Black Mizzou Students Speak Out Over Racist Attack On Campus

Nearly a year after students protested racial bias on campus, black students at University of Missouri are speaking out against yet another instance of racism they say happened on their campus.

A group of black students claim they were verbally assaulted and called racial slurs by a group of white students on Tuesday.

The black students are members of Mizzou’s group, Legion of Black Collegians (LBC). The group shared a statement on Twitter on Tuesday, recounting the details of the incident.

According to the statement, a group of six to seven white students passed two black, female members of LBC when a white woman from the group shouted, “look at those n****rs* looking at us.” The black students contacted other LBC members to report that they didn’t feel safe, according to the statement. When police noticed the disruption, they approached the group to check out what was going on.

After police got involved, members of the Delta Upsilon Fraternity, whose house the incident occurred near, began recording the encounter and yelling obscene language at the black students. LBC writes that the fraternity members called them “Mizzou PC,” “c**ts,” “b****es,” and “n****rs.”

The statement goes on to say that some cops were trying to control the LBC members instead of the white students while one cop “used excessive verbal force WITH his hand on his gun” to try to calm one black student down.

Mizzou officials told HuffPost on Wednesday that they’ve notified the Office of Student Conduct and the Office of Civil Rights and Title IX. The interim vice chancellor for Inclusion, Diversity and Equity is also meeting with the victims of the attack to offer support. Authorities identified and will question one suspect of the verbal attack, but LBC is demanding tougher repercussions.

Interim Chancellor Hank Foley said the incident does not represent the school’s values in a video posted on Twitter. In a statement, he also said that Mizzou is “committed to fostering an inclusive campus environment where all students, faculty, staff and visitors can live, learn, work and feel safe.”

“We have zero tolerance for actions like this; if any student is found in violation of the Student Code and/or the University’s nondiscrimination policies, they will be subject to discipline, up to and including suspension and/or expulsion,” he said. “As we have stated, this is a new day on campus and we take our core values of Respect, Responsibility, Discovery and Excellence seriously.” 

While the university hasn’t announced what repercussions the alleged attackers will face,  Executive Director at Delta Upsilon International Fraternity Justin Kirk has placed Mizzou’s chapter of the fraternity on emergency suspension while the school investigates.

“Racism and sexism have no place in our Fraternity and we expect our members to be positive contributors to inclusive campus environments,” Kirk said, journalist and Mizzou alum Katherine Knott reported on Twitter.

In November 2015, former university system president Tim Wolfe resigned due to pressure from students who said his approach to continued racial problems on campus was nonchalant. 

Protests at Mizzou had a trickle effect on campuses across the country and turned the nation’s attention to the microagressions and racist practices at universities. 

“Any student that selects to intentionally use hate speech on a campus that pushes the morals of ‘inclusivity’ and ‘diversity’ does not belong and their presences continues to foster the apparent dichotomy amongst black and white students,” the group wrote in the statement. “To say that we are disgusted is beyond an understatement.”

LBC notes that Mizzou students are still trying to heal from the injustices they faced last year.

“[Black students] have experienced yet another triggering event to remind them that students still walk amongst peers who feel superior in their privilege,” the group wrote. “It is blatanly obvious that all of this superfical work has been nothing more than a discussion with little action behind it. Quite frankly, WE. ARE. SICK. OF. THIS!”

More than one hundred students attended a demonstration condemning the recent attack at Mizzou’s student center on Wednesday. The school will hold a townhall Wednesday evening and LBC will hold a group prayer afterwards for students to heal and ask questions.

A Marathon, A Heart Attack And A Comeback.

Ericka grew up in southern Vermont. She was a year younger than me and a class behind me in school. She had a contagious grin, played field hockey and ended up at many of the same outdoor “bon fires” that I did. High school is a time of fuzzy memories, flashes of lots of people crammed into a car listening to Dire Straits, late night runs to Friendly’s for ridiculously large hot fudge sundaes, laughter and just a general sense of togetherness. Looking back I don’t think I ever had more than a 10 min conversation with Ericka which was completely normal for high school.

In November of 2009, Ericka collapsed and her heart stopped at mile 23 of the Philadelphia Marathon. Her story and road back are remarkable and have made a deep impression on me. It was while I was out visiting a friend in Denver several years ago that Ericka’s story was passed on to me. I am passing it on now in hopes that it inspires and motivates someone else.

Ericka discovered a love for running in her 20’s during a marriage that needed to end. She would strap on her headphones and head for the trails where she could clear her head. She started running further and faster and decided to sign up for her first 5K. From then on she was hooked. She trained her way up and through a 10K, Half Marathon and then Marathon. She ran the New York Marathon and several others and then qualified for the Boston Marathon. Ericka ran with her dad in several of the marathon’s. Her father was a doctor and also an avid runner.

The Philadelphia marathon was to be a big family affair and her father, older brother, mother and several other family members were taking in the train in to be on the sidelines. Ericka recounts the night before as being full of laughter, carbs and anticipation.
Her last memory of race day was of posing for a family photo in the lobby of the hotel at 6:30 in the morning. Her family was lined up near the end of the course, waiting for her to run by. They knew her average times and when ten min went by with no sight of her, they began to worry. At 30 min, Ericka’s mother was frantic.

Around mile 23, Ericka pitched forward suddenly and fell to the ground, hitting her head. Witnesses recount that she did not appear to try and brace her fall with her hands. At that exact same moment a nurse named Mary Kay Silverman was running by Ericka in the opposite direction. The marathon course is set up so that the runners essentially run in a loop. The front runners are heading back to the finish line while many other runners are still heading out to the midpoint where they will turn around. The course diverges from mile 17 to 21, away from the runners heading to the finish line. Had Ericka collapsed even two minutes earlier, Mary Kay would have been on a different path and not even within eye sight of her.

At first people thought that Ericka had fainted but Mary Kay knew it was cardiac related and immediately set to work to keep her blood circulating. She began CPR. The second amazing piece of this story is that Ericka fell only a few yards from one of the official medic tents, staffed with EMT’s, on the course. There were three total tents/stations along the route, the other two were at the beginning and midpoint of the race. The fact that the EMT’s were able to reach Ericka within three minutes of her collapse and shock her heart back into rhythm undoubtedly saved her life. She was transferred immediately to Hahnemann University Hospital. Once there, Ericka was put into an induced coma while doctors began to lower her body temperature in order to try and prevent swelling and brain damage. Four days later on Wednesday, Ericka woke up. Her first vision was of many faces peering down at her. One can only imagine the complete disorientation and confusion she felt. Ericka was told briefly that she had been in an accident. She went back to sleep for another 24 hours. These are all the facts, but facts don’t convey the whole story.

Inside those four days, Ericka’s family lived hour by hour. Her big brother moved a cot into her hospital room and slept there every night by her side. Her mother, could barely stand to see her shivering, as she knew that Ericka hated to be cold. She had to stop herself from putting blankets over Ericka and trying to warm her up. The family held a constant around the clock vigil.
After Ericka woke up, her mother recounted that her brain was moving very slowly. Ericka asked for her cell phone on Thursday and took about a half hour to type a two line text message. Someone could have typed it for her but she insisted on doing it herself.

The diagnosis was a congenital heart defect. It had been there since birth. It could have failed her at any time during those other five marathons, but she never felt dizziness, chest pressure or labored breathing. In the weeks that followed Ericka grew well enough to leave the hospital in PA and return home to MA. Her father helped to find one of the top doctors in congenital heart surgery and her corrective “open heart” procedure was scheduled for the beginning of February at Mass General Hospital.

Those five weeks of waiting were among the hardest weeks of Ericka’s life. She was essentially on modified bed rest at home. She could not go to work but worst of all, for someone who is a top athlete and long distance runner, she could not exercise. She felt fine and grew frustrated with the long days and time at home.

The day of the surgery arrived and Ericka was terrified. Thoughts raced through her mind; maybe she had been saved by mistake and now she would not survive this surgery. She was sedated and then put under anesthesia and placed on a Heart/ Lung bypass machine. Ericka’s chest was opened up and the five hour long surgery began. It went off without a hitch and her heart was responding perfectly. The recovery began again in earnest.

As she began to heal physically, Ericka began to wrestle with the reality of what her life might be like going forward. She was 38 years old and the surgery had been a success but her cardiac doctor remained cautious and steadfast in his warning to her that she should not run again. So much of her self-identity was wrapped up in being a runner. She had the surgery with the hope that it would allow her to live a normal, active life. All of her cardiac stress tests came back beautifully, heart fully functioning and pumping blood perfectly.

Ericka was at a fork in the road. She could have accepted the doctor’s medical advice that she should not run again, or she could seek a second opinion. Ericka’s dad understood what running meant to her. He consulted other doctors around New England and found a specialist at Dartmouth Hitchcock Hospital who would re-evaluate Ericka. She had more stress tests, again they looked great. The new doctor agreed to clear Ericka for running, only no marathons. She was given instructions on how to monitor her heart rate, run with a heart monitor and was placed on a Beta Blocker. It was summer of 2011 when Ericka received this news by phone that she could run again. She took several weeks to let it sink in.

Her family was on vacation a few weeks later and during a lull in the activity, her father quietly pulled her aside and asked if she wanted to take a few spins around the track nearby. They went together and ran side by side slowly. And it was hard. It did not feel good. It felt like she was running up hill and she was hyper aware of every beat her heart was making. They ran for ten minutes that day. In the weeks and months that followed, Ericka began to build her strength and endurance back up slowly. She ran only indoors, on a treadmill and in a gym that had a defibrillator. She gradually increased her mileage. She entered a 5K and then a few more.

Ericka’s biggest triumph was the completion of the Disney Orlando half marathon in October three years ago. She ran the race with Mary Kay Silverman by her side. The two have become very close. I was able to reach MaryKay Silverman just this week as I was editing this article. I asked her how that day in 2009 had impacted her life. Mary Kay relayed that although she was an RN and the Director of Emergency Services at Hahnemann Hospital it was much more nerve racking to be doing CPR outside of a hospital, on the ground and with no one else around for backup. She said the EMT’s arrived in only a few minutes but those minutes felt much longer at the time. Once they did arrive and take over, amazingly, MaryKay got up and rejoined the marathon, officially finishing the race. She hardly remembers those last 3.2 miles but felt it was important for her to try and finish.

When MaryKay got to work the next day at the hospital she called up to the ICU and asked if a woman in her 30’s had been brought in in cardiac arrest, fearing Ericka had not survived. She remembers feeling so grateful to hear that Ericka was alive and that they were keeping her on the cooling protocol and monitoring her brain for swelling. When Ericka did wake up, she and her family were told that the nurse who had saved her life, actually worked there in the hospital and Ericka asked if she could meet her. MaryKay described this reunion as emotional for everyone. In all the years she has worked as a nurse this experience impacted her more than any other. She kept in touch with Ericka while Ericka was waiting for her heart surgery and in the months afterward kept checking in by email and phone. When Ericka was fully recovered she went to spend a weekend with MaryKay. They talked for hours and discovered that they had so much in common. In the seven years since that fateful day, Ericka and MaryKay have become fast friends.

On a personal note Ericka, has inspired me to start running. The image of Ericka and her dad running around the track the first day back and how hard it must have been mentally and physically stayed with me. When I felt like I could not get enough air in my lungs during runs or became frustrated with my slow progress, I thought of her and I kept going. 6 months later I trained for my first 5k. Today I run four times a week and I am training for a 10k.

In the years since her collapse Ericka has gone on to make the world a better place. She has established a yearly 12 days of giving tradition where she chooses a different charity for twelve days and posts links and information on her social media, raising awareness and asking people to donate if they can. She is one person but she has inspired so many.

People may read this story and wonder if Ericka is taking undue risk. I see a woman who is choosing to live life on her own terms. None of us know how long we have and most of us forget to live each day to the fullest. If you are reading this story and fighting your way back from something, I hope that it will inspire you too. Ericka believes that when your time is up, it’s up. It was just not her time.

September Is Childhood Obesity Month — Get The Facts

The obesity epidemic continues to dominate headlines–and for good reason. Obesity is a leading cause of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and stroke. Many of these conditions occur in adults but often begin in childhood. This September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. By knowing the facts and taking steps to help your children live a healthier lifestyle, childhood obesity and its resulting complications may be prevented.

The Facts

According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), one in three children in the U.S. is overweight or obese. Childhood obesity doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years. Why have we seen such a dramatic increase? Although genetics play a role and obesity runs in families, our genetics did not change in the last 30 years. What has changed is our diet and other environmental factors. The bottom line for many of us is that we eat too much, especially sugar and processed foods, and are not as active as we should be. The CDC recommends that children get at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day. But in our increasingly sedentary world, children are more like to be found playing on an iPad than on a baseball field.

Signs & Symptoms

Due to the many health issues associated with obesity, it’s important that parents recognize both the immediate and long-term effects.

Immediate Health Effects:

• Risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as high triglycerides or high blood pressure.
• Indicators of prediabetes, a condition which signals insulin resistance and a high risk for development of diabetes.
• Fatty liver. Fatty liver can perpetuate insulin resistance and is associated with metabolic syndrome.
• Social and psychological problems such as bullying and poor self-esteem.

Long-Term Health Effects:

• Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and osteoarthritis.
• Overweight and obesity are associated with increased risk for many types of cancer, including cancer of the breast, colon, endometrium, esophagus, kidney, pancreas, gall bladder, thyroid, ovary, cervix, and prostate, as well as multiple myeloma and Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Prevention Tips

The good news is that a few minor lifestyle changes can help reduce the incidence of childhood obesity and improve overall health outcomes. But parents need to be mindful of what their children are eating and ensure they are getting enough physical activity. Parents should aim to:

• Avoid beverages with sugar and high fructose corn syrup (sodas and juices)
• Learn to read labels
• Decrease consumption of hidden sugars and processed foods
• Increase consumption of fruits and vegetables
• Limit screen time
• Encourage exercise
• Provide options for counseling if needed

The 2016 Campaign Isn’t About Rejecting One Man, It’s About Rejecting A Worldview

This post is written by Paul Grossinger in cooperation with Heidi Lehmann.

Hilary Clinton’s greatest mistake of the 2016 Presidential Campaign has been making it about rejecting Donald Trump.

Donald Trump is a parasitic, narcissistic, thin-skinned, bigoted, narrow-minded, and insecure vessel who seeks only money and power. He has no depth, no ideas, and no vision to offer the world; the ideas he spouts merely reflect what he believes the population that can spur him to power wants to hear.

The reason that the alt-right and religious evangelical movements and the holders of their worldview have embraced Trump isn’t because he is some master con artist and they are idiots; it is because the leaders of that movement, from James Dobson, to David Duke, Breitbart, and Roger Ailes, know that Trump is a slave to power and will do and say anything to please the groups of people that can help him acquire and maintain it – theirs.

These people believe that Trump – as an empty vessel – is their last and best hope to reduce America’s trend toward and progressivism and return to a darker age, one of near-universal Christianity, unquestioned white privilege, and a dearth of cultural vibrancy and embrace of tolerance and human rights.

