups, wall squats, standing on one leg until you can’t any longer, planks or bridges.

  • Strength train using one or more body parts, such as your back and biceps.

  • Do ab exercises.

  • Do yoga poses.

  • Do pilates.

  • Run in place, on a treadmill or outdoors.

  • Use any cardio equipment, such as an elliptical, a treadmill, a cycle or a rower.

  • Choose new exercise music.

  • Register for a charity walk, run or bike event.

  • De-clutter your workout clothes closet area.

  • Launder and organize your workout clothes.

  • Pack your gym bag.

  • Stretch.

Happy sprinting!

Lawmakers Will Try Again To Make Congress Care About Authorizing War

WASHINGTON — A frustrated group of House lawmakers is taking another crack at forcing Congress to debate a war it has already spent billions of dollars on — without ever actually voting to authorize it.

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) said Thursday that she and a handful of other members will try to add language to a must-pass defense authorization bill that would require Congress to pass a new Authorization for the Use of Military Force for the self-described Islamic State. That defense bill, the National Defense Authorization Act, is scheduled for a Rules Committee hearing on Monday. That’s where Lee and her colleagues plan to offer their amendments.

Lee’s amendment would repeal the 2001 AUMF — the never-expired, 9/11-era war authorization that the Obama administration is using as legal justification for bombing ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) will push an amendment that would cut off all funding for military operations against ISIS in Iraq and Syria unless Congress passes a new AUMF.

It’s not just Democrats demanding action. Rep. Scott Rigell (R-Va.) plans to offer an amendment that would attach a bipartisan AUMF bill to the NDAA. And Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) says he plans to send a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) urging him to allow a floor vote on a new AUMF. 

“I want to remind Mr. Ryan that he is denying members of Congress their constitutional duty, that we are sworn to uphold the Constitution, and one of those duties is to vote whether we send our young men and women to die or not,” Jones said.

Most members of Congress would prefer to ignore the AUMF issue altogether. War votes are tough, and President Barack Obama has already made the case that he doesn’t need congressional sign-off to go after ISIS. He maintains the 2001 AUMF gives him that authority because ISIS is an offshoot of al Qaeda, which was the target of that AUMF. But some have called BS, saying the 2001 authorization is being stretched beyond its limits, while others argue the war is flat-out illegal. Those voices have mostly been drowned out.

Ryan signaled in January that he was open to debating an AUMF on the floor and asked his deputy, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), to figure out a strategy. But nothing came of it.

A Ryan spokesman told The Huffington Post last week to ask McCarthy’s office for an update on what happened. A McCarthy spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.

The months-long silence on the issue is what spurred Thursday’s motley crew of lawmakers to hold a press conference. Anti-war progressives like Lee and McGovern stood alongside conservatives like Jones, Rigell and Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) to plead for action.

Even Obama isn’t particularly comfortable using a 15-year-old AUMF for a new war. He sent Congress a draft AUMF proposal in February 2015 to try to get the ball rolling on a new one. But Democrats said his proposal was too broad, Republicans said it was too restrictive, and they didn’t take the time to reach a compromise. Nothing has happened since.

In the meantime, the U.S. has spent more than $ 7 billion bombing Iraq and Syria since August 2014. More than 4,000 U.S. military personnel have been deployed. To some, it’s downright offensive that Congress won’t even debate the costs or duration of the war as people are overseas dying for the cause.

“Moral cowardice,” McGovern said.

“It’s easier for the Republican majority to let Obama have blood on his hands than to give us the opportunity we’re asking for to share the blood of our men and women in uniform,” Jones said. “Right now, the politics of this is why I don’t think we’ve had this debate. I’m not sure we’re going to have a debate.”

Last week, a U.S. Army captain filed a lawsuit against Obama over the legality of the war, charging the president with violating the 1973 War Powers Act because he hasn’t gotten congressional authorization to attack ISIS. All of the lawmakers gathered Thursday nodded when asked if they supported the suit. McGovern said there was only one thing he wished was different about it.

“I wish the lawsuit were filed against Congress,” he said.