The Democratic Party in 2016 is the only legitimate, electable option that represents the ideals of progressivism, tolerance toward minorities, human rights and the rule of law here and abroad, and creating a more fair and equitable society. The fact that Hillary Clinton herself is an imperfect candidate should be completely irrelevant. This year should be about soundly rejecting a xenophobic and recidivist worldview and continuing America’s imperfect, lurching, yet admirable march toward being a better and more open nation.

Hilary Clinton is doing herself and this country a disservice by making this election about why Donald Trump is bad, why the nuts and bolts of her policies are better, and why the economy is ‘good but not good enough.’ She is making a mistake when she veers negative and calls millions of people deplorables, whether it is true or not. No one does or should really care about such nuance in a campaign as existential as this one. This year is about the soul of our society.

She must veer away from her tendency toward negativity, nuance, and the grey of politicking, and instead speak in broader, positive, and more inspired terms about why America is at once exceptional, special, unique AND imperfect, and how we as a country must COME TOGETHER to reject our reactionary impulses and continue to become the model for the 21st century world.

Liberals love to decry America as a racist, angry place, unique in its catering toward angry xenophobes and slow movement on issues such as LGBT rights and better race relations. Undoubtedly, there is truth to parts of this vision of reality. Yet, this is a flawed belief that does little to inspire a positive vision for the world or inspire Americans to continue toward that better vision. America today IS flawed but it is a far better and more open and free place than it was in 2008, and a whole universe away from the world of the mid-1990s, or, for that matter, the 1950s era that the alt-right would like to emulate.

In 2008, gays couldn’t marry and in the mid-1990s, they could barely adopt children and laws were passed forcing them to hide their identity while serving their country. Today, none of that is true. Millions of our brothers and sisters still struggle to live fair and equitable lives in many states, contributing to wide imperfections and variance in quality of life across this country, but the progress is there. More important, the path and vision are there.

In 2008, black Americans were still being incarcerated at record rates. In 1996, the country was at the height of our “lock em’ up and hide the key” period. Today, we see daily reports of unjustified shootings and protest against brutality, and while this reflects how imperfect our society still is on the issue of equitable race relations, it also reflects the fact that we are having the most honest, open, and candid debate on real racial issues in this country since the 1960s. Our current progressive embrace of this debate is the first hurdle to producing real and enduring change.

In 2008, Hispanic Americans were still deported at will, and Latino immigrants brought to the US still deported with impunity. In the mid-1990s, Hispanic rights were barely even a debated issue. Today, hundreds of thousands of Dreamers have a legal path to citizenship and America nearly offered it to millions more under Presidential executive order. Continuing progress in this area under a democratic administration and more liberal Supreme Court would certainly correct that injustice.

In 2008, America was coming off eight years of Bush-era intransigence on climate change, with the Kyoto protocol a distant memory. In the 1990s, America produced the highest emissions in our history. This year, we signed the groundbreaking Paris Accord and once again became the global leader on confronting climate change. We have a long way to go, but the progress is undeniable.

True progressives will always want more, faster. That is good and right. Yet, mistaking desire for faster, greater change for assuming that the entirety of the so-called “mainstream polity” is the same is a grievous mistake. Manifesting that mistake in a protest vote for a third-party candidate who has no chance of winning and every chance of steering the country into the hands of the alt-right ‘major-minority’ is the most grievous and inexcusable mistake of all.

There is no “mainstream polity” anymore, at least reflecting in our two major political parties. Donald Trump’s campaign is a vessel of a radical, alt-right, religiously and racially exclusive message to change this country back to an earlier, sadder age.

Gays, blacks, Hispanics, women, immigrants, Muslims, Jews, and everyone else who is not a white, natural-born American protestant have much to fear from this agenda and worldview. It is time everyone wakes up and realizes it.

There is an old poem reflecting on the Nazi-era World-War II experience that goes something like this depending on the telling:

“First they came for the Jews, and I stood aside because I was not a Jew.
“Then they came for the gays and the disabled, and I stood aside because I was not gay or disabled.
“Then they came for the Catholics, and I stood aside because I was not a Catholic.
“Then they came for me.”

Mainstream Americans, Americans of every creed, color, sexuality, and personal experience with this nation, must reject such attempts to divide us and unite to progress to something better. Only then will we continue, albeit imperfectly, our growth toward being a better nation.

Do You Walk The Walk?

Have you ever sat in a public space and listened to people talk on their cell phones? Much like a soap opera, sometimes you can’t help but get pulled in. This happened to me recently as I waited at an airport gate. First, let me say, I don’t usually spend my time trying to eavesdrop. OK, if I’m really honest, sometimes I do. LOL! I am a curious person by nature. So when one particular conversation was loud and right in front of my face, I couldn’t help but pay attention.

For at least 45 minutes, a woman sitting directly in front of me coached her friend on the other end of the line through what seemed to be a difficult relationship. This petite blonde woman was a warrior with her strength and heartfelt conviction. She encouraged her friend to love herself and to set boundaries. She sounded like a woman of wisdom. Over and over again, this woman professed how she might handle herself if she were to face a similar situation.

That’s when it hit me: many of us are really great at coaching others. We can see so clearly what another person needs to be happy. But when it comes to our own lives, we often can’t see the forest through the trees. It’s like my dad used to say, “You can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk?”

Sometimes it’s really hard to walk the walk.

Have you ever asked yourself why?

Most of us were raised to make others the authority of our lives. We were told from a young age that others knew better than us. So we learned to listen to their opinions more than our own. And if we didn’t listen, we were often punished.

In order to survive, we lived by the “good child” rules and disconnected from our true selves. Instead of being grounded, happy people, we grew up being confused adults. This is why it’s so easy to talk the talk, but not walk the walk. We’re not listening to ourselves.

To walk the walk, you must go within and take back the authority of your life. You have to break the rules to discover what is right for you.

Here’s the problem: You were probably taught that anything to do with taking time to look at your own life is selfish and wrong.

Here’s the truth: It is due to THIS training we receive when we’re young that sets us up for even greater confusion when we grow up.

It’s time to retrain your brain! It’s time to stop the confusion.

If you’re not already walking the walk, here are four keys that will help you get started:

  • Talk to the little kid inside of you and ask, “What do you think? What’s right for you?” Or, “What makes you tick?”
  • Take back the reins of your life and give yourself permission to be you.
  • Ask your inner child, “What can I do for you today to help you stand in this truth?”
  • Take action

Taking the time to get to know who you are and what makes you tick is NOT selfish. In fact, it is your most selfless act of all.

As you love yourself unconditionally, you connect to the Divine wisdom inside of you. Instead of living in a state of emotional angst and confusion, you become more peaceful. And in this peace, you trust that you are enough. Your life becomes playful, passionate, and even prosperous. Every area of your life, your relationships, your work, and your health, are affected for the better.

This is not only fabulous for you, but it’s great for the people around you! They get to watch you and learn.

So, it’s time to get real honest with yourself. Are you a person who walks the walk? Or do you talk the talk?

I wonder about the woman at the airport. She felt so strong in her advice. I have no idea if she practices what she preaches. What I do know for sure is that the woman on the other end of the line would not have needed so much coaching if she were tapped into her own Divine wisdom.

As you take back the authority of your life, you clear the cobwebs and shift out of confusion. With each step you take to love and listen to yourself, you get grounded in your wisdom. Little steps become giant steps of trust. You stop talking the talk and finally walk the walk, and become a Leader of Love.

How To Use Mindful Breathing To Reduce Stress

How to Use Mindful Breathing to Reduce Stress
By Aaron Baker & Fit Mom Diet

Living with the stress and anxiety of a spinal cord injury is not relatable for most, however I found many techniques for managing stress that are. One such technique is Mindful Breathing, a simple yet effective way to quickly shift your disposition.

What is most exciting and interesting to me is that I discover new ways of living & being in the most random places. Case-in-point: After graduation, my classmate Shannon and I parted ways for over a decade. Our lives went on without ever crossing paths (except for social media) until one day we bumped into each other at a food/nutrition convention in Los Angeles. Shannon and I happen to work within the same industry (health & wellness) and on that day we were both seeking education and to enhance our knowledge base. Since then we have remained in contact and now share useful information and techniques with each other that although are from completely different backgrounds, serve as useful tools for life.

So within this blog is information that is eons old, but framed within the context of today’s busy, stressful lifestyle of working mom’s, entrepreneurs, athletes and those, like me, that live with some form of disabling condition.
Shannon Dougherty and Kim Miller are co-founders of FitMomDiet.com and outline below a useful strategy (that works for me) for reducing and managing anxiety and stress that seems ubiquitous amongst our western society.

Mindfulness is the practice of becoming aware.
Basically, paying attention to thought and habit. When anxiety surfaces it’s very easy to simply react, which only feeds the problem more and creates unhealthy patterns. Alternatively, if we use mindful thought and breathe to bring awareness to the situation we can begin to rid ourselves of the stress we feel in these moments.

How to Practice Mindful Breathing

Focus on Breath
Mindful breathing is often referred to as “belly breath”. It comes from deep within the diaphragm. As you breathe pay attention to the air coming in and out. If you find it beneficial place your hands on your belly and feel the rise and fall as you breathe. It helps to count breath for some people. Inhale to the count of three and exhale to the count of three. Breath becomes almost rhythmic in the process and you have to pay attention to it in order to ensure you continue in that manner. Although this can be done anywhere, finding a quiet spot to do this is useful.

Cultivate Acceptance
As you breathe set an intention of acceptance. An intention is the formation of something you aim to create. Think of it like seeds in the ground. You cannot grow things until you plant. When you set an intention of acceptance you envision being peaceful with your experience. As you begin you might find yourself falling back into frustration, hurt, fear and frustration. Refocus on your breath and once that is established set your intention again. Moving to a place of acceptance is a critical factor in reducing anxiety. We are typically anxious because we want to deny an experience. When we accept, we can begin to take the necessary steps we need to in order to move forward.

The old saying holds true, “If you cannot change your circumstance, change the way you think about it.”

Create a Practice
It might be tempting to use these strategies only in the midst of major anxiety or panic attacks; however, creating a daily practice can be much more beneficial. Creating a mindful breathing practice helps it become second nature. You will start to live in a peaceful state of mind and when faced with anxiety or stress you will have a new tool to help you get over your hurdle. Like anything, we get better with practice. Learning how to mindfully breath will not only help you reduce stress and anxiety but also make a huge difference in your overall health and happiness.

Where to Draw the Line

Where to Draw the Line


From the acclaimed author of the perennial favorite Boundaries, Where to Draw the Line is a practical guide to establishing and maintaining healthy boundaries in many different situations. With every encounter, we either demonstrate that we’ll protect what we value or that we’ll give ourselves away. Healthy boundaries preserve our integrity. Unlike defenses, which isolate us from our true selves and from those we love, boundaries filter out harm. This book provides the tools and insights needed to create boundaries so that we can allow time and energy for the things that matter-and helps break down limiting defenses that stunt personal growth. Focusing on every facet of daily life-from friendships and sexual relationships to dress and appearance to money, food, and psychotherapy-Katherine presents case studies highlighting the ways in which individuals violate their own boundaries or let other people breach them. Using real-life examples, from self-sacrificing mothers to obsessive neat freaks, she offers specific advice on making choices that balance one’s own needs with the needs of others. Boundaries are the unseen structures that support healthy, productive lives. Where to Draw the Line shows readers how to strengthen them and hold them in place every day.

A Non-Political View On Immigration

I am a political independent who has concerns with both major presidential candidates.

In addition, I particularly dislike the negative focus on the subject of immigration, a dynamic and vital part of our American heritage.

Except for Native Americans, all of us have immigrant roots. All of us benefitted from the welcoming attitude of the immigrants who preceded us.

In fact, the spirit and energy of immigrants have made America into the greatest nation in history.

Whether it’s the potato famine in Ireland, religious persecution in Europe, or more generally seeking a better life, the reasons immigrants come to the U.S. proves they are a class of people who have the courage to pull up stakes, face the unknown, and play any hand they are dealt to fulfill their dreams. They are people on the move!

America thrives on their energy and spirit. Our Statue of Liberty invites all with the statement: Give me your tired and your poor…because the opportunity in America is so powerfully transformational.

One of the wealthiest people I know arrived here at age 13, living alone, penniless, staying alive by shining shoes. All of us know of stories like that.

America desperately needs that immigrant spirit and energy, because the downfall of any country–and every extinct civilization to date–has been a complacency bred by those who achieve success, became seduced by its fruits, want to protect the “status quo,” and thus become a blockage to growth and development.

From a practical standpoint, experts would tell us that overly restricting immigration is a stagnant, if not dangerous attitude for a complex dynamic like America, as pointed out in a recent article by David Brooks:

  • One study found each new immigrant produced 1.2 new jobs.
  • One report found immigrants accounted for 28% of all new small businesses in 2011.
  • From 2005-2012, 40+% of tech start-ups in Silicon Valley had at least one foreign-born founder.
  • One study found 2-3% of Mexican, Guatemalan, and Salvadorians without high school degrees were incarcerated compared with 11% of their domestic counterparts.

These statistics indicate America grows more solidly by its immigrant than by its domestic population.

So for the welfare of our nation, we need a healthy flow of immigrants to offset those who seek an America for themselves. We of course should seek accountability for undocumented immigrants. But we also should not forget those who pioneered and developed this country sometimes didn’t let the rules interfere with their vision. So let’s take their desire and progress into account.

Speaking frankly, I’m not moved by fears of terrorism. Since 9-11, I’m proud of the exceptional job our people have done in protecting us from foreign terrorism, and the record clearly shows we should be more concerned with acts of domestic terrorism than what ISIS has been able to incite within our borders.

I further have great confidence that it is only a matter of time our armed forces in working together with other nations will erase the ISIS caliphate.

I’m not qualified to talk about the need for a “wall” along Mexico’s border. But at the very least, it is demeaning the American Spirit to have the Statue of Liberty opening up to the world on one side of America, while something is closing America on the other side.

Keep ‘Em Talking

Due to advances in contemporary Neurology, we know that emotional wellness depends upon the body and brain remaining in constant communication. The only issue is whether or not we are listening. “The brain implies the stomach and the stomach implies the brain; they are mutually intertwined in this democratic web of reciprocity.” (In An Unspoken Voice by Peter Levine)

The challenge becomes: How do we keep this “democratic web of reciprocity” moving, keeping the brain and the stomach talking? And what happens when their conversation is interrupted? Let’s look at two common ways to stop the brain and stomach from talking.

Too Much Brain

People inclined to get a bit top heavy with too much brain fill our academic institutions. Hence, young people have an abundance of modeling of too much brain. Too much brain easily gets translated to “I must be smart”. When in actuality, it more likely means we are defending against deep feelings by dissociation. Internal sensations and emotions are translated into abstract concepts taking up residency in the prefrontal cortex. We unconsciously separate from our emotions and internal sensations. I ascribe an airiness to the activity of the cerebral cortex. Our energetic field moves upward. We become anesthetized by air, no longer in touch with our bodily experiences. There are several consequences to this affinity with air.

Loss of grounding. When we lose ground we feel less stable, less rooted and less balanced. We may be confused about where we are and where we belong.

Loss of presence. When floating from abstract concept to abstract concept, we lose a sense of presence. We are energetically soaring rather than landing somewhere. Others will struggle to find what really matters to us and we will miss what others cherish. This form of dissociation also serves to keep us invisible, therefore immune from being hurt.

Loss of objectivity. When we dissociate or separate from strong emotion, our emotions become unconscious and autonomous. They impact and influence our thinking without us being able to notice the role they play. Refining our capacity for discernment can be seriously compromised.

More reactionary. Separating from emotion and bodily sensations tends to make them more autonomous, causing us to react rather than respond with deep consideration.

Less able to respond appropriately to danger. Anesthetized by air separates us from instinct, which offers us vital information about danger and how to create safety.

Too Much Body

A common but not quite as popular disruption of the brain-body transmission is too much body, or too much preoccupation with the five senses. It is not as popular because it does not masquerade as intelligence as the dissociation of too much brain does. This occurs as we separate the activity of the five senses from our emotions, or separate our senses from abstract thinking and internal sensations found in muscle tissue and joints. This kind of separation of our senses from other internal processes can also be described as dissociation. Life is stripped of its mystery and our internal landscape goes ignored. Our five senses are not integrated with emotion, abstract thinking and internal sensations. Our experience is reduced to what we see, touch, hear, smell and taste. The 19th century Danish Philosopher Soren Kierkegaard coined this process “Tranquilized by trivia”. It may be that the alleged payoff of being so tranquilized is that what really matters to us remains hidden, even from ourselves and therefore cannot be abused by others. There are several significant losses due to reducing our life experience to our sensual experience.

Meaningful building blocks of rapport are sacrificed. It becomes extremely difficult to build a deepening and evolving rapport with others. Significant questions are ignored: Who am I in this relationship? What is being asked of me, and what do I want from the other? How do I work with conflicting needs and diverse beliefs? What are my emotional needs? How am I doing asking for what I want?

Increased anxiety. Life will relentlessly remind us that it is much larger than what our five senses can handle. As life’s challenges bang on the door of the psyche, feeling overwhelmed and ill-equipped sets in. Life’s intensity continues, characterized by: loss, change, loneliness, illness, death and a myriad of defeats.

A lost capacity to generate meaning. The ability to generate meaning is lost, as life becomes a soap opera of minutiae. The ability to explore large considerations goes missing, such as: What do I truly cherish? What is life asking of me? What are my values? What is my purpose? How do I continue to create the life of my choosing?

Opening Brain-Body Communication

“Allowing yourself to observe your inner process activates brain pathways that connect the rational and emotional parts of the brain.” (Bessel A. van de Kolk.) Observing your inner process, means tracking internal sensations. Examples include: butterflies in the stomach, clenched jaw, fluttering in the chest, tightness in the legs, pressure on the upper back, jittery feet and numb hands and fingers.

Either tranquilized by trivia or anesthetized by air mostly are ways to cope with the slings and arrows life will inevitably present. When we employ them we are mostly attempting to generate safety, by coping with feeling helpless and alone. However, safety and being fully alive depend upon a capacity to regulate the nervous system. This can only be accomplished by keeping body and brain in constant conversation. This dialogue is encouraged as the brain observes internal sensations. Such a relationship arouses instinct, an unbridled imagination and an undomesticated intuition. All of which contribute to a unique individual living an inspired life.

A Beatles Story

Earlier this month the documentary movie The Beatles: Eight Days a Week-The Touring Years, directed by Ron Howard, aired on Hulu. I hope it enlightens viewers too young to remember Beatlemania, the 1960s phenomenon. Almost all Americans of a certain age have a seminal Beatles memory — the first time they heard one of their catchy songs, or when they saw them on The Ed Sullivan Show or watched one of their movies.

My memory goes back to the assassination of JFK shortly after my fourth birthday. Three months later, in February 1964, the Beatles had their first hit in the United States. From that time on, until I was ten and they broke up, I heard them everywhere, playing over sound systems throughout New York City where I lived. Even at four, I loved their music. Then, in 1968, when I was eight years old, my father, my ten-year-old brother, and I were walking around the Upper East Side of New York City at the end of a weekend together. My parents were divorced, and my brother and I spent every other weekend with Dad. While strolling through our neighborhood, I spotted an intricately painted Rolls Royce parked on the street. The car was bright yellow with a psychedelic design covering its entire surface. Dad explained that the Beatles were in New York, and that the Rolls, which had been painted by Peter Max, an artist who embodied the ethos of the mid to late 1960s, belonged to them. There were no guards, not even a chauffeur in view. Today, a luxury automobile owned by the most famous band in the world would have security twenty-four-seven. Almost five decades later, I remain amazed that we saw the Beatles’ Rolls Royce on the Manhattan streets.

After sighting the Rolls, Dad informed us that Paul McCartney and John Lennon were staying in the apartment building on the corner of 73rd St. and 3rd Avenue, around the block from the home we shared with our mother. Dad’s first cousin, Robby, lived in that building. Now in my fifties, I’ve learned through Internet research that John and Paul were in New York that spring to introduce their recording label, Apple, on the Johnny Carson Show. They’d hoped that by staying in a private apartment they could avoid screaming, intrusive fans.

The day after my dad’s revelation, several other girls from my building hung out with me after school. One of my friends reported she’d heard that Beatles’ fans had snuck into Cousin Robby’s building through the basement of the A&P, which was on 3rd Avenue between 73rd and 74th Streets. We were thrilled to have Beatles so close to us.

The Beatles visit to New York in 1968 coincided with the brief time my mother owned a miniature Schnauzer named Eddy. The night after encountering the Rolls, Mom asked me to walk him. She explained that my brother was immersed in homework, and unknown activities preoccupied her. The sun had already set, and this was the first time I ever ventured outdoors alone after dark.

No fool, I headed toward Cousin Robby’s building with Eddy in tow. At the canopied entrance of the building, a group of roughly thirty people had gathered. I asked someone what was happening, and an excited fan gushed that the Beatles were expected to come out any minute. No other children were present, and the other fans didn’t notice me. The research I read years later stated that Beatle fans had learned of the band’s location, and all sorts of predictable mayhem ensued. But that night, the small assemblage of fans waited quietly on either side of the building’s canopy, and I stood with them along with my small dog. After fifteen minutes or so, John and Paul hadn’t emerged, and I thought Mom might worry if I stayed out any longer. Reluctantly, I walked home.

My mother didn’t notice when I returned to our apartment. I like to believe that if I had waited just a little longer, I could have been a yard or two away from John and Paul, and my story would have a different ending. But a close-up view of their psychedelic Rolls Royce and a near sighting of the Beatles themselves is still a treasured memory for any child of the 1960s.

When I was ten, the Beatles broke up the same spring I left New York City, where I had lived until then. I began the next stage of my life with my mother and brother in California. Although I experienced some serious issues in the first part of my childhood, much of that decade had been positive. The second half of my childhood on the West Coast was radically different.

The Beatles represent everything that was good about the early years of my childhood, but also everything I lost when that part of it ended. Sometimes it’s hard for me to hear Beatles’ music in public, and I’m often overcome with sadness. Although a small memory, this one is mine alone, which makes it deeply meaningful and especially dear.

Licensed nurse, Sonia Russell, LPN is recognized as a leading expert in hCG diet research and weight loss safety. Many dieters have claimed to be weak, tired, complain of hunger, frequent headaches and hair loss on the original 500 calorie VLCD.

The 800 Calorie Protocol includes the use of vitamins and minerals, adding breakfast, more protein sources, an extra fruit serving, and more food choices. The results have shown to yield the same, if not better weight loss when compared to the original 500 calorie protocol. The modified version also includes an improved phase 3 stabilization plan by removing certain foods that many dieters have been known to overindulge upon. The 800 Calorie Protocol teaches the principals of eating clean by prohibiting canned and processed foods, fat free/sugar free store bought foods or products containing preservatives, flavor enhancers, pesticides, herbicides, sugar substitutes, corn syrups or hormones. The dieter will learn healthier ways to grocery shop, read food labels, and prepare and cook healthier foods.

GM Wants To Fill The Gap Volkswagen’s Dieselgate Scandal Left

In June 2014, General Motors CEO Mary Barra stood stern-faced in front of her employees and a battalion of cameras and said: “I never want to put this behind us.”

The Detroit auto giant had admitted to selling cars with faulty ignition switches that caused the vehicles to turn off without warning in the middle of driving. At least 124 people died in accidents caused by the defect.

Since then, the company has taken pains to refurbish its image. GM invested $ 500 million in the ride-hailing startup Lyft ― the “nice guy” runner-up to industry goliath Uber ― and vowed to help it build a fleet of self-driving taxis. It committed last week to running 100 percent of its operations with renewable energy by 2050. It poured money into electric vehicles, enough to beat Tesla Motors at its own game, bringing the first affordable, mass-appeal all-electric car to market. 

Now, GM plans to tap a market left wide open after the biggest auto industry scandal since its own infamous ignition switch failure. Last week, the automaker announced plans to offer a diesel option with the 2018 model Chevrolet Equinox, its best-selling small sport utility vehicle. The move comes a year after Volkswagen, the world’s largest automaker by sales, admitted to cheating on U.S. regulatory tests for its diesel cars, which spewed 40 times the legal limit of smog-causing emissions into the air.

The German auto giant agreed to pay a record $ 14.7 billion to settle with the U.S. government. Last month, the Department of Justice announced a plea deal with an engineer who designed the engine workaround. Unlike any executives involved in GM’s scandal two years ago, he may now face jail time.

Both incidents implicate companies that took fatal risks by sending to market products that weren’t quite ready. Volkswagen failed to design a diesel engine that could meet U.S. standards, so it cheated, causing, according one study, up to 60 premature deaths. GM, fearing an expensive recall, continued to sell faulty cars for nearly a decade after discovering the flaw. 

Popular in Europe, diesel ― which is roughly 30 percent more efficient than gasoline ― has struggled to catch on in the United States. Diesel-powered vehicles made up just 3 percent of total U.S. sales in 2014. Volkswagen made up about half of them, according to data from the U.S. Department of Transportation. 

As The Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday:

GM hopes to fill a niche in the U.S. vacated by its German rival’s pullback. And Chevrolet last year added a diesel-engine option to its Colorado midsize pickup that has drawn favorable reviews from car critics, emboldening GM to expand its diesel offerings.

“It’s only been since the VW challenges that people have been sort of scratching their heads a little bit” about diesels, GM North America President Alan Batey said in an interview. “But we’ve been absolutely thrilled with how they’ve taken off for us.”

If GM can popularize diesel vehicles, the company can help reduce the overall carbon footprint of its fleet, which it’s aggressively pushing to modernize with electric, self-driving alternatives. Slashing, and ultimately finding ways to eliminate, carbon emissions from vehicles is critical to meeting goals set in last December’s historic 180-nation Paris climate agreement.

Last year, Barra, announcing the company’s better-than-expected third-quarter earnings, declared that GM was “a vastly different company today than just five years ago.”

Whether GM can succeed where Volkswagen failed may be the clearest test of that yet. 

GM did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Sunday.

What The Buddha Would Say To Mr. Trump

If a bull goes straight when the herd is crossing a road, then they will all go straight because he leads the way. The same among people. If the one who is thought to be the highest lives in goodness, the others do so too. The whole realm lives happily if the ruler lives rightly. The Buddha

This is true when the leader is virtuous and honest. But Donald Trump is leading his followers into a quagmire and they don’t even know it. He is using the most destructive of qualities–greed, hatred and delusion–to gain power and prestige. This is the behavior of an egomaniac who thrives at others’ expense.

We are not presuming to know what the Buddha might say to Mr. Trump, just as we don’t presume to know what might be said to any of us. But the Buddha clearly taught about the dangers of greed, hatred and ignorance, what he called the three poisons, that Trump displays frequently. Where greed grabs our desires, hatred uses fear to incite insecurity and then blames everyone else, while ignorance clouds our vision.

The three fires of greed, hatred and ignorance destroy the mind from which they are born. The Buddha

The mind is everything. What you think you become. The Buddha

Greed has many relatives, such as ambition, self-centeredness, pride, grasping and clinging, giving rise to dissatisfaction, irritation, frustration and anger. The craving to have and possess stops us from giving; it generates a fear of not having. Donald Trump personifies greed in his desperate desire to win at all costs, no matter how he does it. For instance, he insists on flying aboard his luxury jet, rather than a more practical airplane, at a cost to taxpayers of millions of dollars.

Hate is destructive, indiscriminate, like a snake it can rise up out of nowhere and attack. It is most seen in prejudice, whether against different races, political beliefs, or sexual preferences. When we are fixed in the belief that we are right, then anything that questions or threatens that belief becomes the enemy and must be eliminated. Hatred’s many bedfellows include criticism, sarcasm, misogyny, and racism. Need we say more?

The Buddha pointed out that such hatred becomes our own worst enemy for no matter how much we try to annihilate the hated one, the hate remains inside us, slowly destroying and eating away at our own happiness.

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; while you are the one who gets burned. The Buddha

Abhorrence towards others is based on the belief that we are all separate from each other, that I am more important than you. This breaks friendships and families, while creating self-righteousness and arrogance. Prejudice closes our heart and shuts down our sensitivity.

The moment that you think of doing harm to someone, that thought harms you first. Unless you hate yourself, you can’t hate others. If you love others, that means that you create the feeling of love within you first, and then you offer the love to others. Your thoughts pass through your entire system, and are expressed through your mouth and through your hands and actions. Without thinking, you cannot speak or act. So the harmful thought, from its very origin, spoils your system. In other words, you can’t hit anyone else without striking yourself. Sri Swami Satchidananda

Where hatred closes our heart, delusion makes us believe there is a permanent, separate and fixed ‘me’ so that we take ourselves very seriously. It belies a lack of awareness, especially of anything outside ourselves. This is the ignorance of our essential connectedness with all others.

The heart is like a garden. It can grow compassion or fear. What seeds will you grow there? The Buddha

What You Can Learn From Talking To A 90-Year Old

2016-09-25-1474825017-4549814-L1010393.jpg
Pretty good shape for 90 – must be those G&Ts

Last week we celebrated my father-in-law’s 90th birthday.

There was a time when even getting to 90 was a major achievement, and if someone were lucky enough to make it to 90, they were generally frail, wheelchair bound and barely aware of the celebration going on around them.

I remember when my great grandmother hit 90. She was in a nursing home, bent over, in a wheelchair. She barely knew where she was, or who she was. That was some time ago.

For my father-in-law, Ken Pattenden, nothing could be further from the truth. The man still stands a lean and wiry six foot plus (as I am only 5’6″, I find this alone intimidating), has a full head of hair, a crushing handshake, an athlete’s build and more than all his marbles. I suppose it’s a tribute to genetics and clean living.

In any event, to celebrate the event, we all gathered in one of those massive old English country houses (did I mention that he lives in the UK?), and gathered the family for a weekend long party.

Ken was born in 1926, (you don’t have to be a math major to have figured that one out), one year before Charles Lindbergh became the first person to fly across the Atlantic. Lindbergh’s flight took 33½ hours in a tiny, one-seater, single engine plane made of wood and cloth, lacking even a front window. It was hailed as the ‘wonder of the world’.

Our trans-Atlantic flight took about 6 hours. We slept most of the way in the reclining beds and we watched a movie. They also served us two meals. Lindbergh brought along some sandwiches.

The world has changed a lot since 1927, when Lindbergh made his historic flight. Sometimes, we lose sight of that.

This remarkable transformation, all of it, took place within my father-in-law’s lifetime.

At dinner, I asked Ken about his experiences in the Second World War. He served in the British navy, assigned to Alexandria, in Egypt. At that time, Britain was still the British Empire and Britain ruled one-quarter of the world’s surface and also ruled one-quarter of the world’s population. Today, they are down to a few islands, and maybe Scotland, if they stay lucky.

But, prior to the war and signing up with the Navy, Ken had grown up and lived in London. This was during the Blitz, the German bombing of the city, and he recounted that as well – walking past houses that had been simply blown to oblivion overnight, and never knowing when or if you were going to get hit.

As we chatted, his wife of 60 plus years, Anne, who was sitting next to him also joined in.

She recalled that as a child in a small English village, they had no running water. Her mother had to go to the well in the center of the village and fill jugs each day. They had no central heating – all of the heat, and the cooking, was provided by an open fire. They had no indoor plumbing, but rather an outhouse behind the house. And no electricity, at least in the earliest days. They had no refrigerator, but instead an ice box that would, when it was available, be stocked with a block of ice to keep food cool.

She remembered the first car in the village, the first phone. She went on to become a head teacher. Ken became an accountant.

The transitions in the course of their lives, from the time they were born until the present is, well, mind-boggling. The changes they have seen and personally experienced represent a transformation so massive that, frankly, personal computers and iPhones (he is quite good with his), which we think of as major are, in fact, minor events.

When Ken and Anne were born, the world was, in many ways, far closer to what it had been for more than 500 years in the past, maybe a thousand. Most transport was done by animal power or walking. Agriculture was largely driven by animal power as well. Modern medicine was virtually unknown. You could die of a simple infection. Penicillin only came into public use in 1942! Last year Ken had laser cataract surgery and a few years before, an artificial replacement knee.

Automobiles, airplanes, telephones, refrigeration, running water, central heating, electricity, modern medicine, television, radio – the changes that their one lifetime has encompassed was probably the greatest transformation that any generation has ever seen, or for that matter, is ever likely to see.

We like to complain that ‘things are bad’. This is particularly true in this election cycle. Things are terrible. Things have never been worse.

What we are lacking is a sense of history.

Talk to a 90 year old the next chance you get. I think you will see that things are not quite so bad after all.

Gennifer Flowers Says She Will Attend First Presidential Debate As Trump’s Guest

Gennifer Flowers, a model and entertainer who had an affair with Bill Clinton while he was governor of Arkansas, said that she will attend Monday night’s presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, at Trump’s invitation.

Flowers’ assistant confirmed her attendance to BuzzFeed. The Trump campaign did not respond to The Huffington Post’s request for confirmation.

Trump threatened to invite Flowers if Mark Cuban, a celebrity billionaire backing Clinton, attended the debate.

Juanita Broaddrick, a retired nurse who maintains that Clinton raped her in 1978, told HuffPost that Trump had not asked her to attend.

“It’s a little late to make travel arrangements but it would be delightful to attend such an epic event. Maybe I will get an invitation to the next one,” she said in a Twitter message. 

Monday night’s showdown, which will be the first time Hillary Clinton and Trump appear on the same stage as candidates, is expected to draw upwards of 100 million viewers.

If Trump indeed invited Flowers to the debate, it will be a virtually unprecedented stunt for a presidential candidate.

President Bill Clinton admitted in sworn testimony in 1998 that he had had an affair with Flowers while he was governor of Arkansas. During his 1992 presidential campaign, he denied having the affair, which Flowers claimed lasted 12 years.

Trump experimented with dredging up 1990s-era conspiracy theories and scandals associated with the Clintons, including the former president’s well-documented sexual peccadilloes. But he has mostly refrained from employing these attacks in recent months.

In inviting Flowers to the debate, Trump has decided it’s wise to humiliate the first female presidential nominee from a major party for her husband’s infidelities.

Vital Lessons Learned From The Chelsea Bombing From A Chelsea Psychologist

The following post was created for Self-Therapy Month at Techealthiest. This is Part One.

When frightening events like the Chelsea bombing and the additional planting of nine other bombs from New Jersey to New York occur, we have no choice but to create a mental file in which to place our thoughts, feelings and images associated with the attack.

It has to be stored in your memory one way or another.

Those of us who live or work in New York City have been more directly affected by this nerve-shaking attack, but its explosive effects are, without a doubt, far-reaching, as news, commentary and images have been repeatedly catapulted from the media toward our eyes and ears, which essentially forces us to make sense of what happened.

At worst, you’ve been vicariously traumatized by the bombing (or directly traumatized if you were on 23rd Street that Saturday night). The more common reaction among is to be shaken and disturbed in the days following the bombing, followed by a few weeks of talking about the bombing with your social and work circles.

Social media essentially guarantees that you’ll have to grapple with disturbing thoughts about the attack, but for how long will  these thoughts linger in your mind?

This leads me to the question I’ve been pondering since the event occurred: What is considered a “healthy” way to reflect upon the Chelsea bombing way after the event, as well other terror attacks that have occurred (and God forbid might happen again)?

Here are four things to be remembered about the attack that will promote health and personal responsibility.

1) Use the memory of this event to remind you of all that you currently have, most notably things that money can’t buy.

You actually are rich because you have everything you need right now. Dare to be more thankful than you’ve been of late. Let the memory of the terror attack spark a feeling of gratitude toward the people in life who are invested in your happiness AND the people who don’t seem invested in your happiness.

It’s just too easy to lose touch with what matters most. Life can change in a split second. Don’t forget that but it’s not healthy to think about this idea all of the time because it can turn to anxiety if it becomes an obsession.  See this horrible event as a beautiful opportunity to be reminded of all that you have, especially your freedom, friends, health, family or whatever matters most to you.

2) Think twice…three times…a thousand times about the consequences of spreading hatred before you utter a single word.

There are two hugely important points here. First, on a personal level, when you spread hatred, you’re killing the cells in your body. You lose. A part of you dies. The spread of word venom is an artificial way to expand your ego by diminishing others. It certainly makes you depressed and it pushes people away from you, except for people who either are as angry as you are or whose lives are devoid of meaning and are looking for something to believe in.

Second, the expression of hatred on the web can cause real harm to people. There are people out there who feed off of hatred. Keep in mind that social media creates a thunderclap that spreads like wildfire through the web. For people who feel powerless, this is a place to gain a synthetic sense of power. Hatred on social media spreads like cancer, and makes everyone sick.

Please know that if you’re constantly ranting on Facebook about Trump or Clinton or any person or group with whom you have a major problem, most of your “friends” are viewing you as crazy. They probably contemplated defriending you, but they’re either lazy or they don’t want to have to randomly face your scariness in the supermarket or at your next high school reunion. Instead, they’ve subtly unfollowed you and connected your current venomous behavior to a past memory of you being something negative. Please know that I’m referring to the expression of hatred, not anger, the latter of which can often be healthy and productive to express.

3) The collective American attention span is shrinking at an alarming rate. 

The speed at which information travels makes us more likely to be satiated at a faster rate. In other words, you’ve probably been bombarded by news of the bombing so much that you eventually either tune it out completely or you go numb when you hear about it. The danger here is that you’re likely to miss the value inherent in remembering what happened and what could have been.

How do you counter a natural tendency for your emotional reactions toward the Chelsea bombing to become watered down as a result of social media satiation? At minimum, make a reminder to mention the bombing at your next major family, religious or other gathering. Talk about the event in terms of how it affected you and what you now feel thankful for. Another strategy is to find a way to express your thoughts and feelings about the event though a creative modality that you repeat even months after the disturbing event. For example, if you dabble in acrylic art, create a series of paintings over time which serve as an expression of your inner experience of the incident.

4) Crowdsourcing is a weapon against terror.

Yes, social media (and the media in general) spread hatred, false beliefs and dangerous calls to action faster than the world as ever known. How little it takes for an individual to incite violence on the web is scary, but various forms media can also (obviously) be used to spread good and inform people of important developments. Case in point: the capture of Ahmad Khan Rahimi, the Chelsea bomber. Harry Bains had been watching CNN, which allowed him to recognize Rahimi who was sleeping next to Bain’s bar in Linden, New Jersey. This is loosely an example of how crowdsourcing can aid in spreading valuable information to combat terror.

Who knows what the next incident will be? Use the internet as a way to inform people if something suspicious is happening in front of you. You have the loudest megaphone ever created in the form of Twitter and Facebook.

There’s much more to say here, but it’s time to digest and return to this topic soon. This essentially reflects the optimal strategy. Ponder the horrible events that occurred. Learn from it. Vow to appreciate life more at least in the short term. Move on but return to it at a later date. Just don’t forget.

Stay tuned for Part Two of my lessons learned from the Chelsea bombing.

Fixing Our Food System Shouldn’t Be A Partisan Issue

Whether it’s the massive amount of food we waste, the burden large agribusinesses places on our environment or the staggering number of children who go to bed hungry every night, the American food system is obviously quite far from perfect.

The question of how to address the above failures is, of course, a tough one. In fact, it’s a question so tough it’s gone mostly ignored, so far, in the presidential contest.

The answers that some call for involve the implementation of further regulations for farmers, food manufacturers and consumers alike, and advances in these areas are often touted as successes by “good food” activists like Michael Pollan, author of Food Rules and The Omnivore’s Dilemma.

But not all food rules are good food rules, and many regulations concerning the American food supply have actually had a negative impact on food producers, particularly small ones, while incentivizing instead the sort of practices preferred by larger, corporate producers.

Such is the argument laid out by food writer, attorney and professor Baylen J. Linnekin in his new book, Biting the Hands that Feed Us, out this month.

In just one example, Linnekin points out how the cosmetic standards laid out by the EPA and USDA and adhered to by many retailers result in countless pounds of “ugly” but otherwise delicious produce — an estimated half of all the produce grown in the U.S. — going uneaten.

The book makes a strong case that the biggest issues facing our nation’s food supply are ones deserving of bipartisan solutions — and that those solutions might actually entail fewer, better food laws instead of a spate of new ones.

The Huffington Post recently spoke with Linnekin.

What was the inspiration behind your new book? Who did you write it for?

Obviously, I would never have written the book if I didn’t think sustainability in our food system wasn’t an important goal. But I think people look at sustainability as something that must be supported always by stricter and stricter, more and more, greater and greater regulations. I think that would turn off anyone who identifies as a conservative or libertarian and I think that’s too bad. As I point out in the book, this is not the case.

I think I’m appealing to the people on the ideological right to recognize that there are ways to have a sustainable food system that don’t involve the government telling us everything to do. I’m also pointing out the ways that some on the right, like Michele Bachmann, the former representative of Minnesota, are big recipients of farm subsidies and are hypocrites on these issues. And to the people on the left, I’m suggesting that not all regulations are bad. The book is about how some regulations are bad, and if we’re unwilling to repeal the bad regulations that harm the food system you want to exist, I think you need to take a long, hard look in the mirror.

None of these are political issues that belong to either the Democratic or Republican or Green or Libertarian Party. These are issues everyone can, should and does care about.
Baylen J. Linnekin, food writer, attorney and professor

This is, essentially, a conservative case for fixing our food system. Would you agree with that assessment?

I should stress that I identify as a libertarian and not a conservative. There are people that I portray in the book, like Thomas Massie, a more libertarian-minded member of Congress who raises grass-fed beef on his farm in Kentucky, who has co-sponsored legislation with Chellie Pingree, a stalwart liberal member of Congress who is, likewise, an organic farmer who lives on an island off Maine. I think that’s a great example of the actual food movement, the people who really care about the small farmers on the ground and the individuals that want to make their own food choices, rather than the sort of politicized food movement. They recognize that so many regulations value large producers over small ones, wasting food and getting in the way of people growing fruits and vegetables in their own yards.

None of these are political issues that belong to either the Democratic or Republican or Green or Libertarian Party. These are issues everyone can, should and does care about. I’m not trying to discourage people from getting too “political” about their food, but I think that when some of the ideology gets in the way of recognizing that there is room for collaborating with people who you don’t agree with on some issues to create meaningful change, you’ve got blinders on. I hope this book will be a way to look at food regulations and food sustainability in a different way such that people will come to see others, whether they be Republicans or Democrats, as a partner on food issues instead of this sort politicized enemy.

In your book you discuss food waste reduction efforts as a promising example of bipartisanship on this. Could food waste activism provide a model of collaboration going forward?

We certainly need less partisanship on issues like this. Some of the good food rules I cited in the book are ones that have tackled food waste. The Emerson Act was named after a Republican congressman who passed away before that law took effect and was sponsored during the Clinton administration, which was not exactly an era of cooperation, but was very successful in the Republican House, and President Clinton signed it gladly. The PATH Act was sponsored by [Republican] John McCain and several Democrats. Those are both efforts to increase food donations with the ultimate goal of reducing both hunger and food waste.

I think food safety is another area where there’s a divide, particularly on the left, between supporters of local food and supporters of increased food safety. I don’t know exactly how to bridge that schism between people like Pollan who identify as local food supporters and people like Marion Nestle who are more aligned with food safety rather than local food. I think my appeal would be for food safety supporters to rally support for regulations that actually make our food safer.

You do criticize some individuals and programs typically revered by the food movement — not only Pollan, but also the Michelle Obama-backed Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, as two examples. Were you nervous to air these critiques of folks held dear by many who would be considered your book’s target audience?

I wasn’t the least bit nervous. I think that disagreement and debate is healthy. I’m certainly not lashing out at Pollan [for his support for the Food Safety Modernization Act] or calling him names. I think it’s important to add to the discourse and constructively dialogue with one another. With the first lady and the National School Lunch Program, it’s important to point out that the idea that the first lady created food waste in the program is absurd, but it’s worth noting that food waste has increased due to some of the measures in the act.

There is obviously a lot of work to be done to get both these “bad” food laws repealed and “good” ones passed. What do you think all of us can do, as consumers and eaters, to speed up progress?

Some of the things I talked about in the book include the role of consumers in, say, ugly fruits and vegetables. The regulations the USDA and EPA have established make wasting the “ugly” fruits and vegetables often times easier than actually picking them at the farm and trying to sell them. The government’s at fault there, full stop. But it’s also incumbent upon consumers to change their behavior and recognize that.

Now, I’m not a food anarchist and this is not a book about eliminating all rules. This is about eliminating the bad ones, but also changing our own behavior and expectations to also improve the food system and make it more sustainable.

Are you optimistic that we are on a path toward a better food system?

I think I am optimistic. I think there is a growing interest and understanding about food and sustainability, and people increasingly care about this even if it’s not sort of traditionally in their political or ideological wheelhouse. I think that trend will only continue.

If you look back maybe 10 years — even 5 years — food waste, for example, was an issue very few people were talking about and now it’s very much at the forefront of the food system. As I note in the book, if food waste were a country in terms of how much waste it contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, it would be the third largest country in the world, behind the U.S. and China in terms of its GDP. I think that shows the potential impact reducing our food waste from the 40 percent we currently waste to even cutting it in half would have on both the food issue and climate change.

If readers take one thought away from reading your book, what do you hope that will be? 

I hope that people who are skeptical of sustainable food because they think it’s a system that requires billions of new regulations will read this book and come to embrace sustainability in food not as something that requires this huge new regulatory structure, but as something that would actually benefit from deregulation in many ways.

And I hope supporters of sustainable food who I think are sometimes guilty of thinking we just need more rules will instead recognize that the people arguing against more regulations aren’t always wrong and that perhaps these two groups can meet somewhere in the middle and hold hands and eat a sustainably raised, grass-fed hamburger.

The Advantages of Vegetarianism

The Advantages of Vegetarianism


The practice of abstaining from meat has been found in many cultures throughout history, and ethical reasons have been a major motivation behind the choice to eat a vegan or vegetarian diet for centuries. Eastern traditions such as Buddhism and Hinduism have a long history of vegetarianism. The interest in a meatless diet in the West had a rebirth in the 18th and 19th centuries with the Enlightenment. Rationales for adopting a vegetarian diet have changed over time. For some, the concern is over cruelty to animals and a wish to avoid that. Others are concerned that the enormous quantities of grain fed to cattle to be consumed by rich Westerners are contributing to world hunger. Another ethical concern is how the resources required for raising animals for food affects the environment. One other reason commonly cited, especially recently, is for health reasons; this subject will not be treated in this pathfinder although some of the sources cited contain information on vegetarian nutrition and health benefits.

Trump Hotels Covered Up A Massive Credit Card Theft. Then They Let It Happen Again.

WASHINGTON ― Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s luxury hotel company agreed Friday to pay a $ 50,000 settlement and beef up its security systems after investigators found that Trump’s hotels failed to notify customers that a hacker had stolen their credit card numbers and personal information from Trump Hotel computers.

Following the initial identity theft in 2015, Trump’s hotels never implemented the cybersecurity plan they were given to prevent a second attack. As a result, Trump’s hotels and some of his condo properties were hacked again less than a year later. When banks alerted the company to the second hack in March, Trump Hotel Collection waited three more months before telling potential victims about the second hack.

“It is vital in this digital age that companies take all precautions to ensure that consumer information is protected, and that if a data breach occurs, it is reported promptly to our office, in accordance with state law,” said New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in a statement about the settlement on Friday. New York law requires that companies inform their customers as soon as possible about the suspected theft of personal information.

After they initially tried to cover up the first cyber attack, hotel employees did nothing to fix the vulnerabilities, despite having received written recommendations on how to protect their customers from hackers and thieves. This left Trump’s hotels defenseless when the hackers struck a second time. Once again, Trump waited months before alerting potential victims.

The handling of cyber theft at Trump’s hotels offers a window into his apparent willingness to compromise the financial security of his customers to make sure his luxury hotels save money or save face.

“Unfortunately, cyber criminals seeking consumer data have recently infiltrated the systems of many organizations including almost every major hotel company. Safeguarding our customers’ data is a top priority for the company and we will continue taking actions to do so,” a Trump Hotel spokeswoman said in a statement.

Trump has built his presidential campaign on the idea that his self-proclaimed skill as a manager and a negotiator will translate into an ability to manage the United States government and its more than 2 million employees. He also paints himself as the only candidate who will “make America safe again,” a slogan that recently helped Trump to win the endorsement of the national Fraternal Order of Police.

The real estate mogul asks voters to evaluate him based on his management style, his “excellent temperament” and how his businesses are run. But the handling of cyber theft at Trump’s hotels offers a window into his apparent willingness to compromise the financial security of his customers to make sure his luxury hotels save money or save face.

Over two years, payment systems at seven of Trump’s most prestigious hotels were hacked, and more than 70,000 credit card numbers were stolen, according to the New York attorney general. The breach affected Trump hotels in Chicago, Las Vegas, Toronto, Florida, Hawaii and New York ― in short, the crown jewels of Trump’s hospitality empire.

According to the settlement announcement, here’s what happened.

  • May 19, 2014: “An attacker infiltrated Trump Hotel Collection’s payment processing system by accessing an administrative account, and deployed malware designed to steal credit card information across the THC computer network.”

  • June 10, 2015: “A preliminary forensic investigation confirmed the existence of credit card targeting malware at multiple THC locations, including in the computer networks associated with New York, Las Vegas and Chicago hotels.” 

This is when Trump’s hotels first became aware of the breach, and of the credit card-stealing software. It would be another four months before they told their customers and the potential victims of the theft. A final report on the hack “recommended that Trump adopt additional security precautions including “two-factor authentication” for remote access to the THC network.

But Trump never did, so the interconnected hotel credit card system, as well as the payment systems at Trump condominiums, remained open to attack.

  • September 25, 2015: Trump Hotel Collection “placed a notice on its website about the data security breach.”

  • November 10, 2015: “The attacker installed credit card harvesting malware on 39 systems affecting five hotel properties including Trump SoHo New York.”

  • March 21, 2016: “The attacker connected to a legacy payment system on the network of the Trump International Hotel & Tower New York which included personal information of THC property owners, including the names and social security numbers of approximately 302 people.”

  • March 30, 2016: Trump Hotel Collection “received additional reports from its payment processors about a second breach.”

  • April 4, 2016: Trump hotels adopted the much safer, two-factor login system. According to the attorney general, “If Trump Hotels had adopted this solution after the first breach, consistent with its forensic investigator’s recommendation, it may have prevented the second breach.”

  • June 10, 2016: Trump “provided consumer notification to these affected individuals.”

In addition to settling with the state of New York for $ 50,000, Trump Hotels also agreed to implement a seven-point plan to bring its cybersecurity policy and practices up to date. This will include keeping a designated cybersecurity manager on staff, regularly testing their systems, and training all employees in how to handle sensitive personal information.

The data breach is just one of a number of legal problems Trump is facing in New York. After thousands of complaints from customers, Schneiderman’s office is also investigating Trump’s now-defunct seminar scam, Trump University, as well as his charitable foundation, the Donald J. Trump Foundation, amid reports that Trump used the charity money to buy things for himself. 

The question of how to protect the United States from cyber threats became a major theme of the election this summer after hackers with links to the Russian government stole documents and emails from the Democratic National Committee that were then leaked. 

At one point, Trump encouraged Russian hackers to break into the personal email files of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who is facing her own questions about cybersecurity during her tenure as secretary of state. 

So far, Trump has offered little in the way of actual policy to address how America should respond to the recent uptick in cyberattacks against both the government and the private sector. 

Earlier this year, he was asked if he thought the U.S. should engage in cyber warfare. “Cyber is absolutely a thing of the future and the present,” the GOP nominee told The New York Times. “Look, we’re under cyberattack, forget about them, and we don’t even know where it’s coming from.”

On Monday night, Trump will debate Clinton in New York, where the topics will relate to domestic policy. Foreign policy and national security will be the subjects of later presidential debates.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

My Stepmom Died And That’s Not Okay

I’ve been having some health problems.

In order to resolve them, I did what any good adult would do: I went to the doctor. It turns out, I’m stressed. I’m stressed in the kind of way that makes your eye twitch for no apparent reason and makes you cry when you drop your fork on the ground (it had one last bite of broccoli on it, okay?).

My doctor asked me about my life and what I have experienced in the last year. I droned on about my engagement (yay!), moving to a new city, planning a wedding, financial troubles, health problems, and the passing of my stepmother.

“You said your mother-in-law died?”

“No, my stepmom.”

“Oh. I was about to say…that is awful! Not that losing your stepmother isn’t awful, but…”

My stepmom passed away seven months ago. This is not the first time I have experienced a less-than-sympathetic reaction. This is not the first time I have had to stifle my tears and reciprocate a stranger’s words with a forced smile. Our society has an innate bias towards the word stepmother.

I blame Cinderella. Thanks, Disney.

I have to be honest here: we bickered a lot. She was stubborn. I was stubborn. We fought, but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t love her. It doesn’t mean that it hurt any less when my father called me on that otherwise beautiful Thursday morning and told me she was gone. It doesn’t mean that I didn’t have to dig deeper than I ever thought possible, to find strength I didn’t know I had, to organize a funeral and finalize all of the details so my dad didn’t have to.

I haven’t fully mourned her loss yet. I don’t know if I have it in me to. She has been in my life since I was a tiny human running around with my blanket and sucking my thumb. With my wedding less than two months away, it’s finally starting to hit me that she wont be present. There are certain things that have always meant more to me when she would say them. Hearing her tell me that I’m beautiful has always been one of them. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because you expect your biological parents to tell you you’re beautiful. Maybe it means something different when it comes from a “step.” Knowing that I wont hear those words from her on that day stings. It stings the way a stranger’s words sting when they assume I’m fine because I only lost a stepparent. I was only her stepdaughter.

The loss of a stepparent is confusing. Sometimes I feel guilty. Sometimes I feel angry. Sometimes I feel like I shouldn’t be allowed to feel sad because she wasn’t actually my mom. Sometimes I feel like I’m betraying my actual mom by feeling sad.

And, what may be the worst of all feelings, sometimes I feel like I don’t get to feel sad because at times we simply didn’t get along.

I know I’m not the only one who has experienced (or is experiencing) something similar. I know I’m not the only stepchild who has experienced this kind of a loss. I want to change the narrative. I want people to understand the complex range of emotions that can accompany the death of a stepparent when both biological parents are still very active in a child’s (or adult’s) life.

I am blessed. I have an amazing mom and I have a phenomenal dad. I also have a kick-ass stepfather whom I love dearly. Just because I have all of these things, that doesn’t mean that my stepmother’s death should be diluted. I am not deserving of less time to grieve or less time to process what happened simply because my bio parents are amazing.

What I am deserving of is a little bit of compassion.

It has been seven months.

And I think I have finally started to grieve.

This post is part of Common Grief, a Healthy Living editorial initiative. Grief is an inevitable part of life, but that doesn’t make navigating it any easier. The deep sorrow that accompanies the death of a loved one, the end of a marriage or even moving far away from home, is real. But while grief is universal, we all grieve differently. So we started Common Grief to help learn from each other. Let’s talk about living with loss. If you have a story you’d like to share, email us at strongertogether@huffingtonpost.com.

‘Love Hormone’ Oxytocin May Enhance Feelings Of Spirituality

The same hormone that helps mothers bond with their newborns may also enhance feelings of spirituality, a new study suggests.

It’s been called the “love hormone” and the “cuddle chemical,” but doctors and scientists know it as oxytocin, a hormone secreted by the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland during times of love and bonding.

A recent study spearheaded by Duke University social psychologist Patty Van Cappellen found that participants who received doses of oxytocin reported a greater sense of spirituality than those who received a placebo.

“Oxytocin appears to be part of the way our bodies support spiritual beliefs,” Van Cappellen said in a statement.

For research purposes, the study defined spirituality as a sense of connection to a higher power or to the world that gives meaning to people’s lives.

Eighty-three men between the ages of 35 to 64 participated in the study. Each participant received either a dose of oxytocin or a placebo, administered through a nasal spray.

Researchers found that those who received oxytocin were more likely to report feeling that spirituality was important in their lives and that life has meaning and purpose. They were also more likely to give higher ratings to statements like, “All life is interconnected” and “There is a higher plane of consciousness or spirituality that binds all people.”

Participants also listened to a guided meditation, after which those who received oxytocin reported experiencing more positive emotions like awe, gratitude, hope, inspiration, interest, love and serenity than those who received a placebo.

The study’s results held true regardless of whether the participant reported belonging to an organized religion or not, and they remained consistent a week after the hormone and placebo were administered.

Van Cappellen noted that the results of the study could only be applied to men given that the research subjects were all males. Oxytocin produces slightly different results in men and women, she said, and thus further studies should investigate the hormone’s role on women’s spirituality.

Even among men, the effect might not be uniform. The study also showed that oxytocin has a stronger spiritual effect on people with a particular variant of the CD38 gene, which regulates the release of oxytocin from hypothalamic neurons in the brain.

“Spirituality is complex and affected by many factors,” Van Cappellen said. “However, oxytocin does seem to affect how we perceive the world and what we believe.”

But Van Cappellen isn’t alone in her findings. Previous studies have shown oxytocin to have a profound impact on spirituality, as well as generosity, altruism, and empathy. Oxytocin has also been shown to play a role in experiences of spiritual transformation.

But it has a dark side, too.

A 2010 study of Dutch males out of the University of Amsterdam found that male subjects who received a dose of oxytocin were more likely to express ethnocentric prejudice and xenophobia than those who received a placebo.

Luckily, spirituality isn’t bound by hormones alone. It’s how we choose to define our spirituality ― whether as a connection to all creation on our global home or loyalty only to those who look, act and believe as we do ― that makes all the difference.

Elizabeth Warren Seems To Be Staking Out Her Place In A Clinton Presidency

Earlier this summer, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) became the spear tip of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, skewering Republican nominee Donald Trump in repeated head-to-head battles on Twitter.

Now, the progressive firebrand appears to be staking out her role in a potential Clinton administration as a bulwark against the influence of Wall Street.

“We believe Sen. Elizabeth Warren is succeeding in establishing herself as the chief financial policymaker in a potential Clinton White House,” Jaret Seiberg, managing director at the financial research firm Cowen Group, wrote in an investor memo on Thursday. “She has threatened to stop Clinton nominees with ties to BlackRock and other firms. And she is using the bully pulpit to shape the debate over the Wells Fargo cross-selling controversy.” 

On Wednesday, Warren signaled that she would try to stop any appointment of big bank executives to Clinton’s cabinet. First, she said progressives need to vote Clinton into office. Then, she said she plans to pressure Clinton to fill her cabinet with “advisers who believe in the agenda she has outlined.” 

“We don’t mean advisers who just pay lip service to Hillary’s bold agenda, coupled with a sigh, a knowing glance, and a twiddling of thumbs until it’s time for the next swing through the revolving door ― serving government, then going back to the very same industries they regulate,” Warren said in a speech at the progressive think tank Center for American Progress. “We don’t mean Citigroup or Morgan Stanley or BlackRock getting to choose who runs the economy in this country so they can capture our government.”

BlackRock chief Larry Fink has been widely floated as a possible candidate for Treasury secretary. Fink, whose firm is the world’s largest asset manager, wants the job. He controls $ 4.6 trillion ― about a trillion dollars more than the annual federal budget. Fink almost clinched the position in 2012 after then-Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner stepped down, and he’s assembled what The Intercept calls “a veritable shadow government full of former Treasury Department officials.” 

Hamilton “Tony” James, the president of the private equity giant Blackstone, has likewise been floated for the job. Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg’s name also came up last week. 

“This is about people who understand the urgency of the need for rebuilding opportunity in America now and who will fight for it with everything they’ve got,” Warren said on Wednesday. “People who will fight for every single promise Hillary Clinton has put forward during this campaign ― including her promise to end the revolving door between Wall Street and Washington.” 

Notably absent from her list of personae non gratae was Gary Gensler, the former chair of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission and a partner at Goldman Sachs. 

“Gensler generally enjoys broad support from progressives and is seen as driving the crackdown on derivatives that was included in Dodd-Frank,” wrote Seiberg, the Cowen Group director. “He is also the CFO of Clinton’s campaign.” 

Clinton, for her part, has outlined a fairly progressive policy platform in an effort to appeal to fans of Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who challenged Clinton for the Democratic nomination with calls for systemic financial reform.

“They have taken seriously the need to keep the reform-oriented wing of the party happy enough,” one Warren ally recently told The Huffington Post, “and for now they seem to have succeeded.”

Warren’s speech came a day after she hammered Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf for his role in a five-year scheme in which thousands of bankers opened more than 2 million accounts for customers without them knowing.

“You should resign,” she told Stumpf, speaking at the Senate banking committee. “You should give back the money you took while this scam was going on, and you should be criminally investigated.”

It’s common for Congressional panels to pick apart scandal-struck corporate leaders. But Seiberg predicts that Warren’s “enormous clout” within the Democratic Party will be amplified as senators begin looking ahead to the 2018 election season.

“Yes, there is always a lot of rhetoric on Capitol Hill,” Seiberg wrote. “But her comments went further than what we typically hear. It shows that she is a master of the bully pulpit. And she can use that to frame the debate.” 

“This is why we continue to believe that Clinton will be limited if she wants to moderate policy related to the biggest banks,” he added. “Warren has effectively declared that she has veto power over what Clinton will do.”

Why Self-Improvement Is Ultimately Self-Defeating

2016-09-22-1474574904-1703090-Selfimprovement.jpg

For decades I was a great advocate of self-improvement. From 1980 to 2002 I single-handedly supported the entire $ 10 billion/year market (at least it felt like it), buying spiritual how-to books, going to retreats and seminars and workshops, buying organic cotton yoga pants and hemp-milk, investing in cleanses and colonics and detoxes and God knows what else.

I was on “The Path.” And while it seemed uphill most of the way, it was glorious knowing I was gradually transforming my base human nature into something more refined. In the most heady moments of insight I was sure I was just millimeters away from gaining the ultimate prize: enlightenment itself.

And then … well … let’s just say 20,000+ hours of intense meditation snowballed until Spirit/Source Intelligence/Life (what I call I AM) had its way with me and everything changed. Not “me” – Cate Montana. No, no. She stayed pretty much the same. It was her perspective that shifted. And when that happened and she finally glommed onto the fact that her “self” was a total mental illusion and not who she really was at all (and certainly not what she should be focused on trying to improve), it all basically hit the fan.

Eight years of intense integration later, I’m still an advocate of “self-improvement.” It’s impossible to look at the current world situation–let alone the buffoonery masquerading as the current US political race–and not be an advocate of human improvement.

It’s just that the way we’re currently going about it is total bull crap. As Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) put it in the Fight Club, “Self-improvement is masturbation.”

I didn’t see The Fight Club, but the quote, although shocking, is a powerful truth. The $ 10 billion a year self-help industry has an incredibly high recidivism rate. The entire industry counts on the fact that the people most likely to buy a self-help book are the same people who purchased at least one other self-help book in the last 18 months. Which begs the question: If these books (and related workshops, seminars and retreats) are so damn effective at solving our problems, why the continuing stream of self-help purchases? (And let’s not even think about getting into weight-loss and fitness and bolstering self-esteem!)

Why isn’t all the (well-meaning and often well-educated) advice working?

The reason is this: We’re approaching self-help without having a freaking CLUE what the “self” even is.

I’m hardly the first person on the planet to stagger into the truth that the “self”/ego is a total illusion of the mind. The whole non-dual Advaita Vedanta movement is based on this understanding. So is A Course in Miracles.

But the ego is tricky. It can even get mileage out of taking a course in its own deconstruction. “Yeah, dude, I’m like totally into Neo Advaita. It’s like, that’s where it’s at. Have you read …”

I’m not making fun of people’s sincere quest for greater knowledge and evolution. Nor am I against books that inspire genuine transformation. It’s just that books that inspire genuine transformation are few and far between because 95 percent of what’s out there is coming at transformation from the wrong side of the equation.

The way the ego perceives reality dictates that everything is about the “self” – including books about improving and spiritualizing that self. Which means almost everybody is stuck trying to improve the dream.

Instead of discovering the reality of who we really are — the unified eternal being that the dream of the ego obscures–we’re “self-pleasuring” and tickling the ego. We’re chasing an impossible carrot: the dream of gaining an authentic life by improving an illusion by massaging the illusion.

We’re rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

The way out of this mess is to 1) realize what we’re doing (going nowhere fast), 2) get an accurate handle on what the ego/dream really is, 3) learn about the quantum energetic information-based nature of reality (we’re really non-physical !!)) and finally 4) strive to grasp what we really are (unified energy/information/consciousness directing bodies that only appear physical.)

Is this a lot to ask? Yes. Is it impossible? No!

We’ve got the tools, the language and the incentive. We’ve got the truth available to us. All we need now is the desire to open our ears to hear and our eyes to finally see.

Life Lessons From Radical Remission Stories: An Interview With Kelly Turner

Kelly Turner has studied 1,500 cases of what she calls radical remission–when someone heals from cancer without Western medicine or after Western medicine has failed. Here’s what she uncovered.

2016-09-21-1474488423-1837966-KellyTurnerHuffPoimage.jpg

Omega: Why do you think so few people have studied radical remissions before?

Kelly: I think doctors haven’t studied it because they can’t explain it from their frame of reference; it doesn’t make sense according to the Western medical model. Why other people haven’t studied it is a mystery to me. I came through a side door in the sense that I was counseling cancer patients. I was a psychotherapist who had been trained in social science research, and it was just the right fit because I wasn’t threatened by these cases. As a counselor, I was used to working with people trying to uncover what made them do something or why they were reacting in a certain way. So this idea of digging for answers was already an integral part of my work.

Omega: Do you still believe in the idea of an “incurable” disease?

Kelly: No, I have to say I don’t. I’ve interviewed people who have had massive brain tumors in the center of their brain that were just growing and expanding by the day, and they were sent home on hospice to die. But even they turn it around. Does that happen every single time? Absolutely not. But our goal is to keep researching these rare cases to figure out, “Why did they heal?”

I believe that anything is curable at this point because I’ve just seen it. Even people who say, “Oh I believe my cancer was caused by radiation damage,” they somehow got their body to heal itself and repair itself. It’s hopeful to know that at least a few people on this planet have turned around incredibly dire circumstances where their organs were shutting down. Mostly it gives me a lot of awe for the immune system. While I believe that this system is a physical thing, it’s very much triggered by an integrated mind/body/spirit system.

So in the end it might be the T cells that finally woke up and popped all those cancer cells. But what triggered those T cells to finally wake up? Could it have been spending a year deep in meditation? Absolutely. Yes, we are in these bodies, but everything we’re doing with our mind and our spirit has an effect on the body.

Omega: What suggestions do you have for people who are ill and have exhausted all Western medical resources?

Kelly: It’s important for me to say in every interview that I don’t give medical advice nor do I even give advice really. I’m just here to report on my research, and I can certainly say what radical remission survivors would do from a research standpoint.

If you were really sick and given no more hope or options, I would first understand that since the moment we had books recorded talking about cancer, we had books recorded talking about radical remission. One of the first cases of radical remission was reported in the 13th century.

The second thing to digest is that statistics are general; you are individual. So if there is a .01 percent chance that you’re going turn this around, someone has to be that .01 percent chance, right? Those statistics exist and someone must fall in that rare exception category. Why shouldn’t it be you?

Step three is to read as many radical remission stories as you can, because it just tells you what is possible. Radical remissions happen; they are a fact. You’re not reading fantasies; these are true stories and they actually happened to other people. Just knowing that they’ve happened can start getting you to shift your feelings about your situation.

Omega: What are some of the most powerful changes people can make to their diet without buying supplements or expensive superfoods?

Kelly: The simplest change you can make if you want to eat like a radical remission survivor is to make sure that half of your plate is vegetables and/or fruit at every meal, including breakfast. So if you are eating cereal with milk in the morning, what if you did granola with a little bit of milk and then a huge bowl of fruit? Then you have some whole grains; you have some protein in whatever milk you’re drinking; and half your meal is this big bowl of fruit.

The other simple change you can make is going organic. Everybody freaks out about the cost, but I always say that some of the most expensive things on your grocery bill are meat, alcohol, and dairy. If you reduce meat to once a week, you can really reduce your grocery bill. So the organic fruits and vegetables may cost more, but in the end you’ll go home with the same grocery bill.

Omega: What is the biggest lifestyle change you’ve made since starting your research?

Kelly: I try my best to incorporate all nine of the healing factors in to my life. I would say food is the most tangible because I think about it three times a day, and especially now that I have young children and I’m cooking for them. I don’t really cheat anymore.

From a more emotional standpoint, I would say worrying less has been a big shift that I’ve noticed in the past 10 years since I started this research.

HUFFPOST HILL – President Trump To Feel Your Pain, Inner Thighs

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

A poll finds the staunchly isolationist Gary Johnson nearly tied for first among active members of the military, probably because they don’t want to know what Aleppo is, either. Democratic anxiety over poll numbers are reaching such a level that “A Trump win will really help the Democrats with 2020 redistricting” thinkpieces should be popping up soon. And work crews began construction of the inaugural platform in front of the Capitol, though President-elect Trump will be disappointed when he learns they had to scrap Tommy Lee’s rotating drum kit. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Wednesday, September 21st, 2016:

TRUMP PROPOSES NATIONAL PROGRAM OF NEEDLESS THIGH GROPING – Marina Fang: “Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump thinks the best way to stop crime in black communities is to broaden the use of stop and frisk, a policing tactic that has been proved to be discriminatory against blacks and Latinos. In an excerpt from a Fox News town hall billed as a ‘meeting on African-American concerns’ and scheduled to air Wednesday night, Trump was asked how he would address ‘black-on-black crime.’ Trump replied that he ‘would do stop and frisk,’ a practice heavily championed by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R), who is now a prominent Trump supporter. Trump’s claim that ‘in New York City, it was so incredible the way it worked’ isn’t quite accurate. The tactics used there have been broadly condemned for disproportionately targeting blacks and Latinos while only incrementally reducing crime. It seems unlikely Trump’s endorsement of such practices will help the nominee’s standing with black voters.” [HuffPost]

Donald Trump loves the African-Americans: “Donald Trump on Wednesday suggested that Oklahoma police officer Betty Shelby may have choked when she shot dead Terence Crutcher on the side of a highway last week in Tulsa. Speaking at a church in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, the Republican presidential nominee said, ‘This young officer, I don’t know what she was thinking. I don’t know what she was thinking, but I’m very, very troubled by that. I’m very, very troubled by that. And we have to be very — we have to be very careful.’” [Politico’s Yousef Saba]

TRUMP’S REFUGEE BAN IS JUST LIKE, Y’KNOW, A NOISE ORDINANCE OR SOMETHING – Jose A. DelReal: “Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Thursday said his proposed ban on Syrian refugees is not just about terrorism, but also ‘a matter of quality of life.’ Trump blasted his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, for supporting the admission of refugees fleeing the bloody civil war in Syria during a campaign event here. He has strongly advocated for ceasing all immigration from ‘dangerous countries,’ and in particular countries with “radical Islamic terrorism.’ ‘Think of that. Not only the danger of it all, this isn’t only a matter of terrorism, but also a matter of quality of life. We want to make sure we’re only admitting those into our country who support our values and love — and I mean love — our people,’ Trump said.” [WaPo]

TRUMP DROPPED A LOT OF DOLLARS ON HIMSELF – Donald quantitatively eases himself. Christina Wilkie: “Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign paid more than $ 500,000 in August to companies the brash businessman owns, according to campaign finance reports released late Tuesday. The chief beneficiaries were Trump’s aviation company and his office headquarters in Manhattan: TAG Air was paid nearly $ 320,000 for operating the campaign jet and Trump Tower collected nearly $ 170,000 in rent for the month of August. Another $ 23,000 went to smaller Trump properties and businesses. The biggest single recipient of Trump’s campaign largesse last month was the digital marketing firm Giles-Parscale, which collected more than $ 11 million in fees from the Republican nominee. Brad Parscale, the company’s president, has no formal political experience, but he’s been a key member of Trump’s resort marketing team for nearly a decade. Trump also increased the amount of money his campaign shells out for private security, by nearly 10 times. The expense went from $ 20,000 in July to more than $ 180,000 in August.” [HuffPost]

Keep the Sunlight Foundation’s Libby Watson in the U.S. because, journalists and transparency activists are our greatest asset ― right after oil and Froot Loops.

Hiccup: Yesterday we mistakenly called the Washington Post’s David Fahrenthold Blake, subconsciously confusing him with the Republican Texas congressman. We sincerely apologize to both Fa(h)rentholds. Please don’t Fahren-hold this against us.

TRUMP APPEARS AT RALLY WITH POSEIDON, GOD OF THE SEA – Jennifer Bendery: “Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump spoke to a group of Ohio pastors on Wednesday, and joining him on stage was Frank Amedia, a man who claims he single-handedly stopped a tsunami from hitting Hawaii. Amedia, a pastor who has referred to himself as an apostle and a prophet, co-hosted Wednesday’s Midwest Vision and Values Pastors Leadership Conference. He sent out the invitation, a copy of which was obtained by Right Wing Watch, to evangelical leaders around the state asking them to come ‘meet with Donald Trump in an intimate setting.’ Trump tapped Amedia in May to be a liaison to the Christian community.” [HuffPost]

Also this: In an effort to sway black voters to back Donald Trump, legendary boxing promoter Don King called the GOP presidential nominee the ‘doctor of humanness,’ and then he dropped the n-word Wednesday in a predominantly black church in his hometown of Cleveland. Delivering a freewheeling and at times bizarre speech at a campaign event at New Spirit Revival Center, King made the case for why the African-American community should vote for the New York real estate mogul in November.” [HuffPost’s Igor Bobic]

400-LEVEL KABUKI THEATER – If you bring a meaningless stunt to a knife fight… Michael McAuliff: “House Republican leaders managed to derail a House floor vote last week on impeaching the commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service, but Donald Trump may wish they also squashed a hearing Wednesday on whether or not impeachment was a good idea. That’s because Democrats hijacked the hearing with Commissioner John Koskinen when they got their chance to speak, and managed to skewer Trump’s refusal to release his taxes. One Democrat, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), elevated the exercise to A-level trolling by opening his round of questions while munching on a bag of Skittles in a reminder of Donald Trump Jr.’s recent gaffe about Syrian refugees and the likelihood that they ‘would kill you.’ But that was just pointed mockery. The larger point was to turn a hearing that Democrats deemed a political stunt into a display that instead raised the serious issue of the Republican presidential nominee’s refusal to disclose his taxes.” [HuffPost]

JESUS H. CHRIST, ANTHONY WEINER – This officially downgrades the former New York congressman from “major douchebag” to “monster.” Alana Goodman: “Anthony Weiner carried on a months-long online sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl during which she claims he asked her to dress up in ‘school-girl’ outfits for him on a video messaging application and pressed her to engage in ‘rape fantasies’, DailyMail.com can exclusively report. The girl, whose name is being withheld by DailyMail.com because she is a minor, said the online relationship began last January while she was a high school sophomore and before Weiner’s wife, Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin, announced she was ending their marriage.  Weiner was aware that the girl was underage, according to DailyMail.com interviews with the girl and her father, as well as a cache of online messages.” [Daily Mail]

THIS? IS CNN – FFS, guys, what happened to the CNN of Bernard Shaw, Judy Woodruff and that bitchin’ Cold War documentary you put on in the late 90s? Daniel Marans: “CNN openly mused on Tuesday about whether the U.S. citizen apprehended for his alleged role in a terror plot was entitled to due process under the law. A Twitter user spotted a chyron on the cable network with the question: ‘Does bombing suspect deserve due process?’ Contrary to CNN’s suggestion, no one ‘deserves’ or does not deserve due process. U.S. citizens on American soil are guaranteed due process rights by the Constitution. Those rights include being informed of one’s charges, the right to counsel and a fair trial. (Even non-citizens on U.S. soil are entitled to these rights.) Steve Vladeck, a law professor at the University of Texas School of Law, wrote as much in a column on CNN’s website.” [HuffPost]

ACTUALLY WOW: JOHNSON NEARLY TIED WITH TRUMP AMONG SERVICEMEMBERS – Leo Shane III and George R. Altman: “Conducted in September, it is the first scientific breakdown of voting preferences among service members, and includes more than 2,200 responses from active-duty troops. And it shows a very different race than the one playing out on the broader national stage. Among the entire military force, Trump leads Johnson 37.6 percent to 36.5 percent, within the study’s 2 percent margin of error. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton trails as a distant third-place choice, with only 16.3 percent of troops’ support…. Perhaps most notably, there is a sharp split between enlisted personnel and the military’s officer corps, which directs day-to-day operations and implements policy. Among the officers surveyed, Johnson is the clear choice, commanding support from 38.6 percent of respondents. Clinton actually outpaces Trump in that group, with nearly 28 percent support for the former secretary of State compared to the New York business mogul’s 26 percent.“ [Military Times]

LEAVE THE FED RATE ALOOOOONE – This is probably out of an abundance of caution for when President Trump’s moves to route 30 percent of M1 to Mar-a-Lago. Daniel Marans: “The Federal Reserve announced Wednesday that it will leave its benchmark interest rate unchanged, likely sparing consumers and businesses an increase in borrowing costs for another few months. The central bank’s Federal Open Market Committee kept the target federal funds rate — or the interest rate banks charge one another for overnight lending — at a range of 0.25 percent to 0.5 percent. The federal funds rate is the benchmark for short-term borrowing rates throughout the economy, including auto loans and some housing loans.  Maintaining the current target federal funds rate almost certainly ensures that the cost of borrowing for consumers and businesses will remain low. The decision reflects the central bank’s trepidation about the pace of economic growth, seven years after the Great Recession officially ended.” [HuffPost]

Autumn — Using The Season To Beat Self-Sabotage

2016-09-21-1474490215-9465970-17185939846_31d830277a_b.jpg

I’m sitting here in front of a fire much like the one above with a laptop upon my lap, realizing we’re within a few hours of Autumn Equinox here in the Northern Hemisphere–a time of transition.

Traditionally Autumn is a time of abundant color, pumpkins and squash, heartier harvest meals, and cozy sweaters, yet too often we forget that it’s also a time of fertile transition.

As I sit here in the darkness of the cool night with my face lit by fire, I smell the crinkled leaves around me and hear the sound of crickets singing out their final goodbyes to summer.

I’m reminded that we’re coming full circle again
. Even though we’re in the middle of harvest season, something is dying, and we’re heading full force into the darker nights of winter.

Death is here.

Trees are pulling chlorophyll from their leaves, bushes are celebrating their now shriveled flowers with bursts of berries, and the sun is starting to give us less and less attention.

For me–grief, sadness, shame, and guilt arise. Not because I’ve done anything wrong, but because some potent potential arrived upon my doorstep today and I’ve reverted back to old beliefs and patterns of unworthiness.

For a fleeting moment I found myself celebrating the possibilities, yet in my next breath, I felt familiar negative feelings I’ve carried since childhood.

So I catch myself. When something good starts to unfold for me, I’ve learned to breathe through the rising emotion of fear. If I don’t, I drop the ball, give up and throw in the towel.

You see it’s easier for a lot of us to fall back into old patterns when life starts to get good.

It feels safer to expect hard times because we’ve been conditioned by well-intending parents, television, and books to expect less for ourselves and to play it safe.

We strive for our dreams, working our asses off, and then when the universe starts to deliver something, we say to ourselves: “Oh, this can’t be. I don’t deserve this….there must be some mistake.”

But we DO deserve goodness in this lifetime. We’ve just bought into the cheap belief that we don’t- or that we can’t.

According to Psychology Today, Behavior is said to be self-sabotaging when it creates problems and interferes with long-standing goals.

When deep potential arrived upon my doorstep today, I marveled at her abundant possibilities, yet immediately felt the guilt and shame of old beliefs arising.

As I sat there listening to the crackling fire, I remembered that all familiar things must die–even things we’ve clung to since childhood–familiar things that while toxic, have remained comfortable.

So now as fall wraps her dark abundant cloak of change around me, I throw it all into the fire. I write those beliefs down on paper and throw them into the flames to be consumed by a wisdom older than any of us.

I watch the sun crawl across the sky during these ever-shortening days and I’m reminded that like the light, these memories too shall pass. These voices in my head that I, like so many of us carry, will fade in time as I distance myself each time they arise.

Like nature’s ruthless way of sucking the life out of the plants around us, we have a fertile opportunity right now to suck the life out of toxic beliefs each time they surface.

Nature makes us endure the darkness of winter before the dawn of spring, and we must remember that old beliefs must die before new dreams are born.

Before the harvest of good in our lives, something old and toxic must die. Death is around the corner waiting for payment. Death is a fertile compost transforming demons to fertilize hopeful spring moments leading to abundant summer dreams.

So my hope is that you join me in using this fertile time of year to celebrate the ceremony of fall all around us.

Cast into the crisp winds what no longer serves you and remember to leave behind your self-sabotage like an old season, so that it too can become the fertile compost of your future.

Build Muscle Without Myth: 3 Body Building Beliefs To Avoid

Believe me, after spending many years heavy in the fitness industry, I’ve witnessed more fad fitness trends come and go than I’d like to admit. I’ve also watched many once revered fitness beliefs get debunked and shredded into myth.

Sure, it might take time for a fad fitness trend to get busted – but, thanks to science, the truth is eventually revealed. But, interestingly, the individuals most reluctant to letting go of muscle building and fitness myths are often times personal trainers and exercise instructors, hung-up on the false beliefs and mental dependence to routine. And, some how, even after many years of scientific “debunking,” many fitness myths have managed to float around gyms and health clubs – myths that hold you back when it comes to building muscle. So, in this episode, I’m going to unlock the top three muscle-building myths that you should avoid.

Myth 1: Heavy weights are required to build bulk

It’s certainly true, lifting heavy things will add bulk to your body. But, there are more ways to build muscle. Ann excellent alternative to strictly relying on heavy weights is simply using light weights (or body weight) and increasing your reps.

For example, one study compared the effect of high reps and low reps on muscle growth, comparing sets performed with 80 percent to complete muscle failure with sets performed to 30 percent to complete muscle failure. It turns out that load isn’t the big gun, but simply whether or not a muscle is actually worked to failure and or fatigue, and in this study, high reps and light weights stimulated just as much muscle growth as low reps and heavy weights. So yes, this means you can, for example, build chest muscles by skipping three sets of eight reps on a bench press, and instead doing a few sets of high-rep push-ups to complete failure (which is good to know if you find yourself working out in a hotel room or on your living room floor with no access to weighted plates.).

There are plenty of other studies backing up the muscle-building capabilities of high-rep, low-resistance training. In this study, light super-slow lifting at 55-60 percent of the participants one rep max (1RM) increased both muscle density and maximal strength just as much as heavy normal-speed training performed at 80-90 percent of 1RM. In this study, both heavy weight training with 8-10 reps and light weight training with 18-20 reps stimulated the genes necessary for active muscle growth.

Another study reported that training with higher reps and lighter weights (25-35 reps) indeed results in the same gains in muscle girth and density as heavier weights with 8-12 reps. Even in seasoned weightlifters, researchers found the same muscle growth occurs when comparing 20-25 reps light weight compared to 8-12 reps with a heavy weight.

In this study, high reps and light weight (24 reps with 30 percent) were shown to increase post-workout protein synthesis, a sign of active muscle growth, for 24 hours after exercise, and to a far greater degree than low reps and heavy weights using 5 reps and 90 percent. In yet another study, light weight training, not performed to muscle failure or muscular fatigue, was found to promote and activate protein synthesis just as much as heavy weights.

Ultimately, if you want to quickly add muscle girth and density , lifting heavy weights or heavy objects (sandbags, kettlebells) is the way to go. But you can build the same amounts of girth and density with light weight and high reps. And, to make matters a bit more interesting, this study and this study show that light weights might be the most effective avenue of training especially for the legs.

Myth 2: You must carb up to pump up
Many people have been told that to build bulk you need to eat tons of carbs to ensure a vast store of glycogen. However, a recent study using rodents, proved that this may not be true. In the study, researchers compared a ketogenic high fat diet comprised of 20 percent protein, 10 percent carbs and 70 percent fat with a typical Western diet of 15 percent protein, 45 percent carbohydrate, and 40 percent fat.

It turns out that after a six-week ketogenic high fat diet, rats were just as capable of producing all the biochemical parameters associated with anabolism and building bulk. And yes, while these were rats being exposed to electrical muscle stimulation and not weight training like we humans, you can certainly explore the “N=1” example with a human subject by reading my article “Can You Build Muscle On A Low Carbohydrate Diet” or by visiting a website such as Ketogains.com (which I am not in any way affiliated with!).

Myth 3: You must weight train to maintain

Common thought among those who exercise is “if you don’t use it, you lose it” and that the only way to maintain muscle is to load that muscle regularly.
But there are other ways to keep your muscles lean and toned, even if you’re injured and can’t make it into the gym or weight room. One such method is electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), a topic which I cover in detail in this article.

However, another lesser-known and under the radar method of maintaining muscle is heat stress therapy, which you can implement by using a dry sauna, wet sauna or infrared sauna. One of the mechanisms by which heat stress prevents muscle loss and protein degradation is by triggering the release of proteins called heat shock proteins (also known as HSPs). HSPs can circumvent muscle damage by removing free radicals and supporting cellular antioxidant production, but can also repair misfolded, damaged proteins in muscle tissue. Research has shown that when rats are exposed to heat stress, they activate HSP’s to an extent on par with 30 percent more muscle regrowth compared to a control group. As an extra aging related bonus, one particular HSP (the HSP70 gene) has also been linked to increased longevity, which suggests there may be anti-aging benefits to regular heat stress too!

Growth hormone is also critical for repair and recovery of muscles, and research has shown that two 20-minute sauna sessions separated by a 30-minute cooling off period can elevate growth hormone levels two-fold over baseline. Two 15-minute sauna sessions at an even warmer temperature separated by a 30-minute cooling off period resulted in a five-fold increase in growth hormone. Take away here: Get thee to a sauna – STAT – for optimal muscle retention.

A good note to remember is when hyperthermia and exercise are combined, they induce a synergistic increase in growth hormone, which is why I do yoga, push-ups and squats in my infrared sauna, a practice that I outline in detail here. Additionally, sauna also increases blood flow to the skeletal muscles, which helps to keep them charged with glucose, amino acids, fatty acids, and oxygen. Furthermore, heat stress assists the body while removing by-products of metabolic processes such as lactic acid and calcium ions, so that your body can build new red blood cells at a rate similar to that of illegal performance enhancing drugs such as EPO.

Summary

To be completely honest, I admit that when it comes to building muscle girth and bulk quickly and maintaining lean muscle, there really is no substitute for lifting heavy stuff and stuffing your face with carbohydrate rich sweet potatoes. However, if you don’t have access to heavy equipment, and do have dietary or injury limitations, rest assured that you can build and maintain muscle with simple body weight exercises and low weight training. Add in a low-carb or ketogenic diet, and the use of electrostimulation or sauna and you’ll be on the right track to building and maintaing your muscles.

If you have more questions or comments about these muscle-building myths, then leave your comments below!

Paradigm Lost: Jamari and the Manhood Rites, Pt 1


In 2115, The US has been through numerous earthquakes. Northern California and southern Oregon have formed their own states. A revered man known as the Founder created a society in which a tribe works to meet basic survival needs-food, water, shelter, and procreation. Men and women are separated into separate Halls within The Tribe, and those not part of The Tribe must learn to survive on their own. Among those of The Tribe is Jamari. After living in the Younglings’ Hall for his entire life, he is now ready to embark on the journey of becoming a man. Within The Tribe’s society, all candidates vying to become adults, and then citizens, must undergo rigorous training. His mentor, Shane, has evoked a lust and passion in Jamari. Can Jamari learn to live by tribal code and abide by the Rule of Attachment? Can he perform his tribal duties for the betterment of the tribe? As Jamari learns the ways of the tribe he must embark on his own personal journey of discovery about what it means to become a man.

WASHINGTON, Sept 20 (Reuters) – A U.S. Air Force U-2 spy plane crashed shortly after takeoff during a training mission on Tuesday morning in California, killing one of the pilots and injuring the other, the Air Force said.

Both the pilots had ejected from the aircraft, which crashed in an unpopulated area of Sutter County. The Air Force declined further comment, saying the crash was under investigation.

The single-engine aircraft is manufactured by Lockheed Martin Corp.

Why We Care So Much About Brad And Angelina’s Divorce

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are divorcing. Seems strange how much energy and personal time we invest in complete strangers. And then when something like this happens it startles us and makes us feel sad. Sad for the end of an era when our idealization of what a life could be is writ large in the relationship of someone else. It’s also a cold, unwelcome reminder that life and dreams and other people are never quite what they seem to be. Even if they’ve been the stars of your fantasies for half a lifetime.

But what else is there to do once you’ve built a glass house for someone else’s marriage or life, except knock it down. It’s so human of us. To peer over the fence at another’s way of life out of voyeuristic curiosity, only to shake our heads and tisk our tongues in disapproval. It’s also so human of us to forget or choose to ignore this infallible truth – that all humans are human.

It’s a truth that is the impenetrable foundation for a more forgiving and compassionate life and world-view. But it’s so much more interesting to hold out hope for the secret gods among us. It tickles our sense of separateness between “us and them.” And confirms our belief that other’s lives are more fulfilling and interesting. We also proclaim with vicarious arrogance that we would do it differently and here’s how.

I’ve only just started to outgrow the inclination for celebrity worship that consumed my teens and twenties. But even still, it’s only graduated to a different, more sophisticated version of the same – this time it’s dead writers instead of reality stars and historic leaders instead of pop singers.

Maybe we’re genetically predisposed to admiration turned idol-worship. It’s been so human for so long, even Moses can attest. I guess what I’m getting at is at the core maybe a deeper (or deeply rooted) fallacy that “what is out there is greener than what’s in here.” It’s got to be! we cry. But maybe if we’d start to look at life with the truth that all humans are indeed human, there would be less hero worship and more appreciation for the preciousness in each of us. Maybe more would be done to help the less fortunate. Maybe more of ourselves we’d make.

The Undercurrent of Anxiety and What I’m Doing About It

Anxiety seems to be a constant undercurrent in my life right now. It hums as I drive to work, blares when I feel weird in a social situation, whispers as I get ready for bed at night, and threads its fingers through the majority of my waking–and sometimes even unconscious– moments. It’s been thinly veiled beneath the surface of my life for as long as I can remember.

I’ve been taking steps to change this “fact.” I’ve had multiple instances of therapy over the years and have refused to take medication up until this point. There is absolutely nothing wrong with combining whatever works for you and your mental health, whether it’s just therapy, or therapy and some form of exercise, or any mixture of whatever you can think up. No plan will work for everyone, and it does take some trial and error. That’s what beginning to take medication is for me at this point.

Last night, I stood in my kitchen with a glass of water in one hand and a teeny-tiny pill in the other. I could hear the faint dripping of my bathroom sink as the seconds turned into ten minutes. I thought I had already done the hard part–seeing a doctor and discussing options, along with actually picking up a prescription. It turns out that almost every part of making this decision was difficult. I had anxiety about my anxiety, and even as I type this I’m nervous about taking the medicine last night and admitting it here. Yesterday, I debated whether or not I should take it for the thousandth time since receiving the prescription. And then I decided I was worth more than whatever negativity I may encounter from making the decision to do so.

This was written firstly so there’s something out in the world that encourages people to think about their mental health and how it could be improved. I’m typing this secondly for a kind of catharsis. Both reasons are valid. I’m ready to try something new to combat my anxiety, even if it’s terrifying to admit it. I’m ready to take yet another step in my life and overall mental health journey. Join me if you’d like (with a medical professional’s supervision, of course). There’s strength in honesty, in facing fears, and in uniting around and fighting back against an awful thing like anxiety.

Please visit the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Mental Health site or the National Alliance of Mental Illness’ resource page to learn more and find help.

The Exchange Student Survival Kit


Study abroad has never been so popular. Students are embarking on life-changing adventures, and they need some tried and true advice. The Exchange Student Survival Kit has become the essential guide for young people traveling abroad, helping them better understand the unique experience of international exchange programs. More important, it shows students how to avoid many common misunderstandings and problems that can occur in the course of their adjustment to a new culture, a new family, a new school and a new community. Based on her years of research and professional involvement with AFS Intercultural Programs, Dr. Hansel has filled the book with examples taken from the experiences of dozens of exchange students from a broad spectrum of cultures. This much-awaited new edition includes New communications technology as it affects the experience: e-mail, instant messaging, cell phones, online games and blogs and information searches. Important advice on personal safety and pressing concerns for parents and students in light of war, terrorism and crime. Changes in society and family life that affect travelers: fast food replacing family meals, a new emphasis on religious beliefs, consumerism and globalism. For students going abroad, the Survival Kit is the first thing to pack!

Harry Reid Uses Weekend Terror Attacks To Highlight Gun Law Loopholes

WASHINGTON ― The weekend bombings in New York and New Jersey offer further evidence that the nation needs to close a loophole that lets people listed on the terrorism watch list buy guns and explosives, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said Monday.

“Right now, as we speak, there is a loophole that allows potential FBI terror suspects to legally purchase guns and explosives,” Reid (D-Nev.) said in Senate floor remarks, arguing that it would be “really, really easy” for the Senate to close that loophole. “A person with suspected ties to terrorism can walk into a store now and buy all the explosives, all the guns, all the ammunition they want.”

Reid’s remarks followed the arrest in New Jersey of a man wanted in the bombings after a gunfight with police. 

Reid pointed to the bombings as reason to pass legislation known as the No Fly No Buy bill that would bar people on the FBI’s terrorism watch list and the government’s no-fly list from buying weapons. Although there was bipartisan support for the bill, Republicans defeated it, saying it would rob gun buyers of their Second Amendment rights.

Officials have not said how the bombing suspect, Ahmad Khan Rahami, acquired the materials to make his explosives or the gun police say he used to fire on officers. It’s not clear that the No Fly No Buy bill would have had any impact on his ability to do so, or whether he was even on the government’s radar.

But Reid said that was beside the point.

“One thing is for sure. It would prevent the next attack,” Reid said.

“We know this loophole shouldn’t exist. We know terror suspects shouldn’t be giving a free pass to buy all the guns and all the explosives that they want,” Reid said. “And we know that the American people want this loophole closed.”

With the November elections looming and the measure having been defeated already, it was unlikely that GOP leaders would bring it back. 

But by attempting to stir new interest in the issue, Reid could be trying to give voters something else to think about when they go to the polls.

Conquer Fear Of Public Speaking Through Emotional Intelligence

Written by Patrick Donadio and Dr. Gleb Tsipursky, Intentional Insights Co-Founder and President

2016-09-16-1473994947-7720306-student1.png

This article first appeared on the blog of Intentional Insights, a nonprofit organization that empowers people to refine and reach their goals by providing research-based content to help improve thinking, feeling, and behavior patterns.

___________________________________________________________________

What do you feel when you imagine standing up in front of an audience? Visualize the bright lights in your face, see all those people looking at you and expecting you to deliver a top-notch performance. Do butterflies start fluttering about in your stomach? Do your palms start to sweat? Does your head get light?

Indeed, research shows the large role played by speech anxiety in blocking our ability to give great speeches. However, public speaking is vital in being able to make progress in many careers.

Fortunately, a few tips can go a long way to build up confidence and address fears around public speaking. Fortunately, a little work can go a long way in building confidence and addressing fears about public speaking. Research shows that those with some training in public speaking not only improve their own communication, but can successfully teach others how to give better speeches. As a scholar of the role of emotions in public life, I decided to team up with Patrick Donadio to figure out the best strategies to address public speaking fears. He is a keynote speaker and communication/speech coach with over 30 years of experience working with leaders and their organizations, who authored the forthcoming Communicating with IMPACT. Together, we came up with a set of four research-informed techniques that anyone can use to improve their public speaking skills.

The keys to overcoming fear are mental preparation and practice. Emerson said, “Do the thing you fear and the death of fear is certain!” Now, you are never going to get rid of it totally, but we can help you get rid of most of it.


1. Focus on Dealing with the Fear Itself

Recognize that the first thing to do is to deal with the fear itself rather than focus on the speech. Sure, some anxiety is useful. It gets adrenaline going and can give you energy and enthusiasm. Yet beyond that limited amount, if you don’t deal with the fear, you won’t be able to give a great speech, no matter how hard you try.

This fear comes from your emotional self, not your rational self. It’s not helpful for you to have fear to achieve your goal of giving a great speech, but your emotional self doesn’t know that. You need to use intentional thinking strategies to manage your emotions in order to reach your goals.

To address your fear, remember you are not unique in your fear. There would not be the extensive research on speech anxiety if you were! Scientists even have a special term for this fear – glossophobia. Knowing that this term exists, and that it is a well-studied topic, should relieve some fear for you.

2. Be Positive

Next, apply the science-based strategy of positive self-talk. Give yourself a pep talk and psyche yourself up. You can do this in many different ways. Some people meditate, others pray, others listen to music, and others go jogging. There are many different ways to get your energy level high. Whatever works for you, do it! If you’re not prepared mentally, you won’t be prepared.

Besides positive self-talk, use positive thinking. If you want to be an effective public speaker, you have to believe in yourself. If you do not believe in yourself, how do you expect other people to believe in you? Remind yourself that you know more about the topic than the audience does. Now, you can expect a few people out there may be more knowledgeable. You are not going to know more than everybody does. However, chances are if you done your homework and picked a topic you know about you will know more than most people in your audience.

3. Use Your Body Well

Regardless of whether you use the strategies above, right before I get up to speak, you may get a little nervous. You have a lot of excess energy in there. You do not want to get rid of all of it, and believe me, you will not, but you want to get rid of some of it. Try some “tense and relax” techniques.

Clench and relax your fists. Clench your fists really hard, and then release them. Can you feel the tension leaving? It really works. Some people get a lot of tension in their necks, if you do try shoulder shrugs. Push your shoulders up to your ears hold them there for 10 seconds and release. A good overall tension reliever is stretching exercises. Do some deep knee bends, stretch your arms up, open your hands really wide and then close them. All of these exercises are good ways to release some of that tension.

4. Practice, Practice, Practice

Practice the speech to gain more confidence in your ability. It is especially helpful to do so in the exact room where you will be giving the speech. Get up in front of the room and try to envision what it is going to be like when you give my speech. This will help you feel more comfortable when you speak, and fill you with greater confidence.

If you can’t practice in the room, try to use visualization, a research-based strategy widely employed by top athletes. Visualize what you know about the room and the audience, and imagine giving the speech. See with your mind’s eye everyone staring at you, listening with rapt attention. Imagine the applause breaking out after your speech, and your boss giving you a big thumbs-up sign after you finished.

Speaking is a skill that grows stronger with practice and weaker with disuse. The secret to improving your speaking skills is experience. Where can you get speaking opportunities? They exist all around us–at work, in community groups, at a church. You can also set up speaking engagements at various organizations like Fraternal Order of Police, Toastmasters, Urban League, Community Action Agencies, Farm Bureaus, Rotary Clubs, Knights of Columbus, Kiwanis Club, church groups, or League of Women Voters. These are all great opportunities to practice. Remember, your first speech may be your worst speech, but you will keep getting better and less anxious going forward!

Even experienced public speakers may continue to experience fear. These tips, widely used by experienced speakers and informed by research, can help anyone minimize the impact of speaking anxiety. The sooner you get up in front of a group, realize that you have something important to say, and say it, the sooner you’ll get rid of your fear.

9 Things To Know When Someone You Love Is Suffering From Depression

This was originally published on Scary Mommy.

I’ve watched people I love suffer from depression my whole life–I know what it’s like to confront the disease from the outside looking in. I know about the very complicated mix of concern and anger and fear, and about trying to find that balance between helping someone you love suffer less while also taking care of your own needs. And even though there’s no set formula for how to walk through all of it, here are a few things I’ve picked up along the way:

It’s not personal. What I had to accept when my boyfriend was depressed was that despite how it felt, nothing was being done to me. It was just happening. It wasn’t because I was doing anything wrong or because he was a bad person, and it wasn’t because he didn’t love me. It was so hard not to think, “If he loved me more…” or “If I could make him happier…” but ultimately I came to accept the fact that depression, like any disease, is bigger than even the strongest of relationships.

That’s not really your person.Depression is so insidious precisely because it doesn’t present like most diseases. It lives in the body and the mind — it distorts perspective most of all. I had to continually remind myself that my boyfriend just wasn’t there anymore. The more I could recognize when the disease was at work, the more patience I could muster.

It was so hard not to think, ‘If he loved me more…’ or ‘If I could make him happier…’ but ultimately I came to accept the fact that depression, like any disease, is bigger than even the strongest of relationships.

You are no one’s savior.Despite what Hollywood might have you believe, love does not always conquer all, and yours won’t either. It’s only natural to think that if you just love this person enough and try hard enough, that you’ll be able to save him. But depression isn’t just a bad mood or a little sadness; it’s embedded into genetic coding — it lives in the chemicals in a person’s brain that inform her sense of pain and pleasure. Trying to treat someone else’s depression with care and concern is as futile as trying to treat someone’s diabetes that way. And when you try, you both just end up feeling small. You can show up for them and make sure they know you love them. You can cut them some slack where you might not otherwise. That is all.

Take care of yourself. For a time I got so caught up in “fixing” my boyfriend that I forgot about everything else, including myself. Somewhere along the way I’d decided that nothing could be right in my life until he got better — it got to the point where I couldn’t even figure out how I was feeling until I knew what kind of mood he was in. All that did was add to the pressure and anxiety we were both already feeling. What I finally came to realize was that I was allowed to be happy even if he wasn’t. In fact, it was better for both of us if I was. Once I began to step back into my own life, he had the space he needed to get better.

What I finally came to realize was that I was allowed to be happy even if he wasn’t. In fact, it was better for both of us if I was.

Patience. It is a slow and grueling process, and it isn’t always linear. Recovery will take exactly as long as it takes, and not a moment less.

Let go. You have no way of knowing how long it will take or what needs to happen before recovery can begin. Worrying and wondering about it will not make a bit of difference, and it will only take you further from your own life.

You’re allowed to have your own feelings about it.I cannot stress this one enough. When my boyfriend got sick, I knew everything there was to know about depression: that it wasn’t personal, that he wasn’t choosing it, that it was so much bigger than our relationship and it had nothing to do with his feelings for me. And yet, when it was all happening — when he wasn’t showing up for me and I found myself alone in my relationship — it didn’t matter what I knew. It felt awful. And I was allowed to feel awful. Just because someone else has a disease doesn’t mean that all of your feelings go away. Just because it’s not a choice doesn’t mean that you aren’t hurting. And you get to feel whatever it is that you feel about it. You’re allowed to be sad and frustrated and bewildered, and you’re allowed to be angry that your needs aren’t getting met.

Just because someone else has a disease doesn’t mean that all of your feelings go away. Just because it’s not a choice doesn’t mean that you aren’t hurting.

Compassion — for both of you. Just because you get to have your feelings doesn’t mean you get to act any way you want. You should strive for patience and compassion always. But when you fall short of them, you should also go easy on yourself — it doesn’t make you are a bad person. It makes you are a human being going through something that is hard and terrifying and real, and the fact is that you won’t always be your best self. You will make mistakes and say things you wish you hadn’t. Luckily, you are not powerful enough to make or break anyone’s recovery.

You are collateral damage, plain and simple. Regardless of intentions or the nature of depression, your pain is real and isn’t any less important than anyone else’s. You are also a person standing in the muck of someone’s depression — allow yourself the space to recognize that reality.
